I tried to use a usb flash drive, but it comes up with an error message that says that it was unable to reset the password if anyone can help me please.

    I installed the two made sure the riders were that they were supposed to be

    the dvd drive installed fine. The problem is that I installed the burner.

    It's a Pioneer DVR - 115D installed as secondary

    The pc shows, but the green light on the front of the burner continues to blink as if it were held (two times then pause) continuously.

    The tray has a mind of its own, whenever I restart my pc it opens.

    I called pioneer & the guy said that my motherboard BIOS needs to be updated, if that's what I did, updated AO1 to AO3 I think it was then I get this blue screen that says «machine check exception»

    Green led blinks always & it won't play anything. It shows that it is installed.

    I update my firmware too for this burner of 1.13 to 1.18.

    So I do not know where to go from here. If someone could help that would be great.

  • A service provider send invoices as PDF and for 8 months, I am unable to open them. Company only I have a problem, can anyone help?

    HI trying to access pdf of simple energy service provider bills (have adobeX) and 8 months do not have as a guard, saying that the file is damaged. Company has said that it is my end, but do not know what to do. His single pdf can't open?

    Just got another new copy of the PDF of the same provider and did as you suggested again, the PDF attachment to email click right and save the link on the desktop and then went to Adobe reader and made of the open folder and WOW he opened. Lesson is never open attachment from this provider with the link recording first, then go to Adobe Reader 2nd and opening through Adobe Reader file.

    It is therefore likely to be my system, and if I'm not the process you suggest that before any other process will damage the file at the time that I open it. I will consider this resolution if it never happens again with all the other PDF files sent to me, but he still only has this one supplier. Thank you for your help, cheers, Annie

    Can anyone help. I use Windows 7 and Microsoft 2010 (trial version).

    Hi DonDonaldo,

    1. what windows update did you install?

    2. When was the last time you were able to install updates?

    3. do you have security software installed on the computer?

    Windows Update error80070643 can happen for several reasons. The most common cause is a problem with the .NET Framework is installed on the computer. You can also encounter this error when installing updates for Microsoft Office 2003.

    If you were installing Microsoft Office 2003 updates when you received the error, follow the instructions in the "Microsoft Office 2003" section below. Otherwise, follow the instructions in the section "Windows.NET Framework".

    The .NET framework is a component of Windows that is used to build, deploy, and run programs and applications. Unfortunately, it may be damaged by some programs, viruses or hard drive problems.

    To automatically repair the .NET Framework

    2. in thefile download dialog box, click run, and then follow the steps in the wizard.

    3. open Windows Update by clickingStart , all programsand then clickWindows Update.

    4. in the left pane, clickcheck for updates, and then wait while Windows searches the latest updates for your computer.

    5. If updates are found, clickinstall updates. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    If the previous steps do not solve the problem, you can reinstall .NET Framework manually, but the steps are intended for advanced users. If you are not comfortable performing these steps, ask a friend to help you. You will find the steps in the article toreinstall .NET Framework on the Microsoft Web site.

     

    Microsoft Office 2003

    To resolve this problem, you may need to restart the Office Source Engine (OSE) service and try again to install the latest updates for Office products.

  • I am trying to install a new printer, but I get "due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings? Can anyone help?

    I am trying to install a new printer, and to do that I know I have to disable firewall settings. I try, but I get "due to an unidentified problem, Windows cannot display Windows Firewall settings? Can anyone help?

    I tried to go into Windows and change the settings of the firewall, but I get the same message.

    I also tried to run an update of the Windows security updates, but same message.

    I use Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3

    Any help would be greatly appreciated?

    Thank you

    M

    HI Maria/Winston.Not, trying to be coy but. I've never had close the firewall to load anything. It will be, or at least should invite you to make a choice to leave the program to run or not? Nevertheless.If you have windows activation hurt you firewall can reactivate manually without going through the bugs that you can not. If you click Start and choose the runtime application. Type cmd, and then press ENTER. When the command prompt box appears type "netsh winsock reset" without the quotes. He'll say firewall reactivated and ask for a reboot. Restart the computer and it will be active again. Just trying to help.

    Hi Winston/Hewlit,

    Thank you both for your advice.
    While waiting for your answers, I pushed all sorts of buttons and downloaded all kinds of programs in the hope that I could break the firewall (Hewlit the printer I tried to install says to disable the firewall to install the printer, and then turn it back on?).
    After a reboot, the message 'corrupt windows\system32 etc' file came and asked me to put in the original disc of Windows XP, I did not.
    Cut a long story short, I have now booked for a technician to come out as I'm totally lost.
    Thanks again for your help,
    M

    The mailbox list is divided into categories with such topics on my Mac. When you position the cursor on one of these positions (with the exception of the mailboxes), you should see the Word display / hide it on the right. Click view, if that's what you see.

    In the category of the mailboxes, the mailboxes are arranged in groups, such as Inbox. To the left of each group is a small tip of arrow. If the arrow points to the right, click it so that it points downwards.

    Also note that you may need to scroll the list of mailboxes upwards or downwards to see it all.
