BIOS update? Already tryed?
Yeah HP has an Update to thier BIOS, But it still does not allow Overclocking of any kind. It's baiscly like my BIOS Just with added AMD Processor Support.
I'll sugest to go to propeties, then look for the compatibity and switch it to "run as XP SP2", that's worked for my drivers
And for another tweaking program, you should google for one
Thanks a lot man I found CrystalCPUID it allows me to increase the voltage to my cpu in windows and thanks for that tip for Systool, I can't belive I didn't think of that.
It happens mate glad you got rid of this issue
And btw, welcome to the TPU
hey guys my boot time was fine buit now its alll sorts of slow iv defragged using third party stuff cleared the prefetch cleared the temp killed apps etc on start up including services and it takes me like 4min to get to a working desktop`
obt above i mentioned the software distribution folder after updates in vista you CAN delete the contents of this folder without losing your just downloaded things i had 2gb of old updates the trick is after your updates have been installed and copnfigured delete the contents of this folder to gain some serious space.
Anyone Know how to edit Boot.ini ?
Apparently they dont have boot.ini anymore in vista. But there must be a way of editing it, I want to apply the 3Gb Switch.
Vista uses BCDEdit to make changes to boot options. It's a command line tool. VistaBootPro basically gives you a gui for it.
My Second Sata drive wont turn up in Vista
In bios it doesnt get picked up either...weird
Is that the one that was giving you issues? Check the cable again?
Yeah il swap the cables and see if the other drive dissapears. I might have another dodgy cable lol...man thats bad luck.
Btw with the Vista Boot PRO, how exactly do I add the entry?
I goto "Manage OS Entries" and click the "Add new OS Entry" checkbox?
Crap, you caught me without Vista installed, atm. lol
Still works in XP, so I'll download and see if it still runs without Vista installed.
How much ram is Vista seeing, Reven?
Ok, go to the advanced tab of VistaBootPro, select your Vista install from the drop down menu, and click the Enable Physical Address Extension box, then click Apply Settings. Reboot.
After you get back into Vista, go to your start menu. In programs, go to the Accessories folder. Right-click Command Prompt, and select Run As Administrator. In the command box type this:
bcdedit.exe /set IncreaseUserVa 3072
That should enable the 3GB switch.
EDIT: Original had a typo, it's bcdedit, not bsdedit. lol
hold on...I rebooted after enabling PAE and still no 4 gb
Or does it only turn up after I se the command prompt?
PAE should've freed up some of that ram.
Try the 3GB switch to see if that helps.
Also, does your BIOS have a memory remap option? If so, enable it.
If worse comes to worse, try 64bit Vista. lol
Yeah i bought 32 bit before I upgraded my memory pity...
Ill Check bios and then redo it in Vista Boot Pro
I checked bios...PAE/Memory remap is enabled.
Still only 2 gigs in My Computer
OK, i guess just try the 3GB switch anyway. Other than that, I'm out of ideas.
No dice. Dw about it.
Well i installed vista ultamate last night and cant over clock past 2.1???With xp 3.5 no-problems with vista it just freeze's the loading screen but can boot in safe mode at 3.5??
