Can't stretch browser to full height

Q: Can't stretch browser to full height

Ever since received my new laptop comes with default Windows 7 Pro 32bit, I realised got this issue been laying in my unit. During initial start-up, the browser will looks normal and fit to screen. However after a while, it shrink to a size which I can't adjust it to the max full height on my screen.
The brown area on top is my desktop background and the area coverage from my browser is already max from what you can see. I can't seems to be able to drag it and cover the the brown area to make it fully fit my screen. It doesn't only affect my browser but to the rest of my applications as well.

What's wrong with my system or is there any settings I need to look into it?

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.)

So about a few weeks ago (not exactly sure when it started) my computer stopped allowing me to access certain websites. It started out with only a few, but now it is almost 50-80% not connecting. I do not think it is a problem with my browser. I typically use Firefox, but IE will connect to the same ones Firefox allows, and will also not connect to the same websites Firefox will not allow.

I have searched these forums for a couple of hours now and nothing seems to fit my exact problem, and I am hesitant to use the solutions from other forums because it might further hurt my system. I am not tech-savvy/computer literate to say the least, and I would need a thorough walk-through on how to diagnose the problem, as well as how to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:Unable to connect to most websites -- not a browser problem

How are you not allowed to view the website? Does the page show "The page cannot be displayed"? or you are not authorized or something else?

Try running cmd.exe, type "ipconfig /flushdns" without quotes.

About two days ago I started getting popping and crackling noises from my laptop speakers while playing any kind of in-browser video. It's not a hardware thing, because anything run outside the browser (CDs, iTunes, VLC, DVDs, etc.) sounds just fine. Tested in both Firefox and Safari, both have the popping/crackling problem, so it's not something with one browser.

I have tech support for this computer (Dell business model, Latitude E6500 w/XP), they tried updating sound card drivers, updating BIOS and uninstalling and reinstalling sound card. The last thing actually fixed it, until I started up my PC tonight, now the problem is back again. Anyone have suggestions for me? I really, really don't want to do a restore, because I've just spent the last four hours installing a game that I would then lose. If that's the only option, though...

Don't seem to have any issues with connectivity, or lag that I can detect.
 

A:Speaker noise only in browser

Uninstall and Reinstall Adobe Flash Player, in-browser video's use Adobe Flash player and since it is browser only related this may indicate there's an issue with Flash/the codecs for flash.. Just do a reinstall, post back with if it worked.

Greetings Let me start by saying that what I am about to describe is NOT a malware virus problem It does involve a browser being redirected to the wrong website but we have checked repeatedly and to the best of our abilities we have ruled out malware or viruses Windows desktop Internet access is through ethernet wired redirect browser/website a -- challenge/mystery Got through a router that also provides wireless access to other devices in the house What we have is a single computer in the house out of desktops laptop and tablet that cannot reach a single specific website an SMF forum using Internet Explorer or Chrome It CAN get there using the AOL browser What happens with Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect IE and Chrome is that the browsers are redirected to another non-malicious as far as we can tell website that resides at the same Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect webhosting service as the website we are trying to reach Tracerts and Pings go to the correct site Other users as in people all over the country can reach the correct site Other computers in the same household go to the correct site using both wired and wireless access This appears to be a very computer-specific problem It does not seem to be an IP problem because the other computers in the house are not encountering it and it is not a website or network problem because no one else is running into the problem Any thoughts The only other piece of information that seems pertinent is that back in July this same computer suddenly could not reach the quot target quot website at all no matter what browser was being used All browsers would stall and time out or give a quot website can not be found quot type of message Tracerts and pings failed completely The tracerts said that the website could not be resolved and never generated even a single hop At the time we consulted a number of people and the only explanation that seemed like it might have merit is that it might have something to do with the MAC address Someone else suggested that it had to do with TCP IP settings We never got it fixed The problem just half-corrected itself about two weeks ago and then went sideways to the current situation What s different between IE amp Chrome versus the AOL browser that could explain this If you have an idea please use dummy talk I m fairly good with computers but networking and IP protocols baffle me Thanks Macgyver nbsp

A:Got a challenge/mystery -- browser/website redirect

Login as a Admin on that system.
Get a command prompt and enter these two commands:
ipconfig /flushdns​net stop "dns client"​quit the browser and restart it. Now access a good site (aka this one) and then a site you are having issues with.

