Preferred Solution: media server software disabling pci-e slots

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ment to mention, the media server software dosnt work after a couple of reboots either.

i have all my music and what not on my PC, but i want to stream it to my PS3. i am currently using "simple centre" the free edition BUT its very awkward as ps3's only play .mp3's whereas all my music is in .aac

thanks in advance

I have USB 3.0 slots in my Dell Laptop. My desktop has a couple of these, too, but also a number that are USB 2.0. The Hauppauge HD-DVR and Media Center remote which work fine when used with USB 2.0 slots don't work in USB 3.0 slots.

Is this a known problem? Are there any solutions?

Second, is there a way to disable the use of themes for WindowsXP Pro for my active directory users?

We have several older computers that would benefit from disabling the theme. The users do not have the permissions to do this themselves. Is there a way to do this via group policy on my domain controler?

Hello, I use a web accelerator called ExpressLink. When I connect to the Internet the proxy server setting is getting turned on automatically even though
it is not necessary when using the accelerator. If I disable the proxy server setting, it usually gets turned on again. I do not have any ISP software
installed. I have tried setting my connection to "Never dial a connection." but as soon as the accelerator starts the proxy server setting turns on. How do I keep this from happening? I am using Windows XP Home.

A:Disabling the Proxy Server Setting

The accelerator IS the proxy. The proxy settings probably look like "localhost:8080" or something like that, right? If that's the case, you would need to disable the accelerator, which is probably not something you want to do anyway, so you will need to leave the proxy settings enabled.

Alright my situation relates to tune up pc 2013. Its a special software that allows me to disable drivers, softwares, anything that takes up memory. My problem is some software and applications will not run such as the ability for my computer to read sd cards.

Now my question is how to disable tune up pc? It will not let me close it and I looked everywhere on google about this topic but all I could find is to uninstall it since I still want to keep it on.

A:Disabling software temporarily

As far as I remember (and at least for version 2012) it installs a service and keeps it running all the time. Look in the computer services for tuneup, and you may be able to disable them all. Note that as soon as you run Tuneup again, it will reenable all those again.

What password do you want to disable? Is it the BIOS/CMOS Setup password? If yes, then can you boot to windows without any problems? This is a program called Kill CMOS which could help in disabling the password!

Is there any way I can completely disable windows media player so that you can't click/select/or right click on a file or dvd drive or anything and be able to play it. A way where I could disable and enable it at anytime I want.
The reason is because my nephew watches movies on my computer with it but he would always pause a movie and leave it that way for hours and hours (while I was away at work). Since the disc was spinning and still being read (paused) for hours on end, after about two months my dvd drive burned out and died. I want him to be able to use my computer while I'm gone but he never listens to me and stop/save whatever movie he's watching like I taught him. So I know it's just a matter of time before this new drive gets cooked again.

Hi! Everytime Windows XP starts up, it automatically opens Windows Media Player. I tried researching on how to disable this. I found as much as this:

start up - run - type 'msconfig'- and go to the start up tab.

I've gotten that far. However, under the start up tab's list of files, none of them are obvious to being the one to disable windows media player. I don't want to disable them all either.

Which of these files belongs to Windows Media Player

Security firm Symantec has warned customers to stop using its pcAnywhere software.The company confirmed that "old" source code stolen by a hacking group had exposed vulnerabilities in the remote access program.An advisory note on Symantec's website explained how to minimise risks for customers who used pcAnywhere for "business-critical purposes".Other software from the company is not at a heightened risk, Symantec said.More:

A:Symantec advises disabling pcAnywhere software

Oh well, guess they released some security patch for that pcanywhere code leak and it supposed to be safe to use it now.

What actually seems weird to me is that the pcanywhere code was stolen in 2006 and they only come clean about the whole deal now in 2012, almost six years later.

Since we're speaking about this software program, I came across some news on a new audials anywhere program that will enable one to access files anywhere or something similar to this, as far as I managed to find out.

Looked useful and I wanted to know if it is in any way related to pcanywhere, I definitely do not want to have anything to do with them after this stunt.

I recently bought a Samsung P2 music player. However I am having trouble connecting it to my computer. I plug it into the usb and it runs fine for a few seconds. It is when windows vista tries to install new driver/software that the player stops working and i get a "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" error. Does anyone know how to fix the problem or at least how to make it so that windows does not install the new driver everytime i plug it in. I have tried going into advanced system settings and set it to never check for drivers when i connect a device, but this didnt stop it from installing the new driver. Thanks

You might check the samsung website for a updated driver and install it
Sounds like windows is loading an incompatable driver.

I've just installed a wireless Belkin Print Server and having several problems. There are 3 computers, 2 on Windows 2000 and a lap top on XP. At first 2 of the printers could print fine. Then I downloaded the printdrivers for the HP 6110 on to the 3rd machine. Since then the drivers have been deleted from the other 2 computers - and the download version doesn't work. So now none of the computers can print.

I can reinstall the drivers - but what is to stop this happpening all over again?

