Latest Microsoft Patch and Intel Video Chip

Q: Latest Microsoft Patch and Intel Video Chip

Hey All,
Walked into complete chaos today at the office...seems like a Microsoft patch that was automatically updated on my users machines completely messed up their video settings.
The Dell GX270s would all boot up but then go blank after XP logo screen. As far as I can figure out, some new driver update threw the integrated Intel video driver out of whack causing it to use a resolution that the crt monitors can't handle. So far I have had to reinstall the intel driver and overwrite what was automatically installed.

Anyone else run into this today?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Latest Microsoft Patch and Intel Video Chip

Yep, here too. Intel chipset video cards. So far I've gotten two calls, fixed one with a system restore. Other one I'm waiting for a callback.

Haven't had any problems with Windows Update for a looooong time....guess it's inevitable to have glitches. <sigh>

After applying KB4056894 to my windows 7 laptop, visual studio 2010 stopped working, manifesting all sorts of subtle bugs which did not go away even after fully repairing Visual Studio 2010.  In addition, the import settings operation returns fourteen
errors consistently, also new with KB4056894.  I just restored from a Nov 2017 system image and now everything is stable and functional again.
I have now blocked all future windows 7 updates, which is fine with me.  These updates always consumed a lot of time and I'll be happy to go without them starting now.
I also have windows 10 installed on the same laptop which I stopped using several months ago, in favor of Windows 7 due to the latest Windows 10 being such a horrible operating system.  It's even worse than Windows 8.  Sorry to say this, but it's
true!
At least in windows 7 all control panel settings reside in one control panel! I believe that Microsoft has been working on the new metro/universal app for settings since 2011 starting in windows 8!  It's now 2018 and these settings are still split between
the UWP settings app and the desktop control panel.  I thought I took a lot of time to get things done, however Microsoft takes the cake when it comes to taking time to get things done.

I need some major help with the latest Windows Update (the set of patches that came out this Tuesday to help with the security issues), I think it is causing issues for my laptop PC. I'm not computer illiterate but I'mdefinitely nothing more than a beginner and this is starting to make me panic a little ^_^;

My laptop has been having major Startup and boot issues since the update. My laptop freezes and goes to a white-grey screen. The computer does start up - ie: the screen comes on (white screen, unless I am lucky enough to get a boot screen for a moment) the fans run, but it takes several attempts at turning it on and off again, and hitting either F12 or F8 (still not sure which one is the one that works) to get to a screen that allows me to repair the Startup and go back to a retore point. The last time this happened it also beeped at me however I would not be able to tell you what the code sounded like (I...panicked somewhat).

However, the restore point was made just after Windows downloaded the updates onto my comouter (I had automatic updates on), and I cannot shut down without my computer wanting to install the updates. So I'm stuck in an endless cycle of downloading these updates, then being forced to restore.

Can anyone help with either finding a way to stop my laptop installing these updates, or does anyone know a way to troubleshoot the updates themselves?

Additionally, the panel works fine after it comes out of sleep mode.Any time the video mode changes (e.g. by a resolution change, plugging in an external monitor, or starting the computer) the built-in panel will be garbled.

Am I just unlucky with my systems, or is there some software variable that could mask (or create) the problem?On Windows 7, I can revert to an older driver to make the problem go away.

Unauthorized Patch For Microsoft WMF Bug Sparks Controversy

Sober worm may hit tomorrow, but businesses are more concerned about the WFM vulnerability and Microsoft's inability to produce a patch this week. Some are choosing an alternative that could lead to other problems.

By Larry Greenemeier
InformationWeek

Jan 4, 2006 01:00 PM

Concerns over the lack of a Microsoft-issued patch have pushed the Windows Metafile/Zero-Day bug to top of mind, surpassing even tomorrow's much-anticipated Sober worm attack.

The lag time between the Dec. 27 discovery of the WMF vulnerability and Microsoft's planned Jan. 10 patch availability has forced IT security departments to find alternative means for protecting their systems and prompted a non-Microsoft developer to create a patch that others could use.

All of this serves to damage Microsoft's reputation as a company that can secure its own products—a reputation that only recently was beginning to improve after years of being dragged through the mud. Experts are divided over whether it's wise to use Ilfak Guilfanov's Hexblog patch to fix the WMF vulnerability, which could allow attackers to use WMF images to execute malicious code on their victims' computers. Some say it's a necessary measure to protect systems until the official Microsoft patch arrives; others say it's not worth the extra work to patch twice or to take the risk of using a third-party fix.

After the Anniversary update on our two PCs, I find that Homegroup will not connect the two. One is running Pro 64-bit and the other runs Home 32-bit.

I can leave the Homegroup on my PC (Pro) and on the other. Then I create a new Homegroup on my PC and get the password. However, the other PC does not see any Homegroup to join on the network (only the option to create a new Homegroup). I never had any problem with this prior to the update.

If I select My Computer, I can 'see' the other PC but when I select 'Open' and box comes up with ID and Password. My PC is the only one of the two that is password protected. The Home PC boots right to the desktop.

Hi,

I'm building a computer, and i'm having a bit of trouble deciding the processor to buy.

I was originally looking at the quad cores, when i saw the tri-core 2.8GHz AMD chip for $130 (canadian). The model is the AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz 7.5M AM3 Bk. I was very satisfied with this buy, until my friend started to tell me that it is important that i buy an intel chip because it is better. No, he did not really give a good reason why lol.

So a near-equivalent Intel chip would be the Intel i5 750 Quad-Core 2.66GHz 8M. This would be about $240.

Can I get some advice? Is there any reason to spend the extra hundred bucks for intel? Give me your thoughts.
 

A:AMD chip or INTEL ?

Just a personal opinion,but I have always run AMD because
they always have a better price for the performance.
Never had problems with any of them.
I think I am going to go with an X2 6000+ next month and a
new motherboard.
More than enough for my needs and the price is right.

A:Intel's Core i3 chip launch.

This is an exciting release. If it's anything like the new 1156 i7 and i5s it will be a great CPU.

I may regret buying a laptop today. Mine has a Core 2 Duo but great memory (DDR3) and a 7200RPM HD.

Forums now advise pc users with Intel core processor check with their OEMs to get a vulnerability fix for Intel manageability firmware versions 6.x, 7.x, 8.x 9.x, 10.x, 11.0, 11.5, and 11.6. While my reading indicates the consumer PCs are not affected, I wonder if I can trust this. I have an Intel i-7 processor.  Advice?

Hello
Im looking at either an Intel E6600 or E6700 Core2 CPU with DG965WH Mobo.
On Intel's site it recommends DDR2-800(mhz) Ram but when I called Intel customer service the guy told me since the CPU is maxed at 1066mhz/2 = 533mhz each, I should only get a 533mhz DDR2.

Does anyone have an E6600 or E6700 CPU and what kind of ram did you use?

thanks

I have intel express chipset 910GL, I got the drivers with my computer., but I did a driver cleaner to get rid of them so I could install my geforce... sadly it melted so I have to go back to my chipset for a little while... I installed all the original drivers, only now it runs like absolute crap... any suggestions?

I was just curious because of my own problem lately and noticing I am by far not alone on the issue it seems to affect multiple motherboards from multiple manufacturers.

Anyhow the default multiplier for this chip is supposed to be 9, but it seems a lot of motherboards and systems are defaulting it to 6 effectively making it a 2ghz chip. (it even gets reported incorrectly in some cases until you run cpu-z or check your system specs later down the road)

I was curious if anyone else around here has experienced it?

It is called SpeedStep, it helps the CPU stay cool when not under load.
Its nothing to be concerned about or to turn off.

Was recently looking at Intel's CPU reference at http://www.intel.com/pressroom/kits/quickreffam.htm. Some processor BUS speeds are in MHz, which I understand; but some (why??) are in "MT/s", which is "megatransfers per second".

(a) What's the difference between "MHz" and "MT/s" and (b) why aren't all CPU bus speeds rated using the same measure?

And why did Intel stop providing explicit chip frequencies like they did for several decades so you could instantly compare CPUs? E.g., a Pentium 4 3.2MHz was faster than an Pentium 4 2.6MHz. When you look at buying a computer today, what you typically see is only "E8400". . . and have no idea if that's faster or slower than a "Core i7".

Hi! I have Windows Vista Ultimate running on a MacBook (2.2 GHZ 4GB RAM) with BootCamp and the problem is when I use the battery Vista runs so slow.

Using CPU-Z I realised that the CPU (Intel Mobile Core 2 Duo T7500) is thorttling from 2.2 GHZ (2194.7 multiplier x11) to 1.1 GHZ (1197.1 multiplier x6) and use to stay all time on 1.1 GHZ

This throttling issue remains when the laptop is plugged, but is this related with the slow performance when working on battery?
I have to say when I booted Vista on Safe Mode working on battery it performed without problems so it should be Vista or some software causing this.
I checked the programs starting up with Vista and I suspect the Boot Camp software and Apple Drivers can be doing this.

Hope you can help me with this because I'm on the move all time.

Thanks!

