Laptop battery no longer gets charged by Yousuf Khan[_2_]
I got an older model laptop running XP, it's a Gateway MX6440, which is about 6 or 7 years old now. I keep it around to run older software which may not have been ported to Windows 7. Just recently I noticed that it's no longer charging its battery. The battery is just over 1 year old, and it...

doscall1 by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard
maybe he can successfully shed some more light on this subject. Here are some more basics, just so that we're all on the same page: * In theory one can have multiple I/O APICs in a system. In practice, on the sorts of systems we're talking about here, there's only going to be one. It lives...

Enabling SMP by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard
My machine is NOT configured to support ACPI, however, setting my BIOS to ACPI enabled and using MPS map 1.4 seems to produce an otherwise pretty darn stable system. So you have ACPI disabled even though having it enabled is more stable? The last time around, M. Piatkowski said APIC,...

timers by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard
BTW, I think ACPI offers an additional timer that could be used for this purpose.At least Windows seems to go this route in it's implemenation of the DosTmrXXX equivalents. It's not ACPI. It's the hardware. There are three major "timer" interrupt sources in a modern PC machine: channel #0...

FF and SM with Native Printing Support by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard
3) the BIOS allows me to select APIC & IOAPIC, both are selected, even though I do not run ACPI It's easy to confuse ACPI with APIC, but the twain are quite different things. Enabling local APICs and I/O APICs is what one wants with an SMP operating system. (Strictly speaking, if one...

ACPI FIXVW2 4-20-2011 a regression? by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard
/APIC doesn't work at all without /SMP on same line. It is just ignored without it. Are you sure of this statement? I thought that /APIC vs /PIC had to do with how interrupts are routed and that /APIC only makes sense on mother boards that support the more up-to-date interrupt...

A limit on number of USB hubs in Windows 7? by Yousuf Khan[_2_]
I've got three 4-port hubs on my system. From time to time after a reboot, some of them don't enumerate properly, and you have to unplug and replug them. Is there some way in software to get Windows to rescan them? Of course that won't do any good if the USB hub that your mouse and keyboard are...
