Upgrading pre-built PC

Q: Upgrading pre-built PC

I was given my prebuild gaming PC (gateway FX6840) as a gift a couple years ago and, while it runs fine, there seems like there is room for improvement. I was wondering what I should upgrade to increase performance, and I am pretty new to the PC upgrading world.
current set up:
ATI radeon HD 5700 series
8 GB DDR3
1TB HDD
intel core i7 860 2.80GHz

Preferred Solution: Upgrading pre-built PC

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:upgrading built in wifi

With the internal card disabled and the other card properly installed, let's see this.
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

I'd also like to see this.

Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, paste a screen shot of the Network screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Can anyone tell me why this system seems to run worse when upgraded to XP. Its a PIII 700 mhz that has the sticker on the front boasting 'designed for Windows ME'. I know that ME sucks, and i figure that the system designed for it probably isn't that good either, wondering if anyone knows the differences in the specs that differentiate 'built for WinXP' and 'built for WinMe'

A:Upgrading a Built for Windows ME machine

There are a lot of hardware differences between a computer that was Built for ME and built for XP. these are nothing more than new technologies. I imagine that the problems you are running into are memory related. While XP may "run" with less memory than required, it may not function appropriately.

The minimum required I *think* is 256 mb of RAM... I suggest nothing less than 512mb to run XP smoothly.

Post your systems specs and we will be able to tell you if you are even close to running XP.

Hi all

Looking for some information. I'm replacing 3 pc's in the business I work for. We use custom software and have to remain on Windows xp to avoid issues with the database hooking correctly. We have used mostly Dell pc's to run our software, and from time to time need to reinstall Windows as needed. With the Dell systems, I wipe the partition and insert a disk, reinstall, add drivers plus our software, then I'm done. I'm considering building 3 new pc's maybe around the i5 level for workstations. I was curious if there was a way to build in the Windows XP serial number like Dell and other vendors do. Is this a specific type of main board ? A function in the bios ? I would love to be able to duplicate this, if it's possible.

Thank you

A:Windows install / vendor built vs homebrew / built in serial

You can not use the same serial number for a different computer. Its illegal. You'll need to buy a copy of Windows XP for each computer or buy a Set copy that will work on 3 different computers.

Hi I really hope that someone can help here because I am stuck a bit Some days ago I broke a headphone plug and a part of it stayed in the headphone jack Built-in Built-in vs speakers mic I tried to get it out with various methods that were suggested in various forums Did not succeed In fact the part that has broken off is now somewhere in the computer like Built-in speakers vs Built-in mic it went through the jack totally but strangely the headphone jack still works when another headphone set is plugged in The thing now is that my computer thinks that the headphones are always plugged in Hence I did not get any sound from the built-in speakers Yesterday I found a solution to this in some forum that I should go into registry editor find 'ForceDisableJD' and modify its value from to some other forum said to type 'FF' I don't know the difference but both lead to the same outcome It worked and now I get sound again However today a new problem showed up When that value is set to FF or my built-in microphone stops working When it is changed back to it works as it should but this makes the speakers not to work again As this requires a reboot every time it is not very convenient to reboot the PC every time I want to use headphones or the microphone To me there seems to be some kind of problem with the Atapi Internal Atapi Jack when jack detection is disabled with that as this is the jack that is used by the mic when the registry value mentioned above is set to But maybe I'm totally wrong and the reason for the mic not working is something else So here comes the question Is there any way to have that jack enabled while jack detection is disabled for the rest Like in the registry or in some other way I am not a huge computer specialist thus I don't know what to do and actually what to google for Like maybe someone has faced something like this Or maybe there is a way to only disable that headphone jack that is causing the problem although it still works Maybe there is some software that enables switching this without rebooting Well you're most probably smarter than I am I have went over hundreds of pages like really but none of them combine all these issues I'm running Windows Ultimate bit on an Asus X Sr laptop The audio driver is Realtek R As I said I hope someone can help

A:Built-in speakers vs Built-in mic

The problem is a mechanical one in the jack. Replacing (or if you are lucky reforming the contacts) the jack is what is needed to permanently fix the problem. Trying to circumvent the hardware issue can get confusing as you have found out and still not everything works or works correctly. It's going to cost you but check with some of the PC shops to see if they can repair it.

Hi,

I bought Windows 7 having come from Vista. However, there is a BIOS update for my system. The new BIOS update states: The BIOS updates the fan control algorithm of the system, and turns the fan on at low volume while your notebook PC is operational. If you are currently experiencing any symptoms on your notebook PC, please contact HP for support. It is located here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...340180&lang=en

I'd love to flash it but not sure if it will ruin my computer as it's more than likely not designed for flash when Windows 7 is on it or do you's know any better?

