Q: Closing a document in Word without Closing the Program

I am using Windows XP Professional Version 2002. When I close an open document in Word, it closes the whole program. Does anyone know how to fix this. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

One of my hard drives just failed after years of reliable service. A lot of valuable information was lost.

To avoid this in the future, it would be helpful to know just how old a drive is to know when it's time to be replaced.

Is there a program that can tell me when I drive was manufactured?
 

A:A program that shows Manufacture date?

Drive age doesn't really have much to do with 'drive failures'. Time in service increases the risk, but it's not a defining factor either.

The HDD should have a sticker on it showing date of manufacture. I don't know of a program.

Recently sound has not been coming through my speakers, so I tried to plug in headphones and headset but no further luck. I then went into control panel then sound and check the settings on my playback and nothing was touched or muted etc. I then went to the Speakers and Headphones in sound right clicked and pressed test and it said "The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing through this device." but no other applications that I could find that would be using it. My prediction is that having no internet protection for a while and downloading off the internet has caused a virus to cause my audio to become mute, if this is so how would I be able to find this application causing it. AVG isnt picking it up.
 

A:No sound caused by a Virus/Program?

Broni, from the Virus and Malware Removal forum doesn't think it is malware related.

I have downloaded a program called Anomos, it tells me please forward your ports so the program can work, 5061. Ok so I go into my century link modem and it wants a ip address to forward the ports what ip address do I enter?
 

A:How do I port forward the Anomos program?

The LAN address of the system you want the data to go to.

It must always be the same address, so you need to make it so using
Address Reservation on the router OR a static address on the target machine (not recommended for laptops).

I need a smartphone that I can put a document with addresses and phone numbers on and the smartphone will hyperlink the number straight from the document.

I currently use iPhone 3gs and a app (Documents by Savy Soda) and it works: wifi doc to phone; open app; open doc; touch phone number and WaLa! it calls the number

I tried Windows phone thinking with Word and Excel on it, the phone would call from the document. NOT! I sent a file to a friend who has and Android phone and it won't do it either.

I'm not fond of Apple, so my question is:

IS THERE ANY PHONE OUT THERE THAT WILL HYPERLINK PHONE NUMBERS FROM A DOCUMENT?

Moderator note: drgerry, no need to shout.
 

A:Smartphone that will hyperlink phone numbers from document?

Stick with the iPhone then. But I know with Gmail if you open a doc with cell number on it will launch Android phone apk. I haven't tried that with Window smartphone with Gmail.

I have a laptop with the Realtek high definition audio and Dolby home theater installed. After the latest win8.1 update the Realtek program has stopped forwarding the sound through the Dolby program (which it managed to do perfectly before the upgrade). I tried using Viper4Windows too but that didn't work eighter. Is there an option anywhere that will allow me to fix this?

Normally, 99.999% of the time I just shut it down completely but I'd like to know what "sleep" means?
Does that mean if I do so, upon opening the lid it'll be where I left it at?
I notice in Control Panel>Power Options>System Settings whether its on battery or plugged in , it shows sleep.
 

A:Choose What closing the lid does?

I recommend sleeping the laptop if you are gonna use it after you close it within the next few hours. Otherwise shut it down.

Guys, a netbook with this config

A:Can a netbook run MS Word 2007-13 easily?

You would need to define exactly what you mean by big files.

I would say yes as Office 2010 is installed on one of our Netbooks, but that really depend on just how big a file you are referring to.

As well as other specs, like the ms and such. I bought a mouse from China on Ebay for about 8$ new. The specs say its the same as the death adder, but I have my doubts. I am sure its still a good mouse for the price, but Im curious how good is it? I wanna know did they copy paste the death adder specs or did I really get a smoking deal on this mouse?

here is the mouse btw

When I got a new printer, I went to my laptop and try the find printer thing when I clicked on it the window pop up and then another one that said "The Active Directory Domain Service is currently unavailable." Please someone tell me what and how to fix this
 

A:Can't use the find printer program thing

Follow the directions that came with your new printer. Usually you have to first install the driver from the included disc or their website, then at some point you're instructed to plug the printer in with USB cable and power it up. It should then be recognized in Device Manager and show up in Control Panel/Printers, where you can set it to your default printer.

I am helping my uncle built a computer and looking for a gpu which can handle 5 monitors and still have enough power to run a 3d modelling program (dont know the name of it) any ideas?
 

A:Graphics card for five monitors and a demanding program

Running five displays in 2D isn't really demanding at all, its just a case of connectivity. For example, a HD6870 should handle six displays (at least mine does), but dependant on the 3D modelling performance required it changes things dramatically.

