Q: Something I find good, which I think game enthusiats will find even better!

Whilst browsing the internet i came across some software named:

'FRAPS' www(.)fraps(.)com

I find this very useful as it is a piece of software that will tell you what the FPS (frames per second) are in any game/software, I find it very useful and thought i would share this information with you.

Please reply to let me know what u think/any other things interesting.

Preferred Solution: Something I find good, which I think game enthusiats will find even better!

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.)

Hey guys,

For my birthday, in one month, I want to get a new pair of floorstanding speakers for my 5.1 home audio system for my machine. The ones I have now are shot, and actually on loan from my cousin :rolleyes:

I will be a bit strapped for cash, so under $250 would be optimal.

My first discovery would be Sony's SSMF750H. Etronics has them for $233 shipped. How do these sound? pun intended.

Anyone have any other reccomendations? Thanks in advance

Specs: 1) Intel (AMD would work but I prefer Intel) quad core. 2) *750 Gig - 1 T hard drive. 3) *4 to 8 Gig RAM. 4) Windows 8 (that comes with a windows 8 installation disk). 5) Built in webcam & microphone, but also with the ability to connect external units. 6) *17" or larger monitor. 7) *RW Data disk drive/CD drive that allows me to re-use the disks (primarily DVD disks) (i.e., one that I can write to the disk and then if I need to, erase & write over it). 8) Powerful graphics drive. 9) *Wireless LAN. 10) Standard software inclusions. 11) New, not rebuilt or refurbished. 12) High quality fans/cooling system.

Now the hard part: *I need all of this to be under $500 (after mail in rebate if absolutely necessary).

I would prefer one that has a more or less reputable name brand.
I realize that I might have to do without some of my choices, I put an asterisk (*) in front of the ones that are most important to me.

Part of the reason I need the 750 G to 1 T hard drive is that I use it for 3 main purposes: I do part time karaoke/dance shows so I have a large music library, I am disabled and therefore also use it for a lot of movies and art work (i.e., Corel draw, etc.), as well as a lot of gaming (i.e., WOW, Tibia, Runescape, etc.). Which, as you probably know are three or four of the most space intensive applications. My disability is also why I need the larger screen. I would love a touch screen, but seriously doubt I could find one with all of the other things ... Read more

Hello,

I recently had an external hard drive fail on me. At first I thought I it was a hardware problem that I'd be able to fix. I tired installing it in a new enclosure & as a 2nd (Slave) drive in my computer. Unfortunatelt neither of these seemed to work a both times I recieved an error message saying that "the disk in drive H is not formatted. Do you wish to format now?" Obviously I clicked on no as doing so would mean I'd lose all my files (about 60GB of photo & video files). Plus it didn't make sense to me that my drive would need to be formatted as it was already formatted before I put it in. Unfortunately as nothing seems to work to allow me access to this drive I have no chose but to fomat this drive & attempt a recovery of the lost files. This is why I'm posting here. I'm hoping that I can find a recomendation for a good, & not to expensive, recovery program. If at all possible I'm looking for one with the features listed people. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Plus if you think you can solve my formatt problem I'd be greatly endebited to you. Thanks in advance!

Here is the thing. I have an HP 15 notebook. Don't know why they call it a notebook it is a laptop. It is running win10. Now the only internet I have is to hotspot it to a Verizon phone. Nice phone Moto G4 play. Trouble is with speed. Verizon gives me 2 gigs of HS data then, after that, I have what Verizon calls " always on". I call it "pay us $10.00 @ gig or we do this to you". You know how it goes. You got 180 MB to download so you start it and ( cause it is so slow) you go to bed. Next day you look and it downloaded 178.06 MB and quit the download. No way to restart it you just have to try it again, and again, and ... Well, you know.

Anyway is there a download manager that can help. One that can deal with the pathetic little dribble of data that is Verizon's always on and can restart a download when the other computer kicks the connection?

I am running Vista on my computer, and the virtual machine is currently using xp, which is the main operating system this game is made for.

I am confused as to why this happens, as I have already captured the drive so i can use the cd to install it, but for some reason it won't let me play the game, or get any further than this.

Any help would be nice (or if not, if anybody has any additional information about gettin this game to work on vista) as I have tried this on numerous occasions.

Thanks

Many years ago, back when I was in college, my roommate had an Atari 800 with a ton of cool games. One that I remember, which was quite fun, was a game where you flew a helicopter to collect buried treasures. The top portion of the screen was sky, the bottom was dirt, and the treasures were buried in the dirt. The helicopter could drop bombs straight down, left or right, or at a diagonal left or right, but could not fire up.

Some of the hazards included a plane flying across the top of the screen, which would drop dirt clods to fill up your holes. If a dirt clod hit you, you would get blown up. If the dirt clods blocked your exit, you couldn't get out.

