First of all Hello

Is it win XP pro of office pro :) anyways i think you meant office professional :)

if its xp pro
Do you have a Cd or an image containing xp pro mounted? If so that is why you are getting this problem. Make sure remove any CD's from the drive.

if its office pro and you have multiple accounts on your computer do this :)
It might be that you are using office as a user of your PC and NOT as administrator in which case it means you have to go back to your administrator profile and make a FULL INSTALL (all features installed on my computer) of OFFICE professional and the problem goes.

I hope that this fixya helped you :)

My video is not working.. person cant see me


Do you mean webcam
if so which communucation app /skype/yahoo/google
Click start control panel view devices and printers you should see your web cam from there
if you are have trouble with your web cam.
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
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 andQuicktimesoftware 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).

I cannot download adobe flashplayer. Whenever I go to certain sites, I keep getting told that I need to disable Java or I have an older version of Adobe. I keep trying to download FP, but it keeps failing....


I had this problem before..you need to clean the registry files stored in your computers harddrive. The problem you are having now is that the flashplayer will not complete the download because the old flashplayer is priority even though you have upgraded your browser. I spent a few days when this happened to me. Try this free registry cleaner from CNET, click on the link and download it. After you download it, install it and run the program and it will clean all of your old files out of the harddrive. It will find and delete the old versions of Adobe. After you do that, resart the computer and redownload Adobe flash player.

Internet Explorer 7 does not connect


Try doing an update from the Microsoft website.
If you have, do you have an antivirus or firewall running? Turn off one at a time until you can see your browser.
I would recommend Firefox as well. Just for added security.

Cant install bluetooth drivers on my hp compaq nx 7400 notebook


Which operating system do you have on your computer? Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Windows XP

A detailed troubleshooting page for Bluetooth devices on Windows XP can be found here.


Windows Vista

If you have Windows Vista or that doesn't solve your problem. You can try typing in the name of your Bluetooth device you're trying to connect followed by drivers into google

For example, if I were trying to connect a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 to my computer, I would type the following into Google: Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Drivers

Good luck!

Reinstall windows to solve this problem... Because if your USB's are not installed then you will not ever able to install any new usb hardware with your Pc!

also change the windows version i:e if you are using windows Xp home edition then try to install Windows Xp professional editon instead.

I am sure that this will solve your problem!

Unable to work with Internet Explorer... :-(


It sounds as though the IE7 application may be corrupted. Try removing IE7.

To Remove IE7: Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Select Internet Explorer 7 > Select Remove. IE is a core component of XP. Hence, your machine will revert to IE6. Reboot pc. If you like IE7, visit Microsoft and download a fresh copy.

Good luck.
