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.)

Quote found here -

The MDT GT 610, like all GT 610s, does still have two discreet outputs. In order to connect more than two displays, special integrated hardware splits one or both outputs which show up as a super-wide display in the control panel. When you connect three 1080p monitors, your control panel will show that you have one 1920x1080 and one 3840x1080 display (rather than 3 1080p monitors or a single 5760x1080 screen like in Surround.) Once you open and set the MDT EZY software, the pair of displays that show up as one in the NVCP will then act just like two individual monitors- windows will fit each screen individually and snap to the proper positions.Click to expand...

Hello again all,

As I was messing around at, I have found many various customizable laptops that I found online. However, it all boils down to the graphics card. I have a choice between 6150, 7200, and 7400. Now which one should I chose and how different are the performance between each card? I need help asap as college is starting soon and I want to get one as soon as possible.

A:Geforce Go 6150 or Geforce Go 7200 or Geforce Go 7400

The 7400 is the best option, since it's fastest, but you may not need a faster video card if you don't do activities that require a fast video card. This link may be helpful.

Looking at these cards there is a bit of a price difference, the MSI is ?479 and the ASUS is ?299.
The MSI does have better specifications than the ASUS so in performance I would go with the MSI. Although for value for money the ASUS is very good! So if I was just going for performance I would choose the MSI but if I wanted value for money then the ASUS is the one I would go for!

Hi, Im thinking about buying a new graphic card and found a card i liked named ASUS GeForce 9400 GT. On the website where they sell it its located under the tab Nvidia, yet if I check out Nvidias prducts page their 9400 GT looks completely different from this one. Then I check out ASUS page and there I find it. So what's the difference between ASUS and Nvidia, why do their cards have the same name, and why does the website im buying it from put the ASUS card under Nvidia products????

A:Difference between ASUS GeForce and Nvidia GeForce???

Nvidia designs and makes the GeForce line of graphics chips. Other manufacturers such as Asus, evga, BFX, PNY and others then use the Nvidia chips in their graphics card designs.

The 4600 is a better performer. The 5500 is just a warmed over 5200. You'd get better performance from a 5700 or 5700LE.

Well, I'm looking at upgrading again, and in the interest of finances, I'm upgrading the video and keeping the rest of the system the same. I'm currently running an ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe w/ Athlon XP 3200+ w/ 1GB of PC3200 ram. I'm looking at replacing my BFG GeForce 5700 Ultra with something a bit more modern and keeping the price low. I've found a 6600 (may be and LE version). The GPU and memory clocks are lower and the pixels/sec isn't as high, but the 6600 has support for Shader 3.0 and has the ability to process MPEG2 video on card which will help watching DVD's and with my TV card also. Plus there's the support for processing HD Video. I'm just looking for people's opinion on whether this is a good upgrade or not before jumping in. Fell free to say whatever. Thanks!

Which of those two card's would be better for very light gaming (Some 04 and 05 Sports Games) and other than that just regular XP use? My old FX 5200 was a 128mb card with a 200mhz clock speed and the new 6100 has 425mhz clock speed. Any Help?

A:Integrated Geforce 6100 or old Geforce FX 5200

If you have lots of system RAM, then the 6100 is probably the best choice. You'd probably need at least a gig of RAM though.

If you only have 256, or 512, the 5200 might be the better choice. Best idea is to test your games with both setups, and see which plays better.

I recently bought a PCI (no e) graphics card the fx 5500, desiring a third monitor. I was told that i did not need SLI or Xfire as i did not intend to use both cards for games, i just wish for more display space while programming.

Unfortunately, the FX5500 only works whilst the gtx260 is unplugged from the power, otherwise the system with the displays connected to the gtx260 with some basic driver, even if the gtx260 is disabled and the fx5500 is working properly.

If both the cards are 'installed' in device manager at any one time, the last one to be installed will say that it has problems error code 43.

Any advice on how to get a third monitor up?


A:Mixing it up Geforce GTX 260 and a Geforce FX 5500

Either get an ATI card or if it has to be Nvidia, something from the 6200 and up. The problem is that while your are attempting to use 2 Nvidia cards they are using different drivers.

