The HDMI 1 and HDMI 2 ports are not recognizing the HP Pavilion 27xw 27-inch IPS LED monitor when I plug it in. I have installed the software that came with the monitor and also updated my PC. Any help that would allow me to use multiple displays would be highly appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
I am purchasing a MSI GTX 960 Gaming 4G GPU, and I think it has capablilities for 4 monitors to be displayed as a single desktop. If this is true, what cables should I get, and any ideas for decent cheap monitors? My plan is to have three monitors side by side as a single entity, and a fourth on the side as a reference screen (I would prefer this one to be rather small, like 6-8 inch)
You should count a number of output ports in your system first. Found a good guide on this topic: http://www.techradar.com/news/compu...e-complete-guide-to-multiple-monitors-1074313
I have a Shuttle-PC with an i5 processor and 16gb of memory. The system has two Planar 27 in. Monitors. I periodically (maybe three times a week) have the video go crazy (see photo) and the system locks up. The only way to get out of this is to reboot. Does anyone recognize the problem and have suggestions on what to do?
Take a look at inside your computer, is it dusty. Sounds like your video card is getting to hot. this can be caused by dust or even the thermal grease could dried out.
Just as 4K displays were becoming more affordable and widespread, it seems as though industry standards groups are preparing to up the stakes again. Apple's 5K iMac still isn't a high enough resolution for the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA),...
it is likely that we will see 8K TVs become more readily available before 8K computers do.Click to expand...
It is likely the only reason to have an 8K computer would be to use an 8K TV as the display.
How can I setup multiple monitor in Eyefinity?
My Card is Sapphire Dual-X R9 270x 2GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...DUAL-X_R9_270X_2GB-_-9SIA2RY1DG6402-_-Product I Have 2
Connections are I have 2 Monitors connected on 1 Card then 1 Monitor for the other
All of it are in DVI
Problem is in Eyefinity I don't know how to setup for it to be only one whole desktop
I would check this thread out: http://goo.gl/4z2Azv
I recently just built a gaming PC with my friend I have installed all of the drivers for the GPU from the installation disk it came displays dark. Build. glitches goes then New problem? Monitor GPU with Windows has been updated fully also besides three updates that continue to fail They are just security updates they may or may not be the problem The PC runs fine and the display will show New Build. Monitor displays glitches then goes dark. GPU problem? clear and crisp for about half an hour until New Build. Monitor displays glitches then goes dark. GPU problem? glitches will start to appear in the screen and next the monitor will appear black The light is still on and the PC is still running whatever it was last I know this because it did it during a driver installation and after I waited an hour and then restarted the PC the driver install was done Often after I restart the PC nothing will show up at all If I wait awhile and get lucky it will boot up normal The glitches happen most often when I try to run a game The mentioned updates continue to fail and idk why I have ran a troubleshoot for the PC as well and the it says no driver can be found for the PCI Simple Communications Controller After I choose to search for the driver online or on my computer it says no driver found During a Windows Update failure I got another error message concerning my graphics driver saying a problem could ve occurred because a graphics driver is missing Yet the program GPU Tweak that was installed with the disk says that everything s up-to-date When I try to update manually it says the sam thing This computer was not expensive I can post exact specs when I can get back into it and maybe some pics Specs Not listed is a terabyte of memory blu-ray burner and and an msi Z -G Gaming motherboard I have a strong internet connection and am using a DVI port for the monitor I have ruled out the monitor as the problem Before I said the PC was NOT expensive I meant NOT cheap I spent around on the parts nbsp
Looking at the screen shot of GPU-Z it appears you are running a AMD Catalyst 13.8 BETA drivers. I would suggest downloading the latest drivers from AMD: AMD Catalyst Omega Drivers 14.12. Then go into your control panel and completely uninstall the amd catalyst from your computer. Once completed, you may need to reboot the computer. After reboot, install the newest drivers from the link I posted above. Do so and then try again to produce same error results. Let us know if it works or not so we can try other options, or resolve the issue.
I am creating a small demo software wherein 4 simple mono-audio speakers need to be connected to my laptop, the main program, written in Java will play audio from one of the speakers depending on the input cue.
How do I go about achieving this? Any tips, hints most appreciated.
First, the laptop audio is not a home sound system and can be easily overloaded with what you are attempting - - don't drive this at high output volumes!
this will show the wiring to get all 4 with output at the same time.
The speakers in parallel like this create a load 4x heavier than just one speaker.
Get 8ohm speakers like these http://www.radioshack.com/8-ohm-mini-speaker/2730092.html
which will reduce the load to only 2x.
The red circles are individual volume controls. Place a toggle switch between the controls and the speakers and you can play 1, 1+2, 1+2+3 or all four.
So... like most of world my family lives online. Having found that ISP pricing in Alaska is horrendously expensive, I want to find a solution that I can create 4 SSIDs, one for each of my three kids (ages 12, 14, &16) and one for me and my wife, and place a data cap on each SSID so that I can't be hit up with the bills that come with overages. I figure with individual SSIDs they can use what ever device they have with out having to detirmine MAC addresses or IPs used or any of that other stuff.
I would like to have just one router be able to accomplish this. I have an older router, an Apple Time Capsule I bought about 6 years ago, but as I don't use Macintosh computers any more, I would be happy to buy a new router and get it set up to manage this dilema.
Any Advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Our ISP recently updated their hard ware to work with the Sprint network Note our ISP is not Sprint but the local phone company Our Hardware Internet DSL highest speed available Modem Comtrend ISP provides Router Belkin N Computer yr old Dell running XP - service pac - wired connection Kindle Fire first edition no HD etc - wireless connection Xbox - wireless connection Issues Xbox - went from constantly bumped from Xbox Live game by losing internet connection to not being able to enter a game at all Kindle - went from occasional quot network error message during online tasks to having to restart download multiple times or refresh page for most any or all online tasks Computer - have to click refresh to get most any page to load after the home page What we ve tried so far I have recently cleared the cache on both the computer and Kindle XBox s new security measures have been met My questions Do any or all multiple issues devices Multiple over of these issues seem to be related Is there a piece of equipment or something we may be missing to make all of these things work I am a networking novice Who should I call to get these issues corrected my ISP or a tech service Note if I start with the ISP and they do not find an issue I have to pay for the call nbsp
First. You should try to NOT use a wireless connection for any type of gaming: PC, Mac, Console, etc. If you can hard wire the xbox you'll be waaay better off than using wireless.
Now... Yes, the issues could be related - there maybe an issue with the Belkin N router. I'd try to first reset the Belkin router to default settings, check on manufacturer website for instructions how, most routers you can press a "reset" button w/ a paperclip or ball point pen. Reconfigure the Belkin router, recreate the wireless network and see how everything works. If you are still having issues, humor me and connect the Dell directly to the DSL modem, bypassing Belkin router. See if you still have connection issues, if you do then it could be the DSL modem that is the problem and call your ISP to replace. If you don't have same issues then it's most likely an issue with the Belkin router. Replace it. Don't buy the dirt cheapest router at the store, but you most likely don't need the most expensive one either. Find a good middle ground router, ask sales associate to assist you accordingly.
Post back, Hope this helps!!

Hey Mark. I would connect to the Net by cable and allow it to get any OS updates and/or driver updates before I change any settings.While online,try to connect wirelessly to see if it finds any updates quicker.
I'm needing some information that is extremely hard to come by.
The 740m in the HP Envy 17t-j000, does anyone know, or does anyone know WHERE to look (Google failed me, or I failed Google!) to find out whether it needs ACTIVE displayport -> HDMI adapters?
I question this because I know the 57xx series from ATI required active. The card only supported 1 RAMDAC signal (or something?) and the Nvidia's tech seems different. According to HP support, passive will work fine. I need to have the adapters ordered ASAP, but I do not want to order the incorrect ones.
Any assistance is appreciated.
So, I recently bought an Asus UX31a running windows 8(in may) and it was working perfectly until a couple months ago. The only browser that works is internet explorer, which is disgusting (I miss Google Chrome) and several programs such as Adobe reader, Google drive, steam and visual studio either lag for about 5 mins each whenever I want to use them (or click something in them), or I have to close them with the task manager because they aren't responding...(This includes when I want to open pdf documents in internet explorer.
I've run several virus checks with ESET smart security which hasn't ever found any viruses...
It would be a great help if anybody could help me find what the problem is.
Try using a new Windows Restore point. This may not work because of "it was working perfectly until a couple months ago"... It is most likely caused from a stubborn malware infection other than a virus
When I bought this computer it had windows 7 on it. it ran everything lag/shutter free. I have since upgraded to windows 8 then to 8.1. The problem is the audio and video noticeably lags/shutters. As if the entire computer is pausing. I have talked to HP tech support and they only reinstalled the drivers. All drivers are current. I am fairly sure it has something to do with the HD4k graphics but I do not know for sure. I was hoping the 8.1 would resolve the problem but it has not. I have this problem whenever I watch videos (on the internet or from file) and when I play World of tanks. Any help would be great
I seen similar comments re "since upgrading to Win/8" and (imo) think the drivers are not 'fully compatible' with the new system.

