I have a computer that has 2 GB of RAM at 1066 MHz which is 1 yr. old, when I use google chrome, firefox and CS5 at the same time it only uses 61-65% memory, its weird that you only have one page open on chrome and it uses 200 MB memory, Are your browsers up to date? If not update it. I think it has something to do with your RAM, probably you have a memory leak from what I know. What are the extension and add-ons in your chrome that is using that much RAM? I have 32-bit W7 when its idle it uses 20% memory.

Hi!, my english is not so good, i need to know how avoid bottle necks on my hardware and I want to know things you need for help me.

A:Bottle neck and other troubles with RAM and GPU

but the computer it recognize like 800 Mhz do not know for what (1066 Mhz and DDR2 i think, and the PC recognizes it 800 Mhz, because have windows 7 x86 or 32 bits or BIOS does not be actualized, can it be?)

You can change that to 1066 in your BIOS

integrated GPU nvidia 256MB Gforce 6150 nforce 430 (actualized drivers) (i want change for GPU card and i do not know wich more convenient) i think does not support BR (no 3D, do not interest me on that, because my CPU not supports) i only want for common BR.

Adding another 1GB of RAM will drastically improve performance

2 ATI, nVidia? DDR2, DDR3? 256MB, 512 or 1GB? What models? nothing exceed to the use without create conflicts (i want to buy a gpu, trouble is it has that be equilibrated to my hardware)

Hi Folks,

I have a CAD SW that is just fast enough most of the time, but when it does certain things, it seems to take forever. For example, when I first load a file to start working with it, it takes over 3 minutes to get ready to use. Sometimes I use Task Manager>performance tab and it typically shows 25-33% CPU Usage, and I usually only see activity on 2 of the 4 CPUs. I watch the HDD (SDD) activity light, and it doesn't look like there's much activity.

Or, if I click "undo" in this program after making some small change, it might block and make me wait for over a minute before I can do something else.

Anyway, I'm curious to find out what takes it so long to do these things. I'm thinking it's a SW design issue, like the CAD SW isn't written to take full advantage of today's HW or something. Is this something I can figure out using Win 7 performance monitoring? Otherwise, what can I use to monitor the CAD SW and PC interaction and see what the bottleneck is?

I wasn't sure about something I was hoping someone could clarify this for me. I was wondering if the Front side bus speed of a Mobo is bottlenecked by the processors FSB? For example, if my mobo's FSB speed is 1333MHz and my CPU's FSB is 1066MHz, does this mean that they will bottleneck at 1066MHz, or are they independent from each other?


A:Front Side Bus bottle neck?

The CPU controls the FSB. The motherboard's FSB, as you speak of it, is just the highest FSB that the mobo is guaranteed to support. Some ASUS motherboards, for instance, can run at 1333MHz FSB when the processor supports it. But if the processor's FSB is 1066, that's what the FSB will be. But the FSB speed is determined by the processor.

I'm running a laptop with Win 8 & Google Crome and like the software to save my passwords which it is doing except for Gmail. It will not save them. Matter of fact the option box does not even pop up for me to try and save them. It will work for all other sites so is there a setting somewhere that I need to change to allow ALL passwords to be saved. If there is I can't find it and it's driving me nuts because I have to check my accounts numerous times each day. " Offer to save passwords I enter on the web " is selected in the Crome settings.

Do you mean tabs or windows?
If tabs...
Close all but the tab with the URL you want to open as your start window.
In the upper right, (below the [x] to close Chrome),
you will see an icon that is three horizontal bars.
Click this. (Left click!)
Go down to "settings" (near the bottom of the list), Left Click.
It will open a new tab.
In the second section (On Startup) you will see three options.
The third is "Open a specific page or set of pages".
Left click the link to "set pages"
Left click the button that says "use current pages"
and your current "list" will clear and become only the tab you have open.

I'm having an issue with my CPU. It seems that it is only using one of its cores. This issue first became apparent to me when I was trying to run Blacklight Retribution. It popped up a warning message saying that my computer does not meet the minimum requirements of have at least a dual core. And indeed the game was unplayable, with single digit fps constantly.

However when i go to the performance tab of my task manager it shows 4 graphs, meaning that 4 cores must be running. Then I go the boot tab of my systems configuration, click on advanced options and underneath the "Number of Processors:" check box (which is unchecked), it shows 1 as the number of processors.

My processor is an Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.60GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.6GHz.

These seem to be conflicting and I'm not sure what to do. Please help me.

As you can see, my device manager doesn't even show any processors, and only shows my computer as a Standard PC. And on the CPU-Z, at the bottom, it only shows that i'm running 1 core! (Also the same on task manager)

All chipset drivers etc were installed.

I've tried a few things, optimizing my bios and such, but im abit of a novice when it comes to the bios.

Please help, and anything you would like to know, I will be glad to be of assistance!

According to PC Wizard 2006, both my cores on my core 2 duo e6300 are running at 100degrees celcius. PCW also sais that my ram is running at 333mhz even though its 667mhz ram...?

Any ideas on the cause/solution for this?



A:Why is my core 2 duo e6300 cpu running at 100c and my 667 ram running at 333mhz?

DDR2 667 = 333.33 x2 = 667MHz. It is showing the true speed of your ram, but as it is DDR2, it is "double pumped" to an effective speed of 667mhz.

Also, your temps are too high. You should be in the 60c range. Check in your bios to see if it is also showing high temp readings there. It could also be an out of date bios, but if your temps really are that high, you'll want to reseat that CPU with some new thermal paste.

No, not correct. That board supports 6 core cpus with a bios update. You must have 2005 or later to support the cpu.

If you are running a bios that does support that cpu, then list ALL of your specs ie brand and wattage of pw supply, brand, speed, and amount of ram, what video card is installed, etc, etc.

I have a dell studio 1747 laptop, refurbished. It is sitting at ~70c when doing basic tasks, after a bit of gaming it has peaked at 97c. All these temps are from HWmonitor laptop is running windows 7 ultimate. Am I going to fry my cpu? Should I rip it apart and replace the fan? Is this a decent temp for an i7?

A:Core i7-720 running extremely hot

i7s (and nearly all other nahelem processors) will run hotter than previous generations of quad-core cpus, especially inside a laptop. i don't think you have too much to worry about, but if you have access to the processor without to much disassembly you may want to consider applying a more conductive thermal compound, to suppress the heat a bit more. you may also want to check if the cooling fan is working properly like you said.

First of all, I am curious what the difference is between the 2 CPU readings as one is nice and cool while the other is ridiculously hot.

I am using a Core I7 processor with the heatsink and fan that it comes with. How is it running this hot? I just re-seated it and cleaned all of the dust out without any luck.

Note that these readings are when the CPU is fully loaded, not idling. I used speedfan to make all of my CPU related fans always on max as well which also changed nothing.

Is there anything I can do other than buying some watercooling system or new components?

Hey people, I've been having a little trouble, you see I would really like to overclock my CPU, which after reading a number of other forum threads would be fine on stock cooling past 3GHz. The problem is though, my CPU seems to run way hotter than everybody else's on stock cooling. I've read of people getting up to easily past 3GHz on stock cooling barely breaking 60C if even that. But I've been testing mine at stock settings using CPU Stability Test 6.0 and Core Temp 0.99.4, and after about 3 mins of the stability test it settled at around 74C on core1 and 70C on core2. Now I'm worried that if I overclock it's going to run dangerously hot. Does anybody have any suggestions or things to check other than buying a new cooler? If not, then I will likely consider buying one, because it just seems to be running at least 10-20C hotter than everyone else with the exact same setup. Anyway, thanks in advance.

Check the heatsink's four mounting points to see if they are solidly in. If any of them have come loose, it will lose enough contact with the CPU to let it overheat. If any are loose, while you can pop it back in for the time being, you should eventually remove it, clean it, reapply thermal compound and reinstall it.

Right now my Intel Core Duo is at 49'c After I was just playing Need For Speed Most Wanted. It will idle at 35'c which is great but at times my CPU will get up to 54'c. I know this is pretty warm for some desktop computers but is it the same for laptops? I have a 7900GTX in may laptop also and I was wondering if maybe some of hte heat from it could be rubbing onto the CPU's temp. I am using Everest Home Edition to moniter my temps. If anyone knows if this is good or bad please let me know.

- Thanks.

A:Is my Intel Core Duo Running too hot?

Hi all,


My quad-core processor is only running 1 core. I have scrawled the web for fixed and such, but I'm having no luck :(. Here are some images from my device manager, and CPU-Z for proof, and the problem.



As you can see, my device manager doesn't even show any processors, and only shows my computer as a Standard PC. And on the CPU-Z, at the bottom, it only shows that i'm running 1 core!

I've tried a few things, optimizing my bios and such, but im abit of a novice when it comes to the bios.

Please help, and anything you would like to know, i will be glad to be of assistance!

Thanks for your time


A:Help! Quadcore only running 1 core!

Try Device Manager, expand both Computer & Processors in the left pane. See what they say (screenshot for dual core).

It could be possibly because of programs running on your computer.

What programs do you have open in your taskbar? Do you have Anti-Virus?

I'm very worried about it

Just look at this image:

It is running WAY too hot. All my case fans are running @ 100%, the CPU fan runs above 2000 RPM's, and my room temp is about 72F (gets up to 90F or a bit more in summer).

My Vcore is running normal, I just overclocked my CPU to E6400 speeds (1.8 Ghz stock).

What should I do? Reduce my overclock, reseat the ****ing Intel HSF, or what?

I don't want to kill my precious CPU

Any advice?

EDIT: I measured the temp using CoreTemp, and I've got mixed results:

Intel's TAT reports worse temperatures, while Core Temp shows better ones. What program should I trust?

A:My Core 2 Duo E4300 is running too hot :(

DAMN that is hot! Try getting more cooling in there ASAP and downclocking the frequency. Also, try keeping the PC away from direct sunlight, since that causes the air in the case to heat up.

I had another break down yesterday while swapping out an under voltage PSU for one that was up to scratch. Now in doing so I have put enough pressure on the large Arctic Freezer 13 Pro cooler to break what I found to be a VERY flimsy retaining bracket.
This allowed the Intel Q9650 to run away and I didn't notice it for some time as the cooler tower looked to be in place and it wasn't until things started to go ape that I knew something was up.

Now i have it up and running again reinstalled the OS and find it is running very slowly have redone the compound twice now but the temp is still reaching 70C during say a MBAM scan plus Core Temp is now reporting only one core.

So not having this problem before can a quad core run on one only?

Mt other query is that I use this machine to test other softwares before using them on my man machines and if I have to would this set up be ok for just general use?
I intend using the case although I cannot access the backside of the motherboard for a back plate for instance the PSU is ok and I have a stack of DDR3 RAM I can use
With a budget in mind the parts in question are $280 all up

Intel Pentium G2130
ASUS H61M-A-USB3 Motherboard
CoolerMaster Hyper T4 CPU Cooler
ASUS GeForce GT 620 1GB or Gigabyte GeForce GT 610 Silent 1GB (I could possibly do without this so $600 less)

You do realize they SLI larger cards and even run tri and quad configurations.

If you had an i3, you might should worry about bottlenecking. However with an i5, I think you are good to go. Even then it would depend on how CPU intensive your games are.

I have the latest software version of Tascam's GVI.

GVI IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED. Tascam has closed this division of the company.

My software loads sampled instruments just fine except for one thing. Samples that have coding in them to use a reverb (a part of gvi) called gigapulse will not load. I get a shell error. This happened in both xp 32 , vista 64 and windows 7 64. Ram has been thoroughly checked and replaced and checked with memtest. Its fine. Motherboard shows no other errors. This system runs flawless. W7 is excellent by the way.

What I know. Shell error. Here is the error. I am hoping that it is a problem I can solve by editing the registry. The only problem hardware wise is a possible chipset (driver has been updated and did not solve) incompatibility.

Okay, background, I once heard a story (zen) about a duck in a bottle.

Today, I got the idea of making a picture like this. Seemed easy- at least if I used clip art and the right sizing. Get an outline of a bottle and put a smaller size picture of a duck so it looks like it's in it.

But, I got the idea of taking a picture of various bottles (some old) I have around the house, and putting a duck (picture) in it.

Not as easy as it sounds!

Just copy paste, it looks like the duck is ON the bottle.

I got some good pictures of bottles, some with background (grass and sky) showing through them. And there's a cute yellow rubber duck in Photoshop samples.

I know it must have something to do with layers but I don't know much about this (yet). I'm thinking something like cut the bottle out of the picture, put the duck in, then make the bottle semi transparent (the picture, it already is, being glass) and put it back on OVER the duck?

