Acer :: Number Lock Should Active On Boot Up?


Acer 17" notebook Aspire 9425WSMi. Vista Home Prem SP1.

How do I get this PC to always start up with the Number Lock on/active? Given that the PC has a full size keyboard, it is a nuisance to always have to manually activate.

There does not appear to be any option in the BIOS settings that I have been able to access at startup.

Acer :: Caps Lock , Num Lock Osd What Software
what application gives the osd for the caps lock/num lock that normally shows at the bottom right of the screen, I have volume osd so it must be separate to that.

I wiped and re-installed my os yesterday.

The 5810T does not have an led for caps lock or num lock so the osd indicator is invaluable.

Dell :: Flashing Lock Keys On Boot Up
if i turn the pc off, when i turn back on, no boot up, no chance to press f2 f12 f8 nothing. the only thing that happens is the disk read light stays on, and the caps lock and looks like system lock lights keep flashing. the system will then eventually power off. i removed the battery (the laptop was always plugged into power) and it started. i then placed the battery back and it started normally.

Apple :: How To Move The Active App On The Screen With Shortcuts
How do I move the active app on the screen with some keyboard shortcuts?

I really need some application that will move my windows where I want right away, resizing them at the same time.

My specific scenario is: I use an external 27" LCD with the MBP; I keep connecting and disconnecting the laptop over a day at work several time.

The problem is: I set up a window to be "that big" and to be on "that" part of the display, I set up other windows next to the first one (usually all documents, need to compare them side by side) and it looks and works fine on the big screen, but when I disconnect they are not keeping the side-by-side position (smaller of course, to fit on the 15" MBP display).

My wish: to press something like Ctrl+1 to move the active window to position 1,1 on the screen, with the windows size of 960 & 600; Ctrl+2 to move the active window to position 961, 1, with the size of 960x600. This way I would get the 2 windows side by side really easy.

I found several apps doing this(and much more) for Finder, but nothing for any window of any application that runs on Mac ...

I have no idea how hard is to code this on a Mac, fairly new with Macs; but I am ready to purchase a small utility that will accomplish those tasks ..

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6500t Running Windows 7 RC With 2 Active Users
I'm getting a strange problem on my dv6500t with my dual booted Windows 7 RC install (same issue with the Beta). My searches have been inconclusive.

Using W7 as one user is fine, but if I leave one user logged in and switch user accounts, things start acting wierd...Anti-virus fails to start (I've uninstalled AV and the rest still occur)Can't use the IE button on the task barIE doesn't log in to some websites (e.g. AOL mail)slowness Lots of permanent window and menu artifact ghosting that only clears after logging out This only happens when 2 users are logged in at one time... one user works just dandy.

I'm just suspicious of my HP... the friggen thing crashes on me enough or doesn't resume from hibernate/sleep so I'm not confident in the crap.

Acer :: (lock Up) Ferrari 4005
I've seen this somewhere, on a board (I think), but whenever I press firmly to the right of the touchpad, about an inch, the computer will freeze up every time. Sometimes typing, like right now, will do it. Any ideas? Acer Tech said they're never heard of it.

Acer :: Aspire 5739G Win7 Desktop Lock Up
I have a big issue with my Acer Aspire 5739G laptop that I recently purchased through Ebay. Actually, I bought it from Newegg dba Fred's Fresh Deals. (Newegg sells their returned items and cosmetically damaged goods under this name on Ebay). The laptop was advertised as a possible hard drive issue (it couldn't load windows and the error code looked like a boot sector virus, so I purchased it thinking a simple reformat will fix it).

Specs:

CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2G
Screen 15.6"
Memory Size 4GB DDR3
7200RPM Hard Disk 320GB
Optical Drive DVD Super Multi
Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M
Video Memory 1GB
Communication Modem, Gigabit LAN and WLAN
CPU Type Intel Core 2 Duo
CPU Speed T6600(2.20GHz)
CPU FSB 800MHz
CPU L2 Cache 2MB
Chipset
Chipset Intel PM45
Display
Screen Size 15.6"
Wide Screen Support Yes
Resolution 1366 x 768
LCD Features LED backlight & Acer CineCrystal Technology
Operating Systems
Operating System Windows 7

Anyways...

