3d Viewing Windows Vista

Q: 3d Viewing Windows Vista

My current operating system is WIN XP i heard about Windows vista, which has advanced multimedia capabilities, i heard if you take a normal window instead of minimizing you can view it in 3 dimensional mode, is that true. And i want to know how many Cds for windows vista. I mean for installation.

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.)

I have an HP Pavilion dv4 that was connecting to wireless just fine one night. The laptop lid was closed putting the machine into hibernation for the night. The next day the laptop would no longer connect to wireless.

When I try to manually connect to a wifi network, it tells me it can't see any networks. Just to test I turned on my phones hotspot capability and told the laptop to rescan and it still didn't see the network.

I shutdown the laptop so that I could physically check the wireless card. I made sure that it was properly seated and that the wires connecting the wire part of the antenna to the chip are secure as well.

The wireless card is a Broadcome 4322AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n

Please let me know if you need any other information to help me troubleshoot this

A:Windows vista stopped viewing wireless networks

There is most likely nothing wrong with your laptop's wireless adapter, otherwise Windows would have reported an entirely different error (such as "wifi adapter not detected") and you would have been unable to even open the "Detect wireless networks" window.

There is a checklist here which may help: Troubleshoot problems finding wireless networks

Gradually, and grudgingly, getting to grips with Vista. Much happier now User Account Control switched off avoiding all those nags!

Does anyone know how to force IE7 to dispay its content across the screen rather than having to scroll down the list? I seem to remember a fix for XP in the distant past.

Are you thinking of the Microsoft Digital Image Standard 2006 Editor, or maybe just the simpler MS Paint program?For either one, just right click on the file name, select Open With (not just plain Open) and scroll down to and select Choose Default Program. If the program you want is not in the list of Recommended Programs, click on either Browse and find a program on your computer, or the blue link that will help you find a program on the internet. Once you're chosen the program you always want to use to open JPEGS, make sure you check the checkbox just above that blue link.FYI, if Paint is the program you're thinking of, it's most likely here on your computer: C:\Windows\System32\mspaint.exe.If the other one (or a similar version) is also on your computer, it's probably here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Digital Image 2006\pi.exeHope this helps!

I have been using a live feed for watching my security cameras when I am away from my business using Windows XP for years. I have just upgraded my computer and my new one has Windows Vista Ultimate installed on it.
Now when I go onto the website it won't show me any feed. Instead I am getting a tiny box on the left hand corner of the screen where the feed normally is. If I hit the play button I get a box up telling me "Active X downloading, please refresh". Earlier I installed an active x control on my computer and this has made no difference. When I refresh nothing else happens either.
I have also gone into security settings and enabled everything to do with active x.
Any help would be really appreciated.

What type of feed is it? In what format does the feed play? Maybe naming the program would help answer some of the questions.

When you right-click the box, do you get any information about what plug-in may be responsible or needed?

The rectangle boxes usually mean that the proper languages haven't been installed. I'd check in Control Panel (Classic view)...Regional and Language Options...Keyboards and Languages tab....Install/Uninstall Languages button. You should be able to install the Nepali language there.FYI - I have no problem viewing the page even without installing the Nepali language pack - so I'm not sure exactly what the issue is here.Try going to Start and type in "iexplore -extoff" (without the quotes) and press Enter. This will open IE without any addons. Then navigate to the site to see if you can read it then.

Being very new to Vista I have yet to discover a lot of its tricks. At the moment I get quite worried when clicking on a folder to, for example, drag a file to it, the only indication of this selection is a very feint, and hardly discernible, light blue. On several occasions the file has ended up in the wrong folder. I am sure there must be a way to make this a clearly seen darker blue (as with all previous Windows versions) - for the benefit of those of us with eyesight less than 20/20!

Seems like we've had this one before, or one like it, but I'm not coming up with much. Have you tried a different mouse? It seems reasonable that there may be a wiring short at the mouse end that simulates clicking when you move the mouse. Are you using any software like Intellimouse? Go to Mouse in the Control Panel and make sure you don't have Quicklock enabled, and check your double-clicking speed. Try changing the speed a bit slower or faster and see if the problem persists.

I have a huge collection of very small (8x8 to 16x16) images that I need to look through. It would be nice if I could see each picture zoomed in to a larger size, since it is hard to make out the detail with the naked eye. However, when I try to zoom in using Windows Explorer, the displayed size of the images doesn't change at all, only the space between them. If I open the image with Windows Photo Viewer, which came with my computer, I can zoom in and out using the mouse wheel. However, the moment I move to the next or previous image, the zoom reverts back to the normal setting, forcing me to zoom in again. This quickly becomes unbearably tedious for thousands of images, and I was wondering if there's a better way to let me see the zoomed in images.

I'll try and describe this as best I can - I often have a lot of MS Word windows open at the same time, and windows seems to vary between showing me them as small preview windows or a vertical list when hovering over them in the taskbar - I only want to show them as a list, but can't see how to do this?

Any replies most welcome as all these 'mini window' previews are annoying the hell out of me!


A:Viewing Open Windows From Taskbar?

Hello DekHog,

It depends on if you want all icons to never show thumbnails preview windows and only lists, or just have it set to show a list after so many windows are open instead.

If never, then you can use one of the options that you like best in the tutorial below to do this.

Taskbar Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

If only after so many windows are open to have the list, then the tutorial below can help show you how to.

No matter what OS I create the document in, it appears fine on the screen, but when viewed in anything lower than win 8, it needs to be tweaked to fit properly.

I remember reading sometime ago it was possible to view a clickable list of all my Windows 7 files through Internet Explorer.

Just wondered how to do it and if it was a good idea?

A lot of my files are also on 2 connected External Drives F Drive and G Drive.

A:Viewing windows files in Internet explorer?

I suspect you mean view all files on a computer using Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer.

Right click Computer and select Open. Expand the arrow in front of C.
Expand the arrow in front of Users.
If you click on your name (don't let the lock on your name scare you), you will see folders with your files in the right hand pane. Click on any of them to see what they contain.

For an external hard drive: be sure the drive is attached.
Click on computer and you should see the drives. Click on either drive to see the contents.

Hallo all..

I have 2 problems..

1 ) My JPEG icon is a windows generic Icon and I cant seem to change the JPEG images back to a original JPEG icon

Does any one know how I can change icon to a normal JPEG look icon ? I've right clicked on the Image / Properties / Change Icon but I cant find the JPEG icon..

2 ) I have a load of JPEG images on my system from holidays etc but unlike Windows XP windows 2000 doesnt have a Image view program that you can hit an arrow and go to the next image. Is their a way around this instead of closing and opening next image ?

Thx for any help..

Hi there, I love Windows Live and skydrive. I'm using both and trying to get my friends and family to sign up. Unfortunately, when I go to a page like all I see it text.

I don't care how many times I set my Windows Explorer viewing settings to Name, Ascending I have files that move around in the window. I'm getting real sick of having to either use F5 or back out of the folder and come back in. Just because I open a file doesn't mean it should move to the end of the list. That's what is happening though. Every single one of these files was created exactly the same way but not all of them do it. And not all of the files moving are the same ones every time. It's only occasion files that move and not always the same files, it seems to be random.

I just know this is getting to be extremely irritating. So if anyone can tell me how to lock in my viewing preferences and keep them that way I would greatly appreciate it.

OK, so i put a whole load of pictures taken on the same night with different cameras into a folder, but the different cameras give the pictures different names and as such theyre all sorted in a silly order, just by name.
I know that by right-clicking and selecting 'arrange icons by> picture taken on' would sort out the problem...but for some reason when i right-click its not one of the options! Anyone know how to get that option back?

It ONLY happens in Explorer, not in Firefox, IE, Media Centre, Thunderbird or anything else I use the 'Back' function in.

I have not installed any new programs recently, but I do approve all security-related Microsoft Windows Updates, so am totally up to date on them.

Does anyone know if the latest round of updates contains anything a bit dodgy? It's certainly possible that this started at around the same time as my last update a few days ago...

I believe I solved my problem. I decreased Graphics Hardware Acceleration and that seems to have fixed things. Apparently a recent upgrade (maybe Adobe Flash) set my display setting for "FULL" Graphics Hardware Acceleration, which my oldish AGP 2x 4x video card memory (only 64MB) cannot handle. I suspect this happened when Adobe Flash upgraded to Flash 10, which automatically sets graphics hardware acceleration to "full". I noticed that Flash 10 requires a minimum of 128MB memory when using full graphics hardware acceleration, thus prompted me to rollback the amount of hardware acceleration for my display.

If anyone else has an oldish XP using a video card with less than 128MB and using Adobe Flash 10 that struggles with system graphics after having viewed a video (especially in full screen mode), then I suggest you try this: Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Troubleshoot > Move the "Hardware Acceleration" slider bar from "Full" toward "None" until it corrects erratic graphics on the display.

I hope this helps anyone facing the same strange (choppy/shaky/jiggly) graphics issues I had after having viewed a video.

Hi, all.. I read through the late 2009 thread titled: "Solved: Joining W7 netbook to MSHome group". I am having more or less the same problem. My XP computers can see and access each other, and can at least see the Windows 7 PC; however, the Windows 7 PC cannot see the other PCs on the network. The workgroup name is WORKGROUP. I went through some of the steps suggested in the 2009 thread. I found that I could ping the PCs by IP address, but not by name. The PCs are set up for file and printer sharing. Also, none of the PCs can see the Ubuntu PC.

