Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default GeForce ForceWare v.71.84 Major Display Issue

I have already sent a bug report to Gnutella but I wanted community feedback too. I searched and browsed the forums and found similar issues either still to be resolved or resolved thanks to something I've already tried... Cheers in advance for the help: here is the text of the bug report...
Quote:
"Dear Gnutella,

Your P2P software, LimeWire, seems to be incompatible with the GeForce drivers in question. I was using the free version of LimeWire v.4.8.1, though that shouldn't affect compatibility, and after successfully installing the new ForceWare drivers and rebooting the computer (NB: after I had installed these drivers, I didn't immediately reboot, and LimeWire kept running normally) when trying to run LimeWire the screen went black at first with only the LimeWire "loading" frame appearing; then the LimeWire window popped up but all that was visible was the standard Windows 2000 top frame saying "LimeWire: enabling... etc." the progress bar and data of an old download that now continued and the (blank) Upgrade window with a sporadically rotating LimeWire icon.

I run an Intel Pentium 4 3.6Ghz CPU on a compatible Intel motherboard. I also use the P2P client DC++ (previously LimeWire kept asking me, seemingly after I had run DC++, if I wanted to make LimeWire my default magnet link handler, to which I replied on occasion yes, on occasion no, without any visible difference in effect).

I have given all possible information (I hope) that may be useful to solving the problem, and will be posting it on the forums too.

In the hope that you may help,

Yours Truly,

Alfredo"

Only thing I could suggest unless someone comes up with a better suggestion is to downgrade to the previous driver version or wait until the next one comes out.

Some people have had graphic driver issues before. Sometimes the answer has been resetting them to default as some people change settings for games etc.

I will try that, although I'd rather not for compatibility reasons (always better to have the latest drivers). At any rate here are two screenshots of the 2 phases of the problem.

Hmmm I've seen this also with ATI Radeon series display adapters. Fortunately I have never suffered the catastrophic effects other members have.

I had a minor issue with my display adapter(Radeon 300 series), when I run LW and configure the display adapter to run the monitor and tv at the same time. The monitor display becomes sluggish, slow to respond. I disabled the tv function and every thing returned to normal.

So for now I just live with it.

BTW when running the display adapter in dual mode, it doesn't effect my d/l, u/l, or connection status. Every thing still operates except for the monitor display which is slow to respond/refresh.

Just my observations on this comp.

EDIT:
Running LW pro 4.8.1 JRE 1.5.0_02. Latest ATI drivers from DELL. The latest java update seemed to help some but not completely.

Thanks for the Java links LotR

One other suggestion I have is to see if a different Java version might help. eg: if you're using Java 1.5 then try Java 1.4.2, or vice-versa.

Java 1.5 (take the JRE)

Java 1.4.2 (click on link)

I tried installing the 1.4.2 version to no avail - the symptoms remained the same. Therefore I tried the 1.5 version but all I thus obtained was the disappearance of the black screen of hate that used to come up in while LW was booting. The window remains blank and unutilisable...
I'm still in need of a solution...
Thank you all for your help thus far; don't give up!

Hmmm The only alternatives might be to roll back your display adapter drivers to the previous version.

Or possibly check to make sure your chipset drivers are up to date.

Does your display adapter have multiple outputs like vga,dvi,tv. If it does you might try disabling all but your monitor to see if that helps.

Other than swapping your Java versions to see if that makes any difference, you could also try deleting your LW Preferences folder whilst LW is closed; instructions here: Fixes for Limewire Only small chance this'll make any difference but worth a try. Another alternative is to go back to an earlier version of LW to see if that makes any difference: http://www9.limewire.com:82/download/ (not much to choose from)
