In order to run 16-bit or DOS applications on a 64-bit system, one can use DosBox, which is one of the most used DOS emulators out there. It can reliably emulate most features of the DOS system, whilst providing adequate compatibility with several graphic and sound hardware. First, download DOSBox from its site. The link I gave will take you to the download ...

To play Mah Jongg (1991), or any other Internet Archive Software Collection game that will run on DOSbox with a desktop shortcut on Windows 8/7, follow the procedure outlined below: Creating a Desktop Shortcut That Opens Mah Jongg (1991) in DOSBox: I am running DOSBox0.74. If you run another version simply change the file path to the corresponding name ...

The bit width of the bus (PCI, PCI-X, AGP, PCIe, etc) has nothing to do with the processor word size. It is simply the number of bits the communication channel can carry at a time. The southbridge (now part of the Intel PCH or AMD chipset) handles the communication between the CPU and expansion cards (including video cards), so the bit width of the bus does ...

I encountered this as well, even in safe mode. Turned out to be some rogue .dll file watching for anti-virus installers, hogging resources when it found something. Assuming malware (or some other infection), I would try trojan hunter, or maybe search & destroy. Trojan hunter is what finally worked for me.

Unfortunately, this is not possible. To convert from 32-bit to 64-bit requires a full reinstall of the operating system. Thankfully, 32-bit keys are also valid for 64-bit installations (source) so you would be allowed to do this. If you have a legitimate key, you can get your hands on an ISO for installation here: ...

It seems that the problem is that when your computer is extracting the files for some reason it is not executing the files. There are two way's of solving this. The first and easiest way is to try another anti virus software (I would try this first). The second more complicated way is to go to windows explore and type %temp% in the navigation bar and press ...

For the double-click opening, adjust your Explorer file associations under Tools --> Folder Options --> File Types. Pick out the PSD file type and then choose "Change" to assign a new file handler. Photoshop 32-bit is located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe PhotoshopCS4\Photoshop.exe

You can simply just get a cheap S-video to VGA converter for cheap (which I'm sure your 19" monitor would support) for your 3rd monitor output from single card If you specifically need DVI output there are s-Video to DVI converters but they are expensive as they are a scaler box / scan converter, not just a cable / pin convertion (as the s-video output ...

HP have not done a good job at making their vista driver installer work well in Windows 7/8. But the actual drivers work fine. Install them as follows. Download and unzip http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software12/COL16807/ly-44482-3/CM1015-1017_FW_Update-20120927.exe (It's 400MB!) If you just want to install the scan/print drivers alone without all HP's ...

This happened to me after I installed Hyper-V on my computer. Apparently, you cannot use these advanced options and Hyper-V at the same time. I went to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off and disabled Hyper-V. After rebooting, everything is back to normal.

There are three options here: The card only has 64 bit drivers (unlikely, though 32bit systems are finally dying and eventually no new software will be written for them. This might take a few more years though). It is not PCI-e. Joeqwerty's comment about PCI or PCI-X might be on target. PCI comes in 32 bit and in 64 bit flavours. PCI-e comes in lanes. The ...
