calling all tech-heads!!! you guys have been really helpful in the past so........
last night i loaded flight combat simulator 3 onto my computer, a Sony, pentium 4, 1.5 Ghz. according to the game requirements, my machine should of handled this game easily. i completed the install and re-started my computer as required to complete installation. well, here is were the problem started.
the computer restarted and then just froze at the windows boot up screen. the fan kept running and running like it does when the computer is first turned on. this went on for a while, so i restarted it again (ctrl-alt-delete) and the same thing happened.
after un-plugging everything and re-starting numerous times, still my computer wouldn't work, so i pulled out the "system restore" CD that came with my computer and ended up erasing everything on my harddrive and had to re-load all my software. luckily all i do is talk to you guys and play games, so didn't lose anything important.
everything seems to be working fine now........so did my computer crash? did i do the right thing? or what should i have done?
