I'm fine thanks, Kate, how about you?

Without any substantial information, it's going to be hard to help you. I don't think either of us know exactly what they've done. The most obvious test, at this point, would be to try a different graphics card.

I'm good now that summer is finally over.

The graphics card is fairly new ATI 4350.

Besides the new HDD, it is the newest part of the PC. Michael thinks I should be looking at a new PC, I'd rather fix it. (It's cheaper)

Perhaps I should wait till I can have a look myself.

I guess (with the emphasis on 'guess') there could be a compatibility issue with the new graphics card and the motherboard, or maybe the PSU isn't big enough to power the graphics card?

Hi Simon.  :)

Guess is about all I do these days.

They know that it's a hardware issue, and that's as far as they have gotten.

I did ask if I needed to get a new MB, Michael suggested a new computer.

That would make it a lot easier to fix.  ::)

Hopefully, a new computer wouldn't need fixing!  ;)

Very true, but his suggestion lacked financial backing.

Oh, and I should mention that at the end of May, a large group of Aussies are headed to London. Michael will be one of them.
