  1. I have a very curious bluetooth driver problem. I purchased a wireless microsoft branded bluetooth mouse. Because my HP laptop does not have built in bluetooth I have to use the accompanying bluetooth adapter. The first time I plugged the adapter in it was recognised and a Microsoft wireless bluetooth 2.0 driver was installed. The first time I rebooted after this the scroll wheel on my mouse stopped working. I discovered that windows had suddenly installed a "Generic bluetooth adapter driver" and that the microsoft driver was suddenly marked as not functioning properly. Once I removed the Gene
  2. I´m trying to help out my computer illiterate friend. He just got a new computer with 1x120GB SSD and 1x1TB HDD. He was concerned that he would run out of space on his SSD and that it would abe a pain to manage the space properly so I suggested that he simply junction his "Users" folder over from his SSD to his HDD. I´ve done this successfully on my own system which is installed as english windows, however he has a localized version which comes in norwegian. Thus, in explorer, his "Users" folder is named "Brukere". But this must just be some visual trickery because in command prompt the Users
  3. I reformated a second time. This time I only got one partition but the partition was still named "arid in pes" and it appears to have the same 0 kb files all over. Strange.
  4. That would be amazing, but seriously, what's the odds of something like that happening? I can't quite think of which text file it would be either. The contents sound more like something out of a novel really.
  5. Diggin through my drawer i found an old 2GB usb stick that I had gotten at work some time ago. I plugged it into my machine and discovered it contained a few old work documents. Since none of it was essential I decided to reformat the drive. I left the name as "untitled" and proceded to format it as fat32. What happened next is complete mystery. The drive somehow formated itself into two partitions where one was a 500mb hidden unaccessible partition with the name "untitled" and the other partition was 1.5GB and had named itself "arid in Pes". I then opened the "arid in Pes" partition and was s
  6. Hmm, I'm assuming that the attrib tool is part of windows and that it can be used with the command prompt? I haven't been able to test this theory because the problem is that even if I run CMD as Admin it still won't allow me to view the files at all, even though it reports the folder size as correct it says that there are 0 files and none are shown. Annoying really. Also, would the attrib tool allow me to apply this to a folder, sub-folder and files at once or do I have to do one file at a time. Because if so that would make this incredibly tedious work considering that there are plenty of fi
  7. I have a folder that contains backups pf my installer files. This folder is also synchronized to a server for further redundancy. Today I needed one of those files so I browsed to it's location only to find that the folder was shockingly empty. I then logged onto the server and found that all files were present. Then I ran the backup tool to synchronize my computer and the server but it promptly reported that everything was in sync. Checking the properties of the local folder I found that the foldersize indicated the file should be there but it wasn't visible to me at least. I was only allowed
  8. Have you checked the event viewer in computer management? Go to: Start > Right Click "Computer" and choose "Manage" to open the computer management console. Then under the event viewer check all the windows logs and look for any error around the time you are booting up. There is an incredible amount of info stored there that might help you.
  9. Am I having a completely different problem then the rest of you? I have 3 x 1.5 TB 7200.11 drives. All have been updated to first SD1A and then SD1B. Two of the drives have been ejected from my RAID 5 array at different times due to several read errors of sectors on the disks. I am able to reintroduce the disks after a deep format/wipe of the disk. Does this mean that my disks are simply bad and that I need to RMA them or is this related to the freezing, disks not being detected errors that I'm reading about?
  10. Apparently this does not seem to be a much used feature, eh? Anyone care to make an educated guess? I'll be needing to test it out at some point but I'm not exactly sure where to start. I'll see if I can dig up my vlite config at some point and post it. Maybe someone will spot the problem right away.
  11. I think I might have overdone my last use of vLite a bit because I am no longer able to connect to wireless networks that use WPA-Enterprise. Regular WPA is working just fine but the Enterprise variant spits out an "unexpected error occurred" when I try to configure it. Does anyone know what the difference is between the two? I'm not even supposed to connect to a domain.
  12. I'm trying to create a completely unattended install of vista x64 using vLite and WPI. It install just fine but it does not seem to copy the contents of the $oem$ folder to the HDD nor execute the setupcomplete.cmd It should perhaps be noted that I've kept the user creation part of the setup and so it does not autologin to the admin account. Could this be the reason? I'd appriciate some input from someone that has done this successfully before.
  13. Obviously I should have thought of that. I will try it as soon as I get the chance. I have been looking at using different ports, mainly because I thought I might need some kind of port forwarding, though as far as I can tell this will only help WAN speed and not LAN? Furthermore I have looked into what ports the NAS is using and it seems to use a prefixed range of ports that I can't really do much with. I usually use an ftp app for transferring files though you may also map network drives in windows. The FTP apps initiate contact on port 21 and then starts trasnfering on a 555XX port where ea
  14. I have Synology DS408 with 2 x Seagate 1.5TB 7200.11 SATA drives in RAID 1. I realize there might be several reasons I might not be hitting the average speed reported by others but the only thing that changed between LAN speeds of 10-11 MB/s and an average of 8 MB/s was that I UPGRADED from a 100Mb router to a Gigabit LAN router. It really seems like it should have been the other way around? To provide more spesifics, my mobo is ASUS A8N-E, and I'm using the built in Gigabit port. I am running Vista Ultimate 32-bit, and have ESET Security Suite as local firewall. Turning it off makes no differ
  15. I recently purchased a NAS for file storage and media streaming. It had been reviewed to reach average network transfer speeds of 25MB/s. However, I have a Gigabit LAN port on my mobo, but it was hooked up to my old D-Link DI-643M (or some such) which only had a 100Mbit max LAN transfer speed. I belived this was the reason that the max speed I was able to transfer to my NAS at was around 10-11 MB/s, but that was a nice steady speed. However this speed would not do for some of the tasks that I had in mind, and so I purchased a D-Link DIR-655 N router which has Gigabit lan. I hooked it up and g
