Lenovo bought the IBM hardware business, basically. It's been several years now. They were manufacturing for IBM for a while, now they should be designing and manufacturing for themselves.

So I "upgraded" to windows 10 when they offered it for free a year ago it was nice at best but i didn't liked it so i went back to my old OS which i wins. 7 but after a month after doing so i started to get BSOD at first it was just hang ups then the BSOD. Since i Have a Lenovo with onekey recovery 7.0, I tried to use it but it only boots back into windows and not to the recovery environment. So i did a bit of looking around and found out windows 10 doesn't like Lenovo's OKR function too much. I made a recovery disc but saw I needed the product key if i wanted to reinstall my windows but the windows sticker under my laptop is worn out, I was wondering if speccy is shows the windows product key? Or, is there a way to fix the onerecovery function?
 
thank you in advance

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T440s that has two 15GB SSDs installed, along with a 1TB hard disk. The system came with one SSD that supposedly was used to speed up the boot process. Some months back the drive started showing up as just another disk on the system. I have no idea if its currently speeding up the boot process or not.

I've obtained a second SSD that fits in the M.2 spot on the mobo so I installed that too. I could install a wireless WAN in the M.2 spot and might later, but right now I have the SSD.

Long intro - here are the questions
1. How can I determine if the original SSD is still being used to speed up the boot process?
2. How can I take the best advantage of this second, small SSD?

Thanks for your help, group.

I just bought a Lenovo Ideapad Z570. It has two options for the battery charging. One is it charges the battery 100%. The other it only charges 50% and supposedly if you don't use your battery very often, it will extend the life of it. I don't use the battery very often, but would like to keep it charged 100% in case I need to use it. I would like to get an idea if the 50% option really saves that much on the battery. Any help is appreciated. Thanks,

Hello,

I recently have gotten a lenovo h50-50 and according to my dxdiag, it says the system model is 90B7005CUS.

Specs:

CPU: Core i3 4160 3.60GHz
Ram: 8GB
HDD: 1TB
OS: Windows 7 Professional that I custom installed
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4400


So my questions is that my model's psu, how many watts is it?

I see this page: http://psref.lenovo.com/PSREFUploadF...50%20Tower.pdf


but I'm confused because it says "some" on all of them.

Thanks in advance.

A:Lenovo H50-50 Hardware question

Best way to be sure about that is to pull the side off, there will be a label on the PSU with that info.

Either way, they sure didn't over power them. Be glad you didn't get one of the AMD versions,

Hello! I just bought a Lenovo Y50 laptop and it came with Realtek RTL8188EU Wireless USB 2.0. It's really supposed to come with this wireless card? And it makes my right side 2.0 usb not functional, since if I put something there my wifi disables.  So guys, it's real or I just got scammed? If anyone could send me link to this model's specification that says it's not supposed to come with this thing, please, I would love!It's the 80EJ model! Thank you! <3

A:Lenovo Y50-70 Temperature question

Hi Agentaltair47 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
To best answer your query allow me to quote from one of the threads about temperature with regards to performance thru rockykoston. 
 
"CPU temps for gaming are fine as long as they are below 90 celsius.
 
My CPU temps are between
73-79 for Fallout New Vegas (currently playing) - 79 max
80-85 for Dragon Age Inquisition - 85 max
75-80 for Shadow of Mordor
mostly all other games the CPU stays in the range of 70-75. Inquistion is the most graphics intensive game I am playing.
 
GPU temps are usually between 75-85 depending on the game.
 
My ambient temps are higher right now (28-30), resulting in these temps.
 
In short, your temps are perfectly normal. "
 
********** from a similar post 
 
Ideally running the pc on minimum applications like clean boot when playing would help and likewise assuring that there is no running 3rd party application that can contribute to additional processes like malwares/ virus .
 
Ensure that the vents and filters are clean and not obtructed and if you feel a need for additional accessory to keep it cool.
 
But if you feel unusually warm on anyspot specially those that gets unnaturally warm , don't hesitate to call in tech support for further recommendation .
 
Hope this answered your query .
Update us for any other concerns if needed.
 
