It was the same story this morning, the appearance was back to default and my themes had disappeared. If I stay connected to the internet my themes remain the same.

  • which is updated when you turn off your computer

    I got a problem with the connection to the internet and also using IE9 when I could. I solved my problem of the internet first by disabling my FIOS router wireless can will turn off PC and when starting, I first turn on my computer desktop and then put on my FIOS wireless router after waiting for about 20 seconds.  IE9 still has problems of since I installed Firefox and it works fine. When I had problems with getting Internet from my office, I was able to access the internet through my laptop using the same wireless router FIOS. I know that I was going through the FIOS wireless router because I could see the correct SSID number. So my question is what happens when off their workstation (which is updated). My desktop is Windows Vista Home Premium and using a wireless router FIOS I know is not (FIOS router) at the origin of the problem.

    When you stop your desktop computer, how could anything updated? This is the stop.

  • Lose internet when I turn off printer (WUSB600N)

    I'm having a very strange problem.  When I turn off my Canon MX850 printer connected USB, I lose my internet connection.  I get this error message in my event viewer:

    Event type: WARNING
    Event source: Dhcp
    Event category: no
    Event ID: 1009

    A network error has occurred when trying to send a message. The error code is: a blocking operation was interrupted by a call to WSACancelBlockingCall.

    I am running Windows XP pro SP3 and my WUSB600N adapter is connected wireless to a Linksys WRT600N router.

    Someone has ideas of how solve this problem?

    Thank you!

    I solved this by uninstalling Linksys Wireless Network Monitor.  I no longer disconnect from the internet when I turn off a device USB or Firewire (ipod, canon mx850 printer, external hard drive).  However, by using the Automatic Configuration of Windows isn't a perfect solution.  The downside is that I frequently 2-5 second freeze ups in World of Warcraft with WZC, especially in combat.  So my solution is to stop the automatic configuration service once I started and have an internet connection.  This is quite annoying!

  • Error messgae: "the screen saver cannot run because it requires a more recent video card", attempting to display the screen saver and the error code 40 download the fix.

    Original title: cannot run zip; error code 40 (hotfix for the video card)

    Hi, I ' m trying to view my screen saver and it seems to be causing "the screen saver can't run because it requires a newer video card or compatible with 3d graphics." (2030 M-windows7 dell) .thanks Jean-Michel

    Hi John,.

    1. what screen saver are you trying to view?

    2 is confined to a specific screen saver?

    3. have you installed SP1 for Windows 7?

    This problem occurs because of a problem in 3D screensavers.

    Fix error occurs if you have a corrupt hotfix package or may have downloaded the wrong patch for your platform.

    This can also occur if the hotfix is included in SP1 and you have already installed Windows 7 SP1.

    Method 1:

    You must make sure that the hotfix you download is depending on the version of Windows 7 installed on your computer.

    For more information, see the article:

    Error message when you set a 3D screen saver screen saver in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2: "the screen saver can't run because it requires a more recent or Direct3D-compatible video card.

    Please see if you can copy the file that you downloaded to another computer or location and try to unpack.

    When you download the fix, save it in a new location (on the desktop) and the password given with the fix allows to extract the file.

    Method 2:

    Step 1:

    You can also try to run the display quality Troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Step 2:

    You too, try to install the latest version of the Site Web of Dell display drivers and check if it helps.
