Your font is green only on msn. Go into msn log on and you have to go in to options and change the font color. It was probably a short cut key stroke you hit. If not you browsers is the problem

How can i reset the password on a emac i dont have the emac keyboard i got a logitech keyboard


  1. Reboot the machine into single user mode (CMD+S on boot)
  2. Mount the root file system as read/write (mount -uw /)
  3. Edit the SUDOERS file (visudo)
  4. Change all occurences of "(ALL) ALL" to "NOPASSWD: ALL" (Note: You'll need to know your way around the text editor vi -- check out the vi tutorial in MacOS X Command Line 101 for more. -TMO)
  5. Save the SUDOERS file and reboot (ESC-w, ESC-q, 'reboot')
  6. Open a terminal and execute the command 'sudo passwd root'
Voila! I was able to change the root password without being prompted for any other password. This done, I could authenticate as root and do anything I wanted on the box.
So there's one method, but we discovered this only works if you have an account that automatically logs itself in when you boot the Mac. We're not all so lucky. What to do? We'll one-up this method with a way that works for any user account.
  1. First, you'll need to reboot into single-user mode. This boots your Mac into a text-only mode (you might be familiar with this experience if you've ever had to run fsck). You'll see instructions on how to run the file system check -- fsck -- and then a command prompt. Enter the command mount -uw / so that we can make changes to the disk.
  2. Next, you need to be able to make changes to the users' accounts on your Mac in order to reset your password, and we'll do that with NetInfo. Start NetInfo by typing Systemstarter. You'll see a pile of messages appearing, which might seem familiar to you if you've ever watched the startup progress bar. When you see the message System started. and a stationary cursor, hit Return. You'll see the shell prompt appear again.
  3. Now that NetInfo is running, we can change our lost password. If you don't know the short username for your account (for example, 'jane' instead of 'Jane Doe'), you'll need that - enter the command niutil -list . /users and hit Return, to see the names of the accounts on your Mac.
  4. Now that you know the name of the account you want to use, enter the command passwd user -- where user is the short name of the account you're changing. You'll be told that you're changing the password for user and asked to enter it twice. Do this, being careful with your typing: you won't see the characters you're typing, or stars. Watch that Caps Lock key, while you're at it.
  5. Now type reboot and press Return once more to reboot your Mac. You should now have no problem logging in.

When I start typing sometimes the word appear back tnorf ot (to front) why is that? Always af a retfew words..


The Cyrillic millions character can make the text following it go backwards. This is a problem in Windows 64-bit. You might also be accidentally reversing the horizontal dimension of the monitor. But that is usually obvious, as the mouse goes in the opposite direction.

Try to boot up ,get error 107


Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

I am trying to set up a password for my belkin router when I go wireless


its the wireless that you need to secure. Open a browser and go to the router's IP (e.g. 192.168.1.1) If you dont know the IP, go to Start> Run . type"CMD" hit enter > type "ipconfig" hit enter, the router's IP will be Default Gateway: 192.168.X.X.

click on security in left column,
default login is blank, just hit submit

security mode= wpa-wsp (no server)
authentication= wpa-wsp wpa2-psk
encryption= tkip+aes
pre shared key = (create password)
click apply changes.
(only those who know key can use network)
