My screen shows multi colors unless I physically hold the screen up in one place near the frame. I have to do a fair amount of adjusting to get it to stay so that I can see whats on the screen. I have a Toshiba Satellite M45 S169.

This is usually to to the graphics chip not being properly soldered to the circuit board - the chip is probably what is known as a ball-grid array and these are notorious for this problem.
If this is the case then you really cannot fix it and it will need a new mainboard.
If it is a loose connection to the screen then you may have a dodgy graphics cable which leads from the mainboard to the TFT display panel. Sometimes it may be that the connector on the mainboard is loose. If this is the case then it may be worth trying to take it apart (if out of warranty) and check that the multi-wire plug leading to the screen is firmly seated into the connector.
However, taking apart a notebook is quite tricky!

How I can refill my HP 27 Cartridge at home...


Hi,

please follow the instructions........

  • 1

    Purchase an ink refill kit that is specific for the HP 27 color ink cartridge. Look over the packaging to insure that it states that the kit is for the particular make and model. Using other types of cartridges may not work properly.

  • 2

    Place several paper towels down to prevent any ink residue from damaging other objects. Place the ink cartridge onto the paper towels. Put on a pair of rubber gloves to prevent ink from staining hands.

  • 3

    Peel off the top label gently from the cartridge.

  • 4

    Observe the three holes that are located on top of the cartridge. There is a solo hole located near a rectangular tab that protrudes and two other holes located next two rectangular indentations into the plastic on the top of the cartridge.

  • 5

    Take a toothpick and gently stick it down inside each hole to verify the color. Take a sharpie marker and mark next to each hole with the correct coloring for ease. Use "M" for the magenta color, "Y" for yellow and "B" for blue.

  • 6

    Take a piece of masking tape and place over two of the holes to prevent ink spillage from mixing into other color positions.

  • 7

    Read over the ink cartridge refill kit for the appropriate amount of ink needed to fill the syringe with the correct color for the uncovered hole.

  • 8

    Expel any excessive ink from the syringe. Insure that you have the correct amount of ink by following the markers on the side of the syringe.

  • 9

    Place a paper towel over the end of the syringe and while holding the tip upwards, gently press or tap the syringe plunger to expel any air.

  • 10

    Insert the syringe needle into the appropriate color hole until the tip hits the bottom of the cartridge. Pull the syringe up a little from the bottom of the cartridge to prevent blockage when expelling ink.

  • 11

    Expel the ink into the color hole slowly. Stop if ink begins to protrude out of the color hole. Take a cotton swab and gently wipe the outside of the color hole and then cover with tape.

  • 12

    Take the syringe apart and rinse thoroughly to prevent ink colors from blending. Take a cotton swab and dry out the inside of the syringe.

  • 13

    Repeat above steps for the remaining two color positions that are left.

  • 14

    Gently take a needle and put a hole in each tape that covers the color holes for ventilation. Allow the cartridge to sit for at least one hour after completing refill instructions.

  • 15

    Reattach the original top label.

    My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped


    Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

    Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.

    Physical memory dump


    Hmm... Well a Bluescreen is when your computer crashes, and (as you have found out) preforms a physical memory dump. This can be caused by multiple things. Such as bad drivers, PFN(page frame number) or problems with your memory. When a bluescreen event occurs, the is a technical information which has an error code that can be used to help find the problem. In order to fix this problem, you may have to remove any software, or hardware that you have recently installed. To uninstall software, you may need to boot in safe mode, which is where your computer starts up using the minimal amount of drivers needed, in order to try to prevent the computer from crashing.

    Few questions about RAM memory?


    Solution:



    i)  LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatiility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets.
        HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility

        here compatablity means LOW DENSITY RAM are accepted by all system(100%)  or any make           system.. HIGH DENSITY RAM are accepted by 10% by only some system or computers...


    ii) in order to check system performance or amount of Computer RAM usage press the ctrl+alt+del
       simultaneously a new window(window task manager) will appear showing:

        CPU usage: showing the amount of CPU or processor utilized at that particular time.
        PF usage: showing the amount of RAM memory utilized at that particular time.
        Physical Memory: showing Total RAM Memory, Available Ram memory....

    iii) baiscally they are two types of RAM they are:

        DDR1:which is older one supported by older system  or older mother boards which is costlier
        DDR2: which is latest one supported by all new system or new mother boards which is less                         costlier

        DDR: double data rated ram......which will send data at a double rate compared to SD RAM

    iii) here color doesnt matter, these slots either support DDR1 or DDR2 but not both at a time
        
        DDR1 has 184 pins or gold plated pinssss... on the edge of the RAM
        DDR2 has 240 pins 

        so difference doesnot allow DDR2 to placed in DDR1 motherboards or vice versa...

    iv) it does have anything to do with no of chips on the RAM but they only differ whether it is DDR1 OR DDR 2(DDR2 are much faster than DDR1)

    NOTE: whatever may the the RAM, each RAM has FSB(called Frequency...) which determines the frequency of rate at which data is tranferred from RAM to processor(CPU)  usually in MHZ such as FSB 300, 400, 200 , 333...................

    more the FSB the faster data is transferred to the processor(CPU)

    dont worry even RAM with less FSB's work well with the processor....having 1 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM is engouh, it only matters with the speed of CPU ... but not RAM......

    How many photos can be stored on a digital photo frame?


    Hi,
    I generally depends upon the size of the picture that you are storing and the memory card that in the digital frame.
    eg 128 MB photo frame ,would store close to 10 pictures at 8 megapixel resolution
