Update and run your virus control scan

Run a registry cleanup if you have a program for that

Go to toolbar>tools>internet options>general tab and delete all
cookies

Go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools >clean disc

If you have a separate spyware program ,scan for spyware

How many programs do you hae running in the background?Look at the lower right corner and the little icons there. Turn off anything unneccessary (leave your virus control and spyware control on)

After you have completed all this, get back to me if your computer still will not shutdown or restart.

Does it have an on and off switch? You may have to use it, but you may lose things, so do all of the above and get back to me?

HP Printer Reset


Hi,

Resetting the printer can resolve several issues that may emerge. All the steps in the two sections below must be followed completely and in order for these resets to work. Performing a soft reset A soft reset, also known as an Electrical reset, can be used to restore the printer to a ready condition when a cartridge, paper, or other printing issues occur. This reset method should be used for the HP Photosmart 100, 130, 145, 230 and 245 printers. Perform a hard reset for all other HP Photosmart printer models.
  1. Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips.
  4. Remove all ink cartridges.
  5. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips.
  6. Close the main printer door
  7. Turn the printer off with the Power button and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to step 8.
  8. Unplug the printer AC adapter from the printer and the wall outlet or surge protector.
    NOTE: The adapter itself has an overload trip that may need resetting, but will not reset if power is flowing to it.
  9. Wait approximately fifteen to forty-five seconds to allow all current to dissipate from printer.
  10. Re-plug only the AC adapter into the wall outlet then into the printer, but do not plug in the USB cable.
  11. Wait for the appropriate missing ink cartridge error to verify that printer can recognize this error.
  12. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page.
  13. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections.
  14. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer.
  15. Test for printer functionality.
Performing a hard reset A hard, or mechanical, reset is performed when the printer is in a condition where its normal printing process is interrupted. Examples include a paper jam, carriage stall, or mechanical noise. To perform a mechanical hard reset, follow the steps below.
  1. Disconnect any USB cables attached to the printer and remove any memory cards from drive bay.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. Remove any paper from the paper tray.
  4. Unlock the ink cartridge locking clips.
  5. Remove all printer ink cartridges.
  6. Lock down the ink cartridge locking clips.
  7. Close the main printer door.
  8. Turn off the printer using the power button and wait for the printer to shut down before proceeding to step 9.
  9. Unplug the power from the back of the printer.
  10. Unplug the power adapter from the wall outlet.
  11. Remove the rear access door.
  12. Locate the clutch inside the printer. c00020494.jpg
    NOTE: The clutch is located in the same place as pictured above in Figure 1, however, you must access it from the left, just above the paper output tray.
  13. Press the clutch firmly towards the back of the printer, while rolling the wheels in the back of the printer upward two full rotations.
  14. Release the clutch and roll the wheels up two more rotations.
  15. Locate and then roll the internal rollers in an upward direction until a clicking sound is heard.
  16. Reinstall and lock the rear access door.
  17. Connect the power adapter to a wall outlet.
  18. Reconnect the power cable to the printer.
  19. Turn the printer on.
  20. Re-insert the paper into the input tray.
  21. Wait for the appropriate missing cartridge error to verify that the printer recognizes this error.
  22. Re-insert one ink cartridge only, to minimize confusion in case one of the cartridges is defective, and print an internal test page.
  23. If no errors are found, insert the other ink cartridge(s) and ensure that they are functioning by performing internal test pages or calibration pages. If an error occurs due to a defective cartridge, perform the appropriate steps for Resolving Ink Cartridge Rejections.
  24. After returning to the main Windows screen, reconnect the USB cable to the computer then to the printer.
  25. Test for printer functionality.
Goodluck,

Holding down the Func key while powering up, Num lock and Scroll lock flash, caps lock on steady. No Post. Help


If your laptop won't run the diagnostics ( Holding down the Func key while powering up ) then you need to try and isolate the problem. Something is preventing the laptop from performing POST ( power-on self diagnostics ). Try removing the hard disk drive, memory modules, external USB devices.

Anti-lock brake light stays on constantly. no one can seem to find out what's wrong with it. I had my brakes checked - drums were replaced. However, the warning light remains on.


When the ani-lock brake lamp is illuminated it indicates there is a diagnostic trouble code, or fault stored in the onboard computer.
The only way to determine the fault is to interface the onboard computer and read the fault code.
Nearly all independent shops as well as dealerships should be able to perform this service.
Good luck.

NP9890 shut down


If it is an overheating problem try turning the laptop off, turning it over and placing a vacum on the fan grill on the bottom. Many laptops get a dirt buildup internally and this will sometimes suck out the dirt.
