Changing Start Menu To Show All Programs By Default

How do i change the start menu to show all programs by default? I'm trying to figure out how to get the all programs to load by default in the start menu (rather than showing recent programs, which we want disabled). Is there a registry key that can be changed or created to accomplish this?

Monitor Shuts Off

My computer monitor keeps shutting off on me. I have a dell inspiron b130 (i know it is kinda old) but i don't think its a hardware issue. It has started happening since i installed windows 7. At first i thought it was because my original product key didn't work, but i did the automated phone activation, and validated on the website, but it still shuts off. If i don't use my computer for awhile, it may stay on for a good 20 mins or so, but once it shuts off once, the time it stays on gets less and less. But, i just close the lid and open it back up and it works again. Any ideas as to what is going on?!?

The system reboots automatically and tells me windows shut down unexpectedly. I just upgraded to windows 7 yesterday. I was always able to backup with windows vista home premium 64-bit. I have tried to format the hard drive but the computer does the same thing, that is shuts down, and i get the same message. When i ran windows advisor it told me this drive was compatible with windows 7. What is my solution?

Computer Randomly Shuts Down

I checked the "similar questions" options and didn't none of the solutions seemed to apply to me, so here goes!:So i've had this computer for a while now (i would say about two years). It's a home-built made by a computer-savvy friend of mine and it's been fantastic. It still has high marks in everything but my hard drive. I'm some-what of a gamer, and it's been running games incredibly well. So i decided to move to taiwan to teach english. I really didn't want to miss out on pc gaming for a year(+), so i brought this sucker with me.

I get to my apartment - no 3-prong outlets!  Get a cheap 2-to-3 prong adapter, buy a fancy new screen, and voila, computer seems to be working!  It made the flight with me! (Yes, i had to check it, i had the airline people put tons of "fragile" stickers on it, but that was probably mistake number one, even though i had the original box, and even though i still tried to keep it from getting damaged by putting in other clothes to hopefully brace the shocks. Nyway, so i'm listening to some itunes, for about an hour and then suddenly. Shut down. Oh well, i'll just turn it on.

Itunes. Shut down. I plug in my first-video-gen ipod to update new songs and what not? Shut down. I also brought my laptop here with me so after several more instances of random shut down, i focus on my laptop, and say goodbye until i can bring it to a repair shop or something in the states or have someone with computer knowledge take a look at it. My laptop dies (it was old and had some liquid damage that i guess finally killed it). So now i have to use my desktop. Hey, it's been working ok, even updating my ipod with no problems!

Oh wait, unless i'm playing music at the same time as updating it. So i just don't do that anymore! My computer-savvy friend recommends that i get a diagnostic program to see why i'm having problems. I get this thing called sisoftware sandra lite 2010 from cnet after reading their enthusiastic review. I start up the program and it starts checking. Something. I can't remember, had to do with running calculations and the computer shuts off.

Almost immediately after the test starts. I download and install starcraft 2. Successfully!  "Wow it stayed on long enough to complete it without shutting down! Maybe it's better!"Try to play starcraft 2 - shuts down. Damn! What is wrong with my computer! I see that the little icon at the bottom right has a red x circle on it. I click on it for the first time. "Troubleshoot a problem with your computer. "Oh, might that fix the problem?"Your computer might be encountering a memory problem. " Hmm, hopefully because that's easy to fix, right? Just buy new memory!So i let the windows memory diagnostic test do it's thing.

It restarts the computer and "oo, that's a new thing" the test starts. 1%. 2%. Shut down!So. Is it my memory? If it was my memory wouldn't the test finish?Is it my cpu?  There is a big fan covering the cpu and it moved slightly after the flight.could that have affected the processor?Is it the fact that it's not technically grounded even though it's plugged into a seemingly ok power strip?Is it something else? The motherboard? The fact that it's 110v here and not the us standard 120v?I've also noticed that i can browse the internet ok, but if i try to full-screen a video, it shuts down! 

But if i don't full screen the video, there are no problems. It's also really hot and humid here, and i don't have air conditioning yet. Is it overheating? This case is a coolermaster cosmos, it's supposed to be pretty good at keeping everything cool what is going on!?

Display Shuts Off When Pc Unplugged

I upgraded my asus 1005pe netbook from windows 7 starter to windows 7 enterprise. Everything worked fine. Did the online updates and now when i unplug the netbook, the display goes black. The computer does not shut down, the display just goes away and comes back when the unit is plugged back in. If i boot the computer in "safe" mode there is not a problem. The display stays on whether it is plugged in or not. Windows is the only program currently loaded on this machine. I have another asus 1005hab netbook with windows 7 enterprise loaded that this does not happen on.

Monitor Shuts Off But Computer Remains On

Not sure if this is under the right topic, sorry. Well, the monitor will just shut off after booting up the pc. When i bootup in safe mode, the problem still occurs, although it took a longer time for it to turn off. Everything is still running though. This just started happening today. Right now, it seems to be okay, though it took a while before i was able to start it up normally. Several times before, when i tried to boot up, it refused to turn on. The graphics card fan would be on at its highest speed but won't become quiet again, as its supposed to. I had to turn off the main power at the back and wait awhile before i could start it up.

