Portege R100: FDISK and format HDD takes a long time

I have a Portege R100 and when I tried executing FDISK it will take a lot of time to create a DOS partition.

After executing FDISK, I tried to FORMAT the HD and takes more than 6 hours to format the hard drive.
After Format, I tried to load Win XP but it hanged system with loading messages files...

Could someone hep me


Why you do not restore CD to create new partitions? It can be done very quickly. This option is available in the installation in Expert mode.

Time FDISK is long gone. :)

  • Firefox takes a long time to close since a recent update and memory of pigs.

    Since the recent updates that have begun to use containers of plugin, Firefox takes a long time to close. If I try to go back there, he said that it is still running. I have liik in the Manager of tasks and about seven containers plugin. exe is running, and I turned off or disabled mostplugins and addons, same Quicktime. Firefox uses an obscene amount of RAM on my XP machine and rendered sluggish. I use XP SP3. This started after you added the plugin container in one of the recent updates earlier in the year. For the features it offers me or does not offer me, instead, it uses far too much RAM and is too slow. And takes a long time to close when I close the browser. It uses about twice as much RAM as it was.

  • Pages take a long time to load in versions 6,7 and 8, version 5 works fine.

    Version 5 works fine, when I updated to 6.7, and now 8, pages take a long time to load. It's on 2 different computers, one with Vista, Windows 7 other. If I restart Firefox it helps, but the problem comes back. Does not happen with IE or Opera.

    Try to decrease the value of the pref Network.http.Max - connections 256-30 such as used in versions of Firefox 3.

    One possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or limits Firefox or plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after the detection of changes (update) for the Firefox program.

    Delete all rules for Firefox in the list of permissions in the firewall and leave your firewall again ask permission to get full unlimited access to the internet for Firefox and the plugin-container and the update process.

  • Devices and printers takes a long time to open

    In Windows 7, the devices and printers open almost instantly. In Windows 8 Pro x 64, devices and printers takes almost 30 seconds to open, and it takes a long time whenever I open it. How can I shorten the time required for the devices and printers to open?

    Before you answer, please note the following:
    • I don't get an error message when I open devices and printers.
    • I have not made any recent hardware or software changes to the computer.
    • I experience the same behavior when Windows 8 starting in a boot environment.

    My problem is solved.

    Instead of wasting time on generic solutions, I should look for a specific cause from the start. In my case, the problem was with my scanner. In devices and printers, I open my scanner and selected properties of analysis. On the events under Actions tab, Windows had chosen to 'Interrogate what program to run.' I changed it to "Start this program" and choose my scanner software in the drop-down list.
    Devices and printers now opens almost instantly.

    I tried to increase the number of cells under "App settings-> options-> warn if greater than 5 000 000 000 data form. I even tried to '0 '. Nothing works planning 9.3.1


    That's how I've always changed the number of cells, after which display the message on the forms of data.

    There are 2 levels of adjustment. You can configure the application level, but users must select "Use Application Defaults" in the planning of the preferences of the user parameters. To do this, use the file-> Preferences and select schedule.

    Otherwise, you can set the value of the number of cells at the level of the user for ' warn if data form more xxxx ". It should solve the problem. This should be the installation program if you have not selected checkbox default Application for the user in the preferences of planning.

    If nothing else works, it is very difficult to guess, I would open a SR with Oracle.

  • Video takes a LONG time

    Howdy, everyone. I am currently shopping around for a video editing application, and I'm using the trial version of Adobe Premiere Elements. I love everything about it so far, except for one thing. It takes a long time to save the final video file (from the tab share). I noticed he gets to 50% fairly quickly, probably within five minutes and at that time there the progress bar slows down to a crawl. It takes more than two hours for the last 50% complete. Is this rare or should I wait?

    Here's a little history of my project, in case this is useful.

    The video project is a little less than 30 minutes.

    On the sharing tab, I selected to export files for viewing on computers.

    The type of video I want is WMV (Windows Media). I can vary from this format. It is a requirement of the project.

    Image size: 1024 x 768. At the moment I can't vary that size. The video must be 1024 x 768.

    Frame rate: 30 fps

    Audio: mono 48 kbps, 44 kHz, CBR

    Codec: Windows Media 9

    Encoding Passes: 1

    Bitrate Mode: Constant (I also tried of Variable quality, but noticed no difference in time rendering)

    Maximum flow: 200 Kbps (the first time I tried 2 000 kbit/s, but I noticed no difference in time rendering)

    Image quality: 3 (I also tried 90 but once again without any perceptible difference when rendering time)

    My laptop:

    Windows XP Pro SP3

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz

    2 GB of RAM

    The window says that I would wait the video size to be 53MB in size, which seems reasonable. But when it finishes, it is more than ten times greater than this estimate. I don't understand why the file size is so big and the render time is so long.

    My rendering time is governed or strangled because I am using a trial version of Premiere Elements?

    If this is not the case, what suggestions you all for me? Am I be unreasonable while waiting for my render times to be faster than the duration of the video?

    Thanks in advance for your help. Please let me know if I can provide any other details.

    WMV is a highly compressed format/CODEC, and the duration of the treatment will depend on several factors:

    Your CPU, which is not as powerful in your case

    Your auxiliary I/o system, which is probably a single HDD on your laptop

    The source footage. What is your source footage?

    No effect added to the images. You have all the effects?

    Each of them will have an impact on the time required.

    The trial is that a single main limitation - watermark. Now, there are some components that need to be triggered, but are not tested, but they would not obvious with the import of your source footage, if it is a question.

    Good luck


  • Satellite M300 PSMDCA takes a long time to start

    I have a Toshiba Satellite M300 PSMDCA - 01800C and there are some problems with it.

    First of all, when you start the computer, it takes a long time to start and activate Outlook.
    I am running Windows 7Home Premium.
    Computers arrow where I bought the computer told me that it can take up to three hours to go back through each process at startup?

    Is it normal that all I wanted was a simple portable easy fast, but it seems that I am stuck again.

    Also, when I go back to the computer, even after some time the mouse it does not provide new and pushing the Start button just a blank screen. Alt + Ctrl + delete, then he activates Windows again and then after having put my password and I have to wait for that be again loaded everything that takes so long. Any ideas?

    Also I often get the message when the computer starts "error has occurred in Toshiba PC Health Monitor. He will leave the application. "Main.frm.cpp (184). Any ideas?

    Quite often when I am scrolling with the mouse, the screen will turn black and flash and a message «the NVIDIA display driver... couldn't Reg...» "and he will correct itself after awhile. Frustrating!
    Quite often when scrolling on the websites of the page I'm going to freeze?

    I use MS Office 2010 and there is a problem trying to save Word documents and a message comes up with "a file permission error.

    Any thoughts? Thanks, Shirl51

    > First of all, when you start the computer, it takes a long time to start and activate Outlook. I am running Windows 7Home Premium. Computers arrow where I bought the computer told me that it can take up to three hours to go back through each process at startup?

    This nonsense!
    The system should boot up quickly my laptop needs 30 seconds to start.
    In my opinion, the system is screwed

    In your case, I recommend to reinstall the system.
    Did you create the recovery disk?
    If this isn't the case, I think that detailed instructions should be placed in the user's manual.

    After the recovery of disk has been created, restore the system, BUT save the data before doing so because the recovery disk would be to format the HARD drive and you lose data!

  • Still burned DVD takes a long time to load into the reader

    I created a DVD in Encore CS3.  The final DVD is approximately 60 minutes and has 4 menus created in Photoshop CS3.  I purchased the Dolby converted in first and used this file as PCM format indicated by a friend vs.   The DVD works fine but takes a long time to load in one of my DVD players.

    A Sony player, it takes between 40 minutes and up to 70 seconds to load and play the first menu.  Each time is different.

    (This same drive load purchased in-store Hollywood style DVD in about 15 seconds on average)

    In another Sony player my DVD on average about 25 seconds

    A Panasonic player, it takes about 15 seconds

    In a portable player from JVC, it takes about 8 seconds.

    That is what it is?  This DVD is created for replication in a large number, but I'm afraid the long loading time is a problem and you want to solve this problem before sending it to the wide for replication.

    Help, please

    Thank you



    One consideration is that there is no DVD drive certified to play any burned DVD, only those press/replicated. Most do and do as well, with provisions, but some don't.

    Now for these provisions. High quality blank media will get a closer all the success, just like using a slower speed of the burn, as the max. These two considerations will get a close, as it is possible.

    What brand of blank media are you using? Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden are about as good as it gets.

    How fast you burn to? I would look into a speed in the middle of the range permitted by the combo of speed by the media and the burning speed. Slower is better than more fast.

    As Stanley, there may be differences with r and + R media and players. There has been much more a problem, but some players still might prefer a vs the other.

    Finally, when you say "replicated", do you mean that you send in a DLT to make a House of replication a glassmaster, where the DVD is going to be in a hurry? If Yes, these replicated discs will be like the Hollywood DVD and will be NOT burnt, as was your test drive. The question will be moot with these, as they will be DVD-videos, where your burned DVD is really a DVD - ROM.

    Good luck


  • The system preference takes a long time to load

    As the title suggests, end of 2013 (10.11.4) System Preferences on my iMac takes a long time to load, even after a fresh reinstall and/or reboot (tried both). It takes about 20 seconds to one minute each time to open (except when I close it and immediately open it once again, as it is always loaded in memory). This problem existed only after the upgrade to El Capitan, and I saw many other people with iMacs with the same problem. I tried to remove cache for before system preferences files, but that did not help at all. I don't have a FileVault if it makes a difference, even if I did before reinstall, but never turned back (persistent question anyway). Any recommendations would be useful. Thank you!

    Data sheet:

    iMac (end 2013)

    Intel Core i5 at 2.7 GHz

    8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

    1 TB 5400 RPM HARD DRIVE

    Intel Pro Iris 1536 MB

    I found it is the State of affairs in 10.11 if running a HD spinning.  Don't feel alone.

    I suspect that it is a function of low priority in the memory compressed algorithm.

    Upgrading to an SSD and it will rise to attention.

  • Visual Studio 2008 Pro takes a long time to start after the installation of measurement Studio 2009

    After installing Measurement Studio 2009, I noticed that it takes a long time (30-60 seconds) to open a Visual Studio project.

    I do not have an internet connection on my development computer and suspect he might be waiting on some kind of operation of the network to time out.  I had problems with Visual Studio in the past as well and had to work around them by adding entries to my hosts file (to redirect some addresses of Microsoft to the local IP address - this causes network operations to expire immediately).

    Just curious if anyone has encountered this kind of slow startup time and found a solution.

    Thank you!

    I found an article referring to a question similar to MS 8.1.  I don't know if the problem has simply not been corrected or why I am still having this problem.  Workaround "per computer" listed in the article solved my problem.
