Win 7 Hangs Up On Expanding - Need To Test RAM

Q: Win 7 Hangs Up On Expanding - Need To Test RAM

Have downloaded Win 7 Pro (3 files: win7-P-Retail-en-us-x64.exe, setup1.box, & setup2.box). Tried expanding from a USB HDD, a logical drive D:, and a DVD. Expand always hangs up after 871 files (202 MB). Numerous posts suggest checking RAM with memtest86.

Downloaded memtest86+4.20.iso.zip and extracted to a CD. Extracted info is a Readme.txt file and a BOOT folder containing files BOOT.CAT and MEMTEST.IMG. The Readme file just says memtest86+ is in the disc boot sector. Tried the CD in an ASUS notebook running Vista (on which my goal is to replace Vista with Win 7) and a Dell desktop running XP. Newbie question: Why won?t the PCs boot from this CD?

A: Win 7 Hangs Up On Expanding - Need To Test RAM

Where are you getting Win7? You should have the option to download an ISO file that's easily burned to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed for total accuracy. Then boot it to Clean Install Windows 7.

Can you download an ISO? What is the version you're buying?

Ok I have noticed alot of people have had problems with this myself included, and the answer is almost too simple.

The problem I was having was once I got to the expanding files step it would get to 89% within a few minutes. Then it would hang for hours stuck at 89%. I tried restarting the installation 4 times. The first time it only got to 9% and stalled.

So on my fourth attempt after watching it hang for a good 2 hours I ejected the installation disk in the middle of installation and popped in another another Windows 7 RC installation disk that I forgot I had just to see what would happen. What happened is it immediately finished expanding from 89% and the installation was complete in about 20 minutes.

I should note that the first installation disk I was trying was a Memorex that had just been pulled from a jewel case prior to burning. The second disk I used was a Verbatim that had been burned some time ago and was actually pretty scratched up.

Both of the disks where burned using the same .iso downloaded from MSDN using the same burner and ImgBurn as the burning software.

Hope this helps some people.

Hi all,

after you guys solved all my problems i had with my old pc, i decided to take ur advice and bought a new one.

When i tried to install windows 7, the installation basically stops when it is 'Expanding Files' at 0%. Now i've tried to search this site for some answers, but the only thing i got was to reburn the dvd. Ofcourse i could try this, but the dvd never gave me any problems during previous installations on the old machine. im wondering what is going wrong and how to fix it

specs;
AMD Phenom x4 940, 2.5 gb ram and what not (its second hand )

thanks for ur time and help

A:W7 installation hangs at Expanding Files 0%

Hopefully, you are doing a clean installation. Assuming that you are, make sure everything is disconnect from the computer except the monitor, mouse and keyboard. Uninstall A/V and the firewall. Make sure that if you are installing a 64 bit, you have the required specifications and space. Actually make sure you have enough space for 32, also.

A:Installation Extremely Slow - Hangs during Expanding Windows Files

I was having the same issue as the original above... "Windows 7 64-bit would hang at 0% when expanding Windows files"

I originally was getting the 0xc00000e9 error when Windows 7 64-bit was trying to load the installer, which lead me down the path of burning at a lower speed.  That worked!

After reading all of the other user's helpful tips, my issue was resolved by simply ejecting the DVD while it was stuck at 0%.  It prompted to retry the disc, so I popped it back in and it screamed through the install.  I couldn't believe it was that simple, but nothing to do with removing RAM or USB devices.  Hope this helps someone else! :)

I have no idea what is going on with my system.
I try to install a program and get an error message saying that it is unable to write to C:\Users\[MYNAME]\AppData\Local\Temp
So I open Windows Explorer and check the attributes for that address and all is OK but every time I click on the Application Data folder it seems to replicate itself over and over.
One error says that there is not enough space when I have over 65Gb free on that drive.
Any ideas?

A:Like the universe, my AppData Folder keeps expanding & expanding

The Application Data folder under AppData is a Junction point, which is just a pointer to AppData. So when you click on Application Data you are actually expanding AppData, so you are in a never ending circle.

Confusing for sure. From what I understand, this was done to support compatibility with older software that expects an Application Data folder to be available.

Here are two very good articles on Junctions as used in Vista and Windows 7.

For the last two hours the update has been hanging at expanding files (18%)

A:Windows 7 update expanding windows files hangs at 18%

Hello dylan151 to TSF,

Looking at those two screenshots, you are doing a new installation of the Windows? 7 Operating System, correct?

If so, and after the length of time you have waited, it looks as though the installation is corrupt.
With a new installation, you must format thew Hard Drive Partition before you start the installation.
I would recommend that you abort this current installation, and start again, after you format the drive.
Having said that, if you are Upgrading to Windows? 7, what Operating System is already installed on the computer?
Please answer these queries.

Kind Regards,

Hi,
I'm struggling with a problem. have a home built PC using an ASrock 775Dual VSTA mobo. Been working fine, installed XP which is upgraded to SP3. I installed the latest VIA and BIOS patches from the ASrock site and am up to date. I have 3 IDE drives and a DVD combo drive. It's been working fine for 3 years My son has filled up the disks so thought I'd add a 4th SATA disk ?

Fitted a maxtor TM3250310AS 250Gb drive using one of the 2 free sata sockets.

in the BIOS I set this to be no RAID.

BIOS can see all the disks fine, including the SATA disk.

However if I run the latest seatools for DOS (from the UBCD) is the latest version, it passes the short test but hangs the long test. the Long test sits at 0% complete forever and the LBA counter goes through 3-4 iterations then hangs. I'm not clear if this is expected, I'd guess not

under XP, the formatting of the drive failed.

I returned the disk and got a replacement. Same thing happened, so replaced again, same thing. So I doub't it's the disk.

The last disk was formatted in the shop, and XP can see the disk, but if I do anything with it, I get VIA error messages in the system event log and long pauses where the PC is unresponsive.

i read that you have to reduce the SATA to SATA1 with jumpers for the VIA VT8237 chipset, which the mobo uses. tried that , no difference.


I have googled this extensively and have not found a problem like this. Either nothing works (drive... Read more

Well, neither the Maxtor nor the ASrock are known for reliability or long life... but maybe you have a defect on your WXP install disk...

On a Tecra 530CDT, ghosted an image from the original IBM to a Toshiba 6gb hard drive using Ghost version 5.1c. New hard drive stops responding after the memory test. Re-ghosting using the -fatlimit switch without success - same problem. The old drive was a Win95/WinNT dual boot. Tried updating the bios on the old drive and re-ghosting again without success. Any ideas on what I can try next would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have you tried starting the computer with a boot disk? If not, try it. Does the hard drive and it's contents show up when you do. Did you fdisk/format the new drive before ghosting it? Do you get any error messages such as no OS found?

Just recently I did an RMA with kingston and they sent me 2 brand new sticks of RAM which I installed. I just now got around to testing again but the test still fails within minutes - I am stumped.

Hi,

I recently ran a scheduled diagnostic test of my PC with the manufacturer's diagnostic software. I received two error messages and the advice to promptly replace my hard drive. The first message was Failed (Error code: WHD20-1VR) and the second was Failed (Error code: WHD16-T57). The apply to Targeted Read test and Smart Short Self Test respectively.

So I ran Chkdsk for the C: drive and received no error messages.

Which is correct and what should I do about it? The error message won't go away on the software.

Thanks for helping.

 

A:Question: Failed Targeted Read Test and SMART Short Self Test

CHKDSK is a very basic check that mostly checks file system and can be set to scan for bad sectors. The manufacturer's diagnostics actually check the physical drive to make sure its operating within the designed parameters and is more thorough.

You should replace the drive.

Hey I have an old Inspiron B130. Seems the battery is bad, or maybe it's just not charging, or maybe it's just not working in some other way? My question is how can I test?
I don't want to just rush out and buy a new battery without knowing if the laptop battery subsystem is working. The laptop came from a person who "claims" that the battery is actually a new one. I can't verify, so I want to see if I can test the laptop itself.
I wonder if there are wiring diagrams or something where I can just test a few of the pins. Or I wonder if the pins are testable at all without a battery plugged in?

