Question about Barebone Systems

1 Answer

I purchased a HP M537 and my original computer with windows me which was 7 years old and would not support the software, so I purchased a new Dell computer with windows vista, now I just needed a reasonably priced printer etc so I purchased your HP F380 and of course the new system will not support the installation. What to do? Please help, I have the all in one all set up and I don't believe the firm will let me return it?

When you have everything connected and are ready to access the old hard drive, right click in the drive and see if you get the run as administrator option, if you do, click on it and log in as the administrator of your machine, if you don't get that option, go to the control panel and security and disable the User Account Control, reboot and you should be able to access it. just be sure to turn it back on later.

I have a hp computer that we recently moved from one room to another..and now..i can not log into it.."it" keeps asking me for original password and there is no way i can locate it..i tried calling hp...

Try to log in using the account name administrator and no password.
If you cannot change the account name press CTRL+ ALT+DELETE two times then type administrator for the user name. Do not type a password in the password box just click OK and hope that who set up the computer did not select a password. If this works proceed to the next paragraph, if it did not restart your computer pressing the F8 key during the boot screen until you can select the safe mode.
When you get into windows select start then run. Type control userpasswords2, and then click OK. Select your user name which you forgot the password and select Reset Password. Type in a new password and select OK. You now have a new password for that account.

The Konica Minolta 7145 have two different companies that made the print controller. If you have an older KM 7145 then you need the old Peerless Legacy driver. It's not on KonicaMinolta's website. You can use HP 5Si driver, but you won't have and of the options (ie finisher, fax, lcc).

try uninstalling any software relating to the printer.
shutdown the computer. Remove any printer to computer cables. Re-boot ( startup ) the computer.
let it set itself up. then shutdown.
turn off the power to computer, put your printer cable back in, as if you were installing it for the first time.
the computer should have found new hardware ( your printer ) And ask for a driver. ensure your HP disk is in the drive, and ask to search Drive D:- Or E:- wherever your CD is located.
If it,s already got the latest drivers installed, i would,nt worry unless your printers not functioning correctly.
