Preferred Solution: how to Unlock advanced features in bios

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Unlock Advanced Menu in Bios

No, that is NOT the fastest computer to game on.  Here is a little primer ... E series devices are 'Entry level' products, designed for the casual user who wants to do the basics at a reasonable price.  These models are not targeted at heavy users like gamers, photo editors, video makers, etc.  For big time gaming power, take a look at the Predator line.  Now THAT is a gaming platform!

A:Unlock the advanced functions of the Bios InsydeH20 Rev 3.5 ...

Since we don't know what system the other person had we can't help you. And a bios by the same manufactures doesn't mean their options is the same as your option based on your system. So don't think what happens on another bios is the same as yours. And since we have no specs or P/N from theirs to verify what biso version they have know one can know for sure. And maybe their bios upgrades gives them that options but for you system that isn't available. So before trying to tie two different bios from different system is like comparing Apples to Oranges.

never seen this before--

installed SSD for the very first time. after I installed Vista I installed the Intel Chipset driver, then restarted
System Properties wouldn't open--
Control Panel wouldn't open---
Windows Update wouldn't open--
right click Computer did nothing--

ran sfc /scannow said every thing fine at 98%--

so I reinstalled Vista--- same thing---
found 1 thing on Google about may need SP1--
so went ahead & installed eithernet driver---
for some reason just as soon as I opened internet explorer-- Windows Update put little
Icon by the time--but still couldn't open Windows Update.
let it do what it wanted--- finaly pop up said to restart.

after restart Vista acts like its back to normal---
installing Vista SP1 stand alone download now---

this is very weird-- never happened before with regular harddrives---

luckuly windows must have had a patch for this problem
 

A:lost all advanced features after restart

Vista is not aware of SSD's or what needs to be disabled when it's installed on SSD's to keep performance up and to keep the wear down. You must disable several things or use a tweak utility to do it for you, here's one: http://www.techspot.com/downloads/4926-ssd-tweaker.html

You should update to SP2, the Platform Update, and all other updates as quickly as possible to get Vista patched and optimized. Then apply the SSD tweaks.

Hi,

I have a Jetway N2GAP motherboard with an nvidia nForce2 integrated graphics processor. In the Advanced Chipset Features section of the BIOS, the settings that I am concerned with and their current values are listed below (the other values that the setting can be changed to are shown in the brackets next to each value of the specific setting):

Internal VGA Share Memory: 64M (8M, 16M, 32M, 64M, 128M, Disabled)
AGP Aperture Size: 64M (32M, 64M, 128M, 256M, 512M)
AGP 8X Support: Enabled (Disabled)
AGP Fast Write: Enabled (Disabled)
System BIOS Cacheable: Enabled (Disabled)
Video RAM Cacheable: Enabled (Disabled)

I have a 1GB of RAM, and am running Window XP SP1. What would be the optimal values that I can use for the above settings when I want to get better video and game performance?

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

ducky303
 

A:Help with Advanced Chipset Features for N2GAP board

If you want really good game performance go out and buy an AGP video card. While the board has fairly good integrated graphics they are still several generations behind a decent AGP video card like the Geforce 6600GT or Radeon 9800PRO.

But to answer your question:
Internal VGA Share Memory: 128M - this will reduce your 1024MB of RAM to 896 MB
AGP Aperture Size: 256M
AGP 8X Support: Enabled
AGP Fast Write: Enabled
System BIOS Cacheable: Disabled
Video RAM Cacheable: Disabled

I have windows 7 64 bit with avast internet security 7 installed.

Someday back i was reviewing my windows firewall and saw that it couldn't be opened. i have installed all the windows update and my computer isn't infected with any virus. what should i do?

A:can't open firewall with updated advanced features

This could be something as simple as the firewall service having been turned off, and then all you need to do is go into the services section and enable it, make sure it's set to automatic at that.

However, how is it that you know your system is not infested with some sort of malware? A very common tactic of malware is to disable firewalls and other protection programs.

Hi,
I am looking for a word processor that allows me to do something similar to the "spoiler" tag which is often used in forums.
in other words... a function that gives me the possibility to hide/unhide some marked text by pressing a button.

if you con't know what i am talking about, check this example (it's in the second post)
MagiQuest Forums • View topic - Spoiler Tags

i would also use a different solution as long as it provides similar functionality... any ideas?

A:looking for Word processor with advanced features - spoiler feature

Evidently Open Office can do it. Maybe not with an embedded button in text, but I take it a toolbar button can toggle view/hide of text. Check out this thread:

The other thing I looked for was some kind of Ole or ActiveX button that could be embedded in the document. But I didn't find anything there.

I went through the settings available through the camera app, but zoom and pan are not there. I am using Win 10. I think the install that did it was July 24, 2018--KB4340917 (OS Build 17134.191).
