HIS HD 6790 Fan Pinout (Aftermarket Fan Replacement)

Q: HIS HD 6790 Fan Pinout (Aftermarket Fan Replacement)

Hi guys,

I am replacing the stock fan/heatsink on my HIS Radeon HD 6790 with the Arctic Accellero R2 Plus. This fan has a 3 pin and 4 pin option for the fan. The stock fan is only 2 and red. The aftermarket fan's wiring is black, red and yellow, and black (ground), red (VDC), yellow (signal) and blue (PWM).

My question is can I just splice the original connector with just red and black into the aftermarket wiring? The fan came with a molex adapter but I'd rather the video card be able to regulate the fan rather than it just be going full out all the time. Is the factory red and black also considered VDC and ground?

Thanks in advance!

Chris, if the fan will plug into the motherboard, it will regulate the speed and u will be alright.

Hey guys, so I have an HP Pavilion a1477c. There's something wrong with my motherboard and before I go out and get a new one, I was wondering, should I get a direct replacement motherboard from HP? or should I get an aftermarket motherboard? I'm not sure what I should do. I don't want to over pay for an HP motherboard if there are other (better) options out there for me. Can anyone help?? Thanks in advance!

A:Motherboard OEM replacement? or Aftermarket? So confused..

I'd find out if it is even available from HP and how much it costs before deciding. Good socket 939 motherboards are getting harder to find these days, aftermarket or otherwise, since 939 processors were discontinued awhile ago.

Radeon 6850 or 6790? bumped into some threads in other forums by googling and people are saying that the AMD is a better card than and also found out that uses less power under full-load than a which uses x pin for some reason and also it's based on with defective parts and GTS as well and beats both of them single handedly Now i'd like to know should i put some more money and go for the Radeon P S I'll be buying the card from XFX HIS or Sapphire Here's a link showing Power Consumption of all cards and yes GTX Ti GTS AMD are consuming more power than a under Loads http www techpowerup com reviews H Turbo html

I just got a Powercolor HD6790. I wanted to try overclocking it but with most programs I use, all the device property fields are empty or missing and they only identify it as a Radeon 6700. I've tried the latest versions of Overdrive, CPUZ and Rivatuner and there are no settings for clock speeds or temp. GPUZ does work though.The only cards I've ever seen behave like this are OEM Dell cards.

I would do a clean install of the drivers, using driver sweeper to remove all the old ones. After reinstalling and restarting the computer, download msi after burner, thats the easiest overclocking tool I've used and it works for all graphics cards. In GPUZ can you see all stats? coreclock? temps?

Hello. I just bought a new a8-3870k apu with a Radeon HD 6790 and I'm having trouble enabling crossfire on them. I cannot find the crossfire setting. I was browsing some forums earlier and someone said it was possible to crossfire these two... Was I ill-informed?

Thank you for the help.

A:Enabling Crossfire with A8-3870k and Radeon HD 6790?

I believe they can only pair with Radeon HD 6670, or lower for other CPU models, generally you must stay in the same family; so with the A8 having a Radeon HD 6650 and that would imply only Radeon HD 66xx models would work with it.

Hello all,

Looking for some advice on how to get my graphics card to work in my new(ly built) computer. I have recently upgraded to an ASUS P8Z68-V PRO motherboard and i5 chip with 16gb of G.SKILL Ripjaws RAM with a fresh win7 install. For some reason my computer will not start (even to the bios) with that video card in. I have tried it in another computer, no problem. I have installed the drivers from the disc (while the card was out), no change.

This mobo has an interesting bios i wonder if there is some setting that needs adjusting.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You can order the WWan card from Lenovo at any time and install it yourself. I don't know about any aftermarket WWan card. The ability to do mobile broadband has become an indispensible part of my development station (P50). When I'm in my trusted environment (ie, my office) I have the WWan disabled. But when I'm at a client facility there are many times that I don't want the security exposure of logging into their wireless and can resort to the WWan.  Last spring, I went on a "roadie" and many of the hotels I stayed in did not even have password protected wireless. It was nice to get a little work done without worrying about compromising my entire operation. The WWan is a stable, secure, and fairly inexpensive connection for a variety of situations. Couldn't live without it now!

I have a Dell Inspiron 5000. I'm looking to get a DVD drive for the modular bay. I've seen several advertised - even DVD/CDR and DVD/DVDR. I'm concerned about software. The parts retailers don't included any "bundled software" with these units. I use Nero burning which I got with my external TDK drive. If I got a DVD/CDR drive will my current Nero version work with that? Obviously DVDR will require a software upgrade (I'm pretty sure my Nero version is only CD compatable) but do I need any specific software to read and play DVDs?

Also - any one have a favorite Laptop parts store?

Your W3505 is already a 130W processor, so you have the Performance fan.  Shift over to either the W3680 (search eBay for SLBV2, and you'll find some now at 93.50 USD).  Or, if you want to go from 3.33 to 3.46 GHz speed spend the extra and get the W3690 for about 145.00 off eBay.  That is a psychological thing.... you won't be able to tell the difference in the real world, and all the other main features are identical. The ultimate would be the X5690, which has a single sSpec code of SLBVX, and on eBay used is going now for about 245.00 USD.  I got mine recently with careful shopping for 220.00, but the Revision 1 Z400 cost me only 100.00 plus shipping.  I needed to do this test..... I have posted in here on adding a USB3.0 HP Texas Instruments card.... make sure it goes into a PCIe Gen II slot so bus speed will let it get to USB3.0 max speed.  My post includes info on the HP 5.25 to 3.5 adapter that will let you place my favorite Akasa front interface into that and mount it below your optical drive in the spare bay up top.  I included into on the correct Molex brand 4-wire peripheral to SATA power adapter that I get from to fit that card perfectly.  You end up with 4 USB3 slots, 2 rear/2 front. Here are some links on that process: Here Here and Here   You have the SSD..... Gen II vs Gen III is not really an issue..... stick with plugging that straight into the SATA port 0 on the motherboard.  Dump all SAS.   I've posted here on how to drop your boot times dramatically.... read up on that.  Use the forum's search box above to find these things.   I added a 40x40x20mm Northbridge fan, 4-wire HP version, from a xw6600 motherboard.  Mine is screwed atop the normal silver Northbridge heatsink fins, and there would be several ways to attach that.  The fan blows up away from the motherboard pulling cooler air in through the heatsink from below.  The same fan is used on the Z600 Northbridge.  There is a spare motherboard standard PWM white header near there, and I added an in-line Noctua 4-wire LNA to drop its speed (which I do for all the HP Northbridge fans).  That adds to the length overall and lets the fan plug reach the motherboard header.  The RPM speeds now show up in the temp/rpm section of the Z400 BIOS as a memory cooling fan.  So, the original header appears to have been intended for a memory cooler, but it is perfect for the Northbridge cooling.  The speeds of either of those 2 processors would boost the heat at the Northbridge, and that was my solution (but probably that is not really needed).  I don't know if HP ever did a similar things for some high end Z400s, but seeing that fan used on the xw6600 and Z600 inspired me to add that to this Z400.  You can get those fans with the proper HP wiring by searching eBay, and from China where they were all made.  That specifically is the Delta EFB0412HD -7R49, and that modifier at the end designates the HP 4-wire PWM controlled version.   You want all 6 memory slots filled by identical 2 or 4 GB sticks, with 1333 memory speeds to take best advantage of the HP memory engineering and the fact that they'll be able to run at that speed with those processors. The HP PCIe supplemental power 6-wire cable provides significantly more power than the ATX 75W max standard..... I don't see an issue there for your video card needs, within reason.  Your net pow... Read more

I want to know how difficult would it be to switch my GPU reference cooler to a aftermarket one like this
just an example I don't know if I would want this style but I am considering better cooling since I have reference cards and have them clocked pretty high im sure if I do this it might give me some more room to edge some more out of them

A:Investing in a good Aftermarket GPU cooler

I've seen those too and I wonder how well they would fit. You know, all 7970's or GTX 690s aren't built the same since each manufacturer adds its owns bits. It would seem they would do more cooling if you're current ones are single fan and have a smaller radiator on the heat sink. the extra stick ons for other little chips may be a good thing too.

We are more than willing to test them out and let us know though.

Yes, you will need to install Windows on the new drive. It will work as long as you have either Dell Recovery disks for that computer or you have the OS install disk and the product key for the OS. If installing using a Win 7 install disk, it would also be advisable to go to the Dell website and download all of the drivers you need for your laptop from their website and put them on a USB flash drive so you can install them on the computer after the OS is installed.

He was hoping to have it a little quieter, i told him that i could install a new cooler on the CPU and that would make a difference.

I found a cooler that seemed ok and not too pricey, but i cant find any information on how much noise the standard fan with the CPU actually makes.

I can find many different figures on all sorts of new cooling systems but cant find out anything about the one it will be replacing. Could anyone advise me how much quieter the Zalman CNPS9500LED wil be than the standard fan

I recently Purchased a new Graphics Card for my Dell Dimension 8300, The manufacturer recommends a PSU of atleast 500W. The PSU i currently have in my 8300 is only a 250W.

I purchased a 600W PSU and I assumed that the PSU would fit in my 8300 case considering both were ATX. This was not the case. The AC port on the PSU didn't lineup correctly with my Cutout on the back of the 8300 Case.

So finally to the Question.

Which after market PSU's of at least 500W will fit in the Dell Dimension 8300 Case?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Buy a Dremel or similar tool and cut the hole - better to spend your money on something useful and still use the PSU you are stuck with.

However, if you can return it, simply LOOK at the pictures of psu's at NCIX or similar place and you'll see whee they place the AC input.

The online Lenovo sales rep told me that I would also need the "ThinkPad Mobile Workstation Storage Kit" if I want to buy the P50 with only the 500GB HDD and upgrade it with a PCIe M.2 SSD, but that's not actually correct, right?  From reading this forum it appears that what I would actually need is an M.2 tray, specifically this one: Is that correct?  Is that all I need (other than the tools necessary to actually do the replacement, of course)?

Hi: PSU troulbes on my four year old PC seem to have destroyed my MB. But when I go to tiger or newegg, I am totally bewildered by the choices. The chat guy at techsupport gave me some paramaters: micro ATX, CPU socket slot mPGA478 but that is greek to me. Emachines wants $160 for their version but it warns that all data will be lost and reload of OS is necessary. Can this be avoided? Thank you. --Tom in AZ

Hey guys,

I just got an aftermarket northbridge cooler, and when I went to take out the stock northbridge cooler, I discovered it was connected to this other heatsink which, according to Google, cools the MOSFETs which controls voltage or something P). Is there a chance I can just take it out and leave it bare, like the other MOSFETs above the CPU socket? Here are the relevant details:

I have purchased two controllers for my laptop, the Logitech F710 wireless and the SteelSeries Stratus XL (bluetooth), and both have stopped working. There is nothing wrong with the hardware whatsoever. The Microsoft terms and agreements says that Windows 10 can detect and stop certain aftermarket hardware and programs that infringe on Microsoft's domain, more or lesss.

So, does anyone think Microsoft is purposefully breaking certain hardware through updates?

A:Is Microsoft breaking aftermarket hardware?

There is no physical way that a driver or OS can damage hardware.

Start by removing the devices and their drivers, then reboot ans allow Windows to install its own.

If you have any special software installed, remove it.

It could just be as simple as the two controllers fighting over each other.

Hey guys,

I am thinking of building a budget gaming pc, mainly AMD parts. That is besides the point. It will be the first time building a system and i am worried about putting on thermal paste. I am trying to avoid it, i know that stock CPU coolers are pre-applied with thermal paste so it saves you the hassel of having to put it on. I am wondering if i can find any after-market heatsinks that are pre-applied with thermal paste. I am preferable looking for a fan cooler that is easy to install. I am sure i want to avoid liquid cooling.


A:Solved: CPU Cooling with Aftermarket Heatsinks

It's been my experience that the heatsink/fan that comes with the AMD processors are quite adequate & completely up to the job. As to the pre-applied thermal paste, I always remove that & apply my own. I generally use Arctic Silver. It's easy to spread a thin film using a credit card or similar. There are lots of YouTube How To's.

A:Aftermarket CPU HeatSink for Quad-Core

There are a few things to go over: First, you want to have the latest BIOS installed for that workstation.... there is a recent important update for it (and the xw6600), version 1.46 from October of 2012. Second, are those two quad core Xeon processors in the HP-approved list found in the HP QuickSpecs document for the xw8600 (attached)?  HP did guarantee that you could add in a second duplicate processor to what came with your original build of the xw8600, but we have found here that you generally can upgrade from what came with the box to one or two of any of the processors on the QuickSpec listing.  This is not "supported" but has worked well for many of us.  However, If the processors are not on that list in the QuickSpecs they won't work, because there is a part of BIOS called the microcode that contains the approved list. Third, what is the max TDP for the new processors?  If they each run at 120 Watts or greater then you'll have to deal with some wiring issues.  The xw8600 motherboard can detect when a processor of greater than 80 Watts is in place and then it wants to see a "performance" heatsink/fans combo present.  You can read up on that here if you search under "double tall" and "performance heatsink".  The basic idea is that the hotter processors need better cooling than the standard single tall provides (which work fine for up to and including 80 Watt processors).  There is a way to spoof the motherboard, discussed below. The HP heatsink base dimensions for the socket LGA 771 processors (all xw6400/8400/6600/8600 workstations) are identical, as would be the aftermarket socket LGA 771 heatsink/fans because they're all built to Intel specifications.  LGA 771 and PLGA 771 processors both fit LGA 771 sockets perfectly, by the way. The wiring on the fan plug ends for the xw6400/8400 are a bit different from the xw6600/8600.  Both of these types of single talls have identical 5 pin plug ends, and for the older ones there is a ground jumper wire from pin 1 to pin 5 positions.  For the newer single tall xw6600/8600 heatsinks there is no jumper wire..... the fifth pin position is an empty socket.  Thus, you can take one of the older types and cut out the jumper wire to make it equivalent to what the wiring is in the newer (6600/8600) workstatons.  I have done this, and also the reverse of using the newer type in an older workstation (added in the ground jumper wire for that).  The older type seem to have better cooling than the newer ones, in my experience, if they have their part number end in -001 or -002 as posted here previously. The problem with using an aftermarket socket LGA 771 heatsink/fan is that things above the standardized base may not physically fit in the space you have available in the xw8600.  You'll have to experiment. Regarding the wiring if you get a set of greater than or equal to 120 Watt quad cores, and find a high performance aftermarket heatsink/fan(s) combo that physically fits...... you can spoof the motherboard into thinking that it has the higher performance "double tall" by adding in a jumper wire from the third pin position over to the 5th pin position.  The motherboard wants to see RPM sense data coming from that 5th pin circuit in addition to coming from the 3rd pin position if it has a 120 Watt (or greater) processor installed.  That is how the stock double tall is wired (it provides the RPM sense from the second fan's #3 wire via that 5th pin).  The normal wiring for these fans is like other PWM fans..... ground, 12vDC, RPM sense, PWM control, and the 5th pin for these HP heatsink fans allows special motherboard control.  I have read references to prior failed attempts to use aftermarket socket 771 heatsink/fans in the xw6400 because the individual did not know the d...

Hello all, I have a Z420 and am looking to replace the standard PSU which I know uses a proprietary 18-pin ATX power supply header, and I was hoping that I could get help with the pinout of the header so I can make a standard ATX 24-pin to 18-pin adapter given that the pinout for it does not seem to be provided in the support pages for the Z420 (from what I have seen at least).In my search I have found the Z210 pinout for the ATX power connector which is also an 18-pin header, but I do not want to just assume that they share the same pinout and possibly bork my system.

Does someone know where I can get the pinout for the 10 pin header called "PB/LED" labeled P5 (connector) on the MS-7860 Ver 1.2. (Pro 400 G1 MT)? I have seen manuals that avoid that connector. Note the "missing or key" pin is exactly in the middle (pin #6). I have seen many diagrams with the key or missing pin at one end. That is not my board. This is where the cable containing the power switch (not to be confused with power supply) meets the Motherboard. I am replacing a failed Motherboard (three Months out of new Warranty with no physical indications of damage) with an ASRock H97M Pro4. I has every other connector perfectly wired. The only one I will have to "convert" is P5 (on the very outside edge of the SATA port corner). Thank you for your help.

I am trying to connect a FIC K8MC51G motherboard to a case. The case has a front panel for two USB ports. Each port has a connector for VCC, D+, D-, and ground. I don't know how the pinouts are set up on my motherboard. It shows an arrow and a two next to two of the pins. I'm assuming the arrow is pin 1 and the 2 means pin 2 so if I follow that logic, I at least know which pin is which.

The problem is that I don't know which pins should be placed where. I can't find the manual.

And the front audio is even more confusing. I can't tell which pin is what number since the one with the arrow also has a number 2 next to it. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Overclocked CPU with aftermarket cooler temp range questions

temps are fine, but if you wanted to test the cooler's limits raise the vcore a bit and monitor the temps via BIOS. when the chip idles in the mid to high 40's (and perhaps into the 50s), try running some CPU intensive applications, then monitor temps again. if the processor climbs into the 60s or 70s on load then i would say that's your limit. you may be able to keep the temps down a little bit with a high-performance thermal compound, but consider that an extra step...

Hi. I'm currently working on a T2245 emachine. I have come to the conclusion that the mobo and psu are bad. The machine is out of warranty of course. The EMA parts site does not stock the oem board nor could it be found on ebay or anywhere else for that matter. So, for the sake of saving 90$ for a fresh copy for xp home I was hoping to replace the mobo with an aftermarket. The OEM is an imperial glve with Intel 845GL Chipset. I've heard of people using a mobo with the same chipset without having to buy anything additional. My cousin bought this computer new from BBy and paid WAY too much then and still owes a lot. So the cheaper the solution the better. If anyone has any suggestions of a mobo that would work in conjunction with the restore disks I would love to hear them.
Thanks in advance

A:Emachines doesn't stock OEM mobo-aftermarket suggestions??


I don't know anything about eMachines- you might google for a similar board, and , if you find one, try the recovery discs. I tried that from an old Compaq, and it wouldn't allow it. I got away with re-installing XP Pro onto a new mobo by using the "repair previous installation," but you'd have to have the installation disc, not hte recovery ones. You say the PSU and the mobo are bad, did you check the mobo using a known good PSU?
If not, that could be the only problem. If so, you can get a fully functional OEM Windows XP Home for around $60 at I got one for my mom's, and it works fine. Not pirated, guaranteed genuine, with install key. Then you could get a decent replacement mobo at newegg, etc. Good luck!

Not a huge deal for me since all I had done in the past was enable virtualization. That seems to have cleared the error code (sorta feels like I'm working on my car now clearing the CEL). Here's some of the technical junk for reference: Model Y700-34ISH, BIOS date 11/10/2015, and error code "0135: AUX1 Fan 1 failure"
Mod's Edit: Added solution from original post for clarity.

2 questions really... Is it hard to replace the fan/heatsink on the card? Is it done? If so, what kind of fan/heatsink am I looking for?
I'm planning to overclock it, not severely, just slightly if any.
Did some scouring on the forums and some searching, couldnt find an answer so anything that will lead me in the right direction would be awesome.

Hey Guys,

I have posted a couple times on here about my ongoing home ethernet wiring. In my situation,I am going to have to use one ethernet (cat5e) cable to wire two separate jacks.

First of all, which is the more popular wiring scheme: T-568a or T-568b?

Next, since I'll be wiring two jacks from one cable, what will the pinout be for each of the jacks (which cable pairs go to which pin)? If someone could provide a link or just give me some general info, that would be great!

Hi folks! Is there a place where I can find technical information regarding the "Expansion port 3" ?  I was thinking on building a docking station that could suit my needs, as I could not locate a docking station that could be used with my laptop. If you know the pinout, function of pins and signals of the "Expansion port 3", please, drop me a note, OK? Thanks in advance and regards, Mike

Hey guys thanks in advance for the help. I want to be able to charge my laptop batteries just from a variable DC charger but I dont have any schematics. Is there a general pinout for these battery charging contacts or is it different for each. If so I am primarily interested in older Thinkpads (A31 ... etc) as I have come into a bunch with faulty charger or motherboard charging issues. Thanks again. steve

HI, I have a Sony Vaio RS720g that I need a Front Panel Pinout of the Motherboard to be able to connect the Power Switch and Led's. Someone attempted to install a different board in the case and changed the front panel wiring to another board. I then inherited the problem and can get no help from Sony. Says it's a secrect. Any help would be appreciated. This MB has PTGD-VX stamped on it.
Oh yea NEVER BUY A SONY. Thanks

A:vaio RS720g motherboard front panel pinout

the pin out should be standard as follows: 2 rows of 10 pins with gaps. Providing you do not leave things connected permanently you cannot damage anything - it might stop but thats all. Pin 1 is commonly the furthest away from any corner.
1 = pwr led +
3 = pwr led -
5 = pwr led -
7 = null
9 = null
11 = null
11 = null
13 = spkr
15 = null
17 = null
19 = spkr
next row
2 = HDD +
4 = HDD -
6 = null
8 = null
10 = null
12 = pwr
14 = pwr -
16 = null
18 = reset
20 = reset -

hope this helps.

The board is Intel D845EPT2 with Intel 845 SE chipset. I found an English manual at the Intel site; but, it has nothing in it about the front panel LEDs, power switch, reset, etc. in all of its 80 (+/-) pages. I guess this board was originally intended to be used in a case that had a front-panel wiring block.

I did a Google search and came up with a plethora of irrelevant information.

I guess there might be a standard arrangement that Intel uses; but, I can't find anything indicating that either.

Thanks in advance.

Is there such a thing? My motherboard doesn't have firewire, and for the life of me i can't find a single expansion card that has an internal pinout that I can connect the cable for my front firewire port to. The closest I found was not low-profile compatible.


and this is for the computer in my description, but on monday I'm switching out the case for a low profile hec 7K09 HTPC case.

I'm trying to help my friend's kid put his Inspiron 660s components into a new case (NXT Guardian 921), and need the pinout of the Power Button Connector (LEDH1) on the motherboard. Unfortunately I do not have the old 660s case at the moment to try and trace out the old wires. I have been able to successfully find a set of pins that works for the Power Switch, but cannot figure out which ones are for the HDD LED and the Reset Switch on the NXT case.
I also have a multimeter, but not sure what voltages I should be checking for, or if jumpers are used on the Dell pigtail connector.

As I had the money for it (one paycheck and then the next paycheck) I purchased 64 megs and 128 megs of RAM manufactured by PNY to install in my Compaq Presario 5461. I also want to buy a Western Hard Drive (20 gigs)to install for this Compaq computer.

But now someone told me that none of these will fit in my Compaq because it has a proprietary bus.

Is this true?? I hope not -- I can't afford what Compaq's selling!

I have this PC Chips K7 motherboard, it's got integrated video, but wow does it suck. I'm pretty sure there's a way that I can add my Radeon to the system, but I don't know how. I put it in today, and the screen didn't even start, probobly because of an irq conflict. What's the correct way to do this?

I need the 9pin video pinout (or any information) of an 8bit 512kb Metheus 8842 086-05219-03 video card from an IBM XT I have been trying to get running.

I have a hi-res Mitsubishi BNC monitor that should work with the card if I can build a proper cable.

The card is rating at 1024x768 x 42hz which matches my old monitor, but all I get is garbage on the screen as the cable I have is not properly setup for this card. I know the XT works properly (with a different video card).

This card is an original from 1987 and is very unique and I would like to get this old autocad unit running in original condition (minus the original monitor)

The card has a Metheus 022-04900-00 M8650304 GPU and a matched 022-04899 chip onboard. the only other number on the card is 080-05220-05

Anyone have any idea what this unit is?

I purchased one of these adapters the other day and you have to put it together yourself.

The RJ12 end is ready to go. Four wires are there to connect to the backend of the DB9 connection.

I have Black, Green, Red and Yellow. I need to know what pins (from the back-view) these wires connect to. Thanks in advance!

I've been having many issues with WMP and cant find any alternatives to this piece of crap. I need to find something that does not eat my resources, uses mp3 tags, and can sync devices. I loved Rhythmbox in Ubuntu but can find anything similar to it for stupid Windows. Can someone help?

Lately, I haven't been satisfied with WD. I went searching for a better alternative and came across one that I liked, looked similar in interface to WD but with better features... did I download it right away? Nope! I don't even remember what it was called or anything about the website. Right now, I'm only using Spybot S&D with WD, Avast and NetVeda as my firewall.

Suggestions? I'm not necessarily looking for THAT elusive program I shoddily described, just anything that I can replace WD with. I've already tried the free v. of Ad-Aware, but it tends to freeze on my comp.

HI,I am not sure where this discussion should go but lets start here.
I still have not resolved the internet connection problems my PC so i think if i can afford another PC i will go that route now,but my question today is if i get a newer PC with a WIN7 OS already installed can i take the one out of the other PC install it in the newer PC and not bring a malware or virus problem with it and destroy newer PC.
I am not sure if you can do that but would like to know before i get into something i can not fix easily,thank you

A:new PC replacement

This is not a good idea. You will run into all kinds of problems - malware being the least concern. Drivers and activation will be your main problems. I assume your current OS is an OEM system.

A fresh system is always the way to go. And don't be afraid of Windows 8.1. It is a nice system. With a couple of days of training you will love it - fast, reliable and lots of nice features.

What are you looking for - laptop or desktop.

Hi All,

With all the discussion around the forum about the pros and cons of vista's UAC, the news of a better alternative, when it arrived in my inbox today, (from Technibble), looked to be a perfect answer.

However a look around the web found this information on the package, (Smart UAC Replacement), found this warning about the developers of the package.

The package looks like a perfect answer to some of my annoyances with UAC and is available / recommended on sites I would normally class as trusted, so wanted to ask if anybody has any further information or comments.

A:UAC Replacement?

I agree this looks sooo good, but, do we trust the provider? I don't think I will be the first one to try it out.
