Preferred Solution: Raising height of ThinkCentre e93z?

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.)

Hi guys, I have windows 10 1709 updated from W7. the product is exactly 10B8003TIX.if I go to start and click on shutdown it shuts down, the power led turns off but after few second it reboots normally exactly as if I pressed the poeer button.The difference between this and a reboot is the power led, in a proper reboot from Start button the poer led stays turned on.I performed all windows updates and all lenonovo system updates. my Bios version is FFKT28AUS and on the product page I found the FFKT46A version, I tried to flash it through cdrom and from the operating system but no changes... i could try the USB drive flashing but there are no instructions and I don't know how.I also tried to perfom a clean boot and also to restore default settings in bios but nothing changed.I am lost....could you help?RegardsFranco

I have an Acer Aspire X1800 in a ridiculously small case. Everything gets way too hot and no room for cooling. Plus according to eXtreme Power supply calculator the supplied 220W PSU is well below recommended minimum (and making noises!). So I've nearly finished moving the hardware across to a Thermaltake V4 case with 450W PSU ($73 all up).
I want to keep the old Nvidia 9500GT graphics card but it has a low profile (~1/2 height) mounting bracket with DVI & hdmi holes. The card does really need to be secured. Any suggestions????
(I don't want to buy another graphics card as this is not my main PC)

Edit: I'm asking the question here because I'm guessing quite a few people may have thought about doing something similar. ie. OEM PCs from a crappy little case to a decent sized case.

Did you check your box for your video card. I have a half height video card that had a short and long mounting bracket. If not, you may be able to find them online.

Hi folks.  I am working on an e93z-10BA (ThinkCentre AIO i5/500gb HDD/Touch screen). It has a corrupt EDID for the monitor/screen. It is loading the default Microsoft digital panel info and displaying at 1024x768. I know most manufacturers provide an INF file to override the monitor?s EDID information in Windows.

Hi all, We are a school and recently have bought 34 of the above Thinkcentres for an IT suite. Unfortuantely 7 now are displaying the above issues. To recap: The screen is blank, but if you screen change mode it says on the screen it is in PC mode (so screen works)The mouse and keyboard are dead and yes they are plugged in!The green power light (bottom right hand side)  is constant green even if you reboot (5 second finger) it still is constant green when it come back, never orange and the machine does no start. Fan is operating.There is power to the machine that IS on. I have swapped out the power cables and mice, put the "faulty" mice onto another machine and they have all worked, but not when you place then on these 7 machines. If any of you techies could figure this out that would be great, it would be a shame if we had to warranty return 7 Lenovo machines due to being faulty..   Thanks all Andy

this is a better way to word my last question

i raised the crossover frequency on my speakers by using my nforce2 mcp-t soundstorm utility,

what does raising the crossover frequency do, does it damage anything if i goto high?

tnx for future answers.

im using a ga-7n400 pro mobo

A:what does raising crossover frequency do!

Taken from XBit Labs:

LFE Crossover Frequency: corrects the low-frequency signal volume for front satellites and routes it to the subwooferClick to expand...

Although I'm not 100% sure, I would guess that any sound lower than the frequency specified would be play through the subwoofer instead of going through the satellites. This can be useful for obvious reasons (e.g. if you are getting too much bass through the satellites) but if you turn it too far up I bet it will start sounding kind of awkward.

Perhaps you should play with the setting and find out what sounds best for you.

OK...here is the thing.
I have never had that kind of problem in over a year of using win7,and definetely,I'm not smart enough for that.
In my sistem,I have 4GB [email protected],and processor AMD 5600+ installed,and have never felt a lack of memory.
Usually,when PC is in iddle,and when doing nothing,it consumes about 1,5GB RAM and 3-7% of CPU.
Problem started yesterday,after I installed Bioshock 2,I think,at least,I noticed it then.
When I start PC,it consumes about cca 30-35% of 4gigs,but after about 15 minutes,or after any heavier work(or after any usual work,it doesn't have to be heavy at all,let's say after scanning with Malwarebytes),RAM usage jumps to 90-95%,and then falls at about 80% and stay there.So what is happening?Basically nothing,CPU load falls to normal,let's say 3% where it should be when iddle,and RAM usage at idle stays at 80%??
OK,I opened task manager to find what app could eat so much RAM,but when count all together,I am at about 1,5gigs,and task manager still shows 80%.
After that,I've opened performance monitor to look there,thought maybe task manager shows wrong,but at the Performance monitor line stops at about 3300Mb,and the weirdest thing is that even there is sum of all apps no more then 1500Mb.
I tried to change paging file lower and higher,but also nothing happened,and it shouldn't because everything is still like it used to be always.
Basically,that means something is happening somewhere,and I don't see that.

So,my question would be if there is any a... Read more

I regularly get a pernickety colleague asking me this one and to date I haven't found a solution on this site, google or anywhere else. He prepares lots of letters in which he refers to sizes and areas. So if an area is 5 metres (meters, if you prefer) by 3, he'll type "15m2". Is it possible to raise the '2' (and use a smaller font)?

