    I just got a new centrino laptop and I am having issues loading NC capture.

    I loaded version 4 and attempted to lauch it an recieved a Blue Screen of Death. Downloaded the 4.2.1 update, attempted to install it but it will not finish installing without a BSOD.

    Any ideas?

    I think that is it. I've disabled DEP and will reload capture.



    I don't claim to know everything. :)  Thought I would have a better chance of getting a quick answer if I asked, plus if anyone else has this problem its in the database on the cafe.

    :)  The amount of knowledge here is just amazing.

    Cheers everyone!

    I had a computer consulting business for 6 years, after my "retirement",
    and before that had 10 years experience "troubleshooting" computers.

    The strange thing is that when I went to see a client my mind put itself
    into a special "gear" and I was able to "work miracles".

    BUT(!), when something screws up in my own computer I react the way
    most people do: Anger, Panic, Frustration and I have to try and settle
    myself down and look at the problem with a detached view. I guess that's
    why doctors should not normally treat their own loved ones.
  6. Patrick, my post was in jest.

    I was the Professor in charge of the computer shop in my department at the university for several years before I retired, but I still have to rely on those guys from time-to-time to bail me out. :lol:
  7. P.S. Why do my and Patrick's posts not wrap around (at least on my browser) but Ken-L's does?

    I knew that Pa. No worries :) 

    I'm not sure why our posts do that. v1.2 of the cafe doesn't have this problem.

    But, more about the issue I was having with the new laptop.

    Ken pointed me in the direction of Data Execution Prevention. There was a setting in the bios to disable that. However I was still having the same problem. I read up on DEP and found that XP SP2 has the option to disable completely, this feature. If you want to call it a feature. :)  I read this knowledge base article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875352

    I ended up modifing the boot.ini setting noexecute=AlwaysOff

    Once I did that, it disables all DEP and I was good to go.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    Because Ken inserts manual line breaks with the Enter-Key
    when he sees that the lines are not breaking automatically.

    It was caused by having a very long URL in one thread.
  10. I was also putting in line breaks with the enter key. I'm sure it's the gargantuan URL in your earlier post.
