  2. when i was building computers for various clients of mine i brough 5 mobos, none of which worked. I found out that they had been dropped in the warehouse. It could of happened to yours.
  3. lol ( not funny but is :S) i have no idea what to do, youcould try that. or put it on the radiaotr upside down of something ( may damage it though)

    surly copy and paste will work? some shortcuts maynot work but you can do them manually buy [change target location]
  7. surley it doesnt come with those installed. if so wow. I must give it a try
  8. I have the XFX 7900 `xxx` edition, also with a weedy loud fan. I brought the zalman VF900 at my GPU now runs at 38deg idle and because of the 80mm fan it is practially silent. Have a look here
  9. The prob is that in europe we cant get evercool (well with out shipping) Zalman make some passive ones. I actally brought the smaller of the two and it fits and is all good, but i took it out cos i was a little scared of the temps being high. Asaka also make a Chipset fan which may also be sutiable

  14. well, if they hang they effectivly stop all procedures anyway since the screen isnt updating effectivly rendering your pc usless
  15. just a thought (only posted a min ago) it could be that the GPU is locking up and causing everything else to lockup, is there anyway you can try another GPU?
  16. no idea, i agree with PL4YD34D just RMA most of it you could try other components in other machines if you have them. Very odd though :S
  17. as a comp sci student we get free copies of xp from microsoft
  18. im not sure what it is, a quick look on the net i found this It could be a reason for windows not loading but installing ok
  19. mmm, odd. well give it a try. Its free so it wont hurt anyone
  20. i second Spybot S&D, a great program, also try AdAware another great free program. you can get both from download.com
  21. try downloading linux ( i recomend mandake, click the link to dl) mandrake dl then if linuz doesnt install you know there is definatly something wong with your hardware and could be the harddrives, motherboard, etc im at aber uni at the moment
  22. have you got any other copy of windows or even linux you could try and install? also where abouts in the uk are you?
  23. how much ram are you using to install windows, i think that windows will only really allow you to install with a max of 1 gb, not sure but i only ever install windows with a 1gb sitck