Sounds like we have the same thing going on. Does your screen have any windows poop up? mine does.
See the description in full on the Cisco.com/security site
I read about this yesterday. This is a big exploit and needs to be fixed. Too bad there are too many newbies that wont know how to update the firmware or arent even aware of this issue.
Guys I ask this just out of curiosity what is the pros and cons of more than one monitors.Does they have any uses than gaming?thanks
Yes. I have a two monitor set up, (with an "extended desktop")
One I have in portrait, the other in landscape.
These are primarily for desktop publishing purposes.
Sometimes I want to view my work one way, sometimes the other.
I had always wondered how anyone would like it for gaming.
Seems to me the movement between screens, and breaks in field of vision could be issues.
But, I am not a gamer, so what would I know.
Cons? for me?
Holding my neck / head in one position for extended periods ,
other than a centered/neutral position,
can result in some neck pain.
Solution is to compensate by how I position myself,
and using the dual monitor stand's full ability to tilt, swivel etc.
Younger persons may not notice the issue as much.
I cannot imagine how I would use a set up with more than two monitors though.
This stand has been excellent for my purposes.
They also make a four monitor (2x2) version,
and I have seen stands where you can mount 3 monitors side by side.
By the way this set up is used alternately with..
a) Dell Vostro 3550 Laptop (has an i3 processor, and both HDMI and VGA out)
b) On board graphics with a Gigabye GA-Z77X-UD5H (has two HDMI, plus DVI, plus VGA)
So, no fancy graphics card setups here!
Hello I am currently working as the IT for this clinic and other clinics as well We are all networked in together despite being miles apart from one another We currently have an older computer running XP as a file server so certain files can be accessed and updated from any of these clinics The problem is that there can only be users accessing it at once We have grown just offices Multiple in the short time I have been here This computer was setup before I was hired on We are now in need another computer to give us the same functions Most of our computers now are on Windows bit There are still plenty Xp computers Multiple offices as well I am wondering how to get a Windows computer to host files in the same way I Multiple offices can get it to where this entire building can access this public folder but none of the other clinics can Are ip setup is like this x--- x The second to last digit represents the office There will be offices in Multiple offices all that will need access Any ideas how to make it so all offices can reach this folder P S I can dig up an Xp computer if it will be easier nbsp
You are still going to be limited on the number of simultaneous connections... I would personally put a linux smb server in place of that current file server if someone has the skill to set one up and manage it (hint: you).
Morning all The audio jack on my tablet has stopped working which doesn t bother me too much because I ve got some bluetooth headphones which I use to listen to my music on there However I ve got a huge flight coming up soon with my partner and there s loads of TV shows I have on it that we d ideally want to watch and listen to together If only my audio Multiple headphones bluetooth out worked I could just put a headphone splitter into it But I Multiple bluetooth headphones m trying to investigate whether you can get a bluetooth receiver like this http www amazon co uk JUSTOP-BTR -Bluetooth-Wireless-Universal dp B NDDEVQ So that receiver will pick up the audio then pass the audio into something like this http www amazon co uk Belkin-BKF s electronics amp ie UTF amp qid amp sr - Which I can then plug two sets of headphones into and bingo we can both watch and listen to the same thing on my tablet on the plane Would that work Or have I created a ludicrously complicated way of achieving this when a much simpler multi-bluetooth audio out system exists In a nutshell my question is this What s the easiest way get audio to two sets of headphones from one tablet if the audio out plug doesn t work nbsp
I dont think your bluetooth audio adapter is able to drive 2 headphones at reasonable volume level. unless, you get a small headphone amplifier. but then you'll have 3 devices connected and I think it's not worth the hassle. the amplifier itself is cheap, look for something like fiio e3. I have it and it should cost less than 10 bucks.
a single alkaline AAA battery could last for about 10h on my heavy usage. but im not sure if the bluetooth adapter could do the same.
bluetooth adapter -> fiio e3 -> 2way splitter
actually this way, it wouldnt be too much of a hassle. the 3.5mm jack of the bluetooth can be plugged directly into the fiio e3 as well as the 2way splitter.
If my video card has 1 HDMI port and another port (Not sure which one, DVI or VGA) am I able to hookup two monitors using each of those ports? Or must I have both monitors be connected through HDMI or VGA/DVI?
What video card is it? If it's got 2 outputs then it should mean you can just plug one monitor into each.
Hi folks I m new here and not greatly technically minded My Acer Aspire Z laptop has been acting strange for a few days running Windows btw Some of the issues are even happening right now ie as I type the cursor will sometimes restart a new line as if I ve pressed the Return button Acer apps is Laptop and and more opens multiple corrupted This is esp bad in emails and Facebook and often the cursor flies down miles Acer Laptop is corrupted and opens multiple apps and more making it a pain to get back to where I was That s not all though There s a horrible beeping noise when I start up the laptop first thing It goes after I press one of the F buttons The worst though is when I try to open up some app on my desktop and sometimes the laptop goes crazy and opens up multiple other apps software There have been instances where there are dozens of the same pages opening I have McAfee Internet Security and have run Malwarebytes and Spybot but problem is still there Is this a hardware problem do Acer Laptop is corrupted and opens multiple apps and more you think I m not great at techie Acer Laptop is corrupted and opens multiple apps and more speak so please go easy with me but I d be grateful for any advice Cheers David nbsp
UNless someone else has a better idea, how old is this computer & is it still under warranty? If so, I'd get a hold of the where you bought it & get it checked out. IF you don't & have "other" work done on it, it could VOID the warranty.
I m just dipping a toe into multi-monitor use and have some questions I using monitors time multiple First have a inch and a inch monitor at the moment have another and to use if need be later I have a ATI card I have both monitors plugged into the video card I ve noticed when I extend the desktop to both screens I have some quot flickering quot on the second inch monitor Almost like its trying to adjust itself to something automatically It only flickers when I scroll the mouse wheel up and down First time using multiple monitors a page or move a window around etc Seems to happen when one screen has a browser at full screen and something might be leaking over to the other screen not sure if I can explain it better than that When I create an eyefinity group even though the monitors are different I see no flickering at all all is well Just wondering if this is some setting on the smaller monitor I need to look into Its a Dell FPV ALSO I am assuming this videocard with two monitors on it may take a performance hit if I use it while gaming For example have the inch be the gamer monitor and have the inch showing the desktop with a browser window or teamspeak on it Also I m looking through my parts here and I have some older video cards I may look into adding one just for the second monitor on the desktop Thoughts nbsp
im no expert but it could be your refresh rate on the second monitor is different from the first so that could be it,
1.go to control panel under appearance and personalization click adjust screen resolution
2.click the monitor you want to change
3.click advanced setting and monitor tab and change the refresh rate
and your gaming fps should not go down through the multi display set up unless your doing something graphic/cpu demanding task
Hello all I multiple monitors for a card video new Purchasing ve been interested in upgrading my work station also gaming station Purchasing a new video card for multiple monitors by investing in multiple monitors I m not looking for more than monitors but I would like to have at least monitors I currently have a monitor that I have plugged into a graphics card that hasn t let me down yet Its connection to the monitor is DVI but I d like all new monitors to use HDMI cables My computer from Dell is an XPS I believe Core i GHz GB RAM Win -bit ATI Radeon HD Money is only part of an issue -- I m open to suggestions on higher-end and lower-end products My questions for you all are What kind of graphics card should I be looking for and should I look into a card that can support multiple monitors and should I use my old one Will there be any conflicts I will need to be aware of while proceeding through this process What would you all recommend for monitor setup What is the best setup for gaming with clear smooth screens Do I need to upgrade any other hardware parts to make this all work together Thank you all in advance A nbsp
The Radeon 5700 series should support up to 5 monitors. I have not personally used a multi monitor setup for gaming however from what I hear a lot games either arent designed for multimonitor setups or they dont work very well. However, there are some games that are really nice with a multi monitor setup. So you should probably ask yourself what games you are going to be playing and see if those work well with a multi monitor setup. Also, Multi monitor setups require a large display resolution so your videocard will be working overtime. I dont think a 5700 series card will have the oomph to really makes games run smoothly at larger resolutions. So, I dont know what your budget is but I would guess you may have to upgrade your card to something more recent, say a 7800 or 7900 series. I cant comment on Nvidia cards as I am not as familiar with them.
As far as compatibility goes you may need a display port adapter for the third monitor. These are relatively cheap. Also at 525 Watts your power supply barely meets the system requirements for a new card so depending on what else is pulling power in your system you may or may not need a new power supply.
Maybe someone else can chime in with some Nvidia options.
Hello, Long time no speak Paladins.
I'm considering on getting a new UPS for my PCs, specifically the CyberPower CP1350AVRL, either locally or newegg. I'd be running two computers on this unit and for those who uses CyberPower's UPSs, is there a way to manage two computers with it, considering it has both a USB and serial port?
Assuming it does not, Anyone have any ideas how I could emulate this, or have the PC with the datalink to the UPS shutdown the other? Perhaps using an event to invoke the shutdown command to close a remote computer would be the most raw way of doing it, but I'd love to know if there is a more elegant way.
I don't believe there is a "built in" remote function but the script works.
There is also EMCO Remote Shutdown.
Perhaps this is more suited for the Windows sub-forum, but I'll try here first.
I have a laptop connected to two different networks (both with internet), one via wifi and one via an ethernet cable. Is it possible in Windows to dictate which network any particular application will use?
For example, I would prefer it if Outlook pulled from one network while my browsers from another.
Thanks for any advice!

I think you need to use a Display Port or a DP to DVI converter for eyefinity. I'm not 100% sure though.
Hello, this is my first post in a forum ever, haha. So I currently am using OCZ DDR2 PC2_6400 2x2GB of RAM that runs at 2.1Volts according to OCZ's website. And without knowing, I purchased Crucial DDR2 PC2_6400 2x2GB RAM that runs at 1.8Volts according to Crucial's Website. I want to upgrade my computer to have 8GB of RAM but when I added the Crucial RAM, my computer blue screened and now I have to run a system recovery to fix the corrupt sectors. I think the blue screen may be related to the difference in voltage because everything else is the same (minus the manufacturer). Should I set my motherboard to run at a specific voltage? If so, which voltage should I use? I have MSI P6N SLI Platinum mobo.
Update to the Multiple Ram Question
Last night after I ran the system recovery to repair the bad sectors. I booted up with the original configuration of OCZ 2x2GB of RAM there were no issues. I shut down, installed the additional 2x2GB of RAM. Went into BIOS and set Voltage to 1.8 and booted up. It booted up without a problem this time. I'm OK for now, but I don't know if 1.8 is a bad voltage to run at for the OCZ RAM since it's specs are for 2.1 Volts.
I seen quite a few fancy LCD/LED "speedo" type temp displays on users custom builds bit i cant seem to source where to buy from as i dont know what they are called ? (Am in the UK by the way)
I have an Antec 300 with 2 availible front panels and would love one of these fancy displays.
please could you help me find some.
Thanks so much in advance.
They are fan controllers/controller panels. I don't recommend an LCD one though as they can be troublesome. I have this in my Antec 300 and really like it and it matches.
Here are some LCD ones.

ok well this is going to sound crazy but here we go i have a ubee cable modem router model number u10c037 out of that i'm going to two linksys wrt54g's to split to all the rooms in my house then in two of the rooms i have linksys befsr41's and finaly in one room i have a net gear wgr614v10 now it works sorta but i keep having to reset them every now and again right now i'm useing all of the down stream routers as switches what i'm asking is why do i have to keep resetting the system and what can i do to keep it from happening if anyone can help me in great detail i would be very happy i think its an ip address problem but not sure
Starting from the modem;
isp = = modem --->(WAN port)ROUTER#1then to have ALL systems on one network, daisy chain from R#1 to the next but
ONLY connect (LAN)-->(LAN) between all the others. Router#1 will now control
al DHCP assignments - - even for any WiFi router in the chain.
This requires that ONLY R#1 have an active DHCP, so each of the others need
to be set to disable DHCP.
1) One-by-one, connect Router#x via wire to a system, use your browser to access the
router default address, login using the user/password for that router, and DISABLE DHCP.
2) Many routers come preconfigured for lan address 192.168.x.1 where x is 0,1, or 2
Every network can never have duplicate IP address and if allowed, will case network failures.
As you disable the DHCP, also set a new default LAN address 10.0.x.1
where X is 1,2,3,... N and use a new X for each one you've fixed.
Thus, if ever they are wired R1(lan)--(wan)R2---(wan)R3---(wan)R4)
the addresses would be 10.0.1.1-->10.0.2.1-->10.0.3.1-->10.0.4.1
(but you don't want that for routing table reasons)
3) also change the default password for each router.
If your system login password is abcdefg,
you might set the primary router#1 password to abcdefg#1
router#2 to abcdefg#2 and so on.

Go for an Nvidia 560TI or a 570, they will both clock down when you disable your second monitor Mugemon is a great utility for this. 560TI = £200, 570 = £275

You could just use virtual machines for the other two operating systems -- assuming the hardware can handle the load of a VM (it should if you have Vista running) and you don't need to leverage massive resources for 3D or gaming on the VMs.
Your just tripling the complexities by running 3 host OS' in my honest opinion. While I agree they should all work, you'd only need to tackle one OS if you ran the rest as guests.
Out of idle curiosity why do you need separate XP home and professional versions, as well as Vista anyway?
Hi . I have an annoying problem that drives me insane. First of all I am running Windows 7 x32, just to get that out of the way. Second, a lot of public networks keep appearing in my "Network and Sharing Center", and I have no idea why. I have tried to disable the LAN connection and delete the networks one by one, but after I reactivate the LAN Connection they appear again.
I have never encountered this problem, so I really have no resolve for it. You might say that it's not that annoying, but after some time....trust me...it get's on your nerves if you are curious like me to know how to resolve this issue :haha:
Have a nice day,
get a command prompt (start->run->cmd) and enter IPCONFIG /ALL >MyTCP.txt
The file MyTCP.txt will then contain all the details of your connections.
If you paste the contents of that file into your followup, we can discuss with more clarity.
I've had my HKC 21.6" monitor for over a year now, and i've been using it with my PC at 1920 x 1080 with no problems.
However, two days ago the screen suddenly went black and displayed the message "Out of Range". I've had to drop the resolution to 1680 x 1050 in order to see anything.
I've tested the monitor with the same VGA cable but with a different computer - this worked fine, so i'm assuming it's something to do with my computer.
I've tried reinstalling my video drivers, but this had no effect. My card is an ATi Radeon HD 5770, haven't had any problems with it before.
Obviously this is pretty irritating since anything other than the native resolution tends to look ugly.
Any help appreciated
Best thing I can advise is. Grab the latest WHQL ATI and CCC drivers.
before installing, uninstall your ati drivers in safe mode and your monitor from device manager.
Boot into normal mode and install the drivers. Make sure in setting you take off check for only display resolutions this monitor can handle,,, ok give it a shot.. let us know.. gl

