Preferred Solution: CD & DVD drives don't have 'recording' tabs!

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

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

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

your using nero burning software if you run your pc in user mode you will need "nero burning rights" to be able to burn disks.
if you use your pc in admin mode then you should have full rights to do what ever you like on the pc..
look in my computer to see the rom drive letter or check it in the bios..that it is installed correctly

My Operating System is XP Home. Can anyone walk me through the process of choosing the correct Safe Mode and then accessing the volume tabs for the Recording part of the Realtek HD Audio Manager Mixer portion? I have been advised that this is the only way to access these functions. I would like to utilize the Line-in port on the motherboard (Asus P5KC).

Thanks in advance for any assistance submitted.

RC Pilot

A:Accessing Realtek Mixer Recording Vol Tabs

RC Pilot, you do NOT have to boot into safe mode.

Click on the sound icon in the system tray.
When properties opens, click on OPTIONS, choose Properties, check Advanced Controls.
Next click OPTIONS again, this time choose Properties, then check the circle next to Recording under Adjust Volume For.
Mark each category listed under Show the following volume controls you want to view.
Since you want Line In, make sure it's checked, then click OK.

Check the Select box under Line In.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE SPEAKER ICON, from Start Menu go to Control Panel.
Open up Sounds and Audio Devices/Audio tab.
Click Volume in Sound Recording.

You will have to follow the above procedure using OPTIONS if you don't see Line In.

Hi guys!

We're having an issue with a laptop computer connected to an external screen where the tabs in internet explorer are huge compared to the other browsers. When not connected to an external screen there is no problem with huge tabs. Please see attached screenshot, all help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

A:Huge tabs in internet explorer, edge and chrome have normal sized tabs

Your screen resolution on the external monitor needs to increase in number to reduce the size of the icons and tabs.

I work next to a window that allows a lot of sun in, which is a good thing. Unfortunately when I have Excel open, it is often difficult for me to tell the difference between a worksheet with more than one tab selected, which gets awkward when I change a sheet and the changes go to other sheets which I hadn't intended.

I would like to change my excel program so that when I have selected multiple sheets, it is blatently obvious that they've been selected. Either a deeper shade or a shade in a different color.

This is not the same thing as simply changing a tab color, which I don't seem to have the power to do in the worksheets I work with.

Windows Home Premium SP1 with Media Center... How can I change the end time (eg. increase it by 15 mins) of a TV programme I am already recording?!

I started recording a programme from the Guide - it had already started - I was in a bit of a hurry. But the programme is running late (the time in the Guide is wrong!) - how can I extend the recording time? I can not find this (basic) option anywhere?!

I can extend the recording time (by X mins) for a programme I have scheduled to record at some time in the future (under "Record Settings"), but not for the TV show I am currently recording?!

(The TV show goes on for another hour or so and I want to go to bed...)

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hey, so, I have a strange problem. I'm running firefox 3.6.13. Every once in a while (once or maybe twice a day) when I'm just browsing or whatever a ton new tabs will start opening to youtube homepage. There seems to be no particular cause or time when it happens... just random. Tab after tab after tab, and even when I close them, more will open. This goes on for a few minutes, then stops.

Could this be a firefox problem, or a virus or something else?

Thanks for your help.

Ok so here's my problem: In any program with tabs (FireFox, VMWare Workstation, etc.) the window appears as multiple windows in the taskbar. This is a problem for me because I usually have multiple windows open each with a few tabs. So when I hover over the program on the taskbar I can't tell the difference between separate windows and separate tabs. If anyone here knows how I can fix this I would appreciate your help very much!

When I start up my PC everything goes very slowly, things "chops" or lagged as most say.

It comes up a menu that says:

Have tried most but I find no solutions to this problem, if there is anyone who knows anything about this or can help me, please comment on what I should do.

Thank you!


When I get into the desktop, everything quickly, and I have no problems there ..

What could it be?

A:Detecting drives; Done, No Drives Found - Error and Slow startup

That message would indicate that you have an add on card installed inside your desktop PC that adds SATA ports.

Do you?

I am running Windows XP SP3 right now on a Lenovo 7650-ELU and experiencing some odd problems. For some reason, the laptop I have will not recognize USB Flash Drives that I put into it or External Hard Drives. I know that the USB ports work correctly, because I have plugged in optical mouses and keyboards that work. I searched the forums and didn't see anything like this.

