Q: viewing other attnedees when planning a meeting in microsoft outlook


when i view shared calendars in outlook, i can see my co-workers appts

however, if i go to plan a meeting, and try to add other attendees, there
are no personal address books to choose from (i don't think we use
inter-office mail)

how can i view the free/busy time for my co-workers through the plan a
meeting option? (i can see their free/busy times if i just click on each day
of the calendar to see if they are busy that day but it's cumbersome)

i use thunderbird for my emails between co-workers (they use outlook)

thanks for your help

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This was sounding so promising then I got to 2GB RAM....

Have a look at your PC now - if you are running next to nothing over standard windows services, then you are probably somewhere around 1.2GB. Add an email client, some virus software a few Chrome Tabs and you will already be swapping away to page file as the OS starts to worry about memory and things will start to grind. How much would 2 more MB cost? Shame as otherwise it sounds quite a capable little machine.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Recently bought a MS mouse.

Have found that when I move the scroll wheel up or down more than really slowly
a little round icon appears with an up arrow and a down arrow. If the cursor is
above the icon, the page automatically scrolls upward without stopping, and the reverse for the cursor being below that icon. It starts without warning and always goes farther than I want and it goes so fast it's difficult, at best, to react to it before I'm way past what I want to see.

When I click, the thing goes away.

Any way to totally delete this annoying feature other than throwing the mouse away and
getting another Logitech?


A:Microsoft mouse scrolling so annoying

Wow I know that feeling. I had a MS mouse that did the same thing. Never could figure out how to stop it from doing that. I search over the internet and never found a answer. Even tried its support site. I ended up getting rid of it and going back to a Logitech.

I am running XP SP 2 on Intel Motherboard DH55TC, Core i5 CPU. UAA High Definition Audio class driver is resulting in high hardware interrupts that uses upto 10 to 12% of CPU. The interrupts goes away if I uninstall UAA Bus driver through Device Manager. But this also disables RealTek audio driver which means I hear sound no more.

I tried updating the UAA driver to Version 1.0a but still the hardware interrupts wont go away. Please help how to fix this issue.

Why doesn't my microsoft lifecam work with windows 7? Is there a simple way to fix this problem?

A:Windows 7/Microsoft Lifecam

We would need the model number to tell you a reason to why it is not working, and if there is a fix.. If there is no supported driver for windows7, you may need to attempt to use a Windows Vista driver and run it in compatibility mode.

If these options are not possible, you may have to purchase a new one.

I've been playing games for more than 12 years with KB+Mouse and have never used a controller before. Games are becoming more and more controller optimized and I have an Eyefinity setup that would give a better experience with a gamepad, so I decided to get one

I've narrowed my options to Razer Onza TE BF3 Edition (Wired):

And Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows :

They both seem pretty good, but have heard very mixed views on razer products...

Which one is better ?

I just want a *bare minimum* setup for playing crysis type of games. I am on a tight budget

For video card I have chosen 8800 GT

For processor and motherboard since I'm on a tight budget what should I go for ?

Should I go for i5 ? or is there an AMD equivalent at a lower price ?

Would 4GB ram be enough or should I go for 8GB ram ?

Any normal Motherboard should be ok isn't it ?

I'm planning to buy windows 7 home basic edition only. I assume 32bit would be fine ?

Please advise me.

Thanking in anticipation


A:I'm planning to build a bare minimum gaming machine

If you're just going to be playing games, something like the i3 2100 will do and 4GB RAM will be enough. And as it's a bare minimum steup, a cheap Asrock/MSI/Gigabyte board should be OK, but don't go dirt cheap on the motherboard though.

Definitely get the 64 bit OS, especially as they're the same price.

That last line sound like you'r considering a WHOLE system - - or is this the system to which the new device would be attached?

Most laptop systems today already have an Ethernet slot (RJ45 plug on the back) and many come with WiFi. A new USB-WiFi device would have a CD for the software and it would install the correct components to make it run - - and yes you need to ensure that it would support the 32 vs 64 bits in system software {XP,Vista, Win7}.

