  • My policy changed completely after the last update of Firefox. It's a little smaller, less fat and much less clear. Please tell me how to solve this problem.

    The default font used on sites like Facebook, Craigslist, Google etc. has become much worse since the last update. It is much less clear, looks almost like a chop and transparent. As if the part of the letters missing. Less "BOLD" and a little bit more smaller institutions.

    Hi miked91, this is probably caused by kb3013455 of update from microsoft that can cause problems of rendering fonts on vista:

    After you have installed the 3013455 security update, you may notice a degradation in quality of text in some scenarios. The problem occurs only on systems running Windows Vista SP2 or Windows Server 2003 SP2. Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.


    an option may be to tackle this particular update for now until there is a fix from microsoft or you could also look at if there is a graphics driver update available on the Web site of the seller (intel/amd/nvidia) which could also be solved this problem in some cases.

    original title: scanning for dell studio 1737 and recommended bios update

    Hello, generally, I read until I have my answer, but I can't so I think I give it a try. Somehow I screwed things up with my computer. My main complaint is that I have something running that takes a lot of memory according to the Task Manager. My fan runs often, 1-1/2 minute stop time, pop up messages telling me to stop then reload IE9 sp2. I found some stuff on my event viewer, but I can't seem to cross the first error which is something on my bios. I go to the dell website to try to update with a flash of the bios but note comes up saying that my computer does not accept the flash. I have other issues in both event viewer, but can't remember them that I can't get beyond the the bios issue. The computer is a Dell Studio 1737 plenty of core duo memory 4 MB with plenty of space on hard drive and it seems to do well but all the * running in the background makes it run hot so the fan. All I want to do is get a scan for my installed bios system and install an updated version. I am not able to do at Dell. Maybe they want me to pay to support or something. I did all the FixIt of ms, I ran three different registry cleaners, I ran three viruses different scans, nothing. I've loaded my vista dell disk and tried to recover or repair and cannot do it either. I notice weird things with ie. I've done several downloads for versions 32 and 64 bit, to do the right thing. Maybe he has an it is to say the conflict or something. Whatever it is, I'm sure it's related to the fact that my computer takes 1-1/2 minutes to stop, even if it starts normally. I played with it for about a month now and I'm traps at all reading. If I can Flash my bios and get this update, maybe, I'll be able to get then some of the other things go. Here are some tips from the event viewer if anyone has any time for her. $ 1 million for any help thanks! If anyone knows where I can find a site that can digitize to my existing configuration and then recommend the installed updates. Oh, just in case anyone is wondering why I do not pay just for a few servieces for help me, or take it to a computer store, I don't have a job and can not afford it. Believe me. I have many errors saying: the embedded controller (EC) has failed in the specified time-out period. This may indicate that there is an error in the EC hardware or firmware or BIOS is accessing the EC incorrectly. You should check with the manufacturer of your computer for an updated BIOS. In some cases, this error may cause the computer to function properly. And The Office Source Engine service entered the stopped state. Service WinHTTP Web Proxy Auto - Discovery Service entered the running state. The Google Software Updater service entered the running state.

    The first task manager...

    Open it and then click the CPU tab until the processes that use most of time processor are grouped at the top of the list.

    The system idle process should be at the top and then maybe three points below that seem to take the time to processort.

    Make a note of them and then look on the Internet that each fact or the program, application or process to which they are linked.

    Forget the event viewer and any reference to it in the BIOS...

    All the * running in the background will not cause it's running more hot so the fan. BUT, you can have installed something knowingly or perhaps inadvertently causing the CPU work all the time. Reference to what I said about the Task Manager. This is where you will find the cause most likely.

    Fact MS Fix - its for what exactly?

    Use of registry cleaners will create more problems than they ever solve. You may well have created one of the issues by running a registry cleaner. Uninstall them as best as POSSIBLE...

    Three viruses different scans? Without doubt completely uninstalled before the installation and execution of another? In addition, what av scanners?

    Many downloads of 32 and 64 bits, what?

    Your computer may take a long time to stop if an open e-mail program is defined on control too frequently, or if a backup utility is configured to check the differences between system and backup is too frequent. In addition, some gadgets can slow down to stop, and USB keys will cause Windows to ensure that there is no process to read/write that run to them before she stops them.

    Flashing the BIOS is not and has never been the panacea for all the ills of the computer and won't solve ANYTHING in your case.

    If you have upgraded from Vista...

    Go to the Dell support site and downlaod driver and install any Windows 7 drivers for your machine other than BIOS. If you enter your number of service on this site...

    you will be presented only with the specific drivers for your machine.

    This should eliminate the errors of the EC.

    I'm not a computer genius, but I know that's not my wireless which is mess up and not allow me to access internet from my laptop.  If I try to access my home, or somewhere else that provides wireless internet, I always have trouble getting.  IF it connects, it shows 'Local' only and not allow me to access the internet.  It seems to do this when I am on the internet while someone else in my household is on it as well.  Which shouldn't be a problem at all.  I should be able to access the internet if someone else uses it or not.  Never had this problem until I got this new laptop with vista.  It lasts for almost a year now and I'm taking classes online and cannot deal with this problem any longer.  Please someone help me solve this ongoing problem that seems to be quite common!
