Q: I need some help trying to figure out which pc133 memory will work and wont work

I purchased a computer at a garage sale a couple of weeks a ago for a couple of bucks. the older couple said it was dead, but I liked the case and was planning on moving my internet computer into that case. it was a micron millenia max gs 800 and the only thing wrong was the video card was dead. I put in an old video card, cleaned up the windows os and the computer ticks like a new watch. according to the micron website, the motherboard is a tazer 2, tyran s1854 http://support.mpccorp.com/apps/specs.asp?ID=3176 the total pc133 memory is 768mb. my current internet computer (pIII 500) is limited to 384mb of memory so I'm thinking about buying 3 sticks of pc133 256 memory for this micron (it has 2 sticks of 64 mb for only a total of 128). the micron website and several other memory websites say that this computer will use pc133, cl-3, unbuffered, non-parity, 168 pin, 3.3 volt sdram dimm.http://www.crucial.com/store/MPartspecs.Asp?mtbpoid=3A9D9256A5CA7304&WSMD=Millennia+MAX+GS+800&WSPN=CT178220 since pc133 is so expensive new, I want to try and find some used memory, but comparing all the pc133 (on ebay for instance) and trying to figure out which will work is ridiculous. my question, will most pc133 cl-3 unbuffered 256 mb work in this computer? what are the important specs, what should I look for in the specs so that I get the right memory so it will boot? thx

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.)

Buying ram off ebay is not usually a good idea, if you do make sure you have a very liberal return policy wth it. and buy only from a reputable company. Buying from an individual is not a good idea for computer components at ebay.

I've seen some PC100 memory sticks for sale in my local paper. The problem is that my motherboard has a bus speed of 133Mhz. Is it worth me buying the chips and trying them out?
 

A:Can PC100 memory work on a PC133 Motherboard?

Right up front they will run slower and if you have pc133 Ram in there now it will slow them to 100 mhz. If they are cheap enough why not give it a try. You could probably take them back.

I have a hp media center that can take dual channel ram or ddr ram. and it has 4 open slots. The computer came with (2) x 256 mb sticks. I bought a 512mb and i want to use them all. but when i put the 256 in an open slot the cpu wouldnt work, so i rearrange them so it would in the following order.

slot 1 - 256mb
slot 3 - 256mb
slot 2- 512mb
slot 4 - none.

this is the way my motherboard is setup up with slot 1 and 3 and then 2 and 4. would the reason why i cant use 1024mb becasue the last 3 and 4 are ment for dual sticks? if that is the case can i just switch the 256mb to slots 3 and 4 and the 512mb to slot 1?????

None of my games will work. I took some advice of a forum because I couldnt get Perfect World to work and changed something in the registry to do with the port. Now no game will work and i would change it back but i dont know what it was previously.
My system restores wont work, wont even undo, and theres only one days worth there now. I dont know how to do a utilities reg scan which I think may be what I need to do, I dont know if its in my pc or on my XP disk. I cant use the disk because I dont know how to find my product code and the person I bought it off has gone to Cyprus .

I've done a Drwebcureit but really I need instructions for a 2 year old and I think this has happened since my last one. I had a Win32 Trojan in the other day and Vundo got rid of it I think, maybe its got something to do with that, maybe its still lurking around. Ive done a Combofix amd this was at the top - WARNING -THIS MACHINE DOES NOT HAVE THE RECOVERY CONSOLE INSTALLED. If anyone can help me, you would save my life, its driving me mad now.

Greetings!

I am running Windows XP, SP2. A couple of years ago, I got an IDE card for my computer because I wanted to add a couple of extra internal hard drives to my PC.

I tried just plugging it in and seeing if it would work and nothing happened. I have been trying to find a driver for the card, but can only find listings where I can purchase the card. I am in dire need of help.

The ID on the card is: AM29F010-55PI5.

If anyone could help steer me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks!
 

A:I Can't Figure Out Why My IDE Card Won't Work

OKay so I am using XP and tried Win 7 on trial. I started to get a BSOD when I was using win7 Randomly. I was worried it was the harddrive.

Time went on everything seemed fine.

But then it started again, BSOD. Just randomly. Somtimes doing things sometimes doing nothing.

The BSOD never gives out a report. It stone cold freezes.

So I reformated my pc back to XP. But the problem continued. SO I know it wasn't win7

So I had a brand New Backup hardrive I installed thinking it was my HDD and still the problem continues.

Certain times when the crashes happen, I am forced to put in a CD to fix windows.

I was thinking it has to be RAM or Motherboard.

So i'm testing Ram with Memtest86 I'm gonna let it go maybe 3 passes.

But can anyone think of anything else of what it could be? An how to test?

I dont know how to test the Motherboard.

I know my motherboard is at least 6 to 8 years old.
*--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some details I forgot:
The Error is a BSOD.
Somtimes after Crash I need the windows CD to fix the Boot
There was one time it crashed and the pc would boot, start loading windows and auto restart continuously.

Well Memtest86 ran 3 times and passed every time.

I'm baffled.

Ok, so I wanted to be able to watch and record TV on my laptop, I bought a 'WinTv-HVR-900H' usb tv card thing, the only tv signal I have is cable from virgin media. Virgin have told me that I have a 'modulated RF out' (or something like that!) from my cable box to watch whatever channel is on cable box at that time. So I have aerial from RF out on my virgin box to the tv card and I just can't find the picture anywhere.
I have tried using windows media centre, but all it shows when looking for picture is static, have also tried using the WinTv7 software that came with the stick but all I get from that is a no signal message.

I figured out how to change the RF out channel on the box, which I've done several times (currently on channel 21) but that makes no difference to anything.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm not sure what specs if any you would need to help me so please just ask and I'll try and find anything you need

My eternal gratefullness goes to whoever can get this stupid thing to work before I lose the plot and throw everything out of the window!

HI,

I have dictionary called the Unified Medical dictionary English-Arabic

anyway, i have the ISO file
i installed it on Win7 x32 with no problem

but i tried to install it on Winx64 but it says an error like "the setup file is not compatible with Win7 x64"

I tried to search for the x64 version but i had no success, google sometimes becomes lame u know....
I tried to just copy the already installed dictionary folders to Win7x64 but it didnt open cuz it seems that it needs to be installed

So is there any way to like edit that setup.exe file or something to work on x64 version cuz it seems if i can just bypass that step it will work

or like a work around the "copy whole folders" and get it to work
I really need some help with it,
thanks in advance,
Elsayed,

A:Is there a work around if Win7 x32 setup file wont work on Win7 x64

sometimes 32 bit applications have 16 bit installer and that won 't work on 64 bit system, but if this is not the case did you try to run installer in compatibility mode? (right click/properties/compatibility). Installer generally does three things: creates program directory, copies some DLL files to system directory and writes some data into registry. You could trace those things in Win32 installation and try manually recreate this on 64bit machine, but who knows if it will work. Also search for portable version, those don't require installation and frankly now a days I don't use anything else but portable applications unless there is no other way.

I recently tried to add memory to my home-built pc.
I started with 256mb in DIMM 1 and 128mb in DIMM 2. I later added 256mb to DIMM 2 and moved the 128 to DIMM 3.
Upon booting, the pc counted the new ram and all was well for only a matter of minutes. I started getting "Low memory" error messages which subsequently shut-down whichever program I happened to be in.
I removed the 128 stick from DIMM 3 leaving that slot empty and all errors ceased.
Any ideas as to why this happened?
Below are the stats for my pc.
TIA,
Rich

AMD 750 @ 750, Epox 7KXA (Rev 0.4) Frequency set
to host clock +33, 450 watt ps (PC Power & Cooling),
Micron PC133 memory: 256mb DIMM 1 & 256mb DIMM 2, DIMM3 empty.
Sound Blaster Live, Diamond Viper 2,
Hard drives: 20.5gb IBM and a 20gb WD,
Standard CD rom and a HP CD burner. OEM Win98 se.
Norton AV 2001.
 

