  1. First, my sound does not work. I have Realtek high definition Audio, but there if a ATI HDMI audio also. The problem i'm having is that it does not seem to recognize the Realtek audio, which is the one i want. When i got to my volume control. it tells me that there is to mixer installed. and when i go to the Realtek audio properties there is nothing is says: Driver provider: Unknown, Driver date Not available, Driver Version: not available, Driver Signer: not digitally signed. There is also a Gigabyte tech. sound manager. sound does play when i test it though that. My bro looked at it and he got stumped only thing he could think of is to try and update everything as much as i can. I will be doing that once i am done here. I need some help here, im trying to play Doom 3 and it is not scary with out sound. I need sound.
  2. My question is can a Laptop screen be used as a desktop monitor? I've searched around and found that it could be done but there you would have to take the laptap apart and solder the wires. Heres the site that talks about it. They go into detail about if there compatible http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/98801 What do you guys think about this?
  3. Now that i have bought a DVI cable i can connect my PC to my TV. Heres the problem i cannot get the right screen resolution with it. Down below is a pic of what i mean. I have a 53inch projection tv with a DVI input. My PC has a HDMI ouput that came with a HDMI to DVI adaptor. I have tried all the settings on the ATI catalyst control center(if you know what i mean). This is the best ive got it but it still cuts a lot of. I dont know if this matters but i bought a 18 pin DVI cable, There was a 24 pin cable, but that was more expensive. What are your thought abouts this?
  4. I think ill try something like that. I got nothing to loose right now. One thing about linux is that you can run it on the cd and you dont have to install anything.
  5. hey ningageek how do you get the front screen and knob to work? and there is a input and output power connectors, what do they do? I thought about dling kubuntu but i decided that i want windows becuase more things are compatible with it. I also thought of doing a dual boot with those two, but i figure im only going to use windows anyway.
  6. Hey guys, I got all my stuff on thursday. I got it all put together and working, it was so easy. The only hard part was figuring out where to plug everything in at.I still need a OS, but i have wait a week for my brother to get back from vacation so i can use one of his. Im thinking about taking a hard drive out of a different computer and sticking that one in there to make sure everything works smoothly. Heres some pics of it.
  7. Hey buntz i've tried thats site and when i click the memory support list, the page wont load. Ill see how the 80mm fan works if i think it is getting to hot ill put in a bigger one.
  8. Ok I think this is my final list, hopefully. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813128052 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819103751 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16820211066 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16822148140 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16827151141 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16811144102 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16817148027 All for $500, Its a little more than i thought but i think its worth it. I ended up going to 2-1GB of memory, it was less expensive to buy 2 than just 1. Can someone make sure that the memory will work with the MB. I couldn't find a memory compatibility sheet for it. My brother has a copy with windows XP that should work.
  9. What kind of power supply do i need?
  10. What about this processor? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103751
  11. I was looking around at the AMD mother boards and i found this one. This one has an hdmi adaptor which is really nice. Is there a way to go from hdmi to componet. This board come with hdmi to DVI cable. What resolution can a DVI cable get? http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813128052
  12. Buntz thx for the site. I dont think any of my stuff is compatible.
  13. You guys have no chance against me. You might as well give up now.
  14. Thats makes me feel much better. Do i need the video card right away or can i just wait on that? And one more thing should i run vista? or can i ran vista?
  15. I was reading through the forums and i saw that a lot of you guys build your own computers and an i idea popped into my head and i thought I could build one too. so i searched around and found these, which i thought would make a pretty good computer. I just need your guys help with it. heres what i found so far: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16811144102 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16820146580 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16822144423 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813186109 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819115014 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827248006 what do you guys think. all for only $430. I got to make sure it will all work together. And that i have everything to make it run. I dont know much, but i believe i can do it. The only thing im worried about is the software. Will all of it just work right away or will i have to install this stuff. My brother know more about computers so im sure he'll be helping me. I plan to upgrade even more in the future, like getting a good video card. I really want to be able to run it though my tv (hopefully in HD). I could use any advice you guys have.

    VLC media player will play .bin files and pretty much anything
  17. Its kinda weird some of the songs i got from a CD and some i downloaded. If i get itunes will i be able to import those songs onto it and then convert them. or im i just stuck with it.
  18. hey guys, I've been having some trouble in converting wma files into mp3. Every program i try can't do it. It seem like the wma files are protected in some way. I want all my songs in mp3 because thats what all my players use such as my car cd player and my PS3. What can i do about this? what program will convert them?
  19. Its all about your own opinion. I personally like windows because that what ive always used, and I always had trouble with mac becuase i couldnt do anything with it. but if you know how to use macs then use it. I dont even know where i could get a mac, i never see them in stores. Plus i like how you can upgrade pc more easily.

    cd-rom dont work

    My cd-rom doesnt seem to work. It does not reconize any cd that i put in it. I can here the cd spin right away put then it does nothing. I think it might have something to do with when i drop my laptop. Earlier my laptop fell off my bed. right onto the side with the cd-rom. anyone know what happened?
  22. Man, i wish i had a computer like that. geez, those speeds are unbeleivable 128mb ram, what would you ever do with that much. now a days nothing could work with that computer. I liked quake 2.
  23. I just watched it and i thought it was pretty good. Yeah, there is a lot of slow parts, but i think that make you need some of that because what would spiderman be fighting for? There would be no spiderman movie with out MJ. The ending was pretty good, a lot of action. Cant wait for spiderman 4, 5, and 6.
  24. i just saw a 160 gb harddrive in the staples ad for $40
  25. I think that there is just to many variables and im pretty sure its illegal to do it. I'll wait a while and see if i like vista on this desktop first. than i might go the legal way and buy a version of vista later on. My laptop only has 512 mb ram so im pretty sure vista would just slow it way down. Im not a kind of guy that likes to wait more than a few seconds for something to load. I just wanted to know if it would be simple but i dont think it will be. This is my parents new desktop that they bought for $400. its a really nice pc, 120gb. 512mb ram, dvd/cd/lightscride burner, 17inch flat screen. compaq presario. I think its a really good buy.
