On the old lumia 650 you could block numbers even private ones, the newer model doesn't seem to have this facility?
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.)

While the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X has been praised for its compact PCB and powerful closed-loop liquid cooling solution, many Fury X owners noticed that the pump block included with the card emits an annoying high-pitched whine, ruining what...
Kill every sound, AMD, but the whining will continue...
Microsoft showed off a whole range of new PCs and devices running Windows 10 at Computex 2015, but one that really caught the eye is the Quanta Compute Plug, an entire PC integrated into a power plug the size of...
They may be handy to a lot and even have very reasonable prices but I can't imagine myself ever wanting any of these.
Much of the lure surrounding Microsoft's long-rumored Surface Mini was the notion that it'd come in at a lower price point compared to its full-sized brother. That project was ultimately scrapped and instead, we got the Surface Pro 3 -...
This was sounding so promising then I got to 2GB RAM....
Have a look at your PC now - if you are running next to nothing over standard windows services, then you are probably somewhere around 1.2GB. Add an email client, some virus software a few Chrome Tabs and you will already be swapping away to page file as the OS starts to worry about memory and things will start to grind. How much would 2 more MB cost? Shame as otherwise it sounds quite a capable little machine.
This ink cartridge http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Product.do?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&sku=T048120
Is labelled as "T048120-S" on some online stores... others it's labeled just as "T048120"
What does the "-S" mean? single cartidge?
Probably means standard capacity.
Had an AMD HP G62-227CL laptop that overheated and required motherboard replacement with similar Intel motherboard. Old board clocked at 2.2 MHZ .. new one is 2.0 MHZ.
Board I got from Ebay works but now computer believes that it is a Compaq CQ42 Laptop. Do not know the model number, which I would need on HPs site to download BIOs upgrades.
Is there a way to tell which bios I need or what model I now have?
Finding a bios update rather then the one hp would give for this board. Would be next to none.
You could check a few of the support pages for this model. Which their are a lot Of
Maybe find out the motherboard you have bought.

Ok,I am building a PC and I would like to buy EVGA GTX 650 Superclocked 2GB GDDR5.
I got one 120 mm fan and I can afford myself one more(both 1200 rpm)
Will that cut it?
You don't need to if you don't want to.
I need a smartphone that I can put a document with addresses and phone numbers on and the smartphone will hyperlink the number straight from the document.
I currently use iPhone 3gs and a app (Documents by Savy Soda) and it works: wifi doc to phone; open app; open doc; touch phone number and WaLa! it calls the number
I tried Windows phone thinking with Word and Excel on it, the phone would call from the document. NOT! I sent a file to a friend who has and Android phone and it won't do it either.
I'm not fond of Apple, so my question is:
IS THERE ANY PHONE OUT THERE THAT WILL HYPERLINK PHONE NUMBERS FROM A DOCUMENT?
Moderator note: drgerry, no need to shout.
Stick with the iPhone then. But I know with Gmail if you open a doc with cell number on it will launch Android phone apk. I haven't tried that with Window smartphone with Gmail.
I Have AMD Radeon HD 7800 series installed on my PC. The Catalyst Control Center is also installed.
Due to some reasons I need to block the HDMI output of this graphic card. Is it possible ? if yes how?
Heh, what's your reasons? I don't know of any software solution, so you'll have to either not plug anything in or physically damage the HDMI port.
We have a new Dell Precision laptop but cannot get two of our USB flash drives (both Lexar Jumpdrive SecureII Plus) to work. They work on our other computers. We can connect other USB devices to the new laptop, including an older flash drive. Strangely, if the problem drives are plugged in before the computer starts they will open properly - but I cannot remove them and plug them in again later.
They do beep every so often. USB Mass Storage shows up in Device Manager, with the warning exclamation. Disk Management will briefly show a disk (1 or 2) with "no media"; sometimes it will disappear then reappear for a second or so.
I have checked for USB driver updates, uninstalled and reinstalled USB hubs shown in Device Manager (though I'm plugging directly into the side of the laptop). I do not understand what would cause these drives only to not work with this computer only.
I forgot to mention: the laptop is running Windows 7 Pro.
Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.
Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!
A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?
Any luck with this?
I am currently trying to open my laptop so I can clean the processor/graphic card due to over heating. Though I took off all the screws off and no part seems to open... I tried looking on youtube but the models are different. Can someone please help me out?
Similar Asus models might help you even though they are slightly different. You probably have missed a screw hidden in the hard drive or memory/wifi bays...
Recently bought a MS mouse.
Have found that when I move the scroll wheel up or down more than really slowly
a little round icon appears with an up arrow and a down arrow. If the cursor is
above the icon, the page automatically scrolls upward without stopping, and the reverse for the cursor being below that icon. It starts without warning and always goes farther than I want and it goes so fast it's difficult, at best, to react to it before I'm way past what I want to see.
When I click, the thing goes away.
Any way to totally delete this annoying feature other than throwing the mouse away and
getting another Logitech?
Wow I know that feeling. I had a MS mouse that did the same thing. Never could figure out how to stop it from doing that. I search over the internet and never found a answer. Even tried its support site. I ended up getting rid of it and going back to a Logitech.
Good morning everyone,
My database at work has hit a snag. Whenever I open it I get this error (see attach.) Once I click on yes, it still does not open. It just shows the loading circle (Vista) constantly...
A colleague and myself are the only ones who use this database - it holds 17,000+ files that we have to track. Hers works fine, albeit slowly.
Any help out there with this one? Always appreciated.
I am running XP SP 2 on Intel Motherboard DH55TC, Core i5 CPU. UAA High Definition Audio class driver is resulting in high hardware interrupts that uses upto 10 to 12% of CPU. The interrupts goes away if I uninstall UAA Bus driver through Device Manager. But this also disables RealTek audio driver which means I hear sound no more.
I tried updating the UAA driver to Version 1.0a but still the hardware interrupts wont go away. Please help how to fix this issue.
Download the Realtek drivers here Realtek drivers, you want the third one down, Windows 2000, Windows XP/2003(32/64 bits) Driver only (Executable file)
I have been trying to block access to proxy sites without success. What I have done works on some but not all.
I've used a program called Internet Lock to block the port 443, but still I can access the proxy site.
I've put the name of the domain in the list of block sites, still it passes.
I tried to find out the IP address of the website, but I can't find it. Don't know if that would even work anyway.
One proxy site in particular seems to bypass all locks. https://unblockit.cc
If anyone knows how to block such sites, without losing access to gmail, yahoo mail, hotmail, it would greatly be appreciated.
I think www.hidemyass.com will also bypass your locks. You can check its IP address using ping or nslookup. You can also block its ip address using your host file.
Why doesn't my microsoft lifecam work with windows 7? Is there a simple way to fix this problem?
We would need the model number to tell you a reason to why it is not working, and if there is a fix.. If there is no supported driver for windows7, you may need to attempt to use a Windows Vista driver and run it in compatibility mode.
If these options are not possible, you may have to purchase a new one.
Please reply back with the model of the webcam.
Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp
I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.
I have a mixture of domain and workgroup computers on the network and wan to have them all visible in Microsfot Windows Network My Network Place Group - Machine amp Machine are on workgroupA with its not Computer Microsoft in visible Windows Network own subnet and can see each other fine Group - Machine amp Machine are on the domain and can see each other fine Group - Machine amp Machine are also on the domain however on a different subnet and it too can see each other fine If I am on Machine it only sees Machine When I am on Machine it can not see Machine or however it can see Machine The same goes for Machine can t see any other machine except Machine even though its on the domain I have a WINS server in place in Group and it WINS see all the machines as Active Registrations But when I go into My Network Places on the WINS server it only sees machines in Group which are Machine amp Machine DNS entries are setup correctly with correct hostname and IP so I m lost as to what is happening here Sorry of this sounds confusing nbsp
My understanding is that
a given system(A) may be attached to a domain OR
unattached and accessed in a workgroup; mutually exclusive.
That says your request is not possible
I've been playing games for more than 12 years with KB+Mouse and have never used a controller before. Games are becoming more and more controller optimized and I have an Eyefinity setup that would give a better experience with a gamepad, so I decided to get one
I've narrowed my options to Razer Onza TE BF3 Edition (Wired):
And Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows :
They both seem pretty good, but have heard very mixed views on razer products...
Which one is better ?
Do you already own a wireless 360 controller? You can use a 360 controller on your PC if you add one of these. I use it and it works fine.
I recently quot upgraded quot my dsl internet connection which public connections vs Private required a new modem I had to call their tech support for assistance in getting everything up and connected But the connection is now quot public quot instead of private Over the years I ve had to do this many times and they ll always helped me set it up as private I explained my Private vs public connections concerns to the techs and their responses were that the computers are more secure viewing my connection as public because the computers one wired others wireless will automatically turn off any sharing I have set my sharing and discovery settings to off with the exception of p w protect Connection security is WPA -P AES and nothing displays in the list when searching for files amp folders being shared or shared network folders with the exception of the printer I ve always been under the impression that private was more secure than public Are my security concerns founded or am I just in old thought processes and the info I ve received correct Everything I ve read via the Help Private vs public connections amp Support sections of the computers and other places indicates what the techs told me is true Advice please nbsp

hi i want to block certain sites from my computer and the others on the network through one computer using the admin privileges i have how can i do this.
modem==[B]Primary[/B] computer===router---other PCs
the firewall on the Primary will control access of other devices, but it's a pain to configure AND the Primary must be running for anything else to have Internet Service (including even simple email).
the more typical layout
modem===router --- All devices
is far more practical but only the common router is available for access controls and
with the average home-router, it is limited in the number of keywords or urls that can be managed.
Each PC could have its own system32\drivers\etc\hosts file and block access with
a line per site (meaning everything at a given domain) like
but then you need to update all PCs with every change and recycle the DNS on each machine usingipconfig /flushdns
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"while effective, this technique is all-or-nothing, ie all users are denied uniformily
where can i go to identify my computer model and operating system
In the 'Search' box, type dxdiag (Press enter).
If you need to know more than that, download the program at:
I have an Xbox 360, and for a while now I have not been able to interact with in line gaming and hear and communicate back to the other players. My 360 tells me that my NAT type is "Moderate" and it needs to be "Open."
I have gone online and opened the ports that Microsoft says Xbox needs . still I have the NAT problem.
I have Time Warner providing the internet. I have a Ubee modem model # U10co 18.80
I am using a Lynksys Cable / DSL router with 4- port switch model # BEFSR41

