Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try:

  • check, remove, clean or replace the memory. A pencil eraser would serve the purpose to clean the little gold contacts;
  • scan for possible virus and/or malicious files running in the background;
  • determine what program is not responding. Check its dependencies and/or if it is a legitimate program;
  • if it is a third party application, temporarily uninstall (pls make sure that you have the installer especially if it is an important application);
  • clean up your Startup in System Configuration Utility (msconfig);
  • do a Disk Cleanup;
  • uninstall unnecessary programs;
  • check how much CPU and memory is being used on an empty desktop and/or no applications visible running;
  • verify that you have sufficient hardware requirements for the programs/applications that you are running;
  • defrag the hard disk.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Hi
The problem is most likely.. 
A bad driver in windows
A faulty printer 
A faulty USB cable
A broken usb connector on your laptop that has a short.

but the most likely is a faulty driver. 
Try downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer's website.

Are you sure you are putting it in right with mine I had a lot of trouble but suddenly had a breakthrough go to the computer that the access point is connected to and find your internet settings file an example talktalk settings you should have it in a file like that it is NOT your IP address which is where I kept going wrong if you're still having trouble try these two links.

Remove emails from mail talktalk net they will not delete


go into your mail setting under outlook or whatever default program you are using and go under tools, rules and alerts and create a rule for any email that contains talktalk in the message or body of the message and block them from being downloaded to your server.

Webmail.talktalk.net does not accept mypass word. Have used it for years,acer laptop


If you normally use POP3 to access your TalkTalk e-mail and haven't used Webmail for a while you may find that you can no longer log in. I have seen just a few isolated cases of this.
I'm not sure why but to fix it log into www.talktalk.net and access the Broadband Dashboard which is located on the left hand side under Broadband / Manage Broadband Features. Choose
  • Now sign in again, SIGH!, using your telephone-number@talktalk.net and your broadband password. If you have forgotten your password then just call 08700 875562 from your TalkTalk landline and follow the instructions.
  • Select the e-mail tab and enter a new password (or even the same password) against the e-mail address you are having problems with and then press UPDATE.
  • Now you can go back to webmail.talktalk.net and you should be able to sign in using the e-mail address and password. If its your first time on the new e-mail platform then you will be asked to fill in some extra details such as your name, gender and date of birth and press submit them.
Webmail should now be working again.
