The text on my pc keeps going blue, how can I stop it?


Windows allows you to change the themes of your computer. This includes the wallpaper, the screensaver when your computer is idle, any noises it makes, and even the color of the toolbars and windows. Sometimes, however, when you restart your computer, the theme will revert back to the Windows default theme, which is called Aero. This can be because you have not disabled Aero, because your performance settings are using too much energy, or because your screen resolution is too high or low for the theme you are using.
Screen Resolution b> The higher your screen resolution, the sharper the images and text will appear. Sometimes, however, the of the wallpaper for the theme is not the same as the screen resolution. This can cause your theme to revert back to the default. To fix this, click the "Start" button. Then click "Control Panel." In the "Control Panel" window click "Adjust Screen Resolution" under "Appearance and Personalization." Select the resolution that is the same as your wallpaper. b> Performance Settings b> If your computer is running on high performance settings, your computer's energy will be used quickly and Windows may automatically change the screen saver to keep the energy from running to low. To change your performance settings, open the "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Then click "Change Battery Settings" under "Power Options" and select "Power Saver" or "Balance." b> Disable Aero b> Aero is the default theme setting for Windows Vista and Windows 7. If you try to change your theme and it reverts back to Aero, it is because Aero is still not disabled. To disable Aero, right-click on your desktop and click "Personalize." A window of all the themes on your computer will open. You will see "My Themes," which are any themes you have created, and "Aero Themes" under it. To disable Aero, click "Save Theme" under "My Themes" to make your current settings default, or select one of the themes under "My Themes." This will make that theme the default. b> Troubleshooter b> If you still cannot figure out why Windows changes the theme back to the default after restarting, you can use Windows's built-in troubleshooter. The troubleshooter will find the source of the problem and automatically fix it for you. To use the troubleshooter for your theme, open the "Control Panel" and click "System and Security." Then click "Troubleshoot Common Problems." Under "Action Center," select "Appearance and Personalization." The troubleshooter will run. When you restart after it completes its action, your theme should stay the same. Hope this helps.

Reddy heater runs but not consintently shuts down and have to restart it. model 165DT


Shuts down in 5 seconds? If so, it is supposed to. If the flame is not perfect. Read on..

The ignitor (glowbar) only glows for 5-7 seconds- just long enough to create combustion. Once the flame starts- the flame must keep itself going. So if at anytime the flame goes out- it stays out- there is nothing to restart it.

What most people don't realize is that the photocell is looking for a flame with perfect color, which means the heater is not emitting pollutants. If the flame runs too rich or too lean (polluting) the photocell shuts the unit down. No self re-start.

Start troubleshooting by setting the pump pressure. Pump pressure is directly related to fuel delivery. Poor fuel delivery equal poor flame equals shutdown.

How can i reboot my computer please


Rebooting a computer means, pressing the Reset/Restart button. But if you wish to securely restart it, click Start (Windows XP) and then "ShutDown" button, again click "Restart". There's another option when Windows XP is in Classic mode, once you press the Shutdown button, you'll see a small window showing "Shutdown", you can click the arrow button next to the "Shutdown" and then select "Restart", now click the "Ok" button to restart the system. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, click "Start", if you don't see the "Restart" button, you might be seeing the "Shutdown" button, just next to the "Shutdown" button, there's a small right arrow button, click it and select "Restart". Your system will restart.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Vista theme changes to windows classic upon restart


Are you wondering how to change the theme back to the "Vista Theme?" If so open "Theme Settings" by clicking the "Start" button, clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Appearance and Personalization," clicking "Personalization," and then clicking "Theme," then choose your desired theme.
If you've done this already, then you have a problem, usually when your appearance settings won't stay the way you want them to, and they keep revering to something else, it means that you have a virus on your machine.
To fix this you can try several things, try booting up in safe mode, and then restarting your computer.
You can reinstall Vista, by using the "Install discs" that came with your machine.
Hope this helps!

Viao PCG-GRX650 won't shut down fully


DaveBaker,

Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.


Go to start>run>then type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely.

Next
Try doing this. Hold down "ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick.

And, finally

You cannot log off, restart, or shut down your Windows XP-based computer This article talks about an issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.


Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you.
Thanks much!
