  1. Yep, it's been awhile. Real sorry to hear about Y. When did this place change to PC Matic? I know it's the name of the software, but the forum too?
  2. According to CPU-Z, it's a ASUS X712DAP motherboard w/ a Ryzen 3 processor, Radeon graphics. I've done some preliminary research on the presence of Flex mode on this motherboard and found nothing useful...
  3. Howdy folks, been awhile. My question: Always before, in order for memory to be dual channel, there had to be 2 equal size/type sticks of memory in the proper slots. I now have an ASUS laptop with 4gb soldered to the motherboard, and another 4gb stick (replaceable). The laptop will hold a max of 12gb of memory, but I suspect that if I swap that 4gb stick out for an 8gb stick, it will no longer be dual channel. Is this still true? Am I also correct in assuming that even though I'll have more memory, the fact that it is no longer dual channel means memory performance will
  4. Thanks everybody! Been awhile. Since smart phones and tablets pretty much destroyed my computer repair business several years ago, my interests shifted from computers to DVDs and blu-rays. I still love computers but they don't occupy nearly as much space in my life as they used to. Movies, however.....
  5. IG & I had our differences of opinion from time to time, but he was an important part of PC Pitstop and I considered him to be my friend. He will be missed...
  6. According to your test you have a 40gb 7200rpm hard drive in your computer which is contrary to what HP says was originally installed. It's good that whoever put the Seagate in there installed a 7200rpm hard drive. I still recommend doubling the memory. Updated versions of applications originally installed on your computer are assuming computers of today have considerably more memory installed, therefore they can write their applications with the freedom to use more resources thus requiring more memory consumption, so 512mb of memory doesn't go nearly as far as it used to. Back in the day
  7. It's always sad to see a computer manufacturer use a 5400rpm hard drive when a 7200rpm drive is probably just a couple of bucks more. -kd5-
  8. You really should double the amount of physical memory you have installed in your computer. According to HP the max allowed for yours is 1gb (2 x 512mb PC2700). I'd go for it. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00045562&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=228&product=375834&sw_lang= This may be just one part of your problem however. -kd5-
  9. Lot of folks still using XP Joe. Leave the Windows 7 tips for the next guy... -kd5-
  10. So far I've installed 3.4.2 on several computers, now 3.4.3, everything seems to be fine. Thanks... -kd5-
  11. Yes, I saw that too, while I was there trying to figure out which one would be better. I take it that you have no personal experience with either? -kd5-
  12. Thanks Joe. Next question: There are currently 2 versions of LibreOffice available for download: v3.4.2, released Aug 1st, and (apparently) an earlier version released more recently, v3.3.4, released Aug. 17th. Which version is better? Thanks, -kd5-
  13. So, is Libre Office still the godsend/breath of fresh air that it was in April? Are there bugs that still need to be worked out? Is it a pretty decent Open Office replacement? I'm still using Novell Open Office 3.1-9, is Libre Office any better as a Microsoft Office compatible application? Does it open any faster than Novell's Open Office? Is Libre Office still recommended as vehemently as it was in April? -kd5-
  14. Careful with that ax Eugene... -kd5-
  15. You would stand a much better chance of getting the right answers if your thread was in the Custom PCs, case mods, overclocking forum. I'll move it over there for you and leave a redirect here so you can find it... -kd5-
