Preferred Solution: size does matter

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: size does matter

abd ub jpeg my photo Click to expand...

pardon?

to reduce the size of an image you just need an image editor of some description, the professional app of choice is of course photoshop, which has an extremely useful 'save for web' function that performs this task.

The more widely available (ie cheaper) app is paintshop pro, which you can d/l a demo from jasc.com.

I wouldn't be surprised however, if you existing kodak easyshare had some facility to reduce the (physical) size of an image, is there an option on one of the menus or toolbars to reduce the pixel size and/or the dpi resolution? You may find your photo is currently in several megapixels; the default maximum for the camera that took the photo. If it's just to be used for browsing onscreen, eg on a webpage or similar, then it only needs to be 72pdi which would save a massive amount of file space.

I was reading in a Pc Gamer mag. and one of thier suggestions (for better gaming performance) was to turn the Grafic apature size to 1/2 your video card ram meaning, if you have lets say a 256mb card to set the apature size to 128mb in the bios? They didn't give a reason for this, can anyone tell me why I would want to do this? And would it make that big of diffrence? My first impression was that it had something to do with Virtual memory tapping, but i'm a *****...LOL can someone please enlighten me?? Oh I know there was alot of discussion on hyperthreading but would I be smart to turn it off as well when gaming?

Thx friends, Power
 

A:Apature size, does it matter that much?

Apperture size is the amount of system that you're willing to let the VGA card use for AGP texturing.

Now it's quite hard to fine a single answer on that matter. Some say it should half the size of your system memory, some say it should be equal to or half the VGA memory, some say Saturn needs to be aligned with Jupiter for it to work, etc.

If your VGA card has a lot of onboard Ram, you're not likely to be very affected by AGP apperture. Set it to something not too small, & it should not be more then half your system memory, so if you have 512 mb of Ram, set it to 256 max ( I believe the max setting for AGP apperture is 256 mb anyways ).

Size on HDD over twice the actual size date I've generally used ExFAT and the GPT partition map because it allows me to use it on all of my computers and I have always used the default cluster size However I do not think the default size was the best decision for me because the size on disk is over TWICE the actual size If I am correct the default Win cluster size is k and that going BELOW that is useful for the drives I have many smaller files on Is this correct Additionally the smaller cluster size I go the slower the drive will write correct Also if so how low do you advise going I am still torn between reformatting outright or trying one of the programs that allows changes to a currently in-use drive Any advice Thanks

A:Hard drive cluster size issues? Size on HDD over twice the actual size

For the a sector size of 4k to double your disk utilization you'd have to have a really tiny average file size. From your numbers shown the average size if I calculate it correct is 132kb (unless you have 1 massive file and 17,711 tiny ones) so a 4k size will make no difference.

You could check with TreeSize Free - it will tell you if you right click on the status bar and select it to be displayed.



EDIT - having checked the default for ExFat is 128k for drives over 32GB (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/140365) and when I tried to format an external USB drive that is what it picked. According to macbook - Reformat exFat with specific Device Block Size and Cluster Size - Ask Different OSX picks 128k also.

So if you had 128k as your cluster size minimum disk utilization would be 17,772 files * 128k = 2.17GB. So if all your files were just over this (say 132k which looks like your current average size) you would be using 4.44GB add a couple of big files and it could easily be 6GB.

I would check your average file sizes and also your current cluster size (you can use chkdsk as described in the AskDifferent link above).

The default is 4k for NTFS and I have always formatted ExFat as 4k also. Depending on your current setting reformatting 4k looks like a good idea.

As for how - copying the data elsewhere, formatting and then copying it back has to be the easiest, safest and most likely fastest way. You'll also get the disk defragmented automatically. There are tools to do it but they seem to have limitations and I wouldn't bother if you have a spare disk.

150% size zoom in corrupts Chrome and Adobe Reader - Windows Forum - Computer Support Forums
I have my Windows set to 150% zoom (otherwise it becomes hard to aim at the little buttons in order to click them) It's really nice to have the buttons really big in the list of options that come up when I press the Windows button on the left of Alt button.

