    Thanks for the replies guys, very much appreciated. I was trying to unstall a 32bit version and later found out it was a 64bit machine. I installed a 64bit version and it installed ok. Thanks

    Thats what I thought but wasnt too sure. I downloaded the 64bit version off here and it installed first time, no errors. The pc is working fine now BUT I cannot get it to connect to the internet. Ive plugged it straight into my router and when I click on EI, it comes up with the old cannot display page message. Ive tried two different cables just in case but its still the same........errrr ....help

    Not all is well Im afraid. I have just tried to install the ATI driver and now the system only boots as far as the windows loading screen then crashes. I can press reset but it does the same. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:worthy:

    Im clutching st atraws if it is the right driver. Ive tried going through add hardware via the control panel but for some reason I cannot get it to connect vie the internet and dowload the driver this way. I used a program called Driver Genius (im sure you have heard of it). It came up with this one driver, all the others were fine. Each time the pc has crashed, Ive been doing a fresh install as this was the only way I knew to get the system working again (Im a real ametuer at this stuff). May Driver Genius wasnt the way to go BUT I do not have the original CD. I wish I did as this would save me (and my new friend, acrsn) a hell of a lot of grief. Cheers mate:worthy:
