Sounds like either the hardware has become disabled or you lost your audio driver. To check this Right click the "My Computer" icon and select "Manage" A Computer Management window will come on the left hand side select device manager. This pulls up a list of every piece of hardware in your computer. If anything has a yellow " ! " next to it then the computer sees the hardware but can not run it due to an incorrect or missing driver. If there is a red " X " next to it then it has been disabled. To re-enable a component right click the icon and select enable. Finding the correct driver may be difficult, if you bought the computer from a store try going to the manufactures website. Go to Drivers/Support, usually you can type in the Model or Serial number of your computer and pull up every driver you may need.

SOURCE: about printer

Sounds very odd the printer would not be supported by windows XP as it is the main OS used today, go to the samsung website and search the driver download section for a XP driver, if the driver on the cd has a known issue with SP3 then they will have released a new version.

Could I have accidentally hit a key on my Toshiba Tecra that caused the sound to not work


There should be a speaker icon in the lower right, "taskbar" right click on speaker icon and click "adjust audio properties" if grayed out audio driver is missing, if okay! check the mute box and click apply, now check the box underneath and click apply, the audio should work.

My desktop keeps disappearing


Hi!

Remove unnecessary programs installed on your computer. This will help you save space and then more room for special processes for system performance.

Next, I advise you to run a full computer scan. This will help eliminate viruses or spywares on your PC and I think which is also the culprit to your Desktop suddenly dissapearing. Viruses are nasty and they will do everything to bug your computer down.

All main menu icons dissapeared while installing an app from cydi


I would do a full reset on the iphone which you can get to by going to the settings and scroll to the bottom and it should give you a reset option this will delete everything but assuming you make a backup whilst in itunes you should be able to re synch it as far as contacts and anything else you want from your itunes afterwards.
