Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I'm not sure how -- but while messing around with my computer (trying to burn a CD) (which I also couldn't do), my display flipped 90 degrees so I'm looking at everthing sideways and I can'get it back straight. Any thoughts on either of these two problems? Thank you very much. Dave

To burn a cd using XP just right click on the files you want and send to CD Burner, DVD, or whatever it says that deals with your burner and when you get what you want in your temporary drive right click on the icon on your start bar that popped up and said "you have files waiting to be written" and click write these files. If they are audio files it will ask you if you want a data disc or audio disc. Pick the appropriate one. If there was no icon..right click on My Computer and click explore. Righ click on your burner and click write these files.

I use Nero! Love it!

As far as your vertical screen. You can switch it back with the options on your monitors buttons or righ click on your desktop and choose properties and thumb around there to find your driver specific properties to rotate your screen.

EnVivo Cassette Converter CD software manual disc is too small to fit into hard drive of my computer. I have a desk top computer


do you mean the CD is only 8 cm and not 12 cm? and you can't put it in your CD player on the desktop computer?
Perhaps you should try to goto the EnVivo support site and download the manual and software there>
Or perhaps you could turn the desktop computer 90 degrees for one time, so the disk can lay on the try and can be used still?

Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

You know how you can burn a cd on your computer well my competer just leaves the cd blank what do i do?


I assume you have a CD/DVD writer or a combo. Check if it is recognized and its full name displayed in My Computer.

Next try using a new blank CD and burn using a program like Nero.

You need only the trial version to test your writer. Alternatively, search on Google for free CD burning software. Let me know how it goes.

My pc doesnt detect my dvd /cd


Open your control panel, click on the system icon and see what it indicates about your cd/dvd drive, is it listed?
Try re-installing your drivers. If you are one to mess around with the inside of your computer, make sure the drive cables are properly seated as well as the power supply connector. Check for power at the power supply connector as well.

The display on my new Acer Aspire One is upside down


Hi SSandee -

There are some hot key combinations that I think will help you out. Here they are:

Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up

Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees

Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn't work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

Hope that helps,

Take Care,

Michael

Hi : I have a HP Pavillion a1218n (P4) computer that is about three years old. I would like to burn data to 8.5 GB Dual Layer - Single sided DVD storage media disks. My CD/DVD burner : burns, flip, burn...


Greetings,
Your dvd drive is not capable of burning a dual layer disc. You need to have a burner that is capable of sending the laser through to the second layer of the disc. That said you can get a DL burner for around 30 dollars. Click HERE to see one from Newegg.com.
I am not sure what you mean by 'burns, flip, burn dvds.' but if you make another comment I will respond.
Take Care,
-WN
