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.

Black screen Laptop. Flickers once on start. External Monitor works

Look for your computer's monitor settings, then adjust its refresh rate.
To modify a refresh rate on Windows, right-click anywhere on the Windows desktop.
Select "Properties," then choose the "Display Properties" tab on the window that appears.

Click the "Settings" option, then select "Advanced" from the window that appears.
Choose the "Monitor" tab, which lets you access a drop-down menu with the options for refresh settings adjustments. As a basic guide, use a setting of at least 75 hertz.

Confirm the change by clicking "Apply." Reboot the PC to ensure the new settings on the screen take effect.
Check your screen if the blinking problem is resolved. If not, try a higher refresh setting. If there is no change on the flickering of the screen, this means the problem is not caused by the screen's refresh rate. If your computer is not running on a battery or surge protector, shut it down to safely transfer the plug to another outlet Hope this helps.

Driver win 7

This company does not make a specific driver for Win7. But it should still work. Recheck your your video display adapter driver. Start by setting to the lowest resolution and try also 60hz refresh speed and then work up from there.
Here is the manufacturer web site:

Blue light blinking and computer cannot find the drive

Most Techs on here blame the A/C adepter on these units to be a failure BUT. However I as of yet agree with there opinions to be FACT. Sure try a adapter but I feel its the usb/sata controller inside that has given out.

Most Simple tech external drives use Seagate or maxitor depending on what version , however these drive are extractable from the unit witch can be put in a free drive bay and thus the data can be worked off them now, if the drive is clicking called the click of death then your chances are neal on getting the data unless you take it to a data recovery center.

Hope this information does help

My Sony MegaStorage CDP-CX455 400 Disc changer does not play CDs anymore. What can I do to fix it?

Pretty much the only thing you can try at home is cleaning the laser lens, if the cleaner works then remember to use it now and again.
If the CD lens cleaner does not work the take it to the nearest sony tech/dealer for repair. Multi CD systems are very complicated and need specialist attention.

Hope this helps

I agree. Never ever ever ever ever take your computer to Geek Squad. I don't know how many times I have to go to people's homes and correct something GS did or they tell me they reformatted their drive, losing all their data without telling them first, for something so simple that could have been fixed inside of 15 minutes. And they charge way above industry standard and most of their techs have had no formal training.

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