Will Not start at Park, can start at Neutral

Could not start the engine on my AT Honda City 1995 model when the gear is at Park. Surprisingly, shifting the gear to Neutral it could be started. Sent it to service centre & was told the gear sensor needed to be replaced. Price is Rm300.

Loud Engine Noise

Been driving with loud sound coming from engine compartment for the past 1 month. It sounded like the engine is going bad. Got me so worried & send it to the workshop. Thought it will caused me a bomb. It was actually the rear wheel bearing fault. Cost me RM700 for a replacement. Never thought a wheel bearing problem sounded almost like a noisy engine sound.

Been trying out on newest version of Spiceworks 7.0.01308.  The setup of my network, pinging to outside LAN is closed on the router which resulted in me getting lots of email from Spiceworks alert on “ is not responding to ping”.  Searching high & low including at Inventory – Setting to disable that option. Finally found it at Inventory – Cloud Services – under provider “”. Deleting “” resolved the problem.

Increase VirtualBox VDI Size



The time will come when there’s a need to increase the Virtual disk size. These are the steps (to increase existing size of 10GB to 20GB):



1.       Close the VM VirtualBox Manager.

2.       On command prompt, go to the VirtualBox directory & issue command  VBoxManage modifyhd “d:\vm\xp.vdi” --resize 20480

Notes :
d:\vm\xp.vdi is the  location of the vdi file. The location can also be found under SETTINGS – STORAGE.

20480 is the size in MB.  In the case above, 20GB x 1024MB = 20480MB

The progress will be shown. Resize is completed at 100%

3.       Start VirtualBox Manager. The VDI size is now at 20GB.

4.       Boot up the virtual machine.

5.       Final step is to Increase the partition size. My favorite is EaseUS Partition Master Free Edition.  It’s simple & easy to us. Best of all, it’s free.

Reason 442: Failed to Enable Virtual Adapter - Windows 7 64 bit

For an unknown reason, Cisco VPN client just refused to connect after I make Windows 7 as WiFi Hotspot. Getting error Reason 442: Failed to enable Virtual Adapter.



Apparently, Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service was causing the error. The workaround is to STOP Windows ICS service & bravo, Cisco VPN Client works like charm!

Can't Partition Unallocated Disk

Having more than 2 TB of disk space but can only create a partition up to the size of 2 TB ? The rest remain as  “ Unallocated Disk “ & no matter what, the options are blur out making partitioning impossible.

Converting the DISK to GPT format resolved the problem (right mouse click on DISK, choose Convert to GPT Disk).

Job Interview - What You Need To Know


IBM Websphere Application Server - WAS6.0, WAS6.1, WAS Fix Packs

DB2 Fix Pack Lists

The good about DB2 Fix Packs, there’s no need to follow Fix Pack sequence. Eg, DB2 v9.1 last supported fix is Fix Pack 12. It contains the cumulative fixes of prior versions. Instead of having to apply earlier Fix Packs, the latest one can be used. However, do check on the requirement listed in latest Fix Pack prior to installation.


List of available DB2 Fix Packs can be found here :



Upgrade DB2 v9.1 to v9.7
