If you are trying to shut the computer off, it is really quite simple. You must let the computer software shut the system down. Pressing buttons to shut your system off is only used as a last resort.
With your mouse, go to the "Start" button (Windows XP) or the round Windows icon (vista) in the lower left hand corner of your computer screen. Also, Windows will help you make the right selection. If you move the mouse pointer over objects on the bottom task bar, and just hold it there, a little explaination of its function will often appear. OK, lets move on.

If you have a round Windows icon in the corner, select it by left clicking with your mouse. In the far right corner of the window that just appeared, there is a right facing arrow. Click on it, and the last item in the list is shut down. Click on that with your mouse, and your computer will shut down.

If you have a "Start" button, select it by left clicking with your mouse and select "Shut Down" in the lower right hand corner of the window that just opened up. A new window will open in the center of your screen. Select "Shut Down" with the pull down arrow in the center of the window, and select OK. Your computer will now shut down.

Another way to do this for either type of system is to close all windows and then hold down the "Alt" key and press the F4 button (often referred to as Alt+F4). This will bring up a dialog box similar to the "Start" button solution, and allow you to make a selection and shut down your computer.
Good luck!

You have to click the Start button and choose "Shut Down " and click the mouse on that. If that does not work, try pressing Ctrl + Alt+ delete simultaneously. What they call the task manager will come up. choose Shut down and click on it. It should shut down

Generator wouldn't start acting like dead battery but then tried puller and it is frozen.. it started and hour earlier


How old is your generator? A few years ago I had a similar issue and when I tried getting it repaired I was told that it was too old and that it would be better to buy a new one. Mine was about 15 years old and so that is understandable. Also, you might want to check the warranty to see if it is covered and can get replaced. http://www.wadesalesandservice.com/power-generation

Does this motherboard have integrated video? Or do I need to buy graphics card?


Well if your computer is new generation computer than it has integrated video and you don't need to buy graphics card to view normal display.Now a Days all the new motherboard has integrated 128mb to 256mb graphic chipset in build , but if you want to play high resolution games and graphic works .


And if your computer belongs to old age,say 8-10 years old than you need to put a PCI VGA card to get normal display.

All the best.

Facebook says my email / password combination is incorrect


HI,

Once you click on Forgot Password you will not get your old pass back.You will only get another new pass generated by the facebook support.

So you will have to use that new generated pass.After you login with that new generated pass you can then change your pass back to the old one by going into the settings or profile option.

How do a veiw my library on my mp3


Plug your mp3 into the computer using your usb cable. Open windows explorer and click on drive "E". it might be different on different computers but a little playig around should find it. Then by trolling through it you should find all the files available on your mp3. Your problem was created by removing it from the computer without using the safety hardware removal. I still have not found a simple method to rectify this problem.

New computer, old speakers


Very easy just plug the jack at the back of the computer. In the sound card it is color coded. So plug it in the green one.
