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.)

What is the safest, most stable and highest clock speed this CPU can go up to? I just figured out how to overclock it, and I understand that it can be dangerous and must be done only by a few notches at a time. Before I had it clocked at 2.11 GHz (Original) but now I have it clocked at 2.12 GHz. What is the maximum clock speed it can go up to?
 

A:What is the maximum clock speed an AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 4000+ can go up to?

I have taken one of those up to 2.4Ghz, but I didn't go any higher. Before you overclock, also make sure your heatsink will be able to handle cooling it.

And remember that all CPU's are different, just because somebody can get theirs up to 5Ghz doesn't mean someone else with the same CPU can.

A:Mobile Athlon runs at 40% speed

The Barton 2400+ is supposed to be clocked at 1800MHz. Check whether AMD Cool And Quiet is enabled in the BIOS. If it is, disable it. The CPU should then definitely function at 1800MHz at all times. Cool And Quiet usually lowers the speed when the system is idle to conserve power.

The Bus Speed should be 266MHz with the multiplier at 13.5, I think.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!


What happens if you run a game or a large program? The processor should increase the the max power. Today most processors can idle therefore they don't use max power.

Just set minimum to the lowest it can go and let the computer handle it. I this case, 0. That way the computer will adjust the frequency of the CPU when it needs to. Otherwise it will stay at the minimum.

They have the same clock speed, same cache, same interface, and virtually the same performance in benchmarks... (the cores are different, thats it [and only on some models])
So whats the difference justifying the 200-250 Dollar price break????
Also, the Process may be different... is 130 nm or 90 nm better? and why?

Hello,
I would like to ask you about my problem in Window 7 professional 32bit.
I just reinstall it, and update it. But when I change Processor Power Management at 5% min and 80% max in power plan at both battery and plugin, so when I am in Windows everything works fine, but when I start a game in full-screen, this power plan will change to 100% for max and min, and stay like that.

I change it as Administrator. It is on laptop Toshiba A300D.
But before this last reinstall everything works fine. Really don't know where problem is.
Have you any ideas? Thanks.

My laptop (an HP Pavilion) has been running hot for a while. I haven't checked actual temps, but it just feels hot and the fan runs ALL the time. I was just looking in the advanced power management settings (Vista OS), and discovered under "processor power management" that both the maximum AND minimum processor state were set to 100%. Does that mean the processor is running at full power all the time? If I understand correctly and the minimum state is the lowest the processor will go when idle, wouldn't it make more sense to set this much lower? And if so, how low is advisable?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Processor power management settings in Vista

You can lower the Minimum state, that would indeed help. You could try setting the power management scheme to HP Recommended or Balanced, those will automatcially the recommended settings.

I would also buy a can of compressed air and thoroughly blow out all the vents on the laptop.

And if its an HP Pavilion series then you should check into BIOS updates. Many HP's have severe issues with overheating and failures, see here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en
Even if your laptops is not on that list, there are improvements in fan control for other models as well. You can check for BIOS updates here: http://welcome.hp.com/country/ca/en/support.html

Also make sure you have Service Pack 2 installed for Vista, it also includes some changes to power management.

I am happy to add more RAM as the first option, but there seem to be a fair few 939 boards out there.

I don't game, and my main interest is sound, so overclocking is not important.

Can you chaps please suggest a board I might buy? Has to be around the £50/60 ($100/120) mark.

Mainly, the price. The 4000+ is a newer chip if it is the San Diego. The FX-53 will have unlocked multipliers but to be truthful I'd rather have the 4000+ San Diego than the FX-53.

The older 4000+ was 130 nm technology while the newer one is 90 nm tech. 90 nm runs cooler on less vcore and has SSE3 instructions.

A:Is an AMD athlon 64 4000+ an overkill for gaming???

I guess it all depends on how long you want the CPU to last you.

I have the 3700 (939) and it performs amazingly, and it'll hold me over for some time yet. I don't think there would be much of a difference between the 4000 and my 3700 in today's games (maybe a few FPS), but as newer CPU intensive games come out, the difference will become more noticable.

If on a budget, I'm tempted to tell you to go for 2Gb of ram and a hot video card (7800GTX or X1900) and stick with the 3500 for now. It'll last you a good year or so before it starts lagging on you. Then upgrade to a nice dual core CPU when the prices are cheaper next year after the release of the M2 CPUs.

When trying to install Photoshop Album 1.0, I receive this message, "This operating system is not supported by Adobe Photoshop Album. We support Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 , XP Intel Pentium III or 4 processor".

Could my problem with installation be the Athlon processor? When purchasing this computer, our salesman convinced us that the Athlon was just as good as the Pentinum Processor. Any thoughts on this? My computer is less than a week old and having serious thoughts about returning it. I have had problems with other installations. Am I to expect more problems with software and the Athlon processor. Any helpful suggestions will be appreciated. I am getting desperate for advice about the processor.

What the message is telling you is that Windows Media Center Edition 2005 is not one of the operating systems that Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 supports. It has nothing to do with whether an Intel processor or an AMD processor is installed. I checked the system requirements for the newer version 2.0, and it also is not supported by Windows MCE 2005.

By the way, Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 has a 13.5 MB patch for it and will upgrade it to version 1.0.1. You can get it from here.

Upon attempting to install the new drivers, its detecting conflicting device software already installed that may impair the functionality of the new device software.

When I authorize it to remove the conflicting software, I'm getting an error that says "Uninstallation can't find standard mouse driver i8042prt.sys in windows system directory. So you can't uninstall this software." I do find that file in a number of locations.

Strangely enough, the mouse does the rudimentary stuff but the software isn't out there to allow programming of the programmable buttons.

Any ideas??

Hello Friends!
I recently installed TuneUp Utilities 2013 on my system(Windows XP).
I noticed a new power saving feature in it which allows you to enable Economy Mode for the same.
However, i have realized that the CPU usage has gone up and is generally at approx. 10% as compared to 4% previously. But one thing to notice is that Commit Charge has decreased a lot, and does not go up more than 350M which used to be approx. 450M before.
So I wanted to know whether power consumption of a pc depends on CPU usage or Commit Charge? Or is there an issue with the software?
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

A:TuneUp Utilities 2013 power management issue

Power consumption is largely determined by CPU usage. Commit charge has nothing to do with it. It is actually very difficult to explain in a way that is both easy to understand and accurate. I won't try.

As for TuneUp Utilities 2013:
It is yet another one of those do everything utilities that appeals so much to novice users. It contains some useful functions, most of which are already a part of any modern OS, as well as some potentially dangerous ones. In particular a registry cleaner which generally cause more problems than they solve.

I wouldn't use it if it was free, let alone for the asking price.

I recently built a new computer (Intel mobo, Core 2 Duo quad-core, 4GB RAM) and installed the Windows 7 beta (32-bit).

One issue that I have observed seems to be related to power management. After about a half-hour of non-use, the computer seems to go into sleep mode. The screen shuts down, all the fans stop, and the hard drive and power lights go out. It then sits there for about a minute like this, and then, for no reason that I can see, it powers back up again. The fans rev up, the lights come on, the screen takes on a glow (though nothing is displayed), etc.

After a few minutes, it powers down again. After another minute, it powers back up. This cycle seems to go on indefinitely.

Does anone have any idea what might be causing this or what I might do to determine what the problem is? I have never seen anything like this before.

Thanks!

Hi, i just purchased an ENVY 360 with bang olufsen speakers. it actually runs with the realtek hd driver. when i plug in the headphones, every time the computer is silen for about 5 seconds it enters power saving move. then when a sound starts it makes a cracking noise. i have been reading about this issue for about 2 hours now and i can almost ensure that the issue is the power management the realtek does by default. unfortunately, looks like there is no option to disable this. some solutions are disabling it via regedit but i cant find the value for this.  Any ideas?

A:Crack sound headphones - power management issue

Solved!! Well not really, I found a "work around". Driver for the HP 15 ab237na works just fine! - You loose the Bang n Olufsen config tool (nothing that normal windows config can't do)- The card still makes a crack noise just when sound starts, however this one is acceptable- Card still goes into power saving mode so your battery is safe  HP, please give us a permanent solution!  If anyone needs this: Realtek High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver    6.0.1.7584 Rev.B    227.7 MB    Jan 8, 2016http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73001-73500/sp73189.exe  Taken from this model:http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-pavilion-15-ab200-notebook-pc-series/8499306/mode...

