- May 29, 2007Alex, All,
Yes, I know about the ALT+ENTER and the full screen properties on the
By "not run" I should have translated. ;-) The program runs, but you
cannot read it.
This must be something with the driver. I have tried Googling the
monitor, graphics card, and driver, but do not get helpful results.
A co-worker who has XP and an LCD and was on vacation last week, tried
the apps on his system and it worked.
We do not support client's hardware, but this client does not have their
own IT department, so I was trying to figure it out as a courtesy. I was
also hoping the answer would help my father's issue.
I do not trust having my Dad change drivers or other settings. He "had"
to get a new computer because the old one was "broken". He gave it to
me. I took out the new RAM chip he got, and it started right up (It was
the wrong kind of RAM.). He did not take my advice on optimizing his old
PC (Spybot S&D, dumping all the expensive utilities & bloatware, etc.).
I did what I told him to do and it runs great. I think he just wanted an
excuse to get a new computer. I'll just have to fiddle with it next time
we make it back for a visit. ;-)
My Dad & sister could not figure out the LCD monitor. One of my
brother's went by and hit the power button, and it started working. Of
course, they tried that already. ;-)
It would be a lot easier if I did not live almost 600 miles away. I
tried getting a remote software setup, but that's another story. Ah, the
joys of trying to be a good son. ;-)
