    Default Broken Computer

    Well guys...not sure what happened...
    Sunday afternoon I went to boot up my computer to fly with you guys, and i had lost all my sound devices. I'm not sure whats going on. My computer started running realy slow and I'm getting lockups all the time now. It also will not let me uninstall anything...im getting error left and right....
    I'm in the process of doing a complete reinstall of windows XP..(its needed this for quite sometime now anyways). I'm also thinking about getting a new motherboard and processor. The old amd 3000 is getting tired. Might grab some more Ram also...running 2 gigs now.. I will keep you guys posted on the process..hopefull i will be up and flying soon... : S!

    Talk to the people at Tiger Direct, they have been very helpful to me in the past and not real pushy when it comes to selling. http://www.tigerdirect.com/

    I think that is were Tiger Direct can help. Things need to be compatible and if you tell them what you have they can suggest some components that might work with what you all ready have.