How can I make sure the battery subsystem works before I buy a new battery?
 

A:Test battery and test output from laptop?

If you can't find any diagrams, just get a multitester, and with power off and pc unplugged, take out the battery and find pos / neg terminals on the computer against the chassis (unless they are labelled on the battery by chance?). Once you know which terminal is which, put the battery in the computer, let it charge (does the charge light come on? I should have asked that before). for a couple hours, unplug it and check the power. You may not see the full 11 volts (at least that's what I think the battery is on that model), but if it's charging, you should always have at least some residual power...

Ok, where to start. First, I've had this PC for about 4 years without any problems. I have my computer set to go to a blank screensaver after 1 min of not being used, and power off the monitor after 2 minutes of not being used.

The other week, the image on my entire computer screen would shake, and sometimes you could smell something burning. Sometimes, when the screen shaked so bad the monitor would just go blank for a few seconds, then back to what I was doing. (BTW, it has nothing to do with whatever I'm doing on the computer, the shaking screen happens regardless)

I thought it was just a problem with the monitor, until today when I actually shut my PC off after recieving Windows updates last night. When I went to turn it back on, audio came out of my speakers saying "system failed CPU test" I get all the lights on my PC tower on, the three lights on my keyboard are lit up, but my monitor's light is on stanby orange. There is no image on my screen whatsoever. When I push the power button on my monitor, it turns green for a few seconds, then shuts off, never displaying any image. My mouse has the red light coming from the bottom. When I hit the power button on my PC tower, nothing happens,

So I turn off the power strip, and tuen it back on, then hit the power on my tower, this time I get a "system failed VDA (or VGA) test" sound from my speakers. Everything else is like i said in the previous paragraph.

There's not a lot of difference between the vendors, except for features, so I personally would not pay for any Android antivirus apps. A very basic app can provide decent protection against unwanted apps. I have recently installed Bitdefender Free on my smartphone, it scans when I download apps from Play Store, all without any bloatware or nag screens, as I have previously experienced in other free apps.

Again, antivirus for Android is optional.

Hi Guys,

Just recently got a Powercolor HD 5850 gpu , and have ran a test on the latest Passmark performance test benchmarking software.

It seems about right on the 3d score with around 2200

But the 2d score is very low at around 320

Is this normal?

Just want to make sure everything is running right with it.

A friend has an Nvidia gtx 275 and its scores like over 900 on the 2d section!

I thought the 2 cards would be pretty much the same if not the HD 5850 being slightly better.

Proberly just me being fussy , but like I say I want to make sure all is right with it , otherwise its going back lol.

Cheers

I don't think I like this benchmark. I recently installed the June DirectX redist, so I'm up to date. This thing wanted to, and did install it's own "updated" DirectX files, which I found odd. After I ran the benchmark, I played a little Bad Company 2... had my very first crash to desktop... ever.

Coincidence? Perhaps, but I uninstalled this pos and re-ran the June redist anyway.

Ok, where to start. First, I've had this PC for about 4 years without any problems. I have my computer set to go to a blank screensaver after 1 min of not being used, and power off the monitor after 2 minutes of not being used.

The other week, the image on my entire computer screen would shake, and sometimes you could smell something burning. Sometimes, when the screen shaked so bad the monitor would just go blank for a few seconds, then back to what I was doing. (BTW, it has nothing to do with whatever I'm doing on the computer, the shaking screen happens regardless)

I thought it was just a problem with the monitor, until today when I actually shut my PC off after recieving Windows updates last night. When I went to turn it back on, audio came out of my speakers saying "system failed CPU test" I get all the lights on my PC tower on, the three lights on my keyboard are lit up, but my monitor's light is on stanby orange. There is no image on my screen whatsoever. When I push the power button on my monitor, it turns green for a few seconds, then shuts off, never displaying any image. My mouse has the red light coming from the bottom. When I hit the power button on my PC tower, nothing happens,

So I turn off the power strip, and tuen it back on, then hit the power on my tower, this time I get a "system failed VDA (or VGA) test" sound from my speakers. Everything else is like i said in the previous paragraph.

A:Expanding the MFT (MasterFileTable)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Filesystem

In the right pane, look for the value named NtfsMftZoneReservation. If the value doesn't exist, you'll need to add it. Select New | DWORD Value from the Edit menu. The new value will appear in the right pane, prompting you for a value name. Type NtfsMftZoneReservation and press [Enter]. Double-click the new value. You'll then see the Edit DWORD Value screen.

The default value for this key is 1. This is good for a drive that will contain relatively few large files. Other options include:
2—Medium file allocation
3—Larger file allocation
4—Maximum file allocation

To change the value, double-click it. When the Edit DWORD Value screen appears, enter the value you want and click OK. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't give any clear guidelines as to what distinguishes Medium from Larger and Maximum levels of files. Suffice it to say, if you plan to store lots of files on your workstation, you may want to consider a value of 3 or 4 instead of the default value of 1.

When you're done, close Regedit. Your registry changes will be saved automatically. Reboot your workstation. Unlike other registry changes, which take place immediately for maximum benefit, NtfsMftZoneReservation works best on freshly formatted hard drives. This is because XP will then create the MFT in one contiguous space. Otherwise, it will just modify the current size of the MFT, instantly fragmenting it. Therefore, it�... Read more

You can extend the 150>195 without too much trouble. but splitting the empty space to the first 55 and the 150 is a lot harder. In either case you are going to need a third party app to do it for you. One I have used in win 7 32bit that works is parigon disk suite 2009. there are many others and everyone has their own personal favor.

As long as the laptop's MB supports 8GB of RAM, then a 4GB RAM module with the same specs as the current 4GB module should work.

I need a few more ports at home, as I'm using 4 wired computer with my router (as well as 2 wireless ones). I just got Xbox Live, so I don't really want to keep switching out wires everytime I want to play, so I finally gave in and decided I'd buy a hub.

Now, what I'm trying to figure out is, being the cheapskate that I am, what is the minimum price I can pay for a 4-port hub. I probably won't be hooking up another computer to it for awhile, so I figure it's not a huge deal if its 10/100mbps transfer...

However, I wasn't sure if it's still a bad idea to only get a 10mbps hub. The XBox probably doesn't utilize it because I haven't really figured out a way to share the hard-drive on it yet...so I won't be doing any mega file transfering...so as far as I can figure, getting a cheap 10mbps 4port hub should be fine. Also, I don't think it should matter, but any hub I should buy should pretty much be plug-and-play with my Linksys router right?

Good Morning All,

We have an AIX server that is used as our e-mail server (Squirell Mail). The /home directory is filling up quite rapidly. We cleaned it out once a few months back by getting rid of a lot of e-mail that were obviously just old. That dropped it down to 60% used or so. Now it has krept back up to 99%. I'm told that there is a way to tell how much each directory has been allocated and whether there is any room to expand. Basically I need to know how to check this and then If there is room to be expanded into how I resize the /home directory into that space. Thank you all for your help. As you can tell I am a unix beginner at best. Thanks again.

Well, for disk usage there's du command (-g, -k or -m parameters make the sizes easier to understand). lsfs should list the filesystems and give some general information about them.

Resizing /home depends on the filesystem used. I found this as one example for AIX.

However, I've never used AIX myself, so I don't know much about the details.

Good Morning;

New PC running Vista Premium with Explorer 7 Hangs-up/freezes on a regular basis. Specifically going from url to url, page/site will begin to load, blue completion bar at the bottom of the page/toolbar begins to fill and the cursor (blue circluar) turns but page never completes loading. I can wait for hour and nothing happens. When I go to Task Mgr (Ctrl/Alt/Del) it indicates "...program not responding...". Eventually I'll close the program down thru Task Mgr and logon again to the Internet.

I've tried to isolate whether the problem is Explorer 7 or Vista itself as both according to most search engine inquiries are vulnerable to this problem. I have used sfc /scannow to verify Vista files are NOT corrupt and a literal laundry list of alleged fixes for Explorer 7 including doing a "RESET" but the thing persists on hanging- (BTW, ran 4 different virus/malware scans and all came-up clean, so the problem doesn't appear to be virus/security related)-

Does anyone have a remedy as it appears to be a major characteristic with both Vista and Explorer 7 with a lot of fixes- I just haven't been able to find one that works!

