Colour change in Microsoft Solitaire Collection. Card all black and yellow. No Colour.

Question: Colour change in Microsoft Solitaire Collection. Card all black and yellow. No Colour.

Can anyone suggest a way to get the Microsoft Solitaire Collection colours back. Yesterday, all colour went and the cards just showed in yellow on a black ground. Asked Microsoft, but no help given. Am I the only person with this problem, or has someone
solved it?
Updated drivers for Nvidia Graphics card. Reset the Collection under 'Features' in Settings.
Nothing works yet. Any ideas, anybody?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm trying to find a way to change the default yellow colour (you can see what I mean here http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v220/jpboyrox/grottyyellow.jpg ) to white (or anything else). For some reason my computer seems to change the colour randomly and I really hate it. About 5 mins ago it was white but then after a reboot it changed back to this colour. Any thoughts? I doubt it's too hard to fix
 

Answer:Change default yellow colour

That image looks like your in classic mode. Go to display properties \ appearance \ color scheme and make the change there.

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

Answer:More colour options to change background colour

I personally like the black and white, but I saw a mockup of a dim tropical photo in place of the black and it looked quite beautiful.

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?

Actually its a bit more serious than that.

I replaced my motherboard and CPU and with the new system it would crash with an access violation in Run32.dll and the mouse would stop working (and an access violation in Kernel32.dll would often follow) if the colour depth was changed, either manually or by an application.
Changing colour depth immediately after starting Win98 would usually work, though.
Win2000 (dual boots both) was rock solid, so I wasn't too concerned.

Turning AGP 4x on was a big no-no. Instant crashes in any game except Unreal engine powered games.

This was about 6 months ago.
Recently it's been going downhill.
I noticed games would crash after only a short period, even under Win2000 (except for UT and kin).
Then it started crashing playing DVD movies. Disabling hardware acceleration in the DVD player fixed the problem. (this affects both Win98 & Win2000)

Then worse - viewing web pages caused crashes - but only in Win98. Flash animations caused instant crashes, but it also would lock up occasionally when viewing pics on a web page. Experiments have shown that viewing any format of picture through any software application at all will lead to a complete system lock-up sooner or later.
Win2000 still views web pages and pics without any probs.

Viewing AVI, MPEGs, etc is also a bad idea under Win98 - except for Quicktime for some odd reason.

In the top left and top right corners of my laptop screen there are faint yellow circles about half a cm in diameter, as if the yellow pixels are stuck on. They blend in with what ever is meant to be dispalyed. If I rub the screen they seem to move/fade for a moment then come back. They never use to be there and seem to be getting more prominent as time passes. Seen some messages about ghosting but don't think this is a similar issue as they are there constantly. Any suggestions? Thanks - Martyn Thinkpad Yoga, 8gb RAM, Digitiser HD Screen

I have found that the yellow pigment in my injet printing seems alway to be the first to fade. Posters I put up only a month ago have the black & blue pigments ok but the yellow has faded leaving the greens going to blue and the general pictures a bit of a disaster. Since the paper, ink & printer were quite expensive I'm a bit dissapointed & wondered what others had found. Its the light that seems to do the damage. Are there any yellow printing inks that do not fade - I have noticed this problem in several brand products. (I use HP just now).

Answer:Fade of injet colour yellow

Its not faded, it run out. So it just prints the colour that's left or Jets are blocked in the Print Head, have you done a test Print in the Printer Folder??? to see if its printing all the colours

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.

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
OM
 

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.

I just took apart my T410s to change the screen hinges. I thought all had gone well but when I plug in an external monitor the colours don't display properly. The display is yellow and if you wiggle the cable it goes green. Could this have been something I did? It worked fine before.Any ideas how to fix it?ThanksAndy

Answer:VGA external monitor shows yellow and green colour

Hi, arp1981
 
I have a question for clarification: Does this only occur on an external monitor, not the laptop's display itself? If so, then I would retrace your steps of replacing the hinges and make sure that all wires and devices are where they should be. Also, check the pins on the VGA cord and the VGA port itself and make sure nothing is bent.

