Hey is there a program out there that can track my bandwidth? I sure would love to see how much i download and upload over a period of time. It would be cool if it gave stats and such. anyone know anything like that? Free is good.
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 google turned up this. Is there something here that will be useful to you?https://forums.techguy.org/threads/solved-bandwidth-tracker-program.329016/
Hi, I have a single network with wired and wireless connection. I would like to control bandwidth usage by the users because some users just download big files while others watch movies on the network.
how best and how first can I solve this?
is it possible for me to allocate bandwidth to a specific access point?
I badly want to find users who are watching movies or downloading big files and control them.
First caveat, there's a difference between Monitoring vs Controlling bandwidth.
That said, Paessler has good tools for monitoring. It is not clear that they also control.
They document Four Methods of Monitoring.

Here again since I have the most weird problem ever which I have never seen nor heard of before. I recently upgraded the OS on a friends computer, from Vista to 7. However now I can't seem to get the onboard ethernet adapter to work, it can't be seen in device manager nor anywhere else. I have tried to reset the bios (by removing the cmos battery) and I have also checked that the network adapter is set to 'Enabled'. Also, when I connect the cable to the ethernet port no lights go on, it doesn't give any sort of hope what so ever. The cable is ok, the "modem" is ok, and everything else seems to be in order and yet it doesn't work.
Computer in question:
HP Pavilion 6530sc
Non-default GPU and added 1Gb RAM
Whenever you install a new OS, always take note of the model of core system hardware like GPU, chipset, and ethernet/wifi (there are a few others that aren't as important, but nice to have updated) since those are critical to your computers core functionality.
However, a quick google search of your model yielded me with your PC's system specs. Your PC contains a Realtek RTL8201N ethernet adapter. So far I am unable to find a driver from Realtek itself and the HP driver is not Realtek, but instead nVidia nForce.
So after a bit of searching, I came across this: it seems to me that you have an old chipset from nVidia. I am not completely sure, but I think you have an ION chipset. Try installing this ION chipset driver (64 bit) ==OR== this ION chipset driver (32 bit) and tell me if it works. It should include the necessary component drivers and if it works, it means you have an ION chipset like I suspected.
Here are the specifications for your PC BTW.
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?
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.
Recently sound has not been coming through my speakers, so I tried to plug in headphones and headset but no further luck. I then went into control panel then sound and check the settings on my playback and nothing was touched or muted etc. I then went to the Speakers and Headphones in sound right clicked and pressed test and it said "The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing through this device." but no other applications that I could find that would be using it. My prediction is that having no internet protection for a while and downloading off the internet has caused a virus to cause my audio to become mute, if this is so how would I be able to find this application causing it. AVG isnt picking it up.
Broni, from the Virus and Malware Removal forum doesn't think it is malware related.
I have downloaded a program called Anomos, it tells me please forward your ports so the program can work, 5061. Ok so I go into my century link modem and it wants a ip address to forward the ports what ip address do I enter?
The LAN address of the system you want the data to go to.
It must always be the same address, so you need to make it so using
Address Reservation on the router OR a static address on the target machine (not recommended for laptops).
Hello all I have been playing around with my home network of late and noticed some surprising at least as far as I m concerned results For work I require a hardware VPN so I was using in Change routers bandwidth different with a Sonicwall TZ W as my firewall and a asus rt-n u as a access point because the TZ s wireless is pants With this my peak download rate was Mbps and upload Mbps I then bought a linksys E and flashed it with DD-WRT and used that instead of the Sonicwall as soon as I plugged it in I noticed a Mbps increase in my download rate Upload increase was neglible if any I then decided I wanted to change from having a firewall and AP to a all in one solution since there was no real need to have both so I bought a Asus RT-N U flashed it with DD-WRT Now this router is amazing Change in bandwidth with different routers and I can t rate it enough with DD-WRT it is off the charts Much to my surprise I now had a peak bandwidth of Mbps down and Mbps up which is what my ISP originally quoted me when I got the line The results from the RT-N U you could say is not surprising with it being a far superior router but the E vs a TZ I m confused somebody please enlighten me Oh and the setup on E and the Asus is Change in bandwidth with different routers identical Alastair nbsp
My gut reaction is - - cudos to DD-WRT.
There are three factors for routers (especially when they get real busy):
clock speed of the processor
It is well known that DD-WRT is very good (read tight/small) and that allows the hardware (cpu + memory) to perform at its best.
I have a laptop with the Realtek high definition audio and Dolby home theater installed. After the latest win8.1 update the Realtek program has stopped forwarding the sound through the Dolby program (which it managed to do perfectly before the upgrade). I tried using Viper4Windows too but that didn't work eighter. Is there an option anywhere that will allow me to fix this?
Are there any yellow (!) in the device manager?
As the title suggests- I have issues.. Just moved out to the rural countryside and had to get a satelite setup for internet access. We got the 30GB package and after a WEEK, they claimed we hit our limit. Ok so back in city life we had a 25 Gig package on broadband and never had an issue with three of us on it. I downoaded the Networx bandwidth tracking package and while good it has issues.. so heres my Question: What software package OR hardware device is available out there to track usage for a family of three wireless Inspirons and a lan cabled IBM Business computer? I can't install any software on the business computer so I set mine up to monitor router traffic hoping to capture all traffic - but this only works if my computer is on. Is there an easier way? As I'm not a techie please use very simple words and suggestions. Thanks
Having 30GB a month sounds pretty good to me, my parents live in a rural area and have 5! a month limit. They are through Dish, there aren't a whole lot of sat internet providers in the US, and they are all pretty similar in usages and charges from what I recall. Dish has a way to track your usage on their website, I assume HughesNet, WildBlue, whatever things are calling themselves now (essentially in the US at least, you are going through something that is either those, or is owned by those). So, you should be able to watch your usage in somewhat real time on their website.
