When I get drunk...I often end up making an ass of myself on social networking sites....which I only frequent when I'm drunk.
The next day is like a scavenger hunt, trying to find all the oddball comments you left which you dont remember doing :D
Yeah, thats defintely an option, RMA.
But whats creating a dilemma for me is the fact that just sending it back will cause me to lose rather important files, things irreplaceable. My biggest concern is the 4 years of school work lost. I had some damn good papers in there!
Yes, the sound is constant/repeating..
and! it is under warranty!
Limited Warranty that is...need to find if I have an owner's manual to see what exactly that is, or try and find a statement somewhere.
This is actually a replacement drive sent to me after this incident.
heh, as far as I can tell all I've lost is maybe 5ish hours of work and some of my brother's photos he had me store for safe keeping (heh); well anything of importance anyway.
Just realized all of my work from my undergrad studies is gone, well the digital...
Well, the story goes...
60gig WD Caviar
Well, I hadn't formatted/freshly installed windows in quite some time so it wasnt a shock when things began to go wrong. IE would only open to a 'Sorry Windows must shut down this program' error and a few...
heh, my roomates and their damn cases/power supplies
this time one of em bought a new case/ps off of ebay
upon receiving it he swapped out his parts and put em in the new case
i checked everything out and it looks good
plugged everything in, turned it on, hit power button
fans run for...
sittin here blaming me!!?!?!
it is a friend, and he went against everyone's advice to get 350w+.
like i said, he went to circuit city and got conned into the 300w
but would a small power supply really screw the vid card up?
his old one was...whatever was in his old compaq 250w...
thanks for the spiffy power supply pic
ok, just switched out my GeForce 3 w/his Radeon
the GeF3 worked fine in his comp
the Radeon did was having same prob in my system
card must have gone bad
odd though, because it was working up to switching out the mobo/proc
i'll get a RMA going...
hey everyone, I was hoping for some suggestions on power supply size for a new system a friend has built
Leadtek WinFast K7NCR18D-Pro mobo
AMD Athlon XP 2400+
ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (128meg)
512meg DDR 333mhz
Originally he had only 250w supply (from his old case) and the boot process...
well i dont have teh chance right now to take a closer look but i know that the power cable connection was much more moveable than it should be...it had some slight play to it vertically that i know shouldnt be there
the master/slave jumper is another good idea
i'll be sure to keep on eye on...
