Re: Firefox 3

FF will start where you left off (in start options).

I like FF best, FF2 was getting porky with memory usage. Hope it'll be better. That was the original point to FF, lean and fast, but it went...

Re: P5K EPU continual BSOD

did you run a burn-in test using Memtest 86+?
I make sure I do this on all builds and upgrades and overclocks.
And I do mean allowing it to run for at least 12 hrs.

Re: Using Zeners to Reduce Fan Speed

PSUs are pretty well regulated. Simple series resistance is all you really need.
KISS principle is best here. IMO, 50 Ohm resistors are a good start for voltage drops. Put them in series or parallel...

Re: Odd noise, apparently from motherboard.

Had an ECS motherboard that squealed horribly. Eventually got rid of it. Suspected inductors on that one.
I did have an SMC router which hissed out of the box. It crapped out when subjected to a...

Re: Firefox and Broadband users, READ THIS!!

I've noticed the exact same symptoms as those you've described.
Hmmm.

I think I'll revert to 1.5x or even 1.08 for the old systems with 256MB. Just so the systems don't bog.

Re: Firefox and Broadband users, READ THIS!!

Anyone else notice how each new release of Firefox seems to be getting bloated and slower?
It takes ~60MB of RAM to view a webpage, and 60MB for each open tab!
I have only a few extensions/add-ons...

Re: What do you use for drive copying?

Paragon Hard Disk Manager 8 SE.
It was a freebie download courtesy of a German PC Mag.
Might still be available.
I don't think it works properly on WinXP MCE.

Keep in mind, some old OSes and...

Re: Intermitten Not posting problem

First, mixing brands of RAM is a no no usually. Do you have a matching pair?

Re: Bizarre NT4 network problem

Don't routers assign IP addresses based on a set time grant?
So if the wrong IP/mask/gateway data is assigned to the NT4 box, then power cycling should only cause it to see the same box on the...

Re: AMD or Intel??....

The 570 SLI chipset isn't optimal if you have dual SLI video card gaming in mind.
I believe the 16 PCIe pathways are split 8 each in SLI mode, not 16 and 16.
Fine if you're only going to use 1...

Re: AMD or Intel??....

I don't think any of the reasons given in the example above of cost applies. You're talking about cost for a S-939 architecture, that's no longer current.
If you had to spend $460 on a cpu for your...

Re: Which card??

Go with any card for the AGP than use the onboard video.
Almost all onboard video that shares memory will slow down the memory bus dramatically.

All you have to do is run some benchmarks to...

Re: Looking for good backup software.

Tell them tough luck, get educated.
I hate the excuse of "I don't know how."
Then learn how.
Often they won't because they can pawn it off onto someone else to do.

Try SyncBack, it's free.

Re: AMD or Intel??....

You must be referring to Willamette cores. The Northwood core is pretty cool running. I have only one P4 system, a 1.8 GHz Northwood w/512K L2.

Re: Too many Video Cards

Delete all of the entries, reboot. Does the board have a built-in video option?
Disable it in the BIOS. I assume it does since there's a 'm' before the 800.

IIRC, you can't run the built-in video...
