Q: Solved: Ram? Triple Compatibility?

Ok first and foremost my ram configuration is quite odd already.
I have
2x
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104200
1x
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104261
on a
ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 ATX Motherboard.
And they work well together and despite what Newegg says they are the same voltage and same speed.
I am however planning on adding another ram stick but the website I buy from does not have either of these in stock anymore.
So I was planning on going with this one:

I need to know specifically what docking stations will work with a 3 monitor setup with a T580. I have a Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 Gen 2 dock (40AN0135US) but it doesn't quite cut it. I have two monitors in HDMI with the third in the correct DP port and the third display always shows at a smaller resolution. Attempts to update the firmware always fail.

Let me start with what I have.

As you can see under the "Graphics" section I already have two monitors hooked up. "Syncmaster" is my main monitor. "SAMSUNG" is actually my television. I have the syncmaster hooked to my PC with a standard DVI cable in the first port of my card and the SAMSUNG is hooked with a DVI-HDMI. With the HDMI being in my TV and the DVI being in my second port on my card.

So, my question is, if I were to purchase this, would I be able to plug that into my second DVI port on my card. Then take the DVI-HDMI and plug it into the DVI port on the splitter then take a standard VGA cable for the third monitor I want and plug that into the splitter. Would my PC recognize all of the monitors? Are the specifications of my PC able to support that? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.(I also have a HDMI and a DisplayPort on my card. Is there a such thing as a DP-VGA?)

Hey..

I need some help with my installation...

I already have XP Pro installed.....I want to add Win 98 and Redhat 7.3..

I already know how to dual boot Redhat and XP Pro pretty well...but I am not sure about how to add in Win 98 as the third OS...

This is my plan:

create a partition right after my XP partition (XP is C
install 98 to that partition.

so now my comp will boot into 98 while I still have XP on the C: drive..it'll be dormant cuz it is not in the MBR...

THEN...

I will install RedHat and use GRUB to put all the OSs into its menu.....cuz i know GRUB can see all OS installations quite easily, and its boot loader is rock solid

is that sound??? i think it might work..bu I need someone to tell me i'm not gonna screw something up...

Dear Tech support forum members,

I am hoping you can help me in the mess I have been getting myself into...

In my enthusiasm to look into the new windows 7 ultimate 64-bit version I have recently installed it on my HDD (running in RAID 5) that already had windows XP professional and vista ultimate (both 64-bit) installed. After installing win7, it converted my bootmenu perfectly into a triple boot system. So far so good.

Because the 64-bit OS's seemed to cause a driver issue for one of my favourite applications I decided to remove the vista installation and replace it with a XP professional 32-bit version. After installation a completely new bootmenu appeared and windows 7 was no longer available. With easyBCD 1.7.2 I was able to restore the VISTA bootloader that returned my win7 entry.

However, the bootmenu is only working for win7 this time directly and looks as follows:
Win7
XP pro 64
XP pro 32

Windows 7 indeed starts win7, XP 32 causes a reboot and XP pro 64 gives me a second boot menu. This second menu is identical to the original bootmenu I had before I used easyBCD to restore the vista bootloader:
XP pro 32
XP pro 64
win7

The first two entries start the respective OS's and win7 in this menu causes a reboot.

Does anybody have any idea what to do to remove the additional second bootmenu and to get the entries activated in the first menu?

I have included the easyBCD settings below.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers,

Peter

I'm having a little problem with the setup of my video card. According to ASUS, the EAH5450 will support and run 3 monitors at the same time. However, I can only get it to work with 2. The card has 3 outputs, 1 VGA, 1 DVI and 1 HDMI. Is it possible to actually make all 3 ports work at the same time? I have an LG 1752TX on analog, an LG 1952TX on the DVI and an RCA 32" LED TV on the HDMI. Right now, the only way I can get the HDMI to work is to disconnect the VGA cable from either the video card or the monitor.

I know that the 3 monitors is a bit extreme. Due to health problems, I can't sit in a chair with my feet on the floor for very long. I have to have my feet elevated. I watch all my TV online. I can't see the monitors from either the couch or the recliner so I bought a 32" TV so I can recline and keep my feet up. Any time I want to watch the TV, I have to shut down my system, disconnect the VGA and reboot. This is a real pain. Does anyone know ... Read more

G'day,

My g/f's computer is running XP and recently its commitment charge is currently triple what you would think is normal (700mb instead of 200mb) from what i can ascertain there are no extra processes running and cpu operation is running around 50% +40% -10%. The odd thing is, the computer has 512mb of ram but even when its sitting on 700mb its slow but not standstill slow.

I have rebooted into safe mode and attempted using zone alarm suite, and webroot spysweeper; but both came up with errors requiring restart.

I used the trendmicro housecall online scan in normal operation which did not find anything.

I will post a hijack this log and give pc specs when i'm over there next.

Is it possible that there is a stupid bug that fools task manager into false data considering the pc still works at 800mb charge??