 
Regards

Hi there Lenovo community! I recently bought the 15-inch edition of the Y700 from Best Buy. I don't have it in my possession yet, but I'm already beginning to look for extra accessories and upgrades. For starters, it only comes with a 1TB HDD, and I wanted to get a SMALL M.2 SSD for the boot drive, just to get that extra burst of speed. Again, I don't need it to be big (especially since I'm trying to save money), so it can be below 100GB. So I just need to know exactly what M.2 model is compatible with this unit. Also, this model (80NW000PUS) apparently only comes with 8GB of RAM...is 16GB necessary or am I fine with only 8?  Hope to see some responses soon, thanks!  

A:Lenovo Y700 (15 Inch) M.2 SSD Question

Hi Prince_AKR , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Similar to your query here in this discussion as fellow member also plans upgrade for additional SSD .
 
" Standard Memory ? DDR4-2133 MHz, SODIMM × 2 (max 16 GB)
Hard disk drive  ? SSD, NGFF, 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB
So to answer your question, a 16GB RAM and 128GB is doable on this machine." 
 
Further details as follows on the post.
 
8 GB is considered a sweet spot for basic to moderate computing need and 16GB would be useful for those using a lot of virtual application/ os and a lot of browser page all open at the same time. The FRU listing on your hardware manual would provide lenovo part numbers used on the model but do not limit users of their choices. 
 
Hope this help answer your query for a good planned upgrade.

Hi, i'm about to buy  pc and i found a lenovo m83 with pentium hasswell witch i like, but i also have a question regarding sistem ram On the official lenovo product page, it says that this lenovo m83 comes with udimm ram modules, so my question is if i can put "normal" ddr3 dimm memory or it only works with udimm ones? If so, it's bad, because udimm ram is kind of expansive in my country (double/triple when compared with normal ddr3 ones). The internet didin't really answered my question, so i hope that some m83 owner faced the same question and found an answer to it.Some internet users said that CL9 DDR3 ram should work with the sistem (not with udimm ram, sadly ), but if someone has an answer based in previous experience with lenovo pc's or similar/the same product i'll be grateful This sistem fits my today needs ( my pc kind of broke, and i was overdue for an upgrade anyway), but in time i want to change my psu, add a graphic card and put more ram (it only comes with 4 gigs). Regarding the video card and psu lenovo forums provided me with solutions already (other users faced the same problems and those discussions had solution), and now i only have the ram uncertainty. Thank you for your time and i appreciate your answers. I'll upload some pictures of the particular model, so it will be easily recognized by you Also, this is the official lenovo link:http://www.lenovo.com/shop/emea/content/pdf/ThinkCentre/MSeries/2013/M83_DS_EN.pdf

This is a quick question. I purchased a Lenovo laptop a few years ago with Windows 8 pre-installed.. it didn't work with any of my peripherals so I ended up doing a clean install of Windows 7... Am I right in assuming this would eliminate any Superfish issues with my computer? This is of course assuming that it was even installed on my Lenovo in the first place.

Thanks!

Hi  I am thinking of purchasing a 13" Lenovo ideapad 710s ($1199 model) over a MacBook air. I have been using a macbook air for several years and recently thought of getting a new laptop. Lenovo's 710s seems to be quite good on paper (except the battery life), but I couldnt find any reviews online which can tell me if the laptop is as good as Lenovo projects it to be. If anyone has bought/used Lenovo 710s, can  you guys chime in and let me know if this laptop came on par with your expectations (esp. the battery life)? Thanks

So I'm planning on buying this model: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-15ISK, but the one I'm looking to buy doesn't have an SSD and doesn't specify which ports are still available, only that it has a 1TB HDD. So I wanted to ask: 1. Does it have a free M.2 port? all models of the Y700-15ISK should have them, or am I wrong? 2. Which type of M.2 SSD does it support? M or B+M? I already sent the same questions to the retailer, but I am still waiting for an answer so thought I'd ask here as well.

