My internet explorer stopped working! How do I reinstall it!


IE 8 is getting on in years and is less than fully functional with lots of sites and some completely reject it. If your operating system will support a later IE you should install a later version.

I suggest you go to the control panel and select add or remove programmes and then uninstall your old IE 8 and any other programmes you no longer use and then carry out a system scan with your anti-virus and Spy-bot if you have it.

It is difficult to download a new browser without having a functional browser already but you should be able to download a browser on a friend's computer and burn to a cd or store on memory stick to install on your machine.

An internet browser doesn't take up much hard-drive space and it is a good idea to have at least two and there are many to choose from.

Need a code for micsoft acc so i can emial


Hello Derrick, If you haven't made any changes to you system... you can use the Control Panel functions to; view/make changes to your Windows settings. You need to make sure - that your MS "application" is "checked" as being in use/available. If the Operating System is NOT windows OR if you do NOT have internet access ...you can't get on the internet-send/or receive emails -etc. If you changed from an Internet browser like: Internet Explorer ( IE ) to another browser like Mozilla Firefox ....you MUST setup the changes - so your "new/different" browser can send or receive emails.

Dell firmware for Seagate SAS harddisk


The firmware for any electronics device tells the hardware how to properly function.


Most devices rarely need a firmware upgrade, however, computer products such as a Seagate hard drive need to have the firmware updated periodically due to computers constantly going through operating system upgrades.


Luckily, you can update your Seagate hard drive firmware with an Internet connection and a few clicks of your mouse.


Connect your Seagate hard drive to your computer if the hard drive is external.


Launch your Internet browser and navigate to the Seagate.com website.

When the site loads click the "Downloads" button.


Click on the hard drive listing you currently own.

This brings up all of the most current downloads for your Seagate hard drive.


The listings of the hard drives have the image, so match your hard drive to the image online if you are not sure what drive you have.


The user manual states what hard drive you currently own also.


If you don't have your owners manual, open "My Computer" (or "Computer") and right-click the hard drive icon and select "Properties."


Here the computer states exactly what model of hard drive you have.


Click the Firmware update and click the "Download" button to launch the download.


Click-and-drag the file into the hard drive if you are using an external hard drive

(open "My Computer," then double-click the removable hard drive icon).


Open the downloaded file and follow the prompts to install the updated firmware.


Hope this helps

My Computer takes forever to boot up How can I speed up my PC


Typically this is caused by a hard drive that is filling up with software, or fonts or other excess programmes.

Without spending money try these steps:

1.) Delete any unused programmes or fonts or any other uncesssary files
2.) Go to My Computer / right click on hard drive icon/ properties and then click on disc cleanup
remove any temp or cookie or browsing files
3.) As above, and go to TOOLS and schedule a disc check of the drive
4.) Reboot and go back to the above, this time click on TOOLS / Defragment files

After that, and if there is no noticable improvement, the options of obtaining a larger hard drive to enable a more efficient swap file (where windows puts files as it is working on them), is advised, as is upgrading the RAM. Both will make the system run more smoothly.

Access the GIMP "support-forum", and post your question there.

Or, if you are a programmer, you can write the code, and submit it to the GIMP project.

Bought a used laptop from military savage. When I turn on computer says no operating system found.


This is usually indicative of either the fact there is no hard drive installed in the system, or the hard drive is blank and there is no operating system. The third possibility is that there is a problem between the motherboard and the hard drive, not allowing the interface between the two to work. Check the hard drive and its connections first. You can always remove the hard drive and using an adapter attach it to another computer so it will be recognized as an external drive and access the drive for viewing the files if there are any.

When I take pictures I get too much brightness with sunlight in the background. How do i fix this?


You can use Photoshop cs4 or cs3..
But these softwares are paid software.
If you want something for free try out with Gimp or Irfan View, they are free..

Thanks and Regards

Hi when I turn on my fujitsu amilo pro v2055 it says operating software not found. Can anybody help


The operating system software is stored on the hard disk. The computer cannot detect the hard drive and therefore cannot load the operating system. It could be that it only needs reseating to get it operating again, if that does not work it could be a faulty disk drive or a faulty disk controller.
To test if the hard drive is OK, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug this adapter and drive into a working computer's USB port. If this computer see this as an external hard drive and you can view the contents of this drive, then it is OK. If you cannot see this drive then it is faulty.
You need to replace the hard drive in your computer and install Windows again to get an operating computer again.

I can't log onto my laptop


The error message means that system cannot see your hard drive and therefore can't recognize the operating system.
The fix can be simply just re-seating the hard drive or a more serious problem - a faulty hard drive or worse still a faulty disk controller.
You can remove the hard drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. This computer will see this as an external hard disk if hard drive is OK and you will be able to view the contents of this drive. (And this means you have a faulty disk controller on the motherboard.)
If you cannot see the hard drive then it is faulty and you can purchase a new hard drive and install it in the laptop and install Windows on this hard drive to get the laptop operational again.
