  1. Yes GREAT chart THANKS Any of those would do? Now I am definetly gonna start reading up on this area.
  2. Ok, there is G & B..Im gonna buy mine today. Which one should i get The main internet line is into the desktop ( the one im on).. I need a router so that other computers ( Laptops) can get acces in and around my house. The cheapest possible I remember along time ago i read up on G & B but i never really payed attention. So any reccomendations are greatly appreciated
  3. Wow, Ya i just googled on how to replace it Im just gonna do it myself..I thought i would had to take the thing apart. Its just remove battery..take screws off, move thinger unplug IDE cable...REPLACE thanks
  4. Well i saw the BFad thread here so I would like to say I got a Toshiba 60 GB 512 DDR-ram Celeron M ( so built in wifi) for $200..I found a way around the AO HELL catch I only found out the night b4 BF...So i speed to Circuit City and spent the night ( i use to make fun of all the gamers that camp out for games and stuff) I say it was worth the $200...Its not like i'll be doing gaming ( not a gamer) so this will be pretty darn fine for me. Well How much would it cost to up the HD for a laptop ( I can do a desktop,but i dont want to mess with the laptop)
  5. OH man.... I am truly sorry for your loses... I wish i could help more, but all i have now is my prayers
  6. Yes do as i have done for many years ( well about 7 months) keep a shortcut to that hidden folder on your desktop. AFter every so often I just double click and delete the content. I also keep a shortcut to the Temp. Internet files folder ( also hidden.) I was also amazed the first time i went and cleaned this out when it had about 4 gigs of crap in there. For instance if you download an attachment via your email and just "open" it you are really saving it to that TEMP folder, and so on with any othert type of file ( music, etc.) ~Jose
  7. The model # at walmart is ZE2308WM, and its on sale for $398 and im wondering if it is just a stupid celeron type laptop ( good for nothing but web surfing) or something that you can do a little extra on
  8. Its alright if you dont mind reading "noob" stuff. It is mainly directed at entry level issues, but i see most intermediate/higher level people having it. 1. for when they help lower level people, and it is good to get away from teh PC once and a while
  9. Nero Start Smart> Copy & Back Up ( safe with 2 disk)>Burn Image to disk or if you open normal Open It up> Choose "CD ROM ISO">After clicking New>Click Recorder>Burn Image....SELECT .ISO and BURN
  10. Yes these symptoms sound like a fried motherboard issue, but I am not 100% sure as that is off my head. I will try to look more into this, but i am sure the GEEKS will beat me to this...or maybe not
  11. I tried the one from softpedia, if it doesnt work I will have him download this thanks matt
  12. : win 32 andvat.irc.flood : *and vat.irc.flood Its one of those look im hot click here the idiot clicked it four times... I remember removing a IRC virus before i went idle from the internet, but I cant find my .txt with the fix for it. Im not sure if it was when i was on here or g4
  13. Well I cant go over until later to mess with it. Ya I will see if he has the install disc
  14. Ok, I feel like an idiot for ignoring one of the first steps to troubleshooting an connectivity problem. Stop anti-virus/Firewall or any other program which can mess with connectivity. Well I didnt know he had norton internet security, but I should have asked instead of spending 1 hour fixing his computer. Ok, It was weird I went to the command prompt, and checked that it said he had an ip address/gateway/subnet mask which he did. Then I went to "network connections" and it said the connection was "connected". So I was wondering why wasnt the internet working properly. Well I had to re-configure the modem, b/c he had pressed the "restart" button, but I couldnt even get into the GUI, which was really weird. After an hour of looking/trying/messing with stuff I saw Norton's little Task Bar icon, I disabled it for 5 minutes and what do you know. I was able to re-configure the modem, and he was able to access the internet. My question is has any one else had this issue? If so How do i keep norton running (norton internet), and keep the internet access up, because I am sure he doesnt want norton disabled. I would have looked and played with norton but it was 12 in the morning.
  15. Nice, Thank You I thought so but its been so long I had to make sure

  17. Thank you guys I am live and kicking now So yes i t may have been a video driver error. I never knew of a video driver doing those things, guess you learn a new thing every day. I was right no auto-protect b/c i was in safe mode. The issue has been solved ( system restore) and then the link came up, so I am going to look for update for all my devices. Problem: Windows restarts after logging in ( the system logs into and shows the desktop with processes starting, then shuts off randomly). The time it took to restart varied, and no definite answer is available. Caused Problem: Possible installtion of Kaspersky Beta 6 Solution: System Restored, and updating drivers Notes: *None at the moment ( another one to keep in my little log) ( i need to find it though ) Thank you guys
  18. video driver you say... I suppose i will grab my manual for my MOBO ( to see where i need to get it) The reason i believe its a trojan/virus is b/c my Norton Auto-Protect is off ( could be due to being in safe mode, i cant check in regular b/c it doesnt load in time), as well as email scanning. I have ran AVAST PRO Norton 2003 PRo McAfee Online Scanner and nothing has come up. I am about to try a good ole sytem restore , and if that doesnt fix it, i will be back in safemode trying to find the video driver
  19. update below in code C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\smss.exe should it bere there? I am looking to see if that is the possible infection Ok,well when i try to boot my PC up it will go to log-in screen, and after logging in after a few seconds the computer restarts. I am currenlty in "safe mode with networking" scanning with my Norton, and if nothing comes up AVAST PRO. What i need is your opinions on what i am about to say To my belief it is a virus on my computer due to the fact that it will load up perfectly to log-in screen, and even load desktop ( until it restarts). This takes away the possibility of a HD issue. Hmmm just my luck, 9/10 months no computer, 2 months after being back another computer issue ( last one wasnt my fault, MOBO just fried). Well Can I get your opinions on what i said above THANKS ~Jose P.S it is so fun when o nly half of this form fits on the monitor
  20. grrr school monday see what i can do O crap......... ( nothing with this)
  21. does FLASH 123 have a demo? I will mess with it if i have time 2nite
