OO and also, i have SP2 now and i only had SP1 on my old hard drive
Well just a while ago, i had a MAJOR problem with my winodws. I mean it was so bad i couldnt even access the windows folder in linux.
Well im past that now, been for about 3 months actually. What i did was i got a new hard drive, installed windows on it, then used knoppix linux to move over old important files.
Now i have all the newest drivers and updates installed for all my hardware on my computer. But still my gfx runs so slow. Alot of times movies wont play, ill get this green screen and nothing runs. Icons on my desktop hav this weird black stuff surrounding them. And i cant play any of the games i used to with no trouble.
Actually the games were how i first noticed it. I used to be able to play things like Counter Strike: Source with now problems. Half Life 2 was a long load, but still worked just fine. When i lost my computer i went on HL2 withdrawls, when i got my new hard drive in i was so ready to play, and found i couldnt even load Day of Defeat without my comp. crashing.
Well at first i thought it was my powersource, which isnt that powerfull, and i had my old hard drive hooked up along with my new one, so i thought that was the problem. But now i have that one unhooked and still experience all the same problems.
I have tried doing everything with the settings on my video card and nothing seems to work, HELP ME!!
PS: Oh yea, also ive been having problems with my computers RAM. I used to be able to render things in Terragen, and UltraFractal so much fast then i can now, once again all help is appreciated!!
