  1. Its not hard to create a msn email address then use it purely for social networks, I did the same for face book, i dont use that email add for any other purpose than fb, i dont ever check that account for emails either.
  2. are you using the free version of 7, the RC? If you are then i wouldnt worry much as it is a beta version and wont be perfect. Also try using auslogics disk defrag its free and does a much better job.
  3. Like i mentioned before uv light kills algae, thats why they are used in pond filtration kits, Ive not changed the antifreeze in my cooling kit for a few months now, No algae! as for mixing your antifreeze with water WHY? F1 teams dont mix water with ther antifreeze because it does a much better job of cooling on its own.
  4. I notice that your drive needs a defrag, also the pit score is not the same every time, it goes up and down.
  5. No they should be the same, are you sure its not the product ID your looking at? also vista is a lot faster than xp, but you have to take into account that the machine with vista on it may be slightly better than the machine with xp.
  6. thats not a really noticable difference, all i can suggest is checking that your running at full power in win7's power options.
  7. 100% antifreeze= no algae Edit: a couple of uv lights will also stop the algae probs.
  8. Im not sure but dont them saphires slow down a bit when they start to get hot?
  9. Oh dear, I hope it didnt cost too much kram and i hope you have no probs sending it back, I decided to stop buying stuff like that off ebay a while ago, when i ordered a mobo that turned up doa, and the sellers response (There was nothing wrong with the bios when i shipped the item so it must have gone bad in the post) and further to that (No im not giving you your money back i get a lot of ppl like you trying to rip me off) and further response after i made a dispute with paypal who refunded my money (you just ******* wait im gonna sew you for every peney you have, or i might just come down there and smash your ****** face in) Ebays response (this seller is no longer a member of ebay) Did i learn? nope not that time but i did when i ordered a pentiumD and it came in an envolope the kind you send letters in, with no antistatic bag no padding nothing like that, just a plain old envolope with a crushed cpu in it
  10. If you only have the one drive i cant see why ur computer man only used 34Gb for the windows partition, the files you can safely move across would be all your personal files like vids music pictures all that stuff, to make windows save them to D: you will need to create folders on that drive and create shortcuts for them, also when saving files if you save them to D: windows should remember your choice and save them there in the future. If it were me id take it back to the computer guy and ask him if he can repartition the drive maybe 50/50.
  11. Have you actualy got 2 diff drives or just one with 2 partitions?
  12. If you wait a little longer on the new test explorer will resume, it may seem like its stop but it hasnt, as for thinking you have faulty mem have you run windows mem test from the dvd?
  13. Yea it seems to be happening alot lately.
  14. A lot of small businesses would welcome some one like you, It isnt cheap to get a website setup and published to the web by most of these companies that do it all for you. neither is it easy to do them selfs. If you are good at web design and you know how to host i reckon you could make a good income of it. even owning a web server can earn you money renting out web space, also consider this if you have your own website you can make money from advertising. A friend of mine earns a lot of money setting up music servers for private radio stations to broadcast over the internet. If you enjoy it why not make some money from it.
  15. ive never used max registry cleaner but i used to use auslogics boost speed b4 switching to linux and it used to do a fantastic job of keeping my computer clean also fixing registry errors.
  16. ??? Dont make sense really does it. I cant be QDR as it just dont add up, could be a software error, I would run 3dmark and compare the results with some others.
  17. Maybe the old psu blew the first board then the second or blew ram or cpu, leaking caps normally means over voltage.
  18. It sounds like its either a problem with the board or just incompatable with the memory but as it works with one stick id say its the board maybe.
  19. Lol it has improved, its a lot faster than it used to be as for rma ive never had that problem, ive only ever had 1 rma and that was a doa, the company i buy from deal with that not asus. I think they are rock solid i recomend them to all my customers and i havnt had a return yet, wish the same could be said for some of the other manufacturers ive tried, hell one year a certain manufacturer cost me over a grand replacing computers. And a doa from ebay but i doubt that worked before i bought it, i know the bloke was pretty reluctant to give me a refund.
  20. it would be better to download from here : http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Page...prer300-xp.aspx as for the make and model it should be written on the tower.
  21. Dont understand what you mean elkido, My p5q is perfect for over clocking it even makes it easy, Id like to see some oc a e8400 to 4.8GHz on a couple of the others without even having to worry about changing the ratio as the bios automaticly does it.
  22. the test shows that you need to update a few drivers also remove some tracking cookies and change your internet recieve buffer, if you click on each underlined problem pc pitstop will explain what it means and also how to fix. It gives good clear instructions just follow them and you should be ok. If you still have the following problem you are facing now after the fixes then come back here and we will be able to go thru some other options.
  23. I never had any problems using maxtor sata hard disks with the A8N, i never installed the network manager or firewall as its not needed, and i always installed the smart media bus drivers and never had any of the problems you pointed out. Sorry if you feel we are all a grumpy lot but you must agree that :QUESTION 1. Is there any way I can recover the data thats been reformatted with Windows XP installation over it? QUESTION 2. Will I ever buy another ASUS product and have this problem with the registry ever again. NO WAY. comes across as grumpy, Ive always used asus and never had any problems with the boards as for windows errors, Windows is normally to blame for the errors and like i said wen i have done the same thing in the past and wiped my data disk i felt that it was my fault as neither windows or asus is responsible for pressing the format button.
