Hello, Sara.

The uploaded program may have caused some problems with your operating system.

Boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, all your updates will roll back to that date.

You'll probably need to upload that program again.

Hope this helps.

Display only in safe mode


It is possible that your computer is not able to start up (normally), e.g. problem with your Windows XP, Windows 7, etc. ... e.g. you see a blinking cursor at the top left corner of your (blank) blue screen.
If this is the case, you can try to repair your disk first ... in save mode, get to a DOS prompt, i.e. >
You may see options/commands (at the DOS > prompt) by typing HELP. One of the programs that attempts to repair the disk is CHKDSK. Type at the > prompt: CHKDSK /? to see the options
Then, run the CHKDSK command to repair the boot disk.
After completing the chkdsk, type EXIT (to go back to Windows). If necessary, shut down and power up again and see if the boot disk has been repaired.
In the worst case, you may have to restore your disk from backup, or boot from a back-up (boot disk / CD) to fix the boot disk problem. But first try to save/store all your (personal) files (while in SAFE mode) before you reformat the disk and re-install the operating system (from an installation / boot CD disk)

My computer will not shut off---screen blank except the cursor


Unplug it. Works every time.

Run the Check Disk UtilityTo run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I have a Sony VGN-NR180E laptop, the hard disk had needed changing so i bought a new one. installation went perfect, up on loading up my new os windows7 in my laptop, it shut off due to no power ( was...


I suggest you reinstall the windows 7 again. The installation was interrupted because the battery ran out of power, the result was a corrupted and incomplete installation of windows. And that is the main reason why you are just getting a blank screen.

This is probably a loose video car.

When you were fixing the RAM (probably remove it and then re-seat it), the video card may have come loose.

1. Turn off the PC and unplug it;
2. Touch something metallic to discharge static;
3. Unplug the monitor cable;
4. Open the case and carefully remove the video card.
5. Carefully but firmly replace the video card (most cards will snap when they fit back into place -- follow your video card manufacturer's instructions -- get these from the manufacturer's website.)
6. Plug everything back in and restart the PC.

You should get a good third party defrag program to keep your PC running at its best.

Fragmentation is basically broken-up pieces of files and free space randomly scattered all over your disk. The disk has to work a lot harder to save files in pieces and then to find them again and this really slows your computer down. It also wears out your disk, as the more the disk is used, the faster it wears out.

Basic defragmenting finds all the pieces of a file and puts them together, saving time.

Windows has a built-in defrag tool but it is very slow and you cannot use the PC while it is running (some users complain that it did not completely defrag their disks despite running all night).

Here is a Top 10 Reviews side-by-side comparison of the best defrag programs around:

http://disk-defragmenter-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

Select a program and install a free trial. The better defrag programs are automatic. The gold medal winner in the above review can defrag while you use the PC and it will also prevent fragmentation.

You can get a free trial for the gold medal winner via the review or at: http://www.diskeeper.com/defrag

Defragment your disk drives regularly.

Good luck to you!

Installer Canon PIXMA iP1000 Printer


If you attached the printer FIRST, before you installed the CD disk that comes with the printer, you will have conflicting drivers.
When you install device without installing it's drivers, Windows 'sees' the device, and matches up one of the thousands of generic drivers it has.
You need THE drivers for YOUR printer.
Windows will have a conflicting issue with which drivers to use. The ones it matched up, or the ones you installed.

A Driver, is software that allows an operating system to 'communicate' with a device. (Windows XP is an example of an Operating System)

Should you have connected your printer first, THEN installed the CD disk, this is how to correct the problem,

1.Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs. REMOVE anything you see listed with Canon's name in it, pertaining to your printer. There may be more than one program.
You should be asked if you wish to restart your computer. NO!
Close all windows until you are back to the desktop screen, then shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

2.Computer off, and unplugged from the surge protector. (Electricity)

3.Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. (Count, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

4.Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.
(Number 3 and Number 4)
What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

5.Now plug the computer back into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.

6.After Windows has fully loaded all the way, and any programs you have in the Start Up menu have loaded, install the CD disk that came with the printer. Follow the installation instructions.

7.Once the installation is done, you can restart your computer if asked. If you are not asked, go ahead, and restart your computer.

8.After Windows has fully loaded, and any Start Up programs have loaded, plug the USB cable from the printer into your computer.

9.Plug the printer into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the printer on.

You should see, "Found New Hardware", and possibly, "Found Canon Pixma ip1000"

Since your two cameras have the same problem with the same computer, I would like to suggest you to connect those cameras to another computer. It looks like the problem is on the computer side.

Downloading to computer


Cliff notes version: Try it with the "Solution Disk" in the drive.

Detailed version: I had the same problem, but when I re-installed the "Solution Disk", it said, LEAVE THE DISK IN THE DRIVE. I turned my camera on -- connected to the computer and with the disk in the drive -- and the program started automatically, instructing me to click on the Upload button, which looks like a printer with a cable coming off it (it's to the right of the Delete button and underneath the slide-control that shifts from Camera mode to Preview on my A570IS; it will light up when it's ready).

Before uploading . . . Click on Menu (on camera) to verify your Direct Transfer options. Mine was set on Wallpaper, so it only uploaded the one image and automatically set it as my computer wallpaper. (A neat feature, but not what I was looking for.) Set it to "All images" or "New images" and click on the Upload (lit up) button on the camera.

Note: If it doesn't come up automatically, start the ZoomBrowser program and click on Tasks (to show the menu options below it). The first option is Acquire & Camera Settings; click on that. Then click on the appropriate item (Connect to Camera, Connect to EOS Camera, or Acquire images from Memory Card). You can set it to automatically launch by clicking that option on the main software page.

Finally . . . After it's working, confirm/modify your Preferences in the ZoomBrowser and Utility programs; even if you don't change anything, this will let you know how it's set up.
