If your M60 has the nvidia FX Go700 video adapter as mine does you will find the resolve in the nvidia display settings. Right mouse click in an unoccupied area of the desktop. In the middle of the pop-up menu left mouse click on NVIDIA Display. Left mouse click Laptop Display. From the Quadro FX Go 700 menu , left mouse click Digital Flat Panel Display. If your problem is as I understand it, the selection in the menu that is displayed now is "centered output" to correct this, select the top menu item, "Display adapter scaling". click OK and you are back to the real world.

Possibly your resolution?

Try right clicking on your desktop, selecting properties > settings tab

Click on the screen resolution slider and drag to the left to reduce the resolution. You will be prompted to accept changes within 10 seconds or the settings will revert.

Vaio sat survey not working


The VAIO Sat Survey is an Application that loads at the Startup. If the Application in the Computer is corrupted, it will display an error message that the "VAIO Sat Survey has stopped working".

You can just remove the "VAIO Survey/VAIO Sat Survey" from the startup items to fix the error message.

Please follow the below steps to disable the Application from starting automatically and fix the error message.

  2. Then, in the run window, please type "msconfig".
  3. This will open the "System Configuration Utility" window.
  4. In the System Configuration Utility window, please click the "Startup" tab.
  5. In the startup tab, please scroll down to view the "VAIO Sar Survey/VAIO Survey.
  6. Then, please remove the check mark next to the above items.
  7. Then, please click the "Apply" and "OK" buttons.
  8. The Computer will prompt to restart.
  9. Please restart the Computer.

Too many icons on Systray


Most of the icons are related to software you have installed. To shutdown these applications, the easiest way to temporarily turn them off is to run "msconfig". Try doing this as follows...
Press and hold the Windows Logo Key, usually located left of the space bar. While holding this key down, press and immediately release the "R" key. In the box that appears type msconfig and press the enter key or click ok. If you have administrative access, you will see a dialog appear with several tabs across the top. Choose the startup tab and uncheck each application you do not want to run. apply the settings and restart your computer. You can always go back and uncheck choices you want to have run.

My computer brings up the wallpaper screen and stops. There is a icon to the right of the speeker button that is lit and reads "9". What is this?


Im not sure of what it is but I have in mine that you or someone did accidentally installed a software on your computer. Or in a case that your computer is positive for some either a virus or a spyware infections. Make sure to backup first all of your important file into a USB flash drive or external hard drive then have to do a System Restore on a previous date that your laptop is working okay. By accessing the System Restore just go to START >> ACCESSORIES >> System Restore. There have to follow the instructions then the computer will restarts. If in a case still same thing happen, try another previous dates. One other thing, try to check your startup items. In order to do that type "msconfig" in the RUN windows by clicking START >> RUN. After clicking the okay button it will shows up the System Configuration Utility window. Go to the "Startup" tab and check one by one regarding the name of the application that is/are installed on your computer. You can uncheck some unneccessary application that is not required to have everytime your computer boot up into Windows desktop screen.All of the Startup items will not coz harm on your computer, but have to make surewhich is/are important for you to retain, like having the DSL to startup automatically. Hope these things help. Thank you.

My pc is very slow what should be done?it is having 1gb ram, dual processor and 180 gb hdd.


do virus scan. Make sure you have only ONE anti virus system on your PC - otherwise it will slow down dramatically
disable startup items.
Go to start->RUN -> type in msconfig press enter
Then go to startup and disable all and test if speed will increase.
If it will get faster - you can enable startups one by one and see which program slowing down your PC

Used laptop


Hi

It could be some of your system application cause your internet explorer not to open. I suggest to try the steps below.

1. Click start
2, go to Run, then type this command in the box.

msconfig

a pop window will show up on the screen.

3. Look for Services as one of the tab of the window.

4. Under services, look for a smal box at the bottom portion of the screen that say "hide all microsoft services" then click on disable all.

5. Look for Startup tab on the same window screen. Then click on Disable all. Click on apply then "Ok/ Close"

6. Restart your computer. After restarting your computer. You will see the system configuration utility window. just put a check on a small box that say "Do no show the message" then click Ok.

7. Try to open your internet explorer icon.


Keep me posted.

Thanks.
