GPU Support

Question: GPU Support

I have an Alienware Aurora desktop from 2,010 that has an Alienware 4VWF2 motherboard in it. I also have 3 monitors connected to it, each with a maximum supported resolution of 2,560 pixels wide by 1,080 pixels high (no 4K here), although, I did see some similarly sized monitors to the ones that I have that are said to support the 4K resolution. (Although, since I only recently received my current monitors, it might be a while before I upgrade again. But, that might also depend on the answer to my question.) Alright, on to the question. What are the specifications of the motherboard mentioned above? I am specifically curious about its GPU support. Although, other information (e.g., CPU support) would be nice to know. I want to use a spanned desktop that utilizes the full resolution of all of my monitors. Currently, I have the desktop simply extended (not spanned through the Catalyst Control Center (or whatever Nvidia's equivalent is, as I have not dealt with Nvidia's software in a long time), as I prefer to have it) across the 3 displays. But, 2 of them are running at a resolution of only 1,920 pixels wide by 1,080 pixels high while the third runs at the full 2,560 pixels wide by 1,080 pixels high. Therefore, I am considering upgrading my GPU (also per suggestion [ ]). But, I do not know what GPU models are supported by the motherboard. I replaced the GPU fan once. But, only the fan was replaced, not the card itself. The current GPU installed is the AMD Radeon HD 5870 (the original card, but with a replaced fan, since the original fan had died).

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i currently have a dell Inspiron 5558 laptop for over an year now but the screen stop working over 6 months ago, i looked up the warranty information at the time of screen stopped working and was re-assured that it showed February 18, 2017 therefore i did not consider that it is very urgent to call tech support since i have other laptops. today when i call the support service, i was informed that product was not registered and i have to pay $233 to replace the LCD screen, they still argued that dell warranty website showed the correct information but when i looked it up, the website still displays the same.  did anyone else encounter this issue??
below is the warranty service which is still display at this time

Answer:Dell Warranty is reflecting incorrect data as per technical support and support manager

Was the system purchased direct from Dell, or at retail - or on EBay, Amazon, etc?

 I bought TPS230U in may2013, and one monthe ago, the laptop just turned off by itself and wont turn on anymore. I had tried troubleshoop refresh and resetting options but it doesnt work.
My warranty certificate is still valid for itnernational support (now I live in  Brazil), so that, I called Brazilīs support (My laptop ID is: Type 3347 2GU S/N xxxxxxx 13/02.
At the first time I contacted by phone, the attendant asked me to (once again) turn off the laptop  and call back again. Well, I did it, adn (of course) it didnt work. So I called once again. The second the new clerk said I should buy a cd or dvd ( which could not be via USB stick ) , download from other computer and copy  an image file  that lenovo would understand the problem . I explained that I had not cd to record that moment. But he was very rude, and told me that it the  support goes to my house and concludes that there is a software problem and not hardwa, I was supposed to pay for the visit. So, I went to a store and bought a recordable CD , recorded the ISO file and got home to insert it into the laptop and....for my surprise,  my laptop doenst have any  entry for CD ! I feel that lenovo has been really disrespectfull with me and all I want is to have a simple support to my laptop, but I still couldnt have. Pleaase let me know how can I solve this problem before my waranty term expires!!!

I have a T430s laptop and it is less than 6 months old. It starting getting blue screens within a month of purchasing it. Technical support has been helpless in trying to fix the laptop. First, tech support told me to turn update my computer daily. Then another tech support employee told me to turn OFF my auto updates. This did nothing and over a few weeks the blue screens progressively got worse. Next, tech support told me to run a diagnostic on my computer which turned up nothing. Then, they tried giving me recovery discs and a new hard drive. After that failed they took it in to replace the system board which made the blue screens worse. Then they sent me MORE recovery CDs to try to fix the problem and that also made the blue screens worse. I called tech support after this and they said they would send in a request for a replacement laptop. I was told I would hear from someone in a couple days. FIVE days later I got a called from someone asking if I wanted a replacement and I said yes. Then I was told I had to wait two more business days to get contacted about it. Another 3-4 business days later, someone called me to tell me that they would NOT be replacing the laptop despite the fact tech support could not fix the laptop. After calling tech support once again, I was told that they wanted me to send in my laptop again for up to 7 business days! This is completely unacceptable. I have had problems with this laptop almost the entire time I have owned it and no one knows... Read more

I have just sent a thinkpad back for repair for the first time in over 20 years of owning  Thinkpad.  I have had 8 thinkpad  series laptops in my time as well as a few desktops and now lenovo phones. I am absolutely horrified with the diabolical Thinkpad support. This is meant to be business level support. I feel like I am phoning up Curry's.  Laptop sent back with hard disk in it and I am being told now that it "turned up without a hard disk in it". Now undercurrent of me lying. Original problem had not been assessed and I still don't have my laptop back after 3 weeks. Customer service agents just tell you anything they want to get you off the phone. I suppose all things come to an end but my loyalty to the Thinkpad brand is probably over now.  I am sure I am not the first. Has anyone else come across this?

Answer:Terrible Thinkpad Support Premium Prices for Sub-Standard Support. Business users avoid now.

Oh, yes. I'm going through something similar over the last few weeks. Here is my thread on it.Been updating it every week. All I ever get is blown off no matter who I talk to. Good luck getting your situation resolved. I'm guessing it was sent to their depot in Tennessee?

We are Dell resellers and had placed an order for 43 Laptops - Dell Latitude 3560 with Dell on 13th June, 2016. We delivered them to our customer on Friday 17th June, 2016. On Monday 20th June we discovered that all the Laptops are faulty and are not functioning properly. They have not been able to use a single system due to touchpad issues in the entire lot
We have made innumerable calls Dell to resolve the problem, but the team is unable to identify and rectify the problem. 
We have spoken to our partner account manager, regional account manager, Service Specialist and Escalation Team, requesting them to provide us with a solution at the earliest as their work is getting hampered. Our customer has to deploy the same by 1st July however they do not have any Dell Laptops functioning correctly.  
How do we escalate this to the Dell management and get a replacement ASAP

Someone told me in another thread, and I also read here, that

All Wireless N routers support dual-band 802.11nClick to expand...

implying that any wireless N router can use the 5 GHz band as well as the 2.4 GHz band. Isn't that the implication?

Then why is it that when I browse routers, only some of them list both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency, while others list only 2.4 in the specs? I want to switch my network over to 5 GHz in order to get away from all the interference I'm getting, as discussed in this thread.

So what's the real answer? Will any cheap "wireless N" router be able to do 5 GHz, (e.g. this one?) or do I need a more expensive dual band one?

Answer:Confused about router support for 5 GHz band. All wireless N routers support it??

No. The 802.11n standard supports 5GHz, but does not require it. Now if a device was 802.11ac, it will have a 5GHz radio since that standard only works on that freq.

Hello there, I'm interested in finding out more about the X220 - In particular the actual bandwidth available to the i7 Version of the X220 with it's USB 3 port. I'd like to be able to use the Black Magic Design Intensity Shuttle with this laptop, however it requires a Super Speed USB 3.0 Port. It's common for laptops to only use a single PCIe lane interconnect, giving the USB3 Port only 2.5gbps of available bandwidth. This won't be enough to allow that capture card to work  A similar situation also exists for the Expresscard slot - To be able to support Expresscard v2.0, It needs to provide 5gbps (2x PCIe v1 lanes). If it does this, It's possible I can buy an USB 3 Expresscard which will have enough bandwidth to use the card. In short I would like to know if the super speed USB 3 port can actually function at the intended speed, and is not crippled to half rate.

