I have just purchased the Harmony 880 and i am very satisfied with it. I would highly recommend it.
it controls things i never though it could, the list is endless. If you google harmony 880 refurbished, the amazon site should come up with a price tag of 99$ with a warranty. You can't beat that.
Actually it's my server streaming all my movies, music, and fun stuff aound the house. I've had a few pc's since then but this is the only one that has NEVER given me any trouble. Until now that is.
I'll give it a replacement battery Thanks Kevdog and i'll take it from there.
I have my beloved Aopen Ax6bc that has been running strong for the past 8 years.
I have a Pentium III 667MHZ processor (actually 500 overclocked to 667).
I had to restart it yesterday and I noticed during the POST my processor was running at 333E MHZ. Basically half of what it was (It was...
What's the best way to troubleshoot the motherboard/cpu without actually getting another cpu to test it on my mobo?
I'm also gonna try to reinstall Windows, i doubt it'll do anything, but maybe a file is corrupted and causing higher then normal cpu usage for almost everything i do :P
I've tried a few things and still no go. I'm going to look into replacing the Chip. A few questions for you:
1. How can i determine if the problem is the chip or the mobo?
2. What chip would you recommend for this mobo? (955x chipset)
Reasonnably priced one, i'm not too hardcore on the pc.
I cleaned off the thermal paste and added some compound paste, a little dab in the center and i applied the HSF on top. The HSF is not the best, in fact it's the cheapest i found at my local computer store for a band-aid fix...
Thanks Mike I'll check that. As far as the spyware goes though, i know it's clean because i jsut reinstalled windows with a new Hard drive - A whole other problem there, I kept getting Disk Write errors and went mad running tests. Anyway i later found out my side fan was slowing pushing the sata...
I got a ltitle problem with heat on my setup I got:
Intel Pentium 4 630 3GHz Socket 775 (I believe that is tha LGA J)
This thing was idling at 49 degrees, although i thought it was excessive Intel told me it's fine, and it was quite stable until recently...
Rock on, thanks bud.
I like the Intel Drivers, it doesn't have basic "Enable, Disable" features. It's got features like:
Jumbo Frames: Disabled, 9014 Bytes, 4088 bytes, 16128 bytes.
unfortunately, I don't believe the Dlink drivers have that kind of options so i'll have to conform with...
Thanks for all the responses.
I'll run all the tests on the server when i get home tonight.
As far as it goes, the P3 is running a PCI 32bit Dlink gigabit card (i'll get the model when i go home), and i have the option to enable "jumbo frames" - (i've read some of the downsides to jumbo...
Ha, who would of known a short cable might do it? my cable is about 6inches long because hte pc's are right next to each other.
I appreciate everyones input. I'm leaving work now, i'll go make a "straight" 4 foot cable and see what results iperf gives me.
In the meantime, i e.mailed a few...
on a default 8K window size i got speeds of 220Mbit
I ran the calculations in the document and mine should be at 122K.
i did a -w 122K and it peaked at 336Mbit. if i higher my window size speed decreases.
I am going to try a different cable. Anyone know a gooe website...
I downloaded the software and i have no idea what switches to activate and whether or not I need to run this on both pc's (one as client and other as server?)
Can you give me a basic switch to test the bandidth on the network?
iperf somethingsomething 169.254.0.1...
Actually I have not tried it with the network card unplugged or disabled. it's worth a shot.
I was also wondering about the write speed of the hard driveo n my P3, but from my understanding, the IDE drive can write at speeds of 40MBPS, therefore my speed should go at least 320MbPS.
I have been having a little bit of a problem with my gigabit connection, basically i don't get that speed when i transfer files over the network..
I have 2 pc's next to each other connected with a crossover cable.
Each PC has 2 network cards, one going to my router with a 192 ip...
