  1. dinesaur pc

    he needs a 2tb ssd that costs about 300 - 400 euro's in my country, which is apparently even more US dollar, and i know it is the slowest thing in a pc but what i meant is that it is faster than the original hdd from 9 years ago. and maybe it sounds weird but his pc doesn't use the full 120 mb/s write speed. it uses only half of it and to add more frustration is the hdd mostly not even busy when the pc is so called loading. thats why i wanted to upgrade. maybe the new system will use the full speed. maybe not. i don't know. i hope so but from what i understand that every one has said, it will be almost impossible to do a good upgrade from cpu and gain performens by this system. and the only thing that can possibly work is a ssd. Please correct my if I'm wrong.

    the pc doesn't even use the full speed of the 2 tb wd black hdd which is only half a year old. the preveous hdd was a segeate and died. so it is a pretty fast hdd and way to big to replace with an ssd for price reasons. he is probbably not willing to pay 300 to 400 dollar for an ssd. so it is not gonna affect his pc at al and not possible without an reinstall of windows , to replace the cpu.? i did it with my preveous pc whch was an windows 8 with an amd e2 cpu to an i5 4690 cpu

    the problem is that he doesn't want a ssd, i already offert that solution. i don't know exactly why, i mean i have one. but he doesn't want one. and to anwser the question about the ram, it is already 16 gb ddr3. so plenty enough. he wants to do a little bit of blender rendering and 3d printer software like craftware, as a hobby thing. but the thing he wants the most is to speed up things like adobe pdf viewer and exel sheets, which both take a minute or 2 to load with small files. which is ridiculously long for those programs

    hello everyone, my dad asked my recently if there is a way to speed up his pc. so I went searching for is pc specs to find out how power full it already was. not really power full though. it is based on an intel i7 860. yes indeed, a first gen i7 in 2018. so i sad he can ugrad it with an i7 8700 or an 8700 k. even an i3 8400 is better than this first gen i7. but anyway that is not the point. the point is that he added that he wants to keep his existing os. which is een windows 7 pro sp1. this windows 7 pro is out of date for already an year. you can see that here so the question is if it is out dated for an year, can you than upgrade from first gen intel to eight gen intel without any boot problems or reinstall from windows (offcourse with installing drivers or not if possible) and does it make a differece if it is up to date?

  8. activated but not genuine

    hello everyone, I need some help with an older pc based on windows 7 pro. this is my pc for older software so I wont upgrade it. it is a legally activated win 7 pro and has always workt properly. recently the hdd had some difficultys and had damaged sectors. so I bought an new hdd with the same sector size. i duplicated de hdd with an program called arconis. it was deliverd with the new hdd. than I repaired the masterboot and the windows 7 pro workt perfect, exept for the activation. it says that windows is activated (first picture). but every time the systems boots up, there comes an pop-up window that says it is not genuine(second picture). because of that it can not update anymore. I've tried everything that microsoft says and i already looked on differend forums including this one. i cant find anything that works on my specific pc. can someone help my with this. i am 100% sure it is a problem in windows itself, like de registery or so. again, it is an legally payed version of windows 7 pro.
  9. AMD 1800x or 2700x

    i want to thank you all for your help. i am gonna choose for the 2700x. lets hope it gives my the trust in AMD back. I've had a few AMD PC before but they were the worst cpu's ever. from that moment i went to Intel. but they are now a days way to expensive and the upgrade possibilities are pore.
  10. AMD 1800x or 2700x

    i do not game very much. Actually not at all if you think Minecraft is not a game. so it is pretty much only for heavy usage of virtual machines, programming and normal everyday stuff like YouTube ant research. But an 4790 is not an option for me. I have looked it up and the workstation part is just a little better than by the 7700hq(in my laptop), which can barely keep up. and if it is possible, it has to have 8 cores. i use a lot of multi-core programes. So the 1700 seems interesting but is the 1700x also good for its money? you see, I want a high end cpu that can last for a while, lets say to at least the year 2022 or 2023. I also don't get the difference between the x or not x cpu's, is it just the clock speed or something else? Ps.: I know it sounds like bulsh** but I do not wanna overclock because of heat and lifespan. I know this stuff can survive a long time. But I do sometimes such heavy loads that my current pc shuts down because of overheating and overload. especially the last one.
  11. AMD 1800x or 2700x

    Hi, I have currently en Intel core i 5 4690. but it can not handle my workstation loads like virtual machines and can not run the programme's that I coded smooth enough. So i did some research after some processors. I came out that the i7 8700k the best processor is for me. But way to expensive. So i looked at AMD and found out that the 1800x and the 2700x beat the 8700k and they are cheaper. Is the 2700x really worth its money? The 1800x is way cheaper and lets me have the option to buy a Dark Rock 4 cpu cooler extra for the same price as an 2700x with stock cooler. Or is the stock cooler good enough ? I do not intend to overclock and I'm planning to turn off the auto overclocking. No matter which one i buy they will both be running on base clocks.
  12. CPU baking

    And the problem is back but now it seems it only happens after the pc wakes up from standby. So, does anyone know wat the heck is going on with my pc?
  13. CPU baking

    i have now the aftermarked cooler for about 3 days. the problem seems to be solved. apparently there has to be some kind of temp sensor in the fan it self or one of the coils had to be damaged. anyway, the cooling performens is also improved with at normal use a 10 degrees difference and at load with an aida64 test about 20 to 30 degrees improved. so tanks for the help you guys.
  14. CPU baking

    thanks for all of your help, i will post it when it is solved or not with an aftermarked cooler.
  15. CPU baking

    it is indeed a good test , there is only one problem, my case fan is has only one rpm. it is a three pin connector and it is 15 years old. i had it laying aroud and just put it in the case.
