When saving excel as DBF 3 (dBASE III) *.dbf, characters are missing

Problem: Some characters are missing in dbf file

It happens because when document in excel is saved (save as: DBF 3 (dBASE III) *.dbf) , there should be enough space in cells.
Later, if these data are imported in program such as print labels, characters will be missing because they are already missing in converted data from excel.

HP LaserJet M1522 scanner problem

Problem: When multiple pages are scanned, it comes out with vertical lines

First page scanned is ok but others are scrambled.

Solution is here:

hpiscn.dll should be copied here:

c:\Program files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\

even though that file exists with same size and date!

Reinstaling, firmware update didn't help. Only this replacement did.

Toshiba laptop hangs after recovery

Problem: Toshiba freeze at "Applying final configuration"

Toshiba is at that stage already in Vista OS. The "Applying" screen can be minimized. It hangs here because Wireless mode was ON - it should be switched OFF and then restart laptop in order to continue installation. The switch is at the front side on the left, beneath "Satellite".

It will reinstal Intel PRO set where it got stuck, and continue with Nvidia, utility, camera etc with a few automatic restarts.