The FX 5xxx series doesn't have a Windows 7 driver (WDDM 1.1) and has to rely on the last Vista driver (a beta WDDM 1.0), and it basically cancels out the driver for the 260. The only way to use 2 non WDDM 1.1 cards is if they are a different manufacturer; ATI-Nvidia, Nvidia-ATI, etc. Same thing will happen with ATI cards if you try and run anything from the X19xx series and down with anything from the HD 2xxx and up.

(Unless you're getting either of the other cards dirt cheap)

The fx 5600 isn't a very good card and it won't be very future-proof...

Do you plan to keep the card for a long time, or upgrade in 6 months (or so)? And do you plan to play a lot of games which will be released during 2004, or mostly older games?

All of this will help determine what cards might be best suited to your needs...

This is a simple question.

Which card is better? GTX 260 or 9800 GTX+.

I'm going to be using Dual-SLI with these cards. So I will be buying two.

I want to be able to play high if possible.

I know the 9800 GTX+ can do Tri-SLI, which would make it better if I choose to Upgrade, but if the GTX 260 can out perform the 9800 GTX+ in Dual then I will go with that.

If anybody knows the comparison of these 2 cards, I would appreciate your comment.

A:GeForce 9800GTX+ vs GeForce GTX 260

Just to clear some things up. In which I know you didnt do purposely or may not know. SLI= two nvidia based cards...dual sli would be 4 cards. As I see it or normally reffered to quad SLI "Aghhem, anyway on to your question. The 260 reminds me of the old 8800 gts vs gtx/ultra situation. When the 8800 gts was "sli'd," it would perform better than the 8800 gtx in some benchmarks. With that being said, get two 260's for sli. Go to town, have fun.

I cant find the thread where someone posted the reasons why. might wanna google around first and read some reviews of the chosen motherboard.

also it might be better value to run two 7800GTs on SLI isntead of two GTX's on sli as the performance increase going from on GTX to two isnt prolly much

You can use any video card that has a PCI-Express interface (from either ATI or nVidia).

Your motherboard only has "SLI" in its name to indicate that it's capable of SLI mode. It will work with ATI cards.

Would you please take a look at the Nvidia's specs for their GTX 450 and 460 graphics card and tell me if you think the differences between them is significant and on what basis you formed your opinion?

GeForce GTX 460 and GeForce GTS 450


A:GeForce GTX 450 and GTX 460

The 460 is definitely better. If you look on the specs sheet, you can see the differences in clock speeds, bandwidth, and actual power. The 460 has slightly lower clock speeds, but twice the bandwidth, and a higher texture filling speed.

On the other hand the 460 requires 54 more watts of power, as well as an additional power pin and a 450W recommended PSU.

Hello everyone I need a little help.

I have an HP 6107C 2.5 Ghz dual core that I had installed a GeForce GT220 Graphic's card in last month. Last weekend my wife started the windows 7 install and when we were at the final stage of installing the windows the screen went totally blank so I had to switch back to the card on the motherboard. I cannot even see the graphic's card on the computer.

I did a lot of searches here and found the best solution was to download the software from the website so I un-installed the original software and downloaded the newest software from the Nvidia website but still no luck. Is there some trick to get it to find the hardware? I've spent hours upon hours and still no luck.

Any suggestion would be helpful.

Hey, my freind has this card

and he seems to think that because it has 256mb of memory it is going to to be better than this one which i am hopefully going to get

which one is actually better, and is it worth getting the 256mb version of the 6600GT becuase ive heard the difference is marginally small...

A:Geforce and ATI

if the choice is limted to those two cards I would take the 6600gt, but frankly I would prefer the 256MB version. if you like playing newer games at high resolutions or games with large maps then go for a 256mb card. if you only play games like the sims then either one will do fine.

I want to know what to buy before i buying?

A:GeForce gtx 550 ti or gtx 650

Well according to these charts,the 550ti performs better then the base gtx 650,it will give you a idea on what you want to choose. I say go for 550ti unless you want a 600 series card then get a 660ti because the 650 is slower then the 550ti

I own a GeForce 6200 128MB Agp 8x 64-Bit video card. Whenever I install it in the computer, the screen stays in a standby-like mode. I have uninstalled the on-board graphics and tried to install the drivers from the cd the card came with. Please help me!

