    Laser Jet printers

    Cost aside, I dislike inkjet printers as the ink can easily smudge. I mainly deal with documents so I prefer using laserjet.

    Hard drive problem

    Ran Memtest no probs. Tried to use Win XP CD repair function. However, it asks me for an admin password (which I don't have nor did I set one in the first place). I pressed enter but it goes back to C:\Windows :confused:

    Hard drive problem

    The slave drive is removed. C drive is running but takes forever to load windows but eventually will get there. I don't hear the clicking sound anymore. Will do a memtest and report back.

    Hard drive problem

    I disconnected the slave drive and got C drive to run properly. However its taking a lot longer to load windows than usual. I ran CC cleaner, pressed "analyze" not "clean" and suddenly get the blue screen of death again but this time a different message: Dumping physical memory to disk...

    Hard drive problem

    How do I run the results on WDDiag when the hard disk fails to work properly? I have another empty HDD running as slave but the main drive would start clicking once the computer powers on. I don't know whether I can do a full backup.

    My PC suddenly stopped working and would freeze before the Windows login screen. (XP Pro SP3) The hard drive light indicates activity but I hear a weird clicking sound and seems like its struggling to power on. (I see the windows bar keep moving though) The fans however are not affected so I...

    USB hub doesn't work with WinXP?!

    Thanks for the input guys. I guess its not providing as much power but my other laptop running Vista has enough power? Would you suggest getting another higher quality USB hub? Wouldn't the outcome be the same?

    USB hub doesn't work with WinXP?!

    So I bought a cheap 4 port USB hub that is 2.0 compatible. I figured it is a simple plug and play procedure but WinXP Pro SP2 doesn't seem to recognize it. :confused: I plug it into the USB port and get an error message: "USB Device Not Recognized, one of more USB devices has malfunctioned...

    Under Computer Management > Event Viewer, I get an error message which states "unable to complete the operation on "system". The interface is unknown. This is the same for application, IE, Security. :mad::mad:

    OS freezes during startup?!

    To set it to run as administrator, do I uncheck the box "protect my computer and data from unauthorized program activity"? It seems something is blocking me from running as administrator. Because that access denied message is still there when I want to change something in msconfig. (I...

    OS freezes during startup?!

    btw whenever I change something in msconfig, I get a message stating "An access denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using administrator account to make specified changes". Which seems weird because I'm using an admin account. Ironically, after...

    Don't think thats the problem as Safe mode with networking works. I tried nevertheless.

    OS freezes during startup?!

    Unplugged both DVDRWs... Disconnected the soundcard, floppy drive and firewire. Changed graphics card, updated new drivers. The damn thing still freezes during windows startup. I guess that rules out any hardware issues.

    Tried booting into VGA mode, doesn't solve the problem. Also tried uninstalling the video drivers. Seems I'm running out of options...only safe mode works.

    OS freezes during startup?!

    Thanks for the suggestions. Tried the system restore point but it didn't work. One thing I noticed is when I choose system restore point again, all previous store points are gone. :eek: Also did the "heavy handed approach". I disabled some of the start up aps but all seem normal to me...

    OS freezes during startup?!

    The computer boots up normally and I see the Windows XP logo. The status bar will move for a few seconds then it would freeze. The HDD indicator stays alight. (no flashing activity) Nothing happens after. When I restart the computer, I get a message from windows that it has not started...

    Budget new comp

    So I'm thinking of getting a new desktop but I want to keep costs down. I usually build my own comps but now a bit out of touch with new technologies. Dell is offering the Insprion 530 for $~750USD. Specs are: Intel Core 2 Quad Procs 2.4GHz Q6600 (G33 chipset) Windows Vista Basic SP1 No...

    Diagnose this problem. Help!

    I can't figure out whats causing the problem. The mouse would freeze for 10-20sec then goes back to normal again. This usually happens when I'm on Youtube but I'm thinking its just a coincidence. The speakers would buzz like the system hanged. Everything then back to normal again. I tried...

    AGP club

    I have my eye on Sapphire X1950Pro. Pictures shows the card uses two 4 pin molex power connectors. Does it require two connections to work? My PSU doesn't have enough connectors then :(

    I'm still using Radeon 9800 PRO. It runs BF2 fine but lags in multiplayer when theres lot of players. Whats the fastest AGP card out there? I'm thinking of getting X1950Pro 512MB DDR3 or 7600GS?

    Alternate cooling solution?

    My old P4 3GHz desktop uses the stock Intel heatsink and fan. After 4 years of use, it seems to get louder and the whine from the fan is intolerable. I'm thinking of changing it but have no idea what to replace it with. I have a Zalman AlCU 7000 for my Athlon XP. Its very quiet and I'm looking...

    Hey. I heard good things about DD-WRT so I flashed my Buffalo router (WHR-HP-G54) to the latest firmware (v23. SP2). Everything is working but my wireless connection drops frequently and its really getting on my nerves! If I leave my connection idle and then use it later, it wouldn't work and I...
