P8800 cpu @ 1066Mhz fsb
4gb ddr2 ram @ 800Mhz
500gb 7200rpm HD
1gb graphics w/ 1080p screen

Sony :: RAM Limit/upgrade SZ 38GP
I just bought SZ38GP, English XP Pro but I think it is Asian model, similar to European 5 series, the CPU is T7200, and GPU the 7xxx. SZ are perfect for my DJ work, and secondary notebook, I was using the SZ1 till now and wanted to get the best there is from this series, possibly fastest CPU but no 8xxx Nvidia. It came with single 1G RAM, I could put another 1G from my old SZ but would rather have 3G total= add single 2G chip. I remember that SZ1 had 2G RAM limit but cannot find out about the SZ38GP C. Will I be able to use 3G with it ?

Dell :: M1730 X9000 CPU Bottleneck?
so story is, i jump on a new game called Demigod, cpu running at 2.8ghz , after about 5-10mins of playing, i notice both my cores are running at 100% and the game lags like crazy, frame rate goes down really bad.

so i figure, hm, cpu bottleneck for a game.. strange.. lets have some overclock fun - i go ahead and set my x9000 to 3.4ghz, now the game runs great, my cpu cores dont reach 100% and the frame rate is great, all is good and great. only problem with running at 3.4ghz is that after about 30mins-1hr of playing, my m1730 powers down due to what i can assume to be overheating

Acer :: Aspire 5315 RAM Limit
The instruction booklet says there is a 2GB limit, and that I can only use two 1GBs. That sucks because it comes with two 512MBs. Is this true, or could I go buy a 2GB DDR2 and replace one of the 512MBs? It's a Acer Aspire 5315-2153.

Dell :: DDR2 PC4200 533MHz RAM
I just checked newegg and it looks like you can get 2gb (2x1gb) for like $55? This would be for my 9300. When did prices dip this low? How much longer do you think it will last (will they rise back up?)

Dell :: Does The XPS M1710 Hardware (Motherboard/Chipset) Support 4GB DDR2 Ram
I have a XPS M1710 2.2 C2D, 2GB with Windows XP Professional 32bit, and I am planning on getting a 4GB OCZ PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz Ram (OCZ2M8004GK) for my laptop.

My questions is whether or not the XPS M1710 hardware (motherboard/chipset) will actually support/make use of the 4GB memory.

The manual says the M1710 will take up to 4GB of memory, but some people say it will not (regardless of the OS 32 or 64bits).

I know that 32bits OS (Vista, XP, etc) will only see about 3.25 GB of the 4GB, but I have read that applications such as game and VMware will actually support and use (if necessary) all the 4GB of ram. Is that true?

What if the M1710 hardware does not support the 4GB then no applications will support it?

I also know that the M1710 is only supposed to handle up to DDR2 667mhz, but i will be getting the DDR2 800mhz $10 bucks cheaper than the 667mhz and I read that memory with a higher frequency than you system can handle will usually give you a lower CAS latency(timing) speed, so why not

Sony :: VAIO Z690 RAM Speed And CPU-Z Question
I just received my z690 cto and I'm doing all the tests I can think of to check that everything is working properly.
I have one question about the memory.

I ordered it with 4GB ddr3 working at 1066Mhz and when I run the program cpuz the memory is recognized as DDR3 PC3-8500F but the "DRAM Frequency" is reported as 532 Mhz (instead of 1066).

Can anyone tell me if it is normal or if it should report 1066?

Sony :: SZ1XPHD Replacement 120gb Size Limit
Still owning an old Sony SZ1XP laptop and was wondering if anyone have ever replaced the stock HD with a newer 7200 RPM HD

Main question i would like to ask if i am limited to a certain size of 7200 RPM HD

For example: in this site [url]
It says the following "up to a 120GB 5400RPM hard drive"

Does this mean i can only fit a harddrive of max. 120gb in the laptop?

otherwise that it is possible to put a bigger sized hd

Sony :: Vaio SRcan't Create Recovery Discs
One of my users has a Vaio SR and is trying to create recovery discs (DVDs) using Sony's tool. Sony's application fails at 24% every time with the following error:

"The disc could not be created.: Missing source folder or files."

It's running Vista and is pretty new, although they repartitioned the drive recently have installed a lot of additional software and may have uninstalled some Sony software. I'm thinking these could be the cause.

If not, any recommendations for third party software that provide similar functionality (full system backup images to disc)?

HP/Compaq :: Upgrade CPU, RAM, HD For My DV9305tx
I was wondering what is the best CPU that I am able to upgrade to with my HP DV9305tx, T7200? And also what RAM is recommended? As I've still only got the stock 2GB.. Same goes with the hard drives. I'm guessing that's about all that I can upgrade?

