Logical Block Address

Q: Logical Block Address

I am putting together an old system to use. I reformatted the 2.65 gig hard drive that I was given for free. Told it works though noisy. Ran into some problems getting win98 se installed but finally ok. Tried to install a free 3 month internet prog (bell sympatico) and when i was asked to reboot i got error msgs.

so i reformatted again thinking that maybe the internet disc was corrupted but now i have scandisk telling me that the lba MAY be incorrect.

i accepted the large disc formating (+512mb) it forced me to make a second drive. so i have c (formatted) and extended drive d (also formatted) which is active as a logical drive (or some such, the exact wording escapes me right now) what would be the best steps for me to take right now should i delete the partitions and start over and if so what exact steps should i take to partition? thanx berthasbutt

Preferred Solution: Logical Block Address

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.)

Three or four months ago I put together a new system with these specs:


Intel Core i7-3820 3.6Ghz CpuAsus Sabertooth X79 Socket 2011Corsair CMT16GX3M4X2133C9 Dominator 16GB Memory KitOCZ ZX 850Watt PSUAsus GTX 570 Video Card2 - 2GB Western Digital Black Edition Hard DrivesCorsair H100i Closed Loop CPU CoolerPioneer DVD BurnerPatriot XT 16GB Flash Drive Installed for ReadyBoost
Not long after I started using it I started seeing sluggish performance and on many operations the spinning cursor basically waiting for 20 seconds before I could continue. Looking at the system log I'm seeing hundred of messages "The IO Operation at
logical block address xxxxx for disk x was retried" and disk x can be any storage device in the system i.e. either my main boot drive or my data drive, a USB3 attached hard drive or my ReadyBoost Flash drive.
I've seen other Windows 8 users posting about this problem in various forums and some people have had success fixing it through either an Intel chipset driver update, a bios update or one person switched his SATA controller from AHCI to ATA although I don't
know that would fix these errors on USB attached storage. Some people seem to think that there's either a problem with the Windows 8 storage subsystem or some kind of compatibility issue with bios or SATA controller drivers. At the moment I'm using the latest
bios available for the Sabertooth x79 version 4302 dated 9/3/13 and the latest Intel chipset drivers 9.4.0.1026.

Hi,

I am brand new at this stuff working as a volunteer in a volunteer organization. I've been asked to maintain their Workgroups computer set up (Windows XP Professonal, 8 computers).

One of the nodes has been designated the "mainserver". All nodes can access that server by for example:
start --> run --> \\mainserver
This causes the mainserver's directory folder to open and from here user's can access files.

One of the computers has crashed and I am configuring a new one. All has gone well but for one thing:
start --> run --> \\mainserver
does not work.

What does work is
start -->run --> \\192.168.3.14 (the ip address of mainserver).

On this new computer, how can I create the logcial name "mainserver" for the above IP address.

Thanks for your help.

A:Solved: logical name for the ip address of a node in a Windows XP Worgroup

Sounds like a master browser issue.
You could disable the computer browser service and see if that solves the issue for that computer.
Or you could just make an entry in the hosts file on that computer for the main server.

I can track their IP (they are all from south korea and france), but I was wondering if there is a way to block them.

Eh, may sound kind of strange but I think I have a stalker. Over the last few months I have been getting odd e-mails from this one person who I do not know (supposedly), now I have been getting messages left on my AIM by the same person. I set up a "spy link" in my profile and I now have that persons IP address. Is there anything I can do to somehow block that address and make myself invisible to this person?

Thanks,

With most email clients you can just setup a rule to delete emails from a specified domain. You can set your AIM preferences to block certain users or only allow people in your buddy list to contact you.

SYSTEM: P3 - clone Win2K O/S SP2 on system.
ROUTER: Linksys BEFSX41 v3

My issue:I have to block two ip addresses 1 XP PC and 1 WIN2K PC from the internet. It use to work until one day the WIN2K pc stopped working. For some reason it just doesn't block it anymore !! What is even crazier is the fact if I log in as ADMINISTRATOR on that pc I still can not access the internet, but if I go in as a normal user... I can go on the net.

I'm on a network with SERVER 2000 and 6 PC's
The DNS range (from the router) is from 192.168.1.100 to 150...

The IP address of the XP machine that still remains blocked is: 192.168.1.22
WIN2K pc was 192.168.1.25 and change it to 192.168.1.125 just to make it within the range. Didn't work.

Can I block the WIN2K pc from accessing the net with the admin tools from the server 2000 ? or do you have any tips that I can try from the router side. Please remember it did work. All I do is windows update and norton update. Just one day it stoped working.

A:Can Win7 block a mac address

Unless you use an ad-hoc network of some kind, I'm pretty sure they would need to go through a router that you are both connected to. You can employ MAC filters on a router pretty easily, on your computer it may be more difficult.

I have 2 computers connected to a router connected to DSL modem. Both computers have Kerio Personal Firewall. The logs keep showing that address 192.168.1.255 sends out UDP through port 138. I read somewhere that this is a broadcast address. What is that?

Is it ok to block it? Will it affect file transfers between my 2 coms or the internet connection or something else?
 

A:Is it ok to block broadcast address?

It's a NETBIOS port for mapping a drive on the network. If you block it, it will probably affect drive mapping between the two computers. If you put your local LAN in the trusted zone for the firewall, this problem should not exist.

