  1. I'll answer my own question there are 86 and 64 folders in the iso so it's a 2 in 1.
  2. Has anyone in the MediaCreationTool used the 'both' choice? There are 3 choices for download 32bit, 64bit or both. Is the 'both' a merged into one iso download (2 in 1) or does the MediaCreationTool just download two separate versions? Thanks in advance.
  3. I did a Macrium image restore. Prior to this when I dragged from any browser's location bar I got a html or htm link. I some how did this when I tried to get when I tried to get the standard right-click and not the url truncated. I can't seem to find the hack. Anyway the .url extension is showing with NeverShowExt in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\InternetShortcut and this should be one of the 'super hidden files'. What has worked is using Types program. You can see the program at this address . It shows that IE is the url association albeit Firefox opens the url. How do I go about fixing this without using Types program? Years ago I remember reading that installing browsers can do this but uninstalling everything but IE showed no change and reinstalling also. Types will change icons but this isn't working with the url suffix. How would I change the icon? Thanks in advance.
  4. I have a Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H board, a year and a half into the 3 year warranty. I started up yesterday and got not sound. Mic input didn't work, speakers produced static, Updated the drivers and the panel showed that there was no recognized intially but 8 hours later there was a popup stated that speakers were just pluged in. Abviously there is something wrong with the onboard audio. My question is do those plug in usb audio cards however small they are, work without the onboard audio chipset?
  5. Well I got rocket dock and convertx to work the problem was they were set in properties to run as admin. Set point still doesn't work nor can I drag and drop to IE.
  6. I am trying to update to windows 8.1. When I installed Win 8 one of the first things I did was to turn off the UAC. I had to turn UAC back on to enter the window store. Certain programs such as Convertxtodvd I could no longer drag and drop to. Logitech Set Point mouse functions stopped to work. Turning UAC off again did not return the drag and drop function nor did setpoint work as before. Can some one help me to restore drag and drop with the uac on? Thanks in advance.
  7. I called up gigabyte and they said unless I was to overclock that the 4pin on tthe Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-450 450W ATX12V Power Supply (the tech said that the recommendation is between 400 to 500 watts) would be enough and even no adapter would be needed. I just was doing a quick look on some reviews on various different gigabyte boards and others were saying basically the same thing. Just to play it safe and my own piece of mind I will get this adapter. Thanks Ponch and bphlpt this would have flown under the radar!
  8. It was an atx board but the but the Antec Sonata 2 from 2006~ chassis were machined for both atx and micro-atx. The board was an ASUS a8n5x (atx) / AMD Athlon 64 3500+. It is really an excellent case. I ran this setup maybe about an hour daily for about 2 1/2 ~ 3 years The power supply has under 2500 hours of use.
  9. Hi, I could use some help in dotting the I's and crossing the T's. I want to swap out my board processor etc. with these: GIGABYTE GA-F2A75M-D3H FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard AMD A8-5600K Trinity 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7560D AD560KWOHJBOX CORSAIR 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model CMV8GX3M2A1600C11 and this will go in my older Antec Sonata There won't be any problems in this combo? Thanks in advance.
  10. Thank you jaclaz!
  11. I have PLEXTOR IDE Model PX-870A I'd like to use it on a board that doesn't have an IDE slot. I've looked at some adapters I don't know how the rational or even if there is a difference in its application. What is the direction of implementation? Does the adapter fit in to the Plextor or does it fit on the board? It would be really helpful if you the reader could direct me to the proper adapter in the Newegg catalog. Thanks in advance.
  12. Thanks a lot! I should have looked at the specs myself sooner. Just one question. The powers supply specs for this board are: Power (system board) one 24-pin EPS 12V connector (ATX-compatible) Would a 20+4 pin work or would it have to be a 24 pin. I was looking at Corsairs and two came up: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply and CORSAIR Gaming Series GS600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply Both should work? Thanks in advance
  13. You know folks I will trust the opinions of this board above others. Does anyone have any familiarity with Dells? I was pressed for time and needed something new fast so I went with a Inspiron 570. I was looking at the Dell forums and saw this post: which the reply was: Have I been asleep? I was under the impression that Dell boards were modified to use a different voltage that only Dell could supply the PSU for. Thanks in advance.
  14. I don't know how to describe this but firstly let me say that there is nothing wrong with the sound drivers or such. I get sound such as media players work, windows start up sounds work etc., the sound icon volume pings, but what I am not getting is the error sound when say you try and use any \ / : * ? " < > | and you get the notification: Filename is Invalid or Cannot Contain Any of the Following Characters \ / : * ? " < > |. Another instance is in imgburn when you are about to burn a folder you get the stats window and that ping is not played. All these sounds work in the sound control panel. No earlier restore point prior to missing sounds resolved this or using Erunt to go earlier registry hive. With erunt I have the original reg when the OS was installed. I have a win7 sp1 slip streamed disk which I found out you cannot do a repair with nor can I get a factory sp1 disk, so that is out of a question. I would like not to reinstall. I once had an experience like this after unistalling VMware. I believe Tuneup Utlities might have caused this. Not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. I just did a reinstall os win 7 64 on a Dell. Prior in the last installation everything pretty much worked as it did with XP. This time I turn off the UAC and I still get constant messages for permission.Certain software which worked In the last install doesn't work I can't get Mike Linn's Startup Monitor to work. I am an Admin but to change the account to the lesser is greyed out is that right? Also my Canoscan Lide 25 the drivers worked fine in the last install now Win7 is say they are 32 bit drivers and the win update isn't loading up drivers it had always shown before. Any help is appreciated.
