I cannot find a way to scan from my computer (HP) to my printer (HP). There is no icon on my screen to get to the scan part of my printer.


Dear christian, I think you have not installed full software of your HP printer. So insert the CD provided with the HP printer in your CD rom. It will autoplay. Select the install and than easy install option. In this process full software will install in your PC. After that you can find every function of your printer in your PC. thanks...

How to do emachine recovery


emachine recovery is pretty much the same as on all pc's. Make sure your cd rom is set to auto play and the recovery process will start as soon as you insert the cd. If autoplay is not turned on, put the cd in, open my computer and scroll to the cd drive. You will see a file either called setup.exe or install.exe. Click on that file and it will bring up a screen giving you all available options.

Get a little cd flashing by the pointer when putting a game on.the game will not start.what does the flashing cd mean?


The drive is attempting to initiate the Autorun of the CD. Some CDs have an autoplay feature, some don't, some the autoplay doesn't work. So open my computer, see if the drive actually reads the CD. If it does, look for an autoplay or setup.exe

How do you download the game onto the computer?


You insert a disc. An Autoplay Screen comes up. Run the setup when prompted. Follow the on screen directions to install the program once you press install on the autorun menu.

Also , many products include inserts on how to install a program. These are usually referred to as quickstart directions. They are designed to give a no frills list of how to install the games.

The setup wizard on the CD will not automatically run when inserted in the CD-ROM drive, what do i do?


  1. click on start
  2. My computer
  3. right click on CD/DVD Drive
  4. Left click auto run

selecting My Computer, right-clicking the drive that contained the CD-ROM, and selecting Properties. click the AutoPlay tab and select the Select an action to perform option, then double-click the program to use to run the CD-ROM. This action launched the program on the CD-ROM. Note that simply highlighting the program you want to use and clicking OK or Apply doesn't work; you must double-click the program and force it to launch on the CD-ROM or DVD in the drive. The CD-ROM then ran automatically, using the program associated with it on the AutoPlay tab.
