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.)

Does anyone have a clue if it is possible to run an ultrawide 3440x1440 monitor via P50 HDMI port.

I have dual graphics - AMD RADEON R9 M265x and INTEL HD 4600. Not sure which one does the HDMI output on the p50-b. I think the Radeon has 2gb DDR5 if this is important.

I am not planing on playing games, I would like the wide screen for productivity - word, spreadsheets, drawings, charts, diagrams etc. - multitasking.

I'm about to get a new monitor to replace my 15 inch piece of junk, and i'm looking at these two.

I will be buying from tiger direct, because i have 50 bucks off my next purchase there. I am leaning toward the viewsonic, because of the higher resolution, and also it has a 30 dollar rebate, but the acer is a little bigger, and my friend has one, so i know the picture is pretty good. Any suggestions would be great, and thanks in advanced.

Looking at buying this monitor;

has anyone had experience with this brand or this monitor, price is very cheap but specs are very good so i'm slightly dubious about buying. The reviews on the website are entusiastic but not particularly professional. I play games a lot, and use photoshop so I need a pretty good monitor. In regards to this will games play perfectly at 1280 x 1024 despite it being widescreen.

A friend suggested that Samsung maybe a better choice.

Thanks for help.

I picked up a Samsung SyncMaster 930b at a GoodWill near my home, it seemed in great condition when I picked it up, plugged it in at the store, turned right on, Digital popped up in the corner, I thought everything was fine.
Got home, hooked it up to my laptop through a DVI-HDMI cable, the desktop popped up, for about a second, then the screen went black. Now I can only get anything to display when I press the button to switch between Analog and Digital, it will pop up for a second when it switches to digital but then it shuts off again.
I even tried it on an raspberry pi I have and the same thing happened. Unfortunately though I dont have a VGA cable to see if maybe its just the DVI connection. Any advice from anyone or has anyone experienced this before and is it fixable?

A:Picked up a cheap monitor, hoping for an easy fix

check laptop manual if such connection is supported.

Somewhat of a dumb question I guess. I was asked by a friend to build him a very basic system. Actually for what he plans to use it for (internet, email, work processing) and his budget, I doubt I can build it for less than the latest Dell or similar "bargain". Is there a motherboard manufacturer somewhere between the good ones I usually use like ASUS or Abit and the other end of the spectrum like PC Chips?

I received an E-mail selling XP pro for $39.95. What's the catch. The reason I'm looking is I have 3 computers, one with Windows 95, one Windows 98, and my latest with XP. The one with W95 has my business QuickBooks on it and they are forcing me to go to the latest version (2004). Except it won't run on W95. I must go to W98 or later. What is my most economical & prudent way to go here, probably should go Xp since W98 won't be supported for long. I've never had to change Operating systems on an exisisting computer, what are the pitfalls? Sorry for the multiple questions but they are related.

A:A Cheap 600$ Rig or Less?

You can't use an Intel motherboard for an AMD processor, so you will need a new motherboard OR an Intel CPU and DDR2 RAM - older generation of both. Better to sell your parts and buy a new motherboard.

Otherwise looks OK, I'm sure someone will criticize the Cooler Master PSU as they aren't the best quality units, plus you didn't specify what wattage it was; I'd probably recommend going for a Antec or Corsair PSU with at least 500 watts.

I am thinking of upgrading my desktop's memory configuration from 512 MB to 768 MB, with an extra stick of RAM I got from a computer with a fried motherboard. RAM Specs match so there are no compatibility issues

is it most likely that this RAM is damaged or will damage my desktop's motherboard? is this wise?

A:Cheap Way to Get RAM

First of all just because the specs are the same does not mean it is going to work. The days of being able to throw in just about any ram that would fit and have it work are long gone.

For this reason, ram mfg have compatibility checkers on their web sites. You input your motherboard and it will show you compatible ram chips.

Next is the ram damaged? The only way you are going to find out is to install the ram in a known working system and see.