If you live outside of the US or have some provider I am unaware of, I would be they also have a website interface that will let you track. The only downside to this is that you have to take their word for your usage, but that is pretty easily determined if you can control your devices for a short period of time and do a download test (grab a linux ISO at 650 megs). It should match up, if not, then you are getting scammed by your ISP and you should google to see if anyone else is having the same issues, this is HIGHLY unlikely though.
Bottom line, you are overthinking it, just use your ISPs counter on their website, if you think their's is wrong, post back with some details on why.
Hello Everyone !
Right now I am using a broadband connection as my Internet connection and I have a dsl modem which is wi-fi capable. Two of my frnds share the same Internet connection through wi-fi. The problem is whenever any of us watching YouTube videos or downloading something, the whole speed is consumed by that particular computer. I know that many new modems have the capability to limit the bandwidth usage these days but mine is an older one. So I was wondering if there is any way I can limit the bandwidth for each computer.
You have to have a modem you can log into an has that type of feature. If you are wired into the network, you should be able to limit the wireless bandwidth and keep your wired bandwidth up. Normally go into the modem, go to setting and wireless setting to limit it.
Hi,I have subscribed with my internet provider for a 4 mbps plan ,but when I download youtube vids I see the download speed approx 180-210 KBps --- 1.6 mbps.This is further proved by speedtest.net
When I lodged a complaint I was assured that I was indeed enjoying a 4 mbps plan and that it was "upto 4 mbps" which means the speed can be as low as 2 mbps
But I have never experienced speeds in excess of 2mbps!!
Is there any way to verify that I am on a 2 mbps bandwidth or a 4 mbps bandwidth?
What type of connection is it (DSL / Cable / Fiber Optic)? Do you have a router hooked up to your internet to provide access to multiple devices or is it directly connected to just one computer? If you do have multiple devices, how many do you have and how do you have them connected (wired / wireless)?
Simply put, my uncle using the internet and I want to limit the bandwidth he can use, he basically downloads all the time and it means I get either really high latency (when I play games) or I have to wait with buffering (while watching streams/youtube videos etc).
I'm only really looking to limit his speed so that I don't have any of these problems anymore.
Using the router; "Wireless-N 150 ADSL2+ Modern Router model; DGN1000".
Lookup the manual for that router and find the QoS information.
You can then set the QoS to downgrade streaming video and leave everything else alone. It WILL impact all streaming video however.
ISPs around my area (Memphis) charge about $10 per megabit for uplink, so 10 megs up costs $100. That's pretty expensive compared to something like Google's Kansas City project where you get 1000 megs for $70... but I don't live in Kansas City.
Is there some trick to buying cheap bandwidth? Some way to bypass ISPs?
Did you try a Google Search?
As well as other specs, like the ms and such. I bought a mouse from China on Ebay for about 8$ new. The specs say its the same as the death adder, but I have my doubts. I am sure its still a good mouse for the price, but Im curious how good is it? I wanna know did they copy paste the death adder specs or did I really get a smoking deal on this mouse?
here is the mouse btw
p.s. the damn dragon light is blinding me while I type, can I turn it off with software?
p.s.s. the middle mouse wheel is slow hmm (compared to my old mouse)
It seems hard to believe that the sensor would be the same.. But I have no ideas on how to actually test.
Hi there I m not sure if this belongs in THIS section but do let me know if I posted at the wrong page Basically I wanted to ask more about bandwidth management I ve got this router at the moment http reviews cnet com routers asus-rt-n u-dark - - html I m only talking about the WIRED part router? How bandwidth to manage on So basically it has port in for the modem and ports out to all the pcs that ll be using a wired connection How to manage bandwidth on router? I ve got a total of Mbps download and a Mbps upload How do I set it to custom Like for example Port Out A can only download a max of Mbps and Mbps upload Port How to manage bandwidth on router? Out B can only download a max of Mbps and Mbps upload Port Out C can only download a max of Mbps and Mbps upload Port Out D can only download a max of Mbps and Mbps upload Or forget about the upload The upload can be shared but NOT the download Is it possible I went to the software management of the router itself but it didn t give me such configuration option nbsp
You can use the traffic manager feature on this router model, you can access it through the web management panel (default'd to 192.168.1.1)
I was bored the other night so I No output reassembling parts video good solved after -- decided to assemble some parts I had laying around into a working system It was late and I d had a couple beers so I wasn t at my best I had some trouble installing the Hyper but finally had it all together and wired up It seemed to boot up fine all fans spinning both drives spinning but no output to video I knew that all parts came from a working system tried another No video output after reassembling good parts -- solved monitor tried a video card cleared CMOS reseated RAM no video Took it all apart and examined the mobo looking for shorted spots and cracks nothing I could see was wrong Went to bed had nightmares about electromagnetic pulse weapons testing randomly destroying computers all over the world Got up determined to fix a computer that shouldn t be broken installed the CPU and Hyper No video output after reassembling good parts -- solved again noticed that this time it lined up the screws much easier and didn t press the heatsink as tightly - looked at the instruction illustration again and realized I had the X bracket on wrong before quot breadboarded quot it and the video works Put it all back in the case testing at each step to make sure it was still getting VGA output It works fine now The extra mechanical force applied by the X bracket being wrong was enough to stress the CPU or the mobo to the point of throttling the video output somehow So for all you others who had the same problem no video after re-assembling good parts which Googled up in the hundreds this is one thing you might check When installed properly most coolers will twist a couple of degrees without too much trouble If it s rigidly immobile like mine was last night with X bracket installed wrong then something s wrong The lesson learned here is don t drink and attempt to build a computer even if it s only beers in hours nbsp
I guess you could say...

