E6420 As-Built VS Current Configuration QUESTION

Q: E6420 As-Built VS Current Configuration QUESTION

I just received an E6420 billed as an i7-2720QM, 4 Core CPU. I'm almost certain that when I viewed the BIOS it also identified as such.
I upgraded the BIOS from A01 to A05, and then form A05 to A24. Now, the machines current configuration identifies the CPU as an i7-2640M 2 core CPU, but with a -4 appendix, as if the machine knows it has 4 cores. I would like to know once and for all what I actually have without disassembly.

Preferred Solution: E6420 As-Built VS Current Configuration QUESTION

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.)


Hi guys,
I've been fooling around with audio editing lately, and I'm just curious if Audacity's a good addition to a computer that has Sound Forge 10 Audio Studio installed. Will the difference in features between the two take care of different things? Or is it just kind of a repeat? Many thanks.


A:question about adding Audacity to my current configuration

I don't have Sound Forge 10 Audio Studio. (looks like a really cool program). Should have good Sony support. I use Audacity for editing and making mp3's and mp4's it is simple and works.The Audacity support is a forumI think I would use the Sony if I had it.

I am going to upgrade my current pc configuration, before doing so I thought I should hear soem opinions from other people, so here we go.

My current pc:

PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro 700W (840 max) Modular

Other possibly related components:

Any thoughts of upgrading maybe some other part, or using something different?
Any advice is appreciated!

I tried to find the current system configuration on Dell's support web site for the OptiPlex 755 I recently inherited. However, after running this web based application, the only result available was the original system config as it shipped on the date of purchase. Selecting "current configuration" caused the "system detect" app to run, which brings me back to the original config tab.
I accessed dell . com using IE 11 with no addons running. Does anyone know why dell's app will not report the current config?  I am unable to open the box, so please do not suggest that or any solution that does not involve resolving the issue with Dell's support web site.

Thanks in advance,

That's what happens to me two restarts after installing/reinstalling the Forceware drivers for my MSI 7950GX2, every time.

Here's the system in question:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.4GHz (stock) cooled by Big Typhoon
ASUS P5N32-E SLI Plus motherboard @ 1066MHz FSB (stock), no active cooling, just heatpipes
Two sticks of pqi TURBO 2GB DDR2-667 4-4-4-12 @ 1T, stock clocks
40GB Seagate Barracuda IV PATA HDD (test installation of OS and a couple games)
MSI NX7950GX2 in the top PCI Express x16 slot.
Thermaltake Purepower RX 600W - 4x +12V rails
My air-cooling setup keeps the CPU at around 28-32C when idle, depending on room temperature.
The system is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 x64 Standard Edition, with Service Pack 2 freshly installed.

I only have one 7950GX2, and I have *never* been able to get "Multi-GPU configuration" to actually show up under "Manage 3D Settings" in the NVIDIA Control Panel. I've recently flashed to the latest BIOS for my motherboard, and I can always reproduce the error in either PCI Express x16 slot. There are no other cards besides the audio riser card.

I've tried using only one 2GB stick of RAM and then installing the Forceware drivers, and I've tried it with relaxed timing (5-5-5-15) as well.

I've also tried using all three of the 6-pin PCI Express connectors that the power supply offers. Each one works off of a different rail. No differences noticed. Each +12V rail on the ... Read more

I was attempting to fix up some unnecessary registry when I accidentally deleted HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/wow6432node (my pinky slipped onto the delete key). I tried researching this on my own, but everyone that did this seemed to have issues using programs after doing this; however, everything's working fine for me. I just restarted my computer and noticed that the folder has come back, only with a folder for Windows though (it used to have other ones).
So my question is:
Should I take any action on this, or just leave it be? I'm concerned as to what might happen, but the folder coming back on its own reassured me that the problem might actually take care of itself.
Any responses would be appreciated.

*Edit: I forgot to mention that I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit.

