Two things

1. check your memory dimms are sloted in properly. You can remove and re-slot them back into the motherboard.

2. reset the bios on the motherboard.

    I still feel this is a memory issue. I would suggest you have the memory tested using the software available at the link below

These are "beep codes" which are telling you something. The computer runs a "Power On Self Test" and if anything is wrong, it tells you that with this beep code. There is always a pattern to the beep code as you have noted. You need to know the make and model of your motherboard. then you can go to the website of the manufacturer and look up the beep codes. It will tell you something like:

Pattern 1 = no keyboard attached
Pattern 2 = no memory installed
Pattern 3 = no boot device detected
etc.

Armed with that information, you know what to do. If your BIOS is an AMI BIOS, the three short codes means there is a problem with the first 64K of your memory. Have you been inside the case? Could you have bumped the RAM?

Hello,
These beeps sound exactly like that of the RAM. If you are not too skeptical about going inside your PC, you can simply remove the RAM and reseat it back firmly. Sometimes this happens that the memory loses good connectivity and would just need a reseat.

Thanks,
Lolita

Since installing my netgear wireless dualband router WNDR3400, the only way I can turn my tower off is to unplg the power supply. Please help


your pc problems have nothing to do with your new router. Your pc sounds like the mobo is not sending a kill signal to the power supply. You can either re-flash you mobo bios or try a patch for windows. Most likely this is not a fixable problem as the cost to fix it will be as high as a new pc.

My operating system has stoped woking. its showing on the desktop that this copy of window is not genuine. i can not download any anti-virus.


The fact that you have a pirated version of Windows and your operating system has stopped working means you don't need any anti virus software.

If you want a free operating system there are many variants of Linux out there which are free!

My advise, dump Vista, reinstall XP
You will always have trouble with Vista and find that you will have to pay for updates and old files will not open. Not to mention if you attach files to emails which were created with Vista may not always open on the receiver's system.

3-3 is either video card or memory related.  Try to reseat your video card and see if that helps.  If nothing still, try to reseat the RAM.  If that doesn't work, try another video card.  If that doesn't work, try different memory.  If all that doesn't work, let me know and I will see what else I can do to help you out.  But from my experience, it is almost always RAM related.

Lexmark z11 Vista Compatible?


Looks like I've cracked it [Touches wooden desk]. Need a USB to IEEE 1284 36-pin Parallel Printer Cable, like the one I received today (ordered yesterday from www.cables2u.co.uk). First, connect it to Z11. Turn on Z11 and boot up Vista PC/laptop. (I run Vista Business on my laptop.) Connect cable to computer. Message appears "Installing device driver software". Click it for status. 'Found New Hardware' box appears. Click 'Locate and install driver software'. A message appears "Error loading LXADSUI.DLL. Specified module could not be found". Click 'OK'. Message appears saying driver software installed successfully. ["Yeah, right ..."] (Have faith, folks!) Now, click Start, then Control Panel and double-click Printers. Right click on Z11 and click on Set As Default Printer. Right click on Z11 again and click on Properties. Check on Ports tab that Port USB is ticked for Z11. On Cartridge Maintenance tab, check right cartridge is showing. If not, click 'Install/Change Cartridge' and follow instructions. Then 'Clean Print Nozzles' and 'Align Cartridges'. Check settings on the other tabs in Properties look OK and try printing a test page! It looks good to me!
