hey everyone, im changing my processor but i need a bit of help!

currently my processor is a:-

socket 478
CPU Speed : 2.66GHz
Bus Speed: 533MHz
L2 cache speed: 512kb

this is what i am planning to change to:

socket 478 (obviously )
cpu speed: 3.20GHz
Bus Speed: 800Mhz
L2 cache speed 1MB

however, this is what i am worried about.. ive read that To obtain the FSB of your Processor, a compatible motherboard that can support the Bus speed must be used and this is what it says in my mainboard manual:-

"supports socket 478 for P4/celeron processors with 400/533MHz"
AND
"Core Frequency from 1.8GHZ to 2.8GHz and up"

for quote number 1.. does it mean i wont be able to get a bus speed of 800MHz as my motherboard can only support up to 533MHz ?
for quote number 2.. will i be able to get 3.2GHz from this new processor?

thanks in advance!

Greetings folks,

I'm looking to change my processor from an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ to an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+ (Socket 939). I don't intend to change from the current cooling arrangement, but am not sure about the thermal compound. When changing the processor, will I need to get and apply new thermal compound?

I bought a brand new HP Officejet 6500A last week and installed it just fine over the wireless connection.

Yesterday I apparently made a bad click on a website and contracted a trojan virus. After scanning with anti-malware bites and combo fix trojan is gone. However, my printer will not work.

I have uninstalled and re-installed with the CD and from the drivers on the website. Every time it tells me printer can not be installed printer processor does not exist.

Please help, I have a ton of work to get out and can't do anything without the printer.

A:Print Processor Does Not Exist

Hi MidwayMom!

Let's see if there is an avail date in your system restore before the problem occurred for us to be able to restore your computer to an earlier date.

Start Menu - All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore.

Please see if there is a date in your system restore before the problem was encountered. After system restore, ur pc would reboot itself & pls. note if there would be a messgae saying that your computer has been successfully restored to the date u have selected.Then let's see what happens... if we don't have restore date/ not successful with the system restore we'll be doing other steps. :)

Hello

As the title says, I wanna change my motherboard processor, and insert an SSD aswell while keeping the old harddrive.

Was wondering if I need to perfom a new reinstall on windows or if I can just transfer windows itself to the SSD and then just keep going. I was also wondering if my windows install will messup if I insert my new motherboard due to new BIOS.

Thanks
 

A:Changing motherboard and processor

Its always a good idea to fresh install when changing motherboards. A fresh install will minimize any issues that could arise from different hardware configurations. I've also heard that Windows setup detects an SSD and optimizes Windows for use with the SSD.

You should also keep in mind, an OEM license for Windows is not be transferable to a new motherboard. The motherboard is the one component that constitutes a new machine. OEM installs are bound to the motherboard they are activated on.

A:Changing a processor chip

I would check ww.Ebay.com for that processor, use this link Ebay 1.4Ghz Athlons . I got an Athlon 1.4Ghz 266Mhz FSB for $42 there about 6 months ago. You would have to be really lucky to find that processor online anywhere else for under $100. Installing a processor is very easy but you have to be careful with the pins on it and when you reinstall the heatsink on it. It literaly is Plug-n-Play. Make sure you use some kind of thermal paste like Artic Silver on top of the processor between it and the heatsink.

P.S. Dont get the Duron, even though its 1.3Ghz your 900Mhz Athlon still outperforms it in most things like games.:grinthumb Also, if a 266Mhz FSB one is cheaper to get you should be able to use that but it will just run at 200Mhz FSB on your motherboard, someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

A:Win 7 OEM License - Changing Motherboard & Processor

If you change the motherboard to a different model or manufacturer technically the OEM version cannot be activated as it is tied to the motherboard. However, I know Microsoft has made some exceptions.

I'm facing the same thing right now. I suspect a problem with my motherboard. I have another to replace it but it is a different vendor and I'm afraid Microsoft will not activate it. I've considered an "anytime upgrade" from Home to Pro version but I don't know if that will change the OEM version into a full version. So, I'm stuck.


XP was different and the process was much more lenient.

