How do I get out of Top Sites on my opening page?

Going to the address bar in the top of Safari and typing in a website or something to be Google'd with get rid of that page.

If you want to change it so that it doesn't show every time you open Safari, you can do so in Preferences in the General tab. Change your "new window/new tab opens with..." settings to whatever else you'd like.

Hope this helps!

Video Cable may be damaged, causing the display to quit. Video Cable shorting out.

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

Page 70. (Adobe Reader page number box at top)
Remove all components down to the Top Cover. (Palm Rest Cover)

Page 71. Disconnect the Video Cable.
(Display Panel Cable, and Number 1 in the figure photo)

Let's see if you still have a problem with the external display.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.
(Using medium speed DSL connection. Took 6 seconds just now)

ONCE the Top Cover is removed the STATIC shock sensitive components are exposed.
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out, (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
(Laptop or desktop)

A Processor is the MOST susceptible hardware component to Static shock.
For this reason it would be a GOOD suggestion for you to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source, BEFORE removing the Top Cover.

Average price is around $3 to $6. Here is but one example,

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.
(I feel an Anti-Static mat is unwarranted)

You can also set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

I have an HP LaserJet1020 printer. When I try to print a document a 2 inch wide area the full length of the page on the right side of the page) will not print. If I change to landscape printing, the same...

Run the 1/2 print test.
Print a few pages that have failed previously and as the printer is printing open the cartridge cover(top cover).
Pull out the cartridge and look at the paper down below. If the page looks good, you probably need a new fuser. If the page is messed up you could have a bad transfer roller or another bad toner cartridge.

How do you get the hdd out of the case

HP Support > Compaq Presario SR1030NX desktop computer> Main page,

Left-click on Manuals.

Left-click on - Parts Replacement Instructions, in the list.

This is a PDF file. Takes a few seconds to see the first page, and longer to fully download.
Let the file download all the way before looking through it. Watch the Download Progress Bar.

Top of the PDF file. (Top header)
Zoom In icon ( + )
Zoom Out icon ( - )

Use the Zoom Out icon to reduce the view size to 100 percent. (100%)
Go to Page 3.

You can go to Page 3, two different ways.

1) In the Top header is a page number box, to the right of the blue Down Arrow.
Place your mouse cursor in the box.
Left-click once.
Type 3
Press the Enter key.

2) Use the blue Down Arrow

Page 3 shows the Front Panel removed. (Also known as Front Bezel)

Go to Page 11.

A) Open the computer case. (Computer unplugged from power)

Observe Anti-Static Precautions!

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.
Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again.

B) Disconnect the IDE data cable from the harddrive. (The Data cable is also known as the Interface cable)
(IDE is also known as PATA. Parallel ATA)

Note that there is a Locating Lug on the IDE ribbon cable's connector.

In the photo the Locating Lug is on top. It's the two thin pieces of plastic on the top middle.
(For this design. Your Locating Lug design may differ)
The Locating Lug lines up with a Locating Slot, in the IDE connector on the motherboard.
Keeps Pin 1 lined up.

IF your IDE cable's connector DOES NOT have a Locating Lug.
There is a faint Red strip on one edge of the cable.
The faint Red stripe is on the side of the connector that Pin 1 is on.

[ The connector has 40 pins. One is blocked off }

The Red stripe of the cable goes towards the 4 power pins in the HarDDrive.
The four power pins in the Harddrive, that the standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable plugs into.

The above link also shows the standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable, that has to be unplugged.
(Misnomered as Molex)

Note the rounded corners on the standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable's connector.
This is to correctly align the connector when plugging in.
Sometimes these babies are hard to disconnect.
You can CAREFULLY use a pair of pliers ON the connector, and gently wiggle it, as you pull out.
DO NOT pull on the wires!

Removing the Front Panel: (Also known as Front bezel)
Page 16

There are plastic tabs that protrude out from the Front Panel.
They are on the backside of the Front Panel.
They protrude through rectangular slots in the metal frame of the computer case.
Look through the open computer case, and look towards the Front Panel.

