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.)

Could you guys recommend some good gaming headphones for my desktop? I'd like something sturdy and -- well -- loud.

My neighbours just brought home a cute, bouncing baby boy: their first. His mother had me carrry him for a while and he introduced himself to me with a great gob of drool, which -- strangely enough -- I found adorable.

Anyways, the kid's arrival next door means the end of my days playing games at almost full volume on speakers. My PC is set up in the bedroom, at a spot where I'm sure the noise just goes through the wall as though it weren't there. I don't want to disturb the child's nap time. I don't want to move my PC anywhere else in my cramped apartment, either.

So I'm about to put my speakers away now and I need some good gaming headphones to replace them.

I've taken a look at a few on the internet, but would like some recommendations from TS members.


PS: Not sure this post belongs here. If it doesn't, then I apologize to the board's administrators for the mistake.

A:Recommendations for gaming headphones

A4Tech cheap ergonomic headphones would by my top choice. I have here on my PC an A4Tech model T-120 and HS-23





Comparing, the loudest would be HS-23 with good measures of bass even on Dolby Surround environment. I think it's enough to give the baby his good night sleep considering you don't even need an expensive one.

I am looking to replace an old Linksys BEFSR81 ver 3.1 Wired Router.

I have searched through the forums here and have found some information that isn't quite was I was looking for. So I thought I would start a new thread, and ask this fantastic community that has been so helpful with suggestions, assistance and opinions in the past. I have always used a wired router, and I've been a bit hesitant to go the wireless "route" - but I believe from what I've been told recently, that routers basically are ALL wireless now, but come with the ability to be both wired and wireless. (?)
I spend a lot of time playing online games, and I also do a fair bit of downloading/file transfers/streaming content.I pay for a 60 Mbps download speed/ 3 Mbps upload speed service from my internet provider.

So I am looking for a router that would be ideal to meet these needs. I have been told that I should look at getting a dual or triple band/frequency wireless router, with the terms gigabit and 1000BASE-TX being mentioned as well. Although I am not to familiar with this new technology and terminology ... so that is why I came here.

Any help with pointing me in the right direction of a type or even brand of router would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much!

This is not technically a "support" question, and I hope it doesn't break any rules! I'm looking to get a 17" monitor (I have a 14" - yes, those still exist) and I was wondering if I could get some recommendations on good quality brands....I know Sony Trinitrons are generally considered to be the best but I'm looking to go a little cheaper if possible. Also, if anyone has any opnions about the wisdom of buying factory recertified/refurbished monitors.......Any help is much appreciate!

A:monitor recommendations

I use ViewSonic monitors (almost all of them are 17") here at work and they're not expensive. I would do a couple of searches on the web regarding monitors for a price comparison. Your general run of the mill monitors really don't need to cost alot and refurbished will also work. I would check out the guarantee they would offer with that. Just my opinion and I hope it helps you a little.

its come to the point where i need a new monitor. i currently have a 19" CRT which is getting darker and darker, loosing lots of its quality. i have done some shopping and i originally intended on getting an LCD monitor. but, i am a gamer mostly and with a radeion 9800XT i want a good monitor. to my understanding, LCDs do not refresh nearly as fast as a CRT unless you spend lots of money. so i was looking at an NEC 22" CRT monitor shown here: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=24-002-091&catalog=19&depa=1&section=1

Hi folks.

I'm going to need a monitor for my second pc. This is going in my bedroom and will be used for watching TV/ gaming/ movies etc.
On my main pc I'm using a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP and I love it to bits but I can't afford another one of those unfortunately.

My limit would be about ?250 and I think I'll need a 24" as I'll be viewing it from about 7 feet away.
I imagine my budget would mean a TN panel but if I get it at the right height that should be ok when I'm sat in bed.
Current monitor is 1920x1200. Is there any advantage to having 1920x1080 as there seems to be a lot of those currently?

So basically I'm asking for recommendations. Thanks for listening, John

A:New monitor recommendations please

Most of the lesser expensive panels are 1920x1080 resolution....as that is what HDTV standards are. I've got an Acer that was 23" and was around the $170 mark. It's fine for what it is...but in no way shape or form will compete with that 24" Dell that you have.

