Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I start typing a message in Outlook Express, the screen disappears after entering about four characters. Then I have to do Alt+Tab a couple of times to bring it back. Then I can go on typing. Similarly when typing in Word, the screen won't disappear, but it just stops registering my keyboard entries, and I have to use the mouse to click on the page to bring it back. I'm working in Windows 7 with a Toshiba Satellite A505.

Your problem is most likely either a problem with viruses/malware or your graphics driver. Start out scanning with these two good, free programs:
http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/
http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Malwarebytes-AntiMalware/1186760019/1
Make sure to uninstall any anti-virus software you currently have before installing security essentials. If a full scan with both and reboot doesn't fix the problem then try downloading your graphics driver.
It can be found here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp
You didn't specify your exact laptop model, it goes further than a505. Navigate toshiba's menus until you select the exact model number for your laptop. You should see the display drivers then.
Good luck.

Hi All, Can anyone please tell me how to stop Outlook Express from popping up wanting to free up disk space by compressing it EVEN when its not installed. I've had it on numerous computers and it


When messages are deleted in Outlook Express, they are not actually removed from the database containing your email data. Rather, the messages are marked to let Outlook Express know that they can be removed the next time the database is compacted. Compacting the message store is necessary for Outlook Express to maintain a reasonable database and avoid file corruption. Because it is necessary, Outlook Express offers to compact your message store every 100 times the program is used. If you do not compact your message store, the message will continue appearing. Compact the Outlook Express message store manually to remove the message asking if you would like your message store compacted automatically.
Compact the Outlook Express Message Store Manually Launch Outlook Express. Click "File," then click "Work Offline." This disconnects Outlook Express from the Internet temporarily, ensuring that the message store is not in use while you are compacting the database. Note: If you do not want to compact the Outlook Express message store at all, see Section 2. Click "Tools" and then "Options." Click the "Maintenance" tab. Click the "Clean Up Now" button. Click the "Compact" button. This process may take some time depending on when the message store was last compacted. Click "Close" or "OK" to close each window. The offer to compact the Outlook Express message store automatically will no longer be displayed. Click "File" and "Work Offline" to reconnect Outlook Express to the Internet. Compact the message store periodically to prevent the message from being displayed again. Remove the Offer to Compact the Message Store Without Compacting section 2 Press the Windows logo and "R" keys to display the "Run" dialog box. Type "regedit" without quotation marks into the box and press "Enter." This opens the Windows registry editor. Click the plus icons on the left side of the folder tree to navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER," "Identities," "(long string of letters and numbers)," "Software," "Microsoft" and "Outlook Express" folders. Click the "5.0" folder under the "Outlook Express" folder. Find the value named "Compact Check Count" on the right side of the window and double click it. Change the number displayed under "Value data" to "0" and click "OK." Close the registry editor. Outlook Express will not offer to compact your message store again until it has been launched another 100 times. Hope this helps

I am unable to set up my incoming and outgoing mail on outlook express so that I don't get errors. I am trying to sync my outlook with my palm treo and my ipod touch. I am receiving my emails on my touch,...


You need to set up Outlook Express with the correct names of the servers for your particular email account. One server name for outgoing mail, and one for incoming. The following link lists all the majors web mail services and their server settings.

http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/mail-settings.html

In Outlook Express, from the Tools menu, choose Accounts.
On the Mail tab, choose Add --> Mail..
Type a display name for your account. Hit Next.
Type your email address. Hit Next.
Using the above link, enter the required information for incoming and outgoing mail servers. Hit Next.
Enter the username and password for the account and click Finish.
(These windows may vary slightly depending on the type of account.)

Hope this was helpful. You'll want to tell Outlook whether or not to leave the email on the server or not (for you to access from the web at a different location perhaps).

Not as familiar with Treo setup, but there is most likely a settings screen to enter the same info as above.

Best of luck!

Outlook express is trying to send a message with a lot of photos attached. It is unable to do this. How can I delete this message.


Hi,
If your Email is trying to send as soon as you start Outlook Express, you might try this:
Open Outlook Express and go to the top menu, click TOOLS then under that menu, OPTIONS. Under the GENERAL tab, uncheck the box for "Send and receive messages at startup", then click OK.
Close Outlook Express and start it up again. Hopefully this will allow you to delete the Email. Good luck!
