There you will find your drivers. I apologize for the inconveniencing that his website causes. There are still quite a few problems I have noticed. I am sure they are working to improve it(or at least I would hope). They are coming out with new features all the time. You might want to give them some feedback so they know how customers are feeling.
Thanks again and I hope this solves your problem,
Lee

When playing online games, my computer runs really slow, and at least once a week i get a pop-up stating that the virtual memory is low - how do I fix it?


The easiest way is to add more RAM memory. More RAM = faster computer.

Go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER option.

This will tell you excatly how much RAM you currently have installed in your system as well as how much room you have to add more if you want. It will tell you all the specs you will need to buy new RAM memory sticks and easily upgrade your computer's performance.

Good luck and please post back if this was helpful or if you need further assistance.

Have you opened the computer up and checked the fans for dust. As you say, those are clasic overheating symptoms
Use a small brush and a vaccum cleaner, or a can of compressed air(air duster) to clean your pc's fans.

When i play online games why is it so slow


You are right when you say it's really slow when you play games online, 1. The Game server is accessing by you through wires and network devices, so this makes the games slow. If the game is installed in your pc, there's should be no speed problem, 2. Network bandwidth will be accumulated by the game when you run the program, so don't take tension,... we are facing the same problem and it's just normal. There's nothing different. Good luck

Hopefully you kept copies of the rebate and receipt in case you have to prove it. I would contact the folks where I sent the rebate to. If you get no resolution this way, see if Circuit City would take care of you. I had this happen with a store online, and they gave me part of my rebate back and store credit and it wasn't even their screw up, and this was a year later. I would also Google and see if anyone else has had this issue on this deal.

My computer keeps turning off..


1) what is the wattage of your power supply, it could be that it is not enough for when your system is running under a heavy load. Or it could just be failing fast.
2) check fans and temperature, systems will shut down to protect themselves if it gets too hot.
3) look at the mother board, are any of the capacitors leaking or bulging, if so you mother needs replacing unless you are comfortable replacing capacitors.
