    yeah, windows update says there are no new updates, ran it several times... have no idea, but nbc.com comes up as "cannot display"

    I don't know if it's just me, but when I try to make youtube video into fullscreen i only see half screen of black and half of gray divided in diagonals. Does anyone know the solution to this problem?

    Hmm, haven't tried that but it works now. I went into display settings and lowered the color settings to 16bits. I am going to reinstall flash and see if it works with 32bits.

    Edit. Reinstalling flash makes it work on 32 bits. Thanks miner. :D

    And I'd say it's the website, but I've tried it on other computers and it's loaded perfect.... the only two that won't load it are my TX2110US and my new TX2500...

    under internet options, under advance tab, reset it. It worked for me.

    nbc.com won't load on my tablet...

    after doing some research it seems someone found that the nbc website is re-directing tablet users to the mobile site or possibly the wap website. This is probably based on the User Agent property IE gives off to the website and the bad coding on their end.

    a workaround is..

    you can try

    http://www.nbci.com

    or I found this (untested)

    [cut off web]

    This is a band-aid but remove the following registry key, delete the IE cache, and close all browsers and http://www.nbc.com starts working again.

    HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Internet Settings>5.0>User Agent>Post Platform>Tablet PC 2.0

    [cut]

    this will just probably remove tablet pc 2.0 from the User Agent variable when connecting to websites...

    for example right now my user agent is set at

    Your User Agent is: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; Tablet PC 2.0)

    deleting that last bit should take off Tablet PC 2.0

    hope that helps..
