Q: Help req with monochrome bitmap

Hi,

I'm having trouble saving monochrome bitmaps.
Is this a 'known malfunction' ?
Or am i doing something wrong ...

The 'shading' function gets lost and turns to black.
Its ok til i save it, then it loses the 'Shading'

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.)

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`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!

Hi,

I have a dell D610 running XP with a SVG and a VGA output on the back. I need to display the screen on a cctv monitor that only has a BNC input. After some digging around I bought an s-video to BNC lead, full of confidence I plugged it in and got a monochrome, blurry image

I am a little confused, does anyone know what I should use to get a high resolution colour image on my monitor ?

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.

A:Looking for obvious or creative way to run OS in monochrome (black/white)

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.

Q: bitmap

Hello!
First time question!
I'm having a problem w/saving animations (moving) in the body of my emails. I highlight them, right hand click & save as picture, when that box pops up, the only selection I have is a bitmap. (will save still but not a moving animation). The people sending them to me have no problem saving animations & have a selection, gif, etc.
Also If I copy the animations then paste them elsewhere, I get a red X and it won't show the animation.
I phoned Microsoft support and they said it was a operating system problem. I have Windows XP.
Any ideas how to solve the problem?

A:bitmap

First thing to do is to clear out your temporary Internet files.

In IE, Tools - Internet Options - General tab - Delete Files - OK to the box that pops up - OK when it's finished.

Post back if that does not help (try a reboot afterwards to be sure)

This week I had to replace my tower. I've been using Windows98 for over two years. I was told by the salesmen that ALL new towers come with Windows XP now and boy am I sorry. I've been trying to download photos from the net and I'm only given two options when I click save or save as...."ART" or "BITMAP". I could always download these on Windows 98, but I keep getting..."Cannot read heading". I even went to Irfanview and installed the Irfanview 3.70 with the plug ins, thinking this would remedy my problem. I STILL can't save a picture...even though when it downloads in "MY Pictures", it says it's been saved as JPG or JPEG. I click open and it says, "Cannot open" "File document not found". Is it impossible to download pictures from the net using Windows XP?

My mother has a dilema on her computer. She is running Windows 2000 and said that she has an icon on her desktop that says Bitmap. When she clicked on it to open it up - Paint was displayed.

Where should this be stored off of desktop and how do we accomplish this task to get it back to where it belongs?
 

A:Bitmap (Paint)

First, right-click on the icon and select properties. This will show the path to the executable file. If it is mspaint.exe, then this should be moved under c:\documents and settings\all users\start Menu\Programs\Accessories (assuming that the OS is installed on C). To move it, open explorer and navigate to that folder, then using the right mouse button, drag the icon to the folder area on the right pane. When you release the right button a menu will appear, select move.

If the icon does not point to mspaint.exe, then post the results of where it points back here.

Hi, there. I have no idea why this happened, but recently, whenever I attempt to click on a jpeg, gif, etc, on the internet, the automatic default popup is "Save as .bmp". I didn't change anything, so I am very puzzled. When I click on a jpeg, I want to save as a jpeg file, and on a gif, as a gif file, and so on... May I ask how this happened and how to correct it? Thank you very much...!!

Hi,

If this occurs, it usually means that your Temporary Internet cache is full.

Go to IE, tools, internet options, general tab and delete all temporary internet files.

But also have a look at the following MS article:
