Now, when I plug the printer to the usb port, it appears in Device Mgr as USB hub generic.  I can't figure out how to install this printer.

    Enter the control panel > printers

    Click on the bar of tools add printer, and then select a local printer.

    Select the listed USB port (e.g., USB001 or DOT4 USB) and click Next

  • How can I get the internal speakers to work on a hpvs15 screen



    Try a reset of the monitor. Unplug the power cord from the monitor and hold the power button of the monitor for 30 to 60 seconds. Plug the monitor back in and it lights up.  Does that help?

    Consult this Manual.  Go into the on-screen display-->> volume and turn up to max all the sounds?

    Don't forget that you have a green audio cable plugged into the monitor and audio output on your PC port. Don't forget to unplug the headphones.

    Try a PC speaker separated in order to eliminate the PC as the problem.  You can also try the monitor and cable on another PC.

    Also, I followed all the steps here: use of the cleaning tool CC to resolve installation problems. CC, CS3 - CS6

    The only thing I can think that don't go as described is the verification of the cleaning tool, also no log file is created.

  • How can I get the spell checker to work on emails?

    New computer. Using Mozilla Thunderbird for email but the spell checker does not work.

    Do you have a dictionary installed or selected? (See attached image).

    You have activated the spell under Tools | Options of| Composition | The spelling?

    You can also download a dictionary in the settings pane opened by the latter sense, but the link it provides is almost certainly open in Thunderbird. At some point, it of better with the right button and select 'Open in browser' and it will re - open in your default browser. From there, you can download. I would recommend you right click on the proposed link, use "Save as" and download it. You can then drag the file downloaded from the window modules modules of Thunderbird, or use the small button to the left of the search box in the window.

  • How can I get the button tab to work again?

    The button tab and the '+' have been working fine until this morning. Since this afternoon, however, they are all two has stopped working. I click on each of them and nothing happens. I can't open a new tab. I have to open multiple browsers in order to work with the different windows. I followed the suggestion of another user and checked the Add-ons, and nothing happened. I have no ASK bar, so that came out also. Can you help me? I ran out of resources. Thank you!

    Hi, madperson! And thanks for your reply. Yesterday, when I posted my request, I had already run FF in safe mode and checked all the (and some) ext/addons I have. The problem persisted, while I posted my question. This morning, however, the glitch seems to have emptied himself! The button tab and the icon "+" both work as before! Don't ask me what happened, I couldn't even begin to try to explain. In any case, here's the ext/addons I: Norton Protection against vulnerabilities. Personas; Flash Video Downloader; Groowe Search Toolbar (which was proposed by Mozilla); and Yahoo Toolbar. Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it.

  • I'm using Firefox 3.6 on my PC, and now, when I select file > new tab (Ctrl + T), no new tab appears. Neither it appears when I click on the new symbol of the tab next to my other tabs. How can I get the feature tab to work again?

    In the past 48 hours, all of a sudden, the new tab featured on my PC, using Firefox 3.56, simply stopped working. I do not change the settings, or download a new version of Firefox. It has just stopped working. There are other scenarios where it still works (for example, if I want to open a link in a web page, I can right click and open link in a new tab), but if I want simply to have several websites open at one time on my PC, I have to have multiple versions of Firefox open as my new tab option seems to be disabled or something. Can you help me?

    Uninstall the toolbar Ask and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask and Firefox toolbar that prevents the opening of new tabs.
