Question by hashmi121 | last reply
I want to know because i have both of these, and my Turion 64 runs pretty hot, so if anyone can help me out here, it would be appreciated. they are both 1.9GHz dual cores, both 64 bit capable. What i want to know is, does the Athlon run cooler, and is there anything that puts it above the Turion?

I'm helping my friend do some upgrades on his computer, it's a Compaq Presario SR2034NX desktop. I'm wondering if it will support a dual core processor or not. According to HP, it doesn't, but looking around on the internet, I've seen quite a few people have upgraded to dual cores. However, there's some minor differences with this particular motherboard. It seems that there are actually two different types of motherboards with the same model number from Asus (A8M2N-LA). On the HP site they have different HP model numbers (a more advanced board - the NodusM3-GL8E, and the one I have - the Naos-GL6; both with the same A8M2N-LA number for Asus) It appears that the NodusM3-GL8E supports all sorts of fun things like 8 GiB of DDR2 800 RAM and dual cores up the wazoo. However, the Naos-GL6 looks like a stripped down version of the NodusM3-GL8E (two less RAM sockets, etc.), so it might not support a dual core. I'd like to know before purchasing, since Newegg won't accept processor returns for a refund. Also, 800 Mhz RAM would be nice to have, HP says it only supports 667 Mhz RAM but other people have put 800 Mhz in with no issues. Does anyone know if my friend's mobo will support a dual core and 800 Mhz RAM?

Hi, I am relatively new to building custom computers. However, I feel like I know enough to actually build one. The first problem I'm having though is finding a good motherboard. I won't be doing a whole lot of hard core gaming, but probably a little(Halo, Fallout 3/New Vegas, MW2, etc...). So I would say I'd need the following specs(minimum, more is usually better): 4GB DDR3 RAM PCI Slot(s) 3 SATA devices(2 HDDs, 1 Disk Drive) 500GB HDD(s) AMD AM3 Athlon II x2 445 VGA & DVI I think I've found a good mobo to fit this bill: GIGABYTE GA-785GMT-USB3 Can anyone vouch for it, or offer a better suggestion?

I was wondering if anyone knows if the same principles involved in nf119's instructable are applicable to attempting to electroplate something with gold.Also, would the pins of an old CPU (in this case, an old Athlon Thunderbird 1ghz) be made of pure gold that can be used to electroplate?Thanks!

I have a very old desktop about 7 years old and its in a very bad condition and can be barely used. It was a home computer before this and now not many people use it anymore. So I would like to convert it to a media PC to attach it to my TV. I just want a simple media PC that I can watch streams and watch downloaded movies in good quality(Full HD) and just simple PC uses. So I was thinking of upgrading my old PC to a media PC by changing some parts like the graphic cards and all. Bare in mind this is my first time attempting to build a computer so im not very knowledgeable on it. However, I do know the basics of each components in the PC. These are the specs of my old pc ;- -AMD Athlon(tm) 64x3 Dual Core Processor 4200 + 2.2GHz -3.00 GB RAM -NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE -250GB HDD harddisk -32-bit Operating System When I opened up the PC it was in a bad condition and full of dust. When I took out the heat sink, the CPU was stuck to it so I think I damaged the pins of the CPU when I took it out.( But I wanted to change that anyway) By the looks of it there is barely anything I can salvage other than the case. I have attach some photos to show you the condition of it. I would like to ask some help on some links or advice on is it possible to salvage anything(motherboard maybe) and what components should I be looking at for the uses I want it to carry out. I know a lot of people will suggest to just buy a brand new pre-builld desktop but I really want to try to build this for the experience so I can build a better PC next time in the future. Thank you very much, Every answer is much appreciated.
Question by KhayhenS | last reply
I've had a little experience with the security system setup from my last post, but I moved, and I'm going to try something different. Should I use Ubuntu Desktop or Ubuntu Server for webcam monitoring? I'm a Windows user who would like to eventually learn how to use Linux as well as i can use Windows. But in the meantime, I'm about to set up webcam monitoring in my house. I've got a few USB webcams, and one LinkSys wireless webcam. I'll obtain the monitoring software from a third party. I need an operating system that can handle processing four video streams as well as running the security software. (I'm also going to use remote admin software so that I can have a "headless" setup.) I'm currently running WinXP Pro (Corporate) on a machine with an A.M.D. Athlon rated at 1.02 Ghz with 2GB RAM. A friend of mine recommended that I use Ubuntu Linux, which I think is a great idea. The problem is that I don't know if I should use the Desktop or Server edition of Ubuntu. Also, since the rest of my network (and family members) uses Windows, the remote admin software I use either has to be cross-platform, or be Linux compatible with a web-interface. So should I use Ubuntu Server or Ubuntu Desktop? Or should I stick with Windows? Also, as far as the webcam security software is concerned, I need software that handles multiple streams and has options for motion detection, record on event, notification through email, and a web interface (HTTP server). Also, FTP options would be nice to have, but are not required. Any suggestions for this? (Win?/*nix)

