From Stardock's newsletter I read "Handles are killing your PC" and checked in on the apps and handles to discover the stock Killer Network app was way out there at over 906,000 (906 THOUSAND) handles. This was a pretty interesting find and had me off to the maker for latest suite and drivers. Result? The 906,000 number dropped to 900 handles or a thousand fold less. Here's the full text of the message and link. "Handles are killing your PC The handle issue is a pretty big deal, and you may never have even heard of them. Let's fix that. …

This may seem absurd at first but please read on. Recently I've heard that a lot of people are installing Mac on standard machines made for Windows - either using hardware Virtualization or using some kind of tweak with their BIOS. I also heard that Apple recently switched their working Archetecture to Intel processor making it easy to install their OS X on Windows machines. Earlier last month a friend of mine also tried installing OS X on his Windows machine. No, he did not use VMWare or any emulator, he actually installed in on his HDD with a bootloader …

Lenovo Y480, Win 8.1. Last month a Malware Bytes update started cannibalizing my system, quarantining over 600 driver files, .dlls and assorted stuff. (Earlier part of that story [here](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/threads/481460/mbam-blocked-and-cant-scan-cant-upate-cant-install-it-again#). I tried to undo everything, and in the process uninstalled MBAM, thereby deleting the quarantined files. My system is full of holes, and won't do odd things, like recognise external USB hard drives or thumb drives. There are no system restore points prior to the problem. This is a problem for me, because my laptop came without a system restore disc. I took the precaution of making a system restore image …

Recently we made some changes here in our office and as a result I ended up with an old IBM laser printer (model 4019). But I'm also running Windows 7 and, on the surface, it appears that Windows 7 does not have a driver for my old IBM -- and here's why. By default, Windows 7 (and likely Vista as well, but not sure on this) does not load all available printer drivers just some of the most popular ones from the more well known companies -- Epson, HP, Xerox, etc. So, as a result, when you first see the …

Very recently, I let my laptop (HP) battery get too low, and it died on me. Usually, upon plugging in the adaptor, everything starts right back up again. However, this time, the laptop runs, but all I can see is a black screen. I can even hear the little chime when windows starts (vista), but all I can see is black. I don't think it's a backlight issue, as I the black screen still emits a sort of "glow". I know I need a new battery, but as long as it's plugged into the power supply, shouldn't it work fine? …

I am trying to figure out what it would take to create software like [MaxiVista](http://www.maxivista.com/) or [ScreenRecycler](http://screenrecycler.com/ScreenRecycler.html). I have good experience with Java and C++, but these two programs are just awesome and over my head. Basically, they take a window from one computer and transfer it to another. Does anyone know how these are done? * How would I grab the window image data from the device? Do you overload the graphics drivers? Is there a way to capture a window directly? * How do I make the os think that there's another monitor? * Are there any caveats …

I'm curious because I'm new to the world of buying computer parts and such. I've installed an Asus model of the Nvidia 550ti and I was wondering if I should use the Nvidia drivers or the Asus drivers. both drivers seem to work with only slight differences in the multiple monitors settings. Any recommendations or advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, Ever since I upgraded from Tiger to Snow Leopard, I cannot print in color. It will print but only in black and white. I use a Dell 5100cn color laser printer. I have contacted Dell and of course there is no known time frame for a release of a driver. I hate to dump it and buy a new printer since I still have 4 full toners left! Any suggestions? Thanks!

So I'm starting up a render farm for UDK and After Effects, and I have about 8 computers at the moment. One of them is a Dell Dimension 2350, and I cannot get the Ethernet to work on it. I've installed this driver: [url]http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/kcs/document?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&docid=DSN_D4A6B1A87E7D2BBBE030A68F27285798&isLegacy=true[/url] Didn't work. I've installed this one: [url]http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R56237&SystemID=DIM_PNT_CEL_2350&servicetag=&os=WW1&osl=en&deviceid=4316&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=1&catid=5&impid=-1&formatcnt=0&libid=5&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&source=-1&fileid=66981[/url] And that didn't work aswell, they are both listed as being for the Dimensions 2350.

I bought an Nvidia 6200. It came with drivers on a disk, but I have win7, and it only supported Vista and XP, so I went on the site, and downloaded new ones that work on win7, but they won't install unless the card is in. I install the card, and I have graphics until Windows starts. Then I have nothing. I need the drivers to get the picture, but I need the picture to install the drivers? What do I do?
