Q: proxy settings are re-enabled automatically in LAN settings ...

i connected my laptop to wifi, for first few days everything went fine but suddenly one day my every(edge,chrome,firefox) browser showed a connection error saying 'unable to connect to the proxy server' i searched to internet and came to know about the proxy settings on LAN tab ( to uncheck the same ). i did unchecked and it worked !! but not for too long after a bit of surfing again the browser refused to connect with the same problem and when i again went to the LAN tab in internet options i found that the 'use proxy' was checked...... now thats unusual!. so.... whenever i am to surf the internet i must uncheck the proxy button again and again.i have also noticed that my browser homepage is also changed to some malicious ad website... please help!

Hi everyone I have a Netgear N wireless router that I bought and have been using since together with an adtec modem on my at amp t internet sevice My modem went out and I replaced it with the now recommended replacement modem which is the Motorola As a result and in doing so my settings are having to be reset on my N router for my wireless signal settings Resetting Netgear N300 on router... to be used for my wierless devices In trying to do so and in going through the setup Resetting settings on Netgear N300 router... of the router again I ve discovered in logging into the Netgear website to recover reset the router settings for the new modem setup I m being told by Netgear that the N router I bought came with only a day tech support and that I can purchase a tech support extended plan for for yr or for yrs for them to be able to help me and synchronize and reset the router settings Quite honestly I can t see spending this much extra money on support for a router that cost me in the first place I may as well just buy another router for to get another day tech support and to provide support in setting up the new one but it s the principle of the thing and it s such a waste to trash the present router when it is in perfect working order otherwise Then again if this is how shoddy and shysterish Netgear s tech support is I don t believe I would want to support them or in anyway encourage them in their use of a policy that is so unfair and lacking in flexibility to such a small assistance request to reset this modem which would not take them but maybe minutes or less My question therefore is this Has anyone out there experienced a similar or like situation and is there a workaround or another solution to this other than going through Netgear to reset the router s settings Is there a way to recover or discover the settings and reset them manually myself I very much appreciate any help anyone can offer and I thank you all in advance for any help and any advice anyone can offer Thanks alot nbsp

A:Resetting settings on Netgear N300 router...

Hey drpepper. You can manually reset your router settings to its default settings as they were when you bought it. I would disconnect the router from the modem and just use the simple procedure to reset the router. You can then access the router setup page and change the default password, network name (SSID), and set up your encryption mode (wpa2 preferred) and create a password/network key to secure your router. Save any changes you make, and when done,power off the router. Power on your modem, wait a minute,then power up the router, wait a minute, then see if you can detect your network. All of the info for doing this is in the N300 router setup manual, with the reset procedure on page 39.

I'm curious if there is any open source proxy-server-like software out there that I can use to accelerate web surfing. Amazon's Silk browser/platform for the Kindle, and Opera Mini do this for mobile clients; I'm mostly thinking about setting this up for laptop / desktop clients, so I'm not so interested in having a server render a webpage.

My setup is this: I have a few clients (my computers), on a high-latency internet connection. I have access to a relatively private server, which has an extremely fast internet connection.

Would setting up a proxy server on the server [machine] actually help connection speeds? I imagine things like Silk and Opera Mini compress data (don't send the same thing twice), and reduce the # of HTTP requests (for images, etc.). Would something like squid actually have the same effect? It seems to be targeted at the slow-website-server scenario.

We just bought a monitor U2713H direct from Dell.

When we click on Factory Reset, the monitor doesn?t go back to Factory default setting.

-In particular, Contrast/Brightness: 0.
In terms of Color Setting, Input color Format: None.
Preset Modes: Movie

-Then we click on Reset Color Settings, Input Color Format: RGB, Preset Modes: Standard.

-When click on Factory Reset again, Contrast/Brightness and Color Setting come back to the same condition as above (Contrast/Brightness are 0, Input color Format: None.
Preset Modes: Movie).

