Q: Radeon 4800 Fan Speed is 0 at 71 degrees C

Is it normal for the fan speed on my Radeon 4800 to be 0 when the card temperature is 71 degrees C?

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.)

Hi All,
This is my first post here
So the issue I am facing is that I have a Dell Laptop with dual graphics card (Intel(R) 4400 integrated and AMD Radeon 8850m dedicated). The System would not detect any AMD driver installed on it. The device manager was showing only the Intel Graphics Card being installed .
Then I went on to uninstall the Catalyst Command Center from Control Panel, wherein I completely uninstalled the AMD Graphics driver and everything related to it.
Now, AMD is not at all being recognized by my system. Device manager doesnt show it even in hidden devices, DriverEasy scan doesnt read it, Even Dell System detect is failing to detect the AMD graphics Card.

How do I proceed ahead with this issue.

Have I somehow unmounted the hardware internally?
Is there anyway besides a factory reset to get this working again ( I have concerns with a factory reset also not helping me )
What system scan tools can I use to get my laptop to recognize the Device again?
Please Help
Thanks In Advance

Motherboard: Z97 GAMING 5
CPU: Intel 17-4790k
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce G1 GTX 970 4GB
Ram: 16gb ddr3

In my MSI software (MSI Command center) it goes around the 85 degrees when I play Battlefield 4 on ultra.
Is the motherboard temp the same as the CPU temp? and is 85 degrees too much?
I do use the stock cpu cooler.
Also I have a 200mm front and a 140mm in the back.

Download HWiNFO64 and use this software to compare temps. Not saying there is anything wrong with the MSI software, but there is always a possibility that it is not reading the correct temps.
Also, do you overclock? Overclocking will affect the temps, especially if you are still using stock coolers.

So basically how the title is.

My internet would drop out/freeze. Router doesn't indicate any change in service. I plug my laptop into the modem, and have prime speeds.

Restart the router. Works for awhile.
Reinstalled the firmware manually on the router.
Set the Channel off of "Auto" and put on various options of 9, 10, 11 to avoid clashes with other networks.

Freezes. Now the router indicates there's no connection. Drag the cord out of modem and test. Prime speeds.

Okay, screw this - I went and bought a new router yesterday because, sure, that Belkin one was 2-3 years old. Set it up with same channel settings, etc.

I have a laptop that runs a VPN (for work) that uses it, plus multiple iphones (3) and ipads (2) an AppleTV and a Samsung smart TV.

Like, help me please here.

A:Internet Drops Out, Consistent Speed with Modem, New Router - no solution

OK, but lets solve on thing at a time 1) ignore the VPN at work and let's get the home router stabilized.
The mobile devices are difficult to diagnose, so 2) stick with the PC for now.

Standard questions:

did you update the ethernet & wifi drivers on the PC?
have you looked to ensure your new router has the latest firmware?
*if* you have a DSL connection to the ISP, do you have the line filters on EVERY device connected to the phone line EXCEPT the line to the modem? *MUST HAVE*
Got to get these right first.

THEN, find the MTU that's right for you AT HOME and set that into the new router:

get a command prompt
ping -l 1500 -f
as long as you see Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set., reduce the 1500 by 8 and iterate with the new number
:: record the MTU that works for your ISP at home
The router conf page is accessible using your browser and HTTP://your_router_address/
You need the router password
set the new MTU. Also set a new router password and save the settngs.

The wired connection should be solid at this point.

The wifi should also be better, as long as you avoid other stations with the same channel.
I assume you've see the post re inSSIDER for wifi setup.

Hi everyone,

I seriously need some perspective. I've ordered an Overlord Tempest X270 OC 1440p monitor. I'm trying to decide between:

2. 2x nVidia GTX 970 (MSI/Asus Strix) (SLI)
3. Single nVidia GTX 980 PNY XLR8 Pro OC

Other parts are:

EVGA 850 G2
Intel Core i5 4690K
Asus Maximus VII Hero
GSkill Trident 16GB
Intel 730 Series SSD (480 GB)

Have been reading up a lot but am finding it hard to choose. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Only the first two options will get you to 120 fps on any game made within the last few years.

Most of the time I set my monitor refresh to 100Hz because there's a much greater chance that my cards can get me there.

I don't have any AMD GPUs atm so can't say about that but I will say that I've had one hell of a time getting XFX to honor their warranties in the past.

I got 2 sets (2x4GB per set, 16GB overall, all 4 slots are occupied). When I choose the XMP profile, the computer fails to post, it resets and then tells me "overclock failed".

MoBo is an Asus Maximus Vi Hero (Z87) and a Haswell Core i7 4770K with a H60 closed loop on it.

