Thanks, I will try that. About the over clocking, I wasn't the one who built the computer I just bought it from my parents coworker who's husband ran a game shop that let you come in and pay by the hour to play games on their computers. When I got the computer It didn't have CD or DVD drives or even an operating system installed so I have had to do everything myself, with no experience in computer setup, the hardest thing I had to do before this was figure out why our CD drive wasn't working on our then new Dell (it wasn't plugged in. STUPID DELL!!!!). It has been like a very long crash course in how to get a computer up and running. I spent $250 for the computer and an old 19" monitor, $10 for a 15.4" flat panel from my moms work, $40 for the DVI-D cable for the flat panel, $125 for XP Home, and now $100 for the hard drive. I thought it was a good deal to begin with, but now I'm going insane just trying to get it to work. I just want to be able to play my games and learn to use Ubuntu without something causing my computer to stop working.
Forgot to add there is a message popping up now whenever I try to boot from the 250gb HDD. It says that the NTLDR or something like that. I looked it up and it says its the Windows NT loader so if it's missing does that mean I'll have to reinstall windows? No big deal if I do since I just installed it and have no files on it yet.
