Acer :: Aspire 5672 WLMi Drivers

I'm trying to find the correct drivers for the above laptop. I found this thread How To's: Acer Aspire 5672 , but it seems some of the links no longer work. This system had XP Home originally and the HDD died. I installed a new HDD and want to install XP Pro, have disk, and do away with all the Acer stuff. I've already performed a clean install once before of XP Pro, but wasn't able to find the correct drivers for several pieces of hardware. I'm in the USA. Is there even an Acer USA? I can't seem to find the drivers at Acer. I have my original backup disk that I created using Acer erecovery and an XP pro install disk.

Acer :: Aspire 1410 Intel SU3500 With Online Flash Video And Multi-tasking
I just made a purchase of a 1410 for about $340 with an Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 and 2GB ram. I plan to do a clean of install Windows 7 32-bit once I receive the laptop. However one thing concerns me, how does the laptop fare with online Flash video streaming? I'm thinking it will do fine with 360p and 480p streaming, but is it able to run 720p or even 1080p smoothly? Also, is this model able to multi-task somewhat? I'm not looking for anything extreme, but I'm wondering more about running multiple tabs in a browser or running Office apps with internet surfing, etc. If not playable out of the box, are there tweaks to get HD flash playback smooth? I've heard of the new Adobe Flash 10.1 helping out with performance somewhat, but I'm wondering if it's a long wait before a cheap (sub-$400) netbook/sub-notebook can stream HD flash well that isn't an ION with Atom. I've heard great reviews on the 1410 and like the purchase, but was just curious about some of the performance situations stated above.

Acer :: DXVA & MPC Video Quality On 1410/Intel 4500
I've been encoding a lot of my DVDs to h264 using Handbrake for traveling, and I have my 1410 set up to do DXVA h264 decoding with Media Player Classic HC (on Windows 7 Pro RTM x64). I used this guide to set up DXVA: [url] The DXVA offloading works well, and I get around 5-10% CPU usage on Task Manager. My issue is that the video quality looks poor compared with using Windows Media Player 12. H264 MKVs look great on WMP, but sometimes they stutter a little, CPU usage is around 10-20%, so I know it's doing some kind of DXVA of its own. After reading this thread, I figured out my problem somewhat: Is there anyone that can play this H264 clip on Timeline SU3500 without 100% CPU load? What I wanted to know is this: has there been any development in fixing the h264 deblocking bug with MPC-HC and DXVA? I'd like to use MPC-HC for my MKV viewing, because that plays video the smoothest, and it handles the audio and subtitles of several anime series that I have. Just some background on my setup: I'm using a 1410 with the dual-core SU2300, Windows 7 Pro x64, latest version of MPC-HC, latest version of Haali Splitter, latest Intel 4 Series drivers (version 1986), and the ffdshow x64 audio-only filters. I'm also using the Divx 7 Tech Preview for thumbnails and improved performance on WMP.

Dell :: Installing Video Drivers Straight From Intel...Impossible
I periodically check Dell's site for updated video drivers but they are always sooo old. (Dell's driver-Version 7. something, Intel's-Version 11.something) Intel's site is much more up to date. Anyway, I'll download the Intel drivers and attempt to run the installer. It'll extract all the files but then close and show a message stating that the driver isn't "validated" to run on this computer and that I must get driver updates from my pc maker. Why are others able to install the drivers, even on other Dell systems? Is it a business notebook thing due to the need for stable system images?

Dell :: Intel Centrino WiMAX 6250 Driver
I followed a couple threads on here on how to format and reload everything from scratch. It has worked perfectly and I'm much more happier without the Dell bloatware. That said, the only issue (not sure if it's really an issue) that I'm having is with the WiMAX 6250 driver. I downloaded the latest drivers from here: They aren't even listed on Dell's website (not that I would use Dell's over Intels anyway). The wifi and everything seems to be working fine. However, when I look under device manager, it's the only one that has an "!" on it. It says that the driver isn't loaded. Again, I don't know this is really a problem since it's working, but I just wanted to make sure this won't hurt me down the road or if anyone else knows how to fix it.

Problem is, the device is working fine as far as windows is concerned - it is detected, I can connect using windows networks screen. But ControlPoint Connection manager does not see it.

Dell :: M1330 Bios A15 + Latest Intel Drivers = Dead Video
Was having an issue on bios A12 (I think it was) with the brightness (function keys were not adjusting it properly), so updated the bios to A15 and the latest intel drivers as advised. (have intel, not nvidia). Now the screen on boot is either blank or with only blue lines. Can hear it booting into windows so the system on the whole seems fine. Have got it working successfully on an external monitor via the vga port. I have tried to reapply the A15 bios and reinstall the intel drivers but not changed anything. The display properties in windows shows the laptop monitor as stuck on 640x480 and low colours. screen is off on 640x480 and if upped to the only other option 800x600 gives blue lines.

Dell :: Install Intel GM45 Express Chipset Driver For XP Pro Configuration
I'm in the process of creating an XP Pro operating system install for my new Inspiron 1545, on a new SATA hard drive (taking out the original SATA hard drive from Dell with Vista preinstalled to use as separate bootup opsys which I have to reinstall to zap all the bloatware later). Things were going really really well (I thought) with setting up my new drive with XP and I got past the problem that bites most folks (SATA hard drive not being recognized by XP install), by switching the drive in BIOS to ATA mode b4 doing the install. I got XP completely installed & activated AOK, with only a few minor wrinkles which I was able to figure out. Applied a few simple quick tweaks to XP to make it easier for me to use (disabling autoplay, killing the search dog, setting folder views, removing stuff I don't use like Windows messenger, MSN, etc). Then I went to install all of the necessary Dell drivers from the website for the 1545 for (in order) Intel GM45 Chipset, Video, Ethernet, Dell Quickset, Wireless, Sound, Card reader, and Alps touchpad. I had figured that stuff out already and had all the drivers copied over to the new PC ready to go .....

Error Messages When Speakers / Headphones Are Not Connect
I am having a rather strange issue which, although is not hindering the use of my computer, is still something that I would like to try and resolve. I purchased a Dell Inspiron 545 about a month ago (first week of Oct. 09). Given that Windows 7 wasn't available at that time to the general public, my new computer came with Vista Home Premium. My computer does not currently have an aftermarket sound card; I only have the OEM one that came with the computer. Also, I currently do not have any speakers or any other external audio devices that are currently hooked up to my computer. While I was using Vista I never had any problems or warning prompts appear when using audio programs like iTunes even though I didn't have any external audio devices connected to my computer. No problem there. When I received my copy of Windows 7 Pro I decided to do a clean install on my computer. After installing 7 I went through and manually installed all of the audio drivers that were on my computer when I received it from Dell (note: although the audio drivers were the same the re-installed ones were the updated versions designed for Win 7). I didn't use the driver disk that came with my computer though, because of the hassle of using those disks. Instead I manually downloaded the drivers that I needed from the Dell support page. After re-installing all of the drivers, updates, and programs on Win 7 I noticed the following: every time that I opened an audio program like iTunes I would receive a warning prompt claiming that "iTunes has discovered a problem with your audio configuration; audio may not operate properly". Furthermore, I have a Sony voice recorder that I use for school and the program for the recorder gives a similar error message claiming that "the file cannot be played back; check your audio drivers or operating system". In addition, this error message prevents me from editing any of the voice files I have saved on my computer. But the strange thing is that all of these error messages disappear when I plug in my headphones. The messages go away, I am allowed to edit my voice files, and the sound works great. As I said above, the audio drivers I currently have installed are identical to those that originally came with my computer. Given that I had never received similar error messages when not having speakers or headphones hooked up to any of my past computers or to my current computer before I installed Windows 7, I am assuming that the operating system is the culprit. Has anyone else experienced this problem and if so, do you know how to fix it?

Android :: Video Out - Support Additional Bluetooth Profiles
I know that as of now it's not possible, and the hacked usb port is still pretty useless. But as far as I know, with the VDP profile on Bluetooth it should be theoretically possible with more (relatively) simple software hack. As I understand Bluetooth profiles, they are essentially software drivers for the hardware, and most Android devices support Bluetooth 2.1 which should be fast enough (~366KBytes/s) to transmit standard def video. Just wondering if anyone is working on or knows of a way to support additional bluetooth profiles on a rooted Android system?

