I bought a new video card & had it sent in & it won't work with the old MB. The MB really does need to be changed too since everything else has been changed (memory, HD, power supply), but I don't know if I have the money right now.
The video card has to be changed ASAP, it's about ready to blow. I've been holding on by a thread with the old one.
I called the computer store recommended by expats & the guy isn't there. The girl told me they have Astrok (?) MBs & they are $68. Has anyone heard of that one, any good?
Which MBs are the best so I can search prices. Problem is I can't wait for it to be shipped in. I have to take the computer in now. I'm seeing pink on my screen now.
It was recommended to update the bios settings to accomodate the new video card, but if they screw it up, I'm out a MB.
