  1. I am back with more tales of woe!!
    I recently installed a new vidcard in an old computer.The card is a GeF 5500oc,the computer is a P3-667 with an Asus P3V4X via 133 chipset.The system is unstable at times.Locking up in screen-saver mode,occasionly rebooting to the Microsoft Windows 98 title screen.Also when trying to load a game(Diablo)
    I occasionly get a black screen with a symbol in the top left corner.
    FIrst #,then changes to $,and then %
    But,on the occassions that the games load--they play smoothly with good fps!!

    The easyiest thing to do is probaly just reformat your computer. Also the keyboard symbols will change if you change the language of your keyboard, like from English,UK to English,USA.
