A:Intel reportedly releasing just two socketed Broadwell CPUs

It often makes you wonder why push Broadwell now, when Haswell has a lot of traction and it's a few months to Skylake. They also included some BGA in the mix for other devices, but pushing a desktop chip seems a bit odd. Given the few months in between them and people unlikely, to drop Haswell unless for lower power systems.

All in all it's negligible power savings, we'd need to obviously see how the integrated graphics fair. It might be a solution for some people, but obviously not everyone is going to see it as a huge importance. It's kinda amusing to me because, I'm looking to replace my mobo / CPU right now. I'd likely sit and wait for Skylake, simply because I'd only be wanting to buy one upgrade. Upgrading is a low priority right now anyways, so there's less inclination to spend right away.

OK, some more information:

The current installation on the Lenovo T400 (Intel 330 SSD ACHI) was done using the "double install" method using Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack Upgrade. It appears the current installation would allow me to use the Sysprep method (I didn't receive an error message when running sysprep.exe), but my concern is that when I boot up the Intel 330 SSD in my new Intel NUC, the validation won't work because the Family Pack uses an Upgrade key. The key has only been used once, so I still have 2 remaining activations, but I'm not sure if that has any relevance to the situation.

Any other recommendations? I am considering manually uninstalling the drivers, doing the swap, and hoping for the best, due to the fact that the current installation sees itself as a clean install, not an upgrade.

A:Move Intel SSD from T400 (Core 2 Duo) to Intel NUC (Broadwell i3)?

How do you know that activation won't work? Did you try? If the bit is already flipped from doing the double upgrade then it should reactivate with the same key since all that is needed for the transfer is to reset the hardware signature in MS Activation servers.

You also have three simultaneous activations at any one time with the Family Pack, and do not forfeit an activation for reinstalling a key to the same or other hardware. If using phone activation because web fails, then when the magic question is asked "How many installs has this copy of Win7 been made" you'd say three instead of one. If rejected again, ask for agent. If agent has problems, talk with MS Customer service who are often more attentive seeing that you get what you pay for.

What's easier than Sysprep is to reimage using a free lightweight app like Macrium Imaging - Windows 7 Help Forums then if Win7 won't boot on the new hardware as expected Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD.

Let us know how this goes.

Advice in a previous thread (many thanks) has got me leaning towards Intel.

So sorry for the silly question, but are they excellent with AMDs too?

I have a X4 965 3.4 GHz and it's running great (for me anyway).

Many thanks to all who give advice/opinions.



A:Intel SSDs - Configured for Intel CPUs or Excellent with AMDs too?

A hard drive is a hard drive. They are not "configured" for any one system or processor or computer. They operate on the SATA standard which all computer platforms comply with also (older drives operate on the PATA standard, but that is an old story!). A new hard drive will work perfectly fine in an Intel or AMD system, on Windows, MAC, Linux, and more.

This is not to be confused with formatting. A hard drive can be formatted specially for different operating systems. And typically new hard drives come preformatted NTFS for Windows. But that does not change the fact that the bare, unformatted drive can work in any system using the same connection standard (SATA, PATA, etc.)

Hope that helps.

I just have a quick question, I know Intel and AMD used to have a different unit for the gigahertz (if you don't understand I mean and intel 3.2 ghz was equal to a amd athlon 64 3200+ 2.2 ghz, thats right isn't it?) Anyways I was wondering if they are equal now that dual cores came out and do you guys in the core 2 duo is better or the amd X2, thats overall. I ahve been looking to get a laptop, so I was just wanted to know if a mobile cpu's ghz is greater than a "regular" cpu and whats the big difference with mobile cpus. Thanks a lot

A:AMD CPUs v Intel's

This comparison is meaningless nowadays. While Older AMD athlon XP series numbering systems were used as comparatives to intel, it is not true with the Athlon 64 FX or Athlon X2 series processors. The number in the CPU is simply a model #.

Core 2 duo is by far a better CPU than the AMD series. But you are comparing apples and oranges. For pure speed, Intel has the advantage (usually) in the athlon 64/ x2 / fx to core2 duo matchups. But there are many other things that come into play such as motherboard archtecture L2/L3 memory on the CPU and FSB handling of which intel and AMD greatly differ in design. There are some cases where AMD comes out ahead.

Mobile processors are designed to be unlocked and to step down to save energy and reduce heat output automatically. They also tend to have lower voltage usage.

In laptops, intel definately has a strong edge. Get a core 2 duo. Stay away from celerons, P4s, and core duos. these are low end budget processors. On the AMD side stay away from semprons, athlon XP (outdated) series.

For a real CPU comparison, go to and checkout their CPU charts.

