  1. Need PC help bad

    Agreed , Defragging is really only needed for your paging files. With Vista and readyboot on flash drives, it's becoming not even needed for that. Samsung has actually just announed a new HDD with onboard flash memory to be coming in new notebooks, once this hybrid drive goes mainstream, defrag will be a distant memory.
  2. PC Gamers

    Any Gamers on site? My 2 boys are gaming online all the time and our bandwidth becomes very bottlenecked. I have all Cat6 patch wire ran with Broadband Premium. I figured running better quality wire and upgrading to the business level broadband would have solved the problem of lagging. Didnt' Anyhow, i just got the DLINK DGL 1100 and WOW!! What a differnce!! If your a gamer or have kids that do, you'll love it. I just did a test here, had 2 PC's online gaming, 1 xbox 360 online gaming, 2 xbox 360's streaming HD video, 1 PC downloading 2 huge files and NO LAG ! ! This router is well worth the money.

  4. Need PC help bad

  5. Need PC help bad

    Could be a multitude of things. Memory, Virus, Hard drive, PSU Boot into safe mode and see if problem persists. Run msconfig and disable all start up items, , Check the box the says "Hide all MS Itmes", then disable all services. Is problem still persisting? Run MemTest 86, possible corrupt RAM Open cmd prompt and run chkdsk Defrag HDD's Post back. If you know anything about Hijack this software, i'd start there. Run a cleaning tool freware CCleaner. Just throwing out a bunch of thoughts to try. But try to figure out if it's hard ware or software firstly, booting into safe mode, running all your AVG and spyware programs, disabling your startup and services should give you a good idea if it's a software/virus problem. Then check your memory, then your hdd's .

  7. Windows Vista Update

    Could try VCL Media player, it's free and will play almost any format. It's not appealing but it does the trick. I'd recommend TheatreTEK.
  8. Windows Vista Update

    If you just built a new system for gaming, WHY? pass of Vista and DX10?
  9. Windows Vista Update

    DMD, you can disable the UAC in the control panel under "Users". After about 4 installs, i've finally gotten Vista 32 to work well. All my devices are working well, i miss yahoo photo mail though, not compatible with IE7 or Vista. I really like the new interface for media center, which is the sole reason i upgraded. No driver issues so far, and my only software that doesn't work was Norton Ghost and Remote Data Backups, both of which are coming out with Vista updates.
  10. Should Gays Be Allowed to Adopt Children?

  13. Okay, so I have Windows Vista now...

    I've been using the speech recognition software bundled with Vista, and while it's cool, it seems to difficult to manage efficiently, i'd just as well type it as have to say it ten times to understand what i'm saying.

  24. NFL imposes the "Merriman" Rule

    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the NFL will no longer allow players who violate the league's substance abuse policy to make the Pro Bowl. The rule doesn't kick in until next season, so Shawne Merriman will still play in Honolulu on Saturday. It will also hit violators in the wallet, as many players have Pro Bowl incentives written into their contracts.
