    The last thing I saw was a BSOD...

    Update! So I transferred everything I cared about to an external hard drive, but not through Ubuntu. I tried to update it, which required a restart and once I turned the computer off, Ubuntu wouldn't boot or install again. I ended up using an undeleting program on my external drive, because I...

    The last thing I saw was a BSOD...

    Hey Ian! From the Ubuntu terminal, I was able to get some error messages about how it couldn't get into the drive, so I decided to install Ubuntu on my media drive, however I noticed that the installer allowed me to pick out and allocate 127GB of unallocated space on the problem drive, so I...

    The last thing I saw was a BSOD...

    Hey guys, I sure haven't been here for a while. Anyway, basically what happened is I was launching Starcraft 2, and then I got bluescreened. It was extremely short, too. The blue screen probably was there for about one second, nonetheless not long enough for me to snatch any codes from it...

    SOLVED 64 bit or 32 bit with my system?

    No, don't bother keeping your update files. Windows will automatically download the appropriate ones and I'm pretty sure the x86 updates are different than the x64 ones. As for your RAM, I really wouldn't worry about reliability. RAM is RAM. Get what you can afford. Just make sure you don't...

    0x000000e: A True Story

    I'm bumping this because I don't think anyone has seen it. I've Googled for answers, but that hasn't worked.

    0x000000e: A True Story

    Okay, here's the update. I've managed to install Windows 7 Ultimate x86 on the 64GB partition that XP was on, but the 337GB main partition is corrupted. I ran a checkdisk and I'm going to run another, but I can't even browse it in explorer. I get the following message. Where do I go from...

    0x000000e: A True Story

    GUYS! I managed to get Windows to attempt to install, and it got through all of the stages except "Completing Installation", where it told me that the directory "C:/boot" was corrupted. SADNESS! However, once I closed that window and went to startup repair, it told me that it discovered a...

    0x000000e: A True Story

    Yes, I set it as the first boot device, but no, I used the default Ubuntu 9.10 DVD/CD burner at the time. I'm going to retry it now with the Apple Leopard default burner because that one verifies and I'm sure is works. While that's burning, I'm going to try "bootrec.exe /rebuildBCD". It...

    0x000000e: A True Story

    Okay, the Windows 7 DVD burned, but didn't boot. Along with three others that I tried. I checked the files inside and they seemed fine. I also found a guy who had made a Windows 7 x64 recovery iso (OMGYAY!), but I burned that and it didn't boot either. I also managed to install Ubuntu and...

    0x000000e: A True Story

    Hey guys, I just took out the RAM and put it back in and it's now telling me that it simply doesn't have a boot record. This is good. I'm burning a new Windows 7 DVD at the moment, so we'll see where we are after doing startup repair and bootrec.exe commands.

    0x000000e: A True Story

    No, I can't get into Windows. Sorry I didn't mention that. That's why I tried to install a copy of W7 onto a smaller partition. I'll try resetting my RAM sticks- which drivers exactly would I need to update?

    0x000000e A True Story Written and edited by BetaMan Prologue Alright, so I've got Ubuntu, XP, and W7 all installed and the Ubuntu grub loader is the king of all of them. Well, was. A few days ago, I was trying to delete the Ubuntu partition to free up space since I never use it. I...

    Being mean to hardware: Overclocking the 9400GT

    Well I'm overclocking my GPU, not my CPU. I just got a brand new heatsink so I applied fresh paste when I put it on.

    @Nibiru2012: The LEDs in the picture are REALLY bright compared to what they normally are. And thanks! @Veedaz: I have RivaTuner, I suppose I'll try it. And I'll get SpeedFan. Thanks fellows!
