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.)

Hey all! I have been talking to several of you guys as to building my own computer in the past. As it turns out, Best Buy had a great deal on a really good system for their Black Friday sale. It is an AMD quad core @ 2.6, 8gb ram, 1TB [email protected] only problem is that the onboard video card is not the best...(it's a NVIDIA GeForce 9100 integrated) I was wondering if any of you out there have any suggestions as to what would go nicely in this system to bring it to top performance. I am aware that I will probably need a new Power Supply too, as this one is only a 300W...Can anyone help?

A:Got a new computer on black friday, specs are great.. except I need a new video card

Plenty of time to search for a video graphics card. In four days the prices will likely drop a bit.
You did not tell us the brand and model, or the motherboard, so it is difficult to comment. Also, what is the intended use?

Hi This is my first post, so a quick hello to all. I have been playing with computers for the last 10 years. I finally decided to build a PC myself for a couple of reasons, one is for a greater undstanding of these machines themselves, and I have always loved to build and create things.
Here's my problem: I bought all the individual components, making sure that they were all compatable. I spent a couple of days reading the manuals and putting the PC together. The big moment came to flip the switch and see my creation light up and beep to show the world my brilliance. Alright, I know that everyone of you is laughing, because you know what happened next. Nothing.Nada.Zilch. I would would some help for common problems and solutions. Thanks

A:New PC build will not start, but it looks great

The best option is to benchtest the Motherboard
All extra connections and parts removed, being:

Only power and Video connected
Only 1 known compatible Ram card installed
Hard drive (actually all drives) disconnected from Motherboard
Even try momentarily disconnecting the CPU fan (say for about 5 secs)
All extra addon cards removed
USB and front connectors removed

A:Huge Problem With New Build - Any Help Would Be Great

William --

I've built several computers, but am expert at nothing; however, the bane of all my builds has been getting the leads from the front of the computer case (for the indicator LED's and power switch and reset switch) plugged into the proper pins on the motherboard.

Over the years, board manufacturers have become better at providing clearer instructions in this area. Did you have trouble with any of this?

A:New computer build, dead video - tried everything

According to the CPU support list on the Asus website, you need at least BIOS version 0705. It might be labeled on the motherboard or on the box it came in. If you have an older version you may need to temporarily install another CPU to flash the BIOS, then reinstall the FX-8150.

Standard 64M X 64 Non-ECC 333MHz 184-pin Unbuffered DIMM (SDRAM-DDR, 2.5V, CL2.5, Gold)

Once I get the computer put together I get no video or sound. I put the processor and memory in another motherboard a ASRock P4S61 and the computer works fine. I have check the spec for the motherboard P4VM8 and it states that these are the correct component. I am lost here. I dont know what else to do. Could it maybe that the motherboard dont like the memory?

Try posting even more detailed specs of your computer, and the brand of your psu. On newegg, the graphic card has a requirement of 350 watts, so that pretty much clears it....have you lowered the hardware acceleration in display properties (always worked for video problems with me)?

Just wondering, with most MOBOs offering the ability to stack two video cards, would I be better to spend say, $150.00 on a 1 good card, or 75.00 each for two mediocre ones? These numbers are just an example. I'm not a big gamer but would like good video and grahpics nonetheless, if I were to build this for me.

Also, would the cards need to be twins or just compatible with each other, say in an upgrade situation where the exact card is not available anymore?

A:Whats better, 1 great video card or 2 good SLI?

SLI or Crossfire are mainly used for people who need ultra performance that one card won't cut. Gamers with 30" screens. There are people with lower who do use it but in my opinion it is a waste, most of the time they can get a single slot using comparable card for the same price they spent on the SLI cards and be using less power, which means less heat production and a cooler running computer.

You said you are not really a gamer, so go with the single card setup.

side note that a $150 is mid to low end for cards, the $75 would be two low ends. You also need a compatible motherboard which not just any will do for it.

I have a HP s5-1020 computer, small and neat but not much power. Graphics are adequate. BUT I just got Mass Effect Trilogy for Xmas. Looks like video will not run. The chipset on standard box is Intel G4 (?) and case is too small to add in something better (GE Force or ATI card).
Is there any way I can plug to better graphics card or should I give up and return Mass Effect? I am not going to buy new computer.
I have an idle box (old full size computer, DELL, with XP on it, but plenty of RAM and good HD). Should I be looking at getting it set up as a game machine?
Any adivce welcome.

