Recommend me a chair...

Q: Recommend me a chair...

This thread will probably get moved, but I wasn't sure where this should go. I am looking for a better chair, I'll keep the specifics of my chair secret...But I want a chair that allows me to slouch with back support. But I don't want to spend 250$. I'm thinking 150$ tops. I want to be able to lean back and read my book.

Now my chair leans back, but not enough and I'm always finding myself slouching more than the chair permits and it means my back makes an unsupported bridge between the bottom and the back of the chair. My chair only has a small mid section support on the back. I want full support and a good lean to it. Maybe what I want isn't possible, but.........


Any recommendations?

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.)

Hey there,

I was curious what you all use for a gaming pc chair ! I have lower back problems so a good chair is critical for me. My budget would have to be around $200 Canadian. I've tried looking on the web but it's mostly the $600-$1000 dollar chairs that pop up...

By turning off I assume you mean It turns off completely.
It could possibly be your battery. have you tried removing it and putting it back in? Also you can try pushing it in with your hand as you try to turn it on.

A:Can chair vibration damage laptop speakers/hardware in this situation?

Many reasons why speakers bust

It can also be the way he moved it loosened something up or even caused a small rip in the speaker only way to know for sure is have it looked at if it is under warranty you should get it checked out

I am asking a simple question i'm gonna change my CPU (AMD Athlon X2 5000+), because it's almost dead and i need some suggestions.My motherboard is Albatron KM61S-AM2, and i need CPU for AM2 slot.Some friends recommended me "AMD Phenom II X4 940" - is it good ?
Actually i don't have a lot of money so to be in the likes of max 100 $.
I was pretty happy with my CPU(Athlon 5000+) for gaming so i need something in that region.But also i have one more question if i buy "AMD Phenom II X4 940", will i be in need to change Motherboard, RAM, or GPU(Nvidia GeForce 9800GT), in other words is there gonna be a bottleneck effect ?
Thanks in advance.
PS:Sorry if my English is bad, it's not my native one
 

A:What CPU will u recommend ?

What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.

I am planning a new build (already bought mobo, cpu, ram, and dvd drive), and I am looking for a nice PSU. I havent decided on a graphics card yet, but its likely that i will get either an 8800gt or an 9800gtx (they ususally want ~300-450W)

Anyways, most PSU's I have seen have around 8 molex cables. I dont need 8 molex cables, I dont even really need one (maybe certain case fans btw). My Hard Drive will be SATA, my DVD drive is SATA, so I dont want to waste space and drown in cables with extra molex's. I am looking for something at 600W (nice and safe, all hardware should be fine with this), and not to many molex connectors.

Suggestions? (Not buying from Newegg, since I dont live in the US)

Hi, i'm looking to buy a new CPU but not sure which one would be best for my computer I currently have an AMD Anthlon(tm) XP 1800+ 1533 MHz. I use my computer for graphic and web design work mainly, so I use adobe packages quite alot, I also like to create music using programs such as cubase.

My mainboard is a SOLTEK 75FRV and OS is Windows XP service pack 3.

I hope that info helps, i'm pretty clueless on what would be the best CPU for my needs!

Thanks anyone!
 

A:Can someone recommend a CPU

From the MB and CPU specs, I would assume the PC is at least 5 years old?

It is possible to upgrade the CPU a bit, but finding Athlon XP CPUs is getting fairly difficult and expensive. Also, upgrading any other part in such an old system would be a waste of money since you won't be able to reuse it in a future system later on.

Your money would be better used if you saved a bit for a completely new PC with up to date parts. There are plenty of fairly decent PCs on the market these days for under $500 which would perform many times better.

7 Port USB 2.0 480Mps Hi-Speed HUB Laptop Notebook NEW on eBay (end time 27-Nov-09 20:29:35 GMT)

it states ''USB 2.0'' all over it, but it does not come with an additional power adapter...this means whenever you plug in more than 2 devices, the USB block defaults all connections to ''USB 1.0''
so, if your buying a 4 port hub you should be ok, if buying a hub with more connections make sure it comes with an adaptor..

A:Can You Recommend Please....

You need to convert them to .wav files.A free program that will convert, and also allow you to edit music files, is AudacityCDex is a free CD ripper, and will convert, back and forth, between .mp3, and .wavWith Audacity, you'll need to make copies of your files, before converting, unless you don't mind the originals being converted.CDex will batch convert, leave the originals intact, and would probably be the easiest to set up, and use...

