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.)

Hi fatwalletguy ,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

Ideally it would be best if we use the machine number to verify the details of the machine listed on the sticker or check it here . (just keep your serial number confidential).

Upgrade checker can help provide information for recommended upgrades but OEM system have its own whitelist as controlled by the BIOS. Therefore , it would always suggest to check it first with the manufacturer .

Update us soon as convenient.

Posted this to Reddit 4 days ago, but of course, no one responded. Anyway, here:

My brother's computer: Lenovo v570 laptop running Windows 7, 64-bit Intel Core i5 processor, 750 GB hard drive, 6 GBs of RAM, integrated graphics

I'm trying to help my brother fix his laptop, but it's nearly impossible. I'm fairly well-versed in this type of black magic, but this was so unyielding that I'm forced to post here.
"The other night I tried starting my laptop, and it asked me if I wanted to go into startup repair or boot normally, which I thought was strange, and I just chose to start normally, and it BSOD'd before the time the login screen would usually come up. I figured there might be a potential issues because I had postponed restarting my computer a couple of days after Windows updates were done. I usually keep my computer clean, protected by Kaspersky and Malwarebytes, etc. so I figured that the update would be the most likely culprit.
I tried to do a system repair off the recovery hard drive, and it didn't work. Then I tried launching into safemode, still BSOD'd; the "last known good configuration" wouldn't boot either. I tried multiple system restore points, and they gave various errors. None worked, however. Some said it couldn't read the memory at some sort of address, and others said something about setupapi.dll. It's sort of time consuming to get the exact error.

Hey there.I got a Lenovo laptop with the above mentioned processor.This processor supports VT-D according to Intel: http://ark.intel.com/products/71670/Intel-Core-i7-3632QM-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz-BGAI'm running a V-sphere lab on my laptop and I've got into a huge problem.My v-sphere says that my host doesnt have "Directed I/O (device passthrough)" enabled, which means VT-D is not enabled.My bios version is 1.21 (latest i guess). There is no such option in the bios to enable, which is frustrating because in other computers it is built in their bios. what are my options? how can i force my laptop to enable it? Thank you, best regards!

Dear All,I have new laptop (lenovo y5070 intel core i7-4710hq) with 8GB Ram, 4GB for each slot.I want to upgrade to 32GB, is it possible?and to upgrade, should I use 2 ram slot or one possible? 

A:lenovo y5070 intel core i7-4710HQ Ram Upgrade

The most ram you can use is 16gb 1600mhz. It's limited by the CPU, and also by the DIMM slots. Its impossible to find 32gb in 16x2 SODIMM. But 16gb (8x2) is plenty .P.S. Use 2 slots if possible, dual band is faster than single.

I'm planning on buying a Dell inspiron laptop. I am wondering what the difference is between Intel Core Solo and Intel Core Duo processors. Is it worth more money for the Duo when all I'll use the laptop for is Office applications and internet browsing?

A:difference is between Intel Core Solo and Intel Core Duo processors.

If you're using it mostly for applications and multitasking, then yes, the core duo would be a better choice. I would say shell out the extra money.

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?

Hi Guys,

I want to buy a new notebook. Fortunately I have decided that I will go for Dell and Studio 15. The notebook usage will be for business and I don't think I would used it much for gaming. I am looking for a notebook which gives good performance.

The following spects are confirmed :

-Windows 7 (64-bit)
- 500 GB HDD (7200 RPM)
- DVD RW, Bluetooth, Wifi etc... the usual stuff

- Either Intel Core i7-720QM or Intel Core i5-540M

What should I do ? The latter option (i5) saves me around Rs 8000/- ($160). Do you think its worth going for i7 or the i5 will be sufficient.

Though I may not be doing video editing etc but I will be doing development work (like using Visual Studio .NET).

The i5-540M is a new processor and I dunno the difference in power compared to the i7 counterpart. Will i5 be slightly slower or a lot.

Please advice me what to do ?

Thanks a lot,

I bought this laptop at a local department store here in Thailand (where I actually reside) almost 3 years ago.  Been fairly trouble free EXCEPT when I experienced a major power outage almost three weeks ago.  I cannot get it to boot in normal
mode for the life of me -- I AM IN SAFE MODE at the moment trying to get answers.  I went to a local computer repair center last night to see if they had a boot disc available but they did not.  I really need the data that's stored here, all the
documents, the pictures, music and videos, and other data.  So, actually two questions: 1.)  How do I get the laptop to boot in normal mode and 2.) how do I migrate files, folders, and other needed data to DVD+RDLs as a back up in case I do in
fact need to go out and spend to get a new laptop?   Your help is much appreciated !!!

Hi, I have purchased a brand new t480S a few weeks ago. During the installation first the touchscreen became unresponsive , after like 3-4 hours.  A few hours later the mouse cursor started to act really strange - it is going up or down on its own. Further it is accelerating, so even if you try to compensate with the mouse / trackpoint / touchpad you can do it for 1-2 secs, after it inevitably 'wins' and runs out from the screen. The problem occurs every time you use over cca 50% of the laptop's capacity, basically after it heats up. The laptop is unusable in its present form, after 8 hours of usage.. Before you ask, yes, I did send it to the 'support'.. The support.. Well, if I would tell you how and what they did I think I would be banned from these forums forever. Let's just say I have little hope that they will solve my issue I just hope that they will give back my laptop without further damages. (Last time I tried to get it back I was told that it is disassembled and waiting for some spare parts - yet they could not tell me which spare parts..) Anyone had any similar issues? Mouse cursor running wild when the computer heats up? Same time touchsreen dying? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks,Denes

Hey guys. I joined today because I'm deciding between two laptops and I thought I could use your help.

The laptop will be used for everyday use for the most part but I also play World of Warcraft. The game recommends at least 1g of RAM but most users suggest more. The Acer has more RAM but only a single processor. Any suggestions?

A:Toshiba Laptop with Intel Celeron or Acer with AMD Athlon Single-Core Processor?

both of those computers are pretty slow... and single core. the Toshiba is the better buy but the link is dead so you might be out of luck with that anyways. i don't play wow so i can't tell you what i would recommend for hardware. i will just go ahead and make the suggestion to buy something with a Core2Duo, 2GB RAM and a more high-end onboard video adapter for games. the more dedicated video power the better.

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?

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 have just about decided to go with the e6300 but want to make sure one last time it is the right way to go. These two CPU's are the same price. According to most people the e6300 left the 4200+ in the dust in all tests. I do however still like AMD... What do you guys think? The e6300 or the 4200+. Even though both are low core speeds (1.87 and 2.2ghz respectively) they still out perform a 3.6ghz pentium 4. Is this correct? I dont understand why a CPU with low core speed can outperform one with very high speed? I was always under the impression that core speed was the main determinant of "performance". If anyone could clear this up it would be hugely appreciated. Also, for the same money I can buy a Intel Pentium*D-940 CPU - 3.2 Ghz, 800 MHz FSB, 2 x 2MB L2 Cache, LGA775...

Which of these 3 is the best?

All help would be hugely appreciated.



A:Intel e6300 core 2 duo conroe VS AMD ATHLON 64 X2 4200+ AM2 D/CORE

Out of those 3, the E6300 is the best. Conroe's new architecture is so efficient, that easily outperforms Netburst based CPUs (P4, PD, Celeron D), and even manages to outperform AMD CPU's.

You can see by yourself HERE. All Conroe CPU's perform excellent. And you can overclock them very easily, and that way, your 1.8GHZ Conroe overclocked to 2000-2400 MHZ will completely trash the other CPU's.

I am looking to build my own PC as I can't afford 1,000+ to get someone to make one for me, I will be using it for gaming and communication and a little college work, I will probably be using Bullguard to protect it and OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office with a Win 7 64bit OS.

Bearing this in mind what would be the best Processor for the Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz Quad-Core (BX80637I53570K) Processor and what would be the maximum Memory and Storage I could attach to it? ( I preferably want 8GB of Memory and 1tb of storage ) but I can be flexible.

A:What would be the best motherboard for a Intel Core i5 3.4 GHz Quad-Core (BX80637I53570K) Processor?

The CPU you want is the i5 3570K. That runs on the socket LGA 1155. When you are on a budget, any mid range mobo will suit your needs. Use the savings from the mobo towards a better HDD or even an SSD. You will also need a GPU.

I would recommend the ASUS P8Z77-V LK motherboard. As for RAM, 8GB is enough. As for the HDD, 1TB is great. I recommend the WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD.

Make sure you can get in a GPU.

Intel Core i3-2330M + Intel HD Graphics 3000 = Black Screen

first of all, my words of deep and sincere appreciation and thanks for this website. I use it, though only sporadically, for many, many years and always got very professional and useful help here!

Today I am inquiring about a problem that seems to be quite common and wide-spread, based on my own Internet searches: the bad combination of the Intel Core i3-2330M processor and the Intel HD Graphics 3000. During normal operations, my system works with that. But when using render software (POV-Ray) or attempting to play games, then I am getting that famous Black Screen. The laptop still continues to work, but I cannot see anything anymore. Only a restart helps, unfortunately. My online search did not reveal any solution, and having downloaded the "Intel Driver Update Utility", nothing new can be downloaded it seems.

I am speaking out here today about my problem with the hope, that someone here know a functioning solution. I need my system in order to create renders, that is my work. I just recently upgraded my system with that better processor, and it kills me now.

