    It is Windows 10 64 bit with 1GB Nvidia GeForce210 and 4GB ram.

    Plan to upgrade to AMD A4 or A6

    Should we follow the compatibility matrix of parts set by PC manufacturers?

    I have this old mainboard Asrock G41C-GS with a really neat pentium dual-core 3.2GHz 800 FSB CPU lying around in my basement and I was wondering if I could make more juice out of it by using my spare 2GB DDR3 1333 I got from my friend the other day.

    Here is the table where the pieces of parts 'they say' it would fit together nicely.

    So there it is and please help me out guys as this will be my back-up PC for legacy games that I have conquered.

    PS. I know AMD folks have this same kind of dilemma too. ;)

  • If overclocking is extremely dangerous and strongly discouraged, why would Intel...?

    release a software update for Intel-built boards to support it.

    This question came into me when I was reviewing my motherboard manual. It says there that with the following software update, it would be able to support higher processor models; and it comes with a catch:

    -this overclocking setting is strongly not recommended and is not for long term use

    Mainboard: MSI 945GCM5-F V2 (MS 7267 v4.0)

    Supporting: 800 FSB (1066 overclocking)

    They should've at least kept it as a secret coz they know it'll ruin them in the end (:

    I know that it exists on current models too...shed some light and thanks a lot.

  • Window Memory Diagnostic Tool stuck on 21%...?

    I have a Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit with Intel E2140 1.6 GHz Dual Core processor, genuine Kingston 512MB DDR2 667 and 2GB DDR2 667 memory modules, all on its default settings (no overclocking).

    I ran this test Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool which can be found at Control Panel, restarted my PC, chose 'Extended' Option and 'Default' for cache settings.

    The tool ran as it is until I noticed that it was stuck on 21% literally for about an hour or so...

    Never tried 'basic' and 'standard' though.

    Anyone here has an idea on how long does it suppose to take..?

  • How much is a Mr. Quickie shoe repair?

    I need to have a repair for my shoe. The sole cracked open after using my pair of shoes for not over 2 months. My mom says it needs to be replaced by a new one (new pair of soles) which costs approximately P 500.00 pesos (here in our local repair shop, not in malls). She also said that the soles needed to be pre-ordered a day before the repair could be done.

    So i need to know if the time plus the price and the service here in our local service center/s could be matched by those offered by those in the mall 'classy' ones. (A comprehensive/side-by-side comparison on the details)

    My foot size by the ways is 10 (Filipino size). Thanks.

  • What would happen if...?

    I defragment my micro SD HC Card (its a Nokia brand). I've heard from somewhere out there that doing so would destroy your card in the process leaving you crying to buy a new one.

    By the way its inserted in my china phone and Windows Vista (home basic) is detecting it just fine (I think) with a USB icon and a green wave above it. And also I could check for file system errors and bad sectors on it.
