My Samsung 220WM monitor keeps spamming volume.?
This started yesterday. When I was playing League of Legends yesterday, my monitor started glitching. It kept raising the volume on its own. It was no Windows volume, it was the monitor. My monitor has speakers and it was raising the volume on that on its own. Any time I attempted to get rid of it, it came back and raised the volume again. There was no way to avoid this. Because of the fact that it was the monitor volume, the volume settings showed through everything and it showed up directly in the middle of the screen. I understand this is an old monitor, but the drivers are updated and it's been working fine the entire time until now. When it stops, it stops for a couple hours, then without warning, the volume icon pops back up and I am unable to do anything about it. I don't know if this has anything to do with it, but I got a new mouse, keyboard, and headset; but I don't think it has anything to do with the volume increasing for the monitor. All of my drivers are updated and everything is functional, but it's just the monitor that keeps spamming the screen increasing the volume to 100. I don't know if this will help but here are my computer specs. (Old custom build PC)
Intel Core Duo E6850 3.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce GT 610 (Zotac)
7.00 GB RAM
Windows 7 OS
Thank you in advance for the help.
It's probably a short in the Volume button on the screen. You can disconnect the speakers on the screen and use some better speakers or cut the lines on the circuit board leading to the volume up button. The latter will break your ability to increase the volume, so it's best to do the same to the volume down button so you don't get it stuck at too low a volume by mistake.
How to blow this picture up without graining?
I've made a 8 bit like picture in photoshop just by using the pencil and drawing on a 80x40 canvas. Now I'm finished, but it's a bit small, so I'd like to blow it up to 160x40.
When I view the image at 200%, its perfectly clear, and looks perfect, yet why I try to blow it up using Image Size... it makes it all blurry and fuzzy.
How do I blow it up to double size while keeping the clean look of it? I know it's possible, because I can blow it up with ctrl + plus, it shows it perfectly clear at the size I want. I guess I could screen cap it and paste it, but there's got to be a better way then that...
Also, Im using photoshop CS2. Yeah I know, it's kind of old! :p
@More confused, if there isn't enough data for the bigger image, why am I able to view the larger image using ctrl+plus with perfect quality? The image I need is here, I just don't know how to save it like this.
Go to Image -> Image Size. Set your new size. Looks like you want to make it wider without making it taller - that's not the same as 200%. You'd want 160x80 in that case.
Under Resample Image, choose the Nearest Neighbor algorithm. This blows up the image without trying to interpolate - each pixel in the original image becomes 4 in the new image in your case.
Would Windows 7 Be Faster Video Stream Than WIndows Vista?
I'm not sure if that would make a difference. I have a HP Mini. I use Chrome as my browser, which is fast, but as far as Youtube & any other websites.its skipping a bit and not keeping up. Should I upgrade to solve the problem???
How fast is your Internet service? While the HP mini is a relatively low-powered device, it could be pausing while it loads more of the video.
Some older HP Mini's do not have hardware acceleration for decoding video and would not be able to keep up - no software upgrade would help with that.
Could she have access to my data on iCloud?
My sister and I both have iPods, iPads, and iPhones, but we have our own separate apple accounts. My sister has her iTunes logged in on the computer and I plug my iPod into hers to put music on it, and I've also plugged my iPad into her iTunes before but never my iPhone. There have been instances where our stuff has mixed like I would have her apps on my iPod and she would have mine on hers. My main questions is, is it okay to use iCloud on my devices and keep it private from her seeing everything? It's not like I have something to hide its just that I'd rather have my privacy. And all of my devices are under my account and hers are under hers, but I'm afraid of there being technology glitches and she could be sent my photos or something. Is that even possible? Thanks.
The iCloud account associated with the device is a separate setting from the iTunes account used to authorize any shared music you might have.
So you shouldn't have any concerns about her being able to access iCloud data.
Something wrong with my Wii?
I have been receiving this error message: "An error has occured. Press the Eject Button, remove the game disc, and turn the power off. Please read the Wii Operations Manual for more information."
This message has been appearing for only a single game on our Wii Console. The game is Animal Crossing, and it is brand new and has only been played twice. There are no scratches on the disk, but we have attempted to clean it off just in case we couldn't see the scratches. Nothing is working and it keeps giving us the same message. Every other game is fine, though, for we have played Wii Sports Resort, Mario Brothers, and Epic Mickey and it has been fine. Does anyone know what could possibly be wrong with it?
I would say it's defective. Return it to the store for an exchange. It may not be scratches, but a defect or bubble in the glue that holds the disc together that is gradually getting worse.
why isnt GIMP showing up on my computer?
ive downloaded GIMP but its not showing on the desktop or the taskbar, ive redownloaded a few times already but its still not working, ive found it on control panel for installation but other than that i couldnt find it on anything else. is it because im using windows 8?
Hit the start button or Windows key and look for it on the start screen. Or, start typing "GIMP" while on the start screen. It should come up in the search results as you type.
I've got about 500 CDs on my MacBook Pro. I might put 500 more on it. Which iPod should I buy and...?
Can I just easily copy all those CDs to the Ipod from the computer? Or will I have to load the original CDs again?
You would need 64GB to be sure and hold all 500 CD's. That is, if you used decent quality settings. As long as the CD's are loaded into iTunes, they will transfer to the iPod. They must be in MP3 or AAC or Apple Lossless Codec.
To make sure you don't have to reload the original CD's again, make regular backups of your iTunes music folder on your computer.
Computer keeps rebooting on it's own?
Ok, here's the background. I built a frankenbox last night (made a PC of old parts).
Pentium 4 1.7 GHz/ 400mhz FSB
Intel 845 Chipset
RAM: 576 MB / 133 SDR (2x256, 1x64)
80 GB (with bad clusters)
Fresh install of Win xp pro sp3
Ok so what happens is that it will run fine off disk (CD/DVD). The machine installed OS fine and it also will boot from a disk (portable xp and linux/ UBCD/ BB MRI,etc) but when I attempt to run it from the HDD it will run for about 15 - 30 minutes then all of a sudden will go to the bios splash screen and reboot itself.
I figured this could be the HDD so I ran HD Tune and did find about 3% bad clusters. I rebooted the OS and scheduled chkdsk and now it will run chkdsk stages 1-3 with no issues, stage 4 finds and repairs clusters, on stage 5 it gets to about 5% and reboots.
Now I'm stuck in a loop with chkdsk and it will not complete. This is just a junk pile I'm playing with no I do not want to buy any parts. Any ideas on how to repair the HDD or keep the OS from writing to the bad sectors and solve this issue?
Thanks for the help folks!
Download the drive utility and run their live CD. It will either remap the bad sectors or tell you the drive has failed and you will need a new one. Afterward, you should reinstall Windows.
I recommend you download the DOS bootable CD version as you'll have a hard time getting Windows to stay running through this.
editing a wedding video?
im am trying to do someone a nice simple wedding video and wedding photo album. I am looking for a program that will let me add some low background music and add a title to come up and say the wedding of a and b.there isn't a video of the night time so i would also like to add some pictures of the night time to roll into the end.I would also like a program to edit the still photos to remove red eye and possibly impose a different background to some of the pictures as the background to them is really bad. I am reasonably competent with computers but the simpler the better.
Hmm...easiest would be to invest a little money in Adobe Premiere Elements:
There are free options available, but they are far too frustrating.
