I can't set a black custom colour.

Question: I can't set a black custom colour.

Now before I say anything else, I /do/ know how to use the Registry Editor and control color command, but I have the same problem with both of them. I try setting them to black and it just reverts to blue. I'll show you the best I can with screenshots, but it might seem fake- Trust me, it's not. Windows is automatically doing this when I choose the colour black.

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?

I have an HP Photosmart printer C6180 "All in one". It is a very good printer but uses the five separate colour cartridges at an alarming rate. The first job I did (With all cartridges therefore full)was to print a 250 page book in black, but I found that although the black cartridge coped well, the book had also used up half the yellow cartridge! Does anyone know why this is and what has the yellow cartridge to do with printing in black?

Answer:Why does black printing need colour?

Best ask Printer Manufacturers, I think it's so they sell more ink. If they have a full Black cart then it should use it not mix ink to create a dirty brown

Hi all, around xmas time I bought a new Epson 830 printer.I have been very pleased with the quality of photo's and all other printing. I now find that, when my colour cartridge has run out, it will not print plain black text, and when i click on print, it only comes up with a window telling me to replace my colour cartridge.I have been into settings, and changed them to print black ink only, but with just the same results.Has anyone else had this problem, or can anyone tell me how to sort it.Thanx in anticipation. Joe.

Answer:Epson 830 black text without colour cartridge.

Hello,
this is my first post and I hope I am posting in the correct area.

I have been looking for an answer to this and am still stuck after a couple of days.

I have pc with windows 7 home premium 64 bit and an LG flatron E1940S monitor, I am just moving on to this pc and intend to use photoshop on it.
The problem is that moving my images from my xp system, the colours are not right. Black and white shows as sepia as an example, and there seems to be a brownishness to everything.

I have tried adjusting the monitor.
I have looked at the colour management in windows and set to srgb.
I have tried windows calibration and there was a slight difference but not a good enough correction to replace the original settings.
i have installed the updates for the nvidia.

Any help appreciated please?

The monitor did not come as a bundle but was purchased with the pc and I just had to plug it in, I don't know if I need (nor where they are to be found) a driver/colour profile for that.

thanks for any help
Lisa

Answer:colour management black and white is sepia

Are you using a VGA cable? It might have a loose connection ...

Try resetting your monitor to factory settings. Check if the "temperature setting" is around 6500K, this is supposed to be the correct one (this should be set in NVidia Control Panel).

Hope this helps!

Answer:Can I tell windows to print black text in colour

I think the answer is "no". But, of course, you can probably change the font colour in Word or whatever software the document is being printed from. But that will require trial and error -- you'll have to specify colours which don't have any black mixed in them.

I have a Brother DCP-115C printer with blurry print when using black ink but not when using coloured ink. Somehow the text on the test print document comes out ok in black, and the alignment test print looks correct too. When I print from Microsoft Word, (or notepad), it comes out blurry.

This is a problem that has just started happening after the printer has been working fine for a good six months. I've replaced the black ink cartridge with a new Brother branded cartridge to see if that made any difference but it didn't. I've been through cleaning and test print and alignment many times. I can't find anything in the firmware that I haven't tried. I've searched the internet and manufacturer's site to no avail.

See attached screen shots, (bear in mind these are scanned images so even the print I'm saying looks ok in real life actually looks pretty bad on the scanned image).

Please help, this is very frustrating!

They should be fit for the purpose they were sold for. Contact them would be the first thing to do. If that doesn't bear fruit, just buy from more from someone else.

Hi all. I can't seem to find how to have a straight black desktop background. The closest is a medium grey. I just want a straight black if possible... Can you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Answer:plain black desktop solid colour wallpaper

Right click on the desktop and choose "Personalize".

Then change the "Background" dropdown from "Picture" to "Color". The default is black. However, don't change the color if you want to keep black, there isn't any way to get back to black (the best you can get is a dark grey.

The only way I know of to get around this is to edit it in the registry manually:

HKCU\Control Panel\Colors\Background

Change the colors "0, 0, 0", then you have to log off and log back on.

Start the Camera Assistant software and in the Properties you could find the option called ?Backlight Compensation?. Check this option.
Furthermore in the ?Image? tab you will find some controls like: brightness, gamma, hue, saturation and sharpness. Play around with these settings.

Have you done anything about that? Something like testing it with clean preinstalled OS?

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what the problem can be. It can be caused by software but also hardware can be responsible for this.
In my opinion you should back up all your data and install original Vista again and test it with ?factory settings?.

