Wavy diag lines moving on monitor?


First, try a different monitor to eliminate that its just the monitor
If the other monitor comes on fine, that will show your monitor may need replacing.
You can also try the degauss button on your monitor screen (icon looks like a magnet)

How to change orientation of monitor


I'm a little unclear of what you are asking.

1) Screen has turned on monitor?

Press the CTRL key, and ALT key down at the same time.
Now tap on the Left Side Arrow key, until the screen is oriented correctly again.

2) Screen on monitor has shifted left, right, top, or bottom?
Use the controls on the monitor to set it correctly again.

3) Using dual monitors?
Right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on Settings.

The monitor 1 icon is supposed to be your Primary monitor.
The monitor 2 icon is the Secondary monitor.

Ordinarily the Primary monitor is on the LEFT side, and the Secondary monitor is on the RIGHT side.
Just as shown in the Settings window.

If you wish to move a monitor to the other side, go to the monitor icon you wish to move.

Put your mouse cursor on the monitor icon you wish to move.
Left-click, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now drag the monitor icon you wish to move, to the other side.

Not doing it for you?
Then post in a Comment with more exacting information, as what it is that you wish to do.

Desktop E-Machine ET1161-07. Problem I have grey rectangle in the middle of the screen . It has a volume Icon with a range of volume from 0 to 100. It is showing at 100 (or full volume). I want that...


hold down alt+f4 and select the icon for the program that is giving the volume icon, make a note of the name of the offending program, then press alt+f4 to close the program. Simply go to add/remove programs and remove the program if you want to, or look in its options to disable the volume display.

My kids have put a picture on my desktop and i don't have no icons on it I'm trying to get the icons back on my desktop


Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and right-click once. Then you should have a "Show Desktop" option or un-check the "Hide Desktop icons" Click that and all your icons should re-appear. Unless of course they actually deleted your icons :'

I want to save my resume picture as my image file..but i was not able to find ways to cut it from the document and save it in My pictures folder..


Open your resume file in whatever program you used to create it. Press Print Screen on the keyboard (usually next to F12) to take a snapshot of the whole file and save it as a .bmp or .jpg file.
Open Windows Paint. Load the picture in to it using the File menu.
Then select the dotted line box in the drawing tools. Move the mouse to top left of where you want to start cutting and press and hold the left mouse button.
Now with the button still pressed move the mouse accross and down to where you want the cutting to stop and release the button. It will put a box around the bit that you want to keep. Click on Cut (scissors) and go to the File menu and click New and then click Dont save. Then click Paste and it will paste your cut image in to the new empty file. save the new file with a different name to the original so you don't overwrite it.

I just bought an acer laptop and there is no arrow on the screen to work with the touchpad mouse. Is the copmuter faulty


Is it a guide showing You how to use the mouse (moves on its own) or does it move when You move the touchpad to where You want it to move to which is normal

If it moves on its own try closing utilities down beside clock on bottom right of the screen
