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.)

it is about 20.00 more than your stated budget, but the Antec P160 aluminum case is hard to beat.

Hey, I'm looking for full tower case up to £100 (may be a little bit more than £100 tho), It have to be full size as I have to fit CPU water cooling- Corsair h155i. I really like case Nzxt h440, however, I'm looking for something with space for optical drive. And yeah I want to have optical drive ;) Any alternatives at this price? Thanks :)

Questions:

1) Going with Corsair H50 water cooler with dual 120mm fans.
Must I draw are from outside and exhaust inside case or can I get good results drawing air inside and exhausting outside ? CPU = AMD Phenom X4 9950 2.6 quad black edition.

2) May I unplug all my sata devices and hard drives and when building back in new case must I arrange the cables in the same ports to be seen or should the system see where the OS drive is and such no matter where there plugged into ? Oh FYI 3 drives internal non raid, drive 1 has Win 7 Ult. 64 and files, drive 2 has Win XP Pro 32 and files, drive 3 has all lossless music files.

3) New case is the Thermaltake Element V Black. FYI

Thanks in advance to all that answer me !

A:Moving my rig into new Full tower case.

For your first question, you may have to play around with the config to see what gives you the best temps. The instructions state to mount the fans so that they intake air into the case (mounted in the rear).

I have a Cooler Master HAF 932 -- I have mounted the H50 and fans in the rear intaking air and exhausting air. I have also mounted the radiator and fans at the top of the case intaking and exhausting. After all of that, the best temps I get are with the fans exhausting and mounted in the rear of the case.

I don't have an answer at the moment for your second question.

i toook off the side case on my tower and i was wondering if it would be better if it left it on.. since i have a fan and it would make it better for cold air to stay in..
 

A:Is it better to have the case on the side of the tower on or off?

Im not exactly sure, i guess it depends on the computer setup. You can check with a temp monitoring software like speedfan and check temps with it off and with it on. Personally ive noticed lower temps with the case off when i had no case fans. But recently i got a power supply with 2 fans, and have added 4 case fans. Since ive created a strong airflow through my computer, taking the case off would disrupt that flow and make the case fans pretty much useless, i see lower temps with the case on and all 4 case fans going.

My daughter has a new Dell computer. It is a desktop mid tower case. It has the usual drives and accessories. My question is "Can she use it on her desk in a horizontal position"?

I have a G9657MA-8EKRS2H motherboard that I would like to place in a case to build
a PC. I have several old computers & cases that I have collected in the past. For example could
I use a Dell 3000 case for this board? I have several simular Dell computers with celron processors
in them. Maybe I could salvage a case/power supply from them?
How do I choose a computer case for this mother board. What factors do I use to choose a
computer case? I guess I need to look at fan placement and venting. Form factors etc.
What do need to consider here?

Thank you,

Dell cases are proprietary ie they fit dell mb. Choosing a case is a VERY subjective endeavor; ie what I like may not be what you like. Here is a decent atx type case that will do the job for you.

Hello All,
I have (unfortunately) an Acer Aspire X3910 desktop computer.
I have had it 6 months and it been in for repairs three times already.
One of the main problems I'm having with it is that the case is very small.
And the inside gets very hot Acer has hat to replace the computer once
and change the hard drive twice.
I was advised that I should change the case. However I don't know the
form factor that I need to buy. The information that Acer states is that its
a "Small Form Factor" but when I try to look for it I can't find that form
factor. Could someone tell me what form factors I can use and if possible
recommend a case.
Attached are images of the case I have and other information.

Any Help Will Be Appreciated

A:Need Help Choosing a Computer case

If the case is SFF, you don't want another one of those, since that is the root cause of your overheating. Any standard ATX case will fit your motherboard. However, your current PSU might not fit, so you will need a new PSU.

Your attachments provide no useful info. Provide a link that shows the inside of the computer.

Hi all
Might be a silly question but is there any sort of hardware adapter out there which allows me to fit a HALF HEIGHT PCI (Lan card) into a FULL HEIGHT slot and attach this properly to the case.

Plugging the PCI card in ito the mobo is no problem but fixing it to the case is a bit of a "Heath Robinson affair.

I don't want to get a new case just for this LAN adapter. I've currently fixed it with a piece of Duck Tape but obviously not the best solution to fix the card to the case epecially as this will eventully be a server which will be left running for MONTHS at a time.

Mobo is ATX form factor but case is a TOWER one.

If the steel backplate is removable/interchangable you could see if you could modify a full size one to fit your needs.

If you have a good friend that is a welder by trade he/she may be able to spot/tack weld an extension to the backplate using a piece of scrap backplate to fit your needs.

Hey guys,

i was wondering if anyone knew or could recommend a tower, full would be nice, that has the space for 3 hard drives; but with generous space for hdd coolers to be mounted on each.

Currently have a midi tower, micro atx with 3 hdd but they are literally bunked together and no fan at all can be fitted between them. this is quite unstable i would imagine. Temps are around 45c; when i had one it was about 21c. so i just need a case that would accomidate for 3 hard drives that allows space, about at least an inch between. also be nice if the case had memory card reader built in with a nice design. price doesn't really matter.

A:XFX 8200 Mobo & Ultra E Torque ATX Mid Tower Case

I have the same case; the cables are actually pretty simple and can't really cause any kind of massive damage. Basically, your mobo's manual should have a diagram of where each front panel cable is attached to the pins on the motherboard. This includes the power switch, reset button, main LED, and Hard Disk LED. The cable heads and pins are usually labeled and it's just a matter of finding positive [+] and negative [-] connections. Again, your motherboard manual should have a diagram. You can really just screw around with the wires until everything works, the worst that could happen is that it doesn't...

I read an old post that said you can get a case for a hard drive (from a desktop, not laptop) and be able to access files (but not software) and a link to Newegg.com was included. I went to that site and am not sure how to choose the right one - do I need an AC adapter? And how do I know which internal interface I need?

The hard drive is in an emachines T3828 and is 80 GB, if that helps. My daughter had stories she had written stored on it - getting them off and ditching the rest is the goal. (The power switch seems to have died)

I recently rebuilt my desktop inside a Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced Edition full tower, and I noticed that it has two spots for a PSU: on the top and on the bottom. The instruction booklet also mentions installing a PSU in the top slot as optional. Does this mean you can have two PSUs in the same PC? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm kind of new to building PCs on my own, although I got everything working 100% with the rebuild I did.

A:Two PSU slots on this full tower?

congrats on getting everything working with your recent build . you wouldn't usually install 2 psus as you'd have to come up with some fancy rewiring to make it work (as the big connector goes onto 1 motherboard directly from the PSU, as well as the motherboard connectors to operate the case buttons etc)

however, it is possible, if you are a crazy modder or trying to do something out of the ordinary...

see here: HARDOCP - Conclusions - The Black Art of Dual PSUs in Your Enthusiast PC

I expect the case you have supplies 2 mounting locations to give freedom of choice, rather than expansion

A:will opening the tower case to clean the cooling fans void m...

Greetings, This action will not void your warranty unless you cause damage. Shut the system down, disconnect AC power and disconnect all  peripheral devices. Move the system to an area where you can remove the side panel. Clean the sytem using compressed air and allow time for any moisture caused from using compressed air to dissipate. I periodically do this on all my HP desktops and it is wise to do this. I am not an HP employee. There is no official HP presence in this Forum. Cheers!

A:Tower with Vista and Win 7 Sticker, not sure if w7 is full or upgrade?

Well; as long as it has a windows 7 sticker with product key on it you should be good. If I were you i would ask her if she can somehow get the disc from the place that installed windows 7 for her. That way if you need to you can reinstall it as a complete install if you need to. Its always good to have the disc for the operating system if you need to use it again to reinstall etc.

We chose an M800 for a project due to the picture shown on the Lenovo site for that model as having a PCI slot. After recieving it, of course we learned that it is an "optional part".   There was no way to select this when we originally ordered it.  I know the Fru  00XG124, MSI M.2 to PCI card_V1.0.   I would prefer to order the part, and bring it up to the spec we need as opposed to returning the unit.  Any suggestions?  So far CS has been less than help full.

