Recommended specs for a word processing notebook?

Q: Recommended specs for a word processing notebook?

I'm looking for a little 10-inch laptop for schoolwork and browsing, not gaming or anything intense like that.
Looking for what recommended minimum specs I should be on the lookout for.

I'm considering this little Samsung 10.1" Netbook featuring Intel Atom N455 Processor (N145)
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product...l-atom-n455-processor-n145-n145/10161401.aspx

My local pc folks are selling it for $400 CAD tax included, including $73 upgrade from 1G ram to 4G.
Good price?

I'd rather buy from a local store than purchase online, if not for reliability of purchase and continued support options.

Preferred Solution: Recommended specs for a word processing notebook?

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.)

A: Recommended specs for a word processing notebook?

What is the ratio between Canada and US when it comes to money? According to that link the system is on sale until 8/11 for $219.00.

The biggest issues for me would be that the Best Buy offer only has a) Windows 7 Starter installed; not even Home Premium, b) no need for 4 gigs if the operating system is only 32-bit because only a 64-bit OS will utilize 4 gigs and more RAM, c) the Intel Atom is slow.

So, IMO, it isn't worth $400 locally as is and again no need for 4 gigs if the OS is 32-bit. Shop around more and search for a Lenovo x120e system.

A:Recommended specs for a word processing notebook?

If you are web browsing and word processing, than the 4 gigs of RAM is unnecessary. 1 gig will just do fine. Here is about what you should be looking for:

A:here r my specs...any recommended upgrades?, cheers!

difficult to do much with dells

check on site putting your service tag in and on http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/?click=true
your ram can go to 2x2gb if say speed of mobo is @800 then ram upgrade is best as yours very slow
check with http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html for specs/speed and if you have a pci slot? or look in case, any graphics card will boost your system, a 7600 gt with 128mb ram can be bought for say10, issue is more with your psu which i am guessing will be @260 to 300 w so thats a first upgrade to 600w minimum so you can then beef up graphics choice
HDD well yours is ok but would get a second hand one as a slave drive 160gb will be about 10

you could go for velociraptors like i have but then you better off getting a new computer as dam expensive
you could probably go for a small pci audio card @10 but check specs are better than what you have

Hello,

Have been using WORD 2007.
No problems.

But, I just downloaded and installed Open Office. But I only want to use it for its Spreadsheet. However, it looks like its word processing component has taken over.

Now, my WORD documents are being opened by Open Office which I do not want.

How can I make WORD the Default word processing program (again) ?

Thanks,
Bob

Hi all,

A very good friend of mine offered me this hard drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145180

It's a Hitachi Travelstar 7k200 2.5" SATA HDD.... It has 16MB cache and a 7200 RPM speed.
My current drive is a WD Caviar SE 8MB cache and 7200RPM speed, so that notebook HDD should be quicker, am I right?

Since its SATA, I'm thinking about buying it and use it as my primary HDD on my desktop computer......

Is this possible to do? Im mostly sure I can use normal SATA data and power cables to connect it to my motherboard, right?

So do you recommend it? (My friend asked me only 20 bucks for it, and yes, the HDD is new )

Thanks =)

Word Processing Help.
I have Windows ME and have made a list of my collection of stamps as a WORD Doc. I now want to amend this list/s with Catalogue numbers, values,etc but find that when I enter new tab positions to enter these extra details these tab positions change without apparent reason. Suggestions on where I can get a short course (or read about) word processing.

 

A:Word Processing with MS Word 2000

My suggest:

Do it in a table instead.

Turn your show hide button on.
It looks like a backward P on your toolbar.
Then, Insert-Table and tell it how many columns you want, and just choose 2 rows for now.

In the first row, type your column headings and bold them. In the second row, put your first item. When you hit tab within a table, it will:

a) take to you the next cell to the right
OR
b) create a brand new row for you if you're already in the last cell of the table

Select JUST the text (not the backward Ps at the end of each of your lines, and not the arrows, which represent tabs) and then click and drag them into the appropriate cells of your table.

To get more rows, click in the last cell of your table and hit tab until you get the number of rows you want to work with for now.

