    Computer turning on/off problem...

    Well, I just reset with the CMOS jumper, then updated the BIOS to 3.17 but it still has those problems. It doesn't remember my BIOS settings and comes up with a checksum error and it has loaded the default settings. This only happens when I turn it off at the wall. It also turns straight on when...

    Computer turning on/off problem...

    Just did that, and I found out what the problem was with the power switch (just needed a adapter thing from the old case). But the computer still turns on when turned on at the wall. Also, it comes up with CMOS error just after the screen where you can get into bios and it doesn't remember the...

    Good task manager

    Anyone know of a good program to monitor all your tasks (hidden etc.), I had a decent one before but it was free to try and I can't remember what it was called. Also, does anyone seem to notice firefox uses a lot of resources? For me it seems to be 70,000 - 100,000 K with a few tabs open, while...

    Problem...

    Thanks for the reply's guys. I actually just cleaned it out; took fans off and wiped them, cleaned heatsink (hell of a lot of dust to be cleaned after 3 years lol...) but don't have any thermal paste right now to reapply. Also formatted and reinstalled from recovery discs. Thanks for the links...

    Alright thanks will do... Also one thing, on my Xbox when I test connection, it says my NAT is strict thus somewhat limiting me from joining some games and chatting with some people. Any way I can 'loosen' it?

Well, my modem and wireless only have one Ethernet slot each, plugged into each other. I have 6 computers all in different rooms of the...

    Computer won't turn on

    Oh OK, thanks I'll check that out soon, just one thing though...Why would it just start happening now? And I would think everything would already be default because I haven't changed any settings in there.

    Computer won't turn on

    OK well it happened again today...It seems that when I hit the power button when it's off (draining PSU?) it seems to boot up fine, so I'm able to go on it atm. I didn't get a mobo manual with the computer, and it seems ASUS doesn't have my mobo on their list on their website... But having a...

    New GTA4 Preview.

    That looks pretty darn cool...The only downfall is that the graphics are a little dated, but as newconroer has already said, gta was never really about graphics... I like this though lol: "* It is possible to surf the internet in GTA4 via internet cafés. It is available from any computer in...

    RPG Games

    I played Oblivion mostly on my 360. But I used a Oblivion mod called Oldblivion which helps older cards run Oblivion, and it ran pretty decently on my 9200. Can't play Shivering Isles on PC though, as it doesn't work on Oldblivion yet. Knights of the old Republic I've played and it really was a...
