Convert Drive E: fat32 to ntsf first then clone to Drive D:
How can you convert a drive from fat32 to ntsf without reformatting it?
Does the instructions in the link work for you?
So after reading the article, I just uninstalled the programs on the Scorpio drive and reinstalled them on the caviar drive. Lol. Thanks though.
So about 3 days ago, one of the fans in the computer started sounding louder than usual. If I open any programs or do anything really it gets really loud. I think it is coming from the corsair H80 fan. How can I check to see what is going on? Any programs I can download to monitor it?
In addition, my wireless mouse is constantly freezing now. I have the logitech MX1100. The past month or so it has been freezing a lot. I changed the batteries in the mouse but that didn't solve the problem. Any ideas?
The mouse issue seems to have worked itself out. My next issue is regarding Lucid Virtu MVP. I recently updated the bios on my motherboard to the latest available. After I did this I can no longer run the Lucid Virtu MVP software package. It sais that my computer is not set up with the proper video hardware. Obviously this is not the case, but I am wondering what setting was changed that I need to fix for this software to run again. Any ideas?
Its called SMARTFAN, when you open any programs, there's more load on the processor and it generates more heat, so to cool it down fans start spinning faster too.
Speedfan is a program that can be used to monitor fan speeds, although it may not work with your motherboard- no harm in trying it out
I have Speedfan 4.46. But I am not sure what temps are considered good or bad ....
I see there is a newer version out, 4.47. I just grabbed that. Sensors indicate that I am at:
Remote 2: 40C
What temps are they load or at idle. If they're 100% load temps then they're great.
If they're idle, then sorry to tell you but they don't mean anything, it the temperatures at 100% load that matter.
Run Prime95 for half an hour or so, it will load your CPU to 100% and then post the temps for us to see.
If they're 100% load temps then they're great, no need to worry.
Those were all idle temps........... I will try to run prime 95 later today and see what happens.
So I for the life of my can not get the Lucid technologies Virtu MVP program to work. It keeps saying that I don't have the right combination of video cards, but I had the program working a few months ago, and then it just stopped. Any ideas?
Any ideas on how this is supposed to work? I just can't figure out why this refuses to work. I am baffled.
If anyone can help me get Lucid to work again, please let me know. Thanks!
Ackk, I never got Lucid to work again.... grrr.......
So I have recently installed a Seagate 1tb 7200 rpm drive into my Antec 1200 machine. I recently bought a Toshiba 240gb ssd. I have not installed it yet. My goal is to place the Toshiba 240gb ssd into my Haf X system and then take the Intel 320 series 120gb ssd from the Haf X and put it into the Antec 1200 for the boot drive. Any suggestions on how I can make this work easy?
Just an update:
Win 7 pro
Evga 780i mobo
Corsair Dominator ddr2 1600 4gb ram (omg I need more ram)
Pioneer DVD burner
WD 500gb blue 7200 rpm (boot drive)
WD 1tb green 5400 rpm (Multimedia almost full)
Seagate 1tb 7200 rpm (just installed)
Antec 850 PSU
Win 7 pro
Asus P8 Z77 V Pro mobo
Corsair ddr3 1600 16gb ram
Seasonic 760 PSU
Intel 320 ssd 120gb (boot drive)
WD 1tb black 7200 rpm (programs and games)
WD 1tb green 7200 rpm (multimedia)
I finally have them networked correctly thanks to a friend who knew what he is doing..... But now I would like to do some SSD swapping, but I am hesitant because of the whole OS cloning thing..... Any suggestions??
Any thoughts ??
Clone your 120gb to your 240gb as the boot drive for you Haf X.
OS cloning will not affect your network. The only problem I see is getting your 500gb space freed up so you can clone to your 120gb.
I think I have an idea..... I have that new Seagate 1tb 7200 rpm drive installed in the Antec 1200..... I can moves programs from the WD blue 500gb to the 1tb drive thus leaving the OS and basic stuff on the 500gb drive..... But I can't simply just move the programs without them breaking can I?
Do you live close to a Micro Center by any chance? ............If so we are about to put the Fx 8320 on sale for $99 dollars, I think thats a hell of a deal if your interested! You can get urself a decent 990 fx motherboard like the Gigabyte 990 fx ud3- U might need to do a bios update in order to run the cpu but no big deal. I work there so I schouldnt really be telling people whats going on sale but the way I see it why the hell not?
I live not too far from the Microcenter in Westbury NY...... Thing is..... new mobo = new ram = chipset....... More than I can really afford to do right now.... But definitely thanks for the heads up though.....
