    "IMAGE RESIZER" - MS Power Toys Alternative???

    UPDATE ................................... Decided to try the "Codeplex" resize utility that Shay posted above. It works great ... exactly like the old MS Power Toys resizer from XP days. Right click context menu using Windows Explorer ... easy peasy ... LOVE IT. BUNCHES OF THANKS TO SHAY, and all others who also gave of their time and effort to try and help me out on this. Love all you guys! Cheers, Mrs. B ======================================================

    "IMAGE RESIZER" - MS Power Toys Alternative???

    Thanks to BC and Shay! I will check out the links you sent ... appreciate your replies! Oopps, my bad ................. Just realized I forgot to include the words "Batch Process" to the resize capability. That seems to be where the snag lies ... almost any graphic program with resize, but getting it done in "batches" is the hang-up. In Power Toys, you could select a group (large or small) of images in Windows Explorer, then right click to bring up the Power Toy "batch" feature. I will do some more digging and also give a try to the suggestions you both have offered. Many thanks!

  4. I loved the old "Image Resizer" that MS had in "Power Toys" back in the days of XP. Looking for something similar that is SAFE, SECURE, AND FREE, and will work in Windows 7. Any suggestions? Thanks much!

    MOTHERBOARD FRIED ???

    All posts are always welcome in my threads ... I usually always learn something from all of them. Thanks for all the informational links you provided in your post here. I will take a look at all of them tomorrow as time permits. My daughter is DYING, BEGGING, CRYING, STANDING ON HER HEAD wanting an Apple. She hates PCs and Windows. Her plan right now is a new MAC by early summer as soon as her income tax refund comes along. We'll see ... ???

    MOTHERBOARD FRIED ???

    Shay and Ski52 ..................... Oh Lordy, now I'm really confused. Have never seen a MB, didn't know they were so complex with so many possible areas for potential trouble. I'm thankful this is not my computer, don't know how in the world I'd deal with such a problem. The good out of this is that I've finally convinced my daughter NOT to let this guy do anymore work on it or give him anymore money. She paid him $20 for the diagnostic and picked up the unit. She going to take it to a better and more respected shop and get a second opinion. Thanks again to everyone who has offered advice, suggestions, and help. You guys are all super and you are very much appreciated.

    MOTHERBOARD FRIED ???

    OK, thanks for the tip about transferring the picture, etc. herself. I shall explain that to her. SO MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR VERIFICATION ABOUT "NOT MOTHERBOARD". She is being so damn stubborn and saying I am just "suspicious" of everyone! I'm about to tell her to figure it all out by herself. Thanks again. ===========================================================================

    Michael ................... Here are a couple of screenshots that may shed some light on the situation. I don't see where it says the motherboard is fried, but hey, what do I know? LOL And if the MB is dead, how did the tech get the machine turned on in order to even run this test? Personally, I smell stinky fish. This first one is the original error message she got on the screen after the power outage first occured. This second one is the diagnostic printout from the computer repair shop today.

    MOTHERBOARD FRIED ???

    Michael ... Sorry to ask another question ... I truly planned on just that one, but my daughter thought I should explain what happened in the beginning that led to this motherboard fiasco. A couple of weeks ago there was a severe power outage in my daughter's neighborhood. Power was out for something like 10-12 hours and when she turned the computer back on the next day, a message came up on her monitor saying that there was "no signal". The computer was running and seemed to be OK, except just nothing on the monitor screen. She tried for days and days plugging and unplugging cables and connections ... in the wall, out of wall, in and out of the surge protector power-strip, plugging and unplugging and messing with the antenna on the modem, etc. etc., resetting the modem, and so on and so forth. She never could get a picture of any kind except the error message that there was no signal. A friend told her that the power outage may have destroyed the video card, so that is when she took it to the shop. They said the video card was fine but the motherboard was dead. They want to sell her a new MB, plus more $$$ to "salvage" what files are still viable and put them on a DVD for her to transfer to another machine that she has. They "say" there are only 14 GB still intact and they want $60.00 to "save" them. I don't know what they quoted her for a new MB, but I do know that it won't be a decent one like the original that was in the machine when it was new. Thanks again.

    MOTHERBOARD FRIED ???

    Hi Michael ................... I was pretty sure I was right, but needed to double-check. Some computer tech at a low-end computer repair shop is trying to "pull the wool" on my daughter. I told her he was full of "it", but she didn't believe me. Thanks very much for confirming my thoughts. ========================================================
  14. Would I be right or wrong if I said that if a motherboard is fried, then a computer will not even turn on? Thanks.
