Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Hi, I am a Messenger user with L plates from downunder! What I would like to know is how I can get Messenger to sit in my system tray when I start up my laptop, so that I can then simply log in and be "live". Instead, I keep having to go to Start, Windows Live, etc etc and then select Messenger. The Messenger icon then sits in the system tray, but only until I shut down. Second part of my question - I have two user friends and would like to have three-way discussion - how do I get them both on line at the same time - assuming they are both online at the time, of course :-) Many thanks for your help!

Open up windows live, then at the top panel click tools, then options, then click general on left side, next click the top box, then apply, the programme will now start with windows startup.

Youe 2nd question, when in a conversation with a contact, you can invite other contacts into your conversation by going up to the Actions menu and selecting "Invite a contact to join this conversation."

I am having problems with bt yahoo messenger.i think the problem started when i installed one of the add ons so i could play bingo on facebook. now when i start laptop yahoo messenger doesnot show icon in...

The problem is that the yahoo messenger is not started at startup. You can do the following.

1. Open yahoo messenger from start-> all programs -> yahoo messenger.
2. In the sign In page (initial page) check both the boxes "remember my id & password" and "Sign in automatically"
3. Type in user id and password and login
4. From "messenger" menu item click "preferences". A dialog box will popup. Click "general" in the left hand side. In the right hand side there will be a check box "Automatically start yahoo messenger" under "when I start up my computer".
5. Click ok.

This will solve the problem.

The bottom tray in my Kodak esp7 is stuck in the open position and will not shut

I'm assuming you are talking about the paper tray. Paper trays usually have a metal lift plate in them. The plate is spring loaded. When the tray opens, the spring is actuated and it lifts the paper upward. When the drawer is pushed back in, there is a guide inside the printer that pushes the plate down. Sometimes that plate doesn't hit the guide correctly. Look at where the tray is sitting inside the guide while it's going into place. You should see where the plate should be. There will likely be a path on either side of the printer on the inside that guides the plate downward. Try to push it back into place or take the tray out and guide it back by hand. You'll see that there might be something blocking it as it goes in. Sometimes when you guide it in manually, the tray will correct itself.

I am trying to find out how to use IM and if there is acost

There are two Instant Messaging services that I know of that are free. One is Yahoo messenger and the other is MSN messenger also known as windows messenger. Please let me know what one you want to use and I can get you directions. Or you can Google one of those and download the program and then let me know what your user name is. This is usually your email address. I can add you to my user list on the messenger service and help you that way.

Xerox 6100 laser - paper jams if paper tray low on paper

There could be two things. First, be sure the paper tray is not binding. The metal plate in the middle should spring up easily. The friction pad should be firmly attached to the tray, but not extending over the metal portion. The second thing would be to clean or replace the feed rollers. They are inside the machine above where the tray would sit. Since the tray feeds when full, I don't think you have a clutch problem. Let me know how it goes.
