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.)

Okay, so I flash my ATI Radeon 9550XL AGP 4/8x to a Saphire 9600PRO Bios, I flashed the card via winflash and the computer restarted... sadly my graphic card was making a series of flashing colors while windows boots. What im trying to find out is if I can create a boot up floppy / cd-r disk to UN-Flash the BIOS to its orignal BIOS. I have the backup I just need to know how im going to un-flash the bios via bootup

The file server I am currently using, is running on an old MS-7173 motherboard which (for some reason) is only kicking out about 45MB/s maximum throughput on file transfers, even though the CPU isn't anywhere near full. I am using a spare (I think cheap) Gigabit Network Card in the system at the moment which I had laying around.

I am considering getting an "Intel Gigabit PRO/ 1000CT PCIe Desktop Adapter" however, according to the specifications the card runs "PCI Specification Revision PCIe 1.1".

From the motherboard specifications, it uses: "One PCI Express x 1 slot. (supports PCI Express Bus specification v1.0a compliant) ".
My question is: Will that PCIe Card with revision v1.1 work in a motherboard with a v1.0a slot?

The EVGA 2g Geforce Gtx 680 which requires 2.0. This would be my second choice although I don't think I would get the best performance over a 4gb 680.

I am trying to import OE5 .dbx files from a Win2k machine to a completely different machine (Win2003) with OE6. Everytime I try to import the DBX files I get an error message stating:

"No messges can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open..."

The thing is I have even tried copying the DBX files from the old machine to the new machine and importing them from a directory on the new machine. I stil get the same message!

Another strange thing is the impor facility on OE6 does not provic an option import OE5 files, only OE4 & OE6.

I've already imported my mail accounts and address book, just not my messages.

A:Importing Outlook Express into Outlook Express

I have done some experimenting since I posted the first message.

I created several .dbx files from the list of dbx folders I have for the messages. It doesn't seem to matter which folders I include in the dbx files, the same identical 12 folders show up as mail folders to be imported....even if they are not included on the list I created.

Apparently, there is a default list of folders that has not changed, or does not change when I select the mail folders to be imported. I guess I need to find out where these are and change them.

The files you are looking for are in a folder called Outlook Express and will have the extensions .dbx

They will be in a directory path similar to the one I've include below except for the number enclosed in braces. If you don't find a path similar then just do a search for the directory Outlook Express.

C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{F71B2263-58F5-45EF-8A2D-B337C0C73961}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Just replace the .dbx files on the new machine with the .dbx files from the old machine.

How will I be able to distinguish wether or not my computer has PCI or PCI Express slots?

Once I have determined this, I would like to know what a good/quality/reasonably priced video card would be for the particular slot that I have.

I'm looking for a name and a link to the video card that is recommended. (Specifically one that will fit my computer and run Microsoft Flight Simulator X smoothly with good graphics).

Here are my computer specs.

Dell Dimension 1100 Series, Intel Celeron D Processor 325 (2.53GHz) and 256K cache

512MB DDR SDRAM at 400MHz

160GB Ultra ATA/100 Hard Drive (7200RPM)

A:PCI vs PCI Express

That system only has PCI slots, but even if it did have AGP or PCI-Express capabilities, you're going to need a LOT more than just a videocard if you want to play Flight Simulator-X. A 512mb ddr/celeron is really going to be pushing it as it'll be maybe 1 frame every couple seconds lol.

I'd strongly urge you to consider a total system upgrade if you're specifically trying to get FS-X to work even semi-reliably. It stresses cpu/memory performance to the hilt as well as graphics. You can likely assemble your own PC that will be 7-9x better for FS-X for under $600, maybe less if you can re-use some of your existing parts.

Thank you for clicking my topic! My computer is using the Asus P5K-E WiFi Edition motherboard.

Currently it has an ATI Radeon HD 4890 graphics card but I'm looking at a new card, the Radeon HD 6950.

