Microsoft’s “reimagining” of its Windows 8 operating system and company brand may also stretch to its own line of hardware keyboards too. Czech Republic-based WinMag claims it has received images of a Wedge Mobile keyboard, complete with the redesigned Windows logo. the Wedge Mobile keyboard looks to be a small keyboard designed for mobile use and appears to include some type of cover.
The Wedge keyboard will be “introduced very soon” according to the site, and will be sold together with Windows 8. Microsoft previously revealed that its hardware partners will start to use the new Windows logo on PCs and phones later this year, with the company’s Surface device adopting it too. We’ve reached out to Microsoft for comment on this apparent new range of keyboards and we’ll update you accordingly.
So you installed your brand new HP printer, printed a test page and everything works the way you want to. you turned your computer off just before you leave work. The next morning you turn your computer on and to your surprise your computer does not boot up. Lights and fans are on but there is no Windows logo showing up. what happened. Did someone mess with your PC during the night?
Well the last thing you did was installing the printer. you unplug the USB printer cable and try to start you PC again. this time your PC boots up fine. you are thinking that this printer has mess with your PC and you are ready to uninstall the printer software and take back this printer. Wait
Here is a solution that I have found. Some of the motherboards have the USB Legacy Support enabled and that prevents the PC from booting up. you need to go in the BIOS and disable USB Legacy Support.
To do that you restart your PC and you check at the bottom of the first screen for the key that will allow you to press and enter the SETUP (BIOS). once there, look around for USB Legacy Support, by using the UP and DOWN, ENTER and ESC keys to navigate. once you disable the USB Legacy Support press F10 to save and exit. done.
The same problem will also happen with other USB devices like USB hard drives etc. Just follow the same steps.
Not long ago many people didn’t pay attention to their screensaver until it actually turns on. now people are using screensavers as photo albums or pictures within a frame. gone are the days of the default screensavers that come with Windows. they have now been replaced by very high quality and unique screensavers that would make a great addition to any room.
Follow these steps to change your Windows Vista screen saver:
o right click on your desk top
o click on screen saver
o a dialog box screen saver settings pops up.
o click on that arrow to see a list of screen savers: 3D, Aurora, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos (our favorite), Ribbons, Windows Energy and Windows Logo.
o next to the pull down arrow is a box called settings. Not all screen savers can be set. say you like Aurora. If you click on settings, Windows will say, this screen saver has no options that you can set. only a few screen savers can be set like 3D text.
o if you choose 3D text and click on settings, another dialog box appears with a slew of options: resolution, size, rotation speed, rotation type (none, spin, sea saw, wobble, tumble). You also get to choose surface style (texture, reflection or custom).
o when you click on any of these options, Windows gives you the chance to preview it.
Note: If you downloaded a Vista screensaver from the internet then follow the instructions that accompany the screensaver to install it. or you can save the .scr file in the C:WindowsSystem32 directory. Once you save the Vista screensaver to that directory it will be available from the standard list of screensavers.
To use your own photo or picture as screen saver:
o go to desk top and right click
o select personalize and then click on screen saver
o dialog box screen saver settings appears
o click on pull down arrow and select photos
o if you saved your pictures in my Pictures, click on settings and there will be a section in the box where it says browse
o when you’ve chosen the photo, click save, and then click OK.
To create your own slideshow for a screensaver:
o go to Windows Photo Gallery
o click the pictures you want to display in the slide show. If you have more than one picture, hold down the CRTL key and click on those photos you want to include
o click the slide show button located at the bottom of the photo gallery.
o if you don’t choose any picture, Windows Vista will play all the photos filed in the picture gallery once you click on slide show.
