Apple :: Ibook G4 Freezing Up & Asking For Restarts

Mar 7, 2010

I'm having issues with my Ibook G4. I'll start it, it'll run fine for a few minutes, and then freeze up to where no matter what I do, nothing happens, and then I restart it only to have the same thing happen again. I'm thinking it's a software issue, cause when I ran the hardware test, no issues showed up.

Apple :: Replaced HD Ibook G4 - On Installing OS X

Jan 18, 2009

I just replaced a failed hard drive on someone's iBook G4 and am now trying to install the operating system. I have the two CD's called "iBook G4 software install and restore." Using them, things go fine until it is time to "select a destination volume," where it doesn't show any volume to select. Running the apple hardware test off the cd shows that it detects the new hard drive, which is OK, and all the other hardware is OK too. So, what to check next? New hard drive is a seagate momentus 5400.3 ST9120822A.

Apple :: Best Version Of Windows To Run Under Boot Camp

Jun 30, 2009

Ever since I setup a Mac for a friend of mine, I've been very interested in the Mac and Mac OS X. It's fairly easy to learn and runs very well. Of course, I've been dealing with Windows for over 15 years, dating back to Windows 3.1. I also work with Windows 99% of the time since I mainly work on PCs as a PC tech.

Of course, Windows will run on a Mac using Boot Camp, but it seems like there's a whole variety of glitches when running Windows on a Mac using Boot Camp. Thus, I come up with the following question: which version of Windows runs best under Boot Camp? XP? 32 or 64-bit Vista? 32 or 64-bit Windows 7 RC? Do I need to wait for Snow Leopard to come out with better Boot Camp drivers? Do I even need to wait for Windows 7 to come out?

I am seriously looking at getting a 13" MacBook Pro and will most likely run some version of Windows on it using Boot Camp. Also, depending on the version, what amount of RAM is needed? I know that if you have 4GB or more RAM, you might as well run 64-bit Windows 7. Other than that, I'll probably run mostly Mac OS X on the MacBook Pro, but having some version of Windows on the MacBook Pro running under BootCamp would come in handy. Not sure if I'll do Parallels or Fusion.

I'm curious if the programs are identical, or if there is still a difference between the products? Ideally I'd like to have Office running in OSX, however if I have to I will run it in a VM. Mind you I'd like to avoid the headache of opening a VM to check my mail...

Dell :: OEM Version Of Vista

Feb 6, 2008

Well it's been about a year since vista came out, and I'm just getting bored with XP and have been tossing around the idea about getting an OEM version of vista. Does anyone with vista running on their machine have any feedback or impressions of the OS at this point as drivers have started to reach a more mature level? I don't know if it's just cuz i got some cash to burn or if my urge for a new OS is getting to me.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6 AMD Version Overheating

Dec 17, 2009

I have a problem with my HP dv6 1299ea laptop. I bought in in August, and was very satisfied with my purchase until lately, when it has been overheating. I have noticed that the fan is running almost non-stop for a while now, but didn't care too much, since I have been playing games and so on. But recently the fan is now running non-stop even when it's idle, or I just browse.

Today I installed speedfan, and it shows core temperature on idle of around 70 degrees C. Sometimes it even goes above 80, and that is without any games or complicated applications running - just browsing. In Medieval II Total war it stays above 80 constantly. Now, when I'm writting it shows between 65-70 degrees C. I see that speedfan does not support my motherboard, since it only shows core, no GPU, HDD, and nothing about the fan speed. Is there any other software that might help me identify and solve the problem?

I know AMDs tend to overheat, compared to Intels, but this just seems too much. I did some research, and saw that it is a known problem for HPs. I ordered a laptop cooler (Titan TTC-G4TZ), but will get it in about a week.

Dell :: Old Version Of Office On New Computer

Mar 18, 2009

I got the XPS M1530, 2.4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 64 bit Vista & Blu-ray writeable. Also got Office, but the version is 2007.

Is that the latest available? Seems odd to buy a new high end computer & get old software.

Also, they have the hard drive partitioned into C: & D: The D: drive is called RECOVERY & uses ~8GB. I couldn't find where this is described anywhere. Sounds important.