I greatly appreciate all help, thank you to all,
I await your replies.
How s it going everyone I started a budget build buying one piece at a time pretty much and finally got everything together Biostar MCP P M mobo AMD Athlon II X Ghz CPU GB x GB DDR eBay Case that came with a w ATX P PSU hoping this is the extent of the problem GB hard drive connected via SATA Random disk drive I had lying around I turned it on a few days ago at the time I only had the mobo hits road block Build aggravating CPU RAM and PSU in and had all of the cases leads hooked up to make sure I was getting power and had everything hooked up right so far and it immediately came on all lights and fans working I got the last few things I needed today and hooked up the Build hits aggravating road block disk drive and hard drive I plugged all my cables in monitor keyboard mouse power cable and went to boot it and nothing The mobo doesn t seem to have a light on it to indicate whether its working or not but I noticed that when I turn it on the power LED on the front panel and the LED in the fan on the side of the case light up for a split second and then immediately cut out No fan movement and no sound from the hard drive Not sure why it would have worked fine the other day and now won t do anything I don t have a PSU to swap out with it right now but am buying one soon Hopefully it s just cheap eBay crap doing it s usual thing but I wanted to double check that there wasn t anything I m missing or not looking for All responses are appreciated especially hasty ones as my laptop s hard drive has maybe a week or so of life left in it lol nbsp
Have a very careful look around and under the motherboard, for short circuits to the case. The metal stand-offs are very easy to miss out, or fit one where it doesn't need to be. It's obvious, but take out graphic card and re-fit, make sure any buttons or catches are clicking into place. Remove RAM boards, and re-fit. Make sure all power cables are plugged into the motherboard, check motherboard manual to see if extra power plugs are needed by the CPU, (4 pin header type), or graphic card.
I was having some trouble with my graphics card and borrowed one to test from a friend, the thing is after i checked the Windows Indexing numbers i was surprised to see the 'smaller memory' card had a higher score and wanted to know how the scores are marked on the graphics side.
My card is a ASUS EAH 4350 1Gb Silent card and had a Graphics score of 3.8 and a Gaming Graphics score of 5.8
Friends card is nVidia Geforce 8600 GT 256MB and has a Graphics score of 5.9 and a Gaming Graphics score of 6.4
I thought mine having larger memory would of been a higher score but apparently not?
memory is only a part of the card more is not always better the other card is better overall for gaming imo.
It took me all day to figure it out but I finally got my printer to share from my PC to my Macbook...but the only problem now is that when I print from my Macbook my printer just prints out random strings - letters and numbers. It also will just constantly spew out these pages - it doesn't stop unless I cancel the print. Doesn't matter what I print. I read on another forum that it might be related to missing fonts, but I can't verify this. Any ideas?
I have an HP Photosmart All-in-One C4200 series printer.
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.
1. Did you follow the printer and software installation instructions exactly?

3. Have you tried their online support?
I recently had an issue with a psc1315 and their online "chat" support walked me through in short order.
Quick question, is there an easy way to read the block size of a drive in Windows 7? I'd imagine there is but a cursory look on google usually ended up as linux commands which do not apply to me.
With NTFS there is no means to set blocksize and the cluster size is adjusted automatically.
With Linux, yes, you set the blocksize and describe the partition in terms of count of blocks.

I got the intellimouse 3.0 and i'm not too impressed
I have the pointer speed set on the fastest setting, but when you are moving the pointer around slowly it jerks in increments of of a millimetre or so, and its quite frustrating when gaming, especially in sniper situations
Is there any way to make it smoother?
If you haven't already, install the intellipoint driver. Although the mouse will work using the native Windows driver, you will have fuller use of its capabilities if you install the latest driver.

What is your budget for this venture?
Was just wondering if anyone could point out the differences between these 2 Powercolor HD 4890 models:
Are there any benefits of using one over the other?
Any inputs are greatly appreciated.
Just the cooling apparatus, no big difference as far as I can tell. Which ever is cheaper would be my choice, but if they are the same price, I would use the non-reference model and hope they made a different model because it's marginally better. It also looks less bulky, something I appreciate.

