Question about Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software OEM DVD

1 Answer

I am working on windows 7, not xp. I need help with windows 7 I just want to get my restart, sleep and shutdown buttons to work again.

I just want to be able to use my shutdown, sleep and restart buttons again. They look like they are deselected and I haven't done anything to cause them not to work. Can you please help? I am NOT USING WINDOWS XP. I AM USING WINDOWS & HOME PREMIUM 64 BIT SYSTEM. All answers you gave me are for xp. That is a different operating system and does NOT work the same.

Yes, if you use a Virtual Machine, you can install the version of windows you wish to work with, install the software, and it should work just fine.
You will however need a genuine copy of windows to install in the virtual machine.
You may be able to find an image of the OS you need, or a snapshot of an OS, to load into the VM, it all depends on the type of VM you are going to use

How can i reboot my computer please


Rebooting a computer means, pressing the Reset/Restart button. But if you wish to securely restart it, click Start (Windows XP) and then "ShutDown" button, again click "Restart". There's another option when Windows XP is in Classic mode, once you press the Shutdown button, you'll see a small window showing "Shutdown", you can click the arrow button next to the "Shutdown" and then select "Restart", now click the "Ok" button to restart the system. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, click "Start", if you don't see the "Restart" button, you might be seeing the "Shutdown" button, just next to the "Shutdown" button, there's a small right arrow button, click it and select "Restart". Your system will restart.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How can i reboot my acer laptop


Press Start(ORB at bottom left for vista/w7) and if you're on windows 7/vista, there should be a list button on the bottom right side of the start menu saying "Shutdown"(windows 7) and "Sleep"(Vista), click the list and click Reboot.

On XP you need to click the Shutdown button and before you click shutdown instead click Reboot(Green button If i recall correctly).

Why does my Brother printer goes into Sleep mode and I can't print??

Description:
To solve the problem, please see the following:

  • If the printer status is Offline:

    offline.gif
    Check that the printer is online using the following steps:

    VERIFY THE BROTHER MACHINE IS POWERD ON AND THERE ARE NO ERRORS

    1. If the LCD screen is blank, then the Brother machine is not powerd on the machine to see if it wakes from sleep mode. If it does not, then verify that it is plugged into a working outlet and any power switches are turned to the ON position.
    2. Check the LCD screen for any error messages. An example would be "Paper Jam" or Ink/Toner Empty". If the LCD screen shows an error troubleshoot to clear the isssue indicated.

    CHECK THE PRINTER STATUS

    NOTE : These steps or screens may differ depending on the operating system.
    1. For Windows® XP Users:
      Click Start => Printers and Faxes


      For Windows Vista® Users:
      Click Start => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers

      Click Start => Devices and Printers



    2. For Windows® XP and Windows Vista® Users:
      Right click on the icon for your Brother machine and choose Use Printer Online.

      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Double click on the icon for your Brother machine => See what's printing => Printer => Use Printer Offline (Take the checkmark off.)

Note If the problem still continues, do one of the following:
  • If you find the Related FAQ's at the end of the page, click it and check another solution.

  • If you don't find the Related FAQ's, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".






  • If the printer status is Paused:

    Double click on the icon for your Brother machine => See what's printing => Printer => Pause Printing (Take the checkmark off.)

Restart at shutdown


Hi,

This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
I can give you anotther solution too

Thanks

My computer will not go to stand by or sleep mode


Were you able to make the computer go to sleep mode before? Well what you can try doing is go to start, run and type msconfig, click ok. You will get the system configuration window, then go to the startup tab in the system configuration window and at the bottom of the window there is a button as disable all, click that and on the same window there are startup items, select the antivirus program and items that you would need to have at the task bar. Then click apply and ok. You will get a message to restart the computer. Click restart. As it restarts you will get a message saying that you have used the system configuration window, click do not show me the message again in the message. Also you can go to start, right click on My computer and go to properties, click the hardware tab, and select the device manager button. That would show you the device manager window. From the list of hardwares listed in the window, right click on network adaptors, properties and under the power management tab uncheck all the power options checkboxes. Now you can close all the windows and try to go to sleep mode again. You can also try disconnecting the USB devices as you try going to sleep mode and see if that works, if yes, try connecting the USB devices one at a time and check again.
