Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

1 Answer

Missing files and photos, settings ect

My daughter seems to have reset something on the laptop over the weekend, i can't find files or photos. Software is there but everything needs to be reinstalled. Was going to try to do a system restore to see if this could help but it says that this is not possible.
It looks to me as if the laptop may have some settings restored to the initial day it was turned on, but having some software added over the months.

Hi I've just bought my daughter the app star 7 tablet off eBay but me or the ex owner doesnt no the password that's stopping me from getting on the settings I've tryed to reset it ect but nothing's working...


Use the ebay buyer's protect plan, when it was posted I bet there was nothing stated about the missing password. If there is no plan contact them anyway they are very good and do not rate until the problem is resolved.

Why will my canon pixma mp250 not reset a refilled color cartridge


i dont think you where trying the right solutions. the mp250 catridge 511 can not be reset as far as i know. what you can do to get it to print is to long press the reset button. this disables the ink level check function and you can work. the procedure you stated is usually for resetting the ink absorber, not catridges.

Good Luck!

When I "click", it takes forever to actually take the picture


You must press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus and then you can press it the rest of the way for an almost instant picture.

Win xp various add remove programs missing remove


Hello, you would not want to remove something from the registry editor to uninstall something, One thing you can do it to locate the folder the program is installed, this will commonly be the C drive and then the Program Files folder, inside there you should see the folder name that matches with the program your looking for, inside you may find an uninstall file there. If not you can delete the folder but it may cause startup issues.

Hi,

While in the On Screen Display Menu the Icon second from the bottom contains settings for OSD timeout, you want to get to this function and set it to 20 seconds.

This is a link to the online PDF manual, go to page 18 for more detail on accessing and using this setting.

On page 19 is the information on resetting the factory reset functions. Do this, if you are struggling with the use of these buttons, read the manual for assistance. The manual is something you can read and reread and may help you immensly in getting to these controls.

On the last page of this online manual is the contact information for Hanspree and they have a toll free numberr. Wait until the weekend is over before calling. If anyone is working the phones on a holiday weekend they are low on the seniority list. You may or may not get good service on weekends.


Regards,
Worldvet

I cann't open my last pictures


Solution: From the top menu bar, select Tools, Check for missing pictures. Click Start and follow the on-screen prompts. This utility will search your hard drive for the missing photos. My photos were found in C:\Document&Settings\username\Local Settings\temp folder. If this utility found your missing photos, following the prompts to relink the photos. You just need to redirect the restore to the path were the photos were located.
