Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Corrupted Desktop? Hi Steve, Thanks for your last reply. I tried what you suggested and no luck. I have an ASUS notebook computer running Windows XP Pro. This vertical blue band appears to overlay the desktop on the left side of the screen. I have tried all manner of possiblities that I am aware of thru the Control Panel settings and have had no success. When I try to go into the Device Manager I get a message: "MMC will not run with a version of Internet Explorer earlier than 5.5". I have uninstalled Internet Explorer with a view to running Mozilla Firefox instead. Perhaps I need to reinstall windows on my C drive? Regards, Michael

No, this is a hardware setting. When you checked your display monitor for manual settings did you see any? There would be display width, height, pincushion, trapezoid, etc. Which monitor do you have? Also you can still have Internet Explorer installed with any other browser as your default. When you go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Windows Features select Internet Explorer to reinstall that. Firefox does not support ActiveX scripting which is necessary to run many Microsoft diagnostic programs so never completely uninstall IE. You may also just download IE7 which is a tabbed browser like FireFox. Choosing FireFox allows better security but that is only because it does not use ActiveX.

Resently installed windows 7 on my asus c90s, my webcam doesny work! there is a message,'' sorry, you dont have any video capturing hardware.'' pls help!


I'm sorry to said that Asus C90S does not supports windows 7. You can see by yourself at this link. That's the reason for not working your camera. I suggest you either stay at Windows XP or try to use the Windows XP drivers with win7, but I can't be sure if it will work.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "flags".

Unable to load desktop ASUS 1005HA XP SP3


Hi

It seems you are stuck in a windows loading loop

Please do the following

1) Go into safe mode (swith the pc on and keep pressing F8 repeatedly until you have a menu presented to you, from the menu choose safe mode)

2) Once loaded click on Start>Programs>Accessories> System Tools> System restore

And restore your computer back to a point before the update was done



if it still loops when using safe mode through the method shown above then unfortunaltey you will have to reformat the PC

Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

Installed world of warcraft now when i logg onto computer desktop is black. could it be low memory it will not load up desktop after windows logg in screen


If the Desktop is black and the taskbar is not visible then windows explorer has got corrupted.
In this case, open the Task Manager by pressing the ctrl+shift+Esc keys together and click on the "Applications" tab.
Next, click on the "New Task" button and type "Explorer.exe" and click OK.
This will bring the Desktop and the Taskbar back.

Driver Problem


Hi,

There might be 3 reasons :-

1. Download not completed due to slow speed. It would create an icon the desktop. But, when you install, it would show 'Installation Failed".

2. You haven't uninstalled all the realtek files that might have in your notebook/Desktop from the last installation.

3. Corrupted file. Try to again download realtek from sites like :-
