I've been running Win 7 x64 rock solid stable with 8gig for about a year.
In the past week, I get daily BSOD errors linked to hal.dll. Did a fresh install and same issues.
Today I ran Memtest for about 4 hours. After about 2 hours or so, I noticed that it had made 4 passes with zero...
Long story short, my Gigaworks 7.1 amplifier is dead so I need to buy a home theater receiver to drive my 7.1 gaming speakers.
I currently have a Soundblaster X-fi Xtremegamer card. I know I can buy a $20 cable that converts the three minijack outputs to 8 RCA-type connectors that I can plug...
I've got VMWare running quite well on my Vista 64 system.
Although I've created virtual machines and installed Vista and XP on them, would I REALLY would like is the ability to boot on of my actual hard drives in a window WHILE running Vista 64.
For example, I have my games set up on an XP...
I'm running on XP Pro SP2 with 163.71 drivers and 7800GTX SLI.
I've tried all the different settings for shadows but still get the problem you can see in the YouTube video:
Oddly, when I boot into my Vista drive, I do not get this problem...
I'm having an odd problem.
Recently I have had times where my system just shuts off in the middle of use as if it was suddenly unplugged. In addition, if I place the system in Standby mode and leave it alone for an extended period of time, the only way I can bring it back to life is to...
I'm about to throw myself out a window.....
Fresh XP SP2 install.
USB mouse was working fine.
I only updated THREE things:
#1 - From the Gigabyte CD - Installed the Marvel Ethernet drivers to get Internet access.
#2 - Went to Nvidia and downloaded the latest...
So... I've had this for 2 years and would like to pump up my CPU power.
Question is... with what?
The FX-53 runs at 2.4ghz.... and the X2 4000+ I believe is the same.
So... outside of dual core goodness (and yes... I realize that is nice), would I see any bump in my gaming?
Man! Who the hell created the graphics engine for Riddick!
After reading all the reviews for the Xbox, I reserved my PC copy at EBX and got it yesterday. After a problem with the copy protection (make sure if you are running Nero SpeedDisk to shut it down prior to trying to launching the...
I've got a Linksys 10/100 workgroup switch that shows that is autosensing my LAN at 100mbits (i.e. indicator light shows for 100 is lit for the connect computers).
However, when I xfer files and view the traffic with DUMeter, I am usually getting 8mbits at BEST!
Why would this be?
First some background of what I was *trying* to do:
Built a system with two drives (one EIDE 120meg and one 74gb SATA) for the purpose of creating a dual boot gaming system. My thought was I would go into the BIOS and select which drive to boot off of (either my work drive or my gaming...
Ok... I'm stumped on this one.
I've got a Toshiba DVD-Rom drive that, when working correctly, Sandra shows at 22x (although it is rated 48x...).
For some unknown reason, however, it suddenly goes REAL slow and when I test it, comes out at 4x CD-Rom speed.
I checked the IDE channel (it...
Just put together a new system (see sig).
I use DU Meter to monitor network traffic. On my old system, it stayed steady zero for u/l & d/l when I was not using the net.
Now, however, I've got activity on both even though not using the net.
Is there a utility to find out what process is...
My computer is in a completely seperate area of my home then my home audio system that feeds the entire house.
I wonder if there is a device that will take audio output, convert it to IP traffic, send it over my LAN, and then take that IP traffic and reconvert it to standard audio near my...
I'm in the process of planning for a new build in the next month (just prior to Doom 3's hopeful August release).
I'm narrowing on an FX-53 939-pin version (or possibly an Athlon64 939-pin) as well as the new ATI X800 XT.
I am brand spanking new to WC, and like the idea of an all-inclusive...
As monitor prices continue to plummet, one would hope that either Nvidia or ATI would offer a product with the Surround Gaming features (i.e. 3 monitor gameplay) of the horribly slow Matrox Parhelia.
Any word on this?
If not... any way to do it without a Parhelia?
