It has been a while since I've been back here pleading for help and this time I need some help from network guru's!
I currently purchased a Netgear N300 router & Linksys WMP600N wireless network card for my desktop.
Currently have a WPA2-PSK [AES] security set up.
I have been slacking on the new technology side of things for a while, have not read up on the SSD hard drives.
My old Raptor hard drive crapped out on me yesterday so I think I'm just going to upgrade everything.
I've picked out a Sata 6Gb/s compatible motherboard so far
It's been about 5-6 years since I've had to build a computer and I'm a bit rusty...havent kept up with all the changes.
Currently purchasing a ASUS M4A77D
My question is it says it needs a 24 pin PSU. I don't see...
All my data is backed up.
Ran check disk, the program that windows offers to check your disks; both passed.
Ran the Western Digital diagnostic program for the hard drive; passed that as well.
Is it just coincidence that they're making more noise then usual and are not the problem here?
For the past couple months I've noticed my hard drives, both, have become fairly noisy. Programs, games especially, don't seem to run as ****, and choppier. And the most annoying is my windows boot time is up near 3-4 minutes. Never was like this. These hard drives are about 2-3 years old maybe...
I havent done this in a while and networking isnt my thing...friend has a router/network hooked up, wants to hook up wireless internet on the laptop, but needs the WEP key, can this be found in the router settings?
Yeah no kidding, I searched through alot of online sites and shops, no luck. I cant run any games on it, but with the 1 gig of ram I put on it, it's become a handy tool I can carry around.
I had figured as much, just need to confirm it but you cant complain over a free laptop ;) , thanks everyone.
Depends on what you mean by challenging...
PVP wise or just straight out leveling/item/quest wise.
Best PvP MMORPG, balanced - where level didnt matter as much in most cases, would be Asheron's Call 1. Although attended macroing is aloud, leveling can be pretty easy. Items and what not are up...
I was given a Toshiba Satellite 1905 S301 (I believe) a while back, was in bad shape, I fixed it up, put XP on it, and added a gig of ram.
The graphics card is 16mb, and not good at all, and I know almost nothing about laptops. Is there a place I can find or buy laptop video cards? Are their...
Any chance you can give me some sort of measurements on the height and legnth on this thing?
Heard alot of people saying it's really big...and I have a metal/glass desk so modding isnt much of a option.
Never actually had any kind of Zippy or used anything other then Logitech...My Mx3000 set worked great but I guess they had alot of problems with them dieing slowly, which mine is doing. That and it's eating my double A batterys.
I was also maybe looking at the Claw II or one of those many...
Had a Logitech 3100 I believe, which has been great for me for the past year or so until the now when the keyboard has been acting up. Seems like alot of people have had this same problem.
Was thinking about getting:
Yeah sounds like the motherboard has blown...
I've had problems where a power supply would blow and motherboard would mess up as well..
I dont think the light on the motherboard can always reassure whether the board is working or not, had a few few blown out ones that the light still stays on...
Not sure, I ussually keep this system up and running for long periods of times, minus a reboot every day or so.
I just moved 3,000 miles and it was in the back of a trailer so I worried if something did get damaged some how.
About 2 weeks ago I was having some issue's with my 2nd rig, it would blue screen about every 2 hours or so, I'd reboot then it would reconize my hard drive, I'd wait 5-10 minutes, reboot and it would reconize it. I cant open up my C drive fine, it's only partioned into 1 piece.
Got some advice from a different forum, sounded like a bad partion. But in the end not sure exactly what I did but I fat a 38 gig partion then quick ntfs format and some how got it to install.
Hopefully I dont get some kind of errors saying I suck at life later down the line with the hd ;)
Yes and it did give me some kind of NTFS error but I didnt get a chance to look at it.
For additional troubleshooting suggestions that apply to all Stop errors, see "Stop Message Checklist" later in this appendix.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
The problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sys
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart...
I had the firewalls disabled, and it looked like "Not Offloadable" was already selected. Still having this issue.
I thought maybe it was the ram, switched the voltage to 2.6, no go.
Still trying to find the issue.
If you mean my ethernet drivers... I get the problem even if I dont have internet hooked up and try moving a file from my portable HD from 1 computer to the next, I try and open and gives me various corrupt file errors.
Still looking for a solution! :(
Try doing a search on microsoft site for a new download of Runtime. *shrug* I can't garentee anything but it might help :)
Good luck though
oh and by the way, this thread has lots of people who had similar problem.
^^ not sure what the above poster meant...Maybe I'm just tired from work but...
Ran Memtest, everything came out 100% clean. Ran Prime95 for 21 hours-solid 0% errors.
Sounds like the motherboard...maybe the drivers? Not sure... =/
The search continues
My co-worker had this same problem...I googled it came across many way to *try* and fix it. First off go to Start-Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs and look for something called "Common name", if you find it, delete it.
If not then try download another visual basic runtime. I can probably find...
I disabled Nvidia Firewall and Windows Firewall. Still didnt work...I installed windows with a different disk, it worked fine, I got all my stuff downloaded til now...tried again with winrar and still got corrupted file errors. Weird, 1 minute it worked, the other it didnt. It has to be...
Tried WinRar on my Nvidia Driver:

Am I having a bad day and finding 6+ corrupted file downloads for random programs? Or is there something wrong...I have nothing to the computer except download...

No I havent messed with any settings. Friend had exact same problem with same game with same router.
The game is Asheron's call.
Many months ago I tried to port forward and trigger to get on, was successful for 1 server on 1 account, other then that everything else was blocked.
I know very...
