Desktop keeps refreshing


Sounds like malware, try rebooting and enter safe mode with networking (repeatedly hitting F8 as soon as it starts rebooting will bring up this menu) . Install ADWcleaner and run through the scan then reboot into normal mode

My desktop pointer divice will not open anything just keeps trying


Try shutting down ALL unnessary running programs. Use CCLEANER freeware at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/. This will clean the junk from your machine. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP page, disable ALL Unnessary startup programs. Open the Task Manager to see what is using all your memory/processor resourses. Runa Full Scan with MALWAREBYTES freeware : http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install, UNCHECK the PRO TRIAL version, you want the freeware version. Remove ALL unnessary TOOLBARS from your broswer, they are killers on broswer speed.

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.


Make sure that all the doors are closed and unlocked and wait for dome light to go out before starting.


Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch


Open drivers door


3 on/lock


Close/open drivers door


Wait 8 secs


On/lock/on (MY06-07) OR 2 on/lock OR on/lock (MY08)


Close drivers door

Press remote & keep pressing one button & then the other slowly(2 secs) until locks start working(they wont operate if key is in ignition).

The monitor keeps saying 'over range' and halts any programme. what dose over range mean


That error means you've either chosen a resolution or a refresh rate which exceeds your monitor's capabilities.
Select a lower refresh rate, and/or set back to the defaults.
Try booting into Safe Mode by tapping F8 at boot
when you are into the safe mode it will allow you to default your video card ...or ..even insert the driver and reinstall it ..Reinstalling the video driver will allow it to get to the default (optimal) values..
if you can open it in normal mode...and only on certain programs does this ..than you should first ..click right on desktop ..and after that properties..and setting s(usually the last one in the right ) ..in there check the resolution and set a lower value..

I've got a dell computer and i'm trying to swap the crt screen to a packard bell lcd screen and it wont display is there a driver i have to get or are they just not compatable


It probably a mismatch between resolution, colour depth and refresh rates. Before you disconnect the CRT change the resolution to 640x480 and 16 colours with a 60Hz refresh. Then connect the LCD and adjust the settings

Cant use my usb



Refresh and reinstall USB Ports Of Your Computer Hello there, the other day i tried refreshing and reinstalling the USB ports on my PC, as some of my connecting devices are not recognized. I present the detailed procedure on refreshing the USB ports.
Let’s go!!

Here are the steps to refresh/reinstall/uninstalling the USB ports on the computer.

The USB port needs to be refreshed to make sure that no other device has captured the USB port of the computer. The Mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk; what ever it may be.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager Button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external USB hard disk...USB hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main USB devices at the rear end USB port. As they require more power to initiate.


The above steps are for XP operating system. When coming to the matter of Vista, please note the changes below:
===========================
1) Right-click Computer icon from the desktop , and then click Properties to open the System Properties window, and then select the Device Manager tab.

2) Click the Plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers/Root hub.

3) Click the USB Composite Device entry to highlight it, and then click Remove. If a screen appears to confirm the deletion, confirm the deletion.

4) Disconnect the USB cable to the all-in-one, wait a couple seconds, and then reconnect the cable. This should restart Windows device detection (Plug and Play).

5) A New Hardware found screen may appear, click next through all of the screens that appear for the Wizard to install the USB Composite Device. Click Finish once the wizard completes.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
