  1. Go for a single x1950xtx and it'll give you the bragging rights you crave.:cool:
  2. Have you tried the video card in the other PCIe slot and checked the contacts, I recently had a Gforce4Mx break a track on the AGP connector which would work fine in 640x480 and safe mode but any other resolution would result in video corruption and blank screens eventually.
  3. When Installing MCE on my Rig it prompted me to insert the Media extension disk but none of the disks I had hade the title it asked for, I assumed that it was the "non XP" disk that was in the retail pack and away it went. It's been plain sailing since then. Using an Xbox 360 to watch downloaded films on the widescreen TV away from the drone of the (soon to be replaced) case fans was worth XP MCE.
  4. Seagate and DFI works just fine in my rig. Your slipstreaming of SP2 and NVidia Sata drivers may have missed the mark at some point. or maybe I was just lucky:rolleyes:
  5. XP 64 installed onto a different disk partition should be able to address all 4Gb of memory. While running XP64 you could launch VMWare and allocate more memory to each Virtual PC you are running. Under XP32 the system would only see ~3Gb of memory and the rest would be unaddressable because of the OS not the hardware. Running a development/test setup on another partition with dual boot is a good idea anyway just in case you screw things up by accident.
  6. Yes, The routers should negotiate with each other seamlesly to determine the conections that are in use and determine the best route for data from one machine to another. The other option is to run another wire up through the ceiling and connect the 360 up to router in the living room.(not a favourite with the other half)
  7. Check that the Device managed is showing two network adapters without exclamation marks. If there is only one then you need to go into the Bios to enable the other one. I have My 360 hooked up to a router and the router hooked up to the PC. With XP you are limited to sharing Music and Still Pictures from the PC to the 360. With XP Media Center Edition you can use the 360 as a Media extender which does a kind of remote desktop to the PC and displays it on the TV. This also allows you to watch movies stored on the PC through the 360 (even DRM Vids).
  8. It's been said many times "don't use nTune and OC via BIOS" and by better people than myself.
  9. Have you tried removing all the front panel connectors and powering up from the onboard switches? If these are on the wrong pins it could be bridging the wrong connections and doing horrible things to your board and PSU.
  10. You can some times get round the major issues by using Sysprep from the Microsoft resource kit to prep your hard disk for transplant before moving it. I have had some success with this in the past, Not always successful but mostly. It is not a procedure for the feint hearted though and I suggest you do a lot of reading to make sure you understand the process. I it the process the OEM system builders use to deploy disk images to all the machines they deliver from a single source and once the customer gets it thet only have to enter their XP product code and away they go, It does not uninstall any programs or delete files it just prepares windows to do all the detection and configuring that it would do during an installation.
  11. I had a couple of 256MB Dimms left over from my previous rig so I thought I would slot them in to see if the board would like it. I wasn't too hopefull because of other posts on this board but it did work. I have 2x 512MB (matcher pair) and 2x 256MB (matcher pair) they are even from different manufacturers. I probably got lucky and they both run of the same voltage . Can you check that they are of similar spec with the manufacturers web site in case you are undervolting ons set and overvolting the other.
  12. It could be that Kapersky took offence to one or more files from the cat update and left you with an incomplete video driver setup. The memory access error is usually due to a driver calling a function in a dll that either does not exist or is a different version. In your initial post the memory address that could not be accesed is below the calling address so the page file worries can be forgotten. (I personally set mine to a fixed value, max and min to the same number to save tne file becoming fragmented on the disk) AVG Free has been my friend since Norton expired.
  13. If you make sure that the mobo is jumpered so that the case speaker is connected and while booting press DEL as fast as you can you can hear when the key buffer is full because you will hear clicks from the speaker. Another test is to press NumLock while booting to see the status light change then press Del. I had a small form keyboard and the Del key did not send the right scancode for the bios but the windows driver understood it ok.
  14. With all the bios settings at default or auto it works great in my rig. My settings are similar to WintersFury's, so I can't really help there and if you can't get booted then you can't change the bios. 1.. Try Clearing the CMOS, 2.. only using one stick 3.. move the one stick into different slots. 4.. Check your PSU with a Meter, It might be putting out 3.3v and 5v but no 12v hence no fans. 5.. reseat your CPU, check you haven't bent one of the pins (a friend once tried to extract her CPU from the ZIF socket without opening the lever) I can say that i had quite a good response from my ram while trying to find the max overclock according to THE GUIDE.
  15. tcpip.sys got knobbled in XP SP2 so that P2P apps had a harder time having multiple half open connections, there was a patch about that raised the limit from 10(in SP2) to 50 but if you use Windows Update then it will likely be replaced sooner or later. Check the Bitcomet open connections and drop it to below 10 to see if it still happens. http://www.lvllord.de/?lang=en&url=4226patch/faq
  16. Matrox do a couple of products that might help Their Dual Head2Go box splits the image over two screens so with a second Video card and two Dual Head2Go boxes you could spread the image over the four projectors. You might have to get creative with the screen resolutions in windows though. The othe option is to go and buy specific hardware to do the job, again matrox have a quad video card. http://www.matrox.com/mga/workstation/3dws...qid/qid_pro.cfm
  17. I think TomsHardware guide did a similar test and found the same. It is due to the increased air pressure and density in the Push configuration, in the Pull configuration the fan will lower air pressure/density over the processor and therefore there will be less air to carry the heat away.
  18. My old rig just could not cut it at the LanParty so like you I went DFI and I Love it. I read the froums a bit before upgrading to my Sig Rig and the guys and gals here sounded helpful so I plunged in and threw all the bits together on afternoon and was running XP that night. I have since been 'fiddleing' with the Overclock settings and my CPU maxes out at 222x12 and the Ram at 235 I think the CPU could go further but the temps were getting a little hot for my liking. I really wasnt expecting much from my VS RAM but it pushed 3D06 to 6000 and still runs stable.
  19. lf you go for a sapphire toxic x1900xtx then the card is still quite long and overhangs the northbridge but the water cooler is separate so you can put it in a spare pci slot. l did find that the cooler doesn't connect with the pcie slots on my MB because it too over hangs the north bridge.
