This part of tune up will do that

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

Although you only moved from skipping sfc to running check disc, not moved on to run the repair, see how it goes

Im not understanding the optimizing portion, but the computer seems to be fine now.

Should I do anything else?

If the computer is running well then leaving it is as good as anything

Problem happened again. Freezes on windows loading screen.

The part where you tell me to optimize "Computer with Network"

There is no such option.

Run tune up disc clean up, registry clean up then reg defrag, we can look at the optimization after this

Have you installed / uninstalled anything recently

Not that I know of. Its my brother's pc. All he's been doing lately is playing GTA San Andreas.

Reason is we just got a Radeon x1600 Pro for his computer, but it shows fuzzy lines on the screen for some reason

don't suppose you know a resolution to this. Its like, a portion of the screen is distorted. Other people have this issue as well.

Did you download the drivers or install them from a software CD

If this is your first ATI card, have you installed .net framework 1.1 or 2.0 and have service pack 2

If you right click the desktop, click properties, settings, is it set for 32 bit true colour

If it is an LCD monitor, are you using the clear type tuner

Its an LCD Monitor, don't know if its clear type.

No, this is our 3rd Radeon Card. Yes a net framework is installed

Yes, A driver was installed for the corresponding Card.

Yes it is set to 32Bit True Colour.

Registry and Disk Cleaners completed.

Now what? (for both issues)


edit: Problem still persists

If you installed from the software CD then you could update them from the ATI site

Choose Radeon, download and save the file, also download and run cat uninstaller, run disc clean up and disc defragmenter then install the downloaded drivers

The problem is solved. It fixed itself after I used chkdsk /f /r


But, do you know how to fix the card problem?

Use the ATI site, download the Radeon 6.5, 2 of 3, 34.4 MB and 3 of 3 if it applies

Download and run cat uninstaller, reboot, install the 6.5 drivers
