    Motherboard and Windows not showing all installed ram.

    It is running Windows 7 64-bit ultimate. I have not made any changes with any settings If that matters. I have never had this much ram in any system I have worked with so this is all new to me.

    Motherboard and Windows not showing all installed ram.

    I have been having some issues with ram in my recently assembled computer, first it was compatibility and now I don't know what it doesn't like. I have experience with hardware (Mostly budget) but this is the first system that I was able to put real money into. Anyway hears the important...

    That's nothing, I have been kicking myself for not breaking for food and sleep... :D In reality I have gotten better about that, the first week Skyrim and I were inseparable. With time and completion of the main quest line I have returned to a more reasonable amount of time spent gaming.

    Yes, and more yes. I was introduced to The Elder Scrolls games though Oblivion as well. I have since played many TES, Skyrim is by far better than Oblivion in my opinion and I would and, have been recommending it to anyone with any interest in the series.

    This may be true, I do head back and forth the the collage a ton. One might think I am paranoid, when I look for things I normally have to check every container because I have no idea where I left them. If some one were watching all they would see is a person checking and rechecking every bag...

    Sad news. I have been more than lucky I guess, I haven't lost anything. I have gone as far as to store things in sacks on the floor in the arch-mage quarters.:confused:

    I really don't think they can do that. It is my understanding that any mod would be property of the coder who created it, thus it would be unlawful for Bethesda to sell it like it was theirs. Now charging for the creation tools would be within there rights, and possibly for the use of there mod...

    I would bet that is due to natural regeneration being a percentage of your maximum HP, Magicka or Stamina.

    Maybe if it were on rails it could work with enemies around. Its not like a dragon couldn't get in and out of a battle while taking care of it's self. I would prefer being able to attack while riding though... Possibly only being able to use shouts to attack, but having a reduced cool down...

    Random thought. Think there will be any mods to allow a player to ride a dragon? I just think it would be a fun mod.

    Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Announced for release on 11/11/11.

    That is not a bad idea, and that would probably help my stability issues. But my problem is not with Skyrim being a little buggy, and with the updates not fixing much yet that sort of thing happens. My issue is that Steam cannot respect my settings to not auto update. The idea that they are in...

    Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Announced for release on 11/11/11.

    That thought had crossed my mind. I just wondered if anyone here had done that before for anything similar and if there was anything to be gained. If they could fix the auto update that would be great but I don't want to bug there support staff for things that they cannot do. I just have a...

    I will try these things, well not the eating sand part. I don't think that would end well. I guess I am looking for steam to "fix" things they don't see as an issue. Unless I can prove I have been harmed I doubt this will go anywhere, even if it would be a violation of my end user agreement.

    Just wondering, since this has been bugging me. Is there anything we can do about this? I might just have to go back and read the end user agreement but, I would think there has to be some precedent about this. I don't know where there right to the software begins and my right of ownership...

    You can get there with speech level 100 and a bunch of perk points. I cant say if its worth it, but it is an option.

    I don't need a bounty, my reward would be protecting peoples rights. (well virtual people's virtual rights) I really might take the time to try and purge Skyrim of religious prosecution and racism. I don't know how well that would go considering the number of people I would have to kill, but it...

    I like where your going. If I rid the land of all the racists and the Justicars, I can chose any side I want without becoming like one of them. I like the idea of a free and non racist Skyrim. It might need a little repopulating but worth it.

    All I do is try and accept when its my problem. No point blaming the game for my actions, if I wanted a challenge I should of never mastered alchemy, smiting, and enchanting. I did refrain from enchanting my weapons and armor though. I only use an enchanted ring and necklace. Any more and I...

    You can call me strange, but I don't feel like I have cheated if I'm taking advantage of a glitch or flaw in the game. When I use the console it feels too easy and I tend to lose interest faster. I understand the results are the same and the only one I am fooling is myself but I seem to do...

    Your basic healing spell should be more than effective for a mudcrab battle. And if it is not at first it will be as you level up and increase your heavy armor level. Just be ready for a long uneventful battle. The best part of my battle was the couple of times the mudcrab stopped attacking for...

    That would work now. When I did this my armor level was really low and I would be willing to bet I would have been launched in one hit. Sad part is I couldn't AFK the mudcrab. I had to heal every so often. I went from heavy armor level 25 ish to 70.

    I found a mudcrab, it was a long battle. In game time it lasted all day and into the night, some time in the early morning I had finally stared that mudcrab to death. I more than doubled my heavy armor and block skills.

    I know your problem... I too have had 75+ pounds of ingredients on me at one time or another. I have to tell myself not to pick flowers and catch butterfly's. I some how end up with at least 30 pounds of junk that I can never remember where or when I picked it up.

    Yes, it only matters when improving weapons and armor. I wasted a few potions before I noticed that.

    Don't forget the "notched pickaxe", if I recall right it gives another 10% increase to smiting.

    I would start with a helmet, may not be a ton of armor but it all helps. The amulet will help, dunno if it is worth it though. Might also try a shield and using only one weapon, the ability to block may prove more useful than the second weapon in some cases. And have you upgraded the condition...

    One question... Is there a heat sink for your CPU? I'm not seeing it in your added pic. Don't think I see a CPU as well... Other wise good job finding some one who plays games.

    I have points in decapitate mace and axe, they all have benefits. The axe and mace skills are a little dependent on who your fighting for which is more effective, and the decapitation is just handy. I like to use a mace in one hand and an axe in the other when dual wielding. I feel it gives me a...

    You can get the guide book and look it up, or look it up online. Since you can mix random ingredients you just need to know that the end result will be worth the effort. As for a good potion to level with, I suggest mixing a giants toe with wheat. It makes a high value potion, and its resale can...
