Q: Processors: Can speed be increased?

Can processor speed be increased without changing or removing any harddware

Preferred Solution: Processors: Can speed be increased?

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: Processors: Can speed be increased?

Depends on your specs and what you mean by increase.

Some processors are unlocked and can be over-clocked by increasing the processor frequency multiplier (which is multiples of the system bus frequency). This only effects the stability of the processor if clocked to high.

Many systems even if the processor is not unlocked, can still be overclocked by increasing the system bus frequency. Changing this frequency effects everything in the system, which can cause system instability with anything.
System builders will lock both system bus and frequency multiplier, by customizing the system BIOS. Limiting the BIOS is the number one reason, I do not like prebuilt systems.

Hi I may be missing something pretty basic here as my tech knowledge is pretty poor I have recently paid my internet provider to increase my connection speed from meg package to meg as I need a faster connection Ive done a speed test and it says that my speed is pretty much what my increased to much speed? but internet dont in speed 4meg change from 1meg see the service provider has promised but when I use the wifi in my place which I used with the original meg connection it doesnt seem any faster at increased my internet speed from 1meg to 4meg but dont see much change in speed? all I thought I d be flying from one website to the next but its not happening that way at all Someone said I should consider buying an aircard to increase my computers ability to recieve more data from the increased my internet speed from 1meg to 4meg but dont see much change in speed? router but then someone else said that is not what an aircard is for Anyway Im stuck and would appreciate any help i could get as at the moment Im paying alot more cash each month for no improvement Thanks in advance for any help Cheers nbsp

I think the computer question actually is: how does the end-user determine the cause or causes for the slowdown, and deal directly with those causes? To begin the hunt, what was changed if anything in the startup & services portions? Program[s] and/or utility[s] was added or removed? Anti-virus/anti-malware shield[s] or operations changed? Windows 10 Prime changes?

Just before the slowdown -- was any sort of PC-fixerupper, tunerupper, driverupdater, softwareupdater, slimmer/trimmerupper, etc. run? I hope not, for such utilities almost always give more long-term grief than any short-term joy.

BTW, I ask about security/monitoring program changes because sometime after I changed something in my set up, slowdown! I had to reverse said changes or tweak and tweak and tweak until smooth operations was restored.

how to improve my processing speed in my computer? i frequently deleted temp files and downloaded files, other than these what will i do?

A:how increased processing speed

The only way to improve processing speed is to get a faster processor.
Tell us the specs of your computer. Make and model# of computer or motherboard, Processor, RAM (memory) Free HDD space?
Also click on the link in my signature for PC Running slow? and try those things.

A:Just increased DSL speed, now its very weird.

If you suspect the router is a problem connect a computer directly to the modem and test.

It sounds like you are about as far from the CO (or closest "booster") as you can be to still get DSL at all. If that is the case then trying to get higher bandwidth by upgrading your service can make things worse. You may want to talk to tech support to see if there is any truth to my guess. (Don't talk to customer/sales support; they will be quite happy to sell you whatever service they can.)

I was just wondering, if both the local area network and wireless network connections are enabled on a machine, will the LAN having a (default) speed of 100 mbps and the WLAN having one of 54 mbps, make the overall connection speed increase? As in maybe 154 mbps all together?

I got a problem last weeks my CPU speed is increased from stable temperature to temperature its got increased slowly few days ago its was just my CPU is not overclocked and my CPU fan and heatsink is new my CPU temperature sometimes decrease to and i dont know what may be the reason of this to happen by the way few days ago my PC was lagging and freezing and last night its wasn't even moving after reboot today in the morning i got the check disk and i got CPU is stable While speed increased, Temperature FAN much errors i want to find way how to return my PC to stable performance i also scanned my PC and got many viruss CPU Temperature increased, While FAN speed is stable but its always happen again maybe i need to change my thermal paste or my PC is infected or just my CPU is too old samy with my storage CPU its increased to and sometimes decrease to standard Dual Core GHZ E Not overclocked GPU GT Ram GB Motherboard ASUSTeK Computer INC P KPL-AM Socket standard temp

A:CPU Temperature increased, While FAN speed is stable

hello and Welcome to BleepingComputer!
 
what Windows version are you using?
 