OK folks, time for me to spend again. I need an LCD monitor. I don't want built in cheesy speakers but I do want one that has height and tilt adjustments. This is my first LCD for home use and I'm not familiar with some of these brands; Hanns-G, Sceptre, FugiPLUS, LG and NG Neovo. Probably others too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?N=2010190020+4017&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=20

I'd like to stay under $200.00 and want DVI and analog. I don't play games and use it mainly for photo editing (not professional) and general use, Office and internet. I really don't care about wide screen either. 19 inch is fine.

I can read the specs and the always excellent reviews for every brand on Newegg but I'd like some real power user's opinions on brands and this is where we live so.......

See my specs for graphics and OS.

Thanks, Griffin

I'm looking for the best 19" LCD monitor that is available. I've only got less than AUD$600 to spend (strictly no overbudget).

At the moment checking a few newspaper ads, I've seen some nice 8ms monitors:
Hyndai L90D+
Phillips 190b6fb,fs
Samsung 193b
Acer AL 1922R

Will look at other monitors, and try to get them if possible.

Oh yeah, they must be 8ms, and if possible, pls give me the link to a review. If you have a monitor and you're recommending it, pls give reasons why.

I'm deathly afraid of ghosting (heh) which is why I'd prefer an 8ms monitor, although I'm aware 12ms monitors may sometime be better.

A:Anyone with recommendations for a monitor?

I've seen the Samsung 913n & it is one fine monitor, one I would certainly recommend over the 193b (especially if you're a gamer).

The only things that could've been added to it is a digital connection (it only has one analog) & it doesn't have a 0-pixel warranty. Other then that it's very good & almost perfect for fast gaming.

Okay, I have decided to ask techspot a question about what computer monitor to buy. For the past 4 years I've owned a 17" medion LCD monitor. It's old, but reliable. recently with new games, they resolution needs to be changed in game to support more monitor's max LCD resolution. I use my monitor for everything, including my XBOX 360.

What I am looking for is a monitor with a MAXIMUM price of 260 USD. Preferrable I would like an HD monitor. Though I have heard that computer monitors have a better resolution than TVs. Which means I'd like a monitor that will display HD so I can use it with my XBOX 360. I'd like to use my Xbox 360 at a 1080i resolution at least. But I do realize that computer monitors are better resolution that TVs. I DO see Computer monitors on newegg that are more expensive than normal monitors, and say they are HDMI. Could someone explains why these monitors are more expensive if computer monitors already display better resolution than an HDTV, wouldn't 1080p and 1080i be low resolutions?

Can anyone recommend a monitor that I may use with my XBOX 360 to achieve HD or better images? If I need an additional cable if the monitor does not say HDMI, can you link me to one?

In short I am looking for a monitor that will: Play my XBOX 360 games in HD resolution, take full advantage of my 8800GTS 640, and is widescreen.

OH! sorry for the double post, but I am hoping for the console to be able to display a 1080p or 1080i resolution, which I know the 360 can do. thats all

I have 2 internal and 3 external HDD's that I want to monitor. I have lost HDD's in the past and it has been a terrific PAIN! and while I know that monitoring software wont prevent this altogether, it could help.

I have tried a couple but for whatever reason the programs could not read the SMART data of my 2 internal drives.

Anybody have a recommendation for a good program?

A:Want recommendations for HDD monitor software

Other than SMART software included with drives, I'm not aware of any real-time hard drive monitoring software, but there may be some.

For temperatures, I use HWInfo.

For general health, I rely on SMART, Intel SSD toolbox, and occasionally Checkdisk or the drive manufacturer's own utilities. I usually use HD Tune as a benchmark when I first install a drive.

Frankly, I'm not sure how useful the monitoring tools would be in detecting an impending failure.

Greetings all!

I'm wondering if I could get any recommendations for a new monitor for my workstation. I'm currently running an older (mfr date 1999) 22" Mitsubishi Diamondview Pro at work which I really enjoy. It's made my old MultiSync 75 at home feel really blah.

I've considered going LCD or Widescreen LCD, but as this workstation is primarily for graphic design purposes, the Wide LCD aspect issues come into question, as does LCD color reproduction and viewing angle. I don't like tilting my head a half inch and all the colors on the screen change.

I've been searching through the net for new CRTs that are available and cost effective (sub $300) but have come up with few results -- it seems that LCDs have definitely dominated the marketplace at this point and sub $7k these displays just don't render anywhere close to the 100% NTSC, RGB etc that one seems to see with a CRT. (I'm aware that CRTs aren't 100% either - but they're closer).

NEC and Viewsonic seem to have the same CRT product lines that they've had for the last several years - and Viewsonic has recently been getting a lot of negative reviews for customer service and product reliability.

Does anyone have any ideas for a good flat monitor other than the NEC FE992? Not that I have anything against the FE992 -- but I'd like to find more options...

Hello TS,

I've recently decided I would like to try out multi monitor computing. My idea is to buy two 25' - 27' monitors to use in conjunction with my 32' monitor I currently own. I'd keep my 32' on my desk and mount the other two above it. I wouldn't necessarily be gaming on the two monitors. I would keep that on my 32'. They would mainly be used for multitasking when browsing,microsoft office work, photo editing, and programming.

So, my question to you all is this:

What are some good 25' to 27' monitors? I don't need anything top of the line. I would just like to get a feel for multi-monitor computing. Also, do any of you know of any decent dual monitor wall mounts?
Budget: $600.00
I'm using two 7950 boost cards - if anyone needed to know.

Edit: I also prefer purchasing my parts from Newegg.
Thanks in advance!

A:Monitor and wallmount recommendations

I can help you with the monitors, but maybe not the mounts. My first question is why do you want them to be on top of each other? I would recommend going horizontally. Monitors are kind of annoying if you have 3 and they are different sizes. But this really only a problem if you gaming along all 3. Is the 32"running at 2560x1440? Because if that is so, the resolution would be wierd if you have 2 1080P monitors + a 32" 2560x1440 one.

On a very strict budget of $600, trying to build the best possible system for under that amount. I intend to keep the Monitor (19 inch 1440 x 900 LCD), HDD, optical drive, keyboard and mouse from my existing system.

The computers MAIN use will be for Photoshop (CS6 for my wife's business), but I would like to have the ability to play games at medium high to high settings, specifically Skyrim, Starcraft 2, Witcher 2 and Mass Effect 2 and 3.

My only caveat about brands is with GPU, I insist on nVidia chipsets.

1) I was thinking about getting a 27-inch monitor (2560 x 1440) next year, so it would be great if the build could support a monitor that size and resolution.
2) SLI ready. Probably won't ever use it, but would be nice to have the ability.

Sorry for the long text, I'm trying to send as much information i have.

Hello forums!
A few years ago i built a new gaming pc because i wanted to be able to play high quality games. But since day 1 i've had nothing but problems. Whenever i play one of my high quality games such as "Assassins Creed, Tomb Raider, Battlefield 3 or Primal Carnage" the monitor goes completely blank showing a "no signal to monitor" sign after gaming for between 5 minutes to up to 2-3 hours. The monitor sometimes also shows different color stripes either for examples: orange, pink or grey. The sound of my friends on skype usually keeps going for about 20 seconds before going silent, the sound of the game shuts off instantly or goes in a loop or starts with a loud buzzing sound. The fans and the LED's on my pc are still going but i can't control anything on the pc making me have to force restart my pc on the power button.
I've been on this forum before talking to this guy who is helping me but he's been quite busy lately so i need some extra help.
I've updated all drivers to latest, i never overheat, the GPU does not go over 51C when gaming and CPU never goes over 51C either.

I have been looking for verification that if I buy the Dell 24 Gaming Monitor – S2417DG and attach it to my Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI that I will get full 2560x1440 resolution refresh rate 165 Hz with 1ms response as the Monitor specs are listed.
I can find no information that the HDMI will pass this level of output.
I have talked to Dell tech support and they do say that the HDMI port is connected directly to the  NVIDIA  GeForce GTX 1050T i with 4GB GDDR5 but I also have seen information that HDMI will not support this.
So I am looking for verification on this configuration being compatible/able to output the full capabilities of the video card to the monitor via the on board HDMI output?

A:Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567 HDMI Specs/Does HDMI out support full bandwidth for G-SYNC Dell Gaming Monitor – S2417DG

First of all, G-Sync as far as I know requires DisplayPort and will not run on HDMI.  Even if it does, I don't think even HDMI 2.0 has enough bandwidth for 1440p @ 165 Hz.  And even if it does though, all of the Dell systems I've seen have only had HDMI 1.4, which is only enough for 1440p @ 60 Hz.  But even if all of that isn't a problem, does the Inspiron 7567 have ONLY a GeForce GPU, or does it have an Intel GPU plus a GeForce GPU?  If it's the latter, G-Sync will definitely not work because in almost all systems that have both GPUs, only the Intel GPU is directly wired to the display outputs.  If your system has ONLY the GeForce GPU, then G-Sync should work in theory, but again you may have the bandwidth problems I mentioned above.

The specs thay i have in mind are; 1920x1080 res, 144mhz, below 4 ms, preferrably a VA panel since I play both competitive games and solo games which graphics and color are important and in my understanding, VA panels are in between IPS and TN.

Thank you!

Im buying this Dell UltraSharp 2209WA 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor

Its my first lcd , my lovely superbright diamondtron mitsubishi has finally bitten the dust

Ive done a bit of research and this is the monitor for me

problem is i know lcd's display best at their native resolution and for most things ill be running at at 1680x1050 , however with my current rig (and my upgrade being pushed back due to needing a new monitor) ill struggle to game at this res

so will it look/perform ok at 1280x1024 ingame? until i upgrade?

Hi archie

I use the Samsung 226BW which is a 1680x1050 monitor. Any game i play that my graphics card cant handle at 1680x1050 i lower the res of that game to 1280x800 in the games menu.

As 1280 is pretty close to 75% of 1680 and 800 is pretty close to 75% of 1050 its the settings i use for games like Crysis Warhead etc. You'll see when you get the monitor what is best but a setting of 1280x1024 will give you 76% and 97% of your native resulution and will make the image appear distorted

I'm curious if the monitor in the link below is bad for gaming? I really don't know anything about monitor specs, so could someone please give me an idea on the quality of this monitor?

Looking for new set of dual gaming monitors. I like Samsung and ASUS. 22-24 inch is what im looking for. two monitors. Loads of mixed reviews of everything. Willing to spend around ?200 each. Any advice on whats best would be greatly appreciated.

Looking at Samsung S24A350H

or the 22 inch version.

Get the Samsung 24's and don't look back. Maybe make sure they have universal mounting points for a riser stand and a possible third monitor later ! The Asus's are sweet but I would go with the Sammy's, I went with LG's and I wish I had waited for the prices to fall on the Samsung's.

Hi folks, my monitor blew up and I was looking at LCD monitors. I can't afford most of them, but was wondering about a couple that were in my price range. Is 21ms acceptable response time for gaming? This is the one I was checking out: http://www.directron.com/v293.html

Also found Acer one with 20ms in the same price range:

Otherwise, I guess I'll stick with CRT for now.

Really it's confusing, some people complain of 8ms and 12ms lcds ghosting, while other people get 25ms lcds that they say have no ghosting at all. I think it has more to do with the quality of the lcd.

I picked up a new LGe Monitor (L196WTQ), installed proper drivers and set everthing up.
It produces garbled desktop icons and a marquee like box around my mouse that flickers inconsistantly, images on my computer and the entire web are all completely fine.
Games like World of Warcraft are flickering, garbled, and some things just shouldnt be there. Perhaps it has something to do with the Graphics Card? I have a Radeon 9800 Pro.
Below is what I mean by "Garbled".

Could someone help find my problem?

Oh yes, my screen size is 1440x900 and at 60hrz

24 inch 1920x1080 is now the default monitor. No point going smaller. They cost <$200.

Other options include:
- Taking a risk and spending ~$300 on a 2560x1440 27 incher from eBay. Techspot has it on Xmas Shopping List.
- Spending a little more and getting either a 27inch 1080p monitor, or a productivity-oriented 1920x1200 monitor.
- Check out Dell website for more sizes and resolutions. You're gonna be paying for it, though.
