What does "in production" mean on your order build? How long does it hang in production?

Q: What does "in production" mean on your order build? How long does it hang in production?

Has Dell changed the labeling of their order status?  It used to be that once a unit went into production, it quickly went into testing, then shipping.  Here I saw processing - pre-production - now production for like a week.  Does it hang in production for a while and then jump right to shipping? I am just trying to make sense of the status labels... Thanks.  

Preferred Solution: What does "in production" mean on your order build? How long does it hang in production?

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.)

Yello, I'm planning on building a new pc with audio production in mind, but not as the sole use. Thing is I have no idea what mobo to go for and to get dual core or not. Here is my general plan:

Main drive with Debian.
Secondary drive with two XP partitions, one dedicated to audio work, one for games/anything that won't run on Linux.
1 drive for storage.
M-Audio 2496
Nvidia 7 series, undecided.

I hear some mobo chipsets can be incompatible with pro audio cards. I suppose the main question is what chipset to get. Anybody know anything on the subject?

Hi, i would like to create a PC for music production and a little bit for desktop publishing (not videos editing, just like illustrator, a little bit of photoshop).

I have a budget of 1'500$ without the monitor. I know that i would need a good processor, good motherboard, SSD and 32 Go RAM. the computer should be silent if possible.

Could you help me ? I need to create a components list

So what do you all think? For an audio production workstation, would the i7 5820K be a good fit? Would Avid Pro Tools be able to utilize all 6 cores? If not, the 6700K may be a better fit when it comes out. But I would definitely like some input from people who know the software well may be able to tell me how it interacts with the CPU and whether I should go the quad core route or the 6-core route.

The 6700K does score higher on the PCMark, which is good for the creative side of things. But I want to know if it'll really be better in the long run. Of course, this depends on price as well (dollars per performance vs dollars per longevity).


A:Planning an Audio Production Build (branch)

I have a Sonar (Platinum) studio.

My recommendation when someone asks me about computers is to buy "overkill" or as much as your wallet can stand. This holds true for a DAW workstation or any PC. Thus if it were me and $$ is no object I would go with the 6700.

A good place to discuss recording hardware is the www.gearslutz.com forum.

My desktop computer came originally with windows me. Several years ago I got windows xp professional version that gradually was updated by Microsoft to sp3. Few weeks ago my pc didn't want to boot, probably I got virus, and I couldn't find my windows xp disc. I turned up entire house but it never showed up. I bought online another disc ? windows xp sp2 home edition. I loaded it to my pc but Microsoft tells me that coa is invalid. I entered the production key that come with this disc several times and each time I got invalid key. Is there any help with the production key? Is there a way to activate my windows xp disc? Please help.

A:production key

Do a fresh install of XP Home Sp2. This will wipe any personal files from your computer so backup any files you can't live without first. Put then XP CD in the drive and reboot the computer. Boot off of the XP CD. You may need to boot into Setup (Bios) and set the Boot Priority to be CD rom drive first boot device. You should see the message Press Any Key to Boot From CD. This starts the Windows installation. When you get to the Partition Information, Format the Windows Partition and Install Windows.
What is the make and model # of your computer? After installation go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Device Manager any devices with Yellow flags need to have drivers installed. Go to the computer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in your make and model # and download any drivers you require from the Device Manager.

Hi, I need help on Network system's consultant, training, supplies, IS Support, and maintenance for a small lan which includs 1 server and 5 workstations system. Would you please tell me how to get info for calculating those costs. Thanks!


A:Production Cost for new LAN

Hate to say it, Black, but this is a free technical support site. If this is a project or potential project for you, I'd think you'd be better off checking your phone book under computer networking--my phone book has a section in the yellow pages for it and I come from a fairly small town. You'll probably need to give someone details like how much and what kind of software, mail server, and lots of other questions.

Prices like that could vary greatly depending on metro area, etc. I don't think they'd charge you just to give you an estimate. You might want to look on jobs.com, computerjobs.com, monsterjobs.com and the like and check out some of the positions offered and the prices they're paying for LAN Administrators.

