Did you buy your computer with Windows 7 Ultimate already installed?

Hey guys, sorry for extremely late reply, some developments happened, I might be returning the computer tomorrow, but to answer your questions, the ATI Asus graphics card I have IS indeed PCI Scannerman and I have 2GB of RAM sorry if it's confusing ^^"

Layback Bear, the computer CAME with Windows 7 Ultimate is what I was told

Just curious.
Does your computer have one of these Microsoft stickers?

If not what kind of sticker does it have?

If you can return it I would do so.

Return the computer.

It smells like a counterfeit install of Windows 7.

With the problems you are having and the fact that the original Microsoft sticker is scratch out gives off a smell that things are not right.
Even a re-manufactured (refurbished) computer should have a Windows 7 Microsoft sticker if Windows 7 has been installed.

Yeah you're right about that, the Windows sticker has been ripped off, some parts of it are still on the case, plus when going to see if Windows 7 is activated, it says something along the lines of *Status not available* and below on the ID section it says Not Available. So it seems the problems can come from Windows itself??

In such a case it'd be best to just return it?

Good for parts

If you didn't pay that much for it you could keep it for parts. It really depends on your interest. Sometimes older parts like the ones you have can be quite valuable to others. Returning it is your choice but I suspect it is as others say... Your o/s is likely not authentic, in which case you have a recipe for disaster brewing on your PC. If you can't get your operating system to verify that it is genuine you may as well scrap it.

Well update on the situation, I tried returning it today (lets not forget I only paid 25€ for it the full price was 50€, I was paying in halves, was gonna pay the rest by the end of this month) and ended up going away with the computer already mine, he doesn't want it anymore and even walked away with a free LCD Monitor I guess I could either fix it and keep it while upgrading it with better parts or scrap it and sell it for parts as Scannerman said. My interest in all cases is to keep it and fix it as computers that fall in my financial interest are hard to find, however given we cannot find what the problem is, places me in a tough situation, I could buy a graphics card for it just to find out that either the computer doesn't support it (I'd of course make my research so this shouldn't happen :P ) or the problem doesn't reside in the graphics card and I'd be buying a graphics card for nothing. So I'm in a rut D:
