Disply grey with no color

When I open excel, work, etc the ribbon is grey with no color.  When using fill in, no color is filled into the active cell.

I ran diagnostic test and found no problems.  I took the repair option under change/remove, but this did not help either.  I changed my display settings, and that did not work.

I am computer dumb and am out of options I know about.

Please advise

I have a kenmore washer that will fill but nothing else. No clicking when the lid is raised or lowered. no noise period from anywhere


With the lid open there should be a small opening on the top where the plunger on the lid activates the lid switch, use a pen to depress that grey plastic switch. If you do not hear a click when depressed, it is probably your lid switch. You can find the replacement part at www.searspartsdirect.com, with your model #.

I bought the new laptop with Windows7 genuine but the MS Office keeps on asking me for the key?


Usually when you purchase a new PC from the store, MS OFFICE will give you a 30 or 60 day trial of their software...if your trial period ends, it will no longer allow you to use the software unless you buy an activation key. I can suggest a free alternative to MS office. This software opens MS Office documents and has pretty much every capability that MS has too. For example, at work someone sends you an Excel document filled with info...you can still open that using OPEN OFFICE Calc.

In Open Office...ms word is "Writer", ms excel is "Calc", ms powerpoint is "Impress"...same concept but fully compatible.

Download it and try it out -- www.openoffice.org

I have use a mobile nokia 6630 but actully on mobile and no disply plesed saj what is the problem , disply , are disply (ic). mobile on uswe the mobile is the cotin working but no disply


Hello,

The problem is from the ribbon that attach the screen to the main board of the phone, it is not properly connected that is why you do not have display. If the phone should have fallen, then the screen might be faulty. If it did not fall from you, then it means the ribbon of the screen is disconnected from the phone.

First, try to flash the phone, then you open it up carefully. And sit the ribbon that links the screen to the main panel of the phone properly.

And if that does not help, then you need to replace the screen of the phone.

Take care

HOW DO I REPLACE THE INK .I BOUGHT THE INK BUT FOR GOT HOW TO PUT IT IN


In order to replace the ink..please follow the following steps

#1
Spread out a piece of newspaper where you plan to work. Remove the supplies from the refill kit. The Lexmark 44 will have one bottle of black ink, one thumb drill and one syringe. The Lexmark 43 will have one bottle each cyan, magenta and yellow, three syringes and one thumb drill.
#2
Remove the label from the ink cartridge. The black refill hole is at the top of the ink cartridge. Use a toothpick to check the color of each fill hole on the color ink cartridge. Generally, the magenta is at the top of the cartridge, the yellow is at the left center and the cyan is at the right center.
#3
Use the thumb drill to open up the fill hole to fit the syringe needle. Place the tip of the thumb drill on the fill hole and twist until the hole opens up larger. Do this for each color hole on the color ink cartridge.
#4
Fill each syringe with 7 ml of color ink (one for each color) and 15 ml of black ink. Insert the syringe needle into the bottle of ink and pull the plunger upwards.
#5
Place the tip of the syringe needle into the fill hole. Slowly press down on the plunger. If the ink seeps out while filling, stop filling the cartridge and wipe up the ink with a paper towel. Some cartridges may not need the full amount of ink. Repeat this step for each of the colored ink fill holes.
#6
Replace the ink cartridge in the carriage of the printer. Run one to three test pages to cycle the ink and check the printing. Use any document with color on it for the Lexmark 43 and any document with black text for the Lexmark 44.

Thanks

I cannot use fill colour for shapes, text boxes etc on either Word or Publisher -Office 2007 I click on fill colour but shape remains blank - a series of dots do appear around the shape.


Apply a different shape fill You can fill a selected shape (such as data markers, titles, data labels, or a legend) with a solid color, gradient, picture, or texture. You cannot use shape fill to format lines in a chart (such as gridlines, axes, trendlines, or error bars).

On a chart, click the chart element that you want to change, or do the following to select it from a list of chart elements:
  1. Click a chart. This displays the Chart Tools, adding the Design, Layout, and Format tabs.
  2. On the Format tab, in the Current Selection group, click the arrow next to the Chart Elements box, and then click the chart element that you want to use.
On the Format tab, in the Shape Styles group, click Shape Fill


  1. Do one of the following:
    • To use a different fill color, under Theme Colors or Standard Colors, click the color that you want to use. Tip Before you apply a different color, you can quickly preview how that color affects the chart. When you point to colors that you may want to use, the selected chart element will be displayed in that color on the chart.
    • To remove the color from the selected chart element, click No Fill.
    • To use a fill color that is not available under Theme Colors or Standard Colors, click More Fill Colors. In the Colors dialog box, specify the color that you want to use on the Standard or Custom tab, and then click OK. Custom fill colors that you create are added under Recent Colors so that you can use them again.
    • To fill the shape with a picture, click Picture. In the Insert Picture dialog box, click the picture that you want to use, and then click Insert.
    • To use a gradient effect for the selected fill color, click Gradient, and then under Variations, click the gradient style that you want to use. For additional gradient styles, click More Gradients, and then in the Fill category, click the gradient options that you want to use.
    • To use a texture fill, click Texture, and then click the texture that you want to use.
Tip If you don't like the change that you made, you can undo it immediately. On the Quick Access Toolbar, click Undo default.aspx?assetid=za101819851033, or press CTRL+Z.

Forgot password to open Excel sheet


If you mean that you can open the Workbook and read the Worksheet - then all you have to do is select all and paste it to another Worksheet. This will allow for changes of formulas etc.

If you mean the whole Workbook - then I dunno.

In future, either use the same password for everything (easy to remember) or Protect the work with nothing entered into the password field (leave this blank). This last will protect the work from people who try to guess your password, but will be easy for you to remember - eg every password is left blank.

If you must use unique passwords, then keep a record of them somewhere other than on your computer.

Sorry I can't help with the "Workbook" solution - but somebody else out ther may be able to do so.
