Q: Help understanding minimum processor requirements for recording software

I want to buy a laptop to run professional recording software. The minimum requirement is an Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.67GHz. Can I use a quad core with less speed. What are my options?

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.)

Hi lksh,
Thank you for writing to the Dell Community Forum.
Please check the windows 7 version you have installed, whether it is a (32bit or a 64bit) OS. There are drivers available only for the 64bit version, also check the system specifications to install the right drivers using the below links.

I have an old box currently running xp pro sp3. it's quite old and low on specs. the cpu is ok but it runs old sd-ram and i've maxed it out with 2 512mb sticks. HDD space is no problem. I want to run 7127 on it. realistically how well do people think it'll run. i'll turn off aero and any other unnecessary services. it needs to connect to the internet, run office 2007, msn messenger, rip/burn music, basic photo editing and not much more (definately no video editing but maybe be able to watch dvds).

i would like opinions please as i know that this meets the required minimal specs but i'm worried it perform "in the real world"

Was looking on for GTA4 and found the minimum requirements:

Windows XP with SP3 / Vista with SP1
1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4GHz AMD Athlon X2 64 or equivalent
1GB RAM (1.5GB for Vista)
16GB HDD Space
256MB nVidia 7900, ATi X1900 or equivalent
Internet connection required for installation and online play

They seem pretty steep for minimum, more of a recommended. Especially the graphic cards, the 7900 is still quite a high end DX9 card.

A:GTA 4 Minimum Requirements

They seem pretty steep for minimum, more of a recommended. Especially the graphic cards, the 7900 is still quite a high end DX9 card

7900 is a 4 generation old graphics card. If you're running a graphics card that low you probably already experianced GTA4 on xbox360/ps3 the way it will look with that GPU. I could be wrong but I would not be inclined to say a 7900 with be maxing out the game. Hopefully thats the minimum and reccomended is at least only 3 generations ago. I want it to look ALOT better than the console versions.

When a software program states it requires a minimum of 1GB to operate well, does that [I]include[I] the RAM needed to run the operating system? For example, if I'm running a machine with 2GB of RAM, and the program requires at least 1GB, do I therefore need at least 3GB of RAM?

A:minimum requirements

All software, when run, resides in RAM. Most apps and games specify the minimum amount of RAM you need to install them and run. This amount includes RAM that the computer needs to do its own background work as well as to run the app. So if a program says it needs minimum 1gb to operate, it'll run fine on a system with 2gb. However, I would also pay attention to the "recommended" memory which would be the RAM required for optimal performance of the program.

Generally speaking, memory requirements are specified taking into account the requirements of the application, operating system, supporting software and files, and other running processes.

I have a Sandy bridge  Intel i5 processor with plenty of ram ,  just wondering if upgrading from Win 7 SP1 64 bit to Win 8.1 or Win 10 is worthwhile.

A:I wonder what will be the minimum requirements to run it .

You have ample power to do so.
I find that some of the processors that are below the Intel i3 processors, can have a bit of difficulty, in that they might hesitate here and there, but an i5 is the bomb and it can run just about anything.
Officially speaking, MSC says that these are the minimum requirements for 8.

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2 (more info)
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

Those specs are ridiculously low, as 20 gigs of hard drive is way too little for even the most bare naked standard installations, once you start using it, and 1 gig of ram is just as bad. It'll run on 2, buit it'll run a lot better with 4 gigs.
As for the processor, you can look for any CPU that scores over 2,000 on the Passmark CPU page, and you'll have ample power to handle any Windows system.

Everything about my computer is good and fast to run Vista, except for my graphics card. I did an ATI Vista check and it says that my graphics card fails to meet minimum requirements because I have Pixel Shader 1.4 and I need 2.0 as a minimum.

Does this mean that I can't run Vista at all, even though I have Pentium 4 3.0 GHz, 1gb RAM etc....?

Also one more question about Windows ReadyBoost. If I connect my USB flash drive, will it act as fast as RAM on the motherboard?

Thanks for your help.

A:Vista Minimum Requirements

It will run but some graphics functions may not work (Aeroglas). ReadyBoost is claimed to boost Vista performance, but no it will not be as fast as system RAM.

