  1. Hi guys, am selling this computer on ebay. and the auction ends 2mrw. I have installed vista on the new system.

    1 gig ram
    2.66 pentium D
    160gb
    asrock 775i945GZ mobo
    onboard graphics intel GMA 945/950

    I cant install kasperksy antivirus, or any other antiviruses.

    call of duty uo wont play, and it runs perfect on this system with xp
    gta 3 runs fine for 20 secs then screen goes black, then resumes.

    the windows system itself is running fine, browsing, and watching movies.


    So call of duty uo......

    when i start it, i run it in lowest possible graphic settings, the intro videos run slow, and the sound is glitchy.

    then when i finally get to start a enw game, as soon as it loads, it lasts about 2 seconds then it gives error message saying delete 5mb to play it.

    I have 120gig free!!

    When i went to install the onboard graphic drivers they wer already on, and said the version i had wer older, so vista has new ones. could thsi be the problem?

    can any one help :S??

    I have till 11am GMT to fix this problem, or i will get a negative feedback :(

    hi pcrepairs. you are not going to be able to fix all of these problems in one shot. i can help you with a few though.

    antivirus: you will need to download the VISTA-Compatible versions of these programs. most of the major companies have already released them, such as avg and kaspersky.

    call of duty 2: you need a good video card to run this game. onboard video will not cut it.

    Lots of programs don't work on Vista yet - get used to it. This is especially true if you're using the 64-bit verison.

    Either put XP on it or pray that updates get released that fix your problems. :)
