To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region. You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made. NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change. If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk. The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: - www.dvdfab.com/products,free.htm

Can I upgrade to windows

Download and install the Windows7 Upgrade Advisor software using the following link. It will tell you what upgrades you may need.
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor

NOTE: [These are my recommendations only] You should have a Video Card with at least 256 MB Ram to take advantage of AeroDesktop. You should have a minimum of 2 GB of System Memory.
I have a laptop with 1 GB System Ram and only 128 MB Video and Win7 works well.

Why am I being asked to sign in to my Google toolbar account every day>?

Maybe you access your acc on another machine, that why is ask for. So try this: You may not want to sign out each time when using your own PC, but it is particularly important to sign out if you are accessing your account on a shared computer or public network. However, if you forget to log out, you can log out of all previous sessions the next time you are at a computer. To do this, open your Gmail or Google Apps account and click on the Details link in the bottom right of your screen. This will open up a pop up window where you can see recent activity, whether your Gmail or Google Apps account is open in any other location, and choose to Sign out of all other sessions. Clicking that button will ensure all your previous Gmail and Google Apps sessions are logged out, leaving you logged in to the current computer only.

I installed PS 6351-2 power supply and now on startup, it is not getting BLUE light until you press the button a number of times, what can I do?

Hard to tell without actually testing the circuitry, I would place my bets on the button switch being intermittent. See if pressing it harder makes it work the first time.

Can the power button on

No, it's a sealed part that cannot be opened. But you can replace it with another one that you can get from another pc - just takeout the front cover of the case and the button will be there. Pop it out, disconnect it from the motherboard (make a drawing to where it was plugged) and get a new one, it will cost you $10 at a repair shop.

Mosaic type screen during startup

First sounds like a bad video card. Could be bad screen or connection. Hard drive sounds like it is dead. Check you screens connection if the cord is replaceable then replace it. Pins may be bent or broken if it is the d-sub hook up if usb hdmi then may need to replace the full monitor.

Password reset on dell 518

Reset Your Windows Password Using the Command Prompt

1. Boot your computer using your Windows installation disc. 2. Wait for the setup files to load, and select your language. Click Next. 3. Click the Repair your computer link on the Install Windows screen. 4. Select the operating system to repair, and note the drive letter on which the OS is installed (it is probably C: or D:). Click Next. 5. Click Command Prompt at the bottom of the list of recovery tools. Now you need to overwrite the Sticky Keys executable with the Command Prompt executable. Sticky Keys is an accessibility feature that allows a user to tap the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or Windows key once to achieve the same effect as holding the key down. Ordinarily, tapping Shift five times activates Sticky Keys--but with this trick, you are going to make tapping Shift five times activate the Windows Command Prompt instead. The instructions below use drive letter C: as an example. If your operating system is installed on another drive, replace C: with the appropriate drive letter. 1. In the Command Prompt window, type copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\ and press Enter. 2. Type copy /y c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter. 3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. At the login screen, tap Shift five times. The Command Prompt will pop up. 4. Type net user username password, replacing username with your username and password with a new password. 5. Exit the Command Prompt, and log in using your new password. To prevent another user from exploiting the same trick to reset your password, you can restore Sticky Keys as follows: 1. Step through the instructions above to boot the PC using your Windows installation disc, open the recovery tools, and launch the Command Prompt. 2. Type copy /y c:\sethc.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe and press Enter. 3. Exit the Command Prompt and reboot the computer. Pressing Shift five times will now activate Sticky Keys instead of the Command Prompt. Store your Windows installation disc in a secure location.
