The other thing we didn't bring up is the modem. Did you check with Comcast if it is approved for 100mbps? I couldn't find any info on an arris t882 modem.

Ok. I went back and reread the posts.
If both the desktop and laptop were using wired connections and only getting 42mbps, then it could just be old hardware. Fast Ethernet (100mbps) should have...

Hmm. I was under the impression that his desktop was the wired one, not the laptop. If the wired connection on the laptop is getting 42, then I'd agree.
Still, it won't hurt to have an 802.11n...

42 is what is he getting now. His max connection is 100mbps (theoretical). He wanted to get closer to 100.
The only way to get closer to 100mbps would be to upgrade the hardware. Whether it is...

Charter does list 802.11n as a requirement for "Ultra 100" speeds.
October 7th, 2014, 08:26 PM
The Inspiron 1501 only has 802.11g, so it won't be able to hit 100mbps on a wireless connection. It does have a 10/100 fast ethernet wired connection, though.
If you want 802.11n speeds, you'd...

Wow. That's pretty cheap. n300 is an entry level 802.11n router, but it should do.
Note that you also need 802.11n wireless network cards on your PCs. If you have an 802.11n router but only...

802.11n and ac are WIRELESS standards.
The FD5-7324-4 has 10/100 wired ports, so that shouldn't bottleneck your connection.
October 3rd, 2014, 06:02 PM
For the router, do you mean a FD5-7324? If so, that that's only a 802.11g router. You need an 802.11n or 802.11ac router to get higher speeds. 802.11g is limited to a theoretical 54mbps, which...

I doubt it would be your system. Even s775 MBs had gigabit ethernet.
What make/model modem and router do you have?

In theory, the wifi router should work.
Are you sure they don't have a wired router already?
September 18th, 2014, 03:09 PM
And you're sure that's the correct MB model #? Did it come out of an OEM system?
They don't usually add features, so a BIOS update probably wouldn't help anyway.

You'll still need to burn a boot CD, but this about the best I think you can do:

If it's on the Windows boot screen, then it has already passed the other boot devices.
Did you look in Event Viewer for errors? There could be hanging services that are holding up the boot process.

How do you know the SSD is the problem?
Check if the OCZ SSD Toolbox has diags.

You would need to know the actual location of the folder in the Library.
Did you try using the Windows 7 search? Do you know the names of the documents or at least the file type?
If that doesn't...

Libraries are not actual folders. It's a compilation of folders into one location.

Can't you download Treesizefree on another computer and copy it to the flash drive?
July 13th, 2014, 06:36 AM
Did you try download directly to a flash drive?
I wouldn't uninstall Kaspersky.
XP should be able to unzip the file. Then you just run TreeSizeFree.exe. Choose Scan, then Local Disk C:. You...
July 12th, 2014, 05:16 PM
Did you run TreeSizeFree like i mentioned earlier?
You can download the zipped version, extract it, and run it from a flash drive. You need to find out what is taking up the space. Then you can...

It sounds like you might have a virus or malware. When was the last time you scanned your drive? What AV and antimalware are you running?
Is there any data you can temporarily move off to an...
June 25th, 2014, 08:09 PM
186GB full? I'm guessing you have your OS and DATA on the same drive. WinXP doesn't use that much space.
You should try something like TreeSize free to see what is using up the disk space....

You still didn't say how big your drive is.
Do you use hibernation? If not, you can get rid of the hiberfil.sys file.
How much ram does your system have? How big is your pagefile?
June 24th, 2014, 06:45 PM
If you're on XP, you should consider getting a newer system. XP is no longer being updated and supported.
How big is your drive and how much space is left?
Did you run any cleaner tools like...
