Look into Control Panel and see whether there isn't a way to toggle this indicator back into the on position, such that it will show up on your Taskbar, to indicate the status of your power, battery or A/C.

Acer is stuck on configuring windows updates 30% cpmplete do not turn off computer since yesterday


This usually indicates that Windows update has found something that it cannot handle: if it has been stuck for that long, then your only option is to power-off and re-start the Netbook.
In most case, Windows will recover itself and maybe even roll-back: if not, go to Windows recovery mode and select appropriate option.
Hope it helps.

Re: my new LG Ally phone.... I downloaded a system update and an app called ThinkFree Office a week ago. I have gone to ThinkFree Office and can't figure out what it does. The real problem I have though is...


ThinkFree Office is an app that will allow you to view and edit files in various Microsoft Office formats. The version that comes with the Ally is a premium version that can handle both the "old" file types as well as the new ".docx" etc. It lets you view and edit your Office files on the go on the phone.

As for the downloading indicator, have you rebooted the phone? Try turning it off, waiting about 30 seconds and then turn it back on. You can also try dragging down the menu bar (place your finger on it and swipe down) and then pushing the "Clear" button that appears.

Most probably the drivers downloaded from Nvidia is not the correct version or an older version for your video card. That is probably windows revert the best options drivers for your video card. You can check the version or the date windows automatically installed from the device manager. You also can also use "Microsoft Updates" to update your drivers.

To remove the video drivers, go to "safemode" and from the "device manager" uninstalled the video drivers.Be sure to download the correct version for you video card and run the installer from Nvidia.

Do update your DirectX too.

Hope it helps.

Philips Go Gear MP3/Video Player 2 GB (Model SA3125)


The Phillips Go Gear is not compatible to Windows Vista, and there is nothing one can download to make it compatible. I contacted Phillips, and they said that there are no plans to update the software so that it works on Vista. Pass this to everyone that is having a similar problem. Contact Phillips on their website, and request that the Phillips Go Gear software be updated to include Windows Vista. If more people raise a stink (especially threatening never to buy Phillips products), maybe something will be done.
