I ran into the same problem in the past and discovered that 9 out of 10 times it is a driver issue. I can help but I need to know more about your pc. What operating system and type of computer it is.

    Go into start, control panel, sytem, click the hardware tab and then device manager. Is there any thing in the list with a yellow exclamation? If so then click the update drivers button at the top. Otherwise you need to google the device with the problem and download the latest updates. If this does not solve the problem then a fresh install will fix it. When you do it, unplug everything except the monitor, keyboard and mouse. Be sure to back up your data first.

How to REBOOT an Apple iBookG4?


Reboot is the term for shutting your laptop off and restarting it. as apposed to leaving your laptop running or in standby at all times.
The easiest way to restart is go to the Apple Menu in the top left corner and selecting Restart. You will be asked if you really want to restart.

The other way is to push the power button once and it will bring up the window asking if you want to shut down or restart.

How do I reboot vista laptop in order to remove radial point


a reboot is always a last resort!!! a better option to remove a program is to access control manager by pressing ctrl, atl, delete at the same time. when the prompt window is opened look through both processes and services tabs for anything related to the program hit stop process then just go to start>control panel>add/remove program. if that doesnt work restart your computer in safe-mode. if its a vista hit the power button let it rest for a sec then restart it. since the computer was improperly shut down it will ask if you want to start windows normally. don't instead choose start in safe-mode when it starts everything related to radial point will be shut down making it easy to remove the program through control panel. if you still whish to reboot shut down your computer by opening the start menu and in the lower right corner select restart. when the comp. restarts and the logo appears hit f8 quickly (you only have about 5 seconds before it restarts normally) choose boot with disk insert your start up disk and the computer will restart and all non-default programs will be lost. radial point will finally be defeated but at what cause? at what cause!!!??

My xerox phaser 8550 displays as offline. how do i get it up and ready to print?


First you need to find out why its offline, it could be the printer is off or the connection to the network or computer is unplugged or loose or just a wacky problem when there is a power outage from time to time or you changed some settings and never reboot your computer.

Try going to Start > Printers and Faxes > Right click on the Phaser printer to check the status there and right click > properties >Ports tab > select your printer and then configure port. a port settings window should open which displays the printers name and IP address. You can also find the IP address on the control panel on the printer scroll down to Information > Printer Identification and the IP address and other printer info should be displayed there.

Copy the IP address and paste it in the browsers address bar and check the status of your printer there, check if there are any jobs waiting to print, try clearing all of them, check the status page to see if there are any issues such as low ink, etc.

After running thru trouble shooting options and help menus there if all else fails, restart your printer by powering down, do the same for your computer and restart them both. I've had these issues before and sometimes just a reboot will correct itself.

Here is a workaround:

Another thing to try if it STILL doesn't work is
Printer&Faxes>>Properties>>Advanced>>"Print Directly to Printer"

Just remember to restart after you try both of these. The Status Monitor in it's current for (at least for me) simply sucks.
