Group Policy Applies Policy EXCEPT for 1 Setting!

Q: Group Policy Applies Policy EXCEPT for 1 Setting!

Hi all!

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit on a domain

I've NEVER seen this before and I cant figure it out.

I have a group policy set on an OU named LAPTOPS. The policy gets applied, however the User Config\Windows Setting\Scripts\Logon DOES NOT. When you run the GPRESULTS on the laptop, I see the policy settings being applied EXCEPT for the LOGON script. Its not there. I dont see any errors and cant figure out why Windows would ignore this one setting in the policy but apply the rest. I've tried deleting and recreating the policy but that does not work. Also made sure I did a GPUPDATE /FORCE

Thanks in advance!

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.)

Quick question and I believe the answer is NO. If you have a PC with one drive where OS is already running and configured, can you add another identical drive and configure RAID 1 without having to reinstall or reformat anything?


A:Setting up RAID 1 on already running OS drive

Hey there, pioneerx01!

Unfortunately, you can't convert a single drive into a RAID array without data loss. At least one sector will be overwritten, which will cause problems because the file system and partition information will not be correct anymore. This will lead to a lot of annoying notifications and very unpleasant problems.
However, I believe there's a chance to create RAID arrays while keeping the data but I'd strongly advise against it.
The best way to deal with this is the safe way - back up your data and properly create the RAID 1 array.

Hope this helps.

OK I am trying to set up a 6 monitor eyefinity setup using two r9 290x GPU. I want to cross fire the GPU s and then plug 3 of the monitors into 3 of the 4 ports that are on the GPU and then plug the other 3 in via a port hub utilizing the last plug in on the gpu. My knowledge is limited so I have questions regarding this method. For one would this even work? 2. Would I be able to max out most games using this method? 3. Is there an easier way to do this?

Let me put it this way, it can work as stated on AMD's website using a multi DP output hub.

To answer the second question though is a no you would not most likely be able to max out most games in this methodology. You will probably be able to run a game like Tomb Raider for instance at high settings but maxing out with 6 displays is pushing it.

The easiest way to do this is the only way...Basically buy the 3 way DP hub, hook up your monitors with adapters to whatever output method your choosing, then hookup the rest.

A colleague at work would like to set up either a SHN or a SBN. What is the best way to go about this? Would it be best to be safe to be cloud based? What equipment is needed etc...?

This will take some discussing, so please ask any questions you need. The intention would be for two/three people to access the information on the network initially. A printer will be shared on the network, allowing scan to email. Laptops would be used to access the network from external sites, this is why I'm thinking of going the cloud based route, so they can log on and access the server from anywhere in the world...

Any help/guidance is appreciated.
Thank You!

A:Setting up a small home/business network

Yes, you can consider the Cloud as a solution for access, BUT . . .
it also brings with it issues like:

You should start reading about these issues before committing to this solution.

One alternative would be a NAS device connected to your router. Putting your modem, router and NAS on a UPS power system would allow (with proper configuration) external access and you have total control, of all of the issues above.

I am pretty much a novice with regards to networking. We recently built a new house and have wired it with cat 5e wire. I want to share my windstream internet connection over the network as well as be able to share files and use a drobo storage unit. I have a windstream router an a gigabit network switch. Will connecting a direct wire from the modem to the switch allow all the computers to gain access to the internet.

A:Setting Up a Gigabit Network

Correct - - everything attach to the router or a switch hung off of it will be "in the same subnet" as there is only one router. Wifi and wired will look the same to all users and everyone can "play" at the same time

Hello all,

I need help to set up fans because I'm new with this. My motherboard is Biostar a780l3l and has a SYS_FAN1. Do I put one fan there? Do I need just one fan or more? My case has 3 spots to put fans on, 2 on the side and one from behind.
Or do I put one fan in the motherboard and other 2 in the PSU?
If I only need one fan do I put it in the motherboard or PSU?
I'll upload my dxdiag just in case.

A:Help with setting up Fans

It does not really matter how or where you hook fans up unless you want to be able to control the speeds via the motherboard or if the fans have built in fan controllers (Like switches on them for high and low).

The only spot you definintly need hooked up (Unless your using a fan controller) is the CPU fan one since im assuming your not using a fan controller. IMO, you should hook up to the motherboard because the system will decide on fan speeds for you.

A:Having trouble setting resolution on new widescreen monitor

Hmm; focus on getting the SYSTEM to display correctly first and then fuss with videos last.

My laptop is running at 1366-768 (recommended) for my wide screen display. I would presume your list of resolutions shown do not include 1366-768 (that's dependent upon the video driver + the monitor), so first attempt to get an updated driver for your video adaptor.

Interesting question: I'm a PC tech that often provides on-site service. Sometimes I need to hook up two PC's at once but the customer only has one monitor.

I have a portable 7" digital TV. Very handy. It sure would be great if I could bring it with me on jobs and hook a PC up to it. Using an adapter, I can plug a VGA cable into the 1/4" "Video In" plug on the side, but the resolution is only 480x234 and I don't think Windows can support such a low resolution natively.

Anyone know of a way I can make this idea work?

Hello, I think I'm experiencing a NAT networking problem, as most games I play complain that my NAT is moderate, or sometimes strict. I've researched this and found out it may be a Double NAT problem.

I've also researched two solutions for this: Disable NAT and DCHP on either the modem or router, or set up a PPPoE connection between the two. Can someone tell me which one is the easiest to do and how to do it?

Router: Linksys E3200 w/ Cisco

Modem: Motorola SB5102

Other Info: This IS a broadband connection, and I believe it is a DSL or Cable setup. I also know how to access the router settings, and how to disable NAT and DCHP. However, I do not know how to connect to the modem (I do know the default IP for it) and don't know how to perform a PPPoE connection, as this would be my first time.

PPPoE is for DSL connections... Go to the router and modem websites and download the instructions from there. It will explain how to connect and access the router

I have a 16gb (4x4gb) kit of GSKill Ripjaws Z arriving tomorrow and need to enter the timings manually for them to work properly on my P9X79 Pro motherboard. How do I go about doing this?

The kit is rated for 1.50v at 9-9-9-24. Do I have to enter correct BCLCK and CPU ratio values, as well? Pretty much everything is on auto default right now with my DDR3 1333 RAM kit.

Can anyone out there please help me?


A:Help setting RAM timings on mobo

Under "memory frequency" you should see a list of speeds you can select, these correspond to the various FSB/RAM ratios. Pick the one that's suitable for your RAM. If you scroll down you should see the DRAM voltage and timings, just type in the values.

Not sure about SB-E but for SB the BCLK doesn't budge... not even by a few Mhz so you're better off leaving that alone at 100Mhz and using the CPU multiplier to overclock that 3930K. So to run your RAM at its rated 1600Mhz your FSB/RAM ratio would be 1:16.

hey all,

I've decided on upgrading to a water cooling system for my CPU, and two GPU's (most probably a set of 680's), curently have two 560 Ti's, and a i5-2500k CPU

I'm not sure a dual loop is the best solution or a single loop with two radiators and a decent pump. EKWB have some pretty decent stuff so I'll be getting most components from them.
I've done a quick picture of the setup I was thinking of for a single loop. I'll be setting it up in either a Corsair 800d or 650d case, with the 800d obviously having different radiators.

Anyone know if this is a good way to go for a setup like this?

Hi there.

Need some help as am learning how to fix things.

Am trying to restablish an older computer after its original motherboard had problems. I purchased a 2nd hand board (details below), and am having problems with its display. Fans are spinning, power is working etc, but no visual response. No beeping can be heard.

I havent bothered putting in the hard drive yet, its blank, and unused anyway, and im trying to establish whether the basics will work. E.g. Booting into BIOS options.

The screen does not respond, and I have now tried 3 different screens to double check. The Motherboard has built in graphics, so to test if the built in card is shagged, I plugged a working graphics card in and still nothing.

Any tips?

CPU - AMD Anthlon 64bit
MB - MSI K9NBPM2-FID (contains inbuilt Graphics card)
GC - Geoforce 7600 GT

A:No display when setting up older computer

So you are trying to test your pc in a basic state, to prove the motherboard is stable.
If the m'board has built-in (integrated) graphics, normally a good guide to that, is the blue VGA socket on the board. To be sure the pc is using that output, the usual way is to;
1) Enable integrated graphic option in the BIOS, and;
2) Remove any graphic cards from either AGP or PCI-E slots.
That should force the pc to use the integrated graphics, via the VGA socket.
Hope that helps.

I use firefox and my proxy settings were changed, so under configure proxies to access the internet, i checked No proxy, since that is the default option when i don't use a proxy but after clicking ok, ok and restarting

Ok so his power turned off randomly in his house because of some faulty kitchen appliance.

His computer started in safe mode and he thought it was broken so he started messing with services/startup.

Now he has no internet because in the network connections folder it says windows can't display any adapters and he doesn't know what he's done.

His internet in the house is still working because he has access on his blackberry it's just purely the access on his computer.

I'm nowhere near him and I'm on W7 not XP like he is and I can't really fix his problem but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what he might have done?

In services I told him to check that Network Connections 'Netman' service was on but don't know what else to say.

Thanks for any help you can provide guys!

May i know the following hardware can functioning well?

Motherboard: Asus P7H55-M
CPU : Intel Pentium Core i3 540
graphic card: ATI HD5450
PSU : Elite360 (400W)
RAM : 2 GB of DDR3

A:Setting up a new PC

The mobo, CPU, and graphics card should all work well together.

For the mobo though, I think you should consider getting one with UBS 3.0 built in to speed up doing quick USB backups and other USB functrions.

The HD5450 is a good HTPC card for its price range and is recommended at that price here:
But note its poor performance for gaming - even for light gaming. What are your intended uses?

The power supply I could find little about, but know it is not a strong brand. Power supplies are not a place to scrimp on a system - keep in mind that it is the electricity powering the whole system - like buying a nice car with a great style, a nice interior, good drive train and handling, then skimping on the engine.

400 watt is more than enough to power your system and allow for a little expansion later - but not a real serious gaming video card. This Antec Basiq BP430 430W at $30 after rebate would be acceptable:

Although the Antec Earthwatts Green 430w at $45 after rebate would be better:

Both will still allow only a limited video card upgrade later. They will allow a step up to a decent mainstream gaming card but not a powerful gaming card. To keep that option open you need to move up to a 500w or greater PSU.

For only a little more, $50 after rebate and $6 shipping, you could get this excellent 500w PSU:
CORSAIR Builder Series CMPSU-500CX 500W

For the memory, you need to identify the make and model to receive a review of it. Some DDR3 will work in your system and some will not.

Hi everyone,

Today I was asked to setup a small network for a classroom. I need to network 4 computers and share a single printer. They also need Internet access (this is where it gets tricky for me).

I was thinking a simple switch would do the job (sharing the printer and networking the machines), but what about the Internet? A single UTP cable coming from another classroom brings the Internet here (this cable is connected to a 48-port switch, which is connected to a 2 wire modem/router provided by the ISP).

So do you think I could just use that cable, connect it to the switch and configure it to share the Internet? I hope I explained this good enough

Thanks =)

A:Setting up a wired sub-LAN

let's try to get a map of what you have:

isp --- modem/router---48port.switch-->classrooms
and one of the 48 comes to you, right?

you have ONE port on the switch, but need four systems to share it. That will require your
modem/router to support more that 48 connections, ie the DHCP service it provides needs more that 48 addresses.

The for-sure solution is to take

this will isolate your classroom from the other 47 connections but still allow Internet connectivity.

Attach your printer to ONE of your four systems and use Print/File Sharing for your class use. (the other classrooms will not see you at all.)

I bought a set of Jamo A 102 5.1 speakers thinking that it would set up out of the box. I was unaware that I may need to buy something else to make them operate, but the manual is only pictures, probably to make up for multiple languages. I've tried searching for english manuals and different forums before coming here. The speakers uses the copper speaker wires which isn't included for some reason. The pictures on the manual seems to indicate that the speakers hooks up to some type of AV receiver. If possible, I would like the speakers to also work with my computer as well as my television set. I'm sure there's a way to do this. Is anyone familiar with this?

My wife is not interested in learning how not to avoid malware and principally uses an WXP Home computer, but she also does banking on her Apple Mac Mini. I would like to isolate the Mac Mini and my linux computer from the wired/wifi network that we now use.Click to expand...

