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.)

Hi everyone I have a Netgear N wireless router that I bought and have been using since together with an adtec modem on my at amp t internet sevice My modem went out and I replaced it with the now recommended replacement modem which is the Motorola As a result and in doing so my settings are having to be reset on my N router for my wireless signal settings Resetting Netgear N300 on router... to be used for my wierless devices In trying to do so and in going through the setup Resetting settings on Netgear N300 router... of the router again I ve discovered in logging into the Netgear website to recover reset the router settings for the new modem setup I m being told by Netgear that the N router I bought came with only a day tech support and that I can purchase a tech support extended plan for for yr or for yrs for them to be able to help me and synchronize and reset the router settings Quite honestly I can t see spending this much extra money on support for a router that cost me in the first place I may as well just buy another router for to get another day tech support and to provide support in setting up the new one but it s the principle of the thing and it s such a waste to trash the present router when it is in perfect working order otherwise Then again if this is how shoddy and shysterish Netgear s tech support is I don t believe I would want to support them or in anyway encourage them in their use of a policy that is so unfair and lacking in flexibility to such a small assistance request to reset this modem which would not take them but maybe minutes or less My question therefore is this Has anyone out there experienced a similar or like situation and is there a workaround or another solution to this other than going through Netgear to reset the router s settings Is there a way to recover or discover the settings and reset them manually myself I very much appreciate any help anyone can offer and I thank you all in advance for any help and any advice anyone can offer Thanks alot nbsp

A:Resetting settings on Netgear N300 router...

Hey drpepper. You can manually reset your router settings to its default settings as they were when you bought it. I would disconnect the router from the modem and just use the simple procedure to reset the router. You can then access the router setup page and change the default password, network name (SSID), and set up your encryption mode (wpa2 preferred) and create a password/network key to secure your router. Save any changes you make, and when done,power off the router. Power on your modem, wait a minute,then power up the router, wait a minute, then see if you can detect your network. All of the info for doing this is in the N300 router setup manual, with the reset procedure on page 39.

We just bought a monitor U2713H direct from Dell.

When we click on Factory Reset, the monitor doesn?t go back to Factory default setting.

-In particular, Contrast/Brightness: 0.
In terms of Color Setting, Input color Format: None.
Preset Modes: Movie

-Then we click on Reset Color Settings, Input Color Format: RGB, Preset Modes: Standard.

-When click on Factory Reset again, Contrast/Brightness and Color Setting come back to the same condition as above (Contrast/Brightness are 0, Input color Format: None.
Preset Modes: Movie).

-After we try to set up Contrast/Brightness to 50/50, we shut down desktop or turn off the power button on the monitor. Then we turn on computer or turn on power button on the monitor, Contrast/Brightness are 0, Input Color Format: None, Preset Modes: Movie.

-In summary, all menu settings can?t be saved by the monitor and Factory Reset doesn?t work.

Any idea would be highly appreciated. Thank you a lot in advance

I have joined a computer (PC1) to a domain control server (2008), and user able to login using their domain user account - although recently I have found out that even though the computer (PC1) do not connect to a server, user still able to access using their domain account.
Is there a way for me to restrict domain account user from accessing the computer (PC1) if they are disconnected from server?
Hope my explanation make sense to you guyz.

Thank in advance
 

A:Prevening domain user from accessing Computer

Lots to be considered. Joining a domain is intended to give the company admin configuration control of all the company users.
This is normal, expected and even proper for the company to do this.




restrict domain account userClick to expand...

hmm; only the company admin should be able to do this and almost always it is done using some scripts, NOT by loggin into your PC. So - - who is accessing your PC remotely, the admin - - how do you know this occurs?

PCs joined to a domain usually get a replacement for PC Login - - the network form and that creates a link to the domain controller.

Hi!

I'm about to purchase Total War: Rome II and want to run it with "Ultra settings" and high framerate. My configuration is:

Motherboard: GA-EP35-DS3
Processor: Duo Core 2 E6850 3.0 GHz
GPU: GeForce 880 GT 512 MB

RAM: 4 GB DDR2

Do I have to upgrade my hardware? If so, what would you recommend? Would a new
GPU be enough?