Hi, I have also posted this in Lenovo's forum, but perhaps someone here have a solution as well. Recently my HDD crashed, so I plugged in a new HDD with a fresh Windows 7 Professional 64bit. I am trying to install the driver for my ATI HD 5730. I downloaded the driver from the Lenovo support page, installed it, and it installed sucessfully. I clicked "view log", all successful;I went to the device manager, it recognized the HD 5730 as well as the Intel Graphic. CCC is in the context manual of the desktop, but it doesn't open. However, the resolution of the screen remains at 1024 x 768. When I restart the computer, it says something along the line of "No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning." I tried to uninstall it, from program files, then cleaned the rest with Driver Sweeper, and then cleaned registry with Glary Uitility. Reinstalled, and same result. I even tried to uninstall all display drivers, and let Windows find the "new" hardware. Windows recognized and install the driver for the Intel Graphic, but failed to install anything for the 5730. I searched the web and I can't seem to find a solution that works. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

All,
I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M57 6072-AUF running Windows 7 64 bit. I got it for a song at a computer recycle center? It was originally a govt of Quebec system and the BIOS is in French. I want to flash the BIOS to update it and to also convert it to English. I went to the Lenovo site and burned the correct BIOS .iso to a disk. The old BIOS version is ?LENOVO 2RKT38AFR, 2/15/2008? the new version / .iso is ?2rj964a.iso?. However, there is no executable and even though I was able to stumble my way through the French BIOS set up and change the boot sequence to CD/DVD first, it will not boot on start up. The flash from within Windows BIOS version on the Lenovo site is an executable, but only supports a 32 bit OS. Is there a separate flash utility that I can use that will allow me to drive the new BIOS flash from inside Windows 7 64 bit? Basic steps would be good, I could never be accused of being a technical all-star. Thanks

Hi Welcome to Seven Forums .. There is no executable for the 64 Bit OS .. Try tapping F1 or F2 at start up .. That should give you bootable Options ..

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
Specs:
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
RAM: 8 GB
HD: 750 GB
BIOS: 45CN36WW
 
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
 
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.

Hello everyone, Since about five days ago, everytime I turn on my laptop, it starts normally. It goes into the black-background lenovo startup with a white loading symbol. Then, after maybe 5 rotations of the dots in the loading symbol, it freezes. It does not progress into starting up. At this point, I usually turn off my laptop by holding the power button. If I don't turn it off myself, it turns off automatically a few minutes later.  Every 2 or 3 times I turn on my computer, instead of the loading symbol, it turns into a "Preparing Automatic Repair" mode. I have seen the loading symbol for this mode but then it disappears and nothing happens and it turns off automatically after ten minutes or so. I've seen the same solution that help others with the same problem which is to take out the DVD from the laptop. I did this and my problem has not changed.  edit: g500 to g505

Hi,
I have 2 lonovo laptops, R50e running on windowsXP, and Z460 running on windows7.

The screen of R50e is spoilt but I have some personal datas inside the harddisk.

If I take out the harddisk from R50e and put it in Z460, are there any problems, do I need to do some setup after putting in the harddisk from R50e to Z460.

Thanks
 

A:can I swop harddisk from lenovo r50e to lenovo Z460

Yes, you do need to do a repair install.
On the very first boot with the new disk you should boot from the install CD/DVD and do a repair install.
This is assuming that you want to be able to use the XP.
If all you want to do is get at the data then you could use it in an external caddy from Windows 7

My g580 ran out of battery while using it, and now it gets stuck on the lenovo logo. I tried a different hard drive which changed nothing, I've tested both hard drives on a different computer and they both work. However when I boot the laptop with no harddrive it will get past the logo go to a screen saying something about an unplugged cable then reset and get stuck on a blank screen.   If I plug in my windows recovery usb drive( and no harddrive) the the machine will boot normally and go to the windows installation screen. So any ideas on why a working harddrive would stop the system from booting? Also I've tried the whole taking out the battery unplugging it holding down the power key and then plugging it back in thing, did nothing.

If I don't turn it off myself, it turns off automatically a few minutes later.  Every 2 or 3 times I turn on my computer, instead of the loading symbol, it turns into a "Preparing Automatic Repair" mode. I have seen the loading symbol for this mode but then it disappears and nothing happens and it turns off automatically after ten minutes or so. I've seen the same solution that help others with the same problem which is to take out the DVD from the laptop. I did this and my problem has not changed.  edit: g500 to g505

The first thing I look at if a machine hangs at startup is the USB ports.  Physical damage can create shorts which cause these symptoms.  Check for bent pins or a tongue broken off.

New low in customer service. Had a Lenovo tech here to do a warranty replacement of the display on my laptop and he left it in much worse shape than he found it and gave us a scare as an added bonus. He was yelling and clearly kicking things around out of frustration several times while he was here and then just left. I had debated asking him to leave but was honestly afraid to engage him, but having him just leave was really odd. Called the cops to be sure it was documented and to see if there was anything else we should do. And while that was all odd enough, then I called Lenovo to see what they would do to sort this out and all they can do is escalate me for a call from a supervisor in 2-3 business days.  Got an email yesterday saying they would get back to me in one business day and then tonight got this gem from escalated support: Subject: 02554745 [ ref:_00D30V2Wu._5001412BHaF:ref ] Hello Mr FreemanThis is regarding your Lenovo computer and the recent onsite service for your unit.

Please advise if your machine is still inoperable.Thank youRosemaryLenovo Case Managerref:_00D30V2Wu._5001412BHaF:ref***They seem to be missing the fact that the tech broke the machine and was so creepy we called the cops.

Okay, so my Lenovo N580 IdeaPad with i3 processor is stuck at the splash screen, aka the black screen with Lenovo written on it in bold white letters. I tried removing the battery, then putting it back on, then pressing power button for 45 secs. I also tried pressing the the Novo button (the small round and black button besides the power button) but the screen shows no change and does not go to bios/reset menu on pressing f9/f12 too. What else can I do to get my laptop back on? Please help, all my project work is on my laptop

Lenovo Gen 4(20FC) Carbon loses audio after Lenovo System Update We have several of the Gen 4 X1 Carbons here at work and they work fine until Lenovo system updates gets run. We have had 4 people run the system updates and now the system has no audio. If you click the audio icon in the try, windows begins diagnosing the system. If you try to install a different driver, it fails with code 1. No matter if you uninstall, reinstall, different versions of the driver....nothing seems to restore the audio. I finally did a system restore to before lenovo system update was run and the audio returned to working. It seems to be a software problem but I would really like to know if there is some way to get it working without having to restore every time someone runs lenovo system update.

Hi Azadkv,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not booting to Windows and hanging at Lenovo Logo and the issue persists even after performing Flee-Power step. Hence, I suggest to perform BIOS reset and check if the issue persists. Below are the steps to perform BIOS reset:
 

To access BIOS menu turn OFF the Laptop and press the NOVO button located beside power button.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer will automatically restart.

Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hello, I have a new T530 with Windows 8 OS. I am having trouble using the integrated camera. It functions neither in the Windows camera app nor in Skype. In both cases I get a picture with a gray background and a camera with a line through it. In Device manager, the camera does appear, is enabled, and the drivers are up to date.After looking through other threads, I tried checking whether the camera was plugged in and indeed it was. When using Skype and I set the camera to on (Skype did detect the camera), I still got the gray no camera image, but the green light on the camera itself turned on.I also tried using Fn+F6 to check settings. Lenovo settings opens, but the when I click the camera settings Icon, the screen loads a blank page that says "Camera" in the top right and has a back button (left pointing arrow) in the top left hand corner. The back button does not seem to work and I must change the window to something else in order to exit/close settings.I tried manually installing both camera drivers and "power management" ("energy management"?) drivers. Neither of this solved either of these issues.Please help me to resolve this problem. Thank you.

Using Windows 10 version 1511 and all updates.  Used the Lenovo System Update and everything has been updated.  I wanted to turn on the built-in camera on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530, the F5 key, and it came up with a message saying, "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings Program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work. Even the Lenovo System Update program has it and I also downloaded it.  I restarted the laptop again and it still doesn't work. I then went to install the Lenovo Settings App on the Windows store and it doesn't look like the right one plus it still didn't work. My other problem is with the Lenovo Companion App from the Windows Store.  It worked before but now it ask to "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation."  I have installed the Lenovo System Interface Driver multiple times and it still popped up that message.  Yes, I have restarted the laptop and Companion.   Is there a reason why these issues are happening and how to fix it?  Thank you in advance.

Right, you mentioned it turned blue with a sad face, that is a Blue Screen of Death (or proper term is Kernel bugcheck) which indicates something has gone wrong.

The one I put in had NERO with it and I like NERO anyway however I would like to know for future purposes.

Why when you go to mycomputer and right click on the E drive (the burner) don't you have the recording tab and the rest like XP. I like doing it that way in XP where you can move all files or copy files and then go to the burner and say write these files to cd.

Does windows 98 or 98SE have this and I am just missing it or is a burning program like NERO or another the only way to use the burning in 98 or 98SE?

Thanks for the help

lol, you answered your own question, windows 95,98,98se,and ME don't support cd burning, except with 3rd party software. When you purchase any of the NT systems (ie: xp, NT 4, Server 2003, 2000 PRO etc...) all have the NT kernel which if you look during your install say " Windows (whatever version) is built on NT technology" and "You now have built in CD burning" soon and perhaps with the upcoming service pack 2, it will start coming with DVD burning capability.

I believe the only windows kernel out that currently supports cd burning is the NT one

Ok so, I've got a Dell Dimension 3000, 2.8GHz Pentium 4, 512mb ram.

Im doing an upgrade due to my lack of a video card and sufficient ram for games. *I'm upgrading strictly for gaming*
I'm adding ram, going to have a total of 2gigs. Did it on crucial and it should work fine.
Now as many of you already know the Dimension 3000 only has PCI video card slots. So, I did some research and found the best possible card for my mobo. (At least I think) The x1550:

And just recently I saw this:

But can't find it anywhere in stores, could someone show me where that is available? To my knowledge that would be better than the x1550, right?
Also, what kind of Shaders and Vertex shaders do these have?

Well assuming I'm getting the x1550 how do I determine if the video card is compatible with my monitor? *This is my main concern*

Another question, again assuming I'm getting the x1550, I see the recommended PSU is 420W. Now, my original dell PSU is a 250W. So I'm convinced theres no way I'll be running this card without a PSU upgrade. I went to pcpower cooling's site, went to the compatible PSU's for my dimension 3000 and found this:

Google your PC and said you have a 250 Watt power supply (may be true or not but hey..its Cnet that said it) On Newegg it said that the 1550 needs a 420 watt or greater...From those numbers well...You'll need a new power supply. Or you can just upgrade =D

Ok so, I've got a Dell Dimension 3000, 2.8GHz Pentium 4, 512mb ram.

Im doing an upgrade due to my lack of a video card and sufficient ram for games. *I'm upgrading strictly for gaming*
I'm adding ram, going to have a total of 2gigs. Did it on crucial and it should work fine.
Now as many of you already know the Dimension 3000 only has PCI video card slots. So, I did some research and found the best possible card for my mobo. (At least I think) The x1550:

And just recently I saw this:
http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=8982
But can't find it anywhere in stores, could someone show me where that is available? To my knowledge that would be better than the x1550, right?
Also, what kind of Shaders and Vertex shaders do these have?

Well assuming I'm getting the x1550 how do I determine if the video card is compatible with my monitor? *This is my main concern*

Another question, again assuming I'm getting the x1550, I see the recommended PSU is 420W. Now, my original dell PSU is a 250W. So I'm convinced theres no way I'll be running this card without a PSU upgrade. I went to pcpower cooling's site, went to the compatible PSU's for my dimension 3000 and found this:

A:Big Video card compatiblity question + power question

I am also using Dell Dimension 3000, and I upgraded all Video Card, RAM and PSU already, so I think I can help you a little bit here.

First, which games do you want to play? Because if you want to play newest games, then I'm sorry, you will have to buy a whole new computer. X1550 and 2gb of DDR RAM won't help you anymore.

Second, as far as I know, X1550 is the best for PCI now, but X1300 is really slightly behind. Many people believe they are the same. You can easily buy X1300 from newegg. You bought mine with $20.00 cheaper from eBay, but I guess money is not really your problem anyway.

Third, I have used X1300 and FX5500 and didn't see any problem with Dell Monitor at all. The only thing you need to be careful if you decide to buy X1300 is that there are two kind of X1300. Don't buy the Small Factor version because it is made for special kind of computer, and it won't fit into your case. The one you should buy look like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129062

Fourth, even though many people suggest that we should only use Dell PSU because the other PSU won't fit into the case, I am actually using this one of Antec: http://reviews.pricegrabber.com/power-supplies/m/601582/
It fits perfectly.
And yes, PSU upgrade is a good idea. I believe my system is working very well, so you should have at least 350W PSU. DON'T buy cheap PSU.

Outlook Express Question:

I just bought a new computer and want to move my spam filters (message rules and blocked senders list) to my new computer. It has taken me two years to build this filter system which has hundreds of rules and blocked senders. It was very effective cutting my spam from about 75-125 messages a day to about 3 or 4 a day.

Power supply :- OCZ PowerStream 520W
Module size and kit size:-
CPU model and rated speed:-Athlon 64 3200+
Overclocked CPU speed:-
Divider and FSB used:-
Motherboard and revision:-DFI LANPARTY UT NF4-D ATX
Motherboard Bios rev:-
Video card:- eVGA Geforce 6600GT
Operating System:-None yet
CPU and System Cooling:-3 Case fans, mobo fan and cpu fan, gfx card fan
Country:-Canada

I have three case fans, all which have a 3 pin connection that attaches to the motherboard and a 4 pin (same as Hard drive sized power supply connector). The 4 pin connectors have both a male and female end so that they can go inline with another part or could even be daisy chained together. My question is which line of the power supply should these be connected to?

I have a few options, I could connect one or more to the cable the contains a few 4 pin connectors and a 5V/12V power connector at the end for the motherboard or I could daisychain them on the end of a power supply cable marked (VGA/H.D.D). Also do I need both the 3 pin motherboard connector and 4 pin power supply connector, connected or are these two seperate option, which I merely need to choose one of (ie. Motherboard connection OR Power supply 4 pin connection). If so, which is better to choose?)
 

A:Case fan question and other power connections question

If you connect them to your mobo then it will be able to monitor their speeds via the yellow wire. If you connect them to your PSU it doesnt matter which 4 pin molex connector you fit them to as they all join up inside the PSU. Another option is to buy a fan speed controller and plug them into that, the advantage is that you can control the speed and therefore the ammount of noise they produce, the more expensive controllers can also monitor speeds and temperature(s).

Hope that helps. Rik.

Ive only had the privledge (and by that, I mean, enough money) to build a single CPU (with my brother, it was his) in my life. I recall it has (still works apart from mobo, only recently replaced) a intel core 2 quad. I see people talking about bent pins and stuff on CPUs, but I dont remember pins being on the core 2 quad. that was the easiest part I recall, just literally placed the chip in the socket (the heatsink, that was a headache). I dont recall any pins. Are pins literally pins as in thin rods sticking out of the bottom, or what?
 

A:Sorta random CPU question (no problems, just a question)

Most modern CPU's (Intel at least) no longer have pins on the CPU, but instead the pins are on the socket.

The newer socket 1155 and 1366 (and 2011 for that matter) are just like the Socket 775 you are experienced with the Core 2 Quad you installed, just slightly larger sockets.

It is still very possible to bend pins though, but in this way, you damage the motherboard (with the CPU socket) vs. the CPU. You must be careful when inserting the CPU since dropping it on a corner into the socket CAN bend and damage pins.

So if you've built a system with Socket 775/Core 2 Quad, you should have no problem with Core i3/i5/i7 and newer Intel sockets if this is what you plan to do. Everything is basically the same... just slightly different socket and DDR3 memory vs. DDR2, which are also very similar and just snap in the DIMM slots similarly.

I hope that helps! Good luck!

Okay, I'm buying a new hard drive and I'm looking for the best deal I can find. I have a K8V special edition motherboard and a 120 GB hard drive (Maxtor, not sure if SATA or not). My motherboard can support 2 SATAs but beyond that I don't know how many hard drives I can support. What I'm looking at is a 300GB hard drive "Maxtor 300GB 7200RPG Ultra16 PATA Internal Hard Drive" with 133MB/sec transfer speed. For the same price ($149) I can get a 200GB SATA with 150MB/sec speed. Three questions:

1) What's PATA, and can my motherboard support it?
2) Which hard drive am I better off getting, assuming I can use both?

Next, I recently tried upgrading my Windows (from XP to XP <_< there was a problem with getting SP2). I made it to the point where you have to reset your computer and go from there, but when I did the Windows setup ran into a missing file and couldn't go further. I restarted and had the option of choosing whether I wanna start up in normal XP or in the XP setup, so my original Windows is intact. But now I get that choice whenever I turn my computer on, and I'd like to know how to remove the XP setup as an option for starting up. Thanks for the help guys.

Hi all, I was wondering if someone could inform me on what nic.exe, coo.exe, and dnar.exe are and if they are something to raise an eyebrow at. I have them showing up in processes on some of the computers I work on and not on some of the others. I can't seem to find any information on these processes and what their purpose are. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Also on a machine I work on, its an IBM Netvista, the machine comes up w/ an error related to csrss.exe. After some research I learned that this is a name which many hacks will use to disguise programs. I did some checking and in the processes I have two csrss.exe processes running. I can not end either one - I get the message they can't close they are windows blah blah blah's. However, on some of my other machines, my Dell Optiplex GX400 for example only shows up w/ one csrss.exe process. One other thing i noticed is that on the machines that have two csrss.exe processes running, one is running at about 1600k - 3000k and the other approx 180k, making me believe that the 180k one is not supposed to be there, when on my other machines, the csrss.exe process runs approx the same as the 1600k-3000k process on the NetVista. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Measure your current PSU, compare with the new one (looks good). They are all pretty much alike size-wise nowadays, and should fit straight in.

Hi i am currently running xp sp3 and was wondering if the fire wall it has built in is good enough or should i download 1 on line? and if so what 1 should i download.

Also a couple of friends of mine were having issues with there computers and the installed cc cleaner on to there computers and it cleaned out there registries and they say that there computer ran better. Now my computer isnt slow but it is not running like when i built it i mean i have done much downloading and stuff so but the loose of speed is not enough for anyone to notice but me. I just want to know is it worth downloading some kind of Registry cleaner or is it not. I have heard that they can mess up your computer so.

A:Fire Wall Question and Registry question

As far as firewalls go, I prefer a router. But Ive used zone alarm
in the past, worked pretty well, do a google, there is a free download.

You should have started another thread on the topic of reg cleaners.
I dont use them or recommend them as they can cause more harm
than good. Others will differ. In the future when having 2 questions
please post separately. Thks,,,,

I was looking at this wikipedia page on motherboards.

B150 looks like an attractive price point for me. We dont use many USB ports.
What does "PCH PCI Express configuration" mean?

H170 - 16 ? 3.0

Q170 & Z170 - 20 ? 3.0


Some motherboard specification sheets state (O.C.) meaning its overclocked. So I need to OC the ram in order to get that speed. Other spec sheets just state it without (O.C.) statement.

Out of all the questions to ask, this one took up the most space on my whiteboard, so here goes.

I am developing my own TELNET application. When data is recieved, I have a sub break it down, chatacter-by-character until it comes to a formatting tag. At the tag, it sets three Private RGB integers to the color specified, then, deletes the tag from the incoming string, and continues normally, applying the color formatting to the characters, and adding them to a RichTextBox. Sounds simple? Here's the question. When I apply the color formatting, it does not appear in the RichTextBox. Here is the code I use:

Text1.SelColor = GetColor
Text1.Text = Text1.Text + temp
Text1.SelStart = Len(Text1.Text)
Text = Right$(Text, Len(Text) - 1)

Text1 is the RTB, temp is the character picked up, Text is the incoming string, GetColor is the RGB() of the three variables mentioned earlier. Yet, the color is not displayed. Why is this?

Shouldn't be too hard for all of you....

PS---I am programming in Visual Basic 6.0
 

A:RichTextBox Color Question---(easy question)

I'm not sure you can colorize an RTB without subclassing it and using the WinApi functions. I may be wrong though.

Hi folks / performance gurus

Got an old server 4 HDD storage bays and SSD with Raid 0 -- created 2 arrays of 2 logical HDD's but 4 physical HDD's (1 array 2 X 4TB, 1 array 2 X 3TB) --

Is this better than creating 1 array of all 4 HDD's - I'd lose some space because the arrays have to be the same size.

I'm not too bothered on other issues of RAID 0 -- I want the fastest HDD SPEED I can get out of the system - I've plenty of backups so HDD failure here isn't a primary concern.

SSD is the boot device - works fine -- just need info on setting up these 4 HDD's for the best performnce -- Storage array is set up in BIOS before Windows boots.

Help here appreciated -- I can usually get stuff to work (old Engineer) but don't necessarily have the knowledge to optimize performance.

Cheers
jimbo

A:Windows RAID 0 question performance question

What do you need the array speed for if you have an SSD as a boot up drive? If it's just for storage, raid 0 is like putting all your eggs in 1 basket..I know you have backups but having those drives independent of each other will give you less chances of a failure and headache.
