Have you tried unticking the 'align to grid'. I just had a look at my settings and this is not ticked.

Gateway dx4380g-uw308 keeps restarting?

Windows 8 has a neat utility that is called "Refresh Your PC". This process does not change any of your files (documents, pics, vids, music, etc.). If you upgraded your PC from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and your PC has a Windows 8 recovery partition, refreshing your PC will restore Windows 8. You'll need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 after the refresh has finished.

To refresh your PC

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
  2. Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.
  3. Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Try re-installing the two new sticks two or three times. Sometimes there is a little build up of oxides on the contacts on the motherboard and keeps the bios from properly recognizing them.

Is it possible to place icons (shortcuts) on the MC9090 to gain quick-access to programs? If so, how is it done?

Hope this answers your question. First go to the .EXE file you want to be on the desktop. Touch and hold to pull open the sub-menu of that app. Select "Copy". Now go to the desktop. Find an empty section. Touch and hold down to open the sub-menu. Now select "Paste Shortcut". This will put a shortcut on the desktop for you. It will show the word "Shortcut" at the beginning of the title now, which is kind of a pain. A simple "Rename" can fix that though. That should do it!

I cannot move the icons around on my desktop computer. I have 'right-clicked' and made sure that the auto arrange and lock desktop icons options are NOT checked off. I cannot open jpegs witho

If its shared, are you logging in to user account or are you the administrator for the computer? The administrator account can add / remove rights for the others but locking desktop icons I haven't seen as an option. Try doing a system restore if there is a restore point available to a date before the problem started. No data is affected just settings and drivers and such

Monitor drops into sleep at random; power light amber; hard drive light green; disc drive light comes on green

Try another monitor and see if it acts the same way. Borrow a monitor from the next door neighbor for an hour or so or from a relative and see if it behaves the same way. If not, go purchase a monitor.

I have a computer that i run dual montors on, both plug into the same video card, both monitors are crt's. my video card has 1 vga connector and 1 dvi connector. so i use a dvi to vga addaptor. now...

It is possible that you've got the resolution and vertical refresh rate set too high. CRTs tend to flicker if the vertical refresh rate is not set to about 72 to 75 Hz. If your screen resolution it set fairly high compared to what the monitor was designed to display it can overtax the video sweep circuitry in the monitor. If possible check the manufacturer's specs.

Often the video driver will let you specify different resolutions for primary and secondary monitor. If you can't find the manufacturer's specs it would be prudent to pick a less demanding resolution or vertical refresh rate for the secondary monitor.

Acer AT2001 cannot use as monitor

I currently own an Acer AT2001 21 inch Television/Monitor. The refresh rate on your computer should be set to 60Hertz. You can change this setting by right clicking the desktop, click properties, click settings, click advanced, click adapter, click list all modes, click 800by600 at 60Hertz. The screen resolution will not go above 800by600. Note; Initialize these settings with an old crt monitor and then plug in the Acer.
