    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...

    I can't find any options in the BIOS on this HP machine for enabling virtualization support. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Hyper-V but I got the same results. "Either VMX not present or not enabled in BIOS". UGHHHHhhhhhh. wonder if there's any 3rd party BIOS available for this...

    I found the solution on Monday: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2466753 The 2008R2 RTM build won't work on this particular hardware with RAID enabled and it's a known issue. I was able to get a 2008R2 SP1 .iso from MS as we are a Software Assurance customer. Installing it from that build...

    cannot install windows server 2008R2 on an ICH10 RAID1 setup

    Yes, I erased all partitions from the drive before attempting the install. I would think a 1TB mirror would be plenty to install WS2008R2.

    Best system deal with 21.6" or larger monitor?

    Interesting, but how much noise does it make? And what the heck is a UIDIMM? The additional 2GB of RAM to get to 4GB is $70, optical drive $30. Hmm. That's not so hot. I think this would be a good deal for myself but not so good for my friend.

    I'm looking to assist a friend with a PC purchase. She wants to buy now that Windows 7 is out. Seems that all the deals on slickdeals are dead, they did have a Dell with a 24" for $484 shipped but it's dead. Desired specs: Major brand name vendor - I'm not going to build one for her, no...

    Windows XP Gets Another Extension

    Why would a university not have either software assurance or a campus agreement? Both would allow you to run any version of Windows that you saw fit, and with the educational discount it's dirt arse cheap.

    Anyone went from nvida to ati or vise versa and did you like the change?

    Me too, so what's your point? I didn't realize we had to account for our activities all the way back to the time before Nvidia and ATI being the duopoly they are today. I'll see your 3dfx and raise you a Number Nine Vesa Local Bus card. Or maybe an S3 Trident 2MB ISA VGA card. I think it...

    Anyone went from nvida to ati or vise versa and did you like the change?

    I've never owned anything but Nvidia cards until my current 4850. I'm really happy with this card. I have tweaked the fan speeds to lower the GPU temps but that's it.

    The highly rated HP Pavilion Slimline PC thread

    You need to upgrade your RAM, 1GB is not enough to run Vista IMO. You'll be happier with 2GB, 4GB is ideal and the most that the Slimlines can support. The OS will only see about 3.25 GB of it though.

    Yes, we only allow remote desktop over my organization's VPN. This neatly avoids issues with remote file access. We allow remote desktop to desktops or servers, based on your access level. Most people just hit their desktops only. Of course this requires leaving the PC's on all the time...

    Basic Sub-$500 Build for a Friend

    Fail. You did not comprehend what I posted. XP will never get close to utilizing 4GB unless you're running multiple virtual machines. For most users there's no need for anything beyond 2. I have a dual boot setup with 5GB at work, XP sees 3.25 but never uses more than a GB under any...

    Basic Sub-$500 Build for a Friend

    I agree with this poster. If I was building a basic system I would go with one from a major oem on sale. Couple weeks ago you could get a Dell system with a 21.5 monitor for about your quoted price budget. Can't beat that. Also, if you are running XP, why in the world are you getting 4GB...

    Toms takes a look at 32bit vs 64 bit gaming.

    I would not do business with a company that ran production systems on 16 bit code, it would probably be chock full of vulnerabilities that would generate multiple audit findings and thusly many headaches for me.
