Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor vertical lines

I booted my computer up as normal, but when the prompt for my windows password (Windows XP Home Service Pack 2) and blue field came up, I had vertical lines off the the white password enter area and windows picture blue field. I also saw in the top left of the screen a circle with verticle lines. I continued to enter the internet, thinking it would go away, I checked my monitor connections and they were all plugged in properly, upon accessing Yahoo, my screen went to a few lines here and there to a complete fuzzy red lines all over. Since, I take care of my equipment, I was dumfounded as to why this is occuring. I checked my monitor settings on the bottom right of the monitor itself and clicked factory restore. Did I get rid of the problum or from it reoccuring again?

Dear Choji,

If obviously the problem has not occured again then you have solved it on your own. Bravo to that. You shoud give yourself a proud pat on your back. But if the problem still exists, then its with the device driver settings of the monitor. Try reinstalling the monitor by reinstalling its drivers.

If this still does not help then refer to an authoised service personel.

I haveMicrosoft Windows XP Professional on my computer and in the last few day then i put my computer on its say windows installer can find why is thay


I am assuming your mean it cannot find the installation of windows...

it sounds like the boot record has become corrupted.

With the install disk in the cd rom, load your pc and choose to Boot from CD - you may need to go into the BIOS to change the CD to be your first boot device (you get to the BIOS by pressing F10 on start up)

When Windows goes through its blue loading screen follow the screen prompts until you can see the option to "Press R to repair a windows installation".

Press R

When the DOS prompt appears on the screen choose the Windows installation you wish to repair (usually 1 and press ENTER)

When prompted for the administrator password either enter the password you have specified or if you have never set a password press ENTER

Type:

FIXMBR
Choose Yes
Press Enter

Reboot yuour PC.

Hope this helps...

If not please provide the exact error message in a post

Forgot my password for logging on computer


Passwords. Those ubiquitious alpha-numeric codes that protect us and give us access to everything digital. Unfortunately, passwords can be confusing because, though your computer likely won't forget a password, you very well might. When this happens, you can be locked out from your whole system, as in the case of the Windows XP Administrator Password. This article will show you how to remove an Administrator password.
Instructions:
Insert your Windows XP CD into your CD drive and boot your computer. If you receive the message "press any key to boot from CD," press any key.
Step 2 Press Enter to setup Windows. After accepting the license agreement, you wil be asked if you want start a Repair process.
Step 3 Press R to begin the Repair process. Setup will now check your disks and then start copying files, which can take several minutes. After this, reboot. Let the computer boot normally (do not press a key to boot from CD).
Step 4 Keep your eye on the lower left hand side of the screen. When you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10. This will open a command line console.
Step 5 Type NUSRMGR.CPL at the prompt and press Enter. This will give you access to User Accounts. Remove or change your password. Write it down! After the repair is finished, you will be able to log on with your new password.
Second way:there is some recovery tool like Windows Password Recovery Tool can help you.

Good luck!

HOW DO I BLOCK AN IP?...IM GETING HACKED, IT WONT STOP


The easiest means to block IP addresses in Windows XP is to use Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) filtering rules. The primary reason to block IP addresses is to protect your computer from network-based threats, such as computer worms, viruses and other malware. To block IP addresses in Windows XP, you will need to activate and configure IPSeccmd, the firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP. IPSeccmd does not come preinstalled with XP on your computer. It can be found on Disk 2 of your service pack upgrade or downloaded from Microsoft directly.



  1. Install IPSeccmd from your Window's XP Service Pack 2 installation disk.
  2. Step 2 Open the Command Prompt on your computer by selecting "Start > Run" from the primary file menu and type the word "cmd" in the blank text field that appears.
  3. Step 3 Enter the following command at the DOS command prompt to block a specific communication type (UDP or TCP) and port number on your computer:
    "IPSeccmd.exe -f [*=0:PortNumber:Protocol]
  4. Step 4 Open the user interface for IPSeccmd on your desktop, and select the "General" tab under the "Policy" section. Choose the "IP Block" option and enter the specific IP address of the host(s) that you desire to block. Exit the application when complete.
