Question about ASUS X71SL-B2 Laptop
Settings did not save on my new Asus laptop. Bran new...out of the box.. Downloaded Mozilla Firefox, addons, set personal settings, homepage etc. Shut down and logged back in an hour or two later to the original settings. Mozilla was on my desktop but when I opened it, my homepage setting did not take and none of the addons I downloaded were there.
Also...my built in webcam is messed up. My image is upside down. I can take a picture and everything but if I have to flip the image after I take it.
Last, my I threw a DVD in - new movie, not burned - and I got a msg saying I need an encoder to view dvds. I have no idea what this means.
Hmmm... it's more updates, and drivers(software) than anything.
For the Mozzila issue, first make sure you have full Windows Updates, you should have updated it to Service Pack 3(XP) or Service Pack 2(Vista) and have all current updates that it tells you to install. Combatility issues occur with software, especially browsers if you don't have certain Windows Updates installed. If you are still having issues with Mozzilla, and have updated fully. I recommend downloading from another source like filehippo.com ,uninstall the other one, and reinstall from the fresh download. If the problem persists, visit the Mozilla support site ( http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/ ) and view the FAQ and support, or contact them for further help. Good luck with that.
With the Webcam check all the settings and make sure everything is correct. Read the manual that came with the laptop as there should be one for each peice of software like the webcam, if you still can't find a solution for that, visit the manufactures website for the webcam and the software. They should have an FAQ on their site.
Yes, different DVDs come in different formats. An encoder is any software program that runs that particular format. I use SM player which covers a lot of the coding issue. http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/
You can find individual codes via Google if you know what format it is. Much like a driver, it enables your software to connect with the information from the DVD.
