  1. Jibby have a good look around over here,

     

    http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/

     

    Quite a few threads dealing with BSOD's and Sleep.

    I experienced that one firsthand when Vista came out. Had a 7600GT at the time and the Nvidia drivers kept me on XP for about 6 months till they finally got decent Vista drivers out.

     

    - Well I ended up just disabling the standby/hibernate commands. It doesn't look like my video card supports S2 .

     

    powercfg.exe /a

    The following sleep states are available on this system:

    Standby ( S1 S3 ) Hibernate Hybrid Sleep

     

    The following sleep states are not available on this system:

    Standby (S2)

    The system firmware does not support this standby state.

    We'll see how things go. Not sure if this may be related to the fact I'm hooked up to an HD Plasma - maybe that video connection is the one with the problem.

     

    If anyone else runs across this error, please post your monitors/video connections, maybe we'll see this is related to that.

     

    I'm running 2 Dell 1905FP, a ViewSonic VA2226w, and a Panasonic HD Plasma TH-42PZ77U

  2. I installed Windows 7 (now fully updated) this morning, setup all the programs/drivers for my hardware, and transferred the files from my previous computer over to this new install.

     

    The computer has been running all day just fine, many restarts, zero issues.

     

    I left the computer alone for 30 mintues, and it decided to go into a standby type mode (video card gets quiet, monitors turned off), I brought it back by tapping the spacebar (didn't hit the power button).

     

    When it comes back, I am immediately presented with a blue screen.

     

    Problem signature:

    I uploaded the zip of my minidump here: http://tiny.cc/XiqV6

     

    Minidump points to display drivers, but I'm running the latest version, so dunno what else I can do...

     

    Installed 'em fresh today.

  3. Well I don't believe there is an easy fix to this.

     

    The issue could be outdated drivers or hardware. With an old computer, I would be careful updating the drivers. Not saying it won't work, but there is a risk with an old computer.

     

    As long as you ruled out the cable, the next easiest thing to do is go down to Best Buy and grab one of their network cards.

     

    You can buy one at newegg for $17 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16833314101

     

    If BestBuy doesn't have anything reasonably priced, at least buy it so you can test it. Network cards are usually refundable in full, without any restocking fees.

  4. What's the model of the computer?

     

    Have you tried adding an ethernet card to rule out the hardware?

     

    Have you tried another cable to connect the cable modem to the computer?

     

    Are you saying the computer would not boot up when the cable was connected, but it booted up just fine when you unplugged the cable?

  5. Actually that isn't the answer...

     

     

    However, everything I have seen requires you to be able to view the hard drive under My Computer.

    and

     

    I can't see the hard drive within My Computer, but I do see it under Disk Management.

    The instructions/link would work for me if I could actually see the drive within My Computer.

     

    Any idea if a dynamic disk will display if it is inside an external enclosure?

  6. I have a hard drive that was connected via my raid card (some cheapo card running the Silicon Image SiI chipset.

     

    In order to use that drive, it had to be converted to a dynamic disk.

     

    I'm ditching my raid card, and XP doesn't like it because it is a dynamic disk, and wants me to format it to be basic.

     

    I can't see the hard drive within My Computer, but I do see it under Disk Management. It wants me to convert it to basic before it is visible within My Computer.

     

    I don't want to reformat the drive because I don't have a backup of all the information, plus it would take a long time to restore it all (roughly 500gbs).

     

    So I'm looking for a way to convert a dynamic disk to a basic disk that will not erase/format the data, and will not require me to be able to see the disk under My Computer.

     

    Any suggestions? Everything I have read either requires a format, or requires the hard drive to be visible under My Comptuer.

  7. RAH,

     

    1 yr warranty throws me off immediately. Even if the board is better than the Intel one listed below, I'd much rather have a company that will replace the board well after only a year of use.

