Windows XP in Power Save Mode and no buttons get it out

Hi.  I just switched from a PC to a MAC.  I have several photos on my PC that I'm trying to copy onto CDs so I can put them on my MAC.  My problem is, when I hooked my PC back up, it starts just fine but my monitor is in Power Save Mode.  I've tried restarting the computer, tried rebooting with F8, and unplugging it.  What else can I try to get this out of Power Save Mode.  I can't click on the Start button or anything because the screen in blank.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We got a couple viruses taken off of our computer and it was working fine then when i tried to turn it on the screen is blank and when i click a button on the monitor it says "in power save mode: push any button on the keyboard or mouse" and when i do it doesnt work it just goes blank and the keyboard has lights lit up on it. any help?

    I know this is gonna sound like a dumb question, but is the monitor connected to the proper port on the computer? (Some of them have more than one VGA output, mine has 3). To the monitor, it sometimes looks like a disabled or unused video port is in power-save mode.

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Have you tried running the software in Compatibility Mode? Depending on your version of Windows 7, you may have the ability to run it in Compatibility Mode. Try right-clicking on the Photo Explosion shortcut that is on your Desktop. Then, go to Properties from the pop-up menu. Then, select the Compatibility tab. On that tab, put a check next to "Run the program in compatibility mode for:". Then, select Windows XP SP2. Click on the OK button to save this setting. Finally, try launching the program again.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

I think you have to shut your computer down completely and reboot. This means that you will lose any work you didn't save before going in standby mode.
If your PC has a 'reset' button (usually located near the power button), press it. Your machine should reboot. If it doesn't or if you don't have one, you can try pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds. This should shut down your computer completely. Press the power button once more and it should boot normally, though you might get a warning saying Windows didn't shut down properly. If you get the choice, just choose to boot Windows normally. If pressing and holding the power button doesn't work, try looking for a power switch on the back of your machine. It should be near the power cable. Flip the switch, wait a few seconds and flip it again, then boot your computer as usual. You might get the same message which I mentioned above.

congratulations on switching to mac!plug the external hard drive back into the PC, and copy the photo's to the PC, now plug it into your mac and go to applications-utilities-disc utility, the external drive should be listed on the left,click on the erase tab, at the volume format select "ms-dos file system", then click the erase button, this will erase everything on the drive and set it up so your mac can use it (but its ok because you moved all your pictures to the PC) now you can go back to the PC and copy the pictures on the external drive and it will work with your mac.

Can't install audio driver


Hi!

Please try several things:
1. Try to delete your device from device manager if it exists there: right click on "My Computer" -> Manage -> device manager. Then - right click -> Scan for hardware changes, insert media with your driver software and/or let windows automatically search for driver.
2. Try to reboot in Save mode (reboot, press F8 until booting mode selection appears and choose save mode) and install driver in save mode.
3. If none of above helps - try to update your Windows XP and then try to install driver.
4. Try to change audio adapter physical slot - open your PC and just insert it to other PCI slot (also - de-dust your slots before :) ).
5. Try to unpack driver and manually select it during windows driver installation process (choose not to connect to internet when wizard asks -> Install from a specific location -> Don't search I will choose the driver to install -> Have disk -> browse -> select .inf file and click ok).

Hope this will help. Good luck!

Mac won't recognise canon drive


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to a Windows computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

How to take pictures with this camera -- have no instructions -- new to this -- camera was given to me -- replaced batteries -- 20 shows in view finder -- push button -- nothing happens


1. Turn the camera off by sliding the ON/OFF switch (to the right of the LCD) down to the OFF position. 2. Reinsert the batteries, making sure their polarity alternates, with the battery closest to the hinge of the battery cover pointing down into the camera and the other one pointing up. 3. Turn the camera ON. 4. Press the button on the back of the camera to select the mode. If you do nothing, then the camera is in the Hi-resolution mode. The display will momentarily switch to 20 to indicate that 20 photos are available. When you take a photo, the number will decrease. 5. Press the button on the top of the camera body to take a photo. The camera will beep when you do. 6. IMPORTANT: do not switch off the camera until you download your photos to your computer. 7. Plug in the camera to your computer with its USB cable. This will power the camera when the computer is powered and save your batteries until you can download them to you computer. 7. Install your software and follow the directions (you need to unplug your camera before you start the installation). Once you load the CD, the installation wizard should begin. If it doesn't, then your computer is not recognizing the software. Note: this software does not work on Apple OSX operating system (on my Mac), and I'm having trouble making it work on Windows XP (on my PC).
