Memory module/processor?

Q: Memory module/processor?

Helloes mates, ive got the following problem thats been annoying me for the last couple days.

I just bought brand new computer parts and im trying to get them to work together.
Ive gotten to a point where motherboard displays an error "C1" continuously(this motherboard has a small led display that shows error messages). Even tried resettin CMOS, changing places of memory modules, only using one module etc. but i still can't get it to work.
Also the memory modules seem to generate alot of heat during that time that motherboard is stuck at C1 phase. I haven't had the balls to keep it going for more than 5 minutes since at that point memory modules heat build-up seems to be too much.

Motherboards manual says for C1 code that:
Detect memory
-Auto-detection of DRAM size, type and EEC
-Auto-detection of L2 cache (socket 7 or below)
Motherboard: Abit AB9 Pro Intel 965 LGA775 ATX
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 2,40Ghz, Socket 775, FSB 1066, 4MB Cache
Power: Nexus NX-4090 400W ATX
Video card: Club 3D 8600GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E DUAL-DVI TV
Memory: Corsair Twin2X 2x1GB DDR2 800Mhz kit

A: Memory module/processor?

POST error C1 indicates RAM refresh has failed.

Try the RAM in another bank or try a diff module. Check to make sure the banks are clear and free of obstructions.

what is the difference in ecc and non ecc memory sticks and does it make a difference which one you can use in a dell optiplex 200. also does it make a difference if it is 40ns or 45ns? currently i have just 256mb and want to upgrage to 512mb. so i guess i need to know what is the correct sticks to buy that work with my dell. the stick in it now is 40ns.

A:memory module

Most desktop don't use ECC (Error Correction Code) Memory. However, this is a link to Dell with what they have available for sale for an Optiplex GX 200 if that's what you have. It is ECC memory. I looked at, usually a good site to do a memory search and they didn't have anything listed, but suggested you might need "proprietary" memory.

Hi, i was just checking out a site that sells memory upgrades...

I noticed that theyre selling 1 GB laptop memory for hp (it doesnt mention two 512mb sticks).
Im using a compaq m2000 laptop, is it possible to just buy a single 1GB memory stick to place into one slot or would i have to buy 2 x512mb? how many bytes can each slot hold?


A:1GB memory module?

The max ram for that model laptop is 1GB so the safest most reliable way to go would be to purchase 2x 512MB. read this page from
Good website for memory, I use it all the time.

Dear Sirs,
I recently put together a system that consists of:

Motherboard - Soyo K7VTA VIA KT133 chipset 200 FSB
CPU - AMD Athlon Thunderbird 900 Mhz
Memory - 1 Micron 256 MB, PC133
Hard Drive - IBM 40 GB ATA 66 7200 RPM
OS - Windows 2000 SP 2
Video - Gigabyte Geoforce2 MX400 64MB

This system has been running fine and without incident until I recently purchased an addition memory module. The memory module is identified on the chips as, Siemens HYB39S256400T-8(B). It was advertised as 512 MB Unregistered, PC133. I installed the memory into the next available DIMM socket (3 onboard). When I rebooted the computer several things happened.

1.) The PC booted through BIOS where the memory was tested and recognized (786,432 total memory) them memory and began to load Windows and then suddenly rebooted. This occured over and over.
2.) After booting into BIOS setup (Memory was recognized in BIOS) I exited and when the machine rebooted I received a STOP error.
STOP error = The ACPI BIOS in this system is not fully compliant with the ACPI specification. 0x000000A5, 0X00000011, 0X00000007, 0XEB8680C0, 0X0100000C

I then removed the new memory module and the machine booted normally.

Can you please offer me some suggestions.

Thank You,
Kelly Rudnick

A:Memory Module from .........

What happens if you put just the new module in? Any problems (could be a bad module)? If not:
Do you know if the new memory is ECC or non-ECC? What about the original memory?
Also, do you know if the original memory is also unregistered/unbuffered as opposed to registered/buffered?
If they are of different types, they may not play well together.

Sorry I am dim, but I can't figure out if the memory I have will work with the mobo i have.

mobo: Asus A7V400-MX
(from the supoprt manual: supports up to 2GB unbuffered PC2700/PC2100/PC1600 non-ECC DDR SDRAM)

Memory: 1 x 512 DDR 400 PC3200 UDIMM made by elixir.

I know the 'PC' numbers don't match, but i was assured twice by the tech guy that the memory is backwards-compatible with the mobo specs.

Unfortunately I am having problems with the new mobo, which may be due to the new memory, I'm not sure!!

The full problem I'll describe if I get past this issue. Don't want to bore you with it all stright up at first.


A:Does this memory module fit this mobo?

Yes it should work. It will just run at most 2700 (333MHz) or slower
instead of 3200 (400MHz), depending on the CPU FSB and your settings.

When you try and boot it, it goes in circles trying to do the "Preparing Automatc Repair" but it always fails and says the PC did not start correctly. Upon hitting restart the process repeats. Ocassionally ading the step of diagnosing PC but nothing else happens.  I am unable to get passed the booting process. Any help or advice would be great!

A:A5F74AV Memory Module

You have a dv6t-7000 model and you have a bad memory module. This is a little fuzzy but watchable. See at 2:50 into the video how there are 2 modules. Try each module by itself in each slot and see if you can boot the machine and also run the test. That should isolate the bad memory module and all you would need to do is replace it. Will also diagnose if a slot is bad if modules work in one slot but neither works in the other slot.  Post back your fuindings and we can go from there.

Hi I have recently purchased inspiron 5567 laptop and I think I would need to add more RAM to it.
in India I don't find anywhere on the Dell official site, an option to purchase a memory module.
So I wanted to know from where I can purchase a compatible RAM for Inspiron 5567? (do I have to look for any specific brand for memory module?)
Is it okay to purchase from a local computer store or from online store like Amazon or Flipkart?
Secondly, do I have to take my laptop to the service center to replace the module or I can replace it at my home itself?
If I replace it at my own, will it affect my laptop's warranty?

A:Upgrading Memory Module

It'll take up to 2X8G DDR4-19200 modules; yes, you can purchase the memory and install it yourself (simply requires removing the base cover).
Disconnect the battery and unplug the system before upgrading.

The size of the module shouldn't matter as long as they are exactly the same specs. If you think the heap problem is caused by memory download and run memtestx86 for several hours at least.

You can also check in event viewer (type event vwr in search) for log entries. Go to windows logs>application tab (and system)and look for errors (red in the left hand colum) relating to the problem. When found note the event ID and source codes and relay them to us

I am trying to reformat a friends computer. It is a real mess, so I do not want to clean it out. But when I try to run the xp-setup, it gives me a bsod with different messages, all including setupdd.sys. I can boot normally, setup loads files, I am asked what I want to do, press enter to setup, accept license agreement. When it asks me where I want to set up windwos, partitions etc, it show 4 unknown devices with unknown size, no harddisk, no partitions, after that, whatever I do, a bsod.
I googled this up and it seems to have to do with bad ram. My computer shows all disks and partitions without problems, so I figure it is not a hardware problem, but malware, preventing me from formatting/re-installing windows xp.
The problem is, that all works fine, ram test is fine. I ran several antimalware tools and mbam gave me one time (not the first scan) an infected memory module with a win32 trojan. It said delete on reboot, I rebooted and reran the scan and now it says the same. Sorry, I did not include the log, but I am afraid to use my usb-stick to copy the log, after what I was on that PC, I became a little paranoid.
Malwarebytes, run in normal mode, quick scan, reports memory module infecten with trojan downloader, c:\wiindows\system32\wmimgr32.dll and the file c:\windows\system32\wmimgr32.dll.
When I run the scan in safemode, it does not detect a thing.

I ran also checkdisk, inclusive surface scan and it found some problems (as a result of file intection?). The problem still remains, I start windows setup, it still does not recognize any partitioned/unpartitioned space (I checked in my computer, 50 Gb partitioned and 100 Gb unpartitioned) and after any choice I make there (create, delete, setup) a bsod.

Hey there,
I checked to c what memory would b suitable for my laptop ( HP Compaq nx6110 ), and it seems i need DDR PC2700..
I was wondering if it matters if i use PC2700,2100 or some other ...
Does anyone know if my system would function with any of the other PC speeds?



A:Memory Module question

Usually, faster speeds are OK (it will just run at the motherboard speed or the speed of any other RAM module also installed, whichever is the slower)

But if you install slower RAM (2100) then all RAM, including any original module that may be faster will run at the slower speed.

I have not experienced issues using faster RAM, but very rarely timing issues may arise and it will fail to work. But it's rare.

Pretty sure you'll be good with 240 pin DDR2 modules. Best to install in pairs, so keep that in mind. While newegg isn't guaranteed to give you the best price, they've always been reliable wherever I am in the world when it comes to shipping. - Computer Hardware,Memory,Desktop Memory,240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM

Those are the modules for your board sorted by rating. I personally have Mushkin brand in my tower, but I'm not partial to any brand. Check out the reviews. Maybe someone else here has the same mobo as you and can offer some first hand experience on what you should get. Good luck.

Also for future reference

You can go there and find the proper ram size/timings and then use that info to do a search on newegg or your favorite shopping site.

I have a Dell Studio 1737 laptop, Runs Vista. Bought in 2009.
A month or more ago, the battery stopped working. I haven’t replaced it yet, because, 1. It went from working to not working very abruptly, and I’m not sure that’s how batteries die. 2. Checking online, I read it might be my BIOS. 3. I know someone who replaced her battery and it only worked for a week or so. So her computer must have another issue going on, maybe mine does too.  
The last 2 weeks, the laptop has been freezing at random times.
When it’s not freezing, it’s running great. I run virus and malware checks often. Paid Avast, free Malwarebytes, ADWcleaner, CCleaner, and I ran Windows Repair All in One.
I ran a diagnostic test at Dell, it found a critical hardware failure--my memory module isn’t working properly and should be replaced. My System Info says that my -- RAM is 4.00 GB, Total physical memory - 3.96 GB, Available physical memory - 2.58, Total virtual memory - 8.12 GB, Available virtual memory - 6.62 GB.
Question-could this memory module issue cause the battery issue and/or the random freezing?
I also attempted to update my BIOS at Dell, which was a recommended update. It wouldn’t allow me to complete the update, because there was no battery.
Any advice would be welcome.

A:Battery, BIOS or memory module?

Hello - Yes batteries can die abruptly.. normally you would see a decrease in how long it stays charged and then it would simply fail.  But it could be yours just decided to die.  Also your computer's freezing can be attributed to bad memory and if their memory tester found a problem you may indeed have failing memory, but I would try replacing the battery first ( just in case somehow the lack of battery is affecting the memory circuit. (unlikely but possible).

Hello everyone: A few weeks ago I pushed the button to start my PC. It started with its usual routine but then stopped booting up and just started beeping at me. After several attempts at forcing it to shut down then starting it again only to have it beep at me I just left it off and used the laptop to do some research about the beeping. Seems it had to do with a memory problem which I managed to locate by removing the memory modules one at a time and replacing them in the same location they came from. I managed to isolate one module that when installed, caused the machine to beep and boot no further, and when removed, the machine booted up o.k. although it was a bit sluggish and acted like it wasn't to sure about what it was supposed to do with itself. It just so happened that it was in an end socket and when I removed a module from the opposite end and placed it in the suspect socket, the beeping started again, so I put that module back in it's place at the other end and left the other socket empty. I'm actually using the PC in question to make this post, it seems to run satisfactorily without the one module in place, but at times seems to loose its bearings.

A:Memory Module or System Board?


Since the beeping starts when using a known good module in the "suspect" slot it

would seem to indicate a problem with the slot.

You can try testing using one working module in all slots to make sure that the issue is the slot.

If the slot is determined to be defective the board would have to be replaced.

This can be an issue with OEM unless the board is replaced with the same board.

There is no reason to remove an AGP card if you are adding more memory. Unless the AGP card physically blocks the RAM slot (not allowing you to put the RAM in), you need not worry about the AGP card.

I know you're not supposed to mix memory modules, but I have an extra 256 mg module that's a different brand from the modules now in my system. My mb (ASUS) manual says "For dual channel configuration the total size of memory modules installed per channel must be the same for better performance" which I have now w/the 2 512 mg modules installed (Patriot). It also says "Always install modules w/the same CAS latency".

My questions:

1) Could installing the 256 mg module actually weaken performance of the "dual channel configuration"?

2) If it is a different CAS latency, could it harm the mb or other memory modules in any way?

I figure if it doesn't work, the system just won't boot and I'll remove the extra module. But if it does boot, I want to be sure no harm is done to the mb, the other modules, and that it won't actually degrade the dual channel performance of the other 2 modules.

Thanks much,

I've posted this already but I was wondering if there was anyone else had an opinion on this.
I have a Dell Dimension 4550 which currently has 512mb of RAM on board.
I want to add another 512 module.
The Owners Manual states that I should remove the AGP CARD before adding a new module. It doesn't say that I should replace it when the new memory is inserted.
Can anyone tell me what is the function of the AGP card and if it is necessary to remove it before adding the new memory module?

A:Is it necessary to remove AGP CARD before adding memory module?

The AGP card would be your video card, you'd definitely want to put that back in or your computer won't work. Normally you don't remove the video card to install more memory.

The only reason I see for doing that, since its not a normal procedure, is that the card may be in the way of the latches on the side of the memory slots.

I have the small Inspiron 3250 Desktop.  Processor information:  Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6400 CPU @ 2.70GHz (CPU:0).  Memory type:  DDR3 (1600 MHz).
I want to add another 8gb memory module.  I have asked Dell representative 5 times about which module to order.  I have received 4 different recommendations and one "your PC can't be upgraded).  I do know that my PC has two slots for memory and is only using 1 8gb module so I know it can be upgraded.  I just don't know which module is best suited for my PC.
Any suggestions??  Thanks in advance

A:Inspiron 3250 Small Desktop Memory Module

Have you called Dell Spare Parts directly (totally separate from Dell tech support) and given them that part number?
You can look at They have 2x8GB RAM for this system model for ~$94. The good thing about Crucial is they guarantee it works in whichever system they recommended it for or they take it back. Many people around this forum buy from Crucial.
But do yourself a favor. Start at Crucial's home page and work through their product finder on the left side so you know you looking at RAM for your system. Don't just rely on the link I posted, because -after all- it is your money.  
You will have to click the "Show more" button when you get to the page for your model to see the 8 GB modules.
And I guess you could sell the Hynix module on eBay etc to recover some of the cost of a new pair...

Please help.
Does anyone have a *photo or physical description* on the original 128 Meg module that went in the the 3440CT.

I know the part number and specification I'm specifically trying to identify if the one in my 3440CT is a Toshiba part and therefore under the 10year guarantee. Its faulty.

Paper Label Printed with:-

* square "3d" bar code
* 128MB PC-133
* MTGA83S-86KI3
* S/N:S36000801096

The chips are KTI

it has 4 chips on each side and is a Micro Dimm 144 pin.
Printed on board is T3-0196 REV:1.0

I hope this link works. This is one on Ebay in Poland

A:Portege 3440CT: What is a orginal memory module spec


Portege 3440 supports 64Mb of internal memory and this memory cannot be removed.
So only one slot is available.

As far as I know Toshiba recommends using these modules for an upgrade:

*SDRAM 64MB (PA3033U-1M06)*
*SDRAM 128MB (PA3034U-1M12)*

I think you could google for these single numbers and you should get a photo or all needed details about these modules?

I have a Dell Inspiron 5521 Laptop having 4 GB RAM. I am planning to add additional 8GB RAM.
So, the Total RAM would be 4+8= 12 GB.

