If you have a Recovery Partition .. you can access it by powering on while holding the F-10 key... (some models use a different F-key)..There you can restore or recover windows.. If no Partition exists, you will need a windows OS cdrom and boot to it, at the first screen it stops at, press R to get to your Repair Utility Screen.. Choose the Proper Hard Drive Partition From the choices given, and once it gets to the prompt... type fixboot.... when that finishes, type fixmbr... reboot..

On my windows 7 gateway laptop I am receiving the message "the ordinal 572 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll. I ran a cmd scan and did not find anything. Any suggestions?


How To Fix Iertutil.dll Errors

Important: Do not download iertutil.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of iertutil.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source. Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the iertutil.dll error.
  1. Restore iertutil.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" iertutil.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it. If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted iertutil.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover iertutil.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important: Recovering a deleted copy of iertutil.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.

Can,t get printer to work need to configure and get driver to work


Computer off, Photosmart C4580 OFF, and unplugged from power. Disconnect the USB cable from it to the computer.

Turn the computer on.
Remove all associated HP software for the Photosmart.

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
When the list populates remove all HP software for the Photosmart.
When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.

Restart your computer.

HP Support > HP Photosmart C4580 > Main support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3418707&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Click on the heading - Software and Driver Downloads - in the list.
(Right side)

Select your Operating System. Click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the box with Select in it.

Click on the Operating System you are using.
(If you have Windows XP Home or Pro, click on Windows XP.
Unless you have Windows XP Pro that states it's 64-bit )

I'm going to use Win XP as an example, because the O/S you are using wasn't mentioned.

After you click on your O/S, go to the right, and click on Next in the blue rectangle.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3418707

Using Windows XP for an example I would click on the + sign,
to the left of, Driver - Product Installation Software (2)

The drop down list shows;

A) HP Photosmart Basic Drivers
56.03 MegaBytes in size. (56.03MB)

B) HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
149.41MB in size.

I recommend downloading B)
Get the full package.

Click right on the blue heading -
HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

Scrolling down to the heading - Details and Specifications, and further down to the sub-heading - Compatibility, we see this software is compatible with XP and Vista.

Shows it to be compatible with Windows Vista, and both versions 32-bit, and 64-bit.

Only shows it to be compatible with Windows XP in a 32-bit version.

If it is good for a Vista 64-bit O/S, I'm going to go out on a limb, and state it will work with Windows XP Pro 64-bit.

To download the file click on the blue file name -

PS_AIO_04_C4500_USW_Full_Win_enu_120_210_NB.exe

( [1/1, 149.41m]
This means Page 1 of 1, and the size is 149.41 MegaBytes )

After you click a small window will come up.
Opening - and the file name.

Click on - Save File.

After you click another small window will come up. This time on the left side.
In the heading of this window, tells you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

[ Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Write this down, and the file name. (File name; so you can find it later)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Downloads:
Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy instructions.
(Next, Next, and Finish)

When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

Plug the USB cable of the Photosmart back into the Advent laptop.
Turn the Photosmart on.

After a few seconds, (After all of your Start-Up menu items are loaded, really), a pop-up should come up out of your system tray;

"Found new hardware"

,and perhaps another one,
"Found HP Photosmart C4580"

Post additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Why remove the software, then reinstall?

1) I don't think going to Add or Remove Programs, and clicking on - Repair, for the HP Photosmart software, will do any good.

I think there are too many files corrupted, and the software needs to be reinstalled in full.

2) You may get a driver conflict, with having part of the old HP software still there, and then reinstalling new software.

(Probability is pretty low, but why take chances, or have to do it all over again? )

My computer keep showing dciman32.dll


That is some corrupt files in action. Reinstall your Operating System (Windows) or install a new one (Linux). Make sure to back up any files that you have before reinstalling, as files will not be preserved during the process.

Ive got a msi u130 and it keeps saying arc.con d11 is missing


Download arccon.dll from http://www.ziddu.com/download/9844903/ArcCon.zip.html and install it..

Step by step instructions, how to unzip your files from DLL-files.com.

Open the zip-file you downloaded

Extract the .dll-file to a location on your computer. We recommend you to unzip the file to the directory of the program that

is requesting the file. If that doesn't work, you will have to extract the file to your system directory. By default, this is

C:\Windows\System32 (Windows XP, Vista, 7).(That means Copy the zip file you downloaded to C:\\windows\system32 and right

click on it and select extract here).If its asking for overwriting, select YES).
[To access system32 Type C:\\windows\system32 in RUN. OR go to C drive , then go to Windows folder and go to System32)

Make sure overwrite any existing files (but make a backup copy of the original file).

Reboot your computer.

If the problem still occurs, try the following:

Go to Start and select Run.

Type CMD and press Enter or OK

Type regsvr32 ArcCon.dll and press Enter.
Restart your PC.. now it will work

Link to download arccon.dll is http://www.ziddu.com/download/9844903/ArcCon.zip.html

Can`t load cd/dvd`s in my laptop. Clicking on my computer and the drive is not there, any ideas?


This is caused by the upper and lower filter registry in Windows. I've created a link for you. You have to access this link to download the rmvfltr.exe file. Regardless of the laptop brand you have, follow this instruction/s: It will work.
  1. Access this link: http://tiny.cc/49KcC then it'll ask you to run or save. Download and save it to your desktop first. You'll have the RmvFltrs file on your desktop,


  2. For Windows XP, double-click the file RmvFltrs.exe on the Windows Desktop (select unzip) to start the installation program.

    For Windows Vista, right-click the RmvFltrs.exe file, and choose the "Run as Administrator" option. ** If a User Account Control dialog box displays the message, "An unidentified program wants access to your computer", click Allow. (Select unzip if it asks you to do so.)

  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to complete the installation.

  4. Restart the Computer.
    It should work after computer restarts.:)

Msi notebook wirelss is not working


I suggest you treat your problem as two separate issues. The first is configuring a Local Area Network (LAN) with file sharing. The second is configuring the wireless communication links.

If possible, set up a "wired" LAN that performs as desired before trying to integrate the wireless links into your LAN. Hopefully you could do this with the desktop computer, one or both of the notebooks, and the wireless router. Does the wireless router have four hard wired LAN ports that function as a switch?

While they don't address the wireless component of your problem, The following Microsoft documents (downloads) are excellent resources for understanding and troubleshooting Windows XP file and printer sharing:
File and Printer Sharing with Microsoft Windows
Troubleshooting File and Printer Sharing in Microsoft Windows XP

There's quite a bit of redundant information, so you may want to start with the second document.

Basically, I'm not a fan of "wizards". When they work, you're very happy. When they don't work, you're very unhappy (and don't have a clue how to proceed). Setup the file sharing manually. The documents above essentially provide a tutorial to do that.

When you cannot see all of the server computers on the network in My Network Places or Network Neighborhood, the solution depends on whether you have successful network connectivity.

To check whether you have basic network connectivity from the browse client to the missing server computer, do the following:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In Open, type \\ComputerName (in which ComputerName is the name of the missing server computer), and then press ENTER.

If you get a window that displays the shared resources of the missing server computer, then you have basic network connectivity to the missing server computer. If you get an error message stating that the network path was not found, then there is a problem with basic network connectivity to the missing server computer.

If you have successful network connectivity to the missing server computer but you do not see it in the workgroup window, then it could be due to one of the following:

o The missing computers are configured with different workgroup name
o The browse servers do not yet have all the computers in their browse lists
o The missing computers are not on the same physical network segment

Good luck!
