Q: Can anyone recommend RAM?

Some reliable good RAM, preferably 2 x 4GB ram under $100, which I would use for somewhat intensive gaming.

Preferred Solution: Can anyone recommend RAM?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Can anyone recommend RAM?

What's your CPU? This will determine if you need fast RAM or not, but in any case you should be able to get 8GB for well under $100.

I am looking for a new USB flash drive with all of the following features:

Metal case or very hard plastic. Not rubberized.
USB 3.0 with R/W speeds of at least 50MB/s
No cap, swivel cap or removable protective casing.
At least 16GB or more.

I still have SanDisk Cruzer Micro Titanium. I am looking for something similar in size and features, but faster with bigger capacity.

Any ideas? Thanks
 

A:Recommend a good USB 3.0 Flash Drive

I bought the Mushkin Enhanced Atom 64GB USB Flash Drive. The write speeds are a bit slower than I wanted at 20MB, but read speeds are above 100MB. I can't complain though as the drive performs as advertised. And for what I want it works perfectly. The casing is hard plastic not rubberized. I know you said no cap, I had that rule as well but grew tired of trying to sort through the available options. Anyway I wanted to pass the word on the recorded speed for my purchase. My last purchase was years ago for a 16GB Cruzer Micro like the one you have.

Here are the benchmarks for my flash drive.

Hi,

Can someone please recommend me a colour laser printer for home use? Resolution should be at least 1200 x 1200 dpi. The option to print both sides of the paper would be nice. Multiple paper trays not necessary, nor anything else that will add unnecessary bulk to its size. There should also be connection for Ethernet and USB. Preferable that it uses separate toner cartridges for the different colours, so if one colour runs out then only that colour needs changing rather than the whole lot.

Thanks.
 

A:Recommend me a laser colour printer please

You realize these are very expensive to both purchase and on a cost/page.

I need to extend my signal on my router. It is not going as far as I need. The place where I need it has an Ethernet port in the room but I would need to be able to wire from the piece of equipment that I decide to use there. It would probably best be a router unless an access point can have ports to hook up to additional equipment in the room that I already use. I know it is best to stay with the same brand and my router is NETGEAR DGN3500. Can anyone tell me what they would use? Thanks.
 

A:What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

Best to use either Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router (disable DHCP,VPN, SPI and NAT)

Example #1 using two Wireless Routers (note interwebs = modem)


Example #2 Using Wireless Router with Wireless Client Bridge with Wireless Access Point


There are also PowerLine Wireless (one box connects to our router lan port) uses AC power


These are the options you can use or just use Access Point which has Wireless features. That would connect to your Router as shown in the first example. Port 1 goes into the single port of Access Points to extend your Wireless where the room is not getting enough single to it.

Your model is also ADSL modem and router all you need to buy is either Powerline set or AP (Wireless Access Point) which has wired LAN connection port.

hi i have at mo 400 watt psu and a 4 gig amd quad core processor and a nvidia gtx 520 graphics card with at the mo 2 gig of ram but am waiting on my new 8 gig ram to come though the post and i also have a dual layer dvd writer and a 1tb hard drive it works fine with the 400 watt psu bt as soon as i download utorrent and start to download the files fail and then my computer runs really sluggish and then sometimes will fail to boot up but this only happens mainly after i have installed utorrent any ideas what could be the matter and how i can solve it thank you very much
 

A:What PSU would you recommend?

I don't think this is a PSU issue, you don't have many components and the GT 520 is a low power card (Nvidia's website recommends a 300W power supply).

Sounds like you probably downloaded a virus or something... you can try cleaning up your computer or reformatting.

Hi.

I really want to play a game on my pc shogun 2 but I don't have a graphics card that will run this game. So please could anyone recommend me a a graphics card that will run shogun 2 smoothly and under 100. My PC's specifications are as follows:

Dell inspiron 530
Windows vista home premium
3.00GB RAM
Intel core 2 duo 2.20GHz
32-bit OS

I will be grateful for any recommendations or advice.

Thank you.
 

A:Could anyone recommend a graphics card?

Found this AMD Radeon 6850 for ~100. This is probably the best bang for the buck at this price segment.

You might however consider getting a better power supply, as the minimum PSU requirement is 500W for that GPU.
According to this your PC has a 300W PSU.

Here's a good PSU for ~60.
Alternatively, any no-name 600W PSU should suffice, but I don't recommend that.

It's getting to be upgrade time again.

Going to go the server route, probably 1366 Xeon.

My questions are:

1. Do Xeon 1366's have different hole alignment/spacing that consumer 1366's?

2. If so, can anyone recommend some water blocks other than Koolance, which I know I can use, to take a look at?

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Socket 1366 Xeon - can anyone recommend compatible waterblocks?

Im pretty sure all 1366 motherboards use the same mounting holes. So any waterblock for the 1366 socket should be compatible.

A:Recommend BIOS update?

I would agree with your final comment, "if it ain't broke don't fix it". But, on the other hand if Dell are pushing this recommendation then it may have some benefits, just make certain it is coming from Dell and not some bogus site. Go to the official Dell support site and look up your PC's drivers, it will show you in there what the latest version the Bios is, just check it against what you have. Go into Bios at boot and it will be written at the top of the screen.

A:Can anyone recommend any power supplies

Are you unable to use your DVD because of a lack of power connectors, or SATA data connectors?

If your power supply still works, you could just purchase a molex to 2x sata adapter, to create two more SATA power connectors.

I'm looking to replace my SRX200 linksys router. I'd like something that is N and backwards compatible with every other format. Currently I run my router with 4 computers, my blackberry phones, an xbox 360, and a WII. I have a rather large apartment with several rooms and two floors. My current router has a problem streaming video from laptops to my xbox and I was told I needed a N router to do this more effectively. My router is now randomly dropping connections for some reason and I've had it for 2 years. Also, I have a 20mb connection and will be upgrading to 60mb very soon.

So I'm looking for the best between $100 to $200. I'm looking for the best that I can get.

Hello,

One of my friends wishes to purchase servers and his requirements are as follows. Can someone please recommend a HP server along with exact model and details specifications including URL which can help him select. Details available are:

Server #1: To be used as the main server for DNS, DHCP, and MS-Exchange server

Server #2: Will be used an a application server

Questions/more available information:
1) He wishes to have raid 3 or raid 5 for server # 2
2) How much total hard disk should be ok for each server
3) what should be the min. RAM for each server
4) He wishes to have internal tape back-up unit for server #2

Thanks
 

A:Please recommend servers

He will have success with any computer sold as a Server. But he will likely have to install the extra RAID drives. Servers do not need a lot of Ram. You can get by with 512MB on up.
Internal tape back up is a separate unit you buy and install after market, but some servers come with them installed.
Installing and running servers is not rocket science, but it is difficult compared to a regular computer, and requires some reading and study, or experience on another server.

There are plenty of good books on Servers available on Amazon and a variety of good book stores... or from better libraries. You do not need the most recent book, but one that references Windows Server 2003 would be a good choice.

A:Which of these drives would you recommend?

Seagate Barracuda LP ST32000542AS 2TB 5900 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive
This is a black friday sale, so better hurry, it is also 5900 RPM, but you say it is for storage.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Full 7200 RPM, and 1.5tb.

About the Velociraptor, while it is a decent harddrive, I think WD mistimed its entry, coming out just a bit before SSD's started going mainstream, and SSD destroy any raptor. So personally, I would recommend buying either a OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX30G 2.5" 30GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Retail $130, OCZ Agility Series OCZSSD2-1AGT60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Retail $230, OCZ Vertex Series OCZSSD2-1VTX60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Retail $240, whatever you have the money for. Of course, there is much less storage space, so alternatively you can save up your money and buy when SSDs become even faster and cheaper.

You might as well keep your drives in, the powersupply is fine. Also the raptor takes a bit more power than a normal drive, however, the WD 2tb green takes less power, but I don't think it is quite enough to offset the raptor.

I have 3 PCI Slots (One of which doesn't work for unknown reasons, 2 are being used - one by my wireless network and the other by my current graphics device, the fx 5200). I also have a AGP 4x/8x Slot... An older version. Newer AGP type devices I don't think will fit due to reversed plugs on the cards than I have in my motherboard. So please, no AGP recommendations.

But, I would like to hear of a nice, cheap video card that's in the range of GF 7 and GF 9. Thank you.

Okay, so I have a friend that decided they were gonna build a new computer, and of course asked for my help.

They want to go with an AMD processor, but I said I'd rather go with an Intel... as I've seen that Intel's lately perform much better on average, put out less heat, and seem to have bigger L2 caches from what I've seen looking around.

Anyways, as I'm not familiar with AMD's latest lineup of processors, I thought I'd ask everyone here what they'd recommend. (Last time I even bought an AMD was about 3 years ago...) Anyone had any experience with AMD's more recent processors?
 

A:AMD processors - what would people recommend these days?

Depends on budget, AMD is marginally cheaper, and they have quite competative processors with lots of L3 cache. Budget?

Greets,

I have an aging Brother HL-1450 which probably needs a new drum (if that will solve the dirt problem), but a new drum + new toner exceeds the price of most new lasers out there (yes, I know that those come with a starter toner, but the issue is the $117 drum).

The HL-1450 draws about 350 Watts when it prints, and that is a decent power draw (lights dim). Most of the new brothers want double that (including the currently on-sale HL-5240).

I am not married to Brother here ... can someone recommend a decent B&W laser printer which does not draw 600-1000W to print?

Thanks!

A:Which of these PC's would you recommend?

Both processors are dual core so they are about even, but I do like the E6600 better than the E6400 simply because it's faster and has twice the L2 cache. The geForce 7500LE just plain sucks as a 3D accerator while the X1600 is about three times as powerful but still isn't anything to brag about. I'd buy the E6600 and then plan to purchase a new video card and operating system. How much are you planning on spending on this computer because it's very possible to cobble together for you a computer that would meet or beat a combination of the best parts of the 7635 and the 7755 for usually just a little more money.

A:What memory do you recommend?

That board can take DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-4200, DDR2-8500 with a maximum of 2 GB.

The only decisions to make are ECC vs non-ECC You don't need ECC.
Whatever you get, make sure all modules are alike, and do not use any memory that as Value in the description, as it is slower.
The entire memory package will run at the rate of the slowest module.
Based on your description, I would get the DDR2 PC6400 in two 1 GB modules.. but you would be fine with the any, as long as they are identical.

I could use a little bit of everyone's wisdom here.

Since I have no experience in chosing or using a PCI Motherboard diagnostic card so I'm hoping some of my friends here can point me in the direction of a good, user friendly card. The only other caveat is that I would like to keep the price under $50.

Thanks guys and gals!
 

A:Recommend me a motherboard diagnostic card

None of them are much good for very long. Motherboards change too frequently. Experience is the best teacher, followed by goog books by Muellar and Bigelow... and know your software.
The motherboard is very seldom the problem... in fact it is surprising how seldom the motherboard is involved in the problem. Same with the CPU. Only in eMachines, which you cannot fix anyway, does either have much to do with the problems.
Invest in a good thermal temperature gun, for under $50, a case of Dust Off, a good power supply tester, and a couple of quarts of denatured alcohol. Put the rest into diagnostic discs that you can trust... buy building your own from downloads at www.majorgeeks.com, www.pcworld.com, and elsewhere.

A:Recommend me a Video Card!!

Well, it's a bit of a tall order actually. The games you are wanting to play require fairly powerful graphics cards.

You need to get an AGP graphics card. The first thing you need to confirm is whether or not your current PSU will be enough to power a new card, otherwise you'll need to budget a new PSU in as well.

Open up your case and look at the sticker attached to the power supply and read how many watts your PSU is rated at. Also look at the chart on the sticker. How many amps on the +12v rail?

Nucleus Data Recovery, the leading data recovery company having biggest range of professional data recovery software.

Their support is also excellent you drop a email for any help they will respond within 5 minutes.

Hi people! I'm new on here so guess i should first say hi! :giddy:

I've just got a dvd player for xmas that plays mpeg's and i've stacks of movie clips that are avi, wma, mov files etc. I'm wanting to convert them all to mpeg so that i can burn them onto disk and play them on my tv. Can anyone recommend a good free file converter that will convert batches. I've looked on the download section of this site and the only ones i've downloaded are trial versions and produce watermarks on the converted files.

Also is there a free program out there that will allow me to decode dvd's and then burn them to vcd or mpeg? Sorry if i sound like i'm asking silly questions i really havn't much of an idea!

A:Please recommend a good Linux distro for my laptop

Most people consider "Ubuntu" the most polished Linux distro; http://www.ubuntu.com/

That said, you won't destroy your Windows installation installing it either. This assumes that your HDD is much closer to empty, than it is to full, so there won't be any problem creating a small Linux partition. Ubuntu reads NTFS, all you files would be accessible with it.

Now, there are problems if you decide you no longer want Linux on the machine. "GRUB", the Linux boot loader, sets Linux as the default OS and Windows must be chosen at startup. Attempting to remove Linux trashes GRUB, and there must be repairs made to the Windows install, or it no bootie.

I haven't dealt with LInux in a while, the novelty kinda wore off for me.

I have been using free Avast antivirus so far, but decided to try a paid security suite since I have public IP address - I have a laptop with i5-3230M, 8 GB RAM, and Windows 10 64-bit. Most reviews point out Bitdefender Internet Security as the ulitmate choice in this respect - however, I am more inclined to go for Norton Security. Would you recommend Norton? AV Tests suggest it is slowing down the system just a bit, but I have not noticed that TBH (I am using a 30-day free version). Or maybe just stay with Avast?
 
On a side note, do you trust independent/"independent" reviews of AV software or think there is something else behind their recommendations?

A:Security suite you would recommend

Choosing a security toolkit with anti-virus, firewall and anti-malware programs is a matter of personal preference, your needs, your technical ability and experience, features offered, user friendliness, ease of updating (and upgrading to new program release), ease of installation/removal, availability of quality/prompt technical support from the vendor and price. Other factors to consider include detection rates and methods, scanning engine effectiveness, how often virus definitions are updated, the amount of resources the program utilizes and how it may affect system performance. A particular anti-virus that works well for one person may not work as well for another.Everyone's system is different and sometimes you may need to experiment in order to find the combination which works best and is most suitable for your needs. There is no universal "one size fits all" solution that works for everyone.I'm not an advocate of suites. All-in-one tools and suites are filled with extra features (including "bells & whistles") which typically use more system resources than separate programs that do the same task while other suites leave a much smaller footprint. Suites tend to have varying degrees of strengths and weaknesses accorded for each feature they incorporate. Most Internet Security Suites include a Firewall, which IMO is unnecessary since the Windows built-in firewall is adequate protection and many folks also use a router. In contrast, separate tools are designed, built and maintained with a greater focus in a specific area so they are generally of better quality and more effective at what they are designed to do. This means the program's performance for that particular feature is usually superior than their all-in-one counterpart. Further, all-in-one tools generally do not allow the user as much flexibility in tailoring default settings and usage.If you are adamant about using a suite, then I would recommend one of the following:Emsisoft Internet SecurityESET Smart SecurityKaspersky Internet SecurityThere are several reputable labs which test the effectiveness of major anti-virus programs and security suites to include AV-Comparatives.org, Virus Bulletin Comparative Tests, AV-Test.org, NSS Labs Consumer Anti-Malware Products Group Test Report, etc.These kinds of comparative testing results will vary depending on a variety of factors to include but not limited to who conducted the testing, what they were testing for (type of threats, attack vectors, exploits), what versions of anti-virus software was tested, what type of scanning engine was used, and the ability to clean or repair. There are no universally predefined set of standards or criteria for testing which means each test will yield different results. As such, you need to look for detailed information about how the tests were conducted, the procedures used, and data results.Some of the testing criteria and standards may even be misleading....for some unknown reason...the renowned German test lab AV-TEST has quietly (there was no warning) modified its certification process. The changes mean that the certificates produced by the new rules are, to put it mildly, pretty useless for evaluating the merits of different AV products...With AV-TEST’s new certification standards, the onus is on the user to carefully investigate the actual results of each individual test…they may find that a product that blocked 99.9% of attacks has the same “certification” as a product that only blocked 55%.Comparative testing: A bit of background for the uninitiatedFurther, if you're dealing with zero-day malware it's unlikely the anti-virus testing is going to detect anything. It takes time for new malware to be reported, samples collected, analyzed, and tested by anti-virus researchers before they can add a new threat to database definitions.

Hi all!
 
I have MS Win XP Pro SP3.
 
For computer security I already have AV/AM: EAM, WinPatrol PLUS, HMP.A and Unchecky;
 
And my browser is Mozilla Firefox with WebOfTrust, AdBlockPlus and Ghostery.
 
For the past six years I used to have ESET Smart Security as my Anti-Virus and Firewall, but unfortunately it has eventually become a bit "faded" and now often at system start-up displays an error message: "Error communicating with Kernel". I have of course tried a repair installation, a manual uninstallation and a reinstallation in order to alleviate the problem, but sadly it keeps returning. As such, I have unwillingly stopped using it altogether.
 
I understand that I therefore need a paid stand-alone firewall, as any free such is not enough for my OS, hence my question is: Which paid stand-alone firewall would you recommend for Windows XP?
 
Thank you very much in advance!

Or you can upgrade Emsisoft Anti-Malware to Emsisoft Internet Security which includes a firewall in addition to EAM's AV and AM capabilities.

I use this online one for the odd document that needs converting.

This isn't specific to Windows 8.  It's more of a hardware issue in that my new computer won't run an Acronis rescue CD.  It generated a "Cannot load Linux kernel" error so I burned a new boot CD.  It won't run that one either but my other computer boots from both of them.
 
The new computer also boots from my Linux Mint DVD and my GParted CD so it seems to just have a beef with Acronis rescue CD.
 
It would be great if I could fix this but after two tries it seems hopeless.
 
I have seen a lot of other (free!) disk imagers since I got Acronis but I never needed to try any of them.
 
Can you recommend one that does basically what Acronis does?  Free would be a big factor in my decision.  Thanks.

A:Please recommend a disk image program

Here are 3 examples of disk imaging software:
 
    1.  Macrium Reflect - http://www.macrium.com/ 
 
    2. R-Drive Image - http://www.drive-image.com/
 
    3. Norton Ghost - http://download.cnet.com/Norton-Ghost/3000-2242_4-10798.html
 
Currently using Macrium Reflect and prefer to use a flash drive to boot into the imaging software but I've heard good reviews about all three of them.

Hi all!
 
For computer security I already have AV/FW: ESS, AM: EAM, WinPatrol PLUS and Unchecky, and my browser is Mozilla Firefox with WebOfTrust, AdBlockPlus and Ghostery.
 
Now I would like to add Anti-Ransomware protection too; I have read about this here and here and necessarily being a bit uncertain of the protection alternatives; hence my question is: Which Anti-Ransomware tool would you recommend?
 
Thank you very much in advance!
 
Regards,

I have a brand new Windows 8.1 machine; just turned it on. What does Bleeping Computer recommend I download for:
 
1) Antivirus
 
2) Anti-Malware (used to use Malwarebytes)
 
3) Firewall - not sure additional is needed with Windows 8.1
 
4) Anything else I should do with this machine? Already fixed it so I see classic style desktop instead of the 8.1 screen (don't have touch screen monitor) because I'm a creature of habit. 
 
Thank you,
 
Eric

A:What do you recommend for new Windows 8.1?

If you're wanting a free antivirus and firewall then the Windows Defender that comes already on Windows 8.1 should be sufficient. I use the paid version of Commodo for antivirus and firewall. I also use malwarebytes, Spyware Blaster, Adaware, Malwarebytes Anto-Keylogger and the AdBlock Plus add-on. This combo has worked well for me.

Can you recommend a good, free antivirus/antimalware program that doesn't occupy too much space and therefore slow my pc down? Thank you!

A:Recommend a good free antivirus program

You ask a question we get quite often. With that in mind our very own quietman7 has written up a very good overview and provided valuable information. There is no one size fits all choice when it comes to antivirus or malware protection tools and resources.Please take a look here: Choosing an Anti-Virus ProgramThe entire topic has good information and should be read as well.

I have been fooling around with Robocopy now for a while and the amount of switches it features is a tab overwheleming

Can anyone recommend a bone stock "go to" command line specifcally for copying files from an old drive to a new drive - with the following requirements?

1. Maintaining the same folder structure (old to new) while persevering existing directory timestamps (/DCOPY:T?)

2. Ensuring that the destination files inherit the permissions of the new dest directory. (Confused here?)

3. Multithreaded (MT:8?)

4. Copy all subdirectories (/e?)

5. Give me basic info on screen (TEE/?)

6. Write a log file that's not overly huge

7. Cut the retries etc to a minimum

Anything else you think might be relevant.

Really want an easy go to command that I can reach for again and again without wondering if it works or not

Cheers!

Hi

Here are two processors with integrated graphics. Which is better?
AMD Athlon 5350 APU
Intel Celeron G1840

I have the 5350 and it's graphics performance is great. It's like a full-featured GPU!
But! I'm thinking to get this Intel one for an other computer . Do you think ir's graphics are as good as the AMD? Or is Intel's graphics still as bad as it was before?

A:Which processor (with good integrated graphics) would you recommend?

depending on what you use the graphics for, you may be better of just getting a cpu that doesnt have integrated graphics, and then get and actual gpu, which will actually provide better performance than integrated
