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.)

Funny thing, we were just discussing this in the Socket 478 thread in the cpu/chipset forum.

I don't believe there is any hard data on this and it's likely just a rumor right now. Similar rumors occurred when Diamond made a typo on their website and listed an X1800 as AGP when it was a cut/paste job overlooked from an X800 HTML page they modified for the X1800.

I'd imagine hkpc or Tom's/Anannd's will get some solid info should there actually be any hint of an AGP based X1950. For now, it looks like the X1650 series will get the best chance of an AGP flavor.. but the X1950 is still only "rumor" material as I know of no local oem's with even so much as a future SKU or partner hint for the units.

It was released today, uses less power than X1900XT, and performs on about equal level. Crossfire on the GPU die and now uses an internal SLI-Like connector, this is the ATI version, that is why the price is so high, it will cost around 200$ when the other brands come out with it, without further ado- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814195029

Hello there.
As a foolish act I've overclocked my ati x1950pro video card in the recent times. I used a software called Ati Aray Tools to detect how much boost I can give to it. It worked fine for a while, (about a week or so,) but yesterday, while I was playing Warcraft3, the screen suddenly went black, and although I've been able to hear the music that winamp played, my pc didn't respond to any key-combinations, so I restarted it. Some time later the same thing occured, about 10-15 minutes after I started S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky, this time without any overclocking.
Since then I can't even start Stalker, as at the moment the main menu appears, the screen goes black again. Warcraft3 howerver did let me play for about 10 minutes before doing so. Now it stops at the main menu as well.
I've tried to reinstall the drivers using Driver Cleaner Pro, but it didn't do any good. In fact these blackouts have become much more recent, and sometimes I can't even start windows because of them.
Everytime it happens, the fan of the video card stars to whirl madly at about 100% speed, but I've checked it, and the card doesn't appear have any burnt smell even after letting it whirl for a prolonged time, and it's just lukewarm when I touch it.
For some time I thought that it might be a hardware issue, but after checking with RivaTuner, it became clear, that the video card doesn't gets hot at all. It has an idle temperature of 47... Read more

Hello, first post here. This problem is bugging the hell out of me - it's brought to the edge - so i thought i'd give you lot a try with it, thanks.

Spec: AMD 64 X2 4200+, 1GB RAM, X1950Pro, XP Home

I re-formatted about a fortnight ago and bought a new X1950Pro to replace my 6800GS, just to tide me over until i get a new system come Christmas; if the missus lets me. ¬_¬
But it just seems to be crawling, in games. It's just really not performing as it should. The one's i've tried would be GRAW, and FEAR. I bought them so i could play them with my new card, but i'm getting an appalling framerate in both, it chugs. I'd say it's about 20-25 average but it can go below that; both games are unplayable.

Both are patched up to date.

I have all recent drivers installed and the AMD and Windows Dual-Core optimizer.

I mean, should i be worried? I really don't know what's going on, or what to do. Do i try a DeFrag, because i've installed a few programs over a short space of time, or wouldn't it matter?

I've checked for Spyware and Viruses, too. So it can't be that.

The only thing that i CAN think of is my DVD Firmware, because both run off a disc, and that could be out of date, and as i played COD2 tonight with no problems, then just maybe.

I'd like to give it a try, just so i could lay that factor to rest but i don't know how to do it;

Hi all.

I have recently upgraded my PC to a am2 socket motherboard, Athlon 64 4000, 2gb dual channel ram and a Radeon x1950pro graphics card.

The games i play mostly are Counterstrike Source and Warhammer Dawn of War.


My X850XT PE was causing me some problems. It seemed to lag in games (3 or 4 short pauses per second constantly) and when i alt+tabbed into windows, it acted as if I had just installed windows but forgotten the video drivers - the windows were heavy and screen updates were slow meaning scrolling down a webpage while alt_tabbed out of a game is very slow.

Now I have changed to a X1950pro and i still have the slow desktop when i alt_tab out during a game.

My friend also commented that Dawn of war (plays better on nvidia according to the splash screen during startup) looked alot better on his nvidia 6600gt anyway, nothing to do with frame rate but just generally looks better with nicer colors and blending. This is with mine at 16xAF and 6xAA.


So...

This leads me to wonder... When did the Radeon desktop stuff get bad and if anyone has a driver that works well in desktop while games are running, i would like to know. Im using the latest omega driver but the newest ati official one gave me corruption in windows (missing icons, webpages not showing correctly etc).

Could any of this be linked to a power supply issue> I have bought a 450w power supply recently but would that make windows performance drop like that?

Hey guys,

This is really bugging me. I installed my new Sapphire X1950Pro AGP card about, say, a month ago, and played almost through all of Bioshock, and tested it on other games like SWG and City of Heroes, just since I had those games lying around with free game-time, so I wanted to see just how well it'd run them (out of curiosity, mainly).

Firstly, here are my specs:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ processor
2GB DDR2 RAM
Sapphire Radeon X1950pro AGP 512MB
Sansun 550W Arctic PSU

Now, the PSU specs:

+3.3V 30A
+5V 36A
+12V1 20A
+12V2 18A
-12V 0.8A
+5VSB 2.5A

It all went fine up until about a week ago...I was playing Bioshock when suddenly artifacts appeared all over the screen and it froze up for a moment, only to return to normal, with a VGA Recovery box popping up outside of the game, which, however, was still running fine. It told me the usual, that the device had stopped responding to driver commands, but I thought nothing of it.

A few days later, I was playing SWG and the game froze up, completely, artifacts all over the screen, looping sound, and I had to reboot.

Now, the requirements for the card state that it needs a 450W PSU (covered ) with 30A on the +12V rail. If I have two +12V rails, does that mean the sum of both will be the final value for the amps? I.e. I would have 38A on the 12V rail if this was the case, and thus, the PSU could be ruled out as the problem.

Also, I seriously doubt that heat is a problem, since the crashing started to happen within sho... Read more

I'd go with the X1950Pro, instead of a DX10 card. DX10 games will be far a few between for quite awhile more, and if game makers are serious about making money, they would put in DX9 support for quite awhile too. By which time, your graphics card should be upgraded anyway.

Unless you're talking about the 8800s of course, anything else at this very date of post is pretty crap IMO.

I just built a new computer with this video card, and whenever I play Oblivion(on almost highest settings), every now and then it just crashes. At first, it would work very well for 15-30min before an error message pops up saying that the "VPU had stopped responding and had been reset...etc"(paraphrase).

Generally, after that I'd be able to alt-tab back to Oblivion, and continue playing, without any trouble, until it happens again, 15-30 minutes later.

After doing some research on google, I've found that other people have solved this problem by downloading ATT(ATI Tray Tools), and manually setting the fan speed to 100% and displaying frame rate/VPU temp. Before changing the fan settings, I noticed that it would crash around 55-60C. After maximizing fan speed, instead of resetting every 15-30 minutes, instead, after about an hour or so of play, the VPU would simply crash altogether, without resetting(VPU recovery is still on). Basically, my screen would go black, the monitor button light would go yellow(instead of green), and while I could still move around and hear footsteps as I move around, nothing would show on the monitor(I take this to mean that the video card has crashed). At this point, I have to restart the computer.

Any suggestions?

I had roughly the same problem with my X1950Pro, except that I never got the warning message.

Just goes black.
But I half expected that, from removing the stock cooler and putting in an aftermarket one. The I/O chip (or at least I think it is the I/O chip) was overheating, and its a common problem for people using aftermarket cooling on these cards.

I fixed the problem by cable tying a spare NB heatsink to it.

If you're using the cooler that came with the chip, you might need to RMA.

I just got a new laptop and was wondering what kinds of benchmarks would be good to make sure it performs as well as it should. I'd like to know how to compare it to similarly configured laptops in games and multimedia applications.

Also, is there a way for me to see the make of RAM I have. I know how to find out the amount, but it never says the manufacturer.
 

A:Benchmarks

A quick search for laptop benchmark came up with this CNet page. It shows how they benchmark their laptops, and what programs they use to do it. Worth giving a quick read, at least.

To find out the make of your ram, you can run CPU-Z. It's free, you can download it by clicking the link under 'latest version' in the top left corner of that page. When you run it, click the SPD tab, and it will show vendor information, if it's possible to show it for your system. Some RAM manufacturers don't show, I think. Otherwise, you could just open your memory access panel on your laptop, and take the sticks out (while the laptop is off, of course), there should be a sticker or model number or something on them. Put the number into Google and see what comes up. Good luck!

A:Belarc: CIS Benchmarks?

You'd need to change the settings that are shown as failing. They give a description of each, but don't mention where to change them though.
Many are set using the Local Security Policy tool, or the Group Policy Editor. Neither of which comes with XP Home. You can edit the registry directly to change settings though.

This link lists many of the registry keys that have to be edited directly, and lists the recommended settings.
For XP Home, the Group Policy Settings Reference spreadsheet can be searched for a specific setting to find the key to set in XP Home.

To set File permissions, you need to turn off simple file sharing (Control Panel | Folder Options | View, uncheck Use simple file sharing, last item). For XP Home, you'll need to reboot to safe mode to see the security tab, or download the two reg files from this post of Elvandil's. Be sure to run the undo reg file when done.

These are just recommendations, and are geared more for a business environment rather than a home environment. The Auditing settings for example, forcing users to change passwords, only allowing strong passwords, minimum length, etc, might not be useful at home.

My score has never been higher than 1.88.

Hi everyone.
I`m out here hoping anyone could help me with my problem..
So. My R9 280X one day stopped working properly. It allows to launch the PC and use it. But when i launch any game it works until any 3D action happens. Couple of times i`ve launched GAUNTLET and saw a lot of ARTIFACTS in menu, whcih closes and exits to a desktop.
This happens with every game. It just laggs for a second or two (sound plays tho) And exits to Desk without any information.
Also All the GPU benchmarks Freeze after a few secs of work (sometimes whole PC so i have to restart it). I`ve noticed no exact GPU load or temperature numbers (it stays below 50-55).
But one benchmark (userbenchmark.com) managed to go through and showed extremely poor GPU results of ~10%(way below normal in 3D).
Also when i surf around on my pc quickly(swapping between windows and scrolling intensly) image freezes, turns black for a milisecond and goes back to normal condition as `twas. huh..
I`ve peeked into logs and it says AMDKMDAP stopped responding, which means drivers. (also there are some "kernel" errors if that mean anything..)
I used DDU and installed all kind of drivers which didnt help too. I reinstalled windows even.
Also radeon software shows a notification that it detected more than one displays connected while i`m using one.
I`ve swapped between VGA and HDMI. (before all these happened methinks i used both at the same time once, but i dont think its related.
MemTest didnt show anything to... Read more

Dishonored 2 has this pre-order thing that allows you to play a day early, and so guru3d (and maybe a few more outlets, we'll see) benched it.
Quality settings

The benchmark is done on
the eight-core Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme Edition with Haswell-E based setup on the X99 chipset platform. This setup is running tweaked at 4.30 GHz. Next to that we have energy saving functions disabled for this motherboard and processor (to ensure consistent benchmark results). We use Windows 10 all patched up. Each card runs on the same PC with the same operating system clone.The drivers are:
GeForce cards use the latest 375.76 driver (download drivers).Radeon graphics cards we used the latest AMD Radeon Crimson 16.11.3 Driver (download drivers).

I just upgraded due to a PIII 450MHZ chip ceasing to function. I went to a PIII 650E chip on the Gigabyte GA-6VXE+ motherboard. I had the same motherboard with the PIII 450 and it was working fine for about a year, and that upgrade was from a micro-ATX motherboard for more slots and higher max on the CPU upgrade. When I took the computer in to have it checked for not booting they originally thought it was the motherboard and replaced it with a new one, but later found that it was the processor. So the Gigabyte GA-6VXE+ motherboard and the PIII 650E chip are new. I had just re-formatted the hard drive for a fresh start and installed the normal programs and Norton Utilities 2000. Under the Norton UT 2000 system benchmarks my PIII 650 was getting fluctuating benchmarks from anywhere between 50.0 to 301.0. The computer's performance also coincided with whatever system benchmark that came up running slow with low system benchmarks and normal with the high benchmarks. I thought at first it may be the voltage supplied to the CPU but the motherboard is auto detecting voltage. I feel that I'm heading down the same road as my previous processor, and while everything is still under warranty, I want this taken care of as soon as possible. Can you help?

Curious about the relative performance of two of my computers, I have made the comparison using benchmark software I have on hand. Fresh Diagnose is the latest release, 5.80.

Here are the results:

Computer #1
Intel Celeron 500 MHZ
ASUS Motherboard
Ext. Clock 66 MHz

Fresh Diagnose Benchmark:
412 MWIPS
1538 MDIPS
Speed 501

Callmark BM System test:
2618
--------------

Computer #1
VIA Cyrex 667 MHz
Soyo SY-7ISA+ Motherboard
Ext. Clock 133 MHz

Fresh Diagnose Benchmark:

15 MWIPS
816 MDIPS
Speed 669

Callmark BM System test:
1728
------------------
Assuming these benchmarks are valid tests of system performance, is there something I can to improve the performance on the SY-7ISA+ system (Computer #2)?

