Preferred Solution: Solved: Twain Tracker window? And many more glitches! I'm so confused!

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.)

A: Solved: Twain Tracker window? And many more glitches! I'm so confused!

My suggestion is be firm with the tech support company. Tell them the problem and tell them that you have already done what they have suggested and that it has not worked. If they insist that is the problem then tell whoever you have on the phone you would like to speak to there supervisor. Be firm and always use little words, they don't understand them big ones!!

A:Confused about which GPU to buy

The decision is up to you. Obviously the best value is the 290, if you want to pay twice as much money you can still get higher performance, but maybe only about 30% better.

Neither my keyboard or mouse are working on any of the 7 USB ports on my computer. My mouse was initially working, but I read somewhere if you delete the keyboard drivers you can reinstall them and it will work again. BUT when I was doing that I stupidly uninstalled my mouse driver so now NOTHING works. I can't try if it works in safe mode because my keyboard doesn't respond when I hit f12 during boot up.

When I plug in the mouse or keyboard, I get a window that pops up asking if I want to install the hardware, but it's impossible for me to do anything because my mouse and keyboard don't work! If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks!

A:My Dell Demension e510's (Window's XP) keyboard and mouse don't work

First I would try to find a different working keyboard because you should at less be able to boot into safe mode because the drivers don't even load until windows start loading.

I recently just built a gaming PC with my friend I have installed all of the drivers for the GPU from the installation disk it came displays dark. Build. glitches goes then New problem? Monitor GPU with Windows has been updated fully also besides three updates that continue to fail They are just security updates they may or may not be the problem The PC runs fine and the display will show New Build. Monitor displays glitches then goes dark. GPU problem? clear and crisp for about half an hour until New Build. Monitor displays glitches then goes dark. GPU problem? glitches will start to appear in the screen and next the monitor will appear black The light is still on and the PC is still running whatever it was last I know this because it did it during a driver installation and after I waited an hour and then restarted the PC the driver install was done Often after I restart the PC nothing will show up at all If I wait awhile and get lucky it will boot up normal The glitches happen most often when I try to run a game The mentioned updates continue to fail and idk why I have ran a troubleshoot for the PC as well and the it says no driver can be found for the PCI Simple Communications Controller After I choose to search for the driver online or on my computer it says no driver found During a Windows Update failure I got another error message concerning my graphics driver saying a problem could ve occurred because a graphics driver is missing Yet the program GPU Tweak that was installed with the disk says that everything s up-to-date When I try to update manually it says the sam thing This computer was not expensive I can post exact specs when I can get back into it and maybe some pics Specs Not listed is a terabyte of memory blu-ray burner and and an msi Z -G Gaming motherboard I have a strong internet connection and am using a DVI port for the monitor I have ruled out the monitor as the problem Before I said the PC was NOT expensive I meant NOT cheap I spent around on the parts nbsp

A:New Build. Monitor displays glitches then goes dark. GPU problem?

Looking at the screen shot of GPU-Z it appears you are running a AMD Catalyst 13.8 BETA drivers. I would suggest downloading the latest drivers from AMD: AMD Catalyst Omega Drivers 14.12. Then go into your control panel and completely uninstall the amd catalyst from your computer. Once completed, you may need to reboot the computer. After reboot, install the newest drivers from the link I posted above. Do so and then try again to produce same error results. Let us know if it works or not so we can try other options, or resolve the issue.

Hello there I finally have all the parts for my brand new PC today I decided to start putting it together but ran into a problem before getting too far into with Confused I/O my shield Gigabyte it Basically I installed the I O shield but it seems to have certain quot holes quot blocked off completely by a thin metal flap It seems to Confused with my Gigabyte I/O shield be removable but because these parts are all literally brand new I thought I would post-pone my build til tomorrow and get a second opinion on this - just to be extra safe and make sure I do this correctly Also on the back-side where the hole for the ethernet is there is a flimsy metal strip protruding downwards into the case It seems like it would possibly collide with the port or go into it Here are some pics to quot show quot you why I m confused my whole build is on hold until I figure out what to do here http I imgur com Bkc O O jpg http I imgur com gSWVkWq jpg http I imgur com fgDEwwe jpg Motherboard in question is http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E amp ignorebbr Case in question is quot Cooler Master Elite quot http www newegg com Product Product aspx Item N E I m eager to finish my build by this weekend for some gaming - Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Confused with my Gigabyte I/O shield

Occasionally you have to make adjustments the I/O shield when you install it. It has happened to me before but it's not a big deal. You will have to remove the round port holes in order to allow the antenna ports to poke through. For whatever reason they neglected to do so at the factory but for your model motherboard you will have to punch them out. As for the other "tab" thing the metal is springy so you can either bend or pull the tab up slightly to clear the USB port or, when installing the motherboard at a slight angle, you can slide USB port in from underneath the tab and then up and push it home toward the back. I hope that wasn't too confusing.

A few days ago my laptop started doing something weird - I would watch a video on YouTube or browsing the internet when my screen would glitch out and then I am not able to do anything. Most of the times the laptop will keep on running but the screen is frozen. Yesterday I even got blue screen after that happening.

Those are the specifications. I am using Windows 7 Proffesional. My GPU is Nvidia Geforce 525M 2GB + The the graphics card that comes with the processor

Here again since I have the most weird problem ever which I have never seen nor heard of before. I recently upgraded the OS on a friends computer, from Vista to 7. However now I can't seem to get the onboard ethernet adapter to work, it can't be seen in device manager nor anywhere else. I have tried to reset the bios (by removing the cmos battery) and I have also checked that the network adapter is set to 'Enabled'. Also, when I connect the cable to the ethernet port no lights go on, it doesn't give any sort of hope what so ever. The cable is ok, the "modem" is ok, and everything else seems to be in order and yet it doesn't work.

Computer in question:
HP Pavilion 6530sc
Non-default GPU and added 1Gb RAM

A:Solved: Computer doesn't recognize the network adapter

Whenever you install a new OS, always take note of the model of core system hardware like GPU, chipset, and ethernet/wifi (there are a few others that aren't as important, but nice to have updated) since those are critical to your computers core functionality.

However, a quick google search of your model yielded me with your PC's system specs. Your PC contains a Realtek RTL8201N ethernet adapter. So far I am unable to find a driver from Realtek itself and the HP driver is not Realtek, but instead nVidia nForce.

So after a bit of searching, I came across this: it seems to me that you have an old chipset from nVidia. I am not completely sure, but I think you have an ION chipset. Try installing this ION chipset driver (64 bit) ==OR== this ION chipset driver (32 bit) and tell me if it works. It should include the necessary component drivers and if it works, it means you have an ION chipset like I suspected.

Here are the specifications for your PC BTW.

A:Confused about fan/cooling on my PC

Well, it depends on what fan is spinning up honestly. Since I'm assuming there is no fan controller, it's probably a bios setting that's changed for whatever reason or something to that extent.

I would check the bios fan settings and see what they are all set to.

A:Cooler Master 431 w/o Side window Cooling

That is a good cooler, but I personally like at your budget range the Thermaltake CLP0575 Frio

But either will do you fine for 4.0ghz on a 3570k

As for more airflow, adding more fans can help, but make sure to just focus on having a good overall flow through the case which will be a huge benefit in general.

It seems as though that every wireless connection that I come across has this problem lately. Every single one. I am confused, is it just me?

A:Graphics card issue (not solved by any other threads)

I suggest a clean reinstall of the OS and drivers from scratch. Clean out your PC, re-seat all the components and continue with a fresh install of OS, drivers, etc.

If that doesn't work, then it's an issue with your card or the PCI-E slot on the motherboard.

I have Dell inspiron 535s it was running well at 800mhz with 2gb of ram(1
+1) .when I installed 4gb ddr2 800 mhz (2+2)it ran at 667 mhz and window showed 3.25gb usable Ram.There is no way I can correct it from BIOS as I didn't find any option of memory remapping or overclocking it.Is there any way I could raise the speed of my Ram and also Raise it to 4gb usable???By the way I am running win7 ultimate.

A:Window detects 3.25GB RAM when I installed 4GB

First, your system only showing usable memory at 3.25GB is perfectly correct. You cannot do anything about that unless you use 64bit windows.

I suspect that the new memory you have fitted has a higher voltage rating and is therefore running at a lower clock speed. Check the voltage rating on the manufacturer's site and then make the adjustment in the Bios.

A:Rather confused - My GTX 460 1GB is worse than GTX 280?

I'd be surprised if LFD2 didn't have a config file somewhere with MaxFPS = 60 or similar. Worth checking out. Other than that I thought the 4XX fermi series cards were basically cooler, less power hungry versions of the 2XX fermi ones. Wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't that much different in performance.

In fact Tomshardware gpu chart for LFD2 shows the 1GB 460 only about 5 fps faster than the 1GB 280, although I think the source engine stuff does use CPU a lot so that might be a more limiting factor than the card. Looking at BF2 it looks like it's within 5 fps difference too. I think you've sidegraded to a quieter, cooler card with not much different performance

Although you do now have a DX11 card. Buy another 460 and SLI them (or return the card).

Should have posted here first before buying it

Hey guys,

Just got myself an Asus N71J for Xmas, was running fine until this morning. Running windows 7 64bit, anyways I was able to play games and surf on Aero fine (Left 4 Dead 2, Eve, CoD), then this morning it starts to bug up. Little coloured squares appear everywhere under aero, they're absent if I turn off aero. If I try to play any form of game the display driver fails (windows recorgnizes it) and I have to turn the game off. I've removed all the display drivers and put up to date ones, done the same with Directx to no avail. Short of formatting there's not much left for me to do on the software end, but I really dont think that's the issue. I'm pretty sure the Radion HD5730 is dying on me but would like to see what you guys think. Cheers!

Go to the Asus support website and download the video driver for your model laptop. Windows Update might find hardware updates automatically. Just because the laptop is new, this doesn't mean it has the latest updates installed. If you have no luck with this, return the laptop or have it serviced under warranty

Short version - I used DG45ID (solved) motherboard Intel dead a non compatible cpu which has the effect of leaving Intel DG45ID motherboard dead (solved) the board switched on Long version - I bought the DG ID off ebay and got a CPU to go in it I switched on the fan worked and HDD was active but no screen The USBs were active When I switched off at the mains When I switched on it powered up without the start button I realised I had a non compatible cpu I bought an E The first time I switched on at the mains it came on without the start button but subsequently I had to press start to power the board ie as normal CMOS jumper When I bought it the jumper connected pin with the LED pin I assume that is like a removed jumper ie BIOS flash mode Hence Intel DG45ID motherboard dead (solved) when I connected a DVD drive it Intel DG45ID motherboard dead (solved) crashed I assume it was looking for a bio file Nothing I could do would recover the board The green standby light came on but nothing else It was dead No USB power no fans nothing I remembered the wrong CPU that had left the board quot switched on quot I put it in and it behaved as before power but no monitor I then replaced the E and hey presto I was in but only on cmos recovery there was no bios But the USBs were active So I removed the jumper flashed the BIOS from a USB stick and it s up and running NB the intel manual is wrong regarding the CMOS pins It shows pin closest to the battery That is actually pin If you look I can t post the pdf link page the pin is clearly show closest to the battery I thought it was strange that all the images on Google show the jumper on pins furthest from the battery the manual says that is the recovery position nbsp

Hello all I I dive newbie bit the take Overclocking should if confused a am new to the forums and have a question Right now I seem to be at an impasse I have never overclocked before but ever Overclocking newbie a bit confused if I should take the dive since hearing about it have wanted to try it But before I do I have several quick questions Right now I am runing a Dell mobo so I would need to buy a new one in order to OC from the bios I already have one picked out but I also do want to get myself a Razar Naga mouse and I can only get one or the other at the moment so I want to make sure I make an informed choice The CPU I am currently running is a Wolfdale E ghz which is its stock speed I upgraded from the stock dell processor that came with my Inspirion s and noticed a big difference But what I am wondering is how big a difference overclocking will actually make Right now I mainly play WoW and from what I understand it is more Overclocking newbie a bit confused if I should take the dive CPU intensive then GPU so I figured that a slight overclock would be pretty beneficial with the new expansion coming and upgrades visually to certain parts of the game I want to run it was smoothly as possible on my budget I do say a slight overclock because I have never done so before and dont want to get out of hand From what I understand the CPU I have is a great overclocker but I dont know if my expectations are too high since my knowledge of overclocking is trivial So to summarize do you think that overclocking may be beneficial in my position and if so how much might I need to overclock to see any real gains in a game like WoW that relies more in the CPU Or should I probably not worry about it since I have an alright cpu and dont play anything too modern like Crysis and instead spend my money on that Razar I have my eyes on Thanks in advance for any answers nbsp

A:Overclocking newbie a bit confused if I should take the dive

i wouldn't bother, that processor is plenty capable for what you need it for... so why risk it?

overclocking is, by all means, not a difficult procedure but if you're new i would advise you to do some searching for a similar configuration and see what each setting does. there are quite a few message boards besides TS that specialize in OC configurations and support. please keep in mind that your cooling system plays one of the biggest (if not the biggest) roles in overclocking, so read up on different cooling options as well if you plan on giving it a try.

I received an email from PowerColor on their 5-mini-displayport card that stated that if I wanted to drive 2560x1600 monitors, I could only do a max of 3 because I would use up all the displayport "channels". I thought the card would drive 5 monitors at 2560x1600.

Can someone explain to me how to calculate maximum "channels" or whatever the tech meant when he said that?

Thanks for any help.

Hi.. I'm a normal gamer and i need to know about the total gaming and video performance and benchmarks for Nvidia Geforce 9400GT(1GB DDR2) and 9500GT(512MB DDR3)/(1GB DDR2/V2)/(1GB DDR2).

The brands available in my area are ASUS/ZOTAC/Pallit/Galaxy. The most available are ASUS and ZOTAC.

Please give me the perfect details and the models.

And i need the similar graphic cards on ATI also. My estimate is around $64 to $74.

Motherbord: ASUS Crosshair III Formula
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 (3.0GHz)

A:I'm confused, GeForce 9400GT or 9500GT?

Here's Nvidia's comparison page: Relatively speaking, neither one of them is any good. The 9400GT card is only half as fast as the 9500GT, which by my math, makes it twice as "not any good" as the 9500GT. So, I would strike the 9400 from my "things to buy" list altogether.

If you're anywhere near serious about gaming, I would say that a GT 240 card would be entry level. That would be better than the 9600GT chipset, which Nvidia no longer shows in their comparisons.

I'm not as familiar with the current ATI card line up, maybe one of their fanbois can point you to an equivalent card.

A:Dos boot my computer out a window

Be sure you are booting to the CD, almost any CD with an operating system on it, or a format program.

Once you reach that CD, you should find you can remove the partition or format the partition, unless your optical drive has gone bad.

Or go on line and search for one of the free partition managers to remove the partition,

Then use your operating system Cd to create a new partition, then format the partition.

1. CPU-Z hows more core speed at 1446.0 Mhz, multiplier x 9.0, with a bus speed of 160.7 Mhz. I have my system OC in BIOS to 3.3 Ghz. I also have Intel's speed step and turbo boost enabled. Is there any way to calculate or make CPU-Z show my OC?Click to expand...

Put your CPU on load.

2. Under the memory tab in CPU-Z is lists the Channels as "Single." But I have dual-channel capability with my mobo, and I swear I have the two memory sticks in exactly where the instructions say to place them. Is it possible CPU-Z simply isn't correctly identifying dual channel? Should I try the other 2 slots instead of the 2 I'm using now?Click to expand...

I forgot why but I think thats normal.

3. DRAM frequency: In BIOS, when I OC to 3.3 Ghz, I get 3 choices for DRAM settings, one of which is 1600 Mhz, and that's what I've been using. But when I look at OC guides/instructions, they opt to choose a lower Mhz, like 1333 or something like that. Should I be using a lower Mhz too?Click to expand...

A:Cursor corruption and glitches with Ati Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb

I don't think your old card meets the minimum requirements of the game. Further, since ATI has stopped supporting that card with drivers, you will mess up your graphics if you try to use the most current ones. Use Catalyst version 9.3 or older. That card was top of the line in its day but time has passed it by.

I've searched the forum and read the Graphic card sticky by cfitzarl , but all I find is conflicting info.
I want to install the new driver for my HD 4850
Some posts say to uninstall via add/remove in control panel.
Others say to boot into safe mode and remove the driver via device manager.
My confusion also stems from the fact that all I see in control panel is Catalyst Install Manager --not Catalyst Control Center.
The recommended download on Techspot leads to a page which contains a Catalyst Suite.
Before I mess up my computer, by failing to uninstall the necessary things, I'm hoping will reply.
Should I do the following:
1) Download the new Catalyst Suite
2)Uninstall Catalyst Install Manager
3) Uninstall the video card driver in device manager--and do I have to boot into safe mode in order to do so
4) Install the new Catalyst Suite

A:Now I'm confused

All you need to do is remove the ATI Display Driver from the Add/Remove programs and Catalyst Install Manager should run. Now it's just a matter of selecting which components to remove from your system. You shouldn't have to remove Catalyst Install Manager but I would update to the latest version of CCC (Catalyst Control Center) when you remove the existing display drivers. You don't need to do anything in safe mode.

Hello, Im planning to buy a new VGA to my computer. Currently I have INNO3d 8500GT 512mb. Im an avid fan of Red Alert 3 and somehow I wanted to play it on ultra high settings, with my current VGA i can only play it on medium settings.

im planning to buy a 9500gt 1gb. Do you think it can handle the ultra high settings for RA3? and what is the difference when I use 9500gt 512mb?

obviously 9500gt 512mb is more cheaper than 9500gt 1gb. does the 512mb and 1gb counts? or should i go for 9500gt 512mb since it can handle the graphics just as i wanted it?

am really not good at this, hope you can give suggestions to me..

The extra ram is for a high resolution settings. That is if you actually have a monitor that's 22" or higher. It does help with the extra bells and whistles graphics wise.

I take it that the extra 256Meg of Ram did not originally come from HP
I'm not sure if that's relevant or not, but even same rating Ram (but different manufacture) has been known to cause issues (ie best to use exactly the same Ram cards always)

I was discussing a similar matter earlier on here: Windows will not boot with more than 2gb of ram (although the emphasis in that thread was the 2Gig max, before installing Windows, and strangeness of having increased ram in a system)

Either way, thanks for your post, it was interesting to note this issue (and likely cause)
Many times during a Setup fault, I have advised members to remove extra Ram cards and try again. It may be that the originally recorded Ram (under re-imaging) may be the answer (on some computers that may have Setup problems) Sadly you would need to test this issue on 10 similar, same spec, computers to really confirm. Or contact HP technical support, or possibly their tech forum, to ask of others experiences.

Hello everyone. I just bought an XFX 9800GT & to my dismay, it didn't run smoothly as i thought it would be. Games, websites ctd. All because of my low wattage psu. It didn't occur to me to change the psu when using the latest gfx cards because it came with a 6 pin to dual molex connector, so i thought it would be okay. I've done some research on looking for psu's & found to look for the amps as well. Now i don't know just how much i amps i need. I've selected 3 options from my local store, a Coolermaster Real Power Pro 550w with 25amps & two unknown brands which i`ve never heard before both at 500w with one at 27amps & the other at 30amps. All which fits under my budget of 100 bucks. Please advise. Thanks.

A:Dazed & Confused.. of which PSU

What are the other two brands?

And PSUs do not affect performance in any way other than causing crashes or BSODs. So try using the latest drivers and checking if the poor performance is not due to any other component.

Of late I found my desktop PC crashing now and then. The situation was getting worse by the day and it was becoming frustrating to use the PC.

I opened the box and got my fingers dirty, so before I looked further I decided to blow out all the dust with a vacuum cleaner. Loads of dust billowed out. I would recommend holding the CPU fan blades so that it does not spin uncontrollably.

After the dust clean up, the PC is working great and no unwanted crashes. I guess the dust was preventing the cooling of the CPU.

Hi there,
Can anyone help me? I'm quite desperate here.
I'm having problem with my keyboard/USB.
When I press any key on the keyboard, that instant all USB devices are disconnected. And soon after I unpress it, the system will detect all USB devices like they were just plugged in. I say all USB devices, cause it doesn't matter USB mouse or USB drive, they all get disconnected.
It's frustrating me cause I can't use a USB mouse.
Please help

I'm using a Lenovo 3000 N100 0689GRA.

How many USB ports does that have? and what are connecting them. If you could also please look in your event viewer (Start>control panel>administrative tools>eventviewer, and check the "SYSTEM" area. double click any item in that list for a detailed description. You should see some errors.

Hey I am confused by the terminologies Dual Core and Core 2 Duo, can someone please tell me something (not so technical) about the two CPUs? Some sales person in a PC shop told me that Core 2 Duo has chips? cores while a dual core has 2 chips? Is this informations right? Someone please reply as I am planning to upgrade from my ancient Pentium 4 machine to a new one and would like to get as much bang for my cash. Thanks.

A:Confused - Dual Core and Core 2 Duo

From what I can make out they are both the same. Intel set out to confuse everyone by the Core 2 Duo thing while AMD just called it dual core. I have 2 computers. One running Core2Duo and the other an AMD dual core. A diagnostics program refers to each as having 2 CPU's

Hey guys, i'm new here and must say i'm impressed with the community. Very helpful!

I am hoping to install an 8800 GT, and I am quite sure my PSU is adequate, but i would like to make sure. Here are the PSU specs:

450 WATT

+5V // -5V // +12V // -12V // +3.3V // +5VSB
36A // 0.3A // 18A // 0.8A // 31A //// 2.0A

Now i have read places that some people run the card slightly underpowered... They say it doesn't affect anything, but i would rather have the minimum or better, nothing less.

Is this PSU powerful enough?

So i bought my new 2 sea gate drives,and as before like i said the previous hds was randomly getting dced etc,now when i bought the new drives worked great then started to do the same thing as the previous drives,not being picked up in bios etc,then i decided to change the plug in my ultra x3 800 watt psu to a molex to sata connection,that worked picking up the hds no problem,

so does it sound like a wire issue or the psu giving the issue?cause as soon as i switched it to the molex to sata instead of the other sata connect in the utra x3 which uses different wires and different ports it worked.

a waste of 184 but i got better hds and i can just sell the 2 500 gig wd drives i got

A:SATA problem solved but a bit concerned

Ok yes it does seem like a faulty Power Supply

Also you should have just replied to your original thread:
Instead of making this new one.

But oh well !

Anyway, if the molex do not cause any issue, then you could continue with them
I wish you had tried that before. I didn't suggest it, because it is uncommon (very uncommon), especially with two !

Most laptops have a SVGA (video) output to connect to a projector for presentations, or to a monitor (so you dont have to stare at the laptop screen when at home). Typically to disable, you should be able to go into the display settings (where you see the two monitors), click on the secondary monitor, and select disable. Otherwise, you must click advanced, and locate the option to disable the secondary output (typically a check box).

You should be able to contact your system manufacturer for specific information and steps. Otherwise, please provide the model number of the laptop.

A:1 long 2 short... im so confused

Yes I read that one too, when you posted it.

I was thinking that a temporary fix (we'll get to long term later) may be to remove the power cord, then hold in the power On switch for 30 secs, then re-insert the power cord, and turn on.

But, even if it works, it's temporary.

I wonder if you have tried updating your BIOS:
Not sure which PCB revision you have.

I wonder if you have tried removing the motherboard.
Now there's a really good reason for this (not just the obvious stuff that most know) but the board may be held in (securely) on a slight angle or bow (not bows and arrows; angles and bows!!)
This may also be the case for the CPU as well, the amount of pressure the Heatsink is attached to the board, can cause the motherboard to basically bend.
Which can then cause an intermittent video fault (on the PCI bus)

Well, there's my 2cents; try bench test

Could it be that your display resolutions are wrong?

i doubt it has anything to do with your epson software, since it happens with others..

The normal resolution you should keep your monitors at is to the highest supported by both monitor and graphics card. DPI however, can be altered, found under the advanced properties (display properties>Settings>Advanced..) of your graphics card. Try altering that to the Normal setting and see if it makes a difference..

have you also tried getting the latest software updates available for your graphics card and others you have problem with?

The laptops hard drive is probably bad. You will need to have a new drive installed and the OS (operating system) reloaded. Can you do this, or will you need to take the laptop to a repair shop? After the laptop is up and running again, there may be a way to retrive you data on the old drive, by placing the drive in an external USB laptop hard drive enclosure. Backing up those important financial files might be a good idea from now on. Can you recover them from your financial institution?

A:Help Needed: RAM OCing - Confused and CPU OCing - Problem

To slightly overclock your ram you'll need to set the dram timings to auto for now. As you speed up your FSB, your BIOS should automatically increase the memory timings to ensure stability. Set the dram frequency to 533 and then slowly increase the front side bus. After you have the FSB set you can then set the dram timings to manual and tighten your memory timings one at a time and then test for stability.

As far as your hard drive is concerned, it sounds like when you increased the FSB frequency your South Bridge frequency also increased. South Bridge devices (like your hard drive controller card) don't usually respond well to an increase in speed, so the card scrambled your hard drive. There should be a South Bridge lock in your BIOS. Your South Bridge should remain at 100MHz if it's a PCI-E based SB or 33MHz if it's a PCI based SB.

Now I may be completely wrong about your hard drive problem. Your processor could have over heated and caused the same thing; your memory could have spazzed and caused the same thing.

Honestly there are far to many variables to be able to help you at your current level of knowledge, and I don't know much if anything about overclocking DDR2. You need to read as much as you can about overclocking. Then start slowly and overclock you processor. Pull back and overclock your memory. Find out what will be your limiting factor (either your processor, memory or motherboard) and set up your BIOS to run as fast as possible with stability.

Im confused about what causes frame overlap(when you start to see clear lines in textures because your graphics card puts out more frames than refresh rate limit on your monitor). I've been getting this wierd graphical problem and have tried things like v-sync, but i just cant seem to get rid of all these extra textures. Whats even more wierd is the fact that my framerate rarely exceeds my monitor's refresh rate, so i am not suppossed to be seeing these clear lines.

Hi whenever I turn on the computer and the bootscreen appears, funny lines and flashes appear. When Windows loads up, lines appear across the screen. If I open a game those glitches still don't go away. I tried to find the latest update for a RADEON 9800 PRO driver for Windows XP but can't find one.. here are some pictures -

I tried reinstalling my driver from a CD but after reinstallation when Windows loads up, the computer freezes and I can only access on Safe Mode so I did a system restore and now I'm still stuck like this..

So my final question is..

How the hell do I fix this?
If I need to update my driver where can I find the right update? (I've been searching ages and I'm not sure which one I need..)

A:Glitches on Boot screen and Windows

Well you might need to try download driver from Website and click on ATI Products then make sure you download right software and driver for it. Or also double check see sometimes videocards can go bad over time there are newer ones. I know it is fine before maybe they stop makeing drivers for that series. Just check see if they do have that driver for it. If not you might have to upgrade or just check also see it is your moniter?

if you name it the same and put in same folder yes will over write

bak 1 10gb
added new files
bak 2 12gb or if files where removed 8gb
and so on
or keep name same prompt of over write because neam is the same and in same place
bak1 was 10 now will be 12gb or the smaller 8gb
or if smaller will be smaller with less
I don't know if it can append
that is check for duplicates and ignor and only add new files
I use acronis it will append existing files I have not used this feature I over write with a new bak up

save the results / reboot the router
go to the wireless section (while still wired)
set a NEW SSID
enable broadcast
select a channel
disable encryption(for now)
save/restart the router

disconnect the wired system, wait 30secs and replug the wire again
verify your system is in the LAN address range (run->cmd /k ipconfig)
verify you can browse the Internet
take another system and access the router wirelessly
verify you see your new SSID
and you can connect w/o encryption

once this works, you can go back and enable encryption -- BUT
be sure to update the router firmware and the WiFi adapter(s) in your systems.

Hi there:

My WD 320 ATA100 hard drive were working as an additional storage. It used to work well. One day, I removed the drive and then plugged it in again, and Window XP does not detect it!

I am concerned if it got initialized, my files kept therein will be deleted. Please teach me what to do.

Thank you.

3) Did you try mapping it? Right click on the drive in disk management and assign it a drive letter. Does it show now?
4) Have you tried it on other computers? Does it work?

Randomly blacks out and comes back up within a few seconds, cursor centered, all windows minimized. Also restarts entire system when attempting to start World In Conflict. Started when the card was momentarily removed while the pc was off for routine dust cleaning. had issues ever since. Nothing was awry before this.

A:Radeon 9250, glitches with XP64

The card may have been damaged by static electricity when the card was removed or the AGP socket has dust down deep... Pull the card and carefully clean the AGP socket again

Hi all I m looking for some help I am currently running a Dell Dimension desktop years old I decided to try souping up the graphics The card is a Nvidia GT by PNY I also upgraded the PSU However I have had alot of problems I will list the steps I have taken - First I ran the card with a new w CHEAP psu This worked fine for - hours of gaming before the display corrupted and froze After this whenever I tried booting with the new card I would get slight glitches on the glitches card with Graphics new windows boot screens some horizontal white lines dots The PC would get to the windows login then display a bunch of black and white stripes I figured a high end PSU would fix this problem so I invested in a w Bluestorm II I still get exactly the same errors on booting the glitches are even in the same location on the screen every time However I am now able to login to windows only now wherever I move the cursor tiny little red grey lines appear then the graphics will start to crash I have updated my graphics drivers and even the BIOS Is this Graphics glitches with new card most likely a hardware or software problem If it could be a driver problem should I format the HDD I Graphics glitches with new card don t think the card is damaged as it will display things ok for a while then starts to corrupt nbsp

A:Graphics glitches with new card

Couple things:
It is an AGP, correct?
You have the connection hooked-up for the card to the psu that is required for a 7300GT AGP?
refer to this, it's an evga but the same thing:
Your stock psu was either 250 or 305w which may have been fine to run the card. The 305w has 22amps (more than enough for a 7300GT)
Good luck

A:Lost and confused!! Please Help!!

First read this:

We are not a "chat" site. We are a Hardware site primarily. Change the title of this thread

Minidumps point to:
NDIS.SYS (Network adapter)
NTFS.SYS (Hard drive file corruption)
BCMWL5.SYS (Network adapter error)
TCPIP.SYS (Network card)
WIN32K.SYS (Windows corruption)

An internal wireless or wired network adapter may be bad

Remove any external network cards or USB adapters and retry the Windows install

I have a laptop which is wirelessly networked to my router.
Whenever i run a new Internet Explorer window, the screen freezes and it take 5-10 seconds for the homepage to load. But when i click a link on a page that opens a new window, it'll load straight away.

How do i fix this?

My confusion is about Barebones "kits." I think the kits are the mobo and processor with; maybe, RAM or a case. Please correct me
if I'm wrong.

I've seen Porta and New Egg already. I know which CPU to buy
and I'll get a mobo that works with it; hopefully, I'll buy together.
If I need DDR 2 RAM, I'll get it.

Are these "kits" the mobo, CPU, case, and RAM?
Or should I just pick up a mobo/CPU combo at
my local retailer? If they don't come with a case, I have a good one already.



A:Confused by Marketing........

Barebones= Case, power supply and motherboard. No memory, CPU, hard drives or anything else

My first reaction if your games are crashing is to check that you are using the latest DirectX 9.0c. Go to

If they still crash, then download and install the latest driver for your video card.

(I hope you have access to a computer with a CD burner.)

I've found this tool very helpful at identifying bad memory. It's positively identified bad ram 100% of the time for me. Download this and follow the instructions to burn it to a blank CD-R. Then boot from the CD-R on your suspect computer. Run the Extended Diagnostics for at least one complete cycle. (Usually if it doesn't detect RAM pattern errors on the first cycle then the RAM is good and there isn't much need to run additional cycles.)

Post the results here.

You should check the battery life. Also, 1GB of RAM does not make Vista happy. Up the RAM or downgrade to XP.

I just recently built my first computer. Most everything is going fine, except that my LG DVD burner is not found by my OS (XP Home Edition) in its normal operating mode. However, it is being found in safe mode and it is seen in BIOS.
I have contacted LG about this, but haven't heard anything back yet. I'm not suprised since it was Sunday when I contacted them, but I really want to get the new rig going. Right now it is a really expensive doorstop since I can't get the drivers loaded for everything.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions it will be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

Forgot to mention that I cannibalized the DVD drive from my old rig since I got it last January when my old drive stopped working. No sense in throwing away $60.

Running XP Pro. Computer reboots randomly. May be while using it or most often when idle. System Restore would not work until turned off and back on, but of course I lost all restore points.

Tried Spybot Seach&Destroy, Adware, ATF_Cleaner, AVG Anti-Spyware, SuperAntiSpyware, Panda Activescan. None found anything.

Attached is HJT log. I would really appreciate any help I can get.
