    Reset does not fix it. The message was generated after I had hooked up to my computer and asked for the Garmin down load.

  • Dickaa Nov 18, 2008

    I tried to update a location and then tried to use Garmin again but the message comes back when I turn the unit on

Hello Dickaa,

Have you actually tired to follow the on screen instructions and upgrade it? Whet it ask to continue, but "this will clear all user data"select YES, and procede with the update.

NOTE. If you dont want to lose your information, make a backup of the information on your computer.

Good luck,
Dahaka

Dickaa,

When you pushed the reset, was it turn on? The reset only works if power is active to the Memory.

If the unit WAS on or if you try it this way and it fails, then do the following..

Turn the unit on ..... push settings, then system and then restore. follow the prompts on the screen and this should reset the unit to factory defaults.

Hope you find this usefull
Dave

    PLEASE FORWARD THIS WARNING AMONG FRIENDS, FAMILY AND CONTACTS!


    You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message
    with an attachment entitled 'POSTCARD,' regardless of who sent it to
    you. It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the
    whole hard disc C of your computer. This virus will be received from
    someone who has your e-mail address in his/her contact list. This is
    the reason why you need to send this e-mail to all your contacts. It is
    better to receive this message 25 times than to receive the virus and
    open it.


    If you receive a mail called' POSTCARD,' even though sent to you by a
    friend, do not open it! Shut down your computer immediately.


    This is the worst virus announced by CNN. It has been classified by
    Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever. This virus was discovered
    by McAfee yesterday, and there is no repair yet for this kind of virus.
    This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the
    vital information is kept.

Also, when you click "NO" what happens or prevents you from clicking no?

What method did you use to upgrade? I'm going to take a wild guess: web updater.

This has been the source of many similar problems and so we'll say it again: DO NOT USE WEB UPDATER FOR FIRMWARE UPGRADES.

But now that the first update has partially failed, my advice would be to obtain the latest version of web updater, which supposedly can deal with failed updates, and try again.

    It seems that to solve the problem with ""New software found. The software is older than your current software. Would you like to continue installing? This will clear all user data" message.
    It looks that in some of the past upgrades, u try to perform upgrade using SD card instead of the Nuvi. So u had a situation that on SD card u found GUPDATE.GCD with older creation date than on Nuvi. After u delete GUPDATE.GCD from SD (\Garmin folder) message will be disappeared.
    try this instructions.

There are no end of problems with HP printer driver software. I've had them too. The most likely success will come from completely UNINSTALLING the present HP printer software (ALL OF IT) and reinstalling the MOST CURRENT PRINTER DRIVER for your computer operating system. You download that driver from hp.com by inserting your model number an following the screen instructions. There is a companion PRINTER DOCTOR tool from HP that you should also download just in case you continue to have a problem after you install the new driver. I can't stress to much how important it is to completely remove all traces of the HP software from your computer first before you reinstall using the latest driver. Failure to do so will cause you continued problems.

Also, if you want to minimize other software issues, after you've downloaded the most recent driver, REMOVE your Antivirus Program if you are using one. I found that there were conflicts caused by Kaspersky AV firewall settings that HP software did not over come. I reinstalled Kaspersky AV after the HP software install and everything worked fine then. The necessity of this step seems to be computer-dependent. I have 3 pcs, all running Win10 Home and only ONE of them required this extreme step in order to get the software to function completely ok.

Nokia c3 phone is continuously switching on and off on its own


Hi,

If your phone freezes, hangs up unexpectedly, vibrates continuously ,touch screen wont respond or in other similar ways doesn't perform as it should, this can often be solved by performing a software update. Software may perform incorrectly for many reasons without there being a fault in the phone. Some problems may be fixed by re-updating your current software, while others may require installing a new software version.


To keep your phone performing at its best, it's a good idea to perform a software update regularly. You might not always notice what an update has done, but it can prevent future problems.


To update or reinstall the software please go to nearest authorized service centre of your mobile make and they will update or reinstall the software as required.


Note: Reinstalling the software will delete all the content in your phone like contacts, calendar entry etc.

Thank You