Get a low profile card.
Couple of cards today are powerful enough and offer the open to use it's low profile brackets so they fit on smaller form factor cases.

I use iMovie a lot and the video camera I film with isn't compatible with iMovie.

Right now the converter I use is Wondershare converter, but I don't recommend it. I only downloaded it (free) because I was in a situation where I needed it very soon, but it has a watermark at the top that I always have to crop out. Also it got bad reviews for making you register and then not giving you a code or something. If you ever download it, NEVER register. The video quality is also not the best but it works.

Any other, better, free video converters that work on mac?

Hi there while no great love for Google I have to admit the Chromecast device is brilliant Using PLEX Free on W Linux works on both it works brilliantly to cast both your own local server based VIDEO and AUDIO to a remote device and is so easily controlled with the PLEX app on a smartphone What is particularly great is that the PLEX server can transmit FLAC files which the google chromecast easily plays on your remote TV The sound quality when pushed into a decent amplifier sounds fine --assuming the HDMI sound from the TV has reasonably good DAC converters to get the digital sound output OK When setting up the library first time on your TV ensure the agent is set to LOCAL MEDIA so all your local video files including TV series etc are built into the library the first time For a really cheap piece of hardware Google has come up trumps and converts any HDMI enabled TV into a smart TV Can't believe I'm actually praising Google - and controlling the app with a smartphone is really convenient as it saves yet another remote controller tv type handset Ensure you buy great -- combo PLEX and (Audio video) Google and Chromecast the latest version of the hardware as thee is an inferior earlier version No trouble with PLEX on W -- don't sign up for any extra stuff if you are interested in just streaming from a remote computer NAS etc Google Chromecast and PLEX -- great combo (Audio and video) No trouble either if you have several PLEX servers running - I have one on Linux and another on W --the phone app allows you to scroll files on any of the servers and cast to the chromecast device Cheers jimbo

Hi all.
The problem is as stated. I've had this monitor for awhile and it works great for video. But recently I plumbed in the USB plug (from the monitor to the case) in order to get protable usb memory sticks to work on the side ports on the monitor. It's supposed to be able to read them, but doesn't, and drivers don't seem to exist for this monitor. I'm using the HDMI connection for Video, the power plug is firmly seated. There is an open 12V DC connection open, but it is tagged with an "audio" label. Is there something I'm missing, does anyone else have this monitor where the usb's work. It's just tiring climbing under my desk everytime clients give me memory sticks, and there's already too much on my desk top.

It won't activate and you will end up in Safe Mode permanently. One machne = one license. You need to buy another full version. But you can do it if you don't use 7 on the old machine. You will just have to activate by phone and explain. Then if you go online with both, one will deactivate and go to Safe Mode.

A:My computer is working great except..........

What service level (speed) are you supposed to be getting?

If those speeds you reported were for actual downloads, what do you get with a speed test such as Speakeasy?

Computer is great I deleted them and removed bitorrent The problem did not begin around the same time but I don t know enough to say whether the were related Basically at Computer is great sometimes and slow others. some points everything works great amazingly fast and then other times it is just so slow you can t even use it Now when it began to slow down I started using auto runs and disabling start up programs and other unnecessary programs Which I guess helped but it is much of a blur as to the progression of the problem I have Macfee installed and sometimes when it is running it will pause for no reason I run that regularly Windows defender and avira Last week one of them removed some files but nothing changed Also I looked back at the above mentioned post and re did all that was asked mbam quick scan mbam full dr web ATFin safe mode and Superantispyware in safemode I think it was when I ran super anti spyware it removed some items and it just still is the same Thursday when my wife logged on to her account the desktop was different and took along time to load And of course it she got a pop up in the tool bar explaining why it was different but neglected to tell me what it said So I am not sure where to start of what to do Other problems are When you click on a link at a web site it seems to be loading and then you get a blank page Sometimes pages look blurry and you can t do anything at all Very long time shutting down and starting up You have to double click times to open a program When you click a button on a webpage it is like clicking it twice

My computer runs like grease lightning in safe mode, and my internet speeds are marvellous also, but alas when not in safe mode I have on quite a few occasions lately had my Windows freeze, my Windows Live Mail also freeze.
I will define freeze...................everything just does not work, my browser Firefox/Google, none of my loaded programs.
I have to leave the computer (otherwise I would throw it in the air) for about 10 minutes, and then it is perfect all day!, so I am guessing a program is causing the dilemma, but which one? I have about 60 applications running and I haven't loaded a new one in about 6 months.
Is there a program I can purchase/download that would seek out the rogue program if indeed it is a rogue program.
Any enlightenment would be great.

