Upper End For MaxLocksPerFile Value

Q: Upper End For MaxLocksPerFile Value

While working on an MS Access problem someone recommended I increase the MaxLocksPerFile value from the 9500 default to 200,000 shown in the example from MS Support. It didn't solve my problem but my users other queries ran faster. This is generally considered a good thing.

So here is my question... what is the upper limit for the MaxLocksPerFile value? Reasoning that if 200K is good 500K must be better right?

I have recently installed Windows 10 and Access 2013. I have a data base of about 1.5 GB after Repair and Compact.
I have recently started getting the Error Message MaxLocksPerFile exceeded. This is normally while running a query and updating fairly large files. I then also get a message "ID is not an index in this table" and it freezes. I also get another messsage "Cannot find AutoKeys". Then Access does a recovery and sometimes it is successful and sometimes not.
When I try to copy a largish table I get the message 'Table could not be opened'. I then click on the table and it opens perfectly. The problem appears to be worst when the database size grows to its maximum of about around 2GB.

1). If I look in Macros, AutoKeys is empty !
2). If I check on a working backup AutoKeys is populated.
3). Each time I get the error AutoKeys is emptied.
4). MaxLocksPerFile is not in my Registry.
5). In the Registry, I tried to go to the recommended:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Office\15\ccess Connectivity Engine\Engines\Ace
but Access Connectivity Engine etc. are not listed. I do see listed, 15\Access\Capabilities but not what I wanted.
6). A registry search also does not find "MaxLocksPerFile"
7). The best I came up with in the Registry is:
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-840246236-1569088942-1004\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Access\Access Connectivity

This may sound confusing but let me try to explain what happened. I have 2 computers and an A/B switch. The personal computer (Windows Vista) is never on the internet. I was using the personal computer with a wireless mouse and keyboard. I wanted to backspace and the keyboard wouldn't work. I switched to my internet computer (Windows 7) and the keyboard wouldn't work there either. However, the mouse did work on both computers.I thought maybe the batteries were dead in the keyboard and replaced them. No effect. The lights on the wireless base were flashing and it wouldn't synch. I replaced the mouse and keyboard with a wired set with no effect. I think I then rebooted the machine and the mouse got stuck in the upper right hand corner. The cursor would move erratically when I tried to move the mouse but would always end up in the corner. I can't get the mouse to move so I can get to the computer settings or anything. I went back to the wireless as it is now synched but the cursor is in the same pattern. I rebooted the computer in safe mode with no improvement. This just happened in the middle of using my slide-to-digital copier which I've been using for hundreds of slides with no problems like this. Now both computers are messed up by either keyboard and mouse. Whatever happened affects both the internet and non-internet machines alike. Help!!

A:Cursor stuck in upper right corner

Update: When I connected the mouse and keyboard directly into the computer they worked OK. So I guess there must be something wrong with the A/B switch?

Hello - I removed my upper and lower filters so that my DVD drive would read but now I am unable to burn CD's via iTunes - is there a way I can replace those filters?

A:Upper & Lower filters - Need to replace

Only thing I can think of, would be to reinstall the programs that added them in the first place. (The filters are cd/dvd drivers/driver add-ons that are installed by third party software). In this case, they probably came from iTunes.

Otherwise a system restore would restore the registry to the state before you deleted them. Start > All programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Hello everyone.

I have always thought the windows upper stripes are a bit useless because it's a waste of screen space just for the maximize, minimize and close buttons and program names. This issue is even more annoying (at least for me) nowadays with the current 16:9? screen proportion, which is, on the other hand, very good for other purposes.

Add to it the fact that menus bars are located right beneath it and the result is a very horizontal proportion of screen effective area. This becomes not very advisable running some programs in which a more vertical one would suit better.

It's possible to set menu bars vertically at the sides of a window in some programs, as Autocad, and actually it's so easy as to click on them and drag them towards the side you want to.

I don't remember seeing them vertically at the right or left of a Window's window. I'm browsing the internet looking for something to do it but I have found nothing thus far, neither in Windows help.

Well, I know F11 and the a sliding task bar partially solves this issue but I think that not in case you have two windows at the same time.

Is there a way to set either the window upper stripe and menu bars at the side of a window?

Thanks in advance.

A:Is it possible to set sidewards windows upper stripes?


If the white stripes you are referring to is the title bar (with the menus underneath( there is no way in Windows to change this.

Sure some programs allow you to drag things around, but not Windows 7.

The only program in Windows 7 that I can think of that you can move toolbars around is Internet Explorer if you choose unlock the toolbars, but it does not allow vertical alignment.

Could somebody tell me how to disable those messages that slide out from the upper right corner of the screen please.

I've tried disabling notifications for 3 hours but it doesn't disable the notification that pops out every time that I go to print a document.

It's basically warning me every time that I print a page on my printer that the ink is low. I know it's low, I will probably be able to still print a hundred or more pages before the cartridges actually have to be replaced.

The main problem is that the way that I have to do real life work, I need to print one page documents one after another, so in an afternoon I may end up printing 150 separate pages, so that means I get that message sliding out 150 times and the warning sound playing 150 times, about once every 20 seconds or so as I submit each page for printing.

Anyway, probably more than you wanted to know, so if somebody could tell me how to turn off the notifications that appear in the upper right corner of my screen I'd sure appreciate it.

I have already set how my mouse works by preventing windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen but I now have a new aggravation : the windows maximize when I touch their upper frame - and I do that to move them on the screen, not to MAXIMIZE them !!!

truth is, I have the feeling my mouse has been behaving strangely for a week or so - it's a regular cordless logitech, it suddenly also seems to open files at a single click (it's not set to do that) instead of just selecting them, besides resizing windows when I don't want to...

has some window update mixed things up for me ?

My Dell Latitude display is fading in the upper third. It works fine with an external monitor. I attached a picture. Is it fixable?
I googled and saw that I can relatively easily replace the inverter ($ 60) or the fluorescent bulb ($10). however, those would cause the screen to be all black or very dark. So it looks like something else is broken. Any ideas?

Obviously replacing the entire screen (if I can even buy one) might be too expensive and not worth it.

I haven't opened it up yet, wanted to research first what repair options I have.

Edit: when the mouse pointer is in the upper third it is almost invisible and leaves traces.

Ok so there's a really old thread about this already. But it didn't solve my problem. When I boot vista, a little white square appears in the upper left corner. It's not my wallpaper. On the old thread they have resolved the problem as being an ATI GPU Driver problem, and the update fixed it. But here's my problem, I don't have an ATI GPU.

When I right click the little white sqaure I can open up its properties, and in the properties it has a name of some website. Shortly after I even read it a "close program" window comes up. I click on close and the sqaure dissapears until the next time I boot.

Leaving the white square on just messes with whatever programs Im running. For example: If im watching a movie in full-screen, it will randomly just exit out of full screen. It doesnt do that once the white sqaure is off.

Well thanx for hearing out my problem, any help would be great.

> My new protege has heating issue. upper left corner(power button area) is heating up pretty bad and doesn't cool down easy. Is this common for everyone, or is there anyway that i can reduce the heat?

I guess this is your first ?small? notebook which supports such big CPU/GPU performance. You will notice this on all small (~13?) notebooks. Why? Because the cooling modules are placed on the left and the whole warm air flows from this direction.
I?ve got U400 series. It?s 13? unit and the left area is warm too because of the cooling modules.

Furthermore the unit supports an overheating protection which means that the notebook would shut down automatically if the temperature is too high.
Does the notebook shut down automatically? No?
Well, in such case the temperature is ok and not too high.

Of course you can change the Win 7 power management settings in order to decrease the CPU and GPU performance which would lead to lower heat dissipation. This keep the temperature at lower level.

I've been using Win 8 for a while and was frustrated that the "filmstrip" view option was gone. I used WinXP since it came out till this past summer. If that tells you how ingrained I was and am. Win 10 is great over Win 8 or 7 but, that filmstrip isn't there. Most people with cameras take landscape type pictures, some portrait. I think the majority take them in landscape. Well, in Win 8 and 10, you "can" get a preview of images with the preview pane option BUT, it's stuck to the right side of the window. Now, 99% of my pictures are landscape so, viewing an image on the right hand side is restricting and does not allow one to view a landscape image fully. It's annoying as all get out. Is there a way to move the images preview pane to the upper position and the thumbnails to the bottom? Just like the filmstrip in Win XP?

I hope someone can help or explain this problem for me.

I have a DVD I made of my website. The website is constructed with every thing relative to the local system so that it will operate from the DVD.

My XP system has 2 DVD drives. One is a read only (E:) and the other is a R/W drive (F:). The problem is that on the read only drive ALL the directory and file names are in upper case and they are truncated to 8 characters, DOS files? For instance ThisIsanImage.jpg wil be THISISANI.JPG and index.html will be INDEX.HTML.

If I copy the files to my hard drive the result is the same. Of course the html involved will not function with the case of names and directories being changed.

However, if I put the DVD in my R/W drive the directory names and file names are correct and in mixed case with names longer than 8 characters. The website works fro this drive and copies to my hard drive ok. I have never run into this before.

Any one know what's going on. Do I have a setting some where in XP that I don't know about.

Your assistance is most welcome as I want to be able to send this DVD to other people, but I can't be confident that they won't have a problem.

What I first thought would be a simple keyboard problem apparently isn't. When I type the upper case D using the right shift button, I only can get a lower case "d". When using the left shift button, I get nothing but a cursor flash and no letter at all. If I hit the D key again (2nd time) holding down the left shift button, I do finally get the upper case D and as many as I want thereafter.

What I have done so far: Thinking this was a bad keyboard, I purchased a brand new keyboard.......same problem. I then borrowed the keyboard off my wife's computer which is working well.........same problem on my computer. So not likely a keyboard problem. I then uninstalled the keyboard driver and re-installed it THREE TIMES........still same problem. This is an HP Media Center computer with XP Pro so I downloaded the very latest keyboard driver for this keyboard and installed.........still same problem. Of course I rebooted after each install.

I then went to the PC Doctor diagnostic tools and did the keyboard test which puts a keyboard on the screen and as you press each key, it blanks out the key pressed on the screen. All keys work find except for when I go to upper case with either shift button and type the letter D. Instead of just the D going blank on the screen, the C key and the CTRL key go blank also at the very same time. So for some reason my D key is being translated somewhere into a D, C with the CTRL button signal. How can that be?

Sometimes the keys on my keyboard does something really weird. I have never found out what is the cause. Occasionally, I can be typing and then if I hit caps lock, everything goes to lowercase.

So I've noticed today that the upper edge of my laptop's touchpad seems to be rising slightly as if something is pushing it up from behind. I can push it back in, but it just comes up again. Initially I was worried I had a swelling battery, since the battery is situated in that area. But I opened up the laptop to check, and the battery shows no signs to distortion at all. My best guess now is that it might be a problem with whatever adhesive Dell used to glue it down.

Everyday I upload some files to my website and to simplify my website operations, I use the same filename and just upload a file with new information every day. The case of file extensions is of no consequence to Windows 7, but it matters to my website. I want to standardize on one case and it doesn't matter which as long it's the same all the time. I have one app, the snipping tool, which seems to generally make files using uppercase, but I have some existing files that are lower case. I have tried to get rid of the lower case extensions by deleting the file and then recreating it with the same name. When I do, Windows changes the case from upper to lower. If I simply create a brand new file with no previous instances of that file in existence (as far as I know), then the default case is upper. How does one go about converting all existing files of a particular type to a standard file extension case, be it upper or lower.



A:Change file extension upper/lower case

Not sure you can as Windows is case insensative, but have you tried doing it from a Command prompt, enclosing the filename.ext in double quotes as "filename.ext"?

If that doesn't work, maybe a two step process would.

ren "FileName.EXT" FileName.EX"
ren "FileName.EX" FileName.ext"

Hello everyone, I really need your help. My Sony Vaio laptop (model: SVE151G13M) did not recognize my dvd/cd-rom anymore and dumb as I am, I tried to fix this myself. On the website of Microsoft I read a step-by-step guide on how to remove the upper filters and lower filters to fix this problem. However, I may have removed too many, or the wrong filters. Now my laptop does not want to reboot anymore due to missing files. I read that I can recover the system by pushing the ASSIST button, choose troubleshoot/recovery etc. The system asks me to rescue my documents first, and of course that is my main goal.. Save as many files, photos, documents and videos as I can. I attached an external hard disk with plenty of space on there, chose to rescue the files and waited. However, I have tried multiple times but it is not working (error message). Does anyone know how to replace the deleted upper filters and lower filters, without having to reboot or recover the entire system and loose all of my files? I read something about 'Last known good configuration' but I cannot find this in the options when I press ASSIST. Please, I am desperate since I am also in the process of writing my master thesis and really need this computer.. :smileysad:

Hi all. So, I've got a desktop running Windows 7 32bit, and a corded USB Dell optical mouse. This morning I booted up the computer, and after a short while the mouse cursor started staggering up to the upper right hand corner of the screen and would not come back down.

I tried plugging in a different optical mouse, and the same thing happened. I tried all the usb ports on the computer, no change. I tried updating the drivers and just uninstalling and reinstalling the mouse, no change. I did a system restore to yesterday, when it was working just fine. That actually seemed to work for a few minutes, then it started up again.

So right now I'm running a full system virus scan, but I was just wondering if anyone here had any ideas as to the cause. I haven't downloaded any software or changed any settings in the last few days.

Well, I messed with the registry when I shouldn't have done, and now my mouse and keyboard aren't working. Lesson learned.

I was trying to fix an external hard drive that had stopped working, and was told to delete the Upper Bounds from the registry in certain places. Unfortunately I seem to have deleted them from the wrong places. My computer will load Windows until the password screen, then I can't use my mouse or keyboard whatsoever.

I have tried Googling various solutions to this problem but haven't yet found a solution that works for my problem specifically.

I've tried Safe Mode (the same thing happens), and trying to boot from my Windows CD installation from the CD drive doesn't make any difference. I have installed the Major Geeks recovery software to a USB hard drive (, have tried to recover Windows by pressing R, and have got to the stage where I have a command prompt. It's asked me for the Admin password, now I've got a C:\WINDOWS> prompt. What do I need to type for it to tell my mouse and keyboard to work?

My computer is getting on a bit (I've had it over four years, albeit with various re-installs of Windows), and I'm only really bothered about recovering the data on there and am happy to re-install Windows then. Is it just easier to visit a local friendly computer shop, recover my data, pay a few quid for the pleasure, then re-install Windows?

If you do not have a disc, then you probably have a restore partition. Restart the computer on the logo screen when you see the message Press (Key) to Enter E-Recovery do so, this will restore your computer to Factory Defaults. Be sure to backup first.

My computer is about a year old now, built by me and my dad. Recently it's been having some issues though-- for a while I think it was over heating, causing it to reboot. At least I hope it was just overheating. One time when I booted up my computer it told me overclocking failed, which was odd because I hadn't messed with any of the settings (all still defaults).

But heres the major issue: If you boot it up, after the BIOS it'll give you a black screen with a blinking underscore up in the left corner. If you're quick enough you can get it to go into safe mode, etc. You can also choose which drive to boot from--- I found that it only gives you the black screen with certain drives. But, I did notice that its very slow when you have the "loading" screen for windows-- it'll slowly fade in and start loading, then it goes to a normal speed.

A:Black Screen + White Underscore in Upper Left Corner

I could be a memory issue. Try removing RAM one stick at a time and seeing if any of them are causing it. Then try them individually in each slot. It could be the motherboard if only one slot is faulty.

I have a Sony Vaio PCV-RS420 with a Pioneer DVR-106D dvd writer. I was creating a recovery disk when after writing the DVD, it asked for a cd-r. The drive kept having errors, and I checked the media on another pc and they were fine. I saw on several posings that removing the upper and lower filters from the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318) would fix the problem. Now it wont even recognize the dvd roma at all. The device mgr. says all is OK. I have uninstalled and re-installed the device from there, and the IDE as well, and I have phicically removed the drive, rebooted, and re-connected the drive and re-booted but to no avail. Uh-Oh - i did not back up the registry (makes me a dummy) and the recovery is not functioning due to my c partition being too small.

I have Vista home profesional machine. Everything works fine except that every so often a small box appears in the mid-upper left screen. This box has an"X" to close it, an underline to minimaze it. Except nothing works.The computer imediately "freezes" I have tryed shuting down every thing in task master. Still no good. MY guess is that it is some form of Malware that originally wanted me to buy some program, but has gone haywire and lost the link to whatever product it was pushing. Any guesses?Edit: Moved from Miniguides to Vista~~boopme

Hello there

So after installing and tweaking windows 8, some small annoyances remain. One of them that i encounter every day is as follows:
I have 2 monitors. Primary on the right, secondary on the left.
If i take my cursor up to the top left of the primary monitor, it gets "stuck" and will not move over to the left hand screen (secondary monitor). I believe this is caused by the APP bar which I have disabled as per (
However the problem still remains. If i go aproximately 10 pixels down from the upper left hand corner, i can mouse over to the other screen fine. No menu comes up, my cursor just hits a wall. I have made sure both montior tops are in line in the screen resolution

I tried to shoot a video of it, but of course camstudio does not work in windows 8 (sigh).
steps to reproduce are, drag your mouse to the very top left corner with the intention of moving it to the second monitor.
How can i disable? I have tried the GPO setting for EdgeUI which creates the registry key ( DisableTLcorner) in the link above.

As a bit of background, if one is constantly using VNC to manage other peoples computers, I do not want to steal focus from their mouse by dragging my cursor over the centre of the screen. So i bring my mouse cursor to the very top (title bar area) and try
and move between screens. Obviously this is a windows 8 "feature". Anyone else a... Read more

A:Cannot mouse over upper left hand corner on dual monitors

Um no, I have never in my life found that installing a monitor driver ever fixed anything.

there is nothing in the application log that has anything to do with this problem as its a mouse event. No event is obviously generated when i am moving the mouse around the screen.

you cannot reproduce? I have installed a few more windows 8s and the problem exists on every single one.

here is a video of the event. Finaly got camstudio working properly, just have to do the whole screen. in the video, i try and move the mouse in the upper left and lower left of the screen. the two screens are different wallpapers to make it easier to see.
I have managed to find a service that allows uploads, the video file is here so you can see what im talking about. I hope that makes it clearer.

I'm having an upper-/lower filter problem (at least that's what the troubleshooting dialog box that popped up after) while trying to save the data on an old disc to a new one. These directions are so vague, Give step-by-step instructions, it's the Registry
and we both know that it's better to just not save my data, than to mess with the Registry and with something I know nothing about. Please help-Step-by-step instructions would be most helpful, preferably with pictures (or at least some illustrations). 
                              Thanx for the help,I really appreciate it,
