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.)

My best opinion as to why you are having problems is incompatibility. Looking at the chipset for your motherboard (Intel Beachwood X38), it is linked for a PCI Express slot version 1.1. The Geforce GTX 660 DirectCU is a PCI Express 3.0 card. Not all PCI Express 3.0 cards will work in a PCI Express 1.1 slot. Multiple people have had problems with said issue. If you are looking for better compatibility, I would suggest getting a PCI Express 2.1 (or 2.0) video card. You will have less issues getting it to work properly.

what is the best compatible cpu for my motherboard i use the computer for gaming i currently am useing a evga pny gtx 460 gpu but i have a evga gtx 980 ti that i am installing and i really  believe that i will need a better cpu   i currently am useing a intel core 2duo e7600 cpu i was told by my friend that the best would be a intel core 2 quad q9650 but i have seen that alot of people have problems with compatibility when installing these  cpus so i thought it would be a good idea to ask a somebody who know what they are doing/talking about thank you for your time and consideration

Above on the left is this specific forum's search box, and if you type in pinout and then hit return you will find what you need.  The HP workstations of this era (xw6400 xw6600 xw4600 etc) used very similar pinouts with slight variations, and there are excellent posts in there where you can see all the variations.   All the important ones will be there for you.  Even the wiring colors have been quite uniform.  Makes sense they would do it that way.

My monitor shuts down when I attempt to play a game. I'm thinking It only kicks into full speed when I start running a game? - Which causes the Monitor shutdown?
My graphic drivers are up to date.

So is my PSU good enough?
Thank you

A:Will my PSU will work for this new GTX 770 2GB DirectCU II ?

I think youve come across the issue with budget psus. ive googled it and I cant find much useful information at all.

im presuming the "atx 750" is their attempt at saying its a 750w, which yes is fine for a gtx 770. I run mine off of a 650w.

however I dont think your psu is up to the task regardless. a decent branded psu is essential for a gaming rig, having a quick nose on ebay ankermann psu's go for around $10-20, not in the $100-200 youd expect to pay for a decent branded on.

personally id ditch the psu regardless and get something branded, it will be a ticking time bomb of which it could take out your cpu, gpu and mobo if it went pop during use.

for now make sure both 4/6pin power connectors are attached to the psu. if you are using molex adapters then this could be the issue. they need to run off seperate rails.

You should try also to ask/browse at the Asus ROG GeForce Graphic Cards Forums must be some having kind of this issue you're mentioning.

You're PSU is fine for One GTX 770 DC2 card. Try not use the adapter Asus have furnished inbox but power it directly from the PSU dedicated viudeo PCI-e rails.

Be careful with updading your Graphics card vBios. You could save the original one using latest GPU-Z (small icon in Bios version section).

I saw that the last vBios for that card GTX 770 DC2 is from October 30, 2013, which seems if yours is brand new that it got the most up-to-date vBios.

Hi All,

So swapped out my old dual core cpu for a quad core Q9650. Win 7 booted fine but on start up the bios asked for a microcode update.

The update was installed and now I get a BSOD on boot up.

I understand its a driver issue but do not know what driver is requiring an update.

Please advise urgently, I need this computer for client who is due in on Tuesday!

From everything I have read I have not seen anywhere that a Xenon CPU is cpompatible with the motherboard. You may have just reached an unsurmountable roadblock. A Core 2 Extreme Quad Core QX9650 3.0GHz is compatible with the workstation's motherboard. It is also a beastie CPU.  The subject was discussed in the past at the following thread The specs for the workstation, along with the complete compatible CPPU list is at the following URL.

Think maybe you trying to set the resolution wrong. 1080p is not what you want to be setting.

Right click the desktop then select screen resolution. (think that's what it is. I'm not in windows) Have a look in there.

I have installed R7 250X (OC Version) in my computer XW4600. It works perfectly after installation and reboot. But after another reboot everything looks like I have adjusted it to best performance in System Properties -> Advanced -> Performance -> Settings. But I haven't done that. Also setting there is selected for "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer". Also I have to manually start by going to task manager after login.

I brought it especially for running DirectX 11 & 12 applications and games. But when Windows is like that, games don't even work. Applications don't even start. GTA stuck at loading page.

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.

Hi all,

In days of yore it was recommended to create a boot disk...just in case. I don't know whether this is still in practice with Windows XP. From what I can see is. I am trying to help out a small law office who is planning to upgrade to xp. I'd planned to write instructions for them for creating their start-up disks. One question I was asked (and couldn't answer) was whether each workstation needed it's own, or if they could just create one boot disk on one workstation and keep it in the safe for all to use.

Does anyone know? Thanks!

A:Workstation or/vs. PC ??

Pentium Deschutes are pentium II chips that started at 300 mhz and ended at 450 mhz, basically obsolete now.

Slot 1 are actually easier to work with, all you have to do is fit them into the slot and put the cartridge retainers into the locked position. Slot 1 cpu's are obsolete and out of production now as well. Makers have gone back to the PPGA/FCPGA package.

Dual motherboards of equal size (say two 450's versus a 900) are a tad bit slower than the single chip version as far as I know.

Only reason I can think of that a workstation is faster is the limited software and applications that are run.

A friend of mine runs a preschool and has 3 old P3 computers that the kids use for simple games. He asked me to clean the hard drives and update the OS. Somehow, they have XP Pro installed - illegal copies that cannot be updated. He has disks for NT Workstation – legal copies (two have never been opened). I want to take the illegal OS off and put the legal OS on. So far, I haven’t figured how to do that and going backwards doesn’t seem to be covered when I did a Google search on how to do that. I tried “format c:” from XP and it does not want to do that, even from safemode and a prompt window.

hi all,

i was just wondering what a workstation is. i'm kind of confused over the definition. i've seen dell advertising their Precision line of workstations with all the high end stuff (intel xeon, nvidia quadro, etc.) costing $$$, while i saw an ad at one of my local whitebox stores advertising what they call a workstation which is an intel celeron based system with el-cheapo parts selling for under $400 CDN. i aslo went to a local university library a couple weeks back and the terminals where the library catalogs are put are also call "workstations".

so what is a work station? i just want to know

A:what's a workstation?

In the modern day of marketing common words are stretched to mean anything, no point in getting exited over meanings..

A workstation may mean just about any computing device sitting on your desktop.

It may also mean a powerful personal computer (not only in PC sense) used for engineering and design.

The classical and most correct (IMHO) definition is a non-PC desktop machine, usually running UNIX. Workstations are made by Sun and SGI for example.

I would not go for an Opteron processor as they are meant more for servers than desktops. For a build like this, you would either be looking at the AMD 8350 flagship or an Intel I7 4xxx.. The main difference is that Intel is faster on single-threaded tasks (that is the major difference), but AMD is ever so slightly faster on some multi-threaded tasks...

Would you be willing to build the computer yourself?

I have a PC running XP in my shop that boots to the F8 menu. It will not complete booting using any of the choices. It goes partway, displays the XP loading screen with Safe, Last Known Good and Normal options.

Then it resets itself and goes back to the menu.

What version of XP? According to the COA on the case it's XP Professional.

I've tried a couple of recovery CDs but their utilities to force a System File Check during boot or to use System Restore won't work because they say the installed XP is "not XP" or is Windows NT Workstation.

So I'm fresh out of ideas! I've never seen anything like this with XP. I could use a recovery CD to copy files to an external drive then wipe it and reinstall, but that's the simple yet time consuming way to fix it.

A:XP identifying itself as NT Workstation.

If you have any service packs installed, then you don't have the same operating system any more. If you have SP3 installed, you need the XP SP3 CD to do a system file check. You should have made one when you changed to the new OS or you have no CD to repair with.

XP is a Windows NT workstation.

The IT guy here ordered a new workstation for me (without asking me what to get)

If it is not going to be considerably better, I will let that workstation go to someone else and wait another year for the "chance" to ask for what I want.

Everything else about the new workstation (Dell Dimension 3000) is an improvement. My only question is about the video card.

Existing: NVIDIA GeForce 256 AGP (Dell)

New: Integrated Intel® Extreme Graphics 2

Does anyone hve any opinion on the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 card? Is it any good? better/worse than my existing card?

My HP Workstation 8000 will not boot. I was downloading a torrent, and then opened the .avi file, and it told me to go to to decrypt the file. I went to the site, didn't download anything, and the computer just froze. (could this be multiple trojans.avi?) I had no option but to turn it off. Now it will not boot, nothing on the monitor, though fans and drives are running. I would have made the HD a slave in another computer to save the data, but no one else seems to have internal SCSI. What can I do? I really don't care about the data anymore I just need the computer to work.

Does anyone know what the 775 limitations are on this board? I can't access the CPU support and Im not sure of the 45/65nm support? I want to upgrade just the cpu on an old workstation to give 64bit support for more RAM (which I already have). I'd like to put the E5700 Wolfdale in but again, not sure. If anyone can recommend the top 3-4 processors that I can use it would be mucho appreciated.

A:CPU upgrade for workstation

It's not capable of utilizing more than 2GB of RAM, so not sure how you'd potentially need 64-bit to address what it can handle now.

I'd look at upgrading personally, compared with today's technology that motherboard is woefully inadequate and by the looks of things only supports very early LGA 775 processors anyway. You essentially be throwing money at obsolete technology.

Hi Guys
Several months ago, I formatted and reinstalled XP Pro without any problem. Recently I noticed that when I press the Windows key & L to lock the workstation, I am sent to the main windows logon screen where the various account holders can select their icon and log in. Before I formatted, when I locked the work station a small window popped up saying "this workstation has been locked and can only be unlocked by an administrator or insert-user-name-here etc etc" My question is how do I get that window back instead of the main logon screen?

All The Best

A:Locking workstation not quite right?

Go to control panel user accounts select "change the way users login/logoff" uncheck the Welcome screen. Before doing this make sure that if u have more than one account on the pc that u assign each account with a password.

when the above blue screen appears, the system freezes and i have to reset ( control-alternate-delete ) does not cooperate

kindly advise.........thanks with a star

p.s. maybe it has to do with partitioning with NTFS instead of FAT32

A:NT 4.0 Workstation Install

NT4 doesn't support FAT32 at all.

You will need to repartition if you have created a large FAT32 partition. Create the partitions from within the NT4 install and it will allow you to create the largest system partition it can support, which is about 8 Gb for NTFS, and 4 GB for FAT. You can then partition the rest of your HD as a data partition.

I'm thinking about buying this to run on my second harddrive. First, Is this a good windows version? Is it comparable to 2000? Is it better than Me? And finally is it worth 15 bucks? Any help with these questions would be great!!!! Thanks for your input!

A:Windows NT Workstation

If you have windows 2000 running on your system, then I personally would not purchase and install windows NT 4.0 unless you want to take a look at it and learn something about it.

It is possible that if your hardware is too new, then you may have problems finding drivers for it. Also NT does not have USB support.

You cannot compare NT to ME they fit different purposes - business vs home.
The righ comparison would be win95 or NT...( but still fit different purposes)

If you would like to upgrade the OS and find something better then ME, then get XP Home.

A:Dns problems on NT Workstation 4.0


Is the DNS server a local domain server or an external ISP DNS server?

Are you in a domain or a workgroup?

The only thing I can think of, is that the DNS is part of the local domain, but your machine is not logging onto the domain (or does not even have a computer account on the domain), and thus is not being given access to the DNS server.

However, if you are in a Workgroup configuration, and the DNS server is your ISP's DNS server, then I have no idea, excpet perhaps for a slight typing error like instead of

Did you format the drive before install?
Depending on the parameter of the install it may have been doing a repair install
and thus writing all of the old information to another are.
If that was the case and the drive was near full there would be limited space for the new data.

A fresh install on a freshly formatted drive is the best technique.

I'm not sure what all the software enhancement does. I do a lot of support on the Dell users forum but it's primarily with Desktops, and very little with Laptops. The Xfi MB software is strictly an OEM product and Creative (SoundBlaster) does not offer any support or software updates.

That 1774, if it is the correct model number, must be a new model as it's not listed in the Dell downloads yet as I wanted to check on the actual sound module used (e.g. RealTek or IDT).