Whilst I am chasing Microsoft for a refund, I don't expect them to be very obliging, irrespective of any consumer laws we have in this country, so the immediate problem I have is that I have also found in Adobe Lightroom 4 that all the existing images now have a yellow colour cast.

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.

Am I overlooking something in Win 8? To play Free Cell, I open the Microsoft Solitaire Collection. I'm presented a screen labeled "Add your Microsoft account". It has a box for email address - presumably a Microsoft email address - and password. I can accept or cancel. If I cancel, the game opens and I can play it. If I accept, I'm taken to the next screen "Let this app access your info?" I don't know what info it's referring to. The line below the title says "Microsoft Solitaire Collection" needs your permission to", and below that, it says "Access and update your Xbox LIVE info."

I did a restore from a clean Windows 8.1 backup. My PC was restored with Windows and updates and not much else. I had installed the Microsoft Solitaire collection and one or two other games from the store with my previous install.
So now, I go to get Solitaire from the store; it shows I own them, but when I install them, the message box tells me "my purchase can't be completed" and I see the cause is error 0x80070057.
So, this morning I go into event viewer because I like to take a peek at what's going on with a fresh install and I see the following:
"Crawl could not be completed on content source<winrt://S-1-5-21-651528630-1085324033-1791406189-1001}/>. Context:  Application, System Index Catalog. Details:The parameter is incorrect. (HRESULT : 0x80070057) (0x80070057)"

For the last one week I could not open Microsoft Solitaire Collection. Whenever I open the application, it says "There is problem downloading game data for Microsoft Solitaire Collection. FAQ at http://aka.ms/mssolitairefaq and refer to error code 101_107_1, When I tried to open Store application also, the message comes stating that "you are not connected to Internet". However my internet connection is OK, and is working nicely.

After I got rid of the System Restore error: (see System Restore fails: AppxStaging %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApp 0x80070091 - Page 26 - Windows 10 Forums), I am now getting another error (see screenshot).

It says:"Activation of app Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App failed with error: The application cannot be started. Try reinstalling the application to fix the problem. See the Microsoft-Windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information."

I have used Win 10 happily for a good while. A couple of hours ago, the initial screen on the MS solitaire collection locked up with no "X" available to terminate. Task manager did allow cancel. I browsed many entries in this forum, one said a re-boot fixed it for them. I tried it, and it worked.

"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"
Mostly trying to play the Pyramid Solitaire on the Daily Challenges - either early on of a bit later it will crash on me and display this message, but instead of saying windows 10 it says 8. This is the first time that I have experienced this problem and I haven't done any recent updates other than the normal Microsoft updates.

Answer:Unable to play Microsoft Solitaire Collection on Windows 10

I've been having the exact same problem. It's only started happening in the last month. Always happens in the Daily Challenge for Pyramid. Very frustrating. I've re-installed windows and reset to factory. Tried updating the display driver, and uninstalled and re-installed Solitaire. Nothing has worked.

Hi All:

I play the Microsoft Solitaire Collection challenge each day. This morning, the challenges would not load, and despite my resetting the App from "Apps and Features" in Windows 10 settings, the problem has persisted all day. Seems that the ads that load and play before each challenge, are not loading and preventing the challenges themselves.

Individual games, not challenge series', do load.

Anyone else have this issue?

Would like to inform the Webmaster, but don't have a contact.

Hello.

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

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

Oh but I'll use this instead

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

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

Alex Jordan

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

Heya, welcome to the forums


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

Here's the link

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

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

Cheers!

Answer:Screen colour to match magazine colour?

I found the easiest way to achieve this was to print the picture and then adjust my screen to match. Once you've adjusted the screen all future pictures which look too light or dark, on screen, can be adjusted to suit within your software.

