Last night I think I killed my video card
I'll make a post over at SF when I come home from school, but it don't look good atm.
Anyways, today is gunna be boring, double science, so yeah lol.
Daniel, Rich congrats on your post count.
Daniel, it will go fast. Soon you will be thinking about that 1500 mark
Rich, what can I say, you doubled that mark already, double gold.
Lol, ty richc46
And Niemiro, not sure, I changed the resolution in a game to one higher than my actual screen res, and restarted the game, and bam, dodgy colours.
It could be a number of things, the fan on the card could have got stuck and overheated as I was changing some cable management in the case earlier, maybe it came loose from the PCI slot since I run it without a bracket as it's a small form-factor that didn't come with a full hight PCI bracket.
I'm gunna take it apart in a while and see what is happening.
I booted to XP and everything looked fine, so maybe it's broke the driver or something, I don't even know if that's possible lmao
I haven't turned the PC on since, and if the graphics card is dead, I haven't got a spare, so yeah, and my screen is DVI and my card on-board is VGA.
As a replacement though, I'd happily accept an Asus Ares or an Asus Mars II
Also, have just about given up with my school, they are actually useless. No wonder since the school is closing though.
Y'no when you feel really, really stupid?
Video card is fixed, colour setting was set for 8bit instead of 32bit. Lmao

Glad you got it sorted
Monday is when I start my Work experience - Hopefully It should be easy as I have to manage Printers and update servers etc

Edit: 1600th Post
Good Luck Josh.
Its not really needed, you will do great.
They said if I do well I may have a part time Job there
The first job will remain with you forever. When I was just a year or so older than you, my first and best job was given to me. I was a Vendor at Yankee Stadium, a real pleasure. I met Mickey Mantle, Maris, Berra, and Football Joe Namath.
WOW Though If I did get this Job I wouldn't see any people like them
