    To remove really nasty trojans you can try combofix. It has helped me clean up computers in the past. Not for the faint of heart however, it can hose things up pretty good if you don't follow the...

    The 5.1 sub should work with it, I'd think. The only thing I think might be a problem is the control pod. (Unless your buddy is including that in the deal...) Then you'll be making a step up by...

    I'd say that if the card is running stable with the current BIOS, you might as well leave it as is.

    I have two eVGA 8800GTs that I have flashed with the 9800GTSC BIOS which bumps the clock up a...
  10. Re: So I installed ubuntu10.4 last night...now I have a HD?

    The reason for the price increase is that the fabs are cutting back on manufacturing the DDR2 and ramping up production on DDR3. The supply of DDR2 is dwindling forcing the price up. There is still...

    The 8800GT and the 9800GT are the same cards. They have only been re-badged. (I even flashed my 8800GT with the 9800GT BIOS just so they would read the same for SLI on my machine...) Exactly the...

    Is the drive formatted as FAT, FAT32, NTFS, or other?

    If FAT, there is a file size limitation I believe. Is it a single 1.5GB file you are trying to copy? If so, that is possibly the problem. ...
