Preferred Solution: What the major difference?

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.)

Those games where more than likely out before your 3450 was. Your 3450 is light years ahead of any core 2 duo.

I'm working to clean this computer out today, except I've ran across some problems. Here's what going on. This computer first off has some crazy partitions. The C drive has 15 GB with 2% free space (used to be zero), and the D drive (where a backup is, this is a HP) has 60 GB with 94% free space. Everything on the computer is on the C drive. Music (theres a ton) programs, everything. The last thing I want to do is a reformat, since right now I have no way of transporting all these files elsewhere. There are a few users logged in, but their mom wont be back for an hour or two, and she has Admin rights with a password I dont know. That means I cant install some programs for now. I have gotten Ad-Aware and Hijack This though. Here's a few pics of the outcome.

This was written by me a week ago. If you want the background story, please skim over it

---------------------------------------------------------About a month ago, I started to randomly recieve these errors which would result in the blue screen of death including error messages such as page_fault_in_nonpaged_area and IRQL_not_less_or_equal. I googled them and found that various factors including faulty drivers or even hardware problems were to blame. But then other problems starting to arise, such as missing dll files messages at startup, etc. It might've been a virus too...after 1000x system checks, no such luck in finding one. It got so bad that I coudln't stay on the desktop long enough to save my files. Even while attempting to reformat, the computer wouldn't last long enough before the blue screen attacks. At the time I thought it was hardware problem. I had opened my case to find a ridiculous amount of dust built up. After a few days the computer wouldn't turn on altogether.

So I ordered a new case, speakers, monitors (I needed an upgrade from my previous ones...this is unrelated to the problem) and a new motherboard. After essentially building a new computer from old parts, I start up only to find the same problems. Okay, so it's a software problem...probably some ******* virus that caused all of these problems. Too confirm this I removed other hardware and replaced it and the same error messages came up at random times....so this is a virus. Or is it? Could it... Read more

A:Major MAJOR problems...virus?

Both of these messages are generated for one of two reasons either a conflicting driver trying to access areas it shouldn't or memory.

After the IRQ not less message there should be the name of a file, which will be a driver, update or remove that device driver and the device if needed (USB 2 devices are notorious for this), if there is no file name your memory is suspect.

Its very unlikely these are the symptoms of any virus, after all they can only proliferate if your machine runs, so its not much use if it keeps keeling over!

Alright, first off, I want to say I'm a complete idiot for attempting this and I wasn't going to do anything illegal with this program.

THIS is my problem. I used an SID changer, called NEWSID. The program changes the SID of the computer. If you cancel while it's changing you risk running into any problems. Now I had to disable UAC for this to work. I know it was stupid but I did it anyways. My computer had to restart so I restarted. Now my "Account" is a guest account, and most of the 100's of desktop icons are missing. My account is a guest account so I don't see half of what I download. I CANNOT SYSTEM RESTORE. I HAVE TO. This is extremely bothering me and I hope to god I didn't completely scew up my OS or something.

Is there a way to force a system restore to a previous day or a few hours back?

Someone please help me I can't stand this much longer.

My sister in law brought me her machine because she has been having alot of problems with it. To make a long story as short as possible the guy who built the machine for her used a pirated version of XP pro. That part is straight now, it is legal. Now for the rest. He used parts I guess he had laying around his garage, 700 mhz athlon, an abit KT7A mobo which has sdram slots only. The thing has 384 meg of sdram. No wonder this thing is a dog. Major rebuild is going to happen today.
I know after I install the new mobo and ram etc. XP is going to scream blue murder. Now, if I boot from cdrom will I be able to choose upgrade from XP pro? If not upgrade how about a repair install? She is a realtor and has stuff on this HDD she needs to keep. I will also be picking up a hard drive for her as this is a 20 gig at 5400 rpm. This is going to be expensive no doubt. I am buying an XP 2400 + and and MSI HT400 mobo. I have the ram here from other projects, well I have over half of it anyhow. I have 384 meg of pc2100 ddr and I plan on picking up another 256 stick.
I know what to do with the hardware, I am just wondering if XP won't let me update install or repair install can I use the new HDD and install XP Pro and then rescue her files from the other HDD?
Well I am off to the supply house. I look forward to the job and also your replies. Fun fun fun.