Dell :: XPS Laptop When Will Be Releasing A New Version

Nov 17, 2008

Does anyone have any idea when or if Dell will be releasing the XPS laptop with the Centrino 2 chip or if they will be releasing a new XPS laptop design all together as the current design has been around for well over a year now?

After hunting around for a solid performing laptop for home and office work for a month or 2 now, I have decided that the Dell XPS is probably the best machine I have looked at. It sounds to be well built, perform great, and has a premium warranty to back it up.

The only negative things I have heard about it is the hard drive is loud and the slot loading drive is also loud, does anyone know if these issues have been resolved and updated in the last few months?

So I go to buy the laptop and realise they donít have the new Centrino 2 chip! I assumed they would, however chip they only offer the Core Duo chip. I thought Dell was all about consumer customisation and they were able to get new technologies to the market faster because of their direct selling model? So why donít they have the new Centrino 2 chips?

I want to buy the 15Ē XPS, but donít think I can part with the best part of $2000 AUD without the machine having this latest chip. Even the new Sonyís now have the new Centrino 2 chip and they sell for around the same price for this XPS.

So my question is, does anyone have any idea when or if they will be releasing the XPS laptop with the Centrino 2 chip or if they will be releasing a new XPS laptop design all together as the current design has been around for well over a year now?

Sony :: Z (last Year Version) Won't Boot

Apr 24, 2010

I left my Z sitting too long not connected to power (in sleep mode) and the battery ran down. Now it will not boot up. It won't start off battery, off of power, off of power without battery -- it just blinks green, I can hear the DVD drive momentarily engage, there is a slight "beep" -- it tries this about three times before giving up and shutting down.

Dell :: Windows Full Version Or Refund

Oct 30, 2009

I currently have a 1645 on order and assuming I ever get it, I want to run Linux as the primary OS.

I would like to run vmware workstation with windows as a client. The reason behind this is that I primarily use the computer for work and need linux, but I need windows for a few things.

I understand that these days Dell simply ships a re-install disk if that much. I need a full version of windows to setup vmware. Does anyone know if the dell key can be used with a full version disk to do an install .....

Dell :: Which Synaptics Driver Version Has Pinch Zoom?

Mar 22, 2010

I have driver version 15.0.9 on Synaptics which has the two finger scrolling, three finger flick/press. But I've seen pictures of people with three finger drag(such as top/bottom/left/right of screen to open anything) and pinch zoom. I've tried a few driver versions and can't find which one has both.

So the question is, which driver version has all that I mentioned?

Acer :: NVIDIA Drivers Shootout 30 Version Tested

Dec 29, 2008

I present you a driver shootout, a test of 30 nVIDIA drivers, on a Dell Inspiron 1520 configuration, an iMAC and an Acer Aspire 6920G. First part, the one who handles the Windows XP drivers testing is over and published. The chart is composed in 2 parts, one with the results (points for 3DMarks and fps for Crysis games) and one with the information about it. When was launched, if it has WHQL, PhysX and PhysX driver included, CUDA support, GPGPU folding client, Issues, New Features, Original Products supported (if you have a desktop board and you want to keep the WHQL status active)... and a whole article about what does ForceWare means.

The article is in romanian, but the datas are in english, so everyone could understand (if there are enough request, I will translate it all in english). Anyway, have a good time on my website and be sure to visit it from time to time, the charts get updated every time a new driver will be released (and we will also include older models too).

Acer :: Old NAPP Version, ERecovery Cannot Be Installed In This Machine

Apr 14, 2009

I recently bought Acer Aspire 6920g laptop. Everything worked fine but the preinstalled system was a 32bit Vista Home. I decided to install 64 system so I installed Vista Business 64bit which I got from msdnaa. I installed all drivers, empowering technology etc but when I try to install erecovery, the installer starts and displays this message:

Erecovery can not be installed - 6. Software Disc.

That doesnt tell me much. I downloaded older version of erecovery(Acer eRecovery ManagementV2.0.2021) and tried to install it. I got this error:

Old NAPP version, eRecovery cannot be installed in this machine.

I checked on my friends 6920g who has fresh preinstalled system and I have the same exact empowering technology and im trying to install the very same eRecovery.
