Andytay70's Current Configuration

Q: Andytay70's Current Configuration

Finally got time to do my config!
I use Macrium Reflect to do weekly backups, Hostman to block ads & Nasties etc, I only download from reputable sites

Preferred Solution: Andytay70's Current Configuration

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: Andytay70's Current Configuration

You're safe. Isn't AVAST premier on top of COMODO, MBAE, MBAM real-time a bit overkill, though? CIS + MBAM and Crystal Security/Zemana on-demand is quite a bit of malware prot by itself. Thanks for sharing your config.

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
Motherboard: Gigabyte EP43-S3L
CPU: Intel:E7200 Core2Duo 2x2.53
Ram: Kingston:2x2gb 833mhz
GPU: GTX 560 ti
Soundcard: None
Storage:1x250gb(windows), 1x200gb, 1x1tb, 1x2tb
Case: Cooler Master 690II
Cooling system: cpu stock, gpu stock, cm690II stock (one fan on the back)

Other possibly related components:
Monitor: SM P2370HD
Mouse: G5
Keyboard: G11
Headset: Siberia v2
Speakers: X540

My budget is 700eur, so here is what I was thinking, while having in mind that I will be using this pc mainly for:
-Video encoding (x264)
-3D modeling
-Running more virtual machines

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

Well, this was my standard setup so far. As I'm planning to upgrade to W10 soon, I want to expand/alter this accordingly. Especially after a company I work for has had a close encounter with Locky Ransomware. I am hoping to learn a lot from more experienced users here.

That's it for now.

Best Regards,

Nice setup, however you can consider setting UAC to max and OS updates to "automatic".
My second thought is Admuncher - do you really need it since you have uBlock Origin? Isn't AdMuncher a dead product?

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,

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.

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.

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

OK, simply put I'm sick and tired of other programs running in the background hijacking my current window.

ie: I start a process in one window that may take awhile, switch to something else to work on... when the background process is done, depending on the program, it will often force itself to the front. VERY frustrating when you're working on something else, then some background task decided "No, I'm going to take you out of that form box your typing in because I'M coming to the front".

Is there a setting anywhere that can stop background program from hijacking the current window you're working in?

I need to set up three user accounts on two computers the accounts on each computer is going to be monitored.
Each user will be assigned access for certain folder or files and certain applications, like internet explorer.
And all usb ports and dvd drive will be blocked. Only the admin will be allow to have full access.

So i need to do something that allow ( managers) to monitor employees activity on the system during working hours.

On one pc is windows xp pro on the other os windows 7 home premium.

Any idea how i can acomplish this task?

Also the users will be using almost all the same programs and files just the with different information.

But for Windows 7 Home Premium you will not have the

I have an old P3 system that I let my son use for internet browsing, email, etc. It has been rock solid for 6+ years until lately and I think the issue of not booting properly is that the master CD-ROM gave up the ghost. And so I took that out hoping that is all it will take.

Here is my question (and I feel so much like a noob; I did try to google but I got nothing): Where do I place the tab to take it from slave to single configuration? As slave the tab was placed on the far left in the verticle position. Am I correct in that to make it singular I need to place it horizontally on the bottom two prongs center-right?

I hope I am making myself clear. This is an old system and it has been years since setting it up and I don't have my manuals anywhere. I couldn't even access Buslink's website.

Thanks for your help.

A:CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

The jumper will fit on the pins, based on what is imprinted or embossed on the drive. It is usually very difficult to see... but if you use a flashlight or other device you can place at different angles, you can see how the jumper choices are stamped into the metal. Most often the center two are Slave, the right is Master, and the left is Cable Select.
I suggest you jumper it as master.
If it is a known brand, you can find a drawing on the website of the optical drive manufacturer.

After my bios(1701) posts i am prompted "USB Over Current Detected System Reseting In 15 Seconds, Please Remove Over Current USB Device". This happens even with no USB devices connected to my rig. I have checked there are no shorts or components touching anywhere nere any of my USB ports. I can get the system to run by disabling the error reporting in my bios. But can anyone tell me why this is happening? Is it a false positive? Is this problem common with my board(ASUS P5N32-E SLI)? Is it safe/advisable to run my system with the error repporting tunned off? Sandrasoft and Everest all report everything fine regarding all my USBs.

And it does. What's it need, new power supply?

A:Over current

Apparently this is a common problem. Below is a link to a general set of solutions to try, including checking the grounding on the case, changing the BIOS, and checking the jumpers (apparently on some of the ASUS motherboards, there is a jumper that allows you to keep USB power flowing even if the system is shut off).

I'm building a gaming comp and i've been looking at amd's line of dual core processors (i am currently considering the 4400+ toledo). While dual core sounds great for multitasking i wonder at the relatively low speeds of the current processors (2.2-2.8 ghz, although overclocking them is supposed to be easy) and how they will run processor hungry games in the future. Is it worth waiting till a faster dual core processor comes out (or just get an athlon fx), or will games run fine with the current ones (i'm thinkin battlefield 2 and doom 3). Also, is paying up for the 2*1mb cache worth it? Thanks a lot.

A:My current HJT log

I don't see any malware in this log, but I see no evidence of an AntiVirus program on your system. This must be resolved. Connecting to the Internet without antivirus protection is a "Welcome" doormat for malware. It can take as little as eight seconds to infect an unprotected computer.

Here are a few very good free Antivirus products which are available:Avast!
Avira PersonalEdition Classic
Select one of these, or another of your choice. Do not install more than one antivirus program because they will conflict with each other. It is imperative that you update your antivirus software at least once a week (even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch new malware that may have come out.

Hello, a few days ago, I purchased computer parts off of amazon. My parts will be here soon, but I forgot one thing..... the CD rom. I know that this isn't a necessary part for a computer in all cases, but I need it for my Windows 7 disc I have. I do not want to buy a new windows so the best way for me would be the CD. The computer I have right now is a Dell Inspiron desktop. So I was wondering if I could simply use the CD rom in this computer for my new one. And if I can, is there anything I need to know before taking it out of the computer? I would also appreciate it if someone could tell me or give me a link to how to install it. I know how to install everything else. If you need to know which parts I am getting I will be glad to tell you. Thank you!

A:Can I use the CD Rom in my current pc for my new pc?

As long as the new computer has a parallel ata interface (the wide flat-band connection) the older cd-rom drives should work. Most operating systems have standard drivers to work with them.

Hey guys,

I'm thinking about building a new computer, but using my current 60GB HDD and DVD/CD-RW Drive with it.

Can I use my current HDD on a new system without any problems? When I install the new WinXp, will it format the HDD back to normal or will it screw up?

Thanks if you can help me out :grinthumb

EDIT: I'm not worried about keeping any data, just being able to actually use the drive. Just incase you needed to know or not. :knock:

A:Possible to use current HDD in new PC?

So long as you make sure to delete all your partitions and then reformat there shouldn`t be a problem.

The reason you will have to do the above is because your HDD will have all the drivers for your old mobo on it and wont work with your new system because of this.

Well I was playing some good old Minecraft with a friend and then my computer was about to die so me being stupid got quickly to put it on the charger. When I got up, i bent the usb connector for my headset. and the it said something along the lines of "over current" and now that usb port doesn't work. the other two do so its not my motherboard i dont think..

So basically I would love to know why its not working and if there is anyway to fix it without changing my motherboard.

Dell Inspiron 15R
Intel i3-2310m Dual core

A:Usb Over-current?

Sounds like a faulty port. Likely the internal pins are shorted/damaged, thus the error. Lucky the whole USB controller didn't fail. If you need additional ports, you could install a USB controller card.

Oh and if you need any more info to help me upgrade, please ask me to do so.

A:Want to upgrade my current PC

Your CPU will be a problem, since Socket 754 CPUs are a thing of the past now. Otherwise, for a good upgrade, you would get greater performance with another gig of RAM and a new video card (and PSU, if need be). I'd recommend an HD 3850 or an HD 3650 (whichever fits your budget), and an Antec Earthwatts PSU (any of them will do).

If possible, upgrade the entire system, since all the technology you're currently using is almost obsolete. If it's not, no problem, the upgrades above will give you a significant boost in performance as well.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

Hello all, I hope you camn help me with my current issue.

My computer turns on normally however after passing the initial screen it comes up with an error saying "USB Over Current Status, system will shut down in 15 seconds".

This happened once before but I seemed to have fixed it by simply changing the front panel plug to a different usb point on the motherboard, this worked find for a few months before happening again although changing to a different port doesnt seemed to have worked, this time.

Removing the front panel plug from the motherboard also doesn't seemed to have worked, along with removing the front panel card itself. The usb's were badly damaged so I assume this must have caused a short.

Also at some points I was asked to "insert boot device and press any key" even though in the BIOS the hard drive was clearly there. This seemed to only happen when I removed the front panel plug from the motherboard.

Now, with the front panel card gone, the BIOS cannot detect my hard drive.

I am currently contemplating either buying a new front panel card or a new motherboard (if the shortage damaged it). I have an ASUS M5A78L-M LE and running Win 7 Ultimate.

Is there any way to get around this issue?
Will a new front panel work without replacing the motherboard?
Is it worth upgrading to a new motherboard without any issues with Windows 7? Or will I have to get an identical motherboard?

Any help will be apreciated.

A:USB Over Current Status

What sockets are on the 'front panel' you removed ?

What does 'the Usb's were badly damaged' mean ? What was damaged ?

In the Bios make sure the HDD is set as 1st boot device.

Im working on an older PC for someone and whenever I plug the PC in, regardless of whether or not the power is on, there is a current running through the case and the metal bottom of the keyboard. I've tried running it on a different circuit and I've already swapped out the power supply (250w AT) and it still does this.

Any clues?

I am not currently having any real problems with my computer but occasionally I do get popups from the same companies, which leads me to believe they might have a little something in my registry. Also, gnucleuslan has been uninstalled and deleted, but Registry info still remains for it, and it is listed under startup command or whatever, so I want that to be gone. I just want to make sure I dont delete anything that I need to run.

here is my log.

What is the maximum current the USB ports are meant to be able to supply? I am disappointed that it can't charge my small Samsung phone. I have an inline USB current measurer and the laptop USB when connected through this to the phone can only supply about 330mA. When the phone is plugged into the power adapter which came with it the current is about 700mA.

A:Max. current available for charging from USB

Find the usb root hub in device manager and select properties and the power tab. It will tell you the max power allocated to usb ports. Mine is 500 mA. And if I tried to measure it with a meter it would likely be lower due to resistance of the device and cable so 330 mA is about right. There is no way to alter the power allocation.

I have one server that is my file and print, DNS, PDC, and AD server. I am getting a new server in that will be taking its place.

I want to take everything off that server, and put it into the new one such as files/folders (with all the permissions staying the same), Users and Computers stuff, and all the AD stuff.

What is the best way to do this? I work for a company that has about 20 users. Would it be more beneficial for me to just rebuild the AD? If I transfer the files and folders from one server to the next, will it keep the permissions or not? If so, will it mess up things if I don't have the user accounts set up before I tranfer? As you can see, I have a lot of questions. Is there someone in here that is very knoledgable with what I need to do, and any chance you could help me? Is there a really informative document that will walk me through the process?

Thanks for any information!!

Installing W7 64 bit to new ssd. The current hdd will still have the current Win7 OS on it. As long as I have the bios boot set to the ssd can I leave the other win 7 OS on the mechanical drive in case of problems ?

Will this cause any problems ?

A:SSD install - can I keep OS on current HDD ?

It shouldn't cause problems if you have it configured for dual boot but most of the time it is two different OS

Is there a real reason why you need the same Os on another drive

I would think it would be easier to image the drive if it is small enough to fit on the SSD and use the other HD as the back up for more information you don't have to but if you are looking to boost perfomance i would no doubt just start over best results

clean OS clean drive can't beat that with a baseball bat

already have my user profile on an HDD when I setup the first ssd wondering will I need to link the user profile again to the hdd after installing new ssd thanks

A:replacing current ssd

Not if you transfer Win7 via an image. SSD - Install and transfer the Operating System

If you reinstall you'll need to move via the Location tabs again.

However as you should have discovered by now, there are problems with moving the User profile or folders to another HD such as the HD then becomes part of the System and cannot be separated for imaging purposes, some download .exes will give unfixable permissioning errors, etc.

For these and other reasons if you reinstall we now suggest you instead simply rightclick on each user folder on the HD to add it to the related Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums - you'll need to create one for Downloads. Leave the empty C User folder in Library so you can easily see if anything writes there to drag it over to HD folder.

If you're only reimaging and have had no problems with this so far then you can leave it the same.

Once I click on f1,it boots fine but would like to know how to fix this usb over current error. Is this something that can't be fixed without replacing the motherboard? I unplugged all usb devices and uninstalled all in device manager but didn't help at all.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Is this the same computer you've had the problem with since November?

I'd guess a motherboard problem, but replacing it will cost more than the computer is worth.

when i try to turn my computer on it is a black screen that says USB DRIVE OVER CURRENT.. then shuts itself down.. i unplugged it from wall nd held the power button for 30 sec. to drain power from it.. now when i turn it on it stays on the compaq startup screen... please someone help... i have no clue what im doing

A:Usb drive over current...

There may be a short-circuit somewhere inside the system case, so unplug from the wall socket, open the case, touch the metal chassis to purge static from your body, then examine all wires and connectors carefully to make sure none are bare or touching each each other. Also check that no metal parts of the motherboard are touching the chassis.

Ok, if that is the reason why people perfer PCI why doesn't the people that make agp cards make an agp x16. I mean intel isn't going to stop making mobos because the amds are cheaper and more powerful. Why are they not going to make agp cards anymore I never got this and when was this announced. Why can't they make better agp cards like pci is doing? And right now is their really a big diffrence in performance between PCI x16 and agp cards. Besides the cost

A:So Pci E X16 is twice as fast as the current agp 8x

It's all a matter of bandwidth. PCIe slots have more bandwidth than AGP slots. In otherwords, the slot allows information to be passed at a higher speed between the graphics card and the other parts of your computer.

But in reality, most cards don't even use the full bandwidth provided by AGP. This is why a PCIe card and an AGP card don't really perform all that differently. A PCIe version of the 6600GT (for example) and the AGP 6600GT perform about the same. The card doesn't use the full potential of the AGP slot (i.e., it is not in any way limited by the lower bandwidth of the AGP slot), and it doesn't come close to using the full bandwidth of the PCIe slot.

But PCIe is the way of the future. Since it does allow for higher bandwidth, the card makers are focusing new technology on PCIe. To be honest, I haven't done the research, but it is possible that the newest cards (X1900XT for example) may even require a bandwidth that AGP can't provide.

A:Should I keep my current AV program?

One of the facts of life in today's computing environment is that no single security program is going to protect you 100% of the time from 100% of the threats being created/released by the thousands daily.

I was wondering if anyone could give me an example of some source code that could give the time in the form of HH.MM

i know it can be done as follows but i need it in the above format so i can search an array for that time.

#include <iostream>
#include <time.h>
#include <string.h>

char currenttime[26];
time_t t;
strcpy(currenttime, ctime(&t));
the problem with this is that it out puts the time in the format

www MMM dd hh:mm:ss yyyy

where w is the weekday
M is the month in letters
d is the date in the month
h is the hour
m is the minute
s is the second
y is the year

could i make a string by taking the hour.minute and comparing them against the times (the times in the array ar in teh format 7.56, 17.38 etc)

A:c++: Getting current time

This should help.
