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've been blowing through graphics cards about every 12 months. Even with my new system it's been the same. I do play a lot of graphic intensity games. Could that be the reason for their early demise? The latest casualty is my GTX 560.
 

A:The average life of a GPU

A GPU's lifespan is at least 3-5 years. Hell, if you take care of your components it will last as long as you need it to in most cases. The fact that your GPU's are dieing in a year is strange. If this has indeed happened to all of your GPU's it is safe to say that the operating conditions inside your PC may not be too good. Or, you may just be burning them out? Do you SUPER overclock them or something? What sort of operating temps do you usually get?

I have been have issues with my cable modem suddenly shutting down and then resetting itself. I am thinking it is time to replace the one I have that is at least 7 years old. What is the average life span of a modem?
 

A:Average life of a cable modem?

Perhaps it's overheating a bit due to dust build-up? I have a DSL modem/router combo and it's pretty warm. Since taking it apart is a bit of a pain, I use compress air & vacuum cleaner on it from time to time.

7 years does sound long, so might be better to replace it and give yourself the peace of mind.

Hi,

Currently I am having acer laptop 4738Z model that I purchased last year in the month of February.

I use it on ac power more often that in battery mode.

On an average, I work on laptop for about 5 hours in ac power mode and merely 1 hour on battery mode.

Please tell me the average lifetime of the battery that I can have from this kind of usage.

regards,
Proffy
 

A:average battery life of laptop

Laptop batteries do usually drain fairly fast, especially if you're doing a lot on them. Though 1 hour is pretty short.

When your laptop is disconnected from AC adapter, do you turn on Power Saving Mode?

Do you turn your brightness down?

Do you just browse the web/perform simple tasks that aren't power hungry?

Also, whenever you are running your laptop from the AC adapter, take out the battery. Leaving the battery in while it's plugged in to the charger long-term can cause your battery to die out faster than it should.

I have Dell Dimension 1100 desktop computer that is seven years old.

The computer is turned on 12 hours per day and is used on average three hours per day, mainly to send / receive emails, surf the web, use Word Office software and stream movies.

Last year it went very slow, but after a service and the insertion of an additional 1GB of RAM, it regained a reasonable level of performance. It now has I.25 GB of RAM.

My question is this. What is the average life-expectancy of this type of computer.

Sometimes Dell offers a trade-in deal in respect of old computers (provided that they are functional).

If I could estimate when my present computer was almost at the end of its life, I might be able to take advantage of such a deal.
 

A:What is the average life-expectancy of a Dell Dimension 1100 desktop computer

I'm sure Dell have some life expectancy figures, but not likely in the public domain , even with an average time you need to know the distribution of those figures

so 10 years - you could have 50 untits fail at 5 years and 50 units fail at 10 years , would give a number of 7.5yrs - which would not help you really

i would say seven years old is a quite old for a PC these days , the mechanical parts , harddrive may likely to failure

I assume you have all the data backed up anyway

Not sure you would get much of a deal from Dell - but with the deals available this may not actually save you anything

Staples often have great deals - also Curry/PCworld are doing deals over Easter

Not really an answer to your question though

To all owners of X1 Carbon 2017 (5th gen).I read all of those reviews where people are impressed by 10+ hours of battery life (15,5h advertised), but I can't really figure out how....!? First time I tested was a normal working day - Firefox (a lot of Flash it must be said), Outlook, Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat. Nothing really heavy, no peripherals except Bluetooth mouse. Brightness dimmed 1 level below the ideal. It lasted for about 4 hours! I windows's list of apps affecting battery life, Firefox was on 1st place with 32-35% Second attempt - same set of tasks, however less Firefox (no flash) - 7 hours. Now in the middle of a 3rd attempt (using Opera this time) - battery time remaining indication goes over 10h only when I completely stop using the laptop Not many apps running in the background either (Dropbox, Skype...) So my question - do you guys get more than 10h of battery life and HOW? Do you enable "Battery Stretch"? How actively do you use it and for what?

Hi,

I am wondering if end-of-life Vista is more dangerous than end-of-life XP. My reasoning is that Vista more closely resembles Win 10 than XP. So as MS was saying, attackers may reverse engineer patches meant for recent OS's into exploits that work on the end-of-life one. So it seems to me that Vista looks more dangerous than XP.

in the 29-32C range and goes up to about 40C when I'm playing Microsoft Train

Simulator with [email protected] and other apps in the background. The CPU is at stock

speeds and Rambo says his maxes at 45C and his is at 3.03GHz.

Do I need a case fan to help get the air circulating in the tower box?

