  1. Thank you sir, I'm about to jump into the bios now. <br>SteveH11
  2. First off, congrats to testmy for hitting 10,000. Great site !!!!<br><br>And on to the crux of this post: I'm going to install a soundblaster 24 bit sound card into my PC. I'm running Windows XP home. I believe that XP already has CDDA extraction enabled in the OS, but does it need to be set in the bios as well ?And.... If it is in fact enabled, I don't need to wire it to my dvd rom....right????<br>Nonetheless, my real issue lies in how to disable the onboard audio on the MOBO. I'm installing this card in an ASUS A7V8X-LA. (kelut) motherboard. It has the old built in sound. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.<br><br>One more for the gear heads....Does anyone know if adding this card will relieve my processor (AMD XP-3200) of the task of co/reproducing sound off the board, and actually boost its' power (even if only minimally)?<br><br>Thanks again.<br><br>SteveH11
  3. Just,<br>Thanks alot. I feel kind of foolish. I always clean out the cache with internet options (through control panel) I was wondering if that was what you meant. Now, is there a way to see how much is cached at a time ? In Firefox Under tools/options, you can delegate how much cache to use. And clear it all in one little page. Simple. For me anyway. <br> I'm still perplexed as to why firefox allows a much better throughput. Here is my work PC's speed test:<br><br>:::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 4205 Kbps about 4.2 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 513 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server1) Test Time:: Fri Jun 3 14:29:25 EDT 2005 Bottom Line:: 75X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2 sec Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 147.35 % faster than the average for host (ameritech.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-0TPEBKZ1N <br> This is not T1 (obviously) and it's being run through IE, on an 80 pc network.<br> What could be affecting my machine at home? (see above post) As stated before, I'm paying for 4 meg per. sec. And getting close to 3 meg on tests. Even worse if I run the smaller file test. Then as you notice, Firefox shows me screaming. <br><br> I'm concerned that perhaps my svchost or smss process may have been hijacked although I do not have the symptoms (blatent) like my pc shutting down or not turning on. I run AVG virus check and it never finds it, nor do I have any (obvious) spyware issues.<br><br> Thanks again<br>SteveH11
  4. JUST-, Thank you . Love the site. Funny enough, my cable guy told me about it while testing my line speed for issues. He said they all use it while on jobs. <br><br> I've been cleaning my "tracks" and such with the ZoneAlarm cache cleaner and the Microsoft anti spyware advanced tools. Please forgive my ignorance, but how else can I clean, and make sure the IE cache is clean. Firefox is not a problem. <br><br>Thanks again.<br><br>I'm paying for a 4 meg per sec. line, but my tests show an average speed of about 3000 k. With a 390-400 k download speed. This annoys me, and the cable "dude" says it all has to do with the amount of people on line (understood) and firewall, or a TV hooked to cable at the splitter. 400 k download is a world better than my old 9 k per sec dial up by miles.....but I'm getting greedy. :twisted:
  5. Just tested on Firefox::::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 4117 Kbps about 4.1 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 503 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2) Test Time:: Thu Jun 02 2005 18:20:52 GMT-0400 (Eastern Standard Time) Bottom Line:: 74X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.04 sec Diagnosis: Looks Great : 14.42 % faster than the average for host (Comcast.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-UHNW1SL2X <br><br>And then on IE:<br><br>:::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 3282 Kbps about 3.3 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB) Download Speed is:: 401 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server1) Test Time:: Thu Jun 2 18:24:01 EDT 2005 Bottom Line:: 59X faster than 56K 1MB download in 2.55 sec Diagnosis: 90% + Okay : running at 91.22 % of your hosts average (Comcast.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-76IW1LVN5 <br><br>It seems I'm much quicker on Firefox. While testing with IE, there seems to be a bit of a hangup at 98% to 99% completion. Hmmmmm?
