Preferred Solution: How to create every month collector on 1st of month

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Yes, it's doable. The layout (wiring) can be two variation:


modem == router----pc----NAS/hd's
+------- other devices

modem == router1---- pc

Whether wired or wifi connected, the controls are similar - - which layout to you favor?

Which RAID Configuration are you in? I think you may have have it set up incorrectly. Depending on what RAID you are using will depend on how your drives can be used. Let us know what RAID you are running which you should be able to find this in your RAID control panel when you boot into it. Thanks.

Help please?

I have recently moved to a rented property and have had fibre broadband installed. The hub is next to the modem which had to be placed at the main telecom entry point to the house. This means that the hub and modem are in the sitting room. I want to have my printer upstairs but do not wish to run a cable all the way from the hub to the printer. I do have a couple of old wireless hubs - a Belkin and a 2-Wire. Would it be possible to put one of these upstairs hardwired to the printer and configure one of these to pick up the wireless signal from the new hub? Or am I mad??

A:Using a router to create connection from a wireless network to a wired printer

Is this printer a network printer (has an Ethernet jack)?
Are these hubs or are they switches?

Win XP defragger is having a hard time defragging external USB 2TB drive because of the back up .iso image files on it. What do you think about the cause of this problem and possible solutions? Diskeeper?

A:Should I create a separate drive partition just for .iso files or do I just need a better defragger?


I just realized the actual file type causing this issue is .mrimg , a back up image file created by Macrium Reflect. Some of the big .iso files I have seem to stress the defragger, but at least they're not completely crashing XP and the drive. I end up having to unplug the drive to get XP responding again, even to reboot. I'm pretty convinced it's the .mrinmg file. Not sure if I should create a separate partition just for them, or get a better defragger.

A:Toshiba laptops plays DVDs but can't create them

Just for laughs you should beg or borrow a USB DVD burner and see what happens with that.

I think there are separate read / burn lasers for DVD, but I'm not certain.

In any event, swapping out the drive would vector your search for the problem.

By the way, (IMHO & experience), Toshiba drives suck, and do crazy s*** like this. At least the two I've had certainly did. (2 TSST 162's in Emachines desktop. 1st desktop went back, bad drive, 2nd drive replaced by a Pioneer DVR 111).

A:One month old Acer computer keeps crashing

If it's only a month old and continually crashes, I would be taking it back under warranty, get a replacement. But, does it crash as soon as you are into Windows desktop, or when you open a certain program, or when you try to get on the net?
Does it do the same thing every time, or does it run well sometimes? You can't go checking inside for faulty parts, or your warranty will be void. Tricky.

I have a Linksys WR54GS router as my main router attached to the internet. I run a Bed & Breakfast and I give my guests free access to the internet via WiFi. My problem is, I also use that network for my business and personal computers and I am afraid that a tech savvy guest could hack into my files. I thought that if I connect a second WiFi router, I could set up a second network which my guests could use to access the web thru my main router.

Does anyone have a clue if this is possible?

It mostly depends on the company that is your internet provider... With their sayso, you can do it easily... just be sure the channels are widely different, and that you can control them through your client setups so the customer understands what and where.

I recently setup a network at home for 7 computers between me and my brothers. I've been given the task to setup a server. My questions are?

Would it be easier/better to just setup an old pc to be accessible by the whole network to hold files, or do something different?

I've been reading about NAS setups. Are they worth the money being as though this is just for simple mp3 and various movie format storage.

Comparing redundancy and speed, which one is better for a pc, raid 1+0 or raid 5?

I have a 3 month old 9500 GT that started just this past Monday giving me fuzzy windows on one of my dual monitors. It seems to only give the fuzzy screen on whatever window I have the extended desktop on. The fuzzy screen only happens when the video card is on its highest setting of (1680 x1050) for both screens, however, if I change the extended desktop setting to a smaller resolution the problem goes away. I have updated the drivers to NVIDIA's latest driver but it didn't fix the problem. I am using VGA cables which shouldn't be a problem since it worked for three months. I checked the cables and the monitors on different machines and they all work fine. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.

Raid comes in multiple 'flavors'; raid-0, raid-1, raid-10, raid-5 are a few.

I suggest you see this overview of raid to understand the issues;

Redundancy: That is a Raid-1, Raid-10, or Raid-5 solution.
With the mismatch sizes, you will get a storage space equal to the smallest hd.

The BIG ISSUE for you is you already have data on the HD's. Making the change
to Raid-X will wipeout your data just like a format would, so you need to

offload ALL the user files,
create the Raid with the raid tools or bios setup
reinstall Windows
lastly reload you user data

It is likely that you jumped upon Raid Redundancy as a concept to protect your data without taking backups -- sorry, wrong approach.

