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.)

Welcome to the forum!
Well, it's not that difficult but you need to disassemble a lot of parts. This is fairly easy to do if you closely follow the instructions of Lenovo's Hardware Maintenance Manual, which you can download from here: click me!

Today, the price of gold sits around $1660/fine ounce, maybe Huawei should put their E173 and E220 drivers on wall st. The price per unit would surely surpass that of gold before the close of trade.
On the Vodacom website there are two downloads for the E220, a pc software for vodafone and a VMC update for the dashboard. I downloaded and installed the software for Vodafone onto the laptop, and thereafter dowloaded and updated the E220 with the VMCLite_E220_3_2_1_156_standard program.

Now, since the modem's dashboard could be updated, it would be safe to say that the modem was detected, right?
Well, this is what happens when I open the Vodafone program:

I just started a new job at a startup and they're currently using Ghost for their imaging needs.  No one really likes it but no one has the time to research and learn about an alternative.  I came in, opened my mouth and suggested WIM images, and
now I have to learn everything about creating them, updating them, and managing them.  I also need to learn about Windows Deployment Services.
Where do I start?  Are there resources you can suggest that I begin consulting to get a basic understanding of everything I need to know and grow into someone who can administer the whole mess?

I'm trying to set up pcAnywhere to help out a friend. My friend is on cable as am I. However, I also have a linksys wireless network. I understand that makes a difference in my IP and that I need to Port Forward to the computer in my network I want to use for this connection. I'm having a problem understanding port assignments. I understand that these ports are logical, or software ports only, not actual hardware ports. pcAnywhere says to use 5631 & 5632 as your ports, but I've read that by using these exact ports, because they're so well known, your be open to attacks and you should change them, which I've done. My question is, can you name these ports anything you want, I mean for example could I use 7885 & 7886, or 3444 & 3444? Help appreciated!

Whilst reading through previous posts I came across a soloution to a problem given by Kinbard ie do a non destructive installation of XP instead of a full reformat.

Sounds interesting to keep the computer running smoothly. However when I entered the site and tried to save the info it would not let me save it. The idea being to print off the info and keep it for future reference.

I realise there could be a copyright issue here, if that is the case excuse my ignorance, if not can anyone help.

Can anyone elaborate on their 'NETFLIX experience' as far as quality, streaming video tips, etc.?

I just recently got highspeed internet and have a 1Mbps setup through a provider called Air Pipe in Spokane, WA. It was/is my intent to use the NETFLIX instant-watch feature to view their movies on my bigscreen television utilizing a ROKU player. If the ROKU will not work satisfactorily, I will build another computer using a wireless link from my router, to hard-wire feed the signal to the TV.

Any ideas or tips on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

i just can't decide on a processor for my new board. its a shuttle AK38N, and it supports a really wide range of AMD processors.
My budget is pretty limited, so I've kinda been hoping that I'll happen upon Newegg.com's refurbished processors before they are depleted... but the time window i have for that is about 3 minutes every 3 days or so, seriously.
I feel like I don't know enough about amd's processors. what do the different core names mean? like palomino and thoroughbred. and what kind of effect does the multiplier and/or fsb have on how easy it is to overclock?

p.s.-please dont suggest a duron processor, i just wont do it.

I would like to expand my knowledge to be able to completely understand networking. I have learned how to do the cabling. I don't know how to install a signal booster though. I am sure there are lots of other things involved also. What would be the best way to gain knowledge without getting a degree and without spending a fortune? I don't ever plan to give up my full time job. I would like to expand my business though and I am finding networking very interesting. I learn much better by hands on than I do by hitting the books. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I was shopping for a new 80 connector IDE cable the other day. They are usually grey. But I found one that was yellow and it was a dollar more. Since the reason I was there was to buy a replacement for a cable that failed for no apparant reason, I wondered if the reason why this yellow cable was a dollar more might be because it might be of higher quality.

Asked the salesperson and he didn't know. Acted like he'd never seen that kind of cable before.

Took the new yellow cable home and while taking it out of the package, I noticed that it was labeled as being a "UDMA IDE" cable, while the old, grey cable was called a "ATA 100" cable.

Now I can't decide which one is better and/or which one I need. I always thought that there was a "heirarchy" of data transfer "protocols" with UDMA being slower than ATA. But the UDMA cable costs more. Is it better ?

Could someone please tell me (in laymans's terms) what the difference is between "ATA" (and it's subcatagories 33, 66 and 100) and "UDMA" (and it's subcatagories) ? What do these words mean, which is better/faster and what does all of this mean to me the aspiring "Power User" and specifically, what does it mean about which cable I need?
Thanks in advance,

I have an Epson C62...inexpensive printer but works very well for us...ran out of black ink and tried refilling cartridge with a dollar bottle of printer ink..all went well...got it filled and re taped. Now, message tells me that I'm out of ink.

I need educating before I go ahead with new purchase of ink or cartridges, or non Epson product.