I need all the help I can get. Thanks!
 

A:Ultra settings...

To answer your question, yes you will have to update, the 8800 GT is way out of date and I don't know for sure if you can run it on low settings with decent frame rate let alone Ultra. The Core 2 Duo will also be outdated by todays standards but for me the game is not too CPU intensive.

You can start by grabbing a new GPU, something like a R9 270X or GTX 760 will be enough to get Ultra with reasonable framerate, but your CPU will be the bottleneck next.

At this point, I would just about say start a new system, because I don't think reaching Ultra in Rome Total War 2 is going to be easy with a Core 2 Duo and for sure not on an 8800 GT

Let me start off saying Different Sizes 2 Have Up The Show Monitors Settings But Same I actually have monitors but my rd monitor is an old one and shouldn t matter at this time since its SD and not HD I have other monitors though Both are HD televisions One is like inch the other is inch the inch one is connected to my cable for tv as well Everything was working fine for a long time till I downloaded windows Now I have both set to the highest settings of x But when I move things from my inch to my inch The things on the inch are 2 Monitors Have The Same Settings But Show Up Different Sizes giant and blown out of proportion now I tested this with internet explorer and if I have internet explorers zoom settings set to on the inch When I move the window to the inch It suddenly reads it at zoom And if I set it to on the inch and move it to the inch it reads it at zoom It didn t used to do this Also this happens with games now which is even far worse If im in the inch everything is fine but if I move a game window over to the inch everything becomes scrunched together and text is blown up to huge proportions and I don t even know how to fix this for gaming The odd thing is The desktop background and toolbars are all set to the proper size and look the same across both monitors Or if they aren t I cant detect 2 Monitors Have The Same Settings But Show Up Different Sizes any discernable difference like I can if I move a window from one to the other BUT 2 Monitors Have The Same Settings But Show Up Different Sizes its clear that the mouse pointer is much larger on the inch tv Is this an issue with something else im doing wrong Is there a way to lock everything or at least games and internet explorer to be just normal and the same betwixt the This might seem like just a minor annoyance at least for browsing the interent But if im gaming it just screws everything up Can anyone offer any help please I can give graphic card settings and even screen shot the difference between the if youd like nbsp

A:2 Monitors Have The Same Settings But Show Up Different Sizes

I have mostly fixed the problem! In the resolution settings there is an option that says make text and other items larger or smaller. For some odd reason all of the different monitors were set to different sizes. After switching all those to a small size. That immediately fixed the issue with games looking blown up and gargantuan on my 60 inch tv. But the charms bar was still huge. So going to the settings through the load up screen and not desktop mode in windows 8 I went to the settings and in the display settings there was another option for toolbars and whatnot which was set to default only on the 60 inch tv. When I set that to small like the rest that fixed the issue with that. So everything seems to be fixed right........ sadly no its a lot better than it was but not completely fixed yet.

While for gaming its definatly fixed. When I move an internet window from one to the other monitors the zoom sizes still change size between the 3 monitors. While this isn't a big issue since its something I can deal with. I would like to fix it if I can. What I would really like is to know if theres a way I can lock the zoom mode betwixt all 3 monitors for the internet settings. I checked the internet options and didn't notice anything that stood out to me for locking for fixing that.

When I was at my work computer it has 4 monitors, 3 are the same and 1 is a large tv. I noticed that when I moved stuff into the large tv such as an internet window, it didn't change the zoom size on my work station so im wondering what the difference is between them.

On a side note. For some reason when I start up games now most start up in stereoscopic mode. I figured out that ctrl+t shuts it off in most cases but it didn't used to do that and in my NVidia settings I cant seem to find any option for 3d vision/stereoscopic mode. This may require a full post but figured id ask it here for now.

I was having trouble with my wireless router, even when connected by a cable. I was getting the message "DNS server not responding".

I played with the settings and it seems to be working now.

What does "Enable WAN Ping Respond" do?
What does "Enable DNS relay" do?
Should avoid arp attack be enabled? (It seems obvious it should be but by default it was disabled).
 

A:Dlink router settings

Which model Router do you have. So we all can help you out.
Disconnect the WAN (internet yellow or blue port) first
Power cycle the Router unplug it

Power cycle the modem first wait 30 seconds then connect the power.
Turn on back the Router
Connect the Router to the Modem
It should get IP from your ISP and DNS Servers should be one to two of them listed.
All PCs on your network should be powered cycled or rebooted a this point.

Notice: Your New Router comes with CD use that to setup it up your new router. Leave the defaults active unless you know what your doing and until you get use too your router features.

I have two SanDisk flash drives (8 & 32 GB) and a 32 GB SanDisk Micro SD card and, as of yesterday, the folder icons have changed to shortcut icons that refer to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe F/c "start %cd%\sony.exe && %windir%\explorer %cd%\Extras". 'Extras' is just one of the folders on my 8GB flash drive. My files are still on all of my devices, but I cannot access them. After seeing the C prompt statement, I figured I am way out of my league. What do I need to do to restore my folder icons and directly access my files again?

My thanks in advance for your help.

A:Folder icons changed to shortcuts

The files have been corrupted, so I don't think they will be recoverable. Always use SD flash drives for temporary storage, and back up important files also on a DVD or on a second standard hard drive

Up until recently, I'd never been particular about peripherals. In fact, it is only now that I've begun to experiment with the features of my mouse driver -- all of which are quite new to me. So I'm curious as to what mouse settings you guys use.

For now, mine are as follows:

- Polling rate is still at default 8ms.
- Mouse speed is at 6/11 in Windows, enhanced pointer precision off, MarkC fix enabled.
- Mouse dpi settings are at 1200 dpi on a 1920x1080 monitor. I toggle down to 400 dpi when necessary.
- Usually, I have the in-game mouse sensitivity set to medium or low.

I'm using a Corsair M60.

What settings do you use when gaming? Do you use these same settings for everything else?
 

A:Mouse settings?

I don't really have access to my desktop right now, so this is a wild guess on my memory, on what I use:

Windows sens. something like 6/10.
1080p monitor.
Maxed polling rate (1000?)
2600DPI on desktop
3400DPI on FPS and other usual games
5600DPI for some weird games with slow movement, or LoL/HoN/DotA (HoN I play mainly) or other RTS as necessary.

RAM: APACER 8GB DDR3 @ 1333 Mhz

I was trying to play Rome: Total War (a game made way back in 2004) at max settings and at 1600x900 resolution (which is the max resolution of my monitor) and I get an average framerate of 20 fps, often even lower. So I checked GPU usage during the game, turns out it never reached 20%. But when I lowered the graphics settings, the fps immediately jumped to 60. As far as I can tell from task manager, there seems to be high CPU usage during gaming, but it doesn't tell how much exactly. So does this mean higher graphics settings require faster CPU clocks and not just a faster GPU? Or does it just mean there's a stability problem with my PC that's affecting its performance?
 

A:Do you need higher CPU speed to play at higher graphics settings in games?

What power supply do you have?

Hi everyone,
I need some advice please..
For quite a few years I had a Canon iP5000 and when I wanted to print a document from my PC I simply pressed PRINT and the printer would automatically come on print my document and then after a few minutes shut down again.
I was really annoyed when the nozzles got clogged and now the machine is useless.
I bought a new Canon MG5350 (slower and noisier and doesn't print anywhere as good as the iP5000 ). Can anyone advise me if it is possible to set the MG5350 up so as to operate the same way as I had the iP5000 ( I.e start when I press PRINT on my computer and shut down after printing).

Regards eddiemac.

A:Help with monitor settings

All LCD monitors have a native resolution. If you look through the documentation that came with your LCD monitor, it will tell you what the native or optimal resolution should be. Looking at your picture you have above, you are NOT running at the 19" LCDs native resolution. Most likely you need to be running: 1366x768, 1440x900, 1680x1050, or 1920x1080. Crank that slider all the way to the right, that is usually where the LCD screens native resolution resides. Hope this helps, take care!

After reboot, I did a another " ping -f -l 1400 www.yahoo.com " and got "Packet needs to be fragmented but DF Set" error again. I lower the value again and another reboot, I get the same error.

Dear All.
I have been stuck to a peculiar problem. Let me discuss the situation. I Have got the following configuration: Asus motherboard with Intel Dual Core processor, 2 GB of DDR2 RAM and one 80GB P-ATA and one 500 GB S-ATA HDD. I have installed Windows in the S-ATA HDD and decided to use the P-ATA HDD as additional storage drive. Now the problem is, sometimes the system cannot detect the P-ATA HDD, and sometimes when it detects it appears as Primary IDE Slave and in that case the SATA drive disappears from the boot priority drive list in bios setting. So the system cannot boot. Presently I am using my PC without connecting the P-ATA drive. But I want to use both of them. In this situation can u masters help me out of this problem? Thanks in advance........ Kabiraj.
 

A:My SATA HDD is not available for boot priority selection in BIOS settings

Is the BIOS updated to it's latest firmware?
Alternative solution would be that you buy an pata HDD USB box and put the pata HDD in there.

A:Best way to transfer my documents/pictures from corrupt hard drive

Hi Mike
Assuming your hard drive is still in working order and uncorrupted by the lightning strike I don`t think it should be too difficult.
I had a similar problem and got round it by buying a :- USB 2.0 to SATA IDE Hard Drive Adapter Converter Cable, of Ebay in the UK for approx 7.USB-SATA-IDE-Hard-Drive-Adapter-Converter (brilliant piece of kit and worth every penny)
Just remove the HD from the old computer and power it up on your desk using the purchased device and connect to your new computer USB port.
Open Windows Explorer on your new computer to view the contents of your old HD and "Drag and Drop" or "Copy & Paste" the files required to your new computer.
If your old HD is corrupt as mine was you may require some suitable software. I used "EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard" (not the free edition) although the free edition may be worth trying before going to any great expense.
Hopefully your HD is uncorrupted.
Hope you fully understood my explanation and good luck.
Regards
Danny

Hi,

Restored laptop (Acer Aspire 5735, OS Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit) to factory settings a few months ago and noticed that there was a lot of space being used up on C: drive even though I hadn't started installing programs and putting files back on to laptop.

Used SpaceSniffer to see where all the space was being used up and it only found the C: drive to have size of 38.1GB even though it should have 69.6GB. Also ran WinDirStat and that also said C: drive had size 38.1GB.

Any suggestions on why there seems to be 31.5GB missing?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
thanks!
 

A:Missing hard drive space after restoring laptop to factory settings

"it should have 69.6GB"...
Is the drive 80GB unformatted? Did you format the drive when starting the restore? This is known as a "destructive" restore. If you didn't, it is possible that the old Vista files are still on the drive, along with the new files, taking up the space

Of course. Games need about 3 cores now adays, Crysis 2 BF3, use up about 60 percent of total CPU power. Your CPU and RAM is more then enough. You need a good video card now, and you have that in the 6850. You have them in crossfire, you should be able to play any game @ 1080p 8x CSAA 16xAF high quality,, game on high quality settings. gl

You guys have any idea what might be causing this problem?

Thanks in advance

A:Building new gaming comp for Star Wars: TOR. What are you running?

I am assuming that your present budget excludes the monitor.

Here's what I suggest:

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz - $219.99
ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 - $189.99
MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC Radeon HD 6950 - $239.99
CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 - $149.99
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) - $69.99
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB - $54.99
COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II - $79.99

TOTAL - $1004.93

That leaves you with $700 for OS and peripherals.

I am personally using the Microsoft Sidewinder X4 and Logitech MX518 as my keyboard / mouse combo. Really happy with them. However, it's more down to personal preference.

With any cash that's left over you might want to get an SSD/Blu-Ray/etc. Or you might look at getting a second HD 6950 for CF.

A:Which processor and mobo for gaming comp?

Its likely the first one, as has the highest clock speed. However, none of them are really going to be very useful for gaming on all the very oldest of games.

Some more information is required on the sorts of games you wish to play before even spending some money, as what your hoping for might not be possible for the budget you have in mind.

Buying in Ireland, or online is fine.

A:Returned laptop to factory settings, yet strange problem getting worse

First thought is it sounds as if the 'left-click' is sticking or repeating very fast.
Does the same effect happen if you use the touch pad or a plugged-in USB mouse?
Can you go into Control panel, hardware, devices and printers, mouse, 'Pointer options' tab. Set the 'Set pointer speed' in the centre of the scale.
Then untick the box 'Enhance pointer precision'
In the 'Buttons' tab, click 'Restore defaults'
See if that makes any difference.

A:Resetting default audio settings?

You have probably made your headphones default, and turned off the speakers.
In the taskbar, near the clock, right-click on the speaker icon. Choose 'Playback devices'. In the new window, do you see 1 or 2 items? Speakers and below that Speaker/headphones. Right-click on what is showing, and in the list tick the options, 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'.
Now you should have 'Speakers' line showing, so right-click on it, and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the box, you see a drop-box that gives 2 options. Make it to be 'Use this device-enable'. Click OK. That should work.

Title pretty much says it all. I am a student and do a lot of work on my desktop. However, I take my laptop to school with me and would like it to transfer(sync) everything for me. I was thinking about writing a .bat file to do this for me, but it's been a long time since I've done any serious programming. Both computers are running windows 7 and connected via wireless network. I have a home group setup and I have not deeply looked through the sharing settings.
 

A:Wondering how to sync my documents from my desktop to laptop automatically

Checkout DropBox as a possible solution

Pluses:
> It's freeware. First 2GB storage is free (and if i recall reasonably priced after that)
> It'll both sync files between computers AND keep a copy on an available server should you need them from elsewhere

Make sure you use a PRIVATE Dropbox folder
Minuses:
> Files are kept on DropBox servers. PRIVATE folders should only be accessible by yourself with secure login but personally, i still don't put my "confidential" files on any public server just being "cyber" cautious

A:External HDD is recognized but there's no folder

Hi Pam and welcome to TechSpot.

What kind of external HD are we talking about? Brand and model would help along with the type of interface, assume it's probably Usb2 but still need to know for sure. When you say it is recognized does this mean you can see it in Windows Explorer and if so, does it have a drive letter assigned to it? That should be enough to get things started.

gforce 6200 512 vid card
500 watt psu
160 gig WD 7200 rpm
amd athlon xp 2600 1.9

So i added new ram pc 2700 1 gig ram 2 sticks and my computer locks up and restarts randomly and will sometimes loop when starting up, it doesn't matter what im doing it will do all of these!!

When i put back in my old ram 256 and 512 my computer goes back to being stable!! So to me once i hit 1 gig of memory the computer locks up or restarts whenever it wants to!!

All my motherboard drivers are old and same with bios, So basically to sum it up i use whatever drivers that come with the motherboard cd!! I don't know how to upgrade these im kinda of a noob lol.
 

A:Comp locks up and restarts after adding 1GB of RAM

It looks like you should be able to run up to three sticks of PC 27000 on this motherboard so that shouldn't be the problem. So we should probably start with the premise that the new memory may be defective or there's something out of whack with the BIOS settings for your new memory. Might want to set memory timings to auto in the BIOS for starters and reset the processor to stock speeds if you're overclocking. Then you need to run memory diagnostics by starting with one of the two new sticks of memory ... if the first passes remove it and test the second. Hopefully, this will give us some indication of where the problem lies.

Hello. I have a folder share on my Windows 7 computer and I was trying to access it with a Windows XP Home computer in the house. However, I kept getting an "Access Denied" error whenever I tried to write to the folder. How can I fix this?

Also, sometimes when accessing .zip files and .exe fines from one XP Home computer to another XP Home computer, I get a "Unspecified security risk" and "Access denied" error respectively. How do I fix this?
 

A:Access Denied error when trying access Windows 7 folder from Windows XP

multiple levels of controls here

the XP needs the LLTP service from SP3 to be able to share w/ win7

there are two layers of access for share resources:

the network access
the NTFS access
The simplest solution is to use Simple Sharing and share via the All Users\Shared Documents\ directory. The Admin can set Allow Modifications (or not as needed),
which create the NTFS perms for the <Everyone> group.

So, *IF* you have network access (you can see the shared folder and it's contents),
then the NTFS permissions are the controlling factor.

IF not, the the network access is in control and you need to figure out Simple Sharing vs not-so-simple and those requirements

A:Are my settings safe for linked 2wire & netgear routers?

I think you'd be better setting up your AT&T router as a switch, and then running your Netgear router as your main router.

DHCP should be setup on the Netgear router, and then that used to assign IP addresses to your networked devices.

Your AT&T one should have wireless disabled, DHCP disabled, and be assigned a static IP address. You can then use a cat 5 ethernet cable to connect the two routers.

Most of all, I would be setting up the AT&T as a DMZ, because you want the extra security it provides by isolating the internet from your private network (Netgear router).

In your situation you want the AT&T router to act purely as a switch, and nothing more. Your Netgear router can handle everything else. You also need to be aware that setting up a DMZ is more for public network devices, e.g. for webservers, so you can place them in the "public" area for net access, and hide your private network (Netgear in your case) away from it. You do not want to be connecting any devices to your AT&T router if it has DMZ enabled.

Here is a good, brief read on what DMZ is.

I have an old laptop that contracted a virus that I couldn't purge. So, I reformatted the harddrive using DBAN. Then I booted the laptop with Windows XP. Now I'm trying to connect to the internet using a LAN connection and am getting no connection.

I have a Dell Latitude D810. I went to the Dell site (on my working desktop) and attempted to download all of the drivers onto a flash drive to transfer to the laptop. I tried double-clicking on the downloads that I had (downloaded all of the "recommended" links available) and nothing really happens.

As you can tell I have very little knowledge with this part of laptop setup.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
 

A:Reformatted comp, loaded Windows XP and now can't connect to Internet

Hi, You have installed XP on the laptop, so did it install right through to the desktop?
And you have entered the product key? Can you go into the BIOS and check that the LAN setting is enabled? If so, it should be able to connect to the 'net, assuming there are no other problems. Then you should be able to go to Dell's site and download all the drivers provided by them for your laptop. There may be several drivers you need that must be downloaded from their own makers sites. You can find out which by using, Control panel, system, device manager. Look for the devices with yellow triangles next to them. That indicates that the driver is either faulty, or more likely, missing. Hope that makes sense.

Prior to resetiing? You mean you used the options to restore to factory condition? Then you almost certainly just need to re-install the driver for the blue-tooth device.

A:Comp can't detect CD-R

Since you said old computer I'll make the assumption it is a PATA/IDE drive as opposed to SATA (Big wide 40 pin connector vs small tall sideways L connector). If that assumption is right you'll want to double check the jumper settings on the drive.

If its the only drive on the ribbon, set it to Master. If its 1 of 2 devices on the cable, one must be set to Master and the other to Slave (alternatively both could be set to Cable Select but I don't recommend it).

Should be set after that provided the drive is getting power to it.

Hello,

I am currently trying to fix an Acer laptop for a friend of mine and from what I can tell it looks as if her laptop continues to reset itself back to its original settings. For example, the desktop background goes back to the slandered picture, desktop icons that were once there are gone and programs have to be reinstalled. Neither of us have an exact cause for this issue, except she did mention how she had a router problem within the last week, but I wouldn't see how that would constantly be affecting the laptop itself when the router has been fixed. Every day the computer resets itself and its becoming a frustrating task for her and she's just about given up on it.