The network is wireless (netgear) using BT Broadband. Can any one suggest what I can do to retsore the printer - incidentally after the pc drivers disappeared I checked the lap top and it was fine until it was switched on - it worked once then went teh same way as the others...Can anyone help?

A:Wireless Belkin print server appears to be disabling all the printer drivers



I was wondering if you have managed to sort your problem out, as I am suffering from excatly the same issue. The help desk of Belkin was not use, as t hey suggested that I go and buy another printer!!

A:Malware? Firefox crashes, IE redirects, blocking / disabling antivirus software

OK, one of the things that WOULD run was VundoFix - May not have been the smartest thing in the world to try without really knowing what I was getting into, but I figured a "scan only" wouldn't cause a problem. I left VundoFix running last night, and at some point, Windows restarted due to an update the darn thing installed all by its lonesome. It doesn't appear VundoFix left a log of any kind - I don't know where it normally saves something like that, though.

Today, I come home from work and am pleasantly surprised by being able to load , and Firefox has not crashed yet (in comparison, it had been crashing anywhere from immediately to a minute after I loaded it).

However, I still received a message just a moment ago that Symantec was disabled (but the system tray icon still looks like it's not disabled).

Anyway, I don't want to jump the gun, because I'm not sure whether I'm cured at this point or not!

I was just able to get MBAM to load by copying everything from its original installed folder to a different folder and renaming it. I'll see if it finds anything - I intend to run RKill, then MBAM, from "normal mode" (non-Safe Mode).

Another symptom I forgot to list above - I was unable to download Super AntiSpyware. Today I am able to do so, so I will try that as well. I will also try installing Spybot S&D to see if it will allow that.

Will update once I have those things run.

Recently, I have come across several pieces of software that say they require media player 9 to work. 1 was even microsofts news clips on the msn in web site. Another is a learnkey learning disk. I have media player 10, but for some reason, the software on both ends won't work. When I go to install 9, it tells me a greater version is already installed, and it won't let me go to 9, however the software continually tells me that I need 9. Any advice appreciated.

Please do not use MSCONFIG for changing settings in Windows. It's intended to be a troubleshooting tool and I've seen a couple of instances where it really messes things up for the OS. Instead use the free program Autoruns from Microsoft ( Autoruns for Windows ) to make permanent changes to settings.

Ok, im new to this site and also pc's, so dont go using all these pc terms.

I saw that you can disable an integrated card. I have an intel extreme graphics 2 card, but it wont let me play Battlefield 2 on it.

I have a Compaq 2700, intel 4, my chipset is intel i865P/PE/G/i848P.

CAn someone tell me how to disable it; what would be the best graphics card to buy; or if i can install a graphics card even though i stil have my integrated one?

Thx for taking the time.

Check on the compaq website for your system to see whether the graphics can be upgraded.

I have a Playstation 3 that I want to stream 1080p .mkv files to. My computer's GPU isn't strong enough to play 1080p on my computer (Yes I know, I'm outdated)

Since the PS3 doesn't natively support .mkvs, I've read that my only options are to convert the file (Which takes hours and suffers quality loss) or stream it using a media server. I tried the latter. I've tried Tversity Pro and Universal Media Server. Both stream in 1080p but it lags horribly and makes the video unwatchable.

Yes this involved my Playstation 3 but I felt that it belongs here since I'm asking for a software recommendation and not a question about the Playstation itself.

So! I'm asking if anyone has a suggestion for a media server that doesn't have this issue. I just installed a new router recently and my PS3 and PC both are running on 100 Mbps cables so latency shouldn't be an issue.

Thanks in advance.

Which OS should I choose? I'm open to all suggestions (Win or Linux). I just need it to stream music and movies to my Xbox and laptop. I've already tried them all but I just can't seem to stay with one. What are your thoughts?

Alright, I'm in need of serious help! I don't know what else to do. So, I accidentally deleted the admin. account, well its not deleted I changed it to standard. Which was so STUPID and I didn't know the consequences until now :\ I can't change anything due to the whole RA Media Server thing that continues to pop up. I've searched and know many people have this problem, and some solutions work better for others. For example, when people say they deleted the account? How is that possible, when they still ask me for the pw? :\
PLEASE Someone Help Me! Thanks for reading.

Hi all,

I'm interested in setting up a media server in my house where I can access pictures, music and video from devices throughout my house wirelessly. I have an old pc that I'd like to use. I also might be able to obtain an HP Proliant ML350 for this. That machine has I believe six HD bays so I'm going to try to get that one. Either way, I'm looking for a good overview of what I'm going to need to do to accomplish this. Does anyone know of a good link or perhaps you've done it yourself and can help. I have a Linksys E3000 that has a USB port that you can plug a media storage device into but I'm wondering if a server or PC can be plugged into a USB drive.

Anyway, any help is appreciated.

A:Building a media server


The good news is that you wont be spending 5g's on a system. More like $1000 or less due to the fact that you dont need to buy a monitor or monster video card, unless you plan on gaming with the media center on your tv.

