just bought a couple of tripp lite, my question is how to auto shut the computer properly after the battery drains out when the computer is not attended by the user, is there any software or setting to be applied to enable the computer shuts down itself when the UPS battery level reachs to the end?
a p4 2.4 socket 478, asus p4xp-x MB, geforce2, 512 ram (3 loop memtest passed), 350w power supply with good reading in bios and normal cpu temp, was suffering from random lock ups, it used to happen once a day or once every 2 days, the lock ups were either no mouse move, keyboard not working, or...

kathy just opened the can and we jumped in
problems we had with monarch has nothing to do with kathys problem, regardless who opened such a subject, some people including myself wasnt satisfied at all with their order processing time and accurate inventory status + their order status page and...
you can try and call kingston and tell them about your story and ask for ram replacement, they may do it, you never know.
i recently bought my first and probably last purchasde from monarch and wasnt happy, took them 5 days to ship a hd and 7 days to ship the graphic card, while...

sorry guys, i forgot to add that there is another computer when hooked up to any of the 2 monitors there is no ghosting, the ghosting appears only when i hook the new computer to the monitor, also i am not moving the monitors, everything on its place.
i just built cad workstation for a friend (quadro 3400), the first crt monitor which i used to install windows and programs worked great, but when we moved the computer to another room and hooked it up to another crt monitor there was bad ghosting, then tried another crt monitor in the same room...

A friend asked to upgrade his office network (3 desktops and one laptop with 54mbps wi-fi capable).
As I know their hub is 10baseT only (dont know what the cable and NICs speeds are).
Considering the network needs new cabling, NICs and hub at the fastest possible speed, I came to the...
i am looking to get something to clean the dirt inside old computer cases.
i used to have before an electrical blower that turns the dirty case into brand new one and i dont remember it caused me any problems, now i am thinking to buy a new one and maybe battery powered one, so do you guys...
does that allow you to browse farther wireless connections other than your built-in broadcam 54g adaptor does?
i am asking because i am interesting to have longer range access to avaiable networks, since not everywhere i go there is avaiable wireless internet access.
a search on newegg...
i found out today that my 4 usb ports are not detecting any hardware. I dont know when that hapened, restart computer didnt solve the problem, so i had to uninstall the usb from device manager and restart so it detected the usb and then i could use my devices.
i am using xpsp2
how much time it takes while detecting the drives during post?
are you using one ide cable for both dvd drives? check jumper settings for both.
did you try to install any ide drvier?
does this happen with every dvd disk? and both drives causing the same freeze?
check your cpu temp in your bios also install mbm5 to check your power readings and post your readings, then move to the next step and install memtest and run it.
this is the basic start for system troublshooting.
are you looking for fun feeling and picking your items or lowest prices?
if the first one, then go to frys and comp usa.
if the second one, then before you arrive in few days, order what you need from newegg, or zipzoomfly or monrach....etc and gvie them the address where you will stay so...
i wish i know, will try it when i need it, the cost is not that big deal and (one bottle scotch :D ), thought it is big but it is the size of cigarette packet.
i think it is worth it compared to the price and some nice things we are hearing about, if it was usefull for one shitty time then...
just back from computergeeks, bought the soyo techaid @ $32.31 with the tax. those guys are great, big and very nice 3 floor building (seems they just moved) for their local and international shipments, had a look on their customer support ppl (around 50 each with headphone :D ), then went to...
was planing to pick up one from compusa, i forgot that newegg carrys it for $29 + tx and shipping, also just check compgeeks and there price is $27.95 + tax and shipping will be same as newegg. seems no one has it for $20
seems everybody recommend it, i am gonna order it...
have you tried this debug card and found it useful? or havve you heard good things about it? does it perform decent and precise job in pointing to the exact problem?
is it worth to pay around $50? or printing out the error codes for the bioses should be fair enough and take the place of the...
agree, get raptor wd74g, not the wd36g and keep the other drive you currently own for your bad habbits ;)
if you ordered the raptor now it will arrive with the cpu at the same time or maybe before the cpu.
how did you kill the cpu? and what did you tell them when they asked you what happened?
maybe they refused to rma it because you told them you were trying to overclock it and changed the fun, therefore they considered the warrantee is void since you tried to overclock it
