Connect Two Monitors To Computer

How to connect two monitors to a computer? I bought a ati video card and a new monitor. I connected my main monitor to the ati video card, and the second monitor to the crappy on-board video card monitor slot. The computer doesn't recognize the 2nd monitor which is connected to the crappy on-board video card monitor slot. What am i supposed to do? Am i not allowed to use that crappy on-board monitor plug? If so do i just buy something that lets me connect two monitors?

Computer Randomly Reboots - Monitors Blackout

My computer randomly reboots once or twice a day. Sometimes twice in a row and that is that, but i noticed something strange that it only happens when i am browsing the web regardless of the browser that i am using. Now this could be complete coincidence, but it never happens when i am gaming as of yet. I also ran prime 95 and stressed tested my system for a solid hour with no reboots at all. I have left my system on for days and my system temps were all completely normal until while browsing the web for a few hours after clicking a link; bam reboot. I also went into system properties in my computer and turned off "automatically restart" just to see if there could be a blue screen, but nope. My monitors black out as if somebody other than myself went and hit the reset button on my case. It reports no other error, but that. I just reformatted and hopefully i will be stable, but i doubt it. Worries me that it only happens when i am browsing the web. Any advice or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Pass Internet Connection Through Computer That Is Off

Is it possible to pass an internet connection through a computer that is off? My family bought a spiffy new tv that has internet capabilities (netflix, youtube). I want to connect a computer to the tv as well, to view additional sites. We have a router and use wired internet. The router/modem are in the bedroom. Instead of running two long network cables out to the living room, can i just connect one to the pc, then from the pc to the tv?

No Signal On Vga Tv To Computer Connection

I have been watching my computer screen on tv for two weeks, then all of a sudden it says no signal. We changed the cable back to monitor and the screen was fine, (i disabled my screen-saver so its not that). So when i change back to the vga, it works on tv again for a while then pops up no signal, and we have to go through the process of swapping cables again before it will work. How do i prevent this please?

Error - The Computer Currently Has Limited Connection

I recently purchased a new acer laptop at futureshop, i went home, tried to connect to my wifi (yes password is correct) and it came up with the following: windows was unable to connect to _. So i pretty much forgot about it and just manually plugged my laptop into the modem. And i recently brought my laptop to a friends place and tried to connect to his wifi, and it came up with the same thing.

Computer Qualification To Open Up Computer Shop

I plan to open up my own computer shop when i leave school (this is my final year. ), And of course, after i get a job in town, to save some money. I would be the "normal" pc shop owner, fix computer hardware/software problems, install hardware, format hard drives, and of course sell computers, computer hardware, and computer software. I am wondering what sort of qualifications i need. I am from new zealand, so i probably won't be aware of certain degrees. I already have qualifications in small business and retail, through a polytechnic, so i am just after what computer qualification would be best. Do you suggest a bachelor degree such as a bachelor of computer engineering, bachelor of information technology, or maybe just a certificate in computer engineering, or something else?!

Connecting Computer To Another Computer To Share Internet

How can i connect my computer to other computer to share internet? Well here is the problem, computer 1 has internet which is a wireless internet that is used by a wireless usb adapter which connects to one of my networks. But computer 2 had a virus so i restored it and now it only has "local connections" and not "wireless connections" in control panel under "network connections" and so computer 2 has no internet on it because i can't connect to anything without having "wireless connections" there. So what i was thinking is using a ethernet cable to connect computer 1 to computer 2 and they can share the internet and they both can have it. So i connected the ethernet cable to both computers and now what do i do? Under local connections on computer 2 it says "unplugged" and i'm confused! How can i make it so both computers have internet and none of them connects to a router through wires? I know there is a way, computer one has fully working internet because it has "wireless connections" in "network connections". All i have to do is plug in my adapter and then connect to my network. If it helps to know, the computers are both windows xp. Are you suppose to configure something now that the cord has them both connected to each other? How do i make it so the internet from computer 1 which is wireless internet, connect to computer 2 using a ethernet cable, make both have internet by sharing computer 1 internet! Idk if u guys get it? Like computer 1 is connected to computer 2 through a ethernet cable, i want computer 2 to have internet aswell, is there a way that the internet can be shared like that from computer 1? Please help me and with good instructions! This is my very first time doing this, and i need internet on my other computer, this is my only chance left!

