Need to reset to factory defaults



Restart your computer. Press F9 key immediately when the ASUS logo appears. This will start the recovery procedure, including the installation of all the drivers and utilities. Follow the instructions. Your computer will be restored to the factory settings.
1. Recover windows to first partition only. this option will delete only the first partition, allowing you to keep other partitions, and create a new system partition as drive "c". 2. Recover windows to entire HD. This option will delete all partitions from your hard disk drive and create a new system partition as drive "C". 3. Recover windows to entire HD with 2 partition. This option will delete all partitions from your hard drive and create two new partitions "C" (60%) and "D" (40%).

Usually, the brand new ASUS notebook computer hard disk is with 2 partitions. So, it is suggested that you select “3. Recover windows to entire HD with 2 partitions”.

Thanks for using Fixya

Can't open outlook express


That's a well-discussed situation if you'd searched for answers much. Answers vary from reinstalling Outlook binaries to running cleanup utilities on the Outlook configuration files, mail archives, address archives, etc. depending on what BSOD you got (seriously, nothing but blue on the screen, no text?)

Backup your outlook address and startup files, and your data if you don't already back it up; then follow the instructions MSDN.com offer for Outlook Express initialization failing/hanging. That will produce a nicer result than just deleting your outlook.ini file. Microsoft like to make it do everything, but the cost is that there are now all these maintenance tools despite the fact that it's the Express (as in condensed) version.

I have CRE and when i back up after clicking open


depending on the size of your backup, it might take several (and seemingly long) minutes to backup your entire database. when it's done backing up, it will pop up a message such as "backup saved successfully." you may also want to try calling up their support to get their automatic backup solution setup. it's comes with the software as an optional add on, but it's free and works behind the scenes on a schedule, it's been a real life saver for me!

Acer Aspire One - blue screen only when try to boot


You may have to remove and reset the HDD and Memory on the unit.
Next, you will recv. the F-2 to continue or F-12 to enter setup.
Enter setup and change date and time.
Save and try.
You may have a damaged HD or boot partition and reloading the operating system will be necessary.

Reseating the HD will assure that you have a good connection and the same with the memory.

Also, if the unit has been dropped, you may have a damaged HD and may need to change it.

How to receive e-mail at more than one p.c.


Hi,
 
Generally users of POP3 email like to download messages to their PC and take them off the central server. But sometimes you'll want to leave them there so you can access them again. Like most other mail client applications, Outlook Express can be configured to leave messages on the server indefinitely or for a specified period of time.
 
How to Set Outlook Express To Leave Email Messages On The Server
Open Outlook Express
Select Tools/Accounts.
Click on the Mail tab, highlight YourAccount and click on the Properties button.
Click on the Advanced tab.
In the Delivery section, select the checkbox to Leave of copy of messages on server.
Select the appropriate checkbox to delete the messages from the server after a certain number of days or until the messages are deleted from the Deleted Items in Outlook Express. (Do also check you mailbox size from your internet provider, If you get a lot of emails you may fillup your mailbox fast)
 
For Outlook 2003
go to Tools > Options.
Select the Mail Setup tab from the Options dialog, and click E-mail Accounts.
Select the email account and click Next
Under the Delivery section of the Advanced tab, Checking the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox instructs Outlook 2003 to leave a copy of your emails on the server indefinitely
 
You will find the same options on all email software. Once you have Set this on all the computers, you will get the same mails on each one.
 
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
Thanks,
VJ

Link from e-mails


Hi

If clicking a hyperlink in Outlook Express appears to do nothing at all, there are likely one or more registered file associations that are configured incorrectly. To repair the associations:

Open My Computer and click Folder Options on the Tools menu.
Click the File Types tab.
Select URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol in the list of registered file types.
Click the Advanced button (Windows XP), or the Edit button (other versions).
In the list of Actions, select open and then click the Edit button.
The Application used to perform action box should contain this, including quotation marks:
“C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe” -nohome
If instead it contains a short name version of that path, or an incorrect path, change it to the above.
Click OK, click OK.
Repeat steps 3-7 for the file type URL:Hypertext Transfer Protocol with Privacy.
Click OK to close the Folder Options window.

EMC Retrospect Express HD It was working and now it is not and is adking me for my original password to change the setup. It is not backing up to My Book


Your My Book World came with a CD that included the Retrospect and a program called MioNet (may be installed as WD Anywhere Access powered by MioNet). You can find your Username and Password by running the MioNet program, and going up to Help > Backup Info. If you have an old version of MioNet you will have the Backup Info button right on the interface on the upper right-hand side, it's a square button.

Maxtor One Touch External Hard Drive 100GB


I had the same problem. I looked up in Maxtor customer support and found the following:

When you start Retrospect Express HD it keeps hanging on Updating status.
http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=188051

Problem:
There is a bug in Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1 that could contribute to the Updating status… error you get with Retrospect Express HD.
Solution: To solve this problem upgrade to Retrospect HD 1.1.
Please see Answer ID 2647: Installing the EMC Retrospect Express HD 1.1 Upgradefor the download and installation instructions.
McAfee Personal Firewall Plus Edition or ZoneAlarm can also be attributed to this hang condition. Adding Retrospect HD as an exception in McAfee Personal Firewall Plus does not resolve the problem. Please see
Answer ID 2152for more information.

Sorry if the links don't wok but ou can find all of this on the maxtor site.

good luck!

I don't know how to access my Western Digital Backup. I have no icon to click.


hi

If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.
