practice is the only way for great solos
False, watch this video ad you will understand:
(I agree with the above video because I've come closer to 360 flips than kickflips )
Ok I have an ISO image file. Inside this are the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS ( This is a DVD concert btw)
But this is 6GB so I can't burn it to a DVD, so what can I do to convert it to a viewable file such as an .avi?
One day, when I have some random computer lying around that I'm not using, I'm going to write a program that uses as many resources as possible, and functions in an endless loop, run it, and see how long it lasts.
Should be fun times.
I'm currently installing all kinds of **** to get everything back to how it was, I've got my program files folders (there's two cuz it's 64bit) and all my documents and those personal folders switched over to the second partition.
I've already had to control alt delete to kill a couple processes Tried to install stuff too fast, and it can't keep up (only because the stupid UAC is asking for permission to do everything...)
Is there anything else you can think of as far as windows defaults that I'd need to switch over to my second partition? The only things that are the one the first one from program files now are things that windows installs (i.e. WMP) and program files from drivers and such.
God damn this laptops been running for over 24 hours straight now... I've got it propped up on coasters so it has room to breath underneath, and I've got a fan blowing on it to move hot air away
Not that it can't handle a little heat (this thing's a monster of heat when I'm running certain games), I just don't want it building up for so damn long..
Hey guys I just got a new laptop so i can stop using the college computer lab pc's... any recommendations for antivirus/firewall/defrag stuff? its been a while since ive had a computer so is avg and comodo pretty out of date?
also is there any way to run linux over windows? not replacing it but like well i dont really know how to descibe what i mean
Did you mean to defrag partition one AFTER I've done the fresh install of Vista to it (the original install hopefully still being on what's now the second partition, though it'll be formatted anyways)?
Wait, what? the OS partition isn't going to be the backup, it'll be the main, then I'll back it up to another partition.
P1 : OS
P2 :Everything else
P3 : OS backup image
So I'd have to boot up from Gparted and use that to copy from the backup over the OS partition to restore it right?
Now I want to make sure I know as much detail as I can about what I can/will do so that stuff doesn't **** up.
I use Diskeeper Pro Premier 2009 on its 'auto-defragmentation' setting, and I've noticed very large changes in HDD space ever since. One minute I'll have 145GB of free space, then 50GB 10 minutes later. Is this normal, and what is the reason for the huge difference?
I don't have an official Vista disc though. I'm currently waiting for a torrent to download (I got one that wasn't ripped or anything, just stock) which I'll burn to a DVD, then I'll be installing and using freedom_stain's trick to validate with the product key on the sticker on my laptop.
I'm planning on having one partition that will have nothing but the OS on it. Would it also be a good idea to put the page file on this partition with the OS, then use the other partition (which would be everything else less the backup image) for everything else, leaving the OS and pagefile in good condition to avoid fragmentation or any crap like that?
Sounds good, this backup image would be used only in case the OS gets ****ed up right? It would basically act as an alternative to reformatting/reinstalling windows (since the OS partition would have nothing but that on it)?
You mean defrag everything on the other partition, or the OS partition? Also, do you mean resize the OS partition to 2GBS larger than it's using? If I do put the pagefile on the OS partition, should I give it 5GBS more than it's using, so it has room for the pagefile?
Also, for the backup partition, if I flag it as hidden, that means it won't show up in windows right? Would that just be an aesthetic thing, or would that keep it safe from infections and **** too (not that I'm planning on getting any)? If it doesn't show up, how would I go about restoring it, would that be through Gparted as well? And in the event that the main OS partition ****s up, would I be able to boot from the backup partition directly, say if I didn't have time to restore the OS partition with it?
By position do you mean partition 0, part. 1 etc.? Would drive letters matter for that(don't think they do..)?
As for the MBR thing, I read about that, and I was going to download that repair image before I decided to just download a full copy of Vista to install, and I'm not using XP, I would dual-boot, but my computer habits make it not really useful. Too many things that I would do with Vista that would potentially follow things that wouldn't be too much better in XP (or linux for that matter), and rebooting all the time would be a pain.
Alright, I just wanted to know if I could tell the restore program to restore on a different partition (like the one I would be creating) or if it just resets everything, including partitions, to the way it was from the factory.
No worries, windows is taking it's sweet ass time downloading, it's been going 18 hours straight now, and only reached 85%... 'nother couple hours to go, so I probably won't actually start doing anything on the laptop till tonight.
then I'll probably make one partition of about 30GB for the new windows install, format that, install Vista to it, move over backup data and stuff, then format the other partition (which will just be the rest of the space). Will I be able to install a copy of windows to one partition, and activate it with the same product key as the windows install on another partition?
Also, I was considering the option of getting some program that would allow me to clone my system to a backup partition for easy recovery if anything should **** up.
