I found this fix for my problem. It was disabled in the registry. I had tried all the normal fixes updating drivers repairing XP even installing net meeting as the Microsoft fix listed and none worked until I found this post. Hats off to this person that found the registry entry. Just passing good information on I can't take the credit for this fix. Hope this helps someone else. Be careful in the registry if you don't know what your doing.

Having problems with DirectX?
No options to enable DirectDraw within DxDiag?
Installed all the latest drivers?
Still not working?
This worked for me ...

The problem 'may' be due to DirectDraw acceleration being disabled. In
my case this probably occured when a remote desktop package was
installed.

To check if it has been disabled, look in the registry for ...
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\GraphicsDrivers\DCI
Timeout=0

If it is, try setting Timeout to 7 and then switch graphics modes (or
reboot).
This will enable DirectDraw acceleration.

(Only edit the registry if you know what you are doing)

If you use Windows 2000 or XP

  • Rightclick the Windows desktop and choose Properties from the popup menu
  • Click the Settings tab and then click Advanced
  • In the next dialog box, click the Troubleshoot tab
  • Under Hardware acceleration, move the slider one notch to the left.
  • Click OK as many times as needed to return to the Desktop.

If you use Windows Vista
  • Rightclick the Windows desktop and choose Personalize.
  • Click "Display Settings".
  • In the Display Settings dialog box, click "Advanced Settings..."
  • On the resulting dialog box, click the "Troubleshoot" tab.
  • Click "Change Settings"
  • You'll probably see a User Account Control message box asking for permission to continue. Click "Continue"
  • On the resulting Display Adapter Troubleshooter dialog box, move the slider one notch to the left.
  • Click OK as many times as needed/close any windows that opened along the way, and return to the Windows desktop.

After changing acceleration, re-test After setting the acceleration back, repeat whatever whatever caused the problem in the first place to see if it's now fixed.

You can either reduce the acceleration a notch at a time until the problem goes away, or move it all the way to the left, test, then if that cures it, try moving it to the right again until the problem recurs, then back off one notch.

If changing the video hardware acceleration solves the problem, it's a signal that your computer's video driver isn't quite perfect. Check with the manufacturer (of the video system or the computer) to see if updated drivers are available. Even if your PC is brand-new, it's probably been several weeks or months since it was built and video drivers change almost daily.

Does a samsung stratospher need a sims card to ativate?


It depends on the carrier. After checking the specs though the phone comes back as a 4G LTE device so you will need a SIM card for ATT, Sprint, and Verizon. If you are on something like Straight Talk or MetroPCS, then they do not use SIMs

Screeen is upside down


If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

I hope this helps.

HOW TO ENABLE BLUETOOTH IN THIS NOTEPAD ?


The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.

2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.

3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.

I hope you may find it very helpful.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
