    Ram of different sizes, bad for performance?

    Aye indeed, hence the 1-3, 2-4 socketing. If the system isn't bothered by differences in size I'll keep all six :D. Cheers for that.

    Ram of different sizes, bad for performance?

    Hey everyone, I'd like to ask you about my RAM - I've got 6gb at the moment, 2x2gb and 2x1gb. They're both Corsair somethings, matched latencies and xx-x-xx numbers. I thought I might as well just stick them all in there, more RAM the better? Will that mis-matches in size cause any kind of...

    I think someone has hacked my mum's email and is sending spam, help please!

    Huuum, spookey... How though, if it's just spoofing, did they get hold of her specific contacts, and only send to them? Also, if it's Spoofed, why would it have anything to do with Hotmail's server? Surely it would go from the spammers server just with a fake name, and have no contact with...

    I think someone has hacked my mum's email and is sending spam, help please!

    Thanks for the info Phantom010, I've experienced that before but I don't think it's what's going on here - at least from reading that description of e-mail spoofing. The e-mails are actually in the sent folder, one after another of the same message (large image with a couple of links) being...

    Just noticed device manager is claiming an unidentified 'SM Bus Controller', could that be the problem? And what is an SM Bus Controller?

    Driver_Power_State_Failure Recurring BSOD, please help.

    Hey, I keep getting a Driver_Power_State_Failure BSOD, I think when it tries to put itself to sleep. I'll give my specs before anything else: Abit IP35 Pro Q6600 GTX 260 (Put that card in this morning, had the same prob with 8800) 6GB RAM (that's 2x2gb + 2x1gb of the same stuff, Corsair...

    Vista BSOD, now the system doesn't boot.

    Evening all, A friend asked me to install a game on his Vista laptop, so of course I did and all was well until BSODs started to happen. Initially the system just needed a reboot and all was well but at some point a 'major' one must have occoured. After post the screen goes blank, but the...

    CD drive gone after failed install of PowerDVD

    I tried the downloadable fix, and am willing to try the manual if its anythign different. I meant I've played with regedit in the past and it hasn't gone well, such things as trying to kill M$ activation after it told me my 'configuration ahd significantly changed' for installing new sodding...

    CD drive gone after failed install of PowerDVD

    I've played with regedit before, and normally it doesn't end too well... Interestingly powerVDD doesn't appear in the add/remove programs list. There isn't an uninstaller in the directory, so I'm trying to delete the whole folder and I'm given the error that I've been denied access to...
