    Can't access websites. Can't run programs or restore.

    My mother has a tendency to screw up her computer, however, this time I'm stumped and don't know what to do. The following stuff below applies to regular mode as well as safe mode. For starters, most websites and applications don't work. Certain ones do, such as Google (with broken images)...

    Computer crashes during games.

    It took about 3 hours of gaming, but it eventually crashed. So, it is indeed my video card. I seem to recall trying putting the fan up to 100% before and still getting crashes, so I don't think it's a thermal issue. What are the chances that both PSUs are inadequate and just biting the bullet...

    Computer crashes during games.

    After trying a different PSU (Antec 450w with only bare-bone components), I can rule out any PSU issues. I guess that leaves three possible suspects. -Video Card -Motherboard -CPU (Extremely unlikely. Running at stock settings with a custom cooler). I'm going to put the video card into another...

    Computer crashes during games.

    I personally have huge problems considering it being the PSU since it's got such strong ampage on the 12V rails. I even unplugged my extra HDDs and all my optical drives, IN ADDITION to having no sound card. It was literally bare-bones. There's no way that would be too much stress. Could it be...

    Computer crashes during games.

    When I'm playing Warhammer Online or Crysis, my computer will suddenly hard-lock, and the monitor will lose connection with the video card (You know, when it says "POWERING OFF IN 5") forcing me to restart. I'm only going to list the components that are relevant. The only PCI card I have is my...

    Bad Sector. Windows shows the drive as blank?

    My mother got the blue screen of death out of nowhere on her fairly new Seagate 300GB HDD. Acronis Disk Director said that there is a single bad sector on the HDD, so I decided to pop it in my computer and see if I could repair it using Windows XP. Well, it turns out Windows thinks the HDD is...

    Starcraft and routers.

    Starcraft is notorious for being terrible at support with routers. My brother and I both have our own copies of Starcraft. What we want to do is be able to play in the same game, but we can't do this unless someone else hosts. Even then, it's very shakey and often one of us gets disconnected...

    The case fans were replaced.

    Exeedingly hot and loud PC.

    Alright. Two years ago, I built myself a PC. It ran like a dream, and it was very quiet and cool. Well, that isn't exactly the case anymore. The CPU gradually got hotter and hotter. The CPU fan got louder and louder, and my GPU got much hotter as well. I decided to do a very good cleaning. I...

    Super Loud CPU

    I did change the fan speed in the BIOS to 3300 RPM. I guess it is the fan, because that's still very loud. Can't go any lower.

    Asus P5ND2-SLI With Ati?

    No. You would need a Radeon Xpress 200 CrossFire edition chipset

    Super Loud CPU

    I'm pretty happy with the temps I'm getting. I'm wondering if I could get it to about 2500 RPM or so. The thing is, SpeedFan doesn't work with Asus boards. I'm not sure what else I can change. I'm pretty sure I could afford to loose a 1000 RPM.

    Super Loud CPU

    That did help a lot, but it's still at about 3300. Much much better, but I'm wondering if I can lower that even further.

    Super Loud CPU

    It is mounted correctly. Also, it's loud because it's running at 4300 RPM. The BIOS has crap for options when it comes to fan speeds.
