The problem is in the picture tube of your Monitor. Theres no problem on the hardware of your pc. You can also try to put an outboard video card for you to be sure whats really the problem. If that persit again I suggest you to look for an electronics to fix your monitor. Or if you have lots of money just buy a new monitor for good.

My kcup maker keeps brewing uses all the water to stop

If it's not on warranty anymore, try this last ditch process:

  • unplug machine and remove water reservoir
  • Make SURE it's unplugged!
  • flip machine upside down
  • tap bottom of machine firmly like you are burping a baby
  • shake the machine up and down, then side to side (while upside down).
  • tap the bottom of the machine again.
  • See if that fixed it!
  • If it didn't fix it, repeat process, but tap it harder (please don't hurt yourself, use glove or a rubber mallet, or something soft to protect your hands).

Good luck!

Pc is choppy audio and video

Assuming that you are watching video in a web browser, there are several possibilities. A lot of video on the web uses Flash Player for rendering, so make sure you are using the latest version which fixes security issues and performance problems. You may also want to clear your Flash cache as well as your web browser's cache files, especially if you are seeing a lot of hard disk activity when this is happening. You may also want to consider cleaning out all of the Windows temp files and directories as well as defragmenting your hard disk.

On a low-bandwidth connection, you may also encounter issues related to buffering. If the player allows changing the size of the buffer, you may want to enlarge it. It will cause the media stream to pull more content before it tries to play it and when there is an interruption in the stream, it has more time to pull more data before the buffer completely empties.

You should also use Task Manager to see how much of your total RAM is being used and page file usage. If you are using a lot of RAM and the system is paging, it will slow down everything but the most obvious ends up being choppy or distorted multimedia playback. If either of these are the case, you may want to add more RAM or reduce the number of currently running processes. Background process can consume a lot of memory or CPU cycles that interfere with your foreground process.

How can i get this genuine microsoft logo on my

This logo appears when the Microsoft OS installed on your computer has not been properly activated with a product key. This prevents Microsoft XP and Vista from installing Windows Updates like security patches and upgrades to Windows software.

You can find out more about the Windows Genuine Advantage program here.

If you think you have a valid copy of XP or Vista installed, call Microsoft tech support. Be prepared to provide the license key. If you PC was purchased as a package deal with XP or Vista installed, the key will be on a sticker on the side or back of your PC. If you XP or Vista was installed after purchase, the license key is stickered to the packaging the OS came in.
