      Hi Everyone,

      I'll start with a story how this happened.
      I was just using my laptop for MSN Messenger/Windows Live Messenger, when I noticed the desktop background was flashing/flickering in what seemed to be a lower colour bit depth (If thats what it's called - basically the background had been reduced to alot less colours). MSN however, was fine in the foreground. About 10 seconds later the system blue screened, and I shut it off; thinking a restart would solve the issue.
      Now, When I turn the laptop on, the screen displays a bright white image, which fades to a kind of 'dirty' grey. The HD light flashes, as it would with a normal startup, and the power light remains on. It then stays like this, untill I power it off.

      I have tried connecting an external monitor to check if it was the screen, and the external monitor did not receive a signal. I have checked the RAM with no results also.

      The Laptop is a Philips Freevents X57 (which I suspect is a rebadged other brand, as Philips don't admit to making laptops (good sign...)). It's running Windows Vista, on a Core 2 Duo T5500 processor, with 2GB of RAM, and a NVidia Geforce Go 7400.

      I'm a bit unsure, but my guess is that its a motherboard/graphics problem?

      Thanks alot!

      It's been 5 months since my last journal?! Heh, doesn't seem that long, anyone done anything special in those months?

      I guess ill stick the advert in the middle - A friend's made a new comedy blog, its pretty funny, as blogs go anyway.

      www.umbraofidiocy.blogspot.com

      Now, I failed in an attempt to actually think of something worth a journal, So heres the ideas:

      -Make me write a 250 (or less, whatever sounds best) word journal on whatever subject people comment wanting

      -Ask me anything and I answer in the next journal

      -Making a list for just two points seemed too short

      Try out anything, lets see how this goes smiley6.gif

    • Failed XP Setup Dual Booting

      in Forums > Failed XP Setup Dual Booting | Follow this topic

      OrangeMonkey

      I have on my laptop a failed Windows XP Setup, so when attempting to boot, it presents me with the operating system choices:

      Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
      Microsoft XP Setup

      It defaults to the Windows XP Setup which fails every time, causing a blue screen, then a restart.

      Although I have the ability to change to my old Windows 2000 OS in the 2 seconds before it defaults to XP and boot up normally, it would be preferable to get rid of the XP option. Is there a way to do this?

      Thanks

    • Chain Modding?

      Ok here's the deal. OrangeMonkey has been chosen, so now he has to choose three people. Those three people then post on this journal and he will give you three mods each.

      Here's the trade-off: you have to make a journal just like this and choose three people and do the same thing. It seems a pretty cool idea, even if it is a little close to chain mail.

      Hurrah for friends!

      From Ebaum's World S11.gif

      1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of
      boiling water down your throat and presto! The blockage will be almost
      instantly removed.

      2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting
      someone else to hold them while you chop away.

      3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by simply
      using the sink.

      4. High blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a while,
      thus reducing the pressure in your veins.

      5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from
      rolling over and going back to sleep when you hit the snooze button.

      6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be
      afraid to cough.

      7. Have a bad toothache? Hit your thumb with a hammer, then you will forget about the toothache.

      8. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

      9. AND..... Sometimes we just need to remember what The Rules of Life really are: You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

      10. If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You have another chance!

      11. And finally... Be really good to your family and friends. You never know
      when you are going to need them to empty your bedpan.

      Before I start, I'd like to make it clear that this doesn't apply to any of the people of my friends list or any other cool people I've met on this site, pretty much every one of you seems to be cool.

      However, in virtually all other places than RvB, There are tonnes of twats. I've had to resort to stopping playing match made games in Halo 2. Seriously, all the damn Americans who mock the British whenever you join or game, or one of them joins yours, telling you to 'Go back you your own country' even though we are. They pretend like they can do a British accent then do one of the worst Austrailian impressions I've ever head. Then repeated yell 'You British faggots', and 'De-level' as pretty much half of people seem to do. Halo used to be a pretty cool place, but I guess the retarded have scared all the decent people away.

      I'm sure you know the sort who treat 'You Jew' as if its an insult, the sort which can't spell for shit on any computer game. If any of you are on here; Seriously, what the fuck is up with you?

      So, All the decent people who play XBL here, drop you gamertag and we can perhaps have a few games without rascism. smiley8.gif

      Wow, a month without a journal. Quite a bits happened, ill make it short so you dont spend about 60 hours reading it.

      About 4 days ago now I was in Berlin ( thats in Germany for the fools among us), real nice. Saw the Berlin wall, War sights, all that kind of things. I think if everyone spoke English there, it'd be an awesome place.

      Anyone here play Halo 2? In response to Ridik's Journal I thought It might be an idea for some of the people from RvB to get together and have a few games, without all the rasicm. Post your GamerTag if you'd like. Im HellRazorG by the way.

      And finally; A contest!
