I just bought a lumia 950 from the microsoft store in the US does it have dual sim as described on the store specs page?
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.)
Yes, it should have it.
The only way to not have a dual sim one is if you bought the AT&T Lumia 950.
Microsoft showed off a whole range of new PCs and devices running Windows 10 at Computex 2015, but one that really caught the eye is the Quanta Compute Plug, an entire PC integrated into a power plug the size of...
They may be handy to a lot and even have very reasonable prices but I can't imagine myself ever wanting any of these.
Much of the lure surrounding Microsoft's long-rumored Surface Mini was the notion that it'd come in at a lower price point compared to its full-sized brother. That project was ultimately scrapped and instead, we got the Surface Pro 3 -...
This was sounding so promising then I got to 2GB RAM....
Have a look at your PC now - if you are running next to nothing over standard windows services, then you are probably somewhere around 1.2GB. Add an email client, some virus software a few Chrome Tabs and you will already be swapping away to page file as the OS starts to worry about memory and things will start to grind. How much would 2 more MB cost? Shame as otherwise it sounds quite a capable little machine.
Advise please online store with comfortable (logical works and gives tips) and beautiful (imageable already assembled system unit) assistant (step by step wizzard) on the compilation of components for the PC. Interested logic operation, the system prompts and visualization method. Thanks in advance.
I don't know of a PC part picker wizard, unless you count Dell/Apple custom builds.
Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.
Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!
A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?
Any luck with this?
Recently bought a MS mouse.
Have found that when I move the scroll wheel up or down more than really slowly
a little round icon appears with an up arrow and a down arrow. If the cursor is
above the icon, the page automatically scrolls upward without stopping, and the reverse for the cursor being below that icon. It starts without warning and always goes farther than I want and it goes so fast it's difficult, at best, to react to it before I'm way past what I want to see.
When I click, the thing goes away.
Any way to totally delete this annoying feature other than throwing the mouse away and
getting another Logitech?
Wow I know that feeling. I had a MS mouse that did the same thing. Never could figure out how to stop it from doing that. I search over the internet and never found a answer. Even tried its support site. I ended up getting rid of it and going back to a Logitech.
Good morning everyone,
My database at work has hit a snag. Whenever I open it I get this error (see attach.) Once I click on yes, it still does not open. It just shows the loading circle (Vista) constantly...
A colleague and myself are the only ones who use this database - it holds 17,000+ files that we have to track. Hers works fine, albeit slowly.
Any help out there with this one? Always appreciated.
I am running XP SP 2 on Intel Motherboard DH55TC, Core i5 CPU. UAA High Definition Audio class driver is resulting in high hardware interrupts that uses upto 10 to 12% of CPU. The interrupts goes away if I uninstall UAA Bus driver through Device Manager. But this also disables RealTek audio driver which means I hear sound no more.
I tried updating the UAA driver to Version 1.0a but still the hardware interrupts wont go away. Please help how to fix this issue.
Download the Realtek drivers here Realtek drivers, you want the third one down, Windows 2000, Windows XP/2003(32/64 bits) Driver only (Executable file)
I have a laptop that I want to store long term. I do not need it now but don't want to sell it. Can I store it for a year or 2? If so what steps should I take to do it safely? Thanks
Just shut down the PC. The laptop may run out of battery power since Lithium Ion batteries tend to drain, but just remember to plug it in when you use it again. Just shut it down, unplug the power chord (if not on battery) and store it.
Why doesn't my microsoft lifecam work with windows 7? Is there a simple way to fix this problem?
We would need the model number to tell you a reason to why it is not working, and if there is a fix.. If there is no supported driver for windows7, you may need to attempt to use a Windows Vista driver and run it in compatibility mode.
If these options are not possible, you may have to purchase a new one.
Please reply back with the model of the webcam.
Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp
I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.
I have a mixture of domain and workgroup computers on the network and wan to have them all visible in Microsfot Windows Network My Network Place Group - Machine amp Machine are on workgroupA with its not Computer Microsoft in visible Windows Network own subnet and can see each other fine Group - Machine amp Machine are on the domain and can see each other fine Group - Machine amp Machine are also on the domain however on a different subnet and it too can see each other fine If I am on Machine it only sees Machine When I am on Machine it can not see Machine or however it can see Machine The same goes for Machine can t see any other machine except Machine even though its on the domain I have a WINS server in place in Group and it WINS see all the machines as Active Registrations But when I go into My Network Places on the WINS server it only sees machines in Group which are Machine amp Machine DNS entries are setup correctly with correct hostname and IP so I m lost as to what is happening here Sorry of this sounds confusing nbsp
My understanding is that
a given system(A) may be attached to a domain OR
unattached and accessed in a workgroup; mutually exclusive.
That says your request is not possible
I've been playing games for more than 12 years with KB+Mouse and have never used a controller before. Games are becoming more and more controller optimized and I have an Eyefinity setup that would give a better experience with a gamepad, so I decided to get one
I've narrowed my options to Razer Onza TE BF3 Edition (Wired):
And Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows :
They both seem pretty good, but have heard very mixed views on razer products...
Which one is better ?
Do you already own a wireless 360 controller? You can use a 360 controller on your PC if you add one of these. I use it and it works fine.
I have three 7200rpm HDDs that are used for data storage and currently connected via SATA II, USB 2.0 and eSATA, respectively. Once in very rare blue moon, I may reorganize them and transfer data from and to each other. Other than that, I'm content with speed I'm getting from them and there's no urgent need to upgrade to SATA II or SATA III for this particular application.
I did consider getting a PCI SATA II card but those have their own set of compatibility/reliability issues.
Now, I'm wondering if USB 2.0 is good enough for my 3 HDD storage needs as is or should I ditch the USB 2.0 connection and upgrade my mobo, which has 2 SATA II ports, to a new mobo with more SATA II/III ports?
You would get better performance if all 3 drives were using the same interface connections
My razer deathadder recently died and I couldn't afford another one, so I went for something cheaper
I got the intellimouse 3.0 and i'm not too impressed
I have the pointer speed set on the fastest setting, but when you are moving the pointer around slowly it jerks in increments of of a millimetre or so, and its quite frustrating when gaming, especially in sniper situations
Is there any way to make it smoother?
If you haven't already, install the intellipoint driver. Although the mouse will work using the native Windows driver, you will have fuller use of its capabilities if you install the latest driver.

I have to put away my laptop for about 3 months, should I take any special care with the battery? Should I leave it charged/discharged? Connected/disconnected?
I don't know if this is important with modern batteries, but maybe someone can clarify this. Thanks
Completely discharge the battery, but that's the rule for any battery. Store the battery separated and disconnected. Maybe in a laptop bag, that would suffice.
I recently reinstalled windows xp on my ibm t43 but now I can't connect to the Internet. I've tried everything I know which is very little, but I can't find the wireless conection that is in my house.
I'm in need of some help... Please

I am new to Exchange Server 2003 and I have a friend with a network server that I don't know how to re-establish a user to the network. I moved one of his non used computers to this station and now when I try to log in the user I get the error that the name can't be verified because Outlook is not connected or online. This computer used to be online with a different user. Can anyone tell me the steps to check this? Thanks.
You would benefit from the server handbook or an outlook manual... too much to explain here in usable terms, methinks.
Hello I recently bought and installed the Flight Simulator X Acceleration Pack X Flight Simulator Microsoft in my laptop but when I play it I have a poor performance such as low FPS and chopped gameplay so I have weather scenary and traffic in very low but Microsoft Flight Simulator X for the resolution Microsoft Flight Simulator X it is the same for my computer to use a low one x than the higher one x Does anybody know how I can fix it My laptop has the following specification Acer Aspire Z OS Windows Vista bit with DirectX Processor Intel Pentium dual-core T GHz MHz FSB MB L Cache GB RAM BG HDD Video Card MB Mobile Intel Graphic Media Accelerator X Chipset Mobile Intel R Express Chipset Family Controller Version I am not sure if it is because it uses a lot of CPU resources or if it is because of the processor or the Video Card I have other games as Age of Empires and it has a high performance even if guns are firing Thanks nbsp
Everybody complains about this. I think the program is a resource from the jump.
Now FS2004, that will run great on anything. And it doesn't have to be activated.
I am connected to a network domain. When I go to My network places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network>Domain I can see all networked computers when I am wired in but when I connect wirelessly I cannot. I use a "Wireless access point" connected to my firewall router. I have tried disabling the wireless firewall and assigning a static IP. I am logged into the domain but the only way to can view the other computers on the network is to connect through a wired connection. I'm thinking it has to be a setting in my Wireless router but I cannot figure it out.
when you connect via the wire, and via wireless is the ip address,subnet and default gateway in the same range ?
I noticed when I turned on my computer today it said it was unable to install some drivers. I look in my device manager and it has the yellow exclamation mark by the following:
Microsoft 6to4 Adapter
Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #2
Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #5
My system is a Dell XPS 630i on Vista 32bit home premium.
I immediately went to the Dell site and installed all the latest drivers and the bios as well but this did not fix the problem.
I am able to connect to the internet. Is this a problem and if so can somone wizard help me troubleshoot it?
Cheers in advance
Delete these drivers in the Device Manager and restart your system. See if Vista reinstalls these automatically
My Microsoft Habu mouse freezes when at some game servers, I play mainly DFX and in some servers where plenty of action is going on, the "nice" mouse freezes for several seconds, about 5 to 10 seconds....specially if I swirl it.
My PC is home built with an Intel Q6750, 22 inches samsung lcd monitor, G 15 Logitech KB, 4 G memory Mushkin, GForce 280 Video card, nfORCE 780I MOBO,Thermaltake 750 PSU, several fans and a V1 cpu cooler. I run Windows XP Pro 32.
Any idea why this is happening, the driver version is 2.12 and firmware is 2.03 on the mouse. I am about to dump it to the garbage can, any suggestion about a real good and reliable mouse, cost is no issue...
Go with a moderately priced Logitec gaming mouse
when i try to change the font in excel or word it freezes and then crashes. but it doesn't do this with power point or one note. i have reinstalled it, deleted the normal.dot thing but nothing seems to work. and yes i have done the Microsoft diagnostics but it says that it should be working fine. so it would be nice if some 1 knew why this happens and how to fix it
any 1? come on there must be some 1 that has had this happen to them and know a fix for this
We have a new WSUS server running WSUS 3.0 sp1 on Windows Server 2008. I'm new to this so I was wondering if anybody would know it's it's capability be to deploy non-Microsoft installs and upgrades. I'm specificially thinking about Adobe products (mostly Adobe Acrobat). We will need to upgrade all of the computers on our network from version Acrobat 8 to version 9 pretty soon. Will there be a way to do that? Will there be a way to deploy updates when they come out? Or just one or the other? Is that pretty much up to the individual vendor? Do they have to make a special package that we put on the server? Or can we make one ourselves? Would that be hard?
Hello i am new to this forum so please excuse my ignorance I bought a Microsoft Lifecam VX- quite a while ago So after Installing the product successfully I get a message to connect the webcam The little bubble pops up in the bottom right hand corner and what comes up is the following message Found New VX-3000 Problems Microsoft Lifecam Hardware A problem occured during hardware installation Your new hardware might not work properly So after I got that message I did the next logical step Uninstall and Reinstall After going through everything I still get the error message Next I check and see if Microsoft Lifecam VX-3000 Problems there is new software on the Microsoft website for this product Luckily for me there was So I go ahead and download and install it LifeCam exe but unfortunatley it still doesnt work So i go into Control Panel to add new hardware but that comes up with the error message Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware The driver may be corrupted or missing Code I also took it to a relatives house to try it on there computer and to my horror it worked perfectly So it must be something to do with my computer Any useful help is appreciated nbsp
If no one can help me with my problem, can anyone point me in the right direction on where I can resolve it. (Other than Microsoft Customer Support that is, that's definitely a last resort).
I currently have a pc that was windows 2000 that is now not working. I recently put a new hard drive into the pc and it currently store all my music (itunes) and document flies. I would like to if it is possible to take the hard drive out and connect it to my other computer externally. The only other issue is the other computer is running on vista. Is it possible to do this?
Yes, you can take that hard drive out of the 2k machine and read it just fine in Vista. What you can't do is take your OS drive from 2k and boot another machine with it, but I don't think that is what you were asking.
Ok, so i got kinda a blue screen yeah . I tried to start a video chat on msn, well the computer decided not to like that. Anyway, now i get this message every time i try to install my sound drivers
"Microsoft bus should be loaded into your system before installing realteck HD audio driver"
Using onboard sound.
Googled, read, looked around, ran windows repair, help? pls? thanks guys
after googleing, i found 2 potential solutions:
Right click on My Computer, go to Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. Look for any yellow bubbles next to the devices. If you see any, right click on it and click install driver. Select the option to find the drivers yourself, the next screen should allow you to browse and navigate to that folder. If the drivers still don't install then go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com in IE and get any hardware updates you can get. The MS bus driver might be an update you need to get.Click to expand...
I installed WinXP once more, installed SP2 and then the Sound Driver.
Again it didnt work.
Then I remembered that i actually had changed a sound card setting in the bios. (No i did not diasble the soundcard )
The case i have installed this Mboard in has a front pannel.
And the Mboard has a front panel connector.
To connect the front pannel I had turned to the manual to get the rigtht pins set up.
The manual states on page 2-31 that:
"The default setting for this connector is legacy AC'97 audio, if you want to use the High Definition (Azalia) audio features, set the AC97 & Azalia Link A in the BIOS to Azalia."
Well this case does not use a high-definition audio front panel, so of course i had diasbled the Azalia Link i Bios.
(It was enabled in the Bios even when the manual said that the default setting was AC'97, ow well ... )
For "fun" i just tried to put it back to the setting it was when i installed the Mboard (Azalia), and then, bingo, the sound card worked in windows.Click to expand...
seems like a very rare problem.
Lots of valuable information in that file I'd like to access. I was able to create a new Outlook file in safe mode so I guess the program is OK.
It was suggested to me recently the cause may have been due to me having Microsoft Service Pack 1 at the time. I had not updated to Service Pak 2 (which I now believe has been updated to Service Pak 3). Has anyone had experience with this and, if so, do you think there's a chance that if I update my Service Pak that I might still have a chance of recovering the data I had in my original Outlook file?
I dont think just upgrading to service pack 3 would do any good.
May be you need some more luck there.
Hope you get the help you need
Hi everyone. I have purchased a newer printer and I am looking for an online store to buy
remanufactured or compatible printer cartridges from. I would like a store with
some sort of free shipping program and cheap prices. Does anyone have any suggestions
on where I should go online to buy my ink cartridges? Thanks in advance!
Depends a bit on what brand.
I'd suggest www.tylermartin.com Their site looks like it was coded by a 5 year old, but I've been dealing with them for at least 4 years, never had any issues with them. They don't have free shipping, but their prices are low enough that you can afford shipping.
Been trying to solve problems with my graphics card for ages think i've finally found it
in IRQs i have about 100
"Microsoft ACPI compliant system"
why do i need so many?
is this a error?
i was hoping someone would know something about these and why i have so many.
just got me worried when the list appeared with loads of them on,
OS: Running vista ultimate 64bit & XP Home with 2 Hardrives
Case: Coolermaster Black NVIDIA Edition Stacker 830
Power: CM Realpower 850W Modular PSU
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme Edition QX6850 3.0ghz Kentsfield
Motherbaord: Asus Extreme Sriker II 780i
Controllers: Scythe Kama-Meter Multi Functional Controller
Memory: Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 Dominator PC2-8500C5 TwinX

Storage: 2 x Samsung SpinPoint T 160GB SATA-II
Sound: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeMusic 7.1 Sound Card
Graphics: 512MB BFG Tech 8800GTS
hope someone can help.
That is not a normal thing imo.
Make sure your Advanced setting for Plug and Play OS is set to Yes.
Then, under Power, set the ACPI APIC Support to Disabled for now.
Boot and see what, if anything, changes.
I just bought a Razer Reclusa keyboard and the only problem I'm having is that it does not "power up" so to speak until after post. If I needed to get into the BIOS I could press [del] a million times and nothing would happen. Once windows starts up, it works fine. Is this just the way the keyboard is? I'd appreciate any info.
Haven't looked up that keyboard, but I think I know what it is (the fix) anyway.
You need to get into your BIOS (with another keyboard, ideally PS/2 if you have the connection)
Then set Enable for USB Keyboard/Mouse support
I think that may be a bit of a mind teaser to do, but I'm sure you'll work it out
Well I was in the market Zune Microsoft 30GB for a new mp player as I broke my old Creative Zen MicroPhoto and ended up buying a Zune on ebay they are not actually available for sale in stores in Australia First Microsoft Zune 30GB off I was expecting a much larger box for it to arive in I was kind of suprised that it was as small as it was not that its really small though The layout of the box is kinda neat though Headphones that came with it are pretty good for default earbuds they also are magnetic and have small little clips on the back so you can clip together back to back Nifty and rather handy I have found Video quality is very nice for an mp player I think Although I dont use it for video just music I have watched the little videos that came on it I thought they were very nice quality It has WiFi novelty maybe but not a feature I really care about and think I will ever use Interface looks nice and performs well although I do prefer the interface of my old Zen MicroPhoto I am dissapointed that you cant use the device as a portable hard drive I have read that you can do a couple of changes to your windows registry and it will show up as a portable hard drive But I dont really care about this I have flash drives that are sufficient for my portable storage needs Its not perfect and has no extraordinary features but If you are in the market for a mp player and don t like iPods as I do consider a Zune If anyone has any questions about the Zune I will be happy to help you as best I can nbsp
Did it come with the new firmware ? When the second generation of Zune players came out, it was officially possible to upgrade old Zune players to the second generation firmware.
Which custom laptop online store would you guys recommend that creates solid products at a reasonable price?
KillerNoteBooks has some superb configurations that might match your budget.
I have a ATI Radeon 9200 AGP graphics card however it only has hardware acceleration when i install Microsofts drivers. When i install the ATI Catylist drivers then dxidag shows accelaration greyed out. I have an AGP 3.0 slot.
Is there a specific driver that i am suppose to install as this card was given to me second hand?
What could be the cause of this?
Fully uninstall the ATI program
You may also use the ATI uninstall program to be very thorough.
Download the most up to date ATI program(drivers) for your card
Re-install and test again.

what operating system did you install?
did you also install a firewall program or any other "freeware" utilities for internet security and stuff?
did you try a different browser such as firefox?
please post back
AMD Athalon 64 4000+
1 Gb RAM
200GB Hard Drive
One in Store:
AMD Athalon 6000+ Dual-core Processor
3 Gb RAM
500GB Hard drive
Windows Vista Home Premium
Lexmark all-in-one printer
Is the one in the store really that much better and is it worth buying at that price. My pc is a gateway, and I like gateways better than anything else (including Dell). Here's another one- however it's an HP:
Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600
3 GB RAM
640GB Hard drive
Windows Vista Home Premium
WIFI LAN, wireless keyboard and mouse
TV tuner (doubt i'd use it)
Can anyone help me out and let me know if either of these two are worth it at the price given and if they are better by a large enough gap than my pc to warrant buying them?
This all depends on what your computer is going to be used for
Gaming ? Go for the Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600
Multimedia ? Go for the AMD Athalon 6000+ Dual-core Processor
Basic Usuage ? Stay with the AMD Athalon 64 4000+
I am only referring to your supplied computer specs
I am going to Singapore soon, but will not stay there very long.
Could anybody in Singapore please tell me where i could get the Asus V9980 NVIDIA GeForce FX 5950 Ultra 256mb 3D card, LG DVD/CD Writer.
I have this motherboard, p4 2.4ghz, 512mb ram, windows 98se. The the 5950 ultra will work on my motherboard, right.
I dont live in singapore and have barely ever been there but I can answer that part about the card\your mobo, yes the card should work in that mobo but will only run at 4X AGP, because it only supports a 4x slot. This shouldnt hold back the cards performance significantly though.
I just need to know if the Trackball Mouse cables Microsoft and compatible? USB cable in a Microsoft button optical mouse ends in an internal plastic plug I have a Microsoft Microsoft Mouse and Trackball cables compatible? button optical trackball with a broken wire than can t be repaired When I looked online to buy a replacement only then did I lean Microsoft stopped making selling their optical trackball s WTF so there are no replacement parts out there to be had They are so rare now even broken trackballs fetch a premium I opened it up to see if I could fix it and the cable ends in a simple five-connector plug so fixing my trackball couldn t be easier If only I could find a replacement cable Microsoft still makes sells their button optical mice but doesn t sell parts If it uses the same cable I figure I can buy a cheap one just for the cord and use it in my trackball Anyone out there ever open up their Microsoft button optical mouse that can confirm for me if the cable just plugs in inside nbsp
Go ahead and try the cable... I hope the wire color codes are the same. I use a wireless Logitech. Maybe it's time for you to switch to a wireless mouse

