Hey guys! So there is my issue. On Monday someone turn my computer off without shutting down my VM's and now when I want to turn them back on folding I get this error message
Error while powering on: The virtual machine appears to be in use.
Do you know guys anything about that? I don't really want to re do all my setting so if you can help me I would really appreciate!

Thx guys

I don't see it was on the [email protected] at first... I tough you was not able to boot a Gigabyte board :haha:

don't know for the VM , do you try to shut down the computer and reboot. do you see it in the process . check the all user too. Try to boot only the VM, not the folding application, click the vmware icon.. and after shit it down in the menu it may be clear some stuf stay someplace..

bon il faut que j'aille travailler ma femme est au bureau ta..:angry2:

Well I have just re-do my setting adding a fast USB drive to my setting in ready boost maybe the VM can get some memory from there so I will not need to buy extra 4GB some day later and will be able to spend my money other were.

Well mark guess what, it do work. Linux VM with the -BigADV can use flash drive for memory. It's a bit slower ( about 5% compare to before ) but it's pretty good:p

I will have more digest a 5% decrease than a $ 320 on memory :thumb: good finding
It's way better compare to my paycheck...about little under 400 for 2 week my god and I just start my studie's omg...It will be a hard time for computer hardware for the next few months but it will be worthy for long term.

Martin. go to school. in 1980 I was going to university, was pretty good in Chemistry, I drop it for the excitement of the computer that apear on the market at the time, and I go college in electronic. look at the situation, tech are underpay. an electrician is well more pay.. I have a guy last week with a Bac in computer science from the Montreal university, who come to apply to work for me, he was asking $ 10 - $ 12 and hours, it's a shame this industry

oh much I regret to have stop my study.

That's why I carry on with mine:thumb: but the time you are in school your pay is so low:blarg: I enjoy summer because I will be able to work more so I will be able to buy new hardware to fold even more:whistle:
