Maria asks…

What’s wrong with my windows 7 theme thingey?!?

I am so annoyed right now.
Earlier When I went to the task manager I accidentally clicked something wierd and now my whole windows 7 setup is like retarded.
I can’t exactly explain what’s wrong but here are some screenshots:

Basically I don’t know how to change it back to how its supposed to be. Where i am able to change the colors and when I click a running program at the bottom its actually gives you a preview of the windows that are up

Matt NJ answers:

I think you kill the the desktop Windows manager process and it switch to an non aero theme. Try click on the anyone of the aero theme below in the first pic and then configure it to your preference. If it still doesn’t work then restart Windows and it should come up with the aero look

How Do I Update My iPAQ h5450 To Windows Mobile 6 or 7?

My OS for my IPAQ h5450 is Windows Mobile 2003. I would like to change the OS to WINDOWS MOBILE 6 or 7

Matt NJ answers:

Unfortunately, you cannot.
The hardware required to run Windows Mobile 5/6 has higher requirements than Pocket PCs designed to run Windows Mobile 2003.

On top of this, without a cooked ROM package specifically designed for your PPC, you would be left without driver support, leaving your touchscreen, microphone, wifi radio, etc. useless.

*Note: Windows Mobile 7 is not set to release until 2010, and will certainly not be compatible with your iPAQ.

Sorry for the bad news.
Hope this helped…

How do I import MP4 to iMovie?

So i downloaded an MP4 (not mpeg4, or whatever), and i need to edit it on imovie.
itll show it importing, but it wont show up. it opens in quicktime (i don’t have pro)

i have imovie07.
what do i do? i can’t download any extra programs or software or anything because this isn’t my computer.

Matt NJ answers:

According Apple official website, iMovie (including iMovie ’11/’09/’08) can only import DV, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, MOV and M4V.

Though the MP4 file format defines the storage of MPEG-4 audio, scenes and multimedia content using the ISO Base Media File Format, the MP4 file may also contain any number of audio, video, and even subtitle streams. So it is impossible for the MP4 file to determine the type of streams in an MPEG-4 file based on its filename extension alone.

Therefore, you may have some clues that your downloaded MP4 (not MPEG-4) can not shown up on iMovie

if you wanna to import mp4 to imovie, you have no choice but to use extra program or software to convert your mp4 to imovie compatible mpeg-4 format

the following is a step by step guide on how to successfully import mp4 to imovie

i also use imovie 07 and have tried the above guide, and the software in this guide is safe to use

since the computer is not yours, why not uninstall the software after the conversion.
