  1. overloaded calls in? as in the forums took a hammering from visitors? nice. i'm with you snake!
  2. Hi CB! yeah have been absent from the pit for a long while! Just started back at TRP as well. work was crazy for a long time, now i have a little more freedom.
  3. was wondering what was up? mr pickle at it again.
  4. in Vista there is a new service called superfetch which analyzes program you use most often and remembers code to make it work faster next time. In all reality it doesnt improve performance much if at all. When this service is running it can cause constant (and annoying) disk and cpu usage for the first 10 minutes or so of vista loading. if you disable this service, it stops all this access from occurring. I have disabled it on my dell xps m1730 which runs vista business, and my system still boots just as quick, but without all the disk and cpu usage afterwards. here is how to disable the service: 1) in the start menu search box type (without quotation marks) "services.msc" and hit enter 2) scroll down the list that appeared until you see a service named "Superfetch" 3) Double Click on the Superfetch Service and a dialog box will appear, in the 'Startup type' drop-down list in the centre of the dialog box, change from automatic to disabled. 4) click OK 5) right click on the Superfetch Service and left click stop. 6) click cross in the top right corner you are all done, next time you boot windows, superfetch will not start and you should have very minimal disk and cpu usage as it should be!

  5. sounds like your pst file is corrupted. (a PST is where outlook stores all it's folders such as inbox, sent items etc etc. also known as an outlook data file) you can use a utility to scan the pst files this utility is called scanpst and is usually found here (not on vista though.): C:\ Program Files \ Common Files \ System \ MSMapi \ 1033 \ scanpst.exe normally you will need to run a search on your hard drive to find the pst file - probably called outlook.pst so run a search using *.pst as the keyword and it will find it. right click the pst when found and click properties, then copy down the location of the file. BUT - by your last post it showed where the location is: C:\Documents and Settings\HP Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. now you can browse for the file easily using the scanpst program. hope this helps. EDIT: Make sure outlook is closed before you run this. probably a good idea to restart your machine too. just in case outlook hasn't fully closed down, like it sometimes tends to do...
  6. could you possibly post the whole error message that comes up when you try to send/receive??? the 0x00808.. blah blah number usually leads you nowhere.
  7. all hail barndon, the KING of u2u help. next time be productive instead of an arrogant know it all. jackpot - you can use device manager to find out what make of hard drive is in your pc and then go to the manufacturers website and get a utility to check the disk state - e.g. bad sectors if you cant find the utility, tell us the make of the drive, we could find the utility for you.
  8. wrong way around bro..... pci-e to pci not pci to pci-e... i was meaning the sound card etc...
  9. plus using a converter on those high end cards...........
  10. I am very, very, aware of this. my post also is also aimed to be sarcastic. how can someone have a dream system with all of these comonents when, obviously all the components won't fit.....
  11. sounds like you have the hard drive setup in the BIOS set to RAID. set it to Native mode (i think that is what it was called on that board) and then save and exit. you should be able to load windows on that board without needing a RAID Driver disk.
  12. i think everyone here is missing the obvious. The motherboard - ASUS P5W64 WS Professional here: has only 2 X PCI 2.2 slots. he has 3 PCI Devices.. NVIDIA DualTV MCE Tuner Card Bigfoot Networks Killer NIC M1 Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatality How Does that work....... please explain. i demand to know.
  13. still, i am very dubious over a cpu temp of 18 degrees celcius (especially with a mobo temp of 40) - that seems far to low for running farcry for an hour on air cooling. even if it is dual core. should still be up 35-45 degrees on idle. i would check your cpu heatsink and fan is mounted correctly. intra is right timing will not causethe ram to burn up. voltage is a good call but - your RAM, does it have heatspreaders over them or is it bare ram sticks.
  14. I needed a good laugh! cheers snake! legend.
