Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Unusual problems with sign-in

I've Emailed Fixya about this, but not 100% convinced it's at their end.

I've never experienced problems like it. I'm running the chat utility in the bottom toolbar - and that says I'm signed in.
I can go directly to a question from Email link by clicking "here" on it.
I can do the usual hopping about - then suddenly - nada!

I can't get into the lounge - keeps sending me back to the sign in page, & says I'm logged out. I can click my products tab - and I get back in again???
Sometimes I can't see any of the premium questions - even if they're still active, or I answer a standard question - and hit post(or enter) - and I'm shown my Edit profile page - I hit enter on that, and the answer gets posted ?????

The problems start when I keep getting shown that I'm unavailable....then it all goes weird - sometimes saying server is busy.
This also sometimes screws up if my partner just logs me out to check her Emails - I can't log in again.

Seems to happen mid morning - but clears by 4pm - and again around 6 ish for a short while. - there is a definate pattern to the times.

Tried running anti V scans, Adaware, AVG,Spybot - never find anything serious.
Just wondered if it could be a cookie issue?

Your imput greatly apreciated.

also check that your security settings are at defaults and cookies same with that, well basicly get everything back to defaults.

I kept geting this wierd message that you have been logged out that someone else has logged in with my account I don't remember the message exactly but it was something to that direction.

Changed my passwords a few times and been fine.

well ive noticed that the chat availablity on the fixya page doesn't matter I can have it on unavailable but il still get chat requests since I have the desktop tool runing.

I noticed that my outlook adds :80 into the address when trying to open a link from fixya email - I had to remove that to get the links to work again.

well I don't know everything working fine here, may be something at your end.

Can't sign into pogo

While you may have your password correct, don't forget that it is case sensitive. If that's not the problem try this:

When you go to the sign-in page, there is a link on the right that says, "Forgot password or screen name". Try clicking on that.

Use the box on the left to get your password emailed to you. When you receive the email, copy and paste the password into the password box on the sign in page. That way you know you haven't mis-typed anything.

Vmware - slow network on Windows 2000

  • First of all, review which network drivers is VMware using, as there are huge differences between drivers, the worst performance-wise is PCNet32 and the best are vmxnet and enhanced vmxnet.

  • Also, check the speed of the NIC, if it is fixed or auto-negotiation mode.

What are the common problems with Apple OSX Mountain Lion?

Hello Patrick,

The most common problems I've experienced with Mountain Lion are the following:
  • Reduced battery life. I've noticed about an hour to an hour and a half cut off from my battery life of my Macbook Pro. I'm not sure if this applies to you since you have a Macbook Air, but my recommendation is to try a reinstall if you experience battery problems and turn off some of the extra features like Twitter integration and iCloud when you're not using them.
  • Safari is crashing. Safari is a browser that used to have little respect but now has actually gotten pretty decent. However, with Mountain Lion it actually crashes a lot more than usual. I don't have a fix for it offhand, but I would recommend just using Chrome (which I use anyways) or Firefox. And stay away from Explorer!
  • Free upgrades to Mountain Lion. When I got my free upgrade to Mountain Lion (if you purchased a Mac after June 11, 2012 you can get one too) it took Apple about 5 days to upgrade me to Mountain Lion. This is a super low priority problem, but it's still something I hope they're working on.
  • Notes synchronization. I have answered this on FixYa already, you can find it on the site.

Best of luck.

I lost my registration key for my drawplus x4 & i dont want to call. is there any way i can get it emailed to me?

Yes, you can send an E-MAIL to the company and ask them to e-mail you a new registration key for Drawplus X4; I'm sure they'll be happy to help you. NO ONE at FIXYA is going to help you become a software pirate. NO ONE at FIXYA is going to be stupid enough to do something illegal.

Send an E-MAIL to the company and get a LEGAL registration key; problem solved.

Hey How on FIXYA can i keep track of people i've asked for clarification on a fault there experiencing? i ask for clarification on something and i can't seem to track that person/problem down again to...

Doesn't FixYa send e-mail when there's a new comment or whatever on a topic? I has to me, at any rate...that would be in your contact settings. That's not to say I find FixYa canny at the moment, but getting less stuff than from eBay is kind of a sign of a good thing (kind of not; who knows when Goldman-Saks is going to say FixYa is worth a 6 1/6 Billion market cap 'this week'.)