Well based on the information I would not say the PSU is an issue unless its a really poor quality one. Mostly if something is wrong with the PSU it would not result in FPS dips and more likely power off or freezing among other symptoms. The noise is likely coil whine which is a fairly common thing in all honesty but the drops could be related to a specific setting in game.

I would check your driver version first and get the latest if you do not and also download a program to monitor what your card is doing in game as that could lead to more answers. A good program could be MSI afterburner for such a task.

My friend said it is bad because of the fact that it has integrated gpu. I plan to get a hd 5750 video card for my computer.

He gave an argument like this
it's a 3GHz processor, if 800MHz is dedicated for the integrated GPU
then that processor now becomes a 2.2GHz processor
even if you put a video card in
that processing power has been allocated to serve as a GPU
and not as a CPU

I run a family computer with Windows XP Professional. It has 256Mb of Ram, 40GB hard disk and 1.7Ghz processor. It is mainly used for web browsing. It is not used for games.

It is very slow these days and I think that is down to the size of modern applications.

For roughly 100GBP (180 USD) I can buy a second hand machine from Ebay with 1Mb of Ram, 80Gb hard disk and 3GHz processor. How can I get a handle on whether this will solve my problems for the time being?


A:Will a cheap computer do?

$180 seems steep for a 3ghz 1gb ram box.

upgrade the ram on your computer and maybe check your hard drive, if it's going bad, get a new one. you'll be looking at ~$60 US for a gig of ram and maybe another ~$50 for a new hard drive. saw a recertified 40GB maxtor on Newegg for $19.99 this morning.

take care of what you've got, don't waste the $180 on a newish, but still underpowered machine. that'd be my advice.

hi all, I want to buy a nas as some kind of backup and/or storage device.

I am really struggeling when it comes to backup and you can never be sure.... its always the same question in my head. what happens if the backup device is broken and do I need a backup of a backup?
I am addicted to make everything 110% sure

however, it should be between 1 and 2 tb and not too expensive. are there any recommendations for cheap but reliable devices?
How about a solid state drive? are there bigger ones that are not as expensive as if they were made of gold?

thanks for your input!

Firstly, I would like to apologize if this topic is wrongly placed. I couldn't find an appropriate forum for marketing/retail.

I am looking to purchase a 'server' for my LAN, but I want it to be as cheap as possible (to be honest, it's nothing heavy duty - it could even have 512 MB RAM and a really old CPU). The only requirements are to be able to run Windows Server 2008 (R2 (64-bit) would be ideal, but not mandatory), and to have a wireless NIC. When I say 'server', I just mean the operating system - it could be a server, desktop, or laptop, it doesn't really matter to me. The budget is upto 150.

The main purpose of this server will be to run a small active directory.

Does anybody have any recommendations for stores/products? Thanks for the help.

A:Any cheap retailers?

Windows Server 2008 R2 starts at over $1,000 so that pretty much blows your budget.

A:NAS box or use cheap HP microserver


What are you using the server for? Any particular application in mind?
I am looking at whether go with a server or NAS approach. If I go the route of server, most likely using Microsoft Server. That is my area of expertise. At the same time, the ease of QNAP is particular attractive to me. I am researching this model:

TVS-671 with Intel? Core?i5-4590S 3.0 GHz quad-core processor and 8GB DDR3 RAM

Regardless what approach I take, it will be interesting! Must clear with my wife first! It will be in the area of $2,500.00 or $3,000.00 USD.

Hi All,

Being a cheapskate, where can I get myself good quality and attractive themes for XP without having to pay to install StyleXP?

Seems commercialism has the internet in its grasp nowadays! Or am I just getting tight in my old age?

I have my system just as I like it - fully personal.

easy enough - you can change your sounds in control panel, wallpaper in display options - along with font and general tab colour etc, change your icons in properties for that icon or display props and your mouse curser in control panel.

