USB high speed working only as full speed.

Q: USB high speed working only as full speed.

Hi there.

I've a canon a480 digital camera and I'm connecting it to an asus m2n mx se motherboard. Both devices are high speed but the camera is recognized as a full speed device.

I'm running windows xp service pack 2. I checked the device manager and the enhanced usb host controller is listed and seems to be working OK.

So...I'm stuck...Any hints will be greatly appreciated!

Preferred Solution: USB high speed working only as full speed.

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.)

after dealing with PCI usb hub. i went and got external usb hubs and yes it worked on windows 7, but only FULL speed, my cam went from fast to laggie, iphone connect to usb hub had a message " it can perform faster if connect to a high speed port" , i check under device manager and it says " the device is operating on FULL SPEED "

i have check online, full speed = 12 mb/s , high speed = 480 mb/s

First question... Are they high speed hubs?
I have an older 4 port Dlink here that's never run 480... looking into the chip on the internal circuit board, it turns out to be a 12mbps chip... you can slow them down, but you can't scare them into running faster.

I've notice that on windows 10 and 8.1, task manager would show the my max cpu core speed is 2.3-2.4 ghz. However, my Core 2 Quad q8400 is rated at 2.66 ghz. I tried changing the power settings in windows and try lowering my cpu temperature, but my speed would never reach 2.66 ghz.

Should i be concerned about this or is it just a error on windows part? Also, i get different readings in Task Manager and CPU-z. Does anybody know a cpu benchmark that would allow me to compare my stock Q8400 to other Q8400s to see if it is on par?

A:CPU not running at full speed even at high performance power mode

I wouldn't worry about this one bit. The PC will use the required amount of processor power when it's required. And you don't need to run the processor at full speed all of the time.

I moved into a city that has 1gbps fiber and I got it. I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system. Anyone have any clue on this, I cant even imagine where to start looking for the setting or fix. Thanks

A:Limited fiber download speed in windows 7 full speed in linux

1gbps is fantastic. I suspect the Windows problem is a driver problem. Did you check the Windows 10TP. Maybe they fixed it. But then, the really big chunks you can always download with Ubuntu. I envy you, LOL.

Hello, I just got this x360 Spectre i7 15.6" laptop and I love it, except for the speed at which things load on the browsers. I have high speed internet and ran a speed test and the speed is as it should. I've tried multiple browsers, and even though I have a very strong connection to my high speed internet, it takes forever to open up even a single website. I regularly wait anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes for the site to load. I just got this computer so haven't even saved any files or installed any programs onto it besides anti virus software. How can I resolve this very slow loading time? I'd hate to have to return this computer, but cannot stand to have to deal with these frustrations with a computer I paid $1300 for!! Please help! Katy

Hi All,

I have an Adaptec USB 2 Connect 4000 B in my PC and just realized that two of the ports are not recognized as high speed. I was running off of the windows default driver so I went and updated the driver and after all ports were "optimized" I thought the problem was solved. However, now the computer does not recognize anything that is plugged into the card. I can roll back to the windows default but was curious if anyone has any thoughts as to why only 2 ports would come up as high-speed.

Any help is appreciated.

A:Hi-Speed USB ports not registering as high speed

Some hardware have USB 2.0 and 1.1 backward compability un seperate USB ports. It can also come from the device you connect and also the USB card's speed compared to your PC.

Try rolling back to the Windows default settings. If nothing can be detected still, that can be a presence of hardware defect. Return and exchange.

Your connection is 2 megabits per second I assume....that comes out to about 256KB/sec in a browser.

I have wireless internet through my cable provider. My signal strenght varies from 5 to 48 mbps on most days. Why isn't the signal consistent and what causes my internet to get so slow. Is there anything I can my cable provider?

A:High speed internet not so high speed

"call my cable provider?"

No. You are mixing up some terms, but it doesn't sound like this is an ISP problem.

For now I'm going to assume that you have cable internet service and a wireless router. If not, please describe. If so, please post the brand and model of your modem and router (or modem/router combo).

Wireless signal strength is usually given in terms of "n bars out of 5" or "good," "excellent," etc. What is yours, and does it vary? How close is the PC to the router, and what obstructions are in the way?

When your bandwidth varies from 5 to 48mbps it could be an adapter or driver or router problem, but more likely is wireless interference. Are there other wireless networks on your same (or close) channel?

Some people first just try changing channels (in North America the non interfering channels are 1, 6 and 11) without trouble shooting to see if that helps.

If you are having difficulty determining the channels of the networks you detect use NetStumbler for help:

Recently, I reinstalled my Netgear wna3100 driver. Ever since then, I've been experiencing problems with high pings in games where I normally never had problems with. Pages load slowly even just the home page of Google.

I've attached my ipconfig picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:High download speed and signal, high ping in games, slow page loads

To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.

I would also (while the device is plugged in)
go into the control panel - system - device manager - click the properties for it and make sure it's set to always on there as well.
I don't think the ipconfig can tell us much here since it's a data rate problem of some sort and not a actual connection problem from the sound of it.

The two things I mention above will hopefully keep your system from putting the device in 'low power mode' which may , or may not help your current problem.

I'm also curious if your system has recently slowed down in any other ways?

I have a Dell D500 with the Intel Pentium M @ 1.3 GHz. Lately my pc has been acting slow and I ran CPU-Z to check the clock and it said that it is running at 598.6 MHz. I was wondering why? I when into the BIOS and it is set at 1.3 Ghz as the CPU speed, but the SpeedStep is turned on. Is speedstep causing this to happen? If so, other than turning it off in the BIOS, which it wont let me allow, is there any way of overriding this. Right now it has Windows XP Home SP3 installed with 768 DDR RAM. I am using the "Always on" config in the power options btw.

I tried to update the BIOS but it wont let me since my battery is dead and wont says its not connected for some reason. Even if conncected to the AC outlet doesnt seem to matter.

Thanks in advance for your help.

You can buy USB 2 PCI cards quite cheaply. These are installed inside your PC.

Have no idea where you are so pricing is over to you, just use Google and look for USB 2 PCI card.

Its not possible to use "an adaptor" as the USB on your PC is likely USB 1.1, and you can't "speed it up" by attaching something downstream.

how do i get high speed usb to work on my computer? i have windows xp with sp2 installed, and the usb ports on my computer say usb 2.0, but when i plug my external hard drive into it says that it is plugged into a non high speed port. i really need to back my stuff up but it just goes too slow. does anyone have any advice?

A:high speed usb

goto device manager

control panel>
hardware tab>

You can identify whether your PC has Hi-Speed USB

Device Manager and click on the Universal Serial Bus section.
There should be an "Enhanced" USB host controller present.

Hi Guys,

I am about to purchase an external DVD burner, and on the spec it says High Speed USB connection. Does the USB port in my PC need to also be high speed? And if so, how can I tell if it is, before buying the burner?

A:High speed USB

What the specs mean is that you need a USB 2.0 port to run the device. Look in Device manager at your Universal Serial Bus Controllers entry and see if it says USB 2.0.

A:high speed usb 2.0?

They're all USB 2.0 I would guess, that's the normal way they appear.

Try this:

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

FYI, here's what Everest says about mine, and I know they're all USB 2.0 ports

my son bought some DVD-R disks.
Sony 1x-16x compatible & although it says is "wide compatble", he did not notice the ultra small caution:-
" standard-high speed media, 2.1/16x-high speed dvd-r revision 6....."
When he could not record on his HP laptop he thought the drive was brocken.
He asked me to record for him on my PC & brought those DVDs.
I did not read the caution either & my DVD did not work.
So we busted both our drives from carelessness & ignorance.
Anything we can do to correct the drives or are they permanently lost?

I created a thread before about how my devices wouldn't work with my USB, and I have come to the conclusion that my USB ports may not be high speed enabled. I did some research, but I was wondering how to enable them to be high speed...they are currently at 1.1 or something. Also, if I cannot enable them, I need help trying to update my BIOS.

A:High Speed 2.0 USB

If you have USB 1.1 you cannot change them to 2.0 through BIOS or software. You can install a USB 2.0 PCI Adapter like the example below (which is the one I use).

Easy to install, and can be found at Radioshack and other stores if you don't want to order online.

If you have USB 2.0 but only running at 1.1 you may need to install chipset drivers. What motherboard are you running, or if you don't know, then the model computer?

Hi, i have a asus p6t mobo, with a i7 920 cpu and a asus engtx 260 gpu. when i connect to a lcd monitor via a dvi cable the cpu fan is quiet but when i connect to a 42" lcd tv using the supplied dvi to hdmi plug the cpu fan runs faster and louder this is from a cold start in both instances.any ideas.?

I have set the cpu fan in bios to silent and used turbo mode this seems to quieten the fan down, i have also used the asus epu6 engine to control the fan speed,(I initialy thought it was the gpu fan), I have monitored the temps and run various benchmarks nothing seems to be out of place or running to hot it is just when the tv is connected.



A:high cpu fan speed

so normally on boot your cpu fan spins full speed , then as the bios kicks in fan speed control takes over , but with yours (and a tv connected) it stays at full speed after boot?

are you sure its the cpu fan and not your gpu fan? (sorry i have to ask )

When comparing speeds, remember to divide your speedtest result by 8. 0.89 mbps is around 101KBps.

Download speeds depend on many factors, inclduing the modem/router, traffic through your ISP at the time, and the type of download, just to name a couple.

What type of download is it? Are they torrents? These can often be slow.

Are downloads slow from everywhere?

You mentioned video buffering; Do you have downloads going at the same time that you are trying to view a video? Are there other people sharing your connection (eg other family members)?

You didn't say if you had tried rebooting the router/modem, or if you had been in contact with your ISP. These would be among the first things to try.

As you haven't stated what you have tried, I'm going to assume none of the following have been tried. Apologies if you have tried/tested the following.

If you plug a phone into the same wall socket at your modem do hear any noise/static or is is sound quality very poor or low volume? These might indicate physical line problems, which your Telco would need to address.

It's also possible the equipment at your local exchange is in need of a reboot. This is often referred to as a "Port reset". Your ISP can do this for you.

Other things you can try is replacing the phone and ethernet cable (if you are connected by cable), or replacing the line filter if you have one. If you have multiple devices on your phone line remove everything except your modem/router.

If you have a DSL connection you know that the speeds will vary dramatically from one hour to the next. But 2KBps is poor in any situation.

Have you tried doing ping and tracert to various sites? You ISP may want this information to place a fault report with your telco.

copy and paste results into an email to your ISP

ping -t (Stop it after a minute or so).
ping -t (Stop it after a minute or so).


See how you go with the above. Get back to us if you get no joy from your ISP/Telco.

Hey guys,

I'm a 3D artist, and I'm currently rendering out a whole load of frames. I'm using a reasonable, Sony Vaio laptop for the task, which has an Intel i7-720QM, however I'd like to know what CPU speed it's currently operating at.
I know that it says it runs at 1.6Ghz as standard but then can ramp up to 2.8Ghz, I just wondered if it truly was going at that speed whilst it's rendering.

A:How to know if CPU is running at full speed ?

The easiest way to tell is to run something like CPU-Z in the background while you are applying a load to the processor.

I have a problem mith my U41-70. Lately my laptop fan will run full speed as soon as I boot it up. The sound from the fan is really annoyying me. It also affecting the performance of the laptop. The laptop feels very slow and running apps will hang ocassionally. It is hard to do any work on this computer with problems like this. Hopefully someone can help me solve this problem.

A:U41-70 fan running full speed

Sounds like the fan is working hard due to dust blocking the air passages.    Computers are like electrostatic dusk collectors, so you have to clean them regularly to keep them running at their optimum potential.   First I would use a vacuum cleaner hose and see if you can suck out any dust from the vents   Next, open OneKey Optimizer and see if you have the Dust Removal feature, and if so run it.    That will run the fan at high speed both forward and reverse and try to blow out dust.   Stand back and prepare for a cloud of dust if it has not been run  Click on this link if One Key Optimizer is not installed to install. U41-70 OneKeyOptimizer dowload How to install and operate the One Key Optimizer  If you do not have the Dust Removal option, buy some canned air for cleaning electronics and use that to try to blow out any dust you can, starting with blowing through backwards with the vaccuum on the oppostite vent. If the air flow is restricted, the CPU will heat up, and its performance will be degraded, so keeping it dust free is very important. Good Luck

I have a Benq 48x16x48

I have DMA enabled but it is only at level 2.

Surely it should be at level 4. Im sure I have seen it at this before.

Im using XP and have uninstalled the IDE drivers and restarted. But it just wont go any higher.

When I try to burn at anything above 16x on a cd-r it fails.

The CDRs are able to write at least 32x.

Please help!

A:CDR Not Burning Full Speed

Update the chipset drivers for the MB. You can get them directly from Via, Intel etc or usually through the MB or computer manufacturer’s site.

DMA2 is about 100X. Some burners are only DMA2.

If by failure you mean a coaster you shouldn’t be having that problem with burn proof enabled. If the throughput is slow it should stop and refill the buffer.

Confirm you are writing from the HD when this happens. If you are trying to copy from the CD-ROM drive you have a completely different set of problems.

Now my problem is that i am not getting my full internet speed,like if my network meter shows my download speed as 1MBps in actual download like on IDM i will only get aprox 500-600KBps , and the worse part even with such speed my browsing speed is extremely slow it takes about 15-20 sec to load Google homepage.

Solution that i have tried:
1: Updated Windows
2: Driver Updated
3: Scanned with Norton Internet Security 2014 also checked after disabling Firewall and Real Time Protection
4: Scanned with Kaspersky Pure 3.0 also checked after disabling Firewall and Real Time Protection
5: Scanned with Windows Defender
6: Checked with No Internet Security Software installed
7: According to me there is no other problem with system being corrupt or anything like that

Any kind of help is appreciated..Thanx..!!

A:Not getting my full Internet Speed

3G network providers usually do not guarantee full speed all the time because it depends of signal strength, and particular cell repeater as it works over mobile phone network.
Can you check if the connection is thru GSM or WDCMA or something like that ? There should be a setting in the modem software, probably under Tools/ Network settings. GSM is much slower then the rest of them.

Repeats, then runs at 'normal' speed. The hard disk spins and the LED indicates hard drive is working. No video output. Tried a VGA monitor as well, nothing. Then after a minute the fan accelerates to full speed and just keeps going. Tried blowing out what little dust was in it, un-plugged and re-plugged all the connectors.

A:i am not geting the full cpu speed !!

Hi m8!

You don't have a problem at all! Your CPU will set it's clock lower so that it will consume less power and provide less heat while it won't run heavy applications. If you try running an intense app like a game or a video editor for example clocks will automatically go up and reach full speed. You can disable this feature from your BIOS (I think it is called SpeedStep or something) but I do not recommend it - Everything is fine with your CPU!

You can test what I say for yourself. Load a CPU testing programm like Everest and see the speed while in Windows, then load a game, Alt+Tab and see the speed now.

or you can use and type each item in the startup item box... and will tell you if you need it or dont.....
if its the fan making the noise try getting a new fan and see if that helps any.

go to start--->run---> type msconfig in the runbox and click ok.

A few months ago, I played with my services and sped my (Desktop) computer up. I'm not exactly sure what I did, but when I start up my computer (aka cold boot), my download speed doesn't even reach 1 Mbps. I forget what the upload speed is. My FiOS plan is 15 Mbps Down, / 5 Mbps Up. When I RESTART my computer, I do another speed test and everything is fine.

I recently changed from MSE to Bitdefender, but the problem started occurring before I migrated, so that's not the problem. Any suggestions what this could be?

My computer is wired to the router.

A:Why do I need to restart to get full Down/UP speed?

Please post the info requested here:
Basic Requirements Before Posting your Networking Thread
You can set your services settings to the default settings detailed here:
? Black Viper?s Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Service Configurations

Then do a few speed tests in a row using this website: by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test

Restart and repeat the speed tests a few more times.

Open Resource Monitor and select the tab named Network. That should let you see what apps are using bandwidth. Leave Resource Monitor open and keep checking your connection speeds via the speedtest website until you notice a drop in speed several times in a row. Then quickly check Resource Monitor to see if some app is hogging your bandwidth.

This is not a perfect test since there are ways for apps to hide themselves from Resource Monitor... but it is worth a shot.

Has anybody used these? I'm trying to get my camera to get ready to take the next shot as quick as possible....cutting down write times. Anybody? I'm using MMC atm and have been told SD will be quicker anyway?


A:High speed SD cards?

I think most digital cameras will run faster with SD than with MMC. Whether they will run faster with a high speed card than with a slower SD card depends a lot on the camera.

Generally 1X is 150k/sec. So a 32X card would have a write speed of around 4.8Mb/sec, which is fast enough that many cameras would not benefit from going faster. And many cameras, especially older models, will not benefit from over 2Mb/sec. Some of the newer cameras do get a little better cycle times with even faster cards than 32X, but no by a lot. I decided to not take a chance with my new camera and bought a Sandisk Ultra II card for it, which is around 60X. Some people who bought the same camera went with an even faster Ultra III, but I don’t think they are getting faster performance.

A:Where can i get a 50 ft. high Speed USB 2.0 Cable

You can't. About 15 feet is the longest you'll likely find. You'll have to get some form of repeater in there, like a hub or maybe even a string of these would work: but I wouldn't trust 3-4 of those in a row.

I'm sure there is a better way for what you are trying to do, perhaps if you told us someone could suggest something better.

I'm looking at the possibility of either buying or renting a high speed camera. I'm not seriously looking because I'm a broke college student, but just for the sake of knowing I tried to do a little research. I found that most of the quality cameras out there wouldnt give me a price or even an estimate.
So the only real spec I would like is for it to be able to do 1kfps.
I was looking at something like this:
ie. something that would plug directly into a computer without the need to get extra hardware for the camera.
So if anyone knows anything about high-speed capture, any information would be helpful.

Is there a option to downgrade the speed fan a little bit because
the fan is really noisy and I can't work with it!

Please give me a suggestion!

I bought a 320 gb external hard drive for my wifes 4 year old Dell dimension 8200. It came with an 80 gb hard drive. I installed a 160 gb internal hard drive a couple of years ago. The motherboard would only recognize 120 GB. My wife downloads and shares movies so she need the new external drive. When I activate the external drive it tells me my Dell does not have a high speed USP port. Any opinions on how to update her computer would be appreciate. One other question; her computer came with 256 mg

Recently, something happened to my computer and a large amount of files were moved to documents and settings. Before this happened, my usb ports were recognized as hi-speed usb 2.0 ports. After this event, however, whenever i plug something into my usb drive, it tells me that"this usb device can perform faster if you connect it to a hi-speed usb 2.0 port". It then tells me to find one that is hi-speed, but all are listed as regular usb ports. Can anybody help me with this problem? Thanks.

My P50 was silent, but since I updated the BIOS to 1.29 (to get RAID capability), the fan seems to spin from time to time. I notice the noise as it sounds like a jet engine, each time running about 5-10 minutes before going silent again.
Spec: i7-6700HQ CPU, 64GB RAM, FHD screen, NVIDIA Quadro M1000M. Upgraded the OS from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro, and the standard 500GB HDD to 500GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD. Latest change between the fan noise is just the BIOS upgrade. Weird.

W510, S110, W530, E330, E440, Q190, another E440, another Q190, Yoga2, P50, W520... and selling out all Q190s

I can confirm that - it was a more quiet on the 1.28 BIOS. The fan starts to kick in at around ~30% of CPU usage after ~5 seconds.

well hello hp. My question is i have the hp compaq dc7800p with intel q35 chipset. I also have the intel core 2 duo e6750 that comes to 66C without spining the fan at high speed. I checked from intel site it says that Tcase is 72C. Also i have problem with the chipset it has too big temperatures when playing games. It goes up to 80C. What should i do. Should i change cpu fan or does it starts the high speed at 70C, and for chipset how to cool it down to at least 60C i have the normal aluminium chipset without cooler. The games i play are battlefield 3 and 4 and yesterday my pc freezed, and when i restarted funs gone in full speed but nothing showed on screen for 5 minutes, now is everything fine luckily but i wory to much.

I live in an area that doesn't have cable or DSL so I opted for buying a wireless card for my computer. That has helped a lot but I can only get two bars of signal strength and I still don't get enough bandwidth to get my favorite internet radio station without constant rebuffering. There is an external antenna jack on the card, so I wanted to buy an antenna (a rare thing, apparently) but I don't want to spend the extra 150.00 if it won't make a difference. So, my question is: Is signal strength proportional to bandwidth?
Nobody at the Sprint store had a clue and even the "geeks" at the local electronics store didn't know!

i install windows 7 ultimate 32 bit in my 3.0ghz cpu 1.5 ram 250gb hard disk 256 nvidia memory card...
i just notice that its fast but my cpu fan become noisy and the cpu speed is sometimes always in red..i just use internet explorer and watching movies...
is there any way to resolve this??? here is my spec:

A:CPU in Very high speed and noisy

What do you mean its in red? Do you have a utility showing you some read-outs? Does red mean high temp or high fan speed?

Anyway, it seems like your processor is heating up and the fan is trying to compensate. Reboot into bios, find PC health status or something similar, and find temperature. In what range is your CPU temp? 75 deg C or higher is not good!!!

Is your heatsink snugly fit to the processor? Test this with the unit off of course. The heatsink should be very tightly on.

I live 6 months in Florida and 6 months in Wisconsin. I currently use dial up for my internet service. Dial up seems to be getting less and less efficient. I have been exploring high speed. The only options I have in Florida are sattelite and cable. The only options I have in Wisconsin are sattelite and DSL. The most desirable situation would be to use the same Internet Service Provider in both states. That limits me to Sattelite.
In researching Sattelite (i.e. Hughes or Wild Blue), I found a very high percentage of disatisfied users of Sattelite. I'm wondering if anyone out there has any information or experience with the use of high speed Sattelite internet service. Or maybe, I should just stay with dial up.

Hi guys,

I need some help on a issue that really puzzle's me.

After I tried to make a bios update to the ultimate (February 2012) version, within windows 7, I've obtained an error message stating that I had no permission to make the update. Since then, the fan starts to rotate in high speed, as soon as I start the computer, just after the logo display.

Since then I've upgraded the bios using the Dos procedure, but the proble persists. It performs like a fully fledge high capacity server regarding the noise fan.

How can I troubleshoot this and solve it?
Thank you.

My CPU fan gets extremely fast about every 20 minutes, and it lasts about thirty seconds.

I'm worried my computer is overheating. I use it for work.

I had my motherboard replaced about a year ago. My CPU fan and my motherboard are now two different brands, so maybe the repair guys used the old fan with the new motherboard, somehow leading to this problem.

I took the fan out and cleaned out a huge buildup of dust. Now the fan still speeds up every 20 minutes, but now it goes much faster.

Thanks in advance, Regards, James.

A:High Speed Usb Ports

Whether a USB port is version 1 or 2 depends on the hardware--in other words it's one or the other.
If right click on My Computer, click Manage, select Device Manager from the left pane and select USB Controllers from the right pane and look for something that says "enhanced". That will indicate that you have a USB2.0 controller. Then it's just a matter of actually plugging your devices into the ports connected to that controller.

we have a problem with brand new Tecra S11 / Windows 7 64bit. The CPU fan is on noisy high speed when switching on and booting to Windows. No change after logon. Speed stays unchanged until going to suspend mode one time. After wakeup everything is OK.

For me it seems to be an issue with the firmware (BIOS). Updated to V1.70 but no change. Same issue with all S11 we have.

Any ideas?

I am trying to get a job and I need to fax my resume. Is there a way to fax over a high speed cable modem, if there is how to I do that? if not what do I do?

A:High Speed Faxing

Cable modems are not fast telephone modems, they are completely different.

Faxes really only go at one speed. Even having a faster telephone modem would not help.

Many places like Kinkos (Copy centers), Office Max, Staples, have fax machines, Libraries often do as well.

(BTW, there are some online faxing services out there but most that I found via google were pay type ones.)

So here's my dilemma:

After this problem with Bsods and such my video card only wants to run at x4 speeds. It was running at x16 speeds when I first installed windows. Now for some reason it only wants to stay at x4 sometimes it will go to x8 after a reboot.

What are you guys' thoughts? I have the latest 11.11 drivers from ati's site. Both power plugs from psu into the card are in place.

I feel like I'm taking a performance hit here. I ran a furmark and the scores have dropped since I installed windows and it was at full x16.

A:Vid card not running at full x16 speed.

This is kind of tricky, if the hardware is seeing it that way it's not a windows problem, it's a hardware issue. If windows is somehow dumbing down the hardware. I could only blame chipset or graphics drivers for incorrectly interpreting things.

I have a Gateway notebook that has a 1.3GHz processor. Most of the time it only runs at 591 - 791 MHz. I work for Nissan and need an application called Asist. In order for me to be able to install Asist, it performs a system check to see if it meets the minimum requirements. Upon starting the install of Asist, it tells me the proc is only running at 700 MHz (the minimum proc speed must be 1000MHz ) which does not meet the criteria and it exits the installation. How can I get the proc to run at full throttle while I perform the system check so that the software will continue the installation? Is there an application that can run up the proc? There are no settings in the bios that will allow me to do so.

I have a connection of 256 Kbps and effectively i will get approx. 200kbps of net speed. This info i got by running speed tests available in the internet itself. I am getting a download speed of 30kbps only.Most of the time, we will keep the download window and leave the pc without doing any browsing in parallel. So my doubt is , is there any way to utilise that entire bandwidth for the download itself. i.e instead of 30kbps download speed, i should get 200kbps speed itself...? Is this possible to do either in Linux/Windows..?? Can someone help me out ??

A:Full Bandwidth speed for Downloads

If I understand your problem correctly, it sounds like the website you're downloading from has an upload limit of 30k/s per user.

You could use a download manager like FlashGet which allows you to appear to the site as though you are more than one user, effectively splitting the download into several parts, each getting 30k/s at the same time.

In the Add New Download window that appears when you download a file using FlashGet, increasing the Threads from main site number from 1 to 4 should increase the download speed from 30k/s to 120k/s. You can experiment with this number, but going too high will cause problems for the website, other users and yourself, so keep it below about 6.