     

    Bruce,

     

    That Intel board has a 3 year warranty with it, I like that a lot. The price is more than I wanted to pay, but that's the first board I'm happy with.

     

    For anyone else in the same boat as me, here are some links about the Intel Matrix Raid (this is the first time I've read about it).

    (1) Intel's Matrix RAID explored

    (2) Intel Matrix Raid Guide

     

    It sounds like it has been around for a couple years (meaning it isn't a first version, and thus is less prone to problems that the original releases usually have).

  8. I'm looking for a motherboard that offers raid 1, works with a LGA775 E6750. It must come with a good warranty (hopefully 2-3 years). I'm factoring in about $80-$110 shipped to 85233. I don't mind a built in GPU...

     

    Any suggestions? The Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L is receiving quite a few good ratings, but it doesn't support raid 1, and I can't justify spending another $30 on a decent raid 1 card.

  9. Have you ran the Vista upgrade adviser? Vista can freeze due to hardware problems that you won't see with XP.

     

    Could be your ram, could be a setting with your MB.

     

    Here's a suggestion to Disable int he BIOS EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology)

     

    You can also disconnect all USB devices, try it, or disable USB in the BIOS, and try again. Vista also stalls with certain graphic cards as well, it is found that if you replace your video card with another one, and try to install Vista, it seems to work. People have also been able to get it to work by rolling back their BIOS to a previous version (something I wouldn't suggest).

     

    Sounds like a great OS huh? Are you sure that you want to install this?

     

    If you haven't activated Vista yet (or if you have and you are within 90 days of activation), and you have a retail version, then you have 90 days of FREE phone support with someone from MS who can barely be understood, the number is: (866) 234-6020

  10. I believe the problem is the fact you want to install Vista :P

     

    Are you wanting to perform a clean install (erases all data, then installs Vista - the safest options, or an upgrade - upgrades your current XP to Vista)?

     

    Insert Vista DVD into your drive, then go into your BIOS and set your computer to boot from CD/DVD. Alternatively, if you see a "Press F12 or F10 to select boto menu" message during your boot, you can simply press F10/F12 (whichever it is on your screen) to have your computer boot from the CD/DVD drive. Either way works, the 2nd way is usually the easiest way.

  11. I decided the only other thing it could be was the MB, but before RMAing the motherboard again, I wanted to reverify everything.

     

    So I checked the ram, psu, and then cd drive. Turns out the new CD drive worked great, and that the issue was with the current cd drive, as well as the cd drive I tested previously.

     

    Ruling out hardware requires the testing hardware to be in working order :hammer:

  12. I couldn't find any FX5500s that were PCI... although I did find a GeForce 6200 that is PCI, even is a whopping 256mb!!!! w000t

     

    reference: http://www.mwave.com/mwave/skusearch.hmx?SCriteria=AA71744

     

    Anyone see why this card wouldn't work?

     

    Any other cards that would be better/cheaper? I plan to use this as a 3rd monitor and don't care much about graphic quality (image needs to be nice though).

     

    I know nothing about PCI video cards..

  13. I'm looking for a video card that can be run under the NVidia video driver (since I already have a 7900GT), that is PCI, as well as has DVI output (either single or dual DVI).

     

    That's right, standard PCI card, NOT a PCI Express :unsure:

     

    Motherboard: MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra

  14. is your bios up to date

    when you turn on computer

    does it see your cd-rom

    and your harddrive

    - Bios is up to date. Computer sees both the hard drive, and the CD-Rom drive.

     

    Better try another CD/DVD drive if it won't boot from that one, or try a "cleaner" in it to make sure the optical "eye" is clean.

    - I've tried another CD drive/cable, however, the drive I tried was old kind of old. I could try changing out the drive/cable with a new one, hoping that it might work. I've already tried another IDE channel.

     

    I have another computer that I could format the hard drive on - that's not the problem. Once the drive is formatted, I won't be able to install XP, because it will come up with the disk boot failure message.