About the knobs and such, unless it is a high end media center case $300 or so the fuctuality of these knobs and other devices are is rather limited and basically usless. Most people that have media centers usually use a wireless keyboard and mouse, or one of these fancy remotes that offer a great amout of functuality in a media center.

A compact liquid cooling device is going to be your best bet for this type of application if you plan on sticking the media center into a stereo cabinet with limited ventilation. Or you can look at an option like this that is a liquid cooling system that sits outside your case like this and can easily be hidden behind your cabinets

But I still reccomend having atleast 2 case fans in your system to dispell any additional heat. These can be nearly silent. Then dont need to move much air, just give a bit of circulation.

The SSD will be a waste. You don't need the performance it offers especially for the high cost and you'll save more power by simply running the OS off the 2TB Green drive.

Shoutcast and Live365 will both let you do this. Shoutcast is a free plugin that runs through winamp while live365 requires a monthly fee which will vary depending on if it's personal or business.

I'd recommend a highspeed 'net connection if you don't already have one.

Not sure which area of the forum to post this, and thought the networking was probably the most relevant.

I've built a home media server using a little AMD 5350 on a mini ITX board.

I installed Windows 10 on it this week as I couldn't get my head around Linux at all.

I'm now running the box as a headless media server, as it's all updated and configured, however I can't seem to RDP into it at all when it's headless.

As soon as I connect it back to a monitor, and reboot it, RDP is fine.

Is there a setting I'm missing, or can you not run Windows 10 on a headless machine?

So the other day we were trying to find some music on the computer through the ps3 which seems to be hit or miss some times, however the ps3 seems to find the two lap tops with no problem. So I went in to the "choose media streaming options for computers and devices" and removed the unknown devices thinking that like any other wireless or blue tooth, that they would be discoverable again and guess what..... they dont show up. This is extremely frustrating. So is there anyway to have this show up all the time on the ps3. Also we have playon and that doesn't always work either. I think that if I can get a more consistent connection between the two that play on will work as well.

Any advice is well received

Getting used to the Domain Environment I setup a media server running Vista Ultimate 32-bit and I'm looking for other solutions or if there is anything I could do better to run this from home.

I have a 2k3 DC setup with about 50 users via active directory who VPN's PPTP (for now) then accesses the media resources, mostly movies, music, etc.

Everything works fine except now I'm really getting a good learning on bandwidth. I have a docsis 3.0 modem with a 22 down and 5 up I believe connection and when they open a movie it takes approximately 2-5 minutes before it actually starts playing and even then it's a bit choppy off and on.

I just bought a new Linksys RVS4000 GB Security Router with VPN for this specific setup.
I'm open to any suggestions/advice and is all appreciated.

A:Media Server Bandwidth + 2k3

Where are these users connecting from? Lan or internet?
"22down and 5up", is this your bandwidth in Mbps? If so, that's the issue. Even if you have only 10 concurrent connections, that's a maximum of 0.5mbps each, a fair proportion of which isn't going to be useful payload, especially over a VPN.

You should use a hardware server; I would say, either get a router that has firewall enabled service or think about IPCOPS distro for linux; If you have an old computer around with two network cards, you can easily setup a firewall with no problem.

Hardware is always the way to go if your going to get a firewall; Cisco ASA or Pix if have alot of computer to protect;

I need to install web server software on my computer so I can preview web pages before uploading them. It saves all of that unnecessary upload time. I used to run XAMPP with XP Pro SP3. But in looking to download it again, it doesn't mention 7 as being compatible. The last OS listed is Vista. I would imagine XAMPP is probably compatible with 7, but I was wondering if anyone had any info on this, or maybe another suggestion for free open source server software I could use with 7?

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite?

I don't know if it would allow you to upload them just anywhere though, but I imagine that could be done separately, if needed.

I have been using an O2 Wireless Box II for some time with no problems at all, i had internet connectivity and was able to use the Windows Media Server on my PC (Windows Vista) to stream media to my PS3 and TV (ethernet on TV). I have recently acquired an O" Wireless Box III and have lost functionality of the media server, I have tried searching around the net but have found no viable solution. I have tried restarting the router and setting it back to factory settings but to no avail. I also have internet connectivity on both my PS3 and the TV (Samsung's [email protected]) so I know they are both connected to the router correctly and can see both devices from my PC. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A mysterious Universal Meadia Server folder in File Explorer. This folder has endless sub-folders called root. Any ideas what this is all about?

Check "add remove programs" and see if its listed. Sounds like you got hit by a drive by install.

I have a lot of mp3s and divx/.vob films that I want to be able to stream "real-time" from a storage location on my home network. I want to be able to access these files from a laptop connecting wirelessly to my router, although the "server" will connect to it through ethernet.

After wasting time/money with cr** NAS options I have been considering getting an old PC for next-to-nothing and connecting it via ethernet to my router, to use as a media server. What will I need in terms of software to allow the streaming (if this is the right word) of these files over the home network? Will I need special software on my laptop to facilitate this, or only on the server. Does it depend on my router's capability?

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks
