It depends on a few factors, namely the specifications of your particular system. The D530 came in 3 different configurations and a wide range of processors. You might not have a powerful enough CPU, insufficient RAM, or not a powerful enough video card.

Did AutoCAD previously start up OK? Is this a properly licensed copy?

We currently have benkin wireless in th home but for some reason can't get it to hook up on two other computers in the house. What should we do


Before you do the steps below make sure your Networking Interface Card (NIC) is working. You can find out this by typing 127.0.0.1 in command prompt (to bring command prompt type cmd in the RUN command)

Step 01: type ncpa.cpl on the Run command
Step 02: Right click the network connection and navigate to the properties.
Step 03: Under Networking Tab select the Internet Protocol IP v 4 click property button right underneath it.
Step 04: Under General make sure to click the Obtain IP automatically and Obtain DNS automatically. This allows your belkin wireless router to assign IP address dynamically.
Step 05: Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1 (usually this address is your default gateway if not 0.1 or 2.1 on the address) and access the belkin router.
LAN settings: IP address should be your default gateway address and subnet mask will assign automatically if not type 255.255.255.0 on the subnet mask section.
Make sure DHCP (Dynamic Host Config Protocol) is on and assign IP pool from next address to starting address and ending usually 254 or 100)
Start 192.168.2.2 End 192.168.2.100

Lease Make sure DNS are assign automatically.
ignore above steps if they are already assigned.
once you finished reboot your computer (you dont have to do this)
Now open browser enjoy.
If you still dont get internet you must check your cabling with ur router to pc. or different port

How to unlock password protected auto cad files.


it appears that autodesk2_bing.gif did infact pull the command to unlock drawings from the newer apps. but the way to get around it is to find a file of the same name, only with a .dwk or .dwl extension, and then delete it. then when you open the drawing, it will run the recover command and fix it up for you to view and edit again

Desktop start up problem


I would suggest that you get a copy of Ultimate boot cd or Hirens cd and run that if you can boot from cd. Then use the disk repair tools to help diagnose the problem. If you have anymore information that would help too.

I had a cad drawing and I was messing around with it and lost it tried recover and can't recover it. I had someone resend it to me and every time I get it it changes to a file I can't open it is white page...


Most CAD programs such as AutoCad have a history of recently opened files. In AutoCad go to TOOLS/ OPTIONS/ FILES/ Automatic Save location. There you should find a file with the same name but a different file extension such as .BAK (AutoCad back-up) You can set AutoCad to automatically save to any time period, such as every 15 minutes.

Make a copy of this .BAK file so you keep that unchanged, Then change the file extension of the copied .BAK file to .DWG. Then you should be able to open this file. A file with an extension containing the $ symbol needs to be recovered using the programs recovery tool, in FILE/ DRAWING UTILITES/ RECOVER

If you're using a different CAD program look for this backup file wherever the programs Autosave files are set to be stored.

One other possiblity is the file extesnsion is set by your computer to open with another program for some reason. Right click and hit "open with"

Let me know if this helps

How do i create my own computer software?


If you want to write Windows software, you'll need to pick up something like Microsoft Visual Studio 2000/2005/2008. If you're a student, many colleges offer this at a huge discount.  If you want to write software for mac, you'll need to get a copy of XCode from your Mac install disk 1.  If you want to write software for Linux, it's already included.  -------- In any of the above cases, you'll need to learn a programming language like c++, Java or Python. Beginner frequently start with C++, as do many college computer science curriculums. Either way, get a book on your programming language from your local library.

Try to install D-LINK DWL G630, get error 1607, windows xp


Error 1607 appears while trying to install the product. The installer is unable to invoke "InstallShield", a third-party utility used to perform the installation.
Step 1
  1. Select Start, Run, and type REGEDT32. Click OK.
  2. Browse to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\InstallShield
  3. Check the permissions on this key:
    Windows XP: right click and select "Permissions"
    Windows 2000/NT: navigate to the "Security" menu and then select "Permissions"
  4. If not already assigned, assign "Full Control" to the following groups:
    a. Administrators
    b. SYSTEM
  5. Reboot the computer
  6. Try the installation again
Step 2
If step 1 did not correct the problem, please see this article on the InstallShield web site.


HERE is a link to the Microsoft Knowledge database that may be of help as well. (ALthough it mentions its for games, it should work with any software)
