    I wonder if the bios got corrupted and needs to be updated to F10e.

    I did not update any drivers on my own. Not sure if windows took over and thought something needed updated. But I was never ask about any updates.
    As I play my game online, when going to new maps, they auto load before I can join the map.

    I wonder if the bios got corrupted and needs to be updated to F10e.

    If the BIOS were corrupt you wouldn't have gotten XP to load. A corrupt BIOS is usually terminal, ie the PC won't boot at all.

    I just got done with loading window 7 RC 32 bit and the same problem, then reloaded windows 7 RC 64 bit and the same problem.
    Should the bios be in 32 or 64 bit? It was in 64 bit when I loaded xp and win7

    Update
    I reinstalled win xp and all looked ok. Then loaded the latest drivers. All hell broke loose with my video. As I was loading the drivers I started to get lines on the screen and thing were slowing down. At boot up when it came to the loading windows. Instead of a black back ground, I got a black back ground with short blue lines all in rows that covered the whole screen. Once into windows is like nothing is in it place. Blocks that donít belong. Just a thin line of back ground with the rest a black background. Itís like there is no video ram.

    From the looks of those screens it's definitely something to do with the video card, that's for certain.

    First try another driver (again). The one that originally came with the card on the install CD would be ideal. This should in theory eliminate the driver as an issue. If the problem still occurs, get hold of another card to test with from somewhere.

    Well I just ordered me an EVGA GeForce GTX 275. Hope that takes care of my problems. If the new card works then I will need to find some one that wants a bad card for parts.

    I have installed the video card and my computer is back up and running. I still have to load the new drivers and other tweaks after i do an image backup. but at least i know it was the card that caused the problems. the 8800gtx must have been bad from the start when i bought it used, as it was never smooth when scrolling the internet.

    Thanks guys for your help in finding the problem.