Many thanks in advance-

If Limbo were to the right of C, you could likely do it with Windows Disk Management. But Limbo is to the left.

So you would need a third party application such as Acronis Disk Director, Partition Wizard, or others that escape me at the moment. I think Partition Wizard 4.2.2 is a free download.

While you are at it, you may as well put C to the extreme left to make it easier on yourself later on.

Hello all,

I'm in the process of trying to expand my Windows 7 partition. However, I'm not entirely sure how to go about it in my particular circumstances.

I have about 7 gigs of unallocated space immediately prior on the drive to the System Reserved boot partition, with Windows 7 itself immediately following that.

Due to this layout I can't expand the Windows 7 partition directly; the partitioner also doesn't seem to offer any option to move either the boot or the 7 partition in front of the unallocated space to at least place the Windows 7 partition next to the unallocated space.

I would move the partitions with a different tool such as GParted, but I'm concerned that this may make it impossible to boot Windows 7 once again, as moving a Windows Vista partition once did.

I wonder whether anyone could offer some advice?

A:Expanding Windows 7 partition

Well..... SIW2....here we go again.....

A couple of questions.

1) Is it a multi boot configuration?

2) How manny physical HDDs do you have?

3) Do you have a disk imaging tool and are you comfortable with it?

IMO the first step is to get rid of the "System Reserved" partition.

There are a couple of options available.

There is a thread that expands on the topic, the cause and corrective steps: http://www.sevenforums.com/software/...es-work-6.html

I wonder if anyone can help me with the following.

I have an Acer laptop with 160GB hard drive split as follows:

First partition (hidden recovery drive) 12GB
Second partition (C including system and boot) 79 GB - 10% Free space left
Third partition (D Data) 79 GB - 93% Free space left

I would like to shrink the D partition and expand the C partition, however, I have found that the disk management tool in Vista does not allow for this as the free space created is not adjacent to the C drive.

I have looked into using EASEUS but in their support pages they mention it is not advisable to use the software if the system does not reside on the first partition (I assume this is the case on my setup).

I also read elsewhere that it is possible to delete the D partition the expand the C partition if there is nothing important on the D partition, however, I also read that this was not a wise move if the D partition was a Data partition as it may cause Windows not to load.

Does anyone have any experience of dealing with this particular problem?

Hi guys,

I am about to install another 1Tb HDD into my new build. Currently my system is set up as below (its a W7 64 bit HP setup)



My current 1 Tb drive is split into 2 partitions, E:/ for Data and F:/ for Image backups. When I add in the new 1Tb drive I intend to give half the space to Image backup as I will be imaging other bits and bobs too.

This means that the images on my current F:/ partition will be copied over onto a new 0.5 Tb partition on my new drive. I will then want to expand the current E:/ partition to fill the disk. If that makes sense?

Do you recommend i do this in windows disk manager (if it can even be done in windows disk manager) or should i be using some other recommended tool.

Thanks guys

I would not move WIndowsImageBackup files as it can corrupt them. They must at least be run from their original drive-root location. This is another reason many here choose a more flexible imaging app.

I love the Windows 7 Start Menu, and its versitality astounds me at times, but the inability for the "Computer" menu to be completely expandable cripples quite a bit of my productivity...

This problem does not exist with the personal menu, which quite frankly I could care less about completely expanding.

In general, Windows 7 has seemed to abandon the concept of expanding menus which can actually make things much much quicker at least for me, but I have gotten a separate toolbar working in the taskbar, but this seems inconvenient coming from someone who has always used classic menus on the Start Menu.

Don't get me wrong, I am very GLAD that Windows 7 makes such improvements to the way the start menu functions and in general these improvements have greatly added to my efficiency, but this really cripples someone like me!

Just switched from an old Gateway Win 98SE (that worked just fine until all the new software revisions started to obsolete it even more than it was).

