Windows 7: Questions About my PC and upgrades

Questions About my PC and upgrades

I have been talking a lot about my PC. What upgrades I should get. Other things also like if I could over clock my Graphics card. Just a whole bunch of new things. But because this conversation has been taking place in a completely different thread where someone asked what type of graphics card he should get. I decided to make my own. SO I for one would have all the info I could want about my computer in one thread. For two. Because I think I am supposed to do this anyway when I ask questions about different things. Not just jump into someones else's thread and start asking many off topic questions.

So yes my computer is running in Dual channel. Now isn't there such thing as getting a CPU that can not come out of your computer? an integrated one I think it is called? If so. Is there anyway to be able to get a new one?

Those are typically found in Laptops and mobile devices. In your case, (per the other thread) you'd have to replace your entire motherboard. If you did that, you might as well go all the way and replace your case too, then eliminating HP from your setup altogether (eventually)

Well I want to try and do a clean install on my computer. But I still want to have programs to be able to burn DVD's and Cd's and ISO files onto DVD. Things like that. I am not sure if I will still have program to do all that stuff if I do a clean install and get rid of all the HP programs on my computer. That is why I still have not gone ahead and gotten rid of all the Hp software on my computer. I know that when I hit f11 on reboot it also pops up the HP advisor thing and asks me what I want to do like system restore recovery or what. So What will happen If I was to get rid of all the HP programs on my computer. Would it just straight up stop most things from working properly. That is what I am worried about. I mean I am talking about doing 2 different things here. One is do do the clean install. If I did I would lose all my cool software and I am afraid I would not be able to get it back without paying for it. Thew other would be to use PC decrapyfier and uninstall all the HP programs it says are bloat ware. Witch is all HP period. Is there anyway to get away with doing one of these and still having what I want?

By the way. Almost all of the cool DVD, CD, ISO burning programs are made by HP. But is there any other ones that are not I could get?

Would I be able to over clock my current processor do you know? I will not be buying a new one anyway. I think I will be done with this computer after I do the graphics card, RAM, and Maybe an SSD. I do not see what else I could really do. I mine as well start building my own Computer by then. I mine as well with all that money anyway. But I would like to make this one better than it is. I want to put it at a pretty good state before I Go ahead and build a computer from scratch. This way I will have a half decent computer while I build the next one. I know it will take me a long time before I complete a computer build. I do not have money for that stuff at all. Doing what I want to this computer is going to kill me. I just want to so bad. I can not help it. I really love computers. I want to really have a good one. I get to learn about them also.

It's a near certainty that any programs HP put on that PC can be replaced by equal or better programs at little or no cost. The exception might be Microsoft Office if that was included.

What specifically do you want to do with your PC with the HP programs?

Burn data CDs? Burn music CDs? Edit pictures or videos? Send email to grandma?

All of that and more can be done without anything from HP.

I' d guess you don't have Windows install discs and I'd guess you can only restore to the factory condition, which would give you all those HP programs. But they can be deleted, easily or otherwise.

Why would you want a PC that had an integrated processor if you could avoid it?

As far as I know, the HP Pavilion 6000 is a traditional desktop with a removable processor. You don't want that?

Maybe he thought it was something else.

He's got a lot of questions dancing around in his head it seems (which is ok, I get paid all.... oh wait... I'm not getting paid, silly me).

Windows 7 has an ISO burner built into it :P

Okay. I thought the ISO was in the system. And I do not want an integrated processor. I was basically asking if my PC came with one. That is all.

But I do and would like to get rid of all the HP crap that is on my computer. They have HP updates. Witch is stupid. It makes sure my computer is up to date. I have it turned right off. It doe not even boot with my computer. I turned that off also. Microsoft has there own update program. It also has an maintenance monitor. Do not need or want that. Also the HP advisor is also dumb. Do not use any of them. The only things I do want to keep are all the files burning softwares. I also have lightscribe. There is a couple really good programs that I do want to keep. But I am afraid that if I get rid of one of them it will ruin all of them. I do want to keep some of the media burner software yes. Some of it is very good. My next post will have all the programs that HP has on here that PC decrapifier says I can delete. I will show the picture of it. I at least would like to know witch programs are doing the same as others. But witch one I should keep. I am not sure if I get rid of one will that be the one that did more than the other. I really wish I had someone here at my house to just talk to me about it. I wish I had friends like you. I really hate this. It is so hard for me to try and explain all this stuff I want to know in these messages. I am really bad at this.

Just call me or come to my house.

Go to control panel/ programs and features, there you will see all the programs that are installed on your computer, highlite the one's you don't want and uninstall them one at a time.

I know to do that. What I am saying. Is that I am not sure witch ones I want to. I knowq how to do all that stuff. I just do not know witch ones do what I want. And witch ones don't. Witch ones can do everything I want. So can do some things that others can't. I also am not sure if I can get rid of HP advisor and HP.

Lets just do it this way.

Please tell me Witch of all of these programs I can delete. If you really want to help me. Please tell me witch ones I should keep to be able to do these tasks. 1. Burn ISO disks, DVD's, CD's, Make system Images to put my computer back to an earlier date. I think I would rather have Picasa then any of the photo editing programs. Plus all my picture are on Picasa. But if you see or know of one that is better let me know about it please.
