Question about Computers & Internet

New Acer computer

Got the computer up and running. Put City of Heroes (mmorpg) on it, when loading displays color wonderfully! (I got giddy) but when selecting a toon (the screen is also offset, tried the screen setting it did nothing), and in game all the color is gone from almost everything (tools, chat window, nav window are all in color) and it has lines in it. Also, the mouse disappears when the game loads. Is this a set up problem on the computer itself or in game?

    Ok, I checked for recent drivers- downloaded and such, the color is back everything looks good. But my mouse is still gone, any suggestions?

Hey i guess the Video card drivers are uninstalled. My suggestion if you have not made any major changes post this accident do a system restore, alternativly you can allways uninstall video card and install it back.

heres how you do system restore.

Through the All Programs menu:
Click Start.
Point to All Programs.
Point to Accessories.
Point to System Tools.
Click System Restore.
Follow the instructions on the wizard.

For device manager

let me know if this dosent work.

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...

AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

In a certain game named Glory, its MMORPG for IpodTouch, i cannot create another account because we need few devices.But the problem, i didnt lnow what is a device, help me pls!!

in other words you would need a different ipod touch to create another account most mmorpg's only allow one account per computer or in your case ipod touch to help prevent players from running multiple accounts as multi's are against the terms of service of "Most" MMORPG's.

Im trying ti install heroes 4 and it say I need 128mb of memory... i have 2 gb of memory and says it fails to meet requirements...should i look for a patch? Im using windows 7. thx for ur help


Your using Windows OS 7, which is fairly new. This is great for programs but not for games. Heroes 4 is a older game, so there are some compadablility problems.

As for your memory and HD space you should be fine since the requirements are low.

Solutions: Look for programs which allows you to run virtual OS of pervious generations of windows (such as windows xp). This should solve your problem. Otherwise if you have 2 HDD on your laptop/computer you can make one drive into a older OS. Then run the game from that HD.

Good luck, and rate my response.

Monitor colors are not displaying correctly

Hi, At the worst it is a blown monitor, but have hope. 1st try a new or known good lead, between monitor and PC. 2nd put monitor with own lead on good PC. if 1st works = result. if 2nd and monitor is same, suspect monitor, however, if 2nd works ok on other PC, then look at ur vid card. Either way, this test sequence should save you some $. Be lucky.
