  • 1. Win7 shows only 3GB usable memory - SOLUTION
    K, I found a solution... weird though... I was using MSCONFIG to make sure windows started with all four cpu cores (i.e. msconfig / Boot / Advanced Options / number of processors). I guess I also selected use max memory option as well. In windows Resource Monitor 1026 MB was set aside for "Hardware Reserved" I unselected the "use max memory" and now Win7 reports the full memory and the Hardware Reserved dropped to zero. :) Hope it helps someone else.

    Enable memory remapping in the BIOS.

  • 3. defrag missing
    after a bad crash, motherboard replacement and Windows re-install, defrag is not working. Error message is as follows: "MMC cannot open the file C:\windows\system32\dfrg.msc. This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. The may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file. " I have already reinstalled Windows. Of all the years of working with computers I have never seen this message.
  • 4. XP Pro 64 NTLDR is missing ....!
    OK guys I've brought this on myself but now am stuck as to what to do. This is the situation. This system was put together for my and all the major drives including the C drive are SCSI. The installer later added a couple of SATA drive for a RAID 0. After this the boot up was always unusual in that it took a couple of minutes to get to a screen where you could elect to access set-up, or hit enter to continue, then a screen saying hit any key to continue. This evening I wanted to clear the two RAID drives and use them elsewhere so I deleted the partition on them and took them out. Now I'm having the problem and of course putting them back in is no help <G> Please how do I get out of the brown stuff. Many thanks Richard PS I'm not that technically brilliant with the finer details of this sort of thing so please can you keep it as simple as possible! --

    Hi switched on my W7 x64 box to ahci (sata), so that the hotplug capabilities came up (throw out hardware, like usb drives, but ) for my stationary harddrives is there a way to disable that for these to avoid the notifikation and accidentally throwing out of the drives ? jk

Cant get onboard Gigabit NIC to work in XP64

Postby Kevin J. Nielsen » Tue, 28 Nov 2006 04:01:13 GMT

I have an ASUS k8v motherboard with an AMD 64 3200+ 2GHz processor with 1.5 
GB ram.   The motherboard has an onboard network adapter (3com Gigabit 
3c940)  and I cannot install the drivers for it, nothing is accepted.  I 
have downloaded all kinds of drivers for my NIC that claim to work with XP64 
but nothing works.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get my NIC to work in XP64?

I would sincerely appreciate any help anyone can give me with this matter.


Thank You

Kevin Nielsen

Thank You Tony.  I will look for a driver called IA64 (Itanium).  My NIC is 
enabled otherwise I wouldnt be able to communicate with you now; I have a 
dual boot with XP home and XP64.  My NIC works fine in XP home.

Not much can really go wrong. The chip may be faulty - it isn't enabled in
the BIOS - and your driver is IA64 (Itanium), and not AMD64.

Note, that even if you did enable the function in the BIOS, a system crash
and re-boot may reset the BIOS to it's default. You may need to check every
time this happens!

Oh, no! You misunderstand. I was suggesting, if the driver you installed was
for 64bit Itanium -that would not work! Sorry!

O.K. If it works, there really isn't much else, except the driver that I can
think about - make sure the driver you install is for AMD64 platform, and XP
x64 has a Firewall which 'Home' doesn't. You may have to check that - and do
note that network parts of same make and number can have different chips -
make sure you get the proper driver. This may be tricky information to
uncover if you don't have the original manual.

Please share how you derrived that the driver was for IA64 and not X64 ? I 
am unable to discern how you could determine this based on the information 
provided by the OP.

I couldn't - I was recounting the most reasonable things to be the possible
fault - Itanium drivers have trapped a few, here.

Heck, I don't even know if any such thing exist for the product in question,
just naming a few things that would be worth checking in this situation.

I'm running the A7V board with the same processor but my onboard NIC is a 
Marvel Yukon Gigabit, XP x64 had a native driver and Asus offers a 64bit 
driver on their site, however I see that the same isn't true of the3com on 
the K8V, it may be prudent to contact either Asus or 3com about this 
product, although even a search at driversguide.com produced no 64bit 
version of the driver for this NIC, perhaps this one will work: 
 http://www.**--****.com/ 
it lists Win All but that's not necessarily 64bit I've found.

Apparently the 3c940/3c2000 drivers and the Yukon are 
exactly the same.

You can find 3Com drivers at: 
ftp://ftp.3com.com/pub/nic/3c2000-t/

And Yukon drivers at:  http://www.**--****.com/ 

In both instance the files are labeled as: yk51x64

Thank You for your time Dshai.  I will try those drivers and let you know if 
they work.

I tried the drivers from the 3com link and they wouldnt work.  I couldnt 
find any drivers at the marvell link, Maybe I wasnt typing in the correct 
search criteria.

Thanks Anyway

he Marvel Yukon drivers may be on hold. My board has both the nVidia and
MY NIC's and it was the MY that worked up through RC2 but with rtm Vista
installed the nVidia driver and not the MY. An MY driver may be available
through Microsoft Update by the time of Launch.

ou don't have to fill in all the options. If you just
select Win XP x64 in the bottom slot, you'll get all the
drivers for Win XP x64. If you want Vista x64, then select
Vista x64.

evin:
The latest MY driver is "Yukon Windows x64 Win XP & Server 2003
Driver Win XP x64, Server 2003 x64 11/2/06 8.61.2.3". Start at
http://marvell.com/products/pcconn/yukon/index.jsp, click download drivers
in the right column, use Yukon and Win XP x64 for key words. Also there are
Vista drivers available using Vista x64 instead of Win XP x64.

hank you for that. I was able to download the yukon drivers but
unfortunately they didnt work.

The strange thing is that I received a post from another newsgroup from a
person who has the same motherboard as me. She was able to get her onboard
nic to work with the drivers that she gave me the link to. I tried those
drivers and they didnt work either. I am starting to think that I am
missing something, like maybe some drivers for my motherboard that will
allow the nic to be detected. I did find an ACPI driver on the ASUS site
for Win64 but I dont know how to install it or what it is. Could it be
that I need to install the ACPI driver before I can Install my nic?

Thank You

hank You Colin. I guess I didnt need it because I already have a Windows
provided ACPI driver.

1.Netgear Gigabit NIC won't work right

I'm running a mostly-XP LAN, with a number of machines connected together 
through a gigabit switch.  Everything runs fine, including my new Sony Vaio 
SZ440.  However, the Vaio only works at 100 mbps and if I use the built-in 
NIC (and I have the "slow copy across network" problem, though it sees all 
my machines and can access their file systems).

I have a couple of Netgear GA511 gigabit NIC cards.  One is running in a 
Toshiba Satellite (an XP machine) and it works fine.  I tried the other in 
an older Vaio (a V505ax), also an XP machine, and it works fine as well.

However, neither card works correctly with the new machine under Vista. 
Vista completes the install, device manager shows that it's working 
correctly, and I can ping everything on the LAN, including my ISP's DNS 
server.  However, neither Explorer, FireFox or any other software can access 
the internet, and status reports that the NIC is running at only 10 mbps 
(that's not a typo).  I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the NIC, 
even re-installed Vista from scratch, but that didn't help.  I've adjusted 
the advanced settings for the card, forcing both link and NIC speed to 1 
gigabit (and in various combinations), but that doesn't work either.  I've 
tried disabling IPv6, but that makes no difference, either.

I've run out of ideas, and would welcome any suggestions.

works fine, no problems with my NIC.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get my NIC to work in XP64?