I have hunted and pecked my way through most basic operating procedures but I can't find the way to expand all the different places I go on the computer. If you're in a window and manually expand it to full screen, the next screen you go to is the small minimized size. Someone told me to go to the next small screen, expand it by pulling out the corners until it reached full screen size and then, instead of hitting the X in the upper right corner, go to the file menu on left side of the screen and hit "exit" to get out of that window. I have tried this on both applications and Web stuff and it doesn't work. Is there a way to do this or am I stuck with having to expand every new window I go into?

How far can you expand your average dell computer?

hey all, could someone tell me if i can change the motherboard in my factory dell vostro 410 desktop, so that i can replace it with a motherboard that is SLI enabled?

If so what motherboards should i be looking for, is there a specific one due to the size of the case?

Also, being a dell computer i realize your limited into what your changing, does that apply to the PSU and CPU?

Thank You, look forward to your replies

A:HELP: Expanding Dell Computer

The case is standard ATX size so a standard ATX motherboard will fit. Find one that is SLI enable. Since you are switching the motherboard out, why not build a PC from scratch? You'll have to look in the case but the PSU should be interchangeable.

This more a question than a 'problem'...

When you dropdown a menu, you get a selection of the ones you most recently used, and you have to click on the double-down-arrow to see the rest. Is there a way that allows me to always see the full menu instead of just the selection?

Thanks,

When installing Win 7 it comes upi with an error code ******** during windows expanding still at 0% after maybe 2 minutes.

I have 3 harddrive showing at the moment and though there was a problem with the partitions, so i put my XP cd in and deleted all partition and all are now unallocated.

Thought this may solve the problem, i have been reading and somewhere around the forum it has been mentioning that there maybe issues with video cards. I have a Winhauppage TV tuner. could this be the problem. I do not need this now so i can take it out.

if someone can give me ideas, i am doing it tonight. so a quick repsonse would be great!!

I often drag from the right pane to the left pane in Windows Explorer. In each case I ALWAYS expand the left pane first so that I can see the folder I want to drag into.
However, if that folder already has subfolders it often expands and I have no idea where the drag will end up. Is it possible to turn off this autoexpanding function?

A:How to turn off auto expanding

You are correct that folders will open in the left pane. But the target folder will always be highlighted.

In fact, you can move the highlight up and down the entire C\: drive all day, opening every folder, until you finally release the left mouse button in the highlighted folder

BTW1: Of course, someone in the A-team might know how to turn off the folder action.

BTW2: I never use drag and drop in Windows Explorer. I use Ctrl+X in the source right pane, then Ctrl+V in the target right pane.

Reason: Because several times I've dropped into the incorrect folder. Either because the folder name was *similar* to the correct folder name. Or *identical* to the correct folder name, but in the wrong branch

By opening the target right pane, I can see what files and dates already exist (if any).

I have recently decided to try Windows 7 and made the necessary preparations. I am trying to build a dual boot system with the OEM 32bit Vista Home Premium and 64bit Windows 7. My machine is far above the specs and I have 3gb ram.

I burned the image twice after reviewing the other posts in the forum. I burned the first on at 8x and after reviewing prev posts I burned again at 4x. Both freeze at the expanding files 0%. The first one would hang for hours until I told it to cancel. The new one hangs for a few minutes and then gives an error that there is a corrupt or missing file.

I also read that this may be a result of ACHI but my bios does not allow me to disable.

I would appreciate anyone's thoughts and hope I can get pointed in the right direction.

Thank you all in advance.

I'm a little puzzled here...

Just got a laptop, Gateway 6635b with:

Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 900
Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) supports up to 128MB shared video memory
It came with / is currently set to 64MB of shared video memory... I want to expand it to the full 128MB, and I'm lost as to what I need to do... do I need to buy or is it purely an internal setting where I need to allocate some more of the memory to video...

I'm quite experienced with desktops but am new to laptops... so help is much appreciated!!
 

A:Expanding DVMT in Laptop

It's "shared" memory so it will use your main system RAM.

Look in the BIOS for settings, if there are none then it may just use "what it needs" at any time up to 128 MB.

