1. Weird YouTube problem

    Date: 04/09/13     Keywords: google

    Okay, this is really weird and I can't find any info about it on Google (and I don't know what terms I should search anyway). For the past two days whenever I try to watch a video on YouTube in fullscreen, it just puts the video in the upper-left corner of the screen and makes the rest of the screen black, like this:


    youtubefullscreenglitch


    It's really weird because fullscreen videos worked perfectly fine until yesterday morning.

    Googling "youtube won't play fullscreen videos" just gets me advice for what to do if the screen is completely black (or white) which isn't the problem I have. (I did try that advice anyway--which was basically to uncheck the hardware acceleration box in Settings after right-clicking the video--and it didn't help) Also tried doing a CClean and that didn't help either. I can't think of what else I should try for this.

  5. vista not starting. bsod at startup, probably my fault

    Date: 01/27/13     Keywords: no keywords

    ugh, I hate having to post here again so soon but I'm having another problem. I had scheduled a CHKDSK last night for the next time my computer was booted up. Turned it on about two hours ago and the startup screens came on fine but CHKDSK didn't start, instead it was just a black screen (monitor off completely, seemingly--similar to the problem I had last time). I waited about 8-10 minutes for CHKDSK to start but it never did and nothing else happened either. After about 15-20 minutes I did a hard shutdown, which was probably a Huge Mistake, because Vista bluescreened at startup (can't remember error message, sorry) and the computer restarted. Got the "Windows did not start correctly" error screen. Did startup repair, upon finishing laptop restarted and I got the Windows startup error again. Did ANOTHER startup repair. This time when it restarted after finishing, bootup screens displayed fine but now I've got a black monitor again (been about 30 mins), and the Caps Lock light doesn't turn on when I press that button. I'm scared to turn the laptop off again since I'm pretty sure that's what got me into this trouble in the first place (either that, or scheduling the CHKDSK run). Also I can't seem to boot into Safe Mode, F8 doesn't do anything when I tap it during startup. I don't have any recovery disks or anything either. Using Vista sp...2, I believe, 32 bit. Laptop is HP Pavilion DV6000.

    EDIT: After trying about half a dozen+ "fixes" which didn't work, I finally had to reformat/recover Vista. Luckily I've only had this laptop for about a month so I didn't have much stuff on there, and I was successfully able to back up everything on my external HDD. Reformat/recover worked, I haven't had any issues with this computer since then (did it on the 27th I think).

  7. HP DV6000 monitor issue

    Date: 01/06/13     Keywords: no keywords

    (posting from Wii internet) I got a used HP DV6000 for Christmas and yesterday I was playing a FB game on it when it suddenly froze/crashed and I had to do a forced shutdown. When I turned it back on, it seemed to boot up normally (the monitor was on at this time) but right after it booted up, the monitor turned off completely and would not turn back on. After five minutes of waiting I turned it off, tried again, still nothing. On my third try, I hit F10 and was able to get into Setup mode, but I couldn't find anything there that seemed relevant. So I went online on the Wii to search for a solution. A few people said to cycle through the monitor button (which I THINK is F4) on the keyboard a few times. So I did that and--it worked (although this might have been due to going into Setup)! No issues with the monitor, at least last night. Tonight when I booted up--same problem, seems fine until after bootup screen then nothing. And the F4 trick is no longer working, nor is another one I found, which was to unplug, take out battery, hold down power button, then put everything back & turn on. I can, however, still access Setup so right now I'm doing a hard disk diagnostics test to see if anything's wrong there. Using Vista Home Premium.

    edit: FINALLY got it to boot up by forcing it to go into whatever that screen is called where it says Windows didn't boot up correctly (by turning it off as it was booting up--which I know is probably A Bad Thing but seriously I was desperate by this point), then doing a startup repair. Monitor is on now, obviously, but I don't know if this is a permanent fix or not.

  9. Livejournal.com not working via Wifi?

    Date: 06/23/12     Keywords: no keywords

    Hi!

    I'm experiences problems loading livejournal.com (any other page is working!) via my wireless modem - I'm connected via my phone's 3G hotspot now, which is working just fine.

    I've spent the last half hour on the phone with tech support, but they can't figure it out either - my roommate can't access it on his computer, I can't access it on my phone when connected to the wireless. I've tried rebooting everything, nothing helped.

    Strangely enough I can access https://www.livejournal.com/login.bml


    I'm on a Mac, OSX 10.6.8, using Chrome (have tried Safari, Firefox and an ancient version of IE for Mac, and Safari and Cabmobile on my phone).

    Does anyone have a clue? The prospect of never being able to use LJ normally again makes me very sadface :/

    Thanks in advance!


    ETA: Accessing it via anonymouse.org works as well. IP problem?

    i have no idea what my mom does to her computer, and she expects me to fix her computer, when i don't have the knowledge to do these sort of things! she's using windows xp, and whenever she tries to use her computer, it asks to sign into her online connection. we have an wireless internet connection and i've tried all of them to no avail. this is what it's showing me:

    any suggestions?

    edit: i ended up reinstalling windows again and that fixed it, now i'm stuck with a horrible resoulation and the lowest color bit (4), despite downloading the drivers. next step? finding my mom a new computer! this one is ancient.

  13. Laptop not charging

    Date: 05/04/12     Keywords: no keywords

    So, all of a sudden my laptop (Dell Latitude D800)'s AC adapter decided that it didn't feel like powering the computer anymore, and it's running on battery power right now. The little green light on the adapter is on, but it's not delivering power to the laptop and the battery isn't charging. It's at 75% right now and I've got just over two hours left (although I can check email on my Wii if I don't get an answer within that time), so is there an easy way to tell if it's the adapter, or the connector pins, or the laptop itself? Everything's plugged in to where it should be, and I even unplugged everything and plugged it back in and jiggled the plug that goes into the back of the laptop but nothing happened.
    EDIT from Wii: Okay, I ran a diagnostics test and I got error code 3600:0122 for the charger, and it said it wasn't connected even though it definitely was. Does this mean it's the connector pins?

  15. graphics are off slightly everywhere

    Date: 04/05/12     Keywords: security

    My computer information:

    Intel Core i5 CPU 750 2.67ghz x4
    8 gigs ram
    Windows 7 64 bit
    ATI Radeon HD 4600 series(graphics card)

    So I'm not sure what exactly is going on. I tried playing Civ 5 today and the graphics were a bit off. SWTOR's graphics were also off. Plus my desktop display is slightly bigger than it should be. Text seems a bit off in various things as well. And videos viewed on netflix are less clear. This happened today. I haven't downloaded any files or changed any settings. Not 100% sure if anything updated, but maybe adobe flash player? But would that affect everything else? I mention this because under control panel - system and security adobe flash player is labeled 32bit, not 64bit which my computer is running. Under control panel - system and security - system, the information says its running a 64 bit operating system. Shrug.


    So far I've tried adjusting the resolution, restarting my computer, reinstalling the graphics card drivers, and uninstalling the graphics card drivers and reinstalling them. This obviously has not worked. The drivers are the latest available.

    Is there a way for the computer to auto-detect the best settings for your computer(in case mine somehow got off?) Maybe a program I can download to do this or something that already comes with the operating system? Any other suggestions or ideas?

  17. Firewall(s)?

    Date: 11/13/11     Keywords: software

    Do I need a software firewall in addition to a hardware (wireless router) firewall? The reason I ask is that I've been trying to configure lauded firewall Comodo off-and-on all weekend (so that it gets along with other applications), but with limited success. Previously, I used Zone Alarm as software firewall, but it was causing my whole computer to slow down given various circumstances. Since installing Comodo, it has blocked zero intrusions which means that either it's junk (which doesn't seem likely, given how often it's recommended on various sites) or that my wireless router is doing its job. Thoughts? Thanks.

  19. batch renaming files

    Date: 11/13/11     Keywords: no keywords

    (crossposted)

    I am compiling a photo album of a trip, and am merging my own photo files with those of a family member's. The file names of my photos and his don't match, of course, being from different cameras. I am creating a new folder on my HD of all the photos I'm going to use in the album, and am going in chronological order, so mixing his files and mine. I want to keep this new folder in the order I have placed them, rather than file name order. Thus, I want to rename them in the order I've placed them.

    I'm running Windows Vista. I have done the usual batch rename (select all - rename to 'filename(001)') and it's reordering my files in the order of original file name, instead of how I've placed them in the folder. I need to know if renaming files in the order placed in a folder is possible in Vista, irregardless of original file name. Can anyone help??

    (Please don't tell me to downgrade/upgrade/switch OS. That's not an option at this point.)

    Thanks in advance!
