How do i fid the message icon to put back on home screen ?


After unlocking your HTC One, look right above the HTC logo on the bottom center of the phone face. Right above it is a square of nine white squares. Touch that square. Now, you'll see a list of ALL applications installed. That list can be sorted in multiple ways. To sort alphabetically, touch and hold anywhere on that screen of icons and pull down a bit. A menu will appear on the screen allowing you to select to sort alphabetically.. Once that's done, look for the Messages icon. 3112a4d4-3eeb-4c5b-9d46-d1057184e632.jpg
Touch and hold the icon. At the top of the screen a new menu will appear. While still holding the icon, drag it up to the word :Shortcut". The menu will disappear and your desktop will be available to drop the icon onto. If there is room, it'll now be on your desktop (once you let go). If there isn't room, while still holding, drag it to the left or right side to change desktop pages. Locate a page that has room, and let go. The icon will then be on that page. If you have no room, then you'll have to create a new page. If you do need more pages, repost for that instruction.

Need English Manual for SANEI N78 7 inch Android 4.1 RockChip Dual-core RK3066


If you haven't resolved the language issue yet, try this:
1. power up the tablet by pressing the power button on the left side of the top edge of the tablet
2. slide the lock to bring up the home screen
3. across the top of the screen you'll see a magnifying glass (top left), a microphone, a folder with three dots on it (center) and dark area on the top right corner with six blue squares in it. Press the squares. Now you'll see your apps.
4. swipe your finger across the screen from right to left to show the next screen of apps. Look for the Settings app. It's grey with a light grey gear/sprocket in the center. Press that and you'll go into the Settings screen.
5. Down the left side you'll see a menu of options. Look for the Language and Input option. It is the one that looks like a solid light coloured square with the letter A in the center of it. Press that.
6. when that's hightlighted on the left side of the screen, you'll see the language option at the very top of the right side of the screen. There's no icon beside it, but it's the very top option. Press that.
7. the twelfth option in the list that comes up on the right side is "English (Canada)". Count down to the twelfth option and press it. The language of your table will be English. Go back and change it to something else if you don't want that particular English option.
Hope this helps. I found this youtube video that might help, too.

Skip ahead to 2:38. That's where he turns it on and then he changes the language (he could be changing it to Spanish, but you'll get the idea).

I just got this ds lite and when you touch the left side of the touch it shows you are touching the middle of the screen. This is the 2nd ds that gave me this problem.


try recalibrating your touch screen.
go to the screen with the clock and calendar.
at the very bottom of the touch screen is a DS icon, select it.
next you'll get a screen with: a wrench, clock/calendar, person,a cross hair with a small square in the middle.
select the the cross hair with a small square in the middle.
the DSLite will walk you through recalibrating your touch screen.

hope this helps :D

TRYING TO CONNECT TWO MONITORS FOR EXTENDING USE


1) You have to have a graphics card with two monitor ports.

You Cannot use one port on a graphics card, and the VGA, or DVI port on the motherboard of the computer.
BIOS will only let you use the graphics card, or the Integrated Graphics.

2) Using a 'splitter' cable results in very bad graphics on two monitors, or no graphics at all.

3) With a graphics card installed that has two monitor ports on it, connect the monitors to the graphics card.

[ The graphics card can have a VGA port, and a DVI port. Or the graphics card can have two DVI ports.

VGA = Video Graphics Array
Photo of a VGA port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

Photo of a VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vga-cable.jpg

DVI = Digital Visual Interface

Information about DVI showing a DVI cable, and connector examples for the DVI port on a graphics card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface ]


4) Turn the two monitors on once they are connected to the graphics card.
Turn on the computer.

5) Windows loaded, right-click on an empty area of the desktop screen.

6) In the list go to the bottom, and click on Properties

7) Click on the Settings tab.

8) You will see two monitor icons.
One icon has a square with a 1 in it.
The other icon has a square with a 2 in it.

The 1 monitor icon is used to represent your Primary monitor.
The one you have been using.
As you can see the 1 monitor icon is sitting to the Left.
This is how your Primary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

The 2 monitor icon is used to represent your Secondary monitor.
The one you are going to add.
As you can see the 2 monitor icon is sitting to the Right.
This is how your Secondary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

Left-click on the 2 monitor icon.
Go below in the Display Properties window, and view where it states -

Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

There is an empty square to the left of it.
Left-click in the empty square.

Now go below to the Right, and click on - Apply
Finally go below to the Left, and click on - OK

Your desktop screen will now be on your Secondary monitor.

Whatever is on your Primary monitor, has to be drug over to the Secondary monitor, when you are on the internet, or a program. (Such as a game)

Go to the blue frame on the Left side of the Windows screen.
When your cursor turns into a double-headed arrow STOP.

You'll find it's a little tricky your first time, keeping your cursor into the position where it turns into a double-headed arrow.
With the cursor in a double-headed arrow, press the left mouse button down, hold it down.
Drag the monitor screen to the Left.

Keep dragging until the window on your Primary monitor is on your Secondary monitor.
It's helpful you'll find to have two of the same size monitors.

I have found occasion where when using the internet on two monitors, that I had to Restore Down the screen, THEN drag it over to the Secondary monitor screen.

(Icons at the top right of the monitor screen.
Minimize ( - ), .......Restore Down/Maximize, ...........Red X

Then I Maximized the screen

Warning label on screen


It sounds like a 'mute' icon. Check for a corresponding button on your remote control.

Just to clarify - You say the TV sound is fine but you do not use the built-in speakers...

Can you actually get any sound out of the TV speakers? If you can't it is because the TV is on mute (For your type of setup you will need to turn it off mute and then just turn the volume all the way down.)

If you can get sound out of the built-in speakers and the icon is still showing, it is almost certainly going to be a fault with the TV. You could try unplugging it, leaving it for a minute or two and then plugging it back it. This may well reset it.

Hope this helps!

I have a problem with an Acer travelmate 530 no sound output anyone got any ideas


1. check the obvious first:(check... don't assume)
a.everything is plugged in .. if possible test the speaker to make sure they're working
b. is your volume all they way up (or at least not all the way down).
c. click once on the speaker icon on your system tray (where the clock is) make sure you're don't have the sound muted or the volume is all the way down.
d. now double click on the speaker again and check the mixer volume control.. check items like master volume, wave, audio cd and others are not muted or with the volume all they way down.

2. if after doing step 1 everything check out ok you you may have a possible driver problem: note: if you see the speaker icon with a red cross (red cross means there's no driver for your sound controller) you need to check device manager for a possible driver problem, do check even if there's no red cross on the speaker icon as it may be a possible outdate driver (for device manager go to start>run> type devmgmt.msc then enter) and check if you have any ! or ? under sound devices. if you do unstill and reinstall drivers or better yet, download updated drivers from sound card manufacturer.

3. if you got upto step 3.. you may have a faulty sound card, get another sound card and test if it works. (this is unlikely but possible)
