New NVIDIA GTX card in HP TouchSmart 610 Quad series All-In-One desktop

Q: New NVIDIA GTX card in HP TouchSmart 610 Quad series All-In-One desktop

I am SERIOUSLY thinking of buying HP TouchSmart 610 Quad series All-In-One desktop with following (customized) specs.

However, I DO NOT like the graphics card 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M - looks like they are putting laptop graphics card into a desktop.

My question(s) is/are :

Can I replace this card with one of the NVIDIA GTX series graphics card ? Which one will you recommend? I want to put in a new GTX 590 or any of the following :

GeForce GTX 580
GeForce GTX 570
GeForce GTX 560 Ti
GeForce GTX 560 (new!)
GeForce GTX 550 Ti
GeForce GTX 460

Will it be a simple SWAP or I need to upgrade PSU as well.

If I need to replace PSU what will be specifications of the new PSU? I do not know what is the rating of the current PSU. Do you think, it will handle the new GTX card?

I've been looking into purchasing a new Nvidia GPU that supports DX11.

I have an EVGA motherboard, however, the GPU does not have to be from that subsidiary company. I was looking between the 460 and the 470, and couldnt decide whether or not the extra hundred bucks for the 470 would be worth it or not. I will not be using 3D vision, so count that out.

I didn't want to get the 480 since thats around 500 bucks.

What are your opinions? I will be playing games such as Crysis 2 when that comes out, Battlefield BC2, Medal of Honor, Dirt 2, Metro 2033, Mafia II, etc.

My system specs are as follows:
EVGA P55V 120-LF-E651-TR Intel chipset motherboard
Intel i7-860 Quad CPU @ 2.8ghz
OCZ Gold 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 1333mz PC3 10666 (OCZ3G1333LV4G63581470)
as of now i have the EVGA nvidia ge-force 9800 gtx GPU
and my PSU is an LSP Ultra 750w ATX.

A:I don't know which graphics card to purchase (Nvidia 400 series)

460 is far more useful.

Howdy all,

The amazing folks at Tech Spot saved my bacon many moons back, helping me fix a virus laden laptop for my sick kid. And so I turn to you with my latest computer nightmare and beg of your assistance once again!

I just bought a new HP ENVY TouchSmart 17t-j100 Quad Edition Notebook PC (ENERGY STAR) for my daughter for Christmas. It arrived yesterday and I opened it up, to start preloading her software onto it so she can have it ready to go Christmas morning.

Unfortunately, the thing just won't let me get connected to the internet via wifi!

It is using an Intel Wireless-N 7260 adapter, running Windows 8.1 (factory installed). I have tried everything I could think of - using Intel drivers instead of Microsoft ones, resetting WINSOCK, flushing the DNS, using a static IP instead of dynamic, the works. Nothing appears to be working. The device can clearly see my network - it shows up on the list of connections, and validates my security information (running standard WEP security - not the best I know but it's easier for the multitude of tech I have on my network, all of which connects fine), but it only gives me limited access and does not want to connect to the network or the internet.

My base system is running Windows 7. My router is a Netgear Rangemax Wireless-N Gigabit Router WNR3500 v2.

I have not tried a hardwire connection yet, as I really need this to be a wireless device.

Help me, TechSpot're my only hope!

Hello, my HP Envy has been acting up after I restored it from a restore point. The restoring process worked great and did what it was suppose to do. I installed a Bluetooth/Wireless driver supported by intel, it installed like it should have. Then it asked me to reboot, so I did, then I was prompted on a black screen with an error message of:

The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.
error code: 0xc0000001

So I brought it onto myself to check other forums to see if there was a solution to this error. I tried a bunch of different things and nothing worked. So I formatted my hard drive via Command Prompt. After that was done, I tried reinstalling the operating system(Windows 8). That didn't work, it said the Operating System on my flashdrive was bad. This is false because I've used the same flashdrive for many reinstallations. So I tested it on a computer I did not care a whole lot for to make sure it still worked. Sure enough, it worked... I even tried switching out the hard drive, with another computer that has Windows 8 already installed on it. I get the error message: "Please install an operating system on your hard disk." As if there was no, hard drive attached. I'm not sure what to do at this point. I have completely lost hope for this very expensive laptop. I called HP and they said all I have to do it buy a flashdrive from their store with the recover... Read more

Okay, so the issue started when I had proper original ATI drivers installed and blue screen kept on occurring. This was frustrating and in between there were line grains all over the display and it used to get heated up fast. So I did a fresh reinstallation of Windows 7 and besides installing ATI drivers and kept it as it is, so that it would run on Integrated HD Graphics. This ran pretty well for a month's casual usage. But when I started to view 1080p videos, display suddenly flashed and showed lesser line grains. And for few days, whenever I switched the thing on, it used to boot up with different colours which kept playing, like yellow, red, blue, green, white. I switched it off immediately and waited a while before I could switch it back on.So when I turned on the PC, I could hear it working from the inside, and even heard Windows loading up. Everything was working but the display unit. It did not even show the BIOS and HP messages. This has no hdmi ports, otherwise I could have checked and connected it to another display and made it to work.Please help as I've tried the hard resetting methods found online.

Today, NVIDIA will be releasing their Forceware v91.37 drivers and with them will be officially endorsing Do-It-Yourself Quad-SLI. HotHardware has put together an article detailing the steps necessary to assemble and configure a high-end Quad-SLI rig, and they give some thoughts regarding XHD Gaming and its associated costs. Those of you that are hell-bent on gaming ultra-high resolutions (1920X1200 or 2560X1600 for example), along with the highest available image quality, might want to give one of these setups a look."

Hello there, I've already put a post up with Microsoft and with NVIDIDA, so I am now going to try my luck with guys. I'll try to explain what has happened so far. I have an HP Z400 Desktop PC equipped with a NVDIDA Quadro 380 FX GPU. Recently, I did a clean install of Windows 10 before the free upgrade offer was over. It has been working great, except for when I play The Sims 4. I used to play the Sims on Windows 7 with the same set up and never had an issues or bluescreens. I have tried to update the driver with the latest release. I have also rolled back. After 5-10 minutes of running the Sims, it crashes with a VIDEO_TDR_FAILURE (nvlddmkm.sys) and sometimes KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (nvlddmkm.sys).The game runs excellent until the blue screen. No stalls, weird colours, etc. I had no issue running it with Windows 7.My PC works great until I open the game. All other applications run smoothly (web, word processing).Microsoft forums suggested updating the BIOS, chipset and any other major drivers. I would like to have someone's opinion from here before I proceed.  Thanks for any insight you can provide!

A:Z400 Desktop - NVIDIA Graphics Card BSOD after Win 10

@Samantha24?, welcome to the forum. I have had symptoms very similar to those you are experiencing when gaming.  The solution to my problems was installing all of the patches that I found for the games.  Also, games place a lot of stress on the video card. The fact that you were able to play the games without any problems with Win 7 and are having problems with Win 10 is not surprising.  Win 10 is a complete different operating system.  It is not even close to Win 7.  Remember, Win 8 and 8.1 have been released since Win 7.  You should run HP and Windows Updates to assure the software and drivers are up to date.

A:Overclocking an Nvidia 8800 Ultra/ Quad Core 2.5

You can't overclock your Ultra like that. You can only overclock the frequency speeds, like the core speed and memory speed, not the amount of physical memory.

Overclocking your CPU from 2.5 to 3.0GHz should be easy. I overclocked my CPU from 2.66GHz to 3.0GHz easily with no problem.

Your graphic cards are fine for GTA4. GTA4 doesn't use SLI yet, and 1 Ultra is enough. A friend of mine is running GTA4 with a Core i7 920 and a single Ultra and he gets 65fps on max everything.

Core i7s run GTA4 amazingly, quad cores run it well, but still get some slowdowns on maximum everything.

I have a thread over in General where we were trying to determine the cause of a graphics glitch where once Win 7 x32 was booted the screen would glitch out to where it looked like multi-colored ladders with jumbled colors all across the screen.

After running several tests and trying different things, I'm fairly certain its a problem with the nvidia 7 series drivers themselves and win 7 x32.

I just tested an Nvidia 9300 GS card with a Intel Corei3 HD 2000 graphics system. Here is the windows experience index scores I got :

Nvidia 9300 GS :
Base Score 3.9

- Processor : 7.1
- Memory : 7.5
- Graphics : 3.9
- Gaming Graphics : 5.1
- Hard Disk : 5.9

Intel HD 2000 :
Base Score : 5.2

- Processor : 7.1
- Memory : 5.9
- Graphics : 5.2
- Gaming Graphics : 5.8
- Hard Disk : 5.9

My questions are :

When using Intel HD graphics, it reduces the score of my Ram! How is that possible? It checks the speed of the ram. Not the size (i think). Intel graphics take some of the ram space but how can that effect the speed?

From both of them, what will be the good choice?

A:Nvidia 9 series or Intel HD 2000?

I'm pretty sure the Wei takes into account the amount of available ram in addition to the speed which would account for the reduction in the wei.

Also upon checking passmark it would appear that the Intel HD graphics does out perform the 9300 gs although I would need which i3 processor you have to confirm

i3 G3D rating is 200+
9300 GS G3D rating 138.

out of the two I guess you should stick with the integrated graphics since it is better unless you need the extra Ram that is uses

It all started when i installed the second card. Its a Gigabyte GTX 580 1,5gbram, and the one i had in already is a EVGA GTX580 SuperClocked, also 1,5 gbram. They are suppose to be the same.

I had alot of problems with the monitor not wanting to turn on, so after switching the cards around about 5 times, it suddendly works. The EVGA card is on top, windows recognize that i am running SLI. Suddendly i get audio problems. I hear weird static comming from the speakers, i have no idea where that comes from. It starts basically a few seconds after i turn on the computer, so its before it even enters windows. I also get a red flashing light at my RAM for a few secs, then a flashing red light at the PCI-E ports, and then one further down i dont know what is for.

The weird static persists, even after i pulled the other card out, so i am only running 1. Suddendly my computers bios also reset, so it showed that the year was 2002, and windows could not update because of it. What could be causing this?

I have not hooked up SLi before. I have a 1000w powersupply, so i know it can handle but, but the wires going out of my PSU, some are threaded with some fabric and says PCI-E. Are those the ones i am supposed to use for the cards? I did that, and it changed nothing.

Here is a chart listing the specs of all the upcoming 8000 series GPUs.

From Left to Right here are the columns:

First Column: Card Name
Second Column: Core/Memory speed
Third Column: Memory Type
Fourth Column: Memory Bus
Fifth Column: Memory Size
Sixth Column: Number of Unified Shaders
Seventh Column: Manufacturing Process (eg 80nm, 90nm)
Eighth Column: MSRP

Interesting to note that the 8600GT/8600GS are STILL on a 128-bit memory bus. And the chart is mysteriously missing the rumored 8600 Ultra, I guess it's been renamed the 8600GT, and the old 8600GT has become the 8600GS...

And despite the low number of unified shaders (only 32) the 8300GT looks like it could be a real bang for the buck card ala 7300GT. It just seems kind of neat that the core clock of the 8300GT will be faster than the current top of the line 8800GTX :stickout: And the memory speed is ungodly for a budget card.

Whoops, I guess I'd better credit the site I got this from.

I recently updated my G30-175 from windows update (Running Windows XP), after which i began receiving a "Code 10" on my nVidia Go Series 7600 chipset. Since this has happened i have tried rolling back the graphics driver (When it first happened,) which when it rebooted it was running fine, and i subsequently shut down the system. When i booted up again the next day i had the same Code 10 issue.

