Preferred Solution: Need For Speed : Carbon (Update Problems)

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi
i want to buy need for speed carbon but im not sure if my display driver can support it.
on the electronic arts website it says the minimum requirements, my computer is good for everything except im not sure for the video card
its lists - NVIDIA Geforce4 Ti/ATI Radeon 8500 or higher
i have an intel graphics card that came with the computer, the latest update of the intel 82845G, does this mean i wont be able to run the game?
do you need an nvidia or an ati graphics card?
thanks
 

A:Display drivers for need for speed carbon

It means you are screwed unless you buy a graphics card. Even then a 2 ghz with 512 of ram is going to have hell dealing with the game.

It is time to think about retiring your machine to internet/email/office only if you want to game.

Mine needs work, I am just waiting for a bigger upgrade than what is now possible. I am near the top.

Hi, I've got an X1 Carbon 20FB (4th gen), and noticed it doesn't have Lenovo System Update on it, which I've found useful in the past. So I went to the Lenovo downloads site and found System Update, but it doesn't list the 20FB as one of the X1 Carbons it supports - it only goes up to 20BS, 20BT: http://support.lenovo.com/se/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x1-... (See the "Note for ThinkPad X1 Carbon users") Should I avoid downloading System Update then? I've not noticed anything that's not functioning, but I figured it makes sense to keep things up to date from a security and features point of view. Why is it not included by default? Thanks for any advice!

Hi, I have an X1 Carbon. I did an  automated Windows update today, it seemed to work fine initially but then my laptop got into a blue screen loop and kept restarting. The computer worked for a while after that and then gave a blue screen again. This time the keyboards flashed as well for a while, and then the computer turned off. I cannot start the laptop since then. I searched the forum and tried the hard reset, but it did not help. When I try powering on,  keyboard lights turn on for just a second and then they go off. The green power button light turns on  but the computers does not start. Can anyone help? I am traveling for work and looking forward to getting help. Thanks!

I'm setting up a new X1 Carbon with machine type 20FB. It came with a Samsung MZNTY256HDHP SSD. I noted there was a recent SSD firmware update package for this laptop model, so I downloaded and ran the updater. It reported there were no updates. However, after digging a bit deeper, I discovered that the SSD firmware updater for the X1 Carbon 20A7/20A8/etc. DOES have an update for the SSD in this machine. What is going on here? Does this firmware update somehow only apply when the SSD is installed in a 20A7? Or did this particular model of SSD just get missed when Lenovo was putting together the firmware update package for the 20FB?

Laptop has got anti overheat thing so if temp rises over 100c it will automatically power off like if the battery was dead and that you unplugged it that sort of power off so temps you don't have to worry but as long laptop alone isn't idle at 80-90c then laptop needs clean out to fix it and if that won't fix it then it could be something else

Hi, guys!Some info:X1 Carbon (type 20FC)Intel HD Graphics 520 (driver 20.19.15.4331)Windows is up-to-date So far, everything works fine. If I update my graphics driver through Lenovo Companion to 20.19.15.4444, backlighting is stuck at 100%.If I update my graphics driver through Lenovo's support website/Windows device managers' automatic update to 21.20.16.4505, it kills my backlight completely. The only way to get things back to normal is to boot in safe mode, uninstall the graphics driver, reboot and prevent Lenovo Companion from installing the new driver automatically. Please tell me what's wrong and/or fix the grahics driver. Thanks.

Hello, I just recently performed the 26-Jul BIOS update to 1.14, for my Thinkpad Carbon X1 (20BS) with windows 10.The update went ok, but afterwards, Windows is crashing when booting. Using a bootable Windows 10 installation disk also crashes when booting. The recovery environment also crashes when booting. Using detailed logs, it seems to crash when activating the ACPI microcontroller. I would assume that has something to do with the UEFI update, that I have disabled in the BIOS. Enabling it does not recognise the disk, as it is not a GPT partition. I tried to rollback the BIOS, but it does not allow it.  Do you have any suggestion on how to proceeed? Thanks,Pedro

I just bought a new X1 Carbon with Windows 10 and am having problems with it going to sleep mode and waking it up. I have the power button and closing the lid set to put Windows to sleep. Sometimes when I'm away for a while, the screen will go black like it should. But the power button is still solid green. Pressing and releasing the power button won't wake up the computer. The only way to wake it is to press and hold the power button, which reboots the computer. Also, is there a manual for this computer somewhere?

