Howdy folks, I haven't been here in a long time. I came in because of a school assignment I'm working on, I need a couple of sites that I feel exhibit exemplary design features.

Lately I've gotten a couple machines that both have the same issue. No video whatsoever. Both are relatively old micro atx (probably three to five years, celeron). One, an HP and the other a Compaq. Neither will boot with any video signal at all. I've checked power supplies, connections, reseated ra...

Okay here's the problem: I've installed a new Netgear FVS318v3 wired business router for a client who had a Linksys residential router in place. The reason for doing this is because they wanted to have some control (keyword and url blocking) to slow down some of the unauthorized internet use. They a...

Look up their warranty service centers and call one of them. Explain the problem and maybe you'll get someone helpful who will look up the code for you. (Maybe).

The flashing sequence is binary which is telling you a fault code. The problem is having the info to decipher it. You'll need a repair manual which the warranty service people have access to.

IRQ less than 0 is definately a hardware failure happening. Try testing memory first, then hard drive then its pretty much going to be a motherboard issue in my experience.

I stopped using that paste crap a long time ago. It's nothing but a mess waiting to happen. Google for frag tape and buy that instead. Easy to put on and take off and can be left in place long term or removed when you need to.

I'll stick by my guns when it comes to side panel fans in a well made case. I ran an Athlon XP box for two years that barely broke 100 F. no matter what.

Heat rises (we all know that already but apply it to computer cases). Most newer cases are going to have an inlet space at the bottom of the front cover to let air in. A good case is going to have a front fan mount about where your hard drive sits in its bay so having a fan there blowing towards the...

You'll end up replacing the motherboard if the charge socket broke off the circuit board IMHO. Most likely it took some of the board insulator material with it and you wont be able to solder a short-proof connection. Circuit boards are repairable, but a new m/b will probably cost much less.

Post Posted: December 23rd, 2004, 6:14 pm

If you are moving to a machine with the same or a similar motherboard and or chipset, you may be able to get away with it. If not you'll likely get all kinds of conflicts and XP may not even start.

A good thing to look for in heatsink / fan combos for Socket A processors is find the ones with as much copper in them as you can afford. Copper is the best route for heat to dissipate through.

To put in my two cents, Ive used newegg for parts for some time now.

hhmm. I dont know about that. Ive always gone 51 into chippewa and got on 60. If youre going to boardman you could always just go the turnpike to 680. I moved away from this area for about 20 years, so I dont know the back ways as well. I do know routes 165 and 170.

Post Posted: March 8th, 2004, 3:15 pm

From reading all five pages, Id plug the power supply into a tester first, eliminate that, then test and/or replace the memory. Generally (but not always) constant restarts lead to a hardware failure, especially with older machines.

I dont believe this, somehow between this morning and now, the cache of my website on google has reverted back to what it originally was. Within 12 hours I went from where I wanted to be right back to where I started. This sucks. :evil:

Post Posted: March 6th, 2004, 6:51 pm

I don't know what all that means, but Ive gotten right where I wanted to be in google results just by using the exact keywords I need. I just am hoping people whom I want to attract are typing what I think they are typing to find the service Im offering. :wink:

Post Posted: March 5th, 2004, 6:50 pm

LOL. I meant youre obviously a young person, youve done a very good job on getting your site listed highly on google, with probably a lot less effort than it took an old guy like me, who is doing the same thing with my website.

thats very good.congrats to you.Im older so it took me awhile :)

Post Posted: March 5th, 2004, 4:11 pm

Does the way you position the keywords in the meta tag make a difference? ie. should I put repair, sales, service together or could they be anywhere in the list? Also, is it necessary to seperate each keyword with commas?

Post Posted: March 5th, 2004, 4:02 pm

Yep thats the one. got onto jayde too. Hey things are looking up today, google revisited my site and got my new keywords. so now Im cruising up where I want to be for my search terms. I just need to put some effort into refining the keywords.

Post Posted: March 4th, 2004, 8:02 pm

I believe you. Im not paying for another one. enginemage.com has shown me a few things about what my competitor who has himself listed so well is doing. hes got tons of other sites linking back to him. so Im working on that.

Post Posted: March 4th, 2004, 7:25 pm

Does it ever end? Now I found another submission site for Aeiwi. And this one wants all keywords seperated by a comma or it wont accept the url. :shock: it would be nice if there was some kind of standards.

lol. well, then it shouldnt be a problem. the more I read and find out about getting results on google the more Im updating. like 2 or 3 times a day Id say. so it should have detected my changes by now I would think.

Post Posted: February 28th, 2004, 1:01 pm

Thats where Id like to reach, having google update every few days. at present, its been a week since it originally picked up my url. and Ive added better keywords, title and description meta tags, as well as moved to a completely different look to the site.

Post Posted: February 28th, 2004, 10:49 am

google has my site, and also a site Im on that links to mine. and vice versa.

Post Posted: February 28th, 2004, 10:47 am

I used a submission service and submitted to their list of sites, which includes google, inktomi, and yahoo. and waited a week before resubmitting.

Post Posted: February 28th, 2004, 7:36 am

Howdy All,
I submitted on 2/21 and again today. since I've made changes to be more search engine friendly. whats the frequency that will be considered spamming?