How To Hack Someones Computer From Your Computer ?

Now i know this is usually against forum rules, but the reason i'm asking this is to test and see if my firewall's working. I don't think that would be against forum rules, would it? Basically i want to know if there's anyone on here that i know fairly well who knows how to do it, that i can pm my ip addy to, and then they can try to hack into my computer, and if they succeed they'll just leave a folder on my desktop that has a textfile that says "you've been hacked" or something along those lines, then advise me on the forum on how to improve my security.

Issue With Dhcp Connection Wireless Connection Drop

I don't know why i keep getting this error message in the log for dhcp , it annoys a lot as it disconnects the wifi then reconnects and continues to do so for a few minutes. The ip address lease 192. 168. 1. 7 for the network card with network address 0xxxxxxxxxxxxx has been denied by the dhcp server 0. 0. 0. 0 (the dhcp server sent a dhcpnack message). I know there is an issue as the dhcp server should be 192. 168. 1. 1, it goes normal as in the log it shows that it gets the i. P from the correct dhcp but when the error happens it shows the dhcp server as to 0. 0. 0. 0. My wireless card is an atheros ar9285, my pc is a hp pavillion dv 7-3162nr laptop

What Do You Do With An Old Computer ?

So what do guys do with your old computers? I used to go and give them to members of my family, but now everyone's got one. Parts i've kept in a box, but i'm not sure what to do with a working system. Junk, scrap, or throw in the garage? Or do guys go for a mad mod project?

Right now it just sits in a corner, waiting to be scrapped for parts, but i'd like to put it to good use if i could. The culprit in question is a 466 celeron with a 6 and 2 gig hd and 64 megs of ram.

I7 Computer

1) what will you be doing with this pc? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? Etc
Mostly gaming, some minor photoshop/media perhaps. 2) what's your budget? Are tax and shipping included?
I suppose under $1500

3) where do you live?

4) what exact parts do you need for that budget? Cpu, ram, case, etc. Please be very specific. Everything, building a new comp. 5) if reusing any parts, what parts will you be reusing? Please be especially specific about the power supply. List make and model. Using a 52" sony bravia 1080p tv that we already have sometimes. 6) will you be overclocking?

7) what size monitor do you have and/or plan to have?
It should be either 21. 5" widescreen, i might use a 17" for dual if i can figure it out, and sometimes a 52" tv. 8) when do you plan on building/buying the pc?
Beginning of summmer - june 12 ish

9) what features do you need in a motherboard? Raid? Firewire? Crossfire or sli support? Etc. Sli, enough space between the processor socket and memory modules so that the cpu heatsink doesn't eat my memory cards!

10) do you already have a legit and reusable/transferable os key/license?
I have an xp install, intend on buying vista 64 bit so i can use 6gb. I'm thinking of making this pc. http://secure.

Using Your Computer As A Tv

The next comp i'm gonna build is for my boys' room. I want to be able to use it as their tv as well to save space. We have cable, and therefore have a cable box. If i install a tv tuner card in my computer, do i just run the cable from the box to the card as i would to the old tv? Do i still change the channel through the box? Does the card just basically route the signal to the monitor?

Computer Not Getting Right Ip

I was using the net on my computer one morning, that night it didn't work anymore! There is no longer a light on the port where i am connected to the router, but the link light is on. I am using my other computer to write this message. Both are connected to the same router, but only the other one is stuffed. The dhcp is now automatically set to 196. X. X. X. X. I have tryed ipconfig /release and /renew but both don't work. I have installed and run even though i am running windows xp pro, nothing happened. I have reinstalled windows, nothing. Any help in this matter would be terrific.

Fly In The Computer

I heard some weird buzzing noise and then i saw the little fly ontop of my video card. How he managed to brave the gauntlet of cables, packplates and fans is a mystery to me but he's definately not leaving anytime soon. I could try to blast him into my cooler with a jet of compressed air but the sucker is fast. Would there be any harm if a dead fly lands on the mobo or something?
