Did you try the mode reset switch on the monitor after going back to 800x600? also try 640x480/16 colors since that is one of the default modes for all vga monitors.

    also try it on another computer if you can.
    if it's one of the monitors with pushbutton mode/brightness/contrast/etc... controls (most monitors are these days), the mode switching processor can get "confused". see if you can bring up the monitor's internal menu, and select "factory defaults" or "mode reset" or something similar.

Unable to read external HDD after plugging it to a Mac (previously it is readable via a Windows PC)

Chances are it was formatted as NTFS format by the PC which is not MAC compatible. You will need to reformat the drive in HFS format if you want it to work as a MAC disk only or in FAT32 format if you want to read it in PC and MAC machines.

How do I reset the distance to empty

The DTE is automatic and is the result of your previous miles per gallon multiplied by the gallons of gas registered in your tank.

Unlike the Trip miles, this DTE number can not be reset. It will vary by the fuel mileage per gallon recorded at each startup. That is why if you filled the tank and showed 400DTE you may have had 20 Gallons multiplied by 20 MPG. But if your new average is 16 MPG then it would show 320 DTE.

I cant overclock my system but i go to bios now whati had to do

The BIOS. Overclocking is best done in the computer's BIOS (Basic Input/Output System or Binary Integrated Operating System). There are also some motherboards that let you do a basic increase in power by setting a jumper, but this is dangerous and you have no real stability control.

There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST

(Power On Self Test - when it shows the RAM size, processor speed, etc.).

Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier (also referred to as CPU Clock Ratio).

Clearing your CMOS. Sometimes, an overclock can become unstable. If this happens, or your computer will not boot, you will need to reset the BIOS back to default and start over again.

This is done by clearing the CMOS (a small piece of memory on the motherboard which stores your BIOS configuration, and is powered by a small battery). Some newer motherboards will bypass user settings in the CMOS if the computer fails POST (often caused by a faulty overclock). However, most motherboards require a manual clear.

This can be done in two ways, depending on your motherboard. The first way is by changing the position of the clear CMOS jumper on your motherboard, waiting a few minutes, then repositioning the jumper to its original place.

The CMOS Jumper

The second way, if your motherboard doesn't have this jumper, consists of unplugging your computer, removing the little CMOS battery, then pressing the power button (your capacitors will discharge), and waiting a couple of minutes.

Then you have to refit the battery and plug in your computer. Once your CMOS is cleared, all BIOS settings are reset back to default and you'll have to start the overclocking process all over again. Just so you know, this step is only necessary if your overclock becomes unstable.

Locked or Unlocked. The first thing to know when you start the process of overclocking, is whether your processor is multiplier locked or unlocked.

To check whether your CPU is locked, lower your multiplier via the BIOS one step, for example from 11 to 10.5. Save and exit your BIOS and your computer will restart.

If your computer posts again and shows the new CPU speed, it means your CPU is unlocked. However, if your computer failed to post (screen remains black) or no CPU speed change is present, this means your multiplier is locked

Multiplier Unlocked Processors. Usually, your max overclock is limited by your memory, or RAM. A good starting place is to find the top memory bus speed in which your memory can handle while keeping it in sync with the FSB. To check this, lower your CPU multiplier some steps (from 11 to 9, for example) and increase your FSB a few notches (e.g.: 200 MHz to 205 MHz).

After this, save and exit your BIOS. There are a few ways to test for stability.

If you make it into Windows, that is a good start. You can try running a few CPU / RAM intensive programs to stress these components. Some good examples are SiSoft Sandra, Prime95, Orthos, 3DMark 2006 and Folding@Home.

You may also choose to run a program outside of Windows, such as Memtest. Load a copy of Memtest onto a bootable floppy, then insert the disk after you have exited the BIOS.

Continue to increase your FSB until Memtest starts reporting errors. When this happens, you can try to increase the voltage supplied to your memory.

Do note that increasing voltages may shorten the life span of your memory. Also, another option is to loosen the timings on the memory (more on this a bit later). The previous FSB setting before the error will be your max FSB. Your max FSB will fully depend on what memory you have installed. Quality, name-brand memory will work best for overclocking.

Now that you know your max FSB, you'll figure out your max multiplier. Keeping your FSB @ stock, you raise your multiplier one step at a time. Each time you restart, check for system stability. As mentioned above, one good way to do this is by running Prime95.

If it doesn't post (reread the section about clearing the CMOS), or Prime 95 fails, you can try to raise the core voltage a bit. Increasing it may or may not increase stability. On the other hand, the temperature will also be increased. If you are going to increase the core voltage, you should keep an eye on temperatures, at least for a few minutes.

Also note that increasing voltages may shorten the life span of your CPU, not to mention void your warranty. When your computer is no longer stable at a given multiplier setting, lower your multiplier one step and take that as your max multiplier.

Now that you have your max FSB speed and your max multiplier, you can play around and determine the best settings for your system. Do note that having a higher FSB overclock as opposed to a higher multiplier will have a greater impact on overall system performance.

hope this helps

When i turned my pc i don't go nowhere i got a message saying; "unable to read file C:\windows\system32\config\software . Please if anybody help me i really will appreciate

Hi, it sounds to me like your computer has got a virus, what you need to do now is get hold of a windows cd and re-install windows the virus has corrupted some of the data stored on your hard drive so if you get hold of an original windows cd or if you have one yourself that came with the computer then all you need to do is switch it on and put the cd in the drive then it will ask you to boot from cd select yes then let it load it will then ask you if you want to repair the previous installation of windows, again select yes.

this will then repair the damage done and it will then solve your problem and it will get your computer back up and running, when it is back on you need to scan for viruses and then this should then solve your problem.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

a good virus scan is called spybot search and destroy if you google this spybot search and destroy you will find the site that lets you download this software its free and one of the best virus detection software out their.

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

This makes no sense.

If you updated Publisher, it should read files created with the "current" version of Publisher *AND* it should read files created with the "previous" version of Publisher.

I would like to know how to work out currency conversion formula on a normal calculator please

rind the exchange rate, perhaps at a site such as:
so, for example, 1 euro is apparently worth 1.4765 US$ at the moment.
if you have 13.82 US$ divide by 1.4765 to get 9.36 euro.
if you had 32.00 euro then multiply by 1.4765 to come up with 47.25 US$

Automatically adjust window size

You can get at least part way there as follows:
Go to Start>Control Panel>Classic menu>Choose Folder Options >General Tab, choose Use windows classic folders & Open each folder in its own window. Choose apply, Go to View tab and choose behavior desired for windows. Apply. Restart.
Beyond this, you could set a hotkey to minimize open windows, but you may have to get a third party program if you want automatic resizing.
See, for example, here and here

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Defective sony/intel cpu?

Sony tech support, refused 2 show me how 2 reset the multiplier.apparently their firmware has a multiplier of 6x locked in.nowhere in the bios/cmos can it be says its suppose to be a 9x multiplier 2 achieve the 1500mhz.why would sony throttle down a 1.5ghz rig to 997mhz?they cpu must be defective & to stop it from blowing up on people they set the multiplier @ 6x.ok fine but don’t advertise it as a 1500mhz rig & make consumers think that’s the speed they’ll b many other u.s.citizens r unaware that they’ve been swindled/cheated/misled?what about a recall? What about some legal action against them?i’ve spent hours & hours e-mailing them & making phonecalls & they’re intent on acting as if they’ve done nothing wrong.
