    Re: Making straight through RJ45 with solid

    FWIW, jacks = sockets. What you're referring to is modudular plugs ;)

    A sensible setup would be to terminate the fixed cables to a patch panel so that you have jacks (sockets) at either end and...

    Re: electric screwdriver

    I had a look into these a while back. The biggest issue IMO is that most small battery powered screwdrivers most often don't have variable speed and/or torque settings. I prefer variable speed on...

    Re: Networking ques. that are 'over my head'.

    Most techies differentiate Megabits and Megabytes through the use of capitalisation, but a lot of companies fail to follow the same protocol.
    "Mb"=Megabits. "MB"=Megabytes.

    Re: LiteOn DVD DL SATA burner stopped reading

    Make sure you're doing it under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet and not one of the other control sets.

    Re: SSD Question

    SSD's with TRIM support require the RAID controller to also have TRIM support in order to use it (as well as the OS having TRIM support), otherwise they will not use TRIM in RAID. That said, some...

    I didn't realise SIW had gone from freeware to paid software. The big advantage it had was a standalone version that didn't need to be installed. I knew AIDA64 and Everest had taken the paid...

    Re: Can't delete User Account???

    Just turn it off if it's turned on. If it's disabled, it's as good as not being there. It's built into Windows and some sharing features rely on Guest functionality. If you delete it, you can...

    Re: Need to break a vista password

    First and foremost, you need to know if it's a BIOS password or a Vista password. If it's a BIOS password, it'll be prompting even before Windows starts loading.

    If it's Vista, you can also use...

    Re: .NET Framework = which one ?

    The standalone distribution files contain earlier versions. Not sure about v4.0, but the v3.5 distribution file is ~240MB and installs 3.5, 3 and 2. You can more than halve the time installing the...

    His license may be an ASUS OEM version and may not validate with a vanilla MS OEM disc. All that means is that you might need to to use phone activation if online activation doesn't work.

    That's good logic... Why do you think it is that there are so many feral dogs and cats? There's a reason vets and other authorities recommend getting pets spayed.
