Printing from netbook

Use a desktop computer to copy the contents of the bundled printer CD-ROM to a thumb drive. If a second computer with a CD-ROM drive is not available, go to your printer manufacturer's website and download the appropriate drivers to your netbook's hard drive. Specific instructions may vary depending on your manufacturer, so read and follow instructions provided on the website. Insert the thumb drive into your netbook. If you downloaded the drivers instead, follow the manufacturer's instructions for installation. Open the file browser and click on the USB drive. Click on "Install" or "Setup." Follow the on-screen instructions for driver and software installation. Connect your printer to your netbook using a USB cord. Some software setups will automatically recognize the printer and launch a setup wizard. If a setup wizard does not start automatically, on your task bar choose "Start" and then "Printers and Faxes." In the window that opens, double click on "Add Printer." Click "Next" in the printer wizard window. A new frame appears asking you for the type of printer that you would like to initialize. Choose "Local Printer" and click next if your printer is connect through the USB port. Choose "Network Printer" if you want to use a printer installed on your network. Click "Next." Click the name of the printer you are using in the list. Click "OK" Choose "Yes" when prompted to choose whether or not you want to use the printer as your default printer. Click "Next." Click "Finish." Hope it helps.

BOOTMGR is compressed press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Insert Microsoft Windows Vista Installation Disc.
Press any key when it says "Press any key to boot from CD".

After that you should see "Windows is loading files..."
KEEP pressing F8/F9(can't rmb which, just press both alternately) while
the progress bar loads..... Dun let go until you reach "Advanced boot
information" where you should see Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking,
Last Good known configuration etc...., just select Safe Mode with
Networking(or Safe Mode/Safe Mode with Command Prompt) and press Enter.
Wait for the files to load and there should be "Safe Mode" on 4 corners
of your monitor.

Just be patient and wait. A windows would soon pop up and says "Install
Windows". Don't worry, click next. Now at the bottom of this window, you
should see "Repair Windows". Click on it, and there are several options
available here. For this case, which is "Bootmgr is compressed.", CHOOSE
THE LAST OPTION - "Start Command Prompt".

OK type these things (Only works if you have Firefox, can't think of
anything else) below and follow closely:

When Command Prompt is started, type the command below first to ensure
that C Drive or whichever drive which contains all your system files is


X:System> (The string on the left is what appears on command prompt,
may differ on other computers.)

Now TYPE "C:" or "D:", depending on the hard disc volume you are





If you get this, very good, continue with the steps below.

Now Type:

CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox



C:>CDProgram FilesMozilla Firefox (Press ENTER)

C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox (<<<<< Result)

Now type "firefox".

wait for Firefox to launch now.
it doesn't matter if no internet is available.

Now on firefox, go to File > Open File

Double click "My Computer", and you should see your hard disc there,
but don't double click on the hard disc. Instead, click once on the hard
disc, RIGHT CLICK, and choose properties. AT THE BOTTOM, UNTICK, I
REPEAT, UNTICK THE BOX SAYING "Compress this drive to save space

Read-Only Box and Archive Box), UNTICK, I REPEAT, UNTICK the 3RD BOX
Which says "Compress contents to save disc space".

Click OK, Apply and close the folder/file properties.

Now close the box opened by firefox, close firefox, close command

Your computer should be able to start properly now smile.gif

Boot Manager is compressed
If by accident having compressed the entire boot partition, then Vista will display the following error:
BOOTMGR is compressed. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
Check points for fixing compressed boot-manager:
* Boot into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and perform a “Startup Repair”.
* If the above doesn’t solve the problem then boot into WinRE again, but when selecting the Vista-installation, then press “Load Drivers” (Instead of “Next”) and use the mini Windows Explorer to right-click the boot-drive and deselect “Compress this Drive” and choose Apply to sub-folders and files.
* If that also fails then boot into WinRE again, and go to the “Command Prompt” and execute these commands:
o compact /U C:ootmgr
o compact /U C: tldr

I have certain text on a CD disk that I would like to edit. Computer tells me when I try, that it is "read only". How do I change mode to "read/write" to permit editing?

CD's are normally "read only", so the edited files cannot be saved back to the same CD.

You need to copy the documents you want to edit to your PC, edit, then save them to the PC. At some point, you may want to create a new CD with the edited files.

Put the CD in the computer, open up "My Computer". Double click on the CD (probably the "D:" drive) and right click on the file you want to edit, and choose "Copy".

Now go to "My Documents" on your computer (you can use the Start button to find it), and open that folder.

Right click again, and choose Paste.

Doubleclick the newly pasted file, and Word will allow you to edit and save it. You might want to use "Save As" instead of "Save" and give it a different name. So, Doc1.doc becomes Doc1a.doc or something similar.

There are other ways to do this - I'm giving you the most basic method.

Opening of drives

I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
.... or many others.

It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

To resolve the issue do the following:
1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.
