It sounds like the easiest solution would to either run the repair sequence from a windows xp disk (may not be a perminant fix) if that doesent work just use the xp disk to format the drive and install a new operating system

    i totaqllly agree i really like this site but yeah if it was a hard drive failure its really easy to replace one. depending on the size hard drive you get it can run you fromj around 20 bucks to around a hundred depending on if its a sata hard drive then you just run the installation disk for windows xp and itll put the operating system right onto the new hard drive and it will be the same as if you did the format sequence

My partner turned his acer aspire 5735 laptop off last night, tried to turn it on this morning and it looks like its trying to launch but cant. Gives the option to launch in safe mode and when he does cant...

when it says to get in the safe mode it has to have an option for last good known configuration...this is the option to choose...cause it was closed from the power button instead of the regular windows close....anyway might have damages...and needs to be restored...if can not boot at all...just insert a restore **** or a boot-able windows...and get ahead and reinstall or at least go to restore and when it ask for commands..( in the first retore) ...just type fixboot...

Communication problem with a MP210 Canon Pixma

Yes! No WIA, no scanning! It means Windows Image Aquisition is not turned on... Not only will the scanner not work but also other Imaging devices like cameras. The best way to find out will be to try and scan from Microsoft Paint. Go to Start, all programs, accessories then look for paint. When paint opens, click file then from scanners or cameras. Try to scan, if it scans then WIA is ok.
It means is the scanner software that was not installed correctly so uninstall reinstall just the scanner software! If Paint does not scan, then its your computer's Operating system (winxp) at fault. Make sure WIA is started, or better try to restart that service (in control panel, administrative tools, services, look for Windows Image Aquisition, restart the service).