Incidentally, the Windows 7 is 64 bit Home Premium and the XPs are XP Professional, SP3.

I guess my major concern is access to a printer connected to my XP desktop; although it would be nice to be able to access the shared folders on the PCs.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey guys,

Recently picked up a Go Pro Hero 2 last week, and I've been making videos. They are being filmed on 960p and 1080p. The video isn't choppy, but the sound is. How do I fix this?

I've read that I should update some codecs? Update the drivers?

I attached a picture of the specs.

The Graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 6150SE Integrated.

I was planning on upgrading the graphics card for a 1gb ddr3 and a new power supply (500watt). - Would doing that fix my problem? Again, only the sound is choppy.

It's driving me insane!

Thanks, Dan.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Cannot keep "thumbnails" as default viewing option throughout Windows Explorer programs & functions

Running XP Home, Version 2002, SP2

All my folders are set to thumbnail in windows explorer, but when I go to send a picture on msn or open in another application the pictures are in list view.

This requires an extra step to view the thumbnail, having to go to "view menu" then check thumbnails to preview files before opening/sending.

I have scoured the internet for a solution, to no avail.

Anyone be so kind as to lend any expertise on the issue?

Thank you.

I have a cd-rw with me and i wish to copy some mp3 songs to the cd and listen in my car.

Previosly, i managed to copy mp3 to the cd-rw with windows xp. Afterthat, i tried to use my windows vista to copy the mp3 to the cd-rw and it was failed saying that the cd is write protected. I know that the file system is different from the windows xp, which is UDF and CDFS for windows bad. I really wish to copy song to the cd with my windows vista (my desktop and laptop also use windows vista). What should i do now? Have to download the software?

Is the COA sticker on the case of the machine readable? - can you see the whole of the Product Key? (DO NOT post it!)

If so, you can clean install Vista using downloaded files, after creating your own boot disk.
First task is to download and create the disk
You'll need to download the appropriate files from this list -
You'll want the Vista SP1 Ultimate disk (either x86 or x64 depending on your machine) in the appropriate language.
the Ultimate download for Vista will install all the usual editions of Vista - dependent only on the Key use, so make absolutely sure that when it comes to installing, you use your proper COA Key from the sticker.

Follow the instructions for creating the ISO and DVD from the files.

Once created, it's a fairly simple matter to boot from teh DVD, and then install Vista.

I have a couple of Windows XP computers and a couple of Vista computers. I share files, printers etc. and it all runs great.

One of the family has been away, and now they have come back their laptop won't connect to the XP computers. It connects to the Vista (and Win7) computers just fine.

It must be something wrong with the laptop, as my other Vista/Win7 computers connect fine to the XP ones perfectly.
I have tried disabling firewalls.

The error I get is:
Windows Cannot Access \\COMPNAME

If I click diagnose I get:
"COMPNAME" is not a valid hostname

The laptop is running Windows Vista Home 32bit with SP1, using it's wireless connection. One of the XP machines is wireless, the other is wired and both are XP Pro 32bit with SP3.

Can anybody help me out please?
Many thanks...

I have a 2007 Dell desktop that never had any updates. It's a friend's computer and I started doing all the updates through the updater, there were about 90. This was working ok and then after restarting it was stuck with the screen configuring updates - part 3 of 3 do not turn off.

I didn't realize there were all these problems with Vista until this had already happened.

I booted from the Vista DVD and have tried to restore but it gives me an error and says it won't restore. I've gone through each of the restore points and none work.

What else can I do?

When I try to complete updates from windows updates, I keep on trying to install/download Windows Vista SP 2 and I get an error -8007045D. I have been trying to troubleshoot this for too many hours and I have learned that there are different issues that could be causing the problem.
I have tried all of them, and not one works for me.
I did receive a piece of advice from the forum here which I am now trying. Inst/download from Windows online, manually for my Vista 64 bit system. I am hoping it works and in addition, I am hoing that the windows issue was the reason that my windows in general were sluggish and freezing often.
Does anyone have any other ideas of what could be going on with my system?

Hey man,

I have my Vista serial key, but do you know a website i can download Windows Vista Premium 32bit, ive searched everywhere but cannot find one. I dont mind a torrent, as i woudnt be using it illegally as i have a serial?

Any help is much appreciated.

A:Hey man, I have my Vista serial key, but do you know a website i can download Windows Vista Premium 32bit, ive searched everyw...

If you have a key then you must have originally had Vista. Where did it go?

IMO, stay clear of torrents, P2P in general. The malware forums are full of user`s with problems originating from d\l`d via torrent files.
