Couple of things you want to try:
0. what operating system are you using? 9x may require for you to manually install and assign resources, 2000/xp should take care of resource asignment automatically
0.1. check if the bios version you have is the latest one, if not try to get an update and install... (backup your data first and make sure you get the right update or you may mess your bios for good)
1. check resource assigning in your bios, make sure your irq's are avaliable to be usuable by your operating system to used in order to assign them to the fire wire card.
2. it may take some time but you way want to check through the properties on each of the devices in device manager and look in the resource tab for any conflicts or
3. go to start > run > msinfo32 and look for hardware>share/conflicts

My employer blocked facebook and it happens to be the only way i stay current with far away family. is there anyway to get around the block??

You may, but it would probably get you fired, if you check your license agreement and/or terms of employment. Just because their security methods are cheesy and arbitrary doesn't mean they can't catch you and fire you for circumventing them. An HTTP tunnel with a portable version of Firefox running off a flash drive is one way. The firewall can see the encrypted traffic, but they don't know what's in it. If they are already using tunnels for secure traffic it might not set off alarms, but if they see a tunnel all by itself, they'll freak out and trace it right back to your work computer's IP address. A cgi proxy would be better, but most of the public ones get blocked, even before sites like Facebook. You could also run a cgi proxy server from a remote location, but they can still trace that traffic and figure it out.

Many times, they can't bother with individual breaches or maybe they don't have the resources to run individual anomalous traffic to ground. This is primarily why they do this arbitrary blocking. It's a shotgun solution designed to reduce their network overhead and reduce, but not eliminate, a threat vector for malicious software.

It's ham-fisted and ignorant, because it goes too far on the side of limiting their own users and not far enough on the side of network security. Every time a web resource gets good enough to gain widespread popularity, it's going to get blocked in this model. Of course it's part of a larger "comprehensive strategy", but the bottom line is that they don't care enough to look for ways to shore up their capability and security by other methods to accommodate their user's desires.

You and your coworkers need to complain loudly and don't let them off the hook.

Sounds like a bus thruput problem. you probably have too much happening on your computer and/or not enough ram and cpu resources. You can beef up your video card by replacing the one thats in it already with a high end card, and add extra ram to your machine. Most pentium 4 machines at 1.4ghz or higher can play videos on windows XP while running 1 gig of ram on an nvidia 7500 or higher gpu with 128 dedicated gpu ram on-card. Basically, your computer is choking on the data and it cannot produce it fast enough to play smoothly. you need to upgrade your pc to gain additional cpu resources. Best option is speak with a pc shop to see about upgrades.

I just installed a new motherboard and graphics card. I had this done at a tech shop, so they should know what they're doing... Anyway, the card is a ATI Radeon HD4650 PCIE 1024MB GDDR2. It's installed in...

Sounds like some kind of conflict. Make sure you have the latest video drivers for your OS. Was the os reinstalled after the new motherboard put in? This could cause problems if you actually managed to get windows running without reinstalling.

I wish to purchase a gaming laptop. Shall a 512 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 graphics card be enough to install most type of pc games on it? Also what type of other features does this laptop have? My...

Personally i wouldn't go with a laptop for gaming unless i absolutely had to: the keybaord is substandard- no mouse- limmitted resources.
But if you have to get one for travel, you want a full blown proccessor, at least 2gig (not sempron or celleron), at least 2 gig of ram, NIC and wi-fi capable and video with enough shared memory to play your game with the highest settings.
Look at the system spec of your games, you want a little more than the games take.
Hope this helps in your decision..Regards..

3d games are not working hp brio ba600

With those computer specs you are going to be limmitted to older or less resource consuming games. You might try turning all the video settings to minimum in the game options, and to turn off everything you dont need in windows itself , while you are playing.
But the bad news is you dont have cpu, video, or memory enough to play most of todays highend 3d games..

Insufficient system resources exist to complete the api

The computer occasionally does not hibernate and you receive an “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API” error message in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, or in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Apparently, the problem is caused by the fact that the Windows kernel power manager doesn’t manage to find a block of contiguous memory to hibernate. This happens occasionally on laptops with 2Gb of RAM. It can be quite annoying when you put your laptop to sleep, pop it in your haversack, then some time later find a discharged battery and a VERY HOT laptop bag , it’s nice that they solved the problem, HOWEVER, you can’t actually download the hotfix, but have to contact Product Support Services for it. I’m not sure if there’s a fee to be paid for it, so I just Googled the hotfix and found a copy elsewhere.
Here’s a copy if anyone wants it: Download here:

My barracuda 7200.7 120gb hdd won't work with power cord inserted but take cord out(of hdd) and computer fires up?

there is a possibility that the power resources of your computer (specifically the power supply) cannot give enough power to the whole PC plus the new HDD, there are lots of options that you can do to get this resolved, some are you remove components in your computer taht is not being used, secpially the one that is plugged to your power supply,

get a power supply that have larger wattage / power capacity.

hope that helps, good luck on this one, just let me know if you should have other questions.

My paint shop pro has slowed to a crawl. I reinstalled it but it didn't help. Any suggestions?

If your system doesnt have enough resources then you may be experience slowing and freezing. Or it could be a Video Card problem.

What are your specs.

Processor speed:

Also try defraging and doing disk cleanup on your system. I couldnt hurt but could help a bit.
