Microsoft has released a HotFix, which adds support to the Indian Rupee currency font in Windows.
But what do you do after you install the update? How do you actually use it in practice on your computer? How do you type the Indian Rupee symbol in your documents? What if the person you send document to does not have the Rupee font installed? How to preserve the Indian Rupee Font when sent to other users or computer ? MVP colleague Ashish has written a nice article on how you can do it.

HI,I have an X60 ThinkPad laptop. My power on password contains a key combination of "shift" + "2" for the @ symbol.  However, whenever I press the "shift" key and the "2" it does not register any input.  I can use the "shift" key for capitalization, but not in combination with any numbers for the symbols.  I have tried using several different keyboards, and all have same result.  I can enter all letters and numbers in the password, just not the @ symbol which is the only character that is a combination of the "shift" and a number.  I have also tried turning the "Num Lock" and "Scroll Lock" keys on and off with no result either way.  I am not sure why it would allow me to set this password if it will not allow me to use it.  Thank you for your time and help...I have been pulling my hair out for over a week.

Hi, I recently bought a X120e notebook. I can see that it has a SIM card slot within. Also some drivers have been provided on the Lenovo support site for Gobi 2000/3000/Ericsson/Huwawei 3G modules. DOes this notebook come pre-fitted with one of these data cards ? Or do we have to buy one separately? Regards,Sandip

For some reason my notebook has crashed. It was freezing when i was surfing the internet and now seems to have literally died.It goes in to the Samsung Recovery start page but won't actually start the programme.I have kept it up to date with all the updates both Samsung / Windows 7 . It is only out of warranty so cant send it back. Any one throw any ideas as to what might be the problem.I'm thinking myself the HD has given up the ghost.If thats the case how do i reinstall a new one as the X120 has no drive?

Answer:14 month old Samsung X120

As I understand it - the fact that it is just out of warranty as you put it, it could still be eligible for repair depending on how much you paid for it- ie: if it was a few hundred pounds then it is reasonably expected to last longer than your 1 or 2 yr warranty (depending on what it was) You can have a read through here enter link description here in the meantime and maybe someone else will come on and post more information for you.

Hi,When you consider that you can get an asus eeepc for 220-250$, I wonder if the x120 high price tag is justifiable. I own a x220 and love it, but really it wasn't that expensive if you compare to similar options (fast cpu, lightweight, long battery life...). When it comes to a netbook, the cpu are pretty much the same, along with size and weight. I wonder what the x120 would give me that an eeepc doesn't, given it's about twice the price! Thanks,Dave

Answer:How does x120 compares to other netbook

-ThinkPad name-ThinkPad Service-Better Chassis construction-Easier serviceability-Slightly better keyboardAnd you can get multi-year warranty with onsite and thinkpad protection if you are game for it.

Battery life looks better, and I'm glad to hear that they fixed the heat issue.  It's still a bit on the heavy side, but then again it's not really a "netbook", is it?  Windows 7 Pro is a nice perk as well.

X120e has no mSATA mini PCIe compatibility, so Intel 310 SSD will be of no use for creation of high speed SSD + HDD system. But Super Talent CoreStore MV has standard mini PCIe interface, so it can be detected and used by notebooks with no mSATA support. The only problem is booting of OS from it as X120e bios has only PCI LAN boot option. Is it possible to leave HDD as the boot source in bios but only with boot sector, which will redirect to SSD, where Windows will be actually installed? Another option is to push Lenovo to add PCI SSD to boot options in bios. The guys with Dell notebooks have succeeded in this question and got an updated bios from their tech. support...   

Answer:X120 + mini PCIe SSD CoreStore MV

Hello,
 
All I can think of is that you would have to try purchasing the Super Talent CoreStore MV mSATA mini PCIe SSD and experimenting.  I would strongly suggest buying from a reseller that has a good returns policy, in case it does not work.

Use System Restore to restore your computer to a previous point in time. This should fix any errors you may be encountering. To do so, click the Start button, go to either All Programs or Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, then click System Restore. I believe (but I may have the spelling of this command off) you could also press your Windows logo key + R, type rstrui.exe and press enter.

Okay so i've been struggling to find a fix to this and Lenovo support hasn't really been too useful either. Basically the trackpoint is having issues working even with the newest bios, etc. and synaptics driver. It also is having problems with the old driver too?? Could it be in conflict with the new bios update? Lenovo Support gave me the advice to reformatte as it is a "software" issue and to repeat the same above process. Yet the problem still persists.  What steps should I try next?  Lenovo support seems reluctant to give me a hardware exchange Thanks in advance, any advice is open to testing! I'm just fed up with new drivers having bugs like this.

So one day, I turn my computer on and the symbol attached has firmly placed itself in the bottom right corner of my screen. It goes over the task bar and all programs. It resizes with different resolutions when it's reminding me of its presence when I'm playing games and it can't be screen captured (hence the badly made copy and the phone pic of it). When clicked it doesn't react, it merely acts like it's not there. Any help would be appreciated.

My laptop (a ThinkPad L530 with Windows 7) was unable to play sound in my emulator and I got an error from my Dolby Advanced Audio Drive every time I  booted my laptop, so I looked my problem up on the internet. I found that I had to install a specific sound driver. I did that.  When I rebooted my laptop, the error didn't appear anymore, but my sound didn't work at all. There is now a red x on the sound symbol in the lower right of my screen and I can't adjust the volume. When I click the sound symbol, my computer tries to solve the problem, but is not able to solve it and finds that the audio device is turned off. When I try to turn the audio device on, nothing happens.I tried to run a system recovery, but that didn't work. After that I tried to run a system recovery in safe mode, but my computer couldn't do that either.I have now reinstalled the original sound driver via the Lenovo website, but that didn't solve the problem.

Hi all

Am helping a guy who is having problems with online forms, every time he goes to order it says his email address is invalid, that it needs an @ in it. Even though he keeps typing it in, whether it be Amazon or Ebay, it doesn't recognize the email address.

I thought maybe if he typed it in in ASCII it might work, but he's using a laptop so doesn't have a numeric keypad. He says that someone recommended he disable everything in msconfig-->startup but didn't seem to make a difference.

He is using IE 6, and WinXP. He has not updated to SP2 as he is a little gunshy about updating his system as he has had a bad experience with it.

Any ideas?

So let us start with your diagnosis, which might just be spot-on. Even as a "novice" if you were able to install Baidu then I must assume that you will be able to uninstall Baidu. Start with that and let us see what happens.

Just for your information.... for adequate Malware protection all you need are the following....

1. A good helping of that rare commodity called "common sense"
2. Windows Defender - updated daily and a scan run every day
3. A good 3rd-party free online scanner which you run once a week - for example, Malwarebytes; Emsisoft; Trend Housecall - all very good, all free

Does anyone know how to get the "since", an upside-down "therefore" symbol, in Microsoft Word?I have read the thread on getting the "therefore" symbol, but I can't seem to find a "since" symbol.

Answer:How do you get the "since" symbol in Word?

2. Move the mouse pointer to the Menu Bar near the top. Click "Insert", then "Symbol". 3. Ensure that the tab at the front is "Symbols". 4. Ensure that the "Font" panel shows "(normal text)". (Word 97 users, take particular note.) 5. On the bottom line (without scrolling) of letters, fourth from the left, click the capital circumflexed ?. (In Word 97, it might be second from the left.) 6. Click "Shortcut Key". Normally the "Save changes in" should read "Normal.dot". 7. Alt + Shift + C (this means, hold down [Alt] and [Shift] while you press C). You will see the keystroke combination you just made in a panel named "Press new shortcut key". 8. Click "Assign". This will assign that keystroke shortcut to capital C circumflex, that is, ?. 9. Click "Close". (Assign next character) 10. See the small circumflexed ? to the right of the ?, and click it. 11. Click "Shortcut Key". 12. [Alt] + c. 13. Click "Assign". 14. Click "Close".

