Q: Special Away Messages

Does anyone know how to setup AIM (or trillian www.trillian.cc) so that what away message is sent to people is specific to their screen name. Like say I have a message for littlebob23 if Joe2121 IMs me... they get "I am away right now" but if littlebob23 IMs me, they get "Hey Little Bob! How are you?" Is that possible?

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.)

My wife has a contact person whith whom she corresponds regularly. She would like all messages from that person to go into a special folder. We have created the folder but we don't know how to get the messages to go into that special folder without dragging them into the file folder. Seems like there should be an easy way to set this up. We are using Windows Live Hotmail with POP3 identities as well.

Thanks,

I have two Dell Inspiron 17R 7720 laptops. My "old" one I bought direct from Dell in 2012, the "new" one, advertised as an "Inspiron 17R 7720 Special Edition",  I bought on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I still have the original paperwork for the old one from when I purchased it from Dell and there is no mention of "Special Edition" in the paperwork. Both are identified only as "Inspiron 7720" on the label on the underside of the computer, and there are no "Special Edition" markings or labeling anywhere on the new computer.
Hardware is pretty much identical, 1TB Samsung ST1000LM024HN HDDs, 8 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000/Nvidia GeForce GT 650M Video/3D graphics, Backlit Keyboard on both. The only hardware differences are the old computer has an Intel Core i7-3610QM processor (specified by me when I ordered the computer) and a 32GB mSATA SSD while the new computer has an Intel Core i5-3210M processor and no mSATA SSD. 
So what makes the "Special Edition" so special? Is there REALLY anything different about "Special Edition" computers, or was that just some sort of marketing hype?

A:What is so special about an Inspiron 17R 7720 "Special Edition"?

The mSATA cache drive was one of the differentiators.  When that system was built, SSDs were appreciably more expensive than they are now.

I log into email account for yahoo. Screen opens and it shows Loading... I am using a Vista Home Premium PC. There is nothing on screen but blank page. You see the headings menu in inbox. But, cannot see the inbox and mail. Is there a registry fix or regsvr32 script that I should run, or is there some type of .dll problem? Help or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank you...

You have not said what browser you are using so I will just give a guide using IE8.

The most common fix for this problem seems to be to delete your browsing history, cookies, etc. With the browser open click on Tools, Internet Options, then select Delete under Browsing History, on the next page uncheck all the boxes and click on Delete. Give it a minute or two to complete and then reboot the PC.

This will have deleted all your saved passwords so you will have to enter and save any you use.

This address will go directly to the mail page, if you get stuck, and you could also try using the refresh button.

A:New to HJT, see anything special?!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below. Also if you have any programs that may prevent system changes (like Spybot's TeaTimer program, Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, and others), make sure you disable them before doing any of the fixes (or accept the changes for the fix we give you when asked by the programs).

Go to My Computer->Tools (or View)->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders (it's Show all files for Windows 98).
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Make sure you downloaded, installed, updated and ran these programs (run in Safe Mode) already - Ad-aware, Spybot and Ewido (only if you have Windows 2000 or XP). If you didn't, do them now. For more information, go to http://www.greyknight17.com/spyware.htm

I have a computer thats a few years old. A friend of mine had a computer shop with top-notch equipment laying around and just threw it together for me one day. I do plenty of downloading and all that. Its always ran very well with its 896MB RAM and 1.21G Processor. A few nights ago it started rebooting itself, and after a few times would start rebooting itself while still trying to load Windows. I unhooked the ethernet wire and tried to start Windows, everything went fine untill I plugged the wire back in and opened internet explorer. I figured I just got a virus and tried to reformatt everything and for three nights it would freeze in the middle of loading the boot disc and such. finally it made it thru the install..... all TEN HOURS of it! It went so unbelivably slow and now that windows is installed it takes about 15 min just to get to the welcome screen and another 20 untill I can actually open anything on my desktop. I've changed my RAM chips to any different possiable combination, including each one by itself. I have a seperate back-up hard drive that I've also tried to install Windows on to no avail. I think it maybe my processor. Is there any test I could get to find out or any other ideas that may help? Im usually good at this stuff myself but right now im totally stumped.

In a couple of days, I will have two PCs and two monitors. That sounds totally typical and understandable, but NOT in the configuration I have in mind. I will be working on one pc at a time, using two monitors at a time, and then I will (somehow ) switch to the other pc and use the same two monitors with this other pc.

Each PC already has the kind of video card that will allow dual monitor useage. What I need is to know how to set this gear up to work the way I need it to work.

Someone said I might be able to use two KVM switches (somehow). But I need to know what to buy and how to connect it up. Will it be some fancy A/B switch of some sort? Or some kind of special KVM cable or box? Maybe two?

Surely this configuration has been done before. If you are someone who knows the best way to do this, I'd be grateful to tap into your knowledge on the subject.

I have an old Vaio laptop that was given to me a while back. It was working fine then it stopped booting. I played with it, then decided to reinstall Windows XP.

Now I have Windows XP installed fine, but it doesn't seem to be recognizing the battery. There are no battery power management options and when I unplug it after charging it all night it goes dead.

I don't have much experience with laptops, and I don't have access to the original OS disc that came with the laptop. Do I need a special version of XP for laptops, or is there something I can download to get it working on battery power again? I don't think this is the same problem that had me reinstall Windows, the battery still worked then.

NO, no luck. It still gives you all unhidden user account to select from in order to log on though.

Unfortunately the account I have hidden is the only Administrator account I have in the system. I've tried to change the registry by logging on as a standard user. However both the command prompt and the regedit do not offer option to run as administrator.