After I did a fresh reformat of the hard drive and a fresh install of Windows 7, the laptop freezes/locks up after 10-30mins on the desktop. I cannot move the mouse or anything, so I have to do a hard reboot. I don't understand how it is happening.

I updated the mobo's Phoenix driver to the latest one, and tried older VGA Nvidia drivers because I thought it might be a video card driver issue; It is still locking up. I went as far as to purchase a brand new laptop hard drive and the problem still arises. There is no BSOD. As noted earlier, the computer just simply freezes. I cleared CMOS....240M GT VGA is running factory settings....I tried leaving only 1 ram stick in the laptop. I never ran through a problem like this before.

I ran it on Safe Mode and the computer seems to be working fine as long as I do simple tasks or remain idle. I did the SFC /SCANNOW in safe mode and it locks up. I attached my event view file to this email. (I tried to install RivaTuner to underclock factory settings, but the program could not load).

Acer :: 8930G - Begun To Lock Up And Freeze Requiring Me To Shut It Off
My laptop unfortunately had begun to lock up and freeze requiring me to shut it off.

They claimed it was not under warrantly despite me including in the packaging a copy of the receipt and also emailing them a further copy.

It came back last Friday supposedly "tested". However the centre speaker no longer works and the 2 front speakers sound quality is not what it should be or has been. When I play a DVD or BD there is no voice at all. And when I check the configuration of the speakers there is no sound coming from the centre speaker despite it being on maximum.

I've tried doing another factory restore, removing the old nvidia and realtek hd audio drivers, still no sound from the centre speaker and reduced quality from the 2 front speakers so I've had to raise another call.

If it does not come back 100% tested I am going to press for a replacement/refund.

Acer :: (6935G) Boot Problem After Restart (cant Access Bios / Boot From Disk Etc)
I got this laptop a few days ago, I currently have 7 and XP installed on it and kind of have vista...(read further down).

My 7 seemed to break today after playing around with a program called powerstrip trying to get my external monitor to show the right resolution (I've realised now the cable vga was broke, but meh) but this is not the full problem, after windows 7 failed to boot I tried to boot xp after turning it off during the windows 7 splash screen and now im stuck with a dash when I turn the laptop on (I dont know if its actully related to something I've done or not).

If I turn the laptop on a flashing dash comes on in the top right, it then stops flashing and turns into a none flashing dash further up the screen and just locks here and I cant do anything at all other than trying to restart it. When I had this problem previously (at least I think this problem) on my desktop it usualy turned out to be something usb related but I have everything unplugged (all though the bluetooth adapter light is on when it is doing this) so I realy dont know what to do...............

Dell :: M4400 Lock Up When Redocking To E-Port Plus Replicator
At work I use M4400 that is docked to E-Port Plus replicator. If I start the laptop while docked, everything works great.

When I undock the laptop (while still running) everything is still fine. Although sometimes the laptop lid need to be opened and closed twice for the display output to show up on the laptop screen.

The real problem occurs when I redock the laptop (while still running) to the E-Port Plus replicator. Most of the time, the display output does not transfer to my external monitor (22" Dell monitor). The laptop appears to be locked up, and I need to reboot the computer

Dell :: How To Reduce Number Of Processes At Start Up
I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 and stops responding during use, it does not freeze up totally, just the programs being used stop responding.

Sometimes they will start back on their own after waiting a few minutes and other times I have to reboot. I have 61 processes showing with no programs opened. I have been told this is my problem.

It also is slow to recognize a DVD inserted in the DVD drive as well as a USB memory stick. How can I make sure my laptop is running and working properly with as few processes running as needed? I have downloaded and ran every program I can find in relationship to this problem and everything checks out OK on computer.

It also shows letters slowly as you type. This is not happening everytime but maybe 70% of the time i use a program involving typing.

