I'll post it here because the most of the people visit this forum http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I tried to play a game and it said that I need a card with 3D acceleration, which I have. Then I tried a game that doesn't need 3D acc. and in options was only the software option. I didn't know what to do, so I reinstalled the drivers and it worked.
Does anybody know what was that, and hae I done a good thing ?
Also the main cooler is making some weird noises, can it make any harm?

I really don't know what to do... Thanks http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I'm going to sleep. Please don't give me an answer about a chevy/virus attacked nuke central. I came at Cuba, my PC made a trip of 10000km, and here the parts and techniciens are pretty hard to find, and they cost much. Come on, I know you know! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

guys... have you seen the water cooled CPU?? - it does exist - i saw it at the last few computer swap meets i went too... very cool looking... not too functional - but apartently great for overclocking...

Obelix: Fans often make noises due to bairings and dust. this is normal and shouldnt harm your PC too much... vacuming the inside of your computer will help alleviate this - http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/icons/icon14.gif

Voodoo PC has an awesome cooling system that they developed. It's not water but it is liquid. They are trying to get a patent on it I think. I'll see if I can dig up the article.

Thanks for the info. But I would never want to have the responsibility of releasing that Hobgoblin into the world.
