A program that shows Manufacture date?

Q: A program that shows Manufacture date?

One of my hard drives just failed after years of reliable service. A lot of valuable information was lost.

To avoid this in the future, it would be helpful to know just how old a drive is to know when it's time to be replaced.

Is there a program that can tell me when I drive was manufactured?

Preferred Solution: A program that shows Manufacture date?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: A program that shows Manufacture date?

Drive age doesn't really have much to do with 'drive failures'. Time in service increases the risk, but it's not a defining factor either.

The HDD should have a sticker on it showing date of manufacture. I don't know of a program.

I have a harddrive that was given to me without any software installed. How can I find the manufacture date of that harddive...it's not listed anywhere on the outside.
 

A:Manufacture date

If there is no information on the HD (which there should be) you might be able to install it as a slave and use a program like Sandra to gain some info on it.

The serial/model number and the website of the manufacturer would be a place to start looking. In this case IBM.com?

A:Date of manufacture estimate help

Hi: Looking at the serial number, your notebook was made in 2011 in the 42nd week of the calendar year as shown in the 142 of the serial number. The 1 is the last digit of the year (2011) and the 42 is the week of manufacture.

dlkegarise See here for the release date. For the serial number the typical format is to have the 4th, 5th, and 6th characters to reference when the product was built.  The first character is the year date (Y) and the next two (WW), the week in that year it was made. CCSYWWZZZZ   Hope this helps you and anwsers your questions.  Regards.

Is there a website that lists the manufacture/release date of various brandname video cards ?

I want to know which video card is "newer" than the others and in what order (date wise) were the cards released. In this manner I can learn what model has the latest technology vs a previous model.

Surfing eBay and trying to decide which card is newer than the others is impossible and reviewing the ATI and NVidia websites doesn't help either (unless I've overlooked one of their webpages that provides the info I am seeking).

Can anyone help ?

Thanks !

Hello, i bought my acer laptop with windows 7 and recently upgraded it to windows 10. I want to enhance and optimize the system by formatting it.

If i do the factory reset from the acer eRecovery Management, will it downgrade the system to windows 7 with all the acer-factory-programs or will it keep windows 10 with all the factory programs?

It's crucial not to miss these programs cause i can't find and download all of them via acer's site. It doesnt include programs for old-supported laptops (like mines).

Hello,

I have been searching on how to correct this error. When I open Windows 7 Backup Program, I'm getting the "Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM"?

I have been changing it to eveyday at 6 p.m. and run the backup.

After a reboot it changes back to "Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM"?

This has just started sometime in the last month.

I have seen this question posted in Microsoft's Forum but can not find the fix. The last answer to this common error is use a different backup software. I'd prefer to stick with Windows backup.

Does anyone know if this bug has ever been squashed?

Thank You!

A:Next backup date shows as 12/30/1899 12:00 AM

Hello Rockit,

Double check to make sure that your time and date, time zone, and BIOS CMOS date is set properly.

Also, check in Task Scheduler (taskschd.msc) as below, to see what the AutomaticBackup task's "Trigger" date is set as, and change if needed.Task Scheduler Library\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsBackup




In addition, you could see if resetting Windows Backup to default, then set up a new backup to hopefully sort this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I flashed the BIOS to A04 some months ago and never paid much attetion to it. The flash said it was successful. But when I looked at System Properties, it gives the BIOS date as 10/21/2010; the BIOS was released 10/31/2011. Is this correct? It seems that date is older than BIOS A02.
 

A:Studio XPS 9100 BIOS A04 shows date of 10/21/2010

I only run a bios update to fix a specific issue. If you just went to A04 because it was newer, I wouldn't worry about the date thing. Now, if your correcting a specific issue, try reflashing A04. But understand, if the bios update fails, your motherboard is bricked.

A:Time/Date Stamp in XP shows 1 day and 1 hour difference

The problem is not the time difference itself.
The big question is, how is it possible that the program takes the time from Windows, displays it correctly in the program, saves the files with the correct time and date, but shows in Windows Epxlorer to be created on a total different moment ?
The exact same program is installed on many more computers and they don't have this problem.
I have replaced the program, Windows, HDD and the computer motherboard without success.
Could it be a virus causing this ?