What type of Cpu fan and heatsink is it that you have? are you confident that the paste (TIM, thermal interface material) was applied as it should be? it is common for the home user to apply the correct amount to the cpu but then there is one thing that happens quite often, after the cooler is located and before the final securement with the latch pins, the unit slides around, which redistributes the paste to a less than perfect amount and consistency.. another common misdeed is failure to remove the old paste properly before applying the new TIM. For the temperatures to increase incrementally  like that, that would be interpreted as the TIM and heatsink needs to be applied again as it maybe settled and isn't functioning properly.
 
another theory is that for the  CPU temperatures to be fluctuating like that, there has to be processes active that aren't consistent, if you pull up your task manager, it can help to locate those processes, you can click on processes and then the cpu tab, to list most to least. in my experience, the common antivirus applications can sometimes spring into activity and spike the cpu usage for a certain time, therefore increasing heat and cpu fan spead temporarily.
 
also, if you believe that your PC has become infected with Malware, there is a section here devoted to that topic, (am i infected?)
 
the checkdisk error implies corrupted files or hardware clock speed mismatch.  you can give the chkdsk /r procedure a try, but that takes a while to complete.
 
 
anyway, i am the type that believes that a core 2 duo PC is certainly worth preserving as it runs  fine with most home uses and contemporary applications.  I can definitely understand a home user shying away from the "just buy a new PC"  mentality. PCs are a significant investment for most folks, and buying a new one should be entertained as last resort.

I pulled a bunch of animated and static cursors off the net. I installed most from winzip onto my work winnt computer. I had no problems with the animations for many months until one day the computer did something odd. And it's difficult to explain what it was, since it was some time ago. The animated cursors have increased there speed 10 fold or more. The slow galloping horse is now in the Kentucky Derby. the slow spinning multitudes of balls spinning around a cone are now nauseatingly fast. This applies to all the animated cursors. I may have a hundred or more installed. I believe the extensions are either .ani or .cur.

Anyone have a clue as to how to slow them down without uninstalling/reinstalling?

I installed Win7 64 bit OS in my existing computer which had Win XP 32 bit. My Comcast download speed immediately increased by 45% (from 15.5mb to 22.5mb). Upload speed remained the same at 10mb.

I just put together a second computer with Win 7 (to replace my back up that had also had Win XP) and got the same exact result in increased speed.

All computers were connected by wire to the same router/modem so that is not playing a part in this .

Can anyone tell me why my upload speeds are so much higher with Win7 vs Win XP?

A:Win7 vs WinXP Download Speed Increased ?

Because the TCPIP stack got a refresh and got tweaked for performance on Win Vista/7/8.

Can anyone tell me what this means I am thinking of buying a new pc and am not confident enough to build it myself. Have been looking in the usual places that people who build there own rigs probably disapprove of, when am looking at a certain pc from dell it says this

The memory speed of 4 DIMMS configuration will be limited at 1066MHz with Athlon II X4 630 and Phenom II X4 820 processors. ...

If the memory works at 1300 Mhz and the Processor only supports 1066 Mhz what does that mean ?
 

A:AMD processors limited to 1066MHz memory speed?

AMD CPU's have the memory controller built into them. Faster memory will just have the speed of it set to what the memory controller can support.

So if the memory works at 1300Mhz, but the controller only supports 1066Mhz, then the 1300Mhz memory will just slow down to 1066Mhz.

But Dell only says that the speed of the memory will be limited on those CPU's only if all 4 ram slots are filled with memory. Unless you will be upgrading the memory in the system when you get it, you dont need to worry about it.

Hope this helps.

I was aghast for reinstallations of Windows 8 because of reasons unknown which ran operating system into trouble.
Now I know why this happened, because I selected maximum number of processors shown in 'Msconfig', which really doesn't exists ('Msconfig' showed 4 processors for Intel Core i3210).
From next start Windows 8 ran into trouble and within a day or two of using this desktop stopped responding, happened for all operating systems where I selected maximum number of processors shown in 'Msconfig'.
Therefore do not select maximum number of processors from 'Msconfig'.

Why the strangeqe question?

you see I have a Dell XPS 15z laptop with a core i7 processor, 8 Giga RAM running Windows 7 Premium and I also have an HP desktop with a core two duo processor, 3 Gigs of ram running Windows 7 Professional but surprizingly the desktop runs faster than the laptop when I give them both tthe same task on Photoshop CS6 ( a processor heavy application). I feel that I have been cheated into buying the Dell laptop which at the time of purchase was expensive in the is country.

A:Are there any new processors that are faster than Core I7 processors

Does it use 100% cpu for a long time? (so cpu is the bottleneck)
Is it a multithreaded application, so are tasks split in many subtasks and use different cores?

Im working on building a server and I need an AMD processor in it. Right now, im looking at AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA3800BVBOX for $322. The purpose of this server is just a place that 4 computers can access. Its not going to be set up as a server, but just Windows XP without a monitor. Im running an intel pentium 4 on the computer holding the network right now, and it is doing fine. Sometimes its just a little slow. So, I would like a little better than a Pentium 4, but AMD. Also, less then $322. What can I get?

Thanks,

I finally took my computer to a NEW repair person and after a year of daily crashes they diagnosed the slot my memory was plugged into was faulty. Took them one try and I have a computer that no longer crashes daily! YIPEE! All this after the memory caused a major crash and my computer had to be wiped out and reprogrammed. Now while getting things back to the settings I wanted and things I had on it and a few new additions I noticed if I go into my computer and click on the C drvie to properties that nearly 3/4's of my pie shows its used space. What do I need to go and ask for to make my computer have more space so I can download more programs onto it? Any idea of cost to increase or is this not possible on all computers??? Thanks for any info .SHARI

A:will increased RAM help my situation?

Hi,
Might buy you a little time but the program would also rely on graphic's too so don't expect a world of difference
Ram would give you a little faster startup depending on your startup list.
With your low spec's cpu I'd say don't waste a lot of money 4gb should be fine or 2x2gb buy a 4 gb pack.
Crucial is a reasonable brand

3 gb ,320gb, 64 bit
512 mb graphics card

its a new one.the first few months the startup time was less. i had disabled certain unwanted startup services and programs. but recently i noticed that its taking very much time to start up. what used to be a minute and a half has drastically increased to 2 mins.

give me sme ways by which i can improve my startup time. and what are the possible reasons.

A:increased start up time

What I did was go to the start button and type in mscongfig in search programs and files then click on msconfig look in start up tab and unchecked items that I didn't want in startup. Then I rebooted and computer then started up faster.
This is just one way but it works for me and I am from the OLD School.

And welcome to Win7 Forums.

WTF I ran windows defragmenter in safe-mode about a month ago and noticed it moving files much more aggressively than usual and it ran for a good hours normally takes min max and is scheduled to run monthly This wasnt the first time Ive run it from safe-mode I occasionally like once a year do this in hopes of defragging system files that are normally in use by Windows I ran the defragmenter in normal windows mode and then restarted the puter and then analyzed Which brings us to this screenshot As you can see it says that I DO NOT need to defrag but I see an aweful lot of red in that graph Ive never seen that much red on any computer ever before So WTF is goin on here and how do I fix it And also it is obvious to me that the HD is as fragmented as the defragger says it is because I can hear the HD clicking like crazy when I open anything And it takes about times longer for most things to load than it used to SMART is enabled and disk is healthy Scandisk didnt find any bad sectors HD is a Maxtor DiamondMax GB SATA Defrag actually increased fragmentation! rpm WinXP partition is GB and there are Linux partitions journalised ext and swap that total GB

A:Defrag actually increased fragmentation!

Well...I would interpret that as indicative of file system/partition or hard drive problems. Either would probably produce the graph you indicated.

Did you run chkdsk /r before attempting the defrag?

Why did you run it in safe mode?

Hi there,

I have just increased the memory on my Packard bell istart 2479 and since doing so, I have no sound. The Speaker symbol in the bottom corner has a red x on it and it says No Audio output device is installed. This is really starting to frustrate me now because I cant seem to fix it. Please Help

A:Ive increased memory RAM from 1g to 4g but now have no sound, why?

Your specs.






Quote:
OS 32bit windows 7 enterprise


I surly not understanding Windows 7 Enterprise with such small amount of ram.

Where did you get your copy of Enterprise and who installed it?

It would be helpful if you filled in your system specs completely including which sound system you are using.

This tutorial by Brink should help you.

Welcome to SF!

If the graphics is onboard the motherboard it would likely use more RAM if you add more, but your actual VRAM would remain the same. Onboard graphic generally use a fair chunk of the RAM installed.

Hi;

I hope someone can help. I always keep an eye on my firewall traffic log, and over the past few weeks I have noticed a much higher amount of incoming traffic attempting to access my computer. About 90% of it comes from the same IP address (or similar range).

I know this is often caused by some infection/spyware, but I have run every scan in the book, and nothing comes up. Also, I am obsessively (!) careful about what I download.

Does anyone have any idea why I am getting all this traffic from one place? I appreciate your time. Thanks guys.

The need to defrag my hard drive has been increasing. It's not unusual to have ten thousand fragments accumulated after eight hours of use. I'd blame the hard drive, but I had the same problem with the last hard drive, which I replaced (with another used drive) about a month ago. I did a clean install on the drive, and don't have a lot of files on it.

I'm running Windows XP, SP3. I use Diskkeeper Lite and Ultimate Defragger (for consolidation). The computer is working normally otherwise. In fact, there's no noticeable change in performance before and after defragmentation. What, other than a bum drive, can cause this?

A:Increased disk fragmentation

Some system files cannot be moved, hence it will always say that the drive is fragmented to a certain degree. Diskkeeper may even give a few false positives. If you are not manually moving files, or deleting them, adding or downloading etc, then there may be a trojan horse virus that is replicating itself enough to cause fragmentation.

Hi everybody,
I have Windows 8 installed on my laptop, and there's something I can not figure out. Whenever I leave my computer and it's in idle mode, it seems that something starts to run which causes my fan noise to increase. As soon as I move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard so that my screen is ON, my fan noise goes back to normal. Does anyone have any suggestions? There have been situations where I have left the room and when I come back after about 10 minutes, my fan noise was relatively HIGH.

Thanks

A:Increased Fan Volume when Idle

something is running in the background when idle, could be maintenance, virus scanner, backups, etc...

Since it ceases when your computer stops being idle, it may be difficult to track.

I suggest looking in your scheduled tasks and see if you find it there..

go to your start screen and start typing task options will pop up and select task scheduler

you will see what has been running in the past 24 hours first you can change that to last hour, day, etc..

Look for optimizers or scanning programs in the list..

I'm puzzled About days ago background activity CPU New increased the background CPU activity New increased background CPU activity on my system rose to a quite significant level that based on all my experience over many years I'd say is way too high and has stayed at that level - but I've been unable to link this to any new or updated program What makes this particularly difficult to get to grips with is that the main alleged culprit for this high level of background activity is a basic Windows process I use Anvir Task Manager for my monitoring and its tray icon for CPU activity shows svchost exe as being the main player - but ATM's detailed process list shows something New increased background CPU activity cryptically called 'System Idle Process' as being the primary culprit However I'm aware that the problem may well not lie in Windows because the last time I suddenly got an ongoing too-high background CPU activity i e ascribed to such basic Windows processes I resolved the problem by uninstalling Drive Sentry which I didn't care for anyway despite some great features Unfortunately I've so far not identified any new or updated program that is responsible for this change as from about days ago those that I thought might have been responsible have all now been tested by exiting or disabling them with no clear change in the background CPU activity Prior to about days ago background CPU activity simply was low enough not to be showing on the ATM tray icon but it is now typically as in the attached image - usually but not always with a bit more activity in the core that is represented on the right side of the icon Any ideas of anything further simple things I could do to sort this thing out -- Many thanks

A:New increased background CPU activity

Well firstly, System Idle Process is the CPU doing nothing. So that isn't the culprit.

Can you please Open Task Manager (CTRL-SHIFT-ESC) and click the Processes Tab. Then click "Show Processes for All Users" and click the "CPU" tag at the top, so that the highest using CPU processes are at the top. and upload a screenshot using Snipping Tool (use Start Menu Search to find it)

Hello friends, I am having problems with my operating system recently installed windows 8.1 pro, but the ram is raised without stopping .. no matter whether or not running processes, even if I have the machine without even the memory activity continues ..
I have 14GB of DDR3 1333Mhz Ram

I even doing nothing appears to have 65% of memory in use, The operating system, I have original and have already installed all windows updates.

A:RAM Increased memory use and cache

Welcome to Eight-Forums,

Check in Task Manager in process tab, go down list see if you spot anything using a lot of memory first.
Also check the Startup tab See what is starting up when PC boots and runs afterwards, if can eliminate some.
Check the Details tab see what is running amounts of RAM being used.

Is this where you are seeing it ? Happen soon as you boot to desktop ? As you say it never stops ?Must be one or few programs doing this.

Add any new programs since install of Windows 8.1 Pro ? Have a good anti-virus run a full system scan.

i have the gigabyte 8inxp motherboard and 3ghz cpu. i have not yet gotten a decent heatsink so i am using the intel one. the trouble is that the fan NEVER speeds up when the cpu heats up. my friend had the same trouble with his asus p4g8x. he had to set up his fan to be adjusted manually, which in his case sucks because his case would have to be open in order to do this. does anyone have this same trouble? is there a way to increase the speed of the fan through some internal setting (in the bios, maybe)?

Increased RAM from 256 to 1 gig or tried to. A 512 stick in first bank works fine, put the other 512 or even the old 256 stick in the second bank and I get nothing but a black screen.
Figured maybe dust or something in the second bank, but blew it out, and no change. Any ideas? or do I have a bad bank maybe?

Hi folks This problem has been driving me nuts for the last month Since a while ago I ve had frequent artifacts increased & Artifacting voltage which in of the cases cause the computer to crash Kaputt I ve tried to change voltages a little here and there and I ve noticed that when I put the SPP voltage on auto it puts itself at above stock Artifacting & increased voltage for no apparent reason If I force the voltage to the artifacts start When it s at the artifacts do not occur At least not close to as often as on I ve rather frequently been able to listen control the music in the background as well as going around in my keyboard logitech G with the screen while nothing on the screen changes This leads me to believe that the graphics card is failing The weird thing is that it can handle stress Artifacting & increased voltage tests such as furmark on maximum settings for very long periods without problem It performs very good as well I get high dmark scores for my setup All other components can handle stress tests as well Temperatures are far bellow maximum Far Note that the artifacts only occur while gaming and that this is the only way my PC crashes I do not have BSOD s just total lockdown They appear to be more seldom when I put all my fans to the max but that s not optimal when I have guests etc The temperatures are still as previously said fine compared to maximum I ve done some minor overclocking on the graphics card Temperatures have never exceeded C and while gaming I seldomly exceed C The graphics card I have is the BFG GTX OC which has increased all clocks on the board What does he want help with I d be asking myself if I were in your situation and it is as follows Are there any ways I can make a definite decision that it is in fact the GPU that s failing and not the RAM which I ve understood also runs by the SPP voltage I reckon this wasn t my best description I highly appreciate your help people I m rather experienced when it comes to computers so no need for extreme descriptions nbsp

I currently have a dell Inspiron n7010. I checked to see if I could run Diablo III, and found that I lack the Dedicated Video Ram of 256MB. My current dedicated Video Ram is 64MB. My Graphics card is Intel(r) HD Graphics. After reading several sites, it appears that this graphic card is impossible to upgrade, so I was hoping I might be bale to increase the dedicated ram so I could install Diablo III.

My apologies if this has been answered previously. I would gladly read the original thread if someone posts a link to it.


Thank you for your help!

A:Can Dedicated Video Ram be increased?

Unless there is an option in the bios to increase the amount of system ram allocated to the graphics, not much you can do.

Turned on my laptop today to find that the toolbar, icons, windows, everything have dramatically increased in size. This doesn't seem to be an issue with the resolution because when I change the resolution the display dose change but never goes back to normal. Additionally the screens brightness wont decrease, neither the Fn keys nor control panel solve either one of these problems.

Windows 7, 32bit, Toshiba, I don't know if that info is needed but if knowing specifics would help I'm more then happy to share them.

Increase display size by Ctrl + mouse wheel up, but it switches back to smaller size randomly (it seems).

I'm using Windows 7 and a Logitech wireless mouse with 27 inch monitor.

E.g., In this forum I Increased the display then entered the thread title, but when I clicked in the message area the display size decreased. Only the left mouse button was used.

I'm also using a Logitech touchpad and the Dragon Naturally Speaking software, but have the same problem with the touchpad off and DNS not running.

I'm running into more and more things that don't work any more in Windows 8 that worked perfectly in Windows 7. I'm getting a lot more Access denied messages for things like trying to backup my SeaMonkey profiles, run ERUNT, create folders or files under the \Windows folder structure.

Is there any way to turn off this "enhanced" security or set it to the Windows 7 level? It's driving me nuts and may be the final straw that moves me back to Windows 7.

Taking ownership has no effect.
Granting myself Full Access has no effect.

A:Increased security a definite PITA!

I'm kind of wondering this myself...

But I tried creating folders within the Windows folder with no problem. Sometimes if I don't have access to something, I just use the Take Ownership (I have a .reg entry in the context menu for that) and I will get access to those items no problem. Seems odd that you have those issues.

Hello. I recently built a desktop with a Crucial M4 64GB SSD as the boot drive and installed Crucial Ballistix sport 16GB (4 x 4GB) on an Intel DP67DE motherboard.
1 of my memory modules went bad so I removed a pair to return to Crucial for exchange. During that time I ran the remaining 2 memory modules and was therefore at 8GB of RAM. Also during that time I noticed the free space on my SSD was ~25.6GB.
Today I reinstalled the remaining pair of Ballistix bringing the memory back up to 16GB. After that I noticed my SSD free space dropped to ~11.2GB.
Everything is running OK and I use a 1.5TB HDD for storage but I am puzzled as to the loss of 14.4GB of SSD space after increasing the memory.

A:Increased RAM, decreased SSD free space

Hi,

I have configured an XP system for sharing purpose. This system will be accessed by many users simultaneously, due to this sometimes when the number of users increase in accessing this sharing system some of the users were not able to connect to the system as the number of users got increased in accessing system.

So is there any option such that can we increase the number of users accessing list. Let us consider one case i.e. if a system has a limit of 10 users accessing it, can we increase the number of users that is more than 10 to access the system simultaneuously.

Thank you for your valuable time.

Awaiting for the reply.
 

A:No. of users to access the system can be increased?

Windows XP PRO is limited to 10 connections to get more you need to move up to Windows 2003 or Windows 2008 Server.

There is no Start/Programs, no Start/Control Panel, etc.

For example, to get to Windows Update I have to revert to the Metro desktop

Is there a configuration option I have missed?

You could right click on the Start button for the Power User Tasks menu for more options.

You could also customize the Power User Tasks menu.

I installed a 250 gb seagate HD (slave), for use as storage (partitioned as below) - The first, partition is a scratch disk for Photoshop & Illustrator, the second and third are for storage.

But now XP Pro takes much longer to boot than before; just the blinking cursor for about 60 seconds or so.
Anyone have any ideas on why and if it's avoidable?

I read a post about the boot.ini file, but have no idea how it might be edited - I tried reducing the, 'Time to display list of operating systems:' option in 'Startup and Recovery - System Properties' to 5 seconds - with no effect.

specs: XP pro SP2, 1gb ddrRam, 2.8ghz P4, 1x120 gb & 1x250 gb HD.

Thanks!
 

A:2nd HD added, boot time increased

Nothing should have changed in the boot.ini file to increase boot time by just adding a second hard drive. Having it set to 5 seconds with no change more or less proves that for yourself.

Another easy test would be, when the computer is turned off, unplug the new drive and see if the boot time goes back to the way it was.

I had BSOD issues in Windows 8.1 that I am not confident completely resolved, but they did improve greatly. I suspected that a windows update may have addressed the issue that was causing frequent (daily) BSODs. However when I upgraded to Windows 10, the BSODs returned with multiple per day and no discernable pattern other than heavier computer use tends to increase the likelihood. The computer often crashes upon boot though as well. I've seen many different messages associated with the BSODs.

My zip file is attached as requested. Thank you.



I did run SFC and DISM with no issues identified.

A:BSOD greatly increased since Windows 10 upgrade

Please remove / disable items from the startup in taskmanager
These programs could interfere with the boot process giving you trouble and increase the boot time.

I suggest to run Hardware Diagnostics, starting with the bootable onces.
For the memory test, run MemTest86+ for at least 8 complete passes straight

This is something I see a lot, and there are some 0x1A(MEMORY_MANAGEMENT) with the video memory as possible cause.

I am suffering from an increase in the blue screen appearance but can’t seem to pin it down to any one thing – after several reports from Microsoft suggesting I volunteer to join their research team if I live in Seattle (very annoying) it has started to refer me every time to a recent update that was already installed on this computer at the beginning of the month.
I have supplied the minidump files from the last four crashes which I hope can guide you at least to the general area:

1.3% to 1.9% using a 1.5% goal

Which one has the greatest increase in percentage?

I find that removing the side panel of the case allows my CPU to run cooler by 5'C. From 52'C Idle down to 47'C.

Is it possible that extra cooling or better fans than existing will keep it that low with side panel attached? :blush:
 

A:Summer Weather = Increased Ambient Temps

Yes.

Better room cooling will also keep those temps down. I ran an extra duct from my central AC unit to the room. This room is now as cool as the rest of the house and my temps are pretty consistant.

Hello,

I recently did a factory reset on my laptop. The problem I have is that the screen turns off after being idle, and the CPU usage increases dramatically afterwards, causing my laptop to overheat while I am away. When I turn the screen back on, my taskbar and "window color" appear white for a few seconds.

I changed the settings in Power Management to "never" and made sure my screen saver was set to "none," but the problem still persists.

Here is a screenshot of my settings:



Am I missing something obvious or do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

This behavior is not normal. Did you ever make a few virus scans - e.g. with Malwarebytes and your AV program.

According to our ISP our internet downloads have increased greatly over the past 6 weeks. We are running Trend Micro Internet Security 2007 (updated daily) which has not detected anything unusual. Regular TM virus/spyware scans are clean. If we turn of the modem then the reported downloads stop, so the ISP download reports are probably correct. The reported daily downloads are usually about 500mb and last for about 12 hours.

Hello all. New Vista user and I note that when I first boot up, memory consumption is about 16% (I have 8 GB installed). After running awhile the memory use gradually increases to around 28% even though no programs are open and in use. Hard to believe I could have more than two GB in use all the time, even when not actively using any programs and obviously, I'd be in trouble if all I had installed was two GB to start with. Is this normal and if not, how do I begin troubleshooting. Many thanks for any assistance offerred.

A:Gradually increased memory consumption in Vista

If your system runs fine then why bother messing with? RAM is meant to be used. I know we would like to see less RAM used. My computer does the same thing as it starts around 1 gb then quickly goes up to use around 1.4 gb's.

You could use this guide to take away unneeded system processes. Its Black Viper's website and it very useful for running a computer with less resources needed.

If you increase the multiplier on an unlocked cpu (intel extreme edition/amd black edition) will that cpu consume more power? Will it produce more heat?
 

A:Solved: Cpu Multiplier = Increased Power Consumtion?

Well, yes. If the clock speed is increased as a result of changing the multiplier, then the CPU will require more power, and therefore generate more heat.

Unfortunately, there is only one solution. You must get a new email address. In addition, go to Yahoo, or something similar and open a junk mail account. If you ever have to put your addy online, to register, or get something free, give the junk mail account. Give your real account only to those that you really know and to major companines, in order to get bills, buy airline tickets etc. That is what I have done several years ago and no spam problems. But, every day in my junk mail there are at least a dozen spam emails.

Hi guys I own a bought custom built desktop had it for quite a few months now and in recent weeks its slowly started to get more frequent BSOD's though it's never been the most stable pc anyway Here's a rough date timeline with each BSOD BCCode - a - a - a - a - a - a - - a - a - a on increased until BSOD stuck endless loop... attached along with recent quot c quot crash text I looked for solutions a lot of times but they vary so much I did a disk check twice all came out clean apparently and today I followed a tutorial to use the quot verifier quot to check all drivers But that's where things got worse once my pc BSOD increased until stuck on endless loop... restarted and I log in it crashes almost immediately every single time within - seconds and always with a BCCode that I never seen before c I am currently stuck on safe mode to even write this doesn't crash on safe mode but normal it always crashes So I'm stuck with a crippled pc and dont know why its stuck in this crash loop BSOD increased until stuck on endless loop... I attached a couple recent crash text files couple photos of the looping blue screen and the diagnostic zip file

A:BSOD increased until stuck on endless loop...

The C9 errors are Verifier doing its work. It's catching bad drivers and bug checking the system. You'll need to turn that off for the BSOD loop to go away. To turn it off, just open Verifier and select "Delete existing settings" from the menu.

Verifier is crashing because a dispatched IRP is not being serviced correctly.

Your other errors are all caused by page faults or trying to free pool that doesn't exist or doesn't have a correct page table entry. These types of transactions are heavily related to memory, so I would suggest running Memtest86+ overnight. You can google and find the download for it pretty easily.

Let us know what happens after you run MemTest.

I dont even use 2003 at all i was jst to play around with it and i was planning to delete it. if you look at partition S you will see that its over 2000GB. wich is impossible since i only have about 500GB on this PC. is my hard drive failing? what is wrong

I'm having similar problems. Since June our usage has increased absolutely hugely, for no apparent reason. Last night we used half a gyg, just sending a few emails. We had a phone line fault at the end of June, which lasted for 5 days, and since then our usage has been absolutely huge, and I don't understand why. We have a 5 gyb a month contract, which has always been ample until now, and all we do is surf and email. And yet in July we used 7.35 gyg, even though we were away for 2 weeks, and my DH was in hospital for the last week of the month. In August we used a massive 13.35 gyg, and in September we have used over 9 gybs. Could this be anything to do with the phone line fault? Is it possible that BT =have done something?
 

A:broadband data usage increased recently

i have moved your post to a thread of its own - less confusion when answering

I would talk to BT and explain the situation

how many devices do you have on the connection ?

i would install bitmeterII on all the PCs to monitor usage

http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,67181-order,1-page,1/description.html
this will measure the usage at each PC - not the network - just the pc its installed on - so you need to add to all pcs to see the usage - assuming your not using an xbox or ps3 connected to the interent for movies etc

but it sounds like a fault with the BT usage if you have been away for 2 weeks and this is not your normal usage

Hi

My laptop reboot time has increased to a significant amount (about 15-20 secs, earlier it was < 5 secs) after I updated to Windows 8.1.

I am talking about the time it takes to lock screen to appear after I power on the laptop not the time from logging in to desktop visibility. Still I have reduced the number of start-up programs, and its of no use.

How can I reduce this time?

Regards
MH

A:PC reboot time increased after Windows 8.1 update

After installing the upgrade, the waiting time at the boot menu reverts to 30 seconds. You can change this back to, say, 3 seconds through the Msconfig - Boot tab.

Looking at the sureview idea, it sounds nice but a determined person could still get some info from the pc, right? Take out your phone, put in manual mode, raise the exposure levels and the low light becomes average light and then you take the photo

A:HP Sure view - what if someone captured a photo and increased the brightness or exposure?

possibly, but even then, what would the quality be? take it from a distance and even after zooming and lightening the image, how readable will it be? if you want to "sneak" a picture of someone's screen, you will make it freaking obvious....

A:Solved: Virtual PC won't recognize newly increased physical RAM.

Virtual PC cannot use any more than 4 GB of RAM, this is because VPC only supports 32 bit guests. If you need to use more ram, then you need to switch to a 64 bit virtual environment such as Hyper-V.

Hi everyone,

I'm having a very odd situation here and was hoping someone can explain.

I just installed Vista SP 1 on my machine. I have 2 internal hard drives, each 160 GB. The C drive had about 42 GB free before install. Installation just finished and I now have 59 GB free on that drive! I did a quick check and can't find any files or software missing at first glance, and nothing has changed with the second HD. Does anyone have any idea whether this is normal? Has it happened before? I could see gaining a few MB but 17 GB seems almost impossible. Didn't run Disc Cleanup or Defrag or anything either.

Hello,

The font size in "right click" drop down menus/drive directories/text on desktop has all increased in size. I did not do this intentionally (or at all). How do I decrease the font size in these areas?

Thank you!

]Changed my CMOS battery and now my usable memory has decreased by 512MB and shared memory has increased by 512MB. All the BIOS setting haven't changed. Did a search of this site and tried suggested BIOS changes (decrease video memory) and still no luck. How do I get my usable memory back?

This use to say 3.5 usable.

A:Shared Memory Increased after CMOS Battery Change

Have a good look through the bios for a setting called "Memory hole remapping" or something similar and if it is disabled, enable it.

Changing the battery can and usually will cause the bios to reset, and that is one setting that depending on the motherboard in most cases is set to disabled and needs to be enabled to use/see more than 4 GB of ram in 64 bit.

Asus q5501l, installed a 120gig sad as the main operating system. I tried to download Windows 10 and kept on getting a USB error message so I researched it and found something about increasing the partitions incentives ssds tend to small partitions or something of thst nature, so I did that and now it won't boot.

I want to reinstall my old hard drive and install Windows 10 but if I wanted to try to restore my ssd on the main partition how do indo that?

A:Increased partition size, computer doesn't boot.

You would remove the old hard drive, install the SSD, and then use your install media to install Windows onto the SSD.
