    Proper way to configure a network?

    That's pretty much what I have right now, except that one computer is running Vista, the other is running XP, and the rest are running 7. When you say I should set everything to default, what exactly is there to set?

    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...

    I'll try finding a stick of ram... I did disconnect all the data and power cables and tried booting like that but nothing worked. When I try to boot there's no blinking line/cursor in the upper left corner.

    Desktop won't boot...

    Okay, I just tested it with no cables (power and data) and no improvement. Something to add is that the keyboard LEDs can be turned on/off when the system is powered up.

    Desktop won't boot...

    I did that as well. I disconnected the power cables from the optical drives as well as the hard drives and got the same results.

    Desktop won't boot...

    I checked the video signal with both the integrated motherboard video as well as the dedicated card and it wouldn't work either way.

    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...

    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...

    I feared that would be the case... I definitely don't have the expertise to do that. I'm gonna have to look around Montreal for a place that could do such a thing >_<

    Laptop freezes and unfreezes when tilted...

    Cold solder joint? Hmm... I'll look into that. Is there a way to spot these or do I need special tools?

    Laptop freezes and unfreezes when tilted...

    A dry joint? What's a dry joint? xD I've never heard of that kind of piece on a laptop...

    Laptop freezes and unfreezes when tilted...

    I thought that too, but when I reseated the CPU I cleaned the heatsink and fan and applied new thermal paste as well. I doubt leaning my wrist on the right side of the touchpad remove heat (seeing as how doing that makes it unfreeze) :(

    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

    Sorry for taking so long to reply -_-. I had to take an emergency trip home... Anyways, thanks for replying ^_^. I'm not sure where to find this. I know that I can right click on the folder, and then I see the list of users for permissions. In said list, I saw a user called IISUSERS (or...

    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>...
