Can anybody Help Me !!

I have set up a Server type machine on a HP Touchsmart running Vista

I have purchased a Seagate 2TB Expansion Drive with its own power source

I desperately want to know how this external drive can be seen by other devices on the network

I have other external drives with their own power supply and non of them can be accessed by other computers on the network....Is there a trick to these devices!!!

I have external hard drives with NO power supply just USB connection and I can access them from any computer on the network and any media device on the network

I'm not very technical and would like to know if its just the type of device and I should be buying usb connected hard drives for music and movies
 

A:External Expansion Drive with own power supply

You need a router that has a USB connection. Then you can connect the external storage to the network. That is only for a USB drive though. Do you have one of those passport drives with a battery?

Is there any current documentation or whitepapers that illustrate why a customer should upgrade by adding DDR3/4 memory as opposed to believing they will get the same performance by allowing Windows to page out to an SSD drive?  Particularly if the software they are running specifically calls for more memory than is currently installed in the machine?

Please refrain from posting in other peoples thread. If you don't get a response after 24 hours of the initial post, just post in this one and your thread will go to the top of the list.

What do you meant by going to boolProp and are you using this to get your Sim to order something?

A:Windows 7 blank screen after sleep mode (unable to power off with power button)

Hello,

Is it possible that you can test with another compatible PSU? I would strongly suggest doing so.

Also try the following steps:
?Make sure that the (internal) speaker is connected to the motherboard
?Remove all memory and attempt to boot the PC
?You should get the no memory beep errors

If the Power Supply is in working order and no beeps are present then it can be indicative of a faulty motherboard.

For troubleshooting purposes it may be a good idea to remove the components from the case and bench test to rule out a short.

Hi. If i change in Windows 10 in Power Management from Balanced to Power Saver is this safe for graphic card?
I change from Balanced to Power Saver and fps in benchmark went from 180fps to 50fps. Is there any hardware related changes due to swap from Balanced to Power Saver ?

A:Windows Power Management - Power Saver - is this safe for graphic card

Power Saver attempts to save power by reducing the CPU’s speed all the time and lowering screen brightness, among other similar settings and that may account for your fps drop when benchmarking. Doesn't sound like a good choice for your purposes.

How do I expand my C drive??..Here is a pic of disk management..

A:Expansion

25GB is the recommended disk space for a window 8 consumer preview install, your C: drive just isn't big enough unless you wipe your OS that's all ready on it and you wouldn't want to do that, only install windows 8 on a test machine or as dual boot install in my opinion.

It looks like you have enough space on your E: drive where you could create a 25GB blank partition and then you could install Windows 8 consumer preview there, if not then get another or bigger hard drive.

You could also make a ghost image of your C: drive, get a bigger C: hard drive, reghost your C: drive back onto the new bigger hard drive and then create a blank partition on it of 25GB or bigger and install windows 8 there, that's above my head though and could be kind of hard to do.

hope something helps

k, i have a motherboard that doesnt support sata hard drives. if i get a pci card for it would it be the same speed and performance as a motherboard with it built right in.

thanx

A:expansion

No mate it wont, SATA built onto the boad runs at 150 ATA theoretically but the add in cards are still limited by the PCI bus which impose the same limit as IDE chips so the most you would get would be 133, personally I never found a difference with SATA built in until I put 2 drives in a raid stripe.

have 4 ide devices on my home pc. I have heard of ide expansion cards that allow additional devices to be added (I have 2hd's and a cd and cdrw) I would like to put the cdrw on its own port. Can anyone explain how this works - or point me in a direction where I can find the necessary info.
thankx
 

A:ide expansion

Yes- An IDE Controller card will add 4 additional device capapbility- one I am familiar with called Promise Ultra 100, TX2- but there are others. Use any search engine for "IDE Controller Cards" should get you needed info. Installing the Promise Ultra 100 is fairly easy if you follow instructions. You may not have any spare IRQ's with 4 devices already. Should be some information in the search articles about this. Cost is around $25 at most PC supply sites. Bought one at computer show for $23. Most use PCI slot- sure you have one that is free- and not the shared slot.
When installed, they show up as a SCSI device.

Hi,

I have a Compaq Proliant 1600 running Windows NT 4.0 server and 2 logical drives on a raid 5 array.

I have just added a new 9.1GB disk (same as the other 5) and run the Compaq array config utility. This has happily added the new disk to the array and restripped the data. However, NT isn't showing any more free disk space.

I had this happen when I added the 5th disk and I know I had to do something else to get NT to see the extra space, but I don't remember what.

Anyone got any ideas?

Many thanks
 

A:RAID 5 Expansion

My only experience with a Compaq RAID-5 array was that 5 drives was the maximum it would manage, the 6th was simply a spare that hung around until one of the other drives failed. I may be off-base here, since it's been awhile since I worked with the Compaq server, just an observation.

