  1. I installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 14.04 & Windows 8.1 just Yesterday. Now in Windows 8 There is a pecular problem. Whenever i interact with any object on the screen, the computer freezes, for about 30-40 secs. This happens almost all the time say 5-6 times in 10 minutes. The reason behind this was that DISK ACTIVE TIME which is shown by Task Manager spikes up to 100% & stays there for about a minute or so. But in Ubuntu, none of these things happen I can use Ubuntu Lag free comfortably The same thing used to happen with my previous Drive, so i got it replaced from WD, but even after replacing same issue still persists. Pls someone help. My System Config : AMD Phenom X6 1055T 2.8GHz Gigabyte 880GM-UD2h Kingston 4GB DDR3 HyperX WD Black 1TB
  2. For some mysterious reason, my PC (running Windows 7) has started scheduling a disk check every time a start up. This is obviously annoying as it takes time and is unnecessary. I have to watch out each time for the 'press any key' message to put a stop to it. On the advice of our friendly computer nerd, I've gone through the procedure: Right mouse click on C drive. Select Properties. Select Tools. Click on check now for error checking. Tick both boxes offered. Click OK. Reboot. The PC, of course, then goes through whole shebang of full disk checking (takes a couple of hours; meanwhile the PC is out of use). This seems to work for a couple of start ups but then occurs again. Driving me crackers ! What do I do to stop this happening ?
  3. I have a rather strange situation on my hands. You see, here at my new workplace, we have a certain industrial machine which requires several programs and drivers which, in turn, only run on Windows 95. In addition, the installation CDs for said programs and drivers have evidently been missing for the last ten years. Up until now, we have been using a Compaq Prolinea 4/66 which is probably older than I am, but it's on its last legs and so it has fallen to the resident assistant IT tech (me) to come up with a solution that doesn't cost the company any money. Now, I happen to have an old HP dc7600 lying around with Windows XP SP3 Pro. At first, it was my plan to run a virtual machine (via VMware) with the Win95 image. Unfortunately, VMware requires more than 1GB of RAM which is all I have on hand. If worse comes to worst, I'll pay out of my own pocket for more memory, but I'd rather avoid that unless it's absolutely necessary. My next best bet seems to be to try and create a bootable USB flash drive with the existing Win95 installation on it. I have found various tutorials for running a bootable DOS prompt which can then be used to initialize a fresh version of Win95, but I can't seem to locate a way by which an existing installation could be utilized. Any suggestions, either for a flash drive trick or some other method? It doesn't need to be fast, and it doesn't need to be pretty, it just needs to work. I am unsure what system specs one would need to know for this particular issue, but the dc7600 I'm working with has Windows XP SP3 Professional v.2002, 1 GB of memory, an 80 GB HDD, and an Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.20 GHz. If you need any further information, do not hesitate to ask. Many thanks.
