Still can't open folders.

I have opened the start menu but I failed to mention that my computers language is set in Dutch, so there is nothing labeled system tools there anwhere. Can you be more specific as to where I might find this?

Change language back to english on polar heart rate monitor ft4

I had the same problem. So I will try to guide you by button push method (because I didn't understand anything in Dutch that said on the panel). If you look at the polar main wrist watch (easy to say) you will see 5 button. 2 of left and 3 on right. 2 left are top -backlight (21) bottom - back or exit from menu (22). The 3 right buttons are top - scroll up (31), middle - menu (32) and bottom -scroll down (33). Now we know the button number here we go.

Hold 22 for 3 sec. You will see current time showing up. Press 33 once -- Setting ---> press 32 once ---> watch time and date ---> press 33 three time ----> general setting shows up ----> press 32 once ----> button sound shows up ---> press 33 twice ---> language shows up --->press 32 once ----> language blinks ----> press 33 or 31 till you see english or your language of choice ---->press 32 once ----> language is set ---->press 22 for 3 sec and you are back to the watch menu. Hope that helps. This will guide you even if you don't understand anything from the language.

I need to restore my computer to the factory settings. I have an HP PavillionDV5000 with Windows XP. When I open PC Recovery and select "PC Recovery", the computer automatically shuts down and...

After you've used your laptop for an extended period of time its hard drive may become filled with files you don't want or even infected with malicious virus programs downloaded from the Internet. If you don't want to go through the folders on your laptop and manually delete each unnecessary file you can restore the computer to its original factory settings instead. Restoring a laptop wipes out any existing data and entirely reinstalls the operating system.

1.Place the operating system recovery CD that came with your computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.
2.Wait for the computer manufacturer's logo to pop up on the screen. Press the keyboard key that brings up the recovery menu, which is usually "F2," "F8," or "Ctrl" and "F11" pressed simultaneously.
3.Select the specific language you want the operating system to use from the menu at the top of the screen. Select "Next."
4.Choose the option labeled "PC Restore," "Repair Your Computer" or something similar. Click "Next."
5.Select "Restore" and then click "Enter" to start the process. Click "Restart" once the process has ended to boot the restored computer to its operating system.

I cannot install toshiba satellite m70-340 in win 7

If you have a Windows 7 cd/dvd, do the following to install it on your computer:
1. Put the CD in the CD / DVD drive or tray. 2. Restart the computer. 3. At the moment you power on your computer, there should be words along the bottom of the screen. Look for 'BIOS Setup', then press the corresponding function key for that setup (such as 'F2' or 'Delete'). 4. You should be presented with a blue screen with a bunch of options. Look for something along the lines of 'Advanced Options'. Use the arrow keys to select this option, and press the enter key on the keyboard. 5. Now look for 'Boot Priority'. Arrow down or up to this option, and press enter. Look for CD-ROM. Arrow down to this option and press the PLUS (+) key on the keyboard until the option is at the top of the list. 6. Press F10 to save and restart. 7. When the computer restarts, text along the bottom will say "Press any key to boot from CD-ROM'. Press any key to start up from the Windows 7 installer. 8. Once the installer loads, select your language and click 'Next'. 9. If you want to upgrade from an earlier version of Windows, which will retain your programs and files, choose 'Upgrade'. Sometimes this will not work, so you will then have to choose 'Advanced or Clean Installation'. This will overwrite your previous version of Windows with Windows 7, but it will also move all of your old stuff to a folder called 'Windows.old'
This will be located in your C:/ drive. To access it after the installation, open the start menu, click on 'Computer', and look for something labeled "C:/". Click on it and look for a folder labeled 'Windows.old'. Open this folder. If upgrading from Windows Vista, look for a folder labeled 'Users', and click on it. For XP, click on Documents and Settings, then Users. Look for the foler with your user name and click on it. In here will be all of your documents, music, pictures, videos, etc. To move these into Windows 7, simply drag the contents of each folder into the corresponding Windows 7 folder. For example, you would open the 'My Documents' folder in Windows.old as well as from the start menu in Windows 7. Drag the documents from the old 'documents' folder into the 'new' documents folder.
10. Follow along with the installation, clicking 'next' when required to and waiting for it to complete. The computer will restart several times. DO NOT CLICK ANY BUTTONS OR TOUCH ANY KEYS WHILE IT IS RESTARTING. 11. When the installation is complete, Windows 7 will be ready to go, but if you did a clean install you must now install drivers, which make all of the parts of your computer work proper;y together. Go to the Toshiba Support website, and look for a link that says 'Drivers' or 'Downloads'. When you get to this page, type in your model number so that you find the correct drivers for your computer.
Download and install all of the drivers on the page. If there are different versions (32 and 64-bit), check to see which version of Windows you have. To do so, open the start menu, right click on 'Computer', and click 'Properties'. In the window that opens, you will see what version of Windows you have near the top of the screen. It will say either 32 or 64 bit, then you would download the corresponding drivers for your version.
One all the drivers are installed, restart your computer. Your Windows installation is now complete.

Control panel menu is not in english.

Here are 2 ways of changing that. I changed mine to Portugese once. Had a heck of a time figuring out what the menu said LOL. Both proceses will change it back. To change the language used for the text on the front panel:
  1. On the front panel, with Menus highlighted, press the OK key.
  2. Scroll to the Printer Setup Menu by pressing the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.
  3. Press the OK key.
  4. Scroll to Set Front Panel Language by pressing the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.
  5. Press the OK key.
  6. Scroll to the desired language by pressing the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.
  7. Press the OK key to save the selected setting
This is how you change it via your computer.
  1. Open a web browser on your pc.
  2. Type the IP address of the printer into the address area and press return.
  3. Select the Properties tab when the page is done loading.
  4. Look in the left hand column for the + General folder.
  5. Click on the + one time to open the folder.
  6. Under the general folder you will see a subfolder named Printer Defaults.
  7. Click on the Printer Defaults folder one time and you will see a new column open on the right side of the page named Printer Defaults.
  8. In the first box, User Preferences, you will see a header for; Set front panel language with the default setting.
  9. Click on the down arrow and a list of different languages will open.
  10. Select the desired language.
  11. Scroll down the page and under the last box you will see two tabs named Save Changes and Discard Changes.
  12. Select Save Changes one time.
  13. Once you have pressed Save Changes you should get a box that opens up and states; Request Acknowledged; No errors were reported.
  14. Look at the front panel of the printer and the language should be changed to the language you selected above.
