    Server 2k3 - ftp can't connect

    I've got a router/gateway machine running server 2k3 here. My experience with windows servers is a bit limited; I'm more used to openbsd and linux servers. Anyway, it's running fine as a router and everything seems great. It's using the DHCP and Routing and Remote Access services and it's...

    No signal when using dvi-->hdmi

    I recently picked up two dvi-->hdmi cables for use with two of my computers. One of the setups is my htpc (with a gf4 ti4200 running win2k) running to a westinghouse 32" hdtv. It works beautifully going to the hdmi port. The other setup, however, does not. It's a 9600gso running win7 rtm...

    win7 rtm: "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing"

    I got win7 rtm from MSDNAA and I'm having a very bizarre issue trying to install it. When it gets to the part when it shows the hard disks it says "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing" and prompts me to insert a disk or usb drive. I understand that this means it needs sata/raid...

    front usb doesn't work in win7

    I've come across a very bizarre problem on one of my rigs. Here's the specs: MSI P4M890M-L (basic 775 mobo, via chipset) E2140 2GB DDRII-667 Radeon X850XT-PE Sound Blaster Audigy Samsung 640GB In XP, the front usb ports work fine. On a linux livecd they also work. In Windows 7...

    Win7 upgrade questions

    I know there have been a million threads about Win7 upgrades but they all end up digressing into pointless fighting about what will happen to people's XP keys. My question has nothing to do with this, so I started a new thread. I have two questions, though I realize it is entirely possible...

    Trade with me! 9600gso, AM2, DDR2, dual P3, ti4200

    OK I've got a few things that I don't need anymore. I hate paypal, so I'd really love to just arrange a trade with someone. I know people love to trade things and many FS threads aren't looking for trades, but I am! what I have to trade EVGA 9600GSO 384MB. This is the good 96 shader one...

    verizon emails sometimes take forever

    I have a Verizon SMT5800 (HTC Libra, whatever you want to call it) with the unlimited data plan and I've been quite happy with it. I know windows mobile 6 has some mixed reviews, but overall I really like it. Anyway, there is one annoyance: emails seem to take a completely random amount of...

    awesome deal on H&D2

    I was at my local Gamestop today and they had a big bucket of old games on super-sale. Most of them were crap but there were a few copies of Hidden and Dangerous 2 for 99 cents. That's right, 99 cents. I loved the original H&D back in the day, but I don't really know anything about the second...

    are vista msdn and retail keys the same?

    Ok here's the deal. I have a copy of Vista Business from MSDNAA at my university. The ISO that they gave us to download is, of course, the 32-bit version. I'm aware that the keys work for both 32 and 64 bit versions. However, if I wanted to install 64-bit using my MSDNAA key, what kind of...

    Best way to migrate windows across drives?

    Okay, here's the scenario. My girlfriend's computer's main drive is an old 120 GB seagate. It's starting to make some odd noises and hdtach performance is somewhat erratic across the drive. I'm starting to worry about the drive's health. SMART says its fine, but we all know that doesn't mean...

    Check record character length in Access?

    I'm at work and I've been handed a ~2000 record Access database to fix. It's a database of addresses for a mailing list and the problem is that whoever made the thing to begin with didn't realize that the mailing house only allows 59 characters per field, and some of them are longer than than...

    Power adapter makes chirping noise

    I've got an old-but-damn-near-indestructible thinkpad x24 that's been serving me well for years. Well recently, I've been having an issue with the ac adapter: sometimes it will suddenly act like it's not plugged in (i.e. the power cable is still plugged in but the laptop says its running on...

    wanted: agp card, socket a mobo

    okay, I'm looking for two things. 1. a socket A mobo. doesn't need to be anything spectacular, it just needs to be able to run an athlon xp 2000+ (tbred-a) and ddr ram. Oh and an agp slot would be nice. Doesn't need SATA or anything but if you've got one that has it then that would be...

    Alright I've got a couple things for sale: 1. New Sapphire X850XT-PE. Fresh back from RMA. I sent them a regular x850xt, they sent me back a new shiny x850xt-pe. I'm not gonna complain. Because of this, it is bare card + DVI-->VGA adapter only (well, and a nice brown box with packing...

    WTB: Old PCI Radeon

    k, I have a rather odd request for something: I need an old radeon (less than or equal to a radeon 9250) card, and it must be PCI format with DVI output. I know it's a rather specific request, but I know what I want and that's it. Other than that I'm not picky...speed is not exceptionally...

    okay, I've got a friend (and yes it actually is a friend...I'm not just saying that to cover for myself. I run linux anyway :p ) who is running a vlk version of windows xp pro using a pirated cd key. Through her school she got a legitimate version of windows xp pro via MSDNAA and she wants to...

    How does G80 handle DX9?

    In all of the G80 hype I've seen nothing but people touting the amazingness of the new DX10 features, the new restyled "pipeline" design, and so on. However, it has left me wondering one thing: How does G80 process DirectX9 code? Surely DirectX9 doesn't know how to properly use the DX10-class...

    Alrighty I really want a small form factor box or a mac mini. I'm not really picky at all...just anything that is very small and very quiet. AGP-based is fine, G4 mac minis are fine, just throw me some offers. If it's a SFF then it doesn't have to be complete...I just want at least the box /...

    I've got a 512mb x1800xt here up for sale. Reason why? I hardly game any more, and my college coursework demands it stays that way. Had it since late June, never been OC'd or had anything funky done with it. Comes with all original items in mint condition, all of the accessories are even...

    Throttling Mayhem

    Okay, so I've been messing around with my 560J a bit more and unfortunately I've discovered some interesting throttling characteristics of this particular chip. It starts throttling FAR before it should. According to Intel's sSpec for this chip (SL7Q2 ) it has a thermal guideline of 72.8C...

    constant wireless activity

    I've noticed some unusual activity on my thinkpad x24 when I'm in linux. Whenever my wireless connection (eth1) is up it constantly has network activity, no matter what. Even if no networking apps are open there is constantly ~10 KB/s of network activity (as measured by gkrellm) over my...

    P4 560J on stock cooler : 4.1ghz

    IL8 VERY sensitve to FSB

    Alright so I'm currently running a p4 560J on an Abit IL8 (945P). I know that 945P for whatever reason tends to be kind of a picky chipset about fsb speeds but this is a little ridiculous. The cpu and board run rock-solid prime-stable at 224fsb (which is just a tad over 4.0ghz) at stock...

    FS: 2 x 6800 ultra pci-e

    Alright, so I've come to a kind of saddening conclusion: I hardly game anymore. I barely play any games anymore, and so my poor 6800 ultras are sitting here untapped most of the time. So, I think it's time to pass them on to someone who will get better use out of them. I have two eVGA 6800...

    Pentium 3 cache latency: odd results

    So I've been playing around on my dual P3 box and I decided to run cpu-z's cache latency tool, and it gives some interesting results. These are coppermines with 32kb L1 and 256kb full-speed L2. It reports those two cache sizes correctly, but it also reports a 128kb cache in between the two...

    f.e.a.r SLI seems broken

    I'm currently running the 81.85 drivers, and SLI seems to be *somewhat* functional, but not entirely in FEAR. By default it uses SFR, which for the most part seems to work, but whenever certain types of things are in the scene (like water, for example) the bar just sits at the bottom of the...
