How to know Athlon clock speeds?

Q: How to know Athlon clock speeds?

I want to purchase a new computer soon, and would like to buy one with an Athlon processor.

I have a number of software applications I will want to install on this new machine, but the system requirement are always listed in terms of Pentium processors and Ghz.

How can I know if a certain Athlon processor is comparable to a certain Pentium version?

(For example: I know I will need the equivalent of a P4 - 2.4 Ghz.)


Preferred Solution: How to know Athlon clock speeds?

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.)

A: How to know Athlon clock speeds?

An Athlon XP 2400+ would be equivilant to a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz.

An Athlon's model number is to what clock speed its compareable on a Pentium 4. So an Athlon64 3200+ will give you roughly the same performance as an Intel Pentium 4 running at 3000Mhz.

I was just curious, I'm sort of a noob for this kind of stuff but I was looking through CPUs and I found an AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (2.16 GHz) and an Intel 3.0 GHz processor. I have a friend who has an AMD 3000+ and another with an Intel 3.0 GHz, whenever we play games, they always finish loading at exactly the same time. Does the 2.16 GHz clock speed on an AMD mean something different than on an Intel processor? I mean there is clearly a difference between 3.0 GHz and 2.16 GHz (3.0 - 2.16 = 0.84 GHz EUREKA!) so why do they load at the same speed? All the other specs on their comps including video card, internet connection and RAM are exactly the same.

The infamous GiGabyte K8 N SLI Pro MoBo.

How frustrating this is ..

I found the perfect combination of Ram timings and settings for this chip to get a really nice stable overclock yet the bios is a bummer!

HTT @ 4x
I have 2 gig of DDR 400 ram in Dual Mode @ 3337
CPU set to 250
Multiplyer set to 10x
Ram multiplyer set to 2/1.66

Now with this set up this should get a really superb group of settings with the HTT running @ 1000 (x2) 2000Mhz
Ram = 415Mhz
Cpu = 2.5GiG
I adjusted the Voltage of the cpu to 45
The ram I set to +.2
The HTT was left at current voltage as with these timings it is running as normal at the normal frequency..

Yet the bios will not allow what seems here to be a perfectly balanced overclock

The only way that the settings will post is when I set the HTT to 3xtimings but that reduces the HTT fequency to 750

Now although the computer runs well at these settings after a while playing a video game it will hang and get stuck in a sound loop.

I have tried downloading older Bios but It makes no difference and despite all of the settings in the bios being on manual settings it will not allow me to post a 4x multiplyer for the HTT link.

Is there anyone out there that knows how I can get this to set at 250 cpu clock with the settings that I have listed?

A:AMD Athlon 4200+ Over Clock Question?

More than one way to skin a cat!

Right sometimes you just have to try different things to and think differently to get a good overclock!

I have now got my machine running schweet @ 2520 Mhz..

I changed the frequency of the CPU to 280
I changed the multiplyer for the cpu to a 9x multiplyer giving 9x 280 = 2520
I changed the HTT multiplyer to 3x = 3x280x2 = HTT of 1680 Mhz
I adjusted the ram timings to 3 3 3 8 and they are running @ 420Mhz
This gives a data transfer rate of 6300gb/s during a read process (which is very nice on pc3200 ram.

The cpu voltage was raised from standard to 1.4volts

So far everything appears to stable as anything and under 100% load during sin julia testing etc the core temps peak @59'C which is great. Now all that I have to do is invest in a better cooling system and all will be well indeed..

Hi all, i badly need some advice
Ive got a Gigabyte GA-7VRXP (Rev. 2) mobo
Athlon 2400xp
512 pc2700 (2x256) and a
TNT riva2 graphics card(which is complete sh*t - i know)
Ive had alot of problems running this system in a stable way. I find that i can use a clock multiplier of 17.5 (9.5 on the mobo's jumpers) to achieve stability but this means that the processor only registers as a 2200xp. Changing the host clock speed seems to just lead to system failures. -All this is the processor running at 100mhz fsb - i know it should be at 133mhz but this is even less stable
How can i achieve a stable clock speed of 2gz -2400xp (133 x 15) - the correct clock speed????
I would appriciate any contribution, thanks

Hey, just tweaking with my BIOS settings here. I was wondering if there was a way to tell what kind of clock speeds my motherboard can handle. All I remember is that I have a MSI. What I'm trying to figure out is if I can max out my CPU Bus Clock and AGP PCI Clock speeds any. Right now my CPU is set at 200 MHZ and the AGP PCI is set at 66.33/33.33. Thanks for any replies.

I recently built a new PC, and Nvidia Monitor shows my 9800GTX bus speeds as:

GPU core (3D): 300.000 MHz
GPU memory: 100.000 MHz

This is confusing to me because they seem lower than what the 9800 should have (a 738 MHz core clock is what it should be).

However, my performance in-game is still quite good, so I'm assuming that the two cards ARE operating at their factory clock speeds - and that Nvidia is just monitoring them wrongly? Could the mistake be related at all to the SLI steup?

Thanks for any help.

A:My 9800GTX+ clock speeds are off...

Those are idle clocks...Try running Furmark or AtiTool stability test, and they will be 738 and... 1100? As well as they go up when you game. Whenever the card is not really in use, it goes down to save energy.

My laptop been showing unusually high clock speeds on HW monitor recently. I have not overclocked when I bought it but I'm aware that the i7 4710hq has turboboost capabilities to 3.5Ghz. Just recently I have seen the clock speeds reach up to 3.7Ghz which had not happened in the past year I had the laptop (the speeds continuosly reach this point even after the first day). My concerns are :1. Will these high speeds cause any harm whatsoever?? 2. Any ideas what could have caused this to happen all of a sudden?

I have recently purchased the abovementioned graphics card, and have a query.

When I view the clock speeds in Catalyst Control Centre (in the Graphics Hardware tab) it reports the core at 500Mhz and the memory at 594Mhz. This is at odds with the cards specification, which states that they should be 625Mhz and 900Mhz respectively.

Interestingly, under the ATi Overdrive facility (which I have not used at all) it says that the core is 'currently' at 500Mhz, but the 'requested' speed is 621Mhz. Similarly, the memory is said to be at 594Mhz, with a requested speed of 900Mhz.

So my question is, am I just seeing the slower speeds which the graphics card runs at when not under load (ie. on the desktop) when it is actually using its full speed when I am gaming? Or do I need to engage the Overdrive facility for the card to use its full power?

Currently the Overdrive facility is greyed out, with a big 'Unlock' button waiting to be pushed.

Thanks in advance for any help,

What is the safest, most stable and highest clock speed this CPU can go up to? I just figured out how to overclock it, and I understand that it can be dangerous and must be done only by a few notches at a time. Before I had it clocked at 2.11 GHz (Original) but now I have it clocked at 2.12 GHz. What is the maximum clock speed it can go up to?

A:What is the maximum clock speed an AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 4000+ can go up to?

I have taken one of those up to 2.4Ghz, but I didn't go any higher. Before you overclock, also make sure your heatsink will be able to handle cooling it.

And remember that all CPU's are different, just because somebody can get theirs up to 5Ghz doesn't mean someone else with the same CPU can.

A:Want to over clock on my pc, amd athlon 64 2800+ with asus k8vse deluxe more specs

Before you attempt to overclock your pc you must think about heat!! If you only have a stock cpu heat sink and fan then you wont get very far.

As you increase processor speed you increase heat output, and that needs to be dealt with.

I just received my 9700 Pro that I ordered this past week and I have a few problems. The default clock speeds on this thing is 324/290. What is wrong with that? The 9700 Pro's default clock speeds are suppose to be 325/310. The site I got it from advertised those clock speeds but that is not what I have on mine. This pisses me off for one.

Anyway. I will be contacting them about this Monday, but is it alright to set my memory to 310 anyway?

A:Radeon 9700 Pro Clock Speeds Problem

Putting together specs for a mini-PC (I need one for travel - that will go onto a plane as hand luggage, as I spent most of the year abroad working) for gaming, MS Flight Simulator X & FS9, to be precise. Basic specs I am probably going with:

ASUS® H97I-PLUS: Mini-ITX, LG1150, USB 3.0, SATA 6GBs

Intel® Core i7-4790k (4.0GHz) 8MB Cache




Windows 7 x64 Premium

But as for the RAM? 16GBs is not so much of an extra layout over 8GBs and 2133MHz RAM not so much more than 1600MHz. However that M/B doesn't support 2133MHz RAM and to get one that does adds some £100 sterling to the overall cost of the PC. So with that M/B I'd get:

Question is, would that be false economy?? It's quite an increase in price and my feeling is MS FS will run great with the 1600MHz RAM, but any input would be welcome.

Hello! I am a happy owner of Lenovo p50, but i got couple of questions. Firstly, Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHz should have a maximum clock speed of 3.7ghz, but thats not the case. The higher i see it goes is ~3.4ghz. I use Piriform Speccy. I tried some CPU stress tests etc, but the result is around 3.4ghz max clock. The Second question is why my bios menu is all greyed and i cannot change any setting. Yesterday i upgraded the BIOS to the latest N1EET60W (1.33 ) and today i tried to visit the BIOS to check some CPU related settings, but i found that almost every setting is locked and i cannot access it. It might be a security mechanism, but before i enter the menu i got promted to scan my fingerprint so i guess that should be it.

Okay, so I am starting this thread here seeing as how the topic of the old one no longer applies to this situation. I jumped ahead of myself trying to overclock this CPU which made me question the frequencies and voltages which are supposed to be set automatically by the motherboard. I am having a tough time understanding all this. I will post links to the exact parts I am using so whoever is keen enough to try to help will know what we're dealing with.

Motherboard: MSI A88X-G45 Gaming
CPU: AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4 Turbo) Black Edition
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline DDR3 2133 MHz PC3 17000 1.6V

CPU-Z Screenshots

After doing some reading in regards to overclocking, I have found out some details which are totally incorrect in my case. For starters, the FSB to DRAM Frequency Ratio, from what I read, is supposed to be 1:1, some reported slightly higher ratios (3:10 or something similar) but CPUZ is showing 3:32 which sounds absurd. Also, it's reporting the RAM as PC3-12800 at 800 MHz and voltage at 1.5(?). I haev Intel XMP enabled on the motherboard, and the motherboard reports memory speed in BIOS at DDR-2133MHz. Can someone analyze the above shot and information and clue me in as to what is wrong and what needs to be done? I would really appreciate it because I am baffled. I have no clue what the CPU-NB frequency and voltages are for, so I don't want to mess with something I don't know anything about.

Anyway, any and all help is much appre... Read more

I am preparing to swap my CPU for an AMD 4200+ X2 dual core and add another gig of ram, using the exact same Corsair memory (2 x 512 MB DIMMs) currently installed in my system (see my system configuration below). I need some direction as info overload has me uncertain about order of the steps to do this as well as a good bit of information from various users of this particular mobo indicating that I am in for a lot of problems, which I would prefer to avoid if at all possible.

The manual that came with the board does not offer the info I need and unfortunately, the Forum and the Technical Form pages on the ASUS website will not display due to problems with their website, thus restricting vital information from me. So, I was unable to find help through those avenues and I am currently awaiting a response to an email I sent to the ASUS tech support site.

I need help by having the following questions answered, plus any additional information that can be provided is certainly welcomed.

Here are my questions:
(1) I have read numerous complaints that this mobo is not actually designed for the X2 CPU and that it was just an afterthought since the box has an X2 sticker on it rather than having it actually printed on the box.

The power consumption is within acceptable limits.

The faster of those two uses older 0.13micron building process, and is cheaper because of that.If you are on a budget and not overclocking, get the cheaper one, because it is faster.

Hi. I was over at a friends house and found out that his computer is FASTER than mine. It was faster than my old one, but haven't used it since I built my new one so was unaware how fast it is. I'm baffled why mine is so much slower than his. Mine isn't slow, his is just freakin fast.

At my fastest time [which is still slower than his] I only had MSN and XP Pro and SP2 crap running and his was still faster. His gets bogged down easier though, for example now I have [email protected], Outlook, WMP, IE, Word, and LimeWire running, and his doing that would be a little less responsive than mine, but overall, his is still faster. I didn't run any real tests, just observations on programs opening and closing and such. Half Life 2 and Garrysmod both load MUCH faster for him, and if I minimize them, it takes forever to get back, but his are instant.

Recently in the past few days my load speed for webpages has been sporadically terrible. Sometimes it will be fine, but other times it will take absolutely ages to load the page and then sometimes not even load it at all, and not load pictures, etc, as well as online streaming, which has always been fine for me and something I used to do often with no lag, has been lagging and buffering nonstop.

But meanwhile, even when the load speeds and stream speeds are horrible, my ping and general internet performance outside of browser-based things seems to be fine. I can see constant ping on one program and it has always reacted when my internet is poor, spiking high or just generally showing high numbers, but it always stays low, and I can see just based on reaction speed on internet programs as well as experience no lag whatsoever on online games that the internet speed seems to be fine outside of browser-based activities. I have tried different browsers, and this problem persists on my laptop as well as my new and fairly decent PC so I don't think it is a computer problem.

I've even tried booting into safe mode with networking and loading pages and when it is bad it remains bad even in safe mode, failing to load even pictures on some websites.

My computer has extremely slow download speeds, upload speeds are fine. Ping is always at ~10-20ms. (to Google) The problem has nothing to do with, my ISP, my router, my type of connection. I know this for a fact.

I've tried multiple network adapters. USB WiFi, integrated WiFi, connecting through another PC via ethernet, they all give the same result.

I'm guessing this is a problem with some software on the PC itself, as it seems to not be a hardware problem.

All other devices on the network have perfectly fine speeds, including Ethernet and WiFi connected devices.
I also cannot connect this PC to Ethernet, would take hours.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

My new HP laptop 15-ac114nx [Intel Core i3 @ 2.00GHz, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD] running Windows 10 64 bit has a serious wifi problem. Ever since I have bought the laptop Wifi internet speeds seem to be comparitively very slow on battery than when plugged in. I have a 20 Mbps connection which provides a reasonable browsing and download speed on all my other devices. The issue with this laptop is that when running on battery and connected using wifi even opening a webpage such as facebook or youtube takes an awfully lot of time lets say like 5 to 10 seconds and sometimes much more, whereas if I do the same with the power cord plugged in, the web pages appear as soon as I click their links(i.e. Vey Fast/Instantaneously).  To add further clarity to the situation I tested the download speed of a particular file while running on battery and with the cord plugged in. I started the download of a file [Java Development Kit ~ 160MB] using chrome with the cord plugged in and navigated to the chrome downloads page to monitor the download progress. The download speed was about 1000-1200 Kbps. Midway through the download I removed the power cord. Immediately the speeds dropped down to 20-30Kbps and sometimes even much lower.  After approximately 10 seconds I plugged the cord back in and wow the download speed went back up to approx a 1000 Kbps. After sometime I removed the cord again and as a result the speed dropped down again. Plugged the cord again and it rose back up. NOw this c... Read more

Hi there, i was wondering if you could help me this problem i've been having for the past 3 days now. I recently downgraded from Vista to XP, and ever since then i've had download speeds of 5kb/s or less. Before now, i couldn't get onto anywebsites because it would time out, things like www.yahoo.com would take about 5 minutes to open properly. I did notice that when i was asked which partition to install XP on there was 2 sub partitions on the C drive for some reason. Anyway long story short, i managed to fix it by using the format option from booting the pc with the vista installation disk, then put xp in etc.
So, browsing speeds are normal for me, but i can't get on my online games because it just times out due to the slow download speeds, and anything large in size takes extremely long to download even with internet download manager, I've been waiting 10+ minutes for windows live messenger to finish downloading and installing and it still hasn't done so.

I am running a dsl Westell Wirespeed through Southwestern Bell Telephone in Houston, TX. My internet surfing speed is in upper range of speed, but when I try to download anything it is so slow it usually times out. I am using Win98 on an AMD 1.13gig Athlon. I tried to remove IE6.0 and was unable to do so. I would reinstall IE6.0, but to download the program is impossible at this slow speed. I hooked up a dialup in another machine and at 28.8, it runs rings around the download on this machine. Have also recently been unable to even download MSN game software.

A:IE6.0 & SP1 slooooow download speeds Able to surf net at fast speeds on DSL otherwise

Sounds like an ISP problem. Have you contaced your provider?

Hey, I'm having really slow speeds surfing the internet, watching videos on sites like youtube, and downloading files. So i went to Speedtest.net and found that my download speeds are only 1.3 mbps!! my upload is fine, around 5 mbps. I dunno what the issue could be! I am wirelessly connected to the router, but the signal strength is fine. Attatched is a screenshot from xirrus.

A:Slow Download Speeds, Upload Speeds fine

And your download speed with an ethernet connection to the router? Directly to the modem? What speed are you supposed to be getting?

They have the same clock speed, same cache, same interface, and virtually the same performance in benchmarks... (the cores are different, thats it [and only on some models])
So whats the difference justifying the 200-250 Dollar price break????
Also, the Process may be different... is 130 nm or 90 nm better? and why?

If i switch from the athlon 3000 to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 will i have to reinstall windows? if so is there any way of avoiding this?

A:Switching from athlon 3000 to AMD Athlon 64 X2

You'll have to change motherboards too as the processors you mention fit in different sockets. Then it is advisable to reload and start from scratch due to different setup/drivers for the motherboard.

I am trying to compare between two video cards that are very similar, and I'd like some other opinions on which would be the better purchase. The differences are subtle but I am not experienced enough to know how large the effective payout difference will be.

The first card is here:

It is a SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100273L Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card. The Core Clock is at 650 MHz, the Memory Clock is at 1000 MHz. The final price would be $102.

The second card is here:

It is a HIS H485FM1GH Radeon HD 4850 1GB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card. The Core Clock is at 625 MHz, the Memory Clock is at 1986MHz. The final price would be $109.


My comparison so far is that Card 1 has 25 more MHz Core, but 986 Mhz less Memory Clock.
Warranties are the same.
I cannot truly tell, but it seems like the fan on card 1 is less robust than card 2. Can someone confirm this?
As far as my research has led me, the manufacturers themselves are not very different.
GRAM, SPU's, etc., are all identical between the cards. The main difference is in the two clock speeds.

The most major question is this: will a gain of 25MHz in the core clock be more beneficial to high-end gaming with a loss of 986 MHz in Memory Clock? My gut feeling i... Read more

I'm havving issues with a brand new Precision 3620 workstation.
The processor is an Intel 6700K  4Ghz base clock and 4.2Ghz turbo clock.
1) For any kind single threaded task it always runs at 4Ghz and never at 4.2Ghz.
How can I make it run at turbo speed (bios is set so it should) ?
2) For multithreading tasks using all cores (also using SIMD) the clock drops to 3.6Ghz
Using Intel power gadget I measure 60Watt power consumption and 54 degrees C.
(Test is Prime95 using blend mode test, so not max heat small FFT test)

I find this clock behavior quite unacceptable for a PC sold as workstation.
Using the Intel Extreme Tuning tool I can fix issue 2) by rasing the Processor Core IccMax from 92A to 110A.  This indicates wrong CPU setting in the bios, but these hidden settings are not visible to be changed.
Issue 1) I can not fix.
Is there any way to correct these issues ?

i have a printer shared on a windows xp professional machine.... when i try to connect to it i get this message : server clock is not synchronized with the primary domain controller clock

i have googled and the results indicated that i should check the clocks to ensure they are all synchronized on all three computers involved: the computer the share is on, the computer attempting to connect to it and the domain controller.

however the problem remains.. can anyone assist?

And old Windows problem has finally reared its ugly head on my system: "clock drift". My Windows clock keeps losing time. About 1 minute by the end of the day.

My CMOS clock is fine and is NOT losing time. I shut my PC off at night, automatically correcting the Windows clock when I restart the next morning. But my scheduled tasks later in the day will start late as the Windows clock slowly loses time.

I've edited the Registry to update "Internet Time" daily instead of weekly, but the time of day that the clock updates fluctuates, sometimes updating in the morning (which is unhelpful.)

"Clock drift" is a problem that has been around since Windows-3.0. As the number of background tasks grows, the software clock has a tendency to lose time.

Since my CMOS clock is just fine and and polling the Internet NTS (Network Time Server) sometimes fails (about 15% of the time), I was wondering if there was a simple way to automatically resync the Windows clock with my CMOS clock?


A:Clock Drift driving me nuts. Any way to sync to CMOS clock?

Here's a link to a constantly updated list of NIST servers.

NIST Internet Time Service

If you search for your existing host in Regedit and substitute one from my list for the preset one you should also stumble upon a registry setting to increase the frequency of synchronisation.

It goes without saying you should back up your registry first, as a safety precaution

Ordinarily the download speeds are approximately five times faster than the upload. I have a backup computer which is an Acer netbook that has the reverse situation. My speeds when tested were 1.25 mbs for download, and 5.6 mbs for upload.

Does anyone have any idea as to what's going on her?

Hi all, this is a doozy that I can't seem to solve.

When I have my laptop hooked up to my router via ethernet, my download speeds are around 15mbps. When I'm wireless (and three rooms away from the router), it's around 18mbps. Obviously it's not a huge difference, but I know that there SHOULD be a huge difference between the two, but in the other direction. What could be limiting my wired capabilities?

For the record, the ethernet cables I'm using may not exactly be ideal. For one, an ethernet cable connects my router to the modem, and that's an old ethernet cable that came with an Xbox 360 back in 2008. The ethernet cable I was using to connect the laptop to the router is the same kind from the same scenario. They say Category 5 on them, so I imagine they aren't Cat5e or anything. Wondering if an aged, slower cable connecting the router and modem would just be hindering my speeds overall, plus the question about wired being slower than wireless as opposed to significantly faster.

A:My wireless speeds are faster than my wired speeds!

I know that there SHOULD be a huge difference between the twoClick to expand...

Why? What's your ISP's advertized download speed?

An aging ethernet cable could be a problem. The only way to know is to compare with a known good cable.

I just cant figure this one out.I have verizon fios and am suposed to get 15 mpbs download and 5 mbps upload speed.

But I am getting 2mbps download speed and about 18 mbps upload speeds on my desktop pc.The verizon guy came here and said the router configuration was correct and so was the ethernet cable.He plugged the cable to his laptop and was getting download speeds of about 30mbps so something is wrong with my computer only but I cant figure what.

I removed mcafee as I read it could be a problem.Now I have microsoft security suite but it did not help.I have removed Ipv6 too but that has not helped either.

Thanks appreciate your help.

PS: OS is windows vista

A:High Upload speeds but low download speeds

are you sure you haven't got your upload and download speeds backwards? your uploads should be low and downloads high.

if you switched those it would be correct looking.

Hello, I have a brand new HP Probook 430 G3 which is working and performing just great, the only problem is its strange cooling fan sound. The problem is that it speeds up and speeds down constantly without any visible reason. (Please note that its not a normal behavior when coolers change speed based on higher cpu temperature). The interval between speeding up and down is less that a second and it is constant. So just imagine when cooler runs on higher speed it's not smooth as supposed to be but kind of waving/floating.  I'm not sure with speeds laptos fans run, but if visualize the problem it will look something as illustrated below    Steps taken: Updated the BIOS to the latest version - didn't help. Turnet the "Fan Always on while AC Power" - sounds same. Can anybody suggest anything to diagnose the fan issue? Mayble there are some fan diagnostincs tools available or something else what can help.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi have a big problem at the school that i work at:

all of a sudden, the network has fallen over.

what is happening is some of our clients will authenticate on one server, some clients will authenticate on the other server and some wont authenticate at all and produce an error message stating that

"There is a time difference between the client and server and is unable to log you on"

the odd thing is, the servers can not see each other. if we go to my network places on say our admin server, and try to connect to the pupil server it will say

"the servers clock is not syncoronizing with the primary domain controllers clock"

If we try to force a replication on the servers, we get the message

"there is a time difference between the client and server"

i think we have established that is a problem with the time settings on the server but dont know where to start

any ideas!!!

any help to websites or info will be very useful

Your help is appreciated
