A good friend of mine dropped off his computer because he was having problems. To make a long story short, I was able to get it going but a few of the programs do not work. I believe the registry is missing the information to get these programs to work.
Envoy & Word Perfect no longer work. As a result, the following documents can't be opened. Here is the list of Document files:
[.NTX, .DBF, .MEM, .FRM, .DBT, .NIX, .DNA].
I was able to use Microsoft Office "Word" to recover the "Word Perfect" Files [WPD] but other than that I'm left with the rest of the information that I need to get fixed. I'm thinking that Microsoft "Excel" & "Access" can open the above mentioned Documents listed.
He no longer has the "Coral" Program Disc, I have most of the Programs he had, re-installed back to where they needed to be but I'm stumped.
He has not backed up his work. He think's that just backing up any "Update's" example: [Work on house#3] to USB & Disc's. So when I return the computer this week, he'll be dead in the water.
If anyone can help me out here, it would really help.
But here is one thing that I've found: Sometimes his screen will go Black with No Signal. I removed the memory from a "Free" upgrade I did 3 months ago & I think that I took care of it. I'm hoping that the problems he is/was having is because of hardware changes. I also think that the App drivers were really never loaded properly. Here is his Board, memory & Graphics Card, along with what I loaded on the computer & Software:
Windows XP Home Edition [updated on 1/18/2011 with all updates] So he's current.
Asus- X-Series: A7V8X-MX-UAYZ [A7V8X-MX]
Asus 8x's AGP Card: V-356.
Memory: 1 sided 256mb x's 2: Kingston.
Program I installed: Microsoft Office 2007 Professional Edition;
Thanks & look forward to some educated help. Dan I'm not a "Newbie" but I sure feel like one:bow:
