Preferred Solution: Laptop all around capable

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.)

A: Laptop all around capable


for something like that go for the cheapest second hand one you can find, take a look on ebay theres loads...

I prefer Dell laptops and some of their older models go for about £125.

I have a friend who needs a high end laptop to edit video from a GoPro Hero4 camera

It is suggested :
For higher resolution videos (1080p 60fps and higher): We recommend at least 3.0 – 3.7 GHz Ivy Bridge processors (third-generation Core-based processors or AMD equivalent), 4 GB RAM, and a graphics card comparable to an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M. The graphics card and processor speed is important particulary for 4K and 2.7K resolution video playback.

I am from the UK and wonder if someone could make some suggestions as to a 15.6" laptop that could "cut the mustard"


A:Looking for Capable Laptop for 4k video

A laptop with those specs will likely be over £1000. If you get a laptop that has a higher resolution than 1080p than you have a better chance of it being able to handle 4k. I've narrowed it down a little bit and I would recommend taking a look here

Okay so recently my computer has been getting slower and I thought a RAM upgrade could not hurt at all. So how much RAM could this laptop take and what type of RAM would be best? My processor is the Intel Core i5-2430 btw.Also my fingerprint scanner will no longer work once my computer has been running for  awhile but will resume functioning once I restart my computer. Any way to fix this issue or is it just one little thing I'll have to live with? Thank you in advance

This might be a really stupid question. I'm helping a friend replace his discontinued motherboard, but he's unable to tell me the CPU it used, aside from the socket (LGA775).

His original mobo was this

The closest match I could find was this

The latter is a bit updated, but it doesn't support hyperthreading.

The only info he could give me was that it was a Intel Dual Core 1.8 ghz, but that makes it either a Pentium D 1.8ghz or a core 2 duo 1.8 ghz. Pretty sure Core2 duo doesn't support HT, but I belive some Pentium D did. If his CPU is indeed a HT capable Pentium D, will it still function on the latter MoBo, despite the fact that the Mobo is lacking in terms of HT support?

A:Hyperthread-capable CPU, but Non-capable Motherboard

The latter supports all, and more, CPUs that the original one does:
vs http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=858&MenuID=69&LanID=0
He'll have no trouble running the CPU. Except for having a craptastic ECS motherboard but that's no news for them.

Specs for my toshiba laptop

Here's my story:
When I got this laptop from a friend of mine i had it totally wiped clean so it felt more like a new computer. It was made for XP but it said it was capable of running Vista. So I installed Vista ultimate. It runs horribly slow. Nothing works on it. It takes a half hour to get to a browser and download something.

Do you think running Windows 7 instead of Vista would increase the speed and help my computer fuction better?

Can my laptop run Windows 7 PROPERLY?

Please help me out Thanks -Chris

I only know alittle about computer so bear with me

A:[SOLVED] Is my laptop capable of running Windows 7?

Does it only have 512 MB of RAM installed? You will need much more than that to make it run smoothly. 2 GB at least. This would be the main reason why the OS runs slow too. Also, you'll need to go to the Toshiba website and find the Win7 Drivers if they have any, you might end up needing them.

Hello everyone! I have a serious dilemma with my home networking scheme. I am stuck right now. I am rather new to the world of networking now as my devices are slowly expanding with more capabilities and the need for networking has finally arrived for me. I need your help. I just upgraded my multi-function printer to a new Brother MFC-L2700DW printer. I have a desktop computer (Windows 7) hardwired via Ethernet cable to one of my Netgear WNDR3700 router ports. I also decided to lose the USB printer cable from my old printer and go hardwired to one of the other router ports as well from this new printer to myrouter. In order for my desktop computer to use the wired networking capability, I used Brother?s DVD software to install the wired network connection (Peer-to-Peer). It worked well adding some nice additional utilities that comeswith the software as well. Now, the question: What do I use or what do I do to my Lenovo T510 laptop (Windows 7) to connect WIRELESSLY to the router so I canprint with this new printer? All Brother documentation shows either total wireless or total wired networking! I mean the setup type is total wireless between the laptop and the router and then form the router and the printer. Yes, I could do that and be totally wireless since the Brother is wired and wireless capable as with my laptop and router, but I chose not to. I could also opt for the ad-hoc option or have a connection be wireless directly between the laptop and the printer bypassing the... Read more

A:What do I do with my laptop to make it home network wireless capable?

Is the printer shared ?

Do you see it from the laptop ?

Personally, I would avoid going wireless with the new printer, I would hard wire it to the router.

But if you want to go wireless then just install the wireless software on your laptop.

All the instructions should be in the manual that came with the new printer.

I looked up that graphics processor and it looks like a competitive unit. Capable.26.5 GB/sec.Bandwidth. Your ram memory is a good speed (667mhz) but try to raise that to two gigs. It will give your gaming more headroom. I'm not real familiar with the T7250 but 800 mhz FSB, &4 MB of cache will game O.K. 2 cores of 2.0GHZ won't burn the trail but it should keep up. I noticed that the 'Raptor' series offers 7200 RPM hard drives. And that 2 Gigs of Ram = $90. Also comes in a 2.4 GHZ core 2. Good Luck.

I bought a D630 and when downloading drivers, I notice theres x64 drivers listed so how would I know its capable of using xp or vista x64? Would I notice better performance on it?

A:How do you know if its capable of x64?

They will only work if you have a 64-bit operating system installed. It's likely you only have 32-bit but right click my computer and go properties, should tell you if its 32 or 64 there, at least in Vista it does. 64-bit drivers are only for 64-bit so they're made to support that type of system, just as 32-bit are made for 32-bit. For the most part, those drivers aren't going to offer any form of speed difference, they're just drivers to run on that type of system as 32-bit won't work. How ever as a whole, 64-bit has better memory utiliisation and speed improvements, etc.

Hello, I was just wondering if my PC can handle 64-bit version of windows. My friend has been forcing me to switch from 32 to 64 but I'm a little bit worried because I have only 2gb of ram. Any suggestions? Should I go for 64-bit without upgrading my ram or stay with 32-bit? Your answers will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance By the way, I attached my pc specs for your reference.

A:64-bit Capable?!

Unless you plan to install 4GB or more of RAM, moving to 64-bit will not buy you anything. 2GB is the MINIMUM amount of RAM for 64-bit Win 7.

If you look at the screenshot you posted of your system info, at the bottom of the System section, it tells you that the system is 64-bit capable.

If I were to upgrade something on your system, the first thing I would upgrade would be your video card.

A:Is my computer capable of 64 bit?

I think your question is if your PC is capable of running a 64 bit operating system?

The answer is yes. However, you likely won't benefit from it. The HP website says the computer supports a maximum of 4 GB memory (one of the main reasons people use 64 bit operating systems is because they need/want more than 4GB memory). You also may have trouble finding 64 bit drivers for the motherboard components..

A:Crysis Capable?

That wireless card is pretty old(release in 2004, discontinued in 2007), only does Wireless-G, and has no official Windows 7 support; get a modern Wireless-N card like this: http://www.ebuyer.com/263388-tp-link-tl-wn951n-wireless-n-pci-adapter-tl-wn951n

My old PC with a Core 2 Duo E6550(oc'd to 3.5Ghz) with a 512MB Geforce 8800GT could run Crysis decently, I don't see why this system wouldn't be able to do it even better. But if you do have any extra money available, moving up to the Radeon HD 6850 would be better.

The power supply is a bit on the weak side, 530 watts and from a brand I'm not really familiar with so not sure on the quality if it.

I have a desktop that uses an Asus Z87 mobo. It is wireless capable (has an antenna you connect via two tiny cable connection to the back of the case). I have not used the wireless capability at all in the 4 years I've had the computer. I instead use an Ethernet cable direct connection between router and computer. Recently, the signal strength of that "hard-wired" connection dropped from 5 bars to 1, so something has gone very wrong. I swapped out the Comcast Gateway modem/router for a new one, but it made no difference. So today I disconnected the Ethernet cable, set up the wireless connection.

Since I am no longer using a wired connection, I expected to see only 3-4 bars of signal strength. To my delight, I'm getting 5!!! Great. . . but I haven't answered a basic question about why the Ethernet connection is all but unusable. Is it (a) because the Ethernet cable, which is 50' long and at least 10 years old, has developed a break, or (b) my LAN card is failing? Before I buy a new cable, I'd like to be sure that's the problem, not the LAN card. So my question is, does the wireless antenna connect to the LAN card, or (like USB wireless adapters), does it send its signal to the mobo by other means? If its signal goes thru the LAN card, it means the card is working. If the LAN card is not involved, it means my Ethernet cable is the culprit.

A:Wi-fi capable motherboard

If that 50' long ethernet cable is 10 years old and has developed a break, that likely is the problem.
You'll know for sure by replacing it.

Now I don't know if a sound card needs anything special or if a coax S/PDIF or optical S/PDIF output jack is all that's necessary to send the DD 5.1 signal.

If you want to find out go to Sart All programs > Accessories > System tools > System info or you can run Speccy if you have the machine running now.

A:how to check if my system is 64 capable?

First of all the make and model board is the thing needed here in order to look that up and find out if any Vista drivers were made available since those can be used on 7. After 2yrs. since Vista's release Asus came out with the Vista 64bit updates for the older Socket AM2 board in use here.

With the specifications looked up you can also go directly to the chipset manufacturer to see what they have available as well as simply allow the Windows updates to locate the optional hardware and software updates once the 7 installation is on and the update history is scanned.

Anyone know if there is a timeline for release of 1.5TB or 2TB hard drives suitable for RAID 5 or 6 arrays ?

And by that I mean no "green" junk that powers down the drives and makes them drop out of the array or having to mess around with TLER settings and praying they work and your controller does not mark all your drives as junk. For example, 3Ware does not have any of the 1.5 or 2 TB drives on its approved list for this very reason. You'd literally throw your away your entire array on the first "green" thing these drives did.

In short, I am looking for enterprise-type 7200RPM drives, especially those that can accept MAID commands from the controllers which spin the drives down but know they are still good and able to be powered back up quickly. Any info is appreciated.

I nead to catch some signals from a vibrometer and other instruments RS-232, serial 9pins (I'm a mechanical engineer, I really need to do that stuff anyway).I have an old serial/pci express card and I wonder if anyone have done this before, I mean trying to give X250 express card (32mm) capability.  I've browsed into the available docking stations for X250 and there're nothing like serial or express card compliant.   Please help me dodging the plan B (which is a BORING log of a huge dose of hand writen vibration data)Regards,Pedro

A:is it possible to get x250 expresscard capable?

I assume you mean 34mm.  There are USB ExpressCard readers and USB serial ports.  Having said that, I think there is a good chance some may not do what you want.  When you start talking about hardware devices that need serial ports, those are often devices that have their own drivers and legacy communication software.  My experience has been that those drivers usually require that the serial port be configured as Com1, 2, 3 or 4 using the legacy addresses that date back to the 1980's.  Those devices need to have something like a 16550 UART in order to map to the legacy addresses that were used for Com ports on the earliest PCs.  All the USB devices I have seen map to virtual ports that cannot be used for the legacy addresses.  There are cards that have 16550-compatible UARTS but they tend to be harder to find and more expensive.  If you need legacy addresses, I would guess that a USB serial port would have no hope of success.  A USB express card would probably work with a 16550-compatible serial card.  I say that because I use such a card in my W540 for a chip reader and the express card slot in the machine is mounted as a USB device.  If I were looking, I would try something like this:
but I have not tried it and cannot guarantee success.

That's what I heard from a guy. I'm not sure if that's true and I don't believe it either.

A:DDR2 not capable for gaming?

Buying a new laptop over Christmas; mostly for work purposes, but in all honesty work gets boring and I'd like to break the tedium with Oblivion. The thing is, I have no clue whatsoever about specs and attempts to find out for myself ended in confusion. I was hoping someone could recommend a laptop capable of Oblivion? It doesn't need to be running with high graphics (though I do intend to mod it) and I would place the price limit at around £700 (though probably lower). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

A:Laptops capable of Oblivion?

well, most laptops are not geared to gaming, but for Obilivion, you should be ok with the current laptops out, just be warned that the gameplay may not be smooth.

You want to get the ones with dedicated video memory, not shared memory.

I have decided to build a computer for my brother. He is far from wealthy, so I am building him an affordable system. This has brought me to the use of AMD Sempron. Here is the motherboard and processor.

AMD Sempron 64 3400+ 2.0GHz 256KB Cache 1600MHz FSB Socket 754 Hyper-Transport 64-Bit (Palermo) Processor with Fan SDA3400BXBOX at TigerDirect.com
Foxconn 755A01-6EKRS ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail at Newegg.com

Here is my question. The motherboard supports "AMD Athlon 64/Sempron" processors. The Sempron processor that I am going to use is a "Sempron 64bit Hyper-Transport" processor. Because the motherboard has the ability to support AMD Athlon 64, shouldn't it be able to support the "Sempron 64" as opposed to a normal "Sempron" ??

Thanks in advance. ;]

Hi, i want to upgrade to windows vista (maybe business or ultimate) and i?m planning to buy a PC with the following hardware:

Intel core 2 duo E6400 (2.13Ghz) or E6600 (2.40Ghz) Motherboard Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 socket 775 Video card nVidia GeForce 7600GS PCIe 512MB with SLI support 2GB DDR2 RAM

Is this enough to run windows vista without lagging?? (I also need to know if this is a good option for gaming, thanks :)) I hope u can help me with this, and thanks :)

A:Is my PC capable of running vista??

Hi, welcome to TSF

Vista system requirements

You'll be fine with those specs. Make sure you get a good quality PSU if you're going to be running dual SLI graphics cards.

What's your budget for the new parts? For gaming, I would go for a newer graphics card (8800?) if it's within budget. See here for more details on the various 7600 cards.

I have Windows XP Pro, SP3.

I have some experience with Linux, mostly Fedora. One of the best things in it, to me, is the Clipboard. In Fedora (Fedora Core) anyway, the Clipboard is much more capable than in Windows. For instance: you can put any number of items in the Clipboard, you just highlight something and it automatically goes in to the Clipboard (you don't have to right click the highlighted area and click Copy) and the best thing of all, to me, is that the contents of the Clipboard are saved when you log off and are there again when you log on.

Is there an application that runs in Windows that does these things?



A:Is there an app that makes a more capable clipboard

Yes there is. THis one is excellent and you can't beat the price Free.