Hmmm. Can't believe what you read nowadays anymore. I bought a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 to replace an ailing optical laser mouse that's on its last legs, and on the package it said that one "AA" battery would last for one entire year without replacing. What it meant was, it would have took until the next spring before it's time to replace the battery.

Apparently, the mouse doesn't think like that, it appears, and when I was looking down at it, there was a red warning light indicating that the single battery had already been exhausted from use. Between surfing the web and playing some Team Fortress 2 now and then this is more than just a "mobile" mouse.

A:Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 - Low Battery Already?

I have never use that mouse but the first thing I would do is try another battery. Make a note of the date installed and go from their. At the present time I have 4 Microsoft battery powered mice with no problems. Many years ago I did have a Microsoft mouse that eat batteries like a puppy eating pork chops. I just through the dam thing away but you might be able to RMA yours. I have been reading reviews and most people complain about is it gets hot with heavy use. I really don't know how that could happen.

You might be better off just getting an overclockable MoBo because then you can probably overclock your CPU to past 4000+ speeds and when you need a new CPU you can just get a X2 4800+.

Hi!

I'm stumped. Can anyone explain why there are several amd processors i.e. phenom ii x2 550, that feature a hypertransport rate of 4000 mhz but no mobos that support a rate above 2600 mhz? I'm guessing I'm misunderstanding what these figures represent. Could use an explanation before I pick out a motherboard for the above processor.

A:Amd Athlon 64 processor

What do you mean 32 bit? If you are running a 32 bit operating system that is what it is telling you, your processor is 64 bits but that won't show up unless your running a 64 bit OS. Your processor is a single core running at 2.0 Ghz which is ok but not the best for gaming, your graphics card also isn't exactly top of the line, its a budget DX10 card so I wouldn't be expecting to be playing the newer games maxed out.

Hi, I am thinking of agetting an athlon 64 cpu.

I coudln't believe it when I saw they had a 1600MHZ FSB!

What speed DDR memory is necessary to run with that??

I know since I have and amd xp 3000+ machine 333mhz, I just use pc2700(333mhz) ddr memroy and set the ratio to 1:1

but 1600mhz ddr memory doesnt exist!
My second question is what is the difference between athlon 64 cpu and athlon 64 FX-53 cpus?

The FX series seems to be a lot more expensive, is there a huge performance difference?
How do these compare with the top intel p4 cpus?
Third, is there a WINDOWS 64 bit OS, and Is that recommended to use with an athlon 64 cpu? or just go with regular windows xp home or pro.
thanks
 

A:questions about the new athlon 64 processor...

The memory controller on the FX chip is 128bit, the Athlon 64 is 64bit.

Since the memory controller is onboard the cpu, you really don't have a FSB per say since the memory is controlled by the hypertransport controller and not by the mobo.

Your memory bandwidth from the dual channel would be the same, but the speed of the request through the memory controller is much faster do to the integration of the controller on the cpu. Therefore theorically the FX could perform request from the memory at twice the rate than the regular version. It's no longer the FSB that only determines the speed of requests to the ram. The Athlon 64 FX memory subsystem speed beats the P4 by over 20% and leaves the Athlon XP behind by more than 81%

There is no official 64bit windows release. Furthermore, when the OS is released it will only be available as OEM to ensure support for all equipment it's used with. Therefore, even when it does come available, it may not work on the 64bit system you build today. Still the AMD 64 bit cpu's are the way to go due to price/performance, and you may, in the future, get windows 64 support for your PC. If not, at least you can move the CPU to new hardware (mobo, etc) and buy some OEM equipment with the 64bit windows later on when it's released.

It's kinda like buying a printer back in 97 only to find the manufactuer didn't release a driver for winxp. It may work later, but there's no sure bet for your hardware, only the CPU is a safe one.

For the OS, I'd recommend winXP pro. I prefer win2000, but it looks like support will be running out on it shortly..

I believe when you were talking about 1600mhz DDR, you were talking about the speed of memory requests from the cpu through hypertransport. Like I mentioned, this is not the FSB and isn't dependant on the FSB anymow...

Hello everyone.

I built my new AMD setup two days ago, and today I just wanted to
check if the thermal paste was properly spread after the HSF was placed on the CPU.

The only problem is.. the heatsink seems to be pasted onto the processor,
and I don't want to damage the processor by ripping it out of the socket...

Could anyone tell me a manuever or method to applying enough pressure to remove the HSF and NOT rip out the processor?

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
 

A:HELP! Trying to remove athlon 64 939 processor!

The best way to tell if you applied the thermal paste correctly is to monitor the CPU temperatures while it is operating. If you remove the HSF (Heat sink Fan) unit then you'll have to clean off the old thermal paste from both the CPU and HSF and reapply a new drop and stick it all back together. Of course in 2 days you'll want to remove it again and see if it spread out correctly, so you'll have to clean off the old paste and....Yadda Yadda Yadda.

How much paste did you apply? A drop in the middle of the CPU cap about the size of a small grain of rice or half a bee-bee is the correct amount. Any more than this and you run the risk of actually insulating the CPU from the HSF rather than connecting them thermally.

Did you clean off the surface of both the CPU and HSF before applying Thermal paste? These surfaces need to be oil (like your greasy hands oil) and lint free before sticking them together.

There should be NO paste leaking around the edges. See 1 above.

What is your CPU and what temps are you seeing? If you insist on inspecting your work then gently twist the HSF off of the CPU. Don't pry it off, don't strain yourself, avoid sharp instruments. It may be a little sticky but will eventually work free. I have used a blow dryer to heat up the HSF and CPU junction, just a little, to work things free on older installs but be advised that dry, hot air blowing across an electronic surface is a prime breeding ground for static electricity and all the nasty repercussions that come with it.

If you applied too much thermal paste then yes, you need to remove the HSF, clean the surfaces and install correctly. Be patient and do no harm here. See the Arctic Silver site for some good illustrated instructions on the proper amount of paste to apply.

KNOWN LIMITATIONS:
The processor performance state may not be restored to the maximum state if the CPU runs at 100 percent. This problem occurs if the computer is 100 percent busy when the power policy changes.

Does that mean my processor could be damaged permanently? And what do you think about that driver, should have I installed it or not?

Install it if you intend to use cool'n'quiet. If you like for your system to be silent when you're web-surfing, listening to music, etc. it could certainly help. Otherwise there's no need.

Firstly, please can we NOT HAVE another AMD vs Intel debate. And if we have to, can it get appended to existing threads?

Secondly, that AMD chip you mention is likely a great piece of equipment. Of course it will be good for games. I've got an Athlon 2100+ and its fine for games, and you (apparently) will have 50% more raw processing power - go get 'em , tiger!

This does not answer the question of whether an Athlon or P4 is the best for you. You'd have to tell us a lot more about your requirements, your budget and your expectations first.

They have the same cores but the larger cache will help a lot more than the minimal difference in clock speeds. So I think the 5200+ is a better buy. Just because something is more expensive, doesn't mean it's better.

A:How to safely overclock an AMD Athlon II X2 240 processor

Amd makes a really nifty, comprehensive piece of performance software called AOD. It can be had here:
http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/amd-overdrive/Pages/overview.aspx
Most x2 2xx models will OC to between 3.5-3.8Ghz depending on the motherboard you are using. You should list the rest of your components so we know what we are dealing with, including the PSU you are using. assuming you have quality components, you have the advantage of many others OC'ing this model before you. using AOD is nice as you can shorten the time to OC before making the final stable settings semi permanent in the bios if you choose, or setup an OC profile in AOD to use only during intense operations or gaming if you like. If you want, you can jump right to a setting of 3.4Ghz by raising the HT ref to 242 and the V-core to 1.475 and running the built in stability test for 15 minutes. from there raise the HT ref by 5-10 Mhz and run the stability test until it breaks. You can then raise the Vcore in intervals of .025-.05 until stable. Remember your CPU has a locked multiplier so you will be OC'ing the whole system when you raise the HT ref clock (memory,Northbridge, etc) you may want to drop the HT/NB/CPU multiplier back while you find the maximum OC to eliminate it as a possible limiting factor. a couple things to keep in mind...

1) watch temperatures. Its a REALLY good idea to have after-market cooling (heatsink/Fan) while OC'ing
2) make sure you have adequate PSU, both in capacity and quality.
3) the maximum Vcore for this generation of CPU's is 1.55v, better yet, stay at or under 1.5v -1.525v
4) with very good cooling (and if you want to push up over 1.5 V) you may get over 4.0Ghz.

Here is TechPowerup's Oc of an x2 240, you can get an idea of the settings they used to get 3.8Ghz OC (typical OC for this CPU if you have decent MB,PSU etc)

Here is a look at the control screen of the AOD

Greetings, all.

I've been away a long time. I have a question and hope I got the right forum. BTW, this isn't about the XP OS but is about testing a processor.

I just bought an Athlon 64 X2 socket 939 processor (4400) to be used in a later build. I am currently running a spare XP system using an Athlon 64 (4000) processor.

What is the easiest way to verify that the X2 processor I just bought isn't dead, using my current system but not hosing it up so that I can continue using my originally configured system (the Athlon 64) after the functional check of the X2 processor. I don't want to have to reload XP or repair it if possible. Thanks in advance.

You have asked a question that does not have an answer [at least in the current form of your question]

You need to provide a LOT more info; exact mb installed, what pw supply you are running, etc, etc, etc.

Note if this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, the only one who can tell you is the oem.

Hi all,
I want to connect my VCR to the computer to transfer old home movies to DVD.
The Analog to DV device requires a 1 GHz processor. Mine is 498 MHz.

Regarding the speed, will the device work only slowly or not at all?

Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Video capture device speed vs. processor speed

It is not a matter of slow or not at all. It is most likely a matter of dropped frames. If you have a cheaper video capture card [one without hardware decoding] it will probably work however you will not like the result.

Video editing / encoding is cpu intensive. I would hate to think how long it would take to encode the video file after you capture it [with that cpu]

To give you some idea, it takes me about 15 min to encode approx 1hr of video with an intel dual core cpu. With yours it will be hours.

I need to order a new desktop for my office to replace a 3 year old machine that runs at 3.2 Ghz. The new machines that Dell offers only has this option:

Intel® Core™2 Extreme QX6700 (8MB L2 Cache,2.66GHz,1066 FSB)

I don't think there is a standard measuring stick that is used to compare all the processor speeds that I can find or understand. I work with CAD programs that use up a lot of resources and I typically get the fastest available and max the RAM. With all the latest software that I have to install, I need the new machines to run faster than the ones they replace.

Can anyone tell me how this 2.66GHz processor compares to my current machine? I don't have the exact specs for it, this is what it lists on the dell support site for my system - PROCESSOR, 80532K, 3.2GHZ, 1M, 533, M0.

I am looking to invest in the AMD Athlon? X2 Dual-Core, but Im not sure which mobo I would need to be able to have it work properly.

Unless you guys can just recommend a good upgrade to my cpu which wont have me get a new mobo.

thanks guys!

I just did a search, & I think the socket 478 is for Intel CPU's. If you want an AMD CPU,
you could probably find a combo deal of CPU & motherboard at NewEgg, TigerDirect, or
Fry's Electronics at reasonable prices over just buying a 3.0 ghz CPU.

A:Vista wont boot after Athlon 64 Processor upgrade

Vista is a bit temperamental about Hardware changes. It freaked out last time when i needed to repair a damaged DVD drive and booted Vista without one.
See if you can boot Vista again using your old CPU. (Note: For CPU and RAM changes you need to clear the CMOS via the jumper on the motherboard.)
If you can successfully boot back into Vista, un-install the following drivers.
CPU
Disk Drives
IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.

Then turn off your System, add the new CPU back in, clear the CMOS once again and then boot.
Let Vista re-install the drivers at where un-installed if it boots...

I'm not interested in OC'ing or anything, just want to be running at the right speed.

That is definately not the correct speed for your processor, I run an xp2000+ and its normal clock speed is 1666 Mhz. In your bios there is a setting for front side bus (fsb) speed, u need to set that correctly for your particular processor.

I bought a system in March and everyyhing is going fine, however I have noticed something that I would like to clarify. My system has an AMD Athlon XP 2000+ however when I run a diagnostic tool to tell me what speed the processor is running at it says 1245mhz, it also tells me that my motherboard is running at a max speed of 1250mhz. My prcessor should be faster than this so I am wondering if I need to reset the jumpers on my mother board to increase the clock speed. The only other thing that I can think of is that the wrong processor was installed from day one. My motherboard is an ECS K7S5A
Note that the BIOS is telling me that my CPU type is Athlon XP and from what I can see from the net the XP range does not fall bellow 1800mhz.