But the problem is that it blows up Chrome and Adobe Reader so that it almost becomes unuseable.

Firefox and Internet Explorer is ok. Foxit Reader is ok.

Also, time to time the Chrome appears ok when I log in (not sure about Adobe Reader) but then when I sign out and log in again the overblownness appears again.

A:150% size zoom in makes Chrome and Adobe Reader overblown size

My experience is that the 150% only really works if you are using a high resolution, say 1920x1080.

If your native resolution is much lower than that you are going to get bleed over ... text running outside of the buttons they are meant to label... stuff like that.

Have you tried just using large icons instead of blowing up all text and buttons?

I have Win XP SP2, all updated, Word 2002, SP3.

Choosing say A4 for page setup, setting it to 100% and viewing as Print layout, at 100% used to give a screen size page which was actually equal to A4 ie 21cm x 29.7cm.

For some time now, the screen size is now larger than that - the ruler at the top and bottom shows the marking as being 21cm x 29.7cm, but the cm units on the ruler are marked off at larger than cm units, consequently the screen size page is larger than actual.

This is annoying as it is not an accurate representation of the page layout for things on the page relative to each other.

Any ideas what has caused this and how to fix?

My 32GB Windows 10 Home PC (recently upgraded from 8.1) is low on disk space. I deleted Windows.old and I have hibernation disabled. Apart from a few browsers, very little else is installed, yet I only have 11.7GB left?

One reason may be the size of the Windows folder:
Size 14.7GB
Size on Disk 9.91GB

From my calculations, Windows appears to be using the higher figure in determining available disk space.

Why is 'Size' so much greater than 'Size on Disk', can I do anything about it? I have a similar 8.1 machine, it does not have this disparity (12.4GB and 12.3GB).

What would be a normal 'Size' for a Windows folder on Windows 10 Home PC very recently upgraded from 8.1 i.e. with few, if any Windows live updates run ?

A:Windows Folder Size greater than Size on Disk

I imagine its because windows compresses some system files currently it may be using 9gb but with all files uncompressed you may be looking at 14 which is why it uses the higher value

Windows 10.

I am having much fun grappling with my displays. I say grapple because I CANNOT see the text!

I have a laptop, with a display that has up to 2048x resolution and an external monitor that does 1920x. I have tried to keep both set the same resolution so the mouse will easily go back and fort.

If I bump one setting, others seem to change. Like after an update too!

I need a script, to set, then set again, and again, the
display settings,
the custom scaling level, and
the "change only text size".

Keeping the monitor placement geometry the same would be great for me too.

Oh for a cross reference on Outlook 2013 to the system setting. I keep manipulating the view settings there too.

Probably to get started I could use a "settings display" script.

Other programs don't seem to be affected, ie when naming/renaming files or installing programs into custom locations font size is normal. I don't know if it is only system restore that has this problem but it's the only program i've come across that is suffering.

I must have looked at & changed something without realizing it. The actual number of records appears to be correct. How can examine and/or compare tables or other internals between the two sizes?

A:Access file size increased in size by 50%

The only reason I've seen for a database to get very large is when there is a picture (JPG file) used in a form. Apparently Access does not do a very good job with storing this type of data. Perhaps your database has an image stored as a data item in a table (or some other place.) Other than that...no idea why you should see such a large size.

Alternately, you can create a new empty database and then copy each object from your current database to the new one, one at a time, and check the size of the new database after each copy. That will at least identify which object is causing the problem.

I want to increase the type font display size globally, for all applications & windows features, but I want to preserve the smaller desktop icon size. Is there any way to adjust them independently?

I know about the advanced display settings for window color & appearance, and that has some good settings, but it is not sufficient, because it does not change most instances of text as it displays in applications.

Thanks for any suggestions.

A:Any way to change type size but NOT icon size?

Here's my whole list of font size change settings, one of which might provide the answer for you. You've probably tried some of them, but see if there's something here that might change the font size on those icons, without changing the size of the icons themselves:

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there?s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

6. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, General, Accessibility, Select Ignore font sizes specified on web pages. Click OK, then Apply, then OK.

7. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, uncheck all three:
Reset text size to Medium for new windows and tabs, and
Reset text size to Medium while Zooming, and
Reset Zoom level to 100% for new windows and tabs

8. Open Internet Explorer, click the Page button, click Text Size, and then select the size you want i.e. Large (Largest may be too large).

9. Ease of Access Center ? Go to either: Control Panel, All Control Panel Items, Ease of Access Center, Make Your Computer Easier to Use, Explore All Settings, and click on: Make this computer easier to see (Optimize Visual Display). OR go to Control Panel, and Explore all settings. Under the following heading, Make things on the screen larger, select: Change the size of text + icons. This takes you to the dpi settings screen.

10. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, use command/ctrl + your scroll on a web page to increase the font size.

As you can see from the screenshot , this is what i have had and continue to have as far as storage on my computer .

Judging from the screenshot what size SSD in terms of GB would you recommend ?

Thank you

A:Looking at my HD info what size SSD in terms of size to recommend ?

You're only using 30 GB.

If you don't figure that is going to grow significantly, 80 or maybe 120 ought to be plenty. You are the world's foremost authority on how fast your storage requirements might grow.

Mine is 80, growing at maybe 2 GB per year, mostly because of Windows updates. But I don't keep data on C.

Larger SSDs are somewhat faster, but I don't think you'd ever notice the difference except in a benchmark.

Hi i'm clearly new here and was hopping to get some thoughts.I was told that a strong enough magnet would disrupt my wireless cam and was wondering if that was true?
 

A:Help on this matter

Hello and welcome to TSG.
Well im no expert on magnets or magnetism, but as far as i am aware anything to do with magnets (either natural, manufactured or electromagnetic), and anything electrical should always be avoided as much as possible. Even such minor things as "coiling up" excess cables can effectively turn themselves into electromagnets and thus disrupt electrical fields. So i would say yes it is possible. Whether the magnetic field disrupts the actual signal or the cam itself, i cannot say.

I think WINRE_DRV and System_DRV are 2 hidden partitions required on GPT disks that are used with Windows. They were likely placed there during the Windows installation by default.

In that situation, you don't want C to be active.

As far as I know, you can convert a GPT disk to MBR, but I think you have to remove all partitions first.

Not sure about the above as I don't use GPT disks.

I have 4X512 dimms of Kingston, PC3200 400MHz, dual channel mode.

Because they are in AMD environment (Athlon 64 3200+, 2GHz, Asus A8V-Deluxe s.939), my timings are just 3-3-3-8. Also its 2T(instead of 1T), 333MHz(instead of 400). They told my that I cannot do anything to change these numbers, because I have 4 sticks in amd platform.

So, I m thinking of buy 2 new kingstons of 1GB each(2X1GB), replacing the existings 2X512. After that I ll have totally 3 GBs of ram (2X512, 2X1024) Of course I ll put them in the right position so that I ll have dual channel mode(1st module:512, 2nd:1024, 3rd:512, 4rth:1024).

The queries are:
Is it a good idea to make such a movement?
Will timings be better? Will I have T1 and 400MHz?
How much improvement shall I see? 20%? 30%? 50%?

Hi I have matter no loud CPU what Fan a custom computer I built and I m having real problems with how loud it had gotten Recently my friend gave me his old processor P GHz with HT and its running CPU Fan loud no matter what on my new mother board ASUS P CPU Fan loud no matter what NSLI and it has been running so loud that it keeps me up I have to open my window to let in degree air to slow the fan down There was one fan already in the case that was sucking air out on the panel side and i recently purchased another one to put in the back near the cpu to blow air in and it made about Zero difference and its putting a good amount of air in My heat sink is just a intel that came with the CPU The fan speeds run as follows at rpm when the CPU is C This is relatively quiet but still can easily tell that the computer is running but this is with the window open haha once i close the window the temp is still at C but it will run at rmp- rmp which is enough to wake me up note these temps are mostly unaffected by cpu usage when i run transcode for my converts an avi file into wmv as fast possible to play through media center If the window is open no sound and the cpu is under rather a heavy load but in the same respect if the window is closed and I m not even using my computer its like a highway in my room The Computer itself isn t in a confined area either it is out in the open in a place where air circulates easily So my though that was maybe i need to mess with the settings in BIOS since i have never really touched them in new computer Any suggestions on what to do whether it is through the BIOS or just how I placed the fans in the case thankyou nbsp

