  1. After I play a game on my computer, videos will stop working, but only the sound will work. before I play a game they work fine, but after I play the screen is just black with the sound working... It works after I logoff and log in again, but they dont work after I play a game. What could it be?

  4. alright i kind of solved that problem by not plugging in the hard drive and then booting the windows cd, and then i plugged it in and loaded the file sonto the hard drive, but now i got another problem...

It saved a whole bunch of files from the disk(windows) and then asked me to restart. Ok so I did that , and windows begins to install, I notice that its stuck on 39 minutes for about 15 minutes and the computer seemed to be frozen, so i hit the reset button and try again. I hit boot from cd, but now i get an error everytime i do it. even if i load the driver cd for my motherboard, it says restarting insta