Could it be graphics related? Right now, using speedfan it says my gpu is at 57 c, which is hotter than normal. Also my cpu is at 40c, when its usually at 30 - 35. Usually my com is extremely cool, though i don't use liquid cooling and the room isn't air conditioned. So i don't understand why its suddenly like this.

Or is it a virus? Problem started when my sis tried to change her wallpaper. She said she just clicked on the photo and then the monitor shut off. Virus? Or coincidence? Need your help on this asap :) im using intel core i7 920, overclocked to 3. 2ghz. Asus rampage ii extreme mobo. Expertvision 8800gt sonic.coolermaster storm scout chassis. Windows 7 ultimate.

Floppy Drive Shuts Down Computer

I own a 2005 dell 8400 xp, it did not come with a floppy drive. When i purchased my designer i embroidery unit it required floppies. I ordered a small floppy drive and plugged it in a usb port. For the past couple of years this had worked fine. Now when i plug it in the computer acts as though something is attacking it and shuts down. I use frontier "peace of mind" for my troubleshooting and what not and they told me that when windows did an upgrade it must have down something to no longer recognize the floppy drive and suggested i call dell. Since my computer is no longer under warranted they wouldn't hep me. What can i do?

Computer Shuts Down After Awake From Sleep Mode

I just built a new computer with an asus p7p55d premium motherboard. When i try to wake the computer from sleep mode (i've tried both s1 and s3 sleep modes in the bios), the fans start to run and the motherboard leds turn on, but then the computer just powers off. I then have to turn the computer back on, wait for the bios to load, and then i get the "windows was shut down unexpectedly. Start windows normally or safe mode?" Prompt.

I've tried changing all of the settings i can think of in the windows 7 power options, as well as in the asus bios menu. A friend of mine said it might have to do with acpi settings, but it doesn't seem to change anything when i enable or disable them in the bios.could it possibly be a physical hardware problem? Does anyone have any ideas?

Screen Saver Does Not Work - Display Never Shuts Off

The screen saver never works and the display never shuts off. How do i fix this? I have no idea how to make the screen saver work or get the display to automatically shut off. The preview for the screen saver doesn't even work. Everything i've read said this is typically because of a wireless mouse, but i do not have a wireless mouse or anything else attached to my laptop.

No Memory In Volume D: When Trying To Install

. I have a gateway. I don't know much about computers, but it's a quad core, has windows 7, 1tb hard drive, 8 gigs of ram. Something says "dx4300 - 01h" if that is relevant. Earlier today, i tried to install softimage modtool for practice in the 3d industry, so i went to  #this link and downloaded it# . So it was all going good, but once it actually started to install , this happened. http://i757. Photobucket.com/albums/xx215/mrfluffbutt/other/untitled.png

That's a link to a screen cap i took of the error, as well. So i had my friend try and help. I have disabled my dvd/cd drive, named. Hl- dt - st bddvd ch10f ata device. I have installed vcredist_x86, (c+ 2008, c+ something or other) and it installed fine (the c+ update). But trying to instal x64 (2005), it also says my "volume d" is full, even with the dvd drive disabled.
 
How can i over come this one tiny error message, and still get softimage? Is it something with gateway? My certain dvd drive? I have not done anything to my computer lately, other than install photoshop.

Volume From One Program Not Working

I think i accidentally disabled the volume from one program because whenever i open up the program, it's no longer showing up under the "volume mixer" as an application. Every other program i open has it's volume working just fine and shows up under the volume mixer as always.

My question is how do i get the volume working from that one program again? I was fiddling around with some volume controls when my headphones weren't working (i finally realized i had them plugged into the wrong slot) and can't remember how i may have disabled the volume from the program. I've been searching all over the place for a solution, tried troubleshooting, and i can't find this issue (or a solution) listed anywhere.

Lost Volume Indicator

I recently upgraded from windows 7 home premium to windows 7 professional. Before the upgrade, i would see a volume indicator box that would pop-up in the middle of my screen whenever i would adjust the volume via the keyboard. However, after the upgrade, i've noticed that the volume indicator box no longer pops up when i adjust the volume. The sound on laptop works fine, but i was wondering how i could get this to reappear. I have a e525 model emachine.

Video Volume Problem

I just bought a new laptop and after playing with it for a day, i decided to watch the "getting started with windows 7" videos that came with my new laptop. This is my first new computer in 8 years and i figured something may have changed since the first windows xp came out. Well, even though the audio on my new computer worked great on my music and the games i have run, i can only hear the audio on these darn video instructions from microsoft if i hold my laptop up to my ear.

I have the volume on my computer maxed. When i am playing a gome or listening to music on my new laptop, my sister yells at me from the other room to please turn it down and i only have the volume turned up to mid range. What can i do to get this fixed so i can learn about my new computer?