Obviously between the fact that very few if any of us need 10 cores, and that almost 2,000$ price tag, most of us would probably be more interested in these not as crazy but still really good looking chips:

Personally I had planned my next build around the 6700k but due to other more important bills and whatnot combined with some microcode issues that came about after it's release, I think I may choose one of these bad boys instead

A:intel pentium 4 cpu 3.4 ghz (2 cpus)

Most likely referring to a technology called 'Hyperthreading'. Made by Intel, and introduced into some of their P4 processors, Hyperthreading or HT is essentially a 'virtual' dual-core CPU. The way the processor functions is designed to mimic two separate processors inside a single core processor. If your processor has HT, some system diagnostics will report it as 2 processors, when you only have one. Do not confuse HT with the new Core 2 Duo processors by Intel, as these new chips are true dual-core processors.

Microsoft announced that Intel Skylake CPUs and later will require Windows 10 for continued security updates. So people who are running Windows 7 or 8.1 in their shiny new Skylake rigs are now forced to upgrade to Windows 10 and their Windows 7 and 10 dual-boot setups are now void. Now there's yet another way for Microsoft to shove Windows 10 down peoples' throats. And while Ivy Bridge and Haswell CPUs can technically run Windows 7, there must be workarounds to make them boot that operating system by turning off secure boot, enabling legacy BIOS, etc. With that being said, even Ivy Bridge and Haswell builds are best run on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.

A:CPUs for racing games: AMD or Intel?

Those games you mentioned aren't that taxing so you should be able to easily get a smooth 60fps for $1200. You can use this as a baseline, the components come to $1500 so to meet your budget I'd say get the ASRock Extreme4 mobo instead of the Extreme6, ditch the sound card and BR drive and get the Corsair 400R case instead. The Samsung 830 is only $5 more than the Crucial m4 so I'd get that instead.

The most important part for gaming is the GPU. While the GTX 670 is an excellent card it will be overkill for the games you're running (not sure about Grid 2 obviously), something like a 7850 for $240 or the GTX 570 for $260 will easily run all your games.

I wouldn't worry about upgrade paths, the i5 3570K will last you 3-4 years at least.

Not sure why you're purchasing parts separately but if it's because of cashflow issues, I'd recommend saving up and buying everything together because components usually only ever decrease in price, especially GPUs. But if you're really keen to upgrade something I'd recommend getting an SSD first.

I think this information is incorrect.

Quote from lipe
"All CPU manufacturers make the same silicon wafer for an entire family of cpu's and then just disable some features to sell them for the value market. It's much to expensive to reconfigure the assembly line/process for each different model of CPU in a series of chips.

What Intel is doing here is actually great because instead of leaving the turned off features disabled for good they now will allow you to just pay a small extra for the upgrade rather than forcing you to buy a NEW cpu and lose the money for the old one."

If this is true it would cost them more money to make a dumb downed cpu, of course a dumbed down cpus sell for less, but costs more to make?

A:Any pricing info on Intel's Haswell CPUs?

I very much doubt Intel will change their pricing structure, expect Haswell to come in at similar price points but with IPC improvements, lower power consumption and better integrated GPU.

I wouldn't call SB/IB expensive, given their performance they are reasonably priced compared to the competition. The i7 chips with Hyperthreading and the six core SB-E ones are a bit pricier but normal computer users and gamers won't need that sort of power. 1155 motherboard are around the same price as AM3+ ones too.

You might be able to get something working. It's possible there are vista drivers available that will give you some joy in win 7. The honest truth is that scenario is prone to crashes largely because of the vast difference between how vista and win 7 handle power management.

Honestly I would suggest keeping xp on that machine, as even vista drivers seem to be in short supply for your specific chipset (just basing that on a quick search though)

Did you put a new CMOS battery in? "Changed" means you put another one in, not necessarily a new one.

After installing the must go into the BIOS/Setup...set the correct date/time...and save the changes made.

I've found that...if the dates are changed (erroneously) on new files installed, it can (among other things) prevent Windows from booting. Files get their dates from the system/CMOS clock.

I don t P4 overclocker Greatest ever??? = know if this has been discussed before but I ll post it anyway I know you guys have heard tons about the overclockability of the Northwood A P s I ve seen plenty of reviews getting this chip up to P4 = Greatest overclocker ever??? GHZ and it being stable That is an MHZ overclock for all of you non-mathmaticans This got me wondering what are some of the P4 = Greatest overclocker ever??? most extreme overclocks you guys have seen I ve also seen plenty of overclocks that take the GHZ all the way to GHZ but that s with Liquid Nitrogen and I seriously doubt it was stable at all I want to see overclocks that are stable and accomplished with either air or watercooling but if you see necessary please feel free to blow me away with some crazy overclocks My guess is that the old Celerons were the greatest overclockers ever Anyway if you feel so obliged post your specs and overclock that you got your CPU to I personally have gotten my T-bird up to stably with air cooling Also chime in with your opinion of the greatest overclockable CPU s nbsp

Lets use this thread to make a list of usefull tools which overclockers use.

