#1252437 Windows loading problems

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 02 May 2006 - 01:24 PM in Processors, Motherboards and Memory

About time for me to plug some freeware for you to use to test hd's.
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Burn the disk and set it to boot (that) CD 1'st and boot up.
navigate with spacebar to menu of chioce.
(and I know it has 2 versions of wd utilities on it. )

UBcd has MOST HD manuf'rs diagnostic software on it and its pretty much what I would most likely use to test a hd. *(no more booting off a floppy to test a HD like in the old days....)



#1252290 Windows loading problems

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 02 May 2006 - 11:14 AM in Processors, Motherboards and Memory

Check routing and or replace SATA cable. (I would just replace them with some heavy duty ones.)
Change Sata Port *(change in bios also if necessary.)

Check install routines / install guides and make sure you have everything installed as recommended.
*(More importantly, find what no to install.)

Research error messages on web to find likely component issues / culprits.


Sounds like yout MBR is possibly corrupted or damaged and may call for a repair or reinstall.



#1252225 KRAJAN AUDIO WILL NOT WORK HELP meeeeeeeee!!!

I note you list a copy of sp-1 xp windows ?

As per above link, you need SP-2 or you will have nothing but problems.

Slipstreaming is an option and directions on how to do it are on the webpage here.



#1252216 Enermax Liberty 12 V Rail reading 12.33, is this a problem?

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 02 May 2006 - 10:08 AM in Processors, Motherboards and Memory

MBM5 isnt 100% accurate... I don't think the BIOS is completely accurate either. The only way to be absolutely sure of your rails is to use a multimeter.

<---Quoted for truth.

Head to wal mart or any automitive supply and pick up a digital multimeter.
A cheap one is 15 bucks a good one is 40+ but the cheap ones work just fine.

Test the rails with the DMM and then +.- the reading and adjust mbm5 accordingly to get your onboard sensors as close to correct as you can.



#1252093 A lone voice from the wilderness...

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 02 May 2006 - 08:16 AM in OCC Member's Lounge

I see his point and yes the ability to look at multiple viewpoints and draw your own answers is a skill that more should use more-often. Myself included.

With the advent of the web and blogoshpere, mainstream press is pretty much dead anyway. I mean, we arent spoon fed (what to hear, think, see) from CBS NBC ABC evening news anchors as we once were in the dark days before cable.

One for Richard for not resting on his laurels.



#1252073 Passive Cooling on the Northbridge? Possible?

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 02 May 2006 - 07:56 AM in Overclocking and Cooling

Funny, both links are the same, I figured cronocrash had posted a different link as I did not first click it.

Good thread also. "clean and replace stock TIM on NF4"
http://www.dfi-stree...ead.php?t=20827

BOL with it.



#1252068 Passive Cooling on the Northbridge? Possible?

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 02 May 2006 - 07:48 AM in Overclocking and Cooling

http://www.dfi-stree...77&page=1&pp=15

Give this thread a read. Others have made passive NB coolers.

Some of the pics are gone on the thread, but if you read it you will see some creative solutions.

*(if you just have to have passive NB cooling, otherwise I would just pick the one on this webpage that A_G is reccomending currently.)

#1246541 see how u die...

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 27 April 2006 - 07:39 AM in OCC Member's Lounge

"While driving, you fail to immediately pull over for speeding when signalled by the cop car behind you. While stopped, you attempt to open your glove compartment, and the rookie cop nervously opens fire on you. You are struck several times and die on the scene"

That was pretty funny.

That almost happend to me with a state trooper some 20 years ago.



#1246518 Death, Deception, and the $4 Million Cobra

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 27 April 2006 - 07:26 AM in OCC Member's Lounge

Wow, I missed this when it happend.
Interesting story.
If I had all the mustangs I had when I was a kid they would be worth 200k or so.
*(I have owned a lot of them)

If rounmors are coprrect in the postscript, at least it goes to the shelby musem. Can't think of a better place for it.



#1246128 Is anyone offended or complaining about Angry's avatar?

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 26 April 2006 - 08:35 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

I have to give props to Oceanseasforme for owning up to his vote to an audience of opposing opinions. The question was put out there and, with a community this large, of course there are going to be at least some yeses mixed with the no's. I'm also glad to see that he wasn't excessively flamed for owning up to it. I hope that level of maturity continues.

@Angry. I'm with most of the other people here. I don't think you should remove your avatar just because Oceanseas gave his reason and it happened to be political. The line between reasonable and unreasonable varies from person to person and community to community. I think your avatar was reasonable as far as this community is concerned, and I also feel that Oceanseas' opinion and the way he expressed it was likewise reasonable. He said he is able to get on with it, so respect that and each of you go about your normal business. For those who are not able to get on with it, I think they fall on the unreasonable side of this community's line, and it should then be up to them to either thicken their skin, or find another community where their inability to get on with it is found to be reasonable.

But, of course, this is just my opinion.


You sir rate an answer and I will give you A_G's words from another thread that relates to this one.
http://www.dfi-stree...81&postcount=24

I respect A_G and this site and for that reason I answer you and do not reply to the rest of the thread as I consider it counterproductive to what DFI is about.

Had some nice PM's with A_G and their is no animosity between us.


Now the rest of you gentelmen and ladies, please let this thread fall into oblivion.



#1245855 Doing my part for energy conservation (merged environmental threads)

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 26 April 2006 - 04:57 PM in OCC Member's Lounge

Wow ER, post 104 was awesome and a gem among calcite.

Or as I like to say.
Sheeple will take what they are fed.

Self determination and education offer the best hope for the future.

#1245124 Dance Monkey, Dance!

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 26 April 2006 - 07:48 AM in OCC Member's Lounge

nice. I enjoyed that.



#1245115 Is anyone offended or complaining about Angry's avatar?

Posted by OceanSeasforMe on 26 April 2006 - 07:39 AM in OCC Member's Lounge

the poll isn't political...it is simply asking who thinks the avatar is offensive

I think i might close this thread and make a new one where the poll is public so everyone can see who votes what lol...i see 6 votes saying its offensive but no one has owned up to it but one who says they voted yes accidentally...


Ok, I will own up to my vote.

I voted it as offensive for political reasons.

I will say this though, this is the first time I have ever spoken about your avatar.
(I was not one of the people you mentioned as complaining. I just sucked it up and went on with it.)

Plus I dont like hockey, so its a double no for me.
