Preferred Solution: MMJB 10: No option to save library or new library

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: MMJB 10: No option to save library or new library

It might be that the file is hidden and windows cannot see it. Go to My Computer, then Tools > Folder Options > View > select shown hidden files and folders.

Also it could be that it's not using the DDF file anymore and using a different one. Maybe M4U or something similar.

This laptop will not save documents or files to the hard drive. They are there when initially saved, but disappear when the system is next switched on.

Anyone help me pls...
 

A:Laptop Fail to save any data to harddisk

You need to say whether you are new to computers or not and which Windows operating system you have. I remember when we first got a computer many years ago the wife thought that I'd deleted her work. In fact we didn't know whereabouts it was saved and couldn't find our way around. If you are a beginner using Windows 7 try clicking on the Start button and then Documents in the menu that opens to the right. By default that's where things are saved but you can use the Save As option and choose a different location.

Hi,

My internal HDD failed due to a sudden power outage. I can hear beeping sounds like the motor is trying to spin the drive up and failing to do so. This drive contains all my important data ( documents, photos and videos), I'm thinking of taking it to a data recovery center, How much would it cost me for a data recovery service? I've been recommended to WeRecoverData data recovery labs by an IT person, Anyone have experience with them? Any help advice? Thanks in advance.
 

A:HDD beeping. What's the best data recovery option?

Likely thousands. Hopefully in the future you will make backups of important data.

If it was killed by the power outage, you can probably fix it yourself by purchasing the exact same drive on ebay or wherever and swap the PCB.

My media sharing option constantly keeps turning off by itself even after I have reset it to share my media on all networked (4) computers and even while watching movies from another computer on my network, I have also enabled media sharing thru Windows media player and it still cuts itself off! can anyone help with this issue??
 

A:Networking: Media Sharing option turns off

Which version of Windows do you have? Make sure services for media share are enabled.
You might have to

press start key + r at the same time then type: services.msc

Computer Browser (started/manual)

DHCP Client (started/auto)
DNS Client (started/auto)

Function Discovery Resource Publication (started/auto)

start/auto/enable Homegroup Listener

Also check on your system for software that is disabling sharing just our right like cleaners all-in-one does it because in theory suppose to reduce over head.

Hi,

I have Intel DH77KC, Windows 7 64bit installed, Realtech HD audio, Everything was working fine .. I don't know what happened, last night I plugged my headphone and try to chat with my friend but, mic was not working, its weird, anyhow I noticed that in mixer every thing is good but rear microphone jack is grayed out, I think that is causing the issue.. I don't know why is so, I checked my headphone on my laptop and mic worked fine there, is something wrong with my pc hardware or what is going on please guys I need ur help.
 

A:Realtech HD Audio Rear Mic Option Grayed Out in Mixer

When did this happen? If you know roughly the time period, you can do a system restore to just before that period and that should fix it if it is software based. Also have a look in the Real tech audio 'control panel' and the Windows sound one in case something got disabled.

I recently downloaded the latest Skype for Android to my Motorola Droid M smartphone. When I make a Video Call on Skype there is no option for a Speaker option so I can only hear via the phone earpiece. I have tried using earbuds but the sound can not be heard. I couldn't find any help on the Skype site and others appear to have the same issue. Does anyone know how I can "fix" this myself or how you actually speak with Skype Support?

Gents, built my own machine last year and installed a 60GB SSD strictly for Win 7 only (have two other HD's installed for storage and programmes)

Lately im getting alerts to say my SSD is now full and after doing what I could through the tools on Win 7 I was only able to free up 5 GB's What the hell is on here? Win updates? Everything I do is directed to my HD on the E: drive

Alternative is to buy another - can you transfer the root HD to another HD? really didnt plan for this, I know 60GB isnt that large but it was only ever to use as a boot drive.

Suggestions anyone?

windows 7 is taking up a load of space on my ssd 60 gb and its close to full now even with all 3rd party software on a different drive, I was thinking of deleting language packs and possibly amd drivers which come stock, any tips or advice on how I would go about doing this. I have already uninstalled windows media center and internet explorer as I dont use them anyways
 

A:Save space on SSD

Honestly, I would say get a bigger drive. 60GB isn't really enough for windows and core programs. You can uninstall all you want. Eventually you will run into the same problem.

Well if you built a new system you'd need a new hard drive (or Linux CD) to boot from and you can get the data from your old hard drive that way.

