      The Owner’s Manual for my Dell laptop states “NOTICE: To prevent damage to the antiglare coating, do not wipe the display with soap or alcohol”.

    • in reply to: microsoft 6 to 4 adapter #1240166

      I have the same effect on my laptop running Windows Vista SP2. I found the following information in a posting by a Microsoft Online Support person:

      6to4 adapter is a component used for transmitting IPv6 packets through IPv4 network correctly.
      In some scenarios, there will be a code 31 or code 10 error appearing beside this component. A possible reason is, the network adapter doesn’t support this feature. You may update the driver for your network adapter or chipset, and then try to uninstall and reinstall the this component.
      To uninstall the component, right-click the item in Device Manager and select Uninstall.
      To reinstall the component, in Device Manager, Action – Add Legacy Hardware – Next – “Install the hardware that I manually select from a list” – Network adapters – Microsoft – Microsoft 6to4 Adapter – Next – Finish the wizard.
      If the steps above doesn’t solve the problem, your network adapter is not a supportive one for this component. You can completely ignore this error, if there isn’t IPv6 network deployed in the environment. The error won’t affect your system.
      To remove the error message, please right-click the Command Prompt and run as administrator, type the command netsh in 6to4 set state disable, press Enter. The component will be disabled and hidden.

      In my case I have been ignoring the error.

    • in reply to: Lower speaker volume #1230458

      If nobody has a programable solution you could fit a two-resistor attenuator ahead of the speaker. The resistor values should be chosen to give an input impedance equal to the nominal impedance of the speaker when the attenuator is loaded by the speaker. I suggest you start with around 6dB attenuation.

    • in reply to: SP3 woes #1197134

      After installing SP3 on Windows XP Home Edition I had network connection problems. Checking the System tab in eventviewer led me to entries about IRPStackSize being too small (IRP stands for I/O Request Packet). Microsoft Help & Support Article ID: 285089 ‘Description of the IRPStackSize parameter in Windows 2000, in Windows XP, and in Windows Server 2003’ explains how to increase the IRPStackSize value in the registry. In my case it was first necessary to create the IRPStackSize parameter in the registry before being able to set the value. A decimal value of 18 was enough to overcome my network problem without having to uninstall SP3.

    • in reply to: Big-time issue #1177099

      Weather was bad this morning. Selected shut down on my VistaHP system before I left for the office. Got home tongint. and the pc has been stuck in “Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3 0% complete Do not Restart your computer” An hour later, I got fed up and have been trying various methods to get into Safe mode to use ERUNT but without luck. Even have my OEM VIsta disk on hand and its options get me back to the same spot. Suggestions? I have Acronis but can’t seem to get at it. Thanks.

      One of the methods at http://www.tipandtrick.net/2008/endless-re…1-installation/ might work for you.

      Tom
      Do both computers have the same workgroup name (as they should)?

    • in reply to: No Welcome/Log-in Screen (Vista SP1) #1130765

      I have nothing else to suggest. Perhaps posting on a HP users forum or contacting HP direct are the best courses of action unless someone else on this forum can help.

    • in reply to: No Welcome/Log-in Screen (Vista SP1) #1130759

      Are you taking any action to “put the computer to sleep” or does the screen black out (or similar) if the computer is untouched for a period? If it is the latter, how long does it take and what (if anything) appears on the screen?
      Note: I am asking these questions to establish whether or not a screen saver is involved and, if so, the nature of the screen saver.

    • in reply to: No Welcome/Log-in Screen (Vista SP1) #1130722

      Your computer is not going to Sleep mode then. It is simply the screen saver kicking in.

    • in reply to: No Welcome/Log-in Screen (Vista SP1) #1130648

      Try stopping the Welcome Center from running. To do this uncheck the box beside Run at startup….. and close the Welcome Center. You can always get back to it from the System and Maintenance section of the Control Panel.

    • in reply to: window maximized problem (Home Premium sp1) #1129392

      The final step was ” use the corner arrow to resize the window to full size”. I wrote this on the assumption that the window was not returning to full size. However if the window returned to full size then this step is not possible. I also have windows Vista Home Premium SP1. I tried to reproduce your situation by following the steps in the first paragraph of your OP but did not end up as you have. I still have normal toggle between full size and half size. Maybe someone else can help you.

    • in reply to: window maximized problem (Home Premium sp1) #1129379

      Double-click a window’s title bar to make it go full screen. Then click the maximize button once and use the corner arrow to resize the window to half size. Then click the maximize button and use the corner arrow to resize the window to full size.

    • in reply to: No Virus Protection (Vista Home Premium) #1128271

      I had this problem and raised it with McAfee. I had all Windows Vista patches up to date and McAfee Security was fully updated. The answer in my case was the following from McAfee:
      Run McAfee update tool:
      https://us.mcafee.com/root/McAfeeUpdate.exe%5B/url%5D
      If the issue is not resolved, reinstall McAfee products after running cleanup tool.

      sfc /scannow scans the integrity of all protected system files and repairs files with problems when possible. I am not sure whether your problem is caused by the user name hiccup. No harm in checking the system files, although I have no idea whether the cause lies there.

    • in reply to: Syntax error (Vista Ultimate) #1128132

      Try running the Windows System File Checker tool. Click the Start button and type Command in the Start Search box. At the top of the left hand panel right click on Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator. At the command prompt type sfc /scannow and enter.
