Thanks for the replies but, having tried everything else, I was forced to do a factory image restore. Now the factory restore has caused more problems than I anticipated, but at least I can use the machine again. I was dreading having to wipe out that particular machine because I had literally hundr...

One of the latest patches causes this under certain configurations of hardware and also spy ware/security software... If you can get into SAFE MODE (press F8 before the coloured square appears), try rolling the system back to a previous restore point, or uninstall the last 6 or 7 patches... What vi...

Vista Black Screen Of Death

I have Vista installed on a computer that I normally have running 24/7. The power went out for a few minutes the other night, and when the computer restarted, I logged in as was greeted with only a black screen and a mouse cursor. I can CTRL+ALT+DEL to get to the screen where you can change users, s...

why would that be late? the units are there and waiting, any unit that is being done counts... Is it OK to post an occasional [email protected] team recruiting message on other sections of the forum, such as general, recommendations and tech support? EDIT: By the way, where did all of my avatars go? I needed to ...

It's good to have you back! I have recently started folding again as well, mainly just out of curiosity to test out various GPU's that I have and see what I can squeeze out of them. Until recently, the last WU that I turned in was in 2008! I was surprised to see that I wasn't at the bottom of the ra...

Water Cooling Advice Needed

I would love to put a Corsair Hydro H50 in a new HTPC case that I purchased, but unfortunately I don't think it will fit. The radiator sticks out on both sides of the 120mm fan mount by about 1/2", and there's just not that much real estate left around the fan for it. So, I'm going to make my own se...

Looking to upgrade HP Slimline

Before anyone says it, yes I know it's almost pointless to upgrade a 2 year old HP Slimline. But, I like this little Slimline and I have fun seeing what all I can cram into it. This is what it came with: Sempron LE-1250 2.2Ghz 3GB DDR-2 Onboard Video CoolerMaster CPU Heatsink w/80mm Fan 200W TFX Pow...