Hi I m a college student and am looking for an Other for Viewing Screen Mac Using alternative to buying a new tv I have a MacBook that has a nice enough screen and quite frankly why buy a new tv when you already have this nice monitor right So my question is if there is any way to use the monitor from my mac Using Mac Screen for Other Viewing to watch tv play xbox etc Basically plug in either a Using Mac Screen for Other Viewing set of RCA Cables or whatever the case and view it on my laptops screen I ve been google ing around trying to find a solution but I m finding mostly outputs from the laptop such as movies that are on the laptop and then viewing it on a different screen or other weird video importing software which will mostly likely lag I would think So if you ve done this or are familiar with a way to do this I d love some help in finding a solution thanks nbsp

A:Using Mac Screen for Other Viewing

No, you can not. If you had one of the new iMacs, then yes, you could, but otherwise you are out of luck. The only way this might be possible is if you had fairly extensive knowledge of the inner workings of electronics, bought an expensive DVI to LVDS converterr, ripped open your macbook to get access to the screen's cables, and soldered the LVDS connector to the appropriate wires within the LCD. I'm not even sure that it uses an LVDS input, but many laptops/all in ones seem to. Even if this physically possible, I would not advise trying this for obvious reasons.

As an alternative, 19" or so monitors are available for around 100$ these days, and with the proper cables this could easily be hooked up to your xbox and your mac.

I hope I'm putting this in the right place and I know it's probably I really simplistic question, but here it is:

I have Comcast Cable internet via modem that connects to my DLink 4500 gaming router. I have a PC(wired) , Laptop (wireless), another PC(wired), and XBox360(wireless) all connected to the Cable internet and home network.

I was thinking about changing my Comcast mail to Outlook express -- is this a good Idea? Can it be done? If so how do I do it? If I do it will all my mail accounts go through Outlook or can I just do mine and not my son's and husband's? Sorry again if this is not the place, but I figured you're used to newbies not knowing where to post. Thanks

A:Comcast Mail to Outlook Express

Your Comcast email is known as a Webmail solution, while Outlook, Outlook Express
are Pop3 Email Clients.

All you need is to configure your Email Client to access the Postoffice @ Comcast;
you will actually still be able to use BOTH

Yes, you can take that hard drive out of the 2k machine and read it just fine in Vista. What you can't do is take your OS drive from 2k and boot another machine with it, but I don't think that is what you were asking.

Ok, so i got kinda a blue screen yeah . I tried to start a video chat on msn, well the computer decided not to like that. Anyway, now i get this message every time i try to install my sound drivers

"Microsoft bus should be loaded into your system before installing realteck HD audio driver"

My mobo

Using onboard sound.

Googled, read, looked around, ran windows repair, help? pls? thanks guys

A:Microsoft bus should be loaded into your system.... "error"

after googleing, i found 2 potential solutions:

Right click on My Computer, go to Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. Look for any yellow bubbles next to the devices. If you see any, right click on it and click install driver. Select the option to find the drivers yourself, the next screen should allow you to browse and navigate to that folder. If the drivers still don't install then go to in IE and get any hardware updates you can get. The MS bus driver might be an update you need to get.Click to expand...


I installed WinXP once more, installed SP2 and then the Sound Driver.
Again it didnt work.

Then I remembered that i actually had changed a sound card setting in the bios. (No i did not diasble the soundcard )

The case i have installed this Mboard in has a front pannel.
And the Mboard has a front panel connector.

To connect the front pannel I had turned to the manual to get the rigtht pins set up.
The manual states on page 2-31 that:
"The default setting for this connector is legacy AC'97 audio, if you want to use the High Definition (Azalia) audio features, set the AC97 & Azalia Link A in the BIOS to Azalia."

Well this case does not use a high-definition audio front panel, so of course i had diasbled the Azalia Link i Bios.
(It was enabled in the Bios even when the manual said that the default setting was AC'97, ow well ... )

For "fun" i just tried to put it back to the setting it was when i installed the Mboard (Azalia), and then, bingo, the sound card worked in windows.Click to expand...

seems like a very rare problem.

Lots of valuable information in that file I'd like to access. I was able to create a new Outlook file in safe mode so I guess the program is OK.

It was suggested to me recently the cause may have been due to me having Microsoft Service Pack 1 at the time. I had not updated to Service Pak 2 (which I now believe has been updated to Service Pak 3). Has anyone had experience with this and, if so, do you think there's a chance that if I update my Service Pak that I might still have a chance of recovering the data I had in my original Outlook file?

A:Still unable to open Microsoft Outlook

I dont think just upgrading to service pack 3 would do any good.

I just bought a Razer Reclusa keyboard and the only problem I'm having is that it does not "power up" so to speak until after post. If I needed to get into the BIOS I could press [del] a million times and nothing would happen. Once windows starts up, it works fine. Is this just the way the keyboard is? I'd appreciate any info.

A:Microsoft Razer Reclusa Keyboard

Haven't looked up that keyboard, but I think I know what it is (the fix) anyway.

You need to get into your BIOS (with another keyboard, ideally PS/2 if you have the connection)
Then set Enable for USB Keyboard/Mouse support

I think that may be a bit of a mind teaser to do, but I'm sure you'll work it out

What is going on? It is so frustrating when I can't hear the audio because it keeps stopping and starting, starting, stopping. Help !

A:Trouble with audio when viewing videos on you tube or cnn

Find out what audio program gives you the sound for whatever is not working. It's going to be a plug-in of some kind. Go to 'control panel' and 'uninstall' the current plug-in. Then reinstall it from a good source. Many times these applications can become corrupt and stop all together or off and on. I think with a fresh install of all of your audio plug-ins will bring them around. Give it a try! Good Luck.

I have searched all of the Outlook settings, as well as all available Outlook-related options on the Q to no avail. Has anyone had any experience with these phones or any such synchronization issues? Outlook 2003 is completely updated; I am not sure about the version of the Q's firmware, but would assume, considering the phone is new, that it is probably the latest version....

A:Microsoft Zune

Yeah, I bought one the same day they came out. I was looking at an iPod. Some friends have had problems with them so I decided to check out the Zune. It can not be used as a HDD at this time as you already know.

Funny thing is, or I found it amusing at least, is that right out of the box it requires a firmware update! Looks like something sooooo new, MS would have already done this before release. The update only takes a few minutes, no biggy really. BUGS???I have not encountered anything strage operationally.

One thing(s) to consider.....the iPod's I believe have adjustable EQ's where the ZUNE only has presets to choose from. The ear buds that come with it really dont sound that me at least. It is ONLY compatable with XP, forget about using 2000. I had to upgrade my laptop to XP to use the Zune, didnt realize this at purchase. Not compatible with Vista of yet anyways. You will need to buy a DVD converter to copy movies to the Zune. Or try and find a free one....they dont exist believe me. (my problem now is finding one that works well, there are many out there)

The Zune software you DL on your PC is very easy to use. The screen itself on the Zune looks very very good. It comes pre-loaded with several music videos and short movie clips. The Zune syncs easy with the PC, no problems at far....remember this is by MS!

So far I am happy with mine....I have already DL'd around 300 songs on it. You can search your music by band, genre, song etc. Storing pictures on it is very similiar. So far I would recommend you buying one!

For the three parts you mention,
the price should be about $877USD inc. shipping.

For a functional computer though, you'd still need at a minimum, a graphics card, power supply, hard drive, optical cd or dvd drive, and operating system.

For a gaming computer, a 7600gt or 7900gt card is a nice fit if your on a budget but still want good performance.

Be sure to get a good power supply, like antec, seasonic, enermax, etc. I'd recommend getting a 400w or higher power supply.

A:Apparantly Microsoft "Needs My Help"

Your problem IS with ffdshow.

ffdshow is much more than just a simple movie viewer... it also replaces several windows media format CODEC's with it's own versions of these.

Most games use several Win XP CODEC's, which in your case, have now been overwritten by beta, open source, untested or unsupported CODEC's. Oblivion, for example, uses the Windows CODEC For MPG2 video streams. Users of both ffdshow, DVD X-Copy Platinum and dozens of other 3rd party packages have been experiencing this problem as these packages replace the supported, tested Win XP CODEC's with their own.

My best advice to you would be to try removing all unneccessary 3rd party applications that have replace XP CODEC's, or try various 3rd party CODEC downloads with your fingers crossed one will yield the same compatibility as the stock Windows XP versions.

I have just lost every thing on O/Exp, all folders, emails the lot, it now looks like the first time I ran with O/Exp all the basic folders are there but empty, I have tried restore but it's just the same. Have done a search and what comes up is the same empty O/Exp. I have a feeling that the start up may be inhibited as I had a start up progame and monitor which I have just deleted. HELP, if the wife finds out I will be made to do the ironing for a month aaah.