This is a windows 7 sp1 x64 machine.

Slingbox has a support and forum for their products. As everything else works, it looks like either a bad install or a configuration issue with that software.

Depending on computer/laptop model that logo/splash might be hard or not possible to remove.
What splash screen can it be then... Art for art's sake...

Seems you've already posted this on DELL's site.

I'm guessing this splash screen s from Windows 8: date time included. Is not related to the BIOS.

This one is called lock screen, pretty useless because it's just for the looks, requires an extra key press... reduces productivity.
Forget this BIOS stuff below if this is the one bothering you.
To disable it:
How to Disable the Lock Screen on Windows 8 Without Using Group Policy
In case of BIOS splash see below:
The site you linked looks weird here, just in case here's the info:






For Dell? Inspiron? 3700 and 3800 Systems.
There is no option in the BIOS to disable the splash screen. Pressing the <Esc> key will have No effect on the splash screen either.
For Dell? Inspiron? 3500, 5000, 7500, and 7000 Systems.
Pressing the <Esc> key will remove the Dell splash screen temporarily. To permanently disable the Dell splash screen:

After you power on the system, but before the operating system begins to load, press the <F2> key to enter the System Setup Program.
The System Setup Program screen appears. At the bottom of the screen will be instructions on how to navigate the menus.Use the <Arrow> keys to navigate to the Main screen.Change the Quiet Boot option to Disabled.

NOTE: When Quiet Boot is set to Disabled, it allows Power On Self Test (POST) messages and the summary screen to appear at system start-up. When Quiet Boot is set to Enabled (default), it prevents the diagnostic POST messages and summary screen from appearing at system start-up. If Quiet Boot is enabled, a boot device cannot be selected during start-up.Press the <F10> key and then the <Enter> key to save the changes and exit the program.
For Dell? Inspiron? 3200 and 3000 Systems.
There is no Dell splash screen that comes up on these systems; therefore, the diagnostics screen will display during boot.
For Dell? Latitude? LS Systems.

The method used to disable the Dell splash screen (the screen that displays the Dell logo prior to the operating system loading) will vary by system. Refer to the instructions for your specific system type below.

Hi, we use a program called HomeTech Advantage (it's an estimating software). We have everyone on a workgroup network using a router but don't use network software.

We'd like to set it up so everyone is using the same data & files for this program, so we don't have to copy an estimate file onto a jump drive to put it on another computer.

What's the best way to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance

A:We want everyone to use the same date for a program

The way its usually done is to have one computer set up as the host. then file sharing for the folder that will contain the files.
Example:

So on comp1, the folder is in C:\SomeFolder\EstimatesFolder
Set the EstimatesFolder as Shared and name it Estimates

On each of the other computers, go to map network drive and set a network drive like H: (if its used, do a higher letter) and link it to Estimates. You will probably need the computer name and a user/pass to access the computer so it would be something like this:


H: <-- Select this or another letter from the drop down list of letters
\\comp1\Estimates
(Check mark the remember user/pass)
enter username and pass

I dont know how the software works though, so if it allows you to just select a place to open/save to/from, then you just use H: for the location.

My wife has her separate user account in Windows 10 and I have mine. She needed to download Jobulator for her work. It asked for my password since I am listed as administrator. While she was signed on her account via Windows 10, she downloaded Jobulator. Now, when I sign on to my account I see her program listed and sitting on my screen. It stays on top of other windows and in reality I don't need or require the program. If I delete if from my main Windows screen will it delete it from her use? Thanks for the help.

