Even though the instructions for Printer Samsung CLP550 says that it should be removed upwards, there is a small plastic above imaging unit which should be removed first. Otherwise it gets broken during unit pulling out. Instructions do not say nothing about that small plastic coat.

after replacing both imaging unit and transfer unit, printer continuosly report "replace imaging unit" and "replace transfer belt" on the display. On the other side of instructions it is said that it should be reset.

Blank screen after xp splash screen

Problem: Laptop Asus V6000 has no screen after XP logo boot process

This time, removing battery didn't help. System restore also. Safe mode works ok. Reinstalling software for graphic's card, reducing start-up items, scan for viruses and spyware..didn't help.
Also, chkdsk /r from safe mode didn't help - it just created more problems because it wasn't able to boot neither to safe mode afterwards. With system restore it was as before cheking disk.
Chkdsk /r from bootable CDs also didn't help. Although some web forums claim that windows repair won't help- it solved this time.
Windows repair - not by console option but when Instal, choose R for repair.