I've set jumpers for the automatic detection of processor speed. What is the correct PCI clock setting and clock ratio for this processor? I'm using 133Mhz X5.

Does a Celeron processor provide improved performance over a similar speed VIA Cyrex?

Is there a better benchmark test for these systems? I believe Computer #2 should outperform Computer #1, but maybe I'm missing something.

I have seen postings about computers being slow. Are there any benchmarks that one can use to see if the computer is running as well as expected, given the RAM and the processor speed? Many thanks.
 

A:Speed benchmarks?

When people say there computer is running slow, they normally mean its running 'slower' than it used to and want to know why. This is normally down to spyware, background processes, fragged harddrive plus any number of things.

As for benchmarking, there are many types Dhrystone, Whetstone, PCMark, plus ones for graphics cards (3D mark), look at the following sites www.futuremark.com and www.sisoftware.net.

However be aware that whole subject of benchmarking is a bit more subjective, the same cpu on a different motherboard will give different benchmarks even though the cpu is clocked the same. So just because your setup doesnt give exactly the same as someone with 'apparently' the same setup, its not worth trying to track down why (all very clever electronic magic)! Oh and benchmarks do not always represent a true real-life performance.

A couple of weeks ago I tried unsuccessfully to install Visual Studio 6 on my XP Home SP2 box. Since then, the performance has been poor. One thing probably has nothing to do with the other but that's when I started to notice that Firefox took 10 to 15 seconds to load and the XP splash screen stayed up longer on a reboot. I've defragmented and run and error check on the hard drive and it has no bad sectors. This evening I downloaded FreshDiagnose and benchmarked the read and write speeds of the hard drive. The read speed is excellent -- over 200 MB/s but the write speed is pathetic -- 3.47 MB/s. This is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320 GB SATA-II drive (the parallel recording technology.)

The CD benchmarks are pretty low too. I have a Memorex 16X DL DVD+-RW but the read speed is 3.67 MB/s.

These are all connected to Gigabyte 965SP motherboard having a Pentium D 3.4 gHz processor. Not overclocked and the temps and fan speeds are within normal ranges.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Dear frens, my request is a bit long but please dont get bored reading it. Any suggestions will be most welcome. I will acknowledge my results.

My system specs are on the bottom of this page.

1) what is th difference between the nforce4 AMD platform driver and the other AMD/INTEL X16 driver?

2)My A64 3500+ (manchester) 2.2 GHZ is OCed to 2.5 GHZ thru the bios and clockgen . Do i need 2 adjust any voltage, FSB etc etc settings? (am noob in OCing !!)

3) what GPU and CPU tempetature is ok for BFG 7800GT OC (OCed to 500/1150) Is it too high? Should i go to 450/1100? Please look in my system specs for hardware info.

4?is it ok to put my case (with the right panel removed ie motherboad backsite) directly on the airflow of my Room airconditioner (16 degree C) or am i harming my rig withj iths type of cooling??

5) when i run CPU benchmarks during 3dmark05 pro and 3Dmark06 pro
my rig crawls at only 0,1,2 fps. is it normal?

6) N just 1 more thing i ve posted my benchmarks below. what do u think of the results? Normal? High? or Low?
do post ur benchmarks also. i would love to see them !!

And ive got US $200 to spend! what upgrades do u recommend 4 my rig??

I was looking at this article that was comparing benchmarks of low-end processors. Generally they looked at Celeron, P4, Duron, and Athlon processors on the Anandtech website:

http://www.anandtech.com/cpu/showdoc.html?i=1927&p=12

This test showed that the 1.6Gig Duron Processor and the P4 1.8A Gig Processor both out performed the Intel Celeron Processors. They only tested the one P4 Processor, and it was the cheapest one available on the market. I think a slower P4 processor would actually be a better buy, but Intel just does not make them. They would be a better buy than the Celeron's Available.

The Bottom line is a Celeron is not worth buying. They are basically junk. I think a 256k L2 Cache would significantly improve their performance. The present 128k L2 cache is just not large enough for the processor speed. So Buyer beware.
 

A:CELERON AMD P4 CPU Benchmarks

The 300a Celeron was the only worthwhile Celeron chip. It could OC to 450 & wasn't as crippled as the new versions have been ( slow FSB, small & crippled Cache, overall lackluster performance ).

For people that only use the PC for Office work, I guess it's not so bad. They don't heat much so they generally have very silent cooling systems.

Other then that, I don't see why anyone would want such a chip.