Hello forum members, it's been awhile since I last posted anything. I've been busy testing and working with Windows 10. While the OS has improved I find that there are still numerous bugs to work out, even on the stable Anniversary Update build.

My problem today deals with one of the store apps, namely the Microsoft Solitaire Collection. The game was working fine for a long time, granted I only played it every so often, and then a few days ago I tried running it and it just closes and exits from the memory. Task manager shows that it does indeed crap out and close. If anyone knows why please inform me.

Now I figure it would be helpful to post some more detailed information about this issue. Yes I have googled the crap out of this problem before coming here. I chose to ask here because the Microsoft Answers site is a complete joke.

I think the problem started when I was trying to fix Cortana. Cortana I noticed no longer does web searches and the notebook settings tab is no longer there, so I tried to fix it. At one point I had her working again(not sure how I did it though) but then that's exactly when Solitaire stopped working correctly. I kept messing with the Windows Apps directory and the permissions on that folder because I am almost certain that the problem lies in access rights to the apps. Sadly my attempts to correct both of the issues resulted in the start menu and notifications center no longer flying out. So in that case I used system restore to take me back ab... Read more

Hello Britton,

In the worse case situation, you should be able to do a repair install to fix both apps without losing anything, and avoid a fresh install.

 I bought Lenovo B590 59390111 (window 8)  yesterday and was excited to have it. But i got shocked when i started using it , because the display is showing all white colours as Yellow, even the google home page is not white. This problem is similar to Y580 yellow display problem link. What is the solution for it??? Kindly help me...

Answer:lenovo B590 display yellow colour issue (Problem similar to Yoga 580)

hi kamalraj,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
I agree with what falcore51 have mentioned in the Y580 thread.
 
If the yellowish color on the screen persist if you boot the machine in Safe Mode or in the BIOS (by pressing F2 during boot-up) then there's most likely a problem with the LED display.
 
Alternatively, you can also try hooking-up an external monitor.
 - If the display is fine, the LCD panel is possibly defective
 - if the problem remains, the GPU is possibly defective.
 
You may try contacting the store (if it's still possible to exchange the unit) or you may contact Lenovo India to have the unit serviced.

Due to the recent issues I've had with my Yoga 2 Pro since the update to Windows 10, I updated all my laptop's drivers and software to the most recent versions provided on Lenovo's site. While this solved the majority of my issues with Windows 10, I've found that the yellow issue the laptops originally had returned with at least one of these updates. I'm assuming it's the BIOS update since that was what fixed in the first place. Did anyone else have the same problem? Anyone have a fix? Or am I just going to have to wait for another BIOS update? Thanks in advance.

Recently I had problem with my PC running windows 98 and now, since I have had it running again (at first in safe mode and now normally with a diagnosis start up,)it has been running with only 16 colours.I know how to change it in properties but whenever I turn it up to 250 colours it tells me to restart and after I do, it is still 16 colours. Is there any other ways to change the colour which actually could work?

You'll probably have to reinstall the video drivers and the monitor driver if Windows hasn't picked it up.

Answer:Change my desktop colour - help!!

In Control Panel, Personalization, you have two related settings: Desktop Background and Color. I use themes for the background so my desktop takes its color from a hue associated with whatever background is currently on display. The background color choices can be turned off for the various items you mention (Start menu, taskbar, action center, and also title bars). Do you need help with puzzling your way through this stuff? There may be tutorials on this ... goes off to look ... yes, there's a whole category called "Appearance & Personalization." You should probably root around in there and see what you can find. Here's something to get you going, though:

You can get here by clicking Settings, Personalization, or looking for Personalization in Control Panel.

Answer:Can I change the colour of my MSN screen

If you are talking about MSN Messenger, then the only option you have is to change the colour via the "Change your scene" window. I don't think MSN has anything fancy like scripting (if you are talking about CSS and that kind of stuff).

If you mean Windows Live Hotmail and you are using Firefox, then you might be able to use Stylish to add/modify custom CSS for that web page.
