I have a gateway desktop model DX4380G . was doing a computer reset and the computer turned off and will not turn on again . Any advice ?


Simple things that you can try first. Unplug everything to it except the power cord. Then making sure that you are plug in to a outlet that is working try it again. If it powers up then you know that something that is plug into it has failed. If you still have no power then it is something physical in the computer.

My printer won't print due to the fact that the troubleshoot says I'm not connected to a computer....but I am. How do I download a new driver to make it work. thanx


Hello Sir, Hi, that is common error with printers today, but this error can be fixed, here are some of the thing you need to do, they may help.
for usb interface. 1. If you are using a USB interface, you need to install first the driver software, along the setup, you will be prompted to power on the printer and plug in the USB cable to your computer and the printer. make your connection here. If the connection fails, do this several times. 2. If the 1. fails try using another USB port.
for centronics parallel printer cable. 1. Make the connection of the printer to the computer before installing the driver software. 2. Power on the printer. 3. Power on the computer and install the driver CD.
If you do not have the driver cd and you did not mention what printer you have. do a Google search, type the printer make and model and search for the driver. download the driver, usually from the manufacturer's website.

When i try start u my pc i get this error ''a problem had detected and windows had been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.'' Technical information: *** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203,...


Hi it looks like you have something preventing windows from starting up

Try the following

1) Remove all peripherals you may have attached i.e. printers, fax machines etc etc

2) if it still fails then remove the 3 pin lead from the back of the Tower/PC and press and hold in the power button for 20 seconds (yes i know there is no power going to it)

If all else fails then im afraid your looking at a system restore

If this answer has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote

One beep at startup - System does not bootup


You have what sounds like a RAM problem. Try known good RAM as a test. If it still fails, remove add on cards except video. Make sure that video card works. If it still fails to boot. Replace motherboard.

I have a Lexmark Z605 and when i try to print something it doesn't work. How can i make it work?


Have u tried making sure there is communication between the computer and the printer? You can do this by, making sure the printer is connected to the computer via the USB cable it should've came with. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the drivers. If it still doesn't work, respond to this solution, because I have something else in mind that may fix it.

Just installed 3in 1 lexmark 3600-4600series to computer everything checked okay but does not print foom computer comand was told by lexmark texpert it points to spooler files needing updated please help...


What a mess of a question! Absolutely run some updates on your OS, look in your Administrative Tools for logs about spooling and printing, and make sure those Lexmark drivers are also the latest versions (from the web, not the CD that shipped with the printer.) Your computer is pretty irrelevant unless the error relates to something unique about it; a correct problem classification would be all about your model of Lexmark, would it not? And in particular, the way Windows XP printing fails in the manner of pretending to pass something along to print, with whatever Lexmark settings you select, but nothing comes out even when you select the device from the Start menu under Printers and FAXes, even if you set the printer to Use Printer Online, right? All clear then.

Make sure the printer is not connected before it asks, before you try again be sure that every thing relevant to the printer is deleted including from program files, once all deleted restart pc then try again.
