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.)

Hi there What I mean by a patchy internet is I could disconnect from the internet for like mins and then come back on this could happen like times in a hour or times Now my household is a medium to heavy user s of the internet Me I rely on a good internet as I play poker for a living and also I like to play the PS so it s frustrating when the internet becomes patchy We have like devices that will use the modem most of them connect through wireless No one really streams anything or downloads music movies etc etc We recently changed ISP when we was with Patchy Internet our old ISP we never had any major problems like this We are also using the same router that we bought any help would be great Thanks in advance If you Patchy Internet have a question about anything post and I will get back to you as soon as I know the answer nbsp

I'm sure a lot of people have this problem, and it's seriously killing me.

I don't normally notice it, but any time a game is loading or a song or video is buffering...it just stops. I know this is likely due to a short screwup in my connection.

What I don't know is why my internet bounces offline, then back on or how to fix it. I'm hoping I just need to put filters on all my phone jacks, which will be done shortly.

Please help, as I have run out of reliable sources.

I also have a wireless router, if that makes a difference.

If you are using DSL and don't have filters on ALL the phone equipment EXCEPT the DSL modem, that's an obvious first step!

we will go over old ground i'm afraid here

1) you have zonealarm, as a virus product do you also have the firewall - make sure you remove all firewalls an use the removal tools - give us a list of what has ever been on the pc and we can give the tools address

2) have you gone to the manufactures website and updated the driver or actually re-installed the driver

3) quite a few things to try below
a) tcp/ip reset
b) ping tests - please do all three - would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.
c) Change DNS servers and see if that resolves the issue
d) Uninstall the driver and re-install
e) Post an xirrus screen shot
f) Have you looked into channel interference - the xirrus screen shot will help with that

I have a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 that I am using. Sometimes the cursor just sticks and won't move properly and I can't figure out why. I am trying to use it about 10-12 feet from the tower where the receiver is plugged in. When I use the mouse about 2 feet from the receiver it works fine. I thought this mouse was suppose to cover a 30 foot distance. I also have the router right next to the mouse's wireless receiver and not sure if the 2.4 GHZ Frequency interferes. I have tried new batteries and downloading updated drivers, but had no luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.
 

A:Microsoft Wireless Mouse with patchy performance!

You have pretty much determined its a distance issue. Distance can vary by the quality of the hardware and any interference within the room. Not too mention it's a notebook mouse, so the primary concern wasn't in achieving great distance.

Is the receiver out in the open?

I know on my computer case, the case extends out beyond the rear USB ports for the receiver and the mouse hardly worked 2 ft away. It worked fine when attached to the front panel of the case, but that wasn't conveinent so I used a USB extension cable to move the receiver under my desk over by the mouse.

Hello

System Specs:

HP/Compaq 8710p laptop
Windows XP SP3
Kaspersky Internet Security

Symptoms over past few months:

After using computer for many hours (8+) performance drastically degrades and the screen display eventually becomes patchy with text and graphics missing. At this point the computer is no longer functional and must be Shut Down. Sometimes a forced power off is required as it won't shut down normally.

After re-boot the computer is back to normal but the problem is consistent.

I occassionally get the "Blue Screen of Death" with reference to "nv4_disp.dll". This has happened approximately once every 3 months over the past year. Eventually I re-installed the Display driver but this hasn't changed the situation.

I have run Malwarebyte's Anti-malware and Kaspersky Anti-virus scans regularly.

Any ideas you have to help resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Becky

A:Performance degradation & video display becomes patchy

Have you noticed the machine getting hot when the graphics errors occur? Download Speedfan (free app) and monitor your CPU and more importantly your GPU temperatures. Check your temps with the operating temps on the chip manufacturers site. If yours are getting too hot it would explain the slow performance and graphics errors.

To resolve first check your fan is running properly and the fan and heatsink are clean from dust/hair. Also consider cleaning off the old thermal paste and applying a high quality paste to the chips.

What is the BSOD error code?

Hi. I have a problem with videos. This is that whenever I play most videos, the colours go screwy and graphica lartifacts appear.

Here is a pic:

ARGHIES! TEH COLOURSZORS!!!1one

Scary, huh? This doesn't seem to affect the sound or anything like that, it's just the video.

This doesn't happen on quicktime files, and sometimes it also works with normal movie types without the screwy colours.

It's really annoying, so I was wondering whether anyone knew the problem with it and how to fix it?

Thanks.

I suggest that you look for an updated driver for your graphics card, and download it and install it in accordance with the instructions on site.

If you do not find one, make sure you have the CD that came with the graphics card and then go to Control Panel > add remove programs > and remove the program for your graphics card. Reboot and reinstall the program from the CD.

Hiya

Have a problem on my pc, and I think it may be due to the red colour.

The problem, is that when I'm online, the colour red has a bit of an edge to it, like its slightly ghosting. Checked this by going to Paint and typing a capital i, I.

I compared all the colours, and the red one only gave this problem.

Does anyone know where the colours are stored, so that I can experiment, to see if it is the cause?

If it is, I can't believe I have a brand new video card on its way

Thanks in advance

I only have the option of choosing 2 or 16 colours.Is it something to do with drives or something. there must be an easy answer, thanks!!!!
 

A:how to get 256 colours

try installing your video drivers for your graphics card, and any other troubles you have you will probably have to reinstall the drivers for that componet, right click on my computer go to Device Manager then look to see if there is any Exclamation points or Red X's on the componet I am assuming you are using Win 98, if there are any you must install the drivers for that componet.

Hey in Display settings, how it has the Colours option as: Highest [32bit] Medium [16bit]

Does the colour affect performance? Like if i used Medium 16bit, would i get better game performance?

Also my current Desktop Res is: 1440x900 If i changed it to something like, 1280 ? 1024 would it also help game performance?

Thanks for your time:D

A:[Help] Colours: 32 vs 16

Yes and yes.

Changing both of those values to the lower setting does give better performance (as in better FPS) but you lose quality. Note that you don't have to change the desktop settings at all, most games have their own settings that they force on the system, so change the settings in the in-game graphics menu.

Its a balancing act, between quality and performance, the balance is entirely up to you.

When clicking it it will bring up a drop down menu where you can choose your colour code, or use the slider. BUT if I get told a specific pantone code, and want to type it in, where do you type it??

Same with folders on the Desktop. So I tried to fix it, on the main Desktop I right clicked and went to properties, and changed the modified theme to Windows XP. Before I did that, the Folders looked something like this...

I don't know what happened. The computer was all fine, then when i booted it up earlier it only had 16 colours. I changed the display settings and the wallpaper was fine but the rest were still in 16. Then the next time I booted up, its 16 colours 640*480 and it will not change to anything else but 2 colours. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers but it didn't work.
When I booted up after uninstalling as was suggested on other threads- it installed the standard PCI graphics adapter- i don't know if this is what it had before, and I can't seem to fine my motherboards? drivers-- would this work. its a Targa screen- and i went to the site and was lost.

Browsers have the option to sometimes see differing colours in the address bar based on the security level presumably of the URL.

Documentation on what all the colors represent has been impossible to find.

I have searched everywhere and have not been able to find anywhere a legend for these colors. The best I've been able to find is a webpage referring to IE9 that mentions the colors red white yellow and green and what they represent.

But there are many other colors i.e. blue, orange etc that I see as well.

And I don't use IE anyway (currently use Pale Moon).

Where can I find what all the colors mean?

A:Washed out monitor colours?

It sounds like you may be missing the red input. Do you see any red, or pure white? Unplug your monitor and re-connect. Check the end of the plug. I believe red is on pin 1 of the connector. Make sure no pins are pushed in. There may be one pin missing, pin 10, I think. That's OK. If the cable is removable at the monitor end, reseat that, too. You could also try flexing the cable, especially at the ends. Worst case, it could be your video card.
Good luck!

My taskbar along the bottom which should be greyish/black is several different shades of the two at different intervals, my desktop background is the same as are my photos. When i watch downloaded videos they are fine, as are word documents and games.
Any help would be massively appreciated.
Regards.
 

A:Zebra effect colours

Sounds like a video card memory issue or the incorrect drivers installed for the video card. Was it working fine at one time?

Hi,
I had problems with a couple fonts after I upgraded to XP SP3, so I undid the upgrade and reverted to SP2 (not without a few problems of its own).
I now notice that some of the font names in my FONT folder are mainly blue in colour with a few in black. Amongst the ones in black are those that caused problems in SP3 --- could anyone explain the significance of these colours?

Blue indicates the file is compressed, black is not.

A little while ago my computer decided to start up in 16 colours and in 640x480 resolution. Whenever I try to change it back it says it has to restart before the new settings can take place, but when it restarts its exactly the same.Ive tried clicking the "apply new color settings withiout restarting" tab in advanced display properties but it makes no difference whatsoever.Ive got windows ME.Can anyone help?
 

A:Cant change resolution or no. of colours

Try changing one thing at a time. Change the colors to 16-bit then restart. upon reboot, change the resolution & if it asks, reboot again. That should work unless you're constantly rebooting in safe mode.

My computer monitor seems to have changed colours all of a sudden and I'm wondering how to fix this problem. It was operating fine 10 minutes ago when everything on the screen changed to a blue tinge.

The contrast/brightness, etc monitor buttons don't seem to be doing anything, neither does fiddling with the video card settings. What else could the problem be?

Loose VGA cable. Make sure both ends are secure.

recently win 98 se was reinstalled on my system and the
doofus who did the job for me screwed something up
because i am only able to access 16 colours. i have the disk with
the drivers but i don't know which one to install. the disk contains the following folders:acrobat, bitware, cirrus, ess, ie40, lucent, and rockwell. if anyone can make sense of this PLEASE HELLLPPP!!!!!
 

A:16 colours are drivin' me madd

That disk appears to be drivers for a sound card not the video card. Do you know the make and model number of your video card? If not, if it's a name brand PC, what's the make, model# and CPU speed of the PC and then do this,

Start>Settings>ControlPanel>System>DeviceManager. Click on the "+" next to "Display Adapters". What's listed under it?

Hi,
I've just replaced the colour cartridge in my HP 940c deskjet, and it has stopped printing colours correctly. looks like yellow is missing. It is a genuine HP cartridge, obvioulsy the cartridge is the prime suspect, but does anyone have any other ideas?

Thx,

Andy
 

A:HP 940c - not printing all colours

Stand the print-head end of the cartridge in warm water for 5 minutes. About 1/2" (10 mm) of water.

If the ink had dried and blocked the cartridge this can often help.

If you replaced the cartridge with a "refilled" one and not a new one, thats not uncommon. Sometimes the refiiled ones just do not work well at all.

A:change certain cell colours in VBA

Hi Klami,
I think I can help you if you help me understand what you are trying to do.

Your macro colors rows based on the number in the cell, not the last digit. Do you want the code to find the last digit? The formula is right(target, character).

I am not sure what you mean by non adjacent cells. As the code runs to through do you want it to skip a row if the row above it has a color?

I don't know the use of the 'mg' variable. Are you expecting some condition in the range to impact the code?

Is row 100 significant or did you put it in the code to stop the macro? Would you like it to stop at the last entered value in column F? That may save some time if you only have 20 rows- it would stop rather than keep going until 100.

If you take a few minutes and add more about what you are trying to accomplish, I think we can get you the code to do it.

I reinstalled windows 98 on my Compaq presario 1246, but now I only have 2 and 16 colours available, as well as only 640x480 pixels. Under display Adaptors, I only have Standard PCI Graphics Adapter (VGA). Before I had more colours so why don't I have them anymore? How can I get more colours (ex 256, 32 bit etc)? Does the driver have to be updated? If so, how and where can I get the update?

Hello,
I'm typing this in red as an example of my problem. If I tried to do this in a Word document on my computer (which is new, but don't hold that against it), this is what would happen. And vice versa. Other colours are the opposite of what they should be as well, probably all of them, I haven't tested them all. I cannot think of a way to solve this problem. Can you help? It is not a printer problem.
Thank you.

Basically what I want to do is colour code my records according to their numerical values (within a continuous form in Access 2000) e.g. If I was colour coding my records by using my clients D.O.B I could do something like this:-

Over 80 = "Red"
70-80 = "Orange"
50-60 = "Yellow"
30-40 = "Pink"
20-30 = "Green"
Below 20 "Blue"

How Do I Do This????

Hi Problem Colour red showing as Black My screen was working fine until I replaced the Male to M SVGA VGA to a longer one then the screen resolution went funny like really zoomed in so i changed it back to the old one and now it s kinda lost Funny colours!! screen it s colour I know Funny screen colours!! it s not the monitor or connections because we ve tested on another computer I think it s just down Funny screen colours!! to the computer graphics card So could anyone please give me some advice on what the problem could be I dont think a wire could affect the screen outcome Ive uninstalled and reinstalled new drivers and once the nvidia driver was uninstalled and i restarted the pc the screen colour was still showing as greeny The startup words which are normally white show up as greenish If you want pictures ask me and ill Funny screen colours!! camera some Thanks Below is suppost to be a white background but its displayed as greenish

A:Funny screen colours!!

I would plug in my old cable and see if it goes back to normal. Try going to a older restore point, one before you starting changing things. Try this; right click on desktop and select personalize at the bottom of drop down. Look to the bottom of the screen and desktop back ground and pick a color.
Have you installed or updated any thing around the time of this problem?
