You should list the updates in question so we have more info to work on. But there are plenty of cases where you can have a failed update. For example they might be listed for your system but you don't actually use the hardware/software they are listed for. Or the update may have already been applied through a service pack. Or most likely you need another update first before they will work. A final possibility is that you may have to update them one at a time. Some updates simply will not install unless they are the only one you are installing. And as an afterthought i have seen one or two that wouldn't install unless it was through automatic updates. But usually if one fails to install you have some sort of option to learn more information.

How to use accelerometer\motion sensor on nokia n95

nokia n95 has got an inbuilt motion sensor like the iphone the only thing is that the company didnt provide the software to utilise that hardware.However if u got a nokia n95 and dont have the software to use motion sensor most simple thing to do is ill suggest u to upgrade your phones firmware to v 30.0.015 because this version has got inbuilt software to use motion sensor in phone.for upgrading your phone u just need to got to,and download software update which is approx 23 mb file or u have a better and simpler option go to ur pc suite {latest version} there is a option for software update u just need to click that. Do's and Donts while updating ur phone- Do's- 1) do check that u have atleast 75% of battery 2) ensure that u have 5taken back up of ur phone via pc suite this will help u to save ur contacts,msgs etc Dont's- 1) never try to upgrade urself if u have a weak internet connection because it will take ages to complete 2) Do not disconnect ur phone while updating because if u do so then no software update will work ull have to flash ur phone and beleive me its gonna cost u few bucks. 3) before updating check that u have inverter for ur pc and if there is any kind of electricity faliure ur pc shouldnt shut down.
U can either turn on or off the motion sensor utility by going to menu-tools-settings-general-personalisation-display-rotate screen. though company has just provided with auto rotation feature there are many other features used with the help of motion sensor like motion sensor games as in the iphone. -Thank you

I click play, screen goes black

The first thing I would try is to update your video card drivers.
Then run windows update and make sure that all critical updates are applied.
Then I would download the update patches for the game and apply them to see if that had cured the problem.

Your PC has recommended specifications as required for the game.
All you need is to optimize your PC, to do so perform the the following tasks:
Stop unwanted background services
Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus

Am unable to print emails only prints footer details when i ask to see preview only prints date etc on bottom line

If you are using Microsoft Outlook, there is a problem with printing emails when you upgrade to Internet Explorer 8. You will have to update your system with the latest updates, especially Internet Explorer and MS Office / Outlook.
Go to Windows Update, select to upgrade to Microsoft Update, and install all the critical updates you will be presented with. As some updates need to be installed separately, you will have to come back to Microsoft Update as many times as it takes to install all the critical updates.

If however you are using a different e-mail program or system (like many online ones, Gmail for example) you will have to provide more details in order to be helped.

If you have made sure that all cables are correctly connected. Then I would try shutting down the computer and wait abou 5-10 seconds and then restart.

If that doesnt correct it, I would check to make sure that it is installed correctly in the Device Manager.

To do this, click Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. This will open Device Manager. Once there look for items with a yellow ! beside them. These are items that are not installed correctly.

If you see any yellow ! I would suggest trying Windows Update to check for drivers. To do this, open Internet Explorer then click Tools > Windows Update. Once it lloads you will have the option of Express or Custom. Choose Custom. Your machine will be scanned for updates. You will need to scan through the Critical, Software, Hardware updates on the left and make sure that all of them are selected and then choose Review/Install updates at the top of the screen. This will start the download and installation process of the updates. You will probably be prompted to restart after the updates finish.

I would first goto start then control panel then add remove programs. If you don't see add remove on the left there will say switch to classic view then a lot of icons will appear. Then click add remove programs find them and remove them (providing you have the installation disk or high speed internet access). Then restart your computer and reinstall the programs. Pay close attention to each window while you go through the install process. One of the windows will ask you if you want a desktop icon. Check that box and you should be good to go. After doing this goto hp updates and download the critical update: Follow these steps exactly to download the HP Director update from the HP Web Site. Some of the following steps might require you to navigate away from this Web page. Consider bookmarking or printing this page for reference. If you prefer to install the update without downloading anything, skip to the next method.
  1. Click here to go to the HP Software Download Page .
  2. In the Enter a product number text box, type your product model (for example, HP Officejet 7115), and then click Submit (c01425574.gif ) or press Enter . NOTE: If you are not sure what your product model is, look on the product itself. The model number is usually somewhere on the top or front of the product.
  3. Under Product search results , click your product model.
  4. Click Windows XP under Select your operating system .
  5. Under Update , click Critical update to resolve an issue with HP Director after installing Internet Explorer 7 . Figure 2: Example of critical update option on the HP Software Download page c01471218.gif NOTE: This update may or may not be available for your product. If it is not available, try the next method.
  6. Thoroughly review the information on the critical update page, and then follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the update. When the update finishes installing, HP Director functions normally. Here is the website
