  1. I stand corrected. If I remove all cords from the computer's outside (but nothing from inside) and remove the CMOS battery for a while, and then plug just the keyboard, monitor, power, and CMOS back in, everything will work fine, and I can connect everything else after I'm in windows. It may be taking a few steps more than I need, but I know if I just leave everything connected and turn off the computer, then turn it back on, it freezes at the 'press del to enter setup' screen until I do all of the above. I'm pretty sure my motherboard's giving out on me. *sigh*
  2. &%#%$!!! Bleh, just when I had it working again... I installed the drivers for my motherboard, my video card, and my mouse. I then reset the computer, and it continued to work fine. I let it sit overnight, while it apparently downloaded and installed the automatic Windows updates. I came back the next morning to find it frozen at the boot splash screen (The one with the 'press del to enter setup') I held the power button to turn the computer off. Pressing the button quickly did nothing. Turned the computer back on. It was still frozen. Freezes at the 'press del to enter setup' scree
  3. Success! (I hope...) I realized just about an hour ago that I had a virtual hard drive stored on my machine, with the same Windows Professional CD Key installation. I booted up Ubuntu Linux off the CD I made (I'm liking that thing more and more all the time now) and grabbed that .vhd file. Then I stored it onto the machine I'm using right now (My brother's) and installed Virtual PC onto my brother's machine. I ran my virtual disk off of that, and was able to use a CD Key retrieval program (Only works while you're in the Windows you're getting the CD Key from -- seems almost useless in most ap
  4. That Ubuntu Linux worked... but only under a safe-boot mode. :/ Anyway, I did manage to retrieve and backup my important files onto another hard drive, which I am now in the process of writing onto a CD for safer keeping. However, I was unable to retrieve my Windows CD key from the NTuser.dat file by the method I was trying to. (It gave me something that looked like a CD Key, but I didn't recognize it as the one I've entered multiple times [i've memorized at least the first 5 characters] and when I tried to enter the key upon installing Windows onto the blank partition, it said it was invali
  5. After looking through everything a little better... It seems my boot.ini file is COMPLETELY MISSING. I can't locate it in the c:\ root directory (Somehow my Windows partition has moved itself back to c:\) with a dir command. Trying to do an "attrib -h c:\\boot.ini" or a "attrib -h boot.ini" while in the c:\> prompt tells me it can't find the file. Trying to run a "bootcfg /rebuild" command--gives me an error within the console about being unable to complete the command or something, after the options portion of the first time I attempt to use the command. It gives me a buffer overrun BSO
  6. I just came home from college. Brought my computer. It was working perfectly fine about an hour before packing up for home. The computer rode home with me in the front of the car, as it didn't fit anywhere else. When I got it all plugged up at home, it gave me an error: "ntldr is missing" assumedly after running the POST. I tried using the solution [link=http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000465.htm]here[/link] under "Windows XP users" involving copying the broken files from the Windows XP CD. (With changes to my appropriate drive letters, of course.) My computer is formatted into three p

    Nintendo Wii

    Err.... 25 hours in front of Super Target... in weather that didn't once get above 33 degrees Farenheit, with wind and snow through the night. For a Wii... for my little brothers for Christmas... I'm crazy, I know. Edit: This was from 7:00 AM on Saturday the 16th, to 8:00 AM on Sunday the 17th. Third launch of the consoles at that store, and our family's last sure chance of getting the console for Christmas. Here's to hoping it was worth it, and hoping I score enough brownie points with the siblings to ensure I get a good deal of use out of the Wii before I ship back to college.
  8. 4 WU completed thus far, on my single rig... that I often use for gaming. And if all goes well, I should be finishing my fifth some time tonight or tomorrow morning.
  9. I calculated... if I ran my computer nonstop, I'd do about one workunit per two days... (The x/400 thing is one workunit for the 400, right?)... but I don't plan to be going that hard on my new equipment, so it'll probably be more like one WU per week or two.
  10. If this song isn't a testament to this site's longstanding tradition of quality, I don't know what is. The very first remix ever posted here, and still one of my favorites. Very nice beat to jam/headbob/DJP along to. Quite a lot of panning effects, so your ears don't get bored listening to it. It's techno style, and yet it still sounds distinctly ninja-chinese.
  11. Very good jazzy style remix of an old good song. Even if this particular track's been more or less beat to death, I'm still liking this remix. (Yes.. Posting this here mostly because there's gotta be a nice review on the page for a nice song. ) Anyway, a few posts ago, I made a serious error: That's not from FF9, that's the Chrono Trigger main theme at about 2:58. And I'd hardly call it ABRUPT. I thought mv mixed it quite well with the Zeal theme. Having gone through and downloaded all of the 1-1250 remixes offered over bittorrent, I can safely say my problem was similar to that skipp
  12. Very good ambience type music, smooth sounding, got that nice jazzy feel. My only question is, though... is anyone else reminded of that one Carpenters song (I can't remember the title) when the sax comes in at 1:07?
  13. Way to astound us with yet another awesome remix, DJP. I guess I must not have a very trained ear for this sort of stuff, because I can't seem to find any glaring flaws with your voice. The echo effects no doubt serve to tone down whatever flaws might be there. All in all, I say you should cultivate this talent you have for singing, regardless of what some woman said about your voice. It seems to me, with practice, you'd make an excellent singer. Funny thing, before I listened to this song - and even a while after listening to it - I had assumed you were a girl, because of your avatar. Crazy
  14. How about... do you got anything to blackmail him with? If not, then find something logical that you could potentially blackmail him with.
