    Single to dualcore

    In my case, i've been using dual core for awhile now... I haven't used a program that required me to install any of those fixes due to issues. However, some other people have had issues using dual core. So I would say to not apply any fixes until a issue arises and then you should try those...

    When I installed my dual core Opteron 165 coming from single core, I simply dropped it in and windows did the necessary changes to the system. After which I restarted the system and that was that. No reinstalls or sorts needed.

    In the past when I was looking for hosting, I came upon I heard some goods and bads about it before. It has ASP hosting. The reviews I read were a long time ago, so I would recommend you look into more recent reviews before actually considering them. - hito

    Why is the WAN continuously in use while systems are down?

    Just curious as to what information is being sent back and forth from my router's WAN side to the internet. I always see the WAN light blinking even when the systems in my house are all off. What protocols are being used and sort of information being exchanged while all the systems are off? If...

    moving from winnie to an opty dualie -- is a full XP reinstall really necessary?

    I didn't have to remove the cpu from the device manager when I did it. The OS simply realized that the new cpu wasnt the old and did its thing. Autodetected to ACPI Multiprocessor and also the cpu's in the system.
