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.)

Hello,

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?

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.

Hey All,

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!

Manic
 

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.

What is the difference , if any, between a DVD+RW/+R; 40 X CD-ROM and a DVD+RW/CD-RW: 40 X CD-ROM. Are they exactly the same , or are they different. Do you still get two drives, one for recording music CDs and DVD's and a CD-ROM drive, or is one less than the other? I know what RW means, but one of these drives only says +R.

Welcome to the forum Nonybd,

This will answer the basic differences between 32 and 64 bit Vista.

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/41531554-d5ef-4f2c-8fb9-149bdc5c8a701033.mspx

64 bit Vista will give you more RAM support and some performance increases if you have current 64 bit drivers for all of you devices.

Hope this helps,

Actually the difference between the 32bit and 64bit is the processing capability. The 64bit can process the data twice faster than 32bit, theoretically. But the speed processing between the 32bit and 64bit nowadays are almost same, and even there is a lot of issues occur with the 64bit since there is a lot of bugs and so on.

I'm looking to get a new OS w/new build. What is/are the difference's between upgrade, OEM and just English DVD? The prices are as follows; upgrade = $219, OEM = $199, English DVD = $319 and are from Tiger direct. This is for the Ultimate OS and some prices are reflecting sales and rebates.

I understand the upgrade is overlaying new OS over the old OS but the other two confuse me. So with a new build what would be best?

A:OS - what are the difference's

Windows 7 would be best.

OEM is supposed to be used on a pc that is sold on. It must remain on that pc.

Upgrade is supposed to be used on a pc that already has a qualifying version of Windows installed. It is not necesaary to perform an in -place install - you can clean install.

The Full Retail version requires no qualifying version , and can be moved to a different pc, but must be removed form the first if you do.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

I currently have 1GB (2x512 MB) DDR2 PC-5300 DUAL CHANNEL Memory + 1GB DDR2 PC-5300 Memory. Would adding another 1GB ram making it 3GB ram make any difference? Would speeds increase even more?

P.S. I am using Windows XP PRO.

Thanks!

I didn't see 1.3 maybe that is under 1.0

Opening all pages on different tabs, there are minor differences
Might be best left for you to cross between them and check

A 32 bit processor is faster than a 64 bit processor, 64 bit processors are very commonly used that you can find it easily in any home pc but the main difference is the hardware you are having on your machine. For 32 bits there isn’t any need of any wide main bus to carry 32 bits at a time but for 64 bits its must that you should have a wider bus to carry 64bits.

The main difference between a 32 bit and 64 is that 32 bit system has 4gb(gigabytes) of space for addressing means that the 32 bit system has a limit of 4GB RAM to process data where as the 64 bit operating system has 2^64 bits of space to address and supports 16 hexabytes of RAM to process data.

A person who does not care about the category will find 64 bit more beneficial than 32 bit because he can use 64 bit OS with 32 bit Os and softwares. If we compare 64 bit with 32 bit OS, 64 bit is faster and performs more upgraded silicon processes and have more no of transistors which proves it to be more advantageous than 32 bit.

Now most of the software companies are developing their softwares in accordance to the 64 bit environment, it’s really hard for the consumers to run a 64 bit application in 32 bit environment, in this case they have to upgrade their hardware’s such as RAM which is also a big issue because most of the computer users have less than 1Gb in their systems.

So instead of changing your hardware day by day I would recommend d32 bit OS which is more user friendly and enables i... Read more

What is the difference when you ping a server and get:

C:\>ping GCARS04N

Pinging GCARS04N.ca.nortel.com [47.135.108.79] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 47.135.255.204: TTL expired in transit.
Reply from 47.135.255.204: TTL expired in transit.

Ping statistics for 47.135.108.79:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

and

PING "SERVER NAME"
REQUEST TIME OUT
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)

I do notice 1 thing and that is on the

Request time out you get:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)

AND

Reply from 47.135.255.204: TTL expired in transit.

You get

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss)
So it gets received with 0 % loss but does anyone know more on this or a link I can read up on ??

Try this out -

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...s/2000/server/reskit/en-us/w2000Msgs/1304.asp

Error Message:
TTL expired in transit.

Explanation:
The TTL value determines the maximum amount of time an IP packet may live in the network without reaching its destination. It is effectively a bound on the number of routers an IP packet may pass through before being discarded. This message indicates that the TTL expired in transit.

User Action:
Increase the TTL value using the -i parameter with the ping command.

hi ppl, lke i said before i sorted out the modem, but
when i'm online sometimes it will just disconnect from the internet.
i tryed to troubleshoot the problem using the router,
this was what it said:

Test the connection to your local network
Test your Ethernet Connection: PASS


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
Test ATM OAM F4 segment ping: FAIL

Test the connection to your Internet service provider
Test PPP server connection: PASS
Test authentication with ISP: PASS
Test the assigned IP address: PASS
Ping default gateway: PASS

does the failed thing make a difference?

Been seeing those gigabit routers in the store and I'm wondering how much of a difference there is in one of those as opposed to a cheaper 10/100 router. I'm not an online gamer (I've read that is where the biggest improvement is), I don't even require a speedbooster model in my home.
 

A:What's the difference?

None for 99% of the home users. The only benefit is some added speed in local file sharing, it will make no difference in your Internet connection speed.

I'm reading around on Vista and gather that there are 32 and 64-bit versions.

What's the difference ? Does it apply to hardware ?

I have an Opteron 165, can I use 64-bit ?

Is one better than another ?

Do certain programs only run on 32-bit ?

Thanks in advance,

Girdleman

A:What's the Difference: 32-bit vs. 64-bit ??

Quote:




By using 32 bits your processor can represent numbers from 0 to 4,294,967,295 while a 64-bit machine can represent numbers from 0 to 18,446,744,073,709,551,615. Obviously this means your computer can do math with larger numbers, and be more efficient with smaller numbers.





Quote:




The true benefits of this set up don?t come from the amount of bits, but by the improved structure of the 64 bit vs 32 bit processor's older structure.





Quote:




You really need about 4 GB of RAM to take full advantage of the capabilities offered by a 64-bit processor, while most PC owners have less than 1 GB under their computer?s hood.




From what i can see your processor is 64bit capable

At the moment 64 bit is only starting to emerge but will eventually surpass 32 bit when programs take full advantage of 64 bit technology

From what i have seen most stuff will run on a 64 bit CPU with a few exceptions

Ohh there is also the hassle of trying to get drivers for some stuff as well with 64bit, with new stuff it is not so bad but you may come across some hassle with older things
