  1. I had intended to attempt to upgrade the firmware but i couldn't figure for sure the exact one I needed so I just let that be. I don't think lightscribe makes any difference. As far as I understand that's just to make designs on the disc. It reads all other types of discs fine. Just seems to kinda hang up on these. How would I go about changing to a slower read speed? I'll hit the store this afternoon and grab some Verbatim discs see if that makes any difference. Thanks for all the suggestions.
  2. I agree with ghostmaster. No reason to worry about svchost. Running multiple instances is completely normal. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/svchost.exe.html
  3. Yup. Tried all that. No luck. Not really sure what's going on.
  4. Hey everybody! I'm having some trouble with my DVD burner. It doesn't seem to want to recognize DVD+R DL. Which it should be able to both read and write without any issue. Discs are brand new and tried several different ones. Scoured the internet found many others with this same problem but no real solution. Drivers appear to be up to date. Looked for a new firmware but couldn't be for sure which to use. Here's what I get from Nero InfoTool: I'm running Vista Ultimate completely updated. Not sure what other information would be helpful to add.
  5. I use www.driveragent.com. They offer a free scan, but if you want to update through their site, you do need a paid subscription. Or you could check with device manager: Start>Right-Click My Computer>Select Properties>Hardware>Device Manager>Network Adapters>Select your adapter then right click and select update driver.
  6. You can set it to clean house whenever you reboot. Just check the Run CCleaner when the computer starts box. Options>Settings>Run CCleaner when the computer starts
  7. I'm running media center as well. Looking forward to playing around with Vista when it's released.

  9. You will be able to upgrade to any version of Vista from XP Home. Here's a quick read from Microsoft which also has a chart showing the different OS's, and the upgrade/clean install options available. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/upgradeinfo.mspx
  10. We're in the low 40's here. http://tvlinks.50webs.com is another great site. They've got SouthPark, and about thirty other shows to watch.
  11. The best place to get an answer to this and your other questions, would be from a professional dietitian. Ask your doctor for referrals.
  12. Google's accelerator doesn't actually boost your line speed. It works, in a sense, like the cache on your home computer. It basically stores copies of popular pages/files on googles servers to get them to you faster. I'd reccomend looking around the google help site for a full explanation of how it operates. http://webaccelerator.google.com/support.html#basics2
  13. By advertised he means what speed package are you paying for. For example my advertised speed is 6/768. Or 6 Mbps downstream and 768 Kbs upstream.
  14. When you click "I'm Feeling Lucky," it simply returns the top link. The same top link you would see if you clicked "Google Search." The links may change from time to time. There's no secret meaning behind them. For example, as I'm writing this, the current "I'm Feeling Lucky" search directs me to a website called "Failure Magazine."
  15. Sorta. The CD itself is free, however there's a s&h charge of $3.29. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/sp2/cdorder/en_us/default.mspx

  17. I don't much like chatting on the phone either. However you should be able to upgrade online via your account page. Or alternatively, just fire them off an email.
  18. I've got it all squared away now. Thanks DL and Meg.
  19. Hi everybody. I just got a Linksys WRT54GS Router with SpeedBooster. I ran the install cd and everythings up and running. Only problem is, when I try to access the configuration page it doesn't display properly: Any ideas? Thanks in advace.
  20. Basically, uncapping is altering ones modem configuration file to get a greater download/upload speed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncapping
