My mothers pc has been hit with ransom ware pretending to be micosoft Security Essentials (888-841-2933). I have removed the harddrive and installed a new one. I need to install a clean bios before installing a fresh version of the OS. HP doesn't have the bios or any software or drivers for me to download and install a fresh verion of the bios to clean up any corruption on it. Where do I find the bios to install before installing the OS? Thanks

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

This problem doesn't happen only in chipset drivers. The same problems happens with "Networking: LAN (Ethernet)" and other entries as well. This means I can't see the possible downloads, even though it shows there are such downloads (it displays Chipset (5), meaning there are 5 possible downloads) Are all the L420 the same? I don't know if all the downloads that are relevant to L420 are relevant to my laptop (with a specific serial number).When searching for L420 & Chipset in Lenovo website I'm finding the following download:https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/fr/en/downloads/DS01...

(Please pardon my redundancy - I have posted this to the Customer Care Board and Client Service forums - just hoping to correct what I hope was an accidental change in support policy.)
This is not a technical comment but it is a comment about Dell's Technology Support. Recently the support site for laptops, and I presume other areas though I have not checked, was revised to change its structure. In the process many items were removed notably having to do with drivers for older systems. Even if a system is past warranty that does not remove the responsibility for Dell to continue to provide the most recent (even if old) drivers especially since the cost of doing so is trivial. This is especially the case when Dell is the only source for specific drivers. A specific example is a Dell Vostro 3700 laptop which uses the embedded GPU in the CPU as well as outboard nVidia GPU; the hybrid video architecture is such that NVidia provides no driver and re-directs users to Dell's site. In the case of this specific model, most of the drivers that were present a month ago are now gone.
Dell laptops have two things going for them - good products at a good price and a great support site. This has prompted me to continue focusing upon Dell - e.g. two new 5759's in 2017, and to recommend Dell to colleagues and friends. I have had recent occasion to review some very old systems on HP's support site - all relevant drivers continue to be available. I strongly recommend that Dell c... Read more

I ordered an AMD Phenom ll x 4 (AM3) for my PC with a Pegatron Corp NARRA5 Motherboard (AM2+) and I've heard that you need specific BIOS updates to support AM3. Since I've never updated the BIOS for the motherboard that is in a PC from April 2010 and Pegatron is probably dead, can you find any BIOS updates if I need them? (PS: the splash screen is a Compaq logo and says the version # is 5.55. Will that update support AM3?)

Didn't know how to title this issue...basically, here's the deal: I have a school web site, on [email protected], which has a maximum of 10mb on the site. This is a constant battle trying to keep it under the 10 mgs, with all the photos and whatnot I like to put up there. I was thinking that I still have another three or four sites on my account; why don't I set up one site which is just the images, and link it to the other site. Wouldn't it be transparent? I mean, if I set up a hyperlink on the main site, wouldn't visitors just cruise back and forth at will without any hassle? And that way, I'd have much more space for images.

Please advise...it seems too easy...am I missing something?

Thanks!

p.s. I use front page 2002 from office xp suite (professional )
 

A:thinking of setting up web site just for images to support another site

I don't think you're missing anything. This is common practice. Most of the images on this page came from another site. Ads almost always do. There's nothing that says that the image links in your html can't load images from elsewhere. The ability to bring many disparate objects from various sources together on one web page is the reason html was designed the way it was.

Sounds like you have a good solution to your problem.

In attempting to prepare a trifold document I want to has a background color on just one of the columns. When I click on "background" the whole page is filled.

A:Looking For Support Site For Word 2000

I'm assuming you're talking about columns in a table, right?
On the main Word menu you have a Table pulldown. Everything related to tables is there.

Here's another way: select a column of the table, right click, select Shading and borders (or very similar formatting command), pick the color and you're good to go.
I'm not in front of 2000 right now, but it might be select the column and then Format.

Selecting the column is the roughest part, as often either a whole table or just one cell gets selected, so you need to do a bit of mousework to get it right

If you're not talking about a table, but a column of a 3-column page, then I have no clue. Perhaps you can just select the text in that column and give it some background or highlight.

I purchased a P50 a couple months ago and haven't had much time to do a whole lot with it until the last month.  Now I've been using it every day and had had a significant amount of Win10 crashes on it.  What I determined today is that in SSD slot 1 I have a brand new NVME and the slot itself is sporadically not working correctly.  If I let the machine cool down I can boot it up and use slot 1, however once it's operating Windows will crash under a high load where it gets warm.  Right now it won't see any M.2 in slot 1 - and I've tested 3 drives in both slots now and have narrowed it down. My first question is - is this something that's been happening or noticed with the P50 line? Second question is - does the chat on Lenovo support just not exist?  I've tried Chrome, Firefox and Edge in Windows 10 and Chrome and Firefox in OS X to no avail.  The support site just fails to even remember the serial I put in under my assets and when I do get to the page all I see is this: http://imgur.com/B1rWbSU Super frustrating as I have time right now to open a ticket and apparently will have to call.  I fail to see how the site is operational at all.

Hi all, Ive followed the instructions given to me by Tech support and gone to the link listed under my Service Tag where there is the option to download my Windows 8.1 ISO image along with instructions which Ive printed off.
I will be installing from a USB flash drive and the instructions to create the bootable USB installation media are straight forward and easy to follow using Diskpart. Then simply Mount the image and copy all files over onto the USB flash drive.
Im a little confused though when reading the instructions under How to Reinstall Windows 8.1. there are two options PCs with BIOS boot mode and PCs with UEFI boot mode. I purchased my Inspiron laptop late 2015 so it has UEFI boot mode with Secure Boot. Under the UEFI boot instructions it talks about disabling Secure Boot and for USB installation media set Boot order to Internal ODD device. I don't understand..a USB flash drive isnt an Internal ODD device as far as im aware.
So without doing anything to System Setup Ive tried inserting a flash drive, tapping F12. It says UEFI boot mode and Secure Boot is enabled and the flash drive is listed second one down underneath my Toshiba hard disc. It seems to me that I have to follow the instructions for PCs with BIOS boot mode even though my system is UEFI boot mode!! Am I missing something here?

I had free time this weekend and decided to pull an old PC out of the closet to trouble shoot it and get it running again. Once it appeared all the hardware was functioning as it should, I decided to slap XP MCE 2005 on it. That install went just fine. Before installing anything else, I set it for automatic updates only to learn all support for XP ended in April 2014. I then tried to install a 3rd CD that is an XP MCE 2005 Updates disc, but it wanted .NET framework and SP1 installed first.

Am I totally hosed, or is there a way to get the decade of updates along with SP2 and MS Essentials? I hate the thought of having to say goodbye to XP MCE forever.

A:Can I still get the XP updates now that MS won't support?

Interesting question. You should at least the updates that were availabe until they stopped the support - unless they shut their servers down.

Let us know what shows up in terms of updates. It may be quite a long procedure. But if that doews not work, you can always put a linux distro on that PC. I recommend Mint Mate. Here is my demo on how it works.

Earlier, I had bookmarked a website listing Microsoft and Windows downloadable updates, for what seemed to be March or maybe April, 2016.  That bookmarked site is this:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/search/DownloadsDrillinResults.aspx?FORM=DLC&ftapplicableproducts=%5e%22Windows%22&sortby=-availabledate&q=&first=81
 
 
Checking that same site tonight, the listing showing a page button at the bottom as "11", shows the issue dates to be from September, much more recent than when the site was bookmarked earlier this year.  I am HOPING that clicking through to 9 or 8, or clicking up through 12 or 13 or 14, that the page would display downloadable updates for October 2016.  If each listing entry really links to a separate downloadable installable file, that we could look for all the Vista updates and install each of them separately. 
 
I do not remember how I found the site, but must have been through some searching with first search engine and then through the Microsoft Site.  More recently while trying to follow links on the MS site, I have been unable to find anything like the page showing all these September updates.  I'm also surprised that no member on this board has mentioned or suggested the site earlier.
 
 
I will click through to look for any October updates and see if any are downloadable.  (and seemingly, Internet Explorer 9 WILL NOT download any Windows standalone installer update file... Read more

Hi Guys,
I am running Windows XP Media Centre Edition Sp2. When I try to go to 'windows updates' site I get an 0x8DDD0018, then when I try the fixes in 'services.msc' I get another error 1058. Have looked for answers everywhere and do not want to try anything I am not sure of. PLEASE HELP, I am worried about not getting the latest security updates.
Thanks in advance - Steve
 

A:Solved: No windows updates site!

I assume the fix in services.msc was enabling BITS as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/910337

Also, can you verify Remote Procedure Call (RPC) startup type is Automatic and the status shows Started.
