Suggest a monitor

Question: Suggest a monitor

Hey guys, I need to buy a Full HD monitor but I seem to be unable to find one that meets my requirements.

All I need is an IPS display with 5 ms response time. And perhaps a glossy display but not too much.

Please help me out guys. I tried search soooo much but didn't find anything.

Preferred Solution: Suggest a monitor

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: Suggest a monitor

What is your overall budget for this monitor? Where will you be purchasing this item (online -or- physical retail store)?

i need an upgrade from the 17inch NOT EVEN FLAT dell monitor they sent me awhile ago. preferably black housing. CRT, not LCD or flat panel. and 19+ inches in size. i tried looking on pricegrabber and pricewatch, but the pitch and max refresh rate confused me. i dont really know what those mean. my price range is probably $100-275 or so, maybe 300 but id rather not.

does brand matter?

thanks!
 

Answer:suggest a monitor for me

Refresh rates should be higher. Ie, 70 sort of sucks, but 85 is good. Dot pitch should be lower. Ie 25 is good. Envision, Viewsonic are a couple of my favorites.

I was wondering if someone could help me choose a good gaming monitor, I have just purchased a 3d ready Asus vg236 but I am going to take it back for a refund because the 3D wasn't what I was expecting. I also want a 26" or higher monitor, which leads me to my first question... Will a 26" monitor be to big if I am sat just a couple of feet away? The one I have at the momment is 23" and seems a bit small as I am used to a 26", but I am just wondering if it is bad for the eyes been so big and close up. Also I would like to know the best brands for gaming monitors. Thankyou!!

Answer:Can anyone suggest a good gaming monitor?

As far as best bang for my buck + quality brand & performance, I went with Samsung because the refresh rate was nice and fast so you dont get the LCD blur in games. Also for personal preference I also went with a standard square 19" screen vs wide screen as for I hate my older games in widescreen mode making everything flat and wide or running the widescreen in square resolution as if it was 15" with black wasted area on left and right of screen. I did however have to pay almost 2 times the cost of a widescreen to get an older style square screen though, which is stupid that they cost so much more, when you would think that with everyone wanting the wide screens ( except for myself ) that there would be an abundance of them to be in check or cheaper than the widescreens. I cant imagine the widescreens being that much cheaper to produce than standard square screen displays. Unless there is a shortage of square screens for people such as myself who still want a square area that is correctly proportioned for older games etc that are coded to run only 800x600 or 1024x768 and no other resolution size.When I saw the price tag 2x a widescreen, I almost bought a used display to save money, but yet again I wanted fast refresh without blur and a display that would last with a warranty. Samsung has a great warranty plan and I use to buy samsung for the business I worked at at my prior job. Out of liek 300 displays we only had 1 drop out, and they were great about the repla...

I have a home built PC with a Gigabyte GA7NNXP motherboard, 2x IDE HDD, CD & DVD drives, Creative sound card, AGP by ATI X1650Pro and 2GB of memory. AS per previous posting I have had some bother with this machine of late. 1st the AGP went down. 2nd it was followed by motherboard, now 3rd it appears that the HDD is on the way out. ( Seatools long test says its Good). But I have had several errors created with programs refusing to work. It demanded that Chkdsk was used, first of 4 times. Before I transfered HDD to my other machine to try and copy the drive. This it would not do, without persistant errors and falling down when copying. It contains about 30GB and when coppied the max copied was 6.85GB. As this was unsucessful I returned to the original machine to run CHKDSK C: /f /r which it did putting right many files. Then I tried repair install. Using the XP disc which only contains SP1. Perhaps should have tried harder to use the "Slipstreamed " disc with SP2 that I have used before. That was good but still didnot get Excel to work. Something not present(I wish I had recorded what ). I had previously upgraded my Office 97 via Microsoft about 3 weeks ago. Was that resposible ? I find it hard to believe that the drive is faulty but everything would point that way. As the faults persist in arriving with no real reason. I should really like to clone the drive onto another empty disc, to save the info and programs, some of which I cannot readily duplicate. I then tried to instal... Read more

Answer:What would you suggest next,?

I would suggest rewriting your post to make it easier to understand. I took one look, and decided I haven't got time to figure out what the problem is. At least use a few paragraph breaks, but also try to be more concise.

Hello,

My mother is having problems with her computer and I am trying to fix it. I believe it is malware/spyware related.

She has a dial up connection. Everytime we dial up not only does the Covad home page pop-up, which is normal, but two other windows pop-up as well. One is from buydomains.com (or net) and the other varies from seeq.com to fastclick.com to some variation of fastclick.com (I think).

Also, upon terminating my connection with the internet a message comes up that asks if we would like to change our home page to such and such home page. Also a new Windows Explorer window pops up. If you click out of the message an error message pops up, which must be clicked out of, as well as the afore mentioned window.

I did all of the steps in the "Read Me First Asking For Support..." link. I've used Ad-Aware SE, CCleaner, Spybot, SpywareBlaster, Avert Stinger, CWShredder, Kill2me, about:Buster, ASquared, and AntiVir Personal Edition. I also ran Trend Micro and Symantec Security Check. All those listed in the steps I did as specified. Nothing has worked.

I did this all about a week ago.

I am perplexed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The computer is running Windows 98se with all updates, the most current Windows explorer, and DirectX 9.0c

thanks
 

Answer:Can anyone suggest anything?

Ok, some more info:

Some of the pages that pop up at the time a connection is made are: media50.fastclick.net, seeq.com, and buydomains.com.

When I disconnect the message asks if I would like to make my homepage "www.business1.com/home" - I think I copied it correctly.

Well, once again, any help would be appreciated.

Should I run hijackthis or the one that searches the ADS? and post logs from those?

thanks
mike

I am currently running XP and my daughter accidently clicked on the virus pop up. I was able to restore to last good configuration and run malwarebytes and found 14 viruses and fixed. I then logged back on and tried to run spybot, avg and avast and none of them would run as the .exe file had been corrupted.

I want it for use with desktops and a program called connectify that allows one to use you desktop as a impromptu Accesspoint or adhock network device.

Ideas?

Hi Lens Pirate! Sorry this response is delayed, hopefully you've already found a solution but if not...

This list has a few options for USB wireless network adapters that have been tested and certified 'Compatible with Windows 7' (both 32- and 64-bit) by Microsoft. They're listed in no particular order, so you might want to narrow it down further by reading individual product reviews on a third party retailer's website. Good luck!

Hi all

I hope that admin will allow this to run for a while. I love Windows 7 and have just sold my motherboard, CPU and RAM last night, so today is upgrade day. The situation is that I would like some advice on what to upgrade to. I currently have an extra Intel D965LT motherboard at home but I am unsure if I should use it and go for a higher end Core 2 Duo CPU or if I should buy an entry level Core 2 Duo, but then buy a motherboard that supports Quad Processors. Also, I am unsure how the Intel board will support W7 as looking at their Bios updates it is not showing anything for Vista or W7.

All suggestions will be noted.

Thanks All

Answer:New CPU, what would you suggest.

core2 duos work great with windows 7. Seriously fast. I wouldn't go lower end, middle to high would be better - you don't want to go low and regret doing it.
As for bios, I'm sure it wouldn't need an update to support windows 7.

I'm planning to build a spare rig from old parts:
- Intel Pentium E5200 2.5GHz cpu
- Biostar G31M+ LGA775 motherboard
- 2x 1GB DDR2-800 ram
- WD 80GB SATA hdd

WinXP will definitely run fast on it. But I'm thinking of Ubuntu too. I've heard Linux has lower system requirements than M$ Windows. How true is this? Will Ubuntu run faster than XP on this rig?

Alternate is to go through the hassle to build a hackintosh. I believe this is the toughest but I do heard nice story about how smooth OS X runs on old hardware.

The main usage of this rig is basic internet surfing, or probably just scanning my thumbdrive for viruses/worms in case my main gaming rig (runs on Win10) fails to detect it.

Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Which would you suggest

Gaming is all about the graphics card and unfortunately on the Dell Aurora 4 machine you specify I see no mention of which graphics card you have selected, but it does use a fantastic processor.
The ATI Radeon HD 7950 3Gb is certainly a really good gaming graphics card but personally I would prefer the Intel over the AMD processor.
I'm not a gamer but perhaps this will spark off some more suggestions from others.

Hey everybody! I'm buying a new PC in a few days, I just wanted to throw this out there in case I was making some bad decisions. I'm not a genius when it comes to hardware, but I've done a lot of research on this one. Here's what I'm thinking:

Processor: Intel Core 2 Q6600 Quad-Core
Memory: 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz - 2 DIMMs
Hard Drive: 320GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s Hard Drive (7200RPM)
OPT Drive: 16X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) w/double layer write
Monitor: 19 inch Widescreen Digital Flat Panel
Video Card: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB Superclocked

I know some people might criticize my choice of hard drive, but I've been living with 80 GiB for a long time and never maxed it out. Not to mention it's easily upgraded. I plan on using it for games, Compiz Fusion, and Maya / Blender 3D stuff. This is going to be for the most part pre-built, I don't have the know-how to build it myself. I'll also let you know that I'm on a budget of about 1.5K

A couple of quick questions - I don't really like Vista, but I'd prefer to not have to upgrade in the future. Is there any compelling reason to go with XP/Vista? Security is not an issue here, nor is eye candy. I will use Linux for pretty much everything but games and 3D.

Also - do you think the Quad core will be more supported in the future? Otherwise, I'll probably get it anyways for EXTREME multitasking

I value your opinions. Y... Read more

Answer:New PC - Any changes you suggest?

Make sure you get a quality power supply that will handle the load you will be throwing at it. A quality 500 watt unit would be a minimum.

Multicore is the wave of the future so you should be safe in going with a quad right now. 320GB is a decent amount of HDD space, don't worry about that. You might want to consider DDR2 800 instead of 667, especially for gaming and 3D apps as there really isn't much price difference. Just get Vista Home Premium and be done with it. XP Pro is about the same price.

I would like to add a viable sound card and speaker sys to my computer (Dell 4600) I have plenty of RAM and sufficient hard drive.. Which sound card would be suitable? Also which speaker system? High volume (wattage) is not imperative. I will be listening mostly to bluegrass music from the web(not from a CD ). But will also (more important to me) recording with a mic (thru an amp) my voice with a guitar to makes sound files to send to my kids and other relatives. I am using Audacity to record and import to wav file and sending via email. Now for the $ thing. Can I keep it below $100.00? I'm looking for the cheapest way to achieve the sound I hope to get. The current card I have is the system sound card that came with the computer (not too great). It seems not to pick up my voice and putting it on the recording with the desired volume over the guitar (acoustic guitar). Any suggesting beyond forgetting the entire project. Thanx to one and all for any feedback.

The sound card i highly recommend is sound blaster live 5.1 you can get them for under $50.00 and they have good sound quality plus they do have microphone inputs and line inputs besides speaker outputs. just check around the web or check your local computer parts store.

It is a good system, but I am looking for a better MoBo and perhaps changing over to a P4 800 mhz FSB CPU. Anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do for a MoBo/CPU combo? (for around 500 or less)

Thanks
 

Answer:Suggest a CPU/MoBo please

I would suggest sticking with AMD and going for an Athlon 64 939 with 1mb L2 cache. You can easily get a rock-solid NForce-4 Motherboard and that cpu for far less than $500.


Here are some decent NF4 motherboards:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131524
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813131517

And the A64:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103494
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103539


If you REALLY want to go Intel, I would suggest getting an LGA775 motherboard. Such as:

Intel D945GNTKLR


And getting a dual-core CPU such as the P4 830 or 840


You can get those for under $500 as wel.

Hi

I used the default BIOS settings.
I inserted the Windows XP cd in tray.
Manage to format the harddrive, and copy the innstalation files.
The system reboots, and the Windows Logo appears for some seconds.
Then the screen is blank. The harddrive you can hear working for some minutes and then stops.
The monitor remains blank.
I have to force the machine to restart (not possible on keyboard).

New hardware:
Motherboard: Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
CPU: AMD64 2.2Ghz +3500
Memory: Corsair XMS C25 Kit 2 x 512MB - CL 2.5
Power: 430W PSU.

Old/used hardware:
1 harddisk 7200RPM from year 2000. Seagate.
PCI Graphic card 16 Mb or less memory
Do I have to something in BIOS to be able to install Windows XP?

I tried to install Linux, and I tried to run a "live" operating-system from a CD, but always t! he same happens: the screen turns blank before OS fully loads (the monitor turns blank when changing resolution and frequency) . The monitor LED always remains green, this means that it recieves signal.

Could it be the Video card having to little memory?

I ran diagnostics to test memory, CPU, harddrive and all turned out to be in perfect state.
I set the PCI clock sync mode to 33.33 but no difference.

But I've discovered something more:
when trying to load a Live-OS from a CD I can see the the monitor turns blank ( monitor Led remains green )when a command is started, a command

Question: Suggest a Utility?

Hi, all - I have a cable-modem and Comcast broadband service.
My connection is erratic at best - it always has been. Getting servicemen out to the site is a nightmare. You have to make an appointment, miss work, and the guys they send out do nothing but inspect the situation. Some days later the actual workmen may or may not come out and may or may not do anything. My connection will work for a week, then the same thing starts all over.
They tell me everything is okay when they are out here.

This is interfering with my work. I sprung for the cable because I need it and have no DSL where I live.

Can anyone recommend a small utility that can reside on my desktop that will show me when I have internet connection and when I don't? Performance Monitor is too cumbersome and resource-hungry. (I have XP Pro, BTW). If the utility could log connectivity, even better. I'm often connected for a couple hours, then it goes off. Resetting the modem works sometimes, but it's two flights down - and should I really be having to do that? Is that what $50/month gets me? Plus, it only works sometimes.

I have no patience with Event Viewer, either. I just need to be able to walk away from my computer and know my Web connection persists, and if not, I need a record of when it dies. Also, if I am downloading a large file and not surfing, I need to be alerted that I'm offline. Otherwise, hours can go by and I can be sitting there assuming the DL is proceeding when it has termina... Read more

Most cable modems store a log internally that will show if the problem is on the cable side of the modem. What modem do you have?

Hey

I've just noticed that I have hardly any Anti-virus/spyware programs - I have Windows Defender, and Spybot - search and destory.

What sort of programs would you suggest to me to protect my computer from virus' and spyware or is what I have at the moment perfectly fine?

Thanks in advance for any help given.

Answer:What Programs Would You Suggest?

Hi, according to your list there, you don't have any anti-virus installed. If you're looking for a free program there are several good ones you can look into. Avira and Avast are two of the best free ones. (Only install one anti-virus on your machine at a time.) I would recommend installing SpywareBlaster which blocks certain things from ever getting on your computer, but doesn't need to be run in real-time. As far as scanning anti-spyware applications I would suggest adding SuperAntiSpyware and/or Malwarebytes' Antimalware. Make sure you run the AV you choose in real-time along with one of the anti-spyware (malware) programs' real-time protection if you aren't already. For more choices you may wish to refer to this list: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html If you would like some programs that require payment those could be suggested, as well.

Alternatively, since that board uses DDR2 (and you already have DDR3), take a look at this: http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/prod...px?pid=3756#ov Again, it uses Realtek audio.

Hi All.

I am so sorry for being a pain, but I am trying to rid my computer of malware, and was following the instructions well until almost at the bottom of the sheet of instructions and was told to back up my files onto a dvd. Okay, I chose the free Vista program suggested here and proceeded to follow instructions to back up. I was told the dvd needed formatting first, so pressed format, and that was almost 3 hours ago. It is still trying to format and warning me not to remove disc or turn computer off. I am sure something must be wrong.

Hey Guys,

Can you guys give me a rough component list of things you would choose for a setup like this?

Also, I am technologically advanced, but have not built a computer myself. So, what other components will I need to pick up besides these?

Thank you for your time!
 

Answer:Can someone suggest some components for a PC (under $800)

Nothing that I can think of to be honest. All a computer needs to run is RAM, a CPU, the Videocard, a PSU, and the obvious things such as case, motherboard and - as to install drivers/OSs and such - a discdrive and harddrive.

I recently started using this computer again (like a few hours ago actually) since it crashed, I already have ZA Firewall Pro, TweakNow RegCleaner, Spyware Blaster, SB S&D, RegScrubXP, CCleaner. I was wanting some opinions/advice on what you think would be the 'best' anti-virus to use, I was using AVG on the other computer. Do you think I should have any other type of "registry cleaners"? Maybe get rid of the one(s) that I have? What do YOU think I should have on here to keep my computer running as smoothly as possible? Any comments would be appreciated!
 

Answer:What Programs Would You Suggest?!

Some other anti-virus software you could use are:

Avast! Home Edition
AntiVir Personal Edition

But remember to only install/run one anti-virus at a time.

Some registry cleaners I use are:

RegSeeker
Registry Mechanic

Hi,
I would like to buy a Win 8 tablet. The main use will be: to navigate, mails, see some tv from streaming and play. I would like to play some games like civ 5 and games that are adapted to touch controls.
I have 2 small children and I would like to use the tablet to have more mobility
Many thanks and sorry for my english!

Answer:suggest me a tablet

Well to play games like civ 5 u will need a tablet that runs the full windows os. I say the surface pro line of tablets are ur best bet. I have a surface pro 2 and play games like skyrim, borderlands 2 on it and it is a great tablet but can get expensive. The pro 2 tablets start at $899 us dollars, not sure where u are from

I am a die hard fan of WLM, its my favorite messenger, but I feel it does need some improvements, I have stated some of improvement that WLM can have below whats your opinion on this.
1. WLM saves our Chat history in our local Hard disk and not on there server, so if in case you format your HDD (which I do very frequently ) your Chat history also get deleted and there is no way to get it back. (If there is please let me know).
2. Also if you compare it with GTalk than you will find that Gtalk is superior in four aspects- Connection Time - There is no proof of it, neither I can support my argument with any resource, but I felt in years I am talking on that experience (and yeah I did this crazy thing before posting this thread I took a stop watch and counted how much seconds does GTalk and WLM takes to start, My results are WLM - 6sec Gtalk-2sec).
So what I am saying in short is WLM take long time to Connect (not too long but its still long) Low Connection - I have experience it and also complaint about it, when internet connection is low WLM sings me out, on the other hand GTalk won't. Display - In GTalk there is really nice display Ping Pong, which I feel should be added in WLM also, see below image History Again- I really like this feature of Gtalk of saving Chat History in GMail, I thing this should also be added in WLM
What do you guys feel about it or I am the only Crazy one!

Answer:Suggest improvements in WLM

One more: Email ID: I don't like typing my full email Id while signing in WLM, I just want to type my username and WLM should take care of rest. This facility is available in every Messenger, WLM should have this too

Answer:Which printer would you suggest?

You mention "you and your work associate"....I assume this is for a business. Are you wanting a color printer, b/w or color laser-jet.....whats your budget?

If you just need a b/w laser-jet. I would recommend the HP 8150dn. If you just need a desk-jet. Look at the HP all in one deals. Copier, Printer and scanner. You can get one of them for well under $200US.

EDIT: In my personal experience....I would stay away from Lexmark!

Earlier my gf asked me to install Kazaa on my system for her. Now I have no p2p software at all on here, and am a wary of putting something unknown on my computer. Is Kazaa the best option as far as for use and lack of spyware, etc, or should I try something else?

TIA
 

Answer:Suggest a P2P program.

Unless they went legit and changed it, Kazaa used to be horrible and was absolutely filled with spyware, so people used Kazaa Lite instead.

I would recommend checking out Ares instead of either of those though.

Having another odd thing or two happen after an OS reinstall, I'm thinking there may be some hardware problems lurking in the woodpile...

While it could be memory, I want to check the HDD first. It would be nice to check in non-destructively, although that's not a really big issue since it's a fresh install, with just a few addons (AVG, SpyBot, Mozillas, OOo), so...

Suggestions, anyone?
