I am trying to upgrade the video card on Model T2460 Emachines to a XFX Geforce 7800GS AGP 256mb DDR3 DVI/VGA/tv_out card.

My computer has the following:

2400 AMD Athlon XP Home Edition Processor

256 MD DDR

3D ProSavage8 w/ available AGP slot (this is the vid card)

60 GB Hard Drive

Model T2460 Emachines

I am having issues installing. When I started I disabled the video card, and shut down the CPU. When I booted back up, I had no graphics after replacing old card with new card. I switched back to the old card, and still no graphics. I had to keyboard control my way through and went into properties to enable the card, still nothing. I unplugged the card. I popped the system battery out for a little bit for the motherboard to reset and system came back to normal I think. Can anyone help me replace the card? Thanks in advance!

A:Upgrading Video card on Model T2460 Emachines

So you are deleting the old video drivers, shutting down the system, installing new card and plugging monitor into the new card, booting up and getting NOTHING on screen?

Couple questions:

1. Do you have your PSU connection going directly to the video card?
2. Scary question. Tell us a bit more about your PSU.... how many watts?

I'm trying to upgrade a brand new Envy 14t laptop to include an SSD to improve its performance. No SSD was available as a CTO option when I purchased the computer, only 1 and 2 TB 5400 RPM HDDs. I replaced the HDD with a brand new SSD (identical size) and attempted to run HP recovery manager via bootable USB (media just created).  The recovery manager opened, but failed at the 50% level in the first step (formatting the hard drive).  It showed error ?0xEFFFFF23?. I tried again, this time with secure boot disabled - same thing. I have also tried with a different SSD and got the same result. HP support had me run the hard disk diagnostics which just showed:- Smart check: not installed- Short DST: not installed The tech support agent claimed that the drive was defective, but I find it hard to believe that 2 different, new out of the box SSD's would both be defective.  I'm not that familiar with UEFI.  DId I do something wrong?  Do I need to convert the SSD to GPT before I run HP Recovery manager?  Do I need a new copy of the bootable recovery media? Thanks for the help.

Hello, I have been using my laptop: HP Envy 17 for more than 4 years. I have recently run into a problem that has been causing very slow processor speed and buffering. As in, I am not able to do anything as soon as it launches. I do not remember dropping my laptop recently, or any physical damage, however it might have been caused during some travelling. I have went into the BIOS settings to find out what the problem was and ran into this Error code "GUSPHL-6RU8HN-MFGJXF-60UR03" which had to do something with my hard drive from my "Hard Drive Short DST Check."Please Help

last week i was trying to install programs to recover deleted pictures from an ipad. I turned off the PC when i couldnt complete one of the installation. When turning on back the PC it took a while to load, the welcome page kept on cycling for minutes. The taskbar loads but the desktop screen later loads up. What i realized was that the program disabled Safemode, i cant click on the start menu, wifi notification has been disabled, some programs have been disabled and some give me messages about endpoint and THE DEVICE IS NOT READY. I can't even press F11 to do system recovery. I can't even do system restore.

I purchased a Flex 3 through the Lenovo site for a black friday special and have been having severe problems with it ever since. I'm really at my wits end with what to do with this machine. Sporatically, my physical keyboard and trackpad will stop working and the issue can't be reset until I let the unit battery drain and die. This is no way to use a laptop. I can not figure out a triggering issue for it, it happens randomly.  I have called the tech support hotline 3 times and tried chat twice and no one has been able to help me resolve this issue. The tech support personnel have been extremely unhelpful and have talked over me when I attempt to explain what is going on, and refused to transfer me to another associate or escalate my issue to a supervisor. I feel like I was sold a defective unit.  What can I do?

I am trying to deploy an image onto a newer model Lenovo M900 PC.  I use a bootable USB to get to diskpart then imagex to deploy the image.
The USB stick containing the .wim image file will not display in diskpart.  Its recognized during BIOS boot, however once within the windows command prompt section where you use the diskpart and imagex commands, it won't display or be recognized.
I have a feeling its something to do with this newer model Lenovo having only USB 3.0..  I had to enable USB Virtual KBC Support to get the USB keyboard working in BIOS initially as well, however still no USB memory sticks displaying
Any ideas?

