  • Sky, this isn't really a "fix", but have you considered covering the sticky cover with Saran wrap or equivalent.  Since the cover is sticky, you probably won't need any adhesive, and I think a...
  • Windows 7 & 8 will only install on an NTFS formatted partition.  I would suggest using an MBR partition (rather than GPT).  Make sure that you make a primary partition and mark it as Active.  I...
  • Assuming that you have an empty partition or drive, I know that you can create a dual-boot system installing Win7 followed by Win8 (install newer OS after older OS).  I don't know if the MS boot...
  • Unless you've partitioned the drive and are storing your document in a different location than the Windows default (My Documents, My Pictures, My Videos, etc.), just copy over all of your document...
  • Your comments make sense and reminded me that many graphics chipsets have a "control panel" which allows you to change the graphic settings.  If the graphic settings are set to something other than...
  • While I don't do this myself (multiple monitor profiles/luminance values), here's how I think people are doing it.  Most monitors have some sort of scale on the brightness & contrast controls...
  • What port did you use to connect the projector?  Was it the VGA port or HDMI?  If it was VGA, I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the D/A converter (converts digital video signal into an...
  • Bob, you are correct in everything you say.  The only way that a defective monitor calibrator could affect the print is if it erroneous adjustments were made to the image based on the monitor...
  • Unfortunately, it sounds like your i1D2 is on it's way out.  A number of people have had this issue over a period of time.  Most colorimeters use color filters to get the correct colorimetric...
  • About 6 months ago I took an old Linksys E1000 wireless router and added it to my home network.  The main wireless router (WD N750) resides in a bedroom at one end of the house.  The signal was...
  • I don't know why Vernon wants XP Mode, however I have XP installed under Virtual Box (same idea, different program).  The reason I use it is because I have some older Kodak dyesub printers that...
  • As Jim mentioned, if the unallocated space is before the Windows partition, you'll need some third party tools to "join" the two partitions.  A free Windows tool is Partition Wizard.  I would...

  • Windows Vista and newer (Win7 & 8) allow the user to easily change the product key.  Here's how to do it: 1) Click the Start button, right-click on Computer, and select Properties.  A dialog window...
  • The Samsung 840 EVO and Pro series are generally considered as two of the best overall performers.  I just ordered the 840 Evo (500GB) for my laptop.  I have the older Samsung 830 SSD (128GB) in my...
  • When you copy a file from a Mac to a storage medium and view it on a Windows computer, there is a second, much smaller, file with the same name. The second, smaller file is a resource fork. This is...
  • After increasing the RAM allocation in Photoshop to 90%, the run time reduced to 39 seconds.
  • Dave, the silver paste is thermal compound which improves the thermal conductivity between the heatsink (the thing with the pipes) and the CPU itself.  I would recommend that you wipe the old...
  • I agree that the biggest difference between a TN and IPS panel is the viewing angle.  With a TN display, as long as you maintain a consistent viewing angle, it can be used quite nicely for...
  • Carl, you have to load the action into Photoshop and then run it.  After you run (play) it, it asks you to time it from when you click the Continue button until it says "STOP" on the screen.
