My sister just bought one of these (Eposn P-2000 picture viewer and MP3 player).
I have an iPod and when I want to add songs I just connect to my computer and it launches iTunes.
My sister seems to think she can just add MP3's one at a time. She hasn't set up a music library. I told her when you have 100's of song files it makes sense to put them in a library like Windows Media PLayer or iTunes. I don't think the P-2000 supports iTunes. Does anybody know what it does work with, or is it it's own system, and you have to just add songs one at a time.

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.)
I'm back here after really long. Looking to build a new machine with a budget of approximately $2000. Here's what I've figured:
1. AMD FX 8350 Black Edition - $179.99
2. ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX - $219.99
3. MSI R9 290X Lightning - $399.99
4. EVGA Supernova 850G2 - $144.99
5. Crucial MX100 512GB - $209.99
6. G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) - $139.99
7. Fractal Design Define R5 (Window) - $119.99
8. Zowie FK1 - $59.99
9. Overlord Tempest X270OC - $449.99
TOTAL - $1924.91
This currently excludes the keyboard, which I need suggestions for. Any thoughts on how these look? I'm open to ideas.
My suggestions: Save some money by making a few changes. You will still get excellent performance and still be able to overclock (if that is what you want to do), while saving money for some other parts.
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 - $174.99
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X 16GB - $119.99
Storage (Hard Drives): Crucial MX100 256GB (SSD) - $109.99 (for Operating System and a few programs/games you run often) *And Also* Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB - $54.99 (for Storage and programs that do not require the SSD speed)
Power Supply: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold (Full Modular) - $124.99 (You will still have plenty of power left for overclocking)
Aftermarket Cooler for CPU: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - $34.99 (The stock cpu fan is not that good, get an aftermarket one for better cooling)
This will put you around $1830 which will leave you plenty to for a keyboard of your choice.
Have you thought of going Intel? Going to Intel would help with "Future Proofing" your PC.
So I removed and cleaned my print head, waited until it was completely dry, then reinstalled it. I let the printer do its thing and when it was done I ran a head cleaning and a nozzle check. The test page came out perfect. The printer then asked if I was done with my head cleaning and I pressed the confirm button and the printer shut off. It will not turn back on either. I tried messing with both the plug in the power strip and the end in the machine. I know the power strip works because my computer is on it and fine. When I press and hold the power button I can hear very faint beeps or.... they could be ticks- I cannot tell as they are really quiet. It reminds me of when the car's alternator is dead but the starter is trying as hard as it can.
Any ideas on why it would work just fine for 10 minutes and then crap out?
Do you have a Multimetre that you could test the cable with??
Just to ensure you are getting proper volts/amps (clean power). The only other recommendation I could make is try and unplug the printer.. Press and hold the power button for 15-30s, tap it a few more times for good measure, and then plug it back in and see what happens. Sometimes devices just need a good power drain.
This ink cartridge http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Product.do?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&sku=T048120
Is labelled as "T048120-S" on some online stores... others it's labeled just as "T048120"
What does the "-S" mean? single cartidge?
Probably means standard capacity.
Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:
Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being £50 and 8GB is £80.
Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.
:big grin: My wife JUST purchase a waterproofed iPad Shuffle from waterfi.com
website is very descriptive and the device is AS Advertised - - she's very happy with it

How much does this cost, what is your budget and what do you plan on using the PC for?
We have a Windows 7 machine with a SUNIX LPT Port that appears to be working properly. A previous printer (same model) was fried when hit by lightning, but the computer is working normally. We have a new printer and new cable, but windows 7 does not see the printer attached. I have un-installed all Epson APD drivers and re-installed, but get an error
Unable to create printer port for EPSON TM-U220 Receipt. Error Code = 1608. Unknown property.
Could the parallel port have gotten fried also? If so, is there a way to test it? Any other ideas?
Thanks in advance.
Other sites recommend running SFC /SCANNOW
Hey guys, I've recently ordered a new PC and it should be here in a week. I'm a gamer and I like to write music and will finally be able to record with my new system. I'm just lacking a sound card. So basically I'm looking for a card that will be awesome for gaming and music. Any suggestions out there? I know I will need a PCI-E card. I'm looking to spend $150-200. Any help would be much appreciated
This is probably the best one out there: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829132010
That is the best of both worlds. There is a better card for gaming, but the Essence above is much better for creating music and phenomenal for gaming.

Replace the LCD panel including the backlight. External monitor okay, motherboard is okay... Slight chance of a damaged LCD cable to motherboard
Having dredged the internet, I came across this forum amongst the many with questions relating to cd drives working but dvd not etc, but my issue is slightly different, i think.
CDs seem to play ok, and so do DVDs, but I seem to have a problem with my laptop reading a disc with DS games on it that it used to read no problem. The discs can be used in my other half's laptop, so it is clearly a problem with my laptop.
I'd appreciate if anyone could advise where I can start to solve this problem
You need to have the CD/DVD drive replaced. Internal lasers fail in strange ways. The drives are not too expensive and they are easy to replace
As a part time DJ i spend a lot of time playing the same laptop a Recording music from music in the same order so i was thinking what if i Recording music from a laptop could just sit down and record the tracks that i play Recording music from a laptop directly into one Recording music from a laptop big MP and then it would save me having to load and cue each track I use a program called ClubDJ Pro its a twin deck system with a predefined playlist i can usually just load a playlist and tell it to cross fade during the last quot X quot seconds of the song X being a set time between and seconds However i find some songs have an extended silence at the end that can when i first played them mess up the auto cross fade facility and as anyone will tell you silence is deadly when your doing DJ ing So is there a program i can use to either record directly from my program or use another PC or laptop to record onto i assume i would use the earphone out on one to the Line In socket on the other PC Laptop and then record onto that It would be good as it then means i can use different mixes of my own nbsp

Looking for the best headphones for gaming and music... Noise canceling preferred so I can use them in a work environment also. Planning on spending no more than $100. Don't need a mic I can just use a separate one.
What do you guys think?
I'm considering using a few more dollars to get the Audio-Technica ATH-A700's, hmm what do you guys think.
DMA is enabled...
The sound is synced to the voices, but the music seems to be playing slowly. Like in slow motion.
Have tried playing with several different audio players... VLC (VLC default codecs) and k-lite codecs as well...
I upgraded the NT server domain controller to a Windows server and immediately noticed that the XP client machines took a VERY long time to logon to the server The server is running DHCP but I modify the DNS setting so that the XP clients have the IP address of the server DC as their DNS This corrected the problem with the logon speed but it created another little problem When the server DC which is designated as the DNS server goes offline all the XP clients are unable to access the Internet Once the DC is online again connectivity to the Internet is restored I do not know what options I have to designate the ISP DNS information so that the clients do not have to rely on the availability of the DC for Internet Any suggestions are greatly appreciated PS we are issue 2000 Server DNS small automobile dealership that does not have a large IT budget I try to do the best I can but it explains some of the 2000 Server DNS issue older technology i am using Greg nbsp
First, your config to point the clients to the server DNS is the correct choice.
The symptoms resulting from an outage of that server are normal - -
and should lead you to the solution that the DNS & DHCP servers need to be
replicated (ie two of each).
However, you can configure the clients with two DNS addresses:
the first one (being the primary) should be your internal DNS address
and the secondary might be any public DNS server like 18.104.22.168 (which is google)
DNS processing is to issue a request to BOTH dns addresses and to accept
the results of the first one to reply.
That then creates the situation (a race condition) that if YOUR server gets bogged down, the secondary is more likely to reply first.
You should really attempt to avoid all outages of your DC and to schedule all maintenance to 'off-hour' periods to reduce the impact to the clients

I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with vista and every time i try to play a song from my external hdd i get an error message that says "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set associations control panel.

1. Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button, typing "default programs" and then clicking Default Programs in the pop up list.
2. Click on Associate a file type or protocol with a program.
This opens a list of extensions.
3. Choose the extension of the files that you wish to open then click on change program button.
4. Select the program you wish to associate the file with and click Ok.

1. I would check current firmware version for the DVD and look for a firmware update
> Use Nero Infotool to see current drive info incl. firmversion and look if updates available

I have recently reloaded win 2000 pro on a computer, come to set it up on the network and am having some issues, I have to admit that networking is not by strong point.
The server runs Win 2000 server, I have manually set the correct ip address and the pc is finding all of the computers on the network but when I come to access files on any other computer I get a box popping up asking me to enter network password. It has two boxes, one is "Connect as" and one for password. The guys in the office dont think there is a password as they don't remember ever being asked for one.
I feel it is a simple issue but my lack of knowledge is hindering me so I am hoping you more knowledgable guys can point me in the right direction.
1- what type of network (Domain or workgroup )?
2- what kind of OS in the other computer you want to access?

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.
You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.
Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=2010340343 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156
And the matching integrated graphics H55/ H57 boards in the Gigabyte brand; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...01314 1070549182 107173338&name=Intel H55/H57 Be sure to pick one with 4 memory sockets. (4 out or 5 do). I have this one; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128421
Please pay no attention to the bad reviews for this product, they were all written by imbeciles claiming, "high technical ability". I don't know squat about computers, and I had one of these systems up and running perfectly, with Windows 7 installed, in about 3 hours.
In fact, I'm hoping Newegg will offer "don't know squat" as a technical ability claim option. That way, I'll be able to check, "don't know squat", and report, "it works perfectly for me, 5 stars"!

I have an old Dell Inspiron 4000 which I 'inherited'. I want to load Windows 2000 onto it (from my old Win 2000 CD)
It is an Intel?Pentium III 750MHz with 32KB L1 cache and 256KB L2 cache with 100MHz external bus frequency and Intel SpeedStep.
Display = 14.1-inch XGA TFT color display
I have loaded it and it works fine....except it only takes up half the screen!!
It has a black border around Windows of about 2.5" all around. Ie, the display is like a box in the middle of the screen.
I obviously need some driver or other, but I'm not tech savvy enough to know which.
At present it is trying to operate off a standard VGA driver which was installed with Windows 2000.
Any help gratefully appreciated.

One day I was doing some light gaming on both my tower and laptop since both my computers meets the minimum requirements and while playing this game I heard some unusual sounds on both How come some background music of games sound different? my laptop and tower my laptop while playing the background music of the game seemed to be missing a couple or not few sound types in the game On my tower it sounded like it had an extra beat as if I could here that extra sound s with the background music playing I can t explain real good but to simplify this my laptop seemed to be lacking of some melody beats while my tower has it all and slightly deeper bass I turned my laptop speakers high yet no extra melody beat appeared I How come some background music of games sound different? did the same with the tower sounded the same as before but just louder I am sure I installed this game on both my computer successfully with no errors I reinstalled it again and same problem occurred I don t understand is the speakers more sensitive on the tower and giving it more variety of sounds or is the laptop speakers not so sensitive in outputting more variety of sounds Or both are wrong and it is just the matter of XP and VISTA or is it the software or drivers installed for the sounds Is something wrong with the speakers Do I need buy better ones Ones that s suppose to act normal nbsp
try updating your sound drivers first, then you might want to look into past problems others might have had with this games sound. Since this happened to both your computers at the same time it sounds like the problem is the game.
A simple test to see if your speakers are broke is just...play music on them. Does it sound fine? yes? then it's not your speakers
unfortunatly without knowing what game it is that you are talking about I can't really look into any problems others have had with it.

Thx for all the help,

I am running XP/Win7 on my AMD 64 Athlon 3400+ powered Pavillion. I have an integrated Realtek AC'97 audio card and lately I've noticed that all music playback is choppy - whether it's iTunes, Windows Media Player, or Youtube. I've tried different speakers, headphones, etc., but reagrdless of the hardware I use, I still get the same problem. It sounds as if the music is being paused and then played very quickly throughout the song. I don't really notice it in Windows sound effects, but that may be because they are short in length. I notice this happening on both XP and Windows 7 and don't know why.
Try updating your audio and chipset driver. There could also be a program running in the background taking up to much memory or CPU cycles. If you listen to music alot you should get a dedicated sound card. You can get a really good Audigy on Ebay for under $15. Onboard audio is notoriously troublesome. Too many other things in the system can interfere with it.

Hello everyone; I was told to move the DHCP server from one site to another. I'm currently running DHCP in win2003 server. I have exported the dhcp config using netsh command. I just found out that the "new server" for dhcp in the other site is a win 2000 family server. I'm not quiet sure how to import the config from win2003 to 2000 family; is this possible? or I would have to configure the scopes manually?
Can anyone please help.
Hey! My comp can play music but when I play DVDs or run .avis I only get background music and the vocal audio is so low it's almost muted. I can't figure it out. I have DivX installed and AC3Filter as well but I use WMP and Cyberlink PowerDVD, no vocals from either. Do I need codecs? How do I find out which I need?
I've been able to boost sound with the AC3Filter and get DVD vocals now through WMP but I still am not getting any vocals from my DVDs when played through my Cyberlink PowerDVD. Any suggestions? I'm sure I'm missing a codec or something but I can't figure out what. The website I used to go to to download audio codecs for WMP11 looks down for the count so I'm at a loss.
Bought my wife a Sylvinia SMPK4068, 4gig MP3 player. My son has a zune and an account. He was able to download to an OPEL RCA MP3 player with no problems from the zune site. However when we try to down load to the Sylvinia it states it's a bad file type or can't download subscription. This is a plug and play device with an disc included for conversion of AVI files. Any suggestions? Like all the options of this unit for the price just the problems with downloads from the zune site.
I thought that site was strictly for zune users, as I own one myself, i know you cant go hooking an ipod up to it either.
I'm new to Techspot. I wanted to get into a forum to try and solve an issue with my computer. The computer is a dell inspiron 1525, with vista, and receives the following message on startup, "internal hard disk drive not found."
The usual cause is that the hard drive has gone bad... But you may just need to re-order your BIOS?
Have your tried borrowing another drive just to see if it is detected?
That computer can be about 2 1/2 years old... long enough for a drive to go bad...
But if you have valuable data on it, you don't want to mess with it too much... just because it doesn't boot, or is not detected, doesn't mean you cannot access it later to retrieve the data... because usually you can.
It can be a lot of other problems as well, so tell us more about your system and what you were in the middle of?
For whatever reason nothing will buffer here at home (youtube, myspace, etc) after a few seconds. It'll start out working fine and then just stop buffering.
We have a wireless network here so we can share a printer. I've tried all the computers in the house (Vista, XP), multiple browsers (Firefox, Explorer, Chrome), disabling the firewall, and clearing browser data. Nothing has helped. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a printer (Epson Stylus CX4300).
and I don't have colored ink anymore,
but I have black ink.
I don't use colored ink..
I often use black only.
but I can't print even I have black ink,
I changed it to black and white mode,
but it doesn't print
it always says that "replace cartridge"
but I'm not printing colored,
and I only need to print black.
1. Can I print black and white even I don't have
2. What is the reason why I can't print black and white even I have black Ink?is it because colored ink is also needed in printing black and white?
3. What are the other ways of printing black and white without colored ink?
Printer: Epson Stylus CX4300
Thank you very much!

Have a wonderful weekend.
can someone help me out with this please.
I just purchased a MP3 from Sylvania model SMPK4066. I connected my player with USB to my computer. Using Windows Media Player 11 and the sync option I synchronized my player 100% complete. Now my player reads No Files but WMP shows all of my music was tranferred and I see Folders on my MP3 screen with artists names but no music is playing and it still says No FIles. I need someone to help me get this thing to play my music. Thank you very much to whomever figures this out.
let;s try this for simple starters
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32
Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, then Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy Paste into next post
My cablebox has dozens of music stations. I would like to make music CDs to play in the car. I can copy to a VHS tape with my VCRs, or to a DVD through my computer. What do I need to do now?"
I think you could buy a TV card for your computer and "capture" the cable music that way
Endeavours to play a music CD on my desktop computer now prompt the following error message to appear. - "Canno convert CD Rom drive letter to ASPI information.. Digital reading is impossible."
Assistance in resolving this problem would be much appreciated...
So what is your systems make and model? What operating system are you running?
The title might sound a little weird but here's my problem. Yesterday i was chatting with my friends with a crappy headset then it broke.I just got a new one but this one is weird whenever i'm playing a music or something my friends can hear it too. I try checking it by using the sound recorded. It seems like they picked up the music in the background too. Is there anyway to stop it so i can use my mic alone?
Click start/control panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Advanced and make sure the mic is muted on the playback side.
I m trying to put together a powerful computer that will last a very long time I d like an Intel quad-core processor at least GB of DDR RAM multiple USB slots FireWire wireless capabilities a fast DVD drive burner a good sound card and a fast HDD preferably GB or over I need a good graphics card or two graphics cards depending on the other hardware that can handle Counter-Strike Source Half-Life and other more demanding games Also a case to hold everything together enough power cooling etc I ll be using the computer for gaming video editing graphics design and generally very demanding operations all at Building PC with $2000 Budget the same time It would also be nice if the computer is easy to upgrade as new technologies come out I have about available to me not including the OS monitor keyboard and mouse which I ll take care of later Building PC with $2000 Budget I ve been doing some research but it s more complicated than I thought I d be grateful if anyone could recommend a build or any sort of advice nbsp
with a core i7 setup you should be good for a while, Which will leave you happy with under a 2k budget.
You'll soon get post here about core 2 duos that can overclock to 4ghz. Those are all fine and dandy, they do their jobs well. On a 700-900 budget.
I'd recommend an core i7 setup, with a 3 or 6 gig ram kit. I think the asus and Gigabyte boards are great.
You may see a price drop after jan 8th when nvidia drops their new cards. I'd usually say a 4870 1gb version or a 4870x2 with your budget.
Have Epson stylus photo 820. Is there a reliable method to clean tops of INK PORTS that go into print carts?
Most holes around tops of ports are completely coated so not even visible. Don't know the print head itself is clogged. Tops of ports appear to have a series of tiny holes around the top, like a gas cook stove burner.
Any suggestions on how to get the dried ink off tops of ports?
Read about cleaning kit for PRINT HEAD, but would they work unclogging the port holes? If so, how?
Would appreciate recommendations on specific kits, or other methods others have used.
use isopropyl alcohol - as close to 100% as possible. Qtips also come in handy.
Does 8.1 and up work on w2k?
Just wondering. I have SP4 install and that update roller thing.
I'm certain 8.1 works on 2k and I think even 9.0c does.
I pictures corrupt Music and will try to explain as well as I Music and pictures corrupt can My friend has been having some slight computer problems lately so I went over to take a look The first problem that the screen would get a lot of jibberish on it Pixels or what ever I tried Music and pictures corrupt a new cable and uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and Music and pictures corrupt no go I installed a new driver and the same Finally I tried a new video card and it worked great That is just the first of the problem I then noticed that one of his hdd on his raid had gone bad so I took it out and got it replaced In the meantime when I restarted his computer it did a disc check and did some things I had never seen before but it completed the check on the good disc All seemed to be working well until a few days ago he said that his music was doing crazy things so I went over to take another look I played a song and it would start in the middle of the song and play a whole nother song I would play Queen and Celine would come on but it would start in the middle of one of her songs Not all the songs are like that though We never did count but I would venture to say at least half are still good I then just out of curiosity went to his pictures and they also had problems A couple of them would show up and the others would not They still showed they had mb or mb in each folder for the pictures but nothing would show up He mentioned something about some power surges but he is proteced with a battery backup ups from APC What does it sound like to you nbsp
Sounds like a failing hard drive...
I have an Epson Stylus DX4000, had for a while and use to work (with Windows XP)... then only connected once in a while and now not connecting to the computer so can not print/scan (although photocopying working, printer seems normal no flashing lights... no errors reported only 'epson scan can not print when try to start scanning).
- Seems when plug (via USB) to computer not recognized (does not appear in Device managers, usb controllers... and checked cable... tried dif usb plugs... other items such as ipod work so not computer).
- Tried reinstalling, turning on and off... looked to reset... obviously unable to print test page.
- From research think maybe the IEEE 1394 support has a problem recognizing but trouble shoot does not help... and so do not know what to do.
As you can see tried lots of things with no success, please help. Thanks.

