    Thanks bbz_Ghost! That will help tremendously. I had disabled the plextools on my account, but forgot about it loading on her account. I used msconfig to disable the rest.

    Hung Process: How do I know?

    Windows XP SP2 I have two profiles on my Windows XP mine and my wifes. One day I noticed my computer was going REALLY slow. I opened the task manager to check to see what process was hung. Nothing was taking up any of the processing time. That is to say the System Idle was at 00 so there...

    Rise of the triad editing modding

    I absolutely LOVED the Hunter/Prey mode. The prey would have no weapon, and the huntewr would have a knife. You'd chase the prey, and try to rack up kills, but then the roles would change and the hunter would be come the prey. Very fun.

    One Way To Fight Back Over 2142 Spyware

    I didn't buy Battlefield 2 when it came out becaue it didn't have coop play. Me and my buddies liked to play BF 1942 against an AI only group of enemies. We didn't care about playing against other real people. We aren't hardcore gamers. We only play once a week for a few hours. We didn't...

    Old games you would like to see remade.

    Dell 2007WFP - Screenshot

    Warning!!! File size is 1.4 meg. I did the best I could. It took about ten shots to get this, but this was the clearest shot I got. It's actually not too far off from what I see.

    How should I save the image so eveyone can get a deifinitive look? Image shack has size limit of 1.5 and under. What format should I save it as? Maybe the raw picture from my camera will be below the limit?!?

    Dell 2007WFP - Screenshot

    Both images are screenshots. The first Dell 2007WFP I had was a A00, had severe banding, but the color was more vibrant and the text very crisp. I get A02, and the text looks blurry and pixelated. When I move in Guildwars, I notice a screen door effect only on A02. A02 also came with...

    Here's Yahoo. Maybe my expectations were to high. I can definitely see every pixel in every letter. As for the Clear Text, it looks awful on my monitor.

    Dell 2007 fp/fpw Banding issue.

    EVS, From a Dell Post: So here are the steps: - bring up the service menu (as mentioned before, power up while keeping both the menu and + buttons pressed. Once the monitor starts, press - to get the service menu) - for me, as soon as the service menu came up the rest of the screen...

    Dell 2007 fp/fpw Banding issue.

    I just received mine yesterday. I received a Rev A00, and it has banding issues like the thread originator (Snowdog's). :( Even without the tests, you can still see it. I PM'd Chris at Dell, and he mentioned I'm on the list to receive an updated one. Dell's policy of shipping a replacment...

    Non-Optical Mouse

    My 17 month old recently walked in my computer room, climbed up on the chair and was moving the mouse around. As I walked in, he was about to investigate the red shiny cool looking light under the item he was moving. I'm so glad I walked in when I did, if he would have looked directly at the...

    Infocom Games

    I was trying to figure out what technology those old Infocom games used. I'm curious on how they worked. They were totally text based, but somehow it seemed like it had some kind of AI. In Planetfall, the robot use to throw out weird quotes and stuff. As a kid, these games really enhcanced...

    Hardware and Software Firewalls: Why have both?!?

    Yogi, thanks for the information. You've given me a great framework to go by. Thanks! One thing though...With all that security in place, what's the best method of getting games to work with all those layers? I was thinking of getting a hardware router like my fathers, and was wondering...

    Hardware and Software Firewalls: Why have both?!?

    My father got a bad case of the Netsky virus. He something like 30,000 files infected. He had no idea his computer was being used as a peer-to-peer zombie. Thankfully, his ISP shut him down and told him he had a virus. I checked the machine with Stinger and got rid of all the viruses/trojans...

    Well, just as all of you stated, I had to start over on a clean drive. When I got everything hooked up, it would try to start Windows 2000, but would blue screen on me. The error message stated ,"Accessible_boot_drive". Anyway, I had a spare hard drive that I loaded Windows 2000 on and it...

    Via kt266a to Nforce2 A7NX8 Deluxe

    I'm upgrading my mobo from the ABIT KR7A-Raid to an ASUS a7NX8 Deluxe today. I'm trying to recall what I need to do to remove the VIA software from Windows 2000. I think it's something like 4in1 drivers or something. I think there's busmastering software too. What do I need to remove before...

    BF:V Slow Load Times

    I agree more ram would help, but I don't know if upgrading to PC2700 ram would help. Since my processor is an AMD 2000+ XP and runs at 266Mhz, I would assume getting ram over pc2100 (266Mhz) wouldn't help. I've read it's better to run your ram the same speed as your CPU's speed (AKA...

    By turning off the In-Game Music, Unselected High Quality Audio, and unselected Menu Music, I've cut the load times by 3/4. It's amazingly better than it was.
