    Anyone know about computers?

    I keep getting a message saying my Intel(R) 82845G/GL Graphics Controller is going bad or is bad or something. My computer will restart in the middle of me using it and when it comes back on thats the message I get.

    My guess is either the Graphics card has a problem, there is a conflict between resources, or you may need to reinstall the software drivers for the card.
    I would start with the drivers.

    Replacing the card is not a problem, but It depends on your comfort level.

    replace the drivers, but if that doesn't work....

    go buy a video card, and install it........

    should take care of the problem............

    you may have to disable the onboard video card, but maybe not...... get the AGP...

    I got a method that will end that error code



    PC's have soo many bugs in them - but Macs are too **** expensive and less supported in general... I still prefer a Mac anyday... less issues and easier to configure...
