Seagate Settles Suit Alledging Deceptive Gigabyte Definition

Q: Seagate Settles Suit Alledging Deceptive Gigabyte Definition

I'm placing this in the hardware forum because this is where many have posted their question about why there is so much space "missing" from their new hard disks.

I've never varied from my contention that hard disk manufacturers were engaging in deceptive advertising when they defined a Gigabyte as one billion bytes. (A Gigabyte is 1,073,741,824 bytes.)

These people chose to sue Seagate as opposed to other manufacturers; but, even though this case never went as far as judgment (settled out of court), a defacto precedent has been somewhat set.

Of course they admit "no wrong-doing".

Here's the article:

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.)

It is confusing because there are many different computer terms which sound similar, but are very different.

I think they should label drives according to what the consumer "sees", therefore a 500GB drive would be sold as a 465GB drive and a 320GB drive would be sold as a 298GB drive.

I think you could compare it to selling a car which gets XX mpg but everyone gets YY mpg because most people use a "different gallon" (US or imperial).

I realise this is a very specific issue indeed, and also kind of a '1st world' issue... but I'd like to know what's causing my Gigabyte P57Xv7 laptop to boot twice, every time whenever my 4TB Seagate Backup Plus USB3.0 drive is connected to it. Here are the salient points:

The first boot doesn't even make it to the spinning Windows circle, it only gets to the initial Gigabyte screen, then after a few seconds it reboots.
It's not the same type of double boot that occurs whenever you first plug in a new USB device (which I assume is for the BIOS to enumerate the new device?) - those boots are much shorter than this one.
It only boots twice when the boot is from a shutdown state. Not when it's a Windows 10 restart.
However I doubt it's a Windows issue, as it happens even when I disable Windows Boot Manager in BIOS (which makes the laptop boot straight into BIOS instead of loading Windows 10)
I've tried various BIOS settings (like enabling/disabling USB Legacy Support)
I've also tried various Windows settings (like disabling Hibernation and playing with various Power settings)
The Seagate drive is not a boot drive, and there are no hidden/system files in the root directory. Its file system in NTFS.
The drive has passed all of Seagate's tests via its SeaTools program.
While I don't have an awful lot of other hardware to play with, I can tell you that 1) the Seagate does not cause another older laptop to do the same thing... Read more

I just got done cleaning all kinds of nasty viruses, worms and other malware off this computer with McAfee, Avast, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. One of the viruses is known for attaching itself to all .exe files. There were over 500 items detected.

So now I start up the computer, enter the user password, it says "loading your personal settings" for a second or two, then says "logging off". So I can never get to the desktop. It just keeps going around in this circle.

Any suggestions besides reinstalling Windows.

A:PC keeps logging off B4 desktop settles

Hi had the same prob on a clients pc. Try this

1. Navigate to
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

2. If there is a key named "OldUserinit", delete the "Userinit" key and rename the "OldUserinit" key to "Userinit".

3. The "Userinit" key should now say
"WINDOWS_PATH\system32\userinit.exe,"

"WINDOWS_PATH" is relative to where you have your windows installed.
Mine would be "C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,"

Hope you come right.

Rebuilt my machine 2 day ago with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. searchindexer.exe has been running at 50% CPU usage when I am not using the machine and around 15% when I am using it. When is that going to settle down? Profile directory is about 26gb (mostly in downloads) and a 2.5gb Outlook mailbox.

I checked and under Indexing Options it shows that 98,840 items are indexed and that it is complete. Don't get why it's still running with so much CPU usage.

If I click Pause, it does knock CPU usage to nil.

I cannot give you a specific time table for your question, but I can share my personal experience. After Vista and again after Win 7, it took quite a bit of time for my HD to slow down. My computer was indexing, making images, restore point etc. Wait a few more days, if things donot settle down come back and we take it from there.

Hello, well for one I can't use the RootRepeal.exe program in the Preparation Guide that is provided. Every time I use it my comp crashes and I have to force Shutdown (power button) to be able to use my comp again.

1)Now back to my main problem, my comp keeps doing weird things on it's own. Every time I restart my comp some of my start-up trays don't show up in the bottom right like my Anti-virus program or a false negative (Windows Security Center) saying it's off when I clearly checked the program and it's on. I use Avira as of now.

2)Whenever I leave my comp on Idle mode or sleep for a long period of time I can't use any programs w/out having to restart my comp. It always say some crap like "out of memory" error. Only programs that work when I return to my comp after a long break are the ones I keep on. But once I exit out of it. I get the same error again when I try to open it up again. PLEASE HELP, it's insanity that I have to restart my comp EVERY time I want to use it after idle mode. Thanks in ahead.

The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply.

Hi,

I don't see any way to detect this within the structure of O.Express

There may not be a way.
If there is a way, i would like to know.

Some days ago an automatic update was installed. It shows up in the update history as Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB915597 (Definition 1.143.1033.0).I am not 100% sure if this is responsible but almost right after the update I have trouble connecting to routers. There is one router I have the wpa2 key for but when I fill this out it won't connect. Using the button on the router to connect also doesn't work. The router shows activity whenever the pc is trying to connect. There is also a WiFi from the neighbors that is open. I can connect to that one some of the time, but most of the time there is no internet connection. Also sometimes when connecting it asks me for a key, although the connection is open. Other computers can connect without problems.Connecting the pc to the router with a lan cable works though.I tried fiddling with ipconfig, and using static ip's. Deactivated the adapers and switched them on again. Deleted wireless networks and updated drivers.No avail...The OS is Windows 7 64bit. The pc is a Dell XPS.Any thoughts?Thanks for your help.

GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - NVIDIA - PCI Express Solution - GeForce 700 Series - GV-N760OC-2GD (rev. 2.0)

Also I know the GTX 760 is newer and has PhysX Support but it's costing $80 more than the HD7870 also my motherboard does not have SLI Support but it's CrossFireX Ready and I wanna play all new games at maxed out settings (if possible) and I have LCD that has a 1440x900 Native Res. There are chances that I might get 1080p Monitor in Q1 or Q2 next year. The 7870 is available for $280 and GTX 760 for $360 in my currency and country. These are the least prices I can found and now you have all the info please help me choose which one would be good for me in terms of Price, Performance and most of all Power Consumption as we have frequent black outs and my UPS has little backup time to turn things off especially when gaming while system is running at PEAK!

I am only getting 30.1MB/s.

A:USB2.0 HD Transfer over Gigabyte Network to Gigabyte NAS

You're doing well. Large file transfers on my system via USB 2.0 are only about 24 MB/s. I did notice when I plugged my Seagate USB 2.0 external into my SIIG USB 3.0 card, sequential reads and writes were about 15% improved. I just plugged the USB 2.0 drive in while I was waiting for USB 3.0 docking stations.

If you have a free PCIExpress slot you may get some improvement plugging the USB 2.0 into the USB 3.0 card. But using SIIG USB 3.0 docks and WD caviar black internal drives I find the drives run at full speed. Only thing is now the price bubble is preventing me from increasing my stock of internal drives.

Which setup would yield a better image and higher fps?

--Side Question: If I would Crossfire there would be 1 PCI slot between the two cards on default cooling. Liquid cooling is only on the CPU with the H100i. Right now my current GPU doesn't go over 111F (44C), would the second GPU that close to the other cause a drastic increase in temps? Also the second GPU would be rather close to my PSU, but the PSU is upside down with its fan on the outside of the case so no additional heat from the PSU..

What are these games? I have heard and seen them around for years. Are they any good?
 

A:Leisure Suit Larry

I'll have to take a look at the newer one as it's been many years since I played the old ones. I remember playing them quite a few years ago. It seems like the originals graphics may have been EGA (16 color), then again maybe it was an early 256 color vga implementation. You had a little character who's goal was to get laid, and he was sort of an loser who wore leisure suits (from the late 70's early 80's I think). Basically make the wrong moves & he dies from things like not using a condom during an encounter with a hooker or cutting through an alley he dies from getting mugged.

The biggest problems I remember from those games was that you had to type the right phrase exactly to get through certain situations, which was frustrating at times. There were several version I played with the latest being more like a james bond movie (or austin powers), but they were nothing like today's games graphically.

Now that games are so much better I expect the new one to be something completely different.

A:Help picking a security suit Please.

Choosing a security suite involves many of the same questions asked when Choosing an Anti-Virus Program or Choosing a Firewall. There is no universal "one size fits all solution that works for everyone.Although Norton (Symantec) is as good as any other well known anti-virus program, it requires numerous services and running processes that consume system resources and often results in complaints of high CPU usage. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up and create files/folders/registry entries in various locations.I have read from other users that Norton has made improvements in newer versions of their software so they are not as resource heavy as past versions...while others still say differently. However, Symantec products can be difficult to remove and remnants are often left behind which require the use of a special removal tool, otherwise you may encounter problems installing a replacement anti-virus. To be fair, other vendors are also using removal tools for the same reason. Those issues plus the cost factor are the primary reason many folks look for a free alternative. Further, IMO, Norton is better utilized in an Enterprise system environment protecting many client computers.Norton Internet Security is a suite which means it includes additional features, in addition to anti-virus protection. Some of those extra features will also consume resources and affect perfo... Read more

Im basically wanting to fit a card that's as higher spec as I can go before the rest of my PC(CPU,RAM,MBoard) becomes a hindrance on its performance.
Operating System
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit SP1
CPU
Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 @ 2.93GHz 39 C
Wolfdale 45nm Technology
RAM
4.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 533MHz (7-7-7-20)
Motherboard
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5G41T-M LX (LGA775) 43 C
Graphics
VS248 ([email protected])
1024MB ATI AMD Radeon HD 5700 Series (XFX Pine Group) 49 C
Storage
465GB SAMSUNG HD501LJ ATA Device (SATA) 42 C
Optical Drives
SONY DVD RW DRU-840A ATA Device
HUAWEI Mass Storage USB Device
Audio
ASUS Xonar DGX Audio Device
 

A:Graphics card to suit

With Core 2 Duo, I'd say any current $150 card. Just make sure your PSU will be strong enough to power it (at least 400W). Anything less than 400W, and you should probably stick with $100 or less cards.

i bought a 2nd hand motherboard with processor.


what video card will suit my mother board?

amd athlon 64 x2 d core. 4600+

1gb ram


is 512 ok or should go lower?

thanks for the answer, and following question is, im running my motherboard with 20pins, but it has 24pins.(bec. my powersupply is a bit old) but its still running.

any advice?


sorry for bad english. thanks in advance
 

A:What video card will suit my motherboard?

I ran mine on the 20 pin for awhile, you can pick up a 20 to 24 pin adapter for about 8 ($10) quite easily around the net (and it would be best to get one).

You don't say what motherboard you've got (?), but the question of what graphics card you should have depends on what you might want to use your PC for. Heavy gaming, light gaming, or just document work ect..

I am attempting to transfer / install my old Adobe CS 3 on a new Windows 10 PC workstation.

Shortly into the installation process the installation is interrupted, and the file; ?Adobe PDF.dll? is requested from an Vista CD-ROM.
We do not have an Vista CD-ROM available.

How can I get around this issue and get the program installed?

Thanks guys??.

Hello. I currently have a 2 7200 rpm gateway hard drives with a raid controller. One is 10 gigs, and the other is 60 gigs. I like the dual setup, but I would like to replace the 10 gig hard drive for a very fast 20-30 gig, and put all of my programs on it. I plan to use the 60 gig for games. My pupose is to speed up my program operations as I am a speed fanatic. Can I use two different speed drives with RAID? Can I use an SCSI hard drive?
 

A:What kind of hard drive will suit me best?

You can use any kind of hdd ( speed and size wise , of course as long as they are ATA ).
2. if you use different size hdd , the RAID controller will use the lowest size one as base ( example. now you're using a 10 gig and a 6 gig. The Raid controller will use the 6 gig on one and 6 gigs on the other one giving you a total of 12 gigs.).
3. Same goes with speed. Can use a 7200 rpm and 5400 rpm but again will loose from performance.
4. Can you SCSCI as long as u get ( or have onboard) a scsi controller.
5. When it comes to games , so far there's little improvement (speed wise) over regular ATA. You're better off with Raptors 10,000 rpm's ones )
HTH

Hi. I was on a 4chan, someone posted a "msnhacker", I knew it was a virus, but I also knew that I probably would get rid of it anyways without any help, but I really didnt. Some "virusprogram" called security suit is running and saying that I have a tronjan in sys32 ect, and everytime I try to run a program, it get "infected according to my computer. I took out my internetcabel and started in security mode, I ran Avast and found 42 viruses, deleted them, ran it again ect, then I restarted, and everything happened again. At the end, i got a message saying that I got attacked from this and that IP from the port bla bla bla via my port bla bla bla (cant remember as I turned it off again), now I ran Malware bytes, and it didn't find anything.
Right now I'm on my Linux and don't have access to internet on my desktop.
Is it any chance that the trojan might have gotten any information like passwords and username, and the worst case of it all, to my bank account since I check it online?
Thanks!

hey everyone,

i recently got laisure suit larry magna cum laude and installation went all well... but when i run the game it loads fine and everything, but if i move the mouse to rotate the camera around the game just exits without warning... it seems to happen specifically when the 'camera' kind of hits something...for example, when in larrys dorm room i turn the mouse to see the other sides of the room, the camera must move, and sometimes will hit the wall and instead of zooming or something to adjust for the wall the game just shuts down and takes me back to windows...if i move around VEERY carefully i can play the game, but thats no way to play a game...

it looks like a funny game and it cost me money, so i dont want to just pack the cds away and call it a lost cause...ps, the manual didnt even have a troubleshooting section in it, and i checked online and found no patches to upgrade the game...

if tried changing the resolution, disabling the joystick and using the keyboard, and they didnt work... my comp meets or exceeds all of the system requirements for the game..

what could cause these unexpected crashes? any ideas are welcome..

thanks in advanced..

i want the antec nine hundred case but since the PSU sits att he base, im not sure if the power cables r long enough to reach the power connectors on the mobo.

my PSU is the CoolerMaster 600W iGreen Power

my mobo is
Asus P5ND2-SLI
help please?
 

A:Will My PSU Suit The Antec Nine Hundred Case?

You shouldn't have problems with the main 24pin power cable - as mobos have that in the front. But the AUX 4-pin (black & yellow) can be tricky.

You can snake it inder the video card between the back of the case - next to the mobo... or buy an extender cable if needed.

Read some reviews: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021

PS: the only complaints people seem to have the most problem with - is that there are no filters for the fan and so it SUCKS in lots of dust. (The thing has 4 fans in it) - so it looks cool and quiet.

I think FILTERS are important for keeping the dust out. My P150 has 2 filters in the front which every few months, I have to clean off. The black version of the P150 doesn't include a PSU and is $100.

Hi Everyone,

I have an NVidia GT520 Graphics Card which doesn't appear to be branded and I would like some advice on which driver to use with it; here is a photo of the card -

I have looked at the NVidia site and there is a GT520 (OEM) card which looks almost identical;

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt-520-oem

There doesn't appear to be a specific driver link on the webpage (indicated above) so I am thinking that the best driver to download is this one -

http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/59671

As I am installing Windows 7 64 Bit the above driver makes the most sense I think.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo
