Preferred Solution: I need a 128 MB 6600 GT AGP with excellent cooling/fan.

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.)

A:Quite and excellent cooling fan?

i know im not a guru or anything and i dont know much about fans to recommend any but i thought it might help the next people who read this to know what you are trying to cool....you said you are building a new computer so im guessing you are wanting some case fans and a cpu fan? might also help if you posted your build so we know what your trying to cool so the tech wizards can tell you the appropriate fan/s. also how much are you wanting to spend.

I've just ordered a new PC and the seller has installed a 6600LE (256MB PCI-e) instead of a 6600 (256MB PCI-e) although I paid for the latter. Can anyone point out what the difference is?
As always, any guidance is much appreciated
 

A:Difference between 6600 & 6600 LE ?

You have been ripped off.
The 6600LE is a significantly slower and cheaper video card with less pixel pipelines and lower clock rates.

Hello,Yesterday the cooling fan 90b broke inside my laptop.  I heard a low noise like a CD was spinning incorrectly and than my computer overheated and shut down.  Upon restart I got the 90b error message.  Can anyone please point me in the direction of a guide on how to replace my 90b fan, and a place where I can buy a replacement part?  Thank you very much, ThomasBrodsky

A:Cooling fan 90b error message and malfunctioning cooling fan...

Dear Thomas, 90b Error message occurs when there is firmware or a Hardware issue with the fan. Please install the following update on the Notebook. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp67001-67500/sp67052.exe It is the bios update, most likely to fix if its a firmware issue. However, if the issue persists, kindly contact our support center.we will be happy to help you fix it. Cheers!

A:Warning: A problem with the cooling system has been detected. cooling problem

OEM Laptop parts?...

OEM laptopparts?... Good luck call the builder of the system and get a new one even off warrenty they will often ship the parts free if it is just a fan. I would run the lappy opened for a few seconds to see in the fan is running, DONOT think about putting one finger on the system when it is like this and don't move till you turn the system off cotton shirt and denem is a good thing to ware when doing this to reduce the static charge grab the power cable and hold it a second or two then turn the system off holding the cable, ot dispell static and the human body cannot feel static charges less then 3000 volts and at 30 you can kill parts in your computer... on some systems even less then 30 v will kill it. As far as the temp reader when you replace the fan on most laptops the reader is build into the fan so if it was the reader then that will be fixxed if the problem continues they I would E Bay the system for parts and start looking at new systems... As far as Intel build Laptops go get a Dell or a Toshiba if you want some real Power for you money gen and AMD Rig from Aser... I like their Farrie Line as they have evrything you will need in a laptop and they will handle some real crazy newer games... there is a few Asers that will handle HL2 and Doom3 not at max setting but it will run better then some towers that are playing the games... Just rember that with Dell you are doning to pay for the better inhouse tech support then you will if you buy something from HP were most of the call tech work is contracted out to a Quebec Canadian ferm where they speak French first and English second, if you are lucky you will get a Western Canadian brack where they Speak English. 90% of all Dell calls go to their Western Canadian Centers and soon to be all of their calls as they are closing up shop in India and going with the higher costs of Tech help in the Canadian and U.S. market. Dell Call centers in the U.S. are for customer out side the U.S. and the Canadian ones are for people out side of Canada as that is how most call centers work. Sony makes some good systems aswell but you will pay alot mor then even Dell and tech help is not that good.

I spend quite a bit of time in hotels so I am looking for VPN software that is fast and will connect to a trusted secure host server with a reliable reputation. I tried HotSpotVPN and found that it worked very well. However, I discontinued with HotSpotVPN because they have filters that block various websites that they feel are unnecessary for a business computer. My laptop in not a business computer but my own personal laptop. I also tried WiFi Guardian 2009 trial but discovered that it does not work with Windows 7 yet. Anyone with suggestions? I prefer the payed for software because they are usually ad free and are also usually connected to a dedicated fast and secure server. Thanks!

A:Looking For Excellent VPN Software.

Here is more information on setting up a vpn on a Windows 7 machine: Set up a remote connection to your workplace using VPN.

If you are looking for compatible software I suggest you search at the Windows 7 compatibility center and compare based on your needs: Windows 7 Compatibility Center home.

First off i have a Thermaltake Armor Jr. Case. The problem is the front L.E.D standard intake fan isn;'t taken in air at all. There is no wind blowing in the case, and yes the fan is mounted properly when i checked.

So my question is, what is a good intake fan with good airflow and at a good air rate.

Also, anyone know if the side window vent is a 90mm or 92mm fan placement?

Note: The intake fan is 120mm.

any help will be the best thanks.

Please provide links with the item please.
 

A:Good to Excellent intake fan please.

the best way to guage a fan's performance is by the CFM rating. the higher the rating, the more air it can push or suck in. and one of the best ones i've seen has a cfm rating of about 63. normal ones i've seen are around the 35cfm mark. and this is one is advertised as being exceedingly quiet as well. it's very high quality. you might be able to tell that from the price. but it's well worth it if you want performance and quality.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185006

25 dollars. it's 120mm as per specifications.

i'm not sure about the side vent. but it appears to be a simple 90mm vent.

A:No connectivity despite excellent signal

Having both the Belkin Wireless Controller and Windows Wireless controller on at the same time could cause this. Try turning one of them off.

Not sure how to turn the Belkin off, but here is how to turn off the Windows controller.

Go into Control Panel, Administration Tools, Services.
Go to the bottom of the list to find the Windows Controller.
Wireless Zero Configuration for XP, WLAN Auto Configuration for Vista/7.
Double click on the controller name to pull up Properties Window.
On the General tab,
Next to Startup type, click the down arrow and select Disabled from the list.
At the bottom under Service status click the Stop button.
Click OK to apply the changes.

Usually the install cd gives you the choice of just loading the drivers and using the Windows Controller, which is what I did with my Belkin USB adapter.

A:Is DDR2 excellent memory?

Is there a reason for asking?

You can't just pick and choose the memory type you want. The memory type must match the design called for by the motherboard. DDR3 is the latest memory design and DDR4 will probably be available before long.

Hello everyone. I need some advice on some of the best 17/19 inch Flat screen CRT monitors. I am mainly a hard core gamer and want to upgrade to a new system by first getting a new monitor. I have around 550.00 dollars to spend on one(but if I can save some of that it's fine with me I really like the Sony 19 ' Trinitron Monitors because they have a nice, sharp image. However, the two aperature grill "tie wire" shadows lines slighty annoy me. Is there any other monitor out there that doesn't have these lines and is either equal or better in image quality and sharpness? If it's cheaper than Sony, I am all for that because it seems Sony Monitors are expensive. If someone could tell me which one they suggest and the link where I could purchase it I would greatly appreciate it.
 

A:need advice on excellent gaming monitor

Don't get a flat screen if you wnat to do serious gaming...they won't handle it. And for $500 you would be hard pressed to find anything of any real quality for that little cash. I would look at Viewsonic monitors..they have always been fairly good and have a good warranty.

Steve Friedl, Microsoft MVP, developed an awesome and highly detailed article on how SQL Injection attacks work. DBAs and System Administrators need to be on the latest and greatest SPs and security updates for SQL-Server and other RDBMS's. Excellent Article: SQL Injection Attacks by Examplehttp://www.unixwiz.net/techtips/sql-injection.htmlSQL Injection is caused by unverified/unsanitized user input, and its main idea is to convince the application to run SQL code that it was not intended to run. If the application is creating SQL strings natively, i.e. on the fly, and then running them, it's straightforward to create some real surprises. There have been other papers on SQL injection, including some that are much more detailed, but this one shows the rationale of discovery as much as the process of exploitation.

Hi, Im extremely frustrated with this problem.I am using a built in atheros
AR5005G network adaptor and cannot connect to my router at home. I have checked the DHCP to make sure its enabled and the router seems to be set up fine. All i get is a limited connection with excellent signal. It says acquiring IP address then hits limited connectivity. The laptop can connect to all other networks I have tried (relatives, friends) but wont connect at home. Other laptops in the house connect though. Any help would be appreciated. And the laptop that wont connect is a toshiba sattelite L25.

Thanks

A:Limited Connection with Excellent signal

Go to Start/Run and type CMD and hit enter. In the Command Prompt type in Ipconfig /all the Default Gateway is the IP address of your router. Now ping the router. Now type Ping and the IP address of the Default Gateway. You should get a reply. If it times out, then restart the modem, router, and PC.

Hi everyone
I've often "Nagged" about the inadequancies of AV software

I made a post about inconsistencies between the same version running on VISTA amd W7 where the VISTA version reports a disk as 100% clean whereas the W7 version finds a (KNOWN) trojan on the same disk.

(That post is also in this section of the Forum)

They at least seemed to be very interested in this and will get back to me asap.

(And this is for the FREE version).

At least AVAST seem to understand the meaning of the word "Support" without having to go round and round through endless telephone menus and the absolute horror of those "Indian" call centres.

I'll be interested in what they come up with.

Cheers

The signal appears excellent, however the internet doesn't work. Well, a few details. The router is in the basement, 3 floors up is the computer receiving the signal. I have an extender on the second floor that's 54mbps, however on the computer it says "Excellent 108Mbps" or something of the like. I'm not entirely sure what's going on, another user can connect to the wifi on the network. Any ideas?

hi
i have a new toshiba laptop t-230
the wireless connection, does connect if the signal with the router is excellent or very good. if we count it with the signal green lines, it connects only wen the strength is 4-5 lines.
if is lower, even 3 (good signal) or 2 lines (fair signal) it wont connect. If i connect normally with excellent signal and move in another room with good signal, it still disconnects. my other 4 laptops and iphone in the house work fine.

1. i have uninstalled the drivers and put new ones.. same thing
2. i have formated the laptop but still no luck.
3. i have put a usb wireless card and it is working fine.

it seems that there is an issue with my atheros AR9285 card. can I ask from toshiba to replace the network card? is there anything else i havent tried?

thanks in advance

Okay, it's a win7 64 bit i5 computer.
Shaw is my provider.

The wireless bar is at 3-4 and tells me it is 300mbps
However it certainly is not.

It's slow and often will just nit work for a good 30 seconds before it comes back to it's miserable form. I play BF3 but lag like death but sometimes my Internet is fine and even Utube videos will load quickly. But 75% of te time it is slow and almost unusable. And since It keeps dancing between those it's very unpredictable.

I have installed an antivirus and cleaned my PC. Support told me to disconnect and reconnect my router and I did that.

Any ideas? A laptop in the exact same position has perfect Internet.

Hi there,

Head to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test, run a test by clicking on a icon near your location, at the end you will get the option to copy the result link, post it here please.

Wireless connection is based on your connection too the router, not the speed of your connection, fair enough to say the higher the signal the better the connection. Lets see the speedtest.net result.

Also if both laptops are wireless, and the speedtests are the same for both, then check your antivirus, try disabling it for a while.

Still though, version 9 does a great job for me and I have restored my PC over and over with an image of my hard drive; an image that was made at THAT time. I bought it for $30 with a $20 matching coupon and I hardly think this will ever be cheaper; not in a BOX delivered to your front door. Postage is probably an extra $5. Your call. (I have bought from this vendor before---no problems.) Some may think it is pirated software but I would not know!! And I doubt there would be support from Acronis for it!!

A:Refurbisher who actually restores to excellent working condition

Hi,
Well refurbish :/

I would imagine any would not be refurbished if they were worth having they would still be in the owners hands
Some companies recycle machines which most came from x-p days which are inadequate for win-7 64 bit.

For the least amount of irritation..... I'd probably think build your own rather than buying refurbished units
Of course this is not going to be cheap by any means
So for one post a realistic budget

I personally wouldn't even consider a refurbished unit
I'd lean more to upgrading an older one you might already have.

Alright TSGers, I need your help for this one.
I have 5 wireless PCs and a Linksys WRT160N router. 2 PCs are using Wireless-N Cards and the others are using Wireless-G. The problem is that they all connect to the router and have excellent signal strength but the speed is horrible. Even in the same room on wireless the speeds are horrible. However, when you connect directly to the router, speeds are out of this world. Any ideas? This is happening on multiple routers. (Netgear Wireless-N, Linksys WRT150N) What could the interference be?

Thanks!

So I have a wireless network setup in our 4 bedroom apartment and I am connecting wirelessly on my desktop with a usb drive(hub is in another room). Half of the time I will have an excellent connection at 54Mbps, and then for whatever reason, will just plummet to 1Mbps but still says excellent signal strength. Right now its working perfectly fine, however an hour or so from now, will probably crash randomly. I have a feeling its my firewall because its disabled right now, but im not sure. Any other ideas?
 

A:Signal Strength = Excellent, Speed = 1 Mbps

Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter.

Could be the adapter or router beginning to fail. How to recover after the bandwidth plummets?

In an apartment building there are lots of opportunities for wireless interference, such as from 2.4Ghz cordless phones and other networks on the same or close channel.

Firewalls either block or not; I have never heard of them affecting speed as in your symptoms.

I am getting great connectivity on a wi-fi network 80% of the time, but extremely limited access 20% of the time. What should I do to try to resolve this?

Other users are getting this great connectivity 100% of the time, so the problem seems limited to my computer. This does not happen on other networks, so the problem seems limited to this computer and this internet/wi-fi connection. When I have a bad connection (20% of the time) it most often can't even load a webpage, or if it does, it loads it without images or styling.

Steps I've tried (haven't worked):
- Flushed DNS memory/settings
- Cleared cache
- Reset wi-fi adapter in my computer
- Restarted computer
- Tested various browsers and sites

Any ideas of things to try? I do not have access to the wifi-signal (it's an office).

A:Excellent signal strength but little to no internet connectivity

Copied this from a post by pedroguy.

Ok:This is what we know about that Atheros adapter.Boils down to two possibilities :
Encryption and or driver issue.
I think both of those are covered below.
Courtesy of ETAF and Terrynet on the Networking Forum:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Atheros AR5007EG & AR5007
We have recently been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters over the last few months, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and windows Vista.

The adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
--- Please post back here if that works or does not work.

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver." That apparently has worked for some posters.

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section, as some manufactures, appear to now have a working driver available.
Toshiba - update has worked for some PCs
HP The latest HP Atheros driver dated Sept 2010 has fixed the issue - so check the driver date, However, that does NOT apply to all HPs / Compaqs machines
- the poster did an online scan for driver updates on the HP website here HP Product Detection which resulted in a solution. Solved: Can't connect to internet wirelessly - Atheros AR5007 Wifi through Clear Comm - Tech Support Guy Forums

If you can post the Make and EXACT model of your PC here, along with the windows version you have and we will see if we can find the driver and will post a link as a reply here.

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) A few posters here with the same issue have found that the driver from this site ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows resolved the issue

I would think about resetting the router if you haven't done so already. After resetting the router go through the wireless settings again, set your SSID, password and also use WPA2 security with AES encryption.

I just installed 32-bit win7 ultimate on my laptop, and am (still) having a spot of bother getting my internets from a public router located near my girlfriend's place.

My problem is the following: I connect to the router fine and the signal quality is excellent, but there is no internet access at all.
The wireless connection icon in the taskbar shows a yellow warning triangle, and when hovering over it with my mouse pointer I read the following: "no internet access".

Last week when I still had xp on the laptop I had the exact same problem: excellent connection, no internet access.
Both with xp and win7 I had no problems at all connecting to my router at home.