It's odd how when I first insert them, it makes the sound and shows the icon in the taskbar that would allow me to safely remove the device, but nothing else. So far, I have gone into the device manager and uninstalled all the USB ports and restarted hoping this would solve my problem, but it continues to do the same thing.

If anyone has some helpful advise, please post. I appreciate all the help.

This tool provides a two way security by vaccinating both computer and/or USB drives.
It work on NTFS, FAT, FAT32 formatted drives.
However, vaccinating a USB drive cannot be undone without formatting the USB disk, using a hex editor, or a File Manager in a Linux distribution..

Next, make sure that your Antivirus can scan USB drives. Some do not have this option.

I have a pc that has 2 400g hard drives in raid 0. The motherboard is bad and needs to be replaced. The drives in raid 0 are sata drives; I want to mirror the drives onto 2 400g pata drives before replacing the mobo so in case of disaster I would still have all the info. What would be the best way for me to do this? I have another machine running that has raid capability but is not using it. It has 4 sata connections and 2 ide drive connections, currently only using the 2 ide connections and no raid. I have Partition Magic 8 and Paragon Hard Disk Manager 8 Pro.

I got my new hard drive home tonight and realized it's SATA and my current one (the one that actually boots and runs the machine) is parallel. I installed the sata and it seems to work- but is there any danger with these two drives co-existing in the same machine? Clearly the machine can accomodate them both, but is it a bad idea?

A:Solved: Can serial ATA drives and parallel ATA drives co-exist in the same CPU?

Virtually every PC today relies on the venerable ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment) interface to connect hard drives, CD drives, and other types of drives. Spurred by the relentless demands for faster drive performance and greater reliability, the ATA standard (also known as IDE), which has a rated connection speed of 3.3 MBps, has undergone many advances. The Ultra ATA (dubbed Ultra ATA/133) interface can pass 16 bits of parallel data between a drive and PC at speeds of up to 133 MBps.
Such parallel-signal schemes, however, are reaching the practical limits of current cable, drive, and controller electronics. To achieve even faster data transfer rates, drive manufacturers are turning to a serial scheme called Serial ATA (SATA). Though it may seem counterintuitive that a serial technology (which transfers data one bit at a time rather than transferring multiple data bits simultaneously, as a parallel scheme does) could outpace a parallel one, that's exactly what SATA does; it transfers data at a much faster rate and more efficiently. Now that SATA drives, add-in controller cards, and most importantly, PC chipsets are finally available, you'll want to understand the benefits of this technology.

SATA typically handles data transfers of up to 150 MBps and in the future can be scaled up to 300 MBps and beyond. Some manufacturers predict speeds as high as 600 MBps. SATA offers a speedier boot process and faster loading of programs and data. But perhaps the best part of the new technology is SATA's simpler cabling.

If you've ever looked inside a PC, you've seen the wide, gray, 40-pin ribbon cable that daisy-chains master/slave drives to the ATA controller port. Not only were those 40 wires laying close together a potential source of interference, but routing the bulky cable made the placement of drives difficult. Moreover, the traditional cables are notorious for disturbing air flow within PCs. SATA uses thin cables that route easily and don't block a PC's cooling system, thus preventing hot spots and improving overall system reliability.

Connecting SATA drives is easier, too. Each drive connects to the host PC via an individual cable; the host PC treats all drives as master devices, eliminating the jumper settings, which have frustrated users for years. This greatly eases installation and configuration. Finally, the cables can be longer. Current parallel ATA cables max out at 18 inches, while SATA cables can be as long as 39.4 inches (1 meter). That's good for high-end boxes that use full-tower cases.

You will also find adding or replacing drives easier with SATA. You won't have to power down your PC before connecting a new drive, because SATA allows for hot-pluggable connections, so you can add or remove SATA drives while your PC is running. The connectors are also keyed (that is, designed for one-way insertion), so you don't need to worry about accidentally reversing a connection.

SATA is software-compatible with ATA, so you don't need any special drivers or OS upgrades to support the new drives; the SATA controller does the conversion between the drive and host PC. Consequently, SATA drives can coexist on the same system with parallel ATA devices.

Yet because of the differences between SATA and parallel ATA, you can't simply drop a SATA drive into a parallel ATA system. Here's what it takes to implement Serial ATA on your PC.

To start, you'll need a new SATA drive such as the 120GB Seagate Barracuda ATA V ( The only difference you'll see in the SATA drive is the connector scheme (and the absence of drive jumpers).

The host PC requires a SATA controller with one or more SATA ports, such as the Promise Technology SATA150 TX2plus, which combines two independent SATA ports and one Ultra ATA port and supports up to two serial and two Ultra ATA drives ( In new SATA-compatible machines, the motherboard uses a control...

I was cleaning a PC that was infected with a tough rootkit and eventually rebuilt w/ OS to ensure all was well. During the attempted cleaning, I had a external hard drive and a flash drive connected to the PC. My question is ... can rootkits and their similar counterparts spread to attached drives such as these [and eventually infect the next PC they are attached to]?

I have since used the flash drive in a new Dell PC w/ Win7 and it is acting a bit strange all of a sudden after sitting overnight.

Thanks much!

A:Are Rootkits able to jump to external drives or removable drives?

Yes,that is quite easy,especially with .exe files.You ned to clean the drive and scan what ever iy connected to.Were they both Win7?EDIT:You can download and use Autorun Eater or Autorun USB Virus Finder which will allow removal of any suspicious 'autorun.inf' files they find. Panda USB Vaccine. Computer Vaccination will prevent any AutoRun file from running, regardless of whether the removable device is infected or not. USB Vaccination disables the autorun file so it cannot be read, modified or replaced and creates an AUTORUN_.INF as protection against malicious code. The Panda Resarch Blog advises that once USB drives have been vaccinated, they cannot be reversed except with a format. If you do this, be sure to back up your data files first or they will be lost during the formatting process.Another option for XP users is Flash_Disinfector by sUBs. Please read About Flash Disinfector by Papakid and USB/Flash Drive Safety by TheJoker.Finally, always scan USB flash drives and any external storage media after they have been used in other computer systems, even your own. An easy way to do this is to download "ClamWin Portable Antivirus", put it on your USB Flash Drive, update its definition files and perform a scan.{borrowed from our quietman7}

From Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start:

Boot into BIOS setup to see if you can find any listing showing the HD is still alive. If so then run the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan, following by a Disk Check from the installation DVD or Repair CD's Command Line.

If no sign of HD listed anywhere in BIOS - usually by a serial number you can google to find its make/model - then try reseating it or changing its cable to get it to register.

If HD cannot be made to register in BIOS, then replace it to do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

very bizarre :
- 3 of my 6 drives SATA connected to internal SATA connectors on board ( Z87 Deluxe)
- are shown in explorer "my computer" as hard disks ( while correctly DVD and USB are in removable drives list)
- however these 3 drives appear in the list of removable drives Under the W7 utility "safely remove" !

That could lead to confusion when removing removable drives !

Any explanation ? Can I correct this ?

I think that it is possible that these drives have been formatted and partitioned whiel on a SATA-to USB dock ( when PC was Under repair). Have tried to delete all partitions on one of those drives, and recreate partitions Under W7 with Acronis Disk Director, but no change.
Or should I remove them from Computer Management ?

TIA for help please !


A:SATA drives : internal appear as External drives !

It is not bizarre but a result of drives being connected to ports that allow hot swapping (set to AHCI)

One possibility is to install the Intel AHCI drivers instead of the stock drivers that are part of the Windows 7 DVD.

Another is this:

FIX: AHCI/SATA drives showing in "Safely Remove Hardware"

This works for the Intel controller.

If you are connected to another controller, go to the Device manager and right click on that controller and select properties.

Then under the Policies tab, you should be able to uncheck the box that allows safe removal.

I have a HDD with win 2k on it I would like this to be the master with two slaves. One of the other drives is also NTFS and the other is win98 se these are to be the slave drives. When i jumper them all and plug them all in it doesnt read any of them and tries to boot from the floppy. If i only plug in the master with win 2k it loads fine. Any ideas why this is happening?

A:setting up master drives and slave drives

You can only attach two drives to each IDE cable. So on one cable you would have your boot drive with the operating system set as master with the other drive on the same cable set as slave. Check the jumpers on the back of the drives. On the other IDE cable the hard drive master/slave setting would depend on what else is on that cable. Do you have anything else hooked up like a CD or DVD drive?

A:Can boot from other drives cause corrupted drives?

The short answer is NO

But then again it all depends because there's so many variables that one could write a novel sized book listing all the possible causes for drive corruption.

Gather evidence, and start from the obvious and work your way down the list.

"Booting from another drive" being the cause would probably be cause number 545985 followed by #545986 "Booting from a CD".

If you're gonna throw that SSD away, can you throw it my way cos I'm sure it'll be working fine when I get it :-)

I have just recently changed my PSU. I now have conflict with the hard drives and the DVD ROM and CD RW. When i plug the main wire in (the wide wire which goes to the motherboard from the drives) it seems to freeze the computer. As i do this, there is a change in noise coming from the computer it seems to go quieter. I think that when i plug the drives in it takes most of the power away from the hard drives therefore they are unable to run. I am running a 400w PSU for a P3.

Am i right in saying this, if so what can i do to over come this? I have been advise that it might be the jumpers on the CD RW and DVD ROM but i haven't changes these plus i do no what/how these work. Could this be a/the problem?

Thank you

That would be the IDE cable and they have to be connected to PIN#1 of the drive to pin #1 of the cable there is a colored strip on one edge of the cable that connects to PIN#1 of the drive when connecting the drive the colored strip should be closest to you. Also please don't tell me your connecting cables with the PC powered up. IDE drive can also be daisy chained (two drives on each channel Master and slave)

I have a custom build desktop with 2 internal drives a 'Samsung SSD 840 Pro' and a 'Seagate Barracuda ST32000641AS'

I decided to format my PC using the Windows 7 boot disk, but noticed when choosing what drive to install my OS to, both of my drives types are labeled as System Drives, I decided to go ahead anyway and install my OS to my SSD, but after completing installation, Disk Management shows both of my drives as Active drives. I have searched a bit online and it seems that only my C drive should be an Active drive, does this have anything to do with both of my drives being read as System Drives at the start of installation. What would be the reason for both of my drives being Active? I have no problems with reformatting if needed.

Recently I formatted all the hard drives on my Gateway MX6214 Notebook computer.

When I attempt to install Windows XP it says the Setup cannot continue because no hard drives were found.

Obviously, the hard drives are in working condition because I also checked with some bootable diagnostic tools and the hard drives are check. But now it seems the "internal?" drivers on the hard drives have also been deleted during the format, so WINXP cannot recognize during installation. Same goes for installation of the OS Ubuntu =/

I do not have the original diagnostic cd that came with the notebook.

Are there any solutions anyone can point me towards?

Any suggestions? Oh, I also turned off any toolbars (adobe) in IE 6 prior to installation... Thank you.

A:IE 7 tabs

Strange indeed. The problem PC is running XP-SP2 I assume? I don't know if IE7 would even install if SP2 isn't present, but SP2 is mandatory for it run properly. Forgive me if that is already blindingly obvious to you, I'm just trying to help!

I don't suppose the online installation is a factor, but installing it offline is worth a try. When you are offered the download, choose 'save' instead of 'run'. When you have the file on your Desktop for offline install (around 15Mb) initiate the installation but choose NOT to download the latest updates for it. Just install the download 'as is'.

Needless to say, you should first remove the faulty IE7 ('Add/Remove Programs' with 'Show Updates' checked) which will then revert back to IE6, before trying to re-install as above.

Hi all,

I have recently installed IE7. When I try to open a new tab, by clicking on the small 'new tab' on the right hand side of all the other tabs, IE7 crashes. The new tab displays "Connecting..." and crashes the whole window.

The strange thing is I have IE7 set up so that when I double-click on the IE7 icon, four tabs open with four different home pages. This works fine. All the pages load up and I can flick between them with ease. IE7 only crashes when I am in IE7 and try to open a new tab.

And it does not matter how many tabs I have open at the time. I've tried this already.

Any ideas?

Hi, the website that I use if you (single left) click on a link in a forum post, the page opens in the CURRENT TAB instead of a NEW TAB.
I'm a Firefox user is there anything I can download so when I click a link it opens in new tab
The mod from the site says its for security reasons, and that's why when you click a link it does not open in new tab.


I use Firefox...and my links open in a new tab.
In Tools/Options...scroll down to Tabs and assert your preference.
I think I see what you mean...the former current tab is moved to the open tabs displayed on the Firefox toolbar.  I just automatically click that tab if/when I want to return to it.
