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.)

Just bought a 980, now all I get is a black screen no matter what GPU I use.
Here are my specs:

I had an EVGA 780TI working great. My 980 arrived so I swapped. All I got was a black screen. After taking the card out and putting it back in a few times nothing changed. Giving up I put my 780ti back in and now that just gives me a black screen too.

Any ideas?

Edit: My mobo gives the code A0 which is normal so I don't think it detected anything was wrong.

A:Just bought a 980, now all I get is a black screen no matter what GPU I use

If your not getting an error code its probably booting up normally. It maybe defaulting to the integrated card for some reason so I would try plugging onto the on board video when booting to see what happens.

If that is the case you will just have to go into the bios and change your default video card to the PCIE.

I've just bought a new WD My passport 2TB 3.0 external hard drive and for nor love or money I can't get it to work.....

As I plugged in the device my computer pick ups " new hardware device added" with the ping sound. Yet when trying to install the drivers It stays stuck on the " Instal wizard will guide you" dialogue box.... it then prevents me to connect to the internet and the the only way I can remove the " Install wizard...." dialogue box is to shut down tha comp by maually holding down the power key.

Anyone help me out on this,,,I'm going to return it if I can't get it sorted.... really not happy with the brand western digital so far.

Also the drive is not visable in "My Computer"

Recently bought a new headset, Gioteck Ex-05 to be exact. Everything looks fine considering the product and all, but when I FIRST plugged it in it automatically did it's routine with installing the headset driver. Afterwards, my speaker icon in my tray got an X.

Solutions that I've tried but ended up failing:

Reinstalling Headset Driver
Restarting my computer
Reinstalling my Realtek Codec
Reinstalling my NVIDIA High Definition Audio Codec
System Restoring my computer
It's literally just the headset when I plug it in, my earphones work perfect. I have yet to use another headset, this is my first one for this computer.

I powered down the machine yesterday (Shut Down) and now this morning the computer will not boot.
When I try to boot the machine the BIOS screen does not appear, the HD light flickers on but then stays off. All other lights on the machine are on as normal. The fan kicks in within 30 seconds and sounds like it's running at maximum revs.
I did a hard reset and reseated the HD and the RAM and replaced the RTC battery without fixing the issue.
I will disassemble the unit and make sure the fan is not clogged, in the meantime does anyone have any thoughts ?

I just customized this pc and bought it and it said that a Power Supply was availible for $100 extra but it didnt make me choose it. Will my PC be ok? What can this cause?

A:Just bought new PC but power supply too low?

It will be fine. You wouldn't be able to purchase an incompatible configuration, as HP wouldn't allow it to leave production unless it was okay.

That said, the PSU is weak, and being OEM probably won't be the best quality out there. You'll have a warranty though, so don't worry while it is covered with one.

Out of curiosity, what is your intended usage for the computer you've purchased?

I have a Hp Pavilion with a 4.2 score, AMD Turion II P560 Dual-Core 2.50GHz, 4gb ram 300 gb storage, and a AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250. I can play games like minecraft well on High performance and HD, 3D graphics but I want to play more games like Battlefield and Black Ops, MW2 MW3 -Beta. I use Game booster but it only seems to end my processes, how can i run my laptop to be faster for gaming without lag?

A:How can I make my HP Pavillion G-series computer run games faster?

go into battery settings and change to high performance, also most the time with laptops specs dont handle like there advertised due to battery and "saving space" issues. On top of that just try doing the normal, clear off empty hdd space, and use a good defrag program like auslogics and optimize to read the data faster. Trust me gaming is hard enough with just BF2 on my dinosaur of a laptop stuck to windowed resolutions of 800x600

it possible to place a ATI Radeon HD 5750 in a HP pavillion slimline?

I want to know because i just bought just cause 2 for pc and i dont have the right Graphics card so im planning to buy the graphics card.

btw im 13 so i cant afford everything.

thanks for your help

UPDATE: the version of the PC is S3330f

A:Is it possible to place an ATI Radeon HD 5750 in a HP Pavillion Slimline?

