Why print alignment page every time you start?

Recently, my printer HP (Photosmart C3180) started printing a page of alignment every time that I turn it on. This seems to be a cynical way for HP to sell more ink, because my printer has no alignment problem. The alignment page wasting my paper, waste a ton of ink I have to pay for and wasting my wait time to perform another task, deal with the sheet of waste and waste time more often when I have to buy ink. I searched through all the instructions and installed Help topics and find nothing that even talking about alignment each time you start.


Most probably the alignment page is printed on every reboot due the alignnment process is not entirely complete.

Try to complete the alignment process by following the steps below:


Alignment must also contain black, yellow, Magenta and Cyan as the example below, any color missing due to the low or empty ink cartridge can cause the alignment to fail

  • Firefox automatically opens the addon page every time you start

    I knew the App market/flue virus on my computer, so I got rid of him--or so it seems. Now every time I turn on or restart your computer, Firefox opens automatically, about: newaddon? ID = {64d64833-9296-421b-a362-83cfbd6291b6}, and the name of the addon shows empty; a few seconds later it closes automatically. I knew that this url has to do with the App market. But when I open Firefox, once again, it is as if nothing happened. Wherever it happened, there is no accident report on this point, despite the many times. I tried to scan my computer several times thereafter with no luck. There is no user.js file, and I deleted all of the extension and a driving-related program.

    I found the solution! It turns out that my computer put adware so she would go to Firefox at startup. Now, when you go to your normal Windows startup entry things, it is said that Firefox, nothing else.

    Then, I installed CCleaner and looked at startup entries there. In the Firefox section not only was it the program, but also the URL it redirects me. I deleted it, restarted, and it worked!

    Now, for what is BackgroundContainer.dll... ^^;

    I downloaded CCleaner from a site named Bleeping Computer. I think my mistake was CNET Download, which is a shame, because I always thought that the site was honorable and trustworthy. But don't be fooled... MyWOT.com said CNET's is more than sure. Bleeping Computer, however, is much safer and confidence. Actual

  • HP Pavilion dv2700 laptop displays the message "system CMOS checksum failed" every time you start

    Hi @all,

    I have a HP Pavilion dv2700 - kh933ea laptop computer #abv (it is a HP Pavilion dv2799ee Special Edition Entertainment Notebook PC to be exact) that displays the message "system CMOS checksum failed. Press F1 to continue"every time you start the system. My OS is Windows 7 / 32 bit.

    Then I updated my BIOS to version 2.4e, 01-dec-08 Phoenix (the SMBIOS version remained the same before 2.4), but the issue is not resolved. I have attached a screenshot for processor and BIOS versions.

    Can someone guide me on how to solve this problem?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    I don't see the screenshot of your post attachments. Please repost them.

    This error message means that WHAT BIOS is damaged. You will need to have the BIOS flashed in a mobile shop, repair a BIOS or an HP Service Center. Do a search online with Google or Bing repair for a BIOS.  If you keep trying to update the BIOS there will come a time where everything you have a black screen.

  • Every time you start, my 4 monitors rearrange their order - it is not included on the desktop

    Recently, I downloaded several updates to Windows Vista.  Among them have been updated for my NVIDIA GeFroce 6200 display THE and NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller.  Restarts, 2 of my 4 screens would not appear.  By checking Device Manager, there was a mistake with the controller who controlled the 2 monitors.  The failure of two attempts to restore to a previous download time.  Then I downloaded a driver for the controller by mistake and was able to resume all 4 screens.

    However, when the computer reboots, monitors have been rearranged in order on my desk and a remained dormant.  I can bring to the top of the screen 4 by extending to the desktop under display and, at the same time settings, change the location of my primary monitor.  However, I don't want to do it every time I start my computer.  Also, all my icons was reorganized.  Any ideas how I can stabilize my understanding of monitor on my desk?

    Hi Wandwinc,

    We faced such issues and others such as the screen resolution changes at each restart, some BSOD etc a few recent updates released by Nvidia for their graphics cards.

    I suggest you restore to an earlier version display driver and check what is happening.

    If this helps you fix until the question, let not install, update the drivers from windows update as well, they are compeltely checked by Nvidia.
    I suggest contact you Nvidia if possible.


  • (Legitimate) -Pop-up Windows every time you start Firefox

    So, lately every time I start Firefox, the new browsing session retrieves the pop-up windows during previous sessions (since the last time or even some of love it, three days ago), I long closed down. My boot option was always "show my windows and tabs from last time ' who used to do exactly this: pick up the tabs I had open or start with a new blank tab if I had opened. Now, however, whenever I open FIrefox I get different windows of previous sessions.
    The problem here is that this doesn't SEEM to be a malware issue because I don't get weird ad/questionable windows but "legitimate" pop ups I me remember I started personally is to say a photo or an image of a trusted site that opened in a new window or a help section on amazon.com , etc.
    This is a first and as you can imagine it has become very annoying. I use Firefox 25.0.1.
    Any ideas? Thank you!

  • Since the 8.0.1 update every time you start Firefox POPs a box asking if I want to install Java Quick Starter 1.0. I say always Yes, but the next time he asks me the same question. Why?

    Go to the Control Panel, double-click Java. In the Java Control Panel, select the Advanced tab the + various front and uncheck the box Java Quick Starter to remove the add-on. Restart firefox.

  • Firefox ask you useless master password every time you start

    When he started, Firefox asks unnecessarily my master password every time. My homepage (Google Finance) does not require a password. This occurs in SafeMode as well. It's annoying and time consuming. I X-out the main 10 seconds password request window after I start Firefox. Why would he do that? ... Firefox not used to do this.

    You use Sync?

    The synchronization used in Firefox 34 version then use password manager to store the name (e-mail) and password to use to connect to the synchronization server.

    Earlier versions of Firefox used to store these data in the signedInUser.json file in the profile folder, but the current version only stores the sessionToken in this folder and need the password for the password manager.

    My Mac is finally working properly with CC - but with a very helpful person of Apple, not Adobe.

    Because I didn't know what else to do, I went to our local Apple store today to get my checked MacAir and make sure that it wasn't a problem to Apple Mac. After an hour of trial, they discovered it was certainly a problem of Adobe and is NOT a Mac problem. Even uninstalling and installing twice in front of me Adobe CC returned to the top with errors. We ended up removing everything related to CC, including removing all preferences of old Adobe Adobe programs, as well as currentsand start again. Then CC arises with a new Application message handler and made me install before giving me a message that Indesign errors and uninstall again while I was at Apple. What I did. Then I went home to complete the installation. I ended up just now to reinstall all the programs CC I use for the 5th time with this new CC Application Manager and everything works now.

    There was something really wrong in the file "Adobe", but whether the Application Manager, or no, I don't know.

    I have nothing but praise for aid Apple staff gave me beyond the normal and wish Adobe could give the same kind of services. (I can't possibly go back to Apple with this problem.) I phoned and recorded my problem with CC with Adobe After days of my own tests on July 11. It's now July 16 and I got an email tonight asking me to designate a time for them to contact me. It's too late. I can't work like this solo. If I can't work, I cannot be paid and losing customers. I really thought that CC was supposed to be the best and I got Adobe products for so long I lost count of the years.

    In any case, my CC works now.
