Question about IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook

1 Answer

Installing software I'm logged on an Adminstrator and I'm trying to install new programmes (both from the web and from CD-ROMS) and it won't let me, plus I can't access the User Documents file, as it says I don't have the appropriate priveleges. I've tried setting up a new user account and instralling stuff from that one, but I get the same error messages. This is highly frustrating as I need to install new data analysis programmes for work.

Only thing you can do is take the drive to another computer and extract the settings and doucments from the original computers drive then format the drive and start all over again

Reload the softwares from the start again and then set your permission levels again

this time making note of all the New Passwords .....

Or you could try
Add Adminstrators Account # 2
delete the Administrators Account # 1
Reboot and try again.

If this fails you stand to lose your systems operation until your reload a new install again

New Install should be about 30 min,
Faster if your computer has a Back Up image,
already on it in a partion,
(my system install takes 7 minutes)

Make sure you have your disks handy when before you get started,You may need them,

Good luck with your mission,
Please let me know of your outcome.

Try this.

Go to the web site "Filehippo.com" download and install a programme called "Ccleaner" an excellent programme which can be used to clean web rubbish off your pc.

Once installed, open the programme and click on the tools icon in the column on the left hand side of the window. This will give several options, one of which is "Uninstall", click on said option and scroll down to your "jcam" software and uninstall.

Re-boot your PC and try to re-install the software.

Preinstalled Office home and Student 2007 backup copy


When you purchased your computer, the vendor-supplied "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs were used to install both the Windows operating system and a selected set of additional software, which includes that version of Microsoft Office. So, those disks are your backup.

Thus, taking a different set of Microsoft Office CD-ROMs, such as one purchased from a retail outlet, and trying to use the listed product-key with that "retail" set of CD-ROM disks is *NOT* allowed by Microsoft, as you have discovered.

HP F2280 won?t scan multiple pages into a PDF file


I fixed this by Installing the full suite of programmes on the installation CD, specifically Installing the "OCR Isis" programme (or Iris, not sure).

I had the scan-to-pdf option, but then when I reinstalled my system it was no longer available. I tried updating Adobe Acrobat reader to v9.0 and I don't think this fixed it. But at the same time I installed the "extra" programmes of the HP Installation CD, and then the scan-to-PDF feature was back.

So basically, install the COMPLETE set of programmes on the HP installation CD seemed to fix this.

I have a HP Deskjet F2180 printer, but I suspect that the HP software is generic across alot of its product range.

Cheers! - Hope this helps someone.

Canon MP500 all in one printer is not compatible with Windows Vista. Is there a solution for this problem, or do I need to buy a different printer?


My Canon PIXMA MP500, purchased in mid-2006, came with the (then) ScanSoft OmniPage SE2 software on a CD. The PC had WinXP Installed. I had no use for the ScanSoft it so I made no effort to install it.
Fast Forward:
Two PC crashes later, July 2009. Using Win Vista Home Premium
LOST, important WinWord document file, only a hard copy available.
I tried to recover, scanning the "Xerox" copy. The SE Version of OmniPage was very complicated but I succeeded in producing a replacement *.doc file.

It appears that newer editions of WinVista contain the right printer drivers for this Canon Model.

Installing error code -106


what this suggests is that the files cannot be transfered to the hard drive because of either you havent the latest version of .net http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&DisplayLang=en, or you are low on hard drive space or afaulty disc. download from the above link first, then if still not installing try copying all the installation files across to your pc and try again, but check you have enough hard drive space.
