Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

No internet connection

I have a Dell Dimension 4550, cleaned up a virus and then a bunch of old programs and after everything was working fast and normal again, I discoverd the internet connection was lost, I narrowed it down to the Broadcom ethernet connection, in the control panel, the icon is still there, but it says there's no device listed, or drivers and it's not in the Device manager either, I can't unplug this model because it's directly on the motherboard, what can I do to get this up and working again?

If you have access to another printer with an internet connection, go to this site:

Enter the service tag for the system and then download the broadcom network driver to a USB Drive or CD and then take it to the Dimension 4550 and reinstall the driver.

Printer 4550 Should I leave the power on 24 hrs

You can do of course, but just remember that the life of any electronic device equates to the amount of time it is on, so by leaving it on you are reducing its lifespan (maybe by only a tiny bit) and wasting energy.
If components are left on for a long time then there is a chance that they start to heat up, and heat eventually means failure for circuitry.

When I try to type a correspondence on my new Dell computer, the beginning letter of the first word of every line on the page is capatilized. In order to make the typing accurate, I have to go back to the...

What program are you using as the word processor? Do you hit enter at the end of each line? This sounds like a problem with Word and the auto-correct feature combined with hitting enter at the end of the line. The enter gets Word to assume that you have started a new paragraph and you need to capitalize the letter. The Microsoft Works editing program works very similarly.

1) You can turn off autocorrection. Depending on the version of Word (2007, 2010) it may be in slightly different places. Look in Tools for AutoCorrect Options. There are various choices available. Turn off AutoFormat as you type or the entire autocorrection feature.

2) Just keep typing and let the word processor wrap the line for you until the next time you need to start a new paragraph. This is the WordWrap feature available in most of the better word processors. You may be able to turn this on and off easily depending on the word processor. (Text editors work more like typewriters and won't do this. Windows comes with Notepad for the most basic editor.)

WordPad will let you let you turn on and off the WordWrap under View. WordPad is a basic Word Processor in Windows and will act as a Word file Viewer at the same time.)

I hope this helps.

Other gurus might correct me, but I don't think this can easily be done. You are dealing with "parallel" data with the HP and "serial" data with the PC. If your HP has cards you can change, then conversion to serial data is relatively simple, otherwise...

I can not print when I connect to my jetdirect print server.

Hi, sorry for late answer, I have been offline for a while.

Connect RJ45 to router and parallel to computer
You need to download Software here first selecting 300x and windows version.
Then you can use the HP JetDirect Wireless Setup Wizard
to setup your printer on network.
You may also be required to install printer drivers, to do this use printer CD or download them from the Internet.

The direction of the GMFPSU01C will never tell you that you need to create another printer driver. Because, once you install the MFP Utility of this print server, you will have an automatic Copy1 icon of your printer once you successfully, detected the print server and once you successfully connected to the Printer.

Since, the computer is not detected the printer on the network, here are the things that you may do:

1. Make sure that the printer driver is properly installed in the computer. and make sure that the printer is working when directly connected to the computer.

2. If you can't detect the printer, disable your FireWall or any anti-virus program that's running in your computer.

3. Uninstall/reinstall the MFP Utility. If the CD is not working correctly, use the driver from the Website. Here's the link:
