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.)

Everything is compatible.

The 500W will be fine running a single GTX 760. However you did list a motherboard that supports two cards. AMD Crossfire anyway, there was no mention of SLI support.

GTX 760 GPU Engine Specs:

Minimum Recommended System Power (W) - 500W

The minimum power specifications have headroom for the average user.

Hey guys I posted a couple weeks ago about a build I was going to do and I listed all the parts. Well I bought the parts yesterday and some are different so I want to see if you guys think everything is compatible. Here it goes

-corsair rm750
-corsair 8gb ram
-gigabyte z87x-ud3h
-evga gtx 780
-128gb samsung evo pro ssd
-1 tb wd black hdd

Also I only have 3 fans at the moment. Do you think I should get more? Thanks guys

Hi this is my first build needing to know if all these things are compatible and may add a video card in the future.
And is the RAM OK how do I decide what to buy (what are the differences between them)?
Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks

A:First build Help (Compatibility)

I would go with standard 1.5V ram from either crucial or corsair. Next is there a reason why you are going with a micro case? If there is fine however remember that they are smaller inside AND less airflow for cooling.

Here is the support page for the board you selected. Each board maker will have an approved list of memory. Check to be sure the memory you intend on purchasing is on that list.

I am planning to build a PC using the following parts:
Mobo-Gigabyte*GA-890GPA-UD3H*AMD 890GX - Socket AM3
CPU-AMD CPU Phenom II 955 Black Edition Quad Core Processor
RAM-Corsair Memory Vengeance 4GB DDR3 2000 MHz CAS 10 XMP Dual Channel Desktop

These are my concerns:
I am not sure whether the Mobo is compatible with the CPU
if the PSU is suitable i.e. too much or too little power
whether the GPU would cope well with games like Black Ops etc.

I am building my first computer and am pretty sure all of these parts are compatible, however wanted to check to make sure before making the buy.

Let me know.

and is it worth it to upgrade to this video card?

thanks in advance

I will actually be going with this motherboard/cpu package I think..

and two sticks of ram.

Relevancy 52.89%

I'll use it primarily for gaming and music production, but for now, let's stick to the gaming part.

CASE: Cooler Master HAF 922
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 970
GPU: GeForce GTX 560 Ti
PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
Monitor: ASUS VH197D Black 18.5"
Keyboard: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4

I already have a decent mouse that I use with my lappy.

Are these compatible?
I checked already, and everything seemed to be in place, but I'm also a bit of a n00b, so I could be way off here.
And lastly, any recommendations/part swaps for a cheaper build while also maintaining a comparable level of power?

A:Compatibility check/recommendations for my first build, anyone?

That PSU is quite a bit of overkill, unless you're considering multiple video cards in the future.

An 18.5" monitor would make me so very, very unhappy. I had two 19" wide screens and got rid of them both almost immediately. 22" is about the sweet spot for the 1680 x 1050 computer 16:10 standard, and you should bump up to 23" if you're going to get a 1920 x 1080P 16:9 ratio panel. There just isn't enough screen height in the smaller panels.

I tried plugging a desktop mouse into my lappy and it didn't work. Don't know if the reverse is true. I didn't try very hard though. Try it first.

You should have enough posts to link your parts choices. Being able to click to the product pages helps us a bunch.

Every time you reinstall Windows and re-enable insider builds, you have to wait several hours until the "Compatibility AppRaiser" runs and the correct build is targeted at your system...

Tipically this process takes 10 to 48 hours or even more.

Is there anyway to force said compatibility checker to run, to get the new build quicker?

A:Any way to force the preview build compatibility checker to run?

If you create an iso each time from the install.esd, then no need to go back to 10586, and you will not have to wait after a clean install.

Personally I wouldn't blow money on an i7-980 1366 based system. Enthusiast level Sandy Bridge products are scheduled before the end of the year and AMD Bulldozer CPUs should be competitive as well, even the 1155 socket Sandy bridge systems are giving very similar performance to that Gulftown processor for a lot less money. I'd rather put the money into better video cards. Also 24Gb of ram is excessive. 8-16Gb is as much as I'd recommend for gaming. If you have other planned uses for the machine then you might have reason to put that much ram in it, otherwise cut back on the ram to at least 16Gb and invest the money into an SSD drive for OS and current games to be stored on. That improves boot speed and loading times for games. Don't think there should be a problem with the H50 in that case. As long as there is clearance between the rear exhaust fan mounting position and the CPU positioning for the radiator and fan to fit then you are good to go.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601?

An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know).

Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack?


A:Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?

You can normally install icons anywhere you like, on any machine or system which uses them, they are merely small graphics of various types. Unless the "Icon-pack" is using software to install something else, ( in which case be careful what it does), you can install it anywhere.

Some "Icon-packs" make extensive changes to system files, are dependent on the system to which they are installed, and best avoided.

RE : I downloaded the most recent iso from the media creation tool but I don't have an option to mount it from the right click menu.

Did you burn the iso to a bootable media, then insert the media to the computer ?
If that was what you did, then you would NOT see the Mount option.
Instead, you would see the Setup option. Use that to start the installation.

It won't activate and you will end up in Safe Mode permanently. One machne = one license. You need to buy another full version. But you can do it if you don't use 7 on the old machine. You will just have to activate by phone and explain. Then if you go online with both, one will deactivate and go to Safe Mode.

I've been stuck on build 11102.rs1_release.160113-1800.
Going to Settings. Update & Security, Check for updates says "your device is up to date".
Checked for updates at least 10 times and always get the same response "Your device is up to date".

I don't want to download an ISO and clean install - I'd like to get the insider updates through
the standard update process.

Any suggestion or solutions?


A:build 11102 will not download latest build 14271

Try this - worked for me in a similar situation.

I deleted all folders in the software distribution folder, selected to leave Insider Program from updates menu, rebooted, rejoined Program and then it found the updates. Try just deleting folders first and checking for updates. That works for some but did not for me (it was the leaving and rejoining that seemed to do the trick).

If you try rejoining and leaving, make an image backup of 11102 first, just in case leaving and rejoining should cause it not to activate (especially if you never started from a valid 7/8 licence). Good idea to make the backup anyway in case the upgrade fails (you would then have to go back to 10586 and start afresh)

Windows 7 has reached RTM builds
and there will be several candidate builds in RTM.

first candidate build of RTM is build 7260.

6.1.7260.0.win7_rtm.090612-2110 - RTM branch build

compiled on 12 june.

You may ask why the first assembly win7_rtm has already been collected on 12 June not 15 June. There are several working groups involved in the process of assembling win 7 RTM build and will be assessing the quality of assemblies. Once the assembly is collected and its quality is confirmed, only then they put to the vote.

you may take time to understand all of these steps and procedures, so only the assembly from June 12 and June 15, attained the status of the real candidates for the final RTM release.

Somewhat unusual situation here. A machine running the latest build (11102) got badly infected by malware. It was such a major attack that I was about to reload the earlier day's image from my Windows Home Server. But it seemed even easier to revert to the previous build, not yet removed from the Windows.old folder. This I did, and everything soon was running fine as expected.

The issue is that the Updates check is not offering Build 11102 again. This isn't a showstopper; I'm sure there will be another newer build soon. But it would be nice to be back up on this latest build, just as all my other Win10 machines are running.

Does anyone know how to make this happen?

Assuming you updated to 14295 through Windows Update ?
If yes, try to reinstall using the newly released 14295 ISO file.....

Download the iso file that corresponds to your Win 10 Insider Preview version ( i.e. language and bit-version )> save it to a folder.
Right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
Installation will begin.
No product key is required.
Activation will be automatic.

Hopefully, reinstall will fix the problems.

The new build (7127 is the only new 1 so far) is available on most torrent sites. If you are having no issues with the RC build 7100 then you may not notice any difference, although, 7127 does seem a bit faster.

Good, except for the E6600. Get the E6400 and overclock it (should overclock well with that board and your ram, without blowing up your processor in 3 years). Will save you quite a bit of money that way.

Also just a personal recommendation. Get the Enermax Noisetaker II 485W PSU instead.

The prompting you are seeing is most likely to get you to notice and install updates that have been accumulating. Otherwise that is a strange one. You might have to sign into an MS account if you already had one setup in order to see that account's information updated on the change from Insider to Anniversary. That would then see everything synced properly.

I just got my income tax return back and now it's time to update my PC. Please bear in mind I'm a newb!

