My computer has been acting really funny lately. For a couple of days I could not get my computer to turn on at all, but today I was able to somehow. Also, I recently got World of Warcraft and was playing it, but the VPU recovery for my graphics card kept resetting the settings because it had stopped responding to command drivers. It did this at least twice everytime I played WoW until it I couldn't log on anymore. The computer would go on a standby type of mode and I would move the mouse or push a button and it wouldn't do anything. I have reinstalled the software for my graphics card and the game, but the VPU keeps resetting graphics even though I have not played the game in like a week. I hope this all made sense, I'm not very good with computers and I appreciate anyone's help.

I used the CD I got when I bought the card.

My Automatic Updates is turned on and it has asked for .Net Framework 2.0 when it tried to install the Catalyst Control Center.

Oh, alright. I have to download Internet Explorer 7.0. I use Firefox as my browser. Um.. Will it be any trouble to install the .Net Framework if I don't have a real version of Windows?

See if this applies

Q: What are the details of the genuine Windows offer?

A: To help customers who unknowingly purchased a counterfeit version of Windows XP, Microsoft has created two genuine Windows offers for those who qualify:

Complimentary offer: Microsoft will make a complimentary copy of Windows XP available to customers who have been sold counterfeit Windows. Customers will be required to submit a proof of purchase, the counterfeit CD, and a counterfeit report with details of their purchase. Only high-quality counterfeit Windows will qualify for the complimentary offer.

Electronic License Key Offer: Microsoft will offer an alternative for customers who find out via the WGA validation process that they are not running genuine Windows, but do not qualify for, or choose not to take advantage of, the complimentary offer. These customers will be able to license a Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP online for a price of $99 for Windows XP Home edition or $149 for Windows XP Professional. The Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP will include a new 25-character Product Key and a Windows Product Key Update tool that will allow customers to convert their counterfeit copy to genuine Windows XP electronically.
