XP partially displaying text in Arabic?

Q: XP partially displaying text in Arabic?

Hey everyone,

Working on an Inspiron 6000 laptop running WinXP MCE. It had over a hundred infections that have been taken care of. The remaining problem is that in some system screens, the text appears to be in arabic. I've checked the regional settings in control panel but find nothing wrong. Pics of what it looks like attached. Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys. So, a client says she was on her laptop (Asus M50V) and she smelled burning plastic, then she noticed a small flame in the back of the laptop. The flame was put out. She was able to run the computer again, but it would only run on the battery. It will not boot up when plugged in. I want to take it apart to see if there is something that can be replaced.

Do you think it would be worth taking apart, and do you know if the part that could be damaged would be replaceable? I'm guessing there was a power surge, because there was a storm that night, and she was not on a surge protector. It looks like the laptop is still functional, it just won't boot from power anymore. Any thoughts?

Thank you!

A:(Partially) fried laptop

Yes you should be able to replace the part/parts that caught fire.

Replacement parts can usually be found on the manufacturers website if the laptop is still being supported. I took a very quick look for replacements parts on the ASUS site and found nothing other than a replacement keyboard.

You'll probably be able to find used parts on ebay. You'll need to compare part numbers to be sure you're getting the right part.

When I am typing on my laptop, there is a delay when typing letters. Sometimes I have to go back and retype because the keyboard hesitates or displays letters in a delay mode. For example: if type "help" I may have typed the 4 characters but only see "he"

Why would the printer change from normal operation change to printing emails in cryptic
I'm asking this to try help out my neighbor . But I was wondering if the email was the cause ?
regards drecked

A:Printer started printing cryptic text

Open NOTEPAD, type a few lines and the <ctl>P to print it.

If it is reproduced correctly, then it's the goofy email,

otherwise, disconnect power, wait a minute or two,
then go through the printer settings and test again.

Still having a problem, download and install new firmware from the vendor.

nForce is the chipset on AMD mobos. Is this correct? It could just be using the APU instead of the GPU.

I've just recently bought brand new parts to build a desktop and everything was running smoothly until I installed the video card. The monitor wouldn't display anything anymore. After removing the video card, everything worked perfectly again. However, when the video card was plugged in, the fans were running but the monitor was still not displaying anything. Could this be an issue with the mobo, videocard, psu, or monitor?

When you removed the CMOS battery, it reset the BIOS to default settings. I don't know what motherboard you have and the BIOS' of different boards can vary but check the Power Management page of the BIOS and see if the suspend type is set to S3 (STR).

Cannon MP530 print,scan,fax. The printer always worked great. I've been out of INK for 4 months. I finally bought the pgbk 5 black ink cartridge so I could print resumes. This works fine as usual. I decided I'd add a page of pictures displaying my work in grayscale. The printer only prints a blank page. I cleaned the cartridge right before trying to print images so I don't know if that did something? I just downloaded the latest drivers from cannons change. I've tried several different image files...still prints text fine...and it will print goodgle homepage image and all. Please help this doesn't make sense...

P.S. Is it because my bk 8 black cartridge used with yellow magenta and cyan is empty?

So this initially was a problem with my games not playing in a certain resolution without everything being cropped off on the side, and it turns out to be a problem with my resolutions/monitor in general.

I have a Samsung 2333 24" 16:9 with a 1920x1080 native resolution, and whenever i put it on 1280x720 which is the 720p setting for my monitor, everything is being cropped around the edges. The task bar is halfway gone and my desktop icons are off the screen at the top. Any idea what could be causing this?

Okay, so my friend has a prepaid cellphone from Virgin Mobile.

Sometimes we'll be having a conversation, and then something happens with the phone service or whatever, and I get the same text message maybe 20 times over the course of 5 hours or so, and during that time she can't receive any texts from me.

Then after a while, it goes back to normal, and her phone gets a flood of texts that I sent over the past few hours.
What the heck is going on?
Why does this happen?
Can we do anything to fix it?

I'm not so sure how cellphone SMS messages work exactly, so I would love some more information.

I really hope someone can help me with this. My monitor is displaying a no signal message at startup, not even showing the windows boot screen. However, I plugged the cable into the on board graphics card and it works fine, it's only when I try it on my other card that there's a problem. I've cleaned and reseated the card, but no joy.

This is a completely out of the blue problem. It was working fine last night, tried to turn it on this morning, and this happened. Any advice? Or do I just have to get a new graphics card?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Yesterday, my monitor stopped displaying anything. This started happening a few days ago but after a few reboots it would display again. However, it has permanently not displayed anything since yesterday.

