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.)

Hey all! I was looking to buy a "netbook" from HP around the first of the year, but I had one concern when it came to memory / OS compatibility. There are two options for OS:
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

There are also 3 different memory options:
1GB DDR3 System Memory
2GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)
3GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)

Now, if I were to select XP as my OS, the only option it lets me select is 1gb. If I were to select Windows 7, I'm able to select any of the 3 options. When having XP with 2 or 3 GB selected, it says:
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3 requires 1GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm). Update Memory or Operating system .

Not sure what's going on here. I think 1 Dimm just means it takes up 1 slot. But, why would I not be able to have XP and 2/3 GB? To my knowledge, HP isn't correct?

Just wondering, because I want to select XP with 3GB. I have Windows 7 professional through my work, so I don't want to drop $30 on an OS I won't use. I kinda want to upgrade the memory through HP because 1) they install it so it's on them, and 2) it's only $65 for 3gb. Pretty good price, I think

Does anybody know anything about this? To my knowledge I shouldn't have a problem having ANY of these memories with EITHER operating system, but according to their website, it has to be one or the other.

Thanks

Hi, I have a Nextpad device that comes with Windows 10 installed on it. I did not yet install any user application on it, and the File Explorer reports that it has about 16G out of a total 28G disk space available. Now Windows Update has found the Windows 10 Fall Update and will try to download and install it, but I stopped it because I worry about the disk space.

So my question is: is the 16G free space enough? I know that the Fall Update install will try to back up the original Windows 10 first, and that will take a lot of disk space (my guess here is that the 12G space used is all used by the system and will be backed up, and that only leaves me 4G left, which might not even be enough for downloading the Fall Update). Even though I would be able to remove the previous Windows after a successful installation of Fall Update, I worry the update will fail (and leave the device in an unusable state) during the installation due to insufficient disk space.

So what should I do? I know I can insert a MicroSD card to increase the storage capacity, but numerous articles have indicated that the presence of such card will cause the Fall Update to stall and fail.

Thanks very much for your help!

A:What is the Disk Space Requirement for Windows 10 Fall Update?

Rather then allowing windows update to download the upgrade to your HDD ( uses about 5GB of space)
Download the windows 10 ISO > http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench
Right-click the ISO and burn to a removable USB drive..
Delete the ISO file or copy it to another location other then your small HDD
Now you can run the upgrade from the usb drive by running setup.exe

besides having the setup files on your small HDD, you would also need room for the windows.old folder..
So having the files on usb helps with needed space..

I would say no.

The 12 volt rail on your psu is 62 amps.

One evga gtx780 ti requires 42 amps on the 12 volt rail.

Full load means the gpu is at maximum usage without overclock.

What are the min requirement to install win2k on a PC?
 

A:Win2K Requirement

These are the minimum system requirements that are listed on Microsoft's Website.
Your computer should meet the following hardware requirements: • 133 MHz or faster Pentium-compatible CPU
• 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM minimum; more memory generally improves responsiveness (4 gigabytes [GB] RAM maximum)
• 2 GB hard disk space with a minimum of 650 MB of free space (additional free hard disk space is required if you are installing over a network) Click to expand...

Can't say I would try and run Windows 2000 that way. I would go with a minimum of 256mb of ram. And it doesn't run to fast on a Pentium 133. I have Windows 2000 running on a Pentium II 400mhz with 192mb of ram. It runs most office applications just fine. I actually run Office 2003 on it.

Hi everybody,

For the last several days, I've been doing a lot of research about whether my power supply can support my graphics card, but I can't seem to find a definate answer. What I have is a 450 watt power supply; it has one single 12v rail that provides 24 amps. My graphics card is a ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E. It requires a 450 watt power supply and recommends 30 amps on the 12v rail.

When I asked whether my PSU can support my graphics card on other forums, some people tell me it can, but others tell me it can't, so I'm really confused right now. I had my X1950 hooked up and running for 3 days without having any problem, but I took it out today, just to be safe until I can get a definate answer. Although I do notice that my power supply runs cooler without the X1950 hooked up.

But on other forums, I even heard people run this card on a 18 amp 12v rail without any problem and they even have it running on a fully loaded system with 2x HDD, 2x DVD Drive, cooling system, fans and lights. And many people say that 22 amps should be the minimum to this card and 24 amps should be fine. However, there are also people who say that you should follow the manufacturers recommendation and get a minimum 30 amps power supply.

To give you a better idea of my system, here are the specs.
Pentium 4 HT 524 Prescott 3.06 GHZ (84 watt)
Motherboard: ATI RC410 ULI M1573

if this isnt good enough can anyone reccomend a good PSU that would also be good for future upgrades.

Thank you.
 

A:x1950 Pro PSU requirement

A short answer no. ATI says a min of 450W with at least 30amp on the 12V rail for that card. It looks like you are running a prescott cpu. If that is correct, then I would go with a min of 550W and 35amp on the 12V rail.

Do not go cheap on the pw supply. Doing so can [and often does] cause ALL types of problems.

Two things:
1. YOu dont want to load video onto the same drive that houses your applications--you want a seperate capture drive just for video.
2. Don't waste your time or money on the 10,000 rpm drive. It will make no difference in terms of quality or reliability when editing DV. Also, 36 gig's is nothing when it comes to video. Get yourself a large 7200rpm 8mbcache drive--they are cheap these days.

A:How to get around space requirement on SP install?

Actually you could move some files and folders to another place to free up hard drive space. If you don't have a spare hard drive you can use DVD/CD, thumb drive, or an external drive.

Other than that, no you can't get around the space requirements. I would also say that if you're that low on space, perhaps it's time to upgrade to a bigger hard drive.

Hi all,

Okay so I want to run the Sims 3 on my HP Pavilion dm3-1021tx Entertainment Notebook PC and I'm not sure if my comp can handle it. I tried the 'can you run it' website and it narrowly misses the minimum requirements based on CPU.

Here are my laptops specifications: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/nz/en/ho/WF06b/321957-321957-3329744-64354-64354-4011360-4044755.html

And these are the Sims 3 requirements:
http://www.thesims3.com/game/systemreq

Now the reason I don't fully trust the can you run it website is because my laptop has a dual processor and I heard that means the 1.3GHz actually doubles or something? I don't know, that could be really wrong..

So will the Sims 3 will be basically unplayable on my system or should it be fine?

I am assisting my friend who had Vista on a computer and his sod bought him a Dell with Windows 8:
1- I am unable to remove password from sign-on. There appears to be no instruction as in Win 7/Vista.
2- Picture icons when transferred show only a general icon not an icon of the pictures as in Vista.
3- My friend accidentally removed the icon for the Instructions/ for Win 8 on the Start Menu. I cannot find the file for us to revie.
4- When I try to Create a Password Reset disk, the program asks for a password reset disk disk and password to be installed? Huh.
I am not a novice. Using computers since the Apple II

My parents' video card is not cutting it. Since I am not going to change the power supply (it's technically not my computer), so I am trying to work with Sony's Generic 300Watt (18A on 2 +12V Rails). I see that on the 7600GS, it has a power requirement of 300Watts. I was just wondering if it is wise to purchase a card that requires the amound of power I have. Thanks for any feedback :wave: ! Happy holidays!
 

A:Power Requirement for 7600GS?

It'll depend on how much other hardware is in that system, but there is a good chance it will work. No way to be certain until you pop it in, but my guess is, you'll be good.

I'm trying to figure out how many amps at 12v the system I'm building will require, since it seems like the true limit of basically any PSU is the amount of power is supplies on 12v rails. I have a PSU that supplies 17A at 12v and I'm hoping that will be enough. The system is pretty basic:

ASUS M3N78-EM mobo with NVIDIA GeForce 8300 onboard video
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8GHz 65W processor
1 SATA HD
1 SATA DVD-ROM drive
May add one or two IDE or SATA HDs and a TV tuner card down the road

I'm having trouble finding data on how much these devices will draw from the 12v specifically. The CPU isn't hard, since it draws all its power at 12v: 65W/12v = 5.4A. Let's say 6.5A with imperfect efficiency, though I have no idea at what efficiency I should expect the CPU to operate. But what about the rest? In particular, I expect the onboard video to draw significant power at 12v, but I can't find how much.

Can anyone help? And can anyone suggest a resource for finding this kind of information in the future? When I find power usage information at all, it's usually simply listed in watts, without specifying which rail it's drawn from.

I did find the following two links in thread:

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
http://web.aanet.com.au/SnooP/psucalc.php

Both seem pretty useful (if a little out of date), but neither site seems to have good information on onboard video.
 

A:Please help me calculate power requirement

The onboard graphics doesn't draw significant amounts of power. You could say 1-2 A on the 12 V rail. It's quite a lot less than what a better discrete graphics card, let's say Radeon 4350 would draw.
What's the actual model of your power supply? If it's a "Ultra value 500w power supply" then even the underpowered 17 A @ 12V isn't most probably true, rather it's measured as a top peak output at unrealistic circumstances, for example a lot lower ambient temp than what it normally operates at.

If a drive is encrypted with BitLocker and you choose to not require any form of pre-boot authentication the system will simply boot and unlock when you login.

If you encrypt a computer with BitLocker and chose to set a PIN, is there any way to later retract the pre-boot PIN requirement and revert back to the scenario above without first decrypting and re-encrypting?
I've looked at the various options via manage-bde and tested a few such as:
manage-bde -protectors -delete C: -Type TPMAndPIN
Unfortunately this simply removed the simple PIN and instead requires the recovery key. Using the same command to delete the recovery key breaks the system.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:Remove BitLocker PIN Requirement

Apologies for replying to an old-ish question but I believe I have a solution.
Assuming any group policy changes relating to BitLocker PINs have been reset,  enter the command
manage-bde -protectors -add C: -tpm. This will reconfigure BitLocker into using just the TPM and delete the PIN as well.
If you run manage-bde -status and look under Key Protectors you should see Numerical Password (ie the recovery key) and either TPM on a system that does not use a PIN, or TPM And PIN on a system that does. If you try to remove the PIN by just removing the
TPM and PIN key protector the only means of unlocking the drive available is Numerical Password, causing you to be prompted for the recovery key at every boot. You have to specifically tell BitLocker to use just the TPM instead, it wont automatically default
to this setting.

Did you somehow set the router address as your home page ?

At what stage do you get the prompt?

I've read this before and it worked, but can't seem to find it now. I have multiple users on my computer and one of the new users is asking for a password even though I've never set one. I've seen instructions to go into the programs and reset the value to 0 to change it so no passwords are required. I've tried all other ways - through setting user profiles, cmd: change userpasswords2, etc - but none of those work. I don't want passwords to be required for users. How do I reset this in the system? It required going into My Computer, Programs, etc. but I can't remember from there. HELP!
