  1. Another solution is to disable DEP in the BCD-store of your USB-device. This can be done by following theses few steps : Boot a system into PE from your USB-stick (disable DEP in the bios if needed) from the PE command prompt type : - "bcdedit /store [your USB-stick driveletter]\boot\bcd" - this will give you the contents of the BCD-store on your USB-device - locate the entry "Window Boot Loader", there you'll find the value "identifier", wich - in my case - has the value {default}. (this could also be {Current} in your case.) - type "bcdedit.exe /store [your USB-stick driveletter]\boot\bcd /set {default} nx AlwaysOff" (replace {default} with {current} if needed.) - reboot your system and restore the BIOS-setting to it's original value. This disables the Windows PE DEP-functionality completely without messing around in the BIOS. This sollution will not only work on the HP DC7800, but also in other systems. greets, Peter

    Try googling for "mapisend.exe". This is a Microsoft Utility from the Exchange 2000 Resource Kit. Works for me !
  5. I've had the same problem with my system about one year ago.rig : a newly built Asus P4P800 Deluxe, Intel CPU P3.0Ghz, HT FB800Mhz, 2XCorsair 512 DDR. It turned out to be a bad CPU. I've replaced the CPU and it never auto-rebooted since. hopes this helps.
  6. Hi all, this is my first post here, so be gentle Here are some reg-values concerning this topic wich I haven't found yet in this GREAT forum. Remember : these settings take effect after a reboot. Windows Start Menu options are controlled by the following Registry locations : Windows 2000 and XP use the 9th binary value and Windows NT uses the 53 binary value as shown in the table below. Windows 2000 and XP HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2 Windows NT 4.0 HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects Windows 9x HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects SINGLE OPTIONS: 08 = No Settings Enabled 09 = Auto Hide 00 = Show Clock 0A = Always on Top 0C = Show small icons in Start Menu MULTIPLE OPTIONS: 01 = Auto Hide and Show Clock 02 = Always on Top and Show Clock 03 = Always on Top and Auto Hide and Show Clock 04 = Show small icons in Start Menu and Show Clock 0E = Always on Top and Show small icons in Start Menu 0F = Always on Top and Auto Hide and Show small icons in Start Menu 06 = Always on Top and Show small icons in Start Menu and Show Clock 07 = All Options Enabled 0B = Always on Top and Auto Hide 0D = Auto Hide and Show small icons in Start Menu Greets XPeter
