Q: Solved: What are these for (picture of my question)

Can anyone tell me what these two sockets are used for on the back of my PC.?
I'm kind of hoping, although I don't have a clue, that I might be able to plug in 5:1 surround sound speakers.

On the picture, can anyone confirm what these sockets are and what they are used for.?

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.)

Looks kinda like a capture card to me. You can use it to capture videos or still frames from VCR's, TV's etc. But, lets see what others say. Also, what kind of computer is it. You may be able to look it up, or have someone else look it up and see if that systems comes with something like a capture card.

Hi All,
Firstly many thanks for your time in reading this question,

My issue is that in picture gallery when i open it it shows ALL my picture on the computer and i am not sure how to stop it from doing this, on my wives laptop it only shows pictures that are placed in the picture file/folder.

For example if i drag a new folder on to my desk top containing pictures thery are indexed directly in to picture gallery, I would like to stop it from doing this as when i do the drag a drop on my wives they aren't shown in picture viewer libary they are just opened with it.

Hope this is enough information to fine the correct button to reset!! I am sure that you can all deduce that I am in now way technically gifted!!!

Any assitance with this question is gratefully received.
Many thanks all

I'd like to know if there is a way to turn off the auto zoom on scroll feature of Windows Picture Viewer?

eg. When i view a picture at its actual size (by pressing the view at actual size button) when its at its proper size if i scroll the mouse wheel then it zooms in or out of the picture, but i just want to scroll down the picture not zoom in or out.

So is there a way i can make it so that when im viewing a picture at it's actual size i can use the mouse wheel to scroll up and down it without zooming?

If it isn't possible to do this can someone please tell me a picture viewer that will.

Thanks alot.

A:Solved: Windows Picture Viewer question

it doesn't make sense to do what you want? If it is actual size what about scrolling left/right?

download Picasa by Google..try the Beta version, it has a separate viewer, you can just use the left click to drag the image.

Hi all, do you know if it is possible to word-wrap text around an inserted picture in Word 2003? Basically, I'm trying to create a class reunion program with a one-page bio of a person with his/her picture in the upper right-hand corner. I have pasted a picture and positioned it where I want at the top; however, it forces the text below it downwards, which is not what I want. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Solved: Word 2003 - Insert Picture/Word Wrap Question

Select the picture

Make sure the mouse pointer is hovering over the picture and click once with the right mouse button

Click once with the left mouse button on the menu choice "Format Picture"

Select the "Layout" tab

In the section called "Wrapping Style" click once with the left mouse button on "Square"

Beneath where it says Horizontal alignment click once with the left mouse button on "Right"

Click on OK

You should be able to type text to the left of the picture.

Hi I'm new to the forums but I have a quick question about the media center picture library. I should probably inform you first off that I'm working on my xbox 360 media extender/center. I download all of my Album art and keep it with the music in individual folders. for instance my Nine Inch Nails albums are in individual folders with the album art in those same folders.

Now the question is, do I have to add those pictures to the picture library if I want to add my music? It seems to me that if I add a folder it adds everything in the folder which causes some problems for me. I simply don't want to view my album art(along with all my other pictures) when I hit "play slide show" under music>play all, as I'd like to have some pictures come up while I'm listening to music.

I have a dedicated folder for art I'd like to have on display when I listen to music. Now if there is another way to do this I'd definitely like to hear it as I've been trying to do this for a while and am getting slightly annoyed...

In XP, when I opened a picture, it would open the WPFV (Windows Picture and Fax Viewer) and I would get an unobstructed full screen picture (default). Now with Vista, the picture viewer has an extra toolbar across the top and the bottom toolbar has doubled in size (not the taskbar) making the picture much smaller.

Is there anyway I can get a full screen picture with just one slick like WPFV. I can do my editing with another program. Right now I'm just looking for a simple "one click" full screen picture viewer.

I would consider a 3rd party viewer if anyone knows one that fits the bill, but I would prefer to stay with Windows.

All suggestions appreciated.

Firstly I'd like to apologize about the erractic appearance/disappearance of my screenshots.
I justed installed the Windows Live Essentials 2011 and while checking on my Skydrive ( part of WLE ), I accidentally deleted some images that I had posted in this forum as screenshots.Then I realized that my Skydrive is a link to my screenshots. I hastily tried to replenish the missing screenshots and made a mess of them. Sorry.

Now to my other issue....
I have selected a picture as my profile. But, I don't see it appears in the threads to which I had replied.
I can see the picture in my profile file, just not appearing in the threads.
Someone please enlighten me ?
Thank you.

A:My aplogy then my question about my profile picture

Don't worry about the picture thing - we've all done stuff like that. Any thread where it being missing becomes an issue or is questioned, just fix it if/when that occurs and if really necessary and that should be fine.

The profile picture just appears in your profile page. The picture in the threads is called the avatar and that's what you need to add to put a picture in the threads.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Opening any file to edit , once done you should select " Save As "  and rename it , then the Original would stay intact / or as it was.
If you just select "Save" it will Prompt you to Overwrite the original = y/n.
You have to be more clearer what your friend is trying to do , or yourself in explaining the actual problem your having , or what you need to achieve.

I've got an HP Omnibook 4100 laptop that recently puttered out on me--or, more accurately, the monitor did. Well...the monitor itself works just fine, but it has for some reason pretty much lost the signal from the computer to the screen. Occasionally the picture will come on (usually not for long), and the backlight functions correctly which leads me to believe it's not a problem with the monitor/LCD screen itself, but rather, with a connection between the computer and the monitor.

Anyway, I took it to a computer repair shop. The guy there said that he would venture to guess that there is a bad "connector" (didn't specify what connector), and that the particular connector that had gone bad is usually a weak point in most HP laptops. However, they wanted $42 just to look at it, not to mention what it would cost them to fix it, so I figured I'd better ask someone for help and see if I or a skilled friend can fix it for much less. So my question to you all is, what do you think the problem could be? If it's a bad connector, can you give me some information on what type of connector has probably gone bad and where I can get a replacement? Also, is there anywhere that I can obtain a diagram of the guts of this particular laptop so I better idea of where this "connector" might be?

Per someones suggestion here to a question I posted last month, I got a ASUS VE278Q Black 27" 1920x1080.

I am really happy with it over all. I have one question / concern. Since I got it, depending on the exact angle I am viewing it from, it seems a bit off at the edges, most noticeable to me every day is that it looks like there is a bit of a shadow on the task bar along the very bottom edge of the screen. This lessens if I view it very straight on, but is noticeable when I am looking down at the screen, even at a slight angle when sitting up in my chair.

The other time I have found it is very noticeable (even when looking directly at it) is if I have a black screen that runs up to the side of the monitor. I took some photos. It actually looks a bit worse in the photos than it does in real life.

Left edge of screen with a black background active on the screen.
Bottom Right of task bar, notice how it appears a bit dark / shaded below along the bottom edge.
Right edge with a black background active on the screen. Doesn't look this bad in real life, the camera made it look worse.
Another, longer (taller) shot of the right edge.
Shot of full screen.
I made a very short video trying to show the issue also.

Any thoughs as to if this is a defect or if this is normal for this screen?
