  1. Hey Joe, I couldn't find any settings for the NVIDEA firewall. My two HDDs are set as IDE Channel 0 Master and IDE Channel 0 Slave, and the SATA drive is under IDE Channel 2 Master (or IDE Channel 3 Master if I chose the other SATA port). Not really sure what you mean about setting the jumper on the drive, I thought that was only IDE drives you needed to configure jumper settings? Also everytime I reboot now the system time/date gets reset. I'll see if I can get the drive to work in any of the other computers here, and failing that I'll have to go buy another one and check it out,
  2. Hey Joe, I just popped into the BIOS - seems to have reset itself for whatever reason (default settings/time) but the hard drive is set as first boot device, and the only RAID setting I can see is (and was) disabled. Mobo is: K8X250GB-Pro Cheers
  3. Hey Joe, It boots fine without the drive connected. The old DVD drive has been disposed of, but it was an IDE. This is the first SATA drive I've tried to connect with this computer. There's no problems with using the drive, once I log into Windows, it's just the messy part at the POST holdup. Cheers
  4. Hey caintry boy, Nah I'm not running RAID. There's a setting to enable RAID in the BIOS but I have that set to disabled. I couldn't find anything else in BIOS that looked like it might help either unfortunately. And yeah, this is my first computer and it's now... 6 and a half years old. Still running strong. Well, except for this hiccup... Cheers
  5. Hey guys, I tried swapping the cable around, tried a different cable, tried both SATA mobo ports... still the same problem. Sometimes I get this message after POST (but it won't boot windows still): NVIDEA RAID IDE BIOS 1.13a Copyright © 2003 NVIDEA Corp. Detecting array... Any ideas? Cheers
  6. Hey pit-goers! How goes it? I've just installed a new SATA DVD drive and now often the computer lags at the POST screen and I can't access the BIOS - although after rebooting a few times eventually it will get through, and Windows XP recognises the drive fine and I can use it perfectly. I've tried changing a few settings in the BIOS (when I've been able to get in) but I still end up with the same problem. Any ideas? I've currently got 2xIDE HDDs which are on the same cable. My MOBO is K8X250GB-Pro. Cheers
  7. This is my friend's tantalising response... Hey babe, Thanks for posting that thingo on and replying so promptly, I loved every second of it. I've read the response and below are my answers to Juliet's questions. (DO YOU THINK IT'S THE JULIET FROM ROMEO AND JULIET?!?!??!!??!) a. A few tools/programs were used by me to try and remove the virus - I was sorta just looking at a whole heap of different ways of clearing it and downloaded heaps of different free programs. The ones I remember the names of are SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, VundoFix and of course av
  8. Hey, a mate of mine was infected with the Vundo trojan a while ago and used some program to remove it. I suggested he post a hijackthis log here in the forums just to make sure there wasn't anything left over or what not. Here's his log: Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2 Scan saved at 8:03:41 PM, on 1/12/2008 Platform: Windows XP SP2 (WinNT 5.01.2600) MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16735) Boot mode: Normal Running processes: C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe C:\WINDOWS\s
  9. Or you could block ads through the HOSTS file... saves having to do it with each browser. http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm with regards
  10. Terrible. I liked being able to come to PCPitstop and find the full systems tests easily and not get hit with a dozen products on the front page. Also takes a while to load on this slow connection, alot slower than it used to. Layout looks nicer than the old one at least. with regards
  11. This is a computer help forum, and I stepped out of line. That stuff is better left to GD and this forum to helping with computer issues. with regards
  12. Fair enough terry, my apologies wittlewabbitfufu and markcynt. with regards
  13. There's a big difference between monitoring someone's keystrokes and seeing what websites they're visiting. Regardless, you should be able to talk to your kids and tell them what you think they should and shouldn't be visiting; if you can't trust them then that's a problem that lies beyond the world of computers and internet. with regards
  14. Says you who wants to monitor your son's web surfing? with regards
  15. Posting the TechExpress link to the Pit Test can offer much insight into your computer system beyond driver updates. What happened when you tried to download the drivers from the website? Are you sure your mate didn't install drivers for the speakers when he reinstalled Windows on your computer? with regards
