Antoniogmart,

Unfortunately, the Optiplex 740 did not ship with a Factory Restore Partition. You will need to manually reinstall Windows, Drivers and Software. Below are links to provide you with information on installing Windows XP as well as the drivers download page.

My model AFI2538AEW fridge control panel is stuck and I cannot select anything on it.


Can you unplug and replug it back in to reset compter? It might be easier to go to your circuit breaker box, vs pulling fridge out, and turn off fridge from there. That will cause it to reset. Here is the manual for it.

Lighted control panel on front all lit up, not able to change temp settings or any other settings.


Hello Loki0228,

I understand that you are experiencing a problem with the control panel on the front of your fridge. You may want to reset it to factory settings. To do this you will need to press on the factory defaults image for three seconds. The factory defaults is located on the upper right next to the on/of emblem.

This should reset the whole unit back to factory settings and allow you to change the temp to the desired temps. If this does not work unplug the unit for 2 minutes and plug it back in and it should restart the system.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

you need to reload everything from your Recovery Disc. Do you have a recovery disc? If you don't have, just format your hard drive and re-install your OS. Install your motherboard drivers from the CD you have when you first bought it. Also, reinstall the programs you have. In this way, you have everything fresh like brand new.

Each DVR or box that allows you to access anything other than broadcast analog signals (channels 1 thru 100) has to be registered with your cable company. The box has an internal device number similar to the MAC address a wireless PC card might use to connect to a WiFi network. If that number is not registered as a box allowed to be on your account, then it will do nothing at all other than display those numbers you refer to. This is done to prevent you from buying a cable box from somewhere else, instead of renting the one from the cable company. The cable company looses that "rental" money if they allow this. You may be able to contact your cable company to see if they can add that box, and will ask you for numbers on the bottom or back of the box. You may also be required to pay an additional HD charge to have a 2nd HD box in your home, even if you own the box.

The bottom line is to contact the cable company, let them know what you have, and ask what is possible.