Hello Everyone,
A few month's ago my old laptop gave up the ghost and so I asked the local computer geek to take out the hard drive and memory sticks. I thought that was how to save all my "stuff", and he tech did not say otherwise, so I hope I did the right thing?
Anyway, while I wait until I can afford to get a new laptop.......here is my question:...Can I go to a computer store and have all that data put on a CD? Then when I get my laptop I can just transfer the data?
Thank you.t
 

A:How do I save data from old laptop?

Yes. But it will be cheaper to do it yourself with one of these.

I have noticed that my computer (and many others) have an option called "PCI-LAN" or similar in the BIOS boot menu (when I press F8 I get the option to choose boot device, HDD, CD, USB and PCI-LAN).

I'm just curious, what is this for, and how could I use it?
 

A:LAN boot option in BIOS

Not sure about PCI-LAN, sounds like a NIC.
Are you referring to PXE booting?
That is where you set up an image on a server that people can boot from without having the OS actually on their hard drive.

I believe I am talking about quot fake quot raid here To the point I am building a file server using FreeNAS with a PC thats over a few years old I d say around - years RAID best PCIe, option? PCI and cards, wanting to set up a RAID function with this I ve learned after a bit of reading that there are such things as fake raid where the processor actually handle where the data goes and this is fine as these RAID cards, PCI and PCIe, best option? also seem to be much cheaper I m using a bit older mobo can post model later upon request that has SATA ports for RAID or I am considering getting a card to support up to HDDs Here are options I ve been looking at Syba PCI Express SATA II x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX Adaptec RAID SA - Storage controller RAID - Channel - SATA- low profile - MBps - RAID JBOD - PCI Express x SYBA SY-PCI PCI Low Profile SATA II Gb s Controller Card Adaptec -R SA PCI Express X -Port SATA GBS Low-profile Host RAID Controller Now I realize Amazon com doesnt give good descriptions Also is there a RAID function build into FreeNAS I cannot seem to get window shares to work with that so I still need to work that out using nbsp

A:RAID cards, PCI and PCIe, best option?

Here are options I've been looking at.

Syba PCI Express SATA II 4 x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX40008

Adaptec RAID 1430SA - Storage controller (RAID) - 4 Channel - SATA-300 low profile - 300 MBps - RAID 0, 1, 10, JBOD - PCI Express x4

SYBA SY-PCI40026 PCI Low Profile SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Adaptec 2240900-R 1430SA PCI Express X4 4-Port SATA 3GBS Low-profile Host RAID ControllerClick to expand...

Adaptec has been the leader for decades and using the CARD avoids the 'fake-raid' software implementation. One big advantage is the card completes the operation without the assistance of the CPU.

Once you opt for the raid-controller card, you (imo) really ought to go with
SCSI attached devices which give you hotplug support and dynamic raid recovery.[x]

Be carefull: Even Microsoft does not recommend attempting to boot from a Raid.
Raid is a server function to avoid a single point of failure, and even with Raid-1 or Raid-10, you still need a backup system.

[x]The NAS Raid-x is frequently SCSI internally for these reasons

A:I need to save my files with system restore

I would remove the hard drive, install it into an enclosure or a docking station and use another PC to read the hard drive and copy your files. BTW, you should always back up your important files to avoid predicaments like this but I guess you know that by now.

Once you recover your files you perform a clean install of Windows, reinstall all your applications and copy your files back to your original hard drive.

Five minutes is too short a time for monitor shut down in a desktop. Increase the monitor shut down time to 30 minutes. Also check the BIOS settings for "wake up" options. You might try setting the bios to its defaults

I've inherited an elderly PC running Windows 2000. It boots with the screen in very coarse resolution, but I can use display properties to reset it to 1024x768, 24 colour. In fact it doesn't even need altering, as it shows 1024x768 already and no adjustment is needed.However on shut down it loses the new resolution, and boots again next time using the old.

Any ideas, please? I can connect to the internet if it is a matter of downloading drivers.

Thanks
 

A:Screen resolution will not save

You need to download and install the driver for that graphics chipe.

You have told us nothing about the computer. We cannot help you much until you tell us brand and model of computer, or of graphics card until we have that info. It is also possible that the graphics card or chip has failed, and that card will need to be replaced.

Says you should have software for it, you will also need the USB cord to hook it up to your computer, unless it has Blue tooth you might be able to get it off that way, but I doubt it. Goodluck.

I have a pc with 2 disc drives. I can play a disc showing photos but if I insert a new CD and try to save a Word document it refuses to save it.
 

A:Can't save document onto disc in CD drive

What do you mean by "refuses to save it"? What error message(s) appear? Can't write to the CD? Can you burn any new data like songs, or new pictures to this CD burner?

Hi,

I can not get my Dell XPS 720 to work. When I start it up it beeps 3 then 2 times and the monitor LCD screen says Auto Detect (Digital Input) in power save mode, press any key to start, then goes blank. Neither the mouse or keyboard can get it out of power save mode. This just happened suddenly. It worked fine one day and then the next day it was in power save mode. I have spent alot of time surfing for an answer and trying to figure out how to fix it but am at a lost. Any help on this would be much appreciated!

Thanks, Lisa
 

A:Dell XPS 720 stuck in power save mode

That beep sequence usually represents something wrong with the RAM.
Have you done any memory upgrades lately? The RAM has become loose and not seated properly?
The only thing that honestly confuses me is the power save mode.

I bought a language CD set, and I do like it. The one thing I do not like is using the CDs every time I want to work with it. I have a Dell inspiron mini 10 with the external CD drive. The reason I bought the mini was for portability, but carrying the CD drive negates some of the advantages. How can I load the CDs on the hard drive and work from it, rather than the CD? I appreciate any help with this.
 

A:How do I save my language CDs on my hard drive and work from there?

This all depends on the software.
Not all programs let you copy the CD to your HD to make it work. If you tell us what software it is, it may help. What does the program access the CD for? Is there an option in the program, of where to look for certain files?

Well there is a notification box in realtek Sound Manager's Audio/I-O -> Analog -> [wrench icon] -> Connector Settings in which i need to place a tick in "Disable front panel jack detection" but unfortunately i am unable to see that option in my driver. There is only one option in there which says "enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in."

Does anyone know how to bring that option back?

Note: I have uninstalled the old driver and installed the latest driver just few weeks ago which apparently means every setting has been put back to default.

Here is a screencap

Hi all

I have been handed a usb memory stick which a student saved all their current projects with no back ups. When she pulled it out of her computer only the casing came away. When she put it back into the casing the computer would no longer read it.

I've manaed to have a look at the insides and there doesn't seem to be any loose conections and I'm evan getting a red light from the stick, but nothing is appearing on the computer. By squeezing the sides with my thumb and finger I can get a unrecognised usb device message.

Any help with recovering the files would be greatly apreciated.
Cheers
 

A:Need to save files on a busted USB stick

Normally, in cases of problems in reading usb drives i'd refer you to a Troubleshooting Guide (See this Guide Troubleshoot: Windows Won't Recognize Your USB Hard Drive HOWEVER, frankly, in your case (no pun intended) i'd be worried that removing / inserting / trying to physically manipulate the device might cause physical damage to the point where it's not possible to recover the data.

There are data recovery companies that specialize in recovering the data in situations like yours (and seems that pricing widely varies). I'd look online to find one and advise you try go that route.

1. Master (usually MA) for the hard drive, Slave (usually SL) for the cd. Don't use CS at best it does what MA and SL do, and at worse it causes things to behave strangely.

2. Its a BIOS issue in that you must set it to boot off the CD before looking to the hard drive.

3. Clearing CMOS woudln't be a bad idea, that sets the BIOS to factory defaults, but you could also do that after a CMOS clear just to be sure. I wouldn't flash it yet, check what the versions of the BIOS fixed what, if your problem isn't listed no reason to flash it.

4. I gather you are using an IDE CD drive as well as an IDE HD. So the driver settings in point #1 are crucial. Just making sure you are using IDE interface rather than SATA.

5. Download memtest86's bootable ISO ( http://www.memtest86.com/#download0 ) and run that if you can get it to boot off cd. Normally you'd want to run that several hours, but if the problems you are having are caused by RAM you'll likely get errors very quickly (seconds to minutes into it).

Hello guys, I'm in need of support before I turn bold before 21!! I've moved into a house with 4 others witha 20mb Vrigin connection. The network runs fine bar it has no PSK or protection. We keep gettin dirty rinsers nicking our internet. Im not a complete noob at this sort of thing, I attached a wep and a psk seperately but when this is applied no pc's can connect to the network and all hell breaks loose. Does anyone know how to get round this?? Does the security have to be enabled on the first pc to set up the connection?? Any help would save a healthy head of hair. Jp
 

A:Wireless Problems, save my hair please!

Each PC has to have the same type of encryption. You just can't have it on the main wireless router and expect to be enough. Take your time with this.
Make sure you take one PC and connect it to the wireless router using wired LAN patch cable connected directly to the router. When you setup encrypted passwords.

1. Wireless Router
setup admin password to login to the router

2. Setup Encryption
WEP-64-bit WEP-128-bit or PSK
Tip always go with the best one you have.
Create a HEX or ASCII password key

Once this is completed take that password key and add to each PC you have on the network. I recommend using XP Wireless connection service so you can setup your password easy when you press connect.

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.

A:better upgrade option?

I would look into the performance sum of each system. What percentage of performance is greater? If the performance difference in the vid cards is least, get the faster cpu/lesser vid card. If the performance difference is least noticeable between the cpus, get the faster vid card setup.

A:Disk 2 unstable, plz help save data!

If you stated that you tightened the connection, I would try swapping out the ribbon cable for that drive first. It sounds like the cable may be bad. These cables will go bad due to the heat in side the case. Does the cable seem hard and brittle?? If it does, I'd bank on a bad cable.

Howdy all you tech savvy super humans!

I am a new mac user and new jump driver.
Here's the prob:
I plug my drive in the usb and, though it says "0 items", it is full to capacity.
I was told to reformat it but I am really lame at computer stuff, especially being new to the mac world. As far as I know, I tried everything.
If anyone can save my life, and explain in not so genius terms, I'd be sooooooo appreciative!!!!!

Thanks uber mucho!

a few days ago my i do option? how reverse this friend was using my computer to test some how do i reverse this option? SATA device how do i reverse this option? i went in the other room to watch a movie with some other friends When i came back i found that my IDE drives were not there and my SATA drive wasent being shown in windows My windows partion is setup on my raptors in raid so those werent touched Now all my other drives that arent showing up in windows ARE showing up in how do i reverse this option? the bios and the boot screen So i asked my friend what he did and he said he disabled the drives in my bios cause he needed to do something he hasent had time to get to it to fix it I tried looking in the bios myself to see if i can figure it out but i cant I want to do this sorta myself but i havent figured it out thus far and i need some assistance although im sure its quite simple Can somebody help me to reenable these drives so they show up in windows cause they are there i see all of them in the bios and post thx Not Shown in Windows but are in bios IDE Primary GB Maxtor Diamondmax SATA GB Western Digital IDE Secondary Pioneer DVR- B Shown in windows x Plextor SA x GB Raptors Raid Windows Link to Manual http us dfi com tw Support Download manual download us jsp PRODUCT ID amp STATUS FLAG A amp SITE NA nbsp

A:how do i reverse this option?

again, another thread with someone mixing IDE and SATA drives. While it will work most of the time, when an error occurs XP will default to IDE and write OS data on the IDE drive, thereby jacking the system up. This can cause serious errors making data recovery difficult.

Solution. USE one type of drive or the other, but not both.

Anyone have luck booting an operating system from a HDD via the front bay on a C600/610 or similar? I had read something about this option while looking for info on this model. I also am a bit in the dark on the additional slot near the memory on the bottom, what can be installed here... It looks similar to the memory interface but also has two unhooked connectors toward the palmrest side. I assume this is miniPCI slot? I am new to laptops this year, in fact, having picked up a few used ones cheap, this is one off eBay in the last week.... I am yet to have it fully operational.
Thanks TIA,
BILL

UPDATE: Paragon33 tells me I must have some incomplete info, It is possible via another port but not the CD/Floppy front bay. I can't recall where I got that information. Anyway, sorry for any confusion passed along

Hi Bill

I own a C600, the slot next to the memory is for a MiniPCI card, although if you want to use a Wifi Nic you will need to buy a pigtail connector to link it to the inbuilt aerial, these cables are like rocking horse sh*t to find.

As for booting from the front slot, I would need to look into that, as I am looking for a way to have 2 HD's in the machine, i'll email Paragon later and see what he has to say.

lastly watch the power lead on the C600. if you let it hang down for to long the cable breaks about 2cm from the plug, I have gone through 3 PSU's already, mainly coz I sit on the couch and the cable hangs down, Dell fixed this on later models by including a small clip to support the cable, I now use a wire tie....

Hi:

I was wondering if its possible to make a partition on my hard disk so i can back up my windows xp data on it because i have no windows xp cd and i have an emachines t2682 with a recovery disk...and i really hate to wipe it every time it crashes. Is there a way to create a partition using some kind of partition wizard or something? I would appreciate it if it was free. That would be very helpful.

