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.)

I have seen many screenshots where the icons in Devices and Printers very realistically represent the device it represents, but mine dont.

Here is a screenshot:


I'd like to change the iPod to represent my Nano, make the display look like my Samsung, make the Printer look like my printer...

How can I accomplish this?

I am thinking about giving an old Fujitsu lifebook B110 a new lease of life, I have it since new and although it's old I am quite attached to it.

It has a Pentium 233MMX processor, and 160MB ram.It currently runs Win98.

The hardware meets the minimum specs for XP, but seriously, would it be usable? Or would it be like watching paint dry? The most it would do is a little light web browsing and maybe some email.

Also, I wonder if XP home would be any less demanding than say, Pro?

I know I should just go ahead and give it a try but I can't do anything at the moment until I get an external CD drive, so I am just thinking ahead.

if it's not up to running XP; I might give Puppy Linux a try.

Hi , can anyone recommend any modern warfare type first person shooters please.

Ive completed Cod4 already on veteran , ive also played BF2 , delta force and expansions and Americas army.

Im more interested in single rather than online multiplayer games , so games with a good story/background intros would be cool. Also games with reasonable graphics , I know theres not gonna be much that compares to Cod4 on that front at the moment but something closeish will do

I don't see any.

It does not seem faster.

Vista never uses more than 2 GB on my System, for all the 4 GB+ talk.
The virtual memory/page file is as big as ever.

Drivers take for ever to come out, and are usually last.

You'd need an electron microscope to notice the additional features in 64 bit editions of games versus their 32 bit counter parts.

Am I completely missing the point of 64-bit Vista?

What percentage of Vista installed today is the 64-bit edition? Is it increasing?

Hmmm....

A:Is there any Realistic Benefit Using Vista 64 vs 32?

For me,the 64-bit version just Felt that little faster than the 32-bit Version.

If you are using 4GB RAM then u have to use X64 to make sure Vista uses all 4GB (Even if its not using it currently,with newer apps taking lots and lots of RAM,4GB will become a standard sooner rather than later).

Driver problems are more Vista Related (i.e both 32 and 64 bit) ,than only X64.
Yes the percentage of people using Vista X64 is increasing,In fact most people jumping onto Vista are getting the X64 version.

Hi all. I need a little help making photo look more realistic. I have been asked if it is possible to remove the door, gorilla and extra kids from this photo so only the boy playing the marimba is left.

Using Corel PhotoPaint 11 I have managed to do the following:

Basically I cut out the kid and his marimbas. Then I created a wall using a portion of the original wall as the "paint" and the same with the carpet. It all looked too "smooth" so I fiddled around and eventually settled on adding noise which seems to make it look better. The kid had very straight edges so I used a thing called feather to blend him in a little better.

I am still not happy though. It still looks a little cut and paste to my liking. Particular areas of annoyance is the "halo" above his head and the flat look of the front marimba.

Is there anything I can do to make this look a little more realistic?

I have only ever cut out logo's before and worked with text. I do a lot of work with vector graphics, but this is a bit new for me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Cara

How do I get realistic distance representation using GIMP?
=============================================

Thanks for your input to my postings. I am using GIMP 2.8. I am not an expert.

I have two images (image1 & image 2). I have same object in image 1 & image 2, but the object is displaced between images. I used GIMP to overlay both the images to figure out the displaced distance. Here is what I did.

I created the 1st image from clipboard, I open a new layer and placed the 2nd object. I adjusted the opacity to provide transparency between image 1 & image 2 . I find image 2 is layered on top of image 1, but the displaced distance is not representing realistically on layered image. I tried with zoom. Images look odd.

How do I make the images to be sync to displaced distance?

I am attaching the layered image for review.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello everyone!

I am about to buy a 21 inch monitor. A secondhand one from yahoo auctions in japan.
There are many options, but as a foreigner here in tokyo I prefer to go safe and get an old usual hp.

I intend to use it for spreadsheets and every pixel space counts for me.

The question is,
My first option, Hp p1100 model does not support 2048x1536 at flicker free refresh rates. Is around 100$.

hp p1110 or later support 2048x1536 at 72hz or more. around 150$.