This is confusing, this PCI-Express business, particularly the version number / connector. It says "dual 6-pin PCI Express power connectors" but does not say PCI-E 2.0 / 2.1 / 2.2 / etc. And my P5K-E WiFi manual simply says that it has two PCI-E x 16 slots, two PCI-E x 1 slots, and three regular PCI 2.2 slots.

Obviously, I'm worried about buying the card and discovering that it isn't compatible with my motherboard. Going to wikipedia shows more info I don't understand, and the differences between PCI-Express versions ( 2.1, 2.2, etc ) is not helpful.

My question: What's the secret? How do I know whether or not my mobo can use the HD 6950? I feel like this is ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic writing.

Now that PCI-express graphics cards are becoming more common, I was wandering, does PCI-express use similar technology to standard PCI and if it does, will we soon be seeing other PCI-express cards eg. wireless cards, firewires etc.

Also, could somebody please explain to me, how dual pci-express graphics cards work, the benefits that having dual card brings etc.



A:PCI Express

PCI-E is completely different from PCI technology wise.
From a consumer point of view it's just a slot you plug stuff in to and hence no different from PCI.
You can connect anything you want to PCI-E and it is up to the manufacturers whether they make a product for PCI-E or not.
I suppose with Intel doing its pushing we will see PCI slots becoming extinct in 10 years or so and we will be having only PCI-E products. Or maybe some other new bus thing.

If you mean dual graphics cards in a "SLI" configuration then it means that basically you have two GPUs working on the same image. So in a perfct world you would get double the rendering speed.
Not quite double in real life though

The future is definently PCI Express because there is no alternative to be seen and the PCI bottleneck is very real. This doesn't mean the disappearance of ordinary PCI any time soon though. You can bet on finding PCI slots on motherboards for at least 5 years to come.

I am currently running a AGP8X videocard on my pc raight now, (its some peice of crap). The question I bring into these boars this molment is could I run a PCI Express card on my AGP motherboard or does it really matter?, because I have looked at the startup screen( u know delete on start) and I could switch between AGP and PCI i beleive.( my memory is faded i'm a little tired :zzz: ). If you have any answers to my question please satisfy my everso curious mind.

and an off topic question does this forum Support Imagesigs?

A:PCI Express.... AGP.... PCI...????

No you will need a PCI express compatible motherboard to run a PCI express card. The AGP and PCI switch that you describe is choosing between AGP8x and the PCI expansion slots but this differs from PCI express. It is to note that even though PCI express gives you twice the amount of bandwidth there really isnt any significant performance difference between an agp and pci express card of the same version at least for this generation of games and cards this mite change in the future. To make your system future proof pci express is the way to go but if you already have an agp motherboard then you can just get an agp video card and it will work out for you as well. it will be a long time before AGP is phased out so either way you are safe. hope this info helps. :wave:

I am buying a new video card, AGP, but im wondering if i should wait and get a PCI express one. My computer does not have PCIe but im wondering if i should wait to geta new computer before a new video card. will the AGP be available in new systems?

A:AGP vv PCI express

I have old AGP card and i plan to buy a new AGP card too. If your AGP based system is a high end one, chance is u won't upgrade ur system anytime soon. So IMO, if u don't have plan to upgrade ur M/B (and ur processor along with it), it's perfectly OK to buy a new AGP card now, rather than wait a year or so and lose the chance to play new games.
And yes, there are decent modern M/Bs with both PCIx and AGP slot.

Pci-express is pci-e. Pci-X is another type of slot used in servers.
Pci-e x1 has some uses, like firewire cards, sata cards, gigabit ethernet cards, matrox even has a graphics card for it.
I think some sata controllers can use a pci-e x8 config(x8 isn't as popular). I don't know what x4 would be used for.

I recently got a pretty good new computer with 4gb of ram, 3.0ghz pentium 4, and a 250gb hard drive. This PC may not be the best, but it is WAY better than what I had. The only problem is that the computer only has pci and pci express x1 slots. The question is are there any good pci express x1 video cards? I would prefer to use pci express x1 because the interface is supposed to be much faster than plain pci. If anything, is there a way to put pci express x16 video cards in an x1 slot, possibly an adapter of some sort? Any help on this matter is appreciated.

A:PCI-express X8???

In SLI mode many boards revert to x8 modem per slot, but for a single card they should be x16. What is the exact motherboard that you have? DO you have the board setup for a single card? There should be an SLI switch/card on the board and a BIOS setting on some.

A:Do I have PCI Express? + which ATI HD can I buy?

The Intel 915 "Express" chipset does indeed provide a PCI-E X 16 socket (lane) it's the socket nearest to the CPU. You can always tell PCI-E from PCI, because PCI-E goes onto the board backwards from PCI. (The little barrier strip that prevents you from plugging something in backwards is the giveaway). If you try to plug a PCI-E card into a PCI socket, the video connections will point toward the interior of the computer!

Just verify that the socket does in fact exist. Emachines released an iteration of the 915 board in which they simply deleted the PCI-E socket. I doubt that IBM is that ignorant, but it certainly won't hurt to check.

What memory sticks do you have in this machine that add up to 768MB...?

I'm not sure what video card you should buy, but I can tell you that you should probably spring for a new power supply, Intel 915 is getting on in years, and another video card would need a higther wattage PSU.

i have an 8800gt pci e video card (which can run in pci E 2.0) and i have a motherboard with a pci E 1.0 slot
the motherboard's north bridge is an intel P35 (the p35 isnt 2.0 complient)

now my question is:
if i had a pci E 2.0 complaint motherboard would i see much of a performence boost?
if yes then, how much?
if no then what video cards would i notice a difference on?

A:pci express vs pci express 2.0

Putting current graphics cards in a PCI Express x4 slot verges on madness, incurring a performance hit of between 25 and 33 percent. Even if the motherboard in question were especially cheap, the card's price/performance ratio is affected immensely. When using an x8 connection, performance also decreases, albeit only by 7 to 8 percent.

Our switch to the X38 chipset for Crossfire tests was overdue. The dual x16 connections improve performance by 6 to 7.7 percent on average, while optimized games such as Call of Duty 4 run nearly 20 percent faster. Looking only at games and resolutions that show a tangible performance boost, we saw an improvement of 12 to 15 percent, on average.

Another thing we saw is that a dual x16 configuration is not as effective for Crossfire as a single x16 slot is for a single card. As mentioned above, a single card loses between 7 and 8 percent performance when operating in an x8 slot. Moving from an x8+x8 setup to an x16+x16 connection also only yielded a 7.7 percent frame rate increase - not the doubling we might have expected based on the single card results.

For now, the move from PCI Express 1.0a to 2.0 does not result in a performance increase with the current crop of graphics cards. Despite the fact that it doesn't feature the PCIe 2.0 interface, ATI's Radeon HD2900 XT gains two percent more performance, as do the HD3850 and HD3870, as well as Nvidia's Geforce 8800 GT. Such a small improvement could have many causes completely unrelated to the new interface, such as the newer chipset, slightly higher system memory frequency, or simply margin of error.

Whether or not upgrading to a P35 or X38 based motherboard is a worthwhile investment for a single-card system is a matter of personal preference. If you're building a new system from the ground up, we would recommend choosing an X38 board with dual x16 connections for a Crossfire setup. Upgrading a Crossfire system from an Intel 975X or P35 chipset to an X38 will only pay off if you play at resolutions of 1920x1200 or higher.

there is no real reason to run out and buy a new mobo... having a 2.0 card in a 1.0 slot will decrease performance however will work fairly well to the point where you wont really notice a lot of sufferance

A:PCI Express 2.0 ?

PCI express and PCI express 2.0 are backwards compatible, so should work fine. I believe it requires 2.0 in order to take full advantage of extra bandwidth available with a 2.0 slot. So it should work with your motherboard, albeit with a slight limitation on the bandwidth there. However, there are rare circumstances reported where pci 2.0 video cards have difficulty on pci1 slots.

So I guess the answer is "probably"
