Q: how do you turn off the auto adjust in windows 7?

it automatically adjusts my mic lower if im talking to high. but really the person cant really hear me unless its on full blast. help plzz.. theres gotta be a setting or something in the registry. i need some pros help plzzz. ive tried lots of things still no luck.

Preferred Solution: how do you turn off the auto adjust in windows 7?

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.)

Good afternoon,

I need help please. For the past week I keep getting a blue block saying auto adjusting on my screen. This happens every few seconds. Also a blue block saying mute on - mute off. This also happens all the time. Sometimes the mute block will go on for a couple of minutes flashing on - off all the time. I have checked in the control panel and the mute is not ticked.
Thanks alot

Welcome to TSG!

Does your monitor also have built in speakers?
Try resetting your monitor to Factory Defaults.
On my LCD, Factory Reset is the last item on the main configuration screen.

There may be a separate reset for the Audio, so check that sub menu if you have one.

Is there any way to make my computer stop adjusting my mic levels for me? Any program that I use to communicate via microphone has this issue. I have removed the option to allow applications to take control. I use skype and the google chat phone service most. I turned off the auto adjust option within skype. I use a cheap USB headset, and it didn't have any software that came with it. I am pretty convinced Windows 7 is a control freak and won't let me decide my mic volume at this point. Is there anything I can do?

A:Microphone Auto Adjust

Sound Properties - Communications tab. This option is when Windows detects communication activities.

I purchased a Dell XPS400 at the end of last year with a 20 in flat screen monitor. For some reason, whenever the computer doesn't shut down properly, the monitor is constantly auto adjusting. Once in a while it will get stuck with everything moved to the left and some icons and the START button are missing.
I figured out out to fix it but I want to know why it happens. Anyone???

Welcome to the forums

On your monitor are some buttons. If you see one that says menu, push it. Use the up down arrows or select buttons and move thru the menus til you find something that says autoadjust and turn it off. Let me know if that helps...doc

On my monitor screen there is a message flashing, Auto Image Adjust and I worked on it for 5hrs. just to find where to go and fix it. I don't know what this message means or why this happened? But this is what I tried.

I pushed the buttons on the Monitor:

Pushed 1 for main menu,
Went into setup menu
Went into Resolution Notice
Pushed Enable

I'm still getting this flashing message, that turns my screen light green.
Now, I tried looking for other ways to turn off this message, but I could not find it.
I even went into the Setting, Control Panel, to find a way to do it from my hard drive.
Please help me find the off button.

This is my situation. As shown in the diagram below, I have my webpage set up wherein the default page has only the banner section fixed. The content is iframe A, and as an item is selected from the menu, it is loaded into this frame. The content in iframe A is the menu bar and this content does not change.

My problem is that the different pages (items in the menu) all have different heights. I have had to make the two iframe heights = 4000px to make it long enough for my longest page but this leaves long areas of white space when the other shorter pages are loaded.

Is there a way to detect the length of the page being loaded into iframe A and adjust the height value of both iframe A and iframe B accordingly?

I have a dual PC system setup. Both my CPU's are Dell and i have had them set up this way for a while. All of a sudden the other day whenever i switch between the CPU's (scroll lock 2x then arrow) or on restart or when i turn the CPU's on i get Auto-Adjust and it lasts like a good minute or so. I updated the drivers, un-installed and reinstalled the drivers on BOTH of the CPU's and i did a self test, neither of these things did anything. I made sure that both computers have the same settings too. I know for sure this is a monitor specific problem but i cannot firgure it out.

I just installed a new monitor in my computer and when i turn the computer on the screen brightness and picture is perfect for about 5 to 10 seconds.

Just got a brand new Gateway LCD GATEWAY and it was fine for the first 2 days until I played a 3D game, then it asked me would I like to Enable the Resolution reminder and I chose yes, and now I am UNABLE to disable it...because when I go to the Resolution Reminder menu on my screen the SELECT button isnt there, so I cant select disable, the checkmark constantly stays on ENABLE..here is a screenshot from the gateway website RESOLUTION REMINDER there you can see that the SELECT button which should be between BACK and UP clearly isnt there, so its not as if my screen is faulty, cuz this is a screenshot directly from their website which must mean all these LCDs come like this. so now any resolution I choose gets AUTO PROCESSED to fullscreen mode, meaning it gets stretched and heightened to fit my whole screen, even if I choose the lowest setting available 800x600 it stretches all across my whole screen.. which as u can imagine looks very very VERY ugly!!! One thing I would like to point out that might be an issue is that I am using Analog plugs, I had to use a converter from my XFX 6600GT cuz the card only has two DVI outputs, so I used to provided converter to switch it to analog and plug it into my screen, cuz I read sumwhere that depending on what plugs u have going from your vid card to your screen the resolutions are different..
any help?? cuz I sure couldnt get any from the numerous Gateway support agents I spoke too..

This is a tough one.
I installed PowerDVD 9 on an HP DC7600 loaded up with fast components and full 4gb memory, using the default/onboard Intel graphics.
It played gorgeous - everything looked great, and I didn't tweak anything.

Installed a Geforce 7300 gs card, setup the drivers, etc, adjusted gamma et al using the Nvidia control panel. All static video looks outstanding.
BUT , when I run PowerDVD 9 now on the same movie as before, something looks odd... its like, previously it looked good up close - everything very smooth and brilliant. Now it looks good from a distance, but up close it looks "overdone" - like the colors overshoot a tad, and it seems that the edges of fast-moving images are getting some noise.

