A peculiar matter(??) about NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS

Hi ,
I have connected as user sys in a database 10g v.2 and issued the command:
System alteredI have seen the modification in the spfile :
*.dispatchers='(PROTOCOL=TCP) (SERVICE=infoXDB)'
*.pga_aggregate_target=96468992I terminated this a connection and tried to import in this database(characterset UTF8 -multibytecharacterset) some data i exported form another database(characterset EL8MSWIN1253 - singlebyte characterset). Some rows failed to be inserted because of error ORA-12899.
What should i have done in order to be inserted....??? Should i restart the database after the change of NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTINCS...????
Many thanks

This parameter is only taken into account for newly created tables and not for existing object. You should modify your tables with ALTER TABLE ... MODIFY ... . Note that tables export definition inherit their byte/character semantics from source database. See Re: Converting from Single Byte to Multi Byte character set

  • A peculiar matter about Materialized Views

    Hi ,
    I have created successfully some months ago some MV. Later on , I was made to destroy the database and create a new one , using the DBCA. The peculiar is that whenever i issue the command :
    sql> drop materialized view stat_biox_f_mv;
    Oracle displays the error ORA-12003: the materialized view stat_biox_f_mv does not exist.
    When i issue the command:
    sql>create materialized view stat_biox_f_mv
    build immediate
    refresh start with (sysdate)+(10/1440)
    next (sysdate)+10/1440
    select count(f) N_f,sum(f) Sx_f,round(avg(f),3) x_f,round(stddev(f),3) SD_f,
    round(avg(f)+2*stddev(f),3) Ru_f,round(avg(f)-2*stddev(f),3) Rd_f,
    round(stddev(f)/sqrt(count(f)),3) SE_f,round((100*stddev(f))/avg(f),3) CV_f,
    (power((sum(power(f,2))-(power(sum(f),2)/count(f))),2)))-3,3) Sk_f,
    (power(stddev(f),2)*count(f)),3) Sa_f
    from biox
    Oracle displays the error ORA-00955: the object does exist
    Eventually , the object exists or does not...?????
    Thanks , a lot

    Have you queried all_objects? Perhaps the materialized view doesn't exist but a table with the same name does. If you do find any objects with that name, drop them.
    SELECT * FROM all_objects WHERE object_name = UPPER('stat_biox_f_mv');
    Have you tried creating this MV with a different name? Does that work?

  • Alter system set nls_length_semantics

    Hi all,
    my question concerns the scope in the change of NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS can be performed.
    The 10gR2 documentation only the
    "Modifiable      ALTER SESSION"
    But what about altering the system and making your own setting to default for all sessions? With which scope?
    I tried
    alter system set nls_length_semantics='CHAR';
    alter system set nls_length_semantics='CHAR' scope=spfile;
    alter system set nls_length_semantics='CHAR' scope=both;
    None had really any effect. Do I have to bounce the database?

    Do I have to bounce the database?Yes, you have to shutdown and startup the database.
    Else the NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS change won't be effective.
    You may have more details on the following thread:
    nls_database_parameters->nls_length_semantics Help!
    There's also an interesting Note from MOS:
    Examples and limits of BYTE and CHAR semantics usage (NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS) [ID 144808.1]They give many information about NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS and the following Bug:
    Bug 1488174
    Problem: ALTER SYSTEM does not change the setting of NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS for the current and new (!) sessions.
    Workaround: Don't use ALTER SYSTEM SET NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS scope=both; but set NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS as a init.ora parameter or issue ALTER SYSTEM SET NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR scope=spfile; and bounce the database.Hope this help.
    Best regards,

  • Does the cache matter when choosing hard drive for mac pro?

    I have been looking at all the specs to see about adding another hard drive to my mac pro. It is the 1st generation 2006 duel. I am getting a bit confused about the specs required! I don't understand cache? I think that mine is 8 cache, but a lot of the drives I am looking at are 16 or more. Is this important, have I got to stick to 8? Also does it matter about which Sata? i.e. 1, 11 or 111? and what does 'low profile' mean? Fitting it seems really easy, but buying the wrong drive seems easy as well!
    Thanks for any help,

    Desktop drives are nominal 3.5" form factors, about one inch tall. They use a 12 Volt motor to spin the heavy platters around fairly fast.
    Notebook rotating drives are mostly 2.5" form factor, now mostly around 9.5mm tall, possibly less. They have only 5 Volts available to spin the motor.
    SATA 1, 2, 3 -- 1.5, 3.0 and 6.0 is all specsmanship -- rotating drives cannot source data off the spinning platters faster than  a burst of about 150 Mbytes/sec (1.2 Mbits/sec). So that part does not matter except that the 1.5 drives will be older models. Do note pay extra for better SATA speeds.
    Rotation speed is very important, because that determines how fast the bits can fly past the read head. 5400 RPM is slower than 7200 RPM. A few 10,000 RPM drives are available, but they are too pricey for most users. I use 10,000 RPM drives in my Server. For Desktop computers, DO pay extra for 7200 over 5400. For notebook computers, a few 7200 RPM drives are available, but they sometimes run HOT.
    Green drives, on the other hand, take great liberties with spin rates and sleeping, and are not suitable for production (great for Backups, but then they are not candidates for spares for your main drives). For these reasons, I do not own any Green Drives.
    Large-enough cache size means the drive can read an entire track in one revolution, so that if you next ask for blocks near the original block you will not wait the average 4.166 milliseconds for the platter to spin halfway around to pick up new data (it is waiting, pre-fetched in the cache). So do not pay extra above about 8Mbytes, but use larger cache size as a tie breaker between equivalent models.

  • I saw the commercial for upgrading to the iphone6 and also chatted with a rep. She explained about the trade in and how it works. The one thing she didnt tell me nor does the commercial is that you have to be eligible for an upgrade. So another wasted tri

    I saw the commercial about upgrading to the iphone6 and also chatted with a rep about it. She explained how the trade in works. Neither she not the commercial says anything about being eligible for an upgrade. So another wasted trip to Verizon. I will be eligible for upgrade in Feb 2015. I have the 5s in excellent condition. If I am willing to extend my contract for another 2 yrs I don't see why it should matter about an upgrade. I think I should be able to trade in and get reduced price. Just another ripoff but at least they could tell you upfront what is expected before a trip is made..

    You don't need to be eligible for an upgrade to take advantage of the trade-in. You can still get the $200 off on the trade in, however I think that offer may have already expired. The $200 off would simply be on the full retail price which starts at $650.
    You have to be eligible for an upgrade to get a discounted phone, but that has ALWAYS been the case. The commercial says NOTHING about waiving that requirement of the contract you had already signed. The trip was wasted ONLY because you were hoping to get out of your contract when NO indication you would be able to do so was given.
    Verizon doesn't "extend" contracts as you would like because Verizon would have people with 10 year contracts and an ETF of over $1000 if they chose to leave. Of course, people would then complain about that.
    Sign a 2 yr contract and have a $350 ETF.
    After a year, you want a new phone and extend the contract 2 years(3 years total now) with another $350 ETF, bringing the ETF up to $350 + $350 - $120 = $580
    After a year, you want a new phone and extend the contract 2 years(4 years total now) with another $350 ETF, bringing the ETF up to $350 + $580 - $120 = $810
    After a year you want a new phone and extend the contract 2 years(5 years total now) with another $350 ETF, bringing the ETF up to $350 + $810 - $120 = $1040.
    ONLY 3 years after signing your original contract someone could easily be locked in with a 5 year contract and a $1040 ETF for a single line. Verizon would be CRAZY to allow people to do this.

  • Ctrl-Alt-CapsLock key remapping not honored

    I have the Ctrl-Alt-CapsLock keys remapped on my Win XP system (using 
    MS PowerToys), but Illustrator (14.0) insists on using the original
    positions of these keys.  Anybody know how can I make Illustrator use
    the remapped positions with the built-in shortcuts, for example, when I press the
    key labelled CTRL, I want it to produce the ALT functionality (as it does in every other
    program I ever installed).

    As a bi-platform user of Adobe software, I know exactly why you'd want to interchange the positions of the left Alt and Ctrl keys.
    Unfortunately, when you use post-driver software (that works by intercepting keyboard interrupts), you put yourself at the mercy of "rogue" programmers -- such as those apparently hired by the Adobe Illustrator engineering department -- who have their own peculiar ideas about how things like this should work.
    My solution might sound radical (and it's not cheap), but it works: Buy a keyboard that enables remapping at the firmware level. An example would be the Avant keyboards -- the descendants of the Northgate OmniKey series -- that not only give you key remapping but also some rudimentary macro programming capabilities. They even come with extra keycaps and a keycap removal tool so that you can, for example, keep the labeling correct on your remapped Ctrl and Alt keys. They use Alps mechanical rather than membrane-type key switches, which is great for someone like me (who does a fair amount of writing and loved the original IBM keyboards)... but I do understand that is a matter of personal preference.
    As an added bonus, your key remaps and macros travel with the keyboard. Plug it into another computer, and all of your customizations are right there, ready to go.
    I'm sorry I don't have an easier answer for you.

  • Satellite 1410-604 - BIOS update Incorrect BIOS update in the web?

    Hi there again!
    Now with a new and weird matter.
    We all know that old say... "If it is not break, don't fix it". And if you put it into more informatic terms, "specially if it is a BIOS".
    Yes, we all know that the BIOS is something quite dellitate to handle. For some reason we normally feel like if we were handling something like nitro-glycerine, or some radioactive product. And this is because we all know what is being put in risk in that moment: our (or sometimes others) computer, the full system could end as dead as some pieces of metal, plastic, and wires.
    Well. I passed through all of that more than ten times in my life, and only once it went wrong. But since that old motherboard was already dead, It was not important. But I allways was EXTREMELY care. I allways cross checked everything before doing anything, allways got a backup and a way to restore that backup... and allways did this in COMPAQ systems, that were prepared that way. Updating a BIOS was just about preparing a disk, turn on the PC with the disk in the diskette drive, and wait. And if you didn't like the results, you simply click "return to previus BIOS" and that was it... very nice. And easy.
    Few days ago, a friend brought me a Toshiba Satellite 1410-604 to solve some issues that were driving him crazy. After removing an expired Norton Internet Security, install avast and scan, I found more than one hundred files infected with a wide variety of virus, malware, trojans, and whatever you could imagine. Avast removed them all, but the remains of the operating system was so unstable that we decide to format and install from scratch.
    I asked for the restoration disks, that obviously he don't have because they were lost in one of his movings. After we got the confirmation from Toshiba reps that there are no recovery disk available for this model, because it is too old, we decided to install from scratch like any other normal PC, and resigned to loose some of the utilities that come with that CDs and that are not available for download in the website.
    I downloaded all of the software available for this model, including two BIOS updates. (Actually only one update, but in two versions: Windows and Traditional), and prepared a CD with all the drivers and programs just like if it were a brand new system install. And everything went very well, no problems at all. Until we got to the Wireless LAN card, but that is another issue that is already solved (the mini PCI card for the WLAN does not support WEP or WAP encription, and it is not possible to connect to any wireless LAN encripted).
    At this point, and when I started configuring and enabling PCMCIA devices, and USB devices (this computer only supports USB 1.1 not 2.0) I discovered this text in the Toshiba Website:
    "This Bios Update adds increased functionality to your system.
    (BIOS is an acronym for Basic Input and Output System. This program is stored in a Read-Only Memory chip on the motherboard.
    When the computer powers up, the BIOS is launched to perform various start-up functions.)
    For detailed update information please refer to Toshiba BIOS-Update Information"
    (you can find this here:
    [http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU] you have to look for:
    Satellite 14xx
    Satellite 1410-604
    Quite specific. Isn't it?)
    According to the information in that same website, the BIOS available fits the following models:
    "Satellite 2410-414, Satellite 1410, Satellite 1410-654S, Satellite 1410-814, Satellite 2410-303, Satellite 2410-304S, Satellite 1410-354, Satellite 2410-601, Satellite 1410-401, {color:#ff0000}*Satellite 1410-604*{color}, Satellite 2410-404, Satellite 1410-301, Satellite 1410-304, Satellite 2410-S403, Satellite Pro 2100, Satellite 1410-S203, Satellite 2410-304, Satellite 1410-554, Satellite 1410-S102, Satellite 1410-354E, Satellite 2410-703, Satellite 1410-303, Satellite 2410-S203, Satellite 1410-801, Satellite 2410-603, Satellite 1410-902, Satellite 1410-313, Satellite 1410-802, Satellite 1410-714, Satellite 2410-354, Satellite 2410-514, Satellite 1410-614, Satellite 1410-704, Satellite 2410-515, Satellite 2410-504, Satellite 2410-702, Satellite 1410-S103"
    Yes... it's there!
    Now, when you go to the "Toshiba BIOS-Update Information", you get:
    "FAQ Ref.: TRO0000000b07
    A BIOS update is a {color:#ff0000}*relatively simple operation and can be carried out by most competent computer users*{color}. All BIOS upgrades can be obtained from "BIOS Update" Download Section click here..
    Note: The BIOS files are machine specific so the correct BIOS for your machine must be used."
    Please note that Toshiba does not disencourage the handling of BIOS, on the contrary: they even encourage people to do so. This is not necessary bad, but at the same time they encourage people to 'play around' with such a delicate matter, at the end of that same page, in little letters they say:
    "Toshiba provides this information "as is" {color:#ff0000}*without warranty of any kind*{color}, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Toshiba shall not be responsible for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. {color:#ff0000}*Toshiba is not liable for any damage caused by the use of any information provided, including information that is incomplete or incorrect*{color}."
    This should trigger yellow alarms in our minds.
    +"Human error is inherent to humans, and it is not possible to erradicate. It will allways appear, sooner or later" (Prof. James Reason).+
    And finally I made the mistake. Even though I read that warning, I remembered all those successfull BIOS update with COMPAQ, and relied in Toshiba. That update was available there, and Toshiba was telling me that it was for this computer. Great!
    So finally I unplugged all devices (USB), removed the PCMCIA (WLAN),plugged the battery charger to avoid any possible battery problem, restarted windows, and then from within windows I started the updater (windows version, as recommended by Toshiba). Everithing looked fine, nothing different of what I used to see on those old COMPAQs.
    As warned by the updating program, the system was going to reboot. And actually it did so.
    Windows closed quite normally (a bit quicker than normal, but without errors, and since there were no other programs than the essentials -even the antivirus was not running-), the computer switched of, all lights off (normal), and then it switched on again...
    {color:#0000ff}*BEEEEEEEEEEEEP... BEEEP... BEEEEP...*{color}
    OMG! I never espected something THAT bad. 3-1-1!
    And now... What a 3-1-1 stands for here? Award BIOS would mean no video card or deffective video card, but it is not true, since it was working up to 20 seconds ago. It must be the BIOS.
    It never came again to life. It is still beeping 3-1-1.
    But now comes the investigation of the human-factors involved in this accident.
    I found I commited the following failures:
    *(1)* To rely in the manufacturer, even though they WROTE their information could be wrong or incomplete. (BAD if I were a QA&QC inspector).
    *(2)* I didn't cross checked deeply enough (until it was already too late).
    *(3)* I didn't looked previously for the way to make a backup of the BIOS, in order to restore should anything go wrong.
    *(4)* Let Toshiba lead me to a path I didn't want to walk, just because of their offer of "increased functionality".
    *(5)* Beleave in Toshiba when they said "relatively simple operation and can be carried out by most competent computer users"... they never said it is failproof.
    Then I started the most interesting part of the investigation.
    {color:#0000ff}*"What went wrong?"*{color}
    Obviously, the BIOS update failed somehow, somewhere. And I wanted to know what and where.
    First thing I discovered was that there are another search engine in Toshiba called "askiris" ([http://askiris.toshiba.com]) and I looked there in order to see if for any chance I could get the old 1.20 BIOS version that was installed originally in that machine.
    And I found something... VERY interesting:

    Flash BIOS version 1.40 for Satellite 1410
    This BIOS is applicable to the following models:
    Satellite 1410-S105
    Satellite 1410-S106
    Satellite 1410-S173
    Satellite 1410-S174
    Satellite 1410-S175
    Satellite 1410-S176

    Satellite 1415-S106
    Satellite 1415-S115
    Satellite 1415-S173
    Satellite 1415-S174
    Satellite 1415-S175
    Satellite 1415-S176
    Satellite 2410-S203
    Satellite 2410-S204"
    Please note that the model 1410-604 is *NOT* listed.
    I thought "well, it must be another archive..."
    But then I realized of a name that sounds familiar, it was there, in the directory where I uncompressed this 1.40 file, and the name is:
    So I took the other file, the BIOS_Win update, and I discovered that the file name is:
    *{color:#0000ff}2410A9V140.EXE{color}* (Ups!)
    So I uncompressed it again, to find:

    Then another question arised in my mind: What about the other 1.40 file? What does the other 2410A9V140.EXE have inside?

    *{color:#ff0000}They both have 20 files, and 1,046,461 bytes. I asumed they are both the SAME file{color}*.
    And the readme file does not list the model 1410-604 in its readme file, therefore I cannot explain this except as a mistake from Toshiba. *{color:#ff0000}They put an incorrect BIOS in their website, and suggested the update, and somehow leaded to this kind of errors.{color}*
    (Except in the case that one of those models is a different name of the 1410-604 model, and if it is the case... now I don't know why this BIOS do not work with this computer).
    The worst part is that neither of those other files (V1.10, 1.20 and 1.30) lists the 1410-604, therefore there seems no possible workaround for this problem. I need an original v1.20 for this CMOS, and Toshiba seems not to have it. They offered me to solve the problem, by leaving the notebook at an ASP, and paying only 95&euro; for the work and about 280&euro; for a motherboard replacement, I will get it solved. But they offer no warranty of their possibilities because is a model 'too old' and 'discontinued' and with 'no support'...
    In other words, they said "don't bother with this, just go out there and buy a new one" (something absolutely out of my scope in this crisis-time) :P
    Thank you for reading soooo far.
    Now what I need is to get any ideas of a workaround for this, my ideas are:
    (1) This CMOS has a boot-part that still works (it allows a roll-back if you have the appropriate file). So I need a good BIOS to burn into the CMOS, from the VERY SAME model (a BIOS backup) but the backup must be adequate for the burning program (CHGBIOSA.COM).
    (2) It is still possible that the BIOS could be OK but the data on the CMOS got somehow corrupted. If so, clearing the CMOS could solve de problem. But I was not able to find a clear cmos button from outside, and after disasembling I took of the battery, with no good results. I have to try leaving the MOBO without battery for longer period (I left it about 20 seconds) just in case 20 seconds don't allow all the capacitors to fully go to zero values. I have not much hope in this point.
    (3) Try to get a REAL good update from Toshiba. I contacted several times technical support, and I was able to verify they are only phone-operators, with a script in front of them, and when the problem goes-out-of-scope they fall always in the same answer: "you have to go to an ASP". I still have a low hope to find someone who really knows a bit, and could enlighten with a good BIOS to put in this disks.
    (4) As far as I could find, this BIOS is not from any known BIOS-maker. It seems it has been developed by Toshiba (own brand), therefore the Crisis Recovery Disk from Phoenix will not be of any help here. As well as any other BIOS recovery tool not designed for Toshiba's BIOS. But I'm open to any ideas, that could be tested more or less safely. (Remember that the 'BIOS-BOOT-PART' feature is still working, I don't want to loose this only possibility of redemption).
    Wwwaaaaoooowww... what a long-post falks! Sorry for that!
    Forgive me, but I wanted to be really clear.
    Should anyone give some hints or advice, will be greatly appreciated.
    Please don't say what I shouldn't do... I already know that. I already researched and already found my mistakes, in order not to repeat them. Now I need to move on, to advance, and to try to solve this, or at least learn how to solve similar things. As much as possible.
    Thank you again, in advance, and sorry again.
    Message was edited by: Fenix_D
    Changed subject to beter reflect what is the matter about (apparently erroneous BIOS file in Toshiba download center).

    Well.<br />
    <br />
    It's not dead, certainly.<br />
    <br />
    The steps that I put in my procedure were:<br />
    <br />
    --&gt; There are two memory sims, that I am going to identify as M1 and M2<br />
    --&gt; There are two memory banks, that I am going to identify as A and B<br />
    <br />
    Next step in order to identify if there are some module or bank that is not working properly are:<br />
    <br />
    The modules were installed as:<br />
    <br />
    M1 --&gt; A<br />
    M2 --&gt; B<br />
    <br />
    <strong>1--&gt; Boot without any memory chip.</strong><br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; X<br />
    B--&gt; X<br />
    <br />
    <strong>2--&gt; Boot with ONE module</strong><br />
    <br />
    A--&gt;M1<br />
    B--&gt;X<br />
    <br />
    <strong>3--&gt; Boot with the OTHER module</strong><br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; X<br />
    B--&gt; M2<br />
    <br />
    <strong>4--&gt; Boot with BOTH modules swapped:</strong><br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; M2<br />
    B--&gt; M1<br />
    <br />
    <strong>5--&gt; Boot with ONE module swapped:</strong><br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; M2<br />
    B--&gt; X<br />
    <br />
    <strong>6--&gt; Boot with the OTHER module swapped:</strong><br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; X<br />
    B--&gt; M1<br />
    <br />
    At this point I got a great difference. It booted, finally. But in order to make a diagnostic, I have to complete the full test, and the results were:<br />
    <br />
    1--&gt; Boot without any memory chip.<br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; X<br />
    B--&gt; X<br />
    <br />
    <strong>NOT BOOTING</strong> Actually the computer not even tries to read the disk. Only the power led turns on, but even prior to press the 'on/off' button. I think this indicates 'no memory installed'. I would have expected a post failure beeps, but there were no beeps at all.<br />
    <br />
    2--&gt; Boot with ONE module<br />
    <br />
    A--&gt;M1<br />
    B--&gt;X<br />
    <br />
    <strong>BOOTED NORMALLY</strong> Well. This obviously means that the 3-1-1 beep code means memory error, or one bank failing of two installed. Now I didn't know if the problem was the module, or the bank B.<br />
    <br />
    3--&gt; Boot with the OTHER module<br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; X<br />
    B--&gt; M2<br />
    <br />
    <strong>NOT BOOTING</strong> Just like the condition in 1. Like no memory installed, therefore there are two possibilities: The bank B is not working, or the memory module M2 is not working.<br />
    <br />
    4--&gt; Boot with BOTH modules swapped:<br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; M2<br />
    B--&gt; M1<br />
    <br />
    <strong>NOT BOOTING</strong> Just like previous to test condition. Beep code 3-1-1, no boot at all.<br />
    <br />
    5--&gt; Boot with ONE module swapped:<br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; M2<br />
    B--&gt; X<br />
    <br />
    <strong>NOT BOOTING</strong> This was the important test, because it finally let me determine that the problem is at the module 2 (M2) not at the bank B. But still there could be a failure IN THE BANK B and IN THE MEMORY MODULE 2. Have to do the other test.<br />
    <br />
    6--&gt; Boot with the OTHER module swapped:<br />
    <br />
    A--&gt; X<br />
    B--&gt; M1<br />
    <br />
    <strong>BOOTING NORMALLY</strong> This really confirmed there is nothing wrong with ANY bank, but one of the modules is not working, actually is not being even detected. This is quite weird, because this computer was working perfectly with those two modules, and in the moment of the BIOS upgrade it seems to fail... How come?<br />
    <br />
    Something weird happened here. I don't know what, but something ruined one memory module (fortunately only one), what I would like to know now is what happened. But at least I have the machine running, with very low memory, but running.<br />
    <br />
    What I am thinking now is what about this BIOS upgrade makes the motherboard not to recognize one of the modules for some reason?<br />
    <br />
    <img class="jive-emoticon" src="images/emoticons/happy.gif" border="0" alt=":)" /><br />
    <br />
    I will continue my research, but certainly the memory made the difference.<br />
    <br />
    I am not sure why I didn't discover this before, I think I didn't perform this test before, for two reasons:<br />
    <br />
    (1) I tried to boot with no memory, and this was impossible, so I assumed that the problem was not at the memory.<br />
    <br />
    (2) When I heard the beep code (3-1-1), somewhere I read it was a video problem, and I asume most probably it was a video problem (since no video at all was being displayed) but I should have take into consideration that Phoenix BIOS also means with the same 3-1-1 a DMA problem (memory problem).<br />
    <br />
    Okis... It's a pitty having to wait so much between a post and it's approval. I posted my answer two days ago, and since it didn't appear, I believe It didn't upload, so I replied again, and also didn't appeared... until now. It is obvious that a moderator approval is required. That's why I have to wait 24 hours or more to read my post. This slows this forum effectiveness.<br />
    <br />
    Thank you very much for your help. I'll keep you informed. Until we get to a final diagnosis and solution.

  • A problem with my mail in 10.8, crashes on scrolling down a PDF doc

    Hey guys,
    I've spent 2 1/2 hours on the phone today attempting to resolve this issue, fingers crossed an answer may be out there.
    When I attached a PDF doc to an email, it embeds in the message, no dramas does take a little while to load it on, then when I scroll down the email to make sure it's the correct doc, the spinning curser of death shows and then 3-4 seconds later the email scrolls down but slowly loads sections of the PDF.  At times the mail app crashes when it does this.
    It doesn't matter about the file size or amount of pages (one page 87kb, or 10mb 6 pages) it always 'skips' or 'freezes' even on sent items.
    I have:
    unistalled Adobe, through my PDF's are all controlled by Preview
    rebooted in safe mode etc and run by another user
    done the whole CNTRL, OPT, SHIFT, P, R thing
    hold down P and PWR and waited for 2 beeps
    plus everything else
    New to MacBook etc and I'm about to throw it as I can't opperate like this and costs me deals!
    Any help, hints etc would be appreciated.

    Hi - I'd guess that the adapter you bought is the problem ...do you have another to try? Also, having a guitar cable plugged into an 1/8in. adapter into your Macbook isn't the greatest situation as it really doesn't take a lot of cable movement for there to be a LOT of pressure on that small jack - which could easily screw up the insides. If you do try another adapter I'd suggest one with a longish/small cable attached so that you can plug your guitar in and not have any force on the jack at all.
    I too can get a signal this way (I have active pickups), and when I switch to the Macbook's speakers as the output the signal is delayed quite a bit. I use (and really recommend) the Griffin iMic for any real work with Garageband or the laptop in general - the USB signal is better, the cable doesn't pose a problem (as mentioned above) and if you're looking to record other sounds it can handle both line and mic levels ...and of course the price is great. The next real step up from this is a firewire interface of some type.

  • Adobe CS5.5 Master Collection not installing and @AdobeCare don't help!

    This is WHY Adobe is the biggest RIP OFF ever.
    I bought a copy of CS5.5 Master Collection at an auction (Bought for just over 2k) everything sealed and fine, got it home installed it on my iMac and everything was gravy.
    Used for around year and half, then I moved from Alberta to Ontario, so everything was packed and then unpacked and reset up, as I did a clean of my Mac when I got here and went to install all my software and applications again, and sure enough BAM!!! That's when it happened.
    It would not install.
    Now I have contacted Adobe "Don't" Care about a previous issue I had with another piece of software that they messed me around on that software was only $200 and after becoming very pissed of at them for giving me the run around having to go on live chat 4 times and then resulting to twitting the sh*t out them stating how crappy they were I all of a sudden had someone contact me and finally contact me assisted on getting that software working again.
    However this more expensive piece of software they haven't give two craps about.
    I would love any so called "smart" Adobe worker fill me in on this.
    If something works perfect for a year and half or 3 months because you guys are "so" on top of things right is shouldn't matter about the time frame, when you get either a system crash, reinstall, new computer or sell the system and when loading the software back on the somputer and it's  not working...ready simple question WHY NOT!
    Clearly people have stated that bootleg copies of the serials are out on the internet for anyone to get right, but when a person has spent a F load of cash on a NON Stolen or Copied version with proof of purchase with pictures of receipt and evidence that they have been using the same F'ing serial this whole time, how can you not HELP!
    Oh wait I think I know and by my sarcasm you guessed it, it's cause you already got my cash right!
    So when do I get compensation for being messed around by Adobe? because the run around I have had by Adobe staff, for a product that is legit and been in use for a year and half and then flat out not working..will Adobe care? NO Adobe doesn't give a flying F about no one and especially it's customers.
    Am I pissed yes!
    Am I frustrated yes!
    Will adobe fix the crap and give 100% customer service NO!
    For all the readers out there THIS is the reason Adobe try to get people to do their $50 a month crap for everything.... @AdobeCare you SUCK!
    In a market where there is so many more choices I will always refer people to those, like Sony Vegas Pro, Coral ect.

    ranting is all people are left to do Ned, because getting help from Adobe clearly takes so much effort. Are you an Adobe worker? Are you a specialist? because that is why its a rant because after explaining my problem so many times to so many people via different methods THAT IS WHY IT IS A RANT! because all that is asked is can you please let us know your problem, then that person who clearly doesn't make notes decides to put you on hold via Live chat and then the chat goes dead you have to explain it ALL OVER AGAIN!!!
    So I will explain it in simple terms for you.
    1) That disc is what was bought
    2) When I went to reinstall the product when I moved and after doing a clean up of my Mac it asks for the serial
    3) I entered the serial
    4) The serial worked fine (You know the green tick)
    5) After the hour or so wait to finalize I waited and opened Photoshop
    6) That was the message you see that I got
    7) I the tested another app and I got the same thing.
    After this I contacted Adobe and was on a chat case number 0214839318 which may I ad HAS ALL OF THIS IN DETAIL.
    this of course was NOT the end, I was asked to show proof which is what you can see!
    Oh and Ned guess what....NO HELP!
    There in detail!

  • Phone line and broadband dropping

    I have asked this question before why does my line keep dropping about once a week both my phone and broadband lights goes off then on again a few seconds later.  Does my router need cooling down cannot clean inside it as I have had it for a few years.  This only seems to happen during the summer months ie June- August it all started when my contract was up for renewal no it is up for renewal May.  Tried ringing up the help the other day when I could not connect, half an hour later after trying the BT Voyager one and still not connect was told they would send a new hub, so I switched of my router and restarted it 10 minutes later and was able to connect. So now I have a new hub which I have not used. 
    So why does the line drop every few days do I need to pay £190 for an engineeer to give me a new extension or what as I did the extension and connection myself inclusing the box .  I have never had an engineer in the house they have been outside as I have the pole outside my window, so can anyone help?

    You need to access your Home Hub directly, it does not matter about the Belkin router as its only acting as an additional wireless access point.
    Go to This will show your home hub DSL connection.
    I have the original home hub and takes me to the page giving all of the DSL information. This is probably different if you have a new home hub, you may have to look through the nenue options.
    What you are looking for is the downstream S/N ratio, it is usually between 6 and 20 db. The lower it is, the more likely your connection will disconnect.
    There are some useful help pages here, for BT Broadband customers only, on my personal website.

  • Oracle database x86 installation error

    Dear Oracle DB expert,
    i am not sure it has been answer before, as I have tried to search from historical question in this forum but could not have answer. The question is I have a testing database server, I have follow all the step from preparation to start installation. The installation database went well from checking to copy all file but fail at linking stage: The error is :
    Error in invoking target 'client_sharedlib' of makefile '/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/network/lib/ins_net_client.mk'
    When I check the log the error for further infor is "

    Oracle VirtualBox
    Solaris 10 32-bit i386 kernel
    Oracle db : 10202_database_solx86
    I am not sure about the problem above, when I tried to get the answer from google some of them mention related with the not match between O/S with Oracle database. Is it because 10202_database_solx86 is for 64 bit? So the installation could not be happened?
    Or I have missed some steps of installation therefore get those errors?
    Please give me assistant on this matter about the problem I have. I am planning to move to Solaris 64 bit environtment but I could not affort to buy test environtment for 64 bit at the moment.
    Thanks and Regards,

  • External drive for Time Machine and Firewire Hub

    Just got a new iMac. My old iMac G5 was running 10.4.11 so no Time Machine. On the new iMac I am running 10.5.6 I find I have questions about how to go about making best use of this new facility available to me. Since my new iMac has only one firewire port (FW 800) I also need an additional port here.
    My thoughts are to use an external drive connected with FW 800 as a Time Machine backup and use the (usually) extra FW 800 port to extend the FW 800 and I find I can get a dual interface drive with both FW 800 and FW 400, so I could use the FW 400 for FW 400 devices like other FW 400 drives and my video camera.
    Currently I use SuperDuper to make clone backups of my HD on a weekly basis (I use 2 drives for this on a rotating basis). I plan to continue that in addition to the facility offered by Time Machine (on a separate drive).
    My questions are...
    Is it a good idea to use the extra FW 800 or 400 port on an external to connect other drives to use for clone BUs?
    If that is a good idea...
    What brand and size of drive to use for the Time Machine BU (FW 400/800 sharing)
    A. Maxtor?
    (I have several OneTouch II and OneTouch III that I use for clones, I have been using them for a few years without problem. I seem to remember reading about some problems with Maxtor, have I just been lucky?)
    B. Newertech MiniStack v3 from OWC MacSales?
    C. OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro™?
    If the OWC Mercury Eltite is a good choice...
    Is a 750 GB large enough?
    Is it worth it to get the 1TB Enterprise 7200RPM?
    Any other suggestions?

    i needed 3 drives in total so went with my 2nd choice of buying external enclosures and then hard drives,
    at the end it cost me much much less so i endded up buy another as a spare,
    so currently using 4 NexStart combo enclosure each one fitted with a 500gb hard drive,
    i got one connected to my G5 and 3 connected by FW400 to my imac through a daisy chain,
    for time machines it doesnt matter about speed so you dont need to use up the FW800 Port,
    FW400 will be fine,
    before this i had a USB2 WD Book and was using that with time machine and never had a problem through USB,
    i always connect to a port i hardly use as i wont ever need to keep taking it off if i had to connect my camera to it for example....

  • What's wrong with my JavaScript?

    My site works perfectly in Firefox, but when viewed in IE6,
    my Flash video and buttons in the body of the homepage aren't
    there. When I view the source, they show up but I can't see them on
    the page. I don't know much (or anything, for that matter) about
    JavaScript, just basic HTML. I didn't write any JavaScript, but
    there is a folder containing script for the flash. It's the same on
    all pages and only the homepage flash isn't showing up.
    Is there anything I can do to fix this problem? Thanks so
    much for any help.

    see first of all if u keep same name for the check boxes more than one then it makes an array of the check boxes....then either u have to iterate them(check boxes) via for loop and access them thru their index number...for e.g.....if (!document.uploadservlet.channel[0].checked)
