My hp Pavillion dv6 laptop can no longer use Constant Guard which Comcast supplies. Also Quattro Pro quit working midstream. How do I fix it?

More then likely running System Tuneup replaced critical files that Comcast Constant Guard and Quattro Pro uses... I recommend doing the following three steps but only if you have the Original or backup copies of the installation disc/media for both applications: 1) uninstalling the Comcast Constant Guard application 2) then do a normal shutdown and reboot once it has rebooted 3) install the Comcast Constant Guard once that's done and successfully do the same three steps but for the Quattro Pro application

Need drivers

Hi brennandonal,

Open this link, and click on "Find a Driver" in the upper-right corner of the webpage:

The "Component Category" for your video card is "Desktop Graphics"

The "Product Line" is "Radeon 7xxx Series"

The "Product Model" is "Radeon 7000 Series"

Lastly, choose the operating system you're using; Win XP 32-bit, Win2k Pro, or WinME / 98, then click the green "View Results" button.

The next page that opens will provide a direct link where you can download the Catalyst Software Suite for your Radeon. BE SURE to read the Release Notes and the Installation Instructions BEFORE you begin the driver installation.

Keep in mind that Windows must reboot when changing drivers, so DO NOT try to delay the process. Windows deletes a LOT of old files during the reboot so that they won't conflict with the new driver files being installed. If you delay or interrupt the process, you could have an unbootable mess on your hands.

Best of luck with this; let us know how it turns out.

Error Message: F12=Network Service Boot

The BIOS may have reset to the default settings. Sounds like this was originally a workstation on a Corporate Domain Network. Access the BIOS and reset the boot order for CD first, then Hard Drive - you can even disable Network as a boot option. Power spike won't affect the Hard Drive contents, but it can reset a BIOS. Your win2000 should be intact.

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?

If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

your current graphics card settings is not set to the correct level to match your system, you can download ATI Catalyst software from this link:

after installing, you may have to restart your computer. when you restart, right click on the desktop and select (ATI catalyst), there you can adjust your graphic card features or you can use the recommended settings the software have adjusted for your graphic card by clicking on restore settings/defaults.

you should not encounter problems once you have installed the ATI software.
