  1. Ok... parts get in tomorrow night. Heres what I'll have.


    OS- Vista Business 64 bit.

    RAM- Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)

    Mobo- ASUS P5K PRO LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

    Video- EVGA GeForce 8800GT AKIMBO 512MB

    CPU- Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W

    HDD- WD 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive- Raid0


    Air cooled in the Antec 300 case with two liteon dvd burners


    BTW... this computer cost under $900.


    So anyone know about the mobo and its bio's setup?

  2. haha.. well if we had our way with knowing what gets bought and setup, it would be installed right... kinda hard when your in the district office and the job sites are on either end of the country.


    Only in a perfect world...


    As for the bandwidth usage, it sounds to me like there are or were other problems with the set up. I monitor my network traffic, have installed the HP photo suite on my wifes computers in the past and have never seen any errant or excessive traffic. But then I also disable the automatic update options, hp device monitoring tray application...........


    In short, this isn't an HP problem, but an incompetent/poor system administrator.



    Sorry Bruce, but your completely wrong. This IS an HP issue. It sends a check to the printer, often and much. I've watched it on 6 machines where the job site gets a personal printer, usually a 2015 and 2605 or something like that, and sets it up themselves without letting us know. We wouldn't have ever known about it if it wasn't for the bandwidth monitors we have. I assure you.. its an HP crap program that is doing it.


    It very well could be just these types of laser printers and not something consumer based.


    If you would like I'll get the graph and prove it to you if you still think this. Numbers and data don't lie.



    Lastly... linux and HP printers are about the easiest thing in the world to get together... much like me and a ice cold beer on a hot day.
