HP Vista Won't accept software program.

I install my disc and it goes through the process, but does not "Locate Printer". It has worked before in this computer, but after restoring it to factory specs I can't get it to accept the software program. I appreciate any help.

My computer wont boot system restore is not working or my


If you have the original Microsoft Windows install cd you can do a non-destructive install that will reinstall Windows over top of your existing copy and fix a lot of problems. However if you do not have the original cd, and your computer is newer, you can usually download a copy to burn to disc from the manufacturers website. If you get an install disc, simply boot the computer with the cd/dvd in the drive and when prompted choose install windows, and non-destructive recovery and let it go through the process of installing. Your computer may restart several times but don't touch it until it asks for you to choose options or goes to the desktop.

Screen freezes when reloading system disc


Instructions

Back up any important files already on your G4's hard drive. A factory restore completely wipes the system of all files you've created so, if possible, make sure you have another copy of all your files, images, music, etc.

Connect your G4 to its charger. Restoring the computer is a delicate process that erases and reinstalls the most basic and important files of your system. If the computer runs out of battery before the restoration is complete, files may be damaged or left uninstalled. The result of this varies from having to restart the process completely to permanent dysfunction of your computer. Play it safe. Make sure you have plenty of battery left and the computer is plugged into the wall.

Locate your Mac OS X Install CD/DVD. If you have lost the original disc or never received one (a common problem when purchasing used computers), there are a few options to consider. The first is to ask around; if you have friends or family with a Mac computer they may still have their CD. It would be usable on your computer. If this option fails, look online for a download of the installation CD. Some sites offer installation CDs for all kinds of computers, including the G4.

Insert the install disc into your computer's disk drive. Once visible, click the "Install Mac OS X" button. Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your computer preferences and begin installation.

Select a destination disc for the installation. This is typically the "Macintosh HD" icon. Next, click "Options," and follow the rest of the on-screen prompts/instructions. After this, the software is installed. The computer should reset itself or can be manually reset by holding down the power button twice.

How to restore hp pavilion dv4000 to factory settings


The way to restore most PCs to factory settings is to reinstall Windows. First, MAKE SURE you have the Windows disc that came with your computer and the drivers/utilities disc that came with it.

To start restoring, put the Windows disc in that came with your computer, and run it. Find the option to install/reinstall Windows, and select it (you may have to boot from the disc, which can be done by changing the boot order in BIOS settings). Follow the instructions Windows Setup gives you.

After you're done with that, don't freak out if the sound, wireless, touchpad, etc. isn't working. Insert the drivers/utilities disc now and install all the drivers that are on it onto your laptop.

You are now done with the restore process!

My asus 1001ha is infected with viruses & wont do anything how do i restore to factory settings?


If it is a bad virus that won't let you do anything on the computer, follow the instructions on this link. If you can install programs on your computer, follow only steps 7 and 8 from the above link.

If you still want to restore it to factory settings, you will need the restoration CD/DVD that came with the laptop, put it in the drive and boot from it to start the restoration to factory settings. If you don't have the restoration disc, you will need a Windows installation disc to install a clean copy of Windows and wipe the HDD. Same process, put disc in and boot from it then follow the instructions for Windows installation (you will need the drivers disc though).

HOW DO I RESTART MY ACER LAPTOP


  • 1

    Connect the host computer (the computer that will be connected via wire to the printer) to the printer using the provided USB cable. Insert the printer software CD into the disc drive and click the "Install" button when it appears on-screen. Click "Continue" at the bottom of the next window.

  • 2

    Click "Yes" when asked whether the host computer will be sharing the printer. Give both the host computer and the printer a network name that will be used to connect to the other computers when prompted to do so. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions until the installation process is complete.

  • 3

    Go to a different computer on the network and insert the printer software CD into the disc drive. Click the "Install" button when it appears on screen. Select the "Network" option on the screen marked "Connect Your Printer."

  • 4

    Enter in network names of both the host computer and the printer into the dialog boxes in the next window. Continue to follow the on-screen instructions that will prompt you to begin the installation process. The installation process should take less than five minutes to complete. Click "Finish" once the software downloaded from the CD is complete. The printer will now be available to both computers on the network. Repeat these steps to enable another computer to work through the same network.
