    Critical_Process_Died when Updating to W8.1

    Hello everyone, I updated my Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 tonight and unfortunately had a BSOD when trying to boot into the new 8.1 for the first time. I attempted to fix the booting issue with my Windows 8 recovery disk and it said it couldn't help. Anyway, I fixed it by powering down the...

    RAM Post Issue.

    Sounds like similar problems I was having with an i3 build. When you boot with the RAM installed, do all the fans spin up including the GPUs? The issue sounds to be the power supply, if you can get your hands on a spare then give that a try.

    weird problem with with booting

    This sounds like a familiar problem I had with my 5870. Not 100% but check to see if the graphics drivers are up to date (sounds odd but check it). You could also check if there is a BIOS update for your graphics card. The reason why I suggest this is because of the fan speeds being so high...

    Borderlands 2 Performance Issues

    I'm running two 7970 in crossfire at a resolution of 6000x1080 and the frame rate is a constant 60fps accept when there is PhysX involved. When I play at a resolution of 1920x1080 I still get the exact same drops in fps when the action starts - regardless of resolution or if I am running one...

    pc restarts every 2 seconds ..

    Try one stick of RAM, remove all HDDs and optical drives (both the power and data cables), even graphics card and see if the system maintains power. If no luck, try it with a different stick of RAM, if again no luck then I am going with the others and saying it is a electrical fault/short. You...

    how to transfer photos from iphone to pc?

    WAIT! Before you do anything, open iTunes and go into the 'Preferences' tab. There is an option under one of the tabs in that window that says something like "Automatically Sync iPhone when connected". Make sure that is un-ticked, close iTunes and then do what ever the other members have...

    Computer--->(old) TV

    Hello there, The cable you linked is intended for some of the first HD TVs to be released - they required a 6pin connecter (Red, Blue, Green and the common red, white and yellow) instead of a HDMI connection. I have had a look around for a VGA to component cable but to no avail. I would have...

    New Computer Locking Up

    I would suggest at least 4 hours, some would say 7. Odd that it is happening on something so lightweight, have you tried using a different browser to see if the same happens? And I wouldn't think so, as long as it isn't anything liquid based.

    New Computer Locking Up

    MemTest is solid, it will only skip errors on unsupported RAM and that is very rare. Next diagnostic would be to try and replicate the crash, time it, load programs up etc. Secondly, even if MemTest showed no errors, I would run with one stick of RAM just to see if anything changes. Lastly, if...

    New Computer Locking Up

    From what I understand, when the RAM is filled by a application the page file acts as "extended RAM". If you haven't altered the page file then it is likely that Windows is operating it and you should have no problems there. Otherwise, make sure it is large enough for your applications to use...

    'My Games' Folder Directory Problem.

    My PC has been stationary for the past three years, it isn't dumb at all as my documents are backed up onto multiple drives, it is just unfortunate that Steam assumes where the directory is. To solve the problem I just created and logged into a new administrator account, played the game all...
