GameStop exec: New consoles are imminent GameStop COO Tony Bartel has made some waves this week when he noted that he believes some new console launches "seem imminent."
There have been rumors flying about a "PlayStation 4K" that supports 4K gaming for a few months but there have been little details otherwise. Nintendo has been working on their NX console in secret for over a year, and Microsoft is likely not far behind if their rivals are building new consoles.
"Although we have not modeled extensive growth for new innovation in this presentation, we are very pleased to see the introduction of technology like virtual reality and rumored new console launches, some of which seem imminent," Bartel said during an investor conference.
Additionally, Bartel says expectations are very high for VR devices like the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR, which are expected to start off with slow sales but grow into a behemoth in the coming years.

What I would do is go in to settings while connected to the television and click
detect and then click the other screen and set as default then shut down and
restart. If that doesnt work then download your video driver and reinstall to
set the monitor as default and that will for sure work

Hard to provide assistance with such sketchy information. What brand laptop,
what hardware, problem duration, etc. would be most helpful.

works beautifully..I am stock and have been trying to fix this..I know the
default settings had the external monitor as the 'default' monitor and figured
that had something to do with it but it won't let me change the 'default
monitor' to the notebook display..I'm really stuck here

actually I do have a simple solution that many people are catching on to and that is ADVANCE SYSTEM CARE install that and it will help a BUNCH
You got your PC at Walmart (the WM at end of model number). It shipped with 512Mb RAM memory (this is the stuff that counts for speed). Your PC uses up to 1GB per slot, DDR2 RAM.
Example: Staples sells the 1GB DDR2 RAM your PC uses for about $40. Their installation charge is $39.99.
Your computer will never be fast at anything; it's too old. As long as it's Windows XP it's unlikely to ever be secure against threats. BUT it should be adequate for email and *simple* web surfing; even with only 512 Mb of RAM.
Your Product Specifications Page:
HP's Product Support Summary page:
However, most likely your problem is not as simple as just the amount of RAM installed. The greatest slowdown comes from installed software programs running the the background, many of them usually no needed. Unfortunately, the solution to *that* problem is not so easy to explain, and the path to your getting the PC up to speed is not so simple. The reality is (and you will hear otherwise!) that you should keep in mind that there is no simple software "program" you can "plug in" to solve your "too much junk running at one time" problem.
HP has an explanation page about improving performance and system resources. You may find it helpful, you may find it confusing as it includes information not specific to your PC. If that is confusing for you, you should seek help from a qualified, reliable,honest, and competent PC technician. You need someone who can either go in andremotely customize your PC settings, remove the junk and clutter, and know howto get rid of the dreck while keeping the stuff you need for what you do withthe PC.
A common example: Still loading old printer software long after the printershave been replaced. Esp. bad when the printers are All-in-One variety. Printerdreck: HP AIOs can install up to 12 programs on a default install when youreally only NEED 4 of the 12 to *fully* operate said All-in-One printer. Epsonand Canon printers are just as bad or even worse! Getting rid of the printerdoes not get rid of its software.
I'd try and find a good tech who can customize it to run faster without addingRAM. Including the cost or RAM, I wouldn't sink more than $150 total intogetting it up to a decent speed.

I am a senior who basically uses my 'puter for e-mail and to see pics of my grandchildren. My HP Presario Compaq Model #SR2013WM (2005) has gotten terribly slow. Someone has suggested that it is due to needing more RAM (whatever that is). I went to HP.com/store to see if I could purchase more RAM. They say that this is no longer avaiable - clearly to promote the sale of a newer model. When I go to "My Computer" I am told that I have 98.1 GB free space out of 140GB total - again, whatever that means! I do not know how to find out the available RAM space. So, my question is (are) does the lack of RAM sound like a legitimate reason for the slowness; is there somewhere (besides HP) where I might buy said additional RAM; and, is it a difficult process to install it if and when I can find it. To say I am less than computer literate would be an understatement, but I can follow directions. Any help you might offer would be sincerely appreciated. David

It seems more and more everyday I am blasted with pc after pc with the same problem, whether it be slowness to another virus, which is the same one, even tho I cant remember the name of it. So, when I get it, the first thing I do is turn it on to see how it boots and if everything starts up like it should. If so then I continue to go to start and then to run then type regedit or msconfig. If niether of those two work because the virus says its an illegal action or the virus has caused the computer to shut down all peripherals then I go to start and shut down. If it doesnt allow me to shut down then I simply flip the switch on the back of the power supply and flip it back on. As it restarts I go to the bios and make sure that the hard drive is the first thing that boots and then exit. As its booting up I promptly repetitively push f8 to go in too safemode. Once in safe mode I press control alt delete to pull up the task manager. Then I click the process tab and see if I can find the virus running in process. More than likely not in safemode as administrator though. Then I close that and continue to the start and run again and type regedit and msconfig. In msconfig I go to the start up tab and uncheck all that doesnt apply for the right start up. (IE yahoo messenger does not need to start up when the computer boots) then click apply and then exit without restart. Now the regedit, from there is a tree that you have to follow, lol probably by the eighth time you will have it memorized. Click the arrow for Hkey_current_user then the pluses as follows + software + Microsoft + Windows + current version then actually click on run. At this spot you can erase everything but (Default). After that is finished I go back up the tree to Hkey_Local_Machine and follow the tree the same way except you cant erase everything in run. Usually thats where I find the culprit and erradicate it from being able to boot at start up. Now I shut down and restart .

AT&T adds bandwidth caps to DSL lines
Written by Andre "DVDBack23" Yoskowitz @ 14 Mar 2011 11:57
AT&T has confirmed today that it will be adding bandwidth caps to its DSL and U-Verse services.
DSL users will have a 150GB cap while U-Verse subscribers will have a 250GB cap.
Anyone who exceeds the limit three times will be charged $10 for every extra 50GB of data consumed.
The new policy goes into effect May 2nd for new and existing customers.
AT&T says it will send notifications when you reach 65 percent of the cap, 90 percent and finally when you hit the full cap. The company will also give all subscribers software to help them track their usage.
The caps will affect under 2 percent of users, says the ISP, subscribers who use "a disproportionate" amount of data and slow down networks for others

Per4mance PC has been in service since 2005. Ultimately it was just an idea because I kept repairing my friend’s computers and they wouldn’t leave me alone until i said, "pay me." Per4mance PC is still in its early stage especially since the relocation but there are plans to grow further. This blog is here so that customers and I can converse about computer and electronic topics. This is the goto spot for all your multimedia needs. I will have links all around for places to go to get your computer repaired to getting rid of that old clunker for a brand new hexacore. There will not be a link unless it is useful otherwise WE DONT WANT NO BLOATWARE lol... but wait the most important aspect of this page is to give you the means to the best hardware for the best price. Nobody likes to be pushed around and ripped off so I am encouraging people to take advantage of the information I found. I will give you the places I go to get my equipment sooooo cheap. So please look around and check out the little game app.