-After we try to set up Contrast/Brightness to 50/50, we shut down desktop or turn off the power button on the monitor. Then we turn on computer or turn on power button on the monitor, Contrast/Brightness are 0, Input Color Format: None, Preset Modes: Movie.

-In summary, all menu settings can?t be saved by the monitor and Factory Reset doesn?t work.

Any idea would be highly appreciated. Thank you a lot in advance

Hey, I was trying to setup an adhoc connection, but I'm faced with a dilemma.
I have internet via an ethernet cable, so I want to spread this wifi using my laptop's wifi connection.
However, whenever I connect the ethernet cable to my laptop and it's connected to the internet, the wifi light on my keyboard automatically turns red and the wifi router no longer works, hence I cannot create the adhoc connection.
After I remove the ethernet cable, the wifi light turns back on, and I'm able to create an adhoc network, but I won't have any internet to spread since, well, the ethernet cable is not plugged in...

I have an HP running on Windows 7.
Both ethernet and wifi adapters are fine.

How do I prevent my ethernet connection from shutting down my wifi router??

Thanks everyone!
 

A:Wifi router turning off automatically

Hmm; IMO, Windows is attempting to keep you out of hot water.

Your PC WiFi is not intended to act like an open hotspot. I you what 'guest' connects via wifi, you should manage that in the router setup (several have the option for guest vs lan users).

You were to create this kind of network:

router = = PC - - wif - - guests
The routing table needs special entries and in effect, you would be creating a dual-home environment (the guests could just as easily be a secondary ISP).

Hi!

I'm about to purchase Total War: Rome II and want to run it with "Ultra settings" and high framerate. My configuration is:

Motherboard: GA-EP35-DS3
Processor: Duo Core 2 E6850 3.0 GHz
GPU: GeForce 880 GT 512 MB

RAM: 4 GB DDR2

Do I have to upgrade my hardware? If so, what would you recommend? Would a new
GPU be enough?

I need all the help I can get. Thanks!
 

A:Ultra settings...

To answer your question, yes you will have to update, the 8800 GT is way out of date and I don't know for sure if you can run it on low settings with decent frame rate let alone Ultra. The Core 2 Duo will also be outdated by todays standards but for me the game is not too CPU intensive.

You can start by grabbing a new GPU, something like a R9 270X or GTX 760 will be enough to get Ultra with reasonable framerate, but your CPU will be the bottleneck next.

At this point, I would just about say start a new system, because I don't think reaching Ultra in Rome Total War 2 is going to be easy with a Core 2 Duo and for sure not on an 8800 GT

A:2 Monitors Have The Same Settings But Show Up Different Sizes

I have mostly fixed the problem! In the resolution settings there is an option that says make text and other items larger or smaller. For some odd reason all of the different monitors were set to different sizes. After switching all those to a small size. That immediately fixed the issue with games looking blown up and gargantuan on my 60 inch tv. But the charms bar was still huge. So going to the settings through the load up screen and not desktop mode in windows 8 I went to the settings and in the display settings there was another option for toolbars and whatnot which was set to default only on the 60 inch tv. When I set that to small like the rest that fixed the issue with that. So everything seems to be fixed right........ sadly no its a lot better than it was but not completely fixed yet.

While for gaming its definatly fixed. When I move an internet window from one to the other monitors the zoom sizes still change size between the 3 monitors. While this isn't a big issue since its something I can deal with. I would like to fix it if I can. What I would really like is to know if theres a way I can lock the zoom mode betwixt all 3 monitors for the internet settings. I checked the internet options and didn't notice anything that stood out to me for locking for fixing that.

When I was at my work computer it has 4 monitors, 3 are the same and 1 is a large tv. I noticed that when I moved stuff into the large tv such as an internet window, it didn't change the zoom size on my work station so im wondering what the difference is between them.

On a side note. For some reason when I start up games now most start up in stereoscopic mode. I figured out that ctrl+t shuts it off in most cases but it didn't used to do that and in my NVidia settings I cant seem to find any option for 3d vision/stereoscopic mode. This may require a full post but figured id ask it here for now.

Which model Router do you have. So we all can help you out.
Disconnect the WAN (internet yellow or blue port) first
Power cycle the Router unplug it

Power cycle the modem first wait 30 seconds then connect the power.
Turn on back the Router
Connect the Router to the Modem
It should get IP from your ISP and DNS Servers should be one to two of them listed.
All PCs on your network should be powered cycled or rebooted a this point.

Notice: Your New Router comes with CD use that to setup it up your new router. Leave the defaults active unless you know what your doing and until you get use too your router features.

A:Core i5-3570k overclocked automatically? Do I need a custom cooler?

I bet you have an ASUS motherboard, they have preset OCs. 41C is fine, but I would recommend buying this cooler just to stay safe: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099&Tpk=hyper 212 evo&IsVirtualParent=1
It will extend the life of the CPU. Plus, disable turbo boost when OCing.
If you want to go beyond the 4.5GHz mark (look for safe OCs online first), buy this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018

Up until recently, I'd never been particular about peripherals. In fact, it is only now that I've begun to experiment with the features of my mouse driver -- all of which are quite new to me. So I'm curious as to what mouse settings you guys use.

For now, mine are as follows:

- Polling rate is still at default 8ms.
- Mouse speed is at 6/11 in Windows, enhanced pointer precision off, MarkC fix enabled.
- Mouse dpi settings are at 1200 dpi on a 1920x1080 monitor. I toggle down to 400 dpi when necessary.
- Usually, I have the in-game mouse sensitivity set to medium or low.

I'm using a Corsair M60.

What settings do you use when gaming? Do you use these same settings for everything else?
 

A:Mouse settings?

I don't really have access to my desktop right now, so this is a wild guess on my memory, on what I use:

Windows sens. something like 6/10.
1080p monitor.
Maxed polling rate (1000?)
2600DPI on desktop
3400DPI on FPS and other usual games
5600DPI for some weird games with slow movement, or LoL/HoN/DotA (HoN I play mainly) or other RTS as necessary.

We are using Cisco DPC3825 DOCSIS 3.0 Gateway as our cable modem. I am trying to figure out if there is a way to set it so it connects through proxy. I don't see settings for it in the admin panel. Not sure if it can be done, just would like to avoid setting up a proxy server at home.
 

A:Can I set it to connect through proxy

Let's make sure we're on the same page - -

A normal ISP connection would be like

Code:
ISP === coax cable ==== Cisco Device ---- up to 4 PCs
The internet connection has already been made to the ISP when the Cisco device is powered on.
The MODEM functions on the coax side are not accessible or configurable.
From the LAN connections, you have the TCP side which is configurable.

Now it you are trying to use a proxy for A single PC, that's not to difficult. If you want something like

Code:
Cisco --- Porxy --- all Pc connections
then there's lots to work on.

Hello.
I have this new PC:
CPU: I-5 2500 (without the 'k') @ 3.3Ghz
GPU: ASUS GTX 580 direct cu II overclocked to 878 Mhz
Motherboard: Intel DH67CL
RAM: APACER 8GB DDR3 @ 1333 Mhz

I was trying to play Rome: Total War (a game made way back in 2004) at max settings and at 1600x900 resolution (which is the max resolution of my monitor) and I get an average framerate of 20 fps, often even lower. So I checked GPU usage during the game, turns out it never reached 20%. But when I lowered the graphics settings, the fps immediately jumped to 60. As far as I can tell from task manager, there seems to be high CPU usage during gaming, but it doesn't tell how much exactly. So does this mean higher graphics settings require faster CPU clocks and not just a faster GPU? Or does it just mean there's a stability problem with my PC that's affecting its performance?
 

A:Do you need higher CPU speed to play at higher graphics settings in games?

Hi everyone,
I need some advice please..
For quite a few years I had a Canon iP5000 and when I wanted to print a document from my PC I simply pressed PRINT and the printer would automatically come on print my document and then after a few minutes shut down again.
I was really annoyed when the nozzles got clogged and now the machine is useless.
I bought a new Canon MG5350 (slower and noisier and doesn't print anywhere as good as the iP5000 ). Can anyone advise me if it is possible to set the MG5350 up so as to operate the same way as I had the iP5000 ( I.e start when I press PRINT on my computer and shut down after printing).

Regards eddiemac.

A:Help with monitor settings

All LCD monitors have a native resolution. If you look through the documentation that came with your LCD monitor, it will tell you what the native or optimal resolution should be. Looking at your picture you have above, you are NOT running at the 19" LCDs native resolution. Most likely you need to be running: 1366x768, 1440x900, 1680x1050, or 1920x1080. Crank that slider all the way to the right, that is usually where the LCD screens native resolution resides. Hope this helps, take care!

Recently Windows updated both my partner's and my laptop with 23 updates for Vista. Ever since those updates over the weekend my partner keeps on getting a proxy server window appear on his desktop asking for a password.

We have Virgin wireless broadband and changed over from 3 Broadband. I told my partner to uninstall 3 Broadband, which he has done but it still comes up with this window. We have gone into all the Internet connection windows and unticked any option for a proxy server and it still comes.

Is there anything we can do that we haven't tried yet?

A:Proxy server

Ok, this question is quite old, so I'm going to take a stab at it!

I'm assuming that since you have Virgin wireless and going from 3 broadband that you are in the UK. I have zero experience with anything in the UK as b/c I'm in the US. Nevertheless, I'm going to try and assist you the best I can.

I'd say uninstall all Virgin wireless & 3 Broadband software that is on the computer. IF the virgin wireless connection is a regular wireless router in your home, then just simply connect to the wifi network is shows when you use the built in wifi software for windows, enter the wireless password & you should be good to go. IF the virgin wireless connection is a USB adapter, then reinstall the software accordingly, run the program and it should connect. As for this proxy window popping up, I'm really not sure why it's doing that, is it a windows proxy window or a window from the virgin wireless software?! either way, take a screenshot & post back.

Also post back specs on the system in question, info on the type of wireless connection you have from virgin wireless (USB, PCMCIA, wifi hotspot device, etc.).

Hope this helps, take care!

Dear All.
I have been stuck to a peculiar problem. Let me discuss the situation. I Have got the following configuration: Asus motherboard with Intel Dual Core processor, 2 GB of DDR2 RAM and one 80GB P-ATA and one 500 GB S-ATA HDD. I have installed Windows in the S-ATA HDD and decided to use the P-ATA HDD as additional storage drive. Now the problem is, sometimes the system cannot detect the P-ATA HDD, and sometimes when it detects it appears as Primary IDE Slave and in that case the SATA drive disappears from the boot priority drive list in bios setting. So the system cannot boot. Presently I am using my PC without connecting the P-ATA drive. But I want to use both of them. In this situation can u masters help me out of this problem? Thanks in advance........ Kabiraj.

Is the BIOS updated to it's latest firmware?
Alternative solution would be that you buy an pata HDD USB box and put the pata HDD in there.

Hi,

Restored laptop (Acer Aspire 5735, OS Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit) to factory settings a few months ago and noticed that there was a lot of space being used up on C: drive even though I hadn't started installing programs and putting files back on to laptop.

Used SpaceSniffer to see where all the space was being used up and it only found the C: drive to have size of 38.1GB even though it should have 69.6GB. Also ran WinDirStat and that also said C: drive had size 38.1GB.

Any suggestions on why there seems to be 31.5GB missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
thanks!
 

A:Missing hard drive space after restoring laptop to factory settings

"it should have 69.6GB"...
Is the drive 80GB unformatted? Did you format the drive when starting the restore? This is known as a "destructive" restore. If you didn't, it is possible that the old Vista files are still on the drive, along with the new files, taking up the space

Lately I found an old 75f monitor near the garbage and, as the good scavenger that I am, immediately took it under my possession. The problem with it is that every time the monitor turns off and on, be it with the OS's auto turn off monitor option or when I turn the computer on, the settings on it get scrambled up and I have to set the color settings and the screen deformations all over again.

