outlook 2003 missing features - please help

Q: outlook 2003 missing features - please help

Hello All, I am running winxp with outlook 2003 SP3, part of the MS standard edition office suite for students/teachers. I have two issues that have been driving my bonkers for about a week.

1. Import/Export - The import/export option is not on the file menu. Even after expanding the chevrons and whatnot it simply does not exist. I've had a very difficult time even searching for help on this subject.

2. Vacation/Autoresponder - this feature is also not available anywhere.

At first I thought it was a limitation of my student edition software but I've found no evidence to support this version with limited features.

Please help me figure out how to enable/install these features!

Thank you,
David

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.)

Hi David, and welcome to TSG.

I believe the vacation/autoresponder "Out of Office Assistant" in the Tools menu is only available for e-mail account on an MS-Exchange server.

Have no idea why you don't get the File -> Import & Export choice in the main Outlook screen. Shows up fine in my version of Outlook 2003 SP2, on XP Home SP2.

Hi All,
This is my first post here
So the issue I am facing is that I have a Dell Laptop with dual graphics card (Intel(R) 4400 integrated and AMD Radeon 8850m dedicated). The System would not detect any AMD driver installed on it. The device manager was showing only the Intel Graphics Card being installed .
Then I went on to uninstall the Catalyst Command Center from Control Panel, wherein I completely uninstalled the AMD Graphics driver and everything related to it.
Now, AMD is not at all being recognized by my system. Device manager doesnt show it even in hidden devices, DriverEasy scan doesnt read it, Even Dell System detect is failing to detect the AMD graphics Card.

How do I proceed ahead with this issue.

Have I somehow unmounted the hardware internally?
Is there anyway besides a factory reset to get this working again ( I have concerns with a factory reset also not helping me )
What system scan tools can I use to get my laptop to recognize the Device again?
Please Help
Thanks In Advance

I've got my build together to use a Socket 1150. I have read that one of these CPU's does not have the full/latest instruction set vs. the others. Overclocking is not important to me but I will buy the "K" series if it has the fullest instruction set.

Can anyone enlighten me further on this?

Thanks.

Just to be clear, I want NO ARGUMENTS. This is a reasonable discussion.

The conflict between the two major GPU developers is as old as I remember, and while the obvious answer in which is better depends on how much you want to spend and various subtleties in manufacturing and releases, the two generally leapfrog each other with every release, I want to discuss what, in terms of software support, features and game coding, each has over the other.

Lets start with what almost everybody knows:

Nvidia release drivers every time there's an actual update, not the regular monthly update that AMD tend to do, and while this probably results in better updates, it can mean a long time between problems getting fixed (waiting for small fixes because a big bug takes a long time to patch).
Nvidia have also developed the V-sync for monitors, which I barely know anything about - kind of the point of this thread, a can anyone shed light on how this performs? (I'll update this top post as others provide feedback)
AMD's Mantle technology is becoming more and more widespread in new releases, especially as AMD make more deals with game developers. While my AMD GPU is too old to benefit from the Mantle updates, it is doing well in trying to convince me to get AMD as my next card as well. Again, can anyone provide feedback on how the newer AMD cards perform on the Mantle-enabled games?
Cheers guys.Click to expand...

Firstly I think both companies release drivers at pretty regular intervals at this point, every major game release at least entitles a beta driver minimum.

Your speaking about G-Sync I believe. It works very well for what it is which makes the monitor and GPU communicate together to change the refresh of the monitor live to match the output FPS in order to keep the game seeming as smooth as possible with no lag, frame tears, etc. Its an excellent piece of technology but you pay a 250+ dollar premium for a monitor with it minimum. Right now DisplayPort 1.2a added this to the VESA standard so now it can be done on monitors without the specific G-SYNC module however AMD is the only one to support this in the future when they start appearing but its still going to require some work from the monitor companies. G-Sync is awesome for high resolution and high refresh setups where stability is a bit harder to achieve.

BF4 with Mantle and surround going (Ill have my Asus UHD monitor today to try) is able to maintain easy 60 FPS ultra and thief is the same way. Those are the only two mantle games I have tried as I have not gotten around to getting one other game that supports it.

Hi,

I have recently built a desktop computer, that had minor issues that I had eventually worked around or found a solution to. This issue is an exception. When I first used my computer, everything was fine with sound, until I found that my graphics card was not inserted correctly, and I was running with terrible resolution. After fixing this issue, I had no sound. This was about 10 months ago. On and off throughout this period I began to try and fix this issue, by disconnected and uninstalling my GPU. I launched skype and trying calling someone, but it alerted me that my sound card was missing. I know this is not true, so I have 3 main theories: 1. The sound card was fried (not likely). 2. My graphics card audio overrode the onboard audio, 3. The two (GPU and sound card) were operating on the same frequency. As I have said before, I had sound before I re-installed my graphics card, so I would either appreciate a solution to switch back to onboard audio, or a way to use both somehow.
Specs: Motherboard: ASUS P8z77
Graphics Card: Nvida Ge Force 670
Processor: Intel i7 core.

Hello,

Old Dell computer running Windows XP that was never backed up and I am trying to recover files and photos. I get NTLDR is missing when I boot. I've used Testdisk/Photorec to try to recover my data but when going through the recovered data it seems to be all system files that I know nothing about. I used Ubuntu on the Dell to run Testdisk. I also hooked up the hard disk to my laptop with a hard disk adapter and got the same results.I also ran a NTLDR boot disk but ended up with the same NTLDR is missing message. I dont have a XP recovery disk. Anybody that has had this issue please help!

If you have access to another PC or laptop then you can connect the hard drive in to that machine and get the files you wanted to recover from your hard drive in there.

I burned 1 GB of info in a DVD-R disc. Computer could read it perfectly and said 1 GB was recorded and 3 GB still free available for more data.
Next day I tried to add more data, 0.5 GB in a folder. All was OK, I dragged folder to DVD and PC said it was doing the job, after 2 minutes said folder was ready to be burnt. But the previous folders did not appear. I quit burning and tried to check the information on DVD. right- clicked properties and PC says it has 1 GB of data burnt and 3 GB available. But if I try to read the information I had burnt before, nothing, no files or folders.
May I still recover the 1.0 GB recorded first day? HOw?
 

A:DVD-R with 1 GB info but data is missing

When burning multiple sessions to a DVD-R disk, if the sessions are not left open or closed improperly, then it can "lose" data or make the entire disk worthless. As for recovering data from a DVD-R or any optical disk, for all intents & purposes it's a lost cause, it's not impossible, but it would cost out the wazoo and the likelihood of recovery is slim.
As cheap as DVD-R disks are, don't burn multiple sessions, just burn once and be done with it.

Hope this helps, take care!

I have a USB drive on my WinXP that does not work. The error message that I get , when I plug a flash drive in, says that the driver for the USB drive has not been installed.

Now I have 6 USB's on the system. All of them work but this one.
Device Manager shows 5 "Standard OpenHCD USB Host Controller" entries. I assume these are for the 5 working USB drives(?) Am I missing one more USB entry for the 6th USB drive that does not work?

I need to install the missing driver for the 6th USB, but don't know how. I head that you could just uninstall all of the "Standard USB Host Controller" entries and have WinXP. re-install them after re-boot, but am not sure if this is correct.

Any help with installing the missing USB driver?

Thanks for your help

We had:

1) 1 Windows Server 2003 running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 workstations.

We now want to have:

1) 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 server running Active Directory services to manage logon and permissions for file sharing.
2) 15 same workstations, with their same user profiles.

So I joined the 2008 R2 server to the domain, and then used the dcpromo tool to make it a domain controller.

Problem is, whenever I take the old server offline, (the 2003 one) everything flips out, logons are slow, and the 2008 server gives people trying to access shared files weird errors like that the server that authenticated them cannot be contacted, and asks them to log in again with their username and password before accessing shared files on the server.

