Hello yall, I'm having a very annoying issue with this now. I noticed that the Ctrl+Alt+B key does something to the volume, it seems to toggle it between two states, one of which is louder and one of which is way softer (that's about as specific as I can get) which is quite annoying because I'm using this series of keys for a different purpose. I tried searching the internet but found absolutely nothing on this - any help?

Hi!

I'm using a software which requires to use the {} characters regularly.
With my keyboard setting (Hungarian) I can usually type these characters by pressing AltGr + B or N. However this software has hotkeys such as Ctrl + Alt + B or N and instead of the {} getting typed it just brings up the function the hotkey would!

Are there any ways to prevent AltGr from functioning as Ctrl+Alt too?

Please help!

Thanks in advance!

This on is quite perplexing to me. This is stemming from a volume problem that I had posted before. I have more detail and have narrowed down the problem but not the cause of such. When ever I click the volume control in winamp, not adjust necessarily, just click, my wave setting in my volume control (pannel that comes up by double clicking the speaker in the tray) drops. Of course this affects my overall volume. It is sparatic and does not drop the same amount two times in a row but will drop everytime I click volume in winamp. I am running winXP pro and have not installed so much as an update since the last time this was happening. The only thing I did change is I set up voice recognition in Office XP but I was having this problem before that. I have uninstalled and cleaned out all winamp files and reinstalled. Any suggestions? Winamp is the only player of any kind that this currently happens with.

Also, whenever I am using winamp to play an mp3 or streaming audio and I open another program, any program, or even just minimize/maximize a window, the audio starts cracking. This also has never happend before except of course when there is a heavy load on the system. As I said I am running XP pro, and FYI a Duron 900 cpu and 448MB RAM. As I am having these problems I am using 5% to 10% of my cpu and have 21000k physical memory availible according to task mgr.

Thanks.
 

A:When clicking volume in WinAmp my wave setting in Volume Ctrl drops.

I did some research at the Winamp message board and came up with this.

Yoga 2-11 Yesterday the CTRL-C, CTRL-X, and ALT-CTRL-DEL functions stopped working; strangely CTRL-V works fine. It's very difficult to get the @  and ? symbols to appear, but capital letters using the same Shift key are fine. Also, when I would type, several of the same letter would appear, and when pressing the space bar several spaces would appear. I fixed this issue by adjusting my keyboard settings by setting the repeat rating to the slowest setting. I've used device manager to uninstall the keyboard, also updated drivers, etc, but nothing seems to fix things. Using Windows Key R and OSK to display the onscreen keyboard, and using my physical keyboard for input confirms that the Shift and CTRL keys work. One thing that I noticed: when I touch the CTRL key a round onscreen circle appears and gets smaller and disappears; this is also true for CTRL-X and CTRL-C, but when using CTRL-V the circle does not appear.

Hi,

I've been getting "generic Host process for Win32" error msgs of late, resulting in the volume control not working (missing active mixer or something). Everything works fine after a reboot, but the problem keeps occuring.

I've searched the 'net and apparently other people have experienced the same problem as me. Unfortunately, no one replied to their posts, so I have no solution. Was hoping you guys would!

I'm using WinXP, and Spybot has gotten rid of all the spyware it could fine. I am, however, having problems with Gator I think. Spybot gets rid of it, but the pesky mouse add-on still comes on occasionally (when your cursor changes from an arrow to something else).

Thread title pretty much sums it up: CTRL-A disabled, CTRL Key Works, A Key Works, Other CTRL-combos work. I use CTRL-V, CTRL-C, CTRL-Z, etc all the time.

CTRL-A has never worked for me, in any application. Instead of selecting all, CTRL-A pastes, the same as CTRL-V, only when you use CTRL-A, in addition to pasting, it also makes a system sound, kind of like a knock sound. Out of desperation to identify the sound I looked control panel sounds and listened to all of them, it's not there.

I've never really needed CTRL-A until now because I'm wanting to use a specific application that has no other way to select all except CTRL-A, so I'm now desperate...

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hello. I encountered a weird problem.

I recently bough Acer Aspire 5734Z with Windows 7 Home Edition installed. When I type CTRL + C or CTRL + V my touchpad stops working for a few seconds. Then it get back to normal. And Except this the functions of ctrl + c and ctrl + v works.

This happens all the time, no matter how much I copy, I can copy nothing doing just the combination and my touch pad freezes.

