  2. yus, have latest drivers any tips on how to get more performance from my card? Was thinking of maybe sticking an Arctic Cooler on it
  3. I've not upgraded my PC since I built it this time 2 years ago, so it's currently getting an overhaul I'm running a Sapphire Radeon 9800XT on an ASUS K8V SE Deluxe board at the moment. Are there any AGP cards on the market that are much better than the 9800 XT? Or is the 9800XT stilll a decent agp card? (Not really looked into graphics cards much over the last couple of years as mine's been adequate enough)
  4. Ok, some more I've found mstask.dll (Scheduled Tasks icons) wiashext.dll (Scanners & Cameras icons) audiodev.dll (Portable Media Devices icons)
  5. Thanks for the advice guys I already moved all the data I needed to my C: and formatted the drive though As for the multicoloured writing.... it's just the compression i used on the jpeg is all Thanks Lee
  6. Hi, I created a partition on my Western Digital external hard drive a while ago using Acronis Partition Expert. I've just deleted this partition and increased the free space back to the original 150GB of the drive. I now have this information when I select Properties for the drive.... I just deleted 80GB of files from the drive and it's now telling me I have 221GB of free space when the drive is only 150GB!!! Anybody shed some light on how to resolve this? Short of reformatting the drive Cheers Lee
  7. Hello, does anybody know which .dll or .exe contains this icon.... It's one of the last ones I need to replace with Vista-rized icons But can't find it anywhere! Thanks Lee
  8. I downloaded a pack of 200+ new vista PNGs, converted them to quality icons, then res hacked my shell32.dll I would post it, only problem is... it's ballooned to 29MB
  9. I've been using this for years now... http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml very handy
  10. I think everyone is complicating this topic with talk of nlite etc. May I ask... did you re-install drivers after you installed Windows? Sounds to me like you just haven't installed the drivers for your graphics card and sound card Easiest thing if you're not very computer savvie... if you have a CD's for them, stick them in your computer and run the setup programs Hope this helps
  11. If you manually replace your icons with res hacker or similar, here are a few .dll's you can find most common icons in... shell32.dll (Most icons in here) explorer.exe (My Computer, ZIP Files etc.) shdoclc.dll (IE Icon) xpsp2res.dll (Wireless Networking, Service Pack 2 Shields, Bluetooth etc.) mydocs.dll (My Documents, My Pictures) netshell.dll (Various network icons) shimgvw.dll (various image file icons) all .cpl (control panel) files anyone else wish to add?
  12. I integrated an add-on pack (from RyanVM's site) into my nLite unattended Windows install for Media Player 10... but this version doesn't seem to have the "Now Playing" plug-in for MSN Is there anywhere I can download this MSN plug-in? Already google'd a few search terms with no luck Thanks, Lee
  13. Now fixed... I think it was down to my Driver.cab being corrupted. Replaced it with the Driver.cab from my other copy of XP for my other machine and all is well This seems to have fixed the "Setup cannot copy the file..." problem I had at the beginning of setup too.
  14. Could this be the problem? http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283079 I've made many unattended CD's that and this is the only time I've had this error though
  15. Is Framework 2.0 supposed to replace 1.1?? Because a program I use (Sony Soundforge 8) is telling me I need Framework 1.1, even though I have Framework 2.0 installed
  16. I've just made myself a new unattended CD as my last one is a little outdated (November 2004! ) This time I used nLite. Everything installs fine and superquick, but when Windows starts for the first time my mouse & keyboard do not respond. Is there anything I may have removed from Windows using nLite that would cause this?
  17. SO there is no performance advantage using this method? I have my documents backed up on External HD, so I will probably just unpartition my drive then Thanks
  18. Is there an advantage of having a seperate partition for Windows, Program Files & Documents as opposed to having them all on the same drive? Since my first unattended install over a year ago I've had it setup so Windows would be on C:\, Program Files on D:\ and My Documents on E:\ Just wondering if there is any advantage of this, or if it's just as easy to have it all on the same drive
  19. Yeah I started my unattended install, cancelled, then started it again (forgetting to reformat C:\). Gonna do another clean install tonight cos the thought of it being there is bugging me
  20. I have the built in accounts, these are extras!
  21. Helloooo I just looked in my Documents and Settings folder and alongside my account folder named "Lee" there is a new folder called Lee.N-VSVXEB91AW3BU I also have these extra folders appeared..... All Users.WINDOWS Default User.WINDOWS LocalService.NT AUTHORITY NetworkService.NT AUTHORITY I'm guessing the long code after my name is my PC's ID? Just wondering how I've managed to get all these accounts?! Working off a fresh Install of XP Pro with SP2 Could it be because I installed XP without formatting the drive first, so it's Just installed over my previous install? If so, is there anyway to rectify this, or is it just a case of reformatting and installing again? Many thanks
  22. Does anybody have a link to the original SATA driver pack by RyanVM - I found the automation a lot easier than using the method in Bashrat's pack. (no offence at all!)
  23. I kinda agree with you, but if there is a chance I am able to replace the damaged disc I will do this.
  24. i uninstalled the via 4-in-1 IDE and I now have the settings back
