LMAO, I had to re-format my PC again!

Well, it started the same damn symptoms as last time. First, my audio quality went downhill. Then I lost the ability to play DVD's. Then I lost my audio completley. then BAM! My registry went to shit. My virus scan picked up a virus, but it wouldn't delete or quarantine it. I ran it again, same thing. A third time, then it came back clean, no virii, I was like WTF? I was getting 120+ registry errors within a few minutes apart. My virus scan was coming back clean. WTH? I just re-formatted and said the hell with it. If it does that shit again, I'm selling.


Anybody want a P4 1.7, 640MB, SDram, 140GBHdd's, GF4Ti4400, and Audigy 5.1 Gamer?

I'm really not selling it, I"m just pissed that it did it twice in less than 2 months. I can't figure out why.

sorry to hear about your issues. i have a question for you though. co-worker of mine has the same video card you have and he's having issues with it. he says his brightness is way low...he adjusts it in the video card properties i guess, and all is good. when he reboots it goes back to his previous settings. have you had this issue w/ that card?

Free? Where do I pick it up at?


Question, after formatting and then reinstalling everything did you download all MS's patches? This includes the driver updates?

I have a 4400 card myself and with the latest drivers from NVid but I've been reading about an issue with the latest verison of there drivers causing the display to grow dark. I've not experianced this but what I've read said to use the drivers from eariler this year.

Also is this box a clone or name brand?

By Box is a HP 7965, but I ripped the guts out and gave them a new case. I'm still re-formatting it, because I only got to disc 3 outta 7 before I got sleepy and called it a night. The only reason I've been posting at all is because I"m always at work.

I download all of the patches from MS and NVidia, well, except I won't DL the SP1 patch from Microsoft this time.
It has compatibility issues with HP PC's. I've never had that display problem, and I use the 45.23 patch from NVidia. (newest)
