Button Has Disappeared

I frequently extend desktop of my laptop to to another monitor by right clicking on the desktop selecting graphics options/ output to/ extend desktop/ notebook to digital television. The problem is the output to button disappeared. I attempted to go into personalization/ display/ and check the extend desktop option for the second monitor and this does not work. Also when my hdmi cable is plugged in my notebook monitor goes black. I just need to get the setting back to normal so i can extend my desktop to the second monitor.

5 Button Mouse Acts As 2 Button Mouse

I have been using the microsoft wireless laser 8000 mouse (4 buttons & scroll wheel) without any issues under windows xp and windows server 2008 r2. Unfortunately, i am not able to get the extra functions (left, right buttons and scroll wheel) to react at all. I have the latest intellipoint 7. 0 64-bit installed. I have uninstall and reinstalled the software, uninstalled the software and did a "clean" boot to install the software, without success. How can i fix this problem?

Radio Button

My wireless internet stopped working on my laptop with windows 7, dell inspiron 1545. I reset my router and 2 computers connect with the internet just fine. When i try to connect the laptop, i'm asked to reset the radio button. The listing for dell is to hit the fn + f2 button. But nothing happens after waiting, redoing, restarting. I don't see an icon in the tray for radio or anything like it. I right clicked the "connect to" button to find available wireless, but nothing shows up. Any ideas what to do next?

No Log In Or Submit Button

When i want to log in to my email there isn't any log in button. I have to search all over to find where it is by clicking the mouse all over. The same happens on some games, or when i want to order something or doing surveys. It will say click submit and there isn't any button to click. In other words, those buttons or whatever you call them, have disappeared.

Reserve How Fn Button Works?

I have an hp g62-134ca. On my old computer (running vista) i used to use f2 to edit cells in excel instead of having to double-click. It saved me a lot of time. On my new computer (g62-134ca), the fn button works in reserved. In other words, if i press f2, the monitor brightness is decreased (f3 makes the monitor brighter). To edit an excel cell, i need to press the fn + f2 combo (or double-click with my mouse). I'm wondering if there's a way that i could reverse how the fn button works so that if i press f2, i edit an excel cell, and if i press fn + f2 i decrease the monitor brightness. Thank you for any tips!

Shutdown Button Sometimes Deactivated

I have a problem with windows 7 professional 64 bit. Sometimes the shutdown button is deactivated, i can see the button but can't click on it. Only with ctrl+alt+del it's possible to shutdown, log off etc. The error appears randomly so sometimes it works, and i can shutdown, log off etc. With clicking the button. It isn't a user-right based error because i have the problem with admin rights and also with normal user rights. I don't have a policy running where the shutdown button is deactivated. I installed the os with help of the waik tools, sysprep and a unattend.xml file but i don't set anything like this in the unattend file. Does somebody have any idea what it could be?

Use Macro During Hold Mouse Button

For in a game i want to put a macro under de left mouse button, which is activated only when the mouse button is pushed and deactivates as soon i let go of the mouse button. I'm using a trackball explorer with intellipoint 7. 1 in win7 x64. At the moment i only can deactivate the macro when i push the mouse button again. Is there a way to deactivate the macro just by releasing the mouse button?

Also i have to disable uac completely to use programmable buttons via intellipoint in the game. The game has to run in administrator mode. I don't like the fact using macro's in games with the uac disabled. Is there another way to get macro recognized in games which run in admin mode?

Search And The Up One Level (folder) Button

So i have searched for something and found the folder i am looking for. I want to delete this folder (not just its contents) and maybe some other things in it's parent folder. Anyhow, i click into this folder from the search and then try to go up. First instinct, up button. Well that's not there, that's just old habit. Look to the whole breadcrumb bit. Only takes me back to my search.

Why would i want to go back to my search if i found what i am looking for. Lright, well maybe i am missing something. *Right click* look for up a level or something. Nada. The only way i can find out where i am is by clicking on a file and going to it's properties. Sorry, but this is just plain poor designing. I'll admit that maybe i am missing something still, please someone help me.

Start Button Doesn't Work

I have a toshiba laptop. I recently upgraded to windows 7, using all the compatibility programs from both microsoft and toshiba. I got the green light, and the message that windows had installed properly. Now, however, my start button only works intermittently. I reboot and reboot until it gives up and lets me access my programs. This is not something that happens because i haven't let the computer boot up properly. It sometimes stops working after i have been using the computer for hours.

Manage Default Printers Button Missing

I want to use window 7's ability to set different default printers for at home and at work, but the "manage default printers" button is missing from my screen. I had windows professional installed, but thought i read somewhere that it was only available with ultimate, then later i read that it was only available with premium. Do i need to do something when i connect to my home or office connection or turn something on for this feature to work?

Sidewinder X3 Mouse Wheel Button Problem

I had my sidewinder x3 mouse for a few months now and it was working perfectly until yesterday the mouse wheel started to act up, heres what it does: the button it self still clicks perfectly but for the mouse to actually read i pressed it i need to apply more pressure. It specially does this after i scrolled down but not as much after i scrolled up. I already brought back 2 other x3's at the store, one had the same problem and the other one jammed at a certain point when scrolling. Now the store wont take it back since my warranty is over. I use this mouse for first person shooters like call of duty modern warfare 2 so its very impotent for me that my hardware performs flawlessly. Is there anything i can do to fix this?

Disable Button In Device Manager Greyed Out

I am trying to disable a device in device manager of windows 7 64-bit pro. But the button is greyed out and in the drop down list (if i right click on the device) the option to disable is also not available. Is there a way to get that option back?

This is for the touchpad of my sony laptop. I want to use a little software i found that can automatically enable/disable the touchpad depending on the presence of an external mouse. But this software wants to disable the touchpad. But it can't because the option is missing from device manager.

Minimize, Maximize And Close Button Disappears

For some reason the minimize, maximize and close buttons disappear on top of my windows. This is so for all applications. The buttons are not visible, but they still work. For instance, if i click in the top right corner of the application, the application will close.
I don't know what causing this. Sometimes it happens just after i started my pc. Sometimes it doesn't occur for over an hour. I've tried to detect the reason, but i wasn't able.
I've surfed the internet trying to find a solution, but couldn't find anything that works (they speak of nvidia drivers often, but there isn't a nvidia driver in my laptop. ) Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

My Photos Have Disappeared

Most of my photos have disappeared; what happened to them? I transferred a bunch of pictures onto this new laptop. I had them arranged by month. I could access them by going to the pictures library or to user/my name/my pictures. Well, now i can see all of the monthly folders i created, but in 90% of them, it says folders are empty if i go to the my pictures, the folders are empty, . If i go to the pictures library and arrange by month, i can see them, but if i click to make it bigger, it says windows viewer can't open this because the picture has been deleted or it's in a location that isn't available. ? What happened to my pictures?

Changing Action Of Media Center Button Of Keyboard

Changing the action of my "start windows media center" button of my keyboard - without drivers! I am using windows 7 on my htpc (home theater pc, if someone isn't familiar with the terminology :)) and i love it so far! However, there is one thing which i'm not in love width - and that's the windows media center.

My keyboard (deltaco tb-220) has a special button from which i can start the wmc, but i'd rather use xbmc (xbox media center). The problem is that there aren't any software from which i can change the function of the special keys!

So, my question is: does anyone know a way to change the "default" media center from wmc to something else? For example with htpc remote controls or keyboards like mine and similar? Perhaps through editing something in the registry?

Ie8 Crashes When Send Button Is Pressed In Owa

I'm running windows 7 home prem. And connecting to my office via outlook web access. At first i couldn't type in the box as the red x appeared in the top left corner. I then downloaded the s/mime code from the exchange server which fixed the red x but now when i hit send ie comes back and says internet explorer has stopped working.

There is no other description of the problem. I have disabled dep, then re-enables, no change. I have reset my ie8 settings, no change. Also on another note, i cannot remove the s/mime using add/remove programs.

Ok Button Doesn't Work When Hitting Enter

When navigating within various dialogue boxes of a menu, i'm unable to use the enter key to have it move to next box or screen. In other operating versions of windows, i was able to use the enter key rather than using the mouse and manually clicking on the ok button. For the most part it does work in windows 7, but when getting into the "inners" of the os, it doesn't not work. Is there a setting or something i can use to have the enter key functional on any ok buttons?

Dvd Drive Disappeared

My dvd drive disappeared even though i stopped making virtual dvd drives for iso images.

Sorry for bad spelling. When i want to make a partition rpc server is unavailable. Dvd drive is not in device manager. The hardware and devices troubleshooter thinks i have no dvd drive. I have no iso imaging programs now but i need one.

Printer Icon Disappeared

I recently did a reinstall of windows 7 (64-bit) to deal with printer installation problems. In general, the result has been satisfactory. A canon usb printer installed automatically to a usb port. A hp laserjet 5 has been installed as the default printer on lpt1. However, the icon for the laserjet, which appeared when i installed the printer, has now disappeared; the printer still functions as the default, but i can't directly examine its property sheet.

Opening the property sheet for the canon printer and looking at the allocation of ports, i can see that lpt1 is assigned both to the laserjet and to a "quicken pdf printer. " I haven't installed any pdf printer hardware, although i have installed the quicken program. Possibly, the solution is to shift the laserjet to lpt2, but i can't see how to do that.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Files And Folders Disappeared

I was organizing a file that i had hundreds of mods for a game. Everything was organized and orderly. All zipped and placed. So now i clicked on the file that had the version number 1. 4 i had all the files under. I selected properties, hidden, read only was already checked and then i selected apply ( i thought that this would show all hidden files). Then i clicked apply.

The computer went through all of those files as the green line smoothly showed the progress of the computer and they all disappeared. Gone just like that. I tried to go back , i tried to restore previous version of the file, but there are no more mod files they are all gone. Please tell me that they were not deleted. They were not in the recycle bin. In in some archive and can be restored?

Folder And Content Disappeared

I went to print out some pictures this morning to find that the entire group of subfolders and their content are gone. (Think of it as a tree starting with /public pictures/2010/feb/dateofpix/allpix.jpg - the dateofpix/allpix.jpg are gone leaving just the 2010/feb folders (empty).

I looked at the history of the feb folder and it says it was last modified last night at 9:50pm. We certainly didn't modify it since we were snoozing away at that time. I was able to restore back to 2/25 but that wasn't the last day we added photos to this folder (sat the 27th was and we've printed some of those so i know they were there).

What could cause folders & contents to disappear and how can i prevent this from happening in the future? I don't want to lose pictures. We do backups (bi-weekly and monthly) but not daily.

Hdmi Sound Out Disappeared

I'm running windows 7 ultimate on an hp 8710p laptop, and i have it connected via an hdmi cable to my hdtv. I was running vista before with no problems, and after i upgraded to windows 7, it still worked perfectly. I used to have to open the sound window from control panel after i plugged the laptop into the tv, i had two playback devices: speakers and digital audio (s/pdif), you would have to right click on digital audio and set it to the default device and then i would have sound on the tv, and off course i would have to change the setting again after i unplugged it from the tv.
Yesterday after i plugged it back into the tv, there was no sound. Steps i have taken to troubleshoot:

1. Plugged other hdmi devices into the tv to see if they got sound.
2. Plugged the laptop into other hdmi tv's to see if i could get sound there.
3. Downloaded the drivers from the hp website for both the graphics card and the sound card, and reinstalled them.
4. Ran a windows update to see if there isn't maybe a patch.
5. Ran the playing audio troubleshooter
6. Checked in device manager that all devices are working properly and not disabled
7. Updated the drivers in device manager (they just said that the latest drivers are installed)
8. Checked services to ensure that all services that has anything to do with audio or video are running
9. Checked the volume mixer to ensure that the volume is turned up and not muted
10. Uninstalled the graphics and sound cards, rebooted, reinstalled them, rebooted, etc.
11. Rebooted
12. Trust me, i've tried it all.

I see hundreds of postings everywhere, mostly dealing with guys that have upgraded from vista to windows 7, and then losing sound. Mine was working on windows 7, so i know that there is some hidden setting somewhere that we are not aware of, i've already spent a couple of hours reading hundreds of posts everywhere, but the troubleshooting they talk about, i've tried it all, but to no avail.