I tried to use a system restore but to no avail. I decided to uninstall the graphics drivers, and install the ones for winXP from the Toshiba drivers, and all i got was Blue Screen of Death, after getting it to boot in safemode, i uninstalled the driver, and installed nVidia reccommended driver (Beta release 179.48 for winXP) i also tried some older nVidia drivers i found for the Go 7600 and the result remained the same "Code 10" Can not start device.

I have read a lot of blog about this for the 7, 8 and 9 Series, which generally say their are "Issues" with the drivers, and to use the windows update nVidia drivers. I tried this, and still no change.

Not having the original disks for the notebook i decided to take it upon myself, and upgrade the RAM from the 2x512mb sticks to 2x2Gb DDR3 Notebook RAM, the system booted fine and i decided to install windows 7, as from what i read, this was the best option (For the 7 series desktop cards, after finding "NO" blog about the Go 7 series) After installing win7 the chipset began to work fine, th...

This place looks fairly active so I thought I'd try it out and I hope everyone can help me out .

I've been planning to buy a new gaming PC for years, and now I'm finally ready to start buying parts.

Here is what I was planning on buying:

Tower: HAF 912

CPU: Intel i5 2500k 3000 HD graphics

MOBO: LGA 1155 Z68 USB 3.0 type motherboard (really don't know which one to get)

RAM: 2 x 4 (8GB) preferably with a heatspreader on (don't know what to get)

DVD: Standard dvd burner (don't know which one to get)

Powersupply: 80 plus bronze/gold certified and has enough wattage for SLI in the future

HDD: 1TB 7200RPM (don't have a specific one in mind)

OS: Windows 7

GPU: Now, the thing is, with the 600 series around the corner, I'm wondering if I should hold off my build and wait for it (I'm willing to wait), and just buy my tower, DVD, HDD and OS while I wait, because these don't really require any special compatability. Otherwise I was looking at a GeForce GTX 570

Then when the 600 series comes out I will figure out what MOBO, RAM, CPU, PSU etc I will need for them (although I'm sure the i5 2500k will suffice)

A:First gaming PC build -- should I wait for Nvidia 600 series?

As you have already found ou, there will always be another "best" or another want... Get it now... Build it now, then use what you learn to design a better one, and sell this build to a friend. Don't wait... or you will wait for a new SSD... or a new Windows 8, or a new Super Duper...

Dear Anyone

This is a common problem with Sony and Nvidia where I cannot install the driver to make the graphics card work.

I installed windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and have tried all the suggestions I can find to install the display driver with no luck.

I know there will always be something bigger, better, and faster coming out on the market but when I originally built my desktop I chose a Mid-tower because I didn't want a High-tower due to the size etc... but I do dislike the mid-tower because it leaves about an inch of space for air flow from the intake fan to the output fan, due to its size. I recently got back from school so I have yet to set-up my desktop but I put in it a EVGA Nvidia 9800 GX2 graphics card which was the new and best, and this was only a year ago now.

I haven't really been following new cards and such for a while but can anyone give me a summary of what has happened since the 9800 GX2? I know some are now equipped with DDR3 but what else about them is making them the new and better series?

Would there be any advantage to upgrading to a 2 or 4 series?


A:The New Series Of Nvidia Graphic Cards vs. The 9800's

Their are always advantages, 2 series pending on the exact model.Newer manufacturing techniques, power consummation, more memory, faster memory, higher memory interface (bit). 4 Series DX11, 2 DVi and 1 hdmi out multi monitor support, and the afore mentioned. It would really depend on what you mainly use your card for. Since the card you have is a pretty good one to start with. JMO Fabe

I have looked through the web searching for solutions for my horrible graphic card driver for quite a while now. The problems with it is when I start up my PC, my screen will turn black and then function. But it will keep again and again until my computer enters BSOD . Some suggested that you turn up the amount of electricity going to your graphic card, back date it, and much more too.

Interesting.  I had heard about the 200 pin variants of memory modules present on some DDR2 and DDR3 modules but have not encountered them. There have indeed been errors in publishing specifications on the HP support website. I have never heard of Crucial making such an error. If Crucial states their module for the PC is guaranteed compatible, you should be able to take it as a fact, since their reputation as a maker of memory modules is on the line. UPdate: It is definitely an HP mistake. I just read on the support document that the memory for your motherboard has 240 pins and I know that is definitely inaccurate. See the following document on the memory upgrade sectionb.

Nvidia Corp.?s latest beta drivers include support of what can possibly the company?s next-generation graphics processing units (GPUs) made using 28nm process technology. The actual chips are projected to officially emerge next year, but Nvidia may easily be tailoring its software for the new hardware.

The latest unreleased Nvidia ForceWare 285-series drivers contain mentioning of GeForce 610M and GeForce GT 630M graphics adapters for notebooks, according to a news-story by VR-Zone web-site. It is believed that the new GPUs belong to GK100-series chips that are based on the code-named Kepler micro-architecture.

Nvidia said earlier this year that it plans to test-drive its next-generation Kepler graphics processing unit (GPU) this year and introduce the new chips commercially in 2012.

Nvidia Releases Updated Linux Drivers for the Old GeForce 8 and 9 Series

Lots of fixes have been implemented in this release
Nvidia has updated the Legacy branch of the Linux drivers and developers have fixed quite a few issues. This is a driver aimed at older hardware, so if you just got your shiny and new Titan video card, this driver will be of no use to you.

Spoiler: Nvidia 340.93 Changelog
- Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if an OpenGL application tried to allocate a drawable when GPU-accessible memory is exhausted.
- Fixed a bug that could cause an Xid error when terminating a video playback application using the overlay presentation queue in VDPAU.
- Updated nvidia-installer to avoid recursing too deeply into kernel source trees under /usr/lib/modules, mirroring an existing restriction on recursion under /lib/modules.
- Fixed a rare deadlock condition when running applications that use OpenGL in multiple threads on a Quadro GPU.
- Fixed a kernel memory leak that occurred when looping hardware- accelerated video decoding with VDPAU on Maxwell-based GPUs.
- Fixed a bug that caused the X server to crash if a RandR 1.4 output provided by a Sink Output provider was selected as the primary output on X.Org xserver 1.17 and higher.
- Fixed a bug that caused waiting on X Sync Fence objects in OpenGL to hang indefinitely in some cases.
- Fixed a bug that prevented OpenGL from properly recovering from hardware errors or sync object waits that had timed out.

I am planning to buy a new laptop this weekend, and I want a desktop replacement - just tired of small screens and low performance, and, unfortunately, I simply do not have a desk to put a high-end desktop. If I was to buy a desktop, it would certainly be equipped with a Core i7-860 2.8 GHz processor. While I cannot replicate such power in a notebook, I am trapped in a dilemma of choosing between four cores or a high clock speed. In a desktop, it seems to me that such dilemma does not exist, since the processors can use more power and have higher clock speeds: it would be worth more to have a 2.66 GHz or a 2.8 GHz four-core than a 3.2 GHz or a 3.33 GHz dual-core. But in laptops, it's a completely different story.

The contenders are basically the Core i7-620m and the Core i7-720QM (or the i7-740QM), and the runner-up is the Core i7-820QM (and i7-840QM), if it is really worth it.

I have done extensive research on the Internet. The sources are not many, but it led to to some conclusions.

The Core i7-720QM 1.6 GHz has 4 cores and 8 threads, but a low clock speed (1.6 GHz) that can be increased up to 1.73 GHz with all cores operating. It can go as high as 2.4 GHz with only two cores. The Core i7-620M, on the other hand, has a clock speed of 2.66 GHz, which can be increased up to 3.06 GHz with Turbo Boost using all cores.

Theoretically, the i7-720QM would be a superior processor. Intel has put a higher number to identify it (7 instead of 6... duh...). Four cores op... Read more

My system came with Windows 7 Professional installed; I then upgraded to Win 8 and then Win 10, and am now running Windows 10 Professional 64 bit. After upgrading to Win 10, my TV tuner lost the sound. I still get a great picture, but can't get any sound with it. Is there any fix for this? I realize that my system is not supported for Windows 10 by HP, but it appears that the TV tuner was a joint collaboration between HP and AverMedia, who have told me that they can't help me but sent me back to HP for a fix for this. Secondarily, I've been trying to upgrade to the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, but each time I do, when it gets to the last stages of the upgrade, when the system is rebooting itself every few minutes, I finally get a message that one of my components can't be configured, whereupon the install stops completely and returns to the last operative operating system. I sought help from Microsoft, but their tech support saw that my computer is not supported for Windows 10 by HP, so he stopped trying to assist me. The funny thing is that I have an identical computer in my office, which took the upgrade to the Windows 10 Anniversary edition without a hitch. Can any HP engineer help me with these issues?

So I have just acquired a little desktop PC that has this card in it but im not really sure about it, I have done a bit of googling but I don't understand the purpose or the price tag of this card.

I should say that I am not a gamer and have never owned any sort of performance gfx card other than basic display when a machine has no onboard gfx. The machine this card is in has a good spec i7 3770, 16gb ram, Samsung 840 pro SSD etc and was used in retail premises to drive a large screen advertisement (46-48 inch ish).

I need to remove it from the machine as it is an itx based system and this card is absolutely filling the case edge to edge and I want to add an optical drive and second storage drive if I can fit it in

If anyone knows about this card or has any info they can enlighten me with I would be very grateful.
Do I keep it/sell it, can I game with it ?

A:Quadro K4000 quad display gfx card

The NVIDIA Quadro K4000 is a workstation video card and is similar to a GeForce GTX 780

You can game on it but expect the performance to be a little bit slower because it only runs great on OpenGL

or you could sell it for a good deal

Hi - My HP Envy 23 will not boot up. Every time I turn it on, nothing appears on the screen and I hear 5 long beeps accompanied by the power button flashing 5 times. From what I've found, this seems to be related to my graphics card, but when I looked up the specs on this computer, it doesn't seem like there's a dedicated graphics card. It seems like there's an integrated graphics card. Is there a way to fix this?HP Envy Touchsmart 23 All In One (AIO) PC series - recline versionModel No. 23-k027cProduct no. H6U00AA#ABA

Can you upgrade the graphics card in an IQ506.  I want to get something that is compatible for windows 8 and touch but I dont know what or if I can.  I have the Nvidia 9300M GS that came with my IQ506 and it doesnt allow the touch screen to work even with the latest driver.  I had to load the 9300 and not the 9300M because the Nvidia driver doesnt recognize the 9300M as the correct hardware for for it.  Touch works fine if I disable the graphics card but games are very very choppy.

I have one of these and it received the Windows 10 update automatically. But given it was very slow I decided I would repalce the internal HD with a SSD. Powered the unit off and moved it to another location to work on it. However when powering up it took a very long time to get past the splash screen and then said no boot device.  Looked like the HD had died so took the back off and tried to connect the HD to another PC using a USB SATA dock. The PC could not see the drive which seemed to confirm that the HD had died. Replaced the HD with a 120GB SSD, managed to get into the BIOS to make the DVD drive the first boot device and restarted. But after waiting a long time (I got into the BIOS to show diagnostics) the PC shows Iniatilizing USB Drives and then hangs for a long time. Eventualy it tries to boot as I can see the DVD drive spin a bit and that happens is a blinking cursor. I have tried Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 discs and all behave the same. I cannot get the device to boot from any device not even display a message that the boot device (in this case the SSD) is not valid. I have tried putting a bootable SD card in the drive which has worked with other PC's but it's not recognised.  Before I toss it I wonder what else I could do. While it's only Core 2 Duo it has 4GB RAM and with a SSD I think it would go well and the touch screen and other accessories make a good home machine. Thanks

I have a DV7t Quad edition laptop and the WIFI card has recently been acting up and finally failed. I purchased a "for HP' Intel 7260HMW card and installed it, at to my chagrin, my laptop refused to boot. Why on earth is there a whitelist for wifi cards. Especially in a laptop this old. There have been several Bios upgrades but it would appear none allow the PC owner to improve their machine to achieve some added longevity and updated technology. Is there a version of BIOS I can install on this computer that does not contain this asinine whitelist?

April. Your manual here. Page 29 you will find the model numbers and part numbers of WiFI cards for your laptop. Because of FCC regulations for LOW-POWER, NON-LICENSED TRANSMITTERS those are the only ones that can be used. There is no official BIOS to unlock the Whitelist. REO

Does anyone here actually have, or know someone who has, one of these computers?
It sounds like a good buy (WalMart), and I read the various reviews but of course I have no way of knowing if they are real/true or not.
The sealed liquid cooling, does that mean no maintenance ever?
I do not normally do a lot of internal work/replacement other than upgrading video cards and so the limited upgrades would probably not bother me very much.

Hello, and thank you for checking out my post.  My apologies for writing a book, but I'm hoping to give as much detail as needed the first go round. I just received my custom-built T420s (4170-CTO) and have a couple technical questions/concerns about it.  The details of my configuration are located at the bottom of this post. First off, one of the deciding factors of my purchase was the discrete graphics card.  On the T420s I chose NVIDIA NVS 4200M Optimus Graphics 1GB, Intel Core i7-2620M Processor?.  I was thrilled to have more than 256 MB of dedicated graphics memory for my games.  Upon receiving my laptop, though, I ran the Windows Experience Index and saw that the lowest score was the graphics card, which is identified as Intel HD Graphics Family and has 64 MB of dedicated graphics memory.  After my heart started beating again I checked Device Manager and found under Display both Intel HD Graphics Family and NVIDIA NVS 4200M listed as working with up-to-date drivers.  When I configured the laptop online there was no mention of hybrid graphics, so I'm not sure why I have an Intel Graphics card on the machine.  My current laptop that I was looking to replace is a T61p with a NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M graphics card, and only that NVIDIA card is shown under Device Manager and in the Windows Experience / Performance Information.  Thinking that perhaps disabling the Intel card would cause the NVIDIA card to take over, I disa...

The T420s with Nvidia GPU has two graphics card that can switch on the fly, if you only want the discrete gpu, just go into your bios menu under graphics there is an option to select discrete.With the Nvidia Optimus (which is what you have), it can switch between Nvidia and Intel GPU depending on your application needs. This will allow you to conserve battery or power. Expresscard slot 34 mm slot is occupied by the card reader that you ordered. What you are talking about within the ram slot cover, is the mPCIe slot, which can be occupied by a mSATA drive.

I am looking for a RAM card for an old HP 6600 series computer running Windows 95. Does anyone have any suggestions on a card.

A:Need RAM card for HP 6600 series

Wow, I haven't seen an old HP Pavilion 6000 series computer in a good long time! Your going to be a little hard pressed when going to your local computer store and trying to buy a stick of RAM for this thing. Man, a 6600 running Windows 95, I haven't seen a computer run Windows 95 in eons. Well I'll try my best to snap out of my little "shock and ahhhh" thing and get back to talking about the RAM.

Again, going to your local computer store might be pointless, most likely they aren't going to have anything for you. But by happens chance I took the liberty in doing a bit of searching on-line for a supplier that still provides RAM for the old HP Pavilion 6000 series. Give the following place a look...

Arch Memory Store

Now seeing what I saw on that web site made me shake my head and think to myself that upgrading this old dinosaur of yours might not be worth it. This web site only provides 3 different memory sizes for your computer. (1) 32MB's, (2) 64MB's and last (3) 128MB's of memory! I'd hate to hear what your system currently has as far as the amount of memory it has. With a bare minimum of 64MB's of RAM your system will run really bare bones and "no thrills" with something like Windows 2000 Professional! Your going to have to pump it up a notch and maybe try for 128MB's of RAM, if you want to install and run things, a... Read more

So, ive been debating on whether or not build a new i7 machine, and although I really, really want one ... I can't really justify the cost ATM.

Being as what I want will run me about $900 and that excludes a new GPU Im thinking maybe just upgrade the GPU now, and put the whole new platform on hold for 6months -> a year.

Anyway, I currently have a HD 4890 Vapor-X & I really want to stay with Sapphire for an ATI card. Simply because I have a few of them and they've all been fantastic.

What Im looking at:

5850 2GB Toxic ($369) - SAPPHIRE Toxic 100282-2GTXSR Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

5850 1GB Toxic ($309) - SAPPHIRE TOXIC 100282TXSR Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Theres also a Vapor-X version of this same card. Only difference is its not factory OC'd and a bit cheaper at $294)

5870 1GB Vapor-X ($394) - SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100281VX-2SR Radeon HD 5870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

So, Im curious if anyone knows if the 2GB memory will help any at all over the 1GB at 1920x1080? I do like using AA and AF.
ive seen both reports, yes it helps and no it doesnt untill higher res above 1080P.

Would the 5870 be worth the extra cost over the 5850?
Im wondering if the Toxic 5850s may perform nearly as well as the 5870.

Gentlemen/Ladies: I am strongly considering the purchase of above HP Desktop. I will use the system for surfing the web and video and photo editing. I am a novice in the area of video and photo editing. I am taking up the craft as a hobby and see where it takes me. The primary components of the system will be as follows:

- Windows 7 Home Premium (Upgrading to Windows 8 when available)
- Processor:3rd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K quad-core processor [3.5GHz, 8MB Shared Cache]
- Memory: 16GB DDR3
- HD: 256GB SSD + 1 TB 7200 HD
- GPU: 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX680 [DVI, HDMI and VGA via adapter]
- Power Supply: 600 Watt
- Liquid Cooling Solution
- Monitor: Looking at Dell 27"2560x1440

The system comes equipped with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere 10

HP's Phoenix series is a favorite of some gamers. I was considering an Imac but decided against it because I wanted to stay with a PC. My question to the forum is are these components a little overkill? The price is not a barrier for me.

A:Is the HP-HPE h9-1210t Phoenix series Desktop Overkill for Me

I guess it will depend on how much video editing you end up doing. It is absolutely overkill for surfing the web, and overkill if you only do a little photo editing. The extra cores will help with the video editing, but you will never use them surfing the web. Even if you do gaming it will not help much. Games rarely use 4 cores of a processer. If you want a system like that, you would be better off building it yourself. It really isn't as hard as most people think and you will get better quality components, and exactly what you want. And you always have the experts here in chosing components and assembling the computer.

Hello!  I went to put my desktop into sleep mode before bed last night and noticed it had turned off.   No idea why.  I go to turn it on and NOTHING.  No lights, no sounds, no fans, nothing.  The power signal light on the back is flashing green.  I followed some steps from this page Unplugging everything from the back and holding  the power button for 10 seconds didnt do anything.  Pushing for 1 second and waiting 10 seconds didn`t do anything.  I took off my side panel for the next steps, but didn`t want to touch anything as I don`t want to harm anything.  I`ve tried another outlet and the light keeps blinking green.  I haven`t had this computer for too long, maybe a couple years or less.  I take good care of it with good antiviruses and making sure to put it to sleep mode everynight, and keep it updated etc.  Looks like the power to the machine is okay since the light is flashing....  is it something internal? Wondering if anyone could help?   Feeling anxious.  Please and thank you!
