Transfer all your itunes files into your external then the next time you open itunes it'll ask to search for the destination of the files, direct it to your new files location and should update the library back to how it was.

when i upload things to itunes are the only stored there or elsewhere too as i think if that's the case they are poss taking up all my memory

i've tried using the external hard drive for itunes but can't seem to get it to completely transfer
any ideas??

In My Music folder. The path is C:\users\<username\My Music\
(where <username> is whatever your windows account is called)
Also download and run CCleaner, should clear up a lot as well.

Also, when we say memory, it will be normally taken to mean RAM. A low memory problem will normally get this advice: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows-vista/Preventing-low-memory-problems


Thanks for the ccleaner tip managed to obtain a couple of GB's back, I've located the iTunes folder in the music folder and have dragged it over to copy onto the external hard drive my only query is can I now delete it from the laptop??? I'm scared!!!

First empty your itunes library Sue, then select the folder on your external as your source folder for music. Then it's safe to delete the music in your itunes folder...

Anyone know much about the new Intel socket 2011 CPUs?

Thinking of upgrading my pc soon and was wondering what the advantages of them are over the socket 1155 i7.

Apparently, the motherboards will support upto 128GB of RAM, dependent on the cpu used, which will have the capacity of more than 8 cores.

At least an i5 cpu. The motherboard should some expansion room should you want to upgrade the cpu/gpu in the future.
Depending on what your budget is, will depend on the graphics card you can get. If you don't play very graphically intense games, like your Football Managers of the world, you could make do with the Intel HD 3000 integrated chip (although obviously can't upgrade, and it struggles with new, high end games).
Do you mean rewriteable blurays, or a bluray drive with cd/dvd RW functions? There isn't that much need for a BD-RW at the moment, and playing commercial blurays on a bluray drive on your computer is a fucking pain in the arse because you have to decrypt the video before playing it through media player classic (which is the only freeware software that will play decrypted bluray video properly without lag or stuttering).
Make sure you have a monitor with HDMI input, and that your computer has HDMI output, it will make a massive difference to the image quality you receive, even at the same resolutions (you can use an HD tv if you don't have a monitor).

Also, a minimum of 8GB RAM is a must, and an SSD would be a nice extra as the read/write times are much improved over a normal HDD. They are massively expensive for what they are though

Spot on help as always fella.....

Well the info on picture lag was exactly what I was getting I have an absolute spanking full HD all singing all dancing monitor so knew it was not that,not really into playing high end games I use the xbox for that..all be it the pc games look better...

I want to have hdmi output from the pc so I could if wanted to link it to my series 7 samsung
The main things I would like to start on would be the motherboard and CPU as the ones I have our well out of date...and the motherboard has quite poor reviews and is quite limited to its upgrades aparently...

I guess the main reasons I want the upgrades is..well its needed lol and I like to take photos wherever I go I watch films off torrent sites quite regular also I like using CAD software to design things like xbox cases and so on (it's a hobby of mine i customize,resprays and so on)
Also projects for around the house usually are designed on the pc before I build...and hopefully during the summer I plan to build a CNC machine...

Price is not to much of a problem to be honest...the way I see it if it works well it's worth the price... Smile

Any good sites you know of for parts and so on?

Thanks D big help!

If you're not limited on budget and do a lot of CAD and photoshop work I'd fork out the extra cash for an i7. Only real difference between this and the i5 is that it has 6 cores instead of 4 and it utilising hyperthreading making cpu intensive programs, run quicker. i5s are awesome too (i plan on getting one very soon). Gaming wise there's next to no difference between the i5 ad i7.

As durrell said 8Gb is a must. No need to fork out the extra for ddr3 1866mhz. Go for ddr 1600mhz. cheaper and practically same performance.

Motherboard. Go for a z68. Gigabyte do a board that is very highly rated for as little as £80!

STATIC IP address vs DYNAMIC IP address, which one helps for quick downloads, if it makes any difference at all?

Static, as you can forward all the ports through your firewall. Depending on your internet connection though, that might not make a difference. For me I still get 2mb/s download without any forwarding

Thanks! But I guess I should've mentioned I've disabled my router's firewall. Does that alter your answer?

You shouldn't do that (unless you've DMZed), as it makes everyone else using the router vulnerable

I've got 3 computers working on the router and I have Avast Web, P2P shield running on them all. Im not sure if its DMZed, but doesnt DMZ need enabling the firewall?

DMZ will only disable the firewall for a specific IP on your network, so the others are not affected.
