Sound is really bad. You hear everyone whether being right near you or upstairs or in the next room, all with the same volume. So, it could be very distracting. Specially for a stealth game.
I bought it the last time it went on sale. Now, I know why the price dropped so soon after release.
My post was meant to inform anyone who cared to know about the camera being off center.
I have no intention of staring a fight over the internet.
So, I will not reply to your comments and hope that you will not pursue it.
Bought Alan Wake last time it was on sale and am sorry I wasted money.
I wish I knew about the problem before I bought it. I am posting so that others know.
The camera is off center. I am not saying everyone is going to have a problem with this. Just be aware. If you like it, by all means...
I played the original Far Cry game when it came out and I fell in love with it! That is one game that I have played so many times.
So, when Far Cry 2 came out, a few years ago, I bought it right away. I was very disappointed to find out that it had nothing to do with the original game...
When a manufacturer builds a set of laptops, they install the OS and all the software and demos on a single machine and test and activate first. Then, they re-image that on all the laptops with identical hardware. The only difference between the machines (that the OS cares about) is the MAC ID...
Unfortunately, it does not work that way.
I once received an item which was not what was advertised.
I told the retailer and they asked me to ship it back for a refund and refused to pay for shipping.
I contacted my credit card company and asked the charge to be reversed.
Credit card company...
I did not expect such a cheap act (resetting the counter) by Acronis.
I hope that they explain this.
I hate to think they just claimed this promotion in order to harvest email addresses without really meaning to respect it.
Open the disk manager and check to see if the partition on SSD is primary. If it is not, you are in trouble.:)
Hopefully it is.
If it is, set it as active.
Place the Windows 7 DVD in and Power down. Disconnect all the drives except SSD.
Power up and boot to the DVD. Perform a...
The Windows 7 installer inspects the hard drive that has boot priority (in the BIOS). If an active partition exists on that hard drive, it uses that partition as its system partition. This could be an existing XP or other OS or an empty active partition.
This could also be on a secondary hard...
Enter the BIOS and make sure the hard drive that has C on it has boot priority.
Now, it does not matter if the other hard drive has an active partition. It will never get control as long as the hard drive it is on does not have boot priority.
If it bothers you, you can use GParted as...
You need to make C active first. You can use GParted live CD to do that.
Then, disconnect the other drives, make W7 drive boot drive in BIOS if it is not already, and try the repair with the install DVD again.
What you are asking for may not be the most efficient solution!
When they need you to fix the computer again in a year or two, you will have to backup all the data they have acumulated on the 250GB drive (emails, movies, pictures, ...) before you restore your image. Otherwise, all the new...
Check to see if the C partition is primary. You can use Gparted live cd to boot to and check the partition.
If it is primary, you can fix it by running the Windows 7 repair option. You may need to run it twice.
If the partition is not primary, rather, it is a logical partition inside an...
Use the Task Scheduler and you will not need to disable UAC.
First, remove the program from startups so that it does not automatically start anymore.
Start task scheduler by going to Start/All programs/Accessories/System Tools/Task Scheduler.
Click on "Create Task".
On the "General tab"...
If it really bothers you, create a partition and make it active before you install Windows 7 into it next time. Then, Windows 7 will not create the hidden 100MB partition.
Of course the partition must be on the hard drive that has boot priority.
The only thing on C is the OS. C is the first partition on my fast drive.
I install all applications on D. D is the rest of my fast hard drive.
My documents, My Music, and all those personal folders are on D.
System restore is disabled (since I have an image of my OS).
Pagefile is on a...
Keep in mind the cleaner way to multi boot is to put each OS on a dedicated hard drive. Then, you can keep them completely isolated.
Otherwise, if you dual-boot XP and Windows 7 the conventional way, and some day wipe out XP, you will have to reapir your W7 before you can boot to it again.
Am I unique to liking a small C partition?
Not at all.
My Windows 7 64-bit partition is 30GB. It only has 9.5GB of used space on it.
The partition image is only 5GB and can be restored in less than 3 minutes.
All data and application settings remain intact when I do a fresh install, or...
That is irrelevant!
How much used space do you have on it?
You cannot do that if everything is on a single partition. At least, not that easily.
Create a smaller first partition on the second drive. Make a fresh install of XP on it. Attach the old drive as a storage drive. Create a second...
If your drive only has one partition on it and you can boot to it with no other hard drive attached, it is primary and it is active. So, nothing to worry about.
If there is another active partition on the destination drive you are restoring to, True Image asks you if you want to make the...
I just booted to True Image Home 2009 to check this out. These are the steps:
- Click on Backup.
- Click on My Computer
- Select your XP partition only. It must show Pri,Act in the "Flags" column. If it does not, it means your system partition is somewhere else, and there will be additional...
What is the motherboard brand and model?
Check "Power Options" on the control panel.
"Change plan settings"
"Change advanced power settings"
Expand "Multimedia settings".
Expand "When sharing media".
Does it say "Prevent idling to sleep"?
Change it to "Allow the computer to sleep" and see if...
The system files do not allow you to shrink. You need to move them first.
