Dead & don't know what to do

No, I haven't gone potty over the loss of my venerable BP6 (I have had it over 5 years), but it does seem to have died a funny death. It's been a while before it went but I thought i'd post a quick Q before the gf forces me to get rid of it. One day I went to boot it up & got no video, swapped the c...

An easy way to make Mandrake (at least 9.0 anyway) shut down is to put append="apm=power-off" in the options line of the lilo.conf entry for the SMP image. Works for me. :)

Truly independent multiple desktops

Does anyone know of any program that allows you to have multiple truly independent desktops in 2kpro. By independent I mean that you are able to change the actual layout of the desktop (the icons showing & their position, the background, etc..) I'm just wondering because there a set of program's I u...

So it doesn't bend right anymore but tell us, has it improved its stability, perhaps reduced its operating temperature. Will you put a howto up on the web to show us how to tweak too? :wink:

PC133 will run fine along side PC100 ram as the rating just tells you the max frequency the RAM is supposed (i.e. tested & certified) to work at. As you are unlikely to be getting the ole BP6 much near let alone the 100MHz mark you are well within the safe operating boundaries of the chips. From wha...

That would appear to make sense as if you're telling the OS that there's another CPU it will try & designate some work to that CPU, Only to find that there's nothing there & then have to do it on the original chip.

Ooo, ooo. I've not installed it yet but I saw it in Maplins for 20 quid so thought I might give it a go especially considering Maplins generous unwanted item return guarentee (though I have a sneaking suspicion that this might be excluded).

In 2K when you open task manager and go to the performance tab, if you go to the "view" menu & then the "CPU History" option it opens & gives you the choice whether to have 1 for both CPU's or 1 each.

It won't work because the 566 celerons are celeron II's, or of the FPPGA form factor (original cele's are PPGA type), the difference is basically one of pin layout being slightly different. The Neo is a socket that goes inbetween the chip and the mobo socket to reroute the pins. Not sure if powerlea...
