Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Gmail page too wide

Sometimes in Google mail I get an email with a page so wide I have to scroll right and left to read it. Is there a way to narrow that page to the standard that most gmail messages are? Thanks much. ~ Chuck

    First, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Thanks for your suggestion to change my screen resolution. When I do that everything is so small I nearly have to squint to see it. You suggested downloading the correct video drivers. Can you tell me how to determine if I need different drivers, then where I can find them? Thanks so much. ~ Chuck

Dear Chuck:

I have a Dell Dimension 2400. Those came standard with a 15 inch monitor. Go to the blank screen, right click and click on properties, then click on settings, your resolution should be set to 1024 by 768. Or click on start, then click on control panel, double click on display, then click on settings, again your resolution should be set to 1024 by 768. If this does not solve your problem, then you need to find the correct video drivers for your monitor and download them.

    Dear Chuck:



    Go to Dell.com, and follow the sequence there of putting your computer info., it's very easy, just put in that you have a desktop, then a dimension 2400, and that you want the video drivers, when you get to that screen, hit download now on all of the drivers, one by one, because neither I nor you know which ones are missing, this should solve your problem. Inform me if this solves your problem.

HOW TO MAKE TEXT ON MY EMAIL LARGER


  1. If you are using gmail, click on the gear icon, which will open up a drop down menu.
  2. From there, click settings.
  3. Scroll down on the settings page until on the left you see "Default text style:"
  4. Click on the icon with a small and large "T" to the right of that, and select what size you want. I'm assuming you're using gmail, but I'm sure its a similar process for other providers.

How to delete an email address


Which email account? and adress yours or someone on you email list.
Email addresses: we have one for work, we have one for friends.
We have one for shopping, and sometimes we have one for the dubious Internet deals into which we get sucked.
Sometimes we get spammed so heavily we have to abandon one and get another.
Sometimes our main address isn't professional enough, so we create a new one.
Sometimes we just want to sign up with another service.
Next thing you know, you have more addresses than you can keep track of. It's time to start deleting the ones we don't need.

Access your Internet email provider in which you have the email account you wish to delete.
Type your username, password and then click on the "Sign In" button.
Locate your options button.
With Yahoo and Gmail accounts, it is usually located on the upper right hand side of the page. Click on the dropdown menu and find the "Mail Options" button and click on it.


Click on "Accounts," which should appear on your left top side; this depends on your email provider.
Make sure you do not confuse the "Account" button with the account information option.

Click on "Delete Account" and this should take care of getting rid of your email account.
Remove a Hotmail Email Address
A popular free email service offered by Microsoft is Hotmail. Setting up a Hotmail account is simple; so is closing one.
If your account has been hacked or your email box is inundated with spam, closing the account is an easy remedy.
Before closing your email address, alert friends, family members and associates of your plans. You may want to forward them a replacement email address, if you have one, to stay connected.

Go to the MSN homepage.
Click on the tab in the upper left corner labeled "Hotmail."
Log into your account by typing in your username, password and hitting the "Enter" key.

Click on the "Help" key located at the upper right of the page.
It will appear as a blue question mark.

Select "Table of Contents" from the sidebar on the left.
Click on "Setup a Windows Live Hotmail Account."
Scroll down to "Close Your Account."
It will be located at the bottom of the list.

Click on the link that says "Close Account."

Remove an Email Address From Outlook
Microsoft Outlook is a task manager application that is a part of the Microsoft Office software package.
The application allows users to send and receive emails, create tasks, take meeting notes and store calendar events.
Users can add multiple email accounts by creating different Outlook profiles.
The process is simple to remove an email address at any time and it can also be performed the same way for both the 2003 and 2007 versions of Outlook.

Minimize Microsoft Outlook if you have it open.
Click on the "Start" button on your computer and then click on the "Control Panel" option.
Click on the "User Accounts" option and then click on the "Mail" option.
The "Mail Setup" dialog box will then appear.


Click on the "Show Profiles" button.
The "Profiles" window will then appear and show all of the different email address you have set up with Outlook.

Click on the email address you want to remove.
Hold down the "CTRL" key on your keyboard and select multiple email address if you want to remove more than one.

Click on the "Remove" button.
Close out of the dialog box and the email address will be deleted from your Outlook account.

Which email account there are many ?

It is not uncommon for users to forget their user names and passwords, especially when trying to access an email account not often used.
Email providers like Yahoo! and Google are aware that users forget and have implemented a way to identify the user in this situation. In order to use this retrieval method, you must have submitted an alternate email address when you signed up for that email.

Go to the email sign-in page.
Notice the option underneath the login fields for users that have trouble signing in; in Yahoo! Mail this option is "I forgot my Yahoo! ID" and in Google Gmail this option is "Can't Access Your Account."
Click this option.
Enter the alternate email address entered when you set up up your email address.
Yahoo! Mail users also need to enter the birth date, country and postal code entered when the email address was set up. Click "Next."

Log in to your alternative email address and click the email provided.
Your email user name is available in the body of the email.
Click the link within that email to reset your email password.
To reset your email password, the provider might require that you answer your security question.
Go back to the email sign-in page and log in using your user name and new password.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/account/account-10.html
Hotmail have a forgotten password link but you must have another email adress to send your forgotten password to
just open up another email acc at hotmail/live.com eg: lumpy9@live.com
in the right hand corner on the hotmail homepage you should see help center
down in the bottom right hand corner tab click on that another page will open you should see another help center click on that again another page will open with account calender contacts essentials
click on the account tab another page will open with if you have forgotten your password or are having trouble signing in yet another page will open get help with your password problem
or signing in click on it you should see something like I forgot my password or I know my password but am having trouble signing in I think someone else is using my hotmail account
at the sign in for your hotmail account click on forgot password tab another page will open then on the reset password tab

How do i get to my mail


do you want to set up an email account ?

Anyone can have an email address!

These days, email is a mandatory part of communication.

It's a cheap and easy way to send a message to anyone you know.


Decide what email provider you wish to use for your email service.

If you need a personal account for basic email activity, any of the major website email services can provide you with a package that will fit your needs.


The major free email providers are Google, Yahoo, and MSN Hotmail. For this article's purposes, we will be using Google's Gmail email service.


In your website's address bar, type www.google.com, and hit "enter."

In the top left-hand corner of the page, you will see the words "web", "images", "maps", "news", "shopping", "Gmail", and "more". Click on the word "Gmail."


You will be taken to the Google Mail access page. Since you do not have a Gmail account, you will click on the phrase "Sign up for Gmail" that is located on the lower right-hand side of the page.


Enter your first and last name in the boxes, then create your "desired login name."

This is the name that will be at the first of your email address.


For example, if your name is "Jane Doe" and you want your email address to reflect your name, you would put "JaneDoe" together in the desired log-in box.


Click on the "check availability!" button, to see if anyone else has already claimed your log-in name. If the name isn't available, Google will give you a list of available options that are similar to your requested login name.


If you do not agree with any of the recommended log-in names, then be creative by adding your birthday or another set of numbers that is memorable to you.


For example, "JaneDoe" may not be available, but "JaneDoe1966" might be up for grabs. Take your time with this step and develop a log-in name that is comfortable and important to you.


Create an email account password. Google requires your passwords to be a minimum of 8 characters in length.

You can create a password using letters, numbers, or symbols combined.


Passwords are tricky because you don't want to create one that you will forget, but you don't want to have a password that is too easy for others to guess.


Do your best to create a "strong" password that will withstand the attempts of potential hackers. A good password that could be virtually "unguessable" by others would be the combination of your grandmother's maiden name and her birth month and year.


For example, if your grandmother's maiden name is "Curtis" and her birthday is November 24th, your password could be "curtis1124." Note: if you capitalize any of your password's letters, then you must capitalize it every time you enter it.


Create a "security question."

This question might help you out later on, if you've forgotten your password and need help getting new one.


Choose a question from the selected questions and plug in your answer.

You should write down your question and answer so that you can remember it if need be.

The next step is to enter a secondary email address, but if you do not have another email you can leave this spot blank.


It is required to email your alternate address in the event you forget your password to this address.


Enter the "word verification" into the box.

The letters, numbers or symbols might appear a bit distorted, so be careful to decipher then correctly before you type them into the box.


This step is done for security and ensures that you are not a spammer.


Read through the "terms of service" to make sure you are clear on your accounts requirements.

If you agree with the terms, click the button "I accept.

Create my account" button.

Congratulations! You now have an email address!


Hope this helps

I am getting message when attempting to open links, "Server not found"?


Email links is when you are getting this message or is it when you try to open an internet browser to go to any web page?

If you're on the internet successfully and you are clicking a email link, then I would say the link is bad. You can type the address of the email provider and see if you can get there successfully. If you don't know the address just go to www.google.com and in the search box type your email provider. Example: Yahoo Mail or Google Mail,or GMail or Hotmail.

Email messages occasionaly disappear after being cancelled , cannot be found anywhere?


If you canceled or deleted you can retrieve them in most web email clients.

GMail:
If you've deleted a message permanently, by clicking Delete Forever in your Spam or Trash, it isn't possible to recover the message.
If you've moved a message to Trash, by clicking Delete, but it's been fewer than 30 days and you haven't permanently deleted it, follow these steps to put it back in your inbox:
  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click Trash along the left side of any Gmail page. (If you don't see Trash along the left side of your Gmail page, go to the Labels tab in Settings, then click the show link next to the Trash label.)
  3. Locate the message you'd like to move to your inbox, and check the box next to the sender's name.
  4. Click Move to Inbox.
Yahoo:
Of course, you can also undelete a message quickly as long as it is still in your Yahoo! Mail's Trash folder.
Undelete Mail in Yahoo! Mail To undelete a message in Yahoo! Mail or Yahoo! Mail Classic:
  • Go to the Trash folder.
  • Open the desired message.
  • Click Move in the Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
  • Select Inbox or any other folder to recover the message.
    • In Yahoo! Mail, you can also drag and drop the email to any folder, of course.
Also you can serach on Yahoo itself by look at the left upper corner you can see a search bar if you
remember some info. from the sender.
