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.)

Here's the situation. I have this old mITX computer I built a few years ago that I'd like to hook up to Dad's big-screen TV so he can Skype from his living-room. Problem is, the computer is VGA only and his TV is HDMI only. The MoBo has just one PCI (not PCIe) slot with a maximum output of 75watts.

I tried a PCI video card with HDMI output, but the slot couldn't drive the card. Didn't even detect it.

I believe DVI uses less power (the cards are definitely cheaper), and I could just use a simple DVI-to-HDMI cable. A native HDMI port would be better. As long as it works, I don't care. But w/o an external power input, the card can't draw more than 75watts from the PCI slot.

Anyone know of a card that fits this very specific bill? Thx.

ADDENDUM: PC only has a tiny 300watt PSU.

A:I need a PCI (not PCIe) DVI card (either <75w or w/power input)

Check this one out: Zotac GeForce GT 610
It is a PCI Card (non express) that has DVI / VGA / HDMI. It is also a Low Profile and requires a 300w power supply or higher. It looks like it should work with your situation.

Hello! I want to buy a Geforce Gtx 980 4GB gddr5 for my pc but I dont know if my motherboard can support it, how can I tell? my mother board is B85-G41 PC mate>, My procesor is i7 4770 3.40GHz. RAM is 16GB 1600MHz and PSU is 500W.

A:Video Card Support

From the information you provided, yes the GeForce GTX 980 will work very well with your MSI B85-G41 motherboard. You may want to keep an eye on your PSU though. 500W is the minimum system power requirement (according to the Nvidia website) to run the GeFore GTX 980. If you Overclock the GPU, it may run into some issues with the draw power coming from the PSU, and could cause it to go into an overload.

I am thinking about purchasing this motherboard,

But I am not sure how to tell if a video card is compatible.

Here is the card I want,

I realize the PCIe 3.0 will fit to the motherboard, but I do not know if it will be compatible.

I do not understand the difference betweeen DDR3, DDR5 and GDDR5.

Thanks for help!

A:What video cards will support this?

Yes, those two items will be compatible with each other.

DDR3 & DDR5 are VRAM types and GDDR5 is a motherboard RAM identification.

For the future, you can go >>here<< and all your parts to see if there will be any issues with compatibility.

But keep in mind that there can be other compatibility issues such as the graphics card being too long to fit in the case.

Hello everybody!
I have on my motherboard ( DFI LanPartyUT nF4 SLI-DR ) 2 PCIe x16 type sockets, meaning each x8 if SLI, one x16 and the other x2 if it's only one videocard inserted.
My problem is the chipset cooler which doesnt allow me to insert properly my videocard in the PCIe x16 socket (non-SLI). So I am wondering: what will happen (as performance) if I move the jumper for SLI, but using only the second socket which will have only x8 this way?
Thank you!

Makes no difference, you will not really see a performance difference between a 16x slot and an 8x slot. Most motherboard generally run cards when in dual mode (SLI/CFX) in 8x speed on both.

It will not matter unless you are running a Dual GPU card in an 8x slot.

A:Dual AMD W7000 for 8 monitors - No support from AMD

Ok so if I am reading correctly this is the card you purchased correct?

Now then, you have two of these running in one machine im assuming X-Fired together so you can output on 8 displays. So the way im reading this (please correct my if im wrong) you have 8 display port adapters going to 8 different monitors (Display port to HDMI, DVI, or what?).

So here are my questions:
Which monitors have dropped off (Which card or both and which ports)?
Do you have the latest Catalyst for the Workstation cards running?
What version of windows are you running?

Here's a couple of quick things you can do to try and get all 8 working and ill see if I can't figure out the issue with you:

Try disabling eyefinity and running every monitor as an independent display.
Try rebuilding eyefinity in the control center and see if it detects all 8 monitors

One thing is that display port is designed to hold more than one monitor per port, im guessing you are using the DVI connectors since they came with it. My advice would be instead of using every port on each card, buy some of the dual display port adapters and use only the top card to run eyefinity, using 2 cards for multiple displays tends to run into issues at times especially when connecting such an extreme amount of monitors.

A:Which Graphics Card would my PC (support) be able to handle?

Upgrading from a GTX 260, I'm not sure I would select a 660 or 760. Unless I was going for DirectX 11 capability. The 670 requires a 500W power supply and the 770 requires a 600W power supply. So while DirectX 11 would be an upgrade, if you are wanting a large performance increase, you will need a larger power supply than 460W. Judging by the dimensions of the GTX 260, I would say the longer graphics cards (11 inches) would physically fit. Speaking of the GTX 260, nVidia specifies a 500W is required. I know the specifications allow for headroom, so it is your call whether you want to risk a card that calls for 500W.

4 month old Lenovo H430 running WIN 8, Intel I3 3.4ghz w/1 PCIe 2.0 slot. Upgraded to 8GB Corsair RAM, 550W Cooler Master PS, Nvidia GForce GTX 550 Ti. GPU worked fine for 2 months until I updated to latest drivers (as of 2/20/13). After driver update and reboot I get NO VIDEO. Disconnected power to GPU, switched back to integrated VGA, reboot and it works fine. Uninstalled everything Nvidia related. Used Driver Sweeper to make sure. Reinstalled GPU. Same results. Warranted GPU. Reinstall. Same results. Called Lenovo CS and decided PCIe was bad. Warranted MB. Installed GPU on NEW MB. Same results. Entered BIOS. Set integrated VGA to default. Connected power to GPU. Boot up and integrated video works. Attempt to install GPU drivers and it fails to recognize the GPU. Removed GPU, installed neighbors AMD GPU. Same results. This is obviously a software issue since 2 different MBs are failing to recognize anything in the PCIe slot. Please advise.

I have a dell sc 440 server with a PCIe x8, PCIe x4, PCIe x1, and PCI slot but NO PCIe x16 slot.
Some say PCIe x8, and PCIe x4 are only for RAID and SCSI drives and will not even recognize a video card. I just need a card that is capable of 3D graphics, HD resolution and Direct X 9.0. Does one exist that will fit in any of these slots? I have searched and am totally confused what the truth is here.

A:Is there a PCIe x8 video card?

I know of someone that actually cut the PCB of a graphics card from x16 down to x1. They did this because they only had a x1 card slot and needed the cards processing capability without needing a lot of bandwidth.

PCIe x16 has pinouts to sense the presence of x1, x4, x8 and x16 functionality.
PCIe x8 has pinouts to sense the presence of x1, x4, and x8 functionality.
PCIe x4 has pinouts to sense the presence of x1, and x4, functionality.
Do you see a pattern? Basically if the card fits the slot, it should work. Some slots are even open on the end allowing for x16 cards to fit in lower bandwidth slots. Some slots are even long enough for x16 cards but only pinned for x8 functionality.

When connecting in Crossfire and SLI, some motherboards will drop the graphics cards from x16 functionality down to x8 functionality.

After looking at these thoughts; I see no reason why you couldn't get any graphics card to work, if you are willing to do a little modification.

i want to try and crossfire two ati radeon 5770 cards on a MOBO the has one PCIe 2.0 and one PCIe 1.0 will both cards default to 1.0

A:PCIe 2.0 to PCIe 1.0 Crossfire will there be any issues

You might need to be more specific.
I don't think I've heard of a motherboard that natively takes a 2.0 spec lane (500MB/sec upload/dl per lane) and splits it to 1.0 (250MB/sec upload/dl per lane) - that is usually the function of an onboard bridge chip (or lane extender) such as Nvidia's NF200.

Now, taking your comments at face value -although if you could post the motherboard vendor/model it would certainly help- then it is likely that the PCI-E lanes would be 1.0 spec.
The bright side is that, the HD5770 doesn't use enough bandwidth to make any difference whether the lanes are 1.0 or 2.0 (or 3.0 -soon to be added), unless the slot is labelled PCIe x16 but is actually x4 electrical (or lower).

I believe I am talking about quot fake quot raid here To the point I am building a file server using FreeNAS with a PC thats over a few years old I d say around - years RAID best PCIe, option? PCI and cards, wanting to set up a RAID function with this I ve learned after a bit of reading that there are such things as fake raid where the processor actually handle where the data goes and this is fine as these RAID cards, PCI and PCIe, best option? also seem to be much cheaper I m using a bit older mobo can post model later upon request that has SATA ports for RAID or I am considering getting a card to support up to HDDs Here are options I ve been looking at Syba PCI Express SATA II x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX Adaptec RAID SA - Storage controller RAID - Channel - SATA- low profile - MBps - RAID JBOD - PCI Express x SYBA SY-PCI PCI Low Profile SATA II Gb s Controller Card Adaptec -R SA PCI Express X -Port SATA GBS Low-profile Host RAID Controller Now I realize Amazon com doesnt give good descriptions Also is there a RAID function build into FreeNAS I cannot seem to get window shares to work with that so I still need to work that out using nbsp

A:RAID cards, PCI and PCIe, best option?

Here are options I've been looking at.

