Good Day, bought Perfect Business Publisher some time last year and it's a great tool to have. Unfortunately my PC crashed and I had to buy a new pc. I bought a laptop instead, I tried to install the cd...

You didn't bother to mention your operating system, a significant omission. When you look at the link advertising the product which I am including, notice that the versions of Windows which this purportedly runs under stops at Windows Me. As that ad makes no claim that it runs on an OS higher than Me, it is pretty much a gamble and let the buyer beware.

A lot of perfectly fine products get hammered in customer feedback sections simply because some people seem to spend their time trying to kill good reviews. That said, I encounter a lot of complaints about a lack of any customer support at all related to this product. That may be a misperception because one party claimed he was sent a substitute product which also did not work on his computer. So, someone obviously gave a go at trying to satisfy a customer --they just did not provide technical support. That you have the program but have not mentioned trying to contact their technical support is a bit telling.

If you found the programs ran under XP but does not under Windows 7, you either have to run it on an XP system or acquire a version of Windows 7 that supports XP mode and then run the program under XP Mode. You could try running the program in XP compatibility mode on Windows 7 Home Premium and see what happens if you don't have a version with an official XP mode option. I would also run any installation file "as administrator."

When you try to find support for it, you encounter Cosmi and Valuesoft. You can try emailing their support but I am forewarning you that you are likely on your own. I think you have an operating system compatibility problem. If I am wrong, I likely have provided more assistance than the support line. You might comment on how much support they provided.

Is there any Car Insurers who let you use your no claims from a bike towards your car quote?

Basically the answer is no, But, a friend of mine did this a couple of years ago, he had about six years on his bike insurance and when he came to get a car, he told them about the bike insurance and they took it into consideration and gave him a discount. Possibly: You'll need to check with individual insurers. I would suggest getting quotes without any NCB and then phoning the company of your choice & asking if there would be any discount for your year's claim free riding.

My computer is an Acer aspire x3200 but about a year ago i downloaded ubuntu and used it for 3 months then parents wanted window vista back we didnt know how to do it so my mom gave computer to her friend...

Sounds like "her friend" formatted the hard drive when he fixed it, which deleted the recovery partition. He/she ran fdisk and deleted all the partitions to max disk space.

I've come close to doing this before myself when I haven't paid close attention. Not all computers have a recovery partitions.

But I'd avoid Vista at all costs. Windows 7 is something you can get dirt cheap now (Craigslist) and it's much better.

He/she probably only had the 32-bit version, which is lame if you have more than 4GB of Ram.

This is really a simple fix for someone that has a copy of windows 7 and a valid ***********.

If you really want it like it was, I'm sure Acer will sell you a recovery DVD that you can just drop in your DVD drive and boot to it. But again, Vista stinks compared to Win 7.

My mom passed away last year and we are trying to sell her 1997 XJ6 Jaguar as we cannot afford to keep up with the repairs as they come. We sent the car to Jaguar due to the engine being frozen from...

I don;t know the exact answer, but $3000 to fix an air bag sounds preposterous. I don't know where live, but if you in California, as far as I know, the only test a car has to pass is the smog test.
Second, I have been able to turn off some red lights (the engine) by using a $50 computer diagnositic meeter, which fits under the dash and any body who can plug in a lamp can use. Some red light messages are errors. If the car has not been wrecked or crashed then it would seem to be that air bag is still there and intact.
Also, you can see the car as is for a little less, approximately $3,500. I just bought one in perfect running order with only 82,000 miles on for $4,000 in CA. I bought one last year for $5000 that 120,000 miles on it.
You can advertise on Craigslist and autotrader. From 1995 to 1997 XJ6 are supposed to be the best year of Jaguars.

System has crashed and the serial no has worn off the bottom of my laptop , i can access the drive on another pc but can i recover my serial from this ?


if you click on this link it should take you to a freeware software which you should be able to boot up with

This is said to work on vista and windows 7 as well

so i guess you need to put the hard drive back in crashed system and boot up with it

i havent tried this one myself and you will have to follow instructions or read up how to burn this to disk

when you say system is crashed have you tried booting up with F8 or F5 with repair options
or back to last know good configuration at all ????

Most Compaq computers come with a ONE-YEAR WARRANTY.
So, contact Compaq, since your computer is less than one year old, and get them to trouble-shoot the problem, and/or repair/replace the computer, by exercising your warranty.

I bought our daughter an HP laptop computer for Christmas year before last. We have taken that computer back to Best Buy so much they know us by name. They claim they have even sent it back to HP twice...

Is it still under warranty?

Would suggest calling HP Customer Support at 1-800-HP INVENT to see what they can do. They will be able to look up the repairs based on the serial # of the laptop.

Most replacements are only offered after 3rd time the same part is replaced.

You could also try Best Buy customer service at 1-888-237-8289.

Hope this helps.
