  1. Happy Valentine's Day! A Valentine poem to remind you how true love should be - hee hee RED-NECK VALENTINE'S LOVE POEM Collards is green, my dog's name is Blue and I'm so lucky to have a sweet thang like you. Yore hair is like cornsilk a-flapping in the breeze Softer than Blue's and without all them fleas. You move like the bass, which excite me in May. You ain't got no scales but I luv you anyway. Yo're as satisfy'n as okry jist a-fry'n in the pan. Yo're as fragrant as "snuff" right out of the can. You have som'a yore teeth, for which I am proud; I hold my head high when we're in a crowd. On special occasions, when you shave under yore arms well, I'm in hawg heaven, and awed by yore charms. Still them fellers at work, hey all want to know, what I did to deserve such a purdy, young doe. Like a good roll of duct tape yo're there fer yore man to patch up life's troubles and fix what you can. Yo're as cute as a junebug a-buzzin' overhead. You ain't mean like those far ants I found in my bed Cut from the best cloth like a plaid flannel shirt, you spark up my life more than a fresh load of dirt. When you hold me real tight like a padded gunrack, my life is complete; Ain't nuttin' I lack. Yore complexion, it's perfection, like the best vinyl sidin'. Despite all the years, yore age, it keeps hidin'. Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie with a RC cold drank, we go together like a skunk goes with stank. Some men, they buy chocolate for Valentine's Day; They git it at Wal-Mart, It's romantic that way. Some men git roses on that special day from the cooler at Kroger. "That's impressive," I say. Some men buy fine diamonds from a flea market booth. "Diamonds are forever," they explain, suave and couth. But for this man, honey, these won't do. Cause yo're too special, you sweet thang you. I got you a gift, without taste nor odor, more useful than diamonds... IT'S A NEW TROLLIN' MOTOR!!
  2. Had that installed and said it was started, but still no go. None of the wireless apps or anything related to them seem to want to start as long as it appears that there is no NIC installed. Appreciate the suggestion pal
  3. Yeah..that's what I found also. It doesn't differentiate between the different versions of W7. I take that to mean that the entire spectrum of W7 is compatible. It won't hurt to try.
  4. Is Irfanview compatible, with the Windows 7 Starter Version in netbooks? Can it be used to set a JPEG as the desktop background as it can in the full version of Windows 7? TIA
  5. Guys...it appears that this model laptop had/has an inherent problem with the Bios, ie., a fan control issue, and an issue of not recognizing the internal NIC. A Bios upgrade to Version F.1F was supposed to correct both issues, but it seems that in the case of this laptop, only the fan issue was corrected. According to HP, "no warranty...no fixee", because it has the latest Bios version installed, albeit either corrupt or incomplete. Bios Agent program wouldn't even try, because it read also that the Bios had received the corrective Flash. It's working great with an external USB Wireless stick, so it appears that my choices are to run it with the external Wireless, or replace either the Bios chip or the motherboard. I think I'll stand pat for now. Thanks again for the input...always enlightening, always appreciated.
  6. Once again Joe, great minds think alike...lol. I did that earlier today, and it worked fine. I'm beginning to think that the Vista Drivers are not working with this card. Maybe I'll format it and revert it back to XP.
  7. I poasted thjis in the laptop and notebook forum and got no responses, so I thought I'd try it here. Compaq Presario 5217cl Notebook is not recognising the Wireless network card, not showing in device manager. Card replaced, same thing. Updated driver If I can't see it, I can't reset it. Wired NIC working fine. Actually tried a third card and had the same results. Wireless light stays yellow regardless of switch position. What am I missing here? Forgot to mention...OS is Vista Home Premium Test Results: http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=23815043&report=Summary

  9. Prayers headed that way Caintry.
  10. Joe, et al....I tried everything I could think of or remember and no luck. I went to do my Lympedema compression therapy and fell asleep in the recliner. I woke up, eyes wide open at 2:AM with those filters on my mind, remembering I had done that before. I couldn't remember the Regedit chain, so I looked it up, and went in and removed them. I had the latest driver from LG downloaded already, so when I rebooted, driver installed and....VOILA!!..problem solved. Thanks all for helping out..once again the good guys win out over the evil black magic of electronics....heh heh heh.. Have a great weekend...you all deserve it.
  11. Compaq Presario SR2150NX Drive shows in Dev Mgr with a yellow ! Try to reinstall driver - "Windows says the best driver already installed" Drive shows in Bios. Does not show in Disc Management Does not show in My Computer Will not play a disc...runs, but does not show, then shuts down All the above with different drives installed also Any ideas on this one. TIA
  12. That is one helluva an accomplishment young lady and family... We are all proud of you .... Good man having your back doesnt hurt a bit..does it Sue...
  13. When last we left our floundering hero: things hadn't changed....lol Out of case test was 100% ok...ran for about 15 hours with no problems at all. When reinstalled...immediate pulsating fans, shutdowns, startups, etc. Sprayed with "Poltergeist Go Away Spray" no changes... Reinstalled components one at a time...no change It's been running for about an hour...running Memtest86 presently Might get another case to try today......how very frustrating. One of my friends that has his own PC repair business, is of the idea that somehow a power surge of some kind hit the PSU, then MainBoard, CPU, etc., i.e., the Domino Effect that we have all run into now and then, especially here in Central FL, the lightning capital....i tend to agree, but he cannot explain why with all new hardware it would still act the same, and he closely examined the case and found nothing obvious, such as any marks indicating arcing, or excessive grounding, and the case was stripped of all wiring and examined very closely. It's gonna be another Advil day.....LOL
  14. Prayers definitely coming your way pal....
  15. Rog..I don't have a spare drive, it's SATA Joe, I checked out the switch, seems to be working fine. A friend in the business suggested that I elevate the board a little with some nonconductive spacers, which i did. It came on almost immediately without going near the switch, then...same old.... As i was typing this, it came on all by itself again. Out of curiousity, I began un plugging and disconnecting as it was running. I unhooked all external cables except the power supply Disconnected, the Hard Drive, CD/DVD Drive, Card Reader power and/or data cables, all USB cables, the 12+vdc plug to the mobo, and the on/off switch and led wires. The ONLY thing still connected is the main PSU plug to the motherboard,.........and the cpu fan is still running. The board, cpu, heat sink, and fan, and PSU are all brand new. It was doing the same with the old stuff which is why i suspected the case as well. I can unplug or turn off the psu and it will stop, otherwise...it wont. The psu is not physically touching the case...only the cables. The RAM was also pulled.
