Dell inspiron m6400 retail

19 April 2012 - 05:18 AM

Can someone help me it here?

I've tried everything I can think of to get the retail disk to load, but everyone it stops and pci config end.

I've disabled every empty slot in the bios, I've booted with npci=0x2000 and/our pcirootuid=1/0, even -x.. Nothing works.

Everyone, sticks at pci config end.

Core 2 duo 2.93
4GB ddr4
250GB Sata Hdd
nvidia quadro fx 2700m
Sata DVD rw
I boot + retail 10.6.3


Comcast Blocks InsanelyMac?

12 April 2012 - 07:54 PM

So, i've noticed from time to time that when I'm at home (comcast business class internet) Every now and then, I lose access completely to Insanely Mac. I know it isn't just the computer I'm using, cause nothing else on the network can do it either. I don't htink it's the router, cause after a reset of the router, it's still the same result. Only thing that seems to fix it is completely resetting the network, starting with the modem then the router. Anyone else experience anything like this?
