How do i update my photo shop on a dell 530 inspiron


To download the pictures from the camera you do not need to update the photo shop software ..Either use it like it is ..or ..just download the camera using the windows wizard ..or the software that came with it ..
For most windows..if you have the driver installed for the camera ..in the moment you connect it to the computer ..you will be able to find all the pictures on the memory card ..in the computer folder..under removable storage device ..or in the drive with the camera name or called memory card ..You can just copy paste them from there ..or ..use the windows tasks for downloading pictures..directly ...usually when you connect it..the auto-play mode will kick in and ask you for a action ..the minute it will detect the external memory ..
In case you do not have a driver for it ...you have to get to the support site and download the suitable software..and will work ..If they have non ..it means the camera works with windows without one cause it is already built in windows..and the procedure is the same ..
In sort ..if you have a disk that came with the camera ..insert it and run the installation ..than connect the camera and either use its software to download or make another action ...or just open my computer folder and in there you will find the storage from the camera ..one way or another..depending on how the windows identify it ..
Just give it a try ..and let me know what you have done ....how it is behaving ..and what exactly you need to do ..(internal memory or memory card ...driver disk or no disk ...please let me know all the facts if you do not manage ..)

Application popup: svchost.exe - Application Error : The instruction at "0x745f2780" referenced memory at "0x00000070". The memory could not be "read". Help me to rectify this...


this is a common error if you try to install a new memory card or if you are infected by a virus. if you tried to install/upgraded a new memory card. these are the thing you need to consider - memory card is not properly installed to the memory slot - memory card is not compatible to the system - if you added a new memory card it means that there is a conflict between the old and new memory card
if you did not install/upgraded a new memory card. these are the things you need to consider - you are infected by a worm/virus. try updating your system by installing system updates. install antivirus software - you might install a software that is having an issue with the memory installed in your system. - Operating system is corrupted need to reinstall the OS. - hardware failure try to check first the memory card then hard disk. or just contact local technician.

Computer is very slow.


McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system scan....you could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

BIOS update


1. Check your PC or motherboard manufacture for BIOS upgrade and upgrade BIOS firmware.
2. Try to start your PC in a safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts. Then select a safe mode with or without network support.
3. If your computer starts in the safe mode, check if your hard drive is not full or close to full. If it is close to full you need to remove some data from your disk. Try to remove temporary files and clear your Recycle Bin. Restart your computer.
4. You might run low on your memory. If your PC doesn't have enough physical memory, windows is creating virtual memory by using space from your hard drive.
5. If neither solution works, try to run a "CHKDSK C: /R" from recovery console.

Good luck!!!
