I'm on the verge of replacing the eMachine that went poof after seven good years of use, using a Sempron 145 inside one of these:
Have all the parts, just need a cool day and a little ambition!
However for the future workstation and other copy of my 130.....
I know we've talked about hyper threading and multi-core ad infinitum [sp?]
but has anyone tried this registry fix and does it work?
" This version of MyHD has File Play Mode, which is specific to the type
of hardware used. The meaning of FPM is as follows:
FPM0 - auto detect (single CPU => 3, multi-CPU or hyper-threading => 4)
FPM1 - original mode
FPM2 - for multi-CPU or hyper-threading
FPM3 - to avoid lock-up on VIA or I865/875
FPM4 - 2 + 3
The application default value is FPM0. You can change it by editing the
following registry value.
The registry merge file in this folder can be used by those unfamiliar
with editing their registry. Double-click the corresponding file. "
I found this in a text file on the original installation disk from one unit
in a folder called FPM.
Is it as simple as substituting zeros for numbers or their binary equivalent?
(gads..its been over a decade since I had to use binary)
Say for FPM4 change dword to 00001111 [if i even got that right.
Or is this strictly for files and not DVD playback? In which case just leaving it in
auto detect would be the best course.
If I'm being asinine, please forgive me, I should be in bed now getting ready for a 12 hour shift.
(and I just adopted a new kitten and she's wearing me out)