Hello all!

Some of you may know me. Like my software and WinSxS (I love the way WinSxS all fits together!) but am utterly clueless about the hardware. Please forgive me this question!

I have a DESKTOP PC which is NOT overclocked in any way. It is reasonably powerful (see specs) and is a Dell. However, it is used to the extremes of its ability - regularly.

I would just like to ask you what the temperatures you would consider good, warm, and hot for both the GPU and CPU. I know the GPU can get quite hot, but I would please like to know how hot, so that I can learn.

I have a feeling that mine are quite hot. Most of the time I get:

CPU: 52 degrees Centigrade (C)
GPU: 128 C

These seem awfully hot. Putting my hand on the GPU plastic casing after use makes me think that these are not anomalous!

Thanks so much in advance!

Richard

EDIT: All of the fans have been confirmed as working, and it has good airflow all around, and always has had.

A:At what temperature does an average CPU and GPU become too hot?

Hello Richard, I am not really knowledgeable in this area & can only reflect on my own research so that i can monitor my own temps which basically indicates 70 degrees C and below in both cases as being comfortable temps.

In posts i have read concern is usually expressed in 80c+, your CPU looks fine mine runs at 50-65 & max 72c under heavy load. I use Core temp to monitor which also has overheat protection

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

The tjmax is the CPU manufacturers max temp (assume critical) & safe temps to be 15c-20c below this.

As far as your GPU it looks extremely hot but i do not have a solution for you other than cleaning & extra cooling which i am sure you are already aware of. (my desktop has settings in the BIOS for the fan)

Just recently moved to a new apartment and had to ditch my dsl for cable. I got the highest service available which was 1536kb/512kb. Now when I do the bandwidth tests on websites I can only get anywhere between 150-200kbps. I had a tech com over here and hook it up correctly, or so it seemed, because it was going very slow to start with. He showed me it was working by downloading a 100mb file and the transfer rate was hitting from 150-250 KB. Just wondering why it is that the internet seems soooo utterly slow but most of the downloads are realitively fast. Maybe I am misunderstanding some term or something but I know this cable line should be higher on the BW tests than 150-200 kbps! I have tried 8 seperate tests to check and all were about the same.

Thanks in advance,

A:average temp for a pc?

What temp is that case or CPU? If case then what's the CPU temp? Your CPU temp is fine under 65C while under load (gaming, someother heavy processing workout, i.e Prime95). At idle it should be around 30-35C with air cooling and standard room temp. 65C is getting hot and I wouldn't want mine to get any hotter then that, in fact that's the upper safe limit. You really want it no hotter then mid 50's. (under load)

I'm a computer consultant, but I've run into an interesting situation. I have a WinXP Pro system 3.4ghz LGA processor 1 gig of DDR400 ram, 2 100+ gig HDs, a CD Burner, and a DVD/CD Reader, Nvidia GeForce 5700LE (256) video, SP2, and all latest updates installed.

Many programs installed. I've got Norton AV Corporate 8, AVG Free 7.0.323, Spybot 1.4, Adaware 1.06r1, Spyware Blaster 3.4, with all the lastest updates. Adaware found 7 tracking cookies, Spybot says I'm clean, Blaster is updated with no errors/problems. AVG and Norton run daily and show no virii.

What is occuring is when I leave my system sit with any program running either in the background or foreground, for 20 minutes or more, the system will bog down. When I check the Task Manager, it shows Explorer.exe floating between 48-50%, with memory jumping around. 160,000 - 280,000K, thought it was climbing but watched it and it keeps fluctuating. System.exe is showing 30-40%. It doesn't matter what program I may leave running, from WinMX to MS Word 2003.

The only way to clear it is to log out. I don't have to reboot, just log out of the shell. Logging back in and the system runs great.

Hi all! Would you all please tell me what is the temperature range that your P50 or P70 typically operates at?   It would also be great if you could measure it under average office use, internet browsing, plus maybe picture/video editing or low-to-mid-level gaming (if you do those sorts of things).  Also, to circumvent potential confusion, please denote what machine you have and in what scale you are getting these temp readings.

I am using 3 column's let's say A B and C using A and B by inputting daily numbers and the total in C by using formula =A1+B1 all the way down to 30 (monthly totals). What I want is the average on a running average from the C column. I have used the =AVERAGE(C1:C30) but all I get is the divx error.

