  1. After sleep, computer cannot wakeup

    I have updated the post to include the hardware list. It seems the attachment does not support txt file. Basically, I have a 128SSD and 1TB harddisk, both are connected to the native SATA port on the motherboard. The GIGABYTE SATA2 ports are not used. I will try switching that off during the weekend, and update the result.
  2. After sleep, computer cannot wakeup

    Hi, I upgrade my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 8. The sleep becomes broken, which has been working perfectly in Win7. By broken, I mean when I make the computer into sleep, it sleeps fine. But when I wake it up, there is no reaction from either keyboard, mouse, or the power button. So I have to hold the power button for a few seconds to turn the computer off, and then restart it. Most of those restarts, I will get the following error. Then I have to go through the win8 trouble shooting to make the computer work again. My motherboard is Gigabyte H55m-usb3, BIOS version is F11. Graphic card is Onda nVidia GTX460. Attachment is a more detailed hardware list. Does anybody have similar problems? Any solutions? Thanks in advance. Detailed hardware list
  3. problems with HP nx6330 notebook SD reader

    HP says it is the problem of drivers. But I have tried almost all versions, none works.
  4. I just bought a new HP laptop. It has a built-in SD reader. Every time I put in an SD card, the drive can be found. But when I try to open the drive, OS always says that the SD card is not formatted. I follow that and format the card. But some error messages about I/O errors are shown, and formatting cannot be finished. I have installed the lastest driver version from HP official site. The problem remains. I also tried the old version, still the same problem. I am sure the problem is not cards. I have 3 cards, all of them have the same problem as above. When I try them on USB card reader, everything is OK. All of them work in my digital camera, too. Two cards are 128MB from Panasonic, and one is 256MB from Lexar. So the problem should not be because of the size. Could any1 provide some information about this error? I use windows XP. Many Thanks
  5. I think maybe gluLookAt() could be one of the reasons that affects the speed. Because if it is in the display function, then the camera will be set every time the display is refreshed. If it is in the init function, then just set the camera by once. Right??
  6. What Anti-Virus do you Use/Recommend?

    well, with Firefox, u almost never need the anti virus!
  7. I don't know whether this is the correct section to put this. if not, sorry. I m new to OpenGL. sooooo, many stupid questions. Below is my program to draw a rotating cube, I very confused why I cannot move gluLookAt() from the display function to the initialize function! Also, it seems the program is affected significantly by the size of the displaying window. Is that caused by the place of gluLookAt? If it is in the display function, does that mean every time the cube is refreshed, the camera is repositioned? Thanks in advance!

  8. Compaq nightmare

    U can download an image of XP, and then use ur own key. Dont worry, this would not violate the lisence. just make sure, you download the correct version. I mean Home or Pro.
