Sometimes a third party firewall will block the microsoft website, even if you've not had a previous problem with it. If you are using a firewall, check the settings and blocked sites.

You may want to go to the microsoft update site:
and do a manual download and install. Just click on "express."

Another option would be to download and install Belarc Advisor:
Give it a few minutes to run and it will give you a run down on all your Microsoft updates, if any are missing. You can then go directly to microsoft and download the specific update that (if) Belarc determines is missing.

    Are you getting an error code and if so what is the number or message?

    Try going to the Microsoft update site, then click on "review your update history" in the left sidebar. There should be 8 or 10 pages to review. Do you see any red x's? If so, click on the red x to view the error message.

    Sometimes "bad" files get stuck in the IE temp. files and IE keeps trying to use them. Sometimes the same symptoms that you are describing is caused by this. It doesn't hurt to delete these files, and will, in fact, speed up IE. To clear your IE temp files. From IE click on "tools", then "internet options". Under "Browsing history", click "delete" Make sure "temporary internet files" is ticked, and untick anything that you _don't_ want deleted then click "delete". If you are using Firefox, the procedure is similar.

I want to know what ADOBE Flash Player I should download for my emachine so i can play games on Facebook

You can download Flash Player from Adobe here. Usually it's best just to download and install the latest version (10.3 now) since it will have all the latest features, enhancements, security fixes, etc. Click the link at the top of the page that says "Get the latest version" to get the installer program. Run the program and installation is automatic.

How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

Drivers of compaq presario CQ40 616tu

Original and updates to computer drivers can be downloaded from the PC manufacturer's website, usually in thier support area. Yours can be found here:

Driver Downloads - Compaq Presario CQ40-616tu

Follow the onscreen instructions from Compaq. You will be asked for your operating system then a list will be displayed of all possible drivers you may need.

If you're re-installing windows (and lost drivers), there is a particular order in which hardware drivers should be re-installed. Refer to your user manual - RESTORING TO FACTORY DEFAULT... REINSTALLING SYSTEM DRIVERS
If you were told you should update a driver for particular hardware (Video card, Audio, Touchpad, etc...), look for the latest version and select it. A detailed description of the update will show what had been "fixed" in that version, as well as it's importance. Read installation procedures under each driver's description before installing. Most will install automatically upon download completion.

If you need further assistance, describe more detail of your needs. Take Care :)