I paid for 3 years of support and accidental damage in home support. Together, it cost around $400 on my new XPS laptop. Afew months after I bought XPS 15 9560, I pulled out the charging cord, and a round piece of plastic that was inside the port came out too.
I called technical support at 5 pm EST, and received someone in Southern India. I gave them my information, and they confirmed that I had service. They then fought with me for 15 minutes, telling me I could NOT have any in home service. The representative, who kept calling me by my first name (no respect)  said I had to send my laptop to a depot in Texas for them to identify the issue. Finally, after I insisted, the representative, S. Sirya Kiran, FINALLY allowed me to get in home support IF I sent him photos of the damage. I did. Finally, I received an email telling me to select a date for service, which I did, 12/18/17 between 9 am and 1:00 pm .
I took time off and waited. No one came by 11:30, or called. So I contacted World Wide Tech Services. They then told me they didn't have enough techs to handle my area, so they were NOT coming. I asked why no one gave me the courtesy of a phone call and they had no answer. They said a new company, Unisys, would contact me. (I doubt they ever will.)
Is this what Dell gives people for their money as far as support and accidental damage in home service for $400? This is an outrage.

This is a General question regarding the end of support for XP. I realise at the end date the computer should be backed up in case you have to format the disc at any time after the end of the support period.

My question is does the built in Windows back up in XP when backing up the system include the installed updates? Or is it best to use third party software to do this.


Answer:[SOLVED] End ofThis is a general question regarding the end of support for XP support

I believe Windows just backs up your personal files and won't do the entire OS. You'll need a 3rd party program to do the entire HDD.

Also you really should think about upgrading to Windows 7. Staying on XP after the end support date is not recommended as you will lose security updates from Microsoft as well as patches.

So I am sitting here on my MacBook Pro which in my opinion does not have any wireless issues whatsoever, it works. I still own this ThinkPad with a garbage wireless card, and I feasted my eyes on an Intel 7260 but lo and behold, it isn't on the whitelist! Scouring eBay and Amazon I did find a FRU, but would the number of that FRU be the same on the Hardware list? Lets see, well I cannot even find it. All I get are Page Not Found errors which to me is a hilarious joke of Lenovo's support. What does this mean for me? Is my X230 at a very very unnecessary end of life? Should I like, fork out £1400 for an "upgraded" model that probably won't fix most of my problems? My problems is money and saving money. Should i now look elsewhere? No, because I'd rather keep my money to actually FIX my current laptop's problems (the N2200 is a garbage card and would like to replace it with something that's up to date to todays technology but that isn't happening by the sounds of it) I am frustrated with my current laptop's problems and it's having a large effect on my studies. And possibly you can also lose customers by inadequate non-existent support and failure to give us the freedom to actually let us upgrade for those who do. For those who don't, more like.

I have a Thinkpad T450s and it is just over a year old. It still has 3 more years of warranty. Edit: Warranty type: TPJ (This product has a four year limited warranty which includes a warranty upgrade. This product is entitled to parts and labor and is entitled to Depot service).Recently the lenovo solution center gave an critical error for the HDD (Read test failure) and I submitted an online request reporting it. Without even sending me an email or contacting me, they sent me a new part and gave me zero information about it. Apparently every other person can replace a HDD now!  I have created 3 more cases calling their tech support to send the laptop for a depo repair. Everytime the request is rejected 'at the vendor' according to the customer care. Neither the customer care people or tech support can tell me why. Every time they create a new case, tell me I will receive a depo bag nect day, and I dont receive anything, have to call depo customer care and on hold for minimum 40 minutes, only to hear that the case has been rejected they dont know why.One tech support told me now I have to send the new part back before creating a new case, otherwise it will be rejected again. but he does not know how I can send the new part back. The return label sent to me was for the faulty HDD.Can anyone help? What is the point of paying for warranty if I receive this type of service?

Dell Support "Assist" just ran without giving me an option to stop, pause, or control in anyway.  It was using nearly all computer resources (I could barely save the word document I had open at the time).  This isn't "assist" more like computer take over.

