Re: PC problems thread

Bad news: looks like the HD is indeed dead. :sad:
I guess that could have been the problem to begin with, but a new PSU doesn't hurt.

Re: PC problems thread

I guess I should have three discs: one for the OS (SSD), one for the video files and one biiig one for all the games.

Re: PC problems thread

No, the BIOS does not detect the HDD at all. I read some sources and fear that it may have been fried - I hope not since this is my backup disc. I'll take it to the tech guy at work tomorrow and see if there is life in it. Regardless, I noticed that it was made in 2010 and should probably invest in ...

Re: PC problems thread

The HDD is not working. It's not the SATA or power cable ... what else could it be? :scared: It's really weird ... looks like a possible problem with SATA slots on the motherboard, because if I try to move the SATA cable going to the main HDD (with the OS), the PC won't even boot up. It just starts ...

Re: PC problems thread

Aaaargh... if it's not one thing, it's the other. Got my PSU today and installed it. Seems to be working fine except that one of the HDDs isn't detected by the system. Coincidentally the one all my games are on. :sad:

Guess I have to check all the cables and see what's going on ...

Re: PC problems thread

They keep pushing back the availability dates for the above-mentioned PSU ... maybe I'll buy this one instead since that's in stock right now?

Re: PC problems thread

Yeah I don't have another PC so I'll have to do the latter. I'll buy the PSU and see what happens. As we know, it never hurts to have more powah. :D

Re: PC problems thread

But the GPU is basically new and of great quality so it shouldn't have a problem running these games. Even if there was a problem, why would the whole PC shut down - why wouldn't the screen just go blank or something?

Re: PC problems thread

Yeah, definitely ... the PC still shuts down and restarts. Tried Witcher 2 now and it was good for a while, then suddenly ... everything is off. Must be a power problem, surely?

Re: PC problems thread

I upgraded the driver via the manufacturer's site (not Windows, since it said that the driver was up to date). As for Witcher 1, I just finished playing it on my laptop. Waiting for the PSU now - it's not in stock in the shops, so I'll wait until they have it and then buy. Just gotta double check th...

Re: The Witcher series

Finished Witcher 1; have I mentioned how much I like the conclusion to the final boss fight ? There he is, the big villain, about to get slain and as he knocks away my steel sword I simply draw the silver one to finish him off, and he says: "That sword is for monsters!" Yeah, exactly. :-D ...

Re: PC problems thread

Had a really big crash yesterday; while playing The Witcher 1, the game crashed to desktop and the PC wouldn't send images to the monitor after this, giving the simple "VGA no signal" message instead. I had to reset the BIOS and really build it back up step by step ... It happened during a...

Re: The Witcher series

I've started Witcher 1 again, I'm about 3/4 through it now. Then doing the second one, then another round at number 3. Think I can get them all done over the summer? ;)

Re: In Memoriam...

Batman just died. Imdb.com: Adam West, TV’s ‘Batman,’ Dies at 88 I used to watch that show as a kid and I thought it was kind of exciting. Now I feel the Tim Burton reboots into a much darker universe are preferrable, but as a nice introduction for very young kids, the original show was quite nice.

Re: Help on Kalah's map - Land of Arylia

10, 20, I don't remember. Early 2000s, I guess, must have been after 2001 and before 2007. That first map is too open and not very good; "Hero wanted" is better.

That was the first map I made, over 10 years ago, so I don't remember.

I can beat that. We've had 29ºC here in my town, but at the same time we had snow in the north of the country. Awesome, huh? :-D

Re: Computer Upgrade Tips

Got the new sound card and after some trouble installing it (the mobo somehow didn't see it in the slot), it suddenly started working. Conclusion: it hasn't fixed the problem completely. While the sound is fine through headphones, and the whizzing sound is not as loud as before, it is still there. S...
