If you read on it is only the keyboard and mouse. :4-dontkno
If you look in your machine just above the video card slot there may be a number in white. Could you look and let us know what the number is?
well sadly i still have the same problem i was really hoping that would fix it guess i should start from the beginning...
i was having a lot of problems with spyware and other stuff like it so i decided to format my PC i downloaded all updated drivers and fully updated windows expecting everything to work fine (had done many many formats in the past with no problem)
my problem was that every time i tried to play a game it would lock up my whole system and i would have to hard boot after, firstly i thought it was my graphics card since the fan on it recently stopped working so i put in a different graphics card but the problem was still there a friend of mine said it might have been my memory so i changed that with brand new memory before i had 2x 256 DRR sticks i replaced that with a single 512 DRR stick still had the problem and finally he thought it might be the sound card drivers *cries*
this is where it gets weird after i changed the memory i re subbed my account for Asheron's call a 3D MMOPRG i have no problems with crashing while playing this game for hours at a time but as soon as i play Vietcong or heroes of might of magic 2 (this one just reboots my system) Arcanum also locks my system all lockups happen after 10-15 minutes of play
at first i thought it was hardware but if Asheron's Call works and every other game doesn't i am guessing its software but after a fresh format i cant see what it could be anymore
please let me know what information you need id screens shots of any kind files or a dxdiag
really appreciate the time your all taking to helping me
