  1. my problem is with the calculation of free memory in one of my disc's viz., D the attached image can explain u more than i can tell you anyway the problem is everything from Properties window to Everest application shows me the free memory available is something near to 1.5GB but when i select all the folders and files(hidden files is not included here) in the disc D and then rightclick-> properties, it shows to be occupying 5.35 GB (and if hidden files included it comes to around 5.55 GB) and thus my doubt arises here total disc space = 10 GB used space = 5.35 GB therefore free space = 10 - 5.35 = 3.99GB not equal to 1.5 GB as showed by everything including Everest application!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what may be the problem???????? am i wrong in calculation???? or something crappy inside my disc???????????
  2. i too got the same problem when my new monitor came just check for the power supply to the crt!!!! or as told by swimmer just dont place any unshielded electronic devices beside monitor(i used to have my screen shaking coz of me placing a mobile phone beside my monitor) and the moment i take it from there the screen becomes normal. nowadays highend mobile phones pose no problems like these but those old lower end mobile phones usually cause these problems
  3. i have a adsl connection(256kbps) you can see the splitter at the bottom right(small white box) corner of the picture. fyi, i have marked it in the picture below
  4. an you please explain me the above statement? after removing the splitter what should i do?? surely i try to do all the above said and reply again!!! i have already tried to get rid of that modem but was told by my ISP that "no stock for new modem and contact us later" and for my information they too told that above 99% of these types of modems work without any fault and surely there would be no problem with mine and for my satisfaction they even tested it in their office infront of me ooooooooopppppppsssssss ABSOLUTELY MY MODEM SHOWED NO PROBLEMS IN THEIR OFFICE i am thinking that the telephone connection(cable) from my home to their exchange may be the whole cause!!!!
  5. hello friends recently i was told by my friends that if a dataone(brandname of BSNL 's broadband service) activates the game pack he can download a file with a transfer rate or download speed of 60 kbps and most of my friends have experimented with it too and it 's TRUE. THEY ARE DOWNLOADING WITH A TRANSFER RATE OF 60 KBPS instead of the normal 30 kbps and coming to tariffs there is no information on the game package and its related tariff in the tariff page of the www.dataone.in site. if no info is given then IS IT FREE???????????? so my question is have anybody experienced this game package and know the cost which i have to pay for this game package???? PS: you can activate this game package by entering your account page in the dataone site and go to game pack menu and click activate account.
  6. @ ISP Geek is it a splitter problem???????????? for me too the LED will just go off and when i switch off and switch on again slowly the LED lits and connects me to net. these all i am doing after checking the physical connections.
  7. the same problem here dudes i will be using opera browser for downloads from rapidshare and mine is a having dynamic ip address (i think) as of now. for the past 1 week or more i am facing this type of problem . i' ll be downloading a big file(some 300 MB for my connection, its very big;)) and i used to start my download and go to sleep thinking that there will be no problem. but after the stipulated time when i switch on my monitor thinking that download will be complete i will be there for a surprise the browser will show me a error downloading file so one time i myself sat to check what is happening while downloading those type of files. during the last 1 hour of my download i saw the download speed to be gradually decreasing and it dropped to zero. showing me the above mentioned ERROR again i switched on my modem and it took some 2 minutes to connect me to the internet, for that AMBER LIGHT to be lit.by the way my modem is Sterlite SmartAX MT 841 and the company is Huawei. i used to check all my physical connections(cables) before connecting it again.then only it used to work otherwise, it will show me "NO CONNECTIVITY OR LIMITED CONNECTIVITY" it 's really sucking dudes and the reply told by ISPGeek is correct for me, i think coz my modem is at the same level as that of monitor on the desk and the CPU is at the lower shelf of the desk so the coax cable which connects my modem with CPU pulls itself down due to its own weight and thus the cable become somewhat loosely fit to the backside port of the modem WHERE IT IS CONNECTED and so after my check of physical connections they were all rightly set and as time passes the problem comes again now i m gonna relocate my modem and check whether this problem persists????????? and thanks cobra for starting the thread. in fact i was thinking of starting a thread for this problem attaching some fotos(sorry for the poor quality,since i shot them with my mobile) of my comp setting(from backside) due to which all problems rose
  8. @ water the problem resurfaced again after applying the settings the first time i am booting up, it is done in the way i desire i.e., Autologon but after that, the next time i reboot it, the pc slips back to normal or previous method of booting i.e., i have to click on the admin icon to be let into the desktop!!!!!!!!!!!!! that is the settings i applied are retained only once until the next bootup. once the bootup is complete those autologon settings are lost i hope what should i do?????????????
