  1. Here are the detailed specs. for the thing: http://global.shuttle.com/Product/barebone...iew.asp?B_id=29
  2. Is Prime95 shareware or free? I really would rather not install shareware on her PC. Also, this is a Shuttle ST62K barebone system. I don't know the model number of the PSU. It's an external PSU, but I can't find any model number or information on it anywhere.
  3. Ok, I've zipped up all the minidump files, but it won't let me attach it. I says, "The total filespace required to upload all the attached files is greater than your per post or global limit. Please reduce the number of attachments or the size of the attachments.". I do not have any other attachments posted here and the zipped up minidumps is only ~700Kb.
  4. It's just as if the reset button had been pressed. That kind of reboot. She doesn't have many peripherals connected. Just a webcam, mouse and keyboard, and powered speakers. I'll change it to a kernel type dump when I have the chance. After the next random reboot that happens once I change it to a kernel type dump, I'll attach it here.
  5. Just assembled my sister a new PC and once in awhile it will just randomly reboot. I'm not sure what is causing this. I know it's not the CPU overheating as I've checked the BIOS right after one of these random reboots and the temps are fine. I've run memtest86+ for the past 14 hours and it hasn't detected any errors. I've checked the minidump folder in C:\Windows\Minidump and there are files with the extension *.dmp. I opened a couple with notepad, but it's just a bunch of strange symbols, letters and numbers. Last time it did a random restart, as soon as Windows started back up, I went to the Even Viewer. I didn't see any errors under the first column "Type". I did see an Information entry with the source "Save Dump". I double clicked on that and it said this: Event Type: Information Event Source: Save Dump Event Category: None Event ID: 1001 Date: 2/18/2006 Time: 1:44:48 AM User: N/A Computer: My PC Description: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000000a (0xffffffef, 0x000000ff, 0x00000001, 0x804e0417). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini021806-01.dmp. For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp. All the entries that appear in the Event Viewer around the time immediately after a random reboot have the same information as above.
  6. I do not care if it is bad to have HTML viewing. I have an email scanner that scans emails as they are downloaded. Also, plain text is not easier to read and understand. If you saw how those HTML emails are turning out after being turned into plain text (as is happening to me), you would understand.
  7. That really doesn't help me. I don't care for all these "security" and "safety" measures Microsoft put into Outlook 2003 updates. I have good virus, adware / spyware scanners running that also check my emails. I JUST WANT TO BE ABLE TO SEE HTML EMAILS THE WAY THEY WERE MEANT TO BE VIEWED! I do not want to see mangled up, unreadable emails. Sigh... I guess I'm gonna have to look for another email program that doesn't have crippled HTML email viewing capabilities.
  8. I'm pretty sure I don't have it set to plain text or rich text, but how do I check to make sure? I'm not concerned about the "safety". I have enough email scanners to keep me safe.
  9. Yeah, I've tried all the different settings in the security options. Nothing seems to work.
  10. I'm having a little problem with Outlook 2003. Everytime I receive emails with HTML, graphics, links, etc., it comes in mangled. All the html is in the form of hyperlinks. For example, I receive email promos from Newegg.com and whenever that comes in, all the pictures are links to the pictures instead of the actual pictures being displayed. Also, the actual product links in the email show the full url in blue instead of just how it really is (the name of the product shown is a clickable link to the product). Does anyone know how to fix this?
  11. I wonder if there are ones opposite of this: http://www.usbmax.com/USBG-1KPS2_PS-2_Keyb...2000_and_XP.cfm or if it would still work if I used some adapter to convert each end to the opposite (male to female, female to male).
  12. It's "mice". Anyway, USB and PS/2 ports both deliver 5V so I don't think it's a power problem. I'm guessing now that the keyboard is purely USB and has no chip or something in it that will let it work with USB to PS/2 adapters. So anyone know if there are any in-line adapters that I could plug between the keyboard and the USB to PS/2 adapter that will convert the keyboard's signals to PS/2 and vice versa? Does something like that exist?
  13. Yeah, figured the green one wouldn't work as well, but did you read everything before that? I tried two different purple ones as well...
  14. Yeah. I've tried two different purple USB to PS/2 adapters already. One came from an older Logitech keyboard and the other from a Logitech MX3100 set. I've also tried a green USB to PS/2 adapter just for the heck of it. With all three, the keyboard doesn't work. I know it works though as it is just fine when I hook it up to one of my USB ports.
  15. I just got this Dell keyboard: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=5818971530 http://pcpartsinc.com/prods/DE-W7658.jpg It's a simple USB keyboard (no USB hub built into it). I tried to use a purple, generic USB to PS/2 adapter (has keyboard icon on it), but my computer would give a boot error saying that it couldn't find a keyboard. I want to use it on the PS/2 port because I like having the ability to power on my PC with my keyboard (my BIOS has an option for this). Anyone know of a USB to PS/2 adapter / converter that will work with this keyboard? Thanks.
  16. I recently tried using a dual monitor setup on my PC (running on Windows XP Pro. SP2 w/ all available Windows Updates). Worked great, but had to send out one of the monitors to exchange it. It's gonna be awhile till I get it back. The problem is that when I had both monitors setup, when I would open Outlook and some other programs, I moved their window to the second monitor. Eventually they started opening up in the second monitor on their own. Now that I don't have that second monitor, whenever I open those programs, they open out of the Viewable screen as if the second monitor was still there. I've tried right click on their button down in the taskbar and selecting "Move", but nothing happens. Anyone know how I can get those programs to move back to my primary / single monitor? Thanks.
  17. Thanks atomizer. I made this one (just a test version) and it works perfectly for me: @echo off taskkill /f /im firefox.exe call "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" start /d"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" firefox.exe goto :eof Now I just need to find out how to hide the DOS Window and taskbar button.
  18. Not sure if this should go in the programming forums, but can anyone please show me how to write a batch file that will launch a program and then close / exit another one at the same time, and then when the program that was launched is closed, re-launch / re-open the one that was closed in the beginning? This is for World of Warcraft and Logitech Setpoint. When World of Warcraft is launched, I want Logitech Setpoint to close and when I close World of Warcraft, I want Logitech Setpoint to re-launch. Thanks for any help.
  19. Ok, so if I use this pack, will WMP10 be FULLY functional? The reason I ask this now is that I see these posts above about the hardware acceleration not working or something and now we have to add something manually to some file?
  20. Gonna make a new XP disk soon. So this is the correct order?: 1) NLite options, fixes, etc 2) GNOME's WMP10 slipstreamer Before making the ISO with NLite, do I run the WMP10 slipstreamer in the same directory where NLite extracted all the files from the Windows CD? Thanks.
  21. Ok. I have two partitions on my hard drive: C and D. I'm running Windows XP Pro. SP2. When go to run error-checking for C it tells me that it has to do it the next time I restart or startup my PC. However, for D it just does it from within Windows. Is there any way I can do error-checking for D at restart as well? I want Windows to do the error-checking for both partitions at restart, C then D. Thanks for any help.
  22. Nice work Gnome! Have gotten around to the above yet? I wish you luck on your finals.