Magicjack - The Wrong Volume Is In The Drive

When i try to open a page from windows mail, i get a box with the above caption. It reads" the wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert volume magicjack into drive g. "Has three choices to select, retry, cancel, continue. If you click on any one of the choices several times you then continue on to the page you have selected in the beginning.

How do i get rid of this box that is requiring this other step tp open pages? I have looked on line and found many others with the same problem with other installations so i know it is not the magicjack causing the problem. However, there seems that no one out there has a solution either.

Wmp12 Volume Leveling Not Working

I have "collections" or "mixes" i've downloaded with different bit rates and the higher ones like 320 are much louder and annoying during playback. I've followed the instructions here about setting the volume leveling and not only is it a time consuming process, it doesn't seem to work.

I heard that burning then ripping files back to the pc with the volume leveling applied is supposed to work but the problem is that doing so with 15+ files from either different artists or by one artist from different cd's messes everything up by putting everything into various artists for the artist and the original cd name instead of the xxxxmix heading and is a laborious process to reassemble.

I've considered using another media player, but i also have a zune and don't want to have conflicts with a non ms media player in the mix. Not that having wmp doesn't have problems!

Does anyone know what the problem is or can suggest a better way of doing this?

Low Volume After Win7 Upgrade

All audio (media player, itunes, system sounds, cds, internet) is much lower after i upgraded to win7. Sound card is a creative sound blaster audigy 2; p/o dell xps desktop motherboard (can not remove sound card)

Was running win7rc without issues. Volume was loud enough to require turning sound down to resonable level. After doing clean install of win7, prior to any downloading of any updates, sound level was about 75% of level of win7rc install. After 1st reboot, audio level was reduced again to about 50%.

I have tried the following:

Re-installed win7 from win7rc (clean install), w/o any updates
Re-installed win7 from win 7rc with all current "recommended" ms updates
Un-installed sound card driver; rebooted; let win7 re-load driver
Un-installed driver and re-installed driver downloaded from creative site

Have set all volume levels to max for consistency (for each app used)

Driver loaded for win 7 rc is same (same release/version) as loaded for win7

Win 7 Games

In all of the games that came with windows 7, the cards randomly flash next to my cursor (the one nearest as well as the cards adjacent). Also, and more importantly, my menus all flicker in transparency(but still work) until i open an option and try to change it, then when i click "ok" or "cancel" the window does nothing (appears to freeze) and requires me to "x" out of it, so i cant change any of the options such as difficulty or appearance. Is there an update/download/fix for this?

Win 7 And Games

Having just spent loads of money on a new computer with windows 7 on it i have now found that most of my games (even ones with games for windows on the box) will not install or let you get so far into the game, then stick it to you with "error shutting down" some examples of the games are, panzers cold war (game for windows ha ha) anno 1701, cossacks 2 battle for europe, imperial glory, faces of war, and numerous other games, as i only really have a computer to play games, and only have a basic knowledge of computers, i was wondering if i was missing something or was going to spend the rest of my days pulling out what little hair i have left because i bought a programme that doesn't want to play my games with me, please tell me know i didn't waste my money (ps this comp is a vast upgrade on the one i used to play the games on in terms of graphics cards ect so cant see the problem there).

Have To Open Games Twice

Why do i have to open my games twice? I'm having trouble with my games. I have to open the file two times to play the game. When i open the first time (double click or enter), the mouse icon indicates that it is opening the game (it turns to be a spinning blue circle), but then nothing happens, and the cpu usage gadget is rising to about 60 %, usually it's just running at 2-25%. At the second time i open, the game is opened, but the game is so lagged (i wonder if it's because the cpu usage is becoming so high).

So is there anyone can help me? At least tell me what is this problem i am facing. Those games are fable : the lost chapter, gta iii and need for speed underground 2.

Installation Failed - The Wrong Volume Is In The Drive

Windows xp to windows 7 installation failed. "The wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert volume grmculxfrer_en_dvd". Trying to install a legal copy of windows 7 (not downloaded either, actually purchased disk). The disk is an upgrade disk and i am upgrading from windows xp (32-bit) to windows 7 (64-bit).

When i attempt to install it, when it gets to "expanding windows files" i get the error message "the wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert volume grmculxfrer_en_dvd into drive d:" and the installation fails regardless of whether or not i click "cancel" "ignore" or "continue". What is wrong?

I ran a system upgrade check before and everything seems to be ready for the 64-bit.

This question has been asked before but no solution proposed on this forum that i found. Everything is is so slow too! Just to get to the initial installation screen takes 20 minutes and when it begins installation it stalls at 0% for 30 minutes before it throws me the error. How can this be so hard to upgrade?

Delete File In System Volume Information

I had a hardware failure last week, which resulted in a new installation of windows 7. However i'm left with a 220gb file in system volume information on a storage drive.

I'd like to delete it, but i don't have permission, nor do i seem to be able to give myself permission to do it.

It's likely the result of a previous backup - however i have subsequently changed my backup procedure and i'm absolutely sure that this does not contain any data that i would like preserved.

Given that it's such a large file, i want it gone.