Let me start off by saying that this is mostly a guess right now. I've had my computer suddenly shut down while playing game like Starcraft 2 and Mirror's Edge with settings on maximum (my computer and graphic card can support it). I've looked at the event logs for system or application, and the 3 times I had a sudden shut down seems to be due to CCC.exe (ATI's Catalyst Control Center). My video card is currently idling at 80 celsius, my CPU was at about 60-65 Celsius

I opened my computer earlier, cleaned up all the fans and plugged the 200m top case fan. The CPU temp dropped to 40 celsius average (which is awesome). Even after cleaning the fan, the video card stayed on 80 celsius idle (but the fan speed dropped from 26% to 23% to keep that temperature). So it seems like the software wants to keep it around the temperature.

So I am left with several options:
1) Via the Catalyst Control Center, I can manually set a fan speed (for instance, putting it at 33% drops it to idle at 60 celsius). The thing I never noticed is if my fan speed increased during gameplay, of it temperature rose. Also, to activate the manual fan, I have to activate the overclock utility, which is acting... weird.

It has 2 panels. One shows the GPU frequency and memory frequency that you want to set. The second panel shows what are the current GPU frequency and memory frequency. When I launch the application, it says my current GPU frequency is 750 MHZ, then it drops to 500 M... Read more

Well...you can get the latest drivers for the card, but it won't help that much, because it's a TNT2...and PCI....

If you wanted to play newer games, you'd have to get a new video card....but if you're running a PCI video card right now, then it may not be worth it...check if you have an AGP slot, is should be above the PCI slots on the motherboard, and slightly offset from them...if you have an AGP slot, then that's good, because you could get a good video card...but if you don't, you'll probably be better off getting a whole new system rather than just upgrading the video.

In reading this forum and feedback over the last week or so pertaining to the XPS 15 products and the Battery  I decided before my wife and I each plunk down $2300 each for new laptops I better find out if replacement batteries are available....  Well,   after being on the Phone with 5 different people today at Dell in both Sales and tech Support...  The Batteries Are Not Available.  That makes the Dell xps 15 the smallest door stop in my house.

A:Upgrading Issue

Welcome to TSG....

If you are running the newest stuff then there is not much updating your video driver will do since there is no newer driver for the card.

Other than using windows xp and an Intel dual processor can you post some system specs on your computer and explain the problems you are having with playing games like the game(s) and error messages you are getting?

Just to be clear, 32-bit is actually 16,777,216 colors, so its much more then 256 which is just 256 colors. So for 256 you need to lower the color depth not increase it.

As I've found out by some Steam games having FPS drops and outright crashing at times, my CPU is fairly outdated. I'm looking to upgrade to 3.3 GHz (from 2.4 GHz) in order to meet the minimum of my games, but as it turns out the CPUs compatible with this model only go up to 2.8 GHz. I've tried overclocking, but can only reliably get 0.4 GHz out of it, any higher and thermal throttling occurs (note that I only have the stock cooling system). I'm wondering if there's other CPUs that would work in this model that would hit 3.0 GHz or higher. If not (which is in all likelihood the answer), I was wondering if it would be cheaper/easier to upgrade to the 2.8 GHz CPU, upgrade the cooling system, and try to overclock from there, or if it would just be better to get a new computer entirely.

I am having an issue when attempting to upgrade my Windows 7 installation to Windows 10 using the USB created by the MediaCreationTool. It skips asking me what I want to save, so I assume it is going into the upgrade properly. It then asks me to check for updates, and whether I do or do not I then get to "Making Sure You're Ready To Install." This is when I get the error:

"Something happenedWe can't tell if your PC has enough space to continue installing Windows 10. Try restarting Setup."

There's 153GB of free space on this partition, so this should not be an issue. I have two 1TB HDDs. The main one (Disk 0) has my Windows 7 installation, which I am running this from, and a small Ubuntu partition. The second (Disk 1) only contains my Windows 7 backups, including a system image. I'm including a picture of the setup. Disk 2 is the USB I am attempting to upgrade from.

When I attempt to upgrade via Winows Update, I get another issue. I don't want to waste the data on redownloading it every time, so I'd prefer to get it to work with the USB I've already downloaded.

A:Issue with Space When Upgrading

My guess is that it is probably the 100mb system reserved partition. I would install MiniTool Partition Wizard - shrink the C: drive partition by 350mb (megabytes, not gigabytes!) putting the free space in front of it, then expand the 100mb system reserved partition into the free space making it 450mb total in size.

3: Would you please advise if it is easy for me to do it myself?

