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 am cosidering overclocking my 2 geforce 8800 ultra's from 768mb to at least 1024mb

And i also would like to overclock my quad core 2.5 to about 2.9 - 3.0
but befroe i do, i would like to know if any has made this possible before.

Don't want to start O/Cing and something goes wrong, bearing in mind this will be my first time O/Cing.

Any help on this matter would be great.

Main purpose is to have all the settings on GTA4 on highest possible and still have memory left over to play without probs.

much apreciated.

Specs are as follows:

Vista Ultimate x64 Build 6001 with SP1
Intel Core2Quad Q9300 2.5GHz
XFX 780i SLI DDR2
8GB Kingston Hyperx Ram
2x Nvidia GeForce 8800 Ultra 768mb (XFX/EVGA)
ThermalTake 1200w Power Supply.
Samsung 500Gb SATA HDD
Samsung DVD/RW
Cooling - 140 mm Top fan, 120mm Rear fan, 12mm Front Fan, Artic Cooler Freezer pro 7

A:Overclocking an Nvidia 8800 Ultra/ Quad Core 2.5

You can't overclock your Ultra like that. You can only overclock the frequency speeds, like the core speed and memory speed, not the amount of physical memory.

Overclocking your CPU from 2.5 to 3.0GHz should be easy. I overclocked my CPU from 2.66GHz to 3.0GHz easily with no problem.

Your graphic cards are fine for GTA4. GTA4 doesn't use SLI yet, and 1 Ultra is enough. A friend of mine is running GTA4 with a Core i7 920 and a single Ultra and he gets 65fps on max everything.

Core i7s run GTA4 amazingly, quad cores run it well, but still get some slowdowns on maximum everything.

Hi all =). I'm getting a computer made with a 450w power supply. I'm getting a Geforce 6800 Ultra at least, but the company recommends a 480w supply for this card. I've heard of people having problems with their power supply not being able to cope with this card, but I don't know exactly at what power their power supplies ran. Will I run into any problems with the power supply I'm getting, or should I upgrade to 480w or more?

Don't know if you need this information also, but I think this may also effect my power supply:

Asus K8V SE Deluxe Motherboard
Athlon 64 3400+
1.5 GB pc3200 DDR Ram
120 GB HDD

Also heard that AMD uses less power than Intel or something...sooo I was thinking that perhaps my graphics card will not be affected as much because of this...but dunno. Help would be greatly appreciated =D.
 

A:Regarding Geforce 6800 Ultra, Ultra Extreme, or Asus v9999 Ultra Deluxe

One, Use a title once.

Two, nope nVIDIA GeForce 6800 families or newer REQUIRES 480w of psu minimum, PERIOD. it is not matter how much watts amd or intel uses, what you means that you must have 480w or higher to have GF 6800 working properly.

Recommendation, get ATI Radeon 9600XT or 9800XT, they merely used up less than 350w.

Lucan

You will get better games or things out of ATI instead of nVIDIA due to power usages

Hi guys,

Quite often my C: drive is used 100% blocking the system for tens of seconds up to few minutes.
Any idea what could cause this?

I've tried turning off the antivirus, firefox... same thing.

Thanks!

A:SSD processed 100%

I would look into the 100% disk activity a little more and try and find what is using the disk. In Task Manager on the process tab you can view the entries in sort order according to disk activity with highest at the top.

anybody know what processes i can get rid of? System Idle seems 2 be taking around 80-98 CPU, can i get rid of this? or is this needed? and when im away from here, 4 around 25 mins.,it takes a while 2 do stuff, like it's loading like crazy, is this why, from the System Idle process, any help? thanks alot...
 

A:win. 2000 processed

If you are asking about system idle taking up to much process time and it should then you have to do some reading. Ending the system processes is a very tricky and very risky thing. You can disable your computer really bad with stopping the wrong one.

You are going to have to research each and every process and also write down thew name of the process you are going to end so if you goof you might have to re-start it thru safe mode if you can, if you can not then you will have to try a repair-installation of Windows.

My suggestion is to just leave them alone and use your computer and if you still want to do this do some research on this before starting.

Hi guys, back after a few months away from this great site/forum.

I have a question regarding the CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard I was searching all over the web but can't seem to find out if this motherboard will support the new AMD 64 X2(dual core) 939 CPU? It says it supports the AMD 64 & 64 FX CPUs, but what about AMD 64 X2(dual core) 939 CPU?

If anyone here can help me out, I'd be grateful. Thanks.
 

A:CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Most nForce4 based motherboards support such CPUs but not all of them do so out-of-the-box. Make sure to have a motherboard from the latest production batch. If not, it might be handy to have a single-core to flash the BIOS in case it doesn't want to power up with the dual-core one.

Can I put an Ultra ATA hard drive in a laptop that used a SATA hard drive. The reason I want to do this is because a friend's laptop won't boot , not even in safe mode,( imo the hard drive is nackered) and of course there was no backup done.The files are needed. Now of course you'll say why not use Acronis to transfer the files to an external HDD but the problem there is that none of my friends laptops USB ports are working( haven't checked this but I'm assured it is true), so there is now way to connect an ex. HDD to it. What I'm thinkin of doin is putting the HDD into an old laptop of mine and using Acronis to transfer the files to CD or an external hdd.

What ye think? I'm inexperieced with laptops so please be gentle if this is a stupid post.
 

A:Can I put an Ultra ATA drive in a laptop

It is possible that you might be able to connect an ATA HDD to the buss where the CD/ DVD drive is connected. Whether that is SATA or PATA is anybody's guess.

Although, if the Laptop's HDD is broken, I'm not exactly sure what you think you're going to accomplish by doing so. If it's dead, it's dead, and that would require the drive to be dealt with data recovery methods. Very expensive.

Plan "B" involves running a cable to a desktop from the laptop, and offloading the data that way.

However, dead is dead, be forewarned

Hello everyone. I was hoping you all may know of an excellent laptop that can handle or
run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim PC game on Ultra settings smoothly?

From a few hours of searching, I have come across a few laptop brands and models
backed up by actual videos showing that it can handle the game with High or Ultra settings.
I am going to put all that I found in a list below and would like to know which one you
think would be the best one out of the bunch. I know prices will vary and some of these
are no longer in stock, but I may still be able to find them elsewhere, so I will still include those too.

If you all have any suggestions on a laptop outside of this list, do let me know.
I was hoping the price range could be below $1,000. I will try to include links to
each one so that you can compare the specs faster instead of having to search each one up.

They say on most of these videos that the recording program they use to record their game play causes the skips and makes the FPS drop by 10 or so.

HP Pavilion DV6-6135DX ------> Video showing this on High Settings, not Ultra

Toshiba Satellite S55-A5294 ----> An older version that can run Battlefield 3 on Ultra
Toshiba Qosmio X505 ------> Video Showing Ultra Settings

Acer Aspire V5-572P-6858 -----> An older model running on High Settings

A:Laptop that can run Skyrim on Ultra Graphics

You can find laptops for gaming. And as you noted, you will pay more for a laptop over a desktop, sometimes as much as twice the price. And while it's nice to have a mobile computer, it's only mobile in the sense that it's easy to pick up and move about. Run time on battery power is very short when you are stressing the hardware and gaming machines are more likely to experience heat related issues. Just a few things to stress to your friend before spending the money and learning the hard way.

My hard drive recently went on me, so I ordered a new one. I guess I did it kind of hastily, since upon its arrival today, I came to find out that it is an SATA hard drive, while my laptop only furnishes an Ultra-ATA (44 pin) connection. DOH! My question is: does anyone know if an adaptor exists which would allow me to use this new hard drive on my laptop? And if so, any ideas where I might be able to get it? I did find that such adaptors exist for desktop computers, but haven't been able to find anything for the laptop. I've also found the universal USB adaptors, but that won't help either due to the fact that this will be my primary/only drive, and needs to be bootable. Any help here would be appreciated, I'm really trying to avoid returning this thing.

Thanks in Advance!

Keyboard wont work. Win7. Original keyboard was a ps2 and just quit. Bought new MS 2000 USB and 2 days later it quits. Worked for 30 seconds in different USB plug and unplugged itself,(made the do-doot sound).Can't get into BIOS. Any Ideas?

A:Your submission could not be processed because you have logged in since the previous

Shut down the computer. Unplug the USB keyboard. Unplug all other USB devices. Boot the computer without the keyboard in. When it is at the desktop, plug in USB Keyboard in to the Back USB port of the computer not the front as those ports are weaker. If your keyboard came with a driver disc install that. If that fails and your mouse works, go to the Device Manager. If there are any yellow marks or under USB if there is an Unknown Device, Right click it and Uninstall it. After that Right click any device and choose Scan For Hardware Changes. If it asks for the driver, then install it.

Problem 2: Win 7 ran updates following fresh Win 7 install. After sytem reboot, my ViewSonic LCD monitor is showing 'no signal' (DVI to DVI connection). Tried my card on another PC - it definitely works. Plugged it back into my build - card worked fine. Until another Win 7 update / system reboot - and back to the original 'no signal'!

Brand new build - you prob need to 'format' your other Sata drive!

Why are you not running Ahci esp if you want to hot swap/run raid etc in near future!

Driver install sequence to try
> OS
1.) Install Chipset drivers from Intel web site, then reboot
2.) Install IMSM drivers from Intel Website, reboot
3.) Install Graphic Card drivers, reboot (turn off antivirus/security etc first)
4.) Install LAN drivers from ASUS web site

Hello,
I have an XPS15 laptop (it says Reg Model P56F under the XPS door at the bottom).  This laptop is extremely sensitive to vibrations, hits or jolts to its case.   For example it can be running normally, but if you drop a pen or pencil, onto the keyboard area, it will freeze.  If you have it in your lap and rotate around a chair and it bumps the edge of a desk... it will freeze.  If you bump it into anything, chances are it freezes.  Usually it freezes with a scrambled screen, sometimes portions of the scrambled bits are flickering or moving, like an old NES game that you had to blow on the cartridge before it played.  Sometimes it freezes with the screen going black (but the backlight remains on).   The only way to recover is to hold down the power button until the laptop turns off.  Then you can power it back on and wait 5 minutes at the Windows 10 Please Wait... spinning circle until you can log in again.

I've already had the laptop sent out for this issue.  It came back with an upgraded 4k touch screen.  I love the screen, its such a great, free upgrade.  But the problem persists.  It's not AS sensitive as it was when it had the regular 1920x1080 matte screen.  Before you could drop a pen NEXT to the laptop and that small of a vibration would cause the freeze.  Now you can bang on the table as much as you want, and as long as you don't touch the actual laptop, it remains oper...

Hi,
I just got a flip video camera Ultra and shot a few videos. When I plugged the USB cable into my Toshiba laptop (I use windows vista if that matters) and double clicked on the icon in "My computer", it said I had to format the disc. Ive had this happen before with other things, I don't remember what they were though unfortunately. So I clicked "format" and when I did a box popped up alerting me that by formatting the disc, it would erase everything on it.

I cant afford to loose the videos I have on my flip cam. Is there some way to get the videos to upload onto my laptop without formatting the camera or as my computer calls is, the disc? When i read the info that came with the flip video camera, it said that some software was supposed to open and install when I plugged the USB into my laptop, but nothing popped up. I had to open up "my computer" and find the camera icon.

Also just to clarify, this is a Flip Ultra, not an HD.
This is a link to it on amazon:

Hi there,
Im having a problem with my wireless connection. It was working fine for about a month, when suddenly today my connection disconnected. I tried reconnecting to no avail. I kept trying and then this window began popping up when i tried to connect to my linksys: "Another profile is currently being processed. Please try again later." So i tried later... days later... still the same... anyone know what to do? I only have one profile in my setup, so there shouldnt be another profile its trying to connect to.... WHats going on? Anyone know how to fix this so i can get back to connecting to my normal linksys router ?

Thanks
 

A:Wireless Connection Problem: Another profile being processed

Intel PROSet/Wireless Another profile is being processed

I also receive the same error.

I have been given an Actiontec MI424WR wireless router by Verizon for FiOS. (I had FiOS at my old place with my own Linksys router and never had this problem)

I have tried everything from disabling/enabling radio to killing all processes other then the most critical and the error keeps popping up. Eventually, Intel PROSet appears to being a new search for networks, but the error comes back. Another laptop in my house does NOT get this error.

Since I am able to post this you can guess that I finally got it working, but what fixed it - I have no clue. Don't get happy for me yet, the error will come back as soon as I restart the computer - I'd bet the ranch on that!

Yes you are right. "'Deleting files from the WinSxS folder or deleting the entire WinSxS folder may severely damage your system so that your PC might not boot and make it impossible to update."

The files are generated by the SFC, SFC command would log its action into CBS.log, we could take a look at the CBS.log for what the SFC did. Reference:
How to analyze the log file entries that the Microsoft Windows Resource Checker (SFC.exe) program generates in Windows Vista

For the files created in the mentioned folder, which is generated by SFC command and SFC didn't do a good job to clean its job. These should be cleaned up by the TrustedInstaller scavenge process, however in CBS.log we will find:  Store coherency cookie
matches last scavenge cookie, skipping scavenge. Which means SFC won't clean up for what it did.
To remove those files, we need to start the TrustedInstaller by enabling something small, that isn't installed by default (like telnet):
dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:TelnetClient
After the installation, TrustedInstaller will continue running waiting for 5-10 minutes to pass and for the machine to be "idle" and then start the scavenge routine. If "TrustedInstaller.exe"
isn't running, it can be started with:    
net start TrustedInstaller.
After scavenge, the entries under PendingRenames and PendingDeletes should be cleared.
Another thing is the PendingRenames folder is also be used by W... Read more

When the P50 is docked with the lid closed, my two Dell 23" monitors (P2317H) connected via  2 Display Ports both recieve a signal from the dock. When the lid is opened, one monitor will lose signal. I have updated the Nvidia driver on the P50, as well as the firmware on the dock, which did not resolve the issue.  I have also tested this with a differnt P50, dock, monitors, and cables with the same result. OS: Windows 10 64-bitHardware: Lenovo ThinkPad P50, Lenovo ThinkPad Ultra Dock 40A2, Dell 23" Monitors P2317H

My company has issue me a Lenovo T470s and an Ultra Dock to replace my existing equipment. I have two external monitors connected to the docking station with display port cables. The problem that I am experiencing is that if the laptop is docked and the cover is open, I get video on the laptop display and one external monitor. The other external monitor gets no signal and goes to sleep. If I close the laptop cover, I get video on both external monitors. A co-worker told me that this was working as designed and that the solution for getting video on all three monitors was to connect one external monitor to one of the display ports and the other to the DVI port. (He hadn't tested this configuration and is using two display ports with the laptop cover closed.) I tried my coworker's suggestion and got the same result but prior to switching to DVI, I downloaded and installed the latest(?) driver for the HD Graphics 620 adapter from this website (lenovo.com) and that seemed to solve the problem (when using two display ports) but after shutting the laptop down, I had the same issue the next day. What I want, is to have the laptop cover open and still be able to use two external monitors and get optimal resolution on all three monitors. What's the best configuration for achieving this? (Don't guess, like my co-worker. Give me something you've tested and that you can confirm that it works.)

Hi guys. I've been looking at 2 laptops, they are basically identical but one has an Intel Core i3-4005U mobile processor and 4GB of RAM, and the other one has an AMD A4-5000 mobile processor and 6GB RAM. The guy at the store and a couple other people I know told me that the Core i3 is better than the A4 as the AMD "Quad Core" processors aren't very good, so even though the Intel i3 is only dual core it will be better than the quad core AMD. The other question is the RAM. Is 6GB that much better than 4GB or will 4GB be fine for basic use. (That's all this laptop is for. Basic use and touch apps since it will be touchscreen)

The AMD laptop is this one: Buy the HP Pavilion Notebook - AMD A4, 6GB, 15.6 at TigerDirect.ca
And the Intel here: Buy the HP TouchSmart 15.6 Notebook PC - F5W37UA#ABL at TigerDirect.ca

Last question, what the hell is DDR3L? All the new laptops have it nowadays... Is it backward compatible with normal DDR3 laptop RAM? Meaning can I take a normal laptop DDR3 4GB stick out of my dads laptop and put it into the 4GB (i3) laptop if thats the one i'm gonna get? Or does the DDR3 "L" part cause issues?
Thanks

Edit: Sorry i'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread. If it isn't mods could you please move it? Thanks

A:AMD A4-5000 "Quad Core" vs Intel Core i3-4005U Dual Core

Hmm, I guess you should read some reviews. But just from the specs the AMD has 6 GB ram instead of 4. Has a DVD burner where the Intel shows no optical drive. It only has W8 8.0 where the Intel has 8.1. But some people may prefer 8.0.

Read reviews. See how each performs. If you don't wish to use it to burn DVD then the optical drive, or lack thereof may not matter to you.

Edit: Oh, and the AMD is about $80 cheaper.

I see they have the new core i7 series for laptops?

1. How many cores to they have?

2. Why are all the processors capped @ 1.6ghz?

A:Core i7 For Laptop?

They have "8" cores Though it's really 4 x 2 (Hyperthreading)

If they are really capped then it's probably so that they don't burn the battery down in 15 minutes or melt-down from excessive heat inside.

It is funny how there are tons and tons of i3 laptops and several i7 but i5's are somewhat scarce. i3 is the chip that is supposed to be used for things like laptopps but then there are people that want the best of the best and have to have an i7 (not realizing that it might as well not even have a battery if it was running at 3Ghz)

I have no statistics for your particular configuration. But in general, temps up to 70C are tolerable. If they are higher, I recommend a coolpad with which you can drop it by 5 to 10 degrees. Example: Targus - 4-Port USB 2.0 Notebook ChillHub - AWE01US

I am going to exchange my old laptop with a new one.

My usage is for programming and Photoshop/Illustrator work.

I found that i5 processor fits my needs the best. But there seem to be some issues.

All the laptops that I checked with i5 were dual core and not quad core. Now even i3 provides dual core, so what benefit is i5 dual core providing me over i3 dual core.

On the intel website I checked that for laptops mostly i5 dual core processor is present.

The price difference between them is huge. Although I would like my machine to perform without lags, but I want to be sure that the processor is good enough for that and that I not just buying into the hype around the numbers.

Here are four models I narrowed down to:

Intel Core i5 4210U (Dell Vostro 14 V3446 Notebook)
Intel Core i5 3230M (Lenovo Essential G400s)
Intel Core i5 3337U (Asus F550CC-CJ671H Notebook)
Intel Core i3 4005U (Dell Inspiron 3542 Notebook)
Intel Core i3 4010U (Asus X Notebook)

Can anyone guide me here? Which processor or model is the best to have for my use?

Also any other models of processor that I should be looking into?

I am trying to choose between different Dell Latitude D420/D430 laptops. They come from a very good company who get stacks of laptops from Dell and sell them as refurbished (as good as new) at good prices (http://ndc.co.uk/browse_sub-Latitude_D420_D430-37.html). I will use it for MS Office, Outlook, internet, and nothing much else.

The choice is between Core Solo 1.06GHz or 1.2GHz; Core Duo 1.2GHz; or Core 2 Duo 1.2GHz or 1.33GHz. (The D430 has a brighter screen and allows Core 2 Duo - apart from that (I think...) D420 and D430 are identical.)

I'm hesitant about going for the cheapest, but from what I can tell Core Solo will handle all these functions well. I have seen that Core 2 Duo can be 30% faster than Core Duo, but I wonder if I will notice it on what I run.

At the moment I have a Core Duo 1.2GHz/D420 which runs fine, except for some freezing sometimes when I open Outlook (it resolves after 10-20 seconds).

Hi all

I am a first timer here. I have a problem getting my Fedora core 5 to boot on my SONY VAIO FE28 laptop. It installs all the way without any problems and then when I reboot it shows the following messages before freezing and turning my screen red or green:

PCI : Failed to allocate mem resource #6: [email protected] 0000

Set time: ----OK
Starting Udev: _ (this is where it freezes, and the screen background turns red or green).

I noticed that it identifies my laptop screen as "Unknown" when starting the initial DVD boot.

Can anyone help.

What do you think? Too early to jump, maybe wait awhile for more i5's to come down for more choices? Or since he's ready to buy should he pick one up now?

I had an old asus laptop that was an i3 laptop that lagged quite a bit when i played online poker. I play 20 a lot of tables and use some programs for it that does take memory. I was told my laptop is not fast enough because it was an i3-370m processor. I upgraded it from 4gb to 8gb but it didn't do that much. Still lagged once i hit close to 20 tables. I also had an ssd as well.


I was suggested to get a quad core laptop so i won't have any issues. I bought the sager NP2740 few months ago. When i first got it, it was very fast but i didn't play any online poker with it. I just used it for web browsing and sites etc. I then downloaded programs to play. I still have a lag when i play around that much tables. Also... my laptop lags quite a bit when i have a lot of chrome windows open. I probabably have 6 windows open but each window i have at last 8 tabs on each.


Anyways when i upload files through adrive while web browsing, i have a horrible lag. Also when i type like right now, if im uploading something or downloading stuff whether on adrive or photobucket... my typing lags a lot letter by letter. First off is this normal or not?


The other thing is my laptop is an i7-4770HQ with 8gb of ram. It has the Intel? Iris? Pro Graphics 5200 which i was told is one of the best even though all i do is play poker online. I of course have an SSD for this as well its samsung 250gb ssd.
