Hello I have an old HP Pavilion n that has - GB DDR PC ram modules but they are being reported in BIOS as only being at PC and I am just wondering if this is the best that this system can do with this speed of ram or is there anything that I can do to get it to run at PC Here are the specs from CPU-Z Mainboard Model - ASUS P B -LA rev Chipset - Intel i D rev Southbridge - Intel BA ICH rev Processor Intel Pentium - GHz - Northwood Clocks Core Core Speed - MHz Multiplier - x Bus Speed - MHz Rated FSB - MHz CPU-Z is reporting that both modules are PC DDR but the BIOS is indicating PC The BIOS does not have the ability to change anything regarding clock settings and the board itself has no jumpers to change so any input would be welcome regarding any suggestions if this system can actually get full usage of the PC DDR GB modules or if it can only run at PC because of the Bus Speed I thought that if Speed Ram reporting BIOS not correct in the board had a MHz FSB it would run DDR PC ram Any advice would be appreciated Thanks Brian nbsp

A:"Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password” even with correct credentials

I experienced a similar problem when I was trying to network my 8.1 machine the host network. As you say the host PC can see and connect to all of the machines, but not the other way around. Not sure if it is the same in your situation but I found that Microsoft's idea of network sharing on the Windows 8 class of OS differs greatly from previous OS's in that you can connect to it from an external host, but when trying to do the other way around it doesn't "see" the PC in question due to differing network sharing protocols included in the OS.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I am speaking only from what happened with my network.

MY WD 500GB USB HD just yesterday stopped working normally, it was working fine two days ago. When I connect the drive via USB it appears as a different drive letter for some reason Local Disk : I then disappears. My laptop makes two noises one that I've connected a device to the laptop then another noise which is when I disconnect a device. It makes this connection/disconnection noise when the HD is plugged in numerous times every minute or so.

The HD doesn't appear in windows explorer but appears in devices.

Very strange and unusual any ideas?

So I just installed my 8350 about two days ago and I just found out that it isn't running to its full potential. It's running at 2812 MHz. when it should be running at at least 4k MHz. I tried running my game to see if it will go up and maybe its just idle to save power but that did not work. Then I went into my bios and turned off all my C-State (c1e, c6 are the only two I have). And that did not do the trick and I have ran into a brick wall. Please help me.
 

A:AMD 8350 Not getting correct speed

I have 3 possible solutions to the issue: 1) The CPU is flawed. 2) You are in a power saving Windows state. 3) Your CPU is running hot, which will throttle its speed to something lower.

In order to check whether your PC is in a power saving mode, go to the start menu and type in "power options". Choose the one listed under "control panel". Once you click it, it should bring up a window that tells you what power state you are in. Choose the "Balanced" plan if it is in power saving mode and see if that helps.

Secondly, download and run RealTemp and tell me what the CPU temperature is at idle and when gaming.

I suspected I had malware, but went through many steps on the other forum topic to have the same problem of internet explorer not responding. It will not load any webpages. I've done a repair install of Windows 7 SP1 and all the critical/important updates have been installed. I am using IE9. Any ideas what could be causing this problem? It seems to have started about a week ago. Google Chrome doesn't seem to be affected, but sometimes it seems resources are being used by something else. That is why I suspected a virus or malware. Any suggestions? Could this be a hardware problem?
 

A:Internet Explorer not responding

First issue is to resolve the question

is tcp configured so I can access the Internet
if it is, then what's stopping the browser(s)
Solving (1).

Get a command prompt (start->run->cmd) and enter

ping 8.8.8.8
If you get timeouts, then tcp is a mess.

if you get timing data, then try

ping google.com
If you get timing data, the TCP is just fine, otherwise the first ping worked by the second doesn't means
the TCP settings for your DNS are missing or wrong

Hi, I order two sets of memory sticks both 2 GBs. here they are
1st one I bought: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-PC2-6...GG/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1336701850&sr=8-10


and 2nd
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CM2X2...P77Y/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1336701850&sr=8-9

here is what I am staring it

What do you guys say is everything working fine?
 

A:Memory correct or incorrect?

I'm slightly confused. You said your purchased two sets but yet the second purchase appears to be a single module. Even in the screenshot the module size is 2GB.

What exactly is the question?

Are you are questioning the frequency of 400MHz?
If so, that is normal. DDR stand for Double Data Rate, DDR2-800 would be Double Data Rate of 400MHz which is 800MHz.

I can't connect to MSN, AIM,nor can I open the launchers for some MMOs I play (though I can get into them if I launch the .exe file). I can connect to Steam and talk to people but I can't use the browser aspect of it. Firefox says it's a proxy issue, but I'm not too software savvy and don't really know what to do with this. It seems to be anything browser-related. I haven't installed anything new and I ran a few scans for viruses, malware, etc, and did a few other things I usually do to remedy connection issues (disabling firewall, power cycling modem/router, etc) to no avail. Does anyone know how to fix this?

A:What is correct HDD problem & can OS be backed up?

Doesn't look good.

Here's what I would do it that's what I saw:

1) start->run->cleanmgr to remove temp files (why waste time fixing & saving these?)

2) Backup or COPY personal data to an external USB device;
get a command prompt Start->Run->cmd to see the path and then CD to My Documents
This is where the large proportion of your documents are located

3) get the event viewer (start->run->eventvwr.msc)
Open the system tab and scroll down looking for Warning(in yellow) DISK events.
There should be one per real I/O error - - just count'm up. The more you find the worse the condition.

Decision time: IF there's too many, plan on replacing the HD, else attempt step(4) to attempt to continue using the system as-is

4) Boot into Safe Mode and use start->run->->CHKDSK /F /R which will take hours.

A:ASRock MB will no longer recognize video card or install correct drivers

Could the fact that it isn't recognized by my PC be do to a lack of power from my psu? I have a raidmax 530w psu and min for the card is 400 so I figured I was okay... There is no place on the card to hook a cable from the psu to. It gets all its power straight from the MB... I dunno if that info will help any

I have 3 Sata hdd's; two 160gb and one 1.5TB. Windows 7 is on one of the 160gb, 1.5TB is used purely for games storage anf the other 160gb is used for file storage.

After starting up, whenever I click on Games it takes a while to show all the icons; once it has done it once then it will show the icons immediately every time.

Is there a way of getting it to show the icons immediately first time around? It is not a major problem, more of an irritation, but I would like to know if it can be fixed.

I have no problems with my other hdd's and antivirus and malware all updated and checked for virus's and spyware.

Any help is much appreciated

It seems it slows down while querying the filesystem to create a database of icons of files in the path.
It may be an heavy task if there are large images, video, or executables that must be queried for creating icons.
IMHO you could try changing the icon mode of the file explorer, or trying to create subfolders in order to identify if there are troublesome files that slow down the icon rendering more than others.

A:External 60GB drive is empty and shows 10MB in Explorer

try this,
Go to my computer and right click on the drive you have set up as slave drive. Go to properties-then security-then click on advanced tab near the bottom of that page-then click on owner tab-then on edit-then choose the owner you want to have access in this case you Administrators mine says (Tman-PC\Administrators) and then click apply. You will have to close all the windows down and reopen them and you should be able to see anything that was hidden or unaccessable on the drive.

Hope t works for you.

Ugh, ive been looking all over the internet for a solution to this. Anyway, im borrowing my friend's external hard drive to transfer some stuff from my laptop to my desktop when my laptop for whatever reason crashed. Now when i started my laptop back up, explorer doesn't recognize the external hard drive. However, disk management seems to be able to recognize the external hard drive as a separate disk. Does anybody know how i can get my explorer to recognize the external hard drive?
 

A:Can't get explorer to recognize external hard drive

Since it's recognized by Disk Management, I'll guess one of two things

1. See if this might help How to Cleanup and Remove old USB Storage Drivers

2. Otherwise, it could be filesystem corruption on the disk. Have you tried connecting it to a different computer to see if it works? If it still fails on other computers as well could be windows sees the disk when connected but doesn't recognize a valid filesystem any longer so doesn't mount the logical volume. Try TestDisk for partition/data recovery

OS: Windows XP Pro

I have 3 hard drives all 80GB, two are from Western Dig and one is a Maxtor and 1 DVD attached as follows.

Primary IDE channel with the 80 wire cable set up:

Drive #1 (OS drive) - jumper on Master w Slave Present, end cable location, assigned to C:
Drive #2 (data drive) - jumper on Slave, middle cable location, assigned to D:

Secondary IDE channel with 40 wire cable set up:

Drive #3 (DVD) - jumper on Slave, end cable location, assigned to F:
Drive #4 (data drive) - jumper on Master w Slave Present, middle cable location, assigned to E: and G:

I don't know why the same drive #4 gets assigned to two letters E and G???

How to fix so it is only assigned to one letter???

I have a HP Pavillion. About a month ago, my laptop started freezing up while surfing the web. I started watching my task manager while this was happening. It turns out that the internet is clogging my RAM. I also use a gadget on the sidebar to monitor RAM. Just before the computer freezes, the RAM is at ~95%. That is just with one tab open, and no other tasks running. Closing all tabs reduces RAM to about 25% almost instantly and everything starts to work fine again. i'm not sure if I should blame the RAM or IE.

Any comments or suggestions.

Thanks
Justin
 

A:Internet explorer clogs memory

Well you need to do two things:

1. Update your windows via windows update service to get all upto date patches/fixes
2. Download Malwarebytes for installation and scan your system and post its log here.

I am assuming its a Vista machine; please confirm though.

windows xp pro failed to install correctly. How do I reformat new hard drive so I can start over?
 

A:Windows XP Pro failed to install correct how do I reformat new hard drive

Whenever you reinstall XP you get the opportunity to reformat the harddrive.
This may be of help http://tweakhound.com/xp/installxp/installXP1.htm
On the 4th blue screenshot when presented with your harddrive (partition) press "D" to delete the current partition, the harddrive then becomes "unpartitioned space" then press "C" to create the new partition- specify a partition size, or the whole drive, then highlight the 3rd option (as in the screenshot) "Format the partition using the NTFS file system"- depending on the Harddrive size it might take a while. Once it's finished you're formatted and you continue the install.

Hi all, I've lost the adapter for my MSI GX630 notebook and now I'm on the hunt for a replacement. The exact model that I'm looking for is a LITEON PA-1121-04 model. I have found some replacements but there are usually some things off about these replacements, ether the connector size is wrong or the power rating is incorrect. The adapter has a power rating of 19V 6.3A and the closest replacement I've found has that of 19V 6.5A. I'd like to know if this 0.2A difference is too dangerous for my machine, or if i should continue searching for one with 6.3A specifically?

Also, are there any websites where you would suggest I look for an adapter like the one I'm looking for? Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:Correct Amperage?

You can use that adapter.
The amperage is drawn, so it has to be same or HIGHER. The plug has to fit (obviously) and the wattage has to be exactly the same, but yes, you can safely use an adapter with higher amperage.

A FAT32 C: drive partition? I'm going to guess you're still running an older version of windows? (like maybe Windows 2000)

I know Vista defrags MFT. I think XP as well (would have to double check XP)

but assuming you really are W2K, take a look here might help provide info for W2k (have you considered upgrading your OS?)

I ve bought an Apevia Explorer case recently and liked the way it looked It s pretty nice for a steel case with a side window to look in In the front you have placements for two fans here that isn t included there s a flaw here i ll tell it later on the side windowed panel there s an airduct on the top there s an mmfan exhaust and on the rear you can choose between mm or mm which i prefer fan I m using this case with my new and first Cause i bought it for the first time for myself mobo Asus M A -T I started things off pretty good that is until it problem Cooling case with Explorer Apevia hit Cooling problem with Apevia Explorer case me that the temps on my cpu started to reach degrees celcius I just like things cooler then degr celc I already placed a mm in the rear from ThermalTake Thunderblade in the rear In the front i placed apevia s stock mm fan that sat in the rear so it can help cool the HDD But there s a bit off a problem here as that mm has a problem pulling air through the case s steel grill and on top of that it has to pull air from the front bottom of the case and even the bottom of the case already touches the ground no clearance Oh and it even looks as if it works like a vacuum cleaner cause it collects a lot of dust I want to place a second fan from TT Thunderblade mm in the front I won t be able to post pictures yet After a day or two maybe But i need some advise on what to do in the front please nbsp

A:Cooling problem with Apevia Explorer case

Hi,

Which direction did you place the fans? Are all going into the PC? Is the top one blowing out? Is your power supply a single or a dual fan model?

I think I found your case on Newegg:

newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811144104

What I would likely start with, depending on the location of the case, is on the back 120mm pulling air in and only the 80 mm on top blowing air out. My PSUs are usually dual fan. If my case is in an area where it is close to a wall then I don't want the exhaust air being brought back into the case so I would have the 120mm on back blowing out and the 80 mm on top blowing out as well.

If it doesn't get as cool as you'd like I recommend you look at a different/better fan/heatsink for you CPU. I also saw once someone used some semi-thick plastic to create isolation pockets for the components. He realized that the heat from the video card should be isolated and ducted out without touching the CPU because it will heat the video card. I haven't found the link but it looked cool and and it was effective. I'll try to find it again later.

Good luck,

Adrian

Every time I turn on the laptop the time is wrong, I reset the time correctly but after being shutdown for a while, when I turn it back on the time is off again. I assume it is probably the nickel sized battery on the motherboard. If I remove it to replace it with a new one how will it affect the laptop, does removing that battery have any effect on how the laptop it starts and operates, thanks.

Replacing the CMOS battery won't harm the laptop. A new battery is all that may be needed, but you will have to get into the bios and check that all the settings are the way you want them, or set them to defaults

I seem to be getting 3 different temperature readings for my CPU(E8500 3.16Ghz). PCProbe 2 reports CPU temps of 70-80c, CoreTemp reports 56c and Real Temp reports 46c. If the first readings(70-80c) were correct i think the CPU would fry or at least blue screen the system. Can anyone out there explain why this is ocuring? Or a Temperature monitoring tool/utility that will report more realistic values? My specs E8500 3.16Ghz, P5N32-E SLI, EN9600GT, 2Gb DDR2, 570w PSU, Vista Ultimate.
 

A:Correct Temp Reporting

Unless you are having computer problems like you mentioned, freezing, blue screens or shutdowns, temp readings are not critical. Temp sensors on motherboards are notorius for being less than accurate. Even if you used a good thermocouple to measure the temps, it would depend on where you placed the probe to get the most accurate temp. For a CPU the best place for the probe tip would be between the CPU heatsink and the CPU die... As you can imagine, this is not practical

Follow the installation directions that come with it.
But fans are usually Case Fans.Theres holes to screw them to.
One again : Read your motherboard manual. pci slots are for devices like

Is there anymore software out there that is free, where I can use to find out the real score? Pls guys help, Im new in this stuff. And I work so hard to invest on my hardware, that I feel I bought a wrong or defective DDR2. I'll give you more details just ask away.
 

A:DDR2 not registering correct value

Unfortunately Windows XP 32bit can only detect about 3GB of memory maximum. Upgrading to Windows XP 64bit will allow you to have more than 3 GB. Your hardware is fine, you just need to up your OS.

Just bought this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102730
and need help hooking power up correctly.Here is the power cable it came with in the middle http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowI...on=SAPPHIRE+Radeon+HD+3850+100228L+Video+Card
Do i need to hook both of those cables to the power source?
 

A:Correct power supply hookup?

Yes, or the eight pin connector won't provide the proper power to the graphics card. Some power supplies come with the eight pin connector but I suppose that yours does not.

I have a Sony Vaio (FZ290), and I'm pretty happy with it in general.
There are 2 problems however:

1) When I try and put it into standby, about half the time it doesn't go into standby, just turns off the screen, and keeps everything else on. The lights on the front indicate that it is still on, but the screen stays blank no matter what I do.
I've waited for 30 minutes for it to go into standby before cutting the power manually with the button...

2) When I do get it into standby, about half the time on resume from standby, explorer.exe crashes. I'm not sure why, but it's bloody annoying. It starts back up, however it is still annoying to have it doing that...

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate. I do not have SP1 yet, but I will be trying that today.
 

A:Sony Vaio (FZ290) doesn't go into standby correctly, explorer.exe crashes on resume

I was going to suggest SP1 but it looks like you're in the process.
I usually disable all of the power management in the BIOS, and let Windows take care of it.
I tend to be re-format happy, but the first thing I do when I get a new lappy is to reformat and get all that proprietary software off it. Ever see the mac comercial where the guy is all fat and blated? Anyway, factory laptops are installed via an image. Sometimes that image is less than perfect causing instability.

Hi Guys

I bought some Geil Ultra DDR2 2.0GB PC6400 Dual Channel memory kit (2 x 1GB) 800MHz (4-4-4-12) +Aluminium heat spreader a while ago for my computer build

troubles are:

1) When i booot nothing comes on the screen and then i have to boot it up again this then works and the screen comes on. I have tried moving the memory and all seems fine.

2) As from user reviews on the product the memory is meant to run at 4-4-4-12 but is actually running at 5-5-5-23 how do i fix this to get the correct timings?

I have 3GB of the same memory, here is the link http://www.microdirect.co.uk/productInfo.aspx?ProductID=14777&AddReview=0#ShowReview

I'm having an odd problem with my computer. When I attempt to right-click on any movie file(.avi, .mov, .wmv, etc) The screen goes black for 1/2 second or so , then redraws the screen before the menu comes up.
I'm running an Athlon 64X2 4200+ with 1gb ram and a Geforce 6600 Gt, . I've had the same setup for awhile, but this problem is recent. I've tried upgrading the drivers, but doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions?
Also, possibly related, WMV files already on my computer only play for about 2 seconds before the video stops. Pausing and playing again don't help.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have 3 wired and 1wireless using a router. I am adding, replacing, and switching computer locations, so thought it would be best to do a clean network and re-install from scratch. (I guess there is an easier way, but to much of a network newbee for complications)

I deleted the LAN in the control panel. I also removed the adapter cards from my computers. When I go to Windows Explorer I still have NETWORK PLACES folder and sub folders/locations of ENTIRE NETWORK and MICROSOFT WINDOWS NETWORK and MSHOME. (all folders are empty) I can delete the top folder NETWORK PLACES which get's rid of everything, but if I click on view, & refresh, all of the above file folders/locations re-appear even after a reboot.

Is this as clean as it is going to get?

Thank you for any advice.

A:explorer acting retarded, please read

A faulty Explorer shell extension appears to be the problem.Known culprits include Photoshop,Divvx and Spysweeper.

- http://www.ghisler.ch/wiki/index.php/Right_click_or_Ctrl-C_causing_crash

1.Go to Regedit

2.Key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

In this key, all shell extensions are listed which work with all files. The * is a real star, it does not mean 'any key' here!

3. Choose "Registry" - "export registry", so you can revert your changes later. Choose to export only the selected branch.

4. Now delete one context menu handler after the other, and then try each time in (Windows Explorer) whether right click works again. This way you should find the defective extension.

5. When you have found it, you need to double click the .reg-file created above to restore all shell extensions, and then delete only the malfunctioning extension.

You may have to repeat this with the keys

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

or

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

If the error happens with directories or with virtual folders.

I have a Toshiba Tecra TE2100 1.8 GHZ P4 laptop with 768 MB RAM. I purchased an external enclosure for a Maxtor 60 Gig IDE hard drive. After starting Windows XP everything is running normal. As soon as I turn on the hard drive my CPU usage skyrockets to 100% and everything runs incredibly slow if at all and the computer won't shut down. When I turn off the drive things return to normal after about 15 minutes. Sometimes Windows comes up and says the drive is installed and everything runs except for the fact that there is no drive letter, but I believe I found a workaround for this in these forums. If I could just solve this CPU problem I believe everything will be ok. Could these problems be related? I have spent hours trying to figure this one out.
Thanks For Your Help,

A:differing temperature readings on rebooting pc...whats correct?

Mmm your system does seem a little on the warm side.

I`d be inclined to believe hmonitor and motherboard monitor.

What cooling do you have?

Maybe you should take off the heatsink, and clean off all the old thermal paste/pad from the heatsink, and cpu die, using some isopropyl alcohol. Then apply some new thermal paste to your cpu die, and reattach the heatsink.

Only apply a very small amount of thermal paste. See HERE for further info about applying thermal paste.

As far as your BSOD`s go. Zip 5 or 6 of your minidumps together, and attach them here.

You might also want to take a look at this thread HERE

I am trying to access a USB 2.0 HDD on WinXP SP2

It is an IDE Maxtor 300GB PATA133 (EIDE) housed in a Cintre Zdisc Storage Case.

I can see the HDD in Device manager. Which says it is working properly.

However, I cannot see it in Explorer or diskmgmt.msc (i.e. Computer Manatement -> Disk Management).
I expect that I need to format the HDD, however, I can't see it to format it.

Can you Help?

I used a USB mb drive to play a little game called ZUMA its not a game that requires an actual install you can copy the folder to your hard drive and click on the exe and play away So I tried the game out on my laptop and decided it was pretty cool the game was located on the USB stick at this point So I closed the game and copied USB is explorer now drive and Used boot. looking on for it the entire folder to my C drive and sent a copy of the exe to the desktop All worked as I planned I re opened the game and played it and was satisfied that the move and the game were unefected What I did not expect was that the next time I booted the laptop and each time since it brings up an error saying Windows Used USB drive and now explorer is looking for it on boot. Explorer Error location F Zuma Delux refers to a location that is unavailable It could be on a hard drive on this computer or it could be on a network It goes on about make sure the disk is in and the Used USB drive and now explorer is looking for it on boot. network is connected bla bla bla So the thing is I am not asking it to go look for the USB F drive I did one time days ago but not since The PC has a C Hard Disk and a D CD DVD drive I need to find where in the boot sequence this request for the F drive is and remove it Please advise Thank you nbsp

A:Problems with Internet Explorer on a Wireless Laptop

WindowsXP conflict with 802.11 wireless?

I have a very similar problem with my ACER laptop.
It's new, and the first week everything was fine but the second week the web page problem started. I can't open Google.com and a few other sites.
IE always says "page cannot be displayed". Firefox says "operation timed out".
Unlike in the previous case, Yahoo is fine. MSN,Microsoft, Symantec and most others also no problem.
It all started after I downloaded a bunch of WindowsXP patches from Microsoft and the latest Norton Anti-Virus definitions on August 27, 2005.
I've fiddled with so many settings in IE, WindowsXP, and Norton Anti-Virus that I can't remember them all, but nothing has an effect.

I use my laptop's built-in 802.11g wireless card(broadcom) and I suspect a conflict between the latest WindowsXP Updates and the newest wireless protocols. Or maybe there's some new, unrecognized Mal-ware out there.

I've read too many postings about a wireless laptop all of a sudden not opening some websites in August 2005. Or did the same person post around different sites?

Hey all, I'm going absolutely nuts. I'm building a new system up for my mom and the parts she bought are fubar! The old board wouldn't format the HDD when I tried to install windows XP pro on it, though the hard drive did fine loading in my PC. Bought a new board and it won't POST. I had the Bus set to 233MHz which is what AMD lists as the frequency for the AthalonXP 2800+, but when I put the processor back in the old board to make sure I didn't fry the processor it read it's bus speed as 100MHz. I upped the speed to 233 on that board and it stopped posting. Do I have a bunk chip? If so, is the old board actually ok?

I'll post all the specs of the boards when I get back, but any 1st thoughts would be appreciated.
 

A:new board won't POST, Processor not running at correct speed

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

The correct front side bus speed for your athlon 2800+ cpu is 166mhz. By setting it to 233mhz this constitutes a massive overclock, and that is why your system wont post.

If you look at the cpu specs below you will see that the Athlon xp 2800+ has an fsb of 333mhz which is means it should be set to 166mhz. 166mhz X the multiplier of 12.5 = 2083mhz clock speed.

See HERE for athlon specs.

The computer that I use is connected by LAN to a cyber cafe, my problem is that Interner Explorer is not opening some sites that I need to visit because of my DTP work. It open sites like techspot.com, yahoo.com, msn.com and google.com but not sites like fontfreak.com or photoshop101.com. This is very frustrating, when I go to the cyber cafe the computers there open any of the sites that I can't open here. What is the problem? Please, any one, help.

A. Stop using IE, first. I HIGHLY suggest getting firefox at www.getfirefox.com.

B. What is the error that you get when you attempt to open those pages? the generic 404? or something else?

Hello,
I have a Athlon XP barton core 2500+ processor sitting on an Asus A7V600-X with (2) 256MB sticks of Corsair Value Select.

In BIOS, the CPU Speed is 1467 MHz , bus speed is 133/33, and multiplier is 11.0x. I can't remember exactly what the ram is... (either PC2700 or PC3200) but do I need to change these settings or is the correct speed for a XP2500+?

I'm not interested in OC'ing or anything, just want to be running at the right speed.

Thanks
Ed
 

A:Athlon XP 2500 processor running at 1467MHz. Is that correct?

That is definately not the correct speed for your processor, I run an xp2000+ and its normal clock speed is 1666 Mhz. In your bios there is a setting for front side bus (fsb) speed, u need to set that correctly for your particular processor.

Where can I find the correct mounting hardware for an old HD to install in a new Dell computer? The old HD was mounted horizontally. It looks like the Dell uses a vertical approach. Shouldn't this stuff be easy to find?? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Where find correct mounting hardware for old HD in new Dell computer

You can mount hard drives in any direction you like. Usually the only hardware you need to mount a HD is screws.

If you really need some brackets or rails to mount a hard drive in your new Dell then the Dell salesman is the man to approach.

I was using windows xp to format a hard drive, when it reached 100% it said





Failed to format hard diskClick to expand...

Since then, I have been unable to open my computer in windows explorer when the hard drive is present in the system.

I don't have a clue how I might go about getting my hard drive running again as i can't even get to it to start formatting it again. I don't mind about the data on it so an extreme solution is acceptable.

Any ideas?

Thanks
Ben

try right clicking on my computer, click manage, click disk management, on the bottom right of the window, scroll down until you find your drive. assign a drive letter to it. if it's not there well you gotta try something else.

I recently purchased a DVR-RW drive from my existing computer which already has a DVD drive and a CDRW drive. First of all, is it possible to connect all the drives at one time. Currently I have the first IDE cable connected to the hard drive and the second IDE connected to the CDRW and DVD as Master and Slave respectively. I know that the DVDRW should be a master, but how should the other drives be connected.

Thanks for your help,
Michael
 

A:Correct config for 3 optical drives

You will have to put one of the drives as a slave to the hard disk. Depending on what kind of IDE controller you have you may lose HD performance unless one of your optical drives uses ATA66 or above.

The master device should be the one with highest priority so on the secondary IDE you should masterise the drive you will be using the most.

The drive sharing the cable with the HD should be the one you use the least so it wouldn't take away bandwidth from the HD.

I tried finding the same problem elsewhere but did not have any luck. It said the explorer application at "0x015b39ee" at the extension (I think that is what it said) "0x00000000" could not be "written." It isn't really casuing any problems with anything but unless I click OK on that menu box I can't access anything else. I would like to provide more information about the error but it doesn't really give me much specifics to type. I would greatly appreciate any help!! Thanks!! :slurp:

Device Description Type

i've loaded several drivers for this card from realtek and non seem to work completely. i've tried:

-wdm345 this is the only one where i can playback audio cd's through windows 98 default cd player. windows media player doesn't recognized, nor does any other software.
-wdm354a
-wdm365 or 364 whichever. this is supposed to be good for most all os's. and is the only one to make my pc crash
-apa345