Apple :: Macbook - Recognizing Part Number
My fan recently died in my macbook (early 2008, probably a penryn right?) and i decided to replace it myself.

I ordered a fan that was stated it would fit all macbook's except the macbook with unibody.

It was shipped from the US and i live in Sweden so it took a while. I recieved it today and lo and behold, it does not fit.

I've opened up a dispute with the seller but i need to fix my laptop asap so i need to get another fan somewhere.

I will probably be buying from ebay since it's cheaper, but this time i want to be certain i get the right part.

I wanted to ask if i can identify what fan i want and don't just go by the description of the item (since that fooled me once)?............

Dell :: Best Cable Lock For Latitude E6500/E6400 Series

Dell :: E1505 New Motherboard, Standby And Lock Computer Don't Work
I just had a new motherboard installed in my E1505 under warranty by a Dell Tech. They sent a new hard drive with it, with Windows XP already installed. I also still have my original hard drive. After the motherboard finished installing, my Standby no longer works...

actually it goes into Standby, but immediately wakes up, without me touching a single thing. Also, I can't lock my computer by pushing the Windows logo + L. Using that shortcut actually logs me off the user. I tried this with both the new hard drive and the old original one. Both of these things worked fine with my old motherboard.

I did a clean install of XP on the new hard drive, and still it doesn't work. So far the Dell tech that I've been talking with online and on the phone doesn't have the answer. I've been talking to him for several days now

Sony :: Caps Lock Light Doesn't Work Anymore
my CS.

sony tech did a repair on my laptop and when he was done, a piece of the trim wasn't flush near the LCD hinge. To fix this, I put a drop of krazy glue under the hinge (it snaps off) on the panel above the keyboard and was able to fix the problem cleanly.

The problem is, I noticed my caps lock light no longer turns on. I have no clue when this could have happened, since it was under a couple repairs before. But, my worry is my warranty. Do you think they'll complain about replacing it if they see I had to glue a piece together? On the other hand, the light module screws into this panel so, technically they don't need to replace this panel, just the light module.

Sony :: WIFI BIOS Lock By ? 3945/4965/5300 Not Working
last week i tried to upgrade my wifi to 5300 from 3945 but when inserted it showed up but it said no connection availalbe with an X through the signal bars
so i just changed it back to 3945.

Today i tried to upgrade to a 4965 and for some reason the same problem occured. I thought the 5300 might of been BIOS LOCKED or something as that was suggested to me by another member on the forum but i found it odd that both cards were somehow blocked in a way, but they were still attached to the laptop and showing up as working in the device manager. nowa after giving up on installing the 4965 I reinserted my 3945 and now its showing up as no connections available . are there any settings in the advanced tab that i need to change?

I never install the Intel Wifi configuration utility so i dont know if that would help or not. i have tried switching the antennas back and forth from one and two to see if that works and taking off the 3rd antenna but no luck with the 4965. please help me out.
im in urget help of getting this problem fixed. thanks.

The 5300 was taken from a Sony as I've heard and the 4965 was bought off ebay and was being used fine in a Dell 1330 and is still working with that laptop as thats where it came from

Dell :: Proper Part Number For 130 Or 150 Watt Power Supply
I've recently upgraded to a Quadro 2500m in my 9400. Sometimes after playing games for awhile it will freeze up for a second and then get really slow (sometimes staircase like lines will appear on the monitor). I doubt the 2500m is broken since it came in a sealed Dell box and my temps aren't too high, so I'm suspecting that the 130W adapter that I got off of eBay is not really up to it. I noticed that sometimes when it boots up it cannot recognize the adapter (Press F1 to continue, F2 for setup etc...) but other times it recognizes it as the 130W adapter fine.

I also noticed that that PA-13 that I have was made in 2004...isn't that way before any of the Inspiron 9400s came out?

So I'm wondering if anyone knows where to get a reputable 130/150W adapter and/or what the part numbers are that people have been using successfully.

Dell :: Inspiron 1501 Will Not Power On. LED Code: Caps And Scroll Lock Illuminated
