  1. I just got done building her a computer , and the bios is reporting the cpu at 56 celcius , is this the normal for a P4 , Mine runs at 36 , but i have alot more fans Is it safe at this temp , Idle at the bios screen , I also realize the Artic silver hasnt had a chance to set Rob
  2. I am building my little sister a computer right now , I am using some old parts from her 500mhz celeron Here is the question , I am using a 60 gig maxtor , and i dont know how old it is , and after i install XP and all the programs she needs , i am going to do a backup with Arconis Basically Arconis is like Norton Ghost , but where Ghost allows you to burn the image onto a dvd , Arconis allows you to make a hidden partition to restore from if anything goes wrong If she decides to upgrade to a new HD later on , Arconis does look like it will allow me to restore to a different drive Will i have any problems if i do so ???? I just dont wanna do 2 installs of EVERYTHING XP Pro Norton AV 2005 Spysweeper MS Office 2003 Adobe Photoshop CS Nero DVD Shrink DVD Decrypter Alcohol 120% Trillian Vopt Defrag Win Rar Arconis and so on Thanks Rob

Yes i work as a Computer Tech , at a major retail chain We do Virus and Spyware Removals , and i get this error thrown at me durring McAffee and AVG command line scanners We dont/cant install the programs on the customers computers , too much hastle and most ask for activation Right now we use the free trend micro scanner , but this error confuses me Rob

  6. Trying to run a command prompt virus scan with AntiVir , and i keep getting this message , does anyone know of a way to get around this , i tried messing with the compatibility tab and still nothing right now googling trying to find an answer Any help is appriciated Edit: An Application has attempted to directly access the hard disk , which cannot be supported .....blah blah blah WTF ?
  7. Very Very Close to what i need , I just need it to leave a the original file alone my folder should look like this --------------------------- MasterTracker.xls <--- Main June6th.xls June7th.xls June8th.xls . . . . i dont care about the date format , I plan on executing this batch file every morning at 7am (Windows Scheduler) , to make a new file for that day , and open it
  8. I am looking for a way to rename a file with the current date Basically... Take MasterTracker.xls and make a copy , and rename it to June 6th.xls and have this batch file execute each night and move the old date to an archive folder and recreate the file for that day Is it possible ?? Rob
  9. Ok Nevermind, I just unplugged the KVM Switch from my one computer , and then plugged it in again , now it works **** Windows Rob
  10. I have 2 computers and I have a USB KVM Switch that allows me to use 1 keyboard , Mouse and Monitor for both THe KVM Switch was sitting very close to my Logitech Subwoofer (Under my Desk ) , And Today now , the one usb port doesnt work I can only get the Mouse to or Keyboard to work , 1 at a time , I cant figure it out Its like the 1 usb port just died So was it a bad KVM or Did my Subwoofer destroy it ??
  11. LMAO... The Neo Power 480 is what i have in my computer , No way does she need that much power , and i am running 3 dvd burners and 4 harddrives Rob
  12. ah not so much crappy parts.... The motherboard is nice The processor is nice she will get 512 of Crucial DDR2 A PCI Videocard , since she doesnt do videogames The 60 gig harddrive out of the HP , again she doesnt need alot Integrated HD sound 5.1 Logitech Speakers DVD or CD burner , probably a NEC or Liteon Integrated NIC Standard Floppy and a Standard Case, Maybe something with a window ? I just dont wanna go OVERKILL , since she is just doing Internet and burning music, Now me on the otherhand , I have 7 harddrives ....over a Terabyte of Info...lol
  13. Building my lil sister a computer , I have built arould 5 other computers, but most were for me and i went with the top of the line Currently she uses a Celeron 500mhz HP with 384 ram and a 60 gig harddrive I am building her a 3.4 Pentium 4 HT socket 775 , with 512 ddr2 she most likely will never have more then 1 harddrive and 1 DVD-RW in the system , and her Videocard will most likely be a PCI card , not express What can i get away with in terms of Powersupplys for her ? Here is her Motherboard (INTEL BOXD915PBLL Socket T (LGA 775)) Here is her Processor (intel Pentium 4 550 800MHz FSB LGA 775 ) I got them both Brand new for $100 Also do you recommend going with a Case that has a powersupply bundled with it , Or buy the case and powersupply seperate ?? I just dont know how a unknown brand of powersupply will hold up , I always use antec 480+
