If you have a wireless router with a wireless network then -

Configure the IP address your wireless printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but at a higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the your printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

    You are talking to someone that is just starting to use this computer and I don't know how to do these things.

    Setting up a wireless printer is not a job for a novice. I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

SOURCE: upgrade vista home premium

As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....

SOURCE: i want to reboot my

Reboot? You mean restart? Click Start, click the arrow beside the Lock button and choose Restart. It's the same.

If you mean System Recovery (wiping out everything but the OS and making the PC new), then there must be a software like Recovery Manager. Search Start Menu.

As it is a Dell, you must have a recovery partition on the drive. It will be just as new.

Or use the set of CDs that you created when it was new, or one which you got with the PC. If you didn't get and you didn't even make it, ask Dell to send a set for your model.

If nothing works, then use a Vista installation disk that you can buy in a retail store. Note that you won't get the pre-installed software that you got from Dell when you removed the PC from the box.

SOURCE: reset my toshiba p300 laptop, to factory settings

The first thing you have to do is reset your windows password , There is a way to reset windows password without erasing anything.
Follow the instructions:
1.Free download the iso file : http://www.resetwindowspassword.com
2.Burn it to a disk to create the boot disk, that simple.
3.Configure your pc or laptop to boot in the cd drive,
4.Insert the CD, reboot from CD drive, and then just follow the process of instruction. A few steps later, admin password would be cleared
Took about 5 minutes for the whole process.

SOURCE: I recently formatted my Acer Aspire 4732Z laptop

You should have used eRecovery preinstalled on your computer,

if you formatted this unit properly there should be no need for another install of vista,

opps what did you format this unit with???

XP or Vista or windows 7

you only need to reinstall another operating system when you up grade your system,sometimes not even then,
as for the product key on the bottom relates to the install on your machine.
The new vista will come with a different product key,

If you format the drive to install the new vista then the key on the bottom will not work.unless you have the new product key,you could contact Microsoft and ask them to help with the product key,they will want the proof of purchase tho,contact them over the phone ,

Hope this helps,Cheers MISTERDJ

Canon PIXMA MP495 InkJet Printer - Offline issues


For Vista wireless setup: Open your Control Panel. Choose Printers. In the Printers box it lists your printers. Hover over the wireless printer icon, right click, choose Run as Administrator, then choose Use Printer online. This should change the status of the printer to Ready (from Offline). Be sure you've chosen this printer as your default printer. Might have to do this on a regular basis.

Where can I install the PIXMA MP495 CD-Rom as my laptop does not support CD-ROM's?


You can download everything off of the CD from Cannon's website. Click here to go to their website, go about halfway down the page until you find a button labeled "Drivers & Software" click on that and it will ask you what operating system you have. Just select which operating system you have from the menu. Once you select what operating system you have, click "Drivers" and hit download next to the first option.

The "Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2" disk that it is prompting you for came with your computer itself, not the printer. It's most likely labelled "Setup" or "restore" disk - just put it in the drive when prompted and you should be all set!
