I've used pcs for years and had my share of issues. I'm not a hardware person, I'm into 3d animation and art. But this latest batch of problems has me pulling my hair out and gnashing my teeth. I'm loosing it.
My pc startes up. Gets into windows xp sp2. When I open a game or program it cashes the software. Then randomly it restarts the pc. I'm not in control here. Sometimes, when the PC feels like it, it gives me an error on boot that my startup files are corrupt and need to be repaired. So I repair it and.. get the same error. Is my PC f'sckin with me?
I dl'ed the Ultimate Boot CD and ran the Dell Diagnostic proggy.
Everything passes but the HD read test; it doesn't give me an error
just freezes up and needs to be hard reset.
Ok, I can understand a dead drive - it happens. Life goes on. WRONG.
So I put a brand spanking new HD in and I get the same problem; Dell diagnostic freezes of HD read test.
I've run several scanners off the UBCD and they also hard crash on HD tests.
I have swapped out the IDE cable. Replaced the RAM. Set the CD as the primary master and the new HD as secondary master. Flashed the BIOS from A09 to A08 and baaaack to A09. Set the BIOS to default. Had 2 local tech stores run tests on it - with no results other than 'something' is wrong. Whats a guy gotta do to get this beast going? I'm seriously considering hireing a priest, buying holy water and looking for a virgin. (j/k)
Tyler Durden was right. The things you own end up owning you. Help me?

rendered versions. A saved project file will allow the animation to be
edited or tweaked.<br />
Publish the rendered video. General video websites, such as
YouTube and Metacafe, are excellent publishing platforms. If the
animation is published to a public website, a Creative Commons copyright
should be added to the end credits.<br /></li><br /><br /><br /><a href="http://brightlink.illusion3d.hop.clickbank.net/" style="font-weight: bold;">SOFTWARE-AIDED GUIDE TO 3-D ANIMATION CREATION IS NOW OPEN, ACCESS HERE ..</a>.. <br />
