Win 7/ie/& ssd performance

Q: Win 7/ie/& ssd performance

This is my problem's
1. With windows 7 installed, IE 9 will make my PDF's open in the same tab, therefore makeing adobe to ask if this is "ok". But whin I uninstall ie 8 in the cotrol panel and install ie 9 from a "Download" site ie; "microsoft" this does not happen, why?
2. I have researched for over two(2) week's or more to find the best "Performance" trick's, maintenance changes to "Disk" as well as Software and still my ssd hard drive does not performe as well as my "7200rpm" regular hhd, shown in performanance "5.9" over all "5.5"

So are there any tacker's, I have tryed just about every thing out there! The SSD should perform at lest on the "low"side at "7.1" but so far it has not..

Please I need some advise!!!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A bit obvious but did you set the BIOS to AHCI? Also as far as I am concerned IE9 is a clinker. I just returned to the speed and smooth performance of IE8. Ahhhh!

I am going through sql server 2005 implemetation and maintenance book.

On chapter 15 it is going through useing performance moniter. which was about long before windows 7.

Now ive got up to specifying my counters but i cannot find options to:

1. Set the inteval to one second.
2. Specify which user to run counter logs and enter the users password
3. Leave the log files and schedules tabs at their defaults - (dont even know what this means)

Any ideas how to do these?

Thanks.

Well, yet another small doubt has occured to me. Quick and simple, my system (Windows Vista Home Premium) has been sufficient and satisfactory until now with it's 1014MB of RAM, however, seemingly, like with every other computer I've used, they always just get slower over time (or perhaps the excitement wears off) and I was wondering just how much of an improvement it would really be to have 1.5GB RAM or even 2GB RAM.

Considering HP sent me this beauty with two 512MB RAM, of course, now I wonder why they did that. Hahah.

A:Bad performance. Gaming performance rated at 2. Help please!

Hi and welcome to TSG.

The first thing I notice is that your Windows installation is almost 2 years out of date, you don't have SP1 installed which was released in January 2011, so subsequently are probably missing numerous updates, patches and fixes for Windows itself.

Have you cleaned out the vents and heatsinks? Dust build up will increase heat which will in turn reduce performance.

A:Intel 520 SSD, low performance, high performance, then low again...?

The alignment looks OK if I read that picture correctly.

Intel's don't necessarily have the highest specs, but most of the specs don't mean much for most users.

If you had not benchmarked it, would you still be disappointed? Does it feel snappy, boot fast, open apps quickly, run virus scans quickly, etc?

I don't know if RAM disk might affect it.

Hi, I played the cod4 demo on my laptop with the following settings:

640x480
Textures - Normal
Texture Filtering - Trilinear
Anisotropic filtering - Full
Model Detail - Normal
Ragdoll - On
Rest - Lowest settings

I can get a good 30+fps and in close quarters I get 70+.

Can I run the full game (sp and mp) with the same settings and get the same fps? I'm particularly worried about maps with lots of grass (overgrown, epic sniper level in sp) as I heard it kills the frame rate.

Also just wondering, how come I can't set model detail to high? Do I need SM3.0 for that?

? As a good computer user, I know what kind of risks I have. Is Windows Defender OK or I need AV and a Malware tool?
? MSConfig settings will help?
? Can I disable my Intel Graphics driver to set my GPU as default for my monitor or is there another way to do it? (I don't care about power usage).
? Is there a performance post with all information needed to perform a clean install and setup a new OS for the best settings performance ?

No, if you are using something like MPC-HC or VideoLAN and do not edit videos and such.

That is a hard one, there is no universal advice for all, it depends, what windows features or various software you are using, eg I disable PrintSpooler, because I do not have a printer and so on.

You can start researching here: Black Viper Black Viper, but basically you will find out by trial and error.
You can also look at my config for sugestions about services and other stuff: [Batch] Windows 10 Tweaks.

It is OK, that means average, you could try something like 360 Total Security Essential
WD sometimes causes high CPU/RAM/HDD usage for no apparent reason, not scanning.

There are better tools like Autoruns or CCleaner's startup manager.

