comment Need Solaris network driver 64bit
Read this article. It's related to your card. Unfortunately, it seems that Marvell removed Solaris drivers from its website.

comment Need Solaris network driver 64bit
Can you find out the card's chip? You may be able to get Solaris drivers at the chip manufacturer's site. Also the behavior is strange. I know that skge works fine in 64 bits, but it's questionable if that is the right driver for your card.

comment Need technical info on NEC FC-9801V “factory” computer
If you don't get a good answer here, you could try at electrical engineering. Repair questions that show some research are allowed there.

comment Is there a persistant storage in router with dd-wrt
As far as I remember, DD-WRT splits the flash into part for the read-only partition with the system that gets loaded into RAM and decompressed and then used and a small part used for settings storage that could be written to. You could try using that for as storage space. The problem comes up if you need to install an additional program to the router to do the monitoring because there will be little space left. When I had such a problem, in the end I had to move to OpenWRT which doesn't use read-only filesystem.

comment How often are IP addresses blocks for countries updated?
From my experience, very slowly. My country changed its name twice over the last 10 years (last change was in 2008) and there are still numerous location services that use older names which can cause all sots of problems for example: you can't ship to non-existing country, so there are web stores that take some effort to set up correctly because they try to auto-detect location, there are some sites that show wrong language because of bad interpretation for two letter country codes and so on.

comment Why there's no hibernate/sleep option for Windows Server 2008 R2?
Maybe because there's no use for those options on a server? Why would a server ever need to hibernate and not shut down or restart?

comment System and Interrupts causing high CPU
This is most likely related to ahrdware. Get newest BIOS, newest drivers for everything... Try out LatencyMon, it may help you narrow down the driver which is problematic. Basically someone wrote interrupt service routine that's taking way too much processor time and there are usually two ways around that: get a new driver or disable the device functionality that uses that ISR. Either way, it'll take lots of experimentation to figure out what's happening.

comment How to get a triple monitor setup for my Vaio?
ExpressCards use internal USB 2.0 or PCI-Ex1 connection while PCMCIA cards use their own bus system which is similar to PCI. Anyway, they are incompatible and I think that PCMCIA doesn't offer any advantages over say USB video cards (unless you happen not to have a USB port). There are some external ExpressCars video cards, but they too are a bit rare and unusual.

comment Is it possible to download Visual Studio 2010 Updates?
I think that microsoft doesn't provide such an option. There may be other programs that can download updates and provide packages which could be easier to install, but I can't recommend anything right now as haven't used one in very long time.

comment Is it possible to download Visual Studio 2010 Updates?
Yes. When they show up in windows update, carefully analyze the screen. You'll have option like find out more about this update. When you click on it, you'll go to the update's site from which you can download it.

comment Will upgrading my laptop's wireless card make it support 802.11n?
There's always option to get a miniPCI or miniPCIe card with the adapter.

I know that there was software for windows that could do this but I don't remember the name, and I know that it is possible under GNU/Linux and some Unix systems.

comment Two instances of one computer
But wouldn't the physical and virtual machine share same keyboard and mouse? I know that when you connect several mice to a computer, they all appear as same pointer. Same for keyboards too.

comment How to solve extreme DPC latency peaks (240.000µs)
Try with LatencyMon and post its results. It's most likely a driver problem, but this should help you narrow it down.

comment AMD 6700 video card powers monitor through DP to HDMI adapter but not 3 simultaneous monitors
Are you sure that 6700 can actually drive 3 monitors? Most "consumer" cards I've seen in the last few years can only provide output for 2 monitors at the same time.

comment CPU monitoring: hyper threading, current clock speed
@David Schwartz How would you detect if a program is running on a real or a virtual core? If you have the ability to manually assign your process to a particular core, you'd definitely want not to have it running on a real core and that core's virtual core. Also note that the "virtual" cores are also real physical objects that can be touched because they do have circuitry on the CPU itself (but that is irrelevant because even if it were not so, a program can't go outside of the computer and base its ability to see if it's on real or virtual core by determining if it can touch the core or not).

@Michael Kohne From where did you get the idea that some special irons are needed for lead-free soldering?

comment CPU monitoring: hyper threading, current clock speed
Intel CPUs are always using Hyper-threading and as far as I know, there's no way to see which is real core and which is virtual inside of the operating system. As for frequency, I'd give CPU-Z a shot. It should be able to detect frequency of each core independently and tell you which is running at which frequency.

comment invincible laptop motherboard solder
It could be that the joint is covered in some particularly strong conformal coating that is actually solder-proof. Some time ago, I was trying to unsolder wires form a computer microphone and I used 80 W soldering iron at 400 C for maybe 30 minutes on the joint and I still couldn't remove the solder. I tried sanding the stuff away, but I couldn't even scratch it. I think that they ought to paint tanks with that stuff. :)
