I promise, I have tried every way and used every combination of search terms that I can think of to see if this question has been answered .. somewhere, before I asked here.
I am Really, Really new to pc's and I try my best to figure out my problems before I bother others with what I suspect is a 'typical' newbie's question.
That being said, I have one, (a problem) that has me stumped.
First. I have a new Gateway MCE 2005 (media center edition) pc which I'm not sure if it carries the Home or Pro XP. (amd athlon 64x2 duel core processor 3800+) My bios say pro.
Just in case it is important in answering my question, I have the gateway 21" Fpd2185w flat panel monitor. (the one that you can turn on its axis and the display changes from landscape to portrait screen atomaticaly)
Ok, the question.
I use the magnifier, Alot.
I can see everything, text, pictures, icons, my desktop clock .. Everything except when one of those "alert messages" pop up on the task bar.
When I put the magnifier over one of those messages, they just dissapear!?
An example would be something like: Mcafee putting up one of those balloon messages at the bottom of the screen saying that my virus scanner needs updating.
When I put the magnifier on where the text message (balloon) should be, it isn't there? Those balloon messages Will Not show in my magnifier.
If, this question makes any sense .. to anyone, I hope that you can help me out here.
Being Almost blind is bad enough. Being Almost blind, fairly young and pc illiterate is .. The Worst!
Thank You Everyone
