Preferred Solution: Is this CPU compatible? How do you tell?

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: Is this CPU compatible? How do you tell?

You will have to try and find out the socket number for the motherboard in it. You can use a program called CPUZ I think which is free to download. I think this is the way to go at this any one back me up?

I've decided to try my hand at building my own PC. I intend it to be a medium - high end gaming computer. I've got everything figured out (at least I hope) I'm just wanting a second opinion about my choice of motherboard and CPU. I'm pretty sure they are compatible, at least in theory, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them, or any advice for me. Hey, if you feel like it, recommend something bigger and better. I have a pretty good budget for this (within reason of course, nothing too outrageous).

CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, with Fan (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4016668&CatId=3496)

Motherboard : FX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3930721&CatId=13)

One big question I have, however, is whether a GeForce 8800GT graphics card with its super long design would fit correctly or at all in that motherboard. The 2nd PCI-E slot has to be the first one used, so I couldn't put it in the top slot. I think it would fit, but not quite sure.

Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to have a read through this, and an extra thanks to anyone with any advice or comments.
 

A:Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

why can u not use the first slot? the only problem should be with the case. put the mem. in before u put the video card in.

Hi, I just upgraded my computer with a new OCZ 120GB SSD.
I wanted to connect my original HDD, two 500GB WD 7200rpm.
However, when I connect all three hard drives on my mobo, SSD does not appear on bios.
If I connect just the SSD, it shows up, and if I connect just HDD, it shows up as well.
However, I cannot find SSD from boot up priority menu if HDD is also connected.
There are only three choices: HDD, DVD Drive, and Floppy disk... which I do not have.
Is there a problem with compatibility? Or did I do anything wrong?
I didnt mess with any RAID or anything (I dont even know how to.)
Please help! Thank you

A:SSD and HDD not compatible?

You have to be sure that your BIOS sees the drives. If BIOS can't see them, Windows won't see them either.

Once that is done, make sure all your cables are securely attached.
That might seem obvious, but i messed with my brother's computer for nearly half an hour before checking the cables.
Doh! The data cable was uselessly dangling in there.
Amazingly, it worked fine once I hooked it up- ha!

Hey Everyone

I am going to buy this latop from newegg.com http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215663

(It is a link to the laptop on newegg. It is an Acer Aspire V3-551G-8454 Notebook.)

I want to put in 4GB more of RAM so it has a total of eight, however I'm afraid I will buy RAM that isn't compatible with it. I would like to purchase the additonal RAM from newegg.com as well.

Could someone please help it would be greatly appreciated!

Edit: I have found a 4GB RAM stick that I believe is compatible however can anyone confirm this?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139355

Thanks!
 

A:Compatible RAM? Help please!

That laptop is listed as having 4 GB of RAM, but it doesn't indicate if it has a 1 - 4 GB module or 2 - 2 GB modules.

You also don't know what DDR3 speed the module(s) in that laptop is.

You should wait until the laptop arrives so you can confirm both of the above.

According to the CRUCIAL site for that laptop, the recommended 8 GB(4 GB X 2) matching modules is:

204-pin DDR3 PC3-12800(DDR3-1600), 1.35 volt, CL=11, unbuffered, non-ECC

The 4 GB module that you selected is a slower speed DDR3 PC3-8500(DDR3-1066).

Hi,
I am looking to get another 512 MB of ram. I currently have 2 256 MB sticks in my motherboard now. They are DDR PC2700 333MHz. I'm wondering if I have to match the new stick exactly? Do I have to get DDR PC2700 333MHz or can I go with DDR PC3200 400MHz? My motherboard is model is MSI MS-6570.

Thanks
 

A:Compatible Ram

Most (not all) computers will let you mix and match RAM of different speeds - however the faster RAM will only run at the speed of the slower RAM - so if you get 400mhz and have 333mhz also in the computer, it will all run at 333mhz.

It is compatible, but the ease in setting it up will depend on how Frys setup the existing system. Why don't you just ask them. They should have no problem in telling you what you want to know. They may think you are going to buy the drive at Frys... no need to tell them, unless they ask.

A:Are these compatible?

Here is the support page for that mb;
http://us.msi.com/product/mb/FM2-A85XA-G65.html#/?div=Overview
As you can see the cpu you selected is listed as supported.

The board has 2 pci-e slots so yes you can run those cards.

Yes you need new ram.

FWIW, you are spending money on a new cpu, mb, and ram yet you want to use video cards that are going on 7yrs old. The 8800 was released in late 06 so it is getting very long in the tooth now. Seven years is more than a lifetime in the tech world.

A:MSE not compatible

MSE stopped with Win 7 and has been replaced with built in Windows Defender on Win 8. 3rd party anti virus all have pros and cons and are a matter of choice whether to install them or not. Often they will react differently on different computers.

I personally use only WD and Malwarebytes Pro only. They have served me well and have had no problems. There are many posts in this forum showing the benefits of one or the other. As always, use common sense when visiting unknown sites and don't open unsolicited email attachments.

