So my friend recently just built his dream pc with the following:
Core i7 840
8GB DDR3 1333 Memory
2x XFX HD 5870
windows 7 pro x64
and he's had nothing but problems so far. for one, the screen is unable to display full resolution – even when 1920x1080 is checked in options there's letterboxing on all four sides.
additionally, games refuse to work, or work partially. bioshock, for instance, has no sound in-game – but not in menus.
CoD: MW works up to a certain level. basically, nothing really works as it should. i for one have no idea what the problem is, and sincerely hope the assorted experts here will be kind enough to help.
thanks in advance!
For some reason i want to say reset your cmos and make sure you enter the bios and load optimised defalts and save and exit. The important part being "save and exit" and not just exiting. Had some problems that you are having and that seemed to have fixed them.
