• Is 32 gigs of RAM overkill?

    Long story short, I was able to upgrade my XPS 8930 from 16 gigs of ram to 32 for nothing (exact same type or ram the pc came with, I just added two extra 8 gigs sticks in the two slots that were empty. Seeing I didn't pay for it (crazy gamer friend upgraded his 8930 to 64 gigs so he had a couple sticks left... show more
    Long story short, I was able to upgrade my XPS 8930 from 16 gigs of ram to 32 for nothing (exact same type or ram the pc came with, I just added two extra 8 gigs sticks in the two slots that were empty. Seeing I didn't pay for it (crazy gamer friend upgraded his 8930 to 64 gigs so he had a couple sticks left over.) I thought what the heck. Anyway, the most intensive programs I run are Lightroom, Photoshop, and Portrait Professional (I'm a photographer, not a gamer) So, even with programs becoming more and more resource hungry, it to mention Windows 10 as a resource glutton, how likely is it that 32 gigs will not eventually be enough?

    My dad got a Dell Optiplex 780 from a friend, and on the tag it says it is supposed to be Windows 7 Operated, but for some reason it has Windows XP on it, and it refuses to work with the Windows XP. He cant factory reset it to get it to work and has been trying to get Windows 7 back on it but no luck since we don't have a disk or a USB that has a bootable version of it on it. So what can he do to fix this Dell Computer?

  • Did I kill my cpu?

    Placed a new 8th gen cpu into a 7th gen motherboard and the computer would turn off immediately after I would try to turn it on. Ultimately figured out I goofed and did what I said above. Anyways, I am wondering if that would have hurt or damaged my new cpu as I have a new motherboard otw I plan to identify it for?

  • Why I can't maker my new computer work?

    I just built a computer (it's the first time I do it) Everything seems to be fine and everything turns on, exept for one of the case's fans and the mouse and key board, which I tasted, and they work.

    I just built a computer (it's the first time I do it) Everything seems to be fine and everything turns on, exept for one of the case's fans and the mouse and key board, which I tasted, and they work. When I turn on the computer and the monitor, it shows a square with the title "Monitor Status" And it say that it's scanning for an HDMI and VGA; then the screen turns black and the same appears after like 2 seconds but instead of scanning it says that there's no signal for neither the HDMI or the VGA, and then it goes into sleeping mode. The square also Shows "Auto-swich: on", but I don't know what this means, and "Optimal mode: 1920x1080 60Hz", and I think this is just information about the screen. This happens everytime a turn on the manitor while it is connected to the computer, and the computer doesn't even have to be on for this to happen. Also, the motherboard shoots two beeps when the computer turns on, but I didn't find anything about the meaning of those two beeps in the  beep code specifications of the manual. Does anyone have an idea of what's wrong? Could it be that one of the components of the computer isn't working propertly? The components that I'm using are, an intel dh61ww mother board, an intel i5-3570k processor, a cool master v650 power supply, nvidia GT 610 grafics card, vengeance 8GB ram, and a vivo smart case...I would love your responses specially if they help, thanks in advance.

  • I cracked my computer screen what should I do?

    Best answer: Many models of the iMac have an outer glass sheet that can be replaced for not much money. Use a suction cup or two at corners to release the glass and frame from the magnetic retainer inside. Buy a new outer glass from on line sources. Or go to the Apple store to see what they suggest.

If the image panel, called an LCD screen is broken, that will be a higher cost.

    Two days ago i decided to restart my computer so it could install an update. In the middle of it shutting down it froze, so i manually restarted it. Nothing came up. Now everytime i start my computer, it turns on for a minute, shuts down, and reboots. It will do this constantly unless i unplug it or shut off the switch on the back. The problem is, when it reboots nothing shows up on the screen. Any ideas?