The response of the system (no-boot with the Xeon CPU aboard) is your answer:  NO.  This system won't take that CPU.
Since the system won't boot with the Xeon CPU aboard, it matters not which OS you plan to run.

After the components are switched out I want to verify, my approach of Win 7 Pro installation will work and if not, would someone please correct me and give me advice as to the proper approach? What my idea was after everything is hooked up and ready to install OS, I would turn on enter bios set to boot from cd, and set to AHCI since I'll be reusing my Samsung 840 120GB SSD and leave the rest of the bios set to default at that time. I'll have my Logitech model 520 wireless keyboard with the model 310 wireless mouse which came together. Does this approach seem like it should work especially the wireless keyboard/mouse? I could sure use some corrections for the proper way of installing the OS if not, it would sure be appreciated Thanks!

I have this: ARK | Intel? Celeron? Processor 440 (512K Cache, 2.00 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

I want to replace it with this: ARK | Intel? Core
I've tried simply physically replacing one with the other, but as you may guess, it's not that simple. What do I need to do? I'm on a budget of zero.

Could I get by with installation instructions, and perhaps directions towards drivers? I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

A:Replace Intel Celeron 440 @ 2.0 GHz With Intel Core 2 Quad @ 3.0 GHz

I would suggest checking if your motherboard can support a more modern CPU. The Core 2 Quad is from 2008. You can probably get an i3 for close to the same price if your motherboard supports it.

OK, some more information:

The current installation on the Lenovo T400 (Intel 330 SSD ACHI) was done using the "double install" method using Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack Upgrade. It appears the current installation would allow me to use the Sysprep method (I didn't receive an error message when running sysprep.exe), but my concern is that when I boot up the Intel 330 SSD in my new Intel NUC, the validation won't work because the Family Pack uses an Upgrade key. The key has only been used once, so I still have 2 remaining activations, but I'm not sure if that has any relevance to the situation.

Any other recommendations? I am considering manually uninstalling the drivers, doing the swap, and hoping for the best, due to the fact that the current installation sees itself as a clean install, not an upgrade.

A:Move Intel SSD from T400 (Core 2 Duo) to Intel NUC (Broadwell i3)?

How do you know that activation won't work? Did you try? If the bit is already flipped from doing the double upgrade then it should reactivate with the same key since all that is needed for the transfer is to reset the hardware signature in MS Activation servers.

You also have three simultaneous activations at any one time with the Family Pack, and do not forfeit an activation for reinstalling a key to the same or other hardware. If using phone activation because web fails, then when the magic question is asked "How many installs has this copy of Win7 been made" you'd say three instead of one. If rejected again, ask for agent. If agent has problems, talk with MS Customer service who are often more attentive seeing that you get what you pay for.

What's easier than Sysprep is to reimage using a free lightweight app like Macrium Imaging - Windows 7 Help Forums then if Win7 won't boot on the new hardware as expected Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD.

Let us know how this goes.

Hay there, I recently obtained a new system for a very cheap price with a surprisingly good processer with it.

New computer: -

Intel DQ45EK mobo
Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.9GHz Socket 775
3GB ram (max 4gb)

Current Computer: -

Gigabyte P31-D3SL mobo
Intel Pentium D 925 3.00 GHz Socket 775
4GB ram

Alright so the issue is I want to swap the processors around but when I put the Pentium D into the Intel DQ45EK mobo it comes up with a blank screen with the fan blowing intensely, reboots and then just hangs with the intense fan speed. When I swap back the processors the orignal Core 2 Duo does this same thing but then it goes back to normal after a few reboots. The E7500 works fine in my old system though... I would think the pentium D would be widely supported x-x

Any ideas cause im lost at the moment.

Could be that the FSB is not rated for the board.

Hi, everybody! I was looking to buy a new comp. but i am unsure which processor is better, the intel centrino core duo or the intel pentium M. I was wondering if someone could tell me what the difference was and possibly which one is better. thanks!

A:Solved: Intel Centrino Core Duo vs. Intel Pentium M

G'day myongha!

I would go with the Core Duo because it is more reliable and is quicker because there are two parts to the processor, hence the name Core Duo.

Ok guys someone please help me understand this better. Are intel core duo the best or fastest processor out now? Also if a laptop is Intel Core Duo 2.0 GHz and a pc Intel Pentium 4 3.66 GHz which processor is faster?

Im not understanding what the X.XXGHz mean...is that based on the processor?

I understand that Intel Core Duo has 2 processors and thats why they are so great....does that mean that it is 2.0GHz per processor? so its really 4.0GHz?

sorry if I'm way off here but I want to understand this better.


PS. Im not sure where this would go so please feel free to move if necessary.
