Before you reply.... should I reformat? or ..what should I do? help ----> Is there a way I can reformat my PC to where it was when it was brand new. Because I'm having video problems as well as sound issues while I play video games. I have posted a topic under the sound and video section of the forums where you may find more information about my problem. I have read on another topic here that you can format your pc to where it was at the brand new point. When I first purchased my pc it was running games like Counter-strike with no problem at all. Now I can run the lowest pc requirments game like a Nintendo game... 'Mario' .. or something on an emulator and that runs horrible, slow-mo every 20 seconds then plays fine.. and then a few minutes later I'll encounter the same problem. Can anyone help me on this? Its been like this for over a year. And I really would like to fix this problem.