Can one use 2048x1536 with a 21 inch monitor for spreadsheets or general use? I mean realistically. If it is an unrealistic resolution then I will not bother about it and get the cheaper one.

Your experiences would be appreciated.

A:21inch monitor 2048x1536 realistic?

If $50 critical for you go ahead and get the 1100 .You can run the CRT at a lower resolution and still have the extra territory.
But get the 1110 if you can. Remember, at the higher resolution ,spreadsheets may be too small so you might have to increase font size.but the letters will be nice and crisp.

Hey, I have been using Tux Guitar to compose music, mostly kinda Alternative Rock/Punk Rock sounds. I have a friend who i can send my .midi files to, who runs them through 'Logic' mac software and makes them sound alot less like some crap ringtone, It's still not entirely realistic but it sounds a heck of alot better, and from that point it's alot easier to show my friends and say "play this" when we're jamming

So!

I was wondering what kind of Windows PC software i can achieve the same results with - close to, if not better. Just something i can run my programmed midi's through, and substitute the polyphonic sounding beeps for more effective digital instruments. any improvement is good... so it doesn't have to be ULTRA SOFTWARE 80000!!!!111one!!one!! that does a whole bunch of other things too, but it would be great if i could achieve something similar to what Logic does to my music. And if it's all expensive, is there something atleast free to use that I could improve them with even a little in the meantime?

Thanks.

Hi all,

Just a quick question here, does anyone know of any software that can render and animate creatures with flesh and skin that move realistically? Not just with a shape following a bone but where the flesh squeezes out around bending joints and is effected by gravity etc. They use it all the time in films e.g. to create dinosaurs. Is there any software like this generally available that wont break the bank? Or is it only available to film companies etc.

Thanks.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could refer me to where I could find a high quality falling snow simulation. It can either be independent (transparent and active on all screens), or associated with any background. It will most likely be found as part of a holiday screensaver or animated wallpaper, but I'll take it any way I can find it. I've searched extensively and can not find any very realistic simulations. Most use conspicuous and common symbols as snowflakes, seriously lack assorted effects, and just look too artificial and unrealistic.

At one time I had installed and used a screensaver associated with the attached desktop picuture (and this one has even been modified from the original picture with a superimposed Santa, snowman and snow puffs), but I somehow have lost it thru many computer changes. I have been unable to relocate it since, although the desktop picture alone was recently found on some sights. That screensaver had the best falling snow simualtion I've ever found, with shifting winds and speeds, and also a realistic snow concetration and depth perception. If you know where the that original screensaver can be found, I'd truly appreciate it.

Thanks for your interest......

I have an ongoing issue where I log onto the glyph launcher, log onto my server, play for a while, sometimes hours with no issue but then BOOM, the game just closes on me and I'm booted back to the launcher. I have to push the PLAY button again, log into the server again, but it seems once the game boots me out then the crashing becomes more frequent.

I at first reported it to Trion support (useless) all they do is copy and paste previous responses from previous games sometimes not even removing the other game titles from it, but all in all I have spent over a month with them and I have:

1. Expanded my paging file to initial size of 1X RAM size max size 2X RAM size (to handle the memory of the game)
2. Switched from DirectX11 down to DirectX9 and back again. (in game)
3. Lowered my FPS (frames per second) to 100 (in game)
4. Switched off Multithread rendering and VSync (in game)
5. They have also had me change the priority of the game archeage.exe to high to see if that helps and it doesn't

So recently Windows 8 killed my hard drive so I had to switch over to Windows 7 on a new hard drive. Everything seems in order however when I try to play certain games I seemingly can't connect to various servers.

Games and the problems I receive
Armored Warfare: Failed to connect to Authorization server
Ark Survival Evolved: No servers appear in server browser, attempts to connect through steam directly fail
Verdun: Failed to connect to server
Smite: Failed to connect to Hi-Rez Authorization server

I am unable to play any of these games however I am able to connect to and play other online games without a problem. These include World of Tanks, World of Warships, Red Orchestra, Mount and Blade, Depth, League of Legends and War thunder.

