RAM capping while downloading large files

Question: RAM capping while downloading large files

Hi fellow techspotters,

odd thing has happened to my friend, whos pc I have handbuilt. Every time he starts downloading lets say 1gb or bigger file his RAM starts to fill up. No processes are visible to be the cause. Cpu usage stays on normal level, but the ram just keeps on filling. Until it is throttled by capping on 8gb and he is forced to pause the download and reboot the machine, and the RAM is cleaned.

I posted this under networking, because I doubt that it is a hardware related problem.
The numbers go some like this. 8gb of RAM = 20gb of download -> cap -> restart -> ram clear -> restore download. And the RAM gets used oddly like its ment to behave like this. Does it store something on the way?

It isnt actually a problem, my friend can cope with it. But I as a builder of the PC would really like to solve this. I have never encountered such memory behavior with downloads before.

Screencaps of the situation available when I get home from work.

cheers

Preferred Solution: RAM capping while downloading large files

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: RAM capping while downloading large files

Does the machine have an anti-virus installed? And if so, does memory usage have the same effect with or without active scanning?

When monitoring Task Manager, which process is using the memory allotment that appears to be accumulating? Killing the process should clear memory usage by that process.

Forgive me as I beat around the bush, not really knowing what to say.

I'm trying to download a 4,280MB file (SuSE DVD ISO), but most download programs (I've tried wget and Firefox's built in one) seem to get confused about half way through the download, and begin counting into negative percentages (and file sizes). Does anyone know of a program that is capable of downloading such a large file without experiencing problems?

Thanks!

Answer:Trouble downloading large files

Sometimes the download links are bad. Sometimes I think it's the browser--maybe too many open pages. If you continue to have the problem you could look into a download manager.

Hey guys, need help on this one...
my pc restarts when i'm trying to download a large file or when it takes quite some time in downloading files. what could be the cause of this?
i'm using winxp pro w/ sp1 installed, plus a firewall zap.
hope you could shed some light on this matter.
thanks!

Answer:My PC restarts when I'm downloading large files

Most likely there is a system error that is causing the reboot. First thing you need to do is disable "autoreboot on error" from the control panel. I don't remember exactly how to do it (I currently am using Win98 and 2K) but I do know that it's listed in the XP help database. Just do a search on the database for error reboot and you should be able to find it.

Once that is clear, you can find out exactly what is causing the dump. From there, it's a matter of doing a net search for the error codes. That should give you an idea as to exactly what is happening, and get an idea what may be causing it.

To give more info than that, it would help if you could post how you are connecting, who your ISP is, and what hardware you are using for connection.

I have a problem with downloading large files from the internet. I don't think its an ISP connection issue because a second computer on the same ADSL router works fine. Files that are around 4 to 5 MB download okay. Larger files start to download okay but then eventually hangs. No error message appears. You can tell from the Connection Status dialoge box that network traffic has stopped.The same thing happens when downloading from ftp sites using a separate ftp client (not MS IE).Small files okay, large files hangs.

Yo,

Right now I'm trying to download a service pack for someone but its not working! It gets up to a certain amount and then kind of freezes, the transfer rate is still there, everything looks ok but theres no activity.
I have an adsl connection with bulldog and im just trying to download the default xp way(no getright or download managers). when the download freezes I can still get web pages to work and, checking in the router, the connection hasn't been dropped.

Anyone help?
 

Answer:Probs downloading large files...

Try using one of those download managers. They will enable you to resume the download to finish it. They also allow for multiple threads to a server to get the max connection speed out of your connection.

I need to download updates for my computer.
My problem is I only have dial-up inernet acces,with a 56kbs modem. When my downloads start, the speeds start at about around 20kbs then rapidly decline to around 2kbs and then stay steady between 2kbs and about 4kbs.

Is there a way I can speed up the downloads without swithching internet service or spending lots of money?
I need to download about 294mb worth of files for my computer and can not be on the computer all day waiting for the downloads. Total of 3 or 4 files and they are all large. Also High speed internet access is unavailable in my area at this time or else I would have it.

