    Re: Updating Drivers Manually

    quick answer: you'll see your desktop after reboot (using Windows' default driver) but in a crappy lower resolution (like 640x480).

    Sounds like you're new to this so I'll state the rule where...

    Re: To Reformat, Or Not?

    I guess this one is long solved, but in the future, one option is to image the HDD and reformat anyway. If the owner is not satisfied and wants the old, slow setup back, just re-image.
  3. Re: Do secure messaging apps like Tigertext prevent the NSA PRISM from recording or l

    I know what you mean but what you actually wrote is that you are trying to hide something. I hope its not some kind of slip. :D

    Joking aside, we all have something to hide - whether we know it...
  4. Re: Nearing the end of my wits.....MB/CPU/RAM/PSU?

    I had a similar issue after a storm. The phone line carried a charge that damaged the PCI modem and the system refused to boot. Everything was fine once I removed the modem.

    Re: PC and Windows 7 maintenance question

    It depends. If the machine takes a beating (heavy use, lots of installs/uninstalls and testing of stuff) a periodic refresh will keep things (like the registry) in top shape. The best approach is a...

    Re: NEED HELP! New system build is crashing!

    Check for bent/broken leads inside the USB ports.
    Also, did you try running everything outside the case as advised above? Sounds like a shorting issue. If not that, then faulty drivers; perform a...
  8. Re: Anyone ever hook up a TP-Link W8960N ver.3 to Verizon DSL ?

    For future ref, the DSL/ADSL LED signifies a digital signal in the line and the issue may have been the line (DSL filters on the modem? bad RJ-11 phone cable?) or, more likely, device itself (since...
  9. Re: Razer Mamba software removal results in system unable to boot into Windows!

    No idea what changes it made to the registry but these experiences fuel my dislike for Razer products (and the fact that they want you to create online accounts for drivers, etc.). I have no sure...

    Re: Failed to boot

    Just delete the restoration data at the menu (use the up/down arrows on the keyboard to select, then hit enter) and allow XP to do a fresh boot. This is simple; the PC is having problems restoring...
  11. Re: Alternatives to the Standard Mouse for Carpal Tunnel?

    This model looks a bit interesting but I'll wait for the reviews. Personally, I've found trackballs the better solution in everyday situations. I once mounted a Logitech (Trackman?) in a similar...

    Yes, that 'persistent illusion,' as Einstein once called it. Totally understandable.

    It is best we not engage in circular reasoning, friend. Going down that road would be unproductive, although...

    Re: Windows 7 update/.NET Framework install hangs

    How do you know that MSI components are missing? Win 7 (and Server 12/08 R2) ships with 5.0 of the installer and there is no redistributable for it.

    Try running the components without the OC and calculate the difference at the wall. The least expensive way is probably a Kill A Watt; about $20. Also, check the specs (or labels) for the HDD,...