I am new to Exchange Server 2003 and I have a friend with a network server that I don't know how to re-establish a user to the network. I moved one of his non used computers to this station and now when I try to log in the user I get the error that the name can't be verified because Outlook is not connected or online. This computer used to be online with a different user. Can anyone tell me the steps to check this? Thanks.
You would benefit from the server handbook or an outlook manual... too much to explain here in usable terms, methinks.
I have the above PC and was hoping to increase the Ram size from 2gig to 4 gig.
I had a fruitless chat with Sony tech support (as usual) and they inform me that 2gig is the max for my machine.
The mobo has 4 ram slots 184pin config and at the moment is carrying 4 x 512m memory sticks type PC3200U and was hoping to fit 4x 1gig type PC3200U sticks. Unfortuately the PC takes for ever to boot with 4 x 1gig sticks in.
Can anyone advise if this machine is at its max of 2gig or can the BIOS be pursuaded to see 4gig?
Hopefully I can workout the new 4 x 1gig sticks config, if not I will have to return them to the supplier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hmmm....guess my enquiry does not attract the same attention as game machines and building new computers...did get 63 viewers though but no enlightenment.
I have a HP laptop keyboard that isn't responding correctly. It displays a "1q 2w 3e 4r 7u 8i 9o 0p" on the screen when the respective letter is typed. I undestand how the "Fn" key and the "Num Lock" key works but this is not the issue. Any advice to remedy this would be appreciated. I've had this laptop for 18 months and it just started doing this. I can't seem to find anyone on the internet that is having the exact same problem. They only have what appears to be a similar issue but not this exact number letter combination.
Have you tried using a USB external keyboard?
I ordered an nvidia fx5200 and it came with some funky dms-59 output connector...tried to check the nvidia site and they say "they don't manufacture cards, only chips" which seems totally wrong, as my card says "nvidia" right on it
anyway, I need a vga connection - which everything I could find said the fx5200 has - but this card only has the dms-59 connector (which seems very rare)
anyone know of a listing of fx5200 model numbers, so you know what to order and what you will get?...I ordered this from ascendtech (which may be part of the problem)
They make the GPU but not the actual card. Are you sure that isn't a DVI connector? Did your card come in a retail box? A DVI to VGA adapter usually comes with it but if not, you can buy them separately.

The Ac is hooked up to it and battery has a full charge on it but when you push the power botton the green led comes on for about 2 sec's then goes off and thats it..no sound, no screen just the led for 2 sec's and poof. Any Idea's?
Remove the battery and AC Adapter. Press and hold the power button for 2 minutes. Plug in the AC adapter and see if the computer turns on normally. If not, the laptop will have to be serviced
I just bought a mini notebook (HP) and while installing and setting up, I notice my wireless router is setup for non secure. I anm leaving for Europe tomorrow and really need fast set-up to secure network. I called HP and OMG what a disaster.

Setting up a secure network is fairly easy, unfortunately the steps vary by router manufacturer, and model.
If you tell us what router you have, we'll try to help. If you require immediate assistance and nobody can give you ana answer in time, try visiting tech support page of your router.

I am connected to a network domain. When I go to My network places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network>Domain I can see all networked computers when I am wired in but when I connect wirelessly I cannot. I use a "Wireless access point" connected to my firewall router. I have tried disabling the wireless firewall and assigning a static IP. I am logged into the domain but the only way to can view the other computers on the network is to connect through a wired connection. I'm thinking it has to be a setting in my Wireless router but I cannot figure it out.

You probably won't need any drivers to make it work. There should be a 1/8 inch audio cable that plugs into your monitor from the computer. Usually the port are green, in case you don't know which it is.
Please help me folks, I'm on borrowed time today.
I had to reformat my computer thanks to a handful of Trojans and of course, I am missing the Ethernet driver to connect. In the past, I had a friend set me up, but he never told me how to do it and he's gone in basic training so I can't ask for his help today.
I have a custom-built Compaq HP
I will have Windows XP HOME installed when I get the cash.
What I need is help figuring out where to look to find the model number to install the correct driver. I have tried the HP website and it does not work; My driver is built into the motherboard.
I currently have Windows XP Professional for English Students, it's my father's OS
"I have a custom-built Compaq HP"...
Custom built by HP or a friend? See if you can tell us the model of the motherboard. Give us any name or numbers you find
I noticed when I turned on my computer today it said it was unable to install some drivers. I look in my device manager and it has the yellow exclamation mark by the following:

My system is a Dell XPS 630i on Vista 32bit home premium.
I immediately went to the Dell site and installed all the latest drivers and the bios as well but this did not fix the problem.
I am able to connect to the internet. Is this a problem and if so can somone wizard help me troubleshoot it?
Cheers in advance
Delete these drivers in the Device Manager and restart your system. See if Vista reinstalls these automatically

My Microsoft Habu mouse freezes when at some game servers, I play mainly DFX and in some servers where plenty of action is going on, the "nice" mouse freezes for several seconds, about 5 to 10 seconds....specially if I swirl it.
My PC is home built with an Intel Q6750, 22 inches samsung lcd monitor, G 15 Logitech KB, 4 G memory Mushkin, GForce 280 Video card, nfORCE 780I MOBO,Thermaltake 750 PSU, several fans and a V1 cpu cooler. I run Windows XP Pro 32.
Any idea why this is happening, the driver version is 2.12 and firmware is 2.03 on the mouse. I am about to dump it to the garbage can, any suggestion about a real good and reliable mouse, cost is no issue...

