  1. Does anybody have and ideas where I could hide some cables away in this case? My PC is a mess inside and I just added another hard drive and have another one coming. Here is a pic of my messy PC.
  2. Havent got the board situation sorted as such.. got my FSB clocked down a bit which has made it stable.. Just trying to improve my score and make it into 7-8k club
  3. I made it too http://www.pcpitstop.com/techexpress.asp?id=K4DXSW0R3AVS0JEG
  4. Sounds to me like you dont have Sound or Video drivers.. Heres a link to your motherboard here: Abit KV-80 I see you have onboard sound so you can get the right drivers for everything on your motherboard here: http://www2.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/d...PE=Socket%20754 You want to download the 'Realtek Audio Driver' for Win9x / Me / 2000 / XP / 2003 / 64bit I also see you have a nVIDA GeForce 6600 which you can get the latest official drivers for here: nVIDA GeForce 6 Series ForceWare Release 162 If those drivers dont work then it sounds like you have a more serious iss
  5. Have you tried swapping the memory from a working PC? You probably have tried this already but I just read over your posts quickly and may have missed something. I had all sorts of messy problems like you are having when I decided to buy the cheapest ram I could find... Since then I learned my lesson
  6. Maybe try setting the speed setting manually? My motherboard has problems recognising my CPU and it always sets the wrong setting and displays it as a 2000+ where it's a 3200+ so I set the FSB and multiplier manually and the motherboard correctly displays it as 3200+... wierd..
  7. May not be your videocard. I also get random lockups in Steam games when it does lock up the system is completly unresponsive.. sometimes it will lock up and sometimes it will lock up with black screen.. Mostly HL2 and CS:S and I have a X800 XT Platinum Edition
  8. Have these RW's been used before? Maybe try new discs.. I had the same problem with some 4x DVD-RW's that I have.. the problem was I would write something onto them with another burner then try to burn sometrhing or erase them on my burner and it would fail everytime... The problem was the other burner was burining/erasing them at 2x for some reason.. dunno why.. but my PC would only burn/erase it at 1x or 4x so it kicked up an error and ejected the disc.. The only way I could get it to work was to fully erase it on the other PC then it worked perfectly in mine.. go figure
  9. I had a similair problem with my computer except it would turn on then instantly lock up. My problem was my computer doesent play nice with IDE drives.. only a select few drives would allow my computer to boot. Even brand new drives would lock up my system. Only fix I found was to go to SATA drive and havent had problems since. Do you have any other drives you could try?
  10. First things first. You should check all the connection inside the PC are well secured if you are comfortable fiddling around in there. Always remember to ground yourself with a anti-static wrist strap or hold onto the case where there i some bare metal. If all the connections are secure you could try removing the cmos battery for about 10 minutes or so and then put it back in.. this should reset your CMOS setting if you accidentally changed something and now it's not booting. The cmos battery is the flat, round watch type battery only bigger. If after those steps you manage t
  11. When you were setting up Windows XP.. You did press F6 to install your raid drivers and insert the floppy right? sometimes it's the little things you forget
  12. Yep i'd say it's a memory issue also. Had the same problem in my PC windows kept telling me different files were missing each time.. I went through many cd roms before I thought to check the memory.. took one stick out and tried again and it installed flawlessly.. The brand new memory I had bough would not work very well together for some reason. so I ran it with just one stick and put the other stick in another PC and no problems yet
  13. That website seem to be working perfectly fine for me
  14. I have had bad experiences with Liteon drives I had 2 CD Burners die in a few weeks and 1 DVD Rom. I still think they are really great drives.. they worked flawless up until they died. After those drives I decided to buy a Pioneer 111D and am very happy with it, havent had a single coaster yet even with cheapo discs. You can also cross-flash it to enable Label Flash.
  15. I had the same problem with WoW.. Mine was a memory issue as well. swapped out one stick for another and now I have no problem installing it.