You guys have any idea what might be causing this problem?

Also when i watch Youtube videos or other types of videos it also activates itself. Yes, I have tried to right click on the sound button and I have disabled my microphone. Sadly the problem is still there. I'm not sure what the problem could be when it says my microphone is disable but somehow it still activates when i watch videos or my internet pages are loading. Is there a way to fix this problem or a way to disable compleatly my microphone without disableing my Realtek Speakers?

You have to figure this out yourself by just boosting the CPU clock and Core voltage a notch at a time, until the system becomes unstable... Be aware that you may trash the motherboard if you go too far

Resolution/aspect ratio

Sounds to me that ether you need to change the resolution in the game or your aspect ratio to match your monitors.

A:Returned laptop to factory settings, yet strange problem getting worse

First thought is it sounds as if the 'left-click' is sticking or repeating very fast.
Does the same effect happen if you use the touch pad or a plugged-in USB mouse?
Can you go into Control panel, hardware, devices and printers, mouse, 'Pointer options' tab. Set the 'Set pointer speed' in the centre of the scale.
Then untick the box 'Enhance pointer precision'
In the 'Buttons' tab, click 'Restore defaults'
See if that makes any difference.

Well Dragon Age 2 is out and it supports DX11, this is the only game I have that uses DX11 to my knowledge and when its enabled my screen gets blurred in game. When its in Windowed mode it doesn't blur so I don't think its the game. I have a topic on the game's site open but support is..slow. I think is has something to do with the settings on my graphics card, I've read around and heard something about an A.I setting?

I'll give the link to my topic so if you want to read whats already been discussed then you can, also here are my specs:

I know the speakers work. help please
 

A:Resetting default audio settings?

You have probably made your headphones default, and turned off the speakers.
In the taskbar, near the clock, right-click on the speaker icon. Choose 'Playback devices'. In the new window, do you see 1 or 2 items? Speakers and below that Speaker/headphones. Right-click on what is showing, and in the list tick the options, 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'.
Now you should have 'Speakers' line showing, so right-click on it, and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the box, you see a drop-box that gives 2 options. Make it to be 'Use this device-enable'. Click OK. That should work.

Title pretty much says it all. I am a student and do a lot of work on my desktop. However, I take my laptop to school with me and would like it to transfer(sync) everything for me. I was thinking about writing a .bat file to do this for me, but it's been a long time since I've done any serious programming. Both computers are running windows 7 and connected via wireless network. I have a home group setup and I have not deeply looked through the sharing settings.
 

A:Wondering how to sync my documents from my desktop to laptop automatically

Checkout DropBox as a possible solution

Pluses:
> It's freeware. First 2GB storage is free (and if i recall reasonably priced after that)
> It'll both sync files between computers AND keep a copy on an available server should you need them from elsewhere

Make sure you use a PRIVATE Dropbox folder
Minuses:
> Files are kept on DropBox servers. PRIVATE folders should only be accessible by yourself with secure login but personally, i still don't put my "confidential" files on any public server just being "cyber" cautious

A:Are my settings safe for linked 2wire & netgear routers?

I think you'd be better setting up your AT&T router as a switch, and then running your Netgear router as your main router.

DHCP should be setup on the Netgear router, and then that used to assign IP addresses to your networked devices.

Your AT&T one should have wireless disabled, DHCP disabled, and be assigned a static IP address. You can then use a cat 5 ethernet cable to connect the two routers.

Most of all, I would be setting up the AT&T as a DMZ, because you want the extra security it provides by isolating the internet from your private network (Netgear router).

In your situation you want the AT&T router to act purely as a switch, and nothing more. Your Netgear router can handle everything else. You also need to be aware that setting up a DMZ is more for public network devices, e.g. for webservers, so you can place them in the "public" area for net access, and hide your private network (Netgear in your case) away from it. You do not want to be connecting any devices to your AT&T router if it has DMZ enabled.

