  • How can I change the settings Windows XP Pro so it stops completely rather than go into sleep mode?

    I run Windows XP Pro and am fed up with my PC, switch to 'sleep' mode when I told him to stop.  How can I change the settings so it stops completely instead of sleep mode? Please do not assume that I know computers - a complete manual would be better. Thank you very much.

    Hello Cosmicbbb,

    Thank you for your message.  If you want to withdraw your option set to the option "Turn off computer", you can make the following registry edit.
    Click Start > click Run > type regedit and press "Enter."
    Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ACPI\Parameters.
    Right-click in the empty space in the right pane and select new | DWORD value.
    Attribute value name
    Then, double-click attributes
    Make sure hexadecimal is selected by breaking 70
    Click OK, close the registry editor and restart.
    Now when you choose to stop the computer in the start menu in XP, you will not be able to choose the day before by accident.

  • Windows Photo Gallery. How can I change the settings in the Windows Photo Gallery to automatically open the image without going to the index first?

    Windows Photo Gallery.  How can I change the settings in the Windows Photo Gallery to automatically open the image without going to the index first?

    Additional information: there are 2 computers that I use on the first Gallery Photo of Windows will open the image and allow me to use the left and right buttons to scroll through the rest of the photos in the folder, that's what I want.

    On the 2nd computer when I open an image it will open the Windows Photo Gallery in an index with thumbnails of the displayed record.  How can I change so that it opens the same thing as the first computer?

    I did the following on both computers; Right-click on the image and select open with...--> choose the default program--> go--> Program Files, Windows Photo Gallery, but it will be open always differently on computer 2.

    Both computers use Windows Vista 32-bit.

    Thanks in advance.

    Australian salvation,

    This would happen if the file associations are corrupted on the computer, try method to set Photo Gallery Windows as the default program for opening files jpeg or png below image types.

    (a) open default programs by clicking the Start button, click default programs.

    (b) click on associate a type of file or Protocol with a program

    (c) in the following list of file protocol search jpeg and make sure that you have associated with the program that uses it and then check if it works.

    Change the programs that Windows uses by default

  • How can I change the energy saving mode

    I have an Office Jet Pro 8600, networked (ethernet connection) and I am running Windows XP.  When I click on print, I receive a message that the document cannot print.  I click on the message to open the print window, which usually reads "error".  I also have another window which asks me if I want to cancel printing.  I close this window and wait.  After several seconds, the 'mistake' becomes 'offline' and after several seconds, it turns into 'impression', and the work is done.  Even if I print several documents in a line, this sequence happens at least 90% of the time.  I tried not even touch the window print on the printer to turn on the printer before printing, but the same sequence occurs.

    How can I change the settings of the printer so that the printer will stay on for a longer period of time between print jobs?  This sequence might be OK on the first document, because the printer is in save mode, but certainly not OK if I print several documents.

  • I forgot my password for windows 7 for my laptop and a reset disk has not been created. How can I recover the password or create a new one? and I have a dell desktop inspiron one 19

    I forgot my password for windows 7 for my laptop and a reset disk has not been created. How can I recover the password or create a new one? and I have a dell inspiron one 19 desktop... your help will be very appreciated thanks in advance!

    Here are the usual methods to solve this problem:

    • Restart the computer with your Windows repair CD, then use system restore to set Windows in a few days (only works if you have recently changed the password).
    • Logging in as a different admin account and then reset the password for your existing account (works only if create you an alternative admin account).
    • Log in as administrator mode without failure, then reset the password for your existing account (works only if you have activated the account administrator and know its password).
    • Insert your flash drive USB with the password key file (only works if you have created such a keyfile).
    • Check your paper files (works only if you threw down the password somewhere)

    If none of these standard precautions work for you, then the remedy will be painful. Post again if this is the case.

  • Satellite A200-1AE: How can I configure the settings of buttons Dual Mode Pad?

    Hello

    I recently bought a Satellite A200-1AE. I tried to configure the default first button on my touch pad (lower left) so that I can fire up MSWord, but it did not work.

    Now every time I have set the mode button and press this button, that nothing not to pass - I lost practically this button.

    My question is how can I configure the mode button on the touch pad settings? Even if I was able to start a program by using the 3 buttons how can I modify these programs?

    Thanks for your help!

    p.s. I read the extended version of the manual for my laptop. There is no explanation of my problem - it says I should look "Synaptics Dual Mode Pad properties.

    I don't know where are these properties.

    Hello

    It s is not so difficult as you think, the properties of the synaptics are in the "mouse properties" of your "Control Panel" of windows. When you reach the 'mouse', then click on the "Advanced" tab and you should find a button 'Advanced functionality settings'.
    It could be that the button is not named as mine, but it must be identical.
    After clicking on it, you should look for this 'easy' Launcher in one of the tabs.

    I think that you will make it, but I'd like some feedback from you.