Hi, 
I am trying to block SMB 445 incoming requests using Windows Firewall. I have configured Inbound rule to allow only specific IP address to connect through SMB and access shared folder but the rule is not working. It allows other computers to connect and
access the shared folder.
For example:
There are 3 computers: Win7-01; Win7-02; Win7-03
Win7-01 has shared folder that should be accessible only by Win7-02 and not by Win7-03
Steps carried out:
1. Created inbound firewall rule on Win7-01 to allow SMB port TCP 445 to be accessed by IP address of Win7-02 (Under Scope tab of firewall rule)
2. Configured rule to Block (Default) connections - (this allows only rules with exceptions) 
3. Allowed only Win7-02 hostname to access Win7-01 (Under Computer tab 
4. Configured same settings for default rule - 'File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In)
But the shared folder is accessible from both machines Win7-02 and Win7-03
Please suggest if any other configuration is required to be done
Even if I reverse the above configuration to allow or block any of the other PC the firewall rule doesnt work at all. It allows any computer to access shared folder on Win7-01
Appreciate your help to resolve this issue.

Does anyone know how to repair this error or should I just do a re-install of Windows XP???
 

A:Windows XP boot problem/error code 'Msg Block 0 Address not found'

Some say disabling the floppy A: drive in BIOS fixes the issue. Not sure if itll work but if you do decide to reinstall windows you can do a repair install instead which will leave all your documents and programs intact.

Just make sure after doing so you update windows as all updates will be lost in the repair install.

To all the fonts of all knowledge.
I have two questions which are simple ones but I cannot find or don't know where to start to look
Up until now we have supplied just software to our customer and now we are looking at providing the hardware as well as the support for said hardware.

1) The plan is that when we need to carry out any maintenance to the laptops, instead of me or one of my team jumping in a car/plane to the customers location to update the software (both windows and application), the customer connects the laptop to the
internet and dials into our Secure VPN so I can then RD into it to do all the work remotely. However the customer cannot have access to anything else in the outside world. I know it can be done as my wife's laptop cannot access the internet
but only through her company VPN. I want to do the same but not give the customer access to the internet at all just my external IP address so I can access it.
2) We will provide them with secure USB memory sticks to use but they can only use these ones, all others will be blocked. How do I do this?
Your thoughts will be very much appreciated

Im using the Virus Protection program through AOL. Every week they do a weekly scan ,and recently it came back that a Trojan Virus was blocked with the option to delete.

Should i also delete the file or just keep it as blocked so that particular Virus will always stay blocked?

Well, just yesterday I discovered all my windows application thumbnails were replaced by the default windows application thumbnails. Applications like Hearts, Windows Media Player, Real Player, Notepad, Calculator have all been affected.

My spybot S&D has, since 2 hours ago, got on maniac mode blocking all the registry changes on my blacklist. Here's a screenshot:

I have been using Adaware Pro and Spybot S&D. Did two full scans; Adaware came out null and S&D came out with CoolWWWsearch.WCADW, CoolWWWsearch and Nat.

Hello Guys,


I find this to be quite embarrassing, having an issue like this that I can't figure out.

Here's what I can't do.

1. Ping DG (Default Gateway)
2. Ping my IP (96.46.29.108)
3. Can't access my router via remote, even though its setup to allow it.

What I can do.

1. Access any web page.
2. Ping any website but my own IP/DG.
3. Play games & use the internet like usual.

I've forwarded the ports I use, and allowed all the programs to roll through the Firewall without issues. I'm not sure if my ICMP was disabled on my router, my family currently shut down my computer, so I can't remote in, and work on it.

I installed TeamViewer because LogMeIn isn't going to accept any "Free" connections anymore, and will require a paid subscription. I've got an older version of RealVNC installed, but I couldn't remember my serial key.


Sincerely,
Thomas

A:Ping DG, ftp block/httpd block

Is this from a remote location or from within the local LAN of the router? If remote, when you mean Default Gateway, is that the remote router you are trying to access or the default gateway used to access the internet?

Have you checked that the public IP address is current? Unless you have paid for a static IP address it is very possible for a different one to be assigned via DHCP by the ISP.

I hear blocking popups is not a good practice. I also hear blocking popups is not a bad idea. Which is it, which is correct? why or why not? Why do you block it or why you do not block popups?? thank you. YOYO.

A:To Block Or Not Block Popups

Popups are the leprosy of the internet.
I use Firefox, which blocks almost every one of them.

Can you advise how to use the IF and OR function for scenario below?

I've a list of text data start with "E1", "E2", "M1", "N" etc in certain cells. If the cell contains text started with "E" or "N", then cell A3 will return the value of cell A4, else no value. Is there any function to represent the "LIKE" or "BEGINS with" value? I've tried "E%", "E?" but not working....

Thanks!
 

A:How to use the logical IF function?

mid would work for 1st character

=Mid(cell, 1,1) = "E"

so something like
=IF(OR(MID(A1,1,1)="E", MID(A1,1,1)="N"), "match", "no-match")

then cell A3 will return the value of cell A4, else no value.Click to expand...

not sure what you need here

I assume you will put the formula in cell A3

in which case
=IF(OR(MID(A1,1,1)="E", MID(A1,1,1)="N"), A4, "")

Possibly on a server, but I don't think a client can.

Formatting the main drive into two partitions:
C: primary partition and D: logical drive (D is within extended partition and having the OS, XP pro)

Only due to the fact that C had been the first formatted partion, and is primary but has nothing on it. It was intended only to store larger files (movie files, pictures, etc.)

But now that I've loaded and restored Outlook on D I'm getting error messages I've not seen like "...\SBCMSYNC.DLL could not be installed or loaded" ...which microsoft support site says may be due to having the OS on D partition. Also, when opening any Outlook contacts am getting..."could not load an object because it is not available on this machine" when it of course is on the machine, or... " Object does not support this property page SBE.Datagrid1 line No: 11

Generally are there problems running the OS from the D partition ( logical drive within and extended partition) and am I looking at starting a new OS all over again?

A:logical drives

It means that your one physical hard drive is split into several logical drives that Windows assigns drive letters to.
