Re: random freezes in xp

That could be a lot of things. CD/DVD accessing, computer trying to connect to a router, bad video drivers, or bad network settings.

Go with DMB2000uk's advice first, taskmanger. Then take mine in order I listed them.

Re: Problems with Windows ME

You can't convince her? Well, Win2000 looks exactly like WinME. And XP with it's visuals turned off looks like Win2000 which looks like WinME. So she won't be lost, there'll be no difference. Convince her it's more stable, reliable, secure, and crashes less. Hell, the fact that explorer can crash on...

Re: Vista 32-bit overclocking

Vista may be more sensitive to OCing because it's a bigger OS, but OCing should virtually be the same. Meaning, whatever's 100% stable in XP should be 100% stable in Vista. Maybe you weren't completely stable in XP.

Re: Buying ATI?

Wait, what? You have a crossfire mobo, and you want to crossfire, but you have an 8800GTS? Just keep the 8800GTS. If 2x3870 or 3870x2 isn't much better, whats the point? Are you planning on quad crossfire? That might not work on your mobo or the benefits for quad crossfire may be too little for you ...

Re: Discs keep spinning (on Windows)

I use a program called filemon.exe: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896642.aspx It's a little program that monitors every single thing that goes on with your hard drive. I notice on mine I have AVG antivirus, once a minute it chimes in, so does explorer.exe, and media player since ...

Re: 3850 vs 3870

Once you buy an aftermarket cooler, you lose the price vs performance ratio since you're spending needless money on a 3850+cooler to OC it to or faster than a 3870 when you could just buy the 3870. I've read many reviews where they OC the 3850 with stock and it's been fine. Maybe you pushed yours to...
