  1. I know that Microsoft has stopped supporting 7th Gen and up processors from Intel and AMD's new line Ryzen with Windows 7 and 8.1. I was wondering if this applies to Windows Server 2012 as well? Does Microsoft support Sever 2012 on these newer processors?
  2. Hello, I was wondering if someone could tell me what the latest processor line was for AMD prior to Ryzen?
  3. I have actually trying installing these fixes in the past before I purchased Windows 10 Pro. They seem to work with installing the updates. However, I would always get pop ups from Microsoft stating that my hardware was not supported with this version of Windows.
  4. Ok perfect.. I am not an expert on AMD by any means. Is the FX line the latest line Pre-Ryzen?
  5. I have been doing some research regarding which AMD processors are supported by Windows 7 and 8.1. I have not been able to find much information regarding this question. I was wondering if someone could shed some light on this for me. I have been using Windows 10 Pro on my Ryzen PC. I am completely fed up with Windows 10. I know that my Ryzen chip is not supported by Windows 7, or 8.1.
  6. Does HP Sell a good Glossy Monitor? I see that the HP 25er might be glossy??
  7. I was wondering if someone could tell me if there are any glossy monitors out there anymore? I really like the glossy monitor. They are good looking a the colors are much more vibrant in my opinion. I had the Dell S2415h and loved it however Dell does not make this monitor anymore. Any help with finding a glossy monitor would be much appreciated.

    TV as Monitor

    Has anyone used a 32" TV as a computer monitor? I am looking at maybe using one.
  9. I have successfully installed and activated Windows 7 on my 7th Gen laptop. Windows 7 actually runs much smoother than Windows 10 did on this laptop. I have even installed Windows updates successfully as well. Really the only issues that I am running into is the graphics driver, and the warning message from Microsoft stating my system is not supported. Microsoft is completely to blame for the lack of support for 7th Gen and newer processors. It is pretty obvious that Microsoft is forcing users to Windows 10. My opinion is that Microsoft has been upset that users have not jumped over from Windows 7 to Windows 10 liked they had hoped. There are many different articles out there stating that Windows 10 has overtaken Windows 7, but that is far from true. Latest articles from PC Magazine have showed that Windows 7 is still the prominent OS for Windows PCs. Also there are several articles stating that 6th Generation Processors are being bought up like crazy because of this as well. I have a good friend that works at Dell and he said that Dell has continued to offer their new PCs with the 6th Generation Processors since many customers still prefer Windows 7 over 10.
  10. I have a question for all of you. I do not know if it is possible, but I have a laptop with a 7th Gen Processor. The issue that I am running into is that some of the software that I use on a daily basis requires Windows 7. I have been able to get it to work on Windows 8.1 as well. However, Windows 10 will not play nice with my software. What I was wondering is if there is anyway I can run Windows 7 Pro, or 8.1 Pro on a 7th Gen Processor without getting the constant Microsoft message stating that my OS does not support the hardware? I also cannot find a graphics driver that will work either. However, Intel's website states that the graphics driver is supported for Windows 7/8.1/10 which I found interesting. I really don't know if this is possible, but thought it was worth a shot asking.
  11. In a perfect world for me Microsoft would make Windows 10 look like Windows Vista. I highly doubt that will happen, but I can dream I guess. I just really wish that Microsoft would move from the metro theme and back to the areo themes.
  12. I would like to stay around $500 for the CPU and Graphics card.
  13. I am building a new computer to do some drafting and design work using Chief Architect, AutoCAD LT, CorelDRAW, and Microsoft Word. I have been reading several discussion boards regarding CPUs and these types of programs. I cannot seem to get a clear answer as to which one of these CPUs would actually be enough to preform well. I would like to know if any of you have had any experience with these type of programs and which one of these CPUs you would recommend.