How can I control the S. "Assist"?  How can I adjust the time between it's runs (currently it looks like monthly)?  After finishing it's scan or whatever it finally closed (cuz it wouldn't close the 20 times or so I clicked the "X").  I then opened it, looking for some results of the scan, and found none.  How can I view results?

Right now, seems like worthless bloatware.

I purchased the Lenovo brand because it offered many more features then the competitors within the price range we needed.  My son needed it for school so of course we went with the i7 processor because we were told it was the best and wanted to ensure we didn't have an outdated computer within the next few years when our other children would begin to use it.
Our computer is not charging and I have contacted every department I could think of and was referred to some others along the way.  I am very stressed and upset on how my problem/question is being handled.  I was hoping to get everything resolved before school starts again on Jan 3rd so my son doesn't fall behind. 
The history of my purchase:
I purchased my lenovo ideapad y560 in 2010.  Upon arrival it did not work and I had to send it back for a replacement (this order# 2FL8RF  S/N ******** was ordered 9/13/2011 shipped 9/17/2011 a return authorization generated 9/23/2011 and you received the unit back on 10/23-10/24/2011).
 My new one came and the start date of warranty was 10/6/2010.  A few months in I called in again for the blue system screen and was told I had to restore my computer with the restore button which I did even though I lost all of my work and applications. 
I called in on Friday December 23,2011 to technical support because my computer was 100% functioning and it wouldn't charge.  The computer then turned off due to non... Read more

Question: IT support

I was at party last night and got talking to a friend of the host.She is about to set up a business from home and needs some help to complete a wireless network.She's particularly concerned about security, backing up data, using outlook on a number of machines and dealing with error messages if they occur.In can do most of this but have zero time especially as its a business and she would need quick responces to any issues.Can anyone recommend someone who provides IT support for clients working from home? If so what sort of costs should she expect?She's based in Chester BTW.ThanksSteve

Answer:IT support

Has she tried to yell or yellow pages for this type of business. Wherever she goes, it is going to cost, either a friends time or a commercial activity and I think that she should clarify her mind on what her requirements are and then get recommends where to go. Before leaping in, she should get quotes. It might be worth considering paying for an hour or so of consultancy with a techie to write up a spec of what she must have and 'wouldn't it be nice ifs'

I get a message that says Windows cannot start Help and Support because a system service is not running. To fix this problem start the service " Help and Support" I can still get to the restore to an earlier state from the AWC program. Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Help And Support Is Gone


You can manually start and stop services using the Computer Management console.

What you want to do:
Start >> Right-click My Computer >> Select Manage
Start >> Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Computer Management

This will bring up the Computer Management console.

You want to navigate to the Services and Applications node in the left hand pane. Click on the + sign to expand the node and select Services. Click on anything in the right hand pane and navigate to the Help and Support service. Under normal circumstances, this service is started automatically as a Local System service. Right-click it to bring up the shortcut menu and choose Properties.

Once you are in the Properties applet for the Help and Support service, check to see what the Startup type: pull-down menu shows. Most likely it is probably showing "manual". You can use the pull-down menu to change it to "automatic" and it will start up automatically when you restart your system - unless there is another program that is preventing this. What you are really most interested in doing is starting the service manually if it is not starting up.

Under Service Status you can click Start.

Post back if this does not work for you.

Internet Provider is Mcafee's? Do you mean you switched ISP's and it came with mcafee's?

GO into the Mcafee's firewall settings and have it allow IE9.

Question: apt X support

I'm trying to determine whether my laptop can take advantage of the aptX codec when using Bluetooth.  According to Microsoft, Windows 10 now supports the aptX codec. (It looks like I can't embed the link, but a document on the Microsoft website states the preceding.) However, a page on Dell's website asserts the following:
"APTX is support is limited to Dell Latitude and Precision systems equipped with the Intel 8260 wireless card and the Windows 8.1 64-bit Operating System.
Dell has no APTX support for Windows 7, 10 or Ubuntu Linux"
What does it mean that Dell won't support the capability even though Window 10 does?  And if not, does it mean that my Dell (with Windows 10) can't use apt X under any circumstances?

Pardon me if the answer is glaringly obvious, and thank you to all who answer!


Answer:apt X support

Like most things Qualcomm, AptX comes with a licensing fee to the system vendor.  No doubt the price-sensitive consumer market (XPS/Inspiron/Latitude) won't stand for a price increase to cover Qualcomm's license fee.  The business market (Precision/Latitude) has a higher margin and can.

While trying to fix my computer these last few weeks, with the help and support I received here.
I have a question, but I don't know if it has merit.
I seem to remember somewhere along, in through the many postings, someone said something about being unsupported, and I believe that my pc may be just that. After running D Ban I knew I would be destroying my windows 7. But I was led to believe, I think, that I could get everything back to the way it was before, by having my 25 digit code that referenced my copy of windows.
Since then I have never been asked or directed to enter this number anywhere.
I think in my head that I am unsupported, because when I am asked by windows or Dell i can't remember which at this time, do I want to search for the drivers I need to download, and it comes back unable to do this. And the same if I choose to upgrade a driver too. I have Internet connection so it is not that.
Can I enter my 25 digit number in to my computer some way or some how and be supported, or am not right about any of thiis.
My reason for thinking this is, every time I go back to a restore point I have to download all my drivers manually, it seems they should be there to install just by saing yes I want to install my drivers. I also have a disk of utilities and drivers, the only disc that came with my computer, but it seems my pc will not download my drivers from this disk. Do I have to set it up in Bios to have this disk to open and install, every time I put the disk i... Read more


The 25 digit number referred to would be your product key which you would have entered when you installed Windows. Windows then activates it online. It usually takes about 30 days to activate. If it's been longer and Windows hasn't told you there was a problem with activation you should be fine there. From my experience it isn't uncommon for drivers to fail to install properly. The drivers on the disk are probably outdated. I'd suggest going to the manufacturer's webpage for your MB, and other devises and download the newest copies. It would also be a good idea to go into Device Manager in the Control panel and uninstall the old drivers before installing the new to prevent conflicts. I hop this answers your questions and gets it solved. Let us know if you need more or this isn't what you were asking.

Question: PC Support

I do pc support as a side job as-well, sorry if this is not the place to post it. But recently i got a job for someone sending me 10 computers at once. I dont know what i could get in trouble for or sued, but what is good for them to sign as a disclaimer, what should i write as one, i need to start doing this....? have any of you had this issue or needed to do something like this?

Answer:PC Support

Good question...

Are they sending you the computers via mail, or is it going to be dropped off by your client?

I would write a disclaimer along the lines of what work exactly, is going to be done to the systems.

For example:
For each of the systems delivered to x, the following work will be completed, and verified by y
1. Clean format, deletion of all previous data
2. Case internals dusted out with compressed air
3. Fresh copy of Windows X installed with license sticker on each system
4. x Software installed
5. y Software installed
6. System burn-in test for 24 hours


Hope that helps or gets you started in the right direction

edit: it might also help if you had a sheet with a checklist for each system to help keep yourself organized and to verify that each system has been completed. It's also very professional I think.

Question: W98 WME Support

I see W98 WME support is ending 11/7/06 i can understand W98 as it's 8 years old but WME is only 6 years old, nothing said about W2000 that to is 6 years old and WXP thats 5 years old,if that is the case then W2000 and WXP must be going to share the same fate within 2 years i hope this isn't a microsoft ploy to force people to use Vista i don't think older computers will cope to well with this OS.

Answer:W98 WME Support

Hi phil46 wouldnt have thought it was a ploy by Bill and co still an awful lot of people favour W98 I still have one works just fine and I have an W95 that again is ok for its specs I also have 1 Wxp pro and 2 Wxp home all are ok well not bad, but I see where you are coming from my 95 and 98 are not on my home network so updates are not an issue, but it is sad that peeos with perfectly working W98 will no longer have any support but it was on the cards.

