No. You can edit him from the first screen (as you can any player in the game) but it will not carry over into a currently started CC.

I'm still using the stock fan and my CPU runs about 60 degrees normally which scares me when I'm playing Crysis Warhead and it is getting hotter than that. So what is a good fan within $40-55? and if possible no LEDs or red LEDs only
Mobo: Asus P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775-Gijutsu-
I hope you are talking Fahrenheit at 60. Anyway, I am tired and am to lazy to link. http://www.partspc.com/ProductDetails.asp?CatID=780&ProdID=12014 . It is 39 bucks after YOU send in the rebate. 53 and change before hand. Take care, and good grief, I am going to sleep ;^) .

[QUOTE="PESDan"]So if I got a DVI cable for my 19" widescreen LCD at 1024x768, it wouldn't make a difference?DieselCat18

yes....big difference !

It would not make a difference if his vid card or lcd needed an adapter to make it happen. If I were him, with the described problems, I would run through the motions. Unplug and replug my video cables. Try the pc on a different monitor. Re-seat my Video Card (ie. take it out, then put it back in) then reboot. Then my RAM, if that did not fix it. Then update all my drivers. Then scan for viri if those did not help. Did anyone read his post? He has discolorations in Word of all things...

Yes I did read his post...his original thread question above....and the answer to that is YES...it does and will make a difference with the quality.....I did not feel a need to read further about any additional issues he may have been having pertaining to anything other than graphics. If someone is looking to improve their visual quality, then using a DVi cable will certainly do that. And in his opening statement, he made no mention of the need to use an adapter.

No worries. It happens. Initial question VGA vs. DVI. You answered the initial quandary; without reading further. It is kinda like a typoe. We rarely mean them, but they happen on occasion (I usually don't read everything either) . I am in rare form this evening. My wife is in bed, I slept late, and I find myself with a couple of hours to help; for fun. No deadlines; just help. I like that.

I did not read the rules...gigapros
Can I please C_Jump this solicitor? A big sequential language jump up that says "I am a not following the terms of service" = "yes"? Can I leave a funny message in his post? Then you cannot delete it? Obvioulsly no. But that post was, well, a marketing thing. Get 'em. Or let me. I can be really fun; honest.

Everything was intagrated before my... 16 MB Voodoo 2 64 MB GF 3 (I still have it active on a PC at my other house) 256 MB ATI 700 Pro (Sold to a friend for $25 bucks, but could 35 FPS on Oblivion near maxed on a 3.0 cpu and 4 GB ddr1) 512 MB ATI 1650 (Waste of money). I wanted to sell that to a friend, but the performance did not touch the 700. I hate that card. 512 MB BFG 8800gt factory OC'd and re-OC'd a bit (I score roughly 14900 on Future Mark now with a system that cost 1k to build when the new 8k series was released; I am trying to get the core of 735, a memory at 1100, and a shader clock at 1755; my best stable results are at 715, 990, & 1721 I know a 14900 is not great, but on a 1k build? Good fun! BTW I reset my Quad 6600 to 2.4 as the rig was getting a bit hot (75 in intense gaming).

I have a Toshiba laptop that retailed for over 3k back in 2003. Nowhere near the specs of the Toshiba P105-S9312, but great for the time. The one thing they do have in common, is both were rendered nearly useless (in my case), and pretty much useless in yours. My wireless went 3 months after I bought it, and after numerous uninstalls of the wireless driver and reformats, it totally quit after about a year. No more warranty, so I bought a wireless usb, and no luck. Another? No luck? Me? Out of luck. Works fine via ethernet though. Anyway, I would suggest sending it back a.s.a.p. . It is most likely a motherboard problem, as the video is integrated. It could be the processor, maybe bad RAM, but... The first thing I would do is try and boot to Safe Mode 10-15 times. If I had the screen working on one of the boots I'd run a few virus/trojan/malware scans. I am about to give bad advice about blind system recoveries, so I'll hush. Try safe mode, viri scans in safe mode, and uninstalling then reinstalling video drivers in safe mode.

I'm not sure that anyone in here knows what they are talking about. The single biggest difference that anyone will notice between DVI and VGA are the colors. DVI shows rich colorful images while VGA shows a much washed out image in comparison. Taylorgc2004
Nah, some of the responses are legit. Some dated, but legit. ie. a 16-32ms response time for a 19" lcd with a dvi hookup is fair, if the person paid 2500+ dollars 9 years ago (In the US). Then we run into the problem of finding video cards that supported dvi in 99. I can't think of one, but I am sure that DDWG had something to power their new tech. Anyway, to agree with many, dvi is superior, just as hdmi trumps the afore mentioned dvi (Not in picture quality, but carrying audio and high def video at quick response rates obviously beats just carrying video). As an addendum I'll note that adding a dvi adapter to a video card with just a vga, or an lcd with only a vga makes no difference in picture quality. Take care Ces

Yep, I am disgusted. I have no problem with other games (Except MLB 2K8, but that was my fault, as the disk got a small scratch; I emphasize small). Madden 09 crashes 50% (at least) of the time on me. I have not gotten through one season. I train, then save, then hope for the best when I play. I went through 5 seasons in franchise on the PC version of '08, with maybe 3 crashes. It is ridiculous, that a game made with so little variables involved specification-wise, that it should be so flawed. I have been playing Madden since the Sega Days. If there is not a fix, whelp, I guess I will have to wait a bit to toss money on an inferior product. Great gameplay; when it works...

Nope, the board does not support sli.