I was just wondering what does quot Minimum Requirements what does Games -- this Minimum for Requirements mean? quot mean exactly Minimum Requirements for Games -- what does this mean? I know what it means but I don t think that I completely understand it Does it mean that if you have the bare minimum requirements for the game that the game will play but not exactly the way you might expect or does it mean that the game will play ok but it just won t have all the special effects etc that it could if you had the recommended requirements I m referring to GTA because that s where I had the problem The minimum reqs for GTA are a MHZ processor MB of RAM a MB video card etc Now I have a MHZ celeron MB Ram and no video card onboard video And GTA still plays very slowly I thought that since I have all this RAM and my processor is a little faster than the minimum requirements that it should play fine So is this how it s supposed to play nbsp

A:Minimum Requirements for Games -- what does this mean?

You do have a video card if it is on the motherboard. It is probably still slow because you do not have 16MB of memory on your video for one thing. The requirements are "minimum" and there are normally a prefered configuration listed on the game as well or optimal game play.

Am I correct in assuming that all you need to test mobo functionality is HD, CPU, RAM, Video, and power? If the mobo is good, shouldn't it boot with just these components present. I am trying to verify if a laptop mobo is bad and I have eliminated HD, CPU, Video card, and RAM as the problem. Isn't mobo failure the only thing left?

A:Minimum requirements for testing mobo?

You don't need to have a HD connected to see if it will boot. Sounds like the mobo is the problem if you've verified the only parts.

I recently bought the HP Officejet 6210xi all-in-one. When I try to install the CD that came with it on my desktop I get a message saying the minimum required processor speed is 233 mhz, current processor speed is 232 mhz.

I have a Pentium II 233 mhz processor running W2K. I know itís really old. I have a wireless LAN setup with a newer laptop running WXP. But, Iíd like to install the all-in-one on my desktop rather that on my laptop. When I called HP tech support they said they canít help. That I would have to install it on another PC.

First, why does the printer detect my processor speed as 232 when itís really 233.
Second, is there a work around?

I'm considering upgrading from XP (SP 3) to Windows 7. Read the requirements and seem to meet them all except I'm not sure about the graphics. Computer is just shy of five years old. It has Pentium CPU @ 3 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 260+ GB of free hd space. Graphics card is GeForce 7300 LE, DirectX ver 9.0c. Don't know how to tell if driver is WDDM 1.0 or higher.

Two questions:
1) How can I tell if my graphics card/driver meet or exceed the minimum? and
2) If so, is this upgrade advisable, given the age of my system?

Can't help wondering how much longer Microsoft will continue to support XP and how much longer new software will run on it...

I've read a dozen threads that say "just don't use the installer". Problem is, CP does not see my wireless network adapter, it's not there at all. It's there in DP, and in win7, and in vista. So I cannot do a fresh install, if I have any hope of having it work on CP, and I'm not even sure that will work. I can't do an "upgrade" when booting from the win8 cd, it says restart and use the installer, when i try to upgrade from both win7 and DP. As it's only 800mhz, I need to find a way to bypass the system requirements, but I can't figure out how. I'm hoping someone else has, since it's my only way.


A:Installing with the installer and less than the minimum requirements

Firstly, you need to use the Release Preview, as that will probably get your wireless adapter working. I had the same thing with the CP, my new adapter didn't work and I couldn't use the metro IE 10 and had to use 7 to get it working. The Release Preview had it going like it was a native device, very impeccable!

Also, could you share your PCs specs? As in, is it a desktop, netbook, or a laptop. And when you boot from the CD, can you specify step by step what you do and what happens? Help me to help you.

I wouldn't fret too much about the 800 MHz processor and not meeting spec. I would worry if you don't have the appropriate screen resolution to use the metro apps. I once installed Windows 7 in a Virtual Machine running at 800 MHz using a single core, 128 MB of RAM, 8 MB of Video RAM, 8 gigs of hard drive space and everything ran fine, even the Aero transparency. Windows is a very adaptable piece of software, the system requirements are there so new PCs can deliver a consistent user experience.

Dear All,

I hope this is the correct forum to ask this question - if not can a Mod move it to the appropriate place?

I have fixed a colleague's laptop. It was running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with 1Gb memory and I gather that it prefers at least 2Gb.

Given that it is running with 1Gb (which I guess is the minimum), what is the recommended amount of memory for a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installation?

A:this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing...

There are two sets of drivers available at the link that you provide: one for machines with only the Intel graphics, the other for systems with switchable Intel/AMD graphics. You'd lose a lot of graphics performance if you had a switchable system and only had the Intel drivers installed.

I see no clear indication on the page as to which machines have the switchable package.

If you know that you have the switchable graphics option, I suggest uninstalling the Intel graphics drivers, and installing the AMD package (which is also supposed to include Intel drivers).

I have no personal experience with switchable graphics, so I haven't faced that issue. I don't know how to tell for sure whether the AMD controller is present. (Device manager?) Let us know whether it works out.

