Re: IE11 Unable To Play Youtube Videos

You are lucky.  The last two times I have called them, they couldn’t help me at all.  As a matter of fact, they messed up my email account on my laptop, and I had to have somebody completely reinstall and re set it up.  Pam.

Hi All,
 
I don't know what the hell happened but, all the MS tech did was log on to the computer, & Youtube started working correctly.  As far as the missing wireless icon issue goes, he fixed that , but in fixing that a soundcard volume problem was corrected as well!  Well, you can bet your, A**, the registry got backed up right then!  LOL  LOL 
Take care.

Not that anyone ever listens to me, but many of these random/unexplainable issues can often be resolved by backing up and restoring the registry.  This is much more reliable, less extreme, and less prone to errors than using System Restore.  I would say that probably about 95% of unexplainable issues in Windows which are not cause by malware or viruses, are most likely cause by minor corruption or problems in the registry.

Some people are afraid of system restores.  This is not the system reset feature which will reset Windows to the factory state, if you tell it to do that.  This is system restore and it is intended to be used to solve problems such as restoring your computer to the state it was in before a bad program installation, the effects of which can't be undone by uninstalling.  It also is very useful for solvingt problems whose solution is not known or might be much more cumbersome or difficult to achieve without using system Restore.  Everyone should have some means of reverting their computer or computers.  If not system restore, something else.

Would repairing IE be a better option than setting it back to its defaults, if repairing is possible?  If repairing is possible, how would I do that?  Thank you very much for all your help.

Maybe. I just did not want to suggest that one for now.
So...
Tools>Internet Options>Advance tab.
Press the "Reset..." button and also check the "Delete personal
settings" check box.
Note this will also disable your add-on. So, for example, if you have a
download manager you need to go to add-on manager to re-enable it. It
won't effect Flash, however.
Happy trying...

How to integrate voxin into ubuntu?

Edmond Nazarian <gocloud84@...>
 

Hey Folks,
After some reading/writing about Linux here, I decided to give it another try after 3 years. I want to have Eloquence on Orca, before and after installing, and when using, without having to run Sudo or something else.
So question short: Is there a way to integrate Voxin into Linux, specially Ubuntu? Is this actually possible? Can I edit some files, copy some files/folders somewhere to do this? I really do not want a complete instruction but something for getting started.
Last does not least, is there a Linux distribution with Eloquence already added to it? I have no problem paying for it.
Thanks.

If you are sure it's an HP brand, you can use their automated tool:

There you find the "Identify Now" button. Note that you may need to
install a small software.
Also, usually I find the model in msinfo32 with almost accurate result.

If you are sure it's an HP brand, you can use their automated tool:

There you find the "Identify Now" button. Note that you may need to
install a small software.
Also, usually I find the model in msinfo32 with almost accurate result.

Hi all,

Well, John, I guess I'm a creature of habit. I come from the time when books were on records and if you needed to change a setting on a talking book machine, you had to stop it playing before you could change anything. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

If you are sure it's an HP brand, you can use their automated tool:

There you find the "Identify Now" button. Note that you may need to
install a small software.
Also, usually I find the model in msinfo32 with almost accurate result.

Re: installing linux as a second OS, help please

I suspect the manual is hard to find because of the age of that model. However, according to this online copy of the manual,
http://www.manualshelf.com/manual/hp/compaq-615-notebook-pc-energy-star/multiboot-windows-vista-and-windows-xp.html
Dynamically choosing a boot device using the F9 promptTo dynamically choose a boot device for the current start up sequence, follow these steps:1.Open the Select Boot Device menu by turning on or restarting the computer, and then pressing f9 while the "F9 = Boot device menu" message is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen.2.Use the arrow keys to select a boot device, and then press enter.Your preferences go into effect immediately.

If you are sure it's an HP brand, you can use their automated tool:
http://support.hp.com
There you find the "Identify Now" button. Note that you may need to
install a small software.
Also, usually I find the model in msinfo32 with almost accurate result.

For the record, the spelling is Compaq, not Compact. And a model number
which is close may or may not use the same key sequence to access the menu,
but it cannot be assumed.

I would, but because of the google link, won't. But type into google, how
to access the bootable devices menu on HP compact 657, and, the very first
result that will come up is what I posted. although I thought it said s?
LOL, must reread it. That's why I'm thinking the instructions should be
close enough, because of the model.

The link you posted does not directly refer to that model, but you can
try the instructions anyway. If that is in fact the correct information,
accessing the bootable devices menu does not seem to be as straight
forward as it is on newer machines. It says to press Escape immediately
after turning on the machine to display the startup menu and then F9 to
access the list of bootable devices. At that point, you should be able
to use the Arrow keys followed by Enter to select a device.

Also I believe SIRI have a male voice since iOS 9.

These are the two names I hear discussed.

Are there no male choices in these two platforms?

You know, I thought the exact, same thing about the jobs, but automation is something that I don't think we can stop or make slower.

That will put more people out of work. So, what are all these people who are getting put out of work through different jobs that are getting mechanized supposed to do with their lives? I’ve been wondering that. And the rest of the jobs that still exist are outsourced to China or thereabouts. Pam.

A self-driving truck safely delivered a cargo of goods in Euyrope (The Netherlands, I think) about a week ago, driving 700 miles, totally unattended, from departure to arrival. The thinking is that we will soon see convoys of self-driving trucks, probably a lot sooner than self-driving cars become the norm.
