So. As of yesterday I'm in the posession of an overly priced paperweight. I experienced problems with XP crashing, a long time after I had gotten the OC stable as a rock (or at least me and Orthos thought), so I decided to clock it (Q6600) down from 3,375GHz to 3.0GHz, and setting the voltage to auto for the time being, and see how it would go down. And in fact, it went down, in the sense that it decided to never wake up again. Now, the PC POST's and everything seems fine, until it's trying to load Windows, then black (or a darker shade of gray). So I went to bed, being
ed off like a MF, and thought I would try again today. And indeed I did. Now, the first thing I could think of, was to try to reload BIOS defaults, and just try to see if it would boot up normally, but no. And then, I went to download a new BIOS for my mobo, flashed with the new one, and still, nothing happened. Then, after taking a more thorough look in the BIOS, it catched my eye that the Samsung 250gig S-ATA-drive Windows is on, did not list as being on the top of the Harddrive-list (this is me trying to think logically when I'm
ed and depressed at the same time, even though I hadn't got a NTLRD missing-message). So I fix this, just for the desperate attempt of it, and still nothing.
So now I turn to you, fellow addicts of that little box of joys and horrors, to get your opinion on this dreadful matter? What am I supposed to do? Just throw it out for the stray dogs to play with? Read a book? Spend quality time with my lady? PLEASE, HELP ME, I'M SUFFOCATING!
Okay, enough of the melodrama. Any advice would be nice though.
Btw, I updated the BIOS for 0802 to 1001. See signature for specs.