ok, terrible pun, I'm sorry.
When I got a new printer, I went to my laptop and try the find printer thing when I clicked on it the window pop up and then another one that said "The Active Directory Domain Service is currently unavailable." Please someone tell me what and how to fix this
Follow the directions that came with your new printer. Usually you have to first install the driver from the included disc or their website, then at some point you're instructed to plug the printer in with USB cable and power it up. It should then be recognized in Device Manager and show up in Control Panel/Printers, where you can set it to your default printer.
I am helping my uncle built a computer and looking for a gpu which can handle 5 monitors and still have enough power to run a 3d modelling program (dont know the name of it) any ideas?
Running five displays in 2D isn't really demanding at all, its just a case of connectivity. For example, a HD6870 should handle six displays (at least mine does), but dependant on the 3D modelling performance required it changes things dramatically.
You need to consider several things:
1. The connections the displays will actually use, as you'll be using DisplayPort connectors if your adding that many, so converters will need to be considered if the displays don't natively run them.
2. The exact usage of the computer. If its just 3D, and only that, commerical grade (workstation) FirePro GPUs are more than likely a better alternative.
3. Whether you want to run two GPUs in SLI/CF in order to achieve the required capacity to run these displays.
4. An important one...Budget!
It used to be the case (if I remember correctly) that Nvidia GPUs were better optimised for the sort of work your uncle would be using them for. Not sure if its the case now.
Workstation GPUs will have drivers specifically optimised for 3D modelling work, and will be better supported. These are bloody expensive though.
If you want a good all-round GPU with serious horsepower for 3D modelling I'd go with something like a GTX580, or the new GTX680. One problem though, they're both limited to four displays (580 might be three only), so to run five, you'd need a second one in SLI.
Either that, or ditch the fifth display and just run four with a GTX680.
I recently purchased an M-audio Axiom 49 MIDI keyboard and the M-audio fast track pro external sound card. While attempting to install the external soundcard, I was met with an error message reading: "USB Controller Bandwidth exceeded". I googled some solutions and was unsuccessful in finding an answer. I tried plugging each USB into a different USB port with no avail. Is there a way I can fix this without having to add additional USB card to my computer? Would an external USB Hub fix this problem?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Here's a screenshot of what i'm dealing with.
what are the specs of your computer? Are you using USB 1.0 ports?
I wasn't able to connect through my wireless router to the internet on any of my wireless devices until I plugged in my wireless usb stick. I plugged it into one laptop, and now I can use both. Why would this happen? My mother has the same connectivity issue, and do you think I should try the same thing? It seems as though that every wireless connection that I come across has this problem lately. Every single one. I am confused, is it just me?
Renewing your IP address. For assistance, contact the person who manages your network. I used to get that error every time I tried to repair connection.
I think the lack of responses here may be the result of everyone else being confused as well.
Try explaining that a little better, its not exactly clear what your problem is.
I have a linksys WAG200G router. I would like to set a limit for my wireless bandwidth as i am sharing it with another partner. I have his MAC address.
I tried doing it using my router but it seems that it won't work. I was thinking of any softwares that can help me.
If you have any other solutions, i will be glad to hear it from you.
Look for the QoS settings in the router. They discriminate on the services, not the user
eg: lower bandwidth for ICQ, P2P, Stream, Facebook, BitTorrent ....
There is a specific software that i would like to install to the Server ans to let it run on all the computers on the network. So,instead of installing it on each computer (time consuming) i need a way to install it on the server and let it run on each other computer.
Copy software to a folder on the server
Share the folder over the network
Map the folder as a drive on the workstations
Run the software on the workstations.
This is pretty basic networking.
The software has to be set up so that it can be shared in that way. In most cases you will probably have to install the software on the hard drive and share just the data files over the network. The application has to have that capability.
Hi My system already had an Nvidia GT Gcard installed and running for about years now Yesterday i got a BOOTMGR error and had to repait that file using the Windows Disc This involved using the onboard video chip of my motherboard Manufacturer BIOSTAR Group - Model GF -M TE Upon resolving the BOOTMGR issue i was unable to resuse my graphics card I have tried reinstalling drivers motherboard drivers resetting CMOS etc The trouble is when i try disabling the onboard chip through device manager it still will not switch to the issue (not solved card Graphics threads) by other any Gcard There is also only an Graphics card issue (not solved by any other threads) option in BIOS to set the onboard chip to ON or Auto ON I do not have the driver CD for the graphics card and gave been using the Nvidia site for them Also what appears to be odd is that the computer does not detect the Gcard at all and only the onboard chip even if i uninstall the drivers for it and disable it Any help would be great nbsp
I suggest a clean reinstall of the OS and drivers from scratch. Clean out your PC, re-seat all the components and continue with a fresh install of OS, drivers, etc.
If that doesn't work, then it's an issue with your card or the PCI-E slot on the motherboard.
Good morning all,
I have notice that sometimes my PC's get very slow when downloading from internet. I have a T1 and a DSL Line. The T1 is primary use only for internal traffic between sites. The DSL line is suppose to be use only for web traffic and also as a backup in case T1 goes down. The part that I dont understand is that if someone is downloading anything from the internet it also affects T1 traffic. Can anyone please tell me how can I track down what is actually happening. If Im d/l from web why slows T1 as well?
It is non-trivial to get TWO connections to the Internet to operate together.
My guess would be you are starting the DSL first and it is taking all the traffic.
Test you connectivity by disconnecting the RJ11 phone link ,
disconnect the RJ45, wait 30 seconds and then reconnect.
Now watch your bandwidth.
I use my TI-82 grapics calculator quite a lot (usually for programming), and I'm aving a problem with the variables, primarily the "Y" variable. When I put a store command for a real variable in a program, the calculator stores "0" to it no matter what. The problem usually occurs during the first 30 seconds of program execution. I try entering the command several times, and it still doesn't work right. What I'm mainly worried about is the fact that it hasn't done this when I first bought it.
Will it get worse?
Can I do anything to fix it?
Does this indicate a serious problem elsewhere?
i doubt that this is the right section for this but anyway... try contacting the manufacturer and see if they can help you or google

