A warranty is a contract between the Buyer (You) and the Seller (Retailer, Wholesaler, or Manufacturer/Hewlett Packard?). If you don't have a copy of your warranty, then you'll have to contact (Via phone, mail, or website) Hewlett Packard or whomever your warranty is with, and with your model and serial number you should be able to find out the date you request.

Good luck.

Open Device Manager from Control Panel and check there are no yellow exclamation marks on any drivers. If there are then you need a new driver.

You need to goto the manufacturers website, find their support section and there should be a list of drivers for your specific machine. Installing these should resolve your problem. I have a list of links to most manufacturers drivers on my website.
Hope this helps,

Sounds like your photo program in configured wrong, The printer will draw it's setting from the default printer for the program and if you have the photo program set up to print in black and white then this is what the printer is going to do. Check the settings in your photo management software and see what they are

Why would you want to re-install a program which broke your system? I would feel fortunate there was no other damage done and move on. Even when you think you have the whole program wiped out, they still leave clutter hanging around, so, use explorer to go through your computer and get rid of everything to do with that program, unless it it now shared with another program.

Check your cable first.
You aren't getting a signal from your video output, so make sure the video card is seated on the motherboard.
If you have onboard video, then you may have other problems

If u want to configure windows mail it is not possible till u get a PREMIUM ACCOUNT from yahoo i.e a paid account from yahoo

HP Pavillion... • Answered on Feb 04, 2010

what is the issue you're having?

HP Pavillion... • Answered on Jan 18, 2010

You should try to request help from Yahoo. It's possible that your user file got messed up or you're simply using the wrong password. Try asking them to send your password to your e-mail, (unless they ARE your e-mail account). In that case, contact them and see if they can reset your password or you may just have to create a new account.
