  1. Just a quick update . Based on my inability to replace my PSU and budgetary concerns , I pulled the trigger on a eVGA GeForce FX 5500 256 MB card. Not a great card by any means , but better than what I have now and hopefully better than the GeForce4 Ti 4600 I had which apparently died.
  2. Same exact model as mine The RAM makes me wonder though. This PC, according to my documentation, was only upgradable to 512 RAM?
  3. Thank CR6 I appreciate your taking the time to check this problem out for me Only question I have now that I can't find an answer to is what my PSU is rated at? It doesn't say in the reference manual I DL'ed from the Sony website. I'm a little concerned that this old girl might not have enough juice to handle the new card. P.S. I think I just found it . Factory PSU is rated at 268.9W. I'll dig around some more.
  4. Sony Vaio - about 6 years old WindowsXP Home Edition P4 1.8 ghz 512 ram 60g HD Asus P4B-LX motherboard - AGP 2.0 slot @ 4X - Intel 845 chipset Budget is not great at the moment , say under $100.00 The new rig is a long ways off for the forseeable future GR is really the only game I play because of the specs above
  5. Found this in the error log "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: nvport " Does this mean what I think it means , that I have a driver problem and not a card problem?
  6. Possible card? Possible card 2? Tell me your opinions please. Haven't had to buy a card in a long time obviously
  7. Thanks gents Probably have to get a new card when I can afford it. (And a whole new rig for that matter)
  8. Came into my room last night to find my screen black , light was amber , pc was still on. I could not get the screen to come on so I had to hit the power button to shut down. Today I fired up the pc but the screen still didn't come on . Popped the side cover to find all fans going like a bat out of hell , but I could not get anything to respond. Popped in the card that came with the pc orignally and everything works fine. No problems with the "bad" card until last night. GeForce4 Ti 4600 has been in my pc almost 5 years. Any way to check it out , or am I doomed

  10. That's a bit of an oversimplifacation. More like highly motivated , very smart , and to be frank , not have any problem killing other human beings from 600 yards to 6 inches away.
  11. In the book I have , Delta goes to the central Army records facility , in Missouri I think , and they go through Ranger and SF personal files to find acceptable cadidates. Once that happens , the prospects are sent letters notifying them that Delta is interested in them . Then they head off to selection and assesment which is basically a screening process to weed out those who aren't quite up to the "challenge" if you will. They are sent off to a remote training facility in West Virginia for S&A. One senario is , you are told to be up and ready to go at 0700 hours. No reviele is sounded, no one wakes you up. You are given a color and number instead one's name and rank and told to hike to a certain map coordinate. The candidate ask's "what's the time limit" , they are told "do the best you can". They are timed you see, but no one is told what that time is. Those that wash out are sent back to their parent company. Get through S&A and you are on your way to actual Delta training. I may have glossed over some of the finer details, but you get the idea. The book is "The Commandos - The Inside Story of America's Secret Soldiers" by Douglas C. Waller. This is only one source , obviously , so a grain of salt with all this
  12. I think that about covers it. Check your PM.
  13. I've had the 93.71 drivers since they out. I'm pretty anal when it comes to making sure this old girl is as up to date as possible. When I turn all shadowing off, problem goes bye-bye. Never had this happen before so I honestly don't know what the deal is. I'd say my card is the problem, but I don't have this problem with anything else. I'd like to thank everyone for there input and time on this situation. It could be my card is starting to go.

Really frustrating because I had completed all objectives- mission ended- screen went black- but instead of the next screen being the stat screen I got my desktop.
