    2TB Drive Won't Hot Swap

    That isn't the problem, my computer never sleeps. I think is must be any issue with the drive itself. Since every other sata drive I have tried has worked.

    2TB Drive Won't Hot Swap

    Yes AHCI has been enabled since the windows install, there are two sata controllers on the motherboard so not all drives are on the same control but this shouldn't matter. I have already been able to hot-swap with the system, using the exact same sata port I am trying to use now, this is the...

    I just had a virus, screwed with proxy settings.

    So I was just using my computer normally as always and fake anti-virus windows starting popping up out of no where and all applications were being blocked from opening. I didn't have any anti-virus or malware software installed because I hadn't contracted a virus on any of my computers in many...

    The right thing to do would be to inform them of this and tell them they should set a master password.

    PC won't post: unplugged nearything and still nothing

    Do you have a friend with a compatible motherboard in his computer that you can start testing your stuff in to narrow down the problem? If you do try ram, video card, things like this in his computer. Eventually try processor and everything else. If it all works then it's probably the...

It kept disappearing after about 40 minutes of use, I tried doing a chkdsk but it couln't finish because the hard drive would disappear before it could finish.

    6 Gb vs. 4 Gb

    Put them in, they will all still be running in dual channel as long as you put them in the correct slots. 4 slots, two of them will be one color, and the other two will be a different color. If you put the 2 matching pairs on one color and the other two matching pairs on the other color then...

    Why must it be so difficult for the Xbox 360 to connect to vista via media center..

    I couldn't get WMP 11 to work with my PS3. I think it is because the upnp on my PS3 isn't recognized my D-Link DGL-4300 router. I use Tversity instead and it works out really well, it can even transcode formats that the PS3 doesn't support. It can only transcode in stereo, so unfortunately to...

    Looking to buy a decent LCD TV

    Unfortunately, you can't trust what they look like in BestBuy. They sometimes use different inputs or cables on different tv's. It is also rumored that they tune the color settings on some tv's to make them look better because they want to sell more of that one. There is also a lot of things...

    Weird filename bug

    So I have a lot of files and I have all the names organized. I set up Tversity to transcode video to my PS3 and it works great except for one thing. I'd say about 1 out of 15 files have the wrong filename, however, the filename displayed through Tversity on the PS3 is the original filename of...

    What to replace Asus P5B-E with?
