I tried to get my friends to say something about it but they were lazy. As for what I can see it looks pretty solid, but I haven't looked for any different options yet.

If the RAM's still on sale you might want to consider another set in addition to the one you have now because your motherboard fits that, but its not a huge difference

8 GB is plenty for current gaming and I'm on a bit of a budget, think I'll stick with this for now. The set I got is this (if anyone cares :p).

Not sure if that was in your best interests Kush, unless I'm reading it wrong

Well, I just have copied all the stuff on my SD card that lives in my DS to my computer, so I can upload a picture of the secret base QR code. But in this maze of stuff that doesn't make sense to me, I can't find a dang thing.
Please help

Spoiler: show

Smiling is infectious
you catch it like a flu
when someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too

I passed around the corner
and noticed with a grin
when someone smiled back at me
I'd passed it on to him

I thought about my smile
and realised its worth
a single smile, just like mine
could travel around the earth

So if you feel a smile begin
don't leave in undetected
lets start an epidemic now
and get the world infected

So whenever I start my computer, instead of the Windows 7 startup screen I get something that looks kinda like the Windows XP startup screen, but older. Then the computer just sort of doesn't do anything at all. It will boot im Safe Mode (still with the weird startup screen) and will boot XP (I've got both on my PC) Any ideas what's wrong with it?

Restart it in safe mode. If that doesn't work try doing System Restore in safe mode

I did start it in safe mode. Then I just have a computer in safe mode. I was able to run all my antivirus programs and such, but I think the OS got corrupted somehow.

But once you got it in safe mode, did you try restarting it and starting it normally to see if that fixed it?

Man I'm sorry to hear that Kyro! Unfortunately I can't help you with that, other than Googling around ^^;


As for me last night I got a little bit frustrated concerning my SSD and other disc drive vs. Steam (and other programs similar like Origin and UPlay) and its games. In a perfect world, I would have Steam and the games on my SSD and the save data on my disc drive, optimizing the speed of loading the assets of the games (thanks to SSD's speed) while not "breaking" the SSD's limitations of writes by putting the save files on the normal disc drive... but I realized that it's near impossible to do it in a simple fashion, as the games have different places where to put the save data and I would have to somehow manually put every single save data folder of each game to be placed on the disc drive while not messing up with the game itself still on the SSD. It is just more simple to put everything on the normal disc drive (which I have with Steam) and leave the SSD for Windows... but ugh, it just gives me the feeling that I got an SSD for almost nothing.

Rotom, you'll be happy to know that my computer fixed itself after being moved from my mom's house to my dad's house. Some IT guy just jizzed himself I swear.

I seem to have both a Norton Internet Security purchase and a Norton 360 purchase. Which one should I keep and which one should I try and get the money back on?

There are antiviruses that are both better and free. Avast is a good one. The problem with Norton is much the same as the problem IE faces security wise - it's so ubiquitous, it becomes the target to get around so it's actually kinda piss these days.

Norton is not good because its popular and thus more targeted. This is true of many other things as well lol

Get your money back on both anyway. If you want a paid antivirus, get Kaspersky. If you want a free antivirus, get Microsoft Security Essentials.

Whatever you do, do not get McAfee. It will bother you about shit long after your subscription is over, and in between bother you about renewing every two minutes.

I've found a particular degree of success using both Malwarebytes and ComboFix. Malwarebytes is a pretty fantastic free program and is user friendly, where ComboFix works where Malwarebytes doesn't. ComboFix is very powerful though, and some of the tools in its kit can screw up your computer if you use it beyond a scan. (The scans are the really useful part for most virus-busting though)

Whatever was causing my earlier tech woes seems to have finally kicked the bucket: my computer has refused to turn on all day today. Apologies to those who were looking forward to talking with me on Skype today. =\

Pretty sure it's the PSU. When I turn off the main power switch in the back (the one you ordinarily would always leave in an On position) and then turn it back on, I can hear power attempting to be drawn from the walls for a brief moment followed by silence. Historically when I've flipped the switch, however, my computer has come to life for about three seconds, unbidden, before dying just as suddenly as it came to life. A weird quirk, yes, but a diagnostic one in this case, I believe. If the problem didn't have to do with power, then I would have expected the flipping of the switch to have produced at least some similar signs of life. A fan whirring. A motherboard LED dimly lit. Something. The utter lack of any lights or sounds makes me suspect that power isn't reaching the computer parts. And since even the PSU is lifeless, it seems the likeliest culprit.

The computer couldn't have died at a worse time. I will need to get a replacement PSU pronto.

Double post because hours-apart status update and I see someone lurking the thread who may or may not be readying a reply.

Currently typing to you from my friend's keyboard but my computer. The long and the short of it is, we've fixed nothing and diagnosed nothing but after I brought the computer over to his place, we assembled it, and it failed to turn on, he was occupied by a work-related phone call for a period of thirty minutes. After I tired of waiting (about twenty minutes into it), I stood up, frustratedly went to turn on my computer's power if I could, and this time it worked.

My friend worried it could be that a component shorted out, but it shouldn't be able to turn on period if it's a short, I'd think.

He doesn't seem to think it's the PSU -- no one does but me ^^; orz -- but we're considering our options. One is for me to go home as-is, especially since I don't want to break anything and it is, at least for now, working again. Another option is for me to still go ahead, per my hunch, and remove my old PSU, swapping in a spare one of his. I think that I may still go for this second option simply because of 1) my convictions and 2) my electric bill for January, which I'm convinced was at least in part caused by the dying PSU sucking up gobs of power (which again everyone tells me can't happen, but then explain to me why my electric bill for December was 2.5 times my electric bill for November even though we had a mild December [supra-40 degrees Fahrenheit almost the entire time] and none of my activities were any different between the two months!).
