    Athalon XP on A7V?

    My Asus A7V is the first revision. I tried a Duron 1.3 on it and it wouldn't work. My BIOS was only 1007 though. Can you tell me the revision on your board? Thanks man. I really want to buy a new chip this weekend.

    Windowsupdate being strange

    Did you purchase the whole article?
  3. Hi, I was askes this question on an exam, and I was wondering if the smart people here could give it a try and answer them: 1. A computer on a network is not obtaining an IP address from the DHCP server. There is no problem with the networking from the backbone to the gateway of the subnet that it's currently on, and all other PC's on that subnet are getting IP's. Assume that the PC hardware is fine and that it is running Windows XP Professional. What could be some causes of this?

    It really depends on your board revision. Check out this link: http://a7vtroubleshooting.com/info/cpu/index.htm

  6. I was wondering, is there a HUGE performance gain with WD's 8MB cache version of it's 7200rpm drives versus it's 2MB cache drives? Thanks.
  7. Database as in this bulletin board?
  8. I was wondering, if I had a dual-processor system, or perhaps even an n-processor system (where n => 2), wouldn't a process be completed faster (i.e. response time decreased) on that n-processor system when compared to the same process on a single-processor system? I mean, is it possible for the process to be split up and worked on by the n-processors? I am writing this because I had an argument with a proff. about this last week, thanks!
  9. Has anyone successfully installed this update? Q324929: December 2002, Cumulative Patch for Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 Download size: 2.0 MB, < 1 minute Each time I've installed it, I am asked to reboot, so I do, but then after I reboot and I run WindowsUpdate again, Update doesn't recognize that I've already installed that patch!

    IE Patch doesn't work.

    What's a "rollup's kb article"? I just tried installing MBSA. It detected that the updates that were installing but not being recognized as "errors" and then instructed me to install them. MS products like to make me go in circles, sigh. I think during my spring break, I'll just do a clean-format of my OS.

  12. In the product description of Norton System Works 2003, one of its key features is that it helps dial-up users keep that internet connection. Right now, my SO is using dial-up because she only uses it to check e-mail and to do research. I was wondering, does this feature of NSW2003 actually work and should I install it on her computer? Thanks. P.S. How does a software program actually help keep a dial-up connection alive?

    Norton System Works 2003

    Nice, thanks for your opinion! I also heard that it consumes a lot of CPU power, so I don't think I will be installing it any time soon.
  14. Hi, I often make personal audio cd mixes for my car, and I was wondering, which burning software do you guys use most and why? I am currently using Nero and sometimes EasyCD Creator 5. What's the best way to make the best sounding cds? Is it to uncompress them first into a wave file?

    Kazaa Lite?

    Do any of you guys use Kazaa Lite? I notice there's been a HUGE slowdown in server performance, what's going on? The bandwidth on most of my searches are REALLY slow, like around 40s, where I used to get 500's and 900's. OUCH!
  16. For a course at school, the textbook is online in PDF format but the ability to print the pdf files has been turned off. Is there any way I could apply a patch or something to make the PDF file printable? Thanks.

    Tried that already. The same problem occurs.

    Stupid IE problem

    OK, I just fixed my problem by clearing all my cookies. Now another problem remains. Has anyone successfully installed this update?

    Stupid IE problem

    I am having some trouble. When I lot out of my hotmail account, I keep on getting this pop-up window: It doesn't happen when I use Mozilla or Netscape. How come?! Am I being hacked?

    Non-printable pdf files

    You know, the funny thing is that this text is for a ethics course I'm taking. Anyhow, whether I can or cannot hack into the pdf file to print it is not that big of a deal. I am just wondering for curiosity reasons. Also, I don't see why they don't want us to print it if they put the entire text online. To save trees?
  21. Check your board revision. And then go by this guide: http://a7vtroubleshooting.com/info/cpu/index.htm
  22. I would like to receive files over ICQ but I also like to use WindowsXP firewall on. But I noticed that in order for me to receive files over ICQ, I have to turn off the firewall, and I find it a pain-in-the-ass to always have to manuall turn off the firewall. When I goto the "Advanced Settings" of XP's firewall, I can select the following services: FTP Server IMAP3 IMAP4 SMTP POP3 Remote Desktop HTTPS Telnet Server HTTP Which service do I have to select so that I can receive files over ICQ AND keep XP's firewall on? Thanks.
  23. OK, if I have mp3s ripped at 128kbps, and I uncompress it to wave files, and then compress them back to mp3's but at 192kbps, would that actually give me better sound quality?

    Digital Camera

    First off, I apologize if this thread does not belong here. Anyways, I am looking to buy a digital camera for my SO and since there are so many to choose from, I don't know which one to buy. I am looking to spend $500 CAN so that's about $320 US. Any good ideas? Thanks.
  25. I have a 64MB Geforce2 Mx400, and my friend told me to change the aperture size on my mobo (it's an Asus A7V) to 256MB. Will this accomplish anything good for my mobo? Thanks.
