Can't Bring Her Out of 'Stand By'

Question: Can't Bring Her Out of 'Stand By'

Thursday July 9, 2009

Hello again, MG's best people::-D

I am having trouble bringing my desktop PC out of 'Stand By'.
I rarely used this function, for several idiosyncratic reasons, but now I'd like to be able to do it. Unfortunately, the PC has other ideas about this decision.:confused

It seems like a hardware problem, so I stuck this post in here; but it may be an OS issue and belongs under 'Software'....

I go to Start > Turn Off Computer > and then hit the 'Stand By' button. The PC and monitor shut down like it is really turned off, except the little blue light behind the button (where you boot-up the machine) is 'on'. The machine does not purr or make much noise. That's what I thought it was supposed to do.....

Okay. So now, when I jiggle the mouse, or hit 'enter' or hit the space bar, I am waiting for the PC to come back on, which it seems to be trying to do. The machine starts to purr a little, but there is no great humming and the monitor stays black. I can't get it up and running, or even out of this state that I am now cornered in.:cry

The only way to go at this point is to press that button that normally boots up the rig, and has a little blue light on behind it, and hold it down until the machine manually shuts down. Then I gotta re-boot it back up again.

Is this something someone knows how to fix in a simple way ?? I'm no experienced officer, so the 'fix' has to be pretty easy and understandable by a rank amateur like me.:wave

Any help would, of course, be humongously appreciated,

Preferred Solution: Can't Bring Her Out of 'Stand By'

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.)

Hi I hope someone can help. I am using XP pro updated with service pack 2 on three different computers, two of which are set to shut down when the sleep button is pressed, but I can not set the third to do the same. Under advanced power options it does not have the 'when I press the power button on my computer' and 'when I press the sleep button on my computer' options. On the power schemes the system stand-by option is missing. It has an option to enable APM where as the other two computers, which are older do not. It does have the hibernate option. It did used to have the stand-by button when I first put XP pro on,since then I have re-formatted the HD and installed XP pro again and now no stand-by. I have changed no hardware or added any drivers since the original installation. Under the computer device manager the computer does come up as 'standard' whereas the others comeup as 'ACPI uniprocessor PC'. If it is some setting in the bios could someone talk me through it idiot proof!!! Thanks

I have a T500 laptop which I have installed a fresh copy of Windows XP professional on. All drivers are loaded and when the laptop is left idle, it will go in stand by mode with no problems. After I wake the laptop back up and log back in, the next time the laptop goes into stand by mode it will just hang on the screen "Preparing to Stand by". Eventually (after 30 minutes or so) it will go to stand by, but I have no idea why it is doing this. I have 4 other T500 laptops that I have installed XP on and they all do the same exact thing when entering standby mode for the second time in a session. I've unistalled all applications I've had on the laptops, I've updated all of the hardware drivers, I've updated the BIOS with the latest release. I've installed and uninstalled Lenovo's power manager, and I've tried various power settings. Hibernation mode is turned off (it does the same thing whether it's on or off). Now, these machines shipped with Vista and there are no problems with that...only when XP is installed...reverting back to Vista is not an option. I would very much appreciate ANY suggestions for this problem as it is taking up way too much time to solve and it's driving me crazy! Thanks in advance!!!

Answer:T500 will go in Stand By mode once, but it will hang if it goes on Stand By mode a second time

Yes, I have a T500 with the same problem.  However, the laptop is about 8-months old and always had XP-Pro installed.  The "second standby" problem has only developed in the last 8-weeks.  Prior to that, there was no problem.  I am at a loss too as why it cannot complete a second "standby"..

I bought a glow-in-the-dark keyboard a few weeks ago. The paper they referred to as an owner's manual said to delete the previous keyboard drivers to avoid conflict. I was wary of doing that, and I also did not know how to do it. I was expecting a simple plug n play, but of course nothing is simple with this stuff. When I first tried to use the new board, Windows would freeze up, but I kept at it till I found a way to make it work. I've been leaving the little cd that came with the new keyboard in the drive. When I power on it says 'no keyboard' found. Then I reload the drivers for the new keyboard, the computer reboots itself, and it's been working for quite a while that way. I know it isn't the proper way, but it's been working so I've put up with having to reload the new drivers every day. Today Windows started freezing up again even after I reloaded the new drivers when it gets to the place where I select which user name to use. That's the way it was doing before I found a way around it. I think it must all have begun when there was some sort of fatal error in Windows this morning. I looked at the screen just as an error box faded away and XP started shutting itself down. I didn't see the error message. So I'm writing to ask how do I remove the drivers for this old keyboard, and after that is done, and I reload the new drivers again, will the reloaded drivers be permanent? Thank you.

Which leads me to ask, can we just all focus and together, come to a conclusion concerning a very nice security setup, that would be lite and very secure.

Lets pick one of each below (these are just examples, but you catch my drift right)...

Question: Bring back pop up

The original issue for one of my users was she was getting a message on a certain webpage that said "To display this webpage correctly you need to download and install the following components: Java Virtual Machine"

The options on this box were to download or cancel. When you hit download, it would take you out to the java site in a different window and it would load the original screen one button at a time as you kept hitting download. Now I think I know how to fix this, but one of our level 1 techs decided to check the box that said 'Never download any of these components'. So now it appears this webpage doesn't want to downlod java components anymore.

Does anyone know how to get this pop up back after he checked that box? I feel like I've tried everything in the security settings and the advanced tab. She's got IE6SP1 on a 2000 machine.

Also to note: I actually reverted back to IE5.5 and the webpage worked fine, but when I upgraded to IE6SP1 again it gave us the same screen with red x's all over the place. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have an older computer that I use. I cleaned out alot of viruses from the computer but I am having problems bringing up web pages now. I cannot get any web pages up. I have rebuilt my network and also updated internet explorer. I have gone to dos and can ping websites using their IP address but cannot find host when I use their domain name. I have a valid IP address. I have also reset all of the internet settings to default. This one has got me frustrated. It says on IE that cannot find page or dns error. I may also get an error message that it cannot open the search engine to find the address. It seems to me like a DNS problem but I cannot figure out how to approach this one anymore. Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:cannot bring up a web page.

I found the answer going thru the web at this website
doing what they said did not exactly fix the problem but, at the end I looked thru those reg files were reinstalled I found that the settings were not correct. I compared those reg files to anouther computer I have also running windows 98 and found some big differences. Adjusted the settings to be the same and it logged right into web just perfect. Thanks to all the people that did look anyways.

Hi there

This "update in place" mechanism is a PAIN if it fails during the process -- this means you actually have to restore the previous image of your OS (if you have one), remedy the error and start again.

Mine failed because I was nearly out of HDD space for the OS so it ran out of space. OK I restored the OS from an image, used GPARTED to increase the partition size and then OK started again. OK this time.

Now in the "REAL WORLD" there will be many people who could be rendered with an inoperative computer if the update in place fails and there isn't an automatic roll back or the roll back fails. Some people (probably MOST who aren't on these forums) STILL don't take regular reliable backups !!! - Idiotic I know but true. !!

Having an ISO would eliminate a lot of this - just wipe your HDD and install clean -- what's wrong with that idea.

(I know currently there are some get around's on this (Kari's tutorial for example) but the average user won't do that of course).cre

The update in place is a DOG on VM's too - probably worse than on a REAL machine - especially if you run out of HDD (Virtual) disk space for the OS. You need to backup the image of the VM, Create a NEW VM and then restore it !!. You can't just image the OS or copy the Virtual Disk files.


Answer:Ms PLEASE bring back ISO's again

Good idea to have the option of this to download it

The only problem is would this work ok for the average user, I cant see many wanting to download an ISO, clean install and then install/setup all their apps again

IMO, the in place upgrades/updates as they are now are best for the average user, for more technical the ISO could be offered

Hi all. I have ThinkPad T520, and I wanted a USB 3.0 port. I found out that there is a dock station 4338-35 which has one. I was naive enough to believe that the docking station has its own USB 3.0 controller, so I've bought it. So yep, now I have lots of USB 2.0 ports, and no USB 3.0 port, because my laptop doesn't have USB 3.0 controller. Awful sad. How naive. Let me be a bit more naive and ask: is it possible to upgrade T520 somehow, and get USB 3.0 controller on it? Or, is USB controller built into the chipset so it's not possible? Thanks.

You should be able to do it by just opening two windows in IE.

But, I would like to recommend getting firefox from, that program allows for tabbed browsing which will allow you to have multiple sites open in the same window.

My hd was replaced, so instead of using the xp setup cd (actually I only have a hp recovery cd no ms xp setup cd)Anyway I have a saved image of my xp os with all the customized desktop and applications on it.I did a restore using Image for Dos after creating a partition and formating it with diskpart and format.Now it says when I boot "reboot and select proper boot device"I can get past this with the xp boot diskette I got from microsoft and the system boots fine.I know that since I did not do the setup with the new hd that there is no MBR to point to the boot partition.Microsoft has no hits when I search with the indications.Any hints?