A:Computer is great in safe Mode!

The computer I just built is working fine and everything seems to be great, except for a periodic beep that I get and can't figure out it's cause. The beep is probably about every half hour or hour. I suspect it may have something to do with my Shuttle AK32 motherboard, but I don't know how to get rid of it. Has anyone had a similar problem and or may have any suggestions.

A:Periodic Beep, Computer works great

Try stopping background applications you have running, when the beeps stop, you have your cause.

Does your TV have any kind of set-up menu option where you have to specifically select the 3.5 mm audio input jack to be used for the audio when the given HDMI input port is used for the video?

The first time I played it it went flawlessly.

Could it be a RAM issue? Does it hold memory until it's purged, or what? I have 3 GB on a new compaq presario CQ62.

Any other ideas how to make it great again? I've only had this thing 4 days. :P

Can anyone out there vouch for a really good computer repair place?

My computer keeps locking up and is just doing many wonky things in general. I have a 3 year old Compaq laptop, and I guess I finally have to bite the bullet and take it in-the problems are over my head.

I installed Ad Aware today (been using Spybot for a long time), and twice, after attempting a full scan and about 30 minutes passing, my computer locked up AGAIN. It looked like the scan was close to finishing, and over 200 “critical objects” had already been noted on the progress screen. I imagine a lot of these items are things that are ok by me, but this is one more concern not knowing what they are.

I appreciate the generosity and expertise here and hope this kind of local recommendation request is not annoying in this forum.

The build went well, I booted it up, and the image is awful. It's flickering, it's ghosting, you name it, it does it. Then it blinks and goes blank, comes back on.. and the message states something about the "VRM" not configuring properly.

When I first turn it on, I get a long beeeeep sound and then nothing happens.

Any advice? I haven't got a clue whats wrong 'with it.

A:First build, no video

just 1 long beep? could be a power problem. Check that your PSU is meeting the requirements for your PC and/or its in working order.. also check all power cables are plugged in to whatever devices that needs it (video card, extra 4/8 pin motherboard power etc).

A:New Build - No Video

HDD: From my old computer, already has Windows 7. Click to expand...

you cant do that - it will have different chipset drivers , unless it happens to be an identical motherboard - and depending on the version of w7 maybe tied to the motherboard - is w7 a full retail version ?

RAM: I've tried both the old 2x2GB sticks I had as well as a Corsair 8GB stickClick to expand...

is this ram compatible with the new board

the spec here says 400w PSU and 110W in use - so your 700W should be OK- but others may help

the thing to do is take it out the case it maybe shorting out

build it on the table - make sure its NOT on a conductive surface at all - maybe use the box
connect the motherboard, psu, video, monitor, ram and cpu - and see if that now at least starts to a point where you can get into the bios

Power supply connections possibly.

That board has an 8pin and a 4 pin and a 24 pin main connector. Which did you use?

Mounting stand-offs and screws all in (correct) place?

Does it show Bios screen during boot?

I have been building my first new pc for the past week and a half; I had just received the last of my remaining parts the other day and I assembled it. Once I finished, I plugged in the power cord and let the thing rip... only to find out that the PC was not producing any video out.

Currently, I get no beeps or video... however, the Cpu fan, CD-rom drive and hard drive are all functioning. On my mobo the standby led and power master II led both light up. The boot led although lights up, continues to blink as oppose to going solid like the other two.

I completely new at this and am requesting type of assistance.

Make sure you have both the 20+4 pin main, and 4+4 pin CPU powers from the power supply connected to the board. I'd doubt a 750TX would be completely bricked on arrival, and you have tested pretty much everything else. So yeah, faulty mobo.

You have to go into windows via dvi and use your control panel settings. W/E the equivilent for nvidia control panel is for ati and specifically designate hdmi to be used. My brother had to use a different monitor all together to do this process. Using the dvi monitor kind of as the "host," while booting into windows then plugging up his new monitor via hdmi. Place correct settings then restart. Hope this helps.

