Distorted characters in text mode

First, the card was too hot. I have removed the cooling and have replaced the white pasta with silver pasta. Then the temp was much better. Now the last days I get at boot and in DOS-mode (start with DOS-diskette)the character ")" regular divided over the screen in rows and columns. When typing the characters of my keyboard, I see a wrong character at each postion where a ) is. What is wrong with this card. Is this a bios of the card problem. I have tried to find articles about how a video card works (functions), but nothing found.

How do I use alphabet keys on remote

Generally, entering text is carried out the same way as with most cell phones.
  • 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: Enter a character to the position pointed by the cursor.
    • First press: enter the first character from a set of characters related to this button. Each subsequent press: you may change the entered character to the next one from this set.
    • 0: enter the space.
    • 1: enter a special character (punctuation marks, etc).
      • Up, Down, Left, Right after pressing 1 (special character entering mode): select the required character.
  • ENTER: confirm selection; finish text entering.
  • SUBTITLE: enter the period (for numeric mode); functions like button 1 (character mode).
  • CLEAR (<-): delete a character to the left of cursor.
  • SELECT (cap'num): switch input mode:
    • abc: character mode, small latin letters.
    • ABC: character mode, capital latin letters.
    • 123: numeric mode, digits.
  • RETURN: cancel the text changes and finish text entering.
  • Left/Right: move the cursor one character left/right.
  • Up/Down: move the cursor to the start/end of a text line.
    • If the cursor is already in start/end position: select another user interface element which is under/over the current text entry area (only for dialogs with several elements of user interface; text changes are confirmed automatically).
  • POP UP MENU: show context menu with a list of available commands. They allow you to cut, copy and paste text using the clipboard, much like it is done on a PC.

Need recipe to make pasta

Tips for Optimum Pasta
The dough should be evenly kneaded, and slightly moist to form a soft malleable dough. The dough should have the consistency which is not too dry or too moist.

The dough is too dry if it has a powdery, grainy consistency and breaks into small chunks. Add more liquid (water or vegetable juice) by the teaspoon until it has formed a smooth, malleable dough that is not sticking to the sides or the kneading spiral.

The dough is too moist if large lumps of dough remain stuck to the kneading spiral. Add flour by the teaspoon until it has formed a smooth, malleable dough that does not stick to the sides or the kneading spiral.

If you add a little bit of olive oil to the pasta dough, it will slide better through the outlet openings of the pasta attachments.

For the pasta dough, you can use both normal household flour as well as wholegrain flour, gluten free flour, or flour made from durum wheat semolina. Different types of flours will require a different amount of liquids. Reserve some liquid and add it slowly for best results. Document your process so you can repeat it in the future.

Vegetable juices made, for example, from spinach, carrots or tomatoes are ideal for adding color and nutrients to your pasta.

Sprinkle flour on your pasta directly as it emerges from the outlet opening and place it down separated on a smooth floured surface to dry. This will prevent the pasta from sticking together.

Cooking time for fresh pasta is much shorter than for dried pasta from the supermarket; 2-4 minutes is usually sufficient. Thinner pastas, however, may require an even shorter cooking time. We recommend you check the pasta at regular intervals until the pasta is "al dente".

Fresh pasta can be kept for 1-2 days in the fridge and frozen in the freezer for as long as 6 months. To stop the pasta from sticking, you should lay the pasta out to dry for 1-2 hours before you store it in the fridge or freeze it.

Ronco pasta maker stops on the mix mode

Your motor most likely has a short which is making it go to a sort of pause. The machine motor (the whole machine part not the insides) can easily be replaced on eBay or I just bought a new motor at Goodwill for $6.99.

I have a nvidia geforce 9600 which shows color distor5tion, white square dots , false color and 1's and 0's .the problem started when i did a low level formatting of the hard drive. please suggest solution...

I would uninstall all nvidia drivers using add/remove programs, restart the machine and let windows use default drivers until you download the latest drivers from the nvidia website. while using default drivers, the card will be in standard VGA mode, if there are no distortions, you know the card is ok. If you still get distortion with default drivers then your card is probably shot.
Good luck.

I to want replace a regular duplex outlet with a TM818-WCC6 and want just the outlet switched. How do I wire it?

The Pass and Seymour plug-switch combo has 3 screws
There is a dark screw on one side .... the black Hot wire from breaker box connects here

There are silver and brass colored screws on other side of device

The white Neutral from breaker box connects to silver screw connects here >>> this will give power to your receptacle
The black wire going to Load (light, fan, motor that you want switch to control) connects to brass colored screw ... the switch controls power to Load

How to test for black Hot
Remove devices and separate wires
Turn on power
Test each wire to bare copper wire
Tester lights up on black Hot wire
How to test for white Neutral
Test black Hot to each white wire
Tester lights up on Neutral

Distorted display


You could isolate the problem if it is a monitor / video card problem by removing the cable (VGA/DVI) and see if the self test feature will have a distorted display

If Yes - Monitor Problem
If No - Video Card Problem or Software problem

If no, try to go to safe mode by tapping "F8" once you turn the computer on.
1. Select Safe mode (Check for video distortion)
2. Select Enable VGA Mode (Check for video distortion)

If one of the 2 is distorted the video card has a problem

If one of them doesn't show any distorted video it means its a driver/software problem.

Hope this helps.

Problem of diacritic characters in Pagemaker

You can't reliably open/paste text from Microsoft applications into PageMaker. I know exactly what is happening, I see it a bit, and the only solution is to replace those characters.
Are you aware of the ASCII Character Code table set - Firstly, are you on Mac or PC, this bit's for PC users. There is a huge array of 'hidden' characters on any typing application that will be produced from Windows using the ASCII Character table by holding down the Alt key and at the same time typing a number on the keypad; such as Alt+156 will give you the pounds character (£). You should be able to open a "Charset" file from C:Programs\Adobe\Pagemaker\Extras folder which will be the table of ASCII characters you can use. NOTE:: by default PM6.5 install the folder will be in C:\PM65\Extras.
Failing this, you will have to look up (or create, as I did) a character font list like Dingbats or Symbols or Wingdings to find the character you need.
Yes, you will have to manually fix any shortfalls in the text appearing on the page.
TIP:: When you have the MS Word document, save the file as TEXT ONLY and then from PageMaker "place" the text onto the page, it'll ask you to "Remove returns at ... end of every line" do NOT check this, no to remove returns = this method will give you the most accurate text imports, and none of the annoying MS Word type styles imported.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

Distorted images

sounds more like a problem with the drivers and/or the settings for resolution or refresh rate, have you tried to boot into safe mode and uninstall the drivers ? Also when you do this you may want to use a regisrty cleaner to remove all traces to the drivers in your registry as some driver do not remove all trace from the registry upon uninstallation.
