    HP ML150 G6 not detecting HD4850

    I have a HP ML150 G6 Server that has a curious problem. As soon as I put a specific HD4850 in the inside, the card's D1601 LED comes on and the card does not startup. But this card works perfectly in any other PC. I have tried other display cards in this server and they work without any...

    SpeedStep not working properly

    I have a small server at home for storing stuff that has C2D E4500 with a Gigabyte GA-VM900M MB. This Cpu is stuck on 1200 GHZ and the multiplier on 6 even in full screen apps. I have updated the bios and switched all power saving options of both in Windows and in the bios and still nothing. I...

    exactly. The PC is the superior platform and should be treated like that.

    Gta4 PC

    Not enjoy less a few months later, but enjoy more if it came out sooner. Besides, MS secured this title for its Xbox360 why not Windows? I paid big bucks for my Vista just to have Direct X10 for my games.

    E8400 vs Phenom X3 8750

    I got my girlfriend a PC with a AMD Phenom X3 8750. This processor seems to be much slower than my E8400, especially when playing games which is its primary use, even though it has 2Gb more of faster ram (1066) than mine (800). Is a upgrade to the X4 worth the money for the performance again...

    Second 3870, worth it?

    I would say no on the second 3870 and yes on the 4870. Got one this weekend and it beats the socks of the 3870. If you have 4870 you could always add another 4870 but if you buy another 3870 you will have buy two new cards if want to stick to crossfire on your next upgrade.

    Maxtor Hard Drive Beep

    Same here. The jumper position didn't make any difference. I would like to know if this Hdd has a build in speaker or where does the beep came from?

    S3 Graphics Chrome 440 GTX

    that is why i provided the link. so that you can see the comparison. i just can not see the point of such a card unless it is for a PC with no integraded GPU.

    S3 Graphics Chrome 440 GTX

    yes i didn't mention that you must look at the texture fillrate of my office IGP and it's bus width which i agree is a $hitty GPU. but it still doesn't justify spending $69.95 for a card that would serve the same purpose as it does not have enough grunt for current games...

    S3 Graphics Chrome 440 GTX

    Should i switch to windows vista?

    The 32bit version you will lose 512mb and even as much as 750mb. My opinion is that if you like Vista install it but most people don't and they stick to XP. You will find a lots of technical comparisons and people trying to force their opinion on you, but if you like Vista your new machine is...

    Need help shrinking a volume

    Yes windows does not allow you to resize partitions but in my case i tried various 3rd party partition resizing tools, which resized the partitions but when i restarted, the PC partitions went back to their original sizes until i disabled the raid.
