System's been wonky for a while, based on some error messages I thought it was my video card. Fine, I had a ATI 3870, it was probably time for an upgade so I got a ATI 6950. Things seemed good for a while, then I noticed a 160GB HDD I had wasn't showing up under windows - and in the BIOS, no super big deal it was old and I only had some old ripped movies on it. Removed, no problems.

Then this week it started bluescreening again... @#$*!!! I'm thinking it must be windows, as it was a Vista -> Win 7 upgrade. Then Friday.... Blue Screen NTFS.SYS... Bang Head Censored And it won't come back.. phuck.......

Friday night when I get home I do a little testing, nothing. Fine I have a WD 500GB SATA drive sitting around that I have never used (bought it when I thought maybe it was part of Misty's strange rebooting problem). Start installing a fresh copy of Win 7 Ultimate, and take the old drive out. I check and see there is a Firmware update for the drive, so I plug it into a USB/eSATA drive bay I have it works so I download all my doc's/pic's/music to my laptop (I need a backup drive badly), and put it back into my system flash it... still nothing. Works once more in the USB drive and then... Bad Air Flush .

Having to reinstall all this sux's a$$!

O'well... at least tomorrow I get to see my 49ers kick the Squak out of the SeaChickens.

Son of a motherless goat!!! Now it looks like the raid controller on my server's mother board is taking a cr@p! So now I gotta go buy new parts... system is over 4yrs old, but... d@am it! I don't want to buy all this sh*t right now, and have to reinstall my server.

Thank gawd at least I have it back up every night.

Yeah.... I hate computers.

Backups are corrupted apparently too... OO and the new raid controller reports the SAME HDD's as .1GB (that's POINT 1) smaller... so Windows won't ever restore to those drives.

F it! Rebuild from scratch time. F up the domain, F up Exchange.. F it! Stupid computers.... stupid windows...

OOO And a preemptive...

F U!! (Most likely to Charlie and Jason... I just feel him wanting to dig in the claws on this one now).

Your still using Windows 7? that's so 2009. Windows 8 is where all the cool kids hang out.

Grin

If you surf pr0n on Windows 8, are you a metro sexual?