Symantec will not official be supporting IE 9 or FF 4 for at least 6 weeks. Mid May they claim. What gives?

Answer:No Support for IE 9 or FF 4.0

Yes i to think that's completely, outrageous Symantec is usually on top of things not sure why they were not on top of this. Unless, they are really working hard on Norton Internet Security 2012 *joke*

Question: Win 2K HT Support

Ok. Not quite sure where to post this, but does anyone know if M$ are going to include support for hyper threading in a future service pack or update for windows 2000?


Answer:Win 2K HT Support

With 'general' support scheduled to end in March 2005, I can't imagine Microsoft would make a change such as adding support for Hyper-threading (IMHO). Click

"Oh, it is just a Software Issue. Let me help you update the Drivers..."
This is the fix from 'Customer Support'.
In March, I bought a $1300 XPS 15, because the reviews were generally good, and good specs with a killer video card.
It came via delivery, I took it out, looked amazing, charged it for a few hours, turned it on and........BIOS ERROR. Right out of the box, there was an Error. It stated 'Invalid Time\Date Configuration'.
Oh. I worried, but then thought, all I need to do is set the BIOS time\date. No big deal.But it wouldn't allow me to SAVE CHANGES.
Whatever. Maybe and 'Update' will fix it.
It begins to reboot, then powers down completly.
I press the Power Button, and it begins to boot (keyboard lights-up), then a CLICK of the HD, and it powers down.
This happens 2 more times, then it finall boots into : BIOS ERROR. INVALID TIME\DATE.
I go through this again, and it FINALLY BOOTS!
It's fast, I set all my preferences, especially Power Management (SLEEP when lid is closed), as I like my computers to be ready whenever.
After using it for a bit, I close the lid.
I come back to it a few hours later, pop the lid, and the power button and keyboard are lit, but nothing on the screen.
Son of a....
I hold the power button to do a Hard Reboot. Which it does.......
And boots into a BIOS ERROR screen.
Wash, Rinse, Repeat.
I used to work Tech Support, so I did bear with this problem fo... Read more

Question: win 7 support

i have installed win 7 on my laptop LENOVO Z570. does win 7 make computer or laptop slow? Because after installing win 7 i found my pc has become slow. i have aslo heard that some lenovo laptop dont support win 7 ?

Answer:win 7 support

Hello nileshmkul,

After completing the Win7 installation, (including all Drivers and Updates), did you carry out a Disc Clean Up and a Defrag of the HDD?

Windows? (all versions) by its very nature is extremely lazy when it comes to installations; it always leaves 'junk' and temporary files on the computer; these can be the main culprit of the cause of 'slow' operating.

Your Lenovo? Z570 does support Windows?7.
Carry out the suggested tasks and post back with the results.

Kind Regards,

I very recently purchased this product to replace my aging HP s5310f slimline.  The new system has the 6th gen i7-6700 8 core CPU and 16GB RAM.  My old one has a 2 core CPU and 8 GB RAM so I figured the new one would be blazingly faster.The new one came with Windows 10 installed but that was fine because I had been running Windows 10 for a year on the old one quite successfully.  But much to my surpise the new one ran and runs like a snail in Alaska in the wintertime.  We're talking clicking on the file-explorer icon and waiting easily 10-15 SECONDS to get the first screen displayed.  And everything I tried was the same.   Very shortly after setting this system up M$ released their annivesary update which I applied.  If anything it ran even slower.  Because i do programming fo a living I was forced to continue to use my older HP for my projects while still reseaching the slowness of the new one.  Research showed that M$ has many compaints of slowness and last week they release an "emergency fix" to supposedly correct this.   Again, nothing improved.   So my only option is/was to install Windows 7 from my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 DVD.   I changed my UEFI to legacy to support booting from a DVD and restarting.  I am given the option to boot from DVD and the Windows 7 setup program begins.  And the very first prompt that appears is the End User License Agreement (EULA) which one MUST check and click the NEXT but...