What's the results?

I bought a 7970 about 5 months ago and since then I have had some horrid problems with any game. While this may only happen once a week and causes my computer to crash if I do not end the game fast enough, I am concerned. I have not had heat problems and it happens at random times. Is there a fix? Want me to upload a screen shot of the problem? Thanks for the hlep.

Gents, built my own machine last year and installed a 60GB SSD strictly for Win 7 only (have two other HD's installed for storage and programmes)

Lately im getting alerts to say my SSD is now full and after doing what I could through the tools on Win 7 I was only able to free up 5 GB's What the hell is on here? Win updates? Everything I do is directed to my HD on the E: drive

Alternative is to buy another - can you transfer the root HD to another HD? really didnt plan for this, I know 60GB isnt that large but it was only ever to use as a boot drive.

Suggestions anyone?

Hi I recently bought a blackberry phone (at&t) and unlocked it in jamaica (to use all networks) but even with my plan on it says "your device does not currently have any browser configuration service book"
and that I'm to check with my service provider to enable the browser.
Digicel (service provider) has sent this over 15 times and still no success I cant get on to the browser at all to select options or got o or so forth.

It's a bold 9000 and I've checked the time, did battery pulls, wipe the phone, update the OS to version 5 and still no success.

I can use BBM on my plan and check emails so the plan works and opera mini works on wifi but not on plan, the browser doesn't work at all.

I live in a 3 story house and the modem is on the first floor.. I had a netgear wndr 3700 and I got full bars on my laptop while in my room. But when I do a constant ping to www.google.com I get high latency and dropped packets. I step one step threw my doorway and the signal cleans up. Its weird due to the fact that I have full bars. I figured hey try a new router so I got a linksys ea4200. Same thing full bars packet loss. not sure what could cause it.

Hey everyone, recently I purchased another 8Gb of Kingston HyperX RAM and installed it into my computer which already had 4Gb. However, Windows 7 Pro 64-bit says 12Gb installed (6Gb usable). I think it is an issue with my motherboard but I'm not too proficient with this so I'd like to seek some advice and whether this can be overcome. My system specs are as follows:

Intel i7 870 @ 2.93 GHz
Asus P7P55D-E
Asus ATI 6870
Kingston HyperX CL7 4Gb Kit (Originally purchased)
Kingston HyperX CL9 8Gb Kit (Purchased today, the shop assistant told me that they no longer bring in the CL7 due to it being too costly. They told me my CL7 would function as a CL9 once I put my new kit in)

As mentioned before, I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit version.

Thank you very much for your help!

This HP Tools partition is not meant to be accessed outside of the HP Utilities. You can delete the E partition to gain hard drive space, but like I said the E drive is only accessed when you enable the appropriate HP Utility. You should also see a Recovery partition

A:Computer does not have full power

What are the components and power supply? Over time PSU's lose some ability to output what they did new. They can also just die. Unplugging DVD drives isn't going to give you very much additional power because they only use a couple watts on startup.

I recently installed Sound Forge Pro 10 onto my computer that uses Realtek HD Audio.

In its Options I can select - Microsoft Sound Mapper, Direct Sound Surround Mapper, Windows Classic Wave Driver and ASIO4ALL V2.

From the Realtek Manager I can select and record from - Microphone, Line In and Aux but there is no way I can select the output directly from the sound card. e.g. what is playing on my web browser. There is only silence.

Am I missing something or is this not possible with Realtek HD Audio Manager?
 

A:Realtek HD Audio not recording sound from browser

I think you are referring to the 'Stereo Mix' audio device.

Try this:

Control Panel > Sound
go to the 'Recording' tab
Where it lists the recording devices, right click in an open area and make sure that "show disabled devices" is checked, and see if Stereo Mix pops up.

If it does, then right-click > Enable, and select that as device to record from.
If it does NOT, I'm both surprised and sorry to say that I can't help you with that.

Note: Stereo mix is the COMPLETE output of your computer, so that includes things like Skype, beeps, pings, Media Player and so on.

Hello guys this is my first post in this forum.

I work in IT support, and I came across a problem with someone I work with.

Guy called Tony, had a USB stick in one of his front USB ports on his computer, he accidently kicked it and broke some of the USB off in the port.

He has 2 ports on the front, and now when he plugs something into the one that isnt broken, a cooling fan at the top of the computer goes crazy, and it cant be stopped until the computer is shut down, and the USB doesnt register on the computer.

Is this a problem with wires? Or is it just a problem where the ports at the front need replaing all together?

Thanks!

Hard to say at this state.

By "a piece broken off", do you mean Mr. Tony broke the flashstick so that the USB-male is still plugged in, but the drive itself has been detached? Have you removed the piece which is still inside? (It helps ) - also, which OS is the computer running? This is sort of important, as different OS's works (a little) differently regarding the USB-ports.

Currently, it looks like you simply need to remove that piece stuck inside. Although if that doesn't fix the problem (or if there is no piece stuck inside), then probably a connection or two inside the port broke when the flashstick was kicked - resulting in a need for changing the entire port .

A:How can I full screen a game on VGA -> Can I full screen it with settings?

Resolution/aspect ratio

Sounds to me that ether you need to change the resolution in the game or your aspect ratio to match your monitors.

The Acer C: drive is now full and the Data D: drive is empty, but it is not recognizing it automatically. This computer is my brother's, he bought it new and has it at my house. It came formatted with no disc's and I'm not sure where his books for it are. Can anyone tell me how to activate the second hard drive so I can use itunes and download video, etc.

It would be very much appreciated. My brother uses the computer here but it has been here for at least 3 years maybe and the book is misplaced. He mostly uses it for youtube, facebook, and stuff like that and is less computer educated than I am at tech stuff, which isn't saying much.

Thanks in advance for any help.
 

A:Aspire AST690-UP925A 250GB SATA hard disk first drive full and won't go to 2nd

Boot into Bios, usually by hitting F8 as soon as the POST screen appears and see if the hard drives are both recognised. If the spare drive does not show in the Bios it either has a fault or it is not correctly connected.

What OS is on the PC.

A:Can external hard drive be used for full internal hard drive?

If you want to take out the drive from external hard drive case and install it in your desktop/laptop, then usually you can. Usually external hard drives are just ordinary hard drives accompanied by some extra controller to make it able to "talk" via general ports (e.g. USB). However I am not familiar with digital elements 2TB , so I can not confirm it. But I do have WD external drive, which I had positively confirm that its real drive is just ordinary hard drive.

Note that if you decide to do this, I suggest to find experience people to work on extracting the drive. If you do it yourself you will risk to damage it, and you don't want that since usually opening the closure means voiding the warranty.

Hi, I'm experiencing a problem with watching videos (YouTube and the like) in full screen mode. My system is three years old with all specs in my profile. Specifically the problem is that when I start a video from YouTube or wherever for that matter, and I click on the box giving me the option to watch the video in full screen mode, the video box will attempt to go to full screen then will revert back to the initial box size. What can be tried to correct this?

I'm sure the question in the title is very noob, but I just assumed that full HD monitors would connect to the graphics card via a HDMI cable?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Why do monitors that are full HD not have an HDMI port on them?

Not really necessary, DVI carries the same video signal as HDMI ... just no audio. You can use a DVI to HDMI cable for your connection.

Hi there,

I just purchased a 1TB Samsung Story Station. I am backing up some files from my PC and get an error message before it even reaches 30gb saying that the hard drive is full?

When I first got the drive I connected it to my PC and put some files on it. Since then I have also connected it to my Mac and and takes some files from my PC and transferred them to the Mac using the Story Station.

Can anyone tell me why I am getting the error message saying it is full when there is only around 30gb being taken up?

Thanks.

Hi I had a Dell Dimension e Recently my video card it was an upgraded card not the original had a small fan in it but overheating always not speed, fan on System full overheated I replaced it with the original video card which works fine The overheating seems to have been caused by the heat sink and system fan they are attached being clogged with a System fan always on full speed, but not overheating large amount of dust I tried compressed air and even a small brush but could not get to it I resorted to removing the heat sink from the processor removing the dust cleaning the old thermal paste off and reapplying new thermal paste The computer is now running normally except that the fan is stuck on high speed I downloaded speedfan and system is running cool I have tried updating the bios this did not fix it Speedfan does not recognize my fan settings and i cannot modify them using it I opened up the case and found the System fan always on full speed, but not overheating fan connector on the motherboard unplugged it and replugged it no change Computer is working and not overheating but this is really annoying I am considering replacing the fan any other suggestions nbsp

Discs being burned on haven't changed and I haven't changed any of the programs settings..

I'm thinking of building a PC case to measure, and would like an owner of a Thermalright Venomous X to confirm if the spec stated on the website is inclusive or not of the little bits of heatpipe sticking out the top.

Before anyone asks; I'm in the "thinking about it" mode with this case, although I'd be doing all the measuring, layout and building a cardboard version before actually going all out and building it out of aluminum and fibreglass.

Given that its made to measure, for an ITX case, I am hoping to make it as small as possible, but I would still build some tolerances (wiggle space). However those bits sticking out will still put a huge dent on the final build if it wasn't included, so a quick "yes its included" or "no its not" would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Wondering about Venomous X height...

Don't own one but from scaling this and this I'd say the 160mm quoted is to the top of the exposed heatpipe ends.
I've installed the Prolimatech cooler and found that it's o.a. height also matches it's listed specification.

I have been having this problem as long as i can remember, but i finally got the time to ask around.

When i put almost any video in full screen, the video works fine for a couple of minutes, but then the picture starts getting laggy and so does the sound. But when i takes it off of full screen it works fine.
I have checked all updates for my video card, and almost every piece related. I have a GeForce 9800M GTS 1GB.
And i don't think its a virus because i do have a scanner/firewall.
PLEASE HELP!

I use win xp pro, and I just installed Windows Media Player, but why the player stop playing in full-screen mode? It's ok minutes ago. I know this question is kind of stupid, any one knows how to fix it.
 

A:Why does the Player stop playing in full-screen mode?

It is a feature of Windows Media Player, not a fault
It will automatically pause when manually selecting "Full Screen" (I suspect just to allow you to get ready)
You then need to press "Play" to play it again

Can I also suggest that you try another Media Player > Free VLC Media Player
It does an excellent job at playing most movies (anyway, much more than WMP) And is very easy to use, and I use it

The computer I'm working on says it has 13.6 GB of used disk and 309 MG of free. The Vaio case says it has a 120 GB hard disk. I deleted some programs but I haven't been able to delete enough to run defrag or check disk. Is there a program I can run from a flash drive that will help? Or perhaps one to transfer files to the other internal hd or an external one? Also system tools doesn't have backup listed.

CCleaner (Note this is the "portable" version)

What are you using to test the speeds? It was never a high speed laptop in the first place, but it has always been a darn good and reliable one.

Large hard drive can make a difference if it is 100 GB or larger... using the Dell version of Windows... the system wastes too much time checking empty space.

Be sure you have WXP SP2 installed, but hold back on WXP SP3, as SP3 protects Microsoft, but slows down an already slow laptop.

i'm not sure but this is what i would try:

Make sure wireless is turned on, on the laptop as some have a switch specifically for that.
Make sure that you do not have a third part wireless network connection program running.
From start, settings, click network connections. right click you're wireless connection and select properties, click the wireless networks tab, make sure the box is checked where it says "use windows to configure...". then below that click and remove all the preferred networks that are there. then click okay and attempt to reconnect to the network via searching for available networks and double clicking your desired network.

I have a Dell Vostro running Vista Home Premium I started noticing that when playing games sometimes performance would go down considerably which coincided with doesn't Laptop and speed fan reach overheats full the laptop being considerably hotter to the touch I Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed installed speedfan to check if this was true and as it turns out the gpu can reach up to C without the fan going full speed I can hear it run but not full speed The fan might reach full speed but not necessarily when the temperature is at is highest which means that the laptop usually overheats when playing videogames I m not sure if this Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed has happened since I purchased the laptop or after upgrading BIOS I Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed currently have the latest BIOS from Dell A and the latest reference drivers from Nvidia for the videocard which is a geforce M Can it be that the overheating is due to using the reference drivers and not the manufacturers I used the reference drivers because Dell hasn t updated videocard drivers for almost a year nbsp

A:Laptop overheats and fan doesn't reach full speed

What games are you trying to play on that computer? Hopefully they are not that demanding because the Vostro isn't great for newer games. Also make sure that you are not using it on a soft surface (bed, rug, blanket, etc).

