  1. Hey guys, I have a 27" iMac running Boot Camp with both Mac OS X Lion and Windows 7 Enterprise. When I'm in Windows, is there a way that I can turn off the display? Currently if I press the power button on the back of the machine it automatically shuts down Windows. Is there a way I can configure it so that it only turns off the display as opposed to the hard drive and everything else? Or is there another/better way of accomplishing this? Thanks!
  2. Hi, I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise and it's Lightroom 3.4.1...any ideas? Thanks!
  3. Hi guys, I think I must have accidentally clicked on the "Do this from now on" button the last time I plugged in my external HDD and hit "Open in Adobe Lightroom" button. Now, every time I plug in my HDD, Lightroom opens instead of giving me the prompt for what action to take. For the life of me, I can't seem to figure out how to revert this setting back so that Lightroom doesn't launch every time I plug in my HDD. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  4. Thanks for the links...but I still can't seem to do it. I read all through how to manage profiles and everything, but it's as if the data I need isn't on my old hard drive for some reason (yet the bookmarks worked fine on it). One of the instructions is this: As I said above, I do not have any folders or files such as this in my profile folder...it's as if they are missing. My old computer was running Firefox 4, and on my new computer I've just installed Firefox 5, if that makes any difference.
  5. I tried both of these things, and neither worked: I copied the contents of my old profiles folder to my new computer and overwrote the existing files/folders, but when I open Firefox, it's still the same default bookmarks (empty) that come with the browser when you first install it. I also tried to do a bookmark restore, but when I browse to that folder on my old hard drive, there are no files to select...here's what it looks like: Old_HDD\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\11cyorfg.default\ Inside this folder are these folders and files: Cache OfflineCache startupCache urlclassifier3.sqlite XUL.mfl If I try to do a restore, it appears as though the browser is looking specifically for a "JSON" filetype, which doesn't seem to be in that profiles folder (unless it's somewhere further down, but I don't think it should/would be :/) Can anyone help?
  6. Hi gang - please be sure to read the whole topic before answering, this isn't as simple as exporting a bookmarks.html file that I can write to a USB drive and transfer. Here's my situation: Recently my old PC crapped out on me (motherboard or video card, I'm not sure which, but the HDD is fine) so I bought a new computer. Today I picked up a hard drive dock from futureshop so that I can transfer the important data from my old hard drive to my new computer (music and work files mostly). However, in my Firefox bookmarks I had a ton of saved favourites that pointed to guitar tabsheets that I had found online and collected over the years...there must have been several hundred of them...I would very much like to get them back. My question (and believe me, I've Google searched up and down for this, but no one seems to have the same problem as me) is how can I transfer the bookmarks from this old hard drive to my new computer when I can't access the browser to export my old bookmarks? I've tried browsing to the /appdata/mozilla/firefox/profiles folder like I've read in several places online, but there doesn't appear to be anything in that folder that I can use to restore my old bookmarks. Can anyone help me?
  7. Okay, I will try plugging it into one of the normal ports. Also, in case I DO need to, how would I go about disabling DHCP in my router admin? Thanks again!
  8. When my PC is connected directly to the Ethernet cable, it shows this: IP: (preferred) Subnet: Gateway: DNS: / When it's connected through the router, it shows this: IP: (preferred) Subnet: Gateway: DNS: / Does this help at all?
  9. No I can't access the modem...I only have access to the one Ethernet cable that comes into my room with the internet on it. No one else here has any sort of computer equipment, either :/
  10. What do you mean? If I connect my Ethernet cable that the internet's coming in on to one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router then there won't be any sort of connectivity...and how would I disable the "modem on router" and DHCP?
  11. I tried their live chat support but she said that because my router isn't still under warranty (I bought it several years ago), I'm not eligible for technical support. Naturally this led me into a rather heated discussion about the basics of the importance of customer relationships, as well as the costs of a lost customer vs the costs of attaining new ones, blah blah blah. Anyways, end of story, that got me nowhere. Can anyone else help?
  12. Hi guys, here's my current situation: I've got a Linksys wireless router (WRT310N) and I just moved from my apartment where I went to school to a room where I live at my new job (I work at a camp). I'm trying to setup my router so that I can broadcast a wireless signal in my building, but for the life of me I can't seem to get it working. Here's the current setup: The internet in my room comes in via Ethernet cable through the wall; I'm not sure where it goes beyond that (whether it's to a switch or another router, etc.) but basically I only have access to this one single Ethernet line. When I connect this Ethernet cable directly to my PC, the internet says I'm connected to "Connection Name" and that I have Internet Access. Here's what I'm trying to do (and what I've been trying to do): connect the Ethernet cable in my room to the modem port on my router (the one for the incoming internet line) and then connect my PC to my router with another Ethernet cable through one of the 4 ports. But when I do this, it connects me to the router, but it says I don't have any Internet Access. I figured it was something to do with my connection settings in the router so I went to the Admin Panel and tried to change the Internet Connection Type but I still haven't had any luck. When I was at school, my router was set to use a PPPoE connection because it needed a username/password connection to my ISP...but here since the internet works directly through my Ethernet cable, I figured PPPoE wouldn't really apply. I tried setting it to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" but again, it said I had no Internet Access. And when I try to set it to a Static IP Address, it gives me this message when I try to save the settings: "The router IP address equals to the subnet address. Please correct it." Can anyone help me figure out how to setup my router so that I can get my internet to work through it? Any help is greatly appreciated!
  13. Does anyone have any ideas? I know it's a long post but I just tried to explain everything as best I could.
