I'm currently running a intel pentium g2010 and i want to upgrade to a faster cpu, maybe a core i3 or i5, but i don't know what cpu maybe compatable to my bios,
My MOBO is an ECS H61H2-M17, LGA 1155, and my bios version is American Megatrends 4.6.5, 6/19/2013.

I upgraded my system to the specs below a little less than a month ago.
Til last night, I was able to use dual monitors(DVI -> E2350 LG Monitor, HDMI -> Sony Bravia TV) perfectly fine.
Today, TV shows "No Signal" not even at pre-boot.
replacing HDMI cables (tested 3 of them)
I'm trying to decide which CPU to buy, and looking at benchmarks and stats on the site userbenchmark.com. However, slightly confused now.
It's saying that an Intel Core i3-10320 is slightly better than a Ryzen 9 3900X . The i3 is a 4 core, 8 thread processor, the Ryzen 9 is a 12 core 24 thread...
So, I'm debating whether Intel's Core i3s are worth it are not. The answer I see from most tech channels are varying shades of "no". However, I do not think it's so clear cut in my case.
Where I live, the new i3-10100 is priced at about $140. The Ryzen 5 1600 is just below it at $135. The 2600...
Hi, I ordered the MSI H310M PRO-VDH PLUS motherboard from amazon, because on both amazon and on MSI's website (https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/H310M-PRO-VDH-PLUS.html) it says this motherboard supports 9th gen Intel cpus out of the box. (Im planning on putting a i3 9100f in it). However I just...
Hello people. I'm a total newbie to these things, I'm wondering if I could use a processor from a laptop that haven't been used for years.
So here the case. I have an old laptop with a core i7 processor that I have stopped using for approximately 4-5 years, 'cause the screen was broken and the...
I got a Corsair H80i v2 cooler for my i3 8100. I installed it and I'm not sure how to tell if it is contacting the CPU because my case is too cramped to see.
I ran this stress test and set the Power to 100% and Threads to 4. With this, my CPU showed 100% usage across all 4 cores and the...
I am looking to buy a used i3 6100 processor and I am affraid that there will be some deffects with that.(Specially memory controller faults)
How can I check the CPU memory controller and the health?
I am a beginner and please teach me simply.
I've been waiting to upgrade to a actually DECENT CPU since late 2017; I'm currently running a Pentium G4400 (pls kill me), and like, at this point I'd rather eat pizza without cheese than keep running on this thing.
So, I've got little to no money and the economical and...
So I’m debating going air or liquid but am confused. If I buy a liquid cooler what do I need to do for maintenance? And would that liquid cooler be considered a custom loop? Because that’s mainly what’s confusing me
I'll just provide the TLDR version of my story...
I am building my first computer and can't get a display output. Tried only with HDMI (I don't yet have a monitor) on two different TVs. Fans spin and MOBO lights up. No (or not enough) power to the keyboard to illuminate its backlighting. I have...

I have the LG 29UM58-P.
This morning, windows updated to the April Creators update, and my (Active) Displayport to HDMI adapter now refuses to output 2560x1080. A regular HDMI connection works though.
I have already attempted to rollback the Windows update, rollback graphics drivers...
I purchased a used Hp all in one desktop the other day. We did a reset to clear everything from the previous owners. Now it keeps looping back to the setup screen (the page that starts with " hi there, let's get a few basic things out of the way" then you select your country, language, time, and...
Processor - i5-3330
GPU - GT620
I did some research on the forums and got to know that I can get a 1050ti without bottle-necking the CPU.
I could either spend 500$ to upgrade the PC with better GPU,SSD,Case and PSU or build a new one for 1500$.
Bottom Line -
1 - If I upgrade,I wont get much...

Thanks for your...

So my PC is currently running an FX 6300 and a GTX 950. I have noticed that the CPU is bottlenecking the entire system. So I have decided to upgrade but I do not know what to upgrade to. So I have decided to take to the forums for some help. Also if you can also include a compatible motherboard...
It's the highest quality mobo I could find on the Z97 tierlist (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2383187/motherboard-tier-list-z97-chipset.html) that fits my color scheme (black/white/blue).
Am I making a huge sacrifice for my color scheme or should this be pretty good?
I've heard that...
I want to ask if I buy this processor (Athlon II X3 460), and I'm lucky that it got the working "hidden" 4th core, can I unlock the hidden core? Here's a video of my type of bios:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFdzg7RnXx0&feature=youtu.be

I use PC and I'm familiar with the basic audio recording function, either using audio software or the built-in sound recorder. But after I recently changed my computer speakers the recording wouldn't work. Do you have any idea why this happened?
Something worth mentioning is while I was...
My laptop's internal hard drive has crashed. Can I turn my external "WD My Passport" portable hdd into my laptops main hard drive as a replacement? If so, what are the steps necessary to make this happen?

I've ordered this Corsair Builder Series CXM 600W Modular 80 PLUS Bronze:

I have recently bought these speakers [Link at bottom] and not all of them work, they work whilst I do a sound test.
Do I need to get a sound card? I have no clue why this is happening.
so i have just returned from holiday (2 weeks) i power on my pc and realise the resolution is at 1080p/30hz. then when the desktop loads i get a message from amd saying the system has detected a problem between your display port and computer, lower display port settings will be used.
I've noticed that Cores 2 and 3 are reporting speeds of 1.7GHz when it should be 3.7GHz - cores 0 and 1 are at their stock speed (3.7GHz) and remain that way, but cores 2 and 3 won't move past 1.7GHz
Is this a reason for this?