So would this be a good option? I had a program called Acronis suggested for that, though I think it may need to be torrented, which I'd rather just get freeware, since I've found some that seems to do similar things.
1) Pull out the power plug
2) Put it on Ebay
3) Buy a mac
acer, for what you're talking about I think it's going to have to happen server side with your provider rather than with your mail client.
If you cant get updates to windows or go to microsoft.com You have the bug
I dont think so. The thing about viruses now is that they attach to critical windows files so an AV program cant clear them without messing without fuxing up your computer OS.
as for regular reformats, it may be a little much for regular users but I do a lot of production work and need a computer that works 100% every day. For a home machine you would not need to do this. I have a dell for every day browsing that I have had for 3 years and it's never been reformatted.
If you have Malware and/or viruses the best way to clear them off and know they are 100% gone is to reformat the drive(s).
Sure it's a pain but it's being safe and actually speeds up your computer if you have not done it in a while. I reformat every 6 months to keep running fast.
My problem isn't with wireless though. I've never had problems with wi-fi, it's only with the ethernet connection.
As for the batch file, not sure if you'd seen it, but I ran it in a command prompt so that it wouldn't close, and received the message "( was unexpected at this time"
I actually don't have much experience with batch files.. I just know what they are and how to make them, as for DOS code I don't know much. I'm not a particularly experience programmer.
My best guess is that either for some reason it's taking the semi-colon and putting it in the code, or maybe semi-colons are treated a little differently as input in DOS than other things, possibly making weird things happen.
I know with C, if you put in a character when it's expecting int input everything ****s up quite a bit (I had a program for a class that caused an endless loop of asking for input if I did that... needless to say I went ahead and made a couple functions to take any input and check to see if it was an integer or not to avoid the problem, totally unnecessary, but fun )
@echo off :main cls echo Type 'p' or '1' to print a message echo. set /p ch= if /I %ch%==p ( cls echo Hello echo. pause goto main ) if %ch%==1 ( cls echo Hello again echo. pause goto main ) else ( cls echo Not a valid parameter echo. pause goto main )
Why do processes disappear from the Vista process manager 2-3 seconds after pressing the 'show tasks from other users' button?
i formatted my hard drive yesterday backing up all my important data on my ipod in disk use
everything will drag fine from it onto my new hardrive except some of my music
when i try to drag and drop from the ipod it says: Cannot copy <filename>: The parameter is incorrect
Just a question with this, I use Avast!, and I know it's got an on-access scanner which seems at least decent at picking up viruses before they can be added (at least with downloading things that have viruses attached to them, it pops up a warning as soon as the dl starts asking you to abort the connection).
Do you know if Avast! (or other AVs with the same type of thing) apply that functionality to this type of virus? Would it detect a virus trying to install itself via autorun?
REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf] @="@SYSoesNotExist"
Mkay, this conficker thing. How do I know if I have it? I ran a virus scan and it said everything's fine.
Every type of mp3 player except iPod is capable of doing that though.
Just buy an external HD, they are like $150 for 300GB.
Hey guys, so I'm trying to finally make a backup of my files (currently using Vista). I went to the backup program, tried to make a backup, but the only place it would let me save my files was HP_RECOVERY ( D: ) which only has 16.4MB left on it. So, uhhh...I really don't know what to do. Someone help?
Why the hell does the drive letter matter?
Anyhoo, if it really does matter, assuming you're using Daemon Tools lite, open the Mount n Drive Manager, right click a device (virtual drive), click properties, from there you can set whatever drive letter you like.
Although I have a sneaking suspicion this isn't your real problem.
it didn't find anything :/
Okay, so i moved a couple weeks ago and recently just put back together, my computer.
i've connected everything as it was before i moved and everything worked properly.
but for some reason, my sound wont work now.
My speakers are plugged, both to power and my sound card.
I've uninstalled and re-installed my sound card drivers.
and nothing will work.
I've made sure that the sound isn't muted, and is turned all the way up. nothing nothing nothing.
this is a screenshot of my device manager.
what i circled, is the problem and i don't know how to fix it.
any one know how i can fix this, i really need my sound.
Slax didn't work, I don't know why but it simply didn't load the disc at all
I'll try just GParted later, I'll have to sacrifice the stuff that I had on my harddrive *sighs*
That's assuming that GParted works mind...
I think I might have burned it as Data, and I used Nero. So all I would need to do would be to burn it as an image?
Would Daemon tools or PowerISO be able to do that?
I've used .iso before, but only mounting. Never burning.
I recently downloaded a Beta version of Windows 7 Build. (7057)
I ran it using VMware and it seems pretty interesting. The only problem is that I can't experience the full function of it, since it is sluggish while I am running Vista in the background.
I wanted to format my computer to my copy of Windows 7, so I burned the .iso image to a dvd and tried to boot. It didn't work.
How do I make it so that I can run an iso on startup and format my harddrive to the files on the disc?
