  1. got one from Adridge's. mods you can close this is you want. Many Thanks
  2. The card is about 10inches by 4, and no It doesn't need to be a new bag.
  3. Guys I'm having to send my gpu back, i have to use an anti static bag. Prices are pretty cheap but I don't need a large number, does anyone know if I can buy single bags anywhere on island ( big enough for a gtx570 card ). Cheers Kym
  4. haha don't play coy Bees, we all know you have a dozen lvl 80 toons in WoW all fully kitted out the top tier armour! hehehehe
  5. OK crisis averted, reinstalled my motherboard drivers, then swept my graphics card again, then installed some older drivers, also turned off the motherboards sound card. All seems to be working now, can't play skyrim without a sound card but played an hour of bf3 with no problems or issues. Thanks everyone for all the help and advice.
  6. I might hold you to that MP...i'm really hoping it is something as simple as the intergrated sound-card!
  7. that's what I must have done, I'm running them full screen. reading more and more forums the problem could well be on my mother-boards soundcard, so i'll try everything i've found tonite and will report back.. thanks again, great to know there's a good friendly community of PC users!
  8. I must have saved the memtest incorrectly onto the disc, as the computer isn't booting it at all... my PSU is 850W so there should be plenty of power. what would you recommend to monitor the card temps ( i know at BIOS the temp was 24degrees ). sorry for all the posts, and I really do thank you all for all your advice!

  10. I had the computer on last night running a malware check and driver sweep no issues. it does seem to only happen with BF3 / Skyrim...
  11. OK so an update... I ran a malware check, came up clean,reebooted, swept the Nvidia card, rebooted, installed new drivers, rebooted, checked sound, rebooted. couldn't figure out memtest for the life of me, got it burnt onto a CD but it won't run?? anyways apart from memtest everything done, booted up BF3 ( rather than Skyrim ) and managed 3mins of gameplay before the game crashed to the desktop...which is a slight improvement as it's usually been crashing to a black screen. if anyone can help me to figure out memtest and what I'm doing wrong i'll test the ram tonite, also what temp monitoring programmes would you recommend so i can check all this information out. More frustrating than anything else, and from looking at the nvidia forums this problem isn't isolated to me ( which makes me feel a litte better ). Thanks for all the help ( in advance ).
  12. on checking the Nvidia Forums, there seems to quite a bit of this happening. I've noticed that they've released new drivers today, so i'll give them a whirl once i've done everything suggested here!
  13. hmmmm that's interesting, as this problem did only start after the machine had been in hibernation overnight! I'll check some other forums and will try that as well! Just for information here is the full spec of the computer...

  14. i'm currently having some "issues" with my machine, if I can get them fixed up in the next couple of days i'll be there, but i'll keep you guys posted!
  15. thanks for the responses, i'll give all those options a look at tonite and will report back. it shouldn't be a heat issue as I had the machine built by the guys at cyber-power, but I will give eveything a good clean and double check everything is plugged in properly. I did leave the machine on over night on Saturday, but it went into hibernation so surely it couldn't be that?!?! thanks again
  16. Hey peeps, after a couple of trouble free months with the new computer, it's now decided to start crashing. Basically it crashes, speakers buzzz, screen stops or go black and can't ctrl-alt-delete so i have to power it off ( which i'm not keen on doing ). It started happening on Sunday ( when playing skyrim ), however it's now happening at random points even when i'm not gaming. Here are the pc specs : i5 quadcore processor, on a gigabyte GA-Z68P motherboard, with 8gig of DDR3 ram & a nvidia geforce GTX570 I've downloaded the drivers for the card again, and i've also restored the computer back a few days but the problem is still there. I'm not overly worried but i'm not really that clued up on PC's so just wanted to get some help and advice from you guys. Hopefully there's enough information there, but if you need anything else then just let me know. Thanks in advance Kym
  17. a slow burner definately, but still brilliant!
  18. Yeah i've been reading the GN for a few years now as well...I agree with everything you say MDO but i've got to admit i've fookin' loving the show! I just hope they do a certain character justice when and if she appears!
  19. I'm thinking of setting up a platoon, would there be much interest? i've just purchased a teamspeak server ( 50% ) and figured it would be a good way to get a few manxies squaded up and have a bit of a laugh! had a look at actual game server costs, but how ( if even ) do you recoup money on them ( £540 for a 64player server for a year! )? edited to add : Manannan's Ravens is now up. I've sent out invites to people on my friend list but if you want to join up drop us a message!
  20. you know what mish, this is what i was saying to the missus this morning. I get the general feeling that no-one knew who was on the ship, where there were staying, who was in charge or anything, what they should have done in the case of an emergency...crazy
  21. how do they go about moving the vessel from it's current location...the thing is gigantic!
  22. OK I'm going to have to pass on this months event i'm afraid, the missus is out that night and i'm looking after the boy...next month for definate though!
  23. ahhh right...damn i thought i could have walked to the LAN! hehehe I'll get some of the games needed downloaded over the next couple of days, be good to meet up with you all!
  24. is the santon church hall just before the lancashire pub? Opposite Newtown?
  25. Just wondering if anyone is waiting for Planetside2 to come out? I missed the original but from the looks of things this looks like it could be pretty interesting, I think they're going with a F2P model...but I like the idea of 1000's of people on the same server all battling for control. http://www.planetside2.com/ they're taking on beta signups now as well...