Hi everyone,

I have a USB device which I'm using to connect my PC to an arcade machine. The idea behind all this is so I can press a button on the machine and then the PC will pick up that button press as a keyboard button or a joystick button being pressed.

The game I'm using can only map controls using either a keyboard (USB or PS/2) or Joystick (USB only).

The board itself once connected to the PC shows up on my device list as a "USB composite device" but what I actually want is for that device to be listed as either a keyboard or a Joystick so that the game is able to map the buttons.

Would I need some sort of special driver for this or is there another way around this problem? Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

A:Need help with special USB device

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Yes I believe you need a driver for the device. Every device, whether it be a printer, disk drive, or keyboard, must have a driver program. A driver acts like a translator between the device and programs that use the device. Each device has its own set of specialized commands that only its driver knows.

I have switched to win7 64bit and have a serious question. My HD is a 500GB drive with 3 partitions. the first two are used for system restoration, one being 100MB and the other being 16GB. The third partition (C: drive) is what's left. I am wanting to reformat my C: partition to NTFS but using 512 byte sectors instead of 4K clusters. (Just to save as much space as possible, since I can reclaim about 5 or 6 GB by doing this)

I had seen a drive or two give an error about the drive being too large for that size cluster, but that was with a 32 bit system. Since this is 64 bit, it should handle it easily.

I want to know if I am in error on this, and if it is possible, I need to find a 3rd party tool that will let me format the drive to my specs instead of just handing out a default 4K cluster format.

Is this going to work for me? And what tool should I use to do the formatting? Hopefully it's a free tool, since I am only going to be doing this once.

A:special HDD formatting

I think Partition Wizard Home Edition will do that. It's free.

I have no idea if you ultimately SHOULD do it or what might go wrong. Back up first, of course.

I just converted some mov files to avi. They won't play on Windows Media Player 10. After Media Player looks for codecs, I am getting the following error message.

C00D11CD: Unknown error
Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error. This can occur when another program or operating system component encounters a problem but does not communicate the nature of the problem to Windows Media Player.
Error ID = 0xC00D11CD, Condition ID = 0x00000000

Do I need another codec? If so, what do I look for? Is there a solution to this problem?
Thanks, Jim

I have found all the 64 bit drivers that I need for all my components and all 64 bit software and have it ready when I install V64 on my new build. Is there anything special that I am going to need to do during install or after install that isn't in the norm when it comes to installation???

A:Do I need to do anything special after V 64 is installed?

The only thing to be aware of is that on a few systems Vista x64 will not install with 4 or more gig of ram

Im not sure if this is the right thread to post this but close enough...

I am going on to uni to study special effects and was wandering what would be the best specification PC for this job. Any info on this subject would be great.

I was also considering whether to get a PC or a Mac so any advice in regards to that would also be much appreciated.

Thanks!
 

A:Special effects

Video or audio special effects, or both?

Greetings.
I have now a Windows 7 install in one SSD in MBR-mode
I have also a Windows 8 install on another SSD in GPT mode.

As now I choose which system to buut by BIOS, but I would like to have a boot menu, so I don't have to use BIOS to select.

Is it possible to greate a dualboot menu after BOTH installations is done? If so, how do I do it? Which will be the "main boot SSD", the MBR or the GPT moded SSD?

I know it is a bit backward work that has to be done, but I'm so dissapointed about Windows 8, that I don't want to loose my Windows 7.

A:A special DualBoot - how?

The program I use for this exact thing (I have 3 versions of 7 on the same machine) is EASY BCD EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Free for non commercial use. This is NOT a TOY, be careful with the program as it can mess stuff up. If you install the program it will offer you a choice of booting to operating systems.

Hi everyone, I just had this idea the other night and I don't know how to do it, or if it's possible.
I've been using this Entertainment Hub program called XBMC that let's me organize all my media, I have it set to pull everything from my external hdd like movies, audio, pictures, etc. and then it pulls information like covers, cast, year, bios, and etc from the internet, all the information on whatever movie or album it needs to. It is quite a big program so sometimes it crashes when running because of all the other processes I have going on.
 
So my idea was to only boot up this program by itself as a dual boot or something along those lines. I already have a dual boot set up so I was hoping that my idea would have it's own custom boot option added to the list. For example, If I just booted up my computer, I usually have to select between Windows and Linux. I would want to be able to select my custom boot instead like...
Windows Vista
Ubuntu 12.04
XBMC
 
And if this custom boot was possible, the only other factors I would need to figure out would be that the program get's information on movies and audio from the internet, so I would need to have an internet connection possible along with my firewall and antivirus running. Plus being able to access my external of course.
Thank you for any help in advance. -Slim

A:My Special Idea

I don't think your ambition is possible - the XMBC web-site says it is available for both Windows and Linux ( as well as others ) but this implies you need an operating system to run it on so you will not be able to set XMBC up as a third bootable system.
 
You say it crashes from time to time because of other demands on your system. Would it be effective to run it under Ubuntu which I believe requires fewer resources than Windows to run ?  Alternatively, have you considered increasing the amount of RAM on your system ? And, are you using the latest version of XMBC ?

Alright.. I'm looking for software that will start any program at a given time, let the program run a task, then close the program, without me ever having to touch my computer in the meantime. Does something like this exist? Thanks!

A:Looking for a special program...

All modern operating systems have this functionality built in.On Windows, it's called the Task Scheduler.On Linux, it's called cron.On Mac OS X I'm not sure what they call it. But I'm pretty sure that cron is lurking there somewhere.

I am using Microsoft Works word processor program. I need to cut and paste a document into Windows Mail The document contains 'em dashes.' These transfer as the numeral '3/4', rather than an em dash. Any suggestions?
 

A:Special characters

Remove the *em dashes* and replace them with -- instead. That should transfer just fine.