I have two spare monitors which I have tried to use. However, the plugs do not match; therefore, I can't test it out on a different monitor.

The possible parts which I think could be causing the problem are the video card, PSU, motherboard, or the monitor. When I boot the computer, the video card fan is spinning so I am not sure if that is the problem.

I would like some suggestions and opinions on this. Thanks

Hi guys,
I bought a samsung 2233sw monitor a month ago, and running with evga 8600gt using D-Sub(VGA) connector.
Now-a-days i am noticing a intermittent flickering or text shaking artifact is displayed on my screen only when i run it in its highest(native) resolution that is 1920x1080 full hdmi. In lower resolution there is no such problem. but in lower resolution the display of the monitor is very poor and showing a text/screen bluring or tearing effect like other tfts.

Can u guys suggest some solution to the problem.

Can dvi-d connection wipe out this sort of problem.

A:Flickering/text shaking on new samsung 2233sw monitor

I suppose I'd spring for a DVI cable as a matter of course. It will look better, (assuming everything is working correctly) with the Digital connection

But, I'd really try your monitor on another computer ASAP. >>>(read this as first)<< In case it needs to be RMAed.

It seem's logical to eliminate that first.

The last time I saw anything such as you describe on a computer monitor was with an old Emachines 17" CRT. I think that was due to the degausser. Or maybe RFII.

First, any graphics adapter, even onboard, should be able to display up to 1920 x 1200 even connected via VGA.

So, in no particular order,

bad cable.

Electrical interference

Video driver corrupted or wrong version

Bad video card

Bad monitor.

I bought a Samsung recently, but haven't used it. It has a "driver disc" (?), so much for universal PnP. It was giving me trouble setting the color, brightness and contrast. Don't know if that was the video card driver. But the control sliders were really acting funky.

Hey I recently ordered some new parts to build a better computer and have ran into some trouble.

The main bit of it being that my monitor isn't displaying anything when I start up the system.

Currently I have an old dell monitor plugged into the video card which is a NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT( ) , using an adapter to hook up my monitor.

I would have it plugged into the mother board ( ) except that my monitor plug is VGA.

Basically what I was wondering is if there is an adapter out there so that I could plug the monitor into the motherboard, or if there is some way I could get it to display through the video card without changing any software settings?

A:Monitor not displaying anything

I'm assuming that you're using a DVI to VGA adapter? That's the one that you would use if there's no VGA input for your gfx card. Don't plug your monitor into the motherboard (assuming

You aren't displaying anything? Even at the post screen? Or once you boot into windows? If it's the former, then your graphics card isn't working/connected correctly. If it's the latter then drivers are your problem.

I assume you at least get a POST? Check to make sure that your graphics card is inserted properly, that the adapters/cables are connected properly (maybe change ports if you have more than one).


Hmm, I looked at your motherboard, and it's SLI capable, meaning that there are two slots for the graphics card to go. Try moving your card over to the other PCI-E slot. Also, sometimes there's a "card" on the motherboard itself that you have to flip over or switch to enable SLI if you're going to try to do that...

Hi, I just bought a new monitor (the Samsung 2693HM) and I cannot get my notebook (linked to it through VGA) to display 1920x1200 (the monitor's native resolution) on there. Right now it's running at 1280x800 (my notebook's monitor's native resolution) on the Samsung with black bars on top and bottom.

My notebook (Sony Vaio N110G) runs on Intel GMA 950, which according to Intel, can support resolutions up to 2048x1536 at 75hz, so it shouldn't have any problems with this monitor, but I can only get it to run on resolutions equal to or lower than the native resolution of my laptop monitor (ie. 1280x800 or lower). Does anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if this should be in here or the display section.

A:Intel GMA 950 have trouble displaying 1920x1200

The Intel GMA 950 graphics will display at 1920 X 1200. I know this because I'm sitting here staring at one. Although it's in a desktop with provision for only one monitor, therefore that could be irrelevant here.

Have you gone into display properties yet and identified the monitor? Right click on the desktop, then on the "display properties" click on the "settings". Right click on the monitor 2 icon, and see if it will allow you to set the resolution from there

Recently bought this monitor and when I try to set it to its 1440x900 native resolution the text is very difficult to read in that it is grainy. I have to set it to a lower resolution but in doing so the text isn't quite crisp. Do I need a new graphics card? My current one is a Radeon X300 with 128 MB. Thanks in advance.
BTW, I have updated the drivers for my current card but it didn't seem to help.

