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.)


Hello forums, I captured 21 videos of different games and benchmarks of my ThinkPad X220 in order to help people who are interested to find out how much graphical performance the X220 has and if you can do light gaming with it and uploaded them to my YouTube channel. Have a look here. Ii hope they are helpful to make a decision for buying a used X220 :-) Best regards, Janni

Q: Pascal

Hi guys,
I've got a slight problem with a program, I have written all the
values in etc etc, but now they want the max, min and average values to be
displayed. I've doen the average - yeah thats right thats the easy bit ,
do any of you have any idea how to make pascal write the max and min numbers
entered ?

I thought it might be something like

WRITE show ++(min)

But thats just one massive guess....

Thanks in advance for any help.



your going to have to explain a little more how the program works, show some code, that's the only way we can help

Yes it's possible. I am not too familiar with pascal syntax though.

If you wanted to do add or change things the simple way, you would make the program create a reg file in a temp directory, and execute it and the info would be merged into the registry.

Deleting things may involve more.

Wow, they still teach Pascal. I thought that was dead and buried at least 5 years ago. Last time I even touched it was in 1996. I guess it is good for teaching the basics. I see they haven't gotten into Input Error Checking yet or Procedures and functions. How I loved using Case statements in Pascal.

I will take a look at this weekend if I have time. Like I said. I haven't touched it in 10 years but I still have all my notes and books from those classes. Will have to bring back some brain cells from the dead.

Hi guys, well pleased to say I got over my last prooblem without having to trouble any of you but I'm having some problems with this one, it's a validation check, where it should display an error which I've set if anything except 0 - 9 is entered as a character and any number over 6 is entered. This is what I've got so far, some of it's not right as it is but what I need help on is figuring how to put an array in so that it can read in EACH count and check it if your following me, the digit in the varibles triggered me to putting in an array as I suddenly figured that it can't be declared as a integer because it's not one set number it's a string of no more than 6 numbers.

i have written the following program

if (answer = 1) then

sum := (((750.44-(0.013717*alt))/60)*((dis/5)-((alt/1000)*2)))+(((750.44-(0.013717*(alt/2)))/60)*((alt/1000)*1.4))+(((750.44-(0.013717*(alt/2)))/60)*((alt/1000)*0.9));
writeln ('the total fuel consumption for this flight is, sum :4:2 , kgs')
writeln ('enter distance of flight');
readln (dis);

This is as far as i've got with my program. i now need the program to work out the optimum cruising level for the distance entered. i know i will have to use a for loop or while do command but don't know how they work properly.
i need to let the end user enter the distance they want to travel and then for the program to test the fuel consumption for each height upto 30,000ft for that distance and then display the best result (the one that uses the least amount of fuel).
The range is between 0 - 30,000ft in intervals of 1,000.

if you could let me know how to finsh this program or how to improve it i would be grateful.

NVIDIA have announced details for their latest, most powerful graphics card for the consumer market, the TITAN X. With a price-tag of $1,200, it will surely only interest those with enough cash, and patience who held out for the card after the recent release of the GeForce GTX 1080.

The new enthusiast-level Pascal card replaces last year's similarly, and now confusingly, named GeForce GTX TITAN X. The new card has a shorter and simpler name, the NVIDIA TITAN X.

Under its shell, the TITAN X contains 3,584 CUDA cores running at 1.53GHz. This compares to 3,072 cores at 1.08GHz in the previous TITAN card. NVIDIA argues the new card performs 60% faster than its predecessor.

Here are the specs for the TITAN X:

NVIDIA CUDA? Cores - 3584Base Clock/Boost Clock (MHz) - 1417/153112 GB of GDDR5X memory (480 GB/s) (384-bit)

Hello the forum.

I am experiencing difficulty in running turbo pascal on vista home premium. Vista does not support full screen mode and defaults to a small window 80 x 30 where psacal runs ok. The small window is the problem. I have tried a virtual machine emulating xp (full screen mode is supported by XP) which simply defaults to the same tiny window at the center of screen. If it is executed through the cmd window in vista (the cmd window size can be changed like most other windows as you will know) it defaults out of the cmd window into the same tiny default window. If one right clicks on the top bar of the small window a window appears which opens up the properties and defaults windows where the small window size can be apparently altered but this has no effect on the window size. DosBox nearly got there but the ctrl-Pause did not work. Since I am in need of coke bottle bottom glasses, size is everything and therefore, without reverting back to the XP operating system, can anyone suggest how this small window can conqured and forced into the submissive form of a large window! Some panorama please! Would an upgrade to a vista business or some other vista be of use?

Mates,For those shopping for a powerful workstation card, the Pascal-based Quadros- P5000 (16GB)($2,500) and P6000 (24GB, $5,000) GPUs will shortly be joined by the P4000 (8GB). This appears to be an important  step from the M4000 performance (8GB).Release is said to be "Q4 2016". If true, this must be quite soon as Q4 2106 only has a couple of weeks left.I've added what information is available- there are a couple of gaps- to the Wikipedia Quadro article.>and here is the NVIDIA notice about the P4000.The GPU is the GP104GL, shared with the Quadro P5000. The P6000 uses the GP102GL, which is used in the GTX 1080Ti. The GTX1070 uses GP104-200 and GTX1080 uses GP104-400, having 2048 CUDA core, the P4000 is sort of in between GTX 1070 (1920 CUDA) and 1080 (2560) CUDA cores. Core clock 1544. Memory clock is listed as 1901 whereas the P5000 is 1607 and P6000 as 1417. Power use is not quoted, but I'm guessing 130-150W. The P5000 uses 180W and the P6000, 250W.The P4000 has not been benchmarked as far as I can find, but the Quadro M4000 is rated at 192 GB/s and it appears to perform above the Quadro M5000 (8GB) as the P4000's memory bandwidth is 243.3 GB/s to the M5000's 211GB/s.No price has been mentioned, but given the sequence of Quadro 4000 to K4000 to K4200 to M4000- perhaps somewhere $900 to$1,100 - but that is strictly a guess.As the M4000 costs about $800 and the performance will better the ~$1,800 M5000, the P4000, similar to the recent Pascal GTX's, is likely to be a...

I am about to configure P72, and I don't know which GPU I should go. I searched everywhere, and I canot find datasheets of mobile GPUs (yeah thank you nVidia to have the same product names for mobile and desktop cards). None of my work is GPU accelerated. I am using 3 FHD 10 bit external displays via docking (EIZO CG range) which should work... But is there any functional differences between lets say P600 and P2000? Less monitors, 8 vs 10 bit outputs, nView, or anything? Or is it only about brute force power? I am always having only discrete graphics enabled and I am turning CPU-GPU off in BIOS. Other thing I can think of is power consumption, of course less is better, but I cannot find this info on these two cards. I also don't game. Basically I think P600 should be enough, but I am afraid it will be crippled somehow or cannot do 3xFHD @ 60 fps at 10 bit at ease. Thanks

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 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!

How do I go about improving a CIS score? I'm confused about the benchmarks. Is this just a list of recommended settings?

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.

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.

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?

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

A:Where's my graphics on benchmarks?

your card performs below all those cards on high resolution and high settings. And a little better than the 9500 gt on low to med.

Hi everybody.
this is my first post on TechSpot...
and I`d like to ask a question(or two or three):what about the x1950pro AGP?
anybody seen it work?
will it really be coming?
Have I spent 200.-? on the wrong card?([email protected])

A:x1950pro AGP!anyone seen any benchmarks?

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.
