Replacement Computer

Q: Replacement Computer

OK I got a new Lenovo Yoga 900 80MK0010US model. They replaced it and the replacement has issues so they are willing to replace with model 80UE003AUS.

Since I'm not a tech person and this was just a gift from someone who bought me the laptop.
I am told replacement is better than what I have.

Here is differences that I see on spec sheets:
Processor from I7-6500U (2C, 2.5/3.1GHz, 4MB, 1600 MHz) To I7-6560U (2C, 2.2/3.2GHz, 4MB, 1866MHZ)

Storage from 512GB SATA SSD To 512GB PCIe SSD.

Nothing else different.

While my sons do gaming, we just use windows based products and quickbooks. Im sure its fine just want to make sure it is better

Preferred Solution: Replacement Computer

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.)

It does appear the new notebook is nicer - at least on paper. The normal CPU speed is a bit slower, but when tasked, it will boost to a higher "turbo" speed - though .1GHz is not likely to be noticeable. The RAM is faster though not sure that will be noticeable either. Generally more RAM gives a bigger bang than faster RAM. PCIe SSDs do tend to offer faster performance than SATA SSDs. But SATA SSDs are already extremely fast - especially compared to even the fastest hard drives. So again, not sure you would notice the differences. Altogether, however, on some tasks, there may be a noticeable performance gain. But still, whoever told you the replacement is better was telling the truth.

A:Computer slow after power supply replacement...

You would have to ask them for a list of that which they did.

What brand, model, model # PC, or same information for the motherboard?

Computer specs would be helpful.

Which ;power supply was it: brand, model, model #, wattage? Same for now?

If you aren't happy, take it back & have them install a new power supply and politely insist that they demonstrate it to you before you accept it back.

Start the computer, note time from start to desktop appearance or log in screen appearance.

Start the computer in safe mode & do the same.

To start in safe mode, start > run
type: msconfig
boot.ini tab
put a check in "safe book"
exit without restarting
Shut down.
Turn on.

it is going to be hard without being able to compare the old drive next to the new drive to make sure it is going to be physically compatible. My Dell can use a few different drives yst they will not physically be the same and therefore even though they fit in the drive bay there is no way of securing them. There fore using what Dell has to offer is MY only option.

You may be better suited for a different drive though. I would make sure that you have a return policy if it doesnt work with what you buy.

Realistically it could be anything.
If the CPU has cooked too many times it may indeed have failed, if that is the case it could have taken anything else with it.

The motherboard may be heat damaged, the possibilities are endless.

Hey All,

My Old Cpu is Starting to Slow Down, Its Main Ghz is Starting to Drop.

Its a 2.4 Ghz Dual Core Celeron E3200.

Now I've Just Shopped Around and i've Found a Replacement,

Intel Core 2 Duo E7600, S775, Wolfdale 45nm, 3.06 GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 3MB Cache, 11.5x Ratio, 65W

My Question is, Will this be worth the ?90?

And i Do a Lot of Gaming and Work. So what do you guys think? Any reviews?

A:CPU Replacement

Hi i would suggest you to get a Quad Core (Core2Quad) instead if you can increase your budget a bit coz as you've mentioned that you do gaming and as new games taking advantage of 4 cores so it would be nice though E7600 is a good processor and you will see quiet much improvements compare to Celeron

A friend of mine called to say that their computer was shutting down randomly and the computer was running really loud. I stopped by and took the cover off and noticed it was the CPU fan. I just wrote down the model number of the PC and didn't measure the fan, assuming I would be able to find it online. Maybe it's there, but I'm not smart enought to see it. The computer is a Compaq Presario SR5233WM (GN578AA). Below are the specs I found on Compaq's site but I'm still not sure of the size of the fan and really hate to have to stop by again to measure the fan. Can any of you tell what size of fan it's using? Thanks.

My computer has been making a humming sound after it has been on a while. I took off the sides and blew out the dust, and alot came out of the fans. I noticed that one of the fans blades did not turn freely when I blew air on it. Hooked up the power cable and turned it on and the fan did not turn. Once and awhile it tried to turn but then would stop again. The fan is mounted on the motherboard and has ABIT printed on it. It is the smaller of the two fans mounted on the motherboard. How difficult is it to replace and what is it called? Is it the motherboard fan? Thanks for any advice.

Hi, first of all, I am not really a tech guy and I dont know anything about hardwares so that is why I am posting here.

I have a Toshiba A25-S207 laptop running windows xp. The hard drive crashed a while ago, and i need to buy a new one. The hard drive that was in is : 40GB* hard disk drive, Enhanced IDE (ATA-5), 4200rpm, 9.7mm height, 0.2lbs, Service Removable. Can anybody tell what can i replace it with? And also can i use the Recovery DVD that comes with the laptop to install the drivers and the OS?

Help is appreciated.

A:Possible HDD Replacement

The hard disk must be a Parallel ATA (aka PATA or IDE) of just about any one of that type that is available.

ATA 100 Drives

ATA 133 drives

Short education on the use of the term "IDE": Both the old 40-pin IDE drives and the newer Serial ATA drives are IDE devices; but, people generally mis-apply the term "IDE" as distinguishing the older 40-pin drives as IDE.

I don't know where this thread belongs, or even if it's relevant to tsg, but here goes: A friend has a Dell XP desktop. She lost her original installation discs, and called Dell for a replacement. They sent her a new XP Home CD, and charged her $180. The same as if she had never owned a Dell PC, and had gone out and bought an XP CD for full retail price. It doesn't sound right to me. I thought that you would pay for some kind of service charge if your installation CD got lost or damaged. Did Dell make a mistake? Is this normal business procedure?

Your eMachine T2984 is a high failure rate motherboard... well in excess of 60% after two years... Your problem could easily be caused by the eMachine motherboard failure. Your hard drive that came in the eMachines is likely good, as is the cpu, cpu fan, modem, and optical drive. But the motherboard and power supply are of such high failure rate that you will need to test them thoroughly with a power supply tester... and trying your hard drive and other components in another board.

You can use any brand you like,just try to match the RPM's of the old fan.. Some fans will have a 3 wire configuration,not to worry the 3rd wire is for a sensor. Some pc's have a sensor some don't,it will still work the same,just match your pin configuration or molex setup on the mobo..

This is not a good idea. You will run into all kinds of problems - malware being the least concern. Drivers and activation will be your main problems. I assume your current OS is an OEM system.

A fresh system is always the way to go. And don't be afraid of Windows 8.1. It is a nice system. With a couple of days of training you will love it - fast, reliable and lots of nice features.

A:Replacement for Norton 360?

You ask a common question for which you will receive varying opinions and recommendations.Here are links to some recent BC discussion topics with opinions from other members:Best Antivirus?Best anti-virus software for windows 8?Looking for recommended anti-virus softwaresWhat is the best antivirus protection?What's the best premium security suite in the market currently?I generally recommend ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus or Emsisoft Anti-Malware as they leave a small footprint...meaning they are not intrusive and do not utilize a lot of system resources. Kaspersky Anti-virus is also a good choice for the same reason. If you don't want to pay then I would recommend avast! Free Antivirus or Bitdefender Anti-virus Free Edition.For more choices see Choosing an Anti-Virus Program.Keep in mind that an offer of free anti-virus software is essentially a marketing technique...a way of advertising and enticement to get folks to try a product and if they like it, to purchase the full (or Pro) version which typically provides more features. Marketing and promotional strategies are built into the vendor's business model as part of their operating costs. Bottom's all about generating revenue and finding new and creative ways to do so. As such, users may have to deal with occasional nagging pop-ups or nuisance advertising and prompts to upgrade to the paid version.By using such free programs, you are essentially agreeing to the terms of the vendor's service which includes those ads. In some cases you may be able to disable annoying pop-ups through the anti-virus settings if the vendor included an option to disable them. If the vendor does not have such an option listed, then your only alternative is to switch anti-virus software if the pop-up ads annoy you that much.Also keep in mind that many anti-virus vendors are bundling toolbars and other software with their products as a cost recoup measure. In fact, all free Anti-virus programs now come with toolbars or other bundled software except Bitdefender Free.Beware: Free Antivirus Isn’t Really Free AnymoreHas the antivirus industry gone mad?!ESET and Emsisoft Anti-Malware also have the added advantage of blocking the installation of most Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) (such as adware, spyware, unwanted toolbars, browser hijackers) if you enable that feature.

hi peeps im wondering if anyone knows where i can get a replacement internal cd-rw+ drive for a sony vaio

my dad was copying files with it and since they were "big files" he decided to squirt it with this can of condensed air that you can buy, he never hsook it and the lens got soaked and water and hasn't worked since. does anyone know how to sort this or where i can get a replacement as i know going to sony would be VERy expensive.

thanks people


A:Where can i find a replacement....


The water inside of a pressurized can of air is actually alcohol, someone correct me if I'm wrong. That stuff evaporates to nothing, so as long as you don't try to turn on said device while it's still wet you'll be fine...

Seeing as how it doesn't work, someone prolly tried to turn it on while still wet (doh!)

Have you tried cleaning the lens?

Is the sony Vaio in question a laptop or desktop? If it's a desktop, any replacement drive will work. Try for cheap cheap prices.

It may be harder to find a replacement away from Sony if it's a laptop.

Power Supply which is now a Codegen Dual- w The Problem with the computer is that it no longer turns On The lights of the PC won t turn on but the Fan of the processor the one on the back and the PSU all turn on but nothing appears on screen Pressing and Holding the Power button sometimes shuts down the Fan of the Processors Fan and the one on the back I do not know what the name of that fan but the PSU Fan Motherboard Replacement? still spins Before this behavior started to happen the PC worked normal there were no Performance issues everything just worked until it started to shut down Motherboard Replacement? unexpectedly and ultimately refusing to turn on I already tested the RAM Hard Drive and PSU on another desktop computer and it all worked the RAM and Hard Drive all came out with no errors I also used a Power Supply from another computer to the eMachines computer and RAM and nothing still the same problem So is this Mother Board related Will replacing the Motherboard fix the problem Thanks in Advance nbsp

Hi all,
I have a Dell Inspiron 530s with one 288gig hard drive (SATA) running Vista home premium/64 (SP2). Although the system seems is running okay, I am preparing to replace the drive (DR0) because of ?event errors ID 7. Also taking this opportunity to replace DR0 with a larger capacity drive, say 500gig. I downloaded ?EASEUS Disk Copy? and created a DVD bootable disk with cloning software. My thought is to add/install the NEW drive (DR1), then boot off the DVD and clone the old to the new drive, then replace DR0 with DR1. First, does this procedure seem OK? Any pitfalls? Also: By cloning the smaller drive to a larger drive, will I be able to use the additional space or will I be restricted to the 288 gigs on the original drive?

So I have been using the free Sygate Personal Firewall for a while now. Apparently it is not being supported anymore. Anyone know of another free one that is equivalent (and doesn't stop functioning or reduce effectiveness after a 30 day trial)? Eh, I might actually have to spring for one. But not if I can help it!
