I'm using a Lenovo laptop with integrated intel graphics, I'm also using an Acer B223W attached as an external display. There is an issue with the monitor where there is a four inch black bar running down the right side. Basically the display is shifted four inches to the left, leaving me with four inches of unusable monitor real estate on the right. I've trouble shot it, to no avail and the monitor's display settings only allow me to shift the monitor's display an inch or so. I need something like catalyst control center that will allow me to shift the monitor's picture as much as I'd like. Any ideas?

Hi,
i am trying to hook up my media centre to my plasma tv and i turn on the computer the windows ex sign comes up but when it loads a bit further the screen goes blank and it tells me on the screen that its a 'Invalid Format'. i dont know how to fix the problem, ive tried doing it on the help screen on the tv but it doesnt work. i dont know how to adjust the resolution and frequency.

Any help would be much appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Invalid Format

Most likely its because the TV is limited to just a few resolutions it can accept from a PC. You'll need to read the spec sheet or manual for the TV to find which resolutions should work for the connection type you are using.

Then you'll probably need to attach a computer monitor to set the resolution and refresh rate if need be, to a compatible one before hooking it back up to the TV.

you probably packet-wrote stuff to the CD, which is the equivilant of writing data to a HD that's unpartitioned; the data is there, but nothing is going to read it without help.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to connect my Dell XPS L702X laptop to my Vizio 37-inch tv (E370VA). I have the HDMI cable going from the only HDMI port I have on my laptop to my tv and it just says Invalid Format on my TV. I have tried all 4 HDMI ports on my TV with same results. I have also tried 4 different HDMI cables with same results. I can connect this laptop to my Phillips 52 inch tv and it works perfectly. I have used the same HDMI cable on that TV with the Vizio TV but it will either say Invalid Format, No Signal and some times it will just be a black screen. I have lowered the resolution on my laptop and tv with no results. It's weird because it used to work, but my nephew one day knocked my laptop over and it bent the HDMI cable so I can't use it anymore. That's why I'm in this boat BUT, like I said, I just connected this laptop to my tv downstairs and it works. And I tried different HDMI ports on the TV just in case that port was ruined since this happened. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I assume you're going thru the wizard on how to create a Data CD, or something like that. Are you dragging the files from the righthand side of the program, to the left, as in the tree?

Also, are you just dragging using the left mouse button, and not the right?

Is that error coming up after you've fully burnt it? If so, you may have some hidden files that need to be copied.

I have been experiencing an odd problem off and on which escapes a clear resolution. Boots fail with the message, "lsass.exe The endpoint format is invalid". The system works in safe mode but fails on a normal boot.

I'm running XP Home, 1g ram, dual 120gb RAID drives, Asus motherboard with onboard networking using Marvel Yukon 88E8053 PCI-E gigabit ethernet.

I've already done the XP repair routine (twice). Applied all updates. This doesn't seem to correct the basic issue.

My most recent fix was to allow windows to reallocate the paging file. This got me past the boot error, but brought up windows with an error declared in Device Manager relating to the network card driver. Removing the driver and allowing windows to scan for hardware fixes the networking issue.

Unfortunately, a reboot again returned to the boot error. Simply rebooting again got me past that but back to the bad driver for the nic. On the reboot after a successful fix, it seems to boot twice.. then lands on the lsass.exe error.

I've looked via Google for others having the same problem. Threre are MANY listed, but none offer up a solution that's definitive.

Anyone have suggestions?

I have two shared workbooks on a novell fileserver. 2 differnet users accessed these two files each running Excel 97. A third person began accessing and modifying the files a few days ago. Since then the two files have become corrupted twice. I have looked at the 3rd person as a suspect but see nothing different about their configs. What could continually cause a workbook to become corrupt?
 

A:Excel file format invalid

I have found that many users can still open these files using Word and I still get this niggling little feeling that for some reason they're saved from Word because mailmerging is often involved. If you can open them using Word, click inside the table that is created, hit Table-Select table, copy, and paste back into Excel. Formatting and formulas are lost.

Sorry, no answer as to the cause--just know it happens all the time. (I think it has something to do with the permissions/releasing of the file on the server.)

... in a dialog with just an "OK" button. Upon click "OK", however, I am send back to the POST screen, and it will keep doing this over and over again until I shut it off.

