Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a friend (senior citizen-fixed income) has Gateway Model on back TBR3450 PIII with W98. She needs a new printer but all new ones require W2000,ME or XP. I'll do the XP update for her but want the original machine specs before I do that. Cannot find this machine listed in Gateway's site, but there is an identical one on e-bay. Can anyone point me to the place to get specs for this?

I have had a look on the net but no sign of it anywhere .
well as long as the machine has the minimum ram 256mbs and enough disc space for xp, around 1gb it should be ok,may be a bit slow though.
back up her data before updating and make sure she has the win98 o/s disc in case things don't work out.

good luck

Where is the printer port on my acer aspire 7551-2961?I did not get an user guide and am a lost senior citizen trying to communicate with my grandchild.MCV


Most printers now use the USB port instead of the older parallel ports that has several input/out pins. Some printers (new-out-of-the-box) do not come with the USB cable, therefore purchase one for your printer if it requires a USB cable. The computer should have more than one USB ports to plug into.

The blower fan on the air/heat unit quit blowing


List of possibilities:
blower motor
resistors
relay
on/off switch.

This is not the item to attempt to fix by yourself if your a senior citizen. Because of the location of these items this is a back breaking job.
Unless the shop you go to attends to its customers while wearing ski masks take the vehicle to them . This is not a fixed income reaper. Good luck.

I have not solved the problem, but I am a 72 yr. old Senior Citizen Widow on a fixed income and at this time I cannot afford to pay for any other plans.

I have two other TV's that I can watch and I can still use this TV without a remote.

Thank you for your help.

After 15 color copies voice comes on Color ink LOW, Senior Citizen


The ink cartridges shipped with a new printer are not filled to full capacity as are the ones that you purchase for replacement. Office supply stores "Staples" "Office Depot" etc can refill your cartridges for about half of the cost of a replacement cartridge, I do not reccomend refilling the same cartridge more than twice but even after the second fill you can then trade the cartridge in for a discount on a new one.
Hopefully this helps.
You can also open the printer settings and lower the print resolution for jobs that do not need full color/resolution.

Have a friend (senior citizen-fixed income) using Gateway TBR3450 PIII W98 and needs new Printer that will only work with W2000/ME/XP. I'll do the XP update for her but I want the original PC specs...


It's a while since I used Win 98, but as far as I remember, if you right-click the My Computer icon and select 'properties' the processor type, bus speed and memory info are listed on the General tab.

Go to the Hardware tab, click 'Device Manager' and from there you can find details of all the installed hardware.

Hope this helps,

Matt.