I found the following information in Dell Specifications User Guide:

Inspiron 5521 Two internally-accessible DDR3 SODIMM connectors
Inspiron 5537 Two internally-accessible DDR3L SODIMM connectors
Capacity Up to 16 GB
Inspiron 5521 Dual channel DDR3
Inspiron 5537 Dual channel DDR3L
Speed Up to 1600 MHz
Configurations supported 2 GB, 4 GB, 6 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB

I found the following Memory Module information by running Command on my Laptop: 
Total Width: 64 bits

Data Width: 64 bits

Size: 4096 MB

Form Factor: SODIMM

Set: None

Locator: JDIMM2

Bank Locator: Not Specified

Type: DDR3

Type Detail: Synchronous

Speed: 1600 MHz

Question 1: Is it possible to add 4+8= 12GB configuration in this Laptop?
Question 2: Should i use DDR3 instead of DDR3L RAM in this Laptop?
Question 3: Which RAM is best supported with this Laptop, Kingston or CORSAIR Vengeance?

Note: I am using Ubuntu on this Machine.

A:Dell Inspiron 5521 | RAM Upgrade | Memory Module

1. Yes, albeit at a performance penalty.  It's designed for a pair of matched modules.
2.  Either will work by itself.  Don't mix DDR3 and DDR3L though -- if you have DDR3, use that; if L, use that if you're adding a module.
3.  Crucial is hard to beat particularly given its compatibility guarantee when purchased through its memory configurator.  Anything else- ask the vendor about compatibility guarantees (or be sure you understand the possible restocking charge if a return is required).

Good day to all. Can someone please assist me, advance thanks..

I bought a PC with MSI mainboard, N430GT, with 2-2GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/2G installed RAM (=4GB), 500GB HDD.
Everything works smooth until I read that I could upgrade memory up to 16GB max. BTW my OS is Win7 64 Ultimate.

So I decided first to buy and install 2pcs-4GB Kingston KVR1333D3N9/4G (=8GB), for a few days everything works fine as expected, I shut it down one night and the following day restarting my PC, it turned BLUE with messages., and then on as often as every 5 minutes or less it turns BSOD.

I asked my friends and told me to do a clean OS reinstallation and I did that, but the problem persisted as if nothing changed.

So I did a memory diagnostic and It noted that possible hardware problem.

I did immediately changed and swap back my original 2pcs-2GB memory, and surprisingly until this thread writing it is ok.

My mainboard supports dual channel (two slots only) and I want to know how could I checked which one of the two 4GB memory modules is not working, or is it safe to install only one 4GB memory to checked which of the two is working or both are not working?

Any immediate response is of great help. thanks.

A:BSOD after upgrading &/or installing new memory module on brand new PC

The Kingston Value Ram (KVR) is known to be marginal and not even work in some PC's. The regular Kingston memory is usually OK but none of the techies that I know will use or recommend the KVR.

Check the MSI (or whoever the motherboard vendor is) site for your motherboard model (you didn't list it so I can't check for your). The N430GT is your video card, not the motherboard. Most motherboard vendors list compatible memory for their motherboards. Best to use memory that has been certified for the specific motherboard.

The laptop only registers 128MB, so I think one of the sockets may be faulty.

I have upgraded one of my old computers from 512MB RAM to 1GB by buying another PC3200 DDR400 512MB module. Upon booting Windows XP after the installation of RAM, BSODs with various errors show up (sometimes before loading to the desktop, sometimes after the desktop has loaded). Some of the errors include: IRQL LESS THAN EQUAL error, and another error that has the word 'Page' in it (I forgot if it is Page fault or Page file).

I have traced this down to the BIOS Memory settings. Before the upgrade, I have set other settings to the optimal setting that the BIOS can allow me, by reading this guide: , without any problems. Upon upgrading, setting the DRAM Command Rate to 2T will prevent the BSODs (before the installation of the new module, this setting was set to 1T and my system worked fine without any BSODs).

I am wondering if there is another way I can get my system to work while still setting the DRAM Command Rate to 1T. As I have seen from various websites like this one: ( , there is a performance increase if the DRAM Command Rate is set to 1T. I also would like to know if the performance gain is not that significant and if it is better if I just leave it at 2T?

A:DRAM Command Rate BIOS setting Problem with Installation of New Memory Module

Put the slower one into Slot 1 - that ought to ensure it runs at that speed, not the faster sticks timings..

You could try resetting it to 1T if that proves stable. A slight bump in Ram Voltage probably wouldn't hurt - if your board has that Facility in the BIOS.

A quick way to test stablility is to run a 2m SuperPi - it's not foolproof, but if it passes, you know you're on the right track. If you get errors, it's still suss, and you might want to run a MemTest on each stick individually - although it's new, it may still be faulty!

I have an Asus M2N32 SLI Deluxe mb, an Athlon 64 X2 5000+ processor, an OCZ 700W PSU, 4GB RAM, and an Nvidia 8800 GTX 768MB video card. The system is 1-1/2 years old. Recently I've experienced getting no video upon reboot, so I disconnect the cable from the video card until I see that the computer is ready for log in, then reconnect the cable, and I get high resolution video (even in safe mode). The computer worked beautifully for 18 months. Now, if I try to install the video drivers, I get an error message saying that Nvidia can't locate the drivers for my hardware, and quits. I got the video drivers to install in safe mode, but then when I boot up, the resolution changes to 8 bit color, and 640X480 max. As soon as I uninstall the video drivers, the resolution changes back to 32 bit color, and 1280X1024. I've RMA'd the MB, the video card...tried to put a different video card in, tried both PCIe slots, and so far no luck. I even bought another MB (same type). No tech support has been able to diagnose this. I'm also noticing that when I boot up now, I get the usual single beep followed by 4 quick ones. I'm really frustrated, and don't want to keep shelling out money for equipment that's not old enough to replace!

Thanks for any input!

A:MB, processor, memory, or PSU?

The only thing I can think of that might be problematic is running all 4 gig of RAM (if its a 32 bit system). Have you tested the memory and have you tried setting the whole system up on just 2? Using all 4 sets up the potential for conflict between RAM and reserved video address space if all is not right.

Hey all, I'm new around here, and I joined because I have bad computer trouble, and maybe someone could identify my problem. The other day, I opened up my computer to put a stick of 512 Mb DDR Ram into it, and i found two 128 Mb DDR sticks already in there. So I took one of the 128 Mb Chips out, and put the 512 Mb in, mixing them up with each other. Anyways, when I turned on my computer to boot it up, it made a bunch of wierd noises, like beeps, so I turned it off fairly fast. I took out the 512 Mb and put back in the old 128 Mb stick. Now whenever I push the button for my computer to come on, It will only make a long beep, pause for a second, then keep making the beeps, over and over again, the screen does not light, the LED stays orange. If anyone could help, anything is appreciated, Thanks.

A:Installing new memory module (One for all you "Experts")

Take out all the sticks of ram, and then out in the 128 and 512. Be sure to take all of them out first though, and they are pushed ALL the way down, it requires some force.

What I do is, line up the RAM with the slot, then just push down hard on the ram until the clips at the side automatically come up and clip the ram into place

I ran Malwarebytes several times and always get two infections. One is Trojan.TDSS with the Catagory: Memory Module and Items: \\?\globalroot\systemroot\system32\SKYNETnpoysrwi.dll. The other is Trojan.TDSS with the Catagory: File and Items: \\?\globalroot\systemroot\system32\SKYNETnpoysrwi.dll. I make sure they are checked, remove them, restart as prompted, rescan and get the same result. I have repeated this process several times. I tried another method from another site of getting rid of these by disabling the driver in the device manager and running "Avenger" to delete the driver and then I believe reinstall it. It is currently still disabled and the icon has an exclamation on it. I hope this helps you. Thanks.

I went into event viewer to see if there was any ACPI error's listed and this came up.

The exact Error that's provided via Event Viewer: Collaborative processor power controls on processor 5 in group 0 are disabled due to a firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware. This message is provided for each of my Processor Cores

Unfortunately, there are no new Firmware Updates for my laptop model from Asus. Last one was pushed in October 2014. Very odd seeing as i got this new in December 2014.

I want to know if this is something serious, or if i should just ignore it. An error having to due with Kernel Level Power Controls seems serious to me.

I recently upgraded to a HP,Media Center editon pc, Windows XP, AMD Athlon 64 3800+2.4 GHz Processor.

When trying to install Photoshop Album 1.0, I receive this message, "This operating system is not supported by Adobe Photoshop Album. We support Windows 98SE, ME, 2000 , XP Intel Pentium III or 4 processor".

Could my problem with installation be the Athlon processor? When purchasing this computer, our salesman convinced us that the Athlon was just as good as the Pentinum Processor. Any thoughts on this? My computer is less than a week old and having serious thoughts about returning it. I have had problems with other installations. Am I to expect more problems with software and the Athlon processor. Any helpful suggestions will be appreciated. I am getting desperate for advice about the processor.

A:Athlon Processor versus Pentinum Processor in Windows XP

What the message is telling you is that Windows Media Center Edition 2005 is not one of the operating systems that Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 supports. It has nothing to do with whether an Intel processor or an AMD processor is installed. I checked the system requirements for the newer version 2.0, and it also is not supported by Windows MCE 2005.

By the way, Adobe Photoshop Album 1.0 has a 13.5 MB patch for it and will upgrade it to version 1.0.1. You can get it from here.

I need to order a new desktop for my office to replace a 3 year old machine that runs at 3.2 Ghz. The new machines that Dell offers only has this option:

Intel® Core™2 Extreme QX6700 (8MB L2 Cache,2.66GHz,1066 FSB)

I don't think there is a standard measuring stick that is used to compare all the processor speeds that I can find or understand. I work with CAD programs that use up a lot of resources and I typically get the fastest available and max the RAM. With all the latest software that I have to install, I need the new machines to run faster than the ones they replace.

Can anyone tell me how this 2.66GHz processor compares to my current machine? I don't have the exact specs for it, this is what it lists on the dell support site for my system - PROCESSOR, 80532K, 3.2GHZ, 1M, 533, M0.

Quad processors are darn expensive. You can have a hand in helping me build my new laptop.

Speed is a priority: when I use my computer for PLEASURE, I can deal with an occasional slowdown. When I use my computer for a WORK or a SCHOOL project and I experience a slowdown, I feel like breaking bodies or punching a hole in the wall.

I'm buying a new laptop. I'll be using it primarily for work and school. I'd say 80% of the time that I use the laptop it will be used for serious 9-5 business stuff, primarily work and school.

That's why when I customize my new laptop I'm going to customize it with 8 gigs of RAM and a quad core processor, to have as much speed as possible and as high a flow rate as possible. Is that a good build strategy?

My work/school laptop will:

>be used for heavy Internet duty

>be used heavily for programs like Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Flash

>i will not be using it for computer games but note: if i have to sell the laptop on Craigslist in a year or two I'd like this laptop to appeal to gamers so I can sell it quicker, faster

>i don't have a lot of disposable income. The quad processor costs a few hundred dollars more. Since I'll be using my computer for work and school, and since I might be making more money a year from now, If I have to (and with your advice) I'll pay the extra cost

In a word nothing, the centrino branding does not refer to any specific additions to the processor, it is simply a label that is attached to laptops which use intel branded processor, integrated graphics and wireless chips.

Centrino is more of a marketing tool that Intel use to boost sales of their graphics and wireless chips, so you can pretty much ignore it

Hello everyone,

I want to build a new system, and I was wondering just what the differences between a sever processor and a desktop processor are.

Would I see gaming performance decrease by using a Quad Server Core or a Quad Desktop Core?

I wanted to build a dual socket server core and have 8 physical cores.


A:Server Processor Vs. Desktop Processor

I dont think any games are designed to take advantage of a dual socket setup. Windows Server OS's are designed to take advantage of dual socket setups. Some newer games are coming out which take advantage of single socket dual or quad core setups on desktops. A server based PC would not gain any performance for games IMO. You are better off investing the extra $ in a good video card.

Hello Everyone,

I have recently purchased Easy Media Creator 7.0 to download some files on a CD disk. I have a Dell 4100 Inspiron Notebook, XP home edition windows system.

I installed the easy media Creator 7.0 on my notebook. I used the "copy files to disc. " I dropped all the files down in the loading area and then , put in a CD-R disc in the disc holder re: the 24XCD-Rom Module, and Hit "Burn". There is a sign that come up " no recorder".

I couldn't get it to record and burn any of my files. So I thought I had the wrong CD. So I purchased a CD-RW and inserted it into the D Drive (re: CD-Rom Module) in my notebook and I still got the sign, "no recorder". The "No recorder" shows up on the little Icon of the drop and drag thing that is setting on the desktop.

I looked under the Media Manager and also the Disc Copier re: under the "Selecting the destination". I notice when I tried to burn the CD, there was no destination printed on it. I went back under the disc copier window and tried to enter in the "recorder" information under the Destination area but it wouldn't let me enter in any information here. It was a gray area and no where to input the info.

I am totally confused!!

I have a 4 year old HP Laptop. This summer the dreaded blue screen came on briefly and then the computer went blank. Screen was on but no icons. Shut off computer it would not come back on. Just the screen, no icon. Took it for repair and the tech took out one of my 256 Ram modules. He said it was bad and suggested I return it back to Kahlon co. I had it in for two years with no problems. I returned it to Kahlon with explanation and have not heard from them. That was in September. Called a few times and could only get promises. Module had lifetime warranty. Still waiting. Ordered new 256 RAM Module from OEM. Put it in slot and the same thing happened. E-mailed OEM for suggestions. The Rep. said to remove RAM Module that came with computer and put in new Module. I did and the computer works fine, but only on 256 RAM. Took a chance and put old Module in the other slot and bingo computer goes off. My question is: Can the slot be bad or is it a BIOS setting or what? Also, how do I rectify the situation without purchasing a new Laptop. Hate to do it, but thought I would ask first.
Also, cannot recommend dealings with Kahlon. I need the speed of 512RAM for my photography.

Hi peeps, merry xmas to you all ;p

I just installed 2 strips of DDR2, the exact make my Asus MB requires as the old ram that was in it was different speeds.

Originally it had 1.5gig so i repleced the 2 strips for 2x1gig strips of matcjing everything.

So switched PC on and now windows tells me i onlyhave 1 gig installed !

Cpuz tells me both are there and tells me the exact info that is required but windows only tells me i have 1 gig now when it said i had 1.5gig with miass matched ram ??

Puter seems smoother so my question is, :-

Is W7 32bit using 2gig or is it not ?

Why cant thing just work lol lol lol also on the ram it states it is PC2-4200 DDR2 Memory RAM DDR2-533 533MHz but if you check the cpuz file it states different .

Dont know what to do now. is the ram faulty ? miss labeld ? or what ?

Thanks for any ideas.

Here is the cpuz file.

A:Win 7 can't see one module of RAM

Ok hold the horses lol I took the slots out and swapped them round and proper made sure they were in, so now W7 tells me i have 2gig yey but cpuz still telss me they are PC2-5300 (333 MHz) and not PC2-4200 (533MHz) as the label says on the moduels.

Is Cpuz right or are the stick right ? i bought these off ebay from a reputable dealer so if there is an issue i need to resolve it cos if i paid for 533MHz and i only got 333MHz then i need a refund os some sort dont i ?

I purchased a KINGMAX 512MB PC133 chip from newegg. When I put the chip in along with the 128 chip. It starts to boot and then I get the following blue screen of death message:
