Can't find needed details of my NIC ?

Question: Can't find needed details of my NIC ?

So far ,the only info i can find about my realtek NIC aren't helping me much, so i can't find a more recent driver . Device manager and the realtek network diagnostic utility tool only give minimal details about my NIC.

realtek PCIe FE family controller driver

version; 7.23.623.2010

I'm using Windows 7 ultimate 32bit.

Preferred Solution: Can't find needed details of my NIC ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Dosucol,

External Networkin Card?

If it is External Is there a Serial Code or Any information on the actual card itself?

You Could Also Try this link and Put in The Following to see if these Drivers Solve the Issue.

Make sure you get the Windows 7 Version, and it may take a moment to download as the links are hosted in China.

A loud humming noise suddenly sounded from my T60p Lenovo Laptop.I dissassembled it and found that the CPU fan attached to the heat sink has expired.This looks like a stock fan that can be purchased for less than $10. What type of fan is this?In reference to the PDF manual on the T60p, the FRU number that matches the correct drawing is 41W0467. On your site it shows a different FRU number.I am a relatively experienced technician but cannot identify the fan size.Anyone?

Welcome to the forum! You're unlikely to obtain the information that you're looking for. If you look hard enough, though, you may be able to find the original fan for $25 or so...a wise investment on a $1,000 laptop... My $0.02 only...

I recently bought Toshiba Tecra S2 on Ebay, but I can't find any *official* details about this machine. I already found two problems: seller said CPU is 2.0GHz, it is 1.6 in reality; seller said DVD+-RW is built in, in reality it's CD read/write, DVD only read.
I'm getting more and more suspicious about this whole thing.

Here's link to a model/serial number:

Answer:Tecra S2 - can't find any details


it can be problematic to pick up right info when you buy used notebook because you don?t know the history of this notebook. Maybe it was repaired in the past. Maybe some components are not original and also don?t forget that such notebooks were maybe part of special project.

That means Toshiba has maybe designed several thousand such notebook for big companies as Telekom or some insurance. Mostly such notebooks will be later sold at eBay.

When you just check the info on sticker there is written PM 730/512/60G42/15XT/DCW/LM/W that means inside should be Intel Pentium M 730 MHz/521 MB RAM/ 15? XT display/60 GB HDD with 4200 RPM speed?.

So it is not easy to give you exact info because Tecra S2 was delivered with several different hardware platforms.
I?m afraid you got notebook that was BTO. That means ? build to order.

Hi, how can I find out the server details to set up outlook for my Yahoo account?

When I registered with my current IP, I had problems finding out the info I needed, until I emailed a friend of the same IP, and they let me have the details.

As the settings were simply mail.{IP name} I thought that would be a standard.
I now also have a yahoo account for my more public surfing, and want to set OE to Yahoo mail too.

Does anyone know what the send/recieve servers are for Yahoo?

Heres the problem, ive got a group of 6 cables that need to be plugged into my motherboard...I was following a 'build your own pc guide'...and then it said refer to the manual. The pc I was building is rather old, for example it has a 12GB hard drive with 64mb of RAM, Windows 98 etc, and as a result I dont have a manual. As far as I can tell the version is MS5182 VER:1, also reffered to as N1996, and uses Ali M1541 A1 something or other (not really sure what ). Most of the parts are made in Taiwan if it helps. The cables I need to connect are: speakers, reset switch, power switch and the H.D.D LED, as well as two unidentified connections. I would greatly appreciate any help because, whilst it wouldnt be a great loss if the PC did'nt work, this is supposed to be a kind of test my dad set me (take apart and fix an old computer) so I can prove ill be able to put together a pc im hoping to buy later in the year but I didnt realise the motherboard manuals had been lost when I took it apart...not a nice suprise. Hope you can help

Motherboard needed as video is no good Model No PSLB0A-08H022.

Because of price I have been looking at second hand machines with broken screens as donor. If they could do that maybe they could exchange their broken screens. The sellers are not tech savvy enough to find a part number on the motherboard.

There are so many different models in the L300 series. Specifications are hard to find on these discontinued models. I downloaded 2 specifications sheets from Toshiba site and when I opened the PDF there was no information.

Currently I have a possible candidate PSLB0A-08E022 but I am unsure. I don't know whether these have motherboard in common, do they? I just can not come up with the information I want.

Anyone know the differences in motherboards for the different models?
Any guidelines that I may use to get a correct motherboard to go with the rest of the hardware (remembering I am only going to get the model number to go by and not the actual motherboard part number).

Hello everyone,

Can someone tell me what is the make and model of the 256GB SSD disk in the Satellite S50-B-15E laptop Toshiba ships with? The product information is pretty good except the SSD which is a shame...

I know the SSD itself will definitely be better than a HDD but I still would like to know what Toshiba puts into this model. Is it 3Gb or 6Gb SSD model?

What make is the SSD: Toshiba Q or anything else?
I own a couple of SSDs in my PCs which are great but I like to know what I buy.


Answer:Satellite S50-B-15E - Details of 256GB SSD drive needed

As far as I know the Satellite S50-B-15E was equipped with a 256GB M-SATA SSD drive.
The notebook was equipped with the Mobile Intel HM86 Express Chipset and this chipset supports 4 ports with an SATA 6Gbit performance.

Unfortunately I did not find any further details about the mSATA SSD drive but I guess if the chipset supports 6Gbit, the SSD drive should be able to support this speed too.

Nevertheless, if you found some more details about the SSD drive, an feedback would be appreciated

Hi Thenin and welcome to Tenforums.

Probably the best thing to do right now, is download what you need, and throw in an empty drive, disconnect all other drives, and clean install W10, then use your W7 key to activate it once you get to the desktop. Also, skip checking for updates at the beginning of the install, because the servers are being hammered now, and you'll just sit there idle, while nothing happens.

If you must review the failure log, it can be found at

You'll need to show hidden system files to find it, and you'll need to copy it to someplace else in order to open it.

7:45 to go. No time to lose.

Ok Techies, I need some real help on this one....

Older Gateway P3 500mhz last week was working fine...
I don't know the exact details it is my mom's PC and I am giving it a whirl at it... Was working fine then one day she says everytime she boots after bios black screen says"no OS found"

So I pick up thePC and bios won't and can't find a Hard drive.
Maybe bad drive, I remove and replace it with a good one w/ OS already installed.. NO OS found..
I insert Windows Xp disc in CD rom and it loads drivers and then begin to install, next "windows can't continue no HD detected.

Back to bios check Periph.. no primary (none)
secondary shows (cd rom)

I try swapping out

Hard drives..
New ribbon cable...
Switch IDE spots on mobo...
Try to run HD & CD on same line set one for slave.. (didn't work)
Try hooking up HD and remove CD
Bios still shows None for primary and secondary...

Bios recognizes CD roms... but won't detect any HD's...

I try to reset Bios (nvidia) w/ jumper... still same
Removed battery cleaned contacts ... still won't find HD
Ok I'm at wits end .. can't think of anything else to try...

Beg and plead anyone w/ ideas feel free to post...

Truly appreciate any help and suggestions

Answer:Bios/PC can't find HD details inside

Have you tried a different power connector on the hard drive? Also try entering the hard drive parameters manually in the BIOS.

Good luck.


On a side note, it is possible that the CMOS battery is dead. On some older machines if the battery goes the BIOS won't detect the hard drive.

Greetings,I have discovered the Windows Task Manager and curiously would like to know more about the entries found there.Is there a concise source of information to get details on individual entries there as I have also found out that these are pertinent to computer functions, etc.but have searched Windows Help with no results, I have gone to the internet and searched for example, the image name under processes in Windows Task Manager, . . .hcpcsvcd.exe, and have minimal non discript information.Jp

Answer:Where can I find details about Task Manage ?

Here's one good source of info on processes:  If you don't find what you're looking for there, you'll just have to search for other sources.  hcpcsvcd.exe is not listed there and I believe this is probably an indication that it's very unusual.  And, indeed, a Google search on hcpcsvcd.exe yields very little.  Have you done a full hard drive scan for viruses recently?

I'm in need of a new video card! I really don't know anything about computer hardware, so you'll have to help me out.

I am a gamer, and my video card sucks (I have a GeForce4 440), and I can't play any new games such as Battlefield 2. Even older games such as Battlefield 1942 and America's Army quit in the middle of gameplay all the time.

I have been making money recently, and can now afford a very good video card. I am willing to spend $200 - $325 for a video card. My computer is good enough for a good card (at least I think it is).

I have an Asus A7V8X-X motherboard with 512 MB ram. My CPU processor is AMD XP 2500 OEM (just as good as the pentium 4.)

I was thinking about getting the famous Geforce 7800. Is this a good idea? Will I need more ram? Will it fit into my case (ATX XP400)? Also, what are all these different types I'm seeing (7800GS, 7800GT, 7800GTX)? What are the differences?

Hello I upgraded my BIOS recently (I believe from A04 to A06) because I felt it might be needed to support a CPU upgrade.  Problem is, the new BIOS adds no new features that I can see, and takes 10 seconds longer to boot.  Fastboot is enabled.  This is a problem, since I recently installed an SSD and this new BIOS appears to be doing nothing, and is getting in the way of an otherwise lightning fast boot.  
What is the correct procedure for restoring the system to the BIOS which it shipped with?  I think I can remove the battery, but is there not a preferred method? Also, it is remotely possible, given the processor upgrade, that the old BIOS will not boot.  I would prefer not to put in the old processor, reinstall the new BIOS, put in the new processor... Decades ago, a floppy disk would have come to the rescue, I believe Dell has a procedure for installing a new BIOS from a flash drive if a system fails to boot, what is the correct procedure? 
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

For Windows 7, is there a list of the 'Details' available in the Windows Explorer folder view called 'Details' which has an explanation for each of them? Most of them are simple but some leave me scratching my head.

Answer:explanation of 'Details' in Windows Explorer 'Details' view

The "Details" which are available are those you see when a list of files is in "Details" view (as opposed to "Icons" or "Tiles" views.In "Details" view, depending on which column categories you have enabled, you are shown such things as filesize, file-date, filetype etc. If you then right-click any column header, you can choose to hide or show more information columns.I can't see how any of that can leave you scratching your head as it's no different to previous versions of Windows in that respect.

I need a little help with something that seems simple. I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. I have changed the columns in Details view in a folder. However Windows is not populating those columns, so what am I missing? This holds true on both my network drives and my local drives, so I checked my indexing options and they are set to index my local drives, so I assumed that should have at least worked. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi,I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosenAny suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

I would like to buy a new "HP Pavilion Slimline s5z series" computer
from HP's website but HP only ships/supports windows7 now.

This is a current computer with a AMD X4 Quad-core CPU. Is it reasonable
to find all the required CPU, Bridge, Audio, Video, Ethernet, etc drivers
or am I fooling myself? I've played with Windows7 and still prefer the
clean look and feel of XP. Is this possible or will I end up with an unstable
PC due to driver issues?

Is there a "legal" XP OS installation I can buy that has all the needed drivers
for newer PCs like this HP Slimline?

Thanks for your help.

Answer:Can you find all the needed XP drivers for new PCs??

Nope Microsoft does not sell XP to Retailers any more. Not since 2008 (June).

Support for Windows Xp (Life cycle) will end sometime in 2014 maybe sooner. Xp life cycle link

Windows xp may not support your hardware for the new pc.
Windows Xp is pretty much obsolete.

New systems use SATA drives which Windows Xp has issues with them.

I would recommend sticking with Windows 7 it's is the flagship of Microsoft's OS now.
Windows 7 is 3 times better than XP. More hardware support for the newer computers we have out today.

You can make Windows 7 look cleaner by Selecting Windows Classic.

Right click on your Desktop select "Personalize" click on Windows classic.

I purposefully have UAC set so that I sometimes get the "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to your PC?" popup. Is there any way to tell what requested change is prompting this popup? My response would depend on what's being changed.

I know I can get rid of the popup altogether, but that is absolutely not what I want to do. I want to know when a new program is trying to change things. If it is trying to change the directory, for example, I want to know what it wants to change. If it wants to save its own settings in the directory that's ok. If it wants to change other settings, that may not be ok.

okay here it comes. I need to find a way to find replace data on a big scale for excel 2003. I have a bunch of numbers(5m or so) that correspond to a different number. I don't know how to write a macro at all, and am currently find replacing, but this seems like it's going to take a life time.

1____________ 10000
2____________ 93233
3____________ 43234

Worksheet 2 parenthesis is a cell
(1) (2) (2) (1) (3) (2)
(2) (1) (2) (3) (2) (3) etc.

I need to make worksheet 2 numbers change to represent the numbers corresponding to worksheet 1 so for every (1) that comes up it changes to 10000. I hope I explained this right. Please Help, I will continue find replacing while I hope for an answer.

