Okay, I ordered this 7600GT thinking that I had a 475W psu. This was not the case. I only had a 375w. I should have checked, but didnt. Oh well, no big deal, I have some cash, because im saving for a new car stereo, and I have a job that pays well and I work 40 hours a week.
Anyways, I try the video card on the computer. You know, boot into safe take everything of ATI out and then stick in the new card. Then I boot up, and everything is going great. So I install the drivesr (62.xx) something off the cd. And then I try playing a game. Natta.
So, I try and update the drivers. Apparently the drivers dont support the video card
Now im kinda pissed, knowing I HAVE to get a new psu. But okay okay, I can deal.
So I boot into safe again, take out all the nVidia stuff, stick in the old x300. Download all the stuff for that, even though its lagy like none other. I reboot and all seems well, but I notice that in the bottom right hand corner my colors are fading. Red looks pink down there. And now browsing the web and stuff, I get the lagg on the pages. Whatever, now im downloading the second optional entertainment pack to see if that solves it.
In the mean time, I am trying to get this dual moniter set up going. I mean, it looks good, but now I cant enable a second moniter. >.-
Okay, maybe the entertainment pack will do that. Now im thourighly pissed. Because im moving all my desk stuff to make room for this second moniter, I need to rearrage my speakers, I have cloths thrown on the floor from working so much, im sore, my mom is pissed because I need to get a new psu. Great day so far? To top it all off im sick. Installing the second thing now, lets see what happens.
Be back to post more, but the lagg, and the drivers, and the video cards and stuff, I think a reformat is in order. Only problem with that is that, I have like 7 games of my friends on my computer, and I got cd cracks for all of them. And I dont want to do it again.
Fun, Fun, Fun.
I posted it here, because it relates too all computer problems, but none the less, im dealing with it.. About to hit the computer, but I am. So, what do you think? Am I having fun yet?
