Re: where to start

PSU checked out good. How can I check out the MOBO to make sure and could it be anything else...a software issue maybe??

Re: where to start

I'll have to try them out. I am glad I listened to you guys and bought the Corsair. It has a five year warranty so if it turns out to be the problem I am covered. It doesn't smell at all though so I am scared it will be MOBO.

Re: where to start

I will do that. Its a Corsiar I didn't think it likely to go out.


P.S.
Darkstar, I didn't know until recently that your Avatar is the Stone brewery logo ( or looks exactly like it). Have ever tried their "double bastard" ale?

Re: where to start

first thing I did was update all the drivers. I have played a few hours of Dragon age II with no problems. I just tried to boot it up and entered BIOS to check and it did the same thing from BIOS. Suddenly shuts off. I have a main board that just went bad don't I??

what version

I am looking for a windows 7 OS that will install on two machines, a dual boot MAC setup and a fresh install on a PC ( 64 bit). I see a OEM version and an OEM 3 pak but no OEM 2 paks. Will a regular OEM work for me and what happens when I upgrade my PC again??

It is XP and the backup I created using XPs backup utility is useless and the documents and settings folder is no where to be found.I must have gotten hit with a targeted virus or something that deletes that folder or something. I even ran windows recovery console and it scanne...

Re: read error

I slaved it and it is readable. Could I use a program to copy the whole drive to another HDD? What could have happened that I can get into it and see the files but it will not boot??

read error

went to turn on my PC and I get " disk read error press control alt delete to reset" I can get into bios fine but no boot. I have tried checking and or moving the HDD connector to a different plug but still same problem. Bios shows the drive connected. Do I have a blown HDD or could it be the MOBO ?