I have a Dell Dimention E521 with an AMD Athlon 64x2 dual core processor 4000+ 2.10 GHz,2046mb of RAM,32 bit operating system, with Windows Vista Home Premium,and a Conexant D850 PCI V.92 modem. I hope this information helps.

Any assisstance will be a great help. Thank you.

Answer:Slow Downloading Of Large Files

Well if your dial-up is 56k, then your average transfer rate should be at around 4-6 Kbps on average. There arent really any ways to optimise your internet speed though, you probably will have to get better internet when it is availible otherwise there isnt much that you can do. Also, dont download any programs that say they optimise internet speed, because, they are Spyware and do either nothing or slow down your internet even more. Also, I would say that downlaoding that much with dial-up could take a couple of days. Hope you get broadband in your area soon!

I recently had to replace the HD in a Dell Inspiron laptop running Windows XP Pro SP3. I rebuilt the HD installing Windows, FireFox, Malwarebytes, and other needed software programs. I tried to download the printer driver for an HP printer which was 70 MBs. After restarting the download a few times I was finally able to get all of it. The client would like the HP software package as well which is 500+ MBs. When I attempt to download this file, about 25 MBs download and then then it stalls and times out. I have tried on different days but had the same result. The laptop is connected to the internet using Charter Spectum with an ethernet cable to the modem. This is a very fast connection at about 60 mbps. The 500 MB download should complete in about 7-10 minutes. Smaller downloads are almost instantaneous. It seems to be specific to the large file downloads that take more time. I have tried resetting the TCP/IP protocol and running the WINSOCK fix. I have also tried disabling the firewall in VIPRE Internet Secuity but nothing I have tried has resolved the download issue. Would appreciate any and all suggestions. I have googled the problem but have not found a solution there either.

I've had this issue for a few weeks now and it went away about a week ago but it just recently came back. The issue started when I decided to reinstall everything on to my computer after some performance issues thinking it would help w/ it. After I installed windows and all my smaller files though, I started downloading larger files such as games and this is when the freeze happens. The computer completely freezes and I'm unable to do anything unless I hard reset my computer. The problem consistently happens and I can't find a fix to the problem.

Answer:Trouble downloading large files with Windows XP PRO SP3

Easiest solution is to download the file on to a computer off site using a different service provider. Put the file on a USB stick and take it to the client.

I think the client needs to contact Charter about the difficulty downloading items from the internet.
1. Does Charter still support XP? That might be part of the problem.
2. Is there a limit on data downloaded? Comcast has caps in some areas. I'm not sure what happens when you approach or go over the limit because I am no where near any data allowance cap.

Hi, all. Wondering if anyone can help with this. When downloading large files, either via uTorrent, Steam, or other services, at random times my computer will freeze, requiring a hard restart. No BSOD or anything, just a freeze. It doesn't happen every single time I download large files, but it does happen often enough. I suspect that it may be a problem with the wireless network card, but I'm not exactly sure, and wanted to get some insight before I replaced anything. It's been happening since I built the machine, but I narrowed it down to downloading large files just recently. I ran the diagnostic tool, and I am attaching the zip, though there is no minidump, of course. Thank you in advance.

Hello,
For a while now, I've been having a recurring BSOD giving the message "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I believe it may be related to something to do with my network settings/drivers, as more recently, I noticed that it occured when I attempted to download game updates that were around 1.5GB in size. I have tried reinstalling networks drivers, but it does not appear to have worked. Any help would be appreciated
Thank you.

Answer:BSOD during downloading of large files, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

You are right, it is some network issue. But apparently no reason behind such a network crash is not visible in any dumps, which is a sound ground.

If you have any network bandwith monitoring/controlling program, uninstall it as a test. Uninstall peerblock too. Letus see if it causes any difference.

I've recently switched from Verizon 2 Mbps to Time Warner 15 Mbps (both were wireless), and installed a new router that I bought off the tech guy while he was there. After setting up the router with Warner and hooking it up, I noticed a strange problem with this new internet connection:

Whenever I'd download a large file, say larger than a few MB, my internet would lock up and crash - forcing me to disconnect from and then reconnect to the wireless signal to resolve the problem. This happens either during large file downloads, or heavy traffic moments such as loading multiple webpages at once. So, whenever my internet connection dies on me, a quick windows diagnostic says that the DNS cannot be contacted because there is no ethernet connection. What's more, though, is that this apparently only happens with my wireless connection, because the downstairs computer which is hooked up to the router with an ethernet cable never experiences this problem.

This has me genuinely confused here. Is my computer simply forgetting for a split second that it uses wireless and just defaults to looking for a LAN connection? Or is this a problem with the router, or the service provider itself - Time Warner - since I never had this problem with Verizon.
 

Answer:Internet cuts out whenever downloading large files

from Verizon 2 Mbps to Time Warner 15 Mbps (both were wireless)Click to expand...

Please educate me on this. Verizon has both DSL and mobile wireless, and 2 Mbps sounds reasonable for either. But I thought that Time Warner was only (coax) cable? And 15 Mbps download sounds to me like a cable service, not mobile wireless and not fixed wireless.

What networking equipment (brand and model) do you have? You mentioned a "modem" and a "router." Anything else?

Hello I have a "little" problem.
When i start downloading large data files with multiple connections (it does not matter which download manager i use - flash get, jdownloader, IDM) it starts to consume a lot of MB until it consumes all of it, but when i close the download manager only about 200 MB becomes free (before downloading started i had used only 900/2048 MB and after closing download manager, it is used ~1800 MB / 2048 MB and there is no program in task manager which would consume such a lot of memory and i can free the ram only by restarting computer. This happens to me on celan RC version and even on clean RTM version.
I have quite a fast conenction 50/50 Mbps so the RAM runs out quite fast (in 15 minutes i have no free ram).
This happens only in Win7 (in Vista, XP it downloads without any memory leak using the same download managers)

Does anyone have the same problem or know how to solve it?

Hello, My computer started freezing while downloading large files in uTorrent, About 10 minutes after starting uTorrent the PC starts to be really really slow and 1 minute after it freezes, only restarted/shutdown solve the problem, I've been using uTorrent for years and never had this problem, I mean it happens when I download a 15GB movie, but two months ago I downloaded a 170GB TV series and no problems were with that.

Did a clean install of Win 8.1 Pro x64 on a desktop i7-2660K machine a week ago. Since then, there's been a problem that didn't exist before the clean install, namely web page loading is very slow while downloading large files, a few hundred mb to a few gb. Pause the downloads and pages load normally. Before the install, the page file was set to system managed size. System drive is fast Plextor SSD and RAM is 16gb. I've now tried 32gb max and still slowness. Not sure where to turn on this. This is a relatively fast cable system (Charter), with line to the computer through an Linksys E1200 router (for wireless laptop). Any ideas? One thing I hadn't done yet is reinstall the router on the desktop, but I just did that and it makes no difference. Is that necessary? Thanks,

Answer:Slow web when downloading large files after clean install

I'm interested in any responses to this as well, because in my opinion Microsoft screwed it up.

I'm not sure when they changed it, but I noticed they changed this quite a while back. The change they made seems to give full bandwidth to the first thing you start downloading, but as you've discovered it's a nightmare like this because it means you can't do anything internet related until the download has finished. In the case of a large download, that's frustratingly limiting.

How it was before, Windows seemed to balance the load so you could have something downloading in the background, but still carry on with other things on the internet. How it is now, the second thing you try to access on the internet will usually result in a timed out error and if doesn't it's so incredibly slow that it's unusable.

It's not just with file downloads either, if you've got a heavy loading webpage, you can't just leave it loading that page and go view another webpage, because the first webpage sucks all the bandwidth to itself . Also, if you click a link on a heavy loading webpage, it won't do anything due to the webpage sucking all the bandwidth. So you either have to wait for the whole page to load first, or you have to open the link in a new tab, then close the heavy loading webpage tab.

I don't know what they were thinking to be honest because it's pretty bad as it is now. Maybe on a super-fast Microsoft LAN they don't notice how bad it is, but in the real world the changes t... Read more

Dear all,

The application I'm working on uses the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control 6.0 (Inet) with the GetChunk method in VB6 to download updated components from our server. This has worked fine on hundreds of installs with XP and more recently on Vista.

However, on one user's Windows Vista system, the application returns a runtime error 7 "Out of memory" when downloading files larger than, say, 6 MB.

Installing Vista hotfixes has had no effects; disabling installed antivirus software (Norton) had no effect.

Does this problem sound familiar to anyone? Your thoughts on this subject are greatly appreciated.

Hi, I recently had to upgrade my harddrives when I kept getting a "No load past start screen" error. I pinpointed the area to one of the harddrives and replaced it accordingly. After doing a fresh install of the OS and everything, I noticed my computer was a little sluggish and the internet was slow. Having being a little.. idiotic about reprogramming computers, I asked a friend who works on computers to fix it. He did the same thing that I did, but reinstalled the drivers differently and the internet worked perfectly after that.

After getting the computer back, I started installing my games and noticed the internet kept disconnecting on my laptop alone (While the rest of the house has internet) and that it would usually spike at a certain point then drop to a 0kbs download and the internet icon would show the "Internet has disconnected" icon. Thinking it was just a minor setback I didn't think anything of it, well its been a month now and it is still disconnecting.

I have tried updating the drivers, but to no avail as they're all up to date (Or so it seems) and ran virus scans/reg cleaners. If anyone has any tips please help!

Now, back to the case,

I am using Sony Vaio laptop with, i5 2410M, 8gb of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 410M graphics card and sony motherboard, running Windows 7 Professional.

Couple of days ago computer started freezing when downloading torrent files, also during copying any larger files from partition D. I run checkdisk, literally checked what I could, found nothing, so I decided I will do a clean install of Windows. That did not help either so after excluding hard drive failure (no bad sectors, no errors) I decided to nuke the whole drive so everything would be fresh.
Used DBAN, which finished after 10 hours or so, no errors, everything went smoothly, including the install of fresh Windows 7 Professional.

There are no bug, errors, hard drive problems with the computer, I did run checkdisk again, checked the drivers, everything is fine.

I have managed to narrow the issue to Vuze Client, which was freezing the whole system, first after 5-15 minutes, then immediately after opening application. I also tried Deluge and BitLord - same thing, works fine and then starts to freeze the system.

I am able to use Chrome during the freeze for example, yet my internet connection is frozen too. I cannot restart the computer through the start menu, even if i mana... Read more

Hi,

when I download large files (>a few GB) without throttling my download speed to about 300kB/s my internet connection dies for a few minutes. At regular downloadspeed (~1.6 MB/s) it dies at around 500MB, at slower speeds it seems to get a bit further before halting. (600kB/s gets me to around 750MB, 300kB/s finished the last download successfully, file was ~3GB)

I remain connected to the router (packets received/sent still going strong) but I can't access the internet and if I use the windows troubleshooter it tells me IP configuration was invalid or default gateway unavailable.

I googled the problem and the only tips I found were "throttle your download speed" (works, but that's not a good solution) and "disable 'allow other network users to disable connection'" which did nothing.

I get the same problem on my laptop, but when the internet on my PC is crashed I can still access the web from my laptop and vice versa.

Thanks in advance for you help!

Answer:Internet dies for a few minutes when downloading large files quickly

My bet goes to router

Is your modem and router separate devices? Would your connection work if you plug the modem to computer directly?

I guess some routers have a passthrough configuration, if above is not feasible.

If all above fail try factory reset on the router. Make sure you have all the configuration details noted down, you will need them after the reset.

I put together a mostly new machine on Saturday. Everything is new but power supply, case, and graphics card. Within an hour of getting windows installed, I got my first BSOD while downloading some games. The error code appears to be pretty generic, so after looking on google for a few minutes, I decided it may have been an issue caused by not installing windows updates, so I initialized them and started browsing the web. There were quite a few updates, including SP1, but before they could finish downloading, I got another BSOD which caused the updates to fail.

After trying a handful of times, I was able to get most of the updates to install (there are still 4 that fail every time, not sure if it's related or not), but I'm still experiencing the BSOD. I left my computer on to download a game through Origin and when I came back a little over an hour later, it had reset after crashing (I got the notification after signing in). I started the download again, went to bed, and when I woke up, the computer had restarted again after a crash.

I've used WhoCrashed to analyze the crashes and it's calling out both the graphics driver and the ethernet driver as possible culprits. I have the latest driver available from the manufacturer's website for both.

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, first time using the site but I need some help.

I am currently running a 16gb setup on my pc running windows10 and have a big problem. Every time I use applications that are memory heavy I run into an error making me close down the application or memory/file corruption or leakage may occur. However, if I check my task manager I can see that the memory usage is at 80% and only using around 8gb or less(I have actually added up the amount of space every single app have taken up manually and it was under 8gb while over 90%). I constantly have this problem and never browsed through task manager much before so I am not really sure when the problem arose.
Here are some screenshots showing my comp specs and a task manager screenshot

Thanks in advance if anybody replies!

Greetings,

Looking for solutions where we can get files copied or transferred to another server on the network that is at another branch and connected via private fiber; problem is retaining the permissions and capping the transfer speed (so as not to clog up the pipe completely).

Examples of solutions that don't work:
FTP would work for capping the speed, but permissions and security settings are not retained.
Plain copy+paste would work for permissions and security settings, but cannot be capped and would clog the pipe.

Need something that retains permissions and security and can have a capped transfer speed.

I will shortly need to move a large number (20,000) very large (20-30Mb) image files and associated tiny xmp sidecar files from one hard drive to another.

MS file explorer will make a meal of this so any suggestions for alternatives please? I have several folders each containing many thousands of files as above so moving a folder en-bloc is an option rather than file by file?

Answer:moving large number of large files to new drive

Simply drag and drop the folder(s).

Might want to do a copy first, verify that everything did indeed get copied, and then delete the originals.

I've been trying to download a large file from the net. When it gets to a certain point my internet provider disconnects me for lack of activity. When this happened on my old computer it would atleast save what was downloaded and allow me to start where i left of. Why isn't my new computer doing this? is it a program? All input appreciated.

I recently purchased Visual Studio 6.0 and want to download a 132MB file with samples of the several venues comprising the Studio. Yesterday, I spent 15 hours at my machine trying to download this large file (56k Modem) and at 131+MB, my connection to my ISP broke and I lost it! I have tried several times before and after this crushing loss and have had similar problems.

Is there any software or other means to "restart" when a downloading process has been broken off and continue the download? That seems possible, say, when downloading Microsoft service packs and upgrades . . . but can I do it too?

Thank you!

Outlook Express is trying to download 4 messages. My connection is slow unfortunately, and the first message, at least, is probably a large one. It is still downloading after an hour when the the server disconnects without any of the messages arriving! Is there any way round the problem?

Answer:Problem downloading large e-mails

Try using a web based e-mail provider such as Hotmail. You can see the size of your e-mail before opening it and then if it's so large that it's going to take an hour to download then reboot your internet connection to take advantage of the full time allowed before your cut off period.

The situation is as follows: I've got a computer that doesn't show particularly high CPU usage, but multiple instances of explorer.exe spawn and take up lots of memory, up to 2BG of ram each.
Based on looking at the network traffic for this computer on my router it looks like it's connecting to web sites and downloading video files, .mp4 and .flv files. I'm assuming these files are being stored in ram by explorer.exe somehow and this is whats using up all the ram.
 
