  1. Getting the same here. The forum itself loads like expected, but the first click on any subforum takes forever to load. Then after that it is OK.
  2. Been seeing the same thing here since the upgrade as well, and still seeing it today.
  3. You have any kind of noscript or adblock type of addon/extension in your browser? For me it shows up as soon as I click in the Reply window. You can also hit the "more reply options" button and it will take you to the usual reply box/page you're used to seeing.
  4. Still there, Two of them, the link is down near the bottom left corner of the page. Looks like a combuination of the reply box you're used to with the quick reply box, only with much more functions/options than the old Reply button/box. Not sure about the rest, but a little poking around and you'll likely find most of it. If not some other helpful soul can point you in the right direction.
  5. Unless things have changed it doesn't matter what you set those to when running Firefox on XP, as Direct2D isn't supported under XP, http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=1775755
  6. Integrated Intel graphics that has no memory of its own (some do, yours is one that doesn't), and gets its memory from system ram. There may or may not be a setting in the bios or possibly the Intel graphics control panel that will allow you to allocate a set amount, but doubtful.
  7. All you should need to do when the TV is connected is to set it to extended mode (run dual monitors/displays), that will allow you to use both the laptop screen and the TV at the same time. Just drag the app/browser to the TV to watch, and you can check your email/etc on the laptop.
  8. voyager7 First off which motherboard is it? You essentially listed two totally different models, P5K-VM http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5KVM/#download Maximus Formula - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/Maximus_Formula/ The first has Realtek for the onboard audio, of which the link caintry linked is what you need. The second uses the Soundmax ADI 1988B audio, and the driver can be found on the above link. Next that "sound card" you listed, isn't actually a sound card. It is nothing more than a riser card used for the audio on that and a few other Asus motherboards in place of having it built into the motherboard. As far as I know it also won't work on any other motherboards other than the ones it came with.
  9. What is the model of that Dell?
  10. http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/
  11. SB0460 also known as the X-Fi Xtreme Music. You can find the driver and a few of the apps for it on the Creative support pages. http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=1&subCatID=208&prodID=14066&prodName=X-Fi%20XtremeMusic&subCatName=X-Fi&CatName=Sound+Blaster&VARSET=prodfaq:PRODFAQ_14066,VARSET=CategoryID:1 I have the same card and personally I would go with this instead, http://forums.creative.com/t5/Sound-Blaster/SB-X-Fi-PCI-Install-Disc-1-0-unofficial/td-p/556496 It is based on the beta of the current official driver, as well as all apps that could be modified to work with Windows 7 have been. Been using it on mine with no problems at all. If you do decide to use the official instead, make sure to download the second one listed as the first is for Vista and XP only. P.S. If the card came with the front panel box then it is the Platinum. Not that it matters any as they both ( Xtreme Music and Platinum) use the exact same driver.
  12. Your link doesn't work. And you don't need all those cables as they won't do you any good without something to send the TV signal to the monitor. A monitor doesn't have a tuner built into it, so there is no way of changing channels. You can't just connect the cable to the monitor and watch TV. Assuming you're using cable you would need one of these (or whatever model your cable provider uses), http://www.cisco.com/web/consumer/support/settop_4250HD.html or if going OTA (using an antenna) you would need something like this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882107075 Once you have one of those then you look at what you need to connect them together.
  13. You get a subscription here, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/subscriptions/default.aspx and after you sign up and pay for it then you can go here, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/subscriptions/downloads/default.aspx and download most things from Microsoft's library, with the up to 5 keys for most things. And no it is not OK to sell them, which is probably what you bought. The keys when bought like yours probably is do work for a while, but eventually Microsoft can and usually does blacklist the keys, leaving the person with a now no longer activated or valid copy of Windows (or Office).
  14. It is. most of those are Technet/MSDN keys that will usually work for a while, but eventually Microsoft will blacklist them.
  15. Have you tried undoing whatever it was that tune-up program did? You may have got Aero and transparency back, but who knows what else that program may have changed. If that does get it back to working, do yourself a favor and get rid of the tune-up program.
  16. May or may not help but have you tries with the latest version of Setpoint, which is up to 6.20?
  17. Busy little bee wasn't he? Needless to say he can now go and be busy somewhere else.
  18. If I understood the manual correctly it will only work when copying the new bios to a floppy or with the original driver disk that came with the motherboard, not with it burned onto a CD. Unfortunately you need a board with EZ Flash 2 to be able to use something other than a floppy, and then it is a USB key and not burned to a CD. Looks like you're going to have to go old school with it and break out a floppy disk to update/flash the bios on that board. P.S. If you have misplaced your manual you can find it here, http://support.asus.com/download.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&s=24&m=M2N-X&os=24&hashedid=gg77EtrKL4nFw1DU It shows the 3 different ways to flash the bios.
  19. Did you remember to rename it to "M2N-X.ROM"?
  20. Unfortunately no idea how to fix it at the moment if that is what it is, but JavaScript is not Java, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript#JavaScript_and_Java
  21. Those aren't Windows folder icons but going by the name of the drive I would guess that they are from using this, http://www.gladinet.com/
  22. When you got to here, South OnChip PCI Device (press enter) did you happen to hit Enter? That is where the setting for the onboard audio is. Unfortunately the only options once there is auto or disabled, Pretty sure that it is set to auto and with what you said about it being detected and working properly but not started in Device Manager, says to me that it is being stopped by the audio built into the video card. Double check that it is set to auto and not disabled.
  23. A couple of things, 1. The HD 4370 (can't find much on it as it is an OEM only card) has its own built in audio for passing audio over HDMI (or DVI-HDMI with appropriate adapter), and it has a Rwealtek audio chip on it for this. It is the Realtek HD audio that is on it and the driver for it gets installed at the same time as the video card driver. 2. It is possible that there is a conflict between the two different versions of Realtek drivers; the onboard sound is using the older AC'97, whereas the video card is using the HD version. Now with that said a few things to check, 1. Double check in the bios that the onboard audio is enabled, as the HP bioses (can happen on any motherboard, but the HP's seem particularly prone to it) have a tendency to auto disable the onboard sound when another sound card is detected and what is on the video card is a sound card. 2. Make sure in the Windows audio properties that the onboard and not the ATI HDMI Audio is set as the default playback and recording device. 3. If the above two check out, check the installed Windows updates and see if there are any from when the problem started for either the video card or the onboard sound.
  24. Assuming on of those disks you have is an actual XP disk and not just a recovery disk, then follow this, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307654#howtouserc on how to install and sue the recovery console.
  25. Granny, See if the solution here, http://www.proposedsolution.com/solutions/ntldr-is-compressed-press-ctrlaltdel-to-restart/ fixes it for you.
