  6. I happen to have 3 hdd in raid zero runnnig xp. I want to make the switch to windows 7, but i still want the option to have xp so i can play my Mario emulators. I have a spare 750gb hdd that i dont use. I was wondering if i can copy all the information from my raid zero array to this one 750gb hdd and use it from now on as my xp hdd when i want to play Mario and such. I cant find the windows xp cd or key anymore so i think backing up the files and reinstalling xp isn't going to be an option anymore for me. what do you think i should do? I tried calling mircosoft... wont be dont that again anytime soon... thank you for your time, mychal nvm i think i found what im looking for. if you have a freeware recommendation please let me know!

  10. i have a true copper edition and 2 120mm kazi slip stream fans i am looking to possibly get rid of if your interested.
  11. no i left A and B out, stick C was an original from his computer that passed memtest that I put back in. Im starting to think its not the ram because the 3 sticks in the computer have been tested to be working (512mb A, 512mb B and 1gb C from his computer, 1gb D from my computer and 1gb E from my computer)
  12. I was thinking it might be a PSU problem or a MOBO problem. Any possible truth in that? I was gonna head up to frys and buy a new MOBO and PSU for testing purposes though I have no really technical knowlage at this level. (that way I can return whatever doesnt fix my problem) I had this feeling that a CPU was pretty much indestructible as long as i didnt physically brake it or run it to hot. thank you for your reply bty!
  13. Hello OCC, (I posted this before, but I cant seem to find my old post.)_ I have been trying to fix my brothers computer so he'll stop using mine. ha has an HP Pavilion a6000n Desktop PC (RX885AA) http://search.hp.com/query.html?charset=is...&oc=rx885aa It has been a good computer for a few years now up until about 6 months ago when it crashed and would no longer boot on. I told my dad to buy a copy of xp and I would re install the OS so he didn't have to buy a new computer (bad economy for the self employed). I found some compatible drivers on the web and this configuration work for about 2 more months until it crashed again. I told my brother not to watch adult movies on his computer and again reinstalled the OS. the computer keeps crashing into a blue screen or it will just turn off randomly. other members on this forum instructed me to check the HD and RAM. I ran EStool and the HD passed off with no errors I assumed the RAM and he had 512mb drr2 in dimm 0 1gb ddr2 in dim 1 and 512mb in dimm 3. I first removed all the RAM and put 512mb (call this one stick A for short) stick in dimm 0 and tried to boot the computer on. The computer did not boot, but the motherboard gave a series of long beeps. So i removed stick A and replaced it with the other 512mb stick (stick B), the computer booted on and I started mem test. about ten minutes later the computer turned itself off. I removed stick B and Put in the 1gb stick © and rebooted the computer ran mem test and it passed though mem test without any errors. Thinking I had solved the problem I took two working sticks of ram from my computer and put them in DIMM 0 (D) and 2 (E) again the computer would not boot, it just gave a series of long beeps I then put D in dimm 0 and E in dimm 1 and the computer booted, i didn't wait to run mem test, I just turned the computer back off and put stick C into dimm 2, Filling dimm 0-2 with 1gb sticks and booted the computer. The computer ran mem test for about 70% of the test and the computer again just powered down. what do you think I should do from here? Thank you for your time and please enjoy your day. Mychal