win2000 has kill-bit controls and this KB loads several of them
if you can use the command prompt, then the installer would/should run.
Download the update to another system and then access it remotely on a share
or use a thumbdrive to move it to your win2000.
Whenever I have inserted a cd in a drive and selected explore, I have been able to see the file type. I bought a cd, karaoke style -- for all practical purposes here -- and when I inserted the CD I only found pdf files which hold the sheet music. I always make a copy of these cds in case one becomes damaged. On two computers I was completely surprised that I could see nothing except the PDF files. Is there a way to see the music files?
Purhaps you did not buy a CD with music on it. It may be a karaoke cd that gives you sheet music to some popular songs to let them play and sing it yourself (thus the karaoke).
I cant think of anything else because if thats ALL thats on the disk then the obove situation is accurate in my opinion
I recently bought an Epson CX9400FAX printer to replace an older one. In the past I have saved a bundle of money by refilling my Epson cartridges. Now I've been told that you can't refill the cartridges for this model as there is some sort of code that kicks in when the cartridge is empty and if refilled still talls the printer it is empty. I've discussed this with refill stores and some say they are working to find a way to overcome this code but I rather doubt they are really trying. In any case, having to buy new cartrides all the time is very expensive. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I used to get all my Epson ink from TylerMartin. Their website looks like it was made in 1997, but their service has always been great. I didn't see yours listed but you might want to see if anything they do have is compatible and they just haven't updated for the 9400 yet. If you don't see anything I'd suggest emailing them to see if they are planning on getting any in.
Does anyone know if it is possible to print from Epson R360 networked printer without having the PC on that the printer is directly connected to?
I was hoping to find a network cable port so that I could connect the printer directly to the router, however it only has a USB port. Can anyone help? Thanks.
You need to purchase a networked (ethernet specifically) printer
Any other hardware adaptors, or locating a card for you printer is not worth it
Since I started using Refillable Cartridges , and the Bulk ink
Every time I Print something I get the Epson Warning below.
Before changing to Refillable Cartridges, I used Generic Cartridges...
and I only ever got the Warning when I First replaced the Cartridge,
Now I get it every time I want to Print something,
I cannot Line up 2 or 3 Print Jobs , without being there to Cancel the Warning .it comes up every time. I can no longer just Click Print and leave.
The New Refillable have Auto Reset chips (reset when nearly empty ) in them ...
I would be quite happy if the Popup Warning only came when the Chip Reset.
I have an Epson Stylus Photo R310
Does anybody know of a way to stop this Warning , ...
Thankyou Ron .
As the error message mention it detect as a non original cartridges and printers nowadays are very secure about that and when you put and non original one it will send message everytime for the printer protection first as a non original cartridges can damage the printer.
I think you will need to buy a new cartridges and that time an original one or you will get the message everytime.
Can't figure out what is going on with my MySpace profile. About a week ago, all of the music vids I have on my profile stopped playing. The only exception is one YouTube video which still works. I re-installed a newer version of Active X thinking this might solve the problem. Still does not work.
Interesting though, when I view my profile on a computer other than my own, all of my videos play on my profile.
What do you think the problem may be? Has anyone had the same problem?

I have encountered a problem when I have tried to burn music to cd r. The drive will play music ok- so no problem there. However when I try to burn some tracks it will only record about 10 seconds. I will then get an error message saying that my cd is dirty or may be recording at wrong speed. Have tried other speeds without any success also tried downloading latest version of window media and closed all other applications that may have caused even a remote problem. Can anyone help or have any suggestions how to fix this problem?
Is this a laptop or a desktop computer.
It seems as if your CD drive is worn out of alignment. Either the read laser or the write laser is out of whack or it is just worn out. How old is the drive?
Burners last about a year, on average... less, if used a lot. It is easier and cheaper to replace them, than to fix them.
If you are in a dusty climate, you can remove the bottom from the burner, and use Dust Off or other canned air with difluoroethane gas to clean the unit. Do not touch the laser... just blow dust out of the drive.
There are some utilities that will reset the burner on some models. Do a Gurgle search for your brand and model.
My music played with constant tones with XP. Tone depended on sampling rate of the music. Is this a well-known problem?
Along with other problems I went back to 2000.
Please don't nag me about getting a new computer.
What kind of sound card or sound device does your old system have? Did you install XP, SP2 and install all the updates for it? There is an XP SP3 now. These Service Packs help greatly with older computers hardware, like sound cards and their drivers
(if this is in the wrong section, my bad)
for mlb 08 the show, you can choose to add your own music from the MS Pro Duo Card. I have songs that can be played in the mp3 player in the PSP, but when i want to load up songs to the game, it won't recognize the files and say i don't have any songs on the card.
I bought a new CX7400 Epson printer and cannot successfully install it. After the disc programs, driver installation and software installation complete, a Found New Equipment window emerges. The wizard tries to help with the hardware installation only to tell me it can't find the software for this printer. I tried everything including a manual install but I have reached the point where I keep going around in a circle. It does not say anything about an old driver only that the software is not installed. Anyone have a fix, Zeroscape?
use the wizard, when the found new hardware wizard pops up, you should select "have disk" then select the location for the driver, from the disk. Or.....
Here is the correct driver in case yours is out of date
(depends on operating system)
You can download the driver to your desktop. Select "add hardware" through the control panel. Select Printer -> Epson -> select your model if there
When asked where the driver is for this software select have disk, and then navigate to the location that you downloaded the driver to.
I can't remember the last time I was able to playback audio cd's (store bought) but I am sure I was able to at one time. I'll insert a cd into the drive at the autoplay box does popup saying it is an audio cd, so the drive WILL recognize the disc. However upon attempting to playback or rip, the drive will endlessly try to read the disc, freezing whichever program I'm using to playback/rip. The hard disc action light is also at full blast while this is happening. I have tried several cds and programs to no avail.
The Drive itself requires replacing
You can also purchase cleaning discs to clean the laser, but the money is usually best spent on a new DVD R/W drive
my music folder use to arrange my mp3 files in order from oldest to newly added. i must have clicked something because it doesnt anymore. can you tell me how to make it so it will arrange them from when they were added, like it once did?

Can anyone please help me? i got a new pc running windows 2000 professional. now my altek lansing speakers wont work on it and i love these speakers. pc asks me for cmuda.sys which is like greek to me. contacted microsoft and the speaker co. and they say i need a patch. is cmuda.sys a patch? if it is how do i get it? any help greatly appreciated. tyvm Bluemarinemamal
looks like a driver issue,
cmuda.sys is the C-Media WDM Audio Interface, for the C-Media AC97 on-board sound cards.
have you lately checked or downloaded your latest sound driver? compatible
for your OS ?
and what is your motherboard model? do you use any other PCI sound card?

You might have Temporary "files waiting to be written to the disk" in explorer.
put an empty disk in the drive open my computer and double click on the CD/DVD-RW drive, if any files appear in explorer greyed out then delete them by clicking "Delete these temporary files".
if you have any open windows that are showing the contents of the drive then you should close them too. other than that then there's probably another program monitoring the drive, could be a media player that you set to monitor your Drive for playable media.
Hello all, I recently bought another motherboard online and am still waiting for it to arrive. Ive seen that after installing a new motherboard, windows does not start and a reinstall needs to be done, so this is my question. How can i configure Windows 2000 to work properly with this new motherboard without having to reinstall. Can it be done?
ok, i might just back up and reinstall then. and another question. Will a microATX motherboard fit into a normal size ATX case? I think it wud, but i still wanna be sure
OK so reinstalled Windows XP Pro on a pc and it works fine. Cust has a video card trying to install drivers for it and it always freezes it is now frozen in safe mode extraction nv4_disp.cat... In normal mode it freezes on "extracting nvcpl.cp_..." Not sure what is going on here. Cust does not have cds.

I'm installing drivers for other things now... I wonder why i didn't think of this but THANKS
ok I'm downloading chipset drivers right now
hi.. i'm a music producer... and my main tool is Reason 4 software from PropellerHeads... and i want to buy a new PC... and my dilema is the CPU..
which one do you think i should buy.. the new 45nm E8400 or the old Q6600??
the problem with Reason is that it's not biult for multi core CPUs so i guess the E8400 should do the job better... but recently i saw some tests with Reason running on a Q6600 and i was amazed...
really dunno what to do here. and my mainboard of choice is the Gigabyte G33-DS3R... hope someone could help me on this one!
thanks in advanced!!
To Err Is Human....To Forgive Is Not in the Nature of Computers...
Either the 8400 or the 6600 should give more than adequate performance with music files. (By "more than adequate", I mean spectacular). I don't want to overstep my knowledge here, but I'm guessing that music files don't present the same degree of difficulty as 1920 X 1200 High Def Video encoding. Which I'm sure software engineers are currently rushing to adapt applications for quad (or more), core use. Point being you couldn't go wrong with either CPU.
BIOS updating can be a tricky and risky affair. That being said, I would check which BIOS version is present in the Motherboard before making a decision on which CPU to buy. The E8400 would absolutely require a BIOS update, whereas the Q6600 might not. IMHO, the plug and play part always wins.
Then there's always plan "C": wait for a 45nm quad CPU.
I found this to be quite interesting, I have Nero 6 which is not at least 3 years old. When I use the"advanced analysis" function in "Recode" (essentially "DVDshrink") on my machine with a Pentium Dual Core E2200, task manager is telling me that BOTH cores are operating at 100%. I didn't think that this version of Nero was even written for dual core CPUs, but there you have it, clipping along at up to 1000 FPS, firing on both barrels!
Pretty soon I plan on building a computer for my brother with around $1500 - 2000 for his budget and I want to get some good parts for it. The price will have to be with a monitor so im figuring its going to be about $2000 with a monitor $1500 without. I wanna try SLI, probably go with Intel quad core(Q6600), 4gb ram, and air cooling. I have been looking into the EVGA 780i motherboard because I heard some pretty good things about it. Here is a list that I am considering. Please feel free to suggest, add, or remove anything from my list. I thank you in advance for any help that you provide.

oldish computer, oldish user. my kids got me an ipod, which I am only learning how to use. I do love it now, but I am visiting relatives with 5 yr old computer running windows 2000. each time I try to hook my ipod to itunes, the whole thing reboots. It doesn't happen when I plug the cable into the usb port, but when I plugit into the ipod, it instantly shuts down. I don't know much tech stuff, be gentle! ^_^
The Windows 2000 computer is updated to SP 3 (Service Pack 3)?
I have a Panasonic Toughbook running Windows 2000.
I used to be able to run wireless PCMCIA adapters and it worked.
Now when I insert both a Netgear and D-link PCMCIA card the entire system freezes.(after installing the drivers) I pull the card out and the system resumes.Also, the lights on the PCMCIA flash and do what they are suppposed to do.
I can use my D-link wired PCMCIA adapter.
So - it is not the PCMCIA slot - it is not the cards - they both work on other computers. It must be 2000.
Anyone have nay thoughts on what i can try next?
you may need to do a fresh install of Win2K... Have you downloaded and installed all the Windows 2000 service packs?

ok well i do almost insist on SLI just because their cards look cool no jk i plan on playing crysis and some other stuff i do look to game! Plus video editing. and i think i did say UNDER $2000 somewere.... yeah i got crap about the server crashing but the weried thing is that the promocode page was still working. 500 watts is cutting it pretty close and im not getting this immediatly but there is a combo deal for the GPU and a 700 mabye 600 (can't remeber) watt PSU.
anyway since i am probably SLI ing, i think i will go with the cheeper $150 motherboard, however there is still the question about it saying ddr 800 ram while i'll have ddr 1066...... i swear i read somewere that you can change it in the bios.
yeah the Q6700 seems like a real ripoff compared to the Q6600 but i think i should mabye get a zalaman fan for it and buy the no fan version as the fan is sorta crappy i heard.
Hi guys. I didn´t find a printers section on the forum so i hope someone could help me out here. See, i have this old stylus color II printer. It printed well since it was here about 8 years (man this thing is older, i guess 1995 but still rocks)...a few months ago i printed 2 book with it (thats its normal task, to print some books i often like) but i used refilled generic cartridges from a loooooong time ago since this cartridges are not manufactured any longer. So, it started printing blury at the end...and i kept that way. I've cleaned the head about 30 times and still prints missaligned dots and i cant get it to print clear as it was doing 200 pages before. I dont thing head is dead, i know its clogged but i cant manage to get it clean again. Any suggestions?
thanks in advance.
Try the print head realignment procedure?

Periodically playing music is skipping, crackles, garbled, etc. After "out of box" restore will work OK for awhile.....then starts garbling up again.............
Follow these four steps:
Do a clean boot. Clear temp and prefetch.
Create a restore point and then update the sound card drivers.
Also try to install KLite codecs from filehippo.com
Do Windows Updates.
Ok first off i really couldn t find the best forum to post this in so please move as requried Right brass tacks I m creating a fully cat e and probably coax too while i m at it embedded network in the house i m about to move into I ve just installed Vista Home Premium as a dual boot on my main pc and it links nicely to the xbox for the media center bits n bobs My intention is to put c d pc s in each of the kids rooms running Vista HP too They will also eventually have tv cards in so they can watch tv from their rooms I would like to put a NAS box on the network for central storage and create a library NAS...etc dvd Creating on a a library of all our dvd s on there so the kids can just use their media centre to select a dvd and watch it rather than finding the disc and playing it through their dvd drive How do i successfully copy a dvd film to the NAS so that it populates the media center list and can be watched by clicking its thumbnail Drag n drop TS files etc or is there specific software that will do it all for me If kids wanted to watch either the same film or different films at the same time from their own bedrooms would they experience stuttering due to the load Indeed can the same film be watched simultaneously by pc s on the network Bearing in mind my first point about flooding cat e through the house i thought i d flood coax in as well for tv radio quality to each room Any other cabling to consider The answers you nice people give may raise more questions so be prepared nbsphttp://www.techspot.com/community/topics/creating-a-dvd-library-on-a-nas-etc.94868/
I have a desktop running windows 2000 connected to a wireless router with ethernet. I also have a laptop running windows xp connected to the router wirelessly. The each can access the internet perfectly fine...but how do I access the desktop from the laptop. How do I print from the laptop on the printer connected to the desktop. Please help....I have been looking for hours on how to do this and have found no solution.
you can do a remote desktop connection, provided that you enable it on both machines. you'll need the DNS names of both machines, btw.
Winamp's being... temperamental, to say the least.
I have a music library of ~2000 songs which I want to get it to sync to my MP3 player. It recognizes that my player is connected to my PC just fine, but when I tell it to sync all 2000 songs in one shot the program freezes and crashes.
I really do NOT want to have to sit at my PC for hours and sync my music library 50 songs at a time. Is there a workaround for this problem or am I just going to have to bite the bullet?
EDIT: Mods, please delete this thread, I reposted it in "Misc. Software". Thanks.

Best Gaming Laptop- $1000-$1300
Hey, recently my friend has been thinking about buying a new gaming laptop, and his budget is around 1000-1300 dollars. He isn't really expecting much at all from that price range, but if at all possible he would like to be able to play games like UT3, Gears of War, and Bioshock at High or maybe even max graphics. Any suggestions?
Just look for maximum memory (2-3GB), big hard drive (100GB +), fast processor (3GHz+) and good graphics capability, in the price range you posted. There are AlienWare laptops that are built for gaming but they are very pricey $$$
i have a slight problem on my hands. when i play oblivion, the in-game music skips a lot. all the other sounds like footsteps/swords/battles/environments play perfectly fine but the background music won't stop skipping. I use a creative x-fi soundblaster xtreme music card to which i recently updated the drivers to and a sennheiser hd555 headset as well. I can provide any extra info needed.
thanks in advance,
Do you take care of your oblivion disk? It may have a really bad scratch...

I have an Epson stylus photo 750 that has started printing photos with very fine horizontal lines. I have performed all the options in the utilites section but to no avail. The only thing I can think of doing next is trying some dedicated cleaning cartridges. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what can be the cause, and more importantly, how to fix it?
I'ts been a brilliant printer up to now, and ink is silly cheap, so I'd be very sad to have to bin it...
Have you tried installing new ink cartridges?
I've heard that most printers claim to be out of ink long before they actually are. I have a large collection of empty Epson CX6000 cartridges that have amassed quickly over the past year. I'm wondering if I can drain them more thoroughly and save some dough.
Has anyone had any success with resetting the expiration date on the cartridges or modifying the drivers?
I found the "SSC Service Utility" online but am nervous about loading a strange program onto my rig.
Also, Office Max claims that they can't refill these cartridges. What's up with that?
Although I don`t use Epson printers myself, the SSC Service Utility is as far as I`m aware a safe and very useful bit of software.
Give it a try and see what you think.
I want to set up a server to manage computers but I can t seem to find a tutorial that will tell me what I need to know with out bombarding me cannot server a win 2000 I tutorial/ find with information I really don t need to know So I was wondering if someone from this site would be able to make a tutorial or would know where to find a tutorial in plain english I will list I cannot find a tutorial/ win server 2000 out what the server needs to do and then maybe someone could reply with what I need to do or where I need to go to get the information The server needs To run Windows server Got the CD for it and I want to keep it cheep Manage computers Make user accounts so people can log into each of the computers Use a wireless router to connect to the computers although the server is connected to the router by a cable To be able to run dedicated game servers I cannot find a tutorial/ win server 2000 I don t know if this is possible but if the computers were able to use the Cd drives on the server as if they where there own it would be really usefully By the way the computers are x Win XP and x Win XP both are pro versions nbsp
For 2 and 3 you need to set up the server as a domain controller. Everything else is already included.
As for setting up something like this and managing it the future without taking the effort to learn how it works..
I can ping these two machines yet on my laptop, in my network places i cannot see my home pc or my laptop in the workgroup. On my home pc i can see my home pc in the workgroup. All firewalls are off that I know too.
Is there a setting on my laptop stopping it joining the workgroup. Because it is not in the workgroup, i guess that is why my home pc cannot detect it.
When i search for computers nothing is detected, yet when i search for "laptop" it finds it in my workgroup. Yet no symbol is showing.
I want the connection purely for file transfer.
Static IP address are ok, 192.168.0.1 for hom pc and 192.168.0.2 for laptop.
Workgroup is same on both machines.
Really Really Frustrated now!
Can anyone please try to help.
PS. My laptop was setup for a network at my office originally, but I don't see how that matters?
This has to be the most asked question,
First get identical accounts on the XP and 2k, such as user with a password of user.
Turn off simple file sharing on the XP machine, its Explorer \Tools \Folder Options \View drag the bar to the bottom and untick simple file sharing.
Ensure both machines are in the same workgroup, this is found in XP by right clicking my computer on the desktop and choosing properties then choose computer name then click change, by default XP Pro and 2K use "Workgroup" but XP Home uses MSHOME for some strange reason, to change the work group in 2K right click my computer choose properties, choose network Identification, properties.
Then share the folders you want access to by opening explorer and right click the folder and choose sharing, follow the tabs
reboot the PC's and that should do you.
I always check by doing this
start run "\\machinename\c$
this attempts to connect to the admin string of the PC, this share is always present and means you dont have to worry about sharing individual folders.
If this works congratulate yourself for being clever and have a large Rum and coke and a Cigar.
If not post back and someone cleverer than me will help..
I have used Mediaplayer 11 for about a year. Iopened last week and it stated that there were no items and I had to add my music to my library. I try to do this by specifying where the player should monitor but nothing happens. When I go back to that window my manually added folders have disappeared. I have rolled it back to media player 10 but it states that the file wmplayer11 is where wmplayer10 should be and asks if I want to download the newest mediaplayer. I have done this many times, done a system retore, run a virus check, even tried to remove it from the computer, and start over, but it will not let me do it. I am at a loss. I cannot get this to work whatever I do. Any help that I could get from anyone would be appreciated. Thanks.
I installed a creative sound blaster xtreme music in my computer, and shows error code 12, i tried already to disable some things but still not working.
this card has been sent from creative lab, with diferent ROM, because was a incompatibility with nvidia chipset on my motherboard a8n-se sli,
what should i do. i have 3 pci slots empty, audio onboard is off, is impossible that i dont have resources for this sound card.
any help is welcome!
Started having the exact same problem as of today. I plugged out my headphones from my X-Fi xtrememusic to connect speakers. Later as i connected my headphones again they didnt work. I restarted and since then been having the CODE 12 error. I have reinstalled the drivers about 3 times and tried different pci slots. this sucks really bad cause onboard sound is crap
I hope that this is in the right section It may not even be a computer problem since the problem is solved when the computer is relocated however I could sure use a suggestion on who might have an answer When I play any music whether stored on the HD play a commercial music CD or a home burned plays music stutter with a All CD at some point about seconds into the music it takes a second long stutter followed All music plays with a stutter by a very short slow-down much like dragging your finger on a vinyl record as it plays then the music plays normally for maybe minute or so The periods between the stuttering is random Now I All music plays with a stutter have computers in my office network This is happening on every PC in the offices To test the possibilities I burned a fresh CD and played it on every PC The stuttering took place as usual randomly each time it was played I took it out to my car and played it There was no stuttering I packed up my PC and took it home to my home office I set it up and played music again There was no stuttering Music from the HD commercial CD and my home-burns all played fine The only variable here is the electricity Each PC is plugged into a UPS unit so I suspect the lines are clean coming in I know electricity can be dirty but I ve talked to two expert electricians and they have both looked at me like I was nuts They think that this is not an electrical problem So here I am in that impossible spot with a problem that just defies all logic There must be an answer Can anyone suggest who might be capable of answering such a problem nbsp
I know this sounds odd but you dont have roadworks or any building work near you by any chance? I had a wierd problem like this when there was a lot of groundwork being done outside my house. As soon as the builders packed up and left it was fine.
I have had my normal Audigy2 card for years now, and it is starting to play up, like cutting out in games, and often when i'm facing someone who is talking to me I can't hear them and will have to turn to the side to hear them, things like that lol.
I was planning to upgrade the card anyway, but i'm not sure whether I should get the X-Fi Gamer or Music. I hear they are essentially the same thing, although the Gamer is the newer edition. More people swear by the Music though.
I would love some advice, as they are both available, and both basically the same price.
OK, thanks. I can't imagine using Vista anytime soon, and even if I did, a patch would probably be out by then to add support do you think? I am using XP Home at the moment.
