It sounds like the person who donated the PC wiped the HD clean, so that none of their previous data can be taken from the old HD.

And when they re-installed an operating system, they did not complete the installation. This means you must contact that person, find out which OS they installed on the HD, and get the boot diskette from that person.

The alternative is to have them do a full install of an OS, or you do it yourself. But you must use an OS for which you have a license.

Otherwise, you will have error messages pop up every step of the way, and you won't be able to use the PC without error messages every step of the way.

We gave a donated 1998 ford windstar van to a women in our church to help her, while she was driving it, it slowed to 30; Some oil on right side after setting.


Sounds like it has an oil leaks. It has slowed and won't go over a very slow speed? is that what you mean?, if so, then the computer has placed the vehicle into "Crawl" mode. This is designed to protect the vehicle from further damage to allow it to be taken to a repairer who will fix it. If it has an oil leak I'd suggest getting it towed as any further driving of the vehicle may do a lot more damage ... even in crawl mode.

Had a mfx-2830 donate to our church. Looks like it has a collator on it but see no option to select to collate. Any ideas?


The collate button is an electronic one on the LCD panel...not a separate button.
Now if the display is not registering the "finisher" / collator as being there then it is possible that something is wrong .. maybe the collator/finisher was physically installed onto the machine but maybe the electrical connectors were not plugged in. Ask the person/company that donated it if it was working.

I do not have a problem. I represent a church and the telescope has been given as a donation. We aer trying to find a value to sell it at a silent auction to raise money for our very tiny but active...


Hello,

Let me try to help you with your question.

Allot of people use ebays seller estimator when trying to present a value on a piece like this.

If the item is in good condition with not problems I have seen them on line for $150 roughly.

Silent actions you might get that amount or a little less in my opinion.

If the item is nearly new what they call mint condition the most you will get that I have seen is $175.

Here is some tips for you.

1. Check auction site like ebay or Yahoo!.
2. Study the description and try to compare it to your donated unit.
3. Set the bid about half the going price so you get most out of the donated item.


Thanks for using Fixya.com I hope this information was Very Helpful for you.

How to Format a Computer
Want to know how to format a computer hard drive? Need to learn how to format your computer and start with a clean slate? Formatting a disk prepares the surface of the drive to accept and store data. Computers are often formatted before they are sold, donated, or returned to an employer. Likewise, computers with viruses or errors can be formatted and returned to their "out of the box" settings.

Onboard bios disabled on Kt3 Ultra CE motherboard


all you have to do is reset the cmos, find the jumper and clear it, if you cant find the jumper then remove the motherboard battery for 10 mins (make sure the there is no power cord attached) that should reset the cmos, it also could be an old pc in which the bios doesn't support 64bit addressing, this means it will only recognise a hard drive of up to 40 gig, you could try a bois flash but i don't recomend it as you can kill the computer if something goes wrong
