  1. Hi, I have started a wordpress page where I intend to let visitors ask questions or leave comments.


    I did a comment / reply to a post I did for testing.


    wordpress makes visitors register with name, email, website so I did that.


    I have since removed that entire post but when I go to other posts and click READ MORE,


    it displays my name , email, and website.


    I can't seem to make it stop doing that.


    any help will be greatly appreciated


    thanks in advance

  2. I have an xp pro computer that runs fine via dsl.


    I gave it to my brother in law and he hooked it up but can't get on internet. limited or no connectivity.


    The only difference is that his old computer hooked up through roadrunner on a cable modem.


    Is there a reason concerning the difference between dsl and cable modems that would cause this problem?


    I did all the ipconfig release, renew etc, to no avail.


    Please help.


    thanks in advance

  3. HI TCH ers,


    I am wondering what would be the best way to allow visitors to a webpage to be able to print out a coupon. I would have, i.e., a picture of a product with a sale price on it and allow them to click "print coupon" button which would send the coupon to their printer.


    Any help would be welcome.





  4. Guys & Gals,


    I have a pc that was heavily clogged with lint etc. I cleaned it all out and booted it up fine, then noticed the powersupply fan was barely turning.

    I ordered another one from ebay.

    It came, booted up, but the fan barely turned.

    I notified the seller and they sent me another.

    It booted up and the fan barely turned.

    3 power supply units, same thing, very slow turning fan.


    Is there a chance that the mother board got too hot and burned something out so that it is not faulty power supply units?


    Thanks for any help / suggestions.

  5. HI Bill,


    No not just TB. I even tried to install Pegasus, same thing. Plus when I try to uninstall from add/remove, (win 7 ), That won't work either. I downloaded the same one you linked to but it will unpack, you hit the install button, then it, almost immediately goes to an empty white window with only the finish button to click.

    When I do I can find thunderbird under %appdata% but there's nothing there and it won't run.


    That's what makes me wonder about the installer, but I haven't had any luck getting a new installer. Some folks are claiming that 4.5 installer installation has been messing up other files and programs and I can't seem to get a download for ver. 5 installer. I am working on an HP pavilion so there is no windows 7 disk.

  6. Installation will begin as normal but quickly pops up a window with a "finish" launch mozilla thunderbird now (window), yet the installation never completes and the program won't run.

    Happens with any program I try to install. windows installer was on manual, so I clicked "start" but that didn't help.

  7. Hi Guys,


    My Dell laptop won't boot anymore, and when I start it from the XP CD I can't run chkdsk, fixboot or any of the other recovery tools, as it won't recognise the C: drive.


    When I run the Dell utilities and do a full test of the HDD, it finds about 10 dodgy blocks, but otherwise it seems OK, so my question is:- How can I get the system to recognise the existence of the HDD, and therefore at least let me try some of the fix-it tools?


    If you can get me out of this hole, my granddaughters will love you forever !




    what do you mean " it finds about 10 dodgy blocks, but otherwise it seems OK"

  8. Hi TCH'ers,


    I could use some input.


    I installed a new motherboard and processor, ( 3rd this week ), and I re-partition, format and install windows xp.


    After the installation completes it goes to the blue screen of death and says:




    A search for the error comes up with every solution from drivers to logitech mouse, to you-name-it.


    Would anyone think the problem could be that the new ram or new processor might be bad??


    Thanks for you opinions.

  9. There is a small heatsink next to the processor fan that I believe is the chipset north bridge(?).

    It is held down by two spring loaded "pins" on diagonal corners.

    One of them is missing and the pc will no longer boot.


    I am wondering if that missing pin, which causes the little heat sink to by "away" from the chip it

    sets on, has caused some sort of overheating disaster?


    Thanks in advance Tch ers

  10. Ok. FYI - I started over and ignored the f6 part.

    then chose the QUICK format.


    I am now finishing up the last of the virus/malware program installs

    and everything seems to be working great.


    thanks guys.


    ( I love TCH )
