Conflicting info on GTX 980

Question: Conflicting info on GTX 980

Guys, I keep bumping into this info that some gtx 980 models will not spin their fans when in idle (strix for sure, the others, I just don't know). Some people are also claiming that regardless of the model, you can set a fan curve in msi afterburner to emulate this behavior.

So, first I'd like to know if my gtx 980 (g1 gaming) is one of those models and, if not, why can't I reproduce this behavior using msi afterburner? However low I set the fans, they will stay at 12%.

Here's a pic

Preferred Solution: Conflicting info on GTX 980

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.)

Is it necessary to install an OS on an external drive that is only used for file storage and access?

Does it need to be formatted to the same system as other drives that would access it?

Also, I have read that an external drive cannot boot via USB. Is this true?

If I do need to install an OS to use it as a backup, will it be a problem to put Vista 64 on it when the main internal drive has W7? I've read that file transfer will work, but programs won't.

Finally, I understand that I can format via USB, but OS installation will require direct connection to the mobo(or at least be easier). Is this true?

Thank you for your help.

Answer:Questions:Conflicting Info On External OS's

Can I simply format the drive and forgo the OS installation?

I decided to try Acronis Hard drive Monitor it reports temp problem 33c and suggests I sort it out asap.
I have run the software one after the other, three times or more the result is the same, I'm at a loss as to what to do now.
Any advice appreciated

I've had a friend ask me this question, then I tried it on my computer and a couple others and they all do the same thing. I'd like to see if any of you know what's going on.

From my friend said:

When I view the properties of My hard drive (1TB), It shows that out of 931GB of total available space it is using 271GB, yet when I go to my C: drive and select all the folders and files It only totals out to 174GB.Click to expand...

I've tried it on my computer running Windows Vista Business 64 and I get the same type of problem. Drive properties says I am using 161 Gigs, and Folders Properties (I open my C-Drive, and do a Ctrl-A to select all files and folders) shows I'm using only 106 Gigs. What is happening to the rest? Why the inconsistency?

Please note, I have "show hidden files and folders" turned on, and I have "Hide protected operating system files" turned off (Shown). My HD in my laptop is a 250G drive.

I'm baffled.

Answer:Windows Vista displaying conflicting info for HD usage

Start->Run,enter diskmgmt.msc

You see the disk management console. First question is how is the console laid out?
- Is there unallocated (not used/not assigned space)
- Do you have a large partition there with no drive letter (probably your recovery partition)
Anything else you see?

Question: Conflicting IP

I recently noticed that on Wikipedia, i had been blocked for apparently posting abusive phrases. I am the sole owner and user of my computer, which leads me to believe that a computer somewhere is using the same ip address i have. is this possible?I have tested this with IP geolocation sites, and my address definitely shows my ISP and approximate loaction correctly. I am also concerned that the otheruser may use this IP to access innapropriate content eg. racist, which if traced, the blame would return to me.What can i do?Thanks

Answer:Conflicting IP

i doubt the likelihood of what you suggest as most isp' use random IP addy's, it is most likely that your isp and not you has been blocked as they may have an abusive customer which has led to this,johnny.

Question: 32-bit conflicting

after i sign into my msn & i see ive got mail, if i click on it, it opens internet expoler 32-bit, but it struggles to open or is very slow, how do i get the 64-bit IE to open automatically instead of 32-bit when i click on my 'go to mail' i.e. how do i disable the 32-bit IE.

Answer:32-bit conflicting

Have you enabled Tabbed Browsing (Internet Options/General/Tabs/Settings)? Then I expect it should open as a new tab in the same browser. I'm using 32-bit only since I don't have a 64-bit computer, but when I follow your procedure Hotmail opens quickly. Also, I expect you need to make sure both browsers (32-bit or 64-bit) open equally fast since there is no reason 32-bit should be slower. Perhaps you could try a reset: Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset.

Hey, recently I've been having some problems with my internet, mainly revolving around IPs. I've searched the forums for similar problems, and have tried some of the solutions, but to no avail.
Basically, when I'm doing anything on my computer, the internet cuts out randomly, and also randomly comes back on. Sometimes the error just fixes itself, and a little bubble appears at the bottom of the screen in the task bar, stating that "There was a conflict in IP addresses." Other times it cuts out either until I press the repair button in the network connections window, or hard reset the router.
I have a D-Link DSL-G604T router, which is connected to my main computer, and have a wireless external network of a netbook/laptop, a wireless homephone, two Ipod Touches and a Playstation 3. I'm not sure if the Ipods or the Playstation might be affecting the IP or not, but I'm just including it in-case it might be the problem.

Event Viewer:
In checking the Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools window, I can see a few things that might have caused the problem.

Security Tab: Failure Audit
IPSec Services: IPSec Services failed to get the complete list of network interfaces on the machine. This can be a potential security hazard to the machine since some of the network interfaces may not get the protection as desired by the applied IPSec filters.

Hi, hopefully you can help me.

I have just recently switched from using a broadband modem to a wireless router for my internet.

I connect to my Xbox 360 through my LAN but since I started using my WAN both will not work together. Once the LAN turns on my internet stops working which is my problem.
The Wireless network does stay connected while the LAN is on but its just the internet connection that stops working.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I am using Windows XP
My Wireless router is a Netgear DG834GSP
The Wireless network is using DHCP and the LAN is using a static IP. I have tried changing the LAN to DHCP but it just gets stuck on "Aquiring Network Address"

Specifications on my PC are in this link.

I recently put my two HyperX 120GB SSDs in Raid0 but for some reason my boot time is about 2 minutes. I have good reason to believe that my newer SSD is conflicting with my 2TB Western Digital Cavier Black HDD. Earlier today I removed my newer (Only by a month) SSD and the computer booted up in 15 seconds. I reinstalled the SSD and it booted in about 2 minutes (and continues to do so) and this was prior to me putting them in raid0. Furthermore, when the SSD was out my 2TB drive was recognized in the bios where as now it does not. I do not understand why my 750GB HDD shows up though but I am not able to access it. I've check both Device manager and Disk management, but neither show my 2TB HDD. I've seen several threads similar to my problem but none quite the same. I'd appreciate any insight given on this matter. Thanks!

Things I have done:
1. Redo Raid0 and reinstall windows without HDDs installed.
2. Flash BIOS
3. Put HDDs in another Computer
I can't access the 750GB HDD nor can I format or change letter.

Also in the link, there are errors when you scroll down to the storage part that may be related but I am not sure.

Should I undo raid0 format both SSDs then put them in Raid0? Would that even make a difference? I am completely out of ideas on what to do because my 2TB drive is recognized in the BIOS if I install it without one SSD.

Answer:I believe one of my SSD and my 2TB HDD are conflicting.

What is on the 750 GB drive? Just data?

Did you purposely choose "dynamic" for that drive and if so why?

Do you insist on using RAID?

Question: Conflicting IPs

Basically, i'm running a wireless router for 2 pc's and the past week or so both pc's keep disconnecting for 2-3seconds then reconnecting again. Doesn't seem much of a problem but 1. it's annoying and 2. me and my brother both play games and when it disconnects it resets the game.

Strangely though it disconnects for 2-3 seconds then reconnects itself automatically.

By coincidence just as i was playing my game i hit the windows key and went to my desktop and i saw a windows message pop up in my desktop tray..

Do you think this is the reason why both of our computers are disconnecting and reconnecting? Ifso, i don't see why it would've only just started doing this because i've not installed anything recently or changed any software/hardware settings on either of the PCs.

Thanks for help, if you need any additional info i can do.

Answer:Conflicting IPs

Is your wireless encrypted, if not I would suggest encrypting it. If it is encrypted check out the DHCP lease information make sure that your computers MAC's correspond to the lease table if they don't someone else may be on your network.

A quick solution to the problem would be to set your computers for static IP's.

But I would look into the possibility of your network being compromised. If it is, change your encryption keys.

I have two net adapters: onboard Intel 100 Pro and a PCI Realtek ethernet card running on a Linksys router. The PS3 is on the Realtek and the xp PC is on the onboard Intel. The Realtek connections shows a red X through it though I am still able to connect the PS3 to the internet. I am trying to stream video (Netflix Watch Now) to the television through the PS3 but Ps3 can't find any media servers (Windows Media Player, or Tversity). I'm wondering if this has to do with the red X being on the Realtek that the PS3 is connected on. I put the card in when I got the router as I needed to plug in all the ethernet cables. My setup is this:

internet access from Road Runner into the house to the modem, modem ot the router, then the vista laptop, kitchen desktop XP, and the Ps3 using the available ports.

Are the two cards conflicting? Is this why media sharing won't work? If so, how can I connect my home network to include the PS3 through only one of the two adapters?

Hello and thanks in advance for any suggestions...

I have two computers, Win 7 on one, Win XP on the other, brand new home built machines all updated and latest drivers. Each has a Linksys wireless adapter and each hook up well with a Mac Airport wireless network and connect to the internet well. Neither wireless card has an assigned IP address but get one assigned by the Airport. The computers see each other and can file share over the wireless network without problem.

I also have a Crossover ethernet cable between the two machines plugged into the jack on the motherboards for a 1 Gb LAN. For the LAN each computer has a static IP assigned with the other computer specified as the gateway IP. File sharing works over the LAN at seemingly very high speeds without problem. The static IP addresses are in a different range that what the Airport assigns.

The problem is this: when all the adapters are turned on, neither machine will find the internet. The LAN operates fine, the Airport connections seem to be intact, but the browsers cannot access the internet. Turning off the LAN corrects the problem, and even after turning the LAN back on internet access remains for a short time before going away.

Even though no internet is possible, file transfer works on both the wireless and the LAN; when copying a file over the computers seemingly choose the wireless network first but if one of the wireless adapters is disabled the file transfer can be restarted and will go over the remainin...

Over the past week or so I've noticed a few issues coming up with my HP dv6000, and I believe that they might possibly be related. These are my issues:
1- Aero transparency will not work
2- I'm getting a "code 12" error when I look at my Nvidia display adaptor and also my standard openHCD USB host controller, which from my research means there is a resource conflict between the two issues, and that there is "not enough resources on the computer to run the hardware"
3- My hardware accelerator will not run

While I'm not sure this is the problem, I think that the display adaptor and the USB host controller are not wanting to work together, which is screwing up my aero and the hardware accelerator. If anyone has had these series of problems or may know what the issue is, I would love your help. Hours of research have so far helped very little. Thanks

Does this sound correct?Did you recently use Windows 7's Performance information and tools which is found in the control panel menus?AeroPeak can be disabled within that feature, you may want to go there and see if you can turn it back on.You may have ran an older program such as an older video game which set your video back to a lower resolution with less colors available at 16 Bit and failed to allow Windows to go back to 32 or 64 Bit color.I would first try going to the control panel and click the link to Performance information and tools and check the status there, then post back and describe what you see.Pay attention to the link on the left that says visual effects.

So I've bought a nice new computer, Win7 64bit OS... And with the motherboard instalation disks was some trial internet security suites, I chose trend micro internet security, I like(d) the software, plus my dad has a license with 1 more computer allowed on it - Serial didnt work, but thats not the issue. When Installing Trend Micro IS, it told me that MBAM was conflicting and to uninstall.. Which I did, and then promptly re-installed MBAM.. That was a few days ago now, and I was messing around, and I noticed Trend Micro IS was turned off.. So it turned it on, and it just hangs at "starting up" or whatever, in the sys tray. I think to my self, stuff this, I'll get avast av (got as far as downloading the setup, thats it), and use windows fw. Off to add/remove.... uninstall also hangs... Use Trend Micro's Diagnostic tool kit to uninstall - Success! Please restart... Restart... Hangs at the windows logo.. So I press the little restart button on the tower, and windows says windows couldnt load last time, and advised to run repair, so I run repair, suggests that I use sys restore, so I do, restart the computer, and obviously, Trend Micro IS is still there..

So after installing Win7 I had to get my printer. At first there was some compatbility issues but the troubleshoot fixed all that for me and my printer is working fine. However, my DVD-RW becomes non-functional (can't read/write).

So I did a test and uninstalled my printer to see if that was my problem and bingo, my DVD-RW is back and working again. Then I tried reinstalling my printer and after a restart my DVD-RW is gone again.

I went to troubleshoot and it suggested reinstalling the drivers which I tried but that didn't work. I went to check if I could update them but it said I had the latest drivers as well.

I'm hoping I don't need to buy a new printer since this one is still fine (although I had it for about 8 years now).


OS = Windows 7 Ultimate
Printer = HP PSC 1350 All-in-one
DVD-RW = Pioneer DVR-215 (I think, I can confirm later if need be)

Anyone help will be greatly appreciated!

Answer:HP PSC 1350 conflicting with DVD-RW

Did you get the drivers from the Manufacturers' sites? That is probably the best idea. With a printer so old, that might be the problem. Windows Update might be using drivers that it thinks are compatible, but have issues like the one you described.

So I have a new mobo, a gigabyte B85-HD3-A and have been trying to get my WD 3200 (320 gig) HDD, that had Windows installed when it was hooked into my old mobo, to run. When I set the HDD as the primary boot drive, it gets to the windows logo screen,where the four balls merge to form the logo, and crashes to a blue screen. After that happens, the mobo no longer reads the HDD and I have to disconnect it and reconnect it to get it to recognize the drive again. I've tried to use my window 7 disc to reinstall, and repair Windows on the HDD but it always crashes. Any idea what may be wrong?

Answer:Mobo and HDD conflicting

Your old Windows installation was configured for the old motherboard & will not run on the new one; Microsoft designed it that way. You will have to wipe the Windows partitions & do a clean install. If you haven't already done so, backup all your important files. And then as mentioned above, delete the the 200MB system partition & the Windows partition during the new Windows install. If you have a partition for storage, it does not have to be deleted. Create a new partition from the unallocated space, then continue with the installation.

I've been using a certain anti-virus program and a certain anti-spyware program for the last year. I'm not sure if it's ok to say what their names are, they are not free programs.
Anyway, I renewed both of them, and the anti-spyware software was installed just fine. While installing the anti-virus software, a message pops up saying that the spyware program I have installed is a 'conflicting program' and it needs to be removed so the anti-virus program can be installed. Why is this? These two programs have worked fine with each other the last year that I've had them. I have contacted their customer support which I'm still waiting a response from.

Any help is appreciated. I am running WinXP. Thank you.

I have two 512 sticks of sdr. One is Spectek and the other is not(dont know). I just had my comp redone with new case, CPU(Athlon XP 2400), XP Home, AK73 PRO (A) mb.

After about 10 minutes of gaming it will shut off and say "You may have a problem with your memory". So I tried with just one stick and it only worked with the Spectek. My computer guy says it needs to be the same brand. because the new CPUs are bitchy about that.
Does this sound right? If so Where is a good place to buy Spectek 512mb srdram?

Question: conflicting advice

i am running XP pro and my details are as follows 800 mghz processor--128k memory and 20gb hard drive.i am running more programmes since changing from '98 se, and my pc has slowed down quite a person told me i need more memory (512k) and another said that memory won't make it that much faster,but getting a bigger processor (max on my motherboard is 1800mghz) will speed things up more ----------who do i take notice of? i can only afford one or the other-so which will make the pc work the faster--------alf

Answer:conflicting advice

Both the CPU and the amount of memory will affect your computer's performance.In your case, I would probably buy more memory, if it's either one of the two. 800MHz is fine with XP Pro, but XP pro on startup (with the usual background processes and applications such as antivirus) will probably take up the whole of your 128MB memory, and that's before you open a couple of applications. Your computer is constantly using the hard disk for virtual memory. Access to the hard disk is much slower than RAM memory.You can make do with 256MB, but would be nice with 512MB.Upgrading to a faster cpu, but with only 128MB, running xp, will not give you much help, because your computer will still be accessing the hard disk to use as virtual memory.

Start by confirming in both pcs that you are using "auto assigned' in your tcp/ip properties and that you have no static ip address in the Advanced tab. Next go into the belkin router and confirm your dhcp scope is larger than one ip address.

Hello Again Folks:

This one has me really confused.
I have been running AVG purchased anti-virus application. The application tells me that my system is protected, however my Control Panel System and Security monitor informs me that my anti-virus, firewall, and anti-spyware functions are shut off. I uninstalled AVG and installed my Kaspersky AV program and when I check the security monitor in the Control Panel I get the same message. Since both AV programs are showing the same conflicting messages, I assume the problem is in Windows 7.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Conflicting messages

The problem is most likely the result of one or more antivirus product not uninstalling cleanly (e.g. leaving stuff behind).

This problem is so bad, that nearly every antivirus company has a tool just for cleaning up after their normal uninstall method. If your computer has ever had an antivirus product installed from another company, then you might want to run the cleanup tool from that company.
AVG | Download tools and utilities
Removal tool for Kaspersky Lab products (kavremover)

Just as a test, uninstall Kaspersky (then run their cleanup tool) and install MSE. Let us know if Microsoft's AV product is able to convince Microsoft's OS product that it is there.

I am currently using my laptops speaker. I know this thread nay sound like a load of rubbish but could you tell me what you think! thanks for all help guys.

Hi, I don't think speakers should affect your connection, but I may be wrong of course, if so, someone will soon come on and say so. Next time it disconnects - disconnect Power from Router, wait 10 seconds then reconnect Power, this should reset the router to work properly again.Cheers

Your mobo is probably specially made for HP... notice the LA at the end.

To get your 2GB to work, you'll most likely have to upgrade your mobo. SInce it is a socket A, it may be hard to find, but if you can find a Asus A7N8V (not LA), you might be able to swap it out with your current mobo and not lose your stuff on your hard drive.

Hi, new to the forum here and looking for advice regarding running multiple LANs.

I am running hydrographic survey equipment off both LAN's.

A high spec system runs on the motherboard's ethernet port (which needs to be run off there due to the high data frequency). This is the only hard wired ethernet port on the laptop.
The high spec system is set to the following:

A lower spec system would ideally run off an ethernet to USB or ethernet to expresscard adapter.
The low spec system is set to the following:

No matter which way round I configure it (i.e. which adapter used or in which order they are switched on) the data for the low spec system stops coming through as soon as the high spec system is connected...although both LANs are still visible in the network and sharing centre.

Yes, I have tried the method in which you change device installation settings, but they keep installing.

You can update the whole Catalyst -- it will update your drivers as well.

Now, if you are sure you don't want Windows to install drivers, just go offline until you install what you want; or run Windows in Safe Mode.

Help ME please

Answer:My IRQs are conflicting and I cant fix it!!!

Hello ThedumbTish

Have you gone into Device Manager and confirmed and IRQ conflict?

Right click on My Computer, chose the Hardware tab, and click Device Manager.
In there you should be able to see the modem, click the + beside the modem. Your Motorola modem should be listed. Then highlight it, right click and click properties. Go to the Resources tab and see if it lists any conflicts. Do the same for you wireless adapter card. It should be using IRQ 11.
IRQ 10 & 11 should be available to assign a device.
Normally modems are configured to use COM3's resources (IRQ 4 ) or COM4's resources (IRQ 3).

Changing system resources such as IRQ channels can result in your computer not functioning correctly, always make a note of the settings before you change anything so you can restore them back if required.

You could try manually setting them in your motherboard's BIOS.

Hi. I'm having a strange problem with a website that I've used forever (I'll just call it http://site/, that is obviously not the real address). I'm going to it, and it is simply coming up completely blank, instantly. Just a nice, blank, creamy page. No error codes. The Firefox tab and URL bar both show the proper URL. A related sister site does the exact same thing. However, a sub-page of that same URL is functioning properly ( http://site/blog/ ).This is not a pay site, a file trading site, a game site, a forum, any social networking, etc... just a site. I do not need to go to it often, and this is the first time in perhaps six weeks that I've gone here. All other websites that I have ever used, and ones that I only used right now as testing, work exactly as they should, through Windows 7, Firefox and MSE.I'm curious as to whether or not the site is completely gone but somehow left blank, if it has crashed, or something else that sites do that I'm not aware of. The strangeness is in the lack of error messages. I find it odd that they're just "not there," but assume that a working site could have decided to be blank if it wanted to.Is there a way to determine the status, short of contacting the site's owner (an email address which unfortunately I do not have)? says the the URL is functional.. my computer begs to differ.

No. If a router is involved, its not P2P. And yes, if its set to P2P then it will try to genereate its own DHCP packets, so turn it off.

Well SP2 has it's good's and bad's. It's a great patch, and a nessicity.

However, if your computer had spyware, virus, or an old installation of windows, it had a tendency to cause problems with SP2. This is why I recomend reinstalling windows when installing SP2.

Now how are you connecting to sympatico, thru their software or thru the built in windows software?

And, since you had limited or no connectivity, I am guessing you are dirrectly connecting to the modem, and not connecting thru a router.

I know, that I have never had issues with SP2 and Sympatico before.

I just purchased Malwarebytes pro version because it had been such a good tool finding many things that Norton Security ignored or missed. I had been running the free version alongside of Norton for 6 months without an issue.

After about two weeks of running the pro version suddenly today Norton tells me that there is a conflict and provides a button for me to un-install Malwarebytes.

I have seen one older closed post about this same issue only with XP in this forum where someone said that Malwarebytes had asked Norton to remove that warning.

For now I have configured Norton to ignore Malwarebytes Folder in it's scan. I can't believe that this warning is valid.

Any feedback about this warning from Norton about conflicting with Malwarebytes would be appreciated!

I'm running an Acer laptop with Vista.


Answer:NSS conflicting with Malwarebytes Vista

If you purchased the PRO version, thats why. Norton has a resident scanner (constantly on) and so does Malwarebytes PRO. You cant have 2 ACTIVE scanners w/o conflicts. At least not that I've heard of. Especially with Norton, Norton has problems with pretty much everything IMO. Seeing as you said above that Norton has missed things in the past, possibly consider getting rid of it; and downloading AVG or Microsoft security essentials. They are both FREE OF CHARGE.

I have a problem with my adsl modem which causes the USB ports to loose power at apparently random intervals. The symptoms would be that the Broadband ADSL will usually work fine for a short time and then the modem would just switch itself off. After a reboot of the computer it will be OK again for a few minutes.I have been told that there is a problem with the KT7 chipset in that it conflicts with the USB port, does anyone know how i can overcome this?

hi there, guys, just wondering if i could get an opinion on this...

i connect to the internet on my desktop through a tp-link TL-WR702N nano router, using it to receive wireless from my router, and obviously it doesn't go as smoothly as if i had a proper wireless card... basically, in ipconfig /all it tells me dhcp is not enabled, but when i go via network settings and check on my ipv4 settings in the properties dialog i have ip/dns set to automatic and dhcp shows as being 'on' in that. anyone have any clue what's happened?

As many of you know you can change your routers channel that it broadcasts on. However in my neighbourhood they don't as the same channel is being broadcasted. Furthermore the SSID name suggests they use the same ISP as me.

My question is does it affect my internet connection all?

I was thinking of renaming my wireless to something along the lines of "neighbours update your router settings, wireless channel"

Okay doubt that would fit

What do you think?

Answer:Conflicting Wi-Fi Router Channels

I wouldn't worry about your neighbors. If your channel is the same as there's change it. The save channels are 1,6, and 11.

If you have the same said that can be a problem. If it looks the same and it confuses you then change it so you know what one is yours.

Okay, I'm having abit of a problem ever since I installed the Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 128MB PCI card.

Games and CDs for games run absolutely fine. But as soon as I run a DVD something goes awry.

When a DVD first starts, everything is good until it reaches the MENU screen where you pick to play the DVD, set up sound, etc, After it hits that screen, it goes FUZZY/BLURRY with lil white lines and dashes across the screen, with the playback of the DVD still running behind these blur marks. The blur marks STAY there throughout.. even when I try to watch the movie.

I have all the latest drivers installed for the Nvidia card. Like I said, games run fine... movies don't.

I never had this problem when I had my Geforce 440 MX PCI in.

Im not quite sure how to word this so bear with me.

For those familiar with Soulseek, to get it to work properly you have to forward your ports. I had nothing but problems with slsk for monthes till i finally did this. And now it works fine, but it will not run when i have aim running. One if not both of the programs shut down and ill have to go back to my router settings and go to "port forwarding"...then go to "apply" on the custom service that i have already added ( soulseeks ports ) to basically refresh my settings. After i do this it works fine again, but i still cannot run both programs at once. Any ideas????

I have looked through out the directions and such, but its really confusing.

I have 3 computers and two of them have the same conflicting public IP address which is causing problems. I tried to ipconfig/release ipconfig/renew and ipconfig /flushdns but nothing. It also says "No operation can be performed on a Local Area Connection* 11 while it has its media disconnected."
I tried resetting router/modem, made sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" are all enabled. DHCP is enabled.
If I clone my MAC address the identical IP of the two computers changes but they'll still share the same IP. The third doesn't change.
I just updated my firmware.
Can anyone help? Thanks.

Answer:Please Help. Two computers with the conflicting IP Addresses

A public IP address, which is what the world sees, should be the same for all the computers, when going through a router, or router/modem (combo).  It is the router, or router/modem (combo) that acts as a "traffic cop", and directs incoming to the appropriate computer on your network.  However "private" IP address, what your router, or router/modem (combo) gives out to the computer, etc connected to it, that is a different story.  Each device off your router must have a different IP address.
Do this:
1.  Check the configuration of ALL the computers, and see if they have the same ip address.  This is presuming that they may have static IP addresses assigned.  This is done in the networking area.  Make sure that they all are set to DHCP.
2.  Power down ALL PCs.
3.  Do a hard reset on the router, or router/modem (combo).  So this my pressing a small recessed button somewhere on the router/modem.  Usually you have to use a paperclip or something similiar, and hold the button down until the light flicker, maybe 10-15 seconds.
4.  Power on one of the computers.  Let it cycle up, and check your connection.
5.  Power on another one of the computers.  Let it cycle up, and check your connection.
6.  Power on the last computer.  Let it cycle up, and check your connection.
If none of this works, then contact your ISP.  It is possible that the firmware update hosed things.  To my knowledge, once... Read more

Hello. My computer has several conflicting IRQs, which I think may be causing some instability in the system. I would like to reassign the conflicting IRQs to unused slots. However, when I open a device's properties from Device Manager and go to its Resources tab, the option to "Use automatic settings" is disabled/grayed out. Is there another way that I can change the IRQ assignments? I am using Windows XP-64 Pro. Thanks.

I just switched ISPs, and am now using CenturyLink (DSL). When I hook up via ethernet jack to the modem, I have no trouble accessing the internet. However, when I try to go through my D-Link DIR-615 wireless router, I am unable to connect to the internet.

Some preliminary research makes me believe that the problem may lie in the LAN IP addresses of the two devices: the DSL modem and router are both on

One by one, I tried changing the devices to other IPs (specifically,, and then When I did that, the problem was not resolved, and I couldn't log into the devices to change them back, so I had to do a factory reset on both.

Obviously I'm not really an expert at this, so I would appreciate some feedback. I guess my specific questions are:

1) Am I right in assuming that the shared IP could be causing my problem?
2) If so, does it sound like I'm doing something wrong in how I am changing the devices' LAN IPs?

I have mistakenly installed two anti virus protection packages - AVG and Norton on my laptop! Do i need to uninstall one of them? I have paid for both, which one should i keep?? Does it matter? I'm inclined to uninstall Norton and have tried but it does not seem to want to go and has frozen my Laptop so much so that i have had to take the battery out and re-start it to do anything! I have not downloaded TSG SysInfo as i'm amazed my computer's letting me do this and don't want to push it!

Answer:two conflicting anti virus

Personally, I would not install and use either one.

You definitely need to get rid of one of them because multiple antivirus programs will fight each other and bog down a computer.

You didn't advise if your laptop is using Windows XP or Vista or 7, 32-bit or 64-bit.

Depending on which one you decide to get rid of, you should run its removal tool afterwards to get rid of its leftover file and registry debris.

I get the same ~50% usage when viewing computer management/performance. adding a counter for "idle" gives me the matching ~50% idle now, but how do I find what is using all that processor time?...taskman still doesn't show it.

My modem has been randomly cutting out (but still displaying as connected and I cannot connect it and the status window disappears before it even comes up). After this happens certain sounds do not play. Some do, some don't. (For example, starting up Neverwinter Nights 2, the launcher sound does not play. The sound in game is fine.) Research on the internet has pointed me to possibly an IRQ conflict. I looked at my sound card and my modem and they are indeed on the same IRQ (18). None of the sites I have looked at give specific enough instructions or are extremely complicated. I was hoping someone here could give me better help with the problem. Or if maybe something else is the actual problem (as many sites say that multiple devices ont he same IRQ shoudln't be a problem on WinXP.)

Hi there,

I have a problem with the game LOTR Battle for Middle Earth II (the graphics are very bad, even on the lowest settings, and a lot of the trees, buildings, backgrounds etc are purple), and the reason why I'm posting in this forum is that I think it is related to my video card(s).

This is the situation:

- Dell Dimension 2400
- WinXP SP2
- 768 MB RAM
- Intel Celeron CPU 2.60 GHz
- The onboard graphics card is an Intel (not sure how to find what the model name is)
- The added-on graphics card is a PCI Nvidia Geforce FX 5200

My boyfriend reformatted the computer a few days ago and when finished he discovered that LOTR was no longer working - whereas before the reformat it had worked fine. I had a look around the computer to see if I could find what was wrong. The first thing I noticed was that no Nvidia driver was installed, and the second thing I noticed was that the following driver WAS installed:

- Intel(R) Extreme Graphics Driver

Under Display adapters in Device Manager I found this entry:

- Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller

Now, I thought I recalled from somewhere (and various sites have confirmed it) that before installing a non-onboard video card, you must uninstall (or is it disable?) the onboard card. However, when I tried to do this, i.e. uninstall 'Intel(R) Extreme Graphics Driver' from Add/Remove Programs, the Found New Hardware function kept popping up after every reboot and wouldn't go away until I'd reinstal...

I have searched the Internet for solutions to this problem and have found no joy. So I'm coming here for possible help.

We have an HP 8550 Color LaserJet printer connected and shared from a Windows XP. All the rest of our computers have Windows 7. We are able to install the HP 8550 printer on the Win7 computers, but if we want to change printer settings from Word or Publisher or something like that, we get several error messages stating that there are one or more conflicting settings. It complains about various output bins not being installed. If you click OK to all of the errors, eventually you get to the printer settings dialog, which does not include any settings having to do with the output bin. If I right-click on the printer under "Printers and Devices," most of the options having to do with configuration are grayed out so I cannot change them.

As far as I can tell, the settings on the WinXP computer are correct, but it looks like the Win7 computers are not seeing them.

The most popular solution I saw on the Internet was to install the HP Universal print driver. I have tried this, but was unable to find a way to install it so that it worked. I could install it, but not print. If anyone has more information on that, I could try again, but I am not optimistic.

If we have to live with this, so be it, but if there's some way to fix this, I'm all ears.

I recently tried installing a PCI tv tuner card into my computer and ran into some problems. When I tried running the software I recieved a message warning me that the card was conflicting with another device sharing the same interupt. I continued and my computer locked up. When I checked the device manager I noticed that there weren't any free interupts, most of them are even used by multiple devices. I tried setting the card to another interupt but I wasn't allowed to modify the settings.
