  1. After your inital setup of your PS3 your going to want to get online and play against some real people! So start out by going to your PS3 dashboard with all the menus.
  2. Go to the Icon on the left that says "Settings" and go down to "Network Settings"
  3. From here you can setup your internet connection automatically by letting the PS3 scan for Local Area Connections. I used a wireless set up.
  4. Once its done scanning for a wireless signal there should be a profile associated with your router, the same router you use to get on the internet on your home computer. Click on the profile, for me its my families last name.
  5. Now you must put in your Routers Password or WEP. This was giving to you by your Internet Service Provider when you set your internet up, so if you don't know it call them and find out!
  6. After this the PS3 should scan and complete setting up the internet connection. Now you must create an account on PlayStation Network.
  7. Go to the PS3's main dashboard and head all the way to the left under the icon "Users".
  8. Go down to "Create New User". Here you will think of a name that can be associated with you. Provide your email address that will be linked to this account and put in your information as it asks and thats it!
Note : If for any reason you are unable to connect to the network than it means the network key you are putting in is incorrect or may be the wireless settings are not correct. May be, you were able to connect earlier but then the settings can change and you will have to change the router settings again, which will fix the issue. It is easy, try it!
Good Luck!

If you used a proxy to access facebook. You will definitely receive that message it was accessed from a different place.

Proxy servers are based in different parts of the world. Facebook temporarily disables an account if it noticed that it was accessed from a far away place(e.g. outside of the country).

You can reactivate your account by following simple steps on the page that tells you that your account was accessed from a different place.

We cannot scan to email from our Sharp AR-M237 Multi-function "Error[973]: Incorrect format for Primary SMTP Server." I am using all the settings for SMTP that I use everywhere else. HELP?-pjm

Model AR-M257 - I have several Sharp MFP devices at different locations and all are set up to scan through our email server using a special account I have just for this purpose. I have all of them setup using the external IP address of our Exchange server (not its name or FQDN) and I have firewall rules setup to allow SMTP from the WAN IP addresses of our different offices to the LAN IP address of the Exchange server. It worked at all the others but this one. I was getting the following error when trying to send a status message (under Log) from the device to my email account as a test: [error 973] incorrect format for primary smtp server. And when I tried to scan through our email server I would get "network error". However, a connection test succeeded. I had everything set correctly for SMTP and DNS but as I was trying anything I could to get it working I went to mDNS under Services and it was enabled. I disabled it and then I could get a status message to be sent to me and we could send a scan through our email server.

Microsoft office

When you try to start a Microsoft Office 2007 or Microsoft Office 2003 program, you may receive the following error message or an error message that is similar to the following:

Error 25090. Office Setup encountered a problem with the Office Source Engine, system error: -2147023836. Please open SETUP.CHM and look for "Office Source Engine" for information on how to resolve this problem.

This behavior occurs when the following conditions are true:

* Two people installed Office on the same computer.
* Both installations were completed by using the AllUsers="" parameter to set the installation for the installing user account only.
* When both people were prompted to remove files that were copied locally at the end of Setup, both people did not remove the files.
* One of the two people removed Office.

To resolve this behavior, start the Setup program for Office. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Insert the Microsoft Office 2003 CD in your CD drive or DVD drive.
2. If the Setup program does not start automatically, locate the Setup.exe file on the CD, and then double-click the file to start Setup.
3. After the Setup window appears, cancel Setup, and then respond to the prompts to exit Setup.

Note: You do not have to complete the Setup program. Setup fixes the error condition when it is first invoked.

Printer set up is most likely because they have the wrong driver

the ones that can not install at all, probably have to have the permission to install as an administrator.

 so there are two issues.
