  • I have the HP envy window8 and monitor AOC 22 "Led. I can't get all the colors to be displayed.

    Original title: color monitor

    I have the HP envy window8 and monitor AOC 22 "Led.  I can't get all the colors on the screen. The colors are bright that I receive, but can't get the yellow, green, purple. etc. I followed in the Help menu for calibration of the colors without success by the buttons on the monitor in windows.

    Hi Ellen,.

    (a) you use HP ENVY laptop or desktop computer?

    (b) what is the model number for HP ENVY and monitor AOC?

    (c) what kind of connector do you use to connect the monitor?

    (d) have you tried to use the other cable and check if works?

    You may experience this problem if the connections between your computer and your monitor is loose or if the drivers of graphics cards is corrupted. Try these methods and check if that helps:

    Method 1: I suggest you to update the latest drivers for the graphics card for Windows 8 and check if it helps:


    Method 2: Visit the COA Web site and install the latest drivers by selecting the drivers of the AOC monitor for your model and see if it helps:


    See the documentation for your monitor and see if you can find the menu to restore default settings. If the problem persists I suggest you to contact the manufacturer (AOC) for assistance.

    Also refer to this article: get the best display on your monitor


    Hope this helps, if you need help on Windows let us know we will be happy to help you.

  • How can I get the regular color picker? CC of Photoshop for mac

    Right now it looks like this...

    Screen Shot 2016-01-06 at 12.40.39 PM.png

    You see the 32-bit color selector because your document is in 32-bit mode. You can also choose colors in 32-bit mode using Windows > color Panel which has other options, such as RGB, CMYK, STL, etc..

    Or you can change the Image > Mode 16-bit or 8-bit, depending on what your end goal will be. These modes will give you the color picker you want.

  • I can only get dial up and need an accelerator. SlipStream is not compatible with the ideas of 8.0.1.Any? Thank you!

    I'm in a place where I can only use dial up. Currently, I use Firefox version 3.6 and have no problem with SlipStream. SlipStream is an accelerator of dial up. I want to update to 8.0.1, purpose, it seems to be compatible with SlipStream. My local support tech (Pennswoods) don't think it's compatible. The existing plugin does not work. Any ideas that I can use? Thanks for any info. (I'm not real great with computers)

    Sorry, you're stuck with what version of Slipstream than your ISP has available. They need to know what versions of Firefox are supported by their Accelerator plugin, because your ISP is paid more than probably Slipstream for each update is necessary.

    Have you asked your ISP what versions of Firefox are supported by their accelerator plugin?

    In addition, the only thing I can suggest is to see if the Addon Compatibility Reporter extension force than Accelerator plugin works in Firefox 8, with compatibility substitute. But if this plugin has not been updated for a version of Firefox 4 + at all, I doubt if it will work even with the addon of the cab.

  • Satellite L550 PSLW8A can only get OEM Win7 Pro 32-bit to 64-bit?

    Hi all

    I am writing from Australia.

    Two weeks ago, I bought a new laptop Toshiba ([http://tinyurl.com/ye6jkuq]) with the following characteristics:

    Model: Satellite L550
    Reference number: PSLW8A-01101F
    BIOS: V1.60
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P7450 2.13 GHz
    RAM: 4 GB
    HARD DRIVE: 500 GB
    OS: Windows 7 Professional 32-bit (OEM preinstalled)

    My question:
    How can I switch to Win7 Pro * 32 - bit * for Win7 Pro * 64 - bit *?

    If I use the recovery disk (the hidden recovery partition) utility to do a clean reinstallation of Win7 Pro, I will give the choice during the process of resettlement of the installation either the 32-bit version or 64-bit?

    Or I have + not + get the choice at all and simply be limited to the OEM Win7 Pro 32-bit that came pre-installed version?

    All advice or information about how to pass OEM Win7 Pro 32-bit to Win7 Pro 64-bit would be appreciated.



    AFAIK almost all new laptops are available with 32 and 64-bit OS and two recovery images are saved on the HARD drive.
    When you start installation HARD drive you should see the option to choose which version must be installed.

    Simply start the installation of HARD drive and you will see what menu you will see at the beginning. Not be afraid to do so. Nothing will happen.
    Real OS installation starts two steps later. If you can not damage preinstalled OS.

  • How can I get the addon "Colorful tabs" to work with the addon "classic restaurateur theme?

    I have the colourful tabs addon. But after the addition of the addon Classic theme restaurateur (to retrieve my tabs on the bottom), the color tabs addon does not work. My tabs are now all the same color work addon of the tabs colorful so that all tabs are different colors, so to say to which tab is the one that you use the right then the active tab puts a thin line on the tab bar of the same color as the active tab. So if you have 5 tabs open and they are all the diffierent colors, whether the tab your page in the Green, then you will see a thin green line on the screen (sort of like a horizontal border line). I can see a colored line (different from the color of all the tabs are now) under the tab bar. If I click on a different tab, change the color of the line. I can't tell what color my tab SHOULD be if it was just work, so I know that this addon is installed and working, but not to the poster for a reason any. Is it possible to fix this?

    I'm under Win 8.1 (64) and 30,0 FF. Thank you

    If you only use the extension of the CTR for the tabs at the bottom, then there are other ways like code in userChrome.css or an extension like tabs on background that might work better.

    You can move the tabs on the lower position, just above the navigation area without the use of an extension cord with code to userChrome.css that basically, you just give the tab bar a higher value of - moz-box-ordinal-group (most toolbars have a default value for - moz-box-ordinal-group: 1 to show them in the order of DOM).