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
I can't help with the sleep/suspend issue in Win10, but hopefully other members will join the discussion soon.
 
I can help with the manuals, though.
If you load the Carbon3 support pages:
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-x1-...
and select the Manuals tab, you should see the available selections.

I normally use the X1 carbon with the display duplicated to a Dell monitor. This stopped working. Only the laptop display is now available, with the Dell monitor in the HDMI port not being recognised. The display on the laptop does not have the correct resolution and overflows the bottom of the screen. The display resolution cannot be changed (greyed out). Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Hi,I bought a new X1 Carbon Touchscreen running Windows 8.1 I'm only getting 3 to 4 hours of battery max when connected to the internet, but I've heard that some people can get 6 hours running light tasks. I use Power Saver mode and limit CPU usage to 50%, with screen brightness set to 40%. Any ideas on how to reach 6 hours on internet?? Thanks.

A:X1 Carbon Battery Problems

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with 3-4hrs of battery backup you are getting in your Lenovo ThinkPad X1 carbon.
 
Have you tried enabling battery stretch in Lenovo settings?
 
The X1 Carbon has the advantage of rapid recharging. While a full charge takes 90 minutes, a 70 percent charge, enough for more than 3+ hours of work, takes just half an hour.
 
Refer this document to understand how to increase battery backup.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Good day, I just purchased a used x1 (System Model 20A7A00TAU) carbon yesterday and the headphone jack doesn?t seem to be working. I have searched forums far and wide and have taken the following steps:1. Uninstall and reinstall drivers. I downloaded 2 of them both had the same issue.2. went into realtek settings, and changed it to multi stream mode, no device was detected.3. I used 3 pairs of headphones.4. Someone online said it might be loose audio cable, i assure you it is not. The audio board also has a usb port on it and that port is working fine on my laptop.Any solutions that might work will be appreciated

When selecting screen resolution 1920x1200, on my X1 Carbon 4th gen with Windows 10 installed, display resolution  jumps to 1280x720, but the settings says I have chosen 1920x1200. When I choose 1680x1050, the resolution is actually 1344 x 840, not what I have chosen.Highest resolution the laptop now manages is 1600x900.OS is updated, gpu drivers are updated.Thought this thinkpad could manage 1920x1200, especially when the manufactor says so, and also when you got the option in display resolution settings.Is this a common problem with windows 10?

 HiI own a X1 Carbon Gen 2 thinkpad and wonder if it is possible to replace the current keyboard with a X1 Carbon gen 3 keyboard (with proper mouse buttons), or if it will not fit?I have tried to check the manuals and the connectors seems similar although some things, such as the fingerprint reader, seems different. I have no problem "loosing" the adaptive keyboard and fingerprint reader if I can have all the functionality of the keyboard and trackpoint on the new "keyboard" (i.e. the gen 3 frontpanel).

A:X1 Carbon Gen 3 Keyboard on X1 Carbon Gen 2

I am interested in this exact topic as well. Looks like the Gen 3 keyboards lack the adaptive keyboard - that clear stripe on the top that changes. The FRU for these X1 Carbons seem to be the whole keyboard, adaptive part, trackpad and bezel - they go for 150 USD or so. Problem is we don't know if it will work given the model year differences. A nice alternative would be just to replace the trackpoint. They came close with this one, but it is no macbook in terms of tactile feel of the pad. I really am having a hard time with it and it's been about a month.  Lenovo please help!

A:HP fan speed after BIOS update

'Does anyone know anything?.'

Not a lot, really.

BUT, most Bios settings that affect temps/fan speeds are obvious and can be targetted as either AMD or Intel processor management related to heat and cpu activity accompanied with motherboard manufacturer fan control options.

Get the manual - read it.

I just got this laptop on Feb. 2016, the HP support assistant specs showed 4 GB RAM at 800 Mhz, after the BIOS update is now showing 4 GB RAM at 1600 Mhz.  The manual says the max speed is 1333 Mhz.  Can someone explain this? I want to upgrade the RAM and need to know if the OEM RAM is salvageable?

