How to add majicjack to my new computer

When you are referring to Magic jack, a voip connector it should be inserted in an USB connector. But as with all devices you plug in on an USB connector, first install the appropriate software and then put in the device, or it won't work. Also look if your USB device is compatible with the software (OS) you are running.
Older devices, can't be installed on newer windows systems if the producer f=did not deliver correct drivers to microsoft.

Computer will not turn on. when power button is pushed, battery and power cord lights flash on and off. Plugging in does not help. How can I make my computer work again?

Try doing this:

1. Remove the battery and unplug the computer.
2. While there is no power connected, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3. Plug the computer back in, but don't insert the battery yet
4. See if it will turn on now, and if it does, insert the battery again.

Sometimes this works to drain some residual power that is still inside the machine. I've done this on a couple of machines and it has resulted in them starting up fine. If this doesn't work, you may have a more serious problem and need to have it looked at by a technician.

HP Pavilion a384x PC, 8 beeps, doesn't boot up

This beep code indicates a possible motherboard fault.
Some components may not be making proper electrical connection.
Open the desktop and remove the cable connectors and components one at a time and insert them on back on the motherboard.
Also remove the various PCI cards etc. and insert them back into the various slots.
If it still doesn't boot up or cannot go into the BIOS configuration, then it is a faulty motherboard. The hard drive should be OK but you won't know for sure until you test it by connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port.

Headphone jack seemingly screwed up

What generally happens to connectors, especially exposed to air is they oxydize.

Buy a can of "Contact Cleaner" from a local Radio Shack and spray it (through the thin tube usually provided) into the jack. One quick push, dont flood it. Take the earphone jack and insert and remove it several times, wiping off excess, which sould clear contacts and it should work normally again. If not it would have to be replaced which is no easy matter requiring an experienced Technician or Factory. Sometimes it cannot be replaced without damaging the Mother Board. This however sounds like a common problem the Contact Cleaner will fox

My hp nx 6310 cannot see my hard disk

Your computer cannot find your hard disk. The hard drive could be faulty or the hard disk controller has failed.
Reseat the hard drive (remove it and install it again), this may fix your problem with the connector on the motherboard.
If reseating doesn't work, the hard drive may be faulty, remove the drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if this computer see your hard disk as an external drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive then it is OK and the fault most likely is the controler in the laptop.
If you cannot see the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. To get your laptop operational again, you need a new hard disk and need to install Windows on the new hard disk together with your

USB device not recognized

Hi there,
I would try visiting the Cannon offical website,
Make sure you have your correct model number for the usb device and try searching for a correct updated driver for your device and your operating system.
Sometimes there are viruses that can effect widnows in ways that can cause your pc not to recognise devices etc. in this case try AVG anti virus its free.
Try uninstalling everything printer related completly unplug the device, turn off the computer and unplug it, then start again. Make sure you dont plug the printer in untill you have re installed the device,
try changing USB ports where its plugged in and try a different cable.
Windows XP is a pain for USB devices and usually with older hardware will pop up the Device not recognised.
Also in case you incidentally modified something go into start , help and support, fixing a problem, then, using system restore to undo changes and look for a little icon and text saying run the system restore wizard.
Follow the steps and restore your computer to an earlier time say a few days ago when it worked. It still helps to back up all your info just in case...

I know your really not going to like the last option here, but back up everything settings ie internet, files and pictures and turn off your pc and insert the windows xp cd and try reinstalling fresh.
also make sure you have your xp key the number you have to input or youl have to ring microsoft.

Hope this helps you out

Slow computer

I think what you are talking about is that the usb device could run faster if inserted into a USB 2.0 slot. If your computer does not have USB 2.0 (which yours does not) you will just have to live with a tad less speed when transfering files to the usb device. No beg, and you probably would not notice the difference.

Please rate this response.

Thank you

ASpire 5580 series, no power

Hi Dhadha, 
Try this: - remove AC adapter plug - remove the battery - insert the battery again. - try power up the laptop.
I have same problem, but this trick always work, and I always do this every power up. :)
However, I am using a usb optical mouse for an indicator. When inserting the battery, I check the light on the mouse. If it is flashing the second I insert the battery, then the power up will be successful. IF it is not, then remove and insert the battery again.
Try it.