If the problem occurs again thee must be some hardware problem.

Okay, confusing subject title? I will explain and hopefully someone can throw some light on this continuing, worsening, problem.

Firstly, I am visually impaired and am forced for a number of reasons to use Windows High Contrast Black as my colour scheme. On the whole, this is a troublefree solution to my visual loss, except when it comes to the Internet. Over the years, the use of what I assume are 'Flash' type buttons, are becoming more and more common, and some are seemingly incompatible with the above mentioned colour scheme. Please follow the brief instructions below, so you can see what I'm going on about. I will assume that anyone with the knowledge of how to solve this, will know how to change a Windows colour scheme.

1. Go to www.pizzahut.com and note the existence of menu buttons near the top of the screen. They contain labelling such as 'Pizza', 'Wings', etc... Hopefully, if you are using a reasonably normal Windows scheme, these should be visible.
2. Now change your Windows Colour to 'High Contrast Black'. There are about 6 so called high contrast schemes in this section, and for all I know this little experiment may work with all of them, but for my purposes, choose only 'High Contrast Black'
3. Now return to the Pizza Hut address I gave you and either put the address in again, or simply reload the page.
4. Those menu buttons should now be invisible. If you run the mouse pointer over them, the pointer will s... Read more

Hi

can anyone give me some advice please?

I’ve got a problem with my printer as soon as it runs out of one colour it will not print anymore, this is fine however all I want to do these days is print black ink only, im not interested in colour printing or photo printing.

Initially I bought the printer for photos colour etc and I do like the printer and it prints good quality documents and quite fast, but I only need black and white for 99% of my needs.

Its there a way to configure it to use the black cartridge only and to ignore the other cartridges?

I have changed the setting in the printer software to print greyscale only but, it’s still the same, as soon as one colour goes the printer fails to print and tells me to change colour cartridges.

I would be happy if the only cartridge I ever have to change is the black one.

Im working with Vista.

Ive searched the net to try and find a solution but getting nowhere, Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

I have a custom built PC that I put together about 3 1/2 months ago (the specs are up-to-date).
The problem is that after restarting, or shutting down the first time I try to boot is a black screen with a flashing white underscore _ that continues on endlessly (the most I waited before holding the power button was ~5 minutes).

Possibly unrelated, but who knows, on the Windows Log-on screen nearly 90% of the time when resuming from sleep or turning on, repeats a letter I press around 10 times or so. This also happens when typing normally in applications such as Safari (twice so far while typing this up) and Office.

Any help is much appreciated!

Hi there!

Im working on a laptop for my friend. She wanted me to format it and install W7, so I did. It`s an Acer Aspire 5520. It came with Vista, and now I installed W7 on it.

The installation finishes and reboots. After that, nothing happens. I went to BIOS to check boot priority, and HDD is first. When I turn it on, there is just a black screen with a underscore blinking in the top left corner. After several attempts, I reinstalled W7, but that didnt help. I tried making a Vista-CD but now the CD/DVD drive is not showing in BIOS, so only option i have is to boot from HDD which isnt working. When I start the computer, the CD/DVD start spinning, but its not booting or going to installation.

Any idea what I can do? I have used the same discs to installe W7 on 3 other computers this week, so I know that they are working..
 

Answer:Custom install w7, black startup screen

The fix for the underscore cursor would usually be an MBR repair which in Win7 would be the bootrec /fixmbr command at the command prompt.

But you can't boot to the Win7 DVD. Perhaps you could use the Microsoft USB Tool to put your Win7 installation DVD onto an empty USB flash drive and boot from that. Then select Repair your Computer rather than installation and get to the command prompt and run the fix mbr command.

Edit: I see that that tool wants an ISO image of the installation disc. So you would need to create an ISO from your DVD first. Something like Imgburn would have the ability to "Create Image File from Disc" which would take your DVD and create an ISO file on your HD which you could then put on USB using the Microsoft tool.

I'm trying to install the Gizdom Reloaded theme for Windows 7. However, when I click the .theme file, I get the default Aero theme and a black wallpaper. I have patched the required files using the Universal Theme Patcher. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium x64 (build 7601) with SP1.

Answer:Custom themes just change wallpaper to black

HiMy Custom built Windows 8 PC keeps Black Screen'ing me after boot up.Theres no error message or anything. It just sort of crashes.I can't even log on. But sometimes, if I'm lucky it will show the login screen and I can type in my password, but then it freezes, often crashing into a Black Screen like it does after boot up.I've tried system restore, or automatic repair, but it doesnt fix the issue. I have tried a RAM check but no issues or errors found.I don't want to reinstall Windows 8.