Hi, I just recently completed my first computer build. The specs are listed in my profile. I have everything hooked up (hdd, cd, vid card, etc) everything powers on when I turn on the computer (all fans operate, cd will spin, hard drive whirs), but I get nothing on my display. If I disconnect the monitor cable the display tells me to check the cable. After reconnecting the cable the screen reverts to power saving mode.

I have a connector on the mobo that says speaker (it' hooked up) but I have not heard any beeps or other sounds

According to other posts here, it could be a misconnected power conection, a ram chip issue, a bad mobo, or a cpu fan hooked to the wrong location.

My mobo has about 5 fan connections - I have 3 fans (intake, rear exhaust, cpu)

I have tried disconnecting all extraneous peripherals but cannot get the computer to post.

A:New build: no post/no video

Do you have a floppy drive installed? The tracking down of the problem is easier (for me) with a floppy disk drive to which you can boot a Windows 98, Window ME, or DOS MS DOS disc.
If no floppy, disconnect your hard drive, and attempt a boot to a simple CD such as a Windows 98 CD.
Think of ways to get down to the most basic, fundamental setup... floppy disc or CD drive, one memory module, video graphics card, power supply connected.
Then attempt a cold boot using SAFE MODE. If you get nothing on the screen in SAFE MODE, the problem has been narrowed down to power supply, memory module, or video graphics error.
You eliminate everything you can, to start... then when you get something on the screen, diddle with it, then add a component until you make it fail again.

A:Want to build a gaming/video editing pc

My suggestions:

- Stick with Haswell, newer is always better.
- Stick with the 240GB SSD, a 120/128GB one will fill up very quickly especially when you consider overprovisioning.
- Downgrade the mobo to something like the ASUS Z87-A unless you know you'll need the extra features of the Sabertooth.
- The GTX 780 is obviously the quickest card out there but it is also very poor value for money, you might want to consider downgrading to a GTX 770. Your monitor is only 1920x1200 @60Hz so you might not even be able to notice the difference between those 2 cards.
- Get a 750-850W PSU in case you ever want to add another card in SLI in the future. It's always a good idea to invest in a decent PSU for future upgrades.

Very propably the BIOS issue. It needs the latest BIOS to support the E8400. Second in propability, your crap quality PSU is causing all this mischief. I would send it back and get a Corsair 400 W PSU, shouldn't cost much more. (40$ after MIR, free shipping at newegg.) Preferably get a bit higher, 550W model from Corsair, or OCZ StealthXtream 600W if you're low on money.
For the BIOS, get this and flash to the latest one:

I recently put together a new computer, using some parts from my last one. The video card I was going to reuse (PNY GeForce 210 DDR2 512MB PCIe 2.0), but I am having a lot of issues getting it to work. Right now I'm using the onboard video, but as soon as I plug the video card in and fire it up again, no picture from either card. I've gone into the BIOS and changed it so it accesses the PCIe first, and this did nothing. What am I to do, I don't see how this video card isn't compatible, but obviously I'm missing something.

This is where I am on a new system It will be used for surfing the web spreadsheets and the new endeavor of video editing The video editing will be mainly transfering VHS to DVD with quite a bit of editing to trim the unwanted segments Here are the selected components and my thoughts Please feel free to critique advise or bring any other thoughts to this list You cannot hurt my feelings I am so numb after looking for components for six months that I do not think I have any feelings left Case Antec Sonata III Thoughts Has plenty of expandability W Earthwatts PSU should be more than adequate Do not like the front door but can remove mm fan another mm fan should keep it cool Front eSATA port Washable filter requires pulling case Video Editing System New Build out to remove filter The price for the case with PSU is much lower than any other combination Case cooling fan Antec -speed mm Motherboard ASUS P K-E WIFI-AP LGA P ATX Intel Thoughts Has plenty of SATA ports Do not know where the Sonata front eSATA plugs into the motherboard CPU Intel E FBS Ghz MB New Video Editing System Build Cache HS Fan RAM Super Talents DDR GB Thoughts This is an area where I understand the CPU and RAM are performance points to consider for the video editing Will this perform okay Optical Drive- Lite-On X SATA with Lightscribe Thoughts Includes an abridged version of Nero Optical Drive- Lite-On X SATA without Lightscribe Thoughts I have read the suggestion to buy different DVD drives to get different softwares I probably will not spend the extra for the Lightscribe discs Everyone has their favorites For the this seems a good choice Video Card EVGA GT MB Thoughts My understanding is that for video editing the video card is not a major consideration My original pick was the GTS but was told that was overkill for editing Video Capture Input Card Win TV HVR Thoughts It has the audio and video line-in inputs in addition to coaxial input I might want to record over-the-air digital programming in the future Monitor Undecided Thoughts My understanding is that whatever the quot native quot resolution of the monitor the video card should support it I do not like round images to not be round I would like more desk space but I like the clear text image of the CRT Harddrives I already have Seagate GB drives recieved as a Christmas present from my kids If I have left anything out or you have suggestions please let me know This has been much more difficult that the last build in Thank you very much for any and all comments nbsp

