How to Load or Reload"HP Digitalmedia archive" file and 'EZARC.msi to my HP Pavilion a1520n desktop. (XP)


Try this one:
This document pertains to HP and Compaq Desktop PCs with Windows 7, Vista, and XP. An error appears that contains a filename ending with MSI. (MSI refers to the Windows Installer.) This error can appear while Windows is starting up or when a particular software program is opened. This error might appear after using a Registry Cleaner or Registry Fix tool.
See the following error examples. Your error might be slightly different, but it has a filename that refers to or ends with MSI.
The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'TrayApp.msi' in the box below.
'HPProductAssistant' the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available.

  • HP application recovery process (Windows XP)
  • If errors persist, you can clean up the MSI registry entries by using Microsoft's automated solution. For more information, see Fix problems with programs that can't be installed or uninstalled (in English).
    Preventing MSI errors To prevent these errors from occurring, make sure that registry cleaning and spyware removal utilities do not remove files and registry entries associated with your software. Instead, if you no longer use a particular software title and want to remove all references from the registry, remove the software by using the Add or Remove Programs tool in Control Panel. The software uninstaller will remove the associated entries from the registry.
    Some products available for free on the Internet suggest that the registry needs regular maintenance or cleaning. However, use extreme caution when installing and using a registry cleaner. Many registry cleaners generate other MSI errors because they do not recognize valid registry entries and delete them. This can cause more MSI errors and prevent other programs from working.
    If you do decide to install a registry cleaner, be sure to research the product thoroughly, and then download and install programs only from software publishers that you trust .

    How to Recover Windows 7 Administrator Password


    Microsoft Windows 7 is the latest version of Microsoft Windows operating system. Compare to its predecessor Windows XP and Vista, Windows 7 is more powerful and more secure. Unlike Windows XP, Windows 7 adopted a new password protection system that we can't use the hidden administrator account by default. The problem is that when Windows 7 administrator password lost, we can no longer recover our lost password by using the hidden administrator account. Therefore, how to recover the Windows 7 Admin password if we lost or forgot it?

    Don't worry, here are two methods for Windows 7 administrator password recovery:

    Method one: Use another Windows 7 administrator account

    If you had created more than one administrator account on your Windows 7 computer and you can remember the others admin password, you are lucky. In such a case, you can change one of the administrator accounts' password if you login with another administrator account. What you need to do is just following these 3 easy steps:

    Step 1: Click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or remove user accounts

    Step 2: Choose the locked administrator account.

    Step 3: Click Change the password or Remove the password. And then you can change or remove the lost or forgotten password.

    Please note: If you select this method, the locked Windows 7 administrator account will lose all EFS-encrypted files, personal certificates, and stored passwords for Web sites or network resources.

    However, if the locked account is the unique administrator account on your Windows 7 computer, you can try the method below.

    Method two: Use third party Windows password recovery software

    There is plenty of software which is used to recover Windows password available online. You can choose one of them to create a Windows password recovery disk and use the disk to recover Win 7 Admin password. I recommend Windows Login Recovery. Then you can follow these 4 easy steps:

    Step 1: Download the software and install it on another computer which has a CD/DVD writer.

    Step 2: Run the software and burn the ISO image file into a blank CD/DVD.

    Step 3: Recover Windows 7 administrator password with nearly burned password recovery disk.

    Step 4: Reboot your locked computer without a password required.

    Now you can regain access your Windows 7 operating system and create a new administrator password. The best thing of using this method is that you shouldn't lose any data on your computer. Furthermore, If you can't find a computer which has a CD/DVD writer or the locked computer have no a CD-ROM, You can burn the ISO image file into a USB flash drive and use the USB flash drive to recover your Windows 7 administrator password.

    Try these two methods the next time you lose or forget your Windows 7 administrator password, which you do not need to reinstall Windows system for getting back to Windows by removing lost or forgotten password.

    My webcam is saying it is locked by another application. How do i find out whats locking it... Help!!!!


    Removing the camera software and reinstalling it using a "clean boot" may resolve the symptoms you are experiencing. Booting clean is a way to eliminate programs from conflicting with installation of software.

    1. Unplug the camera from the computer. Later you will be prompted by the software to plug in the camera; do so at that time only.
    2. Open the Windows Control Panel.
    3. Open the Add / Remove Programs window.
    4. Locate the listing for the camera software and remove it. When prompted to remove the camera drivers files, click Yes.
    5. Locate any other camera software and remove it as well.

    Now download the latest version of the software for your OS from the manufacturer's website.

    The following is the procedure for a 'clean boot'. I am assuming that you have XP. If you have a different OS, just let me know and I will send you the appropriate procedure to boot clean in that OS.

    1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
    2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
    3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
    4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
    5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
    6. Click on the Services tab
    7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
    8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
    6. Click OK
    7. Click Restart

    After restarting, reinstall the downloaded software. Next , do the following:

    1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
    2. Replace checkmarks in the items that you previously removed them from.
    3. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
    4. Click OK
    5. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

    Hopefully, you should not have any problem now. Let me know how it goes, and dont forget to rate the response!