A:Minimum System Requirements For Video Editing/burning

Hi there MightyMing if you want to do some good video editing and stuff the best stuff to get would probably be a Pentium 4 processor and good 1 or 2 gigs of ram and good video card such as All-in-Wonder 2006 Edition or the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 both of these run on the new PCI Express port on the motherboard so make sure you have the right motherboard.

Looking at your current spec, that's pushing it a bit for min. spec to run Vista - for Home Basic (no Aero Glass) you're looking at 512MB, Home Premium 1GB on the RAM front. What graphics card do you have? If it's onboard, go out and buy a graphics card with at least 128MB of RAM. Once you've upped your RAM, you'll notice a considerable performance increase!

What is the actual video driver file you downloaded? Did your 530 come with XP or did you install XP yourself?  If your 530 came with Vista, for example, then the Dell download listing based on your sevice tag will have Vista drivers.   Also what video is installed in your 530.  If you don't know, download the free Belarc Advisor and run that and it will list what Video you have.

Have you just tried running windows update to get the drivers ?

Why are you installing graphics drivers for the cpu, aren`t you using just the 7950 ?
Relevancy 65.79%

I understand the point of a "maximum processor state." You can lower it to restrict the CPU and gain battery life. The CPU consumes less energy and the fans consume less energy from a cooler thermal load.

I've never really understood the need for a "minimum processor state" though or what it even does for that matter.


A:Minimum Processor State

Say that you're doing something long and intense with the system - and want to leave the computer but continue to process it at a reasonable speed.

Then the power settings won't lower the state below that specified level - so you can keep processing at a certain level even with the power settings turned on.

Hello everyone First post here first things first Hi Secondly I'm experiencing an issue with my laptop running Home Premium My model make is NV U Gateway and I am experiencing some pretty annoying issues Anyways I am hearing quot cpu whine quot or more correctly toroidal coils which are vibrating very rapidly causing interference with the speakers My question is this Whenever my processor goes Processor Minimum State into the sleep state with no jobs that's Minimum Processor State when the computer whines however when the processor is Minimum Processor State actually doing Minimum Processor State something the whine goes away entirely I looked online and found solutions regarding rmclock but I'd prefer finding some more natural solution I went into the power management and found quot Minimum Processor State quot which I believe should fix my problem since it will keep the processor at a higher clock No dice After looking at the cpu utilization it seems as if the cpu completely ignores this minimum processor state setting and lets the cpu go to anyways Is there a known bug with that allows this Can one of you confirm that the cpu simply goes to zero despite any setting you enter Thanks for your help and please let me know if I should provide you with anymore information Yes I've updated drivers windows updates

A:Minimum Processor State

The Minimum Processors State only controls the clock speed, reducing it to use less power and create less heat. It does not keep the processor working at 100% utilization if there is nothing to work on.

For those that use the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe I am hoping that you would be able to explain something a little more plain than what Asus is with the information they are providing.

On their web site the overview of the P4C800-E Deluxe states:
Leveraging the Intel 875P chipset to support 3.2 GHz+ P4 CPU on 800MHz FSB. The way I decipher that is that it will support a 3.2GHz or larger processor.

But yet in the specifications for the P4C800-E Deluxe they state: Socket 478 for Intel Pentium 4/ Celeron up to 3.2 GHz+ . The way I decipher that is it will support a processor up to 3.2 GHz and beyond.

Adding to this confusion, I found no where did Asus state what the slowest processor is that this Mobo will support.

Could someone that has the manual that came with the Mobo decipher what they are stating.

I have a computer which has a relatively old Mobo, meaning no PCI-E. So my only graphics upgrade option is AGP. Therefore, I have decided to get the nVidia 7800 GS.

Recently updated my MSI Bios to latest version and one thing i realised was the CPU fan getting loud. So i went to Power Options in Windows 7 and wanted to adjust the Minimum Processor State and Maximum Processor State.

But when I am in the Power Management part, all I see is the Cooling Policy (Passive or Active). Previously there were 2 other options showing Minimum Processor State and Maximum Processor State. Now they are gone.

I'm not too sure what could have disabled or removed them.

Any clue or technical enlightenment will be appreciated!

It sounds as if the BIOS update may have cut out those options from the setup utility.

That doesn't mean they're gone; perhaps they're combined with another setting.

With the processor I see they vary in ghz. I wanted to know if a processor is dual core and is labeled as 1.8 ghz is it really 3.6ghz because its dual core or is it 1.8ghz. And can someone briefly explain ghz in processors. Thanks.