A:Help with GeForce!

So you just got the card and you're trying to install it? Maybe there are graphics drivers for your onboard graphics you need to uninstall first, what onboard graphics did you have? Also, you don't need a monster psu to run that card but you need to have at least a decent 300w psu so check that. And plug in the card before you install the new drivers. So far it actually sounds like you don't have enough power but if you can give us any additional info that'd be good.

I was thinking of geting a new video card.. It sounds like so far that Geforce don't have as much problems as ATI.. Well out of the people that I know.

On here it seems (quickly looked at) the same..

My kinds of games are Wow, Guild Wars, NWN, Swat 4 and so on..

For Video that's all I do is gaming.. DVD's I got my T.V so no worries there..

Would like something with at least this specs..

8x, AGP, radeon 9800 or go with pro, GeForce hmmm what ever is the best that they have out right now.. What would that be?

A:ATI or GeForce.

Last I checked the best performance card is out by nVidia, the 7800gtx, but if your on a budget, you'd probably get more performance per dollar with an ATI. I personally prefer the nVidia product as it's driver support is superior, IMO.

Hi. So after getting this OEM graphics card for my new comp, I am beginning to want to get another card for my PC. However, before all this I didn't think very far ahead as to which graphics card to get as Im running into many problems now. So on the website this card is capable of SLI 2 ways (although on sli website it's not "certified" -.-). But since this is a built-in card, i cannot by an identical one, and i found that i cannot use two cards of different GPUs. So the question is: is there another card that has the same "gpu" that i can buy to work with the OEM gts 240?? or am i screwed?

A:SLI with Geforce GTS 240?

As far as I know, none of the GeForce GT 200 series are SLI compatible.

I have a 600watt coolermaster power supply and i wanted to know whats the best video card i could get for my PSU. It has 2 18A rails and i have an Intel E5200 overclocked to 3.1ghz. According to thermaltake calculator, my pc uses a total of 275 watts with my 8800gts, 2 hard drives, two dvd burners, and 3 fans. I used it to calculate the amount of power it would use if i had a GTX 275 and it would be around 305 watts. Here is my PSU I know it can handle a GTX 260 for sure but what about a GTX 275 or maybe a 4870x2? Or a 3870x2?

Thank You.

A:Geforce GTX 275

If you can wait a while the ATI Directx 11 cards will soon be out, the Radeon HD5850 and 5870, and they promise to perform exceptionally well and use less power then similar cards of the current generation.

You'd be pushing the CoolerMaster by using it with a 4870X2, 650 watts is the minimum called for from ATI, and thats from a quality unit which that CoolerMaster isn't - I've seen them call for only 500 from a manufacturer or two but I wouldn't risk it. The 3870X2 is old tech and calls for 550 watts. The GTX 275 calls for 550 Watt power supply. It may only use about 220 watts by itself but the rest of system will use quite a bit as well plus power supplies aren't very efficient, your CoolerMaster in the perfect unrealistic lab environment is only 70% efficient which will be lower in a real world computer, and you never want to be near the max anyway and 36 amps on two 12 volt rails isn't great either.

I suppose the question is is it running at satisfactory performance for the games you are playing.

Overclocking the core memory and memory clock by 5-10% will probably be achievable - but you increase the risk of damaging your card. You also might need to think about a better heatsink/fan arrnagement on it.

There are two possible causes, either the driver installation is just a bit wacky
or the power supply is failing to deliver enough juice to the card under load.

If it's the driver we'll want to completely scrub your nvidia control panel and graphics driver then reinstall fresh.
Do not use the nvidia uninstaller, it misses a ton of stuff.
Instead use this application to do the removal. - Driver Sweeper
For best results this should be done in safe mode.
Though you don't HAVE to be in safe mode to use it.
Also download the latest driver from nvidia before you start as once the drivers are removed everything on the screen will be enormous and it'll be hard to navigate until the new driver is installed again.
I suggest saving it to the desktop for ease of acces.
I can't link you to the latest available driver for that card without knowing whether you have 32bit or 64 bit windows.
You neglected to fill that out in your system information.
