I’ve Windows 7 Professional installed on my home computer. It has a weird problem, a “random” wake up from sleep. It often wakes up just seconds after being shut down, or wakes up in the very middle of the night when nobody is around the PC. What’s going on?

Thank you for your HP2840 tips. I have another question. I am frequently, exactly once a week, getting a UAC (User Account Control) dialog box that asks for permission to run hprbupdate.exe on Windows 7. This popup even made sometimes a full-screen game or Windows Media Center crashes. I always deny access for this popup since I don’t know if it’s safe. What is it and how to get rid of it?

I have a laptop with Windows 7. I installed an old VISTA compatible program that uses Java RE. When I run it the video color mode is modified from Aero to Basic. I cannot change it back by the Desktop -> Personalize -> Windows Color menu.
I know that Windows 7 has an Aero troubleshooting tool to find and fix such a problems with transparency and then enable and turn on the Aero support but this tool does not work. How to force Windows 7 to enable Aero again? Is there a way to disable Windows automatically “adjusting performance” by switching my color theme back to Basic?

How to distribute and install iPhone package for Windows 7 testers, and what do we have to do?

Question: I bought an HP Color Laserjet 2840 for almost $900 last year while I was running Windows XP PRO on my PC. I have been printing and scanning via LAN connection. In January I purchased a brand new desktop with Windows 7. The original software doesn’t work. I’m now very concerned that HP has not developed a Windows 7 x32 or x64 driver and software solution for this expensive office hardware. Where can I find the HP Color LaserJet 2840 Software for my 32 bit Windows 7 to be able to scan and print?