The plastic tabs have a hooked end. The tabs are pressed so that the hooked end will line up with the opening of the rectangular hole, in the metal frame of the computer case, then the Front panel can be eased forward.
The tabs may be pressed In towards the middle of the computer, or OUT.
Depends on which way the hooked faces.

There are TWO tabs at the Top of the Front Panel.
There is a tab on EACH side of the Front Panel, located down towards the middle.
The Illustration doesn't show it, but look for TWO more tabs down towards the bottom.

I suggest you ease the hooked ends of the tabs at the Top out, first.
Keeping the Front Panel's top eased out, go down to the Middle tabs.
Then finally go to the Bottom tabs. (IF present)

In the metal frame of the computer case, that lines up with the optical drive bays, and the harddrive bays, there is a metal locking tab.
It's made of spring steel.
Shaped sort of like a Triangle.

The side of the spring steel lock that faces the back of the computer, is gently eased out, and held.
Then the Harddrive can be slid Forward, and out of the computer case.

Sorry to be so lengthy.

This is HP Support, and the download page for the Upgrading and Servicing Guide,

On this page scroll down to - Upgrading and Serving Guide, and left-click on it.
(Second file listed)

This is a PDF file download. The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the Upgrading and Servicing Guide, file name, you will Not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds, or so.

Be patient, as the file is downloading in the background.

The Upgrading and Servicing Guide tells you, and shows you, how to open the computer case. (Page 7)

Barring that you are not able to download this PDF file, I will attempt to tell you how to open the computer case. (If you are using a Dial Up network connection, you may be as old as me, before the file downloads)

1) Computer off unplug the power cable FROM the surge protector. (Not shouting)
THEN unplug the power cable from the back of the computer. (Power Supply)

Now unplug all cables connected to the computer.

2) Lay the computer on a towel on top of a table. Keeps the table, and the computer from being scratched.
Lay the computer on it's Right side. (Computer facing you, the right side is to the right. Hey, don't laugh, lol!)

Loosen and remove the three computer cover screws, on the back of the computer's case.

The computer cover that removes is an L shape. It comes down the Left side from the top, and wraps under the bottom.

Looking at the Top/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove on the Top, of the Left side of the computer case. (Top/Left side corner)

Looking at the Bottom/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove from the Bottom, of the Left side.
(Bottom/Left side corner)

Looking at the Bottom/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove from the Bottom, of the Right side.
(Bottom/Right side corner)

After these three screws are removed, the Left side of the computer cover is slid back about 1/2 inch, (1.25cm), and lifted straight up.

BEFORE you reach inside! (Not shouting)

Your body carries STATIC electricity.
Static can fry out, (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside the computer.

TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static electricity.
If you get up, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.

Now, do you wish to disassemble this desktop computer completely, or just remove, and replace a few hardware components?

The above Upgrading and Serving Guide from HP Support tells you, and shows you,

1) How to remove, and replace the computer cover

2) How to remove, and replace Ram Memory

3) How to remove, and replace an optical drive.
(CD/DVD Drive)

4) How to remove, and replace a PCI card, that is in a white PCI expansion slot, on the motherboard.

5) How to remove, and replace the CMOS battery

6) How to remove, and replace a Harddrive

Should you need further disassembly guidance, let me know in a comment.

I need to find out how to scan a paper from the scanner to my computer so I can make changes on the paper.the printer is a 6100injet all in one HP

If you installed the software from the CD, then:
1. put document in feeder
2. on the computer
[All Programs]
[HP 6100]
[Scan to OCR]
The scanner will scan the document pages and put them on your computer.
It will automatically open your wrodprocessor program (MS Word?)

The OCR (optical character resolution) will be less than 100% accurate and will not handle pictures.
It will also have problems with "tables" and inserted items like Excel sheets.

Best thing to do is to request that the original document be emailed to you instead.

Hope this helps!
