    I bought Super Mario 64 on ebay, it's arrived but the connectors are pretty dirty.

    Could I just use surgical spirit from a pharmacy to clean it?

    James Rolf advises diluted washing up liquid and cotton buds.

    I remember a rubber works on cartridge connectors. This is from Action Replay and International Soccer days so may be there's a better route.

    Surgical spirit? Diluted washing up liquid?

    Step 1. Blow into cart
    Step 2. Prop open cartridge doors on console with your fingers
    Step 3. Blow into console

    Repeat as needed until it starts working.

    My USB memory stick's been through the washing machine several times with no ill effects. :-)

    I've just run a sysreq check on Dishnored and got this message:

    Video Card
    Minimum: DirectX 9 compatible with 512 MB video RAM or better (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 / ATI Radeon HD 5850)
    You Have: ATI Radeon HD 5670

    Required You Have
    Pixel Shader version 5.0 5.0
    Vertex Shader version 5.0 5.0
    Dedicated Video RAM 512 MB 512 MB
    So, if the card matches those three requirements listed, in what way is it not suitable?

    @faux_carnation Considering it's an Unreal Engine game, I'd happily ignore that 'minimum' spec - it runs fine on my GTX 260, and probably many much worse cards.
