    I just went through some major computer whoas too. Finally got it working, but the onboard secondary IDE controller still doesn't work right. I'm thinking it a driver issue that's going to have to get hammered out, along with a bios update.

    A cpu fan and a hard disk. Wow. I've never had a cpu fan go out, but I had a 40gig 75gxp die on me. IBM swapped it out with a 60gig 120gxp. It's my main system drive, right now.

    Case cooling is important.

    [​IMG] I just want to get my hands on the equipment needed for my liquid nitrogen cooling system idea ;)
    That said though, when i upgraded my motherboard and processor, the way the mother board was laid out it was right under the PSU. And when my PSU blew I got a bigger one. Needless to say the safety measures implemented in the BIOS by me meant my computer shut down every 2 hours max. So a nice new case was bought, LOADS of room in it :D The bigger CPU fan I bpought at the same time, might have been a little overboard for just a 950 athlon, but it's damn cool ;)

    [​IMG] Astin X - have you tried talking to your PC? It helps a lot :thumb: I often have quite good conversations with mine.

    The inevitable has happened.

    Baldurs Gate 2 has officially died on me. I have had to uninstall it off of my computer never to be installed again. The sounds had been corrupted and displayed DBMs meaning I am unable to run the game at all. The CDs have been abducted by aliens apart from CD3 which took sanctuary at a friends while the ToB Cd hid in a blue CD case - the others were resting peacfully in their original pack before they were brutally stolen away from us. I hope for their safe return and hope that next time the kidnappers visit they take the mess away with them or at least tidy up before they leave :wail:

    I gave up on BG2 as well. Stupid discs, always they have to screw something up. Would have broken them, if had not any unneeded people in my apartment. (Mother and her husband and stupid half-brother) Whats the meaning of life anyway? Noone cares about me and I don't care about anything as well, except this comp and my writings.

    I made up with my pc since its behaving itself, but I've got a number for a catholic priest.
    My harddrive probably died because my cpu fan was not doing the work and my pc only rebooted about ten times a day.
    Overall for now, my pc seems to be a happy chappy.

    Yeah.

    It's illegal to kill your family members.

    But if you're really sneaking, like in the shadows and stuff, you can sneak up behind them and throw a water balloon (filled with ice cold winter water) at the back of their head.

    It's totally worth it one time...
