Do I absolutely have to subscribe to some company or buy some software that Ill only use this once because Ill be buying a new pc pretty soon or rather building a new one. Any help would be greatly appreciatedHere is the information I have on the system Im running and it has a 20 gig hd and a 512mb ram and cdr/dvd drive:Computer name: HOME Your Ticket #: 37JRJLK BIOS Type: Phoenix BIOS Date: August 12th 2000 BIOS ID: 31511.STD.0000.D.0008121626 BIOS OEM: Unknown Chipset: Intel Whitney 82810 rev 3 SuperIO: ITE 8702F rev 5 at port 002E Manufacturer: Trigem Computer, Inc.

There are a number of bios updates at driverguide.com, the most promising seems to be http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=61083 The same site is a good bet for finding the other drivers also. Registration is free, but they occasionally ask for money if you download too many drivers.

I have been going through hard drives 4 in the last 2 years and 2 in the last 3 months I was told that my mother board was losing power and causing the hard drives to fail

Hard drives demand a steady constant power flow, or their controller cards can get fried or there can be mechanical damage from power spikes. Heat is another killer of hard drives, they need air flow and open space around them to "bleed" off heat. I would probably upgrade my power supply to a more modern one with separate power rails and make sure the drive is secured in the middle area of its mounting cage and maybe install an auxiliary fan just for moving air over the drive.

845 GL video drivers

Sounds like you need to upgrade your drivers. The only ones that I found are: http://www.mercury-pc.com/product-detail.php?productid=51#

They seem to be a little dated and you may want to think about upgrading your board all together.

What games are you trying to play?
