My computer has just been pew pewed by the Blue Screen D: The graphics are totally ruined and I have no idea when it's all back up and running. Wish me good luck :< And if you have any tips, do share!

I thought I'd share a little of my misery with you. This is what my desktop looks like at the moment... x3



Has anyone encountered this before? Razz

Aye,it seems to be an error with your Grapixx card.Try cleaning out the computer,especially around the ports.If that doesn't work try a new card (I suggest "borrowing" one from another computer just to see if it works)

You're right, Sorrow, the graphic card is the problem. We had a friend of the family look at it and it's broken. But to repair it I need a new motherboard (the motherboard and the graphic card is apparently intergrated e_O) and those are PRICY. I don't think it's worth to repair it, so I will be buying a new computer - stationary this time, woo! But I will be totally broke - been saving up money for new furniture etc. but guess that will have to wait. Damn it xD

From the sounds of it you need a new system. If the graphics card and motherboard are intergrated then ou were using 'On-board' graphics which is rather impressive if it was capable running WoW.

I suggest next time when you get a computer, try getting one with a slot on the motherboard for a PCI-E graphics card, which can be replaced easily if broken.

Don't throw away our old system, if your old motherboard has an AGP or PCI-E slot for a graphics card on there you might still be able to get away with not buying a new system, but installing a new graphics card and running the monitor from that. Running an installed graphics card is usually the better choice for gamers, as not only are they easily replaced they also usually offer higher none-shared graphics memory than the on-board alternatives, which improves the visuals on a game and the performance of movies.

Thank you for the help and info, but as I said, we've had someone look at it and his suggestion is to buy a new one and that's what I intend to do. Plus I didn't understand half of that. x3

"Why buy furniture when you can buy graphics cards?" I'm sorry, it just made me laugh...

Meh. We're missing you in the guild, 'bekka. Geriand's taking control, Vrae's being a complete bitch and Kelmith looks goofy. I hope you'll join the madness soon enough.

Yes, I hope I can re-join you before this thing is over! I've been keeping an eye at my calendar through the armory, and it looks like I better hurry before the grand finale.

I have no idea what was in that folder, but it sure as hell wasn't picture of clothes (probably Sims Downloads xP). Hey, I'm a girl - but I'm not that weird!
