How do I turn the WiFi on


Open your Internet browser and navigate to the Samsung PC Studio download page

(see Resources for link).


Click the link next to the operating system you currently have installed on the computer. Momentarily the software begins to download directly to your computer system.


Double-click the downloaded software to load the installation wizard. Click "Next" on the welcome page, then accept the end-user agreement and leave the current installation name and location as-is.


Select "Install" to install the software directly onto the computer system.


Plug the USB data cable into the power connection port on the Samsung L760, then plug the other end of the cable into a USB port on your computer.


Load the software you just installed; the computer automatically detects the hooked-up cell phone.


hope this helps

Installed a new graphic cards for Gateway DX4710-UB801A, it works for a day, but the next day, it wouldn't turn on, the power supply is not running.


Pull the new graphics card out to see if the power supply will start up, if no change, you will need a new power supply module.

How to connect to a laptop


Lexmark is one of the most popular printer manufacturers, and the installation process is fairly straightforward no matter what computer brand you have. Lexmark, however, doesn't always include all of the equipment required to hook up the printer. If you want to hook up your Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop, you will probably need to purchase a printer USB cable.

1.Plug your Lexmark printer into the power outlet.
2.Turn on your laptop, or make sure all software programs are closed if your computer is already on.
3.Insert your installation disk into your Gateway laptop's CD or DVD drive. Wait for the "Welcome" screen to appear. If it doesn't appear after a minute, launch the installation CD manually by going to your start menu and clicking on "Run." In the "Run" field, type: D:\setup.exe
4.Press the "Install" button on your "Welcome" screen to go on to the "Introduction" screen.
5.Press "Continue" on the "Introduction screen" and press "Continue" again on the "Read Me" screen. Agree to the license agreement and follow any additional installation prompts.
6.Connect the Lexmark printer to your Gateway laptop when prompted. Plug the USB cable to the back of the Lexmark printer in the "Quick Connect Laptop Port." Then plug the other end of the USB to your Gateway laptop.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

SimpleTech 250GB External Hard Drive can't be recognized


First of all,

uncheck the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" option in the device manager for USB Hub Properties, Power Management Tab.

Try rebooting the computer once as C:\Windows\inf\INFCACHE.1 file may be corrupted and need to be replaced (either restore a previous version or just delete it and try connecting again).

Next,completely uninstall all USB devices and the main hub and then re-install.

Wester Digital My Book 1 TB problems


Try booting your computer first and then connect the usb cable to the usb port on the computer. Connect the power supply cord directly to a wall socket. Also try the usb cable on different usb ports on the computer. If possible also try it with a different usb cable. If nothing works, check the file format system under disk management, you might have to re-format it.

eistot. Let me guess. You operating system is Vista. This is a common problem for Vista users. Open control panel, open system, click the hardware tab, click the device manager button.
Scroll down to your devices that have a yellow ! point. Right click once on a device & left click update. Windows hardware update wizard will open, click not at this time & click next. Click install from a list or specific loacation. Click the brows button & than next. Point windows to C:\windows\system32 & choose to look in sub folders too. Windows should find your USB devices again.
If windows fails this endeavor please just post back here with your results so I can suggest another rout.

Good Luck & kind Regards eistot
