      1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
      2. Locate and then click the Default value under the following keys in the registry if this problem occurs with folders:
      HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
      If this problem occurs with drives:
      HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
      3. Click Modify on the Edit menu.
      4. Type none in the Value data box, and then click OK.
      5. Quit Registry Editor.

      OR

      Type the following at the command prompt:

      regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

      That’s it!!!

          Help! Installation of a new Nvidia GPU

          by sdgzf ·

          In reply to Thank You WDavison!

          my problem is i want to install a Zotac brand Nvidia GeForce 7200 256MB DDR2 Memory GPU card. now the zotac manual says i should uninstall my current VGA card. Now i understand that my Foxconn motherboard has an on-board graphics capability and that i should disable it on the motherboard. is this as simple as opening up my PC casing and turning off a switch somewhere or should i go to Windows Device Manager, right click on the Intel(R) 82945gExpress Chipset Family and choose “Disable”? (or alternately right click the intel chipset, select properties, then go down to Device Usage and select “do not use this device (disable) ). please help!

          Remove the Video Card from the PC. Restart the PC and go to the Device Manager in Windows, right-click the entry for the driver for your onboard graphics card and select Disable. Apply the changes and shut down your PC.

          Boot the PC and enter the BIOS One of these keys should get you in.

          F1
          F2
          DEL
          ESC
          F10

          Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding one or more keys the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.. Go to the ‘Advanced Features? page and select to ‘Disable Onboard VGA?. The wording and location may vary according to your BIOS, but you should be able to find it. Press [F10] to save changes to the BIOS and exit.

          Shutdown and insert the Video Card. Reconnect the Monitor to the new card.

          Your PC should now boot recognising your new graphics card and prompt you to install the new drivers for it in Windows.

      Eleven minutes is just cruising …

      In reply to WDavison, hello, how were you able to answer my ? so fast?

      I think my fastest was about 4 minutes.

      As we scan around the TR board a new question may pop on just as we refresh our own browser display. If you spot it and can manage to answer quick enough, the time to the Original Poster getting a reply is mere minutes.

      Of course it doesn’t always work that way – due to the time differences around the World, some of us will be asleep when you first post your question. 🙂

        Ah. so anybody can answer any question, how naive of me. i think it would be fun if the time to correctly answer a question has some points or something that would enhance a memeber’s profile. sorry just kidding. Thanks Mycroft!

          In reply to Hello Old Mycroft,

          Just jump right in there.

          I’m not foolish enough to deny that you could probably teach me a few things.

          We are all knowledgeable of what we have studied/read, but experts in what we have experienced.

          That includes YOU. 😉

          Mmm – 09.22 Hrs as I type this, so you are sitting languishing in the evening around 7 at night (give or take an hour).

          Just about the correct time to be winding me up! 😉

          Ha-ha – I forgot it’s your Winter isn’t it !! :^0 …

          In reply to Yeah another hour :)

          I once had to suffer the Aussie’s complaining about their “bloody winter” when I was stationed on an Airbase down in your part of the world.

          I say ‘Airbase’ – it was just some scrubland with a couple of strips of reinforced concrete, with C-17s, C-130s, and a couple of American bits of junk scattered around.

          Hailing from Caledonia, I found the whole misery-thing quite amusing. :^0

          Currently @ 09.51 hours the temperature at Tain Bombing Range is 19’C

          Projected temperature at the Bombing Range is 24/25’C

          [i]My browser picks up the Met info from the Bombing Range[/i]

        The very first post from nino.y is to ask how he was able to answer so quickly.

        Then there was a solution to an unasked question!!????

        Unless the OP has another profile.
