The setup menu keeps flashing on the screen and I cant' get it to stop also the remote control is not working


Reset your TV. Unplug it from AC mains, and pulg it back after 5 minutes of so. This must make it a hard reset. If this do not help you, contact the service center.

MultiBoot USB Flash - Survival Guide


Grub4DOS is a boot manager
that can be easily installed to a USB flash.
It allows booting multiple operating systems
from a simple graphical user interface.

laikexpert_5.jpg

1.) Format the USB flash drive in the FAT32 or NTFS filesystem. (Windows)
(
Download and start HPUSBFW.EXE )http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/HPUSBFW.EXE
-REMINDER!!! all data will be deleted on the USB flash-


1.a) Download necessary files
Grub4Doshttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/grub4dos-0.4.4.zip
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Grub4Dos%20gui%20Installer%201.1.rar

1.b) Extract the downloaded zip files into separate folders.
For example:
Grub4DOS to C:Grub4DOS
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1 to C:
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1

2.)
If your flashdrive is not already plugged into the computer, plug it in now.

2.a) The next step is to run the Grub4DOS Installer.
Browse to the Installer's unzipped folder using Windows Explorer.

2.b) Run the grubinst_gui.exe program (Windows XP)
Right-click on grubinst_gui.exe Run as administrator (Windows 7)

2.c) Once the program is started, select the Disk option,
then click the Disk Refresh button and then select
your flashdrive from the dropdown box.
IMPORTANT:If you accidentally select the wrong drive,
you may not be able to boot your system without doing a boot repair.

2.d) Now click the Part List Refresh button,
then the dropdown box and finally select the Whole disk (MBR) option

2.e) Click the Install button to install Grub4DOS to the MBR
of the flashdrive.
Hopefully, you'll get the message that the installation was successful.

3.) The next step is to copy the grldr file to the flashdrive's
root folder.Using Windows Explorer, browse to the folder
where you unzipped
the Grub4DOS program and copy the file to the flashdrive.

3.a) Grub4DOS is now installed on the flashdrive.

4.)Download file
menu.lsthttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/menu.lst

4.a)You need to copy the menu.lst file to USB Flash

4.b)Create a folder Boot on a USB flash drive.
in this folder create new folders
Splash
menus

4.c) Download file
Snaiyahttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/Snaiya

4.d) On USB flash-open the folder Boot
Within-we see Splash folder. Copy the file Snaiya into it.


5.) Add Puppy Linux on a multiboot USB flash

laikexpert_0.png

5.a) Download the Puppy ISO imagehttp://www.puppylinux.org/

5.b) Create a folder Puppy on a USB flash drive.

5.c) Take from the downloaded ISO, file
PUP_420.SFS (from the folder Puppy)
Rename it to pup_420.sfs
and copy it to
USB flash.

5.d) Copy all other files from the downloaded ISO (from the folder Puppy)
to the folder /Boot/Puppy/ (Create a folder on a USB flash)

5.e) In the menu.lst add a:

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

5.f) Preserve the changes and now menu.lst looks like this:

gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/Splash/Snaiya
timeout 30
default 0

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

title Boot from CD-rom
cdrom --init
map --hook
chainloader (cd0)

title ShutDown PC
halt

title Reboot PC
reboot

5.g) Puppy on our MultibootUSB flash-is ready for operation.
(Now we can restart our computer and see how it looks and works)

Depending on the options your motherboard, it is necessary when starting
your computer keyboard press: F8 or F12 or Esc, etc..
Thus you will appear a menu where you choose your USB flash drive.

When i start up the laptop. the screen flashes continouosly for a good 5 minutes


Does it boot up? Are you able to use it after 5 minutes? What does the flashing look like? Is it flashing the boot up posting processes?

Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode and see if it flashes for 5 minutes?

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal.

My led on caravan ac &rec flash how do ifix it


it is flashing because you have had power loss of some kind. so you will have to recalibrate the unit. start by warming the van up for about 5 minutes. leave it running, then press and hold the bottom left and bottom right buttons together till they start to flash.
(they will flash different then they are now)

once they flash let go of the buttons and wait untill they stop flashing.

then turn van off. wait 5 seconds and then start van again. Now press and hold the bottom left and top left buttons together untill it flashes.

once the flashing stops then press top left button and you should be complete. :)

My Fujitsu ScanSnap S510 only flashes 5 blue lights


I got off the phone with Fujitsu and i was told you need to make sure that the ScanSnap Icon is in the system tray without a Red Line cross through it, so if it is not in your system tray start the snap scan program, if it's disabled re-enable it and you should be good.
