If you run the mouse up the side does a little arrow appear? If it does you can pull on that arrow, using the mouse and recenter your display. Try this first and if it doesnt work, get back to me.

    Which op system do you have? You could take a look in the control panel at display and see if there is anything there that will help you or you can dig out your monitor CD and reinstall your monitor. I've never come across this one, but there are a lot of new and large monitors out there now. You can also right click on your desktop and go through the options there. Your children may have accidentally done just this and changed a setting.

    Good Luck.

Machine shows E 61 when switch on.

E61 I think this a door lock error code. When you close, the door it activates a switch which will allow the machine to start a wash programme. Conversely the first thing the selected programme does is activate a solenoid, to stop you opening the door before the machine is ready. Think spinning drums, small children and cats, or flooded floors. I digress, if that little switch stops working or the mechanism has moved slightly and isn't activated, the machine assumes the door is open.
Maybe not a great help but we have narrowed things down.

My screen turned upside down, how do I turn it back/

Go into the display properties (right click desktop, properties, settings, advanced) and on screen rotation set it back to 0. Someone decided to play a slight prank on you (my coworkers like to do that to systems that were left unattended for a moment to mess with each other)

I need to replace the lid switch in my gateway 7510 GX or else simply disable it. I removed the button that gets pressed but seems the circuit is already messed up, and I need to mess with it every time I...

Try this, go to Control Panel, open "Power Options" and on the left pane, click "when I close the lid...." or similar options for Lid and and choose "Do nothing" on both the options available on "Close Lid" menu. Save the settings and try whether this helps or not.
(you can go to the power options by right-clicking the desktop, select "Properties" then to "Screen Save" [XP] or to "Power" tab.)
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I was attempting to put the temperature dial to the very warmest setting possible. I turned the dial to off and attempted to move it ever so slightly to stop the moment it kicked on. I heard some arching...

If the arching came from the thermostat area it is possible to unplug and just replace the thermostat. Thermostats are easy to go out. If it's just a typical thermostat unplug the refrigerator and reinstall a new one. Now if it's digital you may have a problem there. Most common thermostats are two wire like an on off switch, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Things You’ll Need:

* Television screen cleaning products
* Cleaning schedule
* Microfiber cleaning cloth

Clean Your HDTV Screen Properly
Read the warning labels on all your household cleaning products. Even glass cleaners might not be suitable for use on an HDTV screen, so check the manufacturer's warnings before you apply anything to the screen.
Keep chemical cleaners away from your HDTV on cleaning day. The harsh chemicals found in most common cleaning products will actually cause more harm than good.
Leave liquid cleaners under your sink when cleaning your HDTV screen. A liquid cleaner, whether it be water or a chemical cleaner, will drip down the screen and work its way into the interior of the TV, causing damage to your HDTV. You will be able to easily recognize when this happens, because your screen will develop smudges.
Use a cloth to clean the HDTV screen. Ideally, you should use a cloth that is recommended for HDTV screens, computer screens and other electronics. The word "microfiber" may be imprinted on the packaging.
Wet the microfiber cloth slightly. Just a hint of dampness is all you need. If water runs out of the cloth, then it's too wet and will cause smudges.
Develop a regular cleaning schedule for your HDTV screen. If you dust the screen daily, or at least several times a week, with your microfiber cloth, no other maintenance should be necessary. Not only will frequent cleanings make caring for your HDTV easier, but they will also enhance your viewing experience.
Prevent messes by asking family members and guests not to touch the television screen. You should also try to make sure children with sticky fingers do not come in contact with the screen.
Use a high-end cleaning product if you feel that regular dusting is not sufficient. Top-of-the-line television cleaning products are ideal for use on all HDTV screens, plasma screens, projectors and are safe to use around children and animals.