A:CPU Fan loud no matter what

You may be able to change the thresholds for temperature in the bios on whether it kicks the fan into high speed or not.

I'd also suggest taking that fan you put in the back of the case and reverse it so it blows air out, thats traditionally how its done, and makes more sense with the air dynamics inside a case. Fans on the side panels or the front typically blow air into the case, so I'd suggest doing that as well.

You can pull the heatsink off the processor (with the comp shut down of course) and clean it off with 99% Isopropyl alcohol and reapply some thermal paste. Artic Silver seems to be the consensus for doing that, but you can also get away with the thermal paste Radio Shack sells if you must.

A final thing you could do is get an aftermarket heatsink and fan that will run quieter and cool better.

I would appreciate if someone would explain the significance of DVD regions. I rented an old movie from my local library. When I tried to play it on my Windows 7 machine, there was a message that the DVD was purchased in region 1, my computer DVD drive was set for region 2, and I needed to change the region. Since there is a limited number of region changes that can be made, I decided not to make the change and did not watch the movie.
 
Would someone please explain the technical background as to why regions matter? And why did Microsoft decide to limit the number of region changes for Windows 7?

A:DVD regions - why do they matter?

1.  Just read what Wikipedia has to say about region codes yourself.
 
2.  If you use VLC Media Player it will play any region code DVD without a fuss.

I have even changed RAM..nothing happend.SO finally thought that maybe it was the HDD.

So i bought a new one (Maxtor 40GB) and now when i am trying to install windows 2000 it freezes again in the installation part (you know the blue screen)!!!
What else can be wrong???

sounds like mine, removed everything still happened, BIOS was the problem - it changed some of the settings itself. look at ram spped in bios - mine was set to wrong speed. maybe this will solve your problem, it fixed mine.

Seeing that this is your first post, I will say "welcome to TechSpot"!

Next, I know this has you a bit miffed, I've been down your road of computer frustration at one time or another, but your going to have to give us a little bit more information.

How about a small list of all your components?
What type of case your trying to install of this in?
What is your power supply, and what is it's rating?
What Operating System are you using here?

Maybe a slight "step by step" of what you did prior to uninstalling the I.D.E. DVD drive, through that, to installing the SATA DVD drive. If your suspicions are true, and you think that you missed something minor, doing a small 'step by step" thing sometimes takes care of these sort of thing.

So please get back to us, we are here to help!

A:Cannot run Chkdsk no matter what I try

Maybe is it smart if you run an online scan.
Sometimes find an online Virus scan more than the standard Virus scan.
Also think I that it is smart when you have done, that you make a DDS log in the sub forum Am I infected.?
Tip: It is not really smart when you run a Hijackthis tool without experiences.

Having seen the required specs for half life 2, I've decided to upgrade my current ram and purchase an AMD 2500 processor - my current system is a s follows, AMD 1700, 512 DDR ram (generic), softmodded radeon 9500 128 np, W2000k and a 40 gig HD, not top notch kit but enough to play any current game at optimal configuration.
My question is this, my current 2100, 266mhz generic ddr ram works pretty much adequatly and has given me no cause for complaint but on checking prices, find that higher specc'd ram is'nt as expensive as I'd assumed - would purchasing 333mhz or 400mhz ram offer significant increase in performance or are these specs only relevant to hard core modders?
 

A:Does make matter?

333Mhz to 400Mhz, not much.

Compaq CQ50-103nr Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium.

You can see the Wireless User Guide here. My understanding is that the wireless light is orange when the wireless adapter is disabled and blue when enabled. If I press the wireless button, it turns blue for about a half second and back to orange.

I have loaded the drivers furnished by Compaq and I have no exclamation points in Device Manager.

My guess is the wireless adapter is kaput; but, before I spend any money, I would like to know what others here might know about this that I might not.

The power button for this laptop is at center top of the keyboard and the wireless button is just a half-inch to the right of it. It has the wireless symbol on it, lit in orange and it finds no network although I do have a working wireless router on which another laptop here is currently working.
 

A:Wireless LAN indicates it's off no matter what

Unfortunately, a non-working wireless adapter and a wireless light which is permanently amber is a widespread fault with HP & Compaq laptops (Google Search brings up loads of forum posts to prove how widespread it is). My grandaughter's packed up on her Compaq last year and it defied all attempts by me to fix it so I bought her a plug-in USB wireless adapter which solved the problem.

In my daughter's case, the built-in wireless adapter wasn't even listed in Device Manager, which means it isn't even being detected, which usually means the device has failed. Your Device Manager is probably not listing it either (hence no errors are shown).

If the laptop is still under warranty, HP will repair it free of charge (or at least that is what I read on the various forums last year).

I have GigaByte 8I955 Royal which specs 1.8 volt for the ram.

When I went to Newegg.com's memory configuration tool, it comes back with all different voltage rams for me range from 1.8 1.9 to 2.1 volt.

Can I use higher volt ram in my motherboard?

Your help is appreciated!

[email protected]
 

A:Ram Volt Does it matter

You need to check QVL of compatible ram for your motherboard.
1.8v is the motherboard default ram voltage, check in bios to see if you have the option to change the ram voltage.
If you don't have the correct voltage for the ram you will run into booting problems

I know that with a cassette tape, when you go down to the fourth or fifth generation, you can really hear the difference. The sound gets quite muffulled.

But what about CD-Rs?

Can I go down four or five generations and still maintain the same sound quality. I know there are rumours that digital CD-Rs make exact copies, but I thought I'd ask the tech gang to make sure.

Thanks,

My acer Aspire 5738Z has a web cam called a crystal eye. when I downloaded windows 8 saw that it had a simple to use camera app. No matter how I try I cannot get it to work. I have tried every driver I can find even the ones on the Acer support page. I still get the response "camera not found" In fact this is a true statement because I
can't find where the camera is stored on my system. Any advice welcome. I never tried the camera until I changed to windows 8 so I am not sure if it ever worked.

A:WMM glitching no matter what I do! :(

Are you using the WMM that comes with Vista or is this the Windows Live Essentials WMM? If not the latter, I think you are eligible for it with Vista and you might try that version. Otherwise there is Pinnacle VideoSpin which is free and you might find does as much as you need without having to pay for a more capable editor.

Dear Carrie:

Sorry to tell you, but it seems like you must find a fresh new XP cd in order to reinstall it, as well as your previously installed software (provided you had backed up things before the disaster).

If you at least were able to start XP and some other kind of errors were jumping out, maybe something could be done. But don't guide by my opinion only. Here at the forums are some pretty cool geniuses which could help you better than me.

Sorry for not being of much more help

Hi. I posted a long rambling thing a little while ago because I'm looking at a new laptop. Let me cut out all that stuff and get to one point I'm really curious about -- does 64 bits matter?

I know some people say this is just around the corner, but is it a revolution or just hype?

Obviously I am also curious whether there is a point in waiting to buy a new computer until Intel goes 64 bit -- but the computer I have now is ancient and can't run anything anymore, so I probably don't have that luxury.

Still, I wonder what 64 bits actually means. It's my feeling that 32 bits is doing a pretty decent job and going from 8 --> 16 and 16 --> 32 were the real revolutions. But maybe someone has a different take.

i think you are going to have to take the side off and check for any loose connections. make sure if theres a video card that its seated properly .
if you have no success, unplug it and pop the battery out for at least 20 minutes to reset the cmos.
you might need to tweak the bios setup options afterwards.

goodluck and post back

It really doesn't matter where you install programs or games. I just use what the installer has pointed to unless I don't have any space left I go for a different drive.

I'm at my wits end - it didn't take long!

Fixing up an old Intel 845EPT2 for a neighbor. I did a Reinstall of XP, installed all Drivers straight off the Intel Website, and no matter what, there's no Audio.

"No Device Installed" even though the Soundmax appears in System / Devices.

I have double checked Audio is enabled in the BIOS.

I even threw in an old Soundblaster Live!, turned off Audio in the BIOS, installed Drivers and it did the same thing.

I'm running an SFC / SCANNOW .

The weird thing is that it had Audio before {along with a million viruses, which is why I re-installed}

Any ideas, except a litre of Petrol and a Lighter?
 

A:Can't get Audio no matter what

uninstall all your drivers in device manager, go to your C drive and program files, make sure all files related to the drivers, software is deleted, also, do a add remove any software that may use those same sound drivers that you previously uninstalled. turn off machine, take your card out, if you're using onboard, disable in bios, start up, let windows load, if its a sound card installed in a pci slot a "new hardware" window should pop up, install drivers through that dialog box. If its an onboard sound device just simple restart after windows has started up and recognized no sound devices or drivers installed, go back to bios, enable sound, start up, reinstall drivers and software....I hope this helps as I just had this problem last night and had to figure out how to fix it, GL

Hello there I hope I am posting in the right place First off the spec of my laptop AMD Athlon tm II P Dual-Core Processor GHz GB RAM ATI Mobility Radeon HD I run Windows -bit The problem is that I cant seem to run games without getting lag For instance Dragon Age- the only requirement that my laptop might not meet is the processor dual core minimum however I can even top that I can make graphics the best quality or make it the worst it lags almost the same Oblivion that thing requires a Pentium yet I still get lag again the same situation where I can put the best or the worst graphics out? lag is there what, way no matter no Constant on The lag that I am talking about is not terrible for instance the games run at around or more FPS judging by the eye and every once in a while drops to around It is not much but definitely makes the playing experience much less enjoyable I do turn off all of the background programs I even use this little program game booster The hard drive is not crammed to the top I even separated the drive to a few parts for games and for Windows So yea any tips Or am i doomed to play in this ridiculous situation where no matter what Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out? graphic settings you put on you still get lag PS When games are turned on the ventilator blows out quite hot air nbsp

A:Constant lag no matter what, is there no way out?

How big is the hard drive? How big are the partitions? When you partition a hard drive, you waste a lot of space and slow down its data access. Something you never want to do with a laptop

Does it a be able to find a new one anywhere I like the card I have its a strong OC quite high out of the box in my opinion Does it matter if I get a different card for SLI? I can only find used ones and would to prefer to buy new I have been thinking of buying a gt as its basically the same card as far as I can tell Would the performance be a massive amount difference as its not the same model I know this card uses the same chip but every frame extra is going to Does it matter if I get a different card for SLI? help Would I get the same performance if the second card isn t identicial but say a slightly better model like the gtx Also does it matter as much if I change to a different brand I am currently using XFX Thanks nbsp

A:Does it matter if I get a different card for SLI?

I don't think it would matter too much... as long as you stay close to the video card specs

Cat 6 will give you better transfer speeds from computer to computer in your network. it will also auto sense devices. It wont make your internet any faster

Hi i have done a search and not found the answer to my question so i hope someone can help me.

I have installed windows 7 to my main desktop computer and i got the 100 Mb partition, now i have installed win 7 to my laptop the drive was already partitioned on when i look at the drives i have not got the 100 Mb partition, after the search i did on this forum i see the reason i did not get the small partition is because the drive was already partitioned, and this is normal.

But my question is will the instalation work or like this or do i need to remove all the partitions and start again.

Hope someone can advise me.

