Q: How to determine is PC is Vista capable?

I want to start playing around with Vista on my job because we have an evaluation version through Technet, but the only PCs we have to do that with are about 2 years old, how can I determine if they're Vista capable?

Preferred Solution: How to determine is PC is Vista capable?

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.)

Hi,
I was just wondering since I have a logo on my computer that says Vista Capable.
Will that mean my computer will run 2 times as fast as a Vista Capable PC?
It says Vista Capable PC on my computer but my system meets the minimum requirements of a Premium Ready PC.
My system is a:
AMD ATHLON 64 X2 Dual
Core Processor 3800+
2.00GHz, 960MB of RAM
250 GB Hard Drive
I found out this is the minimum of Premium Ready PC but I have a label that says Vista Capable which is half of the system requirments above. Does that mean my computer is X2 as fast.
Thanks.

A:Windows Vista Capable Pc

No, the differences are related to the capability of using Windows Vista features - not the speed.

Hi, welcome to TSF

Vista system requirements
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/pro...g_id=10042VHb1

You'll be fine with those specs. Make sure you get a good quality PSU if you're going to be running dual SLI graphics cards.

What's your budget for the new parts? For gaming, I would go for a newer graphics card (8800?) if it's within budget. See here for more details on the various 7600 cards.

Hello,

I'm considering upgrading to windows vista either 32 bit or 64 bit. I have an Intel Pentium D 830 3.00GHz CPU.

It's a Dell XPS Gen 5 with 4GB of RAM.
Motherboard is Dell 0GC068.
In system information it says Processor - x86 Family, 15 Model, 4 Stepping, 4 GenuineIntel ~2999 Mhz

I've only ever used a 32bit Windows XP because I didn't know if I could use a 64 bit OS or not. Could someone let me know if they think it's possible?

Also, should I get Vista or windows 7 do you think?

A:Intel D830 capable of 64 bit Vista?

Hi -

I do not advise an upgrade from XP x86 (32-bit) to Vista x64 or Windows 7 x64 as I believe you will encounter problems finding x64 device drivers. See how Windows 7 RC x86 runs on your system as it is very much like Vista, but runs much leaner. Be sure to obtain Windows 7/ Vista x86 drivers for all devices. Here is the hardware requirements listing from Microsoft -

Vista - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919183

Windows 7 RC x86 download site - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win.../download.aspx

This might be a really stupid question. I'm helping a friend replace his discontinued motherboard, but he's unable to tell me the CPU it used, aside from the socket (LGA775).

His original mobo was this

The closest match I could find was this

The latter is a bit updated, but it doesn't support hyperthreading.

The only info he could give me was that it was a Intel Dual Core 1.8 ghz, but that makes it either a Pentium D 1.8ghz or a core 2 duo 1.8 ghz. Pretty sure Core2 duo doesn't support HT, but I belive some Pentium D did. If his CPU is indeed a HT capable Pentium D, will it still function on the latter MoBo, despite the fact that the Mobo is lacking in terms of HT support?
 

A:Hyperthread-capable CPU, but Non-capable Motherboard

The latter supports all, and more, CPUs that the original one does:
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=897&MenuID=69&LanID=0
vs http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=858&MenuID=69&LanID=0
He'll have no trouble running the CPU. Except for having a craptastic ECS motherboard but that's no news for them.

Hey guys,

So I have been trying to install Vista on my PC using my Iphone as a flash drive and booting the setup from there. Everything works fine until I come to the window where you have to choose which partition to install to, my options are either:

DISK 0 PARTITION 2 Total Size: 35.1gb Free Space: 35.0gb (LOGICAL) or
DISK 0 PARTITION 3 Total Size: 35.6gb Free Space: 35.5gb (PRIMARY)

Selecting either one of these partitions and clicking next causes a pop up saying 'Windows could not determine if this computer contains a valid system volume' then the setup fails!

I have googled this but can only find suggestions to take out the USB or change boot priority in BIOS. I cannot do this without my Iphone/USB being plugged in as this is where windows boots from.

Does anybody have any idea's how I can work around this as i need to get my PC back up and running ASAP!

"I cannot do this without my Iphone/USB being plugged in as this is where windows boots from."

Correction - your iPhone/USB is where Setup boots from, not Windows.

Provided the hard drive has no operating system on it & no boot code, you should be able to set the iPhone/USB as the last boot device. The system should still boot from it after checking for other bootable media and finding none.

I bought a D630 and when downloading drivers, I notice theres x64 drivers listed so how would I know its capable of using xp or vista x64? Would I notice better performance on it?
 

A:How do you know if its capable of x64?

They will only work if you have a 64-bit operating system installed. It's likely you only have 32-bit but right click my computer and go properties, should tell you if its 32 or 64 there, at least in Vista it does. 64-bit drivers are only for 64-bit so they're made to support that type of system, just as 32-bit are made for 32-bit. For the most part, those drivers aren't going to offer any form of speed difference, they're just drivers to run on that type of system as 32-bit won't work. How ever as a whole, 64-bit has better memory utiliisation and speed improvements, etc.

Hello, I was just wondering if my PC can handle 64-bit version of windows. My friend has been forcing me to switch from 32 to 64 but I'm a little bit worried because I have only 2gb of ram. Any suggestions? Should I go for 64-bit without upgrading my ram or stay with 32-bit? Your answers will be highly appreciated, thanks in advance By the way, I attached my pc specs for your reference.

A:64-bit Capable?!

Unless you plan to install 4GB or more of RAM, moving to 64-bit will not buy you anything. 2GB is the MINIMUM amount of RAM for 64-bit Win 7.

If you look at the screenshot you posted of your system info, at the bottom of the System section, it tells you that the system is 64-bit capable.

If I were to upgrade something on your system, the first thing I would upgrade would be your video card.

A:Capable PC?

I looked up that graphics processor and it looks like a competitive unit. Capable.26.5 GB/sec.Bandwidth. Your ram memory is a good speed (667mhz) but try to raise that to two gigs. It will give your gaming more headroom. I'm not real familiar with the T7250 but 800 mhz FSB, &4 MB of cache will game O.K. 2 cores of 2.0GHZ won't burn the trail but it should keep up. I noticed that the 'Raptor' series offers 7200 RPM hard drives. And that 2 Gigs of Ram = $90. Also comes in a 2.4 GHZ core 2. Good Luck.

Can I just unplug her wires and plug them into my computer or do I have to set up some sort of network? If so, how and what do I do. I haven't done anything yet because I didn't want to screw it up.........know what I mean??

Also, if mine is hooked up I won't have the problem I'm having with her CDrom. I still haven't been able to resolve that issue yet.....short of calling out a computer repair guy and paying thru the nose.

I have a desktop that uses an Asus Z87 mobo. It is wireless capable (has an antenna you connect via two tiny cable connection to the back of the case). I have not used the wireless capability at all in the 4 years I've had the computer. I instead use an Ethernet cable direct connection between router and computer. Recently, the signal strength of that "hard-wired" connection dropped from 5 bars to 1, so something has gone very wrong. I swapped out the Comcast Gateway modem/router for a new one, but it made no difference. So today I disconnected the Ethernet cable, set up the wireless connection.

Since I am no longer using a wired connection, I expected to see only 3-4 bars of signal strength. To my delight, I'm getting 5!!! Great. . . but I haven't answered a basic question about why the Ethernet connection is all but unusable. Is it (a) because the Ethernet cable, which is 50' long and at least 10 years old, has developed a break, or (b) my LAN card is failing? Before I buy a new cable, I'd like to be sure that's the problem, not the LAN card. So my question is, does the wireless antenna connect to the LAN card, or (like USB wireless adapters), does it send its signal to the mobo by other means? If its signal goes thru the LAN card, it means the card is working. If the LAN card is not involved, it means my Ethernet cable is the culprit.
 

A:Wi-fi capable motherboard

If that 50' long ethernet cable is 10 years old and has developed a break, that likely is the problem.
You'll know for sure by replacing it.

I think your question is if your PC is capable of running a 64 bit operating system?

The answer is yes. However, you likely won't benefit from it. The HP website says the computer supports a maximum of 4 GB memory (one of the main reasons people use 64 bit operating systems is because they need/want more than 4GB memory). You also may have trouble finding 64 bit drivers for the motherboard components..

Anyone know if there is a timeline for release of 1.5TB or 2TB hard drives suitable for RAID 5 or 6 arrays ?

And by that I mean no "green" junk that powers down the drives and makes them drop out of the array or having to mess around with TLER settings and praying they work and your controller does not mark all your drives as junk. For example, 3Ware does not have any of the 1.5 or 2 TB drives on its approved list for this very reason. You'd literally throw your away your entire array on the first "green" thing these drives did.

In short, I am looking for enterprise-type 7200RPM drives, especially those that can accept MAID commands from the controllers which spin the drives down but know they are still good and able to be powered back up quickly. Any info is appreciated.

I have a ATI Radeon 4350 HD with the latest Directx 11 and want to know if it is 3D capable?

