Mimio pens stick

I have a Mimio DMA. The problem is that the pens stick inside the controller and stay on. It looks like the design is set up to release the switch when you lift the pen off the board but it doesn't work. This leaves stray marks on the screens and the Mimio mouse function is pretty much worthless.

I have had this problem with new pens that I bought separately, but not with the original ones that came with the Mimio. There are sites like this one:
http://www.independentproducts.co.uk/ip_mimio_xi_pens_4_pack_pens.htm
that sell (expensive) pens with the name 'Mimio' on that are specifically stated to be Mimio-compatible so they are probably OK. My original pens say 'Expo' on them and have bullet-shaped tips, and they work fine. The first lot of replacements that I bought also say 'Expo' and have square tips and slightly fatter bodies, and they stick.

Tip

If your older PC has lost some zip -- An easy thing to check & fix.


After a while, usually several years, your hard disks wear. As this happens the disks will have errors. Windows keeps track of these errors and if they grow too numerous Widows will take actions designed to reduce the possibility of a catastrophic event. One thing it will do is change the method it uses to access the hard disk. It will change from DMA mode to PIO mode and slow you way down. This tip will restore DMA mode so you can get a little more use out of your aging system. You won't need any disks or special software, but you will have to reboot twice.

In Windows get to Device Manager.

One way to get there is click Start, right click My Computer, select Properties, click Hardware tab, click Device Manager button.

In Device Manager, press the + next to IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.

It should look something like this:

Double click Primary IDE Channel. Click the Advanced Settings tab. If there is no Advanced Settings tab then this tip will not help you, but check the other possibilities (Secondary IDE Channel, other controllers) the same way.

Check to see if the Current Transfer Mode says PIO. PIO stands for Programmed Input Output. It is the slowest mode of disk access. If the Current Transfer Mode is something with DMA (Direct Memory Access), then this tip will not help you as this is the preferred mode.

Check to see if the DMA if available is selected in the Transfer Mode box. If not, select it.

At this point you have determined that you are using PIO mode for one or some of the IDE Controllers and that you have selected DMA in the Transfer Mode. The next thing is to make Windows load the correct DMA driver.

Click the Driver tab.

ea72bd7.jpg

Click the Uninstall button. Click the OK button. Do this for all IDE Controllers that show PIO mode.

Windows will ask if you want to reboot. Let it happen. Windows will reboot, load the DMA drivers, and tell you it has to reboot again. Let it happen.

Now the DMA drivers should have been installed and some of the snap should return to your PC.

Eventually, Windows will revert back to PIO mode. Your disk is wearing out. Get a new one!

DMA drive error.


Its a problem with the windows dma seting for drives. In "device manager", open properties for ur drive and your interface like IDE/ATA controller. There, you can check and change DMA Settings.

Allow max DMA. Do not disable DMA.

U can also check DMA setting on BIOS if ur bios supports it.

Audio and video track are not in sync


I guess that your CDROM Device doesn't have DMA (Direct Memory Access) enabled.

From the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article:

To enable DMA mode using the Device Manager

1.

Open Device Manager.

2.

Double-click IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers to display the list of controllers and channels.

3.

Right-click the icon for the channel to which the device is connected, select Properties, and then click the Advanced Settings tab.

4.

In the Current Transfer Mode drop-down box, select DMA if Available if the current setting is "PIO Only."
If the drop-down box already shows "DMA if Available" but the current transfer mode is PIO, then the user must toggle the settings. That is:

Change the selection from "DMA if available" to PIO only, and click OK.

Then repeat the steps above to change the selection to DMA if Available.