After using bundled nero package with moderate success I uninstalled all of it when my computer became very sluggish.After doing this my computer came back up to par.
All I want is a straight forward music library that I can download from with out all the documentation and that is compatible to the lightning lll.I've heard of musicmatch,jukebox 8.0, etc.I am new to all of this and just want "one program" that I can use without all of the incompatibility issues that arise. I tried some programs while nero was installed and had these problems.I just want a good music archive program that I can use even if I have to pay for. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thanx

Nero isn't an archiving program, it's just a burner application. I have no idea what a lightning III is or what it pertains to in this situation. MusicMatch is used for cateloging and playing your MP3 music library and does a pretty good job of it. There are other applications like WinAmp and many..many others. As far as downloading, are you referring to the file sharing services like Kazaa and the now defunct Napster?

Hey guys, i got a tall order for you guys.

i was wondering if it would be advisable to have 2 AV's, 2 Anti Spyware/Malware, and 2 Fire walls? Recently i had a glitch in the system, some Backdoor virus is trying to get in.
Bitdefender is blocking it left and right so im safe. Am i over reacting? or should i amp up my security? So i considered running 2 of each.

heres what i considered

Main AV: Bitdefender 2nd AV: Either MSE, Avast or Avira

Main Anti spyware/malware: MalwareBytes 2nd Anti: Superantispyware or any other

Main Firewall: windows7 firewall control 2nd wall: pctools firewall or anyother

what do you guys think? i mostly use my puter for school, games, and im constantly downloading new software.

Check out my specs and let me know what you think.

Thanks in advanced.

A:Do You Recommend it?

While running 2 AV's is possible, it's definitely not advisable. There's nothing at all wrong with running a virus scan with more than one anti-virus program. Because it's just a scan - it starts, it scans, and then it's done. Real time monitoring, which is installed with most anti-virus programs is constantly running and scanning files downloaded to your machine. Running two or more real time anti-virus monitors at the same time is very likely to cause a conflict which could result in any number of error messages or failures. The most advisable thing to do would to be to find a good, reliable anti-virus program that you trust, and make sure it's always updated with the latest definitions.

Same for anti-spyware programs, as long as there isn't two real time monitoring engines trying to do the same thing at once, you should be fine.

The same goes for firewalls, however, I just wouldn't recommend running two software based firewalls at the same time because, as with AV programs, they monitor in real time, and two programs trying to do the same thing at once can and usually will cause problems. However, if you have a hardware based firewall, such as one built into a router, there would be no problem running a software and a hardware based firewall.

As for your case, if you believe BitDefender is doing it's job, I would leave it as your anti-virus, and use MalwareBytes and run a periodic scan to check for spyware, and either use the default Windows Firewall, or another 3rd party firewall and all should be fine. But remember, the best security is purely common sense while browsing

Sorry for the long winded reply, too much time on my hands lol. Hope I helped

As per title, I've been using ASUS motherboards for last 11 years and I must say they are worth every penny. First one was P4P800-Deluxe which lasted from 2001 to 2007 and second one is P5E3 which I'm using since 2007 till now.

I guess its time to jump on bandwagon and upgrade my system. I'm again very much leaning towards getting ASUS again, i.e. P8P67

I was wondering if I should try some other brands like Gigabyte or MSI. I know ASrock is sister company of ASUS so its like getting same motherboard for less money. What will you my fellow PC geeks will advise to go for?

I almost forgot to mention, I'll be getting Core i7 2600k very soon so motherboard has to be 1155 socket.

A:Recommend me new MB

All you can expect to hear is someone's personal experience with a brand, such as you just stated yourself for Asus. "I've owned leventy-leven brand X motherboards and never had a problem".

You can then go immediately to Google and find all kinds of horror stories about that particular brand.

Anecdotes are just that and mean little since the horror stories encompass all brands and you will play hell finding any authoritative evidence--just as it is for hard drives.

I've owned Intel, Dell, Gigabyte, and several Asus motherboards. The only one that ever failed was an Asus.

Signifying nothing. It's just another anecdote.

Look for the features you need and buy from a dealer you trust.

Make some wild-ass guesses and questionable assumptions about supposed build quality and quality control.

Hope it doesn't break.

Hope even harder that you never need to deal with customer support.

PC Diagnostic software? Something that looks for potential problems and can fix them but still giving the user control over what gets repaired?

I have used Norton WinDoctor for years but recently it repaired a registry entry and caused big time problems. I had to use System Restore to back up to the previous backup. Ever since I have been reluctant to let it clean much up with out eyeballing the change first. I have also used Norton CleanSweep for a long time but it will not always remove software that it says it does.

I recently tried PC BugDoctor. It finds a lot more errors than WinDoctor does but their licensing fee is quite high, so I've never bought it. And it does not say what it's going to repair so I have never had it try.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I don't think this is a PSU issue, you don't have many components and the GT 520 is a low power card (Nvidia's website recommends a 300W power supply).

I'd buy the E6600 and then plan to purchase a new video card and operating system.

APC Smart-UPS 1500VA LCD 120V should be more than sufficient. Many are cheaper but you gets what you pay for. Some of the cheaper ones are nothing but a surge supressor.

Not too long ago on here I promised I d be upgrading this old laptop? recommend a Win machine pretty soon I think it s about time to do it and I m looking to replace this old desktop with a nice laptop I ve looked mainly at Thinkpads now made by Lenovo Sonys and Toshibas The main things I want are - pretty big screen hopefully quot or more widescreen slightly preferred but doesn t matter - good video chip probably MB dedicated - good reliability recommend a laptop? and support - looks cool it just has to Size and weight aren t the most important thing but I would prefer a real laptop to one of the pounder quasi-laptops Any thoughts or what I should look for in particular I haven t bought a computer in awhile so I don t know quite the specs to shoot for I want to go pretty high end but not over the top I m thinking GB dual layer DVD burner somewhere around - GB hard drive depending on the options haven t scoped them out I m not a big fan of companies that will keep me on hold for an hour and then give me the runaround Anybody know how video chips work in a laptop I know they used to always be soldered in but I see some models have upgradeable video Are the ones with the fancy video chips usually upgradeable or does it depend I know the ones with integrated Intel are soldered in and probably not upgradeable The word PCI Express has come up Does that thing have the equivalent of AGP or whatever I know you can t just stick a video card in a normal expansion slot and get anything worth watching Does bits matter in the main CPU that is Or any of that other mumbo jumbo like dual core I tend to think it s overrated since most computers these days are fast enough for most things I d need to do -- state of the art D basically just needs a good video card Video editing or something might be a little faster with a faster CPU but otherwise I doubt I d generally notice it Serial ATA RPM I think going for one or both of those two could speed things up a little Not sure how common either is but definitely seen them come up a lot Half-decent sound in the internal speakers would be nice but as long as I can make it out I can probably live with it Any other suggestions welcome I don t know what the current coolest wireless standard is There were a few competing last I checked I guess Bluetooth would probably make sense as well no Screen update speed Does resolution matter a lot Can it be too high In old versions of Windows that makes a lot of things too small but I assume it s better now Alright I m just tossing things out there Any advice you have is appreciated I also looked at Dell and MPC but probably won t go in those directions And I am curious about compact desktop models as well -- I doubt that s what I ll get right now but I haven t seen as many cool ones as I expected to Apple has pulled that off a lot better than the PC world has I think Thanks for any input p s I was also looking at a digital camera to go with it I like the Canons but also looked at an HP and a Casio which looked OK I think I ll save that for another time though p p s Some of these laptops come with features I consider frivolous for my needs like fingerprint scanners built-in webcams and infrared ports If anyone has any thoughts on those though I welcome them nbsp

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum or not, but I'm looking for a recommendation of a good DVD burner. I have an HP 5100 series laptop with only a DVD/CD-RW Drive. I want to be able to create DVD Slideshows, though. I can buy a portable or external DVD burner, right? I was just looking on ebay, and I'm overwhelmed because I don't know which is best.

So, can anyone give me a good recommendation? TIA!

Within the next few weeks, I will likely be rebuilding my grandparents computer (since their P4 with 512mb RAM is no longer up to the job)

Anyways, I am aiming for a E5200 or E5300 Processor, with integrated graphics. This computer has no need for power, which is why I am opting for integrated graphics and a mid-range cpu

Any good recommendations?
 

A:Recommend a motherboard

I think G45 boards with Intel X4500HD graphics that fit DDR2 800 memory, take at least 4GB RAM but can start with less depending on the OS. That with E5200 or E5300 would give you a nice range of upgradability in the future if / when that becomes necessary. X4500HD onboard graphics even plays Blu-ray movies on Vista (but not XP though) in case their needs change a lil bit in 2-3 years. If something else we don't know of at this point came up down the line, then you could add a dedicated video card.

For instance, this also takes a wide range of processor FBSs, You start with E5200 (800MHz)which is at the buttom of it, but it can be upgraded to Quad Core (1333MHz) down the line when Quad Cores are like 80 dollars, in addition to memory being able to go up to 16GB (which you will never need hopefully!) It also has 6 USB on the back. And has a good customer satisfaction rating.

