New Computer

Post by [McN]The_QuakR on Mon Jun 06, 2016 7:27 am

Hey guys, about a couple months go I had to make a switch to a new computer.

I was previously running an HP Envy laptop which came with Windows 8 pre-installed, 8 gb of RAM and a 750-gb hard drive. Unfortunately for me, since using that computer for gaming it was presenting me with a plethora of major bugs, glitches, crashes. Those problems grew gradually worse over time. I would experience a blue screen of death in random spots, the computer spontaneously restarting itself, sometimes freezing up during booting, the computer freezing up, and even instances of the screen going out of whack. I constantly ran anti-malware checks for viruses, trojans, hijackers, rootkits, adware, spyware, everything you can think of, but even cleaning the system of malware did nothing to resolve all my problems. I also ran a hardware check to see if there was any damage or major wear, there was none.

However, the laptop did not come with a dedicated video card. It was drawing from other critical resources, CPU and such, for video support. There's no doubt in my mind that was a major factor, if not the very reason, why the computer was giving me so much grief.

Anyway, I am past that laptop, and am now running on a new computer, a gaming desktop to boot! It's a CyberPowerPC desktop with an Acer brand HD monitor, gaming keyboard and mouse, Windows 10 pre-installed, 8 gb RAM, 1 TB hard drive. It did not come with Wi-Fi by default, I had to make a special shopping trip to pick up a USB Wi-Fi adapter, but everything is working so well on this machine, and I am having fun with it.

Where the laptop was not able at all to play Doom 3 BFG Edition, this computer is easily able to do so, but I hope to upgrade the video card and the CPU soon so I can get a copy of Doom 4. Twisted Evil