VPSByte Fraud "Protection"

Is this normal? I'm not doing it, I think it's stupid, never mind that I don't have a scanner.

Installation Won't Reboot
I've been trying to install Windows 7 on a brand new computer. It's running RAID 0, and I'm using the latest drivers from my motherboard manufacturer. Starting up the installation seems to work fine. It goes through the first phase of installation where I choose which partition I want to use, and it starts to copy files from the dvd, yada yada yada. After the "installing updates" section, a window pops up with the following message: "Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install Windows, restart the installation." It then kicks me back to the start of installation. If I start the install again, it does the same thing. If I reboot and restart installation, also the same. If I try a startup repair, I get a message saying that Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. I've tried this on two builds--7000 and 7077. Both have the same result.

Laptop Won't Sleep
Today, I installed Home Premium 32 bit (it's dual booting with Win 2K Pro) on a Dell Latitude C640. After much patience, googling and having a driver disc for this laptop, I finally finished the install. For a 2002 model laptop, it looks pretty good. The only known problem that I'm having is that it won't go into sleep mode. All of the other options are there except that. Windows 7 will install on almost anything there is, it looks like. Anyone have a suggestion for the sleep mode problem?

Make Access Link To Foxpro Database
Hi all,I would like to make a link in my Access DB to a Foxpro database. So I follow the code that I search here:Public Sub CreateLinkedAccessTable(LinkInDB As String, _ LinkToDB As String, _ LinkToTbl As String, _ LinkTblAs As String) Dim catDB As ADOX.Catalog Dim tblLink As ADOX.Table Set catDB = New ADOX.Catalog ' Open a Catalog on the database in which to create the link. catDB.ActiveConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _ "Data Source=" & LinkInDB Set tblLink = New ADOX.Table With tblLink ' Name the new Table and set its ParentCatalog property to the ' open Catalog to allow access to the Properties collection. .Name = LinkTblAs Set .ParentCatalog = catDB ' Set the properties to create the link. .Properties("Jet OLEDB:Create Link") = True '.Properties("Jet OLEDB:Link Datasource") = LinkToDB'-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------' HERE I MODIFIEDDim s' USE DSN-LESS , FAILs = "ODBC;Driver={Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver};" & _"SourceType=DBC;" & _"SourceDB=C: est.dbc;" & _"Exclusive=No"' USE DSN, OKAYs = "ODBC;DSN=TEST"'------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- .Properties("Jet OLEDB:Remote Table Name") = LinkToTbl .Properties("Jet OLEDB:Link Provider String") = s End With ' Append the table to the Tables collection. catDB.Tables.Append tblLink Set catDB = NothingEnd SubSo, while I make a DSN in Control panel/ODBC data source, the above code can be done. However, I would not like to make a DSN. So I try using DSN-less to do the code. However, I got error "ODBC--call failed". Do you know why?Much thx.

Slow Transfer Speeds Between Two Win 2008 Servers
I have two servers running windows 2008(rtm) and I'm getting just crappy transfer speeds between them. server 1: dual xeon quad core 8gb ram dynamic mirrored disks (windows software raid, ick i know hyper-V, 6 or so VMs, not real heavy load server 2: dual xeon quad core 8gb ram 3ware 9650Se raid card, raid1 (using latest engineering drivers/firmware) The servers are connected to each other via gigabit crossover. When I start to do a file transfer (a 40gb virtual machine, through windows file sharing) it starts fast. 60+MB/s says 12minutes remain but after 5minutes and 5gb or so of transfer it's slowed way down to 7MB/s and the network usage graph that was smooth and is now choppy.

Kohana Controller Setup Unexpectly Slow?
I am a fairly experienced PHP developer, who is new to kohana.I have built a website with Kohana, but after I uploaded to my server, I found part "Controller Setup" is unusually slow, took over 12s, whilst other take less than 0.5s, Kohana Loading 0.014 1 0.49MB Environment Setup 0.004 1 0.05MB System Initialization 0.007 1 0.14MB Controller Setup 12.058 1 1.42MB ReflectionClass >newInstance() 12.054 1 1.35MB Controller Execution 0.036 1 0.25MB Total Execution 12.117 1 2.30MB By digging into Kohana core, I have found ReflectionClass >newInstance() is causing the problemBut am not sure where I should go from here. :(I have dug deeper into my own code, looks like its Session::instance() whos causing the problem.Session::instance() 12.032 1 1.03MBFurther to my problem tracking, I have changed session driver to cache, and cache to memcache. But not much improvement. So I opened session.php, found this. /** * Singleton instance of Session. */ [code]...

