    4850 no sound through HDMI with HP W2207h

    Yes, the part #6140063500G I mentioned above worked perfectly. Now I have sound through my monitor, although admittedly it kind of sounds like crap. But it's better than nothing.

    AMD statement regarding driver support for pre 5k cards:

    I would have guessed they'd move the 2000 and 3000 series cards to legacy but the 4000s? Some of the cards in the 4000 line had product in the retail channel 3 years ago. What is the limitation of the 4000 series that keeps it from playing with the 5000s and up?

    4850 no sound through HDMI with HP W2207h

    I just bought one on eBay for $7.32 + sales tax + shipping, ($10.03 total) we'll see what happens.

    4850 no sound through HDMI with HP W2207h

    You need DVI to HDMI dongle ATI/AMD part#6140063500G to make it work, apparently.

    4850 no sound through HDMI with HP W2207h

    So I am SOL then since my monitor doesn't have a DVI input, only HDMI and VGA? I'll see what I can find on Google.

    4850 no sound through HDMI with HP W2207h

    Hi, I am trying to use the integrated sound in my monitor but not having much luck. Specs are as in title, it's a Sapphire 4850 btw. I am using a DVI to HDMI converter on the back of the card, which I then plug my HDMI cable into that runs to the W2207h. I have the latest Catalyst drivers...

    Offsite backup software

    whew, I have 17TB to back up. $.90/GB?? I'm keeping my tape library and SATA arrays, way cheaper. $.90/GB would cost me $183,600 per year. At that point, the ROI on CommVault or NetBackup is in weeks, not months.

    DNS problems

    I've narrowed the problem down to the BIND secondaries, for sure. Unfortunately, I don't have access to those servers because they are run by an outsourced service provider. The service provider does not know what to do and is sort of throwing up his hands. I think we are going to bring up...

    RDP through VPN. Am I doing something dangerous?

    RDP over VPN is a lot safer than opening up actual CIFS/SMB file sharing and direct database access, etc to VPN users. You can't control end user's home workstations without investing in some sort of NAC which is expensive, so RDP is a good way to allow access at a low risk level. Users remote...

    300 people LAN advice

    That's quite a lot of 8 port switches you have there! My preference would be to just wire the whole thing from a couple of chassis switches, given that you have stated distances <100m. But big switches cost $$$.

    DNS problems

    But that's what I *don't* want it to do, is add any sort of suffix for sites that are not on the local domain.

    DNS problems

    It appears the problem must be in BIND as when I do nslookups directly against the BIND servers there are significant delays or timeouts. Firewall is an ASA.

    DNS problems

    I was looking through the DNS log in Windows and it seems that it's trying to append the local DNS suffix to some of it's queries. For example www.hardforum.com.xxxxx.local. Hmm.

    DNS problems

    I have a problem where recursive DNS lookups are taking a long time. My setup is, Windows/Active Directory DNS on the internal network, and BIND forwarders on the DMZ. The Windows hosts resolve internal queries themselves, and for things not on the local network (DMZ or Internet) they do...

    Hyper-V doesn't work on Core i5-760?

    Thanks, that worked!!! Can't believe I missed that setting. I feel like such a dolt! Oh well. Now, to install a LinuxVM :D
