  1. I did method 2 install and keep drivers. Now during the setupcopyOEMInf.exe I am getting a bunch of popups that say the software you are installing as not pased windows logo testing to verifiy its copmatability with xp
  2. from http://www.cnn.com/2005/WORLD/europe/04/22...t.iq/index.html LONDON, England -- Workers distracted by phone calls, e-mails and text messages suffer a greater loss of IQ than a person smoking marijuana, a British study shows. The constant interruptions reduce productivity and leave people feeling tired and lethargic, according to a survey carried out by TNS Research and commissioned by Hewlett Packard. The survey of 1,100 Britons showed: # Almost two out three people check their electronic messages out of office hours and when on holiday # Half of all workers respond to an e-mail within 60 minutes of receiving one # One in five will break off from a business or social engagement to respond to a message. # Nine out of 10 people thought colleagues who answered messages during face-to-face meetings were rude, while three out of 10 believed it was not only acceptable, but a sign of diligence and efficiency. But the mental impact of trying to balance a steady inflow of messages with getting on with normal work took its toll, the UK's Press Association reported. In 80 clinical trials, Dr. Glenn Wilson, a psychiatrist at King's College London University, monitored the IQ of workers throughout the day. He found the IQ of those who tried to juggle messages and work fell by 10 points -- the equivalent to missing a whole night's sleep and more than double the 4-point fall seen after smoking marijuana. "This is a very real and widespread phenomenon," Wilson said. "We have found that this obsession with looking at messages, if unchecked, will damage a worker's performance by reducing their mental sharpness. "Companies should encourage a more balanced and appropriate way of working." Wilson said the IQ drop was even more significant in the men who took part in the tests. "The research suggests that we are in danger of being caught up in a 24-hour 'always on' society," said David Smith of Hewlett Packard. "This is more worrying when you consider the potential impairment on performance and concentration for workers, and the consequent impact on businesses."
  3. So I updated my copy of SAV 9.0.2 with the latest updates ect. When testing it still downloads what it says are 2 updates. From what I red on here that is just Symantec being lame and not knowing that I have the latest updates. XP does not tell me my definitions are out-of-date. should just ignore it and be on my merry way? It downloads Avenge 1.5 MicroDefs2 Corp 9 So I assume its just Symantec being lame. Correct???
  4. Asus is #1 in my book for Pentium chips but I am not as familiar with AMD's to make the same statement with them. I can look into Abit. The reason I do not like MSI boards is I have had many problems with them before being incompatible with my hardware.
  5. OK! AMD it is! The socket 939 chip looks to be what I am looking for... ByeBye Intel. Now for motherboard. Asus mabey? Not MSI.
  6. WOW! Not a single vote for Intel hu? If the members of THIS forum all suggest AMD that will make me strongly consider the AMD 64 athlon. @boooggy With my budget of $200-300 for a CPU I probably can not afford dual core
  7. I have been an Intel guy forever but the past few months AMD has been getting better reviews. Now with Windows XP64 out mabey I should switch to AMD. I play video games like Half Life 2 and Intel LGA775 chips are better for that I think. Planning for the future it might be better to own a 64-bit chip. I'm looking to spend between 250-300 on a CPU.
  8. Come on, it is virtually impossible to write almost any program perfectly without any bugs let alone an operating system. Not only that but some of the patches are for things that were not around when XP first came out. IE the malicious software removal tool. I do not know of any program that once it is released the company stops supporting it and does not release any updates or newer versions.
  9. Thanks but I knew that stuff already, my point is in all the time I have spend building computers ect I barely remember ever needing to install chipset drivers. I mean I know all motherboards come with chipsets and that’s kind of what sets them apart from each other. But what are the drivers for?!? You say they are needed to use all the capabilities of your specific chipset. So without these drivers your USB Firewire will not work properly and your cpu and memory will not be able to communicate properly? That does not make sense because I never had a problem. It sounds like they just help them function better but I can not figure out what they can not do without them, does it speed up the computer a little bit or what. I am going crazy here
  10. *guts & re-rolls* Puff, Puff, Give
  11. I might buy the Tan one for like $3-5.
  12. Are you using a Logitech mouse or keyboard with either The Logitech Mouse Ware software or The Logitech iTouch software loaded? Version 9.10 and 9.24 of MouseWare and pre 1.5 of iTouch will cause an error similar to what you are describing. If this is the case just go to logitech.com and download the latest software
  13. Any important info on the hard drive? Might save time just removing the partation and doing a total clean install.
  14. dir /b > filename.txt simple enough if this is what you are talking about
  15. What kind of noise is it? High pitch, that makes me think speaker maybe if you have a built in speaker to the mobo. Does the noise happen if you just let the PS run idle, like not in an OS or anything. For example in the bios or something. Regardless I agree with amoss24, if you just bought it and your 100% sure it’s coming from the PS and chances are its defective you should get a new one. Last thing you want is your PSU short circuiting your mobo or worse. I remember at work when one of our APC units blew. All these loud popping noises, smoke everywhere. Somehow all my servers were ok but the UPS was gone. Better of exchanging it now and not having to worry about it later on.
  16. WoooooooooooooooooooooooooW Thats deep. Good idea tho, sounds like some work went into it Good luck with your script!
  17. I never even knew systeminfo command existed! I learn something new everytime I visit this website\forum, and thats like many times a day!
  18. VBS SCRIPT strComputer = "." Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _ & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") Set colOperatingSystems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ ("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem") For Each objOperatingSystem in colOperatingSystems Wscript.Echo "Install Date: " _ & objOperatingSystem.InstallDate Next ref http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default....ing_systems.asp
  19. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Cute kid. Welcome to msfn.org! This has been my favorite website since the day I found it. That even includes porn sites! Hope you learn a lot from here like I have.
  20. Ok, so I know the old via chipsets needed drivers and there are drivers for the new Intel chipsets. I have been searching Google, these forums, asking friends and I am still confused. Chipset is part of the motherboard and basically controls what does what. So what do the drivers do? Can somebody give me an example of when you would use chipset drivers? I am trying to figure out if I want them on my XP CD but I want to know what they do. I red somewhere that they should be the first drivers to install on a machine before video audio mouse ect.. Still unclear about it tho.
  21. Weather you have an external hard drive or an internal hard drive it is generally the SAME DRIVE. The difference is when it is outside it talks to the computer using USB or Fire wire connections. You can make the hard drive bootable but if your computers BIOS does not support booting from USB it will not work. What do you mean buy a bootable hard drive? Do you want to purchase a drive with XP-Pre-installed on it? That would be hard to do to configure it to your system specs. Somebody asked me yesterday actually, they wanted to go to Best Buy and purchase a hard drive for his computer with XP already installed. I said they do not just sell drives like that because the same drive would have to be set-up differently if it was a Pentium 2 machine then if you had like an amd 64 bit machine
  22. 1. Half-Life: Opposing force - Online play is godlike 2. Half-Life 2 3. Half-Life 4. Doom 3 5. Star Wars- Knights of the Old Republic 6. Battlefield-1942 and vietnam
  23. Try booting off your windows XP cd and doing a repair install. I have seen that before but mainly when taking a hard drive from one computer and putting it in a totally different system. Repair install should work for you.
