I have lost all my maps on my garmin nuvi 255W-

Do a hard reset on your GPS. Download and install Garmin Express from Garmin. Plug your GPS into your computer. The software will identify your GPS and allow you to download new maps to it.

Hi my laptop wont go to windows , it just saying prepare boot to os . can anyone help please

Windows may not be starting due to a driver problem. In any case, see if you can get into the Windows Advanced Options Menu as follows...
1. have the ac adapter connected
2. power on the laptop and watch the screen
3. when the Acer logo is showing, press F8 repeatedly
4. Windows Advanced Options Menu should now start
5. once you are in the Menu, use the up and down arrow keys to select an option
You could try starting with ...
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Safe Mode
where you could do a System Restore to an earlier date when the system was working
If none of this works and you don't have any user data that needs to be saved, then do as follows.
All Acer netbooks have a factory install image on a hidden partition of the hard disk. Suggest you should re-install the original windows factory image. All user data on the C: drive will be cleared by Acer eRecovery which you would start up as follows....
1. have the netbook connected to its AC adapter which is plugged into AC power line
2. power on the netbook and watch the screen as it starts up
3. when the acer logo is showing, hold down the Alt key and press F10 repeatedly
4. until screen indicates Acer eRecovery is starting
5. once eRecovery is loaded, follow the directions given on the screen

My Lenovo laptop starts up and shows Microsoft Windows starting to load but a few seconds later the screen goes black. The computer is on but it shows a black screen.

Try running in Safe mode.
Start the computer and hit the F8 key many times till you get Windows Advanced Option menu - Choose safe mode with or with out networking.

Does your computer seem to be working now? (safe mode is a limited use mode)
Chances are that your computer is infected and preventing normal use..

Restoring the computer would be the easiest way to fully clean out all infections and needed software corruptions. A full restore DELETES all DATA from the hard drive - Make sure you have all your data backed up. You can back up your DATA in side safe mode.

The information given relates to CORRUPTIBLE software like a virus....
Other issues may factor in to this but, not believed to be so.

Thank you for contacting

Try to reinstall windows overwriting the previous installation so that all your data, files and programs will not be deleted. If you have your windows installation cd, insert it to the cd/dvd drive and start/restart your laptop. It then detects the installer and scans your computer. Just follow the on-screen instructions. But during setup, do not choose the "Repair Mode" instead choose "New Install". Now when attempting to install, then system will detect your previous windows installation so there highlight (using the arrow keys) choose "Repair Previous Installation". When you do this, all windows system files will be replaced but all programs and personal files will be in tact.

updates can be slow,and lead to more updates should goto windows update,let it search for important updates then install them.even if it takes a while,once you do that it should be fine.and configure updates to auto download but ask to install.

Configuring updates dont stop

I'll assume last known good configuration didn't work, if you press f8 and choose disable automatic restart on failure, you should see the blue screen of death with more info, when you reboot the next time,(you may have to hold in power button for 5 secs), press f8 and see if Repair my computer is listed on the Microsoft Startup menu, if not, insert a windows vista disk and restart,booting to the cd(should happen automatically, but look for a prompt to press a key) choose your language, then choose repair my computer, choose the windows installation, and you can try to use system restore to go back before the uodates were installed and updated, then disable automatic updating so it doesn't repeat.

When I switch on Acer Aspire 5315 get message "Configuring updates 3 of 3 0% complete" for a few second then pc shuts down restarts and goes back to the same configuring updates message just...

try starting the computer in safe mode. As the computer boots keep pressing F8 until you hear a beep. The computer will or should start in safe mode, once it has everything will look big, don't worry about that for now, click on start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date for when you know the computer was working without any problems. Once the computer has restored it will shut down and reboot. When/if asked what mode you want to boot/start your computer choose start windows normally. I hope this helps.

Cannot get router to work on PC hard cabled to router

no. We have two PC's and one lap top in the network and the two PC's have been on the system for the whole time. the laptop was new. Last night I worked with "smilemaker" and before all was said and done, I now have no internet service at my house.
When I try to load the software for the router, it says that it can't find the internet but eventually get to the screen when it ways that it is configuring the computer but never goes beyond that point. I have tried uninstalling the software, unplugging the router from power and the PC, then starting all over again and still have the same result.
