Re: windowsxp swap file or page file question.

my guess there is that you where using a soundcard that used a dos driver. if you know the sound is on the motherboard and not a sound card, you might have an option to find chipset drivers for the machine that will enable sound. if its a card and your sure that it is compatible with 7 seek the driv...

Re: windowsxp swap file or page file question.

ah, i see..circumvented big brother huh. it works just fine without it and hasn't had virus or hack attack since. that being the main reason I'm going to linus, (they don't want to do you in). they give away the OS as well as software Apps for it. the thing i like about windows x86 that isn't presen...

Re: windowsxp swap file or page file question.

nope, that search method don't work either. I removed IE.. I am guessing "search" was a part of, if not a function of IE is why it isn't working and IDK how to fix this other than re installing IE except maybe a third party search or or re install something full of vulnerability's.. I will try to ad...

the "Aomei" back upper and the partition assistant by them, I used where free direct downloads,from aomei they are "fully capable" to, not some half crippled or trial BS software. it goes smoother if you do one task at a time instead of chaining a bunch together because the software will do one at a...

Re: Microwave blow up!

the arc is probably a a large diode or bridge rectifier that has broken down. allowing the wrong polarity to be present. it's usually what causes this "damaging arc effect", my experience with microwave ovens is it's best to junk them out get a newer one. for best results.. I do have a really good b...

Re: So you want to install Windows 10 on an XP?

Re: windowsxp swap file or page file question.

normally, a virtual ram setup is very slow, un trust worthy. because it is usually only activated on the main C drive. because when every step has to do read/write on the same channel at the same time. I fixed this by dedicating the secondary channel to it. so virtual memory is used unless I put a c...
