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 guys

I bought a new laptop (Dell Inspiron 15R N5010)
My main uses are multimedia works, graphic designs & video editing etc.. i never thought about gaming, coz i already have x360 & ps3
but i wanted to know my laptop's ability to run games
so i went to: systemrequirementslab website and tried some like
crysis 2, nfs hot pursuit, ac: brotherhood.. all met the requirements
with the green bar full.
(look at the small line near the "fast" icon, which means almost full)
but when it came to battlefield bad company 2 vietnam, wierd thing happened!

required 512, mine is 1GB (or 2.7 as they show)
required ATI Radeon HD 4870, mine is 5470

what do u think?
i think they're wrong coz even their info about my laptop is wrong
(video ram & graphic card info are not true).

sry for my english :S

A:How come my graphic card doesn't meet the recommended requirements?

and what do u think of this laptop
is it a good choice?
reason for buying it is because of the good specs as well as the price!

So this morning I woke up to a forced password change. I tried the same password and it didn't take, doesn't meet security requirements. After a few tries fighting with it, I gave in so that I could log into my computer. Checked the local security policy, the only requirement was set to save for 42 days before expiration. I changed that to 0, tried to manually reset and it still refuses.

Setup: Custom build, Windows 10 pro, completely up to date, local account (signing into apps only with MS account).

I used my service tag in "I'm looking for drivers and downloads" and filter which is compatible under Windows XP. but when i downloaded the file and run, its always encountering "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software". I've checked my OS and its updated. Why ?
I tried also to choose a model which is similar to my Inspiron Desktop 530 and download the video controller, unfornatunately no match and compatible on my video. Anyone can help me on this?
Thanks in advance,

A:My Computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the video controller

What is the actual video driver file you downloaded? Did your 530 come with XP or did you install XP yourself?  If your 530 came with Vista, for example, then the Dell download listing based on your sevice tag will have Vista drivers.   Also what video is installed in your 530.  If you don't know, download the free Belarc Advisor and run that and it will list what Video you have.   www.belarc.com

Dear All,

I hope this is the correct forum to ask this question - if not can a Mod move it to the appropriate place?

I have fixed a colleague's laptop. It was running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with 1Gb memory and I gather that it prefers at least 2Gb.

Given that it is running with 1Gb (which I guess is the minimum), what is the recommended amount of memory for a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installation?

Thanks in advance

hi i get constant fps lagg on most games i play ill give a list later on, i recently reformatted from windows 7 ultimate to windows xp, before when i was on W7 the lagg was there but playable, now its unplayable, the reason i down graded was that i only had 2 gb of ram on windows 7 and it just wasnt enough, when i first bought my pc i had bucket loads of fps on max settings on any game i wanted, ill give a list of before and after.

before: - brand new

CSS: 300+ max settings
crysis: 30-80 ultra settings 60-130 high
starcraft2: like 100+ constant
wow: 120+ max settings
dead island: 150+
hon: 100+
league of legends: 150+ max settings

after+reformat+windows XP

Dead island: 60-90 max settings strange how i get ok fps on this and bad on others right?
Star craft 2: 1-10 lowest settings
League of legends: 10-20 lowest settings?? i mean cmon that's gotta be a joke right?
hon: 20-40 low

there the only games i have after the reformat.

i have no idea whats up with it so i ran some tests:

PRIME95: no errors after 5 hours so gave up
FURMARK: scored 18 fps
checked drivers with GPU-z and its the latest version
checked tempratures and there fine 42 degrees with fan on 30%
cpu temp is around 60+ but i dont know as i cannot hold my finger on it for less then a second or it will melt it off so maybe that's overheating? dunno, has always been like that tho

that's all i could think of

hey all, just wanted to say what an amazing support forum this is for vista, just a good read over the tutorials section managed to fix/correct everything i wanted.needed after installing vista

anyways, found a nice little website to see if you can play a specific game on your system. i know you can check the game website for minimum requirements and all but for the lazy ones like me, just in couple of clicks you can see if your computer is good for the game. another thing that was handy to me was that it shows the minimum requirements of a game and you system specs on a bar from worst to best, gives me an idea if i can push the in-game settings to maximum or not ie. graphics =)

Well, they're usually slightly higher than what you actually need, but thats just so people can't complain when their 700mhz gets a bit choppy. It's usually the minimum requirements to get completely smooth gameplay.

I was just wondering, what does "Minimum Requirements" mean exactly? I know what it means, but I don't think that I completely understand it. Does it mean that if you have the bare minimum requirements for the game, that the game will play, but not exactly the way you might expect, or does it mean that the game will play ok, but it just won't have all the special effects, etc. that it could if you had the recommended requirements? I'm referring to GTA3, because that's where I had the problem. The minimum reqs. for GTA3 are a 500MHZ processor, 96 MB of RAM, a 16MB video card, etc. Now, I have a 556 MHZ celeron, 320MB Ram, and no video card (onboard video). And GTA3 still plays very slowly! I thought that since I have all this RAM, and my processor is a little faster than the minimum requirements, that it should play fine. So, is this how it's supposed to play?

A:Minimum Requirements for Games -- what does this mean?

You do have a video card if it is on the motherboard. It is probably still slow because you do not have 16MB of memory on your video for one thing. The requirements are "minimum" and there are normally a prefered configuration listed on the game as well or optimal game play.

If there's a game that has the minimum requirements of say "1.9 GHz" (the game doesn't use dual core; such as it is an older game) and I have "Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6320 (1.66GHz,1066FSB) with 4MB cache", do I meet the requirements?

Like if I had 2.0 GHz with one core, I would meet the requirements. But in the case of 2 cores with less GHz, I'm not sure.

What is the make and model of your computer? I also see that you have integrated graphics, so if you are gaming this could be a bottleneck for you. What game(s) are you planning on using.

I've been having issues with City of Heroes and City of Villans for awhile now... not sure how long but I see to remember when I got the games running them in "recommended mode, but now... If I run with the settings to "Performance" everything is fine, except one area I have to put it down to Basic when I am there. Thing is, as near as I can tell, I should be able to run on RECOMMENDED, as I would think I exceed the Recommended specs for the game, but maybe I don't? They've not done any graphics changes that would increase the system requirements.

SO, the game's RECOMMENDED Specs are as follows....

Microsoft Windows 2000/XP * Intel Pentium 4 2.0 Ghz or AMD Athlon XP 2000+
1GB RAM * DVD-ROM Drive * 4 GB Available HDD Space * NVidia GeForce 6200
16-bit Sound Card * Broadband Internet Connection * Direct X 9.0 * Keyboard and mouse.

So, what I am not sure about is my processor and video card.

I just want to know why it's doing this.

I have no huge programs running in the backround that would use up all the CPU usage. It's only at about 13 percent whenever I load up a game.

I'm considering upgrading from XP (SP 3) to Windows 7. Read the requirements and seem to meet them all except I'm not sure about the graphics. Computer is just shy of five years old. It has Pentium CPU @ 3 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 260+ GB of free hd space. Graphics card is GeForce 7300 LE, DirectX ver 9.0c. Don't know how to tell if driver is WDDM 1.0 or higher.

1) How can I tell if my graphics card/driver meet or exceed the minimum? and
2) If so, is this upgrade advisable, given the age of my system?

Be sure you've installed the Dell notebook system software and reboot first - - before installing anything else.  Also be sure your system is at SP2 before loading drivers.
That said - you SHOULD NOT be using an XP system online - both for your own security and for the sake of not becoming a channel for malware toward others.  XP is totally insecure at this point - having seen no security updates in almost four years.

I have an HP Pavilion G6, which I upgraded to Windows 8. Here are the specs for the system:

HP Pavilion g6-1c74ca Notebook PC Product Specifications | HP? Support

When I upgraded I noticed some fps (frames per second) drop and ping rise on one of my favourite games, Ace of Spades. This game is remarkably simple, and as the developers put it "your grandmother's rig could run this game". Before the upgrade, the game ran fine. After, the fps decrease and ping increase led me to believe the graphics(fps)/network(ping) drivers might be to blame, so I went to the HP site to download the updated Windows 8 graphics and network drivers, link here:

Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion g6-1c74ca Notebook PC | HP? Support

When I tried to install them, I got this message for both:
"this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software"

2 questions:
1) Why would hp supply a driver on its sight that can't be installed on the system that has a page of these drivers dedicated to it?
2) I did some googleing into possible causes. One possibility was not having the right .NET framework installed. I checked, and do have the correct version. I also updated my BIOS, in case that was the culprit. What might be the problem here?

A:this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing...

There are two sets of drivers available at the link that you provide: one for machines with only the Intel graphics, the other for systems with switchable Intel/AMD graphics. You'd lose a lot of graphics performance if you had a switchable system and only had the Intel drivers installed.

I see no clear indication on the page as to which machines have the switchable package.

If you know that you have the switchable graphics option, I suggest uninstalling the Intel graphics drivers, and installing the AMD package (which is also supposed to include Intel drivers).

I have no personal experience with switchable graphics, so I haven't faced that issue. I don't know how to tell for sure whether the AMD controller is present. (Device manager?) Let us know whether it works out.

I am wondering if any of you have installed Win8 without satisfying "the official requirements," and, if so, what your experience has been having done so. I did it on a, I guess, 6-year old HP Pavilion lappy (2.2 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM), and the results have been definitely good enough. I have a couple of more or less minor problems, but others are experiencing the same ones even they they met the official requirements. Even the two GB of RAM is OK since I am not doing anything remotely demanding.

I have attached, via two pngs, my "Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant Report" FYI. Note that I ran the assistant after doing the upgrade so it shows that I am running Win8 already. Note that two items are duplicated towards the middle of the report because of my carelessness.

I also wondering what I am missing by not having the UEFI interface. I don't perceive that I need to change any related settings. Action Center alerted me to an updated driver for my card reader. I did the update. And, the assistant report indicated that I needed an app to play DVDs. So, I got the free Media Center download. The only other thing I had to do (because I hate tap to select) was to get, from HP, a Vista driver (probably updated from the original) for my touchpad. I had to do the same when upgrading from Vista to Win7 on the same machine.

Hello everyone,
I was thinking of taking advantage of the Dell XPS 15 9560's UHD monitor for watching movies, but it looks like there are numerous hardware and software requriements I have to meet first. The player I'm looking at specifies the following:

CPU: Core i7 / i5 processor for Intel 7th generation desktop (KabyLake-S) *, Core i7 / i5 processor for Intel 7th generation notebook (KabyLake-H) * U processor not supported
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 630 Built-in GPU for 7th Generation Processor
Main memory: 6 GB or more
External display: 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 or more) Display compatible with HDMI 2.0a (HDCP 2.2 required), HDR compatible (Playing back with HDR content when playing HDR content, HDR> SDR conversion)
Motherboard: Intel SGX compatible intel 200 series motherboard, HDCP 2.2 / HDMI 2.0a output compatible Intel internal GPU output compatible motherboard (for HDMI output)

Most of the things listed seem straightforward, but I don't know about Intel SGX, HDCP 2.2 / HDMI 2.0a,or HDR compatibility (although I don't believe that the XPS 15 is HDR-compatible, otherwise it would have stated so. Plus the monitor isn't 10-bit to my knowledge). Can anyone provide any further insight on this? Does the XPS 15 9560 meet these specifications?
For reference, here is the external player I was looking at, as it seems to be the only one on the market advertising UHD-playback capabilities: www.amazon.com/.../ref=sr_1_1

A:Does the XPS 15 9560 meet the hardware requirements for playback of UHD blu-ray discs?

So from what I gathered on the manual, the answer is no.  It contains an Intel mobile 175 chipset, not the 200 series. It also outputs HDMI at 1.4a not 2.X and i'm not sure if the Nvidia 1050 mobile edition would handle it all.

When Nvidia disappeared from Windows and Mint as well, I just did a fresh install of Windows and deleted the Linux partitions, and now I can't install them. It was Professional I had installed, now it's Home Premium, could that be a factor? NVidia GeForce 555M is the card on an Alienware M14x. Here's a pic of the Bios
I just reinstalled professional and no luck. Same issue. I should also mention the wireless driver isn't installing this time around (or last). Intel had to be installed first last time, but now it says it doesn't meet minimum requirements and I know it's the same one because I saved the drivers.

So, I just put in my new Nvidia GeForce 8500 GT and booted up a game, just to check out the framerate (which was awesome). After about 20 minutes, I glanced at the box my card game in, and though "Crap, forgot to check my PSU." So, I popped open my case and found that my PSU is 305 Watts - my graphics card says its minimum is "350 Watt or greater power supply."

First, yes, I am going to get a 400 Watt PSU within 2 months (hopefully).

So, the question is: What happens if my PSU does not meet the minimum requirements for my graphics card (its low by 45 Watts)? I've tried to do my research and find out for myself, but I've seen answers go from "Oh, its just not the best thing to do - its okay though," to "You will burn in a fiery hell-storm and God Himself will crush your computer."

Thanks in advance

EDIT: Yeah, I know this isn't the best card for gaming, but I got it for about $22 New on eBay

I need a cell to accept only data that meet the following criteria:
1. the first 9 characters should be composed of numbers only
2. the 10th character should either be a letter or the number zero (0).

If they don't meet both of the requirements, I need for an alert box to pop up informing them of the requirement they failed to meet.

How do I do this?

Is it possible to do this purely with an in-cell formula and formatting/data validation?

I just intalled MW3 on Steam for the free weekend. When I built this PC i knew I had more then enough specs to play Mw3 on highest.

Windows 7 64 Bit
Phenom ii x4 955 black edition ( Quad Core 3.2 )
Radeon HD 6850
two 8 gig ram sticks viper memory
700w Powersupply Modxsteam-pro
Caviar Black 500gb hdd
The default settings for me are highest resolution and most of everything on.
When I play the game and look far into the distance I get weird movement lag. Can't tell if its drops in frames, but it feels like it. It's super hard to aim and I do horrible ingame.
I brought down the res and put into windowed mode and I still have this problem on most maps. I changed some settings too.

A:Solved: MW3 drops/low frames? I pass recommended requirements though.

Hey guys,

My dad recently bought a HP Windows 8 laptop but can't get used to the new OS. He asked me to install Windows 7 on it for him. I'm currently trying to get the drivers sorted for it and for the Windows drivers such as Chipset and Graphics, i'm getting the error "This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software" which doesn't make sense as the specs of the laptop are:

Win 7 Ultimate X64
6GB Ram
Intel Core i5-4200U 1.60 GHz
Intel HD GFX

I can't get the drivers of the manufacturers website since they are all of course Windows 8 drivers.

What do i do to fix this??
