  1. UncleDavid218,


    I am very impressed on your modding and overall job done well on that computer.


    After having built my "extreme" (which isnt so extreme anymore), im beginning to get sucked into that warp hole of wanting to make a new computer again. How ever downfall on my side is i dont have any money to spare, or a job... I plan on working on an xmas tree farm to make some cold cash & tips... possibly get a jumpstart on a new rig.


    Although my dad may not be pleased with my idea, im going to have to do it! Computers are just too much fun to mod! Hey, have you ever heard about soundx98's screen mod? You should definately do that if your looking for that extra BAM! Im thinking ill go all-out on my new computer (when i can afford it).


    Gonna have to go for an 8800 GTX (when i can afford it... mostlikely when the moon goes over the mountain.)



  2. Although I havent been here in quite a while, you guys were the ones that helped me with all my problems with my rig when i needed help. So im here on my birthday to say thanks again so much!


    Im probably going to get a new processor soon, hopefully later tonight cuz its my BIRTHDAY!!!!


    soundx98, AceGoober, Happy_Games... everyone else... thanks!



  3. Long time, havent talked here in a while... happy to mention as far as everrything else, my SLI-DR rig has been running fast, and smooth.


    My logitech quickcam express works on my other computer, but when i plug it into my SLI-DR rig, i installed my software / drivers ect the same exact as the other computer, and my quickcam wont display picture.


    please help me, idk whats the problem here.

    EDIT: by the way, ive tried many other USB ports on my computer and still no go.


    my ipod nano connects successfully to the USB, so why doesnt my webcam work?


    - ive called logitech too and they are baffled... so its got to be somewhere in manfacture side.

  4. anyone got any other possible solutions for me?


    i am dying to get my computer up and running, and this is the last problem i have with hardware because everything else works.


    someone help me fix this problem.


    With soundcard inserted: Computer freezes at beginning of bootup (when it normally would show the DFI logo)


    Without soundcard inserted: Computer boots up fast and normal. No problems

  5. i have a Saitek Eclipse USB keyboard, and a Logitec MX518 USB mouse (w/ PS/2 adapter).


    should i go into bios when im using my OLD PS/2 mouse and keyboard, and set in the bios to enable the use of a USB Keyboard? is it needed for me to enable it in the bios in order for me to use it?


    i will be using my MX518 mouse with the PS/2 adapter, so i dont think i will have any opposable problems?

  6. Hey! I am not sure if you DFI'ers remember me, but during the summer i was quite active. Haha i kind of stopped talking here because i had to go back to school... its a friday night... if youve read my other topics, i had burnt out something in my case... my board got fried, and the whole 9.5 yards. :cat:


    well, i rmaed my board and got a replacement, and my dad finally got newegg to accept my CPU to be RMAed, so i turn out with the better deal in the end.


    last night i finally recieved my new CPU, tonight i decided to give it a go.

    i started off slow adding things one by one. happily did my computer turn on!


    Well all went well... i DID have problems with my USB Saitek Eclipse keyboard, and possibly my MX518 mouse (w/ adapter)... but lets say those arent the biggies.


    My problem is: Some reason, my computer will NOT boot with my Sound Card inserted in PCI Slot #2 (closest to bottom). IF However i do insert my Sound Card in PCI Slot #1, my computer will boot, but then restart randomly in windows.


    I am here to ask you fellow DFI members to help me cure this itch. It would be much appreciated by me.


    I have 2 PCI slots in my board... and BOTH will be used. I have my Linksys Wireless, and my Soundblaster Live! 5.1 sound card... Also this is my first time experiencing use with my Onboard sound too, i thought ide get use of it.


    Soo... i know others have been able to successfully use the Onboard, and another seperate sound card, so what can i do to solve this? I am not quite sure what is happening.


    Thanks a bunch, fast replys are greatly appreciated,

    Tom (Hymn)

  7. i have the SAME EXACT PROBLEM.. except mine is more in depth of a problem...

    SLI-DR, Venice 3000+ (not sure if its dead), OCZ Gold Series Dual Channel 1 GB, eVGA gForce 6800GT.