I'm not having a problem right now, but i would like to do that so i can repair the hard drive and perhaps save everything on my hard disk because i hate to lose my save games, etc.

An ASUS A8V-E SE motherboard, latest drivers installed. The chipset is VIA, K8T890 Northbridge and VT8237R Southbridge. The sound is Realtek ALC850 CODEC. Running Windows XP Home SP2 with all the latest updates.

If I set the hardware sound acceration to anything except "full", and click on "Apply", then "OK", the setting does not stay. It reverts to full acceration again. It stays while you have the Sound applet open, but if you close it and reopen it again, the acceration is set back to "full".

Unfortunately, I have an older game that I play a lot that has extremely garbled sound at full acceration levels.

I have tried everything I can think of to try to get the sound settings to "stick", but am out of ideas. Does anyone here have any ideas I could try?

Thanks,

A:Cannot save sound acceleration setting

Latest update: I removed and reinstalled the sound drivers. The drivers on the motherboard CD are the same release number as the latest drivers on the ASUS site for my motherboard, so according to ASUS there are no updates available.

The problem remains: every time I open the Control Panel Sound applet, the hardware acceleration is set to "Full".

I did a Google search and found a site that listed many Realtek sound drivers. Taking a chance, I grabbed the latest version -- A3.81 -- that sounded (no pun intended) like it should work with my chipset and installed it.

I do have sound with these new drivers, but my original problem was not fixed. I'm starting to wonder if it's not a driver problem.

Is there any point in posting a message to technical support?

A:Samsung 512 USB Flash Drive Wont Save unless I format.

That doesn't sound good, my guess is your drive is toast. Best to buy a new one, where did you get it at? Can you take it back? Has it ever worked properly?

Try to format it through disk management in XP, if its still no good, try it on a Windows98SE machine (you will likely need a driver for your drive to do this). Or try to format it as FAT32 from a linux machine.

I have 2 flash drives that I use between my home PC (98/SE)
& a machine at work (I believe XP).

For some time all was well, then all of a sudden first on 1 then later
on the other, I can no longer save anything to them with either
machine.

I just read a post about a similar problem and have found out about
"stopping" the device before unplugging it - I don't have that green
arrow at the bottom on either computer - would they be hidden
somehow and how to get them to show?

Anyway, now that I know that, is there any way I can fix the problem?

I can read and copy from them, so if I save all the files to my desktop,
can I then reformat them or something to regain the save functionality?

Thanks so much!
 

A:Can no longer save to flash drives

Yup, that worked.

I copied all the files (successfully) into
a folder on my hard drive, then deleted
everything.

Don't know if I needed to, but I ran
Scandisk on the empty drive.

Now I can save again! :approve:

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Please would you take a few moments to read this post. A message for all newcomers. Thanks.

What are you trying to change in bios? Does this problem occure no matter what you change?

Does your computer boot into Windows ok?

Have you considered flashing your bios to the latest version?

You can get the flashing software from your mobo manufacturers website. If you decide to do this. Make sure you follow the instructions exactly.

I am not getting well performance in gaming from my newly bought MSI Radeon 9800pro.(Low FPS in games like MOH-PA, BF2)
Many people says my Processor is limiting my 3dcard and i have to change it to get 100% better performance from my 3dcard. Is it true.

My system spec is.

Intel Celeron D 2.4Ghz
MSI Mobo with 4x AGP.
512 MB DDR 400 bus.

I have decided to upgarde my system. Plz help me for selecting me a right option or tell me what to do.


1. Buy Intel pentium 4 HT 3.0 GHz 1mb chache memory 800MHZ FSB with AGP 8x motherboard and keep my (newly bought 8 days ago)R9800pro.

2. Buy pentium 4 3.0Ghz 512 chache 533MHZ FSB and buy 6600gt and plug them into my current MSI 4x AGP mobo or buy 1 with AGP 8x Mobo.

PLZ help me for selecting me right option!

One more thing How much Ht technology supports the gaming?(Is HT tech. is good for gaming?)
 

A:Help Me For Selecting A Right Option For Me For System Upgrade.

I've heard it said that celerons are the equivalent of a pentium with 70% of the celerons clock speed, so a 2.4 celeron would be like a 1.68 pentium 4, if that % is right. It would slow you down a bit having a slower cpu.

Agp 4x likely isn't a major problem with a 9800pro, but I may be wrong. People say that agp cards barely can use agp 4x's speed let alone 8x.

