      RTX

      3 weeks ago

      since it is RTSQ charity auction it is the beginning of RTX. This marks my 1 year of living in Austin away from Michigan, first time I have health insurance and first paid vacation ever!.


      So it's neat! Only plan for tomorrow is show floor, founding fathers of RT and then Master Pancake Theater at the Ritz of Twister.

      When it Rains it Pours.

      So I got my Corsair 750 back from Corsair after the RMA Request Yesterday. Before I get ready to yank my tower out for the 5th time in 2 months I decide to have some hot chocolate while playing Skyrim MMO.

      Well Dumbass me using the Achievement Hunter Coffee mug for the first time didn't realize how tall the glass is knocked it over. Backwards RIGHT onto my surround sound unit. Panic rush of 10 OZ of milk hot chocolate to spill out of the unit, onto the floor and then flip over to start the surgery process of removing all the milk and sugar. About 5 hours later I get it as clean as I can get it at 8 am and go to sleep. It's still in pieces right now and am about to plug the parts back together just to see if it will boot.

      No blown capacitors, no scorch marks, hopefully it will work.

      Also, if it does work then I'll have to blame the 5+ years of dust buildup that is on the different boards that protected the electronics so they don't blow up.

      If it doesn't work then I've got a trip to Frys to make and get a new 5.2 Sony unit for 200$


      Ohyeah, I also have RTX in 2 weeks so bring on the stress!!! >.<

      So after about 400$ and getting a new motherboard, processor, AND power supply my desktop computer is finally running. Got the mobo and CPU in on Saturday, and it was doing the same things as the other one... okay, only thing left is the power supply.

      Quick trip to frys and I got a cheap 500w power supply. Installed. Stays on longer (and my other motherboard with my video card in PICE 1 runs) but still doesn't make it more than 45 seconds. Decided enough of a headache, dinner and FarCry 4 for a bit.

      Back to it before I fall asleep and decide to read the instruction book. This motherboard has 2 tiny switches so that it can have 2 BIOSes. Some overclocking feature I'll never use and it was set up to fail with bios 1 working but asking for bios 2 to confirm to work. Flip the switch, boots for 15 min before powering down!.

      So plug it all back up together in my rig. It boots to blue screen... make it show me what it's booting to bluescreen without restarting and it's 0X0000007B. Means virus or improper HDD setup. How did I set up the HDD wrong? removed the other drives, changed out the sata cable and same thing. went to bios, dug around and there's an option HOW to boot the hard drives. as Raid. as scsi or IDE. my primary drive is a 1TB IDE HDD, so flipped that switch int he bios. Look at that, I see my desktop now! and it's installing the drivers for my new motherboard.

      I want to sleep but can't let this thing mess me up. have to be up for work in 4 hours....

      The system is down

      2 months ago

      So my rig, which I use to work from home on has an issue where it won't stay on. I've taken it apart piece by piece and I know these things. With only the Power Supply, mobo, processor, memory and video card attached it only stays on for 10 seconds to 6 minutes. Right now I'm in the process of re-applying thermal paste to see if that may be the issue but I've got a suspicion that because it doesn't display or sound an error it's a motherboard problem. Windows thinks it's at fault when it boots so wants to go to safe mode or start up repair. No HDD plugged in and it restarts at the BIOS.

      So also with my numbers the power supply is about 13 months old. The mobo/processor is 5 years 4 months old.

      So either I get the old unit working somehow or I have to spend 300$ for a new mobo/processor. already looking at the i5 4460 and an appropriate motherboard.

        Huh. well this is odd. That part is taken from one of my Community Hunter videos. Right Here. But I don't know who has the rights to the Community Hunter videos. I never acknowledged that they could use the video. But I don't know who has the rights on the Community Hunter channel.

      Happy Valentine's Day dude! Thanks for being a great friend. I'm glad I somehow came across your hotel room post in the forum way back last year. Getting to meet you and Zack, and you helped make RTX a super fun experience. I can't wait to see what will happen at this year's RTX. I'm sure we'll have even more great times!
