  1. I am trying to boot into the bios on my vaio laptop but it doesn't show the post screen so I can't figure out what button to push. Help appreciated!
  2. When I try to login to my router at it accepts my username and password but just displays the message " ( is managing this device " with a blank white screen, nothing else is visible. Is there anyway to fix this? I can't access my router control panel because of this.
  3. Is it possible to set a color to show up every time I load Microsoft Word? Is this possible in the new Office 2013? This is for my company colors. For example, I have this color set and it shows up in Recent colors, but that clears out when I restart the PC. Is there a way to make it permanently show up on the pallete rather than having to retype in the color code for it every time.
  4. I was at Bestbuy and shopping and a rep told me that on Mac I need more ram than on Windows. How does RAM work differently on Mac than it does on Windows? I'm not sure I get what is going on.
  5. Good question jshepp! There's a few things to consider that could be causing lag (latency and/or packetloss) on your network. The first thing I always look at is the Internet Service Provider (ISP) speed. Are you on Comcast or Verizon? Or do you have DSL / Satellite / Radio internet? Whichever company is providing you internet service should have you signed up for a specific speed. GD wrote a really informative article regarding testing your internet connection speed here: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/geek-stuff/understand-your-interent-connection-test-its-speed/. Make sure before doing a
  6. Build a gaming PC. It's a little bit more expensive, but it's worth it. Here's what you buy: $450 - Motherboard and CPU combo. I7-2600K (k edition) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.989278 $330 - Radeon 7950 Video Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127667 $50 - Case. Can also re-use an old one to save money. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129042 $114 - 16GB of DDR3 Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231568 $90 - 750watt power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=
  7. Sowsoft has an enterprise program called Network Password Manager that does exactly this. However it isn't free. You're looking at $249 for 1 server/5 users. Have you tried KeepassX? Or Keepass2? I think they may be able to do this with a bit of tweaking. Another option is to use a portable password manager like Keepass and store it on an encrypted drive that only you have the encryption key to. Truecrypt would work for this.
  8. This could end up being complicated process. You may have to work with building management to install a new door code system. Then again, it could be as simple as picking up a device for about $80. You might be able to get by using a Bluetooth phone gateway like this one:http://www.amazon.com/Xtreme-Technologies-BT-Bluetooth-Gateway/dp/B00135XU7Q Of course there may be a WiFi alternative or something else. If I understand correctly you're just trying to take a signal coming into your landline and convert it to a digital signal going to your iPhone? In that case another good option is getti
  9. I like this solution, it's about the only way to do it that doesn't involve messing with individual computers.
  10. Hi Michelle, The User Manual for the Motorola SBG900 can be found here. I looked through it appears that the only logs it is capable of recording are those of firewall events. Those are explained on page 33, but I don't think those are necessarily the droids you are looking for. Sorry! I looked at options for adding open source firmware to the router and enhancing it's features, but it is no dice. The router is just too old. You'll have to upgrade! The other option for logging sites is to install Windows Family Safety on individual computers in the network. It is available as part of the W
  11. You could try changing your password to something really simple before deleting.
  12. The new Office 2013 pure white background is too white. It burns my eyes. I have to turn my screen brightness down just to keep from getting a headache. Any fix for this or do we have to wait for retail?
  13. What web browser are you using? It sounds like a browser issue. You probably have some setting that is enabled that automatically renames files to the current time.
  14. I hear that one easy way to automatically delete your Facebook photo is to upload pornography as your main profile pic. Not the most ethical way to do it, but Facebook will delete your account for you. Just make sure to clear out all of your personal information manually before you do it.
  15. When I clicked the install button on the website to install Office 2013 it downloaded an installer. When I run the installer it gives me an error that says: We found a problem! We're sorry, Office (32-bit) couldn't be installed because you have these 64-bit Office programs installed on your computer: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 Microsoft Office 32-bit Components 2010 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office programs don't get a long, so you can only have one type installed at a time. Please try installing the 64-bit version of Office instead, or uninstall your other 64-bit Office
  16. Yes you can! There's 2 ways to go about it. The first way is Amazon's lending library. Login to your Amazon account and then you can "lend" out purchased books to another person. The borrowing period lasts 2 weeks, and during this time you will be unable to read the book until your friend returns it. The other way is the way Amazon doesn't like. Connect your Kindle to the computer via USB and extract the book files and save them to the computer. You may have to use a program like Calibre to convert them to epub so that they are not locked to your specific Kindle.
  17. You're in luck. Files deleted are still recoverable unless you pressed Shift+Delete (the permanent delete shortcut) to remove them. The easiest way is to download the Microsoft Fix It tool, which automates the process of recovery. If you want to manually recover the emails launch the Recover Deleted Emails tool from the Tools menu.
  18. Unblocking publishers in Windows is strange, it goes through IE: 1.Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, and then click Internet options. 2.On the Content tab, in the Certificates section, click Certificates. 3.Select the Untrusted Publisher tab. 4.Select the Publisher you wish to unblock and click the Remove button. Now if the above doesn’t help try restting your internet explorer browser, if that is the browser with which you are having trouble accessing shockwave games. Note: Resetting Internet Explorer's settings is not reversible. After a reset, all previous settings are l
  19. The apps I want to install are not available on the Amazon Market and so I need to sideload them. I enabled sideloading from the settings menu, and then I downloaded the app APK files onto my Kindle. How do I run APK files that I downloaded onto my Kindle?
  20. Reputation points on this site are the little points next to your name. Currently it shows that you have 56, and 7 badges. Having a certain amount of reputation points allows you to do useful things, like edit posts, award points to others, or post more links. Reputation points are also known as karma.

  21. I like this idea, but there is a lot involved with making things look good. It takes years of practice and hundreds of bananas eaten.
