My laptop shuts down randomly

Tell them to give you a NEW computer. You got a lemon. They WILL give you a new one if you've had this much trouble with it. I'm serious, they do it all the time on lemons. Be assertive! They will cave.

Kindle Paperwhite 2nd Edition Operating System Pushed May 2015

Within the past week (2nd week in May 2015) Amazon *pushed* a new operating system onto my Kindle Paperwhite. I connected to Wi-Fi in order to synchronize, download, etc. and I left it connected for a while and I went and did something else. When I returned, it had gone into the sleep mode because it was not being actively used. When I brought it out of sleep mode I saw there was a notice on the home screen about it having been updated and to go to the Cloud and download the 2nd Edition of the Operators Manual.

But, here's the rub - the 3G Whispernet wouldn't connect or, more precisely, it said it was connected but it wouldn't do or display anything but a blank white area. I got to thinking maybe it had something to do with the new operating system not having been rebooted. Always, it seems, new operating systems must be rebooted. So I used the Menu button > Settings > Menu button again > Restart. (Not *Reset Device* which is directly below so be sure not to touch it by mistake) and my Kindle shut down. I gave it about ten seconds and it didn't restart so I pushed the power button and it restarted and went through the boot screen and progress bar.

When it started up again it went to my PIN screen where I entered the PIN and it went to a Home Screen I'd never seen before. It consisted of a bunch of book covers with some adverts for recommended books at the bottom.Well, I found out by reading the new 2nd Edition Operator's manual that I downloaded from the Cloud that the *Cover View* is the default with this new O/S and, if one wants the old familiar *List View* back, to just touch the Menu icon (three horizontal bars in the upper right) and select *List View* which returned my Kindle to the Home Page I was used to.

There are several other changes as well so do download and read the 2nd Edition Operator's Manual. Oh, BTW, the 3G and Wi-Fi works again. I've got a sneaky suspicion that the new O/S needed the Restart in order to properly register the device so it could connect.

Printer Canon Pixma mx340 not detected. It worked fine before. I instaled everything again from original cd and nothing. I tried on diferent computers stil nothing.

Your drives for the printer have been compromised, this is a common problem when switching to new devices, some times even moving the same equipment to another room will cause it. First thing you need to do is get into the "device manager" and see if your ports are enabled. Click in 'Start' Icon then go to 'Control Panel" and 'R Click' on "system". This should bring up a box with several tabs at the top. [Before I go any further I don't know what system you are running so you can also access "device manager' by clicking 'Start" go up to "my computer" and 'R click" this will open a drop down box where you want to go to the bottom and 'L click" on "properties" it will bring up the same box]. As I said before this should bring up a box with several tabs click on "Hardware" when it changes the first icon down will be "Device Manager" "L click on it and all the important drives and devices in the computer open up before (you may have to click the upper right hand corner to get a full page view) Each listing will have a little box to the left of it with a [+] sign next to it. Go down the list until you come to see "Ports (Com & LTP ). This is the way it shows on most computers. L Click" and the [+] box and it will open up to your drives. "R click on the first one and a drop down list list will pop out giving you the choices, choose "update driver" and let the wizard do it's thing. This is more than likely your "COM" port for your internet connections. Go to the next one that may say printer port or may just have "LTP", do the same thing to it. This is probably the only two ports activated on your computer, if there are more perform the same thing on them. Now we've got the PC opened up to take the printer drivers, try running your printer CD again and carefully follow all the download instructions. This should put you back into the printing business. In the event that this doesn't work you may need to go to your search engine and type " Free download for (your printer name and model) pay special attention to any letters after your printer type, such as "mx340a or n etc. This can make all the difference in the world on your download. It may not have one but be sure you look it over good. When you restart your computer after activating the drives go to "control Panel" again and "R click on "printers and scanners" then "L click open" and it should show your printer. Again "R click on the printer and 'L click on open" and see if the computer wizard can find your printer. (This step should have been performed before you try the internet download. I got ahead of myself.) All of your files are in the computer or printer and this should activate the directory and register keys should pick them up. dhgill1949

How can I listen to local police on my computer

  • Hi, I can help. Only some departments put their stuff on the internet. You can go here and scroll down to the area you want to listen to. If you click on the link and it opens up in the upper left corner of your computer they are online. If not then they are not. It is hands down the best place and you don't have to download anything extra onto your PC to make it run. Just make sure to have Java updated.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have brought in my notebook to a computer repair shop. I had to keep returning because they couldn't fix te problem In the end they replaced the motherboard. When we brought our notebook home the screen...

There is a lamp for the screen that may have gone bad, I really dislike it when you fix one thing then another one happens so I understand your frustration. You will have to bring it back and have this tested again if you can go to another shop in your area to have this done because it can be complicated to do. John

Did you repaired old drivers? if so first uninstall your products drivers and also its folders from program files, then uninstall "wrong update" and reinstall scanner. sometimes built in scanning modules comes wrong but everything works with original scanning software, use different software to scan and some of them may work perfectlly.

Have you tried uninstalling the scanner and reinstalling it? Do you have the original software for it. If you do not then you should be abe to obtain a driver download at this site:

If you need to download the driver, be sure to do a clean download which means you need to turn off the scanner and unplug it,to turn off all running programs to do this including virus control. Download the file and save it to your desktop then click on it to install. Restart your computer.

If you have any other questions please let me know and please rate the solution. Thank You.