To fix my problem I have tried to:
Turn off all anti virus programs
Turn off all firewalls
Tried using two different internet providers via two different modems in two different locations
Reset Internet options
<I am using a wired connection>

I have literally no clue how to fix this and I've tried contacting these game's support teams and communities for assistance however they have been less than useful.
 

A:Can't connect to certain game's servers? (Multi-game problem)

Even after you disable firewalls they may still be running in the background. From personal experience I know that certain firewalls, like windows defender, would stay on even after I disabled them. If uninstalling the firewalls isn't an option you might want to add your games as an exception.

Mind telling me which anti-virus programs you have/firewalls you have?

You also might want to open up certain ports for the game servers. If I'm not mistaken the ports are different for different games so you'll have to google that.

For example War Thunder uses the following:
The following ports required to be opened for the game:

TCP 80, 443, 5222, 7850-7854(range), 7800-7802(range)
UDP 20010-20500(range), 3478-3480(range)

In order to play a dev-version you also have to open the following ports:

Launcher uses the following ports:

TCP 27022-27042(range), 6881, 8090

It seems something is going wrong with my GPU or one of the drivers. I feel like it's most likely hardware failure, due to extreme treatment of my laptop. What happens is the whole screen kind of just gets chopped up into squares (sometimes the patterns vary. Sometimes, it's not even a ****ing pattern, just a ****ed up screen) with different colors. It then crashes and attempts to restart but you can't even read the BSOD because the screen is so messed up. Then it will reboot itself but the screen is screwed and if you attempt to run 'windows normally', it will crash and reboot in an endless cycle. I have to start in safe mode, in which there are a bunch of nasty lines that start from left to right on the screen. I can still use the laptop but over time the screens disappear and the screen finally goes back to normal. After this, I can reboot into normal mode. Help!!

I've been haveing some trouble with either game crashes or full bluescreen (error 101).
I WAS useing twin GeForce 9600GTs in SLI, I recently upgraded to a HD 7870.
The problem did not change, suggesting that video drivers are not the source... Although altering the drivers with the 9600GTs did seem to effect if the game crashed or full bluescreen crash.
So basicly, the PC works fine untill I play a game (high end and/or minecraft... simple games do not trigger it) at that point, you are on borrowed time. Around 15-120 min. into gameplay, either the game will crash (fatal error bug or no bug report) OR the PC will freeze briefly followed by a blue screen BCCode 101. (Windows 7 64)

I did a simple RAM check, but I did not leave it running for long. I have 3 sticks of 2GB in there, and haveing removed one at a time did not effect the problem. (IE: I took out each stick, leaveing 2 in for a quick and easy method to find a possable faulty RAM chip).

Thus far, it would seem that the CPU in at haveing timeing issues with a core.
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+ 3.2 GHz

Could it be overheating? Everything seems to work fine untill I start a game, then it crashes out roughly 30 min into playing.

I started to get worried and thought it was normal but then it kept on crashing on Portal(1st stage, at around 20-30 seconds on the timer) and almost any game i borrow from my friends. It crashed on Warcraft 3, Overlord, Drift City(only in Undercity Mission). Im kinda worried now maybe you guys can help me.

It crashes and sometimes the sound loops but sometimes it doesnt. Im not sure if it's only the monitor because some of my games cant be shut by using ALT F4 and i cant check if it shuts down well. When i unplug,plug and turn it on, there are no warnings or things that say it recovered from an error.It just starts normally.

You may have a dead port.
First off try removing all of your USB Hubs and Controllers in Device Manager and restarting.
Then see if it will recognize it.
If not try a different USB port (preferably one in the back on your motherboard)

If it's a serial port, go into the properties of the COM port in Device Manager and make sure your flow control (under Port Settings) is set to Hardware and baud is set to 9600. Also if it's serial you may need to check or uncheck your FIFO buffers under the advanced tab

As you can see by my specs its not the greatest laptop going but it was cheap and am not expecting to play Crysis at max settings lol. So anyway, Can anyone suggest any tweaks I can make to my system to get the best out of it please ? Either by altering services/RegEdits/Software optimisation etc. I have used Black Vipers "Safe" settings list already for general useage ,if that helps ?
I use Razer Game Booster (latest version ) , Is that the best one to use ?
I need some RAM I know but how much do I need and how will that effect my gaming experience ? I was going to buy another 4 Gigs , Is that enough ? I have 4 DDR3 slots , One being used with the 4 Gig. If I added 4 Gig , then wanted more would I have to balance all 4 the same or would using 3 be OK ? ( all 4 Gig obviously ) ?