A:Does it matter about the 100 MB partition

Hi sam49, Im assuming the laptop is booting? If so then you have nothing to worry about

For peace of mind though, please upload a screenshot of Disk Management (search for it in the Start Menu) and we will be able to tell you exactly what is going on.

Ran a debug for you, and I get the following:
Attachment 54020
I think this looks like a driver issue. If you know how to run the driver verifier function, try that. If you've never run it before, be careful... you can get stuck in a BSOD/reboot loop. Here is a tutorial for running driver verifier.

If the driver verifier function makes you too nervous, you could manually search for updated drivers for all of your hardware by going to the manufacturers' websites, one by one, and getting the latest drivers.

i used to have dual boot windows vista and ubuntu and i got rid of ubuntu and the grub boot loader (by using vista recovery cd and using the command bootrec.exe /FixMbr) which i replaced with the vista boot loader from the recovery cd i made but for some reason i dont have BIOS anymore. at all. and when i press f9 to load my recovery partition it gives me the error
PXE E61 media test failure, check cable
PXE M0F exiting pxe ROM

then it loads windows vista and i cannot reformat my computer because of this. i really need to get this done as soon as possible i cannot express how grateful i would be to whoever can help me solve this problem. thankyou.
 

A:URGENT matter.

Vista and the boot-loader have nothing to do with BIOS.

Try a PS/2 keyboard if you are using USB.

You might try resetting CMOS. The machine is trying to boot from the network, possibly because it can't find any OS.

Here is the problem I just recently was given a laptop. I was told that it was hooked up to a tv with HDMI but, there was sound on the laptop. I am running Windows 7 Premium HP Pavilion g7-1318dx Notebook PC
Serial Number: 6CF2085XDS Product Number: A7A43UAR . I have no sound with just notebook speakers. I have went to the HP driver download site and tried to download the audio drivers. I receive a warning " The Hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. Install will now abort." There are 3 Audio downloads on the Hp website none work. The speaker Icon down by the clock with a red X on it when you do a mouse roll over it says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. I have tried headphones still no sound. I have also tried to the windows trouble shooter and it says it detects no problems. Play back devices is only showing Digital Audio (HDMI) High definition Audio device not plugged in. Recording says there are no audio devises are installed in. I have tried everything any help would be appreciated.
 

A:No sound no matter what

I think that you need an extra lead because HDMI gives picture only. The lead I have has a mini stereo jackplug at one end which goes into the computer's headphones socket and two phono plugs (white and yellow) at the other to plug into the TV's audio input at the back. You should then be able to work out how to set up the sound via Control Panel.

is there a way to see this for other screen sizes?

If you want the renderale size, this can be grabbed by a quick bit of javascript accessing the window.screen property (for example). There are other ways as well.

Hello guys, I'm having a HARD time to understand the size descriptions from my Case and Comparing it with the GPU I want to buy.

So my case is a Zalman Z9
::: Zalman, leading the world of Quiet Computing Solutions :::

and the GPU I want to buy is a R9 390x, specificaly this one.

Asus AMD R9 390X Strix Gaming OC Graphics Card (8 GB, GDDR5, PCI Express 3.0, 3 x Display Port, HDMI, DVI-D, 4096x2160, 512-Bit): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Which is supposedly 137.7 millimetres long? Which should be able to get in. However When I look into my case Right now with my XFX Radeon HD 6850 I can see it barelly fits, and it is only fans...

How is a 3fan card gona fit in?

A:Question about case Size and GPU Size

You will have to go with a full tower case, the R9 390x is about 300mm long and the Z9 plus case (mid tower) only can fit in a card that is up to 290mm long.

The full tower Zalman Z11 will fit in the R9 390x without any space issues at all and it will be able to breath properly inside the Z11 as well.

I am confused and obviously not an expert on photography! I have been told that the sensor size is extremely important and that if the sensor size is small, such as in lower priced p and s cameras, there will be poor quality the more the MP size because of noise. So, what IS a good rule of thumb? I have looked at SLR cameras and they may have 14 or 16 MP and not very large sensors themselves, unless we go up to the $1K or more range.