My son uses Ventrilo for online gaming, however, there is one server I would like to block his access to because it's a bit..."mature" for him. I have the IP address of the server as well as the port, I wonder if it would be possible to block it via the router, or the firewall running on his PC. The router is a Linksys and the current firewall is ZoneAlarm. I wouldn't be against changing to another firewall if that is necessary.
If you are running windows xp, you can:
Open the folder windows\system32\drivers\etc
Open the "Hosts" file using notepad
There should already be an entry of "127.0.0.1 localhost" in there
Just type in "<ip address of vent server> localhost" (without quotes)
If you have the dns address of the server then type "127.0.0.1 <server name>" (again without quotes)
This will prevent his computer from accessing that server.
I'm using a Westell 7500. Is there any way to block a wired connection without unplugging the cable. I've looked on the router for the option, but can't find it. I am in not way an advanced user.
just go to your network connections and then disable the 10/100 Ethernet card on your PC
when i try to change the font in excel or word it freezes and then crashes. but it doesn't do this with power point or one note. i have reinstalled it, deleted the normal.dot thing but nothing seems to work. and yes i have done the Microsoft diagnostics but it says that it should be working fine. so it would be nice if some 1 knew why this happens and how to fix it
any 1? come on there must be some 1 that has had this happen to them and know a fix for this
We have a new WSUS server running WSUS 3.0 sp1 on Windows Server 2008. I'm new to this so I was wondering if anybody would know it's it's capability be to deploy non-Microsoft installs and upgrades. I'm specificially thinking about Adobe products (mostly Adobe Acrobat). We will need to upgrade all of the computers on our network from version Acrobat 8 to version 9 pretty soon. Will there be a way to do that? Will there be a way to deploy updates when they come out? Or just one or the other? Is that pretty much up to the individual vendor? Do they have to make a special package that we put on the server? Or can we make one ourselves? Would that be hard?

If no one can help me with my problem, can anyone point me in the right direction on where I can resolve it. (Other than Microsoft Customer Support that is, that's definitely a last resort).
I would like to block access to a specific web site in Firefox and IE7, but I don't want the person to know that I have blocked the access (my friend just can't get off some sites and I can't be rude to tell him to f** off because I have to work) so if I use content blocker he gets the alert...
So, is there any program I could use to block off access to some sites in all programs without the person using them knowing it has been blocked...

I have a DELL Latitude D620 laptop. I need to replace the HDD in it and I found another HDD with a slightly different model #. The model # in my laptop is Hitachi HTS722080K9A300. The one I want to replace it with is Hitachi HTS7210809SA00. Bothe are SATA, 7200 RPM. Will this work for me?
Just about any can be used, as long as it's the correct physical size
By the way, here's how to update all your Dell Drivers (just thought I'd throw that in )
So i got this free computer without a hard drive to run a bot on, I got the hard drive and now i cant do anything because of this video card it came with. Its a nvidia riva tnt2 model64/model 64 pro. Iv looked everywhere to download the driver but i cant find anything. Im running windows xp on the computer and when i tried the nvidia site it said it cant find the hardware, when i tried some other site, it said the download was meant onlt for windows xp x64. is there anywhere i can get this driver for windows xp and if so, where can i find it?
Does the motherboard have on-board video too? If so, use the on-board video until you get the TNT Riva driver sorted
Just need help figure it out what model of
IBM laptop i got here. Showing some images...

I currently have a pc that was windows 2000 that is now not working. I recently put a new hard drive into the pc and it currently store all my music (itunes) and document flies. I would like to if it is possible to take the hard drive out and connect it to my other computer externally. The only other issue is the other computer is running on vista. Is it possible to do this?
Yes, you can take that hard drive out of the 2k machine and read it just fine in Vista. What you can't do is take your OS drive from 2k and boot another machine with it, but I don't think that is what you were asking.
what type of IPs are these?? public or private IP??
please put little information on this..and what else can we tell by looking at above IP addresses?
That is a public IP address - private address ranges are
10.0.0.0 ? 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 ? 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 ? 192.168.255.255
ZeroConf addresses start with 169.254
Thanks to everyone that takes the time to read this. I want to replace my OEM MSI MS-6577 mobo that came with my HP for another version of the MSI MS-6577 mobo but the new one would have an AGPx4 slot and the current one only has PCI slots. I read that replacing the motherboard on OEM systems with Windows XP like mine has, will cause big problems unless it for the exact same make and model motherboard. In my situation, it is the exact same make and model but a different version of the mobo that would have an additional AGP slot. Would this give me BSOD or would the swap go smoothly? I am also hoping not to have to reinstall Windows XP without having to go buy a copy as I read you can't do that off recovery discs with OEM Windows XP builds. Thank you everyone again.:grinthumb
The problem would be with Microsoft
I believe you could put a different version of motherboard on there, heck, you could put an entirely different make of motherboard if you wanted as long as it fits the case's form factor. Simply, the screw holes on the motherboard have to align with the holes on the case.
The trouble you will run into is with Microsoft. Your copy of XP is associated with the serial number, model, and make of your present motherboard, and it's recorded in Microsoft's database. That's what happens when you activate a Microsoft product. The operating system or software will get your motherboard's information and record it. Now here comes the problem...
If you put in a new motherboard, the operating system on your hard drive is going to look up your previous motherboard's information when it boots up. If it sees a new motherboard, it will say, "I'm not associated with you, so I must not be licensed with you!" and it will tell you to contact Microsoft or buy a new copy of Windows.
What you have to do then is call Microsoft and ask them if you can associate your copy of Windows with a new motherboard. They will want to know why. Usually, they will only do that if your motherboard failed, exploded, or somehow became destroyed so you had to replace it. I don't know about motherboard upgrades. To Microsoft, each and every motherboard is a separate computer, and you are only licensed for one computer.
So, what I would do if I were you is to call Microsoft and ask them if you can move your license to a new motherboard before you do anything else.
I was hoping that someone could give me a digit number for a Dell Inspiron E laptop battery A numbers Dell Battery year ago I had issues with it recognizing the ac adaptor At that time I replaced the battery thinking that was it However it was not and after the on line chat with Dell they determined the mother board needed replaced Now the battery led on the Dell Battery numbers computer goes off after being only plugged in for a few seconds I have two AC adapters so I tried the other Dell Battery numbers one-same thing If I unplug and plug the AC several time I can see the battery charge percentage going up If the led is not on the percentage will not change The reason for my request is that the laptop is still on warranty and I am pretty sure it is the mother board again I went to Dell s chat line knowing that we would get so far and they would want to replace it However when they found out that I did not have a Dell battery they said there was nothing more they could do until I put a Dell battery back into it and then they could help me with a more in depth diagnosis Thanks for any help nbsp
I think those *****s have it indexed under 'Dell Inspiron 6000/9400/E1705' - you would NEVAR find it.
Hi..im trying to install a video card on my other computer and for some reson it just wont work..It was working fine untill i reinstalled windows xp.Now I get a black screen with a big green block in the middle. Now for some reson though it will show my desktop picture but there is no start menu or anything else. I can right click on the screen and try to hit properties but cant see the settings unless i move the monitor wire to the top slot on the comp. I have also disabled the onboard graphics and even uninstalled it.
Its a old video card but i know it works..Nvidia geforce 5500 fx
I have installed the newest driver and even 4-5 old ones and none will work right.
I even updated my bios but still nothing. Thanks for any help here
When you reinstalled Windows XP, did you reinstall all of the motherboard drivers too?
Ok, so i got kinda a blue screen yeah . I tried to start a video chat on msn, well the computer decided not to like that. Anyway, now i get this message every time i try to install my sound drivers
"Microsoft bus should be loaded into your system before installing realteck HD audio driver"
Using onboard sound.
Googled, read, looked around, ran windows repair, help? pls? thanks guys
after googleing, i found 2 potential solutions:
Right click on My Computer, go to Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. Look for any yellow bubbles next to the devices. If you see any, right click on it and click install driver. Select the option to find the drivers yourself, the next screen should allow you to browse and navigate to that folder. If the drivers still don't install then go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com in IE and get any hardware updates you can get. The MS bus driver might be an update you need to get.Click to expand...
I installed WinXP once more, installed SP2 and then the Sound Driver.
Again it didnt work.
Then I remembered that i actually had changed a sound card setting in the bios. (No i did not diasble the soundcard )
The case i have installed this Mboard in has a front pannel.
And the Mboard has a front panel connector.
To connect the front pannel I had turned to the manual to get the rigtht pins set up.
The manual states on page 2-31 that:
"The default setting for this connector is legacy AC'97 audio, if you want to use the High Definition (Azalia) audio features, set the AC97 & Azalia Link A in the BIOS to Azalia."
Well this case does not use a high-definition audio front panel, so of course i had diasbled the Azalia Link i Bios.
(It was enabled in the Bios even when the manual said that the default setting was AC'97, ow well ... )
For "fun" i just tried to put it back to the setting it was when i installed the Mboard (Azalia), and then, bingo, the sound card worked in windows.Click to expand...
seems like a very rare problem.
Recently I bought a game and tried to load it on to my computer but was getting this error
the application failed to initialize (0xc0000006)
after checking the event manager it showed an error event of:
the device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block.
I have windows xp so i went to the hard drive and did a scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, but after going through the motions it gives me the error of
Windows was unable to complete the disk check.
My question is after uninstalling and reinstalling the game it continues to give me the error. How can i install the game where it doesn't use the bad blocks? Is this possible?
Thanks for the help!
Once you get a "bad block" on your HardDrive you will usually get more over time (and sometimes immediately!)
You are best to backup to external media (CD; DVD; External Flash Drive; or External HardDrive)
And then purchase a new internal HardDrive
Mount it back inside the computer
Re-install all Windows Security Updates
Re-install all drivers
Re-install your game
Lots of valuable information in that file I'd like to access. I was able to create a new Outlook file in safe mode so I guess the program is OK.
It was suggested to me recently the cause may have been due to me having Microsoft Service Pack 1 at the time. I had not updated to Service Pak 2 (which I now believe has been updated to Service Pak 3). Has anyone had experience with this and, if so, do you think there's a chance that if I update my Service Pak that I might still have a chance of recovering the data I had in my original Outlook file?
I dont think just upgrading to service pack 3 would do any good.
May be you need some more luck there.
Hope you get the help you need
Been trying to solve problems with my graphics card for ages think i've finally found it

