Re: it wont start and please help

Can you give us some details, is it displaying any error messages, any lights on, any sounds (beeps, fans), something to start with.

My printer is 3-4 years old. It has been hanging up for the last six months (used about once a week) with a jam with the printer cartridge carrier. I can't seem to get it to fix itself. None of the...

try to see if your carriers are loss by touching and trying to move them up down side to side...just don't do it hard so you wont end up braking them XD

if they are loss it would be easier for you to just buy a new printer...they are pretty cheap now days...

if its not the carrier it would be easier to figure out if you post your printers model number and name...

but again printers are pretty would be a lot easier to get a new one.

Start up repair and recovery

Thank you for your response.
I finally did get it fixed yesterday with help from an Acer agent on the phone. I had to re-install the OS, and loose all my files, but none that I can't replace. The pop did sound electrical, but it hasn't done it since I've re-installed the OS. The computer is only around 8 months old, and I stild have a few months of the one year warranty left on it. Before it all happened I installed Windows Messenger Along with my Yahoo Messenger, and Was using a few registry cleaners, in which I may have accidentally deleted something in the registry. Anyhow, it is back to normal, and Im gonna be a little more careful with these registry cleaners, and as soon as I get the extra money, Im gonna get me an extra external drive.

Pc keeps loading and restarting again, it wont go past windows xp

I keep coming back to this, thinking about it, leaving and coming back to this. I have seen this before and the only thing that I could do to fix the issue was to do a Windows Repair using the original CD. The problem with this is it looks a little deciving and could be complicated. Put the CD in, accept the ULA and when it gives you the option to repair, hit R. Go through the prompts a little further. It will look like it is reinstalling Windows completely, but it is actually reloading just the system files that usually become curupt. When the system comes back up, it might look a little different, but all of your programs and files will still be there.