When playing games as GTA Vice City I have problems using WASD movement at the same time as I adjust the screen(camera) with touch pad. Suddenly lot of combinations stop working, and I have to either stop walking around (WASD combinations) and use touchpad to adjust screen, then stop using touchpad and go back to using WASD.

I hope you understand. I am not very good at explaining things. And I really hope to find a solution to this.

When I did first-run of the laptop, the touchpad didnt have scrolling function working. So I went to acer.com, found my computer model, selected Windows 7 Home Edition and installed the newest touchpad driver 64bit. And it worked. Scrolling working. But freezing problems still occurs. And I think it might be some windows 7 anti multitasking function or something.

Just recently I'd been gone to work and my girlfriend was at home on the computer. She usually goes on myspace, xanga, facebook a lot and generally doesn't stray far from those activities. I got home and she pointed out the computer was acting weird.

When I hit ctrl+alt+del, the screen just gets a light blue sheen over it until I click and then it's gone with no sign of the task manager. Also in firefox I cannot use the ctrl keys. The left ctrl key when pressed immediately makes the font size in the window larger and larger and after 2 or 3 presses opens a new tab in firefox. The right ctrl key yesterday was opening a new tab going to gmail and today is doing a variety of things including going back a page and copying text to pages. I can't use any ctrl key combinations in any software without it doing something strange. In Azureus it opens a file's statistics for example.

Hi... I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 on my Dell Inspiron 1720 with a tricked out Firefox 3 with a bunch of extensions, and all of a sudden today I started notice that Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F, 2 keyboard shortcuts that I use ALL THE TIME, are no longer working in ANY APPLICATION. The F and Control keys are working fine separately and other common shortcuts such as Ctrl + C, V, A, O, and P are working just fine.

I've tried it in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Notepad, Paint and Dreamweaver and Ctrl + S and Ctrl + F don't work in either one of those applications. The weird thing is without doing much of anything, it was working at some point today after I had noticed it WASN'T working, but now I rebooted for another reason and those 2 shortcuts are not working again.

By the way, I went into Vista's Ease of Access center (previously called Accessibility I believe), and everything is turned off.

And I also tried the control key to the right of my keyboard. None of it works.

Very annoying... Anyone got any ideas or know of any app that will help me find out what the problem is?

Thank you very much in advance, any help's appreciated

Hi all!
I need help to use macros properly. It is my first attempt at doing this, and I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

I have found this thread which resembles my problem, but I still do not understand what to do
http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/595235-solved-need-help-macro-using.html

Basically, I have 2 Excel spreadsheets open.
One is List A, the other is List B (Master List).

I have worker codes in List A, and have to find them in the B list to assign them a code (1) in column M.

What I did was go in my first spreadsheet, and selected the first worker code. Then, I started recording my Macro from there.
Ctrl+C worker code
Ctrl+Tab to second spreadsheet
Ctrl+F to open find box
Ctrl+V to paste the worker code copied from before
Close the search box
Cursor now over Worker code, Move over to column M by pressing the RIGHT arrow 12 times (from A to M)
Type "1" and then Enter
Ctrl+Tab to come back to first spreadsheet
Down Arrow to move on to next worker code

A:Solved: Macro in Excel help! Using CTRL+V inside a CTRL+F

Macro recorder only record specific actions, not generic actions.
So you can't use it to repeat the steps for other cells.
You have to code it specifically in VBA.

As for your case you can have a lookup formula in column M of the Master list to do the check.

eg in cell M12 of List B, type
=COUNTIF('
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)

this goes to your List A first column to count the number of instances the value in cell A12 occurs.
Assuming there is no duplicate, the result is either 1 if found or 0 if not found.

If there are more than one instances in List A, the formula can be adapted to
=(COUNTIF('
[List A.xlsm]Sheet1'!A:A,A12)>0)*1

*1 will ensure that the result which is True or False becomes 1 or 0.

The XPS 15-9530 keyboard requires that you hold the Function key to do home/end (Function+Left is Home and Function+Right is End).  That works fine, but I have found that if Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End are a bit finicky.  Specifically, the key order I have to press to do a Ctrl+Home is Ctrl then Function then Left.  If I do Function then Ctrl then Left, it only sends a Home and not a Ctrl+Home.  Is there any way to work around this?  It's a bit annoying to have my Ctrl+Home and Ctrl+End fail so often while I'm retraining myself.

