Hello experts I've got an issue opening UDF format files.  On all my other user's systems it auto launchs & opens with Widnows Media Player.  I've gone into Control Panel to verify the autoplay settings, gone into Associate a file type / protocol with a program, UDF is not in the list.  If i open windows media play and select the disc from there it plays.  I'm at a lose with, any comments are appreciated.   I've attached the error message encountered.  Thanks in advance.

I just installed a IOGEAR 2-Port SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 (gen2) Type-A PCI-Express Card. Only to realize I need more 3.0 ports. I can certainly pull this and replace it with a 4-port card of another brand, but 2-port card is inexpensive and I have 2 extra slots, so I was thinking of getting an installing a second 2-port card, same one. Any technical reason not to do this? Two two-port cards is the same price as a four-port.

Hi,

my nextbook model (NXW116QC264) happens to go dead. When you plug in the charger - the red lights comes on but when you press the power - it wont come on?

What will be an issue here? Any idea?

Also, is there a way to extract data off it?

Would you purchase Sony's Koov for your child? It's definitely a cool concept and I love the look of the "pixel" blocks, but the high price point is definitely a deterrent with more affordable competing products available.

Sometimes in the Internet World, the recognized brands charge a lot to show how "Great" are their products.  This is the space for startups to have a chance.

I love seeing these kind of products; this stuff is so cool! I've really been wanting to get something like this for myself, but I'm more inclined towards going with Lego's Mindstorms since they've been around so long and been through many revisions. Plus, they're Lego; can't go wrong with Lego!

I have a problem with my computer. I have Windows 7 ultimate and about two weeks ago after I updated my avast(tm) antivirus, my computer crashed on start-up. So I booted it in safe mode and through msconfig.exe I was able to isolate the problem and turn it off. Now however, I can't connect to the internet and everything I have tried so far to fix it has been proving fruitless. I have an idea on what to do but I can't seem to find the file I need. It seems I need an EAP.txt file, but I can't find it online. IF someone knows where to get it can you link it and walk me through how to replace it with my old one? I'm moving soon so I need this done ASAP

My team has had reoccurring issue with usb peripherals, ( keyboard, mouse, web cams) stop working.  Event logs ID 219 indicates several "Kernel-PnP" events  in which  drivers fail to load.  

Root hubs in device manager states  driver failed to load for hardware because previous instance of the driver is still in memory (code  38)    

the issue  does not reoccur once Citrix receiver is uninstalled.
so has anyone seen this issue and knows definitively why would Citrix receiver cause a fault.

Environment  - Win7 Ent -x64

Hi all,     I use a Softphone (SIP) and a headset for making calls on my surface pro.      Randomly the caller can no longer hear me.     If I press mute twice on my headset it is restored and they can hear me.    So far I have tried 3 headsets and 2 difference software (SIP Clients).    I also tested using the dock or plugged directly in.     It keeps happening in all scenarios.     I have another user using the same software including windows versions and they do not experience this issue.   So now I am assuming this is a surface pro bug.    I have found a few articles related to random microphone mutes in windows 10 and applied all fixes.     But for me the problem remains.    Any one else experience this problem?

Due to budget restraints, we recently purchased 3 Dell R720xd servers for a small VMware cluster. I’ve always purchased Dell Direct but the budget just wasn’t there at this time for new servers. I spent a while looking for a reliable company that specialized in used hardware and found one that was in business for over 20 years and had a decent return & warranty policy.