Internet explorer doesn't seem to work, most of the time it simply doesn't load web pages, so it's probably part of the infection or infected by the same virus.
 
Also while multiple instances of explorer.exe are running GPU utilization goes up to 100% as reported by process explorer, I'm not really sure why that is happening.
 
Unfortunately I've already tried running Malwarebytes, combofix, Eset's online scanner, Kaspersky's online scanner andTrend Micro's online scanner earlier today. Combofix deleted a couple of files but that's it, nothing else is finding anything, the problem seems to still be there tho. It looks like dllhost.exe and svchost.exe are probably involved because even in safe mode while the computer isn't doing anything at all these services will spawn and sometimes despawn and will respawn each-other if killed.

Answer:Possible virus downloading large amounts of data in background

Well eventually after looking at the IPs that it was connecting to using Wireshark. One of the IPs was 31.128.104.126. Searching that resulted in a page suggesting it was associated with the TR/Gamarue.A.99 virus. Searching that indicated that Avira actually would have some success finding and removing it.
 
Despite the fact that no other antivirus scans found any of these things avira found the following.
 
TR/Gamarue.A.99
e2h[1].htm - html/iframe.arx2
cpc[1].htm - js/iframe.el.2
vsvusgvu.exe - tr/kuluoz.a.87
costcoform_overland_park.exe - tr/kuluoz.a.87 trojan
 
As well as a bootrecord virus boo/cidox.b.
Avira was able to remove all the other viruses and I was able to find instructions on this site to use Kaspersky's TDSSKiller to remove the boot record virus and was successful there. After that everthing was mostly better except IE was having problems loading some pages. A quick restore/repair of IE's default settings seems to have fixed that. I'll be keeping my eye on the computer for a while to make sure there's no weird memory or GPU utilization, and I'll never know what sort of stuff that virus was up to in the background using up to 4gb of RAM with explorer.exe but at least it seems to be gone.

I'm not real sure what is causing this but I've been trying to download a 600 meg file in Internet Explorer. It will work fine for a while and then all of a sudden my connection stops working for everything (download, torrent, icq, wow, etc). Then I restart the computer and modem and it's back. This is pretty annoying and I'm not sure what causes it. I'm on a cable modem and then into a hub that splits the connection between two computers (however one is currently off/inactive). Any ideas? Thanks.

Problem 1 - My 100gb laptop harddrive is at almost full capacity but I don't know why. I used a program to find the top 100 largest files, but there's nothing out of the ordinary.

Unless you are doing very large audio or visual downloads, you are unlikely to exceed the cap.I used to have a 2GB cap and yet, even though I'm online for up to 15 hours a day for long stretches and that includes various downloads, I never exceeded the maximum.

Welcome
If you increase the timeout, you should be able to correct the problem
1. Open Windows Live Mail, go to Tools > Accounts...
2. Choose your email account and then click on "Properties"
3. Click on the "Advance" tab
4. Under 'Server Timeouts', drag the slider to change it to a more longer or maximum period of timeouts.

Probably caused by extremely large attachments, or internet slowing down. There are various sites to check the speed.

I recently had a new modem box installed for my cable modem and it came with some odd problems that my ISP claims is a problem on our end.

Basically, we have an 8-mbps limit on our net, which is more than enough for the activities we do (online games, web browsing, video streaming). It's a higher limit that we used to have on our old cable subscription.

However, downloads of any sort, mostly video streaming and any straight file download off Firefox seems to cause our network activity to spike to nearly 100%, causing all other bandwidth-using operations to slow to a crawl or disconnect entirely. It doesn't matter if we're downloading a small file or large one, or if it's at 10 kb/s or 900 kb/s, all other internet-using programs get completely bogged down while the download runs. But while all other programs suffer, the download that spikes the activity works just fine and can download at very high-speeds.

It feels the same as a BitTorrent throttler (nobody on our network uses BitTorrent or any torrenting programs). We've since switched routers with absolutely no change in symptoms. Our ISP claims they can't see any issues when they run us through some basic diagnostic tests.

We've yet to try hooking up the modem straight to our primary PC (the next step in my schedule) but I was wondering if there were any other tests I could do to try and narrow down the problem, as I find that the router is unlikely the issue. It seems like it's ... Read more

Hello World,

I was wondering if someone could tell me if there was a way to cap memory usage for specific tasks on an indefinate basis. I'm an x mac user who got very used to setting maximum memory usage in the preferences of any program file.

The first thing you are going to tell me to do is go into task manager and change priorities. That's not what I mean. In my experience, priorities are not what their cracked up to be, and tend to do more harm than good.

Lets say I want Program X to never reach beyond 50mb in memory. Is there a way to do this in windows, or possibly a program to do so?

This way if computer B wants to download the new demo of farcry or what have you on fileplanet, computer A's ping in ut2k4 doesn't go through the roof

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this done? Putting a hard cap on the nic would be great, but I have no idea how I would do that. I also wouldn't like extra programs running on either of our computers just so we can download slower . Would chaning the tcp recieve window size in registry help me out on this one as well?
 

Answer:Need help capping bandwidth in personal network

most of the $50-75 routers can't do what you want.

ya gotta spend more money.

I have has this problem from day one on a 932c printer and I finally got around to write to HP about it. They responded and acknowledge the problem in the e-mail with a link to a document on this issue:

http://h20015.www2.hp.com/en/docume...ocName=bpa02019

Also here is the text that was sent back:

According to your e-mails, there is ink in the capping station of your
HP Deskjet 932C printer and you believe that the ink from the cartridges
is leaking into the capping station.

It is normal for a little ink to be present in the capping station or
the small rectangle containing absorbent material at the home position.
There are multiple uses of the capping station. Some of these uses are:

1. Cleaning the nozzles.
This will clear any dust particles that may have been stuck on the
nozzles during the printing process.

2. Cleaning excessive ink.
The often times excessive ink may be sprayed and some of it will
remain at the nozzles and may cause ink smearing. The absorbent
material will absorb this excessive ink and keep the nozzles clean.
Hence, the ink being observed in the capping station.

3. The wet material in the capping station caps the nozzles and
prevents the ink from drying at the nozzles.

This "little ink" would be a mountain if I havving been cleaning it everytime I refill the cartridges! As far as I am concerned it is a real problem, probably due to their 'negitive pressure' black cartridge design.

I haven't seen any other posts anywhere ... Read more

Our servers are going into a data center here in a few months and we are being put on a 20mbps connection that is "burstable" to 100mbps.

I, however, do not want this. We are getting charged a great minimum price for the first 20mbps and I don't want to go over that. Is there a feature or good program with little overhead that can cap a server 2003 box's bandwidth to a set amount. (20mbps)
 

Answer:capping bandwidth at server level

I think this would probably do the trick.
Pretty customizable and doesn't have much overhead. Used it to cap my sisters
at dial-up speed while I game and it works fine.

How can I do this? My brothers keep eating the bandwidth with video streaming. I have already put a school schedule rule on it so the internet for them turns off at 7:30PM.
 

Answer:capping bandwidth of users on D-Link DIR-655

Take a look at the QoS / Traffic Shaping settings
link should be like this (change the IP to your router's)

Set your traffic priority higher, and drop their priority lower based on IP

Hey guys,

I just got a free upgrade from my cable provider to 50mbps (woot).

However, it has shined light on a problem that I think predates this upgrade.

My Linksys WRT160Nv3 (firmware is 3.0.0.2) will run at full speed (wired, cat5) for a while, and then after some arbitrary time, it limits the available speed to half (25mbps, measured by speedtest)

A restart of the router corrects this temporarily. It's happened 3x today as I've been testing it.

Does anyone know what might be causing this or how to fix it? My googlefu didn't turn up anything specific to this issue or how to correct it.

Linksys product page doesn't have an updated FW, though I've seen mentions of a 3.0.0.3 version.
 

Answer:Router capping speed @ half periodically?

First thing I'd do is flash that with a modern firmware and see if you get better more consistent results.

A friend of mine went to a yahoo personal profile & went into one of there briefcases, instantly he saw pictures, then it took him directly to a pornographic site. When he hit the Close button it directly took him to another porno website and they kept appearing faster than he could close them. So today I get on the computer & go to explorer & in my C:\Documents and Settings\Jolene\Start Menu there is 2 short cuts labeled ( words I 'd rather not post) I didn't open them I just went to properties got the file names and did a search for those files.

here is the info I retrieved

Size 635 KB
Size on disk 672 KB
16 files/ 5 folders

Size 583 KB
Size on disk 612
15 files / 5 folders

I instantly did a virus scan and found nothing. So what are these files & how do I get rid of them?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks
 

Answer:Very Large files, what are they

Please do this. Go here http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ and download Hijack This. Un Zip it and click on the Hijackthis.exe.

Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

Do NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless. Someone here will be glad to advise you on what to fix.

Answer:large files

You could try using a zip program but I think it very unlikely you will acheive the compression necessary.I would guess that what you want is impossible. You will need a large USB thumbdrive or an external DVD drive.

thx a bunch
 

Answer:OE and sending large files

I beleive email clients will send just about any size. The limit will probably come from the persons inbox size limit. Though trying to send a huge file.... say several, several Megs will probably time out your servers SMTP and fail anyway.
If you want to share big files here are some ideas.
1. FTP
2. Lime wire or some other file share program with direct connect.
3. Remote desktop
4. Free web space (you upload, others check out)
5. Mirc
6. Netmeeting Point to Point

Im sure others have more ideas

Answer:Copying many large files to USB HD, how to que up?

Hi bonkboy,

Welcome to TSG!

The easiest thing to do is write a script.

Let's assume that writing scripts is new or that you do not know how to write one.

Here is an example of a script (Note - since I don't know what OS you are running, this script may not work on your particular OS or any OS due to errors in the script, but it will give you an idea of how to do what you want as a first cut):

#! /bin/sh
# name of script is: copyscript.sh
todir=$1
fromdir=$2
filelist=`ls -1 $1 $fromdir`
for i in $filelist
cp $i $todir
end
exit

Note: $1 and $2 are the first and second parameters passed into the script from the command line.

You would first need to make the script executable:
$ chmod +x copyscript.sh

Then you would need to invoke the script, as follows:
$ ./copyscript.sh <todir> <fromdir>
where you would replace todir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the USB HD is mounted, and, similarly, replace fromdir without the brackets (<>) with the full pathname to the folder aka directory where the files to be copied are currently located.

You can start here to learn about Shell Scripting and go from there according to your system (Windows, Mac, Linux/Unix).

In short I cant copy my music and pic dvd. Have a lot of files (almost 4gb). It gets to about 60% and stops copying as per the screenshot. Sometimes it tells me I have not enough memory to complete the opration (not the case as my hard drives are 160gb with plenty of space)

I have tried copying it to my Master hard drive, slave hard drive and External USB drive, all with the same result.

I think its the number of files (20,000+) as I can copy say a game dvd to my hard drive without issue (4.5gb but like 5 files)

Desperate for a solution or a workaround

This is error message I get (copying 4gb to a drive with 122gb free)

It seems that almost every time I download a file over 300MB, it is corrupted when I try to use it. This mostly affects zips, rars, and game demos, so I imagine it might have something to do with compressed filetypes. I get the errormessage saying that the files are corrupt, and to try downloading it again. So I do, from the same location, and then from another location. Same problems. I just ran Ad-aware, Spybot, and SpySweeper, but the problem has persisted.

It's just downloaded files that don't work, and seems to be limited to compressed files (but that may just be because you don't often download anything bigger that's not in a rar).
