    Proper way to configure a network?

    I seem to have this problem on and off, and it's been happening since I had XP, then when I had Vista, and now when I have 7. I can never have my network working properly =(. Sometimes using computer names (\\comp_name) works, other times I have to force it by using the IP address because the...

    Any idea on how I can open this PDB file?

    Hey guys ^_^ I downloaded this PDB file from my school's website, and it contains the scheduling database that we use to make our schedules every semester. I've been trying to open it with tons of programs that Google listed but couldn't find anything that could give me even a glimpse of...

    Desktop won't boot...

    So one of my PCs here at home decided to stop booting. Everything spins up but I get no video signal when I press the power button. The HDD led is constantly on and nothing else happens. I started testing the components and everything seems to be working. This is what I did: - Checked the CPU...

    Vista to Vista File Sharing Not Working

    Wow I haven't posted in a long time... I got myself a Media Center PC where I put all my torrents and whatnot. I'm trying to set up a shared folder on my laptop (Vista Business) so that I can add it to the Watched Folders on the Media Center PC (Vista Home Premium). Unfortunately the share...

    Laptop freezes and unfreezes when tilted...

    Hey guys... I'm having a very weird issue with my laptop as of two days ago. I notice that sometimes, it just freezes and there is no activity. The CPU (I can hear it processing if it's quiet enough and I put it on High Performance profile), mouse, everything stops working and the screen just...

    ASP Woes in Vista

    We're starting ASP in school, and the computers are running WinXP Pro (which I think comes with IIS 6). Anyways, we're playing around with opening and writing to text files, so I wrote this piece of code: <% Option Explicit %> <html> <head> <title> Text Data Files </title>...

    Can't finish Vista install because of a BSOD

    I'm trying to install Vista on a Dell Dimension 8300 and I can't finish a Vista installation because nvlddmkm.sys crashes, and it's just looping over and over. Is there anyway I can finish this? I figured I could try to force Vista into booting with VGA mode, and then I can just install the...

    Alternative to Windows Movie Maker?

    I wanna make some simple movies but since my video card doesn't have WDDM drivers (thanks a lot Intel :dead: ), I can't start up Windows Movie Maker :( Are there any free (and easy to use) alternatives out there that I can get instead?

    Beta Intel Drivers

    I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one that wants to have Aero Glass running on an Intel 915 chipset. I've been reading everywhere and some people have had success getting it to run by forcing the Intel Lakeport drivers (which came in pre-RC builds). Is there anyone that can post those in a zip...

    Speed Up Vista Indexing

    I added a couple of folders in the indexing options (pics and music), but whenever I search for something that's inside them, I never get any results (I enabled the appropriate options for these folders to be indexed). I decided to rebuild the index, and it always says "Indexing speed is reduced...

    Force Windows Update install

    So I checked WU this morning and noticed that there was an optional update for my Intel 915 graphics card. I figured I'd install it, in the very vague hope that Intel actually wrote a WDDM driver (which they should, since the 915 fully supports all of Aero Glass' requirements). It tried...

    Wireless Network Profiles, how?

    I'm trying to set up different network profiles for my home wireless and school wireless networks. At home I want to use a static IP and custom DNS settings, while at school I want it to switch to automatic for both. I know Vista comes with a feature to do this, but I haven't been able to find...

    Install size and hardware reqs

    On Wednesday I finished installing the Ultimate edition on my desktop. As soon as I booted into the Vista desktop I checked how much was taken on the hard drive (separate hard drive from XP), and it said 29.8 gigs. I want to install Vista on my laptop now, but there's no way I can triple-boot XP...

    Windows - Corrupt File

    I'm doing tech support for a client, and he's been getting this little balloon that says Windows - Corrupt File PATH_NAME. He used to have this problem when he got himself a new hard drive, and we had to exchange the hard drive. It's been working fine for over a year now, and he started getting...

    Laptop speaker might be blown?

    The left speaker of my laptop is sounding strange. I don't know how to describe the sound it makes though. The music and sounds play, but along with it is also a sort of buzzing sound, kinda scratchy...as I said, hard to describe. I could record it if needed. Anyways, my question is, would the...

    Yesterday I could use FF (1.5.0.6) perfect, all the engines I had added were working and AFAIK, my bookmarks were also there. Today I brought back my laptop from hibernation, and upon starting FF, I noticed that the search engine icon had change. I clicked on the icon, and all the engines were...

    Is 1.5gb really worth it?

    I'm gonna take a trip to Seattle next week (DigiPen Summer Workshop ;) ) and I'm gonna take the opportunity to increase the RAM on my laptop. I currently have 768 megs, and I was wondering if the difference between 1gb vs 1.5gb is worth it. Of course it'd be cheaper to toss out the 256mb module...

    Pentium M CPU Question

    As you can see, I have a laptop with a Pentium M 730 CPU (1.6 ghz). CPU-Z shows that it uses the mPGA-479M package. I (stupidly, I know) bought a Pentium M 760 CPU (2.0 ghz) off eBay, and assumed it also had the same package. After paying for it, I decided to look at the properties of said...

    How to output pages according to data given?

    I recently got a Chinese Water Dragon from a family who couldn't take care of it anymore. In order to track what I do to take care of it, my gf provided me with some log sheets to fill out, which contain information like if it ate the food that was offered, if droppings were found in the tank...