If you've got TONS and TONS of items already tabbed the way you previously described, send me your file, and I'll hook you up with the tables in about 5 minutes. But it would take me an hour to tell you how to do it.

Open Office is really your best bet for spreadsheets.. But for something similar to Word you can use Wordpad which is your All Programs > Accessories. It has many of the same functions as Word.

What I'm wanting to do is fill in the blanks on an application form.
My friend said all I need to do is scan the application form and open it using my word-processor and then somehow line up the mouse/cursor and, in effect, type to fill in the blanks. I have opened the application using Open Office, but I haven't yet been able to figure out how to "type in" the information.

Is it really possible to do this? I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who might have an answer.

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.... Read more

What is the significance of creating and saving Word Processed Documents in Rich Text Format As a writer I have experience in MS Word Word Perfect and Google Docs I find that saving docs in RTF seems to create a much smaller file in MS Word than saving a document in conventional DOC format Furthermore transferring files as downloads from Google Docs to Word seem to work better in RTF format than Doc formats I know that graphics sometimes do not transfer well to RTF formats But other than that what am I getting or missing out if I save something in Word as a RTF document What I have noticed when I worked in Word Perfect the default file formats were generally - kb for simple letters Using DOC extensions when uploading from Google Docs and saved in Word I have Formats? Processing Questions and Word Text Rich About Word an upgrade disk Questions About Word Processing and Rich Text Formats? from Word that same Doc file format that used to be an RTF format expands to let s say kb Is the data that is expanding in Conventional Word doc format really needed if you can get the same results as a RTF file Or in using the Doc extension in Word is this Microsoft s way of just adding crap to a text file that is not needed When I have transferred letters from Google Docs to Word I have seen instances where the Inside Address is double-spaced when I download it as a Word Doc from Google Docs I cannot get the Inside Address of the letter lines to single-space Saving docs from Google Docs to Word as RTF files I may only have to modify one heading such as the heading of a letter from double-spaced to single spaced and the size of the document as an RTF remains small as I like it I guess my question is why wouldn t I want to save as many documents as RTF files from now on over doc files When should I save or keep the conventional Word doc extension Jack nbsp

A:Questions About Word Processing and Rich Text Formats?

As odd as it may seem, .RTF is also a semi-proprietary format (created by MS but released for general use by others) and, while it does make for smaller files, I find it to have major disadvantages in complex formatting. If my document is simple enough for an .rtf, it often is simple enough for a plain text (.txt) file, which is much smaller again.
The new Word format, docx, is a variation of XML, which is simpler in structure and leads (as I understand it) to smaller files also. However, until I get Office 2007, I can't give you any comparative sizes.

As my post says I need the specs of both drives, paticularly the type of termination (active, etc). (I am definately NOT a SCSI savvy person)

Heres my problem I have a proprietary graphics computer that uses standard SCSI hard drives up to about 340mb for saving images. It is compatible with most Quantum LPS/Prodrive and Conner drives, especially the 120mb and 270mb versions.
Anyway I got a large number of IBM WDS3160's due to the lack of the latter and they do not work properly.

With the ibm drives I have problems with line noise and detection.

What is the difference (electronically) between an IBM WDS-3160 and a Conner 30100 drive? Is there any way I can get the IBM drive to function similarly to a Conner 30100?

Please note that I am only using one drive in the system.

Thanx for any help
 

A:Need IBM WDS-3160 specs and Conner cp30100 specs major trouble

Which Intel P4 Processor and what storage options to use?

Hello everyone. I need to spec out a new testing PC for work, so I'm asking for some opinions. The role this thing will play is a VMware test machine. I will be creating VMware images to run application tests, break/fix, troubleshooting, etc. The operating systems on the images will likely be Server 2003 and XP. So I was thinking of 2 gigs memory, but that may be too conservative. The help I really need is with the CPU and storage. I obviously want a multi core/hyperthreaded CPU, but which one? Hot swapapble RAID would be nice, but what level, and do I need a stand-alone RAID controller or can I use the mobo's?

Thanks all, in advance.

The Xeon Line of CPU's usally do very well in a server like setup. Alot of the time you can get the dual CPU motherboards. If you perfer though maybe one of the new Intel Dual Cores will run well, although im not sure, most servers I know of run dual Xeon's.

As for storage, if you have the money, get SCSI contolers and RAID SCSI drives. They are alot quicker.

And 2GB of RAM seems fine.

Bill_Ving Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about wireless networking poor performance and wanted to help. My immediate guess is that you might have mixed-mode networking going on.  This happens when you have two different PCs networking in two different modes -- one using "G", the other using "N".  The wireless router (or access point) can optimize performance for either mode, but not for both.  So, the "G" mode drags down the performance of the "N" mode PC, but even worse, with the router set for mixed modes, it performs more slowly than with either PC connected by itself.Here are some other troubleshooting steps you can try: HP PCs - Troubleshooting Wireless Network and Internet (Windows 8) | HP Customer SupportGood Luck========================================================================I am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.---------------------------------------------------------------Please click "Accept As Solution" on the post that solves your issue to help others find the solution.Please click the Thumbs-Up symbol on the left of the Reply button to say thanks fopr my help.========================================================================

I made a Google notebook to keep the minutes of a meeting my business partners and I held last weekend. I made them all collaborators on the notebook so they could all make any changes or annotations they felt necessary. However, when they go to access this notebook they are prompted for a password.

There is nowhere (at least that I can find) to even choose to password protect the notebook let alone change the password. I'm pretty confused as to what password the notebook could be. The only thing I can think of is that it's asking for the password to my gmail account, which I don't really want to be handing out. Any ideas on this one gang?

A:new notebook Ghosted with old notebook ghost and now problems??

Something you might want to try (it's a pita) is a repair of windows - this may fix some of the slowness issues you're seeing. The install program he's talking about is probably the U3 component of many larger USB pen drives. I think it's on most of Sandisk's newer large drives. A repair of windows might also take care of this. I seriously doubt that putting the wrong image on the machine and then putting another image on could do any damage to the machine itself - the folks here at my job do it all the time.

My own notebook (Asus EEE PC S101), running Windows XP service pack 3) was twice redirected to an unknown website when I wanted to visit the Guardian newspaper website. I was using IE version 8. Then the notebook froze. When this happened, I had to switch it off without using Cleanup, which I have used safely for a long time. When I had switched it on again, I used Firefox to go to the Techsupport Forum. I followed the instructions to download dds.scr and began running it. Then the notebook froze again. It still tells me "Two logs shall be created on your desktop" Now the cursor does not move any more either. I write this from another notebook, but I cannot create a logfile,m as everything is frozen on my own notebook. Help, please,

My wife has a two-year-old Samsung notebook. Recently when she unplugged it the machine cut off, even though the battery said 79% charged (it wouldn't charge any further). I figured that the battery was bad so I bought another one from Amazon.

This one charges to 100% percent and does exactly the same thing. I'm perplexed but think there's something going on with the motherboard that won't let it use battery juice, even if Windows 8.1 says it's 100% charged.

I've tried the hold the power button down for 1 min with the battery out trick to no avail.

Any ideas? I'm stumped and think I might need to get her another notebook.

Thanks, Robert

Well i did a big report on my computer with Word Perfect i couldnt print it so i took to school on my flash drive. IN my first class i edited it on Word 2007 and in the class i could print it they had Word 2003 and i couldnt open my file and now i cant even open it in word perfect. I doubt i can use the laptops for a while anyway i can open this on wordperfect
 

A:Solved: Word Perfect- Word 2003 - word 2007

If you saved the file in the "new" Word 2007 format (with a file extension of .docx) then you will be unable to open it in the other applications.

For Word 2003 you can install a converter, but I know of no XLM converter for WordPerfect.

When using Word 2007 you need to "save as" Word 97-2003 format to retain backwards compatibility.

I have over 75 processing running in Task Manager, and my machine is really slow.  Am I infected?  Is someone else using my computer?  This seems like an awful lot of processes.

A:75 Processing Running

Hope you are sitting down - I just opened my task manger and it shows that I have 94 processes running. I don't think that the 'really slow' is connected to just 74 processes. A infection is always possible - they are a mater of 'when' not 'if'. When you look at the Applications' tab of task manager are there any applications running that you didn't start or want running?
What is your security software, is it current and have you run any scans lately like this evening]?

and i can't install norton systemwork in safe mode..and when i am in normal mode..it wouldn't let me run anything(probably something is taking up all the processing power)...

can someone shine some light on how to resolve this? I can't do system restore cuase he turn it off!!! don't want to reformat the whole hard drive...is there any freeware or shareware virus scanning utility that will allow me to scan booting into the cd-rom drive? Thanks all..btw, he running XP Home...thanks all
 

A:100% CPU processing power

Sounds like spyware. I doubt you'll be able to load anything new while this spyware is loaded. You can try to start in Safe Mode with Networking and load an anti-spyware program. One I use that is good and free is Spybot Search and Destroy. You can get it at http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

If you aren't able to start in safe mode with networking, or install the spybot software, another (albeit slow) method is to boot normally and press CTL-AL-DEL quickly to display Task Manager. Look at the process tab to see what's running. You can post the list here for help on what's not normal. Then you can boot into safe mode an delete the offending software.

Since you are the only one who knows what you want running on your machine. You have to determine this for yourself. At he very top of this page and every page are tabs. Two of which will be quite useful to decipher this table for yourself. click on the 'Startup List' Tab, there is a dialog box. Enter each item in there and it will tell you what that entry is. You decide if you need it or not. If it does not find that entry save it and when you have a few that might not be found. Then go to the 'File Database' Tab. these entries not found in start up, you can then further research here. After you have determined which ones you need and which ones you don't need. Start a new topic in the appropriate OS forum and we can help you from there. But do this only after you have done your research and found out what each item is for yourself.

Advice is always good so I will ask..Currently running a Intel core2 duo e6300 and want to upgrade rather than overclock (a little scary) since my Intel D975XBX2 motherboard will not support some of the newest processors but will go as high as at least the Q6600 (cuz I don't have a grand to throw out there on a QX6800).. Will I see a major improvement with the q6600 or would I be better with a faster dual core like a e6700.. As always Thanks for the responses

A:More processing power

Hi

Probably not really....unless the programs you're using are optimized to make use of all 4 cores, you probably won't see a big difference. Many people don't understand why that is, but here's a little reading material on this. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/page/cpu/all

You will see some improvements on general computing simply because the clock is higher and more cores to work on things, but on the whole it may not be all you think it will be. Reading some of the articles on that Hardware Secrets - CPU page may help and there are comparison charts there as well on all Core 2 Duo and Quad core chips.

My computer is running VERY slow and when I access Internet explorer a window opens saying it is off-line and I must Try Again. I.E. often must restart. Deckards scan results attached below. Thanks for any help you may provide.

A:Slow processing, always must hit try again

Hmmm! I'm puzzled. 20 views of the post but no reply. Is that because the attached test results don't show problems or maybe show too many problems? I am not at all knowledgeble on computer workings, but it does run slower and has daily error messages.

My computer is win 7 and here recently it the circle by the pointer goes off and on periodically i have ran windows security and also malwarbytes and hijack this hijack says for some reason your system denied write access to host file. is this bad also i cant save the log file from hijack this.
 

A:processing problem

Hi and welcome to techguy.

The circle you speak of is nothing to worry about. Its just Windows 7's way of telling you that the task is being performed in much the same way as you would have seen the hour glass symbol in XP.

The system denied write access message is also nothing to worry about, its perfectly normal to get that message running HijackThis and should be ignored.

What happened when you ran MBAM?

If there is any other reason why you think you may be infected, please click the link below and follow the instructions.

Hi everybody, I'm new to this forum. I have a performance issue with my HP Presario C700 Notebook, which runs Windows Vista Home Premium. Lately the system has been processing slow on and off the Internet. Sometimes if I have Firefox open while loading another page, it will freeze and not respond for 5 or more minutes. It occurs somewhat frequently and sometimes I just end up shutting off the power and restarting the computer. I keep it very clean, run a firewall, anti-virus, and install system updates on a regular basis. Do I need more RAM maybe? I'm currently running on 1Gb and I use my laptop for just about everything like online gaming, web development, music, video, images, and Internet. Any suggestions would be great.

A:Processing Issue

I guess my first instinct would to run ccleaner, and clean up the registry as well as the cleaner option for temp files.

Ccleaner can be downloaded here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner

I would also download and perform a quick scan in malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes can be found here: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebyte...-10804572.html

Thats just to get started. Does Internet Explorer do the same thing? How about Safari or Chrome?

I've turned off a lot of crap in the StartUp menu, defragged, let the system manage virtual memory, yet my system is running quite slow. (The largest two supplemental processes running are Spy Sweeper and AVG.) I suspect I need more memory, since it appears to be absolutely wearing out the hard drive when using most programs. Here are the specifics:

IBM Thinkpad R40
XP-SP2 V5.1
BIOS: 1210/1PET53WW(1.21)
Pentium M 1300 MHZ
CPU Speed: 1024
Video Memory: 32 MB
MEMORY: Total-510, Free-32, Used-478, Load-93%
HD: Total-33.9, Free-7.6, Used-26.3

If memory is indeed the issue, I've never upgraded Laptop memory and don't really know where to get it and how difficult it is to install. Thanks in advance for your valued advice!!!

yes, i would add more ram to that but also a spring clean of the comp might help, http://www.kickenhardware.net/forum/showthread.php?t=3835 then a quick checkup at security here.

Hi,

i am trying to help my friend fix his computer...I don't know if his computer is infected by a virus..but the cpu is taking up 100%...however, when i start in safe mode..it normal, it runing aroung 6-12%....

and i can't install norton systemwork in safe mode..and when i am in normal mode..it wouldn't let me run anything(probably something is taking up all the processing power)...

can someone shine some light on how to resolve this? I can't do system restore cuase he turn it off!!! don't want to reformat the whole hard drive...is there any freeware or shareware virus scanning utility that will allow me to scan booting into the cd-rom drive? Thanks all..btw, he running XP Home...thanks all
 

A:100% CPU processing power

Sounds like spyware. I doubt you'll be able to load anything new while this spyware is loaded. You can try to start in Safe Mode with Networking and load an anti-spyware program. One I use that is good and free is Spybot Search and Destroy. You can get it at http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

If you aren't able to start in safe mode with networking, or install the spybot software, another (albeit slow) method is to boot normally and press CTL-AL-DEL quickly to display Task Manager. Look at the process tab to see what's running. You can post the list here for help on what's not normal. Then you can boot into safe mode an delete the offending software.

A:password processing

Hi and welcome to TSF.

You request is not really clear and I'm tempted to close this thread - we do not assist with password cracking/breaking or otherwise trying to get around passwords, which is the impression I get from your post.

If you can explain in more detail what you are trying to do, it would help. Otherwise this thread will be closed.

Sorry, I didn't know where to put this.

I want to create a batch file that performs a sequence, and loops. This is the sequence:

Open mspaint.exe
Open a file from a root folder containing hundreds of folders and thousands of files
Save the file
Close the file

Then loop from there.

Is this possible? What would be the commands?

Have you tried AutoIt or Auto HotKey ? Another option would be to use another graphics processing program that supports batch processing.

Here I am with this super-nifty computer thingy and I can't install a simple $15 webcam...

I have an HP Pavilion Elite m9260f PC with:
Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6700
4096MB system memory
1000GB hard drive
Blu-ray/HD DVD
NVIDIA Geforce 8600 GT
Wireless LAN
Windows Vista Home Premium (64-bit SP1)

The problem seems to be that there are NO inexpensive webcams that operate in a 64-bit environment...? Is that the case? Am I doomed to be faceless on Facebook? Are my poor grandchildren not going to see their doting Grandpa except in person? Woe is me.

Or, is there a fix? Some cute little drivers or something out there that I can install. Or perhaps a tweak that can let me stream a little live video, or capture some live video?

Please help...

1gB of RAM just isn't sufficient for mature Vista systems - I recommend a minimum of 2 gB, with 4 gB being optimum.

If that doesn't speed it up enough for you, I'd suggest backing up your stuff and reinstalling Windows. There's nothing like the smell of a fresh copy of Windows in the morning! :0)
