ReadyBoost - tab is missing in the properties, and it does not work!

Title says it all. When I insert a disc and the Autorun dialog opens, if I click "Speed up my system" it just opens the property page for the device with the free space, etc. The ReadyBoost tab isn't there.

I especially don't think that I NEED, I'm 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium with 4 GB of RAM. But this isn't the point, please do not answer with "you don't need, so don't bother. All I see is that is not a feature that is supposed to be there, if I need it or not, it could indicate a bigger problem with my PC.

Where the ReadyBoost tab? I know in Win7, the service is incorporated with Superfetch, and I checked this service is launched and automatic. I tried to format the USB key as each file system and also tried the switching device to "Optimize for performance" etc. Nothing. I ran "sfc/scannow", and he found no problem.

Any help guys?



ReadyBoost in Windows 7 is much better integrated and provides even better than Vista speed.

ReadyBoost still help your performance if you run a lot of memory intense programs, run a
many programs in the same time, or use some that access large files. In Windows 7 there is none
upper limit of the amount of memory to use for ReadyBoost. In Vista, it was limited to 4 GB.

Turn ReadyBoost on or off for a storage device

Keep an eye on ReadyBoost with Windows 7 performance monitor

ReadyBoost in Windows 7


Explore the features: Windows ReadyBoost


Start - computer, or Windows Explorer right click on the drive - properties - ReadyBoost
tab will indicate IF the drive passes the test of ReadyBoost.

The problem may be with the USB key you try - it might be too slow. Several USB thumb-
readers have a bit of fast memory, and then the rest is much slower. Some of them will spend the
ReadyBoost speed test but does not work properly. If a player does not have speed ReadyBoost
test then ReadyBoost will not even an option.

many of them are or stretching at least the truth. Look at the sides of the player below and buy
a you know is FAST.

Don't forget that the readyboost max cache is 4 GB for Vista and unlimited in Windows 7. If your
device is 4 GB on Vista, you can use the rest for storage. In Windows 7, you can
Use any space not reserved for ReadyBoost as storage device. And you need a fast reader.

  • Does not display the images and CSS does not work generated WebHelp

    Hi all

    I have two issues which I believe are related. It miss me probably a simple step somewhere, since I can't find this issue covered in the forum or help.

    We have just upgraded to RH7 to RH9. When I build a project to test, the CSS was fate not (it was connected properly in the topics of the project, but he was not released when the WebHelp has been generated). Trying to open the CSS file directly led to a 404 error.

    I was able to solve that by checking the "Apply to all" button and selecting the CSS file we use (see image). However, none of our lists - ordered and unordered - are properly formatted. The font and size of numbered lists is incorrect, lists all nested lists display with numbers, even if they are not ordained and autonomous bulleted lists use evenly filled as circles dig balls, where previously they used the small squares, circles, or a picture of triangle. The CSS is called correctly in the subject, lists are formatted to use the styles and the styles are in the style sheet, so I do not know what causes this problem. So far, I have not noticed any other styles does not, but those are the ones that stand out.

    WebHelp Settings (CSS).png

    The other problem is with the images. This problem appears in both our WebHelp generated and in the printed documentation. The images are not output. In WebHelp, the text appears (typically the name of the file). in the printed documentation, nothing appears. (I checked all the printed documents that "embedded" is selected, but as far as I know, there isn't a similar function for the WebHelp).

    What Miss me? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Source code control is involved?

    So you can see the CSS in the project manager and it works very well in the design editor but does not every time that you build for. Can you just build or generate and publish? You use Windows Explorer to check the CSS in both places?

    How do you get a 404 error? This happens when you click on a link where the target does not exist. Normally you would use Windows Explorer to locate the CSS.

    Lists are a known problem on upgrade from 7. See the lists on my site.

    The images show in the project manager?

  • The water on the keyboard and it does not work after that I cleaned

    Ispilled a bit of water on my keyboard lapyop and wipe immediately, but it's still not working what can I do

    Hi lizfs,

    Give, it drying time and see if that helps.  If not, chances are although the keyboard has gotten watered (pardon the pun) with some type of short circuit or something and must be replaced.  With laptops, the water passes also through the keyboard to the components below, then it may be fairer than.  Computers many do not like water.

    Try contacting the manufacturer of the computer for advice and assistance.  Most keyboards can be removed amd which may help to speed up the drying or show more obvious shorts or water that you missed.

    In the meantime, you can try to attach a USB keyboard to be able to use the computer.  If they can not will not help (and this test will narrow the magnitude of the problem, if this keyboard works or ID a broader issue, if it's not), then your only real choice is a local reputable computer repair shop (NOT Geek Squad or any like that) to see if something can be done.

    Good luck!

  • SGA, PGA is greater than the memory and oracle does not work


    Wrongly, I put the following:

    ALTER system SET sga_max_size = 1500M scope = spfile;

    ALTER system SET SGA_TARGET = 1400M scope = spfile;


    My total memory is 16 GB, Win8

    When I rebooted the oracle, he could not start and I m sure 100% that these sizes of memory are the problem.

    Now, I can not connect to the DB set these sizes of memory.

    How can I change the SGA, PGA, while the entire oracle is down? It is not only the DB instance that is nt working. It s the entire oracle.

    Is it possible to change the spfile from a text editor?

    I d appreciate your quick responses.

    Kind regards

    Vidar, great recommendation.  There are cases where the spfile directly change can cause problems. If you happen who meet and the spfile is not usable, you can also create a new pfile of content in the journal of the alerts, start the instance by using the new file pfile, then make a copy of the pfile to the spfile.  Here are the basic steps if the spfile is corrupted and you need to create a new:

    (1) find the alerts log, copy the lines below the comment "parameters of the system with default values:" in a new file calledinit .ora and save the file in the directory by default (dbs or database) file.

    (2) make sure that the bad spfile is not in the directory of the file/start setting and start the Oracle service & the instance should now be available.  If you are not able to connect as "/" try to use sys / as sysdba

    (3) create a copy of the spfileinit .ora file: sql > create spfile from pfile;     -You can specify the directories, or leave the default value.

    (4) return & validate the parameters according to the directives of our discussion earlier.

    Hussien, I hope this helps.

  • Click and drag does not work.

    It kills me.

    I can't click and drag anything. No selection tools. No net.

    I tried the magic keys to reset the settings of the interface, and it does not work. I'm good at Googling, and I couldn't find anything. Any ideas?

    Thank you


    Nope! I have homework due, so I went on a crazy uninstall spree. I uninstalled Gmote, Spotify, Macrokey Manager (whatever the hell that is) and a Ubuntu Wubi installation. The latter was probably unnecessary - my money is the Gmote or MacroKey Manager.

    Whatever it is, it works now. Didn't even have to restart Photoshop.
