    tried rebooting with a rescue disc didn't help
    froze before the drive could kick in, I interrupted the power, hit the reset, Unplugged the power cord and let the power supply cool, none of these attempts worked. Aside from the " upgrade bios" error message I can't figure out what is causing it.

How can I check my purchases so that I can find my voucher?

Hi Anne

On a computer: Select "my vouchers" in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

On a mobile phone: Select 'vouchers' at the top right-hand corner of the screen.

In the iOS app: Select 'vouchers' at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

In the Android app: Select the menu button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen and select 'my vouchers'.

From the "my vouchers" page of your account, you can also sort your vouchers by expiration date -- this is a convenient way to see which ones you need to use soon or mark a voucher as "used" to remind yourself that you've already enjoyed it!

Boot from expresscard usb3.0 acer aspire 5920g

When you first start the computer from a cold boot, there should be a brief message that flashes in the lower left hand corner telling you to press "esc, ctrl, del, or some other key" to enter startup menu.

Once the startup menu displays, one of the should be boot options or order. Select that and simply select the expresscard USB 3.0 or associated drive letter from the options menu.

Flashing start

This could be from the setup procedure in the Bios.
When you start the computer, hit DEL and see if you can open the Setup section. Look around for BOOT START whereby a command may be RUN TEST when Starting, or something like that reference. Just select Turn OFF or Stop, whatever command is showing. Go to F10 or save, and restart the computer. If that did not stop the problem, you may have to clear the BIOs completely and reset the data from scratch. Some computer BIOs allow for a reset to DEFAULT.

When booting up, the monitor status splash shows up. Then it goes into a black screen with some small white boxes in upper left-hand corner. It takes forever to display the log-in screen, probably more...

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

How to set the wr330 watch lost instructions.

On the face of the watch, there are four buttons arranged around the circle of the watch face in four positions. Starting with the upper left hand button (labelled SET), and working clockwise around the face of the watch (to ADJ., EL, and MODE), I'll label the buttons "A", "B", "C", and "D".

In other words...
Button "A" is the button labelled "SET" in the upper left hand corner of the watch.
Button "B" is the button labelled "ADJ." in the upper right hand corner of the watch.
Button "C" is the button labelled EL in the lower right hand corner of the watch.
Button "D" is the button labelled "MODE" in the lower left hand corner of the watch.

Setting the Time.
1. Press and hold D as if you were setting the alarm. As above, the stopwatch will momentarily appear and then after 2 seconds the alarm time will appear with the hour flashing.
2. Press and release D and the seconds on the time of day will begin to flash.
3. Press and release B to reset the seconds to zero provided they are below 30. If they are above 30, the seconds will reset and the minutes of the time of day will advance by one.
4. Press and release A to change from flashing seconds to flashing minutes/flashing hours/flashing day of the month/flashing month of the year/flashing day of the week. In each flashing mode, pressing and releasing B advances the value by one unit.
5. Press and release D to exit time setting mode.

Dell D410 Latitude won't boot up when connectd to docking station

That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.
