You need to install either some 3rd party software i.e. powerdvd or go to this page and download the dvd decoder for media player http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

Lenovo Touch pad Stopped working


If you're positive you didn't unplug or rip anything while installing new USB ports, trying checking/updating or rolling back the drivers for the touch pad. Installing new USB ports could have mis-configured something and disabled or modified your drivers for the touch pad.

No there is no software which is used by the service provider...It is impossible to lock the touch screen.The problem of your screen should related to Hardware failure.This sensitive components can easily damage....Therefore,my advise is to visit nearest mobile repairing shop.They can repair it by changing the touch or let them check the if it is internal hardware.Good luck.Thanks for visiting fixya

The temperature buttons on my hayward 400IDL heater stopped working. I can turn the modes between pool, spa and standby but the buttons for raising and lowering the temp. arent working. no codes are coming...


You most likely need a new touch pad and they are almost impossible to troubleshoot. If everything else works except "button A" then button A is bad and in this case that means the whole thing is bad. Sorry...

No display on GA 81G1000 mk motherboard


Some history would be appreciated.
Has this computer ever worked?
Have you recently added new hardware or software?
Has anything happened recently that may have caused this (lightning storm, etc.)?

If the computer was working fine and for no apparent reason now won't POST, first remove everything from the outside (keyboard, mouse, etc.) except monitor. If that works, one of the items you removed is causing a problem.

If not, unplug power, open case, remove all expansion cards except for video, then try again. If you have never worked inside a computer, some help from a knowledgeable friend would be advised. Be sure to touch the metal case before touching any circuit board inside the computer.
Also disconnect the cabling from all of the drives and then retry boot.

Let me know if this helps. If not, we can do more providing you are comfortable working inside the computer at my direction.
