Cumulative Word Frequency from a Phrase-frequency list in Excel

Q: Cumulative Word Frequency from a Phrase-frequency list in Excel

Hi,

I have a list of terms like:

Phrase Frequency
Hello Mother 5
Hello Brother 2
Hello Jackal 1

Is there a way I can get the cumulative frequency of each word in the list?

From the above example, the answer would be:
Hello 8
Mother 5
Brother 2
Jackal 1

Any help would be most appreciated.

Regards,

Robin

I was at Goodwill yesterday and I found an ECS K7SEM v1.0 motherboard for $6. Assuming that it works, I wouldn't mind getting an AMD cpu and some RAM to get this going as a multi-purpose additional computer for my apartment.

The original intent of this board was for AMD processor running at either 100Mhz or 133Mhz FSB. The manual for the motherboard says that the RAM speed cannot be less than the processor FSB. For example: according to the manual, if the CPU has a FSB of 133Mhz, then PC133 RAM must be used and PC100 RAM cannot be used. If a CPU has a FSB of 100Mhz, then either PC100 or PC133 RAM can be used, but not PC66.

This manual was printed in 2001. However, in 2002/2003, a new BIOS upgrade was created for this board to allow support for Athalon XP 2100 and 2200 processors.

I was looking at an AMD XP processor at newegg and realized that the FSB is 266Mhz, according to the specs. I always get confused about FSB ratings. Are you supposed to divide this number by 2 with AMD chips? Like if the FSB is 266Mhz, should I use PC133 RAM to be compliant with the statement in the manual about using RAM that matches or exceeds the CPU FSB?

Another question I had is related to the new BIOS update that supports the newer processors. Would I need to use an old processor in order to update the BIOS before I can use the XP processor? Or will I be able to update to the XP supporting BIOS with the XP processor already in the socket?

If everything goes smooth... Read more

A:CPU FSB frequency and RAM frequency agreement, and BIOS CPU support.

When an AthlonXP is advertised with a 266mhz FSB, it is actually running at 133mhz but its DDR nature makes it run as fast as a 266mhz FSB. Any 266mhz AthlonXP should work on that board provided it isn't above the 2200+ ( 1800mhz ).

After putting the parts together again, I recieve an error in BIOS.

"During the last boot-up your system hung for improper frequency combination."

I did not change any of the CPU settings and left them as default.

I am not certain why there's a substantial difference for idling CPU frequency between W8.1 and W7. My PC runs both OS in dual-boot mode, controlled by EUFI "F12" key. Other than both OS having it's own SSD drive, the hardware is identical.

Both OS used HWMonitor, v1.27.0, initially just to see the CPU temperature that lead me to the CPU frequency differences.

The HWMonitor for Windows 7 shows this:

The same for Windows 8.1 shows this:

And no, there isn't anything pegging the CPU, W8.1 task manager shows low CPU utilization around at the time the HWMonitor image had been captured:

The CPU speed/frequency is actually confirmed by the task manager. Is speedstep broken in Windows 8.1, or HWMonitor is not accurate?

Heya

I have this online game that I play(Asheron's Call) and I've played it for years on the same monitor(Gateway EV700)

My motherboard is Canyon, and my Graphics Driver is Intel (R) Extreme

Recently I had to format the computer and completely wipe everything and start from scratch.When I got the computer working again I reinstalled all the necessities(Internet Connection, Asheron's Call, Anti-Virus etc) but I forgot to install the Drivers.When I clicked on Asheron's Call(the game) to play it a black screen came up but instead of it displaying the game it displayed a small turquise box with a purple box inside it.

It read:

Out of Frequency

HF: 75.2KHz
VF: 75.0Hz

VF: 50(-)160Hz

Power save after 20 seconds.(this counts down to 0, unless I minimize the game, in which case the box disappears until i maximize the game again, in which case the countdown re-starts.If I let the timer run out, the green light on my monitor turns orange, and the screen goes on standby or whatever.then I have to turn off the monitor and turn it back on)
I talked to a friend of mine who said I should install my Graphics Driver(I hadn't done this yet) so I used the motherboard CD to install the Graphics Driver, and the game worked fine.

It simply means that the game is trying to drive the monitor at a higher refresh rate than it can display.

A:CPU Frequency

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

It sounds to me like your bios has been reset to the default settings, which will mean your fsb is probably set to 100mhz.

You need to go into your bios, and select the advanced tab, and then the advanced chipset configuration.

you will need to set the cpu frequency(fsb) to what ever your cpu should run at, I.E it will either be 133mhz/166mhz/200mhz depending on your cpu.

You can check your cpu specs at the AMD website.http://139.95.253.213/SRVS/CGI-BIN/...217292174,K=9272,Sxi=6,RESTART,DTree=OBJ(2132) Click on processor specs, followed by your type of cpu.

See the DDR table at http://hallicino.hubpages.com/hub/DDR1__DDR2__DDR3_Navigating_The_RAM_Maze .

I don't use CPUZ so I can't interpret where it got that 399/400 number. That usually applies to DDR2 modules, as you can see...or your RAM is underclocked currently so that it performs like DDR3-800. Memory Clock: 100 MHz. Bus Clock: 400 MHz. Data Transfers/Sec.: 800,000,000. Module Name: PC3-6400.

If you put RAM in that runs at a higher frequency than 533MHZ, then it will automatically run at the fastest speed your computer accepts (or should, at least) which is 533MHZ.

P.S:I heard it should be 3xDRAM Frequency(667mhz).

its actually MT and not mhz but people say mhz and to answer your question your motherboard is slight OC'ing that RAM to 12800(1600) instead of its rated 10600(1333) speed which if its stable is fine. you get your sticks speed by doubling its speed so a 1600 stick runs at 2x800 mhz to give you that speed. its confusing i know. if you look at your memory in cpu-z like i posted below you can get an idea for what your memory supports and what it is at?

Do you say "it appears pc3 10600s" because you personally opened the case and read that off the sticks?

What brand and model do you have right now?

DDR stands for "double data rate"; so it is 667*2=1333.

DDR3 1333 can be designated as PC3 10600 or PC3 10666. A few manufacturer's use the PC3 10700 designation, but that is less common.

You could also go to Crucial.com and let its configurator sniff your PC. It will make recommendations for compatible RAM.

Have you looked at the compatible memory list at the motherboard manufacturer's web site? You don't have to stick with what's listed, but those listed should be compatible for sure.

It's generally recommended to match all sticks exactly (brand, model, size, voltage, etc), but you can often get away with not doing that.

Good Day,

I hope someone can assist me.
I have been having a problem whilst gaming (although this also runs over onto net use when playing flash games ie. pokemon global link), I've noticed that my pc/game would stutter immensely for a while and then would run fine again.

I've found that in resource manager when this happens that my frequency rate drops from 100% to 25% and then after a time goes back to a 100% (stuttering then stops)

At first I thought it was with NT Kernal & System and through that and following a guide on how to locate the problem, I've established that it is the driver amdppm.sys

I'm not a terribly technical person, so thanks to all the tutorial makers out there.
I've then tried replacing the amdppm.sys with a different version of the same file, the stuttering stops, however after a period of time, my laptop would shut itself down completely.... so I replaced the previous file that I had thankfully made a copy of.

As helpful as google, this site and various others have been. I've yet to find a way to rectify the problem... without causing anymore and as I've said, I'm not terribly technical and fear that I might worsen the problem more before ever being able to fix it.

Please if anyone knows of a way to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hello All,

This is my first post but I have used this site to solve many of my problems before.

I have a RAM query, and even though I keep searching for info I get very lost in the details so I was hoping someone here could help me out.

I recently added 2 x 512mb RAM sticks to my motherboard, hoping to increase performance. There were already 2 x 512mb sticks installed. When only 2 are installed PCU-Z tells me the RAM runs at 200MHz, but when I add the other 2 they only run at 159.6MHz. I have checked the BIOS setup and it tells me the RAM is running at 333MHz.

So can I increase this to 400MHz? It does not allow me to change it in the BIOS setup. I have tried searching for the answer in the motherboard manual but havent had any luck - it just says that I can check the frequency, doesn't say anything about changing it. The BIOS setup also does not tell me the FSB (which PCU-Z tells me is 5:4).

According to Triple6 with reference to another user "4 DIMMS is your problem. Depending on the Stepping of your CPU it can restrict 4 sticks to running at 333Mhz instead of 400Mhz". Is this the case for my CPU? If so, could I buy 2 1Gb DDR 400 sticks and take out all the 512 sticks to allow the RAM to run at 400MHz? And if so again, would this increase performance other than marginally?

Any info is appreciated.

Thanks very much

Hey guys,

I realize that there has been posts about this in the past. However, from what ive read they were still able to get into windows and mess around with things. Well this was the case the first time around, I was able to update my friends video card drivers that were 3 years out of date. That fixed the issue for about two weeks. The issue cropped up in the first place when my friends son installed Left for Dead 2 on the computer.

Now whenever the computer is turned on and windows vista starts to load it goes straight to the black screen with "Frequency out of range" dancing across the screen. I cant even get to the login screen for vista. I dont have the specs handy but it is an E Machine. I know *shudder* The computer is kinda dirty and I plan to clean it out, and the monitor is using onboard graphics.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Frequency Out of Range

That usually comes up when the refresh rate is too high.

there's an AUTO button or something on the front of the monitor.
change the refresh rate.
Iis it an onboard video or a card? are there any beeps on startup? if so how many?

sounds like the video fault, that is when the refresh rate is to high for the monitor couple things you could try

first
press f8 on boot and select vga mode
the once into the os reset the video card options

second
try another monitor

third
if its a card, swap it out, if its on board put a card in

lastly
reset the bios to defaults check your motherboard manual there is a jumper on the motherboard to do this normally.

For about the past two weeks now, my CPU has started behaving strangely. I noticed it doing this while gaming, when what should have been perfect performance was kind of choppy. I alt-tabbed out of the game and peeked at SpeedFan, and noticed my temperature not rising above 50c while playing a game that normally shoots it up to around 75c.

Looking at CPU-Z, I see that for whatever reason the Core Voltage keeps randomly changing between 1.0 and 1.3v; this in turn is causing the multiplier to variate between 16-22. While typing this, it was staying at 1.235v, but dropped down to 1.0 when I ran a game just then to see if perhaps it had fixed itself like it seems to randomly do also. Also on that note, CPU-Z used to show my multiplier as "x23 (x23)", but now shows it as: "N (12-25)", N being whatever it's at currently based on the voltage, I assume. I don't know why it's suddenly listing a range of multipliers instead of just x23 as it used to. Also not sure why the range listed extends beyond what I thought was my CPU's maximum, x23. (I've never seen the multiplier go higher than 22 or 23 during all of this, or ever before for that matter.)

As far as I know, no Windows or BIOS settings are causing this, as nothing had been changed when it started happening (other than Windows updates). The only thing I've changed today was turning Turbo Boost off in the BIOS, but that had no effect. I was contemplating turning SpeedStep off also, as it kind of seems like th... Read more

A:CPU frequency fluctuation.

Your bios setting, things like speed step will make a computer do things like this.
It' designed to work that way.
When your computer has less demand the voltages will go down and the multiplier will change. When you computer is ask to do more work it will work in the opposite fashion.

Their are settings in the bios to change all this but it varies from motherboard to motherboard.
It's done for a reason. When you computer doesn't need the extra voltage and therefore the voltage is lowered the computer runs cooler. Under load the higher voltage will raise the temps so you might hear the fans speed up. That will depend on the fans and the temp.

If you don't have special cooling I would leave it set as it is. Changing such things without extra cooling will cause a computer to over heat.

I have this computer to run 4.6 all the time but I got lots of extra cooling.
2 pumps, 2 radiators and 14 fans.

To learn more it will take some time. My post is just touching what can and can not be done in bios.
Open you motherboard manual and go to the bios section and read. Then on ever setting Google it and you will find a explanation of what these thing in the bios do.

Hi guys i have some trouble with my laptop ram
i have a VAIO VGN-FE550G recently upgraded from 1GB RAM (2 slots of 512MB) to 2GB RAM (2 slots of 1GB each)
the point is that when i had the 1GB RAM i had a 533MHz of frequency and when upgrading i just get 333
the new RAM is a (not very sure about what model is just writing all the labels it has)
HYS64T128021EDL-3S-B2;
1GB 2Rx8 PC2-5300S-555-12EQ

as far as i know it is a 677MHz, my laptop specs says it only suports 533, but only geting 333, is there anything i can do to get at least 533MHz??

im attaching a zip file containing some specs generated with "piriform speccy"

i would really appreciate some help thax and sorry about the grammar, english its not my mother language.

Hi guys! First off, im glad to be in this community.

Well, after the past few months i have noticed that my computer has slowed down dramatically even though that i had fortnightly defragmented, virus scanned and cleared my hard drive from unnecessary files. My computer specifications are below:

Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32 bit
Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4GHz
4GB Ram
ATI 3650
(This is a laptop btw)

Recently (as of the last couple of weeks) i have been searching for any clues into why my computer was running so slow. That is when i encountered the Intel Processing Identification Utility. With this Intel program it stated that my expected frequency for my cpu is 2.4GHz and my system bus is 1066MHz(correct). However, once is scanned my cpu it said that it's reported frequency is 0.79GHz and my system bus is 531Mhz!!! I was quite outstanded!

However, today im going to clean out the dust from the laptop to see if whether or not that will make a difference (im sure it will for the temperature).

Guys, any suggestions would be great at this time.

Thanks in advance.

I currently have Windows XP pro running on a Dell Vostro 200. I have an up to date Intel graphics media accelerator driver (which I reinstalled to see if that would fix it but didn't.)

I keep getting "Frequency out of range 96.6" when I boot my PC. Not all the time. Usually, if I put my monitor on before I press the power on button on my PC, it doesn't show. But today it did. I hate this cause the PC boots up but the "Frequency out of range" message prevents me from viewing the Desktop so I have to power down the PC by pressing the button and start all over again. Not good for the PC and not good for me.

Situation began when I accidentally selected the incorrect range for my monitor. The "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" was unchecked (which I didn't see till after the fact) and I selected the wrong hertz for my monitor. I have since corrected that but it has not corrected on the system causing this error. I uninstalled and reinstalled the monitor using Device Manager but it didn't fix it. I'm wondering if there is something in the registry that is holding the old setting that I can change.

Thanks for your help.

Heya

I have this online game that I play(Asheron's Call) and I've played it for years on the same monitor(Gateway EV700)

My motherboard is Canyon, and my Graphics Driver is Intel (R) Extreme and I'm using Windows XP Professional

Recently I had to format the computer and completely wipe everything and start from scratch.When I got the computer working again I reinstalled all the necessities(Internet Connection, Asheron's Call, Anti-Virus etc) but I forgot to install the Drivers.When I clicked on Asheron's Call(the game) to play it a black screen came up but instead of it displaying the game it displayed a small turquise box with a purple box inside it.

It read:

Out of Frequency

HF: 75.2KHz
VF: 75.0Hz

Operating Frequency
HF: 30(-)70 KHz
VF: 50(-)160Hz

Power save after 20 seconds.(this counts down to 0, unless I minimize the game, in which case the box disappears until i maximize the game again, in which case the countdown re-starts.If I let the timer run out, the green light on my monitor turns orange, and the screen goes on standby or whatever.then I have to turn off the monitor and turn it back on)
I talked to a friend of mine who said I should install my Graphics Driver(I hadn't done this yet) so I used the motherboard CD to install the Graphics Driver, and the game worked fine.

Now today when I try and play the game, I'm getting this Out of Frequency message again.Can somebody help me please?

Recently, I added a new ram to my laptop with different frequency .one of it is 1333Hz and another is 1066Hz.After a few days , my computer hard disk is having bad sector , and ended up changing a new hard disk.Just wondering if the ram which caused the problem or it is just coincidence?