Is there, perhaps, a control I could change? Could it be a possible virus or malware issue?

Please help, I'm becoming a little desperate for help myself.

Thank you,

A:Is my comp any good?

The GT220 is your bottleneck. That's a budget card and thrown in a lot of these prebuilt systems.

While logged in as administrator, I copied a share folder to my local computer. I've manage to delete all the contents within the folder but can't delete the folder itself. The error I get when I right-click and select delet is :

Cannot delete: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the files is not currently in use.

When I try to delete the folder for command prompt using RD /S I get the error:

Access is denied

When I go into properties, there is no SECURITY tab but only GENERAL & CUSTOMIZE. Also the folder attributes are 'read-only' but of course Windows won't let me change that either.

Can someone show how to delete this folder?

Thank you

Hello all Well a advice new Building need comp, i m building a cost -efficient Gaming Computer I want to spend under Dollars I need some advice The pieces Building a new comp, need advice i want to buy are below please let me know if these are great The reason im getting a new PC is for star craft Garry s mod Cry-sis and Well pretty much Any PC game I want to run them smoothly on High Doesn t have to be Ultra Okay Here are the Few items i ve picked out AMD Phenom II X T Black Edition Thuban GHz Socket AM W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT ZFBGRBOX x GB HDD Caviar I need help selecting a Motherboard And RAM Something Between Dollars and Oh and Ofcourse i m getting a Gaming Case And i ve already got an ATX power supply running at W Any Help is Appreciated Reason i want a HEXACORE is because i dont want to lag two years from now on the technology that comes out i want this computer to last me until im and im Thanks nbsp

A:Building a new comp, need advice

Methinks the CPU and motherboard should be decided in a package... Pick the motherboard first, then CPU, as it is less important. Your motherboard determines the ability to tweak and adjust, and is key to the long term reliability.
You left out Power Supply... critical in a good gaming machine... as well as case and CPU cooling.
You probably cannot do what you wish for under $800... you are going to be involved in too many compromises.
Building a budget gamer is not going to get you there two years from now. You don't have any information on problems and troubles and long term reliability. Nobody knows the direction the Hexacore is pointed two years from now.
It would see to me that building for today, using a CPU and motherboard that are three months old or more, will save you a lot of bucks. Get a motherboard that can be upgraded to a better processor, then wait for things to develop.
You might even want to wait a few weeks... until October 1, to see where technology is heading... Two ares are becoming more important... USB 3.0 will be out, and you will be able to see which way the new drives are going.
There are plenty of tests of hard drives that have just been released... Look at Tom's and other websites for the reports on what is good and what is fast
It is likely the new hard drive and the motherboard with its memory abilities and sockets will be more important... but getting the Hexacore and the right memory and the right hard drive on a board (with RAM) that is only $50 to $150 may disappoint you down the road..
Get a board with USB 3.0 on it, along with the capability to utilize 6 to 8 memory sockets so you know you have the latest... and with the capability to handle two or three of the best processors. for future upgrades.
Were it mine, I would build a decent gamer system now with the plan to learn from what you do, then sell that one and build the great one two years from now based upon what you have learned.