Do you have access to a machine running Windows 98? There seems to be a trick using Win98 to format the drive as FAT which you can then (using XP) format to NTFS.
I just bought a Microsoft laser mouse 6000 from Newegg (specs here). I'm trying to get the back and forward buttons working in Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty). I did some modifications to configuration files as suggested by Google search results. Unfortunately, that screwed it up so that the scroll wheel controls back and forward, and the real back and forward buttons don't work at all.
The imwheelrc config file (/etc/X11/imwheel/imwheelrc) says that the xf86config file needs to allow for enough mouse buttons. But locating xf86config in the terminal returns nothing.
What can I do??
My dad has had his laptop for about a year now and hasent tryed to play movies on it till recently. The problem is, it will play cds, burned movies, and any dvd that is not store bought. but when you try and play a store bought dvd, it says that he is commitig copyright infringement. Now i remember reading about this somewhere, maybe here, but it was to try and stop people from burning dvd. does anyone know a way around this or a patch or something i can download? Thanks in advance (specs below)

If your year of warranty is not up, talk to Dell tech support. They have had such a high failure rate that you might talk them into a new one. What you describe is not typical... for play... only if you are trying to copy.
However, you might go to the Device Manager within Hardware within System in the control panel. Remove or disable the driver. Then download and install the latest driver.
Also a LOT of drivers, the BIOS, and others of the 56 available downloads have been upgraded since you bought that laptop. If you have not upgraded them all (any with a date more recent than the date the computer was built (see your invoice) then you need to do that.
But if you are out of warranty by just a few days, call Dell anyway.
I'm new here and I guess the title says it all. Every time when I do some work on ms word my pc will restart itself at random times. Just for your info, there's nothing running on the pc while I'm on ms word. By the way I'm using windows xp, intel pentium D dual core processor, 512mb ram and power supply tecom 450w. Kinda weird I know but it happens almost every time I'm on ms word and only word else it never restart like tat. Anyone can help? Thanks
tried uninstall and reinstall?
I am replacing my hard drive this week because of some viruses, I am wondering if I should also replace the RAM. Is it cleared every time there is no power going to it or does it store information all the time? I dont want to install a new Hd and there be a virus hidden on the RAM, if thats how it works.
Every time you shut down your computer, the RAM contents should be cleared. Instead of replacing your hard drive though, why don't you just reformat? That should wipe everything.
So i guess of alot of them ar closing, went there today and hit a gold mind, got a quad core for only 658 and some change. I'm happy, retards
What? There going out of bussiness...
I have uninstalled Microsoft Flight Simulator X Demo, but it is still in the add and remove programs in the control panel. Can someone tell me how to get it out of there?
I have looked quite a bit but can't find anybody with prices that compete with new egg only bummer is I live in California so I have to pay tax on there site. So next best that I have found is tiger direct. Any suggestions on other online stores.
Depending on what type of computer parts you need, you may be able to get some stuff from xoxide.com, they're in PA.
Also, check out directron.com, they're in TX.
Well i'm not really sure if thiis is the right place to ask but has any1 bought or know someone who has a zune? im thinkin about gettin 1 and am not really sure if they got all the bug worked outta them yet, cuz i heard that they don't work as a hdd yet but they are workin on it. got any suggestions?
Yeah, I bought one the same day they came out. I was looking at an iPod. Some friends have had problems with them so I decided to check out the Zune. It can not be used as a HDD at this time as you already know.
Funny thing is, or I found it amusing at least, is that right out of the box it requires a firmware update! Looks like something sooooo new, MS would have already done this before release. The update only takes a few minutes, no biggy really. BUGS???I have not encountered anything strage operationally.
One thing(s) to consider.....the iPod's I believe have adjustable EQ's where the ZUNE only has presets to choose from. The ear buds that come with it really dont sound that great....to me at least. It is ONLY compatable with XP, forget about using 2000. I had to upgrade my laptop to XP to use the Zune, didnt realize this at purchase. Not compatible with Vista either....as of yet anyways. You will need to buy a DVD converter to copy movies to the Zune. Or try and find a free one....they dont exist believe me. (my problem now is finding one that works well, there are many out there)
The Zune software you DL on your PC is very easy to use. The screen itself on the Zune looks very very good. It comes pre-loaded with several music videos and short movie clips. The Zune syncs easy with the PC, no problems at all....so far....remember this is by MS!
So far I am happy with mine....I have already DL'd around 300 songs on it. You can search your music by band, genre, song etc. Storing pictures on it is very similiar. So far I would recommend you buying one!
I have the latest IntelliPoint drivers (5.5), but there is still no way of re-mapping the tilt wheel functions at all. It would be great for games if i could remap to arrow keys for example, because horizontal scrolling isnt recognised in many programs, or ANY games.
Please someone help if they have any idea...
not too sure about remapping tilt wheel, but i would try a google search and check with M$

The only two cards I saw there was Nvidia geforce fx 5200 256Mb, and diamond stealth 2120 radeon 9550. After i cash my paycheck today I'm just going to get one of the two. They're roughly the same price. Which one is better though? The games I play now on my PC does work with my intel extreme graphics 2 card that is built into my Dell, but it jumps around. So I think any video card should be enough to play it properly at normal settings... so which one should I choose?Click to expand...
The Radeon 9550 beats easily the FX5200 Click to expand...
Should I try to make an exchange then.... I just bought the other one...then came home and saw the post...
If you are able to, yeah. I would. That 5200 will be better than your integrated, so don't worry if they won't take it back, but of those two cards, I agree with wolfy. The 9550 is the better option.
How do i fix this problem?? >>> The System file is not sutible for MS-DOS and Microsoft Window?

