  • 1. Enable 32-bit disk access in BIOS of Pavilion a450n?
    I have an 8-month-old HP Pavilion a450n desktop computer. This is a P4 3 GHz, 512 MB, 140 GB machine running WinXP SP2. I have noticed that 32-bit disk access is disabled in the BIOS. I was wondering.... * is it safe to enable 32-bit disk access? * will it get me any performance boost? * if the answer to the above is "yes," why does HP ship with this feature disabled? Thanks, - Bob
  • 2. F1703 monitor blanking out
    My wife and I both have HP computers with F1703 flat panel monitors. The monitors will go blank without warning. The power light still says blue, indicating it is NOT in power saving mode (yellor / amber is power saving). Turning the monitor off and on helps sometimes, but it may go right back out in 5 seconds. Unplugging the power from the monitor then plugging it back in does the trick. The monitors will do this about 2 times a day, more if used more. What is wrong? It was just happening to one monitor, now both of them. They are about 11 months old. Tom

    I have a HP Scanjet 5100C that has started making a ratcheting noise and will not pass the internal test. I have read, installed updates, uninstalled, tweaked and turned blue in the face. Does any one know how to re-calibrate the scanner, have a suggestion, a manual, or a solution? Thanks, Doug

    My HP 5500 is hooked to lpt1. Here's the error message: Printers Folder, "There was an error found when printing the document "c:\millerlr\dwg\colors.dwg Model (1)" to LPT1:. Do you want to retry or cancel the job?" Under Win2k Pro I then began the HP troubleshooting wizard.

Pentium III 733, Windows98SE, IE 6, Printer: HP Deskjet 970 Cxi, Netgear 
PCI Adapter FA311, ADSL Modem Alcatel Speed Touch 510

ADSL works fine, and the printer also works fine when not printing online.

But when we are online and try to print a page from a website, the 
printer starts printing maybe up to one page and then the whole system 
crashes/reboots without any warning. After the reboot there is 
information that there's something in the printer's waiting line. 
Decision either to cancel or to print in RAW.

The crash also happens, when we are online and try to print something 
from Word or Word Pad.

We have already installed the latest driver for the hp deskjet 970 Cxi, 
but that didn't help. And as I said the printer works fine when we are 
not online. And Norton 2005 says there are no viruses.

Appreciate any information, thanx

Peter Sch.

are you using an USB DSL modem? If yes, try to remove your printer drivers
completely and reinstall. If you're a little bit more advanced user you
could monitor the files that get installed with printer driver and modem
and change them one by one to see which one causes the troubles.

why is it that all people having problems always have something from Norton
installed? :-) *hint*

I could imagine that either a driver overwrote an essential system file
with a version that causes the crashes or the DSL modem is simply
incompatible but without further investigation it remains pure speculation.

Only solution I can think of right now is to do a fresh installation of

I am not using a usb adsl modem. It's the ethernet alcatel speed touch 
510. But the deskjet 970 cxi printer is connected to a usb port.

A friend just informed me that there is a known problem with win98se and 
USB devices when you are online with ADSL (ethernet). So he advised me 
to deinstall the printer and reinstall with parallel connection.

I'll let you know if it works.

well, of course :->

never heard of such a problem but since that's another option I think it
wouldn't hurt to just try out...

BTW: there are a bunch of PPPoE drivers out there (if that's what you're
using in Austria, not sure though)

OK, good luck!

Deinstalling the printer (usb) and reinstalling with parallel connection 
did the trick. Everything is working fine.

As for Norton Internet Security and mixed WAN & LAN environment: I used to
have the same problem at home if I dared to switch on my USB ADSL modem
after the LAN switch. For some reason, the personal firewall would then
block most trafic to the LAN (probably assuming that it would be hostile, I
use fixed 10.x.x.x IP addresses for my LAN). I finally changed something in
advanced settings to allow the LAN to be trusted all the time and so far, no
more problems.

Good thing, as it turned out that printing over the network goes quite a bit
faster than over the parallel port.

I hope this helps,

Hi everybody.

A friend of mine give me two HP calculators he dont'use anymore: an HP-28S 
and an HP-17BII. Including my HP-49G+, now I have 3 HP calculators that are 
able to print (on a "grand total" of 6 HP calculators). I would like to 
print something but I don't want to spend too much (my wife can't 

Now the questions:

1. Are some printers out there compatible with the 3 calcs?

2. Do you know if is there a IR printer server that can be connected to an 
external printer (USB, parallel, RS232, etc.).

3. Do know if is possibile to use a PC as a printer gateway for the 3 

Do you have some suggestions?

I am new in hp-ux and I have already a "big" issue I am trying to work

We have a HP-UX 11.11 server which acts as a print server with several
>(> 20) emote and network printers configured on it (we are NOT
using HP Distributed Print ervice). In addition, we have 3 other
HP-UX 11.11 server which act as db, file nd application server. Now
my task is to make those network and remote printer also available to
the ther server. 
Now, as I see I have 3 options:

) Declare each printer on all other server just like on the print
cons: time consuming, changes must be applied to 4 instead of only one
server, not very legant

) Write a script which cp and updates all configuration files on
the remaining 3 erver.
cons: very fault-prone and hard to realise

) Configure the 3 other server to forward all requests directly to
the main print server.

I prefer option 3. It's the most elegant but I'm not sure if it's
possible at all. Crux on the matter is that I didn't configure/install
any of the server myself to know where the roblems are.

I really appreciate any help and I'm looking forward to your



5.HP5SI tray prints to back/how to print to front

Is there a setting for the HP5SI that allows tray print jobs to print
to the FRONT of the paper?  Currently, it prints to the back.  We have
large print jobs with numbered papers that are preordered in ascending
order.  Printouts to the back mean that every page has to be flipped
over.  Any assistance greatly appreciated.  Please post replies to