All confusedly,

OK, so here's the story. I have dual-monitors working for about 9 months and decide to make the jump to a triple-screen setup. I have a motherboard with an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 (with 256Mb of shared system memory), plus an ATI Radeon X1600 Pro 512Mb PCI-Express graphics card.

I plug my third monitor into my motherboard and finally get three monitors working. But no Aero . The setup is this:

Left: 15" TFT @ 1024x768 (running from X200)
Centre: 17" TFT @ 1280x1024 (running from X1600 Primary)
Right: 17" TFT @ 1280x1024 (running from X1600 Secondary)

If I disable my right monitor (so my left and cenre are still running) I can get aero. As soon as I enable the monitor again, it disappears. It seems as soon as I decrease the number of monitors to two (regardless of the monitors I choose), Aero works.

Because of this, I know that the X200 will support Aero, so that's out of the question. The result is the same whether I use ATI's Catalyst Conrol Center or the Vista display manager.

Any ideas?? It's highly annoying to be so close to a fully working triple-screen setup.

Cheers,
MaidenFan

After the second time it comes up and says:

Then it does the mem check a third time and boots up to WinXP Pro

Hello,

I recently had issues with my PSU and rather than play guesswork on whether its still functional, I rather just replace it.

My motherboard is a m3n78-pro. Its a bit dated but I'd like for this pc to last another 6 months before I build an entirely new rig. If I read the manual correctly, it requires ATX 12V V2.0.

The PSU I'd like to change to (since it just has to last another 6 months) this 900 w PSU. Would the m3n78-pro be compatible with this PSU? One concern I had was that the m3n78-pro requires a 4 pin ATX +12v connector. If I read the PSU's specifications correctly it has one 12V 8-pin (4 + 4) CPU power connector. Is that 8-pin two separate power connector, ie do I just use 1 of the connectors to fit into the 4 pin ATX +12v connector?

Please excuse my noobishness but what exactly does the v2.92 Motherboard specification entail? I tried to google it, but got less useful information and product results from newegg.

Also I read the wiki on the ATX 12V V2.X standard, but it didn't answer my question - is ATX12V v2.3 backwards compatible with the ATX12V v2.0 standard?
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

How do I know if a part of is compatible with another part or not?
 

A:Solved: Compatibility

Too vague of a question for the most part, but as a generalization you would research them.

If you are referring to a processor then you would go to the motherboard manufacturer's website and check the supported CPU list.

For a video card you would need to check that the motherboard and video card has the same type of slot/interface. Although all modern cards use PCI-Express and so do all modern motherboards and PCI-Express is backward and forward compatible between different versions to a point.

For a power supply you'd make sure you have all the connectors you need and that the wattage is sufficient for what will be in the computer, mainly the video card as it's the most power hungry.

A few months ago I scrapped my old Dell dimension 4700 after having a number of problems with it.

Recently, I have been thinking that since I am no longer using it, maybe I could salvage the ram sticks from it and use them to upgrade the ram of my mother's computer, but I'm not sure about compatibility.

My old dell 4700 had two, 512MB 1RX8 PC2-3200U-333-11-A0, 512MB DDR2, 400, CL3 ram sticks. (according to the stickers on them)

My mother's computer is a dell dimension 3000, and it has two, 256MB DDR-400MHZ-CL3, PC3200-3033-0-A0 ram sticks. Additionally, her computer only has two ram slots (compared with the six my old computer had), though I don't know if that's relevant information.

I was hoping I would be able to take out the two sticks from my mother's computer, and replace them with the two sticks from my old computer, essentially doubling her ram. But I'm not sure if they're compatible, and I don't want to risk damaging her computer, since it's the only one she has right now.

So my question is, would it be safe to replace my mother's current ram sticks with the ones from my old computer? Are they compatible? If you need any further information let me know what it is and how I can find it.
 

A:Solved: RAM compatibility

Nope, can't do. Your computer uses DDR2 and hers uses DDR - they are not interchangeable. But your definitely on track with wanting to upgrade her memory; 256MB is very low for a Windows XP PC these days.

DDR isn't terribly expensive, check out www.crucial.com or another manufacturer's site and they usually have a configuration utility that will tell you want memory they have that is compatible with her computer.

Hi, I've just bought a new graphics card, it's a second hand radeon HD 4870x2 fitted with an Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme 4870x2 cooler. It has two 6 pin connectors.

my second problem is i had trouble with my pc regognizing the size of the 10gb (it was 8 instead) one but i found out it was because i have an old motherboard (i'm not sure what type it is either) so i downloaded from seagate a program to fix that...but now only dos recognises it as a 10.2 gb but windows still falls short only recognizing 9.5gb...

When I was in high school I took a couple computer science courses using Visual Basic. We were given what we needed on a CD that we got to keep. Visual Basic 6.0 I think. Anyway my brother is now taking the same course next year and wanted to play around on VB. We now have a new computer with vista on it and when I try and install the contents of the CD it gives me an error saying something about it not being compatible with vista.

What I'm wondering is if I install it anyway can it screw up the computer? It may not work but it only says one of the components on the CD doesn't work and I may not even use that part..

Also, is there anywhere to download it for free of the web? If so I may just do that.