Even Raid-1 needs backups!

For most users, we need a good backup process or at least a good File Replication tool.

The concepts are well documented in (albeit a business site, it's still applicable to you)
and the link Replication will show you the simple solution.

Looks decent.

* You can get the video card cheaper if you don't need that exact one. The 9600GTs should be able to be found for ~$130 on Newegg.

* That power supply isn't very good. Look at Corsair's 650W single rail one, or any 475W or above from brands like Enermax, Antec, PC Power&Cooling...

* Probably not worth your money for that CPU cooler. Since you are looking at a Retail CPU it will come with a stock heatsink and fan which will probably be about the same performance as that Rosewill one. If you aren't going to overclock you can get by with the stock heatsink and fan just fine. If you are going to overclock you'll want a better one than the Rosewill.

* I've had a case like that (2 actually) with the rear exhaust fan area being really 2 levels (see here) and its more difficult than it should be to put in a fan because you can't actually hold the screw while you are putting it through 2 of the holes. Its not a HUGE deal, and it can be done, its just harder than I'd like. I would suggest considering any of the tool less cases (which really only mean you don't screw in hds and cd drives) they are much better to work with. The price is slightly higher, but I saved you $20 on the HSF, so maybe look at something like this. Shipping on those things is outrageous, but occationally they will do free shipping, so be on the look out for that. Also if you order from Newegg, they don't charge you shipping for each individual part and add them up, they charge for what it costs to ship them all together. So if you are going to order a case without free shipping it will save you some money overall if you order several other parts at the same time.

I'm re-installing Vista 32Bit on a 250Gb SATA HDD, and want to make 2 partitions on it.

What I'm curious about is if i create say a 125Gb Partition, is that at the beginning {or outer} part of the drive, or is that in the middle?

I want it to be as quick as possible, so shall I use the partition I created, or the unpartitioned space?

Sorry if it seems pedantic, but the boot time is getting ridiculous {I get 5.4 on the "Vista Experience" thingamy so I should be sweet} and I want to milk every bit of speed out of it, if that word can be used in the same sentence as Vista!


A:Windows setup, create partition, start or end of drive?


A partition per se doesnt exist as a physical section, its not like you slice the disk in 2 and say "right all you progs on the inside and all you spare bits on the outside", a program or programs can be split across the entire disk as small chunks with part of the chunk telling the OS where the next bit is located, this is whhy Defrag is used, to take seperated data chunks and move them into a coherant and logical grouping and thus speed up disk reading.

if your boot time is getting slow do the usual things like remove unwanted startup programs and defrag the disk.

A:Font, graphics create shadows but it's not my monitor. Is it the video card?

Same problem here too

I have the same problem here too. Shadows that stretch acrossed the whole monitor horizontally. I bought a new monitor and hooked it up and it did the same thing, so I know it's not the monitor. I have an NVidia GeForce 2 graphics card and run XP. My computer is a 4 1/2 year old Dell Dimension 4100 with a 19" Dell monitor. (still a great computer!)
My colors went way off for a while - so bright they were fluorescent. I adjusted that as best as I could in the NVidia setting control panel. But the colors are still off when I look at the pictures I have on my computer. This just happened all of a sudden.
I have been doing searches on line for days now trying to find help with this. I don't want to do total hard drive wipe out if I don't have to. And if it's just the graphics card, I can replace that. I have wasted hours and hours trying to figure out what is wrong. I have downloaded drivers, changed settings, and done tons of reading. (my Dell Tech Support has run out for this computer so I'm on my own) I'm hoping you can help.
Thanks a bunch.

define new partition

I have bought a TP-LINK TL-WN322G (wireless USB) and I try to set up a WAP using it as a WAP to connect my NOKIA N95 8GB wirelessly to the PC and Internet, but I can't.
Can anyone help me how to do this?
Thanks in advance!

A:Create a Wireless Access Point using Wireless USB

the NOKIA N95 8GB is a phone, and making an encripted connection to it is
dependent upon the phone.

first try to make any connection (ie: without encryption)

btw: the typical means to use a cell phone as an internet connection is to WIRE the device to the system.

You may find that the cell phone running on 2.4 ghz will conflict with the TL-WN322G

A:Trying to create a mini home cinema system

Yes, it is possible.

For whatever reason your graphics card link didn't work, but that doesn't matter. That TV has 2 HDMI inputs and 1 VGA. So depending on your card and preference you can run a DVI to HDMI cable, or a straight up VGA to VGA. Either will look fine since the TV isn't really pushing the VGA resolution hard enough that DVI/HDMI would look better.

The issue I see is with your 5.1 you'll need center channel and stuff set up based around your TV. This will screw up stereo and surround for gaming if you aren't using the TV for that (or have the TV and monitor next to each other).

