Device Manager showing exclamation marks on all cpu i7 cores

After using Acronis to copy Windows 7 x 64 system disk image from an old Dell Core2Duo desktop to a custom modded Gateway/Acer desktop with Intel DQ57TM motherboard and 1st gen Intel Core i7 870 CPU, you see this message in the device manager:

A driver (service) for this device has been disabled.  An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)

Sure its an old Lynnfield Core i7, a first generation processor from 2009, but's still better than a Core2Duo, it's a poorman's upgrade.

To resolve this problem you need to do: change device installation options to "Never install driver software from windows update" on each core of the CPU, then reboot.

in Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers
click on the computer icon, and then right click, then "device installation options"

Before following through the article (for method 2), I disabled automatic driver installation. To do this, I did the following:
1) Opened Devices and Printers.

Mercedes Benz Diesel CDI EGR Emulator Circuit Diagrams

Mercedes EGR Emulator Circuits for Electric Wahler EGR on Diesel EngineFor any car fitted with a MAF you can't just block the EGR valve as the MAF detects the reduced airflow when the valve operates. If it fails to report this reduction the ECU throws a code, turns on the MIL light and engages Limp Home mode.
The EGR valve is operated in varying degrees whenever the engine is in cruise mode.

A circuit has to be designed that reduces the MAF output voltage whenever the EGR valve is called to actuate.

Having seen a mod on another forum I decided to give it a go and installed it last night.

The circuit is really simple. The EGR valve transducer is fed with constant 12v which is proportionately shunted to Gnd to create the potential to activate the transducer, to engage the EGR solenoid and allow hot gasses into the intage via the EGR valve in varying degrees.

The MAF is in the cold air intake. the EGR gasses enter further downstream. the MAF then monitors the reduced cold intake when the …

How to Populate the Outlook 2010 Auto-Complete List

How to Populate the Outlook 2010 Auto-Complete List Outlook won't populate the auto-complete cache automatically but it’s a fairly simple task for users. Open a new message and click the To button, select all of the names in the Suggested Contacts folder and add them to the message. Repeat for your Contacts folder. Close the message without sending. This method works in all versions of Outlook that use autocomplete. Note that there is a limit to the number of names you can have on the autocomplete list. In Outlook 2003, it's 1000. In Outlook 2007 and 2010 it's 2000. In all versions, it's an MRU - most recently used - list, so frequently used addresses will always be on the list. for more Outlook Tricks:
