  1. It´s good, the quote for the walmart link says it will connect to both, I was just wondering if they were the same or not, that´s all. I´m purchasing the one from wallmart as it will help me extract files from a laptop hard drive or a desktop hard drive and I think that´s a tool that comes in handy when you least expect it.
  2. Thanks a lot for the replies everyone 1 last rookie question, is the IDE/PATA connector of a laptop hard drive the same as the IDE/PATA connector of a desktop hard drive?
  3. Hello everyone, it´s been a while since I made this thread. I started with Jcreator (Java) in order to get my feet wet and bought myself a copy of java for dummies in order to guide me as a first timer on this. Though a bit slow due to other obligations I´ve managed to do some simple things and I´m looking forward to keep learning this as a hobby. I would welcome any other suggestions that you may have for this coding noob. Thank you all for your advice
  4. One hard drive is an ATA/IDE from an old Thinkpad P4 laptop, the other is from an HP Pavilion dv4-1435dx it was really sad to see this last one fail it had a problem with the screen after a year which was past its warranty, and although the computer seems to power on just fine, it´s impossible to see or distinguish anything at all within those random color waves.
  5. I have a couple of Laptop Hard Drives from where I need to extract my stuff (my laptop died so I cannot use a USB flash drive to get them) and I was wondering if anyone here would have recommendations for a Laptop Hard Drive Adaptor Kit to do this job.
  6. I thought there would be a problem since the standard memory for the motherboard is DDR3 and the other one is a GDDR2 PCI video card
  7. A friend of mine is selling me this motherboard at a very affordable price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128420 and I have this old PCI video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130289 I was wondering if I could put them together to build a desktop computer since the motherboard has no onboard video.
  8. What software would you recommend for this task? (whether free or paid) I plan to combine at least 3 videos into 1, edit and eliminate some parts from one of them and then combine it with the other 2 videos.
  9. I think you guys may have been right on the power supply thing, it doesn't even turn on now. I tried it turn it on one more time to see if I could check the brand of hard drive on the bios, and it started to take a while to even show the intel logo, so I pressed the power button again to turn it off, and when I pressed it back to turn it back on, it went dead it doesn't even turn on now I'm going to bed, I'll check back tomorrow.
  10. My boot start up menu is configured as: CD/DVD Drive Floppy Drive Hard Drive but int the boot menu the hard drive appears as "none"
  11. This morning when I turned on the machine I got an error that says: "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER" I got the recovery disk and proceed it to insert it and while it seemed to start loading it suddenly stopped and gave me this message instead: "Cannot find hard drive" "Confirm if hard drive is correctly connected" I proceeded to open the case and check the cables and connections from and to the hard disks and everything seemed to be fine, after this I decided to try a tool such as winternals and see if it would load at all, which it did, however in the "my computer" options of the program none of the 2 hard disks showed up, as if the computer wouldn't have any installed. After that I tried the program Gparted, but in this case the program didn't finish loading and instead it gave the message: "isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards..." and it just froze there At this point I'm not sure if it's the hard disk or not, I thought from the beginning and from the use of the winternals tool that the hard disk may be the issue, but Gparted didn't even complete its loading at all, let alone display info as if no drives were installed on my computer like the first program did, and that last detail also bothers me, if the problem was only the C drive, why didn't winternals show my second drive? could it be something else like the mobo? Anyone knows by any chance what could be the problem?
  12. Thx a lot for replying shanenin, my mistake for not explaining myself better, but I have actually gone through the steps of going to network connections >> local area connection >> an so on until reaching the option "Obtain an IP address automatically" then restarting my computer. My provider is not verizon but earthlink instead. I thought about trying it on my own, and change this router from PPPOE to DHCP as well, since after doing that as you suggested the last time the router I had problems with started to work, and it's still up until now. This router than I'm trying to setup is also an linksys, but it's not the same router that I asked help for when I started this thread. It's a WRT54G a couple of years older I think, as a matter of fact the page for this router is 192.168.1.1 while the one that I'm using is 192.168.2.1 not sure if that makes any difference as to how to set it up though, but I will try the commands you suggested.
  13. Bump I'm trying the guidelines provided here on another WRTG4 router that I found, I manage to enter to the router page and change the settings to DCHP but although it says it was successful it doesn't connect to the web. Anyone has an idea what else could be the problem?
  14. Like so many people I use delicious for my bookmarks, but because of this I've been forced to stay in an older version of Firefox since the delicious add-on has bugs for the 3.0 version. Over time I have accumulated so many bookmarks that I don't want to lose them, which prompts me to make a few questions: Does anyone currently using the latest version of Firefox know by any chance if the bugs for that add-on were already fixed? Do you think there's actually a better service similar to delicious on the web? Does anyone have experience with one? and if so, is it possible to migrate all your delicious bookmarks to it? Is there anyway to actually backup all your delicious bookmarks without the use of scripts or locating it somewhere else on the web, but instead saving it to your hard drive? Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
  15. I don't plan to stream video from cable service to a computer. I want to be able to display any video from the computer to the tv, including local video from the hard drive, hulu videos and youtube videos.
  16. or maybe something like this is better? http://www.compusa.com/applications/Search...mp;Sku=O38-2034 http://www.compusa.com/applications/search...49&csid=_21 I'm kinda shooting in the dark on this topic.
  17. how about something like this? http://www.amazon.com/Grandtec-Ultimate-20...r/dp/B00006B70W I would like for the tv to display the same streaming videos being watched in the computer at that moment.
  18. well I wasn't aware it was to bring in the tv signal instead of sending it out, it's the first time I ever bothered to buy one of these so I'm still a bit confused on what to look for, the TV and computer must be separated about 25 feet, but I would like the TV to display that video that is being played on the PC at that moment. The rig which I'm planning to use for this does not have TV-out capability so I'm not sure to what extent would the VGA to TV converter work.
  19. Is something like this ok? http://www.buy.com/prod/artec-t14a-mini-us.../203267530.html
  20. I don't plan to stream HD just normal video
  21. ... for a good TV tuner in order to be able to stream video from my PC to the TV, but I"m not sure what exactly I should be looking for. The computer from where I plan to stream the video is a bit outdated, motherboard has PCI slots instead of PCI express, and maximum RAM for the machine is 1 GB, with this in mind what option would be better? a PCI card with AV output to install on the rig or a portable USB-to-AV output device similar to a flash drive? does anyone know which option is better?
  22. I just got access back to the D: drive again, not sure how I tried my computer once again and it was possible to gain access!
  23. np monsterenergy22 and thanks once again for your help the log is empty I get this message instead:
  24. here's the new log of notepad: Delitor by wng_z3r0 Files to delete: ************************** "d:\autorun.inf" END Files to delete: ************************** Files remaining after deletion: ************************** END of file: ************************** I still can't access the drive D:
