      I recently purchased a Gateway Solo 9500 notebook computer from a sale at a local university. I bought it without an operating system, so I had a good friend and computer expert install one for me. Everything was working great until I realized there was no sound. I used a gateway service to find the correct driver for my system, ESS Allegro, and downloaded it. It worked fine, but I noticed that the driver deletes itself every time I reboot the computer. Why is this happening? Because of the way the university originally bought the computer, Gateway tech support cannot assist me and all my computer-expert friends are totally stumped. I would appreciate your help!
      How much, roughly, would it cost for me to replace the board if that happens to be the issue?

      -Note- I took down the first post because there were arguments.

      So I’m almost 14 and I know 13 programming languages, and very much into computers.
      I’ve always gotten support from my family saying that I could do so much from being so young and being experienced. And they hope to inspire me and they did and still are. What is the earliest age to be able to become a computer programmer and developer. First I’d like to let you know mostly about what I know.

      I can build a computer from scratch. As long as I got the parts. I’m obviously not an expert computer builder but I know enough to get it u-Note- I took down the first post because there were arguments.

      I can build a computer out of scratch. (By scratch I mean with all the parts just laying around) I’m not an expert at it, But I can diagnose my computer and then fix it.

      I have to admit that I look like a fool while playing with assembly. But I’ve made an operating system with it. All it did was have some scrolling text but I was rather proud.

      I know Java, Mostly game development with it, 2D/3D but the fact that the framework is based around a lot of values gets annoying and I can only program with it for about an hour or two before having to take a break.

      I know C++, Simple applications. Not much I can do with it since it was one of the first programming languages. (And the most respected) I feel the same way about it as Java.

      Even though a monkey could learn this I’ll still mention it. I know VB.NET Framework, Most of it. I don’t count it in my 13 languages because it spoon-feeds lazy people.

      I know HTML/PHP/JavaScript/CSS/Etc… I’m not that good with web-design. But I do know how to use it..

      I have a poor family so I can’t pay for much of anything. I have a weekly job, it gets me about 25$ a week. And I’m getting a summer job this summer. I heard it’ll make about 700$ and it could support me. So I need to know if there’s a Err… Porgram? To learn more. When I say program I mean like a group or something. I live in the United States. (Indiana). Maybe a community college or something? Well all answers will be appreciated. The main reason I’m asking this now is because there’s not much I can do. I’ve made tons of programs that I know would be worth something. And when I get older and more experienced I certainly know I’d be valuable. But I can’t become experienced with nothing. Thanks 🙂

      The only IT programs offered in my area that I’m interested in are Network Administrator and Support Specialist. Basically I want to be the person who fixes and sets up all the computers in a company/building…I think that’s what a network administrator does, but I don’t know for sure (my college advisors aren’t that bright and I don’t know the technical terms yet…). So from someone who actually has field experience or currently in school, what’s the difference between the two degrees? What are my job limits with each degree? Thanks!

      Hello. Can anyone help? I have a Maxtor 160GB Hard Disk Drive, and my computer is only recognising a 127GB capacity. I have XP with service pack 2 installed, and I downloaded a Big Drive patch from the Maxtor website. According to Microsoft’s knowledge base, the next thing I need to do is update my BIOS to enable 48-bit LBA support. I don’t know if this is possible, as my motherboard is quite old.
      The motherboard is a VIA KT400A. The full details are:
      KT400A-8325-6A6LYJ19C-00, and from researching online, it’s possible that it’s a Jetway V400da, V400db or V400dbl. I have tried the Jetway site for an update, but the site is terrible! I also tried the Magic BIOS utility, but that’s not worked. The BIOS version is 6.00, date 10/06/2003.
      Can anybody advise if this motherboard can have the BIOS updated so that I can resolve the HDD capacity issue?
      I’m not much of a computer expert, so please don’t get too technical, or I’ll be totally lost! Ha Ha!

      I keep getting these messages from my new laptop, they are stop screen messages. Here is an example, they are always different.

      A problem has been detected, and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

      IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

      If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

      Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

      If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restarts your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, an then select safe mose.

      Technical information:

      *** STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000A80028A0F88, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF80001D446DF)

      Cumping physical memory to disk: 100

      Physical memory dump complete,

      Contact your system admin or technical support group for further assistance

      How do I check my driver?
      I only bought this like a month ago and i am still under warranty, Im just afraid that it will make my laptop crash and its good knowing the HP will replace it. I might call HP tomorrow and tell them what you have told me. Thanks!

      I worked for a large bridal store in Colorado (i would like to protect their name) that had commissioned and non commissioned employees. I am not a commissioned employee. One day, a customer came in and immediately wanted to order a wedding gown. I asked her if she had tried it on before with us, and she said yes. She knew the exact style code of the dress as well as where it was located in the store. She knew what size we had in our store as well as the color. She specifed that she tried it on in our store in white, yet wanted to order it in ivory. I did not help her with the gown at all, so I looked for her information in our computer system. The system showed that a particular associate had previously worked with her, but it did not specify which gown was hers. Since the customer insisted that she worked with this associate, I rang the dress up under her.

      A week later, my boss pulled me into her office to ask why I had rung the dress under this consultant instead of myself. I explained the interraction to my boss and asked her specifically, “Should this have been rung under myself? If so, I can submit a commission change form.” She said to me, “No no, don’t worry about it, I was just wondering what was going on with this. We will get it worked out.” Then a week later, she pulls me into her office and teminates my employment because of commission fraud. She said i had wrongfully sold a gown under a commissioned employee who did not help with the gown. I spoke to the original employee, and she verbally told me that she helped that specific client. Unfortunately, the employee no longer works there. Do I actually have a case against this company?

      I am giving a NVidia GTX260 graphics card to my friend because he asked for an improved one, and I am ordering a new computer so that GTX would come from my old PC. After looking around a bit, we found out that the power supply is a ATX 12v 2.3. Its fit on a Dell XPS Studio 435MT. We now know that the motherboard supports that graphics card, but we don’t have a clue if the power box can support it. I know the power supply should be around 500 volts and should include 2 6-pin adaptors, but we don’t know if that power supply provides it. Any help from an expert? Thanks in advance!
