Monochrome interface in Win XP?

Q: Monochrome interface in Win XP?

Dear all,

I am not sure whether this is the right forum for my question. Excuse me if not.

Anyway, my question is - is it possible to change the whole Windows XP interface from color to monochrome on a "regular" laptop computer? If yes, then how? In the old days, it was possible to do it under the display settings if I remember correctly; but now in my present computer, there are only two choices: 32 bit vs 16 bit.

Why would anyone want to do such a thing? Just because. There is no particular reason.

Brgds,

Operput

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.)

I`ve had a 2x 27" monitor setup ever since I got my laptop about a year ago. One monitor is connected via Displayport, the other one via VGA. I keep the lid of my W520 closed so I only use the two external monitors. Today I had my laptop unhooked from my workstation and now when I try to hook it back up again the screen that is connected via VGA shows up black and white.  Here is what I did while my my laptop was unhooked from the monitors:1) Took it to work as usual (it didnt drop or anything like that so I dont think it would`ve got physically damaged)2) Installed a new battery (just arrived today, Lenovo original) Here is what I tried to get the issue resolved:1) Update both integrated and Quadro 1000M drivers2) Switch monitors (the one that is connected via VGA is B&W always)3) Switched to a brand new VGA cable4) Restarted my PC multiple times5) Fiddled around with the settings under "Screen resolution"6) Checked VGA port - cosmetically it looks like it always has (no damage or anything like that)7) Switched back to old battery and tried everything again Please help me out! I would hate to have to take my computer to a hardware specialist because I am just out of warranty and I cant really afford professional servicing. Since I`m pretty sure nothing got physically damaged, what other software fixes could I try?  Thanks in advance!

When I try to print a photo, I check the settings to make sure it is in color, but when I select color, it reverts to monochrome when I go to print. This happened before and I cannot remember what I did to fix it. I think it has something to do with photo

I am looking for a method to run my system in black and white; not all the time, but only during certain circumstances (i.e. when focusing on writing or dedicated reading). Is there any way of doing this on a computer running Windows XP that does not require any programming knowledge or implementation of difficult solutions? Any solution that requires significant extra memory usage or WinXP visual themes probably isn't going to cut it. I'm looking for a way to do this that converts my entire user interface to monochrome temporarily. Is this possible or is it just an anachronistic pipe dream?

I am using a Dell Latitude D400 laptop running WinXP Pro SP2, with Integrated Intel Graphics.

Hello shoeshinesally and welcome to TSF !

Depending on your video drivers you may be able to play with some color saturation settings in the advanced display properties, but I don't think you'll have much luck with an integrated intel video.

You may find something that suits you in the high contrast modes in the accessibility options :
http://www.microsoft.com/enable/trai...hcontrast.aspx
Click settings to access different color schemes.

Or some shell replacement utility could have a black & white color scheme. Be careful when installing one of these, make sure you've got the right one because they can be a pain to remove.

Hi!

I'm building multiple interfaces (forms) in VB.NET. How do I make a button in my first interface which I'm calling "Main Menu" take me (or the end user) to other interfaces in the program? in other words, how do I make end users go back and forth between forms? Also how do I make the "Exit" button close the form? What kind of code do I need to do all of that? Does each interface has to be in its own project or is it possible to build multiple interfaces in one project?

Thank you.

not sure how to preview my system specs on these forums but when i use speccy to view my system information my sata hard drives show up as having an IDE interface. can anyone tell me why that is? is there something in the bios that i need to change? here is a screen of what i am seeing. thanks in advance any help is appreciated.

A:IDE interface?

Is there anything wrong? No. Is it worth switching it to SATA mode? Not really. The small (if even noticeable) performance increase isn't worth it, even more so when making the change on a working OS install can render the OS unbootable. This is one of those settings that is better to be set when the OS is installed than after.

P.S. You're also the second (at least) person to ask this same question this week,

Speccy won't recognize my hard drives as SATA. Should I be concerned?

If you do decide to make the change there is a link to a tutorial that will show you what you need to do before making the change in the last post.

My friend and I are making a custom computer in a gutted retro turntable. The turntable includes a CD player we gutted out and we wanted to use the slot the CD player was in for a DVD/CD-RW drive. The problem is that the drive doesn't fit very well in the slot so we decided to use a slim disc drive, similar to the ones in laptop computers. We found a few on newegg.com but we are not familiar with the interface for the drives. Here's one we are thinking of using.

look on newegg for slim cd drives to see the interface.

Anyways, we've never seen the interface before and we don't know enough to find or build a converter. Can someone help us?

We were also thinking of getting a slim external drive and modify the USB or Firewire interface to connect directly to the motherboard's USB or Firewire pins. The problem with that is that external drives are pretty expensive and we will also have to find the pin connectors.

Hi Caliraj,

I read the webpage in wikipedia about multiple inheritance, and here is an excerpt:
Multiple inheritance can cause some confusing situations, so there is some debate over whether or not its benefits outweigh its risks. Java compromises: it allows a class to inherit interfaces from more than one parent (that is, one can specify that a class inherits all the types from its parents and must have all of the same externally exposed methods of its interface-parents, and allow the compiler to enforce that), but can inherit implementation (methods and fields) from only one parent. Microsoft's .NET languages such as C# and Visual Basic implement this interface approach as well. In contrast C++ implements full multiple inheritance.

You might be able to find a good example at codeproject.com You'll have to search for it, say: interface & java. The article, 28. Dynamic Inheritance, has a java example that can be downloaded - i.e. you might need to join the website (free) to download.

For those of you that have used the Windows 8 RC for a while, what do you think of it? I've heard of many referring to it along the lines of Windows Vista 2. How do most of you feel about the new OS.