A:Video Card Question for New PC Build

If that Haswell claims true 3 monitor support and has just those 3 jacks then I say:

Yeah you should be OK with the on-board video on that Haswell, get an ACTIVE display port cable (just make sure you are DP or mini-DP for that 3rd jack!) to whichever jack is compatible with the new monitors, DVI or HDMI is fine. [keyword active, they are more $, a normal passive one will not work right]

That 6850 is fine for 7 but unknown ports, I would see if the on-die CPU video is good enough before going there.

I am hopeful that on-die (mixed in right with the CPU) GPUs are pretty good.

i'm using the parts outlined here:

The build powers up, I see LED lights and the cpu fan starts spinning. The led's on the keyboard fire up when I hit the power button, but no video,

I don't have a video card, I'm using the onboard video.
I have one stick of ram and one HD, and the dvd drive, nothing else installed.
Any ideas?

I am putting together a new build (first time builder). I purchased MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail. The video card I purchased was SAPPHIRE 100172L Radeon X1550 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail. My question is whether these are compatible? The mother board says NVIDIA and the video card says ATI chipset.

I recently built a new PC.
I had issues powering it on, then I realised I forgot a 4 pin power connector in the corner. Next boot, everything booted up fine, to start. After 3 seconds it powers down, then powers back up and stays up. I think every thing is powered on, disk drive works forsure, the only issue is I get no picture. I am using a BFG 9600GT and used the dvi to vga adapter to connect to my old gateway 2000 vivitron monitor, though I will probably be getting a new monitor soon. I was thinking the problem could be either my video card, video card/monitor non-compatibility(or something to do with the dvi-vga connector) or maybe something else. Or could it be the power problems discussed before?

I am using an Asus P5QL-PRO mobo, 4GB(2X2GB) Gskill memory, 9600GT, E8400 processor and an Antec earthwatts(500 watt).

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Photoshop/HD video/photo editing build

Very decent setup indeed. However, I would get the Corsair TX 750 instead to keep the option of adding a second 6950 in the near future.

Instead of the Antec 300, take a look at the BitFenix Shinobi. Wonderful case at a $60 price point.

So I m trying to build this PC Intel i Asus P TD Deluxe Diamond Radeon HD Corsair TX W When New video in, won't plugged power without EATX12v no build - it on with PC I plug in New PC build - won't power on with EATX12v plugged in, no video without it the pin EATX v connector the PC will not power on The power comes on just for a split second the fans twitch ever so slightly then it all goes off I ve tried plugging in all pins New PC build - won't power on with EATX12v plugged in, no video without it as well as just pins with the same result If I leave the pin EATX v completely unplugged the PC will power on However there is no video output to the monitor and the video card fan does not spin I ve tested the monitor as well as the monitor cable and those are functional I have two of the Diamond video cards and I ve tried both of them with the same result I also tried each one individually in two different PCIE slots I have no idea why plugging in the EATX v would cause the PC not to power on nor why the video card Can anyone off some knowledge that might resolve my problem nbsp

A:New PC build - won't power on with EATX12v plugged in, no video without it


Correction to my original post: The video card fan is spinning and receiving power apparently. The big issue here is that the PC will not power on when the EATX12v is plugged in. If I'm not mistaken, that powers the CPU, does it not? Which would explain why there is no video when I turn the PC on without the EATX12v plugged in.

Is the mobo damaged? I just can't figure any other reason that the PC won't power on with the EATX12v plugged in and will power on without it plugged in.

I have a Window 7 box that will not display on the monitor. This is a box that has worked for a long time. Switched out the video card (PCI express) for a new one still no video. Switched monitors, still no display, installed an old PCI card and still no display. I get nothing when I turn the box on except for the fans starting and the lights on the motherboard. Any suggestions or thoughts I would appreciate. Since I cannot see anything on the monitor, it is hard to diagnose.