A:953BW Samsung text is blurry

I would upgrade my graphics card anyways in order to run that native resolution, you'd get better performance all around. 1440 x 900 is pretty demanding for an older card with only 128 megs of vRAM. The picture might look "grainy" because the card doesn't support that pixel aspect ratio or something. A more high-end desktop video card is likely to resolve your issue.

A:Contents of Some Software Programs (Text/Graphics) Don't Fit in Window

Could it be that your display resolutions are wrong?

i doubt it has anything to do with your epson software, since it happens with others..

The normal resolution you should keep your monitors at is to the highest supported by both monitor and graphics card. DPI however, can be altered, found under the advanced properties (display properties>Settings>Advanced..) of your graphics card. Try altering that to the Normal setting and see if it makes a difference..

have you also tried getting the latest software updates available for your graphics card and others you have problem with?

HI All Quick question for any web designers out there design vs dreamweaver text editor Web Just wondering what you all use for coding Me and my friend are just starting a little web design business but we argue over coding methods I am used to using alleycode on Windows and now Ive started to use linux I use screem on there - when I first began designing websites I got pointed away from word hehehe and was told to use something more like a text editor because it means you can make really clean code and have everything validated and that most WYSIWYG programs tend to add alot of extra code and go about Web design dreamweaver vs text editor things the wrong way My friend uses dreamweaver and whilst it doesnt code as bad as i had been told it does tend to make heavy work of simple designs Imjust wondering what everyone else uses wheather you can make really good pages with a text-editor and whether you can make W C complient clean pages with dreamweaver nbsp

A:Web design dreamweaver vs text editor

First, Techspot is not focused on coding techniques and you will get a bigger
population (and thus more replies) on some other boards.

However, your question is great as it says you're trying to plan ahead and start
off right. I'll give you my take, but understand, I am a purist and disdain GUI tools.
I what to know what is written so that I can change it if I desire to.
IF you use a TEXT editor, every line is yours and there's no surprises.
The really bad part of a GUI tool, imo, is that if you need to make a change,
you tweek the PRESENTATION, not the code. Sure it's what you want, but compare
the new file to the old -- massive changes result and finding exactly
that line that implements what you wanted is usually impossible.

Another issue with web page generation (as apposed to manual editing) is the
bloat and cruff that they generate. If you've ever see a Word.rtf file (in a text editor)
you'll understand immediately -- tons of stuff that is just not obvious
and sometimes it's not even references (ie: used).

Then too, the HTML,SCRIPTS, and CSS are just merged into one file --
not very effecient and makes the maintenance just that more difficult.
Lots of web designers don't realize that placing each resoruce in its own file
and using the appropriate < script scr="..." > </ script> or
< link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" title="xxx" href="pagestyle.css" />
is a performance as well as a maintenance issue; the browser can be loading
multiple resources at the same time.

Lastly, I'm also a minimalist; less is more. Flash creates great presentations,
but also greatly slowdown the user waiting for all that stuff to load -- ONLY
to be bypassed if the user clicks SKIP THIS INTRO.

The web is about INFORMATION CONTENT; the cute presentations are just eye candy. No customer ever purchases your eye candy.

btw: You should get some kind of Change Management Software to manage
versioning your pages. google for CVS

I'm looking for some advice /assistance.

I have a Fujitsu lifebook E6180 which will not start up ~ or rather, when I press the power on button there's a little bit of whirring but it doesn't start up properly and the screen remains blank.

I have a feeling (although I don't know why!) that its "locked" in some way ~ the manual advises that a password can be set to prevent unauthorised use, using the 1-4 buttons on the front of the machine, but I have not set a password and it has always started up without one?

Very puzzled, and any help would be appreciated,

A couple of weeks ago my motherboard died because it got a short from a broken front usb port. I replaced the usb and motherboard everything was perfect. Until I returned home this morning and tried to boot up the computer and I can hear my computer startup vista. But no video so I unplug the video card and reconnect still no video. I hooked my monitor up to my laptop and it came on any ideas of what could be wrong with the card. It's a Nvida Gforce 6200 turbo cache.

I've been at this thing for days on end. And cannot get it to work. I am using both Composite and Tuner modes. Tuner does not detect any channels.

