  1. ya, u can use it , just no updates

    and as far as i know, there isnt a way 2 keep track of the 30day mark other then the calendar :rolleyes:

    nod is great tho :) updates daily, uses little resources & has resident protection


    Hey guys

    I was checking NOD32 out. Is it better then AVG? That's what I use.


  2. Because he has a 3 year service contract he should call Dell and get a new modem because I'll bet it's a bad modem.

    I was afraid of that. They've had bad luck lately w/ their computers. Just wanted to exhaust all avenues before I tell him the bad news. He'll have to start to use Dells Onsite Support, that goes w/ the contract.

  3. Hello All

    I have a modem in a new dell. It's not able to dial out. I really CAN'T open the system and move the modem around, it's in a 3 year contract. I don't want to void the warranty by opening it up. He is trying to use AOL. I used hyper term and got the same results. The phone line works and I'm able to dial out number from the handset. Also, I'm sure that I have the right phone jacks in the right terminals. There's no voice mail or call waiting preventing it to dial either. The drivers are current for that modem. What else can I do to try to correct this problem. I always hated modem thank GOD they are a dying breed! I'm gonna miss the screeching noise though.


  4. sounds fast i need to look up my speed im using road runner with time warner  cable, any one know the speed to that off the top of their head lol, well if not ill look it up :)

    3000 / 384 last time I checked. But they are beta testings 6000 / 762 ? something like that in NYC.

  5. Also is it easy for users to proxy to other accounts as in Novell's GroupWise or does anyone know the equiivellant in Exchange ?

    Also what backup software do people use ?  Is the iinbuilt one any good or should I purchase a 3rd party one ?

    I've studied exchange 2k. But it's been awhile since I cracked open my mcse books on it. Right now they have 1 inch of dust on them...:) As far as I remember there is support for Groupwise.

  6. Hello All!

    I've been using trillian for a long time. I have verion 2.02 and this morning my Yahoo didn't want to connection for nothing in the world. So I fired up the stand alone Yahoo client & it worked fine. I'm assuming that Yahoo changed the protocol used for their chat client. p***ed me off.

    Does anyone else have a better client? If so let me know. I need something that has all of the client into one program.


  7. Kinda irritated here.  I work as a tech, and I still haven't succesfully installed XP onto my Raptor. I guess it's a matter

    Don't feel bad...:) It happens to all of us, we possibliy CAN'T KNOW EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME. That's one of the downside to our industry. Always changing. To be honest w/ you. I never personally install a SATA drive yet. I can't wait to get my hands on one and go through the experience. At work recently I help build a server that had 8 SATA drive in it, but it as all Red hat corp install, not xp. I put the hardware together that's all.

  8. 3. You mean I'm better off with just two drives or 2 volumes on my new drive?

    4. I've tried this, because my dvdrom and dvdr are using D and E the settings for the new drive only allow F onwards

    5. Is your avatar a Klingon Insignia?

    That's what I'd suggest unless someone has a better suggestion.

    As for my avatar. You're close it's the Obsidian Order & Cardassian 2nd Order Insignia. I was planning on putting up there Gul Dukat. Thanks for noticing...:)

  9. 3. Am I better off having lots of volumes or just one?

    4. How can I get this drive letter to "D" and my dvdrom and dvdr to "E" and "F" ?

    Well I used to use dynamic for one reason. I used to combine my drives into on DRIVE D. So, I only have 3 drive letters worry about. But a lil problem cropped up. If I had to reinstall it would break the spanned volume. You can't get back in. When windows came back up it would report missing volume. So for now I left everything to basic cause of that reason. If anyone know how to correct my issue please let me know.


  10. i plugged on my computer. It works...but only for up and left!!

    When i move to right or down, windows shows "Your game controller is not connected correctly. Please verify..."

    Only thing I can think of. Does the joystick have to be calibrated? Did it come w/ a driver CD and if so are you using it?

  11. Those are very nice PC specs.  I wish I could have a computer like that.  :rolleyes:

    How many PCs do you need to replace, how much does 1 PC like that cost, will you build or buy, and what function will each one serve (e.g. workstation, server, media PC, etc)? :)

    Well, my other post didn't make it. I thought it posted...:D I guess not. Anyways. My oldest son has a p3 550. I want to replace it. Then I want to upgrade mine and give it to him. Then build me a new one. I have 1 Dell PowerEdge 1350/500 Server it's old and slow. It was great in it's day but not now. The server I was thinking of getting an opteron or a 64 chip. But those chips cost and arm & a leg. But the prices will come down.

  12. Those are very nice PC specs.  I wish I could have a computer like that.  :)

    That's what I'd like. Doesn't mean that I'll be able to get all.

    Actually 1 PC needs replacing BAD. It's an old p3 550, and serves as a workstation. Also there is a Power Edge 1350/500 Server. Which is old and slow. It was ONCE a nice server for it's day. My PC has a7n8x w/ 2500 & 768mb of ram. My pc it'll probably be passed down to my oldest son. He's into his GBA roms and games. I'll get him a kick a** graphics card for him. I'll just build me the ones w/ the above specs. My wife wants a machine too, for what she only checks email...:rolleyes: Then there is my daughter. It would be nice to get one of those Hello Kitty cases for her. So, that all of my house in a nutshell. Hope you guys enjoy it.

    Oh Yeah. I luv my Dell Ultra Sharp 19" Flat Panel!!!!

  13. oh forgive me..

    Nah You're straight. My eyesite is not @ it's best. As long as it's 1024x768x32bit color & 30fps, Oh, and no flickering.I'm happy. Right now in this system that I'm on it's only got a ATI Radeon 7000 card in it w/ a Dell Ultra Sharp 1901FP

  15. Thank you rlocone and neosapience. I was looking for a more detailed file list, from ntldr until the autorun section in registry finds place, but anyway I know now more about the boot process.

    All hardware stuff is keep HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. If your looking for reg keys there are tons of them in there. If I'm wrong let me know.

  16. Raleigh, NC

    Bellsouth FastAccess DSL XTreme

    they have 3 spees Lite .750, Ultra 1.5 and Xtreme 3.0

    This was released not long after our local cable company

    boosted their service to 2Mbps

    Don't you guys have Time Warner over there? I had a really bad connection in Wilmington. Sucked big time. But, the one in NYC ROCK SOLID!

  17. Im not too sure i understand your question....

    I understand that you want to biuld a shelf for some cable componets and that your cable sinal is waek, however i dont know how they are related

    A rephrase or more info might be helpful

    Well building these shelfs would provide 2 purposes. 1. organize the devices and 2. hopefully help the devices work better.
