    I am having problems with my 6month old Emachine.

    I posted in Games but there was no responce so I'm thinging it should be here.

    First of all I have just reinstalled from scratch. XP s/p2 home. I have updated Nview fx5500 from the home page as well as mobo bios and Dirct X9.0c

    Removed 18 adware with Lavasoft adware SE and installed my gamer firewall Kerio.

    My system hanges and when trying to go into a game, on or off line the mouse seems to stick and moves/updates very slowly. Also the frame rate seems very slow as well.

    Also when trying to launch the latest game, Anarcy on line, it gives the error: unable to connect to display drivers:using default
    The game hangs so bad I can't even move.


    I really hope something can be done.I have added the bigger vid and more memory in hopes that this would actually run like a 3.2,,seems more like a 700mgz

    PLEASE HELP :p

    Try reinstalling the gfx's driver, somehow you may have gotten a corrupted download of the driver.Try it from the top uninstall delete,then reinstall.

    after trying that and speaking toBFG tech support, they said that any driver after 77.72 would not really help this card. the game however still does the same thing.. At this point I'm thinging a newer express card is in order since I have an express slot.

    Yeah, that would let you play what you want, just make sure to check the PSU to make sure that it will power the new gfx's card. Happy Gaming.:D
