It really upsets me that a product I bought from you messed up my computer and now you want me to spend more money to tell me how to fix it. The instructions that came with the switch states "free technical support" Please follow this claim and tell me how to fix my computer.

My computer will not boot up with the Grandtec Keyboard 2500 dongle in the USB port. Once it boots up, I insert the dongle and it works fine. I had this problem with the Vista OS and now with the newly...

This sounds like a driver issue .... after plugging in the USB dongle, go to the Control Panel>System and Security>System and select Device manager. After Device Manager opens up you should see "Keyboards". toggle open the triangle, to the left of the word "keyboards", and you should see the 2500 listed. If not, right click on the keyboard listed and select update driver software. Then select "Search automatically for the updated driver software". If a new driver is found, it will ask you if you want to use it. If not, try uninstalling the driver that is there and re-booting your computer. Then when you plug in the USB dongle it should automatically install the needed driver.

My canon MP730 printer went offline after I tried printing an address on a custom sized envelop. A repair Technician remotely got it back on the ready mode but I now get the message that the printer is not...

This is rather "ancient" model as printers go, it come on the market in 2002. It is still available, this meant Canon done something ok with it...

You done everything what is available for home/small office user. I will try to help you solve this problem, but seem like motherboard on this printer is on the way out.

Please follow this procedure:

1. download and install ccleaner for all users, do not install yahoo or any other bar! I hate all bars with passion!
2. disconnect USB cable from your printer (or computer - whichever is easy)
3. uninstall all printer related programs and delete printer from printer folrder
4. switch off computer and wait 20sec
5. switch computer on and run it in safe mode (taping f8 during boot-up will allow you this selection) as an administrator
6. run ccleaner, as last run registry clean
7. restart computer in "normal" mode
8. install your freshly downloaded printer software and when ask, connect USB cable.

Simple removal of the printer and re-installation do not work as Windows have nasty habit of hiding old files adn re-use them even if you supply new ones.

If printer do not respond to this installation, to verify that this is a problem, try to install it on another computer. If it works on another computer, then you have something installed on this computer which prevent you from correct installation of the printer.

If that is the case - disconnect you rcomputer from network, disbale firewall and antivirus, then run ccleaner and clean everything what you do not need, go to tools and remove any program which you do not use or need, check your boot sector and disable all junk loading on the bootaup, be it any messanger, itunes, adobe or whatever installed itself there but it is not essential to run the computer. Run ccleaner again, then re-boot in safe mode and run ccleaner again, including registry.

Repeat steps 2 to 8 from above. but with disabled antivirus and firewall.

If your computer still will not see the printer, change usb port.

Hope this short advice will solve your problem, please let me know if it worked, canon unfortunately do not provide firmware flush options for home users.

please load xp again and press f 6 when you see it on the screen to load sata devices .
sata softwares and drivers are required in certain computers to load windows so while loading you will be asked to load those drivers through a floppydrive, so u must have
1)sata raid drivers (according to the hard ware installed in hp.)this piece of hard ware will not allow xp to boot if you dont give its drivers through a floppy drive(during installation and setup of windows.
so u must now have
1 floppy drive(usb)
2 a floppy disk with sata drivers
3)usb port to attach the usb floppy drive
after loading xp you will see xp running trouble free.
a easy solution is to load vists and the drivers are already there in vista cd.

Hello There,
This problem is not common,
Try these:

1) Re-install the software - see what happens.

2) Un-install the software if 1) doesn't work and try using keyboard.

3) Read about common problems in the software and keyboard:

4) If all these fail then call Microsoft about this problem and let them diagnose it. They are the makers so they should know what to do.