Question by andreblue
Hello peeps. It is me again, I have a couple questions and I'm hoping that someone pays attention to it. 1. I tried to get my p2 (pentium 2) going so I could eventually use it as a media server/download server (it is fast when you get a few hundred mb of ram and 80 gig hd in there at 467mhz). Well it seems to have a habbit of rebooting itself when you think "aww I can relax now, I have windows installed and everything setup" then it "BOOSH" restarts and comes up with a lovely lovely lovely (I could go on like this seeing as I've reinstalled windows xp on here 10+ times, yes I sit in the corner from time to time and just shiver) error: System Disk Error, press ctrl+alt+del (never could find that key..). Somehow this clever ass machine has found a way to corrupt it's own partition. I have ram for it that once did work in there too, but now when I put it in now, it doesn't boot, hangs and beeps. So should I just trade it for another (I know a guy that runs a comp shop with quite a few oldies laying around, perhaps I could score a p3) or is there something I can do to get it up again, my parents paid around $2000 for it when it came out (apparently 32mb ram, 4mb agp card, 6 gig hd) is top of the line in 1999 :-/ ) and I wan't to "whip" a few more tb of data out of it. That being said,..on to the next question 2. I just upgraded/installed new software for my ibm thinkpad r51. Medly little ibm has all it's own network utilities and whatnot (but when you don't use it, it's hell frozen over). Well before the upgrading (just like upgrading software from say 3.5 to 4.1 or the such) I could see the ibm from my ibook g4, and share files, but it was nearly 1 way as the thinkpad couldn't see the mac for some ungodly reason. After install, nothing at all. I'm rather annoyed and having read article after article of documentation for microsoft and other sites, it seems as simple as just being connected to the same AP (yes I'm using wireless and btw, my router doesn't support cross networkings, so I can't share between wireless computers and those on ethernet, not a big problem so I'll move on)... and have them all on the same workgroup, which even if they aren't you're supposed to still be able to network and it appears to be just as simple as that. Apparently not. Why can't my windows pc's see each other on the wireless and I can't even see the thinkpad on my ibook anymore. One more people 3. I decided to hook my other desktop machine (Athlon xp 1800+), but unfortunatly it has a fan the size of my foot and a 8000rpm fan attached to it, while it keeps it almost down to 20 C, it makes so much noise you can hear it anywhere in the house, could I put a control knob or the such in line? Thanks for your help if anyone chooses to be a big help and give me a hand with a few things and I promise I won't bug again. I just have had these few things I need to fix for such a long time but no one wants to help me, I'll admit, it's not something anyone really wants to get into,..networking and whatnot, but if someone can just sit down with me, possibly on msn so I can try things out basically in real time, then I would be forever greatfull. -Punkguyta

I seem to be fighting a loosing battle with my network, things just never work like they're supposed to.For example, sometimes I have to reinstall my network printer on both my laptop and my ibook to get it to print again, even when the server has been running fine sans problems for a week, it will randomly do this shit.Another example is, right now I "was" just trying to copy some music over to an external firewire drive on my server that I have shared. I had the permissions on everyone set to full access yesturday but I noticed when I restarted my server, it did not detect my drive properly until I re-seated the firewire cable :S Thusly somehow it lost my share configuration for my music folder.I set it up, but this time I left it on read only because I wasn't planning on adding any music earlier, itunes and everything was working fine when i mounted the volume. I went on there and changed the permissions back to full access just 20 minutes ago as I wanted to add some music to my drive, I right clicked in my mac os x explorer and made a new folder just to see if I could copy over now, it worked, aswell as deleting the folder.So I drag the 60mb folder of mp3 files over, and it just sat there...and sat...and sat.... until eventually giving me an error -36, upon searching about, it means "-36 ioErr I/O error (bummers)".That's straight from the horse's mouth, and that really tells me nothing, what exactly does "bummers" mean???It's frustrating for me non stop, and it does this to me with other shares in mac os x, or they will randomly disconnect for no reason, sometimes after 15 minutes or sometimes after 3 days. I will note too, I can't connect to my server now, it just says missing alias in the mac os finder. Yet I can VNC into it no problem, wowa, but just upon checking my pc just now, it can't access any shares on it either, the cursour is just spinning, however I usually have no problems with my pc's accessing it, other than the printer thing.I'm just so god damned frustrated with my set up, I've looked it up and down until I was exhausted, several times, and I know I must be missing somewhere along the way, but I just can't understand how it doesn't work like I want it to. Shares are set up, firewire is out of the question, permissions set up, mac os x can log into server, check. It's all good until I actually go to use it for something when I really need it.I'll have to restart my server now to get it to work properly again...it was fine until I vnc'd into it to change the permissions, im gonna try restarting it now and just access it from it's own screen, perhaps vnc has something to do with it.Oh and to clear up any questions before they're asked, this is how I have it configured, as quickly and detailed as I can explain it:My network starts at my ADSL +2 4 port router/modem thingy (Speedtouch 546, it has it's own connection issues on the isp's side, but they don't seem impact LAN side data flow)That then gets split off to:*Port 1: iBook G4*Port 2: 25 ft. cable to 8 port switch (I'll explain that a little further down)*Port 3: 50 ft. cable to apple airport basestation in livingroom for wifi*Port 4: My main AMD PcMy ibook is configured for DHCP with manual address 192.168.1.64The switch just makes the modem think I have like 5 computers hooked into one port lol...My airport, for a long time I thought was perfectly fine as far as usuage with my thinkpad, however, I've been noticing the last few times it's powered on, the airport connects to the thinkpad, but assigns it a 169.xxx.xxx.xx address which does not exist on my network, but if I turn the wifi off and back on, it connects fine and assigns it a dynamic ip on my 192.168.1.xxx network.Other than that, I have it in bridge mode so that it acts pretty much the same as if the laptop were wired via ethernet, vnc, filetransfers, and online games all work good albeit the wireless delay, still not bad in VNC however.My AMD machine is set up for static ip at 192.168.1.66Switch:Port 2 of my modem goes to port 8 (uplink) of my switch.*Port 1: My server (Configured for static ip at 192.168.1.65)The rest are just my B&W; g3 setup for static ip at 192.168.1.68 and an old P2 I believe is at .69 and a 1.5 amd athlon aswell setup on 192.168.1.71, all of those in no particular order except I made sure my server stays on port 1.I did have everything setup so my server was on port 2 of my modem all by itself, but I needed the switch over by my server so I moved it, however, I was still having these problems before hand, even when my server was running on a completely different motherboard!Also, maybe could someone tell me why my server won't boot unless I have a bootable disk in the drive (IE: my windows 2003 server install disk), just so it goes to "press any key to boot cd.......", of course I don't push any key, and it continues to boot into windows.However, if I dare start my server without that disc in there, it simply goes to "Invalid System Disk error, insert correct/valid disk (can't remember it word for word), and push enter"I've tried reinstalling windows server 03, and same deal, yet it's using the same hard disk for the OS that my previous motherboard used and booted from not a problem.I really apologize for the long post... but I've quite literally burnt myself out and lost all motivation with continuing to expand my computer network and so I figured I would ask for help on here for one last resort, but I know many people probably won't read it due to the long post, but I have a lot of problems I don't have answers for and I need to explain myself somewhat thoroughly or else I won't find the proper solution for the problem, now will I?
