  • How can I slightly upgrade my PC?

    I have an old HP pavilion 23 ALL IN ONE PC. It has 6gb of ram and a 64 bit os based processor. The processor is a: AMD E2 -1800 APU with Radeon had graphics 1.70 GHz. It’s running the latest windows 10. All I want to do is use my pc for YouTube and average multitasking. I’d like the watch Youtube, open iTunes, search on chrome, do college work. I do NOT want to play games on it so no worries on not being able to game on it. This PC has always struggled to do basic tasks which is a shame. I have good internet but sadly the pc struggles to load YouTube videos and iTunes. This pc lags a lot whenever it has to do a couple things at once. I’m not that big into computers but I researched this subject a lot and I’m interested in cracking open my pc and upgrading any parts and cheaply upgrading it. But nothing on google offers actual instructions and actual info on parts to upgrade on it. I saw a great vid on YouTube where a guy replaced the cpu in my exact pc and did so very easily but he didn’t say what it was upgraded to. What can I actually do or replace to have this thing work slightly better. I’ve reinstalled windows. I wiped the memory. I followed some great tutorials on YouTube to speed up my pc and it actually helped a ton! But it’s not enough. I don’t wanna throw my pc away if I can simply upgrade the cpu. I know all in one pcs are bad for upgrading but all I want is to upgrade it slightly enough to where it can be used with out lagging.

  • What is a good cheap gaming computer i can build under $400?

    Im tired of paying for xbox live gold all the time. So i wanna switch to pc. I do have steam on my laptop but it only has intel hd graphics and most games run very crappy or not at all. So what would be a good computer to build under $400? or maybe $500 max?

  • Is my CMOS battery bad or is it something worse?

    Hi, I have an old PC I assembled in 2011. I haven't used it in a over year, because it started rebooting constantly. I have checked my tempatures - all good. Voltages seems to be fine.

    Hi, I have an old PC I assembled in 2011. I haven't used it in a over year, because it started rebooting constantly. I have checked my tempatures - all good. Voltages seems to be fine. I cannot see any temperature on my MB's VRM in HWinfo. I suspect it doesn't have that sensor. (P8P67 pro rev. 3.1) Something confusing is my BIOS showing my RAM running at 1333 MHz but they are capable of 1600 MHz I've had a nagging feeling about the MB being at fault. I fear it's a bad VRM or PSU, based on online forums. I did a calculation on my setup; wattage wise. It draws up to about 750W and I have a Corsair HX850 pro. Pretty confident my PSU was not at fault I started reading about types of MB failures. Where I learned about VRM overheating. But I saw someone suggesting someone to check their CMOS. So I read up on that, and all sources I found, listed shutting down constantly as a symptom. But having no issues with dates etc. I kept fearing the VRM is overheating. Then I found a source listing poor external hardware detection, as a sign of a bad CMOS battery. I have had issues with that for a few years, having to change the USB port of my mouse constantly and occasionally having to reboot my computer because my keyboard wasn't detected. Furthermore it never registered the microphone through my audio-amp. Is my MB dying/bad? Is it most likely my PSU? Or is it something as simple as a bad CMOS battery? Thanks beforehand 🙂

    Handles 1440P gaming very well and can handle 4K gaming.
    Power supply is a Channel Well Technologies GPS series a little below RM Corsair series.
    They are a good high volume producer.
    Motherboard audio is unknown and might have raised the board a bit.
    If you must have wifi, if subtracts from gaming and motherboard wifi is inferior to a good Gigabyte with antenna.
    There is no question that it is an excellent pc, and if already purchased is ot worth changing.
    For $18, probably would have upgraded to 850 Watts - EVGA 850W GQ 80 Plus Gold Power Supply, by FSP is a tad better at not much money and a touch higher in motherboard with GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING SLI and if wifi is needed add it later.
    Neither affects gaming performance.

    You have a very nice PC that performs well.

    Computer help? My computer has these dark lines and they keep growing?

    Best answer: The horizontal lines are due to physical damage to the screen. The only fix is to have the screen panel replaced, they cannot be repaired. If it is a monitor it is just as cheap to buy a new monitor, if it is a laptop take it to a local workshop for the screen to be replaced
