SOURCE: after selecting user nothing happens. Just a

Just got off the phone with rosetta stone support for this exact problem. This is caused by a failure during the language update (I'm going to assume just before this happened it was prompting you to update the language files to the latest version, that was my scenario).

In any event, the fix is simple - Browse through your file system to C:\ProgramData\Rosetta Stone\ (you may have to set to show hidden files to see this path). Open the Products.Xml file and scroll to the very end. There is going to be a "<Product>" node (note, not <ProductS>) as the last subnode of <Products> and this node will have a Course Id of "null". If so, delete the entire <Product> node down to </Product>. Save, close the file, and restart Rosetta Stone -- voila.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire 5720Z Notebook - Screen flickers, goes blank then comes back on when screen/lid is adjusted

In most cases like that,where we have screen flickering,first look at the graphics card maybe the signal flex from the back of the screen is well fixed on the motherboard.then if it is well fixed on the board you will need to look at the signal board at the back of the screen maybe it is well fixed if it is not well fixed then fix it properly to solve ur problem then if the problem still persist then u will need to disable the VGA in device get to device manager u will need to open my computer and after that, u can right-click on it and then click on propertise then click on hardware and then click on device manager where u can disable the VGA.

SOURCE: laptop is locked out

This works great
Forgotten Power-on password
If the Power-on password is forgotten
and the Supervisor password is known,
simply go into the ThinkPad BIOS setup
utility and reset the Power-on password,
otherwise try the following:
Turn off the computer.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the backup battery. This is
located under the battery.
Turn on the computer and wait until the
POST ends. After the POST ends, the
password prompt does not appear. The POP
has been removed.
Reinstall the backup battery and the
battery pack.
Note: Some ThinkPad systems have the
ability to reset the Power-on passwords
in the ThinkPad BIOS setup utility if a
Supervisor password has been set.

SOURCE: 4 short beeps when powered on..blank screen

Four beeps is a system board trouble code. Try disconnecting all power sources including the CMOS battery and LiOn battery and let it sit for a few... then power it back up and see what you have.

SOURCE: cursor restricted to top left area using graphics tablet

It's the windows 7 tablet feature that causes the problem. To solve it you have to disable it. Go to start -> search write "services.msc" (without the strokes) and hit enter. Now search for "Tablet PC Input Service" double click on it and when a little window pops up set Disabled under startup type list box. Now if you want to see effect immediately there is a button Stop, click on it, and wait until service is stopped. When done close both windows. This way you don't have to even restart your pc.

Sounds like the tablet has 'Crashed". The 'brains' inside the tablet has got a problem working. Your better off taking it to an expert as the repair could be anything from a simple virus to an expensive parts replacement.

Chinese android T04-6 tablet screen goes blank

I'm having exactly the same problem. At first I thought it might be the battery, but if I unplug it, I can still hear facebook alerts, email alerts, etc and if I play around with it (turn it from side to side and press the lockout button repetitively) it will flash the lock screen for an instant - sometimes for a few enticing seconds - and then black. If I plug the charger in while it's powered off I can see the battery icon just fine. The screen WORKS - I just can't see the "desktop". I can't figure out how to do a hardcore reset other than the little pinhole button in the back, but it seems like that just powers it off. I can't see the screen if it gives any options, so I dunno. PLEASE help if you know anything.

Go to Control Panel, (top right View Small Icons). Then look for Power Options. On this page, you'll have the option to leave the monitor on. You should also check "Advanced Power Options". Don't be afraid of the word, "Advanced." It only means "customizeable"

If your mouse isn't waking your monitor, try the keyboard's space bar. I found it works better than the mouse at waking a sleeping computer

Why does my tablet suddenly start to randomly click and drag?

Sometimes the tablet (especially ones with buttons at the top such as Cut, Copy, Paste etc) reacts to pressure and not the tablet itself. Make sure theres nothing over them, that might help.
