Question about Computers & Internet

9 Answers

I just bought a W3653 last week and I've 3-4 questions. First, I'm 70 years old, had open-heart surgery 20 years ago which pretty well zapped me of any short-term memory and I am basically computer illiterate. I can't remember two thongs at a time and I must write down everything. I need to know how to get my speakers working, do I have to subscribe to some type provider to play DVDs, does this machine have a word processor, and how do I print an e-mail or anything else???

    Well I re-checked to make sure spkrs. were hooked-up right, i played around quit a while and installed adobe. I would like to know where I can locate some sort of pictures showing me what the icons on the back of the computer means. One has a box then tow spaces in front of it is two more...one on each side. Another looks like a Tulip or maybe an RCA plug. Is there a way to print screen at any given time or anyother doc. I might be reading?

Hi,

Your concerns:

  • "how to get my speakers working" - depending on what type of speakers were bundled with your eMachine W3653, the speakers may either be connected as shown below:
  • I just bought a W3653 - eba368e.jpg1b87a27.jpg
  • "subscribe to some type provider to play DVDs" not needed, a CyberLink® Power2Go™ is pre-installed;
  • "word processor" - the computer came pre-bundled with Microsoft Works® 9.0 and a 60-day complimentary trial period of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 both have word processors;
  • "how do I print an e-mail" - pressing on "Ctrl" and "P" keys normally would instruct the printer to print;
  • "pictures...icons on the back of the computer means" perhaps below image may help. A more comprehensive and detailed guide is available here.

In some instances, the computer may be set to accept the speaker connection at the front
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The tiny program that allows you to select Yahoo! Mail as the default email application for your PC is included as part of Yahoo! Toolbar version 7.2 and up for Internet Explorer (not Firefox).
If you don't have Yahoo! Toolbar v.7.2 or later for Internet Explorer installed, you’ll need to download it before proceeding with these instructions.
We’re sorry there’s not an official version for the Mac—yet.
Here’s how to set your PC to open Yahoo! Mail when you click an email link on a web page.

  1. From the “Start” pop-up menu in the lower left corner of your desktop, select “Settings” > “Control Panel”.
  2. In the Control Panel, select “Internet Options”. This opens the “Internet Properties” window.
  3. Click the “Programs” tab along the top.
  4. Click the “E-mail” pull-down menu, and select Yahoo! Mail.
  5. Click OK. Done!

Heres what you gonna do sir, if you do have a speaker and you want to connect it to the computer. it has a jack like left and right(diagram 2) or maybe like this single jack (diagram 1). on the back of your computer which it has an interface it of your audio(diagram 3). also at the back of your computer you may see a 3 jack slots. it consists the mic(left side), speaker (middle) and right side(right side) as showing on the diagram 3. all of the slots their are insertable with a jack like the one on the diagram 1. if your jack are ordinary and not like the diagram 1 then you should have to buy a adaptor to be able to insert it in the audio interface of your computer. one thing, be sure that youve already installed the audio driver camed with your motherboard to be able to have a sound wither you use a headphones or speakers. if you have a question just tell me. hope that helps you sir!

    You can see a printer button in your tool bar (i.e. below your address bar) click on that and a print dialog box opens.. in that click on print, You will get a print of this page fully.

Speakers : With that system, the drivers for the audio should already be installed for you. Just plug them into the right spot on the back and turn them on! :)

DVD's : Windows media player, as long as it is kept up to date, is more than sufficient for playing most of your DVD titles.

Word Processor : If it came with Microsoft Office (as I'm not sure if it does) then yes. If not, you can simply go to www.openoffice.org and download a really nice office quite that is both free and comparable to Microsoft Office. (Microsoft Word is the word processor for Microsoft Office)

Printing Emails and Such : Window Windows Mail, you can simply click the file menu and select the print option. The newer setup is really easy to use, and figuring out how to print just what you want is rather easy. This works for most applications. Also, many applications have a small icon or button that looks like a printer. Click these to print as well. :)

I hope this helps you out bud! I'm also glad to see that your not letting your memory problems keep you from newer technology. :)

Word processors such as Microsoft word do not come packaged with the computer but that basically depends on what you purchased so you have to find out.
Click start then programs If you see Microsoft Office then Microsoft Word and click on it. Try to use it if it works then you have a word processor.
As for the speakers have you already plugged it in your computer?
To play DVD's as long as you have a DVD ROm (Which comes standard nowadays) You can play DVD's and do not have to subscribe.
To print and email you must of course have a printer. But if the printer is setup you will see a printer icon on your email just click on that and it will print.

Blood pressure at 70 years old female 140/67?


Pretty good . The one to really watch is the second one which shows the pressure when the heart is in between contractions. if it gets close to 90 or above that is no good.. Your bp meds generally work on the high end but not the low end.

2005 lincoln aviator on fifth battery in nine years. Why?


Motorcraft Batteries?

In my Lincoln L/S, the first one lasted 3 1/2 years & was done under warranty

Second one lasted 5 years

Now that one failed two weeks ago at 20 months

In my case the battery is in the trunk & you can't find a battery with
a vent for that car & ford batteries are on odd size, just for their
design or group size,go figure

The Motorcraft Max is free for 3 years & pro rated for 100 months,
so not a bad deal.

IF you have a big enough battery tray & a basic looking battery,
try the NAPA Legend Batt 8465 750 CCA 65 BCI (group size)

They are from East Penn MFG in Penn & plants in other states & their own brand is DEKA in the private parts stores

What I like is that there are no caps on top & no leaking, just like
the old AC Delco I used for 40 years & got 7 to 9 years out of them

I have had a Napa in my 30 year old blazer for two year so far

The question,well I think it is part battery & part the load the electronics puts on the batteries

When I open the trunk & have only the trunk light on & with a
new or old battery, I only get 12.3 volts

I get the same thing on my scan tool data when I turn off the car
& then put the key on,yet all data is good KOEO or Engine Running.

Archos 70 won't turn on


I have the 8gig Archos 70, the whole thing froze as described in other posts. The solution is not for the feint of heart though. Mine would do absolutely nothing. So what the heck, I opened it up (nothing to lose at this point). Messed about a bit. Read that when it "Bricks" like this there is nothing that can be done. If it is Bricked, something locks it in the memory and function. As long as the battery is connected, it will remain that way no matter what.

Solution. Cut the black power wire from the battery (there are three long wires red white and black), leave for 20 minute, and solder the wire back together and heat shrink the joint. Reassemble, plug in power cord and it should reboot...

My archos is about 3-4 years old, and is mounted to the wall in my kitchen for use as an internet radio
