The Machine

Okay, so the Machine came in and had like a google of problems right out of the box. So much technology in this thing that Windows Vista just doesn't know what the heck to do with it, so it's unstable. It makes a loud chime when pushing the power button...loud and annoying enough that I want to find the internal speaker and disconnect it. Random drivers will fail at any given restart. For example, just 30min ago, all usb devices failed which a double restart could only fix. Fast computer, but I think I should've gone with Windows XP. Vista's pretty, but not very stable, as I am learning.

pretty cool computer. i got half that. quod core but 8gb of ram. sits around 1-2 cpu usage. of course mines not a gaming computer... just a regular desktop from circuit city. lol. i got a 360 but it's the halo 3 version and i just got it back from the red ring of death. i got a regular 2000watt home theater 7.1 channel surround sound polk audio. my computer is running an optical cord from it to the surround so it's Dolby digital. problem is... my 300watt 8-inch sub blew out from loud gaming so now i got a 100-watt. crap. i'm also running on 1650x1250 with a 22" Neovo Monitor.
