    Is the MS Fax software still installed?

  • Thomas F. Schneider May 11, 2010

    Do you have the fax driver and modem installed?
    Has it worked in the past and this is a new problem?
    Is the modem working on the telephone line?

If you have windows xp you can do it from comtrol pannel in add/remove programs on left side it says add or remove windows components. It can be installed from there. If you have a different windows you may have to use the original installation disk and when it comes up press repair installation it will reinstall what you are looking for.

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

Tip

Run Commands


Do you use the Run feature in Windows?

Many computer users, don't even know that, there exist hundreds of commands, which can enhance your experience using computers..... and they are even useful to impress others with your knowledge in computers.

Nearly all of the Run Commands Correspond to a particular Control Panel Item or any utility or tool or task that can be accessed through Windows.

There are, however, tools and utilities that I bet you never knew you had that can be accessed through the Run feature.

The main reason most people don't use the Run feature is because they don't know the Commands.

Reinstalled win xp sound doesn't work also inatalled microsoft uaa driver still doesn't work....


Did you reinstall your manufacturers audio driver? If you are not sure open Control Panel and select Sounds and Audio Devices if you can not adjust the volume you need to install your audio drivers.

If you have the original sound card that came with your pc just go to the manufacturers website and select Drivers and Support.

I AM ON THE WINDOWS XP AFTER INSTALLING THE DRIVER THE TEST PAGE IS PRINTED BY THE PRINTER BUT ON GIVING COMMAND FOR OTHER PRINTING THE PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT


Got to: start>settings(classic view)>control panel>printers and faxes.
An icon for your printer should be there. Right click the printer icon and select "use as default". While in control panel, you can run the troubleshooter. Sometimes it works. Sometimes the software doesn't install correctly. Uninstall the software from the add/remove software in control panel, then re-install the printer software.

Lost my right as administrator


You have done big mistake that's why you are getting problem.

1)Regarding installation of win XP over windows vista.
You have to install first lower version and then higher version i.e. you should install first win xp and then windows vista. But vice-versa you can't do it.
So my suggestion is that format your c drive then install win XP
after installation win XP install win vista.

2) which operation system do you want to open .
You can remove it using windows tweak utility software wich is freely available on most of the website. Also you can manually edit it.
For manually do this.( i m not sure about windows vista it is available or not)
right click on my computer->click on Advanced Tab->setup and recovery framework click on settings->click on Edit button
You will see the boot.ini file. You can remove the windows XP line from that file.