What did I do wrong? I must be forgetting something.

A:Local area connection missing, Dell Inspiron 1300

Is your wireless working? Go under your BIOS and see if the WiFi is enabled or functioning. Download any BIOS updates, WiFi drivers update an etc.. If all is done and you still have the issue. Buy USB WiFi NIC Dongle and test that and see if you can get LAN or WAN connection.

A:Missing CD/DVD drive

Back in the day's of me using Windows XP, sometimes this very thing would happen to me. For me the fix was simple, I would "refresh" the "my computer" window. Also on some of my clients computers, they would, for not knowing any better, instruct Windows to hide the drive, through it's properties. Just sounds like to me something has gone just slightly haywire and maybe all you need to do is a simple "system restore" to fix this, maybe back to a date that your CD Drive icon was showing.

A question before I go, if you were to stick a audio or data CD inside the CD-ROM drive does it work? If not, than maybe "connectivity" is the issue, answering the above question will help me maybe guide you better on fixing this issue!

A:Wierd sound problem - missing vocals

some more info

Hi forum,

Some more info on this problem.

Main item is that I when I play the .wma sound samples that come with xp, they come out perfectly. Also, when I stream .wma files they're playing perfectly.

However, mp3 files (from memory stick or streaming) sound all 'out of phase' - sort of all 'swishing around' and very weak vocals.

When I stream videos (You tube) sometimes there is audio (all strange of course) and sometimes none at all.

The fact that the system can play correctly (with the .wma files) tells me that the hardware is all OK along with the sound driver. Problem must surely lie with Codecs or ?

I'm using a Mac Pro (desktop) but running it exclusively in Windows XP 64-bit. Until recently, all 16 GB of RAM was working correctly. Now however only 8 GB of RAM shows up under system properties and DxDiag. However, CPU-Z from CPUID shows 8 slots of memory each with 2 GB (which is indeed what is loaded). Why is there this discrepancy and how can I make the machine use all of it again? Thanks.
 

A:Memory missing from system properties

Has the machine been moved? Even though some software is correctly reporting the memory it would be worthwhile opening it up and checking all the sticks of memory are firmly pushed down and correctly seated in the slots. I'd guess the different software has different methods of querying the system properties. Some might actually query the memory, others might just query what the bios reports which might register the ram details even if it isn't functioning properly.

Hey everyone. I'm looking for a router that has the feature of limiting bandwidth on the hosts on my network.

I live with a few roommates and they are always downloading, taking up all the bandwidth we get out of our ISP's monthly allowance. We always go over, and we all end up paying heavy fees.

Anyone know of good routers that have a feature that enables, say, "20 GB monthly for IP 192.168.x.x" or something like that? I know of routers that have QoS features that limit the download SPEED, but that really doesn't help my issue.

My router is TP-Link, so enough said lol. There's no features really to control this sort of scenario. I know D-Links are pretty good for controlling bandwidth and limitations.

Any ideas?

Best regards

Hi, My computer has 320 gb hd., I add/installed new 1tb hard disk, and it's working normally, i save all downloaded movies and music in that hd. until the problem came, the icon suddenly disappeared, i looked in the disk management and it's not there, i reboot to see if it will detected but still no luck..i removed the connection of that 1tb hd, but the system did not boot up.. what could be the possible reason and solution for this problem...

thank you very much...
 

A:Missing hard drive

The hard drive could have failed suddenly (It happens, but rarely), or a loosely inserted cable came loose. Cables are notorious for failure as they age and components shrink in dry air or heat. Then it can be an infestation, or Windows error... or heat related issues.
It could also be a failing power supply where one section continues to work, causing the fan to blow air, but the power to the drive or board is dead in some way.
First test would be to unplug and reseat all cables. Then trying another drive.

