Nerd Test version 2.0:

From this time forward, you'll hold the title:
Kinda Dorky High Nerd

And the first nerd test:

Overall, you scored as follows:

19% scored higher (more nerdy),
1% scored the same, and
80% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

High-Level Nerd. You are definitely MIT material, apply now!!!.
-----------

I dunno about that...

you can not recycle your memory.

Either way, I also have to get a new PSU...

What about AMD? I usually went with them since they "weren't Intel", though I understand the Core series is apparently the best deal now...

On the other hand, I see a newegg combo for:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Toledo 2.2GHz Socket 939 Processor OEM

BIOSTAR GEFORCE 6100-M9 939 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

in a combo deal for about $132... if I wanted to effectively bump my system up just a bit...

throw in a new power supply and voila... (provided the memory's not shot).

Well, looks like the mobo/CPU is gone. Replaced PSU, removed everything but CPU and memory (no onboard video) no beeping with the memory installed or removed....

I'll have to (slowly) piece together a new system... hopefully can throw the hard drive in there to avoid reinstalling..

EDIT: My motherboard's a 939-socket AMD based one anyway, so might as well move up to Intel Core 2 or AM2(?) -based systems... any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Hey guys... motherboard and/or cpu bit the dust. Normally the mobo (with CPU only installed) would beep through the PC speaker if there were no memory... but no beans. So, I'll have to slowly piece together a new PC.

Could be the video card.

I certainly hope not.

Make sure some crazy way it did not get unseated from the AGP/PCIx slot.

Nah, I don't slam my system around.

Or maybe it just died.

I certainly hope not.

Got on board video you can try? Another video card?

No on both counts...

It's not the monitor. I've got it attached to the KVM between the PC and Power Mac.... working fine on that front. The PSU itself is set to run at 115V. Hard drive and DVDRW are spinning up and initializing... monitor is still black even when I set it to the PC before I power that on... so, guess I'll go ahead with PSU swap anyway.

Thanks for your suggestions!

4. PSU/Mobo Problem? Sep 7, 2007, 21:59 Dan =0)
 
Posting this from my dualie G4 Power Mac...

I went through my usual routine of turning my PC on with its ailing PSU... press power button, see power LED come on without activity, turn off hard switch at the back of PSU, turn the hard switch back on and press soft switch on front... no beans this time around.

I hear some wonderful electrical humming/whining coming from the PSU, so I believe.. the fans are turning, the power LED is on, the DVDRW drive seems to come up properly.. but there is no POST visual on monitor (black screen) and no beeping whatsoever even after waiting about 15 seconds. By this point the humming becomes that much worse, and I can't hold down the soft switch for 8+ seconds to force it off... so I kill it with the PSU's hard switch. I'm really hoping the motherboard or another component on it hasn't gotten completely fried, and that a simple PSU swap will remedy things. The current PSU is the Antec that came with the case, rated around 350W.

Any suggestions otherwise?

Thanks,

Dan =0)

Am I a horrible person because as this video keeps going on and on, doing the same thing over and over, I keep laughing more and more?

I found it disturbing and disgusting...

Though if I close my eyes I don't have to watch, and I'm reminded of Family Guy somehow...

You have a deep-seated fear of opera?

I know a few guys who have a deep-seated hatred of opera, if that helps.

In any case, RIP LP.

8. Upgrades.. Sep 1, 2007, 20:30 Dan =0)
 
won't be upgrading for a while, as the car's been busy trying to empty my wallet as of late.

Anywho, I'm game to jump into a game of gw/bf2/whatever with anyone.

Sounds a lot like:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0267287/

just without total immersion.

(Neat movie, by the way - check it out, if you don't mind hearing Polish. Just know that Miramax added dialogue which was never in the original shoot when they imported it...)

BD: Sorry to hear about the cat

In similar news, my coworker had decided to put down his dog (Boston Terrier) due to brain lesions that were affecting her ability to function. Neat little dog too...

... then again, I just got wind a friend of mine is adopting a foxhound/beagle mix. So not all bad today.

If I had a copy of the game, I could run it through one of the (newer) synths I've got and output it to mp3 easily enough...

...for my own enjoyment, of course.