Can't find it in symbol list in Word and I know it can be done in Excel, where you can align cell contents vertically as well as horizontally.....

Ta in advance


A:Solved: Word 2000 - Raising the '2' in 'm2'

What you're referring to is a font formatting type called superscript. It's very easy to do in Word 2000 if your friend adds the superscript tool to his formatting toolbar. Unfortunately I don't have Word installed on my machine so I can't post some step-by-step instructions, but maybe I can find a tutorial. I'll bump back.

If you use Windows 2000 and have a geForce, you may have noticed that Windows defaults to a 60hz refresh rate in OpenGL and DirectX applications/games. There is a trick to getting these refresh rates much higher.

First, uninstall your video drivers, making sure you have the latest ready to install. (This part can be done before uninstalling)Next, find the .inf file that deals with your display from the Detonator drivers. I am using the 5.32 Dets and the inf file is called nv4_disp.inf. Search for a line that looks like the following:

%REG_MULTI_SZ%, "8 640 480 60 70 72 75 85 100 120 0"

As you can see the 640x480 is the res followed by the refresh rates. Windows will use only 60hz here. Change the line to reflect the highest allowable refresh rate the your video card/monitor can handle. Mine is 75hz, so it looks like this

%REG_MULTI_SZ%, "8 800 600 75 85 100 120 0"

Do this for every one of the lines...yes there are a ton of them to edit. It is much quicker if you use Notepad's Replace feature.

Important: I have heard that changing anything for the 640x480 resolutions can cause problems so you might not want to edit them...I didn't.

Then save the file and install your drivers again.

Notice the increase in framerates? (Turn V Sync of too!)


A:Raising refresh rate in Win2k w/geForce

I was just notified of an easier way to do this.


Go to the More Help tab and click the Override button. Enter your desired refresh rate value.

I am facing a problem since yesterday.I have two operating systems in my computer,XP and 7.My win7 got corrupted and i had to install the OS a few days back.Currently the win7 is in it's default condition,i mean there is not much settings done or any other tweaking.
When i play some movie file,in media player classic (k-lite codec pack),after almost 30sec the system process rises and the fan speed also rises giving quite noticeable sound.when i pause of stop the movie,process comes down and then fan speed also gets normal in sometime.
I tried going to control panel,and set system and performance tools,and rated the computer to set everything,then removed anything from system startup which might be slowing it down.But the problem is still there.
I tried using windows media player and VLC,they work fine.Then what's wrong with media player classic.it's inner settings are changed by me,setting output to "video mixing renderer 9 (renderless)" for using subtitles with movies.
i tried changing the inner settings of media player classic but it didn't resolve the issue.

However,inside windows XP,everything works fine and normal with any kind of media player and no such hardware issues.

my system specs which i am using currently are:
Processor: 3.0GHz Pentium D
Ram: 2GB DDR2
VGA: External PCI Express 256mb nvidia 7300GS

Can anyone help me out.

A:[SOLVED] System process raising on media files

Hello awaisagha,

To clarify, your issue is that when using Windows Media Player, your system's fans start making more noise, but there is no noticeable issue with your machine (i.e., everything works fine, no slowness)?

This could be caused by a slight overheating, Windows Media Player may require more resources from your system than VLC.

Ways to test this theory could be to open up a lot of tabs on your browser (loading flash games or videos?) or to play a system resource demanding game.

Windows 7 would take more out of your system than Windows XP, so if the issue is overheating, then this could help explain why.

I presume this is a Desktop PC? When was the last time you cleaned out the inside, i.e., got a can of compressed air and blew out the dust from around the vents, etc.

It would help to ascertain where the noise was coming from, your graphics card fan, the CPU fan, or somewhere else?


Do you know if your have a 64bit version of Windows 7 installed? 2GB of RAM would then be the minimum, so you may need more memory.

Adobe Flash Cookies Raising Privacy Questions Again.

Nearly a year after we discussed the privacy implications of Flash cookies, they are in the news again as the US government considers revising its cookie policy. Wired covers a study out of UC Berkeley exposing questionable practices used by many of the Internet's most-visited Web sites (abstract). The most questionable activity the report exposes is known as "respawning": after a user has deleted browser tracking cookies, some sites will use information in Flash cookies to recreate them. The report names two companies, Clearspring and QuantCast, whose technologies reinstate cookies for other Web sites.

-- Tom

A:Adobe Flash Cookies Raising Privacy Questions Again

An issue of the Windows Secrets Newsletter drew my attention to the potential problems caused by the behaviour of Flash in allowing sites to store cookies up to 100KB in size and then permitting third parties to access that information.

The antidote suggested was the Adobe Settings Manager (which you can only access online!); http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager06.html If it works as advertised, the settings allow you to prevent information being stored (or to delete what is already stored), plus you can prevent sites from trying to access your microphone or camera.

Do you know if these processes might, by any chance, enumerate lots of users in a domain or at least ATA might seem this that way?

Thank you very much in advance.

I want to change the default row height for an whole notebook file in QPro, to allow room for superscript and subscript--and have it legible. the only way I can find to change row height is for a selection, (Format> selection properties> Row options) but I want to keep adding to this file and would like the change to be permanent for this file only.

Did you try doing a "CTRL-A" to select the whole worksheet and then apply the settings?

I made numerous rows in excel with a height of zero since I didn't know about hiding them. Now I want to make them any non zero number to get them back in order to hide them now. Problem is I dont know how to select these rows and change the height.
I tried imputing the rows manually in the upper left box but this only lets me change the height of one row at a time, I need to do this with almost 200 rows. This is excel 2007 by the way.

My secondary rig is on a 17" CRT, unlike my primary which is on a 23" LCD. With the primary display, the Start Menu button extends slightly above the Taskbar, making all of the icons on it to be a bit smaller, but on the CRT, the Start Menu button fits within the taskbar, and all icons are the same size as it.

I would like to duplicate the appearance of the LCD display, but when I unlock the taskbar, and try to drag it lower, it won't move. Is this simply controlled by my display sizes and/or resolutions, or is there something else that I can do to get it the way that I want?

Hi Folks,

I'm looking to replace a standard 9.5mm (height) HDD with what seems like the latest 7mm variant. Specifically, I have a failing Samsung HM160HI and I'm considering the Hitachi Z7K320 range of HDDs. I was going for the Hitachi 7K320 (9.5mm) but they seem to have been superseded by the Z7K320 (7mm) series.

So, my question is - are the 7mm drives a direct drop-in replacement for their 9.5mm predecessors? Or, should I expect problems?

BTW, I have a Dell Vostro 1310 laptop.

Any comments appreciated.


A:7mm Height HDD Compatibility

From the Hitachi site:

Travelstar™ Z7K320 is the industry's first 7200 RPM, 7mm, 2.5-inch hard drive with capacities ranging from 160GB to 320GB. The 320GB per platter one-disk models are designed as a direct replacement for standard 9.5mm HDDs, for use in notebook PCs, external storage and compact systems. The Z7K320 offers design flexibility to accommodate new thinner and more robust devices/systems and delivers up to 18% better application performance than 5400 RPM models of the same capacity.Click to expand...

The drive is thinner, but otherwise compatible, the only place I see a problem is if the drive is held in place by pressure from the hard drive cover but in most laptops the drive is first mounted into a bracket then installed into the laptop and that would hold it in place securely.

I always get confused about film sizes so is there a rule of thumb to go by, or a way of calculating the ratio between width and height?
I hate these nnn x 272 formats as it's like looking through a postbox when played on my tv, but then this appears to be the norm nowadays!
Anyway, I have two of the same film, not yet burnt to disk, one is 720 x 304 and the other is 700 x 292.
What one, if any, will give the better height when played back on the tv?

A:Video width and height

You won't see any difference
First ratio is 2.36, the 2nd one is 2.39

I would like to know how to reduce the height of title bar in windows / Firefox as per the attached image?

A:Reducing the height of title bar

You can't. That is built into the theming dll's (uxtheme.dll, browseui.dll, msstyle.dll, etc) . The only way to change it would be to use themes.

I have many computers on my network and I want them all to be standardized with the same Taskbar Height.
I am looking for a Registry Key that defines the Taskbar Height...not the taskbar buttons or icons, but the Taskbar itself.  By default, Windows 7 installs with the Taskbar at 1 row in height.  I want to be able to set the Taskbar Height at 2 rows
by changing the value of the key in the registry that defines Taskbar Height.
If there is not a registry key that defines this, how can I change this in Group Policy so that all users on my network will have the same "2 row" Taskbar Height on their Windows 7 & Windows 8 systems?
Lastly, I want to have all systems configured so that once the "2 row" taskbar height is set, users will not be able to change it.

A:Taskbar Height Registry Key or GPO

I have captured the registry key changes when I modified the size of the taskbar, there are only keys under HKEY_USERS have been changed:

Hey Guys,

So I'm working on a Macro that draws information from one sheet to another in order to build a better looking Report of that information.

However when I draw something larger like a description or status, which has multiple lines of text, I can't get my cell on the new sheet to automatically change its height to fit the text.

Anyone else run into this issue?


A:Excel Row Height Issue

You have to set the cell's properties too
if you do cell.columns.autofit
and cell.rows.autofit
But specific height are possible too and will affect the whoe row as well ats the whole column

When Copying and pasting you also have to indicat that you want to paste the format so it will be an identical copy

I've got my taskbar set to use small icons, but I'm wondering if there's any way to make it even thinner yet.
Basically, I use a custom start orb that looks like the min/max/close buttons, and I'd like to make it so the distance from the bottom of that to the bottom of the taskbar is the same distance as the close button from the lower edge of the caption bar when a window is maximized. Which I believe is 2 pixels.
Is that possible?
