Conflicting information as to whether my PC is 64-bit Capable, help?

Q: Conflicting information as to whether my PC is 64-bit Capable, help?

I need to upgrade my desktop PC from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows 7. From the information I have seen online it is a bit conflicting as my 'System Information' states "System Type: x86-Based PC" which as far as I am aware means it is not compatible
however 'Performance information and tools' states "64-bit capable - Yes". Can anyone clarify this for me please before I purchase a Windows Upgrade?
Also unsure what Directx version i have as some informations states 10.1 while others state 11? any clarity appreciated.
Also worth noting my system information:

Shared system memory

Display adapter driver version

Primary monitor resolution

Unsure if it's possible to tell from this information but on a different forum discussing another issue somebody mentioned my graphics card is in the wrong slot and I'm not getting it's full performance; I was younger at the time and the technical explantion
flew over my head! so I left it be.
Any asssistance would be much apprectiated! Thank you in advance.

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.)

Hi,

I am currently looking at purchasing a Samsung 730b or 740b. However, I'm getting conflicting reports about the colors that it can display. Some websites (and the brochure) say that it is 6bit Dithering (16.2M colors), while others say that it's 8bit (16.7M colors).

Anyone have one of these monitors and know if they are actually 6 or 8 bit?

Thanks!

Trying to determine the maximum amount of RAM the ThinkPad T480 can take, however there is conflicting information provided by Lenovo. On Lenovo's online New Zealand store it mentions that the ThinkPad T480 CPU will need to be upgraded ("Upgrade the processor to select up to 32 GB of memory") in order for the max RAM to be 32 GB (in the customise section) which is very confusing, yet in the ThinkPad T480 Product Specification document it mentions 32 GB RAM for all CPU configurations. Lenovo haven't responded to the ThinkPad T480 sales enquiry I have submitted, which includes the question on the ThinkPad T480 max RAM. On Lenovo's online New Zealand store the chat function is broken, and there is no clear information provided about their contact hours. Is Lenovo's New Zealand sales/support team on holiday?

Hi there...

Finally decided to upgrade to Windows 10 and have downloaded all updates. However, When I click on the GWX icon, it says my PC can't run 10, claiming a compatibility issue. Then, after I click on "view report", it tells me I'm ready to upgrade.

Is this some sort of bug? The upgrade in the updates section is checked as if it's ready to go....

Thanks for any help you can give.

i recently purchaced halo for the pc and i have all the system specs and on microsoft's website it says im able to play it however that isnt the case. I need a T&L capable video card that runs at 32MB i would like to know the following.

what aspects of gaming would this attribute to (e.g. better graphics or increased sound quality)?

where could i find one?

about how much would one cost?

and finally is it worth tracking one down or should i just return the game?

and are most graphics cards T&L compatable

i got this computer second hand from my uncle so im still becoming familliar with what all its packin' but this is what i know for sure

it runs on microsoft xp
its a dell with the computer model L100R
runs on an intell pentium III at 1.1Ghz
510 MB of ram
has direct-x 9.0
chip type is intel(R) 82810
approx total mem is 32 mb
current display mode 800 x 600 24 bit 85Hz

on microsoft's website it says my computer can run the game but when i go to scan it it says it didnt recognise all my parts

thank you for your time.

A:i need information on T&L capable video cards what do they do? etc.

You need just a basic grahic card. One to play that game should be about $30-$40. Gives us the make and model of your computer so we can help you make a selction. (that is combatible with you computer)

