Try checking your disk / disk permissions (note:to verify disk you must start from the os x cd at the top of the screen click utilities -> disk utility->repair disk)in the finder window after login you can press command N (apple key and N key at the same time) open the applications folder and find the utilities folder open utilities folder and double click 'Disk Utility' select the disk you wish to repair from the list on the left and click repair disk permissions (note you should back up important files before performing any disk repair utilities) also if you cannot log into the finder you can simply insert the os x disk and hold the C key down after the first boot chime this will start from the cd drive (which may take a little while)

Sorry, a bit confused...still don't know how to log into my router connected to my PC desktop (using Windows XP)access. I have a Netgear router.


Start by opening a command window on your computer.

Click the Start Menu and Click Run and type CMD and press enter.
You should now have a Black Window open and a prompt.
Type ipconfig and press enter
This will now put up some sets of text.
The item named Default Gateway is a series of numbers such as 192.168.1.1
In your browser address bar type \\<Number in the Default Gateway line>
This now opens up the login screen for your router.
Type in your login and password for the router

Logon Change


Enable Log-On Screen


Windows, by default, is set to show the Welcome screen during startup.

To enable the log-on screen to show, go to "Start" menu and select "Control Panel".

In the control panel, click on "User Accounts".


In the "User Accounts" dialog-box, click "Change the way users log on or off" and uncheck the "Welcome Screen" option.

Click "Apply Options" to save the changes.

Change Log-On Screen Background Color


To change the log-on screen background color, go to the "Start" menu and click on "Run".

In the run dialog-box, type "mspaint" as the name of the program to "Open".


Click on "OK". In the "Paint" window that opens, select "Colors" from the main menu and click on "Edit Colors". In the "Edit Colors" dialog-box, select "Define custom colors".


Here pick the color of your choice and note down the "Red", "Green" and "Blue" values.

Write down these values somewhere.


Click "Cancel" and close the paint window without saving. Now, go to the "Start" menu, click "Run" and enter "regedit" as the name of the program to "Open".


In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\COLORS and double-click the "Background" string.


In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, change the values in the "Value data" field to the red, green and blue color values that you wrote down (e.g. 75 78 173).


The default value will be 0 78 152. Enter the values in the correct red-green-blue order, separated by a space. Close the registry editor and log off to see the changes.


Put Image in Log-On Screen Background
To put your favorite picture in the background of the log-on screen, click "Start", then "Run", and type in "regedit". In the registry editor, navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP and double-click the string "Wallpaper". In the "Edit String" dialog-box that opens up, enter the full path and filename of the image that you want to use as the background. The image must be in .bmp format. Click "OK" and close the registry editor. Log off to see the changes. hope this helps

Hi I have Dell inspiron 1720 (17 inches) laptop with intel centrino- window vista ultimate OS Problem: after system boots up, just before windows login, it comes "Please wait" and again it...


That's an interesting problem. It sounds like it's applying new display settings, but I'm not sure why it would do so over and over again. I would suggest trying to start Windows in "Safe Mode". To do that, as the computer is booting, hold down the F8 key to get the "Advanced Boot Options" menu. Maybe this will get you to a normal login screen. If so, you should try to change your display settings to the simplest possible and then reboot. I hope this helps.

Macbook screen goes black after I log in.


Since the screen does turn on at the login page, I would say that it doesn't seem as though anything is physically wrong with your computer. It sounds to me like it's a software issue. Either get someone to try and reinstall your video drivers or to back-up your documents, files, etc., format the hard drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of Mac OS.

Screen is frozen, just blue background with Windows xp logo,


Is the screen frozen BEFORE or AFTER the screensaver activates? If it's after then try doing a scandisk and defrag of the hard drive to clear up errors. Also make sure to go into MY COMPUTER, right click the C: drive and in PROPERTIES runa clean up to delete the temp files that may be corrupted.
