I only have a few minutes before my computer will have a connection error to this site any many other sites. I have an Nvidia 7600 GS video card and a P4 processor with 2 gb of ram. A few days ago, while I was playing TF2, my screen had fuzzy straight lines going across the screen and it would temporarily freeze the game. It has recently gone worse. Every time I scroll down at 1280 x 1024, the screen will become fuzzier and fuzzier until the screen freezes and goes black and kinda resets back to a fuzzy screen. At 800 x 600, its still fuzzy but the screen doesn't freeze. Also, there have been connection time outs to many sites except for my UC Davis login site. I am able to login to my UC Davis account but can't really load any other sites like CNN. I found a trojan using Trend Micro but doubt that would affect my comp that much. The weather here has gotten hotter and I have had my computer cover removed for about 2 months for more ventilation. I used the onboard and PCI ethernet insert and both had the same result of connection time outs after 7 minutes or so after restarting the computer. Any thoughts? Thanks. Also, now I am currently running with no drivers for the video card which is allowing me to do this work. I had used the most recent and a very old driver for my video card with the same result. When I attempted to upgrade Windows Xp Pro to Windows Xp Pro, it gave me an installation error of cannot install a218kbq1.sys. A second time of trying to upgrade it using my Xp Pro cd, it gave me an install error of ano384gh.sys. Also, I am able to play Starcraft with the drivers with no problem. My internet is supplied by UC Davis.