You need to consider several things:

1. The connections the displays will actually use, as you'll be using DisplayPort connectors if your adding that many, so converters will need to be considered if the displays don't natively run them.
2. The exact usage of the computer. If its just 3D, and only that, commerical grade (workstation) FirePro GPUs are more than likely a better alternative.
3. Whether you want to run two GPUs in SLI/CF in order to achieve the required capacity to run these displays.
4. An important one...Budget!

It used to be the case (if I remember correctly) that Nvidia GPUs were better optimised for the sort of work your uncle would be using them for. Not sure if its the case now.

Workstation GPUs will have drivers specifically optimised for 3D modelling work, and will be better supported. These are bloody expensive though.

If you want a good all-round GPU with serious horsepower for 3D modelling I'd go with something like a GTX580, or the new GTX680. One problem though, they're both limited to four displays (580 might be three only), so to run five, you'd need a second one in SLI.

Either that, or ditch the fifth display and just run four with a GTX680.

There is a specific software that i would like to install to the Server ans to let it run on all the computers on the network. So,instead of installing it on each computer (time consuming) i need a way to install it on the server and let it run on each other computer.
 

A:Installing program to server

Copy software to a folder on the server
Share the folder over the network
Map the folder as a drive on the workstations
Run the software on the workstations.

This is pretty basic networking.

The software has to be set up so that it can be shared in that way. In most cases you will probably have to install the software on the hard drive and share just the data files over the network. The application has to have that capability.

I'm looking for a little 10-inch laptop for schoolwork and browsing, not gaming or anything intense like that.
Looking for what recommended minimum specs I should be on the lookout for.

I'm considering this little Samsung 10.1" Netbook featuring Intel Atom N455 Processor (N145)
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product...l-atom-n455-processor-n145-n145/10161401.aspx

My local pc folks are selling it for $400 CAD tax included, including $73 upgrade from 1G ram to 4G.
Good price?

I'd rather buy from a local store than purchase online, if not for reliability of purchase and continued support options.
 

A:Recommended specs for a word processing notebook?

What is the ratio between Canada and US when it comes to money? According to that link the system is on sale until 8/11 for $219.00.

The biggest issues for me would be that the Best Buy offer only has a) Windows 7 Starter installed; not even Home Premium, b) no need for 4 gigs if the operating system is only 32-bit because only a 64-bit OS will utilize 4 gigs and more RAM, c) the Intel Atom is slow.

So, IMO, it isn't worth $400 locally as is and again no need for 4 gigs if the OS is 32-bit. Shop around more and search for a Lenovo x120e system.

I use my TI-82 grapics calculator quite a lot (usually for programming), and I'm aving a problem with the variables, primarily the "Y" variable. When I put a store command for a real variable in a program, the calculator stores "0" to it no matter what. The problem usually occurs during the first 30 seconds of program execution. I try entering the command several times, and it still doesn't work right. What I'm mainly worried about is the fact that it hasn't done this when I first bought it.

Will it get worse?
Can I do anything to fix it?
Does this indicate a serious problem elsewhere?

I have a VAIO VPC computer with Windows 7 operating system. I was installing the software for my Palm TX Organizer, and when it came to connecting the device to the computer, I received the message that the system was locating the drivers for the device and then informing me that no drivers were available. When I tried to sync the device through the palm program it will not recognize the presence of the device. I uninstalled and downloaded a new version of the program from the Palm website encountering the same situation when I connected the device to the computer.

I have also experienced this same situation with the installation of Tunes Plus to allow for the uploading of my iPod music onto iTunes on the computer, I continually get a device not present message.

Can anybody out there throw some light on this problem?

Windows doesn't need drivers to detect a Plug and Play device.

A:No internet after program download

It appears the drivers are not installed, or the incorrect drivers are installed, or you have a defective RealTek. Some RealTeks have a switch that must be set. Some RealTek's require updated firmware download to work with VISTA. Firmware and driver updates are always available at the mfg site, but not always easy to find ezactly where they are..
You might also dry a gurgle search for RealTek RTL8101E and for simply RTL8101E drivers or Firmware.

My network has 2 PC's, one of which had XP installed when purchased. The other had Windows 98, and has been recently upgraded to XP. I want to be able to access any file from either machine. On the PC that was upgraded from Win 98, I have set Drive C to be shared. The other PC can access any file, including those in the Program Files folder. It can, for example, run PaintShop Pro across the network, even though it's not installed on that machine.

I have set Drive C on the other PC to be shared, but I cannot access its Program Files folder from the (former) Win 98 PC. I get "Access Denied" messages.

Does anyone know how to allow complete sharing of all files?

A:How do you access "Program Files" folder on a network?

You need to set both share permissions and the file permissions on disk.

