Increase effect of Fn + F5 & F6 buttons

Q: Increase effect of Fn + F5 & F6 buttons

On my laptop the F5 and F6 buttons only change the sound level of about 2% with the Fn button each time. I would much prefer it if each time I pressed it it would change by about 10%. Is there a way to change how much effect the buttons make.

Preferred Solution: Increase effect of Fn + F5 & F6 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.)

As you have a new Dell laptop, it may be better to ask questions about it on the Dell Community users forums. There is a forum specifically for Laptop Hardware, along with software sections, disc drive section, etc.

Home - Dell Community

There are several "user specialists" (Dell calls them "rock stars") and other knowledgeable users. I have "rock star" status but I primarily deal with desktops.

When you set taskbars buttons to 'Always combine, hide labels' in the right click->customize menu, and you have several instances of a program open, it makes a 'stack' effect for each additional instance. I personally find that effect quite ugly, though I do like the always combine option. Any way to disable it?

Here's an example on the Firefox and Skype icons:

Hi Pickaxe, and Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Not really sure about being able to change this unless it is done within the Registry. Personally I like it because at times I forget how many windows are open if there aren't on the desktop.

Hello everyone!

Just made the full switch from XP to Win7 and everything is just fine and running well.
However there's one small thing that I don't like.

I use the standard Aero Skin and would like to increase the Min,Max & Close Buttons in the Explorer Window.

There's between the bottom ledge of the buttons and the bottom ledge of the title bar a small gap (See Screen), that i'd like to remove with increasing the size of the buttons.
Already edited the settings in "Window Color and Appearence" but unfortunely it's not completly to my wishes.
I'd like to keep the gap as small as possible.

It's not the design that disturbs me, it's more a practical issue with some Programs that I use that are docked to the top of my screen, while the titlebar is already out of the screen area.
Is there some Way to change that to my likings?

Thanx in advanced for your help.

A:Increase Min,Max & Close Buttons

I'm afraid there's no way to do that. I just tried and the bit below the buttons got bigger as well.

Oh, welcome to Seven Forums.

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... ;-)

First off let me say that I hope I'm putting this massage in the right place on this forum. Apologies if not.

I felt that some people may be interested in what I found on the Wacom site regarding the ripple effect after I upgrade from 32-bit win 7 to 64-bit. Can't find the page now but when I find such useful info I generally write a text file for my own use and keep it on a partition specifically for my source files collected over the years. I copy it here for the use of anyone who has a desire to get rid of the ripple effect. The procedure is very simple and done in a matter of seconds. Basically you do NOT have to go through all the palaver of disabling servies etc although you DO have to disable "Press and Hold". There is also a couple of registry entries that have to be added to your registry and I'll try and put the file up with this message. Here's the file I wrote at the time I found this solution:

On reinstalling Windows 7 on installing the tablet you are left with a ripple effect when touching the pen to the tablet. To remove this, open Pen and Touch in Control Panel. On the Pen tab, select "Press and Hold" then click Settings. At the top left uncheck "Enable press and hold for right-clicking" and click OK. On the Flicks tab uncheck the checkbox at the top left to disable flicks.
Having done this you now need to add two registry keys to the registry. These are contained in the file W7RippleOff.r... Read more

You may remember I bought a athlon 3700+ Mobile for my desktop, I never wrote how it did because I was unsure. To be honest It did not help as much as I hoped, When I run stalker I get like an extra 5 fps (My old processor was a sempron 3000+), which in my opinion was a very small change for what I thought of as a much better processor. As far as windows goes, it is better, I can open stuff faster and run things smoother, so I am happy. However in the past few days my computer has overheated and restarted itself. I touched the heatsink with my hand, very hot. My computer knowledge stopped when I was about 18, back then with my mates the big fad were water coolers, however I know of copper coolers as well and that is about it.

So my question is this for around the maximum price of around 35 pounds (I am willing to go up a bit if its gonna be good), what the best way for me to cool my processor, with perhaps the possibility of overclocking it too.

Good evening everyone.

I am playing Final Fantasy XI on my laptop and I am getting an FFXI-4001 error, which has been identified as a problem pertaining to my router. Because of my router model, I am being told that to fix this problem, the only way is to turn off the DMZ on my router. I would like to know what DMZ does and what consequences this will have for my laptop and pc using internet through it.

Thank you for your time, have nice day.

A:Need more information on DMZ effect.

DMZ is a setting on a router that is used to expose a single computer directly to the internet, rather than hiding it using NAT etc.

Check for the DMZ setting on your router, and change it to the opposite of whatever it is.

Welcome to Seven Forums katbird. 1st thing to look for:

Mouse Hover Makes Window Active - Enable

Start> In search box type Ease of access> Enter> Make the mouse easier to use> Under Make it easier to manage windows> Uncheck Activate a windows by hovering over it with the mouse

If it's already unchecked, are you using single click to open links? Try this:

Open any folder> Organize in upper left> On drop down menu that opens> Folder and search options> General tab> Click items as follows> Check box next to Double-click to open an item (single-click to select)

Apply and OK your way out

See if either address your problem. Let us know. A Guy

I have a Compaq 3550 running WIN 98. I installed a new video card and could not get past the 16 color display. Eventually I went and bought a new ATI Xpert video card. I installed it and then and then my CD Rom went nuts. Every time I would insert a disk into my CD it would freeze after about 20 second and then give me a blue screen. To clear it required me to power. Therefore, I was unable to install the correct drivers for my video card. I then tried to network to my roomates computer only to find that my network was also not working. After 3 days of troubleshootingfind I decided ti reinstall windows. When attempting to reinstall windows 98 SE I put a boot up disk in my floppy drive and shut down. When it began rebooting something happened and my floppy drive got deleted. When it started up I tried to reinstall my floppy and it was no where to be found. So I restarted and went into the bios where I enable my floppy drive and set the defaults. When it went to reboot my pc seemed to be running ok but I have not been able to see anything on the display ever since. I have tried other boot disks, recovery disks, and everything else I can think of but nothing has worked. I have noticed that my moniter has a flashing amber light which on my system is a power saving feature that is suppost to auto wake when you move the mouse, but it doesn't.
Any sugestions? My PC is a Compaq 3550.

Hi all,
I'm a little confused at something going on with my Toshiba Satelite laptop. I recently updated the RAM from 256 to 1Gb, i wothwhile investment i would have thought. After installing the new memory i rebooted and went to system to make sure all was right and the change had been registered. The Gb of ram was there but now the chip was reading as a 1.19Mhz instead of a 1.8. Now i think i've seen this happen before but can't be sure. it doesn'ty make much sense to me and would indicate a drop in performance surely. Can anyone help me with this and explain whats goin on.

A:Effect of additional RAM

Are you sure it was 1.8ghz before upgrading the Ram ? All I can think of was that the FSB got lowered to 100mhz ( 12 * 100 -> 1.2ghz ) when you added the extra Ram & that you need to set it back to 133mhz ( 12 * 133 -> 1.6ghz ).

i tested my initial pre-installed ram on my ram. a mere pc2700 ddr 266 512 sodimm.. it kept stalling while i was playing WoW =/

anyways. i tested it twice, error on both test # 7 of Memtest86+ - i yanked it out.

i'm just worried about any bad reprecussions from having that bad ram. I've been using the laptop since january - same ram.

i've never had a blue screen of death. it's never crashed. i run defrags every other day, and clean the crap outta it (software wise) daily.

idk, is there anything worth worry?

A:Error on ram, effect on pc as a whole

Yeah, I guess if you like stability there is a reason to worry. If you can deal with an unstable system then you are fine. Memtest doesn't just flunk a stick of ram for something to do. Something isn't right. Could be CPU, but more likely a bad stick of ram.

I'm not sure if it's a placebo effect or not, but I just finished installing that huge update to Windows 8.1 (~950MB) and now, for some reason, CPU intensive tasks seems a lot quicker.

I've also noticed that gaming is smoother since the update.

Has anyone else noticed this, or am I just experiencing a placebo?

A:Placebo effect?

We periodically release updates for Windows to include new features, the latest security protection, and the best drivers and software. Windows 8.1 Update and Windows RT 8.1 Update include improvements to make Windows more familiar and convenient for devices that use touch and mouse input and to make Windows available on a wider variety of devices, so you have more to choose from. Windows 8.1 Update and Windows RT 8.1 Update also include security and performance updates, and they must be installed for your PC to receive any future security updates for Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1



Im not sure on exactly what performance updates they mean, but it seems to be working for me too.

"The negative effect" I assume you mean the colors are backwards, white is black, green is purple, etc, etc

If this is the case there should be a strange key on your keyboard that looks like a white A and a black A. Usually you hit the function key then hit the other reverse key to change the colors around.

Otherwise... you will need to find your video card settings and mess around with the gamma section majorly.

If i have 512mb ram in one pc and another pc is using 1GB ram and motherboard + processor speeds are same, then what role high RAM pc will play?

Will he give me more faster performance?

A:Ram difference effect on PC

simple answer...yes, the PC with 1gb will run a bit smoother and efficiently.

RAM is an active storage where data is being passed through it, or readily available for use. If your RAM fills up, data must be retrieved from the hard disk, which is slower. Higher RAM allows for greater multi-tasking and can ease some high graphic loads.

I would like to seek some assistance and hopefully you'll be able to assist me with this.
What happened is I saw a pop-up on the browser telling to download Xvideo to play it in HD. I click download and install it, so during the initial setup, the installer's status is downloading, then it prompts me to install ClickPotato, Before the clickpotato was completely installed, I cancelled it. However even though it wasn't successful, after that event my computer always lags. Moreover, if I'm going online, I observed that my Drive C always drops its free space to 93MB space free! That I have to run ATF cleaner everytime to return it's free space back up to 29GB. Is this normal?

By the way additional information. I observed that the Red Light in the system unit is always busy. It always on steady Red light, it's not flashing.

Moreover, sometimes the CPU usage rises up to 100%

Please help me recover the good health of my PC. Thank you!

A:After Effect of a Trojan, Need Help

Greetings, and welcome to TSF!

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Right click on this link http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/DelO15Domains.inf and choose Save As. Save it to your desktop. Right click on that file and choose Install. It will run immediately (you won't be able to see anything happen). You may delete it afterwards.
