    reinstall OS after changing RAM?

    I believe he may be slightly confused by other posts if he thinks most are suggesting you reinstall your OS after a RAM swap. It is usually necessary to reinstall your OS after a motherboard swap, but a RAM swap is a very basic procedure, there is absolutely no need to reinstall your OS afterwards.

    Dual Channel with different speed RAM?

    Can't seem to get that link to load. :S Anyways, it's generally ill advised to mix memory, but you really shouldn't run into problems. Note that it will also not only use the slower speed, but the slower timings as well. Make sure it's set to a voltage that both DIMMs will operate at and you...

    Long POST after BSOD? (Probably memory related)

    Thread title reflects my main concern, but I had a few questions actually. I received some new hardware for Christmas, however I've run in to some issues. At first I couldn't get the system to POST, and couldn't get anything on screen. The post lights indicated a memory failure. I tried...

    The official "clean desktop" club.

    So yeah, I only have a folder on it right now for a companie's website I'm working on, half the time it's completely clean, the other half I might have 67543347657635 files on it. I see my computer desktop like a real life desktop, a work space, not something to trash with shortcuts and whatnot :p

    No sound when encoding AVIs

    Hello all, I have an issue with SUPER. I have a 2GB AVI file that I'd like to compress so I can youtube it. To do this, I'm using SUPER. Back when I had winXP, SUPER worked great for everything I used it for. However on Vista when I try to encode it as an AVI file, I have no sound, and when...

    XP Pro 64 bit and no 64 bit drivers - anything I can do?

    I couldn't find a proper driver at first either. What I did (vista 64 + Zyxel m-202) for my adapter is first I hooked up my laptop and used ICS to get an internet connection, then used windows update to get the proper driver. Hope this helps!

    How do I turn off Vsync ? (8800GT Nvidia Drivers )

    I'm surprised you haven't gotten an answer yet. Assuming you aren't running anyything like nvtray, right click the desktop and go to the nvidia control panel. Make sure it's set to advanced settings. Go to manage 3d settings, and scroll down to the very bottom setting. Set it to force off.

    So half the state of Florida to get a 8800GT ...lol

    I'm pretty sure it's because he was comparing DX10 to DX9. And we all know how well DX10 is performing right now :P

    can't boot from disk?

    Try to set it up to where the BIOS boots from it first and see if that helps. What exactly happens when you try to boot from it?

    can't boot from disk?

    What exactly are you trying to boot from? If you burnt it yourself, it may be a bad burn, try burning it again at a slower speed and possibly a different brand of CDs.

    can't boot from disk?

    When you first turn your PC on, look down at the bottom of the screen, you should see something that says "Hit the del key to enter setup" or "hit F2 to enter BIOS" or something like that. Hit the key it tells you too and you'll come up to a blue screen (probably anyways, it may be gray or...

    Razer RMAs

    But at the same time, they emailed you letting you know that they got it though, right? I'm just worried because I never heard anything from them, despite my email being include in the letter, plus I figured they would have it on file anyways. As far as that letter goes, I had to include a...

    Razer RMAs

    I was just wondering if perhaps anyone who has experience RMAing with Razer could clear up my worries. I had a pair of razer barracuda HP-1 headphones just die completely on me randomly, on Christmas day.... heh, anyways, after exchanging emails with razer support, they gave me an RMA number...

    4gigs, 3.5 shows.... 64-bit OS?

    I had tried disabling just about anything with word "memory" in it actually, then enabled everything I disabled, nothing worked :P Anyways, when I first built the system and installed Vista, I had 2 1GB DIMMS. I then bought a second kit right after Christmas, exact same model, so that I had...

    4gigs, 3.5 shows.... 64-bit OS?

    Yes, it's actually ctrl + F1, and really all that uncovers is timing options. Thanks for the suggestion though. I don't feel it's a hardware issue actually, as the BIOS shows the proper amount, 4028MB. Or 4294967296K during post :P

    8800GTS and TV-out

    Thanks for your reply :) I'm not entirely sure what you've asked, I've tried it on another system and it worked. That was a few days ago, the system used winxp with a 9600XT and a P4-3GHz. However as of today that system quit POSTing. I'll work on it later on if necessary. I don't have...

    8800GTS and TV-out

    Ok, so everybody knows nVidia didn't have the best drivers in Vista, especially in the TV-out department. Well, in Vista, XP and kubuntu, I never could get TV-out to work. At all. I've searched google, searched nad posted at the nvidia forums, still don't have a solution. My TV is a piece of...

    Problem with new video card...

    the megs of vRAM you have is not incredibly important, its just one of the many factors along with gpu/mem clocks and pipelines that determine how well a card performs. Actually, 512MB of vRAM is only beneficial if you plan to run really high resos. As for the text.... hmmmm, turn cleartype...

    NTFS to FAT32 to NTFS

    Actually, recovery of the data itself is not my #1 priority. I just need it to not only get reversed back to NTFS, but also recover the filenames, the conversion shortened them all and this will more than likely mess all my other proggies up.

    1 7900GT vs 2 SLI 7900GT?

    See for yourself! http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=383&card2=384 Though a GTX will cost you about 474.99 (lowest price on newegg) 2x GTs = 539.98 (lowest price at the egg) price/performance. The choice is yours!

    1 7900GT vs 2 SLI 7900GT?

    heh. Actually, I would buy a single 7900GTX if I were you. Though if those faulty 7900GTs problems only happen in small numbers, then sure, get a 7900GT or 2 and see how they work out for you. Those X1900XTXs are pretty sexy </ ATi patriotism>

    1 7900GT vs 2 SLI 7900GT?

    long answer short: Yes, you will. But only at high resolutions. At lower resolutions, you won't notice a difference. Though i would advise against a 7900GT ATM, from all the horror stories i've heard.

    Emergency

    Could be. Bring it down to the BARE MINIMUM. One stick RAM, card, and cpu. Disconnect all other PCI deviced, drives, even the PSU while your at it =P. See if there is a signal then.