A:PC133 Memory

98 has issues with > 512mb of RAM. I'm sure someone will come along and explain it in much more detail.
Also it is questionable whether you get much value for money over 256mb, unless you're doing something like processing very large image files in Photoshop or similar, although RAM is pretty cheap nowadays. In other words, you're probably not losing anything by not having that last 128mb installed

What is the CPU limit with PC133 memory? In other words what is the highest CPU in megahertzs
that a person can use PC133 memory with and get good performance and no problems?
Thanks
 

A:PC133 memory limits

Strange question, as the cpu limit is generally a limit of the motherboard rather than the memory. Motherboards that will use pc133 memory don't necessarily all support the highest processor that will use 133 memory.

Almost everything now uses DDR memory

I am running Windows XP on an Abit KA7-100 with an Athlon 700.
256MB PC100 memory fitted in bank 0/1

I added 256MB PC133 non ECC memory in bank 2/3

This new memory is not being recognized.

I am confident that I fitted the module correctly and it is locked in position.

I expected the extra memory to be automatically found but maybe I need to alter something in the BIOS.

Any advice will be much appreciated.
 

A:New PC133 Memory not Being Recognized

First make sure that both are the same type ie. unbuffered/ non ecc ....some boards will not let you mix and match.

Then you need to put your new stick in the first slot on the board, and the old one in the second. The fastest stick in my experience always works best in pole position, even though your board will default all memory timings/speeds to the slowest one.

Hope this helps.

Well you can always take your CDROM out and take it apart to clean the lens up a bit, that usually takes care of the problem, but that can be tricky if you don't know what your doing.

It sounds to me like your CDROM is bad.

Hello ElliottGenocide

Firstly do you have a system restore point available from before these problems occurred - System Restore
Can you remember what it was you changed in the registry.
Have a look through this,it has a copy of the default background and an application to change the logon background without having to touch the registry - Log On Screen - Change
I would also run this - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker see if that helps.

Hi

I'm in a real mess since Lavasoft AdAware crashed my windows 7 home premium edit. 64bit after its 1st initial mandatory reboot. Everything is frozen, nothing can be clicked on or done in any way, shape or form. Even 'Esc' and 'Ctrl-Alt-Del wont work. PC must be shutdown manually. It also wont uninstall in safe mode. Once in safe mode the 1st time I got windows telling me that it cant uninstall this software in safe mode (this was done by its own uninstaller, and by the windows one, and by the Revo Pro uninstaller.) the 2nd time (reboot) it told me it wasnt installed properly. the 3d time it can't install in safe mode again. What now please? Anyone have an idea?

Thank you

A:Lavasoft AdAware crashed win7-Ctrl-alt-del wont work & it wont uninstall in safe mode

Sorry solved it. I'll write the answer should anyone need it someday. I believe my solution can help for other similar cases besides Ad-Aware.
A minute after I posted this a thought came to mind: Go into safe Mode and use msconfig.exe. So I ran it and unchecked everything to do with Ad-Aware. TO be even more sure I checked off not to run also other things that I knew would not be needed like anything to do with Apple, or Adobe. Afterwhich, doing a proper reboot Windows did actually start normally--no crash and I was able to uninstall it. Slowly I put back other services and start-up items and all is working fine now--so far at least ;-) Thanks for those who took a look and I hope it will help some people in the future.

Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.

What exact messages do you get? What "advanced options" are you talking about? Also, it appears this site's profanity filter has blocked something in your post. Using such language is not helpful.

So I just re-installed my Windows 7 and re-formatted my disk after getting the virus Win32:Sality. However, after I installed my graphics drivers and restarted my computer, the taskbar and icons wouldn't show. I can see my cursor and can move it. I can right click and get options as well. If I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, the screen just goes black. I can still see and move my cursor. This happened after I installed my graphics drivers.

EDIT: Safe mode works fine.

A:Taskbar and icons wont show up. Ctrl+Alt+Del wont work

Did you install the motherboard drivers first?

for almost a year my computer has not allowed me to open anything without choosing wat application i want to open it with. i have to right click and choose run in order to get anything to open. Now i tried to download itunes and when i tried to run it it said the application was not found. Does anybody know whats wrong??
 