  9. and finally my friends the problem got solved now my bootup time is greatly reduced i think earlier it was some 54 seconds i think now it has reduced much...... thanks water for the link it a very gr8 tool to be used !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. yes tommie you are actually thinking the same way as i do i want everything in my system to be faster from booting up to shutdown and i will be vexed up if i see my pc to be slow a simple quote from Brian Tracy s "Create Your Own Future How to Master the 12 Critical Factors of Unlimited Success" "Every innovation in business and industry today is aimed at reducing the amount of time it takes to get a particular result. They are aimed at increasing the speed at which you satisfy customers with what they want." "Every technological advance is aimed at accelerating the process and getting the job done faster." an eg from the same book Tom Monaghan started Domino
  11. hey guys my prob is yet not solved i did the way water told but the new way of logging on is much more sicker than the previous one, ohhhhh it asks me the username and pass to be typed in!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it goes like that of win '98,2000. i become sick on seeing that old antiquated login screens! so i just shifted back to my previous method of logging on again i 'm repeating the same question in a slightly different way:: have u seen welcome screens in Xp SP1 OS??? if there is only one user i.e., the admin, after the welcome screen it just goes to the desktop!!!!!!!! i want it that way. i dint want the login screen to be displayed and wait 4 me to click on the admin icon in the login screen!!!!!!!! do all of you get my point????????
  12. hello friends i am using XP Sp2 OS and only one username exists i.e., administrator in my PC. while booting up the welcome screen is showing me the logon screen too!!! if there are more than one usernames in a PC then its OK but in my case its only one i.e., the admin then why is it asking me to logon screen its very time consuming guys!!!!!!!!!! i just want to know if there any ways to skip the logon screen(only one username)?????????? screenshot provided!!!
  13. @ wing zero superb man its the best way to solve those type of q's
  14. @ RAINMAKA Here are my answers for some problems you 've posted (if i am allowed) ans. 2cos(x)=sqrt(2) =1.414 therefore cos(x)=1.414/2=0.707 x=cos^-1(0.707) =45.00865166 now comes use calculator dude or longman tables if calcs are not allowed to find the values of both log 27 and log 8 and then find the difference in my calculator there were both log to the base as exponential and to the base 10 i couldn't remember the default log base to be taken coz i am too out of school for a very long time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and take log on both sides reducing it to 3x log 6 = 5x log 3 now simplify it dude and here too there is that base problem sorry dude i dont know how to do this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! finally i am making out how can anyone make an equation with two x intercepts and one y intercept!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and again sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope you got the answers for atleast some!!!!!!!!!!!!!! q's!!!!!!!!! pls correct me if i 'm wrong
  15. @Planatoid just dont make this thread a little political plsssssssss i wanna know the technical reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! thx for your info about the google owners
  16. @ tommie do you mean to guess(or say) that google voluntarily or knowingly only is doing this???????????????
  17. hello guys, today i found something really unexpected!!!!!!!!!!!! go to www.google.com for me its redirected to www.google.co.in (i 'm in INDIA) and type "Failure" without any quotes and instead of clicking Google search click I am feeling lucky and see what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! can i know the reason for this happening???????????? i read this message(posted months back) today morning only while going through community messages archive in orkut.com and tried it and yet it worked out!!!! don't the google know this???????????? or at least the whitehouse???????? or are they reluctant to correct this problem?????????????? anyway i wish to know the reason for the above happening??????????? have anybody tried this or know the reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! note:this msg is not intended to hurt any body mentally just i wish to know the reason thats it
  18. do you need any automatic shutdown(or poweroff) application to automatically shutdown the system at a preset time so that you can limit your children's playtime on pc???????????????? if yes pls let me know or else if you just want to monitor the files opened by them??if yes just go to IE->History->My Computer.but if your children delete those data in the path given above then no way or something else, pls be specific of what do you want to monitor!!!!!!!!!

  20. @ roco oh ok waiting for testmy.net team to my rescue regards karthic
  21. @ roco i am using xp and i have this question for you everytime i boot my pc it is asking for a disk check and i did it once and there were no errors that time and again when i restart, every time, it asks me for a disk check, why should i do a disc check voluntarily when i had already done one dick check forced to be done by the system???????????
  22. @ roco i will do it and post the reply soon dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  23. guys i had a peculiar problem from yesterday evening in my PC the problem is that during every boot(startup or power ON ) of my PC after the boot up screen and before the welcome screen there appears a screen in which it's asking for a disk checking. i had encountered this earlier (when suddenly power goes off and the bloody UPS too fails me in supporting at least till i shutdown it properly thro start->shutdown). but now i had done nothing of that sort but yet yesterday morning i had a System Mechanic 5 and done some cleaning like removing the junk files(i did this coz i ran some on line scans some days back and so wanted to remove those downloaded files) and yes it did like recovering some hundreds of MB of disk space and the greatest blunder came from my mom it seems when she tried working on my PC when i was out. she had just powered off(switched off) the system (PC) instead of going thro start->shutdown and i have a doubt whether this might have triggered those discchecks during boot up But yet only one disk check only will be done during the first time after it was shutdown through improper means(not through start->shutdown) but in my case why is it doing every time i power on(boot up) my PC????? guys can anyone of you just point me what would have happened???????? and what should i do for its rectification?????????????????
  24. can i know what do you mean by this Mr.Moderator??????????? Does the ISP has the rights to change my type of IP address?? in fact while registering for this broadband they have asked me whether i want a static IP or a dynamic one and I opted for static IP considering the safety involved in it!!! By the way how were you telling that i moved from a static IP to a dynamic IP?? Can i know the technique behind that??? and how to check whether i am having a dynamic IP ar static ip??????/
