    Hey guys, havnt been on here for a long time! Been so busy with uni hehe. Anyways, I've got a few things for sale now, reason for selling is that I was given a new computer from my parents, so may as well get rid of this stuff now. Got this stuff new a while ago, all work perfectly and have full retail boxes. I live in Australia, but I will post prices in US dollars since most of you are from the US. Heres whats for sale: Sparkle 7800GTX 256mb PCI-E - $170 Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music - $60 SOLD Corsair 2Gb (2 x 1gb) DDR TWINX2048-3200C2PRO - $160 AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Manchester 2.2GHz Socket 939 Dual Core Processor - $140 SOLD Also have a few hard drives which I no longer need/use: Seagate 200gb SATA 8mb cache (not NCQ) - $40 each (Have 4 of these) SOLD Seagate 300gb SATA 8mb cache (NCQ) - $60 each (Have 2 of these) SOLD All prices are negotiable and include shipping (note: The shipping prices are assumed that you live in the US, if you are closer PM me and I can get you a better price).

    Some Stuff Here For Sale

    Ah sorry, yeh all 4 200s are available and so is the CPU. Deleting some old PMs now hehe.
  3. Topic says it all, is there anyway to disable to OS boot select screen on startup? I only have one OS installed but for whatever reason it thinks theres 2 and on startup it has the menu which tells me to select one. This slows boot time and its very annoying, does anyone know how to get rid of it? I got rid of it once before on an older PC through its BIOS, Ive messed with my BIOS settings but cant seem to find which option it was. Thanks for any help
  4. Mine looks like this: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=signature(941f941f)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] signature(941f941f)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn I assume I should change it to: [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn I just deleted the second last line and changed default= which makes it look like yours.... just double checking before I actually do it
  5. I have an antec 380watt truepower and its lasted for a good while now, but I think Im putting too bigger load on it. As it is im running 4 hard drives, 2 dvd/cd drives, heaps of fans and lights. However as it is, it is struggling and I want to add more hard drives which will make it even worse. I think the connector on my mobo is 20 pin plus the 4 pin aux connector. However when I look at some PSUs for sale, they only have a single 24 pin plug? Im assuming this will NOT be compatible with my mobo. I want to buy a new power supply that fits my pc and still allows for future upgradability, so what type of power supply should I buy? If I buy a 20 pin + 4 pin PSU, will it still work with the newer motherboards that accept a single 24 pin connector? I dont want to be having to use adapters. Thanks for any help as Im a pretty confused, and if Im going to spend money now, I may as well make it last a while! EDIT: I think I found what I might be looking for. This following psu states that it has a 24 pin connector with DETATCHABLE 4 pin connector for universal motherboard compatability. http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=22550 What do you guys think?

    Hard Drive Randomly Dissappearing

    will do edit: strangely enough, it hasnt done it since my last post. Sounds good, but the problem is, if it does it again at the wrong time, I'm screwed
  8. Recently, when I am just browsing internet sites/using IM programs, one of my 200gb hard drives is randomly dissappearing from both my computer and disk managment. Its almost as though someone has come and pulled the sata plug out of it in the middle everything. I am thinking its a power issue? I am running a 380 watt antec true power, 4 hard drives (3 x 200gb and 1 x 120gb), 2 x cd/dvd burners, a fair few case fans and some lights. Its strange though because I havnt actually done any modifications to my comp, which has me puzzled. Maybe the hard drive is crapping out on me... dang western digital, its the second time! Anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?

    Occ Memmories....

    Too long ago to remember why I joined, but I think its cause I needed advise on what video card to buy. Shortly after I was the proud owner of a radeon 9000 pro

    A Sound Card Does Make A Difference

    lol? Some onboard sound actually is very good quality. Others, ie, AC97, are not so good quality.

    Sata Raid Sillyness.

    Why did you try make a raid partition when theres still data on the drives?? Im sure you can recover most of the data, but Im not sure if making a new raided partition effects it at all. One program I used to recover data from a drive with a corrupted file system is GetDataBack for NTFS. Good luck

    Favorite Actors

    Fav actress would definately be Drew Barrymore, closely followed by Christina Ricci and Kat Dennings. There are heaps of good actors, like Adam Sandler, Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackson, Rob Schneider, Damon Wayans, John Travolta etc.
  18. So how much do you have? Personally I have 720gb total, but some people out there have insane amounts of HDD space. Post away
  19. You must have been putting off those upgrades for a fair few years if your upgrading from a pentium 3! The real question though here is "Why wouldnt it work?" Seriously, Mobo with PCI slot free + PCI video card = Works

    Burning Fat!

    Heres an idea, dont snack, ever. 3 meals a day, healthy ones. HAVE BREAKFAST! Cant stress that enough, they;re serious when they say its the most important meal of the day, it also gets your metabolism going so it will burn fats faster when you eat lunch etc. Pushups and situps are all good. A little running cant hurt either. You seriously DONT have to do that much exercise though to lose weight, you can do it purely by eating habits. Or theres my favourite, play so many hours of pc games that your just dont eat! Ive lost weight that way, and my dad was like "Brent how the heck do you lose weight from playing the computer all day?" Getting buff on the other hand requires a lot of workout, and is very different from merely losing weight! I'm not buff at all, but Im not fat, cbf even trying to get buff

    How Do You Pronounce Video Card Names?

    I also say sixty-eight hundred. But I have come across people that once said "Five thousand nine hundred and fifty" when referring to a geforce fx 5950. *sigh*