The drivers for your video card should not interfere with your fans since it is all integrated into the same motherboard.

Hi-Newbie here,

Recent history: I downloaded Internet Explorer 8 and immediately had some problems with it. So I had a Microsoft tech help me remove IE8 by using the System Restore. I now am using IE6.

Now, when attempting to use my flash drive the PC thinks it is full even though I have deleted all the files. I looked at the flash drive Properties and indeed it was shown as full.

I then formatted the flash drive and after that the Properties showed it as empty. I once again tried moving one or two small files on to the flash drive and the PC tells me the drive is full again.

The flash drive capacity is 256 mb while the files I attempted to move total only a few kb?s.

Anybody have ideas on what is happening and how to fix it?

Thanks!
 

A:PC thinks the flash drive is full when it isn't

Hi Nossamr, are you by chance using vista or windows 7?, the reason i ask is i wonder if when you plug in your flash drive if it is defaulting to dedicating your flash drive to being used for ready boost.

I found this on the ASUS site

or you might try clearing CMOS first, doubt it could hurt and it's easy.
But I also saw that, if you received a support disk with your machine, there should be a BIOS recovery/update program there.
I hope one of these will work for you. Good luck and thanks for posting your system specs.

I've tried entering the ip, I get to the password, I have the computer name right, but I can't get the password to work. The password is stored on all the computers, but I don't know how to access it. Not going to just reset the password because then I'll probably have to redo the router settings. The same password that worked for Wii and 360 does not work on the computers. In the connection properties, the password is only displayed as 8 symbols, which is less than the password that worked normally.
 

A:Cannot access router through browser

Sorry but you will have to reset the router to its default settings. Write down your passwords and store them in a drawer from now on. Rerun the routers setup software. It is not that difficult to do

About 10 mins ago, looking at web pages, etc everything was moving really slow, like a sluggish feeling. But after playing a game for about 5 mins, i exit the game and back online again and everything is moving fast.

So what was causing the sluggish?
 

A:Sluggish in web browser

Other than being a problem with your ISP, the slowness could be caused by other programs running in the background or you have too many things loaded in your startup folder. Is your computer free of viruses and other malware? Do you keep current with all the MS updates?

Hello, Ive just recently reformated my driver to a fresh reinstall of vista. But somehow my driver is still half full, the capacity of my partitioned hard drive is 109GB. When I checked the remaining space, I only have 77GB which is weird because I havent installed any programs yet.

I dont know what caused it, Its already using 32GB. I checked my program files and its only using 1.1GB the rest is only 3GB.

This is one of those too many irons in the fire stories. I switch from DSL to Clearwire. In addition I brought another computer up. All the computers are running Windows 2000 Pro. Getting the Clearwire WiFi up was no problem. Getting all the computers to see each other in a workgroup is. The problem is "The server list for the workgroup is not available". I can work around that by either putting in the IP addresses for the Zoom ADSL X5 switch/router, or unplugging the patch cables and plugging them back in, and all the computers will see each other. Then I can't get to the web with any of the computers. My thought is since I'm not using the DSL on the switch. I need another switch with a dedicated port for the WiFi modem. Any recommendation?

Thanks,
Larry
 

A:Win2K browser service and Wi-Fi

First, be sure every system can ping ALL of the others using the IP-addresses; this proves TCP to be running correctly.

Second, make sure each system is using the same gateway address;
get a command prompt and enter
ipconfig /all
​If this is correct, then each should be able to ping www . google . com and the browsers should work

Next, make sure all systems are using the same WORKGROUP name

However, it can't connect to the browsers. Both IE7 and Firefox.
No, it's not set to "Work Offline." No, it's not using a proxy server, if I go to IE7 settings.
I also checked for spyware, there was nothing.

I just installed window ME, I got a very small display in the centre dose anyone know how do i get the display full screen?

A:How do I get the display full screen?

You probably need to install your video card or intergrated video drivers. Doing that should correct the issue.

Look in the device manager and see if you have any yellow ?'s or !'s..To access the device manager do the following:

1:From the Start menu, select Settings, and then Control Panel.

2: Double-click the System icon, and then click the Device Manager tab.

Alternatively, you can do the following:

1: On the desktop, right-click the My Computer icon, and select Properties.

2: Click the Device Manager tab.

*Edit*

System specs can be quite handy to have:
Model/Make of your computer
Motherboard model and make
CPU make/model
RAM ammount and brand
Graphics card make and model (if you have a card and not an intergrated video controller)
Hard drive(s) make/model/size

You require the Sound/Audio drivers for your model of computer and Windows version. You can search for this yourself at your manufactures support web site.

Or

A:RAM not being fully recognized, and not running full speed

You might not have anything wrong. 32 bit operating systems, whether XP or Vista, will not recognize the full 4GB of RAM, a 64 bit OS will. The 3.25GB is about right.

Keep in mind your RAM is DDR2. DDR is double data rate so it will be reported in the BIOS and CPU-Z at about half of its rated speed.

So my laptop has this weird issue with the numpad. Sometimes this computer works totally normal like a standard keyboard. But other times, like now... It changes the keys for a 15.4" laptop's numpad:

u = 4
i = 5
o = 6
p = *
j = 1
k = 2
l = 3
; = -
m - 0
/ = +

Now, this is a 17" computer, so it has the numpad and everything. It's an HP with Windows Vista Ultimate on it. Any help or suggestions would be great.

A:"recovery drive full." error message Hewlett Packard Pavillion Hp dv2500

Actually what concerns me more is, I wonder if you have deleted files in your recovery partition.
It's usually hidden from inside Windows, so I expect no. But by chance did you receive a Windows CD or just a recovery partition (because the recovery files may now be gone)

As for the location, think of it this way, it will show all areas that you can backup to. I think even the floppy drive (if you have one) this is to give you the full choice, instead of putting restrictions on your own computer (which most don't like)

That's why.

any suggestions what I should do I really dont want to format though.
thanks
 

A:Hard drive full but doesnt look to be

There must be some space on the drive not being utilized but still there.

Did you partition the drive originally?

Maybe you need to backtrack.......

You could use a program like Partition Magic to manipulate the drives contents....

Is it possible to run two full screen games (like Half-Life 2, FEAR, UT2004 etc) at once, with one on each of my two monitors? I know this would obviously be very stressful on the computer, but I think my PC could handle some lower end games like UT2004... the problem is that all full screen games open on screen 1. Is there some way to make them open on screen 2 and have two running at once?

Just FYI, I am not talking about games like Supcom which use both screens. I'm talking about having two instances of a game running with one on each screen.
 

A:Two Full Screen Games at Once?

I don't know of any way to do it under 1 OS (except just launching both at once, but I imagine you tried that). Aside from maybe having 2 users logged in at once and each running a game.

You could probably do it with 1 running in a VMWare'd OS.

I run a large Tv as a monitor through an HDMI output, but almost all of my games will not run in full screen. I have read about windowing games, but it seems as though no 3rd party software exists. Aside from windowing a game is it possible to reduce the entire display size on the screen so that there is a blank border around a fixed windows resolution?

I run:
Windows XP
Onboard Video (Radeon)
Athlon 6000+
37'' LCD HDTV

I ned to find out whether it is my CPU, another component, or HDD ???

When I bring up a browser, IE6, Firefox, Flock, my system becomes quite unresponsive, with CPU Uage History staying at 100% for quite a while, while I do nothing. If I type something within a browser, it stops for a while after 8-10 characters, then brings out the rest in spurts.
This started a few weeks ago with Firefox2. Then I downloaded Flock and it worked fine for a while, as did IE6. Since last week, all browsers have the same problem

My system is a Dell 4100, PentiumIII, 1 GHz, 512 memory, lots of HDD space.

I have no problems with Eudora (E-mail) or any other appllcations. E-mail still works., as does typing and send/receive.

Any diagnostics would be welcome. E-mail me to [email protected], since I have problems using my browsers.


Thanks for any help.
