force with 2005 software bad drive
« on: May 18, 2020, 04:23:58 pm »
I picked up a force with 2005 software on it. got it working but the monitor it dark. so that's one issue. the hard drive is dying sometimes it starts clicking and takes forever to load. I was able with a Linux boot cd and a pc I had laying around with ide and clone the drive but not the bad sectors so graphics are not all there on the game selection screens. so it looks like the key is good. i do have a 15" lcd I hooked up and it looks great I was thinking of pulling out the tube chassis and use that and swap the touch screen. I know its a hack but just for home and don't want to spend anything on this. is it worth trying to get a newer key and software for this? is there much better games on the 2011 version. the keys are expensive. or should I just get the restore disks for 2005. thanks for any opinions on this.

The games are much better in 2011.  But get sick of what you have first before you upgrade

thanks, to upgrade with a key to 2011 is more then the game is worth. would rather save up for newer ion lcd version machine