My main concern is Microsoft's insistence that every version look the same. The whole "tile" interface turns me off in a major way. If I had a Windows phone, tablet or a touch-screen laptop, I'm sure it would be cool. If you're using it on a "regular" desktop or laptop, I really fail to see the point and don't want to use it. Is there a way to totally disable this interface and get a more traditional Windows experience, ala Windows 7, with a Start button, Start menu, program groups, regular desktop, etc.?

I hate to miss out on the awesome upgrade price if I'm going to upgrade, and I've not missed a version of Windows since Windows 3.1 (even Vista) but if I can't turn off the tiled interface, I may skip this version.

I've also seen quite a few gaming videos showing Bioshock, or Bioshock 2, I can't recall which, refusing to run under Windows 8, along with several other "recent" top-shelf titles. I realize most of these were running on RC versions and things may well change before the final version hits the shelves later this month but, compatibility issues with relatively recent titles, coupled with the tiled interface doesn't leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling about this new OS.

A:Not sure I like the new interface. Any way to get rid of it?

Unfortunately, for those of us who are not enamored with this new start screen and such, there isn't a way to disable it from Microsoft and get it back to the way that it was. As far as a start button goes, there are options for that, but they do involve third party tools. Check out this tutorial;
Start Menu - Restore in Windows 8

It's a real mixed bag, some are just blown away and think the interface is refreshing, intuitive, stylish and uber cool, and there are others who dislike it enough that we plan to forgo the new features of the OS simply because we don't want to use it this way.

Okay here's the deal. I was surfing the web on Saturday, when all of a sudden Spy-Blaster pops up and says that something is trying to change my registry. So I block it...well the windows keep coming as it tries again and again to attach itself to my machine. Thinking it's coming from an outside source I rip out my Ethernet cable to interupt it. No go, Soon new windows are popping up non stop. So in a blind panic I do a manual shutdown of my PC.

When I started it up again my Icons and start bar would appear and reappear. Watching it I believe that it was trying to load something over and over again and when it couldn't do it, it just crapped out. So using the task manager I went and scanned it with AVG and Spy-Blaster. Spy Blaster found about 9 things. So I deleted them, then I ran it again in safe mode, and I deleted about one more. So I hopefully restarted it and still nothing. Is there anyway for me to figure out what's doing this? I don't have any recovery disks or Windows Boot disks so starting over might not be the best thing for me.

Run a bootable virus scanner and scan the hard drive outside of the windows environment. Here's a link to a list of different ones to choose from.

http://antivirus.about.com/od/freean...avrescuecd.htm

Then use a different computer or a friends computer to burn the Rescue disk. You don't want to use your problem computer since it's probably infected. With the Rescue Cd you can then scan the whole drive without running the potential malware along with booting up and running Windows. This is because the system boots from the Rescue CD and doesn't run Windows.

Hi, I have not been able to install a USB sound card/audio interface on my laptop and get it to work. The following is copied from my post at an audio forum. Hopefully, here there might be someone more savvy regarding these issues. Thank you so much in advance for any help you can offer. I've been using computers for years. I get by but I don't fully understand all the issues. I'm very good at following directions though!

The offender is a Behringer BCA2000 USB digital audio interface. The install seems to go fine, but no sound goes to the computer. Cubase says, "Cannot initialize Behringer ASIO driver". The unit shows up in the device setup box though. I tried it in another program too - same thing, it shows up to choose in setup but doesn't work. It shows up in Device manager under "sounds" and the control panel shows up in the tray. I downloaded the latest manufacturer's driver. Also tried previous driver. I have USB 2 and the interface is USB 2 (can also be switched to work with USB 1).

I have a Toshiba A75 laptop, 3Ghz, 60gb, 700mb ram, XP SP2 (recent sp2 upgrade installed from sp1 via Microsoft automatic thing. Windows says it went ok).

I sent my system information to the tech at Behringer and he talked to others and sent back some recommendations.

We don't really know why they told you that without some additional information. What happened when you tried to burn the disc and how are you trying to do it?

Hello 8Forums, I'm new here (unless this is 7forums :P). Pleased to meet you

I was about to post this in the tablets section however, I'm not very sure.

My only disagreement with Windows 8 is when I don't have a touch interface to navigate through some parts of the UI. I am hoping to upgrade this PC from 7 to 8 once I get an answer if it's possible to link a tablet as my third interface hardware aside from my mouse and keyboard.

I don't mind the always plugged/charged aspect of the tablet if needed as I am at the moment making a new desk and will be including a tablet mount in the design. This thought came as I had once been shown by a friend of mine (who's overseas somewhere right now) that he did it but perhaps that was done remotely through an app?

If possible

Are there any limitations to this (tablet type branded vs china made?)
Input Lag?
(Prefer not to bluetooth it to my mobo. USB connection to constantly charge it and in hopes for the best latency)
Cost?

Regards,
Shawn

Edit : Just realised there's no psu listed in the spec list. Plenty of overhead at the moment 1200W powering Xfired 7970 DCU2T

Recently I been seeing the latest interface M.2 go yet again to another level, with speeds up to 32Gbs! Im wondering how they do it, and if you really could take advantage of such data transfers which looks pretty promising on paper..
 

A:Ultra M.2 interface

The secret is that they use the processor?s leftover PCIe 3.0 lanes to feed it, so it runs as PCIe 3.0 x4 (32Gb/s) which is over three times faster than the others PCIe 2.0 x2 M.2 (10Gb/s) and five times faster than mSATA (6Gb/s). You can find it on the AR Z97 Extreme6 model.. is there any others?
