SOURCE: Dell 964 scanner

I ahve the Dell All-in-One Photo 964 Printer. The software says it can't communicate with computer. But faxes and scans can be done manually on printer, the software is needed to drop scans into e-mail, files etc. It worked perfectly fine when I had Windows XP, I now have Windows Vista. I have the same problem above also when using it manually.

SOURCE: Not able to scan to pdf file with Brother MFC-240C

What you seem to want to do is not possible. Let me explain:
A file that has its data in the Adobe company Portable Document Format (or a pdf file) contains various objects that are described to the computer using a superset of the PostScript language, some of them can be images.

A file that comes from the scanner is first a very organized set of pixels and gets put into a more compact form by using a well known process as defined by the Joint Motion Picture Experts group. This is a roundabout way of saying that it has a format that isn't PDF.

What you CAN do:
a) open the jpeg file with a Macintosh, using the Print command from the file menu make a pdf file that has the image in it.

b) buy and install a PDF printer driver on a Windows machine, and then follow the same process as A above.

c) Use your favorite PDF creation program to make a file with the image embedded.

Purchased a new ThinkCenter desktop computer and my Logitech X-230 speakeers will not work with it. Help! Ken


Probably your problem is your PC audio device not your new speakers.

First verify you see a small sound icon sound3.gif or sound.jpg in the Systray (generally at the bottom right hand corner of your screen). If this icon is missing follow the below section.
Windows XP

  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Open the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon.
  3. Verify the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox is checked. If this option is not available or is grayed out, skip to the next section of this document.
  4. If you were able to check this box, click ok and close out of this window and the Control Panel.
  5. Double-click the sound icon in the Systray and verify that all the sound volumes are mid-way or higher.
Also looks like there are some corrupt system files on the computer I would suggest that you run SFC scan which would scan for corrupt system files on the computer and replace them.

Steps to perform SFC scan:
1. Click the Start button
2. From the Start Menu, Click All programs followed by Accessories
3. In the Accessories menu, Right Click on the Command Prompt option
4. From the drop down menu that appears, Click on the 'Run as administrator' option
5. If you have the User Account Control (UAC) enabled you will be asked for authorization prior to the command prompt opening. You may simply need to press the Continue button if you are the administrator or insert the administrator password etc.
6. In the Command Prompt window, type: sfc /scannow and then press Enter
7. A message will appear stating that 'the system scan will begin'
8. Be patient because the scan may take some time
9. If any files require replacing SFC will replace them. You may be asked to insert your Vista DVD for this process to continue
10. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"
11. After the scan has completed, Close the command prompt window restart the computer and check.
The scan may take some time, so be patient. Windows will repair any corrupted or missing files that it finds. If information from the installation CD is needed to repair the problem, you may be prompted to insert your Windows Vista / 7 installation disk.

How to install add/remove icon


Assumption you are using XP Operating System(OS).
You cannot install "add/Remove" icon to your system, because it is part of the OS.
For some reasons the add/remove programs option (appwiz.cpl) is corrupted has `gone missing` from the control panel? Your PC might be infected with Malwares or "Nasty Root-Kits".

Resolution
1. Download "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free version", install update and do a full scan and remove any of those "nasty files".
2. Download "SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition", install update and do a full scan and remove any of those "nasty files".
3. Do a virus scan too!

After the clean up, reboot your PC and see whether your 'Add/Remove' is there.

If you still can't see the "Add/Remove" icon,
then download the Registry file "28. Control Panel Icons are Missing" - download the registry file and add to your registry @ kellys-korner-xp.com.

Hope it helps.

    • Click the Windows icon c01319360.gif , click All Programs , click the HP folder, and then click HP Solution Center.

    2. For the HP Solution Center "button" that you are using ("Scan Picture" or "Scan Document"), set the option to prompt for settings each time you scan, and then click OK .

    • Scan to: Select your scan destination from the drop-down list.
    • File Type: Select the file type from the drop-down list.
    • ...Save Options...: (available only for certain "Scan to" destinations): For example, if you are saving to a file, click this option to select your Save Location .
    • Show preview...: Select this check box if you want to see a preview before the actual scan.
    Important : HP Solution Center software versions vary, depending on the age of your product, and whether you installed updated software after the initial setup. For specific instructions on all the settings the software offers, click the Help button on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.
  5. Click Scan . The preview screen might display, if you selected an option to show a preview. Use the options on the preview screen to make any desired adjustments before you complete the scan.
After the scan completes, it goes to the destination that you specified in the settings.

Hi,
The first step is to scan for spyware. These nasties can alter system files. Download MS Antispyware and Ad Aware and scan or spyware.

Also run a system file checker command to update any missing files Go to Start>Run>type "sfc /scannow" without quotes.
Note: it is advised to keep the original windows CD handy while prforming SFC \scannow as it tries to update the missing/ corrupt files.