Answer:Odd Find Replace Excel God Needed :)

The simplest and quickest way is to use built-in Excel functions.
You will need a 3rd worksheet for metadata. Not knowing the actual sheet names, I'll assume they are called

Also, let's say Sheet1 has the data in columns A & B, and data in Sheet2 begins at cell A1
So, in Sheet3, in cell A1 you will need this formula:

Extend the formula for as many cells as you have in Sheet2.
When ready, click on the upper left corner of Sheet3 to select all cells (i.e. the whole worksheet), press Ctrl+C, then from menu select Edit -> Paste Special -> Values.
As a result, you will have the desired numbers in Sheet3. You can then copy them to Sheet2, if you wish.


I have assumed that 1____________ 10000 in your post means 1 in column A and 10000 in column B.
If 1____________ 10000 is in a single cell, then the above formula will not work, another one, a more complicated one will need to be used. I'll wait for you feedback before working it out.

A few days ago I turned on my computer, and instead of doing it's usual thing, something odd happened. IIRC the message from BIOS was: "BIOS recovering from HD.........". Then the computer switched itself off, and that was it. When I tried turning it on again it ran for about 5 seconds, then switched off, on for 5 sec, off, on for 5 sec etc. No beeps at all, no POST no anything.

I've never had such a BIOS message before, so I thought that it might be either the mobo or psu that was causing the trouble. Therefore, I started unplugging the HD's to see if the lesser power requirements would help - still nothing.

So I bought a new mobo. Same result, except it doesn't keep restarting - everything powers up, but there are no beeps or anything. Today, I got myself a new psu, thinking that would be my problem solver. Wrong again.

Now I'm at a loss - can a fried CPU cause these problems, could it be the RAM (I have two blocks - both tried separately to no avail)? I'm pretty sure the casing isn't shorting anything.

I'm going to test the RAM and GFX card in a friend's computer - is it more or less safe to assume that the problem is the CPU if those other parts work?

Thanks in advance.
Edit: Problem solved - apparently both RAM blocks were fried.

Hi GUys im a beginner when it comes to macro excel and im just wondering if you could help me with what i am working.

The macro needs to be able to search hundrends of cells in the same column (sheet1) and if a cell/s in that column matches a cell in another worksheet (Sheet2), then the macro would copy the data on the next column of the cell in sheet 2 and paste it to the matched cell corresponding column in sheet1.

Furhtermore it may also be possible that 5 or more cells in sheet1 may match a single cell in sheet2 and so forth.

Sheet1 Column A1 to A5 has the word "dog" and in Sheet2 the word "dog" has a corresponding points of "3" so the macro should copy the "3" and paste it to Sheet1 Column B1 to B5 (next column where the "dog" word can be found).

Another problem with Windows 7.

Every time I have to use it, it seems it is designed as one-size-fits-all only for brainwashed morons with no creative mind. So sophisticated functions and data are removed with every new OS. Why?

This time it is FONTS.

I have a discerning mind when adding data to my images for publication and broadcast. Windows Vista (my OS in London 65 miles away) offers so many varied fonts and I found one only 2 days ago which was perfect for photo labels, .....i.e. appropriate for my subject. I edited 7 images for a gallery using this font, in bold and italic.

Now I need it again ]urgently for the last image for broadcast on Monday 17 September, before I return to London ....and Vista.

But I cannot remember the font name. I cannot locate it anywhere on Windows 7! If it is there, it is made impossible to identify! This is soul-destroying!

I have attached it on a JPG for you to look at.

Can anyone please tell me what is the name of the font and from where (and how) I can download it by tomorrow?

Thanks in advance because it is vital to complete what I am doing.

Hi there,

I'm a newbie here, so thanks in advance for anyone who can help me from loosing the plot with some video conversion I need to get my head around.

Basically I have some very strict video conversion parameters to adhere to, and Quicktime Pro, and a host of other Apple Mac based converters I've tried just don't accommodate. I was hoping that someone might be able to point me in the direction of a (Ideally free, though not imperative) conversion app that does it all.

