When I insert a CD in either of my two drives the window that jumps up giving me the options of what program to use (CD Properties ) is maximized and takes up the whole screen. This just started happening. If I double click on the top blue titlebarlbar it goes back to it's smaller (normal) size. I tried holding down the ctrl. key and closing the window but the next time the computer boots it does the same thing. It is not possible to drag this type of window in any way. The only option for this type of window in the upper right corner is an X to close it. It may need a registry edit but I don't know how. To access a similar type window open "my computer, right click on any drive, the window that opens is the same type. Any help would be appreciated.
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.)
Minimize it again and this time hold down shift and close it off.https://forums.techguy.org/threads/cd-properties-window-wrong-size.307051/

I have a folder (actually many) that give the wrong size in MB. Right clicking on a folder and selecting properties pops up a dialog that has the size listed as 11.5MB (12,163,992 bytes). Last I checked 12,163,992 bytes = 11.6MB. Why does windows report an inconsistent size.
I need to understand where windows got the 11.5MB from.
PS I was going to upload a screenshot of the property dialog but could not figure out how to insert a picture into this forum.
is there a program or a way to change the size of a file?i mean for example i have a music with 4mb and i want to when anyone watch the propertise of this song , it shows 10mb to him???
no one has my answer???http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/245439-show-wrong-size-file-properties.html
I am running WinXP, SP2. I have a Fellows Internet Touchpad installed. When I go to the Control Panel and select the Mouse, the standard Microsoft Mouse window opens instead of the Cirque Touchpad window. The mouse is identified correctly as a Cirque Ps2 Touchpad and the driver is correctly specified. The special functions of the touchpad are all working ok, however without being able to open up the correct properties window, I cannot make any changes. It used to work properly. I have tried uninstalling the touchpad driver and reinstalling the touchpad driver. That does not fix it. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/53989/touchpad-gets-wrong-properties-window/
No matter how many times I go to 'View' settings, every time I choose a new window (i.e. opening a folder) I am always met with a small-format window rather than a full-screen, full-size one. I also am met with random lists instead of 'medium-sized icons', which I have opted for and chosen as default in 'view'. Have I missed a colossally simple tick in a box?
By default, folder views are a per folder setting, and will be the same as when last closed per folder.
In a library, the folder view is shared between all included folders in the library.
If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to set a default folder view for all folders.
Folder Template - Set Default for All Folders in Windows 8
Afterwards, open File Explorer, maximize it to full screen, and close File Explorer. Each time you open File Explorer it should now open full screen as it was last closed.
Hope this helps,

My computer has 2gb's of ram installed and my BIOS recognizes that I do as claimed and so does my System Information but right clicking on "My Computer" and Properties displays 256mb. Any one know a solution or what the problem is or if it will in fact affect my performance? I just formated to XP Pro from Media Center Edition which came with my laptop and had to change a BIOS setting for "enable native SATA support" for it to recognize my HD in order to format with XP Pro CD.
Open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and under the Performance tab, see what it lists under Commit Charge (K)>Limit.
You can also check in Start>Help and Support>Whats new in Windows XP>Tools (bottom left)>My Computer Information. (General Information)
Another way is Start>Run>type: msinfo32 and Enter.
Se what it losts their as the total amount of RAM picked up.
I am having Acer Aspire 5052 ANWXMi-Turion Laptop.
I have Windows-XP professional service pack 2 installed on it.
I am facing two problems in it:
1. If I go to My Computer and try to open any of the drives (i.e C, D, E & F) by double-clicking the drive labels, the drive is not getting opened.
But I am able to open the hard-drives using right-click-->open. This double-click problem is not happening anywhere else like in other folders etc.
2. The second problem I am facing is that I have 1GB of RAM in it(2 each of 512MB), but when I see System Properties it shows a RAM of 768MB but if I go to
System Information and check the Total Physival Memory it shows as 1024MB.
I would be really greatful if somebody can help me in resolving these issues.
Hi .The memory differential...is probably caused by the fact that part of the physical RAM installed (1GB) is being used for onboard video. The System Properties info reflects the net of total RAM installed minus such allocation.What do you see if you go Start/right-click on My Computer and select Properties? Should be 768MB, if I am right.There is a setting in the BIOS which you can use to adjust the amount of RAM so used. You can set it for a lesser amount. If you only do normatl things, there is no reason to allocate more than 64MB for onboard video, IMO.http://www.ehow.com/how_2138456_configure-...rough-bios.htmlSorry, but I have no answer for your first question, although I have seen the answer posted in this forum before.Louishttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/168646/wrong-display-of-ram-in-system-properties/
I am working on an IBM I series 1300 for a customer of mine and I have a bit of a problem. The BIOS states a P3 750MHz processor but the Win XP properties shows a 477MHz P3?????????????? I have never seen this before and it seems to me that the computer is running a little slower than these have in the past. It's like it's running at 477Mhz instead of 750Mhz. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance
Sounds to me like a communications failure between your motherboard and Windows. I'd suggest updating your motherboard resource drivers (chipset, etc); these should be readily available from the website of your motherboard's manufacturer.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/wrong-cpu-specs-in-system-properties-243469.html

Are you running a good Antivirus app? Strange things like this are often caused by virii!
Just want a liitle suggestion and a feedback on my current query, which is as follows: -
A softwatre developed from our vendors on VB, & Access platform, has different Modules.
In each modules, there are some categories, and clicking on them opens a child window.
The size of the child window created in the software is not very comfortable in viewing the details, as the size of the window is prety small, say 2/5 of the parent window.
And, considering the Parent Window size as equivalent to that of the Excel file (maximized view), the view area for the child windows created is very small.
I am not pretty familiar with VB, and hence require a technical help on the same.
I think that the increase in size is possible, through reworking on the Forms.
Please revert with the possible solutions on the same.

Off the top of my head, I'd be inclined to think you simply need to update your printer driver. Have you done so lately?

Printers can be very frustrating to say the least. When I've had printer problems in the past, this is what has worked for me:
1. Unplug the power to the printer
2. Wait about 30 seconds or so
3. Plug it in and let it go through it's initialization
4. Then try it again
If that doesn't work, try reloading the printer driver from the HP site. If it still doesn't work, try a system restore back to the last time the printer was working successfully. That's about all the tricks I know for printers. Hope it helps ...
Hello. I have noticed a strange fact regarding my windows 7 32 bit operating system. When I delete some files in a folder, then go to properties, when i look at "Contains", it still shows the number of files i had before deletion, not the current number of files in that folder. Is there a way to repair this? Thanks in advance! (rebooted my pc, but with no success, if it is to mention)
BTW: Happy holidays
Did you empty the Recycle Bin?
I don't see a "Contains" choice in any folder property menu. Can you tell me how you get to it, as following the directions you gave does not show it for me.
Maybe post a screen shot of it? Make sure the window you want to capture has the focus.

It's not unusual to receive such an error after using tools to remove malware infection.A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.Right-click on the entry and choose delete.Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.IMPORTANT NOTE: ise32.exe is related to the family of worms and IRC backdoor Trojans. Backdoor Trojans, IRCBots and Infostealers are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms and steal sensitive information like passwords, personal and financial data which they send back to the hacker. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. Read Danger: Remote Access Trojans.If your computer was used for online banking, has credit card information or other sensitive data on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for banking, email, eBay, paypal and online forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breach. Because your computer was compromised please read How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud? Although the backdoor Trojan was identified and removed, your PC has likely been compromised and there is no way to be sure the computer can ever be trusted again. It is dangerous and incorrect to assume that because the backdoor Trojan has been removed the computer is now secure. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of malware, the best course of action is to wipe the drive clean, reformat and reinstall the OS.

I've been fighting properties window since I installed window 10...
I use this function a lot. The problem is the properties window opens in the background.
So I have to minimize all the windows I have open to see the properties window.
The weird thing is the properties window is the only one that does that, When I open a new
window of anything it opens in the forground.
Is there a way to force the properties window open in the forground...Thanks...
I fixed it.. If anyone is having this same issue... This is what I used to fix my problem... It's for Windows 7 but it applies to windows 10...

Hi JohnnyUK have you seen this http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_stp_hwpg.asp give it a shot. Also take a look at this http://www.microsoft.com/resources/d...d_stp_hwpg.asp.
I have a large number of files which I am changing the naming convention for in the Title detail and am getting frustrated having to right click for properties and anvigate tabs ebfore being able to change each one. I can see the Title of the files in the Details view of the folder they are in, but there cannot find a way to edit them in that view other than the manner previosuly stated.
That being said, does anyone know of a workaround that would allow me to change each title without aving to jump through hoops to edit them?
Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the Forums Clockwork,
So if I get it correctly you want to rename multiple files at once?
If so, go to the folder they are located in, click anywhere in the folder, hit crtl and a at the same time to select all the files and then hit F2
After that you'll see that the name banner of the first file in the folder turned empty. You can now type the name you want it to have in, and hit enter. It will change all the files to that name, followed up by a number.
Hope that that helps!
I turned on sharing for the C drive and added an Everyone group in Security to allow access to my other computer on my network. When I go to close the Properties window I a message that says "You are about to change the permissions settings on the root directory of the startup disk which can result in unexpected access problems and reduce security. Do you want to continue?".
I answered yes and it went through all the folders and gave an access denied message on system folders. After if was done I got the same message mentioned when I tried to exit the Properties window. So I removed sharing and the Everyone group. But I'm still in the same situation. I keep going through the same loop and can not exit the Properties window.
Open task manager and end the process all "explorer.exe" and "rundll32.exe"

The System32 folder opens at startup because of a corrupt system registry value. The value could have been corrupted for a number of reasons to include malware or installing/uninstalling a program from the Internet which did not install/uninstall itself properly.Click on the link below:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htmScroll down to #260 and click "System32 Folder Opens Upon Boot" in the right column. You will be prompted to download xp_systems32opens.vbs. Save the file to your desktop and double-click on it to run the script. Since the script modifies certain registry settings you may receive an alert from your anti-virus or any script blocking program. Ignore the warning and allow it to continue.The problem could also be caused by empty run entries in your startup shortcuts which will open the system32 folder. Check the startup run registry entries and remove those entries. See System32 Folder Opens When Logging on to Windows.These steps involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT is an excellent FREE tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/166169/window-sys32-properties-appears-on-opening/
I recently reformatted my computer, (Athlon, 2.08, 512mb, 120GB HD, etc...) but the computer is only saying that my hard drive is 4.87GB or something like that, what gives? I've never experienced a problem like this after completing a reformat....does anyone know how I can get the rest of my HD back???
I have an external Western Digital 160 GB HDD but Windows explorer tells me it is only 508 MB. How do I access the rest?
well maybe its ful ? do you have anything on it ?
if there is nothing on it. try to reformat it. but dont chose the fast option.
hey guys, i'm working on my father's computer. long story short the new mobo i purchased seems to be having a little difficulty.
MSI board #KM4AM-V
my problem is that the fan doesn't want to sit on the cpu properly without coming into some contact with a chipset heatsink and what i believe to be a diode. i have a generic fan that is for the amd cpu xp series.
http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=KM4AM-V&class=mb take a look at the mobo.
i have never had this problem before. the previous mobo did not have this problem either.
has anybody else had this problem or am i just lucky??
if so any recommendations for a different fan or is contact between the fan
and the above mentioned parts acceptable ??
heatsinks can get quite hot. so no touching! and if youve tried putting the heatsink on a few times, youve obviously damaged the thermal compound on its base, and it needs to be replaced.
about the mobo, first of all, for the amd athlon xp series, you should have never gone for a via chipset based motherboard. thats not a diode, its a capacitor, and can melt easily if t stays at temperatures like 60C for some time. id recommend looking for a little smaller heatsink, but dont get something too small, as it wouldnt cool the cpu properly

Upgraded a hd from 20gb to 80gb using drivecopy. New drive boots and works fine but in My computer the drive only registers as 20gb.
In POST the inital screen shows the primary master as 17 gb but in Set-up and on the second screen the correct value is given
The MB is a recent ECS so that the bios should accept a large drive.
All help appreciated
drivecopy may be just like other disk copy utilities, in that the standard routine is to create the exact same overlay. In Win2000, you can manipulate the drives easily, but I do not know if it will destroy any of your information. I don't have a disk with any space not used by a partition, but it might allow you to add the unused space into the existing partition, or definitely create a new partition with it. Creating a new partition will not destroy your data, but adding to it, if you can, might.
You get to this by going to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management
I would actually say that you should do the drivecopy again, but use Seagate's Disk Wizard 2002 or Maxtor's Maxblast which will copy all the data over, and also make sure that all the diskspace available is included in the partition, if you want.

Hi, my parents have a pc with a pc100 supersocket 7 system board. The pc has always had 64 mb ram and was getting really slow so we took the old ram out and replaced it with a 128mb on one module.
Everythings fine except that its just as slow as before and the computer only recognises 64mb ram even though there is 128mb installed.
The motherboard booklet says that it can support upto 256mb ram. Also, the 128ram (that shows up as 64 on my parents pc) works perfectly in another pc and shows up as 128mb.
Does anyone have any ideas why? I've tried changing the module for another one and that still shows up as 64 mb so I don't think its faulty ram.
Is there something I can change in the bios to make it accept the 128mb ram??
Thanks in advance.

When I draw a line or square in Word 2010 and and specify the size, it will come out slightly smaller than what it should be (like 9,2 instead of 10 cm). In Photoshop, the pictures comes out with the correct size. The printer (Brother HL-2250DN laser) has been updated as far as possible with the help of the Brother support. Has anyone heard of this problem before? Is it a bug in Office 2010?
I want to know if it is the printer or Word 2010 that causes my printouts to be of the wrong size. Is there anyone out there who could try and print a line that you have specified the length of and see if it comes out with the right length? It doesn't matter what printer you have, but it would have to be Word 2010.http://www.sevenforums.com/microsoft-office/134077-wrong-print-size.html

I have a 3tb WD drive that during win 7 64 bit (pro) disc management, I did not notice due to interruptions, got initialised as only being 746.39 GB instead of 3Tb
I set it to GUID rather than MBR as its size was greater than 2Tb
I need to transfer data to the drive but I need nearly all the whole 3Tb.
No data has been written to the disc.
Can anyone help me to understand how I can either make this bigger or to re initialize the disk and tap in new parameters to fix this or is the disk useless now and only the new reduced size as I nee to get at least 2TB of data across onto it.
Many thanks in advance.
I don't recall specifics, but if the HDD is being used as the primary boot drive I believe you are limited in the amount of useable space...which I thought was 2TB.
If it's a secondary data disc, simply use Disc Management to delete the partition(s) and start over. Windows (7) can partition, format, and use 3TB HDD's.
I've been running RC1 for a few weeks now and I have 3 SATA HDD's installed. A few days ago, one of the drives started reporting a wrong partition size. The drive and size show fine in BIOS, however.
The drive in question is a 250 gig drive, and it is showing as a 100mb drive, at current! When I first installed, it was reporting correctly. The drive is, and was, empty. The other 2 drives are reporting correctly. This happened seemingly out of the blue.
Any ideas? I've tried uninstalling the drive via Windows and scanning, tried reinstalling chipset drivers, etc. Thanks!

I am using MS Word XP on my Gateway laptop which is running Win XP, SP 2, FAT 32. I use Iomega Hotburn to copy work to CDs. When I open My Computer and check the properties of the CD, it shows (currently) 203 MB used out of 203 MB possible instead of 700 possible. How can I get it to show the correct CD size?
Volume C: in this computer is a 30G. Windows reports it at around 18, and the BIOS reports is as 20020 MB. All of the Googling I've done is for
-Wrong size reported while installing hard drive
-Wrong partition size (which I read as applying to a partitioned drive)
-Wrong size shown only in Windows Explorer
None of these apply to me. There are no "extenuating circumstances" besides the possibly of a setting or registry key or something, and the wrong size applies all over. The paging file is about 2 gigs so that is probably why the BIO size differs from Windows' reported size.
With a 30G hard drive it is important to have the correct size reported. Can somebody help me? Thanks.
What's the brand and model of your computer ? If it's custom built what are your complete system specs ? (check the posting system specs link in my sig) What's the brand and exact model of your hard drive ? Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. Expand disk drives and report the model ID you'll see there
If it shows as 20GB in the BIOS there's nothing you can do within Windows to make it show more (meaning the problem is not with the registry), you need to solve the problem in the BIOS first. Let's first check that your drive is indeed a 30GB drive.

I recently purchased a 180GB IBM Deskstar hard drive and had it installed by a friend. He said that he was having problems with it and that he couldn't get the computer to recognize the entire 180GB. I know that there is a certain degree of "wastage" when a drive is installed but mine is only showing to be 137.44GB. Does anyone know how to have the rest of the drive space recognised by my computer?
Incidentally, my motherboard is a Gigabyte 7DXR.
I recently had to format by laptop's hard drive since it would not start up. I tried everything from restoring the MBR to deleting the partition. I got a bunch of errors of protected partiion, I assume because of Norton Goback's lock on the partition. Lastly, I restored the computer using toshiba's restoration DVD. Now windows XP and any other partition software is displaying the hard disk as 74 Gb instead of 120 Gb. Does anybody know how to fix this? I have a Toshiba Satelite M55 with Windows XP. The BIOS is a piece of crap and it doesn't allow you to get any hard disk details or do an auto config. I've restored the hard drive a second time with the restore software and the outcome is the same. Please help.
If you right click My Computer and choose "Manage" then Disk management, see if the drive shows a portion unallocated. If so you will need partitioning software to merge it back as I don't think Disk management will do that in XP. Partition magic or Acronis Disk Director are what you will need. There is a free program called Paragon also that can do it.

I have a problem. I am running Windows XP.
When accessing the options in a program the box displayed is the wrong size.
I can't see all of the box and can't tab or scroll to whats missing.
So, I have no way of altering the settings.
I am sure that it is something small but I can't find out what it is.
Thanks for your help.
Tried a system file check?
Start -> Run -> type: sfc /scannow
I recently put in a new hard drive ( Maxtor ultra ata/133 80gb ) .
My bios is set to auto detect but it displays the wrong HD size; about 65 gb instead of 80. When I formatted and loaded windows none of the partitions display incorrect sizes, but the bios still does....
i put 5 partitions on the drive.
what should i do?
My Bios is Phoenix ver 4.0 release 6.0
Did you put the correct 80-prong ATA-100/133 cable on?
As far as I know, a BIOS only recognizes the combined size of the first 4 partitions of any HD, so if your 5th partition is about 15GB that explains dhe difference.
2.4gb celeron, 256mb ram, asus motherboard, 80 gb maxtor hard drive 7200rpm.
bios reads it as 80 gb then I made boot disks off windows 2000 pro and loaded it with the four diskettes and now bios sees 8422gb chs capacity and 33820 gb LBA capacity
what is going on? I partioned it the first time then redid it and decided I didn't waqnt to partition it so I set it at one drive of 78something gb.
It was working fine I was able to load up all the drivers and download some programs i needed because I wanted to use this as a server.
Today I turn it on to finish up and it won't boot past the part that shows you the drives and such in the frame like graphic.
I sure could use some help.
I have an Asrock 939Dual-SATA2 MB with 2 one-gig sticks of ddr400 installed in first two slots. BIOS correctly identifies both and total memory is listed as 2 gig dual channel. However, Windows only reports 1 gig of ram. 1 gig is listed in System properties, dxdiag and FreshDiagnose, only HWiNFO32 correctly reports 2 gig. I've tried inserting each seperately and they both boot correctly, I've tried switch slots and using both in Mobo slots 3 & 4 with the same results. Any ideas? Thanks fish4specs
edit oops: Windows XP Professional, Asrock 939Dual-SATA2, AMD Athlon 64 3700+, 2 Gig Kingston DDR400, Nvidia Geforce FX5200 AGP.
to operate dual channel you neeed one module in slot 1 and the other module in slot 3.
Running xp pro sp NTFS I use an external usb box and in that box i have a maxtor gig hard drive I use this for archives I put files into one large folder until its around gigs Then i burn a copy of that as well so i have a copy on dvd and a copy on this hard drive All is well except that the folder reports around to gigs when it should be around to gigs But when i go inside the folder and use edit select all right click and go to properties then the true size is properly listed as i mentioned above around gigs give or take a few hundred mbs The usb box is about a year old so i dont think its the technology inside the box doing this and its also a in reported Wrong file size xp win name brand quot Ads quot I believe its the os doing this so after a search failed i am posting in win xp but i have no proof that its an os problem and my expertise Wrong file size reported in win xp ends right about here so if anyone can help me out with fixing this or explain why this cant be fixed i would appreciate it Thanks And merry whatever holiday is coming Wrong file size reported in win xp up for you For me its xmas
Am I reading this correctly? If the USB drive is drive E: ...
right-click/properties on e:\folder results in 2.0GB or so
open e:\folder, select all, right-click properties results in 4.5GB or so
I just reformated windows and did all the updates etc and i transfered my documents and my program files from an external back onto my computer. I transfered over at max maybe 60 gigs on a 500 gig hard drive and it says I have some 5 gigs left on it(what it said before i reformated) Im guessing I transfered over a file that tells my computer how much space I have. I did a disk defrag and it did nothing useful, Im wondering what is the way to make my hard drive check itself that it does not have that much used space in it?
EDIT* I just realized in windows old it saves all your files hence I thought the reformat deleted everything.

I really need to get one of my files from my computer to another computer in a different house. It's an .mdf file and it's only 4.06 GB. So I tried to burn it onto a DVD, but it only reads as 72 MB. I also used xdrive.com and tried to upload it onto there temporarily, but it still is being read as 72 MB. What's the problem?
Create a File Folder with the "New" command.
Then drag the .mdf file into it.
Then right click on the folder, then scroll down to the bottom of that folder, and click on properties.
Regardless of whether it is 72 mb or 4.06 GB, select the folder add it to the copy list.
Now copy it as normal.
How do I get my pogo games to resize to fit my screen on Windows 7? I played the games with no problems on the XPWindows. I was just a little to late to get the answer i needed, as, almost the same problem was dealt with and I was just a little too late so if anyone can help me I would very much apppreciate as I am sort of a beginner with the Windows 7 and don`t know anything at all. HELP ME PLEASE.
When playing the pogo games, the games comes up on a new page, the full page shows a small game in the left corner and the chat part is in the right hand of the corner. with the rest of the page white,so, how do I get a full picture.
I use tabs and a few weeks ago I clicked on a hyperlink that started my tabs opening only halfway. I've had this problem in the past and I just dragged the screen to the correct size and then went to file and closed it. But now nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?
You want your web browser and other windows to start maximized?
If that's the case, go to your start menu and find whatever program you want to start maximized. Right click on it and go down to "Properties" When the window pops up, go to the drop down box next to "Run" and select whichever state you want the window to start in.

I solved this by downloading the second Vista patch and reinstalling it.http://www.vistax64.com/general-discussion/231574-cant-access-system-properties-window-flashes-closed-shadow-volume.html
Hello I'm not really new to this vista System window desktop Personalize and disabled!! Properties, on control panel experience and all i have no serious problems encountered before aside from a few lags in the system when it starts or opens an application but just recently well yesterday I tried opening my system properties to run my OS in very minimal visual effects since it was running a little slow again I was not able to open the thing after right clicking the properties window in Computer also i have tried going to control panel but the only thing i can see after i click on the control panel button is a window with an empty space named windows explorer and it suddenly closed after like a second or so also i tried also opening my quot personalize quot on the desktop and it has the same response as with my control panel what probably is the problem with my computer i System Properties, Personalize window on desktop and control panel disabled!! read that it could be a malware but my anti-virus could not detect anything at allhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/system-properties-personalize-window-on-desktop-and-control-panel-disabled-339491.html
I tried to ignore this problem, but it has become increasingly frustrating when I have to work with files in Windows Explorer.
The problem is, when I right-click on a file and choose Properties, it takes 5-8 seconds to open the File Properties Window. Strangely, when I do the same with folders (Folder Properties) the window opens almost instantaneously as it should. I have tried to fiddle around with ShellExView but to no avail - after all, I assume that program is just for controlling context menu entries. I searched and googled but I couldn't find any similar problems, the closest I got was that software.
Do you know what's the problem? Thanks in advance!
You can keep disabling more non-microsoft extensions in shellexview and see if any of them are causing it (do a system backup first)http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/588418/windows-explorer-takes-5-8-seconds-to-open-a-file-properties-window/
Just Installed two 30G Hitachi Travelstar HD in
1) a Sony Vaio Z505R and
2) a Sony Vaio PCGFX150k.
Worked fine in the Z505R.
In the FX150, the BIOS sees the HD correctly, but when Windows tries to partition the disk it reports 69047 Megs and crashes. Happens when I try to install Windows XP professional And Windows 2k.
Swapped HD's to verify that both disks were OK. FX150 reads Disk Error when I insert the disk formatted on the 505. FX150 reads other HD's just fine.
Anybody seen this before?
Obviously, the BIOS is not OK in the machine in question.
I have a new pc just set it up it has windows 7 and gone on to youtube and other sites playing videos and the viewable area seems very squeezed I suppose like a wide screen effect also when I'm not playing videos I have a black bar at the bottom of my screen about 2cm deep and at the moment its flickering,text seems massive too I'm a novice with computersn does anyone have any ideas to help me please,my previous set up with this monitor was with xp on my old desktop
Sometimes this can be caused by the version of Flash player that your browser is using. Which browser are you using?
See if there is an update to Flash here:
You should see the version you have in the box, and see if its the most current version.
I've bought a new WD 120 gig hard drive in advance of my Maxtor 80 gig failing - SMART alarm. In trying to solve some other problems and mirroring the drive, the 120 gig is now listed as a 33 gig.
BIOS did show the drive coming up correctly - previously. I do currently have a 60 and 80 gig install which bios sees properly. BIOS is at latest update.
I've tried WD SW, partition magic, fdisk, format, all options stop at 33gig.
Why would the BIOS now see this 120 gig lower - auto or manually. What could I've done to the drive and how to reverse.
i have a memorex swivel that is supposed to be 4gb, when i first got it, it was reporting 4gb, but i don't know what happened, i was copying some files over from windows 98SE, when it said it was getting full so i started to delete old files, that's when the power went out (I was using my desktop computer) when he power came back on, windows 98SE reported that the disk was corrupted and couldn't be used, so i formatted it, after formatting it, it said the capacity was 1.9gb, now i can only format it as 1.9gb, i want the other 2.1gb back, what is going on?
I assume you mean "Memorex Swivel"?
How are you formatting it? What is the status in Drive Manager?
Test it on another PC. It's very likely it was damaged during the power outage. If it can't be formatted properly on another PC, it is very likely damaged.
I have a 120 gig harddrive mounted in a iomagic usb portable enclosure and it only reads 31.4 gigs. I am running windows 7 64 bit, piease help !

