Preferred Solution: Custom colour - what irony...!

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.)

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.

Anyone here who messes with Windows XP display themes, I've changed my theme but the taskbar blinking colour (when a window is trying to steal focus or msn messenger) is so close to the regular colour that it's really hard to see it when you're not watching for it. Does anyone know how to change this colour?

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is out as of today. I prepaid for it, and even bought a 20in WS LCD to replace my POS 19in 25ms LCD for the game.


Late last night, my PC died. Thats right, dead. I walked into the room to find it stuck on a stop error. So I rebooted. Stop error again. So I booted to Safe Mode. Stop error. I booted to a WinPE CD. Stop error. I ran memtest from a CD. A few hours later, I had accumulated a good oh...5 million some odd errors.


So I shut off the PC, and removed a stick of Ram. Turn the machine on and what do I see?


BIOS Checksum Bad. Starting Recovery...

So I put in the Asus CD, and it automatically reflashes the BIOS. Reboot. Same problem.

So I try the other ram stick. Not even a video response. Same in all slots. I tried other ram. Once again, nothing but the fans fired up.

So here I sit today, pondering just how cool Oblivion is, knowing I can't play it for at least two weeks while my RMAs(for the mb and ram) are being processed.

I hate computers.

Hello!

OS: Vista home basic (have tried twice to download Service Pack 1 and both times it has gone through the whole rigmarole and then FAILED. Ugh.). Chrome browser.

I moved out of NYC to the boondocks. So, I am on dialup at home, and borrow WiFi at McDonald's & wherever else I can get it.

Was on WiFi last week and spending too much time "Resolving Host." Everything started with the long "resolving host" wait times.

Checked Chrome Extensions and found that three misspelled versions of something similar to "download keeper" had inserted extensions onto my Chrome (looking like "DoWnLoAd keeepEUR" or something like that, three different variations--since deleted). Also, an IP had been inserted in my hosts file, also immediately deleted.

Deleting those weird Extensions and cleaning up the Hosts file helped, but not entirely. So I read about disabling IPv6, and inserted FFFFFFFF into the appropriate place in the registry, which did not speed up my connection at all: still "resolving host" problems and unusually slow (now on dialup this week, and yes, dialup is slow, but, not like this).

So, yesterday connected to WiFi at the local library to go through the malware removal process recommended by majorgeeks (did it once before on this PC in 2010, and on a previous machine in 2006), and a few things were found yesterday--but I had to re-create my dial-up connection today after booting up the PC again--and ...

It's not really a problem, but here goes anyway.

I've spent the past couple days here trying to help people with various problems. Turns out, most of those problems were power-related. PS quits, or symptoms of a bad PS, or ways to diagnose. You name it, it usually circled around power supplies.

About 8PM tonight (EST) my power supply quit on me.

After about a half hour solid of laughing at the irony of the situation, I found out the 3.3v supply lines were deceased, but the 5v and 12v were fine.

I have an old AT-style chassis that's loaded with drive bays, and no PS. And somewhere in my garage, I have a dusty old PCI backplane board from an older Dell machine. (I saved it because I had noticed that the expansion slots were wired straight-through without interruption, making it usable for expanding expansion. heh)

I'm gonna use that board, the old chassis, and this defunct power supply unit to build a massive expansion chassis and drive housing system.

Now that I think of it, there is a teensy little problem there. How do you turn on an ATX power supply in one chassis by throwing the power switch on the main computer? Any gizmo tinkerers out there have any ideas on this?
 

Answer:Solved: Oh! The irony! LOL (power problem)

You can jump start an ATX powersupply by shorting a pair of the wires in the 20pin plug, there are guides on the web on how to do this, Google for "jump start atx powersupply".

I never run antivirus at home...I run antivirus at work.

My work computer is the one that got hit today and I have no idea how. I did not go to any websites other than Microsoft to get another Win7 key. Every thing was fine this morning until I stepped away for 20 minutes. I come back and my computer is FUBARED.

Go to google.com, do a search. Every time I click on link that starts with "go.google.com", I get redirected to something like 64.117.xx.xxx, I forgot the full address.

If I try to run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, the apps start and then crash immediately. Likewise, I can not go to either website, I get forwarded to some fake anti spyware software site.

Absolutely nothing in my running services, hosts file was untampered, nothing in startup...I couldn't find what the deal was at all.

Searches for people with my problem came up with nothing useful that would help me resolve the issue. So, I had to back up my files and reinstall Windows(installed Win7 this time).

