Preferred Solution: How-to Replace The Font ?

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.)

A: How-to Replace The Font ?

I would say delete the old font, reboot, then install the new one. No safe mode whould be needed.

Hi there,

I wanted to know if there is a method I can use to use a specific font instead of the other.

Actually, I visit websites written in Arabic and Urdu language and for some reason, the words are broken on almost all websites and besides that the default font the Windows supports for arabic/urdu doesn't provide too much readability.

I have this font "Jameel Noori Nastaleeq" and I would like to force IE use this font instead of default arabic font. I hope you guys got my question.

Thank you for your time and I hope you'll reply on your earliest. Thank you, once again. Take care!

A:Replace this font in IE with other

You can chosse what fonts web pages used, but I don't think you can add a custom font to that list. It is possible that if the font is installed on your system, it will show in the list.

Change the colors and fonts used for webpages

If you change the Language script drop down to Arabic, there are several choices on my system. If you haven't already, you can experiment with those. Be aware that if you use the 2nd option on the link above to override the font from web pages, it will use that font for every web page. A Guy

Is it possible to do a find and replace for all words written in a different font? The document is in English. I lost the font I used for Greek words in it. How can I substitute a new Greek font without having to retype every Greek word.

I saved the Hebrew font when I wiped the disk, but forgot the Greek one.

Is there anyway to replace a font with a new font(a font that is used in the regional input language) in windows 7.

there was a software called "font fixer" which helped me to replace the "MV Boli" font in the regional language input. But that software has compatibility issues in Windows vista/Windows 7.

I have replaced the "MV Boli" font with a font called "Faruma" before.

so i there anyway to replace the font using a method like registry edit?

pls help!

I'm not sure I really know what you mean by 'replace' here. Why can't you just install the font you prefer and use it as normal?

And if you've done it before, why can't you do it again?

Hey guys,
So I'm wondering If I could get help with getting a font to be used in the system. The font I want to use is this:
(traditional) AR Tianniu B5 - Free Chinese Font - Free Chinese Font

However the font name is in Chinese:
called '最新版心形中文甜妞体智能机专用科'

I'm trying to use this font as a system font on my English Home Premium Windows 7 64-bit.

I've tried changing the fonts the normal way via the 'change window colors and metrice' way in the control panel. However, the font I installed doesn't appear as an option because the font name is in chinese?
I tried to change the font name to English, however it makes the font invalid.
Any help?

Replace the replace the or jack power corner Replace the power jack or replace the adapter? with the power plug still in it the little metal plug of the AC adapter is now slightly crooked and the power jack has a little chip off the plastic part of it Anyway after this mishap it worked fine for another weeks and then suddenly this week it s refusing to power up Its battery has been shot for a while can t hold a charge and I ve been using it with the battery out Why the sudden refusal to boot I took the whole thing apart---minus the little chip the power jack looks totally fine and cosmetically sound Put the whole thing back together taking care to check that plugs were snug---still no power Stuck in the crappy battery booted just fine and then shut itself down after like minutes How likely is it that it s the power jack which is broken And why did it take this long to crap out if it IS broken A new one of those silly jacks costs over on eBay so I want to make sure that it s the jack before I just up and buy one Of course if it s the AC adapter that s broken that would cost even more Bah Input nbsp

A:Replace the power jack or replace the adapter?

AND/OR inside the case the the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. Is also possible that
1) It's already cracked
2) If not yet, it's gonna crack

So look to see what connection looks like between power jack and motherboard, If you feel u wanna/can re-solder yourself or the typically price to redo the whole power thing seems to run $125 parts/labor/warranty if you take it somewhere. So how much is it all worth to you?

Coolpix 5900 or Canon Powershot SD300, need advise please

I am torn between Nikon Coolpix 5900 and Canon Powershot SD300. There are both nice compact digital cameras, prices are comparable. I care about the macro function as I am going to shoot a lot of close up pictures. Coolpix's macro is 1.6 inches, and Powershot SD300's macro is 1.2 inches, not too much differences.

So which one should I get? Anyone has any experiences and opinions?

I've been struggling with an issue that I hope someone here can help resolve. A few weeks ago, I suddenly started seeing this ugly font (see images below) on many webpages.

I think this issue began right around the time I installed some other fonts, but I am not sure. Initially, I figured it was a Chrome thing but have since confirmed the issue extends to IE and Firefox, leading me to believe this is a Windows issue. By the time I tried to revert the changes via System Restore, it was too late (restore only went back a few days; maybe I need to adjust settings there?).

I tried to reset the default font but Windows does not seem to respond to that. When I click "Restore to default font settings" the button greys out but nothing else happens. No dialog box and no change in the issue.

Any ideas?

So I know how to install a single font in Windows 7 and in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder I can see a font family and when you double click it opens up the font family and then you can see the different font styles for that family (i.e. bold, italic, etc).

But I am trying to install multiple font styles for one font family. The file names are all different. It is for the font TrumpetLite and here are the file names:

So it's Bold-Italic, Bold, Italic, and Normal. But when I highlight all 4 and right-click and say install it keeps asking me if I want to replace each file. So it will only install on style, not all 4. It does the same when I drag n drop the files into the fonts folder.

So how do I install all 4 of these font styles for TrumpetLite?

Hi guys, I'm a graphic designer who recently got a bunch of fonts, opentype files, and when I installed one ("Helvetica Neue Light Condensed") it somehow changed my browser default font. So unless there is a specific font used by a site all defaults are now Helvetica. I run Google Chrome as a browser and though I checked all of the font settings on it it seems that all is normal.
I tried to delete the file but it tells me that it is in use in another program. I can delete other font files though.
Any help would be appreciated, Helvetica Neue Light Condensed has awkward kerning that mesh letters together in all the wrong places.

I have a font with two subtypes; Solid and Outline. At some point, solid has disappeared, and the existing copy of outline cannot be deleted - thus, it cannot be replaced.. I know several of the fixes out there, that the program that is using it cannot be forced to close without crashing the OS, I've tried deleting the existing files via NexusFile, with apparent success - however, upon trying to re-install these fonts afterward, Windows asks me to replace the existing fonts, which no longer appear on the list at this point. I'm out of ideas, and really need some help, as I've found a file I created with the font needs to be adjusted, but cannot be without access to the font.

Hi Miro,

In Windows 7, the default theme font for Windows Aero is Segoe UI.

In Windows 8, the default theme font for Windows Metro is Segoe WP.

You can change the font by editing the theme in Windows 7 (right-click on the desktop → personalize).

You can't change the font in Windows 8 as the feature was removed.

Hello colonelmustard, welcome to Seven Forums!

I would do a system restore to a point before you installed the font manager, then if you want to give it another go see if installing it in compatibility mode will help it do what you want; see the 2 tutorials at the links below.

Ok now its been a while since my pc has not been working Ive had it for just over a year now One day i turned it on and it would get to the Bios splash page but it would not go any further There were no beeps nothing All fans run and from what i remember hard drives would start spinning too I thought maybe it was a replace that replace.. is the To to or question. not PSU problem as the PSU would have very subtle flickering sounds almost like sparking cables However after taking the PSU to a technician they said it was working fine This cost me AUD What he then told me was that it may be the mobo But before i go and send it to a proper technician and fork out X amount of money id like to get your opinion As i mentioned above The pc turns on doesnt boot past the BIOS splash screen and just stays there There are odd noises from the PSU Here is my setup ASUS A N -SLI Deluxe AMD Athlon PC- x gb CAS To replace or not to replace.. that is the question. Corsair DDR mem Radeon X GTO Iceturbo Thermaltake w power supply Maxtor gb Maxline III WD Raptor GB Creative Audigy ZS I have not had the guts to take anything out and test them individually But has anyone had or heard of this problem before What could it be about the motherboard that would also make the PSU make that noise Is it just a safety mechanism of the PSU SOS nbsp

A:To replace or not to replace.. that is the question.

Hi and welcome to Techspot!!

Test the RAM sticks individually. One of them might be bad. You can use Memtest86 to try them out.

Also, try them in different memory slots. That sometimes helps.

Hey guys, I wanna change some fonts and font sizes on my computer but I don't know where/which ones to change in the Display settings. The text is very small on some places and on other places it's normal size (at least what I think). I've circled the text I want to change with RED and the text that is GREEN is the text that I'm ok with the way it looks now.

Monitor is set on 1600x1200 resolution. I know that makes everything smaller but I've had this resolution before I reformatted my PC but all fonts and font sizes were normal then.

A:Font/font sizes

I don't get why would you want to change you text. Is possible but could be very dangrous, you could even need to reinstall your system if is really bad. I think you could do it by find the driver folder in C: and use the text from microsoft and replace some of the font, it could take long and hard because the window files are hard to replace some of the text.

I ask because I purchased a Lenovo laptop (Ideapad 580N) that came pre-installed with Windows 8 which is a nightmare. I recently upgraded to 8.1 because it supposedly had some Win 7 features, instead, it has been worse than Win 8. I've never removed one Win OS and replaced it with another and I have not purchased the Win 7 OS software yet. Is there anything I should know beforehand? HATE is a strong word, but it's the only word appropriate as to my feelings of Win 8 and if possible, I would like to get back to Win 7 asap. Thank you.

Hi, I have a question with E-mail.
I was wondering if after the 2 years I've had this computer if I should change from my Yahoo! & Gmail accounts to Windows Mail, if that's possible.
What are the pro's and con's of switching to Windows Mail?

Hi Rance, I am unsure about Yahoo but you can access Gmail via Windows Mail. To use Windows mail you still need a provider whether it be your internet provider or the likes of Gmail so i dont see any reason to change anything except enabling your provider from within Windows mail.

Which fan?

If its the power supply fan, its essential. If you cook the power supply, the HP only replacements are very expensive, and standard ones usually do not fit.

A:What should I replace?

For what it will cost you to upgrade it to play games, I would just suggest saving for a new computer.

First, you'll need to install a video card. If the model you have is in a micro-tower, it's not likely you'll be able to find a video card to fit.

Second, you would want to upgrade the processor. Even though it's apparently dual-core, it's still extremely slow.

Third, you would want to upgrade to 4GB of RAM.

And then to support it all, you'd likely need a new power supply.

So like I said...your best option would be to clean that up, sell it, and buy a new computer when you get the money.

Hello, On my motherboard this morning when removing a faulty graphics card, the little white clamp at the end of the pci express slot broke. Is there anyway to replace or fix this? I was thinking of gluing it somehow but the last thing I need is for the glue to melt and cause more problems than it solved. If it involves sending it off to a technician does anyone know the avg cost to replace the white clamp or complete pci express slot? If you need more info on what type of pci-express slot it is it was holding a nvidia7900 gtx OC. I'm hoping I didn't just ruin the whole motherboard.

You can boot from the Vista DVD and run the Memory Test to see if it has any memory errors. From there you can decide if you need to replace the RAM. You could also reseat the RAM (take it out, put it back in making sure it is in good).

Hi all,

I've got a little bit of a dilemma here, I've got a 3.5year old Dell 8300 with the following specs:

3GHz P4
1GB Ram
X700 Pro
225W PSU (or thats what i suspect)
Ive got a standard PCI slot.

The issue is whether to replace whole thing and get Kentfield extreme with 8800GTX obviously spend will be around 1800 for base unit or to replace graphics card (and probably PSU) and wait for Yorkfield chips later in the year, which are expected to be cheaper to produce with more speed and lower power consumption. It's just id like to play some games even with minimal detail during the year (well except Crysis which would give my system processor failure just at the sight of the box).

What would people recommend and on graphics card front what replacement would offer best value for money given my system.

Many Thanks

Have a friend with a 9-month-old Dell Inspiron laptop who's had nothing but problems with Win XP. We've deleted the main partition and reinstalled XP, but problem (inability to maintain a modem connection) persists. It may be just a bad modem, and Dell is sending a new one, but he just doesn't like XP, and asked if it's possible to put Win 98 on the computer. I use Win 98, so am not familiar with XP, but know that XP uses NTFS instead of a FAT, and can't find anything that says whether or not it's possible to reformat the drive for a FAT-based Win 98 system. Is it, and if so, how (i.e., can I just boot to the command prompt, type "format c:", and hit enter)?

A:Replace hdd with SDD

See the following video list for removal and replacement of the hard disk. ( hard drive assembly) What you will need is a SATA mobile 2.5" SSD to replace the legacy spinner hard wisk with. I highly recommend that you replace it by cloning the current disk to the new one.  That is the simplest method. See the sticky I created  in this section  of the forum for details on how that is done. An SSD of 256 GB or higher capacity is recommended as a replacement for the legacy hard disk currently installed. An SSD of 256 GB or higher capacity will allow for use of the Recovery media that you created with the HP Recovery Media Creator utility. See the following links at to see what will work. You can only use SATA, SATAII and SATAIII interface SSD disks. None of the other interface types are compatible with your notebook's systemboard and BIOS !!!

I don`t think you should replace you hard drive just yet.

The fact that you`re getting lots of different stop messages, could be a symptom of faulty ram.

Download the memtest86+ programme from

If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

Let the programme run for at least seven passes.

I would remove the fan then see if you can match the size with this or similar from Ebay :-

You will have to match the electrical connector as well so check how many pins are in the board socket.
You may have to use some force to disconnect the present fan's power cable from the GPU board.
It is a plug/socket connection isn't it ?

A:Do I need to replace the HD?

Maybe not. Lets focus on your "low voltage problem". Bad power can cause data corruption. Bad power can also permanently kill off hardware, such as a hard drive. We need to first establish if you solved your power issues, and how.

Did you replace the Power Supply? If so, please post manufacturer, model # and rated power output of your current PSU. If not, post the voltages as reported in BIOS.

Lately, I have been getting computer crashes where my monitor loses a signal from the computer, the gpu fan goes to 100%, and my computer becomes unresponsive (shutdown keyboard command doesn't work). This happens more and more often, to the point where it crashes before the computer can even post. However, when I open up the computer and jiggle around the connections, sometimes pulling out cords and re-plugging them in, this seems to completely fix the problem, until a couple days pass and the process repeats. I am certain I have a loose connection somewhere, but I'm not sure where. Should I replace the power supply or the motherboard? Or could something else be causing the issue? Thank you for any help!

A:What to replace?

I would start with swapping in a known good pw supply. While the case is open, get a bright light and give the mb a VERY close inspection. Look for any capacitors that look like the pics below.

At random, XP will restart on its own. The computer was built less than 2 years ago and I'm not quite sure if it's a software or hardware issue. AMD 2600+, 1.9 ghz, 512mb RAM, windows XP, radeon 9600 graphics card.

I find the computer crashes when it's put under a heavy workload. For instance, I opened Spy Bot S&D to rule out any infections and within 30 seconds of running the application the computer restarted. This occured back to back just moments ago. Other times I am using WORD or browsing. This has been occuring for more than 4 months now.

I've ran a CPU application to max it out and again the computer restarts. It occurs everytime I run the program.

I also monitored my RAM while it performed and only 50% was being utilized.

How do I know it's the CPU and not the Motherboard or HD?

Spobot Killed the Computer in the Den with the Fireplace Poker

This isn't "Clue" we're paying, you say?

Spybot uses 100% of the CPU. Your box could be entering thermal cutoff.
Use canned air to clean out the CPU/ heatsink, and just for good measure the rest of the insides as well.
Find out if your board has hardware monitoring and find what the critical zone temperatures are. You may have to install either the board manufacturers monitoring software or a utility like "Speedfan', available here at Techspot.

HI iv noticed recently my psu fan does'nt spin on start up, despite the pc starting up normally and working fine.

Sometime i turn off and on then the fan will work also.

Do you think i need to replace my PSU or could it be something else?

A:Should I replace my PSU?

What is the make and model? This is not sounding good what you describe. A good working PSU is the backbone of any system.

