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: Cant Decide between Lumia 650 vs Lumia 640 XL

I have the non xl Lumia 640 and the battery is a beast. If you can do without Zeiss optics I'd give you this 3rd option. Also to my knowledge the 650 cannot capture 1080p video cause of the snapdragon 2** series but I think that the performance deference of the 650 and 640(xl) is not noticeable. Edit: The 650 has an oled screen while the 640xl has ips, judging from my phone if you want a screen visible under the sun the 640 is a no go.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

Hi, I am trying to upgrade two computers, one has a athlon ii x2 250, 4 gb memory and a msi hd 6670 graphics card, and the other pc is a athlon ii x4 650, 4gb memory and msi hd 6670 graphics card,
I am trying to decide what to get, I can either only get a cpu/motherboard/memory or a single graphic card im not able to get both.
I was considering the hd 7850 for graphics card
or I was thinking of getting the a10 5800k, and doing dual graphics.
I know either way im getting an improvement for both pc's but I cant decide which one would be a better improvement. I also heard that getting a good graphics card with a crappy cpu itll throttle the gpu,
 

A:Upgrading PCs, can't decide on CPU or graphics card

What is you current setup?
What is your budget?

Can you upgrade the CPU to at least x4 or possibly an AM3+ CPU without purchasing a new motherboard?

Edit:
It is worth mentioning that if you are using an OEM Windows version, purchasing a new motherboard will invalidate your Windows license and require a new license. So changing motherboards for people who have an OEM install has additional cost, which many people don't know or think about when making decisions.

A:ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

Your worst nightmare just happened. An Intel guy logged into your thread.

That said, I shant tarry.

Buy a Gigabyte board. (period). Which particular one, you can figure out.

Despite a lower memory bit access spec, (256 bit GTX-460) vs (448 bit GTX-260), the GTX-460, (on paper at least) seems to outperform it.. (This is on a 1 GB GTX-460 card only). Plus it has way more "CUDA" cores, (336 vs 192), whatever that means. (I think it's important though).

The GTX-460 is current line and has GDDR-5 and DX-11. Something to think about.

Oh, before I forget an Antec "902" is actually a 900 "2". But it does seem to run all together when you try and say it, yes? Great case, BTW.

I gotta jet, my Prescott's starting to overheat.....

Hi Gingerbill,
you said you use it for gaming, what are the rest of your system specs? games are very GPU dependent, might serve you better to get a better graphic card.

A:Can't decide on what to get

The HD 48xx cards have problems with heat only because the default fan speed is set very low. There is a tweak available here that allows you to set the fan speed to your desired level.

If your monitor has a native resolution of 1680x1050 or less, the HD 4850 is perfect for you.

And PhysX is a moot point IMO, since the game needs to support hardware-accelerated physics via PhysX, and there are only a handful of games out there that have such support.

As for CUDA, it is useful primarily for developers. Having a CUDA-supported GPU does not guarantee better gaming performance at all.

Hey all,

I'm looking for a new (well, first ever) laptop for uni this year. I am an art student so will be using it mainly for graphics software, image editing, and the normal music listening etc. Power to run games well would also be a plus So I guess it's mainly a multimedia laptop. I don't want to be spending any more that 400/450 pounds to be honest.

I have my eyes mainly on http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/126329/rb/0 and http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...esc&filter_category=&filter_string=&offset=10

The second seems to have slightly better specs for a slightly more expensive price, but im more a fan of AMD to be honest. Maybe another laptop on Ebuyer http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/store/5/category/Laptops would suit me more.

Any advice is very much appreciated.

All of those have integrated graphics, so they might not have the graphical processing power you are looking for. Does Dell have a European website? If they do you might want to take a look at their Vostro line.

I want a really nice gaming rig, but I want the style and sleekness of Mac computers.

I want Mac OS X for it's sleek and compact computers, and it's video editing capabilities, but I want a really good gaming rig for Windows gaming. I can't afford a Mac Pro, so what should I do?

A:Help to decide about 2 PC builds...

What are you going to use the PC (or 2 PCs?) for?
If your going to do alot of gaming Its probably better to get a slightly cheaper (I wouldnt sacrafice a few GHz, though, maybe a few hundred Mhz) and spend a bit more on the video card.
For multitasking go for the dual core build.
The temperature very much depends on which build you end up making, but so lond as you get a good case and heatsink, the temp isnt likely to go over 60 with no overclocking. (My Athlon 4200+ X2 stays below 45C Under load when not overclocked).

i would go with an intel core2 duo processor, asus 680i motherboard, and at least a gig of corsair DDR2 800 ram, in dual channel config. i reccomend two smaller hard drives as apposed to one big one, so you could run them in a fast raid 0 array. raid 0 combines the capacities of the disks involved, so two 160GB drives would give you single 320GB volume. as for the power supply...go with a name brand (that's important for pretty much all computer parts) known for quality, such as antec or PC power & cooling.

if you get a single video card, i would say get the antec neopower 550w, which is quiet, efficient, and supports modular cabling.

as for the USB usage you mentioned, your USB controller (mobo) is going to be the limiting factor in determining how much power can be drawn.

i would edit your post and remove your email address, this is a public webpage and can be viewed by anyone.

Hello!
I'm looking for an opinion about my next purchase of a TV which I also would like to use for gaming purposes. I know the difference about the Plasmas and LCD's (burning, view angle, blacks, etc.) but not for gaming, so my questions are:

Which one is better for gaming purposes? LCD or plasma?
Here this is what I want to buy, for sure it will be one of these two:

LCD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16889102103
for movies I would love this one cuz is 1080p (don't care about $500 more)

Plasma
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16889102058
but the size here I love it and specially how the blacks looks.

Both have PC input and I'm willing to have the best resolution posible for gaming. I really need some advice because can't decide. Thank you!
 

A:Can't decide Plasma or LCD

I cant say which would be better for gaming. But for the money i would stay away from plasma. When they breakdown, there is nothing really repairable. Have you looked at DLP? To me DLP looks better than LCD.

Hi guys I was just wondering which of the following setups would be better for gaming:

Core 2 Duo E6300 and 7600GT

OR

Athlon 64 3500+ and 7900GT

This is assuming that all the other parts in the system are the same. Also, I cannot buy the Core 2 AND the 7900GT due to budget restrictions.
 

A:Can't decide what to buy

Yeesh. Tough call.

Is that Athlon system an AM2 system?

As they are now, that 3500+ w/ 7900GT would probably outperform the Core 2 Duo system from a stricly gaming standpoint. The graphics card does most of the work.

But that 3500+ cpu is going to get dated real quick as games start taking advantage of dual core CPUs more and more.

Me? If I was building a new system now, I'd have to get a dual core CPU.

Hi. This is my first time posting, so I'd appreciate it if i got some responces.

I'm planing to get a new Video Card, but i dont know what to decide . I only have a $220 limit and I want to get something decent, that would work for games. I'd choose between Raeon or Nvidia, so please tell me which video card would be best for me for $220 CAN, gaming. Please post up prices too (taxes included please).
 

A:Purchasing Video Card, Can't Decide

depends on what you want to play. $220 CAN is about $198 US dollars. I'd go with NVIDIA. I've used both Radeon and NVIDIA and radeon has had driver issues in the past where the card couldn't be used. I am sure it is cleaned up by now. NVIDIA tends to be more stable. Actually it's really a matter of preference. Both makers make outstanding cards.

A:buying notebook but don`t know to decide which

Do you actually have to buy one of these? I wouldn't recommend a generic cheap-*** laptop like these to anyone. It is better to buy an older business class model from a decent brand than watch that chinese lump of plasitc fall apart after three months.

Considering these two laptops..

So which 64-bit applications are you planning to use?
The first machine doesn't have wireless? I hope that is a typo on your part..
I would take the first one if it had wireless. If not, the second for sure.

PC Power and Cooling Turbo-Cool 510 XE - Used

Obviously each has its strengths and weaknesses, and if the PC PandC was brand new i'd definately get it, although its on Ebay second hand, pulled from someone elses system. Although I have heard great things about them, and how they are much better than Antecs. Both are the same price too.

So, can anyone help me?
 

A:Trying to decide on a power supply

Go with the new Antec. The difference is the warranty or lack of one. Antec's is 3 years. Is there any on the used PC Power and Cooling?

A:help me decide upgrades! on brand new pc

Great system so far!

I would guess you have enough ram. There are, i believe, fairly good arguments for not going over 2 gigs on a win xp system anyway.

For tv tuners i would stick to ATI or Hauppage. Pci or usb, i dont think it matters. I have used both myself and i have a Hauppage unit right now.

As for vid cards, i dont do a lot of gaming, will leave that to those more in the know, lol. But if you dont do heavy gaming, maybe you are ok with what you have.

How about a firewire or usb2 or sata external box with hard drive for backup and storage (photos) as you only have the one hard drive listed? If firewire make sure it has the oxford chipset and no other. If usb stay away from optorite chipsets. I think i have the word right but its opto-something, these are known trouble-makers as far as chipsets go. Often the very cheapest usb boxes are the ones to stay away from, look at the specs, or go to usbman.com for all usb info.

Emachines t6522 or Gateway 832gm
 

A:Please help me decide?

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/4660/4660sp3.shtml
http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T-Series&model=T6522

Those are the links so people can see the specs of the machines you are looking at.

How much is your budget? Did you ever think of building your own computer? You could probably make a MUCH more reliable computer than an emachine or gateway by building one yourself. Neither of those companies have a very good reputation....

If you MUST choose between those two.....

Both have integrated graphics which will not be good enough for gaming. As that is one of your stated goals, you'll want to be sure the one you get has an expansion slot for your graphics. This gives you the option of upgrading your graphics card in the future once you get sick of integrated graphics (and you will if you are a gamer).

The emachines doesn't state whether or not it has a PCIex16 slot, but according to this link (http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/46889/?o=0 a community of owners of that particular emachine) it does have a PCIex16 slot.

With that said, if I HAD to choose between those two computers, I wouldn't. Just kidding.... mostly.

I'd go for the (this is so hard to say.....) emachine.

A:754 or 939...need to decide by midnight TONIGHT (2 hours left!!)

You will definately be sorry if you don't go socket 939 now.
Thats what I'm upgrading for.

Socket 939s are the latest besides 940, but I don't think many drivers are compatibile with 940s.

Also, you will be kicking yourself if you dont go with pci-express now, thats also what I'm going with for x-mas. AGP is going out of date fast.

I'm not saying 754 sockets are bad, but if I were you I'd go with the latest.
I'm not sure how fast the gaming economy is moving, but you will probably be better off with 939 for atleast 3-4 years.

LG 16X DVD ROM
LG 40X 12X 40 CDRW
Mator 80G 7200 and a 20G 7200 (tha latter for backup)

Since they r roughy the same price, which one will perform better wit their motherboard. I also heard that the P4s work better wit R-RAM.

Hi, I was wondering about factors to think about when buying a new power supply.

First off, I think I should tell you what I already know:
I know what SATA and MOLEX cables are.
My specs:
Graphics Card: Asus NVIDIA GTX 650
CPU: Intel Pentium E5400 2.7GHz
Ram: 4.00gb DDR3
Mother Board: Dell OK83V0
And two hard drives

My current power supply's max output is 300 Watts, and I'm kind of surprised my computer hasn't crashed yet.

Thanks for reading, I understand everyone here is a volunteer, and I'm grateful for someone to even read this post.

A:How to decide what Power Supply to buy?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
PSU's well you always or at least I do = always think of future upgrading,
Too little power is never a good thing and only limits your upgrading abilities.

2nd would be quality units only.
Off brand or very cheap psu's aren't worth risking existing or newer hardware.
Look a warrantees,
EVGA G2 and P2 units have 10 year warrantee's well worth paying a little more for
Wattage wise depends on what you need and possibly need in the future
Possibly a new build

Personally a EVGA 850 G2 or P2 would be my preference but i'm sure if you're not wanting to SLI = run 2 gpu's a 750-650 G2 or P2 would be fine.

I currently have an 8GB,Micro SDHC, Class 4, Non-branded Memory Card in my phone, but it's full up. I have bought & tried a Kingston 64GB, Micro SDXC, Class 10; a SanDisk, 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 10; & a Samsung 64GB, micro SDXC, Class 4. None of them is recognized by my phone, although they work fine in my laptop. Do I need to reduce the size down to a 32GB, SDHC, or what can anybody recommend for me to try next. I have read that somebody has installed a 128GB in the same model phone & got it to work, but I don't want to go to the expense for that size. Thanks for any suggestions!

A:Memory card for Nokia Lumia 1520 smart phone.

It's not something I've experienced, so maybe someone who's experienced the problem first hand will come along shortly. However, when you say they aren't recognised, I assume it shows the SD Card in Storage Sense as 'not found'? Just out of interest, if you install the 'Files App' (a Microsoft App), does if show the card then?

Another thing to check is whether the cards are formatted to the right file system? Taken from HERE:






What file systems do my Lumia phone support?

Your phone supports FAT32 for SDHC cards, exFAT for SDXC cards, with a single Master Boot Record (MBR) partition table.

- Up to 32-GB SDHC cards using the FAT file system.
- 64-GB SDXC cards using the exFAT file system.



Instructions for formatting the card here:
FAQ - My memory card is not working properly in Lumia phone - Microsoft - UK

If that doesn't work, a quick Google search shows that some people have needed to completely reset the phone before it would recognise their SD card. Obviously, this would be a bit of a sledge hammer solution and not particularly ideal as it would entail backing up your entire phone, completely wiping it and starting again from scratch by going to Settings > About > Reset Your Phone.

The problem with my Lumia is that for some reason it won't connect 1520 Lumia WiFi to the private network in the hostel where I currently am Previously every month in order to use the WiFi you were given a new username and password and then the Salvation Army menu would appear in IE and fill out the details there and there was no problem Every time I try to connect in WiFi it would automatically take WiFi Lumia 1520 me to the menu in IE mentioned previously Now it goes to secure password page and enter the password without the username and keeps saying renter password without even to try the password I have connected to other free WiFi hot spots with no problem it just appears to be the Salvation Army one and yes I have asked other residents with Lumia phones and other manufacturers and have not come across this problem I also tried using a random password but only characters long and it looks as if it is trying to use it nut then reverts back to the re-enter password Unfortunately I have also tried the Hard Reset with no joy and used several usernames and passwords given to me all resulting in the same problem Any suggestions would be much appreciated

I like Kaspersky's protection but not only is webroot light they seem to constantly improve it

I'm using Win 10 right now if that helps...any suggestions appreciated
 

A:Webroot or Kaspersky.....Trying to decide

If you looking for better protection then go for kaspersky. But if you wanted lightweight one, then webroot is the winner (kaspersky is heavier). Webroot's protection also good, even not as good as kaspersky.

Its depend to your need and your system resource.

I suggest you to go to "War Room" subforum, you can find much info about Apps battle (including VS's battle) nor go to Kaspersky and Webroot subforum to find pros and cons both of products. So you can decide which is meet your need and the best fit for your system.

Hi all,
Please forgive me for another similar topic

After the vote has been cast, please write a few words why you voted on this and not another. The system on which it will be used softwares is a windows 7 pro 64bit.
Ps.Please do not write the type of texts "I voted for this because I use it" etc. I care about the answers that will bring something to the topic
 

A:The final battle - time to decide

This has already been done, but to better answer your own question with a question, would be to ask why you do not just try each one on your system and see how each effect your system, uses, and knowledge.

Hi there, Nokia Lumia 635 doesn't have a feature to save the Contacts list in a Micro SD card. In the Microsoft Store, I was able to see a few Apps (free) and one of them (sorry, forgot the name) came directly from a Microsoft site but it was not to be
seen in the list of installed apps. Another one found could compile all the contacts in Excel and email out. But I would like to know about one that can save it in a Micro SD, restore it to the Phone when a need arises and much more, if any. So, please advise
if there is a paid/free App that would do this. Mine is W10 upgraded.Thanks.

I'm using a Lumia 640 Dual SIM running Windows 10 Mobile (10586.164), but am unable to choose which SIM card to call someone from within the People App now. You used to be able to press the down arrow and select which SIM card to call from, but now it doesn't matter where you press, it just dials the phone number without giving you any choice. As you can tell by the 'History' tab in the below screenshot, this is with the latest version of the People app.

Anyone else using a Lumia Dual SIM finding the same thing?

I have an HP that continues to give me the blue screen of death. I have tried everything but after being up over 24 hours straight and having just now gotten another blue screen of death I am going to buy a new system. It is for business and I am going to drive HP crazy until they give me my money back.

What I have now is a 32 bit and one of the systems I am looking at is a 64. I also have a 64 bit laptop. My concern, will I have much trouble with the software? I have seen it as an issue occasionally but not a ton. Here are the specs on both computers so help me out here please

It's too hard to see them compared side by side so I am attaching a word doc.

A:Help me decide... Gateway SX2800-01 vs Gateway DX4200-09

Sorry to hear about your troubles!

The only issue that really arises from 64-bit operating systems is in relation to drivers. I have Windows 7 64-bit, and the majority of my programs are 32-bit and they run without a problem. If you run a 64-bit OS, your drivers MUST be designed for 64-bit Windows. If Gateway is selling you 64-bit Windows, than they have driver support for it. So to put it succinctly, you won't have any problem running 64-bit Windows.

A:How to decide what IP to block?

Repeat the check in karenwhosis again, but this time for 'download.antispyware2009.com'.Now compare the original previously posted whois results with the lates results.Notice the very same dns name server in both results?These ones:ns0.dnsmadeeasy.comns1.dnsmadeeasy.comns2.dnsmadeeasy.comns3.dnsmadeeasy.comns4.dnsmadeeasy.com We could just skip the www.download part from the url, as the url is properly just 'antispyware2009.com' (another whois lookup will reveal the same info for both download.antispyware2009.com and antispyware2009.com).See http://www.robtex.com/dns/tiggee.net.html and http://www.robtex.com/dns/antispyware2009.com.htmlSo yes these are the the actual dns IP for the antispyware2009.com site.It coincides with the same IP for the tiggee.net.Both share the same name servers and the same AS16552 (TIGGEE LLC) domain.By blocking the IPs seen in the PG2 for the spyware2009.com, you are blocking off the name servers and the domain.This would be the 'home' for this malware server(s).But the files probably used to be spread out to the web are shown as cached on:75.125.0.0/16ThePlanet.com Internet Services, Inc.(this was seen in the begining) from here:http://www.robtex.com/dns/antispyware2009.com.htmlTheplanet.com is just another 'Content delivery network', albeit theplanet.com is well known for caching and delivering well known malware. Almost famous for this delivering malware.Can just theplanet.com IP be blocked off?It would involvel blocking off the IP 75.125.241.58 seen listed here:http://www.robtex.com/ip/75.125.241.58.htmlThis block would work for a while...until the theplanet.com changes the files around or changes the servers around...it probably is not a static ally assigned IP for the antispyware2009.com..it could be moving.So blocking off the IP of 75.125.241.58 may not work permanently and secondly ther dns lookup would be still be made.So the final choice to block off 75.125.241.58 is by the name server from tiggee.This blocks off both the name lookups and their home servers - in whcih case the cached server content may never have a chance.Richard.

I would like some experienced guidance regarding the selection of a home page. For years we used excite and myway, but I think somehow these may have let some bad stuff in. I use Mcafee virus protection and firewall, but want to cover this area as well.

Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks!

A:Help Me Decide On A Homepage

Could you post what OS and browser you are using? The home page is personal preference. Excite should not be a problem as long as your antivirus is updated. I would run the Google toolbar with the popup blocker enabled. That will lower the aggravation factor.If I read your POST correctly you want advice on security as well? If so you came to the right place.The general rule:1) One antivirus. There are several very nice freeware verison that are effctive. I prefer AVG. I don't like McaAfee or Norton because they draw heavy on resoures. 2) One firewall.I use SyGate but it was disconnected 11-30-2005. I still plan to use it for a while, but have stop recommending it. The only other freeware firewall I feel comfortible recommending is Zone Alarm. It's will supported and very effective. XP firewall is a was of time and instills false security. Use it if you have nothing else but be cautious. It will not stop malware from sending your info out onto the internet.3) Antispyware and online scanners. As many as the resources on your computer will allow you to run. This is where you will get alot of different opinions,espercially here. I'll provide the list below of what I run. 4) Utilities. There are several and you will again get several opinions most of which will be good.Antivirus (Run only one.)AVG Free Edition Antivirus (I personally use)Avast Home Edition Antivirus FreewareAntiVir Personal Edition Classic FreewareBitDefender 8 Free Edition AntiVirus FreewareAntispywareMicrosoft AntiSpyware Beta (2000,and XP only)SpybotAdAware SE Personal EditionEwido Security Suite - 14 day trial(2000, and XP only)A Squared FreeOnline scans Trendmicro's Housecall Panda's ActiveScan F-secure's Virus Scan SyGate's Trojan scanUtilitycCleanerEverest home (hardware and software information)Fresh Diagnose (Diagnostic and system resource)Memtest86 "A Stand-alone Memory Diagnostic"MicroSoft's Memory TestDigtal Dolly (Hard drive utility)www.bootdisk.comFirewallsZone AlarmBest of all... they are free.

I've noticed there are many unanswered threads (including my own) while other have posts in mid to high double figures in the thread.

What gets one post answered & another ignored? Is it some are too hard (or maybe too easy) to bother with? Is it some are interesting while others offer no challenge?

Please post the full HJT log here.

Make sure you are running the latest HJT v1.99.1 and that it is not running from a Temp folder within a zip.

Make sure you've got the latest detections for both SpybotSD and AdawareSE
and then run all of AVG, Spybot and Adaware in Safe Mode
then boot into Normal Mode and run them again.

____________________________________________________
Adaware SE - http://www.lavasoft.de/software/adaware/
Install Adaware, but don't run the scan just yet.
You should get the detection updates during installation,
but if not, open Adaware, click "check for updates now" and then "connect".
Then close Adaware.

Then, when in Safe Mode...
In the main Adaware window, click "Start"
Checkmark "Do a full system scan"
Uncheck "search for negligible risk entries"
Click "Next" to start the scan.
Checkmark all results, and click "Next" to fix.

____________________________________________________
Then, after doing all the above, do online scans at preferably 2 of the following sites:
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
http://www3.ca.com/virusinfo/virusscan.aspx
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
http://security.symantec.com
Then reboot and post the new HJT log here.

Hi, I need help with a search macro for excel. I need to search coulmn B for a number (all types - integer, decimal) then if that is found check column A (in the same row) to see if it is blank. If it is blank I need to put an 'x' in that corresponding cell in column A. Here's an example:

col A col B
r1 ____ 3.25
r2 text 10
r3 ____ text
r4 ____ 8

It doesn't line up perfect but you get the point. So here the macro needs to put an 'x' in A1 & A4.

In addition, I have another macro I'm using to return a value for the last row called 'myLastRow'. I want to use this variable in a For statement to have the search & decide macro know when to stop looking in column B since the data changes from scenario to scenario.

Thanks for your help in advance!
 

A:Solved: Search & Decide excel macro

Try the macro below. Just change the portion highlighted in red to reflect the first cell in column B to check.
Code:
Sub FindNumbers()

For Each vCell In Range("[COLOR="Red"]B1[/COLOR]:B" & Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row).Cells

If Not IsEmpty(vCell) And IsNumeric(vCell) Then

If vCell.Offset(0,-1).Value = "" Then

vCell.Offset(0, -1).Value = "X"

End If

End If

Next vCell

End Sub

Ok, Using Excel. I have a cell with a product code in it. The last three numbers of that code represent the width of the product.
What i want to set up is a cell to look at the code and retrieve the last part of the code. i.e.
A product code of USL1-1.25-0.99 would retrieve 0.99 to a cell.
Here is where the plot thickens and it may not be possible.
Sometimes the last part of the code may only be 1.1 for example, (so not three numbers but two). So in which case i am looking to retrieve the numbers to the right of the last - (minus) sign at all times.
If this is not possible i will look at alternatives, keep up the good work all!

Your connection should be fine for the game. Be forewarned, though: there will be lag spikes. They're a server-side problem.

If you are a legal registered owner of WinZip 9.0 and decide to upgrade to WinZip 10.0 Beta, it will convert it to an evaluation version and will NOT accept your previously-purchased registration code. The www.winzip.com site will E-mail you a temporary registration code to use, but it will only work for as long as WinZip is in beta release. Once the final release of WinZip 10.0 is released, the temporary registration code will no longer work and will convert it back to an evaluation version.

Be aware of this before you make the decision to make the upgrade. I found out the hard way.

Hello, first of all excuse me if i post this in the wrong section of the forum,if it's a issue then remove my post or move it .I'm looking to buy a cheap GPU, nothing to great but ok enough to hold it's own.

I've narrowed it down to these two : Sapphire Radeon R7 260X and the Palit GTX 750 Ti. The test indicates that the Radeon is slightly better and besides that it's actually cheaper also.I only used nvidia cards so far,to see the amd one surpass the nvidia in quality while offering at a smaller price also makes me a bit suspicions. What card should i chose between these two ? Or would you guys recommend another one at this price range ?

A:Looking for a cheap GPU,help me decide

I would recommend the 750ti. it draws very little power, and has a good amount of performance. You really can't relay on artificial benchmarks because real world results will vary. id consider both cards to be about even in performance, and with the lower power draw I'd go 750ti.

I'm looking at possibly upgrading my computer, in the near future. I'm not much of a gamer, mostly Civilization 5, SWTOR, WoW, and perhaps some other games in the future... (Mass Effect 3, etc). I mostly do Photoshop work, and watch videos online and on disc.

I've narrowed it down to basics of what I'd like in the case, but can't decide between AMD or Intel.

Which config would you say is better for my wishes? $2,000 is probably my limit.

AMD FX 8-Core Configurator http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/AMD_FX_8-Core_Configurator/w/107691

or

Intel Z68 Core i5/i7 Configurator http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Intel_Z68_Core_i5_i7_Configurator/w/107693
Or should I wait for something new?
 

A:can't decide which is better...

The Z68 is the better system... with these recommended changes:

A - dump the water cooling.

B - dump the Overclock... do a bit of research, you do this yourself - takes seconds. And OC shouldn't be done on brand new hardware... after a month or so, then OC... give them some burn-in. You may find your PC so fast that why bother? OC is not for long-term hardware.

C - Get a single 7770 card rather than dual 7750s. Review on new 77x0 cards: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5541/amd-radeon-hd-7750-radeon-hd-7770-ghz-edition-review/11

The 7800 series isn't out yet for another month or so.

With that BUILD, dual 7750s are not much bang for your buck. For $3 less the ICQ-6870 is a faster single card - easily and will always be faster with better cooling.

D - Corsair Graphite 600T Gaming Case is a nicer case, I think... but its a lot bigger... Cases don't matter too much as long as they are in the same category of quality. I also like the Antec P280 case.. here are some heat & noise benchmarks.

http://www.anandtech.com/show/5556/lian-lis-pc90-the-hammer-strikes-hard/5

E - I'd take Gigabyte motherboard over ASUS

F - PSU is overkill... $250? Get the Corsair 750TX or 850TX. More than enough power to handle any SINGLE video card setup with 4 hard drives.

F - I'd go with an intel 120GB 320 or 520 series drive (520 is SATA3) for reliability.

Ending price is $1858 with my config with the P280 case,Corsair 850TX PSU and i320-120GB.

OK so I'm going to buy a laptop an have narrowed it down to 2 computers.

1: It's a HP computer (HP DV6-6136) with a Intel Core i7 2630QM and a AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphic card.
2: It's a Samsung computer (Samsung NP-RC530-S03SE) with a Intel Core i5-2410M and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 540M graphic card.

The HP computer cost about 150$ more than the Samsung Computer so my question would be is it worth it? With that I mean if I play Black OP's, WOW, Bad company etc, would the HP computer allow me to play at higher graphics than the Samsung or is it just useless extra stuff? Any pointers would be helpful

I have also heard that AMD Radeon HD 6770M on HP computers are having some problems, is this true and is there anything I should worry about if I decided to buy it?

Thanks in Advance!
 

A:Can't decide what laptop to buy

They are about equal and I'd expect similar performance from both.

My experience with biostar boards is,they usually have a pretty
basic bios with limited overclocking function access.

Asus usually has access to the overclocking functions that are needed.
I haven't used a biostar board for a while,so it might be a good idea to
download the manuals for both and compare what functions are available.
even though,sometimes manuals can be written for use on all versions
within a particular model number series,so are a little general.
You can get manuals at the manufacturers website.

If it were my choice,I would say the asus.

