My husband touched the carb settings on my sons new 2007 ttr 50. I read the manual to try and find the number of turns to return to stock settings. Can you please please help!

The carb mixture screw may add air or fuel, depending on the model. If the bike will idle it can be adjusted without knowing the factory setting. What you want is the highest idle that can be achieved using just the mixture screw, not the idle setting screw. Start the motor, then slowly turn the mixture screw in. If the idle speed increases, continue in that direction. If it slows and becomes rough, turn the screw back out until you reach the highest idle speed. That will the correct setting for the bike at your altitude.

Pls tell me how can i increase the speed of my reliance dial up modem

Modems will always negotiate the highest speed they can if set properly (usually default settings)
Dial-up is just really slow, and there's not much you can do except scrap the dial-up and move up to broadband.

Purchased cartridges for the HP all-in-one 4215xi printer and cannot install the cartridges. 1st I purchased the 56/57 tri-pack and couldn't get them in the printer. Went back and purchased 27/28...

Your printer takes the HP 56/57 cartridges. When you buy new cartridges you need to remove the black clip, then remove the strip of tape that covers the print head, then the cartridge can be installed in the printer.

Modem for dial-up

Well I hate to be the one to break the news but their is no such thing as a fast modem. They are all 56Kbps which is slow....the only fast modem is a DSL modem, but that is outside the computer and it gets hooked up with your phone company or your Internet Service Provider. Check the invoice or packaging slip and see if it says "DSL Modem capability"..if so then you are ok but your ISP has to install it.
