Preferred Solution: Buying new memory, motherboard support

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.)

Computer memory upgrades for ASUS M4A785-M Motherboard from Crucial.com

Above link shows all compatible RAM at Crucial.com using their configurator for your motherboard model.

Take your pick from that list. You can buy from Crucial directly or make note of the part numbers and buy that RAM at the dealer of your choice.

There are several speed choices in that list. In your situation, I would just get the standard PC2-5300, Non-ECC:


Priced at 49.99. You may be able to find that same part number at a lower price at another retailer such as Newegg.

Hello Iíve got some questions! I've had my CDRW burner ever since I got my computer in 1999. Yeah, I still have it and I am still using. It's still great! It used to have Windows 98, but now it currently has Windows XP. Back when my computer had Win 98 and Adaptec 3.5c for my CDRW burner, the burner worked fine. But after wiping my computer clean and installing Win XP I found out that Windows XP no longer supported the Adaptec software. So I bought Roxio Easy Media Creator 7 because I guess that's what the Adaptec company changed into. So I installed Roxio thinking that my CDRW burner would run on that instead. Now my CD burner doesn't work much at all. I'm sick and tired of it. It works when it feels like it, but most of the time it fails and I waste CD after CD or data on my CDís mysteriously disappears. Windows detects it as being unstable. I figured I should probably get a new one because Iím thinking that the one I have right now is very old and is too outdated to be supported by Roxio. Am I right/wrong?

Could somebody suggest what should I buy when I go out tomorrow? I want an internal CDRW. I don't need a combo DVD one because my computer probably couldn't handle it and because I don't really need DVD. I don't need the fastest one; I just want that is good quality and one that works. If I got a newer CDRW would there be compatibility issues with my computer or my CD ROM drive because they older or something? Do I just p... Read more

Hey Lenovo team, The P50 website for Lenovo India ( http://shopap.lenovo.com/in/en/laptops/thinkpad/p-series/p50/ ) does not have a configurator & online purchase platform unlike the US website ( http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/p-series/p50/ ). I emailed TheDoStore support ([email protected]), requesting information on the configuration options available in India and got the following response: "... unfortunately we don't have an expert who would be able to respond to you. We would like you to please call 1800 3000 9991 where an expert will be handle your query and give you the best possible advice.  ..."  - Not the most encouraging of emails. And the 'expert' team at 1800 3000 9991 was not very competant. They could confirm only the configuration that was available in stock and could not even confirm if other options (see below) were either out-of-stock or not-launched/not-available in India. Could somebody help me out with the following?Processor: Are the i7-6820HQ & Xeon E3-1505M options available?Display: Is the 4k IPS non-touch available?Storage options?And what are the buying options for the P50?Is 1800 3000 9991 really the only option? Or are there other resellers? Is it expected to be listed elsewhere online, where I can see and verify the configuration, rather than just trust an 'expert' over a phone call?

I'm looking for a way to cover a big house with wi-fi. I've already tested with WRT54GL and it wasn't enough, so my idea is to buy 2 routers with good coverage and link them into bridge/repeater/WDS mode (I don't even know the difference to be honest). Since I've never done that before, I'm looking for an advice on which routers to buy and how to make it work altogether?

At first, 2x Unifi LR LongRange was a promising solution, buy as far as I understand it, they both need to be physically connected into router with UTP cable, so that's out of equation because I can't drill holes into walls.

How about 2x ASUS RT-N12 D1, would they do any good? They have pretty decent reviews and are also cheap, but do they even support signal repeating?

A:Buying 2 routers that support bridge/repeater/WDS

The best solution is to get a wireless system which supports creating a "back haul" over 5 GHz between APs which then allows the 2.4 GHz radio to be solely dedicated to servicing wireless client traffic.

Hello everybody.

I am planning on getting a new CPU and motherboard this Christmas. However, I'm a little low on budget. Could you guys please recommend a CPU + Motherboard combination at under $200 ($150 if possible)?

My current specs are:

Motherboard : Asus P5B-MX / WiFi-AP
RAM : 2 GB (Transcend)
Graphics Card : XFX 9800 GT
Processor : Intel P4 2.93 GHz
OS : Windows XP Professional

Would it be a good idea to go for the AMD X2 6000+?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103272 At that price, wow, why not. It certainly would give your old P4 quite a thumping!

Is your copy of XP Pro a retail copy? If not and it's an OEM copy, you might run into trouble trying to migrate it to a completely different machine. Since, cost is an issue, this might make the Q6600 in the old board the best choice.

I am looking to buy a new motherboard, reason i want to do that is to get 8gb ram atm my motherboard only supports 4gb ram.

never bought a motherboard on its own before so not sure what is best and what ones i can have, i want a motherboard that can work with my ram/graphics card/hard drive etc so i dont have to buy everything again.


been looking at that one, fairly cheap and good reviews. if you know a better motherboard at a better price link me to that,

do i just buy that motherboard and connect my other hardware and its good to go? or do i have to do other stuff?


A:buying a new Motherboard.

No way we can answer that since you haven't told what hardware you have. What processor, memory, graphics card, case, etc do you have now? What motherboard do you have now?

Do you have a 64-bit version of Windows to support more than 4GB of RAM?

You may need to reinstall Windows if you replace the motherboard.

Personally I wouldn't buy an motherboard based on an old 700 series chipset.

Yes, the board will work.  Given that replacing the hard drive on this model requires a system board removal, if the drive you have is original to the system, consider replacing it along with the mainboard - you'll be doing all the labor anyway, so you may as well take care of the potential for a hard drive failure at the same time.

I'm contemplating doing what I think of as a major upgrade to my computer. I want to replace my motherboard, cpu, (and cooling fan), and ram. The reason I got on this track is that I wanted to upgrade my ram from 512 mb, to 1024. I"ve got PC 1066 RDram, and 512 mb will cost around $250 or so. To me it doesn't make much sense to go with old technology, when I can get the latest for not to much more than that. But, as this will be the most major upgrade I've attempted, I've got a lot of questions. I've looked at a lot of threads in the forums, and still don't have all the answers that I need to get started on this. If any of you guys can help me out on this I sure would appreciate it.

1. As I already have a computer that runs well, no problems, is all I have to do is take out the old motherboard/cpu/ram and install the new one using all the other original components, and then boot up? I doubt it. If I need to replace somthing else, what, and what else do I need to do? I'm going from and Intel motherboard, P4, 3.06 to AMD 64 3200+ or 3400+, and different ram. I've got a Gateway 700XL, full tower, 200 gig Maxtor hard drive, CD burner, DVD burner, floppy, Intel NIC, Intel IDE Contoller, Audigy sound card, with plenty of room inside. The IDE Contoller has kind of got me worried. I've done a search to find info on this, but I haven't found everything I need.

1. I don't think you will be able to keep xp installed and just switch motherboards, you probably will have to plan on just formatting(back up first) and doing a clean install. What do you mean by the ide controller has you confused? What are you wondering?
3. No, all atx aren't the same size, but the maximum size is about 12x9.6". My chaintech vnf4ultra nforce4ultra 939(I'd recommend it, but you already have an awesome agp card ) mobo is "atx", but actually like 12x8" or close to that. In smaller atx, like mine, they are just missing the outer edge of screw mounting holes. Your case should have the right standoffs already. I didn't use magnetic screw drivers, but it sure would have been handy at times. I guess it's better to be safe than sorry.
4. Using your existing install, will probably be problematic, if it works at all. I would think that you could use you existing xp cd. I mean it isn't like you'll be using it on 2 computers, you just want to transfer it to your new system. You might have to call microsoft to see for sure though.

oh yea.. and im new to overclocking, can someone hook me up with overclocking guides, or hints, and warnings please?.. thanks..

A:Buying a motherboard

Your budget is too low for the things you described. Here's one that would do the job quite nicely, and it's not too much more than your budget:


IMO - You really don't want to go super cheap on your mobo. You'll regret it later, especially if you're pushing your components hard by overclocking.

Okay, so basically, I've had a lot of trouble with my computer lately. It all started when I tampered with the registry, which was broke my PC so badly I had to have it formatted and I had to start from scratch.

I asked he guys at the repair place to "upgrade my PC so it is in line with modern standards"- I wanted a modern, working machine. They installed a new 230GB hard disk, as well as leaving my old 37.2GB one in there (which I used for storage when formatting the main drive), and they also put in an extra 512 MB RAM, giving me a total of 1GB RAM, which I believe is pretty decent. But, besides that, they removed nothing, and changed nothing, despite stressing that my sound card is crap and I have a meager processor (AMD Athlon 1GHZ).

I installed Windows XP Professional Edition and Service Pack 2, but after one or two sessions of my PC running smoothly and as fast as hell, it soon broke down again, starting up slowly, crashing my desktop and my explorer menus, as well as me losing one of the stereo tracks, meaning that when I'm listening to music I only hear half the audio, not to mention the audio crackling badly and often freezing and refusing to playback for several seconds in extreme cases.

Additionally, not all of my USBs work, meaning I've had to plug some really impractical stuff into the front ports, and I have two CD drives, one of which does not work at all, and I also believe they're supposed to play DVDs, but they don't.

A:Buying a new motherboard

From the sound of it, you may need to upgrade more than just your motherboard. You could just get another one but it would have to be second hand as you wont be able to buy a brand new motherboard that would work with your 1Ghz Processor.
The cheapest upgrade I can think of that would give you a decent upgrade for the money would be the following: (You didnt say if you were UK or US based, sorry)
1 x Socket 939 motherboard with an AGP socket (you should be able to get one off ebay but make sure it has IDE hard drive connections and not SATA) it should come with an integrated sound card anyway, so you wont need to buy a separate sound card. (Approx $20-30)
1 x AMD Athlon 3200+ Socket 939 (approx $30)
(Optional but maybe necessary - New DVD RW Drive, approx $30)

You will be able to use your New Hard drive and RAM with the above items and although it should give you some better performance without breaking the bank account. $50-60 for motherboard and processor together, or $80 if you get a DVD RW drive too.
It's possible that the old hard drive is causing problems and because its so small, id be tempted just to remove it.
You can also upgrade your graphics card as it is ageing, but if you are on a budget, you dont have to do that - its probably not causing any problems for you.

I am the rookie of all rookies.

I know next to nothing about computers, but have been educating myself for the past 3 days. I must have read 300 pages worth of material trying to learn.

This site--I stumbled upon it (THANK THE SWEET LORD)--has helped me more than everything else I've read.

So I am going to rely upon you gentlemen (and ladies?) to educate me.

I have an old CPU--Athlon K7 630 Mhz, 320 RAM 100 MHz FSB--that isn't cutting it with the new hard drive I have.

Being the ***** I am, I bought a 160 gigabyte hard drive not knowing the CPU isn't powerful enough to operate it and the software I have.

I'm in the process of getting more software that I need for my profession in addition to my lust for WarcraftIII battle.net. I love the custom games.

So, please, please, please help me. I would like to buy a Pentium IV CPU 2.8 GHz and the appropriate motherboard for about $200.00. I found the CPU for about $160.00. If what I want is not practical than I am willing to settle for the Athlon XP 3200+ and the corresponding motherboard. I found that CPU for about $150.00.


A:Need help on buying new motherboard. PLEASE!!

I think you might be asking more of your $200 than is possible. After buying the CPU you will only have $40 left over. You will not get a good complimenting motherboard for the processor with that much left over. Plus you need to remember that you will most probably need to update the memory, and possibly the power supply in the case. You will more than likely need to expand your budget or go to a more discounted processor. Look at www.computergate.com and the Celeron socket 478 processors. A drop below the P4 but a better buy at the same speed. With money left over !! YOu could get a nice motherboard and processor and stay below $200 maybe have enough left over for memory. As far as M/B go I reccommend either ASUS, Gigabyte, or Soyo. They have done well for me in the past, stay away from ECS have never seen M/B with more problems than those seem to have.

A:New motherboard worth buying?

hard to say

I don't know what your system has, but there are things to consider, If you want better game play, yeah, you'll want a mobo to handle AGP/PCIexpress, etc., but then- will your power supply handle it? RAM? CPU?

Just changing mobos alone involves quite a bit- new installation of operating system, which means you want to back up your current data, and then you start upgrading video cards, almost everything else will probably need at least SOME upgrading/tweaking, so there are lots of things to consider.

Some of the guys around here who know gaming will be more help than me, but I'm sure there'll be more to it than just a mobo change. Good luck!! :knock:

I'm looking for a new computer these days, and I need an advice for the motherboard. Actually I don't have much money, and I need a motherboard with an AGP slot (it will be better if it has a PCI-E either for further video card upgrade), supporting celeron-D cpu.
Looking in the stores nearby I noticed this one:
Asrock P4DUAL- 880 PRO - s.478, VIA PT880 Pro/ 8237R, HT, Prescott Ready, 800, 4xDDR400 Dual ch., PCI Express Graphics slot, AGP8x, Lan, sound, ...and so on
It seems to have everything I need and it's kinda cheap (as it has a Via chipset). What can you advice me? I don't need excellent performance, only a working PC And what does "dual" means - do I have to buy dual channel RAM only?
thanx a lot.

A:Question about buying a motherboard

"Dual" in the model name means it supports either PCI ex or AGP graphics, also it supports dual ram technology which you will have to install in identical pairs.
Use single if you don't want dual ram set up. See link for manual

I am currently totally broke after buying a new Graphics card and a new PSU. Now I need to change my motherboard because my current one has BIOS from HP which blocks all overclocking facilities .

I want to overclock my q6600 to minimum of 3.2 from its stock speeds but I have a new heatsink and fan for extra cooling. Now the problem is that I need a very cheap motherboard which has a good chipset for overclocking and also which will support PCI-E 2.0.

I have looked up couple of motherboards but I can't decide which one to get, I was planning on to getting ASRock P45DE3. So any one has any suggestions for me? Furthermore I was looking at one site and they are selling (Asus P5G41T-M-LX, Intel G41, S 775, PCI-E 2.0 (x16), DDR3 1333(OC), SATA 3GB/s, mATX, On Board VGA) I duno if there is a mistake somewhere but they are displaying in the title that this motherboard has a PCI-E 2.0 but I have checked intel's chipset specs and that suggests G41 cannot support 2.0.

If you don't mind a factory refub then you should consider this board from EVGA, it will overclock nicely.

Hello everyone, I am looking to buy a new motherboard for my Z50-70, as I see this as my only option for my SSD/HDD to get detected in BIOS.

I have scoured eBay, I could not find one.My question is: Does anyone have a spare/not used or a Z50-70 lying around they would like to sell? I live in Denmark. Best regards,Rasmus.

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000 3.1GHz Socket AM2 1MB L2 (2x512KB) Cache Retail Boxed Processor - £68

Motherboard ASUS M2N68 nForce 630a Socket AM2+ - £50


A:Processor + Motherboard: Worth buying?

well hat depends on what your other components are and what games you'll be playing, but besides these things, the combo looks good.

A:Help With Buying Memory

Read other 9 answers

Okay I have a question.
Here is the memory that I currently have:
512 MB Corsair XMS PRO model #: CMX512-3200C2PRO

I want to add another stick but I need to make sure it has the same timing and everything.

1). The model # is the same on this one

2). But there is this one too

Here is the main question:
In my BIOS the memory timing is AUTO and it is currently:
CAS latency 3
Min RAS active time 8T
RAS to CAS delay 3T
Row prechange time 3T
Row to Row delay 2T

According to Corsair's website my module should have timing of 2-3-3-6.

Should I change the timing in my BIOS to this? If I do that I think I need to buy the first module that I listed. If I don't change the timing, will the second module work?

I don't know much at all about changing memory timings, so I appreciate any help.

A:buying new memory

I wouldn't mess with RAM timings in the BIOS. Leave it as it is if it's working fine, since it's very easy to fry memory by maladjusting the timings.

I've read a number of postings but am still going to post this question because I want to make sure I have this absolutely right. From what I understand a system memory involves 2 memory sticks, not just 1 . For instance, my currect system (A Dell Dimension 3000) is currently running with 512 MB of system RAM. If my math is correct, that means I currently have two 256 MB sticks. And, If I'm going to increase my systems RAM from 512 to 1024, then I'll want to buy 2 512 MB sticks, because if I buy just a 1024 stick and use it to replace one 512 MB stick, the computer will still run at 512 MB. Does this sound right? I'm currently in the process of some upgrades (added DVD/CD Drive, added a GE Force 6200 OC graphics chip) to play Oblivion and believe the final upgrade should be a memory upgrade. So, am on the path or still floundering in the dark re: memory? Thanks for the help.

A:Re: buying memory

nope. not necessarily. It depends on the type and configuration of ram you have. You can have 1 stick of ram in single channel mode.

If you have more than 1 stick, your motherboard may or may not support dual channel. In which case you have twin pairs of matched sticks. The combined memory is larger and the memory runs faster in dual channel. If you have more than 1 stick in single channel mode- you have more memory, but it doesn't run as fast as duel channel. The speed difference is not really noticable.

There are some cases where you can have 3 or more sticks in dual channel. Most often dual channel is an even number. In some rare cases it is not.

Some types of ram like rambus, require twin sticks. These are not duel channel and it is a proprietary format used in some editions of dell.

almost always memory runs better when you have matched sticks.

get two 512 sticks for 1gb of memory rather than 1 stick of 1gb.

sell the old memory. be sure to read the FAQs on installing. http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic47210.html

Your motherboard will only support one type so stick with the same type you have. It won't support DDR2.

Hello there.

In a recent computer build, I used two 512 sticks of PC3200 400MHz CL2 Hyper X Kingston RAM for my ASUS A8R32-MVP Deluxe motherboard, aiming for a 1 gig dual-channel configuration. As it turns out, this was a stupid decision, since that RAM's dual-channel potential was build for an intel board (with the A8R is not) and as such, it would not post with the sticks in dual-channel configuration. To remedy this (since two sticks of intel ram that's not dual-channel is a major bottleneck for my performance) I was planning on getting some new RAM. After some research, I settled on this ram; two sticks of 1gb Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2, perfectly capable for dual-channel configurations, tested on lots of intel AND AMD boards. Now, being a relative newbie at building computers, I have a few questions.

Is there anything I have to think about when changing my RAM sticks? Any cleanouts that have to be done? Do I have to backup anything?

Since the voltage is different on the Kingston RAM (2.6V) and the Corsair (2.75V on their homepage, and 2.5V on my retailer's homepage) do I have to change anything in the bios after I put in the new RAM (i.e. upping the voltage (whatever that is anyway) to match the value that the new RAM requires?)

Also, there seems to be a sequence of numbers that lists in the specifications on these different memory sticks. 2-3-3-6 for the Corsair RAM and 2-3-2-6-1 for the Kingston. It lists under latencies, I belive. What does this mea... Read more

I built my own computer, and need to upgrade it even further with the memory. Originally I bought 256mb ram, planning on upgrading later. The time has come and am asking you (all) if I should buy 512mb ram, or save up longer and go for 1gb ram? My computer takes ddr 400 pc2100 ram, and some kind of ddr2 ram (I deal with ddr).

A:Help with buying memory....

All depends on what you use your computer for, really.

But as a generic answer to a generic question, 1Gb of ram is pretty much the standard these days.
