I am pretty sure in order to do the System Restore on the HP, you need to boot the Computer with the Restore CD in. It should boot from the CD and start the recovery process.

Icons changed to word icons


Sad day, you've somehow got all of your files associated with word and will only open in word. You should be able to go to the start menu and open up programs that way. All the shortcuts on your desktop are not going to do anything for you.

Where on the monitor is the plug for the camera.


If its webcam plug it in to the usb port if the monitor has one if not into one of the computers usb ports.

Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your webcam from there
if you are have trouble with your webcam
Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down image devices you could see a yellow question mark ?
right click to reinstall drivers or update driver xp.
Click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll to image devices expand right click to update driver in W7
http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html
on the home page you should see a search tab just type in what you are looking for
IE: webcam name webcam driver you might have to try a few times to get it right
software if you dont have the driver you will need to download one here rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
http://download.cnet.com/slimdrivers-free/3000-18513_4-75279940.html
Windows XP/Vista/7/8
It might take some time being a freeware driver solution
note: it will find all of your outdated drivers
this is a free driver solutions
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver
you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you
want to restart or make a system restore point click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.
But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.
Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer
If you still have no webcam installed
Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.
Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

Desktop computer monitor goes black but works on other computers


It sounds like the resolution is set wrong. Go to the minimum and see if that solves the problem. If so keep working up.

Monitor freezes up


Hello,

If your monitor is freezing up, this could be a virus problem or the hard disc on the personal computer is over loaded, meaning the hard disc is nearly full or almost full, you will need to scan your system to ensure the system is virus free, if that did not solve the problem, ensure delete unuseful program or data from the hard disc and also delete unusable icon on the screen of your monitor. this will help solve the problem.

Take care.

I have a vewsonic Q9 Model number VS11201. I had to reload all the software due to a virus but did not do a total reinstall. While I was fighting the virus the monitor very briefly flickered lost color...


For some reason HP does not offer the video drivers for downloading from their site. But here is the download from Intel, the maker of the video chip set used on the motherboard. Download and run the driver installation program. This will make sure the video drivers are correctly installed. If, after all that, you still have the same funny display, then it might be that the monitor does have a problem. However, since you said you reloaded your system and were having virus problems, I would try the drivers first.

Here is a link to a page at HP explaining how you might be able to make a set of recovery CDs for your computer if it didn't come with any (most computers don't). You might try this option if it will work on your computer and you didn't completely erase everything when you reloaded your software before. Sometimes Windows just gets so messed up that the only way to fix it is to completely restore your computer to its original factory setup. This erases anything you have added (programs or personal data like downloads, pictures from a camera, etc.) so you do it only as a last resort.

Some HP systems have an option at boot-up to enter a system recovery screen. When you turn your computer on, watch the screen for messages that go by telling how to get into setup or system recovery (usually by pressing one of the function keys like F10). Systems that have this recovery option may not allow you to make recovery discs.

I hope you find that reinstalling the video drivers is all you need. Please post followup comments if you still need anything and I'll try to help.
