I'm having a problem that started yesterday - when I turn on my comp it detects the cpu but hangs at the memory test and just stays there. When I take out one of the memory sticks (2x512) it works fine regardless of which stick and regardless of memory bank but when I try to run both...
I bought a new linksys router (BEFSX41) and it has firmware 1.50.18 and the problem I've been having with it is that I can't set it to stop my AIM from signing on and off every 5 minutes, I checked the settings to allow more time but its just not there. I was wondering if anybody...
I purchased a 19" Nec Multisync Fe991sb in February of this year from Newegg and I noticed that it has developed 10 vertical dark lines in the middle of the screen that are readily apparent when the background is white or light colored. Is this normal? I read the owners manual and...
Ok - who has found it and where? Employees at Gamestop at 10:30am were dragging their feet and hadn't unpacked it and were unwilling.
Damnit - I need to find a better video game store.
Hopefully I'll find it by the end of the day.
I tried it when it initially came out but I found it rather dry and lacking. I'm a bad Star Wars nerd and I've been following the latest expansion plus the one planned in May.
I was wondering if anybody that still plays it had any input on the current state of the game - I'm...
I picked up the game yesterday and when I launch it I get black screen that says:

I found this game at Gamestop for $10 and picked it up considering the upcoming game coming out and I figured I would try it out. Man - this game is great! I can't believe I missed it but I'm glad I decided to give it a shot - I only got 1 hour of sleep before class this morning. :o
I have an Antec case exactly like this and I was looking for something to elevate it off the ground so as to not have it on the floor. I would also prefer it to have wheels so that I could roll it out of the way to vacuum under it as well as when moving it to clean the dust out of...
I recently upgraded my video card from an Ati Radeon 9800 pro to a Bfg 6800 Ultra o/c and while seeing how various games performed, I was able to set Doom 3 up to ultra high settings (rest of system being in my sig) and it looked better than I had ever imagined - I only played through...

I enjoy Rockstar's games and when I heard it was coming to pc I've been anticipating it - especially after all the negative press about it being so gruesome.
Anybody pick it up? details! I want some details!

I'm working on building my gaming comp based on an AMD XP 3200+ with the Abit NF7S V2.0 and 1 stick 512mb pc 3200 Crucial RAM. The question is the onboard audio - I'm no audiophile and I do prefer to have decent sound for my gaming, I'm not really picky - if it sounds ok, I'm...
I'm upgrading my comp that I use primarily for gaming. I have the ABIT Nf7s v2.0 motherboard that will be mated to an amd xp 3000+. I was concerned with the amount and type of RAM to use - video card is an ati radeon 9600xt.

I was in the process of upgrading my AMD system and ordering RAM for the new motherboard and it supports dual channel mode.
