If you do not have high voltage training, messing in a CRT based monitor can hurt you due to the high voltage risk.\015\012\015\012Detecting failed electrolytic caps is not hard. I've replaced the caps in my monitor a couple times (It's a 12 year old 21" CRT, that replaced a 10 year old 20" CRT 10 years ago), but you do need basic soldering skills.\015\012\015\012An electronics tech could probably fix this for the cost of a hand full of caps, but remember, you will need to pay for service time (skills are costly), and that will probably run 75 to 100 dollars.\015\012\015\012If you are concerned that someone may benefit from you lack of ability, then you can have the monitor diagnosed for $35.00 or so in most places, donate it to a charity that refurbishes computers for the needy, and let them fix it :), or just ride that bad boy until it dies (what I'm doing, I'm not replacing the caps a third time, I'm planing on getting a 24" widescreen LCD to replace my 21" CRT)\015\012\015\012\015\012Peace.\015\012\015\012P.D.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).

I have roxio digital mediaplus v7.2 and free AVG upgrade to v8.0 fails due to an apparent bug in my roxio s/w. But when I use roxio itself to search for updates it reports no updates available, though roxio website is full of options. I'm not familiar with roxio, never used it. PC was rebuilt after kids on-line games killed it, and we used Nero before. I don't know how to sort out this apparent problem with roxio - any ideas ?


I know a lot of OEM vista machines that are running this software combination and get a similar error. As far as I can tell, Roxio will not fix this bug unless you have version 8 or later. Unfortunately, while switching to another product is not bad ... PC Desktops