Thanks

I feel dumb even asking this since I should know. Im building a system and havent been able to get it to boot. Fujitsu-siemens mobo D1675, elixir Ram-512mb,XFX GeForce vid card-256mb. The processor I bought is a P4 2.8Ghz Prescott,after hours of troubleshooting I finally looked up processor compatibility on their site,and that model isnt listed. Northwood is what they recommend. The ram I have isnt listed either although they say other brands could work,but the listed brands have been extensively tested. Would the difference in processor models matter that much? So as to not boot up? Ive tried all the normal troubleshooting tips,removed the mobo,checked the ram, unplugged all drives,all plugs etc. etc.

Hi all,
I just installed IE8, and without knowing much what I was doing, I opened a website, and clicked the compatibility view. But I don't really want that view on that particular website, so I tried to take it back, but couldn't. I saw in the MS notes to turn it off, delete the browsing history. After doing that, I opened the same website again, but I didn't see the compatibility icon, which makes me think it is still on. Prior to and after deleting the history, I opened a second website (totally different than the first), and I saw the icon. Also prior to and after deleting, TSG does not have the compatibility icon. No websites are currently showing up in the compatibility view list, but still, I have to wonder (especially on the first website) whether it really is off, because I know longer get the option to turn it on. Does anyone know how to tell for real?
Thanks, Jason

okay, finally getting around to playing with 2k7 standard. Install fine, everything hunky dory, set to save as .doc or .xls as opposed to .docx or .xlsx, so it will be readable in office 2k3.

Come to find out, on a pc with multiple users, that neesd to be done on EVERY profile; does anyone know of a fix for this (saving as .doc as opposed to .docx)? We need to have it done globally, so that whomever logs into the pc doesn't have to go change the way office 2k7 saves things.

Granted, the vast majority of our users are single user pc's, so that's not a big deal, but the test version of this has 20 profiles on it easy, and I don't feel like trotting upstairs everytime someone logs in to play with office 2k7.

Any ideas?

tia,

Until recently, I've been using Microsoft Word 2007, but recently I've had to switch back to using an earlier version of Word. I believe it's Microsoft Works 8. Now, I'm unable to open any of the files that I created while using Microsoft Word 2007 because the file type they use is .docx. Is there a way to either convert the files or make .docx compatible with Microsoft Works 8?

Also, I'm not sure if this is relevant, but if it helps, my operating system is Windows Vista.

My son has a Logiitech Orbit AF camera.

It requires a Pentuim 4 (or compatible) processor, 2.4 GHz recommended.

His new Toshiba notebook has a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core processor (TK-53) Processor speed is 1.70GHz.

My question is--will the camera work with his new computer?

I'm not too familiar with the different number systems used by AMD & Intel.

Thanks for your advice,

Tom

Hello all,

I'm wanting to upgrade my PC main board & am unsure of what would be compatible with my memory type I have. The memory is [4gb 2rx4 pc2-5300f-555-11-e1 DDR2] and purchased this a while back for when I am ready for said upgrade.

As I am ready now, I do not know if I should go down the AMD or Intel route as I'm unable to find any resource / info relating to my above mentioned memory type.

I am wondering if any of you have experience of the above memory type going into a particular main board and would like to thank you in advance for any help that you can give.

Best Regards,
Braz

I have a mother board (ms-7058) and am curious to find out what processors are compatible as well as video cards, I know its old I just want to explore options before buying all new components.
 

A:Solved: compatibility issues

A search on the MSI website brings up these two motherboards: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=ms-7058

If you are unsure which of those two you have, open up the side of the case and in most cases the advertising model number, 915P Combo or 915G Combo, will be marked on the board.

But CPU support is limited to Pentium 4's and Celeron D's - both considered obsolete.

The board does support PCI-Express video cards but where you will be limited is by your power supply and the processor you have - any modern mid to high end card will be performance limited by a Pentium 4 processor.

You're best bet may be to consider a new system and sell this one.

I don't know if this is the right forum for this but anyway....I'm trying to do a slide show from my laptop on a 10yr old TV with no VGA input. it's got S-Video and the yellow RCA video input on the front panel and the yellow jack does work with my camera. I bought a VGA to RCA dongle but get no signal or maybe VGA is not what the front panel inputs expect ??? I connected my laptop to a neighbor's new LCD TV with his VGA to VGA cable and it works great. Ideas?

thanks in advance...

Hey, I'm new here and was hoping somebody can help me out. I am building a new gaming computer myself (my first time) and wanted to be sure I am buying compatible parts before I purchase them. I am purchasing all my parts from Newegg, here are links to the parts I am buying:
Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115036
MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813188026
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220315
Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005
Graphic Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150329
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136098
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146047
Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151173
Heatsink: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200026
SATA Cable: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812816030
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit.

My main concerns are:
Is the power supply big enough at 650W?
Do I have all the cables for the OEM hard drive and OEM disk drive? (I read that when you buy a motherboard that comes with cables).
And lastly will it all work together.

My budget was for under $1k and went over by $68. But willing to pay it out for this baby.
