  1. You will HAVE to disconnect the WIRE to use WIRELESS (see quote, dude)!

    indeed i am wired atm, but i still wanted to see other wireless networks! i should be able to also connect to some else wireless network, should I ?

    or would like to see the available wireless connections, without having to unplug

    okay, i understand i cant do it, i give up :/

  2. Windows won't show you the wireless icon in the systray if you are already connected to a wired connection.

    Here is a picture of the wireless icon:


    A = wireless connections available

    B = connected to wireless network (shows signal strength)

    When you click on it in the "A" state, you will see a list of available networks, including whether or not they are open or secured.

    the problem is that somehow that icon doesnt appear in traybar (I probably disabled it)

    isnt there any other way to bring up the window with the available wireless networks?

  3. hello!

    android has a so marvelous way to connect via wifi: you simple click a button, it scans for available networks and you choose to connect

    while i consider myself pc advanced literate, i still cannot figure out how to do it in win7

    maybe i expected it to be simple

    any hint?


  4. hello!

    there is a constant noise from my speakers that is only audible when i have them switched on

    the noise increases when i increase the volume (which i dont have music or something playing) and in very low volume it is not audible

    also, the noise is not heard (probably either covered or maybe disappeared) when music or something is heard from the speakers

    I dont know if it is an OS problem, a driver problem, a hardware problem or else

    but i can say it happened with winxp_x64 and with win7_x64

    my hardware is:

    Logitech LS11

    Motherboard Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H (rev. 1.0)

    my os is win7_x64

    the audio driver is:

    Realtek Function driver for Realtek Azalia audio chip (Including Microsoft UAA/HDMI Driver in English edition)

    i also would like to note that i have a 5m expansion 3.5mm cable going out of my pc tower, which connects with my speakers' cable

    any idea?


  5. Depending on what the board actually is...
    If you'd be so kind as to specify, then assistance may be forthcoming. <--Needed

    the motherboard is Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H (rev. 1.0)

    If you in fact have a fully functional OS installed try looking in Device Manager for each Hardware (e.g. the Realtek Audio) by right-clicking "Properties" and clicking "Details - the exact VEN_DEV will be listed and you proceed from there. ;)

    the hardware appearing in Device Manager are the hardware i need drivers for?

  6. but the Realtek implementation in my Gigabyte motherboard maybe be unique and may require a customized driver

    It's very unlikely (why would they use a customised driver for LAN and sound card?). They are just the standard Realtek drivers. It's (almost) always better to use the newest version of drivers from the manufacturer website, not the drivers listed by Gigabyte simply because the ones listed by Gigabyte are usually not updated very often (if ever).

    okay, and how do i see the components of my motherboard that need driver, so that i will search for them in their respective manufacturers' websites?

  7. hello

    just installed Win7

    can you explain me please the following:

    1) i connected a hd and i was not able to run exe's in it, etc

    i wonder, if i have logged in as administrator, why it still requires for permissions, since they are set as 'full' for admin accounts?

    anyway, i set full permissions for all users and that fixed the problem

    2) i disabled index service manually, but how do i stop notifications 'your search may be slow' ? also, how do i detele the data of indexing service that are stored and are now useless?

    3) i am not sure if i use AHCI, and if yes, if i use it for all my drives and any drives i add in the future

    in my BIOS i last time have set manually to IDE

    i also, no longer get the bios notification to enable AHCI when i start my pc

    please advise

    4) i 've heard that aero is a resource hog, how do i disable it? i dont know if it is enabled atm


  8. What is your OS?
    I now have WinXP 64bit and I will install Win7
    Really? :w00t:

    JFYI - Vista drivers ARE (generally) compatible with Windows7. ;)

    To get the VEN/DEV info -

    Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools-System Information

    Now click on "Components" in the left pane

    Now click on (at top) File->Export->(pick a folder and give it a name)

    Now ZIP it and upload to here so we can help you find them.

    done, thanks!


  9. My crystal ball - though foggy - tells me that soon someone will post something like:

    Hah! But with a 32 OS you cannot access memory beyond 3Gb!

    and some other of the usual 64 bit fanboyism, so - as a preventive measure :whistle: - I will post a couple links:




    you are saying that Win7 32bit can handle more physical RAM? how? what is the upper limit? there will be no problems at all?

  10. running chkdisk has stopped the bsod, but the wrong size indication in explorer is still there!

    Are those 195GB the actual size of your C: drive before you "tried" whatever you tried (by the way, "after trying to move, merge, delete, etc some partitions" is quite a poor description of what happened or did not happen). :}

    no, the actual size of my drive is 500GB and it appeared like that previously

    as for what actually happened: I tried to delete a partition and then resize my primary partition to include all the disk size, with EaseUS

    after it freezed and I killed it, I got that bsod and errors
