Preferred Solution: HP Inspiron crashes, not sure of cause, advice needed

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.)

"HP Inspiron crashes"...

You must mean Dell Inspiron, don't you? What is the model or service tag number?

hello
I hope someone can help me. I currently work as a Field Support Engineer for the Post Office, but I will soon be changing jobs and working for a local secondary school as Network Manager.
There appears to have been no documenting of the network as it has grown, as many different people have been administering at different times.
I would like your views on how to approach this situation, causing the least amount of disturbance to the network but enabling me to gather as much info as possilbe.

many thanks to you all in advance

Greetings

My advice: Go in on a weekend and re-install everything

Ok, now onto more practical advice:

Firstly, get a picture of the network. This means getting a floorplan of the buildings, walking around going from room to room, and writing down the number of PCs, the software OS (and service pack level, if applicable) installed, current hardware installed and the router they connect to.

Do the same for your servers. It is vitally important to know what hardware is in each PC, and what the specs of the PC are.

Next, you need to get a Logical map of your network. This is a picture of the IP addresses of the Routers, printers and servers (and workstations, if you are not using DHCP), and where the different subnet's are situated. You need to see what services are installed on your Servers (WINS, DNS, DHCP, IIS, Proxy etc). At this time, it is also a good idea to get a list of the accounts on the Server. You need to see which accounts are being used to run certain services, and make sure that only Service accounts are running those services. Next, you need to take away any user accounts that no longer correspond to people using the system (ie. if Mr Bradshaw last worked at the school 5 years ago, it is time to delete his user account). Ditto with any user home drives assigned to defunct users.

Lastly, you need to compile a list of discepancies. Look at your list created in the forst step, and get an idea of what a standard PC is (ie: Standard PC = at least Pent 200, minimum 32 Megs RAM, 4 Gig HD, CD-ROM, 100 Meg Network Card, DHCP IP address, WINS enabled, Win98 First Edition, Office 97 SP2, IE5.0, McAfee 4 {Scan Engine 4.0.26 Definition file 4038}). Once you have decided on what is the current base, you need to see which PCs are below that spec: if all the workstations in one room have 32 Megs of RAM except for one PC which has 16 Megs, it needs to be noted. If all PCs use DHCP, except for one room, which are all on a different subnet, and have static IP addresses, it needs to be noted. Once you have a list of discrepancies, you should talk to your supervisor: First about bringing those PCs that are woefully under spec to some semblance of usability, and then see where you can upgrade slowly the software (get McAfee or Norton Antivirus up to the latest scan engine and virus definition files, Office to the latest service pack etc).

This might take a while, but use the time to try and clean out all the bumpf (old programs, data, etc - just make sure that it is junk before you get rid of it) that accumulates especially from the server.

I hope that gets you started

A:Need advice for soldering Dell Inspiron 1501 motherboard

Can you post an photo of your soldering?I'm not sure if I can help, but an image might help us understand what you are looking at.

I solder quite often, and have done repair work such as you are attempting. I do know it is easiest to when there is only one solder joint to contend with. One joint such as a wire you can pull the wire as you heat and once hot enough the wire will pull free. Several solder joints are a different ballgame. There are two choices, and one choice I've never had the equipment to do so. Heating every join at the same time, can be done by blowing hot air across the component. I've never had the equipment for it, so I've been left with the choice of cleaning each joint one at a time. I noticed this is how you were attempting solder removal.

Solder tips must be clean and prepped for use. A trashy tip can cause an insulated barrier and prevent heating of the solder joint. Always tin your tips with a tad of solder before you ever use it the first time. If you don't tin your tip, you will always have trouble using it.
Pre-heat the tip so you are not waiting and possibly causing damage to the solder joint and/or component. Spending too much time on a solder joint is never a good idea. You want to heat the joint as quickly as possible without heating everything else.
On removal with the wick, the wick needs to be just as clean as the solder tip or it will not absorb any of the solder. A little bit of soldering flux may help the wick absorb. But if the wick has already been used, it is doubtful it will work again.
Soldering flux is always helpful when soldering joints back in place anyway. Especially on surfaces that have not been soldered previously. It doesn't take much, a finger smear is plenty sufficient. however on multi-strand wire you will want enough flux to absorb into the strands of the wire.
Don't bubble your joint, all you need is a slim joint connection. More solder will do nothing for the joint. Watch for solder beads, that can unexpectedly drop off your tip cause shorts.
One last piece of advice, soldering is no different than welding metal. Solder will not stick unless both surfaces are heated. If you only heat one side of the joint, solder will not stick to the other side. It's usually a better to try and heat the larger surface first as the smaller heats up more quickly. It's the timing of both surfaces that you want heated at the same time.