So, on clean install, I am trying to install all my drivers. Obviously one of the network cards is covered. Now, I go to device manager, look through, to find the latest driver. Here is the driver I am working at this moment:Intel 82801FBM LPC Interface Controller - 2641.On one driver website which lists the device exactly as listed, I see this message:The Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility installs the Windows* INF files. The INF files inform the operating system how to properly configure the chipset for specific functionality, such as AGP, USB, Core PCI, and ISAPNP services.**Note**This is the last version of the Intel? Chipset Software Installation Utility that supports the Intel? 810/815/820/830/852/855 Chipset families, as well as the Intel? 840/860 Chipsets.But I already know my chipset is in the Intel 900 series... which in itself took 3 days of Googling 'cause the setup program does not identify itself as anything other then "1.5", and my device manager and System Information identifies everything as, "Mobile Intel 915GM/GMS,910GML Express Chipset Family," which actually does not exist, as for the variations on the name, more then one exists, so I could not even identify the chipset until I found Intel's auto-identification utility, and I don't remember what it was but it was 900-something not 800-something... the Device ID for this particular device is 8086:2641, but I guarantee there will be many, many more...

Secunia is reporting that the following is out of date and is vulnerable: -

"Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)"

This seems very strange for the following reasons:-

1. 2005 is a long time back. I run Secunia PSI once a week. Why is it only reporting this now?

2. Microsoft Update does not report this as being out of date.

The Folder information is the normal Microsoft Windows Folder for this software, so it is not another version installed by some 3rd party software.

Any thoughts or is anyone else getting this same message when running Secunia PSI on a Vista system?

Alright well recently, as in the last couple of days, I have been having problems with my internet. At random intervals of the day my computer will tell me that it is connected to the modem but the modem is not connected to the internet. However when I look over at the modem all of the lights are on and flashing like they should be. The DSL light is on and the Internet light is flashing to show that it's working. Furthermore if I go into the setup page for the modem using my browser the status page there also tells me that the DSL is connected and that the LAN is connected as well.

This happens randomly and when it does I attempt to correct this myself by changing my static IP settings and DNS server settings. Eventually it does start working again but I don't know if it is because of something I actually fixed or by random luck. I hope you guys here can help me figure out this problem.

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.

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.

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.

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:Is my computer capable of 64 bit?

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..

That wireless card is pretty old(release in 2004, discontinued in 2007), only does Wireless-G, and has no official Windows 7 support; get a modern Wireless-N card like this: http://www.ebuyer.com/263388-tp-link-tl-wn951n-wireless-n-pci-adapter-tl-wn951n

My old PC with a Core 2 Duo E6550(oc'd to 3.5Ghz) with a 512MB Geforce 8800GT could run Crysis decently, I don't see why this system wouldn't be able to do it even better. But if you do have any extra money available, moving up to the Radeon HD 6850 would be better.

The power supply is a bit on the weak side, 530 watts and from a brand I'm not really familiar with so not sure on the quality if it.

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.

Hi, Can't be SATA I but you can definitely use SATA III which be backward compatible with SATA II. Nearly all SSD's are SATA III now therefore you won't be wrong with that. No information form its manual but you can check yourself using the following tool        http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/pc-wizard.html It will shows the similar information (6Gb/s is SATA 3):          Regards.

Hi guys, i got quite aged pc specs:
intel core 2 duo e7400 2,8 oc @3.8
MOBO GA PE43 S3L
6GB RAM 2x dual channel (2x2GB i 2x1GB)
GF9800 GT

I was wondering if changing my hdd barracuda on any kind of SSD would at least maintain my performance, not thinking about boosting it. I mean stuff like fps drops and so on. Would it work in any possible way with my PC ? If yes can someone reccomend me some SSD ? Only thing i know is to be aware of IOPS stat of a SSD disk am I right ? Thanks in advance! cheers

A:If my rig is capable to cooperate with SSD

I don't game, but as far as I know an SSD will only improve game loading times and isn't likely to have much effect on gaming performance or fps.

You are being held back by your video card and CPU.

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.

Hey, recently I've been having some problems with my internet, mainly revolving around IPs. I've searched the forums for similar problems, and have tried some of the solutions, but to no avail.
Basically, when I'm doing anything on my computer, the internet cuts out randomly, and also randomly comes back on. Sometimes the error just fixes itself, and a little bubble appears at the bottom of the screen in the task bar, stating that "There was a conflict in IP addresses." Other times it cuts out either until I press the repair button in the network connections window, or hard reset the router.
I have a D-Link DSL-G604T router, which is connected to my main computer, and have a wireless external network of a netbook/laptop, a wireless homephone, two Ipod Touches and a Playstation 3. I'm not sure if the Ipods or the Playstation might be affecting the IP or not, but I'm just including it in-case it might be the problem.

Event Viewer:
In checking the Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools window, I can see a few things that might have caused the problem.

Security Tab: Failure Audit
IPSec Services: IPSec Services failed to get the complete list of network interfaces on the machine. This can be a potential security hazard to the machine since some of the network interfaces may not get the protection as desired by the applied IPSec filters. Please run IPSec monitor snap-in to further diagnose the problem.

after i sign into my msn & i see ive got mail, if i click on it, it opens internet expoler 32-bit, but it struggles to open or is very slow, how do i get the 64-bit IE to open automatically instead of 32-bit when i click on my 'go to mail' i.e. how do i disable the 32-bit IE.

A:32-bit conflicting

Have you enabled Tabbed Browsing (Internet Options/General/Tabs/Settings)? Then I expect it should open as a new tab in the same browser. I'm using 32-bit only since I don't have a 64-bit computer, but when I follow your procedure Hotmail opens quickly. Also, I expect you need to make sure both browsers (32-bit or 64-bit) open equally fast since there is no reason 32-bit should be slower. Perhaps you could try a reset: Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset.

Specifications on my PC are in this link.

I recently put my two HyperX 120GB SSDs in Raid0 but for some reason my boot time is about 2 minutes. I have good reason to believe that my newer SSD is conflicting with my 2TB Western Digital Cavier Black HDD. Earlier today I removed my newer (Only by a month) SSD and the computer booted up in 15 seconds. I reinstalled the SSD and it booted in about 2 minutes (and continues to do so) and this was prior to me putting them in raid0. Furthermore, when the SSD was out my 2TB drive was recognized in the bios where as now it does not. I do not understand why my 750GB HDD shows up though but I am not able to access it. I've check both Device manager and Disk management, but neither show my 2TB HDD. I've seen several threads similar to my problem but none quite the same. I'd appreciate any insight given on this matter. Thanks!

Things I have done:
1. Redo Raid0 and reinstall windows without HDDs installed.
2. Flash BIOS
3. Put HDDs in another Computer
I can't access the 750GB HDD nor can I format or change letter.

Also in the link, there are errors when you scroll down to the storage part that may be related but I am not sure.

Should I undo raid0 format both SSDs then put them in Raid0? Would that even make a difference? I am completely out of ideas on what to do because my 2TB drive is recognized in the BIOS if I install it without one SSD.

A:I believe one of my SSD and my 2TB HDD are conflicting.

What is on the 750 GB drive? Just data?

Did you purposely choose "dynamic" for that drive and if so why?

Do you insist on using RAID?

Here's the setup:
Windows 2000 server running DHCP and DNS, got about 15 clients, using a linksys wireless broadband router with 4 port switch to connect to internet. Everything on same subnet, all addreses assigned by DHCP. Everybody on the network is fine except for two stations.
One station is a wireless XP Tablet the other is a hard wired PC. The NIC MAC addresses are different and the IP addresses are different, however, when one of these two devices is working the other one is not.
Any ideas? I'm usually a pretty good troubleshooter but this one has got me stumped.

Hi, hopefully you can help me.

I have just recently switched from using a broadband modem to a wireless router for my internet.

I connect to my Xbox 360 through my LAN but since I started using my WAN both will not work together. Once the LAN turns on my internet stops working which is my problem.
The Wireless network does stay connected while the LAN is on but its just the internet connection that stops working.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

I am using Windows XP
My Wireless router is a Netgear DG834GSP
The Wireless network is using DHCP and the LAN is using a static IP. I have tried changing the LAN to DHCP but it just gets stuck on "Aquiring Network Address"
