Razer Tarantula, 10-key rollover, and the secret code

Sun, 2009-11-01 17:42 by anonymous · Forum/category:

I recently got myself a new keyboard, the fairly expensive Razer Tarantula. One of the key features of this keyboard is its so called Anti-Ghosting, which is more precisely described as 10-key rollover over USB. (k-key rollover denotes the ability of keyboards to correctly handle a situation in which k keys are pressed simultaneously, independent of the combination pressed) However, to use it, you need to know the secret code!

Windows XP dissapeared

Hi, to everyone i write for first time and here is my problem: Before some time my laptop went down and the company which i bought it replaced it with a new one. But i kept the hard disk i had. When i plug the hd to the new laptop ( same specifications as the previous i had ) and tried to run Windows XP BSODs appeared either in safe mode or normal mode or even previous known good configuration. I know that the partitions are still in the hard disk and hard disk works well as i connected to a pc via a usb cable and managed to see my files.

keyboard error really was corrupted touchpad driver.

For about 3 months I tried to get Asus to fix what acted like a keyboard error on my Eee PC 1000HD/XP.

The cursor (character position) would jump around with no pattern. There were never character errors (wrong character) just in the wrong place.

I sent it to their repair depots in Indiana and Califoria. Each time it came back at NTF (No Trouble Found) In California they even replaced the keyboard. No change.

Then I noticed that the touchpad was far more sensitive than needed.

I downloaded a driver update from the touchpad manufacturers website and that fixed it.

Got an old computer that i am upgrading. Installed Windows xp but have no service pack installed yet. This old computer is NOT online yet. I downloaded a sp1a service pack on my other computer and took it to the old computer to install but get an error when it tries to find the network server. Does anyone know where I can get a sp1a that doesn't require a online connection?

Vista: Older sound devices don't work

Mon, 2008-03-24 14:58 by admin · Forum/category:

The technical background is that the dreaded DRM (Digital Rights Management) is built into Vista and requires matching hardware and drivers. If you try to connect any USB sound device manufactured before Vista, i.e. approximately before 2007, like a USB headset (including Bluetooth headsets), Vista will refuse to use it and issue errors like "Device Cannot Start (Code 10)". The device will show in Device Manager with a yellow warning sign.

Microsoft has put up a Knowledge Base article:
