  1. gnasche, should you ever need a body to come between yours and a bullet, I give you permission to hurl mine in the way. I didn't install the driver for the ethernet thingy apparently, once I did that I moved the cable back to the one that was unresponsive, and now I'm posting this on my new computer! woot! (and thanks btw)
  2. This is taken from my post in Off Topic (shoulda known I wouldn't get any help there): I've got my new computer all up and running, but it won't connect to the internet. I basically took my old box off of all the wires in back (VGA, audio, keyboard, etc) including the network cable and plugged it all into my new computer. I've run the Network setup wizard on all computers a few times, tried unplugging the router, all with no result. What I can say is this: I have two LAN-ish ports in the back of my new computer. When I plug the cable into one port, nothing happens. When I plug the cable into the other port, two lights light up around it...one amber one red. What seems to be the prob?
  3. I just ordered my new computer, which included the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+, and I also ordered WinXP Home OEM cause that's what I have on this one and I'm used to it. I just checked Microsoft's website and they say Pro supports multiprocessors but Home doesn't...does that mean my CPU won't work right because I'll be using Home?? http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/howtobuy/choosing2.mspx It's the 8th button down. Thanks!
  4. **The statements below are pure opinion** If space isn't big major issue, think about just getting a newer/nicer CRT monitor. I've never liked how things looked on LCD monitors, but then again I haven't seriously considered getting one enough to actually look at a bunch. CRT's seem so much clearer.
  5. Thanks for the info gnasche, great help as always
  6. Just when I begin to think I'm pretty handy and educated about computers, I have a truly n00btastic moment and my head deflates... ...so I just discovered Coolbits. I had heard of overclocking several times before, but never understood exactly how people do it. So after tinkering around with it on my old machine, it's making me wonder...is it even worth it spending the extra money on an overclocked video card? Take the following two cards for example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814150108 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16814150104 First of all, I can't find anything from nVidia saying the GT is any different from the GTX, so I'm assuming there is none besides speed. Second, if speed is the only difference, then couldn't I just manually overclock the card myself and get the exact same results and save $100 or more? If the GT and GTX really are different in ways other than speed, then I guess my question can still apply to two GTX cards, one OC one not. Thanks for any help in advance!
  7. Bumpin for some lovin
  8. P4 2.53ghz 1024MB RAMBUS RAM ti4600 I turned on the NT4.0 thingy and used the ntweaker to tune to "Xtreme-G Series 6 HD 1" or something like that. Result: Infantry regularly 30+, almost no stutters to 10fps or less whatsoever in light/medium population area Flight regularly 40 - 50+, with some stutters to 10fps or less (far less than before though). This is all up from about 20 - 30 avg, and 25 - 35 avg, respectively...with some stutters on inf and many stutters on aircraft before ntweaker and NT4.0

What I'm afraid of is if it was meant to handle the ti4600 at its best, then would I even really benefit from possibly buying a 6800 or 7-series geforce card?
  10. OMG I LOVE YOU!!! You now have your own personal b*tch for today...command me master!* *NOTE: BgBopper will be nobody's b*tch for today, or any day for that matter. Although he fully appreciates and thanks you for your help and kindness.
  11. updated directx, same problem
  12. Totally unrelated to WWIIOL, but when I play certain .avi movies the video flashes very frequently (like every other frame or two is black, so it's like a slow strobe light) and there are giant tetris-like boxes of just black in the video. This happens when I play SgtSpoon's con videos as well. I downloaded and installed xvid I already have divx (maybe outdated? I don't know) any other recommendations or things to check?