A:Confusing RAM speed after BIOS update

Hi, It runs dual channels therefore 800MHz and 1600MHz mean the same thing (800MHz dual or double = 1600MHz). But due to slower chipset, it automatically downgrade from 1600MHz to 1333MHz. (similar to driving a fast car on a speed limited road). Regards.

Hi again,

I needed to install a few updates from microsoft, using the windows update service. The updates downloaded quickly which is fair enough but when the updated went to installation, it seemed to take a very long time for them all to install. I have a netbook and when I update that the installations are fairly quick. Would anyone have an idea why my update files are taking a long time on my laptop as opposed to my netbook?

thanks for advice.

A:Windows update (speed of installation)

It all depends on a number of factors. Firstly, not all updates are applicable to every machine, as some might only be to address issues concerned with specific hardware configurations. Secondly, computer specifications - processor speed, amount of memory, whether it has a HDD or SDD, the amount of free space available on the drive, and other background processes.

Before update avg speed was nearly 800-900 kbps but now it's just 100-120 kbps! What's wrong with it? I recently updated network related drivers so there is no problem with drivers side.

Hey, guys!
Not sure, if this is right section.. But when ever I turn on my pc I get messige saying that I need bios update in order to use CPU at full speed. Problem is that I already have the newest version of BIOS that there is for my motherboard.
So I wanted to ask - is there a way to still use my cpu full speed without update (bypassing that error messige or what ever is it supposed to be; manualy add driver for cpu or what ever is needed to run it at full speed; or something else).

I bought new CPU cause my old one was slow. But now because of BIOS runing it on safe mode - my new cpu feels even slower..

Can you list you mother board & processor?
I'm going gt take an educated guess & say your motherboard does not fully support your CPU.

Nice article from Inforworld on the Windows 7 update fiasco. 
 
http://www.infoworld.com/article/3136677/microsoft-windows/how-to-speed-up-windows-7-update-scans-forever.html
 
The speed-up patch, KB 3172605, is problematic, as I discussed in July. It contains a new version of the Windows Update Agent, which takes minutes instead of hours to figure out which patches are available.
 
There are two problems with KB 3172605 (“July 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1”) that aren’t discussed in the KB article:
 
It includes components that aren’t related to the Windows 7 Update scan slowdown problem. If you want to speed up your scans, you have to take all of the update rollup. You can’t pick out the good part.
 
It crashes a very common set of Intel Bluetooth drivers.
 

Edit: I would not recommend turning off Windows Update as shown in the article.

A:How to speed up Windows 7 Update scans—forever

Hi:
 
Yes, 3020369 and 3172605 (and, for new W7 installs, 3125574) are the key.
I can attest to that.
 
If WU is stuck in a perpetual "checking for updates" vortex, one DOES indeed need to at least turn off Windows Updates ("never check...") TEMPORARILY and, in some cases, disable & stop it from services.msc, also temporarily and then reboot.
It's the only way to get those patches to install manually.
Once that's done, and once the system has been rebooted, WU can be turned back on (preferably to "notify and let me choose) and the service can be restarted ("Automatic-delayed start").
A manual check for updates should take only seconds/minutes, instead of hours/days.
I posted this method here a few days ago: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/631190/windows-update-stuck/#entry4114538
 
This worked for me on my 2 W7 boxes and for countless others at many other fora, such as sevenforums.com
 
 
If it does NOT work, then it's likely that there's something else going on.

Hello All,

After spending a lot of time isolating the specific update that was giving me the extremely slow reboot time, (from 5 seconds to 150 seconds after update) I was able to determine that Windows optional update -Qualcomm Atheroos Communication - Bluetooth Controller - Qualcomm Atheros AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0 + HS was the cause of the lag.

I was wondering if anyone else had experienced the same problem and might have a solution to the lag. from 5 seconds to nearly 3 minutes is a substantial lag in restarting the computer.

I'm hoping that someone might have a solution to this problem.

The computer is a MSI GS70 229US.

thanks for the help!

A:Extreme slow rebooting speed after windows update

Hi,

Always best to download drivers from manufacturers instead.

For Atheros, this is good to use though: ATHEROS Bluetooth drivers for Windows

As far as reboot time, it is special after Windows Update. It is expected to take longer usually. There is only a problem when you reboot like 3 or 4 times and the issue remains.

But ya, just update from the link. If you already have the latest they have there, check back in a few days.

When will Dell enable Intel Speed Shift via a BIOS update? All the BIOS update requires is requires is writing 1 to MSR 0x770!
Speed Shift was fully supported by Intel and Microsoft in 2015 (1 year ago!). It makes the CPU much more responsive (particularly in gaming and real-time tasks) and costs nothing.
In the meantime, anyone can run software manually to enable Speed Shift but you need to relaunch the software every time your computer sleeps or turns off, so that is inconvenient. But the boost in performance is worth the effort.
I have manually enabled SpeedShift via software such as ThrottleStop or just writing 1 to MSR 0x770.

"High (millions in fact) ISR and DPC values within a short time could mean a bad driver."

Do you note any unusual CPU activity?

You may wish to check the driver is up to date.

The Nov 10586 update has caused various problems, one or two of which are thought not presently fixable from what I've read, the mechanism being that of a new Windows installation. Which also means you can revert to the previous one.. Settings, recovery, 'Go back to an earlier build'

A:Wireless card driver update SLOWED my internet speed drastically

If it is in fact only the driver you should be able to navigate to control panel - system - device manager - Network Adapters , right click the driver in question, choose properties then the driver tab and click the rollback driver button.

If it is in fact only the driver causing the issue, it should return to it's previous state after a reboot.

I wasn't sure where yo post this so I'll try this forum...

I put together a desktop for myself and used an Athlon XP 1500, which is supposedto run at a clock speed of 1.33Ghz I think, however my frequency is only registering at 667Mhz, which is
1) too slow
2) exactly 1/2 of what its supposed to be...
I am running it on a ECS K7S5A motherboard.
Here is my question...
Is there some setting or switch somewhere I missed when I was putting it together that causes it to run at such a speed?
Thanks for the help...I hope...

I have AT&T's Elite service which is supposed download at 6MBPS. This afternoon I was seeing speeds around 5.5MBS per the test run by Speakeasy. But right now that has dropped to around 1.5 MBPS. My wireless signal strength from a 2WIRE 2700 wireless router/modem combination unit has also dropped by a bar on the AirPort fan icon. I have also had a lot of 'Net disconnects over the past few weeks. An AT&T tech came by today and did see some line signal problems and did some repairs. He also left me a brand new 2Wire 2701, in an unopened box. If I open it and start using it I will get charged $79. So before I do that I want to make sure that my old 2WiIRE unit is the problem and not the DSL line still. Any suggestions?

can you connect via cable and not wireless and test
also try this program

and line quality test
did it work all OK before the Tech left ? if so why did he leave the router and if not why did he not try a router ???
also if the unit is still under warranty - you should not get charged...

could be the server your downloading from thats giving you the slow download speeds. you'll probably never download a file at your connections max capable speed. maybe try downloading something from microsofts site or another site that will give better download speeds.

Well that's all pretty weird, but before we engage in a drawn out process of troubleshooting -- have you tried doing a System Restore?

Start > run msconfig > Launch System Restore and choose a date prior to the problem.

I suppose it's remotely possible that the extra cooling has resolved an overheating problem that caused your cpu to run abnormally slowly. In that case any settings or configurations based on the old timing may need to be changed. Some of these may be available in the Control Panel applets for your keyboard and mouse -- where timing issues can be adjusted.

Hello;

I'm trying to find out if there is something wrong with my network settings. I just upgraded my service with my cable provider. I had been using their 50Mbps service and was getting around 40-45 on all of my devices when I ran speedtest.net.
I just upgraded to a 200Mbps service. When I run the test on my android phone and tablet it gets about 150. I imagine the lack of max speed is due to network traffic, but my W10 desktop and W7 laptop are both only getting about 25Mbps.

Where would be the best place to start troubleshooting?

A:Internet speed problems

It depends on what Gateway you are using and if using WiFi or ethernet. It can depend on the chipset for the laptop and desktop, along with other reasons that you are going to have to post further information on the manufacturer and model of the Gateway, Chipset for the laptop and desktop, if you are using either Wifi or Ethernet.

Hi!

I'm new to Techspot and these forums and here's my problem.
I recently upgraded to WMP 10 and then 11 but have come across 2 problems.
1. No sound when playing files or CD
2. A file or DVD is played back at faster than normal speed and yet again no sound.

I've uninstalled versions 9, 10 & 11 and re-installed, but the problems are still there.
I tried going back to a system repair point, but that didn't work either.

I also use other media players and non of them have a this problem.

Does anyone know what may be wrong and how to solve this?

I appreciate your help.

Best regards,

A:Sound and speed problems with WMP 10 & 11

Problem can be solved as follows:
It's a setting of the speakers. Go to Windows Media Player then to tools>options>devices and look for advanced settings speakers. It should be set to default (soundcard).
Sometimes if you have programs like Total Recorder installed as well, it tends to set itself as default for the speakers and thus causing the problems.

Could be your provider. With whom or what service are you connected?
Also, it could be right there on your system. As you know, the actual usable speed is limited by the slowest component... software, memory, motherboard, etc.
Can you try it at a friend or other known connection that you know to be fast, as a first step?

i recently purchased NFS Underground 2 for the PC, and every time i play it after a 5 to 10 mins. period the games crashes out back to the Windows desktop with no warning like nothing happend and I meet the requirements to run the game also. i'm just wondering whats causing this and is there a remedy to solve it??

Heres my PC specs. (to give you a good idea on what im working with here)

OS: Windows XP Home Edition (Service Pack 1)
Processor: Intel Celeron 1.30GHz/L2 Cache 256KB
Hard Drive: 80GB (Western Digital)
RAM: 256MB
Video Card: NVidia GeForce2/MX400 32MB
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Live 24-Bit
USB Ports: 5 Port USB 2.0 (PCI Card) 2 Port USB 1.1 (On-Board)
Motherboard: A-Open AX34-U
Other Hardware: 56K Modem, 10/100 Ethernet Card

if u have a solution about this please let me know, i'd really apreciate it
 

A:Need for Speed Underground 2 (PC) problems

Let's see... Could be:
1: background program is stealing focus.. (If the game just minimizes)
2: your video card could be over heating.
3: Your at the low end of reqirements, and it just can't handle so much detail..
Set everything to low and give that a try..

Even my specs, can't run it at all high detail.

Oh and Welcome to TSG!!!

Hi, I run Windows 7 Home Premium x64.

Here are my system specifications.

Q9550 Processor
4GB RAM
ATI RADEON HD 5750

There's something going on with the following applications:
Windows Media Player
Windows Photo Viewer
Internet Explorer
ATI Catalyst Control Center.

They are slow to open, slow to close. When trying to select or click buttons, it's highly laggy.

On the other hand, Google Chrome, Microsoft Office applications like Excel, Powerpoint and Word are fine. Games run smoothly and load fast too!

I've tried scanning and fixing with both Avira and Advanced System Care to no avail.

Please help.

Hi,

I have several mp3s which I need to join together. Unfortunately a few of them have been encoded at different bit rates etc. I have managed to join them using software called MP3Joiner, but when I play them back, they seem OK for a while then speed up to a point where I cant understand anything I'm hearing. Does anyone know how to get around this problem, for example do I need to re sample them? Any advice or software recommendations would be greatly appreciated
 

A:Audio speed up problems

Before you join the files together they have to be the same bitrate, so use the bitrate of the majority of the files.

If the Mp3 encoder you're using now can't perform that function, get the last freeware version of dBpowerAmp Music Converter.

Hello I have a custom built gaming pc that uses a wireless adapter, then by Windows 7 ultimate network bridges that wireless connection to my brothers room via a long ethernet cable. he causes some lag in games and its very annoying and he says he has no idea how to slow it down. I go to the NIC's properties and set speed and duplex on 10mb half duplex. I want to limit him to under 2mbps. How do I control the flow of data from the wireless connection to my NIC? 10mb and half duplex does NOTHING.

