    Far Cry Cutscenes

    Hi, I have a rather frustrating and annoying problem. The cutscenes in Far Cry skip and lag to the point of the ludicrous. I get about 3 seconds of smoothe video, then three seconds of choppy video, then three seconds of smoothe video with no sound, then three seconds of choppy video, etc...

    New Video Card Doesn't Help

    Returned it and got a 9600 All In Wonder. It has RCA in and out, a coaxial in, and a remote control...and I get MUCH better framerates out of it...AND it only cost $40 more. I love Best Buy.

    New Video Card Doesn't Help

    I have an 1800 mHz processor, 512 MB RAM, and I used to have a GeForce 4 Ti 4200 Video Card. Just tonight, I got an ATI Radeon 9600 SE, a significantly better video card. However, I have noticed NO increase in framerate on higher graphics settings. I tried out both Halo PC and Lord of the...

    Comp freezes when doing anything cool

    Ok, I'm about to have a nervous breakdown if I can't get a fix to this. I hope somebody can help. In November, my video card caught fire, destroying my mboard and PSU. I got a new mboard (ASUS A7N266-VM, nForce chipset, not sure which one), and waited for my replacement card to come while...

    Random crash about to drive me loony

    Though less often now than before, I am still getting a random crash despite the fact that I have removed the card and started using on board video. Any idea where the damage could be?

    Random crash about to drive me loony

    I've got three fans blowing on this stupid thing now. It lengthens the time I get before the crash, but the crash still happens and the card still gets hot enough to burn my fingers without me even doing anything besides web browsing. The best performance I've had yet is before I was able to...

    Random crash about to drive me loony

    yes, i figured it might be a slightly defective card, but i also found an empty fan slot near it in the tower, so i got a fan for it. unfortunately, the screws don't fit the tower, so i'll be getting it installed somewhere else. Until then, i decided to rest it on the video card to cool it off...

    Random crash about to drive me loony

    I found the problem. I touched my video card last night and it burned my fingers. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is bad.

    Asus A7N8X Problems

    It could be the power supply. That's a monster of a machine, so if it's underpowered, that could be the problem. Don't know how much you need, but I'd say at least a 400w.

    Random crash about to drive me loony

    DIMM as in the RAM slots? If so, then yes, but removing one doesn't help. I did that to test the memory.

    Random crash about to drive me loony

    As the title of the thread says, I am at my wits' end over this stupid crash. I have had prepetual problems with this comp since November! :mad: In November, my video card (a PNY Verto GeForce 4 Ti 4200) became a victim of...guess...wrong...I'll bet you never guess...wrong again...give up? Ok...
