Failed To Find A Suitable Display Device

Anytime i try to start a game, such as wow or sims 3 or wc3, it simply won't start, and i get an error message like "failed to find a suitable display device. Exiting program" or "can not find a video card that is supported. " I have the newest drivers, and there are no yellow exclamation-marks in the device manager. I've tried reinstalling my graphics card, but nothing changed.

Can't Find Boot Device - Mbr Is Bad On C

I just added a new slave drive to my old computer yesterday. The drive has xp on it, i just haven't formatted it yet. After i plugged in in using cs i rebooted and for some reason my computer booted from that drive, which is now called e:. My master drive is still there and looks to be fine. I went into bios and changed my boot options and hdd options so that it would boot my c: drive first. Now when it goes to boot the c: drive it gives me an error saying that their is nothing to boot. If i have my cd drive plugged in it tries to boot that but says nothing is there. So anyway, for some reason i think my mbr is bad on my c:. I really don't want to format or anything. What would be the best way to fix this issue? I have the ultimate boot cd, should i just pop in xp and fix the mbr? Last time i had this issue i think i ended up reinstalling xp which was a pain.

Is Kvm Suitable For Gaming ?

I am looking to get a kvm so i can control both my computers. I am not a huge gamer, but i play from time to time and would like to have the ability to do that through the kvm. I have heard that some of them have quirks such as not transmitting more than a single key at a time or lagging considerably. Does anyone have any recommendations for a kvm that would work for gaming? Extra points for a kvm with usb keyboard and mouse ports and audio switching.

Second Display In Dual Display Setup Has Stopped Working

I have a pc with dual monitors. Both monitors worked fine for a year, but one day the second display stopped working, and the second monitor. Itís an intel based system with pci-e ati hd2600 video card with dual dvi out. Monitors are both identical acer 22 inch lcds. The issue is that monitor a shows a proper display, but monitor b is blank and goes into power save mode. If i switch monitor a with monitor b, same result. Hence, both monitors are in working condition. If i swap dvi cable a with dvi cable b, same result. Hence, both dvi cable are in working condition. Iíve tried replacing the video card with a new pci-e card of a different brand. Same result. Hence the video card is not broke. If i only plug one monitor into the video cardís dvi output a, itíll work. If i only plug one monitor into the video cardís dvi output b, itíll work. Hence, both dvi outputs on the video card work, just not at the same time. Issue occurs the same during post, as well as in windows and ubuntu. Itís not a driver issue. Iíve tried updating the drivers. Iím not sure what this could be.

How To Find Router Password?

Answer:- assuming you mean the network encryption key needed to use the network rather than the password needed to log into the router's administration pages, if it isn't on a label on your modem or router, the likeliest place to find it is in those admin pages. Exactly where in those pages varies from brand to brand. If you don't have a router, the following should apply to your modem itself. Basically, to get into the admin pages, do this:

1. On a computer connected to a wired port on your router (wireless access to the admin pages should be turned off as a security risk), enter the router's local ip address in your browser's address window. 2. Poke around, especially under wireless security, until you find the encryption key.copy it down exactly.copy-and-pasting it into a text file (wordpad is generally best because it's on almost all windows machines) is even better, as it can be copy-and-pasted from there into whatever needs it. When you see it, you'll understand why this is a good idea. To find your routers ip address in windows:

4. Click on the start->run button. 5. In the text box, type


And press enter. 6. A black "dos box" will pop up. In it, enter

Ipconfig /all

A bunch of gibberish will fill the box. Next to "default gateway" an ip address will appear. This is your router's ip address.

Where To Find Server Technicians?

I am a recruiter at a staffing agency - and i'm pretty new. Knowing that yahoo! Answers is a pretty valuable resource, i was hoping someone here could help me out in searching to fill a server technician position. I'm looking for people with a+, server+, oem certifications, and blade experience. I've posted a few ads and i've run database searches for resumes but have found few people with the experience i need (the certifications above plus 7 years minimum experience). We need them to work on servers such as dell poweredge rack mount servers and hp proliant rack mount and blade servers. I am particularly looking for people in the delaware area - so if anyone knows of any place these guys meet up online (such as organizations) in that area, it would be very helpful!

Or is there any good resource out there, where a lot of these people could see my ads?

I'm doing my research on this job, but i thought one of you might be able to help me too!