Hi everyone SevenForums has quite many categories and my issue probably could have been placed in another subforum as well Sorry if this wasn't the right one I'm experiencing a strange problem where on certain programs I can see whatever there is behind them I've mainly had this with Chrome it could also have happened with regular windows not sure of that kind of stuff that happens while you're working w o paying attention to special details at that time The behind content pops in in parts 'transparent' shows behind Kind them program-windows, of whatever - an icon on the desktop and it's barrier surrounding it part of a background programs For example I can sometimes see Foobar 's audio playback software current playing song's like or the visualizations running at the top - in the middle of an internet website Funny isn't it I cannot interact with those popping parts Kind of 'transparent' program-windows, shows whatever behind them though those 'behind' the active window Anyone experienced this problem as well I'd really like to hear suggestions as to how to solve it It's cool actually but could be quite bothersome when you're running something critical Thank you

So our computer has been acting all odd since we bought it. We had bought the same computer a week before this one, but ended up returning it because it wouldn't turn on. Now, I dont know if its just me or the computer but sometimes when you turn it on, the screen has to be turned off and then turned on again, because it'll just show a black screen if you don't. What I'm asking is that whether this is a computer problem that came from the factory from which the computer was processed, or if it's a problem that i made happen by accidently damaging my computer during the setup.

If its a problem that was already there, and cant be fixed, should i return it?

Hello, I recently restored my computer to the origianl manufacture settings and found I lost my wildtangent games I have already purchased. How can I replace them? I tried downloading and than I entered my unlock code but It wouldn't accept this. Is there anything I can do?
 

A:Restored to manufacture

When you restore something to the original manufacture settings, you're basically deleting everything on your computer, and starting over again. If you're sure that your unlock codes aren't right, then try contacting Wildtangent, or wherever you downloaded the games from, and explain your situation to them, you're going to end up needing a new unlock code, and that's something we can't give you.

A:Msmsgs Virus Program Install Date: Sat June 21 2042

Hello kctate, I am SifuMike and I will be helping you. You will need to use Internet Explorer for this scan. Disable your antivirus program and go here to run BitDefender Online Scan. Click on I Agree. Avoid clicking on other links as you don't need to try out the full install at this point, just the online scanner.When the ActiveX Control has loaded, click on "Click here to scan". Please be patient, as this scan may take a few hours. It all depends on the number of files on your computer. NOTE: If you are running XP SP2, you may need to click on the Information Bar to allow the ActiveX to install and may need to repeat the BitDefender Online Scan.When BitDefender completes the scan, select the "Detected Problems" tab. Click on "Click here to export scan". Save the file as an HTML to your Desktop. Then click on the saved file and allow it to open with your browser. Go to Edit - Select All then copy/paste that log back here. Post the BitDefender log.******************Download and install AVG Anti-Spyware v7.5.After download, double click on the file to launch the install process. Choose a language, click "OK" and then click "Next".Read the "License Agreement" and click "I Agree".Accept default installation path: C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5, click "Next", then click "Install".After setup completes, click "Finish" to start the program automatically or launch AVG Anti-Spyware by double-clicking its icon on your desktop or in the system tray.Connect to the Internet, go back to AVG Anti-Spyware, select the "Update" button and click "Start update". Wait until you see the "Update successful" message. If you are having problems with the updater, manually update with the AVG Anti-Spyware Full database installer from here. Exit AVG Anti-Spyware when done - DO NOT perform a scan yet.Reboot your computer in "SAFE MODE" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode". (Note: When run in safe mode, sometimes the GUI is larger than the screen and the buttons at the bottom are partly or completely hidden, making them unaccessible for doing a scan. If this is the case, press the WINKEY + M key to "Minimize" the AVG display. Then right-click on AVG in the Task Bar and select "Maximize". If that does not help, then you may have to run your scan in normal mode and advise your helper afterwards.)Scan with AVG Anti-Spyware as follows:Click on the "Scanner" button and choose the "Settings" tab.Under "How to act?", click on "Recommended actions" and choose "Quarantine" to set default action for detected malware.Under "How to Scan?", "Possibly unwanted software", and What to Scan?" leave all the default settings.Under "Reports" select "Do not automatically generate reports" and UNcheck "Only if threats were found".Click the "Scan" tab to return to scanning options.Click "Complete System Scan" to start.When the scan has finished, it should automatically be set to Quarantine--if not click on Recommended Action and set it there.You will also be presented with a list of infected objects found. Click "Apply all actions" to place the files in Quarantine.IMPORTANT! Do not save the report before you have clicked the Apply all actions button. If you do, the log that is created will indicate "No action taken", making it more difficult to interpret the report. So be sure you save it only AFTER clicking the "Apply all actions" button.Click on "... Read more

Hi there @Johnknow, May the Forums be with you!  I understand that you are looking for information on two power adapters.   I am happy to help with this. It is likely just a revision number. A long as both adapters have the same input voltages, and the same output voltage and current, and the same type of power connector they are functionally identical.  It could be a regionalization issue where one comes with a different type of plug, such as the North American version, versus the UK version, or European version, etc. Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

I was just wondering has anyone know if this is true? That XFX will be stopping production of its ATI Radeon 5770 graphics card range?

Because i bought one back in November last year and it screwed up a few days after i got it (i believe due to the fact i didn't have a big enough power supply), and sent it back to the place i bought it first week for January for warranty replacement. i called them up after 3 weeks (like 20th Jan) and they said that it could be 2-6 weeks before the supplier would be getting it back in stock. Then today i go a call from the place i bought it from saying that the card was no longer getting manufactured.

So is this true? because it seems quite strange that it is already stopping production after only coming out in October/November.

Installed Win 7 Pro x86 last night on a new HD. After installing SP1, restarting freezes at the Gateway boot screen and I have to hit the power button to shut off, then turn back on. There are no alerts in device manager, so I don't believe this is a driver issue. Everything else seems to be working fine, so I don't think the HD is bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I was given an HP laptop with vista and it is very slow to start up. I was uninstalling some programs and I sort by date so I can see the crap that was recently installed... the "installed on" date was there and now its not. It shows name and size but date is gone now. Anyone know why it went away and how to get it back? It may seem stupid but I like to know the date so I don't accidently uninstall anything that was installed by HP and may be essential.

Also any advice or programs on how to start up faster... I have run virus scan with avast, ran spybot, deleted startup entries, cleanup, defrag. Anything else I can do?

Thanks!

hello negan1234,

Most of the programs installed by HP are not essential, and usually just hog system resources... If you want help deciding what to install and what not to, you can ask and we will gladly help.

As for the date... I just looked at my Programs and Features snap in and it doesn't show the install date for all of the programs. Some are blank.

Hey everyone,

Recently, I have noticed that every time I properly shut down my laptop, I keep getting the pop up saying "Waiting for Background Program to Close."

The box doesn't even list the program that needs to close. (Can this be a virus)
Furthermore, if I wait a few seconds, it will shut down automatically, I don't need to click "Force Close"....

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm helping a friend upgrade her computer and one of the things I did was helped her acquire and install a copy of Personal Office 365, which includes Outlook 2016. She's been doing her email on Outlook.com until now but now wants to use Outlook 2016.

I'm trying to figure out how to make all her various folders and email visible in Outlook 2016 but have no idea how to do it; I have very little experience with either Outlook or Outlook.com.

Can someone tell me what I need to do? It would be absolutely fine to point me to a tutorial; I just don't know what search term to use with Google. I have to assume this is a simple, routine thing that millions of people have done. I just don't know where to find instructions.

Hi. Here's a little info on Outlook files:
Introduction to Outlook Data Files (.pst and .ost) - Outlook

Your pst/ost file needs to be located and copied, (for a backup). You then export it through the O2013 program, and import it to the new outlook 2016.

Edit: no, wait - she was using Outlook.com? hmmm.....now I have to think about that. I think you can just setup the account in O2016, and everything should sync?

I'm working on a spreadsheet that lists monthly recurring expenses. I have one cell on the sheet listing the current date (using the "=Now()" formula), but I'd like to have the other cells change at certain times throughout the month.

For example, if one cell currently says "April-15", when the actual date reads "April-16", the respective cell would change to "June-15". This way, whenever the spreadsheet is viewed the next recurring payment date will be seen.

