|after getting a new graphic card from me (BFG |
Geforce 9500GT) my brother's computer's
been acting wierdly...
He got it as a gift from me as i am moving onto
another better graphic card. I was, prior to this,
running this Geforce 9500GT on a HP pavilion
a6000n, and everything was fine.
After i gave it to him and had it installed on HP
pavilion p6130y, the computer, first, couldn't
play warcraft (which should be completely able
to play it on a AMD quad core system.) It said
that "directX 8.1 or higher is needed." my
brother definitely have directX 10, but for some
reason, it can't play warcraft.
I figured that it is because i installed the vista
driver from the CD onto his windows 7 OS.
later, i installed the driver all over again (after
removing his "vista" driver) by downloading the
windows 7 driver from the nvidia website.
After that, warcraft worked, but for some
reason 1. the computer crashes after rebooting
from installing newer updates from microsoft
regarding this driver (along with some other
stuff) and 2. after playing warcraft for a bit, the
computer froze, (like completely, he had to
turn it off manually.) and also 3. when
watching this video after rebooting from the
freezing, the screen lagged, and the pixels
appeared from the screen and, freezes.
i seriously don't know what to do. This graphic
card worked perfectly on my computer, but it
won't work on his computer. any ideas?
