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.)

Hello! I want to buy a Geforce Gtx 980 4GB gddr5 for my pc but I dont know if my motherboard can support it, how can I tell? my mother board is B85-G41 PC mate>, My procesor is i7 4770 3.40GHz. RAM is 16GB 1600MHz and PSU is 500W.

A:Video Card Support

From the information you provided, yes the GeForce GTX 980 will work very well with your MSI B85-G41 motherboard. You may want to keep an eye on your PSU though. 500W is the minimum system power requirement (according to the Nvidia website) to run the GeFore GTX 980. If you Overclock the GPU, it may run into some issues with the draw power coming from the PSU, and could cause it to go into an overload.

A:Vaio Windows 7 - Won't read DVD-R

Have you tried a a system file check to see if Windows can sort this issue out?
sfc /scannow (in admin mode.)
Also if you just explore the DVD do you see the list of files on it? Or is the DVD-R not 'seen' by Windows at all?
Or is the error only with the autoplay part? (Windows trying to help you choose a media player from whatever you have installed?)

I don't know what read means. I transferred some file to and from a USB 3 thumb drive. Files transferred much faster from the thumb drive to a hard disk. Looking at the image it seems that read means transfer to the hard drive but that doesn't make sense to me because in my thought process the thumb drive isn't reading it's writing to hard drive. Could someone explain to me what I am failing to understand? Thanks

A:Diskmark read/write

I am thinking about purchasing this motherboard,

But I am not sure how to tell if a video card is compatible.

Here is the card I want,

I realize the PCIe 3.0 will fit to the motherboard, but I do not know if it will be compatible.

I do not understand the difference betweeen DDR3, DDR5 and GDDR5.

Thanks for help!

A:What video cards will support this?

Yes, those two items will be compatible with each other.

DDR3 & DDR5 are VRAM types and GDDR5 is a motherboard RAM identification.

For the future, you can go >>here<< and all your parts to see if there will be any issues with compatibility.

But keep in mind that there can be other compatibility issues such as the graphics card being too long to fit in the case.

I have downloaded movies from online, then burned them onto a dvd or cd.
I can play them back from the disc on my computer but when I load them into my CD/DVD Player to watch them on the says "Can Not Read Disc" or it just says "Disc Empty".

What am I doing wrong?

A:DVD Player can not read DVD or CD

The disk will likely need to be in DVD format before your DVD Player will play it. Are you using a media builder application to burn the disk?

You can't simply burn MP4/AVI to disk and have them play. Only players that have been optimized for them will play them. And speaking from experience, even when burning the correct format, the burns may give issues reading in the player. One player may recognize the disk while another will not.

A:Dual AMD W7000 for 8 monitors - No support from AMD

Ok so if I am reading correctly this is the card you purchased correct?

Now then, you have two of these running in one machine im assuming X-Fired together so you can output on 8 displays. So the way im reading this (please correct my if im wrong) you have 8 display port adapters going to 8 different monitors (Display port to HDMI, DVI, or what?).

So here are my questions:
Which monitors have dropped off (Which card or both and which ports)?
Do you have the latest Catalyst for the Workstation cards running?
What version of windows are you running?

Here's a couple of quick things you can do to try and get all 8 working and ill see if I can't figure out the issue with you:

Try disabling eyefinity and running every monitor as an independent display.
Try rebuilding eyefinity in the control center and see if it detects all 8 monitors

One thing is that display port is designed to hold more than one monitor per port, im guessing you are using the DVI connectors since they came with it. My advice would be instead of using every port on each card, buy some of the dual display port adapters and use only the top card to run eyefinity, using 2 cards for multiple displays tends to run into issues at times especially when connecting such an extreme amount of monitors.

I have a hp pavilion dv4 with vista and it will not read either an audio or video cd. It is a tsst corp sn-s083m cddvdw and I already ran microsoft's fixit that did not work. In computer management under disk management it says no media.

A:Can't read cd dvd's

If the drive does show up in Windows, it's probably not a registry problem, and more likely a problem with the drive itself. In the computer management console, in device manager, you should see the drive listed under DVD/CD-ROM drives. Right-click the listed drive (in device manager), and click Uninstall, then click OK. Reboot the computer, and Windows should reinstall it. If it works then, you are good to go. Otherwise, I would suggest replacing the drive. The easiest replacement is an external USB CD/DVDRW drive. There are plenty of options on Amazon or at your local computer store. Good luck.

A:Which Graphics Card would my PC (support) be able to handle?

Upgrading from a GTX 260, I'm not sure I would select a 660 or 760. Unless I was going for DirectX 11 capability. The 670 requires a 500W power supply and the 770 requires a 600W power supply. So while DirectX 11 would be an upgrade, if you are wanting a large performance increase, you will need a larger power supply than 460W. Judging by the dimensions of the GTX 260, I would say the longer graphics cards (11 inches) would physically fit. Speaking of the GTX 260, nVidia specifies a 500W is required. I know the specifications allow for headroom, so it is your call whether you want to risk a card that calls for 500W.

I reinstalled Windows 7 (64bit) after moving to an SSD. Now, for some mysterious reason, I can no longer read UDF format discs (all Blueray and some DVD's are UDF).

Microsoft's Knowledge Base posts a "hotfix", but it didn't work.

I searched online and lots of people seem to have this same problem, but no one has a fix.

How is it I can WRITE udf discs but not READ them? What a pain.

(Note: I can read the discs in XP and Linux, just not Win7. Copying the discs to the HDD every time I want to read them is not a long-term solution. And I can't copy commercial BD discs anyway.)

A:Can't read UDF format discs (Win7) is for XP, but does contain some useful information and possible work-rounds. At a guess, I would expect MS to address whatever they have done wrong before too long. In the meantime, an update of the Win7 DVD driver (and/or firmware) for your actual hardware might be available. Try the website of your DVD manufacturer.

At worst, if there is no software solution within a couple of months, you might have to consider replacing the drive, at least you can return a new drive if it fails you too.

Question: Do you have a DVD Rom or a DVD burner? If you have a DVD burner then it should be able to read the blank disks so that you can add files to it.

I have a generic Flash drive 512GB that is formatted exFat. When writing files to it, the computer crashed and since then, the drive has been in a read only state (there is no write protection switch on the outside of the drive casing).

When running diskpart it says current read only state: yes. But for read only, it says no. I can clear the read only state, and it will even say successful, but the current read only state still says yes.

I have two disks that my drive won't read. It read all the others just fine, maybe 20 of them I've switched over to an external hard drive. I'm not sure why these two are being difficult. The older one won't even read. The newer one will read but it won't let me view anything or copy it over. It shows me the files but I can't open them. Is there any other way to get these photos off these disks? I've tried my laptop and my desktop which is older. No luck. Does the operating system matter? If I made the disks using an older operating system do I need to find a computer with that same system?? I know I made the newer one using the desktop I currently own. I'm just lost and frustrated, these pictures are important!

A:CD-DVD drive won't read an older photo disk

Hey wildbutterfly. I assume you were able to see and read/view the contents of each DVD disk previously on at least one of your pc's, correct?. Is it a good name brand disk (bought from a reputable dealer since I have seen fake TDK from houseware type stores, or one of the cheaper brands floating around). Try burning a DVD on either system and see if you can read/view it. I think having your prized pics burned to a good quality DVD ( along with an external drive) is the best way to go since any mechanical device can fail. If you were able to read/view these files on DVD before, and can burn and read files now (especially if the disks are the same brand),sounds like the disks might have been damaged in some way.I use a paste like cleaner from 3M for cleaning DVD disks (cleaned from the center straight to the outboard edge).

Well, as you know, the native resolution is 1920 X 1080. All the other details as to maximum should be on the HP site. What you list is for HP Canada. Pay close attention to contrast ratios as well.
The video card goes to 2040 X 1536, but I would never depend on a used graphics card to do what you want at those resolutions.
Short answer: should work, but I would want to see it in the details on the HP site.

A few of us here at Techspot were pondering how prevelent gaming on multi-monitor desktops is, and this poll is looking to gain some insight into the answer.
Hopefully we get enough votes from the Techspot membership to give us a reasonably valid snapshot.

The choices are:
1.Single screen
2.Multiple screens (please add your native screen resolution)

As a secondary question you can add in the comments section:

If you are presently using a single standard LCD/CRT monitor of 1980 x 1080 or lower and had the budget to afford to either buy multi-monitor for gaming, or spend the equivalent budget on a single screen of better colour reproduction (i.e. a 27"-30" 2560x1440 or 2650x1600 display) which would you opt for...or would you use the budget on other componentry ?
Thank you for your participation. There are no prizes.

I'll start the ball rolling....
Given the pricing structure I would always opt for quality of colour reproduction over extra screen real estate.

Hi all I have a bit of a problem wondering if someone could help, I am running windows7 64 bit It's just coming up to a year old, I had this same problem when i uninstalled Norton but I called someone and they help me remove the key that was stopping the dvd rom from working, I Now am having the same problem scince I uninstalled avg and reinstalled it. I would do what I was told to before but I cannot remember what i have to do again :/ I know it is in regedit some where but not sure on where to go after, Any help or advice would be great thank you. It will play cds but not dvds :/
thanx in advance

A:DVD will not read DVDs or DVD software but will play CDs

Do you have a Windows Vista or 7 install disk? Or even a restore disk if its a branded PC. All of those should be DVDs, so see if you can boot the computer from that disk (you won't actually go through any of the install process, just see if it boots from the disk). This will ensure that your dvd laser didn't die. The laser for cd and dvd reading are different, so it is possible that one could die while the other is still good.

You may be exactly right with it being a registry thing, but if you have a bootable disk that is a dvd we can easily rule out a hardware issue.

A:WD Passport won't read/boot

What size is that one? I had one did the same. What I did was this...

Take a freezer lock bag and stick the WD into it with folded paper towel in put inside it.
Lock the bag
Stick the bag into the freezer for 30 hours
Once 30 hours have passed
Take it out and leave it in the bag until it reaches room temp
Now connect it to your PC
It should now been seen.
Since then my WD still works with no issues and the clipping sound has gone too.

Note: Same method can be use on 3.5 HDD too just have to stick the folded paper towel on the circuit side in the freezer lock bag.
Tested both method on failing 2.5/3.5 HDD along with USB WD Passport. Works always.

Does anyone have any experience dealing with ASUS customer support? I've got a P8P67 LE that won't post (it's also got the faulty 3GB SATA Intel bug and is eligible for the recall.)

Problem is, I can't get ahold of ASUS at all. I've filled out their online form for the recall using the mobo serial number, but when I try to look up the status on their status page it tells me my serial number/email is invalid. I can't register again because i'm already in the system. So I filled out a customer service request 10 days ago and haven't heard back. When I call I've been transferred around, disconnected and left messages that haven't been returned.

Anyone have any advice on how to get ahold of them? I've got a dead board, eligible for recall, and it's still under warranty.

A CD/DVD drive has two lasers, one for CD's and one for DVD's. I suspect the CD laser has failed or it is simply in need of cleaning. You can get a CD/DVD cleaning disc from a computer store.

There will be generic drivers installed from your XP disc try this method to reinstall them.

Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click System and Maintenance, and then click System,
On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
In Device Manager, expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the CD and DVD devices, and then click Uninstall.
When you are prompted to confirm that you want to remove the device, click OK.
Restart the computer.
After the computer restarts, the drivers will be automatically installed.Click to expand...

If that makes no diference the chances are that the drive has failed. There are two lasers in the drive have you tried it with both DVD's and CD's, you might find it works with one and not the other.

Make sure you have the hard drive jumper set for Master and the DVD jumper set for Slave. It is, apparently, much better to have the Hard Drive on the end of the cable.

You should have no problems setting up a SATA DVD drive as long as you install the correct SATA drivers for your motherboard, they will be available from the manufacturers site.

Ok, so here it is. I have a Seagate Barracuda 750GB external HD that hums off and on, but doesn't seem to spin the drive.

I have looked all over for information on this, and found pretty much nothing in the way of humming except one sound clip...

My hard drive was literally tapped by a book from about 6 inches up. It was on the floor, and didn't even tip. However, it was on at the time.

Now, when I plug it in, it gives a literal rhythmic hum. "Hum (pause, pause, pause) Hum etc) and the computer isn't recognizing it.

Can anyone give me a suggestion? If necessary I will record it and upload the sound. Is this fixable by someone other than a clean room tech (so I'm not stuck paying 700 dollars or more)

Hello all,

I need some help please a year or so ago, I burned some personal movies of me and my bf on to a DVD-R DVD disc successfully. Since that time, I have viewed those movies on my VAIO laptop by playing the DVD-R cd on my laptop.

But now all of a sudden, when I try to watch the movies on my laptop by putting the DVD-R cd in my dvd rom drive, it shows nothing is on the cd I don't know what's up, it won't load anything or show anything. Although it does show that most of the space of 4gb is occupied.

Please suggest what I can do, I will be ever so grateful!

First thing would be to try and read this disk with another disk drive on another computer. If that works, then try another DVD in your laptop. If another computer can't read the disk either, it looks like somethings happened to your disk unfortuntately :S and disk data recovery can be tricky, but it's good that it's showing the space on the disk being occupied.

I recently built a computer with my friend and everything has been fine until about 3 or 4 days ago when the CD/DVD drive stopped working properly.
The symptoms are that it will not read any disks regardless of their type i.e. program, video or audio.
However, the drive is definately receiving power and the Sata cable is connected because I have no trouble booting from the Windows 7 OS disk, as a test.

The drive is also not recognised in 'My Computer' and the properties info gives me the following message, 'Impossible to load peripheral driver for this hardware. Driver could be damaged or missing (Code 39)' (translated from the Italian).

For your info the drive model is an LG GH24NS50.

Sounds like to me that you need to uninstall the drivers and then let windows find drivers for it. To do this go to My Computer and right click on the drive and go to properties, the click on the Hardware tab and then click properties at the bottom. A new windows will open and then you click on the Driver tab, the click Uninstall. Then you can restart the computer and windows should find the right drivers for the drive.

More than likely not. Most board that were born it the 65nm process era, will not support the newer 45nm CPU. In many cases, newer boards intended for 45nm CPUs are backwards compatible with the older chips, but I know that doesn't help you.

The E6700 (Pent) is a very new offering. It usually won't even run in boards that accept the E6300 & E6500 "Pentium Dual Core", (the new 45nm CPUs), without a BIOS update.

Here's the CPU support page for your board, and no's the answer;

the board's CPU compatibility doesn't even extend to the E6x20 series of C2D. These were the 1333 FSB models.

I have just recently installed a WC system on my PC and I would like to view my GPU temps. I have two GTX 480s in SLI.

Anyone know of some good reliable software?

A:How can I read GPU temp?

Hii infantry,
This program is excellent for temps, I have found it to match the bios temps very well. I would not depend on it for accurate voltage readings.

most software that comes with the GPU is very good as well Catalyst, for ATI etc. or the specific card brand. Asus Smartdoctor for example.

I have an old (2005) Dell Lattitude 110L
It's been awhile since I messed with it but I believe that the original problem was a virus.
Somewhere along the line someone went into MSCONFIG and checked the safeboot button...... time passes,,,, forgot that it had been set to that and attempted to completely reformat the pc. It got stuck in a seemingly eternal loop,
"windows cannot proceed Setup in safe mode" And would just continue to reboot itself. Yea, 2 years later I reset the RAM. Now I get a black DOS screen with this error code

memory write/read failure at 1F7E000C, read7C917E91 expecting 7E917E91

Beyond that, you might try reseating the RAM modules. That's an old computer, they might have picked up a little corrosion.

If you can find a memory map of the motherboard, it would be interesting to note if that fault is a hardware or RAM address. Don't ask me, I don't speak "hex".

A:Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.

After a while it slowly started performing poorly. At first it couldn't write an audio cd properly and after a while it couldn't read most of the dvds. I tried unistalling drivers and rebooting. System restored the drivers but it didn't work. I ran microsoft fix it center, didn't do the trick either. Are there any suggestions. I 'd appreciate any help.

They will be on the website of the manufacturer... or with help from their tech support site.
Generally the chipset will work... but others can be a frustration.
Chipset upgrades, if needed, are found on the Intel website... It is a struggle to find where.

