Looks like your trial ran out. You must be using Vista or installed XP on your system and never activated it. See the nearest store to buy a license. Cheers!

Keyboard\

Within the keyboard folder, you should have a string value named "InitialKeyboardIndicators" with a value of 0, 1, or 2. Below is the explanation of each of these values.

0 = Num Lock is turned OFF after the logon.
1 = Disable Num Lock.
2 = Numlock is turned ON after the logon.

How can i install windows 7 in hp dx5150 sff


There are no Windows 7 drivers for that computer model. You might want to talk to someone at HP and see if the vista drivers will work for your install first.

Have you tried changing the password?
If this still doesn't work I suggest you look into it and make sure your passwords ain't saved so someone can't log in e.g. remember me, remember password.
Hope I helped Dr Reed

Head set probs


I understand you know what you are doing, but sometimes step by step tips might help you with something you could have overlooked, so here we go;

- You have selected the proper driver for the recordings (mike input) in : Volume Settings ~ Options ~ Properties ~ selcet the right mixer

- There is no other audio program installed that overruled the standard Windows setting to use another input driver or I/Face ?

- I am not 100% sure if the 5100 has a front entry Mike input, but if so, have you checked that input, instead of the standard backside input ?

- I know that some Dells have a small applet running that automatically detects if a device is connected to the mike input or speaker output. Play a bit with these connectors in/out, speaker/mike. Maybe the applet pops up and needs to be reconfigured. I'm sorry I cannot tell you which applet it is and how to start it from Windows, maybe someone else can help with that.

- Try the straight forward program Windows recorder in Start ~ Programs ~ Accessories ~ Entertainment ~ Sound Recorder ~ Edit ~ Audio Properties and selecxt the proper Audio Interface.

Good Luck !
