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.)

I am looking to upgrade my monitor for playing games like Crysis or COD- I currently have this;

....but the colours look a bit flat compared to my 42" LCD TV and the response rate isn't great.

I am ideally looking for a widescreen 20" monitor for under £150. What brands should I look out for, which ones should I avoid?

Any suggestions/recommendations welcome!!

I am getting ready to get a new cpu for my computer and I would like a recommendation for a decent cheap gaming cpu I could get around $150. Right now I'm looking at this one - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX
I'm not looking for anything outstanding though as long as its better than my current
AMD Athlon II X2 215 processor.

A:Can you recommend a good cpu for gaming?

That's the same cpu I have in my system.....runs every thing well GTA 4, Mafia 2, and Flatout......

Some of the chips are very good over-clockers....but not mine

You haven't filled out your system spec's so I can't tell if you have a AM3+ board....

I've been searching for headsets lately because once the night time rolls around I have to shut my surround sound off because my family is sleeping. I've been looking at the astro a30's but after reading reviews I hear that the bass in them is not too good. I preferably like good bass. And the thing I like about them is that the mic is detachable and the headphones can be used with mp3 player.

Anyone have a headset they particularly like or heard good thing about? Let me know!

I will primarily be playing BF3, but would like to use with mp3 player as well (will still look into headsets that arent meant for this)

Now that I have finally compiled my final list of components for my new gaming system I want someone to recommend me a nice looking gaming case. The case should be able to hold an 8800GTX.

I've been looking everywhere for a suitable case and I've had my eye on the sexy NZXT Trinity but it doesn't seem to be sold anywhere?! Anyone know a UK retailer that still sells this case? If not can anyone find me a cool suitable looking sexy and black gaming case with a side transparent window?

I would really appreciate. And I am extremely grateful for the help you guys gave my in my last thread

what kind of keyboard do u guys use?? is this Logitech MK700 Wireless Desktop Keyboard & Laser Mouse nice for gaming?? i am not too content with my last set and looking for a new one now. so happend to find this one. looks nice. kinda love it. but i am not sure it is that good. what about its performance?? is it a nice buy?

A:recommend me a decent gaming keyboard??

My personal opinion is always wired rather than wireless keyboards and mice for gaming.

I have always been a fan of Logitech mice and am currently using a G500 which is a nice bit of kit in my opinion. keyboards I have never been that bothered about, I am using a pretty bog standard one at the moment and it does the job as far as I am concerned.

I've been having intermittent problems with my mouse, here's the topic.
Buying a new one is a must, to hunt down the source of the problem more easily.
So which mouse do you guys/gals use & which would you recommend for gaming/general use ?

A:Recommend a good gaming mouse

Razer, and Logitech are my first two choices for gaming mice, from there it is all about how much money you want to spend. Personally I like mice that give you a switch that toggles the dpi on the fly. That way you can have it super sensitive for gaming and not so sensitive for non-gaming uses.

A:Please Recommend a Laptop Video Card for Gaming

Let me start off with I'm not sure if you're looking to buy a laptop or upgrade the graphics card. If you're wanting a laptop then I may be able to help.

I work at Best Buy so I don't usually search around the internet too much for laptops, but for the best gaming laptop I would recommend almost any of the ASUS products.

If you can stand to wait I would wait until they have any of these three on sale (If it's $200 off original price that's the cheapest you'll get it):
Asus - Laptop with Intel? Centrino? Processor Technology - Black/Coppery Gold - X83Vb-X1

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a good LCD monitor. The most important thing to me is that it should have the least effects on eyes, the god damn CRT really strains my eyes after using the pc for a few hours !

Also, surfing the net is more important to me than playing video games ( incase it makes any difference in choosing the right monitor for me ! )

My budget = maximum I can pay is 250 US $

So, which monitor do you guys recommend ?

Thanks in advance.

A:please recommend me an LCD monitor

Well, there's no certainty that the eyestrain is due to the CRT, just to get that out of the way right up front.

When looking for a particular item, I typically visit these sites regularly, usually at least once a day. A good deal on a brand name will come along shortly.

I need a new monitor to go with my Radeon 5970. My current one, a Phililps 170S 17" has served me well, but it's too old for modern standards.

Here is what I want from my new monitor.

-As wide as possible
-Full HD support
-3D compatible, as far as I know that requires like 120Hz refresh rate
-As high contrast ratio as possible
-2ms response times
-Should be able to plug digital or HDTV cable into it
-LED or something similar
-Optional other extras like speakers and webcam and touch-screen are always welcome but I can live without them.
I am not sure if such a thing even exists. I have tried looking on eBay and I have seen all these features in different monitors but never in one place.

problem is i know lcd's display best at their native resolution and for most things ill be running at at 1680x1050 , however with my current rig (and my upgrade being pushed back due to needing a new monitor) ill struggle to game at this res

so will it look/perform ok at 1280x1024 ingame? until i upgrade?

Hi archie

I use the Samsung 226BW which is a 1680x1050 monitor. Any game i play that my graphics card cant handle at 1680x1050 i lower the res of that game to 1280x800 in the games menu.

As 1280 is pretty close to 75% of 1680 and 800 is pretty close to 75% of 1050 its the settings i use for games like Crysis Warhead etc. You'll see when you get the monitor what is best but a setting of 1280x1024 will give you 76% and 97% of your native resulution and will make the image appear distorted

24 inch 1920x1080 is now the default monitor. No point going smaller. They cost <$200.

Other options include:
- Taking a risk and spending ~$300 on a 2560x1440 27 incher from eBay. Techspot has it on Xmas Shopping List.
- Spending a little more and getting either a 27inch 1080p monitor, or a productivity-oriented 1920x1200 monitor.
- Check out Dell website for more sizes and resolutions. You're gonna be paying for it, though.

Hi folks, my monitor blew up and I was looking at LCD monitors. I can't afford most of them, but was wondering about a couple that were in my price range. Is 21ms acceptable response time for gaming? This is the one I was checking out:

A:Need help shopping for new monitor for gaming.

I'll start by trying to give a crash course in LCD.
Contrast ratio-- level of "blackness" and brightness ( sorta ). The higher the number the blacker the black and brighter. If you look on an LCD you'll notice that it's not quite black black if the contrast ratio is something like 350:1 or bright for that matter. So the higher the contrast ratio the better.
Pitch-- distance between pixels displayed. The lower the number the crisper the image.
Response time-- time that the LCD needs to " paint" the screen ( again sorta). Anything above 18 ms , you'll cry when playing ( it introduce ghosting or frame skipping).
Now if you're a true gamer ( DOOM III, etc..etc.. ) NO LCD CAN COMPETE with the good 'ol CRT. Since it seems you got cash i would suggest something like a Mitsubishi 22" Diamond Pro ( basically anything with a Trinitron tube). True, it's heavy and bulky but the pic... mmm.. like butha.. . Too bad Sony got out of the CRT production since they used to be the best.

Hi there.

I have a 24 inch monitor and I am looking into getting another screen for a dual set up. My brother let me borrow his 24 inch HDTV/monitor and the picture looks great. I was thinking about getting the same one but before I do I wanted to make sure I am not overlooking things.

Are there any concerns about using a HDTV rather than a monitor? Are their things to be worried about a year down the road?


A:Monitor vs HDTV for gaming

Technically no, just open some things with small text to see how clear the picture is, most TVs are not made with sufficient resolution to handle small stuff. Keep in mind that most games want to run on the primary display so you'll probably have to make TV primary and if it's not good enough for small text than you may have problem or would have to move applications to your now secondary display.

I was thinking about buying a LCD monitor but I heard that they arent as great for gaming as CRTs because of refresh rates and clearness. Still my bulky CRT needs to go so i was just wondering wat kind of refresh rates i want and contrast ratio and so on. I use my comp for gaming with games such as CS:S, BF2, AOEIII, and Oblivion as well as for casual use such as web browsing typing up word documents ect. Please help.

A:What specs for gaming monitor?

How much can you spend?
Remember the basic rule: You get what you pay for

There are some great LCD´s on the market, but if you want very good image quality, and no ghosting, you have to pay for that. Also, to get the best image quality, you should use the LCD at its native resolution. Of course you can use it at other resolutions, but the image quality won´t be the best.
Unfortunately, if you want a big monitor (17" or 19") and want to use the native resolution, you need a powerful computer to run the games smoothly at those high resolutions.

If you, like me, don´t have a cutting edge machine, look for a 15" LCD. Its native resolution its 1024x768. That should tax too much your machine.

I mostly play fps but will play other types of games some, would like play on high settings too

which of these would be better for gaming? Asus 239hp vs dell u2412m? the asus is 180 on amazon and the dell is 250

A:Gaming PC monitor, IPS or 120hz?

120HZ: Amazing in FPS games. Only 'works' if you give it more than 60fps from your GPU, which with a GTX670 you'll be pushing it in the latest games..

Games look really fluid on 120Hz and are more responsive to mouse movement. They are also only 24inch 1920x1080 resolution.

IPS: They look really pretty, have amazing colors, have wide viewing angles. Usually are limited to 60Hz (Yamakasi Catleap OC ones go higher), have a lot wider variety of recolutions and sizes.

The cheaper, the better.
I don't need a large monitor. I don't care for them in the slightest.
19" is what I'm shooting for. That makes it 4 inches larger than my laptop's already decent (for me) 15 inches.

And even if I did want a larger monitor, I'd have nowhere to put it.

I was looking at this model: ASUS VW193TR

It has a lot of good reviews, except one guy who had a bad experience with it.
I'll take that as an isolated incident.

A different guy mentioned that it wasn't for gaming.
I could understand that maybe it doesn't excel at gaming, but I don't see why it would be bad for gaming.

The refresh rate looks decent, and the response time is within the 2ms-5ms gaming range.

Is there something I'm missing?

Let me put it this way, it can work as stated on AMD's website using a multi DP output hub.

To answer the second question though is a no you would not most likely be able to max out most games in this methodology. You will probably be able to run a game like Tomb Raider for instance at high settings but maxing out with 6 displays is pushing it.

The easiest way to do this is the only way...Basically buy the 3 way DP hub, hook up your monitors with adapters to whatever output method your choosing, then hookup the rest.

A:I need help choosing a gaming monitor

you can get something like this:

for gaming the response time should be as low as possible, i havent seen much difference between 1 and 2 ms but between 2 and 5, there is a significant differance.

the higher resolution you use the worse FPS you will get, simply because the gpu has to render more, that will mean you never hit 144+ fps on 2k/4k resolutions

There are many monitor brands available from LG, ViewSonic, Samsung, HannsG (to name just a few). Like everything else, there will be monitors of varying quality across their ranges. I see that you've set yourself an upper price limit of ?250, and you should be able to buy a reasonable monitor from most manufacturers for that.

The best thing to do is to go round some computer shops and view any prospective monitors in action, and make your own judgements on what you actually see, after all you're going to be the one using it.

Good evening

I recently went out and purchased a Benq rl2450H monitor with the intention of using it as an external monitor for my HP Pavillion G6 laptop however, when 5 minutes into a game of Counterstrike: Global Offensive, my laptop shut downs without any notice.

I have attempted to use lower in game resolutions and aspect ratios. I have also attempted using VGA and HDMI connections but to no avail.

My graphics cards drivers are also up to date. This problem has me stumped. It may be that the graphics card can not handle this and if it is the case is there anyway I can reduce the pressure it puts on the Graphics Card.

Thank you in advance.


A:External Monitor and gaming

The PC shutting down would indicate a hardware fault. The external monitor would not cause the laptop to shut down.

Typical causes of shutdowns are a fault with the power supply or motherboard. It could also be heat related, but they you would also typically get an alarm before/during the shutdown.

A:Solved: 2nd monitor to run a gaming console as well?

Most, if not all, modern TV's have multiple input ports, so that you can have multiple devices (DVD players, Video game Systems, etc) hooked up at the same time. Your computer is just another device. Because each set of ports has it's own station (VGA, Video 1, 2), the devices shouldn't interfere with each other. There should be no way a 360 (or other device), could effect your video card, just because both are plugged into your TV.

I'm running a dual monitor setup on an NVidia graphics card. Last night, I just started having this problem where the mouse curser won't 'lock' to my primary monitor when I'm playing a video game. In other words, the mouse is free to move around both monitors. If I click while the mouse is on my secondary monitor, it minimizes the game. This starts to get annoying really fast, especially on games where it takes a while to minimize. I have looked around the forums here and can't seem to find any information on how to fix it. If anybody can help me get this back to how it was before, it would be appreciated.

A:Multi monitor gaming problem

I would assume this is a video card driver setting, check your drivers (maybe update them) for a setting that prevents the mouse from switching displays during games. Many times there is an option for creating a profile for specific settings for specific applications, if possible setting up a profile would be the best option.

Hello everyone. I need some advice on some of the best 17/19 inch Flat screen CRT monitors. I am mainly a hard core gamer and want to upgrade to a new system by first getting a new monitor. I have around 550.00 dollars to spend on one(but if I can save some of that it's fine with me I really like the Sony 19 ' Trinitron Monitors because they have a nice, sharp image. However, the two aperature grill "tie wire" shadows lines slighty annoy me. Is there any other monitor out there that doesn't have these lines and is either equal or better in image quality and sharpness? If it's cheaper than Sony, I am all for that because it seems Sony Monitors are expensive. If someone could tell me which one they suggest and the link where I could purchase it I would greatly appreciate it.

Don't get a flat screen if you wnat to do serious gaming...they won't handle it. And for $500 you would be hard pressed to find anything of any real quality for that little cash. I would look at Viewsonic monitors..they have always been fairly good and have a good warranty.

I plan to get a gaming desktop with Nvidia 970. I need to buy a good but affordable gaming monitor for it. I got some questions...

1) Is a monitor with 144 Hz really necessary for gaming? Will 60 Hz suffice?

2) Can you recommend a good but very affordable gaming monitor?

Hey All

Ive been looking around for a TV/Monitor at PCWorld/Comet etc and theres too many comparisons like one TV has 50hz , one has 100hz but then one has a better contrast ratio etc.

I saw this IILYAMA monitor on Misco:

Would this be a good monitor to use my Xbox 360 on ? and would it run in 1080p mode and not 1080i like most of them ?

If not this monitor, is there a good TV/Monitor you could reccomend for me ? Thanks

Budget of £350

A:Looking for a new monitor for gaming/general pc usage :) [UK]

It really does depend on what your mainly going to use it for. As a rule if you want a TV you really need to stick to 100MHz, 50MHz is fine but sometimes on things like football you get an unwanted shadow with the TV trying to catch up with itself.

What your looking at with Iiyama is more of a monitor rather than a TV, I was quite surprised to see the 1ms response time that is very good most are 5ms and you pay quite abite more for 2ms. I would be tempted to check if the description is accurate.

I would recommend any TV made by LG I have had LG flat screens for the past 5 years and they have never failed me. I haev a 24" LG monitor for my PC and a 40" LG TV in my living room!

For £350 at the minute you can get a very nice TV/Monitor, I would stay away from high street shops though and stick to online retailers try

Hi all,
I was wondering if it was possible to run games(mostly Modern Warfare 2) on the two monitors I have set up, one is 1280x1024 and one is 1680x1050, my graphics card is a 4850.

A:Dual Monitor Gaming with Different resolutions?

You can but you have to run both screens at the same resolution, which is going to be 1280x1024 for you.

A:Whats Your Suggestion for a Gaming Monitor

1) Not necessary at all; it's generally nice to have for all games, but it can be very desirable for specific genres such as FPS (first person shooter) and racing games. Keep in mind that unless you have a very good setup a lot of games won't be running at 60fps anyway (dependent on graphics settings).

2) Personally, I game on a random 60fps 24" 108p monitor that I bought about 8 years ago. It's not amazing, but it's perfectly good. My recommendation will be to just get something in the price bracket of $150-200 to begin with, and get something fancier and nicer down the road if you find that the basic one isn't good enough. You can then always use the basic one as a second monitor.

Hi All

For about nearly a week now I've been experiencing issues with my monitor suddenly displaying "No Signal" while playing League Of Legends for around 30 min. The PC is still on and everything is running but sound completely shuts off and monitor turns black and displays no signal. My CPU temperatures are roughly at 45 Degrees C while idling but have reached near mid 60s during gaming. Haven't changed anything or installed any new programs within the past 3 months.

I have allready tried using a different HDMI cable and the problem still occurs. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

My Specs Are:
Gigabyte Z77-D3H
Intel Core i7-3770K
AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series
2TB Storage Space
8GB Ram
Cooler Master 600W PSU
Running Windows 8.1

I like leaving my 2nd monitor on for monitoring system temps and such, but some games do not lock your mouse in the main monitor, and accidental clicking on the other will minimize the game, often with disastrous results. Does anyone know of a program that will lock my mouse in one screen?
