  1. El Kido, So you're telling me that I can't run any games at all? I mean, I am not a gamer but once in a while I like to play a game or so. I'm going to try to run Call Of Duty. This game ran fine with the specs on my desktop(look below at the signature). My notebook seems to have more power than my desktop, except that the HDD on my desktop was a 7200RPM with 8MB cache and the one in my notebook is a 5400RPM SATA HDD. So I'm stuck with this video card then huh? Is there a way I can upgrade it? Thanks.
  2. Hello everyone! About a week ago I bought me a an HP notebook with an AMD 64 Athlon X2 Dual Core processor, 1GB of ram, and Windows Vista Home Premium. On the sticker it says that my graphics card is capable of up to 287MB shared video memory. DXDIAG says the following: Card name: NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce Go 6150 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0244&SUBSYS_30B7103C&REV_A2 Display Memory: 394 MB Dedicated Memory: 122 MB Shared Memory: 271 MB Current Mode: 1280 x 800 (32 bit) (60Hz) The NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 properties says: I'm a bit confused because I tried running the Transformers game and it lags big time. I haven't tried running other games though. I thought my notebook would run that game with no problem since I have all that video memory. Also, can someone explain what dedicated and shared mean. I know what they mean but I want to make sure. Thanks.
  3. Tito, I do have the drivers disk. I also have a 5 USB 2.0 PCI adapter card that I added to my PC a while back. My Dell monitor(which has USB 1.1) is connected to the USB 2.0 PCI card. Now I have another PC that has built in USB 2.0 and it works fine. Thanks. Armando
  4. Hello PCPitstoppers! It's been a while since I last asked for help. I need help with my wireless USB adapter. For some reason, when I connect the wireless USB adapter to my usb ports on my Dell monitor, Windows says it has found new hardware but then it restarts my computer. My mobo has USB 1.1 but the wireless USB adapter is 2.0. I have a USB 2.0 PCI adapter on my PC. Funny thing is that I have used it at work with no problems. I use a Gateway Profile at work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Armando
  5. Hello everyone! Well, I called Microsoft because I couldn't reactivate Windows. They try helping me to do a repair but no success so I was forced to do a clean installed again. I've downloaded all updates from Windows Update and I also installed SP2. Things are running smoothly right now. You'll notice some changes in Windows like a POP-UP BLOCKER(that's what it seems like)and a Windows Security Center window. So far, that's what I see. I would like to take the time to say "thank you" to each and everyone of you for helping me in any way possible. Thank you all. Armando
  6. Well, I haven't tried activating Windows again. I thought I could do it once Windows loaded. How can I activate it again? Thanks.
  7. You guys are probably gonna think this was a joke but it wasn't. Out of curiousity, I connected my PC again(I was using my sisters before). This is a funny computer I might add. I fired up the PC and guess what? It booted up giving me a CMOS error which was corrected after I fix the time on the BIOS. Restarted the PC and it booted up with no problem. Like nothing ever happened. You heard how curiousity killed the cat. Well, I connected the WD HD and it booted up also BUT it gaved me a "Windows Product Activation" error when it got to "Loading your settings" or some :filtered: like that. It says "A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the licence for this computer. Error code: 0x80090006". How can I fix this? Once again, thank you soo much for your time and patience guys.
  8. bluescout, Thanks but I have a bigger problem than that. I can't boot from anything. It freezes up on boot up and it doesn't get to where it detects Windows XP CD or a bootable floppy. What are the chances that it's my mobo? By the way, I took the Western Digital HD and I installed it in the other PC that I have on the network. Funny thing is that it goes through the whole boot process but restarts when the Windows logo appears and goes through the same process if I leave it running. I can also go into my BIOS SETUP. It didn't do that on my main PC. I don't know what's going on. Thanks for everyones continued effort to help me. Armando
  9. duanester, Thanks. The thing is that I tried looking for MaxBlast from Maxtor at their website and just found the latest version of PowerMax or some :filtered: like that. I didn't do this operation with Maxblast. Since the other drive is a Western Digital, I download the Data Lifeguard Tools to perform this operation. It looked like a regular program where you launch it and pick what you want to do. There was a disk to disk copy icon and that's how I did it. It copied all the files but when I replaced my Maxtor with the WD as my main, it didn't boot at all. I reset the CMOS(I believe) on the mobo through a jumper but it didn't do anything. I can't even run Setup in the BIOS because I press the DEL button to go into but nothing happens. I didn't install DDO. It's just stuck. So as of right now, my computer is disabled. Thanks again. Armando
  10. I didn't want to reinstall Windows. It was running flawlessly before that. The point was that I wanted to give my friend the Maxtor HD so I wanted to transfer all my data from the Maxtor to the WD that he gaved me. Yes, I did format the WD HD prior to the transfer. I say the disk to disk transfer didn't work because when I removed my Maxtor and install the new Western Digital, it didn't boot up at all. I try several times and nothing. It would freeze during boot up. I can't even boot up using a CD or floppy because it doesn't go that far into the sequence. I then reinstalled my Maxtor again to see if it was indeed the WD HD problem and I found out that it didn't boot from that one also. It was working fine before I did that transfer from the Maxtor to the Western Digital. I've tried the jumpers on the back of all HDs and nothing. I also tried the jumper on the mobo and nothing. I even tried disconnecting the CD Rom and DVD Rom. I can't even reinstall Windows because it freezes on boot up. As soon as my monitor turns on, it's frozen. Why do I have the feeling that my mobo is dead. I don't know what to do anymore. I have a non-working computer when it was running fine. Thanks guys!
  11. For trying to help a friend, this is what I get. I did a disk to disk transfer of Windows to the Western Digital HD. It turns out, it didn't work. Now, I connect my Maxtor(the one I always had) and it doesn't boot up for nothing. I don't know what to do. HELP!
  12. Hey everyone! My friend is bugging me for me to swap my Maxtor HD for his Western Digital because he needs my Maxtor. Don't ask me why. So I'm thinking of doing it. Can I transfer Windows from my Maxtor to his Western Digital without sacrificing any of my data? Thanks. Armando
  13. I think I had that before. I'm not sure. I did something with the refresh rate on my monitor and whatever the problem was, it went bye bye.
  14. I used to experience that with Windows 2000 Pro. It used to take a long time to shut down. You know what solved that problem? SP2 for Win2KPro. LOL SP2 for WinXP might do the trick but I don't recommend it for many have experienceed problems with SP2.
  15. Okay. I'll stick to WinXPPro SP1 until Windows Longhorn comes out.
