CD won't play 12-14-09
I'm trying to play an audio CD on my work computer. This is the first time
I've done it. I'm getting visuals (the weird fractal things on the Windows
Media Player screen) but no audio. I have been able to get audio from
playing videos on the internet before. I tried downloading the AC3 codec, no
success. Any help is appreciated.

I have finished a 200+ slide Presentation (family history) using PowerPoint
2003, file size 119MB. It is for packaging on CD and showing on other
computers. Not for the web. I want to include on the CD a voice narration,
which I guess will take around 300 minutes to read out from my text.
1. Will the narration play on other computers if I link it to the slides
(not embed it)?
2. Do you think I'll be able to fit the whole thing onto a CD, using normal
3. If not, how can I put the Presentation on a flash drive, or do I need
special software to do that?

I thought my computer crashed. In fact, the fact is I had corrupted Window
files and the place I took my computer to be repaired, they had to restore my
computer back to the point when I first purchased it (August 2008-Toshiba).
Before they did a restore I asked them if they could try to find and copy my
pst files (contacts is what I need the most but would like my calendar also).
They were able to locate them before they did the restore. They copied them
back on my computer but not in Office.
I went to where they copied my files and did a copy and paste into the

Before I saw the solutions in the newsgroup for resetting the system
password, I deleted the SY02400 hoping to get a chance to re-setup the system
password. Now I get the message "System password file is missing." I've
tried recreating it with File > Maintenance > SQL create table, but no luck.
I also tried the SQL script "update sy02400 set PASSWORD = convert (binary,
'')", but with no luck. I'm using MSDE. I can't restore because I get the
missing file message when I choose restore.

Every time I download templates to print CD/DVD labels, I see only one label
on a small sheet of paper. When I go to the office supply store, I only have
the option of buying paper with the standard two-label design. How do I
create and edit CD labels where I can work with both onscreen and then print
both at once (different top from bottom) in such a way that everything is
aligned with the cutout sticker labels on the page?
Anytime you need to edit both halves of your label you need to setup the page
manually. Most CD/DVD templates will print two to a page.

We have a problem regarding MS Excel 2003 w. SP2 running Windows XP w.
There is a network drive in our network accessed by roughly 15-20
Users sometimes experience getting a rather interesting error message.
The error message states (pardon the rough translation from Norwegian)
"Cannot access ALL fields - filename"
This error message persists, but not permanently. If the user tries to
open the document a few more times it eventually succeeds, and the
document opens. Normally after three tries, sometimes more.
The error message is exclusive to neither user nor computer....Missing some games and accessories

...missing PRORET.msi file.
I am trying to install the office service pack 2 and it

never installed XP Office, just Office 2000 and I can't

Another software requires service pack 2 to be installed
before it will let me install it, so I'm stuck.
