I've never done this myself, but if you can get an RSS "feed" from the page, you can set it to refresh every 15 minutes in the "content" tab of internet explorer properties.

Chefville will freeze off and on and refresh takes forever

You can be having boot sector problems in your hard drive, or you are not running sufficient RAM to run the game you are playing. Freezing happens when the 'Brain' cant find what it is expected to do next. How much ram do you have? Did you check the system minimums for the game b4 you installed it? Newer games are designed to work with hi tech machines and tend to confuse older machines by their demands.

Where in simple terms do I get to a browser to find a refresh button

The simplist and easiest way to refresh a web page is to press F5 which reloads the page you are on.

That will work on IE and Firefox.

Hope this helps.

Computer was shut down and power turned off. When i restarted the system the printer and monitor came on but the tower is not getting any power. cords are all plugged in and checked outlet works. seems...


If the outlet is good and the cord is good, you may have indeed blown the fuse in the power supply. That is the only fuse. The fuse in the power supply is usually "hard-wired". Not necessarily, but usually. You would need someone familiar with them to replace it if it is blown.

Some computers have a green LED on the back of the computer near the power cord. Do you have one? Is it on? You can also look to see if the small green LED is on on the motherboard.

If you get no indication of power, the power supply is probably gone. A new on is about $25 and pretty simple to replace.

Hope this helps.

This might seem like a simple question. I just bought a new Dell desktop. When I get it how can I transfer my e-mail and address ,homepage etc. over to my new computer? I know Windows7 has an easy transfer...

Take your Windows 7 Dvd to your old system, and insert it while in windows. When the DVD autoplays, it will have an option for the easy transfer wizard, you can open the wizard there.
You can move data via a USB key or to a folder across your network.
Here is a link for Vista, the 7 wizard works pretty much the same

Installed gforce fx 5700 drivers in vgc-v517g and

The problem could be caused due to high refresh rate or resolution settings on the video card that are not compatible with the monitor.

Restart the computer and keep tapping on the F8 screen before the windows starts to load. Highlight the option enable VGA mode and hit enter. Your windows would start with defualt settings for the video card. Check if the problem is still there. Otherwise lower the screen resolution and refresh rate according to the monitor you have.

How can i get audio drivers for dell GX260

Hey bigmojo,

Its pretty simple really all you need to do is follow this link,

Then select your Operating System e.g., Windows XP, 2000, 98.

Then select the drivers you are looking for, so say you need your audio drivers, select audio, then select your driver.

I would recommend just using the second option, download from browser very simple, download the driver and point it to where you want it saved, I usually use my desktop because it is easy to find. Then run the driver installation file wait for the install to get done then restart your computer.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for using fixya!

The optical drive itself is faulty. If the computer is under warranty, contact HP to have a tech come out and replace it. As an HP warranty tech, I see this quite a bit.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.