What I'm really wondering is whether PowerDVD bypasses the video card, or uses it??? if the latter, does it auto-adjust something when it first installs? And if so, do I need to uninstall & reinstall?

thanks folks

About a month and a half ago, I noticed all my desktop icons were on the left side of the screen in alphabetical order. Turning Auto-arrange off or on does nothing. As soon as I refresh or restart my PC, the icons revert back to the auro-arrange display. We have four user on my PC and oddly enough only my account (which is the admin - not sure if that matters) has the problem. I've read a number of old posts (1-2 years old) that discuss accessing the registry. I'm fairly adept with this thing but I'm not looking to do open heart surgery. Any ideas?

Hello, recently my computer showed a windows security alert in the right hand side of the task bar. It said that windows automatic update was turned off. I clicked onto the windows security center and it would not let me turn auto update on. A message will sometimes pop up that says something like: "Windows is unable to turn on automatic updates please go the the control panal, click on system and turn them on from there." This message does not appear every time. When I click control panel>Performance/Maintenance>system>auto update, I apply the change and hit OK but nothing happens after that. Automatic update remains off after trying what was suggested.

I have also been getting the same pop up about once every 5-10 minutes (sometimes more) that says "unable to connect to server" with the url:

You know how when you have a Windows' window that is partially off screen and you move the mouse over that window towards the edge of the screen where the window goes off screen how Windows automatically moves the window back fully onto the screen? What's that feature called?

And, more importantly, how do I turn it off?

A:How do I turn off that feature which auto moves windows on screen?


I'm not sure what you are wanting to turn off about that. As far as I know, it's not possible to disable the ability to Restore/Move an offscreen window back.

Ok.. I really need some help here.

I have had Battlefield 1942 Pc game for about a couple of years, and it works fine, no probs or anything. lasnight I was gaming, and as the map was loading, the screen looked about a millimeter to the left, so I pressed the 'auto-adjust' button on my tft moniter, to find that the screen had gone really wierd. I done a system restore, un-installed it and found that I could't re-install it because of this error message. I scanned the registry with a program and fixed the problems. I installed it, and found that I still had the same problem. I have also tried

also, I tried pressing print screen to take a screenshot, but when I pasted the image into an image editor, it looked how it should look, not fuzzy at all. I just thought it might help. I had to take a picture with my camera to show you instead.

Everytime I run Spybot S&D it finds a virtumonde.prx trojan. I've been having lots of pop-ups through Explorer. I switched to Firefox, but some popups are still happening, for example to cleanuptool.com.
I'm also having trouble getting my automatic updates turned on, I've tried several suggestions found on the web with no luck. I tried going to the microsoft site to upgrade, but when I enter an address into Explorer, Firefox takes over and goes there instead. I've done the services.mrc run command and turned automatic updates to auto, but it just reverts back to disabled. Through Control Panel and System, it says that auto updates are on, but I have a red shield in my toolbar that says it's off.

I installed Spyware Blaster, Spybot S&D and iespyad. I had AdAware, but uninstalled it when I started using Spybot.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Every now and then as I use the computer, all windows disappear and only the desktop is showing.
I know this is supposed to be helpful somehow, but I find it incredibly irritating and want to turn it off.
I think it's got some gimmicky name, but I can't recall it right now.
Hoping somebody knows what I am talking about, and how to turn it off....

1. Screen Tearing, while gaming I notice horizontal flickering lines in the graphics. I've tried turning on v-sync and I've tried the adapive mode in nvidia control panel. Also tried using v-sync in the visual menu of the game its self. yet nothing works. Still screen tearing.

2. MICROSOFT WINDOWS 8.1 PRO 64-bit - I'll get a (POP-UP) in the right hand corner of the task bar. Saying to turn on Windows Update because its off for some reason. So I do that, then 10 secs later it pops up again asking the same thing. I've tried all the trouble shooting programs and options to fix windows update none really work some say they fix 2 things one says it fixes like 4 or 5 things. I also tried rebuilding the update services thinking its corrupted but that did not solve the issue.

3. Just like the update error I get a (POP-UP) saying I need to verify my Microsoft password. And I did but it still pops up. So I changed my password and yes it still pops up saying I need to verify my password to my Microsoft account.

Could anybody help me with this?

Using the laptop on battery, when I press on F11-12, the brightness meter is shown on the upper left like usual, but it won't move up or down.  Yet I think it's strange that all other places I can adjust brightness are fine, and especially strange that everything is working totally fine on AC power.
I tried uninstalling the Generic PnP monitor and reinstalling, but to no results.  Also, both my power settings on battery and on power indicate no adaptive brightness.

hi,im running windows xp home edition with sp2. To turn off my pc,i usually click on start in the taskbar,then the options to stand-by,turn off or restart appear,I then click on turn off,and the pc does the rest,it turns the pc off and the monitor. Now when i go through the process of turning it off, i do everything as described above,but instead of shutting off,it just acts as if i did nothing,i am left staring at the desktop and can just continue to use it as normal.So i have come to the conclusion that some sort of virus or something (i am doing a virus sweep as i am writting) has turned off the auto shutdown function,What i'd really love to know is can anyone tell me how i can turn this feature back on,i also forgot to add,that u cannot log off either,the same thing happens,so i would be really greatful if anyone has any suggestions at all,Thanks for your time