You can find all the info about it from this website https://us.msi.com/Graphics-card/N750-Ti-2GD5OC.html#hero-overview. Problem:When i put the graphics card in and booted the computer up, it got stuck on the boot up screen saying "Press ESC key for startup menu" however no matter what i pressed nothing happened, and then after around a minute or two, it proceeded into a black screen sort of like a CMD but in fullscreen, and nothing happens after that.I have done lots of googling and tried different methods to get the GPU to work, such as taking cmos batter off and putting it back in, buying a new power supply, disabling the integrated graphics, messing with the rams, updating bios from 7.13 to 7.16 and possibly more that i forgot about.

Well I got a Seagate 160GB Barracuda ATA HD. Here's direct link . I have an HP a330n PC. Here's direct link to the Mobo.

The reason I have this question is because on the box it says PATA/100 .. My other drives are SATA I think... I don't know... which is why im asking lol... Thanks

A:Is All This Compatible??

Hello!
So i want to build a new computer from (almost) scratch, these are the parts i want to put in:
AMD A6-7400K

asus H61M - K

Crucial 4GB DIMM DDR3 1600MHz, PC3-12800 240-Pin, CL11, 1.5V, NON-ECC, 512 Meg x 64

CX430

R7 240

I'm getting these parts from this video:

but i'm changing some of the parts, because (for example) i don't think i need 8gb of ram to play games.

So the questions i have are:
1- Is everything compatible?
2- Does it really matter if i switch the Asus A78M-E for the Asus H61M - K?
3- Is my power supply (CX430) enough for this build? if so, what kind of power supply do i need? because they are very confusing to me.
4- Can i use my hard drive that i use at the moment with a lot of data (it's not old, and doesn't have any defects) or should i use a completely new hard drive (it's kind of the same, but never used) Thanks.
 

A:Is this compatible?

Hey mate,

The motherboard (H61M-K) will not be compatible with the CPU (AMD A6-7400K). I think it might be better if you give us some information on what games you are wanting to play because the parts and budget you are looking at is going to have some big limitations. On average for playing recent/new games these days I'd recommend 8GB of RAM, Quad Core CPU, Graphics card varies on what you want to play the power supply you listed is a good brand (Corsair) and the 80Plus Bronze is okay.

Hi All

I'm looking to get some form of network storage that I can use between my PC, Laptop and PS3. I have been looking at Lacie and WD:

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/128649/rb/0
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/127255

I have heard poor reports about the WD drive though, apparently there's a supscription needed to access the full remote features!

Ideally I would like around 1tb, but 500gig would do for now as long as I can connect additional hard drives (daisy chain) to the NAS box for extra storage/backing up. FTP access would be useful too so I can access my files anywhere.

Have any of you done similar? Can you provide some advice on the best way of doing this?
 

A:NAS compatible with PS3?

SimpleTech NAS are very stable. WD not a fan of there devices. They just started to sell 1TB units here cheap for $320.

Do you have a router between the PC, laptop and PS3? Not hard to configure the device to the network.

Hello all.
Well, having a dell dimension 3000 is not the best thing in the world, but ive decided to upgrade it as good as i can. i will be buying a new graphics card any time soon, and as im not that pro with anything regarding computers i would like to know if anyone could help me put a list of things that i have to look at when im getting this new card. i know that only PCI slot card will work for me, so i have only a couple of choices. the 6200, the x1550/1350, the 9950, the fx5200/5600 and the 9100 graphics cards seem to be compatible with my computer. now, what i dont know is what else do i have to make sure of before i buy the card? for example does it matter if the clock speed of the card is different from my FBS? (too bad i couldnt find my FBS properties anywhere )
what im asking basically is what i need to know for the card to ultimately WORK on my machine, not what the best card for my machine is.
Any help is great
Regards
Kirill


P.S: also, if anyone wants to just tell me which of the cards listed above they would buy, or their own choice for a PCI slot, i would appreciate that too. ( games i want to play w/ better settings : Il2 Sturmovik 1946, flying sims, HoMM5 on full high (probably), The Guild 2, oblivion( not the best settings of course), and other games of 2000-2006. nothing uber-leet-new super demanding.)
 

A:Compatible or not?

I can tell you that if you want to get some quality gaming done, you will need a motherboard with a PCI-E slot. It's just impossible to get any decent FPS with your PCI slot limitation. I ran a FX5200 in my Dell 3000. It was a little better but I hate to tell you but you must at least have an agp slot and at this stage of the game you would be shopping for a PCI-E slot. I would also get a larger case to build in because the Dell 3000 is so small and you will need room for your machine to breathe and have a chance at cooling. Don't be bummed. Start shopping and do a lot of studying on each part that you might use. In the end you will be happy instead of frustrated.

I just bought a new PC that unfortunately does not have enough RAM (512MB instead of 1GB) to run the OS (Vista basic) it came with effectively.

Here are the specs for the machine.

This is the memory it came with: 512MB PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM memory 2 DIMM (240-pin, DDR2)
Is there any way of telling if this RAM is compatible?

Memory Size 512MB

Memory Speed 533MHz PC4200

Memory Type DDR2

Memory CAS Latency 4

Pins 240

Thanks for the help,

Matt

What is this and what does it mean. I have a laptop hooked up to a tv that works and I have 2 newer laptops that don't work. Tech support for the TV says it might be drivers but He did not really seem to know a whole lot. I saw this in the documentation and am trying to figure out what exactly it means????????????????
