Re: some problems in comp.

You need to be a bit more specific with the problem.  What images doesn't it show?  What about bootable setup?  What kind of bootable setup?

My emachines e350 won`t turn on it alweys says No bootable device--Please restart systam and I do that and it says it again

Check that you have not left a non-bootable CD, diskette, or DVD in the drives of your PC, nor have any USB devices plugged in that the system might be looking to try to boot from.

If the above check is clear, then go into the BIOS settings and check that your internal hard disk drive is set as the first boot device or is ahead of any other disk drives you may have installed.

You cannot connect computers to each other by just using a standard USB cable - it doesn't work that way.

If you still cannot boot from your internal hard drive, then you should consider downloading a copy of Hiren's Boot CD (which is a CD .ISO image) then burn this to a real CD and try booting from that media - you may have to select the CD as a boot device in your BIOS or if you get a boot options menu.

If you can boot the Hiren's CD ok, then your internal hard disk may have failed - you can test this with the DOS Programs of the Hiren's CD by selecting Hard Disk tools then selecting HDAT2 which will try to find any installed hard disks then allow you to test these and repair problems if possible.

When trying to reinstall, i get as far as.."comp. is checking system configuration" then its just a dark blue screen, it will not take me any farther. HELP PLEASE

The only time I had install problems was due to the disk itself no matter how good it looked. You could probably test this without cost by downloading and burning a bootable linux (Mandriva, Kubuntu, etc) disc for free off the internet and seeing if that will complete. You can always uninstall from control panel later.

I have downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 on to my desktop. Guidance required on how to operate from here

You will need to burn a disc from the image file you downloaded. You can use windows built in function or Imgburn (free).
This creates a bootable disc, pop it into the drive, reboot with your dvd drive set as 1st bootable device. Follow the onscreen prompts

Dell Precision 490 constant reboot after ghost image completed


I figured out how to ghost a Dell Precision 490 with a 32 bit Windows XP Image! Like you I had the same problem where it would constantly reboot after I imaged it with an existing 490 image. The answer is actually very simple. Boot up your Precision 490 and hit F2 to enter the bios. Select Drives and then SATA Operation, change it to "Raid Autodetect / ATA". Reboot the 490 and re image the machine, it will now work!

When creating a Kai's Power Show quick show the images in the slide show are always much smaller than the computer screen images on the monitor or projector. When projecting a show this not a problem,...

Pose your problem in a Kai's Power Show category, natch.
Then the experts can tell you to configure quick show and save your configuration.
You should probably let people on to what version you're using, and double-check that you haven't specified a need to keep room in the matte for the full file-path, title, metadata, and other stuff that would use up the other 3/4 of the screen in the show template you saved last time.
Girl, would -that- be a space-killer.