I don't have much network knowledge, but that's where I'd start. I'd be making a very slightly educated GUESS at between $25 and $50 grand, maybe more. I could be way off, and I hope others will correct me if I'm wrong, but 5 professional business PCs alone could cost you 10 to 15.

Perhaps others have some comments for you.

So, I'm about to get this HP laptop, which I think is a 'test' model, because I can't find the exact same model anywhere online (not even on HP website) and it's BIOS has been wiped clean, indicating that it was probably used for company's purposes. I managed to find similar models, but with quite weaker configuration. On start up, these messages show up: 'This machine is not in committed state' and 'This BIOS is not for production use'. The laptop works flawlessly, although I'm a bit scared that these messages might have a negative influence on laptop's performance in the future, so I wanted to ask for advice. I appreciate your help! What do these messages mean, and will it influence the laptop's performance in the future? Here's a link to an image showing these messages: http://imgur.com/a/Z7Gwj

I'm producing a DVD for a local TV station arts programming channel. One of the requirements is that "the submitted DVD must have a minimum of 10 seconds of black before the actual video/audio begins." I'm using Windows Movie Maker to produce the DVD. I could not find anything in the Help windows to address this. Using the effects I can "Fade in, from black", but I could not figure out how to make it last 10 seconds. Also, I would like the end to fade out instead of just cutting off.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you!

A:DVD format/production question...

One possible way, its extremely high tech so pay close attention (not!). Open Paint and bucket fill the canvas with the color black. Save and open the photo of black in WMM and drag it to the edit line set to Timeline, then grab the edge of the item and drag it out to 10 seconds or maybe 9.5. Then put your video next to that and use your fade in effect on the video.

I assume there is a fade out to put at the end and you could append a black photo sequence there as well.

Not sure if anyone knows anything about these sort of scanners, but I'll give it a shot...

We currently utilize a M4097D Fujitsu scanner. We are looking into purchasing another scanner as backup/auxilary unit. The one we currently utilize goes through an average of 7500 pages/day (5 days/week). The one we would like to get would be used part time and for department projects on occasion.

The existing one has a flatbed that never gets used, so we'd like to get one without that. Also, it has a IPC4 card I believe, is that something we need? We run at 200dpi when creating batches of PDFs, so I don't believe it would make much of a difference without it.

Anyone have suggestions? Input would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Afaik this is where those expensive CPUs come into play, you can't really do anything to fix this outside of making sure you're not doing something else heavy in the background or buying a better CPU. What CPU is that in your specs, you just posted what appears to be clockspeed. A core-i running at 3GHz is nice but a Celeron at the same speed will definitely be a problem.

Also, 2GB of system RAM is low for an x64 installation, you want to bump it up to 4GB.

I wonder if there's a solution to this issue.....I have many docs/forms (this is mainly literary/author stuff), where I'd like to change "her" to "him." For example, a document might be referring to a female character throughout (not a NAME, just "her.") Doing this as a straight find/replace obviously results in tons of words like "fathim," "eithim," mothim" etc. Is there a neat, clever way to accomplish this?

A:MS Word 2016: can you switch "her" and "him" in a long doc?

The MS-Word 2016 Replace dialog box has a "More >>" button. Clicking it expands the box to show several options including to only find whole words.

You will need to be cautioous if you first try to replace all the "his" with "her" and then replce all the "her" with "his". You'll end up with all "his" Something like first replacing all the "his" with "hhiiss", then replacing all the "her" with "his", and finally replacing all the "hhiiss" with "her" should keep things straight.

It also would not hurt to make a backup copy of the original in case the swap does not go as desired.

Hi there

Hopefully someone can help. I have a good knowledge of MS office's basic functions but no knowledge of the more advanced functions like macros, etc.

I need to design a "Document Production System" where info listed on a excel spreadsheet can be imported onto a template word document and then saved under a unique name or better yet printed to PDF using the same unique name. One line on the excel spreadsheet will equal one document. The excel spreadsheet will be updated once a month with new info under the same fields.

I can almost do this using mail merge however the document becomes when printed to PDF one long repetition of documents rather than separate documents. Is there a way to separate documents in mail merge or will I need to build a macro to do this?

The problem is, I have no idea how to build macros. I am a quick learner though.

New to this forum. Sorry if this is in the wrong folder, subfolder, etc. (but I don't think it is).

I work in the Electrical Contracting industry and was wondering if there is a program/app out there that will create documents (Word .doc's, specifically) by simply selecting a few choices from drop-down menus and miscellaneous text additions. Specifically, for proposals/bids/quotes. If I were to bid on an upcoming project, all I would have to do is open the program, select the client, select the specific contact information at that particular client's location, input the total dollar amount, the project title and location, and maybe a couple additional varying details that I could manually input regarding what the bid is based on, and from there would create a Word document (our proposal) that would be in the form of a formal business letter, complete with our official letterhead, that we could then print out, fax to that client, and file in our system. For example, you could choose the client name, location, and contact info from a drop-down menu. Then you could manually input the job title, location, dollar amount quote, specifications, etc. in location-specific "text boxes" on the page.

This might take some time to set up in the beginning, but would eventually save us a huge amount of time in the end! Right now, we go open up old documents, change all the specific info manually, and save as under the new name...every time! A huge time-c... Read more

He will only be using this at home, and only for producing. He works in Fruity Loops, Sony Acid, and Reason. This won't be hooked up to a mixer or turn tables.


A:Sound card for audio production

Gotta love this one


If he needs more in's / out's, go for Pro 24 or up.

btw, these ones is connected through Firewire.

For those who are experimenting with music production (Cubase, Ableton Live, Sonar, etc), don't forget to turn off sound card enhancements...otherwise you will be engineering a track without being aware that you have those enhancements active.

Personal opinion here...

If you're doing any kind of music production and have -invested- money in professional software (as mentioned above), you have no business using a $2 motherboard audio chip for audio recording & monitoring.

Frequency response is uneven and the noise floor is through the roof, so to speak.

Wal-Mart also has this option at the store and online.

I'm thinking that without gaming ambitions, the new Intel core i3 CPUs might meet your needs with their integrated graphics. These give pretty decent scores in
the Windows Experience Index, something like 4.9 for Areo, and 5.3 for business and gaming graphics. To the best of my knowledge, the matching H55/ H57 Intel chipset motherboards provide Fire Wire input.

You should first subscribe to Newegg's Email list, so you can grab your parts as they become available on sale.

Here is Intel's list of socket LGA1156 CPUs available at Newegg; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...=2010340343 50001157 1051749233&name=LGA 1156

Anyway, for music production puposes.
Running the Recording Program, Sonar 7 or others
Plus all the plugin effects like Compression, Eq, Reverb,
You know, Music production purposes.
In System Properties>Advanced Tab>Performance Settings Advanced Tab> Under Processor Scheduling
Should I adjust for best performance of "Programs" or "Background Services"?
This is what I read on Swee****er.com, a place you buy music gear.

Processor scheduling determines which types of processing are given a higher priority by Vista. The default setting is to devote more to your programs. This seems good on the surface; however, audio drivers run in the background, and NOT as separate programs. In order to get the most performance from AUDIO gear, it is best to set your processor to handle background services first.

Does this hold any truth?
Thanks for the help guys.

PS- Ive already done most of the other tweaking, such as disabling certain services, and other things. This is the only thing that makes me wonder.

A:Music Production Computer-Performance

Hello Dozer, and welcome to the vista forums,

the Background settings on windows OS is more related to desktop Vs Server set-ups but as the statement made on the site is basically true then it may well be that running in Background Process mode may improve performance in your specialised role.

I would have to assume that the statement made is from their experience but as each system is unique the only way to truly know in your case, is to give it a try change the setting and use it for a while and see if there is a perceivable improvement.

The correct way would of course be to create a benchmark for your machine. EG process a particular file both with and without this setting and compare time taken, but I have found that often it is the perceived performance that really matters in these things

These are the best performers so far for me. I was getting varying boot times on my 128 GB 840 PRO with the previous production version, now these are dead on for a consistent 14 second windows boot. YMMV

Thanks Geno! There sure seems like a lot of "known issues" with it though. I'm still on 10.0...something.
