    Sorry for the lack of info.



    It's a Compaq C300 laptop, to a LG LCD TV which has VGA input.



    Thank you.

    There are a couple of variations of the Compaq C300 on their website. I looked at one of them and it appears to have a VGA output (like all laptops) as well as an S-Video output. You've already said your TV has a VGA input so you can definately go that route, or you can use the S-Video cable. The S-Video cable will probably be a bit less expensive, although you can find VGA cables on the web for a reasonable price. I believe you'll need a male to male VGA cable, but you should check the connector on your TV if you decide to use the VGA. Remember, if you want to hear audio through the TV, you'll need audio cables too. The VGA and S-Video are only for video. For audio you'll have to use the headphone jack on the computer so you'll need a cable with a standard headphone jack on one end and you'll need male composite connectors on the other end. You probably won't fine one cable that will give you what you're after for audio, but you can buy a few pieces and put them together easily. You should be able to locate everything you need at Radioshack or BestBuy.



    Pay attention when you plug the audio into the TV that you're on the right connectors. Typically each video input has a seperate audio input. If you put the audio cables on the wrong connectors you won't hear anything...



    Lastly, once this is all hooked up you'll need to enable the correct video output on the Compaq. According to the Compaq manual you can switch between video devices by using the fn+f4 keys. If you have the manual for the computer, see chapter 5 (multimedia) for addtional instructions.



    Best of luck. If you get stuck or have more questions, just ask.

    You're not giving anybody much to go on here...



    What kind of laptop is it? It may or may not have an output that will connect to any type of TV.



    What kind of TV are you trying to connect to? Some TV's have VGA input's, most dont.



    If your computer does not have the right type of output there are boxes you can buy, but I've never used one.

It sounds like it's either at the age where the batteries need to be replaced or there is a problem with a component 'Capacitor or transistor' on it.
Is it still under warranty. If not - if you pull the batteries out of it you may be able to find some replacement ones on line. Place the part # of the battery in a search engine.
A Good place to try is CyberPower's website also.

Installation for canon pixma ip 1500


Hey you again, you rated me yesterday Inappropriate. Actually, fixya expert afraid to give some solution because you will rated us Inappropriate even the problem is came from you where you was not clearly stated your problem.

Ok, but anyway I am still to help you, Is it the problem goes to the manual installation you need or the driver instead?

Printers used to be the bugbear of computer users. They were difficult to set up and ornery in operation. That's no longer the case and it's likely you'll have no problems getting your printer up and running. This is particularly the case if your printer comes packaged with your computer system or if you stick to well-known brands such as Hewlett-Packard, Epson, Lexmark and Canon.
Connecting a printer involves four steps:
  1. Unpacking your printer, removing any packaging material and installing the ink or toner cartridge. Refer to your printer's instructions to guide you.
  2. Connecting the printer cable to the printer and to the back of your computer.
  3. Connecting the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  4. Installing the printer driver and any additional software. The printer driver is a piece of software that tells your computer how to interact with your printer.
If your printer comes as part of your system, you may find that its driver is already installed. In that case, all you'll need to do is unpack it, connect the printer cable and power cord and switch on your computer.
geekgirl.tip: Get a cable One word of warning: Make sure you purchase a printer cable! Often, this is not included in your computer system, despite it being an essential item. You'll need the correct type of cable for your printer: If it's a USB-enabled printer, you need a USB cable (note, the new USB 2 cables work with older USB 1 printers, too; so if in doubt, get a USB 2 cable); if it's a parallel printer, you'll need a parallel cable.
Make sure you get a cable long enough to reach easily from your printer to your computer. However, you should avoid cables longer than 10', because long cables can cause problems with communication between printer and computer. Try to position your printer so a 6' (or shorter) cable can make the connection.
Follow the wizard If your printer's software has not been pre-installed, read any installation instructions that accompany your printer and follow those instructions. If no instructions are provided, follow this procedure:
(Note: This procedure applies to printers which use a parallel connection. If your printer uses a USB connection, you should connect it while Windows is running and it will be recognised.)
  1. Make sure you have your original Windows CD-ROM handy. You may need it.
  2. Switch the computer off.
  3. Connect the parallel printer cable to your computer.
  4. Connect the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  5. Switch on the printer and the computer.
  6. In most cases, Windows will detect that you've attached a new hardware device and it will launch the Add Hardware Wizard and attempt to search for the appropriate software. If the wizard doesn't launch and Windows appears to ignore your printer, you can launch the Add Printer wizard yourself by clicking the Start button, selecting Control Panel, clicking Printers And Other Hardware, and then clicking Add Printer.
  7. If the printer is directly connected to your computer, select the Local Printer Attached To This Computer option. If you will be connecting to the printer via a network connection, select the Network Printer option, then click Next.
  8. The wizard will first try to search for any Plug and Play devices (these are components that should, by rights, automatically notify Windows when they're first connected). If the wizard discovers your printer, it will display further instructions to complete the installation. You may need to restart your system to finish.

Power issue?


Hi, More often than not, it is the internal battery of the UPS that causes switching off. In some instances it may be that too many devices are attached and drawing power from the UPS. In rare instances, it is the electronics controller that is at fault. 1. Since checking the battery involves opening the unit, you may be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional (there are dangerous voltages inside the unit even when off); 2. Try removing some of the devices connected to the UPS and simply leave the PC itself connected to the UPS. All others may be plugged in to the mains; 3. Checking if it's the electronics would be similar to # 1. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
