Power Options Page Doesn't Display "dim The Display" Option


I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and the power options page doesn't display a "dim the display" option, nor do the keyboard commands to dim the display do anything. I am running a lenovo g530 machine and there does not seem to be driver support for windows 7 on their support page. However i downloaded the mobile intel 45 chipset graphics driver for windows 7 and i downloaded the newest bios update; nether seemed to solve the problem.

Power Option Does Not Display

I recently brought a new laptop which runs windows 7 home premium. I use it either at work, university or at home (where i attach an external monitor) and so often need to change the power settings depending on whether i am running on battery or not etc. However recently when i either click the power icon in the status bar (bottom right) or through the control pannel nothing happens, not even an error message. This happens regardless of whether its power by mains or battery, has the external monitor attached or not, or is connected to the internet or not. The icon in the control pannel has also changed to a file image instead of the power options icon. How do i fix this?

Display Power Settings Are Not Saved

Power settings won't stay as saved - display setting always reverts to 3 minutes after re-boot. Maybe i don't yet understand how the new windows 7 works, but i can't seem to set my power settings and have them stay there. I've set them to turn off the display after 15 minutes and put the computer to sleep at 30 minutes. But when i re-boot the machine, the display setting always reverts from 15 minutes to 3 minutes. Is there any way to save these settings and have them stay as saved?

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7 home 64 bit a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers not wait for the consumer to purchase windows 7 and have to deal with all the problems!

Display Pictures

This pc is built from a components and running genuine (licensed) windows 7 (32bit) home premium. When browsing craig’s list classified ads, this computer would show the attached pictures on any ad, simply be hovering the cursor over the subject line and without opening the text. However, this feature abruptly quit and the pictures (jpeg) would not be displayed without clicking and opening the classified ad. I had assumed this was one of the windows gadgets that had by default been activated when installing windows 7 and then inadvertently turned off. Any suggestions how to turn this feature back on?

Display Distorted

Running w7 home prem; 32-bit ie8 computer; laptop. Dual core. 3gb memory. This laptop was upgraded doing an in-place upgrade from vista to w7. Since the upgrade to w7 occasionally my desktop becomes distorted. The desktop looks like vertical bars. I can correct the appearance by right click desktop. Select properties. Refresh. I have checked for a newer graphic card driver update. I have the latest driver installed. Any ideas why i am experiencing this issue since upgrading to w7? And what i can do to resolve.

Display Brightness

I cannot for the life of me figure out why my computer won't let me change the brightness of the display. When i go to the battery options as i used to with vista, there is no possible location to change the brightness (no there is no slider displayed below the power options). When i try function+f7/f8 nothing happens (in fact, i don't think my function key works at all since i updated to windows 7). A possible reason for this is that, when i updated my graphics driver in vista it crashed my computer.

Only after downloading windows 7 could i use my laptop again. Unfortunately my computer automatically updated to the new geforce graphics update after downloading windows 7 and i had to roll the computer back to get it to work again. Since then i have turned updates to manual, and have not updated the nvidia driver. Even if this is the problem, there's no reason i shouldn't be able to access my display brightness right? I can barely see the screen in a sunny room.

Problem With Display

So i just have gotten a new computer with windows 7. When i connect my pc to my samsung monitor (hdmi cable), everything is blurry, too sharp, and doesnt look good. The text is the most blurry thing. Also the edges of icons and some pictures are not smooth.

So i contacted samsung and they said "the problem is that windows 7 is having issues with certain video cards. " I tried using the same monitor with a computer that has windows vista on it and everything looks fine. They said contact microsoft and they may be able to help.

Cannot Display Webpage

It will not let me go to pogo.com. I have been visiting this site on my computer with no issue until tonight. The site is not down, my internet connection is fine. I have no virus or spyware (i did a scan). I can go to any other site i pull up. How do i fix and why is it doing it in the first place? This happens with other sites i frequently go to from time to time and after a few days it will go away. It only happens when i use internet explorer and if it keeps up i am dumping this stupid browser because it is the only browser to have ever given me trouble.

Display Is Out Of Range

I was messing around with my screen resolution because there was this site that was supposedly best viewed in a higher resolution! So i changed the resolution to a higher one and pressed execute or confirm, (i dont know the exact word in english) and the screen says "out of range" som i press escape and im back with my old resolution, but the drop down list is still set on the higher resolution, so i change it back to 1440x900 and instead of pressing confirm/execute before i press ok, i press ok by accident, and the resolution is still confirmed/executed in that higher res, so the screen goes black with a message "out of range" and now there is nothing i can do, i have tried to restart the computer and screen etc, but im lost, i cant get to my desktop!

Display Drivers Stopped

Display drivers have stopped and have been recovered.nvidia driver kernal 191. 07 has stopped and have been recovered. My display drivers keep stopping then recover whilst playing call of duty modern warfare 2 and also while i play combat arms. I have recently purchased a brand new pc that runs an i7-920 6gb ram a bfg gtx 285. I have tried every version of drivers from nvidia with no solution. My previous machine ran xp and combat arms ran fine on this. My friend is also having problems with call of duty and he has an ati card so don't think its related to drivers. He also runs windows 7.

Display Driver Crashes

I use a 6 months old xps dell 8000 with windows 7, 64 bit, with an nvidia geoforce gt220 video card. 1 or 2 times a day the monitor goes black and then restores with a message "display driver has stopped responding and recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver ?" This continues to happen for no reason, even though dell has replaced my video card 3 times. With dell customer service help i uninstalled and reinstalled the current drivers from the dell site previous drivers downloaded from the  nvidia site caused other problems which have been resolved. I would appreciate any guidance in resolving this issue which neither dell or nvidia want to claim as their fault.

Secondary Display Just Flashes

Whenever i try to enable a secondary display on my laptop it detects the monitor but then all it does is flash the desktop and then the screen goes black, like it's stuck in this auto-detect loop or something. I have tried multiple monitors and get the same thing. What's even funnier is that it worked the very first time i tried and since then has not worked once. I have updated to the latest drivers available on nvidia's website and windows 7 is up to date as well. I have tried using the external monitor as the primary screen, tried duplicating the desktop and just extending. I'm doing all this using the win+p key method.

My setup is a dell vostro 1720 laptop with an nvidia 9600m gs graphics chip and am running windows 7 x64.

It is center of desk top can not be moved or closed. It appears weather i'm on line or not. With i'm active on the computer or not. The button for more information is active, but it suggests that i have an internet connection problem. I do not. It maybe slow but i'm here.

On shut down it is one of the first items to disappear off the desktop. I can not identify anything on task manger that is running to cause this. I have run my mcafee full virus scan, no problems, i have run full windows defender, no problem. Cleared all my cookies and browser histories. Reinstalled firefox.

Removed halo and real-player. Dell chat had me do scan in safe mode that was clean. In safe mode i also did a system check it was good. The only glich i have found is an error code 0x0c00c03 while trying to download and install another ms system check program from a trouble shooter. I have rebooted numerous times. It always come back. I'm not a computer whiz, please help in simple directions.

How To Change Display Language?

I buy a desktop and it supposed to be installed with windows 7 home premium with swedish language. But it's not. I talked to the reseller and they will send me a new dvd with windows 7 in swedish, so fare so good but:-

Do i really have to reinstall the whole computer?
Is there not a way to just change the display language?

I have already started to use the computer and it will take 14 days until i get my dvd. Isn't there any work around to just upgrade windows 7 or just change language in an easy way. It doesn't matter if the operating system is in english but i need the displays to show text in swedish.

Display Language Selection

I have searched on the web for an answer to the following question, and have found lots of info about "illegal" keys. I asked the ms help telephone centre, but alas, i don't really think the lady understood the question. And i asked a ms employee at a recent presentation, and am not really confident of the answer he gave.

So i'll ask here!

I have been given a boxed copy of windows 7 professional, unopened, for the french win 7 pro.

Now, i know that the key will be version specific, i.e. "Pro, " but is it also language specific? In other words, if i use a win7 pro (english) installation dvd will the "french" key work to give me an english install?

I really don't want to open the box to try this and therefore "waste" a key; if it won't work i'll try to find someone who can use the french version.

Menu Display Problem

At some point shortly after upgrading vista business 64-bit to windows 7 pro 64-bit top level menus from all programs started displaying by expanding to the left. For example, in a program with a "file" item on its main window bar, when i click on it, the "file" menu expands to the left so that the menu's display pane appears with the extreme right edge under the mouse pointer over the "file" entry on the main menu bar.

If the menu has a sub-menu expansion indicated by a right-facing arrow, when i click such an item, it expands to the left of the parent menu box.

Similarly right-click context menus (e.g. Desktop display properties menu) also expand leftward leaving the mouse pointer at the extreme right edge of the menu display pane.

Note that "custom" menus generated by program specific buttons implemented in a window within the main program window (usually appearing below the main menu bar) do not suffer from this problem.

It seems to me that there must be some obscure registry setting that was 'clobbered' by some installation (office 2010 beta?, Vcredist? . ?) That i have been unable to locate and fix. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Win7 Will Not Display Desktop

Windows 7 boots to the password screen. I enter my password and it passes to a black screen with only the cursor visible. The desktop never loads.

I restored to a previously known good configuration. No dice. Still hangs.

I booted from the cd. I repaired the startup. No dice.

I does the same thing when booting in safe mode.

Ram problem? I took out all of the ram and rebooted replacing the ram on stick at a time. No dice.

I worked fine yesterday. Today i rebooted because my system was slow. This then occurred.

Display, Task Manager

Okay, so i somehow changed the look of my task manager and now it doesn't help me with anything. It was the regular task manager when i bought it then one day it was just different. The only thing that it shows when i go to task manager after (ctrl, alt, del) is (headings at the top) user, id, status, client name, session. Thats all it shows as headings at the top. Then at the bottom it has two buttons, disconnect, log-off. When i try and right click to get more options it only shows disconnect or log-off as options.

Dimming Display Issues

Ever since i installed windows 7 my laptop display continually dims until it reaches the lowest setting within a few minutes even while plugged in to ac power. I have

- Changed the power plan
- Created a custom power plan
- Made changes to the advanced options within power plan
- Download updated graphic drivers
- Calibrated the color

Nothing seems to work. I have a toshiba p100 satellite laptop. Currently i have to leave the control panel open to the display tab so that i can continually reset the screen brightness.

Out Of Range Display Issue

I recently installed windows 7 ultimate 32-bit on my acer aspire t180. The install appears to be fine but when booting windows 7 in normal mode my monitor blacks out and says "out of range". I can boot in safe mode and have set the screen resolution to 800 x 600, max for the monitor is higher than that. My graphics card is directx 9. 0 compatible.

My best guess is that my graphics card isn't quite good enough or doesn't have an up to date driver, but i'm not sure how to fix it - most of the control panel options that look helpful aren't available in safe mode.

Wmp12 Display Japanese

Is there any way to display japanese lyrics in wmp12? I can see the lyrics just fine on wmp11 inside my xp mode. Unfortunately, not all my songs launch in the wmp11 inside xp mode (otherwise i would just use wmp11). I see weird characters when i try to listen to the song in wmp12 (not the blank boxes).

If there is a place to download the japanese version of wmp12, that would work too, as long as the menus are not weird characters ( i can read japanese). I have w7 64 pro in english.

How To Display Multiple Tabs?

When i'm in ie and open a webpage, it loads to the first tab on the left side right below the tool bar. Id i go to my favorites and open another website, the first tab is now the second website instead of just creating another tab so i can switch back and forth between the two (or more) websites. The only way i found to get more than one tab is to do a ctl+t and then i get a "what do you want to do next?" Box. Is there a setting that i can change so that the second, or more, websites automatically open into a separate tab?
