RE: question...?
You just need a new PC. I didn't look long enough to find the complete specs, but your Dimension appears to be a PIII of some sort and all the old Dimensions XPS used a proprietary chassis. That means the only thing you can scrape from it would b...

RE: Any WoW players?
I went through a WoW phase about a year ago, for a couple months shortly after it was released. Assuming they don't delete characters of non-current accounts, I should still have a level 37 troll rogue on Kil'Jaden. Maybe some day I will resubsc...

RE: database help
Hi, You don't need an additional column in your database table for this -- you can compute it at any time, from what's already there. Use SQL functions datediff(), dateadd() and getdate(). The query might look something like this: select DateRegis...

RE: Different RAM
Hi, While generally true, there's nothing magic about placing components on a card rather than soldering them to the board. There have been some motherboards that had a full-blown separate graphics chipset and a set amount of video RAM incorporat...

RE: BEST website builder - designer
DJKAL: Frontpage seems to be popular among persons with those requirements -- "drag and drop", no technical skills needed to create relatively complex sites. The drawback ( besides being called a n00b :P ) is that it works best when your host supp...

RE: graphics card?
You can use S-video output on most cards, but that has very limited applications and usually isn't what people want to do when they ask about dual head -- so it wasn't mentioned.

RE: graphics card?
Absolutely, provided you have a dual head card. MX 4000 chipset is capable of it, but not all third party manufactured cards include the second connector. If yours does, it will have both VGA and DVI connectors (or two of either). If required, you...

RE: SOLVED: (frustration no more) total frustration
CookieRevised gives good advice. Remove / disconnect non-essential hardware, such as modems, sound cards, printers and so forth. If you can get XP installed that way, you might even get lucky and not have any problems after putting it all back tog...

RE: More RAM..faster game?
As [MR] said, more RAM never hurts (to a certain point). Going from 512MB to 1GB usually makes a very nice difference. However, you didn't say what kind of graphics card you have. There are all sorts of Nvidia GPU-based cards that have been offere...

RE: poem by an indian poet!
Tagore himself translated a number of his poems in English. Given that they were his poems and he was translating them himself (and creating some original uniqueness in the process), that could be close enough. Take a look at this: http://www.sacre...

RE: poem by an indian poet!
You can't go wrong with Rabindranath Tagore. As to finding a specific poem, I second Ddunk on recommending Google: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=poem+Rabi ndranath+Tagore

RE: tell me if they can do that.
With few exceptions, a private business is allowed to require whatever they want as a condition of doing business with you. Why would you expect (or want) the government to be involved in that? As you say, some places have asked you for the ID and...

RE: Graphics Card
It isn't required, but might not be a bad idea to uninstall the driver for the old card before you remove it. Look for one listed in Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. If it's not there, don't worry about it. Other than that, turn the computer ...

TylerG, I apologize in advance if this suggestion insults your intelligence, but we all sometimes do things in a hurry and make silly oversights. ;) It's what you said about only one person being able to connect -- which, I assume, included you and...

RE: Help!! // How to find out admin password on Windows XP
The solution to your problem is in psychology rather than technology. Instead of hacking your mom or begging for administrator privileges "just because", find some software that 1)won't run otherwise and 2)your mother would be inclined to let you ...

Hi, While this probably is the last thing you want to hear at this time, your sister's boyfriend sounds quite intelligent and nice. I don't think he is your enemy, nor that you should try to make him one. It would appear that he thinks you did som...

You can turn this feature off by selecting the "Always On" power scheme in Control Panel's Power options. Under all other power schemes, Windows XP does what it wants. There is also this utility that lets you control it manually: [url]http://ww...

RE: DVD Player Help
Many region-free players do not have a built-in video converter (although some do). If yours does not, you need to have a PAL-capable (multi-standard) TV in order to view PAL-encoded discs -- or a separate converter. This is a different issue from ...

RE: Server Problems
That would mean you don't have write permission to the folder on the server that you are trying to upload to. In most cases, there will be no way for you to fix this. You might want to look around on the server for another folder to upload to ("up...

RE: My New Laptop Processor Question
This is normal. Processors designed for laptops include a feature that adjusts their actual clock speed depending on what you are doing / how busy the computer is. This helps conserve power when running on battery (and manage heat, at all times).

No, it's not especially good. If you have a choice, get Nero Ultra Edition.