A:Question on wow6432node for the Current User?

Hello ChachaSlide, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since everything seems to be fine, then I wouldn't worry about it to much. If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before you deleted it to undo the deletion.

Hope this helps,

I did a clean install of 64-bit Win 7 on my Sony Vaio a few months ago, which worked fine. However, there are a number of issues I've had with drivers/etc because it's the 64-bit version. I don't have those problems on another laptop that I installed the 32-bit version on. I know there are some work-arounds and/or other drivers/software that will sometimes work, but I just don't see the benefit of 64-bit for what I do and don't want to have to bother with making it work.

I want to do a new clean install of Win 7 on my Vaio, this time using the 32-bit disk. My question is: am I going to have a problem with registering this online since I've previously registered it in its 64-bit version? (I don't have any unused licenses available from my family 3-pack.) It's the exact same PC/CPU/etc...just changing the OS from 64-bit to 32-bit.

If it will be a problem because it's already registered, can you tell me how to change it/unregister the old one?

A:Installing 32-bit Win 7 on current 64-bit Win 7 Licensing Question

Hello Jerry,

As long as you have any previously installed version using that product key number uninstalled or deleted, then you will be able to use it on your Vaio. If it will not activate online normally, then you coud activate by phone instead.

Hi. Recently my dad accidentally fell victim to some Security Tools 2010 on our computer. I was about to follow a specified procedure to remove the infection when I got carried away and chose a System Restore point. It seems to have made the rogue anti-spyware go away (had the computer go back a few days). I then proceeded to scan the computer using Malware Bytes Anti Malware and it found nothing. Then used a double-check tool called rkill which also found nothing.

In Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 SP3.

Would it be safe to say I'm... safe?

A:Have a question about my computer's current safety

Well, there could still be traces (files) of it on your drive.You could do a simple search for it:1. Start > Search > For files and folders > All files and folders > "Security Tools"2. From the search results, select the application file, right-click and choose 'Open Containing Folder'.3. Now that you know the location of the "Security Tools" folder, navigate to it using "My Computer".4. Once you get to the folder, rename it to something else and then hit the DELETE key!(If the above doesn't work in the normal Windows mode, try the SAFE mode)I then proceeded to scan the computer using Malware Bytes Anti Malware and it found nothing. Then used a double-check tool called rkill which also found nothing.Do add SuperAntiSpyware to your arsenal.My 2 Cents.

I've had a HP 8160 desktop for almost 7 years. The 3,600 RPM hard drive is a Quantum Bigfoot CY6480 with 6.03 GB of space. The processor is an Intel Pentium w/MMX type with a speed of 233 MHz(overclocked to 262 MHz). There are 4 - 32 MB modules of EDO RAM(which is the maximum supported amount for the ASUS TX97-XV mobo). I upgraded it from Windows 95 OSR2 to Windows 98SE a few years ago. It has run okay over the years, but it has gotten very slow, given the increased load from all the apps that have become memory-hungry.

I would like to have a new desktop built from scratch with a new 7,200 RPM hard drive and with a single partition. What would be involved in order to transfer the entire contents of my present hard drive onto the new hard drive so I can keep everything that I already have and not start from scratch?

I'm looking into replacing my aging x121e with a newer model later in the the year, that x260 is looking nice, but i have some questions from owners of current models: -Have Lenovo fixed the failed hinge design of the x121e? My previous laptop (x100e) still has faultless hinges, but the x121e has failed hinges on both sides due to a very stupid design choice: They made quite heavy duty hinges but attached them on flimsy plastic standoffs which shattered after about 14 months. My x121e is now held together with lots of electrical tape as the hinge assemblies are entirely free-floating inside the case.-what is the fan noise like? The x100e/x121e have relatively noisy fans as laptops go, though i did limit that especially on the x121e with CPU undervolting and fan control software, enabling it to turn off the fan about 80% of the time under load. have they managed to use quieter fans lately?

