i agree to d/l the free program cpu-z. i have 8gb of memory also and when you open it..go to the "memory" tab and look for "dual." i have a 1066fsb(qx6700 quad) and have my memory running at 333mhz. are you saying my memory would be better at 266mhz timings instead?
You could expand your boot partition w/ space from your other partition w/ the following program but its not free with our vista x64: http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/resize-vista-partition.htm. this is a great program though because vista disk management wont let you expand that boot...
i did read it and all i see is general statements like "i tried to copy or expand the file but didnt work." i could probably be of more help if i could get exact commands that were entered. ive repaired a laptop recently w/ this same error, w/o spending hardly any time on it.
well, follow this link(http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000465.htm#b) and when you get to step 6, do the following command: copy x:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\ (where x is your cd drive letter of where your xp cd is in and c is your hdd)
my friend gave me his girlfriends dell laptop to fix several months back that had this same error. Just to explain what was happening after the bios logo passed, it would go right to a black screen with that error message on top saying hal.dll file is corrupt or missing. i was able to fix it and...
hi all. i setup my win xp home desktop(1) to share a printer for my home n/w.(wep enabled) i also have another win xp pro desktop(2) and a win vista laptop(3). i AM able to print to that printer ONLY when the desktop(1) is on. is that how its supposed to be?
Ex Im on laptop in my living room...
if i read that correctly. the router itself has to have the wireless capability so that your laptop could access the internet. sounds like your desktop has ethernet from modem to router to desktop. it doesnt need wireless card.
for the IE browser: Tools, Internet options, content tab, autocomplete settings, uncheck all. also dont 4get to delete all history and saved passwds. you mightve known this info already but just thought id help just in case.
hehe, i had to change the channel on my linksys modem/router like 3 times before my 2 wireless pcs would pick up the signal every time. all has been great for wks!! my brother has a belkin router, in which he only uses for ps2, but it works great. hope you get yours working bud!
i just got cable internet and now some of the images im used to seeing on web pages are no longer appearing. it was the same way before i installed the earthlink accelerator when i had dialup. that accelerator really helped out. does any1 know of a good free or cheap internet accelerator for...
you may have to do what was mentioned above. hehe, i work at comcast. another option: if you double-click NIS in system tray and go to Personal Firewall, Configure....see if outlook is mentioned and that it IS permitting Outlook to work.
it said the same thing for my friends dell cpu bought a yr and a half ago. that pixel shader 2.0 is used for the Aero glass stuff.
my cpu is 'A' ok although i heard you have to buy another video card for directx10.
this is the first amd cpu i bought and i was definetely scared by that 256L2 cache size on some of them. i got a 512L2 cache. in 5 or so yrs, ill get like a 6MB cache and 64bit cpu which is when they should be more common.
Re: Automatic Windows Updates
liol, i was getting the 6th/9th update earlier and i noticed it had just paused for 5m. i ended up stopping and updating an hr later. yeah, thats a busy site. i guess thats better than what the vista beta 2 site is going through.
