HP Code Purple: in it for free money at the expense of it’s loyal customers


Getting the Code Purple error after re-installing WIndows on your HP?nohp

Chalk it up to greed!  Here is the answer:

Code Purple is a problem exclusive to HP’s, the easiest solution is to avoid them. However, it’s already too late for you as it was for me. Basically it’s an attempt to force you to pay them to service or upgrade your PC, or if you didn’t learn the first time, buy another. Here is the most concise answer I found, tried to translate into plain english.


***Windows 7 code purple or Windows Vista code purple***

With the code purple error on the screen, press shift+f10 (the shift key and the F10 key (at the top of the keyboard) at the same time) to open a little screen called a command prompt. (So, you get a little black screen with white text that says something about your Windows verison first and a little ways down you’ll see “C:\>”. It’s all ready for you to start typing.)
Type the following line, just as you see it here…

notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd

so it will look like this

C:\>notepad C:\hp\bin\checkdmi\checkdmi.cmd

Press Enter.
You will see the text for the file listed in a window using a simple text editor.
Go to the beginning of the text. Press enter to make a space. Type this…

goto cleanup

So, whatever comes after, the first line looks like this…

goto cleanup

Save the file and exit notepad and restart your PC. You are good to go.


Please repost like crazy.

Restaurant Meals Made Easy

Don’t you just love a Restaurant Meal cooked at home?  I know the ambiance of the restaurant is important, and so is the staff that cleans up afterward, but when you wanna have a great meal at home and have run out of ideas, I love the idea of duplicating those favorites from going out.  Take your favorite dish and add your own spin on the heat level, or switch chicken out for shrimp.  This is the way we customize our love of restaurant meals while making them our own.

Healthy Coconut Oil

cracked-coconut-oil-spashing-out_article_newEver wonder why Islanders are so healthy?  Probably because of the nutritional value in the coconut oil that they consume daily.  Healthy Coconut Oil is a wonderful alternative to butter or even Olive Oil.  It melts at a very low temperature (76 degrees fahrenheit), and while it does not do well in high temps, it is a nice clean oil for eggs, shrimp, and any other mild cooking on the stove-top.  Try it in your coffee!  Seriously, Grass-fed butter and coconut oil added to fresh ground coffee is another new fad that has some real health benefits, even though it sound weird, it actually has some benefits to your daily intake of bad foods.

The new Era in Healthy foods

Taking back our kitchens has been a difficult thing at best.  We want what we want, but “they” tell us this or that is bad to eat, only to retract the statement decades later. Facing years of avoiding nutritional goodness, we have to make decisions for our families.  There are basics to follow when it comes to nutritional value, and there are also complexities.  A recent fad is the Paleo Diet, in which you eat the basic food groups in the amounts that your body was designed to consume them.  Skipping all of the complexities of modern diet plans and numbers associated with things that end in glycorides or have the word complex in them.  Much has been written about the Paleo Diet and much more will be written.  However, with the basics in mind, this seems to be the path we all want to know more about.  Why do we have to complicate things?  It is our nature to do so, and often enough, it is useful.  But really, let’s take a look around, some spend way too much time at the gym and others too much time worrying about the content of their food.  Most of our diets are developed because we have to counteract the garbage that is added to our foods to preserve for shipping and storage, and others because of the nature of the products that are fed to the animals that produce what we eat.  Let’s get back to basics and natural ingredients.

Facebook aquires whatsapp for s cool 19 billion….

Facebook Inc., won European Union antitrust approval to buy messaging service WhatsApp Inc. for about $19 billion, its biggest acquisition to date.

What is whatsapp, from their homepage this information is the basis for their app, it is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

Sounds similar to what they already have in place now for their messenger, but it adds the video and audio media messages, another step for facebook…Can we even rememfb imgber life before facebook?
