I want to create a RAID 1 on my 7040 MT and finally found the right caddy at ebay (Dell product # X9FV3) but it says that the caddy receives a 2.5-inch drive, not a 3.5-inch drive like the one that is already installed. I can see that  the housing that receives the second drive is sized about right for a 2.5-inch one and I have googled the product ID and everything seems to indicate that I need a 2.5-inch drive.

I was running a dual boot Vista and XP on the same partitioned HD,and it worked fine once I got it to boot both partitions ok (which took me some time LOL). Then a friend who is vastly more knowledgable than I about computers warned me it would cause me grief in the long run, and suggested I put XP on a new HD and remove XP from the original HD.

I removed XP from that original HD and then pulled the Vista HD from pc, and put the new HD in the SATA0 slot and did my install of XP. It works fine, no trouble.

Now however, with the original Vista HD in that SATA0 slot, and the XP HD in the SATA1 slot, all I can do is boot Vista, tho at startup, I DO have the option to boot XP, but it never boots, just various error messages.
Can I get a step by step for dummies on what I need to do to get XP to boot also ? I have Vista Boot Pro 3.3, but I think w/o instruction I may just screw everything up.

Hello,

Lately, I've noticed all of my applications (Word, Photoshop, etc.) use the metric system of measurement. I'm not sure why this started, but I'd like it to go back to the imperial system. Do you know how I can change this default setting? Thanks!

Chris

A:Metric system!

I don't know about Photoshop, but in Word you can go to

Tools -> Options -> General tab and check that the measurement units are in inches

Entering "measurement" in Windows Help gained this information:

To change the way your computer displays numbers
Open Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.
On the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats, click Customize.
On the Numbers tab, specify any changes you want to make.
Among items you can change are the decimal symbol and list separator, the format used for negative numbers and leading zeros, and the measurement system (U.S. or metric).

Note

To open Regional and Language Options, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.

How to Create Your Own XP System Restore Disk Guide + dual boot guide.

This guide is for XP users with home built systems. It may also work for others, but I have not tested it on any brand name systems.

Everybody knows that there is nothing sweeter then a fresh installation of XP. Your computer starts and runs faster. It almost never freezes up and crashes. Everybody also knows that as time goes by; your computer starts to slow to a crawl. You run the gambit of system utilities (defrag, registry cleaner, garbage cleaner etc), but your system never runs like it did when you first installed XP, and deep down you know that it never will until you do a complete reformat and reinstall of XP. So what is holding you back? Well, you also know that it will take a lot of time to reformat, reinstall windows, reinstall all of your favorite programs, and download the truck load of updates that have occurred since you first bought your system and your programs. And let?s not forget about your system drivers. Now if you bought a brand name system, it most likely came with a set of restore disk or a restore partition on your hard drive. Or it may have a program that asked you to create the restore disk when you first started it up. In any case, you may already have your restore capabilities if you have a brand name system. But even then doing a system restore would only take you back to the original OEM created system. I personally hate brand name computers because of... Read more

How to Create Your Own XP System Restore Disk Guide + dual boot guide. Part 2

One additional note I want to add before finishing this guide, is that if you plan to use this to dual boot, there are some additional steps you have to take to get it to dual boot. Since, when you do the restore as a dual boot option, you are not running the installation process, windows will not modify the boot.ini file to add the new XP installation as a boot option at start up. With out this, you will not be able to boot from the new XP system. In order to modify the boot.ini file you will need to go through several steps. I will give you two ways to do this below. The first one is the best and safest way to do it, the other is faster but there is some risk involved.

Option 1: This option uses the Windows Recovery Console. The simplest way to start the recovery console is to pop your XP CD into your CD drive and restart your computer. In most case you system should come with a black screen after the post process and say ?PPRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD ?.. You really need to pay close attention during the restart process to catch this screen as it only stays up for a few seconds. Of course you need to press a key, any key on your key board while this screen is up. If you don?t see this screen you need to do one of several things. Depending on your motherboard brand it may be a simple as press one of you F keys during the post process to bring up the boot menu screen, where... Read more

Hi,

I'm looking for an solution for an random issue on my clients computers (Windows 7 or 10).
They connected to an business vpn with Juniper network connect.
As usual, to be sure the computer use the vpn network to make dns reolution etc... the virtual network card created by juniper is using metric 1 to have the top priority.
That's working well since 1 or 2 years.
For an unknown reason When they connect to the vpn some computers keep the internet gateway instead of using the one provided by juniper vpn...
The solution we've found is to edit the juniper metric from 1 to 2 and after ipconfig /flushdns the route table is using the vpn gateway..the pb is, juniper create an virtual card each connections, so it is deleted when the users disconnect his vpn session.
I don't know why but the computers seems not update the route table when connecting to vpn..
We tried :
 - changing from ethernet to wireless or 3G/4G internet source
 - change the network card order in advanced parameters from the networking center..
 - route -f is not workingg

Do you have any idea..?

Sounds quite bizzare, Windows assigns a lower metric to the gateway it can communicate the fastest with, but in this case both have been assigned 20.
If you've manually assigned a gateway and metric you should see that in the list of persistent routes.

The horizontal and vertical rulers in Microsoft Publisher 2007 can be changed to display a different type of measurement unit. By default, the rulers in Publisher display inches, but you can change them to a variety of other measurement units.
For microsoft Publisher 2007.

Instructions

1 Once you're in your document, choose the "Tools" menu, and click "Options" to open the "Options" dialog box.2 Select the "General" tab at the top of the "Options" dialog box, if necessary, to display the basic settings for Microsoft Publisher.3 Click the arrow to display the "Measurement units" drop-down list from the "Options" dialog box. These are the different types of measurements you can display on the Publisher rulers. Choose the measurement you want from choices that include inches, centimeters, picas, points or pixels.4 Click the "OK" button to close the "Options" dialog box and return to your Publisher document. Your rulers will display with the measurement you picked. Use the same process to switch back to the original measurement or to choose a new unit of measurement.

Hey guys,
I am using a 3G modem (Virgin Mobile MC760). In short; I have 2 connections; 1 is wired ethernet and the other is this 3G modem. I want to be able to use the 3G modem in a guest Vmware system while still using my regular ethernet for everything else in the host. (Unfortunately this modem doesn't work in VM so I am stuck having 2 internet connections in Win7 and trying to route this).

I have read up on metric values but heres the problem. I set the ethernet for a metric value of 1 and the 3g connection as 9999, ethernet alone works fine, as soon as I connect the 3g modem it takes priority and changes my metric value of the ethernet higher and creates a 0.0.0.0 default gateway, when my ethernet is 192.168.1.1. The only way around this is if I disconnect my ethernet and reconnect it, it will then take priority and have both be connected and use ethernet.

Is there any solution to this?

The company I work for has recently gotten a new Internet connection at their farm across the street. Originally the time clock was placed there and monitored over the LAN on the computer that I am at right now. Now that there is a new connection I need to know how to connect the time clock on the other internet connection to this PC. Networking has never been my strong suit. any help would be appreciated!

-Bumbers

P.S. The time Clock is an anviz EP300 and the PC is running windows 8.1
 

A:Solved: Connect Bio-metric time clock to another network?

Hi Bumbers, and welcome to TSG.

Does the new connection at the other building have at least one static public IP address? If not, things may get a bit more complicated.

Beyond that, you will need to set up whatever modems and routers are being used across the street to port forward from the Internet public IP address to the private IP address of the time clock on the LAN. Having the time clock use a static IP address on the LAN, rather than get its IP address via DHCP would also simplify things.

It appeared to me that only registered users on the Anviz web site can download product manuals. I have no idea if or how the time clock can be properly configured to use a static IP address, the port numbers used, or the type of security it offers. Once you have port forwarding configured, the time clock will be exposed to attacks from the Internet.

After you have everything configured at the other location, you should be able to use the public IP address of the other location to access the clock from your location.

I have been to the section of Win7 personalization where metrics are stored for text display.

If you look at the window options section for borders and such, and select a metric in ("Change Windows colors and metrics" will get you there in the search box) -- everything seems to be in there except the area called window text. Window text is in the illustrated screen area. I can make a screen shot if necessary.

Going to the selections that default at an item called Desktop then right click to open, Window text is not there. An Item called Window (single word) is.

The goal is to have my files and folders show larger in -- Explorer I guess-- and in the network file folders I have in an old style workgroup set up for the home.

I have tried all of the options at the metrics screen but have failed to get a simple folders and files list to display in a larger font.

