Preferred Solution: z240, Linux and EDID

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 would guess you would have better driver support through windows vs linux for drivers.

Hi guys, I'm not good in english but I hope u will understand all.

Few weeks ago, my computer monitor suddenly get 1024x768 (or something like that) resolution, and I can't set better, because this is my max resolution. Before this situation I had 1920x1080 resolution. I know I can now only set resolution of my video card. I searched for reasons, and this must be corrupted EDID, but I can't find someone with this damn monitor. I also tryed install many different versions of video driver and use few different cables, but problem is still alive.

If u have this monitor, I wan't to get copy of your EDID, or if you have other idea, I can do whatever u write

Hey guys, I don't really know anything about EDID override but apparently it should fix my monitor problem that I posted earlier..My questions are : Are EDID overrides specific to monitors? Where do I get them? How do I use them? My monitor is the Acer V233H.

Thanks,

Hi, recently I've got a new monitor which best displays at 1920x1200, but the accursed EDID limits that to 1440x900. Luckily, I was able to override that with ATI CCC, but that only works on VGA. Switching to the better DVI limits the resolution back to 1440x900. Making it bigger via Windows Display Properties only made everything worse, the screen does not display everything and I have to move my mouse to move the view.
I have tried mamny times uninstalling/reinstalling video card drivers, even old ones on the disc, but that did not work. Even unistalling/reinstalling the monitor on Device Manager did nothing.
Please help.

Hi,

I recently got a new monitor, an Eizo EV2750, which Windows only recognizes as a generic PnP monitor.

I've tried connecting it thorugh DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI without any luck. The often mentioned sollution, to unlplug everything and wait 10 minutes, does not work either.

The graphics card seems to read the EDID however, as in nVidia control panel it displays correctly as EV2750. Same thing with other applications, like DisplayCAL which I use as my color management system.

Seems like it's only an issue with Windows. This issue, however, also means that I can't get full functionality from the monitor. For instance, the ambient light sensor does not work (which is typical when Windows doesn't recognize the display properly).

Does anyone have any sollutions to this?

A:Windows not reading monitor EDID

It seems you need a monitor "driver".
Monitor drivers aren't really drivers at all, just identification data that the OS can read and file to identify the device correctly.

Most monitor "drivers" are offered up by Windows Update. But if your monitor is too new to be included in the vast list of Windows drivers, then it may be a while before it shows.

If your monitor came with a disk (CD or DVD) you can check to see if there is a "driver" offered there.
Otherwise, check the manufacturer's website.

I'm on the trail of what might turn out to be quite a boon for those folks with resolution and refresh rate issues. Seems that Windows caches a copy of the monitor EDID since querying it can be very time consuming at startup each time. There appears to be no "protection" on that stored binary value and I've been able to modify some aspects of the Screen Resolution dialog by futzing with the bits and doing a logon/off cycle. Anyone care to embark in this little research project along with me?

I need folks that are having issues with missing native resolutions, 59Hz, etc. to test custom override EDIDs. I can't very well create a complete solution with the limited hardware resources I have at my disposal.

A:LCD Native Resolution, EDID and 59Hz issues

I would, but the 59 Hz issues is statistically insignificant, so there is really no point in doing that....

Install the latest Catalyst Software. There was a bug fixed in 9.4 that should do the trick.

These include:
• City of Villains: Display now redraws correctly after changing graphics settings
• Catalyst Control Center: [email protected] and [email protected] Component Video modes

• WinDVD9 HD playback doesn't cause the desktop to jitter or flicker anymore
• Device Manager no longer displays error during express driver uninstall


I misread, for some reason I read you were on 9.2, not 9.7

When you create your custom resolution in ATI did you set it using W7 Screen Resolution? You should find it under Advanced - List All Modes

When you run HP service packs, they will expand and place their contents under an own directory within C:\swsetup.Specifically in your case, if you run sp74202.exe, you should see a new directory C:\swsetup\SP74202 has been created with the contents of the service pack within. Alternatively you can use 7-zip to peek inside the service pack exe without running it since the exe is a self extracting zip file that runs the installer once decompressed  In any case, a newer ME update exists here but i'd first apply the latest system firmware update available here. When looking at the HP service pack links above, it's good practice to selectively click each "Description", "Enhancements", "Installation Instructions" "Release Notes" "Fixes" and "Revision History" tabs and read the information (some of it is repetative but you'll soon learn where to focus your attension). The contents of these tabs contain important and relevant information on what has been improved, fixed, which system it's for, how to install the update, etc. And if a previously installed SP is not listed in the "revision history" tab, that release may have been pulled by HP due to some fauly behaviour or other issue! Pay particular attension to the prerequisits as in some instances firmware updates have to be stepped (that is you can't always simply apply the latest). And if you read such boaring stuff, the system firmware (BIOS) Installation Instructions tab would have given you a clue where the sp files are expanded to  Have you tried simply enter the command (as specified) via a command prompt window but changing directories to where the FWUpdLcl.exe file is located? Just keep in mind that sp74202 is the initial ME firmware release so nothing sould update  So best to apply the latest system firmware (BIOS), then the ME firmware, then maybe the latest ME software (under chipset drivers). Best to bookmark this page which lists all the downloads for your z240 Windows 10 64bit tower system so check it out periodically.

I am trying to setup my new HP Z240 workstation, but cannot get the graphics card to operate at any resolution above 1024 X 768. The graphics card is an NVIDIA QUADRO K620. It is connected to the monitor with a DVI-D Dual link cable. The monitor is an HP w2408. The monitor has two inputs (DVI and VGA). I have the VGA input connected to another HP computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 card (this computer/card/monitor displays at 1920 x1200). When I checked the adapter modes (using the list modes option), the best mode listed is 1024 x 768. The NVIDIA spec sheet lists the max resolution with DVI-I as 2560 x 1600 or 1920 x 1200. What can I do to get the max resolution from my monitor (1920 x 1200)?











Solved!

A:Graphics resolution on Z240

Update.  Problem solved. When I realized that the monitor in DVI mode was not being recognized as PNP, it pointed to the monitor as the problem. Installed new monitor, everythng works as it should. Evidently the VGA input to the old monitor functioned properly while the DVI portion was defective (card or cable connection). Dave6666

Hi, I'm wanting to install 2 x 3.5" HDDs in my new Z240 SFF Workstation. There is a bay that already came with an insert and one of the new drives slots into that just fine. However it looks like some sort of insert/caddy is needed for the "External/internal shared 3.5" bay", as it is too big for the drive itselt to slot in. It looks like this bay is sized for some sort of optical disk. I've called HP and their spare parts people here in Australia, but no one can find the part needed. Can some one please help?

HiI have bought a z240 tower which runs really well with win 7 pro. Recently, I wanted to add an SATA extension card, but without any success. I am looking for a simple SATA controller without RAID functionality (which unnecessary slows down the boot procedure). Unfortunately, HP does not offer any SATA boards as accessories - Is there any recommendation for such a card from your side? I've bought a LogiLink PC0059A card, unfortunately, the system does no longer startup when connecting drives to it. The hp BIOS  screen appears as usual, then the card shows the attached drives, after that the hp bios screen appears again and reamains without any reaction (reboot required). Thanks for any hints Tom

Hello, My company recently purchased some Z240 SFF workstations and put in aftermarket multi-media card readers in the 3.5" slot. The card reader uses the internal USB 3.0 header, so I had to unplug the USB 3.0 cable for the for the front usb ports in order to get it to work. The media card reader works just fine in Windows, however, I get a POST error message on startup: "Cable detection Error 41A- Front USB2 Not Connected. Front USB cable has been detached or unseatted from the motherboard. Press Enter to continue." Is there anyway to disable POST messages? I can't seem to find anything in the UEFI/BIOS to do this.

A:Z240 POST Message disable?

One of the HP engineers who has been very helpful to us here has recently posted on a related question, and he has access to the schematics and the internal design details of these workstations.  His post is on this thread,  HERE : http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Z420-USB3-0-Head... Dan tells how to jumper the header to make it believe the cable is still connected, and it would not matter whether you jumpered at the motherboard end or the far plug end, as long as you got the correct pins/plug holes jumpered. Note his caution.... that seems to suggest that the pins on the motherboard are not as stout as the ones we are used to seeing.  A proper sized insulated wire jumper with a short segment of wire exposed at each end can be used as a jumper at the far plug end of a cable, rather than the little plastic jumpers we use at the motherboard pin end of thins.  If you carefully figure out the wire colors this should work. The wiring of such headers/cables within a HP workstation family are usually the same, and things can stay the same from one generation to another, in my experience.

Hi, I had a look inside and the Z Turbo drive appears to be connected to the motherboard (location 23 on the motherboard map in the manual) and not using a SATA port or any of the four main PCIe3 slots. Only one of the PCIe3 slots is being used and that is for the NVIDIA graphics card, and only one of the SATA ports is being used and that is for the Slim BluRay drive (connected to SATA3). That means there are 3 x SATA ports available, and 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5" bays available, by the looks of it. My question is, is it possible to put 3 x HDD/SSD drives in it, i.e. 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5"?

Greetings, The 400 power supply could be an issue. A stock GTX 970 lists a recommended 500 watt power supply. You have to verify the 10.1 inch to 10.5 inch card will fit in your chassis. You should have the required UEFI BIOS if the system is brand new and you have a PCIe x16 3.0 slot available on the system board. Cheers!

Hello matt_william,  If you are using a retail version of Windows 7 Operating System. You may have to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver while installing the OS. On the HDD partition windows, you will get LOAD DRIVER option, you have to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver.   Please find below link to download Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=8323799&swItemId=wk_156996_1&swEnvOid=405... NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY NEED TO BE PERFORMED ON ANOTHER UNIT.   TO USE THE INTEL RAPID STORAGE TECHNOLOGY DRIVER DURING A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALLATION: 1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved). 2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Navigate to C:\SWSETUP\SP73487 and unzip "f6flpy-x64.zip" to a USB key for a 64-bit installation. 4. Use the newly created driver installation media during operating system setup to install the drivers.  Once you copy the driver on another USB media, connect it with unit on which you are trying to install OS.  Click on Load Driver and navigate to USB and install the driver. Once the installation is complete, You will be able to access HDD and will be able to install OS.  I hope that answers your question.  I am an HP employee, the opinions expressed here are my personal opinions, not of HP. Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer ?Accept as Solution? if it solves your problem. ***Click on "Thumbs up" button to the left side of my post to acknowledge the post ***

Hi all, I got a Z240 SFF workstation with a 512G HP Z Turbo Drive G2 intalled on M.2 slot as a boot drive. I recently add a 1.2T Intel 750 PCIe SSD on PCIe slot 4 for additional storage. However after the Intel 750 SSD was intalled, the computer began to shutdown automaticly after couple of minutes running. The issue will be fixed after remove the Intel 750 SSD. The system is running 64bit Win10, with Samsung NVMe Driver. The Intel 750 SSD can also be read and write when installed and Intel Data Center Tool shows that the SSD is healthy. I think the auto shutdown issue is related to overheating on 750 SSD. I am wondering if the motherboard of Z240 SFF is compatible with Intel 750 SSD. Does anyone have Intel 750 PCIe SSD installed on their Z240 SFF or any other Z Workstation? Thanks! NOS_ATX

It appears that newly shipping Z240 Tower workstations DO NOT have an internal USB header anymore?  The System Board Overview graphic in the Maintenance & Service Guide (Oct 2015) shows #7 as a USB 2.0 internal header.  However, the location where the header should be on the system board is actually a 1x6 pin header (P150) listed as "MEDIA".  The other USB 2.0 Header, #5, is taken up as the front USB cable. So is there an updated manual that shows what is actually on the system board?  The Z240 Tower QuickSpec is dated March 2016, so I'm hoping there is a newer manual out there somewhere.   Any idea what the P150 MEDIA header is for?  Is this for the old media card readers?  I have the optional SD card reader, but that is attached to #8 which is the internal USB 3.0 header. Any way to attach deveices that need an internal USB 2.0 header?

Hello.

Devices powered by Linux are increasing day by day, and most of these devices are positioned at the entry or key points of any organization?s network. Misconfigurations and easy to exploit vulnerabilities are commonly leveraged by bad actors. Many of these attacks can be studied by configuring low-interactive Honeypots.

Low-interactive Honeypots can capture the malware scripts and binaries, however analyzing these malware samples are also important. Further, keeping such analysis openly available helps independent researchers to search information of their interest and make useful conclusions.

Detux aims at automating the analysis of Linux samples, by supporting multiple CPU architectures (ARM, MIPS, MIPSEL, x86 and x86-64), and making its result openly available for researchers.

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Details:

This is a Dell Vostro V13. I've sent this thing off to Dell twice, they reinstall Windows (which is mystifying.), it last a few weeks, crashes again. Now I'm, of course, out of the warranty window. What a coincidence.

