Maybe it's not alive...
Ok. After installing the latest BF2142 patch from ea.com, I decided it was time to get my music from my old rig and put it on the new one on my sig. Since I only have one monitor, I had to shutdown the new one, and unplug it ect. to get the old rig in.
So, I got on my old rig, and transferred all of my old songs to the mobile HDD my mom let me burrow. No problem.
After that, I plugged my new rig back in, flipped the power switch on the back, turned on the button, and it booted. But, when Windows pops up, you see the scrolling bar at the beginning stop after about 5 sec. Then, nothing happens. The system just idles, frozen.
I tried restarting and doing a system restore, but that scroll bar will still pop up and freeze when it restarts. I tried safemode, and that does work. But I wouldn't know how to fix anything while in safe mode. And you can't do anything in safe mode anyway.
I don't know what caused this problem. All I know is that the most recent thing I've done was install the BF2142 patch, and that's just because I had to do it.
The BIOS does work, however. CPU temps float around 30c when not under heavy load, so that's fine. If you need me to do anything in the BIOS, I'd recommend you give detailed instructions, as I have never really used BIOS until now, and I know little about it.
If I can't figure out something today, I may end up hauling this $1,500 worth of stuff I can't use to a shop and let them look at it...