I'm currently having a hardware fault, happened awhile ago now but I can afford a new GPU now if I have to but thought I'd futher investergate whats going on. So thought I'd ask for some help.
Turned PC on one day, got the blue screen booted into safe mode tried a few things forgot how I found out but I disabled my display drivers and then my PC was able to boot up without safe mode. Since then all my PC does is watch movies, surf the net and just the basic stuff.
So my GPU is still sending a video signal but if I enable the device, my PC either gets a blue screen or hangs on a black screen after loading windows vista
The card I was running is a geforce 9800GTX-2 in yes my PSU is powerful enough
"So my GPU is still sending a video signal but if I enable the device"...
Graphics cards... or anything else in a computer need drivers to function. Download and install the proper drivers for your GeForce card here:
Hi guys, I recently purchased parts to make a new computer. Everything went fine and the computer powered on upon pressing the ON switch. My problem is that when I plug a monitor into the computer, the only thing that happens is that the monitor goes black and the LED light near the power switch turns yellow/orange. I tried switching out monitors to see if that helps, I even took out my video card and plugged the monitor directly into the motherboard's connection. Just hoping that anyone could help me as this is my first computer that I built.
Thanks in advance.
When you tried the new monitor on a different pc what happened? The same orange light as on first pc? You just need to prove what is 'good' (most of your new system will be) and what is faulty/connection problem/cable problem/etc.
You can test a monitor by; plug in the mains power lead. Nothing connected to the VGA input. Press the 'on' button, then press any of the 'menu' buttons. You should see a message on screen, such as 'Power saving mode, press any key on keyboard or move mouse'.
If you don't see any messages then the screen could be faulty from new.
If you do get an on screen message, then you know the fault is around Graphic card, or (just possibly) RAM, or other power cable missing problem.
Best test is to try your monitor on another, known to be working pc.
Hello I have what I consider a very basic understanding of networking I work for an IT solutions provider and a restaurant chain which we support needs to fix a PCI compliance issue The network at the location was put in place a year ago with little documentation My goal is to move a DVR device for CCTV system away from the PoS machine because the DVR requires a port open which is not good for PCI compliance if both are behind same router I apologize for ignorance or lack of any details you might need to help me if there s some info I need to dig up I d be happy + to How modem routers multiple use bridged to find it I m in a rough spot trying to fix this This is how they are set up They How to use bridged modem + multiple routers have a bridged modem which is the first thing that the DSL line comes into My impression is that the proper way to use multiple routers with a bridged modem is to have a quot main router quot which will be the director if you will All the other routers should then plug into that main router as opposed to having multiple routers plugged into a bridged modem I ve confirmed that for whatever reason TWO Linksys Firewall Routers are plugged into this bridged modem which is a Netopia Again I apologize but I don t have the model numbers This brings me to my first couple of questions If two routers are plugged into the same bridged modem how would they behave Wouldn t they be fighting for control to be the quot main router quot Is it possible to set up two routers to connect to the same modem if some advanced configuration is made I actually would like to AVOID using a main router with the other routers connected to that if possible One of the routers has desktop PC and a Point of Sale system connected to it Router A if you will the other has some IP phones connected to it Router B Router B always times out when I try to access the console and I ve been told that in order to fix that I need to reset the router The problem is I can t afford to lose all those settings because I don t know how the company who installed IP phones configured that one The reason I mention this is to further stress that I don t want to have to reconfigure the existing routers However even though it times out when I try to access console it will assign me an IP properly I don t know what that really means I made sure to double check the gateway IP for that router is correctly typed into web browser At the moment the routers seem to be somehow working fine even though they are both plugged into a single bridged modem What I would like to do is add a third router that will only have the DVR device plugged into it My guess is that since Router B does have connectivity it gives me an IP and I can connect to internet when plugged into it I should set up this third router Router C plugged into router B and go ahead to configure Router C however is necessary for the DVR to function correct Give Router C a different gateway than the others forward the port that the DVR needs etc Is this a viable solution Some of my concern is that I m getting mixed messages from AT amp T technicians I have talked to Supposedly when there are routers connected to a bridge at least one of them need to have the PPPoE Username Password johndoe att net entered on it In a situation like this does router A and B BOTH need to have PPPoE user pass entered What about Router C Since router C is plugged into router B does that eliminate the need to enter PPPoE info Is it possible to only use the routers in static mode as opposed to PPPoE with user pass For example I just enter the primary and secondary DNS which the ISP uses give all the devices a WAN IP using the block of fixed IPs the ISP gives us Will that eliminate the need to use PPPoE mode with user pass And finally my last question would be In getting this DVR set up on Router C should I just go ahead to connect it to Router B and try using Router C in static mode with all the right numbers or go ahead to use the...

One thing I noticed from reading your post was that the problem you are trying to solve (not having the port opened to the DVR on the same network as the PoS) would not be solved by placing router C behind router B. You would still have to open the port on router B to allow it to pass to router C. Wouldn't this be the same as opening the port in router B to allow it to pass to the DVR (if the DVR was connected to router B)?
As far as the issues with AT&T, you can only program the IP addresses that they assign to you in the routers. They should be able to tell you how many IP addresses are assigned to your customer. If you have a router behind another router, only the one connected to the modem would have an IP address from the ISP.

First, invest in a good battery backup line conditioning uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Second, each power outage can damage any part of a computer. Some of this damage is immediate, some causes damage over time. The motherboard's bios gets confused or corrupted. hard drive data and the operating system becomes corrupted...
You may be in for another motherboard or power supply change in this case. You will continue to have these problems until you take action to protect the computer and to turn it off and unplug it when you are not using it, until you can get that UPS up and running
I ve been doing a bit multiple PSU's when GPUs Adding running additional of research lately because I m unsure of the exact upgrade direction I want to take and I ve come up with the idea of using full HD screens along with triple SLI CF but the power requirements in my case would be above the capability of my Corsair HX- Having just spent on that I d rather not even consider replacing it So can a system use a second PSU like any decent PSU or do they need Adding additional PSU's when running multiple GPUs to be built specially for the purpose I was kinda thinking maybe it would be possible to run the system on my Corsair including x GPUs and then run the rd th using another PSU Adding additional PSU's when running multiple GPUs like a w modular thus only using a couple of cables OCZ one or something Besides the space requirements how exactly do you go about doing this e g how would you connect it into the motherboard and is it physically possible Do I need to use a booster thingy PSU like the ones Red uses in his hollodeck instead If so where on earth do you purchase them from in the UK and what are they called Its purely discussion right now I m not tying myself down to any particular idea I d just like to understand all my available paths and answer a couple of questions I m unsure about more than anything nbsp
Having just spent £117 on that I'd rather not even consider replacing it. So can a system use a second PSU (like any decent PSU), or do they need to be built specially for the purpose?Click to expand...
I'm no expert in PSU's so I wont bull**** you on that, it's my weak spot, but is it possible to use multiple PSU's on one system? Yes. Both in your case? I don't know.
Ok so my friends like coming to my place and bring their xbox s and play online together Problem is is that when we all usually or more of us try to play online at the same time joining together then getting in lobbies usually only of us can stay connected to x box live When a couple of us do manage to stay online one of us lags pretty bad We used to have similar problems when we all played on computers too when it was of us it was usually ok but when a th person was online playing things got pretty slow Im using a belkin wireless G router Ghz Multiple bad connection Xboxs, Is it because its not the best router in the world and too many people are playing off the one router Let me know if I should get a new router or what the problem is id like to start having more people over and doing large xbox parties but I cant if we cant get on the internet Also I dont think its because of my internet its self because when im home with just my family we connect Multiple Xboxs, bad connection to xbox live and internet through our computers quickly Thanks let me know nbsp

Hi Im trying to improve my home network Currently I have the modem and wireless router setup in my basement with one computer hardwired to the router and multiple laptops spread throughout the house However the laptops at the top of my house do not have good signal My house is wired with ethernet cabling throughout the house and walls to help or Routers Points Access Need with multiple network home setup What Need help to setup home network with multiple Access Points or Routers I want to do is to take advantage of this wiring and setup multiple routers or AP s throughout house not sure about difference Also to even allow some laptops to connect with an ethernet cable rather than wireless I am not sure how to do this currently All the ethernet cableing Need help to setup home network with multiple Access Points or Routers converge in my garage as an unfinished mess see pic I wanted to run a cable from my router to a plug in the wall which would take the signal to my garage I would then need some kind of device like a hub or switch but i am not sure what kind of device I was hoping it would then distribute the signal to the other wires and send it throuought the house I then wanted to connect another device that would like another router or AP in a another part of the house but am unsure what kind of device and how to do so If anyone could help me out it would be much appreciated nbsp
With Ethernet wiring available you have some nice choices;
use wires to access remote locations
and place wireless in the room(s) needed
Likely you can just wire to each floor and the garage and then let the wireless be accessed from those locations.
The Modem==>#1Router can control all the DHCP assignments and assuming that you only need four remote locations, you can use a 4-port router. If you need more than four, you will need a Switch, eg
modem==router---switch-- four connections
+---- three more connections
Each port from the router is wired to an Access Point or a WiFi router (doesn't matter so use whatever you have). The trick is
disable the dhcp in each Wifi device
attached the ethernet from #1Router to any LAN slot on the WiFi (leaving its Wan slot empty)
This will place all the WiFi on the same subnet as #1 router and sharing et al works across the board
start with just one to get the setup running and then you can use that as a template to
config the others. When performing this task, ALWAYS connect a pc to the Wifi device with a cable!
a) change the SSID to something unique to you but not obviously name, address ,,, (
you could add a suffix to it to identify one from the other
b) set a unique channel on each WiFi router to reduce interferrence.
(if you're using a DSL service, then make sure all phones in the house have a new filter attached)
c) enable encryption (WPA2 or WPA in that order) and set the passphrase (can be the same for all wifi devices)
d) for heaven's sake, change the admin password and save it.
(this will disconnect your PC from the device being configure so don't be shocked)
disconnect from the Wifi device and attempt a wireless connection.
Once this works, you can repeat for each of the others.
This is the strangest error I have EVER seen in XP. I find no mention of this phenomenon anywhere on the web so perhaps I am the first? I surely hope not.
I have a Dell laptop with an integrated keyboard (i.e. built-in). Suddenly, and with no good reason, today my keyboard is acting strangely. Some letters I have to hit 3 times before they type. Others twice. And yet others behave as normal. The correct letter will eventually appear but my Lord no one should have to hit any character on the keyboard more than once.
I need this fixed ASAP because I am taking this PC out of the country with me and I have to be productive.
Laptop keyboard problem
This could be a failing keyboard matrix, fairly simple to order a new one from Dell and fit. Or it could be the keyboard software faulty. A way to check for a failing keyboard, is to plug in a separate keyboard, into a USB socket. If all works well, then the fault is the Laptop's keyboard. Hope that helps, if only to eliminate one possible problem.

Remove all the keyboard entries in the device manager and reboot, letting Windows reinstall the keyboard driver...[advice from forum]
i posted the above problem a year ago and removed keyboard entries in device manager,as advised here....it worked nicely,,,,exact same problem happening again but removing devices and reboot is doing nothing this time......also my system restore willnot restore..... please help thanx Larry
If you haven't already, can you try another keyboard?
i borrowed my cousin my noebook, when it came back it does not operate. when i power it on the power light shows up but nothing shows on the screen, i used RS 232 to connect to external monitor but still nothing is displayed. he told me he properly shut down the machine before he returned it to me, but it looks like he is not telling me the truth. please help.
probably opened the machine and messed up with the video card.
my laptop keyboard is on the fritz. when i push the 'w' key wi appears on the screen my space bar has turned into my enter key my z key is now a 'za' key and my up arrow key is now my right arrow key and so on. i reinstalled the drivers and tried reinstalling the bios, i removed all power sources and even went out and purchased a new antivirus program thinking it was a virus but i'm officially stumped. please, please help, before i'm forced to take a sledge hammer to my problem;-)
You didn't give us the brand and model, but a laptop keyboard can be found for $25 to $50 depending on brand and model and where you buy it... Usully you remove four to six screws from the bottom, unplug the ribbon cable, remove the board and exchange it, then reverse and you have the new keyboard working in less than 15 minutes...
Finding the right keyboard is tricky, but eBay usually has every model available or with a gurgle search

I'm having a slight problem with my dual display set up in Windows XP. I will try to be as specific and provide as much information about the problem and my specs as I can.
I am using an PNY GeForce 210 graphics card with multi-display support. I am using a small (about 15 inch) Westinghouse LCD HDTV as my primary monitor, running on the HDMI port. I am using an old HP Pavilion M50 CRT monitor as my secondary display, running on the VGA port. I'm not sure this matters, but the LCD is running at 720p and the CRT is running at 800x600.
Now for the issue: whenever I turn my displays off, after I turn them back on, it switches to single display and makes the CRT my primary display so I have to go back and reconfigure my dual displays.
Am I doing something wrong? Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated.
hmm; normally VGA and HDMI outputs are not the way to setup dual monitors.
More typically, the GPU has two VGA connections OR it uses a Y-cable where
the staff of the Y connects to the VGA and each leg of the Y attaches to a different monitor
[frequently the legs are stamped #1 and #2 to identify the primary and secondary]
OS: Windows XP Pro
I have 3 hard drives all 80GB, two are from Western Dig and one is a Maxtor and 1 DVD attached as follows.
Primary IDE channel with the 80 wire cable set up:
Drive #1 (OS drive) - jumper on Master w Slave Present, end cable location, assigned to C:
Drive #2 (data drive) - jumper on Slave, middle cable location, assigned to D:
Secondary IDE channel with 40 wire cable set up:
Drive #3 (DVD) - jumper on Slave, end cable location, assigned to F:
Drive #4 (data drive) - jumper on Master w Slave Present, middle cable location, assigned to E: and G:
I don't know why the same drive #4 gets assigned to two letters E and G???
How to fix so it is only assigned to one letter???
I am taking my setup info from: www.mikeshardware.com in the how to connect IDE drives section
The only question that springs to mind is, "is there a partition on the drive"?
I m looking for a little help if someone would be so kind because I m a bit out of my setup network? - real router, server boxes multiple multipe IPs, One normal depth with this I m putting together a small home network well I guess large compared to some where I have three desktops connected to my router by wireless I also have a CentOS Apache ISPConfig server box and a WinServer k IIS server One router, multipe real IPs, multiple server boxes - setup network? box My intention is to connect both of these servers to the router in such a way that each has One router, multipe real IPs, multiple server boxes - setup network? it s own real IP Registered domain names would then be pointed at either the IP of One router, multipe real IPs, multiple server boxes - setup network? the Apache server or the IIS server and so the router would deliver the traffic to the appropriate box according to which IP the domain is pointed at To those ends I ve purchased a block of IP addresses from my ISP Having just called them I ve been instructed that the IP block I ve bought are my internal IP addresses and that once I ve set them up on the router in this way they should work I ve never actually done this before and my networking experience doesn t really stretch past the very basics of home networking and so I have very little idea of what kind of options I need to use to set this up on the router - there are things in there that are more advanced than I understand Could anybody please point me in the right direction nbsp
Regular SOHO routers such as a linksys will not let you manage multiple static IP's. You will need an enterprise class VPN/firewall/router such as a Sonicwall to do that. I assume you want one IP for your web server, one for FTP and so on.. all pointing to different servers/nics. I would suggest a Sonicwall Pro 2040 or Pro 3060. I've seen both on ebay (used) for a reasonable price (around $300). Keep in mind these boxes go for about $1500 to $2000 and up (retail). There are other products from other vendors such as Cisco which will be significantly more. You will need a router in bridge mode (or a bridge) between your WAN connection and the Sonicwall. A regular linksys may suffice for this. There may be other solutions to this but this is one.
I am trying to set up my Gateway DX4300-19 Desktop PC for dual monitors. The problem I am having is that the second monitor is not accepting the signal and or not getting the signal. I am not very tech savvy so I may be completely wrong with this so here it goes:
My video card is a ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated.
So this is how I'm trying to set it up and if I'm completely wrong please tell me what to do.
On the back panel of my desktop there is a VGA output and a HDMI output. I have the VGA going to my desktop Monitor its a gateway.
And Im trying to use the HDMI into my LCD TV as it is hung above my desktop anyway.
Am I doing something wrong or will it just not work?
We have Internet service from two providers Fios Comcast Each service includes -Static IP address xxx xxx xxx - yyy yyy yyy - Which connect to our internal LAN xxx I would like to segregate traffic between services so that that Email Static Using IP's Multiple traffic is on a different IP from users accessing the Internet I would also like to have fail-over from the primary fios to secondary comcast I don t need load balancing the Fios connection is plenty fast My plan is to take a -port switch and plug the two Ethernet connections coming from the providers into it From there I ll attach Watchguard Dual WAN Firewall Users accessing the Internet WAN Gateway xxx xxxx xxx WAN Gateway yyy Using Multiple Static IP's yyy yyy Internal configured with fail-over from WAN to from WAN Fios Supplied Router or suitable replacement Email Server Gateway xxx xxx xxx for Email Internal Comcast Supplied Router or suitable replacement Email Server fail-over set in DNS and on the server Gateway yyy yyy yyy Internal My first question is will this work Normally you would have the Internet connection from the provider going Using Multiple Static IP's directly into the router Can I put a switch in between them If so can I attach two Internet connections and three routers all to the same switch Thanks nbsp
We have Internet service from two providers (Fios/Comcast)
Each service includes 5-Static IP address:
xxx.xxx.xxx.10 - 14 (ISP#1 ->router#1)
yyy.yyy.yyy.100-104 (ISP#2 ->router#2)
Which connect to our internal LAN:
I would like to segregate traffic between services, so that that Email traffic is on a different IP from users accessing the Internet.Click to expand...
This is a port forward solution:
for ports 25, 110, & 143 (the emails), port forward each to the lan address that is closes to the specific ISP side desired, eg any lan address on router#2
I would also like to have fail-over from the primary (fios) to secondary (comcast)
(I don't need load balancing, the Fios connection is plenty fast)Click to expand...
fall over is described well here
you may need to multihome each client (which see)
My plan is to take a 16-port switch and plug the two Ethernet connections coming from the providers into it. .....
My first question is, will this work? Normally you would have the Internet connection from the provider going directly into the router.
Can I put a switch in between them?
If so can I attach two Internet connections and three routers all to the same switch?Click to expand...
I'd have to think out the layout and setup ...

You can have domain running in the home with the equipment you have posted above. I did that here myself. You need Windows client OS that supports domain. Pro series does. Server 2003 has NAT feature and can be your router using additional network card. One Card would be labeled WAN and the other would be called LAN. This can be connected to a 5/8/16/24/48-port switch or even add AP to the mix. So it would be modem to Server to external switch. Having the Server with DNS, DHCP and Active Directory active plus the NAT works great. Take some time to get it all working though. For extra SPI hardware firewall I had use one of those belkin wireless turned off wi-fi, DHCP then connected the server LAN to Belkin then back to the switch. This is optional don't have to do this just saying that's how I did it.
Use a wireless router connect only server to and use external switch from the router to your other network devices. This is another way to do with on domain. Doing this way you don't need to install another Nic card in the server box.
Hi, I was looking to update my motherboard drivers and there i found update for
my BIOS. My mobo is MSi K8N NEO4 Platinum [MS-7125] 1.0. I downloaded update for BIOS, and i got 4 files: 7125 - Text document that says what is that update doing. it says: This BIOS fixes the following problem of the previous version:
- Improve compatibility problem with nVidia graphic card
- Improve stability problem when doing overclock behavior.
Im getting a new nVidia gpu, and + my system is unstable when oc so i really need this update. I also got a exe. file, and some 160. file. when i click that exe file nothing happens. Last file i got is called How To Flash the BIOS.doc. Do i have to read that file in order to update bios?? I dont understand English very well, is FLASHING bios updating BIOS?
Unless you are having a problem that the BIOS update will solve, I recommend not flashing the BIOS. There is a risk. If something goes wrong with the flash whether it's your mistake or a power outage or something else, your motherboard could become useless. This is a risk especially if you are not sure how to read the instructions on how to do it.
Do you have a problem that you think updating the BIOS will fix?
I have Linksys wireless-G broadband router. When surfing the web, while being the only one online at home, internet pages will open almost instantaneous. The pc that i use is directly connected to the router. There is also another pc as well as 2 laptops that connect wirelessly. The internet signal strength is reduced drastically when multiple users are online at the same time. My router is keyed/pass protected and additional unauthorized users is not a problem. I have no idea what kind of signal the router is putting out. I have noticed when playing an online game my latency will go from <100ms and shoot as high as 1.2k-2k. Again ive noticed that latency is high when multiple people are online.
What can i do to troubleshoot this? Is there any way that i can get the signal to boost as more of it is utilized? thx

the short answer is no.

Bandwidth control is difficult with our cheap routers -- the professionals have features
that are seldomly available to home users. Look to see if QoS is supported in your router; if present you *may*
be able to configure it.
You currently have
modem ---- router#1 ---wired system(A)
+ - - - - WiFi (B + C systems)
With that layout, all systems will see all traffic ; system A will see but not process packets from system C.
Not all routers use Switch technology -- see if yours does. If not add a switch
modem ---- router#1 ---(switch*) --- wired system(A)
+ - - - - WiFi (B + C systems)
This will reduce traffic from the router to system(A). Everything attached to the
switch* side will only see its own traffic.
If I were using WiFi, this would be my layout
modem ---- router#1 ---(switch) --- A/P - - - WiFi (B + C systems) wired system(A)
+---- wired system(A)
Here, ALL systems only see their own traffic
In all cases, router#1 provides the initial NAT to allow multiple systems to share the single ISP connection.
I have two monitors, and want to play the same game on both simultaneously, and do so without having both monitors show the same image, but rather to have the game be spread out across the two.

I am hoping you guys can help me out here I have been looking at a pc I built for someone it had two matrox Graphics problem Multiple card graphics cards connected to monitors and was working well for a couple of years the spec Multiple Graphics card problem is basically Athlon Multiple Graphics card problem x processor ASUS M V mobo GB memory and was running Windows XP We recently upgraded to Windows bit and have since had problemswith the graphics and the machine freezing After several e-mails with Matrox it seems that the cards we have are no longer supported and Win drivers are not available they suggested upgrading to their latest cards but at a cost of about I looked around and decided that we may be able to use graphics cards of the same type one being PCIex and the other being PCI I bought Geforce GS cards and fitted them this morning the first two went OK and everything worked fine but problems occurred after the third one with problems with freezing and running slow I updated to the latest drivers which at least enabled the pc to boot up fine but still it seems to be slowly and freezing particularly if we try to open several things at once We have ordered some more memory thinking that it may just be running slow with the extra cards but I am not totally convinced that that will cure the problem Have you guys any thoughts nbsp
I suspect that W7 is the culprit here and the issue of drivers where it starts. I have had problems with mixing the slots with the same sorts of cards so if you have two 8400GS cards in PCI slots, perhaps try something else in the PCI-e slot?
Adding memory is always a good idea but not part of this fix I think!
How can i have more than 2 Monitor plugged into my desktop , i have seen lots of people do that and wonder how ?

Hello I m in the process of searching for a new PC notebook I m in the market for a to inch display and I ve come across a couple laptops that mention having an quot extra-wide quot display or a quot -degree ultra-wide viewing angle quot and things to that effect I wanted to ask some questions about this Does this extra-wide display entail a better picture or resolution or something like that or is it just wider Will an extra-wide display like this make widescreen bars the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen when watching a movie more likely Will the wider display cause these bars to be bigger or appear more often on movies or games or anything else where they wouldn t have on a regular width display My computer will have a - inch display it will be p and will be Need notebook help "extra-wide" displays with PC Blu-ray enabled I m very concerned with getting the best picture possible so I d like to know if the extra-wide display will contribute to that but I m also heavily Need help with "extra-wide" PC notebook displays annoyed by widescreen bars at the top and bottom of my movies and whatnot so if the primary effect of the extra-wide display is simply a wider screen that will have more bars more often then I d like to know that Any help here is greatly appreciated Thanks in advance nbsp
It really depends as much on the graphics card as the screen itself, and there is no reliable way to know. You have to see it setup and play with the display settings.
However, If you select a true high end laptop should be fine. Others will make the images look stretched, but user quickly get used to it. One would think that 1080p would be a guarantee of good screen performance, but it is not.
If you are getting a computer that is in the upper third of its price and model range, you usually get the good screen combination in my experience... HP, Dell, Sony, and Lenovo anyway. You will have to avoid budget laptops.
Hi guys I m new here looks a great forum Hope I can be multiple compatible with p35/g33 Intel monitors? of assistance but right now I need some of my own Intel p35/g33 compatible with multiple monitors? I am running dual monitors on an ATI Radeon and have recently purchased an Nvidia quadro fx to run another monitors So i found out I am having compatability issues as Intel p35/g33 compatible with multiple monitors? the new card is only running x resolution and bit colour it will not allow me to change this My ATI controller now won t Intel p35/g33 compatible with multiple monitors? let me adjust my first monitors and does not pick up the third My chipset is the - intel p g - If i purchase another ATI Radeon will this solve my problem is this chipset capable of running monitors well it s running now one on the nvidia with low colour and res so i m sure it can Will I need to upgrade my power supply Am I damaging the PC if not My board is a Asus P KC if that helps Thanks James nbsp
I would recommend not mixing multiple video cards, so installing another Radeon 7000 is a good idea. Besides, only one video driver would be needed
I recently acquired a 4 year old PC, when I turn it on it passes the POST test (single short beep) and nothing appears on the monitor. The CD drive ejects and keeps ejecting whenever you close it, even with a CD in it. All fans are working.
If you unplug the monitor is says that it doesn't detect a signal. You swap a new monitor in, the same thing happens. So I'm assuming that it isn't the monitor.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am at a loss a to what to next look for.
Try changing your video card. More specs of your PC,
I have a keyboard (Razer Tarantula) that plugs in via USB. The primary problem I have is that during boot up, my computer does not recognize the keyboard. I believe this is because it plugs in via USB (correct me if I'm wrong). If this is the case, in order for my computer to recognize it, I think I would need to buy an adapter so that I can plug it into the traditional keyboard socket (I forget what it's called).
If I buy/use an adapter, will that have any effect on the functionality of the extra/programmable keys.
Thanks for any insight!
Do you mean your computer doesn't recognize USB until the Windows is running?
If that's the case, then you need to check your BIOS settings. There should be an option to enable USB Legacy Support. This tells your BIOS to support USB until Windows starts.
Now you have the chicken/egg situation as you need to get to the BIOS to change the setting! So either buy an adapter (still useful to have for a couple bucks) or borrow a non-USB keyboard so you can change the setting

Forgive me if this has been asked, I didn't look very hard. :rolleyes:
I have two computers, of which both have a Wireless G card and a Wired gigabit connection. Currently they are both on a wireless G 10/100 Netgear router and moving large files between the two via wireless is painful at best.
My question is, would it be possible to connect the two computers via a Cat6 crossover cable or a 10/100/1000 switch while, keeping the wireless connection for internet access? I have a sneaking suspicion that I can't, but I'm not that good with networking so I wouldn't know. :rolleyes:

You don't need a gig router to move gig data from one gig to another gig. Just need a gig switch and either gig PCI, gig PCI-E or GIG PCMICA 32-bit card. But remember G is only 30mbps as N would be more like 120mbps.Wireless will be slower to transfer large files. Newer routers have larger memory packet data buffers some have 832kb for gig switch internal inside the router some have less than 96KB. Gig switches have 64, 128, 144 and all the way up to ((4MB for packet buffers (these are 24/48 ports)).
How large of a file your transferring? I do large files over Gig to Gig daily Stream Media over 100mbps daily. One more tip whatever you do don't put 100mbps devices on a gig switch. You can connect the router if it's a 10/100 to the gig switch that's okay. But if you got slower devices don't do it.

Usually the home user has little need for two or more routers To get more connectivity one only needs to add multiple Tip: routers using a switch hub switch is preferred to the existing router and more slots become available for more systems The typical case for the home user to add a router is expanding a wired LAN and adding wireless connectivity at the same time The issue will be the configurability of both Tip: using multiple routers routers The setup will look like Code modem -- routerA ---- routerB ---b-systems ------ a-systems Which router is existing vs new really doesn t matter other than getting the configuration correct If I had my choice however the B-router would be my new wireless router for security reasons later described A wireless Access Point would also fit nicely in the router-B location CONFIGURATION Both routers will need to be configured likely hardwired at first to one of your systems You will need to access your router s configuration page which is brand-name dependent Netgear D-Link Linksys Belkin Once you ve logged into the router Tip: using multiple routers be sure to set a new admin password TWO Tip: using multiple routers parameters will determine success failure of the configuration the router s ip-address and the subnet mask of course you need the other stuff too but these determine the data flow The typical problem that can arise is the inability to set the subnet mask to a value that will work -- some vendors get parochial and force some assumption that cause problems sorry no I don t have a list Here s what needs to be created Router-A ip-address must be higher numerically than router-B eg X versus Y where X gt Y Secondly the subnet mask for router-A must allow traffic to flow down to router-B A typical subnet mask for home users would be but this would allow traffic ONLY for the router-A where the b X b value was an exact match thus dropping traffic for router-B What we need is a subnet mask more like your X value will then be thru Your vendor may not let you set a value like in the third position or if it does it might get reset when you save the configuration edit If this occurs to you you can try an alternative class-b addresses like X vs Y These addresses require a different subnet mask and the parochial rules need to be dropped -- give it try at least You also might try swapping the devices and trying the steps above again If that doesn t work either you re just SOL -- S out of luck punt and return the last device purchased Each router can still auto config its devices using DHCP Be sure to save the configuration AND restart the router Router-B needs only to meet the rule where X gt Y and may use the typical subnet mask With at least one system hardwired to each router you should now be able to a ping your ISP from all systems b ping from a-system to b-system and conversely when this works correctly the routers are ready for general use and the wireless setup can be configured for channel ssid and wap wep encryption Security Whichever router has the wireless enabled should be considered your untrusted subnet and have the firewalls configured to not allow print file sharing You can implement this on each system s firewall OR use that router s port forwarding feature to protect all system just forward ports to a non-existing system If you really need print file sharing then by all means force your devices to known IP addresses by mapping the MAC addresses of the NIC adaptor and keep a consecutive ip address set for your systems allow print file sharing ONLY for this narrow range of address in your firewalls In this case obviously you can t use the port forwarding trick above In addition your wireless router will have an SSID and allow WAP WEP encryption features You really should implement WAP or at least WEP nbsp

I need to update the bios on my pcg-c1vp sony vaio netbook"PheonixPhlash Error File open failed on PLATFORM.BIN press any key to exit". The bios is the one that the sony vaio website links to "Phlash5.zip" containing "Phlash5.exe".
Maybe i need to run it outside of windows, but im updating the bios because it won't recognize any external boot formats. Its running windows xp pro at the moment and that is the only capacity that it will boot in.
Sony should have Bios Flashing instructions on their support website. Find them! Most of the time bios are flashed outside of Windows using a bootable floppy or CD/DVD disc
I'm currently in the process of building a new pc with multiple hdds and am uncertain as to my options for which type of raid configurations are available. What i would like to do is have 1 wd velociraptor for my os and programs, 2 hdds for data (striped), and 1 hdd to mirror the three other drives. First, is this possible? Second, is this an efficient config or is there a better way?
1. Yes its possible, look in the manual for your motherboard, should be able to do this with most newer mobos, if you bought a prebuilt you may have to google the board.
All the things you listed above are possible, but may require a disk drive(floppy that is) or downloading files on to a flash drive to do.

If you want to test your RAM use memtest:
1. Go to www.memtest.org and download the latest ISO version. It is free and perfectly safe.
2. Burn to a CD.
3. Place CD in your drive and reboot with CD in drive. (You might have to place your drive as first bootable in your BIOS) The test will take over.
4. Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.
5. If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.
6. Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don?t need to run the test any further on that stick.
I'm in the process of trying to reformat a Maxtor 500Gb SATA HD but I've run into a problem with there being two (2) unformatted / unassigned partitions that are eating up most of the drive. There are also 2 partitions (C & G that are approximately 80Gb each). I've tried deleting all the partitions but I can't seem to recover the disc space that's not already assigned and of course I can't do anything with the other 2 partitions. I recently had a virus that CA Suite quarantined and deleted and in the process destroyed my drive so I decided to start over. The drive is clean of all viruses and I just want to start new. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Rob

I have a 3 month old 9500 GT that started just this past Monday giving me fuzzy windows on one of my dual monitors. It seems to only give the fuzzy screen on whatever window I have the extended desktop on. The fuzzy screen only happens when the video card is on its highest setting of (1680 x1050) for both screens, however, if I change the extended desktop setting to a smaller resolution the problem goes away. I have updated the drivers to NVIDIA's latest driver but it didn't fix the problem. I am using VGA cables which shouldn't be a problem since it worked for three months. I checked the cables and the monitors on different machines and they all work fine. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks.