Catchy title I ll get to it Its at the end of my autobiography below Recently while playing Oblivion my pc has been displaying the blue-screen-of-death Sadly there is nothing written on the blue-screen-of-death Its only an empty blue screen It just turns blue after about minutes of playing and I just restart my pc Microsoft Apparantly "Needs My Help" It didn t always used to be like this though I used to play Oblivion a lot - hours at a time Until one day after a couple of hours of playing I got the BSoD The first thing that came to mind were those hundreds of ffdshow audio icons that appear in the Apparantly Microsoft "Needs My Help" system tray when exiting Oblivion if you ve played oblivion and watched movies on the same pc you know what I m talking about So following the advice of a FAQ on the offical Oblivion site I configured ffdshow not to open with Oblivion Then it truly began Everytime I would play Oblivion for Apparantly Microsoft "Needs My Help" more than half an hour the audio would start messing up and then eventually I would get the BSoD The first thing I did was re-install the audio drivers graphics card drivers and even ffdshow No help I had already purchased a new Watt PSU for soon-to-come upgrades I hope to replace my Watt one So I put that in its in now and no help Upon restarting my computer after one of those BSoDs Windows informed me as it usually does afterwards that it has recovered from a serious error This time I decided to submit the error report Internet explorer opened and took me to a webpage informing me the Microsoft was aware of this error and they needed more people to give them full memory dumps to help them analyze it However they needed the full dumps and I only had minidumps so I couldn t help them out at least until I reproduce the error and get a full dump Anyway you now know the story of my life so can you help me out I don t think my problem is on the top of Microsofts to-do list You may wonder why I haven t posted this in some sort of Oblivion forum and I ll tell you I got the BSoD once while playing FEAR I was playing many games to test out the new Watt PSU and I played Doom Half-Life FEAR Quake and the Chronicles of Riddick all day long I got the BSoD when exiting FEAR I haven t been able to reproduce the BSoD for FEAR since For this reason I don t think this is strictly an Oblivion problem and this place is the most helpfull among the many forums I have seen the Oblivion forum is full of annoyed and annoying people Here is the error I get upon restarting if anyone can decipher it BCCode a BCP BCP C BCP BCP FF OSVer SP Product And here are my specs - Pentium D Processor with Dual Core Technology GHz FSB - GB Dual Channel DDR SDRAM at MHz- DIMMs - GB Serial ATA Hard Drive RPM w DataBurst Cache - MB PCI Express x DVI VGA TV-out ATI Radeon X SE HyperMemory - Sound Blaster Audigy ZS D Card w Dolby and IEEE - FSP PSU AX -PN W RT nbsp
Your problem IS with ffdshow.
ffdshow is much more than just a simple movie viewer... it also replaces several windows media format CODEC's with it's own versions of these.
Most games use several Win XP CODEC's, which in your case, have now been overwritten by beta, open source, untested or unsupported CODEC's. Oblivion, for example, uses the Windows CODEC For MPG2 video streams. Users of both ffdshow, DVD X-Copy Platinum and dozens of other 3rd party packages have been experiencing this problem as these packages replace the supported, tested Win XP CODEC's with their own.
My best advice to you would be to try removing all unneccessary 3rd party applications that have replace XP CODEC's, or try various 3rd party CODEC downloads with your fingers crossed one will yield the same compatibility as the stock Windows XP versions.
I have windows XP .When i opening Microsoft outlook It get hanging.When i changing the data store folder then it opening.After 2 or 3 days the same pbm occured.I have Macfee 8.0 installed on that pc.

