Anyone know what kind of HD ibuypower.com uses?

Q: Anyone know what kind of HD ibuypower.com uses?

I'm in the process of configuring a new system on IBuyPower and unfortunately they don't tell you which brand HD they use on the customization page. does anyone have any experience with them? I'm hoping it's WD just cos I seem to have the best luck with them. Size capacity I chose was 500GB.

Any input would be much appreciated !

Preferred Solution: Anyone know what kind of HD ibuypower.com uses?

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 have never heard of an Ibuypower, but I do have an Emachine. I am still using an Emachine 333id model. I would say an Emachine. Go with what I know LOL.

I am on my 3rd machine (4th if you want to be technical). Built the third time. Build the machine if you can afford it. If you check my past post you can see just how fustrating it can be, but normally not that hard.

thank you. I've never used a forum before, and have no idea what else to do in my position. I uploaded the files that you will need to solve this if you can, thanks again. Also my temps read around 40-60 because i play mmos, and my rear fan runs hard core alot even with case open, and idk if its just the fact that its a gaming pc or if it is telling me of a soon to come heat problem.

Uninstall Avast then use the removal tool. Set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender to Automatic and start them too, using services.msc.

Update Realtek HD Audio codec driver from their website:

RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Fri Mar 29 09:40:06 2013 (515599B6)

Update motherboard bios to newest version.

Likely that the memory is not configured well, mismatched, or defective.

Please attach a screenshot of CPU-Z first tab, one of memory tab and one each for each stick of RAM of SPD tab - along with newest crash dumps - if necessary after completing the above. (Or perhaps Avast removal is the trick instead.)

Hey all, new to the forums and in pretty serious need of some help. I bought an IBUYPOWER prebuilt gaming rig last... April I think, and its been working great for me. Recently however ( the last month or so), the sound keeps going out. It went out for about a week before randomly coming back (nothing I did), and now its been gone for about 2-3 weeks. The sound icon down by the clock shows a red x and says that no speakers are plugged in. I've tried a bunch of things to try and get my audio back on, but no luck. I'm not sure what I would need to provide here for anybody to help me, or what I SHOULDNT post for security reasons, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Some important notes
*I have Windows 7
*I have two jacks for my speakers, one in the back where you would typically expect to find one, but also an additional one in the front panel. Neither one apparently works, leading me to believe its a driver issue.
*Gosh idk what else to put down! any help would be greatly appreciated, I used to think I was capable with computers but this seems to be beyond me

Hi everyone...I'm in the process of getting a new computer and I'm currently looking at this online place called www.ibuypower.com ... basically that site lets you choose the components and they'll put it together for you. I searched the parts on NewEgg and the price actually came out higher hahah

Anyway, what's troubling me is that a look at their ratings at ResellerRatings.com is "great" http://www.resellerratings.com/seller2001-p3-s1-d1.html

So my question is has anyone here had experiences with that company along with suggestions, etc. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone out there know if the iBuypower computers or other computer out there on like Tigerdirect or the ZT brands from Costo are any good? I've never heard of them but keep seeing them popping up everywhere....

I've only ever had a Dell, HP or Gateway machine.

A:iBuypower and other non-namebrand computers

They're most often made from quite much better quality parts than Dell, etc as they don't get exclusively extra cheap motherboards and other parts like the big brand companies. They do sometimes use lower quality power supplies though, quite a feat considering what the factory built boxes have. I wouldn't recommend getting any of them without modifying it yourself and selecting a quality power supply for it, or replacing it yourself to save a few dozen dollars, as well as getting a longer warranty for the PSU.

Back in December 2009 I bought a computer from iBuypower. I have just recently noticed how slow the install is because I got a new copy of Windows 7 for my 13inch MacBook Pro(2.66 Core2, 4GB RAM) and it seems to run games faster and be more stable. Could it just be a early version of 7 that is causing the problem? or is it hardware?

iBuyPower Specs:
Core i7 OCed 3.2GHz
12GB RAM at 1600Mhz
ATI 5850 1GB

A:Slow Windows 7(iBuypower Disc)

Your over clock maybe causing it to slow down.

Heat can cause issues with Hardware, and can you post pictures of the insides of your case.

What seems to be wrong us that the UEFI can't seem to detect the harddrives when determining boot order? That's my best guess. I really have no idea. If I load Bootable media, such as my installation drive, it detects it just fine and all my components are fine and I'm able to format and install as I please.
However, I'm unable to access the UEFI configuration, as the pc just stops.
Twice in the past few days it's been able to work itself out and boot as normal, so I know it's not a harddrive issue, but it's extremely rare.
I formatted and installed a fresh windows on a secondary drive to see if that would help to both avail.

I'm just going to make a long story short and say this: I bought an ibuypower laptop (Battalion HEL80) a while back and I had to format. Unfortunately I don't have the driver disk for my network card (wired and wireless) and I don't know what the exact model or who the manufacturer is. Does anyone know what kind of card this laptop would have or know of some way I could get the model number?

A:Can't find network drivers for ibuypower laptop

I believe it uses an Intel 945PM chipset.

If so it probably uses an Intel NIC. You can download the chipset drivers from here: http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scripts-df-external/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&ProductID=816&DwnldID=12150&strOSs=45&OSFullName=Windows*%20XP%20Home%20Edition&lang=eng

Hi to all and here's hoping you can help me: since yesterday my pc has been playing up but it's just the boot up which is VERY slow taking 20-30 mins to complete. I have no lack of speed with anything else like online or just working offline. I've scanned with Antivirus,Spybot, Adaware all in Safe Mode and defragged plus cleaning out all the temp files and cookies..but it's still really slow. Nothing seems to be using up loads of CPU so i can't figure it out. I've even cut down my start up functions to the bare minimum. I have'nt had WinXP pro on for long and it's been a pain in the neck since i installed it. My system ram is 320mb and i have an INTEL PENTIUM II processor 331MHZ. If i need more RAM to run XP efficiently wot type of RAM do i buy for this old pc??Any help would be great as i've run out of ideas now and really need the input............thanks ROZ

A:Do I Need More Ram And If So What Kind?

You should have enough RAM to run XP. 512 would be the least amount of RAM I'd prefer to work with on a modern system, but with one that old you may not be able to install that much. The bare minimum processor recommended to run XP is 300MHz, 400MHz recommended, so it'll run relatively slowly overall.

A half hour boot is pretty excessive for a boot up time, though. What programs are installed, other than standard Windows?

Hi everyone,

I am a newbie here, so I apologize if this post isn't perfect. But don't worry, I haven't posted any logs yet.

I am running Windows XP

I have had a weird problem for a long time (maybe 6 months). Everytime I open a program, I get a pop up saying

"C:\Windows\system32\skqncbib.dll" is not a valid image and I need to check my installation disk.

I just ignored it for a long time. I also had the problem that when I started up my comp. I had to run explorer.exe from the task manager. It wouldn't load on its own.

So yesterday I decided to try and "fix" the problem...

I saw a bunch of stuff on combofix. So I tried it and ignored the disclaimers. (I know... I know...)

Well, it quarantined my explorer.exe file (turned it into explorer.exe.vir)

How do I get this back and how do I fix those pesky pop-ups and the underlying problem?

... and no... I don't have my installation disk.

Thx in advance

A:What kind of RAM do I buy?

You need to look at your system board. Edo is a type of Simm ram. That ram will look like a mini board long and skinny with chips solderd onto it. Dimm is quite a bit longer and will be stick out. I will investigate for you but you should be able to tell the difference.

When Windows 7 is released, what kind of computers do you think will be available? I mean, touch is a huge part of it, so there would be little point in having 7 on a PC with no touch capabilities. I'm thinking that most PCs will be like the current HP touchsmart, everything built in, but do you think there would be normal tower PCs, and have stand-a-lone monitors, with a touch screen (how would it connect? A normal screen connection + USB? Or maybe by then HDMI>DVI).

I'm just curious as to what we'll be buying with 7 pre-installed or ready.

A:What Kind of PCs?

absolutely - touch is a new technology that not a lot of folks are going to make a lot of use of - however, big bulky boxes like the one I am currently on (and the one I am currently planning to upgrade in about 6 months - yes, already!) will still be around.

Not everyone is going to like touch, and I don't foresee it becoming a *major* player in the PC market until you get a hybrid of touch *and* voice controlled - then you'll really have a spiffy PC.

Of course, by then, we'll also be able to control them directly by neural caps monitoring out brainwaves too

You can go to the link below and download and install Aida32. It will tell you about all the hardware software etc... on your PC. Download it and save it to desktop or wherever you choose. Install it and click on it and it will generate a comprehensive report of everything on your puter.


BTW this is a direct download link.

My daughter brought her computer because it quit connecting to the internet and printing. I ran Mbam and Supraantispyware and found 14 trojans, and 497 spyware threats. I've cleaned everything off and she was getting Hard drive failure warnings, but the warning wanted you to click and buy their program to fix it, so I'm not sure the HD is really dying or not. I uninstalled all her toolbars, (she had about 6) and got rid of "weatherbug" etc... I copied all her pictures and data to an external hard drive.

The Hard drive she has is 160 GB (off system properties but no clue what brand. CPU is a 167 Gigahertz AMD Sempron 2400+; Memory is 496 MB Ram (according to Bellarc Slot A0 has 512 mb and Slot A1 is empty. Her motherbaord is KM266A-8235 Bus Clock 166 megahertz.

I see on Newegg I can get a 500 GB Seagate Bare drive for $49.00 but I don't know if SATA or 2.0 or 3.0, 7200 rpm etc.. is compatible.

How can I get her more Ram. Can I buy one stick of 512 for the other slot? Will it read 1 gig of Ram?

She's getting married in 3 months so with all the expenses, I'm trying to give her a system that will work (even if slow). She's running Win XP Home Edition.

Thanks for your help

A:What kind of Ram and HD do I need

First Thing - About the program that says your HDD is dying is most likely a scam similiar to another scam that changes your desktop background to something that says your computer is infected with Adware and that you have to buy product to fix it, when there is nothing wrong at all. It actually changes the desktop background and makes it impossible to change back until you remove it with a fix created by some people online. What is the name of the HDD program that says your HD is dying. Or google the program online and type in scam with it and see if there are any links on other forums talking about it and how to fix it.

A great program to see about these problems is called HijackThis!. http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/

There are several free programs online that are by far better than anything you pay for, examples are ccleaner, defraggler, some free virus software like avast and avg. If you don't mind paying an extra 10 to 20 dollars a year there is a program called spy sweeper that works well when I used it but I have not used it in several years. Most of the time the renewal will be cheaper or have a deal of some sort with it. Googling about the top best free computer programs would not hurt, or top 10 list. Most top 10 list are fine, done by other users. But if they are sponsored by a magazine or something they may slightly biased, but that does not mean they don't work. A poor example would be PC Magazine sponsoring MagicJack. The truth is MagicJack doe... Read more

Many thanks to Geekgirl. I scanned with RAV, Spybot, Adaware SE and HJT.

Adaware found Coulomb Dialer. Do ALL dialers reek havoc on your phone bills? Or is it only for people who use dial-up connection?

Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron 3650 Desktop. I bought some Dell RAM on eBay and have a problem installing it. After inserting the RAM and plugging in everything, I turn on the PC. The power button that is usually white flashes orange and it doesn't start up. Nothing on the screens. So, did I buy the right kind of RAM? Its 2x8GB 1600mhz PC3-12800 UDIMM 240 pin. The number matches the one on Dell's website for my Inspiron (SNP66GKYC/8G.) I can't attach pictures because the limit is 1000kB and mine are all 1.45M+. The only difference I see in the two types of RAM is the new says 2Rx8 and the old says 1Rx16. Is that my problem? Please reply. Thanks

Hi again,was wondering if there are any programs , for instance, i make a lot of text documents, and when you click properties and theres a summary( usually put text in summary). Is there any apps that let you see the summary of text files without having to click on properties, just move mouse point over files , so it will show it. But i want it to show extra things. Like those mp3 custom tags for mp3s. But for text files, anyone have any ideas.

All it shows it

date modified:

A:Anyone know of this kind of app

In Windows Explorer (eg:My Documents) If you go to View - Choose Details... you will see more display options.

Of course this will display the data for all the files at once.

I don't know if there is a prog like the one you want - bound to be though.

You can hold the Alt key down and double-click on a file to view Properties