It happens to all the icons at the same time that have a shortcut symbol at the bottom left of the icon and it happens randomly but, very, very often. The shortcut symbol on my desktop icons disappears or changes into other symbols like a semi transparent gray X, or the white box has two little figures in it, or a yellow upward facing triangle with an exclamation point in it, or blue downward pointing arrow, or a green circle with a white check mark in it, or one of a few other symbols. I don't know why it happens, what it means, or how to stop it from happening. I've rebuilt the icon cache but, that did nothing. NOBODY has been able to help me.

Hello,

I am a researcher and I have downloaded some blood investigation results from a machine. The problem is when these results (numbers) were exported to Excel 2003, I get the  symbol after each number in each cell. I have tried to format the Excel cells to various choices: number, scientific and special but failed to 'derecognise' the symbol. The problem comes when I formulate the rows or columns - the symbol needs to go before the cells would follow the formulae. I have attached a small portion of the results for you to see what I mean. You can see that I have manually removed the symbol from some cells under the Na and Cl columns in order to get the Na-Cl ∆. Nevertheless, I will be doing with thousands of data and manually removing the symbol alone will be a nightmare.

A friend told me that such symbol usually signifies a Carriage Return or Line Feed but he's not sure how to avoid this going directly to Excel file from the machine. He advised me to save the file into an rtf or txt format and then import it into excel. Honestly, I tried but I could not even see xls as a choice under the Save as type.

Does anyone have a tip on how I could easily get rid of the  symbol?
 

Answer:How to get rid of symbol from cells

Cell B2 -- copy the character after 44.1 to the clipboard.

Press CTRL+H. Paste (CTRL+V) the character into "Find What". Leave "Replace with" blank. Click Replace All.

That'll strip some of them. Repeat for cell C4 (111.5&#63294.

And repeat again (C7?). It should take you 3 passes to clear them all. HTH

Hi guys,

First of all I apologize if this is the wrong forum to post this in.

Just last night I started noticing a red no symbol appearing on my computer. It always appears in the same place, no matter what program I am using, and even if I am just sitting on my desktop.

I recently did a fresh install of Win 7 Pro (32 bit) but I didn't notice the problem immediately after that install. Is it some sort of virus?! I've never seen anything like it before.

I have attached pictures for reference.

Please help!

I had several copies of a file, all different ages, in Word, Outlook, and on CD. They were all copies of my resume, and contained a symbol (a dot). Suddenly every dot in all files became another symbol, a wingding that looks like an open box. What happened? Is there a way to search for all of this symbol either in a file at a time or throughout the memory. I tried the "find-replace" but it wouldn't work with symbols, I also tried the "autocorrect" but couldn't make it work either. Any suggestions?

Answer:symbol substitution

What you have is a font, thats not on your system. Usually you will get a ⌂ type symbol, but your word doc, may try to replace it with another. The simplest thing to do is manually delete the funky symbols, and change them to a similar ".", like Century..exc..

Your second option is try some font identifying software, and find that font.. here s one I found.. I'v never used it. .

Or you could attach a portion of one of those documents here, and we could see if anyones systems read that font.

...remember.. fonts are easy to download, once you know what you need.

When i press one key i get another(i press J i get I, etc etc), some work how they should, some don't. When i unplug the keyboard and plug it back in it fixed itself. Then it happened again. I press the NumLock and it fixed itself again. (usually just rebooting helps)
The keyboard is USB

Any ideas?

Answer:Keyboard symbol mix up

Have you checked your keyboard layout settings:
Click Start>Type intl.cpl in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
Click intl.cpl at the top and the Region and Language window opens.
Check the Format matches your country, date, time etc.
Click on Location Tab and check if current location is correct.

How to make sure that the selected layout matches the keyboard
1. Click Start, type osk in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
2. Match the keyboard on the screen with the physical keyboard to make sure that the layout matches.
3. To check the uppercase characters, click the shift key on the keyboard or on the screen, and match the characters printed on the keyboard.
