This demo fucked up my PC too I downloaded it last night then woke up this morning and installed it. Everything was going fine in the intro when I was swimming up to that little island. Then I went in everything was still cool, I hopped into the elevator thing and went through all that shit. After that another loading screen popped up and when I came back to my computer the whole screen was black. I exited out luckily and then tried to play some Counter Strike and my screen say "No Signal" then goes back to windows.
I checked my drivers and it turns out I still have my old drivers or at least I think I do. It's something like 91.47 forceware or some shit like that. Maybe it also updated DX and that fucked everything up....... WTF should I do?
Also my computer froze when my screen saver came on. I just have a black screen for my screen saver and it wouldn't go back to windows :?
Edit: Alright Counter strike is working now but I'm not trying that demo again.
The penultimate update here guys. I picked up a new PSU this afternoon, installed it, and.......
So, now I have to decide whether to spend too much money buying an obsolete old Socket A board (do they even sell those anymore?) and see if my processor, RAM and vid card are salvageable. Or I could spend even more money I don't have and get a whole new system.
In the meantime, this old Pentium 3 plays a mean game of Starcraft, so I think I'll spend some time getting my ass kicked by Koreans to prepare for 2. They shall taste the wrath of my Intel 810 IGP *weeps softly*