A:Solved: Changing out a laptop processor

Laptops have limited upgradeability, and the processor is an area that generally shouldn't be upgraded. Laptops will only support a small set of processor upgrades. If you think you can buy a low-end laptop and pop in a high-end processor, you're seriously mistaken. The board won't handle it. The chassis won't handle it. "Opening" a laptop involves removing dozens of tiny screws of all different sizes and removing many small, fragile, pieces of plastic. Most people lose or damage at least one part when disassembling a laptop. And of course doing so completely voids the warranty, so if you break something, you're out the cost to replace or repair it.

Buy a laptop that actually meets your needs.

Hi guys,

I am going to change my motherboard, processor and RAM. However, I will be using the same HDD. Is it necessary to re-install the OS after I have set up the rig? I am using the drivers that come with Windows 8, so driver compatibility ought not to be a problem.
Thanks in advance!

A:Keeping old OS while changing mobo and processor

Short answer--New Motherboard=New License Key if you have an OEM OS version. Sorry

The reason is your license key is embedded in your BIOS, and the BIOS is embedded with the MOBO.

If you paid for a license key separately then you can use the OS with the new MOBO but you should do a clean install because all the drivers will be wrong and it probably won't even boot.

EDIT:
You could try to put the drive as-is into the new machine, boot off the Win8 installation media, and do a repair install. This will search for drivers that match the current hardware
Three notes:
1) Clone the drive first so that, in case of damage, you still have your data.
2) You will probably have to phone Microsoft to re-activate the copy of the OS. They've been decent about it with others.
3) If it works, immediately go to the Microsoft Update site and see what updates are needed for the drivers that you just installed

I am thinking about helping my friend install a new motherboard and processor while keeping all of the other components he has. I read on another board that you can go the Device Manager and uninstall everything, swap the board and processor, and then when you boot install the correct drivers.

Is this possible? I don't know if his install of XP is OEM or not. If it is, I think a reformat would be necessary with a non-OEM XP disc.

Any thoughts?
 

A:When changing motherboard and processor, is XP re-install always required?

mine worked fine when i changed the motherboard and cpu but eventually after backing up my data, i did do a clean installation just to get the kinks out. you dont have to but it is recommended so you can get the most out of your hardware. i did mine backwards for some strange reason, best way would be to backup now and then change the hardware and reinstall.

I have 2 years+ worth of stuff on the HDD, that I do not wish to re-install and/or download.

Someone "told me" that I could just take every peripheral and connect them to the new(er) mobo and Windows would "find the new(er) mobo" and "take care of the rest".

I have a Study Guide with questions in Microsoft Works Word Processor and I wanted to fill in the answers in a different font and color. But every time I click the question I want to answer, it automatically changes to the font and color of the question. So I have to type the answers and then highlight it and change the font and color manually. I have a ton of questions to answer and it is getting to be really time consuming to have to go back and change them all manually. Is there a way to set the font and color to be locked and never change even if I click a word or line that has a different font and color?

Changing processor state reduces it :S the fan to make such a loud noise I decided to use SpeedFan to try and work out the problem There are some unusual things I have observed When I open a simple java browser game Runescape in this case the Temp reaches C This is simply on the start screen not playing the game at all However this is what really confuses me and I m sure you can make sense of it When I go to the quot Power Options quot in Control Panel click quot Change plan settings quot and go to the quot Processor power management quot section it gives me the option to change the quot Maximum processor state quot This was previously at so I changed it to and changed the quot Mininum processor state quot to Magically the sound dissappeared The Runescape start screen gave me very little fan noise and there was no noticable difference to the performance of the game If anything it ran smoother Even though Vista told me my performance should now be reduced And whats more Speedfan tells me the Temp is at a mere C So changing these settings caused a reduction of C and gave me almost silent fans from deafening ones What is going on S So I now don t have the crazy fan noise but I don t understand why I had to change the processor state options to reduce it I ve had this PC for years with it on for both min and max processor state and it has previously been fine no excessive noise This is a good temporary fix but I m worried there may be something wrong with my processor like it is reading the temperatures wrong or for some reason just pushing the fan to go fast unnecessarily Also I don t even understand what I have changed and is it safe to run the PC on these lowered settings The control panel tells me that from reducing the processor state I should now have reduced performance but I don t see any Or is this just because I am not running the really intense programs that require the full processor I d really appreciate any advice help as I m just really confused right now and not sure if I should replace the fan power source or if it s something more serious like with the processor Thanks nbsp

A:Dell Inspiron 530 extreme fan noise and temps. Changing processor state reduces it :S

quick question have you tried opening up your pc and looking inside the fan and cleaning it out? that can sometimes be a cause of nosiy fans try using a vacumme cleaner and cleaning out the fan if that doesnt help then im not to sure what is wrong with it

I got this error message: Print processor doesn't exist in my Win 8.1 x64 system.
Per suggestions found on the net, I checked that winprint.dll is present in Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\x64

Another tip that I've found
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Print Processors\winprint
At that registry key, in the right window, is "Driver" of the type REG_SZ and is the "Data" winprint.dll?

In my system the "Print Processor" has no sub-folder. I changed the value to winprint.dll but couldn't find out how to change the type to "Driver". In case somebody tells me that, should I do it in "Print Processor" or should I create a sub-folder "\winprint" ?

Actually, I don't have any physical printer, I'd used and would like to use PDF creators (Adobe, Nitro, Wondershare)

Thanks a lot.

Yesterday I bought a new mother board for my PC my Processor model is AMD Athlon II X3 440 Triple Core Processor, but after changing Mother Board in system information it's showing my Processor as AMD Phenom II 4 B40 four core processor. I don't know why it is showing like this. Is this dangerous for my hardware? I used AM2N68-AM PLUS before and now I changed M5A78L-M LX. Except this every thing else is perfect.

A:Processor info is showing wrongly in system info after changing MB

It's not dangerous, but I believe you can get it to display correctly. All you have to do is open Device Manager, right-click each entry for the CPU and choose Uninstall. When you're finished, reboot and then open Device Manager up when it's done rebooting and check the CPU again. It should be showing up correctly after that, but if not then we'll go from there.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

I recently upgraded to a HP,Media Center editon pc, Windows XP, AMD Athlon 64 3800+2.4 GHz Processor.

When trying to install Photoshop Album 1.0, I receive this message, "This operating system is not supported by Adobe Photoshop Album. We support Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 , XP Intel Pentium III or 4 processor".

Could my problem with installation be the Athlon processor? When purchasing this computer, our salesman convinced us that the Athlon was just as good as the Pentinum Processor. Any thoughts on this? My computer is less than a week old and having serious thoughts about returning it. I have had problems with other installations. Am I to expect more problems with software and the Athlon processor. Any helpful suggestions will be appreciated. I am getting desperate for advice about the processor.
 

A:Athlon Processor versus Pentinum Processor in Windows XP

What the message is telling you is that Windows Media Center Edition 2005 is not one of the operating systems that Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 supports. It has nothing to do with whether an Intel processor or an AMD processor is installed. I checked the system requirements for the newer version 2.0, and it also is not supported by Windows MCE 2005.

By the way, Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 has a 13.5 MB patch for it and will upgrade it to version 1.0.1. You can get it from here.

Thanks

A:Diff between centrino processor and core 2 duo processor

In a word nothing, the centrino branding does not refer to any specific additions to the processor, it is simply a label that is attached to laptops which use intel branded processor, integrated graphics and wireless chips.

Centrino is more of a marketing tool that Intel use to boost sales of their graphics and wireless chips, so you can pretty much ignore it

I need to order a new desktop for my office to replace a 3 year old machine that runs at 3.2 Ghz. The new machines that Dell offers only has this option:

Intel® Core™2 Extreme QX6700 (8MB L2 Cache,2.66GHz,1066 FSB)

I don't think there is a standard measuring stick that is used to compare all the processor speeds that I can find or understand. I work with CAD programs that use up a lot of resources and I typically get the fastest available and max the RAM. With all the latest software that I have to install, I need the new machines to run faster than the ones they replace.

Can anyone tell me how this 2.66GHz processor compares to my current machine? I don't have the exact specs for it, this is what it lists on the dell support site for my system - PROCESSOR, 80532K, 3.2GHZ, 1M, 533, M0.

I have an HP C5280 printer running wirelessly via a TP Link wireless print server and D Link Di 624 wireless router. I can print successfully from either my desktop (which is connected direct to the D Link router) or either of my laptops (wireless). However, when I select the double-sided print option I get a print error message after re-inserting the odd number pages to print the other side of the paper and then click 'continue'.

Could I resolve this by connecting the printer both direct to the desktop using USB AND leaving it connected via the wireless TP Link print server? This would enable me to print double-sided from my desktop (as I did before when the printer was only connected via the USB desktop port).

