Preferred Solution: ECS reportedly set to exit consumer motherboard market

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

Wow didn't even know these guys were still around I've not touched and ECS board since the athlon 64 days and even then I wouldn't buy one lol.

Not saying they were terrible but I've never been a budget system builder so their products have never appealed to me.

Cisco Source Code Reportedly StolenWhile it is extremely difficult for crackers and hackers to read and find vulnerabilities in source code, this concern should be noted and the Cisco IOS system should be kept up to date for the best levels of protection. Cisco Source Code Reportedly Stolen,1759,1593870,00.aspThe FBI confirmed Tuesday that it is working with Cisco Systems Inc. to investigate the possible theft of source code for Cisco's main networking device operating system. According to a Russian security Web site, criminal hackers broke into Cisco Systems' corporate network last week and stole 800MB of source code for IOS 12.3 and 12.3t (an early deployment version of the operating system containing features not found in the vanilla 12.3 version). In addition, a 2.5MB sample of what is supposedly IOS code was released on an Internet Relay Chat channel as proof of the alleged theft.

A:Intel reportedly releasing just two socketed Broadwell CPUs

It often makes you wonder why push Broadwell now, when Haswell has a lot of traction and it's a few months to Skylake. They also included some BGA in the mix for other devices, but pushing a desktop chip seems a bit odd. Given the few months in between them and people unlikely, to drop Haswell unless for lower power systems.

All in all it's negligible power savings, we'd need to obviously see how the integrated graphics fair. It might be a solution for some people, but obviously not everyone is going to see it as a huge importance. It's kinda amusing to me because, I'm looking to replace my mobo / CPU right now. I'd likely sit and wait for Skylake, simply because I'd only be wanting to buy one upgrade. Upgrading is a low priority right now anyways, so there's less inclination to spend right away.

I am building a PC and I have decided to buy a OEM Q6600 processor. Being it is OEM it will not come with a CPU Fan or Heatsink. I have always bought retail versions of CPU's. I know this time I will have to go with an after market CPU fan and heatsink.

I was hoping someone would give me some advice on which product would do for my situation. I was looking at the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler. I think it fits my needs.

I also have a question about Thermal paste? Do I need it? Or does it already come with all aftermarket CPU Fans/Heatsinks?

Does anyone know if the ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler comes with Thermal Paste? Would it be a good idea to use more even if the Heatsink already has the paste applied?

Thanks for the help.

I am sure many will have their opinions on this, but me personally it has to be Intel, on a budget of $500 for just the CPU and motherboard you should be able to get the latest high performance Intel i7 4770K and a decent Asus motherboard. IMO it is the best you can get for your money and will out perform the AMD.

Yah... I've already browsed around Newegg and Tigerdirect but I'm indecisive.

EDIT: It would be NICE if it could run a small 8 man counter strike server, not required though. XD

A:I'm on the market for a new Laptop

A few basic things you want to make sure your laptop has before choosing. Yes i was a salesrep and no i did not like it XD. I did however learn what is needed and what is just overdoing it. At the very least you will want 1GB of ram as vista requires this just to run that is if and when you want to make the transition to that OS. Always check the graphics card as you know all games such as WOW have minimal requirements and with all the awesome spells you will want something decent to render those graphics i would suggest something in the upper 5000s with media accelerator as it comes in handy. Ofcourse it is all based on personal opinion and i would aslo consider style XD hps are usually Nice to look at as well as use.

Hello everyone,

It's been a long time since I've been able to do any PC gaming. I've had a Gateway laptop for the past 2 years, and it has been great other than the fact that its graphics card is not good enough to play pretty much any new game (the problem has to do with the dreaded DirectX 9.0c which from searching some forums I've found that this issue has plagued gamers everywhere). Anyway, could anybody recommend a good, reliable, ready-made PC that I can purchase that has the right specs to play the top games? I'm into FPS and RTS games just so you know what I'm looking for. I have not the time nor the know-how to build a computer myself, so I'm looking to buy one for preferably under or just slightly over $1,000. Any help would be appreciated!

I know that software development will never be obsolete, but the problem of freeware is still there.

A:Software Market

Developing new computer applications isn't really a career. It's an entrepreneurial career path. You're starting your own business. Do you have great ideas for new applications that don't already exist? Or maybe you have ideas on how to improve applications that already exist? Or you could develop custom applications based on a customer's needs by doing something in Visual Basic, C#, or Java.

The real opportunity right now is with mobile applications. Developing for the iPhone and iPad and Android phones and tablets. Have you considered this? It would still be entrepreneurial unless you got a job with an established software development company. You'd have to keep your own books and buy your own health insurance and things like that. It's a huge risk, but it can have great rewards if you're successful.

