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.)

i understand where you're coming from, i can't stand itunes personally

as far as i know anything that will plug straight into your usb port will sync with wmp and players by creative might, but i'm not sure. i expect the microsoft zune players will work with it though. however when windows media player syncs with a mobile device it copies the files straight onto it, it doesn't put them in folders or organize them in any way

Acer has added a new monitor to their gaming-focused lineup, the amazing looking XR341CK. This 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide QHD (3440 x 1440 pixels @ 75Hz) IPS monitor comes with a curved display in a zero frame design, which Acer says...

This type of monitor is the best way to channel the power of your GTX 980 Ti, which inherited its anti-aliasing power from the many generations before it, as opposed to having it choke on the 4K pixel-mania in chase for almost the same effect, at the expense of the dropped FPS.

Can someone explain what is monitor sync polarity?

A:Sync polarity

OMG - - old VGA term as I recall.
CRT displays (Cathode Ray Tube aka TV style) could sync on one of the R,G,B colors. Later developments centered up on syncing on the Green.

"Polarity" in this context is specifically WHICH color is used as the sync (btw, we're referring to the horizontal sync).

I have been trying to find an elegant solution to play synchronized music throughout my house on my two computers. My first attempt involved a WinAmp plugin called SyncBoss, which worked OK but the audio skipped occasionally and it required me to use WinAmp as my media player (I like to use iTunes).

After searching around a bit more I stumbled upon what sounded like a much smoother and more versatile solution which uses Logitech Media Server and Softsqueeze (see After much research and trial-and-error I can't figure out how to configure this software to sync my two computers together over my wireless network.

Has anyone used Squeezebox software to sync audio between two computers? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am not familiar with quick sync so any info for me would sure help. I have looked at some video on it but still would like a little insight. First I would have to have a CPU that supports it I know. But would I need it? I would have discrete card AMD 7790 in the machine in question. What will quick sync help me out with? These machines will be mainly used for video editing. Thanks.

A:Quick sync and CPU's

Quicksync helps to greatly reduce rendering times in video editing suites. The E3 has it if I am not mistaken. I dont recommend the 7790 for a video editing machine. The memory bus is slow, and thus, not good for video editing. I would recommend a 2GB GTX 650Ti boost edition or 2GB GTX 660 or 2GB AMD 7850.

am new to over-clocking and would rather not do it anytime some as my system seems to be performing well for all my applications and games ( crysis warhead, dirt 3, etc )

what I need to know is if the following is acceptable or not, in terms of core temperatures, CPU usage and everything we see on the screenshot...

Thank You
(system switched on for 2 hours straight, only the browser is running while I take the screen shot)

A:Is it in sync?

To begin with, I wouldn't advice overclocking a PC unnecessarily. OCing is a last-ditch effort to keep a machine alive. If it can run Crysis at 45 FPS+, OCing for a few FPS and making the system unstable (NTM voiding warranty) is just not worth it.
Secondly, it's not very clear whether you want opinion in OCing it or are asking if the OCed temps are good. Because whether temps are good or not depends on ambient temps. It's summer where you are, so if the ambient temps are 33`C, those aren't exactly admirable.
To help with them, here are some guides.
Stress it with IntelBurnTest and let me know how high the temps go.

Ok so, i was using a Radeon Hd 4670 512 and whenever i turned on my pc, it would show me the bios and everything, sometime even go into the windows loading screen, and then the monitor (which is a samsung lcd 22") would go out of sync (show the analog digital thingy at the top left).

So i switched that gpu with a radeon hd 4550, and it worked fine the entire day yesterday, so i left the pc on during the night. when i woke up, the monitor was out of sync. Is this an electricity problem? what is this?

Ok, I am about to setup a server used for file syncing and an online db (like SQLite or something?) anyway, I also wanna have Fedora running on it..

I guess I can just get any server and install what I want + make it do what I want it to do, but what server(s) and/or system specs should I be specifically looking at for doing those things better than other servers?

A:File sync + online DB buying advice

Depends. Do you actually need a server?

Are we talking about a dedicated server in a datacenter, or are you building a server at home/work and using it connected to the internet there?

You need to tell us what you want to do with the server. If its a dedicated server, what do you plan to do with it? Monthly bandwidth, unique visitor numbers, number of sites, etc.

For homeserver, again, what is your intended usage. Your current post is far too vague to give any realistic answer.

I'd take it back to the shop if they claim 'no problems whatsoever'. HT link flood errors seem to be caused usually by too low voltage/current on CPU/memory, so it could mean insufficient (read: low quality) PSU.

when i play videos on windows media player, it goes out of sync after the 'commercials/break'. the commercials have been edited out and the show cuts straight back in as if there were no commercials. but it seems to only go out of sync after when the commercial would have been.

It does this little weird distorted pixel thing for about 2 secs after every commercial too, and then carries on but out of sync.

ive been watching these shows for ages but its only recently decided to go all weird.
maybe theres a codec that could sort this out?!

any ideas?

A:Out of sync video

How was the video captured and how where commercials cut out? If captured to tape media first, a lose of "control track" can cause a lose of time code. If this occurs the video and audio may be out of sync when captured on computer. I have seen this when capturing from dvcam tapes that begin to wear out. A "glitch" on the tape causes an interuption to the time code ,when captured on comp. there is a lose of sync. If commercial were cut out via tape pause then record, this can occur. If same video file has played correctly in the passed, the lose of control track may have corrupted the file. Some players are more tolerant than others, maybe try anther player like Divx player. You may also be able to correct this via video editng software.

OK Fellows, I understand this would be a newbie question..... but just want to make sure I'm getting the best performance possible.

I have an MSI KT3 Ultra 2 mobo, Athlon 2200XP CPU and Kingston 512mb 333DDR memory........ I've read in many reviews that the FSB and ram should be SYNC in order to get best performance of both...... How do I do this?, I'm running at standard bios settings!!!...... and don't know if I should clock down the memory?

If the memory is clocked down to run sync with the cpu, will this lower the system gaming performance????

Thanx in advance!!!!

A:Fsb & Ram Sync?????

If you run the memory at 166, it's faster then the FSB which is at 133. So it won't result in any performance gains, but it won't result in a performance loss either ( contrary to the Nforce 1/2 which performs best when the Ram is in sync with the FSB ).

In other words, it's not a problem, & the extra bandwidth can even be used by other devices that happen to run in DMA mode without bothering the CPU.

I am sorry, but I can't tell you what made it go away, because I honestly don't know. I have been through about 3 motherboards and CPUs since then...

It was something to do with my hard drive being accessed whilst trying to play a movie from there.....

I've got office 2010 and for my calender I'm using outlook 2010's
but if I don't start outlook I miss a reminder that I have setup.

Is there anyway to have a calender always running in my task bar
to set appointments & keep an eye on my schedule during the day
instead of always having to start outlook or keep it running.

Can somebody explain in easy to understand terms just how firefox sync works? Since SeaMonkey is related to firefox, will it include those passwords/bookmarks too? Thanks.

A:How does Firefox Sync work?

Did you try the FF Help menu to search for it?

With the current state of Search (aka google) and Open products like Mozilla, Help or Google will typically result in a good result
and certainly produce results MUCH faster than posting to any bulletin board.

To clarify, I've tried to install HTC Sync Manager and configure it to not open when the phone is plugged in, and I've since uninstalled HTC Sync Manager as neither attempt worked to remedy the problem. I don't want the HTC software on my computer as there is no need for it, being an android device that you can simply open like a flash drive.

If I am correct, you're speaking of the sync settings that allow all of your PCs to be similar for favorites and wallpaper.

A:Sync, Backup and Store your Files to the Cloud with OneDrive

Hi Greg,

Sounds like a pretty nifty idea. I've got a similar idea and I'm sure there is a downside to it that escapes me at the moment, but instead of copying why not just change the location of your user's document folder from its default location, i.e. via right clicking on the folder, then properties, and then the location tab and choosing change location, and moving it to within your SkyDrive folder on your hard drive? I guess the down side would be every document you saved, unless you made a conscious effort to "Save As" in an alternative location, it would naturally if a document, be automatically saved in the "Default" user's documents folder, which now after the change in locations would happen to be the newly relocated user's "Documents" folder now inside the SkyDrive folder which gets synced to the cloud and you might not want it in the cloud. That's the only downside I can see. Can you think of others? I'm sure I got to be missing something...

This would be required if have to "reset" the program
Reinstalling all of the data and settings would take a long time and there is no way that I know of to determine what all of the data is
Would be very useful program for all of Lincoln and ford owners and dealers
Apparently "sync"needs to be reset once in a while

Last week I had a close call and just about lost all my business files on my computer. I guess it time to put a plan into play. Can anyone advise on backup of sync software? What is the difference? What do I need? What I would like to do is keep an identical copy of my files on a external drive. When I say identical I mean I identical. If I delete a file at the source I want it to be deleted at the target. oh yes, also if it could backup/ sync only what has changed from day to day and I can make a schedule. I don't want encryption or compressed just a simple identical copy in a place of my choice. Anybody have advise for me.... thx

A:Sync or backup software

There may be other solutions out there, but I use Allway Sync for home and business solutions. Disclaimer: I have no business interest in the company, and have no financial gain to make from this recommendation

It uses a metadata file to compare changes between the source and destination, and will delete files on the latter which have been delete on the former (as you intimated). It can also save to a variety of different locations, depending on your needs. For example, I have a NAS at home which is my primary backup location, but I also purchased Office 365 and this provides 1TB of cloud storage per user account. I use this as an alternate backup location for Allway Sync, too.

You can download and use the application as a tester, albeit with some restrictions based upon licensing.

A:Help choosing a sync software for backup

I don't use any.

Having said that, any data that is only stored in a single location is NOT a BACKUP. A backup is a copy. So if the original is lost/damaged, you have another copy. For safety, you should actually create more than one copy.

In the scenario you outlined above, when the external drive fails (and it will fail), you will lose the copies of the files you are using, and all of the other stuff that you moved off of the laptop.

Thanks for the help!

PS: My OS is Windows 7.

A:Any idea to sync my old iPod touch songs to computer?

You use iTunes. Sync with the old iPod, then sync with the new one.

I am using Devcpp. I am trying to compile a file from there, and I cannot. The problem is I added some new functions to a class in my library that I created. It doesn't find the new functions, because for some reason it is not using the file I modified. This class is split up into an .hpp file and a .cpp file. I was able to add the functions to the .cpp file, because it would show me that file when I clicked on the error, and I opened up the file I added it to, and copied and pasted into this file, but I can't get to the .hpp file, becuase I don't know where it is, and so it gives me the error. I can compile fine from the command line.

A:Solved: Devcpp file out of sync

I found where that file is, and I have no errors, but now it will tell me it's skipping incompatible libraries. It will build the program, but the program will say it's not a valid win32 application. I checked and it's generating 32 bit code. I also reinstalled the program, but it is still giving me the errors.

There are many applications and services to Sync & Store Bookmarks of different Browsers online. But I want a user friendly application to Sync & Store Bookmarks of different Browsers on my computer locally. Please share thoughts and sugessions as to how to accomlish this.

A:How to Sync & Store Bookmarks on your computer

The point of syncing is to make sure bookmarks on different devices you use have the same set of bookmarks. Syncing with something stored on one computer isn't going to work.
Not all browsers can import bookmarks from a different browser.

You can store your bookmarks locally either by exporting them to your desktop or a USB stick.

Then you take the USB stick with the bookmarks and move from one device to another importing the bookmarks. This requires lots of labor on your part. Exporting the bookmarks at the end of each day, if you have made any changes then going around to all the devices (computers, tablets, cellphones) and importing the new file into each device.

When attempting to download the Mega Sync client from MEGA I receive a warning from Symantec End Point Protection warning me that the file may not be safe. As far as I can see the Mega Sync client is safe to use, but wonder if anyone else has received this warning and managed to proceed without incident.

Many thanks

That may have occurred due to less number of users (for Mega Sync's new executable).

A:Outlook 2010 e-mail account won't sync to Outlook.pst file

I figured this out.  When I reconfigured my e-mail account in Outlook, I used IMAP settings instead of POP3.  This was not how I did it before.  IMAP works great if one wants to keep all e-mail out on the server and access it from various devices.  That isn't what I do.  I changed the profile to POP3 and the poblem was solved.  Still don't know why it initially failed two nights ago, though.

Same here, Gary. I use BT on my Windows phone which works good. I've tried everything to no avail to get BT mail synced with my laptop - it was okay on W 8.1. I've read somewhere that an update will be issued in about a week that should resolve the issue.

Hello I found this forum out of necessity I have done a folder folder Sync pc local local office on w/ Surface Pro??? on fair share of googling this question without any luck resolution Hopefully someone here will have a useful answer I use a program at my office that stores data Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro??? in the Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro??? local program folder on my pc However i also use this program on my tablet surface pro these are both windows devices respectively so i'm hoping that works to my advantage Most of the resolutions i found on google involved using my OneDrive however the Local folder is approx GB depending on the number of projects so this is not an option I would rather find a solution that does not involve an external HDD at this is just one more piece of equipment to carry and i worry about performance issues while working on the projects In my opinion the ideal solution is Use the program while i am at the office the files save to the Local folder on my PC and then when my tablet is awake the modified files automatically sync over our wifi connection The wifi aspect isnt a deal breaker i am fine with syncing via a USB cord as well The main goal is i want the projects data from the Local folder to sync with either my PC or my tablet depending on which file has the most recent time stamp So obviously if i work on a project during the week and need to view modify it outside the office any changes made will sync to the PC the next time I connect via the wifi or USB I am also open to alternative solutions that i may be missing Cross posted to Windows Forum as well

A:Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro???

I would agree that having a cloud storage would be nice should the office server go down. You do know that you don't have to sync the entire share folder and programs right? You can sync just individual files that are actually being used and changed. As far as extra storage goes, no need to tote around an external HD. Why not get a couple USB 3.0 flash drives or sdcards? And I really do mean get 2-3, just in case one should fail you have some kind of a backup. You can never rely on a single backup.

Weird. IP supposedly resolves to Amazon
Started tonight, thread developing @ Avast Forum here:
Anyone else having this problem? (screenshot below)

EDIT TO ADD Per user Techknow @ Avast Forum: my understanding this is simply a Mozilla service that is located on Amazon's server farm.  Pretty standard.
Avast blocking it is another Avast false positive.  I'm not sure why Avast hasn't fixed it in a timely manner - they have been notified through their labs and obviously by multiple people on their forum.

So I'm absolutely sure I have an almost dead CMOS battery, as I frequently get the error "CMOS Date/Time Not Set, F1 to load default values, F2 to run Setup" before the Boot Manager is displayed, although this isn't always. As a result inside Windows, I've seen tray icons missing and errors while syncing with the Windows Time server. The error doesn't specify a reason, it simply says it cannot sync with the server. The twist is that only Windows 10 Pro is unable to sync with or any other available option, and that 7 Pro can do it perfectly fine. Is there some sort of relationship between a dead CMOS and syncing with Internet Time? (And does that battery being almost dead have anything to do with USB hard drives occasionally not being detected at start or asking about autoplay every time? Just thought I'd throw that out there while I was here)

A:CMOS Battery & Internet Time Sync (and USB HDD): Are they related?

Just replace the CMOS battery & see if the other problems disappear. Which ever way you go you will have to replace the CMOS battery, so you may as well do that as a start.

I recently had a tech transfer my MS Outlook info to my new computer. Now my contacts are there but not accessible by mail.

The Contacts Bar on the left at the top has a box My Contacts with a selection either Contacts (which is blank) or Contacts in Personal Folders (which displays all the contacts I am looking for.)

At the bottom on the bar there is a Yellow Contacts Box which shows Open in New Window or Navigation Pane Options. The Open in New window is blank. So it appears I either need to move the contacts out of Personal Folders or Contacts into Personal Folders. Help is appreciated. Frankandstein

Thank you

A:Unable to sync email with contacts MS win 2003

Well the proper way to transfer Outlook info from one computer to the other is to export the PST from the old account, copy it to the new computer and then import it into a matching or new Outlook account. It sounds like it was not done this way and unless you explain in details exactly how it was done I am not sure we can help you. You should also describe which operating systems and versions of Outlook are involved.

I can't believe I can't find the answer to this dilemma, which I've tried to solve for years. Hoping someone might have some insights. I have my own business, and keep a Contacts table in Access 2013. I also have a Contacts folder in Outlook 2013 that I want to keep in sync with my database. Sometimes changes are made in Outlook (or using GSyncit to sync with Google on my phone or tablet) and sometimes when entering service calls in Access. When I go to created a "linked table" from Outlook to Access, I get a separate table of contacts that will not sync with my existing table. Every week, I have to literally export Access data to an Excel CSV and import into Outlook, then go through name by name to choose the latest entry to keep. Ridiculous! I've googled and googled, and I have found no joy. Any ideas??
