  1. okay here is a update: last night was a disaster, I just got finished downloading windows 7 and restarted my computer to begin the installation and it just froze at the motherboard for screen and then would shutdown after overheating(i suspect) never getting past the motherboard screen.  I fiddled around disconnecting several things and ended up with a "insert system disc" error.  I had thought my hardrive was going out so I went into bios and the hardrive was shown but it was indicated as slave and my dvd drive was the master drive.I went into the boot order and the hardrive was set as the first drive to boot from and I entered in hardrive as fist just to make sure this fixed the disc error problem.  but next comes another problem I attempted to start the computer and it just made a long beep sound which indicated a dram error.  I have two sticks in so i took one out and then the computer started up, and here I am. guess it may have been bad dram all along. 

  2. Iv'e had this issue, seems that when there's an external drive connected, at times , this happens, so I have to ask, any external drives connected during startup ?

    Do this, start in safe mode, watch to see where it stops, what's loading at the time it slows down, is it "mups.sys " ?

    no external hard drive but next ill start up in safemode to see whats up.

  3. Beats the heck out of that [Verizon DSL 768/128 ] you have in your avatar amc11890.  :wink:

    oh yeah definately it was a nice change.

  4. I got a gigabyte ga-m61p-s3

    Actually when I do have problems and the computer refuses to start up period I just clear the cmos and then it does manage to startup.  I bought it almost two years ago so defintely had it to long to return buts its weird sometimes it starts up fast then it goes through periods where it takes a century to startup.

    supposed to be 10/2 but never make it there

  6. Its getting really bad, I was starting at the motherboard screen for 10 min then it finally moves past that point by the grace of God.  In the past I had trouble with the motherboard malfunctioning and not allowing my computer to start up at all.  Thought I was past that point.  Even in windows It took extrememly long to load all the programs and such.  I built this thing not to long ago too sux that it is failing so bad.  I used to have major overheating problems as well where the computer would have to shut down before exploding, lol.  But its gotta be the motherboard right I mean my memory is fine I switched with other sticks, the processor I think would not be the problem, hard drive no, gotta be the motherboars slowly dieing.

  7. Hows it going everyone, I wonder If anyone remembers me.  To be honest I forgot about this site after I got a new computer and lost all my information.  Also when I lost internet for a month I had to find other means of entertainment.  but I figured I would come back hear and introduce myself again and start learning some more about technology.

  8. if you want to be able to switch between them fast with out unplugging anything then your going to want to get a TV that has more then one HDMI input. Some computer monitors can do this too, you can select which input to use in the menu.

    But since its going to be HDMI on a computer monitor you can forget about sound. You might be better off getting a real TV and a computer monitor. 

    EDIT: if you were to get a LCD tv an try and use it as a computer monitor, its not going to be good because the TV will have a real low resolution of about 1366x768, you could get one at 1920x1080 but your going to pay out the ass for a small one.

    so basically im better off getting a new monitor plus tv?

  9. basically i want to buy a new hdtv for a xbox 360 or ps3 that i want to buy but i also want to purchase a monitor for my computer.  My question is can i hook up my monitor so that i can be used for my ps3/xbox360 as well as for my computer, atleast be able to switch between the two quickly.  Really im never going to be on the computer and play videogames at the same time.

    I want to use the monitor/tv for hd aswell for the ps3/xbox 360
