Q: Solved: SCSI Ultra II to Ultra III Adapter

I have a SCSI PCI controller that is ultra 2 and I have found a 36.4GB SCSI hd from HP that is ultra 3. Will the adapter slow the transfer rate of the ultra 3. If so to what degree the controller I have has a sdram slot on it with a 16 MB stick in it . Will it still work If I put a 128MB stick in it?

Hi all =). I'm getting a computer made with a 450w power supply. I'm getting a Geforce 6800 Ultra at least, but the company recommends a 480w supply for this card. I've heard of people having problems with their power supply not being able to cope with this card, but I don't know exactly at what power their power supplies ran. Will I run into any problems with the power supply I'm getting, or should I upgrade to 480w or more?

Don't know if you need this information also, but I think this may also effect my power supply:

Asus K8V SE Deluxe Motherboard
Athlon 64 3400+
1.5 GB pc3200 DDR Ram
120 GB HDD

Also heard that AMD uses less power than Intel or something...sooo I was thinking that perhaps my graphics card will not be affected as much because of this...but dunno. Help would be greatly appreciated =D.
 

A:Regarding Geforce 6800 Ultra, Ultra Extreme, or Asus v9999 Ultra Deluxe

One, Use a title once.

Two, nope nVIDIA GeForce 6800 families or newer REQUIRES 480w of psu minimum, PERIOD. it is not matter how much watts amd or intel uses, what you means that you must have 480w or higher to have GF 6800 working properly.

Recommendation, get ATI Radeon 9600XT or 9800XT, they merely used up less than 350w.

Lucan

You will get better games or things out of ATI instead of nVIDIA due to power usages

I have 3 SCSI Ultra 2 drives laying around and I have decided I want to get a external case and try and create a raid array with these drives to run on my P-4 running Windows XP. I have an Adaptec 2940U2W controller but I am not sure it works or not. I am new to SCSI technology so any help getting started with this would be great. Thanks. I would rather go with SATA but these 3 drives are FREE.
 

A:SCSI 68 Pin Ultra 2 drives

Nothing too complicated with it. You just have to take care when setting the jumpers (if any) on the dirves to make sure the IDs are right and the terminations OK. Reading the manual of the SCSI controller wouldn't hurt either.

Have a read about almost everything a sane person would want to know about SCSI (look in the end for useful info on cabling and configuration): http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/if/scsi/index.htm

I looked at the product specs and seems that your controller doesn't have RAID so you have to do it by software (bad news for you, esp. with Windows).

Hi guys, back after a few months away from this great site/forum.

I have a question regarding the CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard I was searching all over the web but can't seem to find out if this motherboard will support the new AMD 64 X2(dual core) 939 CPU?

If anyone here can help me out, I'd be grateful. Thanks.
 

A:CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Most nForce4 based motherboards support such CPUs but not all of them do so out-of-the-box. Make sure to have a motherboard from the latest production batch. If not, it might be handy to have a single-core to flash the BIOS in case it doesn't want to power up with the dual-core one.

My work laptop is a T460 Ultrabook Thinkpad. I have the compatible docking station. It's a pain in the backside just to get the silly thing to connect to another display while the lid is open ... but this thing WILL NOT do something that countless laptops have been able to do for over a decade: Connect to two monitors at the same time while on a docking station with the laptop lid closed -- ThinkPad Pro docking station in case it matters.. I'm successfully connecting to one monitor via the DiplayPort on the docking station. No matter what I try, I can't get another monitor to connect.  Here's what I've already tried: 1. Updated Chipset.2. Updated Bios.3. Updated Graphics Card Driver. 4. I've connected the second monitor to the DVI port on the docking station. 5. I've connected the second monitor to the laptop HDMI port. 6. I've tried multiple cables.7. Verified that the same setup works just fine on an older Lenovo laptop and older docking station.  And my amazing not-so-ultra laptop still gives me no option to connect to another monitor. When I go into the Intel Control Panel, there is nothing there even suggesting that Multiple Diplays are possible. I'm just not believing that Lenovo built a high end laptop that can't connect to two monitors at the same time while on a compatible docking station with the laptop lid closed. There's got to be a solution for this.

I'm trying to install Windows 2000 on a 20GB hard drive that is connected to a Maxtor Ultra ATA/100 PCI Adapter Card in a Compaq DeskPro 2000 6233MMX.

Following Maxtor's directions, I downloaded atadrvr.exe from their website and created a floppy disk with drivers that will be needed during installation.

I booted to the Windows 2000 Professional CD. As directed by Maxtor, during setup I hit F6 to specify additional drivers. One of the drivers available was for the Maxtor ATA/100 Windows 2000 driver. I selected this and got the following response:

"File \Windows2000\Ultra.sys caused an unexpected error (1038) at line 1211 in D:\nt\private\ntos\boot\setup\oemdisk.c"

Which of these two do you reccomend?

TNX!
 

A:Gigabyte nf4 Ultra or DFI nf4 Ultra

I'm pretty much building the same PC you are. I still need to decide on the videocard, either the 6600Gt or x700pro.

For the motherboard, I've decided to go with DFI. I haven't seen reviews comparing both, but they seem pretty much to deliver the same performances. I like the design of the DFI better, but the main thing that made me choose the DFI was the number of PCI-e slots. The gigabyte model has only 2 PCI-e 1x slots and 1 16x slot, DFI offers 1 1x slot, 1 4x slot and 2 16x slots. So I should be able to use PCI-e parts more easily in the next few years.

Feature wise, gigabyte offers 8 SATA ports(4 on 3.0Gb/s) while DFI has 4 on 3.0Gb/s only. Both seem to offer 10 USB ports and 2 lan connector.

There's not much difference specs wise, it pretty much comes down to who you trust more and price wise.

Then get the latest version of 6 from their website

That depends on the purpose of the disc. If you are making a backup of the AVI or want to play them on another computer then you have it right. Some newer standalone DVD players may also be able to read and play AVI files ona data DVD.

If you want to make a Video DVD out of the AVI files that will play on most new and older standalone DVD players, then you need to use the Nero Vision CD/DVD component of Nero to author (convert video file formats, add menus) and burn the disc.

Hey guys

I am having a problem with a PCI control card which I purchased a few years ago. I had purchased a third hard drive but the PCI control card created problems and I uninstalled it. I was a real newbie then (having using Apple's computers for 20 years) but now I would like to use the card.

Basically, it disables my BIOS and the boot is excessively long.

The box’s description of it is “Cicero Ultra DMA 100 control card” The device manager describes it as “CMD PCI-0649 Ultra DMA IDE Controller”.

The manual states “This Ultra DMA 100 control card is equipped with a sophisticate controller of CMD 0649.” On the net, Cicero appears to have been taken over by CMD.

My motherboard controller is described as an “Intel 82801BA Ultra ATA Controller”, so the two should be compatible as they both use DMA 100 technology.

My method of installation was to first
A) Physically install the card. Then boot and go into the device manager and have it search
A1) “Windows update” and
A2) the cd disk that came with the card.
There wasn’t a better match.
B) Reboot and install a Sony DVD to the primary (Master) IDE port of the card on cable select.

Normally, when I want to access the BIOS, my computer smoothly enters it. With the card, it displays information about the card then states that my primary drive is my Sony DVD and later that it cannot find my two h... Read more

A:Solved: PCI Ultra DMA 100 control card

I should have read the sticky “Please read before posting” and given more details.

1) My power supply is 480 watts by Mutant Mods (StarTech.com)

2) The computer is 8 years old, and was state of the art costing $2,800.00 at the time.

3) It was assembled by a well known Canadian company called MDG, which had received numerous awards for its products at the time I bought it. It came with Windows Me.

4) I have
4a) 40 gig hard drive (Samsung SV4084H) on the primary master from the motherboard.
4b) I/O Magic writable DVD on the primary slave from the motherboard. I don’t have the model but would have to remove it from the computer to get it.
4c) 60 gig hard drive (Western Digital WDC WD600BB-75AA0) on the secondary master from the motherboard.
4d) Sony writable DVD on the primary master from the PCI card. Again, I don’t have the model, but would have to remove it from the computer to get it.

The software on the CD for the PCI does not include software for XP

I have 5 PCI slots:
Slot 1: empty
Slot 2: Ultra DMA 100 control card
Slot 3: NEC USB Hub 2.0. card
Slot 4: Crystal SoundFusion CS4281 WDM Audio card
Slot 5: Modem to my cable company

I tried disconnecting the Sony DVD from the PCI card and found the BIOS was still disabled prior to my entering it.

I know little about PCI’s but I do find it strange that the Ultra DMA 100 control card is clobbering my BIOS.

Would it have something to do with the PCI configuration in the BIOS?

Okay, so you all know what lag spikes are. And generally they involve online play.
But lately, mine are occurring offline!
It's annoying, and happens about every minute. It will lag like mad for around 7 seconds or so, and then immediately afterwords it will go super fast for about 2 seconds, as if it's trying to catch up.

All my graphic settings are set to high, but it runs 100% beautifully besides the lag spikes, so I don't think graphic settings are the issue.
I haven't tried my other games lately, but it has been happening on Assassin's Creed and LOTR: Conquest.

Also, this only started to occur after I got a new motherboard installed. And it's a billion times better than my old motherboard, so I'm a bit confused.

Like I said, it runs like a god when it's not having that odd lag spike. I have everything on high on all my games and besides the spike, it ALL runs great.

When I check the performance the blue ray takes up 100% percent of the CPU usuage whereas the DVD's take up 20% percent (I assume that's because Purevideo is working). I have an Nvidia 9500 GT installed with the latest driver and still the problems. Also when I use the BD-Advisor it has green lights all across the board (CPU, RAM, Graphics Card, Graphics card driver etc) all pass for basic Blue Ray playback except for when it comes to advanced playback it says I don't have Hardware Dual Video Encoding for H.264, Mpeg 2 and VC-1. So is this just the fact that my graphics driver doesn't have that stuff in this driver version. I mean reading on the box and website about the Nvidia 9500 GT it says it supports H.264, Mpeg 2 and VC-1. Also which program do I use to run the PowerDVD? Do I use the Power DVD settings or do I use the Nvidia settings? Here are my system specs.

Compaq Presario Intel Celeron D 3.46GHz
Windows Vista Basic SP2
2GB Ram
120GB Hard Drive
Nvidia BFG GeForce 9500 GT 1GB PCI-E 2.0 Driver, 196.21
BFG 450 Watt Power Supply
Samsung p2250 Monitor digital driver
16X BD-ROM LG Ultra BLue
Alhena 5 Motherboard
 

A:Solved: PowerDVD 9 Ultra problems.

Just to add some details I didn't immediately go out and buy a ton of blue rays after I bought the BD-Rom. I bought one Blue Ray disc The Dark Knight which is totally choppy. But what is weird is it's special features are also on Blue Ray and they play perfectly fine with no problems. Could all of my problems just be a bad Blue Ray disc?

I just picked up a ‘ultra media dashboard” it’s looks like a real nice piece but, the card readers work fine so far but the usb ports don’t work at all . I have them run to the usb ports on the back of the case using the adapters supplied with the kit , I have run them to the MB (microstar ms-6570e) with no luck . has anyone seen this problem before and if they did how was it fixed ? thank you much
 

A:Solved: ultra media dashboard

I google around on the multi media dashboard and the reviews are about 5-1 bad with most problems related to the usb not working or when it did work the device wouldn't get enough power...return it and try something else!

I downloaded Mandrake Linux ISO and since I don't often burn an ISO to a disk, I referred to Nero's Help file. You need read no further than step two below to address this question. Here's what it says:
Burning the image file
This is a step-by-step guide to burning a previously created image file using Nero:
1.) Select the command Choose Recorder from the Recorder menu and select the recorder installed (not the image recorder) and confirm the selection using OK.
2.) From the File menu select the Write CD Image command.
3.) A dialog box will open and you can select the image file you would like to burn. Nero currently supports NRG, ISO and CUE-Sheet formats. Select the desired file and click on the Open button. The Write CD dialog box will then open – the procedure is the same as for producing a new compilation but the Burn tab is now in front.
4.) Now check all settings on this and other tabs one more time and amend where necessary.
5.) Confirm your selection by clicking on the Burn button. Nero now carries out all the necessary stages as defined. A status window will appear showing the stages implemented and informing you how the burn process is progressing. As soon as Nero has finished the write process, a window will appear with a result message such as "Burn process 24x (3600 KBs) successful".
6.) Click on the OK button to close the dialog box. The CD is then ejected. The messages shown can either be saved, printed or discarded. Close the w... Read more

TigerDirect offered a 3.5 inch Seagate 250GB hard drive and an ULTRA USB enclosure at a pretty good price, and I bought them to make an external hard drive. The Seagate drive came with absolutely nothing but the static-resistant envelope. The Ultra enclosure came with a 'User Manual' that added up to 'open the box, put in the drive, close the box'. There were some drawings of the enclosure, but none that showed any connections or cables. The manual said nothing at all about jumper settings or how to connect the cables. I e-mailed the Ultra 'support' and asked for additional information.
The response was "Unforunately thats al the instruction s that we have.- Miguel"(sic).
At Seagate, I was told:
"The use of Third Party Enclosure's with Seagate drives can be problematic. The Seagate Technical Support staff has noted that configuring an internal hard drive for "single-master" results in a better chance of it working in a third party drive enclosure but that there are other issues.
Due to special requirements and characteristics of these enclosures Seagate is not able to assist in troubleshooting issues with these devices, for troubleshooting in this special environment contacting the enclosure manufacturer is recommended."
TigerDirect says technical support is provided by the manufacturer.
The cables are no great problem, because they are sort of obvious, but the drive jumper apparently is configured as 'C... Read more

I currently have Ultra VNC, version 1.1.0.2 installed on my two home PCs. I can not get
file transfer to work. I enabled different settings in services, no change. Did a Google search and found versions 1.04 and 1.05. Will one of these versions enable file transfer?

Thanks in advance

A:Solved: Can not get Ultra VNC to file transfer

XP or Vista? 1.0.5 is stable and for Vista so that might work there. 1.0.4 is more of a RC version, skip it. I use 1.0.2 on XP and file transfer works fine. I connect by local I.P. (all within the same network), I'm using the file transfer icon on the top of the VNC Viewer screen and I have the windows firewall (no other firewalls) open for both the viewer and server.

Hey Guys and Gals I’m desperate for some logical assistance and I know the people frequenting this site carry great knowledge. I bow to you and am humbled by your greatness. I have recently installed a new LG GGC-H20L. After fighting with Cyberlink for a week I have removed all Cyberlink S/W please do not go there I already know more about Cyberlink than Cyberlink Tech support and refuse to have in my life.
Tonight I have downloaded a full legal version of Nero 8 Ultra with HD. This app should play in HD (BD & HD) and produce Dolby Digital signal to my audio device. I know the hardware is cool because I can use the WIN-DVD4 with the new hardware to play older non HD DVD and the digital decoding light on my receiver lights up, as it has for years when playing digital audio, regardless of the source. The receiver and the PC have been linked for at least 3 years with no prior issues.
The only current issue is I can not get full audio sound while watching a DVD in Nero ShowTime, I can get a faint audio track on some scene and also I get some back ground audio and music track when they are present but that is all and no digital decoding light from receiver. Below are some specs on my "Black Box” If you could lend a hand I would be grateful and try to find a way to repay you for your expertise.
I have gone back to the audio hardware that come on the MB (DFI 590 SLI) on S/PDIF. Uses Realtech HD.
I also have audiophile card but not useing it while researching this issue.... Read more

I have been searching the web, as well as these forums for help connecting Ultra VNC over the net, and can not seem to find the answer to my questions. Actually, I may have found it multiple times, but I am not computer literate enough to have figured it out. If you respond, please give me step by step instructions, not something like: Look in your registry keys and change the appropriate ones to point to the DNS server on the LAN side of China.

I have 3 machines that I have installed both the Ultra VNC server and client, 1 XP desktop, 1 XP laptop and 1 Vista Laptop. I am running a Linksys WRT54G v8 running DD-WRT v24-sp2. As I have comcast high speed internet I have set up an account on dyndns. I have also set up static LAN address for each of the 3 computers hooked to the router. For each of the computers I have set up 3 port forwards example:
5500 -> 198.161.1.100:5500
5800 -> 198.161.1.100:5800
5900 -> 198.161.1.100:5900

5501 -> 198.161.1.101:5500
5801 -> 198.161.1.101:5800
5901 -> 198.161.1.101:5900

5502 -> 198.161.1.102:5500
5802 -> 198.161.1.102:5800
5902 -> 198.161.1.102:5900

I have configured my anti-virus, as well as the windows firewall correctly at least I presume so because.....

Using any client and any server from the 3 computers, I can connect to another computer on the LAN, everything works.

Here is my problem: When I try to use the ultra VNC over the net, I get the following error: Failed to Connect to Server!

Hi,

I just have recently changed the CPU (Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz) heatsink to Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme with a Noctua NF-P12 120mm. The memory is 2x2 Patriot Viper 1333 MHz DDR3 with a 7-7-7-20 timing. I have a hightower chassi (Mozart Tx) by Thermaltake.

Now I have monitored the CPU temperature and it has been between 47 C and 52 C. I am definately not satisfied and was expecting the CPU temp. to be well below 40 C. I only applied a size of a rice corn of Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound on the CPU and spreaded evenly.

Althogh, according to the Theemalright Ultra-120 Extreme manual I was supposed to apply thermal compound on the heatsink as well but I only applied Arctic Silver 5 on the CPU and thought that would do it.

Until today....
I took the heatsink off and removed the one week old thermal compound and applied thermal compound both on the heatsink and CPU, this time. I was hoping that the temperature would dropp but it still remains almost the same ranges between 44 C - 52 C. (Comparing with when I only applied thermal compound on the CPU the first time).

Now I do have a big tower with a great airflow inside of the chassi with two 120 mm chassi fans in the front and three 120 mm fans in the back. One of the fans that is in front of the chassi and sucks in air into the chassi is facing towords the heatsink fan but there is about 15 cm (5.9 inch) btween these two fans.

I've placed the Noctua NF-P12 fan so that the air sucks out away from th... Read more

Hi there folks, hope someone can help with my little prob.

I installed PowerISO on my PC and rebooted as instructed but I think the BIOS has been zapped somehow as it will not boot past the POST screen, the cursor just sits there blinking in the top LH of the screen.

To make matters worse the PC will not boot from a floppy or a CD Rom despite setting it up corectly in the BIOS. I can access the boot order via the setup screen using the DEL key but cannot access the Boot priority via the ESC key, don't know if this is significant or not.

I have reset the CMOS three times and on restart I get the checksum error message (defaults loaded) and I have tried using the fail safe defaults and optimised defaults but I still cannot from a floppy or CD.

The manual says the checksum error could be caused by a dead battery )mobo is only 3 months old) but this would not stop it from booting would it?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

TIA, Colin