I'd like more zoom, but it seems that in every p and s I find, more zoom seems to go with higher MP and that small sensor once again!

Hi,

I am having trouble with the font size and Pop up boxes size. Both are either too big or too small. I dont know how to solve this problem.

For example if I want to update my Symantic AntiVirus or Install a new program, the Box that opens is either too big or too small and font size too.

Recently I copied some fonts to my folder in Windows folder (Fonts folder).

I think maybe that has caused the problem. But I dont know how to solve it.

Please Help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Muneeb and welcome to TSF !

You could give system restore a try : start => all programs => accessories => system tools => system restore. Select a date in bold prior to when the problem began. You won't lose any personal data but you may need to reinstall any program or update you've installed since then.

Else the system file checker can restore your system fonts. You'll need an XP install CD with service pack 2 (XP Home SP2 or XP Pro SP2 depending on the version you have installed). If your current CD hasn't got service pack 2 then you need to create a slipstreamed CD with SP2. Use one of these guides and report once you have an XP SP2 install CD :

When I open a new window, like This PC or My Documents, I cannot save a larger window. After I close it and then go back to open the window again, it reverts back to a smaller size.

I have gone into View and Options and clicked Restore Defaults and Reset Folders.

I still cannot get windows to remember the preferred and larger size. This changed suddenly within the last week. I don't recall changing the settings, so I am at a loss for how to fix this.

A:how much size can i set java heap size to with 4gb RAM?

According to this IBM article, size your Java heap so that your application runs with a minimum heap usage of 40%, and a maximum heap usage of 70%. Although this is an older article I would guess that the parameters would still apply today.

I have a suspicion that I am missing something very basic indeed. But if I don't ask, I won't know.

When I download images from my digital camera and view them, they show a certain amount of content. When I print them, usually in 6x4 format, a small part of the image gets chopped off - usually the top of someone's head! Could someone please tell me how I can ensure that what I print is what appears on the screen without reducing the content of the original image?

Many thanks

Suddenly, blackout happens...

There'll be data writing failure...

So I checked some of my files(mostly in .iso)... Some of them have very big difference between Files Size & Size on Disk (around 4 GB)...

Does this big difference can make anything goes wrong?

When I right click a file to view it's properties there are two different values shown: one for file "size" and the other for "size on disk". The second value is always larger. Could someone please explain what the difference is because I'm in the process of allocating space for backed up user data on a network share and I need to multiply the average file size by the number of users to get an estimate of how much space to allocate to that share. Thanks in advance!
 

A:file size vs size on disk

Disks are laid out at a base level in sectors, and then in clusters which are groups of sectors.
For example, on a 32GB partition (Fat32) the cluster size is 32000 bytes. On a NTFS system, the standard size is 4K.

Files can only be on a cluster boundary. Therefore, in this example, a file that is 16,000 bytes (file size) will be 32,768 bytes (on disk). And a 40,000 byte file (file size) will be 65,536 bytes (on disk).
Or, on a NTFS system, a 5,000 byte file will take 2 clusters, or 8,192 bytes (on disk)

Do Start > Run > Command and at the prompt enter
CHKDSK

After it runs, the "xxxx bytes in each allocation unit" is the cluster size.

I currently have a 10 MB network. Hub and cards. I plan on moving to a 10/100 hub or a 10/100 switch. I was going to get some network cards for this. Do the brand of network cards really make a difference? Do 3Com (or any other good brand) run any faster or have less problems? Or, can I get cheaper cards - D-Link, Linksys, SMC, etc...? I wouldn't think they mattered much as long as they were all 10/100 and PCI cards and have drivers for my OS's (Win98SE, Win2K - and maybe Linux and ME in the future). So, do brands really matter? Also, is a switch that much better than a hub? - worth the money?

Thanks,

A:Codec-V and IE - and any other browsers for that matter!

codec-v.exe could possibly be malware. Find the file and have it scanned by uploading it to jotti http://virusscan.jotti.org/
Save the log, then copy/paste it back here.
