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.

Answer:I can't set a black custom colour.

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 ...

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.

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".

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.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

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:

My windows disk would probably have a driver, but I don't know what to look for as its all abbreviated or code. Help would be appreciated.

Answer:256 colour

Quote from: blackrainbow on June 17, 2010, 08:31:21 AMmobile intel 915 gsm chipsetThe problem most likely lies in this, as the Intel chipsets are not designed for 3D gaming and can't handle the stress.You're probably right, it's not a driver issue, it's a hardware one. It's not a problem, it's just that you've reached the limit to what the Intel video chipset can do.

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?

Hi There,

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!

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

my ' KODAK ESP310 AiO' printer only printing blue/yellow.not picking up red. I have replaced cartridge Kodak 30CL. still no red!

Answer:colour red not printing

The print head nozzle for Red is probably plugged up. Are you using genuine Kodak ink? Do you use the printer regularly? That means every few days.Try running the cleaning process a couple of times. Looks like the printhead is removable. If the above doesn't work then remove the printhead and run it under hot water in the kitchen sink. You will see the different color ink come out by moving the water stream. Rubbing alcohol can also be useful to clean the bottom of the printhead. Use Q-tips.

Hi there - I'm trying to print out a document using colour separation in Publisher and or Serif Pageplus...I can print in colour normally, but when I try to print to Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black all I get is black and white printouts of varying magnitide. Only the composite looks and prints out in colour.Is this what I should be expecting?

Answer:Colour Separation (again)

What you are getting are the instructions for colour separation printing machines - as used by larger scale commercial printers.These printers operate by inking the sheet in three (or four) separate processes each process using a different colour - CYM(K). Traditionally, these separations were for preparing silk screens and there was no requirement for colour information within the file.So, if you are trying to print these separations on a normal SOHO printer, there is no instruction in the files for them to be printed in any other colour than black. On a computer controlled colour spearation printer, the instruction for the separation print normally readable only with specific software.Do you have a good reason to print in colour separation? If not, I would leave well alone because without appropriate equipment i.e. at least a colour separation printer, you could end up in a real mess and very confused.

Question: Epson colour 440

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.

Answer:Colour printing

Adjust your monitor first using a program like click here then try again. You may have to alter the printer settings for colour as well. The type of paper you print on and the ink will also make a difference. You will never get a perfect match as one is reflected and the other transmitted colour.

I am a teacher, and several of my pupils have a problem reading anything on a white background. I can often change the colour of backgrounds, but there are certain applications where it's not possible.

So, rather than ask how to remove a colour cast from my monitor, I'd like to be able to overlay a blue or pink colour cast on my entire monitor - can anybody tell me about any software which has this functionality? I'd like it to be configurable and easily 'turn off and onable.'

Alternatively - any easy to use colour profile management tools for windows xp? The microsoft color management control panel plugin doesn't seem to make it possible to achieve what I want.

Question: colour problems

I run a Windows 98 SE computer with 10GB hard disc and 192 MB RAM. Recently, I had a bad time installing the Asus External CD-RW. I have already uninstalled then re-installed it and did manage to copy my latest pictures. They appeared on the CD as I expected but then, each time I tried to do anything with them the computer grumbled and crashed or froze. I persevered over several days and did get something going (using the CD drive, chiefly) but then everything went haywire and I couldn?t open any of them. Finally, all the icons changed one at a time and I watched as they changed again and 3 letters appeared on the icons, one by one. I can?t recall the letters but they did indicate that they were not going to be opened by me or anyone else now or ever! What have I done wrong? The computer was not at all happy and made complaining noises, as did I. I tried again this morning and although I was able to put them on the screen after a lot of effort, the computer didn?t like it. I tried other CDs and they were OK. So I?ve wiped the disc. Maybe it?s a duff disc. Now there are several things wrong with the computer; the colours are not right.

Answer:colour problems

You don't mention the software that you used to try to work on your images, and it would help to know that.Your display settings have certainly gone AWOL, and the first thing to do is to reset them. As you may know, you do that by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting 'properties' from the menu that appears. Click on the 'settings' tab (I'm working blind here, because I'm running WindowsXP) or whatever in Win98 that shows you two sliders - one with the resolution, and one with the colour bit depth. Move the resolution slider until it reads 1024x768, and then see if you can move the colour bit setting until it shows '16 bit'.If that works you should now be seeing a better display.If it doesn't work you may have a corrupted or missing graphics card driver, or monitor driver, or both, and we'll deal with that if it crops up.I'm puzzled - and a tad concerned - over these 'complaining noises' that you say your machine is making. Can you describe them in greater detail, and tell us precisely at what point in the proceedings they happen?