No need to specifically share the drives BTW. Windows automatically enables administrative shares in the form of c$ d$ etc.

my C drive is only an 80G and right now 60G of it is full of apps. I rather like these apps and I don't want to uninstall them. Is it possible to actually move the whole folder to my terabyte and just fix the shortcut paths as needed, or is it more complicated than that?
 

A:Is it possible to move your entire program files folder to a seperate volume?

Hi BlackScarlet

Yes, it is possible to do that. It's called ghosting. Acronis and Norton Ghost are two of the best programs on the market for doing this. Good luck!

After booting windows xp fine, and coming up to the desktop, the desktop is stable as well...

however when any program is launched for more than few seconds (trillian, itunes, ut2k4), the computer simply reboots without any warning

tried another HD... same problem. any ideas what could cause this?
 

A:Windows xp continually reboots after any program is launched for a few seconds

Is your pc overclocked? If so, downclock it a little to see if that helps. Have you run a decent virus scanner? A virus could certainly cause the problem you describe. And finally, open the case up and get rid of all dust as this can make the cpu, mobo, graphics card, and memmory overheat which could also cause the problem.

Hope that helps. Rik.

Hi all,
I have a Toshiba Satellite A300-1EI laptop. My question is when I close the screen of the laptop, does the system stop working or is it that the screen simply goes off?
And if I have a task running like virus scan, copying files, or a download scheduler is running, are these tasks stopped or do they still go on even after just closing the screen?
Is this common with laptops of all brands?

thanks

Having problems with an HP Laserjet 1020. It's a USB 2.0 connection to the computer. I updated the drivers to the latest, uninstalled the old driver and installed the new one. Rebooted and still, my printer took forever to print.

I tried various documents, all simple and normally they would print instantly. I opened notepad, typed a line and it took 6 minutes, 20 seconds before the printer activated and printed the document.

Does this sound like a printer problem or a USB port problem? The USB port is a 4-port card I purchased at a computer store and it seems to work fine with all my other devices, like my photo card reader and portable HDs. I even tried the proprietary USB 1.0 port. Same thing.

I have an older Sony computer (2004) with XP Home installed, 512 RAM, Pentium 4. Any suggestions?

Hello!

I already upgraded heatsink to a Zero Therm Nirvana with AS5 but temp doesn't seem to be a problem, I think it's just the fequency and multiplier that I'm trying to use.

A:Help with word document!

Retrieve in it word, then watch the box at the bottom of the screen as you file or save it as a .doc file, then review the ?xml info.

The Document Object Model (DOM) class is an in-memory representation of an XML document. The DOM allows you to programmatically read, manipulate, and modify an XML document. The XmlReader class also reads XML, however it provides non-cached, forward-only, read-only access. This means that there are no capabilities to edit the values of an attribute or content of an element, or the ability to insert and remove nodes with the XmlReader. Editing is the primary function of the DOM. It is the common and structured way that XML data is represented in memory, although the actual XML data is stored in a linear fashion when in a file or coming in from another object.
There is plenty of useful information on xml documents and file structure in the Microsoft knowledge base, or even with a Google search.

I am new to this forum. Does anyone know how to modify a bootable backup program to load RAID drivers and which drivers would work with the program.
I am considering Acronis, Ghost, and Bootitng. They all make bootable CDs or floppies but I dont think any of them will recognize my RAID array.
I have an ABIt VT7 with a motherboard VIA RAID controller. I don't need to see the contents of the RAID partitions just the presence of the drive and the partitions to select for backup. I know this is possible since when I boot, the BIOS shows the raid drives present, but when Acronis boots it does not see them. Any suggestions is appreciated - but please no lectures on failure rates.

Thanks - Lee Gordon
 

A:RAID 0 Backup from boot backup program

Mee Too

Me too,

I purchased Acronis based solely on the consensus of another chat that it would see the disk(s) image and not the independent drives. It doesn't. Even though the bios sees the raid array. Windows sees it only under the device manager but not under file explorer.

Similar for part magic (ver 7 ?), and ghost. Maybe there's a later version of these programs which works. I am trying to move an image to the raid but the problem is the same regardless, namely hardware raid on the 680i is not complete and additional software is required to see the image and not the individual drives.

I too am very interested in this problem.

I am trying to help a disabled cousin who has lots of poems (700+) which were produced and saved using a Olympia Carrera Word processor.

He now has a PC but has no way of recovering many years of work.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how we can possibly access these files. The File names do not have a specific file extension. For example a file could be called BITSANDB.OBS or MIST.

Hi every P2P program I downloaded never worked on my pc but if I had to choose I'd use LimeWire so I'll give the LimeWire problem.
When I open Limewire the Activity Bar says Enabling open informtion sharing and i only get 1bar on the connection quality thing.
It is set as an exception in my firewall. When I look at the connection tab there is nothing there so...is there supposed to be.
With Ares i can use the internet browser option but it keeps saying connecting and i cannot search...

Help much appreciated.

Hi

Have you opened the needed ports on your router if your using one, see www.portforward.com for how to.

We have a program that is part of our payroll system that resides on our server and is run via a shortcut on the user's station. Our problem is one station experiences rediculously long load times. The normal load should be about 1 minute. This station takes 4 minutes and 45 seconds. The network connection is good, the memory is more than enough (1 gig), and the cpu isn't breaking a sweat. I haven't a clue what is up with this one pc. I have noted that it transfers the data much slower than the other machine but I can't pin point why. The server runs to a gigabit switch and this machine is connected to that same switch. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

A:how do you determine the bandwidth of a program?

BANDWIDTH is related to network throughput of data, not a program per se.
Programs have several benchmarks which relate to the resources consumed
and the rate at which they can read or write data.

Does this lead you to any new questions?

Hi

I did play with this idea when I first installed a 40gb slave drive (my main drive being a small 2gb) in one of my first ever PC's andyes it worked for me, most programs lets you choose the install path, so instead of c:\program files\..... I chose d:\program files\.... , I found there were the odd one or two programs that insisted on being installed on the C: drive, but on the whole it is possible to use an alternate drive.

I never tried it with a mapped drive however, but seeing as how mapped drives are treated as a physical drive then there should be no difference.

Any disk wiping software that does work with USB?

If you have a unixoid OS then the disk wiping functionality is built in in the form of the dd command. So you could use any CD Linux like INSERT or Knoppix. They come with specialised disk wiping utilities too I think.

In Windows, any disk wiping program should work with external drives too.

Having read the "Radified Partitioning Strategies...." thread I have finally come a long way in understanding the need and essence of proper and smart partitioning of drives...(oo how I lived in the dark ages)

However I can't figure out where to place the more demanding part of the program file folder; Should it be on the second partition of drive 1 (first beeing OS) or the second partition of drive 2 (first beeing operating system page file).

It seems logical in some way to put it on the second drive, as far as efficiency goes; drive 1 runs OS while drive 2 is smoothly running Programs, but this I am not sure of . I would definately like get the most out of Photoshop (working 100 mb files) - and Premiere in the near future.

A:Program files; on separate partition or on separate drive?

You should differentiate between programs themselves and the files you are working on. The program files are loaded only once - when you start it up (or when you activate some subsystem), your documents are accessed more often - every time you save or load them.

How much are you going to use that swap file? If not that much (have plenty of RAM), then I would put the PS scratch files on the second disk with the program itself installed on the OS disk. PS end files (the images themselves) to the second partition on the first disk.

Hey people,

When I plug onto the network at my work office, a small progarm runs on CMD which was written by the IT guy. It basically finds your place on the network, maps the network drive and reconnects to all the office printers and sets the defaut printer.

I want to be able to do a similar thing at home if this is possible. All I want the program to do is set my default printer at home.

The gyt has shown me the program and it written in notepad but I dont know how he gets it to run at startup (as long as you are on the network)?

Can anyone help me?

Hey,
I was thinking about leaving my computer on more so my CPU cycles could be optimised but the only problem is the LED fan lights would be on all the time. Is there a way to cut off the LEDs on the fans other than a switch. I know when I put my computer into Hibernation the LEDS go off. Is there any way to simulate this.
Thanks,
ps. sorry this is probally in the wrong section but I figured if anyone has had this problem before me it would be you guys.
 

A:program for turning off led fan lights for UD

LED Fan lights are hardwired to be on all the time. They are usually wired in series to the fan motor so if you cut the light off, the fan will also go out. The only work around is to rewire them in parallel with a cheap switch mounted on the case. This is kind of a home project and should be easy to do. Basically split the DC power cable positive side into two. One end will also be hot and run to the fan, the other will connect to a switch and from the switch to the lights. Your negatives from your fan and lights should connect to a common negative. This of course is assuming your fans and lights are DC power (which most are).

Bear in mind, your voltage will drop off when wired in parallel, so your fan will run slower.

I have just got Cubase SX, a music producing and editing program;

I want to hook my guitar up to the computer using an adapter.

When I connect it in my Sound Effect Manager screen comes up, and it recognises that it's a microphone, but when I record in Cubase, no sound comes out. No sound is recorded on Sound Recorder either.

Anyone done this before? Suggestions please.


 

A:Hook up a guitar to computer, using Cubase as program. [need help, not a guide]

I`d think the easiest way, would be to plug your guitar into your guitar amp, then plug the guitar amp`s line out into the soundcard`s line in.

You`ll get much better quality, doing it that way.

The problem with plugging your guitar into the mic input, is you really need a preamp to boost the signal.

If after trying your other psu it`s still dead, It`s got to be either the mobo or cpu.
