Preferred Solution: Recommend Me a Motherboard

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.)

This is a decent board and performs almost good as my 590sli (which doesn't have video). It has onboard video, 4 ram slots, 2 ide + floppy, 4 sata, etc. I've got that in a second pc and works great.

I'm not sure which other boards you can look at, since to me it doesn't matter if it has onboard or not, I usually start with the chipset and go from there.
This one has a 570 chipset which should perform well.

I currently have a ASRock P4S55FX2 and have done for a year now, has already blew up, so had to send back to be replaced, now the computer is acting in the same way, so have a feeling this is going to happen again so have decided to splash out on a new one to actually work and not freeze my computer from time to time, anyone any recommendations?

Thanks

First recommendation, DONT buy SIS chipsets, as for recommending another mobo, stick with Intel based chipsets by Asus or Abit.

Within the next few weeks, I will likely be rebuilding my grandparents computer (since their P4 with 512mb RAM is no longer up to the job)

Anyways, I am aiming for a E5200 or E5300 Processor, with integrated graphics. This computer has no need for power, which is why I am opting for integrated graphics and a mid-range cpu

Any good recommendations?
 

A:Recommend a motherboard

I think G45 boards with Intel X4500HD graphics that fit DDR2 800 memory, take at least 4GB RAM but can start with less depending on the OS. That with E5200 or E5300 would give you a nice range of upgradability in the future if / when that becomes necessary. X4500HD onboard graphics even plays Blu-ray movies on Vista (but not XP though) in case their needs change a lil bit in 2-3 years. If something else we don't know of at this point came up down the line, then you could add a dedicated video card.

For instance, this also takes a wide range of processor FBSs, You start with E5200 (800MHz)which is at the buttom of it, but it can be upgraded to Quad Core (1333MHz) down the line when Quad Cores are like 80 dollars, in addition to memory being able to go up to 16GB (which you will never need hopefully!) It also has 6 USB on the back. And has a good customer satisfaction rating.

Personally, I feel like I know exactly what you are talkin about. Folks who have basic computing needs. If you don't need G45, you could go with G31 etc. But if things like Bluray became the 'standard' in a few years, then maybe, boooh! LOL! I will have to add a video card then (still not a big deal though). In addition to that G31 may limit the upgradability of RAM depending on what you choose. I'd probably go with A GOOD mobo with expandability and start with the low end components that the mobo takes, so that it can be used for several years. If your grandparents ONLY use the computer for Office and Internet Explorer, a webcam/Skype, and transfering pitures/ maybe burning them to CDs, then G31 should be good enough, for instance, this (though FBS 800MHz is not listed, the manufactuere's page says the mobo supports it.). Anyway, if you go with a G31, I recommend that you make sure the board has a PCIe x16 slot in case a video card has to be added in the near future...

A:Recommend me new Motherboard, CPU, and RAM

That proc is definitely a good one.

I use AMD x6 myself, and I love it--it's ridiculously fast and slick. I'm a fan of Gigabyte or Asus motherboards. I don't know what to recommend as far as Intel boards, but for AMD, a Gigabyte FXA-UD5 is hard to beat. It's what I use

You should look on Newegg and check out boards and procs by spec, then compare by highest rated. It's amazing what a thousand reviews versus maybe ten can say about a board

For example, just snuffling around Newegg, I came across this Intel Gigabyte board: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

two boards i would recommed are:

Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R and
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L

The P35 chipset will allow you to use the latest DDR3 memory, these two boars are very good in my opinion and provide a good ability to overclock if you wanted to.

Supported RAM Speed PC2100, PC2700, PC3200

I would go with a DDR PC3200 Ram that is as large memory wise as you can go (I personally would go 1 gig chips ) remember with DDR you want to install in pairs to get the speed boosts.

I could use a little bit of everyone's wisdom here. I find myself doing more and more computer repairs (mainly family and business is good!) and feel that a hardware diag card would greatly help me out. Since I have no experience in chosing or using a PCI Motherboard diagnostic card so I'm hoping some of my friends here can point me in the direction of a good, user friendly card. The only other caveat is that I would like to keep the price under $50.

Thanks guys and gals!
 

