Apple :: Why 10-point Calibri In Word 2008 Looks Like 15-point Calibri In Mail

Mar 31, 2010

Weird question, but: why is it that in Apple Mail, I can set an outgoing font to 15-point Calibri and have it look identical to an incoming Office 2007 user's message sent from Outlook (and in fact, "show fonts" shows it as 15-point Calibri), but in Word 2008, if I were to set it to 15-point Calibri, it would be huge compared to what I remember it as in Office 2007?

Its default in Office '07 is 11 point, if memory serves. To my eyes, 10-point zoomed to 150% looks normal, but I definitely do not remember this.

Is this just a function of OSX's 72 dpi versus Windows's 96 dpi? I'd hate to send an email at 15-point Calibri, have it look like an 11-point Calibri message in Outlook '07 on the Windows size, and end up having my recipient get an email with a HUGE font.

I've looked at messages I've sent using 14- or 15-point Calibri in Outlook 2010 in Windows 7 via Boot Camp, and it looks like I'd expect 11-point Calibri to look.

HP Dv8110us OS/Software :: Windows Clean Install / Upgrading To Windows 7

Mar 25, 2014

Have an HP DV8110us Pavilion notebook purchased in 2006.  Running XP SP3.  Upgrading to Windows 7 with a clean install.  Ran the MS Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.   This notebook has the AMD Turion 64-bit chip running at 1.8 mhz.  I have 2 GB memory.  Looking through the Win7 options, I decided to order Win7 32-bit, since I'm only carrying 2 GB of memory.  Win 7 64-bit seems to be happier with 4 GB.  While the Advisor shows I have some drivers that need updating after Window 7 is installed, I just noticed that the Realtex RTL8139/810x NIC needs a new driver for 32-bit Win7, but under 64-bit Win7, the NIC is compatible.
Should I have ordered the 64-bit Win7 ?  Or should I look around for a new Realtek driver ?  Realtex has a link to an old Vista driver that should work.  Other searches suggest that a workable driver might be on the Win7 DVD.

Dell :: Control Point 1.3

Oct 14, 2009

Anyone else having problems with DCP 1.3000 A12 (or something like that) on Vista x64?

Specs are in my sig.

Basically, after installing the newest DCP today, I lost control of screen brightness and the Auto-Light Sensor, meaning I can't change the brightness levels, NOR does the ALS affect brightness levels. I still have control of the keyboard backlight though.

After trying the 2 older DCP versions on Dell's site, the results were the same. The ALS version never changed.

Dell :: Control Point System Manager

Feb 8, 2010

Has anyone used the newest version of Control Point System Manager software?

They really really dumbed it down as now you don't have the ability to individually turn off things (SD card reader, DVD/CD Rom, etc).

If anyone does any type of power management with individual parts I'd highly advise them to avoid this version.

Dell :: How Do I Disable Control Point WiFi

Apr 17, 2009

Just got my E4300. There are a few things bugging me about the unit such as the touchpad and touchpad buttons.
But one of the real annoying things is the Control Point.

Especially for wi-fi.
Once the computer is running, I can see at least four items on my system tray associated with wifi, or connecting to it.

How can I simply let the windows wifi manage my wifi?
For some reason,

when I hybernate or go on standby, the wifi (managed by Control Point) doesn't automatically connect again. I have to disable my wifi and enable it again to find my router. Or Reboot.

Very annoying.
It also completely disables the windows built wifi. So "repair" wifi doesn't work because it doesn't even see my network.

So, Is it ok to disable simply the wifi portion of the control point?
Better yet, what's the proper way of doing this?

I'm fine with the other stuff, I just find the wireless networking portion of it annoying.

Apple :: How Do I 'point' Home Folders To Different Drives

Aug 23, 2009

I have a SSD/HDD setup in my 13" MBP, 60GB and 500GB respectively, that being said, I want to make the link to "Movies, Torrent, and Applications" go there.

For Torrent and Applications it's easy, move the folders, delete the original, set an alias in the home folder. Done. (My application folder is for storing Games, and other Apps that are either OSX or WIndows apps, not the actual App folder that OSX uses for programs.)

Anyways, I create a Movies folder on my other HDD, and go to delete the old Movies folder on the SSD/OSX Drive, and OSX tells me, "You cannot delete because this folder is required by OSX."

OK, but how do I get it to link to the new drive?

In Win 7 I remember just opening properties, and clicking 'set target folder' and bam it's done. I did this a lot back then.

ALSO, If I UNMOUNT my second HDD, does it 'shut off' and 'stop consuming power'?

I realised I can re-mount it in Disk Utilities, and probably with a Unix command.

I just wanna save power when I'm mobile, by not having to use the spinner.

Dell :: Windows 7, 64 Bit, And Upgrading RAM

Oct 26, 2009

I have a E1505 (6400) and I was running Vista 32 bit with 2 x 1 gb ram. I bought 2 x 2 gb ram, and it caused all sorts of problems.

I took the opportunity to upgrade to 64 bit with Windows 7 (clean install), and I reinstalled my 2 x 2 gb of RAM. It seems to be running smoothly so far... But only 3.25 gb is recognized as "usable" in Windows and my BIOS.

Does anyone know any settings I need to change or if there is a different BIOS for 64 bit OS's?

I did some googleing and found some recommendations for updating the BIOS if RAM that should be usable is not.

HP/Compaq :: Before Upgrading To Windows 7

Dec 2, 2009

I've finally recieved my windows 7 disk from HP

But before I go and upgrade/install everything I have a few questions.

1. Am I able to do a clean install? Does the product key in the kit allow for me to do this?

2. How would I go about doing a clean install properly? (paranoid about mucking things up)

3. After doing a clean install, am I able to use the second disk to update the drivers, etc. or can I only use it when doing the upgrade option?

HP Envy 17 :: Suddenly Goes Into Hibernation - Won't Charge Past Certain Point

Dec 18, 2014

Starting last week my laptop has been experience some battery issues. I noticed first that when it got to around 25 or 30% battery, it would suddenly go into sleep mode (at least, that's what I think it's doing. When I plug it in and turn it back on, the HP loading screen appears, but everything else returns to exactly how it was). Once back on, the battery has been reduced to 1%.
Also, it won't charge past certain percentages, which are gretting progressively lower. At first it was 98%, then 93%, and at the moment 35%.  It will say that it is charging, however.
When I use HP Support Assistant, my battery displays as "Okay". My friend used a program that drained my battery as fast as it could (I can't remember what that type of program is called) and I think he said that it did it in about 25 minutes or so, which is expected of a laptop of this age (about a year and a half old).

Acer :: Upgrading Your Timeline To Windows

Oct 21, 2009

how are folks preparing to upgrade their Acer Timeline to Windows 7? Are you assembling the drivers on Acer's website, or are you content to rely, at least initially, on Windows 7 drivers? For folks who will be upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, what are you doing about the fact that there seem to be very few drivers and applications currently on Acer's support website?

I keep telling myself that Acer is going to release something, anything, in the next few days giving customers at least some guidance and help on how to get their Timelines fully compatible with Windows 7, but those are probably pipe dreams. So... as folks upgrade to Windows 7 over the coming weeks, it might be helpful to post experiences--good and, in particular, bad--for the benefit of the community.

Acer :: 7535g Upgrading To Windows 7

Jan 12, 2010

I own a Acer 7545g and in October I ordered my Windows 7 and yesterday it finally arrived from Mentor Media.

So I followed the step by step instructions and installed Windows 7 with out any problems and added the drivers.

How ever in device manager next to HD4570 there is a (!) so I think my Laptop was only using the HD3200 card.

I tried getting the drivers from ACER Driver webpage and from ATI radeon and it will not work.

Has any one else having this problem? Any one knows if ACER/ATI plans to release a driver to fix this or have ACER just raped me?

I have now reverted to using Vista Ultimate x32 and every works perfectly, but I would like to use Windows 7

I guess it'll be down to pre-installed antennas, compatible slot/space and SIM card reader.

On a seperate point, I wouldn't mind upgrading the memory too

HP/Compaq :: Video Card, Keyboard And Point-stick -- Comparison

Jan 21, 2010

Im interested in the HP ProBook 6540b:

I presently have a Lenovo T500 with the ATI 3650 video card, primarily use the UltraNav mouse (similar to point-stick), and regard the Lenovo keyboard as being pretty nice. Yes, i actually DO think the T61 keyboard was better.. but that's besides the point. What I want to know is..

How does the 3650 compare to the 4550?
How does the ultranav compare to the point-stick?
How is the keyboard in comparison to a Lenovo?

My desire is to have a number pad, nearly equivalent keyboard, faster graphics (its newer, it should be better), and hopefully, the point-stick doesn't drift like my Lenovo does. I don't do CAD, only light video encoding, and I fully intend to play Diablo-iii if it ever comes out.