Whenever I set my mouse pointer speed to a high than default speed, it always manages to reset it self either when I shutdown/reboot. Also It might be happening when I remote desktop to my computer from campus. I;m not positive though. Any ideas as to why it won't stay at the selected speed?
 

A:Pointer speed problems

You might start by telling us what mouse hardware/drivers you have, as well as what version of Windows you run.

I'd start by uninstalling all of the special mouse drivers, and doing a fresh install.

Hello. I have been wondering about the speed of my internet for sometime now. I currently have comcast's package that's suppose to be 6Mb/s down. But when i go to download something on the internet it says 700Kb/s to 1.3Mb/s. I then decided to run the speed test on Speedtest.net it says i should be getting upwards of 19Mb/s down and 1.3Mb/s up. I know 19Mb/s down is unrealistic but with our current package i think we should be getting more than 700Kb/s down. If anyone has any input on this i would like hear it.

Thanks
 

A:Problems with internet speed

Double check your 700Kb/s speed test results to see it is really 700 Kilo-Bits/sec and not 700 Kilo-Bytes/sec.

I have a Geforce 6600 8x graphic card with 256 mb memory. I'm trying to find the minimum requirements for this game that uses sprite based technology (textures). Given the fact no 3D technology is calculated by the graphic card, only textures, shouldn't the speed of this game play very fast? I thought my mother board was causing the problem since it only has an AGP 4x slot, but the Geforce 6600 8x converts to 4x so what could be causing the "bottle neck?" The game's frame rate is bouncing around 30 frames or less.

My PC Specs:
Name - Gateway Desktop Mid Tower (GW 500s) Color - Silver and Black
Pentium 4 2.0 ghz
Windows XP Home
DirectX 9.0 or higher
1.5 gb RAM
38 gb Hard Drive
550 watt Power Supply
4x AGP Mother Board
Verto Geforce 6600 8x AGP, 256 memory

A:Game Speed Problems

The Geforce 660 is not a powerhouse card. although it is probably suited to the system you have listed. what game is this that you are talkinig about? if it is a 3D game and the video card isnt doing the calculations, then that would mean that the CPU has to do them. and you got what? a 2Ghz 400 mhz fsb cpu? your running 1.5GB of unspecified ram so it isnt running dual channel and it's probably PC2100 or PC 2700 at best. Not exactly the ideal set up for any newer game that demands alot from the CPU.

I am using Win XP Prof. SP2. I find it very slow in all operations. My PC was very fast while I was using 98 SE. I have checked for virus, spyware, etc. Is it due to low RAM - 256 MB of RAM.

Defrag and add more RAM. 1 gig should be enough to speed things up.

My laptop's speed is decent when I first turn it on, but after I start opening programs like AIM for a prolonged period or leave it idle, the computer becomes overwhelmingly slow.
It's not just the internet, it's slow in every aspect and it's making it impossible for me to do my homework.
How do I fix this problem?
Also, ever since I installed AVG, 2 "My Documents" folders always pop up upon the laptop starting up and it's not listed in startup options so it takes me 10 whole minutes to start up my computer. Any idea what should I do here?

So I have a 6mbit/ 768kbit cable connection.

I recently had a crash with the hard disc so I had to replace it and with that i had to install xp again. The connection worked fine for a while. Then i downloaded the fixes to windows and I suddenly got no upload speed. The download is fine, but the upload is from 7 to 100 kbits pr second.
I use AVG antivirus and have put on and off the windows firewall but nothing worked.

I called the internet provider today and they will send somebody to me on monday, but if it is something in my computer then the cost would be quite expensive and unnecessary.
So, I basically wanna see if I could eliminate the possibility of my computer being the sinner.

If this message isnt informative enough please ask and I shall try to give the information needed.

I work on a system for simulation. There are USBs plugged into the computer. If I right click properties and look at the process speed. It is showing 17.66 GHz. I never heard of a speed that fast. It is supposed to be 2.66 GHz. If i unplug the USBs then it starts up normal. after that i plug the USBs back in and there is no problem. I am thinking it is the power supply not being powerful enough on boot up. Its a 400 watt power supply and the video card alone calls for 450. we have a lot of stuff hooked up to this computer. What do you think?
