Hi ,
Turn the computer off and then turn the computer off and then tapp the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you release the power button after pressing it .Keep on tapping the key until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option.Then select safe mode and hit the enter key ,wait till it takes you to the log on screen.Once you are there click on admininstrator and hit enter key ,check if you get the error or not .If u dont get the error go to start?run?type msconfig?hit enter?you get the system confuguration page?click on the the start up tab ?click disable all ?apply?click on the services tab? click disable all ?apply ?click on ok or close to exit from the page and then clik on restart when it prompts you to .Then the computer will take you to the normal mode check if you get the error or not if you dont then there is a program that is gone currupt and is causing the error to come up .To find what program has gone corrupt again go to the configuration page and then enable the startup programs restart the computer if u dont get the error go to the servoces tab uncheck one or more program restart and then check so this way you will have to isolate the program that is causing the error to come up and once you find the program just uncheck that particular program this will take care of the issue .
Please try this before you do the steps moentioned above ,turn the computer off and then tapp the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you release the power button after pressing it .Keep on tapping the key until you get a black screen that says advance boot menu option.Then select safe mode and hit the enter key ,wait till it takes you to the log on screen.Once you are there click on admininstrator and hit enter key.When it takes you to the desktop go to start?all programs ?accessories?system tools and then system restore.It will take time for the restore page to come up once its there click on the option that says restore my computer to an earlier time ?click next?select a date from tha calander and the select a date when you thin that the comuter was not generating the error message.The date that you are selecting has to be in bold then click on next next to exit from the wizard and the computer will restore itself the computer will restart and now if the restore is succesful you should not get the error message.

Samsung sync master 226 cw pink screen problem


Hello,

A pink or red color on the screen indicates the back light bulbs are failing. The bulbs are just small florescent bulbs like used in your home or office lights. When they start to go out they put our red or pink light instead of white light. You can order the bulbs and replace them in the unit if you want to repair it. You can get the bulbs from http://www.ccflwarehouse.com/lampfinder.html
But this repair is very time consuming because the lights are very fragile and you have to fully disassemble the LCD panel in the monitor to replace the bulbs.

How do you get the picture in picture to work? What two sources can you use, a cable box and what?


The Picture in Picture (PIP) on VIZIO televisions works on multiple input sources. This means you have to have signal or a device connected to more than one input on the television and have both inputs selected to display the information going to them. Here is an example. Let's say you have an HD cable box connected to your television and you would like to have more than one channel displayed on the screen in order to keep an eye on both football games at the same time. With one device connected that's not going to work out the way our TV functions. What you want to do is get a coaxial splitter and two extra coaxial cables; these can be found anywhere home theater equipment is sold. Then follow these steps.

1. Turn off both your cable box and television.

2. Take the coaxial cable that comes OUT from the wall and connects to the IN of your cable box and disconnect it.

3. Connect that cable to the IN on your coaxial splitter.

4. Connect your two extra coaxial cables to the OUTs on your coaxial splitter. We will call them cable 1 and Cable 2, just because.

5. Connect cable 1 directly to the DTV/TV input on your television.

6. Connect Cable 2 directly to the IN on your cable box, this will be the same connection you removed it from in step #2. Your HD cable box should still be connected to your television with either an HDMI cable or Component cables (Identified by their Green, Red, Blue colors for video and Red and White cables for audio.)

7. Power on both the cable box and your television. Using the INPUT button on your VIZIO remote select the input connection where your cable box is located your cable box picture should come up on the Main screen.

8. Press the PIP button on your VIZIO remote to bring up the small box in the corner. Press the PIP input button until you select the TV input and you should be ready to go. You may need to perform a channel scan with your TV tuner to locate all available channels before you do this step. In order to understand better how to perform a channel scan please check under the F.A.Q.s in the discussion area of your particular model television.

In order to change channels in the small screen use the PIP CH - and + buttons located near the bottom of the remote. You can swap picture in the Main and Sub screens using the swap button and swap which screen will sound off its audio by using the AUDIO button. You might notice an X next to some of the selections in the INPUT and PIP INPUT screens when you have PIP activated. That means that input selection is unavailable and cannot be used. For example, if you have the input TV selected on your main screen then if you press the PIP INPUT button and bring up that input menu you will see X's next to the TV and AV selections. The X's mean that when you have TV on the main screen you won't be able to use TV or AV on the small screen. Instead you would need to use any of the input selections that do not have an X attached to them.

My screen appears red, asking for technical support.


Hi Ernesto,

If you are getting this error it is called the no display error.

Cause:

The reason that it happens is because the GPU which deals with all of your graphics has overheated. You just need to stop the heat build up in order to make it work again.

Solution:

The first way you can fix the No Display Error is by sending it in but bear in mind for this problem there is a $150 charge for the repair which is pretty steep!

Alternative Solution That Is Faster:

If you want to get the problem fixed EVEN FASTER than the option for you is a good PS3 Repair Guide.

My ipod comes on,however,a white screen appears,instead of regular display menu


To fix the iPod Touch white screen of death the solution I've used is press in the sleep/wake button on the top left of the device, and the big circular home button on the front face on the bottom. Do this for roughly 10 or more seconds and the device should shut down/off. Give if a moment and then restart the device.

On some sites where a password or a payment amout is required,the box is too small and dashes enter instead of numbers


Are you using the numbers keypad on your keyboard, but you have not set NUM LOCK on? You get no characters or odd characters when you type this way.
Passwords usually do not display the actual characters in order to avoid prying eyes from learning what your password is. This is normal.
If you have trouble seeing very small text, and if you're using Vista, try the Accessibility Options or Ease of Access from the Control Panel. These allow you to selectively enlarge a certain area of the screen, or you may wish to change the resolution of your monitor in order to see less of a desktop, but larger text and icons. Try Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Adjust Screen Resolution.
If you would like to keep your high resolution but still have trouble reading small text, try the Control Panel->Appearance and Personalization->Personalization and change the font size from 96 to 120 DPI (dots per inch).
Good luck!

Calibrate touch screen


Actually, the red cross's movement is part of the calibration. Continue clicking each individual red cross until you get a confirmation notion notice.

In order to calibrate the touch screen, the DS needs to know where certain areas of the touch screen are relative to the actual display. Basically, you're not really controlling the display. You are interacting with a hidden interface, which is the touch screen. But in order for you to "interact" with what you are seeing, the touch screen is laid across the display.