Prime 95- Cpu and memory stability test
Memtest- Memory Stability
HD tune- hard drive benchmark
Everest- Multifunction hardware analysis. Great memory benchmark.
Sis Soft Sandra- Multifunction hardware analysis
Core Temp- CPU temperature (measures top of die, unlike other monitors)
CPU Z- reports cpu and ram speeds.
GPU Z- for graphics card speed reporting.
Memset- For advanced ram timing and subtiming tweaking.

Open for suggestions.

A:Tools for the Overclocker

I suggest 3dmark06 as well for a late machine. I've personally gotten through prime95 and some other programs fine, gone through 3dmark06 and bsod.

There may have been a power surge while you were gone if the pc was left plugged in. If you have another computer available, try making a bootable flash drive to run tests. For Hard Drive:SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use
RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Put them on seperate drives if possible as they will delete all data on the flash drive.

i have a compact preserio pc, about 8 yrs old, I am unable to remove a disk. the tray opens, and disk stays inside. I have opened the front cover, can see the disk, can move it back a bit, but doesn't seem to be enough space to grab it with pliers. can you assist. is it a matter of removing the entire tray. thanks.

A:CD disc stuck in 8-year-old Compaq Presario desktop tray

hi. I fixed the problem. my fault. I didn't place the disk on the tray properly when loading. my pc told me that by not completely closing, but in a seniors moment, I automatically pushed the tray in. this cause the disk to slide over, and past the spindle. I could see the disk, but couldn't grasp it, till I had an eureka moment. I wrapped some sticky side out duct tape around the blade of a long knife, being careful to secure the end towards the handle with sticky side down duct tape. then I simply guided the knife under the disk, with sticky side up under the disk, and removed it. another use for duct tape. usually duct tape is placed on my mouth. thanks for all of your assistance, as I didn't see the same solution already posted. but I am happy anyway.message edited by bobmackie

A:Novice overclocker in need of advice

You have done a good job so far!!

I would advise more case cooling if you haven't already done so already as overclocking heats more than just the processor up!!

I personally run plenty of extra fans (9 at last count) and have found it possible to squeeze a little more out of my system!!

A slot cooler close to your graphics card is a good example, but don't put one near the gpu fan as slot coolers suck air out only, i have mine on the back of my graphics card!!

I hope this info is of some use to you!!


Let me know what mobo you have and i will see if i can help further!!

hi there.
i had an nforce 630i before i got this pathetic excuse of a motherboard. i could clock my intel e8400 upto 3.7Gz without a altering vcore(was locked in the board sadly). sadly, my 630i died on me and i bought asus's p5ql-cm that comes with a g43 northbridge chipset (worst idea ever).
alrit, here is my problem,
the g43 wont let me go past 3.2ghz.. the irony here is.. this board has options to increase vcore but still am not able to go past 3.2ghz.
i read reviews prior to buyin this crappy board and learnt that it was a mediocre overclocker. but 3.0 to 3.2 is not even an overclock.. yeah?.. abysmal.

any suggestions what could be wrong?

my specs..
intel wolfdale e8400
corsair tx650 psu.. with 52amps in the 12 volt rail
xfx 9800gtx+ (oh yeah.. i almost forgot..i cant clock this guy too. i used get 830 core.. but now.. barely 775..)

I've read every post I could find on this so I'm sorry to ask another dumb question but here goes.

I created an access database (volunteer work) which has an autoincrement field to issue numbers to animals taken in at our shelter. My 'boss' (also a volunteer) wants this simple autoincrement changed to a value which begins with the two digit year and then has 4 digits, starting with 0001 which will increment sequentially and restart at 0001 with the new calendar year. Therefore, records will start with 10-0001, 10-0002, etc for this year and 11-0001, 11-0002 for next year.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Most effective ways of cooling for a first time overclocker?

If you're not interested in replacing HS/Fan because of warranty issues, then you really should reconsider any serious OC. And I'm fairly certain OCing would void your warranty anyway.
You can always bump it up a little and watch the temps each time until they start to get out of hand or system stability starts degrading. Sometimes the stock cooling works good.

My concern is that all others that came before will become so expensive or not available ie Ivy Bridge stuff that the systems we have now - quite adequate for what I and I suspect a lot of other folks use will become defunct as and when the parts become so scarce and the OS's not support them.

I have an installation folder on my main machine(Windows 7) with all my software. I have repeatedly run into issues connecting odd devices to my shared folder. This time I have installed Windows 10 Technical Preview (on a different machine) and don't understand why it tells me I can't access my own machine. After all these years, you would think user friendly would be a reality. It seems to be a coin toss as to which machines will connect. I hate never knowing I can access my own machine without issue. Here I am trying to install applications but yet I can't get to my storage location.

What is the secret to sharing your machine, so that anyone on the same network can access shared folders?

Edit: I always turn on "Network Discovery" and "File and Print Sharing".

set trust localhost and your lan ip's, eg

then add two rules for only the PRIVATE PROFILE

inbound allow tcp/udp from to any for ports 137-139,445
outbound allow tcp/udp from any to for ports 137-139,445
I use a much more complicate scheme in reality to enforce known vs unknown devices and to segregate WiFI from wired access, but that's just me.

Than I integrated latest intel USB 3.0 and storage drivers into boot.wim and install.wim using DISM tool and there is still no success - the installer can't find Windows 7 installation pendrive. There are disk partitions and mounted boot.wim in drop-down list, but even USB mouse doesn't work.

PS I'm sure that it is USB issue - not storage. I added storage drivers "just in case".
PS2 I'm sure that USB 3.0 and storage drivers are correct.

It looks like Windows 7 can't even see USB 2.0 ports.
Any ideas?

Hello everyone. I was wondering if there is a way to make Outlook 2010 scroll as new messages are received? I upgraded from 2003, and in the older version the incoming messages pushed the older messages down on my screen. This made it easier to see when a new message arrived. Right now I find myself constantly using the scroll wheel on my mouse to see if a new message has arrived. Thanks!

A:Outlook 2010 scroll as new messages arrive

Same problem... I used to be able to (Outlook 2007 and prior) just glance at the screen to see if I had new emails. In Outlook 2010, though, it's not doing that and I find that I have to scroll up just to check. It's frustrating thinking I have no new email and then scroll up and there are all my new messages that I didn't realize I had... very annoying. Now I am constantly scrolling up every 5 minutes just to check if there are new messages. Ridiculous.

Unless I am connected to the internet any messages I send do not arrive. They go to the outbox OK, and they disappear, ie go to sentbox, when I connect, but they fail to arrive and fail to return any error message. Currently I connect and then write my messages. This works. I would normally write all my messages, put them ALL in outbox, and then at a convienient time connect and then send. I also have noticed that even if I'm connected messages coming in only arrive if I click the send/recieve button. Maybe there is a connection??

This is the first and last time I will ever buy an Acer product. I picked up this Acer desktop at my local Walmart and had no idea just how small the CPU was. It has a notebook type Intel 1.6 CPU that will not even allow me to stream live videos. The worse part of all is that I cannot even upgrade it. It seems to be fused to the motherboard. Otherwise my brother in law could pop in a better CPU plus addition RAM sticks. It is terribly slow also, and sometimes freezes up. I am furious that I cant stream live video, but more upset about the non upgradable motherboard.

Various different bugchecks attached:



A problem occurred in the NTFS file system driver, Ntfs.sys. This critical file is used to read and write all NTFS drives.



An exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.

This bugcheck is generally related to a video driver issue.

Ensure you have the latest video card drivers. If you are already on the latest video card drivers, uninstall and install a version or a few versions behind the latest to ensure it's not a latest driver only issue. If you have already experimented with the latest video card driver and many previous versions, please give the beta driver for your card a try.



A severe memory management error occurred.

This indicates that invalid system memory has been referenced.

Usual causes are a bug in a device driver, hardware related memory issues, corrupt NTFS volume, anti-virus software.

Overall, here's what we should do:
1. check physical connections to the drive (sata cables, etc).

2. chkdsk:


start>search bar>type cmd right click and select run as admin

Elevated CMD should now be opened, type the following:

chkdsk x: /r

x implies your drive letter, so if your hard drive in question is letter c, it would be:

chkdsk c: /r

Restart system and let chkdsk run.

4. If hard drive diagnostics pass, Memtest:



Download Memtest86+ here:


Which should I download?

You can either download the pre-compiled ISO that you would burn to a CD and then boot from the CD, or you can download the auto-installer for the USB key. What this will do is format your USB drive, make it a bootable device, and then install the necessary files. Both do the same job, it's just up to you which you choose, or which you have available (whether it's CD or USB).

How Memtest works:

Memtest86 writes a series of test patterns to most memory addresses, reads back the data written, and compares it for errors.

The default pass does 9 different tests, varying in access patterns and test data. A tenth test, bit fade, is selectable from the menu. It writes all memory with zeroes, then sleeps for 90 minutes before checking to see if bits have changed (perhaps because of refresh problems). This is repeated with all ones for a total time of 3 hours per pass.

Many chipsets can report RAM speeds and timings via SPD (Serial Presence Detect) or EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles), and some even support changing the expected memory speed. If the expected memory speed is overclocked, Memtest86 can test that memory performance is error-free with these faster ... Read more
