I have several excel files stored on my system. I used these files from the same computer daily. Yesterday, when i tried to open several files in Excel 2007 then i found following error on my co,puter...

  • Navigate to the folder containing the XLSX file you want to repair.
  • Right-click the file and select "Copy" and then right-click on a blank space within the folder and select "Paste." This action generates a backup copy of the corrupted file.
  • Open Microsoft Excel 2007 or later.
  • Click the "Office" button in the top left corner of the window and select "Open."
  • Navigate to the folder containing the copy of the XLSX file you generated previously and select it by single-clicking its icon.
  • Click the arrow located to the right of the "Open" button and select "Open and Repair."
  • Select "Repair." If you previously attempted this method and the process failed, try to extract only the values and formulas by selecting "Extract Data" instead. Regardless of the method you choose, your data will appear on the screen within a few seconds if the process completes successfully.

    How can I open a backup copy of my quickbooks without modifying my current books?

    Open QuickBooks. Go to "file" at the top right side of the page. Slide down to"open or restore company" and click on it. You will get a pop up box that says "what type of file to you want to open or restore?". Mark the box in the second choice that says "restore a back up copy". Then click "next" at the bottom left side of the box and it will take you to a screen that says "is the backup copy stored locally or online?". Unless you are using online back up service for a fee, your only choice is to mark the first box that says "local backup". Click on this box and then choose "next " on the bottom left side of the screen. Now you need to locate the back up copy that you wish to open. Click on the location of the file and choose "open" on the bottom right side of the screen. From that point you follow the prompts until the file opens. Opening a back up copy will not affect your current company file.

    Screen goes blank when fully open.

    The problem is with the connector contacts inside the hinge. Not sure what it would take to fix it, but probably a pretty penny. Make sure you get an estimate before getting it repaired, sometimes it's just better to buy a good, used one on Ebay, or a new one on sale. I've never heard of a quick "fix" for this problem, maybe someone else has an idea. Good luck.

    Screen shows for 2 seconds then goes blank, if switch off and on again it shows for 2 seconds then off again.

    The probelm can be bad power supply due to bad caps (bulging top), bad inverter circuits, or bad lamps. Open it up and post back what you see so we can guide you further, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

    Macbook screen goes black after I log in.

    Since the screen does turn on at the login page, I would say that it doesn't seem as though anything is physically wrong with your computer. It sounds to me like it's a software issue. Either get someone to try and reinstall your video drivers or to back-up your documents, files, etc., format the hard drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of Mac OS.

    Screen goes blank

    I put a new CR2025 battery in my T5e671 Timex and it solved the problem.
    The screen no longer goes blank at any time.
    PS:Timex manual says "remove battery strap" to replace the battery.
    But it doesn't say HOW.-& I couldn't google an answer to that.
    Here is how:
    The metal strap goes across the middle of the battery and then goes over the edge of it on both sides.
    At both edges the metal strap goes over a nylon tab.
    One of those nylon tabs is notched, if you put the end of a paperclip in the notch, you can release the metal strap edge that runs under it.