The main problem is that, when I go to play NTSC PS2, GC games etc they show up black and white. I've been switching to NTSC mode constantly, but I get the same thing. And when I try it with Tuner mode, it still doesn't work, even though I have a SCART lead in. The closest I can get to colour is by playing PAL games (duh) or by displaying NTSC/JAP games in PAL_60 mode, however PAL_60 flickers alot and has a huge black bar on the left hand side of the display. Not good.

So I ask of you, would anyone be kind enough to help a n00b like me out? ;_;

Ok, Today I installed a new CPU fan and case fan to replace failing ones. After the installation I turned on the computer it displayed bios and then all the fans quit and the screen went black and it started making an alarm type sound. I checked everything and it was all installed properly. I turned it on and it made the sound again but bios would not show up. I thought maybe I had to much thermal grease on so I removed some with a plastic bag (read to use something like that to keep from leaving lent). Now the fans work but the monitor still does not display. I hooked it up to a different monitor it displayed bios then made the noise again and that monitor will not show anything now. If I unhook the monitors they say check the connection so I pretty sure they are not blown. Any Idea what is wrong?

A:Monitors quit displaying

hi welcome to techspot.

I have exact experience on my computer, and this problem usually under "overheating". If you have install a new chassis fans, please check the cable firstly and then check your CPU thermal gels.

In my computers, it will get overheating (though at 50*C) if the gels are paste in the CPU, so i try a workaround, which is pasting it in the heatsink. though in the end the gels touch the CPU, my computers still be able to work a week perfectly rather than if i put gel in the CPU itself.

by the way, in my bios, it says System shutted down due to thermal event (overheating) PRESS F4 to continue. if i did not press F4 all the way everytime i turned on my PC the alarm sound will rang.

Got a canon i860 printer. The print head stopped printing regular black. I have soaked it overnight with ammonia/water mix as well as alcohol.

Still no text. It wil print other colors. The automatic alignment has also stopped working. Should I replace the print head?
I think I have done all I can with this head.

A:Canon i860 won't print black text

Doesn't the Canon printer utility have a "clean print head" option? I seem to remember seeing that for my i550.

My nozzles tend to clog bec. I'll go a month or so between printing photos. I usually just print a full color draft on plain paper, which unclogs.

Have you tried printing a photo, rather than a text page?

If that doesn't work, and after all the things you've tried, it may be time to send this one on to the print cartridge graveyard.

radeon 9800 pro

It worked fine at first but would crash to the blue screen every 10 minutes or so saying something about the IRQs. A few days later it stopped booting all together. When I turn it on now the monitor says no signal but the fans work and all that with no beeps. So at first I thought bad graphics card but the onbaord video didnt display either. I tried the ati card on another computer and it worked fine and I tried a nvidia card and nothing. So next I tried resetting the bios with the jumpers and taking out the battery. This didn't work either. So I'm thinking now its a bad motherboard but I was just wondering if anyone else had any suggestions before I send it back.

A:Monitor not displaying, bad motherboard?

try reseating the ram and other devices

go to basics [mobo, cpu, hdd, psu, sound, video], all other devices and PCI cards taken out. try booting now. if yes ok, start adding components one by one untill you find the culprit.

try and put your hdd into another pc in slave mode, and make your way to the %windows%/minidumps folder on that hdd, then zip 5-6 recent ones and post here.

look for physical damage on the boards, including leaky/poped capacitors, scorch marks, shorting etc... check that your psu has enough juice and if it is a noname brand/alcheapo, take the figure and take out 30% of the wattage. use a psu calculator to do this - google.

swap parts with another pc thats compatible -> mobo-mobo, psu-psu, etc etc.. and also the monitor as well, making sure the cable is on properly.

If it was a text I could write a brief text about it and also translate it into our native language immediately. But the problem is that since the speed of the English-language narrator man is very quick I can't completely understand what he says.

I have created an application with D3DX9. My application displays text on the faces on 400 cubes using Textures. The heights of the cubes are changed every 100 milliseconds (in OnTimer call). I display text using the following sequence of calls (pseudocode is below):

for (I=0 to 399)
if(texture != NULL)
texture = NULL

MyFont->DrawTextA(texture, word)
CreateMeshObject(cube) //Cube height changes for every OnTimer call.

This code hangs after a few calls to OnTimer. My VRAM seems to be hogging up. Calling the Release for texture does not seem to be really releasing the memory in VRAM. Am I doing anything wrong here? Is there a better way to display text on the cube's face? Does D3DX11 have a better way of doing this? Any suggestion is welcome.

