I hasve done all the simple trouble shooting turning htrem off and on, unpluging the power and firewire cords and rebooting the computer nothing seems to work. I can hear the disk spinning when the computer boots up but hrey do not mount on the desk top. They are connected to a mirror door G4 and have been working fine until now. Hope you can help Thanks Bob Black

Hi Bob,

This seems to be the most prolem with some of the harddisk now a days, try accessing the bios settings if the harddisk is detected by the system then the problem is from data cable (i.e. IDE Cable, SCSI or SATA Cable) which ever one you have as your connector try changing it see what will happen. And if the system is not seeing the harddisk from the bios settings this means the harddisk is not recognised by the bios which will not be display by the operating system. Try removing the cables (power and data cable) reconect them back again power on, access Bios, which is good to get connected. if not try resetting the bios to default set ide to auto detect.

Thanks

Hi Bob,

Just try resetting the BIOS and check if it works.

You need to access BIOS screen and most of the computers has F% key is assigned for Loading the Dedault Settings. After F5 key you need to press the F10 key to save the settings and exit from the BIOS.

Hope this helps!

Computer won't recognize driver


Turn the modem off. Disconnect the electrical power.
Reconnect the electrical power. Turn the modem on.
This "resets" the modem, and you should be good-to-go.

Or, telephone your Internet Service Provider's "Help Desk", and get them to trouble-shoot.

My 6210 does not want to scan and i have a new mac desk top how do i install the drivers on this computer so i can scan pictures


i have a mac too. when you plug in the usb to each the mac an HP, it should automatically set up configs. Check the printer manual to ensure the printer is compatible to each other. Or .. . .
install disk that came with All-in One. after install, restart computer. this should work now.

if not, go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings.
lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. hp has an awesome web site for trouble shooting. HP might have a program that you might have to download additionally.
hope this helps and good luck
