  1. Yeah the temperatures were climbing and fans weren't picking up, so I decided not to risk seeing what would happen further and ran the cpu fan straight off the psu.
  2. Try this: Right click on 'my computer', properties. brings up system properties. click on advanced tab, click on settings in performance section. on visual effects tab, scroll down to bottom and tick 'use drop shadows for icons on the desktop'. if it's already ticked, untick it and then tick it again. Apply, ok, ok.
  3. with P4s intel just kept bumping up the clock speed instead of actually working out more efficient ways of doing stuff. Chips from amd with much lower clock speeds were still much better. this has changed now with intel multi core
  4. what does come up when you press shift and 3? try removing US english as an option in language selection in case it's using it even though it's not set to. if worst comes to it as a temporary thing you can use on screen keyboard to get pound sign
  5. Hi I have a new am2 motherboard running 4600+ dual core, and the fans are running really slowly (only bout 950rpm - full speed should be bout 3000). it has headers for cpu, system and power fans, but only the cpu and system (for rear fan) headers run slowly. plugging same fan into front power header it runs fine at full speed, plugging any fans direct from psu adapter runs full speed fine. I know my psu is fine, and the fans too. there is no setting or info in bios pertaining to fan speed or any monitoring whatsoever, and cpu intensive use doesn't alter speed. I tried 'speed fan', it can see the speeds but can't alter them. What does anyone think? is the motherboard faulty?
  6. yes try flipping the plug 180 into the drive. won't damage if it's wrong but might work
  7. Hi if you mean the new coj, bound in blood, it's supposed to be pretty good. if it's the first one I wouldn't bother even though you'll get it really cheap now.
  8. Cheap vga>dvi adapter on ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DVI-I-FEMALE-to-VGA-MALE-ADAPTOR-CONVERTER-SENT-TODAY_W0QQitemZ370109132125QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL?hash=item370109132125&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1700|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318
  9. Get resi 4 if you haven't already - much more interesting than an on rails shooter, much longer, cheap (from bout £10 on ebay) AND, despite being old, still amazing!!
  10. You could try downloading memtest 86 and leave it running overnight to test the memory. Also check your temps with speedfan