I have a Retail PCIe Xfi Fatal1ty on my Desktop and it is ASIO compliant and my Sonar 8.5.2 Recording program recognizes it (although I don't use it with Sonar).

Thank you in advance for any and all help provided,  My father gave me a "z 600 workstation" that he is not going to use anymore(retired). I noticed that this unit can have a dual CPU setup. My question is if I can use this unit for gaming. Can I set up the rig with 2 cpu for better gaming performance?  I am aware of GPU and RAMM upgrades but not to sure if its even posssible to run the 2 cpu at the same time? Will having the 2 cpu increase the Ghz speed from like 2.xx - 4.xx?

I have a client with 5-6 users running Sage Peachtree Quantum. Currently it's connected peer to peer with one system hosting the files while other systems are connected to it via Mapped Network Drive.

Should I run a centralized server running Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 or continue running it as a workstation with Windows 7 x64?

Is there a Portable version of VMWare Workstation available?

Hello there,

I have a 2 comp network. 1 comp 's running Win 2K Server, the other Workstation. There are no special services running on the server (apart from being the domain controller).

I can't think of any good reason to justify such setup. Any comments?

Regardless, I want to setup a P2P network. Is it possible to 'downgrade' the server to a workstation without re-installing? If yes, how?


A:Win 2K: Switching from Server to Workstation

I know of no way to "downgrade" from server to 2K-Pro, and Microsoft doesn't either.

I have this small thing that I want to do: When my laptop resumes sleep/hibernate I want to run a small script (.bat) that requires to be run as administrator.

I have created a Task on Scheduler.
Under General tab I've been experimented with all the options.On Triggers tab I've used "logon" and "startup" which have succeded but are useless to me; so the only active I have now is "workstation unlock".Actions: start a program
So, while my task is able to start on logon and startup why can't it start on workstation unlock?

please help me , how to reset kaspersky antivirus 6 workstation for 30 days (what is the method to reset trial period)

if some one want this version of kaspersky to try how reset trial period, i have not problems for uploading this version in upload websites.

A:for experts in kaspersky 6 workstation

After a 30-day trial period, most software vendors require you to purchase a license or remove their product. In many cases, the features will be disabled so the software is not much use in keeping. I'm not aware of any way to legally reset a trial period. If you encountered an issue before the trial expired and were not able to use the anti-virus then you need to contact Kaspersky Lab Support for assistance.If the trial period has expired and you just want to reset it in order to continue using, then we cannot offer assistance that would circumvent the procedures a software vendor has implemented in offering a free trial to users.

I have a XP Pro that cant see the network, nor it's own SQL Server.

I have traced down in System Event Log that the Workstation service isn't getting started. There is a link to M$, but not enough detail is being sent so M$ assist page says we don't know.

I have tried to uninstall XP programs and then reinstall them(IIS,...) also dropped the NIC and let it rebind on a reboot.

Any ideas or is this a reisnstall required?

Hi Recently had a computer 7 Z400 HP workstation Windows - get a blank screen on HP Z400 workstation - Windows 7 reboot it would loop in the Windows Professional bit startup repair utility I was unable to repair from an image so I had ordered the Reinstall Repair disks from HP While waiting I googled the error and found symptoms similar to others who had a rootkit virus and they mentioned getting to the desktop by choosing the boot option of not verifying signatures and then cleaned the virus with TDSSKiller from Kaspersky Those suggestions worked in our case and TDSSKiller found the infection in MBR Program said it was removed and I did an additional scan with MSSE MS security essentials and everything looked good Her computer shut down over the weekend for windows updates and on reboot the virus was back I followed the same procedures but I believe the malware virus is still residing in the master boot record I need some guidance on additional steps to clean it up thank you Gabe

Hi I have a Comapq DeskPro 550 that recently croaked from mb failure and now I need to install a new motherboard (plus CPU, Memory, etc...) I have my eye on a new Asus Micro ATX but inside my computer is a standard ATX motherboard and I dont know if there are holes for the micro ATX under the broken ATX or more importantly if the I/0 panel will line up where the old one does even though they are different kinds of ATX's. Is there an I/0 panel standard?