My mp3 player Samsung YP-T9 QAB displays that , and I can't turn it off except for pressing the a/b button and menu simltaneuosely which I discovered at anythingbutipod.com
Before it displayed something like F/W v1.26 and I thought it was a firmware problem so I downloaded the most recent one a couple weekes ago-Obviously it didn't work
By the way this mp3 player had a preexisting problem-I dropped it in water-but I fixed it thru this thread: dropped yp-t9 in water
Anyway, I recall having this bluetooth problem before and I fixed it but can't remembr how
I have two logitech usb laser mice on my pc This is so I can use one right handed or left handed without dragging the wire all over the place My specs left hand mouse logitech M-UV A right hand mouse logitech M-UR A looks just like mice Multiple the other one Windows XP pro usb through Dell monitor ports My problem is that the cursor moves different amounts with the same movement on either mouse Plus the right hand mouse has trouble highlighting text and resizing windows I do not have any idea if they are the same resolution as I have not been able to find that on the logitech site Is there a test that can measure mouse resolution Does Multiple mice anyone know how to set the mouse movement individually I am trying to avoid the obvious answer move the mouse from one side of the keyboard to the other when I want it there Anyone have any ideas about this nbsp
If they aren't the same optical resolution you probably will always have at least the speed/movement issue with defaults. Do either of the mice have their own driver that came on a disk (or is downloadable). Because if so, you may be able to install the mouse driver for that mouse and then adjust it individually.
The other alternative is to buy another mouse that matches one of the ones you are using now, that way they'd behave the same.
In the BIOS Cpu Speed is set(manual)
Freq Multiple is (8x)
When I plugged in Vid Card 6600gt---system would not boot
plugged in Vid Card fx5500--no prob--residual error message was "system hung on improper FREQ MULTIPLE"
Originally this system ran with the 6600gt-poorly,with a 300w psu
For the last 2 years ,I was using a 465 w psu-which pooched -causing a "system failed cpu test "error message--which could only be read after rebooting with the 300w psu and fx5500 card.
So now the questions: (1) Would it be of any benefit to change the FREQ MULTIPLE to a higher or lower value--or Auto?
(2)are both error messages just due to a faulty Psu?
Well my Techspot friends I have a good one for you This just goes to show how a fool and their money will often be made to spend more and more and more Any ideas about a professional liquid cooling unit that will properly disperse heat from two GTX s in SLI and a Quad Core Extreme CPU The fool had gotten some ordinary tubes from Home Hardware or a generic store for & Liquid Multiple Core Quad 8800GTX Cooling Extreme not thermaltake s website and now there Liquid Cooling for Multiple 8800GTX & Quad Core Extreme are problems Liquid Cooling for Multiple 8800GTX & Quad Core Extreme with his system surprise surprise Example being the little pebble looking particles in both the basin for the coolant and the lines from the VGA water block out of the two other employees both of them are superiors to me one has had a cooling kit for longer than I have and my system has been on Liquid for over years no cleaning or flushing of the lines and ZERO problems So the question is as follows Anything powerful enough to take on the Two GTX s and the QCore Extreme CPU Nothing looks promising from Thermaltake s Website - Have yet to check Zalman and Cooler Master Thx Guys -Crack nbsp
Check Coolit's site. I purchased a freezone from them 2 years ago for a q6700, it ran well. I know they have newer modles that even cool gpus as well.
Hey guys I haven t posted here in a long time and I Heads - Displays Up Automotive m not entirely sure if this is the place to post but here s hoping someone can point me in the right direction Has anyone made or installed a Heads Up Displays - Automotive heads up display into a car I m after Ideas on how to do it what equipment to use and if it is probable to use a laptop to influence what can be displayed And Can it be installed to display the speed AND keep the speedometer working Been on google but can t find anything on the latter queries I would be keen on learning how to do this Not really for the sake of cutting time at looking at the dash but to be able to do it It s one of those cool things I feel compelled to learn unless it s really expensive And the novelty of having a HUD in a Mazda GT Cheers guys and girls Blair nbsphttp://www.techspot.com/community/topics/heads-up-displays-automotive.120307/
ok so i got this hp pavilion ze5800, pretty good machine and i dont know what the bios password is, bios manufactured by phoenix i do know that much, can anyone tell me a way to retrieve the password or bypass it?
There is probably no easy way.
The passwords on laptops are designed to not be easily bypassed or reset.
I would take it back to the place you bought it and get your money back.
Wearing some oven gloves probably wouldn't hurt either.

Is this close to you Acer Aspire laptop's specs?
This laptop originally came with Vista Home Premium installed. Is a vista reinstall possible?
Every time I try to start my computer I have to restart it multiple times before it will actually start all the way. The lights all come on and then it just sits there and does nothing so I have to restart it and then after about four times of doing that it will finally start up. Sometimes if I take my battery out it starts up faster and with less tries.
Any advice on what it might be?

I'm very new to networking so please forgive my lack of understanding!
Recently moved into a mates house, the router for the Internet is a Netgear Super G and manages to transmit a pretty good signal to most of the house - apart from my room at the other side of the house.
Now, I also have the same router (Netgear Super G) and was wondering if it was possible to use this to boost/spread the signal to reach my room?
The router has one modem input and 4 Ethanet cable sockets...
Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated!
I don't consider networking my strongest point.
But I'm pretty certain you can't if anything they would probably knock each others signal out (if they're on the same channel).
There are signal boosters you can buy but they're not very good either, if you want some extra speed out of your wireless I would advice getting a "N" router, it's one up from Super G but you need an "N" adapter for your computer as well.
Hope this answered your question.
I've seen a number of great deals on monitors in the 19"-24" widescreen categories, but invariably they have contrast ratios of around 1000:1. How important is contrast ratio? What would you consider to be the sweet spot for price and performance?
It really depends on how crazy you are about stuff like that.
It literally is the ratio of the brightest pixel to the darkest pixel. I expect that the increasing ratio is sort of a logarithmic function on how much you notice (ie - you'll notice the difference between 500:1 and 1000:1 a lot more than 2000:1 and 3000:1).
I think that probably every monitor out there will look fine for regular computer use and most gaming. I think where it really becomes important is if you watch a lot of movies with the lights off.
Ok I have a question I couldn t think how to word the title properly but it ll do Basically I m looking to upgrade my Mobo I have an ASUS M N-E SLI now it has x slots but one runs at x I need running at x each I m looking on Newegg for a new one and I decided to look at the ones that had x slots on em slots, x16 Multiple SLI PCIe compatible? I found a few I like Multiple PCIe x16 slots, SLI compatible? but I need to make sure the spacing is standard for SLI-ing or X-firing cards at the same time It looks like the x slots the Multiple PCIe x16 slots, SLI compatible? running at x are too far apart for a standard SLI bridge Here are the I found http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E I d prefer the second one I like ASUS mobos a lot So will a normal standard SLI work on this or will I need a special cable OR will I have to put one in a x slot and one in an x slot cuz that defeats the purpose nbsp
Ok, a few days is enough. Can someone please answer this, I can't make a buying decision until I get some input here. I'm not asking much, really, just whether I'd be able to use this for SLI-ing cards on both the 16x (speed) slots. Please?
hope someone can help.
every now and again i will turn my pc on, everything will look to boot fine, all the lights flashing on the pc etc. i can hear the hard drive boot, all the fans wizzing etc etc... but there will be no display on the monitor at all.
i also had my tv hooked up to the gfx card, so i switched that on and again no display which eliminates the possibility of a faulty monitor.
i tried and tried by rebooting pc, rebooting monitor, fully turning power off to everything and trying to boot, nothing!
then the next day, turned my pc on, and it worked!! as if nothing had happened. now, i darent turn my pc off incase it happens again but this time permanantly.
im currently running xp, have 2 7600 gs's but atm im using dual display so its NOT in sli. any suggestions?
I would do the below.
1. Open case remove and re-seat the Video controller card.
2. To do the above you had to disconnect the Monitor Cable from the card, now if the other end of the video cable can be removed just unscrew and re-attach (in case of poor connection)
3. Run without TV attached for a while, long enough to see if issue fixed.
4. When TV is plugged back in pay attention to if there is a difference of when the TV is on or off. If you have borderline voltage for the system hence Video adapter the TV may cause a draw.
I am usine a belkin-n router, I have 7 computers running off the one router. 2 are hardlined in the other 5 are wireless. Have been running this system for approximatly a year. Within the last 3 weeks at roughly the same time in the evening I have been experiencing a lag issue. It has kicked different comp. out of AIM chat rooms, off online games and even from msn messenger. during a couple of these episodes have run a speed check and it has checked out. went through each computer and ran virus scans, even restored a couple to original set-up. have gone so far as to shut down all but one computer and still seeing the lag issue. not all 7 computers are on typicallly at the same time usually only 3-4. Any help or ideas anyone has would be appreciated.
This can be an issue at the ISP and not directly related to your router/lan/systems.
When the dropout occurs, use a browser to access the router config page, login
and check the WAN side config -- specifically look for WHEN the lease was granted
and when it will expire.