The hard drive is not dead, and the monitor works. I can remove the HD, cable it to another computer, it spins up fine, all files intact, and the LCD appears perfectly normally in BIOS.

I don't know if this is in any way related, but in the interest of thoroughness, i'm always on the Net (firefox) when it crashes.

But then, I'm always on the Net...

A:Linux lovers what is the best Linux OS that is as fast as a MAC desktop

While I use Linux full time, it's certainly not a magical solution to a slow PC, the PC is extremely old and even with a lightweight Linux OS it will still be slow.  The OS is only part of the problem, even if you somehow install a magical fast distro, your web browser will still struggle to run well on the weak PC.There are easy to learn and well supported distros out there (Ubuntu is pretty good as it's so widespread meaning there's tonnes of support online) but no matter what you go for it will take some getting used to.If I'm totally honest, if you have a brand new MacBook Pro I can't think of any reason to keep using that Dell, you may be attached to it but it's really out of date and several times less powerful than the mac will be.  The mac will be so fast, I imagine the Dell will feel even slower once you get used to the mac.  If you want more of a desktop experience there is nothing to stop you connecting the MacBook to your monitor, keyboard and mouse and essentially using it like a desktop.  By all means don't trash it and keep it around for tinkering with, but it seems silly to use it when you have a significantly better machine.

Linux mint is comparatively easier to use, as it's GUI is similar to Windows. On the other hand, Ubuntu or Fedora look a bit different, but the functions are basically the same.

It will be a good idea to take a backup before installation.

A:{Moved to Linux Forum} - NT-4 AND LINUX ?

Greetings

OK, I have never worked with Corel's Linux, but I have been told that it is a nice version to learn the Linux GUI.

Other good version's to learn on are Mandrake and Red Hat. But, if you want to get more power out of your linux installation, you need to use distributions like Slackware, or Debian.

And... I am sure that another Linux fan will have a completely different point of view. Oh well... If you want, I can move this thread to the Linux forum, and you can see what their reaction is.

My best solution for you, is to buy a "Linux for Dummies" type of book, which should come with a free CD with a Linux distribution on it. That way, you get a beginner's Guide to Linux, plus a pressed bootable CD.

What I can give you, are specific instructions to installing linux as a dual boot system with NT.

If you go to www.xperts.co.za/reuel/multiboot I have specific instructions on how to dual boot your system with NT.

Hope this helps

If you need to read an NTFS mounted drive in that machine then you'll need to add kernel support for NTFS. Try looking http://www.linux-ntfs.org/ for that info. If you just want to hit shares then just mount them via smb.

Hi there

Linux Mint (17) QIANA now released

I Am trying this in a VM now before testing on a REAL machine. I'm looking for good things with this release --it's a LTS (Long Term support) release which will be supported until 2019.

This is the sort of things I've been looking for -- I tend to use Linux as an everyday desktop and like the idea of Long term release support -- one of the main reasons I chose OPENSUSE over a lot of other ones - but I do prefer a debian based system over an RPM based one like SUSE even though I haven't had too many complaints with it.

(I recommend you use the LEGAL torrent in their links - it's a lot faster than some of the servers until the mirrors get loaded up with the new release).

Linux 2.6.9-1.681_FC3 on hda. When I try to install the 2nd system on hdb the boot loader overwrites the MBR on hda. I am lost as to how to get around this. I am not currently nor do I plan to run Windows. I am reading info pages on Grub and Parted, but I feel a little overwhelmed and could use a little guidence. I would appreciate any help to get me pointed in the right direction. Thanks,

A:2nd linux install overwrites MBR of 1st linux install

What version are you installing as the second Linux?

All Linux installs ask you where to install the bootloader. You may have to choose some advanced install method if it doesn't for you.

Just tell it not to install a bootloader at all or don't put in the hda MBR. It usually gives you a choice between the MBR and the Linux parition IIRC. Just put the second instance onto the new Linux partition.

After that edit the original bootloader's configuration so you can boot the second Linux instance.

You could also use a common boot partition for both of your Linux installs but that would take some more tinkering.

Will any linux OS run BF2? Very upset right now as I reformat my "gamer" PC. Started BF2, joined server, game froze, I do cont/alt/del and restart. Get "error loading system" and XP doesn't load. Insert XP cd, try to "repair existing" and get bad file path message. Can't start in safe mode, loose patience, reformatting and must re-install all the usual stuff...aggghhhh!

