  • LuLuBell628 Sep 15, 2008

    I wish I could find help in layman's lingo. I do not even know how to view the system tray and I do not know what the digital imaging monitor icon is. When I hover over icons on the bottom of my screen, nothing says digital imaging monitor.

    Please

    Someone help me

Make sure that the DIGITAL IMAGING MONITOR on the system tray has a check mark on it.Check from SERVICES window whether the PML DRIVER is running or not.if its not running change the startup type as AUTOMATIC and Started.Open the Twain_32 folder from he run window and delete all file/folders except wiatwain.ds.Delete the printer icon and Install the s/w after reinstalling.After installation is complete open the DEVICE MANAGER window,click on the +sign beside Imaging Device and update the driver of the printer.I've tried this step and it resolved 10 issues.If you have any queries related scanning or printing problems u can send ur query in my Email Id.My email id is sumanofwipro2@yahoo.com.

HP Color Laser Jet printer CM1312nfi: scanner no longer working; when I try to scan, receive error on printer:scanning error, cannot connect. Printer is networked. This error occures only on a networked...


Go to your network and sharing center. Choose homegroup and sharing options. Change advanced sharing settings. Under your home or work profile, scroll down to file sharing connections. Switch to enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption. If that does not work, under password protected sharing, select "turn off password protected sharing". This is not recommended if you use your computer in multiple locations (laptop). I have found that turning all of these features off, running a scan from the printer successfully and then turning them back on, Windows seems to be comfortable allowing the printer to connect to the computer.

After formating; i get error 800b0100 at the 39 minute of setup. This occurred 6 times. I did a complete format 3 times and quick format 3 times


Windows Update Error 800B0100
If you receive the Windows Update error 800b0100, it means that a file needed by Windows Update is not registered with Windows correctly. The System Update Readiness Tool can correct some conditions that cause this error. To use the tool, follow these steps:
  1. Go to the System Update Readiness Tool webpage. In the Information for advanced users section, find the version of Windows and system type of your computer, and then click the link to download the System Update Readiness Tool. If you don't know which version of Windows you have, see View your computer information.
  2. Run Windows Update again.
    gl_ico.png Note Typically, the scan takes 15 minutes or less, but it can take longer on some computers. The Windows Update progress bar is not updated during the scan, and progress seems to stop at 60% complete for some time. This behavior is expected. The scan is still running and you should not cancel the update.

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)
