  1. In anycase who needs free proxy now when we have filmon?! http://www.filmon.com. Ok I don't get everything but better than nothing. Usually I just think why on earth dont you lot all complain?! there is rarely anything worth watching! House selling/renovation,relocation, antiques, quiz shows galore, little of substance, however I accept too that with 2 hours time difference I am ready for bed by the time the better stuff comes on!
  2. No, replaced fan and damaged parts,
  3. Yep, cricket is a very important game here we have some good teams, and there is always a friendly when the Navy is in town. Greek hospitality is renowned, its a great and very friendly place to live... and visit!
  4. Just in case its useful for anyone else, it seems have been the fan on the psu not working, which had damaged some other bits in the psu with overheating. PC seems to be operating very smoothly now AND my text issue with the graphics card new driver is resolved, someone had suggested to check all connections so seems like dodgy power supply was the problem with that too. Sorted. Thanks for input guys and look how cool graphics card is now after hour of running, Operating System MS Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3 CPU Intel Pentium E2200 @ 2.20GHz 46 °C Conroe 65nm Technology RAM 2.00
  5. I am in Acharavi , Travel with Friends Corfu; thats me! north coast. Very nice! Thanks thats in line with my thoughts. I will double check fans but am pretty sure all ok. Interestingly you will see a thread back the winter where I was asking about partitioning my hard drive, or not, as I was ready to reinstall on both my pcs. I did one (no partition) and got lazy about the other. looks like this may be pay back! Will a resintall clear a hardware conflict?
  6. after a couple of hours the cpu and mother board go to about 55/57 and graphics card to 86/87.. I havent seen it higher than that but whens its frozen i cant get back to speccy page to check! No I updated the drivers after, and after it had been cleaned out which we thought would clear the problem... which it did for just a day. I am a read the manual after I have broken things person, and didnt see that forum, and didnt worry about the updated driver as i was sure i would be able to roll it back... but i couldn't , it said it had not got any stored drivers! Everything is functioning fine

  9. Ugh! Thats one of those videos you wish you didnt have to watch! Glad for the heads up though didnt know we have it here and we have A LOT of ticks in spring.
  10. on office PC now so will do summary later, but can say I had to get a friend who knows (not here now) to do the cleaning so know the fan is functioning and is clean. Was told taking the sides off and using pc was not good as the fans create a through draft which works better with sides on? I have never tried taking things apart inside the pc.. so bit nervous of doing so without knowing whats what!! Actually its only about 28c today. Pc sits under my desk, same place it has for last 3 years without problem, its been a LOT hotter than it is now, so it seems to me its something that has h
  11. Desk top. All cleaned out. It was then good for a day and half then next morning started again. Was getting really worried I had a real problem as I couldn't post! I've not got many posts but I have got more than 15! I eat the fish that my brother catches (Dan) so I'm kinda peripheral to all the activity! But you have all been very helpful on techie stuff for me; I do have a knowledge problem (lack of!) here in Corfu! Reading some forum stuff some people's graphics cards seem to go over 100c which makes mine look tame! Question is, after cleaning whats the next step? This was
  12. Here am I again, I am beginning to develop a real love hate relationship with my electronic friend, rather more than hate than love right now! A couple of months ago PC started randomly freezing. I would power down then restart; all ok again for weeks, then bang again...a quick Google makes it look like a hardware conflict though i cannot think what I havent got anything new. Device manager doesnt show any conflict says everything working ok. Eventually I arrived at the point where it would barely stay booted for more than a few mins, advice was maybe overheating ( it is hot here and fa
  13. Ummm how did you do that then?!
  14. Yes i know. I have a rather addictive personality and my favourite word is WHY. My computer Guru, a man rather like you I guess, who just understands what the PC is telling him, hates me as soon as he sees that word coming! Once I start messing around on here hours go by and other jobs which should have been done stay undone. I know lots of people hate Norton. It works for me, its much lighter than it used to be. The utilities, I have only just started using, hasnt slowed anything down and if it helps keep everything oiled and working thats fine by me, cos when it comes to registry etc etc
  15. Oh dear this is about the point I lose the will to live. I buy what is uptodate at the time, by the time I learn to use it, get used to it ,its already outr of date! I do know about the solid state drive ; I definitely don't have one. The last Seagate external hard dive I had probably died of fright because, out of ignorance, I was using it like a flash drive; taking it home to office and back ( not telling why in case Greek tax man is watching this thread!) suffice to say they don't like to move about much. My Trekstore is left standing and moved very gently when needs be... lesson learned