Hi! A friend of mine has an eMachines laptop that's about 18 months old and I noticed something strange the other day. I recall the machine having an AMD Athlon XP-M processor clocked at 2.2 GHz (I believe it's an Athlon XP-M 3000+ processor). When I looked at the system control panel (the laptop is running XP Home Edition), the CPU speed was listed at 549MHz or 549MHz, or something like that.

I ran CPU-Z on the machine to confirm what I saw and it listed the same CPU speed except it would sometimes jump from 549MHz to 1049MHz and then back down to 549MHz.

I rebooted the machine and accessed the BIOS and the BIOS lists the CPU as having a speed of 2200MHz. Then I proceeded to boot XP and the system control panel displayed a speed of 768MHz.

What's going on here?

Thanks in advance!

My current computer is composed of an AMD Athlon X2 4200+, 2.2GHz, Nvidia 9600GT 512MB video card, 2 Gigs Dell Ram, 250GB HD, Antec True Power Trio TP3-650 650W ATX12V Power Supply with Three 12V Rails. I was thinking of upgrading to a 5400+ or even a 6000+, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with my motherboard or w/e. If anyone could help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Here is the info from CPU-Z in .htm format.
 

A:Upgrading my processor (Dell E521, AMD Athlon x2 4200+, 2.2Ghz)

If the dell BIOS allows it, the 5400 would be safest to upgrade to. 6000 and higher and you'll risk blowing up the board. The difference is 2.8 vs 3.0ghz.

I don't think a 600Mhz upgrade will help much. But here is a chart with Quake4: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/...,1254,1226,1280,1316,1313,1312,1284,1310,1309

Going from 81fps to 95fps. Dell RAM is usually 533 or 667Mhz RAM, if its 533, going to 800Mhz would help a bit. A 9600GT is a fine card... going to a $160 ATI 4850 card would be a bit of a boost, that is faster than the old $600 8800GTX.

I am going to be buying a new computer in the near future and was wondering if backups, file copying, and defragging will speed up very much?

It seems like that at some point, the drives would not be able to keep up with the processor and faster processors would not be needed for many or even most applications.

I am using a 1 ghz Pentium 3 computer now and am going to get a new 3 ghz computer next.

Also, recently, I read an article about the new dual core Intel chips and that sounds like something that I would like but do not know if they are out yet, and if so, do not know what they are called.
 

A:Processor speed vs hard drive speed

The main point of having a faster processor is that it runs games smoother, compresses audio and video faster, and so on. These tasks are not particularly dependent on hard disk performance. Nearly all applications will benefit from a faster processor regardless of the speed of the hard disk.

Quick question everyone.... only because I do not know much about mobile processor technology.

When doing a little price shopping, it looks like I can land an Athlon-M processor (2600+) for just about a $150 less than a Pentium-M (2.4ghz)

Im much more familiar with the world of desktops, where I normally tend to go with the Intels, but in this case I would most definately jump on the Athlon for the dollar savings.

Anyone have any expierence with the AMD mobiles? Pro's? Cons?

Im much more familiar with the world of desktops, where I normally tend to go with the Intels, but in this case I would most definately jump on the Athlon for the dollar savings.

Anyone have any expierence with the AMD mobiles? Pro's? Cons?Click to expand...

I once had a Compaq laptop with a XP-M 2000 which ran very well. My brother owns it now.

I've also heard in the past month or so that many people are using the AMD XP-M 2500 CPU in their desktops to overclock. Apparently, they don't have locked multipliers and they use less power.

Hello all,
I just had a quick question.
I recently upgraded to an athlon xp 2400.
What im wondering is that in the properties menu of my computer it registers as 1.99 GHz.Is this normal or should it 2.0 GHz or is that the basically the same thing.
I am running it on a ECS K7s5a pro Mother board if any body needs that info.
Thanks in advance for any assistance
 

A:Actual Speed For An Athlon Xp 2400

Yes this is pretty much normal. I have a xp1600 that does the same thing. There is probably a +or - percentage and this is most likely within that tolerance.

My son has a which uses a 4X AGP slot, 512mb ram, directx 8.1, ME os, 300watt ps. He cannot play Everquest but can play Medal of Honor and Spearhead on it. He can however play Everquest using the onboard Graphics card which uses the T-Bird chipset integrating a 128-bit AGP Graphics Accelerator but cannot play Medal of Honor using the onboard. Now the really weird thing is I have the same motherboard but with a 1.4 athlon, 256mb and everything I just mentioned same card, etc, and it runs both games fine. We checked the memory and it is fine. We even replaced it just in case. I cannot find any difference in any settings between the 2 computers. What's up? Any suggestions?

Im trying to improve performance on my girls Emachines EL1300 Necasary System specs are:Athlon 64 1.6Ghz Single core2Gb 400Mhz Dual channel ram160Gb sata HDDNVIDIA? GeForce? 6150SE Win 7 32BitI notice when i start an application or when i get online and surf that at times the processor useage hits 100% yet my ram is still sitting partially used at only 36% sometimes a little more (42%) Never seen it even hit anything higer than 55% or so. Shouldnt windows use the ram whne processor useage gets this high instead of bogging down system preformance and freezing? Ive checked through all running programs and use tune up utilities as well as other diagnostic and managment programs to keep things tweaked and in good running order yet this PC still is a slow old dog. Any tips ?TIA

First things first. I got this PC off my brother when he got his new one. Some things are rather disturbing me about it.

For one, it appears to have a Mobile Pentium 4 chipset inside. Now I may feel a bit stupid here but aren't they designed for Laptops?

Another thing is the processor is designed for multiple performance modes. Intel's Processor Advisor tells me the expected speed is 3.06ghz, yet the reported speed is a mere 1.6ghz, just over half of the expectation.

I've already flashed my BIOS in a vain attempt to get it working full speed and the update from the Intel site doesn't work.

Should I buy a new Processor or is there a way to fix this faggotry?
 

A:Processor Woes. Mobile Pentium 4

If it is a Mobile P4, and it's just reporting 1.6Ghz, it may be in a "power saving mode".

If you fire up a game or a demanding application, it should ramp up to its specified speed.

Although 3.06 Ghz sounds a bit high for a mobile processor.

Hi

I need your opinion. Which one of these Intel processors would be better?

Intel® Pentium® M Processor at 1.6 GHz
or
Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology† at 3.33 GHz

I am having a difficult time deciding. Dell is telling me that the first one is the more advanced. And are no longer offering the second choice.

Any info would be great!!!

Hi. If i change in Windows 10 in Power Management from Balanced to Power Saver is this safe for graphic card?
I change from Balanced to Power Saver and fps in benchmark went from 180fps to 50fps. Is there any hardware related changes due to swap from Balanced to Power Saver ?

A:Windows Power Management - Power Saver - is this safe for graphic card

Power Saver attempts to save power by reducing the CPU’s speed all the time and lowering screen brightness, among other similar settings and that may account for your fps drop when benchmarking. Doesn't sound like a good choice for your purposes.

Hey guys. I joined today because I'm deciding between two laptops and I thought I could use your help.

The laptop will be used for everyday use for the most part but I also play World of Warcraft. The game recommends at least 1g of RAM but most users suggest more. The Acer has more RAM but only a single processor. Any suggestions?

Toshiba - Satellite Laptop with Intel® Celeron® Processor:

Processor: Intel Celeron

Processor Speed: 2.2GHz

System Bus: 800MHz

Cache Memory: 1MB on die Level 2

System Memory (RAM): 2GB

Type of Memory (RAM): DDR2

Hard Drive Type: SATA (5400 rpm)

Computer Hard Drive Size: 250GB

Acer - Aspire Laptop with AMD Athlon? Single-Core Processor

Processor: AMD Athlon?

Processor Speed: 1.6GHz

System Bus: 667MHz

Cache Memory: 512KB on die Level 2

System Memory (RAM): 3GB

Type of Memory (RAM): DDR2

Hard Drive Type: SATA (5400 rpm)

Computer Hard Drive Size: 160GB
 

A:Toshiba Laptop with Intel Celeron or Acer with AMD Athlon Single-Core Processor?

both of those computers are pretty slow... and single core. the Toshiba is the better buy but the link is dead so you might be out of luck with that anyways. i don't play wow so i can't tell you what i would recommend for hardware. i will just go ahead and make the suggestion to buy something with a Core2Duo, 2GB RAM and a more high-end onboard video adapter for games. the more dedicated video power the better.
