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.)

Does both offer the same cooling options as well? What about speed?
Sometimes manufactures will slightly overclock their cards. While some will offer better cooling. If all is the exact same for each card. Then, I would say neither is better then the other.

Hello guys

Hope everyone is well. Basically i started this topic to see what people thought about a new asus laptop that i am thinking about purchasing.

Here is a .pdf file with all of the specifications that it has.

I will be taking it overseas with me, and will be doing a bit of HD video editing and use of photoshop and just everyday internet browsing.

I just wanted to get some feedback on the graphics card, and whether or not it is suitable for what i need. It has 1gb of dedication, so i think that is pretty good. But i was worried about the screen resolution. Is that something i should worry about?

Kind Regards

Good motherboard as following...
ASUS P4C800 Deluxe, P4P800 Deluxe, or P4P800 SE.
MSI 865PE Neo2-P Platinum Edition, 865PEM3-ILS or 865PE Neo2-V

The best bet for you to find motherboard is VIA PT800/PT880 or Intel 865PE chipset for mainstreaming and gaming.

Hi, recently I noticed my cabinet case getting hot, so I opened it and found that one of the fans of my gtx 660 is not working,I contacted support and they said that they needed the card for 10-14 days, so I was wondering if I could just add a cooler master bc 80 mm led fan cooler and still achieve the same degree of cooling?
Thanks in advance

A:Zotac gtx 660 fan problem

What exactly would you be doing? Are you adding a 80mm fan to your case to try to compensate for the loss of one fan on the GTX 660, or would you be modifying the GTX 660 by removing the non working fan and replacing it with a working one? The latter could be done, but you will be voiding the warrant (if it still has one). I would take the video card out and first check for anything loose, possibly a wire. Sometimes the wires for the fans on the video cards short out or come loose and cause the fan to stop working.

The alaising in FSX is JUST the same even though Ive cranked up all the settings in the Physics X and in the game settings aswell! The 3D rendering is just as "ragged" as ever.

Depending on the card, they typically use a standard molex connector or a 6 pin PCI-E connector. In either case, you use a cable directly from the power supply.

If you got one of these cards have you installed the firestorm software and considering the spec of the card is there any point in tweaking it. I looked briefly at the software but i have not used it. Am i right in thinking the top entry is for over clocking. I have heard overclocking can sometimes damage componants. The company who built the pc did not install this grogram , only the driver ????

A:Zotac GTS 450 or HD 6670 ddr5

Zotac GTS 450 will outperform an HD 6670 if it is the GDDR5 version, and Nvidia cards have better support for games in drivers.

GTX 550 Ti is also a good card, but remain on mid-end cards, because your processor is not so strong and it may bottleneck all.
My Core 2 Duo E6300 was bottlenecking a PNY GTS 450... Now I have a Radeon HD 4870 X2 and the CPU is slowing all down.

In my opinion, a GTS 450 will be a good choice for you. It is a very good card. If you want a little more CUDA cores and performance, go for a GTX 550 Ti.
If you want ATI cards, search for an HD 6770-6850, or HD 7770.

But be careful with PCI Express version: if you have a PCI-E 1.0 or 1.1 slot, then PCI Express 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 cards will work. PCI Express 2.1 and 3.0 cards could have issues with old PCI Express 1.0-1.1 slots. I tried to install a Radeon HD 5670 (which is PCI Express 2.1) on my pc (which is PCI Express 1.1) and the card didn't show signal on screen.

Then I read that PCI Express 2.1 and 3.0 cards are not full compatible with older PCI Express slots.
So, if you don't have at least a PCI Express 2.0 slot, don't go over Radeon HD 4000 series or Nvidia 400 series. So, in my opinion, a GTS 450 will work very well. For a bit more money you can buy a GTX 460 SE, which is faster than a GTS 450.

A:Is the Zotac 9500GT 1GB Good?

I wouldn't say its the best out there but its pretty good but i wouldnt get a zotac or a 1gb 2 reasons zotac is a cheap brand and the card will never use 1gb. Whats your price range? How many watts does your power supply have? What ram and proccessor do you have? If you are sure you want a 9500gt get this one : But i guess im being annoying trying to tell you to buy something else so sorry ill just analys the graphics card you said......But if you want to just buy whatever to get best performance tell me your proccessor ram and power supply specs, anyway overal the 9500gt is an alright card but there is better stuff out there for price performance ratio. Such as the 4670 from ati but let me know your specs and price range and ill recomend ya one.

No signal goes to the monitor and there are no beeps when I turn the machine on. All the fans and LED's power up as do the drives. There is a little readout on the board that is displaying a number 8 but there are no error codes in the manual or on the Zotac website, so I have no idea what this means.

Well may I ask why you want a 650ti to be paired with a $2500 dual Xeon monster? Since you have a workstation, I am guessing you do Photoshop or Autocad. Plus what do you mean "VC"? Also, I dont think your TV has DVI inputs nor display ports, only HDMI. Unfortunately the 650Ti only has 1 HDMI.

is it bossible to fit a Zotac GTX 550 Ti in a micro atx tower?

thank you

A:Solved: zotac GTX 550 Ti in a micro atx tower

Possibly, it just depends on which MicroATX case it is, how its laid out internally and its dimensions. Also just as importantly is the wattage and quality of the power supply, the GTX 560 Ti calls for a 500 watt power supply. And you might also have an issue with cooling, small cases are not great to be running graphics cards that produce a lot of heat.

I purchased this card from Amazon to play a game. The card installed properly and worked fine except that it kept putting the computer into a sleep state which usually required powering off and restarting.  The last time I turned the monitor off the system became unresponsive.
This system has 32 GB RAM and has Bios v 11, 256 GB SSD with WIndows 10 Professional v 1067, Build 14393.105.
I removed the card and replaced it with the stock GTX 660 that came with the system. I am returning it to Amazon as incompatible.

A:8700 problem with Zotac GTX 1060 AMP

Others are finding 10x0 cards compatible, so it is either Zotac specific or a driver SNAFU. I suspect  drivers more than the card itself, especially if it will POST and boot and get into windows.
If you have not yet returned the card I suggest trying to un-install and re-install the drivers.
A common recurring problem when upgrading is part of the previous driver or previous driver setting remains and it conflicts with the new install. It has been so common that there is a great tool written to remove all the litter, called Display Driver Uninstaller, and while I have not used it on Win10, I've used it on Win7 and 8 a few times.
www DOT
Using DDU, completely remove all traces of nVidia software and then reinstall the latest driver directly from nVidia

www DOT
 I only install just the minimum needed, and do not include the GeForce experience which is bloatware IMO. 
post back if you have more questions and let us know if it works.
My posts often get moderated when I include a link so replace the DOT with a .  in the links above.

Hi guys,

I have just established a website and beginned to do individual tests. Last week I got a Water Cooled Zotac 9800GTX+ Zone Edition and compared with GTX 260 and HD 3870 (I will add 4850 tests soon).

The GPU temperature doesnt exceed 50-51C under heavy load. GPU-z shows GPU used in this card manifactured by 65 nm process, not 55nm as expected. This is quite shocking after we had seen first 9800GT samples were 65nm G92 (8800GT) actually.

A:Computer Cannot Recognise ZOTAC GeForce GTS250 New Help Please!

I don't quite understand what you are saying, i.e. "the graphics card needs a seperate power cable to supply it with the power it needs. i assumed that this is not the problem as the cooling fan is whirring happily!"

Did you plug in the auxiliary power line the graphics card requires?

I'm new to building PCs so please bear with me lol.

I recently installed an Intel Core i3 processor ( i3-3250 / LGA 1155 - "Ivy Bridge") onto a ZOTAC H67 ITX mobo ("Sandy Bridge") ... The system boots up fine but when attempting to install Windows 7 ( or any Windows OS for that matter) the system tends to stall on the initial phase of the installation (ie "What language do you want to install Windows in?" screen)

Is this because of that the processor is Ivy and the mobo is Sandy??? If so, how do I update BIOS? I read somewhere that I would have to use a "Sandy-Bridge" processor to update/upgrade the mobo to"Ivy"?? Do I have to buy another processor just to convert to Ivy??

HELP !!!!

Thank you in advance !!!

I have a completely new build with windows 10 pro 64 bit. I purchased a Zotac GTX 1060 Amp edition graphics card to go with my new build. The card fitted fine but when I started to install the drivers thats when my problems began. When trying to install the drivers it goes through the compatibility part of the install then fails with this error message.

I have tried the drivers from both the Nvidia and Zotac websites and get the same problems. I'm really frustrated about this since I spent a whopping ?253 on this card. If I'd known I was going to get these kinds of problems with a 1060 card then I would have just stuck with my older 760 which I know works perfectly with Windows 10.

Followup: I was able to fix it and thought I'd post this info since it might help others who might have the same problem. After reading through dozens of pages here and in the ASUS forums, I discovered that one of my default BIOS setting mysteriously ended up in a non-default state. For some reason, the RAID option for Silicon Image was set to RAID. That's fine for those how actually want to setup RAID but I didn't plan to use RAID at the time. After making the change to the BIOS, I had to install Windows XP again to get everything registered correctly. Once Windows was up and running, I avoided the motherboard chipset install CD all together by using only the newest versions of all the motherboard drivers directly from the ASUS website. Problem solved!

The other day, I tried to do a factory reset on my laptop, but it failed, and I could only click cancel. Now, when I booted up my computer, it goes to the ASUS logo, then a black screen, still backlit, with an underscore flashing in the upper left corner of the screen. I can access the BIOS, and have been trying to do boot overrides. Please help, I don't have the ASUS Recovery partition installed on the laptop, and I don't have any possible ways to install an ISO.

Not sure I understand how you could perform a factory reset if you don't have the recovery partition available. You should have gotten an error that the ASUS Recovery Partition could not be found.

You would need to get to a working computer and download either the Media Creation Tool for W10, or the current ISO from MSTechBench. You can use RUFUS to create a bootable flash drive, and then install W10 that way.

You might also want to check the health of your hard drive, to make sure it's not failing.

Hope that helps!

Hello I have in my possession an Asus X CA laptop which was running Windows before it failed to boot The machine cycled through the automatic repair failed and then using Unable recovery X550CA DVDs Asus restore Asus to did nothing The advanced bootup options were useless including chkdsk sfc and the usual suspects The recovery partition was apparently missing atleast I couldn't use it but doing a diskpart confirmed it was there so I suspect the upgrade broke the link to it I tried the quot refresh your PC quot Unable to restore Asus X550CA using Asus recovery DVDs option but this told me the drive was locked and disabling secure boot via the BIOS did nothing thought it would at first In addition the reset your PC option wanted recovery media which I didn't Unable to restore Asus X550CA using Asus recovery DVDs have at the time I ordered the official Asus recovery DVDs as the laptop did not have media created when it was new hit F and went to the quot reset your PC' option but it told me the recovery media wasn't valid Odd given it's official Asus media from Mentor Media for that specific machine From the legacy BIOS I booted from the DVD it loaded the Asus specific Windows recovery options from the disk and I get as far as quot Start rebuild Windows system process quot with quot processing quot underneath and the machine does no more I've also tried UEFI booting from the DVD drive and get the same as above Any suggestions welcome please Regards

A:Unable to restore Asus X550CA using Asus recovery DVDs

Is the ASUS recovery media Windows 8.0 or 8.1? It may be because the recovery disks are 8.0 and it's a conflict because your now running 8.1. The 8.0 to 8.1 upgrade does break the factory recover feature on some laptops. ASUS for sure I think. I have a K75DE, that shipped with Windows 8.0. I clean installed with Windows 8.1 from here, Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help. It reads and uses my 8.0 OEM embedded code and activates online automatically. no muss no fuss. That tool will create a bootable USB thumb drive that will work with UEFI for you. If you need any more info just ask and i'll see if I can help. I don't know why your getting the "Start rebuild Windows system process" message and the lock up? It may be because the partition structure has changed on the Drive. I created a Recovery drive, then swapped in an SSD and it would not work on the SSD. It kept saying required partition missing. That's why I bailed and did a clean install. I was leaning in that direction anyway.

EDIT: If I don't get back to you tonight don't panic. I have company coming and may not get back online until tomorrow morning. Have to go now.

The question(s) I have is ->
Am I missing anything when attempting to install the sound card? I have tried with no GPU drivers (including the Nvidia sound for the GTX 750 ti sc) / disabled onboard HD sound and still the sound card not detected.
Even in this motherboard, it should detect the sound card regardless of what sound source is set as default and then allow me to install it and set it as default (without messing about with the BIOS)?
Maybe my sound card has died when moving it from the last computer - Static death.....................

My almost 3 year old Asus X52 F3SV Notebook suddenly froze and shut itself down today. It will not boot past the 'Asus' logo screen. The furthest it got was 'loading windows', but quickly rebooted once that screen showed up.
It has been running quite hot lately, but i cleaned the fan out last weekend, and it had been running without problem since then.
I'm running Windows Vista Premium, with no other real problems until now, with up to date windows updates and regular Spybot and anti-virus scans.
There were random multicoloured lines running through the Asus screen on the first reboot after freezing. Could it be my graphics card? (Nvidia 8600m). I did not hear any crackling/popping sounds, so I really hope it's not dead yet.
I've looked around these forums, but couldn't find a similar problem/solution.

Thank you.

A:Asus x52 F3SV notebook not booting past Asus screen

Try running Bios defaults

This settings area can be called:
Bios Setup
CMOS Settings
System Setup
even just Setup
You can enter it by pressing the keyboard key that is displayed on your screen when first turning on your computer
Its sometimes:
A Fn Button like F1, or F2, or F10 or some other Fn key
DEL key
(whatever the computer states on screen when you first turn on your computer)
Once in Bios Setup, locate Setup Defaults (sometimes called Optimized Defaults)
Apply it, then Save and Exit Bios Settings (which is usually F10, but it will tell you in the Bios Settings screen)

If that doesn't help try reming and re-seating your Ram cards (even your hard drive)
You can download your Manual to find the locations of these components, but they are usually located under the laptop, under the covers

If it is your Video card (onboard) then that was be a big concern
You may need to locate the disassemble guide online, then blow out all internal dust

It may also require a CheckDisk scan
You can read HERE on how to do that outside Windows

A:NEW!! Asus P6X58-E WS MB. No Win8 Drivers on Asus website?

From what I found on the Asus site....
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download P6X58-E WS
They are only providing drivers up to Windows 7 64 Bit. You can go to the file manager and click one time on the primary HDD and then click computer tab and from there click on manage. From there you click device manager and you will get a list of your hardware. You can right click on each one and click update driver and the system will try to find the updated driver for you. If anything you now have your hardware name and can try to get the updated driver through the actual company who builds the drivers.

It also does sound like you may need to format the HDD's. Do the same thing but instead of clicking on device manager you will click on disk management and you can right click on each drive and select to format. Just make sure to not format the primary partition if that is even possible.

A:Asus UX51VZ-IS71T: Question on Asus Support?

I had correspondence with ASUS via e-mail. It was a while ago now, I think it was a link on their web site. It was a waist of time really. I wasn't impressed. Replies took forever and the answers seemed to be scripted responses. I eventually just gave up asking any more questions. My issue was with creating recovery media. At that time there was no way of creating a recovery disk set in Windows 8.0. The utility I was referred to only worked in Windows 7. It became a non issue when I put an SSD in my laptop and did a clean install of 8.0.

Most of those contracted out call centers go by a flow chart. Ask this question, if the answer is yes, take this branch, if its no, take this other branch. The person asking you the questions may have no technical background at all. As soon as you say I don't know, your basically screwed. Assuming you can actually understand what they are saying. I'm not racist, but I don't think its unreasonable to be able to talk to somebody that is fluent in my native language. It seems to be the luck of the draw sometimes. I've had some that I could understand easily, and some that were almost impossible to understand.

Same as topic. Wondering if the Hero was worth the extra 50 bucks or so in terms of reliability, features, etc. Reliability is a big factor for me so if you think Hero is a bit more stable for the extra 50$ then please let me know. Thank you!

P.s. In case you were wondering I am building a gaming/video editing pc for around 1500 bucks

A:Asus Maximus VI Hero or Asus Z87-A LGA 1150

The Maximus VI Hero is no more stable than the Z87-A. The Maximus is more gamer oriented due to its overclocking features (which the Z87-A has, but not to that extent). If you can get a Z87 Sabertooth, that is probably the best in terms of reliability because it protects the components from dust.

Helllo everyone,

I wanted to buy the Radeon HD 6870 but it's not on the market here anymore, so I will have to buy another one -- hopefully not the HD 7850 xD. So, which one should I pick: the ASUS EAH6850, or the ASUS ENGTX560. Give your reasons please. I need the answer before Wednesday (2nd of May)

I read stuff about both of these, I'm really "new" to NVIDIA but I am also confused now. Asked people, some say Radeon, some say GeForce... I really don't know. Help me out, I'll appreciate it.

Ask away for more info if you need to.

A:ASUS HD 6850 or ASUS GTX 560 (non-Ti, DirectCU, 810MHz)?

I have always been an ATI/AMD fan when it comes to video cards so I'm gonna say go with the 6850. I have one and it is great. It is typically cheaper than the Nvidia and is slightly higher on Passmark's benchmarks. Also, I totally agree with Asus as a brand as they are one of the bests.

common problems

well, first off. The beep you heard is natural. It means that the POST (power on self test) went through sucessfully! you might need to check the processor. Sometimes, processors can cause a bad instruction to activate, which causes your computer to freeze. The powersupply also could be an important factor. You should turn the computer on with the least amount of things. for example... (motherboard, 1 stick of ram, processor, harddrive, and the powersupply) doing this will limit what could be wrong and make it easier to troubleshoot. I would definetly check the processor, and even possibly the memory. hope this helps!

What sould I get? The ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard,
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard,
I would like to know which one would give me better peformance, overclocking, gaming! Don't worry about the video I'll have that by Dec.(X1600)

A:ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe or ASUS A8N-SLI Premium

You will not notice any performance difference, by default, between the two using a 64 or FX processor... the chipset is the same and the supported memory is the same among them, along with integrated components.

The only notable difference is that the premium has a heatpipe to cool the chipset and chipset VRM on the board, and it allows you to alter voltage to the chipset. This lets it run without needing a fan (the chipset).

The latter would be better for overclocking, marginally.

Can I opt for a low end AMD Athlon Dual Core X2 4600 based processor with this mobo, instead of faster tri core based processors.

I would really appreciate if someone can help me demystify my problem!

I have a two year old Asus A52J laptop, with Windows 7 Ultimate SP 1.

A few days ago I have noticed that the laptop sometimes (twice so far in the past week) wont boot after Asus logo on the black screen. I turn it off on the button and turn it on, everything seems fine. No errors reported, no safe mode, the windows works properly, without any reports. Today,however, all my accounts from the Opera have been logged out after this (probably the cookies have been messed about), but nothing was reported.

Other than this occurrence, everything seems to be working proper, so I am really puzzled in regard with the boot.

Thanks for your help and any kind of input!

Other than one being 750i chip set and the other being 780i what makes the P5N-T better? I'm trying to decide which one to get.

Hi there

Hi, I have an A8N-SLI with a AMD 4200 Dual Core - Most of the time the Mobo runs below 29 degrees and the chip runs around 36 with nothin to do and up to 44 when fully loaded, i have no special fans or anythin in my machine - so A8N-SLI is not a bad board!

the problems with window's has forced me to study Steve Jobs & Bill Gates. I am positive that Bill Gates has became a member of the new world order. the bank's are still locked up for the poor starting new ventures, from the 08-09 meltdown & bailout of the poor, & bill Gates was at 1 time a part of these people. Now this pc is geting old & also need a laptop. I am still using a hard line for my internet connection. All windows upgrade is so the Elite can control us. well I can not afford internet anymore as I need it. A bank could make a low interest loan to let me go on with my life with a spiritual protection. RAYMOND CROMLEY will leave the internet world.

Hello @cherokeeray? Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. If you have some specific issue, this can probably be fixed - don't loose hope. Internet is great.Please provide details about the issue as well as your HP computer model >>   Windows Update/upgrade is not mandatory - especially Windows 7 it can easily be stopped. You are not forced to update Windows / upgrade to Windows 10.If you are not happy with Windows OS - there are some alternatives like GNU/Linux - Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian, Fedora, CentOS, etc...You need a new computer only if this one has stopped working, there are some specific issues or your PC is really too old so that it can't run modern OS/applications.

I Understand installing a cpu well enough. Never force it in and make sure the gel is touching the heatsink, etc but what do I need to know about wether it will work with my computer?
I am not sure what motherboard I have and I have downloaded "Cpuz" and "Aida" and neither can tell me.
My CPU I have currently is intel pentium e2140
Code name Conroe
package socket 775 lga.

That is according to CPUZ.
If you need to know anything else let me know.

I am just wondering if there is anything specific other than an amd won't work with my motherboard when buying a CPU.

Thanks a Bunch

I'm ready to go and buy a big amount of CD-RW

Any brand names or speed in particular you guys recomend it?


A:Buying CDs

The only thing you have to decide is what quality you want to get, and obviously the higher quality the less risk for errors on the recording. As for speed, in my opinion you can buy the slowest speed disks out there and record them at any speed because that really doesn't matter and you don't need to spend all that money on epensive 24x cdr... because they all record at the same speed.

Hi. My sister, who is even less computer savvy than I am, would like to purchase a new desktop or laptop. I tried to get her to switch to a Mac since I find them much easier to use, but she seems hesitant as they can be quite costly and she isn't familiar with them. All she really needs a computer for is internet, burning CDs, downloading music, word processing, and maybe some basic photo editing. She is looking to spend at the most $1,500 US. I am trying to find information on processors and locate a good computer that will last several years. Any suggestions? I have heard bad things about Dell computers, but not much else in regard to any other brand. I know nothing about processors anymore either.
If anyone has any suggestions that would be fantastic!


A:Buying a new PC

You may get as many different answers as there are readers of your post. Dell lovers/haters, Compaq lovers/haters. In my humble opionion, be sure it has a Pentium processor, preferably Pentium IV.

I also suggest either having one built or ordering one with what you need as "off the rack" computers may have too many things you don't/won't need. For example, I was five states away at a new account and the shipped computer crashed and I had to buy one that had so many options not needed and that conflicted with the proprietary software we use, it took two days to get operational. For instance, five different types of removable storage slots. Sheesh!

I'm sure you will get many suggestions.