A:6500 MP3's Missing on External HD

You might try file recovery software like Recuva

If you want to be extremely cautious, you might want to first create a sector-by-sector "clone" of your drive so you can preserve it's current state (because some recovery procedures can modify the drive as it attempts recovery) but that would require you have another large drive to store the clone copy. EASUS disk copy can create the clone for you

Hello all, first time poster although i often come to the boards to find solutions. You'll have to bare with me as I'm not that computer savvy (even though i think i am). Basically I have a Fujistu Esprimo Mobile v5505. I got fed up of Vista and thought i would install my old XP pro. I partitioned my drive and installed XP, i then formatted the drive that Vista was on. I came back and when i turned on my computer i got the NTLDR is missing error, now i would be able to deal with this but I cant even enter the bios to change boot options (which were set to flash, cd, HD). Before I fiddled with my laptop I had the options on the Fujitsu load up screen to enter BIOS/change boot options etc not anymore. I hope someone can shed some light on this matter.

I have the Asus Rampage II MOBO which allows up to 12 GB of triple channel RAM. I had 6 2GB Chips of OCZ Platinum installed.

A few days ago My computer's CPU fan Stopped working and the emergency alarm went off. I was able to fix that by installing the stock fan my CPU came with.

When I booted it back up however In bios and in windows it only displays that I have 8GB of RAM. I tried reinstalling them to make sure they were set right and tried moving them around but still only 8GB.

Is there anything I can do to get them working? Am I missing something?

Thanks for your help.
 

A:Missing RAM?

Try running Bios defaults

This settings area can be called:
Bios Setup
CMOS Settings
System Setup
even just Setup
You can enter it by pressing the keyboard key that is displayed on your screen when first turning on your computer
Its sometimes:
A Fn Button like F1, or F2, or F10 or some other Fn key
DEL key
(whatever the computer states on screen when you first turn on your computer)
Once in Bios Setup, locate Setup Defaults (sometimes called Optimized Defaults)
Apply it, then Save and Exit Bios Settings (which is usually F10, but it will tell you in the Bios Settings screen)

If that doesn't help try 1 Ram card at a time, seeing if you first get 2Gig on your first Ram card
Continue on (shutting down each time) until you find the possible Ram at fault

I also have a Local Area connection 3 and a Local area connection 4 both state Limited or no connectivity. The 4 is VIA Rhine II Fast Ethernet Adapter and the 3 is Intel 21041-Based PCI Ethernet Adapter. I no longer have the Linksys router and am just trying to get back on internet with that computer.

A:Missing IP address

Do you actually have a network adapter attached to your Firewire (the IEEE 1394) connector?. I'm guessing not and guessing you never had an IP address there

More likely you have network adapters on your Ethernet ports (which are what the other LAN connections you see are referring to)

Click Start->Run, then copy/paste the command line below.
Code:
cmd /c ipconfig /all > "%userprofile%\desktop\ipconfig.txt"
The command will put an ipconfig.txt file on your desktop. Please attach it to your next post

A user has been using her laptop for several years and uses Outlook for her POP3 email.

How do I let her domain profile be the same as her local profile?

you're going to have to either get a new manufacturer disk or buy a copy of the OS to install.

Hello folks,

My problem is that my DVD-ROM drive on my laptop is missing. It is not showing up in Device Manager either. I tried Microsoft's fix by removing the lowpass and highpass filters in the registry. This worked for a few minutes and I could use my DVD-ROM drive but soon I had the same problem again. I formated and reinstalled the OS (running vista). My DVD-ROM drive was working again, only for a few minutes then it was gone again. I downloaded the latest drivers from Acer and again, my drive was working. After I ran some windows updates, my DVD-ROM drive disappeared again. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to a permanent fix.

Thanks!
Antil0ck
 

A:DVD-ROM drive is missing

If it is more than a year old, or if it has had a lot of use, it may have burned out. Some of the little devices inside do burn out like a bulb, and other things go awry as they age.
We find that once they begin to fail, you are out of luck.
Keep your old one, as new drives may not have all the exterior hardware... and you can save money by buying a basic unit, then adding on the framework, sliders, etc., yourself.
We recommend Teac and Toshiba, followed by Plextor, LG and Samsung. Most of our clients have terrible luck with Sony, HP, HLDS or HL, and the other 87 makers.
We may, perhaps, be alble to help if you give us the brand and model of the laptop, as well as age, operating system, and hardware configuration.