TEll me what the "chip" is doing on the factory cartridge.
How does non epson product subvert this factory cartridge if a "chip" is involved with it's operation?
What is it that occured between last use of black ink cartridge, and the refilling of same when it ceased to work?
How worthwhile are the hundreds replacement products being advertised on internet sites, auctions, etc.?

Perfect quality prints is not my abjective..I use printer for black and white draft documents only....what's your best advice.\?



A:printer cartridge education

It would appear from my research that the printer manufacturer's do not want you to be able to refill these cartridges. This is how they make money by almost giving the printers away. The chips that they are beginning to put into the cartridges have an expiration date. It appears some are able to be refilled until they pass the 'estimated' expiration date that has been preset on them.

I was in a Walmart recently where one of the 'disposable' printers were on sale for $39.99 and that included the black and color cartridge........both together selling for more than the printer price......almost better to buy the printer for the cartridges and throw the printer away..........sad, but true

Hi, we just bought some computers off of ebay that have windows XP professional installed on them. They are PIII, 1.13 ghz. We bought them for our kids to do their kid games and education programs on them. But we have tried to install several different ones and none of them will play so far. Some of them seem to install correctly but then when we try to run them, they just turn off or get stuck. All of these worked on our other computers with windows 98. Can you tell us if there is something we can do to make them work? I would really appreciate any help you can give us. Thanks!! Deanna

About the only thing you can try is what is called compatability mode. If you right click on the link to the program and select properties, you can select a tab called compatability. check the "run this program in..." box and select win98 then ok and try to run the program

I'm interested in the microcoputer specialist area and have taken tests that show I may do well in programming. The questions I have are these...
1. Where is a good place to go to get the training...a 2 year tech college or a private tech school? Does it matter to potential employers as long as you have the certification?
2. There are many private tech schools. How can I tell the good from the bad. If I'm gonna plunk down 10K, I'd like to know I'm getting the best bang for my buck.

I will/might be starting a networking course; I have been invited for the day to the provider for this course to spend the day with students who are two weeks off finishing the current one that is running, just to see if it is what I want.

Of course I have a list of units contained in this course, but descriptions are very brief and not 100% sure if it covers all that I need to know.

In a previous course it was a pretty general IT course and only four units covered networking.

What I wanted to know is what sort of questions I need to ask and what areas in networking should be covered that some diploma’s and courses should be covering, I just want to make sure that I am doing the right one for me.

I have worked in IT departments but have a very broad but basic knowledge, (compared to a lot of people), e.g. tech support type of stuff and hardware/software knowledge, building computers, setting up networking for computers and printers etc etc all general stuff.

The course covers building an intranet, Installing and configuring a network, Installing software, Install and maintain a server, Monitor and administer network security, Manage resolution of system faults on a live system, installing hardware to a network.

I have of course done things included in those units but not to any great level, is there other areas I should be asking about, of course there are units included that are not networking pacifically, which I have not included in that list, but the list above is... Read more

Hi Everyone,
I'm not sure this is the right place for this thread but I've got myself an issue that I hope someone here could guide me to the right place(s). I'd like to infect a virtual machine with DNS Unlocker and some other newer infections that are currently going around for the past year or so that I've seen in the forums here. I've already created a virtual machine and started getting it infected but the primary one I want to get for the moment is DNS Unlocker and I can't seem to find either an installer directly for it or any information for anything that installs it in the background.
The reason i want to do this is because at my shop we have seen an increased amount of these infections in the last week and in some of those cases the younger inexperienced technicians have resorted to doing OS wipe and reloads rather than fixing the actual issue. This is a behavior I want to stop or at least limit when possible and train them all properly for cleaning these infections going forward.
If anyone could point out any programs they installed that had DNS Unlocker or any other stubborn infections it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for any help

How can I automate this, or at least make it easier? Is there a program for it?

I work for an adult literacy group.
A church group recently gave refurbished computers to students in our classes. Some of these students are still learning their abc's; some are nearly ready to study for the GED.

The machines have Win98 or WinME and MS Works. That's all. Hard drives are usually small - about 2 gig. No tech support comes with the machines - the student has to find a friend to help - sometimes even to learn to use the mouse!

I have downloaded a lot of educational freeware. I have programs that will run from a cd, run if moved to the hard drive (because they write data), and do all the varieties of "install" that freeware does. I sorted them into directories such as spelling, math, geography, etc., then burned them onto a data cd. Nothing is still zipped.

I was able to install most of the 50+ freeware programs onto one student's machine myself. It took hours, mostly from having to make and sort shortcuts to the applications, and clean up temp files and such. (The people who help these students install what they need will qualify for sainthood.) Some of the programs need a speech engine, VB runtime, PowerPoint viewer,etc.

I want to be able to run as many of these things from a cd as possible - to save hard drive space. I want all the programs to have shortcuts in folders on the program list on the start button. I want to write a step-by-step ReadMe that ... Read more

I have a w520 with a Quadro 1000M that I purchased primarily due to its fast processor and nice screen. I am not running any graphically intense programs (i.e., no CAD, photoshop, etc.).   Can someone help me understand if, and how, I should be using the Quadro for the more pedestrian computing applications I use (MS Office, browsers, etc.)? I have the NVidia Control Panel (v345.20) and I understand that I can assign which graphics processor to use for each program...but I've got no idea what the implications are for making these decisions, as opposed to letting it decide for itself.  Is there any reason that I shouldn't assign everything to the hot-shot graphics processor? Does there exist some guide you can refer me to...or a quick explanation you can give?  Part of the reason I'm asking is that despite the presence of two SSDs and a boatload of memory (24GB), my machine is frequently sluggish. Can making better use of the graphics processor help me optimize my system? I do have a lot of programs installed and frequently have a number of them open concurrently, so I undertand there are lots of potentail reasons my system gets bogged down that have nothing to do with graphics...but can making better use of the graphics processor help me at all?  Any assistance is appreciated.

Hello guys,I have a HP Spectre x360 convertible (SSD 256 GB, RAM 8 GB, i5) running Windows 10 Home.I?ve got a license (through my university) to install Windows 10 Education.I'm wondering if it?s a good idea to make the upgrade to ?win 10 Education?on my HP notebook; and I'd like to ask for advice to this forum. Do you recommend this upgrade ?Should the HP Spectre work fine or even better after this upgrade? Do you know if there might be any drawback in upgrading to win 10 Education?  like, is it more PC resource consuming? or should I expect any driver compatibility issue? Thanks,

Previously, my laptop (ThinkPad X140e) got Win 10 Pro (Ver 1511), upgrading from OEM Win 8 Pro. All was well then. I installed a flavor of Linux after that to see how it goes, and I didn't like it after all. I created a new Win10 Installation media, using Windows Media Creation Tool and a USB memory stick. Little did I know about the new change applied from ver.1607 (Windows 10 editions for education customers), the new installation of Win 10 activated as Windows 10 Pro Education. I suppose my ThinkPad X140e was given Education OEM license for some reason, even though it was bought independently. Win 10 Pro Education seems mostly identical to vanilla Win 10 Pro that I know of. However, I see some '* Some settings are managed by your organization' messages in some of the Settings menus, and I really don't like it. Is there any way for me to get Windows 10 Pro, instead of Windows 10 Pro Education? This Link (Upgrade Windows 10 Pro to Pro Education from Windows Store for Business) has a section about reverting process; I don't think it applies to my case.Any advice?

I have a set up two Windows 10 Education Edition laptops. I would like to configure them both with the same settings/permissions.

How can a I make a "User Group" and add policies to it.

For example: Have a "User Group" called "Kids" and then be allowed to configure the windows settings, deploy them to a different printer ect.

I can load lusrmgr.msc and add a Group called "Kids" but if I go into mmc.exe and add the Group Policy Object, I have no option to pick "Kids"

Any suggestions.

My laptop is a msi gp60 leapord.

My hard drive recently broke on this laptop, so i replaced it and freshly installed a new OS. An IT tech support installed the new OS, but while he was installing it, I noticed he switched to Legacy mode in the bios.

Now the problem is, when I go back to UEFI in the bios, my computer boots with this message:

Searching for media presence...
Media present...
Start with IPV4. (along those lines)

And it won't do anything after that. So basically I can only boot with Legacy. And Legacy is very slow when trying to resume windows and that really bothers me.

Also, my computer originally came with Windows 8.1.

Is there any way to get my computer to boot in UEFI?

Frequently, people use the phrase "common sense" when talking about computer security issues. "common sense" dictates one shouldn't visit websites advertised or otherwise made known to be malicious or avenues for distributing malware. "common sense" dictates one shouldn't necessarily believe everything received via e-mail, yet many people recirculate messages with the same hoaxes well documented on Snopes. Are they not using "common sense" or do they simply "don't know"?

Does "common sense" really factor in with computer security or is it more of matter of education? A number of computer users simply don't know what's up with viruses, malware, firewalls, anti-this and anti-that. Some people want to use their computer as a tool and aren't interested in becoming a "security expert" or anything, nor should they have to be IMO.

So how does using "common sense" factor in with computer security vs "education"? if someone simply doesn't know, does that mean they aren't using "common sense"?


A:Computer Security: a matter of common sense, education, or both?

We have purchased 240 Probook 650 g2 over the summer nad have distributed them to our faculty and staff.  To date we have 16 different laptop all with the same issue.  They all give an error no audio playback device found.  Device manager still shows the conextant ISST sound card installed and device is running properly.  we have tried every solution we could find including turning off enhancement etc.  My Boss is to the point of returning all 240 laptops as being bad and purchase new ones from another vendor.  The support staff doesn't have time to keep uninstalling and re-installing the sound drivers.

Hi all,

I've had a lot of extremely helpful advice and criticism from people about this website by posting on forums sites like this one and asking for comments, so i thought i'd start my stay here with this one.

It's my first website, so be kind. It's also incomplete, but will be complete soon, for the current definition of "complete." This is the second revision, based on feedback from sharkyforums, anandtech, and a couple of others.

Let me know what you think, especially about the colours, layout, organisation, etc...
