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 all, I've been trying to get an answer out of the WoW tech forums but they can't help, So I will come here with my problem.

i used driver sweeper twice after uninstalling to get rid of any instance of the old driver, rebooted, reinstalled my old drivers, rebooted, started wow, speed fan showed that the core was at 62C and fluctuating between 60-75. i wasn't getting as many model errors with OpenGL, but it still doesn't fix my problem, after about 5 minutes of playing the computer just restarted, no warning or anything. no wow crash, just a restart.

I guess i should give you guys some background info, about a month ago, my laptop started to show so weird glitches and distortions on the desktop and any graphic intense program. i reinstalled drivers as instructed by the laptop building company (cyberpower) they say it's internal and that the video card may have fried and melted a part of the mother board. so i send it in, they clean/reinstall hardware and send it back. everything works fine BUT windows update, WoW, and AoC (only 2 games that i've loaded up since i reinstalled windows) windows update will download updates, then not install them, and both games show the same/similar problems, distorted models, random shut downs/errors.

basically the reason I posted this was because Cyberpower told me to send my laptop in and they will fix it (again?) and I'd really, really like to find any other solution to the problem than going throu... Read more

Hi All,

How can i play console games(XBOX, PS2 or PS3) games on my PC...???

Is there a way to do this or not...???


A:How to play Console Games on PC..???

You can play console games on pc 's by using emulators. Just google for each console you want to emulate but remeber to stay legal you must own a copy of the game you are going to emulate. The ones you've listed arent emulated well as they are too new and too powerfull so arent worth downloading. Iv listed a few below just google for any more you want:

Gamecube/Wii - Dolphin-emu - News
Nintendo64 - Nintendo 64 Emulator - Play N64 games on your Windows PC

I was using my Wii today when a thought suddenly came to me. Before upgrading to my current computer, I used a computer with a second rate video card. I was able to play portal on it but only when I dumbed down the graphics. Then, once I got the upgrade, using the same game disc, I was able to play the game with the graphics levels almost 100%. That got me thinking about the Wii-U. How logical does it sound for a console game's graphics to be capable of upconverting so that they look better on a console with a 720/1080p video chipset all the while using a game disc for a 480p version of the console? I mean, if the settings are adjustable for a PC game then why not for a console game?

(I'll understand if this seems like a dumb question due to the nature of consoles. But, I'm interested in people's opinions and technical expertise.)

I was just curious, how difficult is the process of porting a console game to a PC? How exactly do they do it? There are some games I wish they would make available to the PC. I would think maybe they don't do it because of an increase in piracy right? Or is it because it is such a hard task to do?

A:Port Console Games to PC, How do they do it?

The difficulty of porting from one system to another is tied in with the complexity of the game and who produces said game. This isn't just from console to pc, but console to console as well. The Big reason is differences in hardware. The 360 , PS3, and Wii all have different hardware, for example: 360 is HD disc, PS3 is BluRay disc. But the biggest problem, I think, is that different companies view different systems as taboo. Nintendo has a hard time releasing any of their games on anything NOT Nintendo, Sony (playstation) and Microsoft (360) are a bit more friendly with other companies, so long as their flagship games are exclusive to their systems, Halo comes to mind for the 360/PC. As for the piracy, you'll get that no matter what, I believe that the more available and affordable a game is, I think, the less you hear about piracy on it. Whether or not that really is the case in how pirated it is is something I don't know. This is just my perspective as both a gamer and a programmer.

I have reading through so many postings and I can't find what I am looking for.
My PS2 only plays games that have the blue backing on them. I know that the console can be returned to Sony, but only if the case was not opened. Well, we did to clean the lens and all, but that still didn't solve the problem with reading only the colored backed games. The silver/clear back games don't work at all - none of them. I've tried PS1 games and they work too.

So...other games work on it - just not silver backed PS2 games, we've cleaned the lens, and understand Sony will fix it for free but only if we never opened it - which we have...so what can we do now?
If anyone can help please drop me a line.

I've just installed ATA center and a lightweight gateway on one DC.  I logged into the ATA console and tried swapping the IP's of the ATA Center and ATA Console.  After saving my changes, there was a message about waiting for the gateways to sync
the new config, along with 2 buttons.  I think the first button was to apply the new config, but it was greyed out.  The second button was "revert".  After a few minutes, the first button never became available, so I tried reloading
the page.  Now I can't get the console to load on either of the 2 IP addresses.  
When I try to open either IP in IE, I get "this page cannot be displayed."  
How can I get the console back?

My laptop (toshiba L550-117) died a couple of days ago after a long line of service. As a replacement my eye has fallen on a Satellite P50-C-17J for it's superb specs.
But, my supplier in the Netherlands told me that it is End of life and therefore no longer available. I believe that is the case for all the P50-C series.

When do the new models (P50-C) become available?
Or is there a suitable alternative maybe?

I can't find one that's not a P50-C series myzelf.

Maybe this is not the right place to ask for this, but I don't know where else.

- Sixth generation Intel? Core? i7
- NVIDIA? GeForce? GTX? 950M
- 8gb memory expandable to 16gb

I think the P series is discontinued.

Solution wanted: I want to be able to have one base image / drive for all machines. The problem I keep running into is drivers. I want to have one drive that I can clone and pop it into any one of those 5 models and it will pick up the correct drivers and
work right out of the gate.
We have to update our image every so often and with having to update for 5 different PC's it becomes quite time consuming. Having one master drive would be much more efficient.

Most so-called Topseller models are not available anywhere. Why? Online vendors seem to have an abundance of only three P50 models, while one or two of a very few others trickle in sporadically, most not at all. Is this the way Lenovo releases these machines now? It used to be that models announced near the end of a calendar year would be stocked everywhere in great numbers by early spring, often at very good prices. Maybe having so many problems has held them back.

If I get a lenovo T61 with windows 7 32 bit can it can I upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit? Are all lenovo T61 think pads wireless? 

A:Are all T61 models equal

All T61 machines are 64 bit and can run a 64-bit OS.  There is no such thing as 32 bit -> 64-bit upgrade.  It needs a fresh install.  The same license is good for both, but you would need recovery disks.  T61 machines are not all the same:  14.1: tall-screen (4:3), 14.1" wide-screen and 15.4" wide screen.  There are difficulties in getting a fresh win 7 install working, related to system update.  Microsoft has not paid much attention to windows 7.

So, there I was... on my bench, with the M90z I'd bought for 8 cents on the dollar on eBay, all chuffed with myself.I installed all the drivers.  But I couldn't find *any* touchscreen drivers on lenovo's website, or anywhere else, for the 5205a25 I had in front of me. And it was then, and only then, that the implications of the matte LCD screen sunk through to me: even this i5-650 model -- the second fastest processor they sold with it -- must have been available without the touchscreen... and that must be what I got.<sigh>The touchscreen is mission critical to me, even if it costs me more.But *none* of the secondary market sellers seem to even address the topic.  And so this leads me to this forum, and this question: Is there, anywhere, a complete list of all the M90z 7-digit machine type codes, and which ones came factory equipped with a touchscreen?  CTO isn't an issue to me; unless the ad says touchscreen, I won't gamble.I have the M90z service manual, but it does not say.(To be clear here, I'm looking for a Lenovo-source document; the action cycle is too long to gamble on this more than once...)

Hi folks

Would need your opinions on memory compatibility.

I have two sets of DDR3 memory. 2 x 4 Gb in each case. One set of Ares and one set of Ripjaws. Here is the link that compares the two. Except for the heat spreader, they look identical to me. Same manufacturer, same Cas latency, same timings. Only the model is different. Under the heat spreader, they must be identical chips.


Right now, the Ripjaws are used. Ares still in the box.

My question is: Can I use both in my system (mobo: Gigabyte H97-D3H) without any problem for a total of 16 Gb insted of 8 Gb? I would not want to damage anything.

Thank you

A:Memory compatibility-Different models, same everything else.

This is a continuation of this thread - which was closed for some reason.

