Manual please


Asus Support > M2N68-AM SE2 motherboard > Main Support page,

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M2N68AM/

Click on Download.
(Overview / Specifications / Download / etc )

To the right of the OS: box, click on the blue down arrow.
In the drop down list click on the Operating System you are using.
Wait a couple of seconds.

Scroll down, click on + sign to the left of + MANUAL (16)
Scroll down again.
To the immediate right of the manual files listed, is another blue down arrow.
Use it to scroll the files down.

Look for Version E4374.
(2.28MB. I think it is better than Version E4417)

Click on the blue -> Global <- for Version E4374.

A small window will come up on the right;
Opening E4374_M2N68-AM_v3_manual.zip

Make sure there is a green dot, in the circle to the left of -
Save File.
If not, left-click in the empty circle to the left of Save File.
Now click on OK at the bottom.

A small window will come up on the left. In the wording tells you where the file will download to. You may wish to write it down.

Don't know which version of Windows you are using, WinXP, or WinVista, or Win 7, for the computer you are downloading with.

Guiding for all of them.
WinXP:
In the wording may be Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads.

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.
My Documents: Click on Start, then on My Documents
Downloads: Click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

Windows Vista, and Windows 7:
(Taking the long way)
Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

Documents: Click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents.

Downloads: Click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents, then on Downloads.

When you see the file name DOUBLE-click on it.
In the next window go to the far left, and click on Extract all files.
In the next three small windows click on -
Next, Next, and Finish.

In the last window click on the red Adobe PDF icon, that is next to the file's name.
You will now be looking at a PDF file version of the motherboard manual, (User Manual), for the Asus M2N68-AM SE2 motherboard.

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? )

What's your problem?how to install graphic driver


Since you didn't post the exact model number of the Acer laptop, I can only give you generic information. (It's on the bottom of the laptop in a white sticker)

Go to the Acer Support website,

http://support.acer.com/us/en/default.aspx

Left-click on the Notebook icon at the top. Under the green - Product Support Materials heading, click on the green oblong 'button', with - Select Your Product By Model - in it.

In the list under - Select Line, click on the model line of your laptop
In the list under - Select Model, click on the Model of your laptop.

Finally click on Confirm to the right.

On the next page the page should automatically be open with the Driver tab highlighted.

Go down to the VGA heading.
Look at the Driver file/s listed. You want the newest one by date, or by version. Whichever is newer.

Left-click on the Download 'button'.
A small window will come up on the right.
Left-click on - Save File

Another small window will come up on the left. In the heading at the top of the file, tells you where the file will download to.
Write it down.

The wording may contain Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in it.

[Windows XP. For Vista and Win 7 it's Desktop, Documents, and Downloads]


1) Desktop: The file will be on your Desktop screen

2) My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.


[For Vista and Win 7 it's left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents]


3) Downloads: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.


[Left-click on the Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads ]


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it. Follow the easy instructions of the Installation Wizard.
{Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish. Do Not change any settings. Windows knows the appropriate place to install the drivers}

You cannot just download the Drivers. You have to install them also.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[You should be able to make out the screen on the monitor, even with graphics drivers not installed.
It will look like a page out of the Flintstones, though ]

I have windows 7. When i try to play Nancy Drew: Danger by design a box pops up requesting i insert disc 1. There is only one disc! It seems to work ok on windows xp. Ca you suggest anything to make it...


From the Nancy Drew web site:

Windows Vista/7 Support Installing older games (#1-13) with Windows Vista/7.
While our older games are not completely Windows Vista/7 compliant (notably games #1-13), there is a workaround which has been successful for most players. Please take the following steps to manually install.
If you had previously installed, uninstall the game and then delete all remaining game file folders from your computer, including emptying them out of your Recycle Bin. These files may be in one of the following locations:
C:\Nancy Drew\
C:\Program Files\Nancy Drew\
In your Documents folder: C:\Users\Username\Documents\
Once this is done, make sure you're logged on as an Administrator for your computer and manually install by taking the following steps:
1. Go to your "Documents" folder and create a new folder. Rename the folder with the title of the game.
2. Insert game Disk 1 in your disk drive and open "Computer" from the "Start" menu.
3. Double-click on your CD-Rom/DVD drive, look for a Setup or Setup Launcher Installshield file. Double-click this file to start the installation process.
4. When install asks what directory you want your game to install to, click "Browse".
5. Navigate to the game folder you created by selecting "C:" drive, then "Users" (or User name), then "Documents", then select the game folder.
6. Continue forward with the installation process, when asked if you want to install DirectX, check "No, I will install myself".
7. Upon completion, uncheck the "Play Now" box, click finish and exit setup.
For game titles #1-5, follow these three additional steps:
1. Right-click the game icon that is now on your desktop, select "Properties".
2. Under "Properties", click on the "Compatibility" tab.
3. Check the "Run in Compatibility Mode" box and then select "Windows 98/Me" from the drop-down menu.
You should now be able to open and play the game. If you installed an older version of DirectX with the game, please go to Microsoft's Download Center to download and install the latest version of DirectX for your version of Windows.

First, ensure you are connecting the scanner to your computer. I'm assuming USB connection, and that you're using an operating system supported by this device.

How do I download a Word 97 Document on Floppy Disc to Windows Vista Word Document?


Hi. If I understand correctly, you want to be able to read a word 97 document (and edit it as well, maybe) in Vista Word? If that is what you are asking, open Vista Word and go to file > open, then find the floppy drive in the selection window. Find the document on the floppy and click on it and select open (or just double click it). If it is scrambled or does not open and you get a warming window that reads something like "cannot open file..." or or "cannot read file...) then you may have to download an add on from the Microsoft site. It is an add on that allows Vista to convert MS Word files so it can read them. I must say though, it really should be able to read it as is. Then save it in the native file format of Vista Word. Hopefully this helps.

How do I fax from OpenOffice.org Writter??? I have a HP Officejet J5780 that fax hard copy just fine, but want to fax right from the word processor. I am using Vista Home os.


Sending Faxes and Configuring OpenOffice.org for Faxing
To send a fax directly from OpenOffice.org, you need a fax modem and a fax driver that allows applications to communicate with the fax modem.
Sending a Fax Through the Print Dialog
1. Open the Print dialog by choosing File - Print and select the fax driver in the Name list box.
2. Clicking OK opens the dialog for your fax driver, where you can select the fax recipient.



Configuring OpenOffice.org a Fax Icon
You can configure OpenOffice.org so that a single click on an icon automatically sends the current document as a fax:
1. Choose Tools - Options - OpenOffice.org Writer - Print.
2. Select the fax driver from the Fax list box and click OK.
3. Click the arrow icon at the end of the Standard bar. In the drop-down menu, choose Customize.
The Toolbars tab page of the Customize dialog appears.
4. Click Add Commands.
5. Select the “Documents” category, then select the “Send Default Fax” command.
6. Click Add and then Close.
7. On the Toolbars tab page, click the down arrow button to position the new icon where you want it. Click OK.
Your Standard bar now has a new icon to send the current document as a fax.

Epson 4490 Photo - multiple PDF pages


Hi. Yours probably scans as soon as you have a document in and you double-click, right? I went through this. Double click on the Epson Icon. Make sure the mode preference at upper right is changed to professional. It may start scanning and you have to wait until it's finished to scan again. When you start in professional mode, it brings up a rectangular menu--you probably didn't see this one before (I didn't before changing to professional mode). Now press scan. This gives you a "file save" choice. Chose the location you want. Under the location choice is the Choose Document type option--this is the second key--save as PDF. Now it will bring up that add a page, edit or save file. Professional mode, save as PDF.