Ok, so I just recently upgraded to a Cat6 cord, I needed a longer cord and the only ones being sold where the Cat6 so I had to get it. Before I installed it, I had a Cat5E, my speed listing was about 3.8mbps give or take.. yeah crappy verizon DSL. But after hooking up the Cat6, I'm now getting about 1.2mbps. I'm rather confused on this, cause from what I read and what I know, that shouldn't cause my speed to dive bomb. And I know it's dive bombed even without the speed test, cause everythings slowed down, loading webpages, gaming, it's all miserably slow. So, I'm at a loss, did I somehow install it wrong? Did I not appease some Tech god before doing it right? Or, perhaps a faulty line?

A:New Cat6 cord, killed internet speed

Temporarily use the 5e cable again? See if it goes back to previous speed.

My guess would be this should not happen. The cable I would think is sort of a go or no go situation, meaning it works or it doesn't. I'm sure you can have cables with some 'damage' that work but at reduced capacity, but 5e and 6 should be capable of doing 1000Mbps, so when you are talking about a decline from 3.8 to 1.2 that is minuscule compared to what the cable should be capable of, so I really doubt the cable is at fault. Just a weird coincidence based on the information you've given us.

Can processor speed be increased without changing or removing any harddware

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.

So I just installed my 8350 about two days ago and I just found out that it isn't running to its full potential. It's running at 2812 MHz. when it should be running at at least 4k MHz. I tried running my game to see if it will go up and maybe its just idle to save power but that did not work. Then I went into my bios and turned off all my C-State (c1e, c6 are the only two I have). And that did not do the trick and I have ran into a brick wall. Please help me.

A:AMD 8350 Not getting correct speed

I have 3 possible solutions to the issue: 1) The CPU is flawed. 2) You are in a power saving Windows state. 3) Your CPU is running hot, which will throttle its speed to something lower.

In order to check whether your PC is in a power saving mode, go to the start menu and type in "power options". Choose the one listed under "control panel". Once you click it, it should bring up a window that tells you what power state you are in. Choose the "Balanced" plan if it is in power saving mode and see if that helps.

Secondly, download and run RealTemp and tell me what the CPU temperature is at idle and when gaming.

Recently bought the GPU and realised that my current power supply wasn't quite good enough, so I went and bought an "emergency" PSU locally. Specifically an 850w PSU by Power Zone.

Now the GPU is amazing but sometimes I struggle to run some games on full settings, such as Assassins Creed 4, Shadow Warrior, etc. , and obviously I bought the card with intentions of running games on ultra with decently good FPS.

Now to the point, is it the PSU that could be holding me down? The recommended wattage on the AMD site stated it to be 750w. and I do believe that my system specs are pretty much good enough.

I'd also like to point out that a friend recently got a Radeon 7950 and claims to run above mentioned games on full settings with no problems. Again so he claims

Does this mean there is something close to a soundcard in the GPU or does it add features to your own soundcard meaning you must have an actual sound card to be able to benefit from this feature Do you have any idea what it actually does and can put it in easy context so a retard like me can understand Best regards Obzoleet nbsp

A:AMD Radeon TrueAudio , What does it really do?

Without knowing myself, I'm going to say it sounds something like depth of field for visuals. Making audio sound as if it can be judged by how far away it is meant to be and the direction of which it is heard, by adjusting the strength of each sound within specific speakers. Probably a software implementation that can be turned on or off, depending on user choice and supporting graphics card.

recently my old router died, so I bought the new one. I connected it to my PC, entered my ISP information. It's working, but kinda slowly. My ISP speed used to be 10MB/s, but now I'm downloading torrents only with 1MB/s. Task manager shows that network is used by 10% since I have my adapers speed and duplex set to auto negotation. Do you have any ideas how to fix this?
EDIT: I use cable connection.

I have a Sapphire rhadeon 7850. It can run almost any game on highest quality. So I purchased Crysis the original off steam and attempted to run it at Very high settings. After about 10 mins the graphics card crashed. So I had to downgrade it to High. After about a day playing on high it begun to crash on high as well. I now can only run it on medium. Today it crashed while I was playing Planetside2 and it has never don't that before. And just a few minutes ago it crashed while I was playing saints row 3. I believe I have the latest drivers and I don't know exactly what to do in the amd catalyst. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Any suggestions would be helpfull.

A:Radeon HD 7850 crashing when I play games

Try the following things:

Uninstall and go through a Clean Re-install of your graphics drivers.

Download HWmonitor or your choice of GPU tempreature monitoring tool and see what type of Temps you are getting while playing games. Overheating will definitely make a GPU crash. (If it is overheating, go ahead and thoroughly clean your GPU. )

What is the rest of your computer setup?
What resolution do you play these games at?

I just did a couple speed tests on my computer.

The second test was 265pc Ping. 2.20mpbs Download speed. 0.60 Upload speed.
Are these numbers good? Thanks Ray ( hope I put this in the right forum)

A:Speed tests

With the exception of ping, they are nearly the same as what I have. Ping is a measure of time it take to get a response from a server. You could try a different server for different response times. However there are numerous reasons for fluctuation ping results, which could simply be a bad day.

Hi, I'm trying to install the XFX Radeon HD 5450 1GB graphics card into an Acer Aspire x1301-U1312. So far, I physically installed the card into the PCI express port (x16) but it doesn't seem like it's recognizing the monitor. When I remove the card and plug the HDMI cable back in the integrated GeForce 9200 graphics card, it works just fine.

What's the best solution to this problem!?

Any whom, thank you.

A:XFX AMD Radeon and Aspire x1301

Did you install the drivers before you physically installed the card? That would be my first suggestion. Check to make sure you put it in the PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot and not the PCI Express 2.0 x1 slot. Also, try the DVI or even the VGA connections on the card to see if those work instead. You might have a bad HDMI port on the card itself.

Hi folks, I'm having problems with my wireless connection on my desktop computer and I'm really stuck! The signal regularly drops to 1 bar and the speed will fluctuate anywhere between <1Mbps up to 11Mbps (although it's usually at the lower end), and sometimes it will lose connection with the router all together.
I've used a Belkin USB dongle and more recently a TP-Link PCI Express card, both N150. My router is a D-Link N150. Both the dongle and the adapter have had the same issues. In comparison, my Lenovo Z570 laptop and before it got destroyed my housemate's HP laptop had no issues, which basically leaves me with just my PC as a possible cause or some sort of setting somewhere.

Is there anyway for me to look this up somewhere with a converter or something?


A:SSD compared to an HDD in terms of speed

Not sure I understand the question. The mechanical drive would have to be just as fast 520mb/sec. Unless you mean spin speed, and thats somewhat unrelated.

What you might be questioning is megabits vs megabytes. Megabit should be written as Mb, and Megabyte is MB. But in reality there is a ton of misuse of the correct capitalization and ways to write it. I'm sure I've screwed it up a few times on these boards myself. So in a bit to byte conversion, just divide the bit number by 8.

Get an adapter and plug in the other 6 pin connector. It really doesn't matter what you read or didn't read. If the card has two connectors, both should be plugged in. All 460W power supplies are not created equal. Sometimes an indicator that a power supply is not designed to power such a card is the lack of one of the PCI-E plugs. Your 460W PSU could work but only if you power both connectors on the card.

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?

So here's the dealio. I currently have an XFX 6870 and am looking into an upgrade. I've always found x870 cards to be good cards as I have owned a 4870, 5870, and 6870. So naturally I'm looking at the 7870. Given the recent price cuts they seem like they are at a good price/performance ratio. I'm willing to spend up to $239 for a 7870. So my question is should I go for the 7870 at $239 or pick up another 6870 for $100 less and pair it with my current 6870? Which setup would perform better? And is there another option for $239 or less?

Right now I'm leaning toward the 6870 crossfire option as its cheaper and I'm already setup for crossfire as far as power supply, motherboard, etc. go but I would like yalls "professional" opinions first. Thanks ahead of time!

A:Upgrading from the XFX Radeon HD 6870

2x 6870 cards in CF should provide really decent performance across the board, and even if you've got multiple displays. What resolution do you usually play games at?

I just upgraded myself actually... moved from a 1GB 5870 to a 3GB 7970 and the difference is quite staggering. If you have the extra coin I would recommend looking into the 7950, which can be had for around $300 now. Hopefully they drop the price even further as the GTX 660 Ti gains popularity on nvidia's side. The 79xx AMD cards are pretty powerful and provide excellent support for big resolutions.

Is this even possible? Ive never seen a download speed so low, I cant even watch youtube, and forget netflix. Yet my upload seems to be through the roof. What is causing this? .58mb/s DL with a 43.26mb/s upload @ 5 ms ping.

A:Extremely low download speed and extremely high upload speed

Might I ask what time of day you did that test? In My Opinion, the Internet is like the Interstate. You can't go fast at rush hour.
You should try it at different times of day to see if it changes.
You could even try another test site
Good luck

1. screen freezes.
2. Screen corruption - blurry lines
3. screen refreshes and system can be used again.
4. ATI Catalyst Centre informs me there has been a crash and an error report will be sent.
5. Graphics are really slow (moving a window across the screen is done in jagged slow movements instead of one quick smooth motion for example).
6. We reboot to get the system back to normal state

Please tell me how to fix this.