I have just bought a new mouse for my computer, its a microsoft optical wheel mouse. It seems to work fine on the desktop but when i get into a game such as CS it seems to freeze in places, particually when im aiming. It will move fine but when i try and aim at someone sometimes the mouse wont move as if its kinda frozen, its hard to explain but if any of you have any ideas why this might be would be very much appreciated!
The "lag" you are referring to is fairly common in lower priced optical mice. what model do you have and what kind of surface are you using it on?
I have been using this mouse for about a year now problem 1.1A IntelliMouse Microsoft Optical I was just surfing on the net today when the mouse froze and would not work light at the bottom did not light up like usual I usually connect it to the computer with a PS converter and Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1A problem decided to unplug it from the converter and just plug it in the computer Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1A problem using its original USB plug and it worked However after every about minutes it stops working every minutes I would need to unplug the mouse from the USB port and reconnect again I have tried my other USB ports all did the same Everytime it disconnects on the right bottom it would pop up a message saying quot Unrecognizable tool connected quot something along those lines however when I do reconnect it it ll recognize it sayin the mouse model I was wondering is there a problem with the mouse or is it the computer Anyway I can quot fix quot this problem I m broke at the moment haha and have no money therefore can t get a new mouse at the moment and this problem is annoying me nbsp
Have you tried downloading and installing the latest MS Intellipoinit drivers? the latest version is ip5.4
Just bought this after a previous post and thought you guys might like a review.
This product is more for fun than actual security. You can use this for boot but you can still type in the password making it nothing more than a convience to log in. The only other thing that it does is remember login and password information. If I where to guess it creates a file of these passwords actually making your system a little less secure. However, saying you have a fingerprint scanner is cool in an odd sort of way.
I'm currently getting ready to buy a bunch of parts online to build a new gaming rig. Does anyone know of any good places to order from that ship to Canada with prices in Canadian Dollars?
Thanks in advance.
have installed wireless desktop set, ps2 connection only for keyboard and usb/ps2 connection for mouse. Mouse works fine with either connection, the keyboard is a nightmare.
Works fine on one PC reboots fine and no issues. The other PC doesn't get past POST. Blank screen and no beeps after POST or messages. Both PCs run on XP Professional.
Have even done a total clean install to get rid of any software or device conflicts, only has monitor, keyboard and mouse attached. Works fine with old cabled keyboard and mouse.
PS. works if I boot with old keyboard/mouse and then change over to wireless whilst running but when reboots same old problem
Please please help
Could be that the PC is too old to accomodate a wireless keyboard.
Check that the powersupply for that keyboard-sender is ON before you boot.
You sure it's wireless PS/2 and that the keyboard is not also USB?
If so, check USB settings for keyboard in BIOS.
I guess this is the wrong board for this question but din know where to put it
Do you guys know any really good online computer stores like newegg or ibuypower which SHIP TO CANADA
cause all these stores just ship items within the states.. Canadian online stores are very expensive
Nope but I think that newegg is going to start shipping to canada soon.

The Windows-built-in standard USB mouse-drivers should let you use scrolling without any problems. No need to install those bloated Intellipoint drivers.
Does anyone else here use a wireless keyboard and mouse? My mouse died a couple days ago, so I was going to purchase a new wireless one. Well Bestbuy was sold out of every single wireless mouse except for the $90 ones. I looked over and saw this really nice looking Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse for only $60. I said, heck with it. I bought it, and I love it. Just thought I'd share my experience with you all. I bought the Microsoft "Basic Wireless Optical Desktop"
So does anyone else use a wireless keyboard/mouse?
Please, someone tell me how I can print horizontally, as opposed to vertically?, I have tried, but haven't fathomed it out, it would be useful for banners / car stickers. Yes, I know there are sites for car stickers, but I'd like to be able to do it on "Word"
Easy Peasy - Simply change the paper type from portrait to landscape in either:- file->print->setup or file->page layout
one of those two has the option, and then your paper should change in word (if you use layout view, if you use normal view you probably wouldn't notice)
looking for store that sells slk900 in San francisco, san jose, santa clara, or palo alto anyone pls help?
This probably would have been better suited for the Cooling forum.. however...
Have you tried online ordering? Just about any online store will ship to anywhere within the U.S. I know http://www.newegg.com will, and if you look up slk900 on pricewatch you'll find plenty.
i've heard that new egg is good but its says that they dont deliver internationaly i live in the uk and like the price of the 9800pro could i get fast delivery and same price for the uk?
Try this place, its about the cheapest I've found currently ...

Am looking at building my own system, I'd keep my current printer, network card, monitor, keyboard and mouse as well as DVDROM and CDRW. NCIX has got some good prices, but they're in BC and I'm in Ontario. The computer stores around here aren't bad, but don't sell the latest stuff, the best CPU they have is around 2.5Ghz. Newegg has got wonderful prices compared to here, but they don't ship to Canada. Otherwise they'd be getting a big order. Are there other stores like Newegg but that ship to Canada? Another thing is customs, hopefully I don't get too much of a charge, but wouldn't NAFTA's free trade be in effect?
I like Mwave.com. Prices arent as good as Newegg but they beat them sometimes.

Any idea (s) ?
I use a spread sheet which contains Check Boxes, that I manually tick to show a task has been fully completed. I have a basic formula that calculates returned items, and once it reaches 0 (all returned) I tick the box. I wish to have the Check Box auto-tick itself once the returned items count reaches 0. I'm damned certain this is possible, but beyond my abilities. I know you can have formulas to display text once a Check Box is ticked, I am kinda trying to do it the other way around.
Thanks for any help
I'm damned certain this is possible, but beyond my abilities.Click to expand...
You are correct, it is possible.
What you need to do is learn the Visual Basic for Applications coding in Excel. Then you can add code that runs every time the sheet calculates (basically when something changes on the page). The code can check the status of a cell and change the status of another cell (or object in your case) based on criteria you have coded.
I'm not a programmer but playing with Excel Macros (VBA coding) and manipulating excel cells is a long time hobby of mine.
The easiest way to learn is to record Macro's and then study the code. It is easier learning the code if know first hand what it does. After you are familiar with how the code works, you will be surprised at how easy it is to code your own macros. Once you have the macro working for you, it is easy to move the code and have it run every time the sheet loads, calculates, closes, or several other possibilities.

How can I get my MS Works database files to be able to be transferred to another program such as Open Office or Office? I have a lot of collected information in many files that I can't share with anyone else who doesn't have Works. The Office Database is far too complicated for me and much more powerful than I need for my own use.
Did you TRY exporting?
A typical choice for database conversions is to export -> CSV format and then work with that
to create the imports. Hint: Export only one TABLE at a time.

