My laptop wont come on

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

How to create simple batch files

Creating a batch file
MS-DOS users
Microsoft Windows and other users

MS-DOS users
To create a basic batch file in MS-DOS, follow the below steps that give you an example of how to create a basic batch file.

  1. Open an MS-DOS command window or get to MS-DOS. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CHDOS.
  2. At the MS-DOS prompt, type: edit test.bat and press enter.
  3. If typed properly, you should now be in a blue screen. Within the screen, type:

    dir c:\windows
    dir c:\windows\system

  4. Once the above three lines have been typed in, click File and choose exit; when prompted to save, click "Yes." Users who do not have a mouse cursor can accomplish this same task by pressing ALT+F to access the file menu, then pressing "X" to exit, and pressing enter to save changes.
  5. Once you are back at the MS-DOS prompt, type: test and press enter. This will execute the test.bat file and begin running the file. Because the first line is pause, you will first be prompted to press a key. Once you press a key the batch file will run line-by-line; in this case, listing the files in the windows and windows\system directories.
If you wish to add more lines to this batch file you would simply type "edit test.bat" to edit the file again.
Additional information about the MS-DOS edit command can be found on our edit command page. Some versions of MS-DOS and bootable diskettes may not have the edit command; if this is the case, you would either need to obtain the file to access this file or use the copy con command.

Microsoft Windows and other users
A Windows user can still use the above MS-DOS steps if they wish to create a batch file. If, however, you're more comfortable using Microsoft Windows or your operating system, you can use any text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad, to create your batch files, as long as the file extension ends with .bat. In the below example we use the Windows notepad to create a batch file.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type: notepad and press enter.
  4. Once notepad is open, type the below lines in the file or copy and paste the below lines into notepad.

    @echo off
    echo Hello this is a test batch file
    dir c:\windows

  5. Click File and click Save; browse to where you want to save the file. For the file name, type "test.bat", and if your version of Windows has a "Save as type" option, choose "All files", otherwise it will save as a text file. Once all of this has been done click the Save button and exit notepad.
  6. Now, to run the batch file, simply double-click or run the file like any other program. Once the batch file has completed running it will close the window automatically.

Give me dos command for sdat file

Use the cd command to change directories to where the file is located. Use the dir command to get the exact file name, then use the filename.exe /e to extract the files. Use the dir command again to make sure they extracted. Then use scan /all /adl /sub /clean.

Dos problem with sound maker value 5.1

Go to DOS prompt.
If it works (shows info), then direct screen-output to a text doc.
Drive, folder path and filename are your variables.
I used MSDOS many years ago, so my memory of the command name is SYSINF but not 100% guaranteed it is.
May be sysinfo.
Try entering HELP at the DOS prompt which will list all available DOS commands.
Once you have your resulting text-file, view and / or print it.
Look for IRQ conflicts, problem areas, drivers and so on....
Happy hunting !! :)

Need help installing the firmware for an HP LJ p3005n. I have the download, and the printer is locally connected *USB*


As per the instructions from HP for windows systems:

If the device is shared on the network, then the following command can be issued from a command prompt: copy /b FILENAME \\SHARENAME\PRINTERNAME
where FILENAME is the name of the .RFU file,SHARENAME is the name of the machine, from which the printer is being shared, and PRINTERNAME is the printer's share name.
If the device is attached locally, then the .RFU file can be sent directly to the printer with a COPY command from a command prompt or DOS window:
where FILENAME is the name of the .RFU file and PORTNAME is the name of the appropriate device port (such as LPT1).
The following can be set on the computer to help address a timeout message that may occur during an update:
From a command prompt or DOS window type the following command and press the enter key:
Mode lpt1:,,p
If the device is attached to a parallel port other than LPT1, then substitute the proper LPT port number in the MODE command. Once this command has been set the file can then be copied to the printer with the above mentioned COPY command.
NOTE: When the upgrade process has completed the LaserJet will reboot. Once the printer is back online, print a Configuration Page and verify that the new firmware has been installed.