Also, there were rocks making it difficult to get straight to the treaures, and water pockets, which if you blasted open accidently, would fill all the holes with water (using semi-realistic "pouring" rules)

Finally, as the levels progressed, there was more dirt, and less sky to work with. Oh, and you had to return to base to refuel occasionally. Anyway, has anyone heard of a current incarnation of such a game for the PC? or perhaps knows the name of it to help me find it?

Thanks!

Hi all,

Bit of a blast from the past but I really cant think of anywhere else to look!

When I was at Primamry school many years ago We had one of the RM Nimbus machines with things like Logo (shape drawing thing) and other bits and pieces.

One other game we had was called "Martello Tower" or "Tower", this was a game where you would navigate your way around an old Tower and try and get clues and solve puzzels and progress through the game. There were also these annoying guards that would make you go back to the start of the game!

It was basically just a blank screen and it might say "You are standing in front of a gate", you would then type instructions, such things as "Turn left, Open box, Open gate" and so on!

My question is (and theres prob very little chance that anyone knows what Im going on about!), is there anyway I can re-live this game? Does anyone know if these old games and applications can be Ported and run on modern day machines? Does anyone have an old RM Nimbus!? Basically, how can I play this game again!!!!?

Any help, or ideas would be very much appreciated! I did email RM but they didnt know the game I was talking about (this was a while ago so Ive emailed again today!).

Many thanks!

I've come to the realization that my 3 Megabit internet, while decent for my everyday needs, is still pretty crappy. Online videos are getting higher and higher def now, and I would like a better speed for downloading in general.

The problems are I don't want to go past $55 a month, and I've tried this before. My ISP is ATT (DSL internet) and I tried to upgrade my internet to 6 Megs years ago. It actually worked okay for a year, but then frequent disconnects started happening. After 6 tech visits, it was ascertained I was too far from the ATT office or something for the 6 Meg service. Funny, I was told different when I signed up. Anyway, I can't go to 6 meg on regular ATT DSL.
I WOULD try Uverse, but I've heard some bad things there. Plus, it's a new service that probably has new service fees.
I don't know about cable; the only provider in my area that does it, it seems, is Comcast. I don't trust them that much (had them for cable tv way back), and I've heard that cable internet in general is inconsistent in its rates anyway. If I could help it, I'd like to stay on DSL. If, however, cable at its worst speeds beats the DSL I have now at a decent price, I'd be willing to consider it.

So, etching out this whole gamut leaves me without options. Should I try Uverse? Should I try Cable? I don't know, so I'm looking for a site or two that will help me navigate th... Read more

A:Are there sites that can find me good deals on internet service?

AT&T UVerse is DSL. You can pick from DSL, Cable, Satellite, or wireless. That's about it. If you live in a big city, you might be able to get 4G wireless at a good price.

I'm in need of a new video card! I really don't know anything about computer hardware, so you'll have to help me out.

I am a gamer, and my video card sucks (I have a GeForce4 440), and I can't play any new games such as Battlefield 2. Even older games such as Battlefield 1942 and America's Army quit in the middle of gameplay all the time.

I have been making money recently, and can now afford a very good video card. I am willing to spend $200 - $325 for a video card. My computer is good enough for a good card (at least I think it is).

I have an Asus A7V8X-X motherboard with 512 MB ram. My CPU processor is AMD XP 2500 OEM (just as good as the pentium 4.)

I was thinking about getting the famous Geforce 7800. Is this a good idea? Will I need more ram? Will it fit into my case (ATX XP400)? Also, what are all these different types I'm seeing (7800GS, 7800GT, 7800GTX)? What are the differences?

Thanks.

For a anti ransomware

Ransomware Defender

I think it's too costly
But couldn't find any reviews or information
 

A:Ransomware Defender , can't find much information about it, too costly is it any good?

Don't waste your money for these antiransomware tools that maybe work... but just in the best of cases.
It is my personal opinion of course but with that money you can buy a full AV as Kaspersky, for example.

If you want a good alternative for free:

RansomFree by Cybereason: Free Ransomware Protection

Hi, I just bought a new-to-me IBM ThinkPad R51, with Windows XP, and a Wifi signal is detected. The green Wifi symbol is lit up at the bottom of the monitor, and the icon says "Signal strength: Good". But when I try to pull up Google on IE v6, it says Page Cannot Be Displayed. My phone and other 2 computers connect through Wifi just fine.
 
I have no idea what the first thing to try would be, but I'm willing to go through however much troubleshooting I need to, if anyone may be able to help me get my laptop to go online. I would appreciate it so much!

A:ThinkPad says Signal Strength: Good, but IE Cannot Find Server

What version of IE is installed?
 
Are all critical updates installed?
 
Many websites no longer will tolerate IE 8 in XP...I use Firefox on those websites while continuing to use IE 8 where I can.