So I recently got a new computer with Windows 8. After adjusting to the interface I decided to install Halo: Custom Edition. On load for whatever reason the menu screen loads up black. I can hear the music and if I move my cursor I can hear the sounds, but I can't see anything. I've read around that it's coased by Anti-Aliasing, and upon looking around my graphic driver's control panel (Intel HD Graphics at the moment) I found no settings for Anti-Aliasing. Is there a different way I could load it? I already tried 640x480 and it didn't work. And help would be appreciated.

So i'm using a theme (Simplify8) from DevArt and when I apply it, some of my icons show this weird black line on the left of the icon when I am in any view larger than "Medium Icons" view.

The first image is when the icons are in "Medium Icons" view. When it is in that view, it is fine. The second image is just another zoom level higher (one ctrl + scroll up) and the black line shows. If you look closely, the icons themselves look different. It seems that Windows either switches to a bigger icon set or presents them differently. Minus the black line, this happens regardless of whatever theme I use. The third image is just the largest icon view so you can see the black line more clearly.

I've contacted the creator of the theme and he has no idea how to fix it. I'm hoping someone here could give me some insight on what is going on as I really like this theme and this is my only problem with it.

I have a bit of experience with Windows Style Builder so if you know what I have to change in there, I probably can. The OS is W8.1 and it is a completely fresh install shy of UltraUXThemePatcher and applying the theme.

Thanks for the help.

Due to some scheduling issues and an unexpected issue with my car, I was forced to put my gaming rig build on hold.

Now the time has come to put one together, but I'm starting to look around, and I'm wondering if it's just as good to buy one from the store. I mean Best Buy, and Walmart, and even Target are having some huge sales for Black Friday. and if New egg is still the way to go. Could I get an updated build? Half the parts on the old build are sold out or unavailable.


Requirements:


- Quad core preferred -
- AMD build -
- Good GPU -


Please include a case and if needed extra cooling devices.

Price Range

$700-800

Windows 7 will be used. If that could be incorporated in the price, great. If not I will make due.

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.

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

Ok.. I'm just throwing this out here...it's darn late hihi

I have written a 'program' (script), which will automate a recovery system for windows 7, full with a working bootmanager, (custom) partitioning, ramdisks, custom environment (winre/pe), and backup imaging , all legal and licensed according to microsoft as long as its not distributed (aka single computer [home] end user).

I decided after hourrrrssss and weeeks of reading, researching, testing, failing, testing again, reading again, installing F amounts of programs, running sysprep, MDT2010, WAIK, dism, imagex, winpe, winre, bootsect, bcdedit, you name it, I came to the conclusion.. I gotta write something up for the other poor souls around out there.

I'm not going into more details now, but I was thinking of writing this up in c++ or so and asking for donations, which will entitle support in the odd event it would not* work in your case.

However, to just test it all that it works, I wrote it in scripts (batch and vbs) which I realize now I never shall do again :P (more an OOP man myself)

I write programs normally so dealing with exceptions extensively in batch is just .... well about as time consuming as 20 % of the time I spent on R&D on all this.

Answer:Easy Custom image + custom recovery OEM like system?

OKi.. update. I see now more how this program will work. shame its all working fine with .hta, .vbs and .bat.
ANyway, a full gui app will be present in windows 7 and lets a person set up all his wishes and desires for how he wishes ot have his recovery partitions system set up, incl. the option of other partitions to include in this.

When everything is done, a mikepe disk is created (a custom recovery disk which inclues a wimpe native application of this program ) which will run the precompiled settings from win 7 and will rebuild the partitions, all ready to go. It will also link this system to one single computer only (due to licensing issues and piracy protection.. I'm guessing the latter is easily hacked lol). Anyway, after that, it's all just some hours of installoing, setting up, and voila off to go.

A base windows 7 installation (no extra programs), will create a recovery partition of ~ 3 GB and will be redeploiyed all set to go with your own old account and password in less than 5 minutes.

If you add all your own programs etc, the rebuild can take up to 1 hour.

Still much faster than installing windows, changing all your settings, creating yoru account, installing all those programs... etc.

Will also I think add several boot options, as to recover damaged boot loaders, including support for adding boot entries and back up of linux, vista, xp any OS partitions. You will also be able to give the boot entries any name u fancy like:

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)

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!