I have been connecting to the troublesome router for months on my iphone, without any issues. Any random macbook also connects to it without any problems.

When I run diagnostics I am told the following: "wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

TCP/IPv4 is set to "obtain an IP address/DNS server automatically", and has been since the beginning, with DHCP enabled.

I've tried anything and everything I found floating around on the internet (including disabling TCP/IPv6 as well as a whole slew of other settings), but to no avail.

Obviously, my wireless card (Intel wireless wifi link 4965AGN) works perfectly (works great on my home router), and so does the public router from which I'm trying to get internet access (works admirably on anything mac: iphone, macbooks).

My guess is the problem lies somewhere in my settings, and I have been going over all of the relevant settings I could find some twenty times. No love.

I really hope any of you can offer some advice, I'm getting super angry!

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I also updated the wireless card driver to the very latest, no worky

It asks me to format. It starts to format then freezes.
Now I'm pissed. So I make a boot disk. Try format c: try fdisk try to get into the c:\ drive. and there is no such drive.
So now my friends I need to know what to do before shelling out at the pc service center.

A:My Satellite Pro 6600!

You haven't told us what operating system this is, but freezing during a format operation would suggest a hardware problem first and foremost. So you may well need some professional help to resolve this.

The lack of of a c:\ drive would be understandable if the "clean" install had removed partitions but then froze or if the partition information had been damaged on the drive.

A typical XP clean install would be able to do all this without any separate fdisking or formatting on your part just as long as you follow the prompts.

Have you installed the latest drivers for the card?
If not then you should immedately download and install the latest drivers.

Have you updated DirectX or did you already have 9.0c? If you don't have DirectX 9.0c then update it asap.

Have you tried to re-configure the graphics in your games?
Some games can be changed from Software Renderer which looks crap to D3D renderer which is you graphics card. This is usually with older games though.

Check your Device Manager to make sure that the pc is not reporting any errors with the card.

A:Evga 6600 256 PCI-E

It should definatly do the trick, I think it would do the job even on full graphics for those games. Of course it would depend on things like your chipset, and amount of ram u have. I run something compareable, radeon 9600 pro 256 mb, AMD 64 3200+ 2.2 ghz, 1 gig of ram with an Nforce3. It can run these games perfect.

If your worried about playing full performance, just buy a bit of an older game first, to make sure it runs well. Like Bf1942, call of duty ect..

If they run to your standards go ahead and get doom3, farcry, or halflife2.

A:Having troubles with my 6600

Do you have the power connectors plugged into the card and have an adequate PS. If you do then you need to return the card. You should not have to hand start the fan.

I just bought a XFX 6600 card , XXX Edition , 256 MB installed memory , and by using coolbits I viewed my card's clock speeds and discovered :

Core clock : 450 Mhz
Memory clock : 800 Mhz

I read many info about 6600 cards , and not a single piece of information says a 6600 card is on 450/800 , is my card overclocked ? what's the original settings for my card ? Do I leave it this way , or decrease it's speed ?

Am not sure what to do ...

Thanx in advance .


 

A:My XFX 6600 card !

If it doesn't say 450/800, what DOES it say? Does it say anything? Sometimes they don't say, but don't worry about it. Just leave it at the setting it comes with and you'll be fine.

it costs the same..
the 5900 has 256bit memory bandwidth, but is based on the nv35 (5900 XT's GPU), while the 6600 has 128bit and based on the nv43...
i havent seen any comparrison for these two, which is odd... because they got the same price tag... the Gainward - GeForce PCX5900 128MB costs 140$, and the 6600 costs Gigabyte - GeForce 6600 128MB costs 130$

which do i choose??
 

A:pcx 5900 or 6600??

This should help

the guy who hooks me up with stuff is offering me 2 cards right now. geforce 6600 256 mb for 190$ or 6600GT 128 mb for 210$.... does the memory make a difference in these cards? is it worth the 20 bucks more for the better card?
also i heard increasing the video aperture could help so the vram wouldn't matter as much....?

(p.s. i know i can get them online for a little cheaper, but there's no shipping, and this guy always gets my stuff and helps me out when stuff goes wrong so thats why i buy from him)
 

A:6600 256 Mb Or 6600gt 128 Mb??

Get the gt, it's faster, and not much more money.

If anyone has this video Issues OC 6600 BFG GT card and is experiencing problems including green or purple polygons after a certain amount of play this thread addresses that problem I searched for along time to try and find a solution to the issue but BFG 6600 GT OC Issues to no avail The reason for the green purple polygons is that the card is running to hot I recently bought Gothic and have been able to run it fairly decent until about minutes in the screen begins to fill up with the green purple polygons I experience a little of this during Counter Strike Source but not as bad as this My card was running at F during Gothic and I found out that the cooling unit on the card is absolutely useless For now I have a small DC fan on it with the case open until I get paid and buy some proper equipment The fan is keeping the card at a cool F during gameplay and solved my problem which was better than the F when running at idle FYI I bought G for at target ghz p intel Kingston gig ram PC BFG GT OC AGP Dia DC fan light blue mounted on my desk nbsp

A:BFG 6600 GT OC Issues

Lol, I think we know the reasons for "artifacting".

Aftermarket cooling generally solves this problem.

hi,

ive got a XFX geforce 6600 GT, and the fan on it is very loud. i don't plan on overclocking and using the card for basic uses. no games or anything.

can i just yank the fan out?

im running on an asus P4pe motherboard with a zalman cnps7700 fan...
intel p4 2.4 mhz
and 1 120mm fan in the front of the case blowing through the hard drives on "silent" mode......

thanks!
 

A:do i really need a fan for my GeForce 6600 GT ?

No you can't, the card will overheat even when running 2D (unless you seriously underclock it). You can install silent ones such as the Zalman VF700.

You can always try to install the Gainward Expertool which allows you to makes the fan run at different speeds depending on the workload & heat output. The thermal probe on the 6600GT needs to be active though & some brands disabled it for some reason.

can 2 6600 gts in sli mode compete against a 7800 gt. a game inparticular is COD2 which takes real advantage of SLI right
 

A:2 6600 gt's V a 7800

Not even close. 7800's blow those 6600GT's out of the water (even if they double team a 7800. :haha: Check out tomshardware.com for some good comparisons of benchmarking and gaming with the setups you are wondering about. (I'm still wanting a 6600GT, despite it's lack of power)

hello,this is my first post to this forum, hopefully someone can help me. i bought a 2nd identical rosewill 6600 pcie video card from newegg this week, since then been trying to get the drivers install so i can run in sli, it starts to install them then when the screen goes off then back on windows xp locks up then i have to manually reset the computer.
 

A:2nd 6600 no good?

You can test it by removing the first Rosewill card and replacing it with the new one and just run one (for testing purposes). What brand, model and wattage is your power supply? It might be too weak to run two graphics cards.

Hi guys i was wonder what would be the best upgrade for me.

X800GT with 512 megs more memory or 6600GT with no exta purchases.

i have a:

Athlon 64 3200+ winchester
asus a8v-e deluxe
512 megs of kingston ram
asus 6200tc vid ard
160 gig sata HDD

IF you can just put in your opinion i would make you feel rather apreciated.
 

A:X800,GT or 6600,GT

you'll need 1Gb of ram to play games such as farcry and bf2 well.

I have a dell insperon 4600 and it came with a GeForce 5200. i just bought a PNY GeForce 6600 i uninstalled the drivers for my old card and placed my new one in i didnt plug in the power cords that came with it. the fan runs and the computer turns on but the monitor just stays blank. please help!
 

A:the dreaded 6600 help!!

Did you plug it into the monitor? Did you actually take out the old card too?(you didn't say you did and I'm just getting the stupid questions out of the way first )
If by "power cables that came with it" you mean this:

then I'd highly suggest plugging that in
What kind of PSU are you working with?
