Freezing


A computer/notebook/laptop can freeze due to a lot of reasons. Here are few noteworthy ones. Check them and see if they help, if not then post a little detail of when it freezes more etc:

a) Antivirus programs have a great tendency of eating up memory quite quickly. So, get a lightweight antivirus program like Microsoft Security Essentials or Avast etc.

b) If you have a low RAM then it is recommended that you run very few applications at the background. Avoid running any unnecessary applications.

c) If you have a desktop set with lots of transitions and effects it can cause huge RAM and often results in freezing of system.

d) Your O/S could be a problem too. If the above things doesn't help try resetting/re-installing the O/S and hopefully it shall help you a lot.

e) Check your system for any viral activities. You can perform an online scan using many free online scanners like Trend Micro etc.

Hard reset of my hp ipaq 510 i forgot my password


s.gifs.gifHP iPAQ 500 Voice Messenger Series - Resetting the Device
Sometimes you need to reset your iPAQ if, for example, it is not responding to your pressing a button or your tapping the screen.There are two types of resets.
  • Soft Reset - A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any programs or saved data.
  • Factory or Hard Reset - A factory or hard reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores your iPAQ to factory settings.

Performing a Soft ResetPerform a normal or soft reset to stop all running applications, to restart the iPAQ after installing a new application, or if the iPAQ locks up.CAUTION:Make sure to close all running applications before performing a soft reset, since a soft reset erases all unsaved data in such applications.Perform a soft reset using one of these two options.
  • Turn off the iPAQ by holding down the End key.c01118005.jpg1 - End Key
  • Remove the battery of your iPAQ.

Performing a Factory or Hard ResetPerform a factory or hard reset when there is a need to clear all settings, programs, and data from the RAM.CAUTION:Performing a hard reset will return the iPAQ to its default settings and it loses all information (files and settings, among others) that is not recorded in the ROM. Back up all important information or data before performing a hard reset.Follow these steps to perform a hard reset and return your iPAQ to factory settings.
  1. Turn off your iPAQ by holding down the End key.
  2. Then hold down the center of the 4-Way Navigation key and turn on the iPAQ again while continuing to do so.c01118006.jpg1 - 4-Way Navigation Key2 - End Key
  3. A confirmation screen opens asking whether you want to perform a hard reset or not. SelectYes . The iPAQ will reboot with its original factory settings.
NOTE:The applications and data present on your iPAQ before performing the hard reset can be reinstalled by synchronizing your iPAQ with a computer using ActiveSync/WMDC (Windows Mobile Device Center).NOTE:If you don't want the iPAQ playing a tune after you turn it on, create a new text document and save the document as StartUp.wav. Replace this new document with the file on your device.

I have a Foxconn n15235 motherboard and i have installed a 2 gig ddr2 memory but it only registers as 1 gig,could you please help...


how many modules compatible are the ram modules the same type/brand some motherboards will not accept more than one type
also make sure the ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets


The purpose of RAM is to allow your CPU faster access to programs. If your CPU had to go to the Hard Drive anytime it wanted a program your computer would run very, very slowly. So for example, when you boot your system up a significant ammount of ram is designated to your devices needed to boot up your operating system video graphics

The primary role of RAM is to copy the operating system in to itself and then load the Operating System so that you can work RAM is only used to run any desktop base applications, such as games, Microsoft Word applications, games such as desktop games and pc games, and browser based so any programs you have loading at start up will be needed by computers RAM

My compaq presario v5000 runs so slow and i wanted to return it to factory settings to see if that helps thank you.


Just do the following steps and your issue will be resolved.


1) Delete all unwanted data from Drive C.


2) Delete all data that you have copied from Drive C to External HDD


3) Open My computer and go to Tools---> Folder Options---->Click on View Tab----> Check 'Show hidden files and folders' and select OK.


4) Go to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp and Delete everything that you see inside Temp Folder


5) Go to C:\WINDOWS\ here you will find folders like $hf_mig$, here you will have to Delete all the folders starting and ending with $ sign.