Do you know of a software program that will pronounce words for you either free or purchase? I know there are web sites I can go to but I'm not always online in fact, I'm off more than on but my computer is on and I just wanted a program that would do this for me. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your time!

At work, I know the company blocks some things and doesn't have the most up to date software but things were working OK for quite some time. This morning, without any notification that anything had been changed, Yahoo Mail for myself and 2 others lost the rich text capability and the toolbar.

A search hasn't turned up any help.

I did find something that says Yahoo Mail has limited capabilities under IE7, but it was working fine until this morning.

The "rich text / basic" option under the Subject bar in the email isn't there now, either.

Thanks for any tips on how to restore email editing ability!

You may need to update to IE 9 or 10. Looks like Yahoo is not supporting much for IE 7

Apparently when logging into Yahoo once, I didn't succeed in clicking down to the password space before typing my password. Now when I go to type in my username it not only shows the correct username but also the incorrect one with my password included.

I've tried to find how to delete that one entry but can't. Also could only find how to stop showing my username at all by removing all site usernames & passwords from the memory. As my wife also uses this computer, I don't want to do that either for myself or for her.

Is there any way to delete just the one incorrect username that also contains my password?


A:How to stop Yahoo email from displaying my username on login?

I've sometimes entered at my Email login page my email address then not Tabbed to the next line and typed my password. To delete the incorrect version I start to type and the type assist brings up the selection (I have now have three two correct and one mistake). Using the down arrow I highlight the mistake then press 'Delete'
Hope this helps

I have a problem with adobe flash player not displaying anything. My OS is Vista 64-bit and i'm using IE8. I click on something and it tells me that it's done loading but nothing comes up. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it doesn't work, any suggestions? I might also add that i've tried a different browser and that hasn't worked either.

Also it's only with one website that won't display anything in adobe, all the others I have tried all work with the flash player. This is so damn frustrating.

Windows live mail 2011 will show that I have new emails and when I go to click on them it would normally show the message in the preview window. Instead, it shows nothing, just blank. I noticed by cursor has an hourglass next to it too. I actually tried double clicking the message to open it in a new window and it still displays a blank email. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi; I am an author and print index cards with data on how people can get my book that I distribute on the street in my village. I can set a margin of 0" on all four corners of word 2007 on the index card image of the word processor. The problem is with print preview, the right border is missing the ending text on landscape view. It shows headers and footers when I have a margin of 1/2 inch on all corners. Is there something I have to set on word options with the advanced tab (maybe layout options?) so the data can print near the edges of the index cards? Whatever shows on print preview shows on the printed index card. I have an HP 4360 printer. I have vista 32 bit.

A:Print preview does not show whole index card text

Try 'View' mode, then tick 'ruler' option, then drag the 'first line indent' and the 'hanging indent' to the page edges. This does make the margins 0" but I can't prove if it will print with a similar effect. Hope this helps.

Hi everyone,

We are currently running Outlook 2007 on all of our machines. Does anyone know if Outlook has the ability to add text to a message that is autoforwarded? We have email that comes into one mailbox, hits a rule and gets forwarded off to another mailbox. I want to know if there is a way to automatically add text into the body of the email when the message is forwarded. I have run through the rules and it does not look like Outlook 2007 has that functionality. If anyone knows if and how this can be done, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance..

I want to add text to my videos as a watermark before I upload them to Youtube.
I just want my username to appear for a few seconds.
I can use Sony Vegas 8 to add subtitles. This works but the video is re-encoded. I cannot see a way to pass through the source video.
Can anyone advise how I can add my text while keeping the source video as is - ie not re-encoded. Is there a way to do this in Sony Vegas or can anyone recommend any other software.

If I wanted to make some text link to a page in something like a signature or on a forum post, etc... How do I do this?

Most of the time forums, especially with signatures, don't allow HTML either.

A:Make text into a link

You would use a hyperlink:

The code for that is:
<a href="">Text you want to see</a>

But for most forums and signatures, there is what is known as BBcode that will take care of that for you, so as not to confuse the HTML within the PHP of the forums.

To my own stupidity I was writing a paper inside an active web page. I had saved the text to the clipboard, but inadvertently copied over it. Then in what amounts to even greater stupidity I hit the back button in IE and lost all the text in the previous window. My question is, if I have not closed IE since this happened, is there anyway to recover the text? Does it reside somewhere in memory, temp file, cookie etc? I have tried going back through IE history etc but when the same window appears the text is missing. I know it's a long shot but I have to try....

A:Lost Text In Web Page. Can I recover?

As far as I`m aware, you`ve lost it for good.