A:Lenovo G50-70 RAM Upgrading issue

hi qaimkhan,
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
Just to verify, the Kingston 4GB (PC3-12800 CL11) 1600Mhz that you purchased, is it a DDR3L (1.35v) or a regular DDR3 (1.5v)?
Looking at the page 28 of the hardware maintenance manual, the G50 series specifically accepts a DDR3L RAM and the memory controller only supports DDR3L. If you purchased a regular DDR3 (1.5v), this might be the problem.

Hello all,

I've been trying to upgrade my PC from Win 8 Pro to Win 10 Pro but after about 2/3's way into it, I see a message stating that it's Reverting back to the previous version of Windows.

In the past 3 attempts at upgrading, I tried to keep an eye on it to catch the point where this happens so I can see what needs to be fixed, but haven't been able to catch it.

Of note, when I initially run the upgrade program it does do a diagnostic checkup on my system in which everything shows to be fine and continues with the upgrading process for a good 1.5 hrs.

Is there anyway to find out what's causing it to Revert back (without sitting at the screen for a few hours)?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
The specs in my sig is a different PC.

A:Windows 10 not upgrading issue

Have you uninstalled all third party anti-virus and anti-malware programs? Have you removed all unnecessary hardware, especially from USB ports? I'm not familiar at all with troubleshooting from the upgrade log files, but others are here.

Since upgrading from win 7/64 we have had probs with wlm 2012. In essence we can receive but can't send. after creating the email and clicking send, there is no response at all. Using any other email address renders the same problem.

We have a Lineone address which uses Tiscali settings which we have double checked with Talktalk. We are using webmail at present, but this is inconvenient as we have another email address which we use (BT) which makes a client system better than webmail.

We will try the repair function to see if this fixes this; I notice very much mixed reports with WLM and win 10 with quite a few having issues, but other saying its working fine. I wonder what the the issue is?

A:wlm 2012 issue after upgrading from 7.1

I am using WLM since Win 7 and I am stull using it.
I never have to use the Repair option. Would like to know how effective is the option.

Sound problem after upgrading to windows 10.I had been running Windows 10 on  my HP ENVY 15t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook back but had to do a restore back to Windows 8.1. Nothing was wrong with my sound but a week or so later, I upgraded back to Windows 10 and now the sound seems very faint. If I preview a test sound, all seems fine but when I open any program that has a sound with it, it sounds soft. I use to keep my volume at about 40% and that was always plenty loud. I now put it at 100% and it sounds about where it might have been when I had it at 40%. I looked for a new driver on the HP site but the driver says it was released in 2013 which is before Windows 10 came out so I don't know if I should download it.When checking under device manager, it says my driver is from  July 2016 and I believe it's a generic Microsoft driver.What driver should I use?

A:sound issue after upgrading to Windows 10

Hi: If you are having issues with the generic MS driver, I suggest you install the W10 driver (which is really a W8.1 driver) from your notebook's support page, and restart the PC. The reason your audio doesn't work so good with the generic driver is that it doesn't have the Beats Audio enhancements the HP driver has. Most forum members that have your model notebook reported success by installing the driver on the support page.

Since updating to Windows 8.1, my computer has picked up an odd habit when it goes to sleep. I put it to sleep (S3) as usual. Then, 10 minutes later (not roughly, I timed it several times, 10 minutes) it will wake back up momentarily. The display doesn't come back on. Judging from my LED light, I get the impression that it's writing a hibernation file onto my hardisk. Then it goes back to sleep.
Waking the computer back up after it does this is more time consuming than usual. It's usually a 2-3 second process, now it's upward of 12-14 seconds. Waking the computer back up before it does this gives me the normal result.
Now, I've never used hibernation or hybrid sleep modes, I don't know if this is how they typically work or not. I have gone through and made sure all of these modes are disabled in every way that I know how to. I have even gone to the BIOS and disabled Hibernation all together and it still does this. It's either not doing what I think it's doing or it's somehow become stuck on doing it.
I don't have any scheduled task telling it to do anything like this either.

A:Peculiar Sleep Issue after upgrading to 8.1

Update: It seems this was some fuction enabled in my Bios, called RTC (real time clock?) wake. I found it by complete accident while messing around in my Bios and going into the Intel Rapid Start menu. It was set to do this at 10 minutes and I disabled it, the problem seems to be gone. It's always been enabled but must not have worked "correctly" with my set up but when I updated to Windows 8.1 and updated all my drivers for it, I must have "fixed" it.
I'm still not entirely sure what it's doing or why it took so long to load up after it had done it. My main concern was I didn't want my PC constantly writing a big hibernation file onto my SSD.