My remote desktop session does not appear to be sending the ctrl+alt+left (CAL) or ctrl+alt+right (CAR) combinations to the target machine.

Yesterday everything worked fine. I installed Windows Vista Ultimate 64 and could successfully RD to my laptop machine, which is running XP Pro SP2. CAL and CAR worked.

Today I installed SP1 on the Vista machine. Now my RD won't sent CAL or CAR.

I downloaded a simple keyboard tester application and installed it on both machines. Locally on the Vista machine, CAL and CAR are detected. Same thing locally on the XP machine. When I RD from Vista to XP and try the keyboard test the program shoes that it is receiving the CTRL+ALT combination but doesn't register when I hit the left or right arrow key at the same time. Interestingly, the up and down arrows *do* register.

I tried the RD connection from XP to Vista. Everything works normally. I tried an RD connection from another XP SP2 machine to my laptop. It works.

Any ideas? Is there some sort of key binding in Vista that takes the CAL and CAR combinations before RD can get them? Is RD in Vista 64 filtering them out for some reason?

Thanks

I don't know what else to call it.

It's a Canon BJC-250, I've had it 4 years, (this is the 2nd PC it's used with) and it's occasionally done this. Can't seem to pinpoint when and why.

Every now and then, usually in the middle of printing, but then for awhile after when I try and continue it, it only prints a few little meaningless symbols in the upper left corner or along the top, then rolls the paper through.

I go in to the printer (it still shows what's left of the print job, or the new one starting) and cancel it and start again, and it does it again.

Later, the printer seems to work okay again.

I was just printing 8 pages (it usually prints much more, but I don't usually print things that have too many pages) on the last page it stopped. Said there was a problem and did I want to retry or cancel? I kept retrying and pushing the reset on the printer, and it kept printing out the symbols on top.

I cancelled it and highlighted what I had left and tried to print it (selection) which was only 1/2 a page and it kept doing it. I tried copy pasting it in WordPad (instead of WORD2000 where I had it) and it did the same. (WordPad doesn't have so much, and sometimes it works better).

I saved the 8 pages in WORD and probably later will be able to print the last 1/2 page.

But, just wondered once and for all why it does this?

This is WIN 98 SE (the first PC I had with the printer was WIN 98)

Not really sure if this is a WIN problem... Read more

I have a guy that used to work at my company install more ram memory on my computer. He said he would also put XP Pro on it...I told him I liked Home but he said I could have both and it would work better and faster for me. He assured me it would do no damage, but it has or maybe just messed things up. I turn on and pick which I want then in Home nothign works...not my favs, not typing a site in go line not clicking on links...I get a message Application not available. I have done a restore to yesterday on it but it didn't help.

Can I uninstall pro and not lose any info and is it easy enough for an old lady that knows little about puters to do?

Is there anyone that I can get to help me or do it for me thru remote assistant? Please help, I am handicapped and work from home online and need my puter working right for me.:

A:XP PRO messes up XP HOME...help.

unless that guy gave you a legal xp pro cd, you have an illegal operating system on your computer. That guy need to be shot if thats the case.

Did he partition a drive to install xp pro? or was it installed on a second drive on your computer? does the nonworking application work in pro? Finally do you have a xp cd or recovery cd for home?

Basically all you need to do is to format the partition/drive that xp pro was installed on to get rid of it - start xp home, go to my computer, highlight and rightclick the drive xp pro is on, then click on format. Finally insert your xp home cd and boot to the recovery console. Once there just type fixmbr and it should take care of your dual boot screen.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Well, it sounds (no pun intended) like a driver problem.

Can you go into Device Manager, expand Sound, video and game controllers, then use the Snipping tool to take a screenshot and post it on here similar to below:

While playing Battlefield 2142, my audio on the headset (Cyber Acoustics?) began to mess up

Now I have low sound even at maximum volume, and when I play music it fades in and out, making strange changes. However when I change to balance to one side it works perfectly, and if I do a speaker test it sounds fine. Earlier I listened to my speakers (Realtek) and they were fine, but later on they started to have the same effect.
I temporarily fixed both headset and speakers by rolling back my sound drivers and restarting the computer. But right now only my speakers are good. Now when I play music on my headset, it switches from bad to good quality. I'm not sure if the game had anything to do with it.

I am all up and running great. sorted out the memory issue that prevented me using my A7n8xDel gd and my Ti4200 at 8x.

Anyway why quite often when returning from screensaver or monitor turned off( 20mins setting) nothing else ever off. does the desktop stop about an inch from the left hand side.
To get it back I have to go to settings, change to another size then say no and the correct size comes back.

I have latest Nvidia 41.09 and iiyama vision master pro454 with correct driver.

Any Ideas.
Thanks
 

A:Ti4200 messes up desktop

Please reply,
I have installed the latest video driver, yet on resume from sleep the screen has about 1 inch of black down the left hand side and to remove I have to change the screen size in settings and then let it go back to the correct setting.
Its a pain
Thanks

hello everyone. recently i installed xp on an old computer, and it was working fine for about a week with normal usage. it was a modded version called xp essential 2, with themes and programs pre installed. currently, this same xp is installed on 5 other old computers working without a hitch.

here are the computer specs:
processor: pentium III-S tualatin 1400MHz
ram: 512MB
mobo: qdi advance 10t
graphics: nvidia riva tnt2 model 64

now, here is the problem: after about a week, when you restart the computer, upon logon an error message pops up saying something about a missing shared dll file. click ok, it logs on fine. in the start menu, under "all programs" there is another folder called "programs", which is empty. before the problem occurred, you could mouse over this folder with no problem. after the error message, however, when you mouse over it, after the delay of them popping up, when the sub menu should show up, the computer just immediately shuts off with no warning, almost as if i unplugged it. i turned it back on, got the same error message, clicked ok, ran ccleaner registry scan and when it scanned activex and class issues, the computer would switch off, like before. i have reinstalled twice, but after the exact same amount of time, i get the same problem.

this problem turned up after i got a new processor for the computer. it originally had a celeron 1ghz (slow as hell), so it needed an upgrade. after i installed the n... Read more

A couple of weeks ago I developed a problem on my computer at work. This all happened after the IT department switched us from Lotus Notes to Outlook for e-mail. Wordís Normal.dot file would reset itself every day so that all my macros disappeared. Iíve had to import my backup copy several times now when all my macros have vanished at startup. After the first week or two, instead of automatically erasing Normal.dot, Word started giving me a message when I start it that thereís a problem and do I want to create a new Normal.dot, to which I say No, and it all seems fine. The IT department doesnít know why this happened nor do they particularly care, which is why Iíve come here for help.

Iíve found that if I start Word first, Normal.dot works fine and there are no error messages. If I start Outlook first, when I open Word I get an error message that somethingís wrong with Normal.dot and do I want to make a new one. If I compose an e-mail in Outlook before opening Word on its own, Normal.dot is erased and all my macros disappear. Obviously, Outlook is doing something. Iíd like to make it stop. Iíve looked for settings but canít find any that seem to indicate a preference for overwriting Normal.dot. Iíve come to prefer using Word as my e-mail editor, since I can use my macros and Autocorrect, which saves time. Despite having the ďuse autocorrect when Word isnít the e-mail editorĒ option checked, Outlook wonít actually use my autocorrect settings (Access does use t... Read more

A:outlook messes up normal.dot

The more I looked around on the net for anything relating to the problem of "Outlook corrupts normal dot" the more information I found on viruses. Have you considered that possibility?

Have you tried deleting the normal.dot you have with all your macros and then running Outlook and then trying Word? If things work correctly doing that, then look to your copy of normal.dot as the culprit rather than Outlook.

It's a place to start, anyway.

How fun. Earlier this week, my state experienced some severe weather which ended with a tree on our street falling and the power going out all day. It took a bit longer after that for our cable services to be restored - internet included. Ever since then, my computer in particular seems to be screwing things up for everyone else. When my computer is shut off, every other computer (one laptop, two desktops) in the house has been able to connect to the internet and maintain that connection all day. However, as soon as mine connects, the connection dies within minutes - for everyone.

I thought it could be an IP conflict but every machine in the house is set to obtain their IP automatically.

Interestingly enough, when the XBOX 360 is bridged through my computer it (the xbox) also maintains a connection, albeit a slower one.

I have spent all day trying to figure out what is going on to no avail. I have reset both the router and modem, including hard resets, and I've pinged and pinged and pinged. The same thing seems to happen regardless of whether I am using a wired or wireless connection. Here's what I have:

Computer model is HP DV6838nr.
Modem is Toshiba DAZ8821F.
Router is Linksys wrt54g v5.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate.
I am using Firefox but have also tried Opera with the same results.