I also have 2 blue vertical lines going do the right hand side of the screen. I've seen loads of problems but no solutions. Has any fixed this HP problem?

Cheers folks!

A:Upgrading BIOS after Upgrading from Vista to 7

The BIOS is the stuff that happens BEFORE Windows starts to load.
Do you have issues with overheating or with the fan? If so, the BIOS update is for you.
Also, BIOS flashes are dangerous - and you can turn your computer into a paperweight by doing it incorrectly. In short, if it ain't broke - don't fix it!

The type of lines that you describe on your screen are usually caused by hardware issues. Send it in for repair if the system is under warranty. If not, then get an estimate from a local computer store - it may be cheaper to live with it.

Here is a question for you super Win 7 specialist:

The following appears below the EULA of a Win 7 I downloaded earlier today:

1. Found at the bottom of EULA (Sources Folder) default
EULAID:Win7_RM.0_ULT_RTL_en-us

2. Found at the bottom of EULA (Sources Folder) eval
EULAID:Win7_RC.1_Ult_NRL.EVL_en-US

3. Found at the bottom of EULA (Sources Folder) OEM
EULAID:Win7_RM.0_ULT_OEM_en-us

No I am not saying what download this is at the present though most of you should be able to figure that out. I am asking this only because I found it interesting that some say that the RTM has yet to be released, and some are saying that it has been and they are running it as I type.

So, if someone out there with more smarts than I (shouldn't be to hard) "Please sign in."

A:MAC OS on a Self Built PC?

I am not sure about an AMD cpu but you can do it on an Intel cpu. There are illegal hacks out there to do it though. This is borderline against the forums rules.

It can be done but alot of it is dependent on the hardware you have. Many people have had mixed results using the hack. I wouldn't suggest you try this. Just buy a cheap Mac mini or something.

well it's been done, the eVGA 7800GTX graphix card, the 4GB ddr2 memory, the Asus P5ND2-SLI Mobo, the Pentium-D 840, the Audigy4 sound card, the 500W x-connect PSU and when it starts up either the just the chassis fan starts and nothing more or the the comp starts up and then totally dies. The 4-pin 12V mobo connection is unplugged and then plugged in, respectively for each scenario. What the heck do you guys think is wrong? When I first had it working, it had a biostar 945 series mobo and it worked ok, then one night in a drunken rage, I ripped out a 120gb hard drive that wasn't even attached (to put into another comp.) but needless to say I haven't gotten any results from just replacing the mobo. Maybe it's the PSU wires but I want to see other people think before buying something else.

Hello everyone, I have a Dell Inspiron 1521 computer with Vista on it. I tried to go on skype yesterday but for some reason, my mic isn't working.

I went and checked the sound and made sure it wasn't on mute or anything, and it's completely fine.

I looked around on the internet and the only information I could find was that people had this problem after they reinstalled their computer. A couple months ago I reinstalled my computer, and before I did I could use the mic.

A:Need help with home built PC

Pick one operating system and get to know it thoroughly. You can branch out to others later. There is a great deal more good information on a Windows XP machine than any other, which enables you to do more research on what to do next.
You may not be aware that you need drivers to go with what the operating system can do. You will need the chipset, which is VIA, which you can download and install from ASUS if you have not already done so.
It is time to get a good used book on computers and on the opearting system.
There is simply way too much to know to get help on it from this site or any other. A used copy of Windows for Dummies, and Windows XP Inside Out might be a good place to start.
Until you master a few fundamentals of an operating system, chipset, drivers, audio and video graphics, you are apt to become frustrated.

The equipment and components you described is enough to get you going.
Good luck.
Let us know where you are in this process and someone here will try to help

I just built a brand new system, got everything set up and powered it up. The lights turn on, the fans spin and everything sounds right, but the monitor doesn't seem to be able to pick anything up.

Please offer any help you can, I'm counting on you TechSpot
 

A:Just built a new computer.

I am assuming you are not passing the POST test? Are you getting any beeps?

You'll need to go back to the basics to help troubleshoot.

Take out your motherboard, and set it on a box beside your case.

Intall ONLY the cpu/heatsink, one stick of ram and the 2 power connections from your PSU to the motherboard. (both the 24 pin and the ATX12).

Connect your case's speaker wire to the motherboard as well.

Use a screwdriver to "short" the two pins usually connected to the case's power on switch.

Connect your monitor to the onboard graphics.

Are you able to post?

Hey my name is Preston and I was wondering what OEM means for windows 7 it's 90$ on amazon something I can actually afford.

But I've heard stories it locks too all my parts on my PC so one of me breaks say the motherboard I have to buy another windows 7 is this true?

I really need a OS for my PC and I need help thanks

A:Built New PC need OS OEM vs Retail W7?

The OEM versions of Windows 7, designed for small builder use, are locked to the hardware they're installed on; not a great problem if you have bought quality components and you're aiming to keep the build for several years.

If you do have a motherboard failure on an OEM licensed build, a like-for-like replacement is not usually a problem; contacting Microsoft would normally result in them accommodating the change, if you carefully explain the situation.

For someone who frequently changes/upgrades components, the Retail version would be the one to buy.

Windows 8 has changed this, there are no Retail versions of W8; the W8 OEM versions are allowed to be transferred (moved) to different hardware, once the version on the older machine is wiped.

A:Help with built-in Mic and line-in Mic

Normally, when a separate mic is plugged in, it will disable the internal mic. You should have "Stereo Mix" set as the default Recording Device, no a mic or whatever. With Stereo Mix set, whatever is plugged in should work.

Go to the Sound Panel, Recording Section. If Stereo Mix (May be labeled System Mixer) is shown, enable it and make it the default Recording Device. If it is not shown, RIGHT click in an empty area in that panel and then check to show Disabled and Disconnected devices. Stereo Mix should now show and you can then enable it and make it the default recording device.

A:having new computer built - help

What is your budget?

For your Ram, you will want at least 1GB. I'm not sure what Vista Aero's req's are, but regular Vista reccomends 2GB.

HDD is fine (seagate is a good brand)

Motherboard: not sure about this one. Can't tell with out more info if it can handle a future upgrade to an Intel Conroe processor (currently owns for speed!).

CPU: The 805 is certainly a nice cpu, and at $100 its fairly cheap. But the new Conroe E6300 is close to twice as fast for $183. Againit comes down to your budget.

Vid card: Depends on what games you want to play. Currently the radeon 9600 would be "lowest" card you would wnat to use to play todays games at low res. A Nvidia 6600 or above would be better.

If you want to do a little 'window shopping', check out www.newegg.com for competitive prices.

Don't skimp on the power supply! You can get a decent one from FPS for around $40 at newegg.

Hi,

I have had intermittent BSODs since I built this PC. Initially there was a RAM problem (failed memtest) but that seems to be fixed now. I also reinstalled the OS (Windows 8.1 Pro) and it seemed to help for a day now they are starting again.

It seems to happen more when video is involved. I also have noticed just now that chrome tabs are crashing for no real reason, in fact that happened when uploading attachments to this and I had to retype everything.

Hopefully someone can help. Let me know if I am missing any vital info. Thanks

Did the laptop come with any CDs? Sounds like the webcam needs to be reinstalled. Or the drivers anyway. Does the webcam show up in Device Manager?

A:Just built new PC, XP won't boot.

Hi solareus and welcome to TSF !

When changing the motherboard one should always reinstall from scratch to ensure a stable system. The motherboard is the highway that the system uses to access all the devices. If you keep the same installation (same system drive) and change the motherboard and other devices (video card) the system tries to access devices that are not there using roads that are not there either, causing your crashes.

Your best bet is to backup your data on another computer and reinstall from scratch. To backup your data hook the hard drive as a slave drive in another desktop computer or use an external USB enclosure (15$ on newegg).

If you really want to avoid a compete reinstallation then you can try a repair installation, but there will still be remnants of your older devices in the system and in the end it can cause problems.

Open the computer case and remove the new devices that are not needed for the system to start. Only keep one CD-rom drive and the system drive. Remove network cards, sound cards, ... and use the onboard video if available.

Repeatedly press F8 at startup and select safe mode in the menu that will appear. If you can get within Windows in safe mode then log as administrator (leave the password blank if none was set) and uninstall all the chipset, video, network, sound, ... drivers and their bundled programs in add/remove programs. Also go to the device manager (start => run => devmgmt.msc) and right-click => uninstall the devices that are not there anymore.

Once the above is done or if you couldn't boot into safe mode at all the next step is to perform a repair installation.

If you had XP Home SP2 installed on the computer you'll need an XP Home SP2 CD, if SP3 you'll need an XP SP3 CD. If your install CD doesn't have the same service pack as the one that's installed on your computer then google for guides on how to slipstream SP2 or SP3 on your XP CD. You can also use this manual method for SP3. You can use another computer to create the slipstreamed XP CD.

If you had installed internet explorer 7 you'll need to uninstall it before proceeding with the repair installation of XP SP2 or internet explorer will be broken : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917964. If you can't uninstall it from safe mode you'll need to uninstall it from the recovery console : enter the BIOS at startup to change the boot order priority to CD-rom first, press enter to boot from the XP CD, press 'R' at the first install screen to access the recovery console, select your windows installation and enter your admin password if needed (press enter if left blank) and from the c:\windows\ prompt type
CD ie7\spuninst
batch Spuninst.txt

Once you're ready to start the repair installation (i.e. you've backed up your data to stay on the safe side, you have an XP CD with the same version of Windows and same service pack as the one installed on the computer and you've removed IE7 if it was installed) enter the BIOS at startup to change the boot order priority to CD-rom first. Press enter to boot from the XP CD. Press enter to "setup Windows now" at the first install screen. Accept the licence agreement. Select your current Windows installation and press 'R' to "repair the selected installation". If you still get BSOD's you'll need to reinstall from scratch.

I am scared to death to do this.... I have built my own systems for 10 years now, BUT I NEVER OVERCLOCKED..... What should I do???? thanks
 

A:HI...I just built my new computer and

It is a feature of soltek mb. It is called redstorm overclocking. Just do not use it if you do not want to overclock. What the utility does is start increasing the fsb until it detects some corruption, then it decreases it slightly.

BTW good choice in mb. Do you have the 939 pin or 754 pin? There is a bios update for the 939 that addresses memory speed when using dual channel.

So my dad and I built my gaming PC and at the end it posted successfully all fans were spinning lights were on and everything worked but then I hooked it up to the monitor and nothing the monitor is just sleeping it is a dell monitor and it has a orange light instead of a green one PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP I REALLY NEED HELP
 

A:I Built my PC and I have a big problem

This is a bit confusing. You reported that the lights were on, the fans were spinning and everything was working but then you say that when you hooked up the monitor it was not. When "everything" was working, did that not include the monitor.

The lights are on and the fans are spinning simply means that the power is on.

Does your machine give a beep when it has completed the POST? New graphics card or are you using the integrated video.

Don't panic. These moments occur with all of us who attempt to "build our own".

A:install win 7 on new built pc

Windows 7 comes on a DVD and you need to install it from that. RAID is configured in the BIOS settings before you install an Operating System.

Take care to assemble using only parts which have Windows 7 drivers available - check that before you buy them.

Good luck - there's a tremendous feeling of success after you've built your first computer and it fires up for the first time.

Hi -Right click on a blank section of the screen (not a program). At the bottom should be a line that says "Personalize".Left click on this and there are options for screen savers and backgrounds there. I think that is where you also select to add your own background.There is a link at the right that says "Get more themes on line".

The best thing you could do for us (whomever answers or tries to help) is to list the following in English:

Motherboard - brand name and model
Video Card - brand name and model
Power Supply - Watts and Brand Name
Drives - type, kind of drive

That will make it much easier than trying to intepret something that is not clear at this time.

Nice build...now to your question at hand. Professionally, yes when you have a new build always do a clean install, this will eliminate any bugs preexisting and those that might arise later do to software/hardware compatibility/conflict issues...if any. Personally, it's your build, run it like it is for awhile and test drive it for a month and see how she does.....you can always do a clean install later.

This page was built with Front Page. I was wondering how they did the link buttons at the end of the page. The uniformity of the buttons along with the script for the roll over. Did they do that with Front Page also? When I look at the work in notepad it looks very hard......page

Do you get a POST (Power on self test) beep on startup? You should have only one.
It might not be a graphics card problem!

Can you be more descriptive of the problems you are having with your computer?

I know this question has been answered a million times already but none of them have resolved my issue.

I have a hp pavilion dv9000 series and a few weeks back any program that could use the mic would freeze my system. I updated the drivers and everything and now the system doesn't freeze but the mic still doesn't work.

Is there anything else I can do?

A:built-in mic not working

Make a full anti virus scan
Download and make a full scan with Malwarebytes. If negative
I would go back one week before the freezing problem with System Restore.

How can we tell if an app is a UWP? Now that the store no longer says "Built for Windows 10," how can we tell if it's a universal app or not?

A:Built for Windows 10

Some apps do mention it in the description.
Also, if you have the anniversary update installed on your phone, you can scroll down on the app page and you'll be able to see what platforms it is available for. For example, if you was to open Twitter, you will see the options to sort reviews by PC or Mobile, and that tells you that it is available on both.

So I built a new computer today, turns out the sudden restarts i had with my other one were due to a faulty processor, so now the new one i built is w/o a decent processor (im using a old celeron right now) anyone ever heard of this? I thought if it went bad it went bad and just didnt work....

when I turn it on it starts fine but then gets lighter and lighter into dull colours.

it goes back to normal if I put my arm over my head.

how do I solve this?
 

A:built in webcams

Built into what? A laptop? All-in-one? Tablet or phone? TV?

Honestly you will need to provide a lot more info. The exact make and model of whatever device you are using it with, the operating system installed, when it started to happen, and when the device was bought? Is it still under warranty?
