Answers :

If you see the boot screen, then it is a problem with your operating system (windows)
\015\012If you do not see the boot screen, then it is the power supply or the motherboard isn't working.
\015\012If it turns green but you never see the screen come on, then it may be the video or the monitor.
\015\012If it does go directly to blinking amber, it is probabbly the power supply. It should only take a little while for a computer person to plug in another power supply and test it.
\015\012You can actually take a power supply out of someone elses computer and plug it in (don't even have to mount it in the computer)
\015\012Plug in the motherboard plug(s) and the hard drive only, then attempt to start.
\015\012If it does work, it is your power supply, if not then it is your motherboard.

Perhaps this is an elementary question, and reflects my ignorance, but I don't think so. I'd appreciate help. When I use Fine Reader 9 to convert an image to MS Word, some of the letters -- lots of them -- show in a blue background, i.e., highlghted in blue. I cannot find any way to get rid of this blue highlight, either by any command in FR9 or in Word. I have tried to get rid of this blue highlight by converting the text to WordPerfect, but that does not help, and there is nothing I can do in


I don't know much about Abby FineReader but I have a hunch it is failing to recognize all of the text in your document. So the text in MS Word with the blue background is actually a graphic and not text at all.I also think if you save th ... ABBYY Software House ABBYY FineReader Professional 9.0 Full Version for PC
