Q: Solved: RAM Updrage Question.

Hi everyone,

I run windows home on 2.0GHz and 1gig RAM. Lately, I decided to install another 1gig(to be 2 gigs RAM) to accommodate the current applications that I am using. I stumbled onto a site that is able to scan your system and specify the type and also predict the performance after the upgrade-- www.crucial.com.

Q1: Should I trust the scanner the site provides, and is it accurate "in case anyone has ever tried it"?
Q2: The type of RAM that the scanner found was Crucial DDR2 memory with support for 200pin SODIMM DDR2 PC2-5300or DDR2 PC2-4200 speeds. , I then started bidding at eBay on Samsung 2GB PC2-5300 DDR2-667 200pin SODIMM but I know that the former Samsung RAM is used with MacBook, will that be no good for PC?

I'd also like to know what do these mean and how do they differ SODIMM,PC2-5300,4200 speeds and finally
DDR2-667 or DDR2-533

Thanks you.

I need to know which version of RAM is best peformance, frequency and latency wise that will achieve the best performance possible from the DDR2 family.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I haven't been on windows 98 or 98SE alot so I was wondeing, If you put a Cd-writer (burner) in a computer with windows 98 or 98se (which I just did) why when ;you go to my computer and right click on the E dirve is there not a recording tab and other tabs like in windows xp, I know the answer will probably be------because your not using XP----------But I was wondering. The one I put in had NERO with it and I like NERO anyway however I would like to know for future purposes.

Why when you go to mycomputer and right click on the E drive (the burner) don't you have the recording tab and the rest like XP. I like doing it that way in XP where you can move all files or copy files and then go to the burner and say write these files to cd.

Does windows 98 or 98SE have this and I am just missing it or is a burning program like NERO or another the only way to use the burning in 98 or 98SE?

Thanks for the help
 

A:Solved: Windows 98 and/or 98SE-question about burning CDs, is there a record tab etc-Question

lol, you answered your own question, windows 95,98,98se,and ME don't support cd burning, except with 3rd party software. When you purchase any of the NT systems (ie: xp, NT 4, Server 2003, 2000 PRO etc...) all have the NT kernel which if you look during your install say " Windows (whatever version) is built on NT technology" and "You now have built in CD burning" soon and perhaps with the upcoming service pack 2, it will start coming with DVD burning capability.

I believe the only windows kernel out that currently supports cd burning is the NT one

I just wanted to know if I could do the following with no problem or if you cannot do it this way.

There is a windows 98 computer upstairs (with DSL) There is a modem--then a router---the windows 98 computer, I think he has the windows 98 computer upstairs hooked into the router and then another line in the router running downstairs to a windows XP SP1 computer. they both work fine. Here is my question.

He wants to add a third computer downstairs,so can it be like
THe modem then router then the windows 98 computer upstairs hooked into the router. Now is it possible to then plug like a four port hub into the router and have the line running downstairs and then take the windows xp that is already down there and plug it into the hub and then the new computer plug it into the hub and they would all have the dsl just like the two of them do now,

I guess I am asking can you plug the one compute upstairs into the router and then run a cable downstairs into a hub and plug the other two computers into the hub and they will all get DSL?

or do you have to plug the upstairs computer into the router like now and then plug two morre lines into the router and run them both downstairs and run one to each computer?

And as long as everything is going throught the router no matter which way it is done do you have to run anything special to get the DSL on all? Some step by step instructions would be nice but I really want to know if the hub thing will work the way I am describing it. Thanks... Read more

Today I changed over my hard drive from a 60 Gig to 80 Gig, Warranty work because the HD was noisy. I used the Maxtor program to copy one drive to the other. Now I can not get into system restore. If I try it just hangs up on that tab. Example: If I try and get to system restore by right clicking my computer is hangs after I hit the restore tab/and if I try through programs/system tools it hangs as soon as I click on system restore. By hanging I mean that that screen stays on the desk top until I reboot the system. (Note at no time is system restore showing in task manager) I'm wondering
1. If the change in HD size has anything to do with this.
2. Is there a manual way of turning off system restore so I can delete and old restore points and start over?

I have an old ASUS EN8600GT video card and just got a new motherboard that supports SLI. The video card also supports SLI, so I thought I would look around and see if I could find an old used card identical to the one I already have and hook them together with a SLI bridge. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact same card on the cheap. However, I did find what appears to be the exact same card EXCEPT it is the "silent edition" and has a passive heatsink on it instead of the fan like my model has.

My question is, could I hook these two cards together in a SLI configuration?

Hello!

I'm having a bit of trouble on my PC in the last 24 hours. I recently bought a Samsung PC2100(266MHz) DDR 1G for my PC. I already had a Kingston PC3200(400MHz) 1G DDR in my PC because it was compatible with PC2100, as well as the PC2700. Yesterday, I added the Samsung PC2100 to my PC alongside the Kingston PC3200. First few hours was fine; the PC was considerably faster and ran great. Then after a while my computer started slowing down at point and then going back to normal speed (or even the speed I had it with with just 1GB of RAM). Then my computer completely stopped and I had to reboot it manually. After that I had to reboot it one more time because some of the programs were not responding or not turning up at all. There was also considerable slowness.

I wanted my Computer to run faster, and that is why I bought more RAM so I can have 2GB of it, but it seems to have no effect, or has even worsened the speed (at times). Should I return the Samsung PC2100 and get another Kingston PC3200 or is there something I could do?

HI ,
I have a Sapphire HD 3870 512MB Graphics card ..
i was checking the specs on the box this morning and i see that this card requirers a 450 watt PSU minimum and 550 watt for Crosfire...

i have a 400 watt in my machine , and its not the greastest quality .
would i see a performance boost in my machine power / graphics in game by purchasing a greater wattage PSU ..
750watt PSU .???

A:Solved: PSU . question

you wouldnt see a difference in performance.

but i dont recommend you use a 400W with that card at all.! and if you say its not the best quality then if you do try it it could and probebly will take other components with it most likly the mobo.

if your psu cant handle the system needs and your system needs more amps that the psu can give then its a very unstable system, and could go at any time.

and i dont think there is a need for 750W either

somehtuing like this would do, and can cope with crossfire if you decide later down the line.

I am going to buy a PSU from Tiger Direct tomorrow and I have my eyes set out on a 500W for about 75 bucks: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1273334&CatId=1079

I want to know. It says SLI ready in the pic. Does that mean it will also support Intel chipset P35 which supports crossfire if not enabled? I just want to make sure before I buy because it is far from me and hopefully my ride will pay off tomorrow. If not then I will have to buy online.

I was wondering if you have a Mobo that supports Dual Channel….would performance be better with 2-1 GB sticks in Dual Channel mode or would you get better performance out of 3-1 GB sticks in single channel mode? I was reading online to see if I could find something that might tell me if the dual channel 2GB would be equal or possibly better than 3 GB non dual channel. If you had a 3rd stick laying around rated at the same speed/capacity as the other 2 sticks would it just be better to slap it in there and have the mobo revert to single channel or leave it out? Let me know what you all think.
 

A:Solved: RAM Question

2x1GB would be much better. with the dual channel, you are doubling your bandwidth for ram, and i don't know of any programs that even uses 3gb of ram (maybe some rendering program but not many).