A:Solved: files wont open and downloads wont work

Try this fix: EXEFIX

Unzip the fix and extract the .reg file to the desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry. Note that you need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

Reboot the computer.

If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

A:My monitor wont display/my keyboard and mouse wont work...

Without more details about your motherboard, it sounds like your memory is not seated properly, or you damaged it when you took it out.

Me and my nephew wanted to lan play a couple of games. The first time every thing went smoothly. Both computers communicated fine how ever after that they now refuse to communicate. When I try to test the access it now stats on both that we don't have admin permission. I tride every thing I could think of. Updateing drivers, changeing network setings but nothing works. We both have windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Mine is a desktop, his is a laptop. While connected to the network we both have internet just the computers wont comunicate. What am I missing. I have even manually put in the ip, subnet mask and ports manualy.

How do I fix this. I'm at the point were I'm going to rip my hear out. Please help.

The last two weeks I have had problems with my work computer. I basically can not open most web sites, or they will opwn painfully slow.
I also can not use any web serch engines, like google or yahoo. They all eventually time out when performing a search.

We use Trend Micro as our anti virus software, and I know most here in the office all have the same worm called: worm_downad.ad
Trend Micro is currently putting the infected files in quarantine. I'm the only one with the above problem though.

I do use Advanced Windows Care to keep my computer running clean.

Two weeks ago, when I first had this problem, I got a new IP address from our IT administrator, and my computer worked fine for a few days, before turning to its old ways.

Not sure if this is malware, a network problem or what. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Search engines wont work/web pages wont open

Update:
It seems that no browser will work. I've tried IE8, Safari and Chrome.
It often loads the banners on a website, but the rest (the main part) loads really really slowly.

Could it be something to do with active x or java script having difficulty loading?

Hello

When i boot my computer it comes to a black screen and says windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this to fix the problem insert windows installation disc ... Then tells me how to repair this problem. I have found my disc to fix this but when i put it in my computers disc drive doesnt recognize there is a disc in there and doesnt spin! Ive looked everywhere online and the only fix to the disc drive problem is to boot windows and fix it from there (unless i buy a new one and i have no idea how to put a new one in in the first place) and the only way i have found to fix windows is with the disc! Please help me

Edit: i know this is only partially a windows 10 issue but i didnt know where to post it

What on EARTH process is always running in the background to make my hard drive chatter away for literally nearly 3-5 minutes after a bootup...and we're talking with a FRESH install!....Some something is running a LOT in the background but task manager is absolutely worthless in pointing out what is going on...It even gets to the point where , after having the Edge browser opened and perusing the internet for awhile, things get so bogged down, and windows is too stupid to tell me exactly WHY it's bogged down, things get to where even a mouse click is delayed upwards of 10 seconds! lol. Sometimes things completely freeze and pushing the reset button is the only way out...I've gone as far as downloading Avasts 'emergency startup' disc and booting from it , thinking there might be a virus, but it found nothing (although I'm wondering if it's loading a small portion of windows, which if it is, and a virus or malware is in that small portion, booting to the disc and running the anti-virus software is pointless...maybe I should try it with a linux based emergency disc?) ....

Alright guys, I have just refreshed my pc because I was having numerous problems with it and it turned out to be a bad stick of RAM. However, now I am having software issues. Whenever I try to make a call on the desktop version of skype, the program crashes. Whenever I try to open HP support assistant, the program crashes. When i am using the metro app version of skype I get a weird artifacting type problem on any of the buttons. I have this same problem in internet explorer and on Netflix. Netflix will not play on Chrome. It will play on IE, but with the button artifacting problems. My computer will not pair via bluetooth with my phone. What would be your recommended course of action? I don't know where to begin. I have tried updating drivers and the like but it has not helped.

Thank you

A:Bluetooth won't work, skype won't work, ntflix won;t work

Microsoft zune won't work either. It crashes when trying to set up.
