From your description of the issue I'm inclined to say that there is a problem with the monitor. If possible, try the monitor on another system, see if the problem follows the monitor

When I unistalled internet explorer 8 by accident but how do i reinstall internet explorer ?


Oops! Well, it may not be such a bad problem. This is what Microsoft has to say about it:
Reinstall Internet Explorer in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 Because Internet Explorer is now a Windows feature in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8, you can't uninstall it. However, you can turn it off. To do this, follow the steps in the "Turn off Internet Explorer" section in Install or uninstall Internet Explorer (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/internet-explorer/install-ie) .

After you turn off Internet Explorer and then restart your computer, Internet Explorer will be removed from your computer.

You can also turn the Internet Explorer Windows feature back on to reinstall it on your computer.

When i play my game i cant see the whole screen how do i fix it?


If you are playing pogo games ?

Pogo.com is an online gaming website where you can play well-known games such as Monopoly, Battleship and Scrabble -- along with scores of other board, word, puzzle and arcade games -- in a Web browser window. The games on Pogo are programmed using Adobe Flash, and are viewed in a small box inside the browser. If your computer has a large display, you may find the games difficult to see because of the of the game box. Although you cannot independently adjust the of the Pogo game box, there are several tricks that you can use to make games appear larger on your screen. Magnify the browser window. In Internet Explorer 9, click the gear-shaped button in the upper-right corner of the screen, and click "Zoom" and "Zoom In." Browse in full screen mode. In Internet Explorer 9, press the "F11" key to enter this mode, and press "F11" again to leave it. Lower the screen resolution. In Windows 7, minimize the browser, right-click the desktop and select "Screen Resolution." Click the drop-down menu next to "Resolution," and select a lower resolution than the one currently displayed. Because a lower resolution uses less pixels to display the information on the screen, this has the effect of making the Pogo game box larger. Remember to change the resolution back when you are done playing. Disable the address and status bars in Internet Explorer 9 if a portion of the game window is cut off. Click the gear-shaped button, and then click "Internet Options." Click the "Security" tab, then click the "Custom Level" button. Click the "Enable" radio button next to "Allow websites to open windows without address or status bars," then click "OK" twice. Close and re-open your Pogo game window. Press the "F4" key. Some Pogo games enter full-screen mode when this key is pressed, but many do not. Hope this helps.

Dell desktop monitor screen flickers.


The monitor is about to go bad. Replace it. Borrow a monitor from a family member, neighbor or friend just to see if the flickering stops. If it does stop your monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor flickers, you will need to replace your Video Card in the computer.

How do i enable cookies on my computer? and i have java instaled but some games and videos wont play on the computer?


I assume you want to enable Cookies in Internet Explorer (Different for Firefox, googlechrome, etc..).
Open the Internet Explorer, click "Tools", then "Internet Options" and on the Internet Options dialog box, click "Privacy" tab and then click "Advanced" (circled):
221b7a1.jpg


Now in the Advanced box, select the "Overwrite automatic cookie handling"
a5b600b.jpg

Again, select "Always allow session cookies" [note: by default, both the options should be set as "Accept"]
13d066c.jpg

And then "Ok"
Again "Ok". 2ad5978.jpg

Now your internet explorer's cookies has been enabled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I'm using Windows XP Professional. My computer


Quick fix: Do a system restore to yesterday or whenever they last good restore date is.
We could mess around with the settings for quite a while, but I'm not really sure what has happened. Unless you clicked in the lower right hand corner of your web browser (which I assume to be Internet Explorer) and reduced the size to something waaaaay less than 100%.

I have Dell GX-270's and when someone tries to play pinball sometimes it freezes and the video will not return to normal. Is there a fix for this?


How much Memory do you have installed? Got My Computer, right click Properties, and it will show the memory on the bottom right corner below your name. Verify the memory needed for the games in System Requirements on the game sites. Install more memory (get memory cheapest on Ebay) if needed. Last, download and install Mozilla Firefox 3.5 internet browser. It is faster than Internet Explorer. Use it to run your games.

  2. Click the Privacy tab, and then click Advanced.
  3. Click Override automatic cookie handling, and then specify how you want Internet Explorer to handle cookies from first-party Web sites and third-party Web sites (a Web site other than the one you are currently viewing).

    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to never allow cookies to be saved on your computer, click Block.
    • To specify that you want Internet Explorer to ask whether or not you want to allow a cookie to be saved on your computer, click Prompt.
