    Packet loss, Guild Wars unplayable

    Yes, I am in the US and the last pccw server I hit is usually in LA. From all the items I read before posting, I had the impression changing ISP's would be the only solution. So my ISP could put pressure on PCCW to fix their problem, but likely will not?

    Packet loss, Guild Wars unplayable

    Perhaps at one time (or still is) but now, "a global service provider with offices throughout Asia, North America, South America, Europe and the Middle East." http://www.aboutus.org/Pccwbtn.com

    Packet loss, Guild Wars unplayable

    I have been back and forth with the GW support team about ingame lag that (at times) makes the game unplayable. To make a long story short, they asked me to run a program called pingplotter while playing to see where I am losing packets. There is 10-100% packet loss, but it is occurring at...

    Dual install patch versions COD4?

    In Call of Duty 4 Does anyone know how to run two patch versions (unpatched game and 1.6) on the same computer? Thanks

    RMA question

    Thanks for the input :D I did get it from the Egg. No, in retrospect, buying the ATI branded card would have been worth the extra $ based on what I have read and heard from friends. A friend who had an x700 die, possibly from OC'ing, contacted ATi about an RMA, and he had a brand new...

    Here's what it says: "RMA Replacement If you receive a defective item and would like to exchange it for a replacement of the same make and model, select RMA Replacement. Please note that all packing materials, manuals, diskettes, CDs, digital media, blank warranty cards and other...

    RMA question

    So I had enough of my x1950pro VRM's overheating and I RMA'd it to the etailer I purchased it from. I have had the card for awhile so I could only get it serviced or replaced. I guess I am lucky, but I never had to RMA anything before. Anyway, I sent EVERYTHING in as instructed: card, cables...

    RivaTuner's Fan Function does not work

    Good info, but still doesn't work for me. I have tried the above instructions (with 8600gts, 158.22, 2.01) and the fan tab still doesn't show up. It is apparently a driver/riva thing because every time I load up rivatuner after all the rebooting I get a message saying that my driver is...

    8600gts Standard

    Yeah we are talking about 8600..... Also, the fan doesn't seem to change speeds when in a 3D app. and when I set the fan to 100% with rivatuner, I still can't see or hear a difference. What's up with that?

    8600gts Standard

    Well, I just got my card and I was able to get my core up to 750, but I can only get my memory up to 1045 :confused: It stays fairly cool, though, only topping out at 75C at load. I am using ATItool 0.26 and I see small artifacts past 1045 on the memory. Why would the OC on the mem be so low...
