  1. CA3LE, My fans start out on my IMAC in a normal mode, after opening mail and then Safari they kick into max and stay that way until I put it to sleep. Shortly after awake it does it again. I have spent weeks with an Apple software person and still no fix. We did the reset for the PRAM, no change. I forgot to mention, Apple replaced my hard drive and that is when all fun started. Any suggestions beyond buying a new computer, which I am going to do shortly. The reason they replaced the hard drive was , the busy wheel was coming on early when using Safari and would be locked. This happened all the time. It still happens with new hard drive so obviously that was not the problem. https://testmy.net/ipb/public/style_emoticons/default/tickedoff.gif

  5. mudmanc4, Thank you for your comments, I will try to remember to update the thread, after she decides what to do.It may be awhile, knowing her.
  6. dlewis23, Thank you for your post, I will tell my sister what you said. I was afraid it was not going to be worth fixing.
  7. Tommie & All, I got the following response from one of HP's high rated forum participants. "If the vertical lines show up in both DOS and Window, then it means your physical LCD TFT panel is bad. You can confirm my theory by connecting an external monitor or LCD panel via your VGA connector. If the image is good, it further confirms your internal LCD panel is bad. If the image is also bad, then it is your Graphics Controller." I have forwarded this info to my sister and told her to get it checked out in LA. Therefore I am done with the problem , at least for now. Thank you all for ideas and suggestions.
  8. JH2688 Thank you for your post, No, the RAM is the same as when she bought the computer from HP.
  9. zalternate, Thank you for the post, I went to the link and followed several on several pages, but did not find any solutions.
  10. Tommie, Thank you for the response, No , I do not have the earlier fix. Laptop is in LA and I am in Texas. Just got back from out there. I had not tried their forum. After your suggestion I went to the HP forum and after posting the problem there. I also searched their posts but did not find anything similar.
  11. My sisters laptop, Compaq nx6325 2006 model, running Windows XP, has vertical differrnt colored lines across the entire screen. They are various widths, but all under 1/32, there is no repeat in the pattern. You can operate the computer with out any problems, when you have a window open you can see through the lines. All drivers and XP are up to date. I opened the laptop in DOS and the lines are still there. Any ideas? Two years ago she had black, white and blue vertical lines, I contactedHP and sthey had me download a fix and it worked. I called them and because her warranty was out, they would not respond.
  12. RyanS, Thank you, Blue against a Brown background is almost invisible to these 67 year old eyes. Thanks for correcting me.

  21. AMERICANS FOR PROSPERITY A couple of months ago I told you about the FCC's regulatorypower grab, boosted by the radical left, to gain control of the Internet andpotentially our whole communications system. With Glenn Beck's help, we exposed the White House Czarcharged with technology policy, Susan Crawford, and she was forced toresign. Unfortunately, the left'seffort to take over the Internet continues. The Federal Communications Commission is moving ahead withproposed "Open Internet" rules, which would give federal regulatorsvast new powers, and ultimately lead to government control of the Internet. The stakes are huge, and will help determine outcomes on allthe other issues we care about. That's because as long as the Internet is free, we can use it tocommunicate, educate, and organize. This is what's at stake as the FCC moves forward with its ridiculouslymisnamed "Open Internet" rulemaking.. "Open Internet" is the left's latest marketinglanguage for what they used to call "net neutrality." It is an outgrowth of the largerso-called media reform project of radical left-wing activists like RobertMcChesney, the Free Press founder who explained his goal toSocialistProject.ca: "What we want to have in the U.S. and in everysociety is an Internet that is not private property, but a publicutility." "Open Internet" or "net neutrality"sounds simple - force phoneand cable companies to treat every bit of information the same way - until yourealize that modern networks are incredibly complex, with millions of lines ofcode in every router. Making sureservices like VoIP, video conferencing, and telemedicine (not to mention thenext great thing that hasn't been invented yet) get priority may be necessaryto make the Internet work, but the government is considering regulations thatwill make it illegal to prioritize traffic. These networks cost billions of dollars to build andmaintain, and if there is uncertainty about getting a good return on thatinvestment, private investment will dry up. And then government will step in, spending billions of ourtax dollars on a government-owned and controlled Internet. Although Susan Crawford is gone, the White House Internet powergrab goes much higher, to President Obama himself. He said on the campaign trail: "I will take a backseatto no one in my commitment to Net Neutrality."

  22. Read the following:Taken fromhttp://www.internetfreedomcoalition.org/[table][tr][td][table][tr][td][table][tr][td]Don't let the government slow Internet progress The Internet has become a powerful communications and economic force because it has been free from government interference. To make sure the power and promise of the Internet continues, we need to keep it free of government interference.[list type=decimal] We oppose three basic threats to Internet Freedom: Taxes Regulations and any attempt by the United Nations to manage the Internet The FCC voted Thursday, October 22, 2009 on what it calls a "Notice of Proposed Rulemaking" (NPRM) on Net Neutrality. It is a complex 107-page proposal to regulate the Internet that you can read here. I'm reviewing the NPRM and will post a set of talking points next week, along with a form that will make it easy for you to submit formal comments. In the meantime, if you want to make your voice heard please sign our petition to oppose any Washington attempt to take over the Internet. - Phil Kerpen, Chairman, Internet Freedom Coalition[/td][/tr][/table] The Free Press and Obama Information Control Hierarchy SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2009 [img height=201 width=320]http://internetfreedomcoalition.org/uploaded_images/infocontrol-revcap-796581.jpg The list of major funders (OSI/Soros, Tides, Streisand, Nathan Cummings, Ford, Rockefeller Bros) on the chart comes directly from the Free Press 2007 Annual Report. Robert McChesney (University of Illinois professor) and John Nichols (The Nation magazine) are Free Press founders and hard-left Marxists. McChesney recently told the Socialist magazine The Bullet: "Instead of waiting for the revolution to happen, we learned that unless you make significant changes in the media, it will be vastly more difficult to have a revolution." This is a man who, two weeks after 9/11, said: "Likewise, Americans have no idea of the United States' own history in the world as a supporter of terrorism. The United States is, I think, by any honest account, the leading terrorist institution in the world today." In a February 2009 article titled "A New New Deal under Obama?" for the socialist Monthly Review McChesney and co-author John Bellamy Foster wrote: "These gains will only be made through an enormous class struggle from below. If won, they will not, we underscore, eliminate the evils of capitalism, or the dangers it poses for the world and its people. In the end, there is no real answer but to remove brick by brick the capitalist system itself, rebuilding the entire society on socialist principles. This is something that the great majority of the population will undoubtedly learn in the course of their struggles for a more equal, more humane, more collective, and more sustainable world. In the meantime, it is time to begin to organize a revolt against the ruling class–imposed ceiling on civilian government spending and social welfare in U.S. society." Free Press, far from condemning disgraced radical green jobs czar Van Jones, a former Free Press board member, rallied to his defense following his resignation, posting a statement attacking Glenn Beck and FOX News titled (http://www.freepress.net/node/72459): "Free Press Calls on Obama Administration to Resist Extremism in the Media. Defends Former Free Press Board Member Van Jones" Free Press is directly tied to White House Internet Czar Susan Crawford, described Wired Magazine as, "the most powerful geek close to the president." Free Press and ACORN are both participating organizations of Crawford's "OneWebDay" project. (http://onewebday.org/participating-organizations/) Crawford self-consciously modeled OneWebDay on Earth Day and the radical environmental agenda that it propelled forward. (http://onewebday.org/ourstory/) She explains on the OneWebDay site: "Earth Day was the model when I founded OneWebDay in 2006. In 1969, one man asked the people to do what their elected representatives would not: take the future of the environment into their own hands." Today, a worldwide citizens' movement has put the environment front and center politically. According to Crawford, "peoples' lives now are as dependent on the Internet as they are on the basics like roads, energy supplies and running water. We can no longer take that for granted, and we must advocate for the Internet politically and support its vitality personally." As Crawford explained her mission in the White House to The Wall Street Journal in April: "We should do a better job as a nation of making sure fast, affordable broadband is as ubiquitous as electricity, water, snail mail, or any other public utility." Crawford was in charge of the FCC for the Obama transition team, working under transition team co-chair John Podesta of the Center for American Progress (former employer of Mark Lloyd and Van Jones). In that capacity, she counseled Obama to appoint Julius Genachowski to the FCC, along with former Free Press staffer Jen Howard and former author of a paper for Free Press, Mark Lloyd. Free Press is now, not surprisingly, extremely influential with the Obama administration and its supposedly independent agency, the FCC. According to National Journal(http://www.nationaljournal.com/congressdaily/cda_20091005_1509.php): "Free Press, Google and Public Knowledge worked with then-candidate Obama to help develop his tech policies. Public Knowledge President Gigi Sohn is a longtime friend of FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, who tapped Free Press spokeswoman Jen Howard to be his press secretary. Free Press and the Media Access Project, a public interest law firm, regularly draw marquee names such as Susan Crawford, special assistant to the president for science, technology and innovation policy, as keynoters. She previously was a member of Public Knowledge's advisory board." The push for Internet regulation ultimately goes all the way to the top.
