It sounds like a key is stuck down or, I had a problem one time where the Keyboard on a AT MB, was not plugged in all the way, and it make continous beeps in sync with the memory count.

it depends on what type of processpr you have in it.

TO tell you the truth all of those fans are more than enough, then only good thing I could see about putting another fan on top is. Since hot air rises, it was exhaust it through the top.

no, I understand completely what you are saying I have a bachelor's in computer engineering, but I couldn't think of how to solve this problem

I am trying to access my files on my home computer from my computer whihc uses dial-up, both of the system's have WIndows XP Home on them. I have a DSL connection, so I am always connected, is there a way I can make a network connection once I dial-up to the internet at her house.

Hello, I am trying to write a tee filter in C language, almost like the UNIX utility. But I have no idea where to begin can anybody give me a direction I should start in.

Where would I find that at, because I have the program form working except from inputing how many lines you want to display at a time.

Ok, can you answer me this question how do you strip away the -P part.

could you right a peice of code for me that would do that for me please.

Ok, for a lab I have to write the UNIX more filter in C, but I have got everything done execpt one thing. I only hvae it to where it can read 20 lines at a time. But what I want to do is if argv[1] == -Pxx where xx is the amount of lines you want to display at a time. but I need to use a scanf() and a atoi command I think but I have not idea on how to do that. Here is my code and where it sets the amount of line sto be printed is in bold.


main(int argc, char *argv[])

int line_no = 0;
int i=1;
FILE *fp;
char ch;
int linec;
char line[256];

while ( i < argc )
if ( (fp = fopen(argv,"r")) != NULL )
while(!feof(fp) )
line_no = (++line_no) % 20;
if ( line_no == 0 )
printf("---Press enter for more lines---");
if ( (ch = getchar()) == 'q')

if ( fgets(line, 255, fp) != NULL )  /* not eof on line */
printf("%s", line);


Maybe that memory chip you installed last is not compatible with your motherboard.

Yes I would do the same thing, the DVD burner will also burn regular CD's and also play DVD's, so I would get rid of one of the other two optical drives. OR there is a second option, you can buy one of those enclosures boxes that lets you turn an internal drive into a USB drive. Either way you want to do it.

Does anybody have a source code for the MORE filter used on Linux, because I am curious as to how it works.

I think they are backwards compatible, but do not hold me to that. But if you put a 32-bit card into a 64-bit slot, it will only have a 32-bit Bus.

Well it will have some effect with the bigger HD, since it has to search through my sectors on the platter, but you will see very little difference in performace.

I am trying to make a command line calculator, and I made up a partial code for it, just for adding numbers, I am jsut taking it one step at a time. But I am suppose a number then a space then the math function then a space then the second number. But for some reason I am always getting one for the output. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong with this.

I talked to one of my teacher's at school, he said eh worked for IBM, and he said IBM put password protected Hard drives in the servers to protect against unauthorized access. But he said the password is stored in a EEPROM chip, and those chips can have there memory erased by exposing the inside of the chip to UV lights for about 10 minutes.

If the bios only supports a 137GB HD, then what you can do is partition the HD with one partition as 137GB and the other partition as a 23GB partition. Only do this if your BIOS only supports up to 137GB, otherwise just use one partition.

You may need to flash you BIOS.

Well I have capture device, and a DVD burner, I can all of this for a price.

A hard drive doesn't have a password to use it to my knowledge, it is probaly a CMOS password that keeps you form starting up, but to cure that you can either a.) remove the cmos battery for a couple of minutes to reset the CMOS out or b.) there is a jumper that resets the CMOS on the MB, but I am not exactly sure where it would be located at on your laptop.

Yes, there are those boxes, they are so easy to find, you can find out at wal-mart, but check ebay you could probaly one there for cheap.

I don't have any code for it, he was just wanted me to do some code for him, sense I am out fo work for a couple of weeks, with a broke leg, and have nothing to do, but I still do work for job at home, and don't have the time to do this for him.

Well you think the companies who make the decent liquid cooling system, test these product very heavily, and the chances of something messing up is very low.

You might be able to pull off a dual PS electrically, but cosmetically it wouldn't look too good.

That doesn't sound right to me, I think those temp monitoring systems, will lose their memory when you turn you computer off, but I may be wrong about that.

Most laptops have polarity protection, you probaly just blew a fuse, and that can jsut be replaced. But I am nto exactly sure on where the fuse would be located at.

I had a problem with one of my HD, with what you were saying it was make a series of clicking sounds, well I jsut replace the HD and it worked fine after that.

I got a question one of my friends asked me to make a program that you type in the number 1-27 on the command line, and get the corresponding letter for it. Like if you enter 1 as the arguement you would get an A as an output, and if you type in 2, and get a B for the output and so on.

That would save on your heating bill if it heats up your room. But seriously if it does that, then the PC is running too hot you need to get an antec fan, and a bigger heatsink.