Reported Processor Frequency: 2.99 GHz
Is that the best I will get out of it please ? And as a ... Read more

This happened once before and I had to remove AVG to get game to down load. But now I cant get AVG removed. It wont allow me to. I think I may have a viris. I tried resetting to previously loaded point, but have same issue.I went to laptop 3 year old/ Vista OS and it downloaded and runs the game fine. Went to game site forums doesnt seem to be a problem with any other users.

When I start a game of solitare from the program Pretty Good Solitare a dialogue pops up trying to install a DLL for Paperport. I cancel this and all runs fine after that; it doesn't happen until a game is selected from the menu and then only the first time.

I have tried updating the solitare game, no change. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game, no change. I have not done anything to Paperport for quite sometime, other than use it that is.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this and how did you resolve it?

Thanks for your help

my 86 year old cousin asked me to try and help her with her Candy Crush game Level 277. So I signed on FaceBook with her information and played her Game. Well when she signed on her Facebook page later that night it brought up my game of which I'm on Level 311. Last night I played my game just to see what would happen and my icon moved up the map when I passed the level but she is still at level 311. My game is fine. Hers is messed up as it presents itself as mine not hers. She is still on with my friends and she wants her game board back. We had a Half series of Freaky game switch. She switched but mine is fine. Her Facebook page is still hers but her candy crush saga is not. My computer is a Windows 10 not sure what hers is as she lives in North Carolina and I Live in Florida. I also played her game on my IPad. Which I believe is an IPad 2 not sure though.

i want to know how game works...how is the actions i do are saved and what are engines and what roles do they play in game's working...
my approach: i think the gaming engine is a platform,sort of like windows in smaller version where it is defined how certain file with certain extensions are to be opened,and they are displayed using our graphic card and etc....
every time we do some action eg.save game ,fight etc...the commands are send to processor which in turn decides what to do by checking the command with the already given one's....for eg. if i click the save button,the processor reads the command,checks it in game's directory which tells it to save the input data in a new file ,and then it saves the data in a new file....is this how game works...please answer....

Check this free program that boost your gaming experience, and improve over all FPS! Its really true? The program seem promising, but I'm little skeptical of using it.

Anyone willing to give it a try and tell me your result with screen shot + and how many fps you gain before and after etc after trying it? : )
 

A:Game XP! I need game tester reviews :D

personally i wouldn't trust stuff like that to not be a virus or something

even if the site says "no spyware" (i haven't looked but it might ) it doesn't mean no viruses

even if it is legit it will probably just push your system to make it perform better which could end up in damage to the pc

but if anyone else wants to try it then go ahead but i won't for now

Do they still have a game called....Wolfenstein(?) It was a game for like Windows 95 or something that was like a spy that went through some old castle looking for secrets of the German military or something like that. Haven't seen it in years, and was thinking that I really liked it back in the day, might want it again. Where could I find it, and would it work on XP??

Hi everyone,
I've been looking for a fix for ages now, but all forum threads I found were talking about the Game DVR recording no audio at all, while I can hear my microphone, but nothing else I've tried changing the audio quality, restarting my pc and even recording different games, but there was no game audio to be heard anywhere. If you have any ideas how to fix this I'd be very grateful!

A:Game DVR not recording game audio

What do you see in settings > audio?
This bit below is not exactly what you are asking for, but may be a better solution to your problem.
Do you have an AMD or Nvidia GPU? If so, I personally recommend using the built in recorders that they have. I have a GTX 760 and whenever and wherever I press alt+z I can bring up an overlay that allows me to start recording or streaming. It can also easily be set up to stay active in the background and if something cool happens when you weren't recording you can have it save the last 'x' minutes of video (where 'x' is the amount you set in the options). It can also record anything else on your PC, not just games.
