Hi there

sounds like you'll need to uninstall the printer first and install an up to date driver from
then select your OS XP and hopefully that'll solve the problem if not the printer itself must be faulty

hope this helps

Re-installed XP sp3 and mic won't work Aspire E500

double click on the little speaker icon next to the clock at the bottom right corner of the screen and open the "mixer" and see if it is checked or muted, did you load the device driver for your audio device? if no, go to acer web site and get the drivers.

Not printing from computer, but printer works when I'm just making a copy


start, control panel, select view classic settings(if you cannot see a printer icon), double click the printer icon, set your current printer as the default from the list. your printer must be plugged into the computer for this to work.

also, depending on the model number, you didn't say, you should download the driver and program package from the website for your model number, if you do not have the disc that came with it anymore. there are drivers you need for everything to function properly.

We had to change the power box on our pc last one started to smoke due to fan dying, after getting everything back working we have no sound except the normal beep. the computer will not recognise a sound...

Speaker (right speaker) wire to GREEN socket. Open your device manager and see if any sound component is registering a splat...yellow ! Is the light on the speaker. Open sound and see that no X is in the mute box. Make sure the volume in turned up on the speaker and the computer. If all that is cool...reinstall the sound drivers for your computer. I don't mean to belittle you but its the little things that are missed can mess you up for hours-and man does it give one a red face. good luck , hope something here helps

I just want to reset everything

if you mean you want to reset everything then i'm going to assume that you want to reformate your pc. And as far as your icons go i'm going to assume that your talking about your My Computer and My Documents icons and if you want thouse on your desk top do the following:

Right click the taskbar and go to properties
Next click the start menu tab
Choose classic start menu and your icons should appear on the desktop

But this is only my assumtion as to what you mean, as Fusiondc said please elaborate a little more so i can help you out with this ;)
