The files with extensions *.exe don´t run.

I have a PC Windows 2000, SP4,
When you try to open a file with extension (exe) the system answer with: "Unrecognized version and can not be read", "syntax error", "file error".
No one aplication of control panel could open, and the most serious problem is that the antivirus doesn´t run.

For one I would upgrade to Win XP at the very least, maybe even to windows 7.
Win2k has been retired for a while now and you will have inc4reasingly more problems with not being able to see things on the web as your 6.0 browser is outdated and retired as well. There are no IE browsers that will work with Win 2k and your will need to do a re-install of your OS because it sounds like you have a virus or a multiple infection of viruses

Why does my laptop restart atuomatic when i shut down it?

One bad lead or faulty connection point can cause a computer to shutdown continue restarting on a cycle or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

Hi rfanklin65,
Did you remember to save the audio file folder to the disk as well as the session data? If so, are the audio files on the same disk as the Pro Tools sessions?
Are you running a Windows or Mac system?
Thanks, Krisfaudio

How to install

To install Windows place the Windows disc in the cD drive and turn the pc on. If nothing happens try pressing F1 2 F8 or F12 as the pc is starting these may open the BIOS and allow you to change it to BOOT from CD.
Restart and allow Windows to install from CD automatically. this will also work for PUPPYLINUX if you are trying to install that instead o expensive Windows.

If you want to install a program, then simply open its CD and find the file SETUP.exe or AUTORUN.exe and double click on them this should start the install process.

Sound device driver i need it!

...looks like they found your problem a while back:

One way to 'do drivers' is to get a USB Flash drive and then download
from a local library's internet (or a friends internet accessable computer).

Then burn a CD ROM, and copy the file from your flash drive to the CD.

When your computer boots up, see if your version of Windows (or Linux
whatever you have) will at least read that file. If it can see it, then try
the installation/setup file (should be setup.exe)

I need to restore my i250 printer to factory settings after a "Waste Ink Tank full" message (parts are no longer made, so can't go via a repair service)

This is not very fun..

Goto this site and search service tool
when the search completes, you have to download parts 1-7 (scroll down the page to see the file links) (i haven't downloaded myself, so make sure you scan files for virus before opening)

This will give you the canon service tool you need to reset the printer. After download, follow these instructions:

1. Unzip the “i320-i255.rar/i320-i255.EXE” file.
(Automatically unzipped by double-click)
2. Open the “i320-i255.rar/i320-i255.EXE” folder created after unzipping.
3. Open the “GeneralTool.exe” file.
4. Select the connected USB PORT No. from “USB PORT” (A).
< How to print the shipment inspection pattern >
Select “TEST PATTERN 1” (B), and the shipment inspection pattern 1 will be printed.
< How to set the destination >
1. Select either of “1” or “2” from “SET DESTINATION” (C), and the destination will be set.
“PIXUS 350i”: Japan
“i355/i255”: Asia
“i350/i250”: Other than the above area
2. Confirm that the model name is indicated in the (E) area when clicking “DEVICE ID” (D).
Or, confirm the model name by performing the shipment pattern printing.
< EEPROM reset >
When printing the shipment pattern after the “EEPROM CLEAR” (F) check box is marked, the EEPROM
will be reset.

a little confusing, but it should work

I am trying to print from my Lexmark X73. I have reinstalled the software, but it's not installing the printer portion. It is only installing the scanner. Why is it doing that, and can I fix it?

run this clean uninstall utility

download the drivers from lexmark

plug in your printer and install the drivers.

if this does not work then extract the driver file you downloaded "CJXP73LE.exe", go to start ->settings->printer and faxes....install a new printer (make sure local printer and auto-detect are checked)...follow it through and your printer should install. if at any time it asks for drivers or you want to manually point to the drivers then browse to the location where you extracted the "CJXP73LE.exe" file. you can download a program like "winrar" (type it in google) to extract it.

Windows corrupt and driver set


Re your queries:
1. "Is their any possible way to save my data from the other operating system which I can currently use?" - possibly

2. Also, can any one help me to attain the drivers for ASUS z91?
Most of the needed drivers for an Asus Z91E are available at the Asus Website >

Most corrupt files in Windows would not delete your Japanese My Documents. What would probably be gone would be ntldr, hal, various dlls and sys files but most of your .doc would remain intact.  If you can boot using the English Win XP Pro and presuming you have 2 different usernames 1 for the Japanese and another 1 for the XP Pro, then chances are that you can still access the Japanese My Documents. It may not be shown but it should be there under the Japanese username.

Assumng you have administrator privileges, Click on Start, Control Panel, Folder Options, View, tick: Show hidden files & folders, untick hide extensions for known file types, untick hide protected operating system files.

This should expose what were hidden before. Of course it is a different problem altogether if you have the 2 OSes installed on 2 different partitions.

Hope this be of some help. Post back how things turn out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
