Re: Computer Issue Fixed

they ended up testing lots of different graphics cards and all of them overheated. they left my pc many times to do over night 3dmarks06 tests of which all passed with 15000 score. it was due to a fault motherboard. so in the end they replaced the whole system.

CPU Question!

I am hopefully going to get my CPU replaced in about week or so, due to the fact that my CPU used to get very hot and with 1 year warrenty i should be able to replace it. the reason it over heated so much was due to the company that built it putting to much thermal paste on it and an incorrectly pla...

Re: Speaker compatability question

just as long as you have the green port on back of pc then your speakers will always work but as others have said yes the quailty may be poor due to the cheapness of the speakers. i have got some 2.1 shark speakers in my realtek hd audio 7.1 sound card and they work fine and quailty is very good. al...

Re: My graphics card driver

as FZ1 said yes you will need to uninstall or rollback the driver to the first one then reinstall the latest one, also back up your saved game data for wolfstein then reinstall the game and update that.

hope this helps!

Re: Anyone know of a good mouse?

not sure of the make but i reccomend a roller ball mouse. the ones with the big ball on top as they are best for those with limited space.
