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 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.

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

Answer:Who do you contact if the DELL India Escalation and Support Team fails to provide support for brand new Laptops

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.

When I installed Win8 on one computer I need a H.P. printer driver. So I went to H.P. support/download did not find the needed driver so I called their Tech. support. A friendly support guy looked at my system and told me my copy of Microsoft Win8 bought at Best Buy was not a legit copy, also my system had been infected and they needed to remove my Win8 clean my system and reinstall Win8. made me a deal of a reduced price of $250US I knew this was not right so I begged them good buy went to Best Buy where I have good friends in the Geek Squad. they got the needed driver and printer works fine.

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? 

Answer:HORRIBLE tech support and warranty support

You do not state which type of warranty you currently have, there are a few which will affect how TS will or can respond. I hope you get this resolved to your satisfaction...

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.

After having been in touch with Dell support for nearly three months, I decided to recount my experiences here, mainly to provide insights for future Dell customers as to what their rights are, and to provide tips on how to effectively contact tech support.
I hope this guide can be of use for people struggling with their purchase as much as I did (and in fact, continue to).
Anyone having further insight to improve this article is welcome to leave notes here, and I will try to incorporate them in an update if deemed relevant.

So Im trying to get Win7 RC1 x64 to work on my laptop with a Radeon x700 in it and can't seem to find any working drivers or "trick" the system into using drivers. Thus I am stuck with the "default graphic card" (or whatevers its called) crap. Everything else works great on the laptop except that.

So has anyone found workarounds to this yet?

Answer:Driver support in Win7 when there is no official driver support???

Have you tried downloading windows updates yet? You should get vidio drivers from there.

Yoga 2 Pro laptop with accidental damage protection and a cracked LCD. I have been trying for days to get hold of someone at lenovo.  Online chat stays open for around 45 minutes, gradually counts down as my place in the queue  gets to the front, and then abruptly ends with the message that no one is available. I have been doing this for hours on a daily basis. I have also emailed Lenovo on the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th January references:KMM60865710V70311L0KMKMM60770722V12356L0KM I am not getting a response from ANY channel, emails are ignored. I tried to go throught the sales channel: Thank you for contacting the Lenovo Online Store.We apologise for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, we are unable toassist you with your query at the Lenovo Online Store.If you have a quality or technical issue with your delivered product orrequire warranty support please contact the Technical and Warranty teamusing the information below. "The info below just guides me back to the page with email support that's been ignored and chat sessions which never conenct to anyone.So as things stand right now I'm on the verge of begining legal action to compensate me for time spent trying to make contact, lost work, and the cost of my extended warranty with accidental damage. I've got no more time left to spend on this.

Not sure who have false information about RAM support for this laptop.By default, it uses 1600MHz CL11 DDR3L RAM (4-8Gb, different brands for variants)I asked from Kingston via email about this, and they answered laptop will support only DDRL3 1600MHz, but then again I went and check Crucial and it show DDR3L 1866MHz is supported!I wanted use HyperX Impact 1866MHz DDR3L 8Gb RAM, but Kingston told that only basic model with 1600MHz is supported.Only differences with basic model (1600MHz) vs HyperX Impact (1866MHz) is different speed, rest is same both even CL11.N4200 processor support DDR3L max at 1866, so it is supported! Memory band 19K max, and Kingston 1866 uses 14K, so should be supported.Maybe someone here have tried 1866 RAM? Any experiences with HyperX Impact or Crucial?

Relevance 24.19% IE9: Windows XP Stymies Widespread Adoption............Microsoft may have a tough time building significant market share for its new Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) browser because eligible users are in the minority.Several analysts agreed that Microsoft has its work cut out for it, at least in the short term, because IE9 won't run on Windows XP, the aged-but-still-dominant operating system.Microsoft omitted the still-popular XP from the supported OS list because, among other things, IE 9 speeds up page rendering and composition by tapping the graphics processor in newer PCs. Windows XP lacks support for the Direct2D API, which IE9 uses to accelerate content rendering.The decision means that only a subset of machines will be able to run IE9, either in its preview or final form, until those systems and Windows XP are replaced by new hardware and Windows 7 .....................Want to try out the BETA version of IE 9?