A:Recommend me a motherboard diagnostic card

None of them are much good for very long. Motherboards change too frequently. Experience is the best teacher, followed by goog books by Muellar and Bigelow... and know your software.
The motherboard is very seldom the problem... in fact it is surprising how seldom the motherboard is involved in the problem. Same with the CPU. Only in eMachines, which you cannot fix anyway, does either have much to do with the problems.
Invest in a good thermal temperature gun, for under $50, a case of Dust Off, a good power supply tester, and a couple of quarts of denatured alcohol. Put the rest into diagnostic discs that you can trust... buy building your own from downloads at www.majorgeeks.com, www.pcworld.com, and elsewhere.

As per title, I've been using ASUS motherboards for last 11 years and I must say they are worth every penny. First one was P4P800-Deluxe which lasted from 2001 to 2007 and second one is P5E3 which I'm using since 2007 till now.

I guess its time to jump on bandwagon and upgrade my system. I'm again very much leaning towards getting ASUS again, i.e. P8P67

I was wondering if I should try some other brands like Gigabyte or MSI. I know ASrock is sister company of ASUS so its like getting same motherboard for less money. What will you my fellow PC geeks will advise to go for?

I almost forgot to mention, I'll be getting Core i7 2600k very soon so motherboard has to be 1155 socket.

A:Recommend me new MB

All you can expect to hear is someone's personal experience with a brand, such as you just stated yourself for Asus. "I've owned leventy-leven brand X motherboards and never had a problem".

You can then go immediately to Google and find all kinds of horror stories about that particular brand.

Anecdotes are just that and mean little since the horror stories encompass all brands and you will play hell finding any authoritative evidence--just as it is for hard drives.

I've owned Intel, Dell, Gigabyte, and several Asus motherboards. The only one that ever failed was an Asus.

Signifying nothing. It's just another anecdote.

Look for the features you need and buy from a dealer you trust.

Make some wild-ass guesses and questionable assumptions about supposed build quality and quality control.

Hope it doesn't break.

Hope even harder that you never need to deal with customer support.

PC Diagnostic software? Something that looks for potential problems and can fix them but still giving the user control over what gets repaired?

I have used Norton WinDoctor for years but recently it repaired a registry entry and caused big time problems. I had to use System Restore to back up to the previous backup. Ever since I have been reluctant to let it clean much up with out eyeballing the change first. I have also used Norton CleanSweep for a long time but it will not always remove software that it says it does.

I recently tried PC BugDoctor. It finds a lot more errors than WinDoctor does but their licensing fee is quite high, so I've never bought it. And it does not say what it's going to repair so I have never had it try.

A:What UPS would you recommend for my PC?

I would look for one that would run your system for about 10 minutes to give you time to close out any files that you have open and gracefully shut down in case of a power outage. Just don't put your laserjet printer on the same line. Your monitor and computer should be all that is necessary.
APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V should be more than sufficient. Many are cheaper but you gets what you pay for. Some of the cheaper ones are nothing but a surge supressor.

You need to convert them to .wav files.A free program that will convert, and also allow you to edit music files, is AudacityCDex is a free CD ripper, and will convert, back and forth, between .mp3, and .wavWith Audacity, you'll need to make copies of your files, before converting, unless you don't mind the originals being converted.CDex will batch convert, leave the originals intact, and would probably be the easiest to set up, and use...

I am planning a new build (already bought mobo, cpu, ram, and dvd drive), and I am looking for a nice PSU. I havent decided on a graphics card yet, but its likely that i will get either an 8800gt or an 9800gtx (they ususally want ~300-450W)

Anyways, most PSU's I have seen have around 8 molex cables. I dont need 8 molex cables, I dont even really need one (maybe certain case fans btw). My Hard Drive will be SATA, my DVD drive is SATA, so I dont want to waste space and drown in cables with extra molex's. I am looking for something at 600W (nice and safe, all hardware should be fine with this), and not to many molex connectors.

Suggestions? (Not buying from Newegg, since I dont live in the US)

Hey guys, i got a tall order for you guys.

i was wondering if it would be advisable to have 2 AV's, 2 Anti Spyware/Malware, and 2 Fire walls? Recently i had a glitch in the system, some Backdoor virus is trying to get in.
Bitdefender is blocking it left and right so im safe. Am i over reacting? or should i amp up my security? So i considered running 2 of each.

heres what i considered

Main AV: Bitdefender 2nd AV: Either MSE, Avast or Avira

Main Anti spyware/malware: MalwareBytes 2nd Anti: Superantispyware or any other

Main Firewall: windows7 firewall control 2nd wall: pctools firewall or anyother

what do you guys think? i mostly use my puter for school, games, and im constantly downloading new software.

Check out my specs and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advanced.

A:Do You Recommend it?

While running 2 AV's is possible, it's definitely not advisable. There's nothing at all wrong with running a virus scan with more than one anti-virus program. Because it's just a scan - it starts, it scans, and then it's done. Real time monitoring, which is installed with most anti-virus programs is constantly running and scanning files downloaded to your machine. Running two or more real time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict which could result in any number of error messages or failures. The most advisable thing to do would to be to find a good, reliable anti-virus program that you trust, and make sure it's always updated with the latest definitions.

Same for anti-spyware programs, as long as there isn't two real time monitoring engines trying to do the same thing at once, you should be fine.

The same goes for firewalls, however, I just wouldn't recommend running two software based firewalls at the same time because, as with AV programs, they monitor in real time, and two programs trying to do the same thing at once can and usually will cause problems. However, if you have a hardware based firewall, such as one built into a router, there would be no problem running a software and a hardware based firewall.

As for your case, if you believe BitDefender is doing it's job, I would leave it as your anti-virus, and use MalwareBytes and run a periodic scan to check for spyware, and either use the default Windows Firewall, or another 3rd party firewall and all should be fine. But remember, the best security is purely common sense while browsing

Sorry for the long winded reply, too much time on my hands lol. Hope I helped

A:What CPU will u recommend ?

What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.

A:Can someone recommend a CPU

From the MB and CPU specs, I would assume the PC is at least 5 years old?

It is possible to upgrade the CPU a bit, but finding Athlon XP CPUs is getting fairly difficult and expensive. Also, upgrading any other part in such an old system would be a waste of money since you won't be able to reuse it in a future system later on.

Your money would be better used if you saved a bit for a completely new PC with up to date parts. There are plenty of fairly decent PCs on the market these days for under $500 which would perform many times better.

How much are you planning on spending on this computer because it's very possible to cobble together for you a computer that would meet or beat a combination of the best parts of the 7635 and the 7755 for usually just a little more money.

I don't think this is a PSU issue, you don't have many components and the GT 520 is a low power card (Nvidia's website recommends a 300W power supply).

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.
The problem is that I am being told I am outside the 3-month repair warranty. I think this stinks! It's a known issue and I would like someone at Dell to step up make my expensive computer work normally all of he time.
Yes, I have run every diagnostic known to man and the internet.

I have four 3-pin fans and two 4-pin fans in my computer and i need a fan controller than can control most if not all of them.

You should have separate controllers for the best results when both 3-pin and 4-pin fans are installed.
I would change to fans that all have the same pin-outs

I have Norton Antivirus activated for 6 months and i wanna see is norton any good ? I'd like to try it but i dont know is it good.
 

A:Do you recommend Norton ?

Well Norton is a good AV, used to use too much system resources but i've installed it on my system about 3 months ago to test it and it was really light with only 2 processes and used about 10-15 MBs of RAM when the Chrome was opened (now i use Firefox). It's protection is good but if you can switch to Bitdefender or Kaspersky or Emsisoft than do it. Currently i use BD Internet Security and i really like it. You can use Bitdefender AV free edition with Comodo Firewall, a very solid combo IMO.

Hi,
Please recommend a simple IDE for Mac OS X. I'm just learning C myself. And so far, I just type something into a text editor and then type "gcc program-name" in the terminal window and then type "./a.out"

It is quite cumbersome. I was wondering if there is an easier way, where you would type the code, then it could debug, compile, and execute by pressing a button. Switching back and forth between the text editor and the terminal window is a pain.

There are lots of options in Windows (and Linux). For Mac, there is only Apple's XCode which is way complicated than I need it to be.

Just starting to get into gaming, and have a new PC setup, with a 6-core AMD cpu and 32gb RAM, but with an ATI 3000 series card, so I know it's not the best video card out there (can't afford the good ones yet).

Would like to know what games you recommend that will work with this video card (low end). I have Assassin's Creed 3, but the video is choppy, and even some older games like Broken Sword 4 have video problems as well. Skyrim seems to be OK if I set the resolution down to medium or low.
 

A:Recommend games?

It would help if we knew the exact number of the card, not just "3000 series", but really, any game made in 2006 or earlier should run on it, many games at max. Battlefield 2, Battlefront 2, Company of Heroes, Command and Conquer: Generals (and it's expansion, Zero Hour). The Call of Duty franchise has undergone essentially no graphical improvement over the past five years, and as such has very low graphical requirements. Although they won't run on max detail, your graphics card should be able to handle all Call of Duty titles. If you turn it down to minimum graphics, you should be able to play the Mass Effect franchise and the Dragon Age franchise, as well as more recent Command and Conquer games like Tiberium Wars and Red Alert 3. If Skyrim works, then rest of the Elder Scrolls series is obviously open. The vast majority of indie games, many of which you can find on Steam, have very small graphical requirements. Any MOBA game will work, most if not any MMORPG will work. Despite having an outdated graphics card, you still have a large variety of options open to you so long as you're prepared to turn down the graphics settings. Games I certainly would not try without upgrading your graphics card include Battlefield 3 and Crysis (amongst other resource-intensive games).

What Antivirus would you recommend out of these 2? Avast free or Trend Micro Maximum Security? I'm trying to not use windows defender its not really good.. 

A:What antivirus out of these would you recommend?

Both of those have good reputations, though both will tend to use more system resources than Windows Defender does. The installers for both of those will handle the issues related with disabling Defender as part of the install process, so it's really a case of choose the one that has the best price for the features included. Note that there are two different Windows Defender products. With older OSes, Defender was only an anti-spyware package, not an Anti-Virus. With the current OS, Windows Defender has the functionality of Microsoft Security Essentials rolled in, so acts against both spyware and malware. All my machines are runnign Windows 10, and I use Windows Defender on them without adding a third party package.

So, there are 100's of webcams out there, and all seem to generally have the same spec's. But the thing that varies is price, and I'm sure some webcams are somehow better than others.

What I want is:

-Atleast 1.3MP
-I need it to be able to clip on to my Dell Latitude D630
-Reasonable price. For instance, i'm not spending $100+ on a webcam. But i'm willing to pay more than $20, but if it does cost $20, that is fine too.

You could simply use Windows Firewall and focus on preventing malware from getting on your computer.

If you want to add some simple outbound protection you could use Sunbelt Personal Firewall or PC Tools Firewall Plus.

And if you want full security at the cost of more complexity there's Online Armor, Comodo Internet Security with the antivirus disabled and Outpost Firewall free.

And for only 11$ more there is a 320GB western digital blue scorpion with the same 8MB buffer that others 2. But I don?t think if 320 its a lot for Satellite Pro M70, and I have a external 2.5" disk that have 250GB, data its not problem.

What its better solution for this laptop? I don?t want to burn now the laptop LOL.

A:Satellite Pro M70 - Which HDD can you recommend?

Hi

If your notebook is already equipped with SATA interface you can use every HDD with SATA1 or SATA2 port because on new SATA interface there are no capacity limits as on old IDE standard.

It?s your choice what HDD you are buy because I don?t know your requirements but in my opinion it makes no difference from which manufacture you buy the HDD. All HDDs are similar and there is no significant (performance) difference.
I did make good experience with Western Digital and Hitachi HDDs.

By the way: You can buy an HDD with 5400.rpm or 7200rpm. Latter is faster but needs more power. In my opinion this is only useful if you often work with large files.

First of all, you can run Windows  7 on a Mac book.

My recommendation is to use Windows 8.1 and see if you like it and forget windows 7.As to which Mac, I do not fell qualified to say. Maybe somebody else.