What baffles me is how I got this and that there is little to no information on people experiencing the same issues. My computer was 100% up to date, antivirus was up to date, and I had not gone to any website different than normal, hell I wasn't even at my computer(which was locked when im afk).

BTW: I'm using the most up to date version of Firefox, I thought it was impervious

Had the same issue at work to. Apparnetly its a driver that redirects most search engines to the go subdomain. Go to your device manager, show hidden devices, and check under Non-Plug and Play Drivers for any driver that has a .sys on the end. Think it starts with Q or V. Disable, not uninstall, the driver. Once its disabled, restart, then uninstall it.

Once its gone, try installing Malwarebyte's Anti-Spyware in safe mode. Try running it in safe mode too. Most of the rogue files that it removes that come with this driver are in the System32 directory.

Hello in There All,
What is about to be described is a grotesque irony; please bear with me.
The system is WinXP Pro SP3 build 2600-install disc is WinXP Pro SP1 version 2002.
Was simply setting up network connection thru network connections/wizard; prompted to reboot for changes to take effect, rebooted, and unholy Beelzebub, the system arbitrarily and independently created a boot password screen with my username and a password from another world, unbeknownst to and not initiated by me. Good Grief! Well, attempted 3rd party utilities (0PHCrack, OFFLINE NT Password/Registry)to no avail. At password screen, it will not recognize CTRL+ALT+DEL(2).There is no hidden administrator selection. Can access DOS thru install disc repair feature, but it does not support CMD (not in 'help' list). Cannot even enter Safe Mode because the password screen is there first. Was suggested I try Ubuntu, Mint, (not familiar with, and have not yet tried them). Grotesque insult to ironic injury, nobody will help me because TSL rules expressly forbid password breach assistance (and I do understand the malevolent potential), but this IS my distressed conundrum. The system did NOT ask, advise, nor inform me of what it did until it was done. Now Bill's boondoggle is my nightmare; locked out of my own machine, clueless. What in the universe is one to do? If there is a Mighty Tech somewhere with the solution, there is nothing I would not do to express my supreme gratitude. 9 1 1 to the Tech World. Ple... Read more

After watching my laptop update for nearly 20 minutes, sitting at 100% I had to force the power off and reboot the system. Now it is re-running through the update process. The supposed auto updates are to make the OS safer, but I think forcefully shutting off the power to use your PC mid update is more likely to cause problems to your OS install than any supposed security hole. The long load times force many users to force the system off mid update due to the updater choosing its own schedule, which tends to be in the most inconvenient times. I merely wanted to use the SD card on my laptop, a 30 second task. Not wait 20+ minutes for an unexpected update that would hang at 100%.

I can imagine for the typical user who needs to use their PC in a hurry or turn off their PC in a hurry as they have to leave/conserve batter life forcefully powering off their OS will cause more instability in the long run.

My options are to buy Win 10 Pro for my laptop and likely reinstall the OS, which I do not care to do. Or buy an SD card reader for my desktop. I think the SD card reader will be cheaper/more handy.

Considering most laptops don't come with Win 10 Pro, it makes going Apple a much more real possibility for me laptop wise in the future. It is not like I can customize or built my laptop anyways. I can only imagine the typical laptop user being even more frustrated than I am due to the extremely inconvenient updater with a low reliability rate.

My short rant is over.

Here?s a lovely bit of irony for you: Adblock Plus, which is by far the most popular add-on for Firefox and Chrome, is actually increasing the amount of memory used by your web browser, rather than decreasing it. Furthermore, ABP also increases the amount of time (and CPU cycles) required to render a website. Instead of making web surfing more responsive, ABP actually makes your surfing experience slower.

This might seem counterintuitive at first ? after all, ABP blocks all of those annoying animated Flash ads from loading, and so it should save you from unnecessary memory and CPU hits. Unfortunately, the actual situation is a lot more complex than that. Basically, ABP has grown too big for its own good, and just the very process of running ABP in your web browser consumes more memory and CPU cycles than it saves.
How Adblock Plus works

To begin with, according to Mozilla developer Nicholas Nethercote, there is a 60-70MB memory hit having Adblock Plus run in the background on Firefox. The main problem, though, is the process by which ABP actually blocks ads. Basically, ABP inserts a massive CSS stylesheet ? occupying around 4MB of RAM ? into every single webpage that you visit, stripping out the ads. This wouldn?t be a problem if we were still in the ?90s or early ?00s, but nowadays it is very common for a webpage to have lots of iframes, which are separate, individual webpages that are loaded and embedded within the page you?re currently looking at.

