Preferred Solution: How hard is the N+ cert test?

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.)

The hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced. If you are still in warranty HP will send a replacement. If not a retail  SATA hard drive can be used. I believe this model uses a laptop/mobile hdd.Just be sure to get one of at least equal capacity as the original in order to use Recovery Media to install Windows. It can be larger, but not smaller capacity.For instance if you have a 500GB hdd you could use a 750GB hdd but not a 320GB hdd.

Hey, im just wondering if ne one knows the answer to this:

I took the old core hardware A+ test, 220-301, last summer, and i have school so i didnt take the other one. Now i want to take it the other half (OS), but there are new A+ tests now, so im wondering if i take the old OS test i still get the cert? Or is it useless? Or do i need to write both new ones?
THanks
 

A:A+ cert

Likely yes. Ask them. It all depends on whether they gave you a time frame by which you had to take the second test?
How much did you spend for the test taken? Did you pass well with a good score?

I need to test a hard drive to see if I can use it in a laptop. The drive is not installed anywhere. What utility should I use and how should I connect it to another PC that is functioning so I can test it. The drive is a Hitachi drive.

A:Need to test Hard drive

If you don't have one already, get an external HDD dock with a connection appropriate for the PC you want to connect to (such as USB 3.0, USB 2.0, or eSATA), plug in the drive, then try to see it on the PC you are using. You may need to format it if it hasn't been already (you didn't state if the drive is new or used). Once you can see the drive, use a program like Speccy (the free version will work quite well) to check the drive condition.

We have a working DA environment using a single server, we are planning to go NLB  and Multisite but MS advises not to use a self signed cert for NLS which we currently do use.
I have created a Web server cert for our NLS server following the below issued by our internal CA
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/remote/remote-access/directaccess/add-to-existing-vpn/step-1-configure-da-inf-davpn

I add the NLS cert on our DA server, click next and then go to apply the DA settings.
When I do this it says DNS name does not exist. I can create this manually before adding the cert but it gets removed. If I tick use self-signed cert the DNS name gets created automatically.
I can't understand what I'm doing wrong and why DA will not accept our CA issued NLS cert

Hey all,

We've just set up a Cisco 3000 series VPN on our network, and are using an internal server here as the certificate server for the VPN clients.

Just one problem. I'm still fairly new to doing new things on Windows 2000.

So I've been going through Microslop's site trying to figure out exactly how to set up the certificate server here. But I haven't found anything which explains everything, or if I need to install something, (besdies Cisco's VPN client) on the client computers.

I've created a couple keys through Certificate Server, but have no idea how to go about using them, or how to view the keys like in NT, like;
---------
dsfjsfhajalf
asfsfghsgjhf
2klg4hjglufi
lashg9hgw
---------
You know, that big encrypted key.
So if anyone knows a quick explanation of this, or where to find a description of what I need to do, I will be forever indebted to you.
Thanks.

Is there any way for me to test the health of a hard drive?

Here is the situation. I originally had a very old 250 GB Seagate drive that served as my primary drive for a long time. Never had any issues with it. I wanted a little more space so I purchased a 1 TB Western Digital Drive and used Acronis to set it up as my primary drive and put the old Seagate in a case so I have a "backup". It seems like every 6 months or so something happens where I need to put my old drive back in and then reclone it to the 1TB drive. This past time I simply bumped the power cord on the tower when grabbing something and it turned off the computer. Turned it back on and it was super slow and had major performance issues. Did a sfc /scannow. Fixed a few things. Tried to do a disk defragment and then it said I had errors so I went and restarted and it said it fixed the issues, but then later it happened again. Finally got frustrated and put the old 250 GB one back in so I would have a functional computer. Didn't clone it to the 1TB drive yet since had no time, and I wanted to work on it to see if I could get it "fixed" as I had more stuff on that drive, but nothing life changing. Is there any way I could test the drive to see if there is something inherently wrong with the drive as opposed to "normal wear/tear my mistakes like bumping the power cord? I could get a new drive if there is something actually mechanically wrong with it.

PROBLEM

My Gateway NE56R is having bad problems involving BSOD, PXE-E61 and PXE-MOF error messages, system crashes and hangs. The trouble started a few days ago after I foolishly clinked on a spam email link that may have been malware/spyware bait. When I realized I may have downloaded a virus, I used my Windows Recovery Partition to delete my entire operating system and restore the computer to factory default settings. The BSOD/PXE crashes came back, though.

I am now wondering if the problem is that my hard drive is dying on me due to age (I bought the computer two years ago) or if malware/virus may have infected the system restore software that resides in the Windows Recovery Partition. I suspect the latter cause, because my computer has never been exposed to any trauma that would break moving parts. I've only been using the computer for two years. Either way, I'm not sure, though.

MY QUESTION

Is there any way I can run some tests to find out which is the problem here? I'm not a techie. I'd appreciate any advice offered.

The hard drive is a IBM Travelstar 4.78 G

Our Nessus vulnerability scanner has been flagging our computers with the following vulnerability: SSL Certificate Signed Using Weak Hashing Algorithm

Basically what it's telling us is that we need to upgrade the local Remote Desktop Certificate from SHA1 to SHA2.

These certificates are self-signed and self-generated by the local machine. If you look at the certificate you'll see that theIssued to: and Issued by: fields show the name of the local machine.

The question is: how do these auto-generated, self-signed certificates, which are currently SHA1, get upgraded to SHA2? Remember, these are not created by the local Enterprise CA, they're auto-generated by the local machine itself for Microsoft-branded software such as AD and RDC.

Looking for ideas/suggestions on how to do this.

I recently read that a Netherlands CA, DigiNotar, had been hacked so updates are coming out to remove it from the CA list but that it should mostly affect Iran. So today I got an error message trying to access my bank (neither it nor I have any connection with Iran). The error message said "Peer's certificate has been revoked".

It seems too much of a coincidence for this to be unrelated so my question is whether the problem is wider-spread than the article said, or did one of the updates revoke a wider range of certificates than was needed, or did I just get unlucky?

Does anybody know what's going on with this problem? Thanks.

Hi,

I'm getting an error msg on my own website after installing my Verisign SSL Seal. Certificate itself works fine, but the seal (click here to verify) is giving errors on one IE browser and not another.

Can you guys please help me by telling me if you see an error msg displayed on the IE information bar when you visit my page:

http://applesofgold.com/test.html

I'm getting an error with my new Verisign SSL cert on my computer at work but not at the one at home. Using IE on both computers, same version, v. 7.0. I don't get this error on FireFox on either computer.

The error I get is:

To help protect your security, IE has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors.

I don't understand why it's showing up on my work computer and I'm hoping it's not showing up on other people's computers.

I would love it if I got a lot more computers checking to see if they get the same error.

Please help!

Thank you,
Afshin

I did not try the link but I will offer a few words of advice though.

You do not want to go into any restricted sites at work and should wait till ya get home but if you cannot do that then here ya go.

Open IE7

Click Tools
Click Internet Options
Click the Security tab
Click the Internet icon
Click Custom level
Locate Display mixed content
Click the radio button next to Enable (the default setting is 'was Prompt'
Click OK to save your changes

Have fun!

I installed ATA with the self signed certs as i was having trouble getting it to work.  Now that I have it working i want to put a real cert on the management site.  What is needed to complete this?  

Do i simply go to iis and change the cert?  
Do i also need to change it in the configuration page where it references it by ip address?
When i do that, do i need to redeploy / update the gateways?  

I am on 1.6 as of an hour ago.  Please reference the version number you are familiar with in your responses.  I would imagine that they are the similar if not identical but i want to be sure we are on the same page.