port range blocking for torrenting
A week later guys and nothing?
I'm not trying to spam or anything. I just need to resolve this issue asap.
Maybe if I can't upload firmware to the router, anybody have any ideas on how to effectively block the ports for torrenting.
I know my roommate uses ports TCP that vary from 40-50,000, on his host. But the router only restricts ports based on IP addresses that are based remotely.
Would I have to find out certain torrenting trackers' IP addresses and block them that way?

Gaming uses up VERY little bandwidth - it sends very small packets of info back and forth so its defo not the cause of her bandwith issues.
I'm connected to the internet via wireless modem. My PC is connected to the modem via Ethernet and the modem connects me witlessly to the nearest Base Station. The modem has no interface or options to modify.
I play WoW and use Ventrillo ( Voice Chat ). Is there a way to give WoW more priority than Ventrillo ? Because sometimes i have over 600ms latency.
Bandwidth is 512Kbps Up and 128Kbps Down.
Thanks in advance.....
I don't think theres an easy way to do that, without using third party software, but what I would suggest is perhaps lowering the quality of ventrillos call? that would lower the bandwidth required. (Thats if there isn't already an option to lower bandwidth within ventrillo options)
hey y all- i had a for undervolted PS modem Problem solved: modem connectivity problem that had an easy answer and I thought I would post a note just to keep us all thinking creatively -- My computer DSL connection was iff-y then died I figured out that the power supply for the wire modem Problem solved: undervolted PS for modem was dead - I did this by Problem solved: undervolted PS for modem process-of-elimination and by don t try this at home sticking my tongue on the power tip of the power supply - at volts you should feel a little buzz - no buzz dead power supply So I head of to Radio Shack Go Lance They don t have a volt ps They do have a multi-power adapter that includes volt in the range of selectable voltage by a switch It costs more than a plain volt power adapter should but I want to read Techspot so I Problem solved: undervolted PS for modem pay the extra money for a multi-adapter rather than find one off the web and wait for shipping Multi-adapter had wrong polarity and this was not switchable so I had to cut and reverse the wiring don t try this at home unless you know what you are doing - wrong polarity will smoke and kill whatever low -voltage thingie yo uplug in including DSL modem Prob Solved Months later I get modem problems I think it is a wireless connectivity problem because whenever I try to hit the web by wireless the modem freaks out Somehow days later it occurs to me power could be wrong sure enough one of my preschoolers had somehow pushed the power adapter voltage slector switch from volt to volt -- so when the desktop and the laptop were both trying to pull data through the wire modem it was just enough power drain to make the modem shut off So if you have connectivity problems as always check the classic quot is it plugged in Is it turned on quot intervention first - check for a dead power adapter on your modem And if you have to improvise and use a multi-voltage power supply adapter you might want to glue or tape the voltage selector button in place nbsp

I was installing the software for my Palm TX Organizer, and when it came to connecting the device to the computer, I received the message that the system was locating the drivers for the device and then informing me that no drivers were available. When I tried to sync the device through the palm program it will not recognize the presence of the device. I uninstalled and downloaded a new version of the program from the Palm website encountering the same situation when I connected the device to the computer.
I have also experienced this same situation with the installation of Tunes Plus to allow for the uploading of my iPod music onto iTunes on the computer, I continually get a device not present message.
Can anybody out there throw some light on this problem?
Windows doesn't need drivers to detect a Plug and Play device.
So forget about drivers for the moment....
1) You don't say how you connect the device to your compute. I'll guess USB???
2) Then start with the basics: Are you hearing the USB ding/dong sound affect as you should when connect / disconnect a USB device????
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.
Hi I have a dell xps m1210 that show a message "invalid configuration information - please run setup program", i can not even enter the setup, when i press de F2 to enter setup it says "preparing to enter setup", but instead entering the setup it gives me the "invalid configuration information - please run setup program"
Can anyone help me
How old is it. Could be a hard drive failure... can you give us the service Tag from the back of the machine?

It appears the drivers are not installed, or the incorrect drivers are installed, or you have a defective RealTek. Some RealTeks have a switch that must be set. Some RealTek's require updated firmware download to work with VISTA. Firmware and driver updates are always available at the mfg site, but not always easy to find ezactly where they are..
You might also dry a gurgle search for RealTek RTL8101E and for simply RTL8101E drivers or Firmware.
Hello everyone, I need a program that's like Furmark for Windows 7 64-Bit, I'm going to get a GeForce 7950 GX2 used from someone and I would like to test it for a bit before I buy it.

HP USB format utility is most commonly used, you seem to have no objection about erasing data, but just to mention it, the format will delete everything.
If that doesn't work, then thats bad. There's the HDD low level format utility, but i've never used nor had to use it.

If the router has no wireless capability then you can rule out anyone using it from the outside. I would suggest using a bandwidth monitoring tool on each PC to see which PC is taking the most BW.
Make sure all PC's have all software patches and updates applied and scan for malware.
This is really a quick question, what would be the best and easiest way to do a straight copy/clone of a primary system partition from one hdd to another hdd. This new cloned drive needs to be bootable in the same system without the original drive.
The reason I need to be able to do this is I want to rebuild my RAID without losing my OS installation just duplicate it to a separate drive, boot from it and then do as I need, any one have any ideas? The easier the better.