I don't know how to make something transparent (I tried, it didn't work)

Or, put the duck "on" the bottle (where it would be in it) and use a glass filter/effect of some kind over it (the bottle)?

Just something I'd like to use to learn from. I have PSP7, Photoshop 6 and 7.

And, a few other programs (not sure they'd relate but they do other things) like FLASH 5 and Publisher. And Word, with clip art (looked in there and nothing seemed suitable, and it wasn't realistic looking)

This is proba... Read more

I believe I am trying to do the impossible, but what the heck, it's a slow day.

The problem I have is that I am trying to RR on XP Pro and so far I am having a real issue with my IRQ's. The ACPI has allocated IRQ 17 to the sound card and I want to change it to IRQ 5. I have checked the properties on the card and the change box is grayed out.

The system info is:

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.20GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9

RAM: 1278 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller, 64 Mb

Motherboard: Dell Computer Corp., 0G1548, A, ..CN7082138BE06O.
Antivirus: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: Enabled

I would assume that I have to disable ACPI and have come across several ways to do it, but the postings are ancient so I really don't trust them.

What happens now is I either get an error box or if the "Test Sound" works the result is really jerky. As yet I have not got the program to even run and I have tried both the DOS box from Windows and DOSBOX. Both will let me run Set Up, but no joy for running.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

it gets bsod after about 10 minutes or so but only when running with 3-4 cores running.Run just 2 cores nad it is fine.Tried reloading windows but get throught installing partway and crashes again only with more then 2 cores running. Installs fine with just 2 cores.Reflashed motherboard to most current bios so that I could run this 4core as before I only ran a 2 core processor..BFG says that this q9550 is compatible with there board with current bios.I have provided a dmp below for help diagnosing this problem.I do have another q9550 to possibly try out it the mini dump points in that direction.Memory has passed MEMTEST.
Thank you for your help

A:bsod with 3 or more core but not 2 cores running

Snapmit, can you upload the .dmp file? Just copy it from the minidump folder and zip it up. That is unreadable.

Also, this may be either a heat problem or incompatible BIOS. Make sure that your temps are reasonable.

I just put together my new computer, but it's acting strange at times. The computer has the following:

MB: Asus P5K WiFi-AP
CPU: Core 2 Duo 6420
RAM: 2 GB OCZ Dual Channel 1066 Hz (2 x 1 GB DIMM)
GPU: XFX GeForce 8800 GTS
HS: WD 160 GB
CD-ROM & Floppy: these drives came w/ the Gateway computer that occupied the case before this computer!

I just put it together and installed windows, so there are no programs on it except the drivers for the hardware and the ASUS utilities provided with my mother board. It starts up nice and quickly, but shortly after windows starts, the computer becomes sluggish for a few seconds (The cursor stutters as it moves, etc), then returns to normal. The odd thing is that there are no programs running, and the process list shows nothing in the background is using the processor, but one of the processors is completely occupied. It always does this shortly after startup, and sometimes does this later on too, though there doesn't seem to be any reason. I included some screen shots that have more information.

A:Intel Core 2 sometimes sluggish with nothing running

Ok, well, the problem seems to be "fixed". (Knocks on wood!) I went through and disabled as many startup options as I could, and it didn't seem to help. I unistalled as many of the drivers as i could and basically stripped it down to a nearly fresh install, also to no avail. So I reformatted and reinstalled XP, and it seems to be fine now. I've reinstalled the drivers (but not any of the utility programs) one by one trying to find out which one caused the computer to lag, and none of them created any problems. So as far as I can tell, it was either one of the ASUS utility programs, or it was some kind of fluke!

I have just installed an AMD Athlon 4800+ Dual Core socket 939 processor (Retail) along with the heatsink and cooling fan it came with.
Everything booted up fine and the processor was immediately recognised.
The cooling fan ran at 1600rpm at idle.
I then loaded it up with 3 multimedia programs doing stuff and got both cores working 100%. The temperatures rocketed from 42 Deg C at idle to a massive 70 Deg C. At which point I stopped all programs. The core temp then feel quickly back to 42 Deg C.
Could someone advise me what to do? I know there are many retail fans out there that are better than the AMD stock coolers, but surely the AMD's should at least keep the thing from melting???
I would appreciate you comments. By the way I'm running at standard BIOS settings. No overclock.
