Intel vga driver 865GBF For Windows 7 and VISTA

Intel 865 VGA(Video) Drivers for Windows 7 & Vista
Intel have stop the Windows7 VGA drive for Motherboard 865GBF at their website , only you can download upto XP,
Now there is way to RUN VGA at Windows 7 or VISTA.

1.Download the latest Windows XP driver for the intel 865 graphic card. (I used the XP Professional version) download
2. After extracting the driver (I recommend the .zip file over the .exe), go to "Device Manager" in Vista or Windows 7.
  • Easiest way to get there is "Win key + pause/break" -> "Device Manager"...
  • Second easiest way is to click "Start", right click "Computer" -> "Properties" -> "Device Manager"
  • Third way is to fumble around in the control panel until you find it... good luck...
3. Click on the arrow to the left of "Display Adapters" and you should see the "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" drop down.

4. Right click on the "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" and choose "Update Driver Software"

5. Choose "Browse my computer for driver software"
6. Choose "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
7. Find the "Have Disk" button (lower right corner) and click on it

8. Browse to the location where you extracted the Intel 865 XP driver zip file and go into the win2000 folder, then choose "Open"

9. You should see a driver in the main box now, that says it's for the Intel 865 Graphic Adapter. Choose "Next" and it will begin the driver installation.

10. Once the driver is installed, reboot and you are all done!

New Data Storage Density 3.3 Terabits per Square inch

New Data Storage Density 3.3 Terabits per Square inch

Table salt multiplies hard disk space six times

Scientists in Singapore have developed a surprising use for ordinary salt that they say could help deal with the increasingly quantities of data that companies and individuals are creating and storing.

Table salt multiplies hard disk space six times

Their new manufacturing process, involving simple sodium chloride, can boost the capacity of computer hard disks by six times. The discovery was made by Singapore's national research institution the Agency for Science Technology and Research, in collaboration with the National University of Singapore and the Data Storage Institute. The agencies have "developed a process that can increase the data recording density of hard disks to 3.3 Terabits per square inch, six times the recording density

How to find the hard disk capacity

This post is about how to find the hard disk capacity.

1- In Linux
command of Linux or Uinux
It will show complete detail of your hard drive partion , so you will calculate all , it will show around 9 GB it below exemple
fdisk -l /dev/hdaDisk /dev/hda: 60.0 GB, 60011642880 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 7296 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id
/dev/hda1 1 141 1132551 a0 IBM Thinkpad hibernation
/dev/hda2 * 142 3789 29302560 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda3 3790 3806 136552+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 3807 7296 28033425 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 3807 3931 1004031 82 Linux swap
/dev/hda6 3932 7296 27029331 83 Linux

you can do
9097125888 bytes

9 GB partitioned space with no gaps between partitions.
The actual disk capacity would be

(16065 * 512) x 1106 = 9097159680 bytes

9 GB

2-In Winodws XP
  1. Click the Start button in the Taskbar’s lower left corner.
  2. In the menu that pops up, click My Computer to open the window.
  3. Click on the Local Disk (C:). The hard drive’s size is at the bottom of the blue bar on the left of the window.
  4. If it it is not displayed, click Details. The hard drive’s size in GB and how much of that space is unused (Free Space) is under Total Size.
3 in Windows 7

First Double-click on the "My Computer" icon, located on your desktop. This will open the new "My Computer" window
Then selected the C drive if you have only one parttation of Hard Drive. If you have two or more then you have to calculate one by one both.
Right-click on your hard drive icon and select "Properties". This will open a window that displays all the information that you need about your Hard Disk, along with a pie chart illustration.