Hi!
I have a question that I can't find the answer for, I've been searching like crazy but keep finding the same responses which have in my case proven useless.
The situation is this: I have one router and one computer, the computer has two network interface cards which are both connected to the router and given IP addresses. I have made the metrics in Windows such that normal traffic SHOULD always choose NIC 1 and I have in the application "Tixati" set it manually to use NIC 2. I have then set my firewall to only allow the application "Tixati" to use NIC 2 while blocking it from using NIC 1. So in theory everything on my computer should use NIC 1 except "Tixati" which should use NIC 2.
The problem: The issue is that for some reason Windows will sometimes think it's a good idea to just straight up switch over to using NIC 2 for ALL traffic, even though it has a waaaay higher metric (static permanent routes) and the firewall is blocking access for the applications on that interface, which results in the applications being straight up blocked. This is temporarily solved by disabling and enabling NIC 1... Until it happens again.
The cause: I just straight up don't know, I do however think it has something to do with Windows probably trying to use a different NIC at the slightest hint of an issue with the main NIC, it often happens during web browsing and I even found one specific website that seemingly caused this issue every time I reloaded...

I've got a couple of G50-80 laptops that have mysteriously lost half their screws. I've never known a laptop to not lose at least one over time and have had no trouble finding the replacement screws. This is a first for me. The manual states that the G50 models all use M2 x 3.5 mm screws. Easy. Right? I can't find them. Even laptopscrews.com does not have them. Does anybody here know? Failing that, will using the M2 x 3 mm be alright? I've got a ton of them.

Well I got my new fans today 2 of them that light up. So I Screw them in(which is hard enough without a drill) theni I had to take one out but i wore it out. The screwdriver wont get a grip. Well I was able to get it out by breaking the fan ledge but is there any easier way? Is a drill worth the investment? Should I get a dremel to take out screws next time there worn out? because i think a dremel could probably cut the head of the screw off. Thanks everyone who replies.

where do you live (country)? You can get a "screw kit" for about any laptop on eBay or amazon if either ships to where you live This is the HP Part No. for the screw kit: Screw Kit 687098-001 The Service Manual shows the size and type of every chassis screw: Manual  Even though this is not your model screws do not change much and this kit would likely have all the ones you need: http://www.ebay.com/itm/486622-001-GENUINE-ORIGINAL-HP-SCREW-KIT-ALL-SIZES-INCLUDED-PAVILION-G60-500... If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hello, I am hoping I can get some help with this.

I recently had a problem where any game I played would crash the computer after a few minutes of playing. I tryed everything from updating drivers and such, using a different video card, getting a new case/ power supply and more. Finally I went and reinstalled windows and that worked. The games have been going fine for a few weeks. This morning I finally got my lazy self to download SP2. Well, guess how well the games played after that? Right, the problems started again. I uninstalled SP2 and now everything is fine.

Obvously I kind of want SP2 for updates and stuff, but not if its gonna wreck my gaming. Any idea what could cause this?

Specs:
Athlon 64 bit 3400+
Radeon 9800 pro 128
one gig ddr ram
western digital 120 gb hard drive
can provide more if needed

thanks in advance

I have a G50-45 notebook and 3 of the screws now have come out. I've never touched the screws, they keep coming out on their own. I looked in the user manual (no luck), and the lenovo support site wasn't even helpful. I just need to know what size to order replacements, because the right side of the laptop is coming apart and I'm afraid the disk driver or the screen is going to break. There is one different sized screw on the bottom that's labeled a metric 2 .4 x 6 mm, so  I ordered a set of those thinking that they would fit the other holes but they didn't (they were too small). Help is much appreciated, thanks.

A:Screws falling out G50-45

Hello and welcome,
 
I think all the screw sizes are called out in the HMM:
 
Hardware Maintenance Manual - Lenovo G50-30, G50-45, G50-70, G50-70m, Z50-70, Z50-75, G50-80

so i bought a case and it didnt come with enough motherboard screws, only had 7, my mobo takes 9. so i took a couple of spacers and screws of off another motherboard in an old pc. my question: will it matter that the screws are from an ancient motherboard? have there been any problems, are they the same size mostly?
 

A:motherboard screws

The age of the screws won't matter but the thread type might. Just do a test of the threads before you put the mobo in. If the screws go in nice and easy then they'll be just fine. You can also just grab a couple of nylon spacers and insert those into the screw holes on the mobo so that the board is nicely supported.