I'm mainly looking for a really powerful laptop for software development (Microsoft .NET). If it hadn't been for the fact that Visual Studio 2015 has the worst performance ever, it wouldn't have been so hard, but considering that it is, I want maximum power. Now, there are laptops like Dell XPS15 which has nice specs, but we all know that as soon as you start to tax them, you get CPU throttling, insanly loud fans etc. Ie, their small compact chassis simply can not handle the hardware they contain. Because of this, I'm looking at the P50 and the P70, and am curious in how the differ when it comes to ability to handle heat etc. The P70 is a bigger chassi so at least in theory, it should be able to handle heat etc better than the P50. But is the difference 10%, 50% or 200%? Are there any other "structural differences" that matter? Being a consultant, I would prefer not having to lug around a big 17" laptop again with a huge power brick, but if that is what it takes to get good performance without all the problems usually combined with that on smaller laptops, I'm willing to do it.

A:Difference between P50 and P70 with regards to CPU...

I have read some posts from users that experience problem with throttling on the P50-model on heavy workload. This is most likely related to the compact design of the laptop that could cause problem with throttling. I have not noticed this myself, but it could have happened anyway ofcourse. My P50 is mostly used for gaming and schoolwork with more focus on GPU power.

The diffrence is that Windows XP Pro is a 32bit OS and Windows XP PRO x64 is a 64bit OS. Its made for 64bit Processors like AMD64 or the Intel Line of 64bit processors. since there was no support for them Microsoft has to release a 64bit version of WINDOWS to Support the FULL potential of those processors.

A:what's the difference?

just their way of making them their own after they have removed the reference parts fitted by nvidia.

some companies do overclocking so may need to improve cooling hence the dual fan options as well.

but check up, asus made a serious blunder with the 7950 they added a poor heatsink and the part that was suppose to be incontact with the gpu wasn't, they have since released a revision of it that doesn't have that fault but aftermarket gpu's ie all of them may or may not have issues so check reviews on anantech/tom's hardware that sort of thing.

A:The difference between 4bg and 6gb RAM

if you have more ram then your computer will be more fast.many applications and games need high ram. 6 gb would be faster than 4 gb. Computer stores the data needed in ram temporarily so that it can access it more fastly. reading data from the harddisk would be slow.

Can some one tell me the difference between MSNetwork and Internet explorer 5.5. I understand from what I have read that MSN is a easy desktop that compares with AOL. IE 5.5 is an eplorer for more capable individuals Yea

I inderstand that MSN and hotmail does not work very well with IE even though they are supposed to be interfaced. How true is this. I would like to get underway as I am a beginner in computers and completely unsure of where i should be.

I have both icons on my desktop and use hotmail to get my mail, then some times I use outlook express and this does not always pick things up in my mail box? I can see there is a big difference between the two but how much ? Lastly in hotmail I have archived mail. Can someone tell me where this is situated on my machine ?

A:What is the difference between MSN and IE 5.5

MSN is a pay service that connects you to the Internet much like AOL. Internet Explorer is an application that allows you to navigate the WWW once you are connected to a service such as MSN. MSN works with IE to give you access to the World Wide Web. MSN, IE and Hotmail will all work well together since the are all either Microsoft products or owned by Microsoft.

I dont know anything about Hotmail archiving so I cant help you there.

Well I am just thinking of purchasing the "ATI All-In-Wonder 2006 Edition Radeon 9600 256MB DDR VIVO AGP 4X/8X" video card. Now, as you can read in the title, it says 4X/8X. Does that mean that I can either use a 4X interface or an 8X interface?

Previously, I bought a video card for my system and it wouldn't even fit in properly, and it said that it was an 8X interface card. So I suppose I would need a 4X card, right?

One other question. How would I check and see what kind of interface I have, and consequently, what card I would need?

If you could answer my questions as soon as possible that would be great!


A:4X/8X - The Difference

4x and 8x have the same physical slot type, but 2x cards are keyed differently. You might have a 2x slot, if so, you're pretty much out of luck, as there aren't many 2x cards available now, and the ones that are are slow.
8x supports faster speeds than 4x and has a different signaling voltage(0.8v) than 4x(1.5v). Many agp 4x boards support 8x/4x cards.

I use Firefox and I wanted to save a web page so I went to File --> Save Page As... but I noticed under
Save as type: that there were a few options:
Web Page, complete (*.htm;*.html)
Web Page, HTML only (*.htm;*.html)
Text Files (*.txt;*.text)
All Files (*.*)
I was wondering what the difference is between Web Page, complete (*.htm;*.html) and Web Page, HTML only (*.htm;*.html)?
i notice when I save a page as Web Page, complete (*.htm;*.html) that is saves an .htm file and a folder containing all the stuff on the web page, and when I save the same page as Web Page, HTML only (*.htm;*.html), it saves an .htm file like before but doesn't appear to make a folder.
Thank you, and sorry if this is a stupid question...
(EDIT: And sorry for the unspecific Topic Title, I forgot to change it before posting and now I have already posted so I can't edit it...)

A:What is the difference between...

Web page complete saves everything that it takes to make up the web page such as the html, images, etc. and HTML only saves only the HTML page.

Test the connection to your ADSL service provider
Test ADSL Synchronization: PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 segment ping: PASS
Test ATM OAM F5 end-to-end ping: PASS

What is the difference between IDE Ultra ATA100 and IDE Ultra ATA133?

Is what more standard than the other? I am looking to replace a hard drive in a computer I have. But i dont know which one is to what, and i would like to know the difference as well.

I have a Dell Dimension L500EX.


The difference is in the top possible speed of data transfer. However, that top speed is only applicable to the read/write speed of the buffer (i.e., the smallish amount of RAM inside the drive - usually 2MB but as much as 16 on new large drives). For larger (i.e., MOST) file transfers, the difference is meaningless. The actual sustained data transfer rate is constrained by the rotational speed of the drive. That means the practical transfer rate is basically the same for all 7200 RPM drives. For tiny pieces of data that get re-used, the 133 is as much as 1/3 faster. In practice, few people ever not any difference.

I was confused about the drive ribbon we are using now..
the old one that has a thick and all black connector on both sides for drives and mobo, and new one has thin and easily break..and has blue connecter for mobo and black for drives. what is the differences and uses of this two ribbon?
are they can be use to all hard drives?in SATA etc..



A:any difference?

If you look at the ribbon cables closely you will notice the the one with the Blue end has TWICE as many wires as the other. Eighty versus Forty. The 80 wire cable is a requirement for stable operation of the higher speed rated Hard Drives, like the ATA133 models. They can be used with any Parallel ATA drive...NOT a SATA drive.

The extra wires are Grounds that isolate the signal wires more thoroughly.

Whats the difference between the 32 and 64 bit version of the Xp OS..

Also.. What's the difference between the 32 and 64 bit anything.. Games/APplictions etc.

A:Difference between 32 and 64 bit

The biggest difference is that with 32 Bit OS you'll get 3 Gb or less total memory max. (even if you have more installed) While with 64 bit the sky's the limit.

Also, 64 Bit doesn't have a big supply of compatible firewall, since Zonelabs and others refuse to make 64 Bit firewalls :(

As for games, I've noted a slight to pretty decent increase in game performance under WindowsXP 64 Bit.

Hi Gang,

I see IP addresses and I see DNS addresses. What's the difference?


A:What's the Difference Between DNS and IP?

Courtesy of Google...

(Domain Name System) The Domain Name System is the system that translates Internet domain names into IP numbers. A "DNS Server" is a server that performs this kind of translation.

Internet Protocol. IP specifies the format of packets, also called datagrams, and the addressing scheme. Most networks combine IP with a higher- level protocol called Transport Control Protocol (TCP), which establishes a virtual connection between a destination and a source. IP by itself is something like the postal system. It allows you to address a package and drop it in the system, but theres no direct link between you and the recipient. TCP/IP, on the other hand, establishes a connection between two hosts so that they can send messages back and forth for a period of time.

cmd = "schtasks /Run /S servername.mysystem.com /U me /P mypassword /TN task"
oShell.run cmd, 7