From the information I could gather 8800GT is 9" long and roughly 4.7" high. Whereas, this XFX HD 5750 is 7.9" by 4.4". So if these measurements are true to your existing system, you should be ok with this card.

I purchsed a Noctua NH-D14 heatsink+fans CPU cooler for my socket 1155 CPU. However, I misplaced its backplate that fits on the back of the motheroard over the stock backplate. Is there any place where can buy a replacement? I don't think third-party backplates have to be specific to particular coolers, I guess all socket 1155 backplates are standard, as long as the bolt holes are aligned with the holes on the motherboard and it fits over the motherboard's backplate. I checked Maplin's website and unfortunately I don't see any CPU backplates listed.

Only one thing stopping me now from poceeding onto connecting all my components and building my computer, is this missing bl**dy backplate.


A:Can CPU backplates be bought separately?

Yes they can be purchased separately. Ebay is your friend.

I have just recently ordered some parts to build my own gaming computer. I purchased this processor: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX

and this motherboard:GIGABYTE GA-M68MT-S2P AM3 NVIDIA GeForce 7025/nForce 630a chipset Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

The FSB on the motherboard says 1000MHz Hyper Transport (2000 MT/s), the FSB of the processor says 4000mhz.

Is this a problem? motherboard says its ready to take on the 6-core AMD processor that i purchased. Is this going to be a problem. If someone could tell me what would happen if i put them together i would greatly appreciate it. im freaking out right now.... think i just wasted money on this mobo.

A:I think I bought the wrong motherbaord for my processor!

According to the Gigabyte site there are two revisions of this board, Rev 1.0 and Rev 3.0. The AMD Phenom II X6 1090T is not on the Supported Cpu list for Rev 1.0 but is supported on Rev 3.0
The following note is on the product page for both revisions:

* If you install AMD AM3 CPU on this motherboard, the system bus speed will downgrade from HT3.0 (5200MT/s) to HT1.0 (2000 MT/s) spec; however, the frequency of AM3 CPU will not be impacted. Please refer "CPU Support List" for more information.Click to expand...

If I'm reading this right it appears that you'll need Rev 3.0 to run the 1090T but it will still degrade from HT 3 to HT 1. Here are the Cpu support lists off the Gigabyte site.

Socket AM3 - NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a - GA-M68MT-S2P (rev. 1.0)

Socket AM3 - NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a - GA-M68MT-S2P (rev. 3.0)

Personally, I would recommend that you return your current board if possible and upgrade to a that natively supports the 1090T.

I have that card in my machine at work, purely for the dual monitor output capacity. You can probably play any game on it, just not at high/ultra graphical settings or at higher resolutions, also it would probably struggle with Anti-aliasing(AA) and higher anisotropic filtering(AF) settings . Suggest sticking to 1280x1024 or lower resolution.

That unit is old enough to have begun some problems with the hard drive... or heat from dust, dirt, fiber...

Clean out thoroughly with canned air and denatured alcohol.

Can you put the drive in an external USB enclosure to see if you can access the data on another computer? If so, look for the SMART test results.

HP has used in that model Hitachi, Samsung, Western Digital, and Seagate... so it would be helpful to know more about the hard drive installed.

Luckily hard drives are very low cost nowadays... so I would look for another at Frys, NewEgg, Directron, CDW, Zipzoomfly, or other supplier and see if you can install windows to it... If you need help, let us know.

But there have been a lot of system board failure reports... due to excess heat.

What is the age of that laptop and components.?

my laptop stopped picking up wireless network, it wont' recognized the wireless assistant, I tried every possible solution online (updating bios, reinstalling the drivers, changed the network card) and still nothing. any suggestions? will buying a usb wireless adapter give me the option to connect to wireless networks?

Thank you


A:HP Pavillion DV 6000 stopped picking up wireless networks

Welcome to the club and I don't say that sarcastically; I feel your pain. This is quite a well known problem with HP's DV 6000 series; a series that had MAJOR failures with their motherboards due to poor cooling. Their 9000 series also had epic fails. One tech guy that I know told me that in their shop the wireless card failing was the beginning sign of motherboard issues.

Its not your wireless card per se though. I speak from personal experience as my daughter's wireless connection died as well. I even replaced the card and it still didn't work. I also did everything you mentioned plus I followed HP's instructions. I even contacted them and the cost to fix was rediculous. They even said it most likely is a motherboard issue after I did everything they instructed to resolve the issue.

So to answer your last question: Yes, a USB wireless adapter will work. It did for my daughter and we hope this system will last us till she graduates this coming May.

I own a Hp Pavillion dv6700 laptop and recently it wouldn't turn on for more than a few seconds. I tried troubleshooting by removing the battery and turning it on just with the powersupply, no difference. Vice versa.

I purchased another charger to see if that would help. Despite trying different combinations with chargers, batter in/out, the computer still only turns on for a few seconds(nothing comes up on the screen) and then turns itself off.

Reading some other forums similiar to this problem has yielded no help.

Another thing - the port that I plug the power supply into it seems like the cord can move around a bit.

I bought a Intel pentium dual core 2.67ghz 805 system, by emachine. Only problem , i have 2 yellow question marks in device manger, something called " PCI DEVICE , and SM bus controller, but i cant find any drivers for whatever they are. I look over at emachine, no such drivers, from, can't find anything.

A:Just bought a dual core, need help

If you're talking about that AMD you have in your system specs, it won't fit, but it sounds like your computer is running, so its probably a different one.

PCI Device doesn't have anything to do with the processor, if you have a PCI device, directly search for drivers for that device...

Hi, recently bought my first computer (used), I have question about what is installed in my pci slots.

I have 3 pci-slots (1 open) on the two that have a card installed, I don't know what those cards are or what they do, although I think one of them is a "lan" controller or something like that.

I use internet via wireless adapter.

I would like to free up those pci-slots, but first I need to know what is in the pci slots and if I need them or not.

Is there a way for the computer to tell me the exact hardware that is installed in my pci slots ?

I tried "system information" via accessories but that didn't tell me.

After I find out what's installed, I need to know what it does and if I should keep it installed, thanks!

A:Just bought a used computer, what is installed in my PCI slots?

Without being able to see it with our own eyes the best we can do is take a guess.

PCI slots can hold many different types of cards including video, ethernet, wireless, and firewire to name a few.

I suggest downloading a nifty little too called SIW (System Information for Windows). It is free and quite safe. Check it out and you should be able to find out all kinds of information about your system.

My HP Pavillion Laptop has stopped booting. I only get the blue powerlights to flash briefly once. I have tried removing the battery, disconnecting the bios battery - all to no avail.

Following hp's troubleshooting guides, this points to a cpu failure - is it worth replacing the CPU (AMD) - or does the whole motherboard need replacing.

A:HP Pavillion DV6000 - Not Booting

There have been huge issues with that series of HP laptops... I suggest you call HP and discuss the problem. HP has recently admitted some of these problems and has accommodated some owners with repairs, even out of warranty repairs.

It is my understanding that it is a motherboard problem, and the CPU is fine... but my info is all second hand... so call HP and be persistent.

I recently had to replace the mother board in my HP Pavillion a620n because of a nearby lightning strike. The replacement was done by a certified technician. Now when I shut the PC down I must turn off the powe strip it is connected to, turn the power stip back on and then press the power button on the top right of the PC case.

Prior to the replacement all I had to do was press the power buitton. I have checked all power settings etc and they are correct.

When I turn the power strip back on the hard drive accesss light flickers, the DVD drive light flashes and the fan start. I then pust the power button and the computer boots.

I just picked up a new PNY Nvidia 9800GT. I'm getting some significant heat issues. When idling the GPU is at about 55C which isn't too bad, but when I game, even for a few minutes, temperatures jump to about 70C. As this is dangerous for the card, I want to try to bring that down a few degrees. Should I use fan, heat sink, gel? I've never done a cooling project before. Also could somebody reccommend me a good 700W PSU?

A:Just bought new GPU, need help with a little cooling

As this is dangerous for the cardClick to expand...

Not particularly.

Also could somebody reccommend me a good 700W PSU?Click to expand...

Because more power will not only help, but cool it too!!!!

Anyway, you will want to get software like EVGA Precision and manually turn down up fanspeeds since default is normally around 25% - 35% fan speed. Again, 70c isn't really dangerous, it is just about borderline.

Its not a mistake if you need the speed. You certainly could have gotten something with a higher performance/dollar ratio, but if you absolutely need the speed then that doesn't matter.

Standby does not work since I installed the latest XP SP3.
When the 1230 goes into standby, the screen goes blank and the keyboard is locked. It will not quickly resume with an active screen regardless of which key is depressed. In order to recover, the power must be turned off, and then back on in order to continue. In effect, standby works like hibernate, even though hibernate is not enabled. Any ideas about the cause of this type of problem?
Does the BIOS have to be updated??

A:HP pavillion zv5000 - bad DC adapter jack

Try Ebay. The problem with laptops is the fact that the metal/plastic connector that is around the power input gets shaved, bent, or broken. Your situation seems to be the shaved. The contacts arent touching fully and is not able to provide the correct ammount of power to the laptop. This could be either INSIDE the jack, or INSIDE the power adapters port. If it is the port, you should be fine going to walmart and picking up a universal power adapter for about 20 dollars. If it is the Laptops port, then you need to go to a radioshack or possibly order it from the manufacturer to re-solder on. Let us know what you can observe.

A:I got a problem with an older plextor dvd rw drive i bought from a third party.

Plextors are better than most, but they still burn out like a light bulb. There are three lasers, and a belt drive, and sometimes a drive wheel.
As for the copyright protection, that is likely due to the burning software you are using, and that feature can usually be changed in the setup.

I just bought a new video card, ATI RADEON and I installed it fine and it works fine on my PC, BUT since the moment i restarted my computer after installing it i have not been able to get any sound, I have searched tons of websites for help on what to do and NOTHING has worked, i even had to do PC recovery at a point. Here are the things I've tried:
- PC Recovery
- Remove New card and plug monitor into old slot. (screen doesnt even turn on)
- Reinstall sound driver

Someone please help me out with it. I dont want to spend any more money and this computer is my baby.

A:Bought new video card, installed and now NO SOUND

I'd say it's likely become disabled in system CMOS

When restarting press the key that says Hit DEL or F2 or whatever! That gets into CMOS (setup)
Once in CMOS, re-enable onboard Sound
Save and exit (usually F10 key)

Restart and confirm you have sound.

A:"recovery drive full." error message Hewlett Packard Pavillion Hp dv2500

Actually what concerns me more is, I wonder if you have deleted files in your recovery partition.
It's usually hidden from inside Windows, so I expect no. But by chance did you receive a Windows CD or just a recovery partition (because the recovery files may now be gone)

As for the location, think of it this way, it will show all areas that you can backup to. I think even the floppy drive (if you have one) this is to give you the full choice, instead of putting restrictions on your own computer (which most don't like)

That's why.

Hi let me a drive question Just hard bought have and new a give you some background so you ll be able to figure Just bought a new hard drive and have a question out what im talking about For the past few years ive had a computer with internal hard drives Master GB Slave GB the slave was from my old computer Recently that slave drive died on me luckily i was able to save all the information to the master drive before it completely died Last week i purchased a brand new GB drive to replace the Slave and installation went great Now here comes my question In the past whenever i needed to do a total system restore the computer would clean the C Drive Master to store bought status while not touching the D Drive Slave which was great because i could save all the info i needed Now that i have a new Hard Drive in place of the old Slave will i be able to do a system restore and have the info i need kept safe intact on my new hard drive One note The new slave drive is named M instead of D Just though id throw that out there incase it made a difference though i think it doesn t Reason i ask is because i didn t install the old slave so i don t know if there is something i need to do to make sure what i want to happen happens Also i want to make sure that after the restore my computer won t ask me to format the slave drive That also would be bad news for my files Thanks for the help nbsp

A:Just bought a new hard drive and have a question

This sort of depends on what restore program you are using. Most likely it will still restore only your primary hard drive.

I am putting together my own pc, I have never done it before but I thought I would have a go. Everything went fine apart from when I tried to use my hard drive from my old pc. I was told by a friend that my old hard drive is formatted with my old motherboard and I needed to buy a new hard drive and Windows XP software or the only way I could use my old hard drive is to format it again and lose everything on it. Is this true? If so, how do I format a new hard drive? I was told that when booting XP from CD with a new hard drive, it gives you the option of formatting the hard drive before loading the software from the disc

A:Bought a new pc and am having trouble

That is true apart from you don't need a new hard drive, your windows cd will be able to re-format or overwrite your old install. A format is a much better idea just in case you have any malware on the drive.

This doesn't sound right... All you should need is the Nvidia Chipset driver for the hard drive controller. You might need other XP drivers like video, modem, network and such...

A:DVD drive will not play STORE bought dvds.

If your year of warranty is not up, talk to Dell tech support. They have had such a high failure rate that you might talk them into a new one. What you describe is not typical... for play... only if you are trying to copy.
However, you might go to the Device Manager within Hardware within System in the control panel. Remove or disable the driver. Then download and install the latest driver.
Also a LOT of drivers, the BIOS, and others of the 56 available downloads have been upgraded since you bought that laptop. If you have not upgraded them all (any with a date more recent than the date the computer was built (see your invoice) then you need to do that.

But if you are out of warranty by just a few days, call Dell anyway.

You read all the "positive" comments. They are budget machines! I have a T3985. It came with an Intel MB and I put in a new PSU and a CPU cooler. Picked it up used for a couple of bucks. It has been running fine for me.

You are taking your chances. Sometimes they run good for a long time, but many seem to develop problems. I would say, take it back and get an HP, DELL or even an Acer.

i just bought a 200Gb hitachi HDD and formatted it. but it shows only 186Gb of memory now. why's that? anyone know how that might happen? did i do something wrong when formatting it? please help!


A:lost space on newly bought 200Gb hitachi

That is normal. Because the drive isn't really 200 Gigs.
200 gigabytes = 214 748 364 800 Bytes

If you look at the label or box, it will say that it considers GB to be 1 000 000 000 Bytes
200 000 000 000 Bytes = 186.26 GB

It is because 1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes. But in decimal kilo means 1000. HD Manufacturers use the decimal form to make drives sound bigger than they are.

I just bought this Mobo-
Asus A8V-E SE Socket 939 PCI-E,SATA-RAID NEW

Now I am lokking at 3400+ CPUs and I came across this-
NEW*AMD Athlon 64 3400+2.Ghz Newcastle 939 Processor.

this is my first AMD machine and my first one that I will build myself.

I just am confused about the 'Newcastle' name.
I suppose its a brand name like Prescott is to Pentiums.
So any input or adice on these two items would be great!

A:I bought a new Mobo now the cpu Q's are here!

You are right with Newcastle being just a name like Prescott is for the Pentiums. All you really need to be concerned about is the 939 number anything else (like AM2 or 754) won't fit.

Found this on Wikipedia

The Socket 939 3400+ (both Newcastle and Venice versions) is an OEM-only chip and was never directly available from AMD. It shares all Socket 939 3500+ characteristics with the exception of the 800 MHz HyperTransport Link.Click to expand...

You may want to get a retail processor rather than OEM unless you already have your heatsink and fan. Also I'd stay away from Newcastle 939s if for no other reason, just because they are the oldest technology of the 939s and use more Watts.

You can check out a list and socket numbers here:

Well today I ran out to staples to go on a shopping spree... well I only bought a 200GB HDD that was on sale for $70 and then a $20 rebate. Well I get home to find out that there is no room to put this new HDD. Now when I say no room I don't mean there isn't a slot in my computer for it (because there is) but there isn't a place to plug it in with the ATA cable.

I really want this HDD installed for extra space (Anime, movies, games, etc.) but I don't know a way to do so without taking out the other HDD. I'm also not too literate on this side of computers so any help is appreciated. If I'm not making any sense please tell me.

Nope it's not bad at all. Regarding gaming however, the Celeron is zilch for it. A Pentium D wouldn't be too expensive. Try this.