Even though this laptop has suffered from heat issues, it's been a great work companion for the last few years, and is perfect for my design work, so I really don't want to upgrade to a new laptop, but I DO need a little more speed if it's possible.

Acer :: Aspire 5920-6864 CPU And Ram Upgrade
I also purchased the 5920 from Wal-Mart about 6 months ago. About 2 months ago my 160Gig HDD just failed on me and I had to send it to Texas to have it repaired. What I need to know is this: I just bought Assasin's Creed and my not-so brand new lappy wont play it. It loads through the intro and then fails. I realize that my CPU is 1.66Ghz and the requirements for the game is 1.9 or better. Still, I thought I might get lucky. Stupid me. So, I've been reading these forums and upgrading my CPU from my T5450( 1.6)to the T8300 (2.4). Now I also have 3GB DDR2 Ram installed and want to move to 4, so do I need to buy new ram that runs at 800mhz to reflect the changes I've made to my cpu? Or should I just take out a 1GB ram and put in a 2GB of the same kind already in it? It's the Samsung DDR SDRam 1x1 and 1x2.

HP/Compaq :: 8GB 800 MHz RAM And X9100 CPU In HDX 16
I have upgraded my HDX 16 to 8 GB PC2 6400S 800 Mhz RAM and X9100 CPU. I also have Seagate 320 GB 7200 RPM ASG Hard drive.

I was going to try the QX9300 but I was told that QX9300 will not work in a HDX 16.

It looks like the GPU is the bottleneck in this laptop. Iím running DOXís 185.20 and when I try to overclock the GPU for anythingh over 574 MHz Core Clock or 535 Mhz Memory Clock, the screen starts freezing.

Let me also say that Iím running BIOS F13-A if that has anything to do with it.

I have read some users overclocking up to 660 Mhz Core Clock in HDX 16. How do you do that?

Dell :: 3.25 Gb Limit, Even With 64-bit OS
I just installed my 4 gb of RAM in my Inspiron 9400, fully aware and knowing in advance that I won't be able to use more than 3.25 of it with my Vista Ultimate 64-bit OS...

My question is: WHY? Is it because the Bios can't address the memory in 64-bit? Just for curiosity, is there a way to make the OS bypass the BIOS (If it's the cause) and fully use the 4 GB?

Dell :: Overclocking Max Limit
I have a e1705 Geforce go 7900gs oc'd to 450/600. Also I have the power supply that is included with the laptop 90watts. I have seen people here in forums that o'cd there card up to 600 core or more. I flashed my rom using the 375/507 to unlock my bios and then i use rivatuner to overclock my video card coz I want to know the limit of my card. And it reached 455/600 so i underclock it to 450 just for safe distance.

Now, I am using ntune to o'c my card and there is no testing whether it will work with the core I specified so I assume again that its 450/600.

My questions will be,

1. What is the max core/mem overclock that is safe for my 90 watts power supply w/o increasing the voltage to 1.24volts?

2. I create a profile in ntune that I enable the overclock (450/600) everytime I will play 3d games and I get it back (370/507) . Is that ok? Will it harm my videocard?

I got a rev 1 card. I am using a windows vista w/ dell performance driver, 2gb ram and 1.73ghz core duo cpu. Weird I got 152 increase in score in 2005 3dmark when using vista to xp . My score is 7196. And also I don't want to use nibitor to o'cd my card .

Apple :: Bootcamp, Can't Create A New Partition
I want to install windows by Bootcamp. But I've found some problem about a partition on my HDD.

My MacbookPro HDD has 27 GB free space remain. And it's has only 1 partition on HDD. I try to create a new partition, 10-15 GB on my HDD for Bootcamp. I just want to run windows for some program, some games. But it always show "verification failed", "don't have enough space", "partition failed"...etc. on bootcamp and disk utility

I've seen some thread about a partition for bootcamp problem on some website. Some solution such as

1. use iDefrag for HDD then try to create a new partition.

2. Shrink your HDD space (disk utility) , revert , then try to create a new partition by Bootcamp.

3. Try to remove some files, that size is over 1 GB, then try to make a new partition.

4. Backup your harddrive, reinstall then try to create a new partition (I don't want to do this)...

Acer :: Does The Aspire 5735-733G32Mn Have A 3gb Limit
I've recently posted a question here Total Memory in task manager incorrect after upgrade to 4gb Aspire 5735 where I received some great help. However I've done a bit more research and I'm starting to fear my notebook may be limited to 3gb by the bios/chipset for some reason. I have just upgraded it from 3gb to 4gb. The bios shows 4gb as the installed amount but memtest in dos mode only shows 3000mb total as does windows task manager.

So it appears the notebook detects the 4gb installed ram but only allocated 3gb.

My question is does anyone know if acer has limited this notebook to 3gb total and if there are any suggestions on getting around this limit?

HP/Compaq :: Unable To Create Recovery Disk On New DV5
Just got my new HP Pavillion dv5-1000 laptop and I'm very pleased with it so far, apart from one problem.

The machine came without any backup disks, which seems to be a standard HP thing. So I've tried to create my own disk using the Recovery Manager software. It goes through the first part of the process collecting files, but when it reaches 100% I get an error message saying that the files are more than 0mb and it can't continue.

I've tried using a different blank DVD but get the same message.

It's a pain, and is spoiling my enjoyment of an otherwise excellent machine. If anyone can suggest a way around this I'd be grateful.

I've tried this fix:unable to burn Recovery DVD but the software doesn't install.

Sony :: New Z (i5) CPU Vs. Current Z (C2D) CPU

Current Z P8600:

Max TDP: 25 W
2 Cores @ 2400 MHz
Fully threaded application on both cores:
2.4Ghz * 4 Ops/Clock * 2 Cores = 19.2 GFLOP
Single threaded application (very common) on ONE core:
2.4Ghz * 4 Ops/Clock * 1 Cores = 9.6 GFLOPS
(GFLOPS is a great baseline on how fast is the CPU rating--giga floating point operations per second)


The new Z apparently has (at least confirmed so far) an Core i5-520M:...............

Apple :: Software To Create Some Type Of Dvd With Music/photos And Video
We have a bunch of photos and 2 hours of video. I'm searching for the best software to create some type of dvd with music/photos and video. I've done one of that kind (without videos though) with iDVD last year and the result was great I'd say. A couple of chapters with different photos and songs. If iDVD is a good option, can I add videos in the presentation easily? My video is uncut for now, all in one piece. If there a software to bring it from the camera to the computer and cut parts I don't want, make chapters (smaller movies) and put em in the presentation with the photos (with music).

Acer :: Aspire 9410-4933 With 2x2GB DDR2
I see that thread BIOS Update V1.24: 4GB RAM in 9410? was already locked (yes, I missed it by more than a year).

I'm guessing there are still users out there using their Acer Aspire 9410 laptops.

I recently purchased two 2GB DDR2 modules. They both work fine individually and I've tested using memtest86+. When I plug both modules in, the BIOS only sees 3067MB. The Phoenix BIOS in my Acer Aspire 9410-4933 is version 1.24. I would expect that the BIOS sees all 4GB.

Is there any Phoenix BIOS newer than 1.24 that I can use for my Acer Aspire 9410-4933?

I've read that there may be hidden BIOS settings and I'm wondering if anybody can point me to a URL that describes how to un-hide those settings?

Lastly: according to the aforementioned locked thread, the BIOS is the one limiting how much memory is addressable. Is there any way to hack around that?

Dell :: DDR2 Vs. DDR3 In M4400 / Hard Drive Order
I did some research on the Dell M4400 I ordered a few days ago. I got the minimum amount of Dell memory they would sell me of 1GB. I did the same with the hard drive (80GB/5400RPM) knowing I could get it a lot cheaper on my own.

Hard Drive
I've found a hard drive (Fujitsu MHZ2320BJ-G2 320GB 7200 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive - OEM) and a laptop drive comparison/ review in Laptop Magazine. Here is the hard drive listed above @ $69.00 for 320GB/7200RPM. [url]. I'll try it however I have been a WD guy for my desktop.

I have been pricing DDR2 and DDR3 and found other posts saying DDR3 wasn't worth it and will not work on this forum at this thread HERE and will not work in the M4400 however this review says it will HERE

The memory I found HERE is priced @ $57.99 Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Laptop Memory Model CT2KIT25664BC1067 - Retail


"As a matter of fact the Montevina platform would in general also support DDR3 RAM modules. According to Dell, the standard equipment does not include DDR3 modules, because they still cost much and the availability is still limited while the performance gain of the new chips is rather small. But, they do not exclude that they will offer them later."

I found a nice deal over for this memory - yes, I know it's crazy but that was the cheapest place I found, they offered 15% off + FREE Next Business Day @ DHL, which sounds pretty good for me.

I'm going from 2x1GB DDR2 533Mhz to a 2x2GB OCZ DDR2 800Mhz@667Mhz with lifetime warranty for as low as $44 each module. I think will be great upgrade since my 2GB always wasn't enough!
