    If I am writing a Word document, sometimes the message comes up and closes the document.

    It also happens when I try to print a document, or occasionally when I am about to send a document.

    What kind of documents are you opening? Word documents? And what program are you referring to that closes?

You may want to run Word through maintence mode to see what is going on here, if it finds any issues it will attempt to repair it.

To do this:

1. Quit all Office programs. 2. Use one of the following procedures: • In Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, click Start, and then click Control Panel.

• In Windows 2000, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. 3. Open Add or Remove Programs. 4. Click Change or Remove Programs, click Microsoft Office 2003 (Microsoft Office Word 2003), or the version of Office or Word that you have in the Currently installed programs list, and then click Change. 5. Click Repair or Repair Word (Repair Office), and then click Continue or Next. 6. In Word 2003 and in earlier versions of Word, click Detect and Repair errors in my Word installation or click Detect and Repair errors in my Office installation. Then, click to select the Restore my Start Menu Shortcuts check box, and then click Install.

Seagate backup plus is beeping and will not pull up on computer??


Troubleshooter: Seagate Manager does not see my Seagate FreeAgent drive Troubleshooting in case the Seagate Manager cannot detect the FreeAgent drive.
Sometimes, Seagate Manager (the software bundled with newer FreeAgent drives) does not see the drive.
This article focuses on drives that can be seen in Windows, but are not seen in the software.
If you are using Windows 8, please note that Seagate Manager is not supported in Windows 8, so you will need to use a different backup solution.

If the drive is not detected in Windows 7/Vista/XP, then use the external drive troubleshooters to try to resolve the non-detection issue.
After connecting the FreeAgent drive, please give it up to 1 minute to display in the middle of the main screen in Seagate Manager.
208575-1.jpg
If the drive does not display, open My Computer (Computer for Vista) and confirm the drive is listed there. The drive should be listed as "FreeAgent Drive". If you have formatted or renamed the drive, then it will show up with the name you provided.
If the drive does not display in My Computer (Computer for Vista), use the External Drive Troubleshooter to help resolve that issue before continuing.
If the drive is detected in Windows, check if the Seagate service is running.
  1. Right-click on the My Computer (Computer for Vista) icon.
  2. Choose Manage.
  3. In the Computer Management window, click Services and Applications.
  4. Open the Services area.

    208575-2.jpg
  5. Scroll down the Seagate Service (they are listed alphabetically).
  6. The Seagate service should display Started in the Status column.
    If it does not, right-click on the service and choose START.
  7. If the service reports as Disabled, enable it to start automatically.
    To do this, right-click on the service. A Status Type drop-down menu will appear. Click on the General tab. Select Automatic and click OK.
    208575-3.jpg
  8. Reboot the computer.
  9. If the service fails to start after you reboot with these settings, then check the logs of your Antivirus or Antispyware software to confirm they are not restricting the startup of this service, as some aggressive protection programs can prevent services from starting until you approve them. So, you may need to approve this program specifically in the Antivirus/Antispyware software. Please contact your anti-virus software support for help.
  10. If the service will not start or is working already, uninstall the software (for steps on uninstalling the software, see this article).
  11. Once the software is uninstalled, reboot the computer.
  12. Then reinstall the software by opening the InstallSeagateManager.EXE file on the FreeAgent drive. If you have removed the software from the drive, it can be downloaded from the download center.
  13. If the drive is still not seen by the computer, connect the drive to other USB ports on the computer.
    Some eSATA cards block the drive's identity and prevent it from working. Updates have been made to Seagate Manager and to some vendors' eSATA drivers to help this issue. See our eSATA tips article for details.
  14. If the drive still does not display after these steps, please contact Technical Support.
Check Required Windows Component Installations
1. Check to make sure you have the MSXML Parser 6.0 installed:
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "MSXML Parser 6.0"
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=993c0bcf-3bcf-4009-be21-27e85e1857b1&displaylang=en
2. Make sure Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 installation
  • Open Control Panel
  • Open Add/Remove Programs / Programs & Features (Vista)
  • Check box for "Show All Updates"
  • Look for "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5".
If this is not found, visit Microsoft's website to install this component. 3. Try the steps listed here.
4. Remove the Seagate folder from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data (XP) or C:\Program Data folders (Vista) and reboot.
5. Download and install the newest Windows Installer.
6. Download newest Seagate Manager from our Website and re-install a clean copy. Note: Do not do the update when the message pops up saying one is available.

When I try to open Call of duty it apperas the error 998 and the message buffer overrun detected


Any time I've seen this error appear when playing a game it is caused by a bad graphics driver. I would suggest going to the website of the retailer that your graphics devices comes from and updating to the most recent driver and giving it a shot.

Many different things can cause buffer overruns. This is a common attack that hackers use to exploit bad C code. In this case, since it's a video game...I'm going to say graphics driver.

You can actually see an example of the same behavior here:

Recently I bought the Canon Ixus 220 HS compact camera. With the camera I received some software among other things Zoombrowser ex. Regretfully this program doesn't work properly from the start. When...


Is your Camera detected when connected to the PC via the PTP in the Device Manager? Check your "Device Manager". In Windows 7, sometimes the camera is not detected, but you can try "Workaround when the camera cannot be detected by Windows 7(when connected via PTP)". If the device is not detect in the Device Manager the software will not work.

The update is only for the software ie Zoombrowser(Win7x64) -> update to version ZoomBrowser EX 6.7.2 Updater.

Hope it helps & good luck.

Sir i purchased hitachi camera pen. it is detected


If you have installed the program. Uninstall it.

Unplug the pen (or any devices associated with it) from the computer.

1. Insert Disc and intstall the program.

2. When prompted, insert the device into the computer as instructed. Follow all instructions.

3. Once installed, remove disc, restart computer.

4. The computer will detect the device as the computer is loading. Wait for all "start up" programs to load, then select the program and it should open and operate.

If it is plugged into a USB Port, and is not being detected, try using another port. Do not plug such utilities into a Port Adapter, as it most likely will not be detected.

It must be plugged directly into a USB Port installed on the computer (or laptop).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

When I go to START and SHUTDOWN instead of shutting down like it use to do, I get a message instead that announces the programs that are still open. I would just like for it to shut down like it use to do.


Hello,

you are getting the message because probably you did not close opened programs or web page before you attempt shutting down.

Check your task bar and make sure all opened programs/application are closed before you shut down your computer.

This is all you need to do for your computer to shut-down in its normal way.

Also to be sure all programs are closed, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete on your keyboard and task manager icon will pop-out. Then you can close any opened program from there.

Take care.