Sorry. just venting I guess....
 

A:BF2 on linux?

Windows is very unstable but is sometimes compatible with games
Linux is stable but isn't compatible with any games.
There is a program called wine that might work if you know every cryptic computer programing and coding language and have gone to school 12+ years studing computers 40+ hours a week. But if you are like me and have but limited c+ experience, or no programming experience whatsoever, getting games to run on linux (with or without wine) is practically impossible.

I would love to bite my tounge and be proven wrong however.

Anyone

Hi,

I'm writing a small program to get my computer IP on LAN (e.g. 192.168.x.x, it's not 127.0.x.x). In Windows, it's simple, but I can't do it in Linux (code is quite similar). If you know about it, could you show me please?

Thanks in advance.

I just got reading that gargantuan 81 reply post about Linux...

Now my question is, should I install Linux?

I've heard so much about it, and so many possibilities exist, but should I or shouldn't I?
Plus there's the whole Red Hat, Mandrake, SuSE, Caldera, Turbolinux, Gnome, Lycoris, Debian and Slackware versions....Ugh! Which one?

What are it's advantages over Windows? (I'm running ME right now.)

I have 2 hard drives, one is 20 GB and the other is 10. I can install Linux on the 10 GB.

Also, how big is the download? I have dial up :dead:

I was thinking of dual booting w/ Windows and Linux, and playing all my games in Windows and everything else in Linux.

I'm really curious. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I regularly visit the 3DSpotlight IRC channel, so you could meet me there.

To take your questions one by one:

I recommend that anyone interested in how computers work install Linux. Its a Hacker's operating system (Hacker in the sense of a techie who likes to take things part, not break into other people's computers which is cracking....) and as such you will learn a lot about programming, kernels, scripts, compiling, how operating systems and programs are made up, etc, when you install Linux. Its a lot easier to install these days than it used to be.

Well, all Linux heads tend to have their favourate (mine being Red Hat) but the best thing I can say generally is just pick one and get started. Probably that one will wind up being your fav. The industry standards are probably closer to Red Hat and Mandrake. My posted instructions ( http://www.3dspotlight.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214 ) refer to Red Hat install, but could be adapted for others as well.








What are it's advantages over Windows? (I'm running ME right now.)Click to expand...

Well, that's something that we could go on about all night (its late here already) but let's just say firstly that its free (more or less), other users can be VERY friendly and supportive, it has a LOT of powerful tools bundled with it and it has some very powerful capabilities. Windows limits the user in many ways (which again we could go on about all night) but Linux does not have such limitations. You can make it look like whatever you want. You can make it behave in a whole variety of ways that you can't with Windows. And it has some VERY powerful commands that Windows just doesn't even touch on.

For example, there are built in capabilities in Linux to burn CDs from the command line, write your hard drive with zeros, and so forth, all expressable in UNIX commands and executables. Any good Linux distro comes loaded with programs for doing just about anything that you can imagine, without the need to buy any more. And it does not suffer from the Microsoft syndrome (i.e. make the browser and the media player part of the operating system just to stick the foot into the groin of the competition.....)

Click to expand...

Yes. It would be best if the drive you install it on is on the primary IDE controller (either master or slave) and not the secondary, again for reasons I can't be bothered going into right now.






Also, how big is the download? I have dial up :dead:
Click to expand...

In that case, you can forget about downloading Linux pretty much, if you want the real experience. Redhat is 2 full CDs and Mandrake is 3 if I remember. But you can buy it for a fraction of the cost of Windows (any version) from any good computing store. The money you are paying mainly goes into the cost of the media itself, the printed manuals and the technical support you will be entitled to if you buy a boxed copy.

Your best bet is to take the plunge and see where it leads you. Maybe Linux is not for you. On the other hand, maybe you will unlock a door that will change your computing experience. I would not be ready to adandon Windows completely albeit for games at this early stage, but certainly an installation of it on some free hard disk space will do no harm. If you decide you think its rubbish, too hard to get into, or too hard to work with then you can dump it. If you are the sort of pers... Read more

first off, I don't know much about linux, however I am beginning to search for alternative to the windows operating systems...what are some of the main differences in how linux works vs. windows 9x/ME/XP/etc. also, can programs made for windows (games, AIM, etc) work on linux - is some sort of windows emulator required? how about using my ISP on linux? is the set-up for internet access/email etc much different? keep in mind that I've never worked with linux before, so some of the questions may not be relevent.....also, could anyone maybe grab a sceenshot of their comp running linux and post it for me? thanks
 

A:new to linux

One of the main differences between Linux and Windows is that Linux is open source. The kernel code is free for anybody to modify, which allows for you to compile compatibility into the kernel (for things like NTFS). Also, they use different file-systems. Linux uses ext2 or ext3, where Windows uses FAT32 or NTFS. Linux has partial NTFS support, but it can read and write Fat32.