I want to keep the following:

1. Corsair 750W PSU,
2. Antec 1200 case, and
3. EV3A 460GTX 756MB GPU.

In other words I likely need a new motherboard, processor, cooling fan for the processor, RAM, etc. I don't know if I'll need a sound card or ethernet card or if on-board will be good enough. I've heard from a couple friends that Asus Mobos are good. I think I want to go to an Intel processor as that's what I've had to this point and it's done well for me.

A:Build specs. Can you build it?

The issue I see: your mobo supports "ONLY" 4th gen CPU and your CPU of choice is a 5th gen (gen=generation). Even though the mobo is socket 1150, same as CPU, there may bay some firmware incompatibilities. Not sure if there is a BIOS update for the mobo to support 5th gen CPU's, which I doubt it does.

So you may want to consider a new mobo that supports intel's 5th gen series CPU's. Also; there's no mention of a PSU (power supply). I would also move up to a GTX 970's just a better GPU period.

You don't have to worry about psu compatibility. What you have to worry about is if it will fit in the slot and if it has the proper cables; i.e molex cables if the gpu requires them. A psu is one of the only pieces of hardware that doesn't have to match the motherboard/cpu.

CPU's are easy, every motherboard manufacturer has a list of compatible CPU's and the required BIOS version. Look at the list and find one of those processors.

The motherboard manufacturer may also have a list of compatible, in reality just ones they have tested, memory modules and video cards. Most big memory manufacturers also have lists/tools that will list compatible/tested memory modules, for example

Most video cards pretty much work with most motherboards. With video cards you have to make sure you have a quality power supply with sufficient wattage. Video card manufacturers will list a general recommended wattage for the power supply, that's for an average system with that card. They may also list the actual wattage the card itself will use.

Best way to figure out how much power your system will use is to actually use one of the those website calculators, someone has already done the work for you, no need to re-invent the wheel, Be sure to leave some headroom from growth and get a quality power supply. If the system will be used for gaming or intensive workloads then get a proper power supply for that for example Corsair has a CS/CX line for basic use and then it has better AX/HX lines for gaming systems, etc.

Also be sure the components will meet your needs. You wouldn't buy a AMD APU system for a high end gaming system nor would you want to use a GT 730 as it's a low end. This is where online benchmarks and charts come in useful. Tom's Hardware has good hierarchy charts for both CPU's and GPU's and there's also the PassMark website as well. Actual model numbers are useful only to a point, yes an i7 will generally be faster than an i3 but not always and not for all tasks. Also model numbers don't really do anything for comparisons between Intel and AMD processors.

Does anyone know of any AGP conflicts between versions or specific cards?

I am having trouble with a machine I am building. I get no video and get a beep pattern of 1-4-3-3, which is not defined by the manual.

I am attempting to use a Voodoo3 1000 that I pulled from a Compaq Presario 5852 with an Intel SE440BX-2 mobo. The mobo was brand new.

I am hoping that it is not a bad mobo or vid card. I tried reseating the card about half a dozen times.

A:AGP compatibility

You are going to need another video card to test it or another system you can put that card in. Double check all of your jumpers and switches if any. You might want to look at you clear cmos jumper to make sure it is in the proper position. If you have some extra memory or more than one stick you might want to reduce it to just one stick or try some new memory.

The reason why I ask is that it has the letter "e" at the end of the name and that someone who wrote a review had trouble with his motherboard.

A:P4 Compatibility?

That will work with socket 478. The guy who said he had a problem with the socket probably had a different socket and was a newb. All socket 478 procs fit all socket 478 mobos and your mobo is compatible with this proc. Enjoy... and get urself a new vid card.

Is there a way I can run a program in x32 bit mode or something?

Reason being is I need to extract the ROM from my TI-83+ calculator, and I cant do that because it says I need a x32 bit OS.

A:x32 compatibility?

Does it involve installing a device driver? If so then maybe not.

Though have you tried running in any of the cmpatibility modes? THose might fake the program out enough that it'll stop balking at finding a 64bit OS. But then if your installing a device driver you could be taking a chance on causing a problem. A lot of people install older drives and they ususaly work ok but then a lot of them fail causing all sorts of boot/bsod troubles.