I am working on this computer and he has McAfee, ThreatFire, ParetoLogic and Speedy PC. We were having trouble with going to windows live, but your website helped with that, but I still can't load McAfee. It shows up running in the task mgr., but when I click on the icon it acts like it is going to come up, but doesn't. Down on the right side of the taskbar where the active programs are there is the McAfee symbol. When I right or left click nothing happens. He is running Vista Home Basic on his Acer. I downloaded Prevx and Malwarebytes had found malware and removed it. Paid some guy online $35.00 to help me fix problems, but he knew about as much as me and did a system restore and removed the above Prevx & Malwarebytes. I have tried disabiling the UAC and other stuff, but to no avail. I have spent 2 days on this and I am getting really frustrated. This computer is in Spanish which I can read some and the keyboard is also. I keep changing the language and it keeps changing back. I have a feeling that the McAfee has expired, but it still shoud come up. Oh yeah, the security center shows that there is no anti-virus software installed.One more thing...The ThreatFire has 2 screens that come is a map and the other is about security and I can't close the windows unless I reboot. Also, I am having a hard time being able to read the letter verification.Thanks for any help you all can give me!

Answer:Can't bring up McAfee

McAfee and ThreatFire are both anti-virus programs and shouldn't be installed and running at the same time.

Those other cleaner/booster/optimizer/tuneup programs are basically useless and will do little to nothing to improve speed or performance. What they can do is break programs and damage the operating system.

Currently living/working in our RV while we are looking for a new home. Most RV parks have WiFi which works for my purpose IF I am outside. Once I step into the RV it is like stepping into a Faraday cage, i.e., the signal strength drops to almost useless levels.

What I'd like to be able to do is grab the signal (maybe a Ubiquiti?), get the park's IP address. Feed that into a existing WRT54G (as if it was connected to the WAN) via CAT-5 cable which would then be my "inside" WiFi. I know I don't want a repeater because I will lose bandwidth. Looks like I want to do a bridge (client?) but am not sure what to get for the initial signal grab.

I'm traveling to Peru, which I hear that there is a lot of theft. Of course, there's theft in many places including where I live. I have two cameras.. canon 350D, and the sd700 is. Taking a poll from camera lovers who have traveled a bit..would you bring both cameras?
I'm am bringing the sd700, but debating about the 350D even though I LOVE the pictures. Not sure I want to lug it around... just out of curiousity and fun which one would you bring, or both??...

Answer:Which cameras would you bring?

take the one that is easiest to use. leave the other home. no sense in carrying excess baggage. with airport security the way it is. the less you carry, the better off you will be. have a safe trip.

As of late, my AD-AWARE and SPYBOT scans have been relatively clean. Then... this morning, for the first time in several weeks I fired up AIM and when I did a scan late tonite it found all kinds of stuff, Wupdater, Newnet among others.

Is AIM the likely culprit of these programs? I use OPERA as my browser and since making the switch to it have had hardly any spyware. AIM seems to open up IE for any of it's updates, games etc.... I was just curious about AIM contributing to this new spyware I found on my system.



Answer:Does AIM bring in the SPYWARE?

Hmm, think I read something about the New version of AIM carrying spyware... I'll try to find the thread.

"In an instant message chat, Microsoft has told the Windows Featured Communities that the demand for Windows Vista Beta 2 has been overwhelming. It is, in fact, the largest downloaded software in history. Currently, they are serving product keys out ten times faster then the downloads can be served. In fact, they are pumping out bits as fast as they can - any faster and there would be a measurable impact on the internet. In fact, I quote a Microsoft representive:

"So, we are literally saying that if we increased our bandwidth any further there's a possibilty of taking down the Internet - people might have problems with World Cup viewing, etc"

People who have recieved Vista Beta 2 product keys, but are unable to download, may need to wait a few days, up to one week. Microsoft encoruages users who want to try out Windows Vista Beta 2 to order the DVD. When they recieve the DVD in 1-4 weeks, install it, and activate it, they will be automattically guaranteed an RC1 upgrade."

this info was taken from

i was wondering hwo this would happen how couls so many people DL vista and MS expanding there bandwidth "bring down the internet"??

Answer:bring down the internet?

the only way i could see it is there basicaly being a traffic jam, i'm willing to bet they're sending one out to every single backbone carrier, ISP, everything, they're uploading to the net as fast as they can, and probably every router within so many hops has seen vista go thru so many times, its all hogging up bandwidth more than they've seen before. Basically all the routers and ISPs that are shoving this out is causing everyone else's traffic, mainly the vista downloaders and probably microsoft web site browsers are experiencing it the most, but since vista is taking up so much bandwidth its causing everyone else's internet to be slow. I actualy havent noticed much a difference, mines always slow, **PUKE FOR DIALUP**

Here is my list so far. I plan on playing Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim and Arma2 including some retro emulators such as Project64. I want this rig to be less then 600usd and was wondering if there was anything you guys thought would be better to change. I have an optical drive I can take from my current dell and I think we have Windows somewhere in a flash drive. Do I need windows 7 to play these games or just Steam? I dont need a monitor or keyboard or mouse. I have a Samsung 32in TV that I use as a monitor.

Cooling Fan:
Video Card:
Power Supply:

Right now it seems like this will come to over 600usd. I wanted a good processor and video card so that games wont lag and will be a good fps. I will likely play at the medium setting mostly, but may use high as well for games like skyrim. My dad knows computers moderately well and could help me with installing everything correctly.​

Answer:How can I bring the cost of this rig to under $600

I've just added everything to my shopping cart, including the Hyper 212 which was only $5 more at Newegg. It looks to be a total cost of $620 for everything listed. I did notice one thing, AMD recommends a 500W PSU with the HD 7850, the list has a 450W PSU chosen. Other than the 250GB drive, everything else looks good to me. I personally wouldn't spend $60 on a 250GB HDD. For $25 more you could have 4 times the capacity. I know you are looking to save a buck or two but sometimes shortcuts have too high a cost.

HI All, My latest problem started with a desire to install the software for my Agfa ephoto Cl 18 digital camera. We could not get the computer to suck the images out of the camera via the USB cable. Agfa spent a lot of time with us on the telephone and the last resort was 3 pages of instructions to uninstall everything to do with the camera and then reinstall. We did all That but the camera still did not work so Agfa said they would give us a new one. Meanwhile I bought a printer but could not get that to work either so I took it to a technician who found there was a virus affecting the USB and eliminated it and now the printer works. So I thought well maybe the camera works too, though I had taken the camera to a camera to a camera shop and their computer could not get any pictures from the camera. Still I went through Agfa's uninstall thing again and this time when I got to the part where we start installing the software cleanly, the instructions tell me to press CTRL, ALT, and DELETE keys at the same time this should bring up a Close Program box, well it did and I closed one program of the several they want me to close [ they want me to close all operations untill only Explorer and Systray are showing] but after I closed the first application I could not get back to close the rest and that is where I'm at. Thank you in advance. Schnaz

IOS -- Only one OEM, Apple himself. So out of the question here.
Android -- All the OEMs deciding to go with android can provide some kind of differentiation by customizing the experience.
For instance: Samsung -- Curved screen, added functionality of some kind.
LG V10 -- Small secondary ticker screen.
I'm not talking about the how useful it is or if the device is unstable. Its about provisioning the capabilities.
Will other OEMs have same benefit while coming to Android. What differentiation will each WindowsPhone carry among OEMs?

Answer:What benefit other can OEM bring to WindowsPhone?

The differentiation amongst Android OEMs is more software than hardware related. Yes, there are different designs. However, most of the differences are in the custom skins and launchers that the OEMs add to their devices. I believe that there would be far less Android OEMs and far less Android devices if stock Android was all that could be run.
I don't feel that there is much differentiation available to OEMs manufacturing Windows Phones, due to the closed nature of the OS.

windows forum my question is so how do we use snapchat if u remove both official and 3rd party apps atleast give a substititute or bring back official snapchat or i m changing my phone back to andriod
i want to use snapchat
since 6snap and snapchat bot are unavailable it makes me think and probabally some other that why not go back to andriod or ios give a substitute for snap chat

Answer:bring snapchat/6snap

First... This is a fan based News and Discussion site comprised of users such as yourself. It is not in any way run by Microsoft, Lumia or any developer.
Second... Only SnapChat can authorize a third party service to access SnapChat. Recently there was a security breach where one of these third party Apps on iOS or Android saw the developer intercept all the pictures sent via their App and then they reposted all the "juicy" ones on the open web. This caused SnapChat to cancel access to their service by ANY third party App on ANY platform. This decision rests solely with SnapChat and no other agency.
Third... Only SnapChat can create or sanction an official App for the Windows Phone platform. They have steadfastly declined to do so and there have been public comments by SnapChat co-founder Evan Spiegel that indicate he would rather pretend that Windows Phone does not exist. Asking anyone but SnapChat to allow your phone access to the SnapChat service is futile at best. SnapChat recently removed from their site any method of asking for added support for devices left out of their service. They quite pointedly do not want to hear from any more Windows Phone users about the situation.
Fourth... There are already way too many threads regarding this topic on the forum here, other forums, Blogs, social media accounts, etc. Your desperate, threatening voice is but a drop in the ocean. SnapChat is not listening to you and does not care about you. Those who hear you and would like to he... Read more

Alright, I don't know where to ask this so I'm coming to you all. Feel free to point me elsewhere.

I have a task, there are Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, one for each day of the year going back into 2005. Each workbook has one worksheet in it with between 200 and 1000 lines. Each line represents one transaction. One or my coworkers goes through each day and marks whether the transaction is valid or not, if it is not it may be marked as fix or no. So three possible outcomes.

My task is to summarize all the sheets into one. The simple solution to me is a countif type function. For some reason the new spreadsheet does not update, once I save it, where I had the correct numbers, I now have errors. When I close and go back in and update, still errors. I am assuming this is because the files are all out on a network drive.

So, the countif solution appears to be out. My next option I was considering was importing the sheets to an Access database, then I could manipulate, query and report from there. However, I don't want to import each SS individually. I can't think of a way to write a macro for it.

I'm sure people do this kind of thing all the time, there has to be a better, less time intensive option. Suggestions?

Answer:Bring together tons of spreadsheets?

what type of permissions do you have for this network drive?

Having XP run smooothly on your machine, basically depends on two things:- Processor speed- Amount of RAM memoryYou didn't post your processor speed so I can't tell you about that, but 63Mb is not enough for XP.Upgrade to at least 256Mb.About your CD Rom. You can buy any CD Rom with an IDE connector out there.If it says that it works with Vista, than for sure it'll work with ME.But make sure that the one you buy is an IDE drive and not a SATA drive!!

Funny, a similar situation happened to me.

when you press control+alt+delete does nothing happen? and when you type taskmgr in start>> run does it give you a message like this program is already in use by another program?

Ok if you havent already download ad-aware or spybot search and destroy.

Scan with them in normal mode, then boot in safe mode by reboot and repeatedly tapping f8 then pressing safe mode.

Scan inside safe mode, with norton and ad-aware

Because you didnt allow it to acess the internet it couldnt download the rest of the virus to your computer so chances are it only placed variants in your startup and in your system restore. Ad-aware and norton should take care of those.

I hook everything up right and it boots normally until the post screen then it says unkown cpu. I check my bios and my cpu is running at 100x6 or 600mhz and my memory is running at 400 (which is right). So I change it to 200x9 which this should easily be capable of... then it doesn't boot.

I bought some rounded cables from xoxide.. they should be here soon and that should help alot. Mostly it's the power issue. I don't have enough 4pin plugs... I have 7 case fans right now (mut-ified or mixed brands). I just purchased 7 new ones but will only be using 6 for the case, the other one is for the psu. I got a fan controller and that is just screwing me all up with the wiring. I really need some help because I have been trying to get that thing to work for 5 hours straight and I am going insane. ... Read more

Answer:Christmas Can Also Bring Problems...

In regards to your SATA hard drive, did you remember to install the correct drivers for your motherboard? Your motherboard should have come with a floppy disk with the appropriate drivers, and you have to watch the setup closely for an option to press F6 (I think) in order to install mass storage drivers. The pop in the floppy and it should work out all right.

I can't help you out with the fan wiring, just follow the manual, but I really don't think it could be that difficult...

For about 2 weeks I have been unable to bring up three sites. (possible more)

I have cleared out my temp and my history.

I have run Spybot and adware and even Hijackthis all are clean except for the normal one or two "leeches" which I've carefully taken care of.
I even reinstalled my IE 6 and updated.

Someone told me that there may be something that connects the three sites...something called a "hover" feature, or maybe somethingelse.

I know some HTML coding but Java is a mystery to me.

My PC is Windows ME.

My IE is IE 6. (I've tried using Netscape as well with no luck)

Server is Earthlink DSL.

The links I use are : (The page cannot be displayed) (The page cannot be displayed) (the page cannot be displayed)

I've also tried "backdoor" links that would get me directly to the CVHS parkdays page for example, still nothing.

One more odd thing is that I have two PCs networked through a Linksys wireless router and the second PC won't bring up these sites either.

Now three weeks ago these pages came up fine and I've don't nothing to the system to warrent this sudden disappearance, at least nothing I can think of.

Can anyone lend some help?

Thank you,

Answer:trouble bring up some sites...

check your router. most routers have a filtering system. and the fact that both pcs on the network have the same issue makes me think of this.

i have had some wierd things like this happen to a router of mine once. it started running a service and block serveral sites. i had to reset it to make them go away.

thats were i would start first.

This is a Ricoh laser printer using an RPCS (Ricoh) driver on an XPpro computer. The spooler in on a separate patition. It used to be that when I click on PRINT, the dialog box would come up pretty quickly. But lately it takes almost a minute to bring the dialog box to the screen. The spool time is normal depending on what I print.
It is a parallel connection.
I have 6 drivers installed, 1 local (this one,) 3 network + a pdf + a win fax.
What do you think may be the problem with the slow load time?

Answer:slow to bring up printer box

When clicking on a message in Outlook Express for further details, it starts Internet Explorer. I know that OE is tied in with IE. Is there any way in which OE can be made to start Mozilla Firefox and not IE? I like Firefox because it is so easy to change the size of displayed text.

Answer:Can OE messages bring up mozilla?

should work if you set Firefox as your default browser.In Firefox select Tools from the top of the screen then Options/General and check now in the default browser box.Alternatively use Start/control panel/add remove programs/set programs access and defaults/custom/tick current browser. You need to have Firefox open first though.

Alright here's my situation. I have an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ S939. It ran 55ish under full load with the stock fan. So, I went and ordered high end thermal paste, and an ACFP 64, installed it, and flipped some of my case fans to make it more efficiant at moving air. I have two fans at the front and bottom on intake, and I have one on the side and one on the top as exhaust. I'm still getting upper 40s under full load. I'm not overclocking or anything. Any ideas?

That's very good considering your CPU... I wouldn't think you would need to go lower... unless your trying to OC like MAD... then you could always H2O it...

Hi there,

Many times when I am clicking a link, or less often, hitting enter after typing in an address into Firefox, I get a Google search with fragments of the address that I've typed in. For example, if I go to the recent sites dropdown, and click Firefox, I may end up at Google with a search for "" in the box.

I imagine it's some sort of timeout issue or settings in my network card that need to be changed. Maybe it's a Firefox setting that I tweaked a long time ago. I am pretty sure I have seen it happen with IE as well, though. I also thought for a while that it was caused by a slow connection, because when I was downloading files it seemed to happen more often. But of my 6mbps download speed, they may be taking 500kb-1mb at most. So that seemed improbable.

I have searched for the answer and have yet to come across someone with the same problem.

OK, this may seem like a random request...

I want to make it so that I get a message box pop up when I start up the computer. I'm currently working through learning the kanji (Japanese characters), and I want to get it to pop up a message saying what % through the book I am.

I have relatively few programming skills ... is there a way to do this easily? Or will it be a case of needing to code something in C, which is still beyond me on Windows. (I'm on Vista at the moment.) I need to be able to change what the message is easily enough when I work out I've gone up a %.
Is there an easy-ish way to do this?

Thanks very much.

Answer:Bring up a message on Startup

Since nobody has replied,, I bet it's almost impossible for people to come up with that given that the software you are using is uncommon. We don't even know what software here. Stuff like that, unless it's already built into your program, is usually done for very popular softwares and for functions that a lot of people wish to have or report that they do not work the way they should.

Hi there

I have to agree with other posters who say the current W10 search is an absolute DOG - also the fact that I can hardly read the start menu (text size for me too small and I've found no way so far of being able to increase the size of the start menu itself - other items OK though) makes it doubly useless.

For some W7 users who never used W8 here's what it looks like.

(Note I'm on a Linux Host so this is shown on a W8.1 VM in Unity mode on a Linux desktop) - but on a Windows desktop the search panel is identical. The dropdown gives you files, settings or everywhere and it works decently. The whole point of a search is that it should be easy to enter your query and the GUI should be clean and uncluttered.


Answer:Ms please bring back W8 search !!!

That would be nice to have as an option at least.
