SOURCE: desktop HP Pavilion 7840 says "operating system not found"

As per my knowledge the Windows system you are using is corrupted, so you have to reinstall it & for so it is leading you to the BIOS screen directly. So all you need to format / reinstall the OS.
Manage a Windows setup CD (if you having it, excellent)
About your images you can use this software to recover those files.. I am not gurantee you that it will recover all photos but it can recover almost all photos

Not sure if this is the one that your looking for but you can see for yourself if it is. If not go online and paste in the remote model and search more for better price if your not happy with the price above or it is not the right remote for your device. John

I have an emachine EL1210 with Vista and it is extremely slow printing any scanned item. What might the problem be?

the problem is that you are printing pictures at a high quality setting.
If you scan texts, documents etc, try to change the settings to a more appropriate set of settings, like text, draft, black&white etc.

Also, check your printer settings so the resolution for printing will not be over 600 dpi unless you mean so.

How do i replace motherboard

On a desktop it is easy because you don't have many parts to remove. A digital camera might help to remember where things go. Just remove the case and lay the laptop on it's side. Start unplugging the connections that run from the Power Supply to the motherboard and devices such as the hard drive and DvD Drive. You might have to remove the Power Supply, Hard Drive, Cd Drive, etc if they are in the way of getting the board out. There will either be screws that hold the motherboard to the case or there will be latches used to hold it to the case. Once removed, just lift the board out.

Remember to take your memory, CPU, Heatsink and CPU Fan off the old board and put them on the new one. You will need some Thermal Paste to apply a fresh coat on the Cpu and HeatSink to keep the board from overheating.

I have a emachine that has been put awa for a couple of years and i can't remember how to connect all of the wires..


You can plugin all the wires according to color codes and to it's designated ports.

Please remember that all wires/plugs will not fit on to another port. There's only one port for each wire except for the power cable of your monitor. The power cable of your monitor can be connected on the power supply of your CPU(which is at the back & upper part) but other than the power cable of your monitor, all the other wires only have one port available for them at the back of your tower.

Hope you understand what I am trying to say.... Regards...

When I turn on my Compaq Presario 5000, I get a message on the first screen that says 1801-Microcode Error. And something about needing a new bios? Please help me.

The motherboard of the pc has a corrupted BIOS chip - this isn't fixable, you would need to replace the motherboard who died of old age.
Since this is an extremely old pc there are no replacement or compatible boards left on sale. Sorry, time for a new pc.

I cannot found driver for my acer veriton m261 windows 7 32 bit help please

There are a lot of places on the internet that have drivers (old & new), such as , and I would try using Google Search for Acer and try to get the headquarters, corporation, etc. Most all brands of PC's still have drivers available for anything they have sold if they are a reputable company and I believe Acer is. Also search with Google Search for (acer veriton m261 for Windows 7 32 bit) all at once, in one line. You will get all kinds of hits on acer, veriton, Windows 7, just Windows, etc. Sounds like you are having a problem, so I wouldn't leave any site unexplored. Also try searching for single words like Acer, Veriton, M261, etc., etc. Good Luck! I'll be checking back to see if you were successful or if I think of anything else. It's kinda late and my old brain running low. -:)

My compaq presario sr2010nx desktop won't turn on. I tried fooling with the off/on switch wiring and it came on for a short time. All was well. I hadn't used it for a week and tried to turn it...


Sounds more like a power supply problem. First test the on/off switch by tracing the wires to where it connects to the mother board. The plug is usually marked "pwr sw" . Unplug the wire from the board & short out the 2 pins where the switch was plugged in using a small screw driver or any other conductive material. If the pc still fails to turn on, try replacing the power supply.
Best wishes,

Video drivers for delloptilex gx 260 to operate in vista

The video chip in this pc is an extremely old embedded one, part of the Intel 845G chipset. It's so old and weak that it barely supports XP so there is no chance it supports Vista - because of that Intel never made a Vista driver for it.

I have emachine desk top computer how do I lock this computer only to open with password

this can be achieved in one of two ways. Usually people will set up a Windows account password, this process outlined very well in the following document-

alternatively you can set a BIOS Startup password which is outlined here-

important- ensure that the password is difficult enough to guess but also one that you will remember as once the password is set it would be an extremely technical/difficult process to recover if you forget it.
