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.)

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)
wires with the GREEN BLOCK gets plugged into ... Read more

HI,I am not sure where this discussion should go but lets start here.
I still have not resolved the internet connection problems my PC so i think if i can afford another PC i will go that route now,but my question today is if i get a newer PC with a WIN7 OS already installed can i take the one out of the other PC install it in the newer PC and not bring a malware or virus problem with it and destroy newer PC.
I am not sure if you can do that but would like to know before i get into something i can not fix easily,thank you

A:new PC replacement

This is not a good idea. You will run into all kinds of problems - malware being the least concern. Drivers and activation will be your main problems. I assume your current OS is an OEM system.

A fresh system is always the way to go. And don't be afraid of Windows 8.1. It is a nice system. With a couple of days of training you will love it - fast, reliable and lots of nice features.

What are you looking for - laptop or desktop.

I currently have an open support case # 3035******, The issue revolves around an 8gig stick of ram that was bad causing a lot of problems. After the ram was identified as the problem, I removed it and the system works great, the issue now is getting a stick of ram from the largest computer company on earth, I am being told that the part is not available??? Something every computer on the planet has?Yet, I'm being told I have to send my system back for repairs, I guess I'm not a very smart person but if you can fix the problem if I return it then don't you have the parts available? I paid extra for the extended warranty with 3 day in-houserepair and that doesn't seem to be an option either, even though the "Geek Squad" is less than 20 miles from me and informs me they have ram which will work. Within the last 2 years I have bought 2 systems totaling over $3500.00from your company (to be honest the last $1500.00 was from HP to replace the original system I bought from HP which cost over $2000.00 in total). Is there no way of getting the part to fix my NEW system without just buying the part and installing it myself? If not, how about refunding the money I spent on the extra warranty which will more than cover the cost of the bad ram.

Hi i would suggest you to get a Quad Core (Core2Quad) instead if you can increase your budget a bit coz as you've mentioned that you do gaming and as new games taking advantage of 4 cores so it would be nice though E7600 is a good processor and you will see quiet much improvements compare to Celeron

Try reseating the memory modules. Continuous beeps like that generally indicate a memory issue, but it is also not impossible you damaged the motherboard in the process of replacing the screen. If so, sorry.

I bought a new fan for my Toshiba Satellite A45-S150 laptop because mine is grinding and I can tell it's about to die because I have had to replace it once before. Last time I replaced it I took it to CompUSA and they sent it away and it took about 2 weeks but they did it. I am in the middle of nowhere now, the nearest place that will do it is over an hour away. ]

Anyway, I bought the fan online myself and I tried opening up my laptop to replace the fan but I cannot get to it for the life of me. It was very frustrating. Does anyone know where to find a guide online for how to do this? I have tried googling it but I have had no luck. I have tried going to Toshiba's website but also, no luck. Please help!

Hi All,

With all the discussion around the forum about the pros and cons of vista's UAC, the news of a better alternative, when it arrived in my inbox today, (from Technibble), looked to be a perfect answer.

However a look around the web found this information on the package, (Smart UAC Replacement), found this warning about the developers of the package.

The package looks like a perfect answer to some of my annoyances with UAC and is available / recommended on sites I would normally class as trusted, so wanted to ask if anybody has any further information or comments.

Ok, emachine, t2984, Failed HDD, replaced with identical HDD that had been formatted. Hitachi Deskstar 80g. I have the restore DVD. It will load up.

I think it says missing C:windows system32 blah blah..ok. Yes I tried rebuilding the BOOTCFG. Will not work. Ok. so this is where I am at, I believe that I need to tattoo the HDD and can do this blind folded with an HP, however, emachine is being stubborn. I can not find any information on this whatsoever, its like a black hole of information to find the iso tattoo program for emachine. Can anyone in here point me in the right direction to tattoo (Flash) so that the restore disk will work properly. Yes I could reinstall a new OS but its a friend and he can't afford it right now.

A:Help with HDD replacement

Your eMachine T2984 is a high failure rate motherboard... well in excess of 60% after two years... Your problem could easily be caused by the eMachine motherboard failure. Your hard drive that came in the eMachines is likely good, as is the cpu, cpu fan, modem, and optical drive. But the motherboard and power supply are of such high failure rate that you will need to test them thoroughly with a power supply tester... and trying your hard drive and other components in another board.

A friend of mine called to say that their computer was shutting down randomly and the computer was running really loud. I stopped by and took the cover off and noticed it was the CPU fan. I just wrote down the model number of the PC and didn't measure the fan, assuming I would be able to find it online. Maybe it's there, but I'm not smart enought to see it. The computer is a Compaq Presario SR5233WM (GN578AA). Below are the specs I found on Compaq's site but I'm still not sure of the size of the fan and really hate to have to stop by again to measure the fan. Can any of you tell what size of fan it's using? Thanks.

What brand of laptop do you have? You can get one and replace it yourself at LCDs4Less, they usually run about $300 for a brand new on and about half that for a slightly blemished one. Depending on the laptop age, condition and specs it may not be cost effective to have someone repair it for you.

Did somebody knows how to replace HDD to SSD and set it up as a  primary boot disk?

A:Replacement of HDD to SSD

@Ed6467 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! There are various ways to do this, but I can tell you how I have done this -- several times. What I recommend is the following:1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR)2) Connect the new drive to the PC using a USB-to-Hard-Drive drive adapter (like the one illustrated below)3) Follow the instructions in this link: http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW/Cloning+a+disk4) Shutdown the PC when done5) Swap the drives and reboot the PC.You should boot from the new drive without any problems.NOTE: To do this easily, the SDD has to be the same capacity as the HDD.  IF you get an SDD that is a lot smaller, then before you do the cloning, you have to shrink the largest partition on the HDD (usually the OS partition), to the size such that it, and the other partitions, fit easily on the SSD. Typical USB-to-Hard-Drive adapter:  Good Luck

it is going to be hard without being able to compare the old drive next to the new drive to make sure it is going to be physically compatible. My Dell can use a few different drives yst they will not physically be the same and therefore even though they fit in the drive bay there is no way of securing them. There fore using what Dell has to offer is MY only option.

You may be better suited for a different drive though. I would make sure that you have a return policy if it doesnt work with what you buy.

A:Ram replacement

Welcome
The best advice that I can give you is, Do not buy 3gb of ram. This is called mix and match a big NO No. Go out and buy all that you need.

Been using Act! for several years on a desktop PC running XP, 32-bit. Just discovered Act! will not run on the new Win7, 64-bit machine we just set up to replace the dead XP machine. I need a replacement for Act!, something that tracks names, dates, appointments, addresses, phone numbers, etc. and that will pop up on-screen reminders.

Suggestions, please. Willing to spend up to $100.

If not, can you direct me to a one that would work. This is an old PC that is going to my young cousin, so she doesn't need anything fancy or with a lot of storage space. I just wnat to get the PC working for her to use until she needs a better one in the future.

THanks.

If you have the space inside, that is drive space, that one should work fine. Are you removing the present drive?

Hello,

My computer has been making a humming sound after it has been on a while. I took off the sides and blew out the dust, and alot came out of the fans. I noticed that one of the fans blades did not turn freely when I blew air on it. Hooked up the power cable and turned it on and the fan did not turn. Once and awhile it tried to turn but then would stop again. The fan is mounted on the motherboard and has ABIT printed on it. It is the smaller of the two fans mounted on the motherboard. How difficult is it to replace and what is it called? Is it the motherboard fan? Thanks for any advice.
