Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Two days ago I turned my computer on and where my sidebar gadgets should be there were black squares and rectangles. My clock was square with a black face and not working. I tried installing different gadgets with the same results. I bought this computer on 7/31/08

I bought lenovo b3 series 3 days ago n not it doesn't start normally , i hv to start the pc in safe mode n then i can use it, why?


Safe Mode is for trouble shooting only. I would take it back immediately if it's new.

You should have never had to use the disc, being so new. Unless it was a floor model?

I don't know how to use my calculator on my dell desktop for calculating square yds. and feet


In the Windows calculator application located in the accessories folder in the start menu, you can calculate square yardage by using area formulas such as length times width for a rectangle/square. To enter this with a keyboard you would enter (the length)*(the height) as long as your units are in feet or yards you will get the answer in square feet or yards. The Windows 7/vista calculators have built in conversion factors for yards and feet that can be found by pressing view>unit conversion.

How do I get the little temperature icon to stay on my task bar? I used ot have it, but it is gone now!


Is it a detached Weather gadget from your Windows Sidebar? If you have the Windows Sidebar icon on your Notification area (system tray), right click on it then click "Open"(or Bring gadget to front). Your Sidebar should appear on the Desktop. If you don't have the Temperature gadget showing click on the "+" sign on the top of the sidebar. Double click on the Weather gadget. Then you can drag it to a location you want on the Desktop (or you can right click > Detache from Sidebar). To change the current temperature location, right click > Options, type your location on the "Search for location" box.

( OR )

If it is NOT a 3rd party gadget that you downloaded from the web, then just click the + sign at the top of the sidebar ( sometimes it's on the side ), a popup box will open up, showing a list of gadgets. Tempwerature shold be there.
Right click at it > click Add.
It will re-appear at the sidebar.
