  1. Hi guys, I am having some trouble with a new PC build, I was hoping someone could assist me! The problem is that my hard drive is not being detected in the BIOS, therefore when trying to install windows 7, nothing is to be found... HDD and Mobo: Item: Hitachi 2TB 3.5" SATA-III 6Gb/s Hard Drive - 7200rpm 64MB Cache Item: Asus M5A97 PRO 970 Socket AM3+ 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard I have spent most of the day looking at this and very stumped. I have tried installing drivers, checking cables, and altering the bios settings but no luck yet. I'd appreciate any guidance
  2. Hi there, I'd avoid purchasing anything from PC World, they tend to have poorer spec machines and at rip off prices. I have been using Dells for many years now and all of my laptops are still running without problem. I would highly recommend them. The difference between 2.2GHz and a dual core 1.8GHz is simply that the dual core is 1.8*2=3.6GHz which would outperform (all else equal) the 2.2GHz machine. Either way, which ever machine you choose try and get the most RAM for your money. Best of luck, j
  3. Ah that is all very interesting! I went another way (kawika I am like you!), I created a "windsurfer" which actually increased "the number of bars" on my laptop by 2 when sitting in the garage. Here's the link: http://www.freeantennas.com/projects/template2/index.html Thank you all again for your help in this matter! J
  4. Hi guys, thanks again for the help. I took your recommendations and purchased a Belkin N1: http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage...oduct_Id=377018 However, the router did not reach the garage! I was very surprised as this router is 2 levels above my original G+. I have since moved the router into the room closest to the garage (approx 8 metres closer) and now I get 1 or 2 bars on my receiver which works fine for what I need! I figure there must be some sort of interference towards the end of my garden but still an odd problem. Thank you all very much for your help!
  5. To report back, I have had a look through various repeaters/extenders have found a lot of reviews saying that they are very difficult to setup/have a lot of problems with them - I am rather short on time at the moment so I would prefer something easy so have opted for the N wireless upgrade. However, I do have one concern regarding the N router. As I am living in London England there is a lot of congestion around here and the N routers I have seen do not guarantee the signal distance. Is it likely that it will reach without problem? Also, with my laptop(s) would I have to purchase ne
  6. Fantastic, thank you very much for the help both of you! I will try them out and report back within the week. Much appreciated, J
  7. Dear all, I have a question that I hope you can help with. I currently have my wireless network setup for my home which works fine without any problems. However, I would like to have wireless in my garage which is approx 150 feet away, my wireless currently does not reach this far! I could run cables from my current router out to my garage using my spare ethernet ports at the back of the router to create a wired connection however, I would really prefer having a wireless setup out there, if possible. Is this problem as simple as purchasing another wireless router and running
  8. Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I used http://www.download.com/PC-Decrapifier/300...4-10636481.html, I dare not to touch the service pack unless i mess something up! It still randomly jars up - most recently when transfering files my from external hard drive; I was moving a number of files which totalled 6GB, the moving box said "not responding" until the file transfer was complete... :S
  9. Hi guys, thank you for your reply! I have that up now, I am defragging again from the advice. Is there anything else?
  10. Hey all, This problem has been bugging me for a while now so I thought i'd get your advice on this! I picked up a new Dell XPS M1530 laptop a couple months ago, I maxed it out with the best components so I have a Dual Core 2Ghz, 4GB Ram, and a nice 256MB Nvidia graphics card... The only problem is that it comes with Vista! I have never had any problems with XP (I downgraded my old laptop from Dell from Vista as I found that one laggy with Vista as well!) but with Vista I get random internet explorer crashes when I am on sites like youtube which goes off maybe every couple of h
  11. Hey there Thanks for the reply. Yes i tried to clean it in safemode and my system restore is disabled I'll post there now ty
  12. UPDATE: I just had a look through the hijack this scan and saw the trojan was on the list, i've deleted it off - hopefully it can be removed now Update 2: Well that didn't solve the problem.. It still says Access Denied. I've updated the Hijack This scan log Dear all, For the past 2-3 weeks I have been having warnings from avast + AVG that I have a trojan (see print screen). The problem is that I have performed numerous online scans and used many other programs to remove it but to no avail. Avast and AVG simply give me a Access Denied error when I try and move to chest. Booting
  13. Okay thanks very much, how would i find which drivers I need?
