Yes it's connected to a DVI adapter. It's weird though because before something installed then rebooted, the picture got fuzzy. It was fine at the beginning. The resolution I have it on now is the native one.

I will try that disk management thing when I get back home in a little while.

Also, no I did not install any of my security software yet.

Hmm. I have read many times that some monitors etc can act funny until it is connected like it wants to be.

But you say it seemed right at one point and now is not- is odd. Ya I asked about security, it is not above security hiding such things to protect your system. May hide drive names and or locations etc. Scratch that tho..

I do not know what to think about w7 sometimes???

After turning my computer back on, the screen is no longer fuzzy. It is just slightly 'off' (meaning that it is ever so slightly cut off on one side).

And I tried the rescan for the HDD, but it still didn't find it. It's odd because when I was doing the OS it showed up. And in the device manager it recognizes both drives.

Bart I guess it is possible w7 has some registry bug.

As for screen being a lil off. I do not notice it on my desk top but some games the gui can be as you say a lil off center. I think a lil more to the right than it should be. I notice the left side is a lil off- but is no adjustments for it using my lcd. Using my cry I could adjust such things. You may have to live with that and if as you say it is off center by just a lil..

As said I only notice that in a few games.. I never tried to see if I could adjust it in my vid card cp because it does not happen when on my desk top and I can not get to the cp when in game and full screen so. I might not sweat that..

As for your drive prob- if it is working and at proper speeds you might want to let that go to. I am thinking and posted same in my thread I started. Marvel is working it is just not showing where it should be in storage controllers. I do know it was there before- why not now I can not answer. I refuse to pull out hair over it or go trying to do a lot of junk and reinstalling drivers etc and maybe make it worst.

It is some other info I will look for laters. I think it is movie time or stalker soc or mafia2 time now. just had some bbq bacon chicken onion pizza- I am good to go..

Either way I hope you get it right and happy with it. Your system and or specs are sweet. I am very happy for ya. You post in gaming area- so I hope you have lots of joy gaming and our other forum member gamers too. W7 has some great folks. I am new here but this is maybe my favorite site or I would not hang out here like I do. I can talk a lot. I am pure gamer and budget rig enthusiast but because I am poor mostly. Some of us do not always agree on everything- but folks here are great. I am happy to be a 7 forums member..

See ya..

Yeah, it just stinks though because I want to put my music and stuff on this computer, but can't because I can't seem to be able to format the drive.


After looking through the disk manager I see that it says the drive is there. Says it is unallocated. I don't know how to format it since it is not at the top. Screenshot for reference:

Hmm I see what you are saying now. As fact I have seen same thing here talked about. Sorry I can not remember how it was fixed.

It might be you have to format it to ntfs and or the whole drive reformat it and then it shows up as it should- I am not sure about multi partitions I never multi partition my drives. If I remember right if you reformat it it fixes it- and seems it is just a storage drive any way.

I am almost certain I have seen same prob here or on other sites using w7. I think format solves it..

Hi BarTmaN just right click on the drive with unallocated space and select format (quick format) then assign a drive letter and it will show up in windows explorer.

PS: Nice build.

Going back to gaming- and seems folks here are good folks and honest. I wish it was a game many of us had and liked and we could all play together. Many games today are say suck gfwl junk and up to only 10 players. Maybe something like a ut04 would be good and can have 16 or more players. I love mp games I just hate cheaters etc.

I did play some of the older cod games they was ok- but ut04 was my game. I liked bioshock2 mp also, few maps tho and gfwl sucks and only 10 players. 10 players is not so bad tho, gfwl id rather fall on my head for fun. Then the suck crap with dlc's and the haves and have nots sucks. I never liked quake or hl2 mp stuff. UT04 you could play 10 new maps a day for 4 years and not play them all and seemed more fluid and a natural feel player movement etc and weapons balance etc. Other games seem more arcade or bouncy or jerky what ever.

UT04 was a sweet game and so many game modes and maps and skins what ever. Love that game- cheaters ran me off from it tho. Even 3 more folks for some borderlands co op would be great- better if it had up to 10 players tho- and some normal mp modes like tdm or dm would have really been great.
