Fixing the BruDirect “White Page of Nothingness” Problem

So previously I had written about “Fixing BruDirect’s Grey Container of Emptiness” but it seems that the workaround of decreasing the font size does not work any longer (doesn’t work in Chromium / Chrome). So the BruDirect problem now has slightly changed: fro grey container of emptiness to the white box of nothingness as shown below.

The Fix:

  • Install this user style I created
  • You can install it in Chromium / Chrome by just clicking the link and installing as a user script (it can be later uninstalled from the Extensions page). Firefox users can use GreaseMonkey to install user scripts.
  • Alternatively you can use Stylish (Firefox extension, Chromium / Chrome extension). I had some problems with Stylish for Chrome. Chrome Stylist can be used for manually editing the fix.
  • For the advanced users who just want the CSS snippet to fix it, it is as follows:
    @-moz-document domain('') {
        #horiz-menu li, #horiz-menu li .link 
        { font-size: 11px; } 

So after the fix is installed, Brudirect should work again

Acer Aspire One eRecovery Issues: “The system is not fully installed. Please run setup again”

Having a problem restoring from a recovery partition?
Getting an error saying “The system is not fully installed. Please run setup again.” after the recovery partition copies the files to a partition and reboots?
Make sure the recovery partition is set to hidden.
Use a Gnome Partition Editor or a Linux boot CD to do so.

Hardware mauled Nokia 3110c

So I finally got sick of the fact that I bought a 2.5mm to 3.5mm stereo jack adapter that couldn’t fit in my phone due to the combination of the connector end being too wide and the phone connector having a ‘cover plate’ on it such that it is recessed (like the iPhone’s headphone jack). So my phone is a bit more naked (after taking off the cover for the USB connector as well) but as long as it’s easier to use.

A crashing Enterprise Manager

Got this when opening Enterprise Manager?
Crashing Enterprise Manager

SQL Version: SQL 2000 Developer Edition DB Server

  • Go to “C:\Documents and Settings\[user profile]\Application Data\Microsoft\MMC”
  • Rename/Delete “SQL Server Enterprise Manager”
  • Re-open Enterprise Manager

Source from as below

I have researched this, and I do not find a direct solution.

There are issues with Enterprise Manager and XP but usually they do not let the user open EM. You don’t have that problem. Your mmc works except when checking the properties of a database.

You probably do not have problems with other mmcs (IIS Server – you can open properties, yes?). From the online reading, many discussed conflicts between the XP version of mmc and the older SQL Server version.

Solutions that have worked for others:


From windows explorer, browse to the “MMC” folder under C:\Documents and Settings\[user_profile]\Applicaiton Data\Microsoft\ (This is a hidden folder and to be able to view it you must show hidden files and folders in the “Tools” –> “Folder Options” –> “View” settings). There should be a file named “SQL Server Enterprise Manager”. You can either delete or rename this file (I prefer the latter). MMC will re-create this file the next time you access Enterprise Manager and should then be working properly.


Kindly install the mmc again from your XP cd and type the following in

expand F:\i386\mmc.ex_ %systemroot%\system32\mmc.exe
here f is the cd drive. There is a space between the d and
F and between the _ and %.


Go to the Run from the Start menu and type mmc and press enter to open an empty console. Under the File menu select “Add/Remove Snap-in”. Click “Add” under Console Root and select the “Microsoft SQL Enterprise Manager” snap-in. Close windows until you are back to the mmc, and you can rename the “console1.msc” to default name which is “SQL Server Enterprise Manager.MSC” and save it under C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn (Default location of SQL Server 2000).

If all else fails,

There is a new MMC.exe 3.0 for XP.

You can try these solutions. Again, I do not see any solutions for your issue exactly. I also read the list of hotfixes after SP4 and did not see anything that addressed the issue.
