So I re downloaded Thunderbird and followed the tutorial on copying and pasting the old profile in the profile folder and now Thunderbrid (I think) will not open.

    Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.
    

    So I put everything in the trash and re downloaded the program, and I still get the same error (I however wouldn't be the case that I was starting from scratch).

    the key is a W7 starter upgrade to W7 Home premium. bought the Comet, unfortunately.

    The first thing you need to do is to get your key to Windows 7 Professional upgrade Express:
     
    An e-mail containing your product key will be sent to the e-mail address associated with your Windows Live ID account or e-mail address you provided if you ignored the account configuration. Note: If you use an email tool or spam blocker spam filter, be sure that you can receive e-mail messages from microsoft.com.
     
    What happens if I lose my product key?
     
    If you lose your product key, you can return to

    www.Windows7.com/GetKey and sign in using the "Sign In" link in the upper right of the page. This will allow to recover your product key if you have established your account with your Windows Live ID. If you do not configure a Windows Live ID account initially there is no record of your online product key. Check your e-mail since it is the only trace of your product key.

    -------------------
     
    The next thing you need to do is to reinstall the base license that you upgraded, Windows 7 Starter Edition or Home Premium.
     
    If your computer is pre-installed with Windows 7:
     
    New computers coming often pre-installed with Windows 7 have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.
     
     
     
    -Samsung uses ESC on most of its systems
     
    -HP use F9 on most of its systems
     
    -Fujitsu uses F12 on most of its systems
     
    -Acer use F12 on most of its systems, but often you need to go into BIOS to allow

    -Dell uses F12
     
     
     
    In general, look at the screen during the POST for a tip for what is possible.
     
     
     
    If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.

  • BlackBerry Smartphones Blackberry Bold 9700 for ORANGE bought in the UK, but never used does not work with TELSU SIM in the Canada

    I had a Blackberry Bold 9700 as a gift.  I think it was made for the Orange network in the United Kingdom ('Orange' written at the bottom of the BlackBerry in the front).  I tried to use it with my TELUS account in Canada with TELUS SIM.  The Blackberry does not register any wireless network signal.  The meter of signal display "SOS" only and no TELUS network is avaiable.  My position is Mississauga (Ontario) and Telus wireless covers this area for sure.  I checked that the device is not locked by going to Options-Advanced-online SIM card and typing MEPD Options Online.  The options that appear to say 'off '.  The device seems to read the SIM card because the SIM card # appears.

    Y at - it someone who has the same problem and its resolution.  A large part in this regard, the obligation for any input.

    Hello

    I just discovered the reason for BB does not not with TELUS that I wanted to inquire about registration CDMA you mentioned...

    A smart guy, he asked me to check the frequency bands that supports my BB.  Its sub Options => on.  "3 G bands" that supports my BB are 1, 4, and 8.  These correspond to the IMT 2100 MHz, AWS 1700 MHz and GSM 900 MHz respectively.  The frequencies that TELUS uses in the Canada are groups 1, 2, 5 and 6.

    So, finally tech TELUS came with the answer that my BB is designed to work with some UK frequencies and not with TELUS frequencies in the Canada.

    I've misunderstood and used the term incorrectly HARD LOCK.  The BB I have shows all the options as "disabled" when I go into options in advance-online SIM card and press the MEPD.  Also if I press MEP2 unit not asks me to input MEP codes.  Nothing happens.  This led me to believe that this device is not locked to ORANGE network so the lack of a better term, I used little HARD LOCKED.

    Much obliged for your entry.  It has been enlightening.  Thank you very much.

    Hello, reda,

    Wow.  I had finally fixed it!

    I rebooted in safe mode and Office would not work.  I got an error message saying:

    "MS Office is unable to verify the license for this application.  A repair attempt failed or was canceled by the user.  The application will now be stopped. »

    When I rebooted normally, the same error message!  If I could use not any Office10 application at all!

    I tried to run repair a few times without success.

    Then, I tried to re - enter my key product several times with no success.

    So I completely uninstalled Office, rebooted and tried to reinstall it.  He would not move from the DVD; It got stuck after a few minutes!  (I had already reinstalled the DVD even Office a few times before to try to solve my problem, so I didn't think that the DVD was bad.)

    Finally, I borrowed a USB key with the Office Setup program from one of our it specialists.  Finally I could reinstall Office10, enter my product key and activate the online office!

    And now everything works perfectly.

    Thank you very much for your help and encouragement.
