Built my P.C for almost a year now.
Nvidia Asus: 550ti
asus mother board (forgot which one)
Working great until I powered it on after dinner last night.
The Aero does not work (i.e no glass window appearance). I can live with that but then the weird thing:
Skype, MSN, skydrive all got the APPCRASH error.
I scanned for virus got nothing, scanned it again still nothing (full scans by the way).
Then I decided to resinstall the graphic card driver ( the error given to be my windows is that the graphic card driver was not supported/ too old)
This morning I decided to check out the Nvidia card. Took the card out used the integrated intel graphics. Comp worked fine got skype aero msn everything.
Restarted just to be sure and BAMB, everything back to square one. Skype msn and skydrive got the APPCRASH again and AERO is not functioning.
So I installed my 550ti back... first boot, got everything working...
second one, back to square one.
booted again after that, everything is still crashing.
I can use the comp, just no IMs not (using that desktop now)