Photo editing requires a lot of memory, preferably fast as well, with a high speed front side bus.
Our experience has made us very reluctant to recommend Sony anything. The upper half of the line for Dell, HP, and Gateway are all good. You might want to go for a private company only if you are a gamer. Get at least 1 GB of memory, but we recommend 2 GB or more. We like the computers that have Seagate drives, as reliability of Western Digital, Maxtor, and Hitachi have dropped dramatically. We also like drives from Samsung, Fujitsu, and Toshiba.
Spend a lot of time shopping for the graphics card, and the network interface, as they can be trouble.
Printers are one of the greatest mysteries nowadays... failure rates have gone sky high... Laser printers are much more reliable than photo printers, but the photo quality is less good. We suggest you do not buy the printer online, but rather from a store in your area which has techs very familiar with their printer line... and which ones fail early. Do not buy a new model... get something tried and true known to last... to avoid the early failures of many Canon, Lexmark, Dell, and HP Officejets...
We like the Konica Minolta, Fujica, Samsung, and Brother... and some of the HP printers... but we do not trust any printer that is a multifunction unit with a scanner... the problem with these units is the ink availability.
In our area and in Tucson, Office Max seems the best choice for printers as they have solid experience.
We service a great many computers, and believe you can be happy with HP, Dell, or Gateway, as long as you do not get a low priced budget or home model. We cannot recommend Sony, eMachines, Compaq, Alienware, Systemax...
It is perhaps too early to report on VISTA. If it were my decision, I would wait three to six months to learn what problems have come with the VISTA releases.

they all have their ups and downs
first consideration is do you want a flash or drive based one? A flash drive won't hold as much but they tolerate more josteling around than a drive based one will
second is price, iPods are nice but overpriced for what you get as is the zune (which also makes life hard with its DRM usage).

If I were in the market today (I'm currently a happy Nano owner) I'd be researching Creative products (like the Zen) or SanDisc products like the Sansa

a hand full of questions about after market i7.

first, if my CPU is currently reading within 5-10 deg of the case temp, is it realistic to expect a CPU cooler to improve the temp or should I focus on case fans. currently reading 40C idle up to ~85C @ full load. In my mind this is high considering it has auto-throttle @ 90C and is only rated for 100C.

second, any suggestions on air cooling if I upgrade the CPU cooler? I've heard decent things about the noctua NH-U12P, but can't decide.

A:There are too many back-up programs on the Market

Hello Chris,

I like the built-in Windows Backup and System Image features. I have found it to be reliable, but others have had issues with it not be reliable at time. Personally, if you do not modify or mess with the backup, then it should be fine.

Macrium Reflect is another great free 3rd party program for backups.

I've got a friend who's having a bit of trouble. He's recently purchased the GeCube X1300 AGP graphics adapter. Being the avid gamer he is, he's looking to keep the card nice and cool so he's searching for an aftermarket cooler. The trouble comes in with the PCIX converter chip on the back. It's raised more so than the rest of the components on the back so we doubt the standard coolers will work on it. The exact model is this GC-RX1300GA2-D3 if anyone wants to have a look and see if they can suggest any coolers he might want to look at.

Thanks for any help you can provide in advance.

A:In the market for new camera or camcorder

Any of the brand name digital cameras are all pretty good.
Olympus is one of the best but Sony and Fuji also make great cams.
Just make sure you have one with a high OPTICAL zoom - up to 10X - and ignore the sales pitch on digital zoom that is close to useless.
Look for about 6 megapixels as a minimum.
Check it has a macro zoom capability and always use the highest resolution possible but remember this will give you seriously big picture file sizes - possibly over 1 Megabyte!
Trial and error sort of stuff.
Most of the decent cams also have video capability of up to 10 minutes of movie making.
Pick up a couple of high capacity flash storage cards as well.

Hey once agian.

I was just curious as to what notebooks/laptops you guys might recommend towards me? I'm entering college soon and need something that will walk around with me. Something that can take some abuse and something that won't break. HP is out of the question. So please don't recommend any of their products.

I was considering Dell or Vaio (is that Sony?). Nothing too fancy as I said, but something that works.

I'm not entirely trying to replace my desktop. It's just that I can't drag my desktop everywhere I go.

Generally, bad power supply or overheating CPU or hard disc has bad sector or computer has virus infected and sometimes bad RAM causes this problem.

What should you try,
Make sure your computer is getting enough air in it. Try to restart computer in safe mode and disable to Automatic Restart in the system properties. I don't know it will give you to enough time to do it. If it is so we can see BSOD error code understand where is the problem at.
Or try to restart in safe mode and go to Command Prompt than type chkdsk /r, this command will fix bad sector on disk if it has.

Hi Guys,

A:Target Market for consoles

It might be an interesting agle to look at the game titles as well as the console itself. It is well known that Nintendo has always favoured the younger crowd by releasing less violence oriented games, and Sony has tried to cater to all by releasing some kid friendly and some uberviolent stuff. Seems mostly violent stuff. I don't play XBox but it seems to me they cater to a more adult market, with many sports titles and the always favorite FPS games.

It looks like I need a new mobo to replace my DFI nf4 Lanparty Ultra-D. I run an opty 165 with a pretty hefty OC (about 2.7ghz from 1.8) so I'm hoping to find something that can OC reasonably well. Need it to have PCI-E as well. I've been scouring the net for the last couple hours and it doesn't seem like there are many 939 boards on the market any more. Some older sockets still have more products available... what a sad fate 939 suffered. Right now I'm leaning towards the Biostar NF4 Ultra-A9A. Can't find much info about it though (positive or negative). I'm steering away from the Foxcon on newegg after reading the many bad reviews of it.

Any suggestions?

A:Any good 939 mobos on the market?

If you can find an ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe, that would be very nice. Those were the most popular and pretty much the best 939 boards out there. Basically any version of the ASUS A8N series would do spectacularly. nForce4 was a great chipset, and ASUS did a great job with its motherboards based upon it.

A:In your opinion, what's the best anti-virus on the market ?

Hi tarheel ladybug,

These forums are littered with the answers to this popular question.

The answer isn't straightforward because even the best antiviruses and antispyware programs are absolutely useless when a new, fast-spreading infection appears.

What you should look for is an auto-updating antivirus and preferably a free one. Free does not mean useless it just means it does what it says and nothing else. Recommended here are Avast and Antivir.

Auto-updating means that the most up to date signatures (this means that the virus is in the database and can be removed) are automatically added to your product.

None of this means nothing unless you also regularly scan your PC. Once a week is a good average.

The antispywares that are the most updated and powerful and recommended here are Superantispyware and Spyblaster. These are free and good programs and also they don't require you to know anything about viruses.

I would provide you with a link to more info but I get the feeling you just want others recommendations so I will just say that I use Avast and Superantispyware and leave it to the BC crowd to add to this...

A:Wireless adapter market confusing, needs help!

There is no significant difference between draft 2 and the final 802.11n. Draft 1 can be problematic, and I would advise not touching it.

150 Mbps is maximum nominal speed using one channel; 300 Mbps is dual channel. TrendNet is claiming a 450 Mbps router (since there is no other product claiming more than 300 Mbps I don't know what good the router would be).

In the following I'm assuming that the computers and network are doing little else and that there is no wireless interference.

If you used one computer connected to the router by ethernet and the other by 802.11g Wi-Fi you can get 2.5 or a little more MBps data transfers for a large file. With operating system overhead don't expect that for a bunch of smaller files though.

Same setup with dual channel 'n' would probably give you about 8 MBps. Both computers using dual-channel 'n' probably 3 to 4 MBps.

Hello everyone,
Just installed a fresh copy of windows 8.1 Pro, and i am quite thankfull and i like it a lot. Faster, smoother more practical. However, i just made a new account (microsoft) and i installed this one app. I did not like it very much so i unistalled. However, when i log in at my market and browse to my apps, under the Apps installed in device Sotxxxxx it shows that very app there, saying at the bottom "Not installed". What can i do? This app is also shown under Apps not installed in this device. I was thinking about deleting the current account, as i use diffirent e-mail provider and create it again with same username. Is this possible? Any help and i would be gratefull.

A:Windows 8.1 Market, an app was unistalled but still shown.

Hello sotostzam, and welcome to Eight Forums.

That would be the Your Apps feature in the Store that lists all apps that you have ever installed from the Store. It's suppose to help make it easier to reinstall apps that you have installed before by making them easier to find say after having to do a clean install of Windows.

However, there currently isn't an option available to remove unwanted listed apps in Your Apps. The only way would be to close that Microsoft account, and create a new one with a new email address to start completely over.

I have a 3200 AMD Athlon HP computer that has a relatively cheap integrated graphics card and when I put in my GeForce 6600 GT it disables the onboard card. I was wondering if there was any way to override the disable so I could use both cards and set up a dual monitor desktop.

A:Working with integrated graphics AND after market

You can't do that. If you want dual monitors, you will need a card that has 2 ports. The only way to use 2 cards at the same time as one is when you have them in sli (nvidia cards), or crossfire (ati cards), and they need to be the same models.

Has anyone the same problem?

A:RP - Can someone login and install apps from market?

Try going into setting and making the account you are using into a local account then attaching it to your hotmail account again. This may solve the issue. I was having an issue like that so I tried it and it sorted it out for me.

I am running windows 7 professional 64 bit. I have tried a variety of viruses / mail-ware removal tools and wasted the last 24 hours trying to get rid of this virus. I have removed all unnecessary settings in Chrome, the only browser I use, and run scan after scan all to no avail. Does anyone have any idea how to get rid of this?

Lets try a few remover tools on it first -

I've been asked to do a multiple monitor setup at work with around 10 monitors. Buying high end graphics cards isn't an option though, so it would have to be in an inexpensive method. Multiple computers isn't a problem, if something like that is possible. Windows 7 would be the ideal OS, but if it's not possible on there XP or even linux would be ok.

Anyone know of a way to do this? If so, your input would be great.

You don't need to spend money on high end graphics cards...a couple of cheap low end cards will do as long as you're just doing basic tasks on them.