The specs for both sets appear to be the same, so I don't see why they can't be used in a 16 GB(4 GB X 4) configuration.

This seems to be a topic that is beating a dead horse, but I have yet to find a definite answer, so forgive me.I am currently on the market for a Yoga,  and it's come down to the Yoga Pro 2 vs the ThinkPad Yoga. I have found a model which seems to suit all my needs but I am unsure if it has a digitizer which supports the pen. From what I have read, it doesn't include the pen, but some sources say you can buy a pen and use it on the screen while others just do not mention it. The model in question is: S1 12.5" with the i5 and 500GB HDD and 16GB SDD. Model #  20CD00CHUS. Beyond this, is there an easy rule of thumb to see which TPY have the digitizer?Thanks, and sorry agan for the overly redundant question.

A:Which TPY models have digitizer support?

Good day and welcome to the community.
Searching for that MT-M on the support site yields:
ThinkPad Yoga 20CD00CHUS
i5-4200U(2.6GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HD, 11.6in 1366x768 LCD, Wireless Option, Bluetooth, Intel HD Graphics, UltraNav, Secure Chip, 8c Li-Poly, Win8 Pro 64
IIRC, no 1366x768 LCD models were equipped with a digitizer. That was an option only with the FHD panels.
Looking at the PSREF: http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/91 bears this out. A quick scan of the table show the 1366x768 models as multitouch, but without digitizer pen support. The specific model above is down near the bottom of the listing.

Regarding a new 1 TB External HD.

There seem to be a zillion different reliability surveys out there.
You folks are the real experts, so let me ask here:

Is there any consensous as to which Brand and Model is considered "the best" regarding reliability for
an external 1 TB (or 1.5 TB perhaps) HD.

Really confusing knowing which to get.

My Seagate, with very minimal use, lasted only about 3 yrs.
Was only used for backing up, (once every week or two) and unplugged the rest of the time.
Quite disappointing.


A:HD: Reliability Of Different Brands/Models ?

Yep, I have had bad luck with the last 2 Seagates I have bought, one was a 2TB and the other 3TB. The 2TB lasted about 14 months, the 3TB (both only used as a backup) only lasted about 8 months, then fried itself, yet I have 2 WD 1TB that have lasted with no probs for 3-4 years, and 1 has games installed on it.

Next week I am buying 2 new HDD's both WD a 3TB & 4TB, then 2 weeks later a Samsung 120GB 850 Evo, for my windows drive as I only use about 75GB as it is, all my other stuff is on other drives.

A:HP Spectre - difference between models

HP's product coding is just not very transparent but it is very possible laptops with the same specs have multiple product numbers depending on distribution channel. I am sure John Lewis and PC World is each big enough to receive dedicated model numbers from HP. I have scoured the spec lists for you on both these laptops and as far as I can ascertain, they are identical: same processor, memory, solid state drive, wireless card, screen resolution. Functionally I can see no difference.

Hello, I work for an engineering company and I was wondering if anybody has any experience with NX. I saw a guy post something about catia so I assume somebody might be familiar with it. It is popular CAD software used by major engineering companies. Anyway, I am looking to design a customized feature for the program. However I am not quite sure how to approach it.
CAD models usually contain information or can be analyzed to produce information that can be used to make informed decisions by engineers. Information such as volume, surface area, weight, length, height etc. I am looking to design a simulator that can take CAD models and produce results and information based on the simulation.
I will give you an example; lets say I have a CAD model of Boeing 747, and I want to know how exactly how much speed it takes to create enough lift to get the plane off the run way in it's current condition. Now the models contain all the properties needed for the simulator to know how heavy that plane is, and how the weight is displaced among the structure (centers of gravity).
Now that was just an example, I am not running a simulator on a plane.
However my first thought is this:
CAD models (particularly in NX) are resource intensive, and unlike the render engine in your favorite game engine where occlusion culling takes place, in NX and CAD software in general the way it renders geometry isn't meant to save on your PC's resources. Even on a high end rig with the... Read more
