The Front usb port(s) are NOT connected!!!!


Isurmise this could be a power supply problem or bad caps somewhere .

:D PDT_Armataz_01_26 Encoding operations like this will usually use 100% CPU. What this means is that the encoding is filling every spare CPU clock cycle with an instruction. In reality it is only activating a few areas of the CPU at any one time and is not literally 100% of the CPUs transistors all...

Re: Fedora Linux -OLD ver.!!!! Fedora8 !!!!!

Just how much "extra" can be gotten out of that old motherboard? Check what FSB speed is at hand, if 400/533 then a bit limited. But if 533/800, then maybe a better CPU model. A lot of older boards might not accept a Prescott version, but a Northwood is better than a Celeron. The more L2 cache on t...