Hi everyone! When looking at the barebone kits on TigerDirect.com I see that the motherboards dont match the punchout on the back of the cases. All of the ones I looked at are like that. Also when looking for individual parts, I find an atx compatible case an a atx MB. But the case doesnt match the MB. Why is that?

A:Motherboard + Case Dont Match?

It isn't clear to me why you think they don't match each other. When looking at the pictures, how did you come to that conclusion? Perhaps you aren't orienting the motherboard correctly inside the case.

Which fans specifically? How are this fans connected? What type of connections do these fans have? Generally speaking most fans are connected directly to the mobo via a 3 pin connector...ie cpu fan, case fan 1, case fan 2.

..and which do not.

I had a question: How do i get to the little menu where I can choose which applications automatically start up when Windows starts up and which do not? I forgot how to get to that menu but I remember that I could check and uncheck which things would start up, etc. The reason for this is because everytime I start windows, it tries to load my scanning software which I don't need started anymore due to the scanner not being connected at all anymore, and the uninstallation not going as properly as it should of.. but it just bugs me that it tries to connect to the scanner (with about 3-4 attempts) when Windows starts so this is my best option...

Any idea?

Hey guys, currently I'm waiting on the hijack this forums to help me out, but just in case they can't do anything for this virus I have and I need to recover my computer I have a few questions.
1) I currently can't find the restore disk, and I'm not sure if my computer has it built in, how do I check?
2) XP restore guide walking you through step by step anywhere??
3) I upgraded the computer with a new graphics card, although I may have lost the disk with the driver for the card, can I find the right stuff online?
4) I have iTunes with a couple thousand songs, if I back up the songs to a disc do I run a risk of the virus transfering to one of those discs? My sisters iPod is also synced to this computer, what are the chances a virus could have been stored in that?
Thanks for any answers!

A:Just in case I need to do a full recovery?

You need the disc's no way around it, the video driver should be available on the vendors site. As far as your files yes there is a chance that there may be files that are infected, it is always chancy retrieving anything from an infected computer. What I have heard of being done was to copy to a clean hard drive which is put aside until the machine is up and running with good security programs loaded, then hooking the drive up and running the scans in the security programs. This is not fool proof and may lead to another reload.

When I start my computer up in the morning, the tower makes a rather loud buzzing noise. I turn the computer off when the Windows screen comes up, and after that it usually takes two attempts for the computer to start up without making this unsettling noise. What could be behind the noise and how can I stop it from happening? A slight tapping of the tower while it is making the noise can quieten it down a little, but it usually just gets louder again.

Thanks.

shake the can a few times before spraying in future

have you tried safe mode to see if it boots into windows

try a cmos reset

try a new data cable on the hard drive

try re-seating the ram,make sure it is seated,the clips clicking over does not mean that it is

check if it stays up without rebooting with the drives disconnected

if it does just reconnect the hard drive and see if it stable

All of a sudden my Windows 7 computer will only start if I hit the f8 key and enter advanced boot options.
Then it will start by hitting start windows normally.
If I do not go into advanced boot options it just flashes black screen with white writing for a split second and loops back to splash screen.
I tried last known good configuration it will start but then when I restart same loop.
Repair my computer will not work when I use this option it loads files then ask if I am sure I want to exit and restart computer will not accept no for answer will only let you click yes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows will on start after hitting f8 and choosing option

Surely someone has had this happen before.
Also I tried to boot from disk and I get an alarm like sound and will not boot from disk.
Please give me some suggestions.

G'day I'm setting up a brand new ASUS A C Notebook for a friend and am having some trouble each time I choose to Shutdown the notebook either when logged in using Start gt Shutdown or from the login screen the notebook does the following - logs off user as normal - shuts down notebook as normal - after about secs automatically reboots the notebook to the login screen The system specifications are as follows - Windows SP Home Premium x OEM - Intel Pentium CPU B GHz - GB RAM - Single GB HDD x GB recovery partition x GB OS partition x GB empty data partition Thinking we may have a bum OEM installation causing the problematic shut down I did a sfc scannow which returned corruptions that cannot be fixed I burn't the recovery disks then did a fresh install from those recovery disks but I still have sfc scannow reporting integrity violations that cannot be fixed I have run sfc x with a reboot between each Can someone suggest anything I can try to fix this The goal is simply to have the notebook shutdown as normal when selecting Start gt Shutdown Other than this there is absolutely no problem with the hardware or behaviour of reboots > Notebook when Start choosing Shutdown the OS Perhaps I am better off installing a crap-free Home Premium from an ISO and then activating with COA sticker on bottom of laptop Regards Golden

A:Notebook reboots when choosing Start > Shutdown

Hey Golden
One of the more common reasons for this behavior is a device driver causing the system to crash on shutdown.

Is the "Automatically Restart on system failure" option still checked in the system properties > Advanced?

hi, I am going to upgrade my graphic card to ATI 5770 so I need a new power supply which has power about 550--600 watt. But the most frustrating problem is that I failed to find a proper power supply with the correct dimension.
I have an HP pavilion e9300 which uses a very wired power supply tower-150mm(W) 86(H) 140(D). But so far all the PSUs I found is the standard size --150mm(W) 86(H) 150(D) which cannot fit in my setup.

So could any PC God give me some suggestion, please??
Is any PSU with the size of my tower or can I just simply install a bigger PSU which can still successfully power up the comptuer?

Thx in adance.
 

A:Power supply bigger than the tower - frustrated by HP PSU tower

If the power supply will physically fit your case, it should work fine with your computer. Will the extra 10mm interfere internally with anything inside the PC?

I made a screenshot file so that when I take a screenshot I can shove the screenshot in there. Should I be using another program? as now I am getting my screenshots coming up on my Start screen's live photo's tile. How can I control which of my pictures appear in my start screen's photo tile please or in my slideshow. (I've got on my laptop adobe photoshop elements 12)

A:Choosing photos appearing on start screen photo's tile

Hello Nougart,

By default, all images in your Pictures library is what is used to shuffle on your Photos tile. You could save or move the screenshots to another location to stop it.
Photos Tile - Set Images to Display in Windows 8.1
Another option would be to clear the tiles after you have moved or deleted the screenshot to have them stop showing on the Photos tile.
Apps - Clear Personal Info from Live Tiles in Windows 8
Hope this helps,
Shawn

usually leave my computer on, but a couple of weeks ago went on a trip and shut it down. On return it just wont boot. Have two hard drives od same cable they have been on for two years, but bios doesnt detect either one of them and doesnt detect my CD drive.
keep getting hard drive failure message. I have the windows CD disk, but with Cd drive not detected, dont know where to start.
Any ideas??
 

A:dont know where to start

your hard drive might be dead :

1. open your computer case and make sure the cables are snug and check if the hard drives spins when your turn on the computer.

2. go to your bios and change the setting on your hd's to none

reboot and then go back in to the bios and see if it can find the hd - auto detect

im not positive its something on my computer that is slowing me down but i've spent 2 days with tech support calls to charter, they say its fine on their end.

also i've ran 2 or 3 virus scans (free online ones and DLable ones) and about 3 or 4 different spyware removal programs.

i really wish i could give you guys more info to help me out here, but i dont know where to start! can anyone get me moving along on solving this speed problem?

Hi Guys,

Weird thing happening to my PC, P4-3.6GHZ, 1GB Ram, P4PBL Intel MainB. 250 GB HD.
When i press the power button the hard drive seek light stays on, never goes off. ThePC wont start up, and the green indicator light on the monitor keeps flashing.

Tried changing the graphics card, memory module. Nothing.

Checked the battery, No visible signs of corrosion to Main Board.

But, when i remove the memory modules and re-seat them the machine comes on for about 15-20min then just switches off. Same thing happens again.

Any help????

Thanks again

Hi my Inspiron 15 dont react. Dont start when i press the on Burton. No signals.. no led

A:Inspiron 15 dont start

Disconnect the AC adapter and remove or disconnect the battery.  Hold the power button for 30 seconds and remove the base cover.  Remove and reinstall both memory modules.
Verify that the LED on the AC adapter or DC plug is ON before you plug in the notebook end.  Plug it into the notebook without the battery.  Does the AC adapter LED stay on?
No --> there's a short circuit in the system;  the DC jack or mainboard is bad.
Yes --> try powering up the system.  If it will with the battery removed but not with the battery installed, the battery is bad and will need to be replaced.
Still no sign of life after the above?  The mainboard is bad and will need to be replaced.
If you need further information please post the full model number (i.e., Inspiron N5110, 5523, etc.).

alrighty so i turned on my computer in the morning and worked on it then turned it off properly. then i went to school. then when i got back i tried to get on it and it trys to load windows and it says
sorry for the inconvience or something then says something else, lol that doesnt make any sense but it gives me like a 20 sec time limit to make a choice
then it gives me a list of stuff that i can do ex: safe mode, last known configuration, and if u try any of that stuff it just restarts back to the starting screens of my computer. then i restarted and it does it again

whats up with this

o yah i just reformatted like a week ago

i loaded everythingn properly and everything

A:Computer dont start

Ok, so it says something, then and then says something else???? Like what the hell does that mean?? lol, no offense. :razz:

If you formatted then make sure all the drivers are working properly and also your hook up, either Ethernet or USB. Later......

Alright lets know where start. dont So I many to issues begin by saying that no I dont run around downloading quot extra ram quot or quot free minecraft diamond hacks quot This is on my gaming PC and I usually only update drivers and download games from steam So first lets begin by saying it appears windows cannot access information about my hardware and show them all as quot So many issues I dont know where to start. Not available quot Although sysinfo and similar programs can read it just fine The issues started around a year ago when my computer starting waking itself up from So many issues I dont know where to start. sleep mode at nighttime I went into the cmd using the command quot powercfg -lastwake quot which lead me to believe that automatic checks for updates were the cause of the random wakes at night I went into task schedule and changed everything that had anything to do at night to only activate after pc has been on for min or at log on This solved the issue for around a month or two then it started happening again only this time powercfg is showing quot Wake history - quot Then an automatic windows update shut my computer off but ended with a message saying quot Windows couldnt install updates reverting changes quot which also I didnt mind because out of the updates were quot preparations quot for windows Due to this issue I ONLY use sleep mode as it takes around minutes for the proccess to finish But about months ago I noticed I didnt have any internet connection after waking the computer up from sleep mode requiring me to restart it anyway to fix the issue I use a cable by the way no mb s wifi available in this baby Replugging or restarting the router does not fix the issue in any way I also have this light which activates when it detects an internet cable being plugged in this light actually does activate but windows shows it as it there is no cable connected I cannot install AMD driver updates either it results in saying that quot updates were downloaded but error's occured please view log file quot or something similar I check the log file and it claims that all updates were installed and under an quot error message quot tab there is nothing Just blank The updates might actually have been installed but AMD radeon and AMD gaming evolved claims they arent and asks me to install them every time i start my computer Factory resetting my computer DOES NOT WORK It ends with a process similar to the same issue I have with regular windows updates I also had a moment of desperation where I tried to update to windows And thank god this did not work either

I have a c++ for dummies 4th edition book, this is informative but still goes beyond me(i dont learn as fast as a computer can). Like 20 pages in it was already talking about binaries and "cout" and i dont know what is going on. What i dop know is i want to learn c++ badly. Also i tried to copy a simple text disply program from a site to see if it would work in my djgpp rhide cimpilation device which came with the book. This didnt work. Does spacing, tabbing, entering, or any of that matter in entering in code of sorts? Again i know alot about computers and the like, but c++ is too vast to start somewhere on my own. i need some help.

A:so many viruses, I dont know where to start

There are some very nasty infections running thru lately and one new variant that so damages system files it cannot be repaired.

I would suggest moving the hard drive to another computer and salvaging data there.
