  1. I don't care about that. It's business equipment to support legacy hardware. But thanks. That is strange... I have XP running on several machines and they all still work.
  2. I have a Windows XP machine that suffered some disk corruption and some files got zapped. I runs, but freezes under load. Windows XP isn't forthcoming on what files are causing the problem. SFC reports clean. Can I re-install Windows XP on top of what is already there to "restore" those OS files not checked by SFC?
  3. I'm trying to use NTLite (v so I can add some drivers to a Windows install iso. The tool keep saying, invalid Windows image path. The error box says to mount the iso and copy the Windows files to a folder. I did that, and the tool gives the error. Obviously missing a step here.
  4. This is actually a brand new machine from Origin. I'll check with them to see what they did.
  5. Thanks. There doesn't appear to be an update with MSI. I do have the Support Assistant info, but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger on the Intel version. I need to get the SN off the motherboard before I can ask MSI directly, if a fix is coming. I'd prefer to get it there. But you have assured me that I am following the best course for right now.
  6. I understand that, I'm referring to the "permanency" of a rollback vs.an uninstall. At this point, I'm assuming it makes little difference. Having said that, I wonder... Windows has not re-installed the "bad driver", as it did when I used the uninstall method. So I'm wondering if Windows is more hesitant to update a driver that was intentionally rolled back by the user.
  7. I had driver problem recently (Win 10 Home). My first correction was to uninstall the driver and check the option to delete the driver files. I restarted, and everything worked fine. The bad driver later re-installed itself. The second time, I tried a "rollback". So far, the driver remains and the problem has not resurfaced. Is there something more "permanent" about a rollback vs. the uninstall and delete option? I'm hoping the rollback will "stick" until I can manually install a patch from the manufacturer.
  8. I recently had a connection problem with my Intel(R) Ethernet Controller I225-V driver. Apparently, it is a known problem. Going down the technical information rabbit hole, I am left unsure if it has been patched and if it is, from whom I should get the fix. From something Intel puts out, or wait for MSI to release something. It's a MSI Z590-A PRO motherboard in a brand new Origin pre-build.
  9. I have an ASUS Prime Z270-P motherboard with an Intel I5. Considering the possibility of attempting putting an Intel® Core™ i7 3930K Processor I7 chip onto the board. Thought it best to ask here first about compatibility, before taking everything apart. The manufacturer CPU compatibility list doesn't specifically list it.
  10. I just bought an Insignia NS-PCHDEDS19 Dual Hard Drive Docking Station. Does anyone know if it's drives are hot-swappable, or do you have to turn the unit off before inserting and removing drives? I assume you have to turn it off first.
  11. Likely cost was a factor, as well as mechanical limitations of the time. I would suspect they could only move celluloid so fast, before things start to fly apart {inertia/stress}. LOL Anyway, the pervious comments were correct in that I was curious about the human limitation, not the tech. I have seen the LTT video with the e-sports gamers playing on hi rate monitors. It convinced me that there is a benefit at least up to 240. Perhaps they will do it again with faster monitors, when practical. Thanks for all the replies. You folks are the best. Lot of stuff to unpack here.
  12. With the posting of future availability of 480 frequency monitors, I tried to look up how many frames/sec the human brain can process before there is literally, no perceivable difference. I was curious, but couldn't find it. I'm not intending to bash any tech as a wasted effort, but there has got to be a human limit here. I was wondering what that actually is. Hmmm....
