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.

thanks,

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"

Hi.

When I try to change the case from upper to lower or vice versa of filenames n windows explorer, the changes are not accepted. Also, adding or deleting of spaces in existing filename words is also not being accepted. I have admin privileges.

Thank you for help.

A:Can we change the upper/lower case of filenames in Windows Explorer?

Hi Seymoria, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Filenames in Windows Explorer are not case sensitive. This means that for Windows, the filenames ThisIsMyDocument.doc, THISISMYDOCUMENT.DOC and tHiSiSmYdOcUmEnT.DoC are all the same, the file would be found and can be referred to using any of these or any other combination of upper and lower case letters, as long as the name itself stays the same.

Therefore, if you have a file document_1.doc but you'd like to change the first letter to upper case D, selecting rename and changing the first d to D does nothing. Windows simply does not understand it, for it there was no change as the first letter did not change.

You need to work around this by renaming the file first to something else, then rename it again to Document_1.doc, this time using the upper case D. I use a neat trick here, changing the first letter from lower to upper case: I select rename, delete just the first letter of the filename, the one with lower case, then rename again this time entering the upper case first letter.

I have what i hope is a quick/easy question to answer. Whenever i transfer files from a CD-RW disk back to my hard drive, the names convert into upper case. This doesn't happen from the floppy drive or cd-r disks, only cd-rw & only on transfer back to the hard drive, not in transfer to the disk.

I have a HP cd writer (getting fairly old now) with adaptec direct cd software. i'm running windows 98. I DON'T have the "allow all upper case names" option in folder options ticked and it also happened on my old computer and is still happening on my new computer (same cd-writer transfered to the new computer).

Does anyone know how i can stop it happening? i know it's not a huge issue, but i've just bought a new computer (still getting it up & running) & i really don't want a PILE of files all with upper case names if i can avoid it, so really hoping it can be fixed

Hi I changed all lower case of "city" to Uppercase "CITY" USING Find and Replace. But when I tried to change the same "CITY" to "city" it didn't work. However I did get the message we have made 12 replacements but not even one "CITY" was changed to "city."

A:How to change words in Uppercase to lower case

Hello Mike, thanks for your reply. No I am not using Excel but Ms Word 2016. I think I found the solution to my problem. Find and Replace is case sensitive. Therefore to change Uppercase words to lowercase one has to go to "more" option and check the box "Match Case." I did that and I was able to change all "CITY" to "city" using Find and Replace.I hope this may be helpful to someone.

I just upgraded my 8 year old iiyama monitor for a new Dell monitor with a bigger screen with higher resolution - oh and I have got new spectacles. I had replaced the capacitors twice in the iiyama (having to keep jabbing the "On" button to get the current surge going) as I don't care for these new wide screen type monitors but I had to get updated eventually.

Anway, with my fantastic new monitor, I now notice that on both the Desktop (of Vista) and in Winodws Explorer all the letters "i" and "l" have an almost imperceptible red fringe or hue. How weird is that?

This happens whether I use the VGA or the DVI cable connection.

Amazingly, this issue was raised by wguru and Saga Lout on this forum 18 months ago but it is not clear to me whether anyone ever came up with a solution. The possibility of a virus or registry corruption error was mentioned but I did not understand whether this was ever proven.

I run about 3 virus programs most days and I woudl be devastated if I unknowingly had a virus. It is difficult but not impossible to believe. Having said that, I have occasionally tweaked the Rgeistry e.g. to get rid of "klingons".

I suspect I have had this issue a while but only with the new monitor has it become noticeable.

Any suggestions on what to try next would be appreciated.

As a newbie, first poster, it seems that I am prohibited from sending a PM to wguru or Saga Lout.

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?

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.

Hi,

Ever since I've linked my MS and Skype account, my email is now always "seen" as [email protected] LIVE.COM.
Even my Windows Phone when I sign in with MS account, it gets recognized as @LIVE.COM at the end.

It's slightly annoying, I've checked all my settings on the web/computer/phone.. Nothing does the trick. I do sign in with lowercase email, but it somehow gets changed to uppercase LIVE.COM on it's own.

Anyone else experienced something like this?

This is a screenshot of switching local account to MS. Note that name before LIVE.COM is in lowercase, and I did sign in with all lower case email.

I have a Dell Optiplex GX270. When I press the power button, the power button light turns amber, I hear some fans spinning, and the CD drive spinning. However, it never gets to the boot screen (or any screen). If I open the case and press the power button, however, the power button turns green and the computer works fine (loads all the way up and functions like normal). If I close the case after it has started, it continues to run fine. I'm guessing / hoping it's not the mother board or power supply that has directly gone bad... but maybe there is a connection or something? that changes from when it's closed to when it's open. I've heard of something like... the motherboard is shorting out by touching the case... but I'm not really sure where to look for that / how. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

I have an Acer Aspire X1700 (Details
It's about 2 1/2 years old now. Came with Windows Vista, I upgraded it to Windows 7. Also has a newer video card than what came with it.

Anyway, The PSU fan is getting really obnoxious, it gets really loud (more or less like a lawn mower). I have taken the thing apart and have tried every suggestion given to quiet it down, which it does for a whole week or two. This is a small form factor PC, so to even take the power supply out you have to basically take out everything else just to get to it. I have looked for replacements but they are very obsolete. It's only 220W anyway, so i'd like something a little more powerful.

What I want to do is get a larger case that I can use the same hardware is (motherboard, drives, etc) and purchase a larger power supply for that case. 220W really limits the PC. The small case holds a lot of heat even with all fans cleaned and working properly. Even just taking a CD/DVD out that was in it is very hot. I want a case with better airflow than this one.
I really am not sure what kind of case to get that will meet my needs. I don't want anything really fancy. If possible I'd like to get it off newegg.com

Any suggestions would be great.

If it's "lsass.exe" with a lower case "L", then it is a virus in the Sasser family, most likely. You'll need to scan it with a good antivirus either by using a boot CD with an antivirus on it or take your drive out and hook it up as a secondary drive in another computer. That should get you back up and running. You may have to do a repair installation of Windows after you've scanned it.

The lower case L on my computer has gone berserk. It will not function correctly in Windows. When struck nothing appears. However, if the caps lock key is activated and the shift key is held down, the lower case L works. The upper case L and all other keys work fine.

This is only true in Windows. Iím running Windows Pro 2000 and in the Windows login screen, lower case Ls can be typed in both the user name and the password fields. As soon as Windows comes up, it stops working.

A:Lower case L does not type

You say that you have tried different keyboards, and that outside of windows the lower case L works, so the only thing that I could think of (and it's a long shot), is that when Windows has loaded (and any startup programs as well), a process or program has changed the mapping of the lower case L to perform some other function.
Have you tried booting into safe mode? This should stop any non-Windows programs from loading. Give this a try and see what happens. If the L works normally, then you need to see what programs are being loaded (in normal mode), and remove them one at a time (restarting and testing each time).

Help! Because I'm the DBA, my employer assumes that I know (or even care about) Access. Because of some personnel changes, I've inherited an Access flat-file DB - with a "request" to clean up the data for the next person who will use and maintain this DB

If I can get some help getting started, then I can figure out how to do other data clean-up tasks.

First (and hopefully only) call for help: in Access 2003, how do I convert to upper case, all letters in the "room" field in all records in the table "main"?

In SQL: UPDATE main SET room=UPPER(room);

I have zero understanding of VBA (although I used VB 12-15 years ago), and don't know how to get started writing a query using VBA. I've tried reading some books, but they tend to assume prior knowledge, e.g., how to invoke a code editor in which to write the code.

I could probably use sql and odbc, or export to CSV, import into SQL, fix, and import back into Access. There are probably other possibilities, too. But I have an awful feeling that this is not a temporary situation, so I may as well suck it up and learn Access.

Now another question comes up regarding modifying the cooling of my case/ computer etc.

I was wanting to carve two 3 1/2" holes in the top of my case, for two 12cm fans. Now I know fully how to do this, however, I was wondering which direction the air flow should go. Should the fans blow into my case? (Like I suspect) Or should I have them blow out?

The orange highlights are the fans I wish to add. Which direction should I have the air flow setup?
 

A:Case airflow question before modifying case

I would have them sucking air out. Hot air rises, and the side panel fan will hit the VGA's mb, etc and spread out, also they are right next to the PSU. You wont have any really big difference either in or out , but I would have those two pulling the hot air that manages to make it to the top of the case out. and negative pressure tend to run a bit cooler overall.

Hey

Just bought a nice Xion II Modder's Case for my PC. I slowly removed all the parts from the old case, and carefully replaced them into the new case.

However, on boot up, depending on what IDE drive is connected, I get:

a.) a blank screen
b.) A bios screen with no memory check but instead a message simply stating "Memory...T"
c.) Differing amounts of memory (varies between 25000K(ish), and 3584K), even though my usual memcheck is over 1.25GB (1 x 1GB RAM stick, 1 x 512MB RAM stick)

I've tried every combination of IDE connection, including simply unplugging everything and plugging solely the HDD into the IDE1 port.

Simply put, when I first connected the PC back up in the new case I copied it EXACTLY as the old case.

In addition, the bios check screen is not as crystal clear as it normally is. There are strange symbols/artefacts littered around the screen.

I have a keyboard and nothing else plugged in, although the BIOS setup utility does not appear if I press F1 or DEL.

Any help is extremely appreciated!!

Cheers

Hi.

I recently Purchased a new case and Powersupply to make way for my new Graphics Card.

I have moved everything from the old case to the new one and installed the new powersupply.

Now the new case connecter's were drastically different from my old one (I went from a Fujitsu-Siemens Case - to an Aerocool Case)

I plugged everything in where i believed they should go and powered up.

Now when i turnt he power supply ont he PC goe's straight into Bootup, it doesn't wait for me to press the power button.

The PC goe's throught he Bios page and onto the Hardware addresses page, Boot from CD comes up twice then the screen changes to go into Window's but it never gets there it just goe's black and Hangs.

Soi took everything that connects the case to the Mobo of (Except the Power Switch) i.e Speaker connections, Firewire, USB etc and booted and still the same.

So i try and enter the Setup or Safe mode but i realise my Keyboard isn't active.

I know the keyboard works (Im using it to write this).

ANy Ideas?

Now the first time i connected it up to the PC screen and turned it on it actually got to the windows Login page but the mouse wouldn't work so i turned it of and on and then got this problem.

Double check the Power switch/Reset/Speaker/HDD indicator/Power indicator wires are plugged in the correct places. Sometimes the diagrams are not real clear on exactly which pins are the right ones for each. Check the jumpers on the MB to ensure they all are set to what the book says. Could be a jumper fell off or was not set properly.

Hi,
I have just recently bought a new case for my desktop as it was having overheat problems.
The new case has 4 cooling fans.
Once everything was connected and turned on I noticed a horrible static type noise from the speakers that stays at the same volume no matter where the volume has been set.
I use a M-Audio 2496 sound card. I thought it had blown. So removed it and reloaded the onboard drivers. Still the noise.
The static noise seems to come about with hard drive activity. i.e. the flashing hard drive light?
The new case fans have LEDS. Could this cause a problem?
The hard drive holder mounts the drives on rubber stops. I thought maybe they needed to be earthed, but when i touched an earth cable to the 2 hard drives , no difference.
Appreciate any help?

There is the ability to change font type, size and color but it only seems to effect messages you draft, I don't see anyway to change the font of received messages.

If the Win 8 mail app doesn't work the way you want, why don't you install a different mail client? Personally, I use Windows Live Mail but the are others such as Thunderbird. This may not be an option for you if you are running an RT version of Windows 8 since you are limited to whatever mail clients are available in the Windows store.

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 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:

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.

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.

Hello,

I have just upgraded my case - the PSU in the old case went and when I went to get a replacement he hadn't the size (physically) the one I needed so ended up buying a new case, the problem is that the new case is a lot larger than the one I had, so therefore I have purchased a 80mm case fan to put into it, the question is which way do you put them in i.e. to draw air into the case or to pull air out of the case, also there is an option to put the fan at the front or the back, which is best? Also would two fans be better than one?

A:Solved: Which Case

Both cases are good... the $280 case is for a different market.

If you want a nice large case for room... cooling, low-noise... impressive.... Check out the Mozart TX... I've enjoyed building these things. You'll spend a lot of time making it look good. Not bad for $225~$250 - depending on model.

PS: I don't think much of SLI or CF. A couple of ATI 4670x2 cards could be deadly

Hey folks, I purchased a new Cooler Master 690 case and it arrived with NO standoffs. Searching the Cooler Master site is useless so my question; does anyone have that case and if so can you tell me what size standoffs were included? (That's if they actually were included )

Maybe someone who has done a build with that case?

Just in case you ask it'll be used with a Gigabyte GA-EP45 UD3L. I need the size because it'll be a 2 hour drive to FRYs to get a set and I want to make just one trip.

Thanks

I want to buy a new computer case, one with a clear side or the whole thing completely see through so i can put in LED fans and light up cables and so on. I don't know where to begin to look because i don't want something that all my computer things wont fit into. I was talking to my friend and he said i had to check my power supply or something for ATX or EATX or something like that and i don't feel like taking it apart because there is a fan exhaust tunnel in the way. I have a Dell Dimension 3000. Ive looked for specs about this on websites but cant seem to find any. Any info on my computer and or sites with such cases would be appreciated.

Alright guys and ladies,

Em i own a thermaltake Xaser III case

http://www.thermaltake.com/product/Chassis/fulltower/xaser3/2000a.asp

This case is 3 years old, in the next month or so i'm going to start a new build!

Going to get a new mobo and i7 and everything else hd's,ram ect ect.

My worry is that the cooling of this case may not be as good as i need, i got this case 3 years ago so the cooling needs of processers was bit differnet back in 2006!

So the question is, should i get a new case or will this one do everything i need????
Any input would be great thanks

Leon
 

A:Solved: Hey need some input on a case

Should be OK but something like this provides some serious cooling.

Really hate to add to the workload here... appears everyone is having this problem! Am I the only one wondering why the heck we're using Microsoft products?

Anyway... this is where I am...
Dell computer, Windows home edition XP, SP1
Experience: Reasonable... May need help on some things, but have pretty good computer/xp skills
I seem to have both the VX2 and CWS installed here.

I've been able to barely keep these rogue programs down to a minimum by constantly running spybot and several others, but I'd swear someone is watching what I'm doing and working in some way to stop me from fixing it. Is that possible? For instance, I run spybot... at first it was just deleting the problems it found. Now it deletes a couple, and I have to keep telling it to delete more, hitting the button to do so several times. At that point, it deletes one, and I have to keep repeating the process till are are "deleted", which of course, they are not.

I ran Silent Runner at one point, and it worked. I later tried it again, and I got this message: "This script requires "WMI", Windows Management Instrumentation to run. It can be downloaded at: http://tinyurl.com/7wd7 Press "OK" to direct your browser to the download site or "cancel" to quit." I downloaded the file, and went to run it, and got this message, "Unsupported platform: This version of the WMI Core Components is only supported on Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 or lat... Read more