If your unsure how to make any of the changes, feel free to ask. Some great links for those stuff are:

I was resetting the router at least once a day to clear it out. I was sick of it. Back last Christmas I got myself a gift and spent a ton of money for a home router. Its a ASUS RT-AC3200. The prices have come way down now. It is still a lot of money but it works great and I have no problems with everything connecting with it. you get away with a cheaper router? Sure you can. I am sure if you were to see how many users and all the other things with picking out a router you could get away with something cheaper. That's up to you.

That would be the H61 chipset, they have less features than boards with H67, P67, or Z68 chipsets. One of the biggest differences is the single PCIe x16 card slot with only two other card slots. If the board has everything you would need, there is no reason why you wouldn't buy it.

Hello, first of all excuse me if i post this in the wrong section of the forum,if it's a issue then remove my post or move it .I'm looking to buy a cheap GPU, nothing to great but ok enough to hold it's own.

I've narrowed it down to these two : Sapphire Radeon R7 260X and the Palit GTX 750 Ti. The test indicates that the Radeon is slightly better and besides that it's actually cheaper also.I only used nvidia cards so far,to see the amd one surpass the nvidia in quality while offering at a smaller price also makes me a bit suspicions. What card should i chose between these two ? Or would you guys recommend another one at this price range ?

A:Looking for a cheap GPU,help me decide

I would recommend the 750ti. it draws very little power, and has a good amount of performance. You really can't relay on artificial benchmarks because real world results will vary. id consider both cards to be about even in performance, and with the lower power draw I'd go 750ti.

A:Fast and Cheap

Yeah well for $200 dollars you can buy a Pentium III used off Ebay. $200 isn't much for building a fast computer. A fast computer would go from a price range of at least $500-$5000. You cannot do much with $200 in terms of buying a good PC. A CPU dual core at 3.4 GHz is about $250 off Ebay brand new. So Used would be like $150; that is if you are lucky to find it for that price.

Where's the cheapest place you brought hardware? What's the cheapest price you've seen for hardware?

I'm looking for a new hard drive, some more RAM, and a CD burning drive (CD-R or CD-RW. What's the difference between the 2?). We can possibly go all out and get a CD-DVD player/recorder/whatever drive, but for now I just want a CD-R.

The only possible problem is that I'm running on windows 98. Not second edition, the first. Regular 98. I was looking at some drives in Circuit City, and all of them wouldn't go as low as 98.

The budget I'm using is 500 dollars.

Hi all;
I am looking for a legit copy of Dreamweaver 8 for about $100 or less.
I have seen academic versions (which I believe are the same as the full product, but at a much lower cost) but one must provide credentials to get it. I am not currently enrolled in any college, so that might prove difficult.

All I want to do for now is learn the software, and see if I can get a job as a web developer (freelance I think).

I have found nothing at all in this respect. My 30 day trial has expired, and I hardly even got to use it.
I am not going to spend $300-$400 for the full product when I will probably never use it to make a real web page, or use only for personal site.

I would have no problem paying full price if I was going to use it for work where i get paid!

Click the blue 'Download now @bleepingcomputer' button.

On reboot, a log will be produced. It can also be found at C:\AdwCleaner\AdwCleaner[S#].txt
Please copy/paste the contents of the log in your next reply.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

A:Best cheap gaming PC

Your budget is sufficient for what you want. If you have any experience with upgrading a computer, you won't find building it to be that hard. You just gotta get the right parts, one toy have them, they really only plug in one way.
Many here can help you pick out parts that well work together. I'm tied up, so cannot assemble a parts list right now, but am sure somebody will post one before too long. I'd go a nice core i5, 8gb of ram, SSD for OS and games, standard mechanical hard drive for storage, an ati our Nvidia card (whichever you prefer), a solid case (antec, corsair, haf, nzxt), and a power supply around 650watts (corsair, seasonic, pc power and cooling).

does anybody know cheapest and best place to build and buy a gaming pc

A:build pc cheap

If you want to buy the components and build the PC yourself, which is normaly cheaper but harder, the cheapest place to buy good components is Ebuyer:

If you want to have your PC built for you, Cyberpower is the best choice:

Both these places are the cheapest poosible in most cases, and on cyberpower you can fully customise your pc , hope this helps.