Sapphire Toxic GB With Vapor-X cooling Sapphire Vapor-X GB In my country they both cost the same Tho the GB edition is not in store it which 4890, can't decide come After the site I got a i rig with W Corsair x or x resolution I use The Toxic is a factory OC card and would be - FPS higher than the Vapor-X GB If you overclock the Vapor-X GB it would be the same as the Toxic but then again if you OC the Toxic it still would be - FPS better Overclockersclub state that the difference is minimal The Sapphire HD Vapor-X GB offers a route away from the cookie cutter reference video cards from ATI With this card you get factory overclocked performance with great overclocking potential on top of what is already there exceptional cooling capabilities and better construction all for a price point that really is not a huge penalty over the GB model This 4890, can't decide which is compared with a normal Vapor-X GB model not the Toxic GB with Vapor-X cooling system nbsp

Hi I'm trying to build a competent gaming rig, I have a 312mb 8800gts with 4gb of ram, but every game seems to complain about my CPUs core speed which is 2.0GHz.

I thought about buying a Dual Core Athlon 7750 Black Edition with a core speed of 2.7GHz and a bus speed of 1800MHz for $113nzd but there is also a Triple Core Phenom 8650 with a core speed of 2.3GHz but it has a bus speed of 3600MHz, all for $148nzd.

My question is which would be better for gaming? Other suggestions are welcomed as well.

Thanks in advance for any helpful replies.
 

A:Can't decide what CPU to buy

I'd go for the 2.7 Ghz as it is faster and cheaper than the 2.3 Ghz.

My budget is $1000 dollars. I have been looking at the new Intel i7 processor but the 2.66 ghz with 130w or the AMD Phenom x4 940 deneb 3.0 ghz 4x512kb L2 cache 6 mb

I am looking to make a fast gaming pc

I know the con with i7 is that you need to use ddr3 ram which is a con about it so idk. I am looking to get 4 gb of ram and a good graphics card for gaming....

Just post some suggestions in this budget with all the component I will need

Already have a monitor and keyboard

Hi -

My sons computer (my old one) has gone the way of computer heaven. My FIL is giving us his year old desktop, but the DVD drive is broken (it doesn't open without the use of a paper clip and this is not good for my 7 year old). Anyway, I went on newegg.com and am thoroughly confused on what to buy to replace it with. It doesn't need to be anything fancy since it's an old pc and one for a childs use only. But he does play lots of games (95% learning), most of which require the disc to be in when being ran. Doesn't need to be blu-ray or lightscribe, etc. Just a basic, but decent one.

I appreciate any help supplied.
 

A:How to decide on new internal DVD drive?

If the machine is only a year old, the 1st thing you need to do is have a look inside and see if the drive is a SATA or PATA (IDE) drive. A SATA drive will have narrow connection cables (generally, but not always RED in color) and a PATA (IDE) drive will have a wide connection cable generally GRAY in color.

Which one should I buy?
Palit 9600GT Sonic or Twintech 9600GT (No Overclock). Both 512MB.
Is the Gigabyte 9600gt is better than these cards?

thank you

Hello,

the title pretty much says it all. I want to specify one core of my quad core for each start up program to load on that core. I want to do this to speed the start-up process by using all cores because stupid windows won't split the load between them if core #0 is at full load.

This can also be used besides start-up, I want certain programs to run on certain cores, so as when loading all of them I won't have to worry about speed, and I won't have to adjust them to different cores every time!

thanks

I am looking to purchase an external Hard Drive,

I like both the Seagate FreeAgent 500GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive wtih a 5 yr warranty on sale for C $119.00,
& the,
Iomega 500GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive with a 1 yr warranty on sale for C $89.00,

I had decided on grabbing the Iomega as it is $30.00 cheaper & I have friends who have had great sucess with the Iomega drives but it only has a one year warranty vs the FreeAgents five year warrranty.

Please any words of Wisdom on these 2 Drives would be really helpful,
Thanks,

Sound Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102014

And I have some dvd rom drive and some HDD I will be using for now.

I still need to decide on the motherboard, and from there I need to decide on the RAM.

I won't be liquid cooling and money isn't really a problem. I need it to support Crossfire.

If you need anymore info, ask.

Any suggestions/help would be great, thanks!
 

A:Can't decide on a motherboard.

Here is a decent Asus board Do make sure you buy ram from the qvl list at asus.