This is my objective:

Move a copy of a XP Acronis image onto the virtual XP I now have running. Then use a CD to "restore the image to the virtual XP". I went into the V-disk manager and set the virtual HD max size to 300 GB.

Next I mount the virtual and try to copy the image into a pre-made folder, but there is not enough room: just the original ~125 GB; not the 300 GB.

Probably I am trying to do something either in the wrong way or it cannot be done.

Suggestions welcomed....

A:Problem with expanding virtual HD

Hi there
Do it this way

1) Create New Virtual Machine -- BUT DON'T INSTALL THE OS.
2) define the size of your VHD's for the Virtual machine.
3) set the Virtual machine to boot from a bootable ACRONIS recovery program (either via physical DVD /CD or an ISO image)
4) Power on the VM
5) at the Acronis boot point to your acronis image and follow the on screen instructions to restore the image. The smaller image will simply install into the large image.
6) now simply re-boot the VM

However I have a better solution -- I'm not sure why an XP system would need 300GB HDD space -- you should once you've got the machine up and running try and split the OS away from the DATA -- an XP OS partition shouldn't be more than 20 GB at the most. Then your data could go on to its own partition -- and if you decide to scrap / upgrade the XP system you've still got all your DATA intact.

Cheers

I have a D-Link WIFI router with an ip 192.168.0.1.
Its in the first floor.
The signal doesn't reach the ground floor. So I bought an Edimax EW7206APg with am ip 192.168.2.1 to use as a repeater.
The problem is I don´t know how to setup correctly the network to have internet access in the PC in the first floor and in the one at the ground floor. Actually I only managed to have web access on the one in the first floor, but not in the one at the ground floor.

The pc in the first floor is in the backyard of the house directly connected to the DI-524 by a ethernet cable, and a cable modem is connected to the router.
The EW7206APg is 7 meters of the computer in the front of the house.
The ground floor pc is almost exactly under the EW7206APg in the first floor. It receives average wifi signal.

I've had a little experience setting up a wireless lan, but this new configurations is a bit confusing, so, can you help me with this one, please?.

Thanks in advance .

Whipon.

I have 2 linksys routers that are WRT54GS, and one that is WRT54G. Very similar models, except for the speedboost difference. I previously had just the WRT54G hooked up and it works fine. I decided to add two more routers to the other parts of the house (in a series, first router connected to second router, and then second connected to the third). I can get the second router to work (DHCP off for routers 2 and 3). But when I plug in the third router, I can not get internet. Even more interesting to me is when I connect my computer to the 3rd router, i can ping only the first router. (I also made router 1's ip 192.168.1.1, 2's 192.168.1.2, and 3's 192.168.1.3) I can not ping router 2 or 3, even though I am dirctly connected to it. I have tried both 2nd and 3rd router in gateway and router mode under the advanced settings, but I can not get it to work. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you.

Howdy,

I was hoping that some kind soul would have an answer to this problem. I am new to Windows Live Mail, and Windows 7, so I hope I haven?t overlooked anything obvious.

When I receive an email message, I hear the "bee-do" sound when it arrives. However, the inbox folders which I have set-up, and linked to message rules, do not automatically expand to show the presence of a new message. Nor do I get a "(1)" beside "unread email", or "unread from contacts" at the top.

I do get the ?(1)? after I expand the relevant folder manually. But if they are collapsed, and if I don't hear the sound, I often miss the email. Moreover, when I do go to the folder that contains the email, it does not go to the unread message automatically ? the last message I read in that folder is still highlighted. That would seem to be related, but I?m not sure how to fix it.

I have, of course, checked the box "automatically display folders with unread messages" under tools>options

TIA for any suggestions,

Andrew,
Ontario

A:Inbox subfolders not expanding automatically

That seems to be how it works in WLM which is different from WM. All we can do is hope they will fix it for the next version (Wave 4) now in Beta. As a workaround, instead of depending on the "auto display" feature, just keep those folders likey to receive mail always displayed.

Example: Depending on what the user selects in the "Product" field, certain fields will then appear according to which product was selected. And then as more options are entered for that product, the next section of the form will appear with additional fields.

Hope that explains it. Thanks.