I know this is the wrong tool for something like this - I'm using SharePoint at the office with a calendar list with workflows that shoot off emails in a much better put together format - but this is just for home use and I'd like to keep it all in one document if possible.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

A:Excel 2010: Cell Date Change with Current Date

The way I read it was that you have fixed recurring payment dates, so you just want to know the next date based on the day today. Hope the attached might assist.
You need to list the payment dates somewhere and then the formula looks up the next date. You might want to look up today plus 1 (or something) to reflect the fact that if the next payment date is today, there's a good chance you'll not get any unplanned payments on that run.

That is actually a date value that Excel provides.

That's how many days it's been since 1/1/1900.

To change it to a real date, you should be able to select that cell or entire column, hit Format-Cell, Number tab, and choose Date, and then any one of the date formats.

Julian dates are what numbered day of the year. For instance, January 3, 2002 would be 3.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am looking to set up a macro or formula that basically inserts the current time when a cell is filled SO:

when a2:a100 is populated with any thing then the corresponding C cell will be populated with the time.

AND

when e2:e1000 is populated wiith anything then the corresponding D Cell will be populated.

Currently I am using this macro.
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Cells.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A6:A100")) Is Nothing Then
With Target(1, 4)
.Value = Time
.EntireColumn.AutoFit
End With
End If
End Sub

which works great for the A and C cells

but it does not work for the other one.. how do i add and modify this so all my needs are met.
I need another 2 sets of 2 macros accross the sheet for time entry.

I am using the "microsoft access date/ time picker" control to pick dates. These dates like termination date of a contract will end up in the database. The problem I have is that when I do this,

rst!dateIntoForce = Me!ActiveXCtlDOForce

I end up with this in my database:

1/6/2003 5:48:43 PM

How can I extract only the date part from "1/6/2003 5:48:43 PM" so that only

1/6/2003

goes into the database
Thanks

The AVG on my Dell thinks the Virus database is out of date even though it has the most current update?

How can I change the date back and what might have caused this to happen in the first place. I've heard of some AVG update problem but didn't find much relevant information on it.

Any suggestion or links would be great.

Thanks,

Hi there I know how to do add a criteria to a Query For example in the QBE pane in design view in the criteria row I enter this statement Between Start Date And End Date When I open up the form that is bound to the query a message box a Access - Criteria in form Date Start and Date End pops up and I enter the required dates and I get the required data that is between the dates that I specify However I m now finding out that this method is now becoming a nuisance Is there a way that I can have unbound controls - one for the start date and the other for the end date in a criteria form This way I input the dates I want for a particular customer and the form with the required data shows up For example I have already developed a criteria form for customers I have an unbound combo box control that has customer names and when I click on a particular customer name all the data for that Access - Start Date and End Date in a Criteria form customer is displayed in a form In the row source of the unbound combo box control there is a SELECT FROM statement I also have a button next to the unbound combo box control that opens up the form for that particular customer Now I want Access - Start Date and End Date in a Criteria form to add two more Unbound controls in the criteria form one for Start Date and another for End Date This way I can select a customer from the customer combo Box select the start start date from the start date combo box and the end date from the second combo box control and get the desired data for that particular customer between the specified dates I have attempted to do this but without success Is this possible to do If so can someone please tell me how to do it - BE SPECIFIC SINCE I M NO EXPERT HERE Thanks Mario nbsp

Hello. I have a cell on my spread sheet which calculates an earliest date due. The cell references other cells to achieve this and looks like this '=C51+(F8*7)' where cell C51 is a date field in the format DD/MM/CCYY and contains the date 26/12/2015. And cell F8 is a number field which contains the value '4'. This value '4' is indicating a number of weeks. So the calculation (F8*7) gets me the number of days and I then add those days to the date in cell C51 to get 23/01/2016.I want this cell to output the current date if the calculation above results in a date that is in the past. Can anyone tell me if there is a simple way to achieve this? Thank you.