Personally, I feel like I know exactly what you are talkin about. Folks who have basic computing needs. If you don't need G45, you could go with G31 etc. But if things like Bluray became the 'standard' in a few years, then maybe, boooh! LOL! I will have to add a video card then (still not a big deal though). In addition to that G31 may limit the upgradability of RAM depending on what you choose. I'd probably go with A GOOD mobo with expandability and start with the low end components that the mobo takes, so that it can be used for several years. If your grandparents ONLY use the computer for Office and Internet Explorer, a webcam/Skype, and transfering pitures/ maybe burning them to CDs, then G31 should be good enough, for instance, this (though FBS 800MHz is not listed, the manufactuere's page says the mobo supports it.). Anyway, if you go with a G31, I recommend that you make sure the board has a PCIe x16 slot in case a video card has to be added in the near future...

Can anyone recommend a free firewall that I can use on WinXP.

I currently have Zone Alarm free but fed up with a recent pop up screen tellling me ZA is initializing etc..

I dont want anything too complicated. I need it to run alongsided AVAST antivirus.

Thanks for your time.

A:recommend a firewall?

You could simply use Windows Firewall and focus on preventing malware from getting on your computer.

If you want to add some simple outbound protection you could use Sunbelt Personal Firewall or PC Tools Firewall Plus.

And if you want full security at the cost of more complexity there's Online Armor, Comodo Internet Security with the antivirus disabled and Outpost Firewall free.

Alas, I can't access the control panel to do this the normal way because IT have disabled it - and I've already asked them to do it and, naturally, they're busy!

I've been looking at Cards for the past 2 months trying to decide which 1 to buy,at 1st it was a 8800 gt over-clocked,but now I'm tempted by the GTX 260?

A:Recommend a Card

Well, it really depends on what your needs are. I actually have an overclocked Zotac 8800GT AMP! edition card and I love it. However I am about to be upgrading to an EVGA 9800GTX+ very soon. This 8800 is just fine for most games but I want a bit more performance in Hellgate:London with settings maxed at 1600x1200 and this card just can't cut it. If you really need a nice new card, I'd reccomend the 9800GTX+ or a GTX260. Those are the new big boys on campus. The 8800 is simply older technology.

This is a decent board and performs almost good as my 590sli (which doesn't have video). It has onboard video, 4 ram slots, 2 ide + floppy, 4 sata, etc. I've got that in a second pc and works great.

I'm not sure which other boards you can look at, since to me it doesn't matter if it has onboard or not, I usually start with the chipset and go from there.
This one has a 570 chipset which should perform well.

What Antivirus would you recommend out of these 2? Avast free or Trend Micro Maximum Security? I'm trying to not use windows defender its not really good.. 

A:What antivirus out of these would you recommend?

Both of those have good reputations, though both will tend to use more system resources than Windows Defender does. The installers for both of those will handle the issues related with disabling Defender as part of the install process, so it's really a case of choose the one that has the best price for the features included. Note that there are two different Windows Defender products. With older OSes, Defender was only an anti-spyware package, not an Anti-Virus. With the current OS, Windows Defender has the functionality of Microsoft Security Essentials rolled in, so acts against both spyware and malware. All my machines are runnign Windows 10, and I use Windows Defender on them without adding a third party package.

First of all, you can run Windows  7 on a Mac book. With some limitations.Apple support provides information on how to do it.See here:Boot Camp: System requirements for Microsoft Windows QuoteThe keyboard and mouse or trackpad that came with your Mac (If they aren?t available, use a USB keyboard and mouse)A minimum of 2 GB of RAM, 30 GB of free disk space are recommended if you are installing Windows for the first time, or 40 GB of free disk space if you are upgrading from a previous version of WindowsAn authentic Microsoft Windows full install disc or ISO fileCurrent Apple PCs will also run Windows 8.1, which you can girt free for awhile. My recommendation is to use Windows 8.1 and see if you like it and forget windows 7.As to which Mac, I do not fell qualified to say. Maybe somebody else.

I've finally had enough of Norton, and I'm uninstalling it.

I have used Norton Personal Firewall and Norton Antivirus for a few years now, so I'm pretty used to how it works.
What does everyone recommend I switch to?

I want a very comprehensive firewall, as internet security is my biggest concern.
The things I liked about Norton were:
-Never had pop-ups or ads
-Could just leave it alone and didn't have to mess with settings very much
-updated pretty simply
-Kept me completely safe and virus free for about 3 years

I basically just want an AV and firewall that I can install and then forget about...... don't want to be messing with settings all the time and updating etc.
If there are any free programs, so much the better, but I'm happy to pay.

So anyway.... whats everybody using?..............