A:Missing Multimedia Audio Controller

In your listing, the Multimedia device is your Sound Device.
This may be your driver... http://www.bioticaindia.com/sigmatel-stac9721-23.html

What I would like for you to do is this...
First
Go to Start -> My Computer and RIght Click.
Click on Properties.
Click on Device Manager.
Scan down through the list...
Do you see any red x, or yellow circles (or yellow triangles) with Exclamation Marks?
(it would probably be in the section called "Sound, Video, and Game:.

If there are no issues here....

Second... Double Check your speakers...
Are they attached to your sound card (and plugged into the correct jack)?
Are they plugged in to their power source (or do they have fresh batteries)?
Are they turned on?

Third,
If you do not have a speaker icon in your system tray,
Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Devices - Double Click on this icon...
On the Volume Tab... Make sure that your sound is not muted (a check box)- and make sure the slider is not set too low.
Check the Speak Volume Button for the same issues.
Back at the Device Volume section, Click the Advanced button, This will bring up a control panel that looks like a mixer board.
Make sure that your sliders are not set to zero, and not checked "to Mute".

If you DO have the speaker icon in the system tray, it will bring up the Mixer Board mentioned above.

Fourth; make sure that your external volume control, (if you have one) is not set too low.

Lastly, When you say you don't have a cd, are you referring to a "driver disk"?

Are any of these helpful?

OK, my subject line might sound cryptic! Here is my set up: first router (main) is connected to the cable modem and provides std addresses as 192.168.1.2 (base is 192.168.1.1) etc. I have a second router (same brand) as a gateway connected to my main. This second router base address is 10.10.10.1 and all that are connected to this one have manually provided IP addresses (such as 10.10.0.2, etc). The main one provides WIFI access as for the second one do not.

Now my question: from my laptop who uses the WIFI network, how can I reach or connect to the other network (the one that is managed with the router with the 10.10.10.1 address? The purpose? I would like to access the computer connected to it as if they were part of the WIFIed network. And be able to access the router management page. Any clue?
 

A:Cascading routers - how to access admin features from one to the other?

first some basics;

examine the router (the box itself). everything attached to a LAN slot will default to
routing upwards using the WAN slot -- that's a big clue as to what the routing tables looks like.

second; to manage the configuration of a specific router:
a) WIRE a system directly to it
b) login to the router config page using the current router's ip-address

if your network is
modem---router#1----router#2---router#3

then a system attached to routerX will route upward to router(X-1) and NOT downward to router(X+1)

if you wish to have ALL systems (wired and wireless) see and share with each other, then you have too many distinct address.
Leave router#1 as is. disconnect router#2 from #1 and wire router#1 to a LAN port on router#2, leaving its WAN port empty. Log into router#2 and disable DHCP.

Now do the same for the wire from #2-->#3 and disable#3 DHCP.

All systems (wired or WiFi) will get ip-assignments from router#1 and will be able to
ping and share files.

I recently (last week) came across a problem I couldnt find the answer to. Eventually after tinkering around I figured it out(as Im not that good with Vista...still)

Did your harddrive go missing after you backed up ur pc or just disappeared all of a sudden?

if so check this out

right click my computer > click Manage > click Disk Management >

now look at your internal hard drives, does 1 not say formmated or "uninitialized"? If so easy fix to get that hard drive back!

right click, select initlize (format) and blamao let it work its magic( takes a few minutes depending on the size of the drive) Once it's done you should be good togo!

Hope this helps a few people, as it helped me after finally figuring out "initilized" meant format o.O

A:Server 2003 Active Directory Problems

You need to have the DNS localized to your systems, but it is not a FULL blown all encompassing system -- just the local SERVER addresses will be there.
You then configure it to perform and external referral to whatever full DNS you please.

Depending upon how the client systems are used, you can have them entered into your DNS when they login and removed with they logout.

Very interesting to hear! 'cuz i just happened to notice the same anomaly on my own version of Windows XP SP3 within the last coupla days!! (i.e. drive letters appear normally in Windows Explorer and all works well. yet Disk Management doesn't show the drive letters for your my HDD partitions!)

Anyone else also see the same??? In any case, will let you know if i should find why this is happening (but appears to not just be you!)

/* EDIT */
Hmm... but let me one thing that may be different (tho still odd). For my case:
1) If i click Change Drive Letters and Paths i DO have the Add button option
2) If i click Add, it does still available drive letters

But it's the simple display of drives and volumes in disk management that's not showing assigned drive letters (is what's in common with what you repport)

Hi Everyone. I have my new Dell Latitude D620 that i purchased and have recently wiped the hard drive. However, i have now realized that my desktop OS disc is not working to install windows onto my laptop. Are there any other ways to install windows without purchasing 200-300$ software? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 

A:Missing Windows OS disc for Dell Latitude D620

If it is a new machine, then you can get a replacement from dell. Just let them know the one you have will not complete the install. If it was purchased from a 3rd party and is used, Find out if it is still covered under warranty. If it is, ask that person to call dell and do a change of ownership. Once there system shows you as owner (or you get the info used when they purchased and/or registered the computer, if you bought from a friend) you should be able to get help from Dell.

Good Luck. Let me know how it turns out.

I have a client's machine on which one of his darling little brats has created or reset the BIOS password and now denies all knowledge of the thing. I seem to recall there is either a means of generating the default password from the Service Tag or, failing that, shorting out one of the motherboard chips. That I have done before but would prefer to know which chip it is.
The system is a Dell Dimension 3100.
Anyone able to help before I condemn the thing to perdition and a drop kick into the neighbours wheelie bin?
 

A:Missing Dell BIOS (boot) password

Difficult task.
What you describe will not happen. But you can check with Dell support to see if the computer is registered to that owner. Then Dell will send someone out as an authorized service rep with a little disk that runs the fix... and has a cost.
I would first see if the hard drive can be accessed while installed in an external USB enclosure.
If it can, then even if passworded, you can put in a replacement drive. And Dell XP install disk will work.
Then you can buy a Dell motherboard on eBay. Many Optiplex boards are cheaper, and work better than the Dimension boards... for a cheaper price... around $70 to $85.... or refurbished Dell government computers are for sale at PCSurplusonline for $120 to $180 with shipping... just move the board into the 3100. And the dell OS will work.

The cure, i used the restore disk and driver disk to put Vista back on the laptop and it worked fine.

Seems to be a case of find the right driver for it, although its possible that the card has gone faulty, have you tried it back in the PC to make sure.?

I'm trying to configure a wireless connection with the internal wireless card like I normally do. The tab is just no longer there! I have no idea why and I'm lost.

Any ideas? Remember this is Vista there is no wireless zero configuration just the wired and wlan config.

Is your copy of Vista updated to SP1? What version of Vista are you running? Is your system clean and free of viruses and other malware. By Network tab, do you mean the word "Network" in the start menu?

A:Drive letters changed themselves. NTLDR is missing

Hi Chegwell,

My first reaction to this is that the battery that holds the PC's BIOS settings (and system date, etc.) whilst the machine is switched off, is faulty.

Try accessing the Bios (usually by hitting DEL or F1, F2) while the PC is booting, set the hard drive priority to SATA, save and reboot.

Good Luck,

Taff.

A:SBS 2003 Premium - No Internet Connectivity - Qwest Modem Issues?

I would suggest a few things:

1. Turn off DHCP on the modem.
2. Assign the Linksys NIC a static IP that is on the same subnet as the LAN of the modem.
3. Set the DNS of both NIC's on your server to the DNS provided by your ISP (this is usually just easier than doing DNS yourself).

