Question: Agree or Disagree? Best Laptops For Emulation 2016 / 2017 (Best Laptops for Emu/Game Emulation 2016/2017)

Just threw this article together, I want all the brain's in this forum to chip in and if there is anything missing from this article (at all!) let me know ASAP, in this thread.

A top quote :

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...
If you are looking to emulate more recent systems then your laptop will have to carry a large capacity to run multiple processes, extensions and to keep up with the emulator's CPU requirement. That's just to start.
If you plan on emulating large 3D-environments as in a 1st-Person-Shooter, such as COD and God of War as well as any extensive RPG-Environment then you will need additional processing requirements and a fairly up-to-date graphics card on your laptop.
For AMD processors you should be looking at FX8000 or better.
For Intel processors you should be looking at i5 or i7 processors such as i5-4670K and i5-3570K, the "K" series allows for overclocking and consistent and smooth performance. Great i7 processors are i7-4700MQ and i7-4930MX and are pretty affordable in comparison to newer variants.
Lastly, for emulating newer games GEForce GPU/Graphics cards are preferred, almost necessary. 2 - 5 GB of RAM minimum on your laptop/Computer will work fine.

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.)

Hey guy's this post is to get information and thoughts about the current GPU market

#1 I find it highly ridiculous the new GPU's released are so hard to get in retail it's making me wonder why it's so hard ?
A: Are Vendors purposely messing with stock ?
B: Is this newer GPU that worth it to get or is next Generation a better choice TI on up
C: Does anyone with a G-sync monitor feels there wouldn't be any difference from your last years flavor 970,980 980ti

#2 How much are you willing to pay and what brand you prefer ?

#3 Last question do you feel Nvidia will stop improving Maxwell based on Pascal being a main focus ?

Thoughts and sorry for the massive Novel

Answer:The Demand for GPU's 2016-2017

A:I dont think so demand for aftermarket stuff is massive founders edition cards are pretty easy to get though , and apart from poor cooling are actually tending to clock higher (NVidia cherry picked for founders)??
B:For me with a 980TI no , im not pay700 quid for 25% increase in fps when its mostly over 100 already waiting for TI
C:I have the same monitor as you , but i dont understand what your asking?

EVGA and ill see how the aftermarket ti's price after launch

yes i beleive maxwell has hit its limit as far as driver improvements go and DX12 is a massive let down so far

My Windows Office 2016 subscription expires this month.
I need to renew but I was wondering when 2017 is going to be released.
I searched online but I found a lot of stuff on 2016, but nothing for 2017.
It probably won't be released this month but I thought I would check, because I don't want to buy it this week and have a new version come out next week.

I don't think MSFT does this for Office like they do for Windows 10, but if we purchase an Office product and there are changes during the year, do they issue updates? I don't recall any.
If they issue 2017 after I buy the 2016 version does it get updated when they release the new version? I don't think they do, but I thought I would ask.

Many thanks!

Answer:Windows Office 2016/2017

Office is not updated to a new version every year - for Windows was 2010, then 2013 then 2016.

If you get a subscription now you will get 2016 (plus latest updates) and it will automatically update to latest version whenever it is released (assuming your subscription is still valid).

Source: Firefox Roadmap for 2016/2017 - gHacks Tech News

Mozilla updated the official Firefox roadmap entry on the organization's Wiki website recently, highlighting major plans for the browser in 2016/2017.

The information highlight some of the features that Mozilla has in store for the next four stable versions of the Firefox browser (Firefox 48 to 51).

The organization lists three main areas of improvement: foundation, customization and context graph.

Foundation refers to improving the browser's responsiveness, reliability and polish. Customization primarily to extending the Web Extension API, and Context Graph to a new recommendation engine Mozilla plans to deliver.

It needs to be noted that the roadmap does not highlight all new features or improvements of the next four or so Firefox releases. Instead, it highlights Mozilla's focus and strategy for those next releases of the web browser.

Firefox Roadmap for 2016/2017
Features that were delayed several times, multi-process Firefox and add-on signing, will find their way into the stable version of Firefox.

Discovery and recommendations seem to be a strong focus going forward.

Chronological Firefox roadmap
The following information lists Firefox versions and the new features Mozilla plans to integrate in them. Target milestones may change however so think of this as the earliest possible version shipping with the feature:

Again, not sure why Lenovo is so hard headed? Resuing to listen to what the MAJORITY of people want. * No OLED displays? How long do we have to wait for this? 2020? * SD Mini slot in the back? Very inconvient. No one is going to use it. (regular SD card on the side works better).* CTRL and FN button still in the wrong location. Why again do we have to fix it in bios when Lenovo can easily make it right? No SD card on my 2015 is the most annoying thing ever. Yes I have a stupid USB SD reader but c'mon. What's the point of thin and light if we have to carry a bunch of add-ons. Especially when the SD card slot doesn't even take up any space. Stupid move. Lenovo is losing sales and customers and it's due to them being out of touch with consumers.   

Answer:The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop. When will the 2017 ...

The 2016 X1 Carbon was a flop for Lenovo? I doubt that. I think it sells very well for Lenovo. You say the majority of people want an SD card reader? Many mobile systems donīt have one anymore, and they still sell. This is a niche requirement, and Lenovo, who is a company with a wide lineup, has other models to fullfill that need. Aka the ThinkPad T460s, which is dimension and weight wise almost exactly the same as your X1 Carbon 2015, but with an SD Card reader, Ethernet, upgradeable RAM etc.

Hello All, There was one similar thread, but it seemed to be closed. When the power is plugged in on this new machine (7th Gen CPU / etc., but not the new model with the pen), there is a very faint static noise (possibly to the speakers). With the power disconnected it is not audible. Anyone else hear this?  FYI, it can be heard when the system is in sleep - not just when it is on.  It does not sound like "coil whine" - it could be bad grounding or something like that. R

Being on the fast ring for Windows 10 updates, I was frustrated that Quicken 2017 and TurboTax 2016 would not work due to a net.framework.4.6.1 error preventing them from running or installing on version 15002. Windows had updated the net. framework to 4.7 and Quicken and Turbo Tax would not recognize it. With the newest 15007 version AND these instructions from the Microsoft web site:

I got them to work. NOTE: you HAVE to change permissions for FULL and CLIENT before you can modify the two version settings by doing this:
1. Using the registry editor go to the Client folder, right click and select permissions. Click on the advanced button. At the top, click on the OWNER change link. In the BOX, put in your user name that is all in caps under the users selection from the previous little window.
2. Once changed, click on the Users (YOURNAME/Users) principal in the box below. Click on Edit. Click on full control box to check it and click on OK and then click on APPLY. It should go through without errors.
3. Do the same thing for the FULL folder.
4. Now you can do the two changes that Microsoft has written up in the problem part of the web page above. Right click on version and click on modify. Change the number from 7 to 6 in the value box and click OK.

Multiple pages on HP's website show the new x360 (Kaby Lake) being used with a stylus. I purchased an active stylus and after being unable to get it to work was told by tech support that the stylus is not supported with the new 13inch Spectre? Are the advertising pages on shop.hp.com incorrect or is there a stylus which works with the new Spectre? The footnotes say that not all hardware works with the Spectre however it seems to be pushing the envelope a little to show someone using the stylus, when apparently none work with this laptop?

Microsoft confirms no more Windows 10 feature updates in 2016; two coming in 2017

Microsoft published a TechNet blog post on Tuesday regarding what's new in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. In the article, the company confirmed that it has two feature updates planned for 2017, but no more for this year.

Based on feedback from organizations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017.

The news is right in line with current rumors. Tuesday's Anniversary Update would be the one feature update for this year, and Redstone 2 - the codename for the next major Windows 10 update - isn't slated to arrive until April 2017. Redstone 3 is rumored as well, but without any release timing, so with today's news, it's presumably late 2017.

It's also in line with what Microsoft has already said. Back in May, the firm said that it would be pushing two feature updates for Windows 10 every year.

The obvious question that you're probably asking is, if Microsoft said that it would release two updates per year, why would the company only release one this year? Well, when Microsoft says the word 'year', it could mean a calendar year, or it could mean a fiscal year, which would be over at the end of June. With that in mind, the firm has released two major updates for Windows 10 every year, and is on pace to do so, even with Redstone 2 coming in April.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Hi cookiesnmilk :)

Usually, the program is supposed to provide the needed .dll if it's not native to Windows. In that case, endinelde.dll is not. I took a look inside the .rar archive, and I cannot find it either, so I would ask the developpers to take a look and re-upload the emulator with the .dll included in it.

Oh just for the record I think its crap that with all the problems that we are occuring with the Sims Games.

On limewire pro, theres this file called Neo Geo Emulator + 80 dreamcast games, and the file type is Ace. and the file size is about 54,000 or 54MBs. Which is prettty small because i know most dreamcast games range from 50-200MB (emulation or just on the regular console).

now my friend told me something about a compressor and how he can compress files to a specific file type. For example he said he can fit up to *4 GIGS* of stuff on a regular 700MB CD-R, which was very surprising. So my question is, is this file on limewire pro, with the 80 dreamcast games/neo geo emulator, the *REAL DEAL* with really that much games? but compressed to a very-small file size? If so i'll download it

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

Answer:Avast IS 2016 / Panda IS 2016 / Bitdefender IS 2016

What kind of system do you have?
Panda and Avast are the lightest while Bitdefender can be heavy.

All 3 offer excellent protection (Avast requires tweaking; Bitdefender and Panda works out of the box), while Bitdefender is mainly known for its detection rate (signatures).

Try the 3 of them (trial versions, not the 6 months) and see which one you prefer.

In terms of UI, all 3 are user friendly.

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.

Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Answer:F-Secure Internet Security 2016 vs Panda Free Antivirus 2016

If a security soft ranks amongst the top performing AVs, it won't matter much if it does function correctly or causes problems on your specific system.

From lab test results F-Secure has an edge over Panda during testing the past few years in terms of detection (although higher false positives).

From users, it seems more prefer Panda - which is one of Neil Rubenking's (PCMag) favs (that don't mean much - but that is just my opinion).

I'd say, in terms of overall protection, Panda has a slight edge; it might protect your system in a few instances that F-Secure will not.

According to all sources that I could find on-line, it appears that rules are part of pst file.

However, this does not happening in my case.

I use outlook 2016 (part of MS office 2016) and have several accounts linked with this ? From my ISP (POP), Hotmail, yahoo, Gmail. I have rules only for account from my ISP.

Recently I deleted my Hotmail account, removed it from my outlook, deleted associated ost file. Then I had second thought and re-activated this hotmal account the following day. Added this to my outlook. To my surprise all rules vanished. Not a single rule remained. I did NOT have any rules setup for Hotmail account. Even column details for message folders (part of setting) got changed.

I decided to check further. Copied my pst files to another computer which had same version of outlook installed and has exactly the same setup.

Now I added some rules on my 1st computer. Checked the 2nd computer. The same rule appeared there. That means pst file does not contain rules.

So, Where are they?

Hope someone can help me. I am lost!!

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Hello.
In June 2016 our company bought Inspiron 5759. I used it at office, we have air conditioning, nothing that could cause overheating or other problems. In the end of July 17 laptop just turned off and didnt react on any actions. I brought to service center and they told it's the hub located on the same board with CPU. The only way to fix it is to replace the whole board which costs around 600 USD because there's CPU Core i7 in it. I was given another laptop Inspiron 5558 which was not used since winter of 2017 because it had problems with WiFi. I tried to connect it with LAN cable and discovered that LAN is not working, in fact there's no LAN adapter in device manager. Service center said today that's the same problem - but this time hub is not completely broken, it's just doesnt see LAN adapter and periodically shuts down WiFi. The technician told that this is a frequent problem with Inspirons and Dell knows about it but doesnt recall laptops or extend warranty on this spare part. I asked when second laptop got the wifi issues - it started at the beginning of 2017 and warranty ended in December 2016. Again just 1-2 months.

So, it looks very strange that Dell laptops break right after ending of warranty with same problem, and we can't just change the hub, we need to buy a new board which includes CPU for 600 USD.

Here's a thought. I've been searching high and low for an affordable laptop which has

Awesome Graphics card (not sure what - but something that could handle Crysis at high)
15-16" screen with 1920 x 1080 res
4gb or more ddr3 1333mhz ram
core i7-720qm or higher processor
backlit keyboard
HDMI, long battery life, etc etc

So basically everything but at under $2500. I even bought a dell studio xps 1645 with the above specs and the price was real good ($1730 with student discount) but it had lots of problems so i had to return it.

Now that the problem is solved (? maybe?).. dell dont offer that laptop in that configuration, making the laptop around $2400 just due to an increase in RAM (6gb instead of 4gb).

And since I am unsure of the quality with dell or any other brand for that matter, I was wondering if there is any laptop out there that gives alienware m15x performance for a smaller pricetag? (a discount coupon for the above would do! hehe)

If not, what about "overhauling" or "Pimp My Laptop" sorta stuff if you catch my drift... You know customizing the laptop or even building it up from scratch.

I've done some basic upgrades in the past (RAM HDD, bluetooth card etc.) but does anyone have any experience in upgrading graphics cards, screens and CPU's?

Answer:Black Friday Weekend (2016) Game Recommendations

Sorry, just saw this.

Fallout 4 is pretty fantastic. There are more than enough side quests to keep you busy if you don't feel like rushing through the story and the story itself is pretty good (so far. 320 hours in but haven't finished it yet).

GTA V has a great story based single player mode which is about equal parts driving and shooting if you go straight through the story. You can also do things in story mode like play the stock market, which I found to be fun. There's also GTA Online, the multiplayer section, which I've spent most of my time on lately. It's challenging, but has a ton of various modes (races, stunt races, PVP deathmatches etc.) that can be a lot of fun. If you're into playing with randoms, there are also things like motorcycle clubs or companies that you can form or join that have their own separate missions that can bring in tons of money and XP. You will run into modders/cheaters on GTAO occasionally, but R* has done a decent job with the banhammer lately.

I tend to mostly play GTAO with friends, but I will sometimes pop into public freeroam for things like challenges (Fly lowest to the ground for the longest distance, longest bail from a land vehicle etc.) which pit you against the others in the session for bonus cash.

I just looked it up and I'm up to 997 hours and 27 minutes in GTA V, so obviously I think it's worth paying for. hahaha

According to the release notes?

If you attempt to run Microsoft Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016, you will experience errors in the IIS host process W3WP.exe. There is no workaround at this time. You should postpone deployment of Exchange 2016 CU3 on Windows Server 2016 until a supported fix is available.

The screen read:No Emulationa disk error has occuredpress ctrl-alt- delete to reboot.This is the only hard drive I'm using and I've placed the jumper in a few different spots as recommended from the trouble shooting portion of the manual.Thank you so much for any help offered.

Answer:No Emulation

Welcome to the CH forums.I haven't come across a definite answer but I suspect that a 320Gb hard drive is not supported. Would need to know the model number\mobo ID to dig further.

Looking at the PC systems in the back of the magazine with a view to purchasing one I notice that they mainly seem come with Vista 64. I have a lot of software (Drawing, Video Editing, Photo Editing etc.) that is 32 bit. Is there an emulation facility in Vista 64 that will allow this software to run properly or should I request Vista 32? I am looking at 64 for the memory capacity when I upgrade these programmes to 64 bit versions.Thanks

Question: Mac-Tel Emulation?

((yes, this is a followup thread to "OSX for PC???"))

Simple question. I have a 2.97ghz machine with 1gb of ram. With Mac switching to Intel hardware, could I (effeciently) emulate (the X86 version of) OSX? I know this hasn't happened yet, but I was wondering.

PC's OS is either Linux or Windows XP
 

Answer:Mac-Tel Emulation?

Simple answer: No.

More advanced answer: No.

Explanation: Macintosh OSes require a boot ROM to run. Current x86 hardware has nothing that would work that way (except possibly the XBox, and that would be... weird).

Question: GFX emulation

Hello

I have the following laptop:
AMD sempron 2800+
80 giga hard disk
512 ram
dvd rw
wireless

and a stupid built in SIS m760 gx vga card with shared memory from 32-128 mbyte


Unfortunately i just cant have a decent fps in ut2004.It varies from 14-20 fps
with 1024x768 16 bit and the other settings at normal mode

i was wondering if there are any programs that use cpu resources to emulate functions that should be done from the vga card and thus improve the overall fps(since my cpu above the recommended cpu for ut2004)

any help will be really appreciate
 

Answer:GFX emulation

You can always try to play in software mode but that would probably result in even lower performance. Unless you have a very high-end laptop, they're simply not good gaming machines & the upgrade options are close to zero.

I've searched all over the internet to find an answer to this question to no avail. Just people saying 32-bit programs work on 64-bit, which is not true.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and I'm trying to play good ol' King's Quest games but unfortunately they will not run on a 64-bit OS and as far as I know there is no 32-bit in the compatibility settings.

When I try to run any King's Quest game I get the following error:

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.Click to expand...

I'm fairly sure Sierra never released any patches that make King's Quest Collection compatible in 64-bit. Anybody know a solution?

Question: LAN emulation

Hi fellas.

I need to emulate a LAN in order to play a game with friends, I need some way of making the game think we are on a LAN so we are able to join each others games. I know this can be done but need pointing in the right direction - ie a program I can use that connects computers using a VPN or something in order to emulate a LAN so the game thinks we are on LAN. I have done this before but it was a while back and need some help!
cheers gentleman!

Supposed to make a virtual network from all computers that you configure to connect to the same network. Sounds like it would make your internet LAN play work due to alot of people mentiong they could play C&C and Wc3

Question: no emulation

The error message is: Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM: No EmulationI have looked around with Google but i can't find a solution to this problem.

Answer:no emulation

That's not an error, itself.You get that message when you boot your computer from an XP (or 2000) CD.No Emulation = Windows 2000 and XP CDs don't emulate a floppy disk like many bootable disks do.They use a different method to make them bootable.If the bios halts at that point, and/or if you don't, or if you do, see "Press any key to Boot from CD" or similar and the XP (or 2000) CD files will not load after that, THAT's the error.That can be caused by.....- the laser lens on the drive is "dirty".Try using a laser lens cleaning CD in the drive, or if it's a laptop drive,eject the tray and when there's no disk on it, wipe off the obvious laser lens.- there's a problem with the CD. If the CD is scratched it may not read properly.If it's an original CD, try booting from it on another computer.If it's a copy of a Windows CD, -if it's a "slipstreamed" CD it may not have been made properly - in that case it won't boot in any computer- it may not read properly in a drive it was not made in, especially if it's not a CD-R disk. You could try booting from it on another computer, but it working in a different drive model than on your computer doesn't necessarily indicate it will work in your computer's drive.- there's a problem with the drive you're trying to boot the CD from.Try booting from a different bootable CD.-if your computer has more than one optical drive, try the Windows CD in a different drive.NOTE that some bioses will only boot bootable disks from the first drive the bios ...

Ive got a Toshiba laptop and my buddy next to me has a HP laptop. Here at work our wireless internet connection blocks games from being played online, so I brought in a cat 5 cable to link them directly together and just play some lan games, but I've ran into troubles. On both of the laptops it says "Network cable unplugged", when it obviously is not. Tried to disable and enable the connection on both laptops, no luck. Could the cat 5 be bad? Thanks for any help.

You need a crossover CAT5 cable, not a standard patch cable.

Question: Android emulation

Hello fellow WP users!
I have been a WP user from day one and can't see myself ever switching to another OS, at least for the moment :P but like many others, the app gap gets me green with envy from time to time. I also am the proud owner of a Surface Pro (first generation) and recently stumbled across a piece of software many of you might already know.
Now on my Surface I clearly have no complaints about lack of apps. I can run anything written for windows dating back quite some time and even get DOS apps running with a little bit of work. But I wanted to use Whatsapp on my PC and looked up solutions online. I was pointed to an app called BlueStacks, which emulates Android in a sort of virtual machine, but runs natively without additional software. Go figure! I can now run any Android apps right on the desktop, not that I really need or want to...I'm wondering if there are any homebrew solutions in the works for a somewhat simple Android emulator for WP8.
I think it could really help out some of us who are loyal WP fans but really want access to very specific apps. I, for one, am currently studying in France and would love to use an app called World&You, which would let me make calls on Wifi, in or outside of the country at no cost. It's actually free as part of my phone plan and very practical, but of course unavailable on WP. So does anyone know of an Android emulator that might grant us access to such types of apps in the works on WP? Clearly, such an app wouldn't pas... Read more

Answer:Windows 98 emulation on XP?????

Had the same problem - got round it by using Partition Magic to create a hidden partition on C drive and then loaded Windows 98 on to the hidden partition. Boot magic then gives you the option (at start up) of which OS you want to use. Open 98 and load your software on and away you go. Works for me.
