Flash Memory Data Recovery Guide

A corrupted memory card with a full day's worth of photos on it is a nightmare... trust me. Recovering those photo's is possible, but only if you read the latest PCSTATS Beginners Guide on the subject.

On the review front, Nvidia's Geforce 6150 offers up integrated graphics which aren't half bad, as you'll see in this Foxconn 6150K8MA motherboard review. The Epox 9NPA+ is another great nForce 4 SLI solution worth looking at, and while we had plans to face it off against an ATI Crossfire Edition board, its manufacturer wasn't too keen on sharing ATI's current level of "popularity." On the value side, Albatron have introduced a really affordable PC6600LEQ videocard for those of us that need to watch every penny. Lastly, Corsair has a 2GB bundle of PC4400 DDR memory in black heatspreaders. Give it a read and let me know what you think!

Beginners Guides: Flash Memory Data Recovery and Protection
Continue on...

The flash memory-based USB key has become commonplace faster than just about any other computer peripheral in recent memory. But despite all their obvious advantages, USB drives and other flash memory devices like compact flash and SD cards are not without some problems and pitfalls of their own. In this Beginners Guide, PCSTATS is going to look at how flash memory works, what can go wrong with it, and how to recover and protect your data in case the worst does happen.Continue Here>>

Continue on...

With the release of the nVIDIA's GeForce 6100-series chipsets, enthusiasts now have a high powered integrated option that does not well... suck. Foxconn is one of the first manufacturers to release an GeForce 6100-series motherboard, and the 6150K8MA-8EKRS specifically uses the best of class nVidia GeForce 6150 iteration and nVidia nForce 430 Southbridge.

Epox EP-9NPA+ SLI Motherboard Review
Continue on...

The Epox 9NPA+ SLI supports any current and future socket 939 AMD Athlon64 processor and is based on the Nvidia nForce4 SLI chipset with support for up to 4GB of PC3200 DDR memory. We will get into the specifics a bit later but on board goodies consist of Gigabit LAN, IEEE 1394a, 7.1 channel audio and an additional Serial ATA II/RAID controller. A set of nice quality rounded cables are bundled in with the package, and we find two sets of IDE cables, and one FDD cable encased in white rubber sleeving.Continue Here>>

Albatron PC6600LEQ Videocard Review
Continue on...

The Albatron PC6600LEQ videocard is teamed up with 256MB of memory, it supports TV-Output and since it is passively cooled, does not generate any noise at all. The RAMDAC on the Albatron PC6600LEQ runs at 400 MHz and will provide a crisp 2D display all the way up to 2048x1536 @ 85 Hz. The Albatron PC6600LEQ is pretty plane; a compact blue PCB with large (single slot) passive heatsink that makes it ideal for HTPC or SFF PC use. Like all modern videocards, the PC6600 LEQ supports dual monitors. It does not ship with a DVI to analog converter however.

Corsair TwinX2048-4400 PRO PC4400 DDR Memory Review
Continue on...

A total of 1GB of system memory is no longer enough for enthusiastic gamers if we are to believe some recent articles on the web which look specifically at how the game Battlefield 2 handles. Nope, 2GB is the new "1GB," and memory manufacturers are scrambling to make sure their customers know this. Corsair's new 2GB (2x 1024MB modules) TwinX2048-4400 PRO DDR RAM aims to make you "ooh" and "ahhh," so let's begin...Continue Here>>

Beginners Guides: Website Hosting With Apache

PCSTATS recently published a much-requested guide to hosting your very own website using Microsoft's IIS web hosting software. Though feedback from that article has made us realize that we'd left a large cross-section of users hanging in limbo. When it comes to the Internet as a whole, Apache may actually be the preferred web hosting technology, since most professional web hosting operations use versions of Apache on the Linux operating system to host commercial client websites. In this Beginners Guide, PCSTATS is going to walk you through setting up a personal website on the web using Apache web server for Windows. Continue Here>>

Samsung Showroom Photo Tour 2005
Continue on...

PCSTATS recently headed out to the Samsung Canada offices for a briefing. While we were there, we took the opportunity to snap a couple pictures of the companies brand new showroom which houses the latest Samsung products to hit the Canadian retail market. The large showroom is built to impress, and aside from the abundance of 42" plasma and LCD screens hanging off of virtually every wall surface. For anyone who has never had the opportunity to walk the expansive floors of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES, the following photo-tour is a nice treat. Continue Here>>

PCstats Weekly Tech Tips: Locking Out TCP/IP Settings
This tip is for all the over worked network administrators; do you manage a small static network with IP addresses that never change? Why not lock out the ability to change TCP/IP settings completely, it can make your life easier.

Locking out the ability to change TCP/IP settings is easy, we'll need to load up the Group Policy editor (click Start -> Run then type gpedit.msc and press the OK button) and follow this path User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Network connections. In the right hand window find the Prohibit TCP/IP advanced configuration option and double click on it. Change its value to Enabled, press the OK button and exit the Group Policy Editor. After that's done, users cannot modify their TCP/IP settings even if they have administrative rights.
