    Windows 10 Upgrade; Did Not Work!

    Tried to do a download Windows 10 Upgrade from Windows 7 Pro. Did not work out very well. System will not boot. Bios recognizes my HDs but the Windows boot sequence does not. Am using Boot Repair Disk (Linux) right now to back up files. Is it worth trying a clean reinstall of Windows 7 from DVD...

    No Idea What Happened???

    The system in my signature was fine except for one of my old Barracuda HDs stopped working (didn't have time to fudge with it). That was about three weeks ago. Then I went on a week long vacation and everything shut down on the rig properly when I left. When I came back, I tried to power up and...

    Windows 7 God Mode

    This is a pretty good little Windows 7 Optimization page and the best thing I found on it (right near the end) was how to set up Windows 7 God Mode. I had never heard of it before but it puts all Windows commands all in the same place and logically ordered. The Windows 7 Optimization Guide -...

    Finish What You Start

    My parents always told me that and with that being said, here's the situation. Within the last two weeks I have upgraded the machine in my signature with a new GPU, SSD, Hybrid HD, and Windows 7 (about $610). Naturally I'm enjoying the new feel of the rig but now the bottlenecks are getting to...

    Need Help on Choosing Right Card

    We just set up AT&T U-Verse and I need to figure out what kind of card I need to purchase to stick in my tower in order to get wireless connection. Everything else that's wireless works great here with just shy of 12 Mb DL speed (3 laptops & Sony TV). I'll probably be buying from Newegg as I'm...

    New Home

    While the move is not complete, we have purchased a new house in The Woodlands, Texas. Our mortgage is taking longer than usual to set up because we are two foreign nationals with no credit record in the U.S. The mortgage broker actually told me that it would be easier to get approved if we had...

    I just got back to Houston from Colombia to find out from my wife that our good, long time friend and best little buddy named "Scully" must be put down tomorrow. His health is degrading so quickly that to even wait for me to be back to Red Deer in a couple more days would cause him undue pain...
