Will try that. I think it's more like my pc. This is a Sony. Sony is so proprietary. I installed a new graphics card in here and it will not install. I even had an expert from Sony try to fix it and he can't do it.
When I opened this computer up I noticed the power supply is not standard and I cannot take the DVD/CD writers out without a special tool.
I am in the process of rebuilding my other pc that crashed. I think I will use Linux on that one instead of buying Windows.