A:Excel: Substitute a past date with the current date

If I understand you correctly, this should get you what you want:=IF("your calculation"< TODAY(),TODAY(),"your calculation")However, the TODAY() will update every day to always show the current date, assuming "your calculation" results in a date that is in the past.In other words, it will not lock in the first date it calculates. It will always display "today's" date.Is that what you want to see?One other issue: As explained at the link below, the TODAY() function is "volatile". That means that is will recalculate every time the sheet calculates, even if none of the arguments have changed. A large number of volatile functions can slow a worksheet down.https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/li...Volatile and Non-Volatile Functions

Excel supports the concept of a volatile function, that is,
one whose value cannot be assumed to be the same from one
moment to the next even if none of its arguments (if it
takes any) has changed. Excel reevaluates cells that contain
volatile functions, together with all dependents, every time
that it recalculates. For this reason, too much reliance on
volatile functions can make recalculation times slow. Use them
sparingly.

The following Excel functions are volatile:

NOW
TODAY
RAND
OFFSET
INDIRECT
INFO (depending on its arguments)
CELL (depending on its arguments)Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

I have a Date/Time field that I need converted to just a Time field.

It comes back with 2/11/12 0:00:00

I need just the 2/11/12

I thought about changing it to a text field but I think there will be an issue with the month because it does not bring back a 0 in from the months with only 1 digit.

This table that I am creating is being sent to a txt file and that is where I see the issue. It looks good in Access, but not the txt file.

Any suggestions?

Hello,

I have a large report of application forms which have been submitted including the date when they were submitted however the dates are formatted incorrectly.

1. Although the cell formatting is dd/mm/yyyy the data is being shown in mm/dd/yyyy which means the dates are incorrect (e.g. 2nd January would read as 1st February.)
2. As a result of this dates which are passed the 12th of a month are not accepted as dates (it reads the day figure as months and there is no 13th month etc)

I have tried to use the text to columns function but that makes no difference and I have tried to extract just the dates but I've had no luck.

Can anyone help, I've attached a small sample of the data.

Thanks

Daniel

So I have this excel spreadsheet and an example of it basically looks like this:

Project Phase Person Capacity Start Date End Date
A Design 1 25% 1/15 3/16
A Model 1 25% 3/17 5/11
A Design 2 25% 1/15 3/16
A Model 2 25% 3/17 5/11

I'm looking to track a monthly outlook of capacity % over time for each person (in a pivot table), but I'm unable to get it exactly the way it should be. Essentially I would like it to look like this below:

Dates
Person Jan Feb Mar Apr May
1 25% 25% 25% 25% 25%
2 25% 25% 25%

(Sorry, the text keeps left aligning so person 2 should actually have 25% under Mar, Apr, and May.)

Is this even possible, either in a pivot table, or even using formulas?

Excel 2013 and Windows 10 Pro

Today is May-14

Date format is set to show: Mar-16
Pressing Ctrl+; shows: 05 14 2016 in the cell
and it converts to: May-16 after I exit that cell.

Any ideas as to how to fix this or why it adds 2 days to the date?

I don't do much on computer now because of health but when I do and there is a problem, I know some of the experts are here.

Thank you in advance, Ron
 

A:Excel Date shortcut posts proper date and then changes

Hey Ron,

This should be a fairly simple one. I'd hazard a guess and say the May-16 is the month and year rather than the month and day.
If you click the format drop down as shown below, and click the last option for more formatting options.

In the box that pops up, navigate to Custom using the left hand panel to navigate.
Here you can make your own (or use a preset if you wish) format to suit your needs.

Here is a quick key to help you get by:
dd = Day in Number format
ddd = Day in Short text
dddd = Day in Long text
mm = Month in Number format
mmm = Month in Short text
mmmm = Month in Long text
yy = year in 2 digits
yyyy = year in 4 digits

You can separate these with pretty much whatever you want.
All of this data is input into the "Type" field as shown in the picture above.

See the picture for an example, Ironically it is May 16th today so it will appear the same as your issue does, but rest assured, as long as you have those D's in there, it will display the day!

Best of luck,
Let us know how you get on,

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

I read a bit about going into the bios and looking for a "memory remapping" setting but there was not one.
I also unchecked the box for max memory in msconfig > boot > advanced options.

Any suggestions would be great!