So the isolation is to protect you from possible infections from her? The Mac has
a firewall too and there aren't too many direct attacks on Macs --
but yes you can isolate it from the others

I was thinking about putting a D-Link DI-604 router behind one of the wired ports on the existing Zyxel P330W v2 wifi router. The idea is that wife, kids, and guests can browse, hopefully not getting infected, but in any case 'isolated' (?) from the D-Link network behind.Click to expand...

so it would look like


modem--Zyxel (x.y.1.1)--- wired systemes
+--- (x.y.1.2) DI-604 (x.y.2.1) .... WiFi connections @ x.y.2.*

I can imagine the possiblity a sniffer getting installed on the Zyxel network which might then be able to monitor traffic from/to the D-Link network as it passes through the Zyxel. Would such a sniffer be able to monitor the Zyxel traffic or is the latter encrypted or otherwise unsniffable as it leaves the D-Link and passes through the Zyxel?Click to expand...

Yes a sniffer on the Zyxel will see ALL traffic as it is the highest level router but only see the tcp header info, not the payload of every packet due to encryption

Alternatively, is there a way for the two routers to sit side by side and somehow share the DSL connection without being reachable by the other,Click to expand...

The secret is the Default Gateway. Unless there is a specific route to force
output to a specific subnet, all traffic flows upward thru the Default Gateway.
The Zyxel attached systems will flow ONLY up to the ISP.
The DI-604 attached devices will flow Up to the Zyxel. Any software attempting
to 'probe for other systems' could discover systems attached to it but not see them
as easily as looking for File Shares (which is the only access that could be acquired anyway).

If you FLIP the positions of the router, eg Modem--Di-604--Zyxel, then the WiFi system would never reach the Zyxel systems.

say if a switch sat in front of the routers (don't know if a switch with divide traffic in this way or not)Click to expand...


So, are either of these a good approach and if not, why? TIAClick to expand...

your public modem/router address
a port forward to the system's LAN address
your system's firewall to allow incoming traffic on the required port

Hey, my Dad recently purchased a Western Digital Caviar 640gb hard drive in order to boost the storage on his computer (which he needs due to all of the games that I've installed on it over the years ). The motherboard that he is using is an Abit AV8 3rd Eye Motherboard, which supposedly has a maximum transfer rate over SATA of 1.5 gb/s. However, I think that the default transfer rate for the hard drive is 3.0 gb/s, so the computer has not been able to detect the drive.
Is there any way that I could change the transfer rate of the drive to 1.5 gb/s? Maybe I could hook it up to my other computer (which is 3.0 gb/s compatible) and install some drivers that would allow me to control the transfer rate?

A:Problem setting up ad-hoc wireless internet sharing

If you share the connection from the ADSL card to the wireless NIC card, and then create an ad-hoc network from the wireless NIC card, then theoretically that should work. Try connecting to the laptop from your desktop, and then ping the laptop to see if it's there.

OS: Xubuntu 9.04

HDD1 WD20Gig - system
HDD2 Seagate20Gig - ext3 filesystem

The Gparted partition tool sees both drives (how I formatted the Seagate) but I just don't know how to setup to use the thing! (Like a windows layout how you can casually go into the drive to store / use files).

Any advice guys?

A:Having trouble setting up a second HDD


Have you assigned the 1st (system) hdd to be a Master-drive, and the second to be cable-select or slave?

If you haven't, take a look at this picture:
Click to Maximize

On top of the drive is a sticker, like the one on the picture, and on the sticker is explained how to insert the 2-pin block to assign a drive to be a Master, slave or cable-select drive.

Make sure the drive with your OS installed on it is assigned Master, and the second drive is assigned either slave or cable-select.

Try that

Okay, here we go....

I'm setting up 2 hard drives (obviously).
I would like to tie them together, with the first drive being my primary for all my computing needs
...and, with the second drive dedicated to data and data storage and recovery points (if needed)

Each one is 80 gigs

A:Setting up 2 hard drives

I don't see that you have a problem. Can you not just load them both into a single case?

What IS the problem? If it's data, you'll have to remember to save to the second drive. Set each app's save location or physically move the data (by dragging the icons).

Recovery would be harder. After setting recovery dates you would have to copy the user and registry files to the second disk.

Or if you have XP, right click My Computer, select Properties. Select the Tools tab and the backup button. A wizard will start and walk you thru the process.

hi Saljr,
there DDR part stands for double data rate. your memory accesses two 533Mhz channels, and i use that term generically, and has the effect of running at 1066mhz 533 x 2 = 1066, as for 3dMark thats just a glitch its reading off the mother board, default setting. so yeah your ram is fine

A:Old resolution setting on a game crashed my computer, and new monitor shows nothing

I'd shut down and reseat the video card, all the monitor swapping may have caused it to become unseated.

After doing that, are you getting anything to display on screen at all (like the POST). If so, you should be about fixed. Just before Windows begins to load start tapping F8, then you'll get the boot menu where most people then go into Safe Mode. Do not go into safe mode, choose VGA mode. Windows will then boot normally, just with a crap resolution. But the correct drivers and everything should be loaded, so then you just set the resolution to what you want and you are fixed.

The battery on the motherboard is probably dead. It's a coin-shaped and -sized silver metal lump on your computer's motherboard. Pry it out (make sure the computer is off and make sure you don't break anything) and take it to your local electronics/computer/watch store. They should be able to give you a replacement.

I just bought a pair of 1GB G.Skill RAM modules for my system but I noticed something that doesn't seem right to me. I installed the new sticks and Windows booted fine. However, when I launched CPU-Z my timings were not what they were supposed to be. These sticks are rated at 5-5-5-15 and CPU-Z read 5-5-5-31.

Is this just because they are running in dual channel mode or is the motherboard setting the wrong timings? I have the command rate set at 2T and my FSB/DRAM ratio is 2:3. This just doesn't seem right to me and I'd like to know why this is happening. The RAM is also running on 1.8v opposed to the 2.0v that is displayed on the label with the correct timings. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks in advance.

A:Mobo Setting Incorrect Timings?

I would assume that your motherboard is just setting up slower default values for RAM that doesn't quite have as tight timings and are not made for operation at 2.0v. This is just a precaution, if the bios set the RAM too fast, some RAM might not be able to pull it off and you wouldn't be able to boot up.

I don't think dual channel mode really makes a difference, you can go ahead into your BIOS and set the timings to 5 - 5 - 5 - 15, but you will probably also have to up the voltage too. Note that 1T is faster than 2T.

Its always a good idea to know how to reset your motherboard just in case something bad happens and you can't boot into the BIOS.

A:Setting up high speed and wireless network

wow, still on dial up all this time?

Am not sure if true for all cable, but i can tell you from what i know a "splitter" is connected to the incoming cable to split the data from the TV stuff. so you have a single connector but will end up with two wires.

So you'd have
incoming cable <Splitter> Data only cable <Choices> Computer

where Choices could be

1) just a cable modem, or
2) cable modem to a router , or
3)Combination modem/router device

With just one computer you wouldn't need router for its connection sharing but don't know if needed for other reasons

Also, you should check and see what the cable company will charge you for cable modem monthly rental vs. what it costs to just buy your own of whatever (assuming you know what you need)

e.g. I think RCN was gonna charge $5/month when i first got my cable (their fee since dropped to $3/month). But i bought my own for about $60 or so... like 5 or more years ago.. so good to figure out what works for you

Well, you can install Windows to your external USB Hard Drive (requires the USB Drivers on bootup so forth).

But if you plug it into another computer it won't start it.

You have to search the Linux sites for the brand and version you installed, or search the website of the brand and model of Ethernet/cable modem you installed to get the correct driver.
There are no Linux drivers for some models of Network or Cable Modems... So you may have to buy a new one that you know has Linux drivers available.

Thank you for reading this as I've never encounter this before. I have two monitors; a Viewsonic (Max Resolution 1024 x 768) and a 23 inch Apple Cinema (Max Resolution 1920 x 1200). The apple had a little wierd issue for a while so I switched to the Viewsonic and set the resolution to the optimum setting, then somehow the Apple magically fixes itself so I went back and hook it up today, here is where the issue is. I set it to 1920 x 1200 under Properties, but it'd went back to 1024 x 768 after each restart, somehow it's not saving my settings at all. I went to Window Update to see if there's a driver that I need to install, but found nothing. Anyone got any ideas? By the way, I'm using a Quadro FX1100 if that's any help on solving this. Thank you.

A:Monitor went back to old setting after each restart

Just because a new driver didn't show up on Windows Update doesn't mean there isn't one. Go to Nvidia's website for the most recent driver for your card. It's not so much you necessarily need the newest driver but it might be that you are having a problem with your current driver (maybe corrupted or something). So as long as you are reinstalling your graphics driver, might as well get the most recent. Don't forget to go to Add and Remove Programs to uninstall the old driver first.
