If you have lost/misplaced the installation disk, you can install the printer by downloading the installation drivers and software from manufacturer's support website.

Please let us know the brand and complete model number of the printer so that we can provide you with the link to download the drivers.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a grey screen and apple on my iBook G4. No cd and I don;t know where to turn.

if you or a friend have another Mac, use it to start up the iBook in Firewire mode (hold the T key on the laptop when restarting). You can reinstall the operating system, or try to simply repair the disk with Disk Utility.

Did you try reinstalling your printer software and drivers? Go into control panel ->printers and delete the old one first, then reinstall everything from the disks that came with the printer.

Recovery disk sony vaio VGN-CR190

You'd be better served by just reinstalling the operating system because most times those recovery discs don't work.

Look at the bottom of your laptop or inside the battery case for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) Sticker. It will have what version of windows is installed on your laptop and it will give you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers). Borrow an Operating System Disk of that save version of windows from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and reinstall windows. It has to be the exact same version of windows or you will have problems activating it.

Also make sure you get the Product Key Code from the person you borrowed the disk from because when the system asks for it, sometimes it wants the one from the disk rather than the one that is on your laptop to activate the product.

My hp laptop with windows vista home premium is not booting and showing to insert bootable disk, which I don't i can get this

The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.

Everytime I try to logg in it says that the loggin system is not available at the moment, then a blue screen appears and it shuts at the moment I can only loggin in safe mode. I really need to use...

I've had this problem and It's frustrating but usually not too bad as long as you have your installation and or driver disks. If it's from before Windows 7 you should have one somewhere around but If it is Windows 7 you kinda had to make it yourself and I believe your only allowed to make one. Now if you don't, don't freak, you could get one from the company associated with your laptop,or windows directly (they should be free but you may have to pay shipping and handling), worst case get one from some tech store. They will charge you and arm, then bring it back saying it wasn't what you thought it was, your not reinstalling your OS (that would wipe your old stuff) your just doing a recovery.
Try reinstalling Drivers first.
First try using the Driver disk in safe mode or another regular start up way and fixing your drivers from in safe mode or regular start up or if that doesn't work try the following but with the Driver installation disk.
Step 1 of Startup Repair or a Systems Recovery.
Then on next boot put in the disk and press F12 (should be somewhere above the keyboard minus sign) on boot up as soon as you can.
Step 2 Now boot from disk instead of the "C:" drive and follow the instruction.
Step 3.1 Once pass the prompt asking you to install Windows Do not reinstall the OS
You should see this after... 66b9e3c2-bb67-47bf-802c-b753b54bcc19.jpg

Click Startup Repair first (don't worry if it take a hour (probably won't but you never know))
It should restart and work

Step 3.2 If not do Steps 1 and 2 again but in step three click Systems Recovery.
Now if that does not work contact me again (or if you don't mind and need it now you can reinstall and wipe everything A CHOICE I NEVER CONDONE)

Printer will not stop printing until it runs out of paper

Delete all printers, uninstall related drivers and printer software. I have uninstalled and deleted related folders (but don;'t delete from Recycle Bin in case you need to put them restore them). Boot up and Windows should reinstall correct drivers through the internet. Reinstall photo programs with disk that came with printer.

Reinstall software each time the printer is reconnected

hmmm...maybe the way to do this is to use the remove hardware icon in control panel, instead of simply disconnecting the printer from the laptop.

also, go to and get the newest drivers, which are almost certainly more recent vintage than those on the cd.
