How come Hotmail no longer stays in sync with my Blackberry and iPhone? 

by on April 29, 2009

Q: Hotmail seemed to have quit working properly on my blackberry a few months back and now on my new iPhone. The problem is that if I read or delete a message from my handheld it is not passed back to the mail server.

Formerly, in the Blackberry mail interface you could choose a check box for something like “synch changes from my handheld to server”. Well hotmail lost that check box, but yahoo, gmail, etc retained it.

Is there a known way to get the changes applied from handheld to mail server?

by on April 27, 2009

Q: I have two computers on a wireless network. The desktop is running Windows Vista and is wired to the wireless router. The laptop is connected wireless and is running Windows XP. The router is a D-Link DIR-655 802.11N (draft) and the laptop has a D-Link DWA-652 cardbus adapter that is also 802.11N (draft). The laptop is only 60′ away from the router yet it only gets a “low” signal and loses connection several times a day. What can I do to improve the signal?


How can I restore my Gateway computer back to how it was when I got it from Gateway? 

by on April 27, 2009

Q: Can someone help me reset my Gateway desktop. It’s just a basic model desktop I bought about four or five years ago. My sister put a virus on it and then the log in screen won’t come up so I can log into my account to do anything. It won’t work in safe mode either. It was Anti- Virus pro that was on it, but we were trying to delete files to get it off and everything was fine for a few days and then the login wouldn’t come back on, it just goes to a black screen instead.


How come I cannot get Word Viewer to install on my computer running Windows Vista? 

by on April 27, 2009

Q: I had Windows XP Home on my last computer and now I have Windows Vista Home. I tried downloading the Word Viewer 2003 so I can read my docs, but every time I download, it just goes through the process like it downloaded, but never opens. When I check my temp files, nothings there. I’ve heard it works fine for people. Why am I having a problem? I even turned off my firewall and tried it, but it still didn’t work.