A:No IPv6 support on new belkin routers

Well time to look at the Cisco Linksys E3000 instead. As that's where I headed for. Why over the Easter Weekend I was helping my brother-in-law setup his free Cisco Linksys 802.1n from Cox Communcations. He and I have Cox both have the same plan. But I didn't see what the fact that his wireless 802.11n downloads was very quick. Even though be both have Power Boost, his E2000 is quicker than Belkin N+. Wow! An on the Gizmo site online there is a short review on E3000 in 802.11n mode and it's quick. There is EnGenius ESR9850 that's suppose to be showing 700mbps on LAN to WAN and WAN to LAN on wired connections where P2P is showing 19,721 max connections instead of the norm 200 max simulations connections. As 802.11n is over 100mbps too.This is 10/100/1000mbps the NPU is all-in-one SOC meaning the wireless chipset is integrated into the chip. NPU speed is 384MHz and the onboard RAM is 32MB. Online this wireless 802.11n router is only $49 to $59 on some sites. Belkin N+ V2 uses this setup, but looks like some other companies have spiked up the firmware or hardware to get max connections speeds.

After two years of owning first Belkin N+ it has served me very well. But like all PCB wireless routers they tend to degrade and start acting up after heavy duty usage like I have place this router though. Plus these newer routers seem to have full speed ahead not like 2008, 2009 where they seem to be half speed. 2010 wireless routers not all but those I've mentions are set to the max instead of mid-way! Gig connection is suppose to be 600-700mbps not 100-200mbps.

Yeap, apparently there was an update for trim support with RAID 0, 1, and 10 (not 5).

Now, this is really interesting news to me, as I want to buy a couple of SSDs for my new build, and put in RAID 0.

Now, this update is apparently only for Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Reading around, I can't figure out of this would include the P55 chipset.

Can anyone answer this?

A:Trim support and RAID - update question

Any Intel I/O controller hub that supports RAID from ICH7R onwards (so from 945P chipset), including the P55 family (which has an integrated Platform Controller Hub).

For any other thread viewers interested:
Driver here
All drives in the array must of course support TRIM

Stats of my machine in my profile.

Last January I put together a new computer. All systems are go with the exception of my floppy drive. Not that this is a catastrophe but, none the less with all other components working, this is annoying that it will not function properly.

All connections have been checked. The floppy drive is found, in device manager. All indications that it's properly installed.

BIOS was checked and the drive is enabled.

There are no functions to the a: drive. Indicating the floppy drive is unable to format or to read.
Multiple floppy disks have been tried.

With it being a new build I'm thinking the floppy drive itself was toast right out of the box.

does anyone have an idea why this is happening?

A:Floppy Drive will not read on new build

While other connectors in your PC are keyed so they cannot be installed incorrectly, the floppy drive data connector can be installed upside down by mistake. If this was done, the activity LED would be on all of the time. If that is not the problem, then the floppy drive is probably bad.

Assembled threads, the part that touched the CPU chip which i heard is for good heat conducting I also clicked in the RAM I then used the diagram that came with my motherboard to connect all the cables I connected both power cables pin and pin to Assembled comp. wont power up. Read threads, tried everything! the motherboard and i connected all the little single or double pin cables from the front pannel in the appropriate spots i did this twice in case i had made a mistake I also connected the CPU fan and the system fan which i also added from old comp I then connected all the remaining cables as well but i doubt they are the ones creating the problem here I plugged in the power cable to the power unit put on the switch in the back from to and i press the power button at the front but nothing comes on no fan no lights nothing Its not my wall socket because it has power and i tried two sockets Its also not the power plug because i also tried of those I then tried connecting my old power supply which was still working to the motherboard instead and connecting the power plug in there to see if maybe the power supply provided in the case was not working but that didnt solve it either Ive done everything i can think of with the limited knowledge i have I also read one of your threads here and tried everything in there including changing the position of the rubber thing on the CMOS just for the heck of it I was kinda hoping i would get this right off the bat but it seems im missing something Can anyone think of why the computer wont start Oh and i was not working on a carpet and i was wearing a anti-static wristband nbsp
