No colour when using IE8

Question: No colour when using IE8

I like using "windguru" for forecasting the weather. Based in the Czech Republic, they're usually spot on which is more than I can say for the local effort.

Until recently I used Netscape 7.2 and subsequent to that Opera vers 11. These both colour coded the wind speeds and gusts and the expected temperatures; you know ranging from blue for cold to red for hot. For various reasons I have had to make use of IE-8. I can't get anything in colour. Temperatures and wind speeds are just black numerals on a white background. I've searched through IE's options but can't find any tweak to resolve this. The URL is www.windguru.cz and I'm running XP home. Can anyone help?

Thanks

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.

Hi there gurus.
My pc doesn?t show certain colour objects in Publisher 2007 and some on-line sites. Overall, the screen colour is very good. I know the fault is localised, because when I switch to Print Preview in Publisher it looks fine and I can see all the object colours. (I only lose the colour with objects, not text)
Also, when I send a copy of a Publisher page to my partner who is on the same PC, it looks fine on her screen.
I?ve tried going to Install/uninstall programs and run the Repair, but to no avail. The guys in my computer shop are clueless without seeing it. Anyone who can help solve this for me is a gem.
Cheers!

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great

Thanks

Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

Hi, I'm using the Aerolite theme with Aeroglass, and want a consistent colour for the borders. So I set accent colour from background 'off' and choose the colour. Fine so far.

Now that's ok if I log off and on.

But if I sleep or hibernate (not personally ) and then resume, the colour and setting are lost.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello.

I seriously need help with my PC. I've reinstalled Windows XP and Service Pack 2, and I can't chnge the Screen resolution or the colour quality. It sucks. The resolution stays at 800x600, the lowest possible, and the colour quality stays at 8 bit. I think I have a ATI 128 MB DDR Radeon 9800 Pro. I dunno whether thats a driver or what. And I also don't know my graphics card, or whether that will help at all.

I would swear at this point but I'm too young.

Oh but I'll use this instead

Has anyone got any help for me that I can understand. I'm 14 but I still can understand most computer talk.

Anyway thanks very much for reading all this crap and please try not to point out all my spelling mistakes.

Alex Jordan

Answer:[resolved]Help with resolution and colour and colour quality??.. anyone??

Heya, welcome to the forums


Okay, it has to do with your drivers. Go to ATI's website and find your driver.

Here's the link

http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeonx-xp.html

Please download and install both the Control Center as well as the Display driver. Then restart your computer and try to change the resolution.

Cheers!

Hello friends,
I was just thinking that wouldn't it be great if we get more color options to change the background color on our Windows Phone devices than just black or white as we get on Windows 8.1 devices to customize background color along with tile colour?

Hi Allhope someone more knowledgable can advise - I recently purchased a Lexmark x500n multifunction colour laser printer - I had a big black print job to do excel and word - 2000 pages - i was shocked to see that - ok the black starter cartridge of 2500 pages was nearly empty- fair enough - but all three colour cartridges (1500 page size) were nearly all empty too - I hadn't done any colour printing but when i contacted the manuf they advised that the printer uses colour also to print black!! - it's getting returned to them - but do do all colour lasers do this - obviously this quadruples the costs of printing and has put my costing out of the window!! - any advice would be great - it's a network colour printer, with copier and scanner that I need - a fax would be great but not essential.thanks in advanceTrifly

Answer:COLOUR LASER - PRINTING BLACK USING COLOUR!!

That would pee me off no end. How in God's name can it use colour to create black when there's a black cartridge in there? A cheapo mono laser seems to be your ideal tool. I know nothing about colour laser printers, but is there an option anywhere in the settings to print using only the black cartridge? Does the printer still work if you take out the colour cartridge while printing only black text documents?

Hi,

I know some basic stuff about computers, but I don't know how to fix this problem.

I have Windows XP. Firstly, the computer started running slower than usual for a while (a few weeks), then one day when I started the computer up, a screen came up in the DOS bit at the start asking me what mode I wanted to start in as there was a problem. I selected the option (and Im paraphrasing here) 'The last good configuration' as it seemed best. From then on, the colour went to 4 bit, and an 800x600 resolution. I can't change these settings as I normally would, as there are no other options available. I can use the computer fairly normally, except the awful colour and res. However, if the screensaver comes on, and I re-activate the screen, it will be totally messed up - the edges puffed out like a pincushion setting, black and white, lines travelling down the screen and flickering, sometimes going totally black then coming back again.

My housemate started the computer up and somehow got the original DOS screen back asking which mode to start in - he selected 'safe mode' and the colour was then good - except the internet then wouldn't connect. (I have broadband so it's normally automatic - I don't know how to connect it manually)

This is my brother's computer, so I don't know a lot about it - programs and so on - he's un-contactable at the moment and will be for a couple of months... I'd greatly appreciate any he... Read more

Answer:4 bit colour - why?

to connect to the internet in safe mode you have to select safe mode with networking

But sorry thats all I can offer at the moment

Hi There,

I have a dell inspiron 6000 with mobile intel chipset 9145. I am trying to play TV out, but whenever i attach it to the TV - i am only getting black and white. I have tried changing the colour adminstration within properties to kodakdc and srgb colour space profile but i am still having the same problems.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks
 

Answer:Tv out Has No Colour

It could be a PAL/NTSC setting somewhere. Some laptops have a BIOS setting for TVout. If it's set for NTSC and the TV is set for PAL, or vice versa, you will get video issues. I had a an old DVD player that was 'stuck' on NTSC only. When I tried to play a PAL movie in it, it would play in black and white. Check the back of the TV or wherever all the control switches are (or just read the manual). Check the PC BIOS and the TVout settings if using separate video hardware/software....

Good luck!

It's not a problem, it's just that you've reached the limit to what the Intel video chipset can do.

Thank you. Mike

Answer:Colour representation

What program are you using when printing your digital prints? When printing photo's etc from other sources do they differ as-well. The type of paper you are using can greatly effect the colour output, I found using 180 photo paper from click here improved colour output, the ilford paper available from pc world was pretty good to. You may need to set-up your monitor and the colour profile for your printer. Most photo programs have a gamma set-up program to adjust your monitor correctly, have a look at click here and click here to check your monitor.Your printer may then need setting up to match the profile of the monitor. I am using an Epson C70 and I had to set my profile as RGB colour scale. You will find this setting in printer properties in colour management. You could also go into the custom advanced settings of the main Epson print page and adjust the levels of brightness/contrast or the ink levels.

Open Control Panel and check to see if there an exclamation mark agains your graphics card (Display Adaptor). If there is, one possible cause could be that the card needs new drivers. To do this go to Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware (tab)/ Device Manager.

Answer:Colour printing

Adjust your monitor first using a program like click here then try again. You may have to alter the printer settings for colour as well. The type of paper you print on and the ink will also make a difference. You will never get a perfect match as one is reflected and the other transmitted colour.

Hi lloydy, and welcome to TSG.

Exactly what what kind of cable (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc.) are you using for the connection? Do you have a way of testing the cable, say by temporarily using it to replace a known good cable used for some other connection?

Dear all, After having Installed a New Hard Drive and Re-Installed Windows 98 last night with help from some kind people on here. I now basically have a problem being that the Display only shows 2 or 16 Colours and i need to get True Colour 24-Bit.I've Installed Belarc Advisor and it just says Standard PCI Graphics Adaptor so i need to find the proper Driver for this. I'm sure this is a problem i had before and eventually found one and was told to add a command line in Sysedit (i think that's what it was anyway), so any help n this problem would be much appreciated.Many ThanksAndy

Answer:How do i get True 24-bit Colour

You need to update your drivers, if you have the installation disk for your graphics card then pop it into the drive and run it. If you have on-board graphics the drivers will be on the m/b disk if you have none of the above you will have to find out what graphics card you have and download the drivers from the internet.

Epson 440 will not print in colour...Have changed cartridge and cleaned heads several times but no difference...Colour box is ticked on print options..Any tips would help as I was thinking it was maybe blocked jets.
 

Answer:Epson 440 no colour

How old is the printer? Are the heads part of the color cartridge, or separate? If they're separate, maybe they're worn out and need to be replaced.

Here's part of the Epson FAQs:

Q: Why are the colors in my image incorrect?

A: Due to the fact that your monitor and printer use different
technologies to represent colors, your printed colors cannot exactly
match the colors you see on your monitor screen. Check the ink
setting in the printer driver and make sure it is set to Color, not
Black. Make sure the Media Type setting matches the paper or media
loaded. Let the printer driver automatically select other settings
for the best quality. Check to see that the paper is loaded
correctly by removing the paper and reloading it, making sure that
the printable side is face up. You can also adjust various color
settings in your printer driver and possibly your application
software to correct color problems in your image. Also, the print
head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the
EPSON printer driver, print a nozzle check and examine the printed
dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line
should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are
gaps in the dot pattern, clean the print heads by running the head
cleaning utility in the printer driver. Then, print another nozzle
check. A nozzle check and head cleaning must be performed as a
cycle in order for the cleaning cycles to work. If there are still
gaps in th... Read more

my ' KODAK ESP310 AiO' printer only printing blue/yellow.not picking up red. I have replaced cartridge Kodak 30CL. still no red!

Answer:colour red not printing

The print head nozzle for Red is probably plugged up. Are you using genuine Kodak ink? Do you use the printer regularly? That means every few days.Try running the cleaning process a couple of times. Looks like the printhead is removable. If the above doesn't work then remove the printhead and run it under hot water in the kitchen sink. You will see the different color ink come out by moving the water stream. Rubbing alcohol can also be useful to clean the bottom of the printhead. Use Q-tips.

Question: Colour Issue

Has anyone had an issue with the colour of a second monitor?

For some reason the colours are really off, the monitor on the left has a yellow tint on certain programs but not everything

I've tried the latest NVidia drivers, resetting the TFT and updating the TFT drivers but no joys, it was fine in Windows 7

Screenshot:

Cheers

Answer:Colour Issue

REMOVE the ICC profile for the monitor on the left. (Advanced display settings, Color Management Tab)

It was probably installed by default with the video driver or something. Unless you create one yourself using calibration tools, it's generally best to just remove it completely.

Another potential issue... If you you have a monitor connected via HDMI, it will look very strange on the desktop (lower contrast, extremely bright colors) and I have found no way to really fix it. Always prefer the DVI or display port connectors instead.

I've downloaded K-lite codec pack but I'm not too sure which of the codecs to use and I've read that just installing all of them can cause more problems than they solve.

Answer:Printing in only one colour

Try cleaning the cartridge I think you can do this within the tool box.Failing that if you have been using the other colours a lot you will find it is empty and just needs replacing. It may be showing 50% as you still have blue in the tank.

This sounds like a poor connection either with the cabling to the monitor or within the monitor itself.Check that the cables to the monitor (both ends) are fully pushed home. If that doesn't fix it then it is probably inside the monitor and there is not much you can do yourself - a trip to a repair shop.Just as a final check, though. Are you able to try another monitor?

Answer:Windows 8.1 colour

Hi, Welcome to Eight forums.

I would suggest to create a new account and try if the issue is solved. Here's how you can do that. User Account - Add a New User in Windows 8

If new user account fixes this, then you can check for any third party app that can cause this issue in your main profile.
You can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "Clean Boot." A Clean Boot helps eliminate software conflicts. Here's how to perform Clean boot.

Run a system file checker scan and check if that helps. Refer the following steps to run SFC scan.
a) Move the mouse pointer to bottom left of the screen where you see preview of start menu and Right-click to bring up a list of Windows settings.
b) Click on ?Command Prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated command prompt. Note: Click ?Yes? if it prompts for permission.
c) In the command prompt type in the following command: ?sfc /scannow?.

The monitor does show a red band (plus white and blue saying 'no signal') if I start it before powering up the system, also it has a red colour adjuster of it's own which changes nothing but does show the red colour, so to my limited knowledge I thought that meant that the monitor is ok.However, everything else is missing red and is predominantly blue, green or yellow and grey.I have tried altering all the settings, also done a system restore to a date prior to moving and nothing has changed, can anyone help please?Samwella

Answer:Help, Red Colour Loss!

This may work, may not but try removing ALL external cables from everything on your computer - power, peripherals (printers etc.), monitor, everything. Leave it for a while - this is just so you can collect yourself and calm down. Then reconnect everything very carefully.This doesn't do anything more than connect everything up again but there is just a chance that you've got some cable loose or the wrong way, you know the sort of thing. This procedure has worked for me in the past, it may work for you.Brian

I have a GTX 260, with the latest driver installed. I spent quite a while messing around with my monitor settings, to no avail.

Specs (if needed):

Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.4GHz
Gigabyte GTX 260

Answer:Colour Problem

I don't see what's wrong with your desktop...

As for the game screenshot you provide:

- Most games have their own color settings. Desktop color depth is not automatically applied to games, this has to be done manually in most cases.

- This game seems to be quite old (judging by the polygon count of the models), are you sure that it fully supports your hardware? Do you have any screenshots of newer games with the same problem?

I got brand new printer gave m e but no one could find driver disk so i downloaded it but my printer just prints lines of non sense and in all different colours but wont print it wont print a word pad doc and wont print from dos either plz help very confuzed beginner
 

Answer:Epson colour 440

Sounds like you downloaded the wrong driver.

On their Windows driver page (assuming you're using Windows) there are several options.

If you're using WinXP, the only WinXP applicable file listed is actually a Monitor utility, but it does not state that it includes the driver (never safe to assume anything).

But if you are using WinXP, it already has many printer drivers included.

Try this:

Right-click My Computer
Select Manage option
Select Device Manager
In right pane, expand [+] Printers
Select your new printer
Uninstall the printer
Reboot your system and see if WinXP automatically loads the driver
This means WinXP already had the correct driver.

If this does not work... Is your printer "new" to you (used from someone else)?

If it is actually store-bought new, it should still be under warranty. Go through the store or Epson and get the CD you are missing.

Hey guys.

This is my second time with this issue and I'd like some help with it. Been looking online and I can't find anything.

Basically, I'm using my computer:

Windows 7 Home Edition x64 bit
i7-860 quad core 2.8Ghz
6gb ram
Nvidia Gts 240 (soon to be replaced)

And at seemingly random times, the taskbar along the bottom of the page which is normally transparents turns a sort of bright blue/white colour along with the tab bar at the top of whatever I'm using at the time, usually an internet browser. When this happens I can then hear the fans inside my machine spinning up, I open up RealTemp and the temperature shoots up. The first time it did it It went from around 20 to I think 100 because RealTemp marked one of my cores as "logged" today when it did it the max it got to was about 60. But I wasn't doing anything such as playing a game, I had Skype, Opera and maybe Steam open all at the same time and it got to about 60 degrees in a matter of seconds, then after staying there for about half a minute came back down to around 20.

Any ideas?

I thought it might of been the heat sink, but it seems to be securely fasted. I bought some quality thermal paste and I plan to remove the paste that is currently on my CPU and replace it with this. Is there anything else anyone could reccomend?
