• Re: Windows XP SP3 boot up problem

    Found another temporary solution. When I have a USB Flash drive inserted, it boots up, albeit with some graphical "static" until I get into Windows desktop. Found that solution here: The strange thing is that I have never had this problem before. Perhaps

  • Windows XP SP3 boot up problem

    Dear HotHardware Forums: 1. Yesterday I opened up my rig and used an air compressor and hose to clean out the dust. I am quite positive I didn't hit anything with the nozzle when I was spraying. I doubt compressed air could damage any circuit parts, but maybe I am wrong? 2. I took 3 hard drives out. I got one of those HDD docking-station-type things

  • Re: New computer, problems when installing XP

    Thanks for your help guys. I figured it out last night. The problem was the BIOS. The GA-H55M-UD2H that we got is rev. 1 and had a really old version F4. When I updated to F10 (downloaded from the Gigabyte website) via QFlash, XP installed like a charm.

  • New computer, problems when installing XP

    Dear Hothardware: I recently built a new computer myself (DIY). Everything seems to be plugged in correctly. Here's the setup: - Intel i3 540 - Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H (supports 1.5V says the manual) - 2x2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 CMXGX3M2A1600C9 (1.6V relevant?) - OCZ Agility 2 SATAII SSD - No GPU (i3 540 has integrated GPU right?) The problem is

  • Re: Wireless data Transfer help

    The way I would go about it is simply remove the hard drive from one of the computers and install it in the other computer. If you're not comfortable with that, consider getting an external hard drive then use it as a vehicle to transfer stuff from one to another.

  • Re: DDR1 Question Plz Help !

    Super Pi is just a simple program you use to put strain on your system. The reason you want to do that after an overclock is to test its stability. I.e. if your computer crashes, then it's not stable.

  • Re: OCD (Obsessive-compulsive disorder)

    i think i might have it too then. i thought it was just my personality (i always thought i was a perfectionist of some sort), but OCD seems to explain my behavior much better. indeed i always seem to have unfinished business. the only problem is that it's not always homework.
  • Re: ATI CrossFireX - 4-Way 3870 CrossFire In Action

    Oh lord, this is just overkill. I'm interested in seeing how much power this thing draws. Not the smallest ecological footprint I would imagine. BTW, does anyone know what the approximate power savings are if one drops from 1.30 volts to 1.00 volts (on the CPU)? Because that's exactly what I did.

  • Re: looking for data recovery software

    These people are getting more and more clever. Before it used to be open and shut cases. Now I have to use some serious judgment. Of course we could just delete anything that looks suspicious, but I don't want to do that.

  • Re: black screen .. please help

    If the HDD you're using has a pre-installed version of Windows, that might be the problem. When I built my new rig, I had to install a fresh copy of Windows for it to work. I had Windows pre-installed, but it seemed that the new hardware didn't "recognize" it or something like that.