I received all three servers Friday, visually inspected everything, and racked all equipment. Over the weekend I ran a 48 hour memtest86 running all the cores. I wanted to make sure there were no memory issues and check the heat of the processors to make sure everything was cooling correctly. While no errors were reported on memtest86 and the IDRAC showed health good, I was kind of alarmed on how high the CPU temperatures were getting and how slow the fans were running. What really struck my attention was how high the non-adjustable Warning & Critical Threshold are reporting.

idrac-temp.PNG
When I look up the processors on the intel website (Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2680 0 @ 2.70GHz) it shows the T Case at 85 C, yet the IDRAC shows warning at 97 C and Critical at 102 C. Now even after a 48 hour test the max the temp a CPU got to was 82 C. During that time though I noticed the fans were only running around 18%. I’m not sure if the fans weren’t speeding up because of the thresholds showing in the IDRAC or if there was a setting I could change in the BIOS. I did see a post where Dell claimed to …

NIce article although the author doesnt seem to know that there are two measures of a disks performance
1) Throughput - measured in MBytes/sec
2) Bandwidth - Measured in IOPS

These two measures are mutually linked ie 100MB/s can either be 1*IOPS*100MB, or 100*IOPS*1MB

The figures seem to also show a lot of cache effects, or have dubious provenance,  otherwise how does a USB connected drive achieve 2289.5 IOPS (how do you get .5 of an IOPS anyhow)

Hi Gerald,

I do understand there are several things to take into consideration when measuring the performance of any hard drive, however going into depth in so far as eliminating cache effects would go beyond the scope of what this article is attempting to achieve. You may have also noticed that I didn't mention or talk about the effect FSB speeds can have on a hard drive's performance either?

As I mentioned at the start of the article;
The reason you might want to skip the QD32 tests is that they're not particularly useful for real life scenarios and just take additional time to run. QD stands for "Queue Depth" so the software also measures "separate thread" transfer speeds. Information not of much use for our purposes. I only include the results that I got below for the sake of completeness.
I think the general flow of the article from that point forward clearly shows it is targeting beginners to hard disk performance measuring and not representing any type of advanced hard drive performance analysis.  
The figures seem to also show a lot of cache effects, or have dubious provenance, otherwise how does a USB connected drive achieve 2289.5 IOPS (how do you get .5 of an IOPS anyhow)

Indeed.  How do you get a .5 of an IOPS ?  

Or even a .7 or .8  

How about you tell us?  :-)

Thanks for your feedback.  Always great to hear back from ones readers.

Best regards,
Andrew

I have IBM server 3650 with 4 hard disk install slot no 1,2,3 is have HDD 750GB and they are in raid 5 and the same array.
in addition. the slot number 4 have hard disk 300 GB this hard disk was faulty I have removed and inserted into the running server and it went to an orange solid light and flashing green light. I assumed at that time it was rebuilding the drive. it is still it rebuilding the drive.

Moreover, I found one partition disappear

Does anybody know why the light is flashing green light? on the drive?  Any suggestions for?

i have an i-7 with 16 GB Ram on the above board, and would like to install an M2 SSD as BOOT drive
i have currently an Samsung 850 - 500 Gb drive
1-will i see a speed increase - or is it not noticeable (only measureable
2-what model should i use ?  is the M.2: Samsung 960 Pro compatible with my board ? and is it worth the price difference?
3-or do you recommend others ?  also, which are the FASTEST supported for this Asus board?

actually i'm running windows 7 64 bit and windows 10 on the SSD in Dual boot

I am about to buy a new laptop with SSD, i7 processor, 8 GB RAM, Windows 10 Pro and configurations that should make it considerable faster than my current 5 years old laptop. Then I plan to just transfer my current Windows 7 Home system (with all program installations) from this old laptop to my new laptop to save time and effort and get going immediately.

But will I just transfer this slowness of the old system to the new system?

My Apple mouse moves fine horizontally across my 30" Thunderbird monitor, but I have to lift and move it too much for vertical motion (e.g., to move the pointer from the bottom to the top of the screen). This isn't a problem when I use my Logitech mouse. I've researched online and found virtually nothing about the issue.

I've made every available change to the mouse configuration, including maximum acceleration, but nothing affects helps.

Does anyone know how to resolve this?

We have timeclockplus 2000 timeclock which has  a password we need to reset. Since our support with clock maker Data Management has expired they are asking $550!!! to reset password (in the past they were just giving  an unlock code base on serial number over the phone) see images of timeclock attached. Manufacture use to sell clocks for $2500. on ebay you can buy one for 50 to 200 if available .
I am just wondering if anyone knows the way around it?
