If you are using windows Vista or Windows 7 use Windows Easy Transfer and select the Option to save backups on a Flash Drives, CD/DVD or Network HDD. Once complete, install a fresh copy of windows and use Easy Transfer to Restore the files.

    No Problem, With Windows XP simply copy your user profiles, they can be found at
    C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\My Documents\My Music\ITunes\


    Simply Copy the folder to an External Drive and copy back once you have installed Itunes on to the newly installed O/S

How to download using IPad


I need more info to help you solve the problem. If you mean you don't know how to download photos and videos from computer to your iPad. Hope this help.
For photo, Plug your iPad into your computer, open the iPad folder go into pictures and all your photos are going to be there. Then minimize that on half the screen, open the photos in your library on your computer and minimize it to the other half if your screen. You can either drag on pic from you computer library to your iPad library; or you can right click on the photo you want, click copy, then place the cursor on the iPod library and right click again, and click paste.
For video, If your video is already mp4 video, you can import the mp4 video into iTunes at first. Connect your iPad to computer through USB cable, iTunes will recognize the iPad automatically, and then go to iTunes menu 'File -> Sync iPad', the video will be transferred to iPad.
If your video is not iPad compatible mp4 video, you can follow this step by step guide to convert and sync the video to your iPad, it's easy to understand and works pretty well for me.

How do you connect a ps3 to a computer


Set up your PS3
Step 1: Make sure your PS3 is connected to the same network (via Ethernet or wireless) as your computer. You can check your connection by going to Settings > Network Settings.
Step 2: Go to Settings > Network Settings > Media Server Connection on your PS3 and set it to "Enabled."


Set up your computer (PC)
Step 1: Download and install the latest version on Windows Media Player.
Step 2: Go to Library > Add to Library and add folders you want your PS3 to access. All personal folders (Photos, Videos, and Music) are selected by default, but if you have media in other folders, add them.
Step 3:. Go to Library > Media Sharing, and check "Share Media." Press "OK," then wait a few moments for your PS3 to show up as one of the devices. Then select it, click "Allow," then "OK."


OR


Set up your computer (Mac)
Step 1: Download and install PS3 Media Server (free). This will allow your PS3 to "see" your Mac.
Step 2: Connect to the same network as your PS3.
Step 3: Go to Navigation/Share Settings and uncheck everything in the Thumbnails section (at the top). Then, at the bottom, add folders you want your PS3 to access. You can choose to add your entire hard drive, but it's helpful to add shortcuts to folders like Music, Videos, and Pictures.
Step 4: Go to Transcoding Settings, and change the Maximum bandwidth to 14 or 15. If you have a very strong network connection, leave it at 0. If you don't have a 5.1 surround sound theater, go to the "Number of audio channels" settings and change it to "Stereo."
Step 5: At the top, hit "Save" and "Restart HTTP Connection."




Stream your media
Step 1: Go back to your PS3, and your computer's name will be listed under the Photos, Videos, or Music tabs. You need to be in the Music section on your PS3 to play music, in the Photos section to see photos, and in the Videos section to play videos. You cannot play copyrighted material.
Here are a few extra tips:
  • When viewing a photo, hit the b_triangle.gif button to view extra options, like starting a slideshow of images in the selected folder.
  • When listening to music, you can keep it playing in the background by hitting the PlayStation (home) button.
  • You can copy music, photos, and videos onto your PS3 hard drive. When viewing a file, hit the b_triangle.gif button and select "Copy."

Recovery disc for vista


Exactly what is the problem? Why would you want to to a recovery back to factory settings and lose all your documents, music, pictures, videos and programs you've loaded since you purchased the computer?
You could try using a system disc and try booting from it to fix your problem. Better yet you could try doing a system restore which preserves all your documents, music, pictures, videos and programs. If you can boot into safe mode try system restore. Again I would need to know what kind of error you're getting or why you want to do a recovery.

What is the HOTKEY for ASUS to reset to Factory default


Not sure what the HOT Key is for doing that but most likely it is one of the F1 thru F12 keys that you would press while booting. Sometimes the boot screen will tell you which key to press. Sometimes there will be a program listed under Start/Programs that will be identified as the System Recovery Manager that will start it. Why would you want to set your machine back to Factory Default? You'll lose all your documents, data, music, pictures, videos and any programs you've installed since your purchase of the computer. Consider doing a System Restore which preserves everything. Or consider using a system disc to repair whatever your problem is.

I am new to the computer world & need some help ? How do i transfer my pictures from my computer to a disc ? Thanks


This is for windows 7:
Click the Burn button.
  1. Open your Pictures library from the Start menu and select your desired photos.
  2. Select the photos and folders you want to copy by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking their icons. Or, to select all the photos within a folder, press Ctrl+A.
  3. Need to select photos from multiple folders? Don't select any photos or folders in this step. Proceed with the rest of the burn process and Windows 7 will open an empty window showing the newly inserted disc's contents: nothing. Drag and drop the photos you want to burn into that window. When you're ready, go back to the Pictures Library and click Burn.

  4. Insert a blank CD or DVD into your writable disc drive.

  5. Decide how you want to use the disc:

    1. Like a USB flash drive:

    2. Choose this option when you intend for other PCs to read the disc. Windows 7 treats the disc much like a folder, letting you copy additional photos to the disc later.
    3. With a CD/DVD player: Choose this option to create discs that play on CD and DVD players attached to TVs. Don't choose this unless you plan to view the disc on a TV. You can't add any images to this disc later, so be sure to get them all selected the first time.

  6. Type a name for your disc and click Next.

  7. Click the Burn or Burn to Disc button again, if necessary.

How to restore hp pavilion dv4000 to factory settings


The way to restore most PCs to factory settings is to reinstall Windows. First, MAKE SURE you have the Windows disc that came with your computer and the drivers/utilities disc that came with it.

To start restoring, put the Windows disc in that came with your computer, and run it. Find the option to install/reinstall Windows, and select it (you may have to boot from the disc, which can be done by changing the boot order in BIOS settings). Follow the instructions Windows Setup gives you.

After you're done with that, don't freak out if the sound, wireless, touchpad, etc. isn't working. Insert the drivers/utilities disc now and install all the drivers that are on it onto your laptop.

You are now done with the restore process!
