Re: how to save a document on a floppy disk

After a long search, I finally found the CMOS battery of my Armada E500 where I was expecting it the least: under the power buttons bar, attached to...guess what...the inverter!

Need the manual for hp pavilion notebook dv7-4008ca & downloaded

HP Support > Pavilion dv7-4008ca Notebook PC > Main Support page,

Click on Manuals in the list.

Click on -
HP Pavilion dv7 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide
,for a Service Manual.

Click on -
Notebook PC User Guide - Windows 7
,for a User Manual

These are PDF files.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the manual file name you want, it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
(Just wanted you to know while you are staring at a blank screen.
The file is downloading to your computer)

The download is a Temporary download. Once you close the PDF file, you have to go back, and download it again, to see it.

At the top right of the top header is a Floppy Disk icon.
It is the third icon from the left. If you hover your mouse cursor over it, Save a copy, will be briefly revealed.

Click on the Floppy Disk icon.
In the Save File box look to see where the file will download to.
Desktop: Goes to your desktop screen.
Documents: Goes to your Documents folder
Downloads: Goes to your Downloads folder.

You can click on the blue Down Arrow to the right, and in the list click on where you wish the file to download to.
I put them in my Documents folder.
(Actually I am running WinXP right now, so they go to my My Documents folder. Win Vista, and Win 7 it's -> Documents)

In the File name: box below, write down the file name.
Click in this box, and type what you want.
(Pavilion dv7 User Manual, or Pavilion dv7 Service Manual?)

Now go below, and click on Save File. (OK?)

From there put a new CD-R disk in the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), and then Right-click on the file name. Click on Copy.

The reason I do not just directly copy to disk, from the HP PDF file, is if there is a problem I want to have the file handy. I can start over.

(After checking that the disk has a good copy on it, you can then delete the file from the computer you downloaded it on, and save harddrive space on that computer)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hello, good afternoon if you can help me please with this: I tried to format with the information Sean Tech has to do it from the bios but when you get to step 4 tells me that the cd is not bootable on...

1) SeanTech gave a solution for this back on January the 8th, 2009, to a hardik_1985.
Nice that you remembered him if this is you.

2) I agree with your wanting to perform a complete reinstall. Programs like Tune Up 2010 are a bunch of junk anyway.
They're supposedly designed to help the user save steps, but are there just to grab your money, in reality.
You can do the same things by yourself without the program/s.

3) Your start-up configuration needs to be CDROM, Hard Disk Drive, then Floppy Disk Drive.
This will force the computer to boot from the disk in the optical drive. (CDROM)

Go into BIOS Setup, and change it.

After you have moved CDROM to the top of the list in Boot Order, (Or Boot Configuration), make SURE you save changes, or it will be like you have done Nothing at all.

Press the F10 key to save changes, then highlight Yes, or Y, and press the Enter key.

Put O/S disk in your optical drive tray. Restart the computer.,2817,1386949,00.asp

What do I do if the message "Operating system not found" appears when my computer starts, and why won't Windows start? ? Make sure the computer does not have a "non-bootable" floppy disk in the floppy disk drive (if applicable). ? If a non-bootable floppy disk is in the drive: 1. Remove the floppy disk. 2. Restart the computer and confirm that the Microsoft® Windows® operating system starts properly. ? If Windows still does not start, follow these steps to initialize the BIOS: 1. If there is a disk in the floppy disk drive, then remove it. 2. Turn off the computer. 3. Remove any peripheral devices connected to the computer. 4. Restart the computer. Page 1475.

I bought a used T30 so I don't have the instructions. I can't get my arrow pad to work. I can move the arrow but when I click on something I have to use my mouse?? Is there a way to activate so I can...

debiplow401 what if I give you the instructions?

ThinkPad T30 Setup Guide.

(How to;
1) Set up your computer
2) Turn on the system
3) Use the TrackPoint pointing device
4) Volume button controls
5) Access ThinkPad

Click on the first file listed -
t30engsq 62p9239.pdf.............English - Setup Guide for ThinkPad T30

This is a PDF file. Takes a few seconds after you click on the file name to see the first page. Also takes additional time to fully download. Suggest letting the file fully download before looking through it, or saving a copy.

If you are aware of the following please disregard;

1) The box to the right of the blue Down Arrow is the page number box.
If you know the page number you wish to go to, you can;
A) Put your mouse cursor in the box, Left-click once
B) Type the page number
C) Press the Enter key

Much faster than using the Down Arrow.

The + sign in the top header is the Zoom In icon.
The - sign is the Zoom Out icon.
Most of the time the file will be downloaded in a too large view for readily viewing.

To save a copy:
You can save a copy to a CD disk.
This way you can delete it from your computer, and save Harddrive space, and have the file anytime you wish.

Left-click on the Floppy Disk icon.
The Floppy Disk icon is in the top header, and is the second icon from the left.
If you hover your mouse cursor over the Floppy Disk icon, it will briefly reveal,
"Click to save this file to your computer or another location"

After you click on the Floppy Disk icon a small window will come up.
Save a copy...
At the top of the Save a copy window you will see a box with - Save in: to the left.
In the box is stated where the file will download to.

I would put the file in My Documents.
Click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of the box, then click on My Documents in the list.

Down at the bottom of the Save a copy window is the File name: box.
You will see - t30ensq_62p9239.pdf in the box.
You can add to this file name to make it easier for you to find.

Put your mouse cursor in the box right after the f in .pdf
Left-click twice.
Type ThinkPad T30 Setup Guide.

Now go to the bottom of the Save a copy window, and click on Save.

To find, and open the file:
Click on Start> Double-click on My Documents > Click on the file name

Computer problem, help.

This generally indicates a hard drive crash/failure, in which the hard drive will need to be replaced. Rare, but occasionally you will get this error from an operating system glitch. Before you run out and buy a new hard drive, try reloading the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the install, then the hard drive is shot.