A:Is my graphics card 3D capable

Look in your ccc you can use the controls and i would belive it is 3d capable being a hd4000 series

but if you are talking 3d with glasses etc no it isnt you need a high end card for that feature

Nvidia cards use that and some of the newer hd6000 series does as well

I have setup my computer so that it can play DVD's and I started considering Dolby Digital 5.1 (DD 5.1) sound systems that have the DD 5.1 decoders in them but I'm not sure if my sound card supports the capability to send a DD 5.1 signial to the sound system. Now I don't know if a sound card needs anything special or if a coax S/PDIF or optical S/PDIF output jack is all that's necessary to send the DD 5.1 signal. The sound card I have is (I believe) manufactured by A-Trend
and it is a Harmony 3DS724A High Quality Yamaha PCI 3D Sound SONDIUS-XG Wavetable Synthesis with;

Speaker Out/Line Out
Line In
Mic In
MIDI/Joystick
S/PDIF

jacks. And so my question is if I were to get a DD 5.1 sound system which had its own DD 5.1 decoder inside could my sound card send the DD 5.1 signal or would I have to purchase a special sound card for this and why?
 

A:Dolby Digital 5.1 capable ?

You are all set.

AC-3 is an older term for 5.1 - they are the same thing.

That quote came from A-Trend.

A:Are these new computer parts capable with each other?

It looks like a good list, except for the MSI graphics card, they have poor support. Personally I would get the same version GPU from ASUS or EVGA.
The system should be a good one, love the case choice too.

I have a 3rd Gen X1 Yoga with the HDR Display option. The controls in Windows to turn on and off HDR capability are not there. I went through https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4040263/windows-10-hdr-advanced-color-settings and saved the DxDiag report which showed that the color space is wrong. However, I've tried multiple settings for the display in Lenovo Vantage (including Native and Movie Pro, both of which should be non-sRGB color spaces) and DxDiag keeps reporting the display color space as DXGI_COLOR_SPACE_RGB_FULL_G22_NONE_P709 and keeps saying it's not an HDR-capable display. What am I doing wrong?

Hello, I was wondering if I could install 64 bit windows 7 on a 32 bit processor if it is 64 bit capable? And if so, how, because when I try to run setup.exe, it gives me an error.

A:64 bit windows on 32 bit processor(64 bit capable)

Hiyya abhi I don't think so my friend I did find this for you.

32-bit and 64-bit Windows&#58; frequently asked questions

So I guess you are saying you have a 32bit machine and a 64bit OS disk?

Just out of curiosity what is the processor you have in the machine thing is if it does a have a 64bit instruction et I think it depends on the board as well.

If you want to find out go to Sart All programs > Accessories > System tools > System info or you can run Speccy if you have the machine running now.
Speccy - Download < download the piriform one and watch fo any addons like AVG bar I don't think it has that but if so untick it those ads are a pain.

I have a friend who needs a high end laptop to edit video from a GoPro Hero4 camera

It is suggested :
For higher resolution videos (1080p 60fps and higher): We recommend at least 3.0 ? 3.7 GHz Ivy Bridge processors (third-generation Core-based processors or AMD equivalent), 4 GB RAM, and a graphics card comparable to an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M. The graphics card and processor speed is important particulary for 4K and 2.7K resolution video playback.

I am from the UK and wonder if someone could make some suggestions as to a 15.6" laptop that could "cut the mustard"

Thanks

Can inplease have a list of all ram sticks i can use on the HP 14-ro24TX Haswell Corei3

A:Can i have a list of all RAM sticks capable for the HP 14-ro...

Seriously? No. I am not sure anybody has the time to compile a list like that. Why don't we ask nicely for a link to recommended RAM that will work. Where do you live (country)?

I am in need of a tech that can remotely go on to my computer and set up the drivers for a Nisca PR5200 card printer. This looks like a job that is out of my expertise. Fee's would be fine.
 

A:Tech that is remote capable

There are drivers here: http://www.nisca.co.jp/support.html
The page is in English, but if after you try the DownloadTool, and you still cannot get the printer to work right, let me know and I will remote assist.

Okay so recently my computer has been getting slower and I thought a RAM upgrade could not hurt at all. So how much RAM could this laptop take and what type of RAM would be best? My processor is the Intel Core i5-2430 btw.Also my fingerprint scanner will no longer work once my computer has been running for  awhile but will resume functioning once I restart my computer. Any way to fix this issue or is it just one little thing I'll have to live with? Thank you in advance

I have Windows XP Pro, SP3.

I have some experience with Linux, mostly Fedora. One of the best things in it, to me, is the Clipboard. In Fedora (Fedora Core) anyway, the Clipboard is much more capable than in Windows. For instance: you can put any number of items in the Clipboard, you just highlight something and it automatically goes in to the Clipboard (you don't have to right click the highlighted area and click Copy) and the best thing of all, to me, is that the contents of the Clipboard are saved when you log off and are there again when you log on.

Is there an application that runs in Windows that does these things?

Thanks,

royeo
 

A:Is there an app that makes a more capable clipboard

Yes there is. THis one is excellent and you can't beat the price Free.

Looked at a Dell XPS 420 but would like to avoid Dell. Does anyone make a Windows "Sideshow" capable case? Did a search on this forum and Newegg and saw nothing. Maybe it's just a fad and I'll wake up tomorrow and forget I was ever interested.
