Solved: No Picture

Q: Solved: No Picture

A couple of nights ago I tried to turn on my comp and their was sound and everything, just no picture whatsoever. It's a SLI setup and I've tried starting it up with each card by itself. I've made sure that it's plugged into the monitor well, and used two different cables. My question is, Motherboard or Video Cards? I updated the drivers about a week before this happened, but would that keep anything at all from showing up (no start-up sequence even shows up)? I'm due for an upgrade anyway but you know how the prices are out there. Any help would be very appreciated! Thanks

I have found this BUG in Micrososft Word 2007, that I consider to be a SERIOUS ISSUE for Microsoft Office Suite.

If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

A:Microsoft Office Word 2007 picture paste Bug *same picture is repeated

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would not advise pasting images in doc files like that,
I would use ms Paint to paste or save picture as
I would really recommend using the windows snipping tool to get the images that way no bugs are being transferred to the machine or programs,
Then use the Insert image option in word...
It's just a safer way to do an operation,

Hi all,

Super bizarre.

So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

any ideas or leads ?

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

It turns out that if I download a picture file to the photo app in 8.1, without putting it in a particular pre-existing folder, the file goes into the general area of the app displayed alongside several other non-related pictures. Okay, no problem. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to then move a single image file into one of the pre-existing folders I had created at an earlier time. If your suggestion is to open both the folder and the picture file side by side on the screen and then click and drag, I have no idea how to do that. Is there no way to right-click the image and find a way to select "move to", or something along those lines; or is there a pull-down menu that I can't find with the app open that contains a command to "move to"?
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,
San Francisco

A:How to move a picture file on 8.1 to a picture folder...

Well, you have many options. What you are looking for is this:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder - Windows 7 Help Forums

But you can just copy the pics and paste them into the folder you like.

The side by side is easy too. Just open the source folder and press WIN + Right arrow. Then open the target folder and press WIN + left arrow, Now you can drag and drop from one folder to the other.

This photo was taken at a Foo Fighters gig in Birmingham UK last year. I waited in the freezing cold for an hour to meet dave grohl, however, when it came to, my sister had been friggin around with my camera, and it messed up the photo. Whereas, I took her photo and it turned out as clear as day.

This is certainly a new one to me. I'm trying to watch a few videos I downloaded. RealPlayer is playing the sound, but there's no picture! Could it have some to do with my settings? Or is this a new form of DRM? They are personal movies, not copyrighted stuff. So I doubt that's the problem. But you never know. Any ideas?

A:Solved: No picture

We can definately rule out the whole DRM thing. Because I just downloaded and watched the videos on my father's computer. And he has the same OS as me (Windows XP SP2). It's obviously my computer that's causing this. Incidentally, I'm also having trouble getting my AOL media player to play video. Again, it plays just fine on my father's computer. I've tried the obvious stuff (making firewall exceptions, changing preference settings within RealPlayer itself). What else can I check?

It seems to be mostly WM files that won't play the video (only sound). Please help me! This extremely frustrating for how much I've spent on this computer.

When I find a picture in internet explorer and I save it on my desktop it says no preview available. But when I save the Picture to a folder it shows me the picture. Is this normal???

A:Solved: Picture

The problem is that you are trying to use a thumbnail in an icon only
area. This does not work. The desktop will only display Icons. It
will not display thumbnails.

If you want to change the folder icon to something else then you have
to change the icon in the customize area. Changing the thumbnail
image does nothing to the icon on the desktop. However once you
change the thumbnail image and then go to the desktop folder in
Explorer and choose to view thumbnails then you would see your custom
folder there. But you would still only see an icon on the desktop.

A:(Solved) Desktop Picture

Where is is located depends on how it was set to be wallpaper, and what version of Windows you are using.
Also what it is called depends on how it was set to be wallpaper in the first place, it may have been named "Internet Explorer Wallpaper" or some other helpful title.

Without even a minimum of information, we are guessing blindly.


What version of Windows?
How did you set as wallpaper?
Where was the original photo file located when you set it as wallpaper?

or try this:

Control Panel - Display - Desktop - select the current wallpaper - browse.

Now it should be showing you just where the wallpaper image file is (Windows version dependent for this to work however, so guessing)

I am using an ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 with 2 monitors.

Last night I had to uninstall and re-install the ATI software; for some reason I had lost the Capture Driver. After re-installing everything worked fine. This morning I turned on the computer and the monitors did not come on. I turned them on manually and they give a "NO SIGNAL" message. Is this a coincidence? Could the re-installing of the software cause it to not even show the BIOS bootup screen? I'm totally lost as to what to do. Install another video card - I may have one still around somewhere?

Any help would be much appreciated. I'm not at home now but any advice will be taken when I get there this evening. I do have a second computer there so I can respond to any comments, questions, etc.

I have suddenly for some unknown reason got a icon showing in the bottom lefthand corner of ALL my pictures, see attatchment... I have not done anything or added any anything to cause this. It appeared from nowhere.

A:Solved: Picture Problem on XP

Andrewt3, You're probably using Norton 360. The link below explains those icon overlays and how to turn them off if you want to.

A check in a green box means the files backup is current, while a chevron () character in a blue box indicates a file thats been changed since its last backup. Files excluded from the backup set display a slash in a gray box.

If you dont need the backup indicators feature you can turn it off by clicking Settings in the Norton 360 main window, disabling the Backup Status Indicators check box and clicking Close.

i installed norton antivirus today and when i restarted my computer a message came up saying " there is a problem in the display settings. The adapter type is incorrect, or the current settings do not work with ur hardware." so my photos on the computer are very bad quality.

A:(Solved) bad picture quality

Norton anti-virus has probably screwed your video card settings:
First thing to try is..

Right Click on Desktop, and choose properties.
Then choose the settings tab.
Check that your colour quality is set to 16 bit or 32 bit on the drop-down menu.

This is the most obvious solution, but if there are only 16 colours as an option your driver has been corrupted.
Then you would on the Settings window, go to advanced and then adapter.
From here you would click on properties and go to driver, click on update driver and point to the cd-rom holding the driver (specify full path).
Restart computer and that should be you operational.

That's when I tried different Quicktime suggestions (checking plugins, installed ActiveX update for IE) but still nothing.

Motherboard asus P5K with intel p35 /ICH9 chipset
Video card nvidia gefource 8800 gt
2nd video card ATI Radeon X600
OS windows XP Pro

I was given my father-in-laws computer and wanted to do a fresh install of XP to get rid of all the stuff he installed that I didn't want.

Everything was going fine until I installed net framework 2.0, which a message from the ATI card said I needed in order for the card to function properly. When framework was installed and the computer reboot everything when black after windows loaded. When I tried to reboot the computer everything stayed black. Not even the original Asus screen shows up.

My question is what can I do now? I'm happy to get rid of one of the video cards and do another clean install of windows if thats what I need to do. I don't have any important info on here yet. Thing is, I can't do that if I can see.

A:Solved: No picture, not even at startup, what can I do?

Not even the original Asus screen shows up.
Click to expand...

OK, if you are not seeing the splash screen, you have a hardware problem not a windows problem or .NET problem. Windows is not even in the picture until after post completes.

Start with some basic troubleshooting;
1 Open the case and pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical
2 Reseat the pw atx and aux atx connectors on the board
3 Remove the ati card and use just the 8800
4 Clear cmos or as asus calls it RTC. Read your manual for detailed instructions regarding clearing RTC

Now pw ON and see if you get a display and if the board will post. If not, then you are going to have to swap parts with known good ones ie mb, ram, cpu, pw supply. If it does post, then shutdown and connect devices one at a time until you find the failed part.
