Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Computer hangup I am running anAcerPower 1000 desktop computer with Windows XP. My problem is on occasion when browsing I point the hand with the protruding finger on where I want to go and click. What often happens is that the computer semi-freezes, that is I can move it around, click on something,but nothing happens. The only thing that will workis the exit. I can getout of theprogram but that's all. Something that puzzles me is that sometimes everything worksnormally. And this occurs only in Windows Internet Explorer. A'm open to suggestions.

Temporary freezing like you described can be caused by the site you are trying to get to, having too much traffic, or the site having allot of commercials or ads or media that slows you down until your browser can digest it.

If it happens on the same site all the time, its the site.
If it happens all the time on numerous sites it probably indicates that you need more RAM to surf efficiently.

Thank you and Good luck.

Can I clone a Windows XP hard drive from another computer and expect it to run on the Vostro 1000?


You can in a way, but you will need to download a lot of XP drivers from Dell to run XP on a Windows7 computer.
You can not just swipe out Windows7 for XP.
For better answers about this go to http://www.dslreports.com/forum/microsoft they will walk you through this.

I need drivers for cannon printer BJC 85 to run on windows 7


There are no officially supported Windows 7 or Windows Vista drivers for the Canon BJC-85 printer. If you have the 64 bit version of Windows 7, then you have no choice other than to buy a new printer or use this printer in Windows XP Mode. If you have Windows 7 64 bit then please post back here with that information or create a new FixYa problem, and I will help you set up XP Mode so that you can use your printer.

If you don't know whether you have 64 bit or 32 bit Windows 7, then please follow these steps.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "MSINFO32" into the dialog box and press enter.
3. Look for item "System Type" and note whether the value is x64 or x86. (x86 means you have a 32 bit OS)

Assuming you have the 32 bit version of Windows 7:
1. Go ahead and download and install the XP drivers by following the link and clicking on "I Agree - Begin Download". Here are the drivers for Windows XP: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/bjc_series/bjc_85#DriversAndSoftware

2. Save file to the Desktop for easy access.

3. Right click on the downloaded file and select "Properties".
4. Select the Compatibility tab and check the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 2)".

5. If the installer completes, then restart the computer and attempt to print from the Canon.

If the installer fails follow the next set of directions:
1. Make sure the printer is plugged in, turned on, and connected to the computer via USB.

2. Press Win+R to open Run command.
3. Type "DEVMGMT.MSC" and press enter.

4. Look for a device that has a yellow exclamation point next to it. If you have more than one, look for a device that says "USB Input Device" or "Unknown USB Input Device".

5. Right click on the device that has a yellow exclamation point next to it and select Properties.
6. Click the Driver tab and select Update Driver.
7. Click "Browse my computer for driver software".
8. Select "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
9. Scroll down to "Printers" and select Next.
10. Click "Have Disk" and select "Browse"
11. Browse to "C:\Temp\bjc85Win2kXPv150" and select "bjc85.inf" and then click Open and then OK.

12. Ignore all errors that Windows gives you and install the driver, restart the computer, and attempt to print.


Good luck, post back if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa,

Microsoft office word requires the file msointl.dll to run. run setup again to assure proper installation.


On occasion the installation may become corrupted for a variety of reasons.

To fix it you just do a REPAIR install of MS OFFICE.

just place your CD in the computer and it should start up and select INSTALL
It will check that you have a copy of office and then offer the REPAIR option

If it does not start up from the CD browse to the CD and select SETUP and run that.

Have your registration number handy too as on occasion it has been known to ask for it.

I have a 5yr old Dell w/XP and use IE and Firefox. Lately I have been unable to access my control panel. I click on start then click on control panel but all I get is the ever aggravating hourglass and...


Here are a couple suggestions. 1.) You can run windows system restore back to a date when you knew your system was running fine.
If that fail to fix your problem than, turn off windows restore. You do not need to enter control panel to do this as long as you have My Computer icon sitting on your desktop. (IF not, right click once on a clear spot on your desktop). From the pop-up window left click once on properties.
Display Properties will open. Click on the Desktop tab. Than click on the Customize Desktop button. Desktop Items will open. Make sure there is a check mark in the box next to, My Computer. That will add the My Computer icon to your desktop.
Right click on it once & from the pop-up window slide to & left click on properties. Click on system restore tab.
Reason for this: if your system has a virus or Trojan it will copy its self into system restore. Turning it off prevents this. 2.) Run your antivirus software & check for issues. 3.) Download the free software named ccleaner; http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ & install it. Run the standard cleaner. Than click on the registry icon and scan for issues. This will remove double registry keys & corrupt keys. Than restart your system. When windows finishes loading click on update windows from the start button. Check for hardware & software updates & install em'. (If any). When you feel everything is running correctly you can re-enable windows system restore & create a restore point.
If everything above did not fix your problem you may have no choice but to repair windows. Load your windows restore CD into your CD-ROM drive and boot to it. Running Dell's restore should repair windows. Most of your data should be fine. Some programs may need to be reinstalled.

Cheers'

If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.