Sorry but I don't understand what you are asking.

If you have onboard graphics it is a chip on the motherboard, if you have an actual graphics card that will be in a slot.

I think that if you install a card you would disable the onboard chip.

Whichever you have neither will give problems during an install.

If that is not what you want to know please post back with a few more details of what you are trying to do.

This should be simple, but I cannot find details on whether or not this is possible.   What I want (end-state) is a P51 with the 256Gb SSD as the boot drive and the 500Gb spinning drive as the data drive. When I look at the ordering page, I can get both those drives, but there is no way to specify the SSD as the boot drive.  Alternatives are:1. Buy the P51 with just the 500Gb non-SSD, install something like a Samsung 960 EVO 250GB NVMe SSD myself, migrate/reinstall Win10 from the non-SSD to the SSD, and tell the BIOS that the SSD is now the boot drive.Pro - cheaper.Con - more effort and there's always hiccups finding the right drivers.Assumption - the P51 supports the Samsung 960 EVO 250GB NVMe SSD as a boot drive.2. Buy the P51 with just the 256Gb SSD (so it's automatically the boot drive), then buy another 2.5" SSD or non-SSD drive (and the associated caddy kit from Lenovo) and install that.Pro - no reinstall issues.Con - More expensive since I need to buy the larger data drive ($80-$100 and it's free in option 1), plus the Lenovo SSD is about $90 more than option 1. So, can I specify the SSD as the boot drive if I order the P51 with two drives, or do I have to go to alternative 1 or 2? If so, which one is generally recommended? Have I missed something critical? Thanks, ~rick

Hi guys, some quick questions about LAN IP configuration:

I have a DSL modem has an ethernet port, and a USB port, to allow for a second computer to connect to the internet. However, I have a netgear 4 port switch LAN/WLAN router, of which I connect one desktop computer to the ethernet port, my laptop using the WLAN, and one computer connected using USB (through modem, not router). Thus, the last computer has a different IP address (assigned by DSL company). My other two computers have IPs assigned by the router, thus, are able to share through Itunes...

...Which leads me to the question: is it possible to configure the ip of my modem-assigned computer to match those of my router's, or vice versa, as I want to allow my Itunes music to be accessible on all three computers. Thanks in advance, and happy thanksgiving.

p.s. I know you're wondering: but you have three more switches on the router, why not use it..well, this last one doesn't have LAN card.

A:ip configuration question

What you should of done is connect all the comptuers to the LAN ports on the router (except the laptop) and share internet connection that way. As far as iTune, you might need to open up the port in the firewall software on your router (check the manual for more details).

Q: "is it possible to configure the ip of my modem-assigned computer to match those of my router's, or vice versa?"
A: No

Network cards are very cheap now, you should use that. Much faster than USB.

I would also like to remove the add-bookmark item from the personal tool-bar.

Does anyone know how to do this?

A:Netscape 8 Configuration Question


It doesn't look like the Google search field can be removed.

To remove the Security Center and Bookmark items from the toolbar, go to View > Toolbars > Customize. Then drag the unwanted item from the toolbar to the customize window.

If I find a way to get rid of the Google search, I'll repost here.

Can McAfee Virusscan enterprise 8.7i schedule a scan without ePolicy Orchestrator?
I finally got it the way I want it except the virusscan console Full Scan and on-demand
scan properties have the schedule button grayed-out. I only see Administrator from the
Windows XP w/ sp3 login screen in safe mode and it has no password. I didn't get ePolicy
Orchestrator with my McAfee install and there is no Hub or Server here so I guess I am
the Administrator. I set up this machine and gave the user I set it up with administrator
privileges, This is XP Home so I have no users and groups button in my Manage MSC.
Am I out of luck, or will I just have to either get ePolicy Orchestrator or run on-demand
scans manually, when I am about to be away from the machine? Thx paj692

A:How to (McAfee configuration question)

I installed McAfee Enterprise 8.7i on my XP Pro (w/ SP3) and ran the setup using "Run
as" Administrator. I had to set up a password for the Administrator account so the
program would run, but with XP Pro, that is no problem. The schedule button is not greyed
out like it is on the XP Home (w/ sp3) system using the exact same installer. I did not
install it using "Run As" the Administrator Account. I'd like to, but the problem is this; I
can't run the installer from safe mode since the installer service is not running and I get
this error when trying to run in regular mode (Run As Administrator). Unable to log on:
Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank password (That's not
it!), logon hour restrictions, (probably not it) or policy restriction has been enforced. Any
body know a work around for this. It would be good to know how to run something in XP
Home as the Administrator without having to go into safe mode. paj692

I have about a dozen HP T5325's in my network.  We have recently put XenApp 7.5 in place.  I am unable to configure a connection on the 5325's.  When I choose Citrix ICA, it wants me to choose Server/Published App, the type of protocol, etc., and the connection won't work with those settings.  Choosing the XenApp connection, it's using the PNAgent, and that's not working either. I have an abundacne of HP T5565's/T510's, and those all work great with Firmware 4.4 or later.  I just choose Citrix, put in the URL, and go, and it works. I did go download the latest firmware for the 5325 and install that, but I already had that, so that didn't help. What I'm wondering is, is it possible to make the 5325's work?  If so, what do I need to download, or how does the connection need to be configured?

Hi Did you ever find a solution to this as we have the same issue? We have tried a few things but doesn't look good! Looks like we will have to replace all of these devices. Thanks

Can I add the following ram board to my existing [email protected] with CL2.5?
PC2700 @333mgz with CL3
I have checked with my computer manufacturer and they state that my system will accept 1GB.

A:Ram memory configuration question

If you're existing memory is clocked @ 266mhz than you may indeed be able to use the PC2700 333mhz memory but it will run at 266mhz. It really all depends on your motherboard.

Hello everyone,

I recently bought a Linksys wireless router so that I can finally get wifi in my home. The computer I'm on now is going to "host" the router. I use verizon dsl, and a dsl modem. I correctly plugged the Linksys in all of it's intended ports, but Windows Vista doesn't pick it up. I "googled" around a good bit for the solution. I basically found out that the CD with the Linksys is useless, and I have to allow my modem to connect itself and the linksys at the same time manually (configuring). To do this, apparently, I have to get my gateway address (which would be, and type that into my web browser (being firefox). The Westell site comes up with my connection info. - I "log in" with "admin" "admin" as the user and pass. Now I have the administration to change my modem and connection settings, WHAT SHOULD I DO FROM HERE?

Thank you all very much,

A:Linksys Configuration Question.

That would be unusual that your LinkSys disk is useless, because most will get you started in VISTA as well as WXP.
There are updates at the LinkSys site for each operating system. You will benefit from going to the LinkSys Support site, while knowing your model number and version number, then download and print the Quick Install Guide, the long User Guide in PDF format, and the latest drivers... which may be about 36 MB or more.
Then follow the instructions in the quick install or user guide after you install the latest driver... you are on the right track... you may want to talk to tech support of your high speed connection to see what they require, codes wise... as they vary from location to location.

I am doing some testing with IEAK11, so I installed IEAK 11 on a 2012 R2 machine.  I have a Windows 8.1 Pro machine setup as the target, so I used IEAK11 to build an Internal build with some changes to mainly the Privacy settings and I DID choose to
add our company name to the branding.
Now that I have the built .exe and .msi installers, I have a couple of questions:
1) How do we install the installers on the target 8.1 machine?  Do we uninstall the already-existing IE 11 and then run the built installer?  Or do we just run the built installer (.exe or .msi)?
2) After we run the built installer, where does the branding appear (where can we see it)?

