I had just upgrade a Users computer to Office 2007 , They wanted to use Microsoft Outlook for their work email and utilise Outlook Express for their peronsal email. However upon opening the spell checker it had been changed to the French dictionary. I also noticed that I was unable to change it back to the English dictionary.

Turns out this is noted fault from Microsoft! http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932974

Their solution is to download and install Windows Vista / Windows 7 New Version of Outlook Express = “Windows Live Mail”

I know how users get attached to their software , and the way it looks and feels! So luckily I found a solution so the user could still utilise Outlook Express Spell Checker

This is to Download and Install : http://www.snapfiles.com/downloads/dlspelloe.html ( Which is Spell Checker For OE 2.1 )

Just to note , this will only restore English ( United States ) Language

1219169973-hp-compaq-6515b-6715b-laptops[1]Recently after upgrading my Compaq 6715p Laptop to Windows 7 from Windows XP, everytime my laptop came out of Standby or Hibernation it locked up, and the only way to unlock it was to hard reset the laptop with its power button. My Laptop has a X1200 Radeon Mobile Graphics Card. After trying to upgrade to the latest driver version , I found I couldn’t find the drivers for the X1200 on the ATI’s Site After some research I found that you can download and install the x1050 and the x1300 Drivers for this card. Upon installing these it fixed the issue

514450MGFZL._SL500_AA240_[1]The default Data paths have changed at Sage 2008 and 2009 . These are now set depending on the OS. NB – In pre Sage 2008 versions the Company file was in the Sage Program Folder. The actual data would be in a subfolder of the Program Folder i.e. C:\Program Files\Sage 2007\Accounts Windows Vista and Windows 7 – Data is in -> C:\ProgramData\Sage\Accounts\2008 Windows XP – Data is in -> C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Sage\Accounts\2008\ Sage uses a COMPANY file with no file extensions to reference data paths for your sage folders E.G. S:\COMPANY.001 To Reset Sage and to get it start the open company wizard , close sage and delete this COMPANY file This site has a loads of top tips on Sage

Adventure-Works_lg[1] When a Small Business User logs into Remote Web Workplace on a Small Business Server 2008, when trying to login to one of the computers he might be greated with “No computers are available” in Remote Web Wokplace for SBS 2008 This is down the the fact the user does not have any computers setup for him/her on the server. To setup some computers. Login to the server , open the Windows SBS Console , Open the Users and Groups tab. Open up the user in question Go to the computer Tab , then tick the box “Can Remotely access this computer” on the computers you wish to make available to the user. Setting the user as Local Administrator on these computers through this screen will automatically tick the “Can Remotely access this computer” box and grey it out.

LightboxIt seems if you do not have a title value for hyperlink with Lightbox , Internet Explorer displays a null value for the default description Lightbox has released an update and the changelog fixes this error However if you are using a third party tool, where you cannot modify the main lightbox files , you can resolve this issue by setting the title flag yourself in the hyperlink to nothing e.g.
<a href=’picture.gif’ rel=’lightbox’ title=””><img src=”thumbpic.gif” border=”0″></a><br><a class=’linkHiRes’ href=’pricingpage.gif’></a>

gprs on blackberry When setting up a single user blackberry, I would recommend using the Blackberry Internet Services rather than say Blackberry Desktop Redirector as Internet Services has guaranteed uptime and easier to administer. Sometimes after you setup your blackberry on Internet Services after registering your phone on the Vodafone Network by insert your sim card and powering the device on , email still does not load on the blackberry. This is usally down to your service provider not enabling your account for Blackberry or GPRS. To test this make sure your GPRS symbol is in capitals instead of Lowercase. Lowercase gprs and edge means that the phone can see the gprs or edge network , but cannot authenticate to it ( Usually due to your provider blocking it) Another way to tell if your phone has a data connection is to it type *#105# from your Blackberry handset then press the call button. This should return something like this CS: 447785013100 VF-Usk Registered 04-Oct-2008 19:01:40 PS: 447785012610 SGSNMS1 Registered 06-Oct-2008 18:39:25 CS Stands for Circuit Switched ( What your telephone calls use ) PS Stand for Packet Switched ( What your internet uses ) Make sure your phone has a value for both of these WIRELESS CONNECTION STATUS INDICATORS: EDGE: You can use the phone, send/receive email, PIN, SMS text & MMS msgs & use the browser with a high speed data connection. GPRS: You can use the phone, send/receive email, PIN, SMS text & MMS msgs & use the browser. edge, gprs, GSM: You can use the phone and send receive SMS text msgs. SOS: You can only make emergency calls OFF: You Blackberry Curve’s radio is turned off. X: You are not in a wireless coverage area.