I absolutely HAVE to be able to fettle with the following for my target outputs;
File Format (Mp4 and 3gp)
Frame Size and progressive scanning
Max file size indication would be helpful so I know how big, in Mb, the target video will be
The ability to crop to any screen size
De-interlacing of target files
Codec (H264, H264HD, H264BP and MPEG-4)
Profile (Baseline, Baseline Level 3.1, Profile 0 and Simple)
Frame rate (from 15 to 30 fps)
Max Bit rate
Reference frame
I-frame interval

Format (AAC and AAC-LC (48Khz))
Stereo or Mono
Bit rate (Variable or fixed, 64 to 160bps)

As I mentioned, I have found some apps that do some of the above parameters, but none that can handle it all.
Am I asking too much here? Or is there a great app (Free or Paid) that will save my sanity and allow this level of tweakage?

Many thanks for any help anyone can offer.

Answer:VERY Specific video conversion settings needed - Can't find an app to handle them

Best free transcoders I've used are Handbrake and VideoMonkey. Paid, would be Sorenson Squeeze and Adobe Media Converter.
Could you give us a list of what you've tried, so we don't just suggest everything you've tried and didn't like?

About 2 days ago I tried to install age of empires, wouldn't work due to some problem with driver compatibility with direct draw. I came across something that told me to uninstall my current Graphics Card from the device manager. So i did this, and alas, Age of Empires worked.

The screen was low resolution but i changed this and its fine now. But none of my other games work, and when i went back on my device manager, i could not find my graphics card. Just something called Standard VGA Graphics adapter. I have tried uninstalling this but everytime i start up my laptop it automatically reinstalls it. And my old graphics card aparently doesn't exist anymore, can anyone help?

Im running 32bit Home Basic, My graphics card was an SiS Mirage 3. Anything else you guys need, just reply or drop me an email

Thanks in advance


Answer:Help is badly needed! Cant find my graphics card on device manager.

Hello Lewis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

When you uninstalled the device, you actually only uninstalled the driver for the device instead. Vista then assigned a generic driver for your graphics card since it (hardware) is still installed on the computer. This is why you now see Standard VGA Graphics adapter instead.

Installing the latest video driver will change this and have the proper graphics adapter name listed in Device Manager afterwards.

Hope this helps,

Hi All

Thanks for your help

I have a nominated start date that will be different for different sheets.
I have tables with the same date as the nominated start date.
I'm trying to put a macro together that will grab the nominated start date and then go the Data1 table and find the same date.
Once i have this date I want to be able to go to any column and then sum the data up to the top of the table.

Can someone tell me if I am on the right track or can you see a better way of doing the above. I have attached a sheet with a few macros to try and do this, but just not getting there. Below is one that looked promising, but I don't fully understand the commands.

Sub SumData()
'Find the same date and then sum the data in any column I choose to the top of the table

Dim Mth As Variant
With WorkhsheetFunction
Mth = Cells.Find(What:="Start Date:").Offset(0, 1).Value
X = Application.Match("Data1", Range("A1:A500"), 0)
Y = Application.Match("Mth", Cells(X, 1).Resize(1), 0)
Cells((X + Y) 0,2).Offset(, 1).Resize(, 1).Select
End With
End Sub

I want to search my hardrive manually for non needed files. Files from spam, web, cookies, ect.. I know from installing and uninstalling programs and surfing the web the computer gathers non needed files. I do not run outlook on this machine so I am not downloading email. And all my digital pictures are on a seperate drive. I have a 60GB hardrive with WIN XP SP3 and 24 gb music on it. With WIN XP using 5 GB this = 29GB used with estimated 31GB free. I have a funny feeling there is just a bunch of files eating up space. I wanted to give this a try before re-installing windows completly for education purposes.
I want to start a C:\

What file extentions can I search for?

All suggestions and directions welcome.

Answer:Hardrive Full: Help Trying to find un-needed files to free up space

Hello rentonhighlands

1. Try disabling Hibernation and you will gain disk space equal to the amount of RAM on your system.
Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance / Power Options / Hibernate tab, and uncheck the Enable hibernation box

If it is enabled you will see that XP has reserved disk space equal to your RAM for hibernation

You can re-enable hibernation easily by checking the box again as XP recreates the hiberfil.sys file.

?Hiberfil.sys? is the size of your RAM since XP dumps the whole memory to this file before putting the system into hibernation

2. Reduce space used by System Restore
To adjust the amount of space System Restore uses on a disk, go to the Control Panel ('Start > Control Panel') and double click the 'System' icon. Then click on the 'System Restore' tab on the system applet. Depending on your disk setup use the following instructions:

? If you have just a single partition on your system: You can adjust the space system restore uses on the disk by moving the slider on this page left (to decrease space usage) or right (to increase space usage. The maximum space usage is 12% and is the default.