Anything to do with the job/careers is blanked out. the activity square at the top left corner and the career logo in the job panel. my sims go to work in their own clothes insted of changing into the uniform of their jobs.

i'm afraid to say it but it might have something to do with your save game file being corrupted or there is somehow a bug in it, if you start a new game, does the problem still exist? also did you download any patches available for the game? i know it was newly released so i don't know if any exist yet but at least check.

I have had a seagate 500gb expansion drive for two years and never had a problem, then yesterday I turned it on, the led indicator lit for a second and the disc started and continued spinning but with no sign of it in file explorer, after several more efforts the same result, I tried other usb sockets then a friends laptop with the same results I am puzzled the way the green LED lights up but for only 0.5 of a second, that together with the seemingly intact rotation of the platter gives me hope but then I know nothing of IT hardware therefore I?m hoping that someone can advise me either way whether I may be able to get a quick and (cheapish) repair or if my doom monger friend is correct by suggesting a professional retrieval can be eye-wateringly expensive regardless of the amount of data saved.

If it just the enclosure that has failed you may be able to remove the drive and slave it in your PC. It's probably a laptop SATA drive.

Alright, so I've basically installed everything and patched it and have the CD in the drive but when I start up the game, the game's logo shows up and then it suddenly goes.... "Age of Empires II expansion has Stopped working..." blah blah blah. I've ran some old games and they worked I don't know why AoE II doesn't....

Tried Compatibility Windows 98 and XP SP2 and Windows 2003 SP1 *No idea why*
Tried reinstalling both of them, patched them already, my anti-virus doesn't interfere with it or anything, tried running in 256 colours and still crashes, also ran as Administrator and it doesn't work..

Can anyone help me?

Also this is my Task Manager, i don't think any of those interfere with it running the game..

A:Age of Empires II and Expansion

After reading your post I tried to start my old installation of AoE2 (on storage-HD) and it did run perfect. The basic game (empires2.exe) as well as the expansion (age2_x1/age2_x1.exe) required only the acceptal of the EULA (license and stuff) since I didn't installed the game properly on Vista. But everything else worked fine. So it may be a problem with your version of Vista or maybe even the system.

I had some troubles recently with older games because the programs had insufficient rights to access files... try "run as administrator" on the empires2.exe (not the shortcut), but that's only a vague guess...
Good luck!

I have a HP pavillon dv4000 laptop. I recently bought a HP xb2000 Notebook Expansion Base. On the box it says it would be compatible with my laptop if it has a a Expansion Port 2. I dont believe my laptop has this accessory because the plug doesnt look anything like the ports on my laptop. I was wondering if there is another accessory i can buy so that this expansion base will work with my laptop. The wireless keyboard and mouse obviously work but i can buy that anywhere and save a lot more money. Does anyone know if i can buy another accessory to make this base work? i would GREATLY appreciate it!!

expansion port 2 is not an accessory, it is a connector soldered onto the motherboard, if you'rs doesn't have it then you're out of luck

I decided to delete the hidden Asus restore partition from my cloned hard drive. The drive had 2 partitions, the hidden one, then the C: drive (with system and data).

This was before I found out that the Windows 7 Disk Management tool will not allow you to expand a partition to the left.

So now I have 15 GB of space at the start of the drive and the only option on the C: drive is to shrink the partition.

Any way using Windows to add that space to my primary partition?

A:Partition expansion

You need to use a third party tool to move your partition to the start of the drive, then windows will let you expand it to fill the drive.

Greetings Ladies and Gents I am implementing a Scenario Wireless Expansion project that I requires expanding my wireless reach but I may be over-thinking the scenario as I sometimes do and I want to make sure I have this straight before spending too much money Here is the scenario Office - In the office we have High Speed Internet into a WRT G Router and then ONE computer into that simple Warehouse - feet away we have a warhouse where we are having our thermostats Wireless Expansion Scenario HVAC all converted to this system where the company can access and control HVAC remotely via the internet So Honeywell s equipment needs to plug into my internet connection The company does not want to pull wire from one building to the other they want to go wireless So what I am asking is for a suggested equipment configuration to get Honeywell s one ethernet cable to get my internet I thought that I would need two access points but I have to make sure we get what we need There is only a router in the office right now and nothing in the warehouse All thoughts welcome and appreciated Joel nbsp

A:Wireless Expansion Scenario

If there are minimal obstructions a wireless router or Access Point in the office and a Wireless Bridge in the warehouse should be sufficient.

Wireless Bridge is also called AP Client. The units go by different names, sometimes just "Access Point," and you have to look at the features or specs to see if they support "wireless bridge" or "AP client."

Circumventing Copy Protection - While we believe it's reasonable to make backup copies of CDs and DVDs that you own, a lot of people break copy protection for the wrong reasons. The law is still vague, at best, as to if it is legal to break copy protection in order to make such a backup, even for personal use. (The DMCA, for example, seems to make it illegal.) As a result, we do not allow discussion of how to break copy protection at this time. If we can find a nice way to draw the line, we may reconsider this in the future as laws get sorted out.

Win7 Ultimate x 32, SR1 fully updated - I've disabled the "open Submenus" option in start menu but still getting regular popup windows. There was a registry entry I disabled previously which stopped it, but after recent updates it's back and I can't find or remember the reg entry I modified. Reminders would be appreciated, it's more than a little annoying.. .

A:automatic submenu expansion

well, this appears to be a random issue related to windows updates. I have a Genius brand mouse, but on updating the OS -sometimes- it rejects the drivers in favor of generic MS drivers. Running the normal driver update results in nothing more than the standard "device is up to date" message, and win7 will not recognize any downloaded drivers in the directory holding the manufacturer's files. My only solution has been to select "browse my computer" from the driver update options, then "let me pick" and uncheck "show compatible hardware" - viola, the manufacturer and actual drivers finally show up. Ignored the MS warning that they aren't compatible, it works. I've had to repeat the process a couple of times in the few months since I posted this. Hopefully it will help anybody else struggling with the same issues.

A:can't load game expansion

Your original Sims installation might not be in the place the expansion is looking...You could try going to Start->Search->Search for Files and Folders and then look for the directory the original is installed at.

The expansion needs to be installed in the same drive and directory as the original...So if the original is in the C: drive, the expansion must be in the C: drive too.

The expansion might be trying to install in C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims\, when the original was installed in C:\The Sims\, for example. Or, the original might be in the D: drive and the expansion is looking for it in the C: drive.
EDIT: Just thought of this...if the expansion you have installed already is NEWER than Double Deluxe, than Double Deluxe might not install properly...In that case, you might have to uninstall/reinstall the game and install the expansions in the order they were released.

A:Multiplayer Conqueror's Expansion on LAN

The firewall wouldn't be an issue if your both behind it.
Do you have more then one game licence? In other words two or more different discs, one for each PC? If not that's why more then one PC can't play online at once. Some but not all games require each PC even on LAN matches to have a different licence key. If this isn't the case for you look to Microsofts FAQS for the game to see if you need each PC to use a different port. If both PCs are using the same port for the game that may be your problem but it's not firewall related. The same thing would apply if your both trying to play online. Due to the router obtaining an IP which both PCs use you would need to change the port settings for the game on one PC to insure the game server knows it's two different machines.

I upgraded the memory in a computer, booted up the computer and new memory was accepted. I shut down the computer and installed an SMC network card in a computer. I went to boot the computer up and I got three high pitched beeps, followed by a pause, then a low tone noise. Everything boots up except the monitor will not come on. I have taken out the additional memory I put in, have taken this computer completely apart and reassembled it and when I boot it up I still get the beeps and the monitor will not respond. I have double checked all the jumpers. Any clue to what this could be?
 

A:Installed Expansion Card

From that pattern, it sounds like a video problem.
Might be the Video Cards is loose in the socket. Take it out and try reinstalling it again. Also, check to see if there is any dirt/etc. on the contacts. An old trick is to use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts. Likewise, blow out any dust/etc. in system.

Also, does it work without the SMC network card installed?

Another possibility is that it got a static charge when you were installing the network card.If that happened, the only thing that you can do is replace it.

Hope this helps

I bought a Seagate Expansion 5TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive.
 
Not that it's really relevant to explain that other than to illustrate how important it is that I don't blow the thing up, but I bought it to create a disk image in Macrium Reflect Home Edition v6 (which I did), in preparation for upgrading from Win7 to Win10, just in case things go very badly when I do that.
 
But I notice that when it's plugged in and I right-click on it in Windows Explorer, no "Eject" option appears in the drop-down menu.
 
So I just unplugged it.
 
Is "Eject" just not appearing because an expansion drive is made in such a way that no preparation is needed before safely unplugging it?
 
Or am I risking data loss or worse by unplugging it without preparation?

Well, The sound card may be frying evrything it gets into. Is this a new card, or have you had it for a while? Check to see if you can still use those pci slots for anything else, because like I said before, its probably frying the slots. Which means you may need to get a new soundcard, and a new motherboard(but both may be under warrenty, so dont worry to much)

I have run into a problem with my PCI Expansion Ports

I have been using a 3 port USB PCI Card. The other day, any device plugged into the card quit working.

Did some troubleshooting, and found out that the card is receiving power only, and is not transmitting any data. Some of the USB Devices I have - Printer, Flash Drive, USB Hdd, USB Wifi Adapter, Mouse, keyboard, Sidewinder Control stick, webcam, and a UPS.

I plugged each one into the card, and they all received power, but no data. Windows is not detecting that the device is plugged in, but the device does light up the LED's

I do not have any other PCI cards to test to see if it is the Card, or the ports that are bad. It is doing the same thing on both of the PCI slots on my Motherboard.

All of the other USB ports are working fine.

Without testing in another computer I'd assume the card is bad. I went a different way, put a 4-port USB Hub in the floppy drive bracket on the front of the computer, connects to the internal power supply and the data cable plugs into a USB port on the back. I do have a couple of the PCI Add-in cards salvaged from other computers but like the front ports for accessibility.