I know it`s a bit late now, but the Windows clipboard is very limited. I recommend you use the DzSoft Paste & Save, it can hold mulitple clipboard entries and won`t lose them.

I do a heck of a lot of copy and pasting and find the above programme very handy.

Hi guys, my wife is having probs with her hotmail. Sometimes she can read an email that is sent to her in hebrew as hebrew, and other times she can't, it just appears as gibberish. Also, an email that she could read has now become gibberish again!
Anyone any ideas?
Does hotmail resolve hebrew by default, or does it have to be configured...and if so, how?
Thanks guys

I have a THINKPAD x60S running Windows XP. All of a sudden I am unable to right click on text and get the menu for copying/pasting in OWA. I also can't drag text around. However, I can do it in the preview panel! When I right click I get the extended menu, not the copy/paste menu. I can use Ctrl Keys to cut and copy but again can't do it with the right click.

I have been seaching sites for possible solutions. The only thing I found was that it might be a virus. So i did a full scan with Norton and found nothing.

Does anyone have any ideas? It's a total pain...

Can anyone explain what might be going on here? When the wheel on scroll mouse is used to scroll up and down a Word 2003 document occasionally it copies lines of text. These copied lines are not permanent, is you stop scrolling the duplicates disappear and is you save a document the duplicates are not saved. If the scroll bars are used instead of the scroll wheel there is no problem at all.
So far a new mouse has been tried and Word has been reloaded, neither has resolved the problem. No software has been loaded for the 2 mice used, just windows drivers. This problem seems to be intermittent as it doesn't happen on every document, sometimes the same document exhibits the problem, sometimes not, its weird.
Anyone any ideas?

Hello all-
I have just gotten ms office 2003 on my computer - i am familiar with ms word, but i think this newer version did something annoying: i wanted to email a set of info from home to work email. i have these in text files. i uploaded these as attachments to an email. when i opened the email, ALL the text from the text files was IN the email, with NO text file attachments.

i also had ONE ms office document ".doc" attached, and it acted like it should: just attached to the email.

is this text file thing something that ms word 2003 does on purpose? i have never had this happen before with my web-based email acct.

how can i turn off this function?

With almost every Linux distributions I've tried (Fedora 3 & 4, Suse
9.3 and a Portuguese version of Linux "Caixa Magica") if I don't have the
option "pci=nosort text" at boot I get a "Kernel Panic: not syncing,
attempted to kill init" and a system freeze. With Suse 9.3, which I have
installed on my system, this option is already included in the boot
sequence, so there is no need to put it by hand. However, if I choose the
safe mode, I get a system freeze if I don't write it at boot.
Does anyone knows why this happens? Is it a kernel bug, or hardware

Two small problems I noticed while using Firefox:

1. On boards that use prepared UBB-Tags (or something like that) whenever I click one of them it's inserted at the very end of the reply and not behind the cursor, like it should.

2. When the end of a line is reached, pressing space key doesn't produce any actual spacing...the cursor is still next to the last typed letter, which means you can't really see whether you spaced or I said, it's minor, but seems to be a Firefox problem (and probably Mozilla, too, for that matter).

Is there a way to fix those, yet?

A:minor text editing problems in Firefox

I found that if you click twice at the cursor-position, it will insert at that position.
As to spaces, the TS board ignores more than 1 space anyway, so pressing an extra space for good measure does not interfere. While you are typing, spaces do 'show' unless at the very end of the message window. Once submitted, as said, anything over 1 space will be suppressed.
That's not a Firefox problem (or any browser for that matter).

(gearing up a new laptop)

I found how to adjust text size i.e. the pages on this forum, but the text
in the bars at the top and bottom are still so tiny I can hardly read them.

I'm sure there's a simple fix, I just can't seem to find it.
I played with display settings and got the height to width ratio
looking pretty good, but I can't find anything to make the various
status bars any larger.

Appreciate any tips!

A:Have adjusted screen text size but headings still tiny

Use the zoom feature in Opera? It won't be too pretty, but at least it is readable.

If a web page is made using static pixel counts as measurements, then everything will look tiny on a hi-res screen and AFAIK only Opera is able to zoom everything, including graphics and multimedia content.

Does anyone know of a Notepad-like program in which I can set the background to black and the text to white? Preferably, the program should be low in resource usage and should have the basic Notepad functions (eg, search, word wrap, etc.) I am currently using GetDiz but it doesn't render some of the characters well (probably lack of character support or something like that.)