Safe mode, Safe Mode with only command prompt, etc. won't work either, so I can't edit the registry or uninstall anything.


So... has anyone found a solution to this issue, or is it just up to re-installing the OS?

If I do have to re-install the OS, well... here's the problem...
1. It's a netbook with no optical drive
2. It didn't come with any recovery or OS CDs - so I don't have a copy of windows to reinstall.

A:Isass.exe error/ The endpoint format is invalid

I really can't find anything that exactly matches the error that you give, but "The Endpoint format is invalid" indicates a corrupted file of some sort. Most likely something that uses a remote procedure call.
Try using the last known good configuration for XP.

Start the computer and then press the F8 key when Windows begins to start. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

Use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) , and then press ENTER.

If a boot menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP , and then press ENTER. Windows XP restores the computer to the most recent restore point.

Next thing I would try would be a repair of XP from the CD-Rom.

Boot from the XP cd and when it gives the option to run a repair, use that instead of a reinstall.

I messed up display settings for when I attach a TV via HDMI to my laptop. I set the system to display only on the TV (OK, not a totally stupid idea) and then picked a resolution the TV doesn't support (that was TOTALLY stupid!) When I disconnect the TV, laptop display works as normal. As soon as I connect the TV, laptop screen blanks and TV goes to Invalid Format. I have tried to change display settings through the control panel with the TV disconnected, but as soon as I plug in the TV, it goes back to the bad resolution on the TV and no laptop display.

Is this stored in the registry somewhere? I want to reset the flag telling the system to display only on 2nd display.

A:hat is pixel shader and can we increase pixel shader virtually

Pixel shading is what makes computer graphics seem so real. It works on a pixel by pixel basis, determining the lighting, shading, and color of each pixel - bringing infinite possibilities.

If I'm correct, anti-aliasing, anisotropic filtering, etc will affect pixel shading. For ATI, this can be done through Catalyst. NVidia settings should do the same.

Hi guys,

I'm currently running Vista Home Premium x64 with SP1 and I am trying to install SP2 but I get this error:

"the application binding data format is invalid"

I have uninstalled "Windows Live OneCare" and switched off the firewall and this has had no affect. I have also ran the "System Update Readiness Tool" and this has done nothing to help the situation either. Also tried the "The System File Checker tool". It got to 19% and then said "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation"
Also when I try to install IE 8, I get this error code "800736b2".

I had to do a system restore earlier today as something was causing Vista to lock up and I could only turn the PC off by holding the power button. This has resolved the issue of the lock ups. Don't know if this could have anything to do with it?

Any ideas on how to fix these issues as they are driving me absolutely crackers!

Thanks in advance for any help solving these issues.

I've been having this issue for a while and my computer guy can't help me. I am really hoping someone can help me on this site.

After entering all my info on various websites while registering for a new account, I get an error message "Invalid Email Format". I am entering in the right email address correctly and have used other accounts as well, they are all gmail and yahoo accounts. This is an ongoing problem on my desktop, laptop and now my ipad. I did have a new wireless router installed and don't remember if this problem started before or after, could this be the issue? I can't even enjoy my ipad apps because I cannot register with HBOGO or pandora. I tried registering on shopping websites and cannot do so. It's very frustrating!
 

A:"Invalid Email Format" when registering on various websites

You are using the format <account>@yahoo.com, right?

If you suspect a weird router problem try with a computer connected directly to the modem.

I've read a few of these "invalid format" problems and didn't see one dealing with the problem showing up after windows update.  The original problem was that windows update would not work and run all night. So I followed the steps at this
site:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/windows-7-update-problems-read-this-first/28147a5f-b0b0-480b-bed9-834a2da7a375
After that windows update did it's first run (62 mandatory updates). once they were installed and the computer rebooted is when no picture would show up after the Microsoft logo.  I went back to the Restore Point before the updates and the machine works
fine.  Tried the steps on the link above a second time and the same thing happens.  I am wondering if one or more of these updates are causing the problems.
- I've swapped out VGA cards, changed resolution after booting up in Safe Mode, went into MSCONFIG and shutdown all the none MS updates and lastly I started removing updates in reverse order of installation, but stopped at 52 remaining to send this out to
everyone and see if I could get an assist.  Thanks

I dont know what happened to my computer, but it cant start because of an error.
When I tried to start it, Windows XP Professional loads usually, but toward the end, when it is suppose to say "welcome", and error message pops up. The title is "isass.exe-System Error" and the message says "The Endpoint format is invalid."
After clicking "ok", my computer restarts by itself.
I can still go into Safe Mode, but I just cant figure out whats wrong.

Please help.

A:isass.exe "endpoint format invalid" WinXP

It happened right after I installed the audigy drivers for my sound card......had to go into safe mode and then i just disabled the audigy drivers and poof, it loaded correctly, not sure if has to do with sound card or just a glitch as i installed them.

I've been having this issue for a while and my computer guy can't help me. I am entering the right email address "[email protected]" so the way I am entering the email address is not the issue. I am really hoping someone can help me on this site.

After I complete my registration for a new account using my email address, I get an error message "Invalid Email Format". I have used other accounts as well, they are all gmail and yahoo accounts.

A:"Invalid Email Format" when registering on various websites

Hi
My Name is Kaushal and I work for social media and community Team at Dell.
I would like to inform you that the email address which you already have , you can not register the same email , while creating a new account with any other website.
It has to be different email address otherwise it will conflict with database of any domain.
Just an example: i have an email address [email protected] however i go to yahoo.com and i try to sign up with yahoo.com i would like to create the same email address [email protected] It cannot be created that email address because this domain is registered with ABC.NET already. Hence i would not be able to use this email address with any website you would like to sign up with so you need to ensure while creating a new account you do not need to type your own email address. Try to use different email name.

Thanks

I have a logitech mouse that has a smooth scrolling wheel no ratcheting. I wonder if it was possible to set up scrolling to scroll pixel by pixel rather than line by line. Anyone know?

I don't know if it can be done or not, but I am certainly curious as to why one would want to do this?

I've read a few posts so far about how to fix it and what program to use. Well, I've tried the DMIEdit, but it's incompatible. I don't have the money to take it anywhere so I'm not sure what to do. I'm running a H50-55.

Hi everyone,

I recently accidentally formatted a hard drive. So, I quickly install a file recovery software (EaseUS Data Recovery). Then the result shows that most of SWF files are big in size. I think that lots of my files have been converted or combine with other files. So, how do I recover my files?

A:File format changed into other format after format a hard drive

This may not be the best answer, but I would recover the files first. That is you biggest concern right now. Then try to see what you need to do to fix them.

You can cut and paste the questions below on your New Thread to easily give the answers:

Current Operating System, pre-install ? Do you have a single OS on your computer, are you planning on multi-booting with this installation? Single OS (XP Pro SP3), and yes I want to dual boot.
? Are you multi-booting now? Yes! For reasons I will explain under Current Hardware, at startup I get a prompt to choose from two versions of the same OS (both had been working).
Current Hardware ? How many internal hard drives (HD) are connected to your system? 3
? Are they IDE or SATA? 2 IDE (D: Maxtor 60, G: Maxtor 80) and 1 SATA (C: WD 300). C is a newer drive, used to be G when it was first installed. G used to C. WD had some type of program that could copy drives, so I copied the old C to the old G, that flipped their drive letters. Since then I get the aforementioned dual boot screen for two versions of the same OS.
? How many DVD drives are connected to your system? 2
? Are they IDE or SATA Drives? I assume IDE.
? Any external HDs used? No.
? Are they connected by USB or eSATA? N/A
? Check Disk Management for any HDs listed with a yellow triangle and explanation point? All 3 HDDs seem to be recognized before and after installation.
? Is this a New Clean HD? No.
? Have you pre-formatted the HD? No.
Windows 7 installation details ? Which build number and version of Windows 7 are you installing? Not sure on this one, just got the family 3 pack upgrade at Costco. 7 Home Premium?

A:Invalid IP Config + Invalid BOOT.INI = HELP!!

Just bumping my own problem, begging for some help.

Seriously, I'll be home in and hour or two, but I have no 'net on my PC until I get this figured out.

I have read a few threads, got a couple of things to try (like getting rid of Bonjour and repairing the boot.ini file), was just hoping for a little more.

If I get to post, then it will be about the fix obviously!
