I have a acer M5100. Just added new card and now the HDMI port no longer functions. How do I enable it again or do I need to down load teh driver again and where can I get that?

This is almost certainly a driver issue. I know that a lot of ATI cards when installed have problems with HDMI ports. Updating your drivers and installing the Realtek High Definition Codecs (found here) will generally fix the issue.

If that doesn't work, let me know and I will get back to you. If you need more help, be sure to tell me what graphics card you are using and if the HDMI port in question is on that card.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Can i down load the webupdater for free? my garmin needs to ''get a new brain'' but i havnt got any of the connection leeds or the cd with the wed updater. what are my options?

Basically, you have no options unless you purchase or borrow accessories.

You're going to need the connection leads to make any software or firmware updates as there's no other way to get them from a host pc to your satnav.

I suggest that you visit the Garmin website to see what leads you need (and to download any software) and then check out the likes of eBay or Amazon as the leads are often cheaper elsewhere.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

How do you update the firmware of Fuji S7000?

What you do is have an ac mains adapter or a fully charged battery, a formatted card in your camera ( there should be a setting in your cameras menu for formatting) and the usb lead connected to your camera and pc. This should all be in your owners manual if you have one ( if not you can download one from a fuji website).
Check for a firmware update on a fuji website ( I had a look on a few and didn't find one) and down load it to your computer.
To check your current version hold the display back button down and turn the camera on. It should display the current version and ask if you want to up grade. If you don't ,or can't, turn off your camera.
Basically you down load the up date, then up load to your camera using the usb lead following any instructions along the way (get the manual for instructions. It will be easier). Mains lead is preferable as a battery could die halfway through and then you will be in trouble.
Hope this helps

I want to update my Nuvi200w,I have the data cable but I need to know what to do next. Please help.

First of all find current firmware.
To view the current firmware version, complete the following steps:
  1. Turn on the GPS.
  2. Switch to the tool kit page by touching the tool symbol on the buttom row.
  3. Touch "Settings".
  4. Touch "System".
  5. Touch "About"
  6. The system will display the firmware version at the top("SoftwareVersion"), the unit ID on the second line, followed byvarious copyright information.
  7. Touch "Back" to return to the previous page.
For online updating you must have Webupdater

Afterinstalling WebUpdater once from the Garmin website, perform all futuresoftware updates from your computer. Simply connect your compatibleGarmin device to your computer, then run WebUpdater from your computer's"Start Menu" by selecting "Start", "Programs","Garmin", and finally"WebUpdater".

Attention! It were cases that unit software was newerthan on Garmin site and it were losings of local language support afteronline updates. You must deside before do you need these changes offirmware or it's not so important.
