Preferred Solution: please help new here CPU running 75c average

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.)

A: please help new here CPU running 75c average

75c is way too hot to be near-idling at. Is this the first time you've built a computer? I'm betting you installed the HS/F wrong. You're going to need to take off your HS/F, reapply thermal paste, and install the HS/F correctly.

I have percentages in a column (C3 thru Cx) updated daily. I need to show a running average of all successive daily averages. The daily and overall "process average" will then be displayed on a chart. (no problems doing that). The daily figures are calculated from two other columns that make up the %=x/y function.
I can't seem to use any of the existing AVERAGE functions to automatically recalculate the new number of cells to be averaged as they are added each day. I don't want to have to manually write in a c3,c4,c5 then next day c3,c4,c5,c6 etc. averaging sequence.

Have looked at 2 prior 'Running Average' posts, still need help. Issue: Have two columns; 1st is 'number entry' (a new # each day), and 2nd column is the 'Running Avg'. What is the formula that when you add subsequent #s in row 1, the formula automatically adjusts for addition of new number, to then calculate the new 'running avg.' (with out changing the prior 'running averages'.) ....Thanks much.

I recently switched jobs and am challenged daily with new Excel spreadsheets. I have a spreadsheet with daily figures (365 rows plus weekly totals) and my boss wants to also see a running average. Is there an averaging formula that will add a new field each time so that I can copy the formula and not need to enter it for all 365 days?

You can use COUNT to give you the number of cell that there are data in and use that number to create your average. Of course there is the AVERAGE function you can use on a range of cells also.

Hi all,

Just wondering: I run my PC on an average no-name brand UPS to safeguard against sudden power outages. Not so uncommon in my part of the world so almost a necessity, not a luxury. Problem is that the UPS is nothing special while my PC is a power sucker - GTX780 Ti Super clocked, core i7 4770K over clocked, several USB devices, 2 SSD's and 1 HDD, multiple fans etc. All fed by a Corsair 1050W PSU. Will the UPS potentially reduce performance of the PC or cause it to BSOD if it cannot deliver enough power? It has not happened yet. Or does it not matter as long as the UPS is being fed from the wall plug?

A:Running an average UPS on a modern high powered PC

Running a high powered PC with a cheap UPS doesn't make much sense. Any UPS is going to have a maximum power rating, and with a cheap one the actual capabilities may not match advertised specs. If at any time the UPS is unable to supply the required current there are going to be problems. That means possible spontaneous shutdowns, BSODs, or damage to either the UPS or computer.

Not recommended.

Hi,

Does anyone know a formula for the following? Any help would be great.

A simplified example of what Im looking for is:

I want to find a running average for the amount of miles I drive every week. Collumn A is the days of the week, Collumn B is the miles I drive which are added each day and in Cell C1 I need a running average.

So on Monday if I do 100 miles, C1 will be 100 (100/1)
Tuesday I do 200 miles, C1 will be 150 (100+200/2)
etc

I know there is a formula that keeps a running average in collumn C, but I need to have it in just one cell.

Thanks in advance.

Dear HP Computer On November 3, 2016 morning, I sent my HP desktop computer (Windows10 and MS Office installed) to HP Service Center Jakarta.  In front of the HP service personnel, I backed up the data from hard disk as it was the only suggestion given.  The computer was in working condition when HP service personnel took it over. On November 7, HP service officer called and said the computer had no problem, and he just needed to fix some files.  On November 8, I picked up the computer.  At home I found out that the system was "downgraded" to Windows8 and MSOffice was "not properly"installed. As this was a paid service, I think this service was below average of typical services provided by HP. cw

A:The average life of a GPU

A GPU's lifespan is at least 3-5 years. Hell, if you take care of your components it will last as long as you need it to in most cases. The fact that your GPU's are dieing in a year is strange. If this has indeed happened to all of your GPU's it is safe to say that the operating conditions inside your PC may not be too good. Or, you may just be burning them out? Do you SUPER overclock them or something? What sort of operating temps do you usually get?

What temp is that case or CPU? If case then what's the CPU temp? Your CPU temp is fine under 65C while under load (gaming, someother heavy processing workout, i.e Prime95). At idle it should be around 30-35C with air cooling and standard room temp. 65C is getting hot and I wouldn't want mine to get any hotter then that, in fact that's the upper safe limit. You really want it no hotter then mid 50's. (under load)

Hello all!

Some of you may know me. Like my software and WinSxS (I love the way WinSxS all fits together!) but am utterly clueless about the hardware. Please forgive me this question!

I have a DESKTOP PC which is NOT overclocked in any way. It is reasonably powerful (see specs) and is a Dell. However, it is used to the extremes of its ability - regularly.

I would just like to ask you what the temperatures you would consider good, warm, and hot for both the GPU and CPU. I know the GPU can get quite hot, but I would please like to know how hot, so that I can learn.

I have a feeling that mine are quite hot. Most of the time I get:

CPU: 52 degrees Centigrade (C)
GPU: 128 C

These seem awfully hot. Putting my hand on the GPU plastic casing after use makes me think that these are not anomalous!

Thanks so much in advance!

Richard

EDIT: All of the fans have been confirmed as working, and it has good airflow all around, and always has had.

A:At what temperature does an average CPU and GPU become too hot?

Hello Richard, I am not really knowledgeable in this area & can only reflect on my own research so that i can monitor my own temps which basically indicates 70 degrees C and below in both cases as being comfortable temps.

In posts i have read concern is usually expressed in 80c+, your CPU looks fine mine runs at 50-65 & max 72c under heavy load. I use Core temp to monitor which also has overheat protection

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

The tjmax is the CPU manufacturers max temp (assume critical) & safe temps to be 15c-20c below this.

As far as your GPU it looks extremely hot but i do not have a solution for you other than cleaning & extra cooling which i am sure you are already aware of. (my desktop has settings in the BIOS for the fan)

Here are my temps which are for a laptop;

I did a search and found 2 similar named threads, but neither seemed to pretain, so, I'm starting a new thread.

I'm a computer consultant, but I've run into an interesting situation. I have a WinXP Pro system 3.4ghz LGA processor 1 gig of DDR400 ram, 2 100+ gig HDs, a CD Burner, and a DVD/CD Reader, Nvidia GeForce 5700LE (256) video, SP2, and all latest updates installed.

What is occuring is when I leave my system sit with any program running either in the background or foreground, for 20 minutes or more, the system will bog down. When I check the Task Manager, it shows Explorer.exe floating between 48-50%, with memory jumping around. 160,000 - 280,000K, thought it was climbing but watched it and it keeps fluctuating. System.exe is showing 30-40%. It doesn't matter what program I may leave running, from WinMX to MS Word 2003.

The only way to clear it is to log out. I don't have to reboot, just log out of the shell. Logging back in and the system runs great. Now, if I have say WinMX going, typing a report in Word, have IE going doing a search... moving around the system, active, the system seems to run fine, I don't notice any slow-down, but if I leav...

There are indexing programs that run to index the hard drive when it thinks the system is idle. Microsoft Office comes with find fast. Some of the desktop search programs use this also. Check msconfig for these programs and uncheck them.

Just recently moved to a new apartment and had to ditch my dsl for cable. I got the highest service available which was 1536kb/512kb. Now when I do the bandwidth tests on websites I can only get anywhere between 150-200kbps. I had a tech com over here and hook it up correctly, or so it seemed, because it was going very slow to start with. He showed me it was working by downloading a 100mb file and the transfer rate was hitting from 150-250 KB. Just wondering why it is that the internet seems soooo utterly slow but most of the downloads are realitively fast. Maybe I am misunderstanding some term or something but I know this cable line should be higher on the BW tests than 150-200 kbps! I have tried 8 seperate tests to check and all were about the same.

Hello all!

Some of you may know me. Like my software and WinSxS (I love the way WinSxS all fits together!) but am utterly clueless about the hardware. Please forgive me this question!

I have a DESKTOP PC which is NOT overclocked in any way. It is reasonably powerful (see specs) and is a Dell. However, it is used to the extremes of its ability - regularly.

I would just like to ask you what the temperatures you would consider good, warm, and hot for both the GPU and CPU. I know the GPU can get quite hot, but I would please like to know how hot, so that I can learn.

I have a feeling that mine are quite hot. Most of the time I get:

CPU: 52 degrees Centigrade (C)
GPU: 128 C

These seem awfully hot. Putting my hand on the GPU plastic casing after use makes me think that these are not anomalous!

Thanks so much in advance!

Richard

EDIT: All of the fans have been confirmed as working, and it has good airflow all around, and always has had.

A:At what temperature does an average CPU and GPU become too hot?

Hello Richard, I am not really knowledgeable in this area & can only reflect on my own research so that i can monitor my own temps which basically indicates 70 degrees C and below in both cases as being comfortable temps.

In posts i have read concern is usually expressed in 80c+, your CPU looks fine mine runs at 50-65 & max 72c under heavy load. I use Core temp to monitor which also has overheat protection

http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

The tjmax is the CPU manufacturers max temp (assume critical) & safe temps to be 15c-20c below this.

As far as your GPU it looks extremely hot but i do not have a solution for you other than cleaning & extra cooling which i am sure you are already aware of. (my desktop has settings in the BIOS for the fan)

Here are my temps which are for a laptop;

Hi all I am using Excel and i am trying to work out how to do the following:
I am doing a Excell excersize for college (to be handed in when we return) and I have to use the 'PMT' function to calculate the monthly repayments of a loan in the spreadsheet - How is this done. MS Online does'nt seem to be very helpful :S

with my calculations () It has came up with -132 per month as payment which is obviously not right can anyone advise on the formula I shound be entering the spreadsheet states:

Loan amount 10,000
No. of Years 10
Annual interest rate 10%
Monthly repament = ?

The other problem with another spreadsheet i am having is I don't know how to get the average of something AND round it to the nearest whole number can anyone advise on how this would be done ?

Thanks

Hi!I have a VAIO AR670 running Vista Home edition on a T7800 Duo 2.6Ghz CPU, 4GB RAM, nVidia 8600M GT overclocked, ESET as main security, Defender as secondary, and various anti-spyware tools. In December I did a System Recovery because after "accidentally" Denying permissions for ALL users (including CPU) of my unpartitioned HD neither I or the CPU could run any programs from my hard disk. After hours of consultations with Sony Services and Microsoft, and being told that the only solution is to do a system restore from DVD (internal restore was blocked by permission denial) I finally managed to restore all permissions to myself and all users! Thus uncovering a MAJOR security flaw in VISTA which allows an unauthorized user to give himself and others ADMIN rights.....surprise....Anyway...just to be on the safe side I did a system backup and then a system restore from my DVD's and ever since then my RAM usage has been unusually high. Prior to restoring my average RAM usage was about 37% max, and around 25% when idle. Now it's around 63% max and 35% idle. I have the same software, programs etc installed as I did before. I can't figure this out... Another thing that happens is that during system ShutDown I get memory error codes and although the screen goes blank the computer doesn't fully shut down.Please advise!Here's my log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 4:23:59 PM, on 1/14/2009Platform: Windows Vista SP1 (WinNT 6.00.1905)MSIE: Int...

I have Sbc/yahoo 2wire dsl. It seems that my download times are slower than when I just had a single dsl modem. It downloads on my xp computer at like 80 kb/second. I don't really know all the specifics.

I do know it is a 2wire 1800 hg router/modem, it is connected by ethernet cable, and the monitor says that the connection speed is 1536 kbps incoming and like 386 outgoing.

I just wondered if I have something wrong, it used to download at li ke 160kbps or higher.

Thanks for your help all.

The title says it all. I have a MSI R4830 graphics card that runs fine with XP. Windows 7 runs good without the card (Dual boot system). Windows 7 seems to not like the graphics card and system interrupts in the resource monitor using up the processor. System interrupts manages the deferred proceedure calls and interupt service routines. There are some sites about eliminating recieve livelock in an interrupt-driven kernal http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc...10.1.1.36.6579
but these sites are a little technical for me. If there is anyone that can translate the tech talk to something more understandable I sure would like to hear from you!
One more bit of info- I did download the drivers at the top of this forum with no positive result.

windows vista 32bit OS (im capable of 64bit)

now i have a dell dimension e521 and i feel the processor is letting me down i do not have money to upgrade it and when i overclock it fails on me (because of dell) but.. look at these people's specifications (below)and the games they can play i don't understand why i cant play!! i clean my computers registry and that with Advanced System Care Pro

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yy_o0-0VJXg (ultra settings !? )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3q23I9M5Y-4 (medium to high!!?)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPC6huBdy74&feature=related (all maxed out)

What can i do to speed it up i can get new software and OS but i cant buy components (but you can still suggest some) i just really would like to be able to play games like battlefield 3 on medium settings, infact if i could play all games at a medium setting i would be soo gratefull

if you look on youtube there are people running nfs hot pursuit on max with the same specs as me or worse i just want to be able to do that please help

Im playing saints row 2
 

A:Average Specs LAG On Low End Games!?

The reason windows says you have 3.2GB of ram when you have 4GB is because you have the 32-bit Version of windows. Anything between 3 - 3.5GB it will cap on 32-Bit windows. The other RAM will not be used correctly.

Well registary cleaners are not good for any computer system and do more damage then good, they mess with windows files and needed registary files.

My computer specs in some ways are higher than yours like my i7 CPU then yours currently and I can only play battlefield 3 on Low setting and at 1280 x 768 resolution.

Make sure you have the latest grahpic card drivers installed. Check this website HERE search for a game you want to run and it will tell you if you can.

My computer runs on Windows XP, and a few years ago I installed Sims2. As it didn't work on my computer(a problem I blamed on the age of the disc), I just left the file there and forgot about it.

I just bought Sims 2 Double Deluxe and put it in my computer. It did not automatically show up, as most games do. In fact, when I checked the drive for the disc, it didn't even register.

I then remembered that Sims 2 is already installed. I figured that was the problem and went to uninstall it. However, add/remove programs did not work. I clicked on the Change/Remove button several times, but nothing happened.

I tried to delete each file seperately, but it said:

ERROR DELETING FILE FOLDER
Cannot delete control0.dat: Access is denied.

Make sure the disc is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

Why am I having these problems un/installing this game? How can I fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
