the compatibliity modes has had it's uses in the past, and did have a minor effect, but it did not do much. Tried the MSconfig thing, still nothing, i think there might be some driver i'm missing, or a driver that i have that is conflicting. anywho, reinstalling windows probably won't have much of an impact since i did that about 3 weeks ago, don't think much could have changed since then.
i surrender, the wonderfull world of personal computers has done it again.
Guess i'll just wait till Psy gets its backwards compatibility for the 360 and buy the xbox version -_-'