That is not a normal thing imo.
Make sure your Advanced setting for Plug and Play OS is set to Yes.
Then, under Power, set the ACPI APIC Support to Disabled for now.
Boot and see what, if anything, changes.
i have had these speakers for about two years now, i know bolivar speaker works was bought by JBL back in the 70's and they stopped making speaker in like 85. in one of the speakers the tweeter isn't working, i took it out to make should it was pluged in and tired to see if it worked in the other speaker but it didn't so i need a replacement and i cant find one nowhere
Did you just try to find one by JBL that was the same size? You might wanna check on that... I will check a little and let you know if I find anything, but your best bet would probably be to look for a same size tweeter and replace both sides so they sound the same...
I just bought a Razer Reclusa keyboard and the only problem I'm having is that it does not "power up" so to speak until after post. If I needed to get into the BIOS I could press [del] a million times and nothing would happen. Once windows starts up, it works fine. Is this just the way the keyboard is? I'd appreciate any info.
Haven't looked up that keyboard, but I think I know what it is (the fix) anyway.
You need to get into your BIOS (with another keyboard, ideally PS/2 if you have the connection)
Then set Enable for USB Keyboard/Mouse support
I think that may be a bit of a mind teaser to do, but I'm sure you'll work it out
Well I was in the market Zune Microsoft 30GB for a new mp player as I broke my old Creative Zen MicroPhoto and ended up buying a Zune on ebay they are not actually available for sale in stores in Australia First Microsoft Zune 30GB off I was expecting a much larger box for it to arive in I was kind of suprised that it was as small as it was not that its really small though The layout of the box is kinda neat though Headphones that came with it are pretty good for default earbuds they also are magnetic and have small little clips on the back so you can clip together back to back Nifty and rather handy I have found Video quality is very nice for an mp player I think Although I dont use it for video just music I have watched the little videos that came on it I thought they were very nice quality It has WiFi novelty maybe but not a feature I really care about and think I will ever use Interface looks nice and performs well although I do prefer the interface of my old Zen MicroPhoto I am dissapointed that you cant use the device as a portable hard drive I have read that you can do a couple of changes to your windows registry and it will show up as a portable hard drive But I dont really care about this I have flash drives that are sufficient for my portable storage needs Its not perfect and has no extraordinary features but If you are in the market for a mp player and don t like iPods as I do consider a Zune If anyone has any questions about the Zune I will be happy to help you as best I can nbsp
Did it come with the new firmware ? When the second generation of Zune players came out, it was officially possible to upgrade old Zune players to the second generation firmware.
I have a evga 8800 gts 320mb graphics card in my new build. I download the newest set of drivers from their site (175.xx) and I install with driver cleaner pro in safe mode, and after the reboot, they look like a commodore 64. Awful. I need to reinstall the drivers that came with the card to restore my graphics. I also can't upgrade to win xp sp2, and have had trouble with installing certain apps.

Didn't a driver disk show up in the box with the card?
I have a ATI Radeon 9200 AGP graphics card however it only has hardware acceleration when i install Microsofts drivers. When i install the ATI Catylist drivers then dxidag shows accelaration greyed out. I have an AGP 3.0 slot.
Is there a specific driver that i am suppose to install as this card was given to me second hand?
What could be the cause of this?
Fully uninstall the ATI program
You may also use the ATI uninstall program to be very thorough.
Download the most up to date ATI program(drivers) for your card
Re-install and test again.

