    quick open

    Just pin them to the start menu so your desktop will not look stupid. :beer:
  2. I use the best syntetic oils only becouse of that.Now I have 3K since last change and the oil is still gold. You know god made the turbo lag (s40 has a lowcompression turbo there is no lag at all) to give the v8 a chance.
  3. 4 cylinder engines dosnt end up at the POS Neon you know.Most European cars are not like that with a 2litre engine.Also European cars are more sophisticated and way ahead of the american ones so even a 1.2litre engine will run for 150K.Performancewise also up to par.In fact my car in my sign beats all the v6 and up to par with them v8's.This baby running a 4cylinder 1.9litle turbo up to 160Mph.Doing 70 MPh when the engine revs 2500.Yo Bruce I dont wann argue with you over this B/C I like you otherwise but you have to get updated on this one.
  4. This is a pure ignorant statemant Bruce.
  5. 30 years of driving but you have stuck in that era.I'm sorry to say this Bruce.If you put the cheapest oil into your car like you say you do for $15 you totally deserve that you have to go to change it that often.Anyway the quality of the oil is more important than the fact how often do you change it.Try to poor in some cooking oil mate and change it every 200Mile.Hows that for a rule? Please tell me you are not one of them people checking oil level while the engine is running. Earlier you did mention that a 4 cylinder engine is small and revs higher RPM.You probably meant that the smaller displacement not the less cylinder. A quality oil change will run you like this.$50 for the oil +$12 for filter +$20 for the monkey who does the job and asking for the cars manual and trying to overfill the engine. Only the conventioal oil has to be changed every season. I hope you wont take it too personal Bruce.
  6. Myspace=metrosexual....Oh wait....No such a thing as Metrosexual.
  7. Turn off eyecandy,moded desktop.These have a great impact on the pit test's video.
  8. On the pit test it should show 0%.If it is more than that it would mean that something is eating up resources and needs attention.Yours being -2% means that even the usual backgroundwork on the CPU is not existant and your CPU is running just fine ready to rock.
  9. Do not bother yourself over that one.It is only means that some DLL's are turned off which is a good thing usuly.Some people here does it on purpose to make the most out of their system.
  10. That engine pushing 650HP at 5000RPM only.Low RPM is very benefical running on the endurance race also has to make far less stops for fuel since the diesel engines do burn fuel more efficiently. Anyway the car has won the Florida's 12hours of sebring and not the le mans but thats the next one it might will win.
  11. I would shut off these then see if there is still something. C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe Realplayer C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug\mdm.exe Debugger C:\Program Files\Logitech\Video\LogiTray.exe Logitech ImageStudio C:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exe Office XP speech C:\WINDOWS\system32\regsvc.exe Remote Registry C:\Program Files\Diskeeper Corporation\Diskeeper\DkService.exe C:\Program Files\Logitech\Video\FxSvr2.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\LVCOMSX.EXE
  12. I dont think that it would make any diference to get the modem yourself but a waist of money.
  13. I dont think the memory is running dual chanel.You should have either 2 or 4 stick and they have to be maching pairs.I would use the 1GB stick for now just to see if there is a conflict.Also Mcafee is a resource killer and with all that running process in the background might have some impact even on that CPU.Anyway in short I think it is your mismached memory that couses the problem.
  14. Not much to improve the score but if you just would put more memory into your system I'm sure in real life you will see improvements.
  15. Here is your card: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/se...CMP=OTC-FROOGLE For this money you can get another fan with maybe with a HS but then again does it worth it? Might as well pick up one of the AGP from this list if you prefer this price range. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....&SubCategory=48
  16. 2. Is the motherboard burnt out or processor or is there something else i can check. Well you can check out if the board is shorted out on the backside to the case.You might have a screwbank on a wrong place touching the mobo.
  17. Try to turn the default view back and see what happens.
  18. I hope it is stable but looks like the internet got scewed up and that would indicate that it is not.Nice going. :beer:
  19. Screenshot looks ok to me.mey be the resolution is ot the best and it dosnt show?Anyway i have this cooler on my 9800 pro. http://www.frozencpu.com/vid-29.html I dont use any of the fan on this unit but have this one sticked underneeth it. http://www.frozencpu.com/slf-02.html Also these are good as I hear. http://www.frozencpu.com/vid-37.html
  20. The best would be if you would give us a test results on the pit. http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress/howto1.asp
  21. On this test the CPU load should show 0% on all PC.If you have some program then you need to turn that of during the test.If you have nothing running then having 22% of load on this test might mean that you have some nastyness on your machine.
  22. It is rare find not too many of these are there anymore in any shape.You have to be a fan tho to go for it.
  23. I also say the better if you join one of them VW forums like this: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zeromain?id=1 The transporter is one of the most reliable car has ever made.It could be twice the age you posted and still running flawless.Before you buy you wanna check out things so you'd better go to a forum where you will find actual people with real experience and not like the one who says a 25 year old car just can not be reliable.You go to a garage they can check things out for ya but first you wanna know what to look for.Good luck.
  24. When it comes to PSU you can not afford to be cheap.I dont print the $$ home either but hey PSU is what makes thing alive or dead. Anyway here is some I'm sure most member would recommend but also there will be some for less and still works fine. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....ory=1550&DEPA=0 http://www.frozencpu.com/scan/se=Power%20S...enu_search.html Note that here the price is in CAD and I dont know if they are actually shipping to US. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?minorcatid=1066
