Help me upgrade the video on my Dell Dimension 2400.

Help me upgrade the video on my (PCI-only) Dell Dimension 2400. I'm trying to get a new video card for my Dell Dimension 2400, which has video (64mb Intel) pre-integrated into the motherboard. Now, the kicker is that the Dimension 2400 only has PCI ports. Being not too computer-innards knowledgable, I bought a 256mb PCI-E card that didn't fit into my motherboard at all. Are there any decent PCI video cards out there that can offer good performance in conjunction with plenty of RAM or is it time to get a new computer for doing graphics-intensive work?

$2400 early termination fees from Qwest!!!!

How should I contest the big bad phone company? More inside. I recently terminated service at my business with Qwest and was surprised to receive a $2400 ETF fee. I feel I've been slimed. Original Qwest Centrex 21 contract signed 4/11/05 to conclude 5/31/08 Early termination prorated fees determined by months remaining in contract 8 lines =$395 monthly Qwest choice business prime contract approved by bookkeeper on telephone 5/26/07 without approval from management Early termination fees $300 per line 8 lines = $449 monthly less $65 credit for business prime contract I had previously called to ask about any contracts or ETF’s and was told there were no contracts by a dsl customer service agent. Apparently she only checked for contracts on our dsl account and neglected to check our phone account. When I called back to inquire about the fees I was told that our Centrex plan was being discontinued and they needed to change all

Pick One: $2400 saved over 12 months, or $2400 cash gift up front?

MoneyFilter: I have been paying back a loan and will continue paying back for several more years. A birthday gift in this context, has two options: (a) to permit me to cease making payments for one year ($200/mo) and resume payments 1 year from now and each month of this year being marked as paid (a savings of $200/month for 12 months), or (b) be given the equivalent $2400 cash up front. In that context, would receipt of the up-front gift NOT appropriately knock off a year total from the loan, so that I would have one less year to pay the loan (and resume paying monthly payments on the regular due date without stopping but with the final payment date down the line being a year sooner), or would that be like receiving the gift twice? Even if I were simply given an outright gift of $2400, having no bearing on mortgage payments as context, which would be a better choice? Not having to pay for 1 year out of a loan and still be current when the year is completed, or gett

Help us downsize! Moving from 2400 sq ft to 1200 sq ft and .25 acres to .00000000025 acres.

Help us downsize! Moving from 2400 sq ft to 1200 sq ft and .25 acres to .00000000025 acres. Question says it all. Moving from a house to a condo w/ half the square footage and losing our yard. What'd you do when you had to drastically downsize? I'm going to miss the garden and the dogs won't have room to run (but there is a dog park very near and the wife won't be working). There is also a severe lack of storage. Any tips on using space efficiently are welcomed.

Is there anything that I can do to make my Dell Dimension 2400 run faster?

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that is about 10 years old. It hasn't been started up in five years. I am actually using it right now. Is there anything that I can do with the default Windows XP software that can make it run faster, without downloading anything or buying anything? I figure that there is something that I can do within the computer but I have no idea as to what that is. Big thanks!

CPU Temp i5-2400 and BSOD

I'm getting random blue screens with error:

0x00000101 (0x0000000000000031, 0x0000000000000000, 0xfffff880009ea180, 0x0000000000000001)

It seems to have something to do with the cores not being able to get a process from a different core.

So I updated all the drives and looked through everything i could think of. Something I found said it might be hardware failure, so I thought I would look at core temp. Using SpeedFan it shows 88C, but the bios shows 38C and Core Temp 1.0 shows no higher then 34C for each core. Any idea why SpeedFan would display like that and a cure for my BSOD? Thanks!

Routing multiple WAN subnet on a single interface SonicWall NSA 2400

In my current infrastructure I have the following setup :

ISP LINK 1 (64.30.24.128/26) ----|X3--sonicwall--X0|----LAN (64.30.24.128/26)

X0(LAN) is configured as

  • Mode/IP Assignment: Transparent IP Mode, Splice L3 subnet)
  • Transparent Range : Transparent X0 Range

X3(WAN) is configured as :

  • IP Assignement : Static
  • IP address : 64.30.24.130

64.30.24.129 being the gateway on the provider.

Now, I asked my provider to route a second subnet : 84.32.21.224/27

Their answer :

84.32.21.224/27 is currently routed statically over next hop 64.30.24.130

My question :

How do I add that second subnet to my current setup ? (without downtime if possible)

I'm not a routing/sonicwall expert, and quite frustrated that I cannot use all the IP's i'm paying for.

Thanks
