I bought some new hardware for my pc but for some reason it went wrong, i got a new graphics card for my pc, when i installed it it slowed down the whole machine and when i tryed to do anything that used a lot of resources the screen would blind on and off repeatedly.

Drivers Keep Going Wrong

My mate's computer keeps going wrong. Slowly his peripherals are all stopping working with his computer failing to recognise them, regardless of various driver reinstallations. First it was his sound card, so i suggested a system restore. It was then fine. Then the next day his printer had done the same thing.system restore again. Didn't work this time. The the webcam, and then his graphic tablet, then his mobile (usb connected).system restore and safe-mode-resinstallations of the drivers don't work. Are his drivers somehow becoming corrupt oine after another? The sound still works. We have tried attaching the peripherals in other computers and they work fine.

What's Wrong With My Wireless Connection?

A couple days ago i started not being able to connect to the internet via wireless. However, my connection with my ethernet cable is just fine. I was thinking the problem was with my router, but my roommate is able to connect via wireless without issue. I then thought it was my wireless adapter (even though device manager doesn't show any problems), but i was able to connect to my university's wireless without any problem this morning. What could be wrong?

What's Wrong With My Internet?

I have a hp g60-230us model laptop. I've had it for about a year. Now my mom bought me and my cousin the same computer from office depot. They only had one new computer, the second computer was the "display" they show for everyone to see. My mom decided to buy the display as well. So i got the display one. My computer was running fine. But lately one, my charger stopped working, like when i hooked it up my laptop wouldn't charge. Two weeks later i come home and i try to get on the computer and everytime i try to get on the internet it tries to load but freezes with the white screen and then say "not responding" and i would always have to cancel by pressing ctrl+atl+delete. The only way i can get on the internet is by using my "safe mode while networking" and then i can get on the internet but you know with safe mode its so big and you can only use so many options like their is no audio and watch videos and etc. So i don't think i should always be using safe mode. I want to use my internet "normally" but everytime like i said it freezes and says "not responding". What happened? Do any of you guys know? Should i get an actual new laptop i have warranty but will they give me a new one? Should i take it back to office depot? Let me remind you it was working fine for a while. So what should i do? I want a actual laptop that works so i can use internet.

What Is Wrong With Macbook Pro Screen?

Lately i noticed my macbook pro lcd screen was flickering, at first it would only flicker at low brightness level and then it got progressively worse and would figure intermittently at any brightness level. Then i turned on my macbook pro and it booted to a black screen. I tried plugging the macbook pro into an external display and that worked! Yet my macbook pro screen was still black.

Then a few days ago as i plugged in the external display as my black screen mbp booted up it miraculously came on so it seems the mini-display port to hdmi connection wakes up the macbook pro screen. Sometimes the screen would actually go through a normal boot up and work fine and other times it would boot up to a black screen. I have noticed though since the black screen issue it the backlight no longer flickers. I ran an apple hardware test and nothing came up in the results.

What's Wrong With My Apple Mac?

The other day i dropped my computer about four feet onto hardwood floor, and ever since then it hasn't been working. When i turn the computer on i can hear it boot up normally, and i can even hear skype start up as well as people messaging me, etc. However, the entire screen is black and i can't see anything no matter what i do. Also, when i close the laptop without powering it off, it doesn't go into 'sleep' mode like it normally would and instead everything continues to run (i can hear people skyping me, etc. )

I took it to the apple store and because there's external damage they're not honoring the warranty anymore and won't really give me an idea of what is specifically wrong with the computer. I was wondering if anyone can give me a better idea of what's up and what i should do? I'm a college student and have limited funds. Note: i'm aware that the fact that i dropped it is what's "wrong" with my computer, but i'm looking for a more specific answer.

What's Wrong With My Cd Rom - Dvd Drives?

Both my dvd-rom & cd-rom drives will not play commercial cd's or cd-rom's anymore. They play previously recorded cd-r's fine and record on them if something is already recorded. If i try a new blank cd-r it won't record. Dvd's play fine in the dvd-rom drive. What i already did:

-I went into "my computer" to double click both these drives manually
And get messages telling me "to insert disc in device" while the discs
Are in there. -I went into "file->properties->autoplay" of both these devices
To make sure they were set on "autoplay". -I disabled in control panel->system->hardware->device manager my cd-
Rom drive and restarted windows, re enabled the cd-rom drive to no
Avail. Do you guys think dust might be an issue? Shall i disconnect my pc, get a can of air, and clean it up ?

Windows Shows Wrong Encryption For Networks

So about 3 months ago i switched to a new modem, it is a dlink dsl-2740b. I easily set my lan up and had fast internet, but ever since i haven't been able to connect to the wifi option of my network. I know the encryption method (wpa-tkip) and the key. (I'm absolutely 100% sure of this). Still, windows says the network is wep encrypted, and it always says my key is wrong. When i configure the network manually it gives me a red cross where the connection strength meter should be and it says "the settings saved on the computer do not match the network's requirements"

I think the problem might be in the fact that the 2 modems have the exact same network name, but still i don't get why windows says it's wep. Sometimes it even asks me to enter a username and password, but i was never asked to enter one on the setup.

Plugged Mouse In Wrong Slot, Now Keyboard Doesn't Work

I recently built a new computer and got a new keyboard, ms natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 (usb). I installed everything and the keyboard was working fine for a couple of weeks. I was using my mouse on my old computer then when hooking it back to my new computer accidently plugged it into the ps2 keyboard slot instead of the mouse. When i turned on the computer neither was working, so i then noticed the problem. Tried to switch them and now i can't get my keyboard to work again. I have tryed uninstalling, rebooting, reinstalling the keyboard for a few hours. Trying everything i can think of. If i plug my old keyboard into the ps2 keyboard slot and boot up it works, but can't get the new one to work through usb. I've tryed different usb slots. I'm out of ideas. Does anyone know anything that i could try?

Update Drivers Or Not

I wanted to know if you guys put the new drivers in the computer when the old drivers are still doing the job? Why also companies like asus throw out so much drivers update when the older one are doing the job? I seen that my old bios, old drivers that came with the installation cd for the motherboard all do the job well.

Driver Update Question On New Card

Finally upgrading my 7800gtx i bought when it was brand new. Getting a pny gts 250 today from newegg. This is what i was going to do. Uninstall the current nvidia drivers, turn the machine off take the old card out. Install the new card install the new drivers. Would this beneficial or does it really matter? Should i just turn the machine off then install the new drivers instead?

Since this is a different generation card i figured i should do this.

I currently have the catalyst 9. 9 drivers installed and running on windows 7 ultimate x64. However, i keep seeing drivers on windows update with a date of 9/30/2009. Are these some kind of incremental update after 9. 9? The dates are later, but i see no mention of them on ati's site. Has anyone installed these after 9. 9?