Salvaging A Failed Hdd

I've just had my laptop's hard drive fail on me [37 year mtbf my ***] and while i'm sure i can collect on the warranty from samsung, there's alot of data i'd like to pull from the disk before i have to ship it off. I've heard the most likely culprit is a failed bearing, and cooling it in the freezer can bring it back to life for short periods, so it's currently being chilled. But i'm wondering if anyone might have additional tips for pulling data off the drive. One of the more extreme ideas that's hit me is to run network and power into the freezer and just have the whole laptop live there while i back up my data, but i'd like a second opinion on whether or not this would be a smart move.

Failed Bios Flash

I'm just wondering on what anyone would have to do if they was to flash their motherboard bios and it failed. I've just downloaded the nfm 1. 3b6 modded bios with a 1t fix, i'll be flashing soon enough but want to know what to do before i flash the bios and what to do if i encounter a bad/failed bios flash?


If i need to make a backup - how?
If i need to do particular step-by-step procedures; what are they?
How to tell the bios flash failed? - Boot problems? (Wont run?) - If it runs it's done right, correct?
If the bios flash fails, how would i fix it?

Those are just what sprung to my mind then when i finished downloading the modded bios lol! I've never flashed a bios that went wrongly, and the only bios flashes i've done have been through msi's live update. (I have an msi boot flash disk) which was made when i first updated my bios from the live update procedure though!

As for the moment, i have just recieved my arctic silencer nv5 rev. 2 which will be going on the graphics card when i buy and recieve an xp-90c and some ac5 thermal paste, because soon enough i'm going to start overclocking, but beforehand do a lot of reading up about it .

Ram Failed After Memtest86

As some of you might know i had just updated my pc with p6t deluxe v2, i7 920 & 6gb ddr3 1600 ram. I had tried oc this system last night, but wasn't very successful. I did a memtest 86 v2. 11 and it had failed after a few min. I was able to narrow it down to a single ram stick. Since this build is very different from all other builds i did, i just want to check if i did the memtest correctly. I had bclk set to 133 in bios (standard) and had my ram volts set to 1. 64v as well as c1 disabled. Memtest was standard. I don't have much xp with newegg rma procedures, how exactly will this work? Will they resend me an entire set or just 1 stick?

How To Find What Driver For Ethernet Connection ?

How do i find out what driver i need for my ethernet connection?


If you have windows 7, you can go to start. Then search for "device manager". From there, check to see if there are any yellow triangles. If any are the network card (ethernet/nic) then right-click and hit "update" and tell windows to search online for it. You can also go to your computer manufacturer's site and look up your model as they should have a copy of the original drivers that came with your computer. If this was installed for you and is not original, its a little more complicated, you can try the windows part in the first paragraph but if it doesn't, feel free to msg me and i can explain how to go about it.

Areca 1210 Drive Failed

Let me first start off by saying that i have little experience with raid controllers. I have a good hardware background but don't deal with servers that much. My company has a development server that was setup before i entered. It has an areca 1210 setup in a raid 5 with four 250gb drives. We had drive 2 fail last week - finally got the new drive in today. I figured all i would need to do is replace the drive for it to be rebuilt. I powered down the system and replaced the drive and powered it back on. I checked the status and the drive is shown as "free" but the array is still "degraded". What do i need to do to get drive 2 to rebuild?

I should note that i did have to reboot after the failure and login to the bios to reset the admin password so that i could disable the beeper. The event log showed an attempt at a rebuild and also stated drive 2 as failed.

Seagate Drive Failed And Now Beeps

I have a seagate barracuda 500gb 7200. 10. Have had it for less than 1 year. A few days ago, the drive started making a beep, just once per minute. I first heard this beep when my on board promise controller was looking for the drive. It could not find the drive. So i changed the sata cable, still got the same problem. Then tried to run a seagate diag on it, but since the controller doesn't read the drive i cant. Then tries putting the drive in whilst in windows windows just froze, and didn't come back like usual. I then called sea gate and the man told me the drive needed to be replaced. I was a tad shocked, as i don't hear any clicking or scratching, just that one beep every minute or so. The drive spins up and everything. I had some data on there that i could use. Is there a way to get the data since the drive still spins up and stuff. I cant afford the $2400 seagate wants to charge for the recovery.
