Media center receiver service

I fit a dual core opteron 280 on my 939 board instead of the 4000+ as media center kept saying it was low on resources, since then i have had constant "media center receiver service has encountered a problem and needs to close" messages about every 2 minutes, i think i need to re instal mce 2005, but the setup disk will not recognise my sata drive, and to make matters worse i do not have a floppy drive in the thing to load the sata driver at startup, also i am annoyed about having to go through the activation rubbish at the end, i have heard there are two files you can save out to avoid this

Hi.....you need set the hard drive from RAID to SATA in bios settings in order to detect it in the MCE installation...i can tell you how to go there "but i need the motherboard model"...
Install the OS the normal way...after installation..when windows starts for the first time...restart it...then go on pressing Key "F5"...a menu will appear..select safe mode...when windows loads ...then reboot it the normal way...

PLEASE don't forget to RATE ME (FIXYA) for my help..........

    i would suggest you to attach your drive as slave in your friends system and then format the system.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Aug 16, 2008

    if that is does happen without any problem then there is some problem in *********** board only.

    you will have to sort out the problem step by step

    thank you


  • dewan nafees ahmed Aug 16, 2008

    and if you want your MB to look for USB
    then set the device priority as USB to first priority

    that would help you

    thank you


  • dewan nafees ahmed Aug 16, 2008

    even if that is a problem then connect it in a computer and use win98 and do a complete format and remove the cos partitions also.

    this would make a complete erase an make the hard drive fresh.

    if you find any difficulty in doing this then your HDD is dead. you will have to repair it or buy a new one.

    thank you

    please post back you results.
    we will help you further.

You need to reinstall Windows.

    When this happens it means Windows is not working fine with installing software, often reinstalling software is not enough and you need to reinstall Windows.
    You will need to do a backup of your files first.
    I see if I can find a download for mce 2005.

    Try also rolling back the system to a previous date before you had the problem using system restore.
    To do system restore go to:


    • Start Menu

    • Programs

    • Accessories

    • system tools

    • System restore

    • Follow the wizard.
    To Skip activation you need to use a pirate program that will modify some Windows registry entries, this can cause more problems in the future, a common consequence is Windows not being recognised as Genuine when doing updates.

    If system is low on resources update RAM , an efficient system should have no less than 2 GB RAM.

    To solve the disk not being recognised problem you need to install Windows as new installation, booting directly from CD. this will erase all data and software into your hard drive.

    Some bios won't allow to see external usb drives when you boot from Windows setup disk. In this case you will have to install the system on an internal hard drive first, then you start a new installation (starting from Windows, not from boot) to install the system on the external hard drive.

What motherboard can i upgrade to 836GM Media Center PentiumD 820 Dual-Core 2.8GHz


I believe this was answered for you. It's a Gateway which takes a proprietorial motherboard. Yes, you could get a new motherboard and processor to fit, but at the price you'd pay, I would suggest you get a new computer instead. The prices are really low right now.

I am thingking of getting a Thunder K8WE (S2895)


Hi!

Of course it can run Windows Xp 32 bit. The computer specification is much higher for the operating system to run and there can be no problem for it.

About the hard drive, it depends upon it RPM (Rotate Per Minute) and it's data access time. I think SATA drive is good to use.

Hope it helps..

Thank you for reaching Fixya.

Please leave comments for further assistance.

Hello,

The processor will work on a dual core mb. Most DC boards are design to support both solo and dual core proccessors. Once installed, the board will adjust speed and FSB to the specs of the processor. (As long as the processor is within operating range of the board you use.

Error message for media center receiver pops up every 10 secs. "Media Center Receiver Service has encountered a problem and needs to close". I don't need or want to use the media center. Fix?


Go to Start>Run> Type in msconfig then go to the startup tab at the top and uncheck anything that says media center. Then go to the services tab and uncheck anything in there that says media center then let it restart your computer.

HP Desktop hitting 100% CPU many days now?


Can I get some more information on what task manager is saying is taking all the resources? I've seen this before and it turned out to be some adware had snuck in and every time I would use IE7 it would double in size. Thanks to having dual procs I could get to resolve. When you go to Task Manager and look under services, see who keeps taking all your resources. Don't try anything too quickly. Try to rename the file where it is located on your PC. If you come up with an error that will let you go on, see what happens. If it is a deadly error, rename the file and we'll find another way

Intel cpu comparable to "Dual Core AMD Opteron 1212HE"


This is an AMD 2nd generation Opteron CPU, running at 2GHz. It is a single core device. So a comparison would be against Intel business CPU - the Xeon, again compare against a single core.
