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 all =). I'm getting a computer made with a 450w power supply. I'm getting a Geforce 6800 Ultra at least, but the company recommends a 480w supply for this card. I've heard of people having problems with their power supply not being able to cope with this card, but I don't know exactly at what power their power supplies ran. Will I run into any problems with the power supply I'm getting, or should I upgrade to 480w or more?

Don't know if you need this information also, but I think this may also effect my power supply:

Asus K8V SE Deluxe Motherboard
Athlon 64 3400+
1.5 GB pc3200 DDR Ram
120 GB HDD

Also heard that AMD uses less power than Intel or something...sooo I was thinking that perhaps my graphics card will not be affected as much because of this...but dunno. Help would be greatly appreciated =D.
 

A:Regarding Geforce 6800 Ultra, Ultra Extreme, or Asus v9999 Ultra Deluxe

One, Use a title once.

Two, nope nVIDIA GeForce 6800 families or newer REQUIRES 480w of psu minimum, PERIOD. it is not matter how much watts amd or intel uses, what you means that you must have 480w or higher to have GF 6800 working properly.

Recommendation, get ATI Radeon 9600XT or 9800XT, they merely used up less than 350w.

Lucan

You will get better games or things out of ATI instead of nVIDIA due to power usages

Hi guys, back after a few months away from this great site/forum.

I have a question regarding the CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard I was searching all over the web but can't seem to find out if this motherboard will support the new AMD 64 X2(dual core) 939 CPU? It says it supports the AMD 64 & 64 FX CPUs, but what about AMD 64 X2(dual core) 939 CPU?

If anyone here can help me out, I'd be grateful. Thanks.
 

A:CHAINTECH VNF4/Ultra Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Most nForce4 based motherboards support such CPUs but not all of them do so out-of-the-box. Make sure to have a motherboard from the latest production batch. If not, it might be handy to have a single-core to flash the BIOS in case it doesn't want to power up with the dual-core one.

Can I put an Ultra ATA hard drive in a laptop that used a SATA hard drive. The reason I want to do this is because a friend's laptop won't boot , not even in safe mode,( imo the hard drive is nackered) and of course there was no backup done.The files are needed. Now of course you'll say why not use Acronis to transfer the files to an external HDD but the problem there is that none of my friends laptops USB ports are working( haven't checked this but I'm assured it is true), so there is now way to connect an ex. HDD to it. What I'm thinkin of doin is putting the HDD into an old laptop of mine and using Acronis to transfer the files to CD or an external hdd.

What ye think? I'm inexperieced with laptops so please be gentle if this is a stupid post.
 

A:Can I put an Ultra ATA drive in a laptop

It is possible that you might be able to connect an ATA HDD to the buss where the CD/ DVD drive is connected. Whether that is SATA or PATA is anybody's guess.

Although, if the Laptop's HDD is broken, I'm not exactly sure what you think you're going to accomplish by doing so. If it's dead, it's dead, and that would require the drive to be dealt with data recovery methods. Very expensive.

Plan "B" involves running a cable to a desktop from the laptop, and offloading the data that way.

However, dead is dead, be forewarned

Hello everyone. I was hoping you all may know of an excellent laptop that can handle or
run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim PC game on Ultra settings smoothly?

From a few hours of searching, I have come across a few laptop brands and models
backed up by actual videos showing that it can handle the game with High or Ultra settings.
I am going to put all that I found in a list below and would like to know which one you
think would be the best one out of the bunch. I know prices will vary and some of these
are no longer in stock, but I may still be able to find them elsewhere, so I will still include those too.

If you all have any suggestions on a laptop outside of this list, do let me know.
I was hoping the price range could be below $1,000. I will try to include links to
each one so that you can compare the specs faster instead of having to search each one up.

They say on most of these videos that the recording program they use to record their game play causes the skips and makes the FPS drop by 10 or so.

HP Pavilion DV6-6135DX ------> Video showing this on High Settings, not Ultra

Toshiba Satellite S55-A5294 ----> An older version that can run Battlefield 3 on Ultra
Toshiba Qosmio X505 ------> Video Showing Ultra Settings

A:Laptop that can run Skyrim on Ultra Graphics

You can find laptops for gaming. And as you noted, you will pay more for a laptop over a desktop, sometimes as much as twice the price. And while it's nice to have a mobile computer, it's only mobile in the sense that it's easy to pick up and move about. Run time on battery power is very short when you are stressing the hardware and gaming machines are more likely to experience heat related issues. Just a few things to stress to your friend before spending the money and learning the hard way.

My hard drive recently went on me, so I ordered a new one. I guess I did it kind of hastily, since upon its arrival today, I came to find out that it is an SATA hard drive, while my laptop only furnishes an Ultra-ATA (44 pin) connection. DOH! My question is: does anyone know if an adaptor exists which would allow me to use this new hard drive on my laptop? And if so, any ideas where I might be able to get it? I did find that such adaptors exist for desktop computers, but haven't been able to find anything for the laptop. I've also found the universal USB adaptors, but that won't help either due to the fact that this will be my primary/only drive, and needs to be bootable. Any help here would be appreciated, I'm really trying to avoid returning this thing.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi,
I just got a flip video camera Ultra and shot a few videos. When I plugged the USB cable into my Toshiba laptop (I use windows vista if that matters) and double clicked on the icon in "My computer", it said I had to format the disc. Ive had this happen before with other things, I don't remember what they were though unfortunately. So I clicked "format" and when I did a box popped up alerting me that by formatting the disc, it would erase everything on it.

I cant afford to loose the videos I have on my flip cam. Is there some way to get the videos to upload onto my laptop without formatting the camera or as my computer calls is, the disc? When i read the info that came with the flip video camera, it said that some software was supposed to open and install when I plugged the USB into my laptop, but nothing popped up. I had to open up "my computer" and find the camera icon.

Also just to clarify, this is a Flip Ultra, not an HD.
This is a link to it on amazon:

Hello,
I have an XPS15 laptop (it says Reg Model P56F under the XPS door at the bottom).  This laptop is extremely sensitive to vibrations, hits or jolts to its case.   For example it can be running normally, but if you drop a pen or pencil, onto the keyboard area, it will freeze.  If you have it in your lap and rotate around a chair and it bumps the edge of a desk... it will freeze.  If you bump it into anything, chances are it freezes.  Usually it freezes with a scrambled screen, sometimes portions of the scrambled bits are flickering or moving, like an old NES game that you had to blow on the cartridge before it played.  Sometimes it freezes with the screen going black (but the backlight remains on).   The only way to recover is to hold down the power button until the laptop turns off.  Then you can power it back on and wait 5 minutes at the Windows 10 Please Wait... spinning circle until you can log in again.

I've already had the laptop sent out for this issue.  It came back with an upgraded 4k touch screen.  I love the screen, its such a great, free upgrade.  But the problem persists.  It's not AS sensitive as it was when it had the regular 1920x1080 matte screen.  Before you could drop a pen NEXT to the laptop and that small of a vibration would cause the freeze.  Now you can bang on the table as much as you want, and as long as you don't touch the actual laptop, it remains oper...

My company has issue me a Lenovo T470s and an Ultra Dock to replace my existing equipment. I have two external monitors connected to the docking station with display port cables. The problem that I am experiencing is that if the laptop is docked and the cover is open, I get video on the laptop display and one external monitor. The other external monitor gets no signal and goes to sleep. If I close the laptop cover, I get video on both external monitors. A co-worker told me that this was working as designed and that the solution for getting video on all three monitors was to connect one external monitor to one of the display ports and the other to the DVI port. (He hadn't tested this configuration and is using two display ports with the laptop cover closed.) I tried my coworker's suggestion and got the same result but prior to switching to DVI, I downloaded and installed the latest(?) driver for the HD Graphics 620 adapter from this website (lenovo.com) and that seemed to solve the problem (when using two display ports) but after shutting the laptop down, I had the same issue the next day. What I want, is to have the laptop cover open and still be able to use two external monitors and get optimal resolution on all three monitors. What's the best configuration for achieving this? (Don't guess, like my co-worker. Give me something you've tested and that you can confirm that it works.)

I'm pretty much building the same PC you are. I still need to decide on the videocard, either the 6600Gt or x700pro.

For the motherboard, I've decided to go with DFI. I haven't seen reviews comparing both, but they seem pretty much to deliver the same performances. I like the design of the DFI better, but the main thing that made me choose the DFI was the number of PCI-e slots. The gigabyte model has only 2 PCI-e 1x slots and 1 16x slot, DFI offers 1 1x slot, 1 4x slot and 2 16x slots. So I should be able to use PCI-e parts more easily in the next few years.

Feature wise, gigabyte offers 8 SATA ports(4 on 3.0Gb/s) while DFI has 4 on 3.0Gb/s only. Both seem to offer 10 USB ports and 2 lan connector.

There's not much difference specs wise, it pretty much comes down to who you trust more and price wise.

I have a WDC 40GB 7200 RPM ATA/100 drive than is performing considerably slower than it should under XP (according to SiSoft's Sandra benchmark utility). I installed the latest Intel ATA drivers for my motherboard's chipset (Tyan Tomcat i815T S2080, Intel 82801BA Controller) but see only a marginal improvement. To be certain the DMA33 drive (slave) I have using the same IDE channel isn't slowing it down, I removed it from the system and ran Sandra again to benchmark and got the exact same results.

I've noticed that if I display the IDE Primary controller in Device Manager, it shows that the drive is using DMA Mode 1. I have read elsewhere that ATA/100 is Mode 5, and if I run Intel's Application Accelerator tool it does show the drive as Mode 5. Has anyone had similar problems or can anyone offer any advice on how I can increase my drive speed?

hard disks.

I would advise you to run with S.M.A.R.T. enabled, as this
should then help you get some advance warning of any potential hard disk
problems, whilst you still have time to do something about it, such as
backing up your data before the disk actually fails.

Ultra DMA

This technology for transferring data between a computer's hard disk and memory was developed by Quantum and Intel. The maximum burst rate of an Ultra DMA hard drive is 33.3 MBps. The original DMA (Direct Memory Access) protocol could only transfer data at half that speed. Thanks to Ultra DMA programs can open faster and run more smoothly. This is because Utlra DMA can send more data to the memory in less time than the original DMA.

There are a few things that are bugging me, particularly with the motherboard.

1. Will the KN9 Ultra be able to support the X2 5600+?

2. I've read of a few problems with the KN9. Do I really have to flash the bios when I first start the system? I never had to do that with my other systems (also amd on abit boards). Also, quite a few people have said the same thing about the ASUS board..

3. Do I have to install SATA drivers during the win xp setup? I've read through the online manual and they don't mention to install the drivers. (Note: I am not running or planning to run RAID)

4. Can I install Vista on this setup later? (the board is not mentioned as Vista certified)

5. Is my ram seletion ok? or should I go for the DDR 800s? Also, I've read that on the KN9 I have to readjust the ram voltage settings. Is this true?

6. Lastly, is the power supply I'm thinking of getting going to be able to support the system when I change my video card, or should I get something more powerful?

I really appreciate any help I can get on this.

Thank... Read more

Well it seems my video will not work properly with windows XP. I have a GeForce 2 Ultra. I downloaded the 21.83 drivers for XP and still no luck. I tried playing a video just a few minutes ago and it made my computer restart, when it loaded it said my video card was responsible. Counterstrike will not work also. I can get into the menus and what not but when I go to join a game or start a game it goes blank and freezes. Can someone please help me. thank you.

Here is my problem.
I have 2 hard drives in my system, a Maxtor 40gb and a Seagate 80gb.
The Maxtor is set to master, Seagate set to slave, the maxtor is a Ultra DMA6 and the Seagate is UDMA5. When I was installing windows, they both read as a 6/5, once windows was booted up, they are coming up as UDMA2. We've played with the jumpers, and right now it is on Cable Select, and we've gone into the settings and changed everything to where it SHOULD be.
If I unplugged the Seagate, the Maxtor booted as a 6, and windows detected it as a 6. Once the Seagate was back in, it changed to a UDMA2.
The cables are in right, and such. Why won't it boot up as the proper DMA mode?

What I'm running is a;
ASUS K8V-SE motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3400+
Seagate Baracuda 80GB 7200 RPM ATA100
Maxtor 40GB 5400 RPM ATA133
 

A:Ultra DMA problem

I don't have any answers for you, just a question -- have you tried putting the Seagate as master on the secondary? Does it make a difference?

I have been on this forum for a long time trying to figure out. what the hell is wrong with my PC. First off my computer was home-made:

Antec Mid-Tower
AMD Athlon 64bit processor
1 GB DDR RAM
Radeon 800XL GFX Card
Glacier 500WATT Powersupply
Windows XP Professional
10/100 Ethernet card
Dell 17inch Monitor
Saitek Keyboard
Logitech Mouse

Now this computer we built 4 years ago. I have sprayed out the inside with a dust can and made sure everything was connected. It first started while playing Guild Wars..the mouse froze and then the entire computer froze. Then after restarting it would freeze on booting up..then a screen would come up saying it was detecting arrays. I reformated this pc so many times. Recently I just did it and when trying to install windows updates and my VGA drivers it kept freezing. Now the powersupple is fine and compatable with everything. I even left the side of my pc open so overheating is out. I use no P2P software and dont even download any porn on the computer. I use it for work, games and web surfing. I have no idea why the hlel it freezes and even after i reformat it problems arise...i dont want to take my computer to geek squad either because that would annoy me ha
 

A:Ultra Problem

I read a review of your power supply and some problems with the fan speed control were mentioned. The PSU fan would quit working altogether. Is your PSU fan still working? If not, it could be overheating.

I recently got my hands on Nero 7 Ultra, and I'm not too sure how to use it. I have several episodes of a show on my hard drive and I want to know how to burn them onto a DVD, including a menu and the episodes divided into chapters. Anyone proficient in using Nero wanna help me out

BTW they are all in .avi format, i heard that I have to convert them so they work on the DVD.
 

A:Using Nero 7 Ultra

Use the NeroVision program that comes bundled in Nero 7

Add each video file to it, and follow the prompts. It will do the conversion for you. I trust that you obtained these episodes of a show by legal means - because Techspot doesn't condone piracy.

Hey all
Just bought this beast of a mobo MSI KT3 Ultra 2....great board except I can not get it to run my Athlon XP 1600+ @ 133 fsb. Everytime I set the cpu frequency to 133 it gets past the post ok and reboots right before the xp logon screen.
I'm frustrated!
Does any body have any ideas on what i can do.

specs
athlon xp 1600 +
msi kt3 ultra 2
400w psu
3dfx voodoo 5500 pci
128 mb ddr
ms xp pro
 

A:MSI KT3 Ultra 2 = Big Problem

well my processor runs kinda hot but it ran that hot before I changed my mobo.....I just invested in a new thermal take volcano, i should be getting it on monday....
I dont think that my psu i have is a very good one....it was one of those came with the case no name psu's.....I think that might be the problem.....
when i set the cpu frequency to 100mhz my cpu only runs at 1050mhz.... yeah its stable but its not what i paid for ....
I did set the bios settings to their defaults and i only changed the
cpu frequency and I get the same problem......
I guess what i need to look for now is a new power supply.....anybody have any ideas

An Ultra ATA drive will work with a regular IDE/ADA controller, right?

Thanks,

A:Solved: Ultra ATA vs. IDE

Yes. ATA and EIDE (Enhanced IDE) are, for all practical purposes, the same thing.