A 6600gt won't be much faster than your 9800pro, but the 3ghz cpu would make it work faster(less bottleneck).

I think you should just get a new cpu for your current board, depending on what your board can support, or a new cpu and a new board.
So a cpu'd be about $180 us, and a board would be $60-100.
I don't think there's any reason to ditch the 9800, at least not yet, although in bf2, it may not be very fast on high settings even with a new cpu.

Or if your board has the capability, you could overclock your current cpu, and see if it increases your performance.

Greetings. I have a P5WD2 Premium MB with duel nvidia 6800 GT's 1gb Corsair 800mhz ram. Problem is when I go into the properties of the Vid card there is no option for SLI??? Can anybody help me out here finding how to either activate it or fix it?

A:SLI option not showing up in settings?

you need the sli drivers, one or two hardware bridges, and the appropriate bios settings to get sli to work. without any one of these, you'll never get sli to function.

After re-installing my HP 4070, the scanning software showed only TIFF and
Compressed TIFF options while earlier I had JPG and BMP.

To get back BMP and JPG options, I deleted the Registry entry under HKEY_USER....
Software\Hewlett-Packard\DigitalImaging\CUE Settings\0000_4070]
"ScanPreferencesSettings", and Run the HP Scanning software.
It will recreate the Key with default settings and the next time you start the
HP scanning software you will have all the four save options.

Important:
Backup registry before trying this! Modify the registry at your own risk!
You can highlight the Hewlett-Packard entry and export from file menu to a
desktop file for backup of just this entry. If something seems wrong, double
click on the exported file to restore the original settings in the registry.

Happy Scanning! - Raj
 

A:HP Scanjet 4070 save file option issues solved

I dont't see the options for file type

Hello,

I just bought an HP Scanjet 4070. After I install it and HP Image Zone v.4.0 that comes with the scanner, I don't see the options for choosing save file type, such as TIFF, etc. It automatically saves the scanned photos to JEPG. How I can change the option, and saved location?

Are you using the HP Image Zone, or other software to support the different file types?

Thanks very much.

A:mmjb soundcard proble

you've got to try and update your device drivers for the card. you can look up your model on your card's manufacturer's website, and downlaod the appropriate driver. i'd try playing your files on another media player and see if you get the same problem.

I bought 20 PC's for the company. I know have to install several programs such as office, networks, emails, other company programs etc. is there a way to copy the hard drive from one computer to another or do i have to do every computer seperately?
 

A:a way to save time

It is called disk cloning and you can do it with no problem if the computers are identical.
Unless you are prepared to cough up the cash for a commercial solution you will want to look at free programs called g4u and udpcast.

i have recently installed a hard disk in to my computer but i want to be able to save to my E:\ and not my C:\ automatically so i dont have to select where i want to save.
 

A:Hard disk problem (save to E rather than C by default)

If you are using IE:
Use a registry editing tool to navigate to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer


Insert a value with the following details:
Data Type: SZ
Value Name: Download Directory
Value: Full path of directory you wish to use.


If you are wanting to do this for MS Word , go to tools -> options (within word), and the File Locations tab.

I'm sure you can do it for other applications either through their options/prefs or through the registry.

When I select from a pull down or pop menu eg right click in explorer and 'delete', it leaves the word 'delete' with a highlighted backgrouns on screen unless I reset the screen resolution of the display. This 'ghost' also shows on my second display when set to 'clone' display mode. I have an NVidia FX5200 card running under Windows XP Pro. This is a pity since as far as everything else goes this is a great card.

A:Cannot save Excel file, marked read only

If you leave the disc open, you can overwrite files as long as the disc is a -RW disc and not a standard -R disc. Honestly I've had bad experiences with -RW and leaving discs open. That was ages ago and CD-Rs are so cheap now. O've been told that OfficeXP doesn't like floppy discs. I have no proof of this. I haven't used a floppy in quite some time either.

Hi

I have an asus P4R800-V deluxe motherboard with an inbuilt soundmax 'cadenza' board. The problem is I can't seem to get a microphone to work. I have the inputs on the back of the PC (the pink socket) but despite trying various mics I can't seem to get any sound to go in. On the soundmax control settings there isn't an option for microphone, and if i go to control panels - voice - all I get is an option for talk text, nothing about mic settings. I've tried the hardware set up wizard (so you cna test mics) but there's just no sound going in, and I've updated the asus driver. How do I get sound in??
Yours confused

H.
 

A:No microphone option on soundmax cadenza