6) Empty Recycle bin and restart the PC

There are many things that might cause your PC to run slowly or restart at time and then. It could be a fragmented disk; fragmented registry; a virus, Trojan, or spy ware; high CPU and/or utilization due to too many programs running; high disk I/O; or something else.

To check your CPU and memory utilization, run Task Manager. You can start Task Manager by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then clicking on the Task Manager Button. In Task manager, click on the Performance tab and check CPU Usage and PF Usage. PF Usage is an indicator of memory usage. If one or both of these is high, click on the Processes tab, and sort the columns by CPU or Memory to see what processes are consuming the resource. If you are not sure what the process "Image name" is for, Google the name and you should find what the process is for.

If your CPU and memory usage are reasonable, then you may have a different issue. Even if you running anti-virus software, it may be beneficial to scan your PC with another scanner to check for viruses. No anti-virus software is 100% perfect at catching everything. Here are a few good free online virus scanners that you can run to check your PC:

http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm

http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner

http://www.pandasecurity.com/homeusers/solutions/activescan/

An excellent free utility for overall system maintenance is Advanced System Care Free ( http://download.cnet.com/advanced-systemcare-free/3000-2086_4-10407614 .html ). I use this utility on a regular basis.

You should always run anti-virus software. There are several very good, free, anti-virus products available. One good source to read editor and user reviews, and safely download anti-virus software, is http://download.cnet.com -- search for free antivirus software. In addition to the reviews, you can see how many people are downloading the software, which is another good indicator of how popular it is.

I have used AVG Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avg-anti-virus-free/3000-2239_4-10320142.html ) , and Avast Free ( http://download.cnet.com/avast-free-antivirus/3000-2239_4-10019223.htm l ). Both are very good, and completely free. At present I am using Avast on all of my home computers.

I have heard good things about Avira AntiVir Free ( http://download.cnet.com/Avira-AntiVir-Personal-Free-Antivirus/3000-22 39_4-10322935.html ), and it has good ratings, but I have not personally tried it.

In addition to Avast or one of the other free anti-virus software packages, I also run Ad-Aware ( http://download.cnet.com/ad-aware-free-internet/3000-8022_4-10045910.h tml ). Ad-Aware is a free anti-malware, anti-spyware package.

Help Finding The Best CPU For P4SD-VX Motherboard.


Brilliant, I commend you! I've posted using the simple CPU-Z program to several people on here, and they just don't seem to get it!

Sony doesn't release detailed info on their motherboards, for the most part. Just the usual generic info.

2.6 Volts?
Open CPU-Z again. CPU tab.
Let's see if you have this processor.
Name: Pentium 4 HT 2.6C
Code Name: Northwood
Package: Socket 478
Technology: 130nm
Core Speed: 2600.0MHz (Fluctuates when the computer is running)
Multiplier: 13X (Fluctuates when the computer is running. When the Core Speed fluctuates enough, the multiplier changes to match)

Bus Speed: 200.0MHz
Rated FSB: 800.0MHz
Voltage: 1.475 to 1.525 V (Fluctuates)

Click on the Mainboard tab.
Is the motherboard chipset Intel 865PE?
[Chipset: Intel i865PE
Southbridge: ICH5 or ICH5R
Motherboard made by Asus?

It may not have an Auto CPU feature in BIOS Setup then. Means you cannot just put any old processor in there. Have you been into your BIOS Setup yet?

SPD stands for Serial Presence Detect. This is used by BIOS to automatically detect what ram memory is being used, and the ram memory timings.

JEDEC was Joint Electron Device Engineering Council/s. Changed to JEDEC Solid State Technology Association.

One of the things they have done is to set standards for Ram Memory.
Voltages used and ram timings.
JEDEC 1 is the ram memory module, in Slot 1 on your computer.
(May state DIMM 1 on the motherboard)
JEDEC 2 is the ram memory module, (Stick) in Slot 2.

JEDEC set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram ram memory, at 2.5 Volts. Your computer has DDR Sdram ram memory in it.
The default voltage setting from the factory will be 2.5 volts for your computer.

Reset BIOS to default settings.

Check CPU Temperature, Prescott CPUs run hot.

If board is under 3 years old and was a retail box package, it will be under warranty, contact Intel.
