Hp dx2200 computer won't power off


If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.

Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.

Unable to access sound. I do not know what to do. It is a rental so I do not intend to buy but I would suggest to them. Thanks


Tell them to download, AND install, the proper Audio Driver, from the HP Support website.

Look at the back of the computer tower, or up on the side/top, for the white Service Tag.
Look for the Product Number. (To the right of P/N)

Go to HP Support, enter the Product Number. Then go to Drivers and Downloads on that computer's main page.

Look at the Audio driver/s.

1) IF more than one audio driver is listed on the driver download page, they need to go to Device Manager, and see what audio device manufacturer is listed.

Then match the audio device name to the audio driver name.

(Examples; RealTek, Creative, Intel, Conexant, and so on)

[ Device Manager:

WinXP:
Left-click on Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab >
Left-click on Device Manager.

Win Vista and Win7:
Left-click on the Windows start button > Right-click on Computer > Left-click on Properties > Left-click on the Hardware tab > Left-click on Device Manager.

Click on the + sign to the left of Sound, video and game controllers.
In the list; do you see Realtek, or Creative, or Conexant, or Intel, listed?
Match the name up to the audio driver listed in HP Support ]

2) They also need to match the Operating System.

If the computer has Windows XP on it, (Any version, Home or Pro),
they need to download, AND install the audio driver for WinXP.

Same for Vista, and Win7.

One more variable to look at with the Operating System.
See what bit version it is.
Is it 32-bit, or 64-bit?

Need THE appropriate audio driver.

However, look close. Some drivers will work with both a 32-bit O/S, and a 64-bit O/S.
(O/S = Operating System )

A lot of times the file name does not list what Operating System, and bit version, it is for.

If you click on Download, a small window will come up on the right.
In the heading is a basic description of the file.

XPx86 means it's for a Windows XP operating system, that is 32-bit.
XPx64 means it is for a Windows XP operating system, that is 64-bit.

Vista x86? Vista 32-bit
Vista x64? Vista 64-bit

Same with Win7.

An example;

1) I have looked in Device Manager, and see the name Conexant listed in the list under Sound, video, and game controllers.

I know now that I am looking first of all, for an audio driver that has the name Conexant, in it.

2) I know that the computer has the Windows Vista operating system.

If I Left-click on the Windows start button, Right-click on Computer, then Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list, the System Properties window will state what bit the O/S is.

If it is a 64-bit O/S this will be stated.

If it is a 32-bit O/S this may not be stated. It is assumed unless 64-bit is stated, the O/S is a 32-bit operating system.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/32-bit_application

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit

64-bit is not stated. (x86 is 32-bit)
I now know the operating system is 32-bit.

I look through the audio files listed for a Conexant audio driver, that is for Windows Vista, and 32-bit. (x86)

Also; if there are audio drivers that match, but one has a newer date, use the one with the newer date.

If it is a rental computer, the rental company is the Administrator, and is the only one who can download, AND install, the audio driver.

IF, downloading AND installing the audio driver does NOT repair the audio problem, then the Integrated Audio is bad.

Another term used for Integrated Audio is OnBoard Audio.
ON the motherBOARD.
The audio chipset is soldered TO the motherboard.

This means the audio chipset soldered to the motherboard is bad.
Repair?
Install a sound card. (PCI version)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
To have me clarify/explain anything I have stated above, please post in a Comment.

[ Also include the computer manufacturer name, { Compaq? I do not want to assume }, and the Model Number. (Product Number for Compaq and HP )

It's in the white Service Tag on the back, or upper side, of a desktop computer tower.
Bottom of a laptop.
P/N = Product Number ]

I want to take crawler off my computer


No problem. Open your browser and go the MSN.com (or whatever homepage you want to have) and we'll set that as your home page.

For Internet Explorer, the Tools menu may be hidden. Press "Alt-T" to get the menu if you can't click on it, then select Options. The first option on the Main tab is "Home Page" and under that is a button that says "use current" Press this button, then press "OK" and your home page will now be the MSN.com page that you opened.

For FireFox, you select Tools->Options, and pick the "Main" button at the top-left. The first option is "When FireFox Starts" and you want this to say "Show my home page" Underneath that, there's a button that says "use current" Press that button, and the homepage is set to the MSN.com page that you have currently open.


If this helps, please hit the "thumbs-up" for me!

Somebody installed windows live on my computer i now have msn as my desk top i want to go back to google classic


Hi. I am assuming you are talking about the page that Internet Explorer goes to when you first open it. If that is the case, try this:

Windows Vista (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. Click the arrow to the right of the Home button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4aa01e82-2732-4ac7-b246-a06c904f2c2c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, and then click Add or Change home page.
In the Add or Change Home Page dialog box, do one of the following:
• To make the current webpage your only home page, click Use this webpage as your only home page.
• 4. To start a home page tab set or to add the current webpage to your set of home page tabs, click Add this webpage to your home page tabs.
• To replace your existing home page or home page tab set with the webpages you currently have open, click Use the current tab set as your home page. This option will only be available if you have more than one tab open in Internet Explorer.
5. Click Yes to save your changes.

Windows XP (all versions)

1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Programs or All Programs, and clicking Internet Explorer.
2. Navigate to the webpage you would like to set as the home page.
3. On the pull-down menus at the top of the window, click the Tools menu and choose Internet Options (if the Tools is not showing at the top of the page, you can access it using the Tools pull-down menu located on the right side of the window).
4. To make the current webpage your home page, click the “Use Current” button.
5. Click OK to save your changes.

Hope this helps!
