Club3D 7900GTX - Why no max settings on Oblivion?! - Page 5

post #41 of 71
Thread Starter 
Right.... well:

I did use driver cleaner. I removed the drivers from my 6200, then using the device managed 'uninstalled' the 6200, shutdown, swapped it out for the 7900, booted up, ran driver cleaner 2-3 times, re-installed 84.25 drivers, installed coolbits.

Then i did a defrag / error checking, and then ran some benchies

Can some1 walk me through doing a reformat? Baring in mind this is a factory built PC, and the windows disc i have is an OEM copy (afaik)
I have used this disc before to 'repair windows' when i accidentally deleted all the windows sounds.

Please give me help on reformatting!

of and @ Remonster - You have a 4.2Ghz Dual core, so no bottleneck for you!

And again, I CANNOT OC THIS PROCESSOR ON AN OEM BOARD. So please stop telling me to do that

You could always use your 200 to buy a nice motherboard like one from ASUS. The P5LD2 and P5WD2 are supposed to be really nice boards for the money. Add a new cooler like the BT or Tuniq Tower 120 and you should be able to get a nice overclock off of that chip.

Those are DDR2 mobo's, which would mean having to buy new RAM as well, rather than being able to use my current DDR.

Whats the best route? Get a 3700 and A8N board, (keeping my old RAM, getting 2gb later on)

OR

Keep my CPU, and get a P5xD2 board and 1Gb DDR2? (wont be able to afford 2gb, makes upgrading to 2gigs later a bit of a waste as i would have the 1 gb sitting about)

I think the first method is better, as i want to go AMD anyway.

Just did a fresh install of 84.25 drivers. i was thinking it might have been because i had norton on last time i installed, so i uninstalled the drivers, rebooted, turned norton off, ran driver cleaner 5-7 times then reinstalled...

My score on AM3 is now 65k (10k gfx+8.5k cpu) down from 68k (11k gfx+8.8k cpu)

I want to try a reformat, but am unsure about how to do it. How can i reformat my drive that is running windows? :S i only have 1 HDD. (its all 1 big partition if that makes a difference)

It seems i can do a fresh install of windows using my OEM disc, but it will require 're-activating' How do i do this? help please!!

Go into your BIOS, choose Boot Priority and set the first to CD-ROM drive, insert your Windows Disk, Reboot. It will tell you "Press any key to boot from CD", press a key, then follow the instructions in the Windows setup. When you're done, set the BIOS back to normal and you're done.

Edit: Keep in mind you will lose all your stuff... so backup anything you might need.

Yes you can... why couldn't you? Reformating is just re-installing windows. Back up any files you need BEFORE you reformat, then follow the instructions above. Keep in mind that you will need to reinstall drivers for all your devices.

If you have only one drive and you wanna keep your data safe this is how it goes:
1.If you have more than one partition you can skip to no3. If you have only one partition on the drive, install "partition magic". Make sure you have a couple of gigs free space to use for the backup of your data.
2.With partition magic resize the current partition (there's a resize button) to a smaller size, the difference between the drive capacity and the size of the new partition will be unalocated space. Use this unalocated space to create another partition and click apply. The soft will do the rest.
3.So now you have at least 2 partitions. The win partition will be formatted so be careful you don't leave anything important on it. Now it's the fun part Reboot and select fron the bios first boot drive the cdrom, save the settings and boot from the CD.
4.You'll be asked som' like "If you wanna set up win now press enter", so press enter.
5.You'll have to press F8 at some point to agree the EULA
6.It'll ask you to choose on what partition you want to install. Choose the WIN partition wich you want to format.
7.You'll be asked what kind of file system do you want on it. I advice you to choose "Format with the FAT32 file system". You can choose NTFS if you want, I just use fat32 for compatibility reasons.
8.After formatting the install should go very smooth
9.When booting in windows and all the install thing is done you'll have to install DX9.0C (if you don't have WINXP SP2), the mobo drivers and the 84.25 detonators.
10.That's it

You know, you could just burn your important files to CD/DVD so that way you can just reformat your hard disk to start with a totally clean slate.