Hello there..

I need help to find replacement fan for my xfx hd radeon 4870 ZWFC, but I don't know what the size of the fan ...

this is my card


A:XFX HD Radeon 4870 fan died

You have the fan in hand, you can measure it with a ruler across the middle of the fan and find out the size in millimeters. You could also take the fan off the card, because the size of the fan may be listed on the sticker on the back of the fan. I couldn't find a review that simply stated the fan size. You would have to find a tri-mounted fan of roughly the same size, depth, voltage and exactly the same number of fan power pins.

I dont get the internet speed that my isp offers me.
like when I surf pages and load videos it is very slow, but on the other hand my isp offers me 1mbps.
when I login to safe mode I feel that the internet there is very fast but in normal mode it is slow.
some times I get speed of 1.5mb/s from the isp and normally I get 70 kb/ps which is really slow and nothing compared to what I should be getting.
can u please fix this issue as well.

A:Slow Internet speed

I don't know that I can't fix your issue, but I can help you check for what might contribute to the slowdown:

What type of connection do you have: Dial-up, cable or DSL?
Click on Start> Settings> Control Panel> System:
[o]What is the operating system?
[o]How much Ram is installed?
Click on Start< Run> type in msconfig> Enter> Choose Startup tab
[o]How many boxes are checked?
Right click on the Taskbar> Task Manager>(in Normal Mode)
[o]Processes tab> Look at the bottom and tell me how many processes are running
[o]Performance tab> Look on the bottom for the Physical Memory
[o]How much Total Memory?
[o]How much Available Memory?
[o]How much is in the System Cache?
When I have the information from the 4 questions above, I may be able to help you.

Logging on to Safe Mode will prevent some drivers and Services from running, so the system will move faster, but you will be able to do less than in Normal Mode.

In Normal Mode, everything you have checked on the Startup Menu to start on boot has to load. Most of those processes will run in the background. This can slow you down.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I apologize in advance if I'm mistaken.

If anyone out there owns a Sapphire Radeon HD 6790 1gb video card, could somebody share me a stable overclock of this card? I just bought one and I know there're plenty of reviews on the Internet with settings to choose from.

But I want to hear from TS users which owns the card. Thanks

Ok so I have a Cisco Linksys E Wireless router Over the past month I have been experiencing severe internet speed loss due to troubles with the router and the temporary fix for it untill now was rebooting it I have recently found out that the problem causing this was heat Yes HEAT The router kept getting too hot So what I did for now is I made a prop decreased wireless Internet for routers for fixing Suggestion speed for it to raise it up off of the table a little bit then took a little space heater set to Cool and stuck it in front of it Now I believe I have fixed the problem because I have not experienced any more bitrate loss Suggestion for fixing decreased Internet speed for wireless routers yet I am planning on rigging a computer fan to it because this small space-fan is proving to be too powerful to be an efficient fix it s blowing cold air rather than warmer air like you see with computers and consoles The only problem is it s my parents router and I will have to figure something out that won t modify it at all Hope this helps anyone having the same problem nbsp

A:Suggestion for fixing decreased Internet speed for wireless routers

I have the same router Linksys E2000 Wireless router. It never gets very hot. Where do you have yours sitting. If it getting that hot you need to put a fan on it. It very well may be going bad.

Hola, amigos!
As I mentioned a few days ago, I'm getting a new graphic card.
After much compromise and rebate, I settled for a Powercolor PCS Radeon HD 5450 - and no regrets!

Actually came in 2 days earlier than the delivery due-date. Impressive.

Ah, the speed at which Fable's glorious!

Hello all,

I'm having an issue with the internet speed on my desktop computer that runs Windows is going much slower (as measured by FTP downloads) than my Mac laptop.

Both are wireless. When I download a large file, the mac computer will routinely go significantly faster (4-5x) what the Windows computer will do. The Windows computer seems to have a cap at about 200-250kbytes/sec.

Now, I just reinstalled my O/S and so I'm on a clean reinstall of Windows, and it's *still* happening, and I'm puzzled.

A few things I think it might be:

- My Macbook wireless is integrated, whereas the Windows wireless is through a Belkin F5D9050 USB connector ("Wireless G Plus MIMO")
- Perhaps there's a limiting issue on the Windows motherboard?
- Maybe something limiting within the Windows firewall or registry settings.

Any suggestions to fix this?