I suppose you 'might' be able to get around this by splitting the output of your soundcard and running 1 to your 2.1 and one to your 5.1 and just alternate which system is on depending on what you are doing at the time. I'm not sure how all that works since I've never ran a 5.1 system from my computer.

After getting an EA430 at newegg and being very satisfied, it suddenly died on me while playing TF2. It is really weird and forced me to revert back to my old PSU which meant uninstalling my 3850 as well. Should PSUs die so quickly? I thought Antec was a reliable company. Did I just get unlucky and get the 1/100,000 faulty PSU?

A:PSU died after a month

just bad luck
the PSU is good enough for your system
but add another drive and I say you need 500 to 600 watts

Budget 1600-1800 euros.
What I'm planning to get:
Mobo: I have no idea
CPU: E8500 3.16 ghz; This is 45nm If I'm correct (Should be out 20 Januari at 266$ from what I hear)
Graphics Card: NVidia 8800GT *2 I'm not entirely sure about this I was originally planning on getting a card in the 9000 series but it appears it's gonna take a while before they're coming out.
RAM: I have no idea except for that I'm probably getting 4 gigs
HDD: WD Caviar 320GB*2 for Raid purposes
Case: I have no Idea
Sound Card: I'm hoping the integrated sound card from the mobo will do the job nicely.

That's about it I think.

A:I'm planning on building a new PC next month, I need some advice on the parts.

What you got there makes good sense. With your budget it seems all you need to do is get the best mobo available. One thing I like to remind you though, is not to get cheap on your PSU. Hope the CPU will come out on time. Please keep us up to date on your project. Enjoy!

Recently I've been overclocking my rig so I can get smoother framerates in Team Fortress 2.

XP 2100+ (1.7ghz)
nForce 2 mobo

The FSB usually runs at 133mhz. The highest I can set the FSB without crashing is 161mhz which bumps the speed up to 2.093ghz (13 x 161 = 2093). Windows boots up fine, and Everest registers the overclock and the new speed. However, when I try to start up TF2, I get a "Cannot Create d3d Device" error message. I get the same message whenever I try to load any game.

I've been testing and the highest FSB I can set and not get the above error message is 146mhz, which gives me a speed of 1.9mhz. Does anyone know why I'm getting the error message at FSB speeds of 147mhz and above, or how I can get rid of the error message.

A:will onboard geforce 6100 card of ASUS M2N-MX motherboard create trouble with 8600gt?

Just to be safe, I wouldn't go for that motherboard. Maybe an ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe. But if you do choose to go that motherboard don't see why it would be a problem. Once you put in your 8600GT and connect your monitor up to the 8600GT GPU rather than the onboard than the 6100 should immediately disactivate and your computer will be running off the 8600GT.

A:Create device for DVD on windows

I kind of follow what you're trying to do but still let's clarify some points:
1) Are you trying to replace DVD-ROM drive or did you already do it?
2) Is it the new DVD-ROM drive that gives you trouble with playing both DVDs and CDs?
3) What do you mean by "my computer has no space for 'other devices'"? (I think this is a driver install instructions, and trust you can have as many drivers on your computer as it's possible).
4) I would not stick to Windows 98 (even SE). Why don't you try Windows 2000 Pro?
5) This maybe a software issue. What DVD software player are you using? Make sure you close as many programs as it possible before you start playing CD/DVD.
6) I assume that you've tried more than 1 CD/DVD disc.

Ok, leave your WEP/WPA settings alone if you're connecting to the Internet.

As you're behind the router, you can safely turn off all firewalls and try to PING
each other. If this works, the FW needs some configuring. If not, TCP needs
some config work.

Once you can PING with the firewall active, you need to enable Print/file sharing too.

Then you can setup folders for sharing and add shared printers.

I used to have a 9200se recently upgraded to 9700 pro.

9200se was a really good card for just playing simple games
ie. counter-strike. But with games like hl2 and doom 3 was a very poor
effort mainly becuase it is a $70 card.

when i first got my 9700 pro my over all system performance improved.
windows loaded faster,games loaded faster. Not to mention the excellent reflections and high resoltions.

If you are a type of person who plays high demanding graphics games i sugest you save up and buy and good card rather than buying a poor cheap card.My processor is a amd athlon xp 2800+ and my computer can easily beat my friends computer a amd athlon 64 3200+ in 3d mark03 becuase he has a poor card.

i recommend spending less on a cpu and more on a card.

I bought a laptop through Best Buy that came pre-installed with Office 2010 and an activation code or whatever.

A:Unable to Create/Restore Partition Image in GhostCast server

hmm; yes I was disappointed with that issue too.
Ghost and Acronis both create images of the HD and not just the partition.

the organization of C:\ for the System itself and D:\ for your data is great!! WELL DONE!!

if you have a) an external HD or b) another system, then you can use replication
as a means to protect D:\

Once D:\ has a secondary source, the recovery of C:\ is a wipe clean, repartition, and full install of the OS.

Windows backups are a farce for system level recovery -- they're only good for user data.

Try digging up an old copy of "Microsoft Works". I have it, but it's tatooed to my board as "value added" software. It used to be available as a cheap "buy me instead of Office" disc. I have no idea what in the way of DRM the install disc has in it. I should run under XP without a problem. Any CD emulator should be able to rip and mount it, regardless.

I was playing with its word processor the other night, doing exactly what you want to do, but with music tabs. Rich Text does hold the page breaks, but I figure you already know that.

I only have "Works" on one computer, so .rtf is the way to go so as to avoid installing "Open Office", on every computer in the house.

Is there some special alternate procedure so that I can send a created torrent to someone directly without uploading it to a site?

A:Create a torrent with utorrent to distribute PERSONALLY?

I've never created a torrent myself but if your one has a tracker then you should be able to send the created .torrent file to whoever you want to send it to and then they can download it.

Another way to do it is to upload your files in a .zip or .rar file and upload them to a site like, although they have a file size limit of 500MB so if it's larger than this you'll have to make a few zip files.

As the title states, I am interested in delving into the *nix world.

I have 2 current needs

Setup networked storage server for files/backups/etc.
Setup secure FTP access to said files from anywhere (SSH?)

Does anyone have any suggestions? I was debating on doing this with Windows XP, but figured I'd give *nix a shot and see how it works & learn something at the same time.

My knowledge is very limited, but I have played with linux before.

A:Create File Server with SSH FTP capabilities

SSH would be infinitely more secure than FTP, for sure.

There are numerous FTP clients that also supposed FTP over SSH, using SFTP or SCP. The interface is generally exactly the same: Username and password. One huge advantage of using SFTP/SCP is, if you are really into it, you can setup pre-shared keys, so you never have to use a username/password, so long as you have your proper keys on the client machine.

100% of Linux distros will have SSH, and the majority will have package options for NFS, CIFS or Samba, the latter two of which you can view on a Windows client. There are also plenty of free Windows SFTP/SCP utilities, like WinSCP.

A:Create a windows 2000 bootable cd

There is software at the back end of a Windows 2000 CD that will help you create a 4-floppy boot set. There is also a download at Microsoft, but it is difficult to find. You can also copy the install files to sectors on the hard drive, then boot or install from those sectors.
Creating a Windows 2000 boot disc otherwise is extremely difficult, as Microsoft intentionally made it impossible to do.
Usually a W2K disk that does not boot is damaged by scratches. You can use one of the buffing or polishing devices to polish the disc (but don't overdo it) which will usually fix most problems except deep scratches that run diagonally.
We cannot tell you how to make an illegal copy, as per the policy of this forum. I can send you a CD if you have your own legal product ID, but there are 11 different versions of W2K, so you need the right match between the CD and the Product Key or ID.

Hi, for the past month or so, I've been dealing with random BSODs on my windows 7 laptop (Sager NP4658), can someone tell me what's causing them?  I've attached the dump files from the last month to this post.
I've already done a chkdsk which found no corruptions, SFC 'did not find any integrity violations', and verifier.exe (only tested all non-microsoft drivers) found no problems.

A:Frequent BSODs for the past month

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Out of 7 memory dumps there were 6 different BSOD error codes.  The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case.  Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)- missing Windows Updates- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems- low-level driver problems- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from or ).Please get a head start on the hardware diagnostics - they are located here: Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012): (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link: procedure here: following is for informational purposes only.[font=lucida console]**************************Thu Jun 11 20:20:10.037 2015 (UTC - 4:00)**************************

Just wondering what yall thought. Have my eyes on WinISO and MagicISO. Thanks, guys.

Little edit here: I downloaded both programs, and they seem to be pretty much the same thing. So, any ideas on which is better would be great. Also, does anyone know anything about compression in ISO/bin files? Is it possible to compress? Thanks.

A:best software to create ISO files

What are you trying to do? copy software?!?!? We don't talk about those sorts of thigns here. Catch ya lata.

Do you happen to have a 1 Gig card to put in that? (removing the 512Meg card too)

Also can you set the PageFile to Windows default (if not already)

And lastly can you turn off all Windows startups and test again (possibly including un-installing Antivirus or any other live protecting 3rd party program startups)

Looks like driver issue. You need to update all your drivers

No bug check string, and you should be running DX11. This is a problem with your Nvidia video driver. Do you have the latest?
