Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook

1 Answer

Window disappears then minimized


When I minimize, there is no visible tab for restore. The software is still running, i.e. I can open task manager and it is there running.

This is in XP Pro on a Toshiba Satellite U200. The product listing below does not include the U200 so I just selected first listing.

Thank you in advance.

Press the Esc key. If that doesn't do it, try the Space bar, or Enter key. Last but not least, the Tab key MIGHT do the job.

Dell inspiron right hand margin cut off


It is more likely that the window got moved to a point where the x, restore, and minimize buttons don't show than it is that a portion of the whole desktop is cut off. Right-click on the icon that represents this window in the task bar, and click maximize. If that's not an option, choose move, and then use the down and or left arrow keys to reposition the window where you can see the minimize, restore, and x buttons, and then hit enter on the keyboard.

Solve black screen after windows bootup


After logging on there is no desktop, task bar, system tray or side bar. Instead you are left with a totally black screen and a single My Computer Explorer window. Even this window might be minimized making it hard to see.
1. Restart the Computer and login with the login and password that you use.

2. If the black screen appears and there is no icon visible on screen, Press the “ALT + CTRL + DEL” keys on the keyboard together.

3. A windows will appear with option to launch Task Manager, Simply Launch Task Manager.

4. On Task Manager, go to Application Tab and Click on New Task

5. Now type "explorer.exe" in the task window and click run.

Hai..


if you really are asking for the parts of MS word 2003,i bet this should help and really there are more than 4 parts

1. The Title bar gives the name of the document and the program being used

2. On the right side of the Title bar are three buttons.
a. The Minimize button makes the window disappear from the screen without closing
the program. You can bring the window back by clicking on its button on the Task
bar at the bottom of the screen.
b. The Reduce/Maximize button makes the window smaller or takes it back to full size.
c. The Close button closes the document or program.

3. The Menu bar offers dropdown menus for things you do in Microsoft Word.

4. The Toolbars display icons that perform specific tasks when clicked. Often the toolbar icon performs the task without offering any options.

5. The Rulers display the tabs, indents, margins and give the user a visual guide for alignment.
a. Tabs are set on the ruler by clicking the spot on the ruler where you want to the tab to
start. Different Tab settings can be used to align text, decimals and indents.
b. Indents and margins can be set with the handles.

6. The Document display window is where the current document is visible.

7. The Scroll bars allow the user to move up and down the document in the window.

8. The Status bar shows the location of the cursor, number of pages and includes advanced toolbar options.

9. The Task bar displays buttons for Open programs or documents.

Loaded DVO on Vista and it will not open to screen


What do I do if Cook'n won't open or it has disapeared?

  1. First you should check to see if Cook'n is being minimized to the bottom of your screen. If it is simply right click on it and choose "Maximize" or "Restore"
  2. If it is not in the tool bar at the bottom of your screen then we need to go into the "Task Manager"
  3. To get into the "Task Manager" hold Alt+Ctrl+Delete all at the same time (if you have vista you will have to then select task manager)
  4. Look under the "Applications" tab and see if you can see Cook'n running. If it is running right click on it and choose either "Maximize", "Restore", or "Bring to front"
  5. If Cook'n Opens then you can close out of the "Task Manger" and close out of Cook'n
  6. Then Right click on the icon of Cook'n (strawberry) and choose properties. Then 2/3 the way down it will say run "normal window" you should change that to "run maximized" then click OK
  7. You can then try to open Cook'n Again and it should open just fine. If you continue to have problems please email support@dvo.com

How do I exit windows media player?


Right-click on an empty space on the task-bar (where all windows minimize) and select Task Manager.

In the Task Manager go to the Processes tab. Find "wmplayer.exe", single-click on it to select it and then press the End Process button.

Like this:

Note: If you cannot find "wmplayer.exe" then it is already closed.

I have a Dell Latitude C610, some programs run dead slow!


Wow! 24 hours to run a virus check -- that's a long time. Let's see if we can find out what is causing your laptop to run so slow.

I understand you've doubled the ram ... It is now at least 2gb?

Please look at the following at the event viewer logs to see if anything looks out of the ordinary. (Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Event Viewer ... look at the Application and System Log in particular).

Is there any process in particular sucking up the processor? Press Ctrl-Alt-Del then open up the the task manager. Choose the processes tab, then click on the CPU tab until it is sorted with the highest process on top. What process/processes are taking up the utilization - ideally, system idle process will be in the 90s.

Please report back so we can resolve your issue. Thank you.
