Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

1 Answer

My xp shows a device10 notification window on most shut-downs of my computer. I press the x in the upper right corner and I can shut-down. Right now it's just annoying. I have HP Officejet J4580 All-in One. The only thing different I've done is not replace the tri-color cartridge. I don't need color. Just black and white and saving money. I press OK to get rid of the cartridge missing alert. Everytime on startup. Comments anyone? Not sure of xp edition. It's home use.

Device 10 notification likely a printer related issue. Lots of odd things can happen when HP cartridges are empty. With some HP printers, they will not run with one etimpty cartridge. There is a work around in that instance. You can "fool" an HP into thinking the cartridge is full. Of course, you would want your HP to be set to use only the black ink, for otherwise, it might try to mix a batch of black ink using other colors (and your other tank would be empty!) Now, if you are not of a mind to buy the color cartridge, you can explore the trick of fooling the HP. There is a chance that this would eliminate your device 10 notification, simply because you tell me nothing else is different. No promises, but I would have to try it. Now, just what other effect the trick might have over time is a caution. Nothing is cleaning those other nozzels. At least your HP is still working as is.

Sounds like you have format your drive. Good practice is to leave a partition for just Windows and the other for the rest.

SOURCE: Continues rebooting

OK it is going to be difficult to solve this one with so many different errors. Given that this is windows Vista it is probably a bad driver. Possibly the graphics card driver. Also vista is quite punishing on hard disks so we'll start there.
First off take a backup of all your documents photos videos etc. because the check disk can cause havoc if it finds a lot of errors and can take down windows altogether. Also you must be prepared to re-install windows so make sure you have a recovery method (recovery CD's or a hidden partition on the Hard Disk) If the hard disk is truly borked though it might take the hidden partition with it. Proceed with caution and make sure you can get the PC back up and running if the worst happens.

First run a check disk. In My Computer, right click on the c drive, click on properties - tools - check drive for errors, then restart your computer and let the chkdsk run.

Post back here with the outcome.

Hi - my computer automatically shut down while I was online and kept telling me that the hard drive was at capacity.... - it wouldn't even let me control the volume without it saying something was wrong. ...


The hard drive has picked up a virus and corrupted window or the hard drive is defective, if you have the proper recovery disc give it a try, if it works you will have a fresh install of windows and you will know the hard drive is good.

I have a Compaq PC with Windows XP and the flat I've moved into has wireless broadband - how do I connect to it?


You can use a wireless network to share Internet access, files, printers, and more. Or you can use it to surf the Web while you're sitting on your couch or in your yard. Plus, it's easier to install than you think.
There are 4 steps to creating a wireless network:
1.
Choose your wireless equipment
2.
Connect your wireless router
3.
Configure your wireless router
4.
Connect your computers
For Windows XP users, Windows XP Service Pack 2 is not required for wireless networking, but it does make things much easier. Service Pack 2 also helps protect you against hackers, worms, and other Internet intruders.

Connect your computers
If your computer does not have wireless network support built in, plug your network adapter into your USB port, and place the antenna on top of your computer (in the case of a desktop computer), or insert the network adapter into an empty PC card slot (in the case of a laptop). Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter, and may prompt you to insert the CD that came with your adapter. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Note: The steps below only apply if you're using Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you're running Windows XP and you don't have Service Pack 2 yet, plug your computer into your wireless router and download and install Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Windows XP should show an icon with a notification that says it has found a wireless network.
wireless_connected.gifFollow these steps to connect your computer to your wireless network:
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower-right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks. If you run into any problems, consult the documentation that came with your network adapter. Don't be afraid to call their tech support.
2.
The Wireless Network Connection window should appear and you should see your wireless network listed with the network name you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper-left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower-right corner.
wireless_chooseconnection.gif 3.
Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.
4.
Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. After you're connected, you can now close the Wireless Network Connection window. You're done.
Note: If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key.