I monitor and record various Microsoft Updates for Work, Today I discovered what I believe to be a mistake in online security guide:

I was looking at updates for Windows 10 version 1607 for 32 and 64 bit systems when i noticed an odd patch out

It appears to me the 4054517 patch which belongs to windows 10 version 1709 32 bit was wrongly attached to the 1607 32 bit 

Clicking on download for this patch gives you a download list for the wrong version of windows 10?

Is there anyone who can confirm this

It took me almost a whole work day to drill down to the single patch causing the problem coming with the latest patch day.

It is kb3109094 which breaks the remote X display of the Xclient.
Please may somebody at microsoft have a look into this as kb3109094 is marked as a security patch and I suspect the security has been tightened too much here.
The whole process of finding the problem cause was very time consuming and it raises 3 questions for me:
Q1. Why can't I just download the patches that my system wants
without also automatically install them?
       (It takes about 20 minutes up to an hour for my system to check the patch status if I invoke it manually and this is a process I have to repeat redundantly if I only install a subset of the shown patches in a single swoop)
After I had manually downloaded the required KBxxx.msu patches one by one I also had to install them one by one.
Q2. Why is there no GUI option to select a bunch of patches from a downloaded directory and install them in one go? (not forgetting to set a restore point before installing)
Q3. Why is there no easy! feedback channel for problems resulting from updates? 

       It may become worse with windows 10 automatic updates if a bad update breaks something and people cannot give feedback on this quickly.

Intel unveils energy-efficient 48-core chip

Research chip said to be 10x to 20x more powerful than chips in multicore Core family

By Sharon Gaudin

Computerworld - Intel Corp. is honing its sights on many-core chips that are far more powerful than today's dual and quad-core processors.

As expected, Intel took a big step in that direction today by unveiling a 48-core research chip that it says is 10 to 20 times more powerful than current the top end offering in its multi-core Core line of processors. Intel also noted that the experimental chip uses the same amount of energy as two household light bulbs.

With its eye on the data center and the cloud, Intel built fully functional cores in the new chip as part of what it calls its "terascale" mission.

"With a chip like this, you could imagine a cloud data center of the future which will be an order of magnitude more energy efficient than what exists today, saving significant resources on space and power costs," said Justin Rattner, Intel CTO and head of Intel Labs. "Over time, I expect these advanced concepts to find their way into mainstream devices, just as advanced automotive technology such as electronic engine control, air bags and anti-lock braking eventually found their way into all cars."

Today's unveiling of the 48-core research chip comes about two years after Intel showed off an experimental 80-core chip. That research chip had teraf... Read more

This is why I always scoff at people who are trying to build a machine that is "future proof". There is no such term in the computer industry. Instead, I find it better to buy middle of the road most times and simply upgrade more often down the road.

Have built 2 sytems recently and am having slower boot times on my 3.0 rig with an 875pbz mobo 2 gig 3200 ram, 2 36 raptors in raid 0, striped to 64k.

The other system with an amd 2700 chip 1.5 3200 ram, gigabyte pro 400 2, and a single wd 40gig 8 meg boot drive boots up far faster than my more expensive rig.

I'm sure I have everything installed correctly, bios set right etc. I am using a promise ide card that came with a 200 gig maxtor drive, could this be slowing the boot time ? I will take it out to test.

Anyone know of any issues with this board ? I have read the intel tech support responses and have followed them accordingly...

Thanks, Bruce

Advanced Micro Devices is trying to beat Intel on price with its latest six-core desktop Phenom II X6 processors that were unveiled today.

AMD is shipping two X6 processors that are substantially less pricey than Intel's latest six-core Core i7-980XM desktop processor, which was announced last month. The Phenom II X6 1090T processor runs at 3.2GHz and is priced at $295, while the 1055T, which runs at 2.8GHz, is priced at $199. Intel's Core i7-980XM desktop processor is priced at $999, according to a price list on Intel's Web site.

The X6 chips are targeted at gamers and buyers looking for high-performance desktops, said Adam Kozak, platform marketing manager at AMD. The chips are the fastest yet in AMD's desktop processor lineup.

There we go.....that is typically how AMD competes with Intel on CPU's. It's not usually $50 price differences we are talking about. It's hundreds of dollars. And the Core i7-980x is over $1,000 which is insane Now to start reading the benchmarks.

Hi all

Just bought a new (2nd hand) Intel chip off Ebay - Northwood 3.4 GHz which i was planning to put in my shuttle but the pin side seems to encompassed in a white compound that has dried so the chips are intact but it looks unsightly and i dont know whether it will affect the performance (havent tried it yet)

Here is a very poor quality image, i will try and take a higher quality pic tomorrow


Please tell me what you think, surely if this is the thermal compound it should not have been put on the underside?

Thanks
