After hours of troubleshooting we finally came to the root of the problem. The HP 700-215xt was not made for Windows 7 Ultimate, they ship with Professional Home, which I wiped when I installed Ubuntu. Not sure why, but apparently Windows 7 Ultimate requires different drivers than Windows 7 Home, and since HP ships with Home, the suggested drivers were not ...

There appear to be quite a few things wrong with this "working" printer. Error 41.5 refers to paper feed errors. That also explains why it jams regularly. This page lists some things you can try. You may need to clean and/or replace various parts in the paper path, starting with the feed rollers. The only mention I found for 79.x errors refer to a faulty ...

The LED will likely be blinking a specific pattern. HP suggests the following Identify the number of blinks or beeps When there is a start-up problem and you see LED lights on the keyboard blink a few times (between 1 and 8 blinks), or hear a series of beep tones (between 1 and 6 tones), do the following actions. There is very little you can do to resolve ...

Your laptop was shipped with a Windows 8.1 Pro license that was legally downgraded by the OEM which exercised what Microsoft terms downgrade rights. However, the OEM does this using special volume license keys that you cannot use yourself. Instead, if you wish to reinstall Windows 7 Professional yourself, you will either need to: Contact the manufacturer ...

I work with KVM switches from time to time and they seem very touchy and break pretty easy. Something that I noticed is when you are messing with the cable configuration, and suddenly nothing works, a power cycle usually fixes the issue. A lot of KVM switches don't have a dedicated power cable, if this is the case, then unplug all the cables from it and then ...

This laptop can be customized to a more respectable 1.4GHz A6 processor (a quad-core chip with an improved graphics processor), 8GB of RAM and a 500GB HDD ($530). As functional as it is, the extreme measures taken to keep the cost down are painful to live with, at least on the tested model.

There are several relevant points. Form Factor Form factor is not a driving variable. All else being equal, the service life is based on the quality of the parts, which is reflected in device price. Specific manufacturers could theoretically use better or worse quality parts for different form factor hardware, assuming that one form factor needs to stand ...

Pretty easy to do so. Connect the USB drive to your ESXi Server (you should try wether USB 3.0 works, if not fallback to USB 2) Open your VM Configuration, click on add device and add an USB controller (type doesn't matter as far as I know, all my VMs have EHCI+UHCI though) Save and open the Configuration Dialog again, in add device you should now see usb ...

I know it's an old thread but I just found the answer. On my system (Dell) there are several disks, one of them has remnants of the old Windows installation and another one has current working Win installation. I thought as long as my active Win HD is on the 0 SATA connector I'm good, however it's not the case. In BIOS there is settings for boot order ...

I've had excellent results using Costco refilled ink cartridges for my Canon MX 882 AIO printer. The printer does constantly display "low ink" messages which I simply ignore (as advised by almost any cartridge refill company). I just wait until the print quality diminishes and then get the cartridge refilled. The cost is less than 1/2 of OEM cartridges ...

If you have a .exe file to install the drivers, you can install in xp mode, I did this on an old sony vaio that didn't have a display driver for 7. It worked like a charm

Before throwing it out the window, it's worth taking a pencil eraser and rubbing off the ink head contacts. Ambient humidity whether you live near the ocean or if your particular printer was mildly defective... can tarnish copper contacts. A pencil eraser rubbed as gently as you'd erase a word off paper can rejuvenate electronic devices from cell phone ...