Just bought this after a previous post and thought you guys might like a review.

This product is more for fun than actual security. You can use this for boot but you can still type in the password making it nothing more than a convience to log in. The only other thing that it does is remember login and password information. If I where to guess it creates a file of these passwords actually making your system a little less secure. However, saying you have a fingerprint scanner is cool in an odd sort of way.

Please help,
have installed wireless desktop set, ps2 connection only for keyboard and usb/ps2 connection for mouse. Mouse works fine with either connection, the keyboard is a nightmare.
Works fine on one PC reboots fine and no issues. The other PC doesn't get past POST. Blank screen and no beeps after POST or messages. Both PCs run on XP Professional.
Have even done a total clean install to get rid of any software or device conflicts, only has monitor, keyboard and mouse attached. Works fine with old cabled keyboard and mouse.

PS. works if I boot with old keyboard/mouse and then change over to wireless whilst running but when reboots same old problem

Please please help

A:Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Problem

Could be that the PC is too old to accomodate a wireless keyboard.
Check that the powersupply for that keyboard-sender is ON before you boot.
You sure it's wireless PS/2 and that the keyboard is not also USB?
If so, check USB settings for keyboard in BIOS.

Hi everyone. I just recently got a new laptop - a Toshiba Satellite S355. I bought it from Best Buy -.-, and the guy who helped me out lied about loads of stuff. Its not too bad, but I need better.

Well, some specs are:

Intel Pentium M processor 1.86GHz
1.32GHz, 1024 MB of RAM

Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family

I tried playing Counter-Strike on it, and it lags sooo much. I can only imagine what would happen if I tried to play Half-Life 2 or some other games. It doesn't have a floppy drive, which I need. And I can't plug in a mouse or keyboard -.-. Anyway, I'm gonna use this laptop for graphics (photoshop), gaming (hl2, counter-strike, doom 3, etc.), and for other various media functions. Please help me by listing some possibilities for upgrades.

Can't help you much with this one. I'm not a software guy, but I suggest you look for video security and monitoring software, most video editing software will also allow multiple simultaneous videos.

Hardware wise what you wanted is non-ATI, non-Intel and non-VIA hardware, they traditionally are made for single tasking and being best at single big task such as encoding one single video offline (non-realtime).

What you wanted are NUMA (simultaneous multiple data streams from multiple sources to multiple destinations) based hardware.

That means AMD + Nvidia based hardware. An old dual-channel nforce2 with 2000+ XP should be the minimum.

davidsurv said:

*Am running a 128MB graphics card, would this be sufficient to handle the load of 4 videos?Click to expand...

Even Nvidia built-in mobo graphic typical for nforce2 will do the job because they are made to support "simultaneous multiple data streams from multiple sources to multiple destinations".

Though since Intel is shifting their architecture toward PCI-Express, which is made for simultaneous multiple data streams in the same exact manner as AMD's HyperTransport did since 5 years ago. You might try the newer Intel hardware, unfortunately I had not seen any experts on the net with enough expertise to recognize the Intel shift in architecture, and try to test Intel processors for internal updates matching external Intel chipset shift toward NUMA.

Prior to PCI-Express Intel is based upon Symmetric Processing origin (Time-Share/Time-Division Processing) which is UMA only (one data stream at a time in sequential symmetric timeslices).

P.S. There was a bug in Intel's PCI-Express hardware imlementation causing loss in data throughput, I don't know if Intel had fixed it yet.

A:planning my computer


I would maybe revise the motherboard unless you are loyal to that particular namebrand. I personally will continue using the ASUS A8V-Deluxe to build any socket 939 system until a more reliable/better performing board is released. This board also includes onboard FireWire since you need it for your external data storage.

I have used both the Aspire X-Dreamer and X-Dreamer II and been happy with both cases. The reason for choosing these cases is that for 1/3 of the price of some of the higher end models, you get a front panel temp display. This will allow you the luxury of purchasing a high quality PSU (and having a spare that was in the case from the factory) for less than the price of the Antec.

I preach this to any machine builder looking for extreme performance and cost per performance value. Lite-on/Lite-on/Lite-on... I have a single layer 12X DVD+/-RW in my machine and a 16x dual-layer DVD+/-RW in my wife's. Both of them are screamers, and I highly recommend the brand.

Hope this helps,
