Hi there,

Barring anything 3D stuck to the screen, try this:
My secret weapon...... Newspaper.

Serious. Use any window cleaner and a crumpled up sheet of old newspaper (black and white only). Have a couple sheets ready. Spray, wipe with one, dry with the second. It doesn't leave anything to evaporate, therefore, no marks. Works great on windows and mirrors too.

I can't tell you why it works, it just does. Try it with the leisure section. If you find it works as good as I say, please take a moment to rate this response. Hopefully, I didn't sound too much like a detergent commercial.

Regards

I can't log in to my account on my Dell PC?


Now which operating system are you running ?

Forgetting your Windows XP login details might at first seem like a disaster. Don't panic though; your login password and username are easily recovered by changing the login details to that of the administrator.

Begin with your computer turned off, and then turn it on. You will need to log in to your computer manually and this can only be done in the load-up screens. Wait until your computer reaches the Windows login screen. The screen usually displays a "Welcome" message. Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Delete" keys two times at the Windows login screen. Your computer will automatically reveal a Classic Login box. Type "Administrator" (without quote marks) into the "Username" field and leave the "Password" field blank. Windows automatically creates an Administrator account when your computer is first booted up; in this account you can alter or change any user's login details. Navigate through the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel." In the Control Panel explorer, double-click on the "User Accounts" icon to open a new window. Select "Change an Account" in the User Accounts window and select the username you want to alter. From here you can edit the user's name and password, but you can also alter the user's picture, account type and .NET password. Restart your computer to login with your new username and password.

How To Clean Laptop Screen With Household Products?


<p><b>Cloth</b> - Only use a 100%-cotton cloth that is soft and absorbent, either an old T-shirt, sock, or Turkish towel. Make sure you're not using a cotton/polyester blend that contains stiff filaments which can scratch an LCD's surface.<br /> <p><b>Note:</b> Paper towel or facial tissue should never be used because they contain wood fibers, also hazardous to LCDs, and definitely are not how to clean a laptop screen. Also remember to never use a dry cloth on your LCD monitor. Dust particles moved around with even the softest cloth could create scratches.<br /> <p><b>Liquid</b> - The best way to get a really clean laptop screen is to use isopropyl alcohol, containing 91% pure alcohol, with 9% de-ionized water, readily available at any drugstore or supermarket. It's perfectly safe for use on electronic equipment and LCD screens because it evaporates quickly and does not leave a residue. The lesser strength isopropyl alcohol 70% is used primarily for massage and muscle pain.<br /> <p>A 1:1 solution of distilled water and isopropyl alcohol 91% can be used to clean a laptop screen that is not heavily dusty or soiled with greasy fingerprints. Vinegar and distilled water in a 1:1 solution can also be used for light cleaning.<br /> <p>Certain household liquids should never be used on LCD's. These include ammonia and tap or mineral water, which leave permanent white spots and streaks. Household window cleaners should be avoided because they might contain ammonia, or other harmful chemicals which also can cause irreparable damage.<br /> <p>Another caution is to never spray a solution directly onto an LCD. Always spray the liquid on a cloth, only enough to moisten it slightly, and then apply to the screen in gentle, counter-clockwise motions.<br /> <p><b>How To Clean Laptop Screen With Special Cleaners?</b><br /> <p><b>Kits</b> - Micro-fiber cloths and anti-static solutions are packaged together and sold at office supply or electronics stores. The special solution leaves a slight film that protects a clean laptop screen, repels dust and smudges, and keeps it clean longer. The liquid should be sprayed onto the cloth, which only needs to be slightly wet, not dripping, when applied to the screen. There's a slight disadvantage to these kits. Certain solutions cause streaking, so it's best to do a little research before investing in this method.<br /> <p><b>Micro-fiber</b> cloths can be purchased separately and used with isopropyl alcohol 91%, and/or distilled water. Whether using the complete kit or the cloths alone, make sure the packaging designates the product is ''safe for laptops and LCD screens."<br /> <p><b>Anti-Static Cloths</b> - Many computer manufacturers, when asked how to clean a laptop screen, recommend anti-static cloths made specifically for cleaning without liquid of any kind. These cloths are formulated for advanced optical technology and are considered the best way to clean, polish and protect a laptop screen. Even greasy fingerprints can be buffed off using these cloths, readily available at electronics or office supply stores.<br /> <p>Similar cloths are made for cleaning camera or eyeglass lenses, and these can be found at any drugstore, optometrist or camera shop. Anti-static cloths are the quickest and easiest solution when you want the most advanced and easiest method to both protect and clean a laptop screen.<br /> <p>The above options offer a variety of easy and safe ways to care for your LCD monitor. With simple maintenance on a regular basis, a laptop screen will last for many years.<br />

Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from hp.com or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.

I put a snow leopard disk into a old slot loading 600 mhz IMAC running 10.4.11 with the intention of upgrading it. Now I'm getting a gray screen with flashing question mark. I didn't do anything but insert...


Try restarting and holding down the command and C keys at startup. This should eject the disk. If that doesn't work, restart with the mouse button held down. This is also to eject the CD. If it doesn't boot correctly after the CD is out, restart holding command, option, O and F. This should bring up an open firmware command prompt screen. Type in "reset-all", without the quotation marks, and press enter. This will restore the PRAM and NVRAM to factory defaults and should allow normal booting. It may take a bit longer to boot the first time after you do this.

I need to purchase an internal power unit for my Philips LS1400 - how can I find out the technical specifications for the unit?


1. Load the first system recovery disk into the CD-ROM drive
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q
8. Press Q to quit the Recovery Window (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

*I have found that there is no need to Select "Advanced Options" prior to pressing Alt + D.


Procedure to recover from "Code Purple" WITHOUT a Recovery Disk Set:

If the Recovery Partition on your hard drive is intact, this should work:

1. Turn on PC and repeatedly press F10 (pause for a second between key presses) until the Recovery Screen comes up
2. Press R for the recover console
3. Press Alt + D to bring up the command prompt*
4. at the C:\minint\system32> prompt, type "del h:\hp\bin\configcheck" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
5. At the "Are you sure?" prompt, type "y" (without the quotation marks) and press enter
6. At the prompt, type "exit" (without the quotation marks) and press Enter
7. Press Alt + Q (The PC will automatically begin to boot. You should now be free of the Vastly Evil Code Purple.)

My fingerprint reader won't work. When I set it up it takes my fingerprint three times without a problem. When I'm done inputing the fingerprint and finish it asks for one more to...? At that point I get a...


if this is a reader that plugs into a usb port there are a few things that are problematic with them. They use a suspension that is very sensitive to heat if you leave your reader in the usb port the power from the port causes it to heat up and fail. The other issue is the speed of the port, Most software uses a redundancy software that verifies the image by what they call checksum points. If the speed of the port is to slow this will cause a misread. When not in use don't leave it in the port remove it and keep it cool. Good luck.. Be mucho Blessed..Mark

Computer can not see external drive


Depends on the os and connection method of external. If using XP or Vista, use the control panel - system - hardware - device and check for it there. If there is a yellow or red mark next to it, it didn't install properly. leaving it connected, uninstall it on the device screen. Reboot. When the system detects it, load only the driver for the os U R using.

I need to know how to clean the LG flatron L1953T screen without damaging it in any way? should we just used windex or not? it has been wiped with a damp cloth and now has water marks.


Please do not use Windex. Use Anti-Static Monitor Wipes for LCD screens. Using Windex or other cleaning solutions like it will cause streaks on your screen. Damp cloths have the same effect as Windex.
