Burner not installed message

My PC is not 3 months old and I have already taken it back for a message saying I have no burner installed and eratic performance everywhere else !!! When I took this new 2 gig Vista home I couldn't get it set up right because things would not load properly, and I was told they had to "repair" that time since itr wasn't a day old I guess....they charged me 45 diagnostic???...I already got the message on screen but they did nort include the burner driver in the CD software and when I ask find a way to put it off. Now this is trhe third time and all I need is ther software the way I see it...OR realy a brand new computer that does not need fixed "repaired" the first day out of the box. Can I inmstall a burner online?

James, I have found in the past that many computer manufacturers only install a trial version of some software. One major manufacturer, who shall remain nameless custum built a P.C online that included a CD burner, but I found out later that even though they installed the burner, they provided no burning software. It sounds as though you have no CD burning software installed. First, from the start button, go to control panel, then to add remove software. A list will compile showing all software installed on your machine. If you do not have a CD, or DVD burning program installed and your computer came with no CD's( most today do not) that may contain that program, you will probably have to buy your own at this point. Just to clarify, do you only have a CD burner, or is it a CD burner/ DVD ROM, or do you have a DVD burner. If you have a DVD burner, then you are capable of burning both CD's and DVD's. If you need to purchase burning software I would suggest you do an internet search for Nero, This is the software that I use. It works well in addition to being easy to use.On the Nero site I have in the past purchased their OEM version, the OEM versions are usually available at very good prices. I prefer to purchase software online and have a disc mailed to me as opposed to downloading it online just so that I have a hard copy if I ever need it. If you are limited to burning CD's, just get the CD software. If the device you have installed in your computer is a DVD burner, then purchase the DVD software and you can burn on both formats.

I can't get netflix to work. error message N8161

2/24/2013 Netflix Error Code N8161, Protection Error Problem became a recent problem on 3 of my five XP computers, one Home Edition, the balance are XP Pro. After trying uninstalling and re-installing Silverlight, all the adobe products and Media Player I finally resolved the problem by uninstalling the current Silverlight 5, restarting the PC and then and installing old version Silverlight 4. I had to search hard to find a site that both still offered it and that I trusted. Just don't let Microsoft Updates or Netflix demand to install Silver light temp you to update. Chrome insists on the Silverlight plug in update - DON'T DO IT. Firefox and IE8 seem OK, at least for now.

I want to create an if else statement with regards to this problem for ms excel 2007. the conditions are if month>=3 plus 1/2 but if not then minus 1/2.

It seems to have botched your sign before the =3 but lets say that you used "less than" or equal to 3.
(if you used Greater Than, then simply replace "less than" with "greater than" in the example here)

The easiest thing to do is subtract 1/2 no matter what and then say if month is less than or equal to 3 then add 1.
this way, if the month is NOT less or equal to 3, it has already subtracted 1/2, satisfying the "if not" part.
If the month IS less or equal, it adds 1 which compensates for the 1/2 we already subtracted, plus another 1/2 giving an end result of plus 1/2.

This makes it a simple, single if statement that is satisfied in the other direction without having to overcomplicate the issue.

I think you have these options:-
1. Explain your problem to PC World and see if they can help.
2. Borrow a Windows XP Home Edition disc from a friend.
3. Download a Windows XP Home Edition disc from the internet. I don't know how legal this is, but as you have already got the legal copy installed and are only using the disc to install other programs you might be OK.

Iget yhe Yahoo page. It says

this can be due to two reasons.
first if you are trying to sign in ... it is possible that someone has logged on with you id so yahoo is denying another logon attempt. sometimes trying to log on when yahoo messenger is also logged in at the same time gives this error message. seleting temporary internet files can also help.

otherwise if this message comes up when trying to make a new yahoo id .. it simply means it is taken by someone else so try some other id.

Download Windows XP on new mother board Tktnologia

Hi I am vortash I have to say the only time I have come across this is when the system is equipped with on board HD graphics and Audio Bus driver requirements .. these modern drivers are not a normal requirement of XP and therefore it would not contain a drivers cab with the information required to set a system like up ,so it raises an error message . Especially now with Machines that use Quad core CPU's and in some case's duel core .
Most modern Laptops that use single core and standard audio have no problems with XP .. Microsoft has taken this on board well with the release of Windows 7 the new Beta program now available for free with a 12month trial basis in some areas it has a far superior data base of drivers available to it and should address any problems .. if you where lucky enough to register earlier this month you will have been given a key code to use and install any download of windows 7 some may still be available on the net .. windows 7 downloads certainly are from Microsoft themselves for one place .. and no doubt on Bit Torrent this trial is for 12 months then the program will shut down so install it on a secondry partion so that when it does you can go back to your old operating system to recover any files . I hope this has been of help top you Regards Vortash
