Dell Precision 670 slow frame rates with several video cards by David Manvell[_2_]
Reposting this to a couple forums: I've had a Dell Precision 670 for several years now.

Pretty much running 15-30 frames per second in World of Warcraft at 1920x1200 mode with all settings on high. I...

Question about nVidia graphics card features by Dick[_3_]
I have a Gateway desktop system which uses a nVidia 6150SE nForce 430 chipset. I was reading specs about this chipset and it appears that the chip supports a variety of features/functions that have little (if anything) to do with graphics. For example: * gigabit Ethernet * raid 0, 0+1, 1, and 5 RAID * 10 usb ports

How do you direct connect a laptop to pc? by drumz
Laptop has Vista Home Premium and PC Has XP Pro SP2. What's the fastest/best to use: USB, RJ45, Parallel port? And how do I tell Vista which protocol to use to connect to the PC? I have a ton of files (80+GB) that I need to burn to CD on the laptop and doing it through the LAN is too slow. Thanks!

Laptop Slow to Power Off by jaycee
I have a brand new HP laptop dv7-1007TX with Vista Home Premium. At times the power and all lights stay on for a couple minutes after shut down then go out. I'm then afraid to move the laptop in case the HDD is still spinning for some reason. Any comments on this?

New Build by busyboy
Hi All, Just completed a new build, so when I booted up for the first time I found out that I was getting no signal from the graphic card, so therefore I can't get into the bios etc. I have been on to the supplier and they have asked me to do several checks, like moving the memory around etc but still no joy. I am a bit concerned about the power supply to the graphic card. The graphic card...

Possible Fix: Microsoft Force Feedback 2 Joystick and the self center force disabling by funks
Hello, I have a Microsoft Force Feedback 2 Joystick working with the Vista X64 Driver that comes built in. I noticed that games that has support for Force Feedback will disable the Self Centering Feature of the stick and makes it go limp.
