I have MS office installed on my PC but somehow have lost MS Access. How to reload MS Access ?


Hello:
First, verify that you have the correct version of Microsoft Office. Microsoft Access was only included in the Professional version of Microsoft Office 2003.
Second, Microsoft Access is probably still on your computer, but you no longer have a shortcut to it. You can create one by following these instructions:
  1. Open a file browser by navigating to Start>Computer (Start>My Computer on XP)
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 11\
    (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office 11\ on x64 systems)
  3. In this folder is a file called MSACCESS.exe. This is Microsoft Access.
  4. Right-click on the file.
  5. Hover/click on the "Send To" option.
  6. Click on the "Desktop (Create Shortcut)" option.
  7. You now have a shortcut to Access on your desktop.

Im having problems starting my compaq from the windows 7 install disk. I set up bios to start from dvd drive, but get a blank screen.


Windows 7 is a large operating system and would require your system to have the maximum of 1GB of memory installed. If there isn't sufficient memory for the system to load the Windows Pre Boot Environment then the install can not continue.
This system is 9-10 years old and will not run Windows 7 very well, but if you install the maximum amount of memory it should install the operating system.
You may also want to verify that the DVD drive works by trying to boot to another bootable disc such as a Windows XP installation disc or an Ultimate Boot CD that you can create yourself.

I have an SR1000 SR182ONX desktop, but the front of my built in DVD/CD writer/player say SR192ONX. I can't burn or play DVDs. The current driver (TS-H552L) says it is not a writer. I need the correct...


It sounds like your operating system quit seeing your dvd/cd writer/player.
to check this locate mycomputer icon, or goto start and locate computer and right click on it.
a window will open, click on properties, then left click on Device manager you will see all the devices on your computer, and you should see DVD/CD-ROM drives in the list of devices. if you right click on this you have a choice of scan for new devices or Properties, if you scan for new devices chances are it will not find you dvd/cd-rom device, windows operating system very seldom does. so click on properties,
You will see several choices like reload driver, update driver, uninstall drive depending on your operating system. If you have the DVD/CD-rom device cd with the software driver then and only then you may uninstall the driver, so you can reload it to make the operating system see the device after you reboot the computer, then install the driver again... If you do not know what I'm talking about...Take the computer back to the repair shop and have them to the repairs to make the Windows Operating system see the DVD/CD-rom device.

Good luck...

Most Compaq computers come with a ONE-YEAR WARRANTY.
So, contact Compaq, since your computer is less than one year old, and get them to trouble-shoot the problem, and/or repair/replace the computer, by exercising your warranty.

When reloading windows and you are on the blue


Probably the problem is in the RAM, first open the RAM(s) and clean its both side copper teeth with a pencil eraser and try to setup XP. If not works then replace the RAM(s) and try again. Thanks.

To wipe and reload you don't actually have to log in. You just need to set first boot option to CD, insert the XP disk, and reboot the computer. All the steps from there on out are explained on the screen.

I hope this helps :)
