Hi, i recently bought a new sparkle geforce 8800 GT 512 cool pipe 3 video card. On putting it into my computer and connecting the power supply nothing came up on my monitor.
With a different video card everything worked as it should.
Does anyone have any ideas of what i could try to do to get it to work? Or a pc with a PCI express slot on it that i could put the card into to see if the card works?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have lived in Holloway since I was 11 and I have never had a problem with safety. You have to use your common sense like in any area during the night when there may not be a lot of people at night but I have always felt really safe. There is also a nice community around here and you get to know the people at the local shops/ stalls which adds to feeling safe. I love living here. There are also really good travel / bus links from most parts of central London so you can come home late at night without having to change lots of times in dodgy areas. There is also numerous places to buy food (organic and otherwise) so you never even have to step into the Supermarkets!
What do you require tutoring in?
I'm a mature student with two children aged 11 and 14. I've recently moved into N7 and wondered whether there are any local tuition centres or private tutors.
Hi, I've been thinking of getting involved in some kind of theatre group to - did anyone reply to your question with any info?? Let me know- i'd really appreciate it! Kelly

In that shopping arcade(in the block on Holloway Road between Seven Sisters Road and Tollington Road), like in the entrance that goes towards the Morrison grocery store, just behind the Burger King, there was a salon that says they do tanning. I haven't been there personally, so I don't know if they're great or not, but yeah, it's quite a central location.
Hey i'm moving to Holloway road in October. I don't know any one in london!! I'm looking for friends to go out on the town with!!! Also any good pubs and clubs in the area? Please get in touch at
I had the same concerns as you moved two years ago no regrets
So am I!! let me know if you found a drama group!!
I have lived off Holloway Road for the past 4 years and have never had a problem with safety in the evenings nor have my flatmates. As the previous entry mentioned, the area is going through a lot of positive change at the moment and you can see that everywhere you look. It is for people who are on a budget but who have moved to London to really get a sense of what the real city is like. Holloway is close to everything you need and is a great area to live.
lucky you the arsenal fan is quit good peopel i am living in hornsey road for 3 years , cool i like it .
Any one know of a tanning salon near Holloway rd/ Parkhurst Road?
hi sweetiepie, u just have to use common sense regarding safety, there is no specific time that is more unsafe than others to be out.cos there is 1 0r 2 bad people does not mean the area is bad!!!! "bad" things happen in every area. My advice is to "WAKEY, "WAKEY" AND SMELL THE COFFEE, HAVE FUN IN hOLLOWAY,GREAT CHEAP CLOTHES SHOP!
I posted stuff about how I'm a young female from Australia who's new to the UK and moving to Parkhurst Road. Summary of what was said:
Did research both on the web and through asking friends and flatmates-to-be about the area, as well as walking around there myself.
Found it to seem like an area in mid-gentrification phase. There's a large council housing estate, teens hollering at each other, illegal DVD sellers on the street. But there were also a lot of shops and decent-looking people about.
I went during a weekend afternoon, so perhaps it really does get rough after dark and I got lulled into false sense of security, etc. blah blah
Then onto part 2 which I posted above :)
There's no user interface input validation that limits the amount of characters you put in the text box, thus causing it to screw up at the database end.
So yeah, just wanted to ask, is the area really as shady after dark as everyone's been telling me? I heard about the bus-stabbing incidents, but at what time of the night did they occur? At what time of the day should a young woman not be seen walking around by herself?
I've got a few weeks before I start work, so I'll probably be wandering around during the day when most people are at work. I want to be cautiuous but not to the point where I lock myself up at home all day and only wander out between 6 to 8pm or on the weekends!
Any additional hints and tips about what streets to not accidentally wander into and what time of the night it gets rather precarious?
Would be much appreciated! :)
hello? sorry trying to post something but it's encountering an OLE DB error. if you see a multiple post saying the exact same thing, apologies in advance
DON"T DO IT
I too am looking in that area?
I will move to here on June. Please let me know is it a good place and any activities near seven sisters road or Holloway?I want to meet more people who live near here!!I come from Hong Kong.I speak in English and Cantonese.Nice to meet you all.

