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.)

Dunjiadashen,
 
I checked with the product manager for the P series and wanted to pass along the following information:
 

Lenovo does not offer the 1545 or 1575 on P50. This is because both of these CPUs are paired with the Iris Pro graphics which requires a different thermal assembly than Lenovo designed for the ThinkPad P50. 
While those CPUs are slightly faster (0.1GHz) than the CPUs paired with Iris graphics (P530), the trade-off to accommodate the bigger TDP didn?t make sense as the vast majority of Lenovo customers ask for discrete graphics and really don?t want/use the Intel integrated graphics in the first place.
The 1535 is available in the US, but it?s not showing on the US website for Lenovo.com.  The product manager has sent a note to that team to get that CPU posted on the site so customers can build with it. Rather than wait, feel free to call in and work directly with a Lenovo representative to spec out a 1535 system. In the US you can reach Lenovo sales for ThinkPad Mobile Workstations at 1-855-253-6686.

 
I hope this information assists you with your purchasing decision.

I have been having issues with updating Bios and drivers with my 7510 since January.
It has Xeon E3 1535 cpu; 64GB 2100Mhz DDR4 ECC; Quadro m2000m and Samsung 960 PRO NVME M.2 SSD
It started after a BIOS update from Windows Update failed. I had added 4x 2400MHz ECC DDR4 to the machine and the new BIOS supported only 2100MHz So it rolled back by itself. After that I bought two 2100MHz ECC DDR4 sticks and installed those, as I knew that RAM works in pairs and always takes the speed of the lowest stick. So I tried to update the BIOS manually after that. I wasn't able to. and many things broke after that also. The computer does not shut down anymore. I have to restart it and press power when I see the POST screen. It sometimes loses USB and / or mousepad buttons (the pad and tapping on pad works fine)
I got this from Dell Outlet as Dell Refurbished in january 2017.
I have tried several things:
a) Downloaded drivers via service tag / product detection from support.dell.com. The Bios installation file always tells me that:
"The AC adapter and battery must be plugged in before the system BIOS can be flashed.Press OK when they are both plugged in or CANCEL to quit."
Ofcourse I have them plugged in, I have tried it docked, on 3 different ORIGINAL and two non-original adapters with different power output up to 240W. I had 72Wh battery on it before but ever since I have purchased a 91Wh original battery from Dell dealership to make sure everything is ok.

Buying a new pc for typical office use (word, excel etc) which will be connected to 3 monitors and typically have several programs running.

Currently thinking of a Dell and the salesman suggested the Dell Precision T5500 with a xeon 2.13Ghz 4MB chip because, he tells me, it can handle a 3 monitor set up better. But its pricey

I was thinking of the cheaper option of the Precision T3400 with the core 2 duo 3Ghz 6MB chip but i'm not sure about the 3 monitor set up.

Which machine/ chip would be faster/ handle multiple open programs/ handle a 3 monitor set up better?

without a doubt the xeon will be much faster....

I checked T3600 and 3610 - the only difference is BIOS firmware, even BIOS chips are the same. T3600 has Intel ME firmware 7th version - that is why Xeon v2 are not recognized by the 3600 system, they need later 8th version of ME. Upgrade of ME formware is a difficult procedure  - You need to fit the size and other attributes of old ME region. The simpliest way would be to read both BIOS chips from 3610 motherboard and clean data region in ME but I don't have any T3610 systems. Another way is to analyze BIOS file for T3610 and drag out the firmware for T3600. If anybody has T3610 - please reply

Hi, Xeon E3-1535M v5 or Xeon E3-1550M v5? Which processor would you recommend? A shop told me, that E3-1535M v5 is no longer available by Lenovo and that Xeon E3-1550M v5 would be the best. Is this true? Thanks for any advice!

Saw your other post asking about optical drive. I got a feeling that it's either a joke or scam. 1) There's no optical drive option for P50 (of course we are talking about built-in drive, not the external one).2) There's no E3-1550M v5 option for P50.  In fact, even the E3-1535M has limited availability.  e.g. E3-1535M is available in Japan but not in US. Good luck with the 'special built' P50.

A:which is better 2 x Xeon or 1 x dual core ?

I do not know too much about the differences of the two architectures, but from the basic info you provide, it seems the dual core option will be much better due to the massive clock speed difference. Also, the 2x Xeon is probably using an obsolete chipset that may not compete well with the dual core setup, therfore being a lesser performer.

From the little I know about the Intel Pentium D, they function in a similar fashion as a real 2x cpu setup.

I've been comparing the specs on the following processors and as a non-gamer the Xeon processors look very attractive. What I like is that Intel offers the choice of a Xeon 80 watt non-graphics processor versus it's 95 watt on-board graphics processor. It would have been nice if Intel offered that same choice in it's Core line. Many users prefer a PCI graphics card and don't use the on-chip graphics, so why not a choice, like with the Xeon line?

Compare Intel? Products,

A:Sandy Bridge E3 Xeon vs i7 Core comparison

well the xeon is a server cpu not ideally suited to home computing.

but intel do offer non integrated graphics by choosing a different model, the i7 950 3.4ghz and the i7 2600/k for example one is sandy one isn't.

while it is well priced at around ?170 and uses socket 1155 it's just not cheap enough to ignore the i7 range.

when you look at the compatable range on motherboards they are all server boards listed i don't think anyone would be able to garuntee a standard 1155 board would work, the motherboard
Intel? Server Board S1200BTS costs around ?180
Intel? Server Board S1200BTL this board only supports ecc ram which usually costs a bit more.

the difference in price from a standard 1155 board for home use negates the cost difference of the cpu.

Hi, this is my first post, so I hope I have read all your instructions correctly.

I have a Dell Precision workstation with Windows XP (currently SP3, same problems on SP2, quad-core Xeon 266GHz/3.25GB Ram). The system freezes momentarily all the time, the computer is almost entirely unusable. It seems to happen when I start programs that access the hard drive heavily or perhaps use RAM, so I suspect it might be a hardware problem. TaskManager and ProcessExplorer both show the CPU as being unutilized (system idle process is near 100%). Also freezing happens with activesync, when transferring large files from my mobile device. I have Symantec antivirus on my system.

I have some programs like TortoiseSVN and Xerox Docushare Client that I suspect could be causing problems, but I uninstalled and disabled and the problem still exists.

I've gone through and checked a lot of things already. If this is a hardware error, how can i diagnose it? Something is blocking the operating system and processes, but it doesn't show up in ProcExplorer or TaskManager.

What should I do? Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for any help you may suggest.

ProcExplorer and TaskManager show no sign of the system hang-ups.
Symantec scan did not return any real problems.

INTENT: I am upgrading a Dell Precision 490 Workstation with Dual Quad Core Xeon Processors, 4GB RAM, and 160GB SAS ATA HD from Windows XP-64 to Windows 7 SP1 Professional 64-Bit. Fresh installation.

CHALLENGE: Windows 7 64-Bit SP1 Professional will NOT see the 2nd XEON processor.

THINGS TRIED: I used MSCONFIG in the start Menu. Went to the Boot Tab. Pressed the Advanced Options Button and on multiple boots did the following: a. Clicked on the multiple processors button and rebooted. b. Clicked it again and rebooted. I was only able to select 4 processors from the single Xeon that the system is seeing.
I upgaded the system BIOS from Dell's A06 to A08.
I entered F2 to enter BIOS setup and looked for any Multiprocessor menu's, support, HAL selection, etc... Nada. There is one menu for multi-threading which this generation of Xeon does NOT support (Xeon E5320).

Considering an upgrade. If I go with enthusiast board it will be 1366 6-Core Extreme CPU, even though I would not have much interest in overclocking. If I go server board, it will be a Supermicro dual-Xeon server board that can handle the 6-core Xeons as a pair. Ouch on the price!

Obviously, as far as the Xeons go, there won't be any overclocking, even for a few quick tests and such.

In either case I will be running Win 7 Pro 64-bit as the OS, and the systems will be liquid cooled. I have the appropriate water cooling equipment, PSU's, ATX/E-ATX cases, etc.

Any explicit advantage to either chip? I'm not an overclocker, but I do want speed at stock ratings. Are the Xeons just more heavily validated and tested?

I have not ventured into the world of server boards a lot, but those I have used from Supermicro I really like since they allow so much greater control, such as BIOS-level remote desktop, etc.
 

A:Intel desktop 6-Core vs. Xeon 6-cores - Differences? Pros or cons for either?

Xeon processors function better with multi threaded data handling like in a server side to deal with multiple access/data requests. I would stick with a desktop six core as getting a xeon processor would be impractical and you wouldn't be able to get the full potential out of it unless you want to turn your computer into a server, ha ha.

The response of the system (no-boot with the Xeon CPU aboard) is your answer:  NO.  This system won't take that CPU.
Since the system won't boot with the Xeon CPU aboard, it matters not which OS you plan to run.

Its going to depend on the chip of course, but I would say in general an i7 would be the better option. If you go with a 6 core 12 thread i7 you will have a very nice video editing machine. Thats my opinion, its in reality going to be up to exactly what your needs beyond just video editing will be to decide what is a better idea.

I recently bought a Xeon 2.8 533 512 (prod BX80532KE2800DSL72F) with a view to building a mono-CPU system. The box, however, states 'Supports Dual-processor ONLY / 604-pin micro-PGA).

Is this correct? Do I need to DUAL chip the board or will it work as a standalone?

If I need 2 do I get exactly the same one to create the matched pair or is there a different one I need to get to compliment the architecture to let it function at peak?

Thanks
 

A:Xeon CPU

Yes, you need two that are exactly the same. Out of interest, why did you buy a Xeon if you don't want to run multiple processors? They are nothing more than a P4 with a higher pricetag and SMP support.

Not sure if this is in the proper section but here goes:

I'm still running a first gen i7-920 on a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD4P, overclocked to 3.8GHz with a couple of GTX670s in SLI. Was thinking of keeping the graphics cards and SSDs and upgrading CPU to a 6 core XEON (which I would also try to overclock). Problem is that the X5650 through 70 does not appear to be on the Gigabyte site as a supported CPU BUT I've seen some threads implying that it will work with this board. Is there anyone that might be able to confirm that here?

Also, If I decide to just pick one up and try it, will Windows 7 x64 continue to run with the CPU swap or will it complain?

A:Xeon compatible?

I'm actually confused, because according to the upgrade list, the x5650 isn't on there, but it is a Socket 1366 processor, which is the socket on your mobo. So I can't say for certain, but in theory it should work.

Also it shouldn't cause any issues with your OS, since you're only changing one piece of hardware.

Does anyone know the pros and cons of Intel Xeon? What are the differences between P4 and Xeon?
THanks
Jerry
 

A:Intel Xeon

the difference is largely a matter of available funds vs. needs. If money is no object, then go for the Xeon..........

Hi,
I was thinking about buying Intel Xeon X5355 Quad Core Extreme 2.66GHz processor, but for some reason i thought that if i had an Xeon quad core i have to buy four of them? Is this true? And Would it be any good for video editing?

Thanks
 

A:Xeon Processor

Howdy,

Intel Xeon X5355 Quad Core Extreme is primarily made for servers and workstations.

What do you have now?

Hello everyone,

Just wondering if XP can put a Dual Xeon system to good use.. or will it only use 1 processor?

Thanks,

Debi

A:XP on Dual Xeon

Windows XP supports up to 2 processors, so it will take advantage of the dual-xeons

Hi Guys,

I have a Compaq Proliant Pl3000 6/500 with twin PIII 500 cpu's in it, I also have 2 Xeon 800 cpu's that I want to put in it, from what I understand this is possible, however I cannot find a converter for Slot2 ( Xeon to Slot 1 )

Is this possible, is there a converter around to do this, where?? and does anyone have a spec / part number if there is.

Cheers Guys
 

A:Xeon Converter

If there is such a part available, it'll be a custom Compaq part and you'll need to buy it from them.

Currently using a Dell 420 SCSI Workstation with 512MB rambus memory & single P-III processor, SCSI 10K drives...However no amount of adjusting memory or hardware configurations can turn this into a machine that can process two (2) or three (3) open graphics programs at once without crashing or just sitting there; you probably know what I mean. I use CorelDraw 10, Adobe, FrontPage & other Web designing tools plus Lt CAD. all graphics intensive programs by themselves, and some need to be open together.
I want to BUILD a system that will currently handle "Win XP Pro" plus the above mentioned programs without causing me so much grief!
There is confusion about the set-up.
Two 3+GHz Xeon processors with 2GB DDR memory on a WI-2P Abit motherboard with a 7505 chipset vs one P-4, 3.60GHz with 2GB memory on a Intel or other motherboard with an 876 chipset, dito memory! I have never build a system but keep 4 office Dells all network running so I am not intimited by the Build-Process. Any one who has first hand knowledge and has done a, from scratch build I would appreciate any input.
Thanks,

I'm building a new dual processor workstation and I'm trying to find a pair of socket 771 xeon processors that are under $300. I'm looking at the following:

xeon 5120
xeon 5320
xeon 5060

I'm leaning towards the 5320 since they are quads. The 5120 are cheaper but dual cores; the 5060 are higher mhz but have the 667 fsb. Main use if for video and audio capturing/editing in Adobe Premiere. Any suggesions or other choices would be a big help .

I am building a gaming computer and I am wondering if a Core i5 or a Quad-Core Xeon is better for gaming!
 

A:Solved: Xeon or i5?

There's lots of different models in each family, but Xeon's are better for workstations or servers. If you are building a gaming computer the i5 or an i7 is generally the cheaper and better choice.

Which would you go with? Also I'm partial to MSI, Asus and GigaByte motherboards.
I like games like Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon. I do a lot of MP3's and I plan on getting the MSI nBox FX5900 Video card.
I want to keep it low priced sinse I'm getting such an expensive video card.

Thnx.

A:AMD 64 or Dual XEON

I would still get a AthlonXP... AMD64's are still to new and expensive, and Dual XEON's are wayyyyyyyyyy to expensive and will not give you any noticiable improvements in gaming.

Untill amd64's get established, if you really want a dual cpu system, get a Dual Athlon MP one, they are far cheaper.

based off the responses i got when talking about a dual athlon mp system... it doesnt look so great. so i'm thinking of some other options. i've got a friend who does 3d animation and uses an older gateway server. It's got a dual xeon motherboard but he only uses one processor... when i had the chance of working on this system, it seemed REALLY fast. it could be that he had a SCSI drive that spun so fast you could hear it grind, or it could be that he did't have all the clutter on it and was running windows NT 4. but like i said, it was REALLY fast. i'm just asking for some thoughts on this because right now (besides the INSANE cost for a dual xeon motherboard) it seems like a viable option. thanks!
 

A:dual P2 XEON?

geez... no one here has ever used anything besides a p4 or athlon? :rolleyes:

How does a top of the line dual core Xeon CPU differ from a top of the line dual core Pentium? why would some ony pick a Xeon over a Pentium? are Xeon CPUs more reliable or something? would a Xeon be better for gaming? i was looking at the new Mac Pro. it can be configured to have two 3 ghz dual core zeon CPUs with 2 tb of HD space, 16 gb of ram, and 4 NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 512MB. if i installed windows XP on that mac pro would it blow away a top of the line alienware alx? my school is getting some of these new macs. i cant wait to mess around with it.
 

A:Xeon vs. Pentium

Xeon's are for high-end desktops and for servers. As are the Quadro video cards.

I cannot get DOS to work on a computer with dual-Xeon processors,
running
Win 2000. The window opens, and the C:> prompt is there, but nothing
typed in appears on the screen although the cursor moves. Also,
commands
are not executed unless a lot of them are typed in:

eg. dir [enter] will just sit there
but after a few commands are typed in (eg. command [enter], command
[enter], command [enter] ) they will be executed and the results will
appear on the screen.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this? Thank you.

I have a question about Xeon processor's, would it be more efficient to run 3 or 4 processor's in a server, is it better for them to work in tandem?
 

A:Xeon processor

Unless you're going to be running a file server for 100 or more computers using it heavily, I wouldn't go over 2 processors (Athlon MPs aren't extremely expensive, and do the job well). However, I'd set up the network as follows for 50 or less computers:

Dual Processor (doesnt have to be fast) Domain Controller

Dual Processor Domain Controller back up (very important -- it would SUCK to lose all your user names and domain information, and remember, downtime reflects poorly on you)

Dual Processor (faster then others) File Server
And add File Servers as needed. This set up is cost efficient, and if you use RAID 5, you wont lose data if one disk drive goes. You keep the File Servers seperate from domain controllers, and keep everything running well.
So, to answer your question, NO, I do not think anything over 2 processors is needed.