Alright so my current system is a

Intel Pentium Dual Core E5400 2.7GHz
Geforce 9500 GT
1 Sata
2 Sticks of DDR2 667MHz
I would like to Upgrade to a AMD Phenom X4 9850, with a 450W PSU, (Motherboards are practicably identical).

I already check the extreme PSU calculator but it said only about 275W which makes me a little bit skeptical. So what wold you say?

Answer:Can my PSU support it?

Under load, the Phenom uses 311 watts - 185 watts at idle. Add that to the 9500GT, and you may be over the limit.
But why do you want to "downgrade" from a 2.7GHz CPU to a 2.5GHz CPU. Don't expect too much from the 4 cores because most programs will not be using them. I am very disappointed with my quad processor. My slightly faster duo core is better.

PS: The wattage was measured by a German computer mag

Yes. As long as you have a compatible slot for the card, which these days is going to be a PCIe x16 slot, then a graphics card based on either NVidia or AMD/ATI will work. You just need to ensure that you have enough space in your computer, particularly if the card you are looking at is physically large.

my laptop is soooooooo slow that it takes almost 2 minutes to boot
I am thinking of extending my storage by adding an SSD
BUT I even don't want to lose my data

suggest me a way that I can have my previous HDD and a new SSD(where I will install my os)

My friend was suggesting something about SSHD(solid-state hybrid drive) by Seagate
please comment 
Thank you for your attention

Answer:SSD support

You cannot add an SSD or an SSHD hybrid - you must replace the hard drive.  If you wish to retain the existing drive, you'll need to mount it in a USB external case -- and use it externally.
While a hybrid drive may be somewhat faster than a conventional hard drive, it won't come anywhere near the performance of a native solid state drive.

It is a legitimate company... Value for money is another thing. It depends on what you value and how much money you have.
She has not been "ripped off" but has possibly bought an expensive service, assuming they do actually provide the service. Sales tactics and business ethic are a completely different subject.
Personally, I am totally in support of start-up companies like this. Imagine if these people had turned their attentions to creating malware, and then your family encountered them. It could be a lot worse.

A'ight..I have a 3 year old computer (*cough* Dell *cough)...

if anyone knows anything about dells, it's the fact that they do anything in their power to make it so you can not upgrade their stuff...biggest pain in the butt: PSU. They have a special adapter into the mobo and put the power wires on the wrong side.

Alright...that being said...after 3 years, it's still a decent system (P4 2ghz, 512mb ram), but with a bottleneck of a graphics card (64mb GF3).

Now...I can get a 128mb 9800 pro for pretty cheap, and was going to jump the offer, but my 250w PSU is making me rather wary.

I've heard people running a 9600xt fine on the power supply...

so, should I go for it? I want to make this computer last for another year, and do a full upgrade when I go off to college next fall.

Answer:PSU not being able to support this?

Depends on what you are doing.

I have posted a couple of threads concerning my pc freezing/hanging and I have had some great support from Gongoozler ? thank you again.I have been continuing to contact HP support (by email) attempting to resolve the situation. My computer (bought in January) is so unstable that I have now set up my old one. Each time I contact HP support I go round and round in circles as they provide trouble shooting steps that they are convinced help me. As much as I tell them it does not make any difference. In fact a few have made the situation worse (e.g. when they instructed me to delete windows components and I started loosing drives and programs).I contacted HP again over the last couple of days and in the same email it said they had both resolved the issue and had not ? I feel that they have no idea. From reading this forum and speaking to a few people I have narrowed it down to the memory/RAM (as kindly suggested by Gongoozler and later hinted at by HP themselves) motherboard, CPU or a cooling fault. I posted on their support website ? I was very polite and I described the symptoms and said I was receiving technical support but have yet to resolve it and did anyone know what would be causing it. I also included some suggestions of what it could be based on my research.

Answer:HP Support. What is going on?

Well around I go again. I have just got off a crackly line to from HP Support based somewhere on the moon I think. I explained the problem and asked to have my warranty verified as per the email. I was asked for an explanation of the problem and I also added that PCW have the computer for testing as they thought it was a hardware issue. I also said the previous trouble shooting steps over the last few months did not resolve the issue. I am told I need to be seated on front of the unit to go through some trouble shooting steps ? and to call back when I have the computer! How am I supposed to resolve a hardware issue? In fact, in one of the HP support emails I was asked to reseat the RAM (which is impossible as it is tucked under the HDD) and also to replace the RAM ? with what ? bananas???? Is this the type of thing I should be doing under a manufacturers warranty ? I have never been asked to open up a unit before ? I feel I am really missing something here.I like HP printers but I won?t be buying HP desktops again. I had a Sony Vaio and the support I received was impeccable. When a hardware fault was detected the unit was shipped for repair.

Question: No USB support

OK, I have a user that has deleted every device under USB as a fix to his thumb drives not being recognized. Normally the drivers would reinstall themselves with the next reboot, but he also has installed CA Security Suite and some apps from Advanced System Care (registry cleaner) and god knows what else. I believe that one of these apps are keeping the OS from installing device drivers. I cannot uninstall the apps in Safe or Normal mode with no keyboard or mouse support. System restore points also make no difference. I have also looked at using wmic to uninstall from the command line, but apparently it does not work in W7 Home premium.

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 am just not sure how well they are to work for so figured I would ask the awesome members here on [H]!!!

When I go to the start menu and prompt "Help and Support" nothing happens. I really don't know when this started because I really haven't had a need for this until recently, when I was having some issues with another computer I was working on at the time and needed to access Help and Support. Does any body out there have any ideas with what's going on and is there a way to find out if they can be found or will I have to maybe reload something from my XP disk?

Answer:Help and Support does nothing.

See if this helps:

As a new user of this group can anyone advise me how to recover the Help and Support in Windows XP. If I click on Help and Support in START all I get is a momentry flicker of the egg timer, then nothing. If I look for the Help and Support programme HelpCtr.Exe its there in RegEdit! Something must have disturbed the start process. Any advise would be most welcome.
Regards, Alan.R.(UK)

Answer:XP Help and Support

Hi Alan and to BC.

Hmmm, this is strange. Have you deleted anything lately ?? Maybe in the registry ??

Run "system restore" and try going back to an earlier restore point. Just pick a date when you knew it was working.

Let us know the result.

Good luck.

Question: 32G RAM support?

Hi. I want to know if this laptop supports 2x16G modules or not? I realize that I'll lose warranty if I do it, but ram is more important for me

Answer:32G RAM support?

Officially, no. So you can't rely on me to justify buying 32 gigs. But it is DDR4-2133 and other HP laptops with Skylake processors and DDR4 can take 16 gig modules per slot.

Question: Help & Support

Does anyone know how I get Microsoft help and support back? I used to have it and now I get Hewlet Packard help and support,

Answer:Help & Support

Microsoft Support

Theres a link to it. I really don't understand your question though, is something wrong with your system? When (and how, if possible) did you "lose" MS support?

Have you tried a system restore to a point before you "lost" it?

64-bit versions of Windows do not support 16-bit components, 16-bit processes, or 16-bit applications

Answer:64-bit OS = No 16-bit support

Lol, isnt anything new.
Give us a heads up as to why your wanting to back away from x64 because of this?
What 16bit apps are you trying to run anyways? Games? Emulators work. Also flash games work aswell :P.

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.

I just purchased an ACER with windows 7. It's a 64 bit machine and I need to connect it to my Minolta QMS magicolor 2200 Desklaser. My 2200 works fine with my Toshiba laptop which is running XP. I have contacted Minolta and there is no 64 bit driver planned.

Does anyone know of a 32 bit emulator that I can run under Windows 7 that will let me continue to use this wonderful printer?

Thanks, John

Answer:32 bit support etc....

There isn't any sort of emulator. You are prettymuch stuck; I've had to do a lot of research on that issue and that's just the way MS made Vista/7 x64 work. It will be nice in 10 years when most everything is 64-bit, but sure isn't now.

Have you been able to make it work by just connecting it to your Acer without trying to install drivers from the manufacturer's disk?

If you connect it to your Toshiba and set it up as a shared printer I may have a tip that will work for you. If that is something you wish to try let me know.

i wish for looking an answer,

is my motherboard ASUS P4S333-VM could support both DDRRAM PC2100 256MB and DDRRAM PC2700 512MB ? i afraid it would be not stable while running certain program.

i tried to search for the info, somehow it didn't provide useful info for me. the user manual didn't describe whether could support other type of the DDR RAM, and only shown DDRRAM PC2100 that support the mothorboard.

any comments ?

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.
