    Windows 8 drivers - manual install or automatic?

    My process has been the same from Win 98 to XP to Vista to 7. Install the OS and manually install drivers. The drivers I install are the Intel chipset, RST, Intel NIC, USB3, X-Fi, and CCC or Forceware. With Windows 8 I read something about USB3 drivers being included, so wondered at this point...

    AMD driver lockup

    I get random lock ups, my screen will freeze for about 5 seconds, turn black and come back on. I also get a notification that the video driver recovered from a lockup or something along those lines. It will happen watching a video or playing a game. Googling the issue I've tried the suggestion...

    Sonicwall Pro 2400 compared to Cisco IAD2400

    I know both of these are old and discontinued, currently we are using the Sonicwall here and have 5 locations connecting in with various other Sonicwall products. The owner of the company is looking to switch over to Cbeyond at all locations since they are a lot cheaper than Century Link. During...

    Forwarding domains

    Currently the company's domain address is quite long. It's just used for email and RDP connections, no website. I want to register a short domain address to use so that we do not have to give out a long address to people. We have an exchange server. Can I just have a domain forward emails to...

    Restarting DNS service

    An outside tech company came in to get iphone - exchange activesync working a few months ago. I noticed in the event viewer on the win2003 domain/dns/exchange server thousands of error 3015/3024. After some googling I figured out there was a conflict on a port which was being used by dns.exe. So...

    Help: RDP connection dropping VPN network

    Having trouble trying to figure out the issue here. So there is a warehouse which has the servers and 4 stores connecting through VPN with Sonicwalls. At first I thought the modem, router or switch needed to be power cycled as other stores weren't having issues. I'm thinking the issue is...

    Crucial m4: 2x 64GB RAID0 or 1x 128GB?

    Going into a new build with a Gigabyte P67 board. The RAID setup would only be $8 more. I know TRIM wouldn't work, but GC would keep them tidy. I don't really see any other con to go with the 64GB drives, or is there? Thanks.

    Corsair Carbide Series 500r - Now Available

    Newegg Link I think I may need to go with this one for my new build and use the 400r I already bought for another. I like the aggressive look of this case and the included side fan and fan controller. It also has a removable hard drive cage for extra long video cards. I'll probably go with...

    CPU "Budget Boy Wonder" So I was sitting on the crapper reading a free copy of CPU and saw a budget build with a 400R case. Exactly what I plan to do. So the first component they mentioned was a Core i5 2300. Seemed kind of silly when the...

    Exchange 2003 database size

    I'm trying to understand Exchange 2003. So from what I can understand by googling is that when a large mailbox is deleted, lets say 10GB, it does not free up space on the hard drive. Instead it adds 10GB of white space in the database. Also if I understand correctly an offline defrag must be...

I added the printer to the 1st server and shared it, but when a user connects to that printer while RDP'n to the software server it won't print. I noticed the names of...

    CPU for Home Server 2011

    I'm lookign to build a server mostly for storing / streaming media files. The Athlon X4 630 is $70 (OEM) and the Sandy Bridge Pentium G620 is $65 (Retail). The Pentium uses less power but I'm thinking the quad core may be better for a server. Then there's also the issue with chipsets. Does one...

    Question on Turbo mode & Speed Step

    I notice my mutli is constantly switching from 9 to 22. Is there a reason to leave Speed Step enabled if it's constantly changing? Also is there a way of testing turbo mode, as in seeing it hit 3.4 GHz on Core Temp? I tried running a single thread of prime95 but didn't see it change. Or should I...

    Best CODECs for Win7?

    Since Win7 has a lot of built in CODECs for videos now, what's missing? I remember reading the .MKV container wasn't supported, so what plug in should I use for this so WMP 12 can open it (I prefer WMP over VLC). And is there any other CODEC/container I will need a plug in for?
