Default Any techies on here?

I sure could use some help with this constant tech problem that I am currently experiencing at the moment.

When I was out yesterday and came back home, my computer's taskbar and start menu were all white. I have no idea why it happened. The whole situation happened very recently before and I have tried the usual shutting down and rebooting, but nothing seems to be helping me out at all. Even tried force rebooting with no success. Can't even reboot my computer now due to all of the transparency and aero effects. Troubleshooting the problem did not help also. Does anyone know what is going on with my computer and why this is happening?

press and hold the power button until it shuts off

as it starts up, tap the F8 function key to bot into Safe Mode

try to do a system restore to before the problem started

Here is another site with some suggestions:

As robyrob has said a "system restore" before your problem should solve it.
Let us know.

This is interesting. As I was troubleshooting, there was something that happened to be not working properly. It was all due to Desktop Window Manager being disabled which is why there were transparency and aero effects. In the end, I had to enable it in order for the taskbar and start menu to not be white anymore.

Hey, I have a question about the board and thought this might be a good thread to ask in.

I was wondering how do you unsubscribe to a thread so so you don't get email notifications anymore. I would like to stop getting the emails, thanks to anyone who could help me with this.

go to the User Control Panel http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/usercp.php

click on "List Subscriptions" http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/...ewsubscription

click on the boxes to the right of any threads you want to unsubscribe, it should have a check when it is selected

click on the box below that says "move to folder" to the right of "Selected Threads" and click on the option for "Delete Subscription", then click the "Go" button beside it.

enjoy

to disable future subscriptions, change the setting in the Control Panel under "Edit Options" http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/...do=editoptions

go down to the Default Thread Subscription Mode section and change the setting

I've been told my hard drive is dying. Since I'm going to have to get a new computer, does anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to have another laptop. Any suggestions on brands?

Another interesting fact I learned yesterday. The theme that I used (An HP installed one) doesn't support Aero, which is why I had those desktop effects in the first place to begin with.

Now I am going to have to use Aero themes from now on.

How do you know that your hard drive is dying?

I'm currently working on a 1998 Dell Windows XP (with updates to windows 7.)
Yes-- it is a very old system, and yes I did say 1998!
I have lost the ability to post pictures, but have maintained everything else.

Here is a site to check into:
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-signs...rive-lifetime/

Tip number 5 might have some help.

Now, if you really think you should start looking for a new computer/laptop
here is a site that has the top 10 brands for 2017 with reviews
https://www.atulhost.com/best-laptop-brands

Very important - make sure you have backed up your computer in case of a crash.

Good luck and happy research.

I also used XP until relatively recently. I though my hard drive was going because nothing was working properly. I couldn't even access or view some folders in the Explorer. I brought it into a new place because my old store had gone out of business. It turned out that because XP is no longer supported being on the internet with XP is taxing on your system and the system just malfunctions. I upgraded to Windows 7 and for the most part it works fine. I have a problem with streaming video now which I didn't before. Haven't figured that one out yet.