Can a CD made up of audio and video via the Movie Maker feature of Windows ME be played on a standard DVD player attached to, for instance, a TV? In other words, I would like to share my home movies with others who have a DVD player for their TV I know that DVD players can play audio CDs. Thank you.

A:CD/DVD compatibility

Nope. DVD players only play audio CDs and DVDs. They can't play computer generated data CDs.

A:lcd compatibility

I think you're going to be very limited in what you can replace this panel with. Even if the physical LCD display is the same as another make/model, the controller and the mounting hardware is normally unique to a specific model laptop.

on the specification part of a certin motherbord, ive read a description that says

"DDR3 1600 with Intel? Ivy Bridge CPU, DDR3 1333 with Intel? Sandy Bridge CPU."

does this mean that if my processor is ivy, (i3 3210) then the only compatibility memory that i can use is ddr3 1600mhz? would 1333mhz work on this specific processor?

ASRock > H61M-VS3

I cannot fugre out how to tell if these are compatible. I have to replace my motherboard so have decided to upgrade to a dual core processor. The motherboard I picked because it has an AGP slot so I can still use the current video card. If these don't fit together, it would be easier to decide on a different CPU than a MB.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Manchester 2.4GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor - Retail
ASRock 939Dual-VSTA Socket 939 ULi M1695 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

I would really appreciate some advice. I want to spend as little as possible so if you have better choices let me know.

What I have to have is SATA, mem cap 4 gb (DDR 440), at least 6 channel audio, and at least 1 AGP slot.


A:MB/CPU compatibility

Both are socket 939, and the motherboard supports dual core processors, so you're good to go.

One question though, why are you building a new dual-core rig with an AGP slot???

(BTW - you specify 'at least one AGP slot' when there have never been any boards made ever with more than one. Dual-card setups are only available in PCI-Express)

AGP is dwindling since PCI-E came out, and pretty soon, will be extinct. I'd suggest finding a motherboard with a PCI-E slot instead.

EDIT - - - Never mind, I see that you want to keep your existing Vid card. However, if you can scrape it together, you'd be WAY better off to upgrade your video card too, and go PCI-Express. Otherwise, your whole system will be out of date very quickly.

Hi All I ve just bought an PII PIII m board that has a mhz bus The reason i why i bought it was because i thought my parents old PIII m board was faulty freezing and two or three popped caps and this board was the exact same board However it did not turn out to be the m board so i thought i might just use it for another basic compatibility RAM PC The problem is i ve put PC MB and PC MB into the m board The pc boots up fine to the BIOS screen but hangs after the memory test everytime This happens with only AGP card installed hdd fdd cd modem etc are all disconnected I thought it maybe a quot halt on all errors quot setting within the BIOS due to me only having a USB keyboard but i ve since attached a PS keyboard with no luck however i cant get to the BIOS Can anyone tell me if my RAM is compatible I still need to flash the firmware to get it up to scratch however i RAM compatibility cant even get it past this memory test to do it Any help would be great thanks Regards Steve nbsp

Hey Basically I have compatibility CPU an Acer EM SM EM PM motherboard It currently has an AMD Sempron Processor Socket AM nm technology I m Looking to upgrade this to a decent dual core processor say GHz But Im not sure if there will be any compatibility issues I originally thought that any AM processor would be fine no matter what the GHz I still believe this to be true But after researching I have found that AM processors can be used in AM slots but some motherboards apparently have compatibilty problems or limitations to the processor itself I was wondering if anyone could tell me if AM processors will work in my motherboards AM slot and would there be any drawbacks For example would there be so many drawbacks from using an AM processor in my AM slot that it would actually be worth using an AM processor with the same GHz Finally if you could recommend any processors it would be great Thankyou nbsp

The following were not compatible with my Win 7 prior to the Win 8 upgrade;
1-dvds -does this mean I cannot play commercial videos but can still play my home dvds? How do I get get a codec for commercial dvds?

2-secure boot -I do not know how to rectify this -is this Bios?

3-screen resolution and snap I assume does not apply to my desktop
4-tv -I do not want
5-MSE -I can use Win 8 Defender in its place, I think
6-Avisynth2.5 - I can reinstall but do not know where to get it

If you could briefly point me in the right direction I would be very grateful; especially the first two.
I wonder if these can be done after upgrading?
Thank you

A:compatibility app

1) you need to install a app like WinDVD, PowerDVD, Nero show.
2) is for uEFI BIOS.
3) Update drivers, IF ANY
5) MSE & Win 8 Defender are the same.

A:PSU compatibility

If the PSU is stamped as a ATX PSU, and not some oddly sized OEM style version then you can upgrade it with any ATX type PSU.

Any half decent PSU will have all the connectors you need included. I would recommend you purchase a 500W PSU to give a little additional headroom.

What is your budget for a new PSU and I'll recommend a few.

Hey Peter,
The mainboard will ship with current bios at time of manufacture, the processor may or not come with paste, and you should get cables with your components. I think that case only ships with one fan but has the capacity for five, you should have at least one fan in and one fan out. Check the individual part specifications on Micro Center's or the manufacturer's websites. Asus's MB specs will tell what processors, memory, ect. are compatible with their product. You will also find the extra cables and accessories that are packaged with the individual parts. I would definitely consider a graphics card and an extra HDD for storage. If you plan to use the machine for gaming, video editing or other processor intense applications look into a better cooler to replace the stock Intel one.

My HP Pavilion DV666OSE laptop had a hardware failure two months ago. The original hard drive was a 250GB 5400RPM SATA 1 HDD. This specific kind of HD is not made any longer. My question is this: is a SATA II or SATA III HDD operating at a much higher RPM compatible with my system?  

A:HD compatibility

Based on the HP Pavilion dv6500, dv6600, and dv6700 Entertainment PCs - Maintenance and Service Guide, the following were factory installed hard drives in the series; 2.5-inch hard drives x 9.5-mm, Serial ATA? 250-GB, 5400-rpm? 200-GB, 4200-rpm? 160-GB, 5400-rpm? 120-GB, 5400-rpm? 80-GB, 5400-rpm Any like drive of the 2.5" SATA II/III 7mm/9.5mm variety will work just fine. This includes drives with higher rotational speeds, as well as many 2.5" SATA III SSD (solid state drives). The only issue you may encounter is use of your HP Recovery Media may not function properly, leaving you without an operating system. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Please click the White KUDOS "Thumbs Up" to show your appreciation

Good afternoon, I have been fortunate enough to get my hands on an xw8600 which from my understanding is a s775 motherboard. I was able to get high performance heatsinks gammaxx300 and although are not the oem , I have modded the heatsink clamps so that the fit the mobo. Thanks again for all the prior info but I have just one more question if I may.. Since the x5460's i bought are from a 771 mobo , do I still need to apply the mod stickers to run them on the board or are they just plug and play with this mother board. I did take what you said into consideration about getting the 5450 and the xw6600 but since i had already purchased the 5460's i tried getting a good deal on the mobo which luckily came through. Thanks again in helping me get through this journey.

View Solution.

A:Xw compatibility

If you get the xw8600 QuickSpecs via a Google search you can look up any of the dual-core or quad-core processors for that motherboard and find that they all are LGA771 socket processors..... your X5460 is listed in those QuickSpecs and that is why they will work on your motherboard. That is not a LGA775 motherboard.  Those tab things won't work on these HP motherboards.... the motherboard looks at the sSpec code of the processor, which you cannot change, and if it is not on the approved microcode list it won't fire up (there are some very rare exceptions). You need to read up on my post on how to spoof the motherboard of a xw8600 to think that is has a "Performance" heatsink and fan, I believe, because it is my understanding that the motherboard can tell if you are running processor(s) that are 120W max TDP or hotter, and wants to see the higher performance double fan double tall heatsink over each of those processors. It is all in the forum.... you'll need dig a bit.  You have the key words to search under now.

Ritsune, welcome to the forum. While this is a Hewlett Packard (HP) help forum, you gave enough of the specs for me to be able to find your Dell online.  From what I can see, I believe that the video card should be compatible.  The GT 610 series of video cards doesn't require UEFI in the motherboards instead of a standard BIOS. I am pleased that you trusted this Forum enough to post on it.  If I can be so bold as to make a suggestion, the next time that you buy a new computer, I would like to suggest that you consider HP.  You evidently have come to know how good the support is for their computers or you wouldn't be here. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.