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

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.

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.

Frequently, not always, my up-to-date copy of Google Chrome fails to load Google Search. Particularly if I use the search/address bar, but even if I enter google.com. Other google sites load. In fact, when this happens, I just use the search web box in Gmail. Other sites have no problem loading and the computer is running fine.

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:

I like using "windguru" for forecasting the weather. Based in the Czech Republic, they're usually spot on which is more than I can say for the local effort.

Until recently I used Netscape 7.2 and subsequent to that Opera vers 11. These both colour coded the wind speeds and gusts and the expected temperatures; you know ranging from blue for cold to red for hot. For various reasons I have had to make use of IE-8. I can't get anything in colour. Temperatures and wind speeds are just black numerals on a white background. I've searched through IE's options but can't find any tweak to resolve this. The URL is www.windguru.cz and I'm running XP home. Can anyone help?

Thanks

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)

This is my brother's computer, so I don't know a lot about it - programs and so on - he's un-contactable at the moment and will be for a couple of months... I'd greatly appreciate any he... Read more

Answer:4 bit colour - why?

to connect to the internet in safe mode you have to select safe mode with networking

But sorry thats all I can offer at the moment

Hi There,

I have a dell inspiron 6000 with mobile intel chipset 9145. I am trying to play TV out, but whenever i attach it to the TV - i am only getting black and white. I have tried changing the colour adminstration within properties to kodakdc and srgb colour space profile but i am still having the same problems.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks
 

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!

I got brand new printer gave m e but no one could find driver disk so i downloaded it but my printer just prints lines of non sense and in all different colours but wont print it wont print a word pad doc and wont print from dos either plz help very confuzed beginner
 

Answer:Epson colour 440

Sounds like you downloaded the wrong driver.

On their Windows driver page (assuming you're using Windows) there are several options.

If you're using WinXP, the only WinXP applicable file listed is actually a Monitor utility, but it does not state that it includes the driver (never safe to assume anything).

But if you are using WinXP, it already has many printer drivers included.

Try this:

Right-click My Computer
Select Manage option
Select Device Manager
In right pane, expand [+] Printers
Select your new printer
Uninstall the printer
Reboot your system and see if WinXP automatically loads the driver
This means WinXP already had the correct driver.

If this does not work... Is your printer "new" to you (used from someone else)?

If it is actually store-bought new, it should still be under warranty. Go through the store or Epson and get the CD you are missing.

For a while now ive noticed that my games don't appear to be running in 32 bit colour mode. I notice in particular when a texture uses a range of shades from a single colour (e.g. dark blue to light blue), where you can see a 'banding' effect and doesn't look smooth as it should.

I've tried switching between 16 and 32bit colour and it doesnt appear to make any difference in games (using the game setup menus), they both look exactly the same. I've tried doing the same on my desktop (Windows), and you can clearly see a difference between the 2 colour ranges. So I don't seem to have any problems in 2D enviroments, just 3D (games in this case).

I've looked through the settings in the graphics card setup (Anti aliasing/texture filtering options etc), and I cant see anything that would related to this problem, i.e no colour mode options.

I've tried running games in different resolutions and updating my graphics card drivers, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

I really have no idea what to do next.

I just printed out a colour photo using the HP PSC2410. I discovered that if a drop of water falls on it, it wipes away the color off the picture, in other waords it is a temporary print. is there any way i could make the prints permananet or am i using the wrong paper(HP glossy print) or am i using some temporary ink(HP supplied as well).

Answer:colour printer

quite common. your printing with ink...most ink will rub if you drop water on it. write on a peice of paper and it will do the same. However, on most photo quality paper, the ink pretty much stays on there if water gets on there. If you want to print out a photo and make sure nothing wrecks it, you can buy stuff to coat them. Or you could just shove it in an album/frame so no water will ever get on it

The monitor does show a red band (plus white and blue saying 'no signal') if I start it before powering up the system, also it has a red colour adjuster of it's own which changes nothing but does show the red colour, so to my limited knowledge I thought that meant that the monitor is ok.However, everything else is missing red and is predominantly blue, green or yellow and grey.I have tried altering all the settings, also done a system restore to a date prior to moving and nothing has changed, can anyone help please?Samwella

Answer:Help, Red Colour Loss!

This may work, may not but try removing ALL external cables from everything on your computer - power, peripherals (printers etc.), monitor, everything. Leave it for a while - this is just so you can collect yourself and calm down. Then reconnect everything very carefully.This doesn't do anything more than connect everything up again but there is just a chance that you've got some cable loose or the wrong way, you know the sort of thing. This procedure has worked for me in the past, it may work for you.Brian

You should be on the System Restore program, proceed to the option labled "Restore my computer to an earlier time"4. Chose the appropriate restore point and continueOnce you've finished, it's VERY important you run a virus scan on every HDD, and make sure you use updated Anti-Virus software. AVG with the latest upgrades would suffice. If you perform the scan from Safe Mode, you'll have a higher chance of catching and removing a possible infection.In future, whenever you have downloaded something, I reccomend you scan whatever it is. Also, make sure your Anti-Virus software is updated.Best of luck....It is simply phsychological analysis consisting mostly of theories I myself have to decypher and deter their respective plausibility...

Question: Display colour

My new tablet screen display has a yellowish/brownish hue to it. What is supposed to be gray, displays as dirty brown. Does anybody know if this can be changed? And if so, how? Thanks!

Answer:Display colour

Press the Windows key > type color (or perhaps colour) > select (something like, I don't know, I'm a Froggy) color-calibration. Or purchase Pantone Huey Pro (that's the best option).

Question: colour quality

When I download still images from my camcorder on to my computer, the colours look very dull and lifeless-very different from how they look on the LCD screen of the camcorder. Is there any software that could improve image quality?

Thanks-this is a great site.
 

Answer:colour quality

If you just want to pep up the image a little, Irfanview is simple: www.irfanview.com It is primarily a viewer, but it has some tools for tweaking an image.

This is freeware that will do a better job: http://www.freewarefiles.com/programs.php?ProgramID=1012&categoryid=3&subcategoryid=36 It is a lite version if their shareware program, which is excellent for the price. The freeware has the things you need like histogram and saturation that Irfanview lacks. You can download the manual for the full version at their site.

If you plan on spending the time to really learn photo editing and donít want to spend any money on a program, Gimp is now available for Windows. It isnít easy to learn, but has the capabilities of a good intermediate graphics editor: http://www.gimp.org/~tml/gimp/win32/downloads.html

These are also free and will do a nice job:

If you want to buy an intermediate image editor, Uleadís PhotoImpact and Jasic Paint Shop Pro are both excellent. From the reviews Iíve read PhotoImpact is easier to learn and at least as full featured compared to Paint Shop Pro. They both have 30 day free trials if you want to try them:

Many of my video files have problems with the colour.

I can't seem to take a screen shot. The images keep appearing black.

All I can describe is that there are many blotchy areas of the video with different colours than should be.
And sometimes a "ghost" a few centimetres to the right of the video.

HELP!

Question: monitor colour

ive recently set up dual monitors, and i have noticed the colour on the old crt im using is not right. it is slightly purple. the vga connector has 1 pin missing, and i think that may be the problem.

it is one of those annoying cables where one end actually goes into the back of the monitor, so i dont think i will be able to replace it.

is there anything i can do about this? i was thinking maybe getting a spare pin from another cable and stuffing it in or something.

anyone??

Answer:monitor colour

Yeah my screen was like that, but it was green... I just opened up the screen took another cable, and re-soldered all the good wires at the right place.

I have copied some 35mm colour neg film with my digital camera. I thought it would be easy to find software to convert it into positive files to print out, but I'm stuck. I have WinXP Paint, Olympus Camelia, Adobe,P'shopPro,... and so on. Google suggests sites that do it for a small fee but the 35mm neg film is only on loan for a few days. Any suggestions appreciated.

Answer:Colour neg reversal

In paint shop pro, try " Colors " then pick " Negative Image" from the drop down menu, does that help ? if not try click here .

Question: Colour Problems

Only today i started up my computer and xp loaded up turqoise not its regular blue.  The whole of my screen is to bright now whats up with it?

Answer:Colour Problems

Have you been able to change the screen settings on the monitor itself, how old is it? When my monitor did that it died shortly afterwards. (R.I.P) I would find that it would be fine for a few hours and then go blue for long periods of time.Could anyone have changed the monitor settings without you realising?

Question: Colour Printer

Friends, some advice please. There are 4 cartridges in the HP Colour Laserjet CP1215 printer - 1 black and 3 other colours. Now, when all the colour cartridges run out leaving only the black one, will the printer print in black only for all colours anyway? Thanks.

Answer:Colour Printer

no do not think it will work, they are all the same all carts have to have some ink for it to work at all
