    the main menu works an everything

    an when i play sims 2 a game that also worked before geting the new hard drive it loads everything everything shows up only thing that happends is it goes blocky an black lines pop up al over the screen it sometimes looks like some of the blocks are zoomed in while the others are zooomed out or normal thats the best i can discribe whats going on if you can help i would greatly appreciate it....also it seems to really mess up when it has to use alot of cpu when theres alot going on in the screen or a second window pops up in the game

    Ok it's pre built. I thought it was hand build so you would have know the brand and model of each part. If after changing HD on a new OS game crash, I would just start by re-installing windows. The install process could have gone wrong, thishappen time to time. Also make sure that you use the good driver for each component, Videocard, mobo, network card, chipset etc. After that we will start to look at hardware The HDD could have suffer from a bad PSU which couldaffect other part but that would be quite an apocaliptic diagnostic. Let's start by the begining

    Then start testing other part. First of all, update all driver,also try to roll back driver for the video card and motherboard chipset.

    For the GPU :
    Furemark. Use the stability test and Xtrem burning mode option. Look at it for 8-10 minut and try to see if you can catch any artifact of graphic bug.

    ATI tools. Dosen't matter if you have ATI or Nvidia, hit the scan for artifact ption for another 8-10 min

    Memory : Start multiple instence of this memtest with a value of 512 each. Make sure you DO NOT exeed complete system memory. If you have 1GB and windows use 512MB then start 1 with 512 for a total of 1GB, you follow me?

    HDD : Depending of the brand of the HD, use the manufacturer test. If you are more techy the Hitachi drive test ( the bootable one ) is the best and it work with any drive, but you have to know how to make it bootable.

    Complete system stress test : Download Everest Ultimate install it and start the stress test in the tools section if I remember.

    If none of these test give decent result, try re-installing windows. Maybe your new install just crapped out.
