  1. Like people have said, a computer running at stock speeds, especially something like a dell which has been tested it should be fine, but since it is pretty old it has to have collected some dust, just clear out any dust that is on the cpu heat sink or any intake/exhaust fans then you shouldn't run into any problems with it.
  2. My oldest http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=7198944 Hasn't improved much now though, this is the system im still using. http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k1=8688380
  3. Which is newer, which reads faster, do you need to write two cds at once? do you even need two optical drives, you might find you can remove both and just use a dvd-rw drive.

    No signal

    Ive seen that problem a few times and most of the time reseating the cpu will sort it, since this is a new build i dont know if this will work or not, best thing to try is to strip everything down to the bare minimum, unplug all optical drives and hard drives, pci devices etc, thats including power to the devices aswell, just leave the motherboard, psu, cpu, ram and graphics card connected up, also the cpu fan of course.
  5. Hi zmike, here is the motherboard information and it lets you know what cpu you can upgrade to and other information. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...1795&dlc=en
  6. Try taking the battery out then putting the ac power in and see if it will turn on, also if it has WWW buttons or wifi buttons, sometimes they will power a laptop on if the power button wont, check the dc jack at the back with a pen to see if it wiggles about, it shouldn't move much if it at all.
  7. But each one is an entire new game, each as long as the one before, i shouldn't have said expansion, its more like the next one in the series just, but they get better and better. Its also much better than £10 a month to play wow.
  8. I played the wow trial and didn't like it at all, not to mention the graphics were horrible, guildwars is a very good game and looks very nice also, its updated constantly and the plan is to bring out a new expansion out every 6 months, so the fun will never end and its only about £18, plus if your lazy you can buy the expansions through the game with a credit card and get them instantly.
  9. When in disk management, are you sure it dosent show up at the bottle of the screen where it lists the physical drives, if its coming up in device manager it should come up here, sounds to me like the partition has some how got deleted. There are tools to recover partitions but i dont know how good they are.

    I am certinly looking forward to it, i purchased a 360 on a release and was instantly disapointed by its lack of visual performance, both in looks and frames per second, it lacked in both in lots of games i played, im looking forward to the wii because i think it will be a very good console with the motion sensor controls and i think the graphics will enough to keep me playing for hours, im going to pre order mine some time this week along with zelda
  11. Seems like a codec problem to me, try reinstalling divx codecs, also try a different player, something vlc player to see if they work fine in that, media player classic is also a good one to use.
  12. The username will be Administrator and password is usually blank, in windows xp pro (not sure about media center) but while at the logon screen you can press ctrl alt delete twice to bring you to a logon prompt and log into the administrator account that way, if not just do it in safe mode and it should work fine.
  13. I believe when you run video files and things like that it "speeds" up your pc clock and makes your time go faster, i had the problem a while ago and thought nothing of it, but then after changing motherboard, psu and cpu, i thought hmm, somethings up, so i modified the registry and made it sync every 3 hours and havent had a problem since (Y) Indys link has everything you need.
  14. Does it only happen in this application, what about other video files, ones that arnt mounted in deamon tools, maybe its the application thats casuing the problem, or the codecs, or even deamon tools although unlikely.
  15. I smoked it for a couple of years when i was 14, when i stopped for the next 6 months or so i kept getting dizzy spells and was forgetting alot of stuff, grades in school started falling aswell, havent touched the stuff in years now and im not saying i wouldnt touch again, im sure i would but i wouldnt be smoking it, also about wether it should be legal or not, i have no idea.