You will still be able to use VPN, RDP, and OWA as long as you forward those ports to your servers (linksys NIC) IP address. If you need to know what those ports are, let me know.

When composing an e-mail in Outlook 2007 (Vista), the typing never wraps round to the next line; it types as one continuous line from left to right. What do you do to change this back to multi-line?

Thanks for you help.

Please guide me tot the necessary features for an LCD monitor.
As the prices have come down i am planning to go for 22" screen.

So wots DVI, Contrast Ratio, Response Time (ms)?
Is 2000:1 contrast ratio good enough?

And wots the minimum requirement of the above three for best performance.

I use photoshop, flash, premier pro, and some small tools for graphics.
I do video editing, titles making, ofcourse not heavy graphics like autodesk.

Thanks.
 

A:What features must an LCD have? Planning to buy a new LCD

Reliability is number one...
Color accuracy
Ability to view at angles from left side and right side, so you can show others images they need.
Good contrast.
The ability to handle screen resolutions and aspect ratios of various sizes:
Resolutions with a 4:3 aspect ratio:
800 x 600
1024 x 768
1152 x 864
1600 x 1200

Resolutions with a 5:4 aspect ratio:
1280 x 1024
1600 x 1280

and a screen width, corner to corner, of 22 inches or more.

Sony (if you can afford them)
Samsung
Sharp
HP
Dell (which are usuall Samsung
Panasonic
Phillips
LG
Of the ones my clients have used, LG has been the best of the low priced ones.

Avoid Acer, Envision, ViewSonic, anything cheap.

Try to avoid buying online, as damage is done in shipment.

Hello,
I recently bought a used Panasonic Toughbook CF-73. I formatted and re-installed Windows XP. I am unable to find a few drivers, mainly the audio driver. I have tried updating through Microsoft/Windows Update to no avail. I have Everest installed and I am attaching the report. Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance!
 

A:Missing Panasonic Toughbook Hardware

On our toughbooks, we find everything we need on the Panasonic support site. Try starting with
http://www.panasonic.com/business/toughbook/fully-rugged-computers.asp
then keep searching on Panasonic support for the drivers you need. There is nothing that is missing from that site, unless something happened in the past three days.

I have a Seagate 100 gig Hard Drive and i used Partition Magic 8 from DOS to partition the spaces. i dont know much of the program aside from knowing that all it can do is split spaces.

out of 100 gigs, i split one parition to 30 gigs
i left the rest about 70 gigs unallocated
i press apply totally forgot to turn the 70 gigs of unallocated space into its own partition.

now when i start windows..i can see my 30 gig space. but where did my 70 gigs go
i went back into Partition Magic 8 (Dos) and all i can see is 30 gigs, i can parition that. Did partition magic delete my 70 gigs?

Hey, this is my Motherboard. In the description it has Quad 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet, But as you can see in the picture there are only 2 ports.

- Does Quad Ethernet mean what i think it does, (4 ports)
- If i can have up to 4 ports, how can I supply those?

I'm thinking a PCI Card...

What's the heck do you say?
 

A:Missing Ethernet ports?

Code:
Onboard LAN
LAN Chipset 4 x Realtek 8111C
Max LAN Speed Quad 10/100/1000Mbps
this means you have the (4x) Realtek Nics on the motherboard and
they should have access ports on the rear for standard RJ45 cable connections.

A:Missing memory

Tell us your hard drive, computer configuration, and the operating system with which you formatted the hard drive. Did you restore the computer from a hidden partition, or by using a disc.
There are plenty of explanations... but we need to know more about your system.

I just got my XFX 9800 GT in the mail and apparently it's missing three capacitors to the right of the fan. I've compared my card to pictures on TigerDirect and Newegg and they all show that the card has three more capacitors than it actually has. What should I do? Is this normal? What will happen if I put it in my computer? Will it function properly? Thank you.
 

A:Missing Capacitors

Exactly which model do you have?

It could either be missing capacitors or it could just be a different PCB layout that doesn't need what you see pictured online.
