Hard drive DST failure


Your only option is to boot from the Windows CD and chose the option to repair your computer. That may work, but if not you should reformat the drive. If you have critical data on this computer, in the future be sure you ALWAYS have a backup!

Computer freezes when trying to access My Computer in any program


Could be a program running in background. Try to go to msconfig ( click on start, run, and type msconfig). On the startup items, disable all and reboot. See if the performance improves. If it does, enable startup program on msconfig one by one and reboot. to check what startup item is causing the slow performance. If it does not improve, might be an unnecessary driver for the system. Reinstall windows xp.

After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.

Windows xp home edition re-install repair


Buy a cd drive and reformat the computer completely and that will for sure get rid of the password protection. If you want to save all the information on the computer, then you will also need to buy a new hard drive and take out your old one.

Can't install new home printer (brother HL-2170W); have limited computer skills. Computer is HP Pavilion w. Win XP Home Edition. Old broken printer is HP LaserJet 1150, which I installed easily w. HP CD...


I wouldn't worry about turning the printer on and connecting it, that's just to avoid picking up generic drivers before you install the ones from the disk.

It's possible your installation CD is faulty. Follow these steps:

1) Download the latest drivers from the address below and install them.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/gb/en/model_top/monolaserpri/hl2170w_all.html?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=hl2170w_all

2) Connect your printer with pc off and turn both the pc and printer on. Windows should automatically install the drivers. If not then open device manager and install from there.

I hope this helps,

erch.

HOW TO SCAN ON HP PSC 1315


i have a Vista system and an old hp 1315. the CD driver that came with it includes some very useful software that cannot be installed in my laptop. according to the hp website, that's because Vista comes with a compatible software for my hardware. checking Windows Help & Support gave me this solution:

Open to Windows Photo Gallery, click File then click Import from Camera or Scanner.

i did exactly that and it worked!

i hope this was of some help.
