does anyone know any other options? im realy pissed of right now. it stopped working when the computer suddenly crashed and rebooted while loading the battlefield 2 demo. i had just upgraded the ram the same day. i feel it has nothing to do with the ram because i used the one i had before and still the same problem. I can't reformat because i lost all the cd's when i moved.

i know im probobly f**ked but im begging for a solutions here.

Well get a copy of Memtest86 and see if the RAM is the problem. If you have a 2nd computer, you should try to take the HD and throw it in as a slave drive on the 2nd computer and run an A/V scan on it. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT EXECUTE ANY FILES ON THE SLAVE DRIVE

Why? Well if there is a virus then you might get infected again on the 2nd computer.