Update: Re-installing steam for a second time did work. Also strange enough, installing mozilla and going to the same comic page again has magically fixed what the glitched bug is.... for mozilla only. Chrome is still having the same problems as it did before.

How complex is your formatting? You could save it as a .rtf (rich text format) and that will be compatible with practically anything.
Also this is from Wikipedia:
A general C++ library, libwps, can extract text from many different versions of Microsoft Works. OpenOffice.org variants such as Go-oo, LibreOffice, NeoOffice and OxygenOffice have included libwps. libwps also provides a command line converter.Click to expand...
So if rtf isn't going to do it for you, installing one of those OpenOffice variants may work.

So I had an issue where I couldn't access Microsoft Office 2010. I had recently installed a trial version of 2013 to open some documents that I had put onto my USB; I think this may have had a problem with the other version. Microsoft 2010 wouldn't open, though I can't remember what the error said. This Microsoft 2010 was already installed on my laptop and I'm sure it wasn't a trial version. I was told to uninstall Microsoft 2010 so I went to control panel>uninstall program>Microsoft 2010 English (I was told to not uninstall the Microsoft 2010 click to run). After I uninstalled Microsoft 2010 English, I couldn't find Microsoft 2010 click to run but I could still see it as an option of a program to uninstall. How do I get Microsoft Office 2010 back?
Download the copy again from Microsoft.
I am working on a Word document that has been saved in Word 2003 mode. The document is 94 pages long. Now, when I open it, the formatting is all funky, it does not let me correct it and it says I have opened the document in "Compatibility Mode".
What the heck it this?
How do I fix it?
The formatting issues are contained in the first 3 images I attached to this post (a black line on the left, forced space at the top most of the pages, and when I try to delete text, it just highlights it in red and draws a line through it.
The 4th image is the message I get about compatibility mode.
When I following the instructions and convert the document, the compatibility mode message goes away, but I still have the other 3 problems.
Try opening Word in Safe mode. Hold down the Ctrl key and then open Word, say yes to the pop-up.
If that does not work try this. I know it says - in an earlier version but try it anyway.
Word 2003 and later versions of Word have a feature that permits you to assign permissions to specific parts of a document to specific users. When you use this feature, you can make the overall content read-only while you grant editing permissions to specific users for specific parts of the document. When you open such a file in an earlier version of Word, the document opens as protected for comments, permitting users to make comments to the file but not permitting edits to the content. If you receive a document that is protected for comments, you can remove the protection.
To do this, perform one of the following actions:
* In Word 2007, click the Review tab, click Protect Document in the Protect group, click Restrict Formatting and Editing, and then click Stop Protection.
* In Word 2003, click Unprotect on the Tools menu.
If that does not work open it from a cmd.
In the Run dialog box, type this: winword.exe /a (note the space after exe and before the /a switch)

hank you for all your help.
Take a closer look at the Envelopes setup under Office or Word Tools -> Envelopes and Settings. You are missing a change you have to make which is easily done... but it deletes itself when finished.
I have been asked to oversee a Microsoft Audit for the company I work for.
Is there a piece of software I can run on my PC that will access the server and list all users, details of their system (serial etc)?
I would think the company requesting such would/should provide whatever software you'd need.

Does your PC do the same thing with all the programs you open? Or just with Office?
As a first thought, you say it opens ok in 'Safe mode', so that seems to point to your graphic drivers being missing or the wrong version for your card.
The topic pretty much says what I'm wondering about...Is it still possible to somehow buy a Win7 license from Microsoft? -if I would first install Win7 without a product code then I'll have to enter a valid product code to be able to activate windows...but...when I try to do that I only get to the link below and all that I can find is Win8.
Give them a call and see if they will sell a license. You should be able to find their number when you click activate now from the following location.
Control Panel >> System and Security >> System
I was wondering the same thing recently, but have not needed to ask. If not you could always get an OEM licenses, they are still available.
Recently my Microsoft Outlook 'Choose Profile' dialogue box opens without me clicking the icon to open the program. Could someone offer advice as to why this is happenning and what I could do to stop it happenning! It does this consistently when I don't have Microsoft Outlook open.
Just to give a bit more info, although I am not sure how relevant it is: when it opens without me clicking, I try to 'cancel', it remains on screen. My only option at this point is to click 'OK'. However, this does not take me into my emails - only my reminders pop up (however, if I actively click to open Outlook, and then get to the 'choose profile' box, I am able to click cancel).
using an admin login, look in the All Users profile
(\documents & settings\all users\*)under Programs\Start Menu\Startups
every thing there is started for every user that logs onto the system
i recently upgrded my outlook 2002 to outlook 2007, but any time that I try to open the out look I get this message; The add-in "ESET Oulook plugin" (c:\progra~1\ESET\ESETNO~\EPLGOU~1.DLL) cannot be loaded and has been disabled by outlook. Please contact the add-in manufactur for an update. if no update is available, please unistall the Add-in.
I don't understand what this mean? can anyone help?
thank you for all or any help.
Your anti-virus must have some type of email addon for scanning in Outlook. Maybe it's not compatible with 2007 or it needs an update or patch. Check with ESET.
