Hi compkid,

Probable reasons are:
1. wrong password;
2. virus infection;
3. missing or corrupt Windows start-up files;
4. possible (though unlikely) hardware problem(s).

Possible workaround:
a. try running Safe Mode;
b. Reset/Delete your Password(s) (I'm sorry but I can not go any further as to how to do this. Best is Google for it);
c. for virus scanning/hard disk scan/check-up/repair, you need to remove the HD from the PC where it is original installed and with the use of an external USB enclosure, connect it to a 2nd PC and perform the diagnostics from there.
d. Re-seat/clean tips of your video and/or memory.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

How to format usb?

Formatting a USB Universal Storage Bus is common for those "USV's" or we commonly call it: Universal Storage of Viruses. An example of a USB virus is the problem that we can't access it. We can't see or at least recover our files, and it cause sometimes an error in formatting it. So I will teach you how to format a USB in other way than the GUI one -- the one that uses a right-clicking and Format--
OK let's start!

A. Opening a Command Prompt :
1. Click Start 2. Then click All Programs 3. Point to Accessories 4. And click Command Prompt
1. Open RUN ways of opening it:
Hold the Windows (it is in between the left CTRL and ALT ) picture on your keyboard then press R ,Type cmd ,Press OK, or Click Start then RUN, Type cmd Press OK ,Command Prompt in its default location .B. Type the location of the USB. It is commonly D:, E:,G:, or H:, depend on the number of disk inserted. C. Press Enter on your keyboard. It will go to the location typed. D. Type Format location of the USB: then press Enter on your keyboard.E. Then the format process will begin . I didn't press enter thought my USB have has no problem with it ;D
F. The command prompt will say that the format is done. And that's it! You're done! Congratulations!

Got Motorola SB5101u cable modem get ip address and works with xp/pro, but can't get vista computer to get IP address even though have configured for automatic ip / dns. Tried everything I could think of

Obviously make sure its set to automatic IP/dns. If thats not working you need to do this

Click on Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on command prompt and hit run as administrator.

In Dos prompts type these commands in EXACTLY AS WRITTEN.

netsh i i r r
netsh firewall reset
netsh winsock reset

Also, if you have anti virus like norton or trend micro or mcafee or webroot, you *NEED* to disable their firewalls and possible the entire program.

Some isp's for some reason make it impossible for Vista machines to pull ip addresses dynamically because of a flaw in windows vista. If this continues, i would contact your ISP and request a motorola surfboard 900 series modem, or a cable modem that is in route mode (NOT bridged, as bridged modems will pull a public ip address)

I am not able to install the sprintsmartview to my dell studio 17 computer i keep getting an error 1721.

Since this error seems to reference the "Windows Installer" which is separate from the Installshield engine, I would probably try updating that:
The error by Windows Installer Package happens in Windows Vista because the of custom actions set in the installer package fail with missing permissions, involving custom actions that scheduled for both immediate or deferred execution. Visual Studio custom actions run while impersonating the installing user but only run with standard user privilege, and not with elevated administrator privilege as required in Windows Vista, if the msidbCustomActionTypeNoImpersonate bit is not set. Even though Windows Vista prompts for privilege elevation, however, only custom actions that are running in the Local System account get elevated correctly, while custom actions that impersonate as the current user do not.
Thus, the error usually happens on older versions of setup installer which install or uninstall programs meant for earlier versions of Windows operating system, such as XP, 2000, Me and 9x. However, if you're the programmer or developer for the installer program, probably you can do much to change the bit or installer sequence to solve the issue. But, there are still resolutions to fix the error 1721 that happens in Windows Vista, and probably has more than one one solutions or workarounds that users can try to get the software program installed.
Run an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator option to start the installation
This method will probably allow most failed .msi installer to install/uninstall probably. Simply open an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator setting, and then execute the .msi executable.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

I have a Arris Modem and can not get on to the internet. The IT people at Bresnan took a look and found nothing wrong with the Arris. The modem is able to ping and says its online and ready to work, but...

Do you have a cable connection kyle? i think you're using a vista operating system. Click on START, in start search bar type CMD then you'll see the command prompt as a search result. Right click and run as administrator. When you have command prompt, try to ping any website, for example if you're able to ping yahoo that means your connected. If not do IPCONFIG, check your IP address and call your ISP, ask them if its a valid IP that they're giving out.

1. Place your Windows XP CD in your cd-rom and start your computer (it’s assumed here that your XP CD is bootable – as it should be - and that you have your bios set to boot from CD)

2. Keep your eye on the screen messages for booting to your cd Typically, it will be “Press any key to boot from cd”

3. Once you get in, the first screen will indicate that Setup is inspecting your system and loading files.

4. When you get to the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to Setup Windows now

5. The Licensing Agreement comes next - Press F8 to accept it.

6. The next screen is the Setup screen which gives you the option to do a Repair.

It should read something like “If one of the following Windows XP installations is damaged, Setup can try to repair it”

Use the up and down arrow keys to select your XP installation (if you only have one, it should already be selected) and press R to begin the Repair process.

7. Let the Repair run. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files which can take several minutes.

8. Shortly after the Copying Files stage, you will be required to reboot. (this will happen automatically – you will see a progress bar stating “Your computer will reboot in 15 seconds”

9. During the reboot, do not make the mistake of “pressing any key” to boot from the CD again! Setup will resume automatically with the standard billboard screens and you will notice Installing Windows is highlighted.

10. Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen and when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This is the security hole! A command console will now open up giving you the potential for wide access to your system.

11. At the prompt, type NUSRMGR.CPL and press Enter. Voila! You have just gained graphical access to your User Accounts in the Control Panel.

12. Now simply pick the account you need to change and remove or change your password as you prefer. If you want to log on without having to enter your new password, you can type control userpasswords2 at the prompt and choose to log on without being asked for password. After you’ve made your changes close the windows, exit the command box and continue on with the Repair (have your Product key handy).

13. Once the Repair is done, you will be able to log on with your new password (or without a password if you chose not to use one or if you chose not to be asked for a password). Your programs and personalized settings should remain intact.