A:Internet speed throttle problem

I don't know, so take my comments with a grain of salt until someone else replies..

Try switching the wireless channel on the router.. For an N router (perhaps others) there are typically 11 channels. Try 1 or 11, something on the ends.

Does your windows machine have a better transfer if you bring it really close to the router?

I'm a bit stumped. I have a ATI Radeon HD 5770 (atleast thats what everything on my computer is telling me) and I'm trying to set up three monitors. every search result I get back says that you have to use the display port... but I don't have a display port. My card has a VGA, DVI and an HDMI.
looking at ATI Radeon HD 5770 cards none of them have the same connections that mine has. so I'm wondering if these graphic cards have different versions and if they do how could I find what version I have so that I could search for solutions to my problem.

Thank you,

A:GTX 670, Radeon HD 7950 (open to suggestions)

MOBO: Your Motherboard has 1x PCIE 2.0 slot. So you are good for upgrading.
PSU: A quality PSU of about 550W or greater will power a single GTX 670 or HD 7950.

Is your new PSU included in the budget of $500?

Can anyone explain the difference between the same GPU but different manufacturer (Asus card costing more than the MSI one)?Click to expand...

Usually the difference between cards are small. Some will have better cooling or one may be OC'd while the other isn't. Or some may have dual bios capabilities. I remember my old HD 6950's from sapphire had the ability to be unlocked to 6970's. All in all, it really just depends on what you want. The cards are all going to perform generally the same. If it was me, id go for the cheaper one.

Here is a article about the diffirent HD 7950's available. Maybe it will add a little more clarity to what I was explaining.,3207-14.html

If I remember correctly, the GTX 670 out performed the 7950 in most cases. But, then again. The 7950 can OC quite a deal to make it perform much like a 7970. See what others have to say, I hope I was able to help a bit.

About 5 months ago I could download a game at speeds around .8 or .9 megabyts p/second. Now, for whatever reason, my computer is never jumping above .38 m/p/s...
Also, for whatever reason, I see that some of my processors out of four will jump up and down in usage for no reason. I would have my 2nd and 3rd proc's just jump up and down to 80 percent workload and then drop for two seconds, just to repeat the cycle perfectly.. Im not sure if that has something to do with it, but it's certainly an issue id like help on. I really do appreciate and knowledge on this problem that you would be able to share with me.
Also the speed of my download will drop to about .013 m/p/s for maybe a minute, the go back to the classic .39 :/

Sounds like malware or something to me.

Ensure your antivirus, firewall and windows are up to date and run a full scan.

A:Recent Internet speed issues

Well anything less than 1Mb/s is pretty slow in this day & age, I hope you are not paying out the wazoo for this connection. Processors spikes are normal, programs & services running in the backgroud of a system can cause them pretty consistently. Now that being said, sometimes it can be something bad like a malware/spyware program running in the background chewing up CPU cycles. Either way, here's what I want you to try...

1st: Boot your system into safe mode w/ networking. (F8 at boot & choose accordingly)
2nd: Now that you are in safe mode, do an internet speed test & see what the speeds are. good sites to test speed are: and take a screenshot & post speeds from safe mode, then again from normal mode.
3rd: watch your CPU graph, see if it spikes as consistently as it does in normal mode.
4th: reboot into normal mode & run speedtests again, compare the two. if it's much better in safe mode then there maybe something running in the background chewing up CPU cycles or killing your bandwidth.
5th: download speccy and post back the results as a text file. speccy shows what your computer has in it & it shows processes running, etc.
6th: post back here on the forum with your results
*Note: if it's something running in the background or a potential virus/malware/spyware issue, this question may be better answered in that area of this forum. unfortunately, we are not all knowledgeable in all areas of the computer world. the folks over in that area of the forum are much better at troubleshooting issues with bogus stuff on a computer than me.

Hope this helps, take care!

A:Radeon HD 6870 vs HD 6950?

I assume your PSU is the StealthXStream II 500W (there is no OCZ SilentXStream PSU series AFAIK); you should be okay with either card.

I, however, would recommend the GTX 560Ti instead; it trades blows with the HD 6950 and runs cooler. Driver support is also better overall for NVIDIA products, and you may get it cheaper as well.

Hey guys..

i have a single 6950 that runs fine on a BF3 with everything on ultra... at about 30fps

do you think if i got another card it would be worth the peformance increase??

i have a 15-2500k not over clocked with 8GB ram

yes the 6950 scales very well in games probably around 90% increase in most games maybe a little less but you would notice a difference.

Running Install Manager and following the steps through seems to do something, though looking at device manager, it doesn't look as though the driver has been updated (it's still version
