Red typo lines when no typos

Question: Red typo lines when no typos

Hello everyone,

I am experiencing the red typo lines when there are no typos. This happens on occasion when I'm typing emails and posting or responding to forums. It seems to occur when there is an actually typo and I correct the error. After that the entire post/email from that point on will have the red typo lines.

For example it is happening now... I'll try to post a pic for a better understanding.

Has anyone experience this as well and most importantly does anyone know of a solutions to this?

My unit is new and I have yet to DL Office 365 so I don't have Word. Not sure if that will matter.

Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks

I have Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 11, all updates installed, MSE updated as well. I have no add-ons or BHOs either, aside from Shockwave from Adobe. I cannot edit typos in comments in Facebook with Internet Explorer 11. Comments edit just fine with Chrome, and with Opera as well. A clean format with no other software present means that no virus got in, no interference was possible as only windows update was accessed. I have cleaned with Wise Registry cleaner and Wise Disk cleaner, no help. I have spelling correction enabled as well.

Hello, I recently received a new Thipad P50 laptop for work and worked on it several times without issue while connected to a power source. However, when relying on battery power only, I've been experiencing very unusual behavior which leads to many typos as keystrokes are not registering when typing. What's happening is while typing, every few seconds I notice the active window appears to "toggle" and by this i mean that the translucent header above the address bar flashes and changes color slightly, similar to what happens when toggling between active windows. This occurs frequently while typing, and while it toggles, keystrokes simply do not register resulting in many typos. For example, in typing this message, it's taken me three times as long as it should because I have to re-type and correct typos. This is maddening! At first I thought it may relate to slightly resting my hand on ttouchpad or related keys that is resulting in this but can confirm this is not the case as I'm making a point to not rest my palms on the laptop and am still experiencing the issue. I have not done too much experimenting trying to identify the source but I have noticed that I only seem to experience this issue while working from the laptop battery. I do not seem to experience the problem while connected to a power source. I've tried changing the power settings hoping this may help but to no avail. If i can't get this remedied, I will have to return the laptop. Of what use is thi... Read more

Windows XP SP3, Dell XPS 400 system. Service contract expired.
I have a persistent blue screen error. Initially it indicatated hardware problem, now refers to a virus and says to run CHKDSK /F, but I cannot get to a DOS prompt to do that.

I cannot get into Windows, even in safe mode. The computer displays numerous spelling errors on the F8 after starup screen where I can choose from safe mode, last know good, etc.

Any idea what that might be telling me?

I was thinking if I had a boot disk I could at least get to the DOS prompt to run chkdsk.
I have an XP SP1 original CD and booted off it but it only offered install or repair windows, which would not work for some reason. Not sure if I want to go there either.

How can I get far enough into the boot sequence with XP to get to a DOS prompt, or do I even need to?

I'll get more info later but this laptop battery is dying. Please let me know what info will help you - Stop error exact text I would think, what else?
Thanks for your help.

Question: Microsoft Typo

Microsoft made a typo in their WinSAT application, How can we let them know about it?

Answer:Microsoft Typo

Hi Steven,

You can try contacting them by following the link below. Whether or not you will get a response I cannot say. I have managed to locate the error in the 'WinSAT.exe' file (notice the space between the letters), and you can edit it to replace the erroneous 'o' with an 'i', however by doing so you will probably cause it to fail an SFC scan. In my opinion, it is such a minor error that it is probably best left ignored.

I mistyped a url earlier (I believe i typed 'radiosahck' instead of radioshack) and was redirected to a strange website (something about internet surveys I believe) I closed it right away and did a quick scan with malwarebytes to make sure nothing was wrong, and it came up empty. I'm probably being a bit paranoid here, but is this anything to really worry about?

Answer:Odd URL typo redirect...

Redirects can be something to worry about, as you have no idea what content is being hosted on the re-direct. Most popular anti virus programs, have real-time scanning, where it's constantly scanning your computer, and as soon as you're redirected to a bad website, it will block any content that's harmful to your computer. I use Eset and it does this.

But I was able to surf the web kinda in Windows though it timed out often and certain webpages wouldn't even open, and now when ever I enter the correct DNS settings it disconnects from the internet.  
Here's what I entered

I'm really feeling uneasy and stressed about this, any advice?
Why does stuff like this happen whenever your in poor health or any other of life's trials and complications?

Answer:Open DNS typo on router

Two things you might check:
1. In Windows, do your Network Properties have a DNS Server entry(s) that point(s) to your router (probably or close) or do they point to the published OpenDNS IP addresses? Easy check: From an Elevated Command Prompt: ipconfig /all
2. After you corrected the DNS router entries, did you have the router do a cold reboot?
I believe you shouldn't overly stress yourself over this if you didn't make any financial transactions. But new passwords could be needed.

So I was browsing around in Windows Defender (Windows Settings > Update & Security > Windows Defender > Open Windows Defender Security Center > Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings, then scroll down to Controlled folder access.)

The sentence "Protect your files and folders from unauthorized changed by unfriendly applications" has a typo in it.
(Refer to the attached picture)

? The word "changed" has a typo in it and should be the word "changes" (with an 's' instead of a 'd'), or
? There is at least one missing word in between the words "unauthorized" & "changed"
Somebody should inform Microsoft about this typo.

But Also: I noticed that this is a new option, since the last time I was browsing around in there. What does this option exactly do? It was originally off, but I turned it On. Yet I must say that I have seen a few messages pop up in the right corner of the screen, stating that Windows Defender blocked some programs from making changes. One of them showed explorer.exe from modifying the Favorites folder without me doing anything with Favorites. Exactly what does this option do? Is it kind of like some sort of strict "Firewall"? Because if so, then I like that.

Blocks access to your files and documents by unknown apps (malware/ransomware). It's off by default because not all 'good' apps are in it's 'trusted' list. It takes a bit of fiddling to get all your apps to work after you turn it on.

Memory corruption caused by an unknown driver. Please run memtest and driver verifier.

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo? For example, I type "tsanding," and instead of changing it to "standing," it underlines it red. I know I can then right-click it, and select AutoCorrect > standing, so that, from now on, if the same exact typo arises in the future, in which I accidentally type "tsanding," it'll change it to "standing." I've thus far collected *hundreds* of specific typo corrections in this way. But that's very time-consuming, and is only a weak attempt at preventing typos I may be likely to make in the future (based on the fact that I made the exact typo at least once before). Is there any way to establish that I want Microsoft Word to go ahead and correct every single "underlined red" occurrence from now on, based on its best guess as to what I meant? (except in cases where the typo was so bad that it has no guess at all) That way, when it corrects something I *didn't* want corrected, I can then go back and add what I wanted to its dictionary, to tell it not to consider that word an accident from then on.

Answer:Is there a way to tell Microsoft Word to "guess" what I mean every time I make a typo?

Found this in the Word Help files. On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect Options. In the Replace box, type a word or phrase that you often mistype or misspell ? for example, type usualy. In the With box, type the correct spelling of the word ? for example, type usually. Click Add. Is this what you're talking about?

Answer:My Windows 7 copy looks counterfeit. Typo on back cover. Came from China (eBay). Pics

It's fake, that's pretty obvious. The hologram thing is most likely a sticker on top of the actual disc surface - you can use a fingernail or razor blade at the very edge and lift it up a bit, that's 100% proof. The part numbers don't seem to match up with the actual Windows 7 Ultimate part number, and it just has a fake quality all the way around.

If you contact Microsoft, show them the pics, explain where you bought it from and your situation, there is a small - small but it exists - chance they'll provide you with a key just for making the report and identifying the seller you got it from.

No guarantees, but at the moment you're better off reporting it to them and going from there. Sure can't hurt to let them know, either way.

I'd report it, personally, without even really thinking about it. It just SCREAMS fake.

Hi,how can I auto number lines in Excel 2010, only with text in the second column, see example:1. abcd blank blank2. efghi3. jklmn

Answer:autonumber lines but skip blank lines

Not completely sure what you want, but try this:If your data look like this:
1) 1 abcd
2) 2 efgh
3) 3 ijkl
5) 4 mnop
6) 5 qrst
8) 6 uvwx

First in cell A1, you must start the sequence by manually entering the number 1Next in cell A2 enter the formula:=IF(ISTEXT(B2),MAX($A$1:$A1)+1,"")Next drag the formula down as many cells as needed.See how that works.MIKE

Question: ati red lines

Im having problems with my ati x850xt, my computer randomly crashed one day in the middle of cs. It was not caused by overheating or from a power surge, i rebooted and i know have little white lines on my windows loading screen and have faint red lines on my desktop.

In the device manager it does not recongnize my video card in the device manager, and anytime i try to install the hardware i get numerous errors, but the result is always the same, unable to install software

ive tried driver cleaner and reinstalling new copies of software but its pointless because the hardware is not unstalled =\

the part that confuses me is it lets me change my resolution to 1280x1024 but just shows faint red streaks only on dark colors (black blue green)

i might be able to RMA it since i ordered it from newegg a number of months ago but wanted to see if there was any simple fixes before im out of a computer for a week.

