I wans't quite sure of the problem, and the title of this board is all I could say to really sum it up. Ok - from the top I guess. I never had any problems with my computer until it began overheating. This was fixed after about a month by cleaning all the accumulated dust and such that was around the fan (I had no idea where it was or of the dust so lucky that was a quickish fix.) This stopped all the crashing that happened then. A week later my graphics card stops working, which, after much antagonizing, was fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. BUT then the next day I restart my computer - there is no sound. I know that it is nothing to do with my speakers, because they are relatively new and have worked very well in the past. SO I turn off my computer and come back to it later that day. I start my computer up again, this time the sound is working along with the graphics card - but no wireless network to be seen in 'My Network Connections'. Once more I restart the computer - and everything is working. The next morning I happily restart my computer, assuming everything is the same as it was yesterday - but I'm back to the beginning. The driver for my video card isn't working. So I go through the same process again. And again. And again. And each time it gets fixed, but each time I have to uninstall and re-install the driver for the video card and restart my computer over and over until everything is working. I do a virus check - nothing. Chkdisk finds and corrects a few errors in security descriptors. Oh, and what scared me the other day - a little yellow error box popping up in the corner of the screen that said the file C:/Windows is corrupt. I would really like to blame the video card, but I' m beginning to think ikt's a bigger problem than that... I had another board posted about my video card issues, but I couldn't find it again this time... So I decided to post here - but I'm not quite sure if this is even the right place. Ok, some information on my system that may or may not help: I'm using Windows XP Home Edition. This is what dxdiag says for system information: Machine name: CONCORDE2 Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: AWARD_ System Model: AWRDACPI BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs) Memory: 768MB RAM Page File: 278MB used, 1215MB available Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904) DX Setup Parameters: Not found DxDiag Version: 5.03.2600.2180 32bit Unicode When I run dxdiag (when my driver for my graphics card is working), in display it says under device: Card name: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE Manufacturer: NVIDIA Chip type: GeForce FX 5700LE DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Device Key: Enum\PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0343&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_A1 Display Memory: 256.0 MB Current Mode: 800 x 600 (16 bit) (60Hz) Monitor: IBM 6547 That's pretty much all... just ask if you need anymore... and probably tell me where to find it because I'm slightly hopeless. Please help?