Have looked at 2 prior 'Running Average' posts, still need help. Issue: Have two columns; 1st is 'number entry' (a new # each day), and 2nd column is the 'Running Avg'. What is the formula that when you add subsequent #s in row 1, the formula automatically adjusts for addition of new number, to then calculate the new 'running avg.' (with out changing the prior 'running averages'.) ....Thanks much.

The title says it all. I have a MSI R4830 graphics card that runs fine with XP. Windows 7 runs good without the card (Dual boot system). Windows 7 seems to not like the graphics card and system interrupts in the resource monitor using up the processor. System interrupts manages the deferred proceedure calls and interupt service routines. There are some sites about eliminating recieve livelock in an interrupt-driven kernal http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc...10.1.1.36.6579
but these sites are a little technical for me. If there is anyone that can translate the tech talk to something more understandable I sure would like to hear from you!
One more bit of info- I did download the drivers at the top of this forum with no positive result.

Hi, can you post a picture from your Task manager showing all the processes that are running please, And also fill in your System Specs.

Privacy guardian just bleached a portion of my hard drive, apparently following the installation of windows defender. It's only because I use norton goback that I was able to restore the system and undo the changes. I currently have ccleaner for privacy and to clean up unnecessary files, and adaware and spypot S+D for spyware/adware removal. Also have norton antivirus as my antivirus program and spyware blaster to guard against spyware.

What are the most highly recommended free programs for maintaining security on my computer? Am particularly interested in a good privacy programme and a spyware removal programme that actually picks up stuff - adaware never does! Thanks

Ok so this is probably stupid easy... but I just don't use Excel to it's potential. I have a order history log and in A1-x1 I have month/day/year (mm/dd/yyyy) I want to know the average of days between orders.

ex
A1 is 10/04/2006
B1 is 10/10/2006 (6 days later)
C1 is 10/12/2006 (2 days later)
D1 is 10/17/2006 (5 days later)
etc

How do I find the average of elapsed days (6+2+5=13/3=4.3333)?

Happy Holidays!
 

A:Solved: Average between dates

Hi
Dates can be subtracted from each other, and the result is given in days.
I would use this approach:

Code:
B2=B1-A1
C2=C1-B1
.
.
X2=X1-W1
these are the elapsed days, and finally

Code:
Y2 = AVG ("B2:X2")
Is this what you need?

I own an A8-5500 and its average temperature is 60 - 65 Centigrades, and sometimes, when im playing games (For example: Bioshock Infinite), the game crashes... and both the GPU (Nvidia 9800GT) and the CPU get really hot.

What should i do to fix the temperature problem if it actually is a problem?

A:Is 65C a good average temperature for a CPU?

Do you mean that the CPU is above 60C at idle? That seems hot.

Does the CPU heatsink get hot? It should. If not, it may be in poor thermal contact with the CPU. One thing to try would be reseating the heatsink, after replacing the thermal compound.

I've been all over the web today trying out different solutions to this issue.

I normally leave my PC running 24/7, however I shut it down last night as to change out a power strip. When I booted it up this morning, the first thing I noticed what that the Recycle Bin Icon was just a Blank Page Icon. Hit F5 hopping that it was just a fluke. Didn't change anything.

Right-Click on the bin and I get "Open, Rename, Create Shortcut, Properties" That's it. When you click on properties, you get an error message "The properties for this item are not available"

The $Recycle.bin folder is still there on the "C:" Drive, and also on my storage drive, "E:". I can still delete things through the bin, but I have to click on them and hit delete on the keyboard. There is no "Empty" button when you open the bin up, or when right clicking.

I've done this "rd /s /q C:\$Recycle.bin" thing for both drives, changing "C:\" to 'E:\" for my other drive as well. Doesn't do a thing, I'm assuming because the folder itself is there.

Thoughts?

Hello,

I have a large database on excel (20 000 rows), and need to calculate an average which excludes some values. I tried to use the filter tool and the auto subtotals, but it is too tedious since I need a precise summary day by day for each genre and I have too many lines to do it by hand.

Here is the format of my data :
ASIN - Date - Rank - genre

ASIN contains a product identifier, Date the date when the data was taken, rank the value to be computed and genre is a classifier. I want to automatically compute the average rank of a given genre day by day. Any idea how I could do that?

Here is enclosed a sample data if you want (two days included, bear in mind that the number of product by day may change).
Thanks,
Ataraxiste

Something is wrong with my registry. I can't start an EXE file. Sometimes it says that I may not have the appropriate permissions, but after using several different versions winXP_reg_fix.reg it now tries to get winzip to open it (doesn't work). I've also tried manually adding it as an application in the file type list of the windows explorer tools, even though there's no 'restore' button.