Syba PCI Express SATA II 4 x Ports RAID Controller Card SY-PEX40008

Adaptec RAID 1430SA - Storage controller (RAID) - 4 Channel - SATA-300 low profile - 300 MBps - RAID 0, 1, 10, JBOD - PCI Express x4

SYBA SY-PCI40026 PCI Low Profile SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Adaptec 2240900-R 1430SA PCI Express X4 4-Port SATA 3GBS Low-profile Host RAID ControllerClick to expand...

Adaptec has been the leader for decades and using the CARD avoids the 'fake-raid' software implementation. One big advantage is the card completes the operation without the assistance of the CPU.

Once you opt for the raid-controller card, you (imo) really ought to go with
SCSI attached devices which give you hotplug support and dynamic raid recovery.[x]

Be carefull: Even Microsoft does not recommend attempting to boot from a Raid.
Raid is a server function to avoid a single point of failure, and even with Raid-1 or Raid-10, you still need a backup system.

[x]The NAS Raid-x is frequently SCSI internally for these reasons

Is this a small form factor or a regular width case? It appears that you need an AGP compatible card but the form factor of the case will make a difference in the card you can get. Also, you might need to upgrade the power supply to match the graphics card but that depends on which card you get.

I have this Gateway box that I've had in storage for about 6 months. I brought it out and want to connect it to my HD tv.

It used to be connected to a 22" samsung monitor through a Nvidea Geforce 9500 GT card in the PCI Express Slot.

I connected to my TV by HDMI via the onboard ATI graphics.

I removed the Geforce card and uninstalled the nvidea drivers.

Now I'm having trouble with audio, don't have any, can you help?

A:Gateway Box Moved, Pulled PCIe Video Card, Now No Sound

The card has hdmi out? Look if the card has an audio in place on it, you probably need to run a line from your sound card/onboard sound to the video card. Alternatively you could run a line out of your sound card to your tv - although tv's I'm familiar with only have audio in with a VGA or DVI connection, not hdmi (which typically carries audio on its own).

I have a Targa computer for repair which was giving no signal to the screen from the Pciex card, if I connected to the onboard adapter everything worked fine.
I replaced the card with a new one but the new card is not recognised by the pc and no signal to the screen, I tried a third card but the same applies. If I connected the monitor and booted up with either card in it would boot into windows but the new card is not detected.
I am beginning to think that the PCIex slot has failed which means a new mobo, the mobo is an ASUS IPN73-BA.
Do you thonk that the slot has failed or should I look at something else before I condemn the mobo.

Get the video cards measurements and apply them to the inside case, where the PCI-e card slots are. Keep in mind that you will need to take up 2 card slots for 1 video card. If the mini-tower case has a standard ATX power supply any good brand (Antec, Corsair) 500 watt or better power supply will work

More than likely not. Most board that were born it the 65nm process era, will not support the newer 45nm CPU. In many cases, newer boards intended for 45nm CPUs are backwards compatible with the older chips, but I know that doesn't help you.

The E6700 (Pent) is a very new offering. It usually won't even run in boards that accept the E6300 & E6500 "Pentium Dual Core", (the new 45nm CPUs), without a BIOS update.

Here's the CPU support page for your board, and no's the answer;

the board's CPU compatibility doesn't even extend to the E6x20 series of C2D. These were the 1333 FSB models.

Simple question really;

I'm about to purchase a BTX-chassi and a BTX-motherboard. The motherboard has a regular PCIe x16-slot.

I do also have a graphics card with the PCIe x16 interface, from my old ATX-chassi.

Can I simply pop the card in the PCIe-slot, or does the BTX-structure require something else like an inverted card specifically made for the BTX?

A:Does PCIe x16-cards fit in BTX-chassis as well?

i'm pretty sure it works all the same, with the slot being the same distance from the chassis itself as with an ATX.

Greetings! to all techie out there,

I just bought a new ATI Radeon HD 5670 1 GB GDDR5 and installed it on ASROCK ConRoe1333-D667 R1.0 motherboard but it has no display (The GPU Fan is working).

I already configured the BIOS option "Primary Graphics Adapter = PCI Express" but still has no display.

When I tried to install it on Dell Dimension 5150 - Pentium 4 motherboard it works. Whats the problem? Power Supply? x 16 PCI-e version (2 or 1. x ?). According to wiki, almost all 2.0 PCIe graphics card are backward compatible to 1.x

ASROCK Motherboard: r1.0

Graphics card:

DELL Dimension:,39051163,39096665p,00.htm

Additional Details;

400 Watts PSU (ordinary PSU that comes with the CPU case)

2 GB of RAM ( 2 x 1 GB)
250 GB - 7200 rpm HDD SEAGATE
1 CPU case fan attached

A:No Display - ATI Radeon HD 5670 1GB GDDR5 PCIe

Did you have a graphics card on this ASRock board prior to the HD 5670? If yes, then you must uninstall all the previous display drivers before putting in the new card. It's also recommended to uninstall any onboard video drivers which you may have.

Hey techspot forums,

I am not sure if this is a problem, but aren't the Asus P5N-D motherboards' PCIE x16 slots supposed to run at 5000 MHz, rather then 2500? Mine runs at a stock 2500 MHz, and can be overclocked to 3000 which is the max.

I have read somewhere that since the slots are PCIE 2.0 it doubles from 2500 to 5000. But I have checked in GPUz and both slots are at PCIE x16 2.0.

Nvidia System tools report that the slot runs at 3000 max, once i have adjusted the base FSB from 100 to 120. So could the multiplier not be working properly for the PCIE bus?

Well time to look at the Cisco Linksys E3000 instead. As that's where I headed for. Why over the Easter Weekend I was helping my brother-in-law setup his free Cisco Linksys 802.1n from Cox Communcations. He and I have Cox both have the same plan. But I didn't see what the fact that his wireless 802.11n downloads was very quick. Even though be both have Power Boost, his E2000 is quicker than Belkin N+. Wow! An on the Gizmo site online there is a short review on E3000 in 802.11n mode and it's quick. There is EnGenius ESR9850 that's suppose to be showing 700mbps on LAN to WAN and WAN to LAN on wired connections where P2P is showing 19,721 max connections instead of the norm 200 max simulations connections. As 802.11n is over 100mbps too.This is 10/100/1000mbps the NPU is all-in-one SOC meaning the wireless chipset is integrated into the chip. NPU speed is 384MHz and the onboard RAM is 32MB. Online this wireless 802.11n router is only $49 to $59 on some sites. Belkin N+ V2 uses this setup, but looks like some other companies have spiked up the firmware or hardware to get max connections speeds.

After two years of owning first Belkin N+ it has served me very well. But like all PCB wireless routers they tend to degrade and start acting up after heavy duty usage like I have place this router though. Plus these newer routers seem to have full speed ahead not like 2008, 2009 where they seem to be half speed. 2010 wireless routers not all but those I've mentions are set to the max instead of mid-way! Gig connection is suppose to be 600-700mbps not 100-200mbps.

Anyway, unless it is in a pretty well ventilated place you'll want to avoid unsealed batteries, which include most car batteries, because of hydrogen gas buildup (and perhaps H2S).

Depending on the battery you may (probably will) lose the ability to correctly monitor how much life you have left in the battery when running the electronics.

Not my problem, but one I have noticed many, many times lately on these pages. So many people report 'unable to boot from install CD' or DVD, despite having the boot order correct. Can some experienced repair technician throw light on what is going on - are CD/DVD devices becoming quite quickly unable to support booting?

And what may be the cause? Is there some change in recent motherboards, is XP/Vista/Win7 sending out updates which interfere with motherboard drivers? Do devices simply fail quite quicky these days? .... or what?

A:Do many CD/DVD drives fail to support boot these days?


Here's what the issues have been:

Written disc (copied) that is not being picked up by the standard laptop CD/DVD Drive (normal I find)
Faulty CD/DVD Drive, that can read in Windows, but cannot boot BootCDs (common I find)
Users not selecting either "press any key to boot from CD" or not selecting the Fn key that changes to CD boot (not exactly Bios config)
Scratched or dirty discs (and CD/DVD Drives)
Incorrect jumper setting (or cabling) on older ATA (IDE Connected) CD/DVD Drives
There may be a whole range of others (and a comprehensive list) listed on other sites of possible issues

BUT: When the computer was bought (brand new) it booted from the CD/DVD Drive (even new and old computers)
Therefore something (as above) has changed since, ie its not MS updates or firmware drivers, or anything like that. Although I agree that parts don't last as long as they did in the past, ie most 486 computers still work, ironically

I have a Shuttle SN78SH7 with the latest SN78S10Y BIOS. I had been using a wired USB KB, which works fine. I recently switched to a wireless KB, but it does not work during POST or the grub2 menu. It works fine though once the OS boots up.

I understand I should try enabling "Legacy USB support" in the BIOS, but I can't find that in the menu. Can someone point me to the right setting?

-Thanks, zog

A:How enable "USB Legacy support" on SN78SH7 Shuttle

You need to keep Legacy USB support turned off and use a USB to PS2 keyboard adapter

heya guys, I'm half way through building my new system I currently have the Asrock M3A790GXH/128M motherboard and i am looking to buy the Athlon II quad core 620 as I can get it pretty cheap.

My question is on the asrock site it says "Support for Socket AM3 processors: AMD Phenom? II X4 / X3 (except 920 / 940) and Athlon II X4 / X3 / X2 processors"

However in the cpu support list it says that it does support it?

Can any one clear this up for me?

The asrock K10nSLI board says it does not support the athlon 620 on its current bios, however this is not true.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :slurp:


Just solved my own problem haha, feel pretty stupid for asking now it says phenom not athlon!

A:Asrock M3A790GXH/128M support Athlon II quad 620 chip?

The Athlon II X4 620 should work fine on that ASRock.

We are a rafting company that sells our photos on cd. Currently we have been simply burning to the one on-board burner. This creates down time while each disk burns. Each burn is a unique project and not a duplicate. Can I hook up 5 external burners to a well equipped PC and burn 5 unique projects at the same time? If it is possible what should the PC be equipped with in terms on memory, processor and anything else? Thanks for the help.

I have a Adaptec 1205sa sata host controller. I added a 2 tb hitachi to my system but the host controller does not recognize it. Adaptec has not bothered to update drivers since '03. I found this thread that deals mainly with vista support for the 1205. The last post states once updated 1tb support will be added. However i am unsure as to what i need to dl from silicon image. Can someone explain with easy step by step instructions how to update the drivers/bios for the 1205 using the updates on Silicon Image's site? Thanks..

Surely someone has encountered this situation w/ Dell Financial. As big as they are and as many of us that there are,the chances are atleast 50-50. So I'll ask in a diff'rent way:
Anyone care to share their tips, numbers and or experiences sufferred from DELL with respect to master p/w requests, change of ownership requests and generally any info we as a group may find usefull ? Like,for example,the pertinent info from a live support chat (number codes ) not the entire chat but the meat of the request..

Hello guys, i'm having a bit of trouble with my Sound Blaster Xfi Fatal1ty titanium, the issue is as follows:

There's a huge heat sink that prevents the card fitting properly into the single pcie x1 slot on my board, so what i rly would like to know is if it is possible to have it working on a pcie x4, risk free ofc. I've done a few searches on this forum and i've read it is possible but i rly want to be sure before doing anything. Another doubt i have is if i need to make any changes on my bios cuz i'm not sure if pcie x1 and pcie x4 slots work on the same power specs.

Thx to all in advance

My problem is almost identical except for one detail. When I have something plugged into my PCIe slot my comp won't boot and it just "ticks" at me. The "ticks" sound like memory check ticks you normaly hear at boot but they dont stop and it never tries to boot. Any ideas?

does anyone know if there is an optimum power setting for the pcie 2.0 slots? I have 3x HD 4830 (i found out are really 4850's) but i think the max power draw is the same on both, anyway my pcie slots are defaulted to provide 25w and the rest comes via the 6 pin power connector. is there a optimum setting for the power provided from the pcie bus? or does it not make a difference? ** the pcie slots can be set from 0w - 255w**.


A:PCIe power draw

The PCI-E slots provide 75W each and not 25W, assuming we are talking about PCI-E 2.0 slots here. So an x8 PCI-E 2.0 slot is equivalent to a PCI-E 1.1 x16 slot, and thus has the same electrical characteristics. The maximum power draw for a 2.0 x16 slot is 150W.

And no, there is no optimum setting AFAIK.

How to test PCIe slots I had a brand new video card installed and working Configured it and started using it to see what it was capable of as far as D applications slots? How test PCIe to After about an hour the card was destroyed LEDs and fan still worked but my PC could no longer detect the card in the slot I tried to force it to detect checked BIOS tried the second PCIe slot on same board but the vid card was already defective by then Fortunately I was able to exchange the vid card for a new one I also upgraded my PSU as someone suggested that the How to test PCIe slots? PSU might have been caused the How to test PCIe slots? damage to the vid card Now before I just throw in the new vid card and PSU I want to cover all of my bases as I won t be able to get another free exchange if this vid card also gets fried So I ve been doing some researching and I d feel a lot more comfortable if I could somehow test verify whether the PCIe slots on my mainboard are functioning as they should be So can anyone recommend some simple PCIe slot test that I can perform at home with minimal tooling Perhaps there are some software tools for monitoring voltages currents or maybe I can find a cheap voltmeter around here Equipment is difficult for me to find here but the local technicians are very lowly skilled knowledgeable and careless about handling and ESD Any suggestions Thanks nbsp
