    Are you talking about downloading from websites? What browser are you using? Firefox? Internet explore? What operating system do you have? Vista, XP, etc?

Cant download mxit

Before you do anything, you will need to download yourself a copy of Mpowerplayer, which is a java virtual machine. Mpowerplayer will allow you to mount a java file and run MXit. You can get Mpowerplayer by clicking here.

Once you have download and installed Mpowerplayer, you will need to get yourself a copy of MXit. You can do this by clicking here firstly, this will take you to the MXit WAP site. Follow the sets below to get yourself MXit:
1. Choose your language.
2. Click on 'Choose phone'.
3. Select your phone make and click accept.
4. Select your phone model and click accept.
5. Select your country and click accept.
6. Select your region, and type in the image code.
7. Click on the 'Normal' link.

This will now download a .jad file to your computer. Make sure you choose a good place to download it to, so you can easily find it once it's downloaded. Once the file is downloaded, which should only take a few seconds, launch Mpowerplayer.


Once Mpowerplayer is open, click on File at the top left of the program, and select 'Open..'. Locate the .jad file you downloaded and open it. This will load MXit in the Java Emulater (Mpowerplayer). From this point on, everything is exactly the same!

My computer is telling me i need a graphics card can u tell me where i need to put it

Are you sure your pc is not asking for a DRIVER for your current video card?
If you see anything on screen, you have a video card.
Unless you have installed some game or graphics intense program, and it is stating you need a better graphics card, I'd say you just need to reinstall the driver for your current card.
Go to dells support website:
put in the service tag of your computer (on a label on the case or base of your computer.
confirm your model
under "Refine your results",
select your operating system,
then select video from the category list
you should then have a list of related drivers, each with a download button next to it.
Your model dell may have several different video cards available, you may need to download and try more than one.
once you have chosen the most likely driver, click on the download button next to it, then in the next window select download underneath the "download via your internet browser"
when you get the file download warning box, click save, and save it to the desktop.
Once it is complete, open it, or go to the desktop and open it, ie double click it and follow the instructions. after that you should be prompted to reboot your computer. either way, once its finished, reboot your computer and your graphics card driver should be installed correctly.
Hope this helps.
If you need help or get stuck, let me know, but please also supply the service tag of your system, and the exact message you're getting regarding the graphics card.

hope this helps.
once you have downloaded it

HP Solution Center hasn't appeared on my laptop

Hi, If you have downloaded the software for your printer from its manufacturer's website, then its okay, otherwise I will recommend you to download the drive once again from the link provided below.
Once you have the required software, run it once again because we need to remove the installed printer along with all its associated software from computer. So follow the HP setup wizard and uninstall the printer and restart the computer as asked at the end of the uninstallation process. Now when your computer is up and running, keep your computer detached from your computer and run the installation process once again with the downloaded HP software. Follow the wizard once again and install entire software. This time you will be able to use the HP Solution Center. The essence of the whole story is that HP software must be uninstalled and reinstalled using its own software otherwise there are chances when some of the key feature will now work.
Alternatively you can open mspaint.exe (Paintbrush) on your computer and click on File -> Scanner and camera -> select your printer and scanner model from the list and scan the document using it. You can then save the scanned image from the Paintbrush as well.

Can't get rid of lsas blaster. tryed everything.

If you haven't tried MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool, I suggest you download it on another computer and follow the below guide or you may stay infected.

Once you download the file on another computer, rename the file to something like "anything.exe" with the quotation marks. Now, transfer the file to a usb flashdrive. Take the flashdrive and attach it to the infected computer. Click on "My Computer" and find the flash drive and open it. Double click the drive and then double click the renamed MalwareBytes file. Install the program, let it update and then run the program. Perform a quick scan only, it may take a while so be patient. Once it finishes the scan, click on show results, it will post a list of infections that it finds. Once it posts the results, delete everything it finds. Reboot the system. Two other programs I would install are Avast Anti-Virus which is a free anti-Virus program and Threatfire which is a free utility that actively scans incoming web pages for threats and malware. Below are the links to the download pages.

Occasionally the keyboard locks up on our Dell Inspiron 1521. We know this because the NUMLOCK symbol lights when this occurs.. We can not disable the NUMLOCK and can not type anything. Have to reboot....

Go to the Dell website and go to downloads...then they will ask you what type and model of computer you have. Fill in all the information which some of the numbers that they will need will be on the tower either top or side or back...once you tell them the model you have they will even be able to help you with where to find that information. Once you get to the download page, look for any updates that relates to your key board and download them or anything else since this could be related to a virus. After you get the updates necessary for you computer...see if the problem goes probably will.

To find out how to download photos on my computer

The easiest method is to purchase a CF card reader. Once plugged into your computer you can remove the card from the camera and place it into the reader. A new drive will become available to the computer and you can then browse and copy image as if it was just another drive.

If you prefer to download directly off the camera you will need two things, a USB-A to Mini B cable(very common cable, try any electronics/computer store) and some drivers. The driver you require depends on what computer and operating system you use.(eg Macintosh/PC and Windows 2000/XP/Vista). Once you know this you can download the driver from the Canon website. They also have use manuals for you to download too if you wish to learn a little more about the camera.
