Close Lid Problem In Dell Studio 1555 Laptop

In power settings on my dell studio 1555 laptop, i changed close lid action to "do nothing" the laptop still stopped display when i tried to close the lid and use an external monitor only. I found this support forum about windows vista: http://social. Msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en/tabletandtouch/thread/06d8f624-bdd3-4d45-a62a-60c9bcb81f57

Within the thread, i found a workaround which neutralizes the menacing acpi lid driver. So microsoft, please fix this awful acpi lid driver that still screws up laptops that are connected to external monitors! This problem is at least 3 and a half years old.

Ie8 Slow To Close

I run vista home premium (32) on an hp pavillion dv6809wm laptop, 3 gig ram. I use ms internet explorer 8 and it runs as well for me as for anyone, most of the time- speed ok, page load ok- not too many issues. But it routinely does something that drives me fugbuck. When i go to close it, it disappears from the screen and from the taskbar, but the shortcut on my dt stays highlighted foranywhere from 30 seconds to >2minutes, during which time i cannot do anything else.

I can't even open task manager to see if something is eating resources. I regularly clean out temp files and other garbage; i am savvy enough to do all the basic things that are usually suggested first. I also do not enable any add-ons except adobe pdf, do not use yahell toolbar or any other tool bars. Doesn't do it all the time, but at least one time in three. Anyone heard of this one?

Error Message - Program Is Not Responding Close Down Anyway

Error message "program is not responding close down anyway" while using music programs, playing game and during system shutdown. Audio glitch with freezing - please helpthe other day my 64-bit windows 7 started messing up with audio. The moment i try to play a song on itunes it freezes and stays on the 0:00 time mark. I have to ctrl+alt+delete it to get it to close (it registers as "not responding").

Same thing happens with youtube, and any game i try to play. Even when i shut off my computer it has the "program is not responding close down anyway?" Prompt for the little audio noise when its turning off/logging off. When it has to play a sound for a usb being plugged in, it just plays really low static. Unfortunately, i am an idiot and don't have a full backup, only an online backup of about 2 gigs and i haven't updated in a while. I have a physical external hard drive now and backed it up, but obviously if it now working now, that wont do much.

How To Find And Close A Program Using Mirror Drivers?

Aero troubleshooting told me that "a running program uses a mirror driver (a type of display driver) which is not compatible with the aero desktop experience. To allow aero effects to be displayed, close any programs that use mirror drivers, such as windows remote assistance and windows live mesh. "

Aero effects were working fine earlier in the day. I had to get help from hp for some printer problems and i allowed them access to my computer and they removed and then reinstalled the printer files and that works fine now but the aero effects do not.

I would appreciate any help.

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?

Import Pictures And Video Box Will Not Close

About a month ago i started having a random issue with the "import pictures and video" box. The computer completes the import of pictures and video from my digital camera, a noise tells me it is done, but the box remains on the screen. I click on "cancel" and then "yes" when it asks if i want to cancel importing. Yet the box still remains. It remains even if i disconnect the cord to my camera. I have to end the program using the task manager. I am doing nothing differently to have caused this problem. I import pictures about 4 times a week. Any ideas?

Laptop Boots Up On Its Own

I've recently bought a dell inspiron laptop with windows 7. I noticed that the battery seemed to be discharging over night so i checked event viewer and it seems that the laptop is booting itself up for between 10 and 20 minutes most (but not all) nights. I confirmed this one night by leaving it next to my bed!It came on at about 1215 am. I have checked all the scheduled tasks and none are set to "wake the computer to run this task". I have mcafee security centre running so i don't think i have a virus or a trojan or anything like that. Any idea what is causing this and how i can stop it, short of removing the battery!

Laptop Was Stolen

1 month old laptop with windows 7 was stolen, it was a gateway laptop. I have filed a police report and proof of purchase with gateway. However, i do not know my windows 7 key of the top of my head because it was on the bottom of the laptop, the original gateway box does not have this information either and i contacted gateway and they said they cannot give me the key because "dispatching of windows 7 os is done by mentor media. I recommend you contact microsoft".

The reason im asking is, i am going to build a new computer and i thought instead of paying for windows 7 again why not use the copy i already payed for when i bought the laptop? Is this possible? I put my gateway "recovery dvd's" in my current desktop and i got to the screen where it asks language and the notice where it says "if you press continue everything will be restored to original factory settings", if i put those recovery dvd's in the computer i build will they install windows 7 on my new computer? Is there somehow a way to transfer over the key to the new machine?

In addition i have a broken dell laptop out of warranty, too expensive to fix, which has a windows vista key on the bottom, can i make use of that somehow?

Laptop Will Not Power Up

Have been given a toshiba protege r400 mod no:ppr40a-01000l to look at for a friend who is very ill and the machine just will not switch on. Have tested the adaptor and battery voltage and there is plenty. Now i don't have much experience with laptops as such and so cannot rule the psu as the culprit. When plugged in the blue power light is on and the small yellow battery indicator flickers at random speeds - but quite fast. Now i have the maintenance manual for it and i can probably get the lcd mask off to look at the power witch itself. But before i do i would like some opinions on the most likely cause and would prefer to avoid this if at all possible.

Laptop Keyboard Not Working

Ihad the rc version of windows working fine on my asus aspire 5670 laptop for several months. Then about 2 weeks age, i installed a couple of windows updates and the laptop keyboard stopped working. No red bangs in deice manager, updating driver had no effect. Keyboard works fine in bios as well as in safe mode. Restore points had no effect. Flashed the bios, still nothing. Since windows 7 was released last week, i snagged a copy and did a clean install (formatting the system drive in advance) assuming that this would fix the problem - it did not! I had to use the on screen keyboard to enter the product key ;).

Desktop Pc Thinks It Is A Laptop

I built two identical desktop pcs and with windows 7 home premium. Both are plugged into the same ups and i have not installed the ups software in either one. One of the two keeps shutting down and when i turn it back on i get a message that it shutdown because the battery was low. Also this one has a battery indicator in the tray at the bottom of the screen. The other machine does not have the shutdown issue or the battery symbol in the tray. I have tried various settings in the power management but cannot convince this thing it is a desktop and has no battery.

Laptop Randomly Hibernates

i'm new to this site and have been experiencing my laptop hibernating randomly the past few days while i am using it. I could be working on anything in my computer, like browsing the web, checking email, etc. , And bam! Hibernates. I know it's not a virus because i have mcafee and windows defender both active and they scan my laptop bi-weekly.

I've asked a few friends at school, and they've given a few possible suggestions; the memory that is being used, or the time i'm using it, (after startup), but i've came to the assumption that it could be both. By both, i mean that once the processor passes a certain memory usage, and a certain time after then, is where the problem could jump from. Since i've thought of that solution, i've tried using less programs together, (e.g. Only the browser or only windows live mail), and as i've been using this solution, it has rarely hibernated w/o notice.