Hey this is my first build so I Built Won't On, SATA Suggestions? Comp Newly But is LED Turn On! ve been extra careful to make sure I ve done everthing correct however when I went to turn the Newly Built Comp Won't Turn On, But SATA LED is On! Suggestions? PSU on the green LED on my motherboard that recognises the SATA drivers my optical TB Western Digital and a Sony DVD writer and lights up yet when I push in the ON button on the outercase NOTHING happens No fans turn on nothing Everthing I ve bought is new and reccommended so Im assuming it s the way I ve wired it up which is very possible because when it came to the PSU wiring I wasn t too confident what I was doing what right My motherboard is ASUS M A GTD PRO USB CPU Newly Built Comp Won't Turn On, But SATA LED is On! Suggestions? is AMD Phenom II X RAM - x GB of Corsair DDR Memory The drivers mentioned above Cooler Master Sileo case and PSU unit The power switch runs through an adapter chip so I took it out and plugged it straight into the motherboard but still nothing happened Now it could possibly be the PSU but it s brand new and in the manual it reccommends a watt so I m covered plus Im using the built in graphics card so no extra wattage is needed Like I said I wasn t very sure I was wiring everything up right to the PSU All the wires had things like P P P etc is this significant to what you plug into it I just clicked in one that fitted into the SATA drives the PSU fan is a pin but my mobo only has a pin connecter but even so this can t be the problem because NOTHING will power on The ATX power on the PSU is Pin which fits perfectly in the motherboard and there is also a or pin on the motherboard I have alternately tried by itself and with still no luck Your help would be really appreciated Josh nbsp

A:Newly Built Comp Won't Turn On, But SATA LED is On! Suggestions?

...the PSU fan is a 4 pin but my mobo only has a 3 pin connecter but even so, this can't be the problem because NOTHING will power on.Click to expand...

Yes it can. If the motherboard senses the CPU fan isn't connected properly, it won't power up. I looked up the motherboard and I believe you have connected the CPU fan to the wrong connector. The CPU fan motherboard connector definitely has 4 pins and is labeled CPU fan on the motherboard. Look for the connector along the top edge of the motherboard.

I'm debating wether or not I should buy the nvidia 9800gtx, can it run mw2 on high settings without sli and crysis? Well any new game on high without sli, or should I try to get a 9800 gx2. I'm on a budget though,, less then 200 dollars and I don't have room to sli, that's why I ask about gx2, can anyone help??
 

A:Can an Nvidia 9800 GTX run Crysis on the highest visual settings

When I first read the question, I thought you posted this 2 years ago.

For 200 dollars, you can get the latest released GTX460 768MB. Unless you're not talking about US dollars (if its not, pls tell us conversion rate).

A:Overclock help needed - Q8200, fan, FBS, BIOS settings?

What's affordable, how much are you looking to spend?

For a cheaper cooler I really like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Another good one is the Cooler Master Hyper 212.

Something to keep in mind is that overclocking is not going to free up CPU cycles. It'll make things run faster but if an application is currently taking 100% of your CPU, overclocking is not going to clear that up.

I just installed a with a AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor with a MSI 790XT-G45 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboardand for whatever reason I cant get it to load my windows. I did the BIOS setup etc, but always gives me an error message and a blue screen. Is it because i had an intel proc/motherboard and the drivers on my hard drive are interfering? help me please.
 

A:Installed a new motherboard and CPU, but comp won't boot, suggestions?

Which operating system? Windows has issues with swapping out a motherboard is the hardware is significantly different from what was in there.

A:Comp starting issues

This "repaired" computer may not be setup properly.You could still have a bad power supply or motherboard. Do you see any yellow exclamation marks in the Device Manager?

Just installed new mobo to replace old one that died. Swapping in one exactly the same but computer won't detect keyboard so I can't get into bios. This is the reason I decided to update BIOS. Followed the directions on Intel website for updating BIOS both with flash drive and cd. Neither worked. Version of BIOS is 431, tried to update to 444 then 478. MoBo is an INTEL D915GAG socket 775. When attempting to update comp just hangs cpu fan is on but the monitor light just blinks off and on. Tried to enter setup by putting jumper on pins 2 and 3 which is labeled 'config' then upon start-up message 'entering setup...' appears at bottom of screen but it just hangs there.
 

A:Comp hanging on BIOS update

You may have a motherboard that cannot be repaired, if you used the incorrect BIOS, or attempted to install it in an unacceptable way, it can render the board useless... the reason is that the system cannot run to go back and install an acceptable BIOS.
If this is the case, there is probably no fix available to you...
That is a fairly old motherboard, and lots of replacemetns and refurbs are available cheaply.. you should be able to find one for under $30 or $40..
Good luck. Let us know how it worked out for you.