Desktop

Game

I have a GTX 260, with the latest driver installed. I spent quite a while messing around with my monitor settings, to no avail.

Specs (if needed):

Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit

I don't see what's wrong with your desktop...

As for the game screenshot you provide:

- Most games have their own color settings. Desktop color depth is not automatically applied to games, this has to be done manually in most cases.

- This game seems to be quite old (judging by the polygon count of the models), are you sure that it fully supports your hardware? Do you have any screenshots of newer games with the same problem?

How can I adjust the colour of my photos they are coming out too green and the reds are too dull. I have a DellOptiplex 980 PC windows7 OS and an HPcolor laserjet printer CP2025. I seem to be printing from microsoft office 2000 and I don't see any options for the colours. Sorry to be so dim I would appreciate any help.

Question: colour problems

after trying to load a-o-l,8 i had to reboot pc to origanal settings now i find i can only get the basic colours and cannot alter graphic size,ive tried going to settings and altering them but no good i know monitor can take the changes as had it in before but cannot remember how to do it---do i need to re-install win 98?

Answer:colour problems

Do not re-install W98 yet.The probability is that you have somehow "lost" the display drivers.Try device manager in Control Panel > System.........click on the Display adapter, and properties, and then select driver and update driver.At this point you should be able to install your video card driver over again.

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: Excel and colour

I was recently given an excel sheet for risk Assessment, all set up cos i know nothing. Any how one of the cells reads High,Medium or low depending on the input of other cells.Thing is when I got it the writing was in red as opposed to black to highlight it. Since then I have obviously changed something because this cell is now in black. Hope that is straight forward and thanks in advance

Answer:Excel and colour

Does it appear in black whether it says High, Medium or Low? It may have been set up with Conditional Formatting to change the font colour depending on the content of the cell.

Have you taken the colour cartridge out and then put it back in again?
Was/is the cartridge recognised?

Question: IE6 toolbar colour

just changed the colour of the toolbar of Internet explorer to silver and noticed the colour fades from right side to very light left side? is this right! If I use Avant browser the top bar looks OK in silver.....................

Answer:IE6 toolbar colour

The title bar colour is set under display properties. You get there by right clicking a blank are of the desktop and selecting the Appearance tab, then clicking on the Advanced button (XP) You can choose a single colour or fade one colour into another etc

I ask because Half the colors from this message board do not appear in FF.

For example. My name, in IE, is red. In FF, my name is black. On the index page there is a key that identifies the members and who/what they are.. In FF, only around 5 or six actually have colours. The rest are black... Even tech which should be light blue, is bold black.

Is there a fix, patch or any thing I can do to get FF to recognise colours like IE does?

Answer:Are Fox's Colour Blind?

Same problem here. None of the team colours are there, and Tech position is in bold black.

I'm guessing there's no patches as this version of Firefox was downloaded two days ago....

-EDIT

This is quite amusing really, as we're always telling people Firefox is better than IE and almost everywhere can do a better job than it..... not much of an advert really is it?

Yes folks, I want to help a friend get the colour back onto his monitor. You see, I thought I could help so I went to control panel then display, but I found only 2 colour options the best being 16 colour. This is not good enough because he was using 256 before. Then he tried to create space on the hdd, but he found that the colour is gone forever. Before I start lookoing for an appropriate VGA driver, is there any trick I could play to get the 256 colour back now now? thank you in advance.

Answer:PC HAS LOST ITS COLOUR!!

Try removning the graphics card via the device manager and reboot; it may install the old drivers.If not, you will have to install the new drivers.

Question: Colour Schemes

I'm having colour issues with XP, for some reason Office and WMP are high contrast black and white although its not selected anywhere. I've attached a doc with some screenshots to show what I mean. An help would be very much appreciated.
 

Answer:Colour Schemes

This looks similar to a problem that Internet Explorer 8 can have so try the fix for that which is to change the Desktop Theme then change it back again.

If that works then do Start > Run type SERVICES.MSC press Enter and right-click the Themes service > Properties then change the Startup type to Manual.

That should stop this happening again.
