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.

Hello Technonuts,

Nice name. Seems like this is an issue with your screen resolution:

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...isplay_change_screen_resolution.mspx?mfr=true

The above article should help fix this issue. However, you just go to the control panel and you will find the "display" icon there. Inside there you can change the resolution.

In Word for XP when I typed st or th after the date, following a space the font would automatically reduce in size and appear top right after the date. I can not see how to set this in Word 2007 although for some reason it is doing this in Outlook. Can anyone help please?

A:Reduce size of font for th and st after date.

one way is to write the "th", highlight it and then press "CTRL+Shift+=" this will raise it to superscript, as in 4th..
or you can highlight the "th" and tick the superscript box in the right-click pop-up via the font options..

- in both cases you need to undo it again, otherwise the type will continue in superscript..


Not sure how you would set the default date format to do it every time, as there doesn't appear to be an option for setting it

I'm running WinXP SP2, Internet Explorer 6. It seems that something has set the font size on buttons and some of the headline text to a very large size, and the text size button doesn't fix it. The body text will reduct to a minute size, while the buttons, headlines etc will remain giant. Can anyone help me return it to the original state? Normally I use Firefox but there are a few sites where compatibility is an issue and I really need to have access to IE6.

Hello. I have an acer windows vista computer. It's about 6 years old. Last night I increased the size of the font so that my MIL could read the print. Today I tried to return my font to it's original size (large) and I don't get the option to "apply" the changes. I went into control panel--personalization---adjust font size. I choose 120 DPI but it doesn't give me the option to apply because the font is too big and that option isn't even visible as I'm sure it's below my toolbar at the bottom.  
 
I called microsoft and after him taking control of my computer and searching around for a good 20 minutes he told me that I would have to pay $80 to fix this problem, optimize performance, yada, yada, yada. 
 
I've googled how to do it with no luck. I even tried youtube and no luck. So as of right now up a creek without a paddle.  
 
I am attaching a picture of what my screen shoes on the "adjust font" page. There is nothing below the writing that you see i.e. an apply tab since the font is too big. 
 
I've even tried safe mode but I can't find a resolution there. I hope someone here can figure this out. You all are HERO'S for those of us who are clueless.

When I play Free Mahjong Planet – a simple game--on my HP 530 Laptop, its Core temperature climbs to 70°C.
I use Speedfan to monitor the temperatures.
During any other activity Speedfan records between 50°C and 60°C .
As far as I can find out the processor – an Intel Duo T2500 2.0 MHz running Vista Business – should have a maximum operating temperature of 40°C.
Can anybody help me?
 

A:Solved: How can I reduce the temperature in my Laptop?

Intel CPUs have built in temperature regulating systems, so that the CPU will never actually melt; all that will happen is that the system will slow down and eventually halt. Check out this video for a comparison between Intel and AMD http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=9AQmuUEDxGI

Also how to cook an egg on your CPU: http://www.phys.ncku.edu.tw/~htsu/humor/fry_egg.html

In short, don't worry about the CPU temperature unless your system is showing signs of drastically slowing down.

Hi,
I am using Laptop 160GB HDD ,GB RAM, AMD TURION N550 processor.

My processor cooling fan runs very fastly from booting time and emitting hot air continually.

1. I changed bios settings as defaults.
2. Changed OS.
3. Cooling fan is clean and clear.
4. No dust in air Ventilaters.
5. CPU Temperature 54'C.

I don't know how to rectify this kindly help me anyone.

here i show my air outlet view of my laptop.

A:I want to Reduce my Laptop processor heat

Was this problem posted earlier or something else to do with your laptop. Now 54C is not really unusual for a laptop unless it is just idling or surfing the net. A scan will produce those sorts of temps.

I am not sure if I said earlier it could have been someone else but
1. Shine a very bright light into the air intake and make sure the fan is freely spinning and when stopped is not smothered in dust it is sometimes hard t see in normal light.
2. Look into the air out let and see if the slots on that radiator are clear or not.

If these are ok then it sounds like the thermal compound on the CPU and GPU has dried out and become ineffective in which case you will have to renew it.

What model of machine is it please?

Hi,

Just having a weird problem with Windows 7. When I am using earphones or my laptop speakers and then I close the lid on my laptop, it causes a great reduction in the volume of the sound output automatically.

While the laptop lid is still open, the volume on all programs remains normal.

However, when I close my laptop lid, it seems Windows automatically reduces the volume.

