Is there a way to prepare 80GB HDD (SATA) in such way, that it boots from ISO on itself? I'm delivering this to an old grandpa who doesn't know a lot about software (he's electrical genius though). I will create steps on how to get through installation. But I need to get this HDD to him (it's too late to buy CD/DVD and I have only my own USB). I want him to start computer, put this HDD in, restart computer, get through installation and use ye oldie Windows XP x86. **How do I do that? :)** I will leave …

Recently upgraded from Windows XP Business Edition to Windows 7. Unfortunately, some of my old programs don't run on Windows 7. If I install Windows XP on my new computer, is it going to totally mess things up ???? Isn't it amazing companies always claim new and improved but then expect consumers to spend, spend, spend and fill the landfill with old programs that can't work with new programs !!!!!!! We seem to have become a world full of selfish people that has no respect for people, things or this planet. Sorry, don't mean to get on a soap box …

Hi all. I'd like to ask for a way to store a MySQL table content of type VARCHAR to a CHAR variable in C. The MySQL table has three columns: ID (int), Name (varchar(22)), Salary (int). My C program should ask the user to input an ID number, and depending on the input value, the program should look up in the table whose Name it belongs to, then store that name on a variable of type CHAR. I tried doing it but an error that says "Incompatible variable types" is returned when I compile the program. The function of my …

Hi everyone! I recently created a MySQL table that has three columns: (1) integer ID (2) integer num1 (3) integer num2 Now, I have a C program that waits for the user to input an integer ID and when there is an input, the corresponding num1 and num2 in the 2nd and 3rd columns in the table will be retrieved. However, it only assumes that the input is in the table. I don't know yet how to include an error checking part in the code that will determine whether the inputted value is contained in the table or not. If …

Hello all. I'm trying to compile a socket program in DevC++ but everytime I do it I get a lot of linker errors like these: [CODE] [Linker error] undefined reference to `WSAStartup@8' [Linker error] undefined reference to `htons@4' [Linker error] undefined reference to `inet_pton' [Linker error] undefined reference to `socket@12' [/CODE] I have previously run the socket program successfully in Linux but I have to export it to WindowsXP, and I must admit I'm relatively new to programming in WindowsXP.

While connected to a public wireless network at a hotel, my laptop lost its ability to browse websites via HTTP. The problem persisted when I returned home using my private wireless network. However, I noticed I can browse sites via HTTPS and FTP. I can even ping external websites in Command Prompt. (For example, using the command “ping google.com”, I receive IP address replies.) Windows appears to be downloading regular updates as well. This could be a setting I have unknowingly disabled. Unsuccessful attempts to resolve the issue include: --Sweeping my system for malware with Trend Micro and Malwarebytes’; --Connecting …

I sure hope you can help me. I have reached the end of my tech expertise. I am having trouble connecting to the internet on my main computer (Dell XPS 400 running Windows XP and a Westell 6100 modem); I can get online through the wireless lan on my laptop which is connected via wireless Netgear Rangemax router. I finally removed a virus/malware that McAfee didn't stop (Microsoft Security Alert phony), so thought I did. In the process of removing it (thanks to Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware), files were removed and/or quarantined; those files apparently contained information that allowed the coputer to …

Hi guys, I've searched my @ss off for a solution but not even google has something on this. (two or three useless pages) One of our customers rebooted their machine and all of a sudden their usernames at the logon screen is gone, and instead there is three new ones named, HDSADMIN, HDSUSER and SMSINSTALL. Now just to be clear, it was NOT a previously owned machine and they have absolutely nothing to do with some company called HDS or anything. Their system worked fine for years and now all of a sudden this popped up. Below is what i've …

I have Windows XP Home Edition, Version 2002, which I run on eMachines version T2875. I also seem to have contracted a virus that uses Microsoft Internet Explorer to send pop-ups whenever I'm using Firefox, which is my main web browser. Yesterday, I noticed the virus for the first time, and ran AVG Free and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. AVG only managed to catch one infection, which was quarantined. MBAM caught 12 infections, and all were removed after rebooting ... or so I thought. The virus comes up in my task manager processes as iexplore.exe. Every time it comes up, I end …

I am not able to increase it to any higher resolution. Every thing in the computer appears really big! Is there any way I can make this proper?
