Boot up t6412 complains about personal profile missing uses default profile

The boot up for t6412 won't use the personal profile. We can't even use the recover cd as things are going down hill fast. Not sure where to start to trouble shoot. Any assitance would be appreciated.

If you have been careless on line and are not running virus protection, you may be infected.

There are a number of sites on line that will scan your system and I suggest you use them before you are completely out of business.

Windows 7 with Gigabyte motherboard says "ntldr is missing"

Check if UEFI is disabled after flash with newer BIOS version. If you flash BIOS the default settings gets loaded again. Check hard disk settings and boot settings.

    you're not the first one this has happened to. people are hacking in to peoples accounts and using their profiles or intentionally deleting it. FB will deny it; but many of us know it's true.
    having 10k friends is insane just so someone can have numbers.
    if you don't know them personally; refuse the friend request. I would first go through your list and delet all the unknowns.
    you'll have to re-build your profile, but use as little info as possible.
    and any anti-government or FB rhetoric is being looked at..CLOSELY. so make sure to save your opinions for people in real life.
    FB is becoming a domain of predators and watch-dogs groups.

    My computer does not display and yet it keeps beeping

    There are some loos cables. Try unseating the RAM, clean it & put it back. Check that all power and IDE cable along with the 24 power pin is snug tight. Reboot and try to enter BIOS. Set evrything to default and try to boot in safe mode and then "last when it worked best". That should do it, else try booting from CD and repair the OS......sodeep

    Documax 3300 Printer reponse

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

    The RAM Map is basically like the built-in memory of your mobile phone that holds your personalized settings/configurations (profile). Like in some phones (and even computers - personal settings), these settings from time to time do get mixed up. Doing a general reset then removes these personalized settings but reverts the unit back to factory default.

    As outlined in here, it is relatively easy to reset, however, an initial step is required so that you could save your settings/configurations. An excerpt that addresses your concern:
    • You cannot do a default reset in the fashion as you would an XL Series printer. If you desire to reset the Non Volatile Ram in the Documax 3300 printers, you must first gain access to Menu 10.**Before resetting it you may need to be print the profile! To Print a Profile:
    1. Take the printer off-line
    2. Open the keypad door.
    3. Press the Feature UP key until "Print Profile" is displayed
    4. Press "Enter"
    • This will print the current profile only. You must repeat the above steps for each profile, after closing the keypad door.
    • To clear the printer buffer and reset all features in RAM, turn the printer off then turn it back on.
    • To reset all profiles to factory default, perform the following:
    1. Load paper into the printer
    2. Place the printer online
    3. Press and release the Profile key
    4. Press and release the Park key
    5. Open the keypad door and use the next menu key to scroll to menu 10.
    • Reset Printer NVM should be displayed. Press Enter. You will have to set any features that you have changed from factory.
    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Before booting shows 2 profile

    You need to edit your boot.ini file Click on START, right click on MyComputer, click on properties. In the System Properties Window click on the Advanced tab at the top, then click on Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click on Edit to edit the startup options manually. it should open a notepad that looks similar to this: [boot loader] timeout=5 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws XP Media Center Edition" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut Under the [Operating Systems] sections is where you will have multiple entries for profiles. Delete the entire entry for the profile you don't use. Save the file afterwards and that should do it. Good Computing!
