Windows Fax and Scan, available in the Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows Vista, makes it easy to send and receive faxes, scan documents and images, and share those items with others-right from your computer.
If you have Vista Home Basic/Premium and you want to fax from your
computer, you will need a third-party faxing program that is compatible
with Vista.
here is a site with fax software you can buy that will do what you need.

Please rate if this solves your problem.

[Be warned: this will erase everything on your drive. Be careful.]<br /> <ol> <li>Plug in your USB Flash Drive</li> <li>Open a command prompt as administrator (Right click on Start &gt; All Programs &gt; Accessories &gt; Command Prompt and select "Run as administrator"</li> <li>Find the drive number of your USB Drive by typing the following into the Command Prompt window:<br /> <span>diskpart<br /> list disk</span><br /> The number of your USB drive will listed.

Most BIOS's allow you to hit a key at boot and select a boot option.<br /> <br />

ACER ASPIRE X3910 EVENT ID 41 KERNEL POWER CRITICAL


If it just stopped and restarted proper is nothing to worry cause it seam just like a memory dumping error or so ..If it asks to choose a boot on start ..just start normally or choose to start with the last known configuration that worked.
If it do not want to start it may be a case of corrupted boot file ..and need to repair the boot configuration using a operation system disk or the recovery partition ..My advice is to reinstall a clean copy if it makes troubles again ..It may have something in the system that cause it ..and reinstalling will remove the settings and programs ..and when you install them again try them one by one ..and you will know which one is not supported..

C:/hp/tmp/src/ and MyDVD.MSI keep popping up on my system. How can i get this to stop?


Hi,

It seems that particular application(Sonic) files might have got corrupted or not installed properly.

So you can try these steps:

1. Start -> Run -> Type %temp% -> click OK -> delete all the files( if you are not able to delete any files please skip those files)

2. Start -> Start -> Run -> Type temp -> click OK -> delete all the files ( if you are not able to delete any files please skip those files)

2.Click on start -> Run -> msconfig -> click on services tab -> on the same window at the left bottom you could see "hide all microsoft" option, put a check mark for hide all microsoft option and then disable all the services -> go to the startup tab -> right bottom you could see disable all -> click on disable all -> click on apply -> ok -> click on restart on the popup.

/quote

Make sure you put a check mark for "Hide all Microsoft" in the service tab before you disable all the services.

Vista Home Premium 64 bit. Iam getting error 80070005 stating it cannot search for windows updates and it encountered an unknown error. I am not a techie, just a grandma who uses the computer alot.


This error can occur for many reasons but generally assocated with IIS connection to a database. Seeing how your are a grandam and more than likely not connecting to anything and that your machine will not connect to windows update. I suspect you have a trogen, rootkit or some other malware. See if you can update your virus software and run a scan it may or may not detect anything. The worst case is that you will need to use your backup disks and re-install windows. You may need to get some onsite help with this. Your machine not being able to connect to either virsus update or windows update is always a dead give away that you have some form of malware infecting your PC.

How to fax from Acer Windows Vista using HDAUDIO Fax Modem


You have to add Microsoft Fax to your printers. You add this from add/remove Programs/Windows Components in XP, Vista should be similar. Once it's install just print your document to the Fax printer as you would to your regular printer. You will then be presented with a Wizard walking you through your Fax preferences and cover page settings.