Hey guys,
After 6 months of use, the left hinge on my 7559 has decided to give up. 
I've followed official manual to open the laptop and see what wrong.
Here's a photo and a video showing how 2 of the 3 screws holding the left hinge have failed:

drive.google.com/open
As you can see, the yellow copper thingies that hold the screws (not sure how they're properly called) have been pulled out of the bottom case. Only one screw that goes through fan and into palmrest is still holding up.
Could you give any advice on the best way to repair it? Would I need to get a replacement bottom case or is there way to just get new yellow copper thingies and put them in the sockets in the bottom case?

Cheers!

Hi all,

Could you give some advice,
Whilst looking around for a reason and possible cure for the slowing down of my computer,ie: Very slow boot and also takes ages sometimes for websites to load from desktop icons.
I do the regular disk clean and defrag. but it`s getting very frustrating just waiting for pages to load.
Anyway as I say,while looking around I came across PC Pitstop Optimiser at a price of $30 which say`s it will clean up my computer of any nasties and also improve performance.

My question being,"Is it worth it,or just a waste of money,and is there another way of curing my problems ?.

I am fairly new and not very computer literate,so any answers will have to be put in very simple terms.
Thanks for any help you can give,it would be much appreciated,

A:Advice needed

Even if you were to update any drivers from the makers site ie: for the Realtek or the Nvidia, this is NOT the cause of the system running slowly. It may, if the drivers have a slight enhancement for the Nvidia make RCT (whatever it is - I am not a gamer) play a little smoother OR if by the slighest chance there was a bug in the particular driver you are using stop the crash with that game. However that is extemely unlikely.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_197.45_whql.html
Here is the link for the latest driver for the 7300SE.
CHECK when you get to the link that it has stayed ON THE CORRECT page, if it has not simply select GeForce and series 7 and your Operating System ie: XP presumably 32 bit so that is just XP as against XP 64 bit and then check that the driver offered is for the 7300SE.
Try this driver first, BUT I will be amazed if it solves anything.
Post back, when you have tried the driver.
You may EDIT out all the dxdiag log, it is NOT required, whoever is helping will ask for the info ONLY as it is needed.

Hi there.

Every couple of months or so I've run into this virus and each time it is getting harder to get rid of (the last time I had to restore to factory settings and even then it wasn't fully gone). I was wondering if there is an anti-virus programme that'll block this from downloading itself onto my machine before it's too late?

I currently have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Windows Security Essentials, SUPERantispyware and Hitman Pro all installed. Is this too many and is there any better alternatives out there?

A:Advice Needed

Choosing a security toolkit with anti-virus, firewall and anti-malware programs is a matter of personal preference, your needs, your technical ability and experience, features offered, user friendliness, ease of updating (and upgrading to new program release), ease of installation/removal, available technical support from the vendor and price. Other factors to consider include detection rates and methods, scanning engine effectiveness, how often virus definitions are updated, the amount of resources the program utilizes, how it may affect system performance and what will work best for your system. A particular anti-virus that works well for one person may not work as well for another. You may need to experiment and find the one most suitable for your use and your system. There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone and there is no best anti-virus. For more specific information to consider, please read Choosing Your Anti-virus Software and How to choose a firewall.No single product is 100% foolproof and can prevent, detect and remove all threats at any given time. Just because one anti-virus detected threats that another missed, does not mean its more effective. The security community is in a constant state of change as new infections appear. Security vendors use different scanning engines and different detection methods such as heuristic analysis or behavioral analysis which can account for discrepancies in scanning outcomes. Depending on how often the anti-virus database is updated can also account for differences in threat detections. Further, each vendor has its own definition of what constitutes malware and scanning your computer using different criteria will yield different results. The fact that each program has its own definition files means that some malware may be picked up by one that could be missed by another. Thus, a multi-layered defense using several anti-spyware products (including an effective firewall) to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense, safe computing and safe surfing habits provides the most complete protection.Important Tip: Always remember that security begins with personal responsibility.If you keep getting reinfected you may want to read How Malware Spreads - How did I get infected which explains the most common ways malware is contracted and spread.

I am running Windows 10. I currently attach a hdmi cable from laptop to tv. Is it possible to stream one thing from laptop onto tv screen and simultaneously surf the net using laptop monitor?

Thanks

A:Help and or advice needed

If the laptop supports multi monitor setup it should work, you could play something, e. g. a movie, on one screen (tv) and on the other (laptop) you could still do something else like web browsing. Just connect the tv to the laptop, go to display settings and try to set it up as two monitors.

I was cleaning out my computer today of dust and removed my fan from my CPU in Needed CPU/Fan Advice order to clean it well Since I have put it back on I keep CPU/Fan Advice Needed getting the overheating signal from my CPU when it is under a load CPU/Fan Advice Needed My BIOS has the warning sound set at C right now When I go into the BIOS I can watch the temp rise and fall depending on the load What I need to know is what the little glob of sticky grey stuff does that sits between my CPU and my fan I figure that I need more of it now that I took the two apart but don t know what it is called or how much of it to use The amount used when I first built the computer was just what was provided with the CPU and those directions were followed I have read a few posts here that indicate that I should buy something that I then spread over the entire CPU and I wanted to know if that is accurate What does that goop really do Thanks so much for your quick reply nbsp

A:CPU/Fan Advice Needed

That gloop as you call it is known as thermal compound, and if you have completely removed your heatsink from the cpu then you should really clean off the old compound and add new. To clean it of the heatsink and/or cpu you should use a NON-acetone based cleaning solution and a cotton wool bud.when it comes to adding new compound then you should place a small ammount in the centre of the cpu (how much depends on what cpu your using) but this ammount should when compressed between cpu and heatsink be enough to cover the chip only and not the pcb that its on. When replacing the heatsink make sure that it is on correctly as an improper contact will cause a overheating problem. this is what the thermal compound is for to make sure that you have a full contact between cpu and heatsink therefore making heat dissipation through the heatsink possible, ie:- better compound=better contact=better heat dissipation=better cooling=more efficient cpu

A:Advice Needed

Hi Scott Is it possible for you to list us your computer specs? Maybe publish a Speccy snapshot if you know how (otherwise I can give you the instructions). Also, do you mean a new "SSID"? To reset your network back to default, you would simply have to reset your modem, router or modem/router, whatever you are using and then set it back up.

When he opened the file he recieved the message "F#*k you and everybody else!" Not what he was expecting obviously. So now his administrative powers have been taken away from him, he cannot access his ctrl panel. When he opens windows he cannot close them because he does not have the proper admin rights. To top it all off there is a series of question marks(???????) beside the time and date on his task bar.

I have a firewall, which was recently behind a router. I have taken away the router. The firewall does the routing job. Do I need anti virus software and anti spyware software installed on the firewall?

Thanks,

A:Advice needed

I'd recommend a good anti virus program since a lot of virus's come from email attatchments and web sites a firewall may not catch. Spyware and adware programs are always good to have. Good Luck

My brother has promised to give me his 60gb Intel SSD when he upgrades his system soon. I've got a Corsair SSD for my OS/boot drive now and two mechanical drives for games, pagefile and a few small apps.

Should I use the 60gb SSD for SSD caching to speed up my games/pagefile mechanical drive? How much of a performance boost would I be getting with a 60gb SSD for caching?

Would it be better if I just put pagefile and a few small apps there? Will pagefile activity wear out the SSD too quickly? (I should point out that I plan to get more RAM soon so I can put pagefile on a RAM disk, so the second option just might be a temporary setup.)

Could you guys maybe suggest other options as to how I could make best use of the extra SSD on my machine?

Thanks in advance for your help.
 

A:SSD advice needed

I know this does not answer your question but you may find it interesting.

If you have plenty of RAM to run all your applications, you wouldn't really need a pagefile. Pagefiles are needed when the system requires more memory than physically in the machine.

I have 8GB memory and rarely see 3GB usage. Several years ago I ran Windows XP without a pagefile on 512MB memory for a long time. One day I actually ran out of memory and the system crashed. Ever since this day I have set a small pagefile just to prevent a system crash. I currently have a 1GB pagefile to assist my 8GB of physical memory if ever needed.

With all this said, I'm not sure how much a pagefile is even used on a system that does not run out of physical memory. If the pagefile is never used then the write cycles for SSD will not be effected. I'm also interested in knowing pagefile usage statistics for a system that has plenty of physical memory.

When i do a virus scan, i get the message "C\windows\installer\6c7411.msi - The file is signed with a broken digital signature, issued by: Sun Microsystems". It doesnt say that this is a virus, it just shows up as something that was found. Any info on something that shows up like this will be appreciated....what should i do with this file?
thanks .... Herbie
 

A:Advice Needed

A signature verifies that the package is made by a known vendor. If it is broken, then somebody could have modified the package without authorization from the vendor. I would just delete it.

Yes you can. But then you have to activate the product online, or by phone, to microsoft.

Hi,

Finally, it is time for me to get a new PC. I will build it myself. But I have no idea what to get...
I need a PC for video editing and rendering (preferably HD), MS Office, Adobe Photoshop/Premiere Elements v7, and surfing the web (firefox). I also like to overclock.
I would like the PC to have at least 500GB storage (WD), preferably 4GB RAM, and I'd like the PC to be cool and quiet.
I would like the price to be as low as possible (less than $600?).
[For simplicity, the prices should be in USD. I will search for the products myself. In Israel, some components aren't available.]
I do not game on my PC.
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

According to your specs that board is compatible with the memory you specify but only at 4Gb but there are options for 8Gb

Hello

I'm having a problem with Microsoft Vista.

All day yesterday I was on my computer fine. I went to bed and hopped on this morning and noticed that whatever I do (clicking browser button, pressing start button) practically anything, Vista freezes and I'm forced to manual reboot.

I did some research on the web but can't find anything that works. I went into safe mode, ran scans from AVG and Malwarebytes and they were both clean. I also went to msconfig and unchecked everything except Microsoft related files on startup but I still get the same problem.


The promblem is the freezing can happen whenever, it could be 10 seconds or 10 minutes, but this problem has only started today, and I've never seen this before!

Does anyone have any ideas why this happened overnight?

Thanks all!

-Wormtail

A:Advice needed please!

Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

This may give us some clues as to what is happening.

Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze.
Look at the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process. FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.

A:Advice needed on OC'ing

While RAM is a major part of OCing, messing around with RAM without knowing what you're doing can easily kill it. So let's leave that part out for now.

As for the RAM:FSB ratio, theoretically, if your RAM's frequency is equal to your CPU's FSB, then you have the ideal conditions where a bottleneck does not exist. However, this is an irrelevant issue due to the CPU's cache being used for most operations. Don't bother with it either IMO.

Now you're left with the most relevant and important part of OCing: the CPU. As a rule of thumb, increase the FSB in 10-15MHz increments and reboot, then run a test like Prime95's Torture Test for around 20 minutes to see if the system is stable. Then reboot and repeat the cycle again. Be sure to keep a paper and pencil handy to note down each successful FSB value. There'll eventually be a point where the machine will be unstable, or may not even boot. Don't fret if the latter happens though, just power it down, remove the power plug, ground yourself by touching the chassis and then remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for a minute or two. Then put it back in and the PC should fire up fine. After doing that, just enter the last stable setting you've (hopefully) written down and enjoy your OC!

To take the above a step further, when your CPU becomes unstable, increase the Vcore (shown as a CPU Voltage setting under the AI Tweaker in the motherboard's BIOS. If you don't find it initially, keep going down until you do. It's just below the AI Transaction Booster option) by the smallest increments possible until you get the CPU stable at whatever frequency you want to run it. But before doing this I highly recommend that you buy a third-party cooler for your motherboard though, since increasing the Vcore will make the chip run hotter and your stock HSF may not cut it.

Good luck and also check out this article for more information.

A:Inspiron 1525 crashes every so often

May want to check in the event viewer to see if there is any pattern in errors. If there is nothing in there that appears useful you could check your RAM with either the Windows 7 checker from the disk or memtest86.

You aren't going to be able to replace your video card.

A:Upgrade advice needed

To clarify, an upgrade disk simply means you are required to have a version (i.e. any version) of Windows previously installed. There is no "in-place-upgrade" from XP to 7, only from Vista to 7. I understand your confusion about going from 32-bit to 64-bit, but since an in-place upgrade is not possible in your situation, the question is moot.In other words, you can certainly go from XP 32-bit to Win7 64-bit via a clean install using an upgrade disk (assuming the processor is 64-bit capable, which yours is).And if I recall correctly, the "Family Pack" contains both bits (32 and 64) of Windows 7 capable of installing on 3 machines. So, you're good there.Will the MS Office 2003 SW run with Win 7?Yes, it will work just fine. You might run into compatibility issues with documents created with newer versions of Office, but the software itself will run fine. Windows Live Mail is the new free mail client from M$. Personally, I use Mozilla Thunderbird, but if you're used to Outlook, feel free to stick to that.Any other questions?

Been thinking about upgrading my Processor for awhile now.. my budget is kinda small around ?90

I currently use an old AMD Athlon II X4 640 Socket AM3 3GHz 2MB L2 Cache

I am thinking of upgrading to either one of these two if you think it would be really worth it:

AMD FX-4 4100 Black Edition 4 Core 3.6Ghz Socket AM3+ 8MB L3 Cache
AMD FX-4 4100 Black Edition 4 Core 3.6Ghz Socket AM3.. | Ebuyer.com

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Socket AM3 6MB L3 Cache Cache
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz Socket AM3.. | Ebuyer.com

Will also be upgrading my Gfx card in January so any recommendations would not go a miss

A:Advice needed on a upgrade.

Ello Simonlodge and welcome to seven forums
I'd say to go with the 965 black edition. I used to have one and its a really good cpu especially as they are now only about ?65.
I'm pretty sure its much better than the fx 4100
As for your graphics card it all depends on budget

I am going to my parents house over xmas and they don't have wireless internet and I was wondering how do I go about using their internet on my laptop? Also I have a network cable - is there anything else I need.
 

A:network advice needed

You'll need their permission.

If they have dial-up you'll need a 56kbps modem. If they have a broadband modem with only a USB connection you will need a USB port and the modem's software. If they have a modem with ethernet connection you will need an ethernet adapter (regardless of whether they have a router). Your laptop probably already has each of these except for the USB modem software.

A:advice needed for new system

Hmmm.... How can I put this nicely.....

If your primary purpose for this new machine you are building is for new games, like HL2/doom3 etc as you say above, you are going in the wrong direction.

The specs you are listing above are going to have a very hard time running things.

1. I'd recommend you look at an AMD based system as their CPUs give you much more value for the dollar, particularly when it comes to performance in 3D games. Celeron CPUs are a very bad choice for gaming.

2. I'd say 512mb should be your absolute minimum for ram... and I mean absolute. If you are on a real tight budget, then 512. REAL tight budget. Otherwise 1Gb is the way to go.

3. Integrated graphics in general are not really designed with gaming in mind. Again, if you are on an EXTREMELY tight budget, then a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do of course.

How about this, give us your budget (specific budget) and let some people try and put a gaming system together for you. Also tell us what the budget needs to include? Windows? Monitor? etc.

Hi all !

I need help! My wifes computer that she uses for her business needs Win Service Pak 2. Her OS is Win XP. It is an older ver of XP and didn't have service Pak 2 on installation disks, etc. Unfortunately we are on Dial Up, and no luck with downloading it with such a slow connection. She does have access to friends puter on DSL.

My question is... Can she download it to CD rom via the DSL puter from the MS download site, then install it in her computer from the CD???

Thanks for any Help..

Hi everyone,

Currently, I have 512 MB of DDR-SDRAM in two Micron Technology PC3200 256 MB sticks of RAM with CAS 3.

I want to get another 512 MB, but I really don't know whether to get two sticks of 256MB, which is more expensive, or to get one stick of 512, which is cheaper.

By the way, the model i'm interested in is the KVR400X64C3A/512 or the KVR400/512CR both made by Kingston. Both of which I'm pretty sure are only one stick of 512 MB RAM. As well, I'm pretty sure the stats on the Kingston RAM and my original Micron Technology RAM are similar.

Any advice?
Thanks,

I am in the process of gathering componants to build a new faster computer. I am leaning towards one of the two processors below and it is not my intention to start a big fuss between the Intel and AMD readers. I have tried both and have been equally pleased with both.

Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 Q6600 95w
AMD Phenom 9850 125 w Quad

I also plan to buy the WD Raptor 10000 rpm hdd from NewEgg.

I have the Antec 900 box that I have used before and was happy with.

Now the MOB. I am really undecided here and would appreciate all advice. I have used Asus and Gigabyte boards in the past and both with good results.

Any recommendations on ram. How much better and important is the newer faster ram.

TIA for your opinions and advice. I am not a geek but more a hobbiest!

I recently upgraded my system to W Pro H W is an Asus P Q Pro Gb and an Intel quad core which has all been running XP fine for about a year Bought a new G drive to put W on Installation went fine and it found drivers for everything except the NIC which i got from probvlems advice W7 - Odd needed... the Asus site It ran mostly ok for a few weeks but with the occasional Odd W7 probvlems - advice needed... 'stop dead' - no BSOD no nothing Then it started to occasionally hang for about secs at a time Ran HDTune and it found some damaged block - but I'm not sure if they are really damaged or if W has just decided to mark them as such Memtest says all memory OK Updated to mobo drivers from Asus site and things got much worse e g CD drives disappeared until I rolled back the Marvel drivers Now VERY flaky I'm resigned to doing a complete re-install and I'll get a new HD and new graphics card Currently FireGL V which has no speficic W drivers Questions Stick with the P Q Worked ok with XP If so stick with W installed drivers or go with Asus ones Caused grief this time I don't mind the rebuild but I'd be happier if I knew what was causing the problems Any thoughts Thanks Steve

Get another graphics card.

No problem with P5Q

no BSOD, no nothing. Then it started to occasionally hang for about 20 secs at a time.

Thats the clue.

Hi all,
My kids have all got old AMDK6 based Gateways (church office was thowing them out) and I need to upgrade some of the hard drives. Nothing fancy, just something bigger than 1.6GB so I can load Win2K and, oh, ANYthing else .

I'm having trouble relating PIO Mode 3 and 4 that the motherboard specified it can handle to today's DMA ratings, but from the specs of the current hard drive and motherboard (seee links below), it appears the motherboard will handle UDMA-33. Will current Ultra ATA100 or even 133 HDD's work in this situation? I can get a simple 20GB 5400 RPM Ultra ATA100 drive for $35 new, I just want to make sure it'll work.

Thanks, Jeff.

A:Advice Needed for UPS setup

You might ask an electrician Turkey has 230V plugs so it seems shared between 2 of them in that room
230V our 240V conversion is pretty powerful we would power an oven/ cloths dryer = large appliances off of it
You guys power small stuff with it

So at that amperage even though UPS's have their own gfi safety features it might be a good idea to add another sacrificial lamb to it

Most of our gfi breakers are 15A if lucky most would be 10A = 120V
20A would be a special request depending on what is connected to it and how long the string is.

Hi all, I am new to the world of NAS devices.
I have 5 X 3.5" Sata HardDisks which I would like to share the data around my home network.
I have 2 notebooks, 1 netbook, 1 iPad, 1 desktop and a PS3; I would ideally like to share my files with all devices, and it will be a bonus if I can create different user account for access.
I would like to spend around 150-350 ($240-$550USD) on the NAS.

Any advice would be appreciated.
 

A:NAS buying advice needed

I recently ordered (and haven't even received yet) from Newegg a Synology 1511+. I was about to press the order button on a Drobo FS until I read all the owner complaints about network speed. I realize, though, that both of these devices are a bit outside of your budget. You might find it a bit difficult to get what you're looking for without stepping up to at least $600 US. The Drobo FS is around $600-630 and the Synology Diskstation 1511+ is around $800-820 US. I could only find 2 qnap devices that supported 5 drives - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...SpeTabStoreType=&AdvancedSearch=1&srchInDesc= .
