Question: help picking the best reasonable 1155 mobo available

i have been told 1155 is going away, but i was told that just under a year ago and its not proving to be true. i just came into a little extra money, and am considering the best mother board i could get my hands on for 1155.

this is what i am looking at. and im hoping to get some suggestions and hopfuly hear from someone who has it-
Newegg.com - ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Preferred Solution: help picking the best reasonable 1155 mobo available

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: help picking the best reasonable 1155 mobo available

Eventually, all sockets go away, but I haven't heard anything particular about 1155. Are you mistaking that for 1156, which is about gone?

As long as you have a good brand and a little bit of luck, I'd just shop on the basis of desire features and price/support.

What does "best" mean in this context?

That particular board is certainly more than you need for most purposes and would be a waste of money for a typical installation. But you may need each and every one of its features. I don't know.

I will soon be looking to upgrade to a sandybridge system, probably i5 2500k or i7 2600k, but really dont know which way to go in terms of motherboards. I deffinately want a Z-series chipset, but beyond that it seems to be an impossible choice. I started only looking at Asus, as thats what my current board is and its been excellent, but recently have seen the likes of MSI and Gigabyte bring out excellent alternatives, with PCI-e 3.0 (i know its not of much use now, but i would like this pretty future proof) and other great features, like EFI bios, different phases etc.
im looking for quite a high end board that can do some pretty serious overclocking, but not in the Republic-Of-Gamers series price range.
Can any one make any suggestions and reasons why to choose a certain board? personal experience would be great, or just based on what you would choose if you were/are upgrading to a similar system.
Im currently pretty biased towards Asus, ive had no issues with them ever, but they seem to be lagging behind in terms of new features, is anyone aware of any future releases from them eg PCI-e 3.0 etc?

thanks

So I'm trying to decide what mobo I want for my gaming/video ediiting pc build. I've gotten a few suggestions from people to really look towards the x79 mobo's that have the 2011 socket. They say that the 2011 should have a longer shelf life due to its support of future 6 core CPU's from intel. My question is do you guys thinks its worth getting a 2011 mobo? or should I just stick with the 1155 mobo? If you think 2011 then what 2011 mobo would you suggest? (going for a 1500 - 1700 dollar pc).
 

Answer:MOBO socket 2011 or 1155?

I think you should focus on what CPU you want to base your build around rather than the MOBO. That will make the choice for you seeing as a CPU is only compliant with certain socket types.

i have a mobo with lga1156 and a processor with lga 1155
i want to make sure before i go and change it all around because we have to be $15 within the given budget and im 18 cents over
i may need a site that shows it
if anyone can help that would give me an A on the project and i would owe a great debt of thanks to yinz.

TIA,

Answer:lga 1156 mobo compatible with lga 1155

LGA 1155 is not compatible with 1156 as 1155 processors have advanced hardware built into them that is built into the 1156 board. Therefore an 1155 processor would not boot on an 1156 board nor the other way around.

I'm looking for a Xeon E3-1235 cpu (LGA 1155 socket) to build a server, I read here in a post from almost a year ago that not all 1155 MOBOs can handle the Xeon cpus.

Is this true?

In Newegg they have normal 1155 boards and 1155 Server boards.
Since normal boards are much cheaper and I won't use all the features in server boards I was planning to get a normal board.

Should I get a server board instead??

Answer:MOBO for Intel Xeon E3-1235 LGA 1155

Unlike the last generation Xeon 1156 chips (X3440, X3450, X3450), the latest Xeon 1155 chips (E3-1230, E3-1235, E3-1240) are not known for their compatibility with non-server boards. For whatever reasons, manufacturers did not update the microcode on non-serverl boards to facilitate the Xeon 1155 chips.

I would suggest a server board for the Xeon E3-1235 CPU.

So after looking around for a couple weeks I have finally narrowed it down to these two options. By the way this is just a gaming rig only. So heres what I have came up with now consider both mobo/cpu setups they pretty much cost the same which is around the $550 area and are at my highest budget also both boards support 2x 16x PCI-E which would be nice for my dual 7970s.

First is:

Gigabyte G1 Sniper 5 mobo (currently has a $100 rebate)- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128595

Second is:

By the way I forgot to add I have a fully custom watercooling loop with multiple radiators And everything will be powered by a XFX PRO 1250watt PSU so power and cooling is no issue with either setup I decide to go with. Thanks for the help open to any opinions.

Do you intend to overclock at all is my first question.

But basically if your just making a gaming rig, the i7 will probably be the better choice for you.

My dad recently gave me his dell pc, I can tell you some specs. But I think it would be best if there were some kind of program that could detect my hardware?

Basically, I'm trying to put on a GeForce vid card that the mobo doesn't support(hardware doesn't fit). So obviously I need a new motherboard, that will support the card and all the other hardware.

If anyone knows the program to detect my hardware, please post it. Then my next step is to find the ideal mobo on newegg.com

Question: LGA 1155 and Video

Was wondering why newer 1155 mobos have vga/dvi ports on them when so many of the newer systems will use a seperate video card?

I know the video processing is built into the chip, so am curious as to why put the VGA/DVI on the mobo at all, and if you use the ports does that take away from the RAM available or since that is handled by the processor is it no factor for RAM?

Thanks
 

Answer:LGA 1155 and Video

They are used for non gaming specific computer setups
like home theater PC's.
The all in one processor graphics aren't really great for gaming
by themselves,but they are capable of handling HD video playback.
Keeps it cheaper for HTPC users as they don't have to buy a dedicated
graphics card.
The on die graphics can also be used in hybrid mode for energy saving.
For low demand applications,it can automatically switch from the dedicated
graphics card to the on chip graphics to save power.

There are probably 21 bests... just wade through the recent reviews, and avoid getting one that is too new... as it seems like to many manufacturers and retailers us us folks as their testers...

Wait until your list of good boards has had time to be reported and evaluates on the various sites...

New Egg is not a bad site for getting a good first look at motherboard reviews...

You probably don't need the latest thing, and they are the most suspect anyway.

Question: Demise 1155??

I was just checking out the difference between the 1155 and the 1150 sockets and came across this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadwe...roarchitecture)

Now I was thinking of a new build in the nearish future maybe with the Haswell but saw this and am beginning to wonder where it will all end. The slope into being able to keep up looks to be getting steeper and steeper and along with the software to go with it all is making me feel a tad uncomfortable if only from a point of view that one will not be able to afford it it or keep up with each new development.

Maybe it is time to stop where I am.

Answer:Demise 1155??

Yeah, once Intel is done selling LGA CPUs, AMD is going to become king because they're going to continue selling CPUs that are not soldered to the motherboard.

So I'm putting a new build together, so I can play with the Ivybridge goodness, and I'm looking for an after-market CPU cooler. I loathe the stock Intel coolers, those little claw feet things never seem to attach properly, and I have nightmare about the heat sink and fan assembly surrendering to the powers of gravity and crash landing on the video card.

Since no one knows more about computer parts than the geeks here at MGs, I've decided to try and get opinions and feedback here, since some of our regulars are bound to have given in to temptation before I, and may have first-hand experience of 1155-coolers. My budget is in the $50-$70 range (this can be stretched, but prefer not to), and the thing is supposed to go on top of an i7-3770 in an ASUS P8Z77V motherboard.

Copper, with large and quiet fan much preferred, and looks are utterly irrelevant as long as it works and works well.

Thanks in advance, everyone.

As the title says, what are the major differences between i7 cpus in the 1155 package vs the 1366 package. I know they require different motherboards, and the 1155 is dual channel wrt memory while the 1366 is triple channel. But there musr be something else that accounts for the price difference between them.
 

Answer:What's the difference between i7's 1155 vs 1366?

The Sandy Bridge is 32nm vs. 45nm so less power needed=less heat, clocked at 3.4 GHz stock can be easily overclocked to 4.6 or so on air due to it being unlocked, fastest thing around. The only bad thing is it can only be upgraded to 6 core and will be expensive I believe, same as 6 core 1366 which is around $1K a copy ATM. You got $300 then you will like it, it all depends on what you want to do with it.

I'm getting ready to build several i5-based desktops for a client and am confused on the features and benefits of the different mobo chipsets available.

Here are the key specs of the build:

* High end audio production. Will likely add HT Omega 24-bit sound card to at least three of the PCs.

* i5 CPU (model TBD). Dual monitor setup. Little if any video editing, so it's likely I'll use the on-board Intel graphics (VGA and DVI) without adding a video card.

* Win 7 Pro 64-bit.

* No overclocking. These PCs will be used in a radio station for on-air programming and production, so 24/7 reliability is critical (on the two set up for on-air use, I'll likely use a RAID 1 or RAID 5 setup).

Any thoughts on which mobo chipset to choose would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Socket 1155 - Best Chipset?

I would not worry about the chipset. You just need to get motherboards that support your "mission" requirements. If the board supports the i5, so will the chipset.

There are more important concerns when building PCs, like the case (responsible for providing sufficient air flow through the case). And with "several" computers, fan noise will be an issue - ESPECIALLY if people are trying to focus on the music.

It is case's responsibility to suppress noise, but it is also the fan's responsibility to not make any - and not compromise cooling in the process. This take quality design, parts, and assembly. You buy cheap, you get cheap. I like Antec case's - but only those with removable, washable air filters.

The PSU - should be the last purchase decision - yet is arguable the most important. Quality, reliability, and 80+ Certification are a MUST. And in a radio studio, so is noise.

Far too often self-builders attempt to cut corners with the power supply to save money. Bad mistake.

Amount of RAM is critical. With 64-bit Windows 7 (a wise choice, IMO), I recommend at 8Gb with dual channel motherboards.

Remember, more and more computers are being integrated into home theater systems - and audiophile quality systems too. So, if you stay away from the entry level motherboards, the higher up stuff have very-good to excellent on-board, usually 8-channel (7.1), audio support.

What kind of radio? AM/FM? HD or satellite?

Question: Intel 1155 & 1156

With the release of the 1155 format, the 1156 seems to have vanished. The question is this: does the 1155 socket have the same spacing as 1156 between posts for the CPU cooler? I have a CPU cooler that supports 1156 (it was purchased 9-12 mon before the advent of 1155) and a friend recently built an 1155 system but does not want to use the stock cooler, and I figured I'd give him my old cooler if it will fit securely and correctly (no jerry-rigging allowed! LOL). So: will a cooler that's compatible with the 1156 socket mount correctly on an 1155 socket?

(the cooler in question is my old CoolerMaster Hyper212+ - I upgraded to a Spire Thermax II Eclipse about 4-6 months ago)

I'm not sure where to post this as there is no specific hardware talk forum without involving Windows 7.

What's bugging me right now is the release of Intels new LGA1155 and it's future LGA2011 with and X68 chipset.

LGA1366 is defnitly the way to go if you are an enthusiast. TRI-SLI (X58 chipset x16, x16, x4 PCIe 2.0), supurb overclocking features and alot of harcore motherboards! Alot of resources on the web. Not to mention Intel and nVidia finally agreed upon having SLI capabilities on Intels chipset now giving you the choice between SLI and CF! Big step in gaming!

On the other hand, LGA 1155 supports the new iCore7 Sandy Bridge 2600K cpu. They are amazing to overclock (5Ghz easy!) and perform extremely well due to it's new microarchitecture! Most motherboards are reasonable but the P67 Chipset does not support full 2x16 PCIe 2.0. Not ideal for SLI or CF but one 570GTX or more would definitely be more then enough to run todays games and very high settings. Also to note ,some boards have a faulty Southbridge regarding SATA IIRC! Don't forget native USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0Gb/sec capabilities!

Now for the overkill! There are no dates yet, but most people presume LGA 2011 is going to be a desktop board sporting the new X68 chipset of which details have not yet been released. Who knows, this board might supply full 3x16 PCEi 3.0! Blazing fast, super effeicent CPUS! Most likely going to be Intels Ivy Bridge made with Intels 22nm process combined with Quad-Channel DDR3 R...

Answer:LGA 1366 or LGA 2011 or LGA 1155

As a moderate gamer, I think that SLI is overrated, so it's always 1 video card for me. I don't really like to wait and purchase what's coming around the corner, but would rather use what I know is here and now. Without a doubt, if I assembled another personal machines today, it would be a socket 1155 with a Sandy Bridge CPU.

Answer:Trying to decide on new Motherboard for replacement 1155.

I have the latter and I am liking it, it overclocks nicely and is stable. But what the Z68 has above the P67 is the integrated graphics and the Hybrid SSD Smart response technology. Do you think you would use either? Probably not. So I would base my decision on other features like the peripheral connections and the price.

The VRM power deliver system is a bit different. The P67 has 16 CPU phases, the Z68 has 12 CPU + 4 iGPU phases. I doubt it would make any difference unless you did an *extreme* overclock.

You can get that front panel USB box for the Z68 for $30 from Asus if that matters (the Z68 has one for the back panel).

The P67 has been around longer (it has 10 BIOS revisions - yikes!), and it doesn't even appear on the Asus USA listing of P67 boards. That might only mean they are not organized. Their BIOS notes indicate that they will support Ivy bridge on it.

Frankly, the UEFI interface doesn't do much for me. Sure it is nice to be able to use a mouse, but it is also easy to get around with the keyboard and you won;t really spend that much time in the BIOS (after playing around for a while )

BTW, the first Z68 I got had a motherboard issue with graphics interfering with sound. The second is great. I think, from any vendor and any model there can be problems - perhaps due to shipping and handling - I don't know (but just look at the newegg reviews). I got mine from Amazon, and if you get a faulty one, they will ship you a replacement and you don't have to retu... Read more

Firstly please follow the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Second it sounds like you are using a registry cleaner, now I will tell you right of the bat get rid of it those things will do more harm than good and any tech worth their salt will tell you the same thing Windows 7 does not have any need for such programs. So that being said your problems could be caused by the registry cleaner having deleted things that it should not have deleted.

As I gather from your post it seems like you can not open up an administrative command prompt which could mean one of two things, if you used to be able to open and administrative command prompt then there may be damage to the file system, if you have not ever been able to open an administrative command prompt then chances are that you do not have administrative access to the computer.

About a month ago my main board (GA-Z77X-UD3H) started to fail for some odd reason and ive been wanting to replace it since, but now ive beought myself a mini itx RVZ01 case and SFX-L power supply to make a small gaming oriented build and finally replace my motherboard, but i cant seem to make up my mind on which motherboard to buy, having in mind that im running on a gtx 670 and an i5 3570k processor, which is not that powerfull for todays standars, and i dont want to waste a lot of money.

My initial thoughts were on buying this motherboard
Amazon.com: ASUS DDR3 Intel Z77 2400 Socket Motherboard P8Z77-I DELUXE/WD: Computers & Accessories

but then again ive found a lot of cheap options like this
Amazon.com: ASUS P8H61-I R2.0 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard: Computers & Accessories

My main concern is that the cheap alternatives wont keep up with the gpu and cpu and i dont plan on making any serious upgrades since i would have to replace the entire pc components for it to be worth the huge next gen investment. (EDIT) Ill post my original specs somewhere; not using win 7 anymore btw.

So my question is: Any suggestions? What should i buy? (having in mind that im using an 1155lga cpu and a mini itx case) Im looking for anything under 200$ but when it comes to choosing i simply cant make up my mind and would really appreciate some help.

Answer:Need suggestions on a Mini ITX 1155 board replacement.

I just bought and installed the Asus P8H61-I R2.0 board to build a new system using some old parts I had lying around (an i3-2100 cpu and 4GB of DDR3 memory.
It is very impressive board, and Asus has an excellent reputation.

One thing about this MB, it only has one expansion slot (a PCIe x16) so you can add your graphics card if you want but that's it.

So I am trying to install a piece of software I purchased in Japan. It's supposed to be compatible with all pieces of windows software so long as it's the Japanese version. I am running English windows but I downloaded some software called "Vistalizator" that is supposed to allow me to work around this problem.

Still, this isn't really the problem. The problem is this InstallShield error I get when I try to run the executable file. The error is mostly in gibberish (see attached Jpg) but there is an error code "1155" associated with the error. You can also see "msi" in the error message. Google told me it's because I don't have the Windows Installer Engine or something.

Does anybody have any idea how to solve this error? I see a lot of threads online about it and none of them really seem to resolve the problem.

Thanks so much!

I keep hearing people who have fairly modern PC's (although perhaps lacking a good graphics card) talking about buying a PS3. I would like to tell them that they should really consider spending $200 to $250 for a new video card and using their PC to play games thereby saving themselves the much larger cost of a PS3.

Is this reasonable advice? If they were to upgrade an Intel P4 (3.2 MHz with adequate memory, hard drive, sound quality, etc.) by buying a fairly good quality video card, would that put the machine into a comparable quality such that it would run most games available for the PC such that it would compare fairly well to those same games running on the PS3?

It doesn't have to be extremely high quality. I'd just like to know if it would be reasonably accurate to say that upgrading a fairly modern PC (with a P4 CPU - not a Celeron) with a good quality video card would put it into roughly the same level of performance for playing games as the PS3.

Hi all,

I'm currently looking into buying a new server for the company I'm interning at. The issue is I'm somewhat clueless about IT in general, so I'm concerned an offer I've received for a Dell PowerEdge T430 server which I've pasted below is a rip off. The price I've been quoted is $4020,10.

Here are the specs:
"Server Dell PowerEdge T430 8B, (1)*Intel Xeon E5-2630v4 Processor (2.2GHz, 10C, 25MB, 8.0GT/s QPI, 85W), 32GB (2x16GB) 2400MHz RDIMM, PERC H330, DVD+/-RW, (2)*1TB SATA 6Gbps 7.2k 3.5" HD Hot Plug (up to 8x3.5"HDD), Broadcom 5720 GbE Dual Port on board, IDRAC8 Ent., (2)*750W, No Rails, 3y NBD"

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Also if it helps the initial uses of the server would be secure data storage, hosting an email service for 12 staff members, and if possible setting up a hybrid disaster recovery solution, for instance linking the service to a cloud based service like Microsoft Azure.

If anyone out there can suggest a cheaper and viable alternative that would be ace!

Best regards,

James

Good Afternoon, Gentlemen,
I am sorely, at least I think so, of the sound advice that you hand out, on a very regular basis.
I have had an Acer Aspire One 722-C62kk with an 11.6” screen and 4GB for a couple of years. And it has done – and is doing – the job I wanted it to do; namely to take on holidays with us so we can keep in touch with friends whilst on the holiday. But we are just back from 2 weeks in Lanzarote and I must admit that I have found it s-l-o-w. I do not know anything about chips and, therefore, would be very grateful if someone could recommend a notebook with a faster chip in it. This is where I will probably annoy some of you: I would like one that is 5 to 10 times faster!! Also I am not looking for a new notebook – these all seem to come with Windows 10 which I do not like – but a second hand one with Windows 7 preferably 64Bit Home Premium or similar with USB 3.0 port(s). I am quite willing to go to £100, but for a good one am willing to stretch up to £200. If a company that trades in second hand notebooks has options and any of you know a reasonably reliable one that would also be helpful.
I know I am being picky, but at my time of life I am getting more and more specific and that is why I am asking you gentlemen.
Any and all – no matter how rude – replies will be very gratefully received.

I wanted to hear some opinions about the situation in the office I work in.

Recently we changed accounting software and my advice to change to Office 365 was rejected. Still all 15 employees want their emails to be safe and backed up.
Some employees don't delete their emails, so I end up with approximately 10 GB PST-file size per year per user. Of course I split them year by year. The problem is that they want to keep even pst files from 5 or more years ago. Always available. My idea is now, that I make a one time backup copy of recent years and a daily backup of the actual year.
I made some tries already with EaseUS. But I'm not satisfied.
I'd prefer not to schedule it and leave it up to the employee to decide when to make the backup. So, let's say the employee leaves earlier for some reason why leaving the PC on until 7 pm or so? Also a power cut could prevent that scheduled backup entirely from happening.
Here's a list of what I need the backup software to be able to do:

- Start the whole backup process with a double-click on an icon (on the desktop). EaseUS needs more steps incl. always having to set the Shutdown option manually.
- On the destination file storage or NAS I want to overwrite the previous file, not to create version after version. Or even better: Create a new version but delete the old version afterwards. PSTs are really a hard case since you can't really make incremental backups. I also doubt that some employees will understa... Read more

This is NOT a serious problem, just more of an annoyance which is intriguing me.
With 4gb ram, a reasonable dual processor and graphics card, one would expect a reasonably good performance whatever the case.
My automatic startup consists of just Avast AV, Java, and Malwarebytes although l also get additional icons on the taskbar for the Network and Sharing Center and Action Center.
I use Firefox as my main browser.
I also use SuperAntiSpyware, CCleaner, and Defraggler reasonably frequently, so l know that my system is clear of any junk, malware, spyware, and that no viruses are present.
I fire the system up in the morning, bring up Firefox and all is fine, and reasonably quick.
Do a fair amount of downloading using the MiPony download manager to access rapidshare files, but with my crap connection, the max download speed seems to hover around the 280kbs mark.
I may also have two FF sessions on the go, as well as the downloading, so whatever l do after that seems to really slow the system down.
I have even run ConvertX at the same time as all of the above and the system came to a near grinding halt.
Now l know that all of the above are processor/ram hungry but surely with my specs the computer should more than cope?
Maybe l'm missing something obvious or my dual processor system just cannot cope with more than two ram hungry programs running at the same time.
Has anyone got any ideas or do l just have to live with it.

I have four rather old HDDs that are either not recognized by the system or that cause computer shut down when connected.

Is it reasonable to attempt to repair these? It is my understanding that the majority of all HDD failures are electrical and not mechanical. If this is true, then I would conclude that most problems are caused by the replaceable control board on the HD.

BTW I have a circuit board on order to attempt the repair of a 250GByte Seagate HD (a Barracuda 7200.10).

This HD seems to be an ideal candidate for home repair because it immediately shuts down the computer when power is applied. There is a direct short from the HDs' 5 volt input pin to ground. That short circuit exists even when the board is removed from the HD.

Obtaining an exact replacement seems to be the trick. I 'think' I have done that.
 

Answer:Is It Reasonable/Sensible to Attempt to Repair a HDD

It's not as simple as replacing the PCB on most modern drives, you may also have to move the original ROM chip or firmware that contains the specific drive parameters to the new PCB. Unlike older drives, new drives are all slightly different and unique. With the 7200.10 a PCB swap may work because its an older drive.

I recommend a 6600GT video card. It should costly almost the same, and you get a lot more performance.

The two bad things are these:

a) You must have a good, quality 300-350 power supply, from a good, well-known manufacturer, with at least 20 A on the 12V rail, in order to have a stable computer.

b) The performance of a 9800 PRO or a 6600GT will be limited by your current CPU (is it a Celeron D or a Celeron?).

A long tale of woe that ends with some questions. Please bare with me in the background explanation.

For over a year I've been having occasional flurries of crashes, hangs and (rarely) BSODs. Months would go by with no problem, then dozens of crashes or hangs in a week. The event logs and rare dumps have not been helpful. People here said it sounded like hardware problem, but no diagnostics I ran could find a problem.

I took it to a pc repair shop which could find no hardware problem (and of course it would not crash or hang for them). The suggested (as did people on this forum) that it probably was ZoneAlarm Internet Security. They installed the Kaspersky Internet Security product (for a fee, of course) and said that should fix the problems. 2 days later it froze 3 times and did automatic reboots 5 times.

I took it back. It still wouldn't crash or hang for them. They said Windows probably needed to be reinstalled - that my update from Win7 Home to Pro corrupted something. Rather than mess up the installation again I asked them to do it (for a fee, of course).

During their attempts to reinstall Windows it started crashing for them. They succeeded on their 3rd attempt, ran some more tests, checked the configuration, and found problems with the ram. They said ram I had was incompatible with the mother board and buggy, but the problems could not be detected by the diagnostics. They also said they had to reinstall Windows a 4th time because the 3rd reinstallation ... Read more

Answer:Reasonable explanation for crashes?

OCZ is high quality, but it is also one of the least compatible memories on the market (meaning it works properly with the fewest hardware configurations)
I use it personally and have for years with no complaint. ...and certainly without the problems you describe, though I always verify the motherboard/ram compatibility before I purchase a motherboard.

If the ram is actually bad it can cause any number of seemingly unrelated problems and errors. Since basically everything processes through the ram and it can be only one stick or one specific memory address on a stick that actually causes the problem. It's possible this bad address can go for months without being used until a specific set of circumstances pops up.

Via the chat facility, Norton advisors have removed part of the problem remotely but the popups have come back and other irritations, like slow running remain.They have now escalated my call to their virus specialist and want to charge me 70 for a detailed consultation plus check of the PC and clean up. Am I being reasonable thinking that Norton 360 should have stopped the trojan in the first place and it's a bit much having to pay them to clean up. The adviser was quite aggressive saying that I should have this done straight away otherwise I might spread the virus on the internet and my ISP will cut me off.I'd be grateful for views on Norton's stance.

Answer:Antivirus XP & Norton 360 - Reasonable?

Do a quick Google for "Antivirus XP 2008", have a look at the first hit from bleepingcomputer, should be able to sort it yourself.Google is your friend.

I'm buying a Intel I7-2600k for my main rig. I was wonder what would be a good board to house it and my 2 6950's 2gb. I do plan on overclocking .. So any board that will allow me to do so easier will be appreciated.

Would like to go no higher then 300$

Thanks in Advance.
 

Answer:Good mid-range to high-end Intel LGA 1155 motherboard suggestions

The best board I've used thus far -a combination of stability, feature set, ease of use and overclock ability would be the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen 3. It features a PLX bridge chip which allows use of virtually all features concurrently ( the third PCIe x16 @ x4 isn't downgraded to x1 for instance if you use most/all of the SATA 6Gb/USB3.0 ports).
If you don't need a full-size board then the ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 at around $180 might make some appeal. Both these boards have no facility for video-out (no onboard HDMI, DP, DVI, D-Sub) - not a great concern for most people looking at Z68 boards.

Word of warning: Z77 boards are reportedly due for release on 8th April. While they will offer very little (if anything) over Z68 boards, it will mean that Z68 board prices will take a nosedive. My advice if you need a board right now and want to save some cash, would be to pick up a functional and well regarded cheap board such as the P8Z68-V/G3 (which still a very nice board) and maybe look to replace it with one of the top-end boards which will surely drop in price. It does mean that you would have the hassle of finding a buyer for a board, but on the plus side you may find yourself happy with the P8Z68-V.

You'll notice that all the selections are Asus based products. Asus -at least for Z68, seems to be putting out the best boards overall. Some other vendors are having QC problems. Gigabyte, which are normally my first choice in mobo making, have some infuria... Read more

As a warning to TechSpot moderators, this thread may or may not need to be moved. It's up to you, really.

Was having some trouble with my Ethernet-in on the motherboard listed in my sig, so I downloaded the new Chipset drivers from the Foxconn website. During the install (or after it had "finished), I received an error message window with the code 1155 (maybe 1055), but no text. I assumed the system would handle it on the restart, so I restarted it.

Now, when I start the PC it says the file nvatabus.sys (or some ATA bus controller) is missing, and I could repair it if I had the Windows Setup CD.

Problem is, I'm visiting my friend in another state, so I don't have the Windows Setup CD. What should I do?
 

Answer:Coded 1155 During Chipset Driver Installation, System Won't Start!

The 1055 error can be a printer error, or it could mean that your system could not read the registry, or a network error, if on a network.
Close everything down. Boot to Safe Mode, and attempt the installation of the chipset drivers all over again. Watch carefully to be sure you know what error messages come up, if any.

I have Comcast cable. The Motorola Surfboard modem is connected to my desktop via Ethernet cable. I occasionally have to work with friend's laptops, and need to connect to the Web wirelessly, so am considering getting a wireless router. Trouble is, I can't find much info on the Web that tells me what I need, and prices go from $25 to $1200. I figure I only need something very simple, since I have no home network or multiple computers throughout the house.

So, can anyone recommend a good and relatively inexpensive router? Review in PC World liked the Belkin N, but have no idea if that's suitable or overkill or what.

Ok, I am basically new here and have a system I built in the middle of 2007. I am trying to see if it is viable to upgrade any of the components to make it a little more competitive for the rest of this year, but I don't know that there is much I can do with it without buying multiple components.

I have:

MSI AM2 Athlon 64/X2, PC6400 mem. capable motherboard
4600+ Athlon X2
NVIDIA 9600GT 512mb
2 gb PC6400 DDR2

I am currently running 64 bit Windows 7, and despite 2gb of memory it runs well.

Basically, I don't know if there is much that can be done with this. It's kind of stuck where it is. I could get a little faster dual core X2 processor, but I don't know that it would make much of a difference. Obviously a quad core CPU would require a new motherboard and CPU, so might as well do that with a whole new computer build. I could upgrade to 4gb of dual channel memory, but I don't know that games/programs would utilize it enough to be worth it. Video card wise, I have a 19" 1280 x 1024 monitor, so I whether or not a better video card would get a huge difference in framerate at that resolution I'm not sure.

I am primarily looking at this in regards to games like Bioshock 2, etc. coming out this year. I would just like to run those newer games a little better for this year until I anticipate building a new system in 2011. I have heard a lot of people say that 4gb of memory isn't totally used by most applications yet. I have heard that un... Read more

I have a very annoying issue wherein the small rubber V-shaped or triangular pegs attached to the base of the extended battery of my U150 have come off; so now the laptop wobbles when I type. I've called the service center (Philippines not India), they were very nice and courteous, but had no replacement part number so they cannot replace the part even if I am under warranty! How ridiculous is that?!?!  It would be so easy to mail me a pair of pegs and I would simply superglue it on the base.  What they offered is even more absurd!  They want me to give them a $90+ deposit to send them my whole battery pack (that is working just fine) which they are willing to replace in order to get the new legs on it.  We're talking about a pair of pegs worth no more that 25-US-cents!!!  Does anyone have any solutions? Or is there some other mystical resource to get these rubber pegs replaced? This issue has been going on for two months, and Lenovo has not replied, emailed, nor called as promised by the customer service receptionist who said they would refer my claim to Lenovo.

My nephew suggested recently that I buy some extra memory for my Dell Dimensiion 8250 computer, which is a couple of years old. Knowing that I have Rambus RD-RAM, he searched the Net and told me RD-RAM was both harder to find and more expensive than he expected.

He went to PrimeWatch and found only two websites which had RD-RAM available. Then he went to eBay and told me I could pay $400 for 1G of CD1066 RD-RAM or $256 for 1G of PC 800 RD-RAM.

I have two slots of 256 RD-RAM -- PC 1066, unless I'm mistaken -- which means I have two open slots. My nephew told me I could fill the two open slots with 512 PC 1066, which would give me 1.5 G total. Or, he said, my PC could hold up to 2 G of PC 800 RD-RAM. (All of this terminology is new to me, but my nephew appears to understand it quite well.)

I remember hearing a while back that the price of memory was dropping rapidly, but my nephew told me that seems to have changed. Is it possible that I could find better prices for RD-RAM than those shown on eBay?

I am trying to find a touchscreen monitor that is actually priced reasonably. It needs to be between 10 and 12 inches and the pixel resolution needs to be at least 1024x768.

I can't find any for a fair price. They make all kinds of good ones though... for $250 and up! They can't be THAT expensive since you can buy android tablets for like $150. Even mouser doesn't carry touchscreen LCD panels anymore that have a greater resolution than 640x480.

I have managed to find ONE that has a somewhat reasonable price but it's sold by a shady looking seller. Half of the reviewers didn't receive a working unit and the other half did.

I call ******** on these prices. They don't cost that much to produce. Something like that shouldn't cost more than $100. I'm not willing to spend more than $150 on a touchscreen monitor unless the resolution is 1280x720 or greater and even then I'm not spending more than 175-200.

So where is a place you can buy these from that are priced reasonably? If there are none, can I buy a $100-$150 android tablet just for the LCD panel, take it apart and somehow re wire everything up for use with a PC?

Hi,

I need to replace a TP-Link N600 router that is constantly dropping G-wifi. The N seems stable enough but TP-Link customer disservice is working at it's peak. Totally hopeless. I have been trying to get them to to take it back for warranty-repairs and all they keep telling me to do is update the firmware.

I had done that before I even contacted them the first time. I am now using some of their Beta firmware and still no change. I have had it with TP-Link.

So, looking for 4 x Gigabit LAN, G and N wifi at 450 to 600 Gb. An AC-wifi might be nice, but when N is working right, it does all I need. I still need G for my windows phone. {sigh}

I have just tried Zyxel, Edimax and Netgear. Returned them all as the TP-Link when running right had much better power output on both G and N ate distances. Linksys, not even slightly interested in, so what's left? If a Buffalo, I'd want a non-DD-Wrt version. DD-Wrt is great but too time consuming to configure.

Anyone with personal experience of a router they love that doesn't cost a $100+, care to chime in here.

Thanks

I essentially skipped Vista completely (bought it with the hardware, installed it, then discarded it) and started with the 7000 beta. Am currently toying with 7077 on a new, 3-week-old monster machine that needs to shift into productive use very soon.

Moving the "Documents and Settings" folder was easy back in XP days. It appears to be a lot more complicated now. However, after a bit of reading, I've come up with the following:
Clean install (in this case, 7077 x64) as user 'username'
Enable 'Administrator' account
Log out of 'username' and log into 'Administrator'
Continue with computer setup using the 'Administrator' account
Delete both the account and files for 'username'
Hack the registry to alter the location for new user accounts
-- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList]
-- Replace '%SystemDrive%\Users' with 'D:\Users' for the 'ProfilesDirectory' key
Create a new account for 'username' with admin privileges which appears as D:\Users\username\...
Log out of the 'Administrator' account (leaving it active and located in the C:\Users folder)
Log into the new 'username' admin account and go about business as usual.
(There will be four additional non-admin accounts created on this machine -- all of them located in the D:\Users folder.)
My question is: Does this seem a valid approach to separating the Users folder from the system drive? Or, am I setting myself up for problems?

Answer:Moving \Users folder ... Is this a reasonable approach?

Pulling my hair out here...

I just got a new monitor, and while installing that accidentally uninstalled the network card. Whoops. Talked to tech support and they said I had to do a reinstall of Windows to get it back, pretty much. So I did, checking "keep files". All went well, until I tried to get into my files. I used to share this computer with others so all of my files under "My Documents" were unshareable under the old system - I'm assuming that's why, when I tried to get to *my* user data, it kept telling me no. After some searching, I found a webpage telling me to reboot in safe mode, go into the folder properties, and reset the owner of those files to my new profile. I did, and everything was restored - except that the files in My Pictures and My Music are all still unaccessible. I can get to them, I can view them, the properties show that they have sizes which seem reasonable for full, normal files - but when I open any of my photos I get nothing - in the Windows Picture and Fax viewer, for instance, I get "no preview available". I've tried renaming the files, moving them, copying them, e-mailing them - nothing. The music files are the same - look normal, but when I try and play them they open up as a 0 second music file.

Greetings,

Right now with the current set of GPOs (like three dozen or so) and configuration it takes approximately 1-3 minutes for users to login. Our old computer system with terminal servers would take 2-3 minutes for users to login, or if about the same time -- there were other issues such as horribly under-specced and overloaded servers with 40 users per terminal server.

With a brand new set of GPOs (about a dozen or less) and OU structure that I carefully made and designed after spending several hours analyzing the existing GPOs and OU structure, it takes on average 16 seconds to login (best being 12 seconds, worst being 22 seconds). This uses VMware View Persona management storing profiles at \\srv-persona1\EXP_Profiles$\%username%. This is currently not being used by our North American environment.

If we use a persistent local profile through VMware View, login time is 2 seconds flat. Our Asian environment of at least 100 users uses this + the brand new set of GPOs and OU structure I created, but without VMware View Persona management (again -- persistent local profile).

At minimum, my supervisor is wanting to get the login time below 10 seconds -- aiming for 2 seconds, while using Persona management. He told me he would like to get rid of all of the GPOs (or as much as possible). I responded saying this is unrealistic and wrong, defeating the purpose of why GPOs as a feature exists and would also result in higher maintenance time and more frequent reprovi... Read more

Hi all,
I am on dial up connection now, i pay $20 a month for unlimited use to another internet provider on top of my normal Telstra bill and its been ok as far as $$ & speed for what i have been using it for, but my new computor will have a DVD & CD in it and i would like to be able to sometimes download movies and songs with it and the dialup i think will be far to slow for that type of use.
Its not only that, but when i use the internet on the same line as phone calls, i am missing a lot of calls and others in the house are getting pretty irrritated with me being always on the net.
I am a bit restricted as far as money goes because i am on a diability pension,
so i am looking for a reasonable priced provider that will suit my needs without going to overboard with the prices and will keep the phone clear for all other normal phone calls.
I have been looking at a few differant deals but i see that if you go over a certain amount of m'bytes they get stuck into you for excess, which looks like a bit of a trap to me.
I would even be happy with normal dialup speeds during the day [ when i can get on it] and downloading stuff at off peak times or during the nights.
Or am i asking for to much for to little?
Thanks in advance for any idea's.
