How can I find out what chipset my video card is using without opening the case?

In Windows 7:

  1. Right-click the desktop and select Personalize.
  2. In the lower-left corner, click Display.
  3. Click Change display settings, and then click Advanced settings.

In Vista, right-click the desktop and select Personalize. Click Display Settings.

In XP, right-click the desktop and select Properties. Click Settings.

You may see the name of the card here. If you do, use that information to look up the specific chipset if it is not already identified. If you do not see the card name, click Advanced Settings orAdvanced, and then click the Adapter tab. These panels also receive information from the driver rather than the hardware’s BIOS, so the information may be inaccurate.

Intel Mobile Processor Core i7 vs Core i7 Extreme Edition………….

The Core i7 line-up of processors from Intel is already well known to be very fast. Still, Intel releases processors for utmost performance. These are known as the Core i7 Extreme Edition. The most notable difference between the ordinary Core i7 and the Core i7 Extreme Edition is the unlocked multiplier. The multiplier is directly related to the actual speed that the processor works at. Given an external clock of 133Mhz, the 990X (Extreme Edition) has a multiplier of 26, which results in an actual speed of 3.47Ghz. For most processors, the multiplier is locked to a certain value to prevent users from tampering with it. In the Core i7 Extreme Edition, the unlocked multiplier lends itself nicely to overclocking. With the example above, changing the multiplier to 27 would make the processor operate at almost 3.6Ghz. Proper care should be taken in overclocking a processor as the practice can easily destroy your hardware.

Another major difference between the two is price. The latest Core i7 Extreme Edition processor always claims the $999 price tag. For that amount, most people can already build a complete computer, maybe even two. If price is a factor in choosing or building your computer, an ordinary Core i7 can cost hundreds of dollars less with only a minor decrease in performance.



Change Text on XP Start Button………….

Step 1 – Modify Explorer.exe File

In order to make the changes, the file explorer.exe located at C:\Windows needs to be edited. Since explorer.exe is a binary file it requires a special editor. For purposes of this article I have used Resource Hacker. Resource HackerTM is a freeware utility to view, modify, rename, add, delete and extract resources in 32bit Windows executables and resource files (*.res). It incorporates an internal resource script compiler and decompiler and works on Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP operating systems.

get this from h**p://

The first step is to make a backup copy of the file explorer.exe located at C:\Windows\explorer. Place it in a folder somewhere on your hard drive where it will be safe. Start Resource Hacker and open explorer.exe located at C:\Windows\explorer.exe.

The category we are going to be using is “String Table”. Expand it by clicking the plus sign then navigate down to and expand string 37 followed by highlighting 1033. If you are using the Classic Layout rather than the XP Layout, use number 38. The right hand pane will display the stringtable. We’re going to modify item 578, currently showing the word “start” just as it displays on the current Start button.

There is no magic here. Just double click on the word “start” so that it’s highlighted, making sure the quotation marks are not part of the highlight. They need to remain in place, surrounding the new text that you’ll type. Go ahead and type your new entry. In my case I used Click Me!

You’ll notice that after the new text string has been entered the Compile Script button that was grayed out is now active. I won’t get into what’s involved in compiling a script, but suffice it to say it’s going to make this exercise worthwhile. Click Compile Script and then save the altered file using the Save As command on the File Menu. Do not use the Save command – Make sure to use the Save As command and choose a name for the file. Save the newly named file to C:\Windows.

Step 2 – Modify the Registry

!!!make a backup of your registry before making changes!!!

Now that the modified explorer.exe has been created it’s necessary to modify the registry so the file will be recognized when the user logs on to the system. If you don’t know how to access the registry I’m not sure this article is for you, but just in case it’s a temporary memory lapse, go to Start (soon to be something else) Run and type regedit in the Open field. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ Winlogon

In the right pane, double click the “Shell” entry to open the Edit String dialog box. In Value data: line, enter the name that was used to save the modified explorer.exe file. Click OK.

Close Registry Editor and either log off the system and log back in, or reboot the entire system if that’s your preference. If all went as planned you should see your new Start button with the revised text.[/b]



Another simple way to reset non-administrator account passwords…………

Here is another simple way through which you can reset the password of any non-administrator accounts. The only requirement for this is that you need to have administrator privileges. Here is a step-by-step instruction to accomplish this task.

1. Open the command prompt (Start->Run->type cmd->Enter)

2. Now type net user and hit Enter

3. Now the system will show you a list of user accounts on the computer. Say for example you need to reset the password of the account by name John, then do as follows

4. Type net user John * and hit Enter. Now the system will ask you to enter the new password for the account. That’s it. Now you’ve successfully reset the password for John without knowing his old password.

So in this way you can reset the password of any Windows account at times when you forget it so that you need not re-install your OS for any reason. I hope this helps.
