Hot Link Buttons Dont Work


When i load some web sites the hot link buttons aren't working. The problem just appeared. I don't remember any changes to the system. Running windows vista) i am talking about buttons that you click on on a web site that call up pop-up windows. This one site i frequent has buttons that i have always clicked on to call up results pop-ups from bridge games.

All of a sudden when the site opens the outlines of the buttons are there but no filler and no functionality. What has changed and how can i fix it?  I've tried changing cookie settings, and tried to find answers in various help areas. I know the buttons work on the site because i have checked on other computers.

Speakers Dont Work

Bought windows 7 yesterday (experienced with xp)

Yesterday (16th january) i tried to get sound into my headset, so i figured i tried to do as i always did with xp.

Start - control panel - hardware and sounds - manage audio devices - properties (for main speakers)

At action: i choses inactivate, at that moment the speakers icon disappeared and i lost my sound in my speakers ever since. I cant find any sorts of configuration/controls over speakers. However before i did this my speakers worked perfectly normally. Now i have to use my headset to even be able to hear anything.

Please help me, how do i get my speakers icon back at sounds configuration at the control panel
Im not very good at fixing computer problems so please respond in a way a "dummy" would understand.

Logitech Quickcam Express Webcams Dont Work

I have an older logitech quickcam express v-uh9 that doesn't seem to get detected by windows 7 (64bit). Old drivers don't work under compatibility mode and also auto detect doesn't seem to find a driver for it either. Software seems to install properly but then just keeps saying to plug in my webcam (i've tried every usb port i have on my computer). I have another webcam that has the same problems (from retail plus).
 
I'm guessing that his might be a trend with older web-cams?

Travelite Wireless Usb Headset Buttons Don't Work

I'm having issues with the volume +/- buttons on an asus hs-1000w travelite wireless usb headset. The power and link buttons work, and the headset functions properly, but these two buttons don't. As far as i am aware, there's no reason why; i just turned them on one day and they didn't work - and with the headset being wireless, this is a big issue.

I also tried a friend's wired logitech usb headset on my computer, and the volume buttons on that did nothing either. So i'm thinking that either it's a driver issue (which, i might add, would be funny because the asus headset is "driver free", and there are no updates for the "driver" - believe me, i've researched), or an os issue.

(I have win7 home x64, by the way. ) The volume +/- buttons worked for a couple weeks after i received this headset, which was gifted as brand new and not refurbished. I don't get any errors, the device manager recognizes the wireless usb audio "driver". And something is still up. Any help or guidance at all would be greatly appreciated. I have had this problem, asked around, and done the research literally for months, but to no avail. There isn't even any support for this product on the asus website - it's like it doesn't even exist to them.

Ie8 Link With Target Not Work

I have windows 7 running ie8. After i installed some software, some links in web pages are no longer working. I notice that those "a"links have a "target" with something like "_blank", which would open a new ie window or a tab. Basically, the phenomenon is, when i click that link, a new tab is created with caption "connecting to ". The tab is always empty, and the address box shows the url of the original page.

However, for those links which open the web page in the same ie window, seem working fine. I would like to repair the ie8 or windows 7. But i don’t know how. It’s greatly appreciated if someone can provide some solution.

Hot Swap Hard Drive Problem

With windows xp i was able to hot-swap my secondary hard drive, with windows 7 the only way i can is if i restart after i swap hard drives. Is there any way to hot-swap without having to restart? On windows xp i was able to hot-swap my hard drives. I could go to the taskbar and safely remove the hard drives like with usb flash drives. And then i could swap to another hard drive and windows would recognize it. But with windows 7 if i swap hard drive it wont recognize it until i reboot. Is there any way to hot swap with windows 7?

Dual Boot Drives Or Hot Swap

I have been using w7 64bit for a few months now and it is awesome, i love it. However my issue is this, i work with video and i have found my expensive editing program and the more expensive io box are both incompatible. The manufacturer has now announced "end of life" on the program and offered a fantastic deal on a new upgrade 80% off. Sounds pretty good, except the necessary io box is only sold at full price $3k.

So i'm thinking, can i use my old xp pro 32 bit drive in a multi-boot set up or is it better to go with a hot swap set up? I would have to leave the external capture and render hd's alone and just change the "c" drive which would only contain windows and the editing program.

Programs Dont Run In Win 7

I am having a problem with windows-7. I have done a upgrade from vista and found that was a mistake. I did a reinstall as a dual boot because i still needed vista to run the programs that would not run in windows-7. I found that windows-7 is a bigger problem than vista. I had to do a download to run my hp printer that i bought in january of this year. I still cant run my hp photosmart 812 camera. The software won't load. I can't get microsoft age of empires-2 to run with good graphic.

I have about four more that will only run while i am in vista. I have written to hp and they have no plans to update their software. I ran the windows-7 adviser and my computer passed. If i had it to do over, i would not have gone to windows-7 from vista. I have not found any reason to change to windows-7. I am going back to vista and just write this off as a bad experience.

Taskbar Buttons Not Combined

Windows 7 (64 bit) system, i have "always combine taskbar buttons" selected, but some programs show up more than once. For instance i have a program pinned to the taskbar but when i run it another button shows up for the program at the right end of the taskbar. I thought that shouldn't happen; certainly it doesn't happen for the windows apps i have on the taskbar (like ie or media player) - they only show up once whether the program is running or not. (I have a pic but didn't know how to post it; anyway i think it should be clear from description. )

How To Re-assign Function Of Mouse Buttons?

I have an intellimouse optical usb and ps/2 compatible. When on windows xp i was able to re-assign any mouse button to one of many functions, e.g cut, copy, paste, etc, etc. This was a standard feature of the mouse software, which was intellipoint 4 (i think), and i found it very useful. Using the same mouse on my new pc running windows 7, i cannot find this utility. Can anyone out there advise on how i can get this feature on windows 7 ?

I used it on a second mouse with only the three buttons active and one each assigned to cut, copy and paste. This avoids having to use two fingers for , and , which i find awkward and slow. Just hitting one button is much quicker when you use these three edits very frequently, as i do. Many thanks to anyone who can help.

Keyboard Sound Buttons Stopped Working

I have a dell inspiron 1545, (o. S. 7). On 8/14/10 i downloaded the 14 updates from windows as recommended and everything that could go wrong did! So, i was forced to put the laptop back to the way i received it brand new. ( Sorry i don't know what thats called) anyway, now the laptop works great except the mute, turn up and turn down buttons on the keyboard. They do not work at all and i have to use the volume icon to turn up or down. I would really appreciate anyone that has the solution. I have looked everywhere and i'm ready to throw the laptop out with the cat.

Monitor Cuts Off Important Information And Buttons

I have a 46" hdtv and use it as a monitor for my new windows/hp machine. My suggested resolution nis 1920 x 1080 and i would like to stay with it. The only problem is that there is about 3/4" missing from the display all around the perimeter. This renders crucial display features unreadable. Items such as the three window controlling functions in the top right, the title bar, and the back button are nearly off the screen. Is there any way to put a border around the display area in such a way that i will be able to see "a full screen?"

Usb Headset Volume Buttons Stopped Working

I have the asus travelite hs-1000w headset. It's compatible with all versions of windows. I had this particular headset for about two weeks before the volume buttons on it stopped changing the volume.

It's plug-n-play "driver free", so there are no driver updates for it - i've checked. It's always set as the default sound device to be used when it's plugged in. I don't have any intelli- products (intellitype, intellipoint; someone suggested there might be a conflict).

It worked with no problems whatsoever until one day i rebooted my laptop and only the volume buttons stopped their function for an unknown reason. It's not the usb port; changing ports doesn't make any difference. It's not the headset; the buttons work when tested with other computers, both pc and mac. Nothing was installed during the session before reboot, not even any windows updates.

Yet the volume buttons still don't move the volume slider. I've tried everything i can think of, including uninstalling the driver/rebooting/plugging the headset back in and letting it do its business. My last resorts are to do a repair install of win7, and if that doesn't work, reinstall win7 entirely.

But, as one may guess, i don't want to have to basically reinstall everything (200+ gigs) on my computer just to get one thing working again that, at this rate and based on past events with it, can't be guaranteed to stay working again for much longer after that.

What really bugs me is i seem to be the only one on the planet who is having this sort of issue.
How do i get these buttons to function again if it's something on my computer that's affecting them?

Since i loaded windows 7 professional, my screen will randomly show up with blurred icons, buttons, etc. Almost like they are being pixelated. Sometimes i can move the cursor over the icon, and it will then display correctly. The other day my entire desktop was blurred. Tried loading the latest video driver, but it says it is the latest.

D Link Wireless Adapter Compatibility

Trying to install dlink  dwl-g122 wireless network adapter onto new asus desktop. Error message saying 2 entrypoint files not found. It has been working fine on a 32 bit windows xp for a couple of years. Dlink tech people say that it is not compatible, no new drivers to update;  but windows 7 compatibility center says it is. My geek squad  people say that it might be the 32/64 bit issue. Also using the dlink di 624 wireless router. Also a 2nd computer in the house working fine with existing router.

Tp-link Tl-wn951n 64-bit Issue

I have just purchased the tp-link wn951n wireless pci card to upgrade from my old adapter and have encountered a problem when trying to install the driver. I have been to the tp-link website and tried all of the available drivers that they have listed for windows 7, i have also tried installing an atheros driver as when i have been searching through google i found that it uses an atheros chipset.

The drivers that i have tried appear to install although i get a warning when first installing that it might not be compatible and the driver says that it is installed and working but i cannot see any wireless networks.

When i click on the diagnose button it goes through it's process and then tells me that there is a driver problem still. In the device manager it says that the device is working properly and in the network connections section if i double click on the icon it reports that it is connected at 412. 3gbps which is confusing in itself but when i click on the details tab to see the state of the connection both of the property and value tabs are blank also i have had no error codes that may help in the diagnosis so sorry about that.

Ie Keyboard Shortcut For Open Link In New Tab

The help file for internet explorer states that the keyboard shortcut for "open links in a new tab in the background" is "ctrl+click", yet last i looked "click" is not a key, it is a mouse activity. How does a non-mouse user (blind, physical disability) perform "ctrl+click", or rather, how does a non-mouse user open links in a new tab in the background?

D-link Wbr-2310 Wireless Will Not Connect

I have a new sony vaio with windows 7 installed. It will not connect with my home network. I can connect wireless to other networks (i've tried at wifi hotspots in coffee shops and at my work). I have checked that my router (d-link model wbr-2310) is compatible with windows 7 on the companies website and it says it is already compatible. I have updated both the atheros wireless network adapter and the ms virtual wifi miniport adapter. Another help forum suggested disabling the ms virtual miniport adapter, which i tried, and this does not work.

Error 734 - The Ppp Link Terminated

I am trying to connect to the net with my cellphone via usb with dun in win 7. I have used 3 different phones sony ericsson, samsung, htc and used 3 different sim cards from different operators on each of these phones. I have followed each of the operators config instructions to the t. But with all of them i keep getting the same error 734: ppp link terminated. Going through the forums, this seems to be a widespread problem with many users and although the ms tech kb has resolution for this error for xp, w23k etc, there seems to be n resolution for it in win7 so far. Most questions for win7 seem to have reached a dead end with every mvp support. Obviously it is something to do with win7 - a bug maybe? Pl ms can we have you look seriously into this issue and resolve it asap?

D-link Wua-1340 Network Adaptor Compatibility

Is d-link's wua-1340 network adaptor truly compatible with windows 7 even though d-link does not provide a windows 7 specific driver for this model? i.e. , Is there a driver embedded in windows 7 for this adaptor? I have purchased a 32 bit version of windows 7 professional. I am currently running xp pro and using a d-link wireless usb network adaptor (model no. Wua-1340).

There is no d-link windows 7 driver for this adaptor. However, according to microsoft's compatibility site, the product is "compatible" with "no action required". I simply want to know whetger or not the adaptor will function properly under windows 7 and whether or not i can use the xp driver for it, the vista driver for it, or alternatively, if there is a driver for the product embedded in the windows 7 product.
