Hi jmc66884,

Are you getting the user account control prompt? if your printer came in with the setup CD that is compatible with Vista just right click the setup.exe that you can browse inside the CD and choose run as administrator, I believe by trying that process your installation should progress.

hope this solve your printer installation problem.

I forgot my Administrator Password,cuz I haven't had to use it for over a yr.It would just let me Login without it,but when I added a User Account---it started asking for it.Acer sent me 3 Disks.A System...


Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista. If there is another user account with administrator privileges you can log in at this account, and go through settings - control panel - user accounts in order to change the administrator's password.
If there isn't another user account with administrator privileges, you have to download the utility (in zip format) from this link. Extract it and burn the included iso at a cd. Boot the pc from the cd and follow the on screen steps in order to reset password.

I have recently purchased an acer tower which has windows vista and my lexmark 5200 printer series won't connect, help me please


vista does not work with vista compatible stuff. lol. just make sure u have the right driver and best place to find one is manufacturer site. it will tell you ether 64 bit or 32 bit vista drivers. make sure u first remove old ones so there is no compatibility issue. if it shows 86x it is same as 32bit. good luck.

My samsung till won't talk to my lap top


Windows Vista is the last operating system that you would want to use for legacy hardware -legacy being anything that requires a usb to rs 232c adaptor. Scripts required to make this work would drive you to an abacus. If you need to have a cash register input on a permanent basis I would recommend another operating system, even a real old computer would be easier to interface or you could use the modem output of the Samsung to connect to your laptop in a LAN configuration maybe even with a null modem connection. Vista will drive you crazy with permission denials with cries of cyber-sodomy with an analog interface directly connected. The Samsung 755 has a USB interface but since you don't have the correct input for your laptop it will be far easier to use the cash register an an old (cheap) computer with an RS 232 interface and connect it to your laptop with a wired or wireless LAN configuration. Those USB to DB9 0r DB25 or PS2 adaptors still cannot match the speed parameters that the laptop US Host controller would ever find acceptable. Windows XP or 2000 might be a consideration but Vista is already neurotic enough without interfaces it was not designed to accomodate. I hope this will save you from alot of frustration. respectfully, Steve Medley

I just purchased a compaq notebook lap top i locked it and now dont know how to unlock it Help !!!!


Hi lenise,

Have you locked your laptop through the user account or from the BIOS password protection?

Which operating system is this? XP or Vista?

If its the user account, then is it the administrator?
If yes, then you can change the admin password with a security hole in XP ( Windows installation disk would be required).

Visit the following link on how to do it!

If you really want to format it and wipe everything then you will need a copy of Windows Vista to boot up from, but if I were you I would give Vista the elbow and buy XP instead.
