  1. nothing like that would cause the system to stay on, i'm almost willing to bed its an ACPI issue [however i'm no gambler]. my old server does it, computers at my school do it, i'm sure its no different. you just need to push the power button once. however, that leaves me to wonder what a different power button would do for the situation. I would not bother to post this advice unless I had already solved this exact problem using this exact procedure. It may not work for him, but it also might work for him.
  2. Disconnect every extra device (CD Drives, floppy, fans except CPU fan, etc). Remove any extra cards except video. Use a wired mouse and different keyboard. Now what happens? If it works OK, add one thing back at a time and test until you find the culprit.
  3. Look here for the best discussion and solution: Nforce Sata Drivers I had a lot of problems with the drivers from Windows Update and used a neat tool called Google to find a solution.
  4. Just for clarification, how do you plan to access HKCU when no one is logged in? --and I quote: "And it runs before any user logs in.. It runs while the CTRL ALT DELETE screen is loading."
  5. Nope, evaporative air conditioners as used in the US SouthWest do not remove moisture --- in fact they add it.
  6. It's likely a bad nic (network card) but first try changing the port on the switch that this computer connects to (might be a bad port).
  7. Maybe you meant there is a non-extreme model although there is also an old non-ultra? (At any rate, my link points to the ultra-extreme, which is the very latest)
  8. I researched this at length. This is what I got: Thermalright Extreme By the way, wikerwolf's temperatures are amazing approx 47 to 60 degrees f at idle --- he must live in a fridge!

    This is rare and related to certain software that you have installed. Some Norton products are notorious for causing this. Normally no one has to change IRPStackSize.
  10. Thanks, that makes sense and relieves me too. I don't see that affecting me then.
  11. Yeah, me too. I'm hoping it's baloney.
  12. What is this all about? Quote from Susan Bradley in Windows Secrets Newsletter: "The unexpected release has been rather confusing, especially as I'm still bleary-eyed from the time change. The release notes state that if you applied IE 7 after installing Windows Server 2003 SP1 (and who wouldn't have?), you now need to uninstall IE 7 before you install SP2. Let me state that again: Before installing SP2 on your Windows 2003 servers, you must uninstall IE 7 if you previously installed IE 7 after Windows 2003 SP1."

  14. It does if everything is properly installed. I integrate IE7 using nLite and then runonceex the hotfixes (with noreboot, and force overwrite). All is fine on first boot and runonceex works first time and everytime thereafter. No huge delay during the process either, it's all very quick. Not what you want to hear, I'm sure.
  15. Your data shows the problem: blocked key for Office
  16. Auto-adjust or manual did nothing. However, I just tried it again on the same computer in the exact same manner. Everything was fine this time. Don't you just love computers!
  17. I attempted to install Vista on an Nforce4 machine with an older 15 inch LCD. The install windows were too large and mostly off the screen to the lower right. I could work around some of the early windows with the old alt-spacebar trick, but eventually I got stuck. Any ideas? (not practical to change monitors)
  18. If anyone had ever gotten this to work in the full universal sense, it would be one of the hottest topics on the net (as big or bigger than nLite or RyanVM). Every great (and not so great) mind has been trying to do this since the original Ghost (very first imaging program) came out. No one has succeeded except in a very limited sense (they get it to work for a small subset of the vast variety of machines). Even the commercial attempts are not even close to "universal" (Although UIU has come closest IMHO). Maybe Vista will solve this at last. Time will tell.
  19. My first check would be for 3 wires on the fan, second (if you have 3 wires) check to be sure they are plugged into the cpu fan header on the motherboard and not some other header.
  20. Gee, an addon from an unknown guy with a total of one posts. I can hardly wait to get this ---- not!
  21. If you integrate IE7 with nLite and then Runonce KB929969, everything works as intended. No reboot needed.
  22. It's nLite's way of integrating IE7 that breaks SFC. I believe that this is a known problem.
  23. all he needs are these http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_ty...amdcpusetup.exe http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_ty...ities/Setup.exe Really?? For his Conroe?? --- Intel!

Google claims that it's not quite that simple, some motherboards and\or sata chips only work with the jumper set to sata1. YMMV