1)would changing the ram to 256 from 184 really make a difference or no (as i know xp loves ram)

2)what should the page file be set at...i do use this computer for slight gaming, networking, cd listening...etc

3)i plan to hook up an external hdd via the ilink port..should a page file be created on this xternal hdd?

thanks all :-D

A:low performance

lppoh Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Laptops are configured, by design, to reduce performance while running on battery power to prolong the battery life.  This is to be expected. If you look into Power Settings, you can configure the laptop to use max power while on battery -- but that will seriously reduce the time you can use it. Your best bet is to continue to have the laptop connected to AC power while gaming.

Hi all,
I'm running 8Mb patriot DDR3 1600 RAM but read somewhere that my i7920 CPU only recognises 1333. If that is so, how can I get full value from my RAM? Txs Harry

A:RAM performance

These processors support DDR3 memory with a maximum frequency of 1066 MHz. If faster DDR3 memory is used (such as 1333 MHz or 1600 MHz), it will be down-clocked to operate at 1066 MHz.

You can overclock the RAM if your motherboard will let you.

I've been going in circles since I put this rig together, trying to get my RAM to perform the way that I thought that it should. The RAM is Patriot PGS34G1600LLKA, which is suppose to be PC3-12800 1600MHz. However, as can be seen in the screenshots, it doesn't appear to be performing as it should.

I ran Memtest-86 for 6 passes without any errors, and hoping that it might reconfigure the motherboard in some fashion that would help, I set it to use it's UCC overclocking at boot, but if there is any improvement, I don't see it.

I want to be able to find the solution, and if that isn't possible, determine what is at fault...the RAM or the motherboard. All responses and insights appreciated.

EDIT: Note that in the second screenshot, that it labels the RAM as PC3-8500, rather than PC3-12800.

I also tried an encode while UCC was enabled, and had to abort pretty quickly, because the CPU maxed it's temperature and was still climbing.

Does desktop resolution affect in game performance, like i play mw2 and i set the mw2 res to 640x400... 'cos i lag, but my desktop res is 1440x900, So if i set my desktop res to lets say 800x400 when gaming, would it increase fps and reduce lag? and after finished gaming i could put it back to 1440x900?

It's got nothing to do with "bitness" (32-bit versus 64-bit). There's something running on your machine - but not your mate's - which is slowing things down.

If you go into task manager, processes tab, and sort by the CPU column, which process is responsible for the background utilisation that you're reporting?

Hi,

On my rig(should be listed) I get around 35fps on BC2. this seems low for my rig. I think it is a cpu problem. Another issue is on the level where techspot benchmarked MW2 I get 20fps lower than what they got on a res of 1280x1024 opposed to their 1680x1050. In l4d and l4d2 when a horde comes on I drop from around 120fps to 40fps. I think all this is a cpu/ram problem as they are sort of low end compared to my mid range gpu. Another reason I think this is in ANY GAME when I add x16Q antialiasing I get 0fps drop. No drop at all. Is there something I could do to improve this? Would overclocking my cpu help?
 

A:Low performance on BC2

The E7500 should not be really bottlenecking the GPU. However, you could definitely OC it and check if you get a performance boost.

Our IT department is full of XP machines. We are all running the same Dell Dimension 2350's with XP Pro SP1. All the machines work fine except for two of them. They experience severe speed drops accross the network whether it's getting a liscense for one of our programs or transferring records to a database. The only difference between these two machines and all the others is that they're running FoxPro For Windows 2.6. Has anyone ever heard of a conflict between XP and FPW? Thanks.

Just about any speed "tricks" would be with video.
If your using onboard video there isn't much you can do. Lower detail or less draw distance may help.
Make sure you have the newest video and audio drivers.
Also close or disable any background programs. Anything else running will make a game slow down. Such as active anti virus scanners or messengers.

I have just purchased a used HP Laptop and need your analyst before I start adding software. The advertised specs:

HP Beats Laptop
64 Bit Windows 8.1
1 TB Hard Drive
8 GB RAM
1.7 Gxtz AMD A8-5545M

When I seen the 1.7 Gxtz, I thought that meant fast processing speed but the little bit that I have used it, it does not seem all that fast.

Please comment

Thank You

That HP laptop has an AMD A8-5545M APU 1.70 GHz processor which has AMD Radeon HD 8510G integrated graphics.

If you purchased it used and still containing the "debris" from its previous owner, you should do a factory restore and get a fresh start with it.
Hopefully, its built-in factory restore partition is still intact or you were given a factory restore disc kit for it.

What's the exact product number(P/N) on it?

A:Performance help

1: Yes, it will run all those applications better with a quad core, but the 8400 is sufficient. Really I don't think the quad core will make that big of a difference in performance over the 8400. For the 8400's price/performance and because its a bit better for gaming I would go for that.

2: As long as it isn't value RAM it shouldn't be to bad. The speed you will want depends on what speeds the mobo you get supports.

3: You want one that has everything you will need regarding the present and future. These days ( PCI-E slot, AM2 / LGA775 socket, SATA ports, DDR2/DDR3 slots and anything else that meets your needs) which basically come with every mobo nowadays, so you want to take a looks at the chipset and FBS.

This would be a nice one.

Solid-state disks (SSD) are probably some of the most talked-about new gadgets of late.
They easily distinguish themselves from the mechanical hard drives of the Jurassic period because they have no moving parts.

The natural assumption would be that performance should favor the SSD -- BUT DOES IT?

A:VERy low gf4 performance

Some thoughts from a hardware perspective.

Take a look at your motherboard manual. There is typically in ASUS manuals a page that discusses which slot shares with other slots or embedded devices. This will help determine where bandwidth may be going.

PCI slots are all bound to each other at the hardware level. So the computer will use ACPI to allocate and assign IRQ's accordingly, but if you have hardware that is highbandwidth or high voltage use on the PCI bus, this could inhibit your performance.

If your computer has 5 PCI slots, counting from the far edge of the board. The slot closest to the AGP is PCI 1 and the furthest is PCI 5. If your comptuer has 3 PCI slots, all slots are bound to embedded devices, running high speed AGP card and having any card plugged into on of the 3 PCI slots will not help. Upgrading the board and the processor would be recommended for power gaming.

Typically Slots 1 and 5 are bound to the AGP slot. Sometimes Slot 1/2 and 5 or 1 and 4/5 are bound to the AGP.

If you have other cards in those slots you may want to move them or pull them and see if your FPS increases.

Be careful though, if you are running Windows XP, pulling the NIC card will result in you having to re-authorize the OS when you reinsert the card into a different slot.

The only other way to guarantee better performance is to re-install the OS in Standard PC HAL (Hit F5 at time of first boot from CD-ROM) and then assign your IRQ's in the BIOS of the MOBO so that no devices share with each other and each have their own IRQ and disable all the ports and embedded devices you don't use. Since ACPI mode in Win XP ignores BIOS IRQ assignments.

Good luck.

A:Help with usb performance

USB Performance will vary considerably with different devices on different systems. Here's a couple of things you should check:

1 - Is the cable a USB 2.0 compliant cable?
2 - Check BIOS settings to ensure that 'Hi Speed/USB 2.0) is enabled.

Let us know if either of those things corrects your problem.

Your motherboard is USB 2.0 compliant, it should work fine and may simply be set to slow speed in your BIOS.

Sounds like it could be a monitor refresh rate problem.
What frequency is your monitor running at? With XP and 2000 there are known issues with games running frames per second locked to the monitor refresh rate. I'm not sure if this is now fixed in some way by the latest Detonator drivers from Nvidia as I now have an ATI card and haven't read much about Detonators lately.

Ok, as you can see from the hardware my computer has (see the thing beside my profile name) I should be able to run any modern game maxed out, or so I should think so because I surpass the recommended requirements by a long shot. However, in Crysis I can barely run on High and on Fallout 3 I also have been having lag problems in the DLC. This also happens in Empire Total War, I have to run it on high. I don't understand what's going on. I thought it could be my graphics card because I had problems updating the drivers via CCC, but I removed CCC and got Driver Robot which says I'm fully updated. What is going on? Could this be because I run my games on 1400*900 resolution? I suspect Vista as a primary culprit in this mess, but I'm not sure.

Hi guys my name is Robert. Here is the problem. I have a game called pillars of eternity. I opened the game and I was getting around 11-15fps!.

I tried updating my drivers: (gpu,chipset,usb,sound, etc) Nothing helped.

I was fiddling around with catalyst control centre the default software that comes with amd drivers. And I did something in there and my fps shot up from 11-15 to 70-120. ! Needless to say I was stoked.

However I made the foolish mistake of resetting the settings. Now my fps is back down to 11-15 and I have tried everything it get it back up. I took a screenshot of my 3d application settings when I was getting good fps. I re entered those and my fps is still at 11-15! I honestly dnt know what to do to fix this as I have tried all the settings in ccc and I cant get my fps back up

Another thread in one of the TSG forums gave me the idea for this Other than virus spyware scans and adding more memory what have you found to increase system performance on windows and XP systems I have found a couple of things to provide a temporary fix but unfortunately I don t know enough about the OSs to tell you why these fixes work Some of the things that have worked for me Get rid of seldom used programs This is easy enough to do through the quot add remove programs quot menu Defrag clean out temp files and do just about everything else you find in Start - gt Programs or All Programs - gt Accessories - gt System tools Reset some of the services on your machine to a startup type of quot manual quot rather than Automatic Do this by going to Start - gt Run - gt services msc Be carefull what you change Google it first You can reset some of the TSRs by going to the program itself and setting some flags in the application rather than in serices msc A couple of examples are Outlook and Messenger You can reset both of these applications to not start automatically for a barely noticable gain in PC Performance performance Before making changes you PC Performance are unsure of be sure to google or post to the forum for advice Also it s always a good idea to have a current backup of your system state as well as any data you have on your HD Please reply to this thread with other tips and tricks you ve found nbsp

Hello All!

I think the above caption says quite a lot....I have a machine that used to perform off the charts as far as I was concerned....But then I loaded on Windows XP Service Pack 2....Internet Explorer 7.0....Windows Media Player 11 and the Vista Transformation Pack Ver. 7.0....Since I loaded up all these things yesterday...My PC takes about 4 1/2 Minutes to Boot UP!!! I work in a fast paced environment so I surely cannot afford to have this last much longer....But I would love to keep the eye-candy .....I have a 120 GB HDD with nothing much on it....a little more than 24 GB Used....I'm running Norton Anti-Virus 2007 and MSN & Yahoo Messengers.....That's about it that's boots up for my programs....Is there anything I can do to beef up the performance?

Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

I have a GTX 780 ti and from most of the things I hear "there's nothing out there such high end cards cannot run".
Sadly not true for me, I bought a EVGA gtx 780 ti superclocked and I've been playing many games.
Skyrim: Very High textures with an ENB and ugridstoload is set to 7, I constantly get 0.2 second freezes when I look around a lot, running from area to area begins to lag a bit because cells are being loaded.
Assassin's creed IV: I can't even play on medium settings unless I turn off v-sync and set to adaptive in nvidia control panel.
BF4: Ultra settings, 140% resolution scale, 70+ fps.
Total War rome II: very-high/ultra settings, drops to like 30fps when I look at armies.

Am I doing something wrong here?
Also did I just screw myself over when the 800 series is about to come out?

A:Is this the best gpu performance?

Honestly, Windows is nice. Things work well. Sometimes (it doesn't happen to me - again, stressing being honest that's all) things are not so good and it's something you will have an epiphany about down the road.

All I'm saying is that it isn't easy if at times to get a system perfect. You gotta know everything about everything to make it happen. Lesser mortals can often achieve success too.

That's my friendly message of the day. Meant in kindness.

No, I do not follow any religion. lol (Comedy is not my best face.)

A:Please Help-Performance is Bad

Hello -

I don't see anything in those logs which suggest malware is the cause of the performance issues.


Quote:




==== Disk Partitions =========================

C: is FIXED (NTFS) - 52 GiB total, 4.317 GiB free.




Windows XP performs better with 15% free space on the disk. From the attach.txt it would appear you're well below that threshold. I'd suggest moving some data, such as videos or pictures if applicable, to another storage medium, such as CD-R/DVD-R, or external USB hard drive. Uninstall any unused applications, if you're certain of them.

MS Office 2007 seems more resource hungry than it's predecessors. I can verify this, as I've just recently installed it.

Additionally,

If your system seems sluggish, it could be due to low RAM:


Quote:




511.124




These numbers indicate total physical/total available memory. Windows XP will run fine with 512, but as more applications get installed and updated, 512 becomes the minimum needed. 1GB RAM is better, or whatever maximum your machine's motherboard will support.

Please read the following article: http://www.techsupportforum.com/f174...ow-247567.html

You can visit Crucial where you can either input your model number or download a small application that will tell you exactly the type of RAM you need, and how much your motherboard will support.

====================

Other items you can take care of...

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start ->Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs)

Kaspersky Online Scanner

It's outdated at this time, and is only taking up space.

My Way Search Assistant

Considers as spyware,uninstall it. See this link:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/unin...Assistant.html

Outdated Java

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs)


Java(TM) 6 Update 4
Java(TM) 6 Update 5

These are all outdated, and security risks by having them installed still. Unfortunately, Java does not uninstall these older versions when you update, nor tell you that you should. Java(TM) 6 Update 13 can be updated from the Java control panel Start > Control Panel (Classic View) > Java (looks like a coffee cup) > Update Tab > Update Now. An update should begin; follow the prompts.

Going forward, Java will overwrite existing installs, so removing older versions should not be required after this.

Once the install is complete....

Go into the Control Panel and double-click the Java Icon. (looks like a coffee cup)On the General tab, under Temporary Internet Files, click the Settings button.
Next, click on the Delete Files button
There are two options in the window to clear the cache - Leave BOTH CheckedApplications and Applets
Trace and Log Files

Click OK on Delete Temporary Files Window
Note: This deletes ALL the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the CACHE.
Click OK to leave the Temporary Files Window
Click OK to leave the Java Control Panel.


AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5

Outdated, unsupported. Using system resources. I'd suggest uninstalling it, and replacing it with an on-demand scanner such as Malwarebytes' Antimalware.

Ad-Aware 2007

A bit resource hungry, effective, but also outdated. Update to most current version, or uninstall. I would suggest an uninstall to see about system performance.

In regards to getting the best performance from ram, would it be better to install 2 pieces of 512MB DDR 3200 or a single stick 1GB DDR 3200? Why?

Thanks in advance,
Timone
 

A:Ram Performance

Generally two smaller sticks are better for performance then one large one. The biggest reason, and only if your motherboard supports it, is something called Dual Channel. With Dual Channel two identical sticks are treated as a single 128 bit path instead of a 64 bit path. Another reason is latencies, usually with larger capacity modules the latency increases. So for example you may get a 256MB stick with CL2 and a 1GB stick with CL3, with 3 being longer then 2.

Na sounds like your just not getting enough power to the hub. Each of your USB 3.0 ports supply 500m/amps your 4 port hub is splitting that if you can get a power adapter it will most likely work. I personal use Anker 4 port hub with no issues.

This is my guess for the fault you say:
1. Check for malware/virus/worm/adware. This is one of the big problems.
2. Check for CPU/GPU is been overheated. Overheated CPU/GPU may cause the computer to run slow and laggy.
3. Free space in the HDD/SSD (Hard Disk Drives/Soild State Drive). Delete all your junk files, uninstall all the the program that you don't use every week/day.
4. Motherboard problems.

2)My Windows Experience Index score is always low because of "gaming graphics" score which is 3.2 (lowest), anyway to boost the score to become high (more than 5.0) without changing my video card (I am still thinking to change or not)?

A:32 bit vs 64 bit performance with same RAM

With 64 bit. Windows alone will occupy around 3GB of RAM so that will leave 1GB available for anything else. Any application that you run will first be loaded into RAM then run. So the answer is 8GB would be ideal.I would not worry about the WEI if you are not playing any game

A:Need more performance!

You could upgrade your graphics card as a start.
Here you can compare some common graphics cards, you probably will need an agp graphics card, not the newer pci-e cards.
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/2004-27gpu2_2.html

A faster cpu and faster ram(if yours is sdram, not ddr) would also help, but would likely require you to buy a new motherbaord as well.

After I changed my HD to a much faster one that I actually observed, but the rating of the PC remained the same showing that the HD was still holding back the PC. The rating of the HD had not changed after the installation of the faster HD.
Any explanation?
Thanks,

I just really wanted know if there is anyone with a 7900 varient single or in SLI that can post their performance test results from F.E.A.R at max settings with the highest resolution possible.

I just really want to see how much my other componants are bottlenecking my 8800GTX. And if there is much of a differnce between a 7900 series card/s and the performance I am getting.

Please list what type of CPU and such you are using also

The attached pics shows my performance at 1680x1050 with everything else maxed out.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:F.E.A.R Performance ?

That's pretty good Jim!
If I wasnt on my Laptop I would load up F.E.A.R and show you my test results

Is there a soft or something that could show me what's the difference of performance for a system with a GeForce 8600GT Bliss , 256 MB and with a 8800 GT , 512MB?

A:GPU performance

You would get at least double the performance with a 8800GT compared to a 8600GT.

Have a look at this chart for some detailed info.

A:My RAM Performance

You have too many things loaded on startup. Type "msconfig" in start menu and click it. Disable what is not needed on startup in that.

Hi all,

I am a bit of a noob and I am looking for some help with understanding whether or not I have my system configured for optimal performance of my SSD drive. The performance I am currently getting seems quite low.

Below are what I understand to be the relevant components involved:

OS: Windows x64 Ultimate SP1
Drive: Corsair Force 3
MoBo: ASUS P6TD DELUXE
Sata Controller: SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express SATA Controller Card (PEXSAT32)

I have attached a screenshot of the performance I am getting. I am not convinced that the the SataIII controller is providing the throughput that is to be expected, but I am not sure how to evaluate its performance.

Any thoughts/suggestions would be highly appreciated

A:SSD Performance

It's doing twice as good as mine I do have lots of stuff running but my score was 200 and your doing double than that.

Hi I was wondering if computer performance varies through the use of different operating systems? For example, will my computer run faster on XP home, or 7? Using the same hardware, drivers, settings, etc. Or does it depend on other factors, or no significant differences at all? Or simply, what's the deal with this?

Thank you.

A:Computer performance using different OS's

The short answer is, it depends. An application that runs on Windows XP should run just the same on Windows 7. The determining factor for speed largely has to do with hardware. Since there are an infinite number of combinations of hardware, your question is sort of null. Windows 7 deals with file systems, memory, and hardware differently than Win XP, but different does not necessarily mean faster.

My stepdaughter has a one-year-old Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista and the thing is painfully slow I did a little research before posting this Her computer sat for several months with a discharged battery I Performance Poor bought a new charger got the thing running loaded the upgrades I Poor Performance did what I could to reduce the processes in the tray so that the system is not being asked to do any more than reasonable menial tasks Granted it only has meg RAM but this is the minimum requirement It's the quot Basic User Poor Performance quot version of Vista the machine was bought a couple of years ago and I was a little surprised it didn't have one gig But I'm sure that Toshiba didn't intend for the machine to be this slow Let's say Internet Explorer version is running and you click on anything else it just sits there for several minutes before displaying a hollow screen which takes more minutes to fill in It says this is a dual core Pentium running at a little under MHz I ran the quot System Resources quot or something utility that's available from the task monitor something new not in XP which shows the system RAM to be around utilized It seems like it's thrashing but why I am new with Vista but comparing this system to my wife's five or six-year-old Compaq running XP with a similar clock speed the same amount of RAM and a single core processor she can run circles around her daughter Is this typical I feel like the answer's going to be a resounding quot put some memory in the thing quot and I will if this will solve the problem I can't help wondering how XP would run on this same box but that ain't gonna happen Any suggestions will be appreciated Thanks P

Vista works better with more then 2Gigs of RAM, so I would upgrade. 512Megs was fine a decade ago, but not any more.

A:Which OS would have the best performance on this computer?

Should I install XP or should I try to further optimize Windows 7 to run better on this computer? If so how?

I would suggest win 7 on a ssd, though someone with more knowledge would have to confirm the upgrade to that system.
