any windows xp i installed hdd speed it’s 4mb

I come here because i have a weird problem, i install xp but ever i run updates even cloudy or locally the system disk and network transfer lock in 3 to 4MBps.

if ran hiren’s minixp the transfer of the disk its normal (around 60MBps) thats confirm its software issue.

discarded drivers because i reinstalled arround 15 times in a week and dont install to reduce the posibilities, i dont running an antivirus yet but i start to belive in that cause maybe.

(long history) my desktop die a few monts, because the mobo stops boot, i’m electronic tech so i try to fix it but not joy yet, i recover an very oldie asrock ddr1 agp mobo (775i65g) have 768 mb of ram, and nvidia fx5200 all pieces with new caps, upgraded bios and the system drive its a oldie too hitachi 80gb PATA drive (yes ide) with little 1.5mb of cache, but, i test the drive with victoria hdd in hirens and have a read linear average speed that said earlier, even with partition and disk to disk transfer with teracopy (hitachi 1tb sata 3 in same mobo) i get the same speed being bootleneck the pata drive, so i install xp, align partition with minitool partition wizard and boot en less 40 seconds the first times (no count bios boot because took almost 30 secs to give me video, because its oldie) i desfragment and boot fast like any new win7 pc, obviously i cant try 7 in this mobo, 1 ram 2 i dont have cds or dvds to burn, and its a pain install usb but its the way i using and isn’t compatible at all in this way, so install office programs drivers, even great, i using a offline windows update tool called wsus offline (version 9.2.4 esr thats support xp) and then install the 110-140 updates, after install .net when reboot.

Fails begin, i detected with a monitor soft named moo0 system monitor, its very handy, and customizable, i set to show I/O speed of every drive an header search time (same the hhd light do) and before this run equal like hirens mini xp, but after i have just 4MB read and write speed in system disk, doing same disk to disk file transfer in any way do the same and runing a network file transfer behaves equal even the network folder is in slave data disk (1tb) and disk to disk betwen data disk whenever pata or sata this not happend.

even i downloaded the updates directly windows update i finish in same situation, the only thing i dont try yet its install and download everything to discard rootkit or virus related, without any data disk connected.

any reference could help, and sorry i dont native english speaker.

and i even try actually wepos ready 2009 over xp, its a little less painfull override the incompatibility of usb install.

Is it possible to make the shutter speed slower than 30 seconds on the Canon 4000D?

I have a Canon 4000D and I would like to take some long exposure photography. It only allows shutter speeds up to 30 seconds and I would prefer to have the ability to take shots that are exposed for 1 minute or more. Is it possible? I’m OK with using 3rd party software like CHDK if I have to.

Ubuntu with Ryzen 2500u Processor speed capped at 2GHz

My processor does not runs at its full clock speed on Ubuntu, I also tried it on Arch Distros like Manjaro and faced the same issue. Below are the details of my system and what I have tried till now.

I installed Ubuntu 18.04

4.15.0-43-generic alongside of Windows 10 Home on

Acer Swift 3 SF315-41

The Max CPU speed and other beginner details are as follows:

 Architecture:        x86_64 CPU op-mode(s):      32-bit, 64-bit Byte Order:          Little Endian CPU(s):              8 On-line CPU(s) list: 0-7 Thread(s) per core:  2 Core(s) per socket:  4 Socket(s):           1 NUMA node(s):        1 Vendor ID:           AuthenticAMD CPU family:          23 Model:               17 Model name:          AMD Ryzen 5 2500U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx Stepping:            0 CPU MHz:             1574.846 CPU max MHz:         2000.0000 CPU min MHz:         1600.0000 BogoMIPS:            3992.66 Virtualization:      AMD-V L1d cache:           32K L1i cache:           64K L2 cache:            512K L3 cache:            4096K NUMA node0 CPU(s):   0-7 Flags:               fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush mmx fxsr sse sse2 ht syscall nx mmxext fxsr_opt pdpe1gb rdtscp lm constant_tsc rep_good nopl nonstop_tsc cpuid extd_apicid aperfmperf pni pclmulqdq monitor ssse3 fma cx16 sse4_1 sse4_2 movbe popcnt aes xsave avx f16c rdrand lahf_lm cmp_legacy svm extapic cr8_legacy abm sse4a misalignsse 3dnowprefetch osvw skinit wdt tce topoext perfctr_core perfctr_nb bpext perfctr_llc mwaitx hw_pstate sme ssbd ibpb vmmcall fsgsbase bmi1 avx2 smep bmi2 rdseed adx smap clflushopt sha_ni xsaveopt xsavec xgetbv1 xsaves clzero irperf xsaveerptr arat npt lbrv svm_lock nrip_save tsc_scale vmcb_clean flushbyasid decodeassists pausefilter pfthreshold avic v_vmsave_vmload vgif overflow_recov succor smca 

However in windows the max processor speed is 3.6GHz

This max speed is also possible in Ubuntu as:

$   dmidecode -t processor | grep Speed     Max Speed: 3600 MHz     Current Speed: 2000 MHz 

On some research I found that the Legacy Bootloader should be enabled and EFI should be disabled for the turbo frequencies to work normally. But my laptop manufacturer does not allows that and it has a primary Windows 10 OS.

Also is there any chance that the AMD microcode is not loaded in the init? If so, then how to solve this?

Any approach towards the problem or alternate solution would be helpful.

Is there any way I can speed up the scraping process?

The web-scraping process currently takes quite a bit of time, and I wonder if I can structure the code otherwise or improve it in any way.

Code looks like this:

import numpy as np import pandas as pd import requests import json from sklearn import preprocessing from sklearn.preprocessing import OneHotEncoder  results_2017 = [] results_2018 = [] for game_id in range(2017020001, 2017021271, 1): url = '{}/boxscore'.format(game_id) r_2017 = requests.get(url) game_data_2017 = r_2017.json()  for homeaway in ['home','away']:      game_dict_2017 = game_data_2017.get('teams').get(homeaway).get('teamStats').get('teamSkaterStats')     game_dict_2017['team'] = game_data_2017.get('teams').get(homeaway).get('team').get('name')     game_dict_2017['homeaway'] = homeaway     game_dict_2017['game_id'] = game_id     results_2017.append(game_dict_2017)  df_2017 = pd.DataFrame(results_2017)  for game_id in range(2018020001, 2018020667, 1): url = '{}/boxscore'.format(game_id) r_2018 = requests.get(url) game_data_2018 = r_2018.json()  for homeaway in ['home','away']:      game_dict_2018 = game_data_2018.get('teams').get(homeaway).get('teamStats').get('teamSkaterStats')     game_dict_2018['team'] = game_data_2018.get('teams').get(homeaway).get('team').get('name')     game_dict_2018['homeaway'] = homeaway     game_dict_2018['game_id'] = game_id     results_2018.append(game_dict_2018)   df_2018 = pd.DataFrame(results_2018)  df = df_2017.append(df_2018) 

Fan speed, high CPU usage, think it’s GPU not working

So since last night (I think i was changing drivers and what not, once gave me an error and I had to force shutdown by pressing down the power key on my laptop) my CPU usage is really high whenever I watch a youtube video or something like that, and the speed of the fans gets really high, but I never had that problem before, for example, when watching a simple youtube video and nothing else besides it, the CPU usage is like this:

Image 1

And the fan speed gets really high. I was fiddling around and found that my nvidia wasn’t actually being used as the primary card (or something? I’m not really a tech guy)

Image 2

However I had tried to put in the terminal “nvidia-setting” and chose to use nvidia (high performance) instead of intel graphics but didn’t work… (I have driver 390 for nvidia and yes I rebooted after making the system change).

Can someone help me please? I can’t do anything before the fans go crazy…

My Passport Ultra transfer speed

So I bought this device to replace an older HP external drive. This WD drive comes with a USB 3C cable and a USB 3 adapter. Im using it on a MPB – USB3 port. WD will only give me “theoretical” speed and not practical speed or expected speed. Can anyone comment on what I might expect? I seem to only be getting 46 to 61 MBps transfer speed which is slower than the 7 year old drive its replacing. Trying to figure out why. Tks for any help!!

Does the US Government Shutdown affect my ability or the speed at which I can receive a passport?

Does the US government shutdown currently occurring affect either my ability or the speed at which I can receive a passport? If so, what can I do to ensure I can receive my passport as quickly as possible?

By the way, this is the most similar question I have found, on the 2015 shutdown, but the question and the answer did not directly address Passports, although a comment did vaguely say passports are “being affected” Does the US governmental shutdown affect traveling to/from the US and if so, how?

Speed up Google Sheets scripts

I use following scripts to do the following:

  1. Insert newline
  2. Copy info from line below to newline

script takes extremely long, how do I

function rijToevoegen() {   var spreadsheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActive();   var sheet = spreadsheet.getActiveSheet();   sheet.getRange(spreadsheet.getCurrentCell().getRow(), 1, 1, sheet.getMaxColumns()).activate();   spreadsheet.getActiveSheet().insertRowsBefore(spreadsheet.getActiveRange().getRow(), 1);   spreadsheet.getActiveRange().offset(0, 0, 1, spreadsheet.getActiveRange().getNumColumns()).activate();   sheet = spreadsheet.getActiveSheet();   sheet.getRange(spreadsheet.getCurrentCell().getRow() + 1, 1, 1, sheet.getMaxColumns()).copyTo(spreadsheet.getActiveRange(), SpreadsheetApp.CopyPasteType.PASTE_NORMAL, false);   var spreadsheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActive();   var currentCell = spreadsheet.getCurrentCell();   spreadsheet.getActiveRange().getDataRegion(SpreadsheetApp.Dimension.COLUMNS).activate();   currentCell.activateAsCurrentCell();   currentCell = spreadsheet.getCurrentCell();   var sheet = spreadsheet.getActiveSheet();   sheet.getRange(spreadsheet.getCurrentCell().getRow(), 1, 1, sheet.getMaxColumns()).activate();   currentCell.activateAsCurrentCell();   spreadsheet.getActiveRange().copyTo(spreadsheet.getActiveRange(), SpreadsheetApp.CopyPasteType.PASTE_VALUES, false); };
