Why does my printer only print half of a page?


Let's start by trying this:
Unplug the printer power cord from the printer and the wall.
Turn off the PC.
Disconnect the USB cable from both ends.
Plug the printer back in and turn it on.
Now, can you print a self-test page from the printer?
Make sure there is unused, plain white paper loaded in the input tray.
On the product control panel, press and hold the Power button and the Cancel (X) button at the same time.
Release both buttons. The diagnostic page prints.
If that does not work, are there any blinking lights on the printer? This document might explain them: Blinking lights.
If the self-test page does print normally, reconnect the USB cable, turn the PC back on and try to print a Windows test page:
Click the Windows icon and then click Control Panel . The Control Panel opens in a new window.
Click Hardware and Sounds .
Click Printers . The Printers folder opens.
Right-click the printer icon in the Printers folder.
Click Properties . The printer Properties window opens.
In the General tab, click Print Test Page . The Windows Printer Test Page prints.
If you have problems printing from Windows, you can try some of the troubleshooting steps in this document:
Printer Prints Blank Paper.
Finally, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the print driver.

Black background web pages


Step 1:
Web Pages That Do Not Display All Colors

Web pages that do not display all the appropriate colors have either a browser-related issue, monitor display problem, Windows comparability glitch or incorrect web pages Internet and HTML settings. More than likely, a setting dealing with your contrast ratio in Windows is the culprit. Once this issue is resolved, your web pages will display properly and accurately like they were designed to from the start.

Click on "Start" and navigate to the right pane and click on the "Control Panel." Click on "Ease of Access." Click on "Ease of Access Center." Click on "Set Up High Contrast" (one white and black box overlapping each other.) Check or uncheck "Turn on or off High Contrast when left ALT + left SHIFT + PRINT SCREEN." Click on "Apply" and close the Ease of Access Center. Press "ALT + left SHIFT + PRINT SCREEN" to turn on high contrast. Open your browser and go to a website to determine if color is restored to normal.

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

My router will not connect the power light keeps blinking


Check this tip out from Linksys. It is for a G VPN Router but you could use the same steps to troubleshoot. Title: Resolving Blinking Power or Diag LED on a Linksys Wireless-G VPN Router Article ID: 4982 If the Power LED on your Linksys router is blinking, this means the device is not ready. It should go off once the router completes its diagnostic test. If the Power LED won?t go off, it indicates that there?s a possible hardware problem with the router. To resolve this, you will need to perform five steps: Resetting the Router Assigning Static IP to the Computer Pinging the Router Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page Updating the Router?s Firmware For instructions on how to reset the router, follow the steps below. Resetting the Router Hold in the RESET button at the back of the router for 30 seconds. Unplug the power to the router then plug it back in. If after resetting the router and the Power LED is still blinking, try resetting the router again for another 30 seconds. Then proceed with assigning a static IP address on the PC. For instructions, follow the steps below. Assigning a Static IP Address on Your Computer Most of the time, if the power LED on the router is blinking it loses its ability to assign IP addresses to the PCs connected to it, which is why you need to assign the computer a static IP address. After assigning a static IP address on the computer, check if the computer is still communicating to the router by performing a ping test. To ping the router, follow the steps below. Pinging the Router Ping test helps trace the communication between the computer and the router. The computer sends packets to the router and in return the router sends out replies to validate the connection. In this example, our router IP address is 192.168.1.1. NOTE: If you?re using Windows 98 or ME, click here. Windows 2000/XP Step 1: Click Start, then Run. Step 2: When the Run window opens, type ?cmd? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. Windows 98/ME Step 1: Click Start, then Run. A window similar to Step 2 will appear. Step 2: When the Run window appears, type ?command? in the Open field, then click OK. Step 3: When the MS DOS Prompt appears, type ?ping 192.168.1.1? and press [Enter]. Step 4: Check the ping statistics. You should get Packets: Sent =4, Received =4, Lost = 0 (0% loss). NOTE: If you?re not getting good replies from the router, it means the router is not communicating properly with the computer anymore. You can already consider the device defective. If you get good responses from the router, access the router?s web-based setup page to see if a firmware update is possible. For instructions, follow the steps below. Accessing the Router?s Web-based Setup Page In order to perform a firmware update, you should be able to access the router?s web-based setup page. Updating the firmware is one way of resolving the blinking power light on the Linksys router. To access the router?s web-based setup page, click here. NOTE: If you?re having difficulties accessing the router?s web-based setup page, the router is considered defective. If you?re able to access the router?s web-based setup page, proceed in updating the firmware upgrade.

Laptop wont open web pages


Also, you may try the following:

First, let's try to find if you get to Internet at all.

Click on START and then RUN. In the small window, type cmd and then click OK or press ENTER.
A DOS window wil open and you'll see a blinking cursor.

Type:
ping www.google.com and press ENTER
you should get 4 lines with something like
'Reply from 208.69.32.231: bytes=32 time=90 TTL=52'

If you get
'Reply from 208.69.32.231 time out, it is NOT good.
Then try this:
Type
ping 208.69.32.231 and press ENTER.

Did something change?

Leave this (DOS) window open.


Open START, then Control Panel and then Internet Options.
Click on Second Tab, SECURITY.
You will see 4 icons. All of them should be set to Default Level.
If they are not, set them on Default Level selecting one by one.
(If you are using IE7, than you can click on
'Reset all zones to default level')
Now, go to ADVANCED Tab and click on
'Restore advanced settings'.

Click APPLY and then OK.

Now, go back to DOS window and repeat the 'ping' commands.

Any changes ?

D-link setup problem


The light internet must be solid, but the light of "activity" will be blinking according of your activity
If you can not get connection, check your settings.


When entering the IP address of the D-Link modem (192.168.1.1 for example), you are not connecting to a website on the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself.

Note: Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility.

Here are a a few steps to try if you are unable to access the web-based configuration utility:

1. Make sure you have an updated Java-enabled web browser.
We recommend the following:
• Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
• Netscape 8 or higher
• Mozilla 1.7.1 (5.0) or higher
• Opera 8.5 or higher
• Safari 1. or higher (with Java 1.3.1 or higher)
• Camino 0.8.4 or higher
• Firefox 1.5 or higher

2. Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on.

3. Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows® XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages.

Note: Check the help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it.

4. Configure your Internet settings using the following steps:

Step 1 Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel.

Step 2 Double-click the Network and Internet Connections Icon.



Step 3 Click on the Internet Options Icon.



Step 4 From the Security tab, click the Default Level button to restore the settings to their defaults.



Step 5 Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection.



Step 6 Click the LAN Settings button. Make sure nothing is checked. Click OK.



Step 7 Go to the Advanced tab and click the Restore Defaults button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK.



Step 8 Close your web browser (if open) and open it.

Step 9 Access the web management. Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link modem in the address bar. This should open the login page for your the web management.

Step 10 If you still cannot access the configuration, unplug the power to the modem for 10 seconds and plug back in. Wait about 30 seconds and try accessing the configuration. If you have multiple computers, try connecting using a different computer.