Here is a good, brief read on what DMZ is.

A:Bluetooth device not found once Vista reset to factory settings?

Prior to resetiing? You mean you used the options to restore to factory condition? Then you almost certainly just need to re-install the driver for the blue-tooth device. Read the manual, or the website support for the laptop, where you will also find the necessary driver if you cant find it on the HDD or CD's that came with the PC

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if someone could possibly help with some question(s). I visit this board often for answers to questions and now I actually have one!

Basically, I have been asked to test three proxy servers as we recently discovered that of the 5, 3 of them could no longer reach the internet.

Could someone recommend or advise the best line of action to test be it with manual input or via 3rd party software if these servers are working correctly as proxy's, in terms of connecting to the internet?

Many thanks,
Rob
 

A:Testing proxy servers

that may be very difficult from here, as the specific proxy venders can have different rules in the configurations.

Recommend, you get all the products to be tested reinstalled on a test server using their default settings.
Add sufficient rules to only control access to a specific domain, eg google.com

Retest all.

Once that is working again,
you need to carefully add one action at a time to all products
retest
and iterate the development of the rule set until ALL have what you want.
Be sure to document any difficulties discovered along the way.

Then you are in a position to compare opertions, logging, ...

best wishes

Hello,

I am currently trying to fix an Acer laptop for a friend of mine and from what I can tell it looks as if her laptop continues to reset itself back to its original settings. For example, the desktop background goes back to the slandered picture, desktop icons that were once there are gone and programs have to be reinstalled. Neither of us have an exact cause for this issue, except she did mention how she had a router problem within the last week, but I wouldn't see how that would constantly be affecting the laptop itself when the router has been fixed. Every day the computer resets itself and its becoming a frustrating task for her and she's just about given up on it.

Is there, perhaps, a control I could change? Could it be a possible virus or malware issue?

Please help, I'm becoming a little desperate for help myself.

Hi all,

The first computer I connect to the wireless works fine, but I have had to self-assign IP addresses for other computers/devices using the 10.0.1.x spectrum. I originally thought it was a problem with my airport express. However, my roommate recently tried to plug directly to the modem and his computer did not get an IP address (he changed his settings to allow for an automatic assignment). Is this something I can fix on my own or do I have to call the ISP and maybe get the modem replaced? Or is it easy enough they can diagnose over the phone? Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What's affordable, how much are you looking to spend?

For a cheaper cooler I really like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Another good one is the Cooler Master Hyper 212.

Something to keep in mind is that overclocking is not going to free up CPU cycles. It'll make things run faster but if an application is currently taking 100% of your CPU, overclocking is not going to clear that up.

A:Router settings and IP address

Really need MFG/Model number of the modem AND the router (if you have separate devices),

but, get a command prompt (run->cmd) and enter ipconfig /all
the gateway address will be the IP address of the router.

launch your browser and enter http:// followed by the gateway address followed by a / (slash)

you should get the router login screen

when i turn off my pc without unplugging it everything works fine, but when the computer has been unplugged it asks me to re do all of my bios settings, could this be because of my motherboard or maybe an Bios Update?, Please help...
 

A:PC restarts BIOS settings when unplugged

Try replacing the CMOS battery on the motherboard. It will be a flat coin-like battery.

A:Computer automatically shutdown while playing

Check your system logs for clues as well before making any move, you can do that by going to Control Panel, Admin Tools, and Event Viewer; you should see some error logs over there about your freezes and perhaps crashes as well along with details and Even ID.

Okay, I am at wits end with this problem. I replaced the power supply with a larger one (Corsair 650W), replaced case with more fans, reseated CPU and added some more heat sink compound (Cleaned off old stuff). Could it be the video card is overheating where it is shutting the computer down? I have an 8800 GTS, which does got extremely hot (Where I have to put a house fan on the case?) Should I replace that graphics card for this motherboard combo that has on-board video on it?
 

A:Computer shutting down automatically

Did you change any other components out recently, or this just started?

