It sounds a bit like an infra red icon but I don't really know. Go to connectivity and infra red and turn infra red off. Hope this helps

My ringgrip smartglow 6 hour timer globe which is used infrequently (when I go on holidays) has stopped working (no illumination). As I consider that it has not had a lot of work, the question is, is there...

I have three solutions to help you.

1/ The globe may have been bumped or jarred and the filament may be broken
The filament can be repaired.
Look through the small area of clear glass near the neck of the bulb, using a magnifying glass; and a torch at that area and other areas around the globe
to inspect the filament.
With your eye follow the filament connections very slowly from one end to the other,
until you find the break (if any).
Memorise roughly where it has the break in proportion to some reference on the outside of the globe (felt pen mark).
Then insert the globe into a portable corded fitting (mechanics light).
Holding the fitting in your hand, switch it on.
Move your hand around (so the globe is either upside down, left, right, or diagonal, etc),
gently jarring the globe, remembering the position of the break of the filament, try to cause the filament's broken end to touch the terminal where it originally broke off from (doesn't have to be the exact position of the terminal, but in that area).
With a little patience, you may cause it to touch, and when you do, the light will instantly come on, the filament will be repaired (welded back on), and may even outlast any other part of filament breaking in future.
Now the instant it comes on, don't move your hand for a minute or so, to allow it to properly weld, then switch off, allow it to cool, then remove from portable fitting.

2/ If the problem is not the filament, the electronics can also be repaired.
They are located in the bayonet part of the globe,
and are the second cause of failure.
A skilled technician can access and repair that area
for only $10 grand.

3/ A more economical remedy, however, is to hold the globe upside down
in your hand,
then slowly release it from a twenty storey window.

Hope one of these helps !

How do i convert from bing back to google. I have Windows XP

In Internter Explorer look at the top right search area and you'll see the Bing logo near a magnifying glass icon, Further to the right straight up from the scroll bar, you'll see another magnifying glass icon (smaller size) and a drop down arrow to its right. Left-click the drop-down arrow and selet Google. The Google name should now replace the Bing logo for search default. On Firefox it's essentially the same process, but the drop-down arrow is on the left of the search window and to the left of the search engine icon.

The language is Chinese and i want it in English. The system is XP

To change the language, go to the control panel (start, settings and then control panel and being your can't read what it says do this: Click start and then the first ICON should be a red box, then a yellowish key, followed by a blue & white box with lines trailing from it, keep going up and you will see the question mark in a cirlcle and then the magnifying glass and the next ICON should be a picture of a clip board with a pen - thats settings. Slide to the right and the first choice is control panel)

When you open th control panel and the top left there is wording to change the view to classic. Just click on the words and hit "ok". Then look for the ICON with the picture of the globe. Click on it and where it says " Chinese" change it by clicking the arrow and moving to english. Then hit ok and close the box. This should change the language back to english and solve the problem.

This will not work if your not using a classic style task bar. If this is the case please repost and state that and I will walk you through locating all of the above using the alternate set up.