Computer Won't Stay Off
I am about at wits end when it comes to this computer. I just built it like last week, and everything runs beautifully about it; that is, except that the dang thing won't stay turned off! I tell it to shutdown, and it turns itself back on after about two or three seconds. Let me clarify: the computer itself does NOT randomly shutdown, nor am I having problems with sleep or hibernate (haven't used them yet). Ok, so I have tried about everything on every help forum I've read from here to I have disable all wake events, including the ones in regards to network adapters. I have disabled automatic restart, and even fooled around in the BIOS, disabling all wake events. I've even flipped around between BIOS commanded and OS commanded event wakes in the BIOS. About the only thing I can do is log off of my user account, and then do a hard shutdown. Even did the thing where you specifically set what the power button does. So... please help! I will be most gracious, and will give any more information if necessary. The only thing I have NOT done is flash the BIOS; it won't recognize the USB device I have the updated drivers on.

802.3ad (bonding/link Aggregation) On Cisco 2960 W/linux
I thought with 802.3ad I could aggregate the links and thus turn a 3x100 megabit pipes to one 300 meg pipe. The problem is when using the default options (and layer2 xmit mode) I only get the bandwidth of a single connection and I see no other traffic on the other two. Here is output from /proc/net/bonding/bond0: Code: Ethernet Channel Bonding Driver: v3.3.0 (June 10, 2008) Bonding Mode: IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic link aggregation Transmit Hash Policy: layer2 (0) MII Status: up MII Polling Interval (ms): 100 Up Delay (ms): 0 Down Delay (ms): 0 802.3ad info LACP rate: slow Active Aggregator Info: Aggregator ID: 2 Number of ports: 3 Actor Key: 9 Partner Key: 3 Partner Mac Address: 00:1e:f6:xx:xx:xx Slave Interface: eth0 MII Status: up Link Failure Count: 0 Permanent HW addr: 00:1e:8c:xx:xx:xx Aggregator ID: 1 Slave Interface: eth2 MII Status: up Link Failure Count: 0 Permanent HW addr: 00:04:23:xx:xx:xx Aggregator ID: 1 Slave Interface: eth3 MII Status: up Link Failure Count: 0 Permanent HW addr: 00:04:23:xx:xx:xx Aggregator ID: 1 Basically it works in that I get a connection but its no different from being on a regular 100/100 connection. Downloading files my machine from completely different networks always only goes out one connection. I don't even see any received/sent packets from the other two interfaces. When I tell it to use layer3+4 via the xmit_hash_policy paramter when loading the module IE: modprobe bonding mode=4 xmit_hash_policy=layer3+4 miimon=100 It seems to work as expected except it looks like all incomming traffic comes in on the same interface and its not much different from a normal load balancing (except from a single IP address). I will stick to this method if I have no choice as I don't really care about the download all that much and it seems to do a good job. Here is /proc/net/bonding/bond0 from that config: Code: Ethernet Channel Bonding Driver: v3.3.0 (June 10, 2008) Bonding Mode: IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic link aggregation Transmit Hash Policy: layer3+4 (1) MII Status: up MII Polling Interval (ms): 100 Up Delay (ms): 0 Down Delay (ms): 0 802.3ad info LACP rate: slow Active Aggregator Info: Aggregator ID: 2 Number of ports: 3 Actor Key: 9 Partner Key: 3 Partner Mac Address: 00:1e:f6:xx:xx:xx Slave Interface: eth0 MII Status: up Link Failure Count: 0 Permanent HW addr: 00:1e:8c:xx:xx:xx Aggregator ID: 2 Slave Interface: eth2 MII Status: up Link Failure Count: 0 Permanent HW addr: 00:04:23:xx:xx:xx Aggregator ID: 2 Slave Interface: eth3 MII Status: up Link Failure Count: 0 Permanent HW addr: 00:04:23:xx:xx:xx Aggregator ID: 2 My understanding is that with layer2 it should just be one big fat pipe. IE: packets are fragmented and thus even a single connection should be able to sustain 300 megabits (if the other end could provide it). It seems like it just doesn't use my other interfaces at all when doing this. Here is my config on the cisco 2960: Code: interface Port-channel3 switchport access vlan 100 switchport trunk allowed vlan 100 switchport mode access switchport nonegotiate spanning-tree portfast ! interface FastEthernet0/10 switchport access vlan 100 switchport trunk allowed vlan 100 switchport mode access switchport nonegotiate channel-protocol lacp channel-group 3 mode active spanning-tree portfast ! interface FastEthernet0/38 switchport access vlan 100 switchport trunk allowed vlan 100 switchport mode access switchport nonegotiate channel-protocol lacp channel-group 3 mode active spanning-tree portfast ! interface FastEthernet0/40 switchport access vlan 100 switchport trunk allowed vlan 100 switchport mode access switchport nonegotiate channel-protocol lacp channel-group 3 mode active spanning-tree portfast

SQL Server :: Separate Web & Database?
Currently, we have our ASP.NET applications running on windows server 2003.  All of our data resides on an IBM ISeries / AS400.  The 400 people are going to be creating massive new tables with millions of records.  Because of this, I've been asked to look into the idea of putting new ASP.NET pages on the IBM ISeries server.  This server uses APACHE.  I have read that to do this, I will need to use the Mod_Mono Apache module. I would like to come up with a list of benefits and drawbacks to this new idea.  Initially, it seems like this is a bad idea for a few reasons: Security: if a users gets unauthorized access to our local server(s), they will only have access to either DB or web server, not both. Maintainability: Microsoft ASP.NET is easier to implement on a Microsoft Windows Server. Problem Solving: I will have to first determine if an issue is due to the ISeries server, or the Apache server, or the ASP.NET application. This could be countered by saying that I would already have to determine if the issue is due to Windows server, or ASP.NET application.  However I have better experience with troubleshooting on a windows box that I am familiar with. Problem Creating: I could escentially create a problem that not only takes down the web server, but the database as well, and other RPG programs running on the ISeries. Resources: The database server will not have to server my application, it will only have to retrieve the data for it. Drivers: The windows server already contains many drivers and .DLL's that are used... will these even exist on the ISeries? How easy (if even possible) would it be to get them on the ISeries if they dont exist..? A few positive thoughts: The application will reside on the same server as the data, thus, it may be quicker at retrieving data from these millions of records in a table. This was the main point as to why I should look into this possibility. Single point of failure. We no longer have to worry about two servers going down and causing this application to be unavailable...

Batch Inserts And Prepared Query Error?
Ok, so I need to populate a MS Access database table with results from a MySQL query. That's not hard at all. I've got the program written to where it copies a template .mdb file to a temp name and opens it via odbc. No problem so far.I've noticed that Access does not support batch inserting (VALUES (foo, bar), (second, query), (third query)). So that means I need to execute one query per row (there are potentially hundreds of thousands of rows). Initial performance tests show a rate of around 900 inserts/sec into Access. With our largest data sets, that could mean execution times of minutes (Which isn't the end of the world, but obviously the faster the better). So, I tried testing a prepared statement. But I keep getting an error (Warning: odbc_execute() [function.odbc-execute]: SQL error: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]COUNT field incorrect , SQL state 07001 in SQLExecute in D:....php on line 30). Here's the code I'm using (Line 30 is odbc_execute): $sql = 'INSERT INTO table ([field0], [field1], [field2], [field3], [field4], [field5]) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?)';[code].... So my question is two fold. First, is there any idea on why I'm getting that error (I've checked, and the number in the array matches the field list which matches the number of parameter ? markers)? And second, should I even bother with this or just use the straight INSERT statements? Like I said, time isn't critical, but if it's possible, I'd like to get that time as low as possible (Then again, I may be limited by disk throughput, since 900 operations/sec is high already)...
