I brought it to a computer store and the guy told me it was the mainboard. But due to the board being old and outdated if I wanted my PC to work again he'd replace it with a new one which would mean he'd also sell me a new processor. Then he said it's advisable to buy a completely new one. At this moment my only thought was: What the flying f**k?! I don't even play that much anymore and if I do it is UT and for that my PC is enough.
So I told him I'll think about it, gave him his 20€, took the PC with me and went to the Computer store on the opposite side of the street. He replaced my MSI G31M2 mainboard with an ASUS P5QPL-AM, which happens to have the same chipset, took an hour to dust all my gear and replace the mainboard, tested it, took no working fee (!), even gave me a new cooler for almost nothing and was done. 57€!
Next time I know where to go first.
Now it's all up and working again. And it's a lot less noisy!
So now I am able to work on my frag movie... maybe. I have my theoretical driving test tomorrow and driving lessons every day the next week. If all works out I have my driving license the monday after tomorrow!
That all said, I want to ask for your feedback:
I'm planning on adding a "Song of the day" section on the end of every upcoming post. Good idea or not? It would look like this:
Today's song of the day is a song that I knew for a few months now. It is a mindblowing and beautifully haunting piece of music that has really touched my heart. The description of the song says it all (I corrected it a bit ;)):
"Embracing Solitude is an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. Seven minutes of just you and your thoughts. A track that has no lyrics but still speaks a thousand words. I really cannot say enough about this track, it's just a devastating combination of pure harmony and powerful emotion that gets me every time. I could go on for hours talking about this track. JCB has genuinely created a masterpiece in Drum and Bass."
Please let me know what you think of this new section. Good idea or redundant?
