Preferred Solution: Buttons

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.)


Several times now, when I start my computer, everything seems normal. But when I try and click on the start button, a quick launch button or a task bar button - NOTHING HAPPENS. I just get a ping sound from my speakers.
Sometimes a restart fixes the problem and sometimes I have to turn the computer off and then on again to get it to work correctly.

Does anyone know what could be wrong and what I can do to fix it.

If anyone has acces to the connections/schematics for the M4600 touchpad/button assembly, I'd love to see them! For some reason both the right buttons have stopped working. Tried to disconnect/reconnect  the 14 pin "touchpad cable from the mainboard, but unfortunately this did not do the trick. Need to look a bit deeper - so would love to see the schematics or at least the pinout of the connector(s)... (It's a button - how hard can it be to fix... ;-)
Thanks and best regards,

Hello everybody,

I have joined the forum recently. I have a problem with IE 6 which started just a few days ago. When I open multiple windows I can see only four buttons in the task bar. If I open the fifth window I do not see it in the task bar. Earlier I used to see an arrow at the end of buttons by clicking which I could see the other buttons. I do not see that now. I could also see 7 to 8 buttons in the task bar before the problem started. Thanks in advance.

Q: buttons

edit: oh darn. html is on in here. darnit. how can i show my code.

original message before i did that edit
hello. i was wondering if there is a way to make this windows button into a gif instead. meaning..you know those buttons right? the grey boring ones that say "submit" or whatever.

i have been able to customise one with css to try and match my site. but i still dont like it. main the text doesnt match.

so i'm wondering if there is a way i can make it so i dont have to use a button, and i can use a gif instead.

heres the code i have right now that i'm using.

<INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE="Google Search" style="font-family:verdana; font-size:13; color:81a3dc; background-color:274d8a; border: solid 1px #000000; cursor:hand;">

its the little google thingey they allow you to add to your site.

i have managed to customise it to look like this.




it doesnt show much something odd with host but you can kinda see what i did.

i replaced the yukey old google gif with one of my own and tried to do the same with the button that says "google search" however i can't so i tried editing with css but it just doesnt match like i'd like it to. so i'm just wondering if theres a way i can just use a simple img src code and put in a gif or jpb and it would still work like a butt... Read more


ok, a few things:
1. yes you can do this by using: input name="Submit" type="image" src="yourGifLocationHere"

2. This only works with single buttons. If you wanted to have both a submit button and a clear button you would have to use JS to get both to work.

3. It must be in a form tag to work. But it should already be in a form tag.

Hi aca85, you want to activate 3d flip without touching the keyboard ? yes, it is possible . Dunno why anybody else suggested this to you till then .

1. Right click on desktop > new > shortcut
2. In the new shortcut box, type
%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe DwmApi #105 ( copy and paste)
3. Click next, then click finish.
Double click on it and see what happens

Wanna change the icon like that in vista?
1. Right click on the new shortcut ( shown as rundll32) > properties> change icon
2. In the look ofr icon ... box, write %systemroot%\explorer.exe and hit enter
3. Select the fifth icon in third row. Ok ,apply ,ok.

Place in taskbar? Just right click > pin to taaskbar.

If this is what you want Then you should have replied wihhin this time, I think I am describing another process. It's so common

I am using 7 on a sony FJ1S. Everything works, except for S1 and S2 buttons (buttons for rapid choice). On sony sites is possible to download only drivers for XP (obvoiusly it's impossible to install them), impossible find drivers for vista or 7...
Any solution???

A:buttons S1 S2

Actually it isn't impossible to install the XP drivers...

If you download the driver and run it as an Adminsitrator: Run as Administrator and also run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP Service Pack 2: Compatibility Mode it *might* install

I am not promising anything...but it is worth a shot isn't it?

What do the various F buttons do?

A:F buttons

Fkeys functions are assigned by individual applications. For example, in many point/click adventure games, F5 is the "Quicksave" button while F1 is the standar button to launch a "Help" screen.

They also serve different fuctions on boot up depending on your system manufacturer.

If any one is having problems with IE 6 not showing buttons on the web, it will be necessary to download and install Java completely. I almost went nuts trying to figure it out.

Hello. There are a couple of things one can do to try to solve an audio problem when one does not know what is causing the problem. The first thing is to reinstall the audio driver:
1. Open the Device Manager2. Expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section.3. Right click on the audio driver and select to uninstall.4. Do not put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software.5. Restart the laptop and Windows will reinstall the driver, but with the settings back to their defaults.
Another thing is to use Windows System Restore if you have a Windows operating system. Find a Restore Point dated from before the cat walked on the laptop. Windows System Restore will fix certain system changes.
A third thing you can do is reset the laptop back to the original factory configuration.
If you need more help, include the full model name of your laptop and which operating system it has. Without knowing those things you can only get generic advice.

hi everyone,
i'm looking for a little bit of help please, here is what i want to do:
i want a button on a word document that when clicked upon generates a random number between 1 and 6 and displays it. when clicked again, a different number is generated to replace the old one. i'd like the button in the document so that i can take it to different machines. the document in question is an adventure sheet for 'choose your own adventure' style books, and the random number is a dice roll.

i've tried googling and so forth, but unfortunately it appears that i have no knowledge at all in this area and the existing tutorials on command buttons or macros seem difficult to implement. if someone knows how to do this i'd be really grateful for a plain english explanation. i'm fairly quick with concepts and computers, so i'm pretty sure i won;t be asking for a million clarifications !

many thanks,


A:command buttons

Welcome to the Seven Forums!

You're going to need to make a macro using Visual Basic for Applications. Don't worry, it's built into Word (assuming you have Word 2000 or newer). Fortunately, I have some experience with Visual Basic (as do some others around here). If you can tell me how you want the button to display the number (in a message box, somewhere on the page, etc), and what the label on the button should be, I should be able to tell you exactly what you need to do.

Also please let me know which version of Word you are using.

most confusing issue i've had in awhile. I work at a company where we've placed several help desk calls for the same issue within the past week. we are running windows xp and ie6.0 - the back and forward buttons in IE have disappeared. I've gone into the toolbars and added the buttons back onto the bar but they are greyed out. This is only happening with the backwards and forwards buttons. we have multiple employees working on this issue but cannot come up with a resolution. This isnt happening to all users just randomly popping up at different sites we support. please assist!! thanks in advance!!Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Ie Buttons Greyed Out

Since it's occurring over the different sites that you support, then I'd guess that it was something that each site has in common. Perhaps a registry edit or a Group Policy setting?

Try reinstalling SP2 on the systems to see if it clears up the issue. Or, try installing IE7 to see if that fixes it (you can uninstall it and revert back to IE6 fairly easily).
