Cannot install printer on Windows XP home as administrator. Message says: "you do not have permission to modify the settings for this printer"


Log-into your desktop screen as you usually do. Then click start followed by Control Panel. Once you are in the control panel double click Users. Now select the option to change how users log on to Windows. Options appear, I want you to select the option to enable administrative rights. Once selected click Apply followed by ok. Now shutdown your computer and power on again. Log in and now try to install your printer. Please if you need more information give me a shout.

Take care!

I can not log into my hp mini because I forgot the password is there way to log into it without a floppy disk/flash drive.


You didn't say what version of windows you use. With some versions you can bypass the password in the safe mode. When the computer starts press F8 until it starts to beep. This gives you the option of starting in safe mode. When you get to the screen where you should put in the password you get the option to log in as administrator with no password required. Log in, go to control panel, find your username and change or delete the password.

If you cannot get in this way there is a program available from http://www.windows-password-recovery.net/ which costs 36 euros or 49 dollars. When you pay for it you get the option to download an image file which you burn to a cd. You can then boot any windows computer with this cd and it gives you the option to delete the log on password without going into windows. You then remove the cd and restart windows with no password.

I am using HP pavilion with Windows xp OS installed on. When i turn the power on, a black screen saying "sorry for the inconvenience, but windows did not started succesfully, -safe mode, safe mode...


You need to find your "Operating System CD" sometimes they give you this sort of stuff with your computer but if not, find one from somewhere. Put the CD in when the computer starts and you will see a message saying "Press any key to boot CD" or something similar, boot the CD and press install Windows XP - when you have pressed F8 to agree to Terms and Conditions, it will give you an option to overwrite your current system or Repair. Click repair and it will start installing stuff. DONT WORRY - its not deleting your information its just fixing your computer. When the installation has finished, you will be sorted! - Make sure its a Microsoft windows XP CD though, otherwise you cannot repair your system.

Hope this helps.

Getting a blue screen stop error, but cant log


Please try to start from the beginning and reformat the hard drive by shutting down the system with the cd drawer open. Then insert the windows disk and turn on the pc then the drawer closes and when it tells you boot from cd press enter. Then windows will load. It will give you a couple of options. Always choose format partition. Then you should not have any problems. Unless your hard drive is bad.

boot up the pc but keep pressing F8, this will start you in safe mode screen. When the options come up choose last known good configuration and let it reboot. You should now get into windows, if not then the system files will need repairing using you XP cd, so you will need to set your bios by pressing F2 or Del on boot up, select advanced cmos settings and change your cdrom to first boot device and then save and exit, insert your cd then when prompted hit enter to boot from cd.
