SOURCE: product key

If you downloaded from Garmin, then you probably have an account on their website. Log in (or create account if necessary) and go to the home page. Click on myMaps, then click on Map Downloads. Your Product Key should be listed there.

SOURCE: loading mp3 files to garmin nuvi 350

The device is not recognizing the file name. The Garmin GPS will only recognize MP3 files. Ipod (MP4) and other media files will not play. Converting the files to the MP3 format will correct the problem.

SOURCE: System software missing

The fix is actually pretty simple. Contact Garmin customer support they will send you the fix in an email. The file is a zip file that you unzip to your desk top then you just follow the instructions. I would recommend keeping the file on your desktop just in case it happens again. Once the system is restored then the updater works properly.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi system software missing

I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Getting stuck on the flashing Garmin logo, or a message about not finding any maps, are indications that the firmware / system software inside your GPS has been corrupted.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

Disable Notification Balloons in XP

If you are annoyed with Windows popping up a balloon notification telling you things you already know every time you turn on your machine, here is a quick tip on completely disabling them. (Note this requires a registry modification so be sure to back up your registry before making any changes.)

You should note that this will disable all balloon notifications, so proceed with caution.

Click on Start \ Run and type in regedit


Now we will navigate to this path in your registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Advanced


On the right pane right click on an open area and choose New \ DWORD Value


You will see New Value #1. Change this to EnableBalloonTips.


Next double click the new registry entry you created. In the Value Data field set it to 0 (zero). Make sure Hexadecimal is selected under Base. Click OK.


Finally restart your system and enjoy the clean boot up with no balloons popping up at you.

To remove this registry hack, just delete the registry key that you created.

How do i change notification settings

A simple registry edit will stop the bubbles, for all applications. You can watch the screen cast to see two ways to make the change. You can either make the editmanually using regedit, a registry editor that comes with Windows. Oryou can download a file from Murphy and double-click it. The file will make the change.
You don’t have much to worry about. In fact, you can right-click thefile (after unzipping it), select Edit, and you’ll see it’s just acouple lines of text. The change is easily undone. Simply delete theentry from your registry.
The balloons will stop appearing for all applications - only for theuser you’re logged in as when you make the change. Log out and back into test your results.
If you’re comfortable in the registry go ahead and make this entry:
Add a DWORD value in the following key, and name it EnableBalloonTips. Set its hex value to zero.


Not a registry person? Watch the screencast.
I don’t even know if they have bubbles in Vista…

How do we remove balloon tips from vista home?

Here is how to disable balloon tips in windows vista.

Click start and go to run. Type gpedit.msc (this is used to open group policy) and press enter. Now open User configuration, then Administrative template after that start Manu and finally Taskbar.

Now in option enable it and click ok. Close the gpedit and reboot the system.

Congratulation you have disable your awful balloon tips in windows vista.

Gpedit.msc is not available in windows vista home and premium edition’s not to worry we can do the same from registry in windows vista home and premium edition.

Again go to run (windows key + R) and type regedit and press enter.

Expand registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER >> SOFTWARE > Microsoft>> Windows > Current Version>> Explorer > Advanced.
Right click and create new Dword value and give name as EnableBalloonTips.
Give value as 0(zero)

Whoopie cushon/balloon noise

Try disconnecting the air intake and see what happens (that won't harm the engine). I don't believe it will harm the engine w/ this noise, although it might be a little embarrassing. They have been using corn to make gasoline, I wonder if they started using beans?
Let me know the results and any new clues you may think of or the truck may develop. Have someone under the hood when u shut truck off to see it they can figure exactly where it's coming from. Beano in the gas tank? No, No, don't do that. countrycurt0
