    Red lines across screen, won't boot unless in safe mode - Vista 32bit

    Yesterday, whilst playing COD4, my computer suddenly froze (still don't know why). After re-booting the pc, everything seemed normal, until it crashed again, but this time with red dotted lines sprawled across the screen. I rebooted the PC, and my first thought was to run my anti virus (AVG)...

    (please note, where I mention I tried renaming a file called iw3mp.exe, it was actually called mssmp3.asi and details of the thread which suggested it can be found here; http://www.shanecotee.com/blog/?p=5 )

    Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Error - iw3mp.exe has stopped working

    I have just bought 'call of duty 4: modern warfare' and installed it on my PC, however, when I try to run the game, it crashes giving the error message "iw3mp.exe has stopped working". This is the same with multiplayer. I have read around and found several other posts on the web with similar...

    Dx10, Crysis, Assasins Creed, Gears of War, WIC - What next...!

    Just an informal debate - Its hard to deny that Dx10 ha revolutionised modern gaming - and perhaps saved the PC genre from falling hopelessly behind the 'next-gen-games consoles'. The games are certainly stunning, and doubtless, there will be many more of higher calibre, but what will be...

    Windows Vista will not recognize dvd drive

    I had the exact same problem as you two. It is often caused by installing a piece of software that is not compatable (i.e doesn't agree with) with Vista. Many people have this problem or similar. I found by searching forums that there is a way to solve the problem. It might sound complicated...

    does anyone suggest actually getting vista??

    By the way... VISTA + LAPTOPS = :( Vista is ok on laptops, but is liable to run slower and some of the effect (like aero glass) will run slower or might not function due to limited graphics capability on laptops. I would strongly recomend an investment in desktop PC components to 'beef...

    To ikiscompisbroken This one of my posts to another member on another thread, but I think it is relevant to your question; "To MercZire, I have upgraded to vista (long story) and just to tell you, that if you have a macho-enough graphics card and processor, then Dx10 is all its...

    Upgrading to Vista

    (Slightly off topic) To MercZire, I have upgraded to vista (long story) and just to tell you, that if you have a macho-enough graphics card and processor, then Dx10 is all its cracked up to be. Its well worth upgrading. Many people say there are too many problems with vista, but in my...
