uninstall your yahoo messenger. Shut down your computer. Then switch it on and re-install it again. If the problem is not with your connection then this is the simplest way to solve it. Just renew the settings by re-installing the program.

Lost my disk to intstall my Dell 924 AIO ink jet printer. I need to download from online


Issue 1: Uninstall the Existing Dell™ Printer Drivers
Before reinstalling any printer drivers, it is necessary to remove any printer drivers that were previously installed. Not doing so can cause problems that prevent the computer from communicating with the printer.

To uninstall previous printer drivers:
  1. Turn off the printer.


  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of your Dell printer, click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Dell™ Printers and then point to the listing of your Dell printer and then click the Uninstall Dell Printer icon.


  3. When the Dell Printer Uninstall confirmation window appears, click Yes. This process may take several minutes to complete. Do not attempt to power off the computer at this time.


  4. When the Dell Printer Uninstallation window appears, click to select the Yes, I want to restart my computer right now (recommended) option, then click OK. (The system automatically shuts down and restarts.)

    After the system restarts, the printer uninstallation process is complete.

Hi Have a Dell Pc Windows 7 OS. it will not shut down unless I hold the button. Start-up in good shut down is always a problem


This is a possible malware or virus attack. Your system is encountering data or system corruption preventing it to execute the command during shut down. Best fix is to reinstall Windows 7 in your computer to erradicate all errors and make sure to install an updated security software (antivirus) afterwards.