Answer:ati red lines

RMA the card. Everything points towards that.

I had just done a log and my question is what are the 2 entries listed in lines R0 and R1. Seems to me that these may not be right.

I do use WinPatrol, which locks in my 'local host' file. It does work, but this does seem to be a bit strange.

I had removed CWW Shredder from my puter last week (kids) and was wondering if this may be left over as well.

BUt let me know if there is something that needs to be done here.

Here is a copy of my host file from WinPatrol :

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host localhost

Question: SIP vs PRI Lines

Ok, so this is for the telcom/VOIP/sysadm folks...

Does anyone have either SIP of PRI lines at your place of business?

Are there any Pro's/Con's of using one over the other?

I've heard (granted, from a salesman) that SIP is the new thing...are there any growing pains associate with going with this technology rather than the "tried and true" PRI lines?

I'm in the final stages of making a decision on a new VOIP system for my company, and knowing whether we want SIP or PRI will make a marginal difference in the cost of these I'm just trying to get some input.

About our system: 70 phones, 2 cities, 3 offices. Will have 2 chassis (one in each city) with fail/roll-over capabilities. Would like to keep our present DID's. Presently on a trunked T1 with multiple dedicated analog lines (faxes etc).

Any info would be appreciated.

Answer:SIP vs PRI Lines

SIP is just a way of doing VoIP, it doesn't really explain how the phone co will be delivering it to you. PRIs, on the other hand, are pretty descriptive.

For my money, I will always go with copper to the phone company. Tried and true, and SLAs are nice nice things. PRI all the way.

Hi Connie,

Most HJT/Spyware Forums have you remove those items as they are considered mild spyware.

Personally, I have always tended to leave them alone in my fixes - There are worse things out there! Plus, a lot of people never use this and, therefore, are not "spied" upon.

As far as I am concerned, it is a "Personal Preference" type of thing . . . .

So we have an operating system that was five years in the making, it boasts 64 bit yet it's not any faster? Go figure.

I have not found one single review that states emphatically that Vista is vastly superior to XP, which it should be.

So they threw in a little 3D eye candy. Big deal. They are going to have to come up with a bit more than that to get me to pony up a few hundred bucks for their product.

These lines only flash within windows, not the desktop, therefore I figure it isn't the hardware.They also seem worse after booting or initial use after inactivity. Also these lines do not show in a screen shot.
So far I have initialized my Hard Drive and installed a new clean updated OS, no luck.

I have windows me and a compaq presario. if anyone has an idea if there is something wrong with the graphics card or display settings or whatever, it would be great if you had some advice. thanks

Answer:lines across screens

The easiest thing you could try would be to DLoad the latest drivers for that graphics card...Since the condition existed on 2 different monitors we can rule that out.Make sure after you have gotten the latest drivers that you remove the device in Control Panel Hardware etc. and reboot.This is the cleanest way to do so.

Hi to all,

I have a PDF file (FreeBSD Handbook). I want to print it in paper (A4 size) and read it because reading it from screen hurts my eyes. My problem is that the lines are very tiny and long. If I print the pages in A4 size the lines/words will not be readable. If you look at the picture below you find out my problem. The solution in my mind is to somehow cut the lines and then print the lines in a bigger size. This way, the context will fit into the size of A4 paper and also readable. Is anyone aware of a tool or way to do that solution?

If this is a company computer I would suggest calling the company IT department to fix this, this would not only save you from getting into trouble but will save you from getting into trouble.

If you are getting video until it starts booting into Windows the problem sounds like a bum video driver but not being familiar with the specs on this particular computer or whether it is on a network or not it is just a guess.

Can anyone give me an accurate estimate (+/-  five million) of the number of lines of code in WindowsXP with Service Pack2??Thanks,KJ

Answer:How many lines of code in XP/SP2 ??

Best ask Microsoft that, but it's harder than you think to get an accurate number. There will be literally thousands of functions which will be in seperate files strewn al over the computer.Quite frankly, I doubt that Microsoft will be bothered/willing to give you an answer. Just accept that there is a lot of lines to an OS.If you were really desperate, most of the varients of Linux are open-source, so you could count them for yourself.

When i turn on my computer (my other computer) there are colorful vertical lines and they change when it gets to the windows loading screen (i cant see the windows logo but i know that when it would show) and then everything loads fine in the background but all i see are many vertical lines and a square for a mouse. Just lines and the square mouse that moves is all i see...

I have taken the video card out and made sure it was inserted good, and checked all the connections.


Answer:I can't see my screen! (LINES)


You will have to give a little detail here (as the forum rules prohibit us from mind reading, which is a pity)

Is this a CRT or an LCD monitor, make and model etc.

I recently had to use the system recovery because windows wouldn't load. After the Windows XP screen it would just go black. After I restored it there are these Lines on my screen that just wont go away. Ill provide some screen shots in a minute. Ive updated my videocard drivers aswell.

Now I dont know if you can see them but there are little green lines in the bottom left corner. my friend says he cant see them in on the screenshots so maybe only i can see them, i just hope u know what im talking about.

Any idea on how to fix this?

Answer:Little Lines on my Screen

Hi soulja,

First, this may be a monitor problem (one of my monitors has a white line that goes across the top)

I can't see any gray lines in your photo, but then again, the resolution is a lot lower than your screen's.

Take a screenshot of your screen, copy it into paint, and hit Ctrl+PageDown. Scroll to the bottom left corner. If you see these lines huge and magnified, then it's an XP problem. If not, it's a monitor problem.

Question: HELP pink lines

I have a Philips HEPC-7511 desktop PC I have a bit of a problem explained below. It?s a bit long winded but explains everything any help would be much appreciated

I was playing pes6 when all of a sudden it froze and made this weird buzzing sound and in the screen it looked like every other pixel was pink. So I left it to see if it would unfreeze but it didn?t so I switched it off at the plug. Then I turned it on again and normally you get a white screen with Phillips written in the middle this time I got the same screen but with a few pink vertical lines down the screen, then it says do you want to start windows normally or some other options I went start normally and you get the usual screen with the bar running across it and that?s all it does and restarts. So next time I went for find problem and restore to last good time it didn?t do nothing, so went into safe mode no pink lines anywhere to be seen saved everything I wanted and got out, then I did a destructive install which deletes everything ( which was okay coz I saved everything I needed on my external hard drive). Then I installed windows from a CD and did repair the cpu restarted with no pink lines on the white startup screen ( it looked normal) windows then went about installing normally, baring in mind the resolution looked like 800X600 rather then the normal 1280x1024. The installation got to a point where you put your name and password in at this point the resolution corrected it self to the normal 1280x1024... Read more

Answer:HELP pink lines

This sounds like the graphics card is dieing, I am assuming that you are using the most recent drivers.

But if people have already sujested to that it is the graphics card. You need to understand there is not going to be any magic setting or button you push that is doing to fix it. Computer components die, its fact.

Question: monitor lines

Im having trouble with lines at the top of my monitor. If i move one of the cables on the back of the monitor the lines go away. Seems to be something lose behind the cord inside the monitor.? Is this an easy fix or should i consider buying a new monitor? thx people.

Answer:monitor lines

Sounds like a loose connection. First thing to do would be to make sure the monitor cord (I assume this is what you are moving?) is securely connected.

If that doesn't work, disconnect the cord from the PC end (you shouldn't, as far as I'm aware, be able to disconnect it on the monitor side. If you are there's something terribly wrong ) and check that there are no bent pins or anything of that sort.

Question: hoizontal lines

When starting windows7, horizontal lines cover the entire screen. I have to shut down the computer and restart to correct this, sometimes several times.

Answer:hoizontal lines

Hello Nancy and welcome to Seven Forums.

It would be very helpful if you could provide some information about your computer. At the top of any Forum page, click on "User CP". Then in the left column click on "Edit System Spec". Fill in as much information as you can, especially the manufacturer, model and whether it's a desktop or laptop.

From what you've described those horizontal lines could be a bad graphics card, a bad monitor/screen, a driver problem, etc. That's why it will help to know what kind of computer you have.

In the meantime, try starting your computer in Safe Mode by accessing the Advanced Boot Options menu.

Safe Mode

See if those horizontal lines still appear. If they don't you could try rolling back your computer to an earlier date/time (prior to when this problem first appeared) by using a system restore point.

System Restore

You could also go through these troubleshooting guides. They'll help isolate if this is a software problem or a hardware problem.

Question: Lines on screen

Just recently on my desktop, and in some applications there are faint green lines on the desktop. My monitor does not have dead pixels, because when the bios starts there are no defects. I recently installed hl2, and was getting an error. On some forums it said to run msconfig>>boot.ini>>advanced>>maxmem and then set it to my amount (2048). Then I unchecked it after the install. That is the only change I have recently done on my pc. Please help it is very irritating
