Re: help with a system shut down?

Hi, does it let you get into windows then give you a 60sec countdown if it does, its a virus. its kinda easy to fix this one,
Once its into windows click start button, click run then type
shutdown -a (press enter)
this should stop the countdown
you need to download or install a new virus checker,
this one is good and lasts 30days free,
Remove viruses and should work fine..

Have a good christmas


Ps you will have to do the run, shutdown -a everytime the countdown appears until the virus is removed...

Changing a cpu on a compaq 5000T/REM

I've located this description when installing the pentium 4 processor on Windows XP. If you have not performed these steps this may be the cause of what you are experiencing. To save you time I've pasted the section below--> Operating System Support
Nearly all modern operating systems designed for the Intel Architecture have support for the Pentium 4 processor, although some may require specific versions or processor support files. Many Microsoft operating systems like Windows* 98 SE, Windows NT* 4 with Service Pack 5, Windows* 2000, Windows* ME, and Windows* XP support the Pentium 4 processor. Linux* distributions based on the Linux* 2.4 core support the processor. Also, many other vendors have support for the Pentium 4 Processor in their operating systems. System integrators should verify that the operating system they have selected supports the Pentium 4 processor.

Note: Windows XP or certain versions of Linux are required for Hyper-Threading Technology2 support for the Pentium 4 processor. For additional information on integrating systems based on the Pentium 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, refer to the Integration Overview for Systems Based on the Intel Pentium 4 Processor Supporting Hyper-Threading Technology.

All operating systems that support the SSE instructions that were first introduced with the Intel® Pentium III processor will also support the SSE2 instructions introduced with the Pentium 4 processor. To experience the power of the SSE2 instructions, it is critical that system integrators install drivers and software that have been optimized for the Pentium 4 processor's SSE2 instructions. For example, for maximum system performance, system integrators using Microsoft operating systems that support DirectX* should load DirectX 8 (or higher).

Software Optimization
With specific drivers that use the SSE2 instructions, graphics accelerators, audio hardware and software, and other system resources can experience substantial performance gain. It is critical that systems also use APIs that use SSE2 instructions to achieve maximum performance. Two examples are Microsoft's DirectX 8 (or higher) and Open GL 1.2 (or higher). Most major graphics accelerator vendors have optimized drivers that use the SSE2 instructions. Graphics card vendors typically highlight support changes with new driver releases. Download and install the latest drivers (dated later than October 2000) from the vendor's Web site. Also, verify that the driver version contains optimization for the Pentium 4 processor.

Many applications also use the SSE2 instructions to experience the breakthrough performance of the Pentium 4 processor. System integrators should contact software vendors to verify support and determine version information.

System performance is greatly affected by proper operating system and driver installation processes. For example, it is important to install the latest Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility immediately after installing most Microsoft operating systems to ensure proper drivers for the chipset are installed prior to installation of other drivers. System integrators should confirm boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems are optimally configured and integrated.

Boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor-based systems require proper integration. System integrators that follow the guidelines in this document will experience higher customer satisfaction by providing higher quality systems. 

Please let me know if you have success with this.
Thank You, Raph30

Not showing on the screen in the sense, is the Operating System [assuming XP] system properties window not showing the processor details? If its the case, generally some processors will have some issues with the Operating system.You can fix it by downloading some "hot fixes" from Microsoft.
Try this: 1.Open the "run" dialog box [Windows key + R] 2.Type "dxdiag" [without quotes] 3.Press enter. 4.You will be able to see the processor configuration in that window.
If not succesfull, please post. I will suggest another method.

Upgrade from Pentium 3 to Pentium 4

what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.

Petium 3 processor with windows xp

Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too. Here is a small list from Fixya of Dells & Pent III.
