  1. Haha I wish that was it cause it's starting to frustrate me! spent all day trying to fix this...
  2. No luck... gonna try a BIOS update in a bit but starting to think it's not the BIOS...
  3. thanks for the quick reply. I don't really have another PSU or MB to test if it's faulty. I will test them if when I get my hands on one later. Anyways, I've began to think it's BIOS related. I have a Gigabyte EP35-DS3. I went into the BIOS option and found some options under that I think could be related: AC Back Function Soft-Off by PWR BTTN I messed around with these, but no luck. Any other BIOS setting that could cause this? Tried disabling wake on LAN, but still nothing
  4. I was playing about with the cabling, and I found that the computer does not switch itself back on when I unplug the ATX 12V PSU cable that goes in the MB... However, I fail to see anything on the screen when I do so, so leaving it unplugged is not an option... (it's this guy here that I'm talking about): I'm not sure if this is really relevant, cause the PC shouldn't work without this cable, but i guess it might help.
  5. Hi, I've built a few systems already before, but I've run into some trouble building my latest one. Everytime after I switch off the computer, either through windows shutdown or through the power button, the computer switches off and after 4-5 seconds, it powers itself back on! It's quite annoying as the only way to shut it down is the switch at the back of the PSU. I don't know what I've done wrong. I would guess that it's to do with the Power header where i connect the case to the MB, but I've checked that and it seems to be alright. What else could be causing this?? Thanks for your help!
  6. Hi, I am having the same problem. However, after installation, my wireless adapter could detect my network and connect without any problems. Recently, it just can't find any networks. I tried using Belkin's utility to connect but it also fails to find any networks. I'm going to try the wifi-hopper mentioned here a bit later as well. I think that the problem is not due to the Wired AutoConfig because I have it enabled... Is a reinstall the only other solution??
  7. I have this same problem with my nLite'd XP... is there a fix??
  8. Hi guys, I must have somehow disabled the ability to pin to the start-menu with my nLite XP. Do you know if there's a registry tweak to re-enable it?? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi, While preparing my WinXP with nLite, I must have accidentally chosen to disable the option of pinning apps to the start-menu. Whenever, i right click on a shortcut on my start-menu program list, I can't see the option to pin. Also, I can't drag any files there to pin. Is this fixable with a registry tweak or something? Thanks for your help!
  10. I created an image of the partition with Ghost and was able to retrieve all my files with Ghost Explorer. Formatted it and now it's all fine. thanks
  11. Hello! I have a problem which is more related to partitions that Windows XP but i didn't know where else to post it... I have an external 2.5' HDD (WD Passport). I split it into two partitions, one all my files, and one empty. After a while, I attempted to merge them again with Norton PartitionMagic 8.5... It gave an error message and wasn't able to completely finish the merge process. As a result now, when i plug in the HD via USB, no partition is recognized by Windows, not appearing on 'My Computer'. However, the drive is recognized under device manager. When I open PartitionMagic, it shows my drive with one partition with the 'Used Space' of all my files. I know it's not a case of a faulty disk, just a badly configured partition How can I go about repairing a partition, without losing it? When i run a check-up on the partition with PMagic i get an error 'External attribute header mismatch'... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
  12. hi. I had the same problem as you did and spent an entire day trying to recover TCP/IP drivers to get DHCP working again. Didn't manage, so I just created a new nLite XP installation without removing as many components and it worked... sorry but I couldn't pinpoint which component actually causes DHCP to fail. Anyone else have this problem?
  13. Is it possible to integrate IE7 to Windows Installation? Like using RyanVM's Integrator or nLite? Thanks.
  14. Hi. I get the following error message when I try to access any share on my USB External Hard Drive: This only occurs when I try to access shares on that specifc drive, no matter what folder it is in it. All my other shares work fine and are configured in the exact same way. What could be causing this? I googled the problem and came up with a registry solution of putting value 0 to PagedPoolSize entry but it was already set that way. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