Hello,
I wasn't sure where to post this question so I am posting it here. The issue we are having is printing to a networked copier. If we print one job at a time everything works. But if I send multiple jobs all at once and the queue builds up the copier just hangs and the jobs just stay in the queue. The only way to get it going again is to turn the copier off/on. I've updated the drivers for the copier, changed the patch cable on copier and switch, moved it to a different port on the swtich. None of those things did anything. I am actually thinking there is something going on with the copier. Any help would be great. Thanks!!

I have an end user that is printing to a networked Xerox printer. When he prints, his print jobs automatically show in the print queue as "paused". This only happens on the Xerox. I had him try doing this with a networked HP in his area and it doesn't happen on that printer.

I have removed and reinstalled his driver and device. It appeared to be working then a few days later, it does the same thing. We've even had Xerox flash the printer and reset their printer software on the machine as well. From what I see, most of his print jobs are mostly from Outlook and/or Word. Any thoughts here?

I have been operating this color printer for 3 years now in our small business. over the past year, we have erratic problems with fuzzy print..
Typically, the first page may be fuzzy( dots or ink below character) and the resy may be OK ... Or occasionally, a page or two in the middle of a print job may be fuzzy.
WE have had techs spend many hours, replacing parts, cleaing the drum and whle the quality is improved (not as fuzzy, we stll get an occasional page with this problem.
This has been a good printer.. the solid ink is easy to maintain and the overall ink cost seems less than other color printers we have had.

Should I junk this machine?

Hi: I have done a Print Screen of my desktop and pasted it in Paint. Then saved the file on my hard drive - which I have done in the past. But now I cannot get it printed out on a full page (81/2 x 11 Page). Why? I have done this before but cannot do so tonight. I can print but in smaller size.

Thanks,

Once you paste it in Paint, click on Resize. What does it show for Percentage and Pixels?

Also try opening it in Windows Photo Viewer and printing from there.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums!

I don't have a printer installed so I decided to test what happens if I try that myself. Same as you, nothing happens. So maybe your printer isn't recognized or installed properly?!

Help getting & installing a compatable driver for new Photosmart 7520.

Need to have 'Print Preview' in Printer Preferences. Newer Photosmart Printers have very few options under Preferences.

Have tried drivers for Office Jet 6100 & Deskjet 69800 as suggested in HP forums. Neither has 'Print Preview' in Printing Preferences.

My previous Photosmart C310 died, bought the 7520 as a replacement. If I remember correctly, when I upgraded to Windows 7 with the older Photosmart C310 I had to download an alternate driver. That printer worked fine for over 2 years with all the preferences. I failed to note the driver that worked with the C310.

Hope someone can help, or I'll return this one to Costco along with the $130.00 worth of ink.

A:Alternate HP print driver with 'Print Preview' for Photosmart 7520

After a week of frustration, I was able to locate an HP Forum with the information that works.
I used the alternate driver that was from my previous Photosmare C310.
Here is the link. Hope this is helpful for someone in the future.

Friends, I have a report with eight subs. I was trying not to show empty sub, and in subreport also part white.

Resolved, but to place it can shrink and can expand,
for all sections of all subreports also placed time zero for all subreports.
In the event when loading the subreport I repeat this code for each sub:
if Me.Filho0.Report.HasData Then
Me.Filho0.Visible = True
else
Me.Filho0.Visible = False
end If
In the event if you are not given for each sub I put:
cancel = True
As I open the report it is all empty, but when I print, it prints perfectly, if the sub is no data, shows
and also the sub fully expand.
Only when I open'm not seeing anything.
Thank you.

Basically, they want to print to external IP address 123.123.123.123:8765 and have IIS push that data to a shared printer at someone's workstation. Ideally we would set up six or eight of these, each with a different port on the public IP.

I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1

It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?

A:Print Screen button will print to the printer! how to stop

By definition the print screen function only sends the image to the clipboard so if the printer is also involved then something else -- some other software installed on your machine -- is the culprit here.

One way to find out what it is is by unhooking the printer and then watching the screen to see what error messages pop up when trying to use the print screen function.

Got a weird one.
Previously to print a internet document page I pressed CONTROL + P, a form appeared with the word PRINT near top, I clicked on PRINT and then the Printer printed the page.
 
But now, when I do the CONTROL + P the form appears, the word PRINT blinks for a moment and is replaced by the word SAVE>
 
Now I have to go through about 7 separate steps to get the machine to send the page to the Printer, as follows:
1- Click on SAVE
2-next form....select My Documents and type in a file name to which the page will be saved
3 Go to My Document folder
4-Find File Name in My Documents and click on it
5- Click on open space adjacent to file now on the screen
6- Click on PRINT, located in lower right of screen

Yesterday my black ink cartridge on my Canon i850 printer ran dry so I replaced it with a brand new cartridge. Now whenever I try to print, the color portion of the page prints fine, but the black doesn't print at all. For example, I printed a webpage and the color graphics came out okay, but the black text portion didn't show up.

I'm wondering if the new cartridge may be faulty. It certainly appears that I've installed it correctly, the same way I've done many times before. Since this problem arose immediately after I changed cartridges I don't believe I have a hardware problem or a printer driver problem. I have a spare black cartridge which I could try, but I don't particularly want to open a second brand new cartridge.

I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who might be able to solve my problem.

Thank you.

(Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, HP LaserJet CP1215)

When printing from Word (or any other normal application) the documents just sit in the print queue with Status = "Error - Printing".

If I stop, then re-start the Print Spooler service, they then print.

Strangely enough, this does not happen if I print from the HP printer diagnostic utility.

I've done complete re-install of the entire printer driver suite and I'm pretty sure everything that end is OK. So what's happening with the spooler? The error message isn't exactly very revealing .

Any help gratefully accepted!

That's odd. AFAIK, for HP AIOs, one cannot simultaneously use both ethernet and wireless networking.
I think it's "either-or".
I am surprised that you can have both ethernet and wifi enabled on the HP at the same time.
Normally, one would need to disconnect the ethernet to use the wifi, or vice versa.

One *can* use a local (USB) connection + either ethernet or wifi at the same time, though.

I suggest the following for starters:
Disconnect the 32-bit Win7 machine from the HP
Fully uninstall all traces of the HP drivers/software and reboot
Download a fresh copy of the HP drivers/software from the HP drivers/downloads site HEREBe sure to grab the correct drivers/software package for 32-bit Windows 7
There are 2 choices -- the full bloatware package and the "basic drivers"

Reinstall the HP drivers -- make sure you are in a Windows account with Admin privileges when you do; do not connect the computer to the HP until the HP setup wizard prompts you to do so
Perhaps try a USB connection from the computer to the HP?
One other thought: if the HP is still under warranty, HP phone support can probably walk you through proper setup and configuration. Over the years, I have found them to be quite helpful for these sorts of things.
Hope this helps a wee bit,

A:All Print Drivers Disappeared, Print Spooler Quits (7 Pro, 64-bit)

Hi,

I would suggest you can try doing System Restore to a date when your system was working fine. If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer performs as expected, then Uninstall and reinstall the printer Driver and check the functionality of the printer.

If you are using windows 7 you can connect your USB printer by following few easy steps mentioned below:Plug in the printer, and ensure that it's turned off. Also, set up the printer with ink and paper and all that other good stuff, according to the directions that came with the printer.
Connect a USB cable to the printer and to your laptop.
Turn on the printer.
Since you're using a USB printer it installs software for you on its own. After the printer has been set up and recognized by Windows, you can either print or save some energy and turn the printer off.


If you're having trouble adding your printer, open the Control Panel and double-click the Printers or Printers and Faxes icon to display the list of printers available to your computer. The Add a Printer or Add Printer task can be clicked to run the Add Printer Wizard, which helps you complete the printer setup task.

You can even refer to the HP support URL mentioned for further troubleshooting: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-topics/printer-installation/printer-usb-troubleshooting.html

I hv windows XP sp3.

When i try to print, the print window disappears. So cannot print. The zone alarm( Internet security) window comes up tells that dumprep.exe is going to start.

Also the printers in the printers & faxes in control panel disappears.

Then i get the printers back by restarting printspoll service from control panel.

The problem is with all the printers installed including print to PDF file.

waiting for guidance.

A:print window disappears when press print button

Go to Start/Run and type services.msc and hit enter. Scroll down in the Services window to Print Spooler. Right click it and choose Properties. Make sure the Startup type is set to Automatic and that the service is started.

I have three printers connected to this Linksys EPSX3 print server and almost 25 workstations (WinXp pro installed) using this three printers and can print fine with all the systems. Recently have formatted and installed one workstation with WinXp Pro and connected to the network domain with DHCP enable and firewall disabled on local machine. After installing the print server driver and going to the configure the print server dialog box, Im able to browse and view the print server name and ip but when I press ok it gives a error message " addport failiure" and the whole network get jammed. Nobody can print anything from any other systems and just has to reset the print server again to make it work.Can anybody explain whats goin on..

A:Print server Linksys EPSX3 print problem

problem solved.. Winxp Pro SP2 installed and which adds and enables the ICF internet connection firewall. I have disabled it in control panel firewall but some how it was loading automatically at startup and running. So went to services and set to start service manually. The print server port was added without a prob..

trying to reinstall my printer , when istall screen comes up a box comes on and states
PRINT SPOOLER NOT STARTED. DO YOU WANT TO START SPOOLER NOW I CLICK YES then
another box comes on and states OUT OF RESOURCES PRINT SUBSYSTEM IS UNAVALABLE
dont know how to get PRINT SPOOLER STARTED. I go to ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS,then to services, click on PRINT SPOOLER WHEN I CLICK START ERROR BOX comes on and states PRINT SUBSYSTEM is unavalible. SO how do i get PRINT SPOOLER to start? Printer was installed on my computer before and i followed same instructions but it wont let me install it now. PLEASE HELP
 

A:print spooler will not start/ print subsystem is unavalible

Welcome to TSG...What make and model is your machine? Which version and service pack is your Windows O/S? Make and model of the printer might be helpful as well.

Go to services again-double click the spooler service, click the 'dependencies' tab, and see if there are other services besides RPC which your print spooler requires. Some lexmark printers, for instance, require that a service called Lexbccs (not sure about the spelling) must also be running for the spooler service to start.

Okay.. here is one of those stupid simple things I never had to do before and can't figure out how to do it.. I know it's basic.. but .. I self taught so my training skipped around a lot.. sorry!

Basically I did a graph for a yearly set of values, not yet filled in.

My boss wants these charts to show percentages through 100% even blank, but it keeps defaulting to 0.something ranges.

For the life of me I cannot remember how to do this and on my search of the site was harry in trying to figure out a decent search range. Any help is most sincerely appreciated. I have a feeling it wil be a smack my head kind of thing.

Thank you!

Hello everyone,

I want to build a new system, and I was wondering just what the differences between a sever processor and a desktop processor are.

Would I see gaming performance decrease by using a Quad Server Core or a Quad Desktop Core?

I wanted to build a dual socket server core and have 8 physical cores.

Thoughts?
 

A:Server Processor Vs. Desktop Processor

I dont think any games are designed to take advantage of a dual socket setup. Windows Server OS's are designed to take advantage of dual socket setups. Some newer games are coming out which take advantage of single socket dual or quad core setups on desktops. A server based PC would not gain any performance for games IMO. You are better off investing the extra $ in a good video card.

I originally made one account with admin rights on my PC in June.

I added a standard account for my dad last week, but the only way I could customize the desktop and theme for him with larger fonts, non-Aero theme, fewer desktop icons, etc was to make his account an admin account also. Otherwise when I tried to open the Control Panel to customize things, I only got error messages saying stuff along the lines of "this page was unable to load". I also had broken shortcut images (generic Windows icons, no arrows) until I made it an admin account.

Now that I've made all the customizations I want to his desktop and theme, will removing admin rights and downgrading his account to a standard one screw up the customizations? Can I switch it back and forth if I wish to make additional changes or customizations in the future?

A:Changing account type - changing GUI and desktop customizations, too?

Okay, I guess I can answer my own question.

Switching an Administrator account to a Standard account does screw up icons in Computer - it makes them vanish, actually - but not those on the Desktop.

I have multiple networked HP printers, HP3600 and HP6300. Two computers are having similar symptoms: print jobs will be spooled for printing, yet they don't print. Reboot is required, then all jobs spooled will print. Following the re-boot, printing will work fine for a period of time - that is hours or maybe one day, but never longer than two days.

Operating System: XP with ServicePack 3

I've played with having the printer IP served from DHCP or fixed, with no difference in behavior. Print Spool services are running OK when this occurs.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated -been working on this for months, and it is driving us crazy.

I had the same issue and the information in the following link seems to address it. You need to use the group policy editor to make the changes as mentioned (gpedit.msc).