If you have a multiple partitions on your system or multiple disks: Click on the drive you want to adjust in the available drives section on the System Restore page and then click the settings option. You can then adjust the space system restore uses on that drive by moving the slider to the left (to decrease space usage) or right (to i... Read more

I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:

* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options
* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'
* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosen

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

i need ur help with this guys. when i tried to reset my laptop, it read "could not find the files needed". mine is an Acer aspire V5, it didn't came with an installation disc or media, i know it should have a hidden partition for recovery, but i think the system is having trouble with it. i think a malware might have done this, i got malwarebytes, i tried norton online scan and eset online scan, but did not detect any. before this, i experienced my firefox browser icon on the taskbar progressing a download but cant see anything on downloads tab, i closed firefox several times, but it continued everytime i opened firefox, and it did finished its download. later i noticed explorer.exe is always having an established connection in TCPview, without me opening any apps. so i thought i really need to reset the computer, but this is my problem. i would really appreciate anyone's help. i've already run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth restore health on command prompt, but it showed no integrity violation.

Answer:Can't reset windows 8 "could not find the files needed"

There are several issues in your question that need to be addressed.

First, you say you are running Windows 8.0, you have not upgraded to 8.1?

Second, Explorer may have a connection for several reasons. Such things as being signed in with a Microsoft Account and not a Local user, or OneDrive, or even apps that are suspended and not actually shut down. But I would not do a Reset for that.

If Firefox is doing something online, you might try opening the Resource Monitor and check the Network Tab. If you put a check mark in the Firefox image, it will filter for just that and you might be able to see what it is doing. If it is downloading a file, doing the same process on the Disk tab might tell you where it is downloading to. It could just be one of its updates.

The problem with your system not wanting to Reset will depend on if you have updated to 8.1. If you have not deleted the Recovery Image partition, you should be able to see it in Disk Management. If it is there, open an Administrative Command prompt window and type reagentc /info to see if the image is registered on your system.

If you have an updated 8.1 install, a Reset will take you back to Windows 8, if it works, and a Refresh will not work unless you have made a Custom Refresh Image.

Hi im about to buy a new genuine vista ultimate pack from someone...

after doing some research ive found out that there are two types of vista ultimate on sale... one is vista ultimate [ultimate] (expensive) and the other is vista ultimate [OEM] (cheap) ...

the problem is.. what are the differences between these two ultimates? and how can i know that the vista im about to buy is [OEM] or [Ultimate].. im suppose that the [ultimate] ver should be much better than the [oem] as the higher the price is the better will be the quality...

so im about to get some guidelines from u experts here regarding this.. please provide me some details so that im not lost or being fooled.. thanx in advance..

Answer:Need more details...

oem and retail version are basically the same. The big difference is oem is only for a newly built computer that never had an operating system installed on it. It falls under the system builders eula.

When I click in HELP/ABOUT in IE 9 I get the following:-

"IE9 v.9.0.8112.16421
Product ID 03553-112-5462972-85083"

Do I have 64bit version ?

Answer:IE Help/About - Details - Is this 64-bit?

Short answer: No.

If Microsoft kept it the same as IE8, the bit version will be listed on the same line, and to the right of the IE version.

So in your case it would read, Version: 9.0.8112.16421 64-bit Edition.
Since you do not show that extra information I would say you have the 32-bit Edition installed.

You can, if you want to install the 64x edition, go to Internet Explorer - Web Browser for Microsoft Windows Open the Select your version drop down box, there you will see the option to select either the 32 or 64 bit versions, select the 64bit and download that.

Question: Details of an MSI

Hi all,

Could you guys check whether you can see the details/properties of an MSI on right-clicking? Properties like ProductName, Description, Manafacturer, etc.

The problem is I can see these properties in some other OS'es like XP/Windows 7, but for same MSI I can't see in Vista/Server 2008. I tried upgrading my Windows Installer from 4.0 to 4.5, but still the issue is not resolved. Also tried disabling UAC. That didn't work either. I upgraded Windows Installer from 3.x to V 4.5 in one of my XP machines.. and I can still see the details there. So, this is not a Windows Installer 4.x issue.

I had also checked the MSI in Orca, and I can see the property fields there. Could someone help me regarding this?
