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.)

EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2666-KR GeForce GTX 660 3GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP
is this a good enough step up to play battle field 4 at a high level?
low on cash but this card I found seems to have what I need plus maybe a few yrs in it before a upgrade is needed. any input would be appreciated.
reason I ask is I have a day to cancel and get something else but I am not real good with computers. I am running a phenom quad core with 4 gigs of ram on win 7 ultimate and a 600 watt power supply and 1t hard drive


A:EVGA SuperClocked 03G-P4-2666-KR GeForce GTX 660 3GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP

This should answer your question. The GTX 660 has 30FPS with ultra quality at 1680x1050. Lowering the quality settings to high, raised the frame rate to nearly 50FPS.

Final Thought:

If you can live with high settings however, you'll boost your frame rates by around 60%, sometimes as much as 80%, which is enough to make the GTX 660 and HD 7850 practical options. ...
Fortunately, there's less to consider when choosing a processor -- just make sure you have a quad-core chip. It doesn't even have to be a new one, as even the Core i7-920 and Phenom II X4 980 took care of business. ...Click to expand...

Side note:

As was the case with Battlefield 3, as long as your processor has four cores/threads, it shouldn't have a problem in EA's latest shooter. The only processors to struggle were the dual-core AMD Phenom and Athlon CPUs, while the game can utilize up to eight threads if your chip has them on tap.Click to expand...

Another improvement would be to get 8GB memory. In my opinion 4GB is boarder-line to being sufficient.

My friend has a laptop and needs to get SD connectivity to be able to download into his computer. He has an HP 6565B laptop with an express card 54 slot. Is there an express card that has an SD adapter built in? Is the express card slot faster than usb 2.0? If not, I guess a usb 2.0 external card reader would be fine. Unless someone has a better idea.

This was really perplexing. I am trying to install a Galaxy GT520 on my Inspiron 546. So i take of the slot i need in the back-plate and fit the card into the slot. But...the card didn't fit into the back-plate. It's like a millimeter off.... There is a little slot that the back-plate slots go into but it doesn't fit into the slot. It's almost like it needs to be a millimeter longer. Thanks to anyone who helps.

GT520 is a PCI and should fit the 546, line it up as ^^^^ shows and press hard, dont ram it in there, but apply a bit of force.

Hello My first post
Anyway i really need to upgrade my computers graphics card ( Nvidia 7600 GS 512mb intergrated version) as its flagging in this day and age and its stopping me playing most games now (i can just scrape skyrim but it falls under its min requirments) I will get a top of the range laptop soon when i go to uni but will keep my desktop for now so i need to add a better graphics card (Rest seem to be fine for the mo) .The problem is the integrated cards is already in the PCI express slot (opened up comp and i can see it in the slot) will be safe to remove the board and would a new card function in it Thanks for the help.

A:Integrated graphics card in PCI-Express slot

If the 7600 is in the PCI e slot, by definition it is not integrated. You should be able to pull it out and swap in a newer card without any issues, so long as your power supply can handle it. Be sure to remove your old graphics drivers before performing the upgrade.

I have recently bought a used Dell Power Edge 1950 with two Dual Core 2.66 GHz Xeon processors and 32G of RAM, which only came with on-board vga graphics card. Searched on dell site and found that NVS 290 x1 (nVidia Quadro 256MB DDR2) can be used with this server. Bought one, installed it and installed the drivers, by the way, I am using Windows 2008 server Enterprise edition 64 bit.

I can see the graphics card in device manager and no issues no conflicts, but there is no output from it. I can not see this card in the display settings dialog box also.

As this is a server, Dell does not allow us to disable the on-board vga card and there is no option to chose pci slot as the primary video as well.

please help me out ...

Thanks in advance.

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.

Hi all,

The first computer I connect to the wireless works fine, but I have had to self-assign IP addresses for other computers/devices using the 10.0.1.x spectrum. I originally thought it was a problem with my airport express. However, my roommate recently tried to plug directly to the modem and his computer did not get an IP address (he changed his settings to allow for an automatic assignment). Is this something I can fix on my own or do I have to call the ISP and maybe get the modem replaced? Or is it easy enough they can diagnose over the phone? Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Pentium 4 915 express chipset

Pentium 4 is single-core.
The 915 chipset you have won't support Core 2 Duo, so your best bet is likely to be a new computer. If your software is 64-bit compatible then it would be worthwhile basing your system build on a x64 capable CPU and using 4Gb RAM. A quad-core is made for this these kinds of applications ( video capture, editing, transcoding, sound editing, composing etc.)

A:Hauppauge 1800 card doesn't look right in PCI Express x16 slot

I can't speak to the 1800 tuner, but I have the 1250 and it goes right into the PCI-E x1 slot. I think you have to install the Hauppage drivers before the card, and/or ignore the M$ "found new hardware" wizard. The 1250 is just a single tuner, that the only difference.

The 1250 card is on the same size PC board as the 1800. My board only has one PCI-E x 16 lane, so the the tuner has no other place to go but a PCI-E x 1 slot. It works just fine there. It didn't change the system date.

I don't think it, "doesn't look quite right there, but I had no preconception of how it was supposed to look in the first place.

But when I plug everything in where it should go (and yes I put the monitor cord on the new video card), the screen tells me that it's not receiving a signal from the monitor. It tells me the Monitor is on, but it still doesn't work.

There is no 'beep' or anything. My power supply is perfectly sufficient.

Ok, you spelled everything right, thats a good sign . Does you computer power up? Do lights come on and does your hard drive whirl to life?

Is there usually a beep? What exactly is your powersupply, its probably enough but...and there probably isn't an option in the bios, not for an emachine, so right now, I will blame emachines because their homo .

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.

I've been to Intel's website, and downloaded both the .exe and the .zip files of the subject driver, and neither one of the installation packages work. It gets toward the end and comes back with "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver installer has encountered a problem and needs to close." I've also reported this to Intel's tech support via email (as this is the only method of contact that they seem to accept). I was asked a bunch of questions by way of a form, that had nothing to do with their installation package crapping out. So to make a long story short, I have to wait until Intel gets back with me, but really need the driver in a more expedient amount of time.

A:PCI express question

pci-e x16 is like having the bandwidth of 16 pci-e x1 slots. Pci-e x16 is faster than agp, but pci-e x1 is slower than agp, but faster than regular pci. Pci, Pci-e x16, and agp 8x are all different and incompatible. A pci-e x1 card can go in a pci-e x16(or x8, x4) slot though.

There is one pci-e x1 video card I know of.
It's not for gaming though.

Pci-e x1 is very short(less than pci), and pci-e x16 is long(longer than pci).
If it's longer than a pci slot it likely is pci-e x16.

Hello guys, i have a Biostar GF7050V-M7 motherboard, and i am buying a Diamond ATI Radeon HD 3870 videocard, but it says that it requires "PCI Express 2.0 X16" and my Mobo only says that it has a "PCI Express X 16" slot, will this videocard work in this Mobo? or what is this 2.0 version thing?



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"

A:Nic Express Card Auto Detect Problem

The problem will always be with you. You will always wonder whether a connection issue is caused by your computer or the ethernet card. That will drive you crazy on the road.
Ethernet cards are almost perfect nowadays. You have to really abuse them to make them fail. Connection is simply automatic for 97 percent of users.
Clean your connectors, check your internal socket, and perhaps clean it with some post or contact cleaner and a que tip.
I suspect the Belkin, and would insist upon an exchange.
We service hundreds upon hundreds of laptops and their ethernet cards. We have not seen any fail.
But you can see changes in Belkin from time to time. Belkin is not a manufacturer. They have no design engineers. They are a marketing company, though a very good one. You will see differnet Belkin cards, depending on which country you are in, and which side of the country.
Give Belkin a chance to get thngs right... when they say, "Take it back to the store," do so. Trade it for a LinkSys, Cisco, DLink, Netgear, IBM, Adaptec, or SIIG. Tell the store Belkin told you to do so.

A:Dell Inspiron 1505 & Express Cards...

when you use cellphone internet service AKA cell-fi, AKA EVDO, your data usage is limited by contract. This type of service is designed primarily for email downloading and web browsing. Downloading files quickly will use up your alloted 50mb limit. Some cell phone contracts state that going over this limit will either hit you with large fees or they reserve the right to terminate your contract for being in breach. This is because cellphone internet has limited bandwidth to start with. Cell phones work primarily by "time-slicing". That is to say, not everyone is using the same tower at the same time. Your cell phone internet card, slices this time. The more you use it -say by downloading, the more time you are hogging from the tower. This cuts or reduces service for regular cell phone users.

Cell phone internet service is expensive and primarily designed for business travelers who need to check their emails on the go. It is not designed for heavy internet use. Use your wifi card on your laptop for that ( and go to a coffee shop or other wifi provider.)

EVDO / cell-fi service is also limited in speed due to bandwidth limitations. You can purchase bigger bandwidth of course, at a premium.

Hi, I was wondering what the difference between PCI express and AGP was. CAn you put a AGP video card in a PCI express slot? Thanks for any help.

A:Difference between PCI express and AGP

They are simply different interface types for graphics cards. Compatibility between any given video card and a motherboard is determined by the type of graphics interface they have.

No, you cannot put an AGP graphics card into a PCI-Express slot.
A PCI-Express interface only works with a PCI-Express graphics card. An AGP interface only works with an AGP graphics card.

The main difference is speed. PCI-Express is newer, and the highest PCI-Express speed is x16. The highest AGP speed is x8. Allegedly, PCI-Express is faster than AGP. However, it has been argued that there is not much difference in performance between these two slots.

I've seen many graphic cards and motherboards coming out this year. They support PCIe. I heard that PCIe slot is faster than AGP slot.

There are at least 3 slots of PCIe on many modern motherboards I've seen. (probably 1x,4x, 16x)
- I'm wondering what devices or hardware would use PCIe slot beside the graphic cards?
- Why modern motherboards (today) give you 3 or 4 slots of PCIe?
(Graphic card (single) would only need one slot of it.)
Sound card/modem/etc still use PCI slot, aren't they?
- Anyone knows any motherboard that gives you PCIe slots (2 or 3) and also more than 3 PCI slots? (mostly, I found only 3 PCI slots and PCIe slot on many motherboards)

Thank you for answers...

Okay, I bought a new laptop recently, and I have a problem. Almost every game I try to play says, "AGP is not enabled....", and it tells me its needed for best performance. How do I enable it? I googled it, and I couldnt find anything, so I decided to ask here. My system specs are:

Computer Maker: TOSHIBA
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.70GHz
Memory: 1014MB RAM
Hard Drive: 200 GB
Video Card: Mobile Intel(R) 945GM


A:How do I enable AGP on my Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset family card?

From what I've read, you have an onboard graphics card(on your motherboard) I'm not sure if you have just that onboard card, or if you just have another card. If so, you could go into your BIOS(usually delete/f1/f2 at startup, one of those keys) read through it a bit. I know that sometimes there's an 'enable AGP' option, or anything that looks like it.

However, it doesn't look like you have an AGP card in your laptop.
Check that out first though. You might also want to check if you have the correct drivers for your card installed. On a side notenboard cards aren't very good for games, but they might handle a few.

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.

Well, I just upgrade my PSU to a Ultra 500w one, and decided I might as well get a Gfx card now that my system can support it. :grinthumb

My question is, what would you guys recommend in the $100 to $120 range? I don't need a high-end card and cant have one that needs an extra open slot for a fan. What GPU should I go with, and what manufacturer should I get the card from? I was looking at Gigabyte, but have never had any experience with thier products (other than a server motherboard that killed a brand new PSU :blackeye: ).

A:Looking for an ok PCI Express card.

$120 card don't need a 500w psu - at most a 350w one. i would wait for the g80s to come out in a few weeks, there will be a sizeable price drop on everything else. Card brand doesn't affect performance(its still the same card), but it does affect warranty terms and the bundle that comes with the card.

EVGA 7600gt $149

ASUS 7900 gs $206

i would wait for the price to drop on the 7900 gs and buy it in a couple of weeks.

What is your current gpu? What do you intend to use this for? be specific - what games, modelers, etc...

.....For the least amount of money?

I currently have Pentium 4 630 socket 775
2GB (2 x 1GB) PC3200 Corsair DDR dual channel mode
Geforce 6600 256MB AGP

After trying to find all possible motherboards, it turns out I am forced to abandon my beloved memory, and video card I worked so hard to get because all the newer motherboards dont use them anymore. I can, however, keep my cpu because all the next generation Core 2 duo boards support my Pentium 4, So I'm a bit happy there.

If I get this board, I can reuse my memory and save me a load of money

But it has questionable quality

Anyone recommend a good solid Conroe motherboard under $100?

and DDR2 Memory brand and speed?

and a good video card under $150

This is my first time making the big expensive switch to PCI express.

Any help appreciated

A:How would I make a jump onto the PCI express bandwagon?

I would stick with what you have for right now, I mean you have a very decent video card as it is. You would be throwing alot of memory away also.

Im confused whether this boad has a fully capable PCI express x16 slot, or a PCI exress lite slot that runs slower.

Most boards I see with both ddr and ddr2 have only chopped down versions of PCI express x16, like PCIe-lite for example.

I'm not sure if this does too.

Any help appreciated!

Its specs say that its Front Side Bus is 800MHz or 1000MHz, so can it support a CPU that has 2000MHz Bus? Also, is it good for gaming? cuz i want to put a AMD X2 4800+ on it, and run it for lineage 2.

A:Asus A8N 32-SLI-Deluxe NVIDIA Socket 939 ATX Motherboard/Audio/PCI Express/SLI....

It supports 1000MHz Hyper Transport (2000 MT/s), so yes it does support the AMD X2 4800+ (socket 939).

Yes, it is good for gaming. Not the best board in the world for overclocking, but it is a stabe board with some nice specs. But the question is, if you are building a NEW system, why 939? I'd recommend going for the AM2 if you are sticking to AMD, or even better, a core duo system.

I have recently purchased a 'XFX GeForce 6800 Xtreme PCI-E 512MB DDR3' and only just read that a PCI-E slot is needed..well i have no idea if my motherboard supports this or not.

I know my motherboard support both PCI and AGPX8 based cards..but is PCI-Express a different slot alltogether?

here is a pic of my motherboard.. maybe this pic will help

Hi Folks I have nagging problem that I m not able to find answers for It is this I currently using a P GHz machine with a front side bus of and a AGP Geforch GT video card AGP by PCI Express out-performed This machine is producing FPS using the Counter Strike video Stress test I wanted to upgrade my system to a PCI Express system So I purchased a Asus motherboard P RD - MX that supported my current P CPU and Ram PCI Express out-performed by AGP and I purchased a Geforch GS PCI Express out-performed by AGP x PCI Express video card When I tested this new PCI express system with the Counter Strike video Stress Test it got less than FPS The AGP machine outperformed the PCI Express system by FPS I was shocked I thought that PCI Express was to be faster than AGP Now I concerned about ever using a PCI Express system Surly I missing somthing I am very interested in reading what your thoughts might be on why such a huge performance drop Please Advise Kind Regards JB nbsp

A:PCI Express out-performed by AGP

It's not PCI-Express x16's fault, it's the graphics card's.

A 6600GT is faster than a 7300GS. To compare correctly, you should've compared an AGP 6600GT to a PCI-Express x16 6600GT. But even then, results would be the same.

The idea is that PCI-E x16 allows twice the bandwith AGP offers. So to compare, you must use a card that actually takes advantage of the extra bandwith PCI-E provides. For example, compare the fastest AGP card to the fastest PCI-E x16 card (7800GS vs. 7950GTX).

Well, first of all what is pci express x16, or 16x whatever it is, lol, because I have seen at a lot of motherboard specifications where some say pci express slots and other say pci expres x16 slot, what is the difference? and in pics they look the same..... and i see cards that say pci express required and some say pci express x16 required, once again, what is the difference...... most newer cards say they need pci express x16, amd my mother says it has pci express, again.... it confuses me, lol, can anyone give me a hand why some say x16 and some dont?

A:I have a question about pci express


The thing with the 16x means the speed of your pci express slot. Usually you can find the speed of your motherboards pci express slot speed by looking on your computer manufacturers website. Are you upgrading your video card? If so, tell me your system specs and maybe i can help you

Sup everyone

I've been look at different motherboards for my system, and want something with PCI Express. However, all of the motherboards with PCI Express have either 1 or 2 "x16" slots and 2 or 3 "x1" slots.

How important is it to have the extra PCI Express x16 slot? And what kind of cards are being made for the PCI Express x1 slot? Basically, should I dish out bucks for the extra "x16" slot or stick it out with the "x1" slots?

A bonus question: are there motherboards coming out that have only the PCI Express slots? I plan on waiting a couple of months to see what Processor improvements AMD and Intel come up with before buying, and want to know whether there are new motherboards coming out as well


A:PCI Express question

The slot you should be interested in is the X16 one. It's used for video cards. It's faster than AGP, although not too much.

The X1 slot are nearly useless right now. They will someday replace the standard PCI.

the 1900XTX is the best. Even the 7900GTX can't compare. I suppose the 1900XT and the XTX are the same, but you get more stock clock speeds, so maybe the overclocking spectrum is a little broader. And as you said, you're willing to pay the money. So 1900XTX it is!
