I have been trying to use the rate my computer feature in Windows & Home Premium. I am running the 64 bit version on an AMD Athlon 64 Dual core Brisbane CPU, NForce 4 M A mother board and Seagate 500 G Drive, 4 Gigs Pc 6400 DDR2 Dual Channel GSkill Ram.
I get an error message each time I try to run the app. Here is the Error Report File which I will attach.
when i press the "rate this computer" button, there's nothing going on! there's no process! but the thing is that i can use my aero theme! my rating was 5.9 before! and now its not working should i post some kinda report or file for u guyz to trace the error?
I use a Gateway HD monitor, it's currently set to 59 hz, I need to get it up otherwise the monitor will just shut down while I'm playing games. I've tried everything, I tried to change it in the nvidia control panel but it just default back to 59 hz. I've tried the advanced settings in screen resolutions and the result is the same.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my Computer(...) and I have recently found a problem that's pretty annoying: The file copying is really-really slower than on Windows XP and I mean that if I want to copy a folder which is about 650MBs over to a USB Flash Drive it takes about 1 day(what??) and the transfer rate is like 300KB/s. I have tried to look for solutions on the Internet but they haven't turned out handy. Could someone please help me asap as I need to give the USB to someone in a couple of hours?
I was able to increase polling rate for my USB mouse very easily (but just downloading and running a program) in Windows XP, but from what I've read on the net, changing the USB polling rate for a mouse in Windows 7 is much more involved. Does anyone have any info on how to go about doing this?
when i click the "rate this computer" button to rate my windows 7 pc it says that "can't complete the requested assessment.the system does not have the necessary multi media support to run the requested assessment"
My main problem is that When I switched over to Win 7 my frame rate drop over half when I play WOW. I have tried several different drivers.Tweak force, Nivida Beta and current released, plus an older one that is in Win 7. Just cant get it to go up. I switch back to XP(on separate drive) and its back to the high frame rate.
I am looking for several things. 1st what is causing the problem, Can I correct with what I have? If I need to replace parts, what should I replace and with what. I think my video card is ok. I use the system for WOW, Unreal Tourment 3, and the age of Empire series. Plus Digi Photography. I mainly play WOW. I like Nivida and AMD.
I have read it could be driver related or not enough CPU power and mem. WOW is a hog on the resources I am told.
So I downloaded SWTOR and when it opened up my monitor said "input rate not supported" My monitor is a dell st220l.I tried booting into safe mode and changing the refresh rate but there is no where to change it. What the heck do I do?
my processor rating has dropped by 1.3% for some reason. Its dropped from 7.4 to 6.1 and I dont understand the reason why this has happened and Im kind of mystified the reason. Its always been the following:- Processor: Calculations per second 7.4 (dropped to 6.1) Memory (RAM): Memory operations per second 7.4 Graphics: Desktop performance for Windows Aero 7.7 Gaming graphics: 3d business and gaming graphics performance 7.7 Primary hard disk: Disk data transfer rate 5.9 (and this is with SATAIII 6GB) Generated a system health report and that is fine all passed with flying colours, Ive runs some tests myself and cannot find a reason why this has dropped from 7.4 to 6.1 a 1.3% drop in calculations per second.
My pc configuration is not so good (core2 duo 2.2GHz, 2gb ram, NO ADDITIONAL VIDEO HARDWARE) i'm using Win 7 ultimate sp1(rating 2.7). the frame rate is not good while gaming. is there any way that i can downgrade my directX to 9.0c somehow?
I just installed Windows 7 64bit to try it out and so far its a pretty nifty change from xp, however if I can't solve this problem I'll have to change back to xp.
I have a 19" Samsung Syncmaster 957mb CRT monitor, the native desktop resolution is 1280x1024@85hz , but I run CS 1.6 in 800x600@100hz usually, however when I launch CS now, with the same launch options as I had in XP, the game starts up in window mode.
If i remove -freq 100 (forcing the monitor to 100hz) in launch options, it starts fullscreen in "800x600", however if i check my monitors OSD and look at the display timings, its tells me that the current resolution is my desktop resolution (1280x1024) and the same refresh rate, 85hz.
edit: To be short, the game is supposedly in 800x600, yet my monitor believes itself to be in 1280x1024?
Currently I can't find drivers for my monitor, so it only shows up as a PnP monitor, but this shouldn't be a issue, and my nvidia drivers are up to date.
i have read that ps/2 polling rate can go up to 200hz (if you wonder why, it is for a mechanical keyboard) but i could not find a way to view or change the polling rate.there is a tool named ps2rate but it seems that it does not work on windows 7.is there a way to view or change the rate?
i have been having this problem for about three weeks now and my transfer rate is very slow.... and at the end it even takes longer... sometimes it even gets stuck at somepoints but resumes after quite a while
I have a Vantec NexStar TX NST-210S2-BK Hard Drive Enclosure - 2.5" SATA to USB 2.0 wit a 120 GB Segate Harddrive in it connected to an Asus K61-IC laptop and my transfer speeds on all my USB Ports are acting super slow.Also, Just recently I've had a balloon tip start popping up in the taskbar telling me that if I hook my USB Devices up to a USB 2.0 Port it will run faster. I'm pretty sure that all my USB Port's are 2.0.
I am really digging the ability to rate and tag photos. I take a lot of photos and don't have enough room for them on my C: drive. I have a second internal drive that I store them on. The problem is that I am unable to rate or tag any picture on the second drive. The stars are de-highlighted and tags is not even present in the pane. However, any picture on the C drive can be rated or tagged.
I have tried adding the external drive folder as a library. It addes it properly and allows the arranging functions to be used but I can not tag or rate.
Operating System: Windows 7 64 bit (clean install from formatted drive)
when I put fullscreen anykind of flash video like megavideo or videobb or others, fps rate is really low! I have disabled any windows visual effect and have tried on IE, Firefox and Opera and the problem is still the same. Cpu never goes above 40% so it is not performances problem... what is this?
PC2 is running Windows XP Home Edition - Service Pack 3
Both computers have the same Workgroup PC2 has 2x Hard drives, one of which I have set up as a "Shared" hard drive.PC1 I have changed in 'Advanced sharing settings' - network discovery/public folder sharing/file and printer sharing turned on. Also �File sharing connections� is on �Enable file sharing for devices�..� And I have turned off password protected sharing.
i have problem here..that my computer can't rate the windows experience index..why??its say i have problem with hardware..i use windows vista before and dosent have any problem with windows experience index...when i start to use windows 7 on build 7068 and now i use the build 7600 X64(64-Bit) its can't rate the windows experience.
I have pinpointed the primary source of my graphics card's coil whine as high fps. In some applications such as crysis, I get upwards of 4000 fps in the intro screens, causing my graphics card to sound like its a dying rat. Obviously this is completely unnecessary...is there a program or feature of catalyst that allows me to limit the fps across all programs?
I am wondering if there is something wrong with my windows 7 ratings. My SSD is in perfect working order and everything is blazing fast, but for some reason I only get a 5.9 for a rating. I am using the Intel X25-V SSD. I get the advertised speeds across the board when I benchmark it so I don't know what is pulling down my ratingOthers are getting higher ratings with the same exact drive, and the drive itself is functioning perfectly and I am getting the proper speeds from it, so maybe it has something to do with W7 settings?Mobo: ASUS M4A77TDRam: 4GB Gskill DDR 1600 (7.5)CPU: BFG Geforce GTS-250 (7.0)Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 Quad-core Black Edition 3.2 GHz (7.3)HDD: X25-V (5.9)OS: Windows 7-Pro
seems each time I turn the computer on my keyboard repeat delay and repeat rate has reverted to something slow, i just need to open the control panel and close it again and they work as expected (the sliders are at the max position where I left them, even though it doesn't work)
I built up a PC a couple of months ago. It has an ok spec, Phenom II 550 x2, NVidia GTX 250, 4b ram, 500gig HD, 620w PSU. Windows 7 Eval. 7100.
From the first couple of days I noticed an issue that looked like incorrectly setup refresh rates - there are wavy lines accross the entire screen, and is particularly noticeable on highlighted text and the side edges of windows. I made sure the frame rate was correct, both in Windows and according to the GFX Card. I have tried all the settings but have settled at 75hz. This is the best setting but does not get rid of the problem.
I have the most up to date drivers for my GFX Card and Windows 7 is up to date too.
The intensity of the problem can fluctuate. Right now, its fairly minimal and only visable if you are looking. It can however get to the point where its becoming hard to read text, or at least tiring because you have to strain some more. This can happen at any time. The only link I have found is to games, as both World of Warcraft and Borderlands will intensify the isse, both ingame and in Windows. I am fairly sure they are set at the correct resolution and refresh rate where possible.
What could this be?
Further info, three weeks ago I turned the PC on in the morning to find the 'power' button unresponsive. After some waiting and several attempts it eventually turned on but I got a 'no signal' display on screen. Later I resorted to jump starting the PC without the power button, using a screwdriver to connect the prongs - after doing this, the power button has been fine although it took another day for the no signal message to go away and normal viewing return. This problem has not repeated since.
During this the fans were fluctuating a lot, audibly so. This dissapeared mostly along with the above problems, but I still think it sounds like the fans are fluctuating infrequently, particularly on initial bootup. I have no software for changing fan speeds, as far as they know they run at the speed I set physically.
A lot of this seems to point at the GFX Card, although I am a little more inclined to think it is the power supply, or the availability of power for each unit. But I really don't know. Either I can find the solution online or I take it to the shop and pay for a repair, not that its easy to even tell them what they need to repair.
The PC runs fast and with relatively few crashes besides that one weekend and this persistant display problem.
Ever since I retired my huge CRT monitor, I have been very unsatisfied with the performance of my 75Hz maximum LED monitor. Don't get me wrong, it's great for movies and everyday use, but for gaming it has done nothing but leave me yearning for something with a higher refresh rate.
I see that there are 120Hz 3D 'gaming' LEDs and have been poking around these waters. I have heard from sources that Benq used to make one of the best 120Hz monitors, but has since been discontinued. So have others, as I see them as 'unavailable' on NewEgg or insanely high priced elsewhere. Are these 120hz 3D monitors a bad idea to purchase? Are there any other options? I can't stand 75Hz in-game any longer!
i just notice that my usb transfer is really slow around 11mb/sec for my usb stick and around 20mb/sec for my external hard drive. I noticed this change right after installing SP1. (I'm on windows 7 ultimate 64bit.) The thing is that it happenned in a particular moment, i was transfering files to my external hard drive the same day i installed Sp1 and in the beginning of the transfer the transfer speed was normal, around 60mb/sec. Then my Internet security software (Eset Smart Security) tells me that a process has changed in i think it was taskhost.exe (i am not 100% sure but i know it was a windows process), it ask me do i accept it, i press ok accept the change and then i saw my transfer speed slowed down right away to something like 20mb/sec.
I have a PNY 570 gtx videocard hooked up with a HDMI to monitor. No matter if I connect it to a audio receiver or to the monitor I only get a maximum of 2 channels and Bit Depths 16-bit.Sample rates are only shown as 44.1kHz and 48.0kHz and the HDMI jack only shows L and R. It wont let me test a surround sound speaker system.The stats to this video cards sound will allow much higher samples and bits.All this information was gathered in the Windows 7 sound properties.I click on advanced in the sound properties and still cannot change to a higher quality that 48000 Hz.
i upgraded from xp to windows 7, before i could stand in front of my pc for 3-4 hours without my eyes tired, now...in max 30 minutes i have a head ache. could you tel me what can a do about it? i have a toshiba l300 laptop with rezolution 1280x800 refresh rate 60 Mhz (i cant modify this) and no video driver instaled because i didn't found one. i tried modifiing the brightness but nothing,the same problem.
I installed windows 7 on my computer, and now I am trying to install it on my laptop and it would not work, the only problem that I can think of could be that it can not handle the 64 bit version - could that be the case? if so, is there something within the laptop that could indicate which bit rate is more applicable?this laptop came with windows 7, but after some problems I formatted the drives and want to re-install windows 7
so I switched from Windows XP to Windows 7 last week and I've been getting random frame rate drops..I got pretty good frame rates in Windows XP and didn't get any choke at all..in Windows 7 my frame rates are around 50-60 (which is fine) but they randomly and frequently drop to like 10-15 fps for 2-3 seconds. It gets annoying after a while obviously.
my computer specs are as follows:
Windows 7 32-bit
Pentium 4 3.2 GHz HT
nVidia 8800GS video card
has anyone else experienced this or can anyone recommend a solution to fixing the problem?
I just recently started experiencing bad frame rate issues in Source games. I installed Windows 7 Home x64 about a week ago and at first things were fine. Then out of the blue (about two days ago) I started experiencing horrible frame rates in TF2 and Zombie Panic Source. I was getting about 15 FPS or less according to the game but it felt even worse than that.
It seems to be a network issue on my end. I tried installing the latest driver for my NIC and that fixed the problem until I rebooted and found the problem was there again. So I ran the setup for the driver and chose repair and it worked again...until I rebooted. Then I found that just going into the network and sharing center and the change adapter settings section that if I disable and re-enable my network it fixed it again. I have to do this every time I reboot. It's not that much of a problem since disabling and re-enabling the network only takes a few seconds but it is frustrating not knowing what is causing this. Does anyone have any ideas?
I have a 17-inch Toshiba laptop with a resolution of 1600x900 and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. However, on some backgrounds, I can clearly see my screen flickering. With the preservation of my eyes in mind, it would be greatly beneficial to know if I can increase this or not. I go here: Quote: Control PanelAppearance and PersonalizationDisplayScreen Resolution and click "Advanced Settings". Under "Monitor Settings", the pull-down bar only gives me the option of 60Hz (the "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" is whited out). Is it possible to increase the refresh rate?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1012 running Windows 7 Starter SP1 and I've got it hooked up to my Protron 42" LCD screen with HDMI cable. I changed the flicker rate to 70 Hertz without checking the Proton's maximum flicker rate - yeah, that's really SMART - so now I've got an issue with my external display.It worked okay for second but then my laptop screen turned black and the external display reads "Signal Out of Range" (duh, the Protron works only up to a 69.8 Hertz flicker rate, which I SHOULD have checked BEFORE changing it, but what's done is done -_-).Now, when I plug in the HDMI cable, my laptop screen goes to black and the external display still reads that same message. I can't change the flicker rate without seeing the menu on my laptop screen.