Give us the rest of your system hardware including make and model of your motherboard, amount of RAM installed, harddrive and video card. This will help us help you if you feel you need it.

Should i replace my 3 month old power supply? I have no issues with it, but am a little worried because it was a "cheap" one.

Its a HEC/ winpower 850 watt.

Ive read a few reviews about HEC power supplys in general and they seem to get pretty good reviews. My pc needs around 575 watts to run according to my gpu manual. Does anyone have any experience with this brand??

Thanks in advance!

When I installed Win 8 Pro on an old laptop with Win 7 32-bit (dual boot configuration), I do not remember seeing an option for installing either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 8. My System shows I have 64-bit and I am having trouble locating video drivers for my 6 year old Toshiba Satellite laptop. I found people with a similar problem on an NVidia forum and they put together a 32-bit driver version that supposedly works. I did not mean to install the 64-bit version. Is there a way to do a reinstall, but this time select Win 8 32-bit? Is there an option for it If I just do a clean reinstall?

A:How to replace Win 8 Pro 64-bit with Win 8 Pro 32-bit?

Hello Stan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The installation of either a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8 is dependent on if the installation media is 32-bit or 64-bit.

If you like, you can use the tutorial below to download a 32-bit Windows 8 ISO file from within any 32-bit Windows computer that you can use to create a bootable installation DVD or USB with.

Hope this helps,

I bought a new 400w psu with my new case. (my mother board had been flakey with lower watt models and wanted to be safe.) It runs great however the fan is a little loud and I'm looking to quiet it down. I was going to replace it with an Enermax 80mm since they're speed ajustable and quiet. I don't come close to using all the connectors provided. I run a CDR, DVD, HDD, floppy and two case fans off of it. Would it be safe to replace it with a potentially lower RPM model like the enermax?

Hello prissyellowsmom, Welcome to TSF!

Without a Retail version of a Windows? XP Home? SP2 CD, there is absolutely nothing you can do.
The only solution would be to go to a reputable Computer Store and purchase one.

Sorry there's no magical cure.

I have a Netgear Duo RND200 NAS drive that has died after five years. It stopped becoming accessible suddenly, I'm unable to browse or access it's control panel. Additionally it won't shutdown when I hold down the power button for a few seconds, it remains on. It contains 2 x 1.5GB SATA hard drives that are RAID1. I'm assuming/hoping that the data is intact on one or more of the drives and want to take those into a new NAS, a D-link which is on order.

I've had a look at the user guide for the D-Link DNS-320L, it doesn't cover how to introduce drives with existing data onto a new NAS. Should this / is this possible?

Thanks very much.

Does anyone know if I can install XP home over XP pro without formatting my hard drive? If so will my applications still work or will I still have to reload everything?

Are there any precautions I need to take before doing so if it possible?

A:Replace XP Pro with Home

Greetings vinbarbato...Welcome to TSF.

My advice to you is to firstly back-up all your important data; then possibly, reformat the HDD, and proceed with a 'fresh' install of Xp Home.

Alternatively, you could install Xp Home as a second o/s and have a dual boot on your drive.

But before you go taking heed of what I have just said, could you please give us details of your HDD set up, in that do you have 2 independent drives or not? If so, what are the configurations of them?

Do you have one drive that has multiple partitions?

Do you have only one drive with one single partition?

Please post back with this information first.

A:How do I Remove Win NT and replace with Win 95.

Don't use the NT setup disks to boot the PC. Go to a Win98 PC and create a boot disk and also put and fdisk.exe on it. Boot to that disk, change to the A: prompt and type fdisk and enter. Select delete partition....option 4 I believe, then select delete Non-DOS partition if it is an NTFS partition...confirm the deletion and esc to the A: prompt again. Reboot to the disk and change o the A: prompt and type in option one to create a partition....confirm the creation and reboot. Now you should be able to boot to the disk and either run format C: /s from the boot disk or use a Win98 setup disk to begin the installation. I don't have the link for a good boot disk with CD-ROM support, but there is plenty of info out there to tell you will give you all the links you could want
