Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Everytime I am typing a letter, whether it be by email or on a forum, the screen disappears and so does the letter. It seems like it might have to do with the cursor for some reason. Sometimes it just moves to another place in the letter. The problem is getting worse and I've had this computer for only two years. It's a Sony Vaio and it's loaded but I'm about to throw it into the fireplace! (its' a laptop)

Hi,
What kind of mouse are you using with your laptop? Are you using the built-in one or an external? If using an external is it possibly one with "red light" underneath instead of a ball? If so make sure that you are using it on a MATT surface. Even a slightly glossy surface has a tendency to make the cursor jump all over the place.
Also possibly your palms might be touching the internal mouse if it has a touch-pad (I'm assuming it does). You may want to disable that pad if so.
Let me know if any of this makes sense? :)
Thanks,
Kaj

First, make sure that your screen is clean and clear of smudges/fingerprints, etc. Then try again. If still no go; possible static damage to capacitive overlay(time for phone repairman).

Everytime I try to print this e-mail attachment my printer reads paper mismatch


I assume you are using some other application other than the email application itself to attempt to
print.

Your printer is complaining about a wrong paper size. For example your application may by default have
'A4' selected while your printer is loaded with 'Letter'.

Go into the configuration of your application and change the paper size being used to match that which
is in the printer paper tray. Your problem should disappear at that point.

I WANT TO HIDE TEXT UNDER A HEADING WHICH SHOWS WHEN CURSOR HOVERS OVER HEADING,THANK YOU.


One way to do it is to type a series of letters (they don't have to make any sense at all.

Next, highlight the entire series of letters, right click and choose hyperlink. In the box that comes up, type the text you want displayed on the mouse-over and hot OK.

Next, highlight the entire string of text again and change the color of the font to white. The entire string ox characters will disappear, yet everytime you mouse-over, the text you want displayed will be seen in a small popup box.

You may have a dead pixel on the screen. Sometimes dead pixels will seem to disappear when the screen turns a different color. The only way that I know how to fix it is to get repairs.

A follow-up on my Dell vertical lines issues


I understand that it seems odd that sometimes they disappear.
I have a vertical line on one of my laptops right now that it takes about 3 seconds before it appears on the screen but once it's there. It's there.

I think it has to "warm up" before it comes back.
I used to do Technical support for a company that produced computers with 5inch wide screens, and everytime something with a line was mentioned, "Fix display cable" was the reason.
Because everytime you pushed the screen up to see the keyboard the line disappeared (because the display cable moved) But I digress.
All I'm certain of is that if you change the display cable this will be fixed.

Letter writting problems


Do you use a laptop or some sort of keyboard with a mouse pad? My son used to have that problem when he would type as his thumb would accidentally hit the mouse pad and move the cursor. We solved it in a very low tech way by taping a notecard over the mouse pad when he was using the computer. Depending on the manufacurer, there are ways to turn off the mouse pad while continuing to use a mouse.
