  2. Hey whats up guys, haven't been around here in a long time . Glad to see this place is still kicking. I recently moved into my new house and i upgraded to the RR turbo package 15/2. I was getting 13-14/2 pretty constant for the first couple of days. But now at certain times either early when i get home from work in the morning or late in the afternoon, my speed will drop to under 1mbit down.. but my upload stays at least 1.5mbits or higher. After about 10 min. of me restarting and checking the cables, the speed goes back up to normal. This is a test of after i had the problem... ::
  3. Sweet i wasnt sure if i can do that. I found the file in Win98_23.cab Hopefully in the future i wont have to visit these cab files.. but im sure i will lol
  4. Well, i let my brother go on the comp when i was sleeping and when i woke up all mayhem was going on. There was no internet connection, which i fixed by replugging in my coaxil to the wall several times, but the main problem is this. A required .DLL file, C:WINDOWSSYSTEMOLEAUT32.DLL, was not found. I get this whenever i try opening pretty much any program. My brother also said he tried to open the dll file with internet explorer. Not sure about XP but in win98 when you open a file that says "open with" it stays with that designated program. I tried looking for the DLL file under
  5. Down in Daytona, Florida its getting pretty hot -ClanBot-20- Weather for Daytona Beach, FL (32127): -ClanBot-20- Temperature: 87
  6. its actually pretty big case, not hte slim model with the sidways optical drives. Hopefully the fan will stay working for a while until i get a new computer, the cooling sytem they have in the optiplex is a joke. This is what it looks like without the big stupid green vent on the heatsink. The Fan is pushing air down towards the AGP slot, so if u have a video card all it does is push the air into it. The back of the vent is connected to the back panel where a rear fan should be but its not. It seems like a place where heat should escape but it doesnt. I wish my gpu was on t

  8. Its a Dell Optiplex GX150, The problem has been resolved though. Thx for the replies guys. I unplugged the fan power connector to the mobo and cleaned the dust out, and when i powered back on it worked. I then attatched a house fan to my rear to blow out any hot air or anything built up in the heatsink and its running fine now thank god. thx again guys
  9. everything seems to be working fine, my monitor sometimes bugs out if it gets unplugged from the video card while the computer is on. I opened the case and it has this duct system where the heatsink is on top of the cpu.. but inside of a green duct. Then on one side in the case it has a fan, i assume intake pushing air over the heatsink through the vent and our a rear back panel. The fan still doesnt turn on or push air, so im thinking that has to be the problem, because my heatsink was on fire lol.. very hot. I really need a new comp i think im just gonna beg my parents for one
  10. im 18, will be 19 in july.
  11. Well i left my pc off overnight and on startup it still didnt detect the fan. The computer i have is a dell. It has this duct system that has a green vent over the heatsink and fan i think. I dont have a rear fan just the hsf under the green duct. Nothing is overclocked either. Last time this happened after i left it off overnight to cool down the system fan turned back on. I noticed that the computer was also restarting no on loads, sometimes just on pure idle or loading windows. If it restarts again im gonna see if i can take apart the duct and see whats up with the fan.
  12. Ok i dont know how long i have until i randomly restart again. First my mouse went out so i restarted. Then when i rebooted the monitor wouldnt turn on. Then after i got it working again, after the windows loading screen, nothing would come up. I figured it would be a driver problem, so i used a spare monitor and rebooted into safe mode and did a driver update from the folder i have. Then i plugged the other monitor in and it all seemed to work fine... I was playing counter strike and then boom restarted. Then on the reboot following even before windows loaded, another. Several else
  13. ya i get called for trouble shooting 24/7, always answering simple questions.. And it always seems that whenever i have a problem, nobody else can help me. I guess im a geek although i dont look like one. I used to skateboard, i play guitar, workout and i like playing basketball and football. Im like a hybrid-geek lol. or cool geek as PeePs said. Whats funny is, back in high school., the so called stereotypical geek would never really know alot about computers. They would just be socially challenged, wear glass's and possibly look awkward. Not to mention habits of reading, reall
  14. Ya i have also seen the commercials. I dont believe they are the first ones to do this. I think i have seen a few other companys like this targetting a consumer with bad or no credit. My family purchased a dell from a rent to own place about 4 years ago. The terms werent that bad as we payed about 1100$ in total but they were very lenient on payments and provided a free upgrade after a few months. The only way scams like this and major retail companys overcharging for generic parts can stop is if the public is more educated. I would really like to see more online computer sites make