Let's say I put the volume on my laptop to 40/100 units in the sound mixer. All programs I am using are set to use the volume the sound output device is using, so everything else is also at 40/100 units, including Media Player Classic.

I am usually using Media Player Classic to play some FLAC music. I usually have earphones connected, but this issue recurs without them as well.

When I close my laptop, in about 2 seconds the sound volume will automatically reduce to 5/100 units in the Volume Mixer in the taskbar. This sound reduction also only applies to the program I am currently using to play music (e.g. MPC or iTunes, the two which I've tried so far).

After re-opening my laptop, I check the Volume Mixer and it shows only MPC or iTunes sound output is reduced. The system device speakers will still be at 40/100 units volume.

This is really frustrating, because I like to turn on some music, and then close my laptop so I can study, but I find I have to constantly adjust volume, because Windows is deciding to automatically adjust the volume for me... which I simply don't need... I understand how i... Read more

A:Windows 7, Closing Laptop Lid causes volume to automatically reduce

Hello,

I was able to resolve this by the following:

Right-Click the sound icon, and click "Playback Devices". There should be a tab that says "Communications" on the very right. If yours shows "Reduce the volume of other sounds by 80%", setting this to "Do Nothing" will correct your issue, as it did for me (this was irritating me just as much as it did you).

Recently my computer has started displaying giant pixels anytime I want to start up a computer game like The Sims or Trickster. For a while I thought it was just 3-d games that were not working but then I tried playing a 2-d pixel game, and I had the same problom, here is a screen cap of what I am talking about.

The computer that I am running is a eMachines T3256.
It has a nvidia GeForce 4 MX graphics card.
Is there anyways that I could fix this with buying a nother card, or downloading something, or will I have to take my computer in to someone to fix it?
 

A:Giant pixels, I need help

Re The Sims (original?) - your card should be able to play that

Re Trickster - your card doesn't support DX8 for 1.1 pixel shaders so probably cannot play that

Re the pixel problem - uninstall your present nVidia dtrivers in Add/Remove programs, reboot, and install the latest drivers.

edit: if the l;atest drivers don't fix it, uninstall them and try one of the 53.xx series - they apparently could, with hardware assisted software emulation, support vertex shader model 1.1.

Hi carol, you would need to reduce the image size in a graphics program, like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro. Adobe Photoshop is rather expensive, but Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are arouns $100. There are free image editors out there, I just don't know the names of them, try going to http://www.download.com and look under the graphics section and there should be some editors there you could either download for free or atleast get a free trial to see if you like them.

I can't think of anything that exist within windows. It wasn't necessarily designed to be used on 40" LCD from 10' away in the way you are using it. That's why Windows Media Center's fonts are so much bigger.

A:How do I increase letter font size on my new laptop?

Hi, You may try this: Hold down the Ctrl key and press + (plus) sign few times (press minus sign will make text smaller). OR you can use these steps: To make the text on your screen larger or smallerOpen Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution.Choose one of the following:Smaller - 100% (default). This keeps text and other items at normal size.Medium - 125%. This sets text and other items to 125% of normal size.Larger - 150%. This sets text and other items to 150% of normal size. This option appears only if your monitor supports a resolution of at least 1200 x 900 pixels.Click Apply.To see the change, close all of your programs and then log off of Windows. This change will take effect the next time you log on.Regards.

Brand new ASUS laptop, running brand-new Windows 8. Totally default.

The font is huge. It's so big that my yahoo calendar doesn't show Saturday, I can't tell if it's the ASUS hardware/software, the Windows 8 OS, the screen resolution.

To resolve the issue, I've spent a LOT of time trying to fix it. I went to the Win8 personalization screen to discover that I could only make the font as small as 100%, and I fussed around with all the type choices MS allows. Nothing works. I upgraded to 8.1, but it never completed, at least according to your sysinfo. Not that I care, unless it would fix this issue.

I understand that the various apps control their own font sizes, but this setting is generally global. Yahoo/World of Solitaire/SFGate/Google. Your site is fine, except for the heads--ditto for Chase.

Looking over your old threads, ASUS had the opposite problem in 2010--the font was tiny. No one solved that issue.

The sysinfo is below:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3217U CPU @ 1.80GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101203 BRI/1 Firefox/3.6.13 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0E)

Windows XP at home and XPPro at work.

It has happened on both computers.

Just curious as to what this is and what I did to make it appear and disappear.

A:Giant Context Menu

Hi,

I know that sometimes default settings get changed by accident. If you want you can try and change the settings for the browser. If you hold down the CTRL key and then use your scroll wheel you can change the size of the text on the page. I can look for a more permanent solution for you if this doesn't work.

Cheers!

Is it just me, or do you think IE is consumed with advertisements? Is there a good option to eliminate all the popups, popunders, and continual video/audio ads?

By the way, I just bought a new laptop with Win8 so I'm struggling with my mind as I transition from Seven to Eight. . .

A:Internet Explorer - A Giant AD?

Use the Desktop version of Internet Explorer and add the two EasyList and two Fanboy Tracking Protection Lists from the following link. After added, the lists update themselves automatically.

Internet Explorer Gallery

You can also change what pop-ups are allowed by going to Internet Options > Privacy > Pop-up Blocker Settings. Personally, I block all pop-ups and then whitelist any sites that I want to allow pop-ups from (or CTRL click links to open in a new window and bypass the pop-up blocker manually).

I was super excited to see the 4th Gen X1 Yoga released, but so dissapointed when I looked at the pictures.That giant bottom bezel. What is going on here? Who in their right mind released that in the year 2019?All the other manufacturers seem to be slowly cottoning on what the market wants (hint: not 16:9), yet here we seem to be stuck with completely wasted real estate on the laptops.It just makes no sense, the market is all about trying to get bigger screens in a smaller device.The easiest way to do that is to put a 14" 16:10/3:2 screen in a 12.5" body. Does Lenovo have any official word on this? They have so many unnecessary overlapping models, yet not a single offering that has what we all want. The XPS13 2-in-1 with the 16:10 screen is going to decimate sales.I've stayed true to my 8 year old X220 which is still going strong, yet unless something gets announced by Lenovo by end of July, it's bye bye lenovo from me.

Hi there

I'm a sucker for these strategy sim games, so I bought Hotel Giant, (Sold Out Range). I have installed it successfully but it won't run.

It looks like it's about to start, and then just jumps back to the desktop and nothing else happens. It does not crash and I don't get any error messages.

I have written to the support team but they never bothered to answer, so I'm stumped.

You guys are always so cool at helping me out, so was hoping you could help me get the game to run instead of it just jumping back to the desktop.

Thanks again

A:Solved: Hotel Giant (Won't Run)

Okay, I unticked the compatibility option altogether, and the game started, it got to starting the tutorial then froze and jumped back to the desktop. So i'm back to square one. Still no error messages.

Hi

I have had a virus installed on my computer called rebate giant. It has 2 files on my desktop (one called rebate informer and one called rebate giant). I know how to remove files through the registry editor and was wondering if anyone had the file paths for me to manually remove it??

Beth

A:Rebate informer/giant

I don't think rebate informer/rebate giant qualifies as a virus. It looks as though it installs an Inbox.com toolbar and some desktop shortcuts. Uninstall the applications, and the toolbar, and delete the shortcuts if they are left behind.

There are no files in the registry, but there are references to files. Be mindful of travels in the registry.

My browser has been getting larger and larger.
Now it is almost unusable it is so large.

The text is half an inch tall.
The icons and graphics are huge!

Everything on my desktop is still normal.
(I keep my text, etc. rather small)

I am typing short lines in this message
because my browser area is WAY
larger than my screen.
It takes 3 scrolls to see the right edge.
HELP!

I accidently did this:

"The user Eigenaar, has decided to prevent a change to

How can I undo this?
Because now I can't use some of my programs, or install

I just got a new Gateway All-In-One Touchscreen computer. Every application I open, however, has these huge close minimize and maximize buttons. I was fine with them before but now they get in the way of Firefox 4's UI. Is there a way to make them normal. Picture of the Buttons here. Thanks.

A:Giant Close Button

Please load the picture onto this site using the attachment button. Though this may be a coincidence, my AV (Norton) flared up moments after entering the site. Thank you.

I just installed WIN XP on a virgin harddrive. I don't like icons on my desktop so I like to use quick launch for recycle bin. my ISP and Internet Explorer. When I checked quick launch my taskbar grew to double its size. No matter how I moved or squashed it, it was either gone or double, but never the normal size. As soon as I uncheck quick launch I can compress the taskbar back to normal. Ideas and fixes welcomed.
 

A:the case of the giant taskbar

Have you got large icons selected for the quick launch taskbar?

To check, unlock the taskbar, then right-click on the quick-launch bar, and from the popup menu choose view, then large or small icons. Small icons will return the taskbar to normal size if this is what the problem is.
