very slow rebuild
K so it's been a minute since I was last here but new problems have risen. My boyfriend put this computer together for me to have as my own. It's a gigabyte motherboard F2A85X-UP4. I went on Gigsbytes website to download drivers like I was told to do and when I try to open them my computer say's it can't open the file. One site called hr drivers downloads them into a RAR file and even with 7 zip I can't open. This is slower than the one I had that was infected. Please help me.
Strange, 7zip supports RAR file unpacking. Shouldn't be an issue unless you are just trying to 'Open' the file vrs 'unpack', which you must do first.
RAR is a file compression, it's shrunk to make smaller. When you unpack it, it returns the file to what it should be. So you'll get the file 'driver.rar' and expand/unpacked it becomes 'driver.sys' which can then be installed. Compressed files can't be 'opened' as such because it's not a recognised file type like sys or exe or dll.
I am trying to download Gigabyte drivers. I can't seem to find anymore windows updates. My computer is slow, unresponsive at times, won't recognize like my camera when I plug it and la la la, what a great thing it is to be trying to set up a computer by myself now. Thank you for any input or suggestions.