A:Enabled LAN - Connection Failed

I've read the other sites replies back to you. Now let's do it this way..

1. Go here and follow this: method http://www.techspot.com/vb/post832889-2.html
2. On the laptop remove the drivers for wired and wireless then reboot the system
3. After windows restores the drivers
4. After doing step 1 attach the router back to the laptop using wired connection
5. Now setup the router with your cable modem
6. Test the connection and see if you connect?

Note if you don't connect there is a problem with the router and try updating the firmware for it. If you still have the same issue replace the router. Since wired connection is doing the same.

what does it mean when in the bios, it lists the primary ide master as "not detected"...........is this why I can't get windows xp to boot up after diassembling everything and installing it into another case?.......yet when i go into other areas of the bios, listing components, it shows my WD hard drive.....is there something for me to set on this ?............
 

A:BIOS settings question

yes, the primary hd needs to be detected in order for your OS to boot. make sure the hard drive is connected to the right header and make sure the boot order sequence is correct. you can also try setting the jumper on the hard drive to master.

Hello there! I wanted to ask a question.

Can the PC Speakers be damaged by increasing the Sample Rate and Bit Depth of the sound output?


My speakers are very old(~10 years or so) and my PC is quite new, and a friend of mine set the audio format to 24bit/192.000 Hz and the speakers stopped responding.
I have an on-board sound card (Realtec HD audio on Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P model). My speakers have not had any problems at all for the past 10 years, and just stopped working after setting the settings to that (24bit/192kHz)

Any ideas?


Thanks a lot!

PS: If you can scientifically support your opinion, it would be even greater, as I'm still arguing with my friend, but my field of expertice has nothing to do with computers or electronics


Thanks again for your time,
Regards,
Morkai
 

A:Can the Speakers be damaged from modifying the sound output settings?

The can be damaged if you "modify" by turning up the volume to excessive output... Many speakers will burn out very quickly.
But what you describe as modifying the Sample Rate and Bit Depth won't damage the speakers... But can sometimes damage some of the other sound electronics.

Hello, I want to use http://publicproxyservers.com to download via rapdishare beating the daily download limit, but I don't know how to do it, can someone explain please?

Any help appreciated.
Thanks
 

A:How do I set up a proxy?

Firefox: Tools->Options->Advanced->Network->Connection (Settings). Select Manual configuration and at HTTP proxy set one of the IPs (including ports) from http://publicproxyservers.com lists.

For IE8: Tools->Internet Options->Connections->LAN settings->Proxy server.

Edit: Don't expect to download with very high speed though. Most of those proxy servers work at almost dial-up speed.
Also remember to deactivate the proxy connection after the download for normal browsing as some proxyies are set to log your trafic and others may be set to steal personal data.

I just bought a new PC which was listed as being 7.1 sound enabled, but I only see 2 speaker output jacks on the back of the case

Is this right?

Do I need some sort of adaptor to connect up my speakers

My old 5.1 speaker system has three jacks, yellow black and green, on the back of the pc there is a green input, and a blue input, and a black for a microphone

Hi,

I have a problem with my Toshiba Laptop keyboard. Satellite A200-192

It starts typing Z or / or \ by itself. Sometimes it is ZZZZZZ (tens of Z) of \\\\\\\ (tens of \). For example if I try to type "Hello" it will type as "Hezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzlzzzzzzzzzlzzzo".

Sometimes the up arrow or down arrow or pagedown is pressed continously.

I have Norton Antivirus. I have run 10-20 antivirus, spyware and Malware tools. They could not find anything.

In a forum they said that this might be a Keyboard hardware problem. The KEYBOARD is NOW ultimately shutdow....Presently i am using a external keyboard, but now and then the right click of the mouse is activated....

Can you please let me know what should be done?
 

A:Keyboard toshiba not working and right click of mouse activated automatically

A worn out or damaged internal pointing device (mouse pad) could also be causing the keyboard problem. This can be easily fixed by most any laptop repair center
