Hi there, What is the brand and model of your ;aptop? And what is the model of your graphics card? Cheers, Jospeh _____ From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Siobhan Sent: Sunday, May 06, 2007 7:34 AM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: new laptop and jaws trouble. Hi everyone. I was on this list awhile back, I've since upgraded to jaws eight, latest updated from April 26. Here's what's going on: if I close my laptop lid, then open it back up, jaws won't read the system tray, just says no selected item. If I click on an item like skype, using the letter s it opens. I've set the laptop to do nothing when I close the lid, I've even turned off hibernation. Also is anyone else having a problem where jaws will stop reading the fields of mesages in outlook express? Again I find this when I close the lid of the laptop. Now for the specs, windows xp home, two gig of ram, 80 gb hard drive. If anyone can fix this I would be ecstatic. Thanks for the help, I apologize if there are any errors, no spell check on my new This is a dell inspiron fifteen o one I think.system yet.
