    So, instead of entering data in a database like MS Access, you want to write the data on a text file is it?

    Am I understanding it right?

    If so, I will be able to help you out on that!!

Yaa you can use the Setup Wizard from your VB for your project. It will make a setup for your project and will put all the runtime required files in a same folder, with your project executable with a setup.exe file. Copy all these files in any device like CD,DVD, Flash memo etc, in a same folder. And run this setup on any computer to which you want to install it.

Then your project will run on that computer.

Manual motherboard

Manufacturers only supply mainboard manuals when the mainboard is sold as a stand-alone part. This is so that the system builder can populate and setup the board according to specifications. Pre-built systems use mainboards that are specially designed for the PC manufacturer by the mainboard manufacturer. There is no manual associated with these builds. Some mainboards used in pre-built systems may be very similar to stand-alone models. In those cases, you may be able to use the stand-alone manual. But unless you know who made the mainboard for Lenovo (they did not), you won't find a manual for the mainboard specifically.

Burned cds not playing on other cd players

If the CD will play in your computer (and others) but not on stand alone players, the problem is most likely that you are not "closing" your CD's.
If you use a wizard to create your CD's it should ask you if you want to close the CD so that no more information can be written to it. If you create your CD's without using a wizard then there should be an option somewhere that will allow you to do this... depending on which software you use.
It is also possible that the format (music) is not compatible with your stand alone player.

I have 3 Sharp POS Terminal UP-3000 series, 1 being the master till and connected to the other two. How do I separate one of the tills from this system so that I can programme it as a stand alone?

This is normally a dealer function but you can do it if you have the dealer programming manual. Look on the bottom of the machine and find out the real model number If it is a UP3300, you need this one
If it is a UP3301, you need this one
There are settings tables in there for master or stand alone terminal

Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive

Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

Need to free up space on d drive

Dear Duchessjone, (if you are dutch i can also awnser you in Dutch ;) )

You can clean up your drives by first deleting/uninstalling all the programs that your wont use. (NEVER go randomly delete mode, just because of disk space. This might comprimise the drive)
Especially programms like computergames tend to ask a lot of your harddrive memory.

You can go to your D Drive by right clicking on the menu and then click explore. There click 'computer' and select your D Drive.

After unstalling/deleting files. Right click on the drive. Then click on properties. Select the tab Extra, from the properties menu. There you can defragmentate your drive.
This will fill up all the gaps created by the drive or created by deleting programms ( which we just did)
Filling up these gaps, will make the drive faster and gives more drive space!

I hope this information was all helpful to you.

With kind regards,

Reformat my computer to windows 7

Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

Pri hard disk S.M.A.R.T BAD wont boot up what do i do

his could be caused by a couple of problems but you are going to need access to a second computer to determine the problem.

1) You have a disk that is failing and it has had an error. Got to the disk makers site and down load their diagnostic program and check the disk. This is a stand alone CD so you don't need to boot into the OS. SMART failures almost always are failing disks.

Another program that can temporarily fix errors is This program will stop after fixing the first error unless you buy it. Again, this is a stand alone.

If it is a disk error, you need to quickly get your data off and install a new disk.

Don't have a second computer? then you need to take it to a local computer store where they can remove the disk, install it in a desktop and check it for errors.

2) This could be a virus, but I think #1 is your problem. has a free online virus scan if you can install the disk in a second computer.

Low on memory and speed

If you want to upgrade your memory in your system, assuming this system has Internet access, you should visit the following website I use this website myself and it's an excellent memory website. It has this free scanning utility which scans your system and it tells you how much memory you have installed in your system, it tells you what type of memory you have in your system and it also lets you know how much memory you can install in total. I have 2 gigabytes in my own system and I can upgrade to a maximum of 4 gigabytes in total.

After visiting this website and using the scanning tool you will know where you stand. You can purchase the compatible memory that you need from this website. It's always best to go for the maximum amount of memory that your system can support. Watch this video on youtube also regarding the installation of RAM or memory in your system. Good luck. Andrew

I need a recovery disk for my Vista OS preinstalled on Acer Aspire T180. Can I create it by myself? (Recently my system crashed and I had to a tecnichian for using his recovery disk)

You can use a hard drive imaging program such as Norton Ghost to create a recovery DVD(s). Norton Ghost is available as part of System Works or as a stand alone program. Power Quest's Drive Image is also an alternative, however it is too old to be compatible with Vista - you could do a Drive Image outside of Windows - booting off the Floppy.
