    Did you try to run defrag in Safe Mode?






    To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" . Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

    When it get into safe mode , run the defragmenter.

Sounds like you have either a virus or malware affecting your PC - first run scandisk to make sure there are no physical problems with the disk - then download an anti-malware package like spybot S&D - this is free and you may be surprised what it finds on your system!
once this is done try defragging again -alternatively - convert your HD to NTFS and this will not only speed it up but reduce the need to defrag dramatically

hope this helps 8)

Meh. Run a registry cleaning program (or the free Anvir process monitor to find out what's eating memory) and see if it doesn't clear up; though I'm inclined to say you should install 2 to 4GB (even after-market stuff since it's DDR that only has to run 200MHz, (to feed one 800MHz bus)) and see if the thing's new performance level improves your life enough to cover the cost. Easy victory either way.

Scanner


Are you getting a NO SCAN OPTION

If you are getting this message when you are trying to scan from the All-In-One.
And If the software is successfully installed in your computer, then you should have a icon in your desktop as HP Solution /HP Director (if not got to Start> All Programs>
HP> HP Solution Center)/HP Director Then try scanning from there, if you are able to scan from there then try the steps bellow.
Open solution center> Settings> Scan settings> Scan to setup> Then in this window click on Restore defaults> Then apply or ok and close all the windows and try to scan from the
All-In-One printer.
If it still does not work then try the bellow steps:
Go to:
My computer>C:windows>system32
Copy hpzipm12
minimize this window
Right click on Start button on the computer>Explore>Programs>Startup>edit>paste
minimize this window.
Go back to My computer>C:>windows>system32
Copy hpzinw12
minimize this window

Right click on Start button on the computer>Explore>Programs>Startup>edit>paste
Now you will see two new files in Startup
Now go to My Computer>C:Program Files>HP>Digital Imaging>bin>
Copy hpqtra08
close this window
Right click on Start button on the computer>Explore>Programs>Startup>edit>paste
Restart the computer
Open Hp Solution Center> Settings>Scan settings and preferences> Scan to button>
check destination list> if available applications are not in the destination list then add them in the front panel destination
Tried to scan.

If the software is not installed then you will have to install the printer driver and software sucessfully first.

Good Luck

HP Digtal Media Enterament Center Z558 (One GB Of Memory Only)


What Asus sometimes do with their motherboards is say it can support upto a certain amount of memory, but you have to use different speeds, eg you cannot use all at PC3200, why this is I don't know. If you are able also try setting the bus speed to something like 333MHZ then installing memory(refer to asus manual) But remember you void the warranty if not fitting recommended spec of memory, i would e mail ASUS because your kit is not cheap to replace.