What kind of graphics slot has your pc got!!!!
I have a HP Media Center m7640n and would like to overclock it a small amount and want to do it safely. Anyone who has had experience with this kind of system your comments would be appreciated.
Welcome to Techspot! I have never used that particular system but it is likely that the BIOS is locked, making overclocking impossible.
ntune, 3dmark every thing says "CPU:AMD processor model unknown"
Why does this happen, how do I fix it?(processor under specs)
Any help would be great.
you will need to post more info.
also try CPU-Z
This is my first posting. I purchased five ASUS P4PE motherboads equipped computers as tool controllers in our laboratory at a semiconductor electrical laboratory. Four exhibited passive heat sinks falling off the Intel 845PE Memory Controller Hub (MCH) otherwise known as northbridge controller. This problem is identical to the Tech Spot posting on January 24,2005. Obviously, ASUS has a manufacturing solder defect in the through motherboard clips that permit the passive heat sink to be attached to the motherboard. One heat sink fell off and shorted the adjacent ASUS accelerated graphics port (AGP card). A problem case code has been opened with ASUS. This case code number is WTM2007030449417942
Did you ever get anywhere with asus on this issue? I just had the same thing happen to me and it appears to have fried my board. They told me since it is so far out of warranty that there is nothing they can do. Kinda sucks because they clearly had a manufacturing flaw with the solder/heatsink clamps.
please help me:
i want that a USB drive(flash drive) with specified serial numbers to be attached on my computer.
Have a look at the content of www.devicelock.com - is this what you are looking for? The only other option is a mechanical lock - these are available I think from www.lindy.com
I suffered few times from power failure. Everytime the computer restarted, it ran chkdsk and i was able to conitinue working. Since the last time i had power failure, it ran chkdsk, but it last almost forever, eventaully i was able to work. Ever since then, everytime i start my computer, it runs a long and tedious chkdsk. I went to the Event log and so the Error log :
'The device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block'.Does it mean that my HD will die soon ? Is there any way to fix the bad block ? I'm having samsung 80G HD. I wasnt able to find any utility from the manufacture.
Run the disk checking utility (chkdsk) and tell it to scan for bad sectors. This will mark the sector bad so that Windows will avoid it in the future. After running the check, see which file the bad sector was in - the file is corrupt and you should replace it.
The Samsung hard disk utilities are called shdiag and hutil.
Any one here knows how to hardware reset the Westell Model 327W Verizon DSL Modem. I want to hardware reset all the software parameters that I put in like mac addresses acceptances which allow only certain pc to be connected.

I bought a gigaware webcam (model 25-297) and i can't seem to install its driver into my computer (windows XP). Everytime i attempt to do that, the installshield will run for sometime and suddenly it just disappear with only the icon on the bar next to the start menu. When i go to the windows task manager, it appears to be there but there seems to be no activity done by the program. Any Help would be GREATLY appreciated, i have NO idea whats wrong or what i need to do to fix this problem. Thanks in advance.
Return it and get something of a little better quality. I'm sure even if you got it installed you wouldn't be happy with it anyway. Get something like a Logitech PC camera
the new AMD RV670 chip is suppose to have better balance of power, price, and power consumption. it will have the same chip structure as the RV600 but will support much more, running at X10.1 and powering HDMI and HDPC.
the two available versions will be called Gladiator and Revival. the gladiator will have 512 MB GDDR4 graphics memory. the GPU clocked all the way to 825MHz, and the memory frequency of 2.4GHz. On the otherharnd the Revival will have 256/512MB GDDR3 graphics memory, and the GPU frequency of 750MHz and memory frequency of 1.8GHz.
overall I think this is the next gen. graphics card for those hard core gamers
what do you think?
I've personally never have seen or tryed the current gen radeons (2000's) but from what I've heard their not exactly on everybodys good side. Thats just what i've heard, so I guess if they don't go the route of the 2000's then all should be good. (Note: I like ATI, I only own ATI cards)

The rest of your hardware sounds good, you'll need more than a 250W psu though.

Try going to your device manager and click on display adapters
Today I looked through the Event Manager Utility of Windows XP and I've seen this error there, about 15 times.
The device, \Device\Harddisk2\D, has a bad block.
Does this mean that I have a bad on my HDD or could it be some error, like windows can't read a corrupted file?
Backing it up and reformatting it may help. Before that, error check it.
I just need to know if the Trackball Mouse cables Microsoft and compatible? USB cable in a Microsoft button optical mouse ends in an internal plastic plug I have a Microsoft Microsoft Mouse and Trackball cables compatible? button optical trackball with a broken wire than can t be repaired When I looked online to buy a replacement only then did I lean Microsoft stopped making selling their optical trackball s WTF so there are no replacement parts out there to be had They are so rare now even broken trackballs fetch a premium I opened it up to see if I could fix it and the cable ends in a simple five-connector plug so fixing my trackball couldn t be easier If only I could find a replacement cable Microsoft still makes sells their button optical mice but doesn t sell parts If it uses the same cable I figure I can buy a cheap one just for the cord and use it in my trackball Anyone out there ever open up their Microsoft button optical mouse that can confirm for me if the cable just plugs in inside nbsp
Go ahead and try the cable... I hope the wire color codes are the same. I use a wireless Logitech. Maybe it's time for you to switch to a wireless mouse

you can disassembly the LCD assembly and you'll see the PN of your backlight module. however,you should know, that there's can be absence of BACKLIGHT_ENA signal,which coming from the MB, thus, the inverter module replacing won't helps.
I have two Dell DIMs 8300. One has 1Gb and 40GB HD ATA and the other 512Kb RAM & 120Gb SATA HD. Is it possible for me to remove RAM from a slot in the 40GB and insert it into an available socket on the mobo to increase the RAM in the 120Gb without causing problems?
(ESD precaution would be taken into account of course)
Sure its possible, if it actually USES the same type of ram. The worst it should do is fail to post correctly. ESD ommitting of course
