A website has a lot of writing that is not seen. It tells the browser (IE, FireFox, etc...) how to show it. Some examples are: bold, different colors, different sizes and more. When you copy, you are including a lot of this hidden code. This could be causing your word processor to 'cough'. When you PASTE SPECIAL, only the text gets pasted.

Toshiba laptop shuts down in less than 5 minutes when powering on /cleaned all the dust out and no change

The laptop will need to be dismantled to the motherboard level, remove the fan, heatsink, and blow out dirt and dust with compressed air. Next remove the old thermal paste with a paper towel and rubbing alcohol, including the processor and heatsink. Next apply a thin layer of thermal paste to the processor and heatsink and assemble carefully, and don't forget the fan, plug in to motherboard. Now if it turns out the fan is faulty it must replaced quickly, other wise you risk destroying the processor ic.

Cant copy tables from internet to word 2007

Open a web browser such as Windows Internet Explorer by clicking the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner and double-clicking "Internet Explorer" in the program list.

  • 2 Display the webpage to be copied, then click the "Edit" tab at the top of the Internet Explorer screen.
  • 3 Click "Select All" to highlight the entire contents of the webpage, then click the right-hand mouse button and select "Copy" from the drop-down menu. This copies the entire webpage to a temporary memory clipboard.
  • 4 Open a blank Word document by clicking the "Start" button, choosing "All Programs," clicking "Microsoft Office" and double-clicking "Microsoft Word."
  • 5 Click the "Edit" tab at the top of the Word screen and choose "Paste Special."
  • 6 Select which paste option best suits your needs. For example, the "HTML Format" option will paste the copied webpage with all hyperlinks, images and text formatting intact. "Unformatted Text" option will paste only the text from a webpage without any of the original columns, section dividers or other formats.

    M. Works won't let me paste anything onto document f/the Int.

    After copying the contents you need go to edit on microsoft works and click on paste special. A small window should open asking you to select from three options. Click on unformatted unicode text then click ok. That should do it. Although italics and bold letters come out as regular print like the rest it does paste all that you've copied. This usually happens when you haven't updated your internet. After updating mine I no longer needed to do this process again.

    Toshiba boots up power light stays on and shuts down, bad m/b ?

    I own a Laptop Toshiba Satellite A75-S2131.
    This series have a problem with the cooling flow to the processor.
    The processor overheats and the laptop shuts down.To solve this particular problem you must tear down the laptop and clean up the processor heatsink (you will find it totally plugged or partially dirty).
    Find in the internet the step by step instructions (with photos) for dismantling this laptop. Do not forget to apply thermal paste between processor & heatsink.

    I hope this solution helps.