Just installed WIN7 - and now my second display won't show the correct size. When booting the computer the picture fills out the entire display, but as soon as I have to logon to windows it decreases to a sad sad size which I'm completely unable to change What to do?
I assume you have Catalyst Control Center installed? If you do, start it; click the GRAPHICS tab at the top left; select DESKTOP DISPLAYS in the drop down menu; click the black triangle of the display you want to change the properties of; click PROPERTIES in the drop down menu; select the resolution for your display; click apply, then OK.
In Windows: Right click on an open spot on your desktop; select SCREEN RESOLUTION; select the screen in question and choose resolution.
I have this problem that's more an an aesthetic issue than anything, but it's rather annoying. I have my icons set to be rather large on my desktop, and I download custom icons for everything to match. About halfway through the day, about half of my icons were small, for no reason. I've tried refreshing my desktop, restarting, deleting the icons and remaking them, and changing the icon, then changing it back and none of that has worked. There has to be a solution I"m not aware of, and an internet search hasn't helped. Any suggestions?
Just right click on your desktop then click on "view" and choose medium or small icons !!
I just took a slave drive out of one computer and put it in another and I don't want to lose the files on the slave but windows is showing it's a 47g hd and it's a 100g hd and when i try to explore or view the files it shows nothing just a blank page :\ Anyone have any ideas?
Are the jumpers set correctly? There may be a change needed on the jumpers for the other drive on the cable since some are different depending if there is a slave present or not.
Try making it a master on the second channel.

So I have a new computer and everything was running fine. But the next day I open my "uninstall a program" and it's saying outlandish sizes of things. I have the game Oblivion and it's not saying there is a size while as Network Magic is 32.6 GB which is HUGELY wrong for it's only a couple of MB. I am not that good with computers so googling help got me confused with registrey key and stuff because I dont know how to access this. So, I restarted computer and everything but it's still wrong. Please help I don't know what to do or if this is dangerous
Is there anything wrong with performance of Win7 or the programs themselves?
Run SFC -SCANNOW Command, report back what it finds.
If it finds no OS corruption and you have no performance issues then I would not worry about it.
I noticed a post about this but it is closed so i can't reply. I was having troubles in Microsoft Word, when i would insert a background picture it would blow it up to twice the size so i would only see a portion of the image. I figured out its the resolution that makes it distorted so by changing my image to 72 dpi from 150 dpi it fit perfectly into my word document. Hope this helps others with the same issue!
Hello I have a thread running in the Devices and hardaware section about my pc having problems booting from cold start Anyhow i have nearly sorted it now as it was a faulty motherboard I put in a nd hand motherboard and used a sata gb hard drive with a gb ide drive Installed windows and then i went to try and restore sytem image using windows but when completed it was nothing like what was on my pc before it broke The system size Windows image wrong image file in the windowsystemimage folder gb Anyhow while Windows system image wrong size looking on here i found out about restoring broken image files using Macrium and tried that When it goes to make an image it says the file is gb but on the vhd it has a size and free space are the same as minus equals hope it makes sense so i dont know where the gb file size comes from It looks to me the gb is a backup and not a full system image but it was in the windowssystemimage folder Any ideas very muck welcome
I have tried to put my sytem image back using Macruim and following the tutorial on here but it kept saying something like couldn't find image or something like that.
I will try again later.
I still dont get the difference in the file sizes maybe when i done the image it went wrong and only saved the data and not a full system image.
I went to turn on the computer and was getting this error CMOS Memory size wrong Press F1 to go into setup Press F2 to load setup defaults. I was unable to load defaults and when tried to go into setup it just went to a blank screen. So I tried replacing the CMOS battery and now I cannot get that far. It turns on you here the fans and the power lights on the panel and DVD’s but it’s like in a loop the light come on the DVD’s then extinguish then about 20 seconds later lights come back on. I am getting no picture, I have tried reseeding the battery and discharging the CMOS and nothing. Does any one have any other ideas?
