I could run all programs without a problem EXCEPT games... anytime I tried to run a game I would get a blue screen that would detail about one of the following files:
So I thought I might have screwed up the drivers or I might have a virus and just decided to do a full reformat to start with a clean slate. Well not only are the problems not gone, they're worse! Here's what happens:
When it gets to the Windows XP Pro loading screen everything seems fine... then right when it's done loading when it tries to load the desktop it pauses for a second or so and then restarts. Sometimes I can see some random colored blocks on the screen before it restarts.
So obviously since a full reformatt didn't get rid of it it must be a hardware problem right? I'm leaning towards the video card being the problem, but could this be a hard drive problem? Or a motherboard problem even? I cleaned off the video card and did everything I could, the fan is working fine and I can load the comp in safe mode. All plugs are securely plugged in.
My specs are:
OS: Windows XP Pro
Processor: 3.04 ghz pentium 4
Ram: 1 GB of RD 1066 ram
HD: IDE 140 GB Hard drive
Video card: Radeon 9700 pro
Sound card: Sound Blaster Audigy
Someone please help me thanks!
