How To Setup Email?


How do you set up email using windows 7? I just bought a laptop with windows 7. I was using outlook express on a computer with xp previously without any problems. With the new laptop, i was using the comcast website for email. I frequently send data files as attachments for my work. When i sent it through the comcast email it when through okay on my end but the formatting was messed up on the other end. These are small files, approximately 84 kb. I have also found out that i do not have a default email sent up. Before i screw something up, i thought i would see what suggestions you have for which email service to use and how to set up the email default.

Headset Setup With Win 7

I recently purchased windows 7 and installed it onto my pc (before i had xp). My pc is capable of running it (3. 4ghz, 6 gig 6, ati 5770). However, i cannot get my headset to work with windows 7. The headset has an orange and a pink jack. I have plugged these jacks into the back of my computer in the corresponding jacks several times but windows has never detected anything. I have tried the "add a device" feature and windows has come up with nothing. Additionally on the audio device manager it says that speakers, headsets and microphones are all not plugged in, even though they are. Anyone know how to configure these with windows 7?

Outlook Setup Problem

I am setting up a new pc with windows 7. I set up the outlook 2007 and as part of the set-up entered my charter.net email address as this is my only email address.

Cannot Setup Wmc To Run Tv

I have a new computer running w7 64-bit, with a hauppage hvr-1850 card. I also have digital cable with a motorola dct700 box running standard digital cable from my local cable service provider. I am trying to set-up tv on my computer using windows media centre. However, i can only get as far as the screen that deals with testing the remotes channel changing ability. It works fine on testing - so i check the appropriate box saying that "the set-box changed the channel correctly. "  I am then taken to a second small window which says"enter a channel number" with a checkbox "ok". This takes me back to the first window again.

The problem is that i get into a never-ending loop between these two windows. The next button at the bottom of the first window won't work to confirm satisfactory channel changing and i am only permitted to go back or cancel - neither of which i want to do. Please can you help as this is driving me nuts. S an alternative, i have tried to set up wintv7 and am having no more success, hence my use of wmc as this is supposed to be easier process.

How To Un-install Raid Setup?

How do i uninstall this raid setup? Intel hd security with win 7?On new computer, i was faced with essentially the following question: "do you want to install intel security to protect your hard drives?" How could i say no? There was no explanation but security is good, right? Intel (and amd) is good, right? Little did i know that security meant raid! Now i have two, 1tb hard drives in a raid. Another way of saying it is that i only have 1tb of storage that now appears on my computer. Is this accurate and more importantly is how do i uninstall this raid setup?

Using 2 Mice With Dual Monitors Setup

Is it possible to use 2 mice when dual monitors is setup? 2 mice with 2 cursors*premise:my partner and i have a home theater pc in the making with 2 monitors set up. We use one monitor for basic computing -web browsing, word processing, etc. The other we use for media and video streaming.

Problem: we both want to utilize the varied functions at the same, but constantly run into "sharing the mouse". We've tried setting up hot button keys on our iphones with mixed results. Solution:i think the problem would be solved simply by being able to install two mice on our system, each having its own cursor, but i cannot find a "software" solution. Question:is there anything i can do to windows 7 that will allow me to achieve two separate mice, each with its own cursor?

Outlook Setup Not Receiving All Of Emails

I just set up my computer yesterday, and coordinated outlook to have my work email. I am positive i set up the actual email address and ppop server correctly because it mirrors my old computer, which still receives every email without issue. Although i've received dozens of emails to my blackberry and gmail (where i also have my work emails forwarded), only a handful of work emails have actually arrived in outlook. Anyone have a quick fix? Is this a common problem?

Fax And Scan Full Setup

Windows 7 fax and scan. I am still having trouble with windows fax and scan. When i had windows xp i used windows fax console as the fax software. I simply scanned the fax message into a word document and used the fax wizard to send off the fax. I wish to do a similar thing in windows 7 fax and scan but i always end up with attachments which i do not understand.

Is this attachment sequence the new thing - i am certainly not used to it? I am also unable to send any fax though the fax settings are correct. When i try to send a fax reference is made to a fax server. I have set up the program to be used with an external fax modem - a fax server should not be involved. The fax printer present in the printers folder in windows xp is missing in windows 7.
Do i need this ?

Unable To Enter Modem Setup

I use d-link g604t adsl-modem/wifi router.

Since i've been using windows 7 ultimate 64bits, i no longer can access the router's setup page, no matter what browser i try (ie 8. 0. 7600, firefox 3. 6. 3, chrome 4. 1. 249, opera 10. 51), with the msg:

401 unauthorized

Authorization required for the url '/'.

I'm forced to reboot from winxp's partition to access, using ie (none of the other browsers did). Running winxp i'm able to get into the modem's setup, like i always did.

(After a firmware update, for using adsl+ [annex_a] 8mbps, the modem's ip was factory changed to 192. 168. 254. 254; the one i had no problems, using winxp)

Whats up?

Lan Or Internet Setup Issues

I recently had to reinstall my os. I now have the basic xp professional with no sps. My problem is this: internet explorer will connect only if i power cycle my modem and even then it won't always do it. Even when it does it will only stay connected for 10-30 seconds then i'll lose connection. When that happens, my isp can still see my modem so i know the problem is between my computer and my modem. The only firewall i have is whatever the defaults are on xp professional. I am using a usb cable between the modem and computer because it won't pick up the modem through ethernet.

I know it is physically set up right unless it matters which usb you plug it into(it's currently plugged into the one right next to the ethernet port, i'm guessing that it has something to do with how my computer is communicating with my modem. Also, "obtain ip/dns automatically" are both selected. Basically, everything is at default.

Microsoft Office 2007 Error During Setup

I got the error in the title of this but no other errors. None of the kb articles was relevant.

I fixed it by removing anything related to the microsoft office document converter that allowed me to open docx and xlsx file.

I uninstalled the microsoft office document converter but that failed so i had to use the windows installer clean-up utility to remove it.

I deleted everything from the program file/microsoft office/12. 0 folder. In my case there was some visual studio stuff there which i left in place.

I also deleted the keys in hkey_classes_rootinstallerproducts which ended in 01fec (for example 000021091a0090400000000000f01fec) which were related to office 2007.

Unable To Enter Setup For Raid 1 Array

I am upgrading to a clean install of windows 7 ultimate 64bit from windows vista ultimate 64bit. I had the same hardware configuration with vista, just formatted the drives so i have a clean install. I had the drives set up in a raid 1 configuration in vista and want to to do the same in win 7.
 
I have the hard drives plugged into the sata 1 and 2 slots and the cd/dvd plugged into the sata 3 slot, just like i did in the vista install.
 
To install the new os, i set my drive configuration in the bios to raid. Using the intel raid manager i created an array called "programs" that used the full available space of both 500 gb drives. The array shows that it is normal and bootable after creating.
 
After creating the array, i return to the bios and check the boot priority. I have the cd/dvd set to #1 and the hdd array set to #2. I do not have a floppy so that is disabled in the legacy drive section so there is no third boot option.
 
The first attempt at installation, i put the win 7 dvd in at this point, saved the bios changes and exited. The install dvd boots and after going through the initial file load gives an error that an external storage device has been disconnected or is not functioning and i need to restart. I do not have any external devices connected at this time. In the vista setup i did have and esata drive connected through the port on the back of the pc. No esata connections have ever been used on the two internal connections.
 
I powered down the computer and then re-powered. It goes through the normal started, shows the healthy raid array in the intel raid screen, says that no jmicron drives detected and then goes to the ide detect screen. The timeout shows 35 then changes to boot ready as the dvd starts to spin. After 35 seconds elapse with no change, it gives an error that says "reboot and select proper boot devices or insert boot media in selected device and hit a key"
 
I remove the dvd, replace it in the drive and hit a key and get the same error.
 
I tried the process with the vista dvd and get the same result.
 
Next i deleted the raid array and remade it and tried again with the same result.
 
Next i set the cd/dvd as the only boot device with the same result. I also tried hitting f8 during start-up to select the boot device and chose the cd/dvd and got the same result.
 
Finally, i deleted the raid array, changed the drive configuration to ide and tried the install on a single drive. That worked with no problems. The os installed and runs perfectly but i really want the os to be installed on a raid 1 array for redundancy.
 
I appreciate any help you can offer to resolve the issue and get the os installed on a raid 1 array.

Hardware Raid 1 Setup After Win 7 Installed

Can hardware raid-1 be set up after windows 7 is installed? Our company recently purchased a new development machine that with dual sata drives that were supposed to be configured for raid-1 mirroring, but were instead set as ide. Embarrassingly, we didn't notice until after we had installed and updated all of our development tools, etc.

I have since set up the second drive as a mirrored volume using the disk management utility, which will be fine if it is our only sensible option, but if there is a straightforward way we can set up hardware raid 1, that would be preferable. In my search for an answer, i found a post by another user and what looks like an excellent solution. But when i try to use the repair option to add the drivers for my motherboard (intel dp35dp), the iastor drivers fail to install and windows won't boot until i revert my bios setting to "configure sata as raid" back to ". As ide".