Hola amigos I have a home setup and Connecting my time double (pos bandwidth?) same cable at wireless to the routers with a wired router connected to my main desktop windows xp sp and also have a second physical Connecting to my wireless and cable routers at the same time (pos double bandwidth?) landline in my office with another wireless router connected to it My work provide this even though it s not really necessary Both connect to a meg internet service I can put an smc dongle in my desktop and connect no problem to the office wifi router this at the same time as the wired router being connected Looking at the firewall log the outbound and inbound traffic then you see both IPs for my desktop and through the office router being used by the machine There is however no real change in the maximum bandwidth I downloaded a large workfile and it maxed out at the same kbps My question is can i configure this set-up to utilise the full megs available to me through the one machine With my office line getting very little use and my area only having modest meg max speed it seems a shame not to take this option if it was available Many thanks if you can help nbsp
This has been desired by many people, but it does not work
Why? It is a routing problem. Your current routing is shown bynetstat -r
To do what you want, you would need Asynchronous Transfer Mode where each packet can
be individually routed (and that takes special hardware and software)
As is, EVERYTHING gets routed to your Default Gateway on the interface where the connection was created.
If the connection goes to IF#1, then all traffic will go/come on that IF.
my computer is put together from like a couple other computers but it runs internet and everything fine.
i just put a new graphics card in it but dont have the disk to install it.
when i have the card in the computer prior to turning on the computer the computer will turn on but nothing gets sent to the monitor unless the graphics card is out of the computer when i turn it on and put it in afterwards. the card gets power to it and everything but dont seem to be working.
if anyone can help me that would be super! i miss playing wow THANKS
you answered your own question, you need the drivers for the card.
I have a computer being used at home as a server for backing up to etc.
Is there any way that I can use both ethernet ports on my mobo to link to the router to allow more bandwidth for this PC?
This isn't linked to internet speed at all, I realise that. It's so that I can get the most speed out of multiple tasks like streaming music, backing up etc.
Any help will be appreciated.
Hey all, me and my 2 housemates are at uni and we live in quite a busy area for internet traffic. At peak times our downspeed is about 1Mbit, but they still insist on downloading and torrenting anyway.
We have a netgear router plugged into the cable modem, which is plugged into a wall socket, so i only have access to the netgear smartwizard software to take any action.
i blocked all ports between 10000 and 65000 on one of my housemates, to stop his torrents, but becuase the other one wants to use Steam to play COD ect, i cant really do that to him.
What i would like to do, is learn how i can limit their bandwidth to something fair while our internet sucks at peak time.
Plus maybe get a little extra for myself since im the only one who bother to look into this.
and maybe a little extra bandwidth for those NFL streams =D
Ahh the dreaded torrent downloading... I have fought the same fight.
Hopefully Sony stands up and shows their true colors and ends all this sometime soon.
For now, if you tell us what router you have (model #, etc.), you should be able to setup a " Quality of Service" feature, and specify priority for all traffic from a computer on your network by giving the computera name, specifying priority and entering its MAC address.

I am currently running a home network with 3 PCs running through a Linksys BEFSR41(ver. 3) ethernet switch from my PC. What is the easiest way to limit the bandwidth availability to the other two PCs? I have the latest firmware for the router, but it does not support the QoS option of limited bandwidth. All PCs on the network are running Windows XP. Thanks for any help you guys can give.
the answer is to buy a dam expensive cisco router....
no seriously home routers arent equipped with this kind of software so there is no way of doing it.

errmm your install is faulty and needs redoing, i would check the disk for quality and do a test on your RAM as well.
One of my sticks of RAM is giving me trouble. Can anyone recomend a good testing program?

my problem is i need to get my digital input to have a playback slider not just record slider so what i am saying is my blue hole anolog has a rec level and playback slider but my digital only has rec level. so on the blue hole line in all i need to do is turn up the playback slider and i get sound from my device. but in digital input wont allow me to do that i can only rec then playback i need it to be live does anyone know a program that lets u controll playback fuctions that windows properties is missing?
what functions do you need?
I was wondering if anyone knew of a program for duplexing a microphone input If you don t know what duplexing is it s basically just taking the input stream and sending it back out so you can hear what you re saying as you say it I m using a USB mic so I can t JUST use stereo mix though I do program? Microphone duplexing end up using that The reason I ask is because Microphone duplexing program? I m looking for a way to chat with a friend on skype while having both his and my voice come out of my speakers along with some music I might be playing I figured out a way to do it using Voice Changer Diamond but it s debilitatingly complicated to set up Here s what I have to do Set my sound output to my sound card speakers and the input to the headset mic Open up Voice Changer and test it to make sure everything sounds ok coming out Change the sound input to Stereo Mix which turns any sound output into an input Talk into the mic and make sure that my voice is still going through the Voice Changer program Changing any settings will set the input in the program to Stereo Mix Open up Windows Media Player and turn the volume WAY down like Open up a sound recording program and record a quick clip to make sure it all works right It took me a while to figure this out but it works I can effectively play my voice and any other sounds coming through my speakers as one single stream for recording or streaming live to sites like Stickam or Justin tv What this basically does is Voice Changer duplexes my voice making everything I say come out my computer speakers then I play some music and it also comes out of the speakers but it has to be quiet enough that it won t drown out my voice hen I can load up Skype and have my friend call me I can use my Microphone as the input for Skype and it ll mix with my voice and the music Anywho I just wanted to know if someone knew a simpler way short of buying a non-USB mic I don t have the money for that If there s a program somewhere that will let me actually select which microphone I want to use as input and keep it that way that would be great perfect for what I need nbsphttp://www.techspot.com/community/topics/microphone-duplexing-program.135624/

I'm looking for some backup. There is a little argument that has been started at my workplace regarding internet usage and the service constantly dropping. I claim that it isn't 'dropping' it just 'simply put' can only handle so much information at a time. There are a couple workers who constantly download from P2P sites, and if it's a popular download, and there are a lot of peers seeding, the files are downloading at a high rate of speed; at times, probably limiting our T5 connection, which is why I claim that the service is being bogged down. Possibly, a better router would help, but I think it's in the modem supplied from the ISP that would control it. Anybody have any thoughts on this? Am I right?:suspiciou
Each additional computer on that T5 connection can cause the internet delivery to be divided among all computers online...
Maybe it could benefit from a different router, or maybe not. Talk to your service provider. Let them look at your usage from their home site... They control the speed, more often than the cable modem controls the speed... and what they deliver could be fluctuating wildly.
Get a good broadband speed tester. There are many free ones online... you can try several with a Google search until you find one that is satisfactory for you.
what is the best overclocking program

If you're starting fresh, have you defragged your system? You HDD is probably 'hopping everywhere' to find anything.
ok, so i know that this question has been asked a few times already but i am in need of a free program to burn dvds. i have downloaded some movies to my pc and now im having trouble finding a good program that will allow me to burn them to disc. obviously they are not all the same type of files, some are avi. some are mp4 files etc. i can covert them to other formats, but so far i havent been able to burn them.
if anybody knows of a program that will do what im looking for please let me know.
If you want free dvd burnung program you can find it via google easily. i found one program called InfraRecorder, but i didnt test it so i dont know if it works. just type infrarecorder in google and go to their website. on the righ menu somewhere you have download link. its a small program, just 3.19MB.
I want to put this up just encase anyone had the same problem I did and if I remember correctly there were a few people that posted the same problem on other forums The problem When I ran anything very graphically intensive like crysis furmark or when I ran a game without vsync on my PC would crash and I would just see lines on the screen or just see blackness 4850 Crashing problem solved I even got a replacement for my card and they said it was faulty and sent me a new one but it still happened just less often Solution In your bios set the pcie frequency to not auto How came to this conclusion I had just helped my friend build a PC for the first time and he had done a lot of research and as we were overclocking his CPU he mentioned that he heard you should set the pcie frequency on your motherboard to not auto or it will overclock itself during intense graphics After I had a few more crashes I remembered him mentioning this 4850 Crashing problem solved so I tried it and no more crashing not even in furmark So thanks to him I don t have to worry about crysis cashing anymore and I can finally overclock nbsp
Hey thanks for posting this!
I have the same videocard 4850 and it gave the same problems and i didn't know why.
Thanks for posting this (I thought i was the only one).

A bios update might help, and you might try reinstalling the chipset drivers from the ASUS Support using your motherboards model number
Can u plz tell me about a program that can tell me what processes are using my bandwidth and tells me exactly how much they sent and received....
First things first... If you don't have free Malwarebytes, Glary Utilities and a decent free antivirus, get these and scan your computer. Tell us a little about your computer and the operating system
Nevermind. Thanks for checking, but I sorted it out.
Nevermind, I figured it out.
My network has 2 PC's, one of which had XP installed when purchased. The other had Windows 98, and has been recently upgraded to XP. I want to be able to access any file from either machine. On the PC that was upgraded from Win 98, I have set Drive C to be shared. The other PC can access any file, including those in the Program Files folder. It can, for example, run PaintShop Pro across the network, even though it's not installed on that machine.
I have set Drive C on the other PC to be shared, but I cannot access its Program Files folder from the (former) Win 98 PC. I get "Access Denied" messages.
Does anyone know how to allow complete sharing of all files?
You need to set both share permissions and the file permissions on disk.
No need to specifically share the drives BTW. Windows automatically enables administrative shares in the form of c$ d$ etc.
my C drive is only an 80G and right now 60G of it is full of apps. I rather like these apps and I don't want to uninstall them. Is it possible to actually move the whole folder to my terabyte and just fix the shortcut paths as needed, or is it more complicated than that?
Yes, it is possible to do that. It's called ghosting. Acronis and Norton Ghost are two of the best programs on the market for doing this. Good luck!
My Hotel has limited my Internet bandwidth to around 5-7 kbps. I was surfing/downloading at around 150 kbps 4-5 days ago.
Is there any way around it by changing the MAC or IP address??
If they are controlling bandwidth for one, it will be applied to ALL, so don't waste your time.
If you need more, try some local hotspot
After booting windows xp fine, and coming up to the desktop, the desktop is stable as well...
however when any program is launched for more than few seconds (trillian, itunes, ut2k4), the computer simply reboots without any warning
tried another HD... same problem. any ideas what could cause this?
Is your pc overclocked? If so, downclock it a little to see if that helps. Have you run a decent virus scanner? A virus could certainly cause the problem you describe. And finally, open the case up and get rid of all dust as this can make the cpu, mobo, graphics card, and memmory overheat which could also cause the problem.
Hope that helps. Rik.

Hi all I googled looking for solutions to problems recovering a Compaq Presario computer and found a link here so I thought I would post a possible solution I have stumbled across Make sure the system you are recovering has been restored to FACTORY SPECS That means removing anything that wasn t in it when it was new PC Name Recovery solved problems brand I just tried to restore a Name brand PC Recovery problems solved Compaq Presario SR AN with a new hard drive in it from a new set of HP supplied recovery disks I got one error after another with problems copying files to the Name brand PC Recovery problems solved hard drive I got as Name brand PC Recovery problems solved far as a reported of the installation before I was forced to stop It reported problems copying Driver CAB and Base INP I managed to get Driver Cab installed by putting in a recovery disk from a different set but no way could I get Base INP to work After suggestions from HP that the Motherboard wasn t plugged in WTF I tried dismantling the machine and reseating the CPU that I had previously removed in cleaning and reseating the undisturbed DVD IDE cable and the HDD IDE cable I also removed the extra MB of RAM that the customer had installed to take the system from the factory supplied up to I then re-ran the recovery process with absolutely no problems I believe there was no problem with the seating of the cables or CPU I believe the main problem with the system was that the recovery process baulked when it discovered more RAM than HP had installed and would not continue I know next time I have to recover an HP Compaq or other brand OEM system I will be ensuring that the system is COMPLETELY back to FACTORY SPEC nbsp
I take it that the extra 256Meg of Ram did not originally come from HP
I'm not sure if that's relevant or not, but even same rating Ram (but different manufacture) has been known to cause issues (ie best to use exactly the same Ram cards always)
I was discussing a similar matter earlier on here: Windows will not boot with more than 2gb of ram (although the emphasis in that thread was the 2Gig max, before installing Windows, and strangeness of having increased ram in a system)
Either way, thanks for your post, it was interesting to note this issue (and likely cause)
Many times during a Setup fault, I have advised members to remove extra Ram cards and try again. It may be that the originally recorded Ram (under re-imaging) may be the answer (on some computers that may have Setup problems) Sadly you would need to test this issue on 10 similar, same spec, computers to really confirm. Or contact HP technical support, or possibly their tech forum, to ask of others experiences.
Of late I found my desktop PC crashing now and then. The situation was getting worse by the day and it was becoming frustrating to use the PC.
I opened the box and got my fingers dirty, so before I looked further I decided to blow out all the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Loads of dust billowed out. I would recommend holding the CPU fan blades so that it does not spin uncontrollably.
After the dust clean up, the PC is working great and no unwanted crashes. I guess the dust was preventing the cooling of the CPU.
Thanks for the info

Due to my slow connection I'd like to know how the computers will share the bandwidth? Will they always diviede it in three (42,66 kbps/computer) or will it depend on how much each computer needs at any given point?
the network is uncontrolled, but pragmatically, the ability of the remote server to provide replies
becomes the controlling factor.
each request from your system is sent in a chunk which is consumed and then a follow-up
read for the next chunk until all have arrived. your system does little compared to the remote host
with 128/64 (kb i assume it's dial-up), you best avoid videos and music !
As you can see by the attachments that my program icons have all somehow changed to a white box with a blue top. When I double click on them to install I get that black window. If I wait for about 5 to 10 seconds the program will eventually start to install.
Please help me.

Me and my wife share a home with my sister and her husband. i have a Belkin wireless router with my computer and xbox 360 hooked to the ethernet ports in the back of the router and my sisters computer is using the wireless connection. For some reason her computer likes to hog all the bandwidth even while she is doing normal browsing. its a real drag on the computer and especially online gaming on my xbox 360. i was wondering if there is any possible way to limit the bandwidth that goes to her computer, i dont want to cut her off completely just kinda even the bandwidth out so its not a drag on everyone. im a brother in distress please someone help me out tell me there is a way to experiance good online gaming again!!! LOL. any help is appreciated thanks
the quick answer is No, not unless you invest in an expensive Cisco type router with bandwidth control capability,
The question should be why does the PC drag the net down to the degree that it does? sounds like viral or spyware activity to me, i suggest visiting the virus section and follow the 8 steps method to at least check.
If it all checks out ok, then why not suggest some kind of time sharing, make time for your gaming and give her time for the PC.
what is a good dvd player program? windows media player and VLC wont work. any suggestions?
i use NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder but you have to pay for it. im sure there are some free ones

Try reinstalling iTunes!! Or get a USB keyboard, theres a link i will post you but your gonna hav to be a little patient as i cant send you that link until i have five posts here lol
Can anyone help me? I'm quite desperate here.
I'm having problem with my keyboard/USB.
When I press any key on the keyboard, that instant all USB devices are disconnected. And soon after I unpress it, the system will detect all USB devices like they were just plugged in. I say all USB devices, cause it doesn't matter USB mouse or USB drive, they all get disconnected.
It's frustrating me cause I can't use a USB mouse.
I'm using a Lenovo 3000 N100 0689GRA.
How many USB ports does that have? and what are connecting them. If you could also please look in your event viewer (Start>control panel>administrative tools>eventviewer, and check the "SYSTEM" area. double click any item in that list for a detailed description. You should see some errors.
I just recently bought an external HDD I have GIGs of MP s that i have bought off of iTunes pictures and many other items of personal value and I want them off my Desktop and on that external HDD but for this to happen i have to sit for hours in front of the computer and select files to transfer over manually a few at a time so i dont lock up the computer i dont have the time to do this nor the patience Is there a program i download that will do this automatically for me Just one program to securly copy or even move from PC to Hard Large PC To Need Ext a Program of to Good HDD Amount Files Transfer from drive by telling it to move or copy these certain directories to this ext HDD one by one without me being there P S Need a Good Program to Transfer Large Amount of Files from PC To Ext HDD It getting closer to winter time so its the perfect temperature set that sucker next to an open window on the second story of my apartment to prevent from over heating while it does this it over night - nbsp
ummmm... i've never heard of a program that will copy things for you, im not even sure what it would do.
I think you should just select all the files you want to copy and then leave it over night, thats what I just did with my crap.
Advantage/ disadvantage between xp vs intel pro wireless program??
There is probably a slight advantage over XP's driver

I have a dell axim x3 that I recently dusted off to use for my business. I have been trying to figure out the sync process for the calendar. Unfortunately I do not appear to have the necessary software on my computer to do this. So the question is, what is the software I need to sync my appointments, etc, to my desktop, or laptop for that matter?
Try using Windows ActiveSync
I get the message "Hardware error 1024 please consult your program vendor" when I boot up the computer. I suspect this could be the internal modem which I think is seriously sick. I have reformatted the HDD but not loaded the drivers for the modem for this reason. What does the message mean? I have searched the internet but cannot find an answer. I am on broadband and I think the internal modem is dial up.
Please Please help!
hardware error 1024
I think I have found the solution. You have to download the CD from the speedtouch website. After the downloaded is completed, click on the driver folder and there will be an option to repair the software.
So i bought my new 2 sea gate drives,and as before like i said the previous hds was randomly getting dced etc,now when i bought the new drives worked great then started to do the same thing as the previous drives,not being picked up in bios etc,then i decided to change the plug in my ultra x3 800 watt psu to a molex to sata connection,that worked picking up the hds no problem,
so does it sound like a wire issue or the psu giving the issue?cause as soon as i switched it to the molex to sata instead of the other sata connect in the utra x3 which uses different wires and different ports it worked.
a waste of 184 but i got better hds and i can just sell the 2 500 gig wd drives i got
Ok yes it does seem like a faulty Power Supply
Also you should have just replied to your original thread: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic107883.html
Instead of making this new one.
But oh well !
Anyway, if the molex do not cause any issue, then you could continue with them
I wish you had tried that before. I didn't suggest it, because it is uncommon (very uncommon), especially with two !
hi everyone.. m new here...
listen, i got a ADSL Modem (provided by Airtel Broadband) which is shared by me and my friend. i'm connected to the router via ethernet and my friend via the usb.. after connecting like this i found out that i'm getting bandwidth deficient, my internet speed has become very slow.. my friend uses u-torrent a lot. I know this is happening coz of bandwidth sharing..
I want to know if there is some cool software that can put a bandwidth throttle to ensure dat both party get atleast a threshold bandwidth limit and doesn't go below dat.. also plz tell me if and how to find out if my friend is 'bandwidth limiting' my system using a 3rd party software or any other way..... guyz and gals plz help on this..........
The only way to achieve this is to buy an expensive Cisco router with bandwidth control built in.
There is no software that can do this.

I recently went from-
512mb 1 DIM to 2gig (2x1gig) DDR 333 (PC 2700)
After installation, the computer recognizes the full 2gig, but things seem kinda weird.
Is there a program (freeware if possible) that can check the ram in some way shape or form to see that it is operating properly.
Create a bootable disc running Memtest

I m not totally helpless when it comes to computers but apparently I m very incompetent when it comes to fixing the sound My family bought a new computer and it program only for works in soundcard Sound my the s decent and has updated sound drivers and everything and it came with Realtek HD Audio Manager The soundcard is a Realtek High Definition Audio I really really hate this program at this point From day one the only sound that would play was the music for the D audio demo After fiddling around with it for a few days I finally got it to play all audio my itunes sound from youtube videos everything It was fine Actually It was fine for my file on the computer but it never did end up working on my Dad s He got fed up with it and the fact that I couldn t fix it for Sound only works in the program for my soundcard his so he took it in and tried to get some answers Sound only works in the program for my soundcard Apparently the guy at the computer place hooked it all up to speakers and it was just fine It worked on all files for everything Okay sweet I hooked it all back up and what do you know Same ing problem Except now I can t remember how I made the sound play on all other applications and I need to try and figure it out for the whole computer We have new Bose speakers they play the audio demo so I know that s not the problem I ve checked device manager and control panel and such to make sure the computer recognizes the speakers the programs the drivers and everything I m really not sure what else I can check for Any ideas And yes before anyone asks it is plugged in right Speakers are plugged into the light green port nbsp
I'm pretty sure it is. The computer has them all located and says they're working, so I assume that means whatever needs to be selected, is.
I have Windows XP, if that makes any difference whatsoever.
For some weeks my offices incoming internet access has maxed out This has only been going on during Monday to Wednesday making it impossible to use the internet or to access the LAN over the VPN I have put an IP range block for subnets on the Cisco ASA firewall however alot of the Internet pages will maxing out Bandwidth not Bandwidth maxing out load properly missing images tables etc for example microsoft com or they do not load at all If I release the IP range block we lose our access again I know something internally is trying to access a website - or trying to send information back to this IP range however I cannot find which system it is I have checked network use on local systems shut each pc down within minutes to see if the line frees up checked everything bar the coffee machine for viruses using different av packages Does anyone know of any software which I can install which will monitor the PC s Network Internet access Please dont suggest Ethereal or such like as my colleague tried this against my wishes and now has years of information to read through Thanks nbsp
try logging all new connections in the Cisco router.
We have a new user that has returned, she is at a remote location, so she logs on via Terminal Services. If we log into the Terminal Server as her from the home office we cannot access the network program, and she cannot from her remote location, either. If we log on as her on one of the computers here at the home office, we can access the program just fine. If we log into the Terminal Server as ourself, we can open the program. We just tried deleting the user and recreating it, and there was no change. Anyone have any suggestions?
What is your network, and who is your provider?
Hey All, I have a computer with 256mb ram and i want to upgrade to 512mb but i do not know if my computer can support that much, so i was wondering, are there any programs i can download that can determine the amount of ram my system can support? I do not have any manuals for this computer as i built it myself and cannot seem to find any info about this motherboard on the net.
Well, CPU-Z dosnt tell me the Make and model of my motherboard, but it does say that the chipset is Via Apollo Pro.