hi if ur moving here you aare coming at the right time, the area is improving a lot since the announcement of the stadium.
the only time they are a problem is on matchdays as streets get closed 2-3 hours b4 and after the game. im not a gooner but must say since it has opened they have been well behaved and to my knolage not been a problem....
more of a problem....is the drunks on holloway rd late at night and the illegal taxi's on almost every street corner and the day time cig (carpet sweepings in fake boxes) seelling there wares all up holloway and seven sisters rd
but u will b ok, some gr8 bars, gastro pubs (try st johns tavern junction rd best food in area) and we have a cinema
doctor Endoman at 140 Holloway Road N7 8DB
The area is okay and it's also improving rapidly. You don't get trouble from the football just lots of people so you need to know when matches are being played so you are not trying to get anywhere .
Hope it goes well
I have read your ad and I could offer some help.
I live in in Holloway and I have good training skills, as I have a 12 week year old pup, who I have trained from a young age. Im 16, and enjoy dog walking.
Im avaliable everyday as im at home taking care of my own pup who is also now being walked.
Contact me if you are intrested. Thanks
Alan Menzies is a fantastic dog trainer and I believe he is reasonable-I think he was when I was taking my Staffie to see him a few years back. If you walk around on the Heath, you'll find loads of people who have benefitted from his training classes.
Flat 3 Roding House Barnsbury Estate, London, N1 0JG
I am just about to move to Hornsey road in Holloway. Does anyone know if this area is nice? Do you get much trouble from the Arsenal fans, its very near the Emirates stadium!
Please could anyone recommend reasonably priced dog training classes in Holloway camden or Islington.
Thanks a lot
Did you find one? im dead keen to!
did you find anything on this? Im keen to
I have drunk at the Herbert Chapman for 5 years and love it. It can be intimadating when you firs twalk in as it is a proper "local" pub - but rest assured it can be the best place to meet good friends.
It is near Holloway Road station - the otehr side of the road - near to McDonalds
I have a lovely GSD bitch of 10 months. She's completed training classes & passed a kennel club good citizenship award. I walked her regularly myself but have been involved in a road traffic accident & it is making it hard for me to continue.
My son (16) helped train her but with dark nights & mornings parks are locked when he could walk her off lead. This means she's lost her recall & will not always come back when called for a food reward.
The money I'd paid for more training classes is instead going towards some 1 to 1 training/dog walking sessions, so hopefully she'll get back on track.
I'm not working but am concious that my dog needs to be exercised & have training commands maintained. She's friendly, not vicious & lovely to be around.
I'm hoping I'll eventually be able to resume this responsibility myself, but I'm not sure when, so am trying to make a concrete plan for her in the meantime so that I can keep her.
If you can help please email me
Decent bars...I'd suggest Big Red near the Camden Rd/Seven Sisters junction and definitely Bar Cosa which isn't far from Highbury Corner. If you're at the Archway end look for St Johns on Junction Road
Cafes? Not sure what you mean by cool but if you don't mind busy, loud and not too trendy but with real atmosphere, the Ecuadorian El Rincon Quiteno opposite the university's tower building is fun! Especially when the owner's start dancing...
Oh and there is a cool new delicatessen called La Peche Mignon on the side road next to the Lord Nelson pub.
As a recently converted northerner (first time living north of the river!) I need some advise. Any cool places to hang out in (cafe's/bars etc) around Holloway? I'm 26 so please no kiddie stuff!
Only really useful as a last resort, like Poland in the 1980s - bread runs out halfway through the day, pears seem to be considered exotic fruit, they sell two kinds of pasta and about fifty varieties of breakfast cereal. Do they get sent whatever other stores have ordered too much of? Can't see any other explanation for their bizarre stock buying choices. It's almost guarenteed they'll have just what you don't want.
does anybody remember the hill family from the holloway and islington area,there was alfie ,bill ,stanley dickie,lou and cissie are any of the family left still around sons or daughters or grandchildren.shirley and jean hill bill and marys daughters.

I'm looking for someone to play tennis with. I play at a club but its a bit of an effort to get to, so it would be good to find someone to play with locally as well.

I love performing arts and want to get involved in a drama group - is there one in/near Holloway
(I am 22)
I used to go there and it is quite good, wide variety of classes, although the loos in Sobell are terrible! They do various membership options that would let you use gym/pool/classes as well as other gyms in other boroughs of london. Pop in and ask.
Hi - I am thinking about joining Sobell/Highbury and Islington gym.
How is it? Good or Bad?
Also as they are both run by Aquaterra - if I join does it mean that I can go to both gyms/pool on the one memebership

Hi! I am a beginner, I am doing a rollerskating (inline)course at cityskates, and I am looking for someone to skate with, inline or quads, like the outside of the new Arsenal Stadium down Hornsey road in N7.

I'm looking at a flat on Bunning Way, N7. I don't know the area. How is it? Safe and nice? Is it close to shops and services? I saw on the map that Bunning Way is near Pentonville Prison. Is there anything to worry about? Thanks for your help!!
There is a club at the top of Hornsey Rd by Elthorne Park.
The Garage, opposite Highbury tube is a great night out.
Or, if you are desperate, Cheekos above the Archway Tavern.
Yes have to agree...VERY GOOD
There is a large car boot sale in Grafton school grounds on a Sat/sun. Opposite the Odeon, next to the post office.
There are a few clubs along Holloway road it depends on age and your own preference as to whether something there will suit you.
Try Dr Crippen of Hilldrop Crescent. (Off the hill going up to Holloway Prosin).
