My computer is dead.
Fans all spin up but it doesn’t beep and nothing ever appears on the screen.
It’s not the HDs, it’s not the ram, it didn’t make a difference when I changed the CPU back to the single-core and I can’t check with a different graphics card because I do not own one.
I guess that means I’ve gotta replace the motherboard, I want a new computer already…
Reformatted, because, why not. Almost back to normal now.
Still crashes though.
I guess it probably is the CPU itself, but if I want a decent new one, I apparently need a new motherboard and then things seem to get horribly complicated. Oh well. That’s what I get for buying stuff off eBay. Onni I miss you. ._.
Maybe I’ll try and save up pocket change for a new PC and not get a laptop for my birthday. I only want it so I can sit in bed and watch stuff on my desktop and still be on IM at the same time. ;p
I think this PC was around £500 new, without monitor or anything, but that was a good few years ago and bits have been replaced since then. (it only had 1gb ram, graphics card that blew up, single core cpu that’s still in the drawer next to me for if things go horribly wrong) but suppose I’ll start looking into it. Paid extra to get this one put together for me, but I think I can probably manage now, that brings costs down slightly.
I found my powerball! It was in the pile of clean washing. I guess I put it down there and then washing got put on top of it. *spins it happily and watches the pretty lights*
I watched 28 days later with commentary, it was interesting. They made it all with a tiny budget and the empty city bits by pleading with people to stop their cars. I watched half of Dawn of the Dead before getting bored and going to sleep.
Most of the snow and ice has melted, there’s only a little bit of ice left where the sun doesn’t melt it as easily. It was nice while it lasted though.
Final thing. I wanna go polyphasic again, waking up and realising it’s 3pm or whatever is annoying. Maybe I’ll do that after going over to see Tera again, but for now I’m gonna find some breakfast. I HUNGER.
It seems that pulling pictures off of my camera now causes my computer to crash. Gonna run the memtest thing, download a couple of XP discs and start backing shit up. It didn’t start doing this till I got my new CPU, so it’s probably either drivers or hardware related to that. Could just be I installed it wrong? Who knows. I didn’t reformat after installing, so maybe some of the old drivers are still hanging around or something.
I’m pretty sure it’s not overheating anyway.
It’s a weird crash. Everything just… Freezes, nothing responds, mouse doesn’t move, any music that was going stalls. CD drive still goes in and out though. :p
I’ve not had the other crashes I was having for a while, where the comp just went “bip” and rebooted, so at least that’s on my side.