A:Understanding of a processor ghz's

The SI unit Hertz (Hz) stands for Cycles Per Second. A gigahertz is 1,000,000,000 cycles per second.
GHz in CPU speed can be very misleading. For instance, a 3.8GHz Pentium 4 is not better than a 2.13GHz Core 2 Duo. However, they are useful for comparing processors as long as you stay within the same family. A processor family being model names (Core 2 Duo, Athlon 64, Athlon X2, Pentium, ect.).
It doesn't quite make sense to just double the speed on Dual Core processors since they operate in more of a parallel mode than a sequential mode, or, in other words, they do things simultaniously instead of one after the other.
In short, the clock speed (Ghz) of a processor doesn't really mean a thing anymore.

hi all,

if i were to buy any AMD 64bit chip or any Intel 64bit chip (not to spark a war or anything here) but would I need to use a 64bit operating system to see significant performance enhancements? Would it be of any use to run a 64bit processor on a 32bit operating system (windows is what i would use).

i know alot of applications do not support any extra capability for 64bit but could any apps use 64bit if the operating sys was 32 bit.

any advantages to using 64vs 32 bit other than "future prooofing"/ also , can someone help me understand performance differences between a 64bit processor and one with hyperthreading? would one get advantage over the other type.?
sorry if this was redundant, school me on 64bit chips and op systems please!

A:64bit processor:op.system requirements

HT is meant to simulate having two cores or CPUs, helps a little if you run alot of apps at a time and want to specify thread to core.

I've purchased a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card for my desktop PC. It currently has a 220W PSU. Now, the Radeon packaging and manual suggests a minimum power supply of 400W. Research from reliable sources indicates that the card only uses 19.1W, however, so is upgrading my PSU 180+ W really worth it for a card that only draws 19.1W during typical use?

Also, if the card really does need a 400W PSU, what would happen if I were to run it on a lower-end PSU? Would I just not reap all the benefits of the card, or could the card / my system be possibly damaged?

A:Minimum and Maximum Processor State "Optimal" Setting

Hello Dave,

It's just basically a way to save energy in both the "Battey" and "Plugged in" states of your laptop by setting a "Minimum" and "Maximum" percentage of what your CPU can run at. Windows 7 will automatically keep your CPU running at "Minimum" when the computer is idle. Windows 7 will also automatically increase the CPU's percentage to handle any workload as needed up to "Maximum", and then automatically lower the percentage (no less then "Minimum") as the workload decreases or finishes.

Here are some recommended settings, but it really depends on your needs and wants.

Plugged in: 5% MIN & 100% MAX
Battery: 1% MIN & 100% MAX (or lower MAX to save more battery, but slower performance under heavy workloads)

Hope this helps,

A:Can i run a home recording studio on Hp a4313w Sempron (tm) Le-1250 2.2 ghz 3.00gb ram with singlecore processor

You will be able to do it, but you won't be able to do anything very adventurous. A 2.2GHz Sempron barely squeaks in over the minimum specification for FL10 and the single core will quickly get flustered if a lot starts happening. That will limit number of tracks, use of effects and instruments.

Current suggestion for ideal balance of performance against cost is i7-2600K or i5-2500K and 8G of RAM they suggest is enough (but even 4G is enough for most people):

On passmark CPU Benchmarks for example, the LE-1250 scores 549, the i5-2500K scores 6,743.

I guess GarageBand does a good job but sometimes it does leave me with a echo in the background.Any help is much appreciated...Thank-you Very Much......

Hi Guys, I know I have been away from these forums for months, but once again, I have a new problem.

I am using the program Bandicam to record, I recorded a video however the .avi file will not play but the other recordings will. The corrupted .avi is the most important.

Any suggestions or would you need the .avi? It is 1.13GB.

Is there a good 3rd party app to use that is good for recording screen (tutorial or games) that records and you DON'T have to upload,

Currently I am using EZVID, its ok but I would like something where I can record and make my own video rather then upload it to youtube then save the file.

I was told programs like Banditcam works how i want it too, but I don't plan on streaming

Good day all! First, if this is a copyright infringement question I apologize and fully understand if the message needs to be dropped. If not, here goes.

Is there a program (free/cheap) that can be used save the videos from YouTube to the hard drive so that I can burn to a cd. They're pretty good and would like to save some of them.Thanks!

I know there is a utility that has been mentioned on the forums for downloading stuff from You Tube but I can't recall what it is. But if you do a google search you will get a couple thousand hits.

YouTube even has a video posted on how to do it. How ironic.