Linux, of course, is free, which is always nice. Most software for Linux is also freeware, or is cheaper then Windows software (e.g. Red Hat 9 comes with OpenOffice, for free, while Microsoft Office, which has the same features, cost a fairly hefty price).

You will need a Windows emulator like WINE to run Linux programs under Linux, but even then, you won't be able to use directX (I think). I had a really hard time using WINE. You also might consider using software like Bochs, which will emulate an entire computer, which you can install Windows onto for gaming + such.

I have cable internet and have never encountered a problem using my network cards (both wireless and wired). Unless you have some crappy WinModem, Linux should be capable of using Dial-Up.

Can someone tell me if there is a way to install UO:LBR on the linux operating system.

I just purchased the Mandrake 9.0 PowerPack Edition

If this is possible would anyone be able or willing to give me some quick steps or overview of what it will take?

I have been using windows ever since I have ever used a computer...and one of my friends uses Linux and I was thining about switching but I just don't know the differences and pros and cons with Linux compared to Windows...any comments?
 

A:LINUX Yes or no?

Its good for some things that windows is not. And vice versa.

I would dual boot. I am taking my career down a linux/UNIX path, and believe me, I still dual boot.

Linux differs from Windows in many ways, and its is a very different world to get used to. However, there are many rewards in being a part of this world. There is some extremely interesting computing stuff going on in linux, that covers just about every part of computing. And just about everything you get will be free, and will be supported by computer enthusiasts and experts - just because they want to help you. Its a great community.

A linux system comes out of the box with all you need to get into some really good programming (OO, scripting, all sorts), databases, networking and much more. When you install programs, you will get the source code to those programs, which you can use or examine yourself.

In terms of playing games, listening to mp3s, office applications, internet surfing, it has no additional benefits. Windows is probably much better at these things.

I tried Red Hat Linux four years ago and never did figure out my way around it and then dumped it. I would like to try it out again and see what happens. Any recommendation on which Linux I should try out. Keep in mind I know next to nothing about Linux.

Thanks

A:Trying Linux out

Red Hat is probably the market leader and is my favourate distro. My extensive installation instructions here:

http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214

...were written with Red Hat in mind. There's plenty of info there on installing and on guiding you through some of your initial hurdles that you will probably find, as we built the thread up with several members installing Red Hat and posting in with any problems that they found. AFAIK there were no unresolved problems.

Red Hat has come a LONG way in the last 4 years. I remember installing Red Hat 4 years ago and its nothing like it is now. You will find that a lot of the installation is done for you just like Windows 2000 type of thing. You will of course require some unpartitioned HDD space before beginning but the thread tells you all about that.

I really think that if you are curious, you should give it a go. Its really another world and there is a lot to learn about computing from installing and using Linux.

Post back here with any problems, but it might be better if you posted to the thread http://www.techspot.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=214 instead of here to avoid any duplication. Its best to keep all of people's first experiences and first problem solving in one thread and as to provide a resource for future users. I also attached a .txt file which as a far as I remember was printer friendly which contained all of the instructions, you will find that in the thread too. Good luck and please feel free to post back with any questions. I can't promise that we will have all of the answers but there is a good community here who will give it their best shot.

hey, I have two 80 gig HDD's, i had linux installed on my slave, I wanted to get rid of it so I deleted some partitions, partition magic then went to restart, I got an GRUB Error 17 error when trying to boot back up, i put in my XP cd, somehow go back into windows by fluke

I know if I restart my computer again it will give me the same problem, so how I can reset my MBR to boot into windows correctly.

I am running SP2 Pro.
Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks a lot!

Let me know if i need anymore details! thanks !
 

A:Had Linux, Got rid of it... MBR help please!

Set the BIOS settings to make your WinXP hdd first in HDD boot order. Then boot your WinXP CD. Get into the recovery console and type the "fixmbr" command. Reboot your comp without the XP CD and you should go straight into Windows.
