Re: Freezing, BSODing, and other wierd stuff

Well, I can't flash the bios because the computer won't fully boot. And none of the hardware drivers were installed prior to this happening since It started on the second boot.

Re: Freezing, BSODing, and other wierd stuff

Bump

if you guys don't know what the problem is, do you think I should call windows 7 support? but it seems kind of hardware related.

Any help is appreciated
Thanks

Re: New rig - help needed

Personally I'd skip the water cooling and just get a nice air cooler. This one would work well for you if you can lap it.

Re: HELP ME!!! Is this a good and Compatible Build????!

An aftermarket heatsink is not necessary if your only gonna push that phenom .2 GHz. If your looking to do some heavy OCing then it would be a good idea.

Re: Need advice on buying a new PC

No reason to get the voodoo, if you must get a prebuilt I would recommend cyberpower or ibuypower.

But it is MUCH better to build a computer yourself. Cheaper and higher quality.

Take a look...

Re: Building New PC for Game Design & Gaming

Good catch with the RAM farinha, I don't know what I was thinking.

If you drop the video card to something like a 285 or a 4890 you could get the i7 without going over budget. It's your decision.

Re: $300 build

Thanks! that looks a lot better then what I found. Tiny nitpick, I chose the single 2GB stick so it wouldn't have to be replaced when my relative is ready to upgrade. Will the two sticks run faster...

Re: Core i5 750 Review

Will anything actually be able to use the 6 cores of the i9? I didn't think there was that much that used four cores right now.

Re: Buy or build?

If you're not going to SLI, what GPU are you going with? I would get either 1 285 for future upgrade potential or get a 295.

Re: First build...help!

I bet it's a RAM thing. Make sure your sticks are in the right slots. Check you're motherboard manual. Happened to me on my first build.

Re: Bing Versus Google

I assume they meant the internet explorer that comes with vista. I didn't hear any details, just that someone didn't like bing because of that. Now I have to tell them it's false.

Re: Bing Versus Google

I haven't experienced this personally, but I heard that in Vista Explorer if you type in google in the url without .com then you get bing. That seems pretty sleazy to me :p
