  1. Sounds like a missing video driver. Post a pit test.
  2. Using more than ONE Anti Virus is not good for your system. I also see more than ONE firewall and more than ONE "ACTIVE" Antispyware program. And not knowing which version of xoftspy you are using this may apply to yours. [/size] And My main concern is WHY have you not EVER updated Windows. I also could go on forever about AOHell as well.
  3. A Trois Rivieres teenager whose antics with a mock lightsabre were seen by millions of people online has settled out of court with his alleged tormenters. The family of Ghyslain Raza, 17 - hailed by educators for putting a human face on the growing phenomenon of cyber-bullying - had sought $351,000 in damages from the fathers of three former Grade 11 students. The students allegedly posted the lightsabre video online in 2003 and labelled the teen the Star Wars Kid. But the office of the Raza family's lawyer, Francois Vigeant, said yesterday the dispute has been settled and the case will not be heard as scheduled at Quebec Superior Court on Monday. No details were provided. Ghyslain's parents, Jacques Raza and Marie Brouillet, recently dropped their lawsuit against a fourth former student. In 2003, the four students and Ghyslain were attending Seminaire St. Joseph - a posh private Catholic high school in Trois Rivieres. While students in Canada and the United States have taken their school boards to court for failing to protect them from bullying, the Raza case is one of the rare instances of a pupil suing an alleged tormenter directly. According to a 2004 study of Canadian students in Grades 4 to 8, 35 per cent of kids said they had been threatened online. Abuse of the Internet in this way is a matter of great concern, says Nancy Willard, an educational consultant and director of the Oregon-based Centre for Safe and Responsible Internet Use. more here http://www.canada.com/montrealgazette/news...cfa1ef2&k=14313

  6. I use ccleaner daily on seversl different computers and never had any problem with any of the functions, But that is me and I can fix it if it does screw the computer up. Munch is tottaly correct about reg cleaners and use them at your own risk. The start up cleaner is handy to remove those bad entrys from msconfig that are left over after you have cleaned up malware and crap on the computer.
  7. I have 2 sets of those so does my buddy at work as well. I second that reccomendation.
  8. How come that does not work with BEER.
  9. I had the same problem with my NEW x800AIW XT. Uninstalled old drivers and used driver cleaner but the results looked like yours. The other day I was messing around with my memory timeings and messed up my Raid array and windows wouldnt boot. So oh well reinstalled windows and used the newest ATI drivers and wham the card works like it should now. See the Tech results.
  10. You are limited because of the fact socket A processors are not made anymore.
  11. Now you will get the battle of ATI or Nvidia Fans. I would choose something with 256mb ram and 256bit If you can afford it. i would also consider if you powersupply came with your case looking in to replacing it with a Quality brand. Also How much RAM are you going to use. And you might be limited with that processor as well with some games.
  12. Follow the tune ups for your system. • Check IE Restricted Sites zone • Adjust Internet settings • Adjust IE browser cache size
  13. Goa'uld For an untold number of years the species was supposedly a dying race, unable to find hosts for their serpent form to exist within -- until a few thousand years ago, when the Supreme System Lord Ra, in a desperate pilgrimage through space to uncover his species' salvation, stumbled upon a planet of primitive humans: Earth. Ra harvested among the primitives and took the body of a young boy, seeding the rest upon different worlds in the galaxy as slave labor ers.
  14. Some email clients block images by default to protect you from scripts that can be included in pictures. For example outlook express will block pictures after the computer has been updated to SP2. We need to know how the email is recived to help you.
