Generally an indication of a failing video card. Try updating the BIOS and the video driver, if not effect, replace the video card. In some instances, I've seen where both the motherboard and video card had to be replaced to avoid cascade failure (On part damaging the other)

What does f1to12 do


the "f" keys are called "Function Keys" some have "universal" functions - F3 will bring up a "find text" function in most programs and "F5" will refresh the screen/web page etc. The other "F" keys get functions assigned by the program you are using at the time. You can also assign an un-used "F-key" to a deskop shortcut by right-clicking the icon, selecting "Properties" then click in the text box next to "Short cut key" then - Press the F-key you want to use as a shortcut for that Icon. (F number should appear in the text box). Click "save" or "OK" and close the Property box. Now press the F-Key you programmed into the Icon - it should execute whatever the Icon is for.. And that is was the F-keys do.

Hi When I write text in messenger, I press enter but my text does not appear in the chat box Any clues? Thanks Michael


Hello,

This is all I can think of. Is there any chance that your text color is set to white?

The way to check the text color setting is to click on the text icon (a capital T with a box around it). And then click on the little color palette icon and check to see what color is selected.

Also changes in settings some times require you to close and open a window to take effect.

Restart the program to see if that helps.

There are several possibilities...
1.The Type setting is wrong for the type of paper or specialty media you are using. Change Paper Type to match the paper or specialty media you are using.

Vertical Light Streaks on text documents, both single and duplex


Clean the glass thoroughly using Isopropyl alcohol. Dont use solvents. Check if there is any scratch on the glass. Repeated scanning with stapler pins can scratch the glass. If it is scratched, you may need to chage it.
