Sorry if this is obtuse but have you tried a system restore?

go to help and support and find "undo changes to my computer using system restore"

pick a date prior to the problem and voila all should be well

Vista desktop in't covering the screen


This typically means that you have your resolution set to a size that is not optimal for the monitor you are using. For example, if you have a modern 24-inch monitor that can display 1920 x 1080 resolution and you have Vista set to use only 1024 x 768 resolution, it will use only part of the screen rather than all of it. The way to resolve this is to go into the Display control panel applet and set the appropriate resolution.

I have windows 7 and do not care for the way it looks. \r\nMy old xp would let me change all the white to a custom color. W7 will not let everything change. I am visually in paired and see things brighter...


Ok - this can be done - step by step...
1. Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance
2. At bottom of that screen: Advanced Appearance Settings.
3. Top selection drop down - find Application Background.
4. Change that to a more agreeable color.
5. Save changes.
6. Enjoy a PC that you can look out without being blinded by the bright whites.
Cheers.
PS - Tested on my Windows 7 Home Premium.

Unable to login to laptop due to forgotten login password


First thing you can try is:

1: When booting up the laptop Press F8 until you see a screen show that has an option to boot in "Safe Mode"
2: Once it has finished booting up you can Select Administrator and hopefully there is no password set.
3: If there is no password set then login as Administrator and goto "Control Panel", Select User Accounts and change your daughter's password to something she wont forget ;p

if that fails then you can try this

Hope this helped.

Dvd driver disappeared from vista premium home


You will need to modify the registry on the system make sure that you have a system backup first.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11­CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


If you venture to the registry key above by doing the following steps:
  1. Click on the start menu.
  2. If this is a Vista machine in the search box type in “regedit” without the quotation marks.
  3. Maximize the HKLM and then go ahead and browse until you reach the key listed above.
  4. In the right panel you’ll see something along the lines of “UpperFilter” and “LowerFilter” you want to click on each “filter” key and hit delete. Click yes when it asks to confirm if you wish to delete the key.
  5. Restart Windows.
  6. Let me know if this works.

My new hp w2207h monitor, pop up keep telling me to install driver. when i install driver a error message comes up.what should i do.


Go to - CONTROL PANEL - DEVICE MANAGER then find monitors in the list,right click the desired device, then PROPERTIES this will tell you if the device is working properly. then click update drivers. If this fails check your screen resolution settings. The safest thing is to set it to default.Sometimes the graphics card isnt big enough for the monitor so try tweaking visual settings like shadows and fonts. Things like message box outlines and shadows can be turned off too speed the image up.If your using vista your probably using the default theme AERO/GLASS. Change it to a normal theme of your choice but dont use GLASS. this uses quite alot of graphics power.

I have a new Acer Aspire 5315. It runs Vista Home Premium. I've increased the ram to 2gig. However, I can't get it to run Vista Aero... any ideas?


It maybe to do with your settings of your graphics card, or whether you have got enough video memory. Also try and go to control panel, performance and enable it! , Read this : http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/966/vista_enable_or_disable_aero_glass_transparency_effect