Hello all. Using Windows XP SP 2. After I use run, MSCONFIG, and bring up system config utility, I have it on selective startup. It shows Process System.ini.file and it is checked...Process Win.ini.file and it is checked...Load system services has a green highlighted box next to it...Load startup items with a green box...and Use original Boot.ini is checked with a green dot.
Are all of these supposed to be checked and highlighted like this? I've noticed some greater than usual memory usage and cannot remember if these are all supposed to be checked.
Any help or comments appreciated.
Thank you, Tom.

A:System Configuration Utility Question

Hi Ohfer,
Yes that is supposed to be check once you edit/disable/enable something in the startup it will be changed to selective startup. That is normal, the only difference I have is Load system services is checked for mine and yours is higlighted. I don't think it makes a big diffrence though.

I have a dual NIC in my work desktop (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit) connecting to separate routers. Eeach router has internet access, each on a different segment, each on the same subnet. We have 2 independent networks here. One segment is a domain and the other is a work group. Both have multiple servers.

The first NIC's IPv4 is configured with a static IP Address on a Domain and has a gateway configured. The second one also has a static IP address in a work group and is configured with no gateway. This seems to work fine, but the second one shows up as a Public newtork and I would prefer it to be a Work network.

Researching this pointed me to an article that said networks without default gateways are always public.

I changed the second NIC to also have a default gateway, matching the router's IP Address on the second segment. Windows slapped me for having 2 default gatewyas and let me save it anyway. Now, both connections are showing up under Domain Network and everything seems to be working fine. Both connections show that they have internet connectivity.

I fear that just because they seem to be working does not necessarily mean that is is working efficiently. I am also not positive that it even matters that the second one is listed as a Public network. Can anyone identify the proper configuration in my situation?

A:Dual NIC, 2 Segment configuration question

OK, after a bit more poking I now have the second router configured to assign a static leased IP Address for my second NIC where it assigns the NIC an IP address based on the MAC Address of the card. Then I configured the ipv4 for that card to obtain an ip address automatically.

Now, that connection's details show the original IP Address (the one I had previously set as a static IP on the card itself) as well as a default gateway (Router #2's IP Address), and I am no longer getting slapped by Windows for having 2 default gateways (even though each connection shows that it has a default gateway in the details). It is also showing up as a connection in the Domain Network's location.

Visually, this seems to be set up the way I would expect to have it, but I am still not 100% positive that I have good expectations.

Any input?

I have a dell optiplex 755 using A22 bios, I mainly have a question in the drives section that deal with raid autodetect. The options are raid autodetect / ahci, ( get error with this setting ), raid autodetect /ata ( will boot and can sign into windows, raid only & legacy... I had to replace the dell hd because it crashed and was unreadable use western digital hard drives and work fine so what are the differences between th ahci and ata settings that allow one to work and not the other, also the dvd/cdrom that came with the system died a long time ago replaced it with another drive and get the error message of sata 1 (blah,blah,blah), I just press F1 and it boots into windows fine ... this is a refurb system from a company that replaced it's older dell systems with newer ones.

A:Bios Sata Configuration question

Always include version of Windows in your posts.
If you installed Windows on a new HDD and now get an error message when SATA Mode is set to RAID AutoDetect/AHCI in BIOS, it means you didn't install the SATA driver during the Windows installation.
Depending on the version of Windows, you may have overlooked the option to press F6 to install the SATA driver early in the installation process.
You can leave it as RAID AutoDetect/ATA without the SATA driver, but you won't have the benefits of Intel's Storage Management technology. (You might not notice any difference...)
As for the Press F1 error, power off, unplug and press/hold power button for ~15 sec. Remove motherboard battery and press/hold power button for ~30 sec. Now reinstall the battery.  
Note, removing the battery will reset all BIOS settings back to the defaults, so if RAID AutoDetect/AHCI is the default setting for this PC model, you'll have to go in and change that to /ATA, assuming you don't start over and install Windows again with the SATA driver...
